fs The Members of the 1949 Student Body of MILTONVALE WESLEYAN COLLEGE Miltonvale, Kansas GERALD WOLTER, Editor-in - Chief ,; - Mm mmmr .-- h ' ' -: ' - ' - RAYMOND EDWARDS, Business Manager AOj0 Silas Bond First President Administration Building — 1909 1909 PROG REb b FOREWORD At the turn of the century, a general feeling prevailed in the denomination that the great western area of our church should have the advantages of a mid-western Christian College. In 1909 the Administra- tion building was constructed upon the present site. As an expression of appreciation for the admirable service of the College, the ladies of the Conference Missionary Societies of the Area raised the money for Abbott Hall which was constructed in 1915. Upon completion of the girls ' new dormitory in 1948, they surrendered Abbott Hall to the boys, thus more adequate housing was provided for both. The church has graciously underwritten the operational costs of the College by a self-assigned educational budget, donation pledges, L.S.U., annuities, endowments, and other special gifts. During the years 1940- 1941-1946-1947-1948 the constituency has responded in a most commendable manner to the expansion program which was begun in 1946. Some fifty thousand dollars has been raised in cash, with some twenty-two thousand dollars in pledges remaining. These monies have provided for the construction of the girls ' dormitory, the Annex, the College Inn, and the College Workshop. A gift of several thousand dollars, the largest ever to come to the Institution, was given by Mr. Ole Lee of Simpson, Kansas, who is admin- istrator to a large estate, Mr. Lee is not a Wesleyan Methodist, but is a friend of the College, and is very sympathetic to Christian education. Miltonvale Wesleyan College has been honored with a peak enroll- ment of 230 on her fortieth anniversary. This is Institutional progress, and constituency cooperation — and cooperation means operation. Therefore, WE the students DEDICATE this progress issue of the Sunflower to YOU the people of the Area whose faithful contributions, loyal devotion, and Christian cooperation have made this progress possible — which " Progress is the stride of God.

S. FREEBORN, B.Rel., A.B., M.Rel., B.D. President of the College Miltonvale Wesleyan College is moving forward to great achievements under the administration of Warren S. Freeborn, who has served as President one year. An alumnus of the Theological Department, his previous services as pastor, instructor, and Director of Public Relations had already proved his loyal devotion to Miltonvale College and his capability to assume its executive duties. President Freeborn has borne a heavy and demanding responsibility, but he considers the service invested in the lives of youth is worth every effort and energy expended We each one appreciate his sincere friendliness, personal interest, under- standing guidance, and able executive leadership, which reveal the depth of his consecrated life and command all respect and honor. His humble devotion to God and his stirring, challenging messages have wielded a strengthening influence m each student ' s life, and drawn us to higher ideals and a closer walk with God. 10 HDHIIinRHIION " ' LJs WESLEY KNAPP, Th.B., A.B,, AM Dean of the College History BLANCHE EPLER, B.Rel., A.B.

COATES IHECOLIEGE CHURCH Not many people are privileged to have a church and a pastor as the students of, Miltonvale have. Rever- end Coates is truly a leader of the flock. Each Sunday the church bells ring to welcome everyone inviting them to worship. Reverend Coates ' messages are very heart searching. He brings the truth of the Gospel to us so plainly that none can fail to hear. He seemed especially led to bring messages of faith, teaching us not to give up when the way is hard. Lessons such as these ground our faith, and teach us to build stalwart Christian lives. Reverend and Mrs. Coates are both possessed of a very tender spirit, humble nature, and with desires for more of God. They gave every student a royal welcome to the church. No one feels left out because of their denomination, nationality, or background. They take the place of home and give each one a place in which to ex- pand and become stronger spiritually. MILTONVALE COLLEGE CHURCH 50 EVANCELISn REV. H. K. SHEETS Youth Week Evangelist The regularly scheduled fall and spring revivals are always a source of blessing. Professors Charles Wilson and Edward Angell, the theology instructors, gave inter- changingly of their time, talents, and spiritual aid for our fall revival. The chapel services were rich with mes- sages that made many points of doctrine and experience clear. How to walk by faith, to keep covered by the Blood, and to live more than conquerors were only a few of the searching truths given. Reverend H. K. Sheets, our youth leader, was the speaker during Youth Week; the Lord richly blessed by sending the Holy Ghost in convicting, saving, and keep- ing power. The main thought of his message was " The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit. " The spring revival was held by Reverend Clarence Budensiek of Houghton, New York. Again the Lord visit- ed -with the powerful Holy Spirit. All were made to marvel at the wonderful way that He deals with men. The lives of everyone were blessed and made better by these devout men who came to us the past year to preach God ' s Word. REV CHARLES WILSON and REV EDWARD ANGELL Fall Revival REV.

Religious Council Guides Students in Christian Living The Religious Council is quite a new organization in school activities. It was created last year to provide a headquarters for the religious activities. It is fundamen- tally like the Student Council with a president and rep- representatives from each department. The work of the Religious Council is far reaching and quite varied. They choose those that are to be on the four gospel teams. These teams are very important as representatives not only of the school but also of the Lord Jesus Christ. They represent the spiritual depth of the student body. Many weekend and a few revival services are held by the various gospel teams. Another duty of the Council is that of arranging for the student prayer services. The leaders and the special numbers in song have proven a blessing to everyone. The gracious spirit GOSPEL TEAM A — Roberts, Opiiger, Watson, M. Powell, DeBord. of the Lord has visited the campus many times during the year. He seemed to linger and hover over us in a precious way. The Religious Council has been of great benefit al- ready in its short career. The religious part of the school which is the most important has taken on a definite plan and purpose. It is not a large disorganized unit but a closely knit group that guides the affairs with the able counselof Professor Angell. Its chief ambition is to serve Christ, help others to see the Light, spread the Gospel News and, most of all, live a victorious life. They will be able to help others only when Christ is the unseen guest at every meeting, the silent listener to every conversation, and the true head of the organization. GOSPEL TEAM B — STANDING: P.

College Male Quartet Travels [xtensively The singing foursome known as the " College Male Quartet " has become very common on the campus. They have done considerable traveling over our area in the past year. The quartet represents three states. Rolland and Albert Fletcher, who sing first tenor and baritone res- pectively, are from Albert Lea, Minnesota; Ronald Bran- non of Enid, Oklahoma, sings second tenor; and Donald Edwards of Miltonvale, Kansas, sings bass. The quartet, having been together two years, are especially well match- ed in singing and speaking talents. In spirituality each of them strives to improve as the months go by. The summer months in traveling over the Milton- vale area. They began at the Kansas conference and visit- ed the Iowa and Dakota conferences completing their tour in the Western section of the country. Through their travels the quartet enjoyed the pres- ence of the Lord. The reports that they gave showed clearly how God had helped. During the past school term the boys traveled quite extensively throughout Kansas and the surrounding states. Many requests were received for their singing in revivals, weekend services, conventions, and special pro- grams. Their devotion to God bespoke of their conse- crated lives for the use of the Master. Truly, music is the language of the soul and is a means of giving the story of Christ to a lost and needy world. GOSPEL TEAM C — STANDING: F. Johnson, SEATED: Maly, Chapman, M. Bingaman. F. Bingaman.

