Text from Pages 1 - 192 of the 1951 volume:

L3 If . I 7 Foreword Success is dependent on two factors, organization and cooperation. The most vital of the two, though, is cooperation. In any group, athletic, business, peace, or war, it is cooperation between factions, smaller groups, and people that makes a success of a job. So it is in college too. A Student Council can ' t be effective without the cooperation of the student body and the faculty; the athletic department can ' t be suc- cessful without the cooperation of the student body and the faculty; and the administration can ' t be a success without the same cooperation. The past war serves as a grim reminder to us of what cooperation can do, and the impending crisis is going to call for that same cooperation. Everything starts at home, so let ' s all get our heads above water, let ' s start cooperating with each other here at OUR University, and let ' s make a success of our college so we can make a bigger success in later life. 9 Aston Hall, incoming queens, new campus material spacious lawn, towering oaks, Mrs. Walker ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ Westminster Church, Wednesday chapel some good and some bad, " Abbey, " Dean Miller ' s announcements on the draft The main building, housing our main worries the faculty, the class rooms, and, of course, the lower hall . . . . FACULTY SENIORS JUNIORS SOPHOMORES FRESHMEN Smiling, pleasant, and ever ready to help, that ' s Doctor Malone. Though he carries the worries of our University with him at all times Doctor Malone is never too preoccupied to pass a good word along and flash his ever present smile. His good will and helpful attitude are a constant reminder to us that there is a lot more to being a University President than just sitting in an office and passing out bad news. « 16 » DEAN MILLER A good organization must, out of necessity, have able and willing leaders. Dean Miller is the man on our campus who hears all the complaints of students, faculty, and towns-people. It is his ability to listen with an open mind and settle the many picayunish problems of our Univer- sity that makes him the invaluable man he is. Often harrassed and criticized to a point beyond reason, Dean Miller is con- stantly on the job as mediator and second in command to Dr. Malone. DEAN FALVEY There are more difficult jobs in the world, but anyone will agree that the job of keeping six or seven hundred Millikin women happy is no soft touch. Dean Falvey is the woman who gets the credit for doing a job that is far from glamorous, and has more than its share of headaches. Her pleasant personality, facility for re- membering names, is credit to herself and the college. Dean Falvey is a hit with the student body and administration both. « 17 » « 18 » Biology Department Elizabeth H. Weatherford. Max A. Proffitt, Virginia Weigel Athletic Department Henry J. Keil.

Meeting every Friday afternoon in the back of the Sub, the Council has revised the constitution to give the students more say in campus affairs, thrown dances that have been both financial and social successes, and raised a little more school spirit. The Sadie Hawkins dance, the Sweetheart dance, and the Variety show were all successful Student Council enterprises.

Besides producing an abundant supply of scandals each week, the Decaturian also collects news and views, and has, this year, smothered the students with information. With a willing, able and competent staff the paper went ahead and kept us up to date on the more obscure points of college life. One reason the Dec was so good on keeping up with the news, was that the office is a favorite hang-out for all fugitives from the rush ing, underground life of the lower hall. The Dec office is one of the few social focals in the school, and probably the most popular. Sports Staff Business Staff Talbert. Young. McKinney. Dunkelberg Harm, Weidering. Strickler.

WHO ' S WHO This year twenty Millikin students, all seniors, have been elected to lepresent the university in this year ' s edition of " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities " . Selection here at Millikin is made by first receiv- ing nominations from various campus social organizations which are then checked by a group of faculty and students who narrow down the list. It is then submitted to " Who ' s Who " for approval. Only college juniors, seniors, and graduate students are acceptable. Nominating committees consider the student ' s scholarship, leadership and participation in extra-curricular activities, his citizenship and service, and his promise of future success. There is no competition between various universi- ties submitting nominees. Two of the number chosen were also listed in last year ' s " Who ' s Who " publication. They are Scott Steagall and Paul Berry. « 68 » STUDENT CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION The S. C. A. began its activities early in the year by sponsoring the Freshman Camp. This group continues to keep busy throughout the year. Weekly meetings are held and many of its members rose at the crack of dawn each day for morning devotions. S. C. A. is in charge of the activities which take place during Religious Emphasis Week. One of the biggest projects was the spon- soring of entertainment and Sunday services at the T. B. Sanatorium. The S. C. A. was also co-chairman of the W. S. S. F. drive. This group was led by Jerry Lewis, presi- dent; JoAnn Williams, vice-president; and Marian Campbell, secretary-treasurer. Dean Emerson Abendroth was the chaplain for this group. Back Row: Williams, Epperson, Morse, Barone, Carson, Webb, True, Evans, Rice, Saurman, Bolen, Kinkaid, Loucks, Lewis.

