The extent to which this edition of the Fides
serves to recall the glorious past of Milton College,
to indicate the flourishing present, and to reveal the
promising future will mark the success of this-
our attempt to relate the past to the present and
the present to the future.
QEhe quture of Wilton Qtullege
Whose past has been an inspiration to every stu-
dent, whose present is influencing the destiny of
each one of us, and whose future will be the hope
of generations to come, we dedicate this 1929
And, as the doors slowly swing back, and the
future gradually becomes the present, we see re-
vealed there before us that which we have hoped
for, that which we have longed for, and that which
is inevitable-a bigger and better Milton College.

History of Milton College
95.27.94 T was about eighty-five years ago that what is now Milton College came
kw t a?
:5 into this world. Established for the welfare and best interests of the
young people of the community, the school has passed through the stages
of select school, private academy, academy for the preparation teachers,
and now is one of the ranking colleges of the state.
The existence of this school has been made possible by generous sacrificing
on the part of a few individuals who have always been able to meet the needs of
the institution. The school at Milton has always existed for the good of the people
of this section and has become the Alma Mater of many hundreds of men and
women throughout the country, who look upon the days spent at Milton as among
the best and most significant of their lives.
The history of Milton College in itself: presents an interesting study. There
are many sources of material. Not all of these are in agreement in many of the
details, but each and every historian seems of the opinion that Milton has had
a wonderful past, and that much credit is due those who have made Milton Col-
lege and all that it is doing for the youth of today a possibility.
We have attempted to make this edition of the Fides truly representative of
the history of the College. Pictures and words will be found throughOut the pub-
lication which deal with the days of old. It is necessary at this point. then, only
to sum up the history of the College as a whole.
Settled in 1839
The Honorable Joseph Goodrich, sturdy pioneer of indomitable energy, New
England ancestry and Saxon family, emigrated from Western New York in the
early spring of 1839, and after thirty-four days of travel arrived, on March 4, at
what was then known as Prairie Du Lac, and now known as Milton. Here, with
his family, he built the first log cabin in Milton. At that time there was one log
house in Janesville and another one in what is now Fort Atkinson. Joseph Good-
rich welcomed all, and after staking out the large tract for the public park, gave
land to settlers. He was the first landlord, first merchant, first postmaster and
first town treasurer in Milton.
It was not long after the establishment of the community that the need for
an educational unit above the district school was felt. So, it was in 1844 that
Joseph Goodrich erected the first school building, which for about ten years, was
located near the northwest corner of the park, at a position just north of the present

railway track. It was a one-story affair with a cupola graced by four spires. There
was also a large sign, "Milton Academy," over the front entrance. The purpose
of the school was to accommodate the young people of the vicinity seeking higher
learning. About sixty shared the advantages during the Erst year.
For a year or so it was necessary to hold classes in private dwellings, and it
is said that the old barn-like structure shown in this section was used as Milton
Academy for a period of two years. This fact is evidence enough of the spirit
that dominated the lives of those who are responsible for the establishment and
continuance of the institution at Milton. The fact that there was no place to
meet was a minor matter. The education of the young must go on at any cost.
Further indication of this is furnished when we realize that in 1855 a new
brick building was completed which had dimensions 44 by 40 and a height of three
stories. This was erected at a cost of over $5,000 on property donated by Joseph
Goodrich, and was paid for by the stockholders of Milton Academy. It is said
that this building at that time was second to no other educational institution in the
state. The building was what is now the front portion of the Main Hall.
It seems that the First teacher in the little old Academy was the Rev. Bethuel
C. Church, who had for eight years been principal of a private school at Alfred,
N. Y., which afterward became Alfred University. Then the Rev. 3. S. Becknell

taught for two years until 1848, when WYisconsin was admitted to the Union. and
the school was Chartered as Du Lac Academy. In 1848. a Mr. Prindle became
principal, but was relieved after one term by Jonathan Allen, who was later presi-
dent of Alfred University. The Rev. A. W. Coon was principal in 1849. Colonel
George R. Clarke was in charge in 1851, and for the next seven years the sehool
was under the jurisdiction of Ambrose C. Spicer and his wife, Susanna M. Spicer.
As education became more and more widespread in this section the need for
efficient teachers became more and more evident. The result was that M ilton came
in 1854 to take the preparation of teachers as its chief aim. A scarcity of rooms
about the town at this time led to the erection of the Ladies' Hall in 1857 at a
cost of over $5,000. This building was later named Goodrich Hall, because of the
part that Joseph Goodrich and his relatives had played in financing the construc-
tion. This was used for a time for both men and women, but a few years
later Principal W. C. XVhitford, who had been called to take charge of the school
in 1858, together with his brother. Albert VVhitford, Financed the purchase of an
old Houring mill for the sum of $400 and in 1863 this was converted into a Gentle
men,s Hall. It was situated at a point almost directly across College Street from
Goodrich Hall. Later. two floors of this building were converted into a gymnasium
for the use of students. I
As has been already mentioned, W illiam C. VVhitford was called to take
over the principalship of Milton Academy in the year 1858. t'The name was
changed to Milton about 1854a. Mr. VVhitford was at that time pastor of the
Seventh Day Baptist Church of Milton. After a year spent with the Academy
as its head, Mr. VVhitford resigned his pastorate and for forty-four years was
principal of the Academy 0r president of Milton College. With the exception of
time spent as a member of the state legislature and as State Superintendent of
Public Instruction, President VVhitford gave his all for the institution until his
death in 1902.
Attempting to follow the course of events as chronologically as possible, we
find that in the years 1861 to 1865 Milton Academy was extremely well represented
in the armies of the Union. Students were chilled in Chapel and on the Campus.
Three hundred and twelve students and graduates entered the army, formed two
full companies and parts of three others. FOrty-three fell either by bullet or by
disease. Sixty-nine were commissioned officers, ranging from second lieutenant to
Becomes College in 1867
On March 13, 1867, a charter was secured from the state legislature which
established the school at Milton as Milton College. The period since that time
is, of course, the period that will he of interest to the majority of present readers,
although it is essential that the growth and progress before the establishment of
the College proper be given its due regard.

In 1844, the property of the school was worth about $400. XYhen the insti-
tution was established as a college the property was valued at $29,675, with a debt
With this amount of property which included the three buildingsaMain
Hall, Goodrich Hall and Gent's Halleand their equipment, Milton College started
on its career as an institution of higher learning to compete favorably with every
other college in the State of Wisconsin. We find during these years such instruc-
tors and supporters of Milton College as Prof. Albert VVhitford, father of Presi-
dent Alfred E. VVhitford, his wife, Mrs. Chloe C. VVhitford, S. S. Rockwood,
Edward Searing, Nathan C. Twining, Mrs. A. M. Fenner, Miss Mary F. Bailey,
Mrs. Emma Utter, Forrest M. Babcock, Mrs. Ruth E. VVhitford, Jairus M. Still-
man, Rev. E. M. Dunn, Walter D. Thomas, Edwin Shaw, Ludwig Kumlien. Rev.
Lewis A. Platts, Mrs. Anna S. Crandall, Mrs. Emily A. Platts, Agnes Bahcock,
May B. Smith, Eleanor M. Brown, Belle R. Walker, Alfred E. VVhitford, Miss
Susan B. Davis and the Rev. William C. Daland. Dr. Thomas R. Williams was
acting-president for a short period during part of the time that President XV. C.
Whitford was State Superintendent of Public instruction.
This brings us now to the beginning of a new century. It was at about that
time that President W. C. VVhitford began his attempt to convince the friends of
Milton College that a new building to house the science departments of the College
was essential to the welfare of the institution. President W hitford, however, did
not live to see the start of the new building. His death occurred on May 20,

In 1901, the property owned by the College was divided into real estate,
$23,062.72; apparatus, $1,215.64; cabinets, $2,150.00; libraries, $8,658.34; endow-
ments, $83,244.66; total $118,244.66. Of the endowment fund $70,000 had been
donated by George H. Babcock of Plainfield, N. J. Of this sum, $20,000 gave
birth to the endowment fund and $50,000 was left to the College as a bequest.
Immediately following the death of President W. C. VVhitford, a movement was
set on foot for the erection of a Science Hall as a fltting memorial to a man who
had given nearly half of a century to Milton College. Accordingly, the campaign
was initiated and the cornerstone was laid at Commencement time, in June, 1904.
The cost of the building was something slightly less than $30,000. Mrs. George H.
Babcock gave $5,000 toward equipment and through the influence of Dr. James
Mills of Janesville the Andrew Carnegie estate gave $6,500 more. The work
was finished in 1906. The endowment of the College in this year amounted to
In the year 1900, a movement was begun toward the improvement of the
Gentlemen's Hall for use as a gymnasium. This sufficed for that purpose for
a time, but in 1909, the graduating class started a fund for the erection of a new
gymnasium by donating $1,000 in that direction. The cost was about $20,000 for
the gymnasium built at that time, which is still in use. The building was opened
at Commencement, June 22, 1911.

President Daland Comes
The Rev. William C. Daland was called in 1902 to take charge of the College
as its president after the death of President William C. XVhitford. At this time
the trustees purchased all the south part of the present Campus, including the house
which is at present known as the Studio. It was here that President Daland and
his family made their home while Dr. Daland was head of the College. Prior to
that time the president of the College, W. C. Whitford, had lived in the home
across Columbus Avenue from the present Campus and now known as the Burden
Dr. Daland remained as president of the institution until his death on June
21, 1921, when the oHice was taken over by Acting-President Alfred E. VVhitford,
who two years later came to be president of the College.
Now we have arrived at the present; we have traced the building of Milton
College from the time it consisted of a little one-story structure to the present insti-
tution with its five buildings. XV e have indicated something of the sacrifice 0n the
part of the friends of Milton that has been necessary that the College might prosper
and progress. And we have followed the executives and a few of the chief sup-
porters 0f the College, down through the eighty-five years of the schooYs existence.
In short, we have viewed hrieHy the material elements that have gone to make
Milton College what it is today. There remains, then but to glance at the lives
of a few of the more prominent spirits that have given life and continuation t0
the Milton College of the past, whose works are influencing the present and whose
memory will continue to have a bearing, even upon the future.
From among the long list of persons whose lives have played a Vital part in
the establishment and growth of Milton College as an educational institution, we
choose but two for special mention. These two are the former college presidents,
William C. Whitford and William C. Daland, who were the only permanent presi-
dents the institution had before President Alfred E. thitford took up the work.
President W. C. VVhitford served the Academy and the College from 1858 to 1902
as head of the school, and it was during these forty-four years that the College
came to be known throughout the state. Teachers were the principal product of
the school, and in general this period was indeed a nourishing one as far as Milton
College was concerned.
William C. Whitford
William C. Whitford was a graduate of DeRuyter Institute and Union Col-
lege. He completed his studies at the Union Theological Seminary in 1856 in
New York City. In 1858, after having been a teacher in the Academy in the
early fifties, he was put in charge as principal and remained as president of the
College until his death in 1902. During the period of his work at Milton, he was
one year member of the State Legislature and for four years he was Superintendent
of Public Instruction in Wisconsin and for nine years occupied a chair on the
board of regents of normal schools in this state.

Hundreds of students have come to Milton and have left again with the in-
fluence of llThe Elder" indelibly impressed upon them. They will recall incidents
of their stay at Milton which are not permitted to those of us here at present,
because we were not granted the association of this man who has had such an
inHuence upon M ilton College.
William C. Daland
William Clifton Daland was born in New York City, October 25, 1860. He
graduated with honors in 1879 from the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute, followed
music for five years, was organist of a church in Brooklyn. decided to enter
the ministry and was graduated from the Union Theological Seminary in New
York in 1883. Alfred University conferred the degree of Master of Arts upon
him, and he received his D.D. from Milton College in 1896 and was given the
same degree at Alfred in 1903. He was the pastor of several churches, and was
called to Milton College as its president in 1902. In this office he continued to
sacrifice for and to help build Milton College until his death in 1921.
The records tell us that Dr. Daland was a man who could be counted on in
every pinch. He had learning, versatility, the ability to lead, and in fact everything
that is essential to one who is directing the footsteps of students. During his stay
at Milton, the VVhitford Memorial Hall and the gymnasium were erected, new
things appeared here and there, new organizations became a part of the Campus
life and in general things were on the move. But throughout it all, throughout
all these material changes, the spirit of President Daland, always encouraging
students to go forward, is now looked back upon by hundreds of men and women
as one of the greatest factors inHuencing their lives.
Other Influential Persons
Besides these two presidents of the College there have been others who have
given much for the institution. Some of the more familiar names are those of
Albert Whitford, who was connected with Milton except for six years from 1854
to the time of his retirement in 1911; Jairus M. Stillman, who did so much to
establish Miltonls reputation in the field of music; Walter D. Thomas. who first
began to serve the college in 1884 and who is still connected with the faculty;
Edwin Shaw, who first came to teach in 1890 and who was for a time acting-
president of the College; Ludwig Kumlien, who from 1891 to 1902 was the head
of the Natural History and Physiology department; Mrs. Anna S. Crandall, who
began to teach German in 1900, and who is still connected with the faculty; and
Alfred E. Whitford, who became an instructor in the College in 1901, and who
now is president of the College.
There are others and many of them, but the majority are mentioned in various
sections throughout the book, thus making total enumeration here unnecessary: It
is hoped that this, and other accounts to he found in this edition of the Eldes,
of the history of Milton College will not only recall to the minds of alumm and
former students events of the days gone by, but will also serve as a stimulant t0
appreciation on the part of present day students of the glories of the past.

Dr. Clarence D. Royse, D.D.
57f LHCLARISNCE DILLE ROYSE was horn on August 20, 1863, at
' Ixingwood, IV. Va. In 1885 he was admitted to the Methodist ministry.
His work in the ministry took him into communities in Indiana. Iowa and
South Dakota, and he rose to a position of district superintendent. In
1921. he was among those sent to Armenia in connection with the Near East
About 1910, he became engaged in financial canvassing for Churches, colleges.
and hospitals. At the time of his death he had directed 188 campaigns for money
for Christian enterprises and had put every one of them over. He failed not once;
it is an enviable record. He had a genius for raising money.
In January, 1926, he became connected with Milton College, when he was
appointed vice-president and made director of the Development Campaign for'
$500,000. Through his leadership and indomitable optimism the Milton-Milton
Junction Drive for $100,000 in April and May of 1927 netted $102,000 in pledges.
During the same summer Battle Creek raised $25,000 under his direction.
XVhen the term of his contract expired and it became apparent to everyone
that a much longer period would he required to complete the task of raising the
entire $500,000. he generously Offered to give a portion of his time for an indefinite
period to raise the whole amount.
Because of his efforts for Milton College in preparation for the Janesville
drive, his heart began to fail and he had not been entirely well since that time. He
was on the Campus last Commencement and was awarded the degree of Doctor
of Divinity at that time.
In November, 1928. he started east with President A. E. VVhitford, but was
forced to return to his home in Rockville, Ind.. because of illness. Just as he
again felt conEdent of better health. he died suddenly on Feb. 11, 1929, of heart
President A. Ii. W'hitford's tribute to Dr. Royse follows:
IIDr. Royse's outstanding qualities were his devotion to duty, his tireless
energy in promoting the cause which he was serving, and his contagious optimism
in a difficult task. He had positive convictions, and while he was tolerant of others
views and tactful in presenting his own, still he was not afraid to take a stand on
any public question. He also had a great respect for the convictions of others
which were different from his own.
IIIt was his hahit never to spare himself in any task. Since his illness three
years ago he always felt apologetic when it was necessary for him to stop and rest.
Indeed many times he overtaxed his strength because he was Optimistic about his
HDr.R0yse believed thoroughly in the mission and the future of. Milton as a
Christian College. He enjoyed being on the Campus and associating wlth the
students. He was determined to do his utmost in spite of his infirmities to put
Milton on a solid Financial footing. He expected to succeed in this. Indeed,. since
the first eighteen months of his service to Milton College he has given himself
without salary for the promotion of our development fund. Those of us who were
closely associated with him admired and respected him. He was a congenial com-
panion and a loyal friend?

It is necessary to remember, when thinking of the old Milton College, that
in the days before 1900 there was only one building which contained any class
rooms. This was the Main Building. The Science Hall was not yet erected.
So it was that the science classes, as well as all other classes, had to be held in
the Main Hall. The Chapel, of course, was located just as it is today, in the fore-
part of the second story. The old oil lamps which hung from the ceiling were
used for lighting purposes in those days, and the students used benches for seats.
A few of these are still to be found in use today.
The Babcock and the Crandall Rooms looked then about as they do today,
except that the Crandall Room was the Zoological Department of the College, and
hence housed the collection of stuHed animals and other equipment necessary to
On the first floor, the Davis Room has not been much changed by the years,
except that there are different chairs there now, and all of the old organs have
been removed. Across the hall in the old days, the Polly Goodrich Room was
located. For many years, this served as the home of the Milton College Library.
It is now the general college office, and even today there are to be found there

languages and literature playing prominent parts in the list of subjects taught.
The Chemistry Department was located, in the days before 1900. down in
the basement of the Main Hall, in what is now the Y. TV. C. A. room.
That the students and faculty in those days were cramped for room even
more than they are at the present time is evident. And that is probably one Of
the reasons why the Archeological Department was located in the XV. P. Clarke
Drug Store. This display was later moved to the College, and now resides in the
It is interesting to note the changes that have been brought about by the
passage of time. The most abrupt change was brought by the erection of the
present Science Hall, when all science equipment was moved out of the Main Hall,
as was also the library. Thus the rooms that had previously been occupied by these
departments were given over for use as class and recitation rooms. The result has
been that those subjects which are of a literary, philosophical, or historical nature
are for the most part taught in the Main Hall. while Science reigns supreme in the
Whitford Memorial Hall.

The origin and development of the tongues of the world and the literature which
they embody is an interesting and profitable study, as the members of this group have
foreseen. Naomi Marks and Marian Brown have taken up the study of French, probably
the clearest and most precise of modern languages, which opens up one of the world,s
greatest literatures. Ruby Maas, Lura Burdick, and Mildred Robbins pursued English,
in which literature there are masterpieces in every branch of writing-in the essay, the
drama, the novel, in the epic and in the lyric poetry. Echo Van Horn was greatly inter-
ested in Latin and the literature of the ancient Romans. There is much charm to the
old manuscripts which is lost to a reader of translation.

Social Science and Philosophy
Social Science, Philosophy, and History have been the particular interests of the
students in this group. They feel that the world of human society, with its varied appeals
to the emotionsethe world which we feel with our hearts and our imaginationseis most
interesting, and they stand in awe before some of the manifestations of elemental force
which the infinite veils from their knowledge.
These subjects afford a graciousness of mind suggested by the term of liberal
culture, and they enable one to make himself more powerful and comprehensive. Such
is probably the belief of those who have been classed in the group above, for they have
been very active along these lines.

