Business Managers: Larry Partington and Al Schroeder. Keflections o We worked and studied in the Shadows of our Towers : From art classes in the top of the towers to machine shop classes in the Industry Building, we earned our education And we played and relaxed in the Shadows of our Towers, too : With warm-weather relaxation on the campus, sports, TGIF meetings, and social activities, we enjoyed extra-curricular life. In years to come, the filmy foliage of the trees will serve as a bordering frame for our memories, for our life, for our Reflections of Millikin University, captured in words and pictures on these pages. 2 President McKay met with students formally and ' informally and thel mutual acquaintance- ships soon developed into firm friendships. To Our flew IPresident DR. PAUL McKAY President Paul L. McKay s arrival on the campus seemed to bring us a new desire for accomplishments. Me spohe of his desire to make Millik in known as a center of culture and intellectual integrity throughout the entire mid-west, and students soon noticed he was quietly and efficiently working for that purpose.

Millikin taught us college is not a place to show off what we already know, but instead a place to discover gaps in our own knoivledge. PRESIDENT PAUL McKAY DEAN C. L. MILLER Installed as Millikin ' s president October 17, 1957, Dr. Paul L. McKay and his charm- ing wife and daughter quickly added an air of congeniality to the campus. The Deccrturian added to its long list of editorial plaudits, " . . . an extremely ver- satile and capable man: an intellectual; a minister; a wonderful speaker with a clear, firm voice; a somewhat shy and quiet man; a firm believer in his convictions; a man who has answered the question thinking men ask themselves, ' Why are we here? ' " Dean C. L. Miller, as Dean of the Uni- versity, has the difficult task of continuous- ly raising the standards of our expanding college while handling the many problems that confront students and faculty. Proof that he does so is seen in the harmonious campus life. 18 DEAN FRANCES E. FALVEY E. W. PLOENGES, Dean of Veterans Dean of Women, Frances E. Falvey, has earned a warm respect from everyone she has worked with on campus — and that means 99% of the student body — because Dean Falvey is known as the one to go to when confusion or trouble strikes. Also Di- rector of Student Affairs, a mathematics in- structor, and tireless committee worker, Dean Falvey is probably the best-loved member of the Millikin ' s campus community. JOHN F. BURHORN. JR.

