Kathleen Kinnamon. DEDICATION We, The Class of 1930, Dedicate this Volume to Dr. J. H. Ransom Who has won the admiration affection of his fellowmen.

As members of that class we like to think we were just a little more intelligent, on the general average, than the proverbial " Green-ones " because among those who registered were twenty-five scholarship students chosen from the upper fifth of classes graduated from ' high schools in Decatur and other towns of Illinois. In this, our junior year, we have given the Junior tea under the direction and management " of our vice president; and the main social event of our class, the Junior Prom, was held in the ballroom of the Orlando Hotel. As to our future — only the Fates can tell, and they are silent. We must wait and see. -43- I 9 Alderson, Allen, Anderson, Atteberry, Barber Bear, Blair, Corson. Deal.

The play was a fitting close to the first day of an enjoyable homecoming. Smoothness of the action on the stage showed the results of careful planning by Prof. Rupel Jones who coached the play. STYLE SHOW The fifth annual Home Economics Department Fashion Show was presented in the Millikin auditorium Tuesday evening, March twenty-sixth. The background for the fashion parade was a modernistic setting of black, gray and silver. The first part of the program depicted the development of fash- ions throughout the centuries, consisting of Egyptian, Grecian, Middle Age, French, Colonial and lastly Modern periods, which were represented by dances and still-life scenes. The second portion of the program was devoted to the modeling of costumes made in the Home Economics department and followed by the modeling of cos- tumes from various Decatur stores. -63- HOMECOMING VlSITORS=LlNCOI,N AAA 2 A I Up an ' At ' Em Attempt at classes — paddles — curious trembling figures of green and blue- torn skirts — excited shrieks — admiring coeds — cynical upperclassmen firelight- pep — hoboes — Kempy.

The Staff wishes to dedicate the athletic section of this, the 1930 Millidek, to Clarence " Bud " Flint, who so prominently has exemplified that typical Millikin Fighting Spirit. Even though he was forced out of football on account of a severe injury, that did not quell his spirit, for he gave every possible effort in helping Coaches Johnson and Gill build a championship machine. It is because of such men as he that famous lines are written of Millikin teams — " and the Blue line held " — " a typical fighting team. " " Bud " was an all-Conference Tackle on the 1927, team which, as Leo Johnson said at the football banquet at the close of the 1927 season, was the " fightingest team I ever coached. " Millikin teams seem to increase that spirit from year to year, and if we have more men of the type of " Bud, " King Leo can qualify that statement every year. .Cg. I FOOTBALL Vise, Adamson, Hankins, Davis, Corbett, Sockler Doty, Richey, Burt, Collins, Chizevski, Gidcomb, Van Dyne Every pound represented in the above picture represents that much fighting power and about one hundredth of the determination as showed by the Big Blue during the 1928 Football season. You can have your " Fighting Mini, " your " Hawks " or your " Crimson Tide, " but we will take our " Fighting Blue " in spite Heaven, Hell or Hoboken. Such men as these have spread the fame of Millikin from coast to coast, from Canada to the Gulf and everywhere you read of them you will find a typical Millikin slogan. The men in the above picture are the ones who carried the brunt of Millikin ' s attacks on their opposition. The men have all sworn off on ties (not neckwear) and are going to win every game next year. Power to you, Big Blue. We must not forget that a big slice of the credit for a championship team goes to the ever-alert coaches — Johnson and Gill — the long and short of Millikin ' s athletics. . 70 .

