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 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.

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
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. -

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

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

The Administration and Faculty of Millikin
have always shown that they are behind the
students one hundred per cent. 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.

Board of Managers
lt was the pleasant task of the Board of
Managers to be present at the Chapel program
this past year to receive Mr. Mueller's gift to
the university. 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.
Fo rest File Lee Boland, W. H. McG-aughey. R. M. Hamilton. Dr. Hessler. I. S. McClelland
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.

The Student Council
The Student Council has been quite busy
during the past year in its capacity of guidance
for' all student committees and functions. 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.

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
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.
'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
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
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

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.
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.

A class Worthy of much attention is the present junior class, next
year's seniors. 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

was initiated into the National Honorary Debate Society, Pi Kappa
Delta, early in the spring When the local debate squad became a part
of this large organization and brought another national fraternity to
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.

player, lack Miller, football player and track star, and Robert Ander-

games, and the fate of the next year's team fell upon their shoulders
with great Weight.

outstanding members of the class. lt is hoped that those Who Will
return to complete their training, can carry on the high standards
that have been set for them during the past three years.

The present sophomore class was rather depleted in
number from its year as freshmen, for there was a
number of students who did not return but turned to
defense work of one nature or another. 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
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

An extremely large freshman class entered Millikin
in the fall of 1941. 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.

Aston Hall-center of campus activity-was
no exception this year. 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.

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-
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
However the Conservatory deserves a great deal of
credit for its organization and management. lt is an
efficiently and capably set up institution.
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.
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.

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.

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-

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.
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-

Campus activities play an important part in
the lives of all students. 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.
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.
Sergeant-at-Arrns- Dorothy Brown
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.

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.

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-

taken on the campus. The other two, seniors, have
been well known on the campus for many years.

Phi-Bi-Chem was originated in l936 as a society to

the sciences, and secondly to give the science students
a chance for social activity among a group with com-
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.

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

Much in the "campus eye" this year was the
Home Economics Club, an organization for
majors and minors in home economics. From
the time of the annual Wiener roast in Fairview
Park last fall until the club's program was cli-
maxed by the spring formal dinner, a new
activity for the club, the year Was full of inter-
esting events. Some of these were the assem-
bly program sponsored by the club at which
Miss Lita Bane of the University of Illinois
spoke, the November meeting at which the
Thanksgiving basket was prepared for a needy
family, the Christmas party to which each girl
brought a toy to be donated later to the Sal-
vation Army, and the roller skating party in
March. There were also several outside speak-
ers Who discussed matters pertinent to home
economics at the various monthly meetings.
The greatest innovation in the club this year
was ordering of club pins which are now Worn
by the majority ot the members.

are equally as important as are the departmen-
tal organizations that flourish there too. There
has to be a certain amount of social life to round
out the training that is obtained in the class-

be met on a basis other than that of scholar-

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.

Spending an active year in its brick house
on West William, Alpha Chi Omega had its
share in campus activities. 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
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.

Then as the end of school drew near, they

Proud of their new house on Park Place the
Tri Delts started the year off with a bang. 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

Schroeder, one of the many musically inclined
Tri Delis, was president of S.A.l. for the year.
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

Starting with a most successful rushing sea-
son, the Pi Phis moved into an interesting year
crowded with activities and excitement. 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.

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.

Wabash depot saw the opening scene of the
Theta activities for the year when Gerry Edler's
train rattled in from Milwaukee. 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

when they came to the Prison Dance, the

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

The Interfraternity Council has been very in-
strumental in creating good will and coopera-
tion among the fraternities. 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

Gibsorfs band from Purdue University furnish-
ing the music. The informality of the sweater

that they can roll out of their beds at 7:55 in
the morning and still make their eight o'clocks,
started the school year off in a super way.
They displayed their newly decorated dwell-

was next on their social calendar and was fol-

a mighty "big" year. lt all began with a kid
party at the St. Nicholas Hotel, followed by
the Alumni banquet, Dad's Day Dinner, the
Christmas formal, and a house dance.
Four senior men of distinction in the chapter
this year were Charles Bradley, Elmer Ed-
wards, lean Mason, and Robert Sylvester.
Chuck was a member of Alpha Omegag Turk,
a member of Alpha Omega, was also presi-
dent of Beta Alpha, lean was the chapters all-
conference football man, while Bob was vice-
president of Alpha Omega. Several of the jun-

athletes of the hour. The varsity track teams
co-captains were Vic Blackwell and lack Miller.

At the Founders Day banquet on March 9, the

This year the T.K.E. house came to the front
in many Ways. 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.

distinguished themselves. Creighton Lewey
really did his share, what with producing cz

play and taking part in various stage produc-
tions on the campus. 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. '

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

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
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.

Action. excitement. and the expenditure of
much energy are all characteristics of athletics.
They are also an aid to building up a strong
school spirit. for the enthusiasm of the competi-
tive sports does much to arouse that feeling of
loyalty which is known as school spirit.
In the past two years. Millikin has done
much to win praise in the field of sports. Bet-
ter teams, better coaching. cm increased en-
thusiasm on the part of both students and
town's people, and remarkable sportsmanship
have done a great deal to help put Millikin on

After defeating the Frosh-Sophs 61-6, the
Varsity gridders started their seasons sched-
ule by defeating Cornell of Mt. 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

This spring the thirtieth annual tennis tourna-
ment was held in Fairview Park. 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
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.

Outdoor activities played a great part in the
events of W.A.A. this year. 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.

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-

194-2 Conference Games
ln the Big Blue's first 1942 conference game
they played Lake Forest and gave them a
thorough thumping, 41-30. 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.
I The Big Blue played
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-

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.

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

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.
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.

You Take the Low Road"
THE HIGH ROAD is a narrow road with steep grades
and few resting places. lf you have the courage
and stamina to climb it, you will be rewarded by
exhilarating glimpses of the sea and sky and
white mountain peaks of success.
THE LOW ROAD is a heavily rutted highway that
meanders across the dull flats of a humdrum
existence, devoid of real effort or achievement,
since it begins and ends at about the same level.

TO THE GRADUATING STUDENTS:
During the past two years We have lived thru a sports renaissance at
Millikin. You have seen two conference basketball championships come to
your school and the past fall you had an undefeated football team, probably
the finest minor college team in the country.
During these two years We at WSOY have had the privilege of broad-
casting many of your athletic contests, at home and on the road. lt has been
a real pleasure to broadcast the games, and to see Millikin once more come
back to its place at the top of the athletic ladder.
You graduating students will be going out into a world upset by War,
out into a world that will not be particularly good to you for some time yet.
We hope your college days were pleasant and that they will furnish you With
some fond memories to carry you through to the bright future there is in the