A Cappella Choir Tours Several States " Christ for Youth and Youth for Christ " and " Holiness Unto the Lord " are the theme songs of the A Capella Choir. They endeavor to show forth the beauty of Jesus through their choral and instrumental numbers, chalk drawings, and personal testimony. The Choir rehearses each Wednesday and Friday afternoon. At the beginning of the school year they began making plans for their choir trips. Professor Stanley Banker very capably direc- ted the choir in song, scripture and special num- bers. They held services at numerous churches in Kansas and the surrounding states. The choir was not able to fulfill all requests expressed for their ministry in song but they received bountiful blessings in giving their best in every possible way. Although the choir was not able to make an Easter tour this year, they later visited var- ious conferences in a week ' s tour. The choir enjoyed a very fruitful year. From the very beginning of its organization the choir ' s foremost and deepest desire has been to show forth Christ in their lives and through their songs. They have continously striven to let God mold their lives so that they support the songs that they sing. " Not I, but Christ " is what they en- deavor to pKDrtray to others. Leaving for another Trip In Action Special Features Add to Choir Programs A chief aim of the choir is to be spiritual. They endeavor to show forth this in every phase of the choir activities. Besides the regular singing given by the members of the choir, several special features were added to the program for these services. They add variety to the gospel messages as well as portraying the different ways that Christ can be given to the lost about them. The Choir quartet, sextet, instrumental duet, and the chalk drawings give a clearer picture of what Jesus does for mankind. The quartet composed of Walter Rowell, first tenor, Eugene Cockrell, second tenor, Dale Ernst, Baritone, and Phil Edwards, bass, travels during the year and has many blessed services. The six girls in the sextet also contribute to the choir and to the lives of the surrounding churches. Velma Hotchkiss and Carol Thomas, first sopranos, Thelma Hotchkiss and Alice Betz, second sopranos, with Beatrice Perdue and Margaret Rowell, altos, make up this group. Gerald Wolter is the chalk artist of the choir. He draws scenes of the life of Christ as " The Three Crosses, Christ Looking Over Jerusalem, and The Risen Lord. " Fred Klatt and Clinton Butcher supplement the activities of the choir with their horns. The clear gol- den tones of their instruments never fail to create a response and a " praise the Lord " in the hearts of those who hear. Thus we can see that in song, picture, and instru- ment we can exalt our King. CHOIR-QUARTET — Eugene Cockrell, Dale Ernst, Walter Row- ell, Phil Edwards.

Advanced Chorus Presents " Messiah " and " Olivet to Calvary " 1 The Advanced Chorus consisting of college and theology students presented some very unusual numbers this year. Under the expert leadership of Professor Stan- ley Banker the chorus faithfully practiced the cantatas for the spring rendition. Handel ' s " Messiah " and Maun- der ' s " Olivet to Calvary " were both very capably given on Good Friday and Palm Sunday of the Easter season. Those who attended these recitals were impressed by the mes- sage that the chorus brought to them in song. The chorus felt that the many hours of labor were well repaid by the blessings they received. Another group that is represented in the music de- partment is the Academy Chorus. They presented Wil- son ' s " The Glorious Galilean " in accompaniment to that of the Advanced Chorus. The academy students are the participants in this activity. Both groups were well represented this year and all enjoyed the work required and results achieved. I ACADEMY CHORUS — FIRST ROW: L. Hornback, E. Parsons, Hick- man, Wulfkuhle, Fay, F. Nofsinger, B.

The Art Club was organized m December, 1948. It began with a few students who were interested in organizing an art club. A concern for the success of this club aroused several who became members. Increas- ed interest was shown each time that they met. Textile painting and chalk drawing were the main activities of this club. The Spanish Club ' S also a comparatively new organ- ization. Headed by the instructor, Miss Epier, the activi- ties, though not too numerous, were enjoyed. A feature of this club was their chapel program — conversation, reading and translation of the Scriptures. Singing in Span- ish and translating Spanish stories were added features to the portrayal of the life of Spaniards. This different | type of a chapel program created a new interest in our next door neighbors. SPANISH CLUB FIRST ROW; Stangeland Melton, Vermilyea, Freeze Leyh, Henley, M. Kroeker, E.

Sapphonians Win " Sunflowef Sales Contest With glad cheers and joyous claps the Sapphonians greeted the announcemetit that for the fifth year they had succeeded in winning the Annual sales contest. The socie- ties were well balanced in number this year making keen competition between the Athenaeums and the Sapphonians. The good natured rivalry served only to add to the spice of school life. The school term began with an enthusiasm which lasted throughout the year. Each student entered whole-heartedly into the preparations for the contest whicl " were culminated in the trophy that symbolized the prize. The Athenaeums, however, have not been idle thi; year. Their effervescent spirits have made the life on the campus eventful and exciting. Also, in the basketball anc Softball games, and the other extracurricular activities ever student has played his part. Each one has enjoyed immen- sely belonging to his respective society.

C s Forward March A murmur of low pitched voices could be heard from the lower hall of the Administration Building. This seemed to be a familiar sound for no one was puzzled or very inquisitive. It was merely the Student Council hav- ing their weekly conference concerning various problems, complaints, student requests and projects that were pre- sented to them. They serve as the medium between the students and the faculty. The Student Council this year is taking a more act- ive part in the life of the school. As in other years repre- sentatives are elected from each department. The mem- ber of departmental representatives depends on the en- rollment in that department. The academy as well as the theology group has three student representatives while the College has two. These include the presidents of each group. Although small this group of ten individuals deals very capably with the problems that confront them. Prof- essor Wilson acts as faculty adviser. There are also activities that Student Council spon- sors. The Student reception was given at the first of the year to welcome the new students to school. This was very beneficial in helping old and new alike to get ac- quainted. Later such events as the all School Hike and Campus Day made pleasant memories in the minds of each. The chief aim of the Council, with the help of God, is to guide the various activities of the student body. Led by their capable president, they sought advice and lead- ership from their Heavenly Father who knoweth all. Each week they meet at a special time to petition for wisdom from God, who never fails to hear, to answer and to give direct leadership.

The evenings at the local gymnasium were so ar- ranged that all who wanted to play might do so; thus, the girls have their share of fun and exercise. They were divided into two teams and furnished some real excite- ment for the spectators and themselves. This year major competition among the boys was produced by the Athenaeum and Sapphonian teams. Every game was packed with anxiety and enthusiasm. During the first part of the season the Sapphonians gained a slight advantage, but the Athenaeums with char- acteristic Tiger determination were able to tie up the FRONT ROW: Noland, Thomas, E.

On the evening of February 23 the Tigers came through with a clear cut 47-33 victory to take the crown. Until the final night the margin of victory had been only two or three points difference for either team; however, this time the Athenaeums were not to be denied. They played fast, heads-up basketball which bewildered the sharp Bulldog defense. One of the many things to be mentioned about the past season, which was the most successful in years, was the outstanding display of sportsmanship. The boys rep- resented our Christ as well as our school In such a way that they are to be commended. idis mi siubt FRONT ROW: Melton, T. Hotchkiss, V. Hotchkiss. ROW: C. Turner, B.

The Athe- naeum nine gained a decisive margin as they battered a stubborn Sapphonian team. The Tigers hitting power left nothing to be desired as they constantly drilled out the bingles. On the other hand, the Sapphonians never gave up. They fought until the last out. The Athenaeum right hand man was Jim Peabody, who fed the opposing batters out of his hand.

If we clip from other books. We are too lazy to write it ourselves; If we don ' t, we are stuck on our own stuff If we stick to the job all day. We ought to be out hunting pictures; If we do get out and hustle. We ought to be putting first things first. If we don ' t print contributions, We don ' t appreciate true genius; If we do the book is filled with junk. If we make a change in a fellow ' s write-up. We are too critical; If we don ' t we are asleep. Now, like as not someone will say We swiped this from some other book — WE DID! 10I ilDVERTISIKi; Architect ' s Drawing of Proposed Gymnasium " LOOKING FORWARD " Miltonvale Wesleyan College Constructing Christian Character Miltonvale Wesleyan College has completed her fortieth year of service to the Church.

IT ' S A MATTER OF CHOICE The school in which one finishes college work is a matter of personal choice. In the decision, however, three things demand attention: accreditation, atmosphere, and aim. Accreditation assures the student full recognition of his degree by medical schools, seminaries, and other graduate schools; proper atmosphere grants him a high grade of efficiency and a wealth of undefinable spiritual, moral, and cultural values; a worthy aim gives him added incentive to scholarly application. IT ' S A MATTER FOR CONSIDERATION Houghton is a school to be considered by junior college graduates. Lo- cated in a wholesome community, free from the distractions of urban environ- ment, Houghton is a fully accredited college giving major and minor credit in sixteen different fields, and granting bachelor degrees in liberal arts, science, and music. In an atmosphere that is distinctly Christian, its faculty and staff are devoted to the one aim of preparing Christian students for Chris- tian service in all of the professions.