With only 15 seconds or so remaining in the game with Loy- ola and both elevens without a score, the dark headed flash from Arthur booted the ball over the posts for a field goal and a 3 to 0 victory. It was Millikin ' s first victory over Loyola in four meet- ings between the two. MILLIKIN, 6; WABASH, 6 A surprise aerial attack in the opening minutes of play netted Millikin a 6 to 6 tie with the strong Wabash College gridders. Hankins tossed the ball 38 yards to Sockler, a few line plays followed and then Gidcomb flung the pigskin over the goal line and into the waiting arms of Guy Arnett. The Blue ' s defense stood out during the remainder of the game and although the " Little Giants " made four direct scoring treats, Brook ' s 35 yard dash resulting in the only touchdown. The play of Glenn Seaton Van Dyne Captain — End Burt and Stan Vise was the feature of the day. MILLIKIN, 62; LINCOLN, 0 The first night football game to be staged in the state of Illinois was won by the Millikin athletes who romped through the slush and mire to trounce Lincoln, 62 to 0. Coach Leo Johnson started his second team and employed them until the latter part of the last quarter. Blanck was the sensation of the night, running 62 yards for a touch- down once and 20 yards another time. Adamson scored three markers, Vise two, Woods two, and McGuire one. Englebert Gidcomb Captain-Elect — Tackle -73- Glenn Burt G uard MILLIKIN, 14; BRADLEY, 6 Homecomers were given a real treat when Millikin sunk its enemy from Bradley by a 14 to 6 score. Corbett ' s running bewildered Bradley and gave the Blue its two touchdowns — one a 37 yard sprint through the mud and another a 4 yard ramble. An intentional safety gave Millikin two points more. Brad- ley ' s points came about when Corbett ' s punt from his three yard line was blocked and after changing hands alter- nately with representatives of the oppos- ing teams, Ellness fell on it behind the line. MILLIKIN, 12; CHARLESTON, 12 In the second conference tilt at Charleston, the Boys in Blue were not quite up to form and only emerged with a 12-12 tie in a game that featured twelve first clowns for Millikin, to the Teachers ' five. Sockler bore the brunt of the attack and scored in the first quarter, while Doty ran the ball over for the other counter. " Giddy " played one of his best games in the line, and Capt. Van Dyne was a tower of strength at end until injuries forced him out of the game. As a result of the tie and an otherwise clear record, Charleston claimed a share of the championship, but the scores of the two teams for the season clearly show Millikin ' s superiority. MILLIKIN, 6; WESLEYAN, 2 The game with Wesleyan, Millikin ' s traditional rivals, at Bloomington, proved to be one of the fiercest struggles on the schedule. It was anybody ' s game until the final whistle, with the Green taking the initiative with a two-point lead which was overcome by the Blue ' s one touch- down. A beautiful pass, Gidcomb to Arnett, followed by a couple of line plays, scored for Millikin. Wesleyan twice carried the ball to the Blue six- inch line, but " the Blue line held. " MILLIKIN, 25; ILLINOIS COLLEGE, 0 In spite of a sea of mud which made good football difficult, the Blue Machine functioned in superior fashion against Illinois College when it marched through and around the boys from Jacksonville to a 25 to 0 decision. It was difficult to pick stars in this game. The line held Frank Ciiizevski Tackle - 74 - or tore holes in the opposition and the backs ran wild. Corbett and Vise turned in three touch- downs and Blanck, reserve back, one. MILLIKIN, 19; ST.

