It lias been filled with honor, with glory, with endeavor, and with disappointment. And now those who this year have completed their four years of college in their turn set forth into the world to bring greater glory to Millikin and to live forever in her spirit. It is for these Seniors, the class of 1922, in order that they may have a permanent record of the college year, that we who have labored over this volume, aim to characterize as far as possible, the life of Millikin as it really is, and to indicate the progress of our University. Also we wish, in compiling this record, to reproduce the environment in which Millikin men are living so that you. alumni, may recall your col- lege days, so that you, instructors, may enjoy again the year you have lived with us. so that you, undergraduates, may catch the spirit that will hold you forever to your college. Thus we greet you and hope that you all, alumni, class of 1922. faculty, fellow- students, may catch that spirit that will draw us ever nearer and nearer to a greater Millikin. Thus is the 1923 Millidek open to you! Hii{ MILL1DEK ato lean Haiti To him whose sincerity, whose justice, whose modesty, whose perfect under- standing of our needs, our aims, our pleasures, make him the best loved man at Millikin, do we dedicate this book.

ADMINISTRATION Au mints tratfon ADMINISTRATION And the Wheels Go Round All feminine protests to the contrary, woman ' s conception of an automobile i- a seat, four whizzing wheel , and a contrivance to steer by. The latter is not especially necessary, for passing automobiles can take to the sidewalk, and the pedestrian- to the tree-. Silently functioning carburetors and timer-, like submerged husbands, are things to be ignored, not appreciated. Our conception of Millikin easily becomes that of a huge educational ma- chine of buildings and equipment, silent in its swift conduct of us through a maze of human and scholastic problems. There i- no noisy exhaust or whin- ing whir to indicate that somewhere an engine or a dynamo is producing the necessary vital energy. But back of all that is tangibly .Millikin. is a sustaining power generated by a small group of men and women whose importance is hidden by the very silence and unvarying effectiveness of their working spirit. The Hoard of Trustee- perpetuate in trust the generosity which Mr. Mil- likin displayed toward Millikin, and by their giving, stimulate the community in its gifts toward Millikin ' s endowment. The Board of Managers gives in per- sonal interest the stability and soundness of business experience toward the management of Millikin ' s business affairs. President Holden, removed by necessity and not by choice from an intimacy with individual student-, i- devoted and strenuous in his effort- to secure the endowment which will make possible the vision of a new destiny for Millikin. A general financial depression has not blocked him. For one has only to watch our President and his Overland turn a corner to realize that spinning around an obstacle, and shooting in a straight line, is all one with him. Rising above the mere execution of innumerable details. Dean aid re- tains a freshness of personality and a sincerity of expression that transforms mere respect into affection. Dean Walker is in no sense the Police Matron of Aston Hall, but shares her personality with many a student friend. And in every department, in every class, arc found leaders who inject into an atmosphere already heavily charged with the scholastic ideal, the elusive but ever present spirit of service and dedication toward a distinctly Millikin Ideal. In the face of a lowered appropriation and a decreased working force. those men who care for our buildings and grounds have silently cooperated to the end that comfort and convenience i- afforded the student, and attractiveness meets the stranger who judges Millikin ' - buildings and corridors. And we appreciate the men and women who make the wheel- of Millikin gi I ' round. (II ARLES M ILLS. Eighteen ADMINISTRATION The Boards of Control The Board of Trustees of the University Y.