Science, which is probably the widest and undeniably the most important Fleld of
study in the range of inquiry, has offered the above group a field for their study. Students
in science have considerable practice in accurate and logical thinking. These people,
then, have acquired the ability to think correctly and such an ability will he of inestimable
value throughout their whole lives, no matter what the held of their activity may be.
B. K. Wells, T. L. Burdick, and P. M. Loofboro chose Biology as their special
work; C. W. Buending devoted his efforts to the study of Physics. Edward Buyama
selected the field of Chemistry, and R. E. Wells chose the realm of MathematiCS.

Class of 1928
CW HE class of '28 is distinguished from all classes of Milton College in that
Z ,, it has just twenty-eight members. Though in the four years we decreased
5 g mnsiderably in number, from sixty to twentyeeight, we began as the
a largest class in the history of Milton College 11p to that time. Needless
to say our spirit decreased not at all!
Full of pep and enthusiasm. not lacking wit and intelligence, as evidenced by
the mental ability tests administered to us as Freshmen, we organized our powers
with M aurice Sayre at the head. Basketball tournaments, debating, and track pro-
vided opportunities for us to show we were able extra-curricularly as well as curri-
cularly, and thus our reputation was established.
We had found it real sport to wear green caps, and perhaps this accounts for
our losing to the Freshmen in the Frosh-Soph scrap in the fall of ,25. This time,
organized with Clare Marquette as president, we carried off the class basketball
laurels again, piled up honors in oratory, and really made the orange and black quite
indispensable to college life.
Soon came the third lap, and as Richard Wells took the leadership, we stood
ready for anything. Bowersl Lake was again the scene for our reunion and organ-
ization, thus hallowing it to '28ers. The Seniors had a line feed at our expense,
and were amply repaid for their work the preceding year. The girls still held
class basketball honors, and later succeeded in holding that honor throughout their
college course. All indications pointed to a great year for the class as Seniors.
There are two sides to the question of being a Senior, however. It's great to
haveradded prestige, but not as great if one is loathe to leave the spot where the
happiest years of his life have been spent. Ethics class, practice teaching, senior
dinners, back seats in Chapel all make the last year one never to be forgotten. There
were in our midst, debaters, orators, musicians, athletes, and organizers of all types,
but before long we found ourselves suddenly transformed to a black-robed alumni.
Clare Marquette. as president of the class a second time, soon disposed of the
weighty matters and problems common to all Senior classes. Money matters were
carefully attended to by Clarence Buending, Mildred Robbins carried on our corre-
spondence, and thus passed our last year. Caps and gowns disappeared according to
tradition, due to the efforts of the gown-coveting Juniors. But history repeated
itself as the last week of Chapel took on its usual Commencement appearance.
The much-loved song nIt Is the College that I Call My Own" was first sung
when we were Freshmen. We are proud to have been in school during the launch-
ing of the Endowment campaign, thus having opportunity to show in a material
way our regard for our Alma Mater. Commencement contained more than the
usual thrill. Within the shrines 0f the hearts of the '28ers sacred memories exist
and will continue to exist for all time.
Some day we'll wander back again
To the chapel on the hill,
Behold the ivy covered walls,
The belfry tow'ring still;
well muse on all the bygone days,
The friends we used to know.
W'elll laugh and sing till echoes ring,
As in the long ago.

The members of this particular group have devoted their efforts to the study and
appreciation of foreign languages, both classic and modern. Rosalia Marquart, Ethlyn
Sayre, Grace Loofbourrow, and Helen Ring, have recognized the language and literature
of ancient Rome as one of the fundamental parts of a truly liberal education and have
pursued its study. They, who have learned to read Virgil and Horace, the backbone of
the old curriculum, possess an intellectual heritage of the greatest value.
Wilma Hall, Conrad Kneip, Eunice Thomas, and Ethlyn Sayre, by their study of
French, have acquired a foundation knowledge of the language and an ability to read and
appreciate the masterpieces of French literature. Through the drill provided them in
classes they are enabled, to some degree, to converse in the foreign tongue.

King Sport reigns supreme in the class of y29. In fact, he has held sway since the
establishment of the class four years ago, and has made this class exceedingly prominent
throughout its whole career. The members of the above group have been the outstanding
representatives on the football, basketball, baseball, track and tennis teams.
Since the start of the class in !25, there has been no team on which one or more of
these men have not played. They have given their loyal support and whole-hearted
effort to their teams and Alma Mater. They have worked untiringly for success. As a
result, they have gained in a physical way from these athletic contests what the other
departments have given them in a mental way.

History and English
Someone has said, "The present is, for each individual, so much of human ex-
perience as he may at any moment revive within himself. " It has been the aim of this
group of students to attain as rich a fund of human experience as possible, and thus to
become intelligent and progressive judges of the present by pursuing the studies of
History and Literature.
This does not mean howev or that thcx have given their time and thought wholly
to these courses. Marguerite Hunt has been intenselv interested in History and English,
but she has also spent much of her time in the mastery of the French language. Dorothy
Whitford and Mary Clement have devoted their greatest energies to English and Litera-
ture. The remaining four have selected History as their favorite line of study.

plants, the lower animals and man have the greatest interest. Paul Allen and Russell
Jacobson derive great pleasure from knowing the laws underlying the physical phenome
ena encountered continually in daily life and in thus being able to explain them.
The other two members of the group haye taken up the study of Mathematics,
which provides the foundation for all the other scxences and furnishes a basis upon which
nearly every other line of activity finds it necessary to rest.

Class of 1929
- M OUR years ago we came to this beautiful campus from the XVest, from
tr the North, from the South. and the East, even as far as China. After be-
ginning the year like all green Frosh. and after downing the Soph,s at
Lake Koshkonong, we chose Kenneth W estby as our president.
Returning in 1926 we upheld our honor by again showing our athletic skill
to equal that of the previous year. During the college endowment campaign, many
of the class gave pledges amounting to $2,350. the highest of any class in the college.
Laurence Bevens, a tried athlete, was made president. It was in this year that
Homer DeLong brought to our class its first honor, when he was awarded the
Rolland Sayre medal.
As Juniors we were a peppy bunch. although our numbers were depleted by
half. Now, we began to realize our responsibilities to our Alma Mater. Milo
Meyer, 3. true Milton student, was elected to head our ranks and he brought us
great honor by being a recipient of the Rolland Sayre medal. Further laurels were
added this year when Paul Allen became editor-in-chief of the Carmina and he
and his corps of able helpers published the first Milton College song book.
Soon we shall bid gOOd-bye t0 Hour school" with many pleasant memories and
regrets. Although we are a small class. we count it a privilege to have known the
largest Freshman Class to enter Milton College in recent years.
Helen Ring is piloting our Senior class over the last few miles of the journey.
Seven of our men have helped win the homecoming games, every one of which has
been a Victory since the first, played when we were Freshmen. The class has been
well represented in all other branches of athletics. A good number have taken
part in Treble Clef and Glee Club work. We have contributed our share to the
growth of lyceums, debating, oratory, dramatics, and other Milton College enter-
And such have been the four happy years of our connection with Milton
College. They have been packed full of activity and endeavor. and it is indeed with
a feeling of loss and regret that we lay down the banner of support and loyalty
it has been our privilege to bear. where it may readily be picked up and carried for-
ward by the classes to come. We can best express our loyalty to Milton in the
words of a classmate:
llBe we Freshmen, Sophs. Juniors, 01' Seniors so proud
Whether singly or doubly 0r yet in a crowd,
Welll root for the college; well each stand in line,
were all for Dear Milton, we of old Twenty Nine?

Class of 1930
HAT have we here? Here we have the Class of 30. The ranks are some-
what thinned, its true, but those of us who remain feel ourselves veterans
of the first order. We have lived through Math, Public Speaking, and
Biology, and have been promoted to orations. lVe are hopeful and even
confident that there may be found within our number, material worthy to be trans-
formed by some spark of divine genius tand who more competent than our faculty
into magnificent Seniors. Come what mayeat least we are philosophers.
As Freshmen, we pulled the customary boners and although we were defeated
by the Sophomores in the class games and were forced to wear that badge of ser-
vility, the green cap, we are quite sure our true nobility of character showed through.
Our Class oilicers were: Elston Loofboro, president; Dorothy Burdick, vice-
president; Bernice Maxson, secretary; Hugh Stewart, treasurer.
W hen we were Sophomores we covered ourselves with glory by defeating the
powerful Freshmen. And to show them. that we meant them'no ill, that it was
simply a necessary policy of discipline, we gave them a party in the gymnasium.
Our officers of this year were: President, Hugh Stewart; vice-president, Roberta
Wells; secretary, Loyal Todd; treasurer, Verone Marquette. Rexford Watson
was chosen to fill the last office for the second semester.
And here we are, better if not biggere-Juniors. We are this year, as well as
the past two years well represented in music, athletics, debating. dramatics, and other
school activities. We have Chosen to act as our executives, Kenneth B. Davis, Ila
Johanson, and Loyal Todd. You are accustomed to seeing us around the campus
now and we hope you like us, because we have only one more year to stay. In the
space of a years time we shall be staid and dignifled, but we shall never forget our
happy years as undergraduates.
And now after all is said and done, and we look back over our past deeds, we
Find that we have not fared so badly. Mistakes have been made, but they have only
taught us to enjoy our successes more. And so now as we look forward to the
new yearethe last yearewe see only the bright side of things, welcoming us to
a happy and inspiring close to our college days.

Alice Stillman entered College in the fall of 1927. Although her part in
the activities of the College was not large, she was a diligent and worthy
student, ambitious, and eager to get an education. She died March 17, 1929,
at Mercy Hospital, Janesville, where she had undergone an Operation for
appendicitis three weeks before.

men. We saw at once that we were to be distinguished in variety, for
variety is the spice of life, and we enjoy life. The contest at Charley
Bluff was lost. W'e secretly were glad, for this gave us the opportunity
to wear those longed-for green caps. When football season opened most of our
men were seen on the held. They also took the honors in the interclass basketball
tournament. The girls took second place at the same time. We soon made known
our ability in scholarship, forensics, dramatics, music and sportsmanship.
Soon after our arrival on the Campus we assembled and elected our officers.
With great wisdom this was accomplished, for XValter Sayre was selected as presi-
dent, to guide us through the difficulties of the oncoming year. The Green Issue
of the Review was successfully administered with Edward Ellis as editor.
During the course of the year only a few found the struggle too dillicult and

Jaehnke took up the duties of president. Harold Hull assisted as vice-president and
V ivian Lovaas as secretary and treasurer. Dorothy W inch took over the latter
Office during the second semester. Although our number had decreased, we
kept our original standard for everyone took part in a variety of activities. The
lyceums found support among our number, Y. M. and Y. XV. discovered our willing-
ness to help. The Review and Fides needed us. Dramatics also called members
of our class into service.
On the whole, the second year of our stay at Milton College has been one of
industry and activity as also was the First year and as also will be the two years
yet remaining of our college life.
And now we have looked into the past. We are nearly half way through.
What the future will bring we cannot say definitely, but no matter what befalls us
it is our aim in the future, as it has been in the past, to he willing and loyal sup-

Class of 1932
XVhen we first came to this Campus,
Freshmen we, as green as grass!
1.? HE class of 1932 received its first impressions of Milton and the Campus
in the fall of 1928, When a group of eighty-five students enrolled. This
fact made this class unique in that it was the largest class of Freshmen
to enroll in the recent history of the institution. In many other ways
than in numbers, however, is this incoming class outstanding. it has been well
represented in athletics, musical organizations. and has been active in the social
line. Freshmen have turned out in large numbers to the various receptions. inter-
class parties, lyceum programs, college functions and activities.
The first college days brought the strife of the "Class scrap" which organized
the class into one solid body. Although it was never definitely decided, we shall
always believe that the Freshmen tied the Sophomores in the annual games and
contests at the All-College Day picnic.
Four members of the class, 0. W. Babcock, Evan Chambers, J. A. Stokstad,
and G. D. Wixom, received the official ffM" in recognition of their work in foot-
ball; and a few of the Freshmen were to be found on the basketball squad.
Following the usual custom the F reshmen edited and published the Green Issue
of the Milton College Review. For the first time in the history of the Review
the Frosh staff produced a six-page issue. which was considered a very successful
The first year has now nearly reached its close and the members of the class
of 1932 are privileged to look forward into the future. The class started out as
the largest in Miltonls history. It is to be hoped that such it will remain through-
out. Records in other lines also have been estalished during the first year, which
the members will endeavor to sustain and reinforce as the next three years go
The class 0f 32 has nothing to regret and everything to which to look for-
ward. Its members are more fortunate than those of sister classes, for they have
three more years of college life left to them. And there is no doubt that in the
future as during the past year, these latest additions to the Milton Student Body
will ever be loyal and true to the Brown and the Blue. i

The Student Body
The Students of Milton College have always been organized, but it is a com-
paratively recent action which formed the familiar phraseittThe Milton Follege
111 the earlier days, there were separate organizations for the dif-
ferent needs. There was the Athletic Association, composed of all the students
in the institution. The Oratorical Association composed of the members of the
four lyceums, the Alumni Association, the Christian Association and others. In
addition, the Milton Forward Movement was organized in 1913. of which all stu-
dents and faculty members were active members.
At a meeting of the students of the College. in November 1921, it was voted
to organize the Student Body of Milton College. This organization was to consist
of the entire Student Body, and take up the work of the Athletic, and triratorical
Associations and the Forward Movement.
The Student Body has continued under practically the same organization, with
changes in constitution-until this present year.
At two different times has the Student Body sent its president to the annual
meeting of the National Federation of Students. This year the president, M ilo G.
Meyer, was sent. and as a result of discussion and investigation there, he returned
with a proposition for a revised organization of the Student Body, namely, an
adapted form of Student Council.
This plan was duly prepared and discussedeand after much thought and
revision, has been adopted by the Student Body. It went into effect, at the begin-
ning of the second semester. The present council consists of fifteen members, and
relieves the Chapel exercises of the continual small business matters that heretofore
were necessary in a Student Body meeting. It works, also, through the medium
of the Review, and it is expected that the new plan will prove efficient and for the
best interests of the students.

Bright Iduna, Maid immortal!
Standing at Valhallals portal,
In her basket has rich store
Of rose apples, gilded oler.
In the olden days when gods and goddesses walked the earth, the beautiful
Idun lived. She had in her possession a treasure which the gods prized above all
other things in Asgard. This was the magic fruit of Idun, kept by the goddess
in a golden casket and given to the gods to keep them forever young and fair. W ith-
out these apples, all their powers could not have kept them from getting old like
the meanest of mortals. Without the apples 0f Idun, Asgard itself would have
lost its charm; for what would heaven be without youth and beauty forever shining
So the legend comes down to modern day. and Idun is still worshipped as the
goddess of youth and immortality. Her apples still bring charm and beauty to those
who come to worship at her shrine.
In the days before the Civil War, Milton College was still Milton Academy.
It was in this Academy in the year of 1854 that the girls formed a society, called
the Ladies, Literary Club. Our grandmothers, who were sweet and demure, became
bold enough in these meetings to recite, sing, and debate.

In 1867, Milton Academy became Milton College. The College at that time
was largely made up of Norwegian students, and these girls were the ones who
changed the Ladies Literary Society into the Iduna Lyceum.
The name was undoubtedly chosen by a Norwegian girl who loved the legends
of her own country, for Idun is one of the favorite Scandinavian goddesses. The
apple and apple blossom. that are symbols of Idun, were chosen as emblems by the
Since then, many maids who have come to Milton have learned to love this same
goddess and a large proportion of the girls who have attended Milton can proudly
boast of having been Idunas.
Iduna has prospered exceptionally well the last two years in Milton, for large
numbers of the new girls have hastened to pledge themselves to the lyceum that
pays tribute to the beautiful goddess of immortality.
The new girls who joined Iduna in 1927-28 were initiated into the organization
at a banquet held in the Iduna room. The Idunas were taken into fairyland by
means of the playlet, llAlice in VVOhderland.H
The banquet held this year was on a large scale. because of the unusually large
number of new girls. It was a sumptuous banquet and the room was beautifully
decorated while the tables were set to form the letter I. At this time the play-
masque llPomona" was given with its graceful dances and beautiful goddesses.
Last June, in the presentation of the Tempest, Idnnas again shone. when the
only two female parts were given to Itlunas.
Once more a follower of ldun was, this year, successful in the lnter-Lyceum

Years ago, there appeared upon Milton's campus a little bluebird. It came
early in the year, long before the snow had melted, and its message of happiness
lured some of the college girls away from the hitherto indulged Idun. These girls
learned to love the bluebird so deeply that they decided to form a band in its
This band of girls, nine in number, with Ruth Stillman as president, organized
December 20, 1909, the lyeeum since known as the Miltonian Lyceum of Milton
The first ofhcial meeting, January 8, 1910. was held in the Physics recitation
room, at which time a constitution was adopted, and the motto "Uhung macht den
MeistertI was chosen.
On January 22, 1910. the First literary program was given. Soon the girls
began selling Milton College stationery to raise money for expenses. By June, the
society doubled its membership.
Progress has been fairly steady ever since. In 1912, the Miltonians gave their
first formal banquet for the new members. In 1913, they bought a piano. In
1916, they claimed a room for themselves and decorated it. In 1923, they bought
chairs and a screen. And in 1927, they redecorated the room.
Throughout the nineteen years since Miltonian was organized, its girls have
played an active part in the life of the college. Miltonian girls have done much
to help build up the music standards. Out of nineteen oratorical contests, M iltonian

girls have won twelve firsts and five: seconds. Miltonian girls have also played
many outstanding roles in Shakespearean productions. In fact, Miltonians have ever
given their very best for Milton College.
Through the efforts of several members of the lyceum and many alumni, a
list of old Miltonians and their addresses has been brought to date.
As always, Miltonian girls featured prominently in college activities. For the
last two years, an average of two-thirds of the Treble Clef has been Miltonian.
Both of the soloists in "The Rose Maiden" were Miltonians. And the lyceum has
been well represented in dramatic work on the Campus. Also, a Miltonian is editor
of the Review, an honor which no woman has held for many years. Within the
last two years, nine Miltonians have married.
Miltonian girls, wherever they are, will always be noted for their activity,
Cheerfulness. and good will.
iiBe true to me, Miltonian, to me."
School began with a hang in 1927. Thirteen new girls joined the Lyceum,
and were royally entertained at a banquet in the Philo Room.
During Christmas vacation, the Miltonians, who were left in town, labored
diligently, removing calcimine from the walls and applying fresh paint where they
could. The floor was varnished and waxed. Then nMa" Strassburg gave the
Lyceum a little cage and bluebird to put in the fresh room.
The eighteenth birthday was celebrated in January with an interesting pro-
gram. Many alumni were back to attend the party and many more, who could
not attend, sent money to help in. redecorating the room.
In 1928, the banquet, whose scene was Eskimo land, proved that Miltonians
can fit into any clime without dampening their spirits.
The past two years have been among the most prosperous ever experienced by
the girls of Miltonian.