They report that the three days were filled with good things. At 8:00 each morning devotional messages were presented by Dr. Jessop. At 1:30 P. M. missionary messages by veteran Missionaries inspii-ed all to greater consecra- tion. At 4:00 P. M. Doctors Wise- man, Marston, and Armstrong brought doctrinal messages. The young people at 6:30 each evening featured Reverend Sheets, Keis- ling and Elliot, Youth leaders of their respective denominations. A Youth banquet in Dr. Paul Rees ' Youth Building was fea- tured the last night where two hundred gathered for fellowship. The evening speakers were Dr. Benner, Reverend Sturk, and Dr. Rees. Orville Butcher was at his best as music director of the Con- vention. Mrs. Reisdorph Attends Board Meeting Mrs. Ruby Reisdorph left Kan- sas by air in the early morning of May 1, for Marion, Ind., where she attended a quorum of the Wo- man ' s Missionary Society Execu- tive Board. They engaged in bus- iness until 8 p. m. of the same day when she flew to Birmingham, Alabama, to visit her mother. While in Birmingham she did some shopping for the Girl ' s Dormitory parlor. On Wednesday " morning she went to Macon, Georgia, where she attended the annual session of Hephzibah Orphanage Board of Managers. She left Macon at 3 a. m. May 6, arriving in Miltonvale at 4 p. m. the same day. o Students Receive 1948 Sunflower (y At an exciting chapel program on Campus Day the long-awaited 1948 Sunflower made her debut, adorned in an attractive leather- grained cover. The editor, Edna Winterberg, and associate editor, Gerald Wolter, with their staff are to be commended upon producing a book of such quality. The 1948 Sunflower was dedi- cated to President Reisdorph for his capable leadership during the last two years. Professor Wesley Knapp ren- dered efficient service as sponsor of the Sunflower. He is chiefly re- sponsible for the excellent photo- graphic composition. Royal Bailie and Eugene Cock- rell, sales managers, report that practically all of the four hundred and fifty-five Sunflowers have been sold. TO THE SENIORS and A Successful Future o Instructors Return Professor Wesley Knapp, who has been an instructor at Milton- vale Wesleyan College for seven years until January, 1948, when he was granted leave of absence, will return to the teaching staff next fall with the added distinction of A.M. degree. He is now attending the University of Wisconsin, and is majoring in the field of history. Professor E. Stanley Banker is completing his work at the Cleve- land Music Reserve, Ohio. He re- turns also this fall as instructor in voice, with A.M. degree. Gospel Teams Close A Successful Year M.W.C. ' s four gospel teams have reached the end of a successful and enjoyable year of service. Their one purpose has been to represent Christ through the min- istry of sermon, song, and testi- mony. The gospel teams were organ- ized by the Religious Council at the beginning of the year. Each team consists of singers , speaker, pianist, and leader. Some teams were fortunate in having persons with special talent as artists, chil- drens workers, and readers. Royal Bailie ' s gospel team has held services at Hall, and Anti- och Wesleyan Methodist Churches and Bethany Free Methodist Church. The gospel team whose leader is Glenn Hoerner has held ser- vices at Spencer, Atkinson, O ' Neill and Meadow Grove, all in north- ern Nebraska. Ruthie Sandoz ' s gospel team has held services at Bethany Chapel, Wesley Chapel, and Hall. Barbara Waite ' s team has held services at New Hope and Topeka, Kansas. The thirty-five worship services were crowned with spiritual bless- ing and rich fellowship. Besides the fine work of these gospel teams, the College Quartet has made forty-one trips, visited about fifty churches, and traveled more than six thousand miles for gospel services. Every service of love rendered in His name shall meet its full reward. The Truth About Prohibition Reverend E. E. Taylor, repre- sentative from the Prohibition Forces of Kansas, addressed the student body during chapel May sixth. The message was very timely and to the point. Reverend Taylor gave ignorance, indiffer- ence, and hopelessness the credit for keeping Christian people from voting as they should. He spoke plainly of our responsibility in keeping Kansas dry, and told us what to do about it. Truly there is a great need in this gigantic task.

She sang on the girls trio for two years, and in dramatics she won a superior rat- ing at the district contest and an excellent rating in the state. She was president of her freshman class. Her average for the first two years was 95 plus. During summer vacations she gave music lessons, taught Bible School, and was pianist for camp meetings. In Miltonvale she has worked faithfully; besides carrying five subjects she has taught music, worked in the college office part time, and participated in many musical activities. The students and faculty of M.W.C. appreciate Miss Hubby ' s attainments, and wish her much success for the future. Paul Woelhoff of Clay Center, Kansas, has been chosen saluta- torian for the graduating class of ' 48, Paul has completed high school work in three and one-half years, and also has twenty-one hours credit in theology. During high school he took as many as six subjects a semester. He has taken all this at M.W.C. During this time he participated in music activities taking both chorus and voice. For two years he served as president of the Kansas Club, and for one year as vice-president of the Athenaeum Literary Society, The last semester he has paid his board and room by cutting records. He has cut about 100 records. Paul is a devoted Christian and serves faithfully in his home church, M.WC. students and faculty wish him much success. Life is a mirror: if you frown at it, it frowns back; if you smile, it returns the greeting. Let us watch well our beginning, and results will manage them sel- ves. President Speaks WE GIVE THANKS The school year of 1947-48 draw to a close leaving in its wakf pleasant memories, many tasfc accomplished, and a multitude o: reasons for praise. The administration takes thif opportunity to thank the students for the loyalty and cooperation for the spiritual devotion and foi the noble endeavor to maintain high scholastic standards through- out the year. To the staff we ex- tend congratulations on the splen- did piece of work that has been done; each has filled his or her place with a marked degree ol cooperation and efficiency; this has greatly assisted in the work ol the year. To the constituency that has given liberally, prayed earnestly, rnd supported faithfully, we offer heartfelt thanks. It is the great body of co-workers who seldom appear on the campus or about the premises that make the ac- complishments of Miltonvale Col- lege possible. You have given and li orfd because of your interest in the college, and your love for God. For all this we thank you. We give thanks and praise to our gracious Lord who has given the people a " mind to work. " Who has given the leaders an unmerited measure of grace and assistance, and who has bestowed unlimited blessings upon all. Miltonvale College looks into the future with faith and confidence. Her plant has been greatly enlarg- ed within the last year, her teach- ing staff has been increased; she has more to offer her constituency than ever before. Many applica- tions are coming in from prospec- tive students and apparently all available housing facilities will be used next year. With a student body, a staff, and a constituency working to- gether under the blessing and leadership of the Lord great thines can be accomplished through the ministry of the institution. o FACULTY OF THE MONTH (■continued from page 4 ' Miss Turner made a delightful day that will not soon be forgotten. Evidently life has taught Miss Turner some valuable lessons for she has been able to impart to the students the importance of right conduct and a character building to outlast the storms of life. Aside from being a faculty favorite and adding her share of fun. Miss Turner has made a definite contribution to each of our spiritual lives this year at M.W.C. MilWesCo Mirror Page 3 Class Day Trips At the early hour of four-thirty the college department bade fare- well to class worries for a care- free day. Lincoln, Nebraska, be- came the destination of this long anticipated class day. In spite of rain showers the day developed into a time of complete relaxation filled with thrills?? sur- prises and laughter. The class was accompanied by Miss Turner, the sponsor. Theology students followed tra- ditions of the department in spend- ing their class day at State Lake. The evidence of boating was plain- ly written in suntans and sun- burns. They returned to the cam- pus fully prepared to do their very best in semester tests. Choir Quartet Goes To Wisconsin The choir quartet, composed of Eugene Cockrell, 1st tenor, Ken- neth Roberts, 2nd tenor, Dan Huff- man, baritone, and Clinton Butch- er, bass: left on Thursday, April 22 for a week-end trip into the Iowa and Wisconsin conferences, engaging in a service in Kansas City enroute. They participated in a Youth for Christ Rally in Spooner, Wis- consin. Sunday services were con- ducted in Eau Claire, and Spooner, Wisconsin and Minneapolis, Min- nesota. On their return journey thev held a service in Charles City, Iowa. Alvin Leisy took the quartet on this 2,000 mile trip in his car. The group felt the trip was well worth while and gave thanks for the presence of the Lord in their services. How About It? Answer yes or no. Do you take defeat graciously? Can you talk without scream- ins? • Do you leave a room as orderly as you found it? Do you talk without boasting? Are the tasks you do finished? Do you practice saying " thank you? " • Can you refrain from embarras- sing others? Are tasks done the same when no one supervises you? Do you remember that every problem has two sides? Do you realize you need not feel inferior? • Are your shoes polished?

