After returning from colorful Colorado, where the International Convention was held last summer, the Zetas began the year with many new ideas. At Homecoming, we were happy to have our float tie for third place. Our two house dances, " Harlequin Holiday " and " Crystal Castle " , which is to become an annual event, our tree trimming party, and our Christmas dinner were special events in the first semes- ter. Second semester featured the scholarship dinner, the annual faculty buffet and the spring formal. Zetas have been active on campus this year as Jan Gallatin was elected to Who ' s Who, and Joan Craig was initiated into Al- pha Epsilon Rho. Among Zetas in leadership positions on campus were Sue Pharis, presi- dent of the Spanish Club; Jan Gallatin, vice- president of the WAA, and treasurer of SEA; Jane Unzicker, head majorette; and Lynda Satterfield, drum majorette. Other members of Zeta Tau Alpha held offices in various organizations. We extend our sincere thanks to our house director, Mrs. D. M.

DECATURIAN Mary Tempel Stone, editor, and Dave Ast, business manager, brought the Decaturian through a year of growth during 1958-1959. The Decaturian was larger this year, six pages weekly; and it changed in general ap- pearance with the switch to the exclusive use of the Bodoni type family in headline typog- raphy. The new three-column masthead also provided more front page news space and greater flexibility and vari ety in makeup. Assistant editor, Fred McTaggart; sports editor, Tony Chamblin; feature editor, Pat Auk- land; activities editor, Bev Harrell; proof editor, Emilyann Berg; and circulation manager, Elaine Miller offered valuable assistance. MILLIDEK EDITORS Carol Frede and Carol Mavon New buildings will soon rise on the campus of Millikin University. Students are displaying new evidence of a desire to learn. Under the leadership of President McKay, a long-range development program is being launched. In the spirit of growth dominating every aspect of our university life, the theme of our yearbook is " Millikin and Its Students Advance Together " . The editors have endured the usual head- aches and nightmares accompanying a college yearbook, but now through your cooperation, deadlines have been met. With satisfaction the staff presents to you, the students of Millikin University, the 1959 MILLIDEK. MILLIDEK STAFF Row 1: B.Barth, M, Noack, N. Dahner. Row 2: n Clements, B. Kerrigan, J.

In his 12 years at Millikin, the Blue have won five College Conference of Illinois championships and have finished second three times. In 1951, he guided the Blue to a second-place finish in the national tournament of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. Coach Don Shroyer finished his third year as head football coach. In 1956, the Big Blue finished second to Wheaton. In 1957 it finished third and this year, sixth. ASSISTANT COACH Hal Pritchard « 130 » 1959 M ' Man " Jungle Jim " Jolley, Millikin ' s first three-year letterman since 1942 has been selected as " M " man of 1959 by the Millidek editors. The award is based on athletic ability, scholarship, sports- manship, and extra-curricular activities. Jim is right at the top in each of these categories. Captain of the 1959 track squad and holder of the Joe Catlin memorial award, Jolley has pinned down letters in football, basketball and track both last year and this year. He has been a regular in football for three years and in bas- ketball for the last two years. Yet somehow Jim seems to find time for extra-curricular activities. He served as presi- dent of " M " club early this year and has served as sergeant-at-arms for Delta Sigma Phi the past two years. Row 1: B. Stoutenborough, D. MacGregor, W. Wright, M. Perelli, T.

However, the season was highlighted by the play of senior lettermen Bill Innis, Jack Gordy, Frank Biddle, Merle Chapman, Rick Hazelrigg, Jim Jolley, Larry Haab, and Nick Evangelista. Hazelrigg was selected as Lineman of the Year by the Decaturian, and was named to the CCl All-Star defensive team. 134 Jim Jolley Dave Resler Jim Lyles Offense or Defense?
