BO AMD OF MANAGERS Probably the most important single body connected with the University, the Board of Managers governs all decisive action and determines the course of Millikin. Helping Millikin during war times, the board, through the broad scope of their combined experience, has orig- inated many measures which insure Millikin ' s influence as a college for war and for peace. The members are: J. Sherman McClelland, President; William Ray McGaughey, Vice-President; Roy M. Hamilton, Secretary; Charles A. Imbo- den. Treasurer; Charles E. Lee, A. Hubert Mills, Forrest File, Lee Boland, Henry M. Owen, J. Reaves Holt. 18 John C. Hessler, President Foremost in President Hessler ' s consideration this year, as always before, has been duty and sincere efforts toward the improvement and guidance of Millikin. To sympathize, perhaps to supervise, certainly, are the daily tasks of Deans Miller and Hess, and they are responsible for untangling many a confused student ' s affairs. 19 FIRST ROW Charles Edson Adkins AB, Dartmouth College, 1932; A.M., 1940.

Elizabeth Pigott Allen Decatur Zeta Tau Alpha, social chairman; Choir; Decaturian; Intramurals; WAA; French Club, treasurer; Debate, Pi Kappa Delta; Phi Bi Chem. Versatile, friendly, all-around girl.

A member of the " Club of Little Injuns " , she is out for a good time any place she goes. Robert Anderson Moline Delta Sigma Phi, pledge president, active president; Basketball; Golf; Baseball; Spanish Club. Big. soit-hearted, full of fun. A leader in everything he does. Bob is one of those athletic Millikinites. He is a math major, and is seldom seen without " Rosie " . " Andy " has wonderful taste in diamonds as evidenced by " Rosie ' s " spark- ler, and we ' re sure he will make the perfect hus- band . . . after the Navy finishes with him. Betty Ann Bailey Decatur Pi Beta Phi, treasurer, president; Pi Mu Theta, secretary; Student Council, vice-president; Home Economics Club; WAA; Decaturian; Chapel Committee; German Club; Who ' s Who. Intelligent, capable, very sweet. " B " is known for her patience. It ' s uncanny, but then, there ' s Ross and he ' s enough to encourage anyone to be patient. It takes more than patience, however, to uphold that high scholastic average. Margaret Baker Decatur Alpha Chi Omega, activities chairman, cor- responding secretary, publicity chairman; WAA; Home Economics Club. Tall, poised, and definitely " Yang " Peg is a home ec major, and on Sundays she en- hances one of the village choir lofts. She warbles quite a pretty tune, too. A close friend of Martha and Susie, Peg would be one of our candidates tor the best dressed girl in Millikin. George Binkley Warrensburg Indees. Warm-hearted, generous, lots of fun. George will be especially remembered by the gals he has lugged around in his car . . . with gas rationing like it is, too. George is out for a good time all the time. 27 SENIOMS Marie Block Oreana Indees; V AA; German Club, president; Co- nant, secretary. Friendly, cheerful, passion for bridge. Marie, who really excels in German, used to have a fancy for embroidered aprons. She can usually be located in the Lounge, stirring up a bridge game. Suzanne Bodkin Decatur Alpha Chi Omega, scholarship chairman, chaplain, corresponding secretary; WAA; Home Economics Club; MiUidek. Sincere, happy, never seems to worry. Flashes around with a Delta Sig pin on her sweater, and a diamond on her left hand . . . just to show she ' s not fooling. The lucky man is Harry Tyson, former Millikinife now overseas. Speaking of flashes, you should see the pictures she takes with those special bulbs. Harriet Bolz Decatur Delta Delta Delta, assistant treasurer, treas- urer; Tau Chi Pi; Pi Mu Theta; Spanish Club; Millidek. Bright, efficient, witty, lots of fun. " Hattie " lives to the tune of " My Bill " for that big TKE Bill Olsen, now in the Navy Air Corps. Harriet is a business major who really knows what goes on in and around this old school. William Britton Decatur Indees; Phi Bi Chem. Studious, earnest, intelligent. Bill is usually to be found in the chem lab or with Henrietta. There isn ' t much about Chemistry that can stump Bill. We envy him that little bicycle in this day and age of rationing. George Burgher Mattoon Sigma Alpha Epsilon, rushing chairman; Intra- murals; Phi Bi Chem. Carefree, cynical, sarcastic. Quite a man is Burgher . . . the " man about town " of the senior class. He is a pre-med student, but can you imagine Burgher with a bedside manner and without his plaid shirt? Leah Carrier Decatur Home Economics Club; Indees; WAA. Quiet, intelligent, full of fun. Leah is Dr. Bell ' s assistant and is really fond of Fluff. However, her heart ' s out in California, as evidenced by her frequent trips west and those super gifts. 28 Philip Coen Pleasant Plains Reserved, sincere, earnest. Millikin hasn ' t seen as much oi Philip as it would have liked to, because his outside duties have claimed so much of his time. , Joan Crouch Decatur Spanish Club; Conant; Decaturian. Eloquent, individual, petite. Individuality is the keynote to loan ' s unusual personality. Besides assisting in the language departments, Joan is quite an authority on Oriental culture. Patricia Curran Decatur Pi Beta Phi, scholarship committee, scholarship chairman; Spanish Club; WAA; Phi Bi Chem, Cheerful, friendly, good mixer. Pat ' s a chem major even if she does spend half her lab periods down in the Lounge majoring in bridge. She really knows her bridge too, as those grand slams she ' s forever making would indicate. Also " attached " to that Delta Sig pin from " Dig-Dig " Joyce. Martha Sanks Cutler Decatur Delta Delta Delta, rushing chairman, president; Town and Gown; ... - Conant. .

Too bad, fellows, she ' s waiting for Scotty for the duration. Delillis Daily Illiopolis Indees; Home Economics Club; Spanish Club. Quiet, sweet, talented. Delillis is the gal from Illiopolis who is just as handy with water colors as she is with a sewing machine. Creative and original, she also possesses a regular beauty opera- tor ' s license.

An active member of Tau Chi Pi, she has been one of the staunchest supporters lor the business depart- ment ' s publication. Robert Dickenson Decatur Sigma Alpha Epsilon; Intramurols ' Quiet, smooth, dry humor. The " sponge " , as his Sig Alph brothers call him, is the victim of almost every unfortunate circumstance that comes along. His broken collarbone and " V for Victory " haircut for example. Rather quiet until coaxed, he soon becomes the life of the party. George Ecklund Pi Mu Alpha. Talented, friendly, witty. George is the wit of the Conserv, and the perfect person to take along on choir trips . . . just ask those who know. One of the most talented of Millikin, he is always hunting up new harmonies and making original arrangements. It seems that a certain freshman redhead has taken up a lot of his time this year. Milton Dippold Decatur Band. Happy, friendly, good mixer. " Milt " spends his nights playing m dance bands and his days sleeping in the lounge. But he really knows his music . . you should hear him play boogie-woogie. His dramatic ability was evidenced by his whole hearted participation in " End of the World. " Springfield Edwardsville Anita Ellsperman Sigma Alpha Iota; Band; Orchestra; Pi Mu Theta. Sweet, generous, intelligent. " Nita " really knows how to blow that trumpet. Phil Spitalney ' s interest in her work leaves no doubt on that subject. An honor student as well, Anita has a bright future in store for her. . • Decatur Robert Ernest Indees. Friendly, talented, happy. It would be hard to say whether art or the little home ec major, Attebery, is Bob ' s main interest. Many of his paintings have been exhibited at the Art Institute as well as here at school. 30 SENIOMS Ellen Feeney Ivesdale Indees; W.A.A.; Intramurals. Sweet, friendly, athletic. Ellen ' s known for her happy disposition and charm- ing smile. She can be found most any time in the gym teaching folk dancing, basketball, and generally assisting " Dora " . Margaret Flewelling Decatur Delta Delta Delta, historian; Choir; Millidek; Tau Chi Pi Striking, witty, efficient. Peg ' s an all around girl, good in everything, but especially in business. Yet she will have a grand time while she ' s " mowing them down " in her work. She ' s fun to be with and fun to hear from, as a certain male down in Florida will testify. Verona Prey Decatur Conscientious, capable, persevering. Actual teaching experience has lent a dignity and maturity to Miss Frey ' s viewpoint, and she has shared these experiences with those in her classes. Virginia Fryxell Molina Alpha Chi Omega, vice-president; French Club, treasurer; W.A.A.; Dramatics; Conant, president; Pi Mu Theta, president; Home- coming Committee; Decaturian; Who ' s Who. Witty, friendly, intelligent, and all around ' " nut " . Millikin will never forget " Fryxie " as that super maniac in " Ladies in Retirement. " " Nothing to it, just comes natural! " One of those fortunate English majors, she has the sole custodianship of the Eliza- bethan Study. A really swell person worth knowing is our " Fryxie. " Adele Gaetjens Oradell, New Jersey Alpha Chi Omega, president; Intramurals; W.A.A.; Pan-Hellenic, secretary; Millidek. Friendly, athletic, bridge hound. " Delie " is another of those all-around gals. She ' s usually seen with that man about town, Roby, and can be found any summer sailing in New Jersey in that super sailboat. She ' s one of Millikin ' s " sharpest " tennis players. In fact, mention anything and Delie can do it. Ray Galliger Decatur Delta Sigma Phi; Intramurals; Varsity Base- ball. Good-natured, cheerful, unselfish. " Queenie " and that talented Alpha Chi, Artys Ford, are almost inseparable. Ray is very conscientious and applies himself whole-heartedly to anything he attempts. 31 SENIOKS Ruth Gragg Decatur indees, Tau Chi Pi, treasurer, president. Intelligent, capable. Ruth is one of the foremost students in the field of business, as witnessed by her assistantship in the de- partment. Intensely interested in her work, she excels at every turn. Robert Greb Decatur Indees; Phi Bi Chem; German Club. Reserved, sincere, intelligent. A Chem major, Bob ' s quiet humor is appreciated by all who know him. We have heard that it isn ' t just his job that interests him at the Herald and Review. Mary Frances Griner Decatur Delta Delta Delta, pledge secretary, historian, chaplain; Home Ec Club; WAA; Co-Editor Mil- hdek. Who ' s Who. Attractive, cheerful, versatile. Efficiency is " M.F.G. ' s " middle name. Besides helping straighten J.M.U. ' s multiple problems and maintaining that high scholastic average, she is one of the editors of this publication. She is handy with a paint brush, as evidenced by the murals in the student lounge. Yet with all of this extra work, Mary Frances always seems to have time for a " special interest " in Chi- cago. Jeanne Hanson Decatur Pi Beta Phi, rush chairman, historian, record- ing secretary; French Club; Student Council; Debate; Pi Kappa Delta; Decaturian; Spanish Club; Pan-Hellenic; Junior class treasurer; Who ' s Who.

