The establishing of the Student Army Training Corp brought four hundred men to our campus, increasing the total enrollment of the institution con- siderably. The old regime was broken and tho we may be several years in getting back on a definite basis, the change brought about by the imbibing of the new ideas with the old can not help but be advantageous. The former mode of living at Millikin was highly commendable but the present state of turmoil into which our country has been thrown can not help but cast its shadow on our college. The very fact that Millikin was given the privilege of experiencing a bit of the hardships of an army camp will put her more in tune with the universe so that her progress will be steadfastly onward. In this, the Millidek, we have endeavored to show you the results of this new feeling on our student body. Not only have we pictured to you the daily happenings but we have tried to make you feel the beat of the pulsing heart of Millikin. As such we wish you to interpret it. Not as a reference book or a cross section view of our college life but as a bit of the real life which Millikin students have lived this year. The Editor. 3 To Walter John Risley, our co-worker, advisor and friend, we dedicate this book. Service Hymn Danger scorning, death defying Lo they feared these least of all ! Where an outraged trust was crying, Answered they to duty ' s call, Noble duty! hearts aglow Where you call us, we will go ! Left they long loved things behind them And young manhood ' s rising dream, Gave youth ' s powers ; wit, strength entwined them Undertook they task supreme Noble service! Each afar! There are they, and here — the star! Star of azure, field of whiteness, Pure and spotless, bound in red; Sweet in pathos, bold in brightness, Strength and youth to service wed, Noble service, one and all, Serve not we who wait the call? This our flag, 0 God, is dearest, Glad resolve in noble pain ; Thou, for whom all stars shine clearest, Grant these shall not shine in vain, Grant they beam, undimmed to see Righteous Peace in Victory. — Marie Welch, ' 21. As we read the words of our Service Hymn, we think of these boys of Millikin whose blue stars on the service flag have turned to gold.

Our Student Council clearly shows that Millikin has taken advantage of this progressive policy. First, under the leadership of Floyd Lee, and later under that of Preston McClelland, the Student Council has made its influence felt in col- lege affairs. During the period when the S. A. T. C. was absorbing every- one ' s att ention, it was to a large extent, the work of the Council that kept the barrier between the college and the army camp so insignificant. It did this by decorations and parades to show loyal support of Millikin ' s football team; it gave a " First Night Off " when the soldiers flocked over to the university building for a social gathering and a regular jubilee. The Council arranged for the college sings, which were the sourse of so much enjoyment during the existence of the S. A. T. C, to be continued during the year. It has taken an active part in promoting the reform of Millikin ' s method of financing college organizations. By co-operation with Miss McCaslin ' s E ' nglish class, a number of " collegesque " affairs were planned and accomplished, such as a Post-Exam Jubilee, Founders ' Day and Class Day. These are a few of the ways in which the Council has made its influ- ence felt duri ng the college year. The Student Council of Millikin has always conducted itself in such a manner that it has retained the respect and confidence of the school, and its attitude toward college activities is worthy of the high commendation accorded it. 67 Inetitil Sangamon Camp Fire President Secretary Treasurer Guardian Camille Barnett Mary Barrows Helen Bean Violet Bean Margaret Browne Miriam Curdling Catalina Davis Sarah Dobson Esther Finley Geneva Gregory Georgia Hazzard Ruth Osmanson Mary Zua Hazzard Miss Robbins MEMBERS Mary Zua Hazzard Miriam Herron Katherine Hilti Blanche Hutchinson Camilla Laws Marie Nelson Edna Neibergall Ruth Osmanson Mary Esther Parkinson Marjorie Sanborn Mercedes Seidler 68 Dramatic Art Club OFFICERS Vice-President Secretary Treasurer President Jewell Harris Leonard Shurtz Catharine Milligan Lawrence Fritz The Dramatic Art Club was divided early in the year into six sections of twenty members, and these different groups have given a play, following the regular business meeting, every two weeks.

W. C. A. wants to put a chain of friendship around the world, just so the Millikin Association wants to torge a strong link m that chain That con- struction begins with those traditional get-acquainted parties the reception to new students where one wears her best smile and party dress, and the walkout where the freshman learns to call someone besides her roommate by her first name. It continues with the Big Sister movement which is invaluable in forming new friendships; with the student Sunday school classes where many students learn to know that Greatest Friend- with the discussion groups where our world friendships are discussed; with the vesper teas at the city Y. W. where we meet and make friends with the members of the other association; with the war fund where we showed our fellowship with the Blue Triangle workers at the front; at the party where we learned to make wooly good luck dolls for the French Orphan Fund; at Geneva where our delegation made menas in forty colleges; and finally, in the regular devotional meetings where we meet such worth while people as Miss Helen Bennett, Dr. Blake, and our own faculty and stu- dents Linked with the idea of friendship comes its inseparable companion, service- service in every path where there is friendship. Through friendship and service we come to the Association ' s goal " to unite students in loyalty to Jesus Christ and to send them out in service for him. " 71 72 M It FI1!II« metmu-iymemm Y. M. C.

C. on school activities and organizations have been numerous and varied. Not the least of these at Millikin was its effect on the men ' s glee club. At the beginning of the year the director and the officers of the club were simply deluged with aspiring young Carusoes and McCormacks. About fifty men were selected for the club, and the glee club " detail " coming over from camp to the university two evenings a week became a regular part of the life. With the exodus of the S. A. T. C. came a blow to the club as a num- ber of the members left the university. Several more tryouts were given, however, and the vacancies were filled with little trouble. About thirty men remained in the club. A number of good trips were taken by the club this year, and people usually seemed to enjoy the concerts. Clinton, Shelbyville, Findlay and Macon were among those towns who inflicted themselves with a visit from this organization. The home concert was given on Thursday evening, April twenty- fourth, in the university auditorium. Several new features were added to the concert this year, and it was said to be a fairly successful concert. At any rate the boys who participated were allowed to live, and that in itself is an excellent indication.

