All majors in the Department of Biology and underclassmen who show a scientific attitude toward their work and are selected by the club, are members. The purpose of the organization is to foster scholarship and to cultivate interest in biological ques- tions. Programs consist of talks by student members, staff members and profes- sional and scientific men of Decatur or neighboring towns and universities. The Biology Club meets regularly on the second Wednesday of every month. Activities of the rear are closed by a traditional picnic held some time in May. The Club ' s emblem, appearing above, has a special significance to every member of the organization.

When Leo Johnson took up coaching duties at the Blue institution in the fall of 1927, he found that some of his last year ' s football team had remained at home, some had come back to school ineligible, and some had come back to rejoin the squad. Those who did not come back and those who came back ineligible left a wide gap for Big Blue to fill, and that feat had to be accomplished before the IMcKendree game. The time came for the McKendree tussle and found Tohnson ready with a new lineup containing new and old men. After the Lebanon athletes had nailed Bluemen behind the goal twice to amass four points, Millikin started a campaign downfield against the McKendree goal line. Van Dyne toted the ball around the end after a neat re- versal of his field, and scored a touchdown, which, with Sockler ' s toe, made the score seven to four for the home boys. MILLIKIN, 7; WABASH, 12. Millikin displayed her greatest pigskin prowess of all the pre-Thanksgiving day contests in the 1927 season when she met and almost conquered the Little Giants. " Flash " Danny Devers streaked through the Indiana defense in the second quarter to score after a brilliant 28 yard run. Sockler added the point and pushed Millikin ahead seven to six. The score stood at that count for the rest of the half and during a goodly portion of the thirtl quarter. However, the Little Giants started an irresistable drive that ended in defeat for the Blue boys. It could not be said that Millikin let down once, but it can be said that the eleven suffered some bad reverses that decided the contest. Byford Lee and Devers, both freshmen, looked good performing for the second time on a college team. MILLIKIN, 8; ST. VIATOR, 13 (Homecoming) Playing w t. Viator in the second successive homecoming argument was just too much for Millikin to handle. The Irish lads came to Decatur in no passive mood and got together to decide that these Millikin boys were angling for another perfect homecoming celebration. " And besides, " the Aviator coach is alleged to have said, " they think we will give up just because we have a green appearance. Let ' s surmount these gu_ s, men. " Page One Hundred Tluitv-six And they did so. f ' ut the sad tale has two sides, a couple aspects, so as to speak. If the good old referee hadn ' t blown his whistle when Sockler was in the midst of a run that put the ball on the three yard line, the story in the newspapers the next day might have been different. Viator scored a pair of touchdowns while the Blue team scored one and a safety. And thus was the home- was the homecoming- celebration sadly marred. MILLIKIN, 7; LOYOLA, 25. King Leo found in the Loyola contest up in Chicago, that the second string is not as good as the first team. He started the second team, apparently saving the first string- boys for the ensuing contest with Wesleyan. The Cath- olics beat the seconds down and rolled them under with comparative ease. The difference was noted when Leo injected Van Dyne and Steigemeier into the clash. One by one, the first team was sent into service, and in the last half, Lee snagged a wandering Loyola pass, trotted about twenty yards and scored Millikin ' s only counter. It was not a very festive occasion — not so hot, we might sav. MILLIKIN, 7; WESLEYAN, 7. The Methodists came down to Decatur with alleged intentions of giving the Blue another conference setback, but the next thing heard from the Bloomington village after the contest was that Wesleyan had managed to hold the strong Millikin outfit to a tie. Leo had all eleven hitting that day. Before the contest, he fired them with the fear of God and the lust for victory. Devers scored in the first half for the benefit of the homecoming crowd and Sockler added another point on the attempt to put Alillikin in the lead. The Blue looked good all the time against Wesleyan. Save for the last period, when Wesleyan scored on a long pass, almost everything indicated a big Millikin day. The homecoming battle was the last played on the J. M. U. field during the 1927 season. MILLIKIN, 6; ILLINOIS COLLEGE, 0. Everytime Millikin has played Illinois College in the last three rears, the two elevens have played in mud. Down at Jacksonville last November, the athletes mixed in another mud puddle. Millikin scored her winning points on a blocked punt affair, wherein Captain Steigemeier felled the oval as it went across S. W. Van Dyne End (Capt.-Elcct) Page One Hiinilred Thirtv-sci ' en the victory line. Otherwise, the battle was one of filth ami dirty playing. " Never, " declares Glen Burt sheepishly, " have I become so dirty playing in a single game. Glen wasn ' t the only one who got " dirty. " Everyone but the bench athletes got dirty that day. MILLIKIN, 6; BRADLEY, 2. We have been asked by the editor to devote a volume or two to the epic vic- tory at Peoria last Thanksgiving clay. The explanation of the victory is simple. As Hankins says, " When we started the scoring march down the field against those Bradlev men, the best line in the country couldn ' t have stoped us. Is this not explanation enough ? Leo and his men evidently had not purged themselves of the feeling they had the year before when they played Bradley. Leo didn ' t have to ask the boys to give — thev just gave out of their own volition. Lee pla} ' ed a fine game at cen- ter, but at one time, he wavered. He passed the ball back of his own line and thus contributed Bradlev ' s only points to them. Not a man on either team gave up. Bradlev was balked almost a half dozen times after reaching the threshold of the Millikin goal. However, when the IMillikin boys went down the field. — a plunge here, an ofif tackle smash there, and a long pass from Hankins to Van Dyne, they could not be balked. Steigemeier added a fitting climax to it all and also to his college career by racing around the end on a flawlessly executed end- run-triple-pass play. He scored the six points that downed " the conference cham- pions.

