If ever love fashioned a Christmas gift, Or saved its money and practiced thrift, 'Twas done in those days, my brother- Those golden times of Long Gone By, Gf our happiest years, when you and I Talked over the gift for Mother. We hadn't gone forth on our different Ways Nor coined our lives into yesterdays In the fires that smelt and smother, And we whispered and planned in our youthful glee Of that marvelous Nsomethingn which was to be The gift of our hearts to Mother. It had to be all that our purse could give, Something she'd treasure while she could live And better than any other. we gave it the best of our love and thought, And, Oh, the joy when at last we'd bought That marvelous gift for Mother! Now I think as we go on our different ways Of the joys of those vanished yesterdays, How good it would If this Christmas-time That same sweet thrill When we shared in be, my brother, we could only know of the long Ago the gift for Mother , l 7 0 flex V 4 u d .-8 ,:, rv 'r s-"" 'A ' - fn 1 . 1' I' P' 'ZQAAC1 'wi 1 wma:-worsen rixrn.

Dean Miller came to Millikin in 1936, and since that time he has become the friend of every student, the con- scientious urge behind the student body. ' DEAN HESS Mrs. Hess has acted as Dean of Women at Millikin for the past nine years beginning as acting dean in 1931 and becoming dean in 1933. Dean 1-less is counselor for all Milli- kin women, old and new, and the faculty member of the Panhellenic organization. 111 HNS PRESIDENT HESSLER President fohn Charles Hessler has had a life full of educational experiences for which he is mentioned in such outstand- ing books as Who's Who. Who's Who in Education, and Who's Who in Science. Twice he has been a member of the Millikin family. 1-le came to the univer- sity for the first time as a chemistry pro- fessor, and he was dean for three years before he left in 1920. In 1934 lames Millikin University enticed him back, and he has remained the head of the univer- sity ever since. It is in that capacity that he has so endeared himself to the hearts of all Millikin students. ji S Iames Albert Melrose AB., A.M., Ph.D. Professor of Philosophy and Psychology Eugenia Allin B.L.S.

They can be found taking part in the Town and Gown productions, in creative writing for both publications, in the business end of the publica- tions, as committee chairmen and on committees, and in all fields of music. Last fall the sophomore class chose Ed Keil to lead it through the year. He has been assisted by Shirley Cornick, vice-president, Margery Price, secretary, and jack Hill, treasurer. Still later in the year Ethelyn Freed was elected to fill the sophomore vacancy on the student council. Many sophomores displayed their dramatic talents during the year, either in one of the two major plays presented or in the series of one-act plays. Mary Ethelyn Knight and jeanne Porter ably portrayed their roles in White Oaks. Mary Fthelyn directed one of the one-act plays while ability behind the footlights was displayed by Don Baldwin, Virginia Lee Bowers, Dorothy Brown, Sally Martin, Dawn Odell, jeanne Porter, Paul Scott, john Stephan, Barbara Stoune, Harold Ward, Melvin Weekly, and Suzanne Webb. Bernard Batchelder earned for himself the phrase, "Bernard's on the lights", by his skillful management. Druanne Davis managed the costumes and Betty jane Ward the properties for the two major productions of the year. A great number of the class have given of their talents to the Decaturiari and Millidek. Among these are Ethelyn Freed, jane Guker, Hal Montague, jeanne Porter, Zola Roberts, Lauren Shaw, jean Simcox, Bette jane Snyder, and Barbara Stoune who worked on the Decaturian: and Betty Birmingham, Druanne Davis, Dorothy Ford, jane Guker, Barbara Stoune, and Suzanne Webb who helped with the Millidek. Outstanding work has been done on the student lounge project by Betty Fischer and Barbara Stoune, chairmen of the finance and publicity committees respectively. Ethelyn Freed has taken charge of the entire move- ment, and a number of other sophomores are taking an active part in this movement by serving on the various committees. At the mock convention held in May, three of the class made nomin- ating speeches for their candidates. They were Ed Keil who spoke for LaFolletteg Laur'en Shaw, LaGuardiag and Bob Weiner, Roosevelt. Two of the three cheer leaders who last fall organized the vocal support of the student body at the various games were sophomores, Virginia Lee Bowers and Tille jane Stowell. Football letters were awarded to Earl Buse, joe Douglas, jack Hagerty, jim johnson, jean Mason, Roger Merker, Bill Mur- ray, Dave Normile, and Ed Zachry. Sophomore men were also prominent in basketball and baseball. Neither does this class lack musical talent. Ten sophomores have found positions in the orchestra: jean Anderson, judith Bishop, Charles Bradley, Ethelyn Freed, Remo Grua, Ed Keil, Chester Malins, Sally Martin, Bernard Stagg, and Doris Elaine Willis. At its first concert in the fall the orchestra played a composition written and orchestrated by Remo Grua. lt was a minuet entitled Punch and judy. ln january, Remo gave a recital of his own. Harold Ward gave a recital in October, and in April he gave a joint recital with Daris Sohn, junior. Harold has become quite well known as a member of the Millikin Conservatory quartet. The sophomores will bear watching during the coming two years, for they have already shown themselves to be potential leaders. 63 I s in 4 rf, ' bk 4 QS I .Vx Q , es 4 ,'f.f .,. .fn . , vig ,,, Bm ' mf ia i 'W if , .

