W. speakers . . . and most of all, you continued discovering more about your fell ow-students, learning new ideas, and developing life-long friendships. MEETING NEW AND I MGING EXPERIENCES... Perhaps one of the greatest things about college is the constant challenge, the production of new ideas, and the j chance to learn more about people . . . from TV to bushopping to a children ' s Christmas party. i 9 . . GROANING AT DEFEAT School spirit, that oft-prayed for support, grew like lopsy as Millikin s teams clashed with rivals. The Big Blue brought you laurels, and you showed your appreciation at the games. 11 I )ERFUL SOCIAL EVENTS ♦ ♦ ♦ Something for everyone: a walk through Fairvieiv on a warm evening, the TGIF meetings at the corner, or the rush to heat " hours at the end of a date. You could dance or see a Shakespeare play; you could listen to a Fine Arts concert or go to the Suh; you could sing on a serenade or simply have a library date and study. Social events were funl The Student Council " Sweetheart Dance " and the Millikin Dames ' Tea 13 ACTIVITIES Years from now, souvenirs from extra-curricular activities may become faded; the pictures may lose their gloss; the programs may fray; the bulletin boards may be lost. Tlemaining, however, will be rose-colored memories of your many activities at Millihin. And perhaps . . . someday . . . you will tell your grandchildren about college life in the fabulous fifties. 15 Perennial at Millikin: the long lines at registration and the beaming faces of girls headed for rush ... the questions; " Who ' s teaching Bugology? " " My major? 1 dunno. What ' s a major? " " What ' s the name of that cute blond fresh- man? " . . . Yes, life began as usual at Millikin. At Aston Hall, the freshman girls arrived with smiles, hopeful anticipations, and enough personal gear to fill two Aston Halls. Freshmen were introduced to the school at freshman camp, they met each other at the frosh mixer, and they became a part of Millikin life. 17 Homecoming Game What is Homecoming? First, excited plans, on air of eager anticipation, hoped for meetings. This is Homecoming; floats and parades and games and girls in pretty dresses; meetings of old friends; bois- terous laughter. 1m ■ ' -4 The Queen ' s Float 18 Frosh and Soph Games Homecoming is an unheard crunch of autumn leaves; it is singing crowds in smoke-filled trysts; it is the football team fighting for glory . . . and, in reality, the final score is unimportant to Victory. Some glow from some place . . . the Queen? . . . produces an answering smile; the warmth spreads; soon Homecoming is joy and happiness . . . moments to hold forever. Thanks to Carol Marshall and Fred Schmude for a wonderful week-end. The Homecoming Show Pi Phi ' s " took thee, 1st place " Homecoming, to the committees, is ten thousand heart-breaks of disappoint- ment happily tempered with year-long seconds of unforgettable bliss. It is a time of exhaustion, a time of frayed tempers, and a time when time is a short and fleeting enemy. Then, suddenly, the streets take on a new air of carnival festivity as floats pass by. There is a vast sigh of relief . . . and pride. ZTA ' s " ducked " into 3rd Delta Sig ' s " cooled " 1st place Pi Phi ' s opened their arms to 3rd Homecoming is an opportunity for creative artists to exhibit ingenuity; the houses bustle with mysterious activity; the judges pick the winners with slow deliberation. 2nd place was " in focus " for TKE ' s MARILOU WASEM § Alpha Chi Omega MARY LOU CHAPMAN Millikin Independent Association Homecoming is a queen with a radiant face and bubbles hidden inside; it is her day which will last forever; it is a day of beauty for the whole court. PAT TILLETT Zeta Tau Alpha I MARY JEAN MATHERS Pi Beta Phi 22 ' pine ;4tU, 7 Md ' Wif ii Ated Gina Bachauer Boris Goldovsky Millikin can well be proud of its Fine Arts Series. Each year the world ' s outstanding artists come to Millikin ' s own Albert Taylor Hall to give a part of their gifts and talents to Millikinites. This year four excellent programs were presented. Leonard Rose impressed his audi- ence not only with his mastery of the cello, but also with his down-to-earth personality. The Paris Ballet, featuring Lycette Darsonval, held its audience rapt with the fluid grace and poetry of its performance. The 1956-57 series was particularly privileged to have secured Gina Bachauer, one of the world ' s great women pianists. The final program of the series featured Boris Goldovsky, a unique musical personality, who lectured and played the piano in a series of " Piano Portraits " . Paris Ballet Leonard Rose Town and Gown, Millikin ' s theatrical group, had a busy season: " Measure For Measure, " " Anastasia, " " The Wayward Saint, " and several one-act plays. The big production was " Measure For Measure " which starred Clarence Derwent from Broad- way, giving MU ' s actors a fine opportunity to get professional advice. Measure for Measure Anastasia " Don ' t Griddle Hansel " headlined the Decaturian for the music school ' s colorful production of " Hansel and Gretel. " Local critics called it an excellent performance. A tragic note was struck, however, when Edith Conley — singing Gretel — slipped on the ice and severely broke her arm only a few days before the production. Oh, what one had to go through to make money Campus Chest, one combined drive for all chanties, exceeded the goal under the leadership of co-chairmen Marty Groppi and Bob Krebs and their committees. Lower hall became a carnival area as all organizaticns combined efforts to haul m the loot; faculty members were auctioned to the highest bid- der; " Swede " Eunson became Mr. Campus Chest; and a Campus Chest dance con- cluded the active week.