(Basketball 1927-1928 3 ANK GILL and his last edition of the MilHkin basketball team failed to break even in the season ' s campaign, but a lot of things took place that gives one to thmk that Millikin will have a mighty sweet outfit if all the players come back to school. In the first place, Hank had nothing but freshman material from which he could draw his team. At best, a freshman team is inexperienced. The campaign, from the standpoint of wins and losses shows only four vic- tories and three times as many defeats. However, Millikin did not look like a poor team at any time during the season. The players were small, but clever scrappers, and in the four contests that they won, they displayed a superior brand of basketball against teams larger and older than theirs. During the second se- mester, the starting lineup of each game had just one sophomore in it, and the rest were freshmen. Rib Laue and Charlie Smith contributed largely to what success Millikin met, and little Chuck earned a place on one of Brick Young ' s mythical all-conference teams. If both are back next season, more can be expected from Coach Hank Gill ' s cagers. Paiic One Hundred Forty-six G. C. Long Guard C. E. Smith Forward F. B. WlLMOTH Ce7iter L. T.

The play was over the local boys ' heads all the first half and most of the second half. As has been said, the Millikin air was full of " flying Sparks. " MILLIKIN, 27; ALUMNI, 52. This alumni game was good or bad, whatever you wish to call it. It proved decisively that Millikin has a very, very strong alumni basketball team and that the varsity was very, very impotent alongside the old Blue performers. Rex Milhkm and Snake Bowman flipped the sphere through the nets from all points of the hall. Charlie Smith was practically all the varsity could show in the way of basketball to the alumni, and his amusing by-plays with Rex Millikin added a thrill to the contest that made it worth watching. MILLIKIN, 23; SPARKS, 27. Sparks again. Not quite so bad this time, but the Boy Blues still had plenty to learn. The Sparks floor was so small it was shameful to the Millikin boys. Little boys need big floors on which to display their best wares. MILLIKIN, 16; EVANSVILLE, 36. How the Hoosiers play basketball was concisely illustrated to Hank Gill ' s cage aspirants over at Evansville, Indiana, when the Blue played the second road trip during the Christmas fiolidays. They play it entirely too fast for the Deca- tur boys to follow, it was discovered, but at the same time, they cannot do battle any more fiercely than the basketeers from Illinois.

After taking dictation for a matter of two or three weeks from four teams, Hank ' s youngsters turned about and slapped Lincoln down by a 43 to 30 count. Like young colts turned out to pasture, the : Iillikin men turned on their first con- ference opponents and went through them with a speed that brightened the sea- son ' s cage hopes. Charlie Smith was good for 19 points and the little fella was a constant source of terror to the railsplitters. The victory atoned for the defeat at the hands of the Lincoln team at Lincoln during the previous season. MILLIKIN, L5; WESLEY AN, 24. Toe Baker, the pride of Wesleyan University, and consequently of Blooni- ington, and the Little 19 was held scoreless by Charlie Smith while this youth scored two-thirds of Millikin ' s points. Joe and Charlie tangled in a delightful af- fair that interested all the spectators that packed the Wesleyan gym. Eight points in the last quarter upset iMillikin ' s playhouse and destroyed a close contest. The conference champs did not look invincible to the Blue after this contest. MILLIKIN, 21; BRADLEY, 34. After meeting and battling llradley ' s cage hopes. Gill and his men decided that " here are the conference champs, " for they handled } Iillikin masterfully, more so than Wesle ' an. The small Bradle - floor and the large Bradle}- players turned the Blue back to a decisive defeat. Not once did Bradley trail after the first few minutes of the conilict.