" Ask Dean Wald. " It is a phrase that every Millikinite has adopted and says with all confidence and trust, that he is ready to carry out the advice or direction of the answer. fin- Dean Wald knows. As Dean. Arthur Wald has created an atmosphere ot co-operative and cordial relationship between students and fac- ulty, lie ' s not the sort of man to extend a friendly slap on the hack to all comers, hut he is unfailingly so reasonable, so modest and yet so appreciative, so square in all his dealings with students that he is loved by all of them. Dean Walker as guardian of all that is line and cultural of the University occupies a special place in the regard of the student body. And as a guardian she tries to influence all to gain perfection in those things which make charm of personality. She writes: " In our eagerness to acquire knowledge and to attain high scholarship, we so often neglect our opportunities to gain poise, dignity, courtesy, and the little niceties of life. Since a man is the builder of his own character, he may execute at his own will those qualities which endow him with personal attractiveness. I le may cultivate in his nature those principles which make for truth, loyalty, sincerity, ex- pressing in his atitude toward his fellows those liner instincts which make him pleasing to his friends. We must distinguish between the fad- of the day and the real character which gives to one the true courtesy which charac- terizes his true worth and never goes out of fashion. We maintain that good manners en- hance our personal happiness, and he cultivat- ing those inherent traits which go to make up a well bred person, it is possible to break up cliques and caste, thus creating a band of sym- pathy with all mankind. " And yet. when she can remind us of courtesy, of manners and all other things that are cultural we m ust not forget Mis. Walker ' s own personality — her delight in teasing and being teased, " kidded. " the fact that she can enjoy a practical joke, and most of all, her little kindnesses to others and her appreciation of favors and of kindness. DEAN WALKER rut-Ill;. I hi ADMINISTRATION DR.

In such a mood, it occurred to me the other day. that, though I hope to grad- uate in the class of Nineteen Hundred Twenty-two, there is no definite bond which hinds me, as an individual, and the class, as a unit, together. We wear caps and gowns each Wednesday and daily raise our voices in " praising God, from whom all blessings flow " ; we eat chicken salad and pineapple ice at the annual party on Washington ' s birthday, but with these exceptions, we are no more closely associated than with some four bundled others of the student body. Our lathers and grandfathers, (those of whom were fortunate enough to enjoy the privileges of college days) speak affectionately, almost reverently of the class of ' 67 or ' 85. We enjoy our friendships with individuals, hut to them, THEIR class stands out as a distinctive unit in their college memories. What has caused this subtle change in class attitude? Ts it that we are less loyal than our fathers, or more indifferent " Perhaps it is only that it has been crowded out? In looking about our own college, we find in every class, students from each of our schools of Commerce and Finance. Liberal Arts and Household Arts, and from these different departments are assembled a heterogeneous col- lection of Freshmen, Juniors. Seniors and Sophomores, who. because so many of their subjects are elective, do not develop that class spirit which marked the older day college, when Johnnie and Jamie and Willie each took Chemistry and Mathe his Freshman year because he was a Freshman and must. You may say we have a more democratic attitude now; that there is more tolerance between the classes; hazing has become obsolete, and the classes meet on a common ground of understanding. Granted. But couldn ' t we have just a little more of that tine- old sentiment concerning one ' s own class — the kind which hearkens hack, points to pride to a certain man and answers: Know him? Well, rather! He graduated in ' 22. " Mary Delahunty. 1 ' hirty-Four CLASSES enior CI ass Officers President Cecil F. Abr vms Vice-President 1 1 1- 1 i.

" Act 1 — " Take Me to That Land of Jazz " Several shadows grouped around the room, some slouched down in chairs. others sprawled aimlessly over two davenports. All rather dull and listless looking. First Voice (from depths of a wad of pillows i — " Aw, come on, won ' t you play us something ' " Second I ' nice — " Well, since its you. What d ' ya want? " First Voice — " Oh, most any old thing. " ' The second voice assumes a shape and its owner slowly takes herself over to a mahogany piano in one corner of the room. She looks through the pieces of would-be music strung around over the piano, sj hs deeply, wrinkles her forehead a minute, then touches her fingers softly to the keys. Beautiful strains of Beethoven ' s Moonlight Sonata lill the dimly lighted room. There is a short subdued silence, then — Chorus — " Aw, not that sob stuff; give us something with a little life in it. " ( Ibediently, hut with a resigned look on her face, and a yearning in her eyes, the player fumbles over the pieces, finally selecting a vivid, red-covered one en- titled, " Wash Day Blues " . As she clashes into it. rasping sounds clatter their way out of the piano, tumbling and humming wildly into one another in their haste. The indefinite shadows suddenly take shape, pair off and jump around the room, resembling at each jerk just so many puppets hopping at each pull of their strings. The noise suddenly ceases only to be called hack again by clapping of hands and loud stamping of feet. Thus, the confusion starts once more, the shapes jerk on their way, and the scene repeats itself ad infinitum. Act If Another dimly lighted room, with an evening breeze drifting lazily in the colored windows. A low buzz of conversation from the rows of people eagerly awaiting the virtuoso. Suddenly, the artist appear-, hows deeply and walks over to the piano. A breathless hush, then the rich tones of Beethoven ' s Moon- light Sonata sing out at the master ' s touch. The player continues, and as the plaintive notes steal out over the audience, there seems almost a sighing in the air. The movement changes, now becoming more anil more rapid, and then the music dies slowly and fades away with the few final chords. The audience re- mains under the charm, and the artist changing with each mood, plays now a rip- pling Spring Song, now the exquisite Hark! Hark ' The Lark!, next a gay Chopin Wall::, the tuneful (. " Prelude, a colorful modern Fantasy and ends with a heavy Hungarian Rhapsody. The air is vibrant with electricity, the audience swayed with various emotions, and as the master ends with a final crashing chord, there is thunderous applause and he is called hack again and again. Thus he. too, plays on. carrying his hearers with him. filling men ' s hearts with peace and happiness. ;|e j 1p 3|e c % fellow students — which do you choose? Maurita Shafer.

