FORTY-FOUR FORTY-SEVEN I HOMECOMING FORTY-EIGHT HOMECOMING, 1930 The 1930 Homecoming celebration officially started with a chapel, Friday morning, November 7. Many alumni had returned, a few of which talked in chapel, recounting old experiences, memories of their " best four years " . Chapel period was more or less subdued following an edict from the administration pro- hibiting the usual challenge given by the Sophomore president to the leader of the Freshmen — one must preserve decorum and the stage scenery for the annual pla -. The challenge, however, was given outdoors following chapel. A slight skirmish at that point laid out a few of the less numerous Sophs. In the afternoon the annual battle was held on the athletic field. This year the fighting was less serious than usual, however, Alpha Omega playing the role of chaperone ciuite professionally. A tug of war, a sock rush, and stick race were among the events. Needless to say, the Frosh won. AV ' hen will there be a husky bunch of warring Sophs to upset the long record of Freshman victories? The students and homecomers adjourned to the auditorium to enjoy the first Town and Gown play, " The Queen ' s Husband " . Professor Rupel and Janice Meredith certainly gave proof of their excellent coaching. The play was quite a success as it was a hilarious comedy and quite in the mood of the gala occasion. The parade which traveled up town, through the business district and home was indeed the best of its kind for many years. Practically the entire student body took part, riding either the floats or borrowed automobiles. The Tri Delts won first place for the floats; a regular wild west round up was the subject of the winning float, members dressed as cowboys following on horses, ponies, nags, or what have you. The Alpha Chis placed second with an engine and car loaded with co-eds " coming back to Millikin " . Zeta Tau Alpha won third place with its artistic blue and white automobile. Homecomers next attended the Homecoming luncheon at the Westminster Church. Old friends met for the first time perhaps in years, and occupations and achievements were the general topic of conversation — doubtless new babies, husbands, and sweethearts too. Miss Treva Marshall, Zeta Tau Alpha, received the honor of traveling the longest distance back to Millikin ; she is a missionary from India. Millikin gave Illinois College a battle that afternoon. This game had long been anticipated, and killings were looked for, as Illinois College in 1929 had ruined Millikin ' s almost-championship record. The score at the finish this day was 45-0, a rare tidbit for any homecomer. All the fraternities had dinners for the old grads in the chapter houses Saturday- night. ] Iaking new friendships and renewing old ones are the principal joys of homecomers, and family parties such as these annual dinners are always much looked forward to. Dinners were followed by " dolling up " for the big hop at the Orlando Hotel. Everyone went, unless you count those unfortunates who forgot to bring friend- husband dowm to Decatur on this trip. Such a dance was worth a thousand — no one could have been bored — happy faces everywhere. Sunday morning the winners of house decorations were announced. The Alpha Chis won the first prize with a map of the United States showing all roads leading to Millikin. The Tekes were second with a clever theatre idea and bill- boards announcing the events of the week-end. The Tri Delts placed third with a ranch house, or the Tri Delta Round-up. riFTV FRANK XIOWTON Mniiaacr FIFTY -TWO Dever Arnett Collins MILLTKIN, 6; CORNELL, 0 That night football is a success at Alilli- kin was shown as the championship Blue football team opened the 1930 season. Be- fore a record crowd, the Big Blue won by a narrow margin over the lowans. The Blue consistently outplayed the invaders through- out the contest, but the weakness of a green line prevented Millikin backs from scoring in crucial moments. Closing minutes of the game found both teams battling frantically to break a scoreless tie. With less than three minutes to play, a thirty-eight yard pass from Corbett to Arnett was complete to put the ball on the sixteen yard line. Heidinger m.ade first down and France went over for the touchdown. MILLIKIN, 19; CARTHAGE, 0 King Leo ' s second chapter of his 1930 championship edition presented an entirely new " line " to the public, as the Blue and White swamped Carthage, nineteen to noth- ing, for a first conference win. The " Bull Dog " line was a veritable stone wall, through which Carthage could find no open- ings. All three of the Millikin touchdowns were direct products of passes over the goal line. The first came after Davis had inter- cepted a pass on his own forty yard line, and France, Heidinger and Vise had put the ball on the sixteen yard line. A pass. Vise to Miller, was good, and another. Vise to McGuire, yielded the extra point. Fol- lowing an eighty yard march down the field, featured by long gains by France, Corbett threw a twenty yard pass to Miller to add another six points to the Millikin total. In the final cjuarter Musso blocked a Carthage punt. Fawley recovered, and Vise passed to Davis to end the scoring. Said Captain Vise afterwards, " Just a ' passing ' game " . FIFTY-FOUR MILLION, 0; WABASH, 6 Coach Johnson ' s bugbear — ineligibility — that was to worry him all season began to bite just before the Wabash game. The " Little Giants " , seeking revenge for a twenty-six to six lacing last year, faced a weakened team, due largely to a new L75 eligibility rule. The weakened " Blue " lacked punch when opportunities loomed, and although in a scoring position time af- ter time, Millikin backs were unable to cross the goal line. The lone Wabash touchdown came late in the first quarter after a par- tially-blocked Millikin punt. Collins blocked the try for extra point. Playing frantically in the frnal seconds, a fifty yard pass from Musso to Miller missed by inches, and the Blue was held scoreless for the first time in forty games. Millikin ' s superiority was manifested by the fact that it gained one hundred and seventy-seven yards from scrimmage to one hundred forty-four for its opponent, and made nine first downs to six for the Giants. MILLIKIN, 7; BRADLEY, 14 In a non-conference " practice " tilt, the Tech men gained their first decision over Millikin in four years. Assured that the game did not count in conference standing, Johnson gave Corbett, Davis and Miller a Harrell Davis Musso rest period. In spite of the absence of these three aces, the revamped Hneup made sev- enteen first downs to Bradley ' s eight. Two blocked punts accounted for both of Brad- ley ' s scores. Captain Vise counted the lone marker for the Blue. Heidinger. Devers and France in the backfield, and Fawley, Rollins and Collins in the line, each turned in an extra-good day ' s work to Boss Leo. MILLIKIN, 45; ILLINOIS COLLEGE, 0 Playing before more than three thou- sand happy homecomers, the fighting Blue balanced accounts for last year ' s six to two defeat by Illinois College that robbed them of three championships in a row. Millikin ' s line had power and punch to spare as only once did Illinois College threaten in the first c|uarter when they carried the ball to the Millikin twenty-five yard line. Corbett and France led the parade of seven touchdowns for his side-show, while Corbett, scoring two markers, proved that he is not only a clever runner but one of the hardest-hitting backs in the state. Captain Vise and Devers each scored a touchdown, while the work of Fawley, Tarro and Pechar stood out in the line. MILLIKIN, 14; WESLEYAN, 7 In the most bitterly-fought game of the season, Millikin ' s Big Blue once more tri- umphed over Wesleyan. Alertness that led to the recovery of six Titan fumbles and two blocked punts proved the deciding fac- tor in the fourteen to seven victory. In the first c|uarter, McGuire intercepted a Titan lateral on the thirty-two yard line. A penalty and four tries by Corbett sent the ball to the one yard line, from where Heidinger FIFTY-SIX knifed through. Millikin ' s winning touch- down followed in the fourth period. After Bodman had run seventy-seven yards in the third period to tie the score, on a blocked punt by Miller and Heidinger, the Blue then drove thirty yards to the Titan goal with Corbett propelling himself over. A cjuick pass to Vise netted first clown on the one yard line when it looked as if Millikin would be held to downs. Corbett returned to old form for this game. It was Millikin ' s sixteenth win in twenty-six games of Wes- leyan rivalry. MILLIKIN, 12; BRADLEY, 6 With a conference championship hang- ing in the balance, Millikin ' s royal Blue rose to the occasion and for the second time in three years the Little Nineteen title came home to rest on the Millikin campus. The Blue outplayed Bradley decisively until the closing minutes of the game, when a bril- liant passing attack threatened the narrow lead. Millikin gained two hundred and twenty-five yards from scrimmage to one hundred and thirty-two for Bradley. Cor- bett alone accounted for one hundred eighteen yards, or almost as much as the en- tire Tech backfield. A recovered fumble turned into a thirty-eight yard run, and yielded Bradley its only touchdown before the game was five minutes old. Both of Millikin ' s markers came in the second quar- ter, Corbett scoring the first on a line smash, and Nefif recovering a punt blocked by Musso and Tarro for the second. Led by Musso, the Millikin line played bril- liantly, and Miller, Tarro, Fawley, Rollins and Pechar were in every play. I Miller McGuire Rollins FIFTY-SEVEN And so concludes another championship season for the blue football squad under the tutelage of " Leo " Johnson and " Hank " Gill. Although Carbondale and Mt. Morris both finished their respective seasons with clean slates the qua lity of their competition was not comparable to the superior teams that Millikin played. Consequently, neither Carbondale nor Mt. Morris are regarded by sports followers and newspaper writers as contenders for the title. When rated by the Dickinson system, which gives credit for a game won proportionately to the strength of the team played, Millikin was in first place by a considerable margin. That the Blue possessed a formidable array of outstanding players is shown by the number that were chosen by newspaper writers on their " mythical " All State teams. Both Corbett and Musso were on every first team chosen, Corbett being named cap- tain. Fawley and Vise were elected to the second teams, Vise receiving the captaincy. Honorable mention was given to Miller, McGuire, Rollins, Pechar, Tarro, France, and Heidinger. That recognition of George Corbett ' s all around play is not confined to local circles is evidenced by the fact that he was given honorable mention on Lib- erty ' s All American selections — an honor never before conferred upon a Millikin athlete. When Captain George Corbett leads his blue and white grid artists out for action next year, prospects for another champion- ship will be exceedingly bright as Captain " Stan " Vise and Jimmy Pechar are the only members of this year ' s team lost by graduation. Our eves are on vou, " Georgie " !

