Miller Most dedications are formal — in- scribed as it were on bronze or marble. Solemnly and vaguely, they give offi- cial honor to an executive. Bui we want this to be different. We give you our book because you are our friend: genuine, fair, unruffled, firm, humorous, eager, and human — withal wisely competent. You see, we cannot write a stereo- typed dedication because you are not a stereotyped Dean. c A M P U S PRESIDENT JOHN C. HESSLER With the close of the present year Millikin will have had its doors open for thirty-five years. This is not a long time in the history of an institution, but long enough to give an indication of the orbit in which the University is likely to revolve. It is long enough, likewise, to give the institution a definite " past " . Even at Millikin some things happened " way back when " . The early catalogues and Millideks tell of events and persons that will not return; but we are impressed by the fact that the students and faculty of 1903 had their ideals for Millikin even as we of 1938. This thought gives us hope. As each new spring speaks of the con- tinuity of life in the out-of-doors, so each new Millidek surprises us with the discovery that succeeding generations of students will pick up the torch and carry it on. The children and grandchildren will be worthy of their sires. When those that come after us, thirty-five years from now, look at our like- nesses in the Millidek of 1937-38, and read of our activities in this fateful year, what will they say? May they think at least as well of us as we do of our predecessors of 1903-04! Class of 1973, we greet you from afar! May you realize in your own time the high hopes we have for Millikin today! page fourteen Clarence Lee Miller Dean of University and Professor of His- tory and Political Science Ph.B., University of Chicago A..M., University of Chicago Ph.D., Columbia Un-iversity Lavina Watkins Hess Dean of Women Teachers ' s Certificate, Oberlin College B.S., James Millikin University Eugenia Allin Librarian and Professor of Library Science B.L.S., University of Illinois Viola Maria Bell Professor of Home Economics B.S., James Millikin University A.M., Columbia University Ph.D., Ohio State University Bonnie Rebecca Blackburn Professor of Modern Languages A.B., James Millikin University A.M., University of Chicago Certificat d ' etudes francaises, University of Grenoble, France Edward Sterling Boyer Professor of Religion A.

