MILLIDEK MILLIKIN UNIVERSITY 1 FOREW The warm enthusiasm of thy Millikin spirit has brought her great acclaim in the past year To compose a y arbook of organ- izations and athletics and t6 omit this noble Spirit would be to subtract from these the power which mak s them worthy of recording. Without this spirit Millikin wo ld be just another school, an institutior set up as a machine for the stuffing of facts and figures into human heads. With it it becomes the great university to which we proudly sing, " Kiel our Alma Mater. " Such spirit as this konly felt and can seldom be described except by the finest of poets -Tb_ p ct in. pictures this spirit is equally " difficult except that througff icUires each of us can relive in our mind those h gh moments in outcollege life which lfolded us in. this spirit. Where it begins is hardAto stay, but for many it began this year with registration and f Ashman camp. It grew rapidly at Homecoming. It was strengthened as all of Millikin displayed its big heart in the Campus Ch st Drive. It was nourished by all school projects: the Variety ShovV and the Cavalcade of Talent. Then there was that great outburst of spirit as we backed the Big Blue to the N.A.I.B. toutnarneWand watched them play great ball and show the true fighting spirit. We do not have to look to the big things at Millikin to find this spirit, for each of the activi- ties of the school compose one part of this great spirit: the spirit which sets Millikin apart as a highly respected university. Spirited Sophomores Impose Punishment on Fresh Greemes Wear Your Beanies DR. MALONE Realizing that Dr. Malone must incessantly feel the pressure of the many problems of our University, we are ever amazed and gratified at the ready smile and pleas- ant, jovial manner that are his. We are exceedingly proud that our University President is not only our academic guide, but most of all, our friend. « 22 » DEAN MILLER The man who so ably and diplomat- ically handles the immediate and often tormenting inquiries of students and townspeople is our ever competent and reliable Dean Miller. His intelligence, understanding, and keen perception of arising difficulties, combined with his un- usual ability to solve problems, and ye+ keep everyone relatively happy, make the Dean an indispensable leader ana advisor on our campus. Our apprecia- tion for all he has done for us and our University, with no thought for himself, can never be expressed by mere words — only by our own future actions. President and Deans in conference DEAN FALVEY An effervescing personality, and an un- canny understanding of each individual student on our campus are the virtuous qualities which constitute the efficiency and dynamic energy unceasingly dis- played by Dean Falvey. Her never-end- ing task of overseeing and maintaining happiness and security in the lives of the women students of Millikin is for only the most capable hands. Dean Falvey ' s ambitious ideas are greatly needed as she undertakes and completes an enor- mous job. At the same time she easily manages to gain the respect and ad- miration of everyone with whom she comes in contact. C. L. Miller Frances E. Falvey « 23 » R. WAYNE GILL Business Manager BYRON L.

Theirs is the task of keeping the functions of the Uni- versity on an even keel. They perform their duties well and keep order in the hurried life on the College campus. WALTER B.

Now it ' s our turn. We smile when we think of how scared we were in the beginning; our first rush parties; new friends; getting used to lectures; coffee at the Sub; short ones at the corner; formals; foot- ball games, and basketball, too; homecoming; cha- pel and assembly; myriads of exams, and finally, graduation! Yes, we have had some bad times and some good times. The bad ones we ' ll certainly forget—- the good ones will mean Millikin to us — Millikin and the class of ' 521 Class Officers President John Winick Vice-President Patricia Rebbe Secretary Jane Fearheiley Treasurer John McDonald « 32 » auams, chahi.kni: Muhk: Education Kcmplon, Illinoin AHLSTRAND.

Early in the year, Irvin Wangelin commenced his period of management by appointing a social com- mittee with representatives from every campus or- ganization. This committee has proven to be the motivating force in the junior class program, and through its efforts, Millikin has become widely aware of its energetic, enthusiastic group of juniors. Aside from the traditional Junior Prom, which this year was backed financially by the Student Council, the class was responsible for numerous and varied activities. Highlighting the year ' s activities were the annual class assembly and a spring social event.

Thus they were unfortunately compelled to wear their beanies until Thanksgiving. v BcISS TtlC6rS However, this was soon forgotten as they em- barked upon their social program for the year. p reS ident John Davidson This was launched by a dance on February 2.

The Secretary Sally Henry social activities of the year were concluded with Treasurer Barbara Bowman a dance on May 9.

At the risk of being termed " all wet " wo bravely fling out the claim that we covered Decatur like the dew. Our news beagles operated at full-throttle throughout the two terms, having their respective noses in more people ' s business than a tax assessor. Our fall masterpiece, should we blush?, no, I think not — we ' re really worth this praise —was the Homecoming edition. In the spring we went west with the Big Blue, scooping A. P., U.P., I.N.S., Domei, and Tass news agencies, and followed this up with a bril- liant expose of dope traffic and political corruption on April Fool ' s Day. We were aided and abetted by Buryl Engleman, journalism instructor. Editors Gene Rigsbey Emma Lou FitzPatrick Barbara Munson Business Manager . . .

