Worc s o Vrs Jom The fall term began " In the shadow oi the tower Of our dear old Millikin, We will hail our Alma Mater We love through thick and thin. We hold high the lamp of learning. Our loyalty declare; For we love the sacred honor Of Millikin so fair. For we love the blue and white And her colors proudly wear. We revere the old traditions Of Millikin so fair — Of Millikin, of Millikin, Of Millikin so fair.

We ' ve all had many good times together, but even with all the extracurricular activities we ' ve taken part in, we ' ve never forgotten why we came to Millikin — for an education. We can all be thankful for the well-rounded education Millikin offers to us, not only in books and classes, but in the opportunity to live and work and play with our fellow students. The weekly trips to Westminster Church for Chapel brought the Millikin Family together, and the day of tree planting was a big success. We all enjoyed getting together on our campus every chance we had, for taking part in campus affairs makes living " in the shadow of the tower " a most memorable experience.

From washing dishes at freshman camp to the passing out of diplomas in June, we all gained great dividends from our relationships with not only our fellow students, but the faculty as well. Studying in the library and taking part in the many skits and plays brought us closer together. The influences of association and doing were many and varied, but all were very worthwhile.

Sporting events play a big part at Millikin, and this year we were all mighty proud of the many athletes who represented us in intercollegiate play. Our teams made a good showing for us and many thanks go to them along with our fine coaching staff. We hate to say good-bye to Coach Jack Allen, but we know he ' ll always be behind the Big Blue just as we are. We ' ll always back out teams, for after all what is more thrilling than watching the Big Blue in action and cheering them on to victory? We pached the stanch to cheer the Big Blue VVho chased the girls away? Students congregate in lower hall No two persons are alike, but on our campus a variety of personalities live happily together and form a unified and genial Millikin Family. The faculty, with their good sense of humor, as shown by those taking part in the faculty auction, are always willing to help us, both academically and socially, and their assistance will never be forgotten. The many hours spent working with fellow students and chatting in lower hall, the dorms, and the SUB will be fond memories, too. One of Millikin ' s greatest attributes is the sense of belonging that it gives to each and every student. We ' re glad that we have the opportunity to meet and know all those who come beneath " the Shadow of the Tower.

None will forget the many good times had in the variety of activities that highlighted this past year at Millikin, activities that contributed greatly in giving us a well-rounded education " in the Shadow of the Tower. " 15 During a whirl of camping, rush parties, tests, and registration, Millikin students began their first weeks on campus. Many new freshmen wandered here and there with lost looks on their faces, while the upper classmen were busy greeting each other and catching up on the news of the summer. As weeks passed, the student body was united, not as freshmen and upper classmen, but as friends and classmates, and again assumed the name of the " Millikin Family, " ready to join together in worship, study, and fun.

Her activities are many and varied, including the following: pres- ident of Pi Beta Phi and Panhellenic Council, member of student council, and secretary of the senior class. She is also listed in Who ' s Who. Evie was crowned queen at the football game by last year ' s queen, Verne Borse. She then reigned over the festivities for the re- mainder of the weekend. JULIA RAFFINGTON Delta Delta Delta Each sorority and Independent Association are allowed to choose one candidate for homecoming queen. A committee, consisting of alumni, faculty, and students, select one of the candidates as queen on the basis of beauty, personality, and social graces. The others constitute the queen ' s court. This year ' s court included Jeanie Gallatin, junior from Vandalia, Alpha Chi Omega; Julia Raffington, junior from Decatur, Delta Delta Delta; Diane Kirk, senior from Decatur, Millikin Independent Associa- tion; and Sally Durbin, senior from Downers Grove, Zeta Tau Alpha.