Baird Bethany, Illinois Bachelor of Science Red hair or no red hair, Don Baird never gets mad. But he ' s a real stu- dent, not because he pulls down good grades, but because he pos- sesses something rather uncommon in these parts known as intellectual curiosity. And he polishes no apples for his grades. It was a lusty Ja, Ja, Ja, Ja that Don contributed in the Cafe chorus on International Night. And it was with this spirit that he entered into all his activities on campus. He even looked cheerful juggling cups and saucers from kitchen to laps at Conant meetings. Cora Elizabeth Baker Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Science To walk down the halls with Cora Baker is to receive a virtual bom- bardment of " hi ' s " and " hello ' s " from all sides. For everyone knows and likes her. She has a friendly way of being at ease with everyone, and she never seems too busy or too pre-occupied to take an interest in what you have to say. If you don ' t have anything to say, she ' s siill interested. Cora is a Home Ec. major and from what we hear she has per- formed some small wonders in the line of dashing off cakes and the like. Any afternoon will usually find her leaning nonchalantly on on the counter in the college supply store, helping to keep the atmos- phere cheery. SENIORS page twenty-two Jessie Elizabeth Baldwin Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Jessie Baldwin gives the impres- sion of always being wide awake, no matter what the weather, time, or place. Maybe this is one reason why Dr. McNabb appointed her head of the ticket sales for Town and Gown productions this year. She goes about anything she does in a well-organized, business-like manner which really produces re- sults as is shown by her scholastic record at Millikin. She was initiated into Pi Mu Theta and is a member of that exclusive threesome known as " Millikin ' s Three Musketeers " — namely, Dro- bisch, Baldwin, and Harris, this last activity having occupied much of her time. Jean Beall Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Believe it or not, Jeanie is a chem- istry major. Somehow that seems incongruous, and Jeanie herself ad- mits that there were times when the reaction was a little slow. It was a picture far removed from the chem- istry lab, however, that she pre- sented as Junior Prom Queen last year in white formal and orchids. She is a Pi Mu Theta also, and was acting president of Panhellenic So- ciety this year. If you ' re hunting for her in the main lobby between classes, a dash of red is usually a pretty good indi- cation that she is around; if it ' s not her dress or the feather on her hat, it ' ll be her shoes. SENIORS page twenty-three Martha Brown Grand Coulee, Washington Bachelor of Arts Competence and comedy are ad- mirably combined in Martha Brown. She can handle any situation, and she has a deluxe sense of humor which flavors everything that she does. We remember one occasion in State Government when, during one of her famous undercover mono- logues, " Little Nell and the Sheriff " , Miss Brown was suddenly called upon to recite. Hilarity ensued among those within hearing dis- tance of her muttered wise-cracks and melodramy, but undaunted Brownie rose to the occasion, and with many halts and much dignity answered the guestion put to her. Her college career has been of her own making; it has reguired much determined hard work on her part. So much has she gained in appre- ciation of beauty and in evalua- tion of people and things that her graduation will be a completion of a rich and profitable phase of her life. Don A. Busing Sibley, Illinois Bachelor of Science In a vote for the most genial man Dn campus, Don Busing would cer- tainly be the peoples ' choice. Be- sides his dimples, he is noted and admired for minding his own business. He ' s guite a hand at mim- icking professors too — especially economics professors. He came to J. M. U. from Lincoln Junior College. He has had a hand in managing Big Blue teams and he made Alpha Omega his senior year. He aspires to be a farm manager. Well, — it ' s the big city ' s loss and the barnyard ' s gain. SENIORS page twenty-four Walter E. Clarke Maywood, Illinois Bachelor of Science When Wally brings his rootin ' Y boys out to a Millikin football or basketball game, the J. M. U. whis- pering cheer corps really sit up and take notice. For he makes a go of whatever he undertakes. He holds down two jobs in town, besides car- rying his college work, and he finds time to manage the intramural ath- letics on campus. Yet we never see him look particularly rushed or agi- tated, and he ' d probably get the blue ribbon if attendance had been taken among the seniors at all the college dances. Athalee Ann Connolly Detroit, Michigan Lee has a buoyancy that beats any bar of Ivory soap. No matter how rough the going, she always keeps her head above water. That five-feet one of fightin ' Irish in her may have something to do with it, but we know it goes deeper than that; it goes down to a streak of pure and unadulterated courage. She started out at Millikin as a P. S. M. student and took her turn with the rest of them, practicing " To a Wild Rose " on the Aston Hall piano. Happy to relate, she ' s an art major now. She has also shown herself to be a capable little actress. She brought down the house as gurgling Nicole in " The Would-be Gentleman " , and her portrayal of Madame Butterfuly was artistic and delicate. Her flare for the comic is her constant companion. Whether standing in the receiving line at a Panhellenic tea or putting her hair up for the night, Topsy-like in rags, she ' s full to the brim and guick on the trigger with deviltry. SENIORS page twenty-five William Arthur Crane Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Science No matter what the problem, Bill Crane can verbally attack it from any angle; he can talk a wicked tennis game as well as a wicked American history course. But he ' s really done a lot besides talking while at J. M. U. He has been a band member throughout his four years and holds the unique distinc- tion of always being the first to arrive on the scene for a band event. He has also played for four years on the varsity tennis team and has been active in intramural athletics. Perhaps we have skipped the most obvious and important of Bill ' s extra-curricular activities. There ' s a certain litt le Japanesy Alpha Chi who has really taken her toll of clock hours. Rena Da Mosso Muddy, Illinois Bachelor of Music Education It ' s been four years now that Rena Da Mosso has carried that fiddle across campus from Aston Hall to the conservatory every morning. And for four years we have watched her play in the Millikin orchestra. She is a music-education student and from the hours she kept at the conservatory and the hours she spent hunting education pamphlets and bibliographies in the library, we are sure that she did a good job in that course. Living four years at Aston Hall has given Rena ' s sense of humor a good workout, and there ' ll be many at the hall who will miss her after dinner concert of swing and sway at the piano in drawing room A. SENIORS page twenty-six Gertrude Louise Dansby Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Music Education Gertrude Dansby is doing many interesting things that some of us have never suspected. In line with her conservatory training, she not only gives music lessons, but con- ducts a night course in music appre- ciation twice a week, as well as conducting the choir at St. Peter ' s Church. She started out at Millikin as a piano major but had so much success with her voice training that she has switched to that field. At her senior recital last spring, it is said, she received more flowers than any girl who ' d sung from the Millikin platform, and we ' d wager that her kindly and pleasant personality had a lot to do with it. Edward Charles Drobisch Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Science In rating the most winning winks and smiles in the senior class, Eddy Drobisch would head the list. He transferred to Millikin three years ago and through his friendly manner (winning wink and smile included), everyone has come to know and like him. Eddy is the third party to the trio of Baldwin, Harris, and Drobisch, and almost any afternoon about 3:10 you see them, all three a little on the short side, walking up west campus, joking over the events of the day. SENIORS page twenty-seven Marjorie Eakin Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Marjorie Eakin is consistency per- sonified. Even with her car full of howling W. A. A. gals waving hot dogs and marshmallows, Marjorie is the same guiet and dignified girl we see around college. Her reserved manner has not kept her out of campus activities, however, as she has been active in women ' s athletics throughout her four years, and has held many offices in her sorority, Delta Delta Delta. We often wish we knew just what Marj is thinking when she drops her chin slightly and looks at us wisely with those brown eyes. Genevieve Fleenor Gays, Illinois Bachelor of Music Education Genevieve is another of the cam- pus fiddle-carriers; and along with Rena Da Mosso made the morning trek, fiddle by her side. She has played in the Millikin orchestra dur- ing her four years, and intends to teach music. She has an interesting hobby; she collects cook books and recipes, which someone, no doubt, will appreciate more than if she had collected China dogs. With her air of dignity, pale skin and flowing black hair she reminds one of a story-book Manchu Princess. SENIORS page twenty-eight Davis Benjamin Folrath Decatur, Illinois Brud Folrath is an extra-curricular man, concentrating his interest in three fields: an Auburn, the Blue Mill, and the women. But when he does and how he does it, he con- siders to be strictly his own business, and to hear him expound that point is indeed a rare experience. It is said that he is quite a me- chanic and when he ' s not out driv- ing the Auburn, he ' s home taking it apart. On campus, he has had a hand in managing Big Blue teams and therefore wears an " M " sweater. He always has a friendly hello or wisecrack in the hall, and if he ' s in the Auburn, it ' s a blast on the horn. Richard Paul Freed Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Paul Freed is a " man of affairs. " For during the two years he has been at Millikin, he has energe- tically and impulsively entered into as many extra-curricular activities as it was possible for him to carry. His cheerful voice and whole- hearted manner have made him a congenial member of many campus gatherings. He is editor of the Decaturian, and in that capacity is turning out a potent paper which has its effect on campus life, not only from the Dust- Pan angle but from the editorial standpoint as well. He also serves on Student Council and is a member of Conant Society. Too, he can non- chalantly dangle a silver Kappa key from his watch fob. " Here comes — I mean, there goes Paul Freed, " for that ' s the pace at which he covers the campus. SENIORS page twenty-nine Chris Troy Garriott Harristown, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Chris Garriott — " The Little Min- ister. " He began preaching a few years ago in little churches outlying Decatur, and in February of this year was ordained into the ministry. He is now assistant pastor in the Central Church of Christ in Decatur. His religious interests have had their influence at Millikin also, and he has played an important part in the Christian Youth Council and in Chapel Programs. Throughout his four years, he has been an ardent and active indepen- dent, and was elected president of the senior class last fall. He assists in the philosophy department, and those who work with him know his fine character and keen sense of humor. . . . P. S. That bolero effect his vests have taken on since he ' s gained a little extra weight is good " Little Minister " stuff, n ' est-ce pas? Roy L. Gehlbach Beason, Illinois Bachelor of Science Roy Gehlbach always looks sleepy. It may be just the candid camera squint which he has de- veloped, but more than likely it ' s the aviation bug; his thoughts and am- bitions are ' way up in the blue and unless he ' s in the cockpit of a plane he seems to think it ' s a waste of time to keep his eyes open. There ' s one thing we can ' t understand, how he manages to pull down such excel- lent grades with his eyes closed. SENIORS page thirty Katharine Louise Hamilton Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Kitchie Hamilton ' s handwriting is as artistic as the figures of an ancient Chinese scribe and as indi- vidualistic as Kitchie herself. And when she came beaming across campus in her Kelly green pumps with Sig at her heels, we knew that spring was really here. She has a flair for details which creeps into everything she does, and when she ' s in charge of a pro- gram or party, her thorough prepar- ation is security against any slip- ups. Many of her plans and plots are concocted over a coke at the corner; and the whine of the big black Packard taking the back- campus hill in second, iBlue Mill bound, is a familiar tune. Harold John Harris Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Science To write about Harold Harris seems a bit foreign; so we ' ll just write about Boo Boo. On campus, he is known as the man with the serious air, but when, in moments of relaxation he dons a derby, monacle, and cigar, he seems well adapted to his nickname. While at Millikin he has made a good scholastic record, part of which may be due to the Tri-Delt influence, and has proved himself guite a hand in managing the Big Blue teams. It is rumored that he aspired to be head of the Schudel Laundry. Time alone can tell that story. SENIORS page thirty-one George Dudley Heffron Decatur, Illinois Tall red-headed Dudley Heffron truckin ' away from the Blue Mill nickelodeon is a familiar sight to everyone. Dud insists that dancing is both his recreation and his exer- cise. This we can well believe after having seen him perform at various Millikin proms and frolics; his con- tended smile covers his face from ear to ear and his energetic dancing covers the floor from end to end. He is another of the " work-your- way-through college " men and has sizzled around corners in the Herald and Review truck for three years now. It is a matter of speculation whether Dud will truck across the platform to receive his sheepskin. Edward Thomas Hogan Dalton City, Illinois Bachelor of Science It ' s Ed ' s sturdy Irish stance that gives away his ancestry, and in that characteristic pose he looks ready for anything that comes along. He is graduating with a degree in ad- ministrative engineering and has been the " man behind the scenes " as chief electrician for all drama produced on the Millikin stage. Besides holding down numerous jobs, he played football during his last two years. It was his per- formance in the Wheaton game this year that put an end to the " Quiet Hogan " epidemic. We ' d rank him high in the senior " good egg " classification. SENIORS page thirty-two Charlotte Barbara Jack Decatur, Illinois Barb Jack wrote her first freshman theme about " Man o ' War " , and if she had had a senior thesis to write, it no doubt would have concerned horses, too. For she likes nothing better than to sneak off to her Dad ' s farm at any time of day or night to ride. She adds with some pride that she can drive the tractor out there, too. She has had many and varied ex- periences during her college career. She went to summer school in Urbana, studied art in Chicago, traveled in Europe, and last year was off campus again studying piano in New York. She can talk with interest and flavor on anything from art to boats, from music to oats. This ability along with her excellent sense of humor and acute appreci- ation of beauty makes Barb the swell person she is. Bernice Dorothy Johnson Greenview, Illinois Bachelor of Science Bernice is one who says little but has her own ideas and sticks to them, as you soon discover if you try to shake down one of her con- victions. She is reported as having only two outstanding vices; she thrives on potent mystery stories and has a passion for puppies of all sizes and shapes, or pictures of puppies of all shapes and sizes. She attended State Normal for her first three years of college, but has come to Millikin to finish up her cooking and sewing and stewing in the Home Ec department here. SENIORS page thirty-three Richard Andrew Johnson Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts According to certain complaints, Dick Johnson has put too much em- phasis on the bachelor part of his degree. Maybe physics majors are that way. When he takes charge of a laboratory as assistant, one marvels both at his brain and at his good-natured patience. He has a silver Kappa key to show for his scholastic achievement for the first three years. His interest in his work often keeps him late in the laboratory and we see him around college in work- coat a la Palmer and grin a la Johnson. Earl Lawrence Kuhle Decatur, Illinois