Very interested in the problems of the world, she puts her trust in a potential M.D. — a med student now in Minneapolis. Mary Martha Harder Garrett Delta Delta Delta, president; Intramurals; W.A.A.; Pi Mu Theta. Beautiful, charming, intelligent Mu, as she was so aptly nicknamed by Mr. Ploenges, is one of Millikin ' s loveliest girls. Always gracious, she is considered by many the best-dressed MiUikin- ite. She can be seen most any time flashing around in her cream-colored convertible with that dashing Delta Sig, Bill Messmore. Mary Martha is a busi- ness major and we prophesy a brilliant future for her as " Ms " . John Hardy Effingham Delta Sigma Phi, secretary, sergeant-at-arms; Freshman basketball; Junior class president. Quiet, pleasant, pleasing personality.

Jack has held many positions of responsibility and displayed considerable ability. 32 Norman Hassler Belleville Delta Sigma Phi. Friendly, efficient, conscientious.

Bettie Anne Henry Alpha Chi Omega, Decatur Social assistant treasurer, recording secretary Welfare committee; Intramurals; W.A.A.; French Club. Sweet, congenial, intelligent. Bettie Anne is a lifesaver when you are in dire need at the library. With her sweet, straightforward manner, she soon settles all your difficulties. It ' s surprising how she can always keep her composure, especially with Muffley in the Navy. Robert Hill Decatur Delta Sigma Phi, social chairman, pledge master ball; Intramurals; Choir. vice-president; Base- Cheerful, straight-forward, " gobs of fun " . Bob ' s one of those boys now in the Army Air Corps. But Millikin remembers him well. Much of his interest is back here also — mostly in the person of a little red- headed Tri Delt.

William Hill Decatur Phi Bi Chem; French Club; Assistant in Chem Lab. Brilliant, friendly, capable. Bill is intensely interested in anything concerned with Chemistry, and it ' s putting it mildly to say that he ' s very good. Chem students will not soon forget his conscien- tious aid in the lab.

Sally Hite Kansas Delta Delta Delta, activities chairman, assistant treasurer; Sigma Alpha Iota, sergeant-at-arms, recording secretary; Choir; Queen of Junior Class. Sweet, unselfish, efficient.

Jack is a Physics major. If the Army doesn ' t get him first, he will get his Master ' s from Massachusetts Institute of Technology next year, for he has accepted a fellowship there. We feel that Jack has a brilliant future in this field. A leader in the Indees, he displayed exceptional organizing ability. 33 William Howenstine Decatur Quiet, reserved, earnest. Bill is studying to be a minister and so is very active in cliurch work. Having seen liis performances in more than ono chapel, we leel he ' ll be a great asset to any church. Robert Kaufmann Decatur Indees; French Club. Friendly, intelligent, studious Bob is a Pre-Med and he will most certainly make a very good doctor.

Joe Kityk Benld Band and Orchestra; Conservatory Student Council, Talented, sincere, quiet. loe was one of the Conserv ' s best violinists, but in his Sophomore year he transferred to the B usiness department.

Bet it won ' t be long before he and " Izzy " will be walking down the aisle together. Perry Mcintosh New man Indees; Football; Basketball; Track. Athletic, quiet, conscientious. Perry is very quiet, but when " Bennie " comes to town he really beams. (You should see that beau- tiful Christmas present she received — a diamond. Perry ' s been walking on clouds ever since.) To really appreciate him, you should see him hold that line on the football field. Lucy Pierce Maxwell Decatur Indees; W.A.A.; Home Ec Club. Quiet, intelligent, pleasant personality. Lucy is the sweet little gal who before her marriage was always with Leah and Mary. She has been one of the most active members of the Home Ec Club, so we are sure she will make a good cook.

Robert Moorehead Decatur Sigma Alpha Epsilon, social chairman, vice- president; Inter-fraternity council; Track; Ten- nis; Chapel committee. Smooth, intelligent, congenial. " Mole " is now in the Army, as are the others of the " Terrible Three, " Moorehead, Dickenson, and Ken- ney.

He is also known as one of the " smoothest-dressers " in school. 35 SENIORS Mary Morrow Newman Pi Beta Phi; Cheer Leader; W.A A,; Sophomore vice-president; German Club, vice-president; Student Lounge Committee, Capable, athletic, friendly. Mary is one of those people who always gets things done. She is planning to work in the DuPont Chem- ical Works this summer, and she is especially well fitted for her work.

Mavis Munch Argenta Delta Delta Delta, custodian; Intramurals; W.A.A.; Home Ec Club; Student chapel Com- mittee; Millidek. Swfeet, intelligent, reserved.

Erma Jean Myers Assumption Delta Delta Delta; Home Ec Club; W.A.A.; Milhdek. Quiet, reserved, a lot of fun. E. J. is seldom seen without that Delta Sig, Dick Postlewoit. Together they manage to cover this town from end to end. Something is always cooking — sail- boating in the summer, dancing in the winter. The only time when E. J. is ever alone is when Dick goes off on a debate jaunt and even then he can hardly tear himself away. Ann Norman Decatur Pi Beta Phi, rushing chairman; French Club; Pan-Hellenic; W.A.A.; Debate; Pi Kappa Delta. Tiny, sweet, vivacious. " Normie " is a member of that exclusive society, the Club of the Little Injuns. She is an inveterate bridge hound, and can always be found in the lounge. She is a major in the field of History, but to look at her you ' d never believe she knew so much about the past. Ann has a bright future as evidenced by that Delta Sig pin from former basketball star, Johnnie Taflinger. Roy Ousley N ewman Tau Kappa Epsilon, president; Intramurals. Smooth, pleasing personality, efficient. Roy is quite the ladies ' man, but has never centered on one interest as yet. (Lucky girl who trips him!) His Teke brothers must think he ' s pretty swell too. Remember the time they all helped him harvest the crops when farm labor was so short? That is real loyalty. Robert Parrish Decatur Indees, treasurer; Town and Gown; Intra- murals; Track; Choir. Witty, efficient, pleasant. If Bob lives up to the family tradition, he will make a success of anything he undertakes. At the present, he wants to be a director of air traffic.

Marguerite Pollock Decatur Indees; Sigma Alpha Iota; Pi Mu Tlieta. Quiet, efficient, good-natured. Marquerite is usually seen in the company of Anita.

She shows great promise as a pianist as well as a teacher. Nelda Ray Zeta Tau Alpha, house manager, scholarship chairman Jolly, efficient, lots of fun. Nelda is usually working " busy as a bee " in the lab at the Decatur Macon County hospital. She is one of those girls who pitches in whole-heartedly in anything she undertakes. Nelda is noted for her jolly good-nature, but the Zetas all agree she can play tricks as well as anyone. Gerald Reece Brownstown Tau Kappa Epsilon, treasurer; Intramurals; Band; Decautrian business manager. Friendly, smooth, efficient. Gerry, now in the Army Air Corps, was one of those fortunate mid-years. He surprised everyone by coming out with the highest scholastic average in the mid-year class. That may have been due to the fact that that little blonde Tri Delt, Penny, wasn ' t in school. At any rate, she ' s waiting now with a diamond, third finger left hand, to let every- one know she ' s all tied up for the duration. Verne Roby Decatur Delta Sigma Phi; Basketball; Intramurals. - Good-looking, friendly, athletic. Wherever you see Verne, you usually see " Delie " , too. (You should hear her root for him when he ' s playing on the Blakeney and Plum basketball team.) He used to flash around in his big Buick, but the tire and gasoline shortage has sort of cramped his style. Roselyn Schmalenberger Belleville Delta Delta Delta, Pledge mistress; Student Council, president; German Club, vice-president; Intramurals; W.A.A.; Student Lounge Committee; Cheer-leader; Who ' s Who. Cute, sweet, intelligent, efficient. Ros ie was chosen last year as one of the outstanding students at Millikin. Everyone who knows her will agree v hole-heartedly with this decision.

Stan is now in the Army, but Eleanor Ann still thinks he is the " O.A.O. " 37 Virginia Shake Decatur Studious, sincere, intelligent. Virginia is possessed of a rare intellectual curiosity that will surely lead ht-r to discover many interesting things. Already she has had on opportunity to try out some of her pet theories in child wellaro work. Roberta Siekman Beardstown Alpha Chi Omega, treasurer; WAA,; InUamurals; Tau Chi Pi, Quiet, dark, attractive. " Sieke " is one of these little girls who doesn ' t make much noise, but is very active. Ask her sometime about the small menagerie she had on fourth floor of Aston Hall. She is still " true blue " to her high school sweetheart, and really beams whenever he hits town. Ruth Smith Springfield Indees; Choir; Band; Orchestra; Sigma Alpha Iota, treasurer; Junior Choir accompanist; Conant. Quiet, intelligent, attractive. Ruth is known for her knowledge of opera.

