Shaiienberger Encircled by the numer- ous trees, neither campus thought nor activity is hemmed in, but reaches for ond Wide to touch Q11 portions of the globe. A gf il A small campus of unusual loveli- ness, Millikin stands high in the admi- ration and loyalty of all. The build- ings, old and new, have a quaint grace about them as they stand enfoldecl in the vines, shrubs, and trees that have become so much a part of the univer- sity that the loss of even a single one would mar the beauty. The towers of Millikin have always stood for the high aims and ideals that were set for this institution so many years ago by its founder. Since that first year, the campus itself has grown as has the personnel. Its towers are still reaching upward and will ever do so, for they are filled with those who are eager for the education found here. -..... Campus scenes that will be remembered long Within the towers there is always the hum of human activity. This past year had been no exception, in fact the university has been even more active. Additions have been made in the In- dustrial Arts Department which were the gift of Mr. Mueller to a university that Decatur has always been proud of and which has been happy to be estab- lished here. Through the help of such people strong institutions are built for the betterment of all who care to enter. -,9 i -:fy vt L b. .lhflt Q In ,. , gg. - In classroom and laboratory student participation has always shown itself consistent and strong. The labora- tories at Millikin are not limited to the science departments, but art also plays an important part in the life of nearly all students though they may not be aware of it. Our Art Department, hid- den away under the towers, does not hide its discoveries, for several times during the year the department has hung exhibits in the main halls for all the student body to enjoy. tuclents at Work J ln Competition Whether at Work or at play, cooperation among those who are together is an all im- portant factor. A sense of unity as to the goal to be obtained aids in the speed with which that goal is attained and in the quality of work used to attain it. The "Millikin Family" has always meant a sense of unity of purpose. Because of this, the members of each department know the goal toward which they are striving and move to- ward it with surety, and a pleasant sense of doing the right thing possesses each one. - -g,.a: 1' A I.

K-f : - 'fx-' if' The olcl adage of "all Work and no play" is held in high esteem by all students. Complete relaxation is an art of great mastery. Students have always been considered most capable of mastering this art to perfection at the Wrong time. There is the time and place for it, and under the trees on this campus is a better place for sleep than for study. SP1 1110 fever is not a legitimate excuse -,L . ,.'t' , 'r 1: SA if 'fm Y if Qxv' H 3 V XT l f ' ilfiflki-1' " T 'V' Informality is the keynote to cooperation The friendly informality of the students among themselves and of the faculty with the students has led to many pleasant hours both in and out of the classroom. Plays and carn- pus organizations all lead to this and to the name of "Millikin family" so fitting on campus. lt is the cooperation from all that has made each and every one of the student groups such an important factor in its own field. The con- flicts which arise and are overcome are those which build the citizens of tomorrow into more tolerant and Wiser people. Through the in- formal attitude here the students have always been able to overcome their conflicts with less strife than might otherwise occur. The Orville B. Corin Library The "Lilo" stands for books, magazines, and papers land a social gathering place to somel. The books and magazines are for the more studious minded people, While some of the magazines and the papers are 'there for the stories, the headlines, and the funnies. Presided over by Miss Allin, Miss Walker, and their staff, it is always kept in remarkable order. They seem to know exactly Where everything should be and is, and Whatis more, they will get it for you. A pleasant building with a pleasant atmos- phere, it supplies the ideal place for study and research. : ,A f FF 1 4 " ' -' H -Li. in S' Y, 4, ' 1 H1 Ga -3.11 v:- " 17- -. Q I 'f!1.+?ff ' rm- Q, .

It is with many a pleasant memory that we think of these peo- ple who have been guiding us for several years. Theirs has not always been a happy task, for they are as human as anyone. To them we owe our loyalty and our friendship. It is with great pride that we see them standing for the highest aims and ideals.

This duty fell to them as their work for the university is in connection with such things as budgets, buildings and grounds, finance and investment, and curricula. The members of this board have given up some of their time each month that this univer- sity might run smoothly and that there might be no breaks in the wheels of the machinery. They do not direct or control the policies and procedures on the campus, but they do set up the ground Work upon which these are placed. They are led by I. S. McClelland, presidentg W. H. McGaughey, vice-presidentg and R. M. Hamilton, secretary. Fo rest File Lee Boland, W. H. McG-aughey. R. M. Hamilton. Dr. Hessler. I. S. McClelland 18 President This year President Hessler celebrated his seventy-second birthday and his eighth year as head of Millikin University. ln addition to these capacities he has served the Millikin Farn- ily as a professor of chemistry and as dean. Both he and Mrs. Hessler have endeared them- selves to the university students through the years. A man of high character and noble ideals, President Hessler has done much for Millikin and its student body. It is the hope of everyone that We may long continue to look to President Hessler for leadership. 19 John C.

Fore- most among the accomplishments of the coun- cil was the work that was done getting the Stu- dent Lounge under way again. Among the other activities of the group for the year were the appointment of a new editor and business manager for the Decaturian in the middle of the year, the carnival which they sponsored last fall, the management of all the student elections, and the excellent work that was done on the school's revolving fund to get it into smooth running order. The Chapel Committee The Chapel Committee for the past year worked hard trying to obtain programs for Chapel and assembly which would prove en- joyable to the student body. Many of their choices proved most interesting and entertain- ing. Among these were the speaker for Re- ligious Emphasis Week, the Christmas pro- gram, Dr. Sacchar, the Phi Mu Alpha program as part of the many campus organization pro- grams, and the several one-act plays. The committee, a combination of faculty and stu- dent members, deserves much credit for the work that they put each year into the programs that the students take so much for granted. The Student Lounge The Student Lounge committee was at last able to obtain some action on the need for a suitable room for social activities for the stu- dents between classes. Appointed by the Stu- dent Council, Iohn Garver saw to it that the committee functioned and then reported their activities back to the Council. Through con- certed effort, a lounge was begun in the lower hall where the Supply Store was located and the latter was moved across the hall. All plans proceded nicely, and the committee felt justi- fied for their labors when the students voted to pay twenty-five cents to go to the lounge fund.

Pg W was Sf To the classes of a university goes the repu- tation of that institution. Their abilities cmd the place that they make for themselves in the world reflect back and are a credit or a discredit to it. Millikin has every right to be proud of its classes. The high ideals set by the university for its staff and students have al- ways been held in esteem by each and every class. The class officers too have proven them- selves capable and trustworthy leaders for their fellow class members.