But such a story does not give the team the praise that it deserves. Playing nineteen games in all, the Blue won twelve and lost seven; eight of the victories were at the expense of Little Nineteen opponents, while five of the losses came from the same source. This record is no true indica- tion of the real story — that the team played through the most thrilling and successful season in recent years. The majority of the victories were stolen in the last few minutes from the leading teams of the conference. This outfit was one that looked mediocre at best many times ; yet there was obviously a reservoir of hidden power and brilliance which emerged triumphantly when put to the real test. Here was a team that had the essential drive and will to win. By trouncing North Central, Millikin kept the Naperville school from continuing on its smooth path toward the conference championship and provided one of the outstanding upsets of the year; St. Viator, unbeaten three weeks from the end of its schedule, was started on its rapid de- 0 A. , I Smith Steinhauer Musso NINETY-THREE cline by the boys in blue, who doubled the score on the Irish. Earlier in the year Millikin had cut any strings that Wesleyan and Bradley may have thought they had on the I. I. A. C. trophy, these four games alone proving that a place must be reserved for J. M. U. among the leaders, re- gardless of percentage standings. Maloye " Red " Holmes and Charlie Smith, the two smallest men on the squad, consistently led the Blue scoring machine, closely followed in high-point honors by ' ellman France and Cap- tain John Merkelback. George Musso, the huge guard, was almost infallible, and made it his per- sonal duty to be a whole defensive wall all by himself, although the man-to-man defense worked well and made George ' s task easier. Musso played more minutes than any other man on the team. Musso, Merkelback, Holmes and France took part in every game on the schedule and usually were in each starting lineup. Millikin played three inter-state games and compared favorably with the opposition offered by each school. The first of the three games was lost by three points — to North Dakota State — but the same margin was a margin of superiority over the Arkansas Aggies and Rose Poly. In NINETY-FOUR other non-conference engagements Millikin took two decisions from the fast Sparks quintet, and pressed Loyola hard but lost, 26 to 19. The highlights of the conference season in- cluded the 31 to 29 win over Bradley, when France was sent in to relieve Musso at guard and broke through the Crimson defense for fifteen points; the 16 to 15 thriller that Holmes stole from Illinois Wesleyan by sinking the ball from the center of the floor in the last twenty seconds; the 34 to 18 drubbing handed to St. Viator, and the 25 to 19 victory over the North Central aggregation. Fifteen men made up Millikin ' s 1930-31 squad, eight of whom won letters. The fifteen were Gene Woods, guard ; Al Miller, guard ; George Musso, guard; Ralph Smith, guard; Al- lan Russell, guard; John Harrell, guard; and Edward Davis, guard; Wellman France, center; Ray Nef¥, center ; Omar Ward, center ; Captain John Merkelback, forward; Charlie Smith, for- ward ; Maloye Holmes, forward ; Maurice Stein- hauer, forward ; and James Foulk, forward. The eight lettermen. Woods, Miller, Musso, France, Merkelback, C. Smith, Holmes and Steinhauer, were banqueted on March 3 and elected France and Woods as co-captains for the coming year. 1 Faulk Merkelback Russell NINF.TY-SIX The complete table of points scored by each player is given below : G.

All together, there were six teams entered in the tournament, repre- senting the five campus fraternities and the independents. Kappa Delta Chi, by establishing an early lead in the first two major sports — basketball and track — easily coasted through to first place in the total standings. They were awarded a handsome plaque as a permanent trophy, in place of the large cup which became a permanent possession of Sigma Alpha Epsilon in 1929. Led by Pugsley, Vise and Perkins, the K. D. basketball team emerged with a clean slate to win ; John Norman seemed to be a complete track team all by himself, winning everything offered from the dashes to the mile run; Julie Resh also accounted for a large number of points through his pitching in indoor base- ball and by teaming with Frank Griswold to beat out the S. A. E. golf entry. Tau Kappa Epsilon earned second place in the race chiefly through the efforts of John Wells and Jack Uhlenhoop. Points were awarded on the following scale: in a major sport, four for entering which were included in points for placing in any but last position, fourteen for first, ten for second, eight for third, and five for fourth ; in a minor sport, three for entering, eight for winning, six for second, five for third, and four for fourth.

This year our women ' s athletic director has made it possible for the girls to get recognition for the different athletic events. Miss Corder presented letters to eleven women as recognition of superior ability in hockey. They were : Virginia Bigler, Kathleen Kinnaman, Grace Wil- liams, Norma Smith, Helen Marshall, Pauline Hallford, Edith Tschudy, Frances Wilson, Annamary Dickey, Ellen Melrose, and Ula Davis. These women form what is known as the first Millikin women ' s " M " Club. Last year and this year for the first time Miss Corder has held a basketball free throw contest. The winner must sink the most free throws from the foul line out of fifty tries. Gwendolyn Burgess won first prize and was presented a silver basketball on a standard. Grace Watson came in for second prize, which was a small silver ball to be worn on a chain. The contest this year has not yet been completed. In the class work the director more or less turns the place into what she calls her human laboratory. There the girls experiment with their physical ability — learn to do a number of things that they could never learn other places, learn what exercises and what training will benefit their particular cases the most. They learn what their weights and proportionate girths should be, and what exercises to strengthen and reduce the particular parts that are over or below normal. Each girl undergoes a physical examination and all her measurements are taken. From them is selected the average girl. To Miss Frances Sever goes the honor of being the girl who measures most closely to Millikin ' s mythical average woman. Miss Sever is one of the most proportionately built women in school. The annual Freshman-Sophomore hockey scrap was played on the athletic field as a part of the Homecoming contest. It was preceded by weeks of daily drill on technique and team work under the direction of Coach Corder. The Sophomores wore slip-over sweaters and hose of Millikin blue. The Freshmen flaunted green tams and hose. Captain Davis and Grohne scored three goals for the Sophomores, which won them the victory, 3-1. This same team was the winner of the 1929 scrap. As the basketball tourney had not been completed at the time the photographer made his visit, an all star team was selected from those represented in the Mil- likin women ' s intramural tournament. The tournament was won by the Independent Girls, who were undefeated. Marjorie Leischner was high point forward for the Indees ; her keen eye for the basket brought her a total of 89 points in five games. The other members of the championship team were Virginia Bigler, center; Frances Sever and Helen Marshall, forwards; Ruth Haas, Viola Ruestman, and Dorothea Sanner, guards ; Olivia Fischer and Joanna Marshall, substitutes; and Ula Davis, manager.

Moreover, it provides for the study of music as a means of culture and appreciation as well as an accomplishment. The Conservatory has two splendid auditoriums, Kaeuper Hall used for student recitals when the audience is not expected to exceed 200, and Millikin University Auditorium, used for faculty recitals and concerts of the artists ' course, when larger audiences must be accommodated. The Professional Department is designed especially for those students who have the desire and sufficient talent to become successful public performers. Concert companies of varying descriptions are arranged which cover nearly the entire state in a five to seven weeks trip. The Male Quartet, consisting of John Norman, first tenor, Marion, Illinois; Dewitt Mancell, second tenor. Bunker Hill, Illinois; Carl Kruger, baritone, Sum- merfield, Illinois ; and Harold Orvis, bass. Hillsboro, Illinois ; was organized last year. The quartet has made various trips to the southern and eastern parts of the state. The Mixed Quartet consists of Annamary Dickey, soprano, Decatur, Illinois ; Kathryn Baumann, alto, Springfield, Illinois; Edgar Laughlin, tenor, Decatur, Illinois; and H. Stuart Gebhart, Jr., bass, Decatur. This quartet was organized in the fall, and made its initial performance with " Cavalleria Rusticana " , singing the song cycle of " The Persian Gardens " . Since that time they have been much in demand. They have made trips to the northern and western parts of the state. In addition to these vocal groups there is also the String Quartet that has made many appearances in and around Decatur. Eleanor Cobb, first violin ; Madelyn Pygman, second violin; Ruth Cobb, cello; and Mary Heideman, viola, make up the personnel. These performers have played together s ' nce early fa ' l and ha e attained a very fine degree of ensemble work ' . ONE HUNDRED FOUIJ SCHOOL OF DANCING ACAPELLA CHOIR A new feature brought out the second semester by the music school is the Acapella Choir directed by Professor Grant Hadley. This is the first time such an organization has been offered and it should show interesting results. Mr. Hadley has been working on comparatively easy acapella music in order to get the voices stabilized. He expresses a belief that the choir will be able to do some very line work, especially because of the fine cjuality of voices and talent shown in the membership. Most of the singers have taken an active part in the musical productions of the school, some of them having leading parts. The choir is an added feature of the chapel programs, assisting with the assembly singing and ofifering a few special numbers each time. W e hope it will become a permanent organization. It can ' t but thrive under Mr. Hadley ' s direction. SCHOOL OF DANCING Department of Physical Training and Dancing has been arranged with great care and is especially designed for developing harmony of movement, gi ' ace, power and health. Grace and charm are the attributes of proper dancing. The classes are an education for the mind in memory concentration and coordination. They are the basis and the concomitant of musical education because the elements of the dance are precisely the elements of musical structure. Annette Van Dyke, the dancing instructor, has had training and experience under some of the most famous dancing artists in the world : Tarasoif " , Diana Watts, Alberticia Rasch, Jack Blue, and others. She has had special work in London and Paris and had one season with Chicago Grand Opera Ballet. The Spring Revue, April 23, 24, 25, was a real exhibition of her ability as a teacher and producer. Over 100 children and young people took part. Of course, a lot of Miss Van Dyke ' s pupils are high school and grade school chil- dren, but Millikin University was well represented. Aubrey Royce and Madelyn Pygman both did a specialty number. A male quartet of John Norman, Robert Noland, Earl Druger, and Harold Orvis sang some snappy songs. Annamary Dickey and John Norman were featured with a duet and waltz. Besides these were the entire ballet and eurythmic classes made up of university girls. The show was colorful and tuneful, one of the best Miss Van Dyke has ever staged. ONE HUNDRED FIVE CAVALLERIA RUSTICANA The Millikin Conservatory Grand Opera Group presented this one act opera by Mascagni, December 12, 1930. It was preceded by a charming song cycle, " In a Persian Garden " , given by the Millikin Conservatory Quartette in which Annamary Dickey was soprano, Kathryn Bauman, contralto, Edgar Laughlin, tenor, H. Stewart Gebhart Jr., bass, and Eloise McKee, accompanist. The opera, which is a tragedy, was quite an unusual treat for the audience and was well appreciated by Decatur music-lovers. Mrs. Grant Hadley as San- tuzza, a Sicilian village girl, and Mr. Bluford Richardson as Turiddu, a young soldier, took the difficult leading roles. Minor parts were played by Mrs. A. A. Mertz as Lucia, mother of Turiddu, Clarence Deakins, as Alfio, a teamster, and Aubrey Royce as Lola, wife of Alfio. The chorus, composed mostly of Millikin students, entered wholeheartedly into the spirit of the opera and gave the sem- blance of the happy-go-lucky peasantry of Sicily. The intricacies of the score were beautifully played by the orchestra, which was trained by Mr. Harold C. Hess. Mr. Rupel Jones executed the scenery and lighting effects, while the art work was done by Mrs. Esther Gard Rhodes. The libretto of this orchestra is based on a Sicilian tale by Verga. The action takes place on Easter Sunday. Turiddu, a young peasant returning from military service, has found Lola, his former sweetheart, married to Alfio. He has consoled himself with Santuzza, another peasant girl, although he is still infatuated with Lola. Both girls love Turiddu, Santuzza seriously and Lola co- quettishly, and the latter resumed her affair with him clandestinely. Santuzza, who has been compromised, vainly begs Turiddu not to give her up for Lola. In jealous anger she tells Alfio of the relations of Turiddu and Lola and the outraged husband vows vengeance. LTpon Turiddu ' s reappearance, Alfio insults him and they arrange for an immediate duel. Santuzza, fearing the consequence of her betrayal of the lovers, tries to prevent the combat without avail, and Turiddu is slain. The opera was so well received that it was given later in Springfield, and also again at Millikin for the benefit of those who missed seeing it before.

