These were selected from the senior class by a committee of juniors consisting of Pauline Requarth, chairman, Marianne Williams, William Requarth, and Wayne Schroeder.

Only one game was lost during- the entire sea- son, that to St. Louis Lmiversity in the opening- game at St. Louis. Three ties and three victories completed this rather unusual record. Under the guidance of Leo Johnson and " Hank " Gill, the team operated without an elected captain throughout the season. However, at the end of the season, the " M " men named Allan Russell of Chicago and Danny Dever of Me- tropolis, the only two seniors on the team, as co-captains tor 1933. 88 RUSSETJ, DT.vVER 193.5 Co-Captains Russell and Dever, who alternated at quarterback and fullback, both turned in some great performances while working with a fine machine, characterized by its willingness to submerge personal individual style for that of the team. After electing their co-captains for 1933, the " M " men then picked Johnny Heinlein as captain for the 1934 team. Johnny will be playing his final season for Millikin. Russell and Earl Weise appeared to be Millikin ' s best threats in the back- field, Russell making several long and complete passes to either Weise or those two sensational ends, Davis or Giraitis. " Bud ' s " defensive work was also out- standing. Weise improved rapidly during the season and was named all-confer- ence halfback on one of the U. P. teams. Giraitis was given second-place men- tion as an end. Perhaps the most impressive thing to most fans throughout the season was the diminutive size of either end of Millikin ' s line. Davis, weighing about 147 pounds, hauled down many a charging backfield man. Giraitis, on the other end. weighing about 165 pounds, was great defensively besides being especially sensa- tional in his ability to snag passes. One of last year ' s veterans, Don Lauher pttt up several fine exhibitions at tackle. He showed great improvement over last year. He had the fight it takes to stop the big boys. Joe Rolinaitis ' toe proved fully as accurate as ever this year and many times he converted points after a touchdown. Fawley and Heinlein, tr icky pony backs, showed flashes of their old power at times. Especially flashy was Elmer ' s fancy returning of punts in the Millikin- Wesleyan game. Fred Christman was a tower of strength in the line and played his finest game against Ripon. Paul Lipinski, Freshman guard, played competently before he received an injury. Herman Mehmken and Mellroy Ross always had a good game under their belts. And Walt Rademacher just about played a lone hand at center. [89] Karl VVeise Skirts VVesleyan ' s Left End Millikin ' s lineup this season was seldom intact, especially in the backfield, where Fawley, Russell, Trainer, Dever, Weise and Heinlein all gave creditable exhibitions. Although missing the great defensive strength of George Musso from last year, the small, but fighting line held their opponents, except St. Louis, to only one touchdown. The 32 to 0 score of the Millikin-St. Louis game hardly tells the real story. The Blue gridders put up a great struggle until worn down in the closing stages of the game. Only 13 points were scored by St. Louis up to the final quarter. In driving rain, Millikin won their first home game from Beloit College, 13 to 0. The Big Blue ' s next opponent was literally swamped, the victim being Quincy College, 65 to 0. One of the high points of the season was the surprising showing of Millikin against the strong Wesleyan eleven. The Blue outplayed the Titans during the major portion of the game, particularly in the last half. Two very strong J. M. U. threats fell a little short and the rivals ended the game in a scoreless tie. By taking advantage of a bad punt, Millikin scored against the DeKalb Teachers for their only Little Nineteen win, 7 to 0. Ripon journeyed to Millikin again and for the second successive year the two played to a scoreless tie. Ripon is scheduled to reappear in the 1934 season and with another good team should provide an interesting game. [90 1 HEINLKIN 1934 Captain The season was closed with the Blue playing Bradley at Peoria. After lead- ing through the first three quarters, Millikin faltered and allowed the Techmen to earn a 7 to 7 tie. captains Allan Russell and Danny Dever, Captain-elect Johnny Heinlein, Fred Christman, Loyle Davis, Elmer Fawley, William Giriatis, Don Lauher, Paul Eip- inski, Herman Mehmken, Walter Rademacher, Joe Rolinaitis, Mellroy Ross, Dean Trainer, Earl Weise. Fred Newton and Dale Bell were the two student managers of the 1933 eleven. Following are the 14 players who received football letters for 1933: Co [91 ] Spilman.

