The choir ' s singing has contributed much to the college chapel program. In the fall, the choir presented a beautiful production of Flotow ' s " Martha. " In the spring the choir gave a program and performance over the radio. Page 49 Atilildek gA(u (ytckeitta The Millikin University orchestra under the direction of Harold Clyde Hess and Jose Echaniz, guest conductor, gave two concerts this year. On the first concert, December 13, Ruth Rink, violinist, was presented as soloist with Hess conducting and Henrietta Clark Miller, pianist, with Jose Echaniz conducting. In the sprina concert, Zelna Lucas, pianist, and Veva June Appel, violinist, appeared as soloists, Mr. Echaniz conducted for the piano number. Page 50 1936 MU Mattka The A Cappella Choir gave a beautiful performance of Flotow ' s opera " Martha. " Grant Hadley directed the music; Mrs. Grant Hadley the acting; and Annette Van Dyke the dances. Two of the loveliest arias were " The Last Rose of Summer, " sung by Louise Bredehoft as Martha, and " M ' Appari " sung by John Norman as Lionel, Mar- tha ' s lover. A quartet composed of Louise Bredehoft, John Norman, Beulah May and Kenneth Hennessey sang the difficult " Spinning Song.

Those who gave voice recitals were Mary Strom, soprano, and Beatrice Hill, contralto, both juniors; Virginia Bolin, soprano, and Beulah May, contralto. Of special interest was a joint recital given by Louise Bredehoft, soprano, and Zelna Lucas, pianist, and Veva June Appel, violinist. S n otmai Qecltali Each Friday afternoon at 4:30 a student recital was held in Kaeuper Hall. These short, interesting programs were free of charge and all Millikin stu- dents, faculty members and townspeople were invited to attend. The recitals were presented for the purpose of helping music pupils gain poise and self- assurance before appearing before larger, more formal audiences. Three or four students appeared on each afternoon program. Page 52 936 MU cL loie ch.ani-1 Jose Echaniz, internationally known pianist, completed his fourth year as head of the piano department of Millikin Conservatory this year. During the past four years, Mr. Echaniz has thrilled Decatur with his concerts. In addition to his teaching and public performances, Senor Echaniz has appeared as guest conductor of the Millikin orchestra and he has been regular conductor of the Decatur Civic Symphony. His concert engagements this year have included three appearances as soloist with the Philadelphia Symphony, twice in Philadelphia and once in New York with Iturbi conducting; two re- citals in New York, one in the Town Hall and the other in the Barbizon Plaza Hotel; and other recitals in Florida, North Dakota, Washington, D.

Debates this year were with Eureka, Bradley, Principia, St. Louis University, Ohio Wesleyan University, West Virginia University, and Waynesburg College.

It not only enables the students of the depart- ment to keep up with the advances in Home Economics, but it also fosters development in leadership and programs along the line of the class work. The Millikin Club is affiliated with the American and the Illinois Home Econo- mics Associations. The Home Economics Club sold apples in the College Supply Store, and co- operated with the Town and Gown players by serving luncheons to them at two different times. They planned the Hi-Jinks party for all women on the campus and for woman seniors in Decatur and surrounding high schools.

The first meeting was held at the Alpha Chi Omega house under the super- vision of Miss Flora Ross who showed pictures of her trip through Germany the preceding summer and lectured on various spots of interest. The Christmas meeting was held at the Tri-Delt house. Olive Ruth Martin read a Christmas story, Charles Obermeyer read the original Christmas story, and Robert Grissom recited two German Christmas poems. German Christmas cookies were served. The third meeting was held at the home of Elmer Morenz. Dr. Hessler was the guest of honor and Mrs. Saiber, a resident of Decatur, spoke on her ex- periences in Alsace Lorraine during the World War. The members of the club met for the last time this year at a picnic. SJn dap en den ti OFFICERS President Max Klinghoffer Vice-President Rita Kell Secretary June Miller Treasurer Charles Obermeyer The first social function of the Independent men and women was a wiener roast held on the campus followed by a dance in Aston Hall. Late in the fall, an all-Millikin dance was sponsored by the Indees in the gym, which proved to be a great success. Christmas time found the Independents sponsoring a party in the Aston Hall dining room. After a Christmas dinner, carols were sung and gifts were exchanged. The last party of the year was a dance in the spring. The party was held in the Millikin gym, and was only for the Independents.