It is to those people that we wish to give a vote of thanks, espe- cially to Dr. Mickel and Mr. Burgstahler who wrote the words and music. Students purchased tickets in lower hall for the home- coming dance. A fine crowd of alums and students enjoyed dancing to the music of Fred Dale ' s band — the climax of a wonderful weekend. « 23 » i Wanda Epps, Mrs. C. A. Lightbourn The Frizzly Hen acm €Utd ( mt Sconce Merry Cole, Les Larsen, George Blanchard. The Bine Tango Town and Gown, the dramatic organ- ization at MiUikin, presented a series of experimental one-act plays collectively called " On Cobweb Twine " by Ann Bar- low. " The Frizzly Hen, " " Mr. Biggs " and " Blue Tango " were three adaptations of life in New Orleans, and all guite varied in interest. Students in the Play Produc- tion class designed and executed the un- usual sets for this production. Town and Gown this year presented Oscar Wilde ' s " The Importance of Being Earnest " in the fall, and Emlyn William ' s " The Corn is Green " in the spring. Both were directed by Dr. Jere Mickel. Unique sets and complementary costumes in the style of Aubrey Beardsley helped make " Earnest " quite a hit, and learning Welsh was quite a task for several of the cast in " The Corn is Green.

Each Greek or- ganization and the Independents sponsored a winter and spring formal in addition to numerous house dances. The Student Council sponsored several all-school dances this year. Included in these were the All-School Mixer, Homecoming Dance, Beaux-Arts Ball, Sweetheart Dance, and Spring Fever Dance. Vice President Sally Durbin and her social committee should be congratulated for a job well done. Sleepy time gals — and guys Costume house dances were favorites « 26 » Organized exchanges invaded Millikin ' s Greek organizations this winter. Each so- rority and fraternity had four dinner ex- changes each semester. Besides delicious food, hilarity and entertainment were plenti- ful and many new friends were made. Traditional presentation of MESSIAH was enjoyed by a large audience The Yule Season came to Millikin ' s campus, bringing with it festive spirit and merry-making as well as its religious meaning. Our season was opened by the tradi- tional presentation of the Messiah under the direction of Messrs. Snyder and Burg- stahler. Christmas exchanges were fre- quent, and Christmas trees were deco- rated at the houses and dorms. Many organizations held winter formals and dances; others joined the Christmas spirit by giving parties for children from the welfare home. The climax was the Christ- mas Tea given by the Millikin Dames. After each student had his fill of cookies and tea, his thoughts turned toward home where he would soon celebrate Christmas with his family. « 28 » Christmas trees reflected the Christmas spirit ormals were festive occasions The Christinas Tea is always a huge success and this year was no ex- ception. Students and fac- ulty alike enjoyed the -cookies and tea served by ' ■ " ' " the Millikin Dames. The " Cookie Tea " is an annual affair « 29 » Vienna Academy Chorus Ruggiero Ricci Millikin was proud to present its Fine Arts Series for the fourth season. Student committees, faculty members, and alumni select and manage the series. Mrs. Gage is the director, and it is to her that we owe our thanks for the wonderful presentations. All of the programs were presented in Albert Taylor Hall, but many townspeople, as well as Mil- likin students, enjoyed the presentations. Each pro- gram was followed by a reception given by the social groups at their respective houses. Froelich Rainey ZTA and DSP sponsored the reception for the Vienna Academy Chorus. This provided an excellent opportunity to meet students from a European conservatory. The students all enjoyed themselves regardless of the language barrier. The reception for Ruggiero Ricci, one of the best violinists in America, was sponsored by AXO and AKL. Mr. Ricci is the husband of a Millikin alum, so many old times were discussed. PBP and SAE sponsored the reception for Mata and Hari who were master-class artists in pantomime. Their supporting dancers of college age added variety and interest. Froelich Rainey was sponsored by MIA. Stu- dents decided that digging up facts as an archeol- ogist was much more interesting than digging them out of books. DDD and TKE sponsored the reception for Richard Dyer-Bennett, the ballad singer. Mr. Ben- nett was not the " dirty jeans " type of singer we usually stereotype, but kept his audience en- tranced with his songs. Richard Dyer-Bennett Mata and Hari 31 » Actors or stagehanc 32 s. Temper Tantrum! La Traviata was based on the story of Camille by Dumas and adapted to the music by Verdi.