A Conserv studerit, " Fritz " blows a mean trumpet and is fond of records — both classical and swing. ' Virginia Traughber Mt. Zion Pi Beta Phi, pledge mistress; W.A.A. ; Choir; Town and Gown; Student Lounge Finance Committee; Debate; Dec editor; Conant. Talented, efficient, capable.

It seems at this time Fort Benning claims a certain Captain who is the center of her interest. Harry Tyson Decatur Delta Sigma Phi. Friendly, capable, sincere. Harry was a business administration major at Millikin until he decided to put his military training into actual use. Before he left, however, he put a diamond ring on the finger of a certain little Alpha Chi, so for further information, see Sue. SENIORS Robert Vaughn Olney Sigma Alpha Epsilon, treasurer; Basketball; Football; Intramurals. Athletic, genial, " good Joe " . " Bubblenose " , as Bob has been dubbed by the brothers on Fairview, majored in business and poli- tical science. He is noted for his athletic prowess, as well as for his preference in importing a certain home-town girl for all big occasions. Bernice Wagner Decatur Delta Delta Delta, recording secretary, rush- ing chairman; Pan-Hellenic; Millidek; Conant; W.A.A. Quiet, attractive, intelligent. " Wag " has taken up teaching as her profession, and we would certainly consider the pupils lucky who get her as their teacher. She is one of these people who doesn ' t say a great deal, but conscien- tiously acts with every bit of her ability. Mary Alice Walters Decatur Alpha Chi Omega; W.A.A. ; Chapel Choir. Pleasant personality, friendly. Although Mary Alice came to Millikin for just her Senior year, she has made us wish that we could have seen more of her.

Genial, purposeful, sincere. A business major, Joe is possessed of a flashy smile and winning personality that will help him make many " conquests " . Burnett Weaver Elwin Indee. Quiet but pleasing personality, intelligent, efficient. Although Mr. Weaver goes to school during the week, he has a full-time minister ' s job on Sundays.

Friendly, lots of fun, man-about-town. Bob, better known as " Cobby " , seems to find all of his heart interests among the Decatur High girls. He is one of the few men still left in school, but expects his call soon. 39 SENIOMS John Wheal Kittery, Maine Indees; Camera Club, Reserved, friendly, capable. If one were to form his opinion of all " easterners " from just knowing John, his opinion would indeed be a good one. As a political science and history major, John plans to take up law as a profession. Martha Williams Decatur Alpha Chi Omegd, social chairman; Home Ec Club, president. Sweet, reserved, well-liked. Martha is noted for her attractiveness and neatness. Being a member of the Home Ec department might help account for her excellent taste. She is constantly saving her pennies, it seems, to make calls to a certain someone in Nebraska. Mary Williams Decatur Spanish Club; Home Ec Club; WAA; Indees. Quiet, pleasing smile, intelligent. Mary is another very active member of the Home Ec department, and it looks as if she will soon put her training to the practical test for, as you have prob- ably noticed, she is wearing a diamond on her left hand. Lucky man — Tom Cooper. Robert E. Wilson Decatur Indees, president; Intramurals; Debate; Town and Gown; Track; Lounge Committee; Co- nant; French Club; Decaturian. Efficient, well-mannered, " flashy " smile. Robert E. is noted for his individuality and his never tiring leadership of the Indees. He has received much publicity for his participation in the Youth ' s Hosteling movement through his long hikes over the country — a real outdoors man. 40 41 JUNIOKS Artys Ford Gayle Foster Cole Shirley Freidinger Marjorie Funk Velda Gerber Mt.

Familiar to all students studying in the library, these sounds have become a regular part of our school life. The conservatory boasts one of the most beautiful music buildings in the country, and is well known for its excellent training. Many talented Millikinites have gone through those conservatory doors on their way to fame. The " conserve " members are a compact and loyal group, and are a well organized part of the university. Its members are also active in other organizations on campus. Drama, sports, student council, language clubs, band, orchestra, choir and even campus queens are well represented by conserva- tory students. The responsibility for the excellent organization and man- agement of the conservatory rests with its own efficient, and well liked director. Miss Winifred St. Clare Minturn. 58 MUSIC . . . MAJOM AND MINOM The precedent set last year with an outstanding choir was not let down this year. The choir ' s reputation attracted many new members this year — in fact, so many that the formation of two choirs was necessary. The first choir sang every Tues- day morning in chapel. The second choir was responsible for the concerts given this year. Behind the success of the choirs is Carl Van Buskirk, an able composer as well as a fine direc- tor. (Rather new to this campus, he has built up the university choir from a straggling, unbalanced group into a widely ac- claimed organization.) On December 16, the choir gave its first concert of the school year, and was enthusiastically received by the public. The spring concert on May 7 was as great a success. Under Mr. Van Buskirk ' s leadership, a new idea became a reality this year. The choir sent letters to all music schools over the country inviting student and other composers to send their works to the choir. The choir turned itself into a sym- posium, a sort of testing ground for new compositions. Com- positions of Mr. Van Buskirk ' s as well were tried out by the choir. A symposium concert was given March 12, summing up the choir ' s activities in that line. This idea was highly commended by the participating universities and music schools. Millikin is proud of the choir ' s outstanding contribution this year. 59 MUSIC HATH POWERS TO SOOTHE Although the war effort has taken a large number of its members this year, Millikm can still boast of a fine orchestra. Under the capable leadership of Mr. Echaniz, it produces mu- sic for which Millikin has gained an enviable reputation. Last fall the orchestra gave its annual concert for students and townspeople. Besides that appearance, members of the orchestra played for the Town and Gown plays, " Candle in the Wind " and " Ladies in Retirement. " It is hoped that despite existing conditions, such a valuable and highly regarded organization as the Millikin orchestra will be able to continue. AND TO STIM THE HEAMT The Millikin Band has changed rapidly this year due to loss of many of its members who entered the service. However, this year the band played for the football games as usual. Since most of the basketball games were played in the Millikin gym, there was not enough room to permit the band to play. The band ' s contribution to these events was missed by all of the students, and it is to be hoped that cir- cumstances will soon allow the band to play for the games again. The band gave two very fine concerts this year, under the leadership of Mr. Frank Prindl. Also, the band went to the station to give its members who left for the enlisted reserves a farewell " send-off. " 61 CLASSIC HAS ITS PLACE BUT SO HAS SWING Sigma Alpha Iota Sigma Alpha Iota began the year with a " get-together " party with Phi Mu Alpha on October 17. This was to enable the new students to become acquainted. Ruth Smith and Eleanor Schroeder were elected to Conant Society this year, while Marguerite Pollock and Anita Ellsper- man were members of Pi Mu Theta. Thirty-five girls were entertained in the newly decorated chapter room of Millikin Conservatory. A carnival theme was carried out in decorations, hand-made favors and refreshments. Mrs. J. Alfred New of Bloomington, the Province President, visited Millikin on November 21 and 22. The South ' American Musicale was held November 21 at Kaeuper Hall, and a tea and reception for Mrs. New followed in the chapter room. Officers of Sigma Alpha Iota for this year were: President — Eleanor Ann Schroeder Vice-President — Esther Wolfe Secretary — Sally Kite Treasurer — Ruth Smith :. " Phi Mu Alpha Phi Mu Alpha has suffered somewhat this year due to a drop in membership because of enlistment in the armed forces. Because of this decrease in the number of members, the Phi Mu ' s have not been able to carry on as many activities as in former years. They did, however, go carolling at Christmas in traditional Phi Mu fashion. No matter how cold or bad the weather, the Phi Mu ' s don ' t disappoint their " public, " but serenade the sorority houses, Aston Hall and President Hessler ' s home in a way that is remembered and looked forward to from year to year. The group worked on a popular variety program similar to that which was presented last year, but too many of the boys were gone before the program could be presented to the student body. Officers for the year were: President — George Ecklund Vice-President — John Langdon Secretary — William Gardner Treasurer — Hugh Mullins 62 Back row: Stookey, Johnson, Falk, M. C.

This year, Phi Bi Chem, under the advisorship of Dr. Gladys Galligar, has expanded into a coeducational organization. Membership of women is in accordance with the qualifications of the national Sigma Zeta society. Phi Bi Chem will become the Pi Chapter of Sigma Zeta. Highlights of this year included the annual banquet and an entertaining talk by Professor Richard Cole entitled " It ' s About Time. " Officers for the year were: President — Jack Holloway Vice-President — William Hill Secretary-Treasurer — Virginia Lambert Back row: Sensenbaugh, Bill Hill.

Tau Chi Pi is an organization for girls majoring m secre- tarial science. This year they tried to reorganize the group in such a way that it would become stronger in the years to come. There were approximately twenty-three members. The year ' s activities began with a pot luck in the Home Ec. Lounge, at which time, Tau Chi Pi outlined their plans for the year. , . The January meeting was held at the Tri Delta house when Lieutenant Rundles, of the WAAC recruiting station in Peoria, spoke to Tau Chi Pi members about the opportunities for business women in this branch of the service. A picnic was held in April. The girls also sponsored one week of the bond drive. Officers for the year were: President — Ruth Gragg; Vice- President — Velda Gerber; and Secretary-Treasurer — Helen Belle Calmes.