The Millidek believes it altogether appropriate to include in this volume a space dedicated to levivmg among ihe liiends or me college some re- memberances of that great occasion. To attempt to give a biography of Theodore Roosevelt would be super! luous, to enumeiate his services would be equally unnecessaiy. Let us remember that Washington created the United States, Lincoln preserved them, and Kooseveit put them on the map. And, Millikin students, let us remember to keep before us the example of the man who started us on our way; may we always imitate his desire for truth, his loyalty and devotion to the causes he believed were right, and the indominatable energy and fight with which he worked for their triumph. The dedicatory exercises of our university occurred on the afternoon of June 4, 1903. The arrival of President Roosevelt ' s train was announc- ed by the booming of cannon, and after being introduced by President Mills of the board of managers, to the vast company that filled the campus around the platform, he spoke as follows: " My fellow citizens, I count myself fortunate in being given the privilege of dedicating this university, and we are all as Americans to be congratulated that there are among us men who so worthily apply the fortunes that they have made in devoting a portion of their fortunes to the cause of education in this country. (Turning to Mr. Millikin) Mr. Millikin, I feel that as an American it is proper for me to express to you and to those like you the obligation that good Americans feel for what you and they have done in this university and in other educational in- stitutions throughout the land. " I am especially pleased that I am to take part in the dedication of an institution of learning where so much of the teaching is to be with the direct view to an industrial betterment of the country. Ours is an age of specialization and the man who is to do the highest industrial work will find himself immeasurably better prepared for it if he can have had the proper kind of industrial training. " I congratulate all of the men and women whom I address because this building is consecrated to such a purpose ; and that it is being erected here- for not only does such an institution benefit the students, benefit those supposed to be the only beneficiaries, but it also indirectly helps all of us; because it becomes at once the center for the diffusion of learning, the diffusion of education. " And now a word to the students, to those who will benefit by what has been done; to whom much has been given, from them much shall rightly be expected. . . " The man who has received an education which he owes in pait either to the state or to a private gift, has accepted a favor which, as a self-respecting American citizen, he is bound to return. He can return 90 it in but one way. There is no return he can make to his alma mater, there is no return he can make in the way of physical repayment upon what has been spent on his education, either to the state or to the uni- versity, or to the donor who benefits the university. " The return must be made in the way ot good citizenship m the country The return for an education must take me form of the highest possible achievement on the part of the man who has received the edu- cation The college man is entitled to no privilege because he has re- ceived a college education but he is to be held peculiarly accountable and be held to have acquired to a peculiar degree new responsibilities, ine man tne boy, wnose parents by their thrift ana saving, or wnom me su e by its erection of public schools, high schools, and universities, or to whom outside benefactors through the schools of learning have given the chance to acquire special training to fit him in the struggle for life, is bound to show that he has in him the quality to make good use of wnat has been given to him. • . " Exactly as we rightly hold that the man who has had a good train- ing and advantages at home is one on whom we have a right to call for the proper performance of duty, both in his home and with reference to the state, so we have that same right to demand an extra quality of service from the boy or girl, the young man or the young woman who has had the benefit of training, general or technical, m an institution such as this. . . , , , " In our American life no man is entitled to receive what he does not in some way make return for, and the student, the cohere grauuaoe, must make the return for the training that he has received in the shape of good citizenship in the community at large. And let me m closing say to you, men and women of Illinois, that in traveling through your state, much as I am impressed by its boundless beauty and fertility, much though I am impressed by what nature and Providence have done for you, and by the way in which you have taken advantage of the gifts and advantages put at your disposal, I am even more impressed by me way in which you have recognized that you have more than material needs for which to care. " It is of course the merest truism to say that natural advantages count only so far as they are made of use by the average citizen and the success or failure of our American government in the future depends upon what kind of men and women the boys and girls of today turn out, and I congratulate you upon the evidences I have seen that you appreciate that fact, that you are training them in your homes, in the schools, in the colleges, such as this. , " The American boy and girl of today should turn into the kind of man, the kind of woman tomorrow who will be enabled to carry on with unfaltering courage and strength the work that the Americans of the past have done. We have great problems before us as a nation. We have solved great problems in the past and we can do our duty m the future only on condition that we breed the same kind of man and woman that we have had in the past. . Illinois sprang to the front and made the wonderful record it did in the Civil war because Illinois had the right stuff for citizenship within its borders (Applause.) And I believe that the people of all this country will rise to the level of the needs of the future because I believe we will continue to train properly the right type of citizenship to do the duties of the future. I thank you. " 91 Heart ' s Deshe It had danced up there In the star-dust patn of the milky way, For a million yeais, 1 guess — Darting its rays of silver and blue, Winking its brightness of joy and life Down to earth and to me each night. I wished it for my own, That glittering star of blue and white, — To hold in my hands, To warm my heart, — To light my life with its fire, — To keep it always so dazzling blight, A fragment of Heart ' s Desire. And so one night, The blue haze diming the world, — The fire-pointing star from the milky way Was given me for mine own, — To hold in my hands, To warm my heart To light my life with its fire. But my star was lonely and sad I think For its home in the ribbon of light, And in my hands my Heart ' s Desire Was a lump of lifeless black. — Jenny M. Long. 92 M I L I T A R Stafl Lieutenant C. H.

A. T. C. The S. A. T. C. at Millikin was strictly a business affair from be- ginning to end. The university at large tried to believe for some weeks that the men were first, in college, and second, in the army. But if we are honest, as we look back over those months, we know that those men were in the army first, and second in college, if indeed there was any college, and real college that is. Of course the men came to classes, but classes don ' t mean college and as for pure college life, we are inclined to doubt whether they even got a glimpse of it. The erection of the barracks and the mess hall was strictly a busi- ness proposition. In order to have them completed in time without waiting for all the necessary Red Tape, the citizens of Decatur respond- ed to the emergency by financial backing. When the barracks could not be completed by the time the men were inducted, citizens of Decatur again came forward and offered homes for 450 men. In due time, how- ever, the barracks were completed and the men moved in. They soon found that life was strictly a business proposition too. The following was the day ' s schedule: 6:00 Reveille 7:00 Breakfast 7:30- 9 30 Military Drill 9:30- 12 :00 College Classes 12:30 Mess 1:00- 3 :30 College Classes 3:30- ■ 5 :30 Athletics and Military Drill 6:00 Supper 7:30- - 9 :30 Supervised Study 10:00 Taps Captain Steinbrenner was another purely business factor. During the first few weeks he was in command both here and at Illinois College at Jacksonville. He spent two years at the University of Wisconsin and three years at Northwestern. He received his commission from Fort Sheridan and spent some time at Camp Grant before coming to Millikin. He was sent to Cornwall-on-the-Hudson as instructor in Military Science, and was succeeded by Lieutenant Castle H. Farrish. He came from St. Viator ' s at Bourmonnais, Illinois, where he was in command of an S. A. T. C. unit. Before that time he had been at Fish University, Nashville, Tennessee. He had been in the army a year and a half, receiving his commission at Fort Snelling, Minnesota. Lieutenants Paul Jones of Camp Perry, Ohio, Paul Schofield of Notre Dame, and our Lieutenant Brannon completed the staff of officers. Even after the armistice was signe d, the men found that life was still a business proposition and it was a great day when the final dis- charge papers came. Now the barracks have been sold, and have been torn down, the government has settled with the University, and, most of the men have received the sixty dollar bonus check; thus have passed the visible signs of Millikin Student Army Training Corp. 96 97 MUM Divisions of Service I.