[92] As a complete reversal of last year ' s record, Millikin ' s basketball team came through during the 1933-34 season with one of the finest showings in recent years. Only six games were lost during the season, with the Blue coming out victorious in nine of the tilts. Millikin was fif th in the Little Nineteen conference. The feature of the team was the fact that three freshmen were among the first six of the squad. Outstanding among these, in more ways than one, was Del- mar Cox, six feet four inches tall. These six feet four inches enclosing 180 pounds proved to be the backbone and spark for a fine basketball team. During the course of the season Del collected 166 points ; 61 field goals and 44 free throws, finishing third in the conference individual scoring. In only the Dekalb game was Cox held without a field goal. As far as scoring is concerned, his best per- formance was against St. Viator when he collected 21 points. None of the wit- nesses of that final Wesleyan-Millikin battle will ever forget his 15 points in 15 minutes. Following Cox in the scoring was sophomore Melvin Goldman. Goldie played a consistent game all season and came through with 39 baskets and 10 free throws for 88 points. His game this season was a fine showing of defensive as well as a strong offensive record. Next was another freshman, " Jay-Ball " Glynn, one of the most aggressive players on the team. Jay managed to pick up 77 points during his first year in competition. His best performance was against Blinois College when he rang up 15 points in the last half. Cox Goldi In scoring ability, next came Walt Spilman, one of the two juniors on the squad. Walt annexed 69 counters during the season. ' After playing guard all during the first semester, Leo shifted Walt to forward and in two games he scored 12 points per battle. Then there was Bill Wright, the third first- year man. Wright was No. 1 utility man through most of the season and although he played only in parts of the games he came through with 40 points. The two guards, Archie Van Ausdall and Joe Rolinaitis, lopped in 38 and 36 points respectively. Van Ausdall played only during the last semester and proved himself one of the best guards to play on a Blue quintet in recent years. The way Van Ausdall " put the hooks " in " Lefty " Weger in that great Wesleyan game will long be remembered. Joe, in holding- down Blazine, did equally as good a job and successfully cli- maxed a season of stalwart guarding. Joe ' s famous long shots came at very timely moments. 01 ynn Although playing only in parts of games, Hallahan, Coch- rane, and Weise showed good performances during the season. Millikin journeyed out to Iowa for its opening game and fell before the powerful Big Ten team, 47 to 27. The conference season was opened at Jacksonville where the Blue beat out Illinois College in a thrilling overtime game, 33 to 30. In its second non-conference game, Millikin traveled to Cape Girardeau, Mo., to play the Cape Girardeau Teachers. After leading through most of the game, the Big Blue faltered and the Teachers came through with a win, 30 to 26. S| il man In the first home game of the season, Eureka journeyed to Decatur and suffered a stunning 38 to 27 setback. Then, playing against the conference leaders, DeKalb, Cox was un- able to hit his stride and Millikin lost, 27 to 18. Bradley came to Decatur and went back home feeling there wasn ' t much they could do about this Cox bov ; Millikin, 33; Bradley, 26. 94 McKendree came to the armory with a small team, unable to stop the Big Blue and suffered a 44 to 20 loss. Wesleyan, with Weger running wild, beat Millikin at Bloomington, 56 to 33. It was one of Millikin ' s worst defeats, if not the worst. With the Wesleyan defeat still in mind, Millikin journeyed to Macomb and lost a close contest, 42 to 40. Illinois College, with its two high scorers, Lasiter, six feet nine, and Jim Winn, proved to be Millikin ' s next victim, mostly because " Jay-Ball " couldn ' t miss! The final score was 45 to 33. St. Viator was another fairly easy game and the Millikin boys took them at Decatur, 35 to 29, and a week later beat them there, 37 to 31. Bradley turned out to be a bit tougher at Peoria, but Goldie came through and Millikin took them in an overtime game. 42 to 38. Eureka surprisingly took the measure of the Blue at Eureka by the close score of 46 to 42. The stage was then set for the final game. Wesleyan needed to beat Millikin for a tie for first place in the con- ference, and Millikin was anxious to keep its home record clean and also to avenge an