Text from Pages 1 - 286 of the 1975 volume:

i Every fall a timeless beauty touches Millikin University. The oaks and nnaples begin to unfold their matchless colors against the red stone architecture, creating a quiet artistry. The familiar sound of Westminster ' s chimes fill the air and add the finishing touches to a campus whose attitudes, organizations and students have gone virtually untouched throughout the dramatic political, social, and economic upheavals of our time. To this atmosphere some 1 300 students arrive each September. Friendships are renewed over Bachman, Turner, Overdrive and Busch at Keggers, woodsies and hairy buffalos. Familiar sayings of " Let ' s cook " and " He ' s smooth-doggin ' it " can be heard as students celebrate their return or first arrival to an institution not unlike the universities of the 1 950 ' s. f i t It Many have said the University exists in a world of its own, reminiscent of a musical by Metro- Goldwyn-Mayer starring Peter Lawford and June Allyson. Good or Bad? No one is certain. Each must search his own mind. Louie James picks off another pass for the defense. Jim Forbes resorting to prayer for a tackle. North Park defense puts the clamps on Mike Rockford. Coaching plus CIGSITG proved to be a win- ing formula for the 1974 " Big Blue " football team. Though hampered by countless injuries and an inexperienced offensive line, Headcoach " Skip " Mathieson and his coaching assistants pieced together one of the finest football teams Millikin fans have seen in years. Injuries, numerous as in the past, and many openings left by graduated seniors last year, forced the team to rely on underclassmen material. However, the intense desire of all team members to work and work hard gave the team the competitive edge, and led the " Blue " to an overall season record of 9-1, and a share in the College Conference of Illinois and Wiscon- sin Championship berth. Kevin Koehler demonstrates his pass catching abilities in Augustana ' s defensive secondary. Seniors: Bob Gotts, Ralph McQuiggan, and Tony Dear in pursuit of the Wheaton quarterback. 21 Gary Cook looks on as Louie James barely misses stifling the field goal attempt. Mike Rockford on a keeper, scrambles for some extra ground. Jim Douglas pulls down an aerial from Doug Neibuhr for six points.

The team was beset by illness and in- jury during most of January and had difficulty regaining the fine form it showed in the early season. Despite these setbacks the team went on to a second place finish both in the CCIW and the Illinois Private College Meet along with a third straight NAIA District title. The team did break 1 3 of 1 7 varsity records. Greg Peterson, Doug Slater, Jerry Westwater and Don McNeely were all CCIW cham- pions. In the national scene the team plac- ed 1 6th in the NAIA National Meet. The 800 free relay team of John Lienhop, Mark Steenrod, Jim ZirngibI, and Doug Slater earned All American honors with a sixth finish. Marcia Morey continued her record breaking with a New American Standard in the 200 breaststroke at the National AAU meet in Cincinnati. Senior Jim ZirngibI was captain and voted Most Valuable Swimmer and Mark Steenrod, a freshman, was chosen Most-Improved. Jim ZirngibI psychs up. 26 Greg Peterson towels off after his race.

The Blue Cagers finished the season with a .500 mark, way below pre-season expectations. The problem with this year ' s team wasn ' t due to a lack of talented personnel. The Big Blue had one of their more gifted teams in years, with the likes of Gobczynski, Mosser, Bax- ter and Littrell. The trouble seemed to be the inability of The Blue to get it all together and play as one ball club. Coach Gray and all-time scorer. Leon Gobczynski. Kneeling: D. Mott, B. Beck, R. Dalton, J.

Conference Co- Champs for the 1974-75 season was the result of a surge of strength in both hitting and pitch- ing by The Big Blue Baseball Team late in the year. Starting the season off on the wrong foot, the team ended its annual southern trip with an overall record of 1-9. The poor performance was due to a lack of hitting and a multitude of errors. Once back at M.U., the Blue made an unbelievable turn around, going 14-2 in CCIW Conference play. The only two losses were at the hands of Illinois Wesleyan and strong Elmhurst. The change in The Blue was too late however to gain sole possession of the winners berth, as honors were shared with Elmhurst. 36 Mueller tries to gain hand control to set up a fireman ' s carry. Guy Hemmerich in total command of his match. Two individual champions, along with a fifth place team ranking in the CCIW wrestling tournament, rounded out the season for the Big Blue grapplers. Led by Coach Carl Poelker, who is in his second year as head coach, The Blue matmen proved formidable foes for any con- ference team, boasting a dual meet record of 8-3 and two NAIA National qualifiers in the likes of Jeff Newberg and Bruce Metchell.