But turning to our lexicon, we perceive that " mess " is a " mixture of things in disorder " ; so without any further ellucidation of our ideas, feeling that if you have read this far the meaning of " mess " is perfectly translucent, we close this chaos of conundrums, congratulating ourselves upon the contin- uity of the existence of the feeling that the inference is obvious. Reveille Upon collaboration with my friend, Webster, the ramifications of whose knowledge is quite scintillating and the effulgence of whose wit is quite extraordinary and diabetes, the following correlated definition was found, corroborating our opinion on the matter. According to our esteemed commentator and contemporary, we find " reveille " to mean " a signal that it is time for soldiers to rise. " At the mellow blast of the trumpet, the privates, lance-corporals, and corporals turn horizontally upon their left sides, inhale deeply and exhale twice, exclaiming in the same breath with cadence, " 0 dear me, it is time to arise, clothe ourselves and begin the duties of the day! " The penalty for failure to hear the clarion call of the trumpet is that of having the left-ear severed from the cranium, with the admonition that next time it will be both ears. Uniforms A mad grabbing of shirts, a pair of shoes, number 12, tossed to you when you normally wear sevens, scratchy wool underwear two sizes small, trousers and a blouse built for a Cyclops, a hat which would keep your ears warm, leggings capable of surrounding both legs at once — all this is the issue of uniforms. Is it any wonder one optimistic private remarked that he got a good fit in shoe strings, belt, and neck tie? 103 S O C I A Tlie Da rices How we wish we could tell about all of the dances of the year. But of course we can ' t. However, it would certainly be inconsistent to neglect these functions altogether, and so we will give a petite resume of the three dances which were most nearly all-Millikin affairs: the Pan-Hellenic dance, and the two S. A. T. C. dances. Pan-Hellenic Dance The Pan-Hellenic dance given at the Orlando Hotel proved a most en- joyable event. Goforth ' s Orchestra from Bloomington furnished the real music, punch was served during the evening. Palms decorated the bril- liantly lighted ball room, — a beautiful setting for the attractive evening gowns of the girl s. Everyone felt particularly gay. The war was over, one didn ' t feel unpatriotic in an evening gown, — and who could keep from dancing to that music ! First S. A. T. C. Dance Elks Hall was gaily decorated in flags and bunting for the first dance of the year, — the S. A. T. C. dance held on Saturday evening, November 30. An S. A. T. C. orchestra furnished the real jazzy music, and the one hundred and fifty people present enjoyed the evening to the utmost. Chaperones were: Mrs. Walker, Miss Robbins, Professor and Mrs. Cole, and the Lieutenants. 106 decona S. A. T. C. Dance The second S. A. T. C. dance and party was held Friday night, Decem- ber 13. A dinner dance with a theatre party afterwards, — such was the evening ' s entertainment. For the first time, the girls were freely allowed on the S. A. T. C. premises, and allowed to see the interior of the mess hall and barracks. We ate soldier-fashion at the long tables,, then, lured by the mean sounds coming from the Gym., hurried over there to dance. About time for the last show, the party broke up, and deserted the Gym. for the Lincoln Square. Altogether the evening was one of the most en- joyable of the year. Tke Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. Reception The annual reception given every fall by the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. for all Millikin students and faculty was held on September 18, this year. The main corridors were turned into one large continuous reception room, where a ukelele orchestra thrummed the latest in songs, where huge bowls of punch tempted the ever-thirsty, and where crowds of new-comers and old-comers gossiped, laughed, and chattered. With the help of the slips carefully pinned upon you, which told your name, it was not long before you knew everybody. This custom of holding a get-acquainted party at the very beginning of school is a Millikin tradition which we grow to appreciate more every year. Tlie First Ni lit Off One of the most enjoyable all-Millikin parties was the " First Night Off " held November 15, just after quarantine. We were all desperate for a little excitement after the monotonous confinement to home and bar- racks, and we were given a " night off " of hilarity as a safety valve. The party was informal to the last degree, and everyone came. Baskets ox apples and pans of doughnuts stood about the corridors, through which thronged, — oh, everybody in school. Staid old classrooms witnessed sights they had never beheld before, and, I doubt not, look back on that night as fondly as any of us. Signs such as: Faculty Rack, Movies, Loafing Al- lowed, hung on doors, enticed us within. The whole faculty was there, but there were no chaperones. ( " Be specific, " cries our English I train- ing. We shall.) A student wag wrote under the Loafing Allowed sign, " No Faculty Allowed. " A crowd of students flocked in, and the door was closed. Everyone was having a glorious time when the faculty de- scended. The students were ousted, and the faculty closed the door, upon which was fastened the sign. It now bore a third inscription: " No students admitted. " Until the big vaudeville show in the auditorium was announced, soft music and gay chatter were heard behind the doors. You remember the vaudeville show. Delmar Conklin ' s saxophone solos fascinated even Prexy, the girls ' movie show shocked even the Fresh- men, and all the other acts delighted even — me. Best of all, we had a chance, that night, to meet a few of the opposite sex. That case you see going down the hall now, probably had its embryonic development the evening of November 15. Here ' s hoping for another " night off. " 107 Btt Class Parties FRESHMAN AND SOPHOMORE PARTIES Shall we tell the whole story or not. we think we will, for Fresh- men as well as Sophomores will re- member the ice-cream fight long atter the stunts, the dates, and the real " eats " have gone with the memory of Biology Outlines, and French verbs. Mow it is a well- known tradition that all Freshman and Sophomore classes shall at- tempt to steal the others ' ice- cream, on the night of the class parties. It would seem, in such an exchange, that the only persons really hurt would be the poor t classmen who did the heaving and ' carrying. ' Tis true, but alas! the Sophomore ice-cream, set temptingly on the K. D. X. back porch, the night of February 22, 1919, proved to be frozen garbage when opened by victorious (?) Freshmen, in the mess hall. It ' s a long tale, friends, and you will now remember the other details ; how the Freshman ice-cream disappeared, no one knows where, and how the Freshmen