Four years of growth and development 34 4 Q 1 I had begun for another class. As a class of 243 members, there were naturally many problems to face. An uncertain group, they began their Way through the miriad of lectures, discussions, quizzes, and exams that faced them. Little did they really know of what lay ahead, for what high school student is prepared for the ordeal of his first year in a university? With the usual freshman trepidation, they came to their first nine weeks' grades. Some survived with flying colorsg others started the second nine Weeks determined to do something about it all. At the end of the first semester, there was a definite feeling of relaxation, for the first ordeal had been passed. The second semester Went much more smoothly, and there Was even time to go out a bit for fun as well as the work. All in all it was a much happier group that approached the finals at the end of the second semester. Then suddenly it was Iune, and they looked back, startled, to see that the year had really come to an end. The partings were many and sad, but there was always the thought of meeting again the next year to renew the old friendships and to make more. 35 79 '6M1ll1k1n Daysw and uliflillikin Nights, two cour esy The old friendships were renewed the next fall, and new ones were made. Then the class started out on what proved to be a gala year. That was the year' that Ed Keil, now of the U. S. Army, was made presidentg and the year that Ethelyn Freed filled the sophomore va- cancy on the Student Council. "White Oaks" was presented in the fall of '39 and displayed the talents of Ieanne Porter who was to show her talents for drama many times during the two remaining years. Besides Ieanne a notable number of sophomores took part in the many one-act plays that were presented that year. In their second year, such people as Ethelyn Freed, Ieanne Porter, and Barbara Stoune began to work their way up on the staff of the Decaturian, While Druanne Davis, Dorothy Ford, Barbara Stoune, and Sue Webb began to work for' the Millidek. Such publications were not all that interested the members of the present senior class two years ago. lt was during this year that the 'first constructive work was done on the new student lounge which has now crystallized into an actuality. Neither was musical ability lacking in the class that far back. There were ten sophomores in the orchestra, many of whom have since distinguished themselves. Two of these who graduated this May were Remo Grua and Chet Maliris. Two years ago it was predicted that this class would bear watch- ing. The class has not failed that prediction, but seems to have gone beyond it. 36 Elmer Edwards lean Ellsworth tMrs.l Betty Fischer Warren Fisher Ilita Franltlin Ethelyn Freed ELMER EDWARDS-Fairview-Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Alpha Omega, Secretary, Treasurer, Beta Alpha, Publicity Director, President, Student Council, Cashier, Millidek, Sports Editor, Basketball, Manager, Baseball, Football.

'42 felt the need of a tlldeflt LOl1I1g6 EIS SOIJIIOIHOTCS. As juniors, those sophomores who had begun to Work the year before on the two school publications continued in that line beside branching off in other directions as well. The dramatists of the class continued to thrill the school With their abilities and gave promise of even greater things in the future. And the musicians were not found lacking in times of need. All in all the class carried on the activities that they had started the preceding year. Every organization on campus found that it had an amazing num- ber of juniors as members. Nor were they silent members, for the personnel of this class proved themselves born leaders and executives. Despite the fact that the class was becoming more and more outstanding, it was also becoming smaller and smaller. This fact gave cause for much concern among the members and the faculty, for no one seemed to know just how many of that large freshman class would be left to graduate. ln prospect of the coming year, the juniors were most prominently featured in the elections and appointments. They looked ahead to a really active year as seniors, and so Went off for another summer vacation before their final fling at school. 41 The right people could not he Of the 243 freshmen who entered Millikin in 1938, some ninety-five graduated in May of l942. lt seems like a very small percentage of that original class, but not one of that first class expected to have history take the turn of events that it did take. There were more than the ninety-five graduates Who registered as seniors in September. The number decreased as some of them were caught in the draft and as others enlisted. Regardless of, or perhaps it was because of, the decrease in their class number, those seniors who were left threw themselves into their activities with great vigor and enthusiasm. With the shortened term and no spring vacation, dispositions became or bit thin during the last month or so of school, but every thing Went off Well and according to the new schedule. Even before the end of the second semester a number of the seniors had received jobs for the coming year, and most of the rest of the class had received offers. As they graduated, those students who had been at Millikin for four happy years looked back on all the things that they had done and all the things that they had left behind them. Then, with the characteristic spirit of youth, they turned and looked ahead into the confusing World that stared them in the face and in which many of them will make a name for them- selves and the school from which they came. 42 Chester Malins Ruth Mannering Virginia Martin lean Mason Roger Merker Dale Miller CHESTER MALINS-Chicago-Phi Mu Alpha, Secretary, Treasurer, President, Band, Or- chestra, Choirg Camera Club, Track.

The class organized itself early last fall with jack Hardy as presidentg jane johnson, vice-presidentg Bettye Burgess, secretaryg and Ieanne Hanson, treasurer. Under this leadership the class had several meetings before any- thing took actual shape with regard to the annual junior Prom. How- ever, once things got started, everyone Worked feverishly to the suc- cessful end in mind. lt was decided that the dance would be held in the lllini Ballroom on April 10, With jack Coombs supplying the neces- sary rhythms. Five of the loveliest junior girls were selected to reign over the dance. From this court of Clarine Leonard, jane johnson, Harriet McDonald, Ann Norman, and Boselyn Schrnalenberger, the queen was chosen by those attending the prom. All the arrangements for the pr'om were in the hands of the officers of the class, and it was felt that they handled the matter very Well indeed. The junior Prom Was the only mass project that the class under- took as a Whole, but it Was not the only thing that distinguished the class. Many of the individual members of the class brought credit on the group by special things which they did during the year. Much of the good fortune which befell the debate squad might be attributed to the techniques of such juniors as Ieanne Hanson and Virginia Traughber. These two girls Were part of the group which jane johnson john Hardy Ieanne Hanson Bettye Burgess Vice-President President Treasurer Secretary l ,ip s 9? 52 Eileen Abbott Divernon Jacqueline Blake Chicago Bettye Burgess Mt.

Iinny Traughber did not limit her extra curricular activities just to debating, but Went out for dramatics again during the year as she had done the year before. She assisted Dr. McNabb produce the tall production, and then ably portrayed the roll of Elizabeth in "Pride and Prejudice," the spring production. Another actor of no mean ability was Creighton Lewey who portrayed characters in both major productions, in several minor plays, and Who also directed a one-act play. Clarine Leonard and Bob Parrish also displayed some dramatic ability during the year. The junior class Was able to claim another member of distinction in Rosie Schmalenberger. Rosie was president of the Student Council, and handled her duties extremely Well there. Then too she was men- tioned in "Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges" which was indeed an honor.

In the fall when class elections were held, the class selected the following officers: Bill Olson, president, Beverly Reed, vice-president, Geraldine Edler, secretaryg and Irene Eilers, treasurer. Instead of attempting to give a dance entirely alone, the sophomore class joined the freshman class and presented their joint entertainment on March 13. This was held in the gym and was most fittingly en- titled "The Patriotic Polka." Due to the combined ef- forts of the two classes, it was quite a successful event. Everyone who attended enjoyed himself to the utmost. The sophomore class was not lacking this year in dramatic talent, literary prowess, or athletic abilities. In the next two years these people and others as yet not understood will make names for themselves and for Millikin. V On Their Wfay Up -- llll I Ill , X - ii. i 1 . ' J-.2 ' , .