For the third consecutive year, Coach Leo Johnson ' s MiUikin football team went through its Illinois Collegiate conference schedule undefeated a nd for the sec- ond consecutive year laid claim to a share of the mythical conference cham- pionship. The Big Blue turned back four conference teams — Illinois College, Illinois Wesleyan, Lake Forest and Bradley — to tie Monmouth, which had an identical record of wins and losses, for the title. The 1935 Millikin team was almost a direct antithesis of the powerful eleven which represented the Blue in 1934. True, its conference record was as satis- factory, but the long trail that led to a championship was a rocky and at times disheartening one. Injuries and ineligibilities plagued the Blue from the first game of the season and it was only the ability of Coach Johnson to train fresh- men and inexperienced reserves at a moment ' s notice that kept the victory march going. The Blue suffered the loss of two stellar stars before the season ever started. Earl Weise, fullback, and Loyle Davis, end, both stars on the 1934 eleven, did not return to school. Then, in the first game against Ripon, Wilber " Nick " Gil- bert, 200 pound one-armed tackle, broke three bones in his foot and was out for the remainder of the season. In the second game against Illinois College, Captain Fred Christman, the other 200 pound tackle, broke a collar bone and was forced to the sidelines for the rest of the season. As if that wasn ' t enough, several other players upon whom Johnson placed great value were shipped to the sidelines at different times during the season because of injuries or scholastic difficulties. Among these were Carl Burgener, flashy halfback; Bill Giraitis, all-star end, Gene DeRochi, powerful freshman fullback; Roy Hindman, elusive halfback; and Cecil Garriott, fleet-footed half- back. There was always someone, however, whom Johnson found to fill a va- cated spot and he always gave a sparkling exhibition. Page 100 1936 gMU As is usually the case on a Johnson-coached football team, no single indi- vidual could be pointed out as the " star. " There were many who had their turn to stand in the spotlight of fame and all for good reason. In a backfield that ranked as the smallest in the conference, Carl Buigener, sophomore from Assumption, probably was the brightest of the stars. Fast and tricky afoot, Burgener was the Blue ' s greatest scoring threat and he ful- filled his reputation. His best game of the season was against Illinois College when he turned in two sensational touchdown runs besides playing a superla- tive defensive game. Another " jackrabbit " back was Cecil Garriott, Argenta sophomore, who did not come out for football until the Tuesday before the V esleyan game. Robbed of backfield talent by injuries, Johnson called Garriott out to practice against the wishes of major league baseball scouts in an effort to strengthen the team. Garriott ' s running helped the Blue greatly against Wesleyan and he was an important figure the remainder of the season. It was for the Wesleyan game that Johnson was forced to groom Gene De- Rochi, Taylorville freshman, for the fullback position. Ordinarily a blocking back, DeRochi was switched into a plunging role and he responded gloriously, knifing through the Titan line for consistent gains. While it was the running back who scored the touchdowns and got the head- lines, for the second year it was Ralph Allan and Steve Lenich who did the dirty work. They were blockers. Both past masters at the art in 1934, they widened their scope in 1935 and took on extra duties. Twice Allan galloped out to catch touchdown passes while Lenich, after the first two games, took over the signal calling business. Filling out the backfield roster were Roy Hindman, sophomore halfback; Bur- nell Fischer, freshman halfback, John Rochkes, freshman fullback, and Glenn Claudon, junior quarterback. The line that opened the holes for the backfield was characteristic of Millikin forward walls. For three straight years Millikin football victories have been easier because of an impregnable defense. In these three years only two touchdowns have been scored by a