OFFICERS President Barbara Banner Vice-President Maurine Lovins Secretary Shirley Witt Treasurer Marilyn Gray PANHELLENIC COUNCIL The Millikin Panhellenic Council is com- posed of the presidents and rush captains of the four national women ' s fraternities on cam- pus with Dean Falvey as advisor. Its functions are to guide the activities of the four women ' s fraternities, to make and enforce rushing rules, to plan the fall rushing schedule, and to super- vise rushing periods. Fall rush was closed by the annual Pan- hellenic dinner for all sorority members and their new pledges. The Panhellenic Dance, " Snowflake Serenade, " was held November 20 at the Hotel Orlando. The February meeting of the Panhellenic Council was held jointly with the Inter-Frater- nity Council and a schedule of exchange din- ners between the fraternities and sororities was planned for the rest of the semester. At the April meeting, the Council entertained the Pan- hellenic Council of Wesleycn University with a luncheon and a discussion of the similar problems in rush rules and social activities with which both groups are confronted. The Council hopes to continue these joint meetings, which are helpful to both groups involved. The Panhellenic Council sponsored the Uni- versity Sing, which was presented May 5.

INTER-FRATERNITY COUNCIL The Inter-Fraternity Council continued to be most active again this year as a co- ordinator with the school as well as among the fraternities. A pamphlet for future rush- ing was constructed by a representative committee. It is hoped that this will be the means for effacing many of the rushing dif- ficulties in the future. The National I.F.C. Convention was held in Old Point Comfort, Virginia, this year, and a sectional I.F.C. meet was held in St. Louis. Again this year, the Council sold pen- nants at the Homecoming game, and gave the annual I.F.C. Ball on March 8, the theme being " Fraternizing. " Council projects, such as the construction of the trophy case, are financed with resultant funds. Other activities that the Council took leadership in were closely associated with school spirit and efficiency. The basketball banguet was co-sponsored by the Council and the Quarterback Club. The blood drive sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega service fra- ternity was given able assistance by the Council. From a joint meeting of the I.F.C. and the Panhellenic Council came a schedule for dinner exchanges to further organizational relations. This plan proved successful, as were all of the other undertakings of the Council.

We opened the new se- mester with an initiation dance, and fol- lowed it by taking second place in the Homecoming float competition by making " Suckers out of Wesleyan. " Our annual Christmas party was held at the chapter house and we spent many hours burning the midnight oil while knitting argyle socks for our winter dance, a " Snowball Sere- nade. " " We Give Our Hearts to You " was the theme of our Valentine initiation dance which honored our new initiates. And the End ... a guick change of pace led us into " Infernal Folly " at the Variety Show. Our altruistic project for Hera Day on the first of March was our party for our Welfare Home girls. We managed to fill in the rest of our " spare time " with more parties, dances, and occasional interludes of study which v on us the Scholarship Cup for the second year in a row.

Shirley Witt was treasurer of Pi Mu Theta, and she and Charlene were also our representatives in " Who ' s Who. " Mary Grace Baird was pres- ident of the Home Economics Club, and Roselyn Turner, vice-president. Marge Keeler and Roselyn Turner were treasurer and sec- retary, respectively, of the Women ' s Athletic Association, and Barbara Ficker and Janice Stone represented Alpha Chi on the cheer- leading squad.

Jensen, and having a very successful Homecoming. We won first place on the house, third place on the float, and our candidate, Eve- lyn Walden, was selected as Homecoming Queen. Some of the highlights of our social schedule last winter were the Pine Tea at the chapter house, and the winter formal, " Wintasia, " at the Hotel Orlando. Then as Spring appeared, it found the Tri-Delts at their formal in the Hotel Orlando, and also honoring the graduating senior women at the annual Pansy Breakfast. Among the many campus leaders were Caroljean Zwetschke, who was elected pres- ident of Pi Mu Theta and Future Teachers of America. Jody Collins and Ruth Rigsby took their places as cheerleaders.

The Millikin campus was again ready for a fast-moving year of ac- tivities. The Pi Phi house was bustling with excitement during Rush Week, and after a few festive days of parties, we added to Illinois Eta a pledge class of fourteen girls. The months of work and play that followed included house dances, Homecoming, the Campus Chest Drive and Carnival with Jackie Davis as chairman and over which Mary Ellen Ripley reigned as queen, and our Christmas formal, " Fantasy in Frost, " which completed the fall semester. Panhellenic Council had for its president this year Barbara Banner who was also chosen for Who ' s Who and Phi Kappa Phi. The Decaturian was co-edited by Barbara Munson during the second semester as Marc Erickson and Joanne Lytle issued the social news and Mary Lou Evans handled the musical side of the news. The Big Blue was cheered along its way by Cheerleaders Patsy Weiland and Sue Sullen; student gov- ernment included Barbara Bowman as vice- president of the freshman class, Joanne Lytle as vice-president of the junior class, and Jean Keller who was senior representative to the student council. Dramatically speaking, we had Sue Etherington, Jeannine Netzel, and Nancy Todd who took part in the fall and spring Town and Gown productions. Phi Mu Theta elected Jean Baker, Mary Taylor, Barbara Banner and Barbara Walmsley to its group. Our linguist Jean Baker presided as president of the French Club and secre- tary of the German Club.