Their full schedule has included concerts in Peoria, Warrensburg, Hammond, Arthur, Mt. Zion, Decatur High, Woodrow Wilson Jr. High, and for the Lions Club. The end of their traveling will be a three day tour in the southern part of the state. The choir sings here at Millikin at the Wednesday chapel services, and at the student assembly program. The group has made two broadcasts, and a number of recordings. The chorus and the choir joined with forces at Christmas to present Handel ' s Messiah. In the spring semester they joined with the concert band and gave a truly outstanding performance. Although the choir practices only twice a week they present only the highest type of choral music, and under the excellent direction of Mr. Howard Akers it does a very fine job. CONCERT BAND 4?, The Millikin Concert band gave school spirit a boost this year by playing for the home football games at half-time, and con- tributing at various times to pep activities through the year. The band was also an essential part of the Homecoming celebrations. Not to be disillusioned, we saw the band in a more dignified performance in its annual student assembly concert. The band has also been active in spreading the fame and name of Millikin University in the surrounding area by going on several road trips. They played at various towns, some of which are Finley, Argenta, and Moweaqua. The band is also one of the major participants in annual spring concert put on by our famous school of music. This is one of the biggest performances of the year. Under the inspired leadership of Mr. Howard Akers the band this year followed in the path of outstanding musical ability that has constantly been our goal. « 76 » i Ain Row 1: Cruise, Cox, Becker, Zi, Tertocha, Williams, Walden, Schroeder, Henricks, Adams, VanNess, Kareotes, Hv lK Row 2: Kelley, Farley, Crowell, Geisler, Adderton, Burd, N.

The council is composed of the president and rush captain of each organization, with Dean Fran- ces Falvey as advisor. It is the main task of the Council to make and enforce the rushing rules but they also hold some social functions of their own. The fall rushing season was opened with the annual Panhellenic Tec and it was brought to a close after pledging ceremonies by a dinner attended by all members and new pledges of each organization. The two big events of the year were the Panhellenic dance which was held at the Hotel Orlando in November and the Millikin Sing given in April. PANHELLENIC COUNCIL « 78 » INTER-FRATERNITY COUNCIL Relations are strengthened between the three male Greek fraternities by meetings held once a month by the Inter-Fraternity Council. Two elected representatives and the president of each of the groups convene with Mr. Ray- burn, Mr. Jack Allen, and Deans Miller and Ploenges for the furthering of better inter - fraternity understanding. The Council has really been busy this year and they have a lot to show for their work. During Homecoming their project was to sell pennants so that a trophy case might be pur- chased to put in the hall. The first floor of Kintner Gym is now reserved for students; thanks to the work of the Council. Since our basketball team, again this year, won the conference championship, the council will sponsor a banguet honoring them. The Council surprised us this year by hav- ing a picnic-dance instead of the usual Inter- fraternity Ball. Nelson Park was the scene of this affair and a good time was had by all.

