From the academic hall to the athletic field the factors that. in a broader sense. add up to school spirit are lacking. Why? An invisible something tends to keep these quested potentialities in a dormant state. Many times during the past year-Homecoming. the championship conference bas- ketball games. the entertaining Phi Mu Alpha asembly-student comments almost started the trend rolling but all was lost in the ebb of later disinterest. 47111, .-.v a,:'r -Sl-.-dQ5rv.4Ai-C .'2.1-.."U'- nf'-" L' L.

V Foremost in President Malone's consideration this year, as always since his arrival on the Millikin campus, has been sincere efforts toward the improve- ment and guidance of Millikin. His interest in students has been the impelling rnotiveg Millikin's achievements, the potential goal in a program of expansion and improvement designed to keep Millikin foremost among colleges in Illinois. His friendly personality, sympathy and understanding have helped guide our students to inspiration and comfort-in scholastic and in Christian living. OUR DEANS DEAN MILLER Dean Miller is responsible for much of the ease with which campus and scholastic tangles are straightened and seeming difficulties cor- rected. With Millikin growing rapidly, it has been no easy task to schedule classes avoiding student and professor conflicts, While still co- ordinating the various veteran programs. He has been invaluable in keeping the spirit and smoothness of Millikin at a high level, while still being a true friend of his students. DEAN MAXWELL Dean Maxwell has spent much time and thought in keeping alive the social calendar at Millikin, regulating and advising the various social organizations in her capacity as dean of Women. She has given her confidence and assistance to all students, and has been sincere in her serious efforts to aid them. For her un- selfishness and willingness to listen to anyones problems the student body of Millikin is in- debted to her. 'SEQ-' ADMINISTRATION VETERANS' OFFICE Left to right: Helen McKinley, Marjorie Droste, Lynn Fischer. You may think you've been in some fast Whirlwinds or cyclones, but you ain't seen nothing yet till you hit the Vet's office on regis- tration day or on any other day of the Week. The individual doing all the huffing and puffing and keeping the 375.00 a month boys happy is one-Dean Ploenges. "Ploeng" probably hears more T.S. stories in a day, in his capacity as Vet's counselor than most chaplains did in a month handling the boys' troubles in service. Everyone either Wants his check or is petition- ing to get back in the fold-this the dean handles with the air of a professional diplomat. A vote of thanks from every veteran is indeed in order for the splendid job Dean Ploenges has done on behalf of their general welfare. To handle the overflow of correspondence questionnaires and proverbial VA. red tape the dean is assisted by two secretaries, Mrs, Helen McKinley and Mrs. Marjorie Droste. Mrs, Lynn Fischer serves as clerk processing grocery slips. Dean Ploenges ADMINISTRATION BUSINESS OFFICE , - Ui f,"'i1 i . J Left to right: Mrs. Glasscock, Miss Boland, Miss Munch, Mrs. Westfall, Mrs. Goodrich, Mrs. Midkiff. The business office under the rigid guidance of H. Wayne Gill regulates all the receipts and disbursements of the university. Under these general administrative tasks come such items as salaries, payment of bills, veterans' accounts, housing, and tuition. As a side line the business office operates the switchboard and the student bank. The secret of the business office's success lies in a staff of capable Workers. Mrs. Mary Glasscock is secretary to Mr. Gill and Mrs. Ruth Westfall is bookkeeper. Miss Fern Boland is Hank G-ill the assistant treasurer and Miss Gertrude Munch, the assistant secretary. Mrs. Bonnie Goodrich and Mrs. Maye Midkiff serve in the capacity of general clerks. ADMINISTRATION Left to nght Mrs Langrand Mrs Nivin Miss Coale, Miss Cameron, Miss Drennan, Mrs. Wait. GENERAL OFFICE There could be no better title for this office than "general" because this is Where the cogs of adrninistration turn. Almost every administration problem passes through the hands of these six Well chosen assistants. Such tasks as preparing transcripts, proces- sing adrnissions, checking attendance, filing grades, plus other sundry odd jobs that point towards efficient administration are part of the daily business of the office. Merrill Cameron serves as secretary to the president, Mrs. Sophia Langrand is secretary to the deans, and Iean Coale is secretary to the director of admissions. Mrs. Anna lean Wait extends help and information at the receptionists desk, While Mrs. Anna Marie Nivin puts the finger on attendance violators. Miss Drennan has the important job of keep- ing the As and B's straight as recorder. Byron Kerns As the new registrar and pro- fessor of psychology, Mr. Kerns has already become a sincere and valuable friend to the stu- dents at Millikin. His interest, co-operation and ever-ready sense of humor have made him the type of faculty member Mil- likin has long valued. ADMINISTRATION Raymond R. Brewer There is a warm spot in the hearts of all university students for Dr. Brewer. A friendly per- son, he has had near'ly all stu- dents in his religion classes at some time. As director of public relations and field representa- tive, he has travelled to practic- ally every town in Illinois to introduce high school seniors to Millilcin. Emerson Abendroth Filling the newly-created posi- tion of Dean of Chapel, Mr. Abendroth has given to our chapel ceremonies a new vigor- ousness and sense of Christian accomplishment. His quiet man- ner, helpfulness and laughing good humor have already made him one of the rnost pop- ular of the staff. FACULTY , -vw. , an L. ,x ' i - G.