conference team from a running play and both times long passes placed the ball on the Blue ' s goal line. SKULL SCRIMMAGE Page 101 AilU ' MIc A(U FRED CHRISTMAN WILLIAM GIRAITIS Captain Captain-Elect The stars in the line were many. Two of the brightest were Don Lauher, senior guard, and Bill Giraitis, junior end and captain-elect of the 1936 eleven. Lau- her, who was appointed acting-captain after Fred Christman was injured in the second game of the season, proved to be an inspirational leader as well as a real football player. A large majority of Millikin ' s gains were aimed over Lauher and he seldom failed to have a wide hole open for the backs. Giraitis was one of the ablest all-around players. For two years one of the classiest pass snatchers in the conference, Bill was turned into a passer during the 1935 season because no one else filled the job as capably as he. He threw three touchdown passes during the season, two of them against Illinois Wes- leyan. He found time to snag a touchdown pass, block punts, provide inter- ference and play a whale of a game at defensive end. Throughout the rest of the line, play was equally as brilliant. Frank Court- right played at both tackle and end and carried the brunt of the punting. George Dixon was a capable end. Mellroy Ross held down a tackle position with his usual consistent performances. Al Hendricks, a freshman and Paul Lipinski teamed up with Lauher as the guards while Pete Rademacher and Don Stiens divided the center duties. Other reserves who saw service were Thompson, Freiberg, Russell, Heggie and Matthew. At the end of the season letters and sweaters were awarded to Fred Christ- man, Don Lauher, Mellroy Ross, Herman Mehmken, Walter Rademacher, Bill Giraitis, Steve Lenich, Ralph Allan, Carl Burgener, Cecil Garriott, Gene De- Rochi, Paul Lipinski, Nick Gilbert, Albert Hendricks, Don Stiens, Roy Hind- man, George Dixon, John Rochkes and Frank Courtright. The 1935 eleven scored 89 points and gave up 23 in six games. In the four conference games it scored 63 points and allowed 17. Burgener, Giraitis, and Lauher were mentioned on various all-conference teams. Page 102 936 gMU It was the sixth undefeated conference season for Coach Leo T. lohnson in the 12 years he has been at the head at MUlikin. Wayne " Hank " Gill was, of course, assistant coach. Fred Newton, Jr., was senior manager and was assisted by Dale Bell, Brud Folrath, Dick Huff, Bill Burns, and Harold Harris. Millikin ' s offense failed to click in its opening game with Ripon and the Indians from the north went home 6 to winners, their touchdown coming as the re- sult of an intercepted pass followed by a 95 yard run. Illinois College furnished the Big Blue with its first conference game and got away to a 3 to lead in the first quarter on a field goal. Burgener broke loose around his right end in the second quarter and ran 70 yards for a touchdown. Christman ' s placement gave the Blue a 7 to 3 lead. In the third quarter Gir- aitis blocked a punt and Courtright recovered on Illinois College ' s 20 yard line. Burgener immediately scampered the 20 yards to the goal and Christman again converted. Illinois College scored again later on a pass. Besides star- ring in a running role, Burgener played a sparkling game on defense, two timely tackles preventing Illinois College touchdowns. Wesleyan provided Millikin ' s opposition for the Hom.ecoming battle and the Big Blue, riddled by injuries, resorted to an aerial game to repulse the Titans. In the first quarter Giraitis took a lateral and threw 35 yards to Dixon, who stepped out of bounds on Wesleyan ' s two yard line. Rochkes slipped over the goal after DeRochi failed twice but Gene place kicked the extra point. In the third quarter, fourth down on Wesleyan ' s seven yard line, Giraitis again took a lateral after a triple pass behind the line of scrimmage and threw to Allan in the end zone for a touchdown. A pass, Cochrane to Hawkins, tallied Wes- leyan ' s touchdown in the final quarter and made the score 13-7. »■ ' kr ' Jt EVEN THE STRuiNG Page 103 MiUidi k MU HINDMAN BREAKS INTO THE OPEN Lake Forest was the third conference victim, 24 to 0. In the (irst