The New York Philharmonic Orchestra directed by Josef Stransky and Henry Hadley gave an enjoyable program on the 25th. On the 2nth the Decatur Oratorio Choir of three hundred and fifty voices, directed by Donald M. Swarthout and accompanied by the St. Louis Symphony )rchestra, gave The Messiah by Handel. The soloists were Ethel Benedict, Soprano; Jane McConnell, Contralto; Arthur Kraft. Tenor; and Burton Thatcher, Baritone. This year the Decatur Chorus under the directur uf .Mr. Donald M. Swarthout and accompanied by the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra gave Hadley ' s Nezv Earth, and Coolridge-Tavlor ' s .1 Talc of Old Japan.

" It so chanced that our erstwhile high school stripling matriculated at .Millikin. As the weeks progressed new and unthought of revelations unfolded themselves. The youth made astounding discoveries. Within the ivy mantled walls were laboratories. In this room were tried experiments in the held of chemical science, in that one were put to test the apparatus dealing with electricity and wireless. But besides these more material laboratories, the Freshman soon determined that an altogether different, more intangible kind existed, a laboratory not listed in the conventional catalogue, nor one which had been fashioned by carpenter ' s hands, but one which the Student had built for himself. We might term it the laboratory of self expression, of initiative, of sociability. It was a laboratory which tended to beget capacity for organization and leadership. Mere, the Fresh- man learned, he could choose for himself according to his own gifts, taste-, or inclinations. If his marvelous rotund voice were appreciated by his auditors at the " try-out, " he could attix his name to the list of Glee Club members. If he exhibited a propensity for fluent writing, he might, by good fortune, be enlisted as a re] orter on the Decaturian Staff. If bis Thespian talents were elicited, there was a possibility of his " treading the boards " as a supernumerary. And so it was that life for this one-time hobbledehoy, but now matured youth, beca me one huge conflict, what with the competition engendered by the " try-outs " for the hosts of clubs and activities. lie was all agog with the unut- terable thrill of testing bis strength with that of his confreres, of vying for honors in this field anil that. The Freshman was swept apace into the excitement of it all. And with all there was the romance! The fascination of friendship formed, not only within the Greek letter fraternities, but as an outcome of the continence made possible by the many clubs! These old associations, the youth would learn later, would be more enduring than the knowledge culled from pond- erous texts. For his capacity for learning would be amplified in proportion as it was commensurate with his contact with life. In the tall of his second year the student experienced the unspeakable joy of coming back to old associates. By this time he bad discerned the true meaning of " college life, " as exemplified by the clubs and organizations. He knew that self expression and initiative were part and parcel of a smoothly rounded college education. But he was possessed also of the sagacity of choosing not too widely, but well. He was judicious in determining " what he would go out for. " For he had been told of the fiascoes of those students who had encumbered themselves by " going out " for everything. This aspiring youth, with all bis dreams for the future, picked with discretion, thus adjusting his course harmoniously. hie thing surely the youth would have told you, were he to have given full expression to his thoughts, and that is: that one should take account of his responsibilities to bis college. That instead of deriving pleasure from the mere material comforts of living for one ' s club alone, or for one ' s self, one should seek- to do something for the institution, to reciprocate, to endeavor to give some remuneration in return for the wealth untold with which the college enriches him. In that way would one quaff more deeply of the so called " cup of life. " I If.I.KN ( rORHAM, Eighty-Six ORGANIZATIONS Kappa Society I hi- year marks a slight change in the Kappa policy of election of new members. The policy heretofore practiced, of awarding silver keys to those whose average equalled the minimum of (; _ ' prescribed for high honors for the first three years, will be discontinued. This is in line with tin- new Faculty rul- ing, which provides that the Faculty shall award high honors at commencement instead nf leaving the selection to the arbitrary minimum. Members of the grad- uating class, therefore, who attain High Honor become candidates for Kappa. Another depature by Kappa is the inauguration of Scholarship Day which was observed in May. » 1 1 this occasion. President McConnaughey, Knox Col- lege, was invited by Kappa to deliver the scholarship address. Special mention was made of those who hail won preliminary honors.