Millikin cagers began to show the effects of a week ' s intensive basketball when they met St. Viator. The Irishmen doubled the score on the Blue on the Blue floor. Clever, fast, and well built, the Bourbonnais athletes scored often against Millikin. Evard, fast forward, lead the winners ' scoring by his shots un- der the basket. He bolted past the J. M. U. guards time and again to score. The defeat was the third straight conference setback out of four starts. MILLIKIN, 28; AUGUSTANA, 26. A string of conference defeats was stopped when the Swedes were over- come in the last few minutes of battle. In the last quarter, the battle between Millikin and Augustana was knotted four times in a tie, and in the remaining min- utes Millikin came from behind to take the Swedes on their own floor. Rib Laue was the big disturbance as far as the Swedes were concerned, but his work saved Gill another defeat. Charlie Smith tied Laue for point honors. MILLIKIN, 24; MONMOUTH, 27. In the second road trip in as many nights, Millikin lost a contest to Mon- mouth. Long shots scored the victory over Millikin and made the road trip a fif- ty-fifty success. Smith lead Millikin ' s scoring with ten counters. The contest was the last played by Millikin before the termination of the first semester, and with it went Wilmoth and Long, Millikin ' s only two large veterans. Low grades caused the departure of others from the squad. Page One Hundred Forty-nine M. B. McClelland Forward VV. H. Trisch Gtiard J. A. Kraft Gttard Emerson McClure Guard MILLIKIN, 24; ST. VIATOR. 42. Defeat for the third time during the season from one team came to Millikin from vSt. Viator. After tamping MilHkin in the homecoming football event, doubl- ing the score on them in the lirst basketball contest between the two schools, the Irish performed a third operation and totally disabled ] Iillikin ' s basketball prow- ess, this time at St. Viator in the second meeting of the two schools in the same season. Coach Gill used a new lineup, introducing the yearling team, IMerkle- bach. Smith, Laue, Harpstrite and Kirk started the contest and it developed that they started most of the remaining contests. With three imported basketball stars in her lineup. Eureka failed to impress Millikin in the first of their two engagements. Playing the first game on the home floor since the St. Viator contest, the Gillmen took a wide lead over the vet- eran Athenian stars, Sprouse, Wasilewski and Wells, only to have it thinned down during the second half. During the last period, the race ebbed and flowed, one team taking the lead from the other. In the final minute, Arkel Fisher sank a basket from mid floor that broke a tie and cinched a victory for Millikin. Rib Laue was deadly from all angles that evening, for the Robinson youth scored 16 points, — all of them field baskets. The Blue were then to take the last road trip before the final home session of two games. MILLIKIN, 47; EUREKA, 45. MILLIKIN, 32; EUREKA, 54. Only a week before, Millikin had slipped a victory over Eureka, and then. Page One Hundred Fifty Richard Pugsley Porward ]i. E. Nicholson Forward Harvey Jester Center went down into a crushing defeat before the same team. This time, however, MilHkin played in a much smaller gymnasium and before a hostile crowd. Eureka was out for atonement, and they got what they were after. Mauzey and Sprouse became masters about the baskets, while Millikin cagers met with great difificulty in hitting. Time and again, a Millikin player blew a perfectly good sleeper, and in a little time, the sleepers missed amounted to something. Eureka was un- doubtedly the better team throughout the contest, and the Millikin five seemed more or less lost. MILLIKIN, 23; BRADLEY, 44. How Wesleyan licked Bradley still remained a puzzle to the Millikin team after playing. Bradley the second time. Meeting the Hilltoppers on the Millikin gym, the Blue played the game point for