Alpha Kappa Lambda OFFICERS First Semester President Robert Krebs Vice-President Merwin Rusch Secretary Donald Thompson Treasurer Paul Terry The year has been a big one for the AKL ' s. Moving from the barracks into their new house was a big switch, but it didn ' t slow the fellas down. They let nothing stand in their way, and as a result, they won first place in scholarship. Bob Krebs, graduating senior, has led a bright example; he was chosen for Who ' s Who. For the Homecoming parade the men really worked hard to make their float place second. The large hand with a string around a finger suggested the theme, " And Don ' t Forget to Win. " The group, however, didn ' t let working effort stop there; ninety per cent of the men worked at part time or meal jobs. The AKL ' s participated in the intramurals, had house dances in their new house, and had their annual formals. A parents ' club was formed, and car washes were held on spring Saturdays. On March 24, the chapter ran a sixty- mile marathon to Charleston to deliver a charter to Rho chapter at Eastern Illinois State College.

The year began with rush parties, picnics, and a first-place- winning house decoration during Home- coming. The rest of the year was highlighted by exchanges, house dances, two formals, and the greatest Sailor ' s Ball in many a year. The Delta Sigs were well represented in every phase of campus life this year.

The year got underway with a multitude of welcome activities for the new frosh. Before long, however, plans were well along for Homecoming. Our float theme was " Drumming for Victory. " Many of our alums were back for the Alumni banquet, and we all had a big time getting reac- quainted. Before the winter season was over, we danced at the " Snowflake Ball, " our winter formal. During the second semester, we partici- pated in the Variety Show and University Sing. After the band concert, we held a social hour with the band personnel as our special guests. Then came N.I.S.A. week and our spring formal, at which our Indee Sweetheart was chosen. The year wound up with a picnic and tearful goodbyes to our graduating seniors. Indees prominent in school affairs were Sydney Wilson, president of W.A.A.; Larry Reif, vice-president of Young Republicans; Lee Erickson, vice-president of Young Demo- crats; Carol Clevenger, secretary of Young Democrats.

Pre-game tensions in the locker rooms were transformed to a fierce determination. If you were there you noticed an MU tradition — FIGHT] 85 Coach Don Shroyer and Coach Ralph Allan These are the strategists, the two men who guided the Millikm teams to another memorable year in athletics. Coach Ralph Allan has completed a de- cade as a Millikin mentor and in that time has made quite a name for himself. Last year Coach Allan was elected president of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletic Coaches. Don Shroyer has completed his first year as the Blue ' s head football coach. As a rookie coach, he almost won the conference championship. In their collegiate playing days, both men distinguished themselves as all-time Mil- likin greats. With this combination at the helm, Millikin looks to a bright future. ASSISTANT COACHES Herman Niehaus and Robert Gl The Millidek staff has chosen Don Petty " M " man of 1957. The " M " man is selected each year on the basis of athletic ability, sportsmanship, scholarship, and extra-cur- ricular activities. Don meets all of these requirements. He has lettered in basket- ball and baseball for four years and has always displayed the finest sportsmanship on the court and on the field. He has main- tained a good grade average, and the long list after his name on the senior activity page proves that he has been busy in campus affairs. Just to mention a few of Don ' s ac- tivities, he served as president of the senior class, was captain of the basketball team for two years, and was elected to Who ' s Who. Row 1: H. Mitchell, R.

" Heap " and Pete both lettered all four years, both made Ail-American during their playing days, and both have been named to all-CCI teams. These two will long be remembered for their grid- iron feats at Millikin. It was a hot Saturday afternoon last fall when the Big Blue of Millikin opened its 1956 football season against a big, experienced Missouri Valley squad. Although the under-manned Blue lost that opening day, the team went on to its best football season since World War II, winnmg six games in a row. Row 1: G. Wolanin, P. Innis, L. Slater, F.