Wayne Caldwell for president, Barbara Waite for vice- president were elected officers of the Religious Council and Donald Edwards and Ronald Brannon were elected president and vice- nrcsident respectively as officers of the Student Council. Alumni Greetings Greetings fellow-alumni: To our knowledge this is the first word of greetings we have written in the eleven years we have been an alumnus. We do this at the invitation of the MilWesCo Mirror Editor. Since graduating from the Theo- logical Department in ' 37 we have been engaged in evangelistic and pastoral work. We are now com- pleting our fifth year as pastor of the First Wesleyan Methodist Church in Waterloo, Iowa. In these past five years we have seen three other Wesleyan churches organized out of First Church; now there are four churches in the vicinity each with a new building and a pastor. Mrs. Kindschi (Alberta Klatt ' 39) and I have two boys, Paul Douglas seven, and David Eugene three. Our activities other than pastoral include a radio broadcast known as " The Wesleyan Hour of Melody and Meditation " staffed mainly by M.W.C. alumni. Among other con- ference duties we edit the " Evan- gel, " and as such I had better manifest the same by closing here and keeping this greeting to the requested length. Sincerely yours Paul L. Kindschi Dear alumni: It gives me great pleasure to greet alumni friends and to report something of my activities at Bethany College, Lindsborg, Kan- sas. My preparatory work is in the field of music, which will grant me a B. M. degree, major in music education and voice. I greatly appreciate the help of the Lord in my work this year, and am endeavoring to keep Christ foremost in my life. A friend in Christ Rosalie Carry Mirror Completes Second Year This issue of the MilWesCo Mirror finishes its second year of circulation. The staff feels that any measure of success attained has been due to the cooperation of the entire student body. Our business manager reports that our circulation has reached an approximate total of 400. If you are interested in continu- ing your subscription next fall fill out the blank on the back cover and return it with seventy-five cents. Keep abreast of the times by knowing your college. Page 4 MilWesCo Mirror Student of the Month That energetic, petite, polite per- son hurrying about our campus is the editor of the MilWesCo Mirror, Genevieve Johnson. In many ways she is an essential part of M.W.C. She came five years ago as an academy junior. This year she is finishing her junior year of theology. These five years on the campus have found " Gen " active in sports as well as in other lines. She has two M ' s and each has chevrons. The Athenaeum basketball team would not have been complete without Genevieve as captain. A few hours of tennis or kitten ball are often her sources of relaxation. Courtesy has always been her motto and she has lived it in a very convincing manner among her classmates, whether she traveled on a choir trip, asked for articles for the Mirror, or served as secre- tary and treasurer of the Theology Department. Like all the rest of us she has her likes and dislikes for food. If you want to make her happy, invite her to a steak dinner finished off with strawberries and cream. To offer her liver and onions would almost be an insult, for she dislikes them very much. Genevieve ' s biggest pet peeve are folks who forget to polish their shoes, and those people who aren ' t courteous. To know Genevieve is to ap- preciate her depth of spiritual devotion. Having grown up in a pastor ' s home, she has determined to live true to the heritage that is hers in serving Christ whole- heartedly. Here is her testimony — " I know the Lord saves and sanctifies me now. He has been my guide, and I want Him to continue guiding me. I truly love Him. " Bridal Shower Miss Betty Powell was honored at a bridal shower given by Miss Thelma Hickman and a group of Betty ' s classmates. The gift table was decorated with blue and white streamers and a floral centerpiece. The gift selections were varied and useful. Mrs. Eugene Powell, Betty ' s mother, was the special guest and assisted her daughter in unwrap- ping the gifts. The games and refreshments were appropriately chosen. Officers for the Coming Year The election of officers for the Student Council and Relisious Council for the approaching school year was held at the college on May eleventh.

Taylor as a new member of our faculty, instructor in piano, sight singing, harmony, and orchestra director. Miss Taylor was graduated from Houghton Col- lege with a Bachelor of Music De- gree and has taken advanced work in Eastman School of Music in Rochester. Miss Taylor is a native of New York state and comes from a Wesleyan pastor ' s home. She left her position as director of music in a public school because she felt God ' s guiding hand in the open- ing for her to come to Miltonvale. Collecting records is one of her hobbies. Strange as it may seem she likes Kansas ' warm weather. Coming among us as a stranger Miss Taylor sincerely appreciates the friendliness extended to her by the faculty members and stu- dent body. She realizes not only the importance of harmony in our music, but also the value of har- monious living and of having our hearts in tune with God. Miss Taylor is impressed with the wholesome atmosphere of Milton- vale Wesleyan College, and is anticipating an enjoyable year. Miltonvale College is happy to welcome Professor Charles Wilson to her campus. He comes to us with a splendid background be- cause he has already spent seven years here at Miltonvale taking his academy .theology, and first year college work. He then went to Capitol University, Columbus, Ohio, and Asbury College, Wil- more, Kentucky for his seminary work, receiving his B.D. degree at Asbury. Williams Chapel, near Topeka, was his first pastorate; his last pastorate was Sunbury, Ohio. This year is his initial year of teaching and we wish him suc- cess. ENROLLMENT TOPS PREVIOUS YEARS We are more than conquerors through him that loved us. Ro- mans 8:37. Reverend Freeborn Accepts Presidency Coming to us one year ago for the second time as a member of the college staff. Reverend Free- born served in the capacity of Director of Public Relations. This year he comes to us in a different and much closer relationship to the student, that of president of the school. Professor and Reverend Free- born has been a vital part of and has made an outstanding contri- bution both to school and church in Wesleyan Methodism. He began his career as a minister and pastor of the Hollis and Minersville Cir- cuit in the Kansas Conference. His fine work led him to larger and more outstanding churches and fields of service. Some of these were pastor of Topeka First Church, Connoctional Vice-presi- dent of W.Y.P.S., pastor of Con- cordia Church, pastor of Milton- vale College Church, instructor of Miltonvale Wesleyan College be- gan fall registration September thirteenth with the hall of the library lined by eager students. At the end of the second day some very interesting facts were gleaned from the registration cards. Sixteen states are represented in the student body. New ' Vork and Pennsylvania in the east and Oregon and California in the west represent the extremes of the influence of Miltonvale Col- lege. The following states are listed in the order in which they rank for representatives on our cam- pus: Kansas, 37; Iowa, 20; South Dakota, 16; Nebraska, 14; Wis- consin, 13; Minnesota, ' 12; Okla- homa, 8; Montana and Oregon, 7 each; Arkansas, 5; Indiana, 3; and North Dakota, New York, Ohio and California each has 2. Our student body is unusual in that we have three sets of twin girls this year. There are at least twenty families who can boast of at least two or more pupils en- rolled in our college. Our present enrollment has reached 223, which is a definite gain over recent years. The col- lege department has experienced a very definite increase in num- bers. o • Payne Accepts Position Professor Payne comes to us as a well-known citizen of Milton- vale. For the past two years Pro- fessor Payne has traveled exten- sively over the Kansas conference doing temperance work. Formerly he had been a pastor at Arkansas City, Kansas. He received his A. B. degree from South Western University, Winfield, Kansas. o theology, Miltonvale College, pas- tor of Marion College Church. President Freeborn has four de- grees: B. Rel., M. Rel., A.B., B.D., all from Marion College. Page 2 MilWesCo Mirror Edltauat " They Being Dead Yei Speak " Christian Education is as old as Christianity. It began in the early lays of the church, in the Apost ' .ic ;ra. Paul in speaking to Timothy said, " Let no man despise thy ( ' outh; but be thou an example of he belivers, in word, in conversa- ion, in charity, in spirit, in faith, n purity. Till I come, give at- ;endance to reading, to exhorta- ion, to doctrine. Neglect not the ;ift that is in thee. " I Tim. 4:12- 14. " Study to shew thyself ap- Droved unto God, a workman that leedeth not to be ashamed, right- y dividing the word of truth. " i Tim. 2:15. Someone has said an education s knowing what to do, how to do. hen to do it. This is the essence )f study and the very embodiment )r success. Desire for religious reedom in worship sent the Pil- H ' im fathers from England to •Europe, and thence to America, vhere it came at the price of 50 )er cent of their numbers during he first year. Undaunted, they left a legacy to josterity, which resulted in 103 )f the first 119 colleges and uni- versities in America being institu- ions of Christian education spon- ored by various denominations. While 328 years have passed ince the landing of the pilgrims it Plymouth Rock, " they being lead yet speak " — and their spirit ives on today. Today Miltonvale Wesleyan : olIege, the child of the church, erves the church and carries on, )ffering Christian education to a loble band of youth, 223 strong, vho grace this campus with their jresence. We solicit a place in ' our prayers that we may be ;uided of the Holy Spirit to un- erringly accomplish the will of jod. May it be said of us, " God s in the place and we know it. " W. S. Freeborn ' HE VOICE OF GOD Louis I. Newman sousht to hear the voice of God, nd climbed the topmost steeple, Jut God declared: " Go down again dwell among the people. " FIRST STUDENT PRAYER MEETING The first student prayer meet- ing on Tuesday evening was a boost to our faith. The entire chapel was filled so that it be- came necessary to open the bal- cony. The sincere praise to God in song and prayer made us conscious of the nearness of the Holy Spirit. God has sent a fine student body to our Campus this year. I praise God for his saving and sanctifying presence in my life. I am glad for the opportunity of at- tending a Christian College where it is possible to prepare for greater service for the Lord and to go deeper with Him. — Dale Ernst, college freshman. I am glad to say the Lord saves and sanctifies. I want above every- thing else to be 100% for Christ and keep His smile of approval upon my life. My only desire is to please Him and k-eep in the center of His will. — Dorothy De- bord, theology freshman. I truly count it a privilege to attend M .W. C. I am thankful that I know Christ as my personal Savior and in Him am satisfied. — Lee Goodell. Watertown, S. D., college freshman. I thank the Lord for calling me to Miltonvale College. It has al- ready proved to be a great bless- ing to me. My only prayer is that I might do his complete will con- ' cerning my life. — Alice Betz, Bill- ings, Montana, college freshman. I am glad that the Lord saved and sanctified me when I was quite small. I appreciate the God- ly lives of the people at my home church. I thank God that I have parents that disciplined me when I would have gone into sin. Mil- tonvale already means much to me. I live to serve my Lord and Master at all times. — Beryl Gib- son, Phillipsburg. Kansas, college department.