They presented their two annual major productions and several one-act plays. Dr. L. C. McNabb directed the major productions, and members of Dr. McNabb's class in play production directed the one-act plays. "Whiteoaks", the major production of the first semester, was presented twice with very few empty seats in the auditorium either night. The part of Adeline Whiteoak, about whom the play centers, was excellently portrayed by Dorothy Masterson. Ruth Ann Shepard, john Blodgett, E. S. Hershberger, james Weilepp, jeanne Porter, Dale Shaffer, Creighton Lewey, Richard Bur- stein, Mary Ethelyn Knight, and Ctto R. Kyle were excellent in supporting roles. Two evenings of performances of one-act plays during the first semester were enjoyed greatly by the audience. The plays given were UThe Neigh- bors", by Zona Gale, HHer Majesty the King", by Ryerson and Clements, "The Man in the Bowler Hat", by Milne, 'lRehearsal", by Morley, U 'Cp-O-Me- Thumb", by Penn and Pryer, HA Question of Principle", by Elavin, and 'lThe Constant Lover", by Hanken. The second semester several plays were given for various assembly programs. The major production given the second semester was "Our Town". Dr. McNabb directed the play. Parts were taken by Tom Richards, Charles Lewis, Ronald Blodgett, Robert Parrish, Alice Elint, jean DeNoon, Roger Blank, Richard Staley, Virginia Traughber, jim Weilepp, Straley Heaton, Grace Eleming, Murl Sickbert, Emily Cline, Creighton Lewey, Richard Bur- stein, Robert Uhl, Noble Barbee, Dr. B. L. Eryxell. Dawn O'Dell was the assistant director, and Eugene Yoder and Paul Scott were assistant stage niirm mul The Debate Club debated this year the question, "Resolved that the United States should follow a policy of strict economic and military isolation toward all countries engaged in military conflict outside the Western Hemisphere." On january l5 and l6 the Millikin debaters went to the eighth annual debate meet at Normal. This meet was a non-decision affair though all contestants were rated and given criticism. The debaters making this trip were lnabelle Trueblood and Dorothy Dashner, women's affirmative, Zola Roberts and joan Crouch, women's negative, Lauren Shaw and Howard johnson, men's affirmative, Charles Lewis and john McKeown, men's negative. Early in the second semester the debate team went to Charleston. The personnel was the same with the following exceptions: Erank Wiley and Richard Poster composed the men's negative. March l5 and lB the state debate meet was held at Lake Eorest. Charles Lewis and Richard Eoster made up the mens negative team, and due to the illness of joan Crouch, Prank Wiley teamed up with Zola Roberts making a mixed negative team. The rest of the squad was the same as that which went to Normal. Pour members of the debate team are elected by a vote of the squad members to debate in the annual Brown Debate. The prize money is the income of a one thousand dollar endowment made by Dr. Everett j. Brown who stipulated that it be devoted to annual prizes for highest proficiency in debating some historical or sociological question. Thirty dollars is divided equally among the winners while the losers receive ten dollars each. This year the decision went to Dorothy Dashner and Charles Lewis. 73 HIIIHIUHIHN With a tradition of loyalty behind ihem as strong as that of the theater which decrees that "the show must go on", the "Dec" staff presents its weekly effort every Friday morning about lO:3O. One ploughs through the crowd in the main hall to grab a paper from someone else's hands, then leans against the nearest railing to see who's in "The Dregs". The "Dec" made news in the fall when it sponsored the finger printing, for civil identification purposes, of more than BOO Millikin students and pro- fessors by the Decatur Police Department in co-operation with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, During the year there have been two special editions, the Homecoming issue which was printed in blue ink, and the April Fool's edition. The Decaturian, in cooperation with several advertisers, sponsored the election of the Homecoming queen and her four attendants. lnstead of one editor-in-chief this year the "Dec" had two, Ella Louise Lawton and Wilma Frances Lux. Paul Stark was the business manager. THE DECATURIAN STAFF EDITORIAL Ella Louise Lawton Wilma Frances Lux .... .... E ditors-in-Chief Helen Sibthorp ...................

This is made possible by including the price of the annual in the tuition. The plan was originated two years ago and has proved to be very successful each year. The plan of having each student's picture in the book as was done last year was also very successful. Therefore, again this year the price of the picture was included in the price of the book and paid along with the tuition. Burchett's studio brought its equipment out to the school in the early fall, and the pictures were made here. Due to the staff's hard work there were very few students who did not have pictures made. The photographers used special photographic makeup for the pictures, and the general opinion among the student body was that they had never seen better results. A yearbook cannot be produced in a short time. Eew people realize the details that go into making up the book. Each line, each picture, place- ment of the white space, contracts, picture appointments, paper stock, cover, print, theme, copy, ads and ad copy, reading of proof, layouts, organization, and many more items must be carefully considered to make a successful book. Soon after the editor and business manager are chosen by the Student Council in the late spring, they start to work on ideas for the book they will publish the following spring. Margaret Allen and William Adams were chosen by the Student Council as editor and business manager, respectively. They in turn chose their own co-workers. Mr. Ploenges was the faculty adviser.

Mr. Prindl worked diligently all year to continue the improvement of the band started by Pro- fessor Kiefer. The band gave a concert in the fall of the year during Homecoming week-end, and they gave a second concert in May. Both concerts showed the hard work that the band had done preparing for them, and those who attended found that the concerts were even better than they had anticipated. The band has made many appearances, including athletic events, radio pro- grams over WSOY, and leading the Homecoming parade. There are forty-four members in the band. They attended rehearsals twice a week, and often they rehearsed far longer than the required time. However, no one seemed to mind, because of the keen interest of all the band members to produce first class music in an artistic manner. Several of the members have taken high honors in local, state, and national contests. Those with contest ratings are: lames Cooper, trombone-First place, National Contest, Columbus, '37, Cleaon Etzkorn. baritone, lames Cooper, trombone, William Merz, snare drum, Robert Brockmeier, clarinet, Chester Malins, clarinet, Ralph Trost, trumpet, William Lucka, English horn, Paul Stout, trumpet, Oliver Burnette, tuba, Frank Newell, clarinet, Douglas Begeman, clarinet, Murl Sickbert, bassoon. llHlHlllHH When lose Echaniz, Virtuoso Pianist and Conductor, made his entrance from the wings of Albert Taylor Hall, on Thursday, April 4, and conducted the fames Millikin University Symphony Orchestra, it marked the second ap- pearance of the orchestra this season. Under his careful supervision the orchestra is larger this year, and prevailing, as always, is the fine spirit that the conductor has created. Last year the orchestra gave several interesting programs and closed or very successful season with a trip to several southern colleges and a special broadcast from KMOX in St. Louis, The first concert of the season presented Matilde Fraser, violinist, in the "Symphone Espagnolen. Other well enjoyed numbers were the "Entrance of the Gods into Walhalla" from "Das Rheingoldu, by Richard Wagner, and the "Menuet", by Boccherini. The concert of April 4 presented the l'Nut- cracker Suite", with Prof. Walter Emch, head of the Theory Department, conducting. Miss Marilyn Poster, soprano, and Francis Rogier, baritone, were featured in two well-known arias, "The Bell Song" from "Lakme" and "An lenem Tag", by Marscgner.

