11 e 1954 MiiiicU you tkioccati t e yean .n ' M vniOiifimsm eve dedicate Each of you — whether you be freshman, sophomore, junior or senior — is an important part of our campus. Many of you may be ac- tive in its organizational life. Others may be primarily interested in its sports. Whatever is your interest and activity, you are vital to the life and welfare of our school. You are a part of the traditional " Millikin family. " Because of your contribution to this great, family, we dedi- cate this book to you. Stranger in " Paradise? Aston was soon buzzing Summer had come to an end. September appeared on the calendar. Preparation and enthusiasm preceded the anticipation of the beginning of school. You arrived on campus — some of you for the first time. New friends were made and old ones were renewed. Fresh- men left for camp. Members of sororities and fraternities were busy preparing for rush. The football team began practicing. Members of the faculty and staff prepared for registration and the beginning of classes. Yes, activity on the campus had begun and each of you was a part of this activity. « 10 H Mil the torpedoes ' , full speed aheaal Freshmen enjoyed the lake at Camp Seymour llume Ec. 101 On a cold night the fire felt good " There ' s an essential difference between the male and female — The facts of Millikin were explained Got the concept A break during a busy day at camp , and t e frio A c wtfeed wit 7 e lin4t mo4tt umz Organized confusion Many long hours were spent registering Soybean capi tal of the world Froshies got together for a picnic « 12 » mm one You went through the hideous proce- dure of registration.

But those good intentions soon faded as the formal season started. You participated in the usual hustle and bustle of last minute decorating and date getting. You saw the Big Blue open its basketball season with a victory. Your hopes for another trip to Kansas City began to blossom.

Sorority pledges were busy planning their Junior Panhellenic walkout. Every type of test imaginable was given including T. B. Your professors took great pleasure in assigning unexpected term papers. As the first snow hit Millikin your thoughts turned to Christmas. The " Messiah " introduced the Christmas spirit. This spirit was furthered by the parties and caroling of the organizations on campus. She ' s qot a comer on the goodies racket Millikin Dames poured at an- nual Christmas tea More cookies, more cookiesl Hundreds of students turned out to eat thousands of cookies Oh happy day! The homeward trek began with waiting for taxis The Christmas activities on campus were brought to a climax by the Millikin Dames Tea. Exhausted but happy you left for home. After two weeks of more holiday fes- tivities and recuperation, you resumed the familiar pattern of campus life. The new year brought more formals, fine arts, and M. U. basketball spirit. Before you were aware of it the cold fact presented itself — finals were here. Midnight oil, no- doze, and cramming did no good. You wearily anticipated the results. « 30 » The Buckeye Four Third in the Fine Arts Series, the Budapest String Quartet Not too posed!

After it you needed a rest and counted the days to spring vacation .... You came back to the campus wearing new togs and ready for the final bout of the year. Spring was defi- nitely in the air. The " fever " dance and more formals brought zest to the season. " Sign " of spring Millikin took on a fresh look « 45 » ' Tftay came The last month of school was probably the busiest of all. You watched the track and base- ball teams in action. Picnics, sun bathing and tennis games took the place of studying. Seniors were particularly busy with job inter- views and graduation plans. The prom, the senior dinner and the pansy breakfast were some of the pre-graduation events. Into each activity many of you carried anxiety because finals were approaching. The exams came . . . and you took them. Some of you then cele- brated, bade farewell to your friends and departed. Those of you who were the privil- eged seniors remained for baccalaureate, the lantern parade, and the biggest event of all- Commencement. And so the year 1953-1954 came to an end, leaving with you friendsh ips, book learning, a bit of wisdom, and memories. As you left the campus, an alumnus possessing a coveted sheepskin or a student soon to return, you were proud of being a part of Millikin.

The yells of Captain Sharon McFadden and newcomers Doris Burke, Jayne Hagberg, Amy Sickman and Carolyn Stevens paid off in both football and basketball games. The girls sported new uniforms purchased during the season, and showed unlimited energy and spirit which helped the Millikin fans cheer our teams on to victory. Sharon McFadden M. Club Row 1: D.