Our formal dance in May had us in a merry- go-round mood with " Carousel " as the theme. Senior Farewell arrived all too soon, and once again we closed our doors for the summer months as we added to our book of memories one of the best that Millikin and Pi Phi together gave us during a most successful school year.

Social activities got off to a start by enter- taining fraternity men with several coffee hours. An early Homecoming proved to be a great success. Zeta received first place trophy for her float and third place for her house decorations. The fall pledge dance, " Soda Hop, " really had atmosphere. Our Christmas formal, " ' Twas the Night Before Christmas, " was held at the Orlando Hotel and sent everyone home for Christmas in a gay mood. Two more house dances were given in the spring. One in honor of the actives was called " Save Our Actives. " The other was called " Prelude to Spring. " Our formal dance held in May ended the social events for the year.

Notable distinctions and honors have, in the past year, been given to brothers who have shown outstanding ability. Chapter president, John Luttrell and past president, Richard Helledy, were elected to " Who ' s Who. " John Luttrell received the Joe Catlin memorial scholarship, Robert Kowa was elected to the N.A.I.B. Ail-American basket- ball team, and awards were presented to brothers for achievement in art and account- ing. Scholastically the past semester found the chapter, both actives and pledges, with the highest grade average of all the frater- nities. Contributions to athletics by the chapter reached a peak with the basketball team almost predominantly " Delta Sig.

This year was no exception to the rule as the brothers once more proved their worth in all phases of school life. The chapter provided capable leaders for the school publications this year, brothers holding the enviable positions of editor and business manager of the yearbook as well as sports editor and business manager of the weekly paper. In the field of politics the brothers fared well by bringing home the coveted offices of president and treasurer of the junior class in addition to the treasurers of both the sophomore class and the student council. Four brothers were given national recog- nition for their outstanding leadership in scholastic endeavor and general activity in school affairs. Bill Strickler and Lynn Turner were chosen to join the coveted folds of Phi Kappa Phi with Ed Chant elected to Who ' s Who. Brother Jerry Lewis had the distinc- tion of being chosen to both of these select groups. In athletics SAE leadership can be seen at a glance. President Art Murray served as co-captain for this year ' s championship basketball team and three other Sig Alphs captained the golf, tennis, and baseball teams. Nor was football left free from the guidance of the brothers as Roy Schaub was named co-captain elect for the oncoming season. SIGMA ALPHA EPSILON ACTIVES Row I: W. Strickler, Kuny, A. Murray, C.

TAU KAPPA EPSILON In all phases of campus activity, which has included everything from formals and house dances to picnics and bull sessions, the men of Tau Kappa Epsilon have worked together to make this year one of the best that the fraternity has ever experienced. The biggest event of the year for the Tekes was the spring formal, which, after many hours of hard work on the part of the whole chapter, brought Vaughn Monroe to the campus. Although formulated in sum- mer school, the plan was not realized until ten months later. Bob Schaub, who was one of the first to think that having a big name band for our formal was not a pipe dream, along with the committee which worked with him, deserves a great deal of credit for its success. Also memorable, although less spectacu- lar, was the winter formal with the theme of " Snowman ' s Serenade, " which was held at South Side Country Club, and the " Har- vest Hop. " Although Tau Kappa Epsilon had a good year socially, other things also entered in to make the fraternity life a full one. Major offices on both campus publications were held by Tekes as Gene Rigsby became edi- tor of the Decaturian and Dan Newcomb took over the position of business manager for the Millidek. John Winick became Senior Class president, while John Davidson was elected to steer the Freshman class. Tekes TAU KAPPA EPSILON ACTIVES Row 1: W. Dixon, J. Whittingham, R. Mowry, J. Muren, R.

Ml LLI KIN INDEPENDENT ASSOCIATION The Millikin Independents began the fall semester with a picnic and a coffee hour for all old members and the new members-to-be. Soon after, things really began to happen; the organization was the largest it had ever been and to keep up with the size, bigger and better plans were made. National Independents ' week was cele- brated in October with special activities and a dance. New pins were adopted, using both the national crest and our own shield as a background. When homecoming rolled around, the Indees were found all hours of the night and day working on a huge green monster. There was even time left to dec- orate the barracks and set up floodlights. This was the first year for the outdoor deco- rations. In keeping with the social season, the winter formal " Christmas Dreams " was held at the St. Nicholas Hotel, and the spring dance was held after Easter vacation. A large number of members attended each of them. Not all the time was spent in socializing, for Indees were found in just about every activity. Emma Lou FitzPatrick was co-editor of the Decaturian, Jim Viani was president of the sophomore class, Herb Zuegel was president of the junior class and was elected to " Who ' s Who " , Anice Duncan was award- ed the Pi Mu Theta scholarship the second semester, Helen Stocker was president of Tau Chi Pi, Robert Marsden and Bob Belmar were very active in Town and Gown, and Wayne Shiffer was president of the Student « 90 » Row I: Elizabeth Toney, Bill Smith, Bob Roberts, Tom Minton, Barbara Burgis, Ruth Kollman, Jane Cooper, Jan Brecken- ridge, Betty Reed, Fran Anderson, Shirley Spear, Al Bron- stein.