With five lettermen as a nucleus around which to build his conference basketball threat. Coach Wayne (Hank) Gill devel- oped a team which showed marked im- provement over last season ' s record. The bovs recorded seven victories in 12 starts against Little 19 foes and in so doing regis- tered 356 points against their opponents ' 318. It is expected that with all lettermen re- turning for next year ' s campaigning, the Blue will make a strong bid for the cham- pionship. Ten men won the " M " in bas- ketball competition during 1928-29. Five non-conference games preceded the Little 19 opening. Four went on the Mil- likin victory calendar while one was re- corded in the defeat column. The initial contest of the season proved a farce, the T. M. U. quint romping over Concordia for a 66 to 12 triumph. Two interesting tilts with Sparks College followed, Millikin copping them both. On December 22 the North Dakota Ag- gies invaded the Millikin stronghold only to be turned back by a 28 to 21 margin. Loyola of Chicago gave " Hank " Gill ' s boys their first taste of defeat on January 3. Rated as one of the best teams in the middle west, the Chicagoans took an early lead and trimmed the Blue, 37 to 18. The game gave Coach Gill a chance to test the strength of his several com- binations before the conference opener. Captain Elect pirward _8o - John Merkeebach Center Shorty Kirke Guard Rib LauE Forward MILLIKIN, 47; LINCOLN, 24 The Blue showed great possibilities in this contest, although it was a one- sided affair. Merkleback led the point-scoring with six field goals and three free throws. MILLIKIN, 24; ST. VIATOR, 23 Coach Gill ' s athletes annexed their second straight conference triumph after a thrilling overtime scrap with St. Viator. Gregg Shoaff ' s free toss decided the game in favor of Millikin. Red Holmes ' floor work was outstanding. WESLEYAN, 21; MILLIKIN, 16 Millikin ' s first Little 19 loss of the season came from the hands of its old rival, Wesleyan. It was probably the most exciting game of the season for the home fans. Millikin led at the half by a narrow 8 to 7 margin. Holmes and Merkleback deserve particular mention, although the whole team played stellar ball. A very tight defense and a long-shot artist named Baker were chief factors in Millikin ' s defeat. BRADLEY, 35; MILLIKIN, 15 Millikin sustained its second conference defeat when it met Bradley Tech at Peoria. The contest was the first following examinations and a two-week lay-off. It was also the first contest for Charley Smith, captain-elect, who was ineligible during the opening semester. Dahl and Harpstrite led the Blue ' s scoring. Greg Shoaff Guard Harold Dahl Guard Red Holmes Forward MILLIKIN, 49; LINCOLN, 25 The second contest with the Railsplitters was a repetition of the first, a walkaway for the Blue. However, it wasn ' t until the last 10 minutes of play that Millikin ran up its big margin over Lincoln. MILLIKIN, 35; AUGUSTANA, 22 The Viking invasion from the north was thwarted here Februarv 8, the Gill team turning the game into a rout and winning by a 13-point margin. Dahl, playing his first game on the home court, showed up well, while Smith and France led the scoring. MILLIKIN, 35; ILLINOIS COLLEGE, 22 Millikin struggled through a listless game to trim the Collegians at Jack- sonville. The only important feature outside the frequent changes in the lineups, was that the victory kept the Blue on a par with Wesleyan in the Little Nine- teen flag chase. Charley Smith dropped in sufficient points to gain high-scoring honors. ST. VIATOR, 26; MILLIKIN, 23 St. Viator reversed the decision on Millikin in the second encounter between the two schools. However, another overtime game was required before the Blue fell before their opponents. The game was close throughout, but a three-point lead by the Irish in the overtime proved too much for Millikin. Smith again dis- tinguished himself as point-getter. _82.