stormed the Kappa Delt house without apparent success. How was it settled? I ' ll never tell, but if you really want to know, you might see Prof. Rislev, Charles Mills, or John Mann. After the melee, the Freshmen returned to the mess hall, and spent the evening in stunts ; the Sophomores entertained themselves similarly at the K. D. X. house. (Sorry the climax couldn ' t have come at the end, but we must tell the truth ) . ream Pa y Gonfip ,wr,ep S 108 Junior Class Partij The juniors had their party at the Tri Delt house. The most notable events of the evening- were: the non-arrival of a, the, any, chaperone, and the arrival of two ice-cream freezers in- stead of one. The only thing re- sembling a scramble took place over the three men. Mr. Sea Fong Lee, the fourth, arrived too early, thought he had made a mistake, and retired. Rev. James M. Hamilton of Jerusa- lem, Palestine, Mr. Preston Mc- Clelland, the versatile heart smasher of Oak Crest, and Mr. Claude Wise, mostly of the Book Store, remained to be duly lion- ized. It must be nice to be a man these days ! Diversions were: one act play by McClel- land and Hamman, entitled, " Oatmeal is nourishing. Eat it you sinner " ; a free-for-all par- ticipation in " Shouting Prove rbs PETE AND pHiL H. ARE OftT E-AL Fiends. (greatly enjoyed by Rev. H.) ; the fam- ilies of Gumps, Hooligans, etc. ; and, best of all, the bountiful refreshments. President Taulor ' s Reception On the evening of May 9, 1918, President and Mrs. Taylor enter- tained the members of the senior class, the board of managers, and the faculty, at a delightful informal reception. A patriotic note was evident. The house was decorated in flags, and proved an appropriate as well as artistic background for the numerous Red Cross nurses and soldiers. Dainty spring flowers added a delicate touch to the appearance of the dining porch. A most enjoyable evening was spent by all. 109 Freshman-Sophomore Reception On May 16, 1918, the Freshman and Sophomore classes entertained the high school seniors, and the academy seniors, at the annual reception. The guests and their entertainers assembled early in the evening, in the f ront corridor of the Liberal Arts Hall. Here they were tagged with their names, and were marshaled to the receiving line. After safely passing the celebrities without serious foux pas, everyone entered the auditorium, where the program of the evening was given. EVery part of the enter- tainment was greatly enjoyed. It was: A. Songs by the Millikin Quartet Messrs. Lanum, Hudson, Rubottom and Tippett B. Solo Dance Doris Eileen Whitmer C. Vocal Solo— " The Sunshine of Your Smile " Miss Jessie Johnson D. Piano Solo— " The Papillon " Miss Evelyn Wait E. Playlet— " His Freshman Year " The cast for the playlet, which was especially enjoyed, was: The Freshman Louis Stitt The Girl _._ ______ " „.„_ _ Vera Lee The Freshman (25 years later)— William Hayes The sketch was cleverly planned, and showed some excellent acting. The curtain rose, showing William Hayes, as the older man, seated com- fortably with pipe and books. As he reminisced, his thoughts were acted out by Miss Lee and Mr. Stitt, and showed the main events of his Fresh- man year at Millikin. After the program, refreshments were served in the corridors. 110 Post E xam Juki ee The Dec. invitation read : Time: 5:30 Place: Mess Hall When: Saturday, February 1 Everybody bring- a lunch in a shoe box. We were there, and we did ! At 5:30 the mess hall showed laughing groups of students and faculty eating their picnic lunches in picnic style, while the lazy ones who had brought no lunch kept the Y. W. girls busy at their improvised cafeteria in the end of the hall. Pies, beans, popcorn, crackerjack, ?j peanuts, sandwiches, pop, and all the xh. other good things disappeared rapidly. But a little after six, the real fun began. Tables were pushed back, and the show commenced. The Zeta ' s Middy Girls, the Pi Phi Ragtime Wedding, the Alpha Chi Minstrel Show, and all the other stunts, — they were good, you ' ll have to admit it. After the show, the party transferred itself to the gym, to help the team wallop McKendrie. . CLAIRE.. Ill Dandelion Contest On the afternoon of May 8, 1918, all ye knights and ladies flocked to the front campus to see which of six chosen beauties should win the title of " queen of love and beauty, " — which young lady, backed by the most numerous and energetic admirers, should be established " Dandelion Queen, " and be crowned with the beautiful golden wreath thereof. They witnessed an amusing and in every way enjoyable spectacle. Discarding such hampering apparel as coats and vests, the sturdy knights rolled up their sleeves, seized their trusty knives, and, at a given signal, entered the fray. For twenty long minutes they battled, bending closely to their tasks, and heaping up boxes and baskets with the green and gold trophies. The marshals of the field lowered their batons; the contest was over! The trophies were eagerly counted, and the result was hailed with great acclamation by the multitude. Mildred Mathes was the chosen queen. With much ceremony the ciueen was led to the throne by Archbishop " Tuffy " Moore. In a speech of great length and eloquence, the archbishop attested to the charms of the chosen queen, whom he then escorted from her seat and delivered to her own faithful knight, who, still panting from his recent exertion, awaited her with great pride. 112 There are short girls and tall girls, blue-eyed girls and brown-eyed girls, black haired girls and most delightfully auburn haired girls, engaged girls as well as engaging girls, but the point is, they are all, individually, collectively, and undeniably, Millikin girls. And since they are Millikin girls, know ye that the oft quoted maxim, " beauty is only skin deep, " must here give place to another theme sentence — " handsome is as handsome does. " Pretty girls they are, ' tis true, but glance along the list and notice that they are girls who are worth while in many other ways as well. The freshmen among them will bear out this statement in the next few years; the upper-classmen are responsible for its being made. They are pretty girls, we repeat, but they are pretty Mil- likin girls, — and useful as well as ornamental. 