A well- rounded year of musical activities is always the aim of Sigma Alpha Iota, and this year has proved to be a very exceptional one! The first semester was inaugurated with a party for freshman girls which was fol- lowed by the initiation of our spring pledges. We joined the Phi Mu ' s in a mixer for new students in the fall, and actively participated in the Campus Chest Drive. Another big project was the massive white grand piano constructed by the S.A.I. ' s and Phi Mu ' s (complete with oversized animated concert pianist and recorded music) as Conservatory decoration during Homecoming festivities. The second semester was even more outstanding, for then we joined the Phi Mu Alpha chapter in presenting Johann Strauss ' comic opera " Die Fledermaus " in Albert Taylor Hall, and then putting it on the road. Our traditional Rose Tea, followed by State Day, and our Contemporary Musicale, and finally a last farewell to the seniors at the annual Senior Banguet. All contributed to a very wonderful and successful year for the Nu Chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota. Rita Hess, Mary Lou Sauer, Mary Lou Logan, Barbara Munson, Norma Williams. Row 4: Nancv Zi.

PHI MU ALPHA Crowning an active and successful year [or Beta Theta chapter was, of course, the S.A.I. -P.M. A. cooperative production of Strauss ' " Die Fledermaus " , but this was only one of the many projects which our chapter undertook. We started the year with rushing activi- ties. Then came Homecoming and the inev- itable decorations, parade, and Alumni re- ception. This was followed by the beginning of rehearsals and committee work on " Die Fledermaus " , the Variety Show, and the Annual Pledge Dance held at the Hotel Orlando on the Twelfth Night of Christmas, January 5. The second semester brought to us new officers and new rushing and pledging ac- tivities. We then began chorus rehearsals and planned many musical appearances and programs. Once more we co-sponsored competition in the annual All Millikin Sing, and we also sang engagements in many lo- cal places, including an exchange sing with the Decatur chapter of S.P.A.S.B.Q.A. which was a thrilling night for all of us. The annual Spring Formal, Senior Picnic, and Com- mencement climaxed another interesting year. We are indeed proud of the many men in our chapter who this year have given many solo appearances in various places and who thus have carried Beta Theta ' s standard of professional performance to many clubs, organizations and nearby com- munities.

It is a fra- ternity based on the members having been Boy Scouts in the past and who, wishing to carry on the program of service in college, banded together to form A. P.O. It is a unique organization in that it gives service to the student body and faculty; service to youth and community; service to the nation and service to the members. It started the first teacher rating scale on the Millikin campus. It has helped give an electric scoreboard on the athletic field and hopes to complete this project soon. It has an annual Ugly Man contest which furnishes the organization with the neces- sary funds to carry out these charitable projects. Thus A. P.O. is an organization not bound- ed by the social limitations and is open to any one who was a former Scout and who wishes to further service to others.

STUDENT COUNCIL From the casual observer ' s point of view, the Student Council this year has outdone itself. The genuine interest and support of the students in the affairs of both the students and faculty has been overwhelming. Incorporated in the Council ' s program was the initiation of a stable and permanent income to allow for more adeguate social activities for the student body. A budget was permanently established, proportionate to the needs of the students, for the upkeep of the Milli-den, which was renovated under the direction of the Council. An allowance was made in the budget of the Council for class organizations to promote class and all- school functions. Various Faculty-Council programs were instituted to cement student-faculty relations into common purposes. The establishment of a building fund for the student union building was proposed. A code of ethics and technigues of administration were adopted for the school publications. The Council pro- posed the organization of an annual Little Nine student government convention to as- certain the needs and solve the problems of similar schools. This Student Council deserves a vote of thanks from the entire student body for the progress it has made and for the numerous advantages it has afforded the students of Millikin.

WHO ' S WHO It was the outstanding honor of Millikin University this year to have fourteen of its students elected to " Who ' s Who in American Universities and Colleges " . This high honor was bestowed on twelve seniors, and two juniors. The juniors achieving such recognition were John Luttrell, and Jerry Lewis, who have demonstrated qualities of excellence and leadership in both scholar- ship and extra-curricular activities in only two years of college life. All those students elected to " Who ' s Who " have evidenced great strength of character, good social and moral responsibilities, scholastic achievement, and other qualities indicating a strong citizenship, and faithful leadership. Students are nominated to " Who ' s Who " by an anonymous committee com- posed of students and faculty, and then are judged by a smaller committee on all the qualities indicated as essential. The list of nominees is then sent in to " Who ' s Who " for national approval, after which time the students are notified of their election.