We put our best foot forward at Home- coming and welcomed our alums back with an Aloha, Alums, Ha - Wa - Yuh " theme, and managed to place third with our house decor- ations. For an altruistic project for Hera Day we had a party for " our girls " from the Welfare home. The rest of our time was spent planning parties for our dads, mothers, alums (and even the alums children). And we studied occasion- ally. Taking part in activities on campus we had Maria Hochman and Kathryn Morrison qualify for both Pi Mu Theta and Phi Kappa Phi. Kathryn Morrison and Curley Stone were chosen for Who ' s Who. Curley Stone was elected president of W. A. A. and Joyce Hitch- cock was chosen as secretary. Barbara Ed- wards served as secretary of the Art Club, and last but n ot least in our long line of pride and joys was Barb Ficker who was cheerleader this year. In the royalty department, we were very proud of Marty Althouse who was the W. S. S. F. carnival queen.

The season opened with a " rush " , producing 35 pledges. The Pledge Dance at the Hotel Orlando opened the social season in grand style. A number of house dances combined with the Carnation Ball, Sailor ' s Ball, and the Sweet- heart dance completed a full social calendar. The Delta Sig chapter was well represented in athletics. Nineteen brothers and pledges were out for the team. Brother Tony Innis, and Pledge Pete Innis were two of the Minikin repre- sentatives on the all-conference team. Phil McFadden and Gary Florian were co-captains this past year. Captain Scott Steagall played all-American type basketball and led the team to another conference championship and a trip to Kansas City. He was ably assisted by brothers Althoff, Luttrell and Kowa.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon Pledges Once again Sigma Alpha Epsilon has had a year of great activity and success on the campus of Millikm University, Starting in the fall with rushing activities that netted them a well-rounded pledge class, the chapter carried on from there in all campus activities. On the gridiron, there were six brothers led by quarterback Don Hess. Don and Hal Wies- enmeyer both made the all conference team. In the field of politics, S. A. E. was again one of the leaders. An active new party was formed and it captured every office it ran for. There were three brothers in student offices when the smoke of battle rolled away. The Homecoming weekend was a great one for S. A. E. too. Capturing the house decora- tions for the third year, the chapter gamed permanent possession of the Homecoming trophy. From there the chapter carried on in grand style, Business Manager of the Decaturian, Editor of the Millidek, Vice-President of the Student Council were all held by S. A. E. ' s. Socially the men from " 185 " were playing the usual roll of throwing good dances, the Winter Formal, the Novelty dance, and a fair share of house dances. To top things off, a new television set was acquired in the spring, and regardless of the diversion, the chapter managed to maintain the highest fraternity average in grades for the ninth semester out of the ten since the war.

Rich Hellman, with the assistance of his committee turned out a beautiful dance, complete with TEKE bracelets as favors. T. K. E. was awarded second place for their house decorations the last Homecoming. The whole project was of enormous proportions and consisted of the theme of St. Peter welcom- ing the alumnae through the pearly gates of J. M. U.

The TEKES also had two men as officers in Alpha Phi Omega, the service fraternity; Dan Newcombe serving as President and lack Bloss as Sergeant-at-arms. Fraters Jay Hoepffner and Robert King were honored by being selected as representatives of Millikin University in the national Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities publi- cation. T. K. E. is very proud of that tall, " lanky " guy who has been so active on the varsity basketball sguad — Alex Sarran. " Little " Bill Sutherland was another important T. K. E. in varsity sports as Captain of the baseball team. Another TEKE who should receive laurels is Bob King. Bob was very active in the speech department and appeared in various radio and stage productions — we especially remember him in the leading roles of " Camille " and " Two Blind Mice " . T. K. E. owes much gratitude to Jack Allen who proved to be a very capable and efficient chapter advisor. Much the same can be said for Roy Ousley, the alumnae for 1950- ' 51.

The first big project was the sponsoring of the Ugly Man contest which raised funds to secure a scoreboard for the football field. The members are backing and working on the idea of the Campus Chest Survey, have drawn up plans and have gotten a bid for improving the lounge in the Sub, took charge of decorating the float for the Homecoming Queen and her Court, and had a Boy Scout Day on which they took the Boy Scouts to a football game. This year makes the first for a banguet commemorating founders day. Dr. Malone was invited to be the speaker. Alpha Phi Omega is a world-wide organiza- tion and membership is non-restrictive. Mem- bers of the other Greek organizations are welcome, as is everyone who has at one time been a Boy Scout.