quarter Gar- riott ran 14 yards around his own right end for a touchdown. In the second period Allan threw a 25 yard pass to Giraitis who caught the ball on the 15 and ran over the goal. In the final period Giraitis passed 18 yards into the end zone to Allan for a touchdown and later Hmdman ducked around left end for two yards and a score after he had personally conducted a 60 yard m(3rch down the field. Millikin had little trouble in turning back its non-conference foe, Valparaiso, 26 to 0. Ross fell on a blocked punt for a touchdown m the first quarter and a few minutes later Burgener took a pass from Allan and made a beautiful 55 yard run for a touchdown. In the second period Claudon sneaked over from the one yard line after Rochkes and Fischer had played important parts in lugging the ball down the field. Rochkes scored from the 15 yard line on two smashes at the line in the final quarter. With a share of the conference championship hinging on the Bradley game, Millikin battled through four cold, snowy quarters before emerging victorious, 12 to 0. Bradley threatened several times in the first quarter but Millikin held. The Blue had scoring chances several times in the second and third quarters through the running of Burgener and Garriott, but fumbling spoiled the chances. Then in the final quarter, v ith eight minutes remaining, the Blue went to work. Garriott ran 26 yards to Bradley ' s one yard line where he was pushed out of bounds. On the next play Burgener went over standing up. A few plays later Garriott ran from his own 30 to Bradley ' s 40 yard line, Burgener picked up five, and Garriott then ran right end for 35 yards and a touchdown.

Nights when the whole team was " cold " popped up to cast shadows on the final record while ineligibilities, sickness and injuries hampered the Johnson quintet throughout the home stretch of the schedule. Regardless of these factors, the Big Blue finished the season with a record of 1 1 victories and six defeats. In Little Nineteen conference play Millikin won nine and lost five, good enough to place the Blue and White well up the list in the final standings. Several of the checks in the win column were marked down as upsets and the same can be said of the loss column. Three of Millikin ' s five conference losses were suffered after Delmar Cox, six foot four inch center, had felt the scholastic ax at the end of the first semester. Starting slowly. Cox had reached top form at the end of the first semester, scoring 37 points against Bradley and Augustana. The loss of his scoring ability and height was felt keenly. Captain Melvin Goldman was slowed down by illness near the end of the season and Jay Glynn, suffering from a sprained ankle, played only part time in the final three games. Both forwards missed one entire game. Goldman led the team scoring with 129 points, scored in 16 games. He had three big nights, collecting 18 points against McKendree, 15 against Illinois College and 14 against Augustana. He failed to score in only the Macomb fracas. Glynn was third in the scoring race with 91 points, tallying 16 of the points against Eureka. He scored in every game. Burnell Fischer, Dale Cos- let, Cecil Garriott and William Daigh were reserve forwards during the sea- son, the first two named being especially valuable. In the ten games Cox played in he rang up 100 points to take second honors in the scoring. James Helfrich, Cox ' s successor, tallied 23 points in 12 games. Page 106 936 gAtu The two senior guards — Archie Van Ausdal and Dan Hallihan — pushed in 78 and 75 points, respectively, and played in every game. Hallihan was one Oi the smallest guards in the conference but gained quite a name for him- self through his fast, energetic play. Aubrey Taylor, freshman guard, turned in several valuable performances before an injury forced him out of compe- tion just before the end of the season. Millikin opened the season with a surprising victory over the University of Iowa, 32-30, but failed to continue its " giant " killing act against the great Notre Dame quint. The Irish won, 58-30. The Blue ended its pre-conference warmup by nosing out Cape Girardeau, 31-30. Goldman ' s 18 points led Millikin to its first conference triumph over McKen- dree, 46-27. He was still " hot " against Illinois College and the Blue gained part revenge for two last year defeats by thumping the Van Meter quint, 33-27. Glynn and Cox featured Millikin ' s attack as Eureka became the third loop victim, 45-25. The first conference defeat came at the hands of Illinois Wesleyan, ultimate champions, at Bloomington, 42-24. Millikin kept in the ball game the first half but fell behind during the second 20 minutes. The second straight defeat came from the Macomb Teachers, 24-13, on one of those nights when the Blue was like the weather — cold. The night after the Macomb setback Coach Johnson juggled his lineup and as a result Millikin won from DeKalb, 39-28, with Burnell Fischer pacing the scoring. Goldman, Glynn and Cox flipped in 41 points as Millikin crushed Bradley Tech at the Armory, 53-27, and set the stage for the greatest victory of the season. Augustana College came to Decatur with a string of 19 consecutive basketball victories but Millikin ' s big guns fired loud and long to wreck the Viking ' s winning streak, 48-33. Cox scored 21 points and held the Augie ' s six foot ten center pointless. Millikin ' s next game was a complete contrast, the Blue hitting a new low in scoring as State Normal chalked up a 30-12 decision. DELMAR COX ARCHIE VAN AUSDAL Page 107 Atiilidak gA(u DAN HALLIHAN AUBREY TAYLOR The Johnsonmen completed their revenge act against Illinois College in the next game, however, winning 31-22. Eureka then fell for the second time, 36-32, in a game which found Millikin playing without the services of Gold- man, Glynn and Cox for the first time in three years. Van Ausdal and Hallihan carried on however, with valuable assistance from Fischer, Coslet, Taylor and Helfrich. The Blue next turned in a brilliant 33-29 triumph over State Normal as Gold- man led a flashy last half rally. Hallihan ' s 1 1 points also featured the victory. Millikin dropped its last road game to Bradley, 34-26, and then came back to the Armory to battle Wesleyan to the last ditch before losing, 33-32. A desperate Titan rally in the closing minutes was all that saved the Blooming- ton crew from its first defeat. Goldman and Van Ausdal, played their last game, tallied eight points each while Hallihan, the other senior on the squad, collected three. At the end of the season Captain Goldman was placed on almost every All- Star selection chosen while Cox and Hallihan received honorable mention on several. Following is the individual scoring for the season: PLAYER G FG FT TP Melvin Goldman, f 16 54 21 129 Delmar Cox, c 10 39 22 100 lay Glynn, f 16 40 11 91 Archie Van Ausdal, g 17 31 16 78 Dan Hallihan, g 17 31 13 75 Aubrey Taylor, g 15 9 8 26 Burnell Fischer, f 14 11 3 25 James Helfrich, c 12 11 1 23 Dale Coslet, f 6 1 4 6 Cecil Garriott, f 4 2 1 5 James Thompson, c 4 1 1 3 William Daigh, f 3 1 1 3 Steve Lenich, g 1 Totals 231 102 564 Page 108 936 MU £aieltall Although the 1935 Millikin baseball team spent most of its time watching the rain wash out numerous games, it did find time between showers to play 13 tilts — winning six and losing seven. Two of the games were pre-season affairs with the Decatur Commies of the Three-1 league and two were non-conference battles with Washington University of St. Louis. In Illinois Collegiate confer- ence competition the Blue won four games and lost five. Herman Mehmken and " Lefty " Hopkins formed the Big Blue pitching staff and turned in several creditable performances. Mehmken whipped the Charleston Teachers and Eureka in loop games and allowed but four hits in turning back Washington. He suffered four defeats. Hopkins, who did not reach his real hurling peak until the rain and cold weather gave way to sun- shine, won two and lost two games — winning conference decisions over Nor- mal and Eureka. Cecil Garriott, speedy center fielder, was the ' hitting star of the Blue nine, finishing well up the list in the final conference standing. Bill Giraitis, Paul Lipinski, Archie Van Ausdal and Junior Marshall also wielded a potent bat throughout the season. In two exhibition games with