point during the first half, and left the floor just two points behind Bradley. In the second half, the Bradley five op- erated the most brilliant offensive attack any conference team flashed on Milli- kin during the season. Playing against a scrapping Millikin crew didn ' t seem to bother the Hilltoppers much, and it only wore the Millikin boys out. McQueen, Bradley center, and Poland, reserve forward, poured baskets into the hoop, and the contest ended with 21 points difference, as compared to the two point varia- tion at the hall. The contest was somewhat rough. MILLIKIN, 25; WESLEYAN, 4L How Wesleyan licked Bradley was somewhat clarified after Millikin met the champs the second time. Millikin still has to be satisfied, however, for in the first half, the stellar Rib Laue was jerked from the contest, and his absence left Page One Hundred Fifty-one i a gaping hole in the Milhkin oitense and defense. The half ended 20 to 16 for Wesleyan — just a minute after Laue was bounced on a personal foul char ge. In the second half, Meehan and Lindquist became democratic and flipped baskets from the sides with unerring and appalling accuracy. Millikin went down be- fore a truly superior team, but Bradley and Wesleyan must have had some racket together before the Hilltoppers bowed. Next year, we hope, the big mix will in- volve Millikin. MILLIKIN, 31; SPARKS, 30. For two games and 36 minutes, Sparks had it over Millikin, but in the last four minutes of the third game, Millikin showed vast improvement to slip a one point victory over the touted accountants of Shelbyville. Rib Laue played another fast game of basketball, and to him a large slice of the spoils is due. He ac- counted for the winning points and led the Blue scoring with 13 counters. Charlie Smith, ever a leading factor, came second with a dozen tallies. The third time was in sooth the charm, and the Millikin cagers hung up their suits with the satisfaction of accomplishing the defeat of a team which was originally unde- feated in 17 starts. May the next season find all the games in the same column with the final Sparks battle. 1 Pagc One Hnndrcd Fifty-tiro Season ' s ' Record Milli kin. 6 Southwestern, 4 Milli kin, 0 Southwestern, 2 Milli kin. 5 Arkansas Aggies, 8 Milli kin. 15 Arkansas Aggies, 6 Milli kin. 8 Harrisburg, 9 Milli kin. 2 St. Viator, 11 Milli kin, 5 Charleston, 1 Milli kin, 10 Illinois College 4 Milli kin, -» St. ' iator 4 Milli kin. 9 Wesleyan 5 Page One Hundred Fifty-four (Baseball, 1927 UT oi sixteen baseball games scheduled for Leo Johnson ' s Millikin baseball team, Millikin won five, lost five, and gave up six to Jupe Pluvius, the rainmaster. Three victories and two losses were the conference achievements of the Blue nine, while the two losses and three losses were the results of a southern trip. Whether or not the southern trip was a success depends largely on how much water one likes, and whether one likes it a foot deep or a yard deep on the baseball field. After getting down in Dixie, the Millikin players became marooned by the storms and floods that swept the south last sj ring. Leo had to leave his team in its last game to come to Decatur and handle the High Schol Inter- scholastic Track and Field meet. The pair of conference defeats in baseball came from St. Viator. That school of Irishmen seems to have a huge jinx on the Blue right at present, for they followed up these two victories by three more in football and basketball. Andrews, Kish and Hankins were the main performers on the mound for Millikin. Perhaps the most notable piece of work in this respect was the five hit game Hankins pitched against Charleston. He had the visitors on his hip and at the end of eight innings, had them down to three hits. King Leo lost Kish, Bifi: " Long, Art Long, Holbrook, Kaler and Flint through one source or another, but his 1928 crop, at the start of the season, looked prom- ising for the season ' s contentions.