The birth-date of the Urophilian Lyceum is lost in obscurity. .It is only known
that in the decade before the Civil War, a debating society existed in the Academy.
It went under the name of mfhe Senate, and its members represented states. From
this body, the Orophilian Lyceum emerged sometime before 1858.
In 1861, the Civil War came and all but three of the members went to pre-
serve the Union. Meetings were discontinued and the Orophilians met only about
the Union campflres. In March, 1866, those who came back met again and reor-
ganized the society. On February 17, 1869, it was incorporated by an act of the
Wisconsin Legislature as the Orophilian Lyceum. Its object was 8the moral and
intellectual improvement of its members?
In these years, the Davis Room of the Chapel Hall was the Oro Room, and
it was not until the fall of 1906 that the present quarters were occupied. Debates
monopolized the programs; lectures were frequent. Twice a year public. programs
were given and joint sessions with the other societies were not seldom. Each
year in March, at the end of the winter term, the Oros held an anniversary supper,
the precursor of the present banquet. A journal, The Oro Standard, was pub-
lished at intervals. Up to 1892 or so, the Oros, with the other two societies, main-
tained a library. That was before the days of. a college library.

In 1912, the Oros with the help of the Miltonians worked out through a mock
trial the best solution to a mystery story in a national contest of the 'Everybodyts
Magazine and won one hundred dollars.
So for sixty years the Orophilian Lyceum has been going on, ever with that
motto of service, "Vivimus ut Agamus? It has lived and it has served. The
lives of hundreds of Milton Academy and College graduates testify to it. It
lives and serves today, even though other extra curricular activities have grown
up around it. To meet changing needs and conditions, the programs have become
lighter and more entertaining, with drill and training in parliamentary order the
strong Oro point.

In 1926, a second social affair was added to the Orophilian year, when a
doughnut and Cider stag was held at Homecoming time. The third of these stags
has been held.
It was through a movement started in the Orophilian Lyceum that the man-
agement of the Shakespearean play was transferred to the Student Body last fall.
But space confines this article, the bottom of the page approaches and it suf-
flces to say that many of Milton's most distinguished alumni are Orophilians.

The records reveal to us an account of the birth of the Philomathean Society
furnished to posterity from the pen of the late Dr. L. A. Platts. In 1863, while
still a student at Milton Academy. Mr. Platts wrote:
"On the evening of Sept. 11, 1860. a company of young men. animated with
high hopes for the future, assembled in the mathematical room of Milton Academy
for the purpose of organizing a society for mutual improvement in debating, com-
position and elocution. They were not, however, permitted to proceed under the
most Hattering circumstances; for, hemmed in, as they were, by those narrow, dark.
and impenetrable walls of the aforesaid mathematical room within, and surrounded
without on every side by the Orophilian Society, whose authority many of them
had just revolted, their juvenile endeavors sneered at by the Ladies' Literary So-
ciety, over whom they have since watched with more than fraternal affection. and
their earnest efforts tauntingly styled tboysi playf it is not a matter of wonder that
some feeling of despondency should have arisen. However, with Philomathean
for a name, and Nil Desperandum for a motto, they set sail upon the trackless
ocean which lay before them?
Such, then, is the picture of the debut made by the Philomathean Society of
Milton College. Amplification of the matter would show that a small group, led
in the main by Henry C. Curtis and W. P. Clarke, seceded from the Orophilian
ranks in the year 1859 and formed the Adelphic Society. Its formation met with
considerable opposition on the part of the Oros and the faculty of the college. but
the newly-formed organization successfully weathered the icy blasts and the follow-
ing year, 1860, took upon themselves the title of Philomathean Society.

Since that time the society has continued to function with a precision difficult
to match. It was only during the period of the Civil War that there appeared any
serious difficulty in maintaining a quorum, because of the number of loyal members
who had joined the regiments. The problem was successfully met by allowing
women to take part in the meetings. And so it is possible to say that never once
since its establishment, seventy long years ago, has the Philomathean Society ever
failed to play a prominent part in the life of Milton College.
Mr. Platts tells us that the purpose of the society was ufor mutual improve-
ment in debating, composition and elocutionll and these, throughout the years, have
been the fundamentals of the work of the Society. Added to these have been other
details of work which have included industry in music, parliamentary work and
other literary lines.
In short, the history of. the Philomathean Society has been a long and praise-
worthy one, which should prove an inspiration to all present and future members to
carry on in the days to come.

It was many years ago that the Philomathean Society adopted the custom of
holding annual Philo Oyster Feeds and annual Philo Masques. During the past
two years, these events have been the principal features and the majority of the
loyal Philos have taken prominent parts in these two social events.
Questions of importance which have arisen to face the members of the Society
during the last two years have included those connected with a Philo song book,
the locking of the door to the Philo Room and the redecorating of the room. Among
the principal instigators of a Milton C ollege song book were prominent Philos, who
wished to see the Philo songs included within the pages of such a publication. The
Carmina was the outgrowth of activity 011 the part of these and other instigators.
After considerable debate, the Philos voted to continue their policy of keeping the
door to the room unlocked and thus allowing free use of the room to other students;
this was in spite of the fact that other lyceums found it necessary to change the
At this writing, the question of redecorating the room extensively was still under
consideration, but indications were that the Philomatheans will go ahead with the
work in true Philo spirit to make their quarters among the best to he found on the

School of Music
The School of Music has functioned notably in the history and development
of Milton College. It has grown from an extra activity of the students to a major
department of the school. The home of the music work has grown from the pri-
vate homes of the instructors to a beautifully situated music Studio 011 the Campus.
Credit has been given for music work in the past, and now in addition, one may
take his major in music. This growth has been gradual, and realized only through
the sacrifice and insight of the leaders and the lovers of music.
The last two years have seen more than the usual number of graduates from
the School of Music, representing all departments of music work. The Commence-
ment of June, 1928, saw three graduates in the pianoforte course, and one in the
course of vocal culture. Alice Thorngate, Dorothy W'hitford, and Eleanor
Schaible each completed the necessary requirements in theoretical music and each
gave a full-evening-graduate recital in piano, during the month of May. Arlouine
Hall fulfilled all requirements in theoretical music and technique of voice, and also
gave a graduate rcital.
This present year, there are three more music graduates; two in piano, and
one in violin. Wilma Hall and Conrad Kneip are graduates in piano, and Eunice
Thomas in violin. These graduates are each to give a recital.

a ILTON College has always been outstanding, due to the great interest
that has been taken in music. 0f the musical organizations on the Cam-
't 1 pus, the Milton College Glee Club has been best known. This organiza-
tion has helped to keep up the standard of music, for which this College
The history of the Milton College Glee Club is interesting. Before there
was any regular organized body known as the Milton College Glee C1ub, there
was a group that was known as the male chorus, under the direction of Dr. J. M.
Stillman. It was not until 1912 that such an organization came into being. This
was organized under the direction of Prof. L. H. Stringer, and under the manage-
ment of Prof. A. E. Whitford. At that time the Club consisted of twelve men.
Three years later, the number was raised to sixteen, and fmally to twenty which
is the present number. The First tours of the Club were very brief, taking in only
three or four places. Year by year the number of concerts were increased until
now the trips are quite extended.
In the summer of 1916, eight men were selected to tour the state of XViseon-
sin 0n the University Extension Chautauqua Circuit. This group was known as
the Milton College Octet. They sang in the principal cities of Wisconsin. In
1918 the Glee Club disbanded due to the fact that Professor Stringer was engaged
in Y work at the Great Lakes Training Camp. When he returned in 1919, work
was resumed and has continued to the present time.
TOUR OF 1928
XVhen the Glee Club men met for their first session in the fall, they found that
five of their members had gone, due to leaving school or graduation. Those places
were filled by W. R. Sayre, H. D. Ellis, W. W. Holliday, E. M. Ellis and E. D.
Van Horn. This year the program was changed slightly. In place of a stunt,
a group of folk songs was substituted. The program was of an excellent type,
and everywhere the Glee Club went they were highly commended. Some new
places were on the itinerary this year. The first concert was given at Albion.
Among some of the towns visited were Johnsonis Creek, Beaver Dam, Fort Atkins
son, Whitewater, Park Ridge, 111., Oak Park, 111., and Beloit.
The home concert was given Saturday evening, March 11.
TOUR OF 1929
This year the ranks of the Glee Club were again lessened, especially in the
First tenor section. This was due to the withdrawal from school of M. C. Sayre,
E. D. Van Horn, E. C. Johanson, and G. E. Michel. Also L. M. Hatlestad, second
tenor, and P. M. Loofboro, first bass, graduated in 1928. The club again in-
cluded Battle Creek in its itinerary this year and concerts were given while on the
way to and from the Cereal City.

Glee Club. The name was later changed to Treble Clef. The first public
appearance was made at Commencement in 1913. The following year, Miss A1-

teen. The Treble Clef gave its first concert in the spring of 1915. Annual con-
certs have been given every year since, except in 1917 and 1921. Instead of giving
a concert in 1917, the Treble Clef assisted in the School of Music Commencement
program. 111 1921, plans for a concert were abandoned, as Miss Alberta found it
necessary to leave, and there was no one to take her place until after the Glee Club
concert, when Professor Stringer took charge and drilled the Treble Clef for the
In years past, most of the success of the Treble Clef has been due to the untire
ing efforts of Miss Alberta, who has always given much of her time in the attempt
to obtain a high standard of musical excellence and appreciation.
In 1927, Mrs. Ellen Place took over the directorship. as Miss Alberta found
her duties were demanding too much of her time to allow her to keep on with the

Other Musical Organizations
ILTON has always been noted for its musical organizations. In the realm
of vocal work, beside the Glee Club and Treble Clef. the Choral Union,
under the direction of Prof. L. H. Stringer, has come to be not only a
' college activity, but one which includes many townspeople and others
from the surrounding community. Indeed, it is now a feature of the community,
sponsored by the music department of the College.
The Choral Union is one, of the oldest organizations of the College. Each
year, just preceding the Christmas season the Choral Union gives its concert.
Often the solo work is done by professionals from Chicago. For several years,
Handel's Messiah was given, with great success. Other great oratorios have been
given also, such as "Elijah," and "The Creation."
In 1927 2The Rose Maiden" by Cowen was given. a lighter but very musical
cantata. This production was unusual in that all of the solo parts were taken by
students or local people. Arlouine Hall, soprano, Bernice Brewer, contralto, Ellis
Johanson, tenor, and Richard Sheartl, baritone, were the soloists.
This last year, 1928, Mendelssohnls tlElijah" was given. The chorus was
made up of about one hundred college students and townspeople. The soloists
were professional and their exceptional ability, along with the commendable work
of the Chorus, presented one of the finest performances of its kind. The soloists
were, Olive June Lacy, soprano; Vera Lean, contralto; B. Fred Wise, tenor; and
Rollin Pease, bass.
Another 01d and active organization allied with both the College and the com-
munity is the Milton College Symphony Orchestra. For many years it was directed
by various members of the School of Music and in 1918, W. C. Daland, president
of the College, took Charge of the orchestra and built it up gradually until two
symphony concerts were given during some of the seasons. Upon the death of
Dr. Daland in 1921, Professor Stringer assisted in directing the orchestra for a
Dr. G. W. Post has more recently most ably filled the position of director
and has tired the members with enthusiasm, so that Milton, in the past few years
has attained quite a reputation for its symphony concerts. Besides the home con-
cert, programs have been given in Janesville for several seasons.
The year 1928 found the orchestra especially active. XVith a membership of
about thirty-five, three concerts. in XVhitewater, Fort Atkinson, and Milton, were
given. Mrs. Ellen Place, head of the violin department. as the concert violinist
and leader in the organization of the orchestra, did a great deal toward its ad-
This present year, 1929, has seen a radical change in the organization. It
was decided to change the membership and limit it only to college students. Sev-
eral townspeople were thus excluded and because of this. there is a lack of material.
This, combined with the resignation of Dr. Post, and a lack of cooperation on the
part of the students, caused the orchestra to disband for the year.

Milton College Band
The Milton College Band has been rather of an intermittent nature, as have
other organizations on the Campus. There had been a lull for a few years until
1918, when. in accordance with many other colleges during the war. Milton had an
organized S. A. T. C. on its Campus. The need for a good band was great, and
at this time joe Johnson organized a student band, which continued until the year
1924. Milton Davis was leader of this band during part of that time.
Since 1924 there has been no regular college band until this present school
year. T. Zinn Stillman, having had experience in playing in bands, supplied the
necessary impetus for starting the organization of a new band and became its en-
thusiastic conductor. Harold C. Stillman 0f the Class Of 1909 donated the music,
and a goodly number of players have joined the ranks.
The band this year was especially prominent during the football season, adding
greatly to the enthusiasm of Homecoming with its peppy music and attractive
appearance in uniform. It is expected that as an organization the band will con-
tinue and will grow.

Milton College Y. W. C. A.
t . HE history of the Y. tY. C. A. of Milton College is an interesting and an
active one. It was organized in the spring of the year 1907, having for
its first president Anna tVest. Previous to this year the women of the
college had been active in the joint organization known as the Milton
College Christian Association.
The Davis Room was used as a place of meeting until 1921,when the Y. XV.
C. A. acquired a room of its own, which is the home of the present Y. W. C. A.
At this time a Change was made in the location of the Review Office. leaving vacant
the room opposite the Y. M. C. A. room in the basement of the Main Hall. This
was taken over by the girls and transformed into an attractive room. All of the
work was done by the Association members. In 1925, a hreplace was built in the
mom, money for which was obtained by the selling of bricks at twenty-hve cents
each. This Fireplace has added much to the room. This year, 1928, the room
was completely redecorated by the present Association members. The room is
now a very pleasant one, and it is the desire of the Y. W. C. A. that it become a
college social center and meeting place.
Since organization, the outstanding yearly activities have been a Mother and
Daughter Banquet, a japanese sale. fall and spring retreats.recognition services,
teas for Senior college girls and Senior high school girls, Big and Little Sister
programs, and the sending of delegates to Geneva during summer conferences.
A new project has been added to this list, and that is a play given in the late
fall. This project is a joint one with the Y. M. C. A. In December, 1926, "Little
Women" was given. In December, 1927, HDaddy Long Legstt was presented, and
this year, the production was "The Tightwad." These plays have been coached by
Prof. L. C. Shaw, and the casts have been taken from the Student Body, not being
limited to Association members.
The Y. W. C. A., through its activities, has been of service 011 the Campus
and away from the Campus. The Y. W. of 1921 had for one project the support
of a war orphan in France. Each'year financial support has been given to the
National Student Federation of the. Y. W. C. A. Miltons apportionment averages
fifty dollars yearly. This year, in addition, a gift of five dollars was sent to the
Foreign Student Federation, a practice which will probably be continued in future
The work of the Y. W. C. A. is of interest to many students and is worthy
of being so. It is a leading campus activity and should grow and develop in the
future in proportion to other campus development. It is not merely a local activity,
but gives Milton College girls a bond of fellowship, a definite connection and asso-
ciation, with the girls of other college campuses throughout the world.

The redecoration of the Y. XV. C. A. room this year has been the most out-
standing project which the Association has undertaken in the last two years. The
work was largely done by the girls. though members of the Y. M. C. A. generously
contributed of their time and energy in assisting with the heavy work.
Under the leadership of Ruby Maas last year, and Rosalia Marquart this year,
the progress of the Y. W. C. A. has been steady. As a special feature this year
the Y. W. was represented at the meeting of cabinet members from Southern Wis-
consin Colleges and the University. The group was also represented at the Geneva
Such activities as participation in the National Day of Prayer, retreats, big
and little sister functions, and vesper services sponsored by both Associations
have characterized the work. The weekly meetings are by no means less deserving
of mention than any other of these activities, for it is through them that interest
is maintained and ends accomplished. The attention and attendance at the weekly
meetings this year predict a greater era of Y. XV. C. A. service on MiltonTs Campus.

History of Y. M. C. A.
Young Mens Christian Association on the Milton Campus. In 1907
this organization was started by interested members of a former society
called the Milton College Christian Association. It maintained very much
the same spirit as the older association. But in addition it was felt that it would
be more advantageous to be allied with the State and International Associations,
so that the organization could receive the benefits of cooperation. This new organ-
ization started out with much the same purpose as is now existent. It stated in its
constitution that its purpose is nto promote growth in grace and Christian fellow-
ship among its members. and aggressive Christian work, especially by and for
students? This organization carried on its work in very much the same man-
ner as the present organization, meetings being held on Tuesday and Friday
evenings. Those who helped in organizing the association were Leman H.
Stringer, R. Vernon Hurley, Claude D. Stillman. Alton G. Churchward, Harold
G. Ingham, Wilbur Stewart, Lester T. Hull, and L. Harry North.
This new organization seemed very enthusiastic. In the year 1908. men
were sent to attend conferences at Appleton and Lake Geneva. Nothing was
unattainable for this group, it seems, for they managed to send two representa-
tives, L. H. Polan and H. G. Ingham, to a convention of the International Vol-
unteer Movement held at Rochester, N. Y.
In 1911, the Y. M. C. A. took a great interest in missionary work in China.
This was brought about undoubtedly by a Milton graduate, Miss Anna West,
who was sent there as a missionary. The organization raised a sum of money
which was applied on Miss West's salary.
In 1912 a room was rented by the Y. M. members. This was furnished and
maintained as a reading room for the men of the college. Enthusiasm does not
seem to have been waning at this period, for we have the report that in 1916 thir-
teen men representing Milton attended the Lake Geneva Convention.
. The Y. M. C. A. was reorganized in 1920 when a new and more up-to-date
constitution was adopted. This enthusiastic group of men fixed up the room in
the basement of the Main Hall that is used at present for the Y. M. C. A. The
room was entirely rejuvenated by attractive curtains, rugs, pictures, books and
a ping-pong table.
In 1922, the Association was fortunate in having ten members who attended
the officers training conference at Madison. These men returned full of pep
and gave the organization a big boost. During this same year the Y. M. C. A.
men were instrumental in constructing the cement walk near the gymnasium.
The College furnished the materials and the Y. M. men did the work under JanIS
The Y. M. room was decorated again in 1924 and the piano and two tables
were purchased in 1925.
In April, 1926, Prof. L. H. Stringer who had been the faculty advisor of
the Y. M. C. A. since 1913 was relieved and Prof. L. C. Shaw was selected
as his successor. In 1927 the plan was adopted of holding the meetings of the
Christian Associations during the chapel period on Tuesdays.

The Y. M. C. A. holds a distinctive place on the Campus of Milton College,
and its need is more greatly felt as each succeeding year passes by.

in attendance. "Daddy Long Legs'T was played this year. In general the whole
program of the Y was of a constructive type and well carried out.
April 10, 1928, marked the beginning of the term of office of W'. W. Holliday
as president of the Y. M. C. A. The flrst activity under his direction was the
spring retreat at the lake. Thanksgiving Vesper Service in the Chapel was a new
and inspirational feature, this year. ttThe Tightwad" was presented as the annual
stage production jointly with the Y. W. C. A. and was a big success. The Christ-
mas Vesper Service was the finest and most inspirational yet held.
During Christmas rceess. the Y. M. Room was the scene of great activity. A
general cleanup occurred, and after all was over, the walls were redecorated, new
curtains adorned the windows, new lighting fixtures made the lighting more service-
able, a new grate was found in the hreplace, and in general the room presented a
cozy home-like appearance. It was dedicated by a house warming party given to
the members of the two Associations.