earlier defeat. The two rivals tied up on March 1, for the last game of the season. It was a classic from the word go. With Cox, Van Ausdall, and Rolinaitis leading the way, Wesleyan didn ' t have a chance. The final score was 36 to 28. We want to congratulate Leo Johnson on building up such a fine team. No seniors were on the squad and a great team is predicted for next year. The 1933-34 lettermen included Melvin Goldman, Jay Glynn, and Dan Hallihan, forwards; Delmar Cox and Bill Wright, centers; Joe Rolinaitis, Walter Spilman, and Archie Van Ausdall, guards. Wriifln Van Ausdall n R olinaitis Hallihan [95 Hank " Gill INTRAMURAL ATHLETICS Another extensive and pretentious intramural program was attempted at Mil- likin during the past two semesters under the direction of Wayne " Hank " Gill. Greatly successful in last year ' s program. Hank planned an even better schedule for this year, and it was marked with a spirit of fine fellowship as well as good entertainment for the onlookers. Again the program was divided between interfraternity, interclass, and in- dividual competition. On the same basis as that previously used, points were awarded to the respective champions and place winners. Large crowds witnessed both interfraternity basketball and the boxing and wrestling " matches. Awards were made at the close of the vear in a chapel called by Hank Gill. The personnel of the intramural department was as follows: Director Assistant director Intramural manager. Publicity Chief official.— Forrest Kyle John Mey Karl Grohne John Mey Hank Gill Class managers were the following: 1934 1935 1936 1937 ... Ed Majors .. Al Eubanks Bus Mitchell W illiam Beck Fraternity managers were as follows : Independents Tau Kappa Epsilon Sigma Alpha Epsilon Delta Sigma Phi Everett Schlie Bob Linn ...Forrest Kyle John Mey [OS I John Mey Karl Grohne Intramural Assistant Manager Director CONTESTS As was the custom, the intramural program opened with diamond ball, the competition being between fraternities. The games were held behind the gym on the diamond, laid out last year. Six games were played with the three com- peting teams each playing the other twice. Sig Alphs ca me out on top, getting a good start for their second successive championship in the league. Along with diamond ball came the individual competition in tennis and golf. Duane Garver, a small but mighty Freshman, set back all competition to win the championship in tennis. Garver proved his worth in competitive play by losing very few sets. He won the Class B tennis championship of Decatur m 1933. Another young Decatur star took first place in the golf meet. This was Jack Wright, freshman, well known about Decatur for his exceptional ability on the links. As the weather turned colder, sports turned to the inside, and the next event was indoor interclass baseball, which was handily taken by the Juniors, piloted by- Everett Schlie and Al Eubanks. Interclass basketball tournaments were held next. The Sophomores, last year ' s winners, were again undefeated and so successfully maintained their cham- pionship standing. The Sophomore squad included Rademacher, Grohne, Kyle, Mitchell, Mehmken, Lauher, Baima, and Trainer. In interfraternity basketball, Sigma Alpha Epsilon retained their last year ' s championship by winning five of their six games. In the deciding game, the Sig Alphs defeated the Indees, 21 to 20, in the last few minutes. Members of the winning team were Majors, Russell. Munsie, Rademacher, Hemlein, and Kyle. The second-place Indee team consisted of Grohne, Trammel, Schlie, Lauher, Mehmken, Baima, and Dougherty. [99] Volleyball was the next event and in the interclass competition the juniors won. The Indees took the fraternity championship. Boxing as interfraternity competition was captured by Sigma Alpha Epsilon with Wright, Weiss, and Lewis winning their bouts. Individual champions in boxing were named a week later. Following are the results of competition up to the start of spring activities : Interfraternity : Diamond ball S. A. E. Basketbal l S. A. E.

The Sig Alphs, Indees, Tekes, and Delta Sigs are standing in that order, while the Sophomores are first in interclass competition, followed by the Juniors. Frosh, and Seniors, in the order named. On the spring program are included interfraternity competition in tennis, golf, horseshoes, indoor baseball, wrestling, baseball and track; and interclass ten- nis. Champions of wrestling and outdoor all-around champion have yet to be crowned. WOMEN ' S ATHLETICS Third row: Larsen, Stauder, Blain, Evans, Michaels, Martin, Groves.

