production of IQQ7
Tiie lights Hash across tile set, the script girl settles comfortably into
her chair, and the greatest factor of the production, the director takes his
place in a prominent spot. Throughout the numerous scenes. his hands
express his commands. A stop signal, a summons to draw nearer for a
short consultation, advice, guidance, teaching, all comes from the master
Actors, technicians, and each one concerned with the production keep
their eyes focused on the director, following every instruction carefully
for full assurance of a perfect scene every time.

DR. RAYMOND R. BREWER DEAN C. L. MILLER RUTH A. MAXWELL
Director of Admissions Dean of Women
The administrative heads of James Millikin University have
completed another successful and lousy year. Their respon-
sibilities have been that of planning and arranging for the
increased student enrollment, changes in the currculum, and
all of the post War needs during our transitional period at
The 19117 iV1i11icie1c ec1itoria1 and husiness staffs are happy to dedicate this
annual to Dorothy McClure, who has heen head of the VVomen's Athletic De-
partment at Miliikin for e1even years. "Dorf, as she is known to the students,
graduated in 1929 from the University of Illinois Where she received her BS.
degree in physical education. She a1so ohtainect her NLA. degree through graci-
uate Work at Columbia.
Miss McCIure's accomplishments in the physical education department have
been many in that she has heen successful in the instigation ot a wen rounded
and organized sports program for women students. Her interest in sports as a
method ot ciean competition, respect for opponents' ahiiities, and in general team
spirit have clone much to strengthen the VVomen's Athletic Association to which
she is adviser. "Dons" heiief that every girl, even those not outstanding in ath-
letics, should have equai opportunity to participate in 2111 sports, is responsihie for
the point system used to record participation so that each girl has the same chance
to win her numerals, ietter, etc. This cumuiative method of ohtaining points has
caused a great c1ea1 of active interest in piaying and studying techniques and
regulations of various heneficial sports for women. Proof ot this is the extensive
growth of VV. A. A. to over 150 memhers in the past few years. With high group
spirit "Dorn has heen ahie to arrange competition with other schools and tourna-
ments in which iV1i11i1cin girls have exhihitect the fine sportsmanship and clean play
which has become a part of the women's physical education curricula at Millikin.
In addition to the teaching ot physical education and related courses "Dorn
taught first aid to 1200 air cadets during the war and has served as adviser to the
Red Cross College Unit. Student vote has repeatedly elected her to acivise the
student council for several years in succession. The many summers of camp work
and her association with young people at Miliikin have made Miss McClure a
very capahie guide and friend to all ot the student hociy. Physical development
and learning to work as a unit for a common purpose will help many of us in the
future, thus we appreciate the work of Niiss iV1cC1ure.

The Chapel Committee has many fine achieve-
ments to loolc baclc on at the end ot this year as a
result ol: the line Cooperation ot its members, and
their enthusiastic elliorts to achieve the goals ot
the committee. The goals were: to promote Chris-
tian spirit on the Campus, and to urge the students
to take an active part in religious aliairs by plac-
ing before them suggestions and reminders of
The HGo to Church Promotion Committeeu
was headed by Beverly Vvoare, of the Chapel
Committee, and is responsible for the display ot
religious books and pamphlets concerning the vari-
ous churches in Decatur. Also a map showing the
location ot all churches in Decatur was shown
on the table in the library study room.
it was also the work of the committee which
resulted in the hanging of a bulletin board out-
side Dr. lVlalone's office for the special purpose of
posting information about various activities in
the churches from time to time.
Besides these two accomplishments, the Chapel
Committee also secured two plans to be used as
decorations on the stage for chapel programs,
members of the committee worlced with faculty
members to provide Christmas music during the
weelc before Christmas vacation, also. Nlarian
lwenlc was in charge of Religious Emphasis Week
this year with Dr. Luther Stein as the speaker and
the traditional lViay brealciast was given.
This year the committee tried something which
had never been done before, but which was felt
to be an appropriate project lor such a group.
The plan was to talce students oi the university
out to various churches in the small towns near
Decatur, and conduct morning or evening services.
Jack Hart was in charge of this project, and toolc
programs to several churches during the year.
An attempt was macle by the committee this
year to lay the foundation for the organization of
some type ol' Christian organization for students in
the next year or so.
Gther student members ot the committee are:
Jaclc Dunnell, Eunice Heidemann, Lee Ellison,
Betty Allen, and Wznlter Walker.