the Commies, Millikin won the first tilt 9 to 8 and was blanked at Fans Field in the second, 9 to 0. Mehmken ' s hurling and home runs by Clauter and Giraitis aided the Blue in annexing its opening conference game over Charleston, 10 to 3. Two of Millikin ' s arch rivals — Bradley Tech and Wesleyan — then handed the Blue defeats, 8 to 3 and 6 to 3, respectively. At St. Louis, Hopkins was beaten 3 to 2 by Washington on a squeeze play in the last of the ninth but Mehmken pitched and batted the Blue to a 6 to 3 victory the next day. Millikin absorbed two more defeats — from Normal 9 to 5 and from Wesleyan 13 to 0, before Hopkins quieted a ninth inning rally to decision Normal, 7 to 5. Charleston next gained revenge for its early season setback by nosing out the Blue, 3 to 2. Millikin ended its baseball season with a rousmg double-header triumph over Eureka. Hopkins hurled effectively in the first tilt to gain a 9 to 3 de- cision and Mehmken breezed along in the second game as the Blue batters hit everything the Eureka pitchers served up to win 18 to 4. The second game went but four innings, which was just as well. Members of the varsity baseball squad were Mehmken, Hopkins, Kuhle, Mar- shall, Lenich, Allan, Craig, Clauter, Giraitis, Lipinski, Spilman, Garriott, and Van Ausdal. Mehmken and Van Ausdal were elected co-captains for 1936. Page 109 MiUid k gAtu W. Wayne " Hank " GUI SJnttamutal The present Intramural system at James Millikin was established by R. Wayne " Hank " Gill at the beginning of the 1932-33 college year as a branch of the physical education department, and for the fourth consecutive year it has served as a valuable addition to college life. It is the purpose of the depart- ment of Intramural Athletics to encourage the men of the student body in com- petitive athletics and organized recreation. Intramural athletics are divided into two leagues, namely. Inter-class and Inter-fraternity. All campus championships and inter-squad tournaments are also held for all students regardless of their competition in either of the other leagues. Intramural awards are furnished by the Intramural department and Alpha Omega. Director of Intramural Athletics Gill was assisted this year by the following students: Intramural manager, Lawrence Kuhle; publicity director, Forrest Kyle; class managers, 1936 — Clarence Mitchell; 1937 — Paul Lipinski; 1938 — Lawrence Kuhle; 1939 — Bob Connor. Fr aternity managers: Delta Sigma Phi — Hugh Grote; Sigma Alpha Epsilon — Herbert Hall; Tau Kappa Epsilon — Dick Arnold; Independents — Paul Lipinski. Up until spring vacation only one inter-class tournament had been held. The class of 1937 won the basketball tournament with the class of ' 39 second, class of ' 38 third and class of ' 36 fourth. Sigma Alpha Epsilon grabbed the lead in the mter-fraternity race by winning the first event of the fall schedule, diamond ball, and at spring vacation held a 30 point advantage. In the diamond boll tournament the other three entries tied for second, the S. A. E. ' s finishing undefeated. Page 110 1936 gA(u Delta Sigma Phi captured the volleyball tournament after a three-way tie necessitated a play-off. The S. A. E. ' s finished second, the Tekes third and the Indees fourth. The basketball tournament also developed into a neck and neck battle with the Indees and S. A. E. ' s finishing in a tie for first, both having handed each other one defeat. The Indees won the play-off tilt by one point. The Delta Sigs finished third and the Tekes fourth. The spring program included volleyball, tennis (singles and doubles) and Softball for inter-class competition; Softball, tennis, golf, horseshoes (singles and doubles) and track for inter-fraternity competition, and tennis, golf, horse- shoes, free throwing, boxing and wrestling for individual championships. Tau Kappa Epsilon won the large intramural trophy last year after a new sys- tem of scoring had to be called into use to decide between the Tekes and Sigma Alpha Epsilon. The Indees finished third and the Delta Sigs fourth. Paul Lipinski won the individual championship by taking second in the free throw contest and winning a boxing and wrestling title.