This is the first year that we have had a large choir C63 voicesl made up of both University and Conser- vatory students. Both members of the choir and those that hear it show a great deal of enthusiasm which will probably lead to continuance of the group. Music used by the choir is of all types, including Negro spirituals, selec- tions from musical shows, and the classics in choral music. Some very lovely effects have been produced through the use of this music. University choir director Helmick is a member of Sigma Alpha Iota and Alpha Gamma Delta and is well-known off campus for her directing of the Decatur Symphonic choir. This group and the University choir gave a joint program in the First Presbyterian church during the year. v Besides Mrs. Helmick, the choir is managed by students: Murl Sickbert, assistant conductor, lulia May Attig, accompanist, and Lucy Phelps, secre- tary. These persons hope to use the University choir as a means to make Millikin famous for its choral work. With this in mind, the group planned to make a trip late in the spring. IIUNHNI lunior and senior English majors and outstanding students in other de- partments belong to Conant, Millikin's honorary English society.

A "tertulia" is a typical Spanish social function where the main business of the day is talking and eating. All students in the Spanish department were invited to this party. Being Millikin's youngest fraternity is the distinction Beta Alpha holds in the Millikin family. lt was organized late in l939 for the purpose of fostering the study of business, the encouragement of scholarship, and the association of students for their mutual advancement by research and practice. Another objective is to promote a closer affiliation between the commercial world and students of commerce. The fraternity was formally recognized by the faculty early in l94O with Dr. Myles E. Bobinson as faculty advisor. At the first meeting the following officers were elected: Straley Heaton, l-lead Master, Boy Custis, Senior Warden, Natt Hammer, junior Warden, Ed- win Keil, Treasurer, Frank Newell, Scribe, and Charles Lewis, Publicity Chairman. The first project undertaken was an advertising campaign designed to "sell" the Evening Division of Millikin to prospective students. Teams were organized under the following captains: Marlin Eakin, Gordon Batchelder, Lyle Gilmore, Eugene Robinson, Charles Lewis, and Marvin Shively, who contacted Decatur's business men, securing their cooperation in this project. Prizes were given to those individuals turning in the best records of achieve- ment. ln connection with this campaign, two of Decatur's leading salesmen, Mr. O. P. l-lufstader and Mr. B. B. Crum, instructed the fraternity on ways and means of selling. At a later meeting Mr. j. C. l-lostetler, of Millikin National Bank, enter- tained the fraternity with an interesting talk on real estate and banking. Plans are being made to have a radio broadcast over Station WSOY, as well as to bring big-name speakers before the fraternity. Also, prospects of joining a national commercial fraternity are being viewed. 89 KHPIJH SUEIHY The high scholastic standing of Millikin's honor students was recognized not long after the founding of Millikin itself.

Until 1922 its membership included all Millikin women who had gained the status of seniors, and it was advised by Dr. Grace Patton Conant, head of the English Department. Since that time, membership has been limited each year to eight women, elected at the end of their junior year by the graduating actives, on the basis of scholarship and participation in campus affairs. Miss Bonnie Blackburn, head of the modern language department, has served as fraternity adviser since 1924. As a service to Millikin, Pi Mu Theta awards a scholarship each spring to the woman in the junior class most deserving that honor. Lelah Galligar was the recipient in 1939. The scholarship fund is maintained by the sale of green hair-ribbons to freshmen women, by sponsoring an annual Beversal dance, and by lesser projects. ln March of this year Pi Mu Theta adopted a new constitution modeled after that of the National Society of Mortar Board, of which the society hopes to become a chapter whenever the University fulfills the qualifications for recognition by other national associations. Members of Pi Mu Theta for the year 1939-1949 were Laurabelle Fischer, president, Bette Patterson, vice-presidentg Wilma Frances Lux, secretary-treas- urerg Bowena Dickey, sergeant-at-arms, Margaret Allen, Elizabeth Duerr, Ella Louise Lawton, and Margy Lou Scheer. Miss Katherine Walker, assistant librarian, is the only alumni member on the campus. HlPHH llMtEH Alpha Omega, Millikin's senior men's honorary fraternity, was composed of seven men this year. The seven, Norman Bussell, Boy Custis, Orville 1-lill, Murl Sickbert, Lyndon Sutherland, john Mclieown, and Virden Bimm, were selected for their extra-curricular and scholastic work during their first three years on the campus. lnitiation ceremonies were held at the end of the school year. During the present year Alpha Omega sponsored the sale of green caps for the freshmen, and also the official Millikin blotters containing the football and basketball schedules and other general information concerning the university. ln October the fraternity held a Wiener roast in Nelson Park, at which time john McKeown was given his formal initiation. A Christmas dinner for the members was held on December 14, 1939, at the Decatur Club, followed by a theater party. ln May the active chapter selected the group from this year's junior class who were honored by bids to the group. The new initiate voted most de- serving was awarded the fifty dollar scholarship at this time. The fraternity's activities this year were directed by Norman Bussell, president, Boy Custis, vice-president, Virden Bimm, secretary-treasurer. Dr. I. A. Melrose was the faculty adviser. 93 lHt INHtIltNIllNlS The Independents of larnes Millikin University, constituting the largest social group on the campus and known more generally as the lndees, are organized to promote a closer relationship among the various groups on the campus and to promote social, political, scholastic, athletic and religious activities among those students and alumni who are not affiliated with a fraternal organization. A questionnaire was drawn up and presented to the lndees in order to make a stronger organization of the group. As a result, meetings were held fortnightly for the remainder of the year. A constitution was adopted for use as a guide in the lndees' activities. Also, the Indees gave their support to the proposed student lounge. The social activities of the lndees opened with the annual wiener roast in Farview Park. The second big function was a Halloween party held at Camp, Kiwanis. Later the Homecoming banquet was held at Westminster Church. Before Christmas vacation a gay dance was held in the dining room of Aston Hall. At the beginning of the second semester a skating party was held at the new skating rink. There were other gala parties at Mueller Lodge and in the Liberal Arts Hall. The season closed with a picnic in Fair- view Park. lndependent officers for the past year were as follows: Orville Hill, presi- dent, Zola Roberts, vice-president, Mary Ann Stofft, secretary, and Bernard Batchelder, treasurer. Dr. R. R. Palmer was the faculty adviser. EHMtHH EHIH The Camera Club was organized in February, l939. lts purpose is to develop the interest of beginners in photography and yet be as technical as the more advanced enthusiasts of photography desire to have it. During the last school year the Camera Club has been more or less inactive. Robert Haan, last year's president, served in that capacity again this year, and Dr. Hottes was the faculty adviser. The club is giving con- siderable attention to the possibility of a course in photography given under the art department. Another plan which they have been working on is the reorganization of the club to cooperate with the school newspaper and the year book to furnish a complete picture story of all Millikin activities. fNext year the members are planning to present a guest speaker each month who will address the club and any students or faculty members who are interested in photography. Ed Wait, a member of the club, has been the Millidek staff photographer for the past year. A bulletin board on which exceptional photographs are displayed is maintained in the main hall by the club. 94 2 ,wzf wa.