The rhythmic tapping of feet and the smooth swaying of bodies can mean but
one thing-the hand of Phi NIU Alpha. This organization has certainly fulfilled
the expectations of a Weil planned year. Besides their activities, the men have

for dances held in the Main Hall and also presented a full length program in

The Barretts of Wimpoie Street. ciassic of the
theater, was presented hy Town and Gown
Players on March 14th and 15th, 1947.
The play was not released for amateur produc-
tion until early in January, 1947, and for this
reason, Town and Gown can he counted as one
of the tirst amateur groups to produce it. This,
in itself, is another laurel for Dr. L. C. McNabb
and Town and Gown.
Katherine Cornell created the roie oi Elizabeth
in the original stage piay. Bette Davis took the
role in the movie version. And Alice Horecicy por-
trayed Elizabeth in the Tff G. production. The

This play was a romantic drama in five acts
set during the Elizabethan Period in England.
Honors in the three leads were aimost evenly
divided, hut to Alice Horecicy, as Elizabeth. goes
top hitting. Herbert Joys however, both portrayed
and presented the cavaiier-Robert Browning.
Lynn Wooten. lone Town player, ahiy presented
the difficult role of the stern, obsessed "Papa" of
the Barrett household.
Flush, the ioiacic spaniei. was very theatrical
and seemed to sense his presence in the play. in
private life, he is Cookie Vviiiiams of Campus
The entire cast deserves Commendation for

The Nliiiiiiin choir, uncler the ciirection of Vviiiiam R. Fischer, has had a
very successful year. The enrollment of 100 was the largest group for many years.
The choir appeared in Chapel throughout the year, and hesicies the Wicssiaii. the
choir presented its Annual Laboratory Choir Concert. Selections hy unicnown
composers for women's voices, womcn's or mixed voices with accompaniment, and
mixed voices, were submitted to a committee of judges, who chose the most out-
standing selection in each group. 'These three selections and other works enterecl
in the contest were presented in Albert Taylor Hail on Niarch 16, to an audience
of town people and students. The soloists in this concert were Doris Danni,
Jeritza Garland, Alice Hortinstein, Alice Weiciner, and Shirley Linciros.
The choir trip, most exciting event of the year, was canceiieci chic to the tacit
of transportation and housing accommodations, but thoughts of the coming years
are always present.
A special tribute goes to Mr. Fischer for without his interest anti ioyaity, the
choir would never have succeeded in all it unciertooic. A tot of wort: went hehinci
each performance and Mr. Fischexfs ever present sense of humor anct uncierstanciing
nature were assets and inspirations to all who worked under him. Great creciit
should he given to the choir and Wir. Fischer for a triumphant year.

On December 19, 1946, the Miliikin choir presented the Nlessiah, in part,
under the capable direction of William R. Fischer. Lack of rehearsal time made
it necessary to omit several of the selections. The performance was attended by a
majority of town people which made it necessary to give a repeat performance in
Chapel for the benefit of the student body. There were a large number of solo
parts and those in solo positions were Alice Vveiclner, Doris Danni, Betty Lou
Kriege, Alice Hortinstein, Elinor Goodrich, Shirley Linclros, Caroline Adams,
Vvarnie Tippett, Hugh Mullins, Stanley Kimes, and Art Munson. The accompani-
ment was played by Esther Farrell, at the piano, and the orchestra, also under
the direction of Mr. Fischer. During the performance, records were made which
were later played over Station VVSOY. It was an outstanding performance, one
that was appreciated greatly.