[ Coeant Conant society, formerly a club for English majors, has in the last two years invited outstanding students from other de- partments to become members as well. A regular meeting was held each month, usually at some sorority house. This :, , year members of the faculty spoke to the group on various if ■ ■ ■ subjects. ; 1; The new members were welcomed at a dinner held in the Pi Phi house. The second meeting was in the Art Department where Professor Neal gave a lithographic demonstration. The . , Christmas Wassail party was held, unlike previous years, at il ' ::, ' the Lost Bridge Road home of Dr. and Mrs. Fryxell. Conant i] ! " arrived in a truck, with its " culture " and " dignity " well hidden p :, beneath straw and heavy coats. [l ■ : The faculty members were Mr. and Mrs. Adkins, Dr. and Mrs. Fryxell, Miss McCaslin, Dr. and Mrs. McNabb, and Miss Wood. The officers for the year were: Pres. — Virginia Fryxell, Vice-Pres. — Robert E. Wilson, Sec. — Marie Block, Treas — Mar- tha Sanks Cutler, and Keeper of the Archives — Virginia Traughber. MAY THE PEACE BE WMITTEN IN ENGLISH 66 TO KNOW AH THATS THE QUESTION Pi Kappa Delta On May 8, 1943, Millikin Debate Society became incor- porated in Pi Kappa Delta, the largest of the national debate fraternities. Dr. F. L. C. Holmes, Province President, formally installed the organization as Illinois Tau Chapter. Present also at the installatioin was the chapter from Charleston. Original charter members are Pauline Augustine, Jeanne Han- son, John Hinton, Eugene Johnson, Mary Lav son, Charles Lewis, L. C. McNabb, Albert T. Mills, Estella Nash, Donald Nichols, Jeanne Porter, Roswell Prince, M. E. Robinson, Vir- ginia Traughber, and Inabel Trueblood. Professor Mills is an honorary member, and Professors McNabb and Robinson are instructors. Since the Debate Society has become a national frater- nity organization, membership has been considerably in- creased. In spite of the decrease in students due to the war, nine new members were installed this year: Warren Abrams, Elizabeth Pigott Allen, Francella Clevenger, Ann Norman, Jane Norris, Robert Parrish, Margaret Paschal, Denny Pease, and Richard Postlewait. This year Pi Kappa Delta was limited to two trips; both to Normal — one trip in January to the Intercollegiate Debate Tour- nament and the other in March to the Province Meeting of Pi Kappa Delta. Back row: McNabb, Mills, Garver, Postlewait, Robinson, Abrams. First row; A. Norman, Lawson, J. Hanson, E.

It has long been customary for all three clubs LE CEMCLE FM ANCAIS Le Cercle Francois, member of the pro-Fight- ing French Alliance Francaise, is, besides being the only one of the language clubs to belong to an international organization, the oldest departmental club on the campus. This offsets to a great degree the fact that it is also the smallest of the three language clubs. LA SOCIEDAD ESPANOLA La Sociedad Espanola is, thanks to the good neighbor policy and the accompanying interest in Spanish, the largest of the language clubs. The Spanish Club ' s big event of the year be- sides the International Night or International Ball, is the Tertulia Espanola, Spanish for " get- together. " DEE DEUTSCHE VEMEIN Der Deutsche Verein concerns itself with the artistic and cultural phases of German life which will survive any odium cast upon the country by an unhappy government. This club brings a bit of Old Germany to the campus each Christmas when the members have a Ger- man Christmas party. Its members are noted for the vigor with which they roar out " O Tan- nenbaum " on such occasions. to join each year in presenting International Night. Recently, though, they have foregone the elaborate affair due to the war and have substituted an International Ball. THEY ALL SAY THE SAME BUT 68 Back row: Blackburn, Ross. First row: M. Johnston, M.

Home Economics Club, an organization for those who major or minor in Home Ec, had many and varied activities this year. The annual weiner roast was held in Fairview Park to honor the new students of the department. New officers, elected at the first business meeting, were as follows: President — Martha Williams Vice-President — Irene Eilers Secretary — Mildred Smith Treasurer — Suzanne Bodkin At the annual pot luck held in November, twenty-two girls, including Mrs. Ruth Walker, were initiated. The goal for the bond and stamp drive which lasted one week was $555.00. The drive met with so much praise and enthusiasm from students and actives alike that the goal was topped by $3,500. Miss Clara Brown of the University of Minnesota visited Millikin while making a special study of Home Economics de- partments in the colleges of the North Central Association. She was here for two days during the week before Thanks- giving. Novel parties were held twice a month. Included were a patriotic tea, a Mexican party, a Christmas party, and movies. , The Thanksgiving basket was given again this year to a deserving family. NEW KECMUITS FOK THE HOME FKONT 70 WAAC S AND WAVERS, MAYBE; BUT COEDS, DEFINITELY Astoe Hall Combine sixty-nine lively girls, late parties and midnight spreads, unequalled serenades at ungodly hours, sprinkle with fun and excitement, add a generous dose of a house- mother ' s sweetness — and you ' ve got Aston Hall. Although these sixty-nine girls were always ready to get into mischief, Mrs. Walker made sure that quiet hours were kept, that study- ing was done (at least attempted!) — and mainly, that the fun was saved for the right times. Miss Bosler, the student nurse, patiently took care of the girls when sickness turned up — every- thing from mild colds to measles. When the Army politely asked the girls to move out of Aston Hall so that the soldiers could move in, there was prob- ably more excitement around the Hall than there ever has been anytime in history. When sixty-nine girls start packing and getting their things together, that is really something. After some of the girls had already moved and practically everyone else was ready to go at a minute ' s notice, the Army decided to use barracks instead of the Hall. Then things be- gan to fly again — everybody moved back and unpacked. What an experience! It will all make interesting conversation for the Hallites and their grandchildren in years to come. The girls of the Hall will also long remember the social events they had this year, for everything seemed to be a suc- cess. They started the year off with a bang — a pajama party, followed by an open-house tea, a Hallowe ' en party, two dances, Christmas chapel, a Christmas party, a pot-luck dinner, and a tea for the Air Corps cadets — truly a year to be remembered.