Lighting facilities at MU are poor. 59 echons of Mctwities Reflected in dance hids, in programs, in souvenirs, one can see many things: . . . a special dance, perhaps ; ... or a perfect evening; . . . a whirlwind weekend of fun and laughter; ... or a thought-provoking conference. . . . Comedy and Tragedy, Musica Evenings, or any of a million other things will shine hazily from precious thoughts and souvenirs in the soft light of remembrance. Now we SEE them reflected; soon we 11 only PERCEIVE them, these reflections of that wonderful experience called College Life. 60 Freshman Camp proved to be a happy educational experience when Frosh were introduced to MU. Unghff! The freshmen become bothered and bewildered ♦ ♦ ♦ The outstanding Freshman Camp seemed to set the pace for the new crop of beanie- wearers, and throughout the year they rolled in high gear, even waking up the stolid sen- iors. That old song about " Bewitched, Both- ered, and Bewildered " was true for only a short time. Not only did they assist in the organiza- tions already existing, but they also initiated a Booster Club which will probably become one of MU ' s traditions in coming years. The Big " M " was burned the last night at Frosh Camp, and the reflected letter on the water burned its way into their minds, giving the freshmen a strong impression of school spirit. 62 Not all was work at Millikin, Freshmen learned, and they entered into the social whirl with zest and enthusiasm. They gleefully announced their victory tugging rope in the annual Frosh-Sophomore meet (but they lost the event, anyhow). 1 And then it was Homecoming Weekend! Co-chairmen Barb Bergen and Ron Herman deserve credit for the wonderful weekend of events. Homecoming was successful: Millikin won, 28-14, over Lake Forest; Dr. McKay was in- troduced to the alums; the floats and house decorations were beautiful; we had a won- derful queen; and the freshmen had to con- tinue wearing beanies until Thanksgiving! Dr. Paul L. McKay was officially installed. The Freshmen tried valiantly, but the Sophomores were victorious in the annual tilt be- tween the two classes. The Homecoming Dance, with the Hilltoppers, featured construction materials for decora- tions to follow the theme of " Building the New at Old MU. " During Homecoming festivities, TGIF meetings were infrequent. The reason? There were too many things to do! The Homecoming show was entertaining, the dance fun, and friendliness was everywhere. The " Zingfield Follies " Homecoming Show. was a smash hit for the Homecoming Queen, Jackie Crinigan, and her court were presented at half-time of the MU-Lake Forest football game. ♦ ♦ ♦ with prize-winning floats ♦ Delta Sigma Phi won first place in the float parade using the theme " Our Hearts Won ' t Be Broken, " with Fraternity Dream Girl Skip Heileman swinging in the center of the heart. " We ' re Laying for Them " won second place for Sigma Alpha Epsilon. The chicken even laid eggs! Bud Ward, President McKay, Mickey Sprinkle, and trophies. ♦ ♦ ♦ and fancy house decorations ♦ ♦ ♦ First place house decoration award went to Tau Kappa Epsilon. Awards for House Decorations went to Tau Kappa Epsilon, first place with " Aloha Alums — Welcome Back to Our Little Grass Shack " ; Delta Delta Delta, second place, using the theme " Delighted to See You, Alums " ; and Delta Sig- ma Phi, third place, " Welcome Alums, Back to the Web of Fellowship. " Delta Delta Delta Delta Sigma Phi KAY JIBBEN Delta Delta Delta ♦ ♦ ♦ and most of all a Queen and her Court Jackie Crinigan, Pi Beta Phi, senior from Springfield, ruled Homecoming festivities with sweetness and grace. The blue-eyed brunette ' s sincere smile and charm made this weekend a delightful one. CAROL GREGORY Zeta Tau Alpha BELLA ZI Millikin Independent Association Cyrano rides again! fun and frolic for a good cause. The 1957 Campus Chest drive, under the leadership of co-chairmen Dick Grove and Jackie Crinigan and their committee, began its week of campus activities with a gay carnival in Lower Hall. Following the carni- val, students and faculty went to A. T. Hall for the humorous and lively talent show. After this kick-off, and later in the week, faculty members were auctioned to the high- est bidder, John Cross was crowned Mr. Campus Chest, and the annual Campus Chest dance ended the festivities. By " do- ing its best for Campus Chest, " Millikm ex- ceeded this year ' s goal. MR. CAMPUS CHEST CANDIDATES: ROW 1: J. Cross, B. Slade. ROW 2: P. Stoutenborough, B. Krehemker, T. Wey- her. " Wake Up and Live " Religious books were displayed. This year Religious Emphasis Week was a tremendous success. The week was full of activities such as chapels, seminars, din- ners, and buzz sessions. Three outside speak- ers and three Decatur speakers took part in the activities. The students and faculty of Millikin not only benefited from this week, but also enjoyed it very much. RE Week chairmen are nice people; they even can smile at 7 a. m. 73 " Laurence-a-Welliver Tours-a-the-World " WE ATTENDED the Variety Show for humor . . " Is There Life on Earth? " We sought the answer to this pressing question, but, as the curtains closed on our final saucer-stop, we wondered, " Is this life on Earth?!! " While weighing these problems, a full house had many a chance for laughter, excitement, and a liberal " worldly " education. " The Redcoats " ♦ ♦ ♦ the Conservatory ' s " Gypsy Baron " for music ♦ ♦ ♦ The Gypsy Baron, this year ' s annual musical production, reflected the out- standing talent of the music school staff and students. Hubert Norville pro- duced and staged the opera, and Paul Skinner and Wesley Snyder worked with the orchestra and chorus, respectively. The delightful comedy featured many famous Johann Strauss waltzes. " Cyrano de Bergerac " was the first production by Town and Gown, and a swashbuckling performance it was, too. ♦ ♦ ♦ Town and Gown ' s spectaculars for drama ♦ ♦ ♦ Town and Gown ' s " Cyrano de Bergerac, " with Lou Catron in the title role of the man with the long nose, was probably the most spectacular dramatic achievement in Deca- tur. The group also presented " Antigone, " " Man of Destiny, " " How He Lied to Her Hus- band, " and " Taming of the Shrew. " " Man of Destiny ' " Antigone " 76 Concerto Festival ♦ ♦ ♦ and fine arts for culture. Again this year Fine Arts brought a won- derful series with Soprano Theresa Green, the hilarious Goslar Pantomime Circus, the impressive St. Olaf Choir, the piano wizard- ry of Nelson and Neal, and the musical Concerto Festival. All told, it was a tre- mendous season. Nelson and Neal Goslar Pantomime Circus Theresa Green This Sandy girl ... is she dancing or is she trying to escape? The Student Council ' s " Argyle Amble " produced many " hole-y " socks, but was fun anyh. The campus community enjoyed the dinner sponsored by International Students. warn Reflections of Organizations Campus organizations have two important contributions: lessons in leadership and cooperation with others. Each organization reflects the minds of its leaders and members in the way it conducts itself ; each has the opportunity and the power to raise itself to higher goals by its own contribution to the university and to its members. Millikin has an organization for everyone who desires to join . . . social, honorary, or service. And this reflects, in turn, a well-rounded university, one that realizes the importance of extra-curricular life. Graduates of Millihn will reflect training received on the campus. We re indeed fortunate to have so many opportunities to learn vital lessons through organizations. 82 Student Council decorated the Christmas tree in front of A.T. Hall. Row 1: P. Mickle, D.