Irish, Pease. Williams l '7!w For three years We've listened to senior classes say goodbye, watched them tear up the place on their senior picnic and generally make the poor college fathers shake their heads in woe. But if you think that was bad-"you ain't seen nothing yet!" The class of '48 is dif- ferent. We started out with freshmen in l944 and . . . seniors are graduating. The uni- versity has grown along with us. Why we can remember back when-there were no trailers, Dr. Gage handled the history department all by himself, we had our Homecoming dance in the front hall, Campus City was a vacant lot, athletics were a nonentity and the Millikin Men's Club carried on bravely with a limited, very limited enrollment. During our sophomore year, peace was de- clared and the fun and excitement we'd heard so much about became a part of Millilcin life. K 2625 SENIOR CLASS omcsns Reme Seam 61644 Barracks and trailers sprung up like mush- rooms, there were faculty increases to accom- modate the swelling enrollment, and the class of '48 did their part in putting Millikin on the map. The athletic department, with the help of some of the now graduating seniors, gave Millikin a conference championship in both basketball and baseball, and repeated it the following spring with an undefeated record in baseball. Athletic events weren't the only things we excelled in, dramatics, publications, home economics, debate, and all the other activities received their share of attention from us. Yes, we're proud of our class. We've been here a long time it seems, and we've had some bad times and some good ones. The bad ones we'll forget-the good ones will mean Millikin to us-Millikin and the class of '48. President ....... ..... D on Williams Vice-President ....... Mary Louise Irish Secretary ..... ....

Dunnell lFrontD Shroyer, Dickinson 5 '7!w S Basking in their new-found superiority, the sophomores have shed their greenness, and have advanced in standing as upperclassmen. The first half of their college life has been completed with unusual success. They were new in the activities and organizations at Mil- likin, but they now hold quite an active part in student campus life. Many of these second- year students have shown signs of becoming promising class and individual leaders. Ex- celling in the fields of publications, organiza- tions, and athletics, the future looks extremely bright as they take on greater responsibilities. Being the largest class, the sophomores were Well-represented in campus affairs: Lester Bak- 61.444 er was elected student body president, Iim Teckenbrock served as homecoming co-chair- man, Paul Davidson directed the WSSF drivep fohn Kluga headed the lndees, and Bob Roach, Bob McDonell, Sterling Boyer, Io Ann McDonell, Iulie Young, lean Cornwell and Iohn Kluga served on the student council. Don Shroyer Was captain-elect of the "Big Blue" football team, Bill Day, Bob Murray, Iohn Malerich, Eddie Root, "Butch" Esker, and Bud Orrnand helped pave the Way to the basketball cham- pionship. In the field of publications, lim Teck- enbrock was co-editor of the Millidek.