Page One Hundred Fifty-six Richardson Hankins SCI-IOOLEY Anderson Sujimmmg, 1927 l,THOUGH the Blue failed to place a winning team in the first annual Little Nineteen swimming meet, she did place some winning individuals in the contest. Earl Hankins brought a fancy diving championship back to Millikin, after competing against a field of versatile divers in the Wesleyan swimming pool at Bloomington. Bunny Anderson came in fourth place in the diving contests and finished second in the breast stroke event to add further points to Millikin ' s score. Schooley and Richardson performed on the relay team, which won a place in the relay event. The Illinois Wesleyan tan kers copped the team honors in the meet and the Methodist swimm.ers won most of the individual events. Hankins repeated his 1927 performance in the 1928 meet held at St. Viator in March. Acting in the role of captain of the Blue team and defender of a vaunted title, he dove to a second championship. Gilbert Stoddard, a freshman, won the only other place for Millikin in the meet. He finished second in the breast stroke struggle. A large part of the success of Millikin ' s swimming team is due to Dr. A. F. Goodyear and his unseffish efl:orts expended in developing the squad. He gave freely of his valuable time.

Helen Hays and Mae Ross Taylor represented Millikin in doubles, and Helen Moffett in singles. Although Wheaton College carried off first place hon- ors in both singles and doubles, Millikin offered exceptionally close competition, Hays and Taylor played well and fast, and for a time, victory for them seemed certain, but after a hotly contested game, they were defeated. Moffett played a good game of singles, but was defeated by Knox who in turn was defeated by Wheaton.

They say it ' s the best time of your life, and I ' m just beginning. Mary came home last year with the cutest favors and programs — wonder if I ' ll be that popular. And there will be rushing — I do hope some sorority will be interested in me. I don ' t know anvone here — what if I wouldn ' t get rushed at all. . . . (Enter Micky, sauntering, speculatively) Micky : College is hell ! It ' s the hardest life I have ever lived. If I didn ' t Page One Hundred Seventy-one have just one more year. I ' d never be coming back now. And rushing — it simply slays me. I hope we don ' t pull all eggs this year. I suppose I ' ll have to be one of those carefree college girls for another week. Oh damn ! I won ' t have a chance to see Jim till it ' s all over, and I won ' t dare smoke or swear until we have the future Y.W. presidents safely pledged. That house of ours is a disgrace — we ' ll have to use candle- light and trust to the old line about " building in the Spring. " But freshies arc dumb. (Eyes alight on Ruth Ann) What ho! There ' s a hot looking number — a prospect for Alpha Bet or I never saw one. ] Iy duties begin earlier than I expected. (To Ruth Ann, sweetly) Are you going down to Millikin? Ruth Ann : Whv yes, I am — It ' s my first year and I ' m thrilled to tears. Do you go there ? Micky: Yes, I do, and I hate to think that this will be my last year. It is mar- velous. We have the best times at the house. That ' s one of the most desirable features of college life, vou know, the contact with the other girls, the parties and spreads — and a sorority house is the place in which to form ideal friendships. Ruth Ann: (Rapturously — looking for Micky ' s pin) It sounds marvelous — May I ask to what sorority you belong? Micky: Alpha Beta Chi, one of the oldest on the campus and among the largest of nationals. We have the most gorgeous lot for the new house we are planning to build this spring, just a block from the west end of the campus. Our girls are so busy with outside activities we hardly have time to think of the old house, and after all the house itself means so little. You know it ' s zvlio lives in it that really counts. RuTh Ann: (impressed by the fraternal spirit) That ' s what a Wesleyan graduate told me once — she was a Delta Sigma Kappa, and was always telling me about the good times she had in college. (Train stops) Micky: Here we are at the station. If you have never been here before it will be difficult to find your way about. I ' ll be only too glad to take you to your new room. Is it in Aston Hall ? Ruth Ann : Why yes, it is, and it ' s perfectly lovely of you to ' take the Page One Hundred Seventy-two trouble to help me. I certainly would appreciate it, ' cause 1 really do have a kind of lost feeling.

Monty (Alpha Bet rushing captain) : I like your attitude so much. So many freshmen have such a superficial basis for judging a sorority. They con- sider the number of rooms in the house, or the number of fur coats the girls have. But those who decide that way are always unhappy in the end. By the way, do you happen to know the Pierces from Oak Park ? They are very good friends of my family. Ruth Ann : Oh yes, I ' ve known them all my life. They live near us. ( Enter Micky, ' apparently nonchalant, but in reality looking for her " find " of the day before). Micky: I ' m awfully glad to see you again. Let ' s dance and get better ac- quainted. (They dance off). Ruth Ann : What a cute step ! Micky: It ' s the " Watseka Hop, " but you know that a dancer is only as good as her partner. Would you like me to help you finish registering tomorrow? I haven ' t anything planned. Ruth Ann : I could surely use some help. I was all mixed up today — I want to continue my saxophone lessons, and to take voice at the Conservatory, but I don ' t know how to arrange my courses, and when I asked questions no one seemed able to suggest any remedy. Page One Hundred Seventy-three Micky : Well. I ' ve had a few years experience, and may be able te give you a few tips.

I met that girl you call " j licky " on the train and she just adopted me. She even insisted on taking me to the Hall in a cab, and helped me unpack. She asked me to come over here this afternoon too, and now she ' s going to help me register. I never knew that busy Seniors both- ered with green Freshmen. Monty: You were really fortunate to meet Micky, she ' s so active, and so popu- lar. Last vear she rated every formal, and won a cup for first place in a track meet.