A female x-country run- ner, a first for the CCIW, depicted both the spirit and growing poten- tial of the " Big Blue " cross country team. The team accumulated a 4-2 record for dual meets and placed seventh in the CCIW. Being a young team, beginning the season with five freshmen, two sophomores, two juniors, and one senior, the runners feel that this season proved to be a successful one, and just one of many to come.

The squad attributes their success to the individual record-breaking efforts of several members. Sophomore Ken Russell broke the CCIW high jump record with an unbelievable 6 ' 9 " leap, while his teammates, Steve Schepper, James Harris, and Mike Estes went on to smash several other Millikin track records. Junior James Harris sprints towards tine tape for a first place finish in the 10 yard dash. Jeff Korando sets the pace for the 4-lap mile.

Led by Coach Mike Brannon and senior standouts in the likes of Bill Wells, Dave Bosak, and Steve Moline. The Blue Rac- quetmen totaled up 1 4 points in the CCIW tourney, second only to Augie ' s 20 points. 44 Cheerleaders are an integral part of any university athletic program. The Big Blue cheerleaders proved this statement to be fact in the 1 974-75 sports season at Millikin. This past year they followed the Big Blue Teams from the con- fines of Griswold Center to as far away as the Boot Hill Bowl, keeping alive the spirit of competition in Millikin athletes as well as fans.

W.A.A. sponsored various athletic programs and tourna- ments between women on the Millikin campus, thus promoting not only a spirit of competition but a fairness in women ' s sports.

Women Cagers had a good year considering the excessive number of fouls and injuries which plagued the team all season. In CCIW Tournament play the Netwomen were ahead of Augie by four points during the second half, but ended up suffering a terrible defeat when a few star- ters experienced some foul trouble. Although the women did have their share of disheartening losses in their quest for the CCIW crown, the teamwork was there and it could prove to be a foundation for the future.

" STUDENT: I liked them at first because they were really different, but after a while it got pretty old. " VIOLA: Actually I am not trying to give a particular message. " STUDENT: It was alright for exer- cise, but for performance to sit and watch . . . no! " VIOLA: It has to do with people. It has to do with situations, but there is not a story development. " STUDENT: I was kind of intrigued by it. " VIOLA: In my work almost all dancers have to make choices of several things they are going to do and that takes a kind of maturity. " STUDENT: I thought she was enthusiastic, she had talent . . . she was very creative.