LE CERCLE FRANCAIS OFFICERS President Kathryn Reinhart Vice-president -.. Margaret Powers Secretary ....Aubrey RoycE Treasurer. L,enorE Chodat Le Cercle Francais has had a series of interesting meetings this year. All of the meetings are conducted entirely in French . At the Chistmas meeting Jess Wagus told the members of the club about the Christmas customs in France. The spring meeting was held in the French seminar. This meeting was held in an informal manner and Miss Blackburn served tea and wafers to those who attended. At this time it was decided that Le Cercle Francais would sponsor a French and German movie to be brought here by the manager of the Lincoln Theater. It is not certain yet whether or not it will be possible to bring this picture here. This movie is an all French production. It was photographed in France, it has French scenery, and is written in the French language. French Club has twelve new members this vear.

ONE HUNDRED 1-oURTEEN GERMAN CLUB OFFICERS President. Marie Bauer Vice-president Secretary and Treasurer. ■Dorothy Wehrman Wallace Munsie The German Club is a newly organized group on the Millikin campus. It is a thriving group, nevertheless. The club was organized in 1930 with Miss Flora Ross as Faculty advisor. The club meets the first Wednesday of every month. The meetings are all conducted in German. It has sponsored programs on Ger- man music, science, games and literature. Altogether its first year has been a most successful one. ONE HUNDRED FIFTEEN HOME ECONOMICS CLUB OFFICERS President Kathleen Kinnaman Vice-president Seer eta r Virginia Larimer Hazee Swengel Treasurer Edith Tschudy The club is made up of girls who are enrolled in the School of Household Arts, and any other girl who is interested in foods or clothing. The club meets once a month and has enjoyed a number of interesting meetings this year. Miss Drysdale, dietetian from the Macon County Hospital, gave an interesting dis- cussion on dietetics, and Linn and Scruggs sent a display of ladies ' winter ap- parel to one meeting. The club met one evening in December and made oil cloth animals for the Christmas store. A delegate was sent to the Home Economics Convention at East St. Louis. ONE HUNDRED SIXTEEN Y. W. C. A. OFFICERS President Katherine Walker Vice-president Secretary Lucille Wilson Helen Hill Treasurer Cornelia Casey Undergraduate Representative. MarjoriE DoolEn Y. W. C. A. opened the year 1930 with a Cabinet Retreat at the Mill ' s cottage on Lake Decatur, the first of September. The " Little and Big Sister Week " is perhaps one of the most important functions of Y. W. The purpose of this is to make the new girls feel at home at Millikin. A gypsy pow-wow, a banquet and a reception-dance were sponsored the first week in the year for the new girls. Y. W. has accomplished a great deal this year under the able leadership of Miss Walker. Things they have done or sponsored are ( 1 ) representative sent to Detroit to National Student and Faculty Conference, (2) Paul Harris, from National Council of Prevention of War, who spoke on " Prevention of War " in chapel, (3) organization of advisory board composed of two faculty wives, one faculty woman and two out of town women, (4) M. Cuadra, a Filipino, who spoke of his native country, (5) Florence Pierce, student of Y. W. in China, (6) Easter sunrise service, (7) regular membership drive, (8) tag day. ONE HUNDRED SEVENTEEN PAN HELLENIC OFFICERS President Dorothy Meyers Vice-president Treasurer Dorothy Klvnder Kathryn Rein hart Social CJiainiian Pauline Hallford The principle of Pan Hellenic is, " To maintain on a high plane fraternity life and inter-fraternity relationship ; to cooperate with college authorities in their efforts to maintain high social and scholastic standards throughout the whole college, and to be a forum for the discussion of questions of interest to the col- lege and fraternity world. " Pan Hellenic is composed of two members from each sorority on the campus. They make and enforce all the rushing rules. Every spring a scholarship dinner is given by Pan Hellenic, honoring the girls who have made the highest averages. ONE HUNDRED EIGHTEEN Band Parade BAND -ORCHESTRA CONCERT February 26 and 27, the band made a grand effort to procure for themselves uniforms in which they could blow their Alma Mater to victory. For the past year the members of the band have felt unworthy to represent their school on the field. A few interested souls enlisted the aid of the university orchestra to help them put on a program for the public, the proceeds of which were to be used as wherewithall to purchase uniforms. To make their need seem even more urgent, the band members donned their most disreputable and incongruous wearing apparel, and made a pilgrimage through the business district of De- catur in order that there be no doubt as to the greatness of their necessity. On Thursday evening, February 26, and Friday evening, February 27, the members of the two organizations put on their most beautiful evening clothes and appeared before an appreciative audience in a very fine program. Though most of the program was ensemble work, a few soloists were secured. The Mil- likin String Quartet gave a group of three numbers. A violin quartet including Ruth Gregory, Earl Duffey, Eleanor Cobb and Mary Heideman played a very lovely number. Eleanor Cobb and Mary Heideman each played a violin solo accompanied by the orchestra, and Annamary Dickey sang " The Kiss " Waltz " , accompanied by the orchestra. These three girls are all Seniors and members of Sigma Alpha Iota, national musical sorority. In spite of the fine audiences each evening, the required amount was not obtained. However, the sympathies of Adolph Mueller were aroused to the extent that he is sponsoring an outdoor concert to be given in his Little Theatre some time in May. Whatever sum is still lacking after this concert Mr. Mueller will donate. ONE HUNDRED NINETEEN THE TOWN AND GOWN PLAYERS Early in the fall of 1930 a group of persons met in Kaeuper Hall for the purpose of forming Town and Gown Players group. They came at the in- vitation of Professor Rupel J. Jones. Miss Janice Meredith, Miss Davida Mc- Caslin. and Miss Winnifred Minturn. Since that time the group has grown and has produced three interesting- plays, in which both students and townspeople have taken part. Their first play was the Homecoming play. The next was a tragedy, " Children of the Moon " , presented on March 13. " R. U. R. " , a difficult and intriguing piece, given on Mav 15, concluded the Town and Gown Players ' presentations for the season of 1930-31. The organization of this group was a daring enterprise, but the Decatur play- goers have shown their hearty appreciation of its work. They have expressed their desire that such productions continue next season in the interest of better drama for Decatur audiences. ONE-ACT PLAYS An appreciative audience enjoyed the three one-act plays produced by Pro- fessor Rupel Jones ' play production class Friday, December 5. 1930. " Tickless Time " , the first play, given under the direction of Miss Marian Suleeba, concerned the adoption of truth by a young couple who were idealists. Truth was exemplified to them in their selection of the sundial as the only true method of computing time. The ensuing complications between their time and the time of the work-a-day world formed the basis of the plot. The second play, " Where But in America? " , was built around the jealousy of a modern couple for their maid, whom they humor and spoil. She turns out to be a partner in a prosperous building firm and the fiancee of a college graduate. This play was directed by Miss Miriam Martin. Miss Dorothy Schinoski chose as her vehicle a tragedy, " Where the Cross Is Made " . It depicts the almost purely subjective reactions of a man going insane. This was the most difficult and ably handled piece of the evening. " THE LAND OF HEARTS " Wednesday, February 11, 1931, was an appropriate date for the Workshop Players of Millikin Conservatory to present " The Land of Hearts " . It is a delightful story of how a Beautiful Lady, Lois Sayre, desired to become Queen in the Land of Hearts. To prove her domestic qualities she was commanded 1) - the King, Kathryn Bauman, to bake some tarts in a specified length of time. Her tarts were a failure, but the Knave, Aubrey Royce, saved the situation by stealing his wife ' s and bringing them to the palace for the Beautiful Lady to present to the King as her own. They were so very delicious that the Beau- tiful Lady became the Queen of the Land of Hearts and the Knave composed the well-known rhyme to commemorate the day. Miss Annette Van Dyke coached the dancing and Miss Janice Meredith directed the play. ONE HUNDRED TWENTY HOMECOMING PLAY In their initial appearance before Decatur playgoers, the Town and Gown Players stirprised and pleased the Millikin Homecoming audience on the e -ening of November 7, 1930. So deftly combined was the humor, sus- pense and surprise of " The Queen ' s Husband " , that this three-act play was named the best performance given so far in the annals of Millikin dramatics. The cast had been chosen with great care from among the students and townspeople by Professor Rupel J. Jones. He directed the play and was assisted by Miss Janice Meredith. The most difficult character was that of the King. This part, taken by R. C. Fox, was handled with great feeling and success. The King had to be subservient to the Queen and to General Northrup, who diametrically opposed each other in everything. Miss Marian Wait injected majesty into her part as the overbearing, forceful and businesslike Queen, who thought she had to finance the tottering throne by selling her hand-shake to rich Americans. General Northrup, ably portrayed by Arthur Metzler, controlled Par- liament, and wished to control the government and the people by force. He might have succeeded had it not been for the King. Miss Virginia Henebry as the Princess and John Norman as Cranton, the King ' s secretary, supplied the romantic interest admirably. When the Queen would have married the Princess to a strange foreign Prince as a diplomatic alliance, the King saved his daughter and married her himself to the man she loved. Lynn Woolen, in the minor part of Lord Birten, an o ' erly suave states- man in the following of General