As soon as was feasible, a canvas was made of the studenl body by the committee in charge of the plan tn see just how man ' students really wanted tci earn money. A card index was compiled by the manager for each girl interested, stat- ing what hours of the day she was free, and the different types of work w Inch she could do. JU ± ri The next problem was to get the plan be- fcc M Hj tore the citv, and this was taken care of by a clever editorial in one of the local papers. Calls came in daily for help of various kinds, and the Student Service Bureau was a working organization. las supplied work of all types; some of the girls did other work on free days or half-days; one girl earned thirty-five dollars selling engraved Christmas cards; another sold stationery and earned a similar amount, for girls who like to cook and are majoring in Domestic Science, it has found homes in which the girls could prepare dinner regularly (one girl made thirty dollars in six weeks in this way) or afternoon parties at which they could serve. But perhaps the most congenial and easiest type of work that the girls found was keeping children in the evenings while preparing school work for the next day ' s classes. Xext year the Student Service Bureau is planning a more active campaign. During the summer, .Miss helix will keep in touch with the University office and cooperate with the officials there in finding homes in which girls may earn their board ami room by doing just such work and having just such interests as she would have were she in her own home.

We walked n walked all around Fairview Park, slid down the slides, talked to the wooly bears, ' n ate n ate of wieners, buns n water- melon, huge slices of juicy watermelon that got all over our faces. It ' s a good way to find out who the best sportsmen are. and the best part of all. is that i believe all the new girls are good sports. Well, Diary, just two more days until the N i . M. and Y.

After the grand march the judges presented Katherine .Monroe, dressed as a quaint little old fashioned maiden, the prize for the best looking costume. Two tiny bat- flitted about the crowd, and who do you suppose they were? Nobody else than two august members of our faculty, Lelah Belle Davis and Caroline Lutz. They won a prize for the cleverest group costume. The frats furnished the entertainment and we bad everything from a faculty album to the love story of a fair damsel on a desert. Yes, that was the Sig Alph stunt, which with all their ladies in their gauzy costumes, took the prize. After the program was over we bad food, of course, doughnuts, coffee, and apples.

The weather man was not too kind, but what ' s the weather- man to do if he has Millikin folks plotting against him? Friday night, Millikin ' - sixth animal " Homecoming " started off perfectly. The big event of the evening was " A Pair of Jewels " , which was preceeded by a lovely reception. The corridors were lined with tall candlebrae whose out- stretched arms bore lighted candles. An orchestra played soft music gayly he- hind palms, because everyone was delighted to be hack to greet his old friends and profs. The chapel was " packed " for " A Pair of Jewels " and from the time the curtain went up upon the God and his kneeling priests to the ensemble at the end. the audience was in a constant uproar. But how could they keep from being amused by the college people of 1972 " That ' s the catch, they couldn ' t. Sammy as Boobo, the fool, was an attentive servant to the Princess Pat- rine.

Be- tween acts clever cats served the daintest of sandwiches plucked from the sand- wich trees, while flimsy parachutes of gay colors hearing candies, floated lazily down to the guests. Yesterday morning we had a special chapel, with our hind appearing in their new uniforms. And.