Thomas All the way from Bagdad to Greece to Hawaii and from California to New York to Florida-came our Millikin freshman class. These freshmen, number- ing over four hundred, journeyed to Millikin with various goals in mind. Many of these goals have since been changed because the students have matured a great deal from the people they were at registration. They have increased their knowledge, thus strengthening their intellectual character. They have met new friends with whom they have shared both joys and sorrows. They have participated in a varied and extensive social program which helped them to forget some of the tribulations of life at college. With these things as of background, our freshman class has shown a potential strength. Several individuals of this class have already made outstanding contri- butions to the school. Roy Lewis, freshman presidenty Bill Thomas, vice-presi- dent, Bob Pensinger, secretary, and George Chilligiris, treasurer, have all helped the class in many ways. In sports Ioe Naughton and Scotty Steagall would be listed as the outstanding freshmen in their respective fields of foot- ball and basketball. Our freshman class then has leaders in the class room and on the playing field. With leaders such as the ones mentioned and with cooperation of the entire freshman class, the future of Millikin depends. 4:62a FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS President ...... ..

This year, for the first time, the Deca- turian operated as the project for the journalism class. Buryl Engleman, man- aging editor of the Decatur Review, taught the class. One hour's credit is given for work on the Decaturian through the journalism class. The Decaturian tries to maintain the same standards of accurate reporting and freedom of the press as do the "big-town" dailies. A teacher-rating poll was sponsored by the Decaturian in February. Rating blanks were distributed to the students to be filled out and returned. The re- sults were tabulated and shown to the instructors before publication. The idea was a new one for Millikin, but not for the university world. The poll was not intended to be a popularity poll, pitting one instructor against another, but rather to show the instructor how well his teachings were illustrated.

A rt Allaben Advisers Dorothy McClure Francis Brown Claude Dicks The Student Council has had various func- tions during the year. Among the social func- tions were the annual Sadie Hawkins Dance, the Christmas Formal, and the Sweetheart Dance, which was a leap year reverse affair this year. A variety show under Student Coun- cil sponsorship was presented in fanuary. Vari- ous regular matters, such as appointing editors and business managers of the Millidek and Decaturian, sponsoring the WSSF drive, con- ducting student body elections, appointing Homecoming chairman, serving on the Student Faculty Committee, etc., were carried out. The council was organized into committees includ- ing the executive, social, publicity, Sub, and finance committees. Much time was spent con- sidering changes in and additions to the con- stitution and making definite policies about certain student matters, so that the Student Council might .function in the future as a more efficient Student Body Government. K762 The chapel committee is responsible for ar- ranging for the religious services held each Week, Frequently students assisted in leading the service, and occasionally arranged an en- tire student-conducted service. This year the chapel committee was made up of three students selected from the student body at large, three from the Student Christian Chapel Committee Donald Cox, E. I. Abend- roth, James Henderson, IHCIU. Association, and three from the faculty. Be- sides those pictured, Ianice Vann, Dr. Brewer, and Dr. Dicks served on the committee. The University choir and Robert Keener as- sisted the committee by providing music for chapel. The messages which speakers brought during the year added much to the spiritual life on campus. Student Christian Association Iohn Fink, Stephen Herz, Robert Williams, Doris Lee Ellison, Shirley Noland, E. I. Abendroth. The Student Christian Association is a new venture on campus. In its growing stages, it is not primarily a membership organization, but rather a group ot students interested in promoting and coordinating campus religious lite. The cabinet, made up of officers and com- mittee chairmen, has guided the organization. The SCA has been interested in the chapel programs, religious emphasis week, and the WSSF campaign. Besides providing assistance for these projects, it has conducted regular Bible discussions. Leadership has also been provided for nearby churches, a community chapel, and many religious services in the area.

Emmy Lee Buchmcmn Conant Society, honorary organization for outstanding students in the English depart- ment, climaxed a very successful year with a spring banquet, which it is hoped Will develop into an annual event. Cash prizes for the best poetry and short stories submitted for publica- tion in the Conant Come-t were awarded as a feature of the banquet. Conant sponsored the Clare Tree Major players' production of "Macbeth" in February. The cash receipts from this venture were suf- ficient to provide the financial awards for the spring writing contest. Sponsoring a similar production each spring has become one of the most student-approved ventures ever' under- taken by the society. The first formal meeting of the group was held at the Pi Beta Phi house, Miss Davida McCaslin gave a short history of Conant, its formation, and its founder, Miss Grace Conant, a former professor of English at Millikin. Stand- ing committees for the year were appointed by Rosie Buchinann, vice-president, in the ab- sence of the president. The Christmas program, traditionally com- plete with wassail and holly, was held at the Delta Delta Delta house. Miss McCaslin read Yuletide poetry that has come down to us through the ages. At a meeting held at the Zeta Tau Alpha house David Felts from the Decatur Herald spoke on his experiences as a contributor to newspapers and magazines. Spring meetings were devoted to a discus- sion and exhibition of art, arranged by Mr. Neal, and to a music hour by contemporary artists. .