A. A. has been active in sponsoring several athletic tournaments this year. These have included contests in tennis, ping " pong, shuffleboard, and basketball. The sale of candy and apples at the football games was spon- sored by W. A. A. Two pledges from each sorority on the campus were chosen to do the selling. Social events have included several potlucks and a spring dance in the gym. 1 102 ] NEW PROGRAM OF ATHLETICS A new program of athletics for women has been sponsored by Miss Corder this year in which more variety has been obtained. Each girl was given a choice as to the type of physical education she preferred. Elementary tennis which changed to elementary basketball as the weather became colder was offered, while another class included advanced tennis and basketball. For the first time a special class in folk, clog, and tap dancing was given. Faculty women and faculty men ' s wives have enjoyed a gymnasium class which Miss Corder has organized for them with meetings on Wednesday even- ings from 7 to 8 o ' clock. Their work has included such games as ping pong, shufneboard, tennis and basketball. The following group of them formed a team : Mrs. Marguerite Zimmerman, Elizabeth Wiley, Velma Davis, Mrs. Dorothy Bell, Bobbie Corder, Ann Louise Welch, and Mrs. Mohie Baker. They succeeded in defeating a team composed of jeannette Knotts, Ruth Curry, Bertha Nicholls, Gladys Wiseman, and Elizabeth Groves by a score of 15-7. BASKETBALL The annual girls ' basketball tournament between organizations on the cam- pus was started on February 13th with the Pi Beta Phi team being defeated by the Delta Delta Delta girls with a score of 21-0. The Alpha Chi Omega team was defeated by the Independents by a score of 17-5 the same evening. The next series found the Tri-Delts winner over the Alpha Chis by a score of 23-5 and the Independents victors over the Pi Phis by a margin of 24-3. The Pi Beta Phi and Alpha Chi Omega game resulted in a 20-14 score in favor of the Pi Phis. The final contest gave the Independent girls the title when they defeated the Tri-Delts with a total of 16-6. This was their fifth title in as many years. Stephenson, Baker, Vannier, Alclerson Sinner. Davie, Sink v.

Miriam Nash is one of those rare types who not only makes all A ' s, but makes A ' s on exams. Marj Wheeler has innumerable Lost Loves to whom she has dedicated many reams of poetry. Betsy Atkinson has the saddest eyes and the best looking clothes in the school. Mania Radford is never seen any place but at the Conservatory or with Bob Noland. Lois Sayre has edited the Millidek and the Decaturian. Bernice Scott will argue with Mr. Mills over any point of English history. Drexel Mey makes violins. Wilma Burwell never goes to chapel. Jean Timm will go ice skating, bicycling, or violet-plucking at any hour in the day. Norma Magnusson is pals with the English department. Barbara Clippinger has the world ' s best figure. Winnie White would be the assistant in the botany department if she were a Teke. Margaret Stewart is never seen without Cynthia Croxton. Revarose Wallins is an active member of Tri-Delt, an active member of French Club, an active member of Spanish Club (if there were one), an active member of Panhellenic, an active member of Pi Mu Theta. That is, Reve is " active. About Millikin politics: The Student Cabinet is an organization which prevents railroading of elections. Upperclassmcn will tell you what to vote before you go into chapel to vote on some- thing important. Alpha Omega and Pi Mu Theta are the senior honorary fraternity and sorority. About time-honored institutions: The O. B. Gorin library is unique in that it is used as a place to study. (The word " library " is used in this sense as a place where books are kept. And by " kept " , we mean kept.) The Decaturian is the weekly Millikin paper (published weakly), in which is printed the news of other colleges and lists of books kept in the library. (This is evidently to let us know that behind those knob-less doors are enough books to be stood on shelves instead of between book ends.) Students may have a mite knocked off their tuition by sweeping and dusting the class- rooms. And so the floors are always clean and shining. And the chairs are always spotless. In case Dr. MacGregor leaves no other thoughts in those numb skulls of yours, may it always be remembered that his suggestion for the name of the newest mushroom night spot on Oakland avenue was: Ye Okie Rotte Gutte Shoppe.