For many years, it has been the custom of both of the Christian Associations
to hold retreats. The Y. M. C. A. has a retreat each spring. while the members
of the Y. XV. C. A. hold outings in both the fall and spring of each year.
The practice is for the members to gather together enough camping equip-
ment for a stay of one night's duration in the open. Committees are appointed
to prepare the eats and the entertainment, and other committees are selected to
take care of the program. The program usually takes the form of work in dis-
cussion groups and there is usually an outside speaker or two to help in this work.
Many and varied topics, dealing with the problems of youth today, are brought
up for consideration at these times.
The majority of the snaps shown above were taken at the time of the retreats
of the two associations. These are times of great activity as far as the members
are concerned, and large numbers usually take the opportunity to get away from
college for the outing, fun and meetings. The plan is usually to start out on Fri-
day afternoon, remain at the camp, usually located either at Koshkonong or on
the Rock River, Friday night and a part of Saturday.
At various times during the year, the members of the two Associations and
those who regularly attend the meetings of the Student Volunteers also participate
in various shorter outings.

During the winter of 1927-28, members of the science departments of Milton
College saw the possibility of gaining a greater good in the lines of science by
organizing a club to consist of: the students of Milton who were interested in that
line of study. This idea gave birth to the Milton College Science Club.
The members and promoters of this club were those students who planned
to major or minor in one of the four science departments, and the professors of
the Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics departments. It was thought
advisable to hold meetings once each month, and at each meeting to have some
special feature or speaker worthy of note
During the past two y,ears several noted science men from the U11iversity of
Wisconsin have been secured to address the club on various subjects Demonstra-
tions in scientific lines have thus been given in Milton which could in no other
way be secured. A portion of the meetings in the second semester of each year
has been given over for the use of science majors 0f the Senior Class At these
meetings the Seniors address the club on subjects which concern their theses work.
A portion of the oral examinations are now based upon the lectures and demonstra-
tions given in these meetings during the school year.

The Milton College Boarding Club is a student organization whose officers
are selected from the members, and which is headed by a matron who has charge
of the cooking. The matron is assisted by helpers who earn their board in payment
for their services.
The faculty, in the summer of 1921, decided that the college needed an organ-
ized boarding Club. Mrs. Stella Terwilliger 0f Janesville was secured to take
charge of the cooking. G. S. Kennedy was elected manager. The Club has grown
from a small group to a large organization, including as many as forty members.
The history of the club since its beginning in 1921 has been a worthy one. It
has shown itself to be extremely essential to the needs of the college students. The
purpose of the organization has been to provide food to students on the most eco-
nomical basis possible.
During the past year, under the managership of K. B. Davis, the presidency
of Evelyn Beneditz. and with Mrs. C. Allen Davis as matron the club has been
very successful. The membership has averaged twenty-five.

The Girlsi Hiking Club is well on its way in its eighth year. It was organ-
ized for the purpose of giving the girls of the College a chance to have organ-
ized exercise. The purpose of the members is to hike one-hundred miles. Each
hike that counts toward this goal must he at least four miles. When a girl has
completed the required mileage she earns a felt MHC. This counts two points
out of the seven needed to win a four-inch M.
The club in the season of 1927-28 awarded MHC's to Mary Johnson,
Dorothy TYinCh, Lenora Bahmck, Etelka Foster, and Charity Leigh TYood, re-
spectively, as they wan them.
The officers of the club in the 1927-28 season were, president, Verone Mar-
quette; vice-president, Katherine Connelly; secretary-treasurer, Dorothy Winch.
The officers of this season are, president, Dorothy W'inch; vice president,
Mary Johnson; and secretary-treasurer. Frances Hatlestad.
Whenever possible members of the club hike as a group, otherwise they go
singly or in small groups.
The club has done much to stimulate girls' activity in athletics.

Goodrich Hall came into existence in the year 1857, when the need was
felt for more rooms for the use Of students. The board of trustees decided to
erect upon the campus a dormitory four stories high, including the basement.
This building cost about $5,000. The money was raised by subscription, the
difference between the amount obtained and the actual cost being furnished by
joseph Goodrich and Jeremiah Davis.
At that time. and for the next flve years, the dormitory was used for both
men and women students; the women occupying the third and fourth fioors
and the men the first and basement Hours. The dormitory often had more than
hfty students. and at one time each of its thirty-two rooms was rented.
In the basement of the dormitory was a dining room, large enough to seat
forty persons, where the. students could obtain hoard for nine shillings, 0r
$1.12V2 a week.
Several years later. Principal XV. C. VVhitford and his brother, Albert
VVhitford, purchased the flouring mill at Nathan Saunders and moved it to a
position 011 the north side of what is now College Street, opposite Goodrich
Hall. where it was converted into a men's dormitory of eighteen rooms. Until
it was sold for private use it served both as a dormitory and as a gymnasium.
This left Goodrich Hall for the use Of women students.
Since that time the Hall has continued to serve as a dormitory for women
and the majority of its rooms have always been in use.

The Milton College Review
The Milton College Review, now issuing its thirty-hrst volume, has kept
up its record of successful publication during the last two years. The history of
the Review shows that it has gone through various stages of development and
improvement from the time of its beginning as a small pamphlet to a very large
newspaper-size sheet and back again to its present convenient shape and struc-
true. Each of these stages has been accompanied by changes in arrangement and
During the year 1926-27, the editorship of the Review was capably under-
taken by A. P. Kenyon, 129. During his regime, the make-up of the paper at
the Davis Printing Company was taken over, which business arrangement has
At the beginning;r 0f the second semester. 1928. R. G. Dunbar, '29, became
editor of the Review and completed a year characterized by papers carefully
composed, balanced, and filled with news.
The editorial policies during the work of both of these editors was out-
standing. Both editors and their staff members have worked very hard and have
been very faithful to a task which is extremely difficult.
The present editor of the Review is Evelyn Beneditz, 130. Miss Beneditz
is the first woman since 1919 to hold this position. The first issues published
by the new staff give indication that the year will be a successful one.

Due to the need felt upon the Campus for a bound copy of the Milton College
songs, it was voted in the spring of 1927, after a great deal of discussion and con-
sideration, to publish 21 Milton College song book. At the annual election of student
body officers, P. W. Allen was Chosen to edit this flrst edition of Milton songs. Upon
his staff were found A. P. Kenyon, business manager; Wilma Hall, circulation
manager; R. G. Dunbar, editor of history, and Alberta Crandall. Arlouine Hall,
L. H. Stringer, M. C. Sayre, and Alice Thorngate, music editors.
The staff began work in the fall of the 1927-28 term and was able to publish
the book in April 1928. The name of the new song book, Carmina, was chosen
by the Latin Department of the College, and means favorite songs.
Found in this edition of the Carmina are, as nearly as possible, all the old
Milton songs, and in addition, several new songs written especially for the publica-
tion. The last half of the book is devoted to old favorite songs, frequently heard
about the Campus. A short history was written in connection with some of the
best-liked Milton songs and an historical account accompanied lyceum collections.
One hundred copies of the Carmina were placed in the Chapel by the staff. It is
felt that these books are hlling a need that had been apparent for several years.

Rolland Sayre is known by only a few of the generation of students now at-
tending Milton College. but in the hearts and minds of his old associates and
teachers and the townspeople uf Milton, his memory still lives.
Such sterling qualities of character as he possessed can never be forgotten,
but will live forever in the minds of those who knew him.
llRolly" entered Milton College with the class of 1925. Here, his interest and
ability in various student activities became immediater manifest. He went out for
all the branches of athletiss during his lireshman year, winning a place in all of
them. In football. he was a substitute halfehack, in basketball a regular center.
and one of the leading individual smrers of the season. In baseball and track
he also showed his worth.
But Rolland's time was not all for athletics; his interest in things scholastic
was also high. He was a member of the Y. M. C. A. Cabinet, where his leader-
ship and high ideals were a source of strength to the organization. To Rolly
belonged the four-sqnare life.

Coach and Captains
Above are pictured the athletes who have led the various branches of athletic
endeavor during the past year.
hChoke" Ruwhutham. who goes by the impressive title of Director of Ath-
letics, is the center of all things in the sporting line on the campus. His words
are the important ones in football, basketball, track, tennis, and the gym Classes,
and he is also consulted concerning intramural athletics in addition to special activi-
ties that need the extra "pushh that he can supply.
"Ox" Buending was captain of the football team of two years ago. During
the 1928 season the team was under the inspiring leadership of hMike" Meyer.
Meyerts football career ended in a blaze of glory, as Milton romped to a runaway
victory over the Platteville Teachers.
"Skip" DeLong had the honor of captaining the basketball team for two
successive years. Skip has proven himself a capable leader as well as a dependable
player and all-around athlete.
Walsh is a prohcient track man, excelling in the dashes, the century being
his pet distance.
hTony" Burdickts ability at tennis is a by-word on the campus. He has
played the net game from the time that he was big enough to hold a racquet.
Of these five athletes three, Buending, DeLong, and Meyer have won the
Rolland Sayre Medal for all-around ability, and the other two, Burdick and W alsh,
are both three sport men.

History of Football
11E following history contains parts of an article written by R. K. Meyer.
26, which appeared in the Milton Co11ege Review in the fall of 1925:
Before the year 1900 Milton College had football teams but no an-
t thentic record can he found of the teams and general history. In Sep-
tember 1900 an Athletic Association was formed to establish a Department of
Athletics in Milton College.
In this year the football team was organized with 1C. 12. Bond as manager
and Lewis A. Platts, J11, as captain. The first team Of which any written record
can be found was made up as foilows:
XV. H. Johanson, 1e; 11. C. Stewart, 1t; 14. A. Millar, lg; 12. D. Van Horn, c;
A. G. Davis. rg; H. R. Irish, rt; ti. I. Hurley. re; 11. H. T. Jackson, qh; A. 1..
Van Horn, 1hh; L. A. Piatts, jt 1.11.
The average weight of the players was from 155 to 160 pounds. Much opti-
mism was felt that that year's team would he the best the College ever had.
The First game played this season was with Whitewater Normal second
team and resulted in a victory for W'hitewater, 15 to 0. Will johanson and E. D.
Van Horn starred in this game.
About this timeeNovemher. 19007there appeared a picture of the Milton
College football team. The suits are varied and many outside pads and shin-
guards are in evidence. The men looked like good material for a football team. An
editorial appearing at this time in the Review says that the men did not use any
tobacco or swear 0n the gridiron, which was considered well for a football team.
Milton p1ayed the Stoughton Reds and tied 10 to 10. On election day the
College played the IVhitewater seconds at W'hitewater mid mud. s1eet,,rain. and
snow. The score ended 16 to 0, XVhitewater winning. The last game of the
season was played against the Golden Eagles of Janesvil1e. Janesville won this
game, 11 t0 0.
Thus the Flrst season ended with three defeats and one tie game. The team
did well considering seven men had no experience and the rest of the team very
little. There were not enough men out for two teams. so practice was impossible.
The College team started this with a 6 t0 0 defeat at the hands of IVhitewater.
The second game was played with Edgerton, the College winning 38 t0 5. Milton
lost the third game to Whitewater, 10 t0 0. Both touchdowns were made on
fumbles. Milton settled an old score in the Milton junction game when they beat
the heavier Junction team. The Review states that appropriate ceremonies were
held that evening. In the fifth game Milton defeated Albion Academy in a hard-
fought battle, 6 to 0. Milton won the last game of the season from Edgerton.
16 t0 0.
Milton scored 97 points to their opponents 21 ; won four games and lost two.
This was an exceptionalIy good year for the College team considering the fact
that they had no coach and few men out. The names of W. Rogers, Bliss, VVhit-
ford and Stewart seem to stand out as the best football men in this season.
Milton started the season with a defeat at the hands of Northwestern of
Watertown. The second game netted defeat at the hands of Sacred Heart College.
Whitewater won the next game by 22 points. After this defeat the morale was
Page One Hundred Sixteen
poor and demanded great efforts on the part of the coach, A. E. VVhitford. The
next game with Beloit resulted in a 6 t0 6 tie, with Milton having the edge on the
Academy. The Thanksgiving game with the Beloit Unions 0n the home gridiron
was a great success, Milton winning, 34 to O. Platts seemed to be the outstanding
man along with Bliss in this season.
Milton 10st four games and won one in the year, and also tied one game. The
locals defeated Beloit Academy and tied the Milton AlleStars. The team lost to
Marquette, 32 t0 6, and t0 Whitewater, among other teams.
Football had to be given up in 1904 because of the lack of money and support
of the townspeople and was not revived until 1916. In the fall of this year the
College again started football with Coach Snell directing. The first game was
with the Milwaukee Normal and the College was badly defeated. The Brown and
Blue was defeated by the VVauwatosa Aggies, 13 t0 0. Outstanding men were
Sayre, Van Horn, Dick Burdick, L. Shaw, Lanphere, and Kelly.
Football was permanently reinstated by the students recommending that the
trustees raise the student tax one dollar for football. The captain was XV. Hill-
strom and the Manager J. E. Holmes, for 1917.
Football nearly sank into the grave again, but through the efforts of W.
Hillstrom and others, the game was kept in the school although three weeks had
been lost. Mr. Hemming from the University of Wisconsin was the coach. Four-
teen men tried out for line positions and six for the backfield.
A delegation of students went to the trustees to abolish the rule they had
made to the effect that no athletics should be held during 1917 and 1918. Several
of the trustees promised to help the students. The students raised $200 for the
support of football. On October 15 the Board of Trustees reinstated football in

unbelievable score of 123 to 0, unless the Review was guilty of a typographical
error. Kakuske, Curtis, Randolph, Oakley, and Warner appear in the lineup.
There was no football for three years after this, due to lack of finance and
lack of interest, but the athletic department secured George Crandall as coach be-
ginning in the fall of 1921. This assured a football team. Coach Crandallls men
lost three straight games this year to Whitewater, 34 to 0, to Milwaukee Normal,
55 to O, and to Northwestern, 26 to O. llPedel, Lanphere was captain for the year
Thirty men reported for grid practice this year. The games thomel were
played in Janesville, as it was thought that it would pay better. The use of the
fairgrounds was secured for this purpose.
. Milton lost to Northwestern, 26 to 0, but won from Platteville Normal, 13 to 2.
The next game the Miltonites lost, 27 to O, the Miners on the big end of the score.
At Janesville, Milton held the Normal School State Champions, Whitewater, to one
touchdown. Milton lost to the Miners in the last game of the season 13 to 6.
After this last game, the team held a banquet at the Grand Hotel, Janesville, where
the season was reviewed. four defeats and one victory.
During this year, Milton won only one game out of six, that from the Miners,
losing to Platteville Normal, Northwestern, Whitewater, St. Norberts, and Carroll.
Keplarls playing seemed outstanding.
In 1924, Milton lost to Whitewater Normal, DeKalb Normal, Carroll. and
Marquette by scores of 16 to 0, 18 to 8, 33 to 3, and 6 t0 0 respectively, but tied
the Platteville Miners, the Teachers, and Northwestern.
Right at present Milton seems to be approaching her football heyday for until
the 1928 and 1929 seasons the records reveal that the brown and blue has never had
a winning team with the exception of the team of 1901 which won four games out
of six. Meyer writes, "Milton has always been noted for its good, clean, sports-
manship throughout the state. Although victories have been few, the fellows have
learned the game and have come to play it more; for the love of it than for the
wins. Never has Milton lowered her standards of sportsmanship to win a game."
Mr. Meyer attempted to pick two "All Timell teams. They are of course in-
accurate due to the fact that they are based on opinions of the llold timers" and
Review writeups only. Many will disagree with the selections and indeed who has
written an llAllll team that was agreeable to everyone? They follow:

Athletic T eams
Athletic teams of various natures have existed at Milton College for many
years, but it was not until about 1900 that there was an organized football team.
Before that time, the teams seem to have been more or less of the piCk-up variety.
There were no uniforms, evidently. but everybody played in their everyday clothes.
It seems that not even hats were eliminated from the heads of the athletes, the
ordinary street adornment serving the purpose of the now essential head-gear of
the football men.
Track suits in those days were no different than the clothes that were worn
to Chapel, and tennis could not be efficiently played without a derby and full
It seems that soon after football was oilieially organized as a college activity,
uniforms were secured for the players, and regular practice sessions were held.
Baseball also became one of the college sports, and some very good teams repre-
sented the College. T hese teams also either were provided, or provided themselves,
with uniforms, although there are many records of teams which played at the Col-
lege without any uniforms.
In the pictures which occupy a part of this section, no doubt old timers will
recognize many of the men who represented the College in the days of old.

ILTQN COLLEGE enjoyed one of the most successful football seasons in
its history in 1927. 51x games were played in the course of the season,
of Wthh three were won, one tied, and two lost.
Coach Norris Rowbotham issued a call for candidates on September
15, a week before school opened, in order to condition his men for an earlv season
game against Whitewater State Teachers' College which was scheduled for Sep-
tember 30. Fifteen men reported for the pre-season practices and more requested
suits during the next few days until the squad numbered about thirty. The quality
of the material which included nine letter men from the previous year and a num-
ber of football stars from Janesville High School and the other near-hy schools.
gave promise of a winning team.
In the First game which was played on the Whitewater held September 30,
the Miltonites showed the effect of the short training period and fell an easy victim
to the Purple Gridmen, the score being 17 to O.
The second game, in which Mt. Morris College provided the opposition, also
resulted in defeat for the local football warriors. The teams battled on nearly
even terms throughout. Each team scored a touchdown, Mt. Morris making theirs
by two long plunges through the line and Milton as a result of a pass which re
sulted in Shadells sprinting sixty yards for the score. A miX-up in the Milton
backfield late in the game resulted in a safety and consequently a 9 t0 6 victory
for the opponents,
The Milton eleven took the flrst Victory of the season when the Platteville
School of Mines was defeated 9 t0 0 in a game that was Miltonls throughout, but
was closer than the score would indicate. Owen Trevorrah, 135 pound quarter-
back, was the star of the game.
The next game found Northwestern College Of XVatertown clashing with the
Brown and Blue in the annual Homecoming fray. Inspired by the support of the
Homecoming crowd and invigorated hy the cool weather, Milton tore loose in the
first half and played all around the Red and Black. The second half was more
nearly even. The final score was 20 t0 6.
In a Windstorm that reached almost cyclonic proportions Milton College and
the Platteville State Teachers' team battled to a 6 t0 6 tie on the Platteville field.
Good football was almost impossible and fumbles were frequent. MiltOIfs touch-
down was made through the line. In an attempted punt, the wind caught the pass
from center. It rolled over Miltonls goal and was covered by a Platteville man
for the touchdown which tied the score.
In the windup game of the season Milton passed and dashed and trampled
all over Elmhurst College to the tune of 39 to 0. Milton was at top form. and
utterly demoralized the men from Illinois.
Coach Rowbotham initiated the policy in the fall of 1927 of matching the
second team with outside competition. The Delavan School for the Deaf was
played on the local field on October 27. The reserves far outweighed their younger
opponents, but the lattersl greater experience and finer knowledge of the game was
evident throughout the contest and was responsible for the score, which was 25 t0 0,
in favor of the visitors.