Diary, Ini sure I ' ve just had a part in one of the biggest enterprises oi Millikin — the V. V. Y. M. Circus.

The corridors were the streets of a circus ground, alive with shrieking whistles, gay with colored balloons, and smelling of the straw which covered the floor.

The Seniors couldn ' t decide where to have their party, so they went from the I ' i Beta Phi house, to the Delta Sig, and stepped at the Delta Delta Delta house for refreshments. The funiors tried to " Up Town " the other classes and have none of their " roddy- isin " . so we reserved the mezzanine floor at the Lincoln Square for the evening show. At the Canton Tea Garden we had an after-the-show -lunch, just like regular city folks.

" In the afternoon .Mis. Aston had her usual lovely Washington tea. This year it was as pleasing as ever for many Marthas and Georges were around to entertain their guests. Today, Diary, we had a vacation. It ' s a good thing we had it. too. or you might not have known about all their parties, i! 1 had not bad a day of rest. February 24, 1922. Darling Diary, I went to the Pan-Hellenic Scholarship Banquet. Aren ' t you proud of me? Von never thought that 1 would have tile highest grades in my class. Even so. I have. Every year I ' ve envied from afar the represen- tatives from the sororities who gave the banquet, and even more have I envied the guests. The girls having the highest averages tor the first semester were invited to this banquet at the Yellow Lantern, with the girl in each sorority hav- ing the highest average. The girls who went are: Maurita Shafer, ( amille Barnett, Josephine Harris. Yelma Colbrook. I ' .ernice Torman, Bernice Deetz, Idelia Davis. I lories Stuzman. Doris Lowe, Helen Richardson, Edith Parker, Helen Crowder, Helen Jacobs, and Eunice Anderson. The Yellow Lantern was so pretty with its gay yellow decorations. The place cards fitted with the decorations so well for the) ' were hand painted sketches of an artist in a yellow smock. Lucile Brown, president of Pan-Hellenic, was toast-mistress and the respi inses were : The Picture. " Fbe Frame — Maurita Shafer The Canvas — Yelma Colbrook The Colors — Bernice Deetz The Artist — Doris Lowe. I ' m going again next year. Diary, for after an evening like this 1 feel as if the sacrifice of a movie or two is not too great a price to pay to keep up my scholarship. On Hundred Foi ty- MILLIDEK. M; h 17, 1922.

The story was indeed almost a tragedy for Mr. Al Umnus nearly failed to get his 1923 -Millidek. Of course, when we saw how nearly he missed getting a Mil- lidek we all signed for ours before the " 500th Chance " should be gone.

That was before the time of high salaried roache-, when the teams were trained by those loyal alumni who took time off from their various occupations to return to their Alma Mater to help add to her glory. Those days have long been gone and the modern college team is trained by a high salaried and often blaspheming coach who. in many cases, receives a higher salary than does the 1 ' resident of the same institution. College teams now form the chief advertisement and drawing card in attracting new students. As a result colleges have made and still are making an extended effort to attract athletes. In many cases financial aid has been offered to draw their attention. Many educators of national repute claim that in this way college athletics have now been put entirely on a commercial or professional basis and that the old fine -pint of rivalry has been taken out. They are waging a national tight to over- come this menace to the greatest of all national institutions — our colleges. Millikin is fortunate in not having such a system. Her athletes are on the same plane in their scholastic work as any other students. Many of them are a- conscientious as any student in the University. Millikin has never had the policy of giving financial help to any of her athletes in preference to any other of her students. They are offered the same opportunities and are governed by llu -.une rules as those who may not be so physically fortunate. As a result of this policy Millikin has ever had a college spirit that has been the envy of every college in the state. The I ' .hie and White teams have always had the light and " pep " typical of the teams in the earlier days of college sports. With another year put down in the records and 1922-23 coming on with brighter prospects than ever, all Millikin prepares to foster this spirit, and to instill it more deeply into her teams. Paul M.