Panhellenic is an organization of the fraternity women on this campus with the aim of interfraternity cooperation and the governing of interfra- ternity affairs, especially rushing. lt is composed of the president, an active member, and an alumna of each sorority, with Mrs. Clyde Hess, dean of women, as adviser to the group. Officers are not elected, but rotate each year among the five organizations. This ye'ar Margaret Barkley was presi- dent, Bette Patterson, vice-president, Pauline Ritchie, secretary, Elizabeth Duerr, treasurer, and Ella Louise Lawton, publicity chairman. Eor the second year a quota system was in effect, the quota being based on the total number of women who indicated their desire to go through the rush period. On this basis each organization was allowed to pledge thirteen girls throughout the entire year. Formal rushing season was opened by the annual Panhellenic tea in the Orville B. Corin Library for all Millikin women. Mrs. Clyde l-less and Miss Grace Trumbo presided at the tea table, and the officers of Panhellenic were in the receiving line. On November ll, Panhellenic opened the formal social season on the campus with a ball in the Decatur Club. This is the first event of its kind ever sponsored by Panhellenic, and it is hoped that it will become traditional as in other universities. William Newton was elected as the most represen- tatfive man on the campus and consequently was crowned king of the ball with Boy Custis, Ioseph Douglass, Edwin Keil, and Byron Killam as his knaves. The traditional Panhellenic sing was presented April 26 in the Albert Taylor Auditorium with Dean C. L. Miller acting as master of ceremonies. The members of Panhellenic for 1939-40 were Margaret Barkley, Eliza- beth Duerr, lanet Hamilton, Ella Louise Lawton, Louise Ann Parker, Bette Patterson, lane Priest, Pauline Bitchie, Nancy Stookey, and Barbara Stoune. 96 EPR ne 2ifi25 Fourth Row-Bodkin, Shaw, Fryxell, Stephenson, Baker, Cooper, Thorwick, Fesler.

For the first time in the history of Iames Millikin University the men be- longing to the Greek social organizations have established a permanent interfraternity council. The aim of this group is to establish better under- standing and good will among the fraternities, Delta Sigma Phi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and Tau Kappa Epsilon, and with the administration. lt is not a legislative body, any action on the part of the council will be in the nature of recommendations to the faculty or individual chapters and is not corn- pulsory. The council consists of three delegates from each fraternity, the faculty advisers of the fraternities, and Dean C. L. Miller who presides over the meetings. Each month there is a dinner meeting followed by 'a discussion of matters of common interest to the fraternities and to the college. The first meeting was in the home of Dean C. L. Miller, February l5. Thus far the council has recommended that the fraternity delegates shall be appointed for only one semester with at least one of them being an under- classman, that the fraternity presidents be allowed to appoint the chapter's faculty adviser for a period of two years if the fraternity so desires, and that the customary "Hell Week" for fraternity pledges be regulated and better organized than previously. The lnterfraternity Mardi Gras Ball, February 9, 'at the lllini Ballroom was the first social event undertaken by the fraternities in cooperation with one another. Fred Gilman and Miriam Webner won first place for the most individual costumes. leanne Olbert was elected queen of the ball and was attended by Phyllis Bear, Eleanor Burkholder, Delores Crawford, and Martha Sanks. The first members of the newly-created lnterfraternity Council were Roy Custis, Byron Killam, Earl Cglesby, Fred Gilman, lohn McKeown, Robert Sylvester, William Adams, Charles Ferguson, and Lauren Shaw with Dr. M.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon began the new year with their usual rushing events which were concluded by the pledging of thirty fellows. Surveying the entire year it seems that the fraternity has established a nice balance between primarily fraternity functions and its inter-campus contacts. Each Monday night someone representing the administration or faculty was invited as special guest to the chapter house and throughout the year the men have entertained the other Greek organizations with dinners or dances. Along with these functions there have been numerous radio dances.