The usual maze of events encircled them from the moment they first thought of entering the university. Then followed registration With its ac- companying Worries, classes for the first time with new professors, and over and above all this Was rush Week for the Various Greek organizations. About the time the freshmen Were completely confused, someone thought it Was time to begin to straighten them out. Their first taste of such a policy was the Mixer held in the gym. It did seem to help, for the freshmen met a lot of people they did not even know existed, and began to get some conception of what it means to be a member of the "Mil1ikin Family." The annual election of officers brought forth the fol- lowing people: Denny Pease, Presidentg Margaret Duerr, Vice-president, and Mary Carolyn McDonald, Secretary-Treasurer. With these leaders the class kept organized, an unusual feat for so large a group. With the sophomore class they sponsored the Patriotic Polka in the gym, and in other Ways, participation in cam- pus organizations, have led to the assumption that there are a number of members of this class Who Will bear Watching for outstanding abilities.

Thirty-eight freshmen and 35 upper classmen kept Mrs. Walker chugging up and down the halls at a fairly regular pace, Farrie Hanson as resident nurse turned on and off that charmin' smile depend- ing on the severity of her patients' headaches. A form of Student Council was organized for the purpose of planning parties, directing and maintaining discipline tit and when it was necessaryl. The Council was headed by leanne Porter as President and Eleanor Ann Schroeder, Secretary: members were Irene Eilers, Betty Matthews, Mid Smith, Mari Funk, Dellie G-aetjens, Mary Wayne, Gerry Edler, and Lois Wachter. Hall girls Will long remember the trials, tribu- lations, and success associated with the Frosh Frolic, Basket Ball dance, Christmas Chapel, and the Spring Picnic-. 72 i VH THRU The Conservatory is both a part of our university and a separate school. At one time begun in one room of the Liberal Arts building, the Conservatory is now even larger than the Liberal Arts School. It is now the seat from which we obtain a number of tal- ented people. It is in the Conservatory that the members of the band, orchestra, and choir hold their individual and separate practice hours. It is from this building that a rnedly of sounds eminates each spring and during the summer months when it is necessary to open the Windows. Those enjoying these sounds eagerly await the Warmer months, While others shudder at the mere thought. However the Conservatory deserves a great deal of credit for its organization and management. lt is an efficiently and capably set up institution. Conservatory 74 Choir Millilcin developed its most outstanding choir dur- ing the fall and Winter of 1941 and 1942. The choir itself was larger in size and yet its reactions were per- fectly timed as if each of the members Was only a part of the whole gigantic thing. The credit for the Won- derful things that have happened to the choir should fall on the shoulders of a man new to our campus, Carl Van Buskirk. On December 18, the Choir gave its first concert of the school year, and they were enthusiastically re- ceived by all present. There were a nice number of people there for the first concert, for it had been evi- dent from the first chapel that a change was being Wrought in the choir. The spring concert was even better attended due to the favorable comments fol- lowing the fall concert. Also in the spring, just before their second concert, as many members of the choir as could possibly go went on tour of southern Illinois. They sang in such places as Litchfield, Lovinaton, Mattoon, Nolcomis, Pana, Sullivan, and East St. Louis. The tour was most successful as was the entire year. 75 IOSE ECHANIZ Director Urchestra The Millikin Orchestra concerts have always been well attended by students and town's people alike and for good reason. The orchestra has always been corn- posed of capable musicians ably directed. Under the leadership of Mr. Echaniz, the orchestra has given a fall and a spring concert each year. There Were several factors apparently Working against the orchestra during the past year. In the first place the number of members was less than in former years, because the draft took a number of the regular members. A second factor was the excessive demand made upon Mr. Echaniz for concert tours. During his absences the orchestra practiced under the baton of Remo Grua. Despite these things, the or- chestra concerts were as excellent as they have been in preceding years. From the full orchestra were taken two small stu- dent orchestras to play, one each, for the two Town and Gown plays. The first of these, which played for "George Washington Slept Here," was under the guid- ance of Remo Grua. The second, for "Pride and Prejudice," was directed by George Ecklund. 75 X . ef, XX , 15' XHX s,., X-L--, V X I V, RJ W tr '-'. y Sf-X. e xxx X Mmlmis cry x ii ,qi r lt : " . ,J Q t .- Xl V if-P l.,'J'- -A t f -f. ef t . - .f 1 f ' " -ll ,544 ,f 'i '- 1' 'XS milf gr- V 1 IDM' J r f my ll e it rl The primary function of the band is one of service- to the school, the students, and to the community. Throughout the years of its organization, the Millikin Band has performed this service. During the past year the band played at all the foot- ball and basketball games which were played in De- catur, gave three formal concerts, and participated in civic functions. The stirring martial music of the band, the concert numbers which they played, and the light comic pieces all added a note of gaiety to Whatever the occasion Where the band played. The band has served the students by giving them an opportunity to hear good music. To the music stu- dents the band has served as a laboratory-an oppor- tunity to conduct and arrange being afforded any- one enrolled in the music classes. Under the leadership of Mr. Frank Prindl the band has become a Well. recognized campus organization. No home game Would be complete if the band Was not present to play the loyalty songs so dear to the hearts of all Millikinites, students and toWn's people alike, Mr. Prindl and the band have Worked during the past year exceptionally hard, and have received a vote of praise from their supporters by their attend- ance at the formal concerts. FRANK PRINDL Director 77 ,f , ,nj J' A533 "' 9.15 1. -gf 2 " -a XL! r ,f . ffrfgif Phi Mu Alpha Phi Mu Alpha rang the bell this year by presenting the most successful assembly that has ever been pre- sented at Millikin. lt was a musical variety show which consisted of everything from boogy-woogy to Rhapsody in Blue. This type of program had long been in their minds, and things took shape at the end of the first semester. The group have still further plans, which include topping the present program each year, but better yet, giving the present program at several army camps. lt can not help but raise the morale. The Phi Mu's also went on their annual Christmas carol tour, singing at all the sorority houses, Aston Hall, President Hessler's, and even for Dean Miller who was at that time in Macon County Hospital. Initiation was held on April twelfth for the new, up and coming, pledges. This was followed by a more- than-successful picnic. Sigma Alpha Iota During the year the S.A.I.'s decided that they would like to become better acquainted with their alums. ln order to do this musicals were planned which both groups could enjoy, and to help things along, these were held in the homes of several alums. Among these were the homes of Mrs. Robert Mueller and Mrs. Ridgley. For two days, April tenth and eleventh, the chapter was visited by a national officer, Mrs. Lorsch. Then on the twenty-eighth of the same month the group held initiation for the fourteen who had been pledged dur- ing Mrs. Lorsch's visit. At this same time the senior dinner was held to climax all the activities. During the spring months some time during each meeting was taken up with the plans for a joint spring formal with the Phi Mu Alphas. It was felt that both groups could end the year in this different but inter- esting way. '78 H . In 5 . . X' '- v v -' 4.