The band gave an added zest to all the football games while the pep band did more than its share during the basket- ball season. Like the postman who stops for neither sleet nor hail the Millikin Band kept marching through slush and snow, through fair and foul weather. The Band marched at the Illinois College football game, and were entertained in the I.C. student building after the game. Eastern State was invited here and was feted in our student building. A concert tour of Blue Mound, Mattoon, Shelbyville, Pana, and Windsor found the band quite busy musically. Of course, none can forget the stirring renditions of the pep band while waiting for the basketball team to pull in from K.C. Altogether the year added another tradition for the Millikin band to live up to in the following years « 105 » ORCHESTRA The Millikin Concert Orchestra was founded under the capable leadership of Mr. Harold Clyde Hess, the spring term of 1947. It originally was a Town and Gown organization called the Millikin Civic Orchestra. The concerts were held at the Masonic Temple and in the years immediately following the found- ing the organization presented many very outstanding artists as soloists. Madame Maria Korenko, called the " Russian Nightingale " , William Primrose, considered to be one of the greatest viola players in the world, and Albert Spalding, America ' s first violinist, have appeared with the Millikin orchestra. The personnel numbered near one hundred for the first concerts, but in 1950 the orchestra was cut down to size for Albert Taylor Hall. The Millikin Orches- tra has two primary purposes, first, to promote the best in symphonic music in Decatur, and second, to give our own outstanding students opportunity to perform with a symphony orchestra. « 106 » Ml LLIKIN CHOIR The University choir has seen another busy year o{ outstanding perform- ances. The full schedule of the choir has included concerts at Mattoon, Spring- field, Decatur High, and the Lions Club. It also presented two inspiring concer ts in Albert Taylor Hall. At one of these, which was done in the Fall, the choir sang a Bach Motet, a work of Frescobaldi, and a number by John Balamos, a former Millikin student. The other program, presented in the Spring, was com- posed of a Bach Mass and two of the Bach cantatas. As can be readily seen from the foregoing examples of its repertoire, the choir sings only the highest type of choral music. In keeping with tradition, shortly before Christmas the choir and chorus combined forces for the annual presentation of Handel ' s " Messiah. " In the Spring the two groups, accompanied by a small orchestra, performed the Mozart " Mass in C Minor. " The choir sings at the weekly chapel services of the University. Both the a cappella choir and the university chorus are under the excellent and inspir- ing leadership of Mr. Howard Akers. RALPH ALLAN ROBERT APPLEBY COACHING STAFF The Millikin coaching staff, though not extensive, has proved itself capable this past year. Led by athletic director Ralph Allan, the basketball team repeated as conference champs as well as winning the N.A.I.B. State playoffs and a chance to go to Kansas City. In his springtime duties as coach of track, tennis, and golf, he will probably come up with further C.C.I, champions. Coach Bob Appleby in his first year at Millikin has done a fine job as head foot- ball coach and looks as if he may be able to lead the Blue to another conference crown in baseball. Dr. Leo Stme took on the added respon- sibility to his regular classes and turned in a fine job as assistant coach of football last fall. Don Hess also came through in good style to aid Coach Allan as assistant coach of the basketball team. LEO STINE, DON HESS « 110 » " M " CLUB The " M " club once again has had a quiet, but far from inactive year. The leading activities followed have been the used-book exchange and the Joe Catlin Memorial basketball game. The money from these sources flows into a scholarship fund for Millikin athletes to help Millikm build up its athletic program. The " M " club was headed by " feep " Althoff the first semester with Don Hess as vice-president. The second semester saw Hess take over the presi- dency with Ed Chant handling the vice-presidency. « First Row: Kelley, Luttrell, Chant, Sesslar, Van Doren.

At the head o| this year ' s team, however, was a new- comer to Millikin. Robert W. Appleby was appointed head football coach to replace Henry J. Keil who had resigned at the close of the 1951 school year. Mr. Appleby came to Millikin from Arkansas State Uni- versity where he was line coach and head baseball coach from 1949, when he com- pleted his graduate work, until the close of the 1951 school year. Along with Coach Appleby came some- thing new to the Little Nine Conference this year. The " split-T " formation, an up and coming variation of the regular " T " formation Millikin had used the previous three years, utilizes wide spacing between the linemen, and a quarterback who can pass or run with the ball himself as well as hand off to another backfield man. 113 For its opening game Millikin traveled to Cape Girardeau, Mo., where the new- ness of the " split T " proved too much for them, keeping them from capitalizing on any of quite a few scoring opportunities. The Indians were right at home and used their every opportunity to come up with a 26-0 score over the Blue. After a week of polish the Big Blue was in championship form when they traveled to Wheaton. The Blue stopped Wheaton ' s attack cold, and were never in trouble except for two long runs by Wheaton ' s All Conference halfback, George Dryden, which only added to the thrill of a hard- fought 13-12 victory for Millikin. The following week saw Millikin in their home opener against Augustana. Another hard fought game was in store and the Blue showed their desire to win by coming out on the right end of the 12-7 score. Backed by a large crowd of loyal fans, the team was off to Jacksonville for the annual grid-battle with Illinois College. I.C. started off with a bang and swept seventy yards for the game ' s first T.D., but couldn ' t hold their lead as Millikin turned on full force for a 27-6 victory and their third C.C.I, win in as many starts.