The Indees were activated several years ago when the Millikin Men's Association and the WAA banded together' into one strong club. The prime purpose of the association is to provide social functions for students who would otherwise have few outside activities. In the short time the Indees have been an active campus organization, the annual "Sock Hop" and the Spring Formal have become traditional club functions. This year the 'group adopted gray and green as organizational colors. Eunice Heideman, a music major, composed the new Indee song. Mr. Glen Smith has served the group as faculty adviser.

By giving its members some acquaintance with the fine creations and achievements of the German people, the Ger- man Club hopes to play a part in building a lasting and harmonious peace, and in promot- ing international understanding. One of the most delightful events of the German Club year Was its traditional Weih- nachtsfest in which Christmas was celebrated with all the customs and music of Old Germany. "Silent Night" took on added beauty when sung in the language of its origin by the nearly one hundred people attending the meeting. The first year students were guests. Another' highlight of the year was a presen- tation of the opera "Tannhauser" by vocal artists, records and spoken commentaries. Other programs of the year included the show- ing of films taken by Dr. Ross in her travels through Germany and Switzerland: a discus- sion of German universities and education by Dr. Hans Wolffg a Wiener roastg a picnicp and an open meeting in April. The April meeting presented a program of German music and literature. A typical German Ratskeller serv- ing German food and featuring German dances and singing afforded a novel bit of entertain- ment. lst Row, sitting: R. Hutchens, A. Kopetz, M. Henson, I.

A letter giving a short history and the present day life in France was received and read to the club. Included in the program were French songs and Word games which enabled students to improve their use of the language. A project to collect money for the purchase of milk for the children of France was carried out very successfully.

Aston Hall brightened that first trying week of registration and nostalgic crowd-loneliness with a record-mixer in the dining room. The welcome mat was out for any one passing by, stag or dated, the chairs and tables were stowed away, and the floor was sprinkled with a can of boric powder bor- rowed from the infirm. lt was loads' of fun . . . like that after-movie date in the kitchen at home. One beautiful Sunday in October, we put on our Sunday Best and enter'- tained a host of Millikinites with an open-house tea, and thanks to Gladys Howett, Aston Hall's own artist and council president, the color scheme en- hancing the punch bowl was something to be envied by lack Frost himself. Thanksgiving brought an air of formality mingled with a home-spun aroma of roast turkey and cranberries. The usual hub-bub and clatter of a hundred girls descending to the dining room gave way to a soft disturbance of rustling skirts and special-occasion conversations as we entered the dining room mysteriously cozy in candlelight. 448652 ASTO HALL Bottom row: Sorrells, Anderson, Faulkner, Winslow, A.

Christmas came, and in addition to the dazzling tree by the fireplace in the living roorn, a sparkle on several third-finger, left-hands. On a night in lanuary We tied White satin ribbon to candle sticks in the dining room and honored two starry-eyed brides-to-be, now Mrs. David Libbon, and Mrs. Francis Marsh. The year's finale was a happy, yet rather tearful, event when we honored the graduating girls of the Hall-the Senior Dinner. To the seniors, no matter how bright their futures may seem, these last years at Millikin probably become a little more cherished and difficult to leave. Going away means leaving some wonderful friends, some gloriously good times ,and Mrs. Walker, an unforgettable housernother.