" " He was his usual fantastic self and his back-up band was great. " " The band members playing in the audience really got everyone in- volved ... I thought he was very, very good. " " There was more response to him than to anyone else I ' ve ever seen at Millikin. It was the best thing that Convocations has ever had. " " He didn ' t do an encore even after a Trouble in River finest hour was when the horses made their appearance and stole the show. " " I enjoyed the costumes and sets very much. " " The barbershop quartet not only sang well but also enjoyed perfor- ming . . . the audience enjoyed them. " " Music Man ' s the show had potential. ' ' The National Chinese Opera Theatre " ... " A spectacular per- formance . . . the costumes were probably the most spectacular asset to the per- formance. " " I thought the show was absolute- ly flawless . . . I ' ve never seen such a flawless performance. " " The headdresses were especially beautiful . . . the symbolism in all of the costumes was very in- triguing. " ' ' The effect of Gamma Rays on Man-ln-The- Moon Marigolds .... I think the play really affected the audience ... it left you with a queer kind of feeling. " " It was the type of play that could have been boring, but it wasn ' t. " " . . . very well performed . . . the settings fit the mood of the play, but the sound effects did the most to create the atmosphere. " ' ' Michael Lorimer ... was really different; I enjoyed him. It wasn ' t the same type of music all the way through. He communicates well through his music. " " It got kind of boring toward the end. Maybe if he had been with something else, it would have been better. You have to be an awfully strong performer to be able to carry an entire program alone. " ' ' The Minnesota Orchestra ... is one of the finest orchestras in the entire country, and they gave an ex- cellent, exciting performance. Their choice of music was great. On the whole, I was very impressed. " " Usually I wouldn ' t go to hear an orchestra, but they were so good that I really enjoyed their concert. " " The Norman Luboff Choir . . . gave a really enjoyable concert. They had a good variety of music — too much of one thing would have been boring. " " I liked their spirituals and popular songs a lot — better than their sacred music. I thought they had a blending problem. " " The choir had a very refined sound. You could tell there was an awfully lot of talent there. " AO ' ' As You Like It was great. It was one of Shakespeare ' s more unusual com- edies. I don ' t usually like Shakespeare, but this was en- joyable and had enough levity that it kept the audience ' s interest. It was hard to get into it at the begin- ning, but after the plot was es- tablished it kept my interest. " " It was a relief looking at different ' theater twinks ' for a while! " " Street Scene was, for me, a very enjoyable musical. It didn ' t at all give the im- pression that it was opera — usually you think of opera as being really heavy stuff. It was easy to un- derstand — it didn ' t go over my head. Some of the characters were hilarious ! " " Street Scene was much more real-seeming than the usual opera. There was real technical art and un- iversal appeal at the same time. " 63 " Marat Sade ■ ■ . was good but hard to understand. The acting was fair overall — nothing spectacular. There were some really good parts in it, though. " " It didn ' t get the message across; even our teacher couldn ' t tell us what it meant. It was just too crazy to be a good play — I didn ' t like it. " " I liked it but a lot of people dis- agreed with me. It was bizarre and it was completely different from anything Millikin has ever seen. It was blunt — gross, crass, rude, crude! A lot of townspeople walk- ed out on it. It was very well acted. " ' ' Arms and the Man . . . was a good play but they were talking too fast. Nobody was laughing because they were talking so fast. Saturday night was much better than Friday night. " " I liked it the first night but I heard after that it wasn ' t too good. It made wars look as ridiculous as they really are. " Moving in was Minikin ' s first big event this Septennber. Freshmen were mai ing their first appearance on the big campus, and returning students were all enthusiastic about another year at M.U. There was action all around as the frat boys offered their help to all the freshman girls and " scoped " out possibilities. Of course the dumb-waiter in the dorm was out of order, so countless trips up and down stairs were made. The whole event was rather exhausting, and there were great sighs of relief as the last items were finally settled in the rooms. Two freshmen enter Blackburn Hall, wondering what is in store for them. Jim Marshall finds that carrying shoeboxes is a great way to meet girls. The whole family is put to work. 66 Susan Smith and her family make the big move into the dorm. Great weather welcomed the incoming freshmen this year at Freshman Camp which was held at the old stand by, Aller- ton Park. This year ' s co-chairmen, Jeff Dowd and Cathy Gasper, did their best to see that Freshman Camp was a success. With IVIrs. Hill ' s guidance and direction, they planned a weekend of activities to acquaint the new students with each other, with their faculty, and with Millikin ' s general atmosphere. Various activities throughout the weekend included: faculty discus- sion groups, volleyball, softball, a dance featuring " Black and White " , a midnight movie, walks through Allerton, the men ' s cabins ram- page, relay games between cabins, water fights, and the most fun of all — meeting people.

Responsible for plan- ning the weekend ' s agenda was Chairman Jane Reif. Parents were able to meet and visit with faculty and staff members during a recep- tion held at the Holiday Inn. Various other activities included registra- tion, a workshop for volunteer ad- missions counselors, a parents council meeting, and open visita- tion at the dorms and Greek houses. The highlight of the events was the Big Blue football game with North Park. A reception was held for Miss Marcia Moray, an outstanding Millikin swimmer, after the football game. All in all, it was a delightful weekend for everyone. Marcia Morey and President Miller await the halftime presentation. Miss Jane Reif is Chairman of the Fall Parent ' s Day activities.