Northrup, was outstanding. Robert Wood as Dr. Fellman, leader of the revolutionists, showed himself a likely radical college professor. The work of William Starr as Phipps, the head footman and the King ' s checker opponent, was appreciated. ONE HUNDRED TWENTY-ONE ' CHILDREN OF THE MOON " Called one of the best amateur dramatic performances Decatur has ever witnessed, the Town and Gown Players presented the tragedy, " Children of the Moon " , on Friday, March 13. The cast of eight, under the direction of Professor Rupel J. Jones and Miss Janice Meredith, succeeded in holding the audience tense as the weirdness of the piece caught and held its hearers. Outstanding among the cast was Mrs. Atherton, played by Lucille Ryman. In a difficult part, her lines were distinct and convincing as cruelly and selfishly she told her daughter, Jane, of the streak of madness in the Atherton family, because of which Jane could never marry. Tela Johnson acted the part of Jane, a charming young girl, just fallen in love with the aviator, Major Bannister, played by Henry Merriam. Jane listened to her mother, became emotionally upset, and wrote a note to the major, telling him she could not marry him. Madame Atherton, Jane ' s grandmother, played by VVilma Butler Kilgore in true grandmotherly fashion, tried her best to prevent Jane ' s mother from ruining Jane ' s life, but to no avail. She was helped by Dr. Wetherell, the family physi- cian and friend. The doctor was played by William McDavid. who did a good piece of work. Robert Wait, as old Judge Atherton, who had spells of temporary forget- fulness and queer ideas about the moon, was also good. Two parts which gave the play its comedy relief were those of Thomas, the butler, and Walter Higgs, Major Bannister ' s cockney pilot. Richard Bennett, a high school student, played the butler remarkably well. Joseph Valentine was good as the mechanic. The play ended with Jane and her lover Hying away towards the moon through a thick fog, with destruction inevitable. The whirr of the plane ' s motor is heard as Mrs. Atherton repents too late, and cries out, " Jane, Jane, oh, my little girl ! " , and collapses. ONE HUNDRED TWENTY-TWO " R. U. R. " As the third and last presentation of the season, the Town and Gown Players presented R. U. R. (Rossum ' s Universal Robots) on Friday night, the 15th of May. It is a fantastic play, difficult, but well handled by the cast of characters under the direction of Professor Jones and Miss Meredith. Harry Domin is general manager of the factory of Rossum ' s Universal Robots, located on an isolated isle. To his office comes Helena Glory, the daugh- ter of the president of the company, intent upon liberating all robots, whom she believes to be human beings enslaved. Domin is instantly infatuated with her, and in the course of their conversation he tells her of the origin of the robot. The elder Rossum, a mad scientist, experimented with protoplasm for years. After many failures he evolved the formula of living protoplasm from his test tubes. His son, an engineer, completed his father ' s work by creating a worker with the minimum number of requirements and no soul. Since then robots had been manufactured and had speedily replaced all cheap labor in the world. Dr. Gace, Mr. Fabry, Dr. Hallemaier, Mr. Alquist and Consul Busman, together with Harry Domin, manage the factory. They meet Miss Glory and convince her that it is impossible to humanize a robot. All fall in love with her, but Harry Domin proposes first and is accepted. Ten years later tinds Helena Glory and Harry Domin happily married. Helena ' s maid. Nana, a God-fearing old soul, is continually complaining against the household robots and considers the use of robots sinful. It is the tenth anni- versary of Helena ' s arrival on the island. The other men have each brought her an anniversary present. Domin tells Helena his present to her is an armored ship, the " Ultimus " . She does not know that the robots of the world have re- volted against man and control all the firearms and means of communication. However, she has read in old newspapers of frightful wars between man and robot in which man is being overwhelmed. Dr. Gace tells her that there are so many robots on the earth now that man has become superfluous and the human race is dying out. Helena steals the one existing formula for the manufacture of robots and destroys it. She hopes by this to cease the making of robots and thus to per- petuate the human race. Helena and the men assemble in her drawing room where news is brought them that the robots, who outnumber the humans 1.000 to one, have mobbed the island, taken the " Ultimus " and are waiting to kill all the people left on the island. Suddenly they hear the factory whistle blow and recognize it as the signal for the robot attack. Mr. Fabry runs an electric wire around the garden fence in hopes of electrocuting anyone who attempts to climb it. Busman pro- poses to buy the robots with the secret of their manufacture as a bribe for escape on the " Ultimus " . ' hen Helena tells them she has burnt it, thev realize their last chance of escape is gone. The robots attack, and all are killed save Mr. Alquist. EPILOGUE In a laboratory in the factory of Rossum ' s Universal Robots, Dr. Alquist, now an old man, labors over test tube and manuscript trving to rediscover the secret of creation of life. He has failed but is repeatedly commanded by the robots to find the formula in order that more robots may be made. Primus and Helena, two young robots, enter the laboratory. Helena is recruited by Mr. Alquist to be dissected in an experiment. Primus objects and says he will die in her place. Thus, after much arguing, Mr. Alquist discovers that these two robots have souls and emotions and will become the progenitors of a new human race. ONE HUNDRED TWENTY-THREE WRITHE AND FALL OF STRANGLER LEWIS or THE BRIDEGROOM PLUMBER FORGOT HIS WENCH " Friends, " he began, in a naval tone (at which the girls blushed prettily), " I ' m glad to see that twenty of you have shamed yourselves into coming to chapel this morning; attendance is growing — boresome, it seems, or irregular at least. Perhaps we should invent some form of entertainment to lure you in here — radio, why don ' t I suggest? But radio was first invented by Macaroni, against whom I am prejudiced because of my arteries. Like raw macaroni, they are decidedly unpleasant when it rains, besides being stifif and unwieldy whether it rains or not — a great inconvenience for a romper and begoozled fuddler as I. Yessuh, nize beby, youall said a goodol ' mothful, indade b ' gorry, an ' I don ' t calc ' late ye ' ll be agrettin ' it neither, either. " Which reminds me of a story about an iceman that I have been telling for the last five years to everyone that would listen ; I would tell it now except that it might stimulate trade. The Frigidaire people have made me an of¥er — . " And so, we enter the Reconstruction Period, from 1100 B. C. to the day the Blue Mill installed the slot machine. Ah, what a day that was for the Steel Trust, and the starving Armenians of Gutterbut ! ! I was a mere youghling at the time but the event is firmly retched on my memory, and on my grey suit, too. " Three years later, in 1879, I was born in Flubuckett, Turkey — a prettier baby you never seen. The fact that I was born later in South Carolina (1897) is not important. That was to confuse news photographers and souvenir hunters. Mother was pretty baffled. " Hawkes, " she said, " what is the sense in this being born two, or maybe three times? You should be satisfied with being born once, like most people. " She misunderstood me, she thought I was an ordinary people; I was not, I was an extraordinary people, but I was too young to realize. One night, when my father came home a drunkard, I thought I would not be able to stand it. The next night he came home a fireman, and the next a policeman — we never knew what to expect, and it became very amusing. " To- night, " Mother would say, " he will come home an engineer, " and I would venture he would come home a sailor, or tailor, for mine was always a poet ' s mind. One dreary night, as black as tar — Sam Jones was the tar — he came home dead. What a time Mother and I had guessing ! She guessed " Nabisco wafers " , and I suggested " Dean O ' Hara, " but Father would not reply; he seemed to have something on his mind, which we thought strange — but hardly enough to occasion worry, because it had happened once before in the early ' 70s, just after Father had got his foot caught in the gold rush to Alaska and collected thirty dollars in bribes before he could get loose. " Hoax, " she said to me, " remember that your Father died with a clean heart, a clean mind, clean hands — . " " Dirty feet, " I suggested, but she silenced me. " Cleanliness was good enough for your Pappy, it ' s good enough for you, " he thundered and shook his first until it rattled ; he shook me until I rattled, shook Mother until she rattled; the windows rattled without being shook. " Stop that damned rattling, " he shouted, becoming a little rattled ; they were the first words he had spoken in three years, and we did not recognize them. He made a dia- gram ; the Diagrams moved out of the neighborhood shortly after and we buried Father with fifty honors — in one hand, (mind you!) The speaker drove home his final point — he came back later and drove home the Dean of Women. There was a good deal of talk. Alumni ' s Neil. ONE HUNDRED TWENTY-FOUR ONE HUNDRED TWENTY-SEVEN w H O w II o ONE HUNDRED TWENTY-NINE 77ie following are the three most beautiful tvomen of Millikin, placed in the order of their choice. The nominations tvere made by the stu- dents, and final judgment ivas given by Mr. Ernest Roehlk, a ivell known artist of Chicago, Illinois. Mr. Roehlk also chose W illiam Ballinger as Mil- likin ' s most handsome man. Carolyn Starck ONE HUNDRED THIRTY-ONE Elizabeth McGowan ONE HUNDRED THIHTY-THREE William Ballinger ONE HUNDRED THIRTY-FOUR James Dunning Most Representative Senior Man (Selected by student vote) ONE HUNDRI ' Ii THIRTY-SIX SOPHOMORE COTILLION Miss Dorothy Knauss was chairman of the affair, acting under the authority of the class president, Harry Hood. Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Gill and Miss Bonnie Blackburn favored the Sophomores with their presence — acting as chaperons. The gay crowd swayed to and fro, underneath a carnival atmosphere, to the enchanting strains of sweet blues music produced by Dale Miller ' s Orchestra of Bloomington, Illinois. It was indeed a peppy dance and the informality of the dance was one of the reasons that made it one of the outstanding dances of the school vear. JUNIOR PROM The King of Mirth and Gaiety ruled beneath the blue midnight skies of the Decatur Country Club on the occasion of the annual Junior Prom — that being- April 10. More than seventy-five couples glided, hopped and swayed amid the ornate surroundings to Morrie Craig ' s Victor Recording Orchestra. There was an impressive promenade led by the class president, William Ballinger, and Miss Jane Hoover of the University of Wisconsin. The evening became more gay as the hour became later. It was indeed one of the best of all university social func- tions. SENIOR BALL A happy climax for the annual social functions was the Senior Ball. The event was held at the Decatur Club on the night of April 24. It was a joyous crowd that came to the club that night and danced to the music that beat in syncopation from mirror to mirror along the rose tinted walls. Between dances, there was heard the rustling of silk and satin and the loquaciousness of men and women as they moved to and fro from ballroom to lounge. It wasn ' t long before the evening had ended and while the guests were claiming their wraps, they talked of the ball and classed it as one of the most memorable occasions at Millikin. ONE HUNDRED THIRTY-SEVEN ONK HUNUUlvI) THIUTY-EIGHT p R I N S P o R T 1 ONE HUNDRED THIRTY-NINE BASEBALL, 1930 The Blue was just as hard to beat on the diamond as it was on the grid- iron, losing only two conference games during the season and finishing second in the Little Nineteen Conference standing. Playing sixteen games, Millikin won twelve and lost four, half the games being conference battles. A total of six conference victories against the pair of los ses put J. M. U. well up in the first division. The results of the annual training trip to Jonesboro, Arkansas, were indicative of the season that Leo ' s boys were to have. Challenging the Arkansas Aggies to a five game series, Millikin won four of the encounters by wide margins and tied the other, 1 to L The Blue was less fortunate in its next series. This time playing Con- cordia, it lost both games without giving the Missourians much opposition. However, this was only a temporary let-down. The next game was against St. Viator and was won 3 to L Four more victories followed rapidly — Wabash, 4 to 1 ; Illinois College, 4 to 0; Wabash again, 8 to 4; and Wesleyan, 9 to 0. Charleston interrupted the winning streak, winning 5 to L but the Blue immediately started another, this time downing Illinois College and Wesleyan in return games, and getting even with Charleston, 21 to 2. Captain Gidcomb led the Blue ' s hitting attack during the entire season, and was given valuable cooperation by Coulson, Andrews, Resh, Purcell, and Alfrev. Coulson and Gidcomb starred in the field, and Alfrey ' s pitching was always an attraction. Hankins also turned in some fine mound work. The squad consisted of Coulson, Smith, Andrews, Gidcomb, and Hankins, infielders ; Kirke, Resh, and Helm, outfielders; Tarro and Purcell, catchers; and Kennedy and Alfrey, pitchers. ONE HUNDRED FORTY 1930 TRACK TEAM Coach Wayne Gill ' s Blue and White " Thin Clads " came through a trying season with flying colors, and much promise for an unusually strong team for the coming year. Handicapped by the absence of Captain Randolph after the first meet of the season, and the loss of Wellman France, Gill ' s " all event " man, Millikin ' s track season still possessed its bright points. Starting brilliantly with an 81 to 49 triumph over Charleston Normal, the team was hampered in the second meet with Wesleyan by the absence of Turner, Randolph, Alderson and Harpstrite, and was consequently downed by the Green. The day was not without its compensations, however, as " Ted " Harpstrite, in competition with some of the best javelin tossers in the country at the Ohio Relays, fastened Millikin colors up in third place in that event. Strengthened by the return of these men. Captain Randolph led his squad to a fourth place position in the " Corn Belt " Meet held at Peoria the week following. The entire Millikin team did not attend the State Meet held at Bradley on May 23-24, but " Ted " Harpstrite again made track followers very much aware of Millikin ' s presence as he again won first place in the javelin throw, success- fully defending his record-breaking throw of 198 feet, 6j4 inches. Prospects are bright for the 1931 season as only Harpstrite and Tidwell will be lost to the squad, while " Hank " will have a veteran squad led by Captain- elect France, retiring Captain Randolph, Vise, Musso, Norman, Roberts, Henry, Corbett, Holmes, Miller and Merkelback to build his hopes around. ONE HUNDKED FORTY-ONE Earl Hankiiis lUil t.l r SWBIMING Led by Earl Hankins and Ray Harris, Seniors. Millikin ' s swimming team again received considerable notice at the Little Nineteen meet, as it had in former years. It returned from Bourbonnais with two trophies, one won b} ' each of these men. For the fourth consecutive year. Hankins took tirst place in the diving con- tests, receiving a gold medal, while Harris placed in the breast-stroke, coming home with another medal to put with the one that he received in the same race the year before. TENNIS The team, consisting of Gene oods. Cecil Riggs. allace lunsie. and Edwin Major, played several dual meets but made its best showing in the state tournament. ' oods. Sophomore letterman. paired with Riggs. and reached the semi-finals of the doubles tournament. ' GOLF The most salient characteristic of the 1930 golf season was the " improved play " , manifested in all phases of competition. From the play of Bill Starr in his strong contention for the Little Nineteen Conference championship, through the consistent driving and brilliant putting of Coach Leo Johnson to tie for second place in the State Faculty competition, to the exciting climax in intramural golf when Resh and Griswold, representing Kappa Delta Chi, barely eked out a two stroke win over Hood and ' hite from the Sig Alph house for the intra- mural championship, low scores were representative. ' ith Starr again to represent us in intercollegiate competition, Leo again as our Faculty representative, and the same strong intramural field almost intact, golf promises some exciting play at IMillikin this spring. ONE HrXDRKn rnKTV-TWO CALENDAR I ' m atvvit and agog! I ' m registered! My " big sister " came over to the Hall for me — and helped me a lot. She ' s a doll — her name is Carolyn Stark. Bud, my twin brother, doesn ' t think he ' ll like it here, but I do ! Tuesday, September 16 Upperclassmen registered today. I felt terribly in the way but they were so nice to me. I seem to have several " big sisters " . Mary Bourne is one — she is a babe — and Norma Smith says she ' s my " big sister " . They ' re all so nice. I suppose I should tell them I ' m not going to pledge anything. Wednesday, September 17 Classes started today — I feel so insignificant. I get lost between ever} ' class. But I met the sweetest boy ! — Jack Noel — he really is a blessing to us Freshman girls. He ' s busy constantly, showing us around. Thursday, September 18 Everyone ' s talking about Sarah Huston and Ralph Fowler getting married. They have kept it secret since May ! Tonight my " big sister " , Carolyn, took me to the Y. W. Banquet at the Westminster church. We had some music, a lovely meal, and some " Howdy, you ' re welcome at Millikin " speeches, and they almost made you feel as if you were. Friday, September 19 Bud has decided he likes it better. He has a date with Mary Edith Kable tonight — which probably is the reason. Bud has always had a weakness for blondes ! Buh-lieve me, they really find the things to do at this place. About 4:30 we started out on what they called a " walk out " . Then we stopped over in the park and had a wiener roast. If this keeps up all semester, I ' m afraid my grades will suft ' er. Monday, September 22 Millikin has gone Russian this week. Of all the parties planned! It ' s going to be a gala week, and no foolin ' ! Fleaven help the poor Freshmen. Today we donned the trailing chiffons, and took tea with Pan Hellenic, in the Conservatory. Tuesday, September 23 My roomie is just back from the Pi Phi open house tea, and says it was " lovely " . All in one breath she tells me it was all in black and white, that Catherine Doane was there, looking " stunning " , and she thinks Ruth Robertson is the " dearest " thing yet. Monday, September 15 ONE HUNIIRED FORTY-THREE Wednesday, September 24 Alpha Chi, Theta Gamma, and S. A. I. gave their " preferentials " today, Dorothy Klunder is so sweet, and one good reason why one should come to Millikin. She kept talking about some Sig Alph named " Lornie " today — I wonder if they go together? Thursday, September 25 Pi Phis. Tri Delts, and Zetas viewed the lowly Freshmen at " I prefer " parties today. I heard that the Tri Delts were cute — and " Bowery-ish " , and that the Pi Phis were " beachy " and that the Zetas were all peaches. My room mate is torn between all six sororities — she can ' t decide ! Friday, September 26 Well, the tale is almost told. Formal dinners to- night, put the finishing touches on this strenuous week. This rushing is a great life but it can ' t last forever ! Saturday, September 27 It ' s all over ! Formal pledging was this afternoon. Alicesnow Binney says she ' s gonna go home and sleep for a week ! Everyone seems glad it ' s over for another year. Monday, September 29 The tryouts for the Homecoming play were to- day. I tried out for every part possible but I know it ' s hopeless. Oh, well, maybe it would take too much time anyway. Tuesday, September 30 Class nominations were today. It was all over before I realized that the nominations were open. I do hope Marion Watts is Freshman president — he ' s so — pretty. I said that to Helen Powers and she said, " Pretty what? " Wednesday, October 1 They herded us into different rooms today — and we elected class officers. I just heard the returns from Bud. It seems that the