115 117 118 119 120 " Popular — Beloved by the people ; pleasing to people in general, or to many people, " says Webster ' s Unabridged. Of course, old Noah W. made some mistakes. In support of this statement let us cite his definition of a university — " A place for study; an institution of higher learning. " But in most cases, we contend, the old gentleman was about right, and here is an excellent piece of evidence to prove his veracity. After three years in which to prove themselves, these Millikinites, selected as the most popular of our number, are certainly " beloved by the people ; pleasing to people in general or to many people. " 121 KeMlllieTL NlnetifiiMEefei ■MOT CAMPUS TYPES ATHLETE Sv»ecV Yo«nfcTK«ng G-ir n " i+Vi " " Diamond 122 Millikin Conservatory of Music Millikin Conservatory of Music was organized in 1903 by Herman H. Kaeuper. The building was erected and dedicated to Mr. Kaeuper in 1913, in recognition of his work. Mr. Kaeuper spent months of investigation that we might have the best in tone-profmg, ventilation, heating and acoustics. He visited various conservatories and corresponded with lead- ing musicians and scientists in America and Europe. Since that time the growth and development of the conservatory has been phenomenal. Besides being one of the best equipped buildings for the study of music in the world, the faculty is made up of the most efficient and up-to- date instructors, a large number of them having studied abroad and with the leading musicians in this country. Because of the high standards which these people have set and upheld for Millikin Conservatory, her graduates are recognized by leading musicians and are able to compete successfully for positions of most rigid requirements. Besides this, the standard for music in Decatur has been raised and the people of the city greatly bene- fited by the opportunity of hearing the Minneapolis Symphony and The Artists Series and student recitals. 123 Artist s Recitals The opening concert of the Artists ' Series on Nov. 25 was doubly in- teresting from the fact that Thelma Given, the young violinist, who ap- peared before us, was a former Decatur girl and student in our own violin department at Millikin. At the age of 15, Miss Given left Decatur for Russia where she became one of Leopold Auer ' s favorite pupils and at the outbreak of the Russian revolution she returned to America where she ap- peared first in Carnegie Hall, New York City. Her instrument is a very valuable, old Quarnerius violin. Miss Given delighted her large audience of friends by her playing which showed her to be a student who has mastered her art. She excels in the peculiar beauty of her tones. One of the best artists who has ever come to us was Joseph Bonnet the famous organist who appeared at the First Baptist Church, January 14. Mr. Bonnet has a very widespread fame as organist, his career having begun at the age of fourteen when he became organist of St. Nicholas and later of St. Michael ' s church in Bordeaux, his native town. He studied in Paris with Alexander Guilmant and won the first prize for organ playing and improvization. Later he won the position as organist of St. Eustace in competition with men from Paris Conservatory who had won first prizes also. He spent some time in service before making his tour in America. His program consisted of numbers from Purcell, N. de Grigny, Cler- ambault, Bach, Handel, Cesar Franck, Debussy, and some of his own compositions. The entire program was wonderfully given. 124 On February 25, Charles W. Clark, one of the greatest American bari- tones, came to us with a varied program of Italian, French and English songs. Two of the composers in which we were especially interested were Richard Czerwonky and Rudolph Ganz, the former well known to us as violinist in the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra, and the latter the pianist and composer whom we heard two years ago. Mr. Clark was very pleas- ing in his interpretation of even the simplest songs and had a clear enunciation. He brought his concert to a close with the dramatic render- ing of the Devil ' s Love Song from Faust by Gilberte. Another old friend who returned to us on January 30 was Cornelius Van Vliet, ' cellist, who has appeared here several times with the Minne- apolis Symphony Orchestra. He began his concert with numbers from the old composers as far back as Parpora and came up through the different schools until he reached the modern music of MacDowell and Cassella. His concert was a great success, the audience encoring him again and again. He has a refined style and tone which go to show what an artist is capable of doing with the ' cello. Mr. D. M. Swarthout played his accom- paniments. On April 14, Serge Prokof ieff appeared in the place of Ethel Leginska who was unable to appear because of illness. Mr. Prokofieff is a Russian pianist with a wonderful technique and an amazing speed. His program consisted of Russian music and his interpretation and rendition showed him to be a master to the art. 125 Faculty and Students Recitals One of the biggest things which has been done by the Millikin and Decatur people this year was the Verdi " Requiem " which was given under the direction of Mr. D. M. Swarthout in the Second Presbyterian Church in honor of the soldier dead of Decatur and Macon County, February 20, by the Oratorio choir of seventy voices. Accompaniments were played by Mr. M. L. Swarthout at the piano, Miss Ruth Brown at the organ, Miss Florence Brown, and Lyle Downey, ' cello. This was the biggest and best piece of work which the chorus has ever done in the three preceding years. The soloists were John B. Miller, tenor; Esther Muenstermann, mezzo- soprano, Lucille Stevenson, soprano; and Burton Thatcher, bass. The opening number of the program was the big patriotic number, Land of Our Hearts by Chadwick. On Novembr 14, F. Lloyd Hydinger, pianist, and Miss Florence Flynn, contralto, appeared on the first of the faculty series of concerts. The pro- gram was varied from the erlier to the modern composers. Both Mr. Hy- dinger and Miss Flynn showed great skill and artistic temperament in the rendition of their numbers. The most interesting of the Appreciation recitals of the year was the one given by members of the Faculty in which they presented a stringed trio with piano, D. M. Swarthout, ' cellist, Florence Brown, violinist and Mr Gallup pianist. The Leaders ' Double Trio sang for us with obligate for two violins. Miss Ruth Muir and Miss Wilna Moffett gave us a two oiano composition and Professor Olds sang several of the Negro Spmtuels. There have been several student recitals during the year, in each of which the students have done extremely good work. On April 15, the Girls ' Glee Club gave their annual home concert in the Millikin auditorium. The main feature of the concert was Undine, a tone poem by Harriet Ware in which Eloise Lutz and Harold Lucas took the solo parts. It was the most successful concert in every respect that the girls have ever given. 