Everyone attending enjoyed tlie wide variety of music supplied by IVIillil in ' s well-l nown Jazz Lab Band, and the audience was left speechless after the superb performance of Ms. Conley. Dr. Henderson. Dean of the School of Music, accompanied the band on a few selections. During intermis- sion of the concert, the 1974 Homecoming Queen, Miss Debbie Curfman, was crowned. Mr Schueler directs the Jazz Lab Band in another outstanding concert. A variety of music is played that appeals to all members of the audience. The concert was a great success and was enjoyed by everyone. The queen candidates await the announcement of the 1974 Homecoming Queen. David Steinberg enjoys performing for the mixed audience. Technique was the key word in the entertainment provided by David Steinberg at Homecoming. Steinberg incor- porated the trial use of a line, and either discontinued it or changed topics, depending on the audience ' s response. He felt that his feelings were con eyed best by his use of unmentionable words. All in all, Steinberg provided Millikin with a very entertaining show.

Student oper- ated, W.J.M.U. radio de livered Decatur and Millikin Univer- sity with an education in rock, soul, jazz, and blues. To attain a professional sound took the hard work of many people, not only the station manager, but the D.J. ' s, engineers, and program directors as well. In order to further use this sound as an educational tool the station worked to go stereo, a goal which will be attained in 1 975-76.

The fraternity sponsored an income tax service during second semester and by doing so created a greater awareness of their organization on campus. MUSC is a member of the Midwest Collegiate Sailing Association, and has participated in intercollegiate regattas. The Millikin University Sailing Club hosted a regatta on Lake Decatur in October, hosting 4 schools. The M.U.S.C. has been able to buy new boats as the treasury permits and has under- taken a project to build a fleet of Lasers. Membership has been open to any Millikin student, who has had sailing experience. The Environmen- tal Af fa I rS Council invited faculty and students to join its organization. Its theme was " If you care about Environment, here ' s what you can do at Millikin. " Mount Zion and Warrensburg High Schools participated in the first Water Quality Workshop con- ducted by the club. The most im- portant data collected during the workshop was the students realization that precision and ac- curacy are dependent on the methods used to analyze the samples. Dr. Groz, director of the project, felt that the students should develop two important qualities. First, the ability to im- prove their accuracy, and second, to become more critical of their data and other data collected. The first portion of the workshop was spent collecting samples and making observations at various sites. The stream flow, depth, turbidity, and temperature were all recorded.

' ' The powers of the presidency should be significantly curtailed. " With this issue in mind the Millikin Debate team traveled through Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin fighting either pro or con. This was the first time in many years that students had participated in inter- collegiate debate and forensic ac- tivities. The debate and forensic team attended fine tournaments during the 1 974-75 school year at Ball State University (3rd place). University of Wisconsin, Bradley University (3rd, 5th, and 9th place), Greenville College (4th), and Murray State University (1st). Lisa Griebel qualified for the national tournament in the Murray State tourney, the first Millikin student ever to qualify for the Nationals. Debbie Jennings, Debbie Shelton, Steve Cromell, Elaine Moser, Dr. Shelton, and Nancy Davis make up the Debate team. 159 Women who nave chosen to uphold the highest ideals of music, can in Sigma Alpha lota, the national music fraternity for women.

After exhausting auditions during the first weeks of school, the choir settled into a stringent five hour rehearsal schedule. Christmas brought about the Choir ' s annual Vespers service in Kirkland. A ten day tour through Indiana, Ohio and Illinois was successful in spite of a flu epidemic. Home concerts at Westminster Church ended the season as the schedules of each member tightened with opera and play rehearsals. ' ' Beauty in search of a word, " is a phrase that has often been used to describe music. In listening to a symphony perfor- mance at Kirkland, one indeed is aware of the truth in that state- ment. With the increased interest in music the past few years has seen the Millikin University orchestra improve in size and performance. Members of the orchestra are drawn not just from the Universi- ty, but from Decatur and surround- ing areas as well. Top Left: A flute solo adds enjoyment to the symphony performance.

Right, left, right Saturday after- noons in the Fall would not be the same without the sound of the " Big Blue March- ing Band " talent. Practicing long hours in Fairview Park, the band ' s work did not go unnoticed as they were enjoyed by football fans at halftime. Their entertainment how- ever did not stop there, for if a call on the field was bad a little " Mickey Mouse " would be heard and if a touchdown was made the fight song would immediately follow. Everyone loves a parade, except Old English costumes and ballads have set the mood for Millikin University ' s Christmas sea- son over the years. The Madrigal singers have provided Millikin stu- dents and faculty with a pleasant way in which to celebrate Christ- mas.