Something came and bit our Larry during his senior year, and we all have marveled at the change in him. Most of us hardly knew him before this year. He was one of those quiet and pre-occupied ath- letes who took turns at playing on and managing Big Blue teams. But this year Larry won a place for him- self as one of the most playful and dutiful romeos on campus. It is in the " chill, still " of the library that he finds his romantic inspiration. SENIORS page thirty-four Mary Elizabeth Livesay Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Mary Livesay is one of those happy-go-lucky individuals who has many friends because of her gener- osity, her consistent good humor, and her ability to carry on a some- what boisterous conversation. She has spent a few semesters of her college career at Illinois, and a trip to Urbana with Livesay convinces one that her good nature is appre- ciated there as well. Although she has majored in prac- tically every department in the uni- versity, Mary has now turned to art and is interested particularly in de- signing trimmings and gadgets for houses. Bruce Cook Lorton Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Bruce Lorton gives the impression of being easy-going and riding all the bumps. But, in reality, he has worked hard and steadily through- out his four years. He ' s one of those individuals who doesn ' t take to the limelight, but deserves credit for be- ing both a good student and a good fellow. He is in the chemistry department and is more frequently seen in com- pany with Millikin ' s science-seekers even in their departmental esca- pades. Bruce ' s father is said to be greatly interested in the oil situation in southern Illinois; so if Bruce comes tearing across campus some morn- ing in a cream-colered Packard, we ' re not to be amazed. SENIORS page thirty-five David McNeilly Utica, Illinois Millard Maienthal Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Dave McNeilly is one of the cool- est-headed men on campus, and it is the courageous and understand- ing attitude he displays that wins him the respect of both students and faculty. It is said that to be tolerant and understanding is to be a truly educated person, and perhaps in Dave McNeilly, Henry Adams could have found his answer to his search for the true education. There are a lot of us who enjoy Dave ' s con- tributions to class discussions — en- joy the trenchant and clear manner in which they are presented. And there are a lot of us who enjoy his smile and his " hello. " Bachelor of Arts Willard Maienthal attends strictly to his own business, and would no doubt take the vote for the quietest man in the senior class. He at- tended the University of Illinois last year, but returned to Millikin along with a few other prodigal sons and daughters to finish up his chemistry course here. His scholastic record has shown him to be a brilliant student, and, as we watch him go about his business on campus, he seems to personify quiet and unobtrusive ambition. SENIORS page thirty-six Margaret Mangrum Memphis, Tennessee Bachelor of Arts Margaret tells a cute story on her- self. St. Louis bound one sunny aft- ernoon, she boarded the wrong Banner Blue and landed up in For- rest before anything could be done about it. She was going to keep it under cover, but her sense of humor got the best of her. And besides being a lot of fun, she has shown herself to be a real plugger. Illness kept her out of col- lege a whole semester, but with determination and hard work she has managed to keep up with her class. She has entered into campus activities with interest and cooper- ation and shows a fine scholastic record. A language major, her activities include Spanish, German, and French clubs, and Pi Mu Theta. Janet Alberta Mertz Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Music Education Janet Mertz is the lady in brown on the campus. Besides dark brown eyes, brown hair, and smart brown clothes, she has the smoothness and mellowness of that color in her per- sonality. She is in the music school and an active member of Sigma Alpha Iota. She attended the Uni- versity of Illinois last year, but was glad to be back to complete her college work at Millikin. We often see her sunning herself on the conservatory steps between classes, with her brown hair blow- ing. And the smile she gives is easy and gracious. SENIORS page thirty-seven Mary Alice Mullen Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Mary Mullen has been called the " prettiest girl on the campus " by more than one. And fortunately she has the virtue of being intelligent as well as pleasant to look at, for de- spite morning walks and corner coffees during class hours, her scholastic standing is high. It is pleasant to remember the thrilled smile on her face some two years ago when she found that she had ranked among the first on the sophomore exams. She is a particularly fine language student and has taken an active part in International Night programs. This year, with sparkling eyes and suave manner, she presided over the Spanish exhibit, looking dark and fascinating in Spanish lace and flowers. Gail Rodger Olsen Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Swede Olsen is well named. As a true son of the north country, he knows the call of the sea. In sum- mer, it ' s the gentle swish of water gliding off the hull of his moth racer, " Chip; " and in winter, it ' s the metal- lic ring of sharp blades across the ice, and the whistle of the wind in the rigging of his iceboat. With smock and brush, he dis- plays another characteristic of his ancestors, for he is an artist and in that capacity has done much for Millikin. And one item we can ' t for- get — his agility in dodging conniv- ing women. To watch him get around at a Millikin-mixer is to watch a master at work. SENIORS page thirty-eight Robert D. Owen Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts We have heard him say, " Dante is not so hot " and " Why read all this tripe? " We have watched him laugh at the frivolities of the crowd, mock the words of the brainless; ignore important persons without trepida- tion, and cooly invite criticism with his non-conformity. We have hur- ried away from the chill of his skep- tical mutterings, cold as steel. But after we have partly pene- trated his exterior, and when we see the two golden heads together, we realize that his curled lip disguises a surprisingly gentle soul. 2 Everett Marion Pippin Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Science To watch Everett Pippin take notes in class is to know that he does a lot of drawing, for he holds his pencil between his first and second fingers, and writes as though he were sketching the Colossus of Rhodes. He is a draftsman out at Mueller ' s, but is interested in adver- tising and is taking a combination business and art course at Millikin. So as not to be caught short in this business of commercial art, he has gone in for photography too. Everett talks as Hal Kemp ' s old crooner, Skinny Ennis, used to sing — in short stacatto jerks as though he had just run up and down the stairs five times before he started. And if he can sing as he talks, we ' d wager Hal Kemp would like to know about it. SENIORS page thirty-nine Jack Rensch Ottawa, Illinois Bachelor of Science Not so long ago, Jack Rensch was classified as one of Millikin ' s ardent aviation enthusiasts, but he doesn ' t talk much about it anymore. It seems that the air waves were a little too bumpy for Mr. Rensch, so he decided to stay pretty close to his commerce and finance course in the future. He came to Millikin two years ago from Colorado University. The weekly week-end excursions he takes to Ottawa have made excel- lent Decaturian copy throughout his stay on campus. But it wasn ' t just through this publicity that he came ' to be known. His friendly manner and ready smile have had much to do with it. His fraternity brothers would like to add that he guacks a mean Donald Duck. Marie Gunilda Ridgley Areola, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Genial Gunilda, better known (by violent personal preference) as genial Marie, is as friendly a person as anyone could meet. This quality together with the pushing of yellow slips for scholars to sign in the Orville B. Gorin library may be the reason that Marie knows and is known by everyone on campus. And many is the term paper or last minute read-and-run speech she has set aright for muddled Millikinites. She shows a deep loyalty to all that she believes worthwhile, and everything she does is tempered with a swell sense of humor. There was a time when she was called " Panic Annie " , but by practicing rigid self-discipline and control she has now qualified herself in our eyes to teach that ten-easy-lesson course, " How to remain cool and collected in the presence of a mouse. " SENIORS page forty Raymond Ebby Scheer Woodriver, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Ebby Scheer is a " good egg. " And the true blue spirit he has shown throughout his athletic career at Millikin is one of the things that wins our respect. In a tough ath- letic season with only feeble support from some quarters, he was always willing and anxious to boast the Big Blue. On both the varsity football and basketball teams, he has proved himself invaluable. But we some- times wonder at the cleaning bill he ran up dusting off the armory floor with his new basketball suit. To add a dash of the dramatic, Ebby was one of the first of the graduating lads to invest in the sparkling stone. G. A. Schlick Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Science Juny Schlick is as level-headed as they come. He always seems to know where he ' s going and why he ' s going there. And from all in- dications, he knows what he wants too — " Sweet music " and " Play, fiddle, play. " He has held numerous jobs throughout his four years at Millikin. There was a good snap-shot of Jolly Schlick in the Millidek a few years back — decked out in garage togs with a million-dollar smile and a grease smudge across his face. He ' s been assisting Robby in the Com- merce and Finance department this year. It ' s been quite a feat to keep the friendship of his classmates and grade their papers at the same time, but Juny has accomplished it. SENIORS page forty-one Laura Belle Scott Blue Mound, Illinois Bachelor of Science When the Zeta Tau ' s took the floor in the inter-sorority basketball tour- nament, Laura Belle Scott, ignoring stuffy senior dignity, was right there in the thick of it as she is in so many campus activities. She is a Home Ec major and besides being active in that department, she has shown her leadership in Y. W. C. A. work, Pi Mu Theta, and in her own sor- ority, Zeta Tau Alpha. She is one of Millikin ' s few equestrians, and enjoys nothing more than riding bareback on her Dad ' s horses around the bumps at Blue Mound. Robert Kenneth Spear Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts King Spears Cole is a merry old soul; whether frantically swinging a tennis racket amid much puffing, or brooding over some intricate phy- sics problem in the library, he dis- plays an irrepressible sense of humor and an infectious laugh which by virtue of its heartiness never seems to get him in trouble. Besides having a good scholastic record to his credit, he has held of- fices in both Pivot and Phi-Bi-Chem clubs. He is one of those science fiends and completes the science duo of Spears and fohnson known in inner circles as Mutt and Jeff. SENIORS page forty-two Helen V. Stauder Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Science According to the Home Ec depart- ment, Helen Stauder is a perfect " yang " with a perfect " yin " person- ality. But to the rest of us she is a quiet, lovely-looking person with a serene and dignified air. And her campus record shows her to be effi- cient and determined as well. She seems well-cast as a Home Ec major and has shown her flair for planning dinners, dances, and par- ties in her role as social chairman of her sorority. Helen will, we know, go through life quietly, wisely and graciously. A:. Mary Elizabeth Stookey Harristown, Illinois Bachelor of Arts " She is like a bit of fine porce- lain, " someone has said of Mark Stookey, for hers is a delicate fragil- ity little encountered in the hurry of our modern university life. But beneath this fair daintiness, there is a great sincerity and intel- ligence that makes her an interest- ing and stimulating member of any class or conversation. Never did we enjoy our writing class so much as the days when some of her work was read aloud. It was through a series of papers she wrote on the Stookey family and their part in the settling of Illinois that we came to see her from a new angle. And when we visited her in the home built by her grandfather with its high arching windows, and fine old furniture, we could see the ties and influences which make Mark the quietly cultured young woman she SENIORS page forty-three Corinne Evelynne Taylor Lovington, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Corinne eats up mathematics in any shape, size, or form and be- sides making a clean sweep of the math department (including both courses and grades), she took a little accounting and electronic physics on the side; and with the same results. We see her often in the round-table study-room in deep conference with those other select super-beings who seek after science and the abstract math. In any number of ways, she has won our respect and admiration while on campus. We like her lively gray-green eyes and the cocky little " Howdy " she gives us when we pass her in the hall. Helen Elizabeth Tucker Chrisman, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Kappa keys don ' t bother Helen Tucker, despite the fact that there are still some who think she spends all her spare time at her books. Her grades justify that assumption, we ' ll grant, but her love of play doesn ' t. We remember one morning when the office solemnly called the library: Helen was needed. Not finding her there or in any of the study rooms, (French, Round Table, or Elizabethan,) they were obliged to call the B. M. T. R. and there she was. She is a Home Ec major and has impressed all her professors with her quiet efficiency and poise. She also works in the office and, it is said, knows the alumni files from A to Z and vice versa. Her class contribu- tions have the dignity characteristic of everything she does. SENIORS page forty-four mm- Maryhelen Vannier Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts A sleek and well-modeled head, a slender unusual face, a small well- kept figure and a low throaty laugh — that ' s Maryhelen, an individual if there ever was one. To watch her handle a basketball or tennis racket with deft and agile movement is to know she is a sports- woman. To hear her talk of Cyrano de Bergerac or Shelley is to know she is a student. And the European delight that slight Maryhelen takes in savory foods is a source of constant amaze- ment. John G. Williams Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Science Just give Johnny a sprightly gal and " Hold That Tiger. " Then watch him go — fast and furious. For his extra-curricular activities include a goodly number of Millikin dames and dances. But he also has on his record the business management of both the Decaturian and Millidek, as well as such honorary organizations as Alpha Omega and Conant So- ciety. And he has a friendly way about him which would make the meekest freshman feel at ease, especially when he wears the fresh- man color with that pea-green sweater of his. Even if he does " grade-gripe " to professors in class, we ' ll all grant he ' s pretty astute at maneuvering, politically and other- wise. But we promised John we wouldn ' t mention politics; so we ' ll stop right here. SENIORS page forty-five Charles Richard Wilson Decatur, Illinois To watch Charles Wilson deftly and accurately mixing his chemicals in the laboratory is to know that he is a competent person. In the halls, he is quiet and reserved with a cer- tain air of politeness which sets him apart from some other campus goers. During his four years at Millikin, he has been interested and active in the science department and is usually seen in the company with all those test-tube and alpha ray enthu- siasts. Mary Elizabeth Wilson Decatur, Illinois Bachelor of Arts Mary Wilson gives the impression of being exceedingly quiet and re- served, but to those who know her well, the- old saying, " a dimple in the chin, is a mischievous imp with- in, " aptly characterizes her. We used to see her driving an old Dodge with no brakes around Millikin, and it is said that whoever rode with her played double duty: they held on to the emergency with one hand and the door handle (emergency exit) with the other. She is a member of W. A. A. and was ping pong manager last year, taking charge of the inter-sorority tournament. To see shy Wils put on a dramatic Katharine Hepburn act or to hear her southern drawl is to believe she isn ' t so shy as she wants us to believe.