Prince, Adams, Hunt, Weatherford This past year's intramural schedule was the shortest on record since the advent of this activity on the Millikin campus. Ten sports were on the calendar for the first semester, and only three for the second semester. Be- cause of the lack of activity in the second semester the intramural schedule ended in February. Balph Allans point system was again used this year, l25 points were awarded the winners of the major sports events, and 75 points to the winners of the minor sports events. The Delta Sigs were the winners of the intramural cup again this year, the Sig Alphs, second, Tekes, third, and lndees, fourth. The schedule this year was under the direction of Athletic Director C. E. Sutherd, assisted by Bill Newton. lim 'Weatherford managed the Delta Sigsg Boswell Prince, the Sig Alphs, Bill Adams, the Tekes, and Carl Hunt, the lndees. Boxing and wrestling drew the biggest crowds ever to attend an intra- mural sports event. Sam Keris again captured both the boxing and wrest- ling crowns in the lightweight division. The final scoring showed the Sig Alphs to be the winners in both of these events. There has been much discussion concerning changing the present system to one of inter-class sports. lf this results, rivalry, which has been a part of the campus sport life for many years, will disappear. There is a definite need for a well rounded intramural program on the Millikin campus, and it is hoped that it will continue. 118 The Delta Delta Delta sorority carried oft top honors in the intramural games to Win the cup.

Miss McClure, women's athletic director, was the instigator at Millikin. Due to her tireless efforts, it now ranks as one of the largest organizations in school. During the course of the year many trips were taken out of town, visiting and participating in play-days at other schools. Among the schools visited were Blackburn College on February l7 to play basketball, MacMurray Col- lege, March 9, to play in a Sports Day, and on April 20 about twenty members went to the University of Illinois to play baseball and tennis. ln October lean Simcox and Gertrude Gollnik were sent as delegates to a pre-convention meeting of the Athletic Federation of College Women. Laurabelle Fischer and Dorothy Dashner were selected as the official dele- gates to the convention held April ll, l2, and l3. The W. A. A. programs during the year were interesting and varied ones.

Laurabelle Fischer, in the eyes of the judges, best typified the all-round girl. She was judged as such by Miss McClure, Womens athletic director, the editor and Womens athletic editor of the Millidek, and the officers of W. A. A. Laurabelle, during her four years at Millikin, has won her numerals, a blue "M", and a White through participation in soccer, deck tennis, bas- ketball, volleyball, baseball, and tennis. She has given much time and effort to the service of W. A. A. as she was intramural manager last year and president this year. We are proud to have you, Laurabelle Fischer, the W. A.

Six seniors and eleven returning letter men formed the nucleus of the squad and all reported in fairly good shape. Sophomores were outstanding and made up the bulk of the squad which was led by Co-captains Ken Lawler and Roy Custis. For a while it seemed the sun once more shone on the Blue gridders. The first game although victorious, was costly. Ken Kramer, showing marvelous grit, played almost the entire first quarter with a broken jaw which put him out for the remainder of the year. Melvin Weakley tore the liga- ments of his arm, Gene Yoder smashed his nose as did jean Mason, Newton twisted his ankle and Burgener hurt his hand. After this game it was bad luck all the way with injuries keeping most of the stalwarts on the line all the season. Don l-lamman, speedy halfback returned after a year's absence, only to be injured in the Wesleyan game which put him on the sidelines. So it went, game after game, and near the end of the season the team com- prised sixteen players, ten of which were untried sophomores. Second Row-Hindrnan, Lesko, Merker, Iohnson, Robards, Custis, Haggerty, Buse, Murray, Schart, johnson. First Row-Zachery, Burgener, Hopson, Lawler, Norrnile, Mason, Douglas, Newton. 122 The season ended showing six losses against two victories. The l939 team, harrassed by load luck, still fought with all it had and chalked up a victory, although figured in the win and loss column cannot always be counted as such. lf there is such a thing as moral victories, let us raise our heads to a team who never said "Die" and who with a strong under- current of dissention in the athletic department, did their best at all times for their co'ach and school. Carl Burgener, Ken Lawler and lean Mason were honored on mythical elevens in the Conference and the team elected loe Hopson outstanding guard to lead them in the l94O season. Sixteen players consisting of four seniors, three juniors and nine sopho- mores were awarded letters at the close ot the season. They were: seniors, co-captains Roy Custis and Ken Lawler, Carl Burgener and Bill Newton, jun- iors, captain-elect loe Hopson, Fred Schart and Sid Rotzg sophomores, Ed Zachary, Earl Buse, lean Mason, Dave Normile, lack Haggerty, Bill Murray, loe Douglas, Roger Merker, lames Iohnson, and Carl Hunt. Charles Lewis was awarded the senior managers letter and lack Hill junior managers letter. 123 wg .