In spite of this fact. the season's opener was lost to Whitewater by a score
of 18 to 6. An amount of enthusiasm that has seldom been seen on the Milton
Campus was aroused over this game against the greatest rival. It served to carry
the local team through a full period of inspired football and gave them a lead of
6 to 0 at half time. In the second period, however, the desperate playing of the
Brown and Blue was not sufficient to prevent the Purple Wave from driving
across three touchdowns. For at least another year the 01d burden will have to
be borne, 21 Milton College football team has never defeated Whitewaterls team, in
the eighteen years of competition between the two schools.
The second game of. the season. which was played in mud and rain on the
Platteville Mining School field, resulted in a Victory for Milton. The score, 7 to 0,
indicated that the game was hard-fought. The touchdown was made as a result
of a pass from Ellis to W'alsh in the hrst few minutes of play, after which the
teams plowed through the mud on more or less even terms.
A most remarkable game was staged by the Milton men at VVatertown against
Northwestern College. Trailing at the half, 6 to 0, and clearly bested in every
department of the game, they came back in the second half, a different team, and
utterly routed the Red and Black pigskin toters. scoring three touchdowns in that
period. The final score was 18 t0 6.
At Milwaukee, it appeared as though a repetition of the Northwestern game
might be in prospect. for with the score 14 to 0 against them at the end of the
first half, due mainly to the brilliant work of Van Horn, the Milton men staged
a complete reversal of form in the third quarter, scored one touchdown and lacked
only inches of a second one before the Green Wave recovered from its surprise
and ran the score up to 32 to 6.
The Elmhurst game, played on the Illinois held on November 9, was in many
respects the best game of the season. T wo closely matched teams, one, Elmhurst,
a line-smashing team, and the other, Milton, a passing whirlwind, contested, and the
line-smashers won, 6 to 0.
Of the final game of the season, held in Milton on Nevember 16 before a rain-
soaked Homecoming crowd, little need be said. Milton simply ran rampant over
the Platteville teachers and annihilated them with seven touchdowns for a 43-t0-O
score. Every man on the Milton squad saw action in this final fray and all played
inspired football so that it can still be said, "Milton has never lost a Homecoming

ILTUN has enjoyed the most successful football seasons in its history
during the past three years. Football here is now in its big day. Dur-
ing this period the grid teams have been far above par, due, undoubtedly,
to superior coaching on the part of Norris Rowbotham. Coach Row-
hotham played four years on the Beloit College varsity team and during that time
he received experience in nearly every position. While there he was named for All-
XVestern honors in the tackle position. He has since coached at Sheboygan High
School from which place he came to Milton in 1926.
The team amply reflects Rowbotham's ability. Due to the necessity of
starting practice almost on the day of the first game, the early season games
of the last three years have been lost, but about midseason the records show
that the team has come into its own, and the last game of each of the last
three seasons has resulted in a runaway Victory for Milton. In 1926, the last
game was against the Platteville Teachers College as a Homecoming oppon-
ent. The result was 21 29 to 6 win for the local team. Two years ago Elm-
hurst was defeated 39 to 0, and last year Milton ran up the largest football
score that has ever been made by 21 Milton team against a football opponent
when the Platteville Teachers were defeated by a score of 43 t0 0.
Nevertheless, one blot remains on Milton's football record. In eighteen
years of competition, Milton has never beaten Whitewater. We wonder what
the result would have been if in 1927 Whitewater had been played on Novem-
ber sixth instead of September 30th. or last year if the Purple had been
scheduled for November 16th instead of October 5th.
Whitewater as yet has no place on the 1929 schedule. A new opponent,
W'artburg College, of Clinton. Ia., takes its place. The Platteville Teachem
will be met this fall and the other usual strong opponents. Elmhurst, Milwau-
kee State Teachers, College, Northwestern, and the Platteville School of

ELECTING the star player from the array of able men that have rep-
resented Milton so ably on the gridiron during the past two seasons
is like picking the needle from the proverbial haystack. It is impossible.
that is all.
The only man of the 1927 squad to he lost by graduation was Captain Clarence
Buending. Tle" was a most dependable player either at tackle or at center. his
one hundred and ninety pounds of brawn coupled with an intensive knowledge
of the game made him a formidable opponent for anyone.
Milo Meyer was unfortunately unavailable during the 1927 season due to a
broken ankle sustained in the Battle Creek game. In the 1928 season, however,
he showed his real worth as a capable player and an inspiring leader. Mike was
conspicuous always for his aggressiveness and determined attitude.
Homer DeLong has Finished, this year, his fourth year of college football.
"Skipll has shown in those four years such dependability at any of his positions,
guard, tackle, or fullback, as to make him a man whose loss will surely be felt.
His two hundred pounds of bulk have torn many a hole in an opposing line.
Laurence Bevens is another outstanding man on the Milton squad. He tips
the scales at less than one hundred and sixty, but he has no peer on the squad for
bucking the line. When llBevo', Finds a hole anywhere near center, he cant be
stopped for yards and yards.
Stuart Shadel is another player of merit. llStull has had the assignment of
tossing most of the passes and he has fulhlled this job to perfection. He is a clan-
gerous man in open field running, especially on end runs, and he has several long
sprints to his credit, at least one for ninety yards, and others for forty,hf.ty, and
sixty yards. He also knows how to receive passes, notably when he shifts from
half-back to end.
Robert Wixom, captain-elect, of the 1930 season, has been much neglected by
the sports writers. This is probably due to the fact that he is not a spectacular
player. Attempted gains over his tackle position, however, are invariably nipped
in the bud for he is a tower of strength on defense as well as on offense.
It would be impossible to name the stars of the Brown and Blue and neglect
Owen Trevorrah. The diminutive "Squirt" has been the triple threat man of the
squad. He possesses the qualities of an elusive open-fleld runner, a good passer,
and steady punter, in addition to his fme generalship at the quarterback post.
Franklin Walsh has done fine work at end and shines particularly well at the
receiving end of forward passes. Agnew is another good man lost by graduation.
He has alternated, at quarterback, during the last two seasons and was a regular
there before that. Ellis has been a regular at halfback for two years, due to his
ability at forward passing and running.
Other outstanding men that cannot be eulogized more highly because of lack
of space are: ltSkinner" Meyert Walter Sayre. "Tony" Burdick, Charles Spelman,
"Tom" Grady, llBobll Belland, Evan Chambers, Henry and Jack Stokstad, Ernest
Agnew, and tTJimmie" Rasor.

A 4 ROSPECTS for basketball for the 1927-28 season were very good. Five
., letter men reported for practice on the twenty-First of November,
. 331$: namely. Capt. DeLong, Shadel, Walsh, Burdick, and Buemling. Among
h the other prospects were C. Agnew, Stewart, and Bevens, who had seen
action on the team, and L. Coon, Langdon, E. Agnewt and Ellis, who were un-
usually promising because of their high school records.
The hrst game resulted in an easy victory over the Madison 4C College, 31
to 17. The starting lineup for Milton was as follows: Coon and Shadel, for-
wards, Burdick, center, and Langdon and Delong, guards. Walsh, Buending, C.
Agnew, Stewart and Ellis also saw action in this opening fray.
During the Christmas vacation, the team put aside thoughts of Christmas
goose long enough to set back the Alumni in a rough and tumble game. The
Alumni had a team composed of members of the famous Milton Legion flve.
Paul, Chadsey, Oakley, Bentz, and Sayre, played for a time, until replaced by a
full team of Burdickls. Prof. Bill, Bob, Clifford, George, and Russell. The score
was 31 to 26.
The Brown and Blue emerged victorious over the Mt. Morris tossers with
a score of: 27 to 21 in the third game of the season. Shadel was high point
man for Milton with flve baskets and a free throw, but was closely followed by
Coon who registered four field goals for eight points. Langdon and DeLong played
their usual strong guard games.
The next victim of the Milton basket tossers was the Milwaukee State Teach-
ers, quintet, which was turned back by at 3040-23 score in a fast, rough game.
The first half was very close and ended with the score 12 to 12 due to superior work
011 the part of Gnewuch, who was the center of the difficulty on the Green and
White team. The second half found Milton forging ahead to gain the winning
The next game was a hair-raiser. Milton traveled to W'hitewater to engage her
old rival, and after one of the most exciting and stubborn battles ever waged be-
tween the two schools, emerged with a 15-to-14 victory. The score seeesawed all
the way, and the two teams were deadlocked at the half 5 to 5. An angle-shot by
Coon in the last minute of play brought Milton her hard-earned victory. Burdick,
DeLong, and Buending starred for Milton and Kendall, Schwager, and Trewyn
were the leading lights for W hitewater.
A two-day stay in Platteville resulted in an even break for the Brown and
Blue in the way of victories. 1n the first game. Milton overwhelmed the School
of Mines, 40 to 24, in spite of the stubborn Fight put up by the home team.
The second game was played against the Platteville S. T. C.. and it resulted
in a victory for the latter. 28 to 18. The teachers displayed some wonderful bas-
ketball, but nevertheless Milton was able to penetrate their defense often enough
to be a constant threat. Shadel and Delong stood out for Milton.

Coach Agnew's proteges from Whitewater invaded Milton for a return of
compliments, and after a battle that was every bit as hair-raising as the one played
at the Quaker City, emerged with a 26-t0-24 victory. This game between the rivals
was an extremely fast and rough one. Milton led at half time, 16 to 11, but lapses
in defense during the second period allowed the Purple to break ahead for the

on the lo:a1 floor, 34 to 22. The entire Milton squad of twelve men saw action
in this game. Stewart led the scoring for the locals with six baskets. Arnold and
Jones starred for the Visitors.
The Platteville S. T. C. defeated the Brown and Blue in rather decisive fash-
ion in the return game. The score was close at all times, but Platteville was never
forced to relinquish the lead. The visitors displayed the same brilliant work that
characterized their play on their home Hoor. The score at the half was 13 to 8
and the final score, 35 to 23.
After leading up to the Final minutes of play, Milton was caught napping by
the Milwaukee Teachers' quintet who nosed into the lead to win in the return
match, 37 to 33. Coach Rowbothanfs men fought vainly to regain the lead as the
game neared its end, but were unable to do so. This made the locals fifth loss of

with the score 45 to 29.
Milton dropped the final game of the season to Northwestern College, 37 to

attended the last five games. The Visitors led, 21 t0 7, at the half. but as the second
period opened Milton staged a rally that put them within three points of the lead

for the Deaf was also turned back by a score of 20 to 13.

on November 25. Prospects for a successful season were very bright.
for only two letter men of the year before were lost from the squad,
C0011 aml Bueuding. Six M winners were on hand: Captain Delltmg.
Shadel, Burdick. Stewart, Walsh and Agnew. Ellis, Bevens, and Trevorrah had
also seen action. and in addition several promising newcomers turned out for this
First practice: Sayre, Stevens, H aupt, Anderson, and Chambers.
in spite of this impressive outlay of material, the 1928-29 season turned 0111
to he a disastrous one. Only two games were won out of thirteen played. Milton
was seldom badly beaten and occasionally played stellar games against strong
teams, but somehow the punch to win was lacking.
Milton suffered defeat in the First game of the season by a score of 29 to 25
at the hands of Madison 4C College. The Visitors presented a well-balanced, pol-
ished team which worked in marked contrast to the indifferent, inconsistent play-
ing of the Brown and Blue.
The College team journeyed into Illinois on December 18 to meet Elmhurst.
Milton, still showing the lack of organization and loose play so evident in the 4C
tilt, fell victim to the smooth-working Illinois quintet, the score being 30 to 26.
The first half was all Elmhurst's, but late in the second period the Milton team
staged a rally which threatened to change the complexion 0f the contest. Unfor-
tunately it fell short of a win.
On January 9, Coach Rowliotham took his men on the annual two day jaunt
t0 Platteville. A second-string lineup was imposed upon the School of Mines
quintet in order to save the regulars for the more crucial tilt with the Teachers
which was to take place the following night. The youngsters were able to hold
their own with the aid of the regulars in the last few minutes and won, 26 to 15.
The following night found Milton playing in the Teachers College gym. The
first half was hotly contested and ended, 16 to 13, in favor of the pedagogues. The
first part of the second half brought Miltons undoing. Platteville made ten points
before Milton could score, and then it was too late for a comeback. The final
score was 35 to 24. The Rowbotham men, though beaten, played the best ball of
the season; the Johnson-Hatch-Phalon combination was too strong. DeLong and
Sayre starred for Milton.
Two nights later, January 12, the Elmhurst cagers were entertained 0n the
Milton floor. The local team was again defeated by the Clever Illinois quintet,
this time by a score of 29 to 21. This game was somewhat of a repetition of the
earlier meeting of the two teams. Elmhurst leading at the half 20 t0 8, and the
Milton men outscoring their rivals in the second frame, 13 t0 9. Shadel, with
nine points, led Miltonfs scoring. and Deluryea and Krueger starred for Elmhurst.

The Whitewater S. T. C. came to Milton on January 15. The ensuing game
was fast, rough and exciting, as is usual when these old rivals meet, but VVhite-
water emerged from the fray with the more or less comfortable lead of six points
in the 34-t0-28 score, instead of the usual one-point margin. Both teams used a
fast-breaking attack which added to the speed of the contest. The powerful
Schwager was particularly hard to stop and scored 1-1 points for the Purple and
White. Shadel led the Milton scoring with 13 points on four baskets and five free
The Mt. Morris game, which was to have been played on January 26, was
postponed on account of the depth of the snow. And due to the fact that the
semester exams came immediately afterward, no games were played for a period
of three weeks.
On February 5, the Milton men journeyed to W'hitewater for a return tilt
with Coach Agnew's quintet. This game was a repetition of the previous contest,
Milton losing 28 to 23.
The Milton team came hack to winning form on February 7, and romped to
victory over the invading School of Mines from Platteville, 45 to 27. It was :1
game of rapid-fire scoring, with Stevens leading the race with 20 points on six
baskets and eight free throws. Nankival scored 16 points toward the Miner's total.
011 February 14, the Brown and Blue cagers traveled to XVatertown, hoping
to enlarge the number of victories at the expense of Northwestern. The Lutherans
proved to he too strong, however, and overwhelmed the Milton men with their
clever teamwork, and accurate hasket-shooting t0 the tune 0f 40 to 22. Pless was
outstanding for Northwestern. and Shadel for Milton.
On February 16, Milton lost an overtime thriller t0 Platteville S. T. C. by
a score of 35 to 33. Rowliotham's men displayed the best form of the season in
this tilt. Trailing at the half, 19 to 12, they came hack in the second period to
tie the score at 19 to 19. From then on it was a see-saw affair with PlattevilleTS
teamwork opposed to the sharp-shooting 0f Shadel and Stevens. Both of these boys
were "hot" and a clear shot at the hoop by either of them meant two points for
Milton. W ith the count 31 to 30, Platteville leading, and 10 seconds to go Stevens
was given two free thr0ws. He tied the score with the First shot, but missed the
second. In the overtime, Platteville scored a basket and two free throws to Mi1t0n1s
At this time, Shadel was 10st to the team on account of the mumps. On Feb-
ruary 21, the Milton men went down to the worst defeat of the sason at the hands
of Mt. Morris, 40 to 20. The first half was fairly even. but the second was a walk-
away for the home team.
The disastrous season was brought to a close with two defeats 0n the Milton
Hoor, March 4 and 6, by Mt. Morris and Northwestern, respectively. The Mon-
taineers1 basket shooting was uncanny and resulted in a score of 39 to 19. North-
western had a more difhcult time of it, but succeeded in downing the weary Milton
quint, 26 to 14.

' e T?" HE Milton basketeers are forced to look back with regret upon a season
' ' in which only two victories were won in thirteen starts. It is a hard
situation to comprehend, since the team this year was composed of vet-
erans of three and four years experience together. It is, moreover,
practically the same team that won seven out of fourteen games last year. Five
of these veterans graduate this spring, and thus Miltonites can only hope that new
blood will infuse the team with a new life next season.
DeLong. Shadel, Burdick, Agnew, and Walsh are the men who will graduate.
Of these DeLong and Shadel are four-year letter men.
DeLong has captained the team for the last two seasons. From his position
at guard, he has been, with his leadership and his playing, the balance wheel of
the team. "Skipll is a smart defensive player, and also stands well upon the scoring
Shadel is a forward and center of no mean ability. "Stull is fast and depend-
able, and his sharp-shooting eye has made him the scoring ace of the squad for
the last two seasons.
Burdickls six feet two inches of aggressiveness gave him a strong bid for
the center position. From this post he scored 59 points a year ago.
Walsh has played forward, center and guard at different times during his
three years at Milton. llZendall is equally good at any of them.
llChick" Agnew has become a dependable forward during his four years of
basketball. He saw action in every game of the last season and rates third in indi-
The squad this last year was composed of nine players of such nearly equal
ability that each could consider himself a regular at some time during the season.
The season was started with Stevens and Agnew at forwards, Shadel at center,
and Walsh and DeLong at guards. Shadel played forward when Burdick went in
at center, and Ellis alternated with Walsh at guard. DeLong was tried out at
forward for a game or two while Sayre and Walsh held down the back court.
About mid-season, Coach Rowbotham sent Stewart in to team with Stevens at
forward and placed Shadel at center and Sayre and DeLong as guards. This
lineup played' together until Shadel became a victim of the mumps and was re-
placed by Walsh. In the final game, HChokel, decided to treat the Seniors to a final
splurge of playing, and so the last game was played with an alleSenior lineup
except for Stevens whom it was necessary to substitute for Shadel.
The records reveal that high individual scoring honors for the 1929 season go
to Shadel with 99 points scored in 10 games, an average of nearly 10 points agame.
Stevens followed with 82, and Agnew, Stewart, and DeLong trailed with 31, 30,
and 28 points, respectively. The team as a whole scored 324 points to the oppo-

An unusually fme array of material was on hand to try out for the girls' bas-
ketball team when the call was issued on January 10. The veterans who were
present were: Ethlyn Sayre, Naomi Marks, Eunice Thomas. Wilma Hall, Milu
dreth Shilt, Lura Burdick, and Helen Ring. The new candidates were: Lenora

Echo Van Horn, Marian Brown, Helen Holmes, Vivian Lovaas, and Ruth Paul.
The first win was registered at the-expense 0f the Franklin Gardens team of
Janesville, 24 to 15. Milton's success was due to superior team-work. The Sayre-
Whittlesey pass-work and pivoting in the forward section completely baffled all
the efforts of the opposing guards. The entire team played well. Sayre, Whittle-
sey, Thomas, Burdick, Ring and Shilt, composed the starting lineup, and W inch,
Hall, Holmes, Wood, Lovaas, and Paul also saw action.
The second victory was scored against the Janesville Independents, a team
composed of the selected stars of Janesville. The Milton coeds gained the sub-
stantial lead of 20 t0 6 during the first half, and Coach Rowbotham gave all the
substitutes a chance during the second frame. The latter, of course, were out-
played, but Milton came out ahead, 28 to 24.
The Beloit Y. W. C. A. furnished the opposition for the third game, the
Milton coeds winning, 16 to 10. Ethlyn Sayre scored 12 0f the 16 points made
by the Brown and Blue. The game was hard-fought, the locals just managing
by superior teamwork to keep the lead.
The final game was the first intercollegiate womanTs basketball game in the
history of Milton College. The Mt. Morris coeds were defeated 20 to 13 in this
battle which was played on the M ilton fioor, the sole attraction of the evening.