Millikin students have proven themselves no exception to this state- ment. It is well that they have not, for a well- rounded personality demands participation in organizations outside of classes. There are a number of organizations on campus, but the number and type are not such that a student can participate in only one such group. It is felt that a student will receive more if he participates in more than one organiza- tion, but that he should not be a member of too many or he will not be able to give any- thing ,to any of them. f lklfv Fa 39: - 1 Pi Mu Theta Not everyone knows that Pi Mu Theta, honorary organization for senior women, has existed at Millikin since November 13, 1912 and is therefore one of the oldest organizations on the campus. Each spring junior gir'ls are elected to membership on the basis of high scholarship and extra-curricular activities. Those chosen last spring Were Betty Birmingham, Dorothy Br'oWn, Druanne Davis, Eunice McKee, and Bette Snyder. One of the main aims of Pi Mu Theta is to give a scholarship each year to a deserving junior girl, on the basis of her need, scholarship, and partici- pation in extra-curricular activities. To raise this scholarship fund Pi Mu Theta sold green ribbons to the fr'eshman girls last fall, sold 'mums at the Home- coming garne, and sponsored a reversal tea dance in March. Another aim of the group this year has been to become affiliated with the national organization, Mortar Board. The girls Were kept busy filling out the necessary papers and taking the preliminary steps to be recognized ever since the school was recognized by A.A.U. and A.A,U.W. How successful their en- deavors were remains to be seen. OFFICERS: President-Druanne Davis Vice-President-Eunice McKee Secretary-Bette Snyder Treasurer-Betty Birmingham Sergeant-at-Arrns- Dorothy Brown 82 Alpha Omega Alpha Omega, senior men's honorary, had a mem- bership of seven this past year. Those men, chosen for their scholarship and campus activities for their first three years on campus, were Charles Br'adley, Elmer Edwards, Remo Grua, Dan Hendricks, Frank Lesko, Iohn McClure, and Robert Sylvester. Last fall these seven men set about to sell little green caps to the unsuspecting freshmen fellows. The money raised from this sale helped to form the scholarship that the organization gives in the spring of every year to their most deserving member. To quote one of the members, the scholarship is given to the "man most likely to succeed." Initiation for new members takes place in the spring of each year. Then in the fall the group meets, elects officers, and sets up its meeting time and place. This year the members were so active in other campus organizations that their meetings were few and far between, but they did keep the group together as a unit. When the members of Alpha Omega graduate each year, the campus feels the loss of those leaders.

They are chosen for their scholastic average and for their achievement in college. Each fall there is a special assembly given over to the Kappa society. At that time those seniors who have had that famous 3.5 average tor the preceding three years are called to the stage to be made pledges of Kappa. If those same people maintain that average throughout their senior year, their initiation into Kappa is announced at commencement. They are not ini- tiated however until that evening at the annual Kappa society dinner. The dinner and meeting Which follows it constitute the only regular meeting of the group each year. Since the members are not initiated until after graduation, all active members are alumni of the school where they got their keys. 84 Roselyn Schmcrlenberger Betty Fischer Bette lane Snyder Virgil Wagner 1 N H 1 liepitpsmiateitive Stiuttlfeiits lust what is a representative student? What does he represent, or whom? Those are quesitons that deny answers, for We each have an idea of what we con- sider a representative student. Therefore, it is left to the individual reader to decide what these students stand for. In connection with the Dean and a cross section of the faculty of Millikin, the l94Z staff of the Millidek chose the people pictured above to have their pic- tues on a special page in the book. ln a small part they were chosen for the things that they have done on the campus in the last four years. Two of these students were juniors, howeverg but they were se- lected because of the outstanding place that they have taken on the campus. The other two, seniors, have been well known on the campus for many years. 85 Xml ,X 2 T 1' 11 . lllw ., . . f . A ' Phi-Bi-Chem Phi-Bi-Chem was originated in l936 as a society to represent all of the science departments as suggested by its name. The purpose of the organization has been somewhat two-fold: first to discuss problems of all the sciences, and secondly to give the science students a chance for social activity among a group with com- mon interest. Beside the social activity of having two banquets, the club this year had many interesting speakers: Dr. Godcharles, "The Greek Concept of the Atom," Mr. Ploenges, "Science and Math in Living Coastal Guns," and Dr. Palmer, "Helium ll" were among them. Under the able leadership of Dr. Kleinberg the club became a member of the national organization Sigma Zeta which makes it possible tor the organization to be a coed group next year. Tau Chi Pi Tau Chi Pi, a relatively new organization on the campus, held its meetings on Wednesday evenings during the past year. ln the fall six girls were taken into the organization. They were Margaret Flewelling, Velda Gerber, Elizabeth Larson, Betty Seiler, Florence Solomon, and Virginia Wisegarver. Under the leadership of Mildred Wentworth, presi- dent, Harriet Bolz, Vice-presidentg Barbara Gilman, Secretary, and Ruth Gragg, Treasurer the club's meet- ings proved quite interesting. The outside speaker' for the year was Miss Watts, Head of the Stenographic Department at the Illinois Iowa Power Co. With Mrs. Hacker as advisor, the organization strove throughout the year to keep up on secretarial practices. 86 gf?

The staff itself was most cooperative in its work, although it was not amazing that there were times when they did not quite know what was the end they were working toward. The staff itself was chosen from those who applied in the fall. Those interested in work- ing on the book were asked to write out their qualifications and to name the section of the book that they would like to work on. During the summer Martin Shallenberger spent a great deal of time in Indianapolis at the engravers. As a result of his work the working dummy was ready for Sue Webb to begin on when she returned to school from Baltimore. The dummy, as worked out in the summer, was followed almost to the letter, al- though there were several changes made due to personal opinions.

DER DEUTSCHE VEREIN Der Deutsche Verein ended a very success- ful year with the International Ball. Due to the War the annual plans for lnternational Night were cancelled and social activities were carried on along other lines. A party was held at Christmas time and the club showed moving pictures of Germany. LA SOCIEDAD ESPANOLA La Sociedad Espanola gave up their part in the annual lnternational Night due to the War. To make up the lack of social activities, La Sociedad had a Christmas party and also an Espanola terulia for its members. Together with the other two language clubs also sponsored an International Ball on March 20 at the Con- servatory. 92 gf, JE, ,iw '-S., -sv ,g " f - , ' " 123155, E ' - L jg .sa 1 r V3 X sw?