Such people as Elmer Srannon and " Smiley " don ' t know Inhere to go between classes, they ind it hard to keep out of the tudy hall. Then too, it ' s a bit lard to understand why Harry akes Edna to the College Inn in , wheelbarrow with all his friends ollowing him. The passengers are quite con- using too. Someone is always .sking Barbara if she is Allen ' s ister or wondering why Carol or Jetty Turner doesn ' t have red lair like Miss Turner ' s.

" Up my steps came trunks, baggage, and boxes the early part of the week, but that isn ' t unusual, I ' ve been housing students for several years now, and every year I expect the same thing. But what is the meaning of these strange looking hat boxes, the sweet smelling perfumes and powders. Are those fellows really getting that fastiduous ' ? What is the meaning of all this? The rods in my closets nearly groan under the weight and load and every- where I look I see shoes! Listen! I hear no notes of echo from those three familiar horns — in- stead there is a noisy chatter and nearly everyone is in one room just visiting. At last I ' m beginning to catch on — the girls have taken over Jones House! I like these girls. But long in my memor.y will linger the quiet? ? escapades of the Jones House Boys. Basement Project Work is rapidly progressing on the new dining hall located in the basement of the girl ' s dormitory. The interior will be all white with chrome trimming and flour- escent lighting will be used. There will be a mixer, two work tables, two refrigerators, a dishwasher, range, steamer, and pot sinks in the kitchen. Three entrances will be used. The fire door, ground level entrance from the north, and the south entrance from the porch. At the foot of the stairs on the south will be a washroom and cloakroom.

QUARTET REPORTS A SUOOESSFUL YEAR The College Quartet is grate- ful for this opportunity to thank each member of the constituency for his prayers which were so valued by each of us, and without a doubt were the outstanding fac- tor behind the victories won throughout the summer months. After leaving the campus of M. W. C. about midnight June 8, our first stop v as at the Dakota Camp, in Aberdeen, South Dakota. Fol- lowing that camp we visited sev- eral churches of the Dakota Con- ference, and after a service in Zumbrota, Minnesota, we traveled on to Hayward, Wisconsin for a youth camp. After enjoying a week of services in various churches of the Wisconsin Con- ference we returned to the Da- kota Conference and contacted many of the charges in the Da- kotas, Montana, and Wyoming. Our tour then took us to Portland, Oregon where we had the privil- ege of attending the Oregon Camp, and also the churches of the Con- ference. Following a brief visita- tion in Colorado, we once again returned to the campus of M. W. C, arriving the night of Septem- ber 1. We continually praised our Christ for the Carry-all which was so definitely an answer to prayer, and so satisfactorily supplied the transportational need for our 11,700 miles of travel. For all these things we give thanks, but above all, our hearts are made to rejoice as we see the evidence of the Holy Spirit ' s saving power and the victories won throughout the summer months. o WELCOME!

WELCOME To Local Board of Managers COLLEGE CHOIR IS ACTIVE On Sunday evening, December 12, the Miltonvale Wesleyan Col- lege Choir presented a sacred program at the Heber Wesleyan Methodist church. The pastor. Rev. Wilford Kaufman, is a student at Miltonvale College. The purpose of the choir is to sing for the glory of God that many souls might be helped through their songs and testi- monies. The choir is scheduled to con- duct services at Antioch, January 23; Wesley Chapel, January 30; and Chapman Creek, February 13. Many of the dates between now and commencement have already been filled in the choir ' s schedule. Let no man dispise Ihy YOUTH but be thou an example of the believers. J I Tim. 4:12 | Rev. E. H. Cook Is Chapel Speaker Miltonvale Wesleyan College was privileged to have as guest speaker in chapel January 6, Rev. E. A. Cook. He is a super- annuated minister of the Kansas Conference, now making his home in Miltonvale. Rev. Cook brought an inspiring message on faith, which bespoke his years of fruit- ful experience. Theology Juniors Enjoy Party The Junior Theology class spent a social evening at the Snack Shop on January 6. Ronnald Brannon directed the opening chorus and Professor Angell led in prayer after which Dan Huffman was in charge of games. They previewed two pictures that were to be shown in the chapel. Refreshments closed the evening. Rev. H. K. Sheets, our General W.Y.P.S. Superintendent, will conduct youth week services on our campus from January thirtieth through February sixth. Rev. Sheets comes to us direct from the general field travels which give him a broad view of Youth Problems and a heart and soul that is aflame with genuine love for our youth. Mrs. Laona Shannon, the local youth president, will supervise ar- rangements for each service. Eu- gene Cockrell, a theology fresh- man, will lead the singing. Special music v ill be given by the various groups on the campus. The local W.Y.P.S. officers have planned carefully and prayed much that these services would reach hungry hearts and feed souls. SPEECH RECITAL The college chapel was the scene of three dramatizations given by the college speech class on Jan- uary 28, in which twenty-five stu- dents participated. Music records were played between acts. " The Silver Star of Christmas, " represents scenes from King Herod ' s palace and a humble Bethlehem shepherd ' s home, just before and after the time of Christ ' s birth. " Bright Christmas Gift " is staged in Methlin, a mythical vil- lage of the Middle Ages. Because the people have become very self- ish, the beautiful painting in the cathedral is no longer seen until an unselfish gift is given to the Christ child on Christmas Eve. " Peace and Quiet " takes place in a well-to-do home. The husband suddenly makes up his mind to become a writer instead of a plumber. The quiet evening so desired by the husband is ruined by the wife ' s carefully planned interrup- tions. The irritated husband for- gets his brain storm and settles down to plumbing. The production committee, in- cluding stagers and prompters, are all members of the speech class.