The prospects for coed basketball for the 1928-29 season were as bright as
they were the year before. Lura Burdick was the only hrst-string player to be
lost by graduation. The veterans on hand for the hrst practice included: Helen
Ring, Ethlyn Sayre, Eunice Thomas tcaptainl, Mildreth Shilt, Helen Holmes,
Wilma Hall, Ruth Paul, Lenora Babcock, Dorothy Winch, and Ila Johanson.
Among the new members of the squad were: Evelyn Bienfang, Floy Clarke, Le-
nore Stillman, Violet Serns, and Marion Palmiter. Practices were held more or
less regularly twice a week throughout the winter.
A resolution was passed by the faculty on January 7, 1929, allowing the co-ed
team to play a maximum of three games each season on foreign floors. This was
an innovation, for previously coed teams could compete only at Milton. Some dif-
ficulty was encountered in scheduling games, however, so only three games were
played, all of them being at home.
Two games were against the old rivals, the Parker Pens. The score of the
first tilt was 26 to 23 in favor of Milton. The Sayre-Holmes combination worked
with the same speed and precision as the Sayre-Whittlesey forward combination of
the year before. Eunice T homas and Evelyn Bienfang played well at center, and
the guard zone was amply provided for, with Ring and Shilt protecting it.
The second meeting was a repetition of the first with the score standing at
18 to 14. In a fast and close tilt, the Milton girls sustained their first defeat in
two years at the hands of the Madison Y. W. C. A., 16 to 14. The game was
the best that has been seen on the local floor in years. The visitors were small.
but extremely fast and evidently knew basketball up and down. The Milton girls,
on the other hand, excelled in team-play. The score see-sawed all the way, and
M ilton was ahead, 12 to 8, at one time. but they met with trouble in the last few
minutes of play.

The M Club was formed in the fall of 1926 for the purpose of placing Milton
athletics on a sound fmancial basis, to further clean athletics, and the school spirit,
to encourage men of athletic ability as well as others to attend Milton College, and
to be, in all activities. boosters and not knockers. Only men who have received
a major award for some athletic sport are eligible for membership in this organ-
For a year or two, meetings were held regularly every month in the training
room at the Gymnasium. The program consisted usually of a game of kittenball,
then a discussion of problems concerning the athletic department. and finally. re-
freshments. Recently, however, attendance has dwindled until an attempt is no
longer made to hold regular meetings. Only when a group of new letter winners
appear does the ghost walk once more. Then a rollicking initiation program is
arranged and a good time is had by practically everybody.
The M Club at the present time has about fifteen members. Those now in
office are :

: .59' side until about the middle of April. About fifteen candidates turned out
:46" , at that time, and began intensive work for the first meet which was
scheduled for April 27 with Beloit College. Facilities for track were
better than usual. the industry of the students and coach having provided 21 cinder
track and new hurdles.
As was to be expected the Miltonmen were snowed under by Beloit's strong
squad, the score being 80 to 45. Milton did comparatively well in both track and
field events, winning Five first places, five seconds. and five thirds. Hull copped
the broad jump with a leap of 19 feet, 8 inches. DeLong took the shot-put, XVilcox
the high jump, Bevens the 440-yard dash, and Austin the 220-yard hurdles. The
best record was made by Rigby of Beloit, who tossed the javelin 169 feet, 8 inches.
The following men took part in the meet: Bevens, Hull, Austin, DeLong, Wilcox,
Meyer, Stewart, Burdick, Stokstad, Trevorrah, Agnew, Watson, Walsh, VVerfal,
A hotly contested track and field meet at Mt. Morris resulted in victory for
the Milton thinclads, 73 to 53. The Brown and Blue won first places in nine of
the 14 events and took a slam in the high jump. Hull, Austin, and XValsh led the
scoring for Milton, with 11, 10, and 9 points, respectively.
Milton was badly defeated in a dual meet with Carroll College on May 15.
The locals won five flrst places, including the half mile relay, but lacked reserve
strength to take seconds and thirds. The locals were particularly strong in the
dashes, Hull winning the quarter mile and furlong dashes, Walsh the century,
and the relay team, Hull, Bevens, Austin and Walsh, showing up the mountaineers
in a beautiful half mile relay. Austin turned in the best performance of the day
by shading Lomas, the Carroll captain, in the 220-yard low hurdles in 27 seconds
The locals suffered the worst defeat of the season at the hands of KTChick"
Agnew's Whitewater aggregation, the final score being 92 to 34. The Purple
scored five shut-outs, four in the field events, and one in the distances. Hull and
Austin starred for Milton with 11 and 13 points. Austin took both the low and
high hurdles in fast time, but to Hull belongs the glory of the day. Trailing

rolled around in spite of the fact that Wells and Burrlick were the only
letter men available from the squad of the year before. As a result of
a the tryouts which were held on the first of May, Burdick, Watson, Wells.
Stewart and Van Horn won places on the team and were rated 1. 2, 3, 4, and 5 for
playing purposes. A schedule of five meets had been arranged. including matches
with Marquette University, Mt. Morris College, and Whitewater S. T. C.
The first meet'was a seven match affair with Marquette on the Milwaukee
courts, May 3. The result was a 6 to 1 victory for the Milwaukeans. Burdick
won the only match for Milton. defeating Houghton 6e"3, 7e5. Watson suc-
ceeded in taking three games from Caspar, the state collegiate champion. Inex-
perience was evident as the Miltonites went down to defeat.
After this match, Van Horn was ruled ineligible for further competition due
to scholastic difficulties. Luckily, all the remaining meets were to consist of six
matches which require only four men.
The tennis team made a clean sweep of its matches at Mt. Morris College
on May 7, winning 6 to O. The toughest match of the day was the doubles between
the Watson-Stewart and Woy-Bean combinations. W atson and Stewart won out,
7e5, 7g5. Watson won 13 games in succession to defeat Bean, 7-5, M0, in
his singles contest.
On May 14, both the Mt. Morris men's team and coed team were entertained
on the Milton courts. The menls match was much closer than that of the week
before. lVells was defeated by Samsel, 44, 1e6. and the doubles combination
of Wells and Burdick lost, 3e6. 3e6, bringing the score down to 4 to 2.
The local coed team was defeated, 5 to 1. Virginia VVhittlesey defeated Miss

that between Bernice Maxson and Miss Hill, played through the heat of the noon
hour. Miss Maxson lost the hrst set 3e6. came back to irk out a 10-8 victory
in the second only to tire in the third and lose 3e6. Virginia Whittlesey, Marian
Brown, Ila Johanson, and Bernice Maxson composed the Milton team.
Two matches were played against Whitewater, and both resulted in victories
for the Purple by the score of 6 to 4. Burdick met and vanquished his rival Habel
in the first match, but was defeated in the return contest.

By a decision of the Athletic Council, there is 110 program of intercollegiate
athletics officially sponsored by the College this spring. A three-dollar increase in
the student tax had been voted by the Student Body for the primary purpose of
paying off the standing debt of the athletic department. In View of this fact it
was thought unwise to incur a further indebtedness with the non-divitlend paying
spring sports, but to concentrate on removing that indebtedness.
This does not mean that there are no spring sports at Milton. In the First
place. a heavy program of intramural athletics is being carried out. The interest
of the students has swung from track back to baseball during the past year. Ten-
nis also has come into its own. In former years, tennis was very popular as an
intramural sport among the women as well as the men and tournaments were
frequent and popular. This spring, with three improved clay courts at the disposal
of the students, is witnessing a revival of that interest.
A second course is open to those athletes who would like to have intercol-
legiate athletics. Although the College will not finance such a program, the tennis
men or track men are free to hold contests with other schools if they will do so
at their own expense.
Several years ago, the custom was inaugurated of holding a Campus Improve-
ment Day each spring, at which time the students all aided in the effort to clean
up the Campus. At flrst, only one afternoon each spring was devoted to this work.
But in the spring of 1927, the policy was changed and a full day was set aside for
At about the same time, it became the habit for students to work on the
athletic held at least a part of this day, which came to be known as Campus Day.
The students were divided into groups, part working on the Campus and part on
the athletic held. The work on the field was principally of a grading nature, the
task being to lower the high points and raise the lower points.
Last fall, upon the petition of the students, another day for working on the
athletic field was granted, and a great deal was accomplished on that day. As a
result of these efforts by the students, the field presents a far different appearance
than it did a few years back. One part is now approximately level and other parts
are rapidly being put into shape as each day of work becomes a part of history.
It is hoped that within the course of a few years, with the students working en-
masse one or two days each year, that the field will be in condition for intercol-
legiate competition as the Milton College Home Athletic Field.

Freshman debating in Milton College has not been a major activity in recent
years. The two teams engage in only one debate each year, and the members re-
ceive very little coaching. It is maintained, however, not so much for itself as for
varsity debating later on. Many of our varsity debaters got their start as members
of the Freshman teams. Last year Freshman debating fell Hat on account of
the failure to have Freshman debating last year.
Two teams were chosen for the annual dual debate with Carroll College this
year and some very good material seemc assured. This is encouraging for varsity
work next year.
The dual F reshman debate with Carroll College has been a tradition in Milton
for several years. Two years ago. it was extended to include Beloit. in a triangle.

For 21 great many years 0 satory in Milton College was entirely voluntary,
being conducted by the various cheums, both at regular meetings and at public
sessions. But about the time that William C. Daland came to Milton as presi-
dent. the college began; to require two orations of each student as a requirement
for graduation. This was done because the faculty felt that oratory had a dis-
tinct value to students and because oratory as a voluntary effort was losing ground
in the lyceums. These orations were original and were delivered in the lyceums
and the winners of each lyceum contest competed in the Enal oratorical contest.
Two years ago, the requirement was Changed to one oration.
While Milton College has for many years had oratory in some way. it is only
recently that it has been represented in any intercollegiate contests. During the
school year 1922-23, Milton College became a member of the State Intercollegiate
Oratorical Association and has continued its membership in that organization to the

UNDERSTAND that this issue of the Fides is to be somewhat historic
concerning the College; and now I am asked to contribute something in
the way of reminiscence. I was not here very long as a student. The
next year after my discharge from the Civil War service. in 1865. I was
married and went to teaching in a pioneer roadside school. I liked the work very
well, but soon found my knowledge of wlut was in school books was so limited
that my teaching seemed to me much like a mere burlesque; so I managed after
a time to come to Milton, in the fall ternTof 1872, to see if I could learn something.
Pres. W. C. VVhitford then seemed to me a very fountain head of knowledge, and
I soon came to think a great deal of him. To me he was quite inspiring, and I
tried to get all I could from him, even though some of the students who knew him
well used to smile at some of his peculiarities of manner and speech. Those pecul-
iarities were but tokens of his striking personality.
Though some of the young people made, on the side, a hit of fun of certain
notions of his, they fully respected him, It is not much credit to any one to have
little or nothing in the way of personality;that which makes him just what he is.
President Whitford was called everywhere and all the time. tIThe Elder? He
had in him a saving sense of humor. I once heard this story about himi-not in just
these words, but in substance:
One dark night, for some reason or other, the boys gathered in the Chapel to
plan a trick upon The Elder. As quietly as they could they carried all the seats,
even the desk and the chairs from the platform in front where members of the
faculty were wont to sit during Chapel exercises, down the hack stairs and out upon
the back lawn. There they set them in order as they had been up in the Chapel,
with the Good Book in its place upon the desk. Having done this. they went hack
to their beds. When morning came and the first hell rang to call them to Chapel
exercises all the students came with their usual decorum to their accustomed seats,
and in silence awaited the arrival of The Elder. As they saw him coming along
the path they wondered what next. Upon his arrival he went to his seat at the
desk and quietly took in the situation. Then he graciously bade them "Good Morn-
mg. He could he a good sport.
Having clone this he looked at his watch. then observed quietly that as it was
time for the Chapel service the seats should be where they belonged, whereupon he
took up his own chair, went through the back door and up the stairway. Upon
this hint everyone took up what he could carry and the procession followed The
Elder. In a few minutes all were in place and the chapel exercises duly observed.

All now living who were in the College in those days could not, if they Would,
forget our music man, Dr. Jairus M. Stillman. He, too, had peculiarities enough
to give him a marked personality. It is said that persons gifted in some particular
direction are likely to become a bit peculiar, especially gifted musicians. Dr.
Stillman was both soul and body a musician. While all laughed about cere
tain oddities Of his. we certainly admired him for his enthusiastic, i11-
spiring leadership. He was at his best when leading a big choir through
some Fine anthem he had recently composed, and with the audience spell-bound by
his manner of bringing out musical expression. He established here in Milton :1
high standard of music for both the College and the community.
We can well remember the bright little dog he adopted and their real compan-
ionship. And then Jairus had another outside interestLhis little gentian farm. At
that time the roots of the gentian plant brought a big price because of certain medical
qualities. Dr. Grace Crandall tells me that much of it is now used in China. For
some time he gave much attention to the cultivation of this plant.
Dr. Stillman had a certain bit of experience that was for a time, though amus-
ing to some of the students, painful to him. He practiced with some of the boys
shooting at a mark. For this. he got for himself a little revolver. Once when prac-
ticing shooting with some of the students, this gun went off unexpectedly and the
ball went through his foot, because of which he laid up sometime for repairs.

That delectable play, Twelfth Night, 50 full of human emotions, throbbing
with love and bubbling over with wit and humor, lives and breathes for the third
time on Milton's time-worn, Shakespearean stage. And what a charming play to
see, when presented as it was at this time. It dispelled our fears and cares and
gave us laughter in generous doses. It brought the joys and thrills of youth to the
aged. It smoothed out our furrowed brows and sent us home with the song of the
revelers on our lips:
HChristmas comes but once a year
And therefore we'll be merry."

N the fall of 1927 there came upon the Campus, a new project. There
were many who anticipated something unusual and they were not disape
pointed. For as a result of the Class of Dramatic Art, Milton saw what
is probably the most powerful play it has ever witnessed. With its success
a most valuable precedent has been set.
It is the aim of each Class of Dramatic Art to present a play, planning its
own stage, lighting effects, make-ups. and costumes and building its own scenes.
Channing Pollockis HEnemyii was the play for 1928. Here we see the terror
and futility of war more strongly by viewing it from the Austrian viewpoint.
We realize that war is just as bloody and vicious for another country as it is for
us. When we hear the same stories told of Americans as, during the war, we
heard of our enemies, we see how much of war propaganda must, of necessity, be

, The Future
N the preceding pages of this edition of the 1929 Fides we have been con-
cerned principally with the past and the present of Milton College. Since
we have thus passed over in retrospect some of the elements that have
made possible the present we now have some basis upon which to build
our hopes for the future. We have seen the manner in which Milton College by a
process of evolutionealmost at times miraculousegrew out of the little one-story
building located dOwn by the park into a Hourishing institution with hundreds of
prosperous and happy alumni. We have seen the problems that have been met
and conquered by the supporters of Milton College. We have seen that in spite
of everything Milton College has gone on and on and on.
What cause, then have we for pessimism when we view the future? Rather
we have every cause for optimism and the highest hopes. Experience and history
have shown us that the friends of Milton have never failed to, rally in the crisis,
and so Milton College has gone on and on.
In the past, the College grew little by little. First thereiwas one little wooden
building, now there are five buildings located on a spacious Campus. First there
was one teacher, now there is an efficient faculty of twenty instructors. First the
property of the school was valued at $400 and now the endowment alone amounts
to $300,000 and the total plant is estimated at $463,000. Thus has been the in-
crease and growth of the school at Milton in the past eighty-hve years.
And now a new stage has been reached. Milton College has come to the
point where more and better equipment are absolutely essential to further progress.
As has been shown, this is nothing new. Crises of this nature have been met in
the past every time new buildings and equipment were necessary, and the problems
have always been conquered in some way.
It was eighteen years ago that the last building for Milton College was com-
pleted, and the time has arrived when the need for two more buildings is greatly
felt. Although the endowment fund has slowly and steadily been on the increase
during those eighteen years, the need has also been felt for a considerable increase
in the fund in order that Milton College may in the future more effectively do its
The plans for this increase in endowment and for increase in the number of
buildings is by this time common knowledge. It is hoped to realize $300,000 to
be devoted to endowment, and $200,000 to be devoted to new buildings, making
a total of $500,000 that is considered vitally necessary for an adequate future proa
gram of Milton College. The campaign for this amount was inaugurated in 1927
with the late Dr. Clarence D. Royse, vice-president of the College, in charge. It
is well-known that in the Milton-Milton Junction campaign during the spring of
1927 the people of the tWo villages subscribed something more than $102,000 to
the good cause. During the following summer, $25,000 more was secured from
Milton friends in Battle Creek. and the Janesville drive resulted in something
over $15,000. During the past year, Pres. A. E. XVhitford has devoted almost his
entire time to work on the endowment drive. He has made trips into the East
and into the West, meeting the friends of Milton on every hand, and reports con-
siderable success as a result of these endeavors. '

THE NEW LIBRARY
As has been pointed out. never have the friends of Milton failed in the crisis.
Always, when the necessity has been felt, the supporters of the College have rallied
and have overcome every obstacle. In view of this fact, and the fact that in the
neighborhood of $200,000 has already been subscribed to the campaign, it would
seem that we are safe in assuming that the necessities of the present and of the
future will be met in due time, as have been those of the past. And so now let us
glance for a moment at the Milton College of the future.
One of the proposed new buildings is to be a library which will be located on
the east slope of the Campus south of VVhitford Memorial Hall. Its dimensions
will be 79 by 98 feet. This building will include on the first floor, two large read-
ing rooms and a room where stacks of books may be kept. The capacity of this
room will be 40,000 volumes. F our rooms will be provided on the second floor
for the use of the literary societies and for lecture purposes. There will also be
space for two additional class rooms in the basement. It will be noted that the
removal of both the library from its present crowded quarters and the three literary
societies from the VVhitford Memorial Hall will permit the expansion to a consid-
erable extent of the three science departments. The architectls drawing of the new
library building is here shown.

THE NEW DORMITORY
Back in 1857, the need for a dormitory for Milton College was felt and the
result was the present Goodrich Hall, which for a time was used for both men
and women. Later, in 1863. the Gents, Hall was acquired and served as a men's
dormitory for many years, while Goodrich Hall was given over to the women
students. This dormitory is still occupied by women students, but the Gentsl Hall
is no more. The need again arises, therefore, for dormitory accommodatitms for
The plan is to erect a new building for the women and to turn over Goodrich
Hall to the men for their use. The new dormitory for women will have accommo-
dations for seventy-flve women and will be modem to the last degree. There will
be three stories and a basement. On the first floor near the front of the building.
good-sized parlors will be provided for receptions. The basement will be used for
the dining room and kitchens, which will be ample for all banquets held by the
students of the College, and for a student boarding Club.