Hal Fuson All Conference John Connolly Leland Sexton Pete Innis All Conference All American The entire season boiled down to the meeting of the two great powers of the conference, Millikin and Wheaton. Both teams had been undefeated in CCI play, with 6-0 records. They met head on in a battle that would decide the conference champs. The Blue battled all the way on that final Saturday, but couldn ' t hold Wheaton down; the Crusaders won the game and the champion- ship. The Blue did get second-place, howevei; so next year they will have a bone to pick with Wheaton. Blue Stand ' Outs Some of the Blue stand-outs really distinguished themselves this past season. Lyle Slater, completing his fourth year of football for Millikin, was named to the small college AU-American first team and to the AU-CCl first string. For a second year in a row, he won the Lou Epperson Memorial Award for lineman of the year. Lyle Slater Jim Jolley Joe Lambert Larry Kane All Conference All Conference All Conference All American Joe Lambert set a new conference rushing record with 808 yards in 109 carries. He was also third in conference individual scoring with fifty-four points. 91 Four other Millikin players were named to All Conference teams. Joe Lam- bert made the first team half-back spot. Larry Kane, quarter-back; Hal Fuson, end; Frank Biddle, guard, were named to the All Conference second team. Bill Innis Larry Haab Merle Chapman Dave Rayhill Gene Wolanin Next Fall ' s Outlook The Blue will be out to win the CCI championship next year, after so nar- rowly missing top honors last fall. Don Shroyer will have thirteen returning letter winners to work with, eleven of which played regularly last fall. Four of these thirteen were All Conference selections. With this experienced nucleus, Millikin will make it tough for CCI opponents next year. Ghe Me an " M " Ann Geddes, Marilyn Wilson, Barbara Bergen, Selma Mitchell, Jackie Crinigan, Phyllis Morris. A good cheering section to back its teams is important to every college campus. And a group of lively girls to lead the fans in their yells is even more essential. That is what we had this year — a group of lively and enthusiastic cheerleaders which stayed behind our teams to the last.

The Blue averaged 85 points a game in spite of setbacks caused by ineligibility and several injuries. Probably the biggest blow was the loss of Roger Lotchin, whose eligibility ran out at the end of the first semes- ter. Dean Strobel, next year ' s captain, was out for a month with appendicitis, and Terry Smith played almost the entire season with his hand in a splint. In spite of such handicaps, Millikin finished second in the conference and was invited to play in the District 20 Tournament at Macomb, Illinois. Row 1: C. Heiden, L. Myers, W. Minnis, M.

Don Petty Terry Smith Mickey Sprinkle Three seniors on this year ' s Big Blue squad won places on the CCI All Star team. Roger Lotchin, Don Petty, and Terry Smith were elected by the CCI players and coaches because of their great play during the 1956-57 basketball season. It was the first appearance on the all conference squad for " Red " and Terry and the third straight year for " Lotch. " Play The starting five got a big boost from the bench all season long. Red Dalton, back from the service, and Harm Mitchell sav plenty of action when the Blue needed some rebounding strength, foe Koger came off the bench many times when the Blue needed a little settling down. Often Joe teamed with Petty to form an unbeatable play-making combination. George Kenny came into the picture at mid-year displaying some beautiful rebounding. Glen Elms and Dune Reid rounded out a bench that saved a lot of ball games. Farewell ' ' Lofcfi ' ' The bottom right hand picture shows Millikin ' s Roger Lotchin in action. In his seven semesters as Millikin ' s star center, Rog has showed the way with his brilliant shooting, fierce rebounding, and fine teamwork. During his freshman year, he set a new conference record for freshmen by scoring 405 points; and by the end of his last semester of play, he had moved into second place in total scoring with 1577 points. Millikin is certainly proud of " Lotch " and will always remember him as an all-time great.