Homecoming found Millikin or; ol v oyr;, torn between clar;:;or; and prejoaratjori:; (or the Cavalcade of Talent, the dance, the floats, and the house decorations; the classes suffered as did the team. Some- thing was missing as the Blue went down 26-7 in a hard fight to the unbeaten Wes- leyan eleven, intent on keeping their record that way. The Blue headed north for their last conference game with North Central. The snow flew and by game time the field was under several inches of white. In the freezing blizzard which kept up through- out the entire game, the small, shifty Blue was left immobilized; while the slow, but heavy Cardinals went unhampered by the snow to a 26-12 victory. The snow lasted and the field remained blanketed for play so the game with Ball State was cancelled by mutual agree- ment. The last game of the season found the Blue and White playing host to Eastern. The team, depleted by serious injuries to key players, gave their all and for three quarters they were able to keep up with the high powered Eastern team. Lack of depth caught up, however, giving Eastern a chance to run wild for 33 points in the last quarter making the final score 46-6. CAPTAIN TONY INNIS BOB HAZENFIELD ED CHANT All Conference Honorable Mention HAL WIESENMEYER Although the wm-loss record for the year came up a not-too-impressive 3-4, the spirit shown was compensating. The undermanned team did a good job in taking third place in College Conference of Illinois standings. Individuals were also outstanding in that Ralph Rausch was named to the offensive All-Conference team with Lou Epperson, and Tom Innis being named to the All-Conference defen- sive team. Other standouts were Don Hess, Roy Schaub, Don Mclntyre, Jack Lippold, Gene Panizzi, and Ed Chant, who were elected to Honorable Mention on the All-Conference selections. Next year ' s team, captained by Roy Schaub and Lou Epperson, and equipped with 15 returning lettermen, have the way open for a great season. Their ability and experience combined with the Millikin spirit to win should give the Big Blue their most successful season since their entrance into the College Conference of Illinois. BUD KELLEY GENE PANIZZI All Conference Honorable Mention JACK LIPPOLD All Conference Honorable Mention DON SESSLAR FRANK CHIZEVSKY GORDY SHORT BILL SAVAGE BASKETBALL When the Big Blue ambled up to Normal to initiate the 1951-52 season, I guess they hadn ' t heard that they were supposed to have a mediocre record be- cause they started in by dropping Normal 61-59. Incidentally, for the prediction ex- pert ' s benefit, Normal was rated as having one of its best teams in a decade. The statement was made at the physical plant of J.M.U. prior to the first four games that if a majority of these games were won, Ihe Millikin Hardwooders should be cap- able of rolling over some toughies. They carne through with three out of four of these blue chip games dropping only one which was to be avenged later. After the Southern game at home, the round-ball guintet opened their confer- ence grind by giving Elmhurst a blitzkrieg treatment 81-43. First Row: Mueller, Dalton, Luttrell, Althoff, Gale, Kuhn, Aery, Manager Heiss. Second Row: Coach Allan, Murray, Rozycke, Lewis, Dubinick, Sheets, Kowa, Coach All this time the prophets were picking Lake Forest and Wheaton as likely con- tenders to battle it out for the conference title. The Big Blue machine calmly con- tinued with calculated precision to thread the nets by shadowing Kentucky Wes- leyan 77-62 at home, and then moving southward to bump off Southern State at Flora 73-61 and taking care of Austin College from Texas to the tune of 65-58. The curtain came down on the first act, and the stage was set for the telltale test. Before the Wesleyan game a certain amount of cramming was necessary, but the high spirited cagers of West Main passed the test with a margin of four points, 71-67. Three days later the highly praised Forester were forced to return to the woods without the goods, for the M.U. hoopers had applied the axe 76-64. CO-CAPTAIN ART MURRAY The middle of January saw I.C. get the Millikin cooling process tossed at them as the bucketeers turned the Blue Boys a darker shade of blue, 92-59. After the deep freeze at I.C, the ambrosial taste of victory was sweetened all the more as our rampant quintet stole the honey from the lair of the Washington U. Bears. How- ever, the Pipers of Hamlme mesmerized our stalwarts 88-66, and the Mac Men of Macales- ter also manipulated the leather sphere in a manner which muddled the Millikin men, 67-54. JOHN LUTTRELL All Conference CO-CAPTAIN BOB KOWA All Conference BUD MUELLER DICK LEWIS « 120 » Eastern hardly provided a welcome for the blue satellites upon their return home by jolting them 81-64. The first defeat in league play came from North Central, 68-58, but this loss was to be their only conference setback of the season. Millikin regained their form by waltzing the Washington U. Bears back to Brown town to the tune of 66-50. The next six games were played in Millikin ' s usual net-ripping style, and the Big Blue came out on top over Wesleyan 59-66, I.C. 95-59, Quincy 81-47, Augustana 60- 59, Carthage 68-60, and Wheaton 98-87.