A graduate of Illinois Wesleyan University, Dr. Miller has had an excellent grasp of the advantages and problems small universities have had to face. He has been instrumental in Millikin ' s abilities to " operate in the black " in this age of inflation and rising costs. In hosting freshmen teas, open houses and senior dinners, the President has made a concentrated effort to relate to students and their problems. These activities have re- sulted in students feeling more a part and closer to the working force of Dr. Miller ' s position. J. Roger, as students have affectionately called him, has had a close and ef- fective rapport with the student body. A man of considerable energies. Dr. Miller was unfortunate to have sustained injuries to his leg just prior to the beginning of the 1 974- 7 5 academic year. Gerald A Bedford Assistant to thfj President Orviil ( - I l.iyos Security Captain This year marked the initial year for the James Milli- kin Scholars Program. Twenty-five freshmen were selected from a wide range of high schools to make up the first group of James Millikin Scholars. These are highly talented students who enroll for special courses during their freshman year and have considerable freedom in pursuing their careers at Millikin. Greater coordination of inter-de- partmental programs is being de- veloped under the direction of Dr. Bert C. Bach, who was appointed for one year to serve as assistant to Dr. Givens. A renewed interest in interdisciplinary courses and pro- grams has been expressed by each of the new deans at Millikin — Dean Henderson in Music and Dean Decker in Business and Industrial Management. Efforts are being made to permit a student to major in a combination of areas such as business and music, music and theatre, humanities, fine arts, and others. The interdisciplinary major increases the flexibility of Millikin ' s curriculum. Interdepartmental pro- grams that are currently available are: American Studies, Continental European Studies, Environmental Studies, Urban Studies and Busi- ness Administration. Dr. Paul R. Givens, Vice President of Acade- mic Affairs. Dr. Bert C. Bach, Assistant to the Vice Presi- dent of Academic Affairs. Kenneth Brown, Vice President of Business Affairs. C.

It is a place to go when you have a question and do not know where to find the answer. Student Affairs will help you. If you have lost your I.D. (or anything for that matter), go to Student Affairs. How about those days when you are really feeling low and you have no one to talk to — go to Student Affairs. Someone will always be willing to talk to you. As Dean Houston says, " you are not alone we are here to help. It is our hope that you find Millikin University community not only friendly but meaningful and challenging. " Carl T. Pattison, Director of Religious Affairs. 186 188 Barbara Mickelson, Library Associate. Thomas M. Butler, Director of Institutional Resources. The Millikin University Li- brSrywith its 132,000 volumes, provides intel- lectual resources for students and faculty. Non-book materials are being acquired in greater numbers to ex- tend the role of the library into the classroom. Although the constantly growing collection is straining housing capacity, the staff emphasizes service and helpfulness. Katherine Loftus, Circulation Associate. " I do a little bit of everything, " Dean Forbes replied when asked what his duties were. " That includes stimulating, facilitating, evaluating, mediating, and communicating. " Dean Forbes has a great interest in the interdepartmental majors (student designed majors) and student internships. As almost all of Millikin ' s staff, Dean Forbes holds the " open door policy " ; he is always happy to talk to the stu- dents and help them with any problems they might have. alcolm H. Forbes, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. James Smithson, assistant professor. Someone fainted during the showing of an open heart surgery movie in the fall com- parative anatomy class. Although those students were not allowed to perform such complicated pieces of surgery, they were given the oppor- tunity to practice technique by dis- secting sharks and cats in lab. Unfortunately some of these stu- dents did not return to Millikin be- cause of the uncertainty of the Nursing program at the time. The study of this problem was officially given to Dr. Marcia Dake, the new Project Director in Nursing Educa- tion at Millikin, Community College of Decatur, and the University of Illinois. Results of a one year study by Dr. Dake could lead to the es- tablishment of a Bachelor ' s degree nursing program at Millikin, which might finally end the familiar ques- tion, " Does Millikin offer a degree in nursing? " A number of Biology professors were involved in outside lectures and projects during the past year. Dr. Shell, Dr. Baird, and Dr. Jensen attended special meetings for biol- ogists. Mr .