Expecting an easy game, the Blue met a vastly improved team from the year before. Hard power drives were used throughout the game, the Blue being in scoring territory four different times only to see their chances fade due to the lack of offensive punch. The scoring came late in the third quarter when Douglas, sophomore, back on a series of quick opening plays, dashed through left tackle for seven- teen yards and a touchdown. Zachry converted the extra point. This was the most expensive victory the Blue ever gained as Ken Kramer, jug Weakly and Gene Yoder were lost for the rest of the season by injuries and Newton, Burgener and Mason were laid up for the next two games. EUREKA 0 - MILLIKIN 27 The Blue successfully defended its goal and put on a great scoring drive in the last quarter to defeat Eureka 27-U in the second game of the year. Starting slow and with the mainstays of the team on the sideline due to in- juries, Millikin led at the half by a mere 7-U, this being accomplished by giant drives by McLaughlin, Hunt and Douglas. In the second half the Varsity began to cooperate by blocking and charging like teams of old and registered thru markers. ln the final minutes Eureka had the b'all on the three yard line but could not put it over in four downs. CHARLESTON 6 - MILLIKIN 0 Mi1likin's undefeated team journeyed to Charleston for the third game of the season and met a highly primed team who handed the Blue its first defeat of the 1939 season. A 14-yard touchdown run by Henry climaxed a sixty-seven yard march in the final five minutes of play and spelled defeat for our gridders. The Blue had the Charlestonates back on their heels all afternoon and lack of offensive punch was the difference in victory and defeat. This was the first time in history that Charleston has ever won over our Blue. Hunt and Z'achry stood out in the backfield and Buse and Normile on the line in the battle. KNOX 20 - MILLIKIN 13 The Blue's first Conference game ended in a heart-breaking loss, 20-13. Taking the lead at the half by 7-6, the Blue held them back until the third quarter. Knox men then proved they had "the power to pass" and here lies the story of defeat. Christiansen of Knox had our gridders on their heels all afternoon due to his tremendous boots, one of them traveling sixty-seven yards. Mason, Buse and Hopson played outstanding games in the battle. Hop- son intercepted a pass in the first quarter and galloped forty-five yards to a touchdown and Buse literally carried the whole Knox team over the goal to finish the final scoring for the Blue. Mason's hard blocking and tackling kept the Blue in the game all afternoon. VHHSIlY lHHlHHll LAKE FOREST 16 - MILLIKIN 0 Lake Forest spread a gloomy coat of whitewash over Homecoming by defeating our Blue l6-U. The Foresters took advantage of every chance offered them. Their scoring came after two poor kicks and ct blocked punt and an intercepted pass gave them another chance, but the Blue stiffened and held them on the two-yard line before the game ended. The second half saw a new Millikin team on the field, for they came back and more than held their own, making six first downs to the Forester's two. Carl Burgener was the outstanding Blue performer, carrying the brunt of the offensive all afternoon and carrying the ball for a total of 96 yards gained of the Blue's l2O. ILLINOIS COLLEGE 20 - MILLIKIN 0 Still feeling the effects of the Lake Forest game, the Blue went down to inglorious defeat 20-U for the worst defeat of the season. Fighting hard the first half the Blue held l. C. to a U-U score at the half only to succumb to greater numbers in the last half. Don I-lamman was lost for the season in this game when he twisted his leg early in the second quarter. Carl Burgener, Ken Lawler and lean Mason stood out in this game which was mainly trying to overcome a superior number of players which l. C. kept putting on the field. ILLINOIS WESLEYAN 7 - MII.LIKIN 0 lllinois Wesleyan expected to crush the Millikin often beaten gridders only to escape with a 7-U victory on an executed perfect play in the first few minutes. The Big Blue made their most heroic stand of the season. Displaying more spirit and aggressiveness than 'at any time during the campaign, the Blue refused to give up and stopped the Titans through times cold when scoring seemed inevitable. Two offensive threats of the Blue were thwarted because of jumbles. Most of the Millikin team stood out on this courageous defensive. lean Mason, Dave Normile, Ken Lawler and foe I-lopson turned in their best games of the season. BRADLEY 19 - MILLIKIN 6 Going to the 'air for the first time of the year, the Blue gained l63 yards and scored on the Braves, a feat not accomplished by lllinois and St. Louis University. What was expected to be another walloping was turned into a closely fought battle. Carl Burgener, Co-captains Lawler and Custis 'and Bill Newton played their final game and left the Blue's future in the hands of lean Mason, who supplemented his usual stellar defensive play. With several nice pass catches, Ed Zachry and Earl Buse stood out in Millikin's defeat. lHlSHMHN Hllllllll f f Q gy- . I f, V . J 1 3 W 4 Q ' I te time 'Nj' 'Z U Ui l any 2 A Y Q .