Willi several old men back and a big bunch of new material, he started to shape his team into form. And as in year- past he started out with a series of victories. The season opened with Shurtleff here. They were taken into camp by a 62 tn ii score. Then DeKalb was handed a 63 to defeat at DeKalb. Next our old rivals, Knox, were defeated 7 to ) in a wonderful game at Galesburg. n the following Saturday the team invaded Augustana ' s camp for a 28 to victory. The heavy Rolla team was defeated 7 to on a muddy field. The team reached its peak in the Wabash game holding them 14 to 3. Milli- kin scored in less than two minutes of play and held them to l the last half. Then in the last two games several men were ineligible and the team was badly weakened. Our strong rivals from Illinois VVesleyan held us 7 to 7 in a rough game. Wesleyan slipped through and scored on the first play and in less than a minute. We met defeat at the hands of Lake Forest on Thanksgiving Day to the tune of 10 to 3. Although our last three games were not victories as to score, the team played a very successful season. The coaches and players proved their respective ability m producing a team that could play as it did during the most of the season. )ne I [untlred Fiftj Seven ATHLETICS Claude Berry Guard Berry played up to form again this year. He was fast and broke up lots of plays. He had a good eye for the basket and slipped up for a counter or two during each game from the center of the floor. Erwin Seago Fonvard " I ' inky " traveled a- if he was on tire, he worked hard on defense and offense, lie could break up plays, get the ball and use good team- work. We expect great things from him next year. Arthur Bacon Guard Bacon hit his stride toward the end of the season, lie was fast on the floor and covered every play in his territory, lie passed the ball fast and accurate. " Bake " should hold a permanent position next year. Neil Arrington Fonvard Arrington came in the second semester and stepped right into the swing of things. He was fast and a sure shot. He ought to go well next year. Bail Bailey, Captain Guard Bailey played true to form again this year, with the same hursts of speed, always on the hall and in every play in his end of the floor. His teamwork was wonderful, accurate and fast. We hate to lose him, as this is his last year. One Hundred Fifty-Eight ATHLETICS II ki VV alley Center Walley got several chances at center. He was fast on the floor and quick to run in and take the ball (iff the backboard. With this year ' s experience, we expect great things from him next year. Wayne Bowman Forzvard Bowman stepped into college basket-ball with a dash. IK- was an expert dribbler and could get through a good defense for a counter. He had a sharp eye for the basket. Hugh Miser . Forward " Alike " was with us again with that same tight and pep. lie was a good dribbler and had a good eye for the basket. Me was death on long -hot when once he got " hot. " lie played good teamwork and put up a good defense. Floyd Ctrl ■ orward Curl showed himself a little basket-ball wonder this year. He played a fast game, his specialty was breaking up plays, lie had a keen eye for the basket and was quick in judging plays. Eugene Wallace Center Wallace improved a great deal from last year. He put up a good game, was fast and strong on defense. His teamwork was good and he could be depended upon to make his share of the counters. One Hundred Fifty-Nine ATHLETICS Basket-ball, 1921-22 The basket-ball season this year certainly had its " ups and downs. " With a championship team to start out and with the addition of a goodly number of I [igh School stars, prospects looked good Ior another championship team, but luck seemed against us. Everything went line for awhile and the team seemed almost invincible. Then came three or four one point defeats, our team leading to the very end and then be nosed out during the last minute of play. The team ex- hibited a high class brand of basketball though. Then came the hard line of ineligibles and sickness among some members of the squad and weakened the team. Millikin put up a g 1 game against Wesleyan with a crippled team. The absence of Curl and Bowman were very noticeable. The great Millikin de- fensive machine hinged on Curl in the middle of the floor. With a ten day rest they should stage a strong comeback against Monmouth and Knox. Millikin ' s chances for the championship are small this year. The tournament has been eliminated and the championship will lie decided on a percentage basis. We hate to see the tournament go out after witnessing such an exciting tourna- ment as was held last year. With the development of new- material this year and the prospects of more, let us look forward to a better season next year. if J Ine I ! undred Sixty ATHLETICS DONALD PING i ' aptain HERMAN ii i I i I R I aptain-elect Varsity Baseball 1921 Line-up I ' ini..