Its leading activity was the used-book exchange which was a help to the students who used it and also provided funds for the club ' s other activities. This club, also, had a picnic for the boy ' s home, incresaed the Joe Catlin Scholarship Fund, bought new uniforms for the cheerleaders, and ushered at. all Big Blue sporting events. K A Jayne Hagberg M " MAN The 1954 Millidek Staff has chosen Bud Mueller, a senior, as Millidek " M " Man. Active in his fraternity and other campus organiza- tions, Buddy lettered in baseball two years and basket- ball four years. During his senior year he served as captain of the basketball team, held the Steagall-Sarran Scholarship, and was elected to " Who ' s Who. " This honor is awarded on the basis of scholarship, extra-curricular activities, and athletic ability. FOOTBALL Jack Allen, successor to Bob Appleby, did a splendid job in his first year as head football coach. Though the team ended with a record of 3 wins and 5 losses including, a two win and three loss in the C. C. L, three of the losses were by less than one touchdown. The season opened with the Blue traveling to Muncie, Indiana, to meet the Cardinals of Ball State. After coming back from a seven point deficit, Millikin scored twice and was leading 13-12 with less than two minutes to play. But with the Cardinals taking advantage of many opportunities, the hard playing Milli- kin team was downed, 19-13. Row 1: J. Codemo, R. Kramer, B. Briggs, B. Yount, B. Harlan, L. Slater, W.

The Blue fought from behind to avenge their last year ' s defeat at the hands of the Lutherans, and emerged decisive 27-19 victors. The thrill of victory afire in them, Millikin opened its home season against Elmhurst on the Decatur High School field under the lights. The Blue romped to a 33-6 win. 2500 spectators saw an impenetrable defense again and again turn back vain Bluejay thrusts. . . -dm lack Ludke Dick Kramer Juraj Bjankini « 55 » FOOTBALL Augustana was the next foe to be encount- ered. The Auggies ' Homecoming crowd went wild as their team fought back from a 7-7 half- time deadlock to a 32-15 victory. Amid the fervor of Homecoming week, the Blue worked to sharpen their attack for the Titans of Wesleyan. Their work was worth- while, for they downed their foe 18-6. Millikin ' s team was impressive with its hard charging line and smooth running backfield. Next the Blue played host to Upper Iowa. In their second night game of the season, Milli- kin fought hard to prove their strength to Iowa. Iowa scored in the first period and that was all Gordy Short Bill Savage « 56 » Harry Kelley mmrnm Bob O ' Brien Chuck McAnally Ted Smith FOOTBALL the scoring until the Blue tied up the game late in the last period. With only a minute to play, Upper Iowa scored on a sensational freak pass play to win, 13-7. Disheartened by the Upper Iowa defeat, the Blue traveled to Naperville to meet North Cen- tral on the following Saturday. Both Millikin and the North Central offenses were clicking, but the opponents were able to win by a mere extra point decision. The final game of the season found Wheaton up against the Blue. Millikin ' s first Dad ' s Day crowd saw the Crusaders rout the Blue, 33-6. Their attack just couldn ' t be stopped as they gained the College Conference of Illinois championship. Wally Knutson Frank Chizevsky Although all the players played hard for M. U., a couple received special mention. They were Frank Chizevsky and Jerry Babel, who were elected to the all-conference team. Chi- zevsky and Bill Savage were elected co-captains to lead the Blue next year. Millikin ' s basketball team gave the fans a lot to cheer about this year, and it looks as if what the men have done is only a preview of even better things to come. The Blue ended the season with a fine record of 17-6. Highlights of the season included the victory over Wesleyan, 66-61, who later became conference champions. Freshman Roger Lotchin turned in an excellent per- formance under the boards besides lead- ing the scorers with 20 points. Millikin nearly turned the tide again at Blooming- ton but was downed by the Titans 68-66. A much acclaimed victory was given the Big Blue after defeating Eastern, the IIAC champions, 82-67. Freshmen Don Morris and Roger Lotchin paced Millikin with 22 and 21 points respectively. X « 59 » Don McCann Chuck Conrady BASKETBALL Another important victory was over Wheaton, the past conference champions. Avenging an earlier loss to the Crusaders, the Big Blue poured on a 103-80 score. This victory gave Millikin a second place tie with the Wheaton team in the confer- ence. Jack Dettro and Captain Bud Mueller led the scoring with 29 and 28 points respectively. The conference record of 9 wins and 3 losses gave the Millikin team a place in the N.A.I.B. playoffs at Champaign. The Blue met Eastern in the first round and BASKETBALL " B " TEAM Row 1: Mgr. B.