Dick Allison started his second season at shortstop, and Don Petty, playing his fourth season as a Blue regular, was at the keystone sack. In the outfield, Don Holler and DeWayne Zank, both .300 hitters last year, returned to right and left fields, re- spectively. In the center field slot again this year was Rick Hazelrigg. Despite the number of experienced play- ers, Don Shroyer was faced with the prob- This is the way to run laps??? lem of building a pitching department, since Millikin ' s two ace pitchers were both lost to graduation last year. Larry Haab, Decatur sophomore, was the only hurler on the staff with CCI experience. Shroyer had good prospects, however, in Joe Koger, Dean Strobel, and Frank Montagnino, a transfer from the University of Illinois. This pitching staff proved itself in helping Millikin ' s base- ball team have once again a successful CCI season. With snow still coming down in the mid- dle of April, Millikin ' s spring sports schedule got off to a slow start. The first track meet, as well as other spring sports games, was cancelled because of bad weather. With such weather conditions, the track squad had to limit its activities to the running track inside the gym. When the weather finally permitted it, Millikin men hit the cinders. 105 With only four returning lettermen, Coach Ralph Allan was faced with a tremendous rebuilding program to enable the Blue to regain its place in CCI track competition. Much of this season ' s success depended on these squad veterans. Joe Lambert, who starred as a Millikin half-back last fall, re- turned to the Millikin sports scene as cap- tain of the track squad. Joe was an excellent pole-vaulter and javelin man. He also backed Jan Anderson in the shot-put depart- ment. Jim Jolley, another first stringer on the football team, was out to break the discus record this season. In pre-season workouts, Jim consistently hit the 125 mark. Bob Glass completed the short list of lettermen and came through with several points in the hurdle events.

Men ' s Intramurals The men ' s intramural leagues enjoyed another successful year. Competi- tion was keen among the organizations, resulting in many well played gomes. Intramurals consists of competition in football, basketball, volleyball, soft- ball, table tennis, and track. As each sport comes into season, games in both the active and pledge leagues are scheduled and played. At the end of the year, a trophy goes to the pledge team and to the active team with the highest total points. INTRAMURAL MANAGERS Fau ' . Heyduck, Bill Wright, Wally Knutson, Bill Krehemker. 110 Women ' s Athletic Assodation The purpose of the Women ' s Athletic Association is to interest girls in sports. It gives all university women a chance to participate in sports by spon- soring the intramural program. Included in the WAA program were speedball, bowling, and deck tennis the first semester and basketball, volleyball, and badminton the second. At the end of the season, a rotating trophy is awarded to the organization whose team has made the most points. At the same time, individual honors are given to the girls who are active in the association. WAA again sponsored the Annual Intercollegiate Tennis Tournament. Other activities included a fall picnic, a Sports Day, and the selection of the WAA girls. Miss Dorothy McClure served as faculty adviser. INTRAMURAL BASKETBALL W.A.A.

' UC m ...IN CLASSES Classes in education, classes in biology, classes in acting, or classes in marriage ... at Millikin you found all these and more (yes, even a class in swimming). Through mutual respect both in and out of classes, friendships between faculty and students provided you with a mental awakening. 115 Dean C. L. Miller has served Millikm for many years and in many ways. He took the lead of Acting President upon his capable shoulders upon the retirement of Dr. Malone and fulfilled the many duties in a competent and efficient manner. A strong supporter of dual emphasis in education. Dean Miller be- lieves that technical skills need to be bal- anced by liberal arts. At MiUikin he has Vi orked actively for his beliefs, feeling that our future civilization will need both types of education in all fields. 116 DEAN FRANCES E. FALVEY falvey, a real friend Dean Falvey is one of the most beloved members of the Millikin family. She always has a friendly hello and cheerful smile for everyone she meets. Dean of Women, Director of Student Affairs, teacher, and counselor are her many duties, and she handles them with ease and efficiency. Thank you, Dean Falvey, for your faithful service to Millikin. WALTER B. GRAY Director of Admissions and Public Relations JOHN F. BUEIHORN, JR. Dean of Chapel Without the deans and administrators our attendance at Millikin would not be possible. Their work is necessary to keep the university running smoothly. Directing the school of music, counselling the veterans, recruiting new students, planning chapel services, preparing class schedules, regulating finances, and procuring jobs for students are just a few of their many tasks. Thanks to each one of them for doing such a fine job and for making our college careers pos- sible. BYRON L. KERNS Registrar R. WAYNE GILL Business Manager GLEN R.

This is a for- mula showing the financial benefits of a college education based on today ' s salaries. It shows simply that for an investment of $2000 per year and 4 years of your time you may net about $103,000 more in your lifetime than the man whose formal educa- tion stops at high school. The typical high school graduate will earn $165,000 in his lifetime compared to the typical college graduate who will earn $268,000. These are average figures, and, of course, you can do much better, or much worse. Yet it points out one way you can help assure yourself of $3000 a year more than you could have earned otherwise. This extra income can mean a better home for you . . a complete education for your children . . a full and more reward- ing life for you and your family. Other rewards a college education can help you achieve may be even more signifi- cant than a higher income : a deeper under- standing of people ... a greater ability to get along well with others ... a fuller life, to mention but a few. When you add up the years of your learning, remember that you are adding up your future. And education is an invest- ment in the future which will return to you many advantages. Estimated average cost of attending college in- cluding tuition, room and board, books, and inci- dental expenses.