A C A D E M I C STUDENT COUNCIL OFFICERS Martha Brown President Hoyt Kerr Vice-President Mary Ann Crawford Secretary Robert Bolt Treasurer The Student Council gained a new prestige and innovated several pro- gressive measures in the college activity: they outlined a sound plan for financing the Millidek which enabled every student to receive a copy at a low rate; inaugurated a central treasury for all campus organizations; spon- sored courtesy assemblies; systematized a logical plan for election of publica- tion heads; increased student participation in chapel programs by introducing each speaker.

It was founded in 1914 to honor high scholastic and outstanding participation in extra-curricular activities. Pledging of eligible juniors is in April; initiation and appointment of initiates to offices vacated by seniors is in May. Each year Pi Mu Theta presents a scholarship to the outstanding girl in the sophomore class, based on activity and scholastic excellence. Pi Mu Theta held pledging ceremony for Margaret Mangrum, October twenty-eighth, followed by a wiener roast in Fairview Park. Following the initiation of Margaret Mangrum, Pi Mu Theta held an initiation banguet in Carr ' s Tea Room, October thirteenth. On November sixth, the organization sponsored a reversal dance in the gymnasium in order to increase their schol- arship fund. The young women of Millikin asked the young men for dates and escorted them to the dance and throughout the evening. Pi Mu Theta held a tea dance on the afternoon of February twenty-sixth, in the gymnasium. Proceeds of the dance went to further increase this year ' s scholarship fund. The annual initiation banquet of the organization was held in the Hotel Orlando. One freshman and one sophomore girl, representing highest schol- arship in their respective classes, were guests of honor.