Hanson, M. Vogt, J. Bleaker, S. Vogt, J. J-olley, D. Strobel, J. Koger, Coach Ralph Allan. The 1956 season found the cinder team short of returning lettermen, however, a rebuilding program was started and the outlook was good. Captain Dick Quisenberry headed the team again this year. Dick goes down as one of the greatest sprinters in Mil- likin history. 1 Coach Ralph Allan and Captain Dick Quisenberry combined their talents, abili- ties, and leadership to lead the team through another successful season. Good balance in all departments is neces- sary for a track squad to be successful. Millikin has this power in the discus, shot- put, and javelin from Stobel, JoUey, Slater and Reid. The men running dashes are V arford, Craig and Quisenberry, while the long distance men are Koger and Reid. The slat jumpers, better known as the hurdlers, are Glass, Vogt, Strobel; Lambert, Dechert, and Kane take care of the pole vault and jumps. « 104 » ;TTt- ir HT 3S?3SIiai2aW«» Ed Leach, Rod Jansen, Larry Armstrong, Bill Hawkins, Don Lidbury Al Myers, captain, Pat Panici, Rich Helm, Harmon Mitchell Golf at Millikin is again quite good with lettermen Eddie Leach, Alan Myers, and Bill Hawkins returning to the squad.

In the Shadow of the Tower ♦ ♦ The core of our university is our great Millihin Family, great not in number, hut rather in loyalty, friendship, integrity, and spirit. The associations between students and faculty alike will long be remembered, and the friendships made here will be our most cherished memories of our college days " in the Shadow of the Tower. " « 111 » Dr. I. Walter Malone, whose outstanding service to Millikin will never be forgotten. A truly great man, beloved by all those who come beneath " the Shadow of the Tower. " Dr. Mcdone took over his duties as President of Millikin University on January 1, 1946. He came to us after being Vice President of McCormick Theological Seminary and pastor of McKinley Memorial Church in Champaign. During the decade that he served as president, Dr. Malone worked toward the building of the Scovill Science Hall, the organi- zation of the Millikin chapter of Phi Kappa Phi, and the introduction of Master ' s Degrees in both music and educa- tion. Also, through his efforts Millikin received gifts totaling $2,500,000. He resigned his duties as president on April 1, 1956. We ' re glad that he continues as our neighbor and friend. « 112 » DEAN C. L. MILLER This past year, C. L. Miller has not only served as Dean of the University, but as Acting President since Dr. Malone ' s re- tirement. Dean Miller is an out- standing leader and educator, and many of the advancements of Millikin University can be attributed to his efforts. We are fortunate in having him as a friend and a teacher. DEAN FRANCES E. FALVEY With each new year at Milli- kin, Dean Falvey becomes dearer to us as a friend, ad- viser, and teacher. Her con- stant interest in the students and her unending efforts toward better campus living make her one of the most ad- mired persons at Millikin. As Director of Student Affairs, she is the coordinator of all student activities. BYRON L. KERNS Registrar In addition to his duties as registrar, Mr. Kerns has served as Assistant Dean since Dr. Malone ' s retirement. His close contact with the students and facuhy through teaching and administrative activities make him a familiar figure on our campus. His assistance and ad- vice are highly regarded. Mr. Kerns is also director of our night school. R. WAYNE GILL Business Manager " " Hank " Gill regulates the financial side of Millikin and is also a member of the Board of Managers. He ' s alv ays will- ing to lend a helping hand and comes into contact with many students through committee work. Mr. Gill not only repre- sents us well on our campus, but in such civic positions as President of the Park Board. « 114 » WALTER B. GRAY Director of Admissions and Public Relations Mr. Gray, as Director of Admis- sions and Public Relations, is in charge of admitting new students to the university. During the year he and his staff visit many high schools to encourage students to come to Millikin. We are proud to have him represent us in the field. E. W. PLOENGES Dean of Veterans Dean Ploenges is a familiar friend to all of the Vets here at Millikin. He counsels the veterans and co- ordinates the veterans ' affairs, such as the distribution of paychecks. In addition, Dean Ploenges teaches mathematics and arranges men ' s housing.