This little item is not alone for beginners, but for the many who go after it like hunting coons or shelling corn. First, kno v who you are to kiss. This is an essential factor in the bliss and pleasure of the two involved. Don ' t make a mistake, although a mistake may be good for some students. Don ' t jump up like a bass for a fly, and smack a woman on the neck, or the ear, or the corner of the forehead, or on her nose, or knock her off her waterfall, or jeik her bonnet ribbons, in haste to get through. Don ' t hurry ! The gentlemen should be a little taller. He should have a clean face, also neck and ears, a kind eye, a mouthful of expression, instead of tobacco. Don ' t sit down to it — stand up. One need not be anxious about getting into a crowd. Two persons are enough to corner and catch a kiss ; more persons spoil the sport. Stand firm ; it won ' t hurt you after you get used to it. Take the left hand of the lady in your right ; let your hat go to any place out of the way ; throw your left hand over the shoulder of the lady, and let it fall to about the middle of her back. Don ' t be in a hurry. Draw her gently, lovmgly, tenderly, but firmly to your heart ; her head will fall lightly upon your shoulder. Don ' t be in a hurry. Send a little life down your left arm to let it know its busi- ness. Her left hand is in your right ; exert a little pressure on that also, not like the grip of a vise, but the gentle clasp, full of electricity, thought and respect. DON ' T be in a hurry. Her head lies carelessly on your shoulder. You are nearly heart to heart. Gently, yet manfully, press her to you. Stand firm. Be brave, but don ' t be in a hurry. Her lips are almost open; lean lightly forward with your head, not your body; take good aim (this is important; many a good kiss has been spoiled by bad aim.) The lips meet, the eyes close, the heart opens, the soul rides the storms and weathers the blast. { Don ' t be in a hurry. ) Heaven opens before you. The world shoots from under your feet as a meteor flies across the evening skies. (Don ' t be afraid.) The nerves dance before the newly erected altar of love a zephyrs dance with dew-trimmed flowers. The heart forgets its bitter- ness and the art of kissing is learned. Don ' t jab down on a beautiful mouth as if you were spearing frogs. Don ' t grab and yank the lady as if she were a struggling colt. Don ' t muss her hair, nor scratch her neck, nor bite her cheek, or squizzle her rich ribbons, and leave her mussed, rumpled and mixed. Don ' t flavor your kiss with onions, tobacco, gin. beer, halitosis or brandy.

The " Kill-the-umpire, " " Tramp - ' em - in - the - ground " vocal expert noisily telling the trained, skilled, cjuick-thinking, earnest young men how to play is there. And he really thinks he is doing something when he is yelling advice from the bleachers to the broad- shouldered, sturdy, fighting players who are put- ting into the game their own abilities combined with the skill and knowledge drilled into them by their coach. The easiest thing in the world is to criticize some one else — and the less some people know about a really serious piece of work the more willing they seem to be to tell the trained worker how to do it. Life is not now the simple thing it was when dad was a boy. Trained, skilled, mentally alert men and women are needed these days. This is especially true in the public utility in- dustry. It IS highly technical. Yet it is so essential to modern life in industry, business and the home that it must be handled with certainty. Cities cannot be left in the lurch. They must have light, power, gas, transportation if they are to carry on. Among the men and women who look after the operation and constant development of these utili- ties in Decatur are many technically trained in elec- trical, gas, steam, construction, business and com- mercial activities. Great universities and colleges educated them. Their knowledge and skill are constantly in the service of this industry. They know its complications, needs, and prob- able future. This is the work they have trained themselves to do. They are battling in the game. They are not side-line experts. minois Corporation Page Two Hundred Forty-one SCHAFFER RINGLER EXCLUSIVE FURRIERS Furs Repaired, Remodeled, Cleaned, Made to Order and Stored 253 North Main Phone : Iain 7429 Since 1892 Vans, Trucks and Teams Guaranteed Moth Elimination Moving - Packing - Shipping - Storage Fireproof Warehouse 601 East Wilham Decatur, Ilhnois When you are ready to build or remodel your home We will ha e Imikling liclps that will help you to get the most in l)eauty, comfort and conve- nience for the money 3 ' ou wish to spend. lilakers of IL¥@] for Homes Cerro Gordo at ISroadway Since 1878 B Quality Foods and Service ' BROCK ' ' and ' ' MAC " Open Till 1 O ' Clock Phones 8506 and M. 1650 Patjc Tifo Hundred Forty-four The Prudential Can Supply Your Life Insuran:e Needs LEE WALSTON 326-327 Standard Life Bldg.