EdltauaC OUR GOAL- HIGHER SPIRITUALITY It is important that we as a Christian school set the goal of higher spirituality as we begin a new year and then strive earnest- ly to attain that goal. Higher spiritually m ay be attained only through earnest prayer, faithful- ness, patience and obedience. It is also necessary that we set up a personal spiritual goal, for attaining such a goal will boost M.W.S. ' s spiritual life. Each of us should keep our hearts open to the Lord, ask Him to constantly search out evil, and wOlingly con- form to His wiU, As this new year progresses let us determine within our hearts to be what God wants us to be not only that we shall be blessed but also shall be a blessing. M, P. o Your editor has but one thought to present as we begin this new year: Our future lies before us, Like field of new fallen snow. Let ' s be careful how we tread it. For every step will show. Both you and I must heed this timely word if we make this year one of higher spirituality in our own lives and in the campus of M,W.C, R. E, R. We praise God for His guiding hand upon our students ' return journeys from vacation. Many storms and icy roads were en- countered, but God answered prayer and protected from aU hazards. A group were snow- bound for a week, but all finally returned, and quickly settled down to studying for tests. Senie cd of the Matttfi WINIFRED WHITNEY An outstanding Academy senior is Winifred.

Conducts Meeting In Marion, Indiana Professor and Mrs. Angell held revival serv ' ices in Friends Church at Marion, Indiana over Christmas vacation. This church had done much to assist Professor Angell in college during the years 1939- 1942. Professor and Mrs. Angell left Miltonvale December 17 taking three passengers to Dayton. Ohio. They spent a week at Columbus, Ohio, and drove to Marion, Ind., Christmas day, visiting relatives there. The meetings were well attend- ed and the response was very en- couraging. o We are looking forward to the coming of new students on our campus, Monday, January 31, to join our rank for second semester. We welcome each one, and hope you enjoy your campus life at M. W. C. MilWesCo Mirror Page 3 Rumbles from M. W. C. bulldogs bounce Whoo whoo whoo whoooo — AU aboard? Off we go chug-chug.

TIGERS TAKE TOURNAMENT OPENER 30 - 29 On January 5, before a jam- packed house, the Athenaeum Tigers eked out a well earned vic- tory. Watson started things off with a bang, when shortly after tip-off time, he counted with a quick jump shot. Opliger retaliated with a Sapphonian score. The Sap- phonians jumped to a 13-12 half- time lead, but the game was far from over. Shots by Watson, E. Brannon, and Wilson gave the Tigers their widest margin, in the third frame. Clark suddenly came to life for the Bulldogs and things moved fast until the final sec- onds, when some wild passing proved fatal to the stubborn Bull- dogs. Powell stood out in Bulldog de- fense. Opliger of the Bulldogs, and Watson of the Tigers, tied for TIGERS 28 - 27 December 14 A tight Tiger defense failed to halt the Bulldogs, as they rang up their second victory of the cur- rent campaign on Dec. 14. The Athenaeum quintet grabbed an early lead and led at the end of the first canto, 8-5. Each team faired evenly and left the floor at the end of the half with a 13-10 count. Then as before, the Sap- phonian contingent began to hit in the last half . In the 3rd round they chalked up 8 points, while holding the Tigers to 5. The Athenaeums had recaptured the lead in the fourth frame, wlien with several seconds left, Opliger connected to regain for good, the lead for the Sapphonians. The Tigers came back with sev- eral desperate shots in the final seconds, but each failed to ring. Faculty Fellows Succumb To Beeboys 34-18 On Tuesday night, December 14, the Faculty hotshots laid their perfect record of 0-0 on the line against a team composed of " B " string members. The Faculty team consisted of " One Knee Angell " and " Flash " Ruble, guards; " Fragile " Free- born and " Handle-With-Care " Wilson, forwards; and " Which- End-Up " Banker, center. The Beeboys trotted out Pea- body and Abarr at guards, Ed- wards, center, and Ernst and Beghtel as forwards. Substitutions were few, with " Wonder Boy " Snodgrass filling in Fragile ' s " big " shoes several times. The Faculty Fellows looked very " sharp " , with Angell ' s fine exhibition of shooting into the wrong basket. Banker ' s thrilling ride on Peabody ' s back, and Ruble exhibiting how to play right tackle under the wrong basket. Beghtel was high point man for the game, cashing in for 18 points. T ' gers Take Tournament (Cont.) scoring honors with 13 points apiece. The Junior Bulldogs eked out a 20-18 overtime win over a stub- born Cub team. R. Fletcher netted a 2 pointer to win the game. The Sapphonian girls again completely swamped the Tiger- ettes 16-5. o They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lam. 3:23 BULLDOGS BOUNCE BACK 29 - 26 January 12 With Jerry PoweU leading the way, the Bulldogs came back to level off the tournament at one game apiece on January 12. Shortly after the opening whistle, Powell connected from tlie side to place the Bulldogs in front. Then with lightning rapidly, Wilson swished thi ' ee baskets for the Tigers. Powell basketed four more and first quarter read 6-6. In the second stanza, Wilson, Opliger, and E. Brannon counted the tallies and the half time score was 13-12, Sapphonians. The third period saw the Tigers build up a 7 point lead, only to lose it in the waning minutes of the game. Powell took scoring honors with 11 points. E. Brannon followed with 10 for the losers. The feature attraction of the evening was the Bee fellows romp home to a 35-23 victory over the Has Beens. Beghtel took scoring with 19 points. The Sapphonian girls team de- feated the Athenaevmi girls, 18-12. itiiiiiiiiiiiriiriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitiniiitiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiniii SPORTS STARS IlllllllllllllllllllilliliiliiiHiitiiiiiiiiiiniiiiii IrillllllMlirilllllllllllllllllH Each week, two stars are picked by an appointed council. In deciding the weekly stars, the council considers the following: Sportsmanship, ability and team work, which includes setting up plays as well as making the points. January 5 Jerrold Powell Jerry is outstanding in a tight Bulldog defense. He has the dis- tinction of playing one game with- out a foul, a smart floor player, who plays heads up basketball and is especially noted for his abil- ity to set up his plays. Betty Turner A standout on the undefeated Sapphonian feminine five, is a cool-headed player, who has been a great asset to her team. January 12 Mark Opliger Another standout on the Bull- dog team, Mark is equally bril- liant on offense and defense, and he captains the Bulldog five. Velma Hotchkiss Vehna has proven her worth as a defensive player on the Sap- phonian team, and she plays good sound basketball. Page 4 MilWesCo Mirror GARY - BRANNON Rev. and Mrs. E. J. Gary of Miltonvale, Kansas announced the engagement of their daughter, Rosalee to Mr. Ronald R. Bran- non, son of Rev. and Mrs. W. C. Erannon of Enid, Oklahoma, on Dec. 15. The announcement party- was given at the home of Rev. and Mrs. W. Freeborn with Mr. and Mrs. Don Edwards in charge of devotions and entertainment. Af- ter an appropriate reading by Mr. Edv ards the sixteen guests found the engagement announcement concealed with a nutshell given each earlier in the evening.