Normal was given the forty minute persuasion treatment 81-64 and switched. The Eastern Cats, however, received special attention from the methodical Millikm men. They reluctantly accepted what had been coming to them all season, and went down 74-71 in a blaze of glory that was all Millikin ' s. ' ■fS ! i M ni The climax o{ the season was reached at Kansas City when 500 students fol- lowed the team west to see the national tourney. After running over Elon, North Carolina, in the first game by a score of 101 to 69, the team was edged out in their second game by Whitmore of Spokane, Washington. The final score was 72 to 71 after a great rally by Milli- kin in the last quarter. Millikin ' s John Luttrell won the E. S. Listen award for outstanding junior in the tournament.

Doren, Hess, Cook, Dechert, Schaub, Murray, Messenger, BASEBALL A good turnout of players greeted Coach Appleby for his first year at the helm of the Big Blue baseball team. A past double-A pitch- er and well experienced baseball man, Coach Appleby was well qualified to take over a team that has often been champions. Bad weather kept the team indoors for the most part of the pre-season workouts. They were, however, well enough rounded into shape so that their first start ended in a win over Washington at St. Louis. The southern trip over the Easter vacation proved its worth in preparation for the regular season, even though a not too impressive win-loss record was compiled against a schedule of star-stud- ded teams. A good pitching staff is a neces- sity for a winning performance, and Millikin is proving itself very capable. Led by senior co-captain Don Hess, a standout with his 4-0 record for this season, the staff has plenty of depth. Behind Hess is the able arm of Gene Stauder with a 2-0 record already com- piled for this season. Co-captain Dave Messenger looks as if his ailing arm is rounding into shape once again as he also has come through with a win in two starts this year. Ward Perrin and Loren Longbons have yet to find the right tricks, however, but should develop as the season progresses. FRANK VAN DOREN CO-CAPTAIN DON HESS GENE STAUDER LOREN LONGBONS CO-CAPTAIN DAVE MESSENGER WARD PERRIN « 125 » The receiving half of the battery is in the person of Frank Van Doren. Though only a sophomore, he has been filling the first string position last season and this in a superior fashion. Dick Lewis, back after a year ' s layoff, is going great guns once again as he did in basketball. With his lanky stretch and ability to pick them up out of the dirt he has been doing a great job as first base- man. Transfer student Dick Aery, with a good batting eye and a phobia for steal- ing bases, has been proving his worth on second. Clet Mullinax with a strong throwing arm has been able to aid the cause with his putouts from deep short. At the hot corner of the infield is Jac k Semler. With his steady performance in the field and at bat, he is fast showing his worth in his first year on the team. The outfield boasts the team ' s hitting power. Roy Schaub, team batting champ last season, looks a cinch to repeat for the title with the fast pace he is setting again this year at the plate. Al Kowalski, perma- nently in the outfield this year instead of at shortstop, has been using the bat to good advantage also as he keeps hitting over the three hundred mark. Bill Sutherland, past team captain and batting champion, is doing his usual good job at the plate as well as in the field with his strong throwing arm from deep center field.

CO-CAPTAINS DAVE MESSENGER and DON HESS 127 » TRACK The Millikin track team, coached by Ralph Allan, got off to a fast start in the 1952 season. Captained by John Luttrell, the Blue swept over Principia College in the season opener. The following meets saw the Big Blue not guite strong enough, however, as Eastern, Washington, and Wheaton turned back their hopes for team victory. Although the team as a whole has been forced to settle for second places, captain John Luttrell has been consistently setting the pace in his races. Already the school ' s record holder in the half-mile, mile and member of the one-mile relay team, John this season has settled for the longer distances of the mile and two-mile runs. With less events to concentrate on, John has been able to add the two-mile record to his total and better it with each start as he grows in experience.

Ron Sherman breaking the tape in the 220 and 440, Don Pogue going over the hurdles to win, and Dubinick, Thomson, Mueller, Mills, and Savage add- ing, the points with their seconds and thirds. In the field events it was Jack Shepherd in the broad jump and Lou Epperson in the pole vault who were picking up win- ning points for the team. Gus Wangelin twirling the disk at an improved pace over last year has been coming in the money along with Gene Panizzi putting the shot to near record- breaking performances. Ed Chant, the only senior on the team, has been stead- ily improving on his javelin throwing with each meet, and should continue ending up in the point scoring column. CAPTAIN JOHN LUTTRELL « 129 » BROAD JUMP JACK SHEPHERD POLE VAULT LOU EPPERSON Along with the holdovers from last year ' s team, a good group of freshmen are helping to round the team into form. Winning perform- ances in the dashes have been going to Jim Spaulding as well as a place on the relay team. Along with Spaulding on the relay team is Jim Ballowe, a newcomer in the 440 and 220 yard dash. Dick McBride is another freshman showing promise. With creditable performances in the HIGH JUMP CHARLES ARMSTRONG mile and two mi le he shows as a potential candidate to better, in his upperclassman days, the marks for these events now being set by Luttrell. Charles Armstrong rounds out the freshman group by being the team ' s leading high jumper while only a freshman. All in all the team shows great promise and should continue being a credit to Millikin ' s great athletic standing. DISTANCE RUNS McBRIDE, MUELLER.