BASKETBALL showed great spirit in winning by a de- cisive score of 95-68. Western and Millikin met in the final game with the dark horse Western coming out on top 65-58. This ended the season for the Big Blue cagers who worked hard and developed very well under the guidance of Coach Ralph Allan, who was named " Coach of the Year. " Roger Lotchin Jack Dettro « 62 BASEBALL Millikin ' s baseball team started the spring season with uncertain weather and a few costly injuries but with the competent leadership of Coach Jack Allen the team was able to give many fine performances. A highlight of the baseball season was its annual southern trip which was helpful to the team in smoothing out the rough spots, and also the players were given a pleasureable experience. Being an inexperienced team, the play rested upon lettermen Capt. Mel Sheets, out- fielder; pitchers Bud Mueller, Clete Hinton, and Dennis Harrell; outfielder Ron Bowman, and third baseman Don Garnett.

The team had a tougher schedule than the pre- vious year, but Caoch Allan had well-founded hopes for a good season. Captain Don Pogue, the ' 53 hurdle champ, had no trouble holding his title in ' 54. Right along with Don were Dick Wright, Bob Glass, and Paul Jones. The versatile Paul Jones also competed in the high and low hurdles, pole vault, high jump, and broad jump. Dick Mc- Bride led the field in the distance runs and was followed by Chris Tsevelekos. In the 220, 440, and 880 yard runs, Dick Quisenberry, Bob Lefley, and Jim Ballowe were outstanding. Be- sides Paul Jones, Gene Degner did very well in the pole vault. In the sprints, Doug Warford, Row 1: L. Slater, F. Chizevsky, D. Warford, B. Savage, S. J. Lambert, J. Ballowe. Row 2: B. See, P.

Harold Frost and Pete Innis turned in fine performances in the javelin department. In the weight di- vision Frank Chizevsky, Greg Barnes, and Dick Kramer were outstanding. Bob Glass Don Pogue Dick Wright Paul Jones The Thin Clad ended another season with many memorable performances and so repre- sented Millikin University in the best of form. « 69 » Frank Chizevsky « 70 » Wes Fulton Bill Hawkins GOLF This year ' s golf team looked good due to the four returning lettermen, Jim Finley, Bob Corrington, Bill Hawkins, and Al Meyers.

The Council acts as a governing body of all inter-sorority affairs, and Dean Frances Falvey acts as faculty adviser. Some of the mam functions of the Council are to promote better relations on the campus, especially among the groups involved; to de- cide on the rush rules for the year; to take care of any problems that may arise; and to guide inter-sorority activities. During the course of the year the Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils met together to make arrangements for dinner exchanges among the organizations. The Junior Panhellenic Council was organ- ized to promote friendly relationships among pledges of the sororities, to aquaint them with the social customs of the campus, and to pro- vide training for future positions of responsi- bility.

The Millikin Interfratermty Council is an organ- ization composed of representatives of the Greek fraternities on the campus. Its purpose is to ' serve as a clearing house for matters common to all the fraternities and as a coordinator of their activties. The council held a paper drive this year as its money making project, and on the social side, its activities varied from the promoting of the all- fraternity formal dance to the dinner exchange pro- grams. Both of these functions were a great success. During the year Don Sesslar and Jack Dettro served as Presidents, Clyde Forth and Bill Higgins as Secretaries, Bob Briggs and Dick Kramer as Treasurers, and Bob Edwards and Bob Briggs as Social Chairmen. INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL « 79 » " Together let us seek the heights " has long been the tradition of Alpha Chi Omega. As the years roll on we believe that the pride we have found in working together will ever be remembered by our members. Some of the activities we shared that we will remember are the all-school street dance; our winter formal, " Firelight Fantasy, " featur- ing Tony Prince; working as a unit to become a human typewriter in the Variety Show; blend- ing our voices for a dream theme for the University Sing; and climaxing the year with the spring formal, which was called " Southern Row 1: R.