126 Students Recitals The Men ' s Glee Club has made several out-of-town trips this year, all of which have been very successful. They appeared on their home concert April 24 in the Millikin Auditorium. Their main feature was Lochinvar which corresponds to the Undine given by the girls. The men did excep- tionally good work on their home concert. The first Senior Recital of the year was the pipe organ recital given by Miss Wilna Moffett, December 17, 1918, assisted by the Ladies ' Double Trio consisting of Misses Helen Grossman, Eloise Lutz, Doris Gillespie, Jessie Johnston, Frederieka Green, and Myrtle Schroeder, with double violin obligata by Mr. M. L. Swarthout and Miss Florence Brown, with Mr. D. M. Swarthout at the piano. The program consisted of numbers from Bach, Guilmant, Schumann. Stebbins, Hollins, and Stoughton. Miss Moffett ' s playing showed a splendid technique and sense of interpretation of the compositions which she rendered. On April 7, Miss Ruth Brown gave her Senior Piano Recital in Kaeuper Hall. She was assisted by Lyle Downey, ' cellist. Miss Brown gave a varied program representing many of the different schools of music. The opening number, which was the first movement from the Appasionata Sonata by Beethoven represented the old German school, a Cyril Scott number represented the modern English school, a number from Grandos, the Spanish school, two Debussy numbers and a Widor number the French, and the Grieg Concerto in a minor, the Norwegian school of composers. Throughout the entire program Miss Brown showed a splendid technique and interpretation, and fell little short of the artistic in her rendition of the numbers. 127 College Sings While the S. A. T. C. was in camp here at Millikin, a movement was started in the college which we hope will prove to be one of Millikin ' s tra- ditions — I speak of the all Millikin sings under the direction of Mr. D. M. Swarthout, who has made a study of the directing of mass singing and who by his own personality just " makes you sing " whether you want to or can. Th e S. A. T. C. sings proved such a great success that the Student Council took steps to continue the college sings after the S. A. T. C. unit had been disbanded. Now once every two weeks, we assemble in the chapel for a sing. These sings are varied in their types, some folk songs such as Swanee River, Love ' s Old Sweet Song, some hymns such asAbide With Me, and some of the more peppy popular songs like ' Liza Jane and Ain ' t Got Weary Yet, and just all kinds of songs that appeal to college students, of course, not forgetting our own college songs. We hope that in the future the tradition established while the S. A. T. C. was here will grow, and that Millikin will be known to the outside world for her campus and chapel sings. 128 129 Senior Plau The Senior Play which was given April 12, 1918, was " Keeping Up with Elaine, " a clever comedy. The cast was as follows: Mrs. Kirkland, a New York society woman Fern Kaufman Mrs. J. Simmons, Mrs. Kirkland ' s sister Grace Boyd Mary Anne Simmons, Mrs. Kirkland ' s niece Marguerite Shafer Betsy Scroggins, Mrs. Simmons ' hired help Armmda J° nes Sarah Applegate Slepsy, Farmdale dressmaker and gossip Elsie Miller Elaine Jewett, a society girl Helen Waddel Trella Jewett, Elaine ' s invalid sister Margaret Lloyd Patty Cloverleaf, a society girl Lucie MacWherter William Barkeley, a Yale man Corwm Querrey Clarence Mason 1 nf ,,.,,.,,,„ vV »- ■- L ?7® 11 1,1 ' TpHHv Pflnram lOlbaikleys Russell McDonald Teddy iarnum f fraternity Clarence Cox- Lloyd Henderson Vkuc " lc All of the parts were well filled. Marguerite Shafer, as Mary Anne, made a de- lightfully sweet and innocent little country girl. Arminda Jones, as Betsy Scroggins, kept everyone laughing. The audience enjoyed especially Elsie Miller ' s characteriza- tion of the sharp, pert little dressmaker. Altogether the little four-act comedy was well done, and reflected credit on Pro- fessor Warner, the coach. 130 C Tvr mnmmn Daughters of Men John Stedman Eber Spence James Thedford Wm.

He played in hard luck with a bad ankle, but he showed his stuff by sticking it out. YOUNG Ranny played his end position as he does everything else, always there with the goods. His " passing ability " and the ease with which he covered a kick, or took a forward pass, helped not a little in tight places. We can rejoice that he will still be with us next year. GRAHAM Graham, captain-elect, played the posi- tion of right tackle, in the same style as his previous year, smashing all interfer- ence, and nailing his man back of the line. His defensive work saved many a score, and his " wagon-road " holes af- forded many a touchdown. 162 LONG Harry filled a right half position, cred- itably to himself and to J. M. U. He could always seem to find a hole, and always as easily to block one up. GILL This is Gilly ' s first year as a regular on the varsity but his height helped him grab many a pass at right end. " Tues- day " will be a great help next year with his experience. GRIMMETT With his weight " Fatty " held down right guard and though this is his first year at the position, he formed an ef- fective part in blocking all line smashes thru the center hole. GRACE Grace played " full " with speed and en- durance, and was a never failing terror to opposing backs in his line plunging and low tackling. 163 BECKER Becker was a fast man at the half pos- ition on the left side. He was always there in breaking up passes and few men ever knew what it felt like to get by him without hitting the ground. WISE " Doc " was the pivot man and held to it like a rock. Always dependable for a sure pass in the tight places and never failing in breaking up punts. His weight made him a center ever to be reckoned with, as he played the game of dropping back and getting his men on line drives. Mckenzie " Mac " held down left tackle and did it with credit. His long arms and never failing grin helped the team over many rough places. He was a hard fighter, and always in the game. HAMILTON " Ham " was another terror at full. He seemed always to pick his hole at just the right spot, and nary a man got by him without at least a partial spill. 164 MAYES Although Mayes was not a regular man, his work at guard is worthy of no- tice, and his teamwork is of Millikin cal- ibre. CRUM J. B. was out of the game most of the season with an injury, but his heady work at quarter and a strong punting leg put yards between the ball and our own goal. STEVENS Stevens played a hard, steady game at guard, and despite an injured back which hampered him during a greater part of the season, he is varsity material. BAILEY Bailey was one of the fastest men on the team and when he went into the game, something was sure to happen. Ho fought hard from the first blast of the whistle. 