BUT " Candle in the Wind " During the first semester, Town and Gown under the di- rection of Dr. McNabb presented Maxwell Anderson ' s " Candle in the Wind. " The scene was war-torn France, and the time just after the fall of France. Clarine Leonard portrayed Madeline Guest, As an Ameri- can actress desperately trying to free her French fiance from a German concentration camp, she displayed unusual sensi- tivity in her portrayal. With deep understanding, she deftly touched the hearts of her audience. Dale Boden was a romantic Raoul St. Cloud, with his dark coloring and rich voice. His slight French accent was skillfully done. The vibrant quality of his voice caused the audience to to live those heart-breaking times with the lovers. Dr. Fryxell merited special mention for his convincing characterization of Nazism as the ruthless director of the con- centration camp. Bob Parish displayed definite talent as the Nazi assistant who rebelled against his government by freeing Raoul. Beverly Reed as Maisie, Madeline ' s wise-cracking friend, and Isabel Hershey as Cissie, her maid, added color and the light touch to the play. Denny Pease as Deseze, Joseph Akers as Henri, and John Garver as Fargeau added pathos as they saw their family and friends tortured and killed, and their country crumble beneath their feet. Peg Paschal and Francella Clevenger portrayed two New England school teachers, Charlotte and Marcy, who symbolized the American attitude of indifference to the war that was prevalent at that time. The only Town member of the cast, Helen Holland, gave the audience a heart-breaking performance when, as a peas- ant woman, she collapsed after being permitted to see her prisoner son. This play was one of the most significant and timely of those produced at Millikin for some time. 72 HAM WASN ' T MATIONED HEME The Town and Gown players, under the direction of Dr. L. C. McNabb, presented " Ladies in Retirement " during the second semester of the school year. Decatur critics and audiences rated this play as one of the best that has been produced by the Town and Gown group in recent years. The production was unusually well done, and every little detail was carried out in near-professional style. Two regular evening performances were given, and in addition, a special afternoon show was put on for the army air cadets. The story took place near Gravesend, England, around 1885, and centered around the trials and tribulations of a housekeeper who was burdened by the responsibility of her two queer sisters, and by duty to a mistress who resented her sisters. The part of the mistress of the house was vividly portrayed by Bev Reed who donned a red wig for the part. Bev did a fine piece of work as the elderly, vain, " reformed " dancer. Marie Hempen, only Town member of the cast, played the part of the strong-minded housekeeper very convincingly. The part of her nephew, a petty criminal, gave Bob Parrish an op- portunity to appear in a much different role than he had played before. Taking full advantage of this opportunity, he turned in a spirited and polished performance. However, the two queer sisters, played by Margaret Pas- chal and Virginia Fryxell, " stole the show. " Their mannerisms and childish antics kept the audience in an uproar whenever they appeared on the scene. Others in the cast included Jean Dancey, who played the flirtatious maid with a most convincing finesse, and Francella Clevenger who portrayed the soft-hearted nun with consider- able insight. Especially worthy of note was the skillfully managed ele- ment of suspense and horror. The whole play was an admir- able mixture of mirth and mystery. Towii and Gown " Ladies in Retirement " 73 THE UR IAN te ' k.»4,JAMES MILLIKIN UNIVERSITY Vol. XL Decatur, Illinois No. 31 Revision Committee Announced Council Presents Inadequacies of Constitution The student mass meeting to dis- cuss revision of the constitution of the Student Council took place No- vember 11, amid numerous indica- tions that the students were highly interested in the problems which be- set student self-government. John Garver was in charge of the meeting, which was open to the entire student body and closed to faculty. Speakers who revealed various phases of the problems which con- fronted these plans for revisions were Roselyn Schmolenberger, Bill McGaughey, Denny Pease, and George Peters. Faults Explained Miss Schmolenberger revealed the limitations of the present Council ' s powers. McGaughey explained that these limitations were due to weak- ness of executive power. Pease evoked applause from the students with his discussion of the problem of representation in the Council, and Peters reviewed the unpleasant cir- cumstances which have surrounded past elections which the Council has had under its supervision. Dec ' s Objective The cardinal objective of the mass meeting was accomplished; students as a whole showed interest in the student council. If students are suf- ficiently aroused, and stay aroused, there is no doubt that the program of a more efficient student govern- ment will go through. This plan and campaign for the reorganization of the Council ' s con- stitution was one of the main objec- tives for the Dec during the first semester. Traughber, Abrams Head 1942-43 Dec Staff Ecklund Drums Up Some More Variety A variety show, the Kampus Ka- pers of 1943, will be given May 8 in Albert Taylor Hall. This program, originally planned for the cadets, is now open free of charge to the entire student body and interested towns- people. George Ecklund, the chair- man, has been planning the program for about two months. The program will begin at 7:30. VIRGINIA TRAUGHBER was ap- pointed the 1942-43 editor of the Decaturian by the Student Council last spring. Virginia was one of the outstanding members of the Speech Department for her three and a half years at Millikin. She was also a member of Pi Kappa Delta and one of the students chosen for the Brown Debate her junior year. WARREN ABRAMS, the business manager, received his appointment last fall and immediately began work on the office. He managed a new typewriter, a phone and another desk for the editor. Abie is also a Pi Kappa Delta and was on the Brown Debate this spring. His advertising and jokes will not be soon forgotten in the Dec office. Decaturian Sponsors Bond Queen Mary Jones, freshman Pi Phi, was crowned Bond Queen at the Millikin dance for the Army Air Corps men March 20. The queen was announced by an extra edition of the Decaturian which gave the votes of the various candidates. Clarine Leonard was second, with Betty Shaw, Jean Aide, Wanda Malsbury, and Ruth Sutton not far behind. A grand march was started, fol- lowed by the candidates and their escorts. The formation proceeded from twos to eights and then again to couples. After this the cadets formed a long aisle saluting the queen until she reached her throne. A crown made of red, white and blue flowers covered with $18.75 worth of defense stamps was placed on her head. Burchett ' s Studio offered to take a picture to be submitted in the National contest. The soldiers were introduced by special hosts and hostesses appoint- ed by Mrs. Hess. Only Millikin stu- dents were admitted. The music was furnished by a phonograph lent by Dr. Schorfle, and there was a predominance of slow, dreamy music which did much to create an atmosphere of friendli- ness and good will. All of the fraternities and sororities donated records for the dance. Jack Weatherford was in charge of the contest until he was called up with the reserves in February. Amanda Morford then took over his job. The arrival of the Air Force Detachment has brought with it two very talented writers. These fellows will write a page for the Dec for the rest of the semester. This page will replace the sports page which has formerly been customary. This contribution is very welcome both because of the dire shortage of sports news, and because of the importance of the three hundred new stu- dents which have recently ar- rived on campus. All students are urged not to miss " By Dube and East " on the fourth page. 74 May 18, 1943 THE DECATURIAN Page 2 Pease Perpetrates Unprecedented Policy Denny Pease was appointed editor of the Decaturian to replace Wayne Wilson according to an announce- ment made by Roselyn Schmalen- berger. Wayne was forced to resign because of certain discrepancies in his grades and a hurried call to the Air Corps. Denny has many new ideas for improving the set-up of the paper. He has appointed Betty Pat Frye and Wendell Wilson as his assist- ants. Denny intends to use the second page for poetry and other creative work. The size of the paper is to be changed back to the small size used in former years. Denny has been the feature editor of the Dec for the past semester and has worked on make-up with Vir- ginia Traughber. Great things are expected of this new editor in spite of the fact that he may receive his call for the Air Corps within a few weeks. " In Memoriam " " Reserved for Jack Weatherford, Esq., until he comes marching home. " Thus protecting his interests, John William Weatherford, the Dec ' s cele- brated Typewriter Strategist, left a powerful memorial in the form of his jaunty black felt hat and Cham- berlain umbrella as he trotted off to war unprotected against wind and rain. We at Millikin should fully appreciate this great sacrifice. When the wind howls and the great storms pour, just think of poor be- draggled Jack who has martyred himself for our sake. A far more noble thing is this than contributing money to erect a huge stone struc- ture which brings no one pleasure or grief. For the staff laughs and cries at intervals when anyone looks at these symbols of a wit famed far and wide for his cynical remarks about life, women, and ravens. But we all realize that sometime in the near future we shall again see our own " Leaning Tower of Pisa " sitting in the office — his hat perched on his head and his um- brella reclining beside him — while he considers the state of the world he has gone out to save. WANT ADS WANTED: A room for 2 young gentle- men about 20 feet long and 15 feet broad. FOR SALE: A Jersey cow by an old lady with crumpled horns. Paschal, Frye Take Over Second Co-Editors For the second time in the history of Millikin Decaturian co-editors were elected by the student council. Both editors are girls due to war- time conditions and majorities. Betty Pat Frye and Peg Paschal have assumed their duties with confidence and a forward look. Both girls have had experience with school newspapers. Betty Pat, who was the editor-in- — chief of her Junior high school paper in Conway, Arkansas, held the same position in the last part of her junior year at Robinson, Illinois. During her senior year at Decatur high school, she was on the special staff. This year Betty Pat has been Editorial assistant for the Decaturian and has written many special col- umns for the paper. She is an Indee, has been a member of choir, and also works in the school office. Peg Paschal was on the " Rough Rider " staff during her sophomore year in high school. When she came to Decatur, she joined the Observer staff for two years. She was copy editor on the Decaturian until she and Betty Pat were promoted to their new job. Peg is a member of Delta Delta Delta. Dramatics seem to appeal to Peg most of all. She has appeared in several maior Town and Gown pro- ductions. Peg is also a member of W.A.A., Spanish Club, and is chair- man for the Student Lounge Com- mittee. Things we want to remember — The arrival of the Army Air Corps.

Thank Gawd for men! Where would the D.P. be without them? Patrol wagons carry the strangest people. Wouldn ' t you be surprised if you saw Dottie Palmer riding around in one? So were we. 75 Marjory Magill William Kileen MillMek The usual editorial " we " wasn ' t just a figure of speech this year, for your 1943 Millidek was edited by Mary Frances Griner, ' 43, and Marjory Magill, ' 44.

Now that you know who ' s responsible, be sure you shoot the right people. 77 YOU DONT LIKE ™ WE CHANGE TM Stmdeitit Comecil The Student Council has been quite busy during the past year since it not only fulfilled its regular job of guidance for all student committees and functions, but also supervised the revision of the constitution. Foremost among the accomplishments was the finishing of the Student Lounge. The Council also gave the service flag and plaque, sponsored the annual carnival, and appointed the several editors for the Decaturian. Much more activity has been seen in the Council this year, and a special assembly was held to get the students ' views on the reorganization movement.

As one of the oldest scholastic organizations on the Milli- kin campus, it is a privilege to become a member of Pi Mu Theta. All girls are eligible for membership provided they have maintained a 3. or " B " average during their first three years in college. Each fall, the Pi Mu ' s are in charge of selling the green ribbons to freshman girls. The proceeds from this sale are used to provide a scholarship for some junior girl. This junior girl is chosen on the basis of scholarship, need, and participa- tion in extra-curricular activities.

Last fall this organization sold blue caps to all freshman men. Proceeds from the sale went into a scholarship fund from which an award will be made to some deserving member. Initiation of members takes place in the spring, and at this time eligible junior men are invited to join Alpha Omega. The officers for the past year were: President — Ray Galligar Vice-President — Harold Lee Secretary-Treasurer — Jack Holloway G.

Second row: Wolfe, Lovely, J. Williams, Hackman, M, Johnston, S. Smith, Purdue. First row: Dally, Feeney, Lambert, Green, Wasson, I. McDaniels, Larsen. The Indees are a growing group. This year they were a large, active campus organization. Half the student body were Independents, a fifth of them regularly active. This year especially, they improved their position in Intramural Athletics, both boys and girls intramurals, and in school elections as well. A long list of excellent speakers came to the Monday night meetings held in the Home Economics Lounge where the Indees gathered for business and fun. The big weiner roast held in Fairview Park m September was followed by a half hour of group singing led by Mr. Van Buskirk. The annual Homecoming Banquet in October was held at the First Presbyterian Church with Jack HoUoway as toastmaster. (Our thanks to the group of Indee mothers who prepared that lovely meal.) Thanks also to Mother Nature, for the hayride planned in November did not have to be called off. After raining all day, it stopped just as we reached the f arm north of Decatur and " boarded " the hay rack. 84 Shirley Smith ' s orchestra made its first appearance at the All-School dance and later in the year, they played for sev- eral of the soldier dances on Saturday nights. The last meet- ing in December, just before the Christmas vacation, was a carolling party. Other activities were a taffy pull M hich was held in Dean Hess ' home, a theatre party, a hike, dances, and the annual Easter program with fane Wasson as chairman, and Anita Ell- sperman as director of the choir. One of the highlights of the year has been the active and friendly cooperation of the Indee advisor. Professor Rollefson ' . The organization had two presidents this year. Robert E. Wilson with strong support, started the year out right, and when he graduated at midyear. Jack Holloway, vice-president, moved into the president ' s place and led the Indees on to even greater achievements. Other officers were Ralph Hubble, vice-president, second semester, Irene Eilers, secretary, and Helen Wilson, treasurer. 85 Panhellenic Couiicil The purpose of the Panhellenic Council is to promote friendship and cooperation between the sororities of J.M.U. This organization is composed of the representatives of the five Greek sororities and is responsible for coordinating their programs. Every year Panhellenic sets up the rules for rushing of new students and publishes a pamphlet for their benefit. This pamphlet gives them all of the rules and regulations for formal rushing and a schedule of all of the rushing events for the fall semester. This group is also in charge of the Panhellenic Sing, an annual event looked forward to by townspeople and partici- pating sororities and fraternities alike, for it is one of the most impressive occasions of the year. 88 Alpha Chi Omega The loss of several of their members during the past sum- mer did not affect the girls on West William for long, and they swung into an active year when the fall semester opened. On October 3, the active and alumnae chapters sponsored a U.S.O. dance, and the next day they gave an Open House Tea to introduce their new housemother, Mrs. McMuUen. On October 22, the Alpha Chi pledges gave a " Kickoff " tea dance for freshmen and fraternity men. That week-end the actives honored the pledges at a " Gypsy Jive " dance at the house. 90 When the list of " Who ' s Who " came out, the Alpha Chis were very proud of Virginia Fryxell who won the honor of being on the list. " Fryxie " was president both of Pi Mu Theta and Conant besides being active in W.A.A. Adele Gaetjens was president of W.A.A. and secretary of Panhellenic. Mar- jorie Funk served as intramural manager of W.A.A. The Alpha Chi Christmas Formal was held December 4 at the Masonic Temple with Johnny Moreland ' s orchestra play- ing. You should have seen those beautiful gals in their formals " tripping the light fantastic! " Martha Williams was president of the Home Ec club, and other Alpha Chis who were members include Peg Baker, Sue Bodkin, Marj Funk, Doris Parish, and Marian Hecht. Martha was also on the patronage committee for the Town and Gown play and Mary Alice Walters served on the property com- mittee.