Chem • is • try a science that deals with the com- position, structure, and properties of substances and of the transfor- mations that they undergo. Chemistry has become an impor- tant part of any science major ' s curriculum. Beginning with General Chemistry, skills were learned to prepare students for their future in Organic Chemistry, Bio-chemistry, Physical Chemistry and others. In conjunction with the Biology Department and Environmental Af- fairs Council, chemists from the student body and faculty worked together on water quality research in the Decatur area. Statistics com- piled over the last five years, point a finger at ADM and Staley ' s as prime sources of water pollutants. Workshops for area high school students were organized, to teach skills in water quality testing and control. William Pickens, assistant professor. Physics: a science that deals with matter and energy and their interactions in the fields of mechanics, heat, acoustics, optics, electricity, magnetism, radiation, atomic structure and nuclear phe- nomena. Physics classes here at Millikin are not just for those majoring in phy- sics or related courses. Physics of Sounds and Accoustics is offered especially for music majors, and photography is offered for those interested in the finer details of the art of photography. Dr. John Askill. Chairman, associate pro- fessor. Dr Loren Weaver, assistant professor. Instruction and experimentation in thinking well about a variety of concerns such as aesthetics, theism, epistemology, ethics, athe- ism, logic, life after death, God ' s existence, and free will is the pur- pose of philosophy. To enhance the experiences provided by class- es, a newly formed Philosophy Society met bi-weekly. During these meetings a guest speaker would give a short lecture and then open himself up to question and conversation. Dr An id Adell, Chairmati, asyistant pro- fessor. Dr. Frederick Mosedale, instructor. 196 A wide variety of courses expressing many interests in the field of religion is presented by the Department of Religion. They believe that while religion is primarily a matter of personal commitment and fulfillment, it should also be a dynamic force in society. In their eyes, every human issue — war, ecology, politics, crime, energy — must be viewed from the perspective of God ' s w ill for man ' s life. Interests include: the study of the Bible and Christian doctrine (Old Testament, New Testament, Basic Christian Beliefs); religion in history (History of the Christian Church, Religion in America, Religions of Mankind); religion in modern times (Religion in the 20th Century, Religion and Culture of India); religion in interplay with contem- porary culture (Philosophy of Religion, Psychology of Religion, Sociology of Religion). Many op- portunities for special study are offered — Science and Religion, Religion and the Secular, Fantasy and Humor in Religion, and others of the student ' s own choice. IVIillii in will be 75 years old in 1975, and Mr. Mc- Intire of the political science depart- ment is doing a study for the uni- versity. He also has been working on a bicentennial profile for the county. The political science department it- self was very active. It worked with a mock United Nations and spon- sored political speakers. Mr. Bottorf taught a seminar on power and influence which was quite a success. Dr. Edward Wing, Chairman, professor. Dr. Robert Mclntire, Chairman, assistant professor. Dr. William Bodamer, associate professor. James Bottorf, instructor. bert Mardock, Chairman professor Dr Stephen Dodge, assistant professor. Won one and lost one, described the history department this past year. Dr. Robert Mardock, chairman of the department, took a sabbatical at semester in order to study why people migrated west between 1865-1880. The new addition to the department is Gary Mormino, a Millikin alumnus. He graduated in 1 968 and has returned to teach history. Gary Mormino, instructor Dr Graham Proven, associate professor. With punch and cook- ies the education department open- ed their new office on the second floor of east LA. Although the of- fice was new, the returning teach- ers were familiar ones to educa- tion students, with the exception of Dr. McAfee. Dr. McAfee began his teaching career at Millikin by teaching secondary methods and guidance in schools. Associate professor of education. Dr. Richard E. Ferry, was appoint- ed to the Right to Read Advisory Council by the Superintendent of the Macon County Educational Service Region. Dr. Ferry also served on a School Approval Eva- luation team and was one of the three persons from throughout the state to evaluate the Bloomington area reading program. Clyde Browning, associate professor. Dr. Richard Ferry, associate professor. 