165 166 Haas, Genre, Gill, Robinson, Bennett, Bailey, Young, Gepford, Brannon BASKETBALL SCORES MiHikin 17; Millikin 32; Millikin 14; Millikin 45; Millikin 32; Millikin 27; Millikin 18; Millikin 21; Millikin 7; Millikin 21; Millikin 18; Millikin 30; University of Illinois 37 Wesleyan 18 Great Lakes - 28 Charleston 19 McKendree 14 Normal 24 Bradley 8 Eureka — - 17 Bradley 14 Charleston — 11 Normal 12 Wesleyan - 11 TOURNAMENT SCORES Millikin 30; Wesleyan 24 Millikin 21; Normal : - 21 Millikin 18; Lombard - 18 Millikin 15; Wesleyan 17 BASKETBALL IN OTHER YEARS Won Lost 1911 13 3 1912 6 4 1913 8 2 1914 8 1 1915 6 4 1916 10 2 1917 13 2 1918 10 9 Total 74 27 167 Basket Ball GEPFQRD Ex-Captain Gepford, an all-conference forward, with his speed, and red hair, grin, and three years in a blue and white jersey, always has his long shots timed for the zero hour. YOUNG Captain Young, better known as Ranny, captain of the second all-conference team, fills his forward position at basketball as he does his end at football, and the mound at baseball, with that ease and confidence that comes only to an natural athlete. GILL Our all-conference center, a Decatur High product, and it is whispered that the coaches of the " Little Nineteen " say that a better basketball center was never known in this conference. GENRE Genre, from Greenville, a man with a berth on the second all-conference team, and a reputation for taking the ball off of the bank-board, is largely responsible for the low scoring of our opponents. 168 to MilllieTfc mTBnetegi Qncfc v - Basket Ball BAILEY We have the word of the Coach that Bailey ' s eye for the basket was about the best on the team. We all saw his scrappy fighting and guarding ability. ROBINSON Don, a speedy forward, with a shooting eye, superior to that of Robin Hood ' s, and always playing the game as few men do, was steady, alert, and dependable. HAAS _ Haas, a hard scrapper, and always on the ball, has for two years, been a hard trainer and always out for practice. In his two remaining years we expect to hear much from him. BENNETT Bennett, a scrappy guard, comes to us from Argenta, and although this is his first year, he certainly looks good, and next year we hope to see him one of the first five. 169 Wann, Coach; Young-, Querrey, Harvey, Ward, H.

He was a con- sistent back-stop, and a heady man for the position. From behind his mask and big mitt, he had a good view of the field situation at all times. YOUNG (Captain-Elect) Ranny came out from Decatur with an enviable reputation as a pitcher, and on the mound for J. M. U. he kept up his good work. Few hitters in the Little Nineteen conference, managed to connect with his curves very often. He is a hitting pitcher, too, and helped win more than one game with the bat. He has three seasons before him as a Mil- likin pitcher. GILL It ' s a long way from " Hank " down to the ground, but when a hot grounder came through he got down to it in a hurry. Catching fool-hardy base run- ners off of second base was Gilly ' s spe- cialty. Three more seasons he will be with us. CROSS Carl, along with Teddy Roosevelt, was there with the big stick. He was one of the heaviest hitters on the team, and could nearly always be relied upon for a long outfield fly, or a sizzler through the in-held just when it was needed. Be- sides, if an opposing batsman sent a ball within a mile or so of his outfield territory, it never failed to stick in his glove. 172 ROBERTS Earl was a cocky freshman when he came out on the baseball field, and an- nounced his intention of getting an M out of it. (He still holds to that good intention). He found a berth on the regular team, and proceeded to make his playing felt in all the games. With three more seasons to play, he will be a valuable man on the Millikin diamond. SAALWAECHTER Salty ' s grand finale in Millikin ath- letics was this baseball season. He had a lot of fun climbing fences to spear outfield liners, lying flat on his back to catch the high ones coming down, and in jarring brand new baseballs out of a year ' s growth with his bat. Salty got his practice by batting clods with to- bacco sticks in a Kentucky tobacco patch. SLEETER When there was need of a catcher, shortstop, outfielder or anything else, Curt was the boy for the job. But usually he hung around first base reg- istering put out after put out, and leav- ing errors to anyone else that wanted to make them. He didn ' t like to make errors himself, so he grabbed every ball that came near him. At the bat he was one of the surest hitters on the team. LONG Harry continued to uphold the athletic record of the Long family by his consist- ent playing on the baseball team this season. As a third sacker he is good and reliable, and as a heavy hitting out- fielder he would have little trouble secur- ing a berth on any Little 19 team. 173 We MM T emus Our tennis reputation this year was of Lowell Gill and Russell McDonald, truly men were seniors, and were out to do their contests. Their utmost was very acceptable. upheld and added to by the playing the long and short of it. Both of these utmost for Millikin in their last athletic Doubles Millikin vs. Wesleyan Doubles Millikin vs. Illinois College. Doubles Millikin vs. Bradley Singles McDonald, Millikin vs. Cook RESULTS IN THE TOURNAMENT Millikin winner Millikin winner Millikin winner, championship Charleston Cook, winner Golf After Muhl of Wesleyan had defeated Martin of Bradley at golf " Prof " Risley hand- ed Muhl the short end of the game, and brought home another trophy for Millikin. In the student golf contests, Lee Mundell of Millikin was defeated by Bradley. The tourna- ment was held at Peoria. 174 Coach Wann, Lueth, Wise, Rotz, Gill, Edwards, Sanders, Meyers Irack and Field The meet with Wabash College was the only dual meet which Millikin entered this season. This was lost, Wabash scoring 84 points to Minikin ' s 44. Wabash had, as always, an exceptionally strong track team. At the state meet, however, the Millikin boys displayed their real worth by taking second place in the race for the conference championship. The championship was won by Illinois College, with J. M. U. not far behind. At this meet a Millikin man, Joe Moore, hung up a new conference record in the 440-yard dash, doing the distance in 52V2 seconds. 175 Track LEUTH Bio Leuth was another miler and a fast man at it. He was a freshman when he went out for the team, and from the very beginning he showed real Milhkm grit and stick-to-it-iveness. EDWARDS (Captain-Eleet) " Edderds " delights in nothing more than showing a whole track full of sprinters iust how his track shoes are made. On all of the dashes, and the hurdles he was an opponent to be reckoned with in any meet. Besides, he was a member of the relay team, and not many times did an opposing team gam on his part of the comse. BRENNER In this Brenner ' s first try at a Millikin athletic team, he proved to be as con- scientious a woiker as there was on the team. He was a running partner with Rotz m the distances. 17G Track SANDERS Jesse was in his element when in a track and field meet. His favorite pastime was hurling a javelin, and by the theory of " practice makes perfect " he approached perfection as a limit. He was always a hard worker. MOORE (Captain) Joe ended the season in a blaze of glory by setting a new record in the 440 for the Little Nineteen. He covered the distance in 52 1-5 seconds, setting the conference a mark to aim at. ROTZ " Cocky " Rotz was one of the hardest workers on the Millikin track, and his work brought him and brought Millikin real results. On the 880 and on the mile run he was there with the goods. 177 178 It Mil Ruth Davidson, Mariorie Sanborn.