With but one semester ' s background, the full cooperation of every member was needed to produce a successful year. Carrying out a full social program which included both winter and spring formals, a number of smaller dances, participation in Homecoming activities, the Variety Show, and the University Sing, leading the way in men ' s scholarship, and entering slightly into intra- mural sports, the Sig Phis earned a place in Millikin ' s campus life. But the members of SPA didn ' t limit them- selves to fraternity activities alone. Sig Phis could be found taking part in almost every campus activity. Floyd Stradley was President of the Junior Class, Richard Massaro of UYF, and Clyde Forth of the German Club. Gene Baker was Secretary of UYF and Dick Gilmour of the German Club. Jim Stevenson served as Treasurer of APO and Lowell Brown as Treas- urer of the Spanish Club. Rich Massaro was co-chairman of U.C.M. week. Sigma Phi Alpha owes much to the advice and cooperation of many individuals and or- ganizations at Millikin. Particular thanks are due Mr. Jack Gaston, whose value as advisor during the initial year of SPA could never be overstated. 92 » Row 1: G. Baker C. Forth, L. Brown, G. Gray, E. Power, C. Bower.

Memories of these events still hold a place in the hearts of all of us. Beta Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon was fortunate in having two capable presidents at the helm of our fraternity during the school year.

After a flurry of freshman enter- tainment, the Millikin Independents set sail for their sixth year on the Millikin campus. During the year our members were active in a great many campus organizations, acting as leaders as well as members. The Secretary of M.R.A., the Secretary-Treasurer of Phi Kappa Delta, and the Secretary of Tau Chi Pi came from our group. Homecoming was soon upon us, and we found ourselves faced with the job of making a float. After many headaches and long hard work, we were ready. Finally the big day arrived and we were proud and happy when, between halves at the big game, we were awarded third place in the competition. Next came our winter formal, " Moonlight Serenade. " Christmas time came at last, and we all left for a well-earned vacation. By the time we returned, basketball was well underway, and the Indee fellows headed for the intramural varsity basketball champion- ship. When the Variety Show came along we brought a touch of Hawaii to the campus and then made ready for the Millikin Sing. After spring vacation, we returned and brought the year to a close with our spring formal, " Nep- tune ' s Fantasies, " and our annual Senior Picnic at Fairview Park. « 96 Kellams, R. Galloway, S.

During the first week of school Rita Hess had a " retreat " at her home for all officers. At that time we made plans for a big year in SAL In January our Province President made her visit and in March eleven of us attended State Day at Bradley University. Fraternity Edu- cation has been stressed with particular chapter discussion on the International Music Fund, Foundation Fund, American Music Awards, and Pan ' s Cottage. Chapter Monthly Musicales have given each member an oppor- tunity to perform at least once during the year. We ' ve had a winter and spring formal, chapter dances, the annual Rose Tea, a Senior Fare- well Dinner, a potluck and Christmas party with alums, and a " Kiddie Party " and " Gypsy Party " for rushing. Our members have provided music for school programs and have had an active part in other school functions. We presented " Tunes in Technicolor " for the Variety Show, we co-sponsored and took part in the Millikin Sing, and gave a Contemporary Musicale, and a Pledge Recital.

College men assemble in the fellow- ship of the Scout Oath and Law to develop friendship and promote service to humanity. A true measure of the success of Alpha Phi Omega is the service rendered to its campus. This year its success on the campus of Millikin University was due to the following projects: the building and decorating of a float for the Homecoming Queen and her Court, directing traffic during Homecoming, Ugly Man Contest and Dance, annual Blood Drive, purchase of chairs for the left- handed students, " Share-the-Ride " program, Boy Scout Day, and other projects.