Seniors have hailed Dick Cook as their chief, the Juniors have given the honor to Bill Ballinger (the lad with such nice brown eyes), and George Barr and Marion " atts carried off the honors for the Sophs and Freshmen. Line ' em all up and what do you have? — Sophistication Personified. Well, today I found out another tradition in the Institute. Every Thursday afternoon, somebody gives a tea. Ain ' t that sumpin? The Alpha Chis gave the one this afternoon, and I went with Edith Tschudy — bless her heart ! Guess what ! While we were there, I looks across the room, and there, there on two good feet stood God ' s gift to wimmin — if I ever saw it. ' ell, Edith comes to the rescue and introduced me to it — Walter King Guller. Friday, October 3 Big day, today! ' Smorning we had chapel, and Dr. Clippenger spoke, and it was real good. Tonight Cornell came over to our house to play football. Well- man France made the only touchdown of the game. I hear that outside of playing ONE HUNDRED FORTY-FOUR football, basketball, and track, France doesn ' t go in much for athletics. Anyway, after the game. Alpha Chi Omega gave a " mixer " in the gym. Wasn ' t that sweet? I danced with some darling boys — and some not quite so darling — " Olix " Miller, Alex Weiss, Frank Newton, Bud Bengson, and Gale Collins — oh, and Frank Shelby. I had a g-r-rand time ! Bud did, too. I think he ' s falling in love with three different girls, if that ' s possible — Mary Edith Kable, Mary Pauline Wag- goner, or Sally Eikenberry. So help ' im. Saturday, October 4 I had another heavenly time tonight at the Kappa Delt dance. I had a date with Jimmy Faulk — and he ' s a divine dancer! Sunday, October 5 The Tri-Delts had a tea for their new house mother today. She seems so sweet — they ' re lucky to have her. Tuesday, October 7 Well, we ' re " wearin ' o ' the green " now. ' Reeve Wallins looked cute as heck in her green beret, so I nearly broke a leg to get down and get me one. But no such luck for me — I ' ve spent half an hour in front of the mirror, and have finally decided to go bareheaded. Wednesday, October 8 Bud went to the Sig Alph smoker for the K. D. ' s tonight, and stopped in on his way home to see if Fd heard from home. (He ' s anxious for news of a financial nature in terms of a check. We ' re nearly broke.) Friday, October 10 I wondered why Stolle ' s was so crowded this morning. Well, I found out. Pi Beta Phi entertained the men of the school at a tea dance this afternoon — in shifts, of course — with the Sig Alphs last as a special favor. Tonight we played Carthage and Whiskey Vise and his boys chalked up another victory for the Big Blue. Hope we can keep up the good work. Saturday, October 11 I had a glorious time tonight at the Delta Sig dance. I went with Everett Tuggle but Fm afraid I really neglected him — I couldn ' t keep from looking at Shorty Kirk ' s gorgeous brown eyes — and at Marianne Barnes and her blond flash — they are so in love. Tuesday, October 14 Today there were green flags whipping in the breeze in difl erent places around school. I asked what they meant and Skeet Hallford said they were the first signs of the Freshman-Sophomore scrap. Thursday, October 16 I just had a frantic call from Bud. It seems the Tekes got big-hearted, and invited him to their dance Saturday. He ' s broke, but has a date with Ruth Roy and wants to put on the dog right. Well, I sorta like the blonde Alpha Chi so I loaned him half of all I have left. Gee, all I can see for us to do, is to pray for a check from home soon. ONE HUNDRED FORTY-FIVE Friday, October 17 Well, we bounced onto one of life ' s little jolts tonight. We had to let Wabash carry home a 6 to 0 win over us. After the game, Emil Bengson said he carefully analyzed the whole game and he could see only one little reason why Millikin didn ' t win. That reason being that they didn ' t carry the pigskin over the line enough. Clever, these Sig Alphs ! Saturday, October 18 I went to Champaign today — it was their homecoming. I nearly froze at the game, but it was exciting. 1 got back just in time to go to the Teke dance with Roy Scheske. I had a grand time, but Roy was so absent- minded and worried about something. He kept mumbling and counting to himself and I heard him say something about a " gentlemen ' s club meeting " but he wouldn ' t tell me about it. The Tekes are sweet little lads and if it weren ' t for that brute of a George Chaniot and that little Roy Rollins they wouldn ' t be so bad. Monday, October 20 All Millikin today mourned the loss of one Buck Schnierle. Poor Buck! Everybody hopes it ' s only au revoir, anyway. Wednesday, October 22 What does S. E. G. or 2 E r mean? And what is an " Umpel " ? The school is buzzing with these cjuestions. And their strange crest in the Cave at the Mill is intriguing, too. These girls who eat lunch at the Mill every day have too many secrets. Satvu-day, October 25 We all loaded into the Ford and bumped up to Bloomington today. Of all the football games that was the best. Homecoming — (for them) green an ' d white streamers, broadcasting, and speeches — and we took ' em down with the count. " Honey " Heidinger lost his shirt, but Leo taped him back together again, and no sooner in than over for a touchdown. Tonight, the Sig Alphs had a chance to show off that Ward cherub. They entertained in regular S. A. E. fashion. Somebody asked Casey if it was a nice dance. Says Casey, " Honey, ain ' t you never been to a Sig Alph dance? " Monday, October 27 This is blue Monday for me. I had too much week-end, I guess. A date with allace Muncie for the Sig Alph dance Saturday and dinner and a show with Ed Hargis yesterday. One can get too many thrills. Thursday, October 30 Thursday — which meant another tea — Pi Phi ' s this time, and ' twas a jack-o-lantern tea. Charlotte Conklin and Dorothy Knauss were there, aristocratin ' all over the place. Oh yes — Lenore Chodat, too — it was a lovely tea. ONE HUNDRED FORTY-SIX Friday, October 31 tonight dancer Br-r ! I ' m not thawed out yet. Somebody had a big idea that we go to Peoria to see the game. I nearly froze ! We let ' em have that game, ' cause it didn ' t count anyway. Wait ' U they come down our way ! Dominick Tarro let his " Irish " disposition almost get away with him, and he and Thorton of Bradley had a little side-line battle of their own. I didn ' t blame Nick ; I didn ' t like the looks of that bird, either. Saturday, November 1 S. A. I. ' s and Theta Gams gave the boys a break . Bud went with Annamary Dickey — , and swears now that she ' s the best on the campus. Well, maybe so, but I doubt it. The first ones at school this morning saw what Hallowe ' en bestowed upon Millikin — a new " special- ist " lab! ' Pag t m Ai ' s Nov 1 Tuesday, November 4 The actives " let out " the Freshmen tonight and the bloody hunt for Sophs was on. It was a real treat to see the ' 33 boys going to the " Corner " via back al- leys. I went to the Mill with Tela Johnson, and while she was telling me about her Maurey — in walks the Freshmen in full force. After they left, I looked under one of the tables and there, on all fours, was Stein- hauer, that curly-headed Sig Alph pledge — reported to be the champeen woman hater of the campus. Wednesday, November 5 Nov. 5 MEN W«0 KtX Miss Allin is in her seventh heaven ! All the " in- mates " and faculty went out behind the Engineering Hall and watched ' em turn the first shovel of ground for the new library. I hope they put upholstered chairs in it. Katherine Walker won ' t be able to get to many classes now until that building ' s done. Thursday, November 6 Homecoming decorations have started and the poor pledges are paying, paying, paying. They oughtta be glad at that. At least it ' s a change from waxing floors, cleaning rooms, sweeping walks, and so on. Friday, November 7 Homecoming ! Chapel first on the program. Then we sang a hymn, read some Scripture, prayed, and sang Millikin Loyalty. Horace McDavid gave us one of those " When-I-Was-in-School " talks and we left to watch the scrap. Paddles were crashing and cracking like nobody ' s business for awhile. Tonight, " The Queen ' s Husband " was given, and was grand. The lit- tle blonde Zeta pledge, Virginia Henebry, sorta cov- ered herself with glory, and John Norman will have to carry a club for awhile to protect himself from bold co- eds. Bob Cope looked too sweet in his white uniform ! ONE HUNDRED EORTY-SEVEN Saturday, November 8 Did we ever parade this A. M.? The Tri-Delts really crashed through! Patsy Kinnamon made the cutest cow-girl ! If she ever goes to the great open spaces, so help the native bronco busters! Back to the subject — the parade was really good ! An all-Millikin luncheon followed, but there seems to have been some trouble to decide whether it was held at the church, or the Mill. The game with Illinois College was just another star in our crown. The Homecoming dance put on the finishing touches (maybe in more than one respect). At times the " Look who ' s here ' s " and ' AA ell, old man, how you making it ' s? " , and " I haven ' t seen you since we got the sheepskins " almost drowned out the orchestra, but anyway it was a good dance, and I could stand ' em oftener. Sunday, November 9 Everyone is moaning today and making cracks such as " I don ' t see why our house didn ' t get the prize for decorations! " etc. The Sig Alphs say that next year they ' re not going to start theirs until the Alpha Chi ' s are finished. Wonder why? Monday, November 10 Everyone dragged around school today — half awake. Homecomings are too strenuous to happen often. And guess what? Eleanor Cote and ' Tke " Par- rish announced their marriage!! They were married the 29th of October! Tuesday, November 11 Armistice day! We had a big chapel and Dr. Boyer talked to us. I like that man. Seems to me that he really speaks a student ' s language. He makes his classes prick up their ears when he tells about being overseas. 