THE FUTURE MILTON COLLEGE
And now that the Campus of Milton College in the future may be visualized
at a glance, we have provided a map, of which the general plan is taken from that
drawn by G. Everett Van Horn in 1926. On this map, the Campus will be found
to be considerably enlarged and there will also be found many improvements and
additions to the general scheme of things. To us, this outline of the future Milton
College looks good, and we are certain that every alumnus will agree with us on
We have attempted in the last few pages to give something of a composite
impression of what Milton College will be like in the future. The general impres-
sion here presented has been gathered from several sources which would seem to
indicate that we. the present students. are not the only ones who have high hopes
and aspirations for the future of Milton College. We believe in Milton College as
an efficient and influential institution of higher learning, entirely worthy of our
greatest sacrifice and of our highest hopes and aspirations for future success.
There is no doubt that reader and writer will unite in the fervent hope and hrm
conviction that the future Milton College will contain not only those elements of
improvement and betterment depicted here, but also many others at present unfore-
seen by human mind. a

What Are the Uses of the Phonograph ?eThis Article Will Tell You.
'4 N a late number of the North American
Ni Review Mr Thomas A. Edison, the
g inventor of the phonograph, has under
't' the above title, given a statement of
many of the uses to which this instrument may
be put; but he has failed to record many of the
useful purposes which this latest product of
his imagination may be made to serve.
It will doubtless be but a short time before
:radles with phonograph attachments will be in
the market. What a boon this will be to many
a household, in which the head of the family,
in his efforts to keep a restless infant quiet,
adopts a course of treatment which ruins his
voice, his temper, his health, and robs the other
members of the family of their needed rest;
but without any apparent effect upon the young-
ster than to make him yell the louder.
With this boon to suffering humanity in
the home, the infant may be rocked to rest, the
phonograph attachment adjusted with the pho-
nographic sheet in place, bearing the impress
of a half-dozen lullaby songs. carefully selected
with reference to their soothing effect. The
fond parents may then retire for the night, with
the consciousness that the first struggles of the
child will detach the weight which sets the cylin-
der in motion, and the sweet music will at once
soothe to rest the troubled spirit. By a come
bination of ingenious devices. which render the
machine perfectly automatic in its m0vements,
the weight may be so controlled that the first
kick will start that sweet song, "Hush, my
babe lie still and slumber? etc., to be followed
by HOld Zip C0011," and "I Want to be an
Angel " The advantage of this variety is ob-
vious. If something soothing and pathetic fails
to produce the required result, it is evident that
another variety of music is needed, and it is
produced at once. To produce a more sudden
and striking effect, stanzas from a great variety
of serious, sentimental and patriotic selections
may be sandwiched, and with an occasional air
from the opera thrown in, the combination can-
not fail to satisfy the most exacting taste.
At the end of the hrst half-hour, the weight
is arrested in its downward movement and the
music ceases; if quiet has been restored, well
and good; if the struggles continue the weight
slips another cog, and the phonograph gets in
its work again. The entertainment may be
varied by introducing at intervals throughout
the selections, a few of those soothing sentences,
which mothers know how to use so effectively,
these of course being followed by whatever a
careful study of the childys peculiarities would
seem to warrant.
lt is conhdently expected that a great variety
of phonographic sheets will be on sale, from
which such selections can be made as the vary-
ing disposition of the subject requires. Families
living in the same neighborhood may exchange
music when the infants seem to demand a change
But the uses of. the phonograph do not stop
here. Not alone is it to soothe the infant while
in its mewling stage; but it will follow to cheer
and encourage him when he shall enter upon
that more critical state, the hair-oil period of his
existence, when he begins to give attention to
his upper lip, worry about the size of his feet,
and to exchange sweet billet rloux with the girls.
Then. will the little two-for-a-cent phonograph
which may be attached to his girl's picture make
with it a combination that will prove to him ua
thing of beauty and a joy forever." or at least
until he falls in love with another girl.
By pressing a concealed spring it may be
made to murmur. "Thee. only thee," "My own
sweet onef' etc., in tones that will entrance the
ear, while the eye is charmed by the result of
the photographerls art. To many fond souls
who are unable to meet more than three or four
evenings a week this will prove a blessing in-
For devotional purposes, this instrument is
destined to take precedence even of the contri-
bution box, and, in fact, to almost entirely re-
move the necessity for entering that time hon-
The churches too poor to secure the services
of a fashionable choir and an eloquent minister,
and too intensely religious to worship without
them can procure a pulpit phonograph which
will reproduce with marvelous exactness the
choicest sermons 0f the ablest pulpit oratorls
and the most brilliant performances of the high
salaried church choir.

Troubles With a Diary
By A. Jed.
Famous Author Reveals Diary-Keeping Experiences.
iii REATHES there a boy with soul so
dead he never had it in his head to
soar aloft with wings?
I may be afflicted with a deranged
condition of the flues of the memory, and the
smoke of forgetfulness may have so bewildered
the ocular activities of recollection as to invali-
date my judgment; but it is my conviction that
all other sources of happiness combined were
as nothing to infinity, compared
schemes for flying.
In the absence of better authority, I had
devised a logic of my own. I formulated a
syllogism that ran thus: Birds are bipeds, with
wings and feathers; birds are the only bipeds
that can fly; therefore, only bipeds with wings
and feathers can Hy. From which it follows
that any biped could Hy, if furnished with wings
No matter about the details. I didn't com-
plete the combination; and my schemes tor
annihilating distance and sucking eaglesl eggs
were nipped in the bud. But. like Mr. Caesar,
I was ambitious; I thirsted for fame; I had
eaten the codflsh of vanity, and felt that I must
quench my thirst at the fountain of distinction.
But how? A happy thought struck me. I
would keep a journal; that was what I would
do. Then, when the folks were looking over
my old papers, they would run across it, and
read it to neighbors who dropped in and didnlt
show any disposition to drop out. Or they
might have it published in some paper, no matter
if it did ruin the editor, my fame would be
abroad in the land. Accordingly, on the 28th
day of June, 18--, I made the following
entry: III am persuaded that the best way to
fix important events in the mind and label
them, so to speak, is to jot them down while
fresh in the memory. It seems to me that a
journal, carefully kept, can hardly fail to
strengthen the memory; and, if persisted in,
must inspire a confidence in my ability to ad-
here to a purpose?
This has been an eventful day. Went to
school. as usual, in the morning, and got a
thrashing for not staying after school yester-
day. At recess George Smith said he had found
a bumble-bee's nest down in the hickory grove;
and to fix the place in his memory, he had stuck
a stick in the hole where the bees went in. We
all said we would go down and clean em out.
We went; we saw; we scampered; one lit upon
my ear and poked his stinger through. The
boys say they will finish robbing that nest t0-
morrow. I never did like bumble-beesy honey
very much. and guess I will stay in at recess
and study the multiplication table. I wish I
had put my ears in my pockets. I don't recall
the circumstance that prevented my pressing
forward in the work so auspiciously begun.
lint the summer roses came, and went and
came, and not a line was added to my journal.
It was at the close of a beautiful day in au-
tumn; the sun had sunk to rest in his select
apartments of gold, and the western sky was all
aglow, as if, in honor of the distinguished guest,
a bonfire of roses had been kindled; when I
returned triumphantly from the field, where I
had been working manfully. The sun of morn
looked down upon nine fair shocks of corn;
the moon of eve rose up and saw not one. It
was a triumph. I was proud of the work I
had done; but prouder to think I had won a
wager from an uncle from the Keystone State,
and apples and candies were to be my reward.
I made a note of this in my journal, and was
sick for four days from the effects of trying
to prove to my esteemed relative that I appre-
ciated his kindness.
any combination of Circumstances that would
beguile me into another attempt at keeping a
I can hardly conceive of

Things are not because they are.
Perversity of Things
By Perry Stile
It is perversity that makes them so,
according to this disciple of Shopenhauer.
$247; 924T was the frequent complaint of Mrs.
$25 $3 Grummidge that things would go con-
;$?ig trary with her under all circumstances,
V "V and while it is not likely that many
persons take the matter so much to heart as
Mrs. Grummidge did, yet most of us perhaps,
are at times impressed with a sense of perverse-
ness in life and things. which we are not al-
ways quite able to reason ourselves out of. It
may he said that impressions of this kind have
no better foundation in general than in the par-
ticular case of Mr. Peggotyls housekeeper. On
that point let those douht who will. For my
part I am inclined to justify her grumbling
and dissatisfaction as well as that of humanity
I hold that things happen in many cases
where they have no business to and out of mere
perversity, and that there is no explaining or
accounting for such things on rational grounds
and no justifying them on any grounds what-
From this point of View I am able at once
to characterize and dispose of a great variety
of perplexing facts, without any attempt to
understand or explain their causes, and some-
what as the Irishman did the slowness of his
horse. uItis not sick or tired ye are, its con-i
trarinessfi The hearings of this theory as well
as its success, no doubt, depend a good deal up-
on the application of it. It is opportunist, as
it were. Let it take a man as he is about re-
tiring from the successful pursuit of his best
hat as it whirled down on the wind just out of
his reach on a muddy day, and he is a captive
at once. No argument is needed. It is also a
taking theory with the housekeeper whose bread
without cause or provocation declines to "rise"
and whose watched pot will never boil when it
ought. With boys, it is the only acceptable
theory. Whether this is owing to their pro-
pensity to stuh their toes or to drop their bread
always on the buttered side, I will not stop to
inquire. At all events it is true that in this as
in most things some special experience is needed
to commend new views to general acceptance.
Facts alone will not do in any case. Knowledge
and experience together make a full team, but
either one pulling alone only breaks something.
Page One H undred Sixty-nine
In this case, however, there is no lack of facts
which have borne the test of experience, and
it is time they were toggled together and hitched
on to a theory as the custom is.
The very first appearance things put on to
us is perverse. How often are we admonished
that it is not safe to trust to appearances; that
things are not what they seem; that all is not
gold that glitters; in short, that appearances are
altogether deceitful. It is true enough that
there is no telling from' the looks of a frog
how far he will jump and that appearances often
seem well calculated to lead us astray, and yet
there is no deceit about it. Neither is there any
reason for it. . Appearances are simply per-
verse. Why should they differ from the reality
at all? It is an undesigned and unreasonable
state of things, a clear perversity.
As with appearances, so with things in gen-
eral. They have. at the least, a well recognized
knack of perversity. as may be shown by numer-
ous instances. We have the authority of the
old saying, tlthat misfortunes never come sing-
ly," and in literature the idea is sometimes car
ried still further. In the Raven and in Hia-
watha, for instance, they are made to come in
Hocks, at least, if not in arithmetical progres-
sion. I am satisfled that if they ever do come
singly it is out of perversity alone, which keeps
my theory intact.
So the saying, "It never rains but it pours?
XVhile it recognizes the well-known perversity
of the weather, it does not go quite far enough.
In weather and worldly affairs generally all
signs fail in a dry time, and it is at such times,
just when the rain ought to pour that it does
not. This case alone would come near to prov-
ing my theory as times go.
I am aware that in these days any theory,
scientific or otherwise, that includes everything
on the earth and under the earth is a small af-
fair, not worth much attention, and if mine did
not include animate, as well as inanimate things,
I should despair of doing much with it. But
just here is its strong point. I should lay it
down as the First law of perversity in matter
that it increases in the direct ratio of anima-
tion. Take the ease of weeds. Weeds hardly
appear at all in wild land, but once cultivate it
and they spring up and multiply and replenish
the garden patch until one can hardly wedge in
The insects are still worse. There is the
mosquito. Malaria only gives him a good appe-
tite. Nothing suits a Hy so well as to be walk-
ing about upside down. Insects are the shortest
lived of all creatures and yet they are of such
perverse nature as to still continue the most
numerous of all.
What but perversity could ever have en-
dowed the crab with his absurd preference for
traveling backwards contrary to all the rest of
creation? or the moth with its insane tendency to
singe itself to death for the fun of it? or could
so constitute the apossum that it is his idea to
lie down helplessly at the very time he ought to
fight or run.
These are only extreme instances. i There is
a tendency to perverseness in all the animals.
Try to drive an animal and witness his frantic
efforts to go in every possible direction but the
one desired, or try the effect of ordinary and
reasonable incentives on a balky horse. Is
there any way of accounting for such cases
except on the theory of original perversity?
Man himself is full of perverse tendencies.
Where else could he get his unaccountable fa-
culty for locking the stable door just after the
horse is stolen instead of before, or his invet-
erate belief and assertion that he told you so
whenever anything happens unexpectedly.
Put a man down in a strange country with-
out a guide and two to one he will travel around
and around and never get out of a circle. Or,
take him in the midst of a crowd and let a board
break or some one cry fire and he becomes the
victim of a senseless panic, and' is as ungovern-
able as a runaway horse.
Men have what they call courage, but let
the bravest of them run into a nest of angry
bumble bees and see what will happen. What
else but the most confirmed perversity can ac-
count for the enormous consumption of tobacco
or the latest style of bonnet? One might Find
numerous illustrations of man's perversity in
literature as well as in life. Take. as an ex-
ample, one of the greatestethe character of
Hamlet. There are those who think they can
read and explain it all as easily as did Rosen-
crantz and Guildenstern, and do not see that
mystery still laughs in their faces. I attribute
the vagaries of Hamlet, not to insanity or any
reasonable cause, but to a simple perversity, not
more than half understood by himself; and I
maintain that this explanation twhich is no ex-
planation at alll is the only one possible to con-
There is also a suspicion of perversity lin-
gering about the character of Iago. otherwise
all but incredible. On the whole it is clear that
many things are wholly perverse, and that there
are numerous views of perversity running
through nature and life, something like veins
of ore through the rocks, or like the cold chills
running up and down the hack of an ague pa-
tient. Whether there can be traced any philo-
sophical explanation of such things would be
a curious inquiry. Possibly the evolutionists
might Find their origin in the simpler forces of
nature or the properties of matter. We know
that action and reaction are equal, but whether
this atomic tendency has anything to do with
the human propensity to hit back when hit is not
so clear. Neither is it quite certain, though
probable enough, that marriage and divorce
might be the ultimate result of simple attrac-
tion and repulsion, and that the inertia of matter
may reach its highest development in the stub-
hornness of the mule. It might even he specti-
lated whether a person hopelessly lost and wane
dering in a circle is not a curious case of rever-
sion of the first principles of planetary motion.
Taking a wider view of the matter. one
might be led to question whether a large part
of our present civilization may not he a mere
perversion. How much of modern life will
square with the letter and spirit of its best
moral precept, the golden rule?
Are the records and institutions of this age
more enduring than those of Egypt and Greece?
Will our paper literature survive where the
stone tablets of the Assyrians perished? Maybe
our best claim to continuance rests upon the
fact that nature tolerates perversions. Maybe
she will see to it that our dime novels and our
political caucuses outlast the pyramids.
Let us not confine so promising a theory
within any pent up Utica. We have seen that
nature abounds in perversities, may it not be
that nature herself is a perversity? It is not
quite settled but that the physical universe rep-
resents waste of force, rather than conservation
Does it also represent the destruction of life
rather than its assertion and preservation? If
so it be, then the whole creation can be only a
perversity. Empty space would be the true
condition of the universe, and unconsciousness,
as taught by Schopenhaur, would lie the natural

and desirable state of existence. All things
would cease to be except a vacuum and death.
It is true that death is universal and, that it is
forever within the reach of all, while life alas,
stays not nor returns in answer to the deepest
wish or sorest need. Death itsellc can hardly be
a perversion, but then, death is not so much an
affair of this world as of the next, the undiscov-
ered country. where we are told no perversity

' oi HINKING is not dreaming. The
world is full of dreamers. A few men
do most of its thinking. Thinking is
manufacturing. It is taking mental
tools and hammering and Filing and moulding
and shaping, until ideas have grown into fully
developed realities of the brain, with dimensions
and cleraly-markecl outlines. The reason that
there are not more thinkers, is because thinking
is work; it wears away tissue and muscle. It
is tiresome. It requires time and purpose. Men
can dream while they sleep; to work they must
be awake. Dreaming is tearing away the flood-
gate and allowing the Hood to pour through;
if anything remains, it is only drift-wood that
may Chance to hang on the way. Minds fill with
drift-wood because they are not thinking. Think-
ing is measuring chances, weighing principles,
watching the operation of law; it is a process
of creeping upon things and taking them by
surprise before they have time to get away.
A thinker is a hunter. He must be satis-
fied with small daily fare and often sees his
game fly before he has time to shoot. He must
have courage to face chasms, dark places, and
climb steep mountains. He must love solitude
on an outpost hidden in the rocks. And here is
the reason this age is not prolific of good think-
ers. It is an age of company, of travel, 01
theatre-going, of corporations and speculations.
Men live in crowds. It is a clay of double
houses. Too much man and not enough God.
Communion with nature is shut out. There are
no sparks because the Hint and steel are not
in contact. Men are following the college
drones ponying through life. Everybody wants
to ride. Going to the spring for water is out
of fashion. The spring must come up the hill.
We want to turn the faucet and have things
run out to our hands, the faucet must be on
casters that it may be convenient. For these
reasons most people are only sponges; they
live wholly by absorption and are like the thing
they touched last. They wait for things to
"turn up." but one day the only thing they
ever find turning up especially for them, is a
little sod in a little corner of the grave-yard,
and they are laid away, while the great multi-
tude, having never missed them, ask in wonder,

HAt about midnight, April 30. one wander-

in serenading and hanging May baskets, the
former being the incidental, the latter the main
object of the expedition?
nXNill certain young men of this college

they were there, innocently pelting the heads of
passers-by, two villains of the deepest dye
stealthily entered from the back way, quickly
mounted the stairs, took away the step ladder,
by which the fair ones had ascended, and has-

of $500 will be offered for the detection and

I protested loudly as my two companions
dragged me to the entrance of the IILoop the
Loop? I was hot and tired. Amusement
places always bore me, but this one was par-
ticularly distasteful. Thousands of feet kicked
up dust that choked my lungs, smarted my eyes,
and tickled my nose. The sickening smell of
hot dogs and hamburgers permeated the air. I
felt faint, and now ceasing to struU gle, I felt
myself being pushed and strapped into a car
on that horrible scenic railroad. There was a
screeching of gears. I felt myself suddenly
jerked forward. Then the car as suddenly
Iurched upward. I closed my eyes. Higher and
higher I went. I opened my eyes and looked
down. The squalid panorama of the amuse-
ment park whirled below. Then suddenly ev-
erything became black. and I felt myself plung-
ing downward. Would I never stop falling? I
saw in my mind the faces of my parents. my
childhood chums, and horned-like demons. I
saw the two friends who had put me on that
nightmare. The car seemed to suddenly slow
up. Then I felt it sliding slowly and noise-
I opened my eyes. I was on a road that
was set between Howered hedgerows. The sky
overhead was a deep, clear blue. I took a sec-
ond look at that road. It was smooth and black.
I reached my hand over the side of the car, and
felt of it. It was cool and hard, and like Haw-
less onyx, it stretched before me for miles and
miles. I looked again at the hedgerows. No,
I wasn't going slowly. I was being rushed past
them. I saw no houses about, and no people.
Was I on another planet? A thousand ques-
tions rushed to my mind. How had I gotten
there? Oh, that scenic railroad! Was the car
never going to stop? I put out my hand to
catch at the hedgerows. but they were out of
my reach. Should I jump? No, that were
folly, for at the speed at which I was traveling
I would be instantly killed. Then a horrible
fear seized my mind. The road was friction-
less! To go on like that forever! To rush on
and on until I died of slow starvation! And
thena-eveu after death. To rush on and on
until the last bit of me should crumble and dis-
sipate its dust into the air!
Suddenly three figures appeared before me.
They were straining hard against the front of
the car. Were they angels? They were clothed
in white. Yes, the car was slowing down! And
then they wereuit straining 011 it, they were
merely standing before it, and its motion had
almost ceased. And theneit wasn't a car at
all; it was a hospital cot. One of the angelsa
no, it was a nurse, heard my stir. She motioned
to the others and soon my parents were admit-
ted to the room, and then on tiptoe came my
two friends, and not like demons now, their
faces were beautiful as they smiled at me
through their tears.