At the beginning of school this year the SAl's and Phi Mu's gave a get-acquainted party for all conservatory students. This party marked the opening of the conservatory lounge and served as a pre-rush party for both organi- zations. Sigma Alpha lota presented Elizabeth Travis, a member of the Conservatory faculty, in a piano concert on Friday, October l0, in Albert Taylor Hall. The concert was highlighted by the presence of Annis Fuleihan who composed one of her selections, "Air and Fugue on White Keys." The SAI's presented an Arabian musical skit on the homecoming variety show in October featuring Iacqueline Matthews as soloist. A series of rush parties followed completion of the first nine weeks of school and was cli- maxed by the Annual Rose Tea given by the alumnae in the home of Mrs. Byron Merris. On December 13, the following music students were pledged: Marie Hackman, Betty Bissey, Doris Bailey, Virginia Wilson, Iean Syfert, Betty Far- ley, Carol Orr, Betty Miller, Shirley Smith, Martha Soffas, Iune Schroeder, Iean Davis, Lila Hall.

Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia is a campus organiza- tion devoted to music students and other musi- :ians attending the conservatory and university. Naturally, the members of Phi Mu Alpha are in the limelight of nearly every musical activity. On the campus and in town the Phi Mu's have Won a reputation for musical excellence. On the campus, the Phi Mus provided music for the Homecoming Variety Show. This in- cluded a fine dance band which played two Stan Kenton compositions, a novelty by Ralph Stillwell and a vocal by Archer Logan. The annual Phi Mu all-American show, a program of American music presented every year by the organization, was especially outstanding this year. American music was played and sung by prominent soloists and ensembles in a revue with several novelty and comedy acts. The production was given by all of the actives and pledges of Phi Mu Alpha and was written and directed by members of Phi Mu. The theme of the revue was the age-old conflict between popular and classical music and included a few side references to the Petrillo record ban. During the Christmas season a group of Phi Mu's sang especially prepared Christmas carols at various places around the campus and in town. Some places included in the caroling were Macon County Hospital, Dr. Malone's residence and all of the fraternity and sorority houses. This is the second year the Phi Mu's have helped establish the Christmas spirit and they hope to make caroling an annual event. Phi Mu Alpha is acquiring a reputation off campus through the activities of various mem- bers who are prominent in town. Archer Logan has been heard many times in Decatur and is soloist at the First Presbyterian Church. Ioe Bearden's dance orchestra is becoming well- known among citizens of Decatur, having played a number of club dates as well as cam- pus dances. Other members who are promin- ent in local dance bands are lack Eadie, Dick Ritcher and Bruce Hayden. CONCERT BAND Under the able direction of Mr. Howard Akers, the Concert Band has taken a prominent place in Millikin activities. Besides helping to spur our football team on, the band took part in the Homecoming pep rally and parade and ended the first part of the year with a Christmas concert on December 14. On April 23 the band participated in a concert and show called "Millikin Musical Moods" at Kintner Gym. This show was sponsored by the Decatur Lions Club. Also on this date, the band gave a concert for all the students of Decatur schools at Kintner Gym. A Spring tour was made by the band to surrounding towns after these performances and a brilliant season was ended by the Annual Spring Concert in May. The student body also looked forward to several assemblies of which the band was in charge. The band now numbers 80 fine musicians who have done much toward maintaining school spirit as well as furnishing this vicinity with fine music. Without the capable and enthusiastic direction of Mr. Akers, the band would probably not have accomplished the many things that it has this year. The band has just recently ordered new uniforms for next year and Mr. Akers still has high hopes of securing even more equipment which will enable the band to do even finer work in the future. 6922 CHOIR The Millikin choir, under the able direction of William R. Fischer, has had a very successful year. The greatly increased enrollment now numbers ll5. The choir has faithfully appeared in Chapel throughout the year, as well as presenting the Messiah at the Masonic Temple in December and the annual Spring Concert in Taylor Hall. The choir trip, most important event of the year, was again cancelled due to the housing shortage, but in its place the choir took short one-day trips to neighboring towns. These trips were enjoyed by all, but everyone is still anticipating the traditional choir trip in the near future. An additional honor was paid to the choir when Mr. Fischer, baritone, won the prelirninaries and finally represented the State of lllinois in a nation- wide contest at Carnegie Hall on February 22. Mr, Fischer's sense of humor and understanding nature toward the choir Were an inspiration to all who worked under him. Without his loyalty and interest, the choir would not have been so successful in all that they undertook. A great deal of credit should be given to both the choir and Mr. Fischer for their outstanding contribution. 44932 X fl X .

