PLOENGES, who this year more than hefore has accepted a great responsihitity for our University and has proven himself more than worthy of the task. Professor Ptoenges is more than just another professor, more than just a veterans officer, more than an assistant dean, he is truly the friend of every student on our campus, particulary the veterans. His counseling has the extra advice of a friend in it that the returning veteran needs. Very few men would have attempted to do the tremendous taste that he did at mid-year registration this year. tt toot: many. many extra hours of work. hut although he enjovs hard wort: he did it not just as a day,s wortc, he did it in order that we might henetit most from our GI Billy he it for us. We coutdn,t truly picture Professor Ptoenges hy printing a posed portrait of him hecause he is a man ot action att the time. We who have had the pleasure of tcnowing him through our tour years of cottege can picture him in many characteristic ways. Qur first meeting is usuatty 'in his office when he studies our papers and hecomes acquainted with our cases as wett as with us as individuals. Vve can,t help hut always remember that degree of speciat interest that he shows in us as individuals not as just another student. Anyone who has spent more than fifteen minutes with him tcnows that current events, tocat. national, and international, are his pastimes. tn spare moments one of his most favorite things to do is to sit hack in a chair and digest the news from a current issue ot some authori- tative weetcty news magazine. He always tries to read hoth sides ot disputes and then enjoys evaluating them. Those of us who have tween fortunate enough to have had a mathematics course from him Witt always rememher him showing us the Ptoenges method of using a Ustip-stictcfy We can never forget the method he uses in explaining formulae on a diagram at the hoard and that yard stictc he always has in the classroom to strike the points ot interest in a prohtem into our memories hy means of gestures in pointing them out with the stictc. We att titre his styte and what he teaches stictcs. too. A Between ctasses or between husy periods in the office he takes a couple of minutes out for a smotce in the supply store, hut is never content to stand there doing nothing. If he isn,t tattiing to a student, he is looking over new material of academic nature. Httohn, how goes it?U HTom, you matting it ah'ight?H "Bill, what,s new with you today?n These and a wide variety of other friendly greetings are heard when he meets students in the tounge or suppty store. Vve at Ntittitcin are grateful for having you with us Professor Ptoenges and we do appreciate att the things you do for us. We feet that you give us something we can carry away with us that helps more than we could say in att the pages of this hootc.

Vvaiter Malone became president of Miilikin on January first and already We have come to have great admiration for this man who will guide Millikin to its goal of advancement. Although President Malone has not been with us long and has been away on university Business con- siderably most of us have had the privilege of becoming acquainted with him. His friendly personality inspires our Whole campus. Un the previous page Dr. Raymond R. Brewer, Director of Public Relations, and Dean C. L.

A pamphlet is puh- lished to give new students a candid- view of the rules anct regulations of rushing and a schedule of social events for the season. These pamphlets are given to the rushees in the tau. The council tried something new this year. Instead of the Panhetlenic tea, a picnic was held at Camp Kiwanis to open rush Week.

The main goal of the committee this past year has loeen two-fold: to promote more religious activities on campus, and to foster christian spirit on campus. This year, the memhers of the committee tried something newg they sponsored Supper-Discussion Groups in the college cafeteria on the second Sunday of every month. All interested students and 'towns- people were invited to attend these meetings and four students constituted a panel which discussed some phase of social, economic or religious prohlems. Dr. Daniel J. Gage, Dr. Charles Leese, and Dr. J. Walter lxflalone acted as moderators for these panels. The highlight of the year was the Christmas Chapel, which was quite different, as well as heautiiul and impressive. Student memhers of the committee originated the whole program. Cther student memloers of the committee are: Elsie Branom, Patricia Patriclc, Beverly Vvoare, Ruth Purdue. H e752 ' ,45- -Qkd-.',. , - rw, "' ---..-x.1pr- -vi.

At first the staff attempted to keep up with the changes hy making hi-Weekly addi- tions then hy the middle of December that hecalne futile and the first of February it was evident that the 1946 Millidek would he that full size post War yearhoolc that We all had hoped for since 1943. A Although Miilitcin was no longer hit hy the War, material for covers was still short so that presented the biggest problem in our increasing numbers. Then since all schools were increasing their hooks the engrav- ers were swamped with Work at the last minute so a little delay took place hut with these exceptions we hope the hook lacks any traces of a War time hook. Bin Kiieen edited the hook and made an the photographs with the exception of the individual pictures and some of the snapshots. Ellen Quinn did an of the cartoons in the calendar section While the rest of the editorial staff helped with pasting up the pictures and securing data for the hook. Joan Rambo secured the advertising with the help of her staff and managed the hook to see to it that the editorial staff had enough money deposited with the council treasurer to pay its obligations to photograph- ers, engravers, printers, and hinders.