The theme of the program was " The Little Brown Church in the Vale. " The program was opened by a congregational song. Dale Ernst, the Iowa Club Pres- ident conducted devotions after which the history of the Little Brown Church was given by Leonard Root. The Iowa Club presented a play entitled " Church in the Wild- wood. " The play was centered around a worldly minded business man who had forgotten his church going days in his supreme effort to capture wealth. He was led back to God by his visit to the Little Brown Church and by his former pastor. The characters were: Reader, Dean Yarrington; Judson Grant, the worldly minded business man, Yorton Clark. His secretary was Inez Hart. Mr. Hildabrant the young energetic minister was Dan Here I was, everything so peaceful and quiet until suddenly in September ' 48 ' a group of people packed trunks, suitcases and girls into my rooms. That day ended my peace. There has been none for me since these forty laughing girls are about. What a variety of activities are experienced throughout my halls every day. Three times a day all the girls gather at one of my doors to scurry after the faculty downstairs to the dining hall. Music is a common thing but studying is the opposite. Midnight lunches have their place too. Ava Garrison can tell you about toasted cheese sand- wiches; Eileen Jameson and Fern Young also know something about liquid fudge. Maybe Grace or Helen would like to tell you about their " midnight cup " . I also have some mischievous boarders. Carol T. and Katy re- turned home to find their room like a refrigerator, clothes hang- ing out the window, bed covered with salted sheets and perfumed pillows. Now who could have done that? The persons responsible for this couldn ' t be the same two who are responsible for the missing boots and galoshes — could they? Inquire about it from Bea and Dee. Each Monday evening my active occupants gather in my dining room for rich seasons of prayer, and praise. The house meetings are dear to each girl ' s heart and I know their desire is to be " one " in Christ and serve him with all their ability. Huffman and the aged minister, Mr. Wilson, was Dale Ernst. A mixed quartet number was presented between acts by Elinor and Dorothy Titis, Richard Jame- son and Elwin Purdy. Sapphonians Impersonate Faculty The Sapphonian Literary So- ciety presented a program Friday evening, January 21st in which 16 students participated. After a devotional period, a two act Faculty Impersonations Skit was given. The first act was the scene of a faculty meeting and the second, a Faculty chapel. Impersonations were: President Freeborn, Owen Smith; Prof. Knapp. Rolland Fletcher; Prof. Banker, Clinton Butcher; Prof. Wilson, Walter Rowell; Prof. An- gell, Dale Ernst; Prof. Pomeroy, Burl Baty; Prof. Snodgrass, Bob Butcher; Prof. Payne, Jerry Po- well; Prof. Davidson, Francis Fey; Miss Epler, Ruth Budde; Miss Turner, Velma Hotchkiss; Miss Buel, Naomi Boschult; Miss Tay- lor, Margaret Kroeker; Miss Durkee, Carol Fletcher. The cast gave a delightful, re- spectful, reproduction of the vari- ous faculty members ' favorite characteristics, etc., with all due respect to their instructors, whom we each one appreciate. o TIMELY TRIOS Three things to seek: Salvation, sanctification, and spirituality. Three things to give: A smile, ser- vice, and sympathy. Three things to display: Sports- manship, school spirit, and so- ciability.

Miss Taylor Presents Musical Program Miss Jessie Taylor, our piano instructor, presented a very in- teresting combination of music history and piano solos for her chapel program. Beginning with the early his- tory of music, she discussed the development of many musical in- struments, giving special atten- tion to the piano. She then played for us Beethovan ' s first move- ment of " Moonlight Sonata " and Chopin ' s " Fantaisic Impromptu " . The careful technique and excel- lent interpretation of these two selections cannot be over empha- sized. Miss Taylor ' s third selection, " Cat and Mouse " by Copland, brought enthusiastic applause from the whole student body as they followed picturesque po ' r- trayal of the helpless mouse as he was iDersued by the ever attacking cat. SWeAidettt 3t%eeBe cn and Jjcia ta SxuUfi iDxik, New Courses Added To Curriculum The second semester of this school year brings forth several new courses. In the college and theology de- partments, we find Professor Angell teaching two new ones, Hebrews and Church Administra- tion. Professors Banker and Davidson are the instructors of educational psychology and col- lege algebra respectively. Miss Buel is offering econ- omics to the academy and college alike, while Professor Knapp is teaching a course in vocational guidance to academy students. A home room period is conduct- ed for all academy students. Academy chorus and laboratory are alternately arranged in these periods, while those not in either, participate in directed discussions i of problems growing out of per- sonality, character and conduct. Professor Banker is general director of these discussions. Fri- day is reserved for academy as- semblies. o MRS. HOTCHKISS ACCEPTS POSITION Mrs. William Hotchkiss has ac- cepted the position on the faculty of M.W.C. as instructor of both ' academy English and college Eng- ; lish literature courses. Mrs. Hotch- •i kiss comes back to M.W.C. with four years of previous teaching experience here. She received her four years of high school, and two years of col- lege education, in this school, and (Continued on Page 4) Through a kind invitation of the Rov. Richard Rossow of Mina, South Dakota, the District Leader of the W.Y.P,S., it became the privilege of President and Mrs. Freeborn, the girls trio, including Velma and Thelma Hotchkiss and Beatrice Perdue, and Gerald Wolter, chalk artist, to attend a convention rally covering an itinerary of six churches in the Conference. The visitation of the Holy Spirit was in marked evidence in every service. The first service was in Watertown, South Dakota, where a gracious financial response was given in the interest of the gym- nasium fund to the amount of $550 in cash and pledges. The remain- ing itinerary included the Rich- land Church, Ipswich, Aberdeen, Redfield, and Huron charges. The attendance at each of these places brought large attendances in every service. In some instances people who were in attendance in at least two services drove fifty miles that they might be present in the third. Such was their marked ap- preciation for Miltonvale College and its forward movement to at- tain State accreditment. The financial response in cash and pledges totaled $1868, with over $500 in cash payment. All of this amount was given toward the gymnasium. Many inquirers interested in attending Miltonvale College next year were present at the services. Let us pray toward the end that God will give us an enlarged stu- dent body, expanded faculty, ex- panded curriculum, and State ap- proval in operation leading to State accreditment. It is definitely within our reach. mnmtsta irrnr Vol. 3, Miltonvale College, Miltonvale, Kansas, February, 1949, No. ' J M. W. C. ' s STUDENTS Students of Miltonvale College represent a broad area of the United States. Information blanks show that the combined mileage traveled is 79,460 miles. That means that all together we have traveled more than three times the distance around the world to attend Miltonvale. This fact alone proves the value and influence of our school. Many of our students have grown up in homes where the col- lege was always known. Thirty- seven different students have had either one or both parents who re- ceived their education here. Over sixty students have had brothers or sisters who have attended M.W.C. The fact that six or seven members of one family have chos- en Miltonvale speaks of de ep loyalty. To the pastors of the area goes a great deal of praise for their whole hearted cooperation. Over thirty-five students were directly influenced to attend M.W.C. be- cause of their pastors. This is a (Continued on Page 4) Youth Week Services Inspire Students Rev. H. K. Sheets, General Sec- retary of the W.Y.P.S. was the speaker for the Youth Week ser- vices held January 30 to February 6. His messages centered around sanctification and spirit filled life. From the opening service a spirit of humbleness and love was predominate. The Lord met with added blessing during the meet- ings, and M.W.C. praises the Lord because the revival is continuing, although the meetings are past. Our pastor. Rev. E. A. Coates, brought the first Sunday morning message, with Rev. Gerald Carry preaching Sunday evening. Rev. Sheets, who arrived on Monday, January 7, spoke each day in chapel and at evening services during the rest of Youth Week. The final W.Y.P.S. service was a pantomine " Life ' s Crossroads " . Numerous road signs were placed along the church altar.