Individual stars would be difficult to find in this contest. Holmes was high-point man with Smith and Dahl giving him a close race. WESLEY AN, 31; MILLIKIN, 15 The Methodists clearly outclassed the Gill team in this match. Meehan was the chief contributor to the downfall, the Wesleyan forward counting 19 points. MILLIKIN, 30; MONMOUTH, 28 Monmouth surprised the Blue warriors by grabbing a 16 to 13 lead by half-time and forced Millikin to come through with a last-half attack to win. France featured in the second half comeback. BRADLEY, 42; MILLIKIN, 25 Rolling up a big lead in the opening half, Bradley grabbed its second straight win over Millikin in the final conference game of the season. Millikin outscored the Hilltoppers in the second half, but could not overcome the tremendous scoring- advantage. Wesleyan was the ' only other team to trim Millikin twice during the season. - 3- Baseball Track Swimming Tennis BASEBALL— 1928 Barnhart, Caywood, Gaines, Ingles, Renshaw, Resh. Chizevski, Gallion (manager), Barnes Kirke, Schooley, Hankins, Smith, Hahekost, Andrews, Johnson (coach) To relate the outcome of Millikin ' s 1928 baseball season is a sad task. The season was far from being a poor one, for not until the very last game of the campaign did the Blue meet defeat within the Little 19 conference. But that lone defeat, coming at the hands of St. Viator, shattered a long-cherished cham- pionship dream held by Coach Leo Johnson and his charges. After a very successful southern trip, the Millikin squad began warfare within the conference by tamping Lincoln College, 8 to 1. Seven more Little 19 teams fell before the Blue and then Johnson ordered his team to Burbonnais for the final tilt of the season. Hankins and Gidcomb had been turning in masterful performances from the box throughout the season, but Johnson elected to start Andrews against the St. Viator bunch, a team Millikin has not beaten in baseball for the last ten years. Andrews injured his arm during football in 1927 and had spent the major portion of his time at first base. But for all that, Andrews might have been returned a victor had not his mates committed three errors in the second inning which, coupled with two hits, allowed five runs to cross the plate. The Blue never could overcome this margin, although it tried desperately, and the contest ended 6 to 5 in favor of the Irish. _8 5 - ' 4 In the meantime Bradley had also gone through the season unbeaten, but on the same day St. Viator trimmed Millikin, Knox put the skids under the Techmen. The score was 9 to 5. Under ordinary circumstances, one would judge that the race should have ended in at least a tie, but not this one. One game postponed during the season due to rain left Millikin with a record of eight wins against one loss. Bradley, on the other hand, managed to play off all its engagements and although it too lost one game, the one extra contest it concluded yielded nine victories and a consequent championship. And so goes the hard-luck story. However, taking the season as a whole, it was great. Only two games were lost and both of those defeats can be attributed to errors. The one setback has already been cited. The other occurred on the Southern jaunt, a flock of errors giving Memphis a ten-inning struggle. The remaining skirmishes, 11 in all, were recorded as victories. Ten of these came in succession. South- western was beaten in the first tilt at Memphis and after losing the second, the Millikin squad traveled to Jonesboro where it whipped the Arkansas Aggies twice. Returning to Illinois, Millikin triumphed over Lincoln, Charleston, Wesleyan and Illinois College in two-game series with each. Then came that thunder- bolt from St. Viator to scorch the Blue ' s title aspirations. Millikin boasted a team of hard-hitters who were usually consistent about it. The pitching was also superb, Hankins and Gidcomb turning in strong exhibitions upon every appearance in the box. The most one-sided affair of the season was a 13 to 1 verdict over Lincoln, while the close struggles were with St. Viator, Wesleyan and Illi- nois College. The Methodists were beaten, 3 to 1, while the Collegians suffered a 4 to 2 loss. Illinois College aided in the slugfest of the season, but finally went down under a 15 to 11 count. Frank Chizevski Captain — Left Field EnglEkErt GlDCOMn Captain-Elect — Pitcher - 86 - 1928 TRACK SEASON Vise, - Tidwell, Jester, , Resh, Gidcomb, Harris, Miller, Smith Harpstrite, Stiegemeier, Sockler, Pechar, Aklerson Although the Blue squad met with indifferent suc- cess during the 1928 track season, there were certain highlights which deserve particular mention. Millikin participated in three dual meets and the conference meet at Monmouth. The Gillmen ran wild in the initial meet with Lincoln College and in this meet Captain-Elect Harpstrite tossed the stick 194 feet in the javelin event, approaching the state record. In the second contest, Millikin lost to Illinois Col- lege, but Captain Stiegemeier, Jester, Resh, and Harp- strite all garnered first places, while Randolph, Tid- well, Sockler, Vise, Laue, Gidcomb and McClelland accounted for points. At Peoria the Blue invaders were repulsed, but took three firsts in the javelin, low hurdles and high jumps. Millikin placed in the final conference meet at Monmouth which was won by Knox College. Men placing were : Harpstrite, second in javelin event ; and Jester, second in high jump event. -87- Ted HARrsTuiTr:, Captain-Elect Eari, Hankins, Captain Fancy Diving Champion The Millikin tank team showed up well in the State Meet at St. Viator, considering the short time and scarcity of swimmers available. Captain Earl Hankins was the bright light of the meet, taking first in the fancy diving for the second consecutive year. Stoddart won second in the 100 yard breast-stroke, but Fawley was eliminated in the free-style preliminaries. Wesleyan copped both the silver loving cups offered — one for high-point team of the meet and the other for winning the 200 yard relay. 88 . TENNIS— 1928 Jamks Dunning Davis Douthit Captain-Elect Captain Millikin ' s tennis team concluded a successful season, during which not one dual meet was lost, by placing second in the Little 19 conference tournament in both singles and doubles. Dave Douthit, captain of the team, lost the final singles match of the tourna- ment held at Monmouth to Messick of Knox by scores of 8-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4. Douthit and Jimmy Dunning lost in the doubles finals to Messick and Diemer of Knox by scores of 6-3, 7-5, 6-4. In dual meets Millikin net players won three out of six matches from Wes- leyan, seven out of ten matches from Illinois College, and five out of six matches from Normal, a total of 15 matches won out of twenty-two played, exclusive of tournament play. Neither Douthit nor Dunning lost a single match in either singles or doubles in pre- tournament play. Those making up the squad, which was under the management of Prof. H. P. Rogers, were Dave Douthit, captain , Jimmy Dunning, Ford Dickerson, Harvey Tucker, Oliver Miller and William Petty. .89- CO-ED ATHLETICS Miss Hickernell Our little athletic director whose sincerity and grace and charming personality has its roots way down in a very sunny disposition. -90 .