He was accurate in his throws, lie suffered a sprained ankle and had to drop out. He should make good next year. One Hundred Sixty-Four ATHLETICS Baseball 1921 The baseball team this year didn ' t make much of a reputation for Millikin Athletics. The team labored under difficulties all season, having no diamond to practice on. The team received three good drubbings at the hands of Bradley, St. iators and Washington University. Then we look revenge on Blackburn, Eureka and Wesleyan. The two games with Knox were real baseball games, only losing by one score, i ur weak point at the beginning was warming up a good pitcher and then the support became ragged and a fast ball could find its way through almost anywhere. After having endured such a bad season we must look forward to an en- livenment of Millikin baseball and may we always 1 st Millikin baseball as we do the other sports and it will flourish in the same way. v „ it ■ . . ■»,-■• One Hundred Sixty-Five I ATHLETICS IRVAL Ml I ' II I i aptain-i li ct Track, 1921 |ni i ,i ii idal, Captain and Coach _ X — ' _ ?■ - 4 10 10 3 • 12 ' _■ v, 5 5 5 4 -1 .-i 8 1 5 5 3 3 5 3 5 1 _» 5 " ' i 3 5 3 3 ii 5 ii 2 n 4 ' 4 1 i) ,i 1 3 ii 1 ii . 3 II 1 ' . 1) 1 i) (1 EVENT Merle Weaver 440. 880 Paul Bailey 100, 220 Shot, Relay Joe Cogdal I ligh Jump Eugene Sollars lavelin.

In every college, in this great country of colleges, there lives, away in some forsaken cubby hole, a tiny fellow called a recorder. This little dwarf, clothed in pink sill and choked with pale bluish ruffles, sits all night in front of a great record book, with his slender quill pen in hand, writing down very conscientiously ' all the jokes and everything funny that has happened in this college during the da) But, in the daytime, dues he stay in his office? — Well. I should say not. We cannot see him, though, nor can we find his little workshop or see any sign of his great record 1 k or green quill pen. But, nevertheless, he is abroad, quiet and invisible, listening here and observing there, among some of our most august as well as our jolliest neighbors. Every bit of fun, every atom of foolishness, is religiously jutted down. M doesn ' t matter who it is — and I tell yon — you ' d be surprised. But the other night, by some hook or crook, we found a little pink light burn- ing away over in the corner of a class room, and. after making several trips to the biology laboratories for mic roscopes of great enough power, we finally dis- covered this little fellow hard at work, hi the walls surrounding his tiny glass table hunt;- pictures of the greatest apostles of his work ' , the " artis plus bons " in his art of fun. for here we see a photograph of Douglas Fairbanks and just across from him. Charlie Chaplin. In the corner -its a tiny piano and on it i- the music to the Burlesque Caprice and the March Grotesque. Sealed on the paper piano stool was another dwarf such as the one before the little desk, another little re- corder, lie was dressed m green satin from head to foot and spoke in a shrill pipy voice: " Well, I la, " he said. " I am afraid I ' ll wish that I was hack at the University before many days. For ten years I have recorded all the fun of the Great State ( ollege, and I was busy and happy; but now that you are leaving your work at Millikin and I must take your place here in a Christian College, controlled by a church, I ' m afraid I will have nothing whatever to do. Even now I foresee a dull, sober, existence, with not enough jokes and jollity to record to keep my arm from growing too stiff to write it. " " Go on. I law. only let me alone now; and remember. I can stay only a few days to help you get started with the records ami then I must go on to my new a] i] ii lintment. " So. we crept noiselessly awav from the little office and told not a soul what was happening. But the next evening we returned and. brushing the dust from the lens of Comb ' s prize microscope, reestablished our observatory. Ma was sit- ting at the desk, frowning and wondering over the reports oi the day, when in piped I law. all breathless anil smiling. " Well, old top, " he says, " pack up voiir baggage and cart it along to your next station. I thought this place was dull, with no jollity, and never a joke to record; hut to-day 1 -aw Mr. Dyer and — well — I changed my mind. Moreover, I tell you there are more things that are downright funny going on about this institution than I had ever dreamed. For instance, doesn ' t it tickle you to see the Freshmen up in them I. ah sitting cross-legged mi their little work stools busy I indred On SATIRE talking to each other about how much they have to do; or again to see the post- man leave a whole pile of perfumed letters in little blue edged envelopes sealed with gold-wax crests upon the conservatory office desk, — and then to see the maiden and bachelor members of the faculty creep quietly downstairs, fondle one. or two of these precious " billets doux " and hasten away to their studio; and don ' t you laugh to see the bluffs, the indescribable bluffs that are pulled — sometimes rather unsuccessfully — in class; and I tell yon I think it is probably well that the office has a sign " Business " over its door, for I spent several hours in there, and left with aching sides from laughing at some of the veritable cases on that dignified force. But give me a pen, I la. I must write fast; for coming down the hall 1 met Sammy — and now 1 have an all night ' s job. " So now in the following pages We have copied down the fun And all the foolish, silly things That 1 fa savs we have done. John Taylor.