First they prepared their speeches on one question, and almost as soon as national changed the question, the squad lost three of its members. Eight were left to debate the question "Resolved: that the democracies should form a federation to estab- lish and maintain the eight Roosevelt-Churchill principles." These eight people teamed up for the state tournament with Iohn Garver and 'Frank Nichols on the men's affirmative, Dick Golz and Iohn Hinton as men's negative, Ieanne Hanson and Mary Lawson as Women's affirmative, and Ieanne Porter and Virginia Traughber as womens negative. Practice de- bates were held at Normal and Charleston. The annual Brown Debate was held March 26.

There has to be a certain amount of social life to round out the training that is obtained in the class- rooms. To fully appreciate others. they must be met on a basis other than that of scholar- ship. We are extremely proud of the friendly spirit that exists here among our social fra- ternities. 1 ik .sq 1 r ff--M--. I ! it V 1 'ff VQ. v f ng., . l V 5 ,- Ji. . .

Panhellenic Council Panhellenic, the organization of the representatives of the five Greek letter sororities, has done much this year to promote friendship and cooperation on the I.M.U. campus. A new form of rushing pamphlet was published last summer to aid the incoming freshmen, giving them full information on the rules and regula- tions as Well as a schedule of the rushing events for the fall semester. The largest project of the year that the group undertook was the Panhellenic Ball which opened the winter formal season. This was held at the Illini Ballroom on November 8. The Panhellenic Sing was held on April 24, in Albert Taylor Hall. Because of the emergency the length of the program was shorter than usual, however it did not effect the impressiveness or the beauty which has always been maintained. 102 l,-5 -Y FX if ,- .1 ?

Beginning the year on the right foot, the Homecoming queen was an Alpha Chi-lean Blakinger. Another girl to come into prominence at the beginning of the year was Betty Barnes, for she was one of the cheerleaders who led Millikin on to victory. Two of the seniors were mentioned in "Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities." Iean Blakinger was one of these, for beside be- ing Homecoming queen, she Was very active in the Home Economics club. The other of these was Betty Birmingham Who Was one of the honored members of Pi Mu Theta and a Kappa Key wearer. The Alpha Chis had a Well-rounded year in all the phases of college life. They added their bit in W.A.A., S.A.I., Tau Chi Pi, Conant, Home Economics Club, the romance language clubs, Orchestra, Choir, and Band. Alpha Chi Omega OFFICERS President: Betty Birmingham Vice-President: lane Iohnson Secretary: Roselyn Davis Teasurer: Virginia Wisegarver QM lr lliul11rr:1r'lul lrzmsl Alpha Chi Omega Socializing was a successful item in the Al- pha Chi calendar of events. They traveled on a "Chattanooga Choo Choo" party from a cannibal pledge dance to a dignified college dance with other unusual parties given at va- rious points. To carry on the Alpha Chi traditions, they had their annual musical chapel in the spring. Then as the end of school drew near, they presented the May musical honoring the Mc- Dowell Star Colony in Massachusetts. The final event of the year was the picnic given in honor of their seniors.

First of all there was the Homecoming Week-end when the Tri Delts came through with flying colors, for they Won first place in house decora- tions. Also in the Homecoming court were five Delta girls, Dorothy Bickle, Clarine Leon- ard, Audrey Pensinger, Roselyn Schmallen- berger, and Marion Vick. This year the Tri Delts have not only been active in intramural sports but in other campus activities as Well. Roselyn Schrnalenloerger was president of the Student Council, and Ern- ily Groves was president of W.A.A. Not only was Roselyn on the Student Gov- ernment, queen of the lnterfraternity Ball, but she and her sorority sister Ethelyn Freed were 106 Row l: Grove, Bickel, B, Taylor, M.

One of the added features of the new colo- nial home is the recreation room Where many eventful exchange parties with the other sor- orities and fraternities were held throughout the year. As a last farewell, a climax to their social activities, the Tri Delts gave a pansy breakfast and luncheon in honor of their seniors. -A E 'H' 1 1 'i ' n 1 fi ' -5- f , , ,M , V If ,..

Hav- ing won the Homecoming float trophy last year, the girls strove doubly hard for it again this last fall, and were rewarded for their ef- forts, for the trophy is still in the Pi Phi House. At the Homecoming Ball, Phyllis Bear and Mary Morrow were attendants to the queen. In November the Pi Phis thought that it was time that something was done for their fathers, other than the Parent's Tea in the spring, so a Father's Day was planned. Having started the ball rolling, the campus took up the idea, and November 15 was set aside as the day for as many fathers as possible to come to the foot- ball game and then be entertained by their re- spective daughters and sons. Thirty-five fath- ers met at the Pi Phi house after the game for a dinner planned particularly for them. In the fall class elections many Pi Phis re- Pi Beta Phi ceived offices, two freshmen, one sophomore, two juniors, and one senior. Iust after the class elections the fall play was announced. Vir- ginia Traughber assisted Dr. McNabb in stag- ing the production while Beverly Reed took part in it, lane Crawford managed the proper- ties and Betty Fischer the costumes. When the announcement as to who had been pledged to Kappa came out, the Pi Phis were very proud of Bette Snyder. That wasn't the only honor that Bette received, for she was mentioned in "Who's Who in American Col- leges and Universities" as were Druanne Da- vis, Betty Fischer, and Sue Webb. The spring play, "Pride and Prejudice," brought to light all the hidden talents of such Pi Phis as Virginia Traughber and Bever'ly Reed. On the managing staff of the play were Ann Norman, costumes, Betty Fischer, patron- age, and lane Crawford, publicity. At Easter several alums came back to visit OFFICERS President: Betty Fischer Vice-President: lacqueline Blake Secretary: Mary Margaret Lively Treasurer: Betty Ann Bailey fn 1' ' ll AJ: 1 1 f' .iffy Pi Beta Phi the chapter and a party was given in their honor. They were Dorothy Dashner, Ianet Hamilton, and Harriet Overbeck. Dorothy and lanet came back from Boston and Baltimore, respectively. April 25 saw another celebration of Found- er's Day for the Pi Phis. This event, a luncheon with the alums, helped to make that whole weekend a gala affair, for the Panhellenic Sing was the night before. The Iune breakfast, held in May this year, was the final event of a most interesting year for all the Pi Phis. The breakfast was given in honor of the graduating seniors as has been the custom for many years. Row 1: Shuck, Peters, Osgood, Glover, Frech, Duerr, K. Cline, M. Hayes. Row 2: D.