A. Schlick John Williams Alpha Omega is the senior men ' s honorary fraternity and is composed of three members from each fraternity and three independents who are chosen during their junior year by active members. Alpha Omega conducted their annual sale of freshman green caps this fall. The organization of senior men require all freshman men to wear these caps until the outcome of the freshman-sophomore fight during Homecoming week-end. On October ninth, Alpha Omega held their annual mixer in the Millikin gymnasium. The main objective of the mixer is to better acquaint young men and women attending James Millikin University. Each social organization on the campus presents an impromptu stunt; these stunts are judged by members of the faculty. The organization conducted and judged the freshman-sophomore scrap during Homecoming. page seventy-eight PANHELLENIC Jean Beall Athalee Connally . . Marjorie Eakin Laura Belle Scott Doris Sayre . . Eileen Ritchie Lavma Hess Panhellenic, the advisory and governing council for inter-sorority activi- ties, consists of the president, one other active member, and an alumnus from each sorority. Particularly during rush week is the group active; however, Panhellenic sponsors and plans three major activities of each college year ' the annual Panhellenic tea for all new women and sorority members at the beginning of each year; the traditional Song Fest; annual scholarship banguet honoring the women who made the highest average in each class and in each sorority. Members of Panhellenic as of May 1, are: Jean Beall, Ellen Horn Marjorie Eakin, Ruth Troutman, Eileen Ritchie, Mrs. Mary Neureuther Doris Sayre, Bette Patterson, Laura Belle Scott, Eleanor Miller.