The l939 version of the Little Blue was by tar the best team ever to repre- sent the Blue. Undefeated in three games the team under the coaching of Boy Hindman and captaining ot Virgil Wagner developed outstanding stars which will certainly shine on the gridiron in the years to come. The Blue's iamous Four Little Horsemen of lim Donavan, Virgil Wagner, Ed Dahm and Iohn Flaherty ran up a total of 51 points to their opponents' 13 and kept the varsity harrassed all season. At the opening of the season a 76-yard run by Flaherty defeated the Little Titans of Wesleyan. They next met Illinois College on home grounds and ran Wild to be on the long end of a 32-O score, three other touchdowns being called back. For their final game the Frosh journeyed to Bradley to supposedly play their Frosh, only to meet a combination of Varsity and Frosh players and tie them. ln this game the line standouts were Miller, Broyer and Wilson. Coach I-lindman recommended sixteen men for numerals at the end of the season. They Were: Gerald Brewer, Oscar Broyer, Don Corry, Edward Dahm, Iohn Flaherty, Boy Gilcrest, Harlan Iackson, Dan Kenny, Dick Klover, Perry Mclntosh, Bruce Meng, lack Miller, Frank Poneta, Bob Sullivan, Virgil Wagner, and Bob Wilson. 126 The Freshman basketball team went through a ten-game season with only two victories to their credit. l-lowever, the win and lose column fails to tell the complete story of Coach lay C.-lynn's yearlings. Two of the last five games were lost in overtimes, and the other three games went to the other team in the last three minutes of play. The season began with the Freshmen playing the Blackburn College varsity with the Little Blue on the long end of a 38-22 count. Tenney's Ponti'acs and the lllinois Wesleyan Freshmen bested the team in the next two games, but Millers professional team was defeated to the tune of 44-22. Illinois College won a wide open ball game by eight points, and from then on the games proved to be last minute thrillers. Blackburn College turned the tables late in their game after the Blue had been leading all the way and came out on top 34-35. A powerful Oakes team had to go into an overtime to win by one point, and lllinois Wesleyan was powerful enough to stop a last minute rally to win 37-35. lllinois College fell in line also by edging out 'a two-point Victory, 4l-39, and 'l'enney's Pontiacs came out best in a "sudden death" overtime to wind up the season 33-3l. The win and lose column does look dark, but when the firing was over the opponents scored a total of only 370 points to the Freshmen's 374. Mid-season ineligibility cost the Little Blue five good ball players, but twice that many were left who will prove good material for varsity use next winter. l27 VHHSHY HHSIlllllHll The Millikin varsity basketball season of 1939-1940 proved to be rather disheartening. The Big Blue succeeded in winning only three games of a sixteen-game schedule. Coach 1-larold fohnson, working under terrific handi- caps, however, did accomplish a great deal. The team which turned out for the first practice was composed of eleven sophomores, two juniors, and one senior. As the season progressed the team began to shape up but were inclined to snap when the pressure became great. This characteristic is found to be invariably true of a team composed of inexperienced players, which was the case at Millikin. The season began with a road game at the University of Iowa. When the playing was all over, the Big Blue was at the short end of the count, 32-49. The season's final game was played at Lake Forest with the Varsity still short of victory by a score of 32-59. The Big Blue collected its three victories from Lake Forest, the first home game, from Wabash College of Crawfordsville, lndianag and from North Cen- tral in their first meeting. Earl Buse and Dale Minnick did some fine scoring underneath the basket as did Ken Park, Iohn Taflinger, and Captain Al Musso, who worked farther Third row-Keris, Musso, Park. Second row-Murray, Merker, Dudenhoffer, Clausen. First row-White, Taflinger, Oglesby, Butt, Rotolo. 128 :7 R out on the floor. Bill White and Sam Keris Worked as a perfect scoring com- bination, While Bill Murray, Boger Merker, Elmo Morthole, Earl Oglesby, Vincent Botolo, and Iohn Beep proved to be most valuable utility men. The fact has been proven that it is darkest just before the dawn, but Whether this statement holds true or not, great things are expected of the team next year. The careful training that Coach fohnson gave the team, along with the fine material available for next year, should place Millikin close, if not at the top, of the lllinois College basketball column in 1941. MILLIKIN vs. LAKE FOREST The Big Blue opened its home and lllinois College Conference campaign Saturday, December 17, with a 35-26 victory over Lake Forest. The score was close the entire Way until Sam Keris and Bill White began a fast passing, fast scoring type of play that put the varsity out ahead of the Gold Coasters. Both teams played a tight defensive game the first half, and at the inter- mission the score Was knotted at ll all. Again, in the second half, the teams played to a 20-20 tie, but from then on out, the home team held the upper hand. Little Sam Keris scored on a long shot and Bill White sent the ball through the basket three times in 50 seconds to insure the triumph. White shot a bullet pass to Keris who scored. White again saw Buse in the clear and a back-handed pass to the tall center turned into another goal. The White and Keris combination did break the visitors' moral, but Taf- linger and lvlusso also turned in a fine performance which helped account for the victory. 129 VHHSHY HHSIlllHHll MILLIKIN vs. EASTERN ILLINOIS STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE Eastern lllinois State Teachers College proved too powerful for the Big Blue in the second home game, and they held out for a 43-29 victory. The game was close throughout with the Varsity holding an eight-point lead at one time late in the first half, but the visitors warmed up in the second half and built a commanding lead before the game was over. The contest proved to be a rough and tumble affair which forced the referee to keep a close eye on everyone on the floor until the final gun sounded. MII.LIKIN vs. WABASH COLLEGE Millikin's basketball team won its second home game by defeating Wabash College 32-27. The victory was a personal triumph for Coach lohn- son who was directing his first team against Pete Vaughan, under whom Iohnny played during his college days at Wabash. Millikin played a loose game the first half, missing many close shots, and at the close of the first period, the score was knotted at 14 all. The Big Blue went to work the second half and built up quite a lead under the accurate shooting of Taflinger and Buse. Had Millikin been successful at the free throw line, the score would have been quite different than the 32-27 outcome. Earl Buse drew his fourth personal foul with three minutes left to play, but before this he had been able to make ten points to lead the scoring. MILLIKIN vs. WESLEYAN Illinois Wesleyan turned a close game into a complete riot in the second half and humiliated Millikin 57-32. The first half was nip and tuck, the teams going to the intermission tied 20-20, but during the second half the visitors became so sizzling hot that they were able to score from any spot on the floor. As the game became a complete riot, the Big Blue fell apart and the Titans were able to score almost at will. Buse and Taflinger, along with White, Park, and Musso, fought the entire last twenty minutes but were able to score only four field goals despite the fact that they had out-played the visitors the first half. MILLIKIN vs. NORTH CENTRAL Millikin won its second l. C. C. victory by defeating North Central, a sharp shooting te'am from northern Illinois, by a score of 35-32. Earl Buse proved to be the star of the evening by tossing in eight field goals and one free throw for a total of seventeen points. 