Things got going with a bang when Ag and Suz descend- ed on Egghead with a blitzkrieg of "Hiyahsl" and nearly knocked out one of her pearly Whites. The Terrible Trio drooped through Rush Week with sagging eyelids because they were spending sleepless nights swapping surn- mer stories and hearing about Ag's trip to the Theta Convention in Ashville, North Carolina. By the time Rush Week was over, Rosie Solo- mon, Flora Spittler, and Mary Anne Harnpson had joined the tribe. Pledges were honored With a whoop and holler' barn dance plus the usual ride on a hay-rack pulled by two ancient equines. Millikinites joined the chain gang when they came to the Prison Dance, the Theta U pledge tea dance. The Walls of As- ton Hall's Rec Room were covered to look like the be-doodled cell walls in cartoons. Homecoming was rnost memorable for the slumberless party-the night the girls Worked 110 Sealed: Solomon, Schlcchter, Edler, Collie, Flenniken. Standing: Calhoun, Spitler, Wachter. a twelve hour shift to decorate the float. The Christmas formal waltzing was done in the Venetian Room of Hotel Orlando where decora- tions followed a blue and silver theme. The girls gave themselves a rootin-tootin housewarming when they opened their chapter rooms in the Kia Ora Apartments with Mrs. Frank Burn as chaperone. Then carne Hell Week, a slap-happy round of devilment under the supervision of the three-man Gestapo of Calhoun, Schlachter, and Edler. The Thetas invited their pals from the other Greek sororities to trot a polka or two at their Lollipop Limp in February, and the next event on the calendar was their May breakfast where the girls sat behind egg-head caricatures of themselves. They signed off a year full of fun at the spring formal, planned for them by their honored alums. l' 'I l f . .Q 'Q lt 4 , , , , 'bf 111 Indeed the Zetas had their share in the carn- pus activities for the year. Never before had Millikin had a drum majorette like Ramona Chapman who well deserves praise for her in- spiration in our "on to victory" drive. Barbara Stoune, an outstanding girl and worthy of individual mention, served as vice- president of the senior class and was news editor of the Dec. Bobby was also another of the Millikin students to be listed in "Who's Who in American Universities and Colleges." Bebe Dean, another individualist, was feature editor of the Dec and co-chairman of the pat- ronage committee for the Town and Gown plays. Throughout the year Nelda Ray served as vice-chairman of the German club. lt seems as if the Zeta house was kept spark- ling with diamonds this year. There were three girls whose left hands sparkled appeal-- ingly. They were Frances Minor fLahnierl, E. Lee Pigott, and Barbara Stoune. Zeta Tau Alpha OFFICERS President: Frances Minor Vice-President: Elizabeth Lee Pigott Secretary: Wilma Dougherty Treasurer: Eloise Scott ft.. xx Zeta Tau Alpha The Panhellenic Sing in April afforded the Zetas an excellent opportunity to do justice to the new Zeta song. Harriet Shriver composed it and introduced it at this time.

To wind up a very successful social year, the Zeta seniors were entertained with a dinner in their honor. Row 1: Stoune, E. Scott, Pigott, Minor, Dean, Dougherty, Ray.

It has instituted a number of reforms scholastically and has laid definite plans concerning a War time basis for the fraternities. The Council, with Phi Mu Alpha, sponsored an all-fraternity dance on Feburary second at the Illini Ballroom with Irv Gibsorfs band from Purdue University furnish- ing the music. The informality of the sweater dance promoted good fellowship all around, 114 Ai Z?

They displayed their newly decorated dwell- ing with an open-house tea. The pledge dance was next on their social calendar and was fol- lowed by various exchange parties, house dances, and formals. The Delta Sigs seem to be the athletes of the campus. To justify this they were well rep- resented on both the gridiron and basketball floor.

In addition to their athletic prowess the Delta Sigs also have executive ability, for three of the four class presidents were Delta Sigs. The three "prexies" were Paul Scott, Iohn Hardy, and Denny Pease. Dave Stevens, Paul Scott, and Iohn Garver also served on the Student Council. Last but not least there's Virg Wagner-Milli- kin's "B.M.O.C."-who is next year's football captain and was the Karnpus King of the Pan- hellenic Ball. In his court of honor were two of his brothers, Ioe Douglass and Iohn Tafling- er. And Roger Merker is another of those Who's Whoers. The spring formal on May l6 at Sunnyside country club was the last social event of the year for the "burr heads." 'W A- ,i X 1 -1---fl -4 .

Then at another time the house served as a gambling casino, the "ISS" Club. As an S.A.E. tradition of long standing the spring initiation was held in the Levere Me- morial Chapter in Evanston on March seventh. At the Founders Day banquet on March 9, the Memorial Library installed in memory of Otto Gravenhorst was dedicated. The annual spring weekend plans were a matter of much concern to the chapter. Then as a final farewell to their graduates the chap- ter gave a Senior Dinner in their honor. Row l: Wilcox, Smart, Haley, McConnell, D. McKee, Baird, Hinton, Parkinson.

Its members displayed an un- usual number of talents along various lines. In the executive field there Was Bill Olsen, president of the sophomore class. Also in this field were Creighton Lewey and Don Lobdell, presidents of two of the romance language clubs. As for the literary field there was the good Work of "Doc" Iohnson on the Decaturian the first semester. The T.K.E.'s felt the loss of "Doc" when he transferred at the end of the first semester. Also on the Dec staff was ferry Reece who became business manager at the beginning of the second semester. In the field of dramatics several of the boys distinguished themselves. Creighton Lewey really did his share, what with producing cz 120 Bowl Christman, G. Hanson, Hull, Strain, Wells, Irngrund, Linn, Volmer. Row 2 W. Owens, Wakeman, Whitacre, Ousley, Turner, Atz, R.

Charlie Graham and Bob Leake also appeared in several productions. The chapter began its rather interesting year with a Harvest Hop in November which proved to be a lot of fun for all. The formal dinner in December at the Decatur Club was a grand success, but the skating party in February was an hilarious affair with a laugh on nearly everyone who got out on the floor. The boys ended up their year with the annual spring formal also held at the Decatur club. lt was no wonder that the social activities of the club were such a success since Charlie Graham was the year's social chairman. Beside being so- cial chairman for the T.K.E.'s, Charlie was co- chairman of the Inter-fraternity Ball which also gave evidence of his abilities. An up and coming group, the boys are looking forward to another good year next year. ' Tau Kappa Epsilon 121 OFFICERS President: Robert Atz Vice-President: Charles Graham Secretary: Marshall Turner Treasurer: Dick Morthland Independents The lndependents, one of the largest social groups on the campus, are known to all as the lndees. They are organized to promote goodwill and to improve the social, scholastic, athletic, and religious activities among students and alurns. The group started their activities with an all-school get-acquainted dance. At the carnival which followed this, they sponsored a penny pitching game at which some of the lucky people won. Three dances spon- sored by this group followed in close succession. These were the Halloween Dance on October 31, the Thanks- giving Dance on November 8, and the one on Novem- ber 29. The Homecoming banquet was held at Westminister Church where Bob Wilson, as Master of Ceremonies, welcomed back the alums. President and Mrs. l-lessler and Dr, and Mrs, Kiefer were guests. A glittering Christmas tree hung with candy canes was the center of attraction at the Christmas party held in the gym on December 12. Beside the fun of dancing, the group was well entertained by the ping pong game between Mr. Mills and Dr. Robinson. The Easter Chapel service presented by the lndees was one of the outstanding programs. Credit should go to Sue lane Wasson for her efforts. The Review said, "The Independents as a cosmopolitan group had the proper spirit, individually and collectively, to combine their talents so closely that they added richly to the school year." More dances were held during February, March, and April. On May first the group sponsored the last big all-school dance, to which it seemed the whole school carne. To follow this was the annual lndee picnic in Fairview Park and other Wiener roasts also held there. In the Intramurals lndee men won first in basketball, first in the badminton, doubles, and third in touch football. The women tied for second in soccer and took third in basketball and bowling.