STUDENT COUNCIL The school year 1953-1954 found the Student Council busily engaged maintaining activities of long standing as well as adding new activi- ties for the benefit of the student Body. Barbara Gregory turned in a fine job in guiding the student body through another suc- cessful social season. Starting with the Fresh- man and All School Mixers and going on through the Sweetheart and Spring Fever Dances great numbers of students voiced their approval of the social events, terming them some of the best dances that the Student Coun- cil has sponsored in recent years. The Variety Show, with the cooperation of the participating organizations, was a smashing success. These events evidenced a growing interest on the part of students in an all-campus social program. Somewhat along the social line also, was the birth of a new fall event, Dad ' s Day, which this year was carried out under the capable leadership of Bob Edwards. Probably the big- gest tangible accomplishment of the Council, however, would be the addition of a TV set to the Milliden, for the use of the student body. When students weren ' t dancing, or watching TV on their off hours, many could be found taking part in the National Intercollegiate Bridge Tournament, sponsored jointly by the Decaturian and the Student Council, or the monthly bridge tourneys started in the second semester. Two big boosts were given to student gov- ernment organization during the year. The first was the acceptance of the new Student Council Constitution, which was a big help in organi- zation. The second was the referendum which raised the student fees in order to put the Milli- dek and Decaturian on stronger financial foot- ing. The biggest boost, however, was a renewed interest in student government evidenced by the unselfish service given to Council work by the members of the Council under the leader- ship of Ken Merwin, president, and by the many students who served on committees of the Council. W « 101 WHO S WHO Fifteen students were elected to " Who ' s Who in American Uni- versities and Colleges. " lames Viani received this honor for the second time. This outstanding honor at Millikin University is bestowed upon those students who have evidenced great strength of character, good social and moral responsibilities, scholastic achievement, and other qualities indicating strong citizenship and faithful leadership. Students are nominated to " Who ' s Who " by an anonymous committee com- posed of students and faculty, and are then judged by a smaller committee on all the qualities indicated as essential. The list of nom- inees is then submitted to " Who ' s Who " for national approval, after which time the students are notified of their election. The students ' names are placed in the Annual Publication of " Who ' s Who in American Universities and Colleges. " The organi- zation also furnishes a widely known placement bureau for all members.

Phi Kappa Phi is a national honor fraternity open to seniors who have achieved a scholastic average which places them in the upper eighth of their graduating class. To be eligible for membership, a student must have both high scholarship and good character. Every year an Annual Honors Day Assembly and a special dinner are held at which time the new initiates are honored. Pi Mu Theta, honorary fraternity for senior women, was founded at Millikin University on November 13, 1912. Some of its aims have been to provide cooperation between campus groups, to promote college loyalty, to maintain a high standard of scholarship, and to recognize and encourage leadership. Pi Mu Theta is comparable to the national honorary fraternity, Mortar Board. Qualifications for active membership are ser- vice, scholarship (at least a 3.0 average), and leadership.

MILLIKIN RELIGIOUS ASSOCIATION " It is the purpose of the Millikin Religious Association to foster the Religious Life on campus both through advocating a Religious View of the world and man ' s place in it and by- intensifying the particular Faith of the individual student through participation in projects, study groups, and fellow- ship. " In furtherance of this purpose, the association sponsored many projects during the year including discussions such as the " Rumor Clinic, " religious programs for radio broadcasts and civic groups, Freshman Camp, toy workshops at Christmas, and lunch get-togethers for independent students during U.C.M. week. MRA also initiated this year a monthly news letter and a series of weekend camps held once a month in Chicago. Both projects have been highly successful. ALPHA EPSILON RHO Alpha Kappa chapter of Alpha Epsilon Rho was installed on the Millikin campus June 24, 1953, by G. Robert Holsinger, director of WOSU at Columbus, Ohio, under the presidency of James Williams.