A Banking Service for Everyone at The Citizens National Bank Decatur, Illinois % t Two Hundred Forty Five SATIRE Two II uml red Forty- Si: MILLIDEK Alma Mater Out on the pathway of Life, there is a sturd) lilac bush from which spring great clusters of lavender, fragrant bloom. An aroma (it delectable sweetness surrounds the shrub and lazy winds scatter its petals far and wide. Each day passing travellers admire the bloom and speak of it- delicate scent, but the great gnarled bush with its twisted arms and powerful heart, they pass without a thought. Clever ones have written odes to the fragrant flying blossoms, but someday a poet will find a poem, not in the Bower itself, but in its source, the power stored deep down in the heart of the shrub. Nol so far away and, quite like the lilac bush is Millikin. The college is the great twisted trunk, the fine men and women yearly graduating from its walls are the bloom, but the fountain of power, the force that makes such a Christian institution possible, is a combination of Faculty and Administration. As winds scatter the lilac blossoms and trusts threaten their buds, troubles menace our college students. But the reserve force of this union seems always ready to send up new energy and to stabilize. The faculty supplies the fund fur the opening flowers. After we have seen the lilac bush standing, magnificent, aglow with the lavender of a perfect bloom, we appreciate the strength needed for such fulfill- ment. And likewise, as we s e Millikin ' s dark gowned graduates march slowly out to meet the world, we pause to honor the Christian heart of the institution which makes such advancement possible. Then, borne softly on the wind, comes the Alma Mater ' s message, " A productive life and the result of happiness to each graduate of 1922! " Twila Miller. Two Hundred Forty Seven MILLIDEK As the Curtain Goes Down The performance is over. You have read the last joke, you have discussed the winners of the beauty contest, you have taken a last glance at your own picture (said it was pretty poor) and now we have the privilege of listening in the wings to hear the hiss or the handclap of the audience. If you have criticism to offer, the editor-in-chief and the joke editors will receive from four to six every afternoon this week. But if perchance you enjoy the book and might pos- sibly cherish it as a record of the Milllikin school year, congratulate the Staff. for to them is largely due the success of the 1923 Millidek. Co-operation! 1 presume all editors say the same under similar circum- stances but with all sincerity there never has been a staff that worked with any greater cooperation that that of 1923. The book is proof of their willing labor and to them is due the success of this Annual. But greater than ever the loyalty of the staff is the spirit that inspired them — the spirit of the University as a whole. We have broken away from many customs. Some of you approved, others didn ' t (we hope you will in time) but you all have joined in the plans anil have shown great interest in doing your part to help make the Millidek possible. I wish to thank the student body and especially Thomas Edwards and .Margaret Merritt for art work, Miss Robbins and Miss Spencer for their good judgment, Arthur Bacon, Paul Johnstone and Calvert Dyer for their help in financial drive, and last of all those wdio so kindly volunteered to sweep the Millidek office. Much gratitude is due Miss Lutz for her needed and excellent advice and Mr. I I art for his good counsel. Such cooperation has made the Millidek possible and worth while, however the bound volume may appear. As editor 1 want to thank you all personally. Here is the Millidek and as you once more look at the dedication, read over the Diary, and review the athletic season, we hope that in some degree we have ac- complished our aim to compile a record that is a memoir for this Millikin year so that you all, class of 1922, faculty, alumnae, and under-graduates, may catch the spirit that will bind you forever to your college. Such is the last word for the 1923 Millidek! And so the curtain goes down. -(,« ) )D NIC! IT! " Two I kindred Forty Eight mi