Vernon 21-U. Led by Virg Wagner, left halfback, the Big Blue scored three touchdowns. Highlights were Carl Hunts 45 yard return of an inter- cepted pass, Ed. Zachery's kicking of the extra points, and Virg Wagner's fine running. Unscored upon the Big Blue rolled over the Red and Black of Monmouth College 13-O. The highlights of this rnud played game were Carl Hunt's interception of a Monmouth pass for the first touchdown and versatile Virg Wagner's hard driving for the final score. The fine block- ing of the Big Blue line started showing in this game. The third victory for I.M.U. was the white- wash of Illinois College 33-O. For this first home game Hunt's fast open field running, Wagner's kicking and passing, the fine back- field motion, and the unexpected showing of the second team proved most exciting. Continuing their victory march the Big Blue gridders rolled over Knox College at Gales- burg 45-7. Those seven points represented the first and only touchdown scored by Milli- kin opponents. Before the biggest homecoming crowd of the. history of Millikin, the Big Blue gained its fiftln victory of the season over the highly praised Illinois Wesleyan team 27-U. Wagner played 15 his usual brilliant game of running and block- ing and made a spectacular 90 yard run only to have it called back. ln getting up I.M.U.'sl twentieth win against twelve losses in the se- ries, Hunt, Dahm, and Wagner were the big guns. The Big Blue, now considered as the great- est "Little College Team," thumped Charles- ton Eil-O. The Millikin gridders rolled up nine touchdowns, five conversions, and ia safety for the afternoon's total. Every man on the squad played a fine game. When the varsity traveled to Naperville and edged out North Central 6 to O, they encount- ered their toughest opposition of the seasson. Those six points were made by Wagner in ct last quarter touchdown. Outplayed in the first half on a mud soaked field, I.M.U. rallied to play the brand of ball they were noted for, with Dahrn, Hunt, Wagner, and Zachery set- ting the pace. Playing the final game of the season, Iames Millikin trounced a highly rated Bed team from the North 51 to 3. After the first three minutes of play, Millikin was the whole show. The Big Blue team played championship ball, with Virg Wagner playing his greatest game of the season. Hats off to the most successiul season I.M.U. has enjoyed in many a year.

This tourna- ment is sponsored each year by the W.A.A. for college Women in Illinois. Last year lean Simcox and Frances Spence Were runners up in the doubles contest While Emily Diller was runner up in the singles con- test. Their games gave Millikin three of the six cups offered. There were nine schools entered this year: Southern Illinois Normal, Eastern lllinois Nor- mal, Wheaton College, Elmhurst College, Prin- cipia, University of Illinois, North Central, llli- nois State Normal University, and Chicago Teacher's College. The girls from Millikin who opposed these teams were: Charlotte Caldwell, Emily Diller, Virginia Freck, Adele Gaetjens, lsabelle Hershey, Lois Long, Mary Caroline Mc- Donald, Ioanne Patterson, lean Simcox, and Frances Spence. So many points are given each year for par- ticipation in the intramural activities sponsored by W.A.A. This year four' seniors are to re- ceive jackets for 1500 points or more, Betty Fischer, Emily Grove, lean Simcox, and Bar- bara Stoune, Thoseto receive a white for lUOO points this year areg Betty Birming- ham, Betty Fischer, Barbara Gilman, Emily Grove, Roselyn Schmallenberger, lean Simcox, and Barbara Stoune. Some of these girls re- ceived their White last spring. Each fall the W.A.A. plans its activity season in advance. This year soccer, deck tennis, bas- ketball, volleyball, bowling, soft ball, and ten- nis were offered for the competitive sports. This athletic program was as popular this year as it has been in the past, and it is expected to continue in the years to come. 1' H us e J 'WW V" Ci "H WW ' "W: W D.

The first meeting of the 1941-42 schedule was a Wiener roast held in September at Camp Kiwanis. Soccer started the intramural activities for the club and was closely followed by deck tennis, bas- ketball, volleyball, and bowling in which lean Simcox was high bowler with 165. ln March the basketball players crowded into a bus and went oft to the traditional MacMurray Playday. May 8 and 9 saw the thirtieth annual tennis tournament here. lt was the most successful event of the yearg for beside last year's stars Emily Diller, Adele Gaetjens, Iean Simcox, and Frances Spence, there were such up and coming players as Charlotte Caldwell, DeeDee Frech, Isabel Hershey, and Lois Long. Prob- ably the original idea was to toughen up the tennis players, but anyway toothbrushes were rolled into blankets on April 18 and taken back to Camp Kiwanis for an overnight camping trip. The results were a good time for every- one as was had on every W.A.A. outing. 132 marked a successful year for lV..A,.A. 1? W'.A.A. Girl Chosen by the officers of W.A.A. as the girl most outstanding and most typifying the ideals of the organization, Betty Fischer was the W.A.A. gir'l of the year. Betty Was chosen from the list of eligible senior girls. Eligibility depended upon whether the girl was a mem- ber of W.A.A. and Whether she had at least her first letter. Qualities such as personality, leadership, Work in W.A.A., scholarship, extra- curricular activities other than W.A.A., and sportsmanship were carefully considered be- fore the girls came to their decision. Betty has been an ardent Worker in W.A.A. and out of it in other campus activities and has been The officers for W.A.A. this year were Emily Grove, Presidentg Betty Fischer, Vice-President, Adele Gaetjens, Secretaryg and Roselyn Schmalenberger, Treasurer. To them and to "Dor" McClure go the praise and credit for the fine meetings and activities of the year. The cooperation that Was obtained for the intra- mural games should be attributed to the intra- mural managers of the various groups.