The work of Panhellenic consists mainly in planning the fall rushing sched- ule and supervising the rushing period in regard to regulations set up for the benefit of all organizations represented. All matters concerning Greek organi- zations are settled by the Womens Panhellenic Council and the men's Inter- fraternity Council. Panhellenic's purpose is to bring about co-operation between campus groups. A reception for all new women students was the first of the council's activities last fall, and Panhellenic will start plans for a dance sponsored by the sororities and fraternities. As is tradition, this spring the council presented the annual Pan-Hel sing, which has become one of the major campus events. Q962 . , I i'.,f4f I 1' u lf' , , . v 'Q 1.

Sitting: Bill Drennan TKE, Mr. Olsen, Dr. Smith, Les Baker DSP, Paul Tolly DSP, Richard Griffith TKE, Mr. Lancaster, Ralph Wilcox SAE, Bill Rotz SAE, Iames A. Teckenbrock SAE. The Inter-Fraternity Council is made up of three members from each fraternity along with the respective faculty advisers. Dean Miller acts as representative for the administration. The purpose of the Inter-Fraternity Council is to promote good will and to bring about a better understanding on matters concerning the fraternities and the administration. Its pow- ers are limited to advisory capacity except on subjects pertaining directly to the lnter'-Fratern- ity Council. The only officers of the Council are Treasurer, George Gilmore, and Secretary, Richard Griffith. In the Spring of '47, the Council sponsored a banquet in honor of the basketball team. The dinner was highly successful, followed by an equally interesting address by Coach Leo Iohnson of University of Illinois. This function is to be an annual affair sponsored by the Inter- Fraternity Council. One of the main events of the year was the Inter-Fraternity Ball held in March, 1947. The three fraternities and Phi Mu Alpha joined in planning and attending the dance held in the Masonic Temple. The dance was financed by each fraternity on the basis of the number of men in each. By popular request the Ball is to be given each year in the spring term, as was done this year. The Council also keeps in constant Contact with other Inter-Fraternity Councils on other campuses. lt keeps abreast with new ideas in matters concerning Greek organizations. This fall an exchange dinner was held at the De- catur Club with the Inter-Fraternity Council of Illinois Wesleyan as guests. The purpose was to facilitate better understanding between the two schools. lt was agreed that rivalry was to be placed on a purely competitive basis and we take pride in saying that it was accoin- plished successfully. "A lot of friends can be made over a cup of coffee" and, keeping that in mind, the Councils at Illinois Wesleyan and Millikin Sponsored a "coffee hour" before the basketball game so that the students from both campuses could become better acquainted. "Co-operation plus" was accomplished this year and the Council looks forward to continu- ing this progressive leadership for the unifica- tion of Greek interests. 61082 Qfgl ir -21 LM: Xia: LJQ + ,M X l' X1 if My AI' - 2 j B, fix . -'?3.g.- Q, .V V , ,q'Ffff lil' , J. aj' gg, ll ,,,' 1 M 'W .

The traditional pledge dance in the fall started the social season with a swing, or is it "swat" Not to be outdone, the pledges retali- ated by giving a hayride for the active chapter, complete with cider, song, moon, and blazing bonfire. A Mexican Christmas was the surprise theme of the winter formal at the Orlando, providing a novel and exciting way to distribute the dance favors. St. Patricks Day brought the first record dance of the new semester with decorations, theme, and spirit in keeping with the tradition of the Irish. The May formal was a complete success-bringing to a perfect close another successful Delta Sig year.

The big emphasis is being laid on building for the future. So far, extensive repair and remodeling work has been done on the house, a complete paint job being the main project during the summer' vacation. Financially, the chapter is in better shape than ever, The "Spirit" of Delta Sigma Phi, that nebulous something that has made it outstanding among campus organizations, is once more running at a level comparable to that of pre-War years.