The Delta Delta Delta Founder ' s Day Dinner was held No- vember 20, and they opened their house to campus friends at a tea December 13. Several exchange parties were held, and the year ' s calendar came to a successful finish with the tradi- tional Pansy Breakfast for Senior women just before grad- uation.

Mary Martha Harder Roselyn Schmalenberger Vice-President Marjory Magill Bernice Wagner Secretary Eunice Larrick Velda Gerber Treasurer Velda Gerber Chaperon — Mrs. Stanley Broughton 93 Pi Beta Phi This year was a very active and successful one for the Pi Phi ' s. Throughout the year they brought honors to dear old Pi Phi and ended with quite a number of them. On Oc- tober 19, the pledges entertained other freshmen and fraternity men at a " Sunset Serenade " tea dance, and their new house- mother was introduced to the campus at a tea October 18. Mary Morrow reigned as Homecoming Queen with Bever- ly Reed as one of her attendants. " Dee Dee " Freeh and " Midge " Peters were two of Millikin ' s cheerleaders. This was " Dee Dee ' s " first year at it but was Midge ' s second. In class elections, too, the Pi Phis came out with their share. Pat Cur- ran, who was an assistant in the Math department, was Secre- 94 tary of the Senior Class. " Izzy " Osgood and Pat McGee were Vice-president and Secretary of the Sophomore Class, respec- tively, and Mary Jones served as Secretary of the Freshman Class. The Pi Phis also had the honor of having three of their sen- iors listed in " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Univer- sities. " Their president, Betty Ann Bailey, who was also vice- president of the Student Council, vice-president of Pi Mu Theta and chairman of the Chapel Committee, was one, as were Jeanne Hanson, president of Pi Kappa Delta, and Virginia Traughber, who is known for her stage work and who was editor of the Decaturian the first semester of this year. The fall Town and Gown play, " Candle in the Wind, " again brought to light the acting ability of " Bev " Reed, and " Ish " Hershey also played in it.

Those girls are really " all right " when it comes to showing their guests a good timel The Thetas had the honor of having one of their pledges represent Millikin as drum majorette. She was Wanda Mals- bury, a cute red-headed freshman. She led the band in their marching formations at all home football games. Gerry Edler was quite an outstanding person this year. She was one of the Junior Student Council members and was on the committee for the revision of the Student Council, as 96 well as serving as Treasurer of Panhellenic and being a mem- ber of Conant. She also worked on the Decaturian. Mary- Anne Hampson served on the Decaturian business staff as of- fice manager. The Theta Christmas formal was held December 12 in the Rainbow Room of the Hotel Orlando, and the girls and their dates all had a wonderful time. The officers of Theta Upsilon for the year were: President — Geraldine Edler Vice-President — Flora Spitler Secretary — Mary Anne Hampson Treasurer — Eileen Ritchie 97 Zeta Tan Alpha This year was a very active one for the girls from the house on the corner. They lost quite a number of girls over the summer, but those left tried hard to make up for the loss. They started out with a Homecoming Dinner at the house at which they entertained about fifty of their alumnae. They assisted the alumnae chapter in sponsoring a U.S.O. dance in October and held an unofficial open house for the service men the next day. The girls really " got around " when it came to activities on campus. " Debby " Barr was Society editor of the Decaturian, on the committee for the revision of the Student Council, and on the property committee for the Town and Gown play.

However, the presidents of Tau Kappa Epsilon, Delta Sigma Phi, and Sigma Alpha Epsilon have worked in close cooperation with each other and with the University in maintaining as many of their usual activities as possible. 100 Delta Sigma PM As usual, the Delta Sigs were very much " on the beat " in activities this year. They pledged twenty-five fellows in the fall, and several more during the year. They managed to roll out of their beds in time to make their eight o ' clock classes and have their fingers in almost every pie on the campus. With around fifty of their boys in the armed services they had quite a time living up to their former reputation, but suc- ceeded admirably. John Garver, besides his many activities in Pi Kappa Delta, Decaturian, Town and Gown plays and Student Council, still had time to give the freshman girls a thrill and keep up his usual high scholastic average. The Delta Sigs also boasted three out of the four class presidents, Wagner, Fischer and Burdick, Senior, Sophomore and Fresh- man, respectively. Speaki ng of Wagner, Millikin ' s B.M.O.C. again this year, besides the senior presidency, he was listed in " Who ' s Who, " was captain of Millikin untied and unde- 102 feated football team, and on the varsity basketball and base- ball teams. Virg ended a high successful career by being named to the half-back position of the Little AU-Amencan col- lege eleven. That " shy " (?) boy really got around. Gerry Brewer and Jack Huss were also first-stringers on the Big Blue this year. Ray Galligar served as president of Alpha Omega and Frank Traver was the freshman representative on the Student Council. Intramurals again were led by the Delta Sigs for the sixth consecutive year, until the loss , of men to the armed services made it necessary to discontinue this cam- pus activity. The Delta Sigs gave many exchange parties and house dances, and their Christmas formal, pledge and initiation dances were the usual " bang-up " affairs. The annual Christ- mas party was again held at the chapter house for members, also several smokers and stags were held throughout the school year. The traditional steak and mush dinner was held at the end of the first nine-weeks period, with a good percent- age of steak eaters this year. The service flag in the front window of the chapter house, presented by the Mothers ' Club, proudly displays the number of men that have gone into almost every branch of service. To these men we wish the best of luck and hope that we may soon see them again on the campus.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon The S.A.E. ' s started off in the fall with a group of 55 men. Their annual pledge dance was held in the Millikin Gym with Johnny Moreland ' s orchestra playing. The theme of this dance was blue denims, and the pledges gave entertainment featur- ing the swing quartet — Wendell Wilson, Jim Grace, Scott Chap- pell, and Ed Andrews. The chapter had an open house tea October 11. The Homecoming banquet and Dad ' s Day dinner were also held at the house. The Christmas formal was a dinner dance at the Decatur Club on December 19, with George Hudson ' s orchestra from St. Louis. A number of alumni in the service were able to attend. During the year the S.A.E. ' s had some of the sorori- ties at the house for exchange parties. A number of members and pledges have been called to military duty, but a large number of the men are in reserve branches of the Army, Navy and Marines. Some of the outstanding men and their activities are as follows: Seniors: Robert Vaughn was out for football and basket- ball. Robert Moorehead was on the Chapel Committee. Jack Miller was on the football team, track captain, and received the Athletic Scholarship award. Bill McGaughey was on the Student Council and made " Who ' s Who. " Bill worked as photographer for the Millidek during the second semester. 104 Juniors: Frank Miller, Glen Lauher, Leonard Scott and Frank Poneta were on the football team. Poneta was basketball manager, and Phil Pearce was Intramural manager. Sophomores: Scott Smart was organization treasurer and on the Student Council.

Their social calendar was one which kept the fellows busy most of the time. There were many rushing parties and exchange parties. The annual Harvest Hop was held in October and was an unusually successful affair. It was climaxed with the crowning of a Harvest Hop queen. The Tekes participated in many activities on campus also. Bill Kileen was business manager of the Millidek and official campus photographer. He and his camera were to be found at almost any place on the campus at any time, and some of those 106 pictures he made were really something to look at! Also on the Millidek staff was Frank Godwin who acted as advertising manager when Bill left for the army. Bob Whitacre and Jack Allen did their bit for old T.K.E. although they could be found " socializing " at any and all times. (Luck Kay and " Callie " !) Wendell Jones appeared in the fall Town and Gown play, " Candle in the Wind, " as one of those Nazi soldiers. Gene Cottle served as assistant in the Math department, and can he make those figures talk! Another Teke to be seen guite a lot on campus was Jerry Reece. The Tekes held several house dances and potlucks throughout the year, and their Christmas formal was an " extra super " affair. The Army call came early in the New Year, and the Tekes went to do their part with memories of a fine year and the hope for bigger and better years to come. The officers of Tau Kappa Epsilon for the year were: President — Roy Ousley Vice-President — Girard Keil V Secretary — Robert Lighthall Treasurer — Gerald Reece Back row: Ashby, Hastings, Dunn, Conley, Reed, O ' Connor, Bascom, Ryherd, Byrnes.