Then Millikin won its second conference battle from Augustana, but that was only after a stiff fight. A last quarter rally by Earl Buse, Iohnny Taflinger, and Virg Wagner helped the Big Blue to win 42-36. Millikin played its third conference game against its oldest rival, lllinois Wesleyan. After a sluggish, poorly-contested first half, the Blues came back in the second half to win 45-38. Millikin lost a thrilling game to North Central 41-39. In another closely-contested game Millikin defeated lllinois College 43-38. The Big Blue then went on to trim North Cen- tral 40-33. At half time Millikin was leading 33-23, a lead which was never headed. ln the initial period of the game, the Millikin cagers started as if they meant business, and they did. The Big Blue climbed another notch in the conference by defeating Illinois Wesleyan 57-37. Then completing a weekend trip of 500 miles, Millikin played Lake Forest, and a jinx was broken as the Big Blue downed the Gold Coasters 53-42. Millikin continued in its Winning stride by downing Augustana and taking undisputed possession of the lllinois Conference title. The score of that all-im- portant game Was 50-37. Hats off to Captain Iohnny Taflinger, Earl Buse, Virg Wagner, Bill White, and Don Wilt. They Won them when they Were needed, show- ing a true Millikin fighting spirit. ,, Qt f ll' I The Big Blue played WM Q Qu fp, N011-Conference Basketball Games Millikin came from behind in the second half to successfully launch its basketball season by trimming Eastern Teachers of Charleston 33-27. Then traveling to Minneapolis, they encount- ered both blond giants of the north and were White-Washed 55-19. With every man hitting his stride, the Big Blue next defeated Scott Field 56-47. Indiana Central from Indianapolis was next, and they gave the Millikin cagers a very convincing lesson in Hoosier finesse, win- ning 53-33. Playing St. Ambrose of Davenport and St. Ioseph, Millikin came out on the long end 51-39 and 43-40 respectively. The Big Blue lost its return game with Eastern 38-37, thus ending a none too successful season with non- conference foes. rf," 'll ' . rf '.'," ' , ' . wx' f 1 4 'Q-Qs!

With Eddie Dahm and Rog Mer- ker in the outfield, there was not only small chance of hitting one past them, but there was also the added power at the plate that Millikin, has lacked so often. The infield proved to be a problem with Ed Zachry the only returning man, however he had many promising young first year men to work with. The Big Blue had eight games on their schedule. They were two games each with Charleston, Illinois College, and Illinois Wesleyan, and one game each with Augustana and Lake Forest. Striving to equal and surpass the record made last year of losing only two games, the Big Blue base- ball team demanded much attention from their first game throughout the season. 1942 Season May 2-Charleston, there May 9 lllmois College here May 5-Illinois Wesleyan, May l5 Illinois Wesleyan there 139 Next yeaifs Varsity will I a Freshman Football. Following an intensive early fall drilling, the freshman team played the Big Blue in a prac- tice game and were given a thorough picture of how to play college football. The varsity took this game 61-6. With this still bristling under their skin, the Little Blue went on to play Illinois Wesleyan and Illinois College, tying both teams O-U.

This was the last game of the season for these boys who are Well Worth attention next year. ll 141 Though not receiving outstandinff renown, the Track With loe Douglass, Chet Malins, Bill Travis, Perry Mclntosh, fohn Votrain, and lack Mc- Gorray as the returning lettermen, Millikin track supporters looked forward to a fine sea- son. This was already evidenced When Chet Malins took a third in the North Central relays and a first in the Illinois Tech meet in the quar- ter mile. Vic Blackwell took a third in the North Central Relays and a second at lllinois Tech in the pole Vault, while loe Douglass took a fourth at North Central for his broad jumping. With this start it was held in high hopes that the team would bring many more honors to Millikin before the year was over. t Ki- X 5 -5 , B l' iz?- ' ' 'f ' Golf The l942 golf squad, with only three return- ing lettermen from last year's successful squad, turned for support to the many prospects who came out for practice from the first sunny day throughout the second semester of the year. The mainstays from last year were Bill Grant, Boyd Holecek, and Bill White. Being seasoned men in the competitive part of the sport, these three bore the brunt of the two games that Mil- likin played with Charleston, Illinois College, and Illinois Wesleyan. Tennis There were twelve candidates out for the tennis squad early this spring. These were in addition to Elmer Major and Sol Rosenberg who began playing for Millikin last year. They were furnished ample competition throughout their entire schedule which included Charles- ton, Illinois College, Illinois Wesleyari, and North Central. Due to bad weather the team got a late start with their outdoor practice, but from the start the outlook was most promising and much was expected from them. 142 rms have been notewei thv in their own rights.

The things that are usually put there are those which just don't seem to go any- where else. The feature section of this book was compiled with a definite thought in mind. In these pages were put the campus queens. the advertise- ments of our loyal supporters and subscribers, the campus calendar of events. and the student roll. Also placed here were several pages of snapshots which were turned into the staff dur- ing the year. 3 'Qu , I"-.V 1 .X 1' X fv I '1 fc ,,y,-JF?-. ,M U ,- run L-W, '5-nv" f ba' W5 .

Rah! Rah! Rah! Student Council! They're trying to mend the gals' trouble about Friday nights. Now that the faculty is sessioning in regard to Friday nights, keep you fingers crossed for Good Luck! International Night was fun! Oui, Si, etc. A great event-the City Panhellenic Luncheon-the Tri Delts received the scholarship cup. Oh boy, We can yawn now with an excuse. lt isn't autumn. More "White Wabbits" at the S.A.E. dance for the Alpha Chis. There is hidden artistic talent at the S.A.E. house. The Neal-Grua recital seems the start of a series of excellent recitals from the Conservatory. Sophomore Exams! A sad time. More exams, but this time relieved by the lndee Easter Pro- gram in Chapel. Yes, We're trying our best to get in all our back papers. lt must be a vacation. Hardly anyone's at school. Grades had to come sooner or later. A student play in Assembly, very entertaining. Iunior Prom. The great suspense is now over-beautiful Clarine is our queen. The A.A.U.W. Tea for Seniors. The Tri Delts really sponsored an excellent Chapel. The Sig Alphs really swung out at the Tri Delt exchange dance. The T.K,E. boys really Went home with outstanding prizes from the Pi Phi exchange party. President and Mrs. 1-lessler invited half the seniors to dinner. The whole school was revamped. You can't get near the auditorium Without hearing one Greek organization or another praticing. Another Student play. It was supposed to be serious, but who cares? And yet another one. There were really people in Chapel this Week. What entertainment, what costumes, and what songs! The Panhellenic Sing is a thing never missed by many Deca- turites. A beautiful day for thef- Delta Sig-Pi Phi exchange picnic. The dance at the Pi Phi house afterwards proved a fitting climax for the evening. The rest of the seniors Were entertained at Hessler's. This time they redid the school in another way. It was lots of fun. The Pi Phi chapel program Was fitting to the occasion, a Chinese War Relief film. 176 lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllXlllllIllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllIIIIIIIIIIlllllllIllllllllllllllllll SAY IT WITH FLOWERS P Q L A R OREENWOOD LOCKER SERVICE AVENUE GREENHOUSES - CORSAGES OUR SPECIALTY , . , N- . , as -XNQIBMAIX UNO IOHNSON, Prop.