130 The Big Blue started slowly and the score stood at ll-0 against them when Dale Minick came into the game to put into action a powerful double- pivot combination along with Buse. Minick scored the first point by a free throw, and when the intermission came the score was tied at l4 all. ln the second period North Central held a 26-22 lead until Buse cut loose to put the home team on the top side of the scoring column. lohn Taflinger added ten points by long shots outside the visitors' defense, and when the playing was all over the Blue proved the superior by a score of 35-32. MILLIKIN vs. ILLINOIS COLLEGE Millikin dropped its sixth conference game in eight starts to a fast shoot- ing lllinois College team from lacksonville. Showing a complete reversal of form to that displayed in the road game with lllinois Wesleyan, the Blue boys were scored upon in many cases when the defense was caught flat-footed. The opposition took advantage of this and moved in to score. Although the visitors led by only one point, l7-l6, at the half, their late rally left Millikin far behind. Proving their ability at the basket, the lack- sonville five scored four field goals and one free throw while the home team failed to rally. Taflinger and Keris scored twice more and the game was over with the Big Blue at the short end of the count, 39-33. MII.LIKIN vs. BRADLEY The last, but by far not the least, of the Big Blue varsity games that the home fans were able to see proved to be a forty minute thriller. The power- ful Bradley Braves, winners of thirty-two consecutive I. C. C. victories on the basketball court, were forced to fight the entire way to nose out a courageous Millikin team by a 30-29 score. Bradley held a l4-l3 half-time lead after the scoring had been back and forth the entire time. With four minutes left to play the Braves had a 26-20 lead. Iohn Taflinger flipped a pass to Buse who scored from underneath the basket. "Flat" Minick broke for the basket after he had intercepted a pass and pushed in a basket to bring the score to 26-24 with three minutes left to play. Bradley went into a stalling offense during which Ken Park and Minick fouled with the Braves scoring on both attempts to make the score 28-24. Taflinger hit a free throw and then with one minute left threw in a basket from far out in the court to cut the lead to 28-27. Seconds later Sam Keris got possession of the ball, fired it down to Bill White who was standing all alone under the basket. Bill took the pass and pushed in a short one to send Millikin out in front 29-28. With twenty-six seconds left to go Bradley took the ball, rushed up the floor, completed a basket which gave the Braves their thrilling one-point triumph, 30-29. 131 HHSlHHll HHM is if Top left-Stephan, Kramer, Buse, Weatherford, Wagner. Top right-Flaherty, Schart, Conner, Swinger. Bottom left-Ioyce, Zachry, Park, Mason, Haggerty, Beep, Gilman. Bottom right-Douglas, Dahm, Merlcer, Murray. A buzz of excitement prevails in Millikin's halls over the possibility of a conference championship in baseball. The team this year is coached by timmy Ashmore, a Millikin coach of years ago. Iimmy returned to coach the team after Coach Iohnson left on an extended leave. Too much praise can- not be given to Iimmy who has taken a team composed mainly of freshmen and sophomores and up to the present time has a record of six consecutive wins. The Blues' batting in early training was supposed to be woefully weak. The minute the boys enter a game the whole situation seems to change. Hits of all nature, including a majority of extra base ones, ring merrily off the bats, and the average hits per game is now twelve. The big guns of the Blue have been Maurice Feldman, Frank Poneta, and Ed Dahm. The best game to date has been a 6-l victory over Bradley, the first in five years over these rivals. The first two innings were the big ones for the Blue, and White of Bradley was quickly rushed in to fan 16 out of 19 of our boys to face him. lim Weatherford pitched superb ball, yielding only four hits. The two teams later meeting promises to be a classic. The Blues pitching and receiving staff is exceptionally fine with Weather- ford .the mainstay supported by Kramer, Stephan, Wagner, and Buse on the hurling end, Slats Flaherty, Schmisseur, and Scharf doing a capable job of receiving. The team chose lohn Beep to captain their campaign. 132 HNNIS HHM , , , i pw , 1 , , X 1 f my LE- . ,, Q ' wg' 'ws X t , 5519" S 13,15 'M S .K if a t n' ff "" ' Fe i -we sg fit? Second row-Keil, Potter, Brewer, Hammer, Moorehead. First row-Riste, Millard, Simpson, Cole. The tennis team gets under Way this year with Coach Dick Cole having only one veteran and seven unseasoned players making up his squad. Dar- rell Roberts, last season's number one man, got into a scholastic difficulty and was declared ineligible. Francis Bogier took over the number one spot and has been showing steady improvement. Buddy Millard, a freshman from Decatur High School, has improved steadily as the season goes on, and chances are bright for him to be an outstanding player of the Big Blue in the coming year. Nine meets are scheduled on this year's program of the lllinois Confer- ence to be held here on May 24 and 25. To open the season, the team lost to Principia and lllinois Wesleyan. Wayne University of Detroit, Michigan, came to visit Millikin on May 3. The inexperienced Millikin team was not able to break their string of sixty-four victories. lllinois College was the next opponent on the list, and they fell 5-l with our boys looking better all the time. Although a conference championship is a minute hope, with more exper- ience the squad will more than hold its own in the conference competition. Ed Keil, Bill Hammer, Francis Bogier, Tom Biste, Buddy Millard, Mark Simp- son, Bob Moorehead, and Bob Potter complete the squad. 133 Hllll HHM ,.""F'.' 9- , if xfllfjf I White, Anderson, Fryxell, Hamman, Adams, Morrissey The Big Blue's youngest athletic squad, the golf team, is by far the brightest satellite on the athletic horizon. For many years golf has been one sport that had almost been a forgotten art. Under the able coaching of Dr. B. L. Fryxell the sport in the last year has risen steadily until now it is the sport at which Millikin is favored to win its first conference championship. The team this year consists of five veterans and two freshmen, who are eligible for competition under the new conference ruling. Captain Don Hamman is the only senior, Bill Cutler and Bill Adams the juniors, lack Mor- rissey and Bill White the sophomores, and Bob Anderson and Bill Grant, the freshmen who complete the squad. The fact that the team has been able to secure Sunnyside for their prac- tice and home games is a decided improvement over past years. There is another advantage in the securing of the course as the lllinois College Con- ference Tournament is to be held there May 24-25 and this should give our golfers a boost in the tournament. With the exception of the l. C. C. meet the most important match is the one with the University of Illinois. Major letters will be awarded to members making ten points in competition. r 134 lHHEIl HHM The track team which has been woefully weak in the past few years has suddenly come to the front. Athletic Director Fuzzy Sutherd has taken over the reins of the coaching and the first two dual meets htave been victorious. The first meet was held at Carlinsville to meet Blackburn College which has in the past defeated Millikin very easily. The points were very close until the final event when Bill McCaughey won the 220 low hurdles to ring up a victory. jack Miller won the javelin and low hurdles events. The second meet saw some of the veterans of last year's squad, and the team scored a 76-45 win over McKendree College. Mclntosh in the half, Miller in the high and low hurdles, and javelin, and Hopson in the dashes, Moorehead in the 440, Douglas in the broad jump and high jump, and Mason in the pole vault were point winners. The l. C. C. meet will be held May 25, and the Big Blue will be up in the point column for the first time in many years. The squad events are as follows: joe l-lopson-100 and 220 yard dash. Lee Moorehead-440 clash and relay. Bussell Bentley-220 and 440 yard dash and relay. Gerald Brewer-l00 yard dash and high jump. Dick Ball-Discus and javelin. I-larold Ward-Discus and shotput. jack Miller-javelin, high and low hurdles. Bill McCfaughey-Low hurdles. Bob Parrish-Mile and half-mile run. Tom Richards-Broad jump and mile run. jean Mason-Pole vault and weights. joe Douglas-Broad jump and high jump. 135 -il.