The Big Blue eeked out a 7 to 0 win in a terrific rainstorm. This game was played on the John ' s Hill athletic field. The touchdown was " Belleville to Belleville " as Virg Wagner passed to right halfback Eddie Dahm who was in the end zone. Dahm converted the extra point and made this the Big Blue ' s tenth straight victory. The second game of the season, but the first conference game, at Mon- mouth saw Millikin come through with a score of 14 to 6. Again, Wagner and Dahm were the main " drivers. " Virg went over for a touchdown from the two yard line. A little later, he passed to Dahm which was good for forty yards and the second touchdown. Dahm made the extra point after both touch- downs. October 10 was an open date. The Homecoming game was played on October 17 and saw the Big Blue roll over Knox by a score of 28 to 6. This was the last Homecoming game for six seniors — Virg Wagner and Eddie Dahm, star halfbacks; jarring Jerry Brewer, fullbacks; Bob Vaughn and Jack Miller, ends; and a great guard. Perry Mcintosh. In this game, Wagner ran 35 and 60 yards for two scores, while Dahm and Poneta accounted for the other two touchdowns. Eddie Dahm kicked all four points after scores. 110 JUT THE LAST GAVE US VICTOMY 3 . BREWER Fullback WILT Quarterback On October 24, the Green Wave of Wesleyan was crushed by the Big Blue, 49 to 12. At half-time, Millikin held a 22 to 12 lead as the Blue had chalked up three touchdowns. Two of these were by Wag- ner, and one by Dahm who also converted twice, A safety was also registered against the Green Wave in this first half. The second half was a " steam- roller " attack as Millikin scored four more touch- downs and " automatic " Ed Dahm took care of all four points after touchdowns. In the fifth game of the season, Millikin rolled over Eastern Illinois 56 to 6. At half-time in this game, the score was 23 to 0, but in the third quarter, the Big Blue crossed Eastern ' s goal four times. This ran the score up to 50 to 0. Eddie Dahm converted for six points and scored once; Virg Wagner crossed over for a touchdown four times; Jerry Brewer twice; and Jim Williams once. The highlights of the con- test came in a 70 yard dash by Wagner, a 54 yard sprint by Brewer, and a neat interception by Wil- liams which was good for 40 yards. This made the fourteenth straight victory for the Big Blue. HUBS HEELY McINTOSH Right Guard DAVENPORT HELM LAUHER Left Guard DENTON McFADDEN PONETA Center On November 14, Millikin went to Lake Forest where the Blue came through by a score of 13 to 7. The Gold Coasters proved tough, but the Blue man- aged to turn their threats except for the one attack which resulted in Lake Forest ' s only score. Wagner scored once, as did Eddie Dahm. This marked the Blue ' s fourth conference triumph. Millikin ran into its toughest opposition at Illi- nois College on November 21. However, the Big Blue proved its ability to fight and to take punish- ment as it defeated Illinois 7 to 0. Wagner and Dahm, on successive first downs late in the second quarter, carried the ball to the two yard line. Virg went over for the touchdown, and Eddie converted for the extra point. These victories gave Millikin its second unde- feated and untied season. Coach Fuzzy Sutherd deserves a great deal of credit for bringing his team through two such " history-making " seasons as these last two. Millikin has now piled up sixteen straight victories — something which has never before hap- pened in the annals of J.M.U. athletics. Ill PUHLEEZ COACH SEND ME IN Baseball Millikin began its baseball season by winning 5 to 3 over Illinois Normal. This contest was well-pitched by Virg Wagner, with Poneto and O ' Neal show- ing power at bat. Coach Goff ' s boys suffered a setback in their next en- counter with Normal. However, after this loss, the Blue got on the beam and won the next four games by defeating Illinois College 13 to 12, and 6 to 5; and by defeating Eastern Illinois 6 to 4, and 5 to 4. The first nine who played the entire series, was made up of O ' Neal, Wohl- heuter, Pearce, Franklin, Wilt, Pollock, Ayars, Poneta, and Wagner. One of the outstanding aspects of the season was Virg Wagner ' s completion of every game. Also, Virg pitched three victories in five days, which is a record any way you look at it. Bob Anderson, Verne Roby, Harrison Fischer, and Harold Deakins were understudies, but none of them had a chance to break into the lineup. 113 CI!?{OW]])S . . . WHIS11.es CHEERS WAGNER Forward VOTRAIN Forward KEIL Forward AVARS Center The Blue and White cagers, under their new coach, " Pirn " Goff, got off to a rather inauspicious start as they dropped their first four contests. Evansville, Charleston, and Normal, all non-conference games, " took " Millikin, and the fourth set- back was by North Central. The Blue countered in the next battle with a decisive win over Lake Forest. In the remainder of the season, Millikin " blew hot, " then " cold. " However, the Big Blue really snapped out of it at the end with a thrilling victory over Wesleyan, which was one of the best, if not the best team in the conference. The season was ended with a thorough and decisive victory over Illinois College. Millikin ' s record for the season was six games won 114 SPRIGGS Guard WILLIAMS DAHM WILT Center ' Guard Guard and ten games lost — a not too impressive record, but a satis- factory one in view of the difficulties which Coach Goff and the team ran into — the draft for example. Captain Don Wilt, Virg Wagner, John Votrain, Girard Kail, Eddie Dahm, and Walt Boyd made up the regular team and all were men with previous varsity experience. Allen Ayars, a freshman, saw considerable action and gave promise of becoming a good eager. Gordon Bennett, Dale Long, and several other freshmen rounded out the squad. Coach Goff and his cagers should be given a rousing cheer for carrying on under the abnormal conditions which existed this year. The Big Blue will " get rolling " again just as soon as its men finish helping " roll over " the Axis. 115 WINSOME, A(GILE, AND ATFRACTIVE Back row: Kuhns, Munch, Crow, Cuppy, Curran, Ferrer, Schmalenberger.

W.A.A. was organized last fall with a large membership of one hundred girls. With Adele Gaetjens, president, Irene Eilers, vice-president, Charlotte Caldwell, secretary, and Phyllis Reece, treasurer, the girls started the year by holding a weiner roast at Camp Kiwanis. At this meeting, the point system was explained to the new members. Pim Goff was the speaker ' for the November meeting, and told some of the interesting facts concerning basketball. A bicycle hike was held in the spring. Intramural sports were somewhat handicapped by the fact that the Millikin gymnasium had to be used for the soldiers. In spite of this, soccer, basketball, deck tennis and softball were played either in the Millikin gym or the Woodrow Wilson Jr. High gym. The Independents and the Alpha Chi ' s tied for first place in soccer, and the Tri Delts took second place. The Tri Delts won all their deck tennis games, so were first with the Inde- pendents and the Alpha Chi ' s in second and third places re- spectively. The basketball season, which was interrupted by the arrival of the soldiers, was finally finished in the Woodrow Wilson gym. The Tri Delts and Pi Phi ' s tied for first place in this sport. Senior girls who received senior jackets this year were Ellen Feeney, Adele Gaetjens, Pat Curran, Rosie Schmalen- berger, and Frances Spence. Frances Spence was also chosen as the W.A.A. girl. Intramural managers for the year were Marjorie Funk, Virginia Freeh, Charlotte Caldwell, Jean Aide, and Mary Ann Hampson. 116 THAT ' S J.M.U. ' S W.A.A. GIML Frances Spence Frances Spence, senior Tri Delta from Chicago, was the W.A.A. girl this year. " Fritz " was chosen by vote of the wom- ens sports editors, the officers of W.A.A., and the intramural managers. It was a difficult job for this committee to choose one girl from the group of five outstanding candidates which included Pat Curran, Ellen Feeney, Adele Gaetjens and Rose- lyn Schmalenberger. " Fritz " was chosen on the basis of her scholarship, service to W.A.A. , leadership, skill, other activi- ties, sportsmanship, and personality. Feeney Spence Schmalenberger Curran Gaetjens Homecomieg Queen Tradition was tossed aside this year when Mary Morrow, Pi Phi senior, was elected Home- coming queen on a write-in ballot. Her court was made up of nine Tri-Delts and one Pi Phi. Those in her court were Kay Daigh, Clarine Leonard, Roselyn Schmalenberger, and Eleanor Ann Schroeder, seniors; Carolyn Carmack, Mar- jory Magill, and Beverly Reed, juniors; Eunice Larrick and Lois Long, sophomores; and Belle Calmes, freshman. The coronation was unusually effective this year. The queen and her court were dressed in white formals, and a blue spotlight was turned on them during the ceremony. 120 This year the Decaturian, through the Asso- ciated Collegiate Digest and Press, sponsored a War Bond Queen contest. Any girl was eli- gible to enter the contest at Millikm, but to be considered for the national award, she had to be Millikin ' s queen and have a minimum of 1,875 votes. Mary Jones, freshman Pi Phi, was crowned Bond Queen at the Millikin dance for the Army Air Corps men. An extra edition of the " DEC " announced the queen. A grand march took place before the coronation, and the cadets formed the aisle of march, saluting the queen as she approached the throne. The crown, made of red, white, and blue flowers, was cov- ered with $18.75 worth of war stamps. Mary received her crown from Cadet Lt. Col. Shackle- ford. Running a close second was Clarine Leonard, ' Tri-Delt senior. Others in the queen ' s court were Betty Shaw, Alpha Chi; Jean Aide, Indee; Wanda Malsbury, Theta U; and Ruth Sutton, Zeta. 121 SNAPSHOTS CALENDAM ADVEMTISEKS INDEX TO MILLIKIN STUDENTS AND BOOSTEMS.