Athletic Director Marshall Wells ended his fifth year as gridiron coach for the Big Blue with fair success. Within one Week after school started, there were 75 gridders on the field Working out under his guidance. With Wells directing on the sidelines and Captain "Dutch" Denton on the field, Millikin came through With a record of three Wins, four losses, and a scoreless tie with their' old rival Wesleyan, to place sixth in the Little Nine Conference. For the fourth consecutive year the Big Blue success- fully defended their basketball crown. Ralph Allen took over the vacancy left by Don Lindeberg last year and moulded Althoff, Steagall, Williams, Shea, and Boot into a Well balanced machine that won several thrilling ball games by the margin of a few points. National recog- nition Was denied the Big Blue though, as they dropped a three point decision to Southern at Carbondale District Tourney. Prank Poneta, former I.M.U. athlete, stepped from the ranks of player to that of coach as he took over the management of Millikin intramural activities and direc- tion of the Big Blue diamond squad. Eight lettermen re- mained froni last year's conference championship team. The resignation of Marshall Wells as Director of Ath- letics was announced last February. He accepted a po- sition as football line coach at the University of Colorado. Ralph Allen, highly successful in his first year at I.M.U., was named as his successor.

During the 47-48 campaign the Blue cagers pounded the hoops for l4l4 points, to come up with a game average of 60.6. Scott Steagall contributed the most points to this total by dropping in 299 markers in the seasor1's play. 5 Millikin started off the season with a rush, rolling over Principia 73-42 and Elmhurst 60-43, but then hit the skids and fell into their one and only losing streak. They lost to Normal, Eastern, Southern, and Cape Girardeau in succession. They did not hit the victory trail until they won over Arkansas State in a charity game at Taylorville. The Big Blue then entered the Beloit tour- nament and eliminated Ripon and Washburn before bowing to Beloit in the tourney windup. Returning home, the Millikin cagers took revenge for their previous loss to Southern by giving them a 7l-52 drubbing. The Blue lengthened their victory string to four in a row before losing to lllinois College 52-43. After this defeat the Big Blue ran up their biggest win streak of the season by taking the remaining eight games. They toppled power- ful Eastern, North Central, Western, Wesleyan, Principia, Lake Forest, Augustana, and Car- thage. In the second Principia game Ralph Allen's cagers ran up their seasons largest win mar'- gin by crushing them 85-46. ' Millikin, by virtue of the conference cham- pionship, entered the N.l.A.B. district playoff at Carbondale. ln the first game of the tour- nament the Big Blue had an easy time de- feating Quincy College, 53-39, but then lost out when Southern won the championship game by three points 61-58. Althoff and Steagall brought honors to the Millikin campus when they were selected by the Collegiate Magazine as the members of the all Mid-West basketball team for minor' colleges. Althoff was also selected as one of the first five on the all-conference team, and Williams and Steagall were on the second team. -S f 334 QE 1 .nk "il -fl .- rf -L4, 1 x - 'QE D I ,E X W 0 xl X ' 3 .

She was chosen by Iiznmy Dorsey and crowned between halves of the football game by President Eber Spence of the Millikin Alumni Association. Five girls, one from each social organization on the campus, made up her court. The zeal of the student committees, headed by co-chairmen Robert Gilason and Iames Teckenbrock, and the co-operation of alumni produced a spirit of enthusiasm from the Friday noon pep assembly to the closing dance of Timmy Dorsey's orchestra. Hard Work and planning produced the finest parade of floats ever sent down the streets of Decatur. Caught by the spirit of making the l947 Homecoming the greatest yet, every group outdid previous Alai! Queen! HOMECOMING 1947 house and float decorations in clever, original ideas. Iudging was difficult with so many ex- cellent entries. The cup for house decoration Went to Sigma Alpha Epsilon, to Pi Beta Phi, the float trophy. The giant pep-assembly served as the kick- off to Homecoming Events, followed by the traditional Freshman-Sophomore scraps. Fri- day night's bonfire, Talent Show and final pep- rally set the scene for the spotlighted gridiron clash with our traditional rival Wesleyan. Highlighting all events of the l947 Homecom- ing was the first appearance of a name band on the Millikin campus, namely Iinimy Dorsey. One thousand couples jammed the Armory for the closing event in a successful Homecoming weekend. 2 D if 'Q' 9119 Aj 0173 0 O W. , Dondggto DQXK Dflq Chjcgrver Dewi mega Io Ann Laws Indee 9' V ws- - .