Second: The discouragement of intercollegiate Athletics in the sense that a team goes from one school to another to play, (with the exception of tennis and archery) ; but the encouragement of comparison of records by mail. Third: The use of Spalding ' s rules. Fourth: A scholastic eligibility requirement for all girls taking part in official contests. Fifth: A good sportsmanship eligibility requirement for all girls taking part in official contests. 179 1 enms The tournament played between colleges of the LITTLE NINETEEN was held at Milhkin May 10 and 11, 1918. Because of rain, it was necessary to play m the Millikin gymnasium. There was a high degree of interest shown m the results, and the final outcome was extremely doubtful until the last set. The Knox team was con- ceded at the outset to be one of the most formidable. MrlHkm was well represented by Mary Esther Parkinson, Lucie MacWherter, and R " th Davidson It is believed that tennis for women is now firmly established in the LITTLE NINETEEN.

Villian At Large An attempt was made on the lives of the fair inmates of Aston Hall last Saturday after- noon by Lena Belle Holland, who turned on the faucets in the laundry and left the water running. The fell deed was, however, discovered in time by one of our heroic and noble companions, who swam valiant- ly into the flooded laundry, turned off the water and swam out again, barely escaping with her life. Our fair rescuer has not yet received the V. C. al- though she is hourly expecting it. The villain is still at large. Borrowing Will some one please remind the Dean that in advising the girls not to borrow clothing, she forgot to mention it isn ' t cus- tomary to borrow frat pins. Contributors Column Preface. Ralph ' s and Clara ' s mother sends their laundry to- gether and Clara gives it to Ralph on his not infrequent vis- its to the Hall. Clara and Elsie are room-mates. Plot. One afternoon, Elsie re- turned home to find various art- icles of men ' s wearing apparel from socks to collars, gaily be- strewing the room. Conclusion. Elsie was horri- fied, and her neighbors were scandilized. Note. This contribution real ly belongs in the Scandal-mong- ers Corner, you know, but out of regard for the victom ' s feel tags we put it here. Mornin ' s Mornin ' Hurrah!

A Chat With You Setting aside the inspiration- al and educational qualities of the Bumbelbee, can you think of anvthing that gives you the same value as The Bumblebee? The Bumbelbee is big enough to hold within its covers the news of Aston Hall for a period of three weeks (and Bee-lieve muh, that ' s going some!) All you need is a suitable frame of mind and a comfortable stand- ing position. Who Wrote This? Uncle Simon he Clumb up a tree To see What he could see When presentlee Uncle Jim Clumb up beside him And squatted down by he. Elsie Smith absent-mindedly started off to the show without her man, the other night, it was only when her attention was gently called to this fact by interested onlookers on the front porch, that she dashed frantically back into the house, to reappear soon afterward with Ralph and Little Sister. Grandson Albert spent a pleasant Friday evening at As- ton Hall some time ago when the Dean and the teachers were away at the Empress. He was so popular that he had to split most of his dances. Dean — Bernice, why did you throw that egg out of the win- dow? Bernice — I didn ' t know it would break, Mrs. Walker. Once When we Were very young We heard A good one About a young man Named Horatious Which Our Mothers Wouldn ' t allow Us To remember. But now that we Have obtained years Of discretion We wish Some one Would come To the rescue.

He maketh me to get up at 6 o ' clock in the morning and leadeth me out to formation. He telleth me nothing, but marcheth me to the infirmary for no reason at all, I am not sick. Yea, tho I drill like a demon, it doesn ' t suit ; for he is against me, his voice and his looks they bother me. He calleth me down at formation in the presence of the Lieutenant. He taketh my name ; my remorse is great. Surely the Sergeant shall not follow me all the days of my life or I shall dwell in the depths of the guardhouse forever. V.

March 18, we were suddenly awakened by a cry from one of our men, who had arisen early, that the house had been robbed! We thought of course that he was joking, but upon making an inspection of our rooms we were forced to agree with him. Some one had surely ransacked the house! Everything was disarranged, the dresser drawers were open, clothes were thrown about the floor, watches, money, and all other valuables were missing. Some exciting time, to say the least ; enough uproar for a dog fight, and at each moment some kind hearted victim would join anew in cursing the burglar as he discovered another of his sacred possessions missing. But finally the mystery was solved. The gruff policeman whom we called by phone for assistance solemnly informed us that the said robbers had called him up about an hour before and told him that the whole thing was a joke and that the stuff would all be re- turned. He also added, mentioning the names of the two crooks, that if the stuff was not returned to notify him and he would see that we got it all right. We thanked him kindly, adding that we were very well acquainted with the thieves and could handle them ourselves. Then fol- lowed two of the most grand and glorious " tubbings " that ever took place within the bounds of a fraternity house. Our valuables were promptly returned ; the crooks were promptly reformed, but to make sure that they were thoroughly converted, we " baptized " each of them six times for good measure. We all agree that it was a good joke, but just for safety we now keep our pocket-books and watches under our pillows. 206 Telephone Main 364 SAMS 114 Merchant St. Decatur, III.

We have a department which specializes in making halftones, color plates, zinc etchings, art work and designs for college and school publications. We use the famous Levy Acid Blast process, which produces halftones that print far better than plates made in the ordinary way, and which greatly aids the printer in making an artistic success of his work. In order to cooperate with out customers more closely, we have prepared a valuable book, " Engraving for College and School Publications, " which we loan to the staff of every publication which uses Stafford Engravings. This book contains 164 pages and over 300 illustrations, and will be of great assistance in simplifying ordering, in preventing costly mistakes and in securing highest quality engraving at lowest cost. This helpful book is not sold — simply loaned to Stafford customers. We also specialize in Commencement Invitations; Fraternity, Sorority and Club Stationery; Visiting Cards, and other Copper Plate Engraving and Steel Die Embossing. Samples with Prices on Request.