Senior Panhellen ' ic Council The Panhellenic Council is an organization composed of the presidents and rush chairmen from the four national women ' s social fraternities on campus with Dean Falvey as adviser. Its main function is to determine rush rules. The president this year was Carol Marshall. This year ' s activities included the Pan- hellenic Banquet honoring new pledges, the Panhellenic Dance, and the Pan- hellenic Slumber Party. Interfratern ' ity Council The Interfraternity Council is composed of the faculty advisers, presidents, and two other representatives from each fraternity. The Council acts as a clearing house for all fraternity problems. This year the I. F. C. dance, the exchange programs, and the I.F.C. cheering section at football and basketball games was sponsored by the Council. The president this year was Lowell Bower. Row 1: J. Nies, N.

Alpha Chi Omega Inspired by the many new ideas from the National Convention in California, the Al- pha Chi ' s began another successful year of sisterhood. With the help of the entire campus, once again the annual street dance was a suc- cess. Many thanks to all of you. We all felt that the high spot of the first semester was our Christmas party for underprivileged chil- dren, for we gained more than they did by watching their glowing eyes as they opened their gifts. The pledges contributed much of their time and effort in making self-help toys for children suffering from cerebral palsy. Alpha Chi Omega has many members who have been active in campus leader- ship this year. Dixie Hertenstein served as Religious Emphasis Week Co-Chairman, Darla Lebo as Millidek Co-Editor, Marlene Snearly as Pi Mu Theta Vice-President, and Carol Marshall as Panhellenic President and Senior Class Vice-President. We are grateful to Mrs. W. D. Peel, our House Director; Mrs. Richard Dill, our Alum- nae Adviser; and Mr. Ralph Allan, our Fac- ulty Adviser, for their guidance and help. Row 1: M. Crain, M.

Our Tri Delta Work Day, Pine Tea, Christmas Party for underprivileged children, formals, and house dances high- lighted the social calendar.