"' fectly glorious. I sang blithely to my-
self as I shaved. I tripped gaily down
the stairs and sat before the radio to
get some good music, that I might have it as
I ate my breakfast. I found a good symphony,
and sat listening to it. Then in came Sue. my
landladyls peppy, blonde-haired daughter. "Oh,
get something hot," she exclaimed. and she
turned the dial to the wailing strains of a jazz
orchestra. IIOh, isnt that hot? Come on, dance

slapped me vigorously on the back. "Well,

NCE upon a time, far in the deep dark
Vt interior of Radium, lived Alpha Ray.
Now Alpha was very small, far too
small for the human eye to detect, and
yet he was a very much alive little fellow for
he played around all day among his friends.
Electron, Proton, and the rest of the boys of
Now Alpha was not only very much alive,
but he was sometimes had, and one day he
played a very mean trick. He went up to old
Grandpa Atom and he said. "For too many
years, people have believed you to be the small-
est division of matter. For too many years
you have held supreme honor, but I am smaller
than you and men shall know it." This made
Grandpa Atom exceedingly angry and he called
together all the atoms in the Molecule and held
one great trial, to see what should happen to
poor little Alpha. The decision was quickly
reached and Alpha was to be driven out.
Now poor Alpha was not really bad as was
shown by his great love for Beta who had the
same name as Ray, but was in no way related
to Alpha except by their mutual attraction,a
love. So when Alpha heard of his fate he went
quickly to Beta and said, W3 Beta, sweet Beta,
how can I leave you? I do not object to the
cold world, strange and unknown, that may
exist outside of Radium. I think it will be a
lark to hunt up other Protons and Electrons to
play with, to Find new Molecules in which to
live, and to fmd new magnetic poles at which
to vote. But my heart cries out in sorrow at
the thought of leaving you. I cannot live with-
out you, Beta! Come with me, and we shall
always live together? Beta loved Alpha with all
her heart, and little Betals heart was big for so
small a creature, so her love was big and she
replied, llAlpha, I will go anywhere, do any-
thing, just to be with you. XVe will go together.
Let us pledge our love, each with a gift for the
other. I shall give you a plus charge which
you are to keep always, and as long as you have
it. I shall be always near. It is my token of
love, so never part with it?
Then Alpha was filled with joy,awith a joy
which knew no bounds, and he took Beta ten-
derly in his arms and gave her six little elec-
tronic kisses, each of which caused ever so faint
a spark. Then he said, uBeta dear, you have
made me the happiest human being in all Radi-
um. IX'ith you near me, I defy all the Atoms in
this county of Molecule, or any other county of
Molecule, to take you from me. we will run
away tonight and find a way out of Radium into
a new continent. To pledge my love for you,
I give you a minus charge which you must
keep always. A plus charge strongly attracts
a minus charge, so we shall always be drawn
together. I will meet you at midnight in front
of your home and we shall away?
But old Grandpa Atom was not to be cheated
in his revenge for he had notified the sheriff
of every Molecule in Radium to kick poor Alpha
if he should appear in their Molecule. Every
road was posted and all people were notified 50
that when our lovers started out so quietly at
midnight they soon found a cold reception.
Everyone they met kicked them on toward the
boundary of Radium until at last on the very
brink, they were given one last Final kick which
sent them whirling together out into space.
Alpha clung to his plus charge and Beta to her
minus charge and together they went into a
Gradually their speed decreased and they
could look around some. They saw Hocks of
air Molecules fly by and called out to them,
but received no reply because they spoke another
language. This new world was light and airy
and good to be in and Alpha and Beta sailed
along in much glee. In the course of a long
time. a ten millionth of a second, perhaps, ta
ten millionth of a second is a long time to such
little folksy they landed on a new world. This
world had many doors or tunnels opening into
it so Alpha took Beta by the hand and led her
into the most inviting of these tunnels, and to
his surprise, he found a porter at the door. The
porter'looked very much like Beta,s father, for
he was an electron too. So Alpha said to him,
uWhere does this tunnel g0 ?" and the porter
replied. "It does1ft go any place, it stays right
here. But if you will follow it you will come to
the kings palace. The king is a cruel fellow.
He won't help anyone. It is reported that a
scientist of the world of men has been nego-
tiating with him for some time to obtain the
Page One Hundred Sevmtty-Jive
secrets of the structure of the inside of the
molecule, to find out what part each atom plays,
and what each one of us electrons does with our
time. The scientist has promised not to harm
us, but the king refuses the secret. It is reputed
that the scientist has built a large glass house
for our small metal world and has pumped out
most of the air so as to converse with our king
more readily, but still the king refuses to aid
"Yes," Alpha replied, "I remember that the
air molecules were far apart, but I came from
Radium. What country is this ?"
"This is Gold," the porter replied. "I re-
member now that our astronomer did report
a new body of Radium in the heavens above us.
So you are from Radium! Welcome to Gold !"
tlYour story about the scientists interests
me? said Alpha. HI am naturally a kind-heart-
ed fellow, and since 1 am not a subject of your
king I can tell the scientist how we electrons,
Protons, and Ions, live down here in our Mole-
cules, and I'll tell him how mean the Atoms are
too. But how do you talk to the scientists ?"
llHe has fixed up a signal tower far down
this next tunnel and if you go down to the
signal tower you will find a long needle. If
you get on one side of the needle with your
plus charge, and your girl friend on the other
side with her minus charge, the needle will
turn and you can signal your message to him.
Daily the king has sent me down there to signal
unintelligible messages, and every time he sig-
nals hack pleas for help. He says that he cannot
have a Masters Degree unless we tell him these
secrets. He has done everythingr to help us. and
since he pumped out the vicious air molecules
we have all been happy in our new home. The
air molecules used to continually pound our
boundaries and hurt any one who dared venture
forth. Now we are safe to go or come as we
please and we should help this scientist."
Beta turned to Alpha and there was just the
least little tear in her pretty eyes and she said.
llAlpha, let us help this scientist, and maybe
he will build us a pretty home? So away they
went together and they signaled all the secrets
to the scientist who sent back his happy thanks.
That night they slept in a large room in the
needle and the next day they received the mas-
sage. liI am to receive my degree. A11 thanks
to you. I have a wonderful home for you,
just climb on this wire and I'll take you there?
So Alpha and Beta were soon in their new
home which was the most exquisite little home
they had ever seen. Here was born to them a
lovely baby ray and they named him, Gamma
Ray. So the happy family, Alpha, Beta, and
Gamma Ray, lived happily ever after.
Method of Eating
Recorded by Anna Mosati
The following is taken from an article ap-
pearing in the ltJanesville Daily Gazette," Feb-
ruary 5th. 1950, discussing the recent change
in the method of eating.
llThe age in which we are livingr is truly
a marvelous one. Twenty years ago who could
have thought that one little tasteless pill taken
into the body at regular hours could give one
as much nourishment as does a square meall?
Statistics show that four out of five families
in the modern countries are discarding the old
method of eating and finding the new one much
more economical. Meat markets, grocery stores,
and bakery shops are gradually becoming ex-
tinct. In their places we find little shops, where
this new kind of food is sold. springing up in
all the cities and towns, and the factories which
keep these shops supplied increasing in size and
"The burdens of the housewife are being
decidedly lessened, for her household no longer
requires three well prepared meals a clay. No
kitchenettes are found in the up-to-date apart-
ments. The mother has more time to spend
upon the scientific training of her child.
llThe days of lliving to eaty are gone. The
way to a mans heart is no longer through his
stomach. Sooner or later the word lappetite'
will have no meaning whatever?

iil-lh airplane in which I was riding
' dropped noiselessly and suddenly down.
We had been flying several miles high
' and now we were descending perpen-
dicularly. Down we went from crystal-clear
blue to misty white, down again into the blue,
and I noted with a thrill of delight how the
shining gold-feathered wings of our light craft
were reflected in the dazzling sunlight. Above
us trailed the mist, and it reached its gossamer
ribbons down to us. I had a wild desire to
reach out and catch their illusive daintiness.
With a bump we were suddenly on the
ground. We had dropped into the hangar and
its roof folded down over our heads. We
walked slowly down marble columned corridors
and out the great doors of the hangar. I gazed
in wonder at the variable fairyland about
me. They had told me Miltonls Campus was
beautiful, but I had not prepared myself for
such beauty as I saw. The grass was a brilliant
green, and very closely clipped. A road wound
up the hill, and it was paved in mosaic. Across
this street was another hill, higher than the
one on which we stood, and on its highest point
stood a building, that for grace of architecture
sufrpassed anything I had ever seen before.
Slender, fluted columns held up its gold dome,
and six wings radiated from this part. I was
astounded that as immense a building could give
such an appearance of fragility. The pilot who
had brought me told me that it was the edifice
of the School of Music.
He conducted me further. On the slope be-
neath the Music Studio stood a great coliseum.
Beyond that were two large dormitories, the
Chapel, the Library and three large buildings
which my guide told me were devoted to scien-
tlf'lC research. Before the Chapel stood a huge
monument to the student who had allowed him-
self to be rotated to Mars. He is now, so I
was told, in constant communication with his
classmates. but they have not yet, on Mars.
the modern equipment for rotating him back.
My guide then promised to show me the
200. We entered the nearest wing of the hret
science building. There were many rare am-
mals there, most of which 1 had seen before
in larger cities of our state. There were hippos
and rhinos and even an elephant. Apart from
the others stood a rather large black and white
animal, with gentle, brown eyes, and horns that
were short, and not branched like those of the
tame deer that roam about in my home town. I
approached this strange animal, and began to
stroke its nose. It omitted an awful Ilmoo."
In alarm I jumped back, but my guide only
laughed. "Don't be frightened. That's only a
Ith, is it a cow ?" I asked. "Ilve often read
about them, but Ilve never really seen one. Our
ancestors used to have many of them, did they
not? What do they feed it ?ll
It is fed mostly on grass. Our synthetic
food seems to make it ill. Students are now
searching for treatises of past centuries that will
tell more about its diet."
We had now walked the entire length of
the wing, and found ourselves in the rotunda,
IIAre you hungry ?" the pilot asked. I replied
that I had not taken nourishment for two
We took an elevator, and went to the very
top of the building. We stepped into the
loveliest roof garden I have ever seen. Lux-
urious palms and abundantly Howering plants
were everywhere. Students lounged about on
low divans. We approached a sort of marble
counter, and a man behind it spoke to me in
perfect Latin. IlWhat would the young lady
like to eat ?" he asked. I gave my guide a ques-
tioning look. He laughed pleasantly, and gave
an order in Latin. Then we retired to a table.
uAren't you prepared to converse in Latin ?"
he asked. I told him that our public schools
had not yet introduced Latin in all the class-
rooms, and that they still clung to the old
English, but that I had been well tutored at
"Our students here speak only Latin, since
that is the nearest perfect language of all. Our
linguist majors are now making a study of it,
and we constantly introduce new words and
phrases, and correct old forms that have been
in misuse for centuries."
A girl in flowing robes brought tall, rare
colored glasses on a tray, and set them before
us. tIWhat is this ?" I asked in amazement.

Its dtawbacks, as indeed, what devices for econ-

which some speakers exert over their audience
will be wanting. We shall miss the elaborate

ing books during the sermon, together with the
absence of those charming conhdences between
the tenor and the soprano will seem somewhat
strange and awkward at first, and may perhaps
g1ve rise to the impression, that the sermon and
prayer are really intended to be regarded as
leading parts in the service, and not simply
thrown in to give the choir an opportunity to
rest and visit.
But while these drawbacks may seem some-
what serious at first thought they will, in a
measure, be compensated for by the additional
opportunities they will afford to members of
the congregation, to concentrate their attention
upon the thoughts uttered, or upon the general
appearance of those about them, according as

CLASSHHCAITON OF STUDENTS
Some students are regular and others are not so regular. Those that are
regular are classified as regular. Some others are classihed and some are not.
Some are classihed as general nuisances and others donlt hold any rank at all.
Some are. merely innocent, but most are just ignorant and others dont know
much of anything. But those that do know something don't know much
either, because if they did they wouldn't come to college. At college they
will learn to know how much they don't know.
The general classification, then, is those that know and those that donlt
know and in particular there is only one classethose that don't know.
THE COLLEGE YEAR
The college year lasts from one year to the next. Every year is a college
year, but the year between two other years is the college year while the other
years are just college years. Vacations are granted from time to time for the
express use of the students in catching up their work. Instructors are always
careful to assign enough work immediately preceding vacations to keep all
students busily engaged therein. For dates in the next college year consult
the date book and then see list at Goodrich Hall. If not successful, other
rooming places may be tried.
All students are required to pay fees, whether they get anything for their
money or not. These fees are payable in advance of the good received and in
case there is no good received they are payable in advance just the same.
Students taking more than seventeen hours will be required to pay extra for
each hour over that number, but the college has plenty of money and so no
student will be permitted to pay the extra fee unless he is an exceptionally
good student. These privileges are reserved for the best.

GOVERNMENT OF STUDES
Students who enter Milton College are expected to behave. This is tra-
ditional and tradition has the force of traditions. Problems of discipline are
not sought; in fact, they do not require seeking.
Each class chooses an advisor and there is also an advisor for groups of
students. The purpose of these advisors is so that students may not suffer
from the lack of advice. If a student does wrong it is not because he was
not advised to do right.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights are considered as
regular study nights. The other nights are considered as irregular study
Course of Study
There are two courses of study in the college, one leading to the degree of
art of bachelor and one leading to the degree of art of matrimony. Each
course of study is pursued during the four yearsand includes one hundred
and twenty semester-hours, and all other time one canllind to put upon it,
besides the necessary experimental projects.
In the arrangement of his course of study, a student should plan to do
110 less than fourteen hours a week.

REQUIRED WORK FOR THE ART OF MATRIMONY
Of the one hundred and twenty nocturnal-hours of class work, twenty
hours in the first year must be spent in Finding and selecting a co-worker.
Thirty-two hours must be spent in the second year in the laboratories learn-
ing to work together. These are known as required subjects. The remaining
sixty-eight hours are elective.
REQUIRED WORK FOR THE ART OF BACHELOR
In the Freshman year, courses in the study of the works of prominent
bachelors such as George Washington and Sir Andrew Aguecheek, are re-
quired. After having studied these courses, it is essential for each student to
take some time in laboratory, Saturday nights preferred, but at no time should
any gentleman be seen with less than six women and no woman, catering to
this degree, should be seen with any one man. Upon no consideration should
the same couple be seen together more than once each week. These courses
in laboratory work shall be considered as the regular curriculum. Such sub-
jects as Latin, Mathematics and History are purely electve and extra-curricu-
lar. Elections should be made of those subjects which will best forward the
work of the regular curriculum. The aim of every gentleman student shall be
to determine the number and variety of the qualified numbers of the opposite
sex with whom his associations shall become fixed, but not fixed enough as to
become permanently fixed. In other vocabulary, his purpose shall be to as-
sociate t0 the nth degree and yet at the same time to remain infinitely single.
The purpose of women students shall be transversally and diversally opposite-
ly vice-versa to that indicated above.

The Final Word
, h; HIS is the fifth edition of the Milton College Fides. Four others have
i jig; already wonderfully stood the test by which all year books are judgede
i that of the satisfaction of the readers. And now this one comes, ready
to be judged.
The building and producing of this annual has not been an easy task. Many
problems have presented themselves and many difficulties have been encountred.
But in spite of these we of the staff feel that our time and energy has been well
spent. We have enjoyed working together and facing together the problems of
putting out a year book. We shall long look back upon the days spent in this work
as among the most momentous of our lives.
We have appreciated the aid given us by alumni, especially those who have
been enough interested in our work to make suggestions and to help us mater-
ially by subscribing. We are also grateful to our advertisers who have helped
to make this book possible. we are happy to acknowledge also the aid given by
the Student Body as a whole and by students as individuals. The work on the
book was made much easier by the fact that students and faculty could always
be Counted upon to help in a pinch.
Our attempt has been to make this edition of the Fides truly representa-
tive of the history of Milton College. We believed the theme to be especially ap-
propriate at this time, inasmuch as Milton is now at the point of transition into a
larger and better school. And so we have given our best to this enterprise, and
we hope that it will be of interest and value to alumni and students alike. As we
explained in another portion of this book, our purpose has been to recall to the
minds of students of other days memories dear to their hearts, to instill in the
minds of present-day students an appreciation for the past, and to promote in
the minds of all a realization of what the future holds forth. XVe hope that your
decision will be, after you have looked the book through and noted its contents,
that we have at least partially succeeded in our effort.
As has been customary with the Fides in the past it has been the aim of each
department to portray the activities of the past two years. 1? urther than that it
has also been the aim of each department in so far as possible to bring in some-
thing of the past, in keeping with the theme of the book.
Many besides those listed in the staff have helped to make this edition. Many
of the articles have been written by those not connected with the staff, and in such
cases it has been our policy to credit these people, in so far as possible, by inserting
their initials after the article they have written. Those articles which are not signed
are, for the most part, written by staff members. Other students have also aided
in the collection of advertising. Mention should also be made of R. K. jacobson,
who aided the circulation department very materially in the sale of books. Miss
Thelma Crandall has been responsible for most of the stenographic work and has
been assisted by several other students.
Also, we wish to acknowledge the aid of President A. If. Whitford. Especially
are we grateful for his help in the compilation of material for the historical sections.
We have appreciated also the suggestions and frank criticisms of the Pontiac
Engraving Co. of Chicago and the Bliss Printing Co. of Rockford. Each of these
flrms has taken an intense interest in the book and have attempted to make it the
- best possible. It has been a pleasure to work with the men of these two companies,
because, although disagreements might arise, it was always clear that the best in-
terests 0f the Fides were First in the minds of these men as well as in the minds
of the stalif members.
Now, we have given our best in the attempt to make this 1929 Fides a book
worthy of being allowed to stand beside the other four, which are monuments to
student accomplishments during the past decade at Milton College. We leave
the judgment of its worth to you.