Through a sincere interest in every student, she has done much to stimulate enthusiasm for the advancement of women ' s athletics. Miss Corder has classes in beginning basketball and tennis for freshmen and sophomores, advanced basketball and tennis for juniors and seniors, track, tap-dancing, hockey, corrective gym, ping-pong, first aid, shuffle-board, and courses in the teaching of physical education for all senior women who plan to do fu- ture work in this field. Although the Women ' s Athletic Association did not function as an organization this year, under her leadership a large group of women was organized to promote further athletic activity. She directs and arranges all athletic tournaments, and has been very successful in presenting the Little Nineteen tennis tournament held yearly on this campus. For the past three years she has taken an active part in girl scout work in the city, and teaches first aid courses in the local Y. W. C. A. Miss Corder received her A. B. degree at Millikin, and has done graduate work at the University of Illinois. Page 112 1936 gA(U Stephenson, ' annier. Brown. (Irisc, Tnrney. llaker The inter-society annual basketball tournament created a spirit o( keen competition this year. Six teams were entered m the tournament, and each team played vigorously to obtain the title. As was the case in last year ' s contest the Independents defeated the Tri-Dells in the finals, to retain the title, which was originally won by other Independents seven years ago, when the first tournament of this kind was introduced at Millikin. Outstanding players, chosen by Miss Corder and the referees of the games, included: Jessie McKeown, Mary Tuschhoff, Mary Wilson, Emily Jane Wood, Mary Weesner, Lois Crawford, Olive Ruth Martin, Maryhelen Vannier, Lenore Stephenson, Virginia Baker, Martha Brown, Lorraine Greider, Norma Dotson, and Laura Belle Scott. Drawings were made from this group to form two teams, and an exhibition game was played March 23. Scores from the tournament were: Delta Delta Delta 22 Pi Beta Phi 14 Independents 35 Pi Beta Phi 28 Independents 8 Alpha Chi Omega 26 Alpha Chi Omega 15 Independents 32 Zeta Tau Alpha 8 Alpha Chi Omega 6 Delta Delta Delta 13 Independents 20 Delta Delta Delta 26 Independents 23 • Pi Beta Phi 11 Zeta Tau Alpha 6 Theta Upsilon 2 Theta Upsilon 5 Zeta Tau Alpha Theta Upsilon 6 Pi Beta Phi 3 Pi Beta Phi 9 Theta Upsilon 3 Zeta Tau Aloha 4 Theta Upsilon . . . .

The annual Little Nineteen tennis tournament was played on the Millikin courts in the spring of 1935. Eleven schools were represented, each by two singles and two doubles entries. These schools included: Illinois State Nor- mal, North Central, Blackburn, Shurtleff, Southern State Teachers, Eastern State Teachers, Wheaton, Eureka, Illinois, Rockford, and Millikin. Miss Wilma Perry of Blackburn, the favorite of last year ' s tournament, who was defeated in the semi-finals, was victorious this year over Miss Viola Vogt of Illinois State Normal, and won the desired title by a 6-2, 6-0 score. Miss Perry played her hardest game in the tournament perhaps, when she met Miss Helen Kitner of Illinois in the semi-finals. Although she won this match also with an apparently great score of 6-3, 6-2, most of the games reached a deuce deadlock, which lasted several minutes. However, she was always able to obtain the two extra points needed to win each game by her unusual hard drives in the opposite back court. Wheaton College carried away the four individual trophies given to the finalists and semi-finalists in the doubles contest, as their second team entry made up of Miss Irene Sanders and Miss Carol Hahne, defeated the first team composed of Miss Betty Kilbourne and Miss Delle MacKenzie, by the score of 8-6, 3-6, 7-5. This game was perhaps the most hard fought and interesting of the whole tournament. Millikin was represented by Hazel Nichols and Maryhelen Vannier, singles; and Virginia Baker and Mable Cooper, doubles. • This annual tennis tourna- ment is one of the most outstanding athletic events for women held in Deca- tur, and a great interest is shown not only by students but a great number of townspeople as well. Shortly after the beginning of the fall semester of school this year, another tennis tournament was given for all women interested here on the campus. Ellen Horn defeated Virginia Garver in the finals to win the local champion- ship title held by Maryhelen Vannier the preceding year. Page 114 936 $MU Sttphensun, tiarver. This year eleven contestants, including two seniors, three juniors, one sopho- more, and five freshmen, entered the annual ping-pong tournament, which was played during the last two weeks in October. Favorites from the pre- ceding year consisted of: Emily Jane Wood, Maryhe len Vannier, Virginia Baker, and Lenore Stephenson. A new ping-pong set, made according to the present regulation size paddles, proved awkward as the scores from the first rung of the game indicated. Virginia Garver, a freshman, defeated Lenore Stephenson, winner of last year ' s title, by the close margin of 21-18, 17-21, 21-19, 21-15. Virginia possessed unique skill in rapid returning of the ball, and sliced seryes which barely skimmed over the net; while " Stevie ' s " game con- sisted largely of good placement shots, and returns which cut across the court with a great degree of speed. These games were played in the game room, sponsored by the Women ' s Ath- letic Association in 1932. Here not only ping-pong but also shuffle-board, archery, and dart throwing furnish amusement to students on cold winter afternoons, when outdoor sports are impossiblei.