1 love it ! Friday, November 14 Shindigs at the Alpha Chi and Zeta houses tonight, which means that they ' ve probably been having quite a few dates this week. Smart boys, these Millikin males ! Saturday, November 15 The Tri Delts offered their pledges for the approval of the collegians tonight. It was a good dance and I had a grand time. Sweetest little paddles with green ribbons on ' em for favors. It was sweet of them to invite me over. Monday, November 17 Pi Phis are having Probation Week for their initi- ates. The friends of Alice Stewart and INI ' Lisse Snyder say they certainly are enjoying the silence. Friday, November 21 The Conservatory presented a chapel program this morning. There ' s no doubt now whether or not Eleanor Cobb can play that violin she carries around all the time. Saturday, November 22 We showed ' em! I knew we would! Bradley had to go home looking down at their noses to the tune of 6 to 12. ONE HUNDRED FORTY-EIGHT Wednesday, November 26 Home for Thanksgiving! Gee! it will be the first time I ' ve been home since school started. V l have plenty to tell the home folks ! Bud and I are off on an early train. Monday, December 1 Back to the books for the next stretch! Oh, well, it isn ' t long until Christmas. And, after all, I ' m glad to get back, and that ' s no joke. Friday, December 5 Kappa Day chapjel today. Professor Mills spoke. S jmehow or other, that man has the habit of saying just the right thing at the right time. Wish I could get it. John Leighty, Ruth Long, Ellen Melrose, Lucille Mattes, and Charlotte Meyer all got keys. Gee! I wish I could get one when I ' m a Senior. Monday, December 8 My birthday today ! I feel so old and important. Bud took me out to dinner, and a show — bless ' im. It ' s his birthday, too, you see. Thursday, December 11 We had our first basketball game tonight, with the boys from Arkansas — and it looks good for the Blue, for we won somtehing like this, 27 to 24. I wonder if Johnn} ' Merkelback is really as serious as he looks. He ' s the answer to any maiden ' s prayer. Friday, December 12 Tonight, the D. O. ' s had their twenty-first anniversary banquet at the English Tavern — and a good time was had by all. And the opera " Ca •alleria Rusticana " was tonight. I went with George Dehn ! (I thought he would never ask me for a date.) Aubrey Royce can cer- tainly sing ! Saturday, December 13 The Tekes went haywire and threw a formal tonight. Marian Miller and the platonic boy friend, Dan Fawley, pronounced the party as " perfect " , so we ' ll take their word for it. I guess I don ' t rate — I wasn ' t invited — so I stayed home and caught up on the letter writing. Tuesday, December 16 Rose Poly boys came over to play ball with us — and we won again. Great sport, this basketball business. Those boys from Terre Haute might play a better game if they were better fed ! Wednesday, December 17 I ' m dead I Margaret Wait called this noon, and suggested going to town this afternoon. We walked ! The football banquet was tonight. Corbett was elected captain for next year. Bud went, and said they served in regular football style, with quarters ' neverthing. Friday, December 19 The bookkeeping boys from Sparks had to leave us the loving cup to- night. We beat them. Guess they found out they couldn ' t play " rviff " with us ' n. One of them tried to put our " man mountain " , named Musso, onto the bleachers and we almost witnessed a fight, but then somebody always has to stop ' em just when it gets good. The Pi Phi ' s gave their Christnias brawl tonight at Sunnyside Country Club. They played Santa Claus to the boys. Bill Starr said he sure was pleased with his gift — he alius had wanted a rattle! ONE HUNDRED FORTY-NINE Saturday, December 20 The zero hour came at noon today — and none too soon. Everyone was so excited, and all in a rush ! The Sig Alphs threAv their Christmas dance tonight and the house was decorated to perfection, and they had darling hand-painted dance programs. (It was rumored that Martha Adkins went stocking-less!) Monday, January 5 Ho-Hum ! Back to work today, but I don ' t think there was a lot accom- plished. Everybody had to tell everybody else what they did during the holidays. Mary Adkins told me today the Delta Delta Deltas had won the Millidek cup. " Because, " sez Mary, " like a loyal pledge — I done my duty and signed up half the Institute. " Tuesday, January 6 Melba Proctor had on the niftiest boots today. They were black patent affairs, and were really neat! Nice weather for ' em, too — I ' m sick of rain. Friday, January 9 Dr. White spoke in chapel today and told us just how to stud}- for exams. The advice was perfect, and I wish I could use it. The S. A. E. boys gave the grandest turkey dinner for the girl friends. The Pi Phis being in the majority. Saturday, January 10 The Tekes had their Founder ' s Day banquet tonite at the Hotel Orlando. While they feasted and speeched the rest of us watched the Bradley game. It was grand! Only two points dift ' cence in the score, and they were ours, 31-29. Tuesday, January 13 Bud says he got so excited at the Millikin-Eu ' eka game, he ruined a perfectly good hat — but then that ' thar ' score was enough to agitate anyone — 33-32 and Millikin won. Friday, January 16 Shucks, the Irish won, 19-11 for St. Viator. That isn ' t right. Chapel today — Katherine Walker told about the Y. W. convention in Detroit — and the quartet sang. Isn ' t Johnnie Norman the cutest thing? Saturday, January 17 Well, I guess we ' ll know who rates with the campus " aristocrats " now. The Delta Sig house dance is tonite. D ' ye s ' pose Buck will be there? 1 hear they ' re having a ritzy orchestra from sommerz. Monday, January 19 Just another of those pepless Mondays. Every- one is rather pale and wan after the week-end. But the Tekes are having a wet old time any way. Their basement is Flooded. Tuesday, January 20 These nerve-racking basketball games are going to make an old woman of me before my time — especially if Millikin is going to win from Wesleyan in the last thirty seconds with a score of 17-16. Friday, January 23 Another Friday — that means chapel again — for some. To the rest it means forty precious minutes in 1eKE 8A ' 7 t1t t nbb!)B-0 which to inhale a coke. Dear, ' dear, what can the matter be? ONE HUNDRED FIFTY Saturday, January 24 Today was a sad day for everyone, for Millikin lost one of her best loved and most popular students, by the death of Marie Koepke. Monday, January 26 Excuse me while I take a pause and line up the text books. Exams this week. Boy howdy — how I hate ' em ! Tuesday, January 27 Still time out ! Thank ' hebben ' I ' ve only one exam tomorrow. Wednesday, January 28 They ' re almost over — and what a grand and Gl-lorious feelin ' ! Thursday, January 29 That biology quiz would simply slay ya ! Niver have I seen such a set of questions ! Saturday, January 31 The Tri Delts had a dance at Sunnyside for some rushees. Now, why, 1 wonder, didn ' t Speedy Go? Wednesday, February 4 Classes again — the wiser, more sophisticated ones disdained to go the first day. I heard a certain Alpha Chi went to Chicago. I ' ll tell you these big cities are certainly different from these little towns. Tuesday, February 17 Wouldn ' t you know Carolyn would do it? I ' ll bet Starck has a black eye and a swollen nose, when she shows up tomorrow. That basketball sure hit her a good one — but Dan thinks its worth it, for Millikin won 34-18. Merkelback and Charlie played their last game on the home floor. Wednesday, February 18 No. the nose wasn ' t swollen, for as Starck gigglingly explained, ' Tt ' s just always that big " . Friday, February 20 Senior meeting tonite — and they tell me that Hube Griffith makes right good cocoa. There ' s a good chance for some girl, a perfectly fine man! Tri-Delt and Zeta basketball game — and the Tri-Delts won. Millikin won from Illinois College — 48-26 too. Monday, February 23 The question before the public now is — who is Millikin ' s most beautiful co-ed? Well, I know who I voted for. I hope she gets it. Tuesday, February 24 Eureka! Eureka! Millikin won from them, 23-22 — and ain ' t that sumpthin? I hear the Tekes kinda have the K. D.s guessing — and not only in inter- fraternity basketball either. I notice a ' veer ' cute new Freshman fellow. They have too. ONE HUNDRED FIFTY-ONE ii I n 1 1 1 r. H -i-H..r.i..ini..i..i. . i-H .. i ..i. ii. i .. i .. i i m i n i i ii i ri-M-i- ! -! i -i ii i n m.

ONE HUNDRED FIFTY-TWO Thursday, February 26 No longer need we blush for our poorly uniformed band. Tonite and tomorrow night they are giving concerts. The proceeds are going to buy our hand- some stalwarts some nize new uniforms with big brass buttons. Friday, February 27 Dr. Paul Harris, the human fire-cracker, spoke in chapel this morning. Afterwards he spoke in some of the classes. Johnny Ingram must have liked him. He followed him to every room — and heard him four times. Charlotte Meyer, a quiet, sweet blonde Senior, negotiated bringing him here — and had a heated argument with Dr. Hottes, over him. Tuesday, March 3 All the basketball fellows were entertained at the Delta Sig house for dinner. Gene Woods and France were named co-captains for next year. We ought to march off with one championship, with two of them at the pilot wheel — eh? Saturday, March 7 Alpha Chi dance tonite. What a dance — and what a snow ! Bud said he had a peach of a time, and ' twas a " swell " party. Some fellows wore the cutest high top boots and galoshes to school, and George Dehn appeared in overalls ? Not a bad idea at that ! Monday, March 9 Lynn Woollen was elected to head the Senior Class for the rest of the se- mester. Well, it should be a gala march for the Seniors from now on. Thursday, March 12 Pan Hellenic banquet tonite for high scholarship students. Katheryn Rein- hart and " Skeet " Hallford are sure swell promoters. Well, I won ' t be over- worked pressing my formal all ready to go. Eleanor Cobb ' s senior violin recital is tonite. This noon Dr. and Mrs. White were host and hostess to the Senior Class. Katherine Wagenseller said that it was perfect. I think it ' s a lovely idea — and sweet of the president and his wife to think of it. Friday, March 13 " Children of the Moon " was given tonite. " Mid " Campbell sure was proud of her handsome major. The Review did say Hank Merriam was too reserved, but then she knows he can do better than that ! Monday, March 16 And now we find out what has happened — right here in our midst. Mary Edith Kable has Olex ' s pin. Nice work, fella ! Tuesday, March 17 Prof. Mills tried a new one today. He introduced the student body to the speaker. Dr. Howard spoke to us, the Acapella Choir sang, then the quartet (the pride of J. M. U.) sang " Trees " — I loved it!