S. A. I., an honorary musical fraternity for women, takes for its members only those who are superior in musicianship and character. Outstanding in this year ' s activities for Sigma Alpha Iota were the traditional Rose Tea, the Contemporary Musicale, the Senior recitals, and the other programs which the S. A. I. ' s presented throughout the year. S. A. I. ' s and their dates were provided with plenty of fun and festivity at their two dances, " Winter Prelude, " and the traditional Rose Dance in the spring. Recitals, songfests, State Day, and finally, a last farewell to the Seniors at the Senior Banquet, — all these things go to make up a wonderful and successful year for Sigma Alpha Iota. PHI MU ALPHA This year has found a small but lively chapter of Phi Mu Alpha at Millikin. The chap- ter has worked hard on various projects and is making this one of the best years in Beta Theta ' s history. Homecoming was the first big project, and was closely followed by our election of Bill Thomas as the winner of the Ugly Man contest. Other major events of the first semester were the presentation of, " The Telephone " , and " The Medium " , operas by the music school, our annual Christmas carol trip, the winter pledge dance, and several appearances by the " Sin- fonians " , the chapter chorus. The second semester found us with new officers, and new activities. This year, for the first time, we joined with the S.A.I, chapter in presenting a trophy to the best group par- ticipating in the Millikin Sing. Other activities this spring were the spring formal, province convention, and the annual All-American show. This year also found the chapter alumni news- letter, Beta Theta Ensemble, reorganized and sent out to all chapter alumni.

FOOTBALL BASKETBALL BASEBALL TRACK WOMEN ' S The night that Millikin beat Eastern Illinois State Teachers College in the N.A.I.B. Illinois play-offs was the starting point of a long-to-be-remembered ten days. The Big Blue made its initial trip to Kansas City, and the nation-wide N.A.I.B. play-offs. The team left on Sunday morning, and every day for the following week groups of students forgot the necessity of studies and went to support the team. The first ball game was on Monday night against Eastern New Mexico. The Big Blue promptly handed them a 77 to G3 defeat. In the following week the team went on to defeat East Texas Baptist, 80 to 62. Florida State. 91 to 60. and Regis College. 88 to 70. However, the final game of the tournament found us playing Hamline University from Minnesota. The game was not decided until the last few minutes, the boys scrapping all the way. but the sound team from St. Paul came out on top with a 69 to 61 victory. The week was a victory for us though. Each day the ranks of Big Blue backers swelled in Kansas City, and the class attendance at Millikin dropped. School finally closed on Friday, and all students and faculty members who could beg, borrow or steal a ride to the tournament went. A great time was had by all. There were parties, sight-seeing trips, parties, and a heck of a lot of cheering for the Millikin team. To top off a thrilling championship basketball season the trip to Kansas City was the height of all our ambitions. We certainly left an impression and record that will be hard to equal any place, and Scott Steagall came through as a true champion, again, by running off with the honor of being the most valuable player in the Kansas City N.A.I.B. tournament for 1951.

THE " M " CLUB The " M " club, composed of men who have earned letters while participating in athletics at Millikin, is one of the quiet but active organizations on the campus. Sponsoring the }oe Catlin memorial scholarship, run- ning the used book store for the benefit of all students, and giving our athletes an organization to work through are its main objectives. Headed by Jim Lester the first semester, and John Luttrell the second semester, the " M " club completed another successful year. " M " MAN Once again the Millidek announces its " M " man award. Quiet, unassuming Scott Steagell is the unanimous choice of the staff. Breaking records, making new ones, continually advancing sports through gen- tlemanly conduct, Scott has not only been a credit to the school and the athletic de- partment, but he has also built up a repu- tation off the floor of a basketball court that will be hard to equal. An active member of his fraternity, a president of the " M ' club, and a good stu- dent, Scott is always ready with a good word and a ready smile. It is his char- acter, personality, and his accomplish- ments off the floor, combined with his athletic ability, that make Scott the " M " man of the year. « 101 » Back Row: Van Doren, Poulos, Bennewitz, Mc- Fadden, Short, Vitale, Tom Innis, Maclntyre, Allison, Hoppert, Kossieck, Tony Innis, P.