Future Teachers of America is organized and designed to be an aid and a guide to students who plan to become teachers. It has tried to have more discussions and pro- grams pertaining directly to the teaching profession. A major project of the year was the sponsorship of an Art Workshop for both the practice teachers and some Decatur and surround- ing area teachers. The Home Economics Club, open to those interested in home economics, as well as those majoring in the field, offers opportunities for social and professional development. In- cluded in the club activities this year were the Christmas Party for the girls from the Welfare Home and the cookie sale. The Millikin club was represented at the state meeting of the American and Illinois Home Economics Associati ons, at the Province Workshop, and at the Regional Workshop. Row 1: L. Smeltzly, D. Dunn.

CHORUS « 110 » UNIVERSITY CHORUS This is the largest choral group on campus and each year it performs major choral works for fall and spring semesters. This large choral group performs Handel ' s MESSIAH each year in con- junction with A Cappella Choir. The Chorus also provides music for Chapel services and gives a concert during the spring semester. A CAPPELLA CHOIR This is a group of 36 specially selected voices. Emphasis is placed on quality of performance and repertoire. Choral works of merit from the past five centuries make up the literature performed by this group. This year ' s work included concert trips to cities in Central Illinois, two major concerts in Albert Taylor Hall, Chapel services, Christmas presentation of Handel ' s MESSIAH, and the choral parts of Daphnis and Chloe for the Spring Dance Review.

Burgstahler, does much to bring out the school spirit at football and basketball games. It also plays a part in other aspects of campus life through a number of ensembles including the Homecoming Show band, the Dance Band, the Dixieland Band, and the Brass Sextette. Performance highlights for the year were the concerts given at Millikin, Illiopolis, and Blue Mound, and the outdoor concert during Commencement Week. Aside from these performances the band also took part in the Home- coming and ' Community Chest parades, made radio tapes, and worked with television broadcasting. The band members deserve a big vote of thanks from the student body for producing good entertainment throughtout the year. DECATURIAN Editor JOHN BARTH Society Editor ANN WELSHANS r ▼ Business Manager JIM FINLEY Editor John Barth and his staff, along with the financial wizardry of Business Manager Jim Finley, carried on the tradition of top news for the student body throughout the year. The co- operative efforts of the complete staff produced a fine Homecoming issue and an April Fool edition that was enjoyed by all Millikin stu- dents. The sports department, first under the lead- ership of Dick Quisenberry and then Jack Dagon, provided many fine feature stories on MU athletes, and carried up-to-the-minute coverage of all sports. Society, with Ann Welshans in charge, set a new high in coverage for that department of the newspaper. As usual, student teaching in the second semester posed a big problem to an under- manned staff, but the paper continued to come out on schedule. Many problems arose during the year which threatened the existence of Millikin ' s weekly, but all were successfully met and disposed of. Without the capable leadership of the always- patient Buryl F. Engleman, Dec adviser, and Wayne Gill, business adviser, the Decaturian could not have had the successful year which it has enjoyed.

Walter Malone This is the face that you have prob- ably enjoyed seeing more than any other on campus. The smile on it has undoubtedly made many of your days brighter. Dr. Malone is friendly, sym- pathetic and understanding. He is interested not only in the entire Uni- versity but in each student. His enthus- iasm, energy and pride in Millikin are contagious. You will remember him always as a grand President — your President. 7 %e ide tt 1 4Jim- I C. L. MILLER FRANCES E. FALVEY Each of you will remember Dean Miller as a competent and hard working leader of Milli- kin University. His far-sighted efforts to keep the standards of the school high and campus life harmonious have been successful. You will remember Dean Miller not only as a fine ad- ministrator but also as an advisor and friend. Dean Falvey may have served you as a teacher, as an adviser or as the director of student affairs. In each area of her activity she has demonstrated patience, fairness and human interest. You will remember her as a wise counselor and as a personal friend. i I OTHER ADMINISTRATORS R. WAYNE GILL Business Manager Without these men your attendance at Millikin would not have been possible. They have taken charge of the duties necessary to keep a university in tiptop shape. Paying the faculty, planning chapel every Wednes- day, rounding up next year ' s freshmen, pre- paring the exam schedule and keeping the vets happy are just a few of their " minor " tasks. These administrators are here to serve and they have served well. EMERSON I. ABENDROTH Dean of Chapel and Religion WALTER B. GRAY Director of Admissions and Public Relations BYRON L.