They won their final game, 12 to 11. Dorothy Cope pitched the free-throw that won them the tournament. Mae Ross Taylor and Jo Ross were the outstanding guards. Frances Wilson was captain. The traditional Freshman-Sophomore Scrap was played shortly after Home- coming. Miss Hickernell started drilling both teams early in the fall. The Sopho- mores out-played the Freshmen in both technique and teamwork to win by a score of five to one. Helen Kuhle, who captained the victorious Freshman Hockey team the previous year, and who is an all around athlete, was again captain of her team. - 93 - (OLLEQE OFFERX i cry (o o be at home in all lands and all ages ■ to count nature a familiar acquaintance and art an intimate friend; to gain a standard for th ? appreciation of other mens vfark,and the criticism of our o x)n ; to carrj? t fie kev)s of the utorlcta library in )our pocket, and feel its resources beh ind ?ou in v)hate ter taskj?ou un- dertake; to make hosts of friends among the men and )omen of jfaur ou)n age x)ho are to he lead- ers in all Walks of life; to lose ourself in gen- erous enthusiasms, and cooperate Dith others for common ends ; to learn manners from students Dhoare gentlemen and gentlewomen, and form character under professors )ho are (pristians;- this is the offer of the college for four of the bestj ears ofj our life.

Treasurer The 1928-29 Student Council organized early in the fall of the school year and kept active throughout the entire nine months of the college year. The first work of the council was to supervise the Homecoming week program, which was done in an efficient manner. The Student Council also purchased two loving cups to be awarded annually to the fraternity and sorority having the highest average in scholarship. Towards the close of the year, the Student Council undertook a survey of all the activities of Millikin students to determine th e extent of extra - curricular activities in regard to scholarship. Under a capable leader this year, the Student Council stood out in affairs of the college much more than it had in the last few years. - i35 - I 9 KAPPA PHI KAPPA OFFICERS Harold Holt- President Harry Taylor Vice-president Robert Valentine Secretary William Wherry..

The Biology Club meets regularly on the second Wednesday of every month. Activities of the year 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. - 147 - Things I Love Versus Things I Hate The things I lore are many, The things I hate are jew, For hate is like a flower That ' s missed by morning dew. For lore mores near and rery slow, While hate mores fast with far to go, So when you plant a seed of hate You are hut sowing your own fate. All pretty things there are I lore, — The earth below the Hearen abore, The winding streams that erer flow, The sun, the wind, the rain, the snow. I lore the stars, I lore the moon; The happy days that end too soon; The moonlight nights, the months within; The crickets and their merry din. I lore the lad, I lore the lass, Who, someday, through this world will pass. I lore the rich, the poor, the great, And all who ' ll pass through Hearen ' s Gate. I hate to hare an untrue friend, One who belieres he is God, sent. But when it ' s time for him to aid, He ' s just a coward and is afraid. I hate the girl or boy you meet Whose pals are falsehood and deceit. These things I will not, cannot bear As those around are well aware. All these things, then, I lore and hate, And others which I can ' t relate, But please remember, the God abore He did not hate, He only lored. .. 148 _ CALENDAR Dedication To those unfortunate personalities, the Calendar editors of next year ' s Millidek, ( who will have to read it to know how to write theirs ) we do dedicate this journal. Editors ' Note: But we wish to assure the reader — if any — that that is not how this one came into being. There wouldn ' t have been any calendar this year but for the fact that one dark night a much mangled manuscript was found in Mr. Goleman ' s wastebasket. (It appears there are more ways than one of reach- ing others ' minds — such as through others ' wastebaskets.) The document seemed to be a diary, but most careful scrutiny and cross-examination failed completely to disclose the writer ' s identity and did, in fact, only robe him in a dense cloak of contradictory evidence and conflicting personality only excelled by that of the Messrs. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. So we present it to the reader, feeling that in such a case all the facts should be known — whose diary? $100, reward for any information leading to the apprehension and detention as a target for the forthcoming " vegetable rush " of the unknown author.