Today, the Millikin graduates of the Class of ' 43 go forth into the world as much a pioneer as any. Today, they face a world at war. The increased tempo of the industrial front has opened new worlds in every direction. New meth- ods, new materials, new uses must be found, and quickly, in order to help Uncle Sam and our Allies win this war. There is an urgent need for those who can pioneer — for those who dare explore unknown fields of science, industry, or business to discover a better or faster way of doing a thing. . . . And, so, our congratulations go to the Class of ' 43 and to all of the student body of J. M. U. They are pioneers, alll - - MUELLER, too, has been a pioneer. Founded in 1857, many of the inventions and improvements of the water, gas, and plumbing industries were first conceived by MUELLER. For 86 years many firms all over America have learned to rely upon MUELLER Brass Goods. MUELLER CO. DECATUR ILLINOIS 135 G R I N 1 S M I L E 1 LAUGH] A Nation That Can Laugh is Never Defeated!

Sure miss you. In spite of gas ration " Baldy " Dickinson really gets around to the Greek formals. There v ere eight of them this month. Betty Ann Bailey and Jack Hollov ay are Vi earing Kappa keys. Murder! Normal not only beat us 47-38, but Don Wilt stubbed his toe. Plenty fussed about Virg Wagner being a Little Ail-American, Perry Mcintosh receiving honorable mention, and Millikin being the Best Little College Team in the country. Saw Ruth Crawford with Harold Lee ' s pin. A good deal. Lucy Pierce skipped Yokel ' s Saturday morn- ing class to marry Bob Maxwell and Sunday, Elizabeth Lee became Mrs. John Allen. The Millikin cookies came across with some wonderful dames. The Home Economics Club ' s bond drive un- der Mary Williams ' Chairmanship sold $2,500 ' s worth of bonds. We heard today that we are going to have 300 soldiers here. Hope you are one of them. Wild about the C.P.T. boys — all ten of them. Am dreaming of a white Christmas .... Love, Blue Millie January 8, 1943 Dear Corporal, Promoted Already! I see you ' re as fast in the army as you were at Millikin. What are you doing down there, besides bragging on the drag? I got your picture yesterday — who hung that mess on you or where did you get that good looking uniform? Say, darling, have you heard that Velda Ger- ber, Suzy Bodkin, Marilyn Hatcher, Gloria Brad- shaw, and Betty Boyd were engaged? My ring size is 4y2. Get it? Mary Martha Harder is the new Delta Delta et cetera president. Bill McGaughey will do the honors for the S.A.E. ' s — what honors? To get down to something serious, we were really saddened by the news of the death of Joe McLaughlin and Roy Hindman, two of our greatest soldiers. Hobby Lobby featured Ralph Stilwell ' s vibra- phone last week. Music Maestro, please! The student lounge has some mighty pretty pictures, good bridge games, and, of course, George Burgher.

The Alpha Chi Ouija board claims Hitler is dead. So, come on home, darling. What ' s cooking at the Zeta House — cookies? Plant you now. Dig you later. Love, Millie P.S.: Still blue. February 19, 1943 Dear Sergeant, Another promotion] I ' m mighty proud of you and truer words have never been spoken through falser teeth. Thanks for the valentine, but are my feet really that big? Well, listen, sarge, how about pullin ' the foolin ' ? There isn ' t a man left here but Wes Knuppel, and Shirley Smith is censoring his bridge. Not that I ' m interested in mere men! I like ser- geants — this month. Still cooking on twin burners are the Roby- Gaetgens, Fierce-Leonard, McGaughey-Os- good, Miller-Calmes, Chappell-Daigh, Roy- Long, and Altoff-John combinations. Red rimmed glasses on little lasses in col- lege classes are my favorite dish. School has certainly picked up since Pauline Mercer turned up. Measles — along with Flaherty — found their way back to Millikin this spring — the only dif- ference is that the measles puts them to bed and Flaherty keeps them up for they ' re both catchy. Gene Cottle hung his Teke pin on Gloria Graham. Ditto the hanging for Dick Flanders and Barbara Smith; Wendy Wilson and Mary Jones. Cupid also hit Helen Leach and Alfred Deverel. Taflinger mailed his pin to Norman from Camp Adair, Oregon. Now Texas isn ' t that far. Darling! You remember the bracelet you promised me if I passed calculus? What would it be worth to you if I relieved you of the expense? Think my scholastic standing is sitting down. Love, Millie. P.S.: Ain ' t droolin ' with schoolin ' . March 19, 1943 Dear Staff Sergeant, 1 would love to be on your staff, but since I can ' t I ' ll harvest the corn at the old mill till the lights go on again. The girls at Aston Hall are like street cars— they come and go — or maybe they had moths. Anyway, we shall have barracks. And the soldiers are wonderful!!! You can ' t keep up with Fryxie. She ' s writ- •♦■if .! Calcedar of Events ing obituaries for the Decatur Advertiser. She says it ' s deadly work. George Ecklund led out in the moonlight pa- rade this month by hanging his pin on Carlo Caldwell. Surprise! Surprise! Virginia Valiton and Dr. Hottes announced their engagement, Mary Jones made a beautiful bond queen and was crowned by student Lieutenant Col. Shackleford. Wendy Wilson was as proud as a pumpkin. Among the khaki-wacky couples are Mary Lou Carnegie and Tommy Samuels, Mary Jane Haan and Norman Hoft, Marylee McClmtick and Claude Barrett, Gloria Glover and Wally Ledford, Tillie Roby and Bill Porter. Sue Bodkin doesn ' t want to set the world on fire, but why should anyone want to burn up her philosophy paper? Cutest couples I ' ve seen are Mary Lou Grothe and Bob MacMillan and Charlene Norris and Bubber Healy. Parish, Reed, Paschal, Dancey, Fryxie, and Clevenger put over a screwy Town and Gown play called " Ladies in Retirement. " Imagine Bob Parish with all those women! And Dancey with all those soldiers! Of course, I tell " All " the soldiers I ' m saving myself for you. Love, Millie P.S.: It isn ' t just daylight saving, either. April 20, 1943 Dear Officer-Candidate, I told Dad that you were going to officer ' s school to become an officer and a gentleman. He said you better moke up your mind for you couldn ' t be both. Don ' t know what he meant. The new fashions over at the S.A.E. kid party were the same things in bars as last year. Shirley Friedinger was mighty happy when Sgt. Dick Bliler came home from Tampa, Florida. The new Home Ec. Club president Irene Fil- ers is reading booklets on biscuits, brats, and beans via Travis and Mcintosh. Hear she is allergic to flour. Speaking of allergies, what is this about Phil Pearce and cosmetics? There ' s nothing doing every minute here. Of course, 1 would rather do nothing with you, darling. We ' re actually going to have a spring vacation!! The high school girls are complaining because we monopolize the sol- diers. Well, perhaps, we do learn something m college after all. The Phi Mus are house- cleaning. Must be expecting company, I hope. We had another big old open house for the soldiers. The telephones have been buzzing with gusto 154 FOOD ARCADE HIGH GRADE MEAT FATTED POULTRY FANCY FRUITS AND VEGETABLES The Complete Market , WE CATER TO FRATERNITIES AND SORORITIES 134-38 Merchant St. Phone 4238 4.

Seems that Denny Pease and Scotty Chappell miss them. Mary Lawson and Warren Abrams won the Brown debate. Ann Pilcher and Roy West, Betty Aulabough and Jesse Jacobs, Eunice Larrick and Nonis Domanque, Marian Hecht and J. J. West, Mar- cia Stookey and Jerry Bigelow, and Mary Alice Walters and John C. Rhyre, Jr., are the latest addition to the Millikin double or nothing club. And Bette Hudspeth gets around so fast I never can get the license number. Then June Kincaid and Elaine Towne have also hooked some big fish right off the reservation. What a Carnival! ! The Theta U ' s had a peep show — " bored of education " they claim. The Tri Delts sold kisses — can you imagine what with all those beautiful babies they have? The Alpha Chis moved their loaded dice in for a good take, I hear. Did you have to wait to propose till April Fool ' s Day? Love, Millie P.S.: It was a good idea, thoughll! May 20, 1943 My Favorite Officer, Pull up a back fence and lean over. Here it is graduation time and I was elected as the girl most likely to seed. The way the seniors talk you would think that it was something to graduate. I would rather stay here. I prob- ably will. Marcia Stookey was elected president of the student council. She and Bill McGaughey cer- tainly turned out a spring fomal for us rookies that was a mean cookie. Jean Dancey read to us in chapel. She sure- ly is a brainstorm from a rainstorm. The Pan-Hel sing was mostly a musical that made me enthusical. Dean — I had A Dream, Dear — Miller stole the show as usual. What with Velda Gerber ' s beautiful concert and George Ecklund ' s Phi Mu Variety show, I feel pretty hep. Carolyn Carmack gave a real breakfast for the Home Ec club. Those girls surely look funny so early in the morning after the night before. Some of the seniors have jobs already. Bet- ty Ann Bailey has a scholarship to U. of I. Mavis Munch will work in the Massachusetts General Hospital. She ' ll be a not in the diet kitchen snitching snacks and ditching dishes. Dr. Yokel said I would go far, too. Love, Millie P.S.: Not o nly that, he got out on the road and pointed. Koll of Stiuideets Abbott, Dale, 47 Abbott, Eileen, 27, 66, 80, 116 Abrams, Warren, 47, 67, 74 Achenback, Troy, . .