" These are the cardinal virtues of Tau Kappa Epsilon. They represent the essential elements of our fraternity and of our lives. Not only do we read these words from the printed pages of our pledge manual, but once we take on the bond of Tau Kappa Epsilon, we live by these tenets. We of Beta Chapter are justly proud of this heritage of our fraternity. The TKEs enjoyed an outstanding Rush Week followed by the pledge dance, " Early Autumn. " This dance was followed by our annual " Harvest Hop " and by our winter formal, " Winter Silhouettes. " Our Spring formal, " The Festival of the Red Carnation, " was one of the outstanding social events of the year. Sorority exchanges and house dances headed the social calendar through- out the rest of the year. We were honored during homecoming with a visit by Mr. Frank Scott, national pres- ident of TKE and also an alum of the class of 1924.

The organi- zation enables the veterans on the Millikin campus to participate in social and cultural activities, keep abreast of current veteran ' s affairs and help promote the welfare of the Millikin community. VET served the university this past year in many quiet yet useful ways. Many will remember the color guard at all home foot- ball games, the drivers and cars of the Home- coming queen and her court, and the ticket vendors at the Town and Gown productions and Variety Show. The VET Christmas dance will always be remembered by all who attended. A size- able donation to the Salvation Army for a needy family was realized, as well as a good time for our wives and sweethearts. In the spring, VET celebrated its annual Founders ' Day dinner, honoring its very cap- able president Bill Coffey and faculty ad- visor, Dean E. W. Ploenges. The dance, many informal social gatherings, and the Home- coming float composed a well-balanced year of social activities for Upsilon Epsilon Tau. Row 1: R. Massingale, R. Wheelwright, R. Jewell, P.

Bob Muehlebach (first semester) and Jim Kaiser (second semester) served as business managers for the growing Dec, more expen- sive than ever. The Dec also initiated a Citizenship Award given at Honors Assembly. Though students still called it The 01 ' Rag, it served as spokesman for the campus, spearheading controversial matters.

Bergen 195$ MilUdek Millidek co-editors Alice Mueller and Dar- la Lebo chose the theme of this year ' s book ( " Reflections of MU " ) rather carefully to please the students who thrive on memories. Yet it is even money odds that in future years Alice and Darla will but seldom look at the finished product because their reflec- tions or memories will be too vivid: reflec- tions of late pictures and hashed copy, of irate professors and clubs who missed pic- ture appointments, of general fatigue.

To the rest of us on publications, they served as inspiration, for through it all . . . through their long hours of dreary work while the halls echoed with laughing stu- dents . . . Alice and Darla managed not only to keep on working, but to remain cheerful and pleasant bosses. They did their good job so guietly that we staff members can merely offer an equally quiet " thank you " to them. Now, when the job is almost over, they can look back and laugh at former tense moments . . . and these, too, are Reflections of MU. Lou Catron Copy Editor PHOTOGRAPHERS B. Dillingham, D. Gill. ARTISTS N. Titchenal, G. DeCourcy SENIOR AND INFORMAL EDITORS K. Landes, L. Giller, L. Brown SPORTS EDITORS B. Young, J. Finley " Reflections of The Big Blue s victories and defeats were reflected in the faces of our team and student body. However, though the victories were not quite as numerous as we would have liked, the Blue did not give up. Win or lose, the Big Blue spirit is always the same. This spirit is an intangihle thing, hut it always has two characteristics — drive and determination. 128 COACHES Ralph Allan, Don Shroyer Alums Allan and Shroyer serve Big Blue Coach Ralph Allan and Coach Don Shroyer, both of whom served Millikin as outstanding athletes in their college days, this year continued to serve MU as out- standing coaches. Coach Allan, in eleven seasons as head basketball coach, has guided the Blue to five College Conference of Illinois champion- ships, three second place finishes, one third, and one fourth. In 1951, he guided the Big Blue to a second-place finish in the national tournament of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. In both of Don Shroyer ' s first two years as football coach, the Big Blue have just missed conference championships. In 1956 the Big Blue finished second to Wheaton, and this year, finished third. Assistant Coach, Don Holler 130 M " Man of 1958 Larry Kane has been chosen " M " man of the year by the Millidek editors. The selec- tion was made on the basis of athletic abili- ty, sportsmanship, and extra-curricular ac- tivities. Larry was a standout as Big Blue quarterback for four years and served as field captain this past year. Kane, who stands only 5 foot 7 inches tall and weighs only 135 pounds, will probably go down in history as one of the all-time Millikin foot- ball greats. In his four years with the Big Blue he has shattered practically every College Confer- ence of Illinois passing record. And this year his running and kicking contributions converted him from a " passing whiz " into a " triple-threat. " " The Killer " is a perfect example of a student who provides his own financial support. He has a meal job and earns his room rent by serving as a bar- racks manager. LARRY KANE, " M " MAN M„ | .