199 Dr. Arthur Hopper. Chairnnan, associate professor of theatre arts. The first forensic organi- zation on the Millikin campus in five years was sponsored by the De- partment of Communications and Theatre Arts. The forensics team competed in meets at Ball State, University of Wisconsin, Bradley, and Greenville College. Meets fea- tured debate, as well as individual events of extemporaneous speak- ing, after dinner speaking, poetry interpretation, and dramatic duo. 1 974-1 975 was a very good year for theatre arts. Under the direc- tion of Dr. Richard Hossalla, Milli- kin was hit with the musical comedy " Music Man " ; Showcase Theatre ' s production of " The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the- Moon Marigolds " which was se- lected as the Illinois alternate for the American College Theatre Fes- tival in Milwaukee; a revue of mus- ical selections from the hit musical ' Jacques Brel is Alive and Well in Paris " ; " Arms and the Man " , " Street Scene " , and " Marat Sade " . The year was a good one but ended on a sad note when it was learned that Dr. Hossalla had accepted a position as the Director of Theatre at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio. Dr Richard Hossalla, assistant professor. Dr. Stacy Myers, assistant professor. Keith Johnson, instructor. Highlights in- cluded of the 1 974-1 975 school year for the Foreign Lan- guage Department included .... Dr. Castaneda ' s special Spanish program for 1 00 local children A new method of teaching Ger- man, which permitted the student to attain a higher level of fluency in a shorter time .... Carol Ross received her Doc- tor ' s Degree in German Many Richland Community Col- lege students and alumni auditors elected to take language courses at Millikin. Mary Lauerman, instructor in French. Dr Concepcion Castaneda, associate pro- fessor of Spanistn. Dr. Carol Ross, instructor in German. Dr. Carol Paul, associate professor of Ger- k Dr. Henry Gromoll, Chairman, professor of psychology. What were psy- chology students doing in Scovill labs in 1 975? Why weren ' t they back in the psych annex? The answer was simple — they were using laboratory equipment to weigh out rat food for experiments with white rats. Students conducted many ex- periments throughout the year and many unsuspecting roomies were subjects of various tests. The tests were harmless; most of them dealt with memory, or lack of memory, as the case would be. A new face appeared this year . . . that of Daniel L. Roenker. Dr. Roenker, a graduate of Thomas Moore College and Kansas State University, came from Iowa State University where he held the posi- tion of assistant visiting professor. Dr. Gordon Forbes, associate professor. 202 Ralph Allen, Chairman, associate professor. Harriett Crannell, assistant professor. Most students did not have to take any P.E. courses at Millikin during their four year stay, but many elected to do so. Those were the P.E. majors, the P.T. majors, sophomore women who had been hit with sophomore " slump " in all the wrong places, and those who just wanted to get out and do something. The P.E. Department offered courses to interest just about everyone. Included were cycling, bowling, swimming, and the favo- rites — basketball, football, and con- ditioning. Carl Johansson, swimming cross country coach. 204 William Kreuger, associate professor. Dr. John Hall, assistant professor. Over the past few years the English Department has moved to expand and broaden the type of offerings presented by this section of the Humanities Division. For students desiring an interdis- ciplinary approach to their major, the English Department now in- cludes a full program, in coopera- tion with other departments, of courses in American Studies. In response to growing interests in journalism and publishing, new courses in journalism and mass media were offered, and plans have been made to expand this field of study. A variety of writing courses, for students interested in either creative writing or professional writing work, were taught by several members of the faculty. And an exciting course in Literature of the Film drew large numbers of students who saw a knowledge of the film media as useful in many professions. A full range of literature courses and courses in grammar and the history of language continued to prepare students for graduate school, teaching, and other careers. Dr. Brian Mihm, assistant professor. 206 C Richard Decker, Dean, School of Business and Industrial Manage- Nicholas Kargas. Chairman, assistant professor of accounting. William Chapman, assistant professor of occuunting. David Marshall, associate professor of accounting. 