Ed Kuny and Jim Mullen, ineligible last year be- cause of transfer, look as if they will be able to do their share in helping captain Jim Finley and Bud Downey in their quest to repeat as conference champs again this year as they have already won four of their first five starts. ED KUNY JIM MULLIN BUD DOWNEY ! The Millidek staff has picked Don Hess to receive this year ' s " M " man award. From his start at Millikin four years ago, Don has shown his abilities to the school. Quarterbacking the football team in the fall and pitching the baseball team to victory in the spring gave Don his varsity letters. Along with this he also found time to be assistant coach of basketball for the past season. Don also has shown his leadership by being president of the " M " club and an officer of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Don ' s unquestionable spirit and desire to win should go a long way towards making him a success in the coaching field he wishes to enter. « 134 » CHEERLEADERS The Millikin cheerleaders have been in good form for the past year. Leading the yells at the football games might not have paid off too highly, but basket- ball saw their inspiration come through. In all the games the cheerleaders helped the crowd back the team as they fought their way to victory. In the center.

Their job of keeping the locker room and equipment in top shape is a neces- sary one if the team is to be in its top shape. The managers have a thankless job, but are still a part of the team and so their letter awards for two seasons work should be respected and worn with pride.

Dealing with the antics of a zany family on a partic- ular weekend, the comedy gave the audi- ence a most enjoyable evening of laughs. When the four members of the Bliss family each invited a guest to spend the weekend without informing the others, the situation became complicated. The guests were ig- nored by their hosts and tried to entertain themselves. Mrs. Jane Ludlow and Mr. David Langlois as the mother and father of the family gave excellent performances as they contributed much to the turmoil of events. Sue Etherington and Jim Ballowe, Sorel and Simon Bliss, got involved in romantic diffi- culties of their own which were solved only when the guests terminated their visit. The five supporting actors added to the gay confusion of the weekend. tf TOWN AND GOWN « 146 » " IPHIGENIA IN TAURIS " For their second major production the Town and Gown players presented a chal- lenging Greek play, " Iphigenia m Tauns by Euripides (April 4 and 5). The scene of the play is laid in the land of the barbarian Taurians before the temple of Artemis. Barbaric pillars and a bloody altar lent great atmosphere to the setting. Events leading up to the play were these: Iphigenia was about to be sacrificed by her father Agamemnon, in order to appease the gods and be able to fight in the Trojan war. However, just before the knife fell, the god- dess Artemis substituted a deer for Iphigenia and carried the girl off to Tauris where she served as the priestess. It was her duty to sprinkle holy water on the foreheads of captive strangers who were then beheaded. The play begins with the arrival of Orestes, Iphigenia ' s brother, and Pylades, his friend in Tauris. They have come to get the image from the temple. The very beau- tiful recognition scene in which brother and sister recognize each other adds much to the effectiveness of the play. Iphigenia aids her brother in outwitting the savage King Thoas and in stealing the image from the temple. A most dramatic scene occurs near the end of the play when the goddess Athena appears to aid the Greeks in making their escape. Thunder, lightning, and the screams of the actors prelude her appearance. Both a speaking and dancing chorus were used to beautifully interpret the poetic lines. Mary Frances Prust, as Iphigenia, and Robert Belmar, as Orestes, gave excellent interpretations to the difficult lines. King Thoas, played by Ted Bell, and the goddess Athena, played by Patricia Monroe, added greatly to the dramatic impact. " DIE FLEDERMAUS " The zenith of the musical activities on cam- pus this year was the production of Johann Strauss ' ' ' Die Fledermaus " (The Bat). Sigma Alpha Iota and Phi Mu Alpha combined their talents to present two tremendously success- ful performances of this operetta. " Die Fledermaus " is the story of Dr. Fritz Falke ' s revenge against Gabriel von Eisen- stein. The latter preparing to serve a jail sentence for kicking a tax collector, is per- suaded by Dr. Falke to attend a ball. There he unknowingly makes love to his own wife. Meanwhile her lover, mistaken for Eisenstein is arrested and led to jail. The following morning all meet at the jail and everything ends happily. The production was under the direction of Mr. Robert Long, and the orchestra was conducted by Mr. Elton Burgstahler. The choreography was directed by Miss Annette Van Dyck. The chorus was coached by Mr. Russell Peebles. The operetta was also given in Paris and Springfield, Illinois.