Oh, yes, this ' s a swell time of the year! But we should moan and tear our hair. And rant and rave and yell and swear! We should not! Pals of Lady Luck . . . we can just sit still and pluck Those stolen apples from the sweetest tree. And be just as we want to be; Sweet or coy or nasty-nice. Or genuine, or cold as ice. Or mean and cruel, or really sad. Or even slanderously bad. We have our classmates under thumb. And we mean to pur it into some! That is, we could, but strangely enough We don ' t quite feel sarcastic and tough. We just feel sorry our years are through, That there are no more Millideks to do. That our four-year friends will leave in June And won ' t return for a long blue-moon. We ' re sad, and so we ' re feeling kind. Hard hearted readers will please not mind. Besides, the class of ' 36 is different . . . Has no grinds or sticks. Is made of people about whom we could Say nothing — nothing — that was not good!

Don Craig was a second sacker On Leo ' s baseball nine, He played with much agility Which was, of course, quite fine. • • Charley Obermeyer was Hottes ' pet (And for all we know, he may be yet) But Charley got in Town and Gown And earned therefrom no small renown. So F. C. H. was sorta sore And while his audience howled for more Our Charley left the drama flat Now the lab ' s where he hangs his hat. • • The name Ruth Ponder Rhymes with " fonder " And we are reasonably sure That ' s how we ' ll always feel for her. When Millikin had a tennis team In years that ' ve gone before One player they could count on Was Junior " Sammy " Kohr, " Mitchell, Clarence William, " we read . His favorite pastime is to feed The fish (and others) who sit in the Mill And sit and sit and let him fill Them full of stories of blood and gore And Mitchell ' s heroic deeds galore.

Another of our gridders brave Was Mellroy W.

Decatur, Dlinois Page 162 MU So far we ' ve given our attention To Seniors, and have failed to mention That before we finish this invention We have to give the juniors, The freshmen, and the sophomores Some space. " The Millidek ignores The largest group who helped it pay. " (Or not) is one thing they can ' t say! So sing hi-de-do and lack-a-day For those young things who in a year Or two, or three ' 11 go out from here Complete — cap, gown, degree, and tear! Here ' s to the freshmen! (Bless their hearts.) Though tyros at the gentle arts Of writing themes And sewing seams And sawing beams And cheering teams — They ' re well-trained in the social line And make one wish the lot were mine To wear knee pants, (Or skirts, perchance) And love to dance. And live Romance .... Ah, yes, a young thing ' s well-equipped — His lot ' s indeed a blest one. For him no scenes of glamor stripped, And every day ' s the best one! A sophomore is a student who Wants still to act as freshmen do. He likes to be within the sound Of music going round and round. But he must burn the mid-night grease To stop a dough-from-home decrease. And so, to keep all fires alive. He plays till two and crams till five. Oh, a sophomore ' s life must be bestrewed With Grape Nuts as a breakfast food. And Fleishman ' s Yeast three times a day. And Ovaltine, when he hits the hay! A Junior having learned the ropes. Finds life extremely simple He lives up to his family ' s hopes, And trouble ' s but a pimple! Page 163