Tri Delts managed to drag down a cup at last — floated a float in the home- coming parade. Newspapers called it a crescent boat. Well, maybe it was. The rain washed all the paint off the oars, but didn ' t seem to do much good with the faces. Pi Phi house got first for being futuristic — I mean more futur- istic !

Y ' oughta heard the howls — thought the sisterhoods didn ' t believe in rough house ! But I guess it was only the Alpha Chi ' s and Pi Phi ' s fighting again. They had to put the Pi Phi initiates in one room, Zetas in another and so on, to keep ' em out of trouble before the service. Great life! Dec. 12— Y. W. CHRISTMAS SONG SERVICE (MEN INVITED). Y.

Like to know what culture a bunch of niggers could teach — culture of cotton, I guess. Dec. 18— EIGHTH ANNUAL VESPERS. Vesper service this afternoon. Ford Dickerson sure looks nice in a lace curtain ! And the Pi Phi ' s sure rate the madonnas — such madonna-like dispo- sitions, no doubt! The only kick I got is those things always come after class hours when you might be seeing a good show at the Empress. JANUARY Ian. 5— PROVINCETOWN PLAYERS CANCEL PERFORMANCE OF IN ABRAHAM ' S BOSOM.

This was not brought about by gov- ernments, Socialists or societies. It has been made possible by the initiative, courage, vision, work and brains of the men in this industry. Many experiments in applied Social- ism have been made — attempting to bring it down from the misty heights of theory and apply it to the facts of every- day life. Quite a number of these experi- ments have been tried in America. Every single one of them has failed. Not one made any contribution to civili- zation; they left not a single invention, tool of trade, work of art, industry or scientific discovery.

Mighty glad to see the people who do things appreciated him ; Patsy K. got him to talk in Y. W. He was a keen speaker, I ' ll tell you. Jan. 21-26— EXAMS. Never had such mean exams. Think exams oughta be abolished anyhow. Rotten grades ! A fellow can ' t play the profs the way the Pi Phis do — isn ' t any way for a fellow to make grades. Rotten world anyhow ! Jan. 28— NEW SEMESTER BEGINS. Guess the Sig Alph treasury must be low. Saw ' em over at school pledging a new fellow and they had to take off Freddie Gaines ' pledge pin to do it. Great world !

It is merely a good way of eating Staley ' s Syrup with a fork! And the waffle . . . well, waffles are non-skid pancakes, and their ex- cuse for existing is because they are delicious with good syrup. But have you ever tasted them with Staley ' s Syrup? Then you will really know why waffles were invented. Insist that Mother, or the fra- ternity house cook, sorority house cook, or whoever has the honor of FIVE FA MO I feeding you . . . insist that they provide Staley ' s Syrup on those crispy brown waffles or golden pancakes. When someone suggests " let ' s make fudge " don ' t forget Staley ' s Crystal White Syrup. Nothing compares with it for super results in candy-making.

As he slowly started to go He was filled with a great desire to know The reason and whyfore of such a din Coming from the Kappa Delt house, or rather from within. Little did he guess that the cause of it all Was the Kappa Delt Chorus in the slumber hall. Yes, ' twas the truth about the noise ' Twas only the sleeping Kappa Delt Boys. . 191 _ DAUGHTER !