Although the four and four record doesn ' t sound im- pressive to the ear, the memory of how the team came out and fought, scrapped, and played every minute of every game will long remain a pleasing memory to all who were spectators through the year. Field general Don Hess, fol- lowed by such stalwarts as " Red " Halliburton. Tony Innis, Gary Florian, Hal Wiesenmeyer. Chuck Boman. and Gene Panizzi, gave Millikin an exciting if not spotless season. FOOTBALL Knock-down, rugged, hard football was the style at Millikin University this fall. The " old college try, " for which there is no substitute, was ever present, and as a result we had some mighty good football to watch. Outstanding as a single game was the night game played at Wesleyan. That night the " Big Blue " lost a 20 to 18 thriller. There was no guestion about the rough, bruising game being a good one from the opening whistle to the closing gun. Skill, ability, and knowledge were ever present, but it is commonly agreed that a little luck slipped in on the side of Wesleyan and enabled them to steal the game. FOOTBALL Losing four and winning four games this year is on the record book, but Coach Keil was proud to have five men represent Millikin on the all- conference team this year. They were: Hal Wiesenmeyer, Tony Innis. Pete Innis. Don Hess, and Al Kowalski.

He put together a team that copped the Little Nine basketball championship for the second year in a row. Fast, high-scoring ball was played this year, and it paid off. Setting a new conference scoring record of 800 points, the team also set single game scoring of 104 points, free throws, 32, field goals, 36.

His records: most points in a season. 303, best average, 30.3, most points in a single game, 59, most free throws in one game, 21, most free throws in a season, 89, most points in four years, 887, and best four year game average, 22.2. All those records were made in conference play by Scott. However, it is the humble modesty of Scott that makes him a true champion on and off the floor. BASKETBALL Walking off with the conference champion- ship for the second Y ear in a row was quite a feat for Ralph Allan to perform as a coach, and a great victory for a team that went out and won because they knew they could. In the N.A.I.B. Illinois play-offs our first foe was Lake Forest. The team went on to defeat them 81 to GO after losing to them once during the season by two points. Our second game was with mighty Eastern. Playing scrappy ball through- out the game, Millikin University defeated the cocky, self-assured boys from Charleston 74 to 73. From there it was off to Kansas City and the National N.A.I.B. play-offs. Defeating Eastern New Mexico, E. Texas Baptist, Florida State, and Regis of Colorado in the first four games, the " Big Blue " lost the final game to the fine team of Hamline University, 69 to 61. At the end of the season we sported a 24 won, 7 lost record. BASKETBALL " B " SQUAD Under the guidance of able Jack Allen, the B squad went to work this year to develop men to replace members of the varsity squad who will be leaving next year. The squad is shown at the right. First Row: Fessel, Pritchard, Longbons, Nabb, Mueller, Tom Innis. Second Row: Coach Jack Allen, Schaeffer, Pogue, Dubinick, Rozycke, P. Innis, Morris, Manager Lukey. Mi 4 " ' TL ' BASEBALL Coach Keil started the baseball season minus his pitching ace of last year. Ken Schroeder, but has high hopes of finding able replacements in Hess, Lutes, Stauder, or Messenger. Messenger, the freshman ace, had arm trouble last year, and early signs in the spring indicated that he might be coming into his eld shape this year. How- ever, the team ' s leading batter. Captain Bill Sutherland, is back again this yea " , followed by veterans, Laedtke, Conville, Williams, Ko- walski, and Halliburton. A good looking new group led by Roy Schaub, Frank VanDom and Asa Morris help strengthen the team for a strong conference bid the second year in a row. TRACK Captain Jim Lester of the track te.rn led the thin-clads of Millikin to victory in the first five starts of the spring season. The running of Jim, John Luttrell. Bob Lefley and Ron Sherman, ac- companied by Durchholz, Anderson, Durland, Mcnahan, and Shepherd in the field events, proved more than most opponents could match. The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and on Saturday, May 7, when our cinder stars took the measure of mighty Wheaton, it was proof that our chances in the conference meet later in the month were better than average. Jack Allen may well be proud of his track team, and next year when he is coaching at Canton High School he will certainly carry with him the memory of an outstanding year of coaching at Millikin University. GOLF Golf has long been a stand-out spring sport at Millikin. This year, the team, captained by Jim Butts again, seems to be headed for the conference championship once more. Winning six out of the first seven matches and getting stronger all the time, the team is being paced by Jim Finley and Jim Butts. They are pictured, from left to right: Don Cameron. Bud Downey. Jim Butts, Don Lawson and Jim Finley. W. A. A. GIRL Norma Stone, senior from Decatur, was chosen W. A. A. girl for this year. Curly has served the W. A. A. faithfully ever since she has been in school. She has been active as a manager, and has played in all the sports that W. A. A. has offered. The basis for the choice of the W.