President Vice-President Social Chairman Secretary Treasurer Publicity Adviser page seventy-nine KAPPA SOCIETY " We believe that the attainment of high scholarship is of eminently prac- tical value, " wrote the six charter members of Kappa Society drafting a constitution in 1909. And they were not implying merely that individual intel- lectual excellence will provide a good livelihood; but, what was of more importance, that the possession of such mind-quality did not separate Kappas from the work and life of the university and of the world, but made them more avowedly and necessarily participants. In order to encourage and promote the ideals of such sustaining scholar- ship, each fall a Kappa Chapel is held to announce the noteworthy scholastic achievements, to emphasize the value of thought, and to present the society ' s key. In recognition of scholastic excellence during college, the society pre- sents two keys to students; a silver to juniors who have achieved at least a 3.5 average for their three years, and a gold one on Commencement day to seniors who have maintained that average. Each June at an annual Commencement banquet, newly elected members are welcomed. Y. W. C. A. CHRISTIAN YOUTH COUNCIL These two groups afford opportunities for religious activities in college of a more extensive nature than the Tuesday chapel programs. Their activities have not been numerous this year, but their leaders have a nucleus for ex- pansion in the religious life at Millikin. Laura Belle Scott and Chris Garriott were noteworthy members of each organization. page eighty CONANT SOCIETY Quiet, dignified evenings of culture plus fun characterize Conant meet- ings, the only club on the campus for persons especially interested in literature and art. The society was founded in 1920, and has established itself on the campus as an honorary organization. The Elizabethan Study, now a kind of sanctuary for English majors, was established by Conant in 1928. THE YEAR WITH CONANT Nov. 4: Conant Night for new members. Program by officers of the society.

The club was especially fortu- nate to have Madame Suzanne Goehler as member, for she informally added an authentic French atmosphere with her delightful treatises on French customs and talks of the innovations of English in French speech. Elizabeth Williams demonstrated French dress with her collection of dolls and pictures from her trip there last year; Madame Babcock Smith presented a travel lecture.

The club, organ- ized in 1919, is and always has been an active and interested organization on the campus. Two special features of 1937-38 ' s activities are particularly noteworthy: a carnival dance in the gym with special booths sponsored by each fraternity and sorority, and the bi-annual Hi-Jinx party for all Millikin women and senior girls from nearby towns. Games, dancing, prizes for best costumes were a part of the evening ' s program.

The organ- ization is an honor society composed of selected upperclassmen from the departments of physics, biology, and chemistry. It is from these three groups that the name was originated.

Whether it is arranging the stage and lights for a Town and Gown play, a Christmas pageant, dance review, or the Millikin Sing, they are always behind scenes to insure that every detail of lighting and arranging is complete. We appreciate their efforts, whether we often say so aloud or not.

Besides playing for basketball and football games, chapel program, and pep meetings, they introduced a novel Band Promenade of swing music and played two such programs in addition to afternoon dances in the gym. New equipment — a saxophone, bass drum, two megaphones— aided 1937-1938 to be one of progress for the Big Blue Band and another year should see even further achievement. Earl C.

From the first issue in September its members have worked carefully and diligently toward a really excellent paper. The editorial staff inaugurated a far-sighted plan based on merit by which a student becomes an editor after systematic training. The plan means added incentive for under-staff members, a well-organized system prepared for operation at the beginning of each year, a group of experienced and capable candidates for the top position; and it made a cooperative and interested staff in 1937 and 1938. Special editions of the " Dec " appeared — the Homecoming eight-paged paper, a freshman issue in green ink, a faculty edition, an April Fool ' s number, a special final issue, besides several six and eight-page editions. The business staff is egually progressive. Stable finances made it pos- sible for special columns, engravings, and more pages. THE MILLIDEK STAFF i " Ross, Dashner, Williams, V.

The Big Blue was crushed by the superior man-power and blocking of St. Louis U ' s Billi- kens. Millikin, using five inexper- ienced sophomores in the starting lineup, lacked a polished offense and came out on the short end of a 37 to 0 score. Tennessee Tom Alvey and George Dixon stood out in the Millikin line. J. M. U. vs. Illinois College Millikin ' s 1937 homecoming was spoiled by the Blueboys of Illinois College, for the visitors capitalized on breaks to gain a 27 to 0 decision. Millikin held its own until the end of the first half when Illinois College went air-minded and pushed over the first touchdown. Two touch- downs in the third period and one in the last guarter were all results of Millikin fumbles. The Big Blue suffered greatly from loss by injury of all but two of the regular back- field candidates. J. M. U. vs. Augustana Millikin ' s home season started off disastrously when Augustana capi- talized on its only serious scoring opportunity and carried off the honors by a score of 7 to 0. In the first half, the Big Blue seemed to be on her way several times as she piled up six first downs, but, in the last half, Augustana held the spot- light as Millikin was held without a first down. A sixty-yard drive fol- lowed by a one-yard plunge by Tangorra in the third guarter was the deciding factor in the game. Millikin ' s defense was especially noteworthy in this game. page one hundred thirty-five FOOTBALL J. M. U. vs. Ripon A blocked punt in the second quarter was the margin by which the Big- Blue lost to Ripon at Millikin field in her second home game. After Millikin had recovered a Ripon fumble on the four-yard line, New- ton attempted to punt out from his own zone, but a horde of Ripon line- men broke through and knocked the ball back for the lone score of the game. Millikin again displayed a very weak offense, but her tight de- fense featured Big George Dixon, Tom Alvey, and Al Hendricks. J. M. U. vs. Lake Forest The Big Blue ' s first trip into Chi- cago territory was marred by Lake Forest when the latter pushed over two touchdowns for a 13 to 0 win. The first counter came in the second quarter when Lake Forest capital- ized on a fumbled punt and then scored on a twenty-yard end run. In the third quarter they opened up a passing attack which netted a touchdown plus the extra point. One of the best plays was a punt by Newton from his own seven-yard line which rolled dead on the Lake Forest twenty-three. page one hundred thirty-six FOOTBALL J. M. U. vs. Wesleyan Millikin suffered the worst defeat of her thirty-three-year-old rivalry with Illinois Wesleyan this year as the Titans took advantage of superior weight and power to crush the light Millikin team, 40 to 6. Wes- leyan scored once late in the first quarter, added three counters in the second stanza, and then wound up things with a touchdown in each of the last two quarters. Millikin ' s lone score came near the end of the game when Ebby Scheer snagged a pass from Bill Newton. Roy Hind- man, who backed up the line, and George Dixon turned in some fine defensive work for the Big Blue. J. M. U. vs. Wheaton Millikin was handed her fifth con- ference loss by a well drilled Whea- ton eleven which presented one of the most diversified attacks met by the Big Blue all season. The final score, 21 to 0, indicates the effec- tiveness of the Wheaton attack. Millikin ' s only chance to score came in the third quarter when the team forged its way to the Wheaton five- yard line, only to lose the ball on a fourth down fumble. Millikin again lacked offensive drive as is shown by the fact that she made only one first down. FOOTBALL i REWARDED Mr. William Van Law ' s idea that athletes should be rewarded for ability in other fields of endeavor besides sports has found fruition in an annual award, made by the Decatur branch of Block S Kuhl, to those athletes exhibiting proficiency in scholarship. Mr. Van Law felt that a man should be more than a mere athlete— that he should be a well-rounded individual as well; consequently his cultural inclinations would have to balance with his athletic life. With this idea in mind, the plan of awards adopted was that of giving three monetary prizes to upper classmen and three to freshmen. To the junior or sophomore with the highest grade average would go twenty-five dollars in cash; to the upper-class athlete with the second highest average would go fifteen dollars; to the third high man would go ten dollars. The three highest freshmen athletes were to be awarded equally ten dollars each. Al Hendricks, of Taylorville, was number one man among the upper classes; Gail Olsen, second; Burnell Fischer, third. Freshmen awards went to Roy Curtis, Don Hamman, Walter Schlie. These presentations were made by Mr. Van Law before Millikin in a chapel program. page one hundred thirty-nine FRESHMAN FODDER page one hundred forty B A S K E L BASKETBALL Baird, Kuhle, Taylor, Feldman, Custis, Reynolds, lohnson Coslet, Sparks, Hendricks, Scheer, Musso, Fischer 1937-1938 BASKETBALL SCORES HERE Arkansas State 25 Eureka 27 Shurtleff 21 Wesleyan 40 Hawaii 34 North Central 47 Illinois College 19 Bradley 31 Millikin 28 Millikin 32 Millikin 32 Millikin 28 Millikin 41 Millikin 44 Millikin 9 Millikin . . .