20S On February 28, Mr. Gaston, Dr. Rocke and sixteen students attended the annual meeting for college marketing stu- dents and staff sponsored by the St. Louis Chapter of the American Marketing Association. The meeting was held at Stauffer ' s Riverfront Inn at St. Louis. At the meeting Kathy Heck was awarded a plaque as Millikin ' s outstanding senior marketing student. Plaques are awarded annually by the St. Louis Chapter to one outstanding student from each of the par- ticipating schools. The committee of Millikin faculty and students who selected Kathy also nominated Chris Udell to re- ceive the Central Illinois American Marketing Award for Outstanding Senior Students at their spring meeting. Students in marketing research and mass communications classes worked with local business firms on specific problems affecting these firms. Dr. Rocke spent part of January in New Zealand studying Marketing Education. Jack Gaston, Chairman, associate professor. V Dr. Donald Rocke, associate professor. Joseph Puckett, assistant professor of economics. 209 The Division of Engineering and in- dustrial Management strove to pro- vide the organizational and educa- tional climate conducive for those young men and women who had the aptitude and perseverance to pursue a rigorous curriculum and who had an interest in applying knowledge of the humanities, sciences and technology toward the solution of problems afflicting mankind. Reliable data indicates that there will be at least 40,000 position openings for engineers every year for the next ten years, and the shortage of graduates will leave 5,000 positions unfilled In every one of those years. The placement percentage of the graduates from the Division of Engineering and Industrial Man- agement has essentially been 100% for the last several years. It is anticipated that by 1 980, fully 30% of those students graduating from the Division at Mlllikin Uni- versity will be female. ly FJoririor. assistant professor of industrial engineering. Marvin Klaven, Chairman, professor. Gail Olsen, associate professor. An " art " major on the Millikin campus could sometimes be recognized by the tell-tale clays stains on faded jeans or by the many projects displayed throughout the room. Dedicated art students spent many hours in Kirkland working on paintings, sketches, nail poundings, or in the pot shop " throwing " pots of all sizes and shapes. Efforts were rewarded and students ' works were exhibited in the Kirkland Art Gallery. The show included water colors, oil paintings, jewelry, and pottery. Many of the items were for sale, and most of them were sold. The show was a success judged by the number of students who came to see it. Instructor Rimas VisGir- das had his own ceramics exhibit in Kirkland early in the school year. The works were done in California during the summer of 1 974 and in the fail of 1 975. Rimas VisGirdas, instructor. Two main phases of the music program have been explored by Dr. Henderson and the faculty. They evaluated the present curriculum and investigated new professional areas, including a de- gree program in Music Theatre and one that might combine courses in Music with those offered in the School of Business and In- dustrial Management. The second area of immediate interest was in providing performances for the University Community in addition to the recitals and concerts in Kaeuper and Kirkland. They plann- ed to initiate a series of informal noon-time outdoor appearances by music faculty and students. Dr. Clayton W. Henderson, Dean, School of Music. 1974-75 marked new be- _ ■ ■ 91111111198 in the music education department. A degree program was established with a Bachelor of Music in instrumental music with jazz emphasis. In ad- dition to jazz performance, the degree work included courses in jazz theory, history, and training in doubling on second and third instruments besides the major in- strument. To give more practical preparation for student teaching, method courses for seniors will now include a large amount of observation and actual teaching experience in school music situations. Also, a new winter term course was offered, providing students an opportunity of working full-time for a month with a professional music teacher. Dr. Russell Tiede, Chairman. Department of Music Education and Church Music. Many recitals were given throughout the year by Applied Music students and faculty mem- bers. Some students and faculty members also per- formed in groups and orchestras. These activities en- tertained many people — even those who were not mu- sic majors. Besides spending many hours of long practice in the " conserve " , some enterprising students spent their Winter Term building a harpsichord, which is now in use. Jean Northrup, Chairman, Department of Applied Music. 213 Faculty members not appearing in this year ' s iVIillidek were: John Bailey Paul Buck Shelley Cordulak Dr. Byron Kerns Suzanne Greider Phyllis Hunt Gary Maaks Rhoda Pine Rebecca Rice Dr. Patricia Sandoval Sarah Eagan Diana Bach Steven Hurst Dr. Harold Blair Dr. Harry Tiebout Lester Mathieson Janet Camp Steve Cheaney Alma Shueler Michael Brannon T.J.