" is true economy to own the Refrigerator with the Monitor Top AFFORD one! Ask any of your friends ■ who has bought one. General Electric Refrigerators actually save money. They run at a cost of a few cents a day. The efficiency of the Monitor Top, with its her- metically sealed mechanism, sees to that. And your milk and meat and fruit and vegetables that would spoil in a tempera- ture less cold, are kept fresh and whole- some. So you save there, too! The dependability of the Monitor Top sees to that. If you are thinking of ex- pense — buy the refrigerator with the Monitor Top— the General Electric. Very little cash is required to buy one.

Saturday, March 21 The Theta Gammas had their Founder ' s Day dinner tonite. Marjorie Dur- ham was toastmistress and several of their alums were back too. Wednesday, March 25 Helen Hill was elected president of Alpha Chi. I ' ve never met her, though I ' ve seen her a lot, around school. She ' s so small she may have a time managing all those girls. Thursday, March 26 Helen Burns is quite thrilled. Zeta Tau Alpha is sending her as their dele- gate to convention at U. of I. It ' s this week-end. I ' ll miss her in class Friday. Friday, March 27 Marcia Trout was all a-twitter this morning. I walked to the Conservatory with her, and she could hardly wait for the afternoon to come. She ' s to be initiated into S. A. I. tonite — and then a big dinner at the Decatur Club. Now I know why Ruth Gregory took the steps up to third floor two at a time today. She ' s going through too. Saturday, March 28 Tonite is the Sophomore Cotillion, and Dorothy Knauss, Catherine Doane and Chuck Hood were all pretty busy. " Doc " Heidinger had a cute " import " here, from St. Louis, he said. Monday, March 30 Tonite the last tryouts for " R. U. R. " ai e being held. I wonder who ' ll get the parts. It ' s a modernistic play, and I ' m simply crazy to see it. Tuesday, March 31 The Tri Delts have a new night watchman — a cute little pup brought up from Taylorville by Wilma Spates. They have formally christened it " Eppie " — cute ? Wednesday, April J I wish ' t I knew a nize Kappa Delt ! They ' re entertaining in a big way tonite. The walls of 1310 will be bulging with excitement. Stanley Vise is chairman of the annual sweetheart dinner — then Bill Ensor is managing a big house dance afterwards. Bet I have me a K. D. by this time next year. Tomorrow we head for Home Sweet Home, and my golly those nine weeks exams as a parting gift were terrible. My, how we rate with the profs! Sunday, April 12 Pi Beta Phi served a buffet supper for their patroness and all of the Faculty. Now ain ' t that nice ! Quincy Guy said that Reinhart and Chodat could sure sling swell grub. I ' m going to have them all over to eat too!

She ' s chosen as the delegate of Pi Kappa Sigma for their convention, this summer. It ' s to be in Pasadena, California. She ' s plenty lucky — sez me ! Norma Smith is going to Quebec, Canada, as a delegate from the Delta Delta Delta house — Don ' t ' cha envy her? Phyllis Seago is getting plenty thrilled about her trip to convention at Asbury Park, New Jersey. Wednesday, April 15 Harriet Story is chairman of the formal musical and reception the Delta Omicrons are having tonite. The Sigma chapter from Bloomington is coming down as guests. Saturday, April 18 Pi Phi formal is tonite, and it can ' t help but be a success as it is the first Millikin formal at the gorgeous Decatur Club. Bud is going with Mary Martha Abrams and is looking forward to a big time. Sunday, April 19 The Theta Gammas are paying respects to the patrons and patronesses today. Grace Jean Watson, a good looking Junior from Murphysboro, is taking charge of a tea in their honor. Tuesday, April 21 Charles Alfrey, the muscle man of Delta Sigma Phi, asked me the funniest question today. He asked me whether or not I thought the Campfire girls had good characters. ' Magine that. Marjorie Doolin said Corbett asked her the same question. Now I wonder what they ' re up to? Friday, April 24 The first of the last Senior functions is tonite. With Peggy O ' Neil as chief " boss " , the Seniors are having the big annual ball — I hope my formal lasts the season out — ' cause I don ' t see another one lying around loose. Saturday, April 25 Dancing, and more dancing ! Another formal to- nite. The Theta Gammas this time, entertaining. Janet Hoover is arranging it, and she ' s having it at the Decatur Club. Gee — Wot a social season at this school. Delta Sigs are stepping out in tuxes tonite. Johnny Merkelback ' s gal from home was a knockout. Monday, April 27 No Pi Phis in town tonite. Phyllis Seago said they were all going to Cham- paign for Founder ' s Day dinner. Poor Bill — he should have been a bus driver so he could take them over. Wednesday, April 29 Davie Randolph helped me with my math lesson — and is that bov ever smart ! The way he can juggle x ' s and y ' s and what have you — is nobody ' s business! He ' ll be writing a text in that stuff some of these days. ONE HUNDRED EIFTY-SEVEN i Oldest, Largest Decatur Bank i J (Founded A. D. 1860 bv James Millikin I ij + -| i — THE — 1 !

The Kappa Delt formal is tonite. Some- thing tells me classes for the K. D.s will go haywire tomorrow. " Red " Holmes — the flaming youth from Witt — (where the speed boys come from) is looking pretty for his last formal in deah ole J. M. U. Saturday, May 2 It ' s a big day for the Tri Delts ! They ' re going to Springfield, and what a time. Lucille Wilson is in charge and that means a good time for everybody. This is the second formal for this week-end — Not bad, if they can stand the strain ! Monday, May 4 I went shopping with Martha Adkins this afternoon, and then as Pepys would say, " and so to a movie " . Gee, what a peach she is — and a real sport. She IS a quiet little thing — but well, we ' d get along. Wednesday, May 6 Bud brought Thurman McDavid and came over to see me this noon — the best thing I do is lend that boy money. That McDavid lad is a real treat — and a tonic for the blues, but his sole conversation is his girls. Some day we ' ll see his name in the Bright Lights. Saturday, May 9 Out come the new Alpha Chi formals ! They go on parade for the big dance. Hannah Griffith said she had just " been livin ' for this day " . Wednesday, May 13 Another Founder ' s Day banquet on the campus. Tonite the Alpha Chis are sipping soup in that honor. Saturday, May 16 Ah— ha — They ' re doubling up on us — There aren ' t even enough days in the week for them. Anyway the Sig Alphs and the Tekes are being formal (oh, very, very formal) tonite. This idea of two on one nite sure is a boon to the co-eds. It doubles the chances for bids — and that helps. Tuesday, May 19 Another Senior leaving the Conservatory. Mil- dred Clarkson gave her senior piano recital tonite. I ' ll miss seeing her and the blue Buick next year. Thursday, May 21 Well, X marks the day — my first conference with the Dean of Men. All I had to do was sit there and nod my head either " yea " or " nay " . Such big words from such a little man — Our conference sounded more like a doctor ' s diagnosis than a council help. Saturday, May 23 Bud called for a loan this noon. He ' s going to the S. A. I. spring dance tonite. I gave him the cash — but believe me, he put it down in black and white and signed an I. O. U. I ' m on to his " loans " . ONE HUNDRED FIFTY-NINE + Some day when dreams come true let us help you furnish your home. O L F E FURNITURE CO. 246-248 East North St. WHITE PLUMBING AND HEATING CO.

While I was there I heard an argument that would make a Harvard- Yale debate sound like a friendly chat. Dr. Hottes, Dell Davis and Keith Rhea threw verbal brickbats for a solid hour. Saturday, May 30 One week to recuperate and they ' re off again. The D. A. E. boys this time. Charlie Brummer should look a ' honey ' in a tux — Some girl will be lucky! I ' ll bet my best hat Fischer will be the life of that party. Sunday, May 31 The Tekes have a clever plan. Each year they have a May breakfast. They almost missed May this year, but they had it anyway, this morning. I think it ' s darling. Tuesday, June 2 The Tri Delt Seniors entertained all the other Senior girls at breakfast. Wish ' at I was a Senior. Saturday, June 6 The Zeta Taus are bidding the Senior gals " adios " by a dance in their honor tonite. These farewell affairs are kinda sad after all. Tuesday, June 9 Just as I expected ! Here I ' ve been here a whole year, and ftnd I ' ve been overlooking someone. Met a new lad today — black curly hair, blue eyes, sweet, and he hails from Vandalia — Smith ' s the name. Friday, June 12 The last of ' em. The Theta Gammas are dancing their good-byes tonite. So ends a big social year at the Institute. Saturday, June 13 Senior Class Day exercises today. It begins to look as though they really meant to leave us — and before long too. What will we do without little Frankie Newton next year? I as ' t you ! Sunday, June 14 Big date at the S. A. I. house today. The fathers and mothers were guests at dinner. Gee, how we love ' em — even when they forget to send us a check. Bac- calaureate services for the Seniors were today too. Monday, June 15 Sheepskins, honors, speeches, caps and gowns, and tears ! Why, it ' s Commencement, and the end of a grand year. We ' re wishing all the success and luck in the world to our Seniors — and say " good-bye until next year " to the rest.

Each subject studied in school is brought just a little closer through the pictures in the pages of its text- books. Each illustration has meant that the engrav- er ' s handiwork has been maintaining that close bond established back in that distant primer day. It is gratifying to us as members of the engraver ' s profession to have had a small part in the fashioning of this year book. In much the same manner as we have contributed in helping these students glean the knowledge they sought, our share will, through the illustrations in this book, bring back pleasant mem- ories, in years to come when time ' s passage has gilded these pages with the gold of sentiment. Your careers are ahead of you, Class of 1931. As you march onward in the varied paths you follow, it is a source of satisfaction that the engraver, too, through his interpretation of world events, will keep step with you and lay before you the treasures of further knowledge.