The Aggies held their own the first half as both teams scored 12 points. Millikin built up a 21 to 13 advantage in the first ten minutes of the second half, but the Aggies gradually crept up to make the final minutes a nip and tuck battle. Musso and Captain Fischer led the local scoring with eight points apiece. Millikin vs. Eureka Led by Al Musso, wh o bagged eight fielders for the Big Blue, Milli- kin beat Eureka at the Armory by a score of 32 to 27. The locals led most of the way as the whole team rebounded excellently. The return of Aubrey Taylor, who had been out of competition since the football season because of a bad shoulder, bolstered up the Big Blue defense to a noticeable degree. Millikin vs. The Hawaiian All Stars Millikin traveled to Danville for the first win over the Hawaiian All Stars, 44 to 41. The Hawanans, coached by Al Miller, former Milli- kin athletic luminary, displayed a tricky offensive, featured by the sharp passing of Goo and Morguchi. However, they were not able to cope with Millikm ' s superior height as Scheer and Musso, our two tallest men, collected 26 points between them. Millikin vs. Shurtleff Displaying a rather ragged de- fense in spots, the Big Blue finished the pre-conference competition on the home floor with a 32 to 21 vic- tory over Shurtleff College. They grabbed a lead of 8 to 0 as the game started and never relinquished it. Musso and Taylor led the Millikin scoring. page one hundred forty-three Millikin vs. Wesleyan Millikin ' s first loss of the season was dished out by their greatest conference rival, Wesleyan, to the tune of 40 to 28. The contest, played at heme, was a nip and tuck battle until the last few minutes of the first half when the Titans rallied with seven quick points to gain a 24 to 18 lead which they never relin- quished. Musso, Hendricks, and Fischer each had a big hand in the Big Blue scoring. Millikin vs. Shurtleff — Second game The Millikin hoopsters journeyed down to Alton for their second game with Shurtleff and came home with a 30 to 24 victory under their belt. Though Al Musso was held score- less for the first time of the season, Aubrey Taylor returned to his old form to ring up eleven points. The first half was again the lifesaver for the Big Blue, for Shurtleff gained only four points in the second half. Millikin vs. Bradley Millikin played one of the best games of the season although they lost to a powerful Bradley team that had previously beaten Indiana U., Nebraska, and Utah State. The score was 42-33. Millikin, playing without Aubrey Taylor, who was ineligible, gave the Indians a run for their money throughout the game with some spectacular shooting. Hendricks and Fischer each collected four long fielders, and Musso used his left- handed specialty for three out of his four goals. Millikin vs. North Central Millikin lost the third conference tilt of the season to North Central of Naperville by a 47 to 34 score. North Central ' s superior height enabled them to get three times as many shots as the Blue basketeers. Hendricks, Scheer, and Musso led the attack for the Big Blue. page one hundred forty-four BASKETBALL Millikin vs. Hawaiian All Stars Second game The best show of the season was put on " when Al Miller ' s Hawaiian All Stars invaded the Armory floor for a return match, losing by a count of 41 to 34. Height again told the tale as Scheer and Hendricks each collected five fielders for the Big Blue. The Hawaiians, passing and intercepting passes with equal speed and cleverness, played one of the best floor games ever seen on the Armory floor. Millikin vs. Principia In their first athletic contest with Principia College, the Big Blue came out on the long end of a 36-30 score in one of the most hard-fought games of the year. Millikin, trail- ing 26 to 20 with only eight minutes to play, rallied to take the decision. Taylor, Musso, and Scheer did most of the scoring for the Big Blue. Millikin vs. North Central Second game For the second time this season Millikin felt their lack of height against North Central as the latter won by a score of 47 to 44. The game was marked by fast play and spectacular shooting by both teams. The scoring leaders for the Big Blue were Taylor and Musso. Millikin vs. Illinois College The Big Blue made the Blue Boys of Illinois College their first confer- ence victims in a 37 to 35 game at Jacksonville. From the middle of the first half, Millikin was in the lead as Al Musso with fourteen points, Taylor, and Scheer hit con- sistently. page one hundred forty-five BASKETBALL Millikin vs. Wesleyan Second game For the second time this season the Big Blue lost to Wesleyan, this time by a score of 34 to 15, in the most one-sided contest of the sea- son. Millikin was well in the run- ning during the first half, when the Titans held an advantage of 13 to 9. However, the Millikin cagers lost all conception of where the hoop was and did not score a fielder for the first eighteen minutes of the sec- ond half. Millikin vs. Illinois College Second game Illinois College turned the tables on the Big Blue this season as they made up for a former loss with a 19 to 9 victory at the Armory. It was the poorest exhibition of college basketball seen at the Armory this season as Illinois College stalled most of the game with a small lead. Taylor was the only Millikin player to hit at all; he rang up seven points. Millikin vs. Bradley — Second game The largest crowd in several years was on hand at the Armory to see the great Bradley five take Millikin, 31 to 22, in the Big Blue ' s last game of the season. Led by Ebby Scheer, who played a whale of a game on rebounding, Millikin kept the Bradley supporters worried throughout as they were only four points behind with four minutes to go. Bradley was minus the services of Dar Hutchins, star center, because of injury. page one hundred forty-six SPRING SPORTS This year the athletic department, besides continuing tennis, revived three spring sports — baseball, track, and golf. The latter three sports had not been played for the past few years. From all early predictions, Coach Johnson has a promising squad for the varsity baseball season. The tennis team had one veteran, Bill Crane, and two sophomores who showed a lot of promise during their freshman year, Darrel Roberts and Francis Rogier. The other two squads were not yet chosen at the time of this publication.