Despite a poor finish, the Big Blue still finished high in the College Conference of Illinois football standings with a 4-2-1 record. In their only non-conference game, the Blue lost to a fine Missouri Valley team. Millikin was undefeated in conference play going into the last three games of the season. However, after a tie with Wesleyan, the Blue dropped successive games to North Central and Wheaton. One of the highlights of the season was the fine playing of seniors Larry Kane, John (Monk) Connolly, Hal Fuson, Dave Rayhill, and Ron Wisher. 133 These things typify Mli football These are just a few of the things that typify Millikin football. There is the industry building whistle counting out the score. Remember the Elmhurst game when the whistle blew 52 times? And the M Club refreshment stand where you can buy hot dogs and that hot black stuff they call coffee? Larry Kane. Ron Wisher. Joe Rayhill, Dave Rayhill. Larry Haab.

The record-smashing 113-96 win over North Cen- tral and the near upset of Quincy are two examples. However, prospects for next year are good. Coach Allan will lose only guard Mickey Sprinkle and reserve Duncan Reid via graduation. 141 BASEBALL ft J. ?• A " . ..-•.»:., - -- , . • - - " v. " ' .

Coach Shroyer had a letterman for each position except second base, where Tom Carlson took over for the graduated Don Petty. How- ever, as the season opened, the Blue were in need of depth behind the plate. Letterman Ron Wisher was the only catcher reporting for practice. 147 TRACK Seven lettermen were among twenty-two candidates reporting for opening track prac- tice. Pole-vaulter Howard Bartley captained the sguad. Other lettermen were Chuck Davelis, middle distance; Tom Weyher, high jump; Bill Boyer, pole vault; Jim Jolley, weights; Jan Anderson, weights; and Dun- can Reid, javelin. Coach Allan.

The Vets competed for points in the Intramural League for the first time. The four men ' s social organizations and the Millikin Inde- pendent Association completed the league. The program included competition in touch football, basketball, volleyball, soft- ball, ping pong and track. There was pledge League competition in football, basketball, and volleyball. W. A. A.

Women ' s Athletic Association The main activity of the Women ' s Athletic Association is the sponsoring of the women ' s intramurals program. The activities begin early in the fall with the annual picnic for all Millikin women to acquaint them with the activities of W.A.A. Many sports, such as speedball, bowling, basketball, and bad- minton, keep everyone busy throughout the year. In the spring honors are presented to W.A.A. members on the basis of the num- ber of points they have achieved. Also at this time a traveling trophy is presented to the organization with the greatest number of points. Elaine Miller served as president and Miss Dorothy McClure . as faculty ad- viser. 156 MRS. RALPH ALLAN Mrs. Ralph Allan capably heads the Pub- licity Office at Millikin. In this position she constantly strives to publicize new events of the university, in order to make them known to Decatur and the surrounding area. Mrs. Allan provides information and op- portunities for pictures to the Decatur Herald and Review newspapers, covering such events as Town and Gown plays, Fine Arts Series, music programs, assembly programs, and special features of MU life.