Close on the heels of Sigma Alpha Epsilon was Tau Kappa Epsilon. Next year a new trophy will go into circulation and all houses will once again be aiming for permanent possession of the award. FLOAT CONTEST The Zeta Tau Alpha sorority came through with flying colors and underwear to win the Homecoming float contest. With the Sig Alphs and Tri Delts running a close second and third, the parade was a resounding pre-game affair. The Zeta ' s washer woman was a good parallel to the drubbing the football team gave North Central later in the afternoon. TOWN AND GOWN The first semester Town and Gown, under the direc- tion of Dr. L. C. McNabb and Mr. Herbert Joys, pre- sented the three act play, " Two Blind Mice. " The com- edy, written by Samuel Spewack, is the story of an imaginary Department of Interior bureau, the Depart- ment of Medicinal Herbs. The department is oper- ated by two nice old ladies who continue to keep the wheels rolling smoothly after the department has been abolished by Con- gress. The comedy centers around the intricacies of bureaucratic red tape, and the romantic interest is pro- vided by the niece of one of the old ladies. The young lady has been divorced from her husband, and he is in the midst of attempt- ing to regain the favor of his former wife. The two old ladies were played by Danni Norris and Carla Drije, and Bob Kina and Lucille Brown starred as the separated husband and wife. The play comes to a satisfactory ending with the husband and wife reconciled, and the troubles of the two old ladies safely straightened out. 134 » TOWN GOWN " The Heiress, " based on the book, " Washington Square, " was presented by Town and Gown April 13 and 14. It was elaborately costumed in the style of that day, hoop skirts and all. The unusual scenery consisted of an elaborate living room with four exits, visible staircase, and stained glass windows. The story is of Catherine, shy, over-dominated, who met and fell in love with a fortune hunter. Catherine ' s father took her to Europe in hopes that she would recognize the man as a fortune hunter and forget about him. However, on her return, Catherine decided to run away with her lover. Her father promptly disin- herited her, and her hus- band-to-be left her waiting for him to come and take her away. In the next two years Catherine ' s father died, leaving her the entire for- tune. The lover returned begging for her favor, but Catherine left him knock- ing at the door and went upstairs. This action ended one of the most elaborate and pro- fessional productions to be seen here at Millikin Uni- versity. Once again it was the work of Dr. McNabb and Herb Joys that made it possible. The excellent cast had Nan Harlan, Bill Miller, Bob Lodge, Caroljean Zwetschke and four other students in supporting roles.

Sometimes it ' s possible to break all the rules — and get away with it. But for most of us, most of the time, the rules hold — especially when it comes to saving money. The first rule for a successful life is to SAVE; the second rule is to SAVE REGULARLY. Since lack of money is so often a cause of worry and unhappiness, one way to eliminate many of our problems is to have money when it is needed. Regular saving is a good way to have money for emergencies. THE NATIONAL BANK OF DECATUR Decatur ' s Oldest National Bank Member F. D. I. C. « 156 G. S.