It was his idea, and that of the several managers, that intramurals were not reaching enough men. There were still too many men in college who never got the opportunity to engage in supervised contests. So to counteract this situation, the innovation of Active and Pledge Leagues was introduced. Under this new system, just twice as many men took part in the sports, and intra- murals assumed a major place on the sports program of Millikin. Also, an increased number of sports was introduced in this year ' s intramural program, including touch football, soccer, volleyball, boxing, wrestling, indoor baseball, softball, tennis, and golf. At this date, February, six sports remain to be played, but the present standings of the participating organizations are ranked in the following order: Sigma Alpha Epsilon, first; Independents, second only by a few points; Delta Sigma Phi; Tau Kappa Epsilon. WINNERS OF 1936-37 Noel Hudson poses with winning cup for Sigma Alpha Epsilon; Walter Clark with trophies won by the Indees; Raymond Scheer with those won by Delta Sigma Phi. Scheer, Hudson, Clarke page one hundred forty-eight WOMEN ' S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION 1937-1938 Perhaps no one organization has achieved as much progress in so short a time as has W. A. A., for only a few years ago it was a tiny disinterested, disjointed group; now they number about half the women in college, sponsor such programs as Ted Shawn and Wiedman-Humphrey dancers, participate in intercollegiate contests, play intramurals, form teams in each sport which have been more than successful. Ellen Horn remains Millikin ' s ace tennis player; LaRaine Greider is noteworthy in soccer, basketball, tennis; Virginia Garver and Maryhelen Vannier, tennis. Following is an itemized account of W. A. A. ' s extensive and varied activities for the year: Wiener roast for all Millikin women at Camp Kiwanis. Chili supper in Home Ec lounge. Intercollegiate play-day at Normal in October. Soccer teams in action; Ellen Horn reached semi-finals in tennis. Intercollegiate play-day at Millikin. Freshmen and upper class teams in basketball participated. Doris-Humphrey — Charles Weidman Dance Group, March 31. Intramural program: Soccer: Manager, Ruth Kilbey. Winner, Indees. Deck Tennis: Manager, Laurabelle Fischer. Winner, Alpha Chi Omega. Basketball: Manager, LaRaine Greider. Pi Beta Phi and Indees tie for first place. Volleyball: Manager, Mary Elizabeth Stookey. Winner, Indees. Ping Pong: Manager, Athalee Connally. Tennis: Manager, Margaret Hall. Baseball: Manager, Eloise Hugenberger. Hiking: Manager, Joda McGaughey. Annual sports banquet and awarding of letters and numerals. Besides an extensive athletic program, which further includes shuffleboard, ring toss, badminton, indoor horseshoes, and darts. W. A. A. has redecorated and equipped the women ' s recreation room in the gym for a meeting room. page one hundred fifty WOMEN ' S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION K OFFICERS MANAGERS President Virginia Garver „ , TT „ Vice-President Ellen Horn Kllbey Hugenberger Hall Treasurer Marjorie Eakin Greider Fischer WINNER OF 1936-1937 Athalee Connolly receiving the intramural first place cup won by Delta Delta Delta.

A. points, Scholarship, were the criteria to decide W. A. A. ' s most representative member. From the entire organization LaRaine Greider was judged by the Director of Women ' s Athletics, President of the Student Council, President of W. A. A., and Women ' s Athletic Editor ' of the Millidek, to excell in the requisites given above. The 1938 Millidek is proud to present a W. A. A— 7 Point girl for the first time, an innovation in the Women ' s Athletic Association which they hope will be tradition hereafter. page one hundred fifty-two The Blue Mill Tea Room Is very happy to hold the same place in the hearts of every MiHikim student as it does in the pages of this section of the 1938 Millidek.

SCHUDEL page one hundred sixty-two Staley Administration Building ASK YOUR Q I I PRODUCTS GROCER FOR Ot3 I ©Y S FROM CORN CREAM CORN STARCH The original Staley product, Cream Corn Starch, has been recognized for over thirty-five years as the finest edible Corn Starch on the market. It is a pure, wholesome, finely powdered product that has a wide range of uses in cooking and baking. It emphasizes flavor instead of smothering it; it smoothes the texture and brightens the color and appearances of gravies, sauces, soups and vegetables; and it is ideal for improving fruit and berry pie fillings. STALEY ' S CUBE LAUNDRY STARCH After long experimentation and exhaustive tests the Staley Com- pany developed a way to make fine laundry starch into Cubes — the first major improvement in laundry starch in over forty years. This modern product eliminates all the difficulties of using the old-fash- ioned lump starch. Exact measurement (just count the cubes) means no guesswork, no waste. Extra fine finish is assured — no discolor- ation, no streaks. Ironing time is cut down — no sticking, no waxing. STALEY ' S SYRUPS Staley ' s Syrups, in striped cans, are available in four popular flavors — Golden Table, Crystal White, Breakfast, and Sorghum Flav- ored. You will enjoy these delicious corn syrups on pancakes and waffles. As an ingredient in candies, muffins and cakes their fine flavor and purity assures the best results. The Golden Table and Crystal White syrups have both been accepted by the American Medical Association for infant feeding because of their special purity, mildness and uniformity. A. E.