M.W.C. has rules and standards. Let ' s be loyal and stand behind the college and her standards. " For the colors red and white we ' ll live and die. " Show your colors kids! Thanks! Just a Grain of Sand Hello there! Do you know who 1 am? No? Well I am a tiny grain of sand and I live in a crack up- stairs in the hall of M.W.C. How did I get there you say? Just listen while I tell you my story. Two weeks ago I was just an- other grain of sand out on the road that runs past the college. I was getting tired of lying there, so one day Miss Turner happened to step on me so I lodged myself into the heel of her shoe and away we whizzed toward the college. When we got to the Biology room, I dropped from her shoe and rolled under a table. Later a bell rang and many pupils took seats in the room. Sud- denly my vision was cut off. 1 looked to my right and left and on either side of me were feet. They were extremely large and I don ' t know who they belonged to yet. I was very tired and sleepy, so I dozed off and did not awaken until I heard a swish-swish sound. Before I could get my bearings I was swept out of the door into the hall and I fell into a crack with a thud. 1 have been hero for over a week now. I surely like it. I hear all the news and it seems as (Continued on Page 3 SENIORS OF THE MONTH ALBERT FLETCHER Albert Fletcher, theology senior of Albert Lea, Minnesota has been active in school life since he came in his senior year of academy. Albert has attended Miltonvale ever since, except for the 30 months he served in the United States Navy. Although Al has many likes and dislikes he says his favorite sub- ject is History. He likes chicken because it is good and he likes to give roosters a chance to enter the ministry. His most enjoyed pastime is reading He thinks see- ing a certain pretty young lady is not a pastime but a full time job. Albert was born at Emily, Minn., on October 19, 1925. He at- tended grade school in Iowa and Minnesota, going to high school in Minnesota and finishing at Mil- tonvale. He always had desired to come to Miltonvale and has never regretted the many rich exper- iences here. Some of the many activities in whicli Al has participated are: Member of the " B " Squad Sap- phonian Basketball team, presi- dent of both the Sapphonian soc- iety and the program committee, baritone and bass on the College Male Quartet, for two years. He has also been business manager of the MilWesCo Mirror, and a mem- ber of the College Choir and the choir quartet, and president of both Minnesota and Miltonvale club. For some years Al has felt a call to the ministry and though sometimes his way had detours his determination to follow Christ has never faltered. In his testi- mony, " I can do all tilings thru Chi-ist which strengtheneth me " , he expresses his truth in the Lord. o Miss Thompson Is Chapel Speaker The student body and faculty were privileged to have Miss Thompson, a returned missionary from Africa, as guest speaker in chapel Feb. 14th and 15th. She represented the National Holiness Association. Miss Thompson received her call from God when she was a freshman in college. Although she was anxious to get into the work to which she was called, she was compelled to wait for 19 years be- fore actually reaching her field. This faithful missionary faced many discouraging battles before reaching Africa. Two attempts were made to cross the waters be- fore her journey was finally a RUTH FLETCHER M.W.C. is proud of Ruthie Fletcher, tail, dark college senior with a sparkling smile. This is Ruthie ' s sixth year at M.W.C, and she likes it better every year. She graduated from the Academy in i ' 47 as valedictorian of her class. Ruth was bom July 13, 1929, into a Wesleyan preacher ' s home. Her father. Rev. L. Fletcher, has served pastorates in Minnesota and Iowa, and also at the Milton- vale College church. Albert Lea, Minnesota, is Ruthie ' s present home. This is her fourth year with singing on the College Choir, sec- ond year on the Sunflower staff, and her second year on the stu- dent council. She has sung on the college trio. Ruthie ' s capability, leadership, and honor are evi- denced by the positions she has held — academy senior class presi- dent, ' 47; vice-president Minne- sota Club, ' 49, college department president, ' 49, as well as giving service to numerous committees. Botany is her favorite subject, reading her pastime, and ice cream her special food. She earned a letter in the Hiking Club in ' 46. She thinks house-trailer keeping for her two brothers is too much work. Ruthie ' s future plans are not definite, but she does not plan to attend further schools next year. We are sure success will be hers, for her victorious testimony, con- sistent Christian Ufe, sincere in- terest in others, and faithfulness ' to duty wiU win her the respect and admiration among all she will meet. success. Her ship, the Zam-Zam was shot at by an enemy vessel on her first trip; but leaving the second time. Miss Thompson trusted God ' s promise to take her tlirough safely — and He did. Miss Thompson has spent five years in Africa and has returned to tell us of the faithful work of holiness missionaries in this dark continent, and of God ' s power in saving the natives. " Never has there, in all the ages of man, been a soul that got hungry for God but what God met that need; never a man thirsty but what God opened the fountain to meet that need. " " About the littlest package you can think of is a person all wrap- ped up in himself. — H. K. Sheets. MilWesCo Mirror Page 3 WELCOME!

Can anyone tell us who Carol T. was with at the basketball game? He was tall dark (?) and handsome. ' Why is Phil leaning out the window as we rumble by Jones House? Could it be that Millie stays there? Is Delbert H. practicing for the real thing. We hear he was best man on ' " Bride and Groom. " Ice, ice everywhere. It seems as though everyone is slipping and falling on the corner that spring is just around. Prof. Angell is never too tired to give a word of cheer or tell a joke. Ask him some time if his twin still likes hominy. Wonder why Evelyn C. wants to join the Athenaeums. Must be a Reason. W hat is Helen K ' s attraction in art club. Could it be a teacher- pupil affair? Wonder why Bob G. was seen alone during week ends.

Did I hear someone ask, " Isn ' t it boring to be a grain of sand and ' - in a crack in a floor? " No, ccd, it is not and if you don ' t 1m Keve me just try it some time. WILSON HOUSE Wilson House is the home of Prof, and Mrs. Wilson, but it is also the abode of various other creatures — namely, seven college students. Upstairs there are three rooms. In the west is the nanor of Noe and Jones, to the east the chateau of Caldwell and Gibson and in the south the estate of Clark, Woodruff, and Wilson. The last mentioned place took first prize in the room judging contest but now collects rubbish, etc. for a period of weeks and then is shoveled out at the command of Mrs. Wilson. " Life usually moves smoothly and mechanically but there are interuptions. The other day Johnny decided to wire the door knob of the southern estate in order to give Woodruff and Clark a " hot " welcome. Lately Gibson expounded the theory that by re- laxing ones muscles they wouldn ' t be hurt when they fell. Then he fell on his elbow. No muscle there. Elmo goes home over the week end to have a quiet place to study — not that Wilson House isn ' t quiet of course. Noe ' s favorite pastime is telling jokes. His jokes never wear out so his room mate Jones is taking up a collection to buy him a box of Snickers in ap- preciation of his — er humorous stories. Sometime have Noe tell you the story of the Indian Chief " Wolfwind. " o CAMPUS ADDITIONS We extend congratulations to the proud parents in our student body.

BULLDOGS BITE AGAIN 32-29 February 9 With Mark Opliger meshing 9 fielders the Bulldogs contingent came up with series game number two. Abarr started things off with a charity fling for the Tigers, but before the first minute had gone. Fey sneaked in for a bucket for the Bulldogs. At quarter time the Sapphonians held a 11-7 margin. Bob Emrich, the flashy Tiger new- comer, poured-on-the heat, to pull the Athenaeums up to a 13-13 tie at half time. After the opening tip-off in the second ' naif, Emrich set Watson up on a sneaker, to put the Tigers ahead. With regularity, Emrich set up the plays at his post position which enabled the Tigers to pull away to a 22-17 third stanza lead. Shortly after the fourth quarter whistle, Watson fouled out. The Athenaeums then began to miss defensive assignments v hich al- lowed Opliger to break through for several lay-ups. Again Emrich came back for two beautiful bas- kets, but the gap was not bridged. Two newcomers were seen in the Tiger lineup. Bob Emrich — forward, with 15 points and Chuck Abarr — guard with 3 points. Paul Handley ably handled his guard assignment on the Bull- dog team. In the preliminary games the Sapphonian Reserves smothered a last minute spurt, to drop the Tiger Cubs 18-15. The Sapphonian girls ROMPED the Athenaeum team 17-0. o • SPORT STARS • NoiTna Noland — The captain of the Athenaeum girls team. Al- though her team has not racked up any victories, she continues to shine. Bob Emrich — Here ' s a new face in the Athenaeum lineup. A very smooth ball handle and an excel- lent shot. He is of untold value as a defensive player, with only one foul charged against him. Bob netted 15 points in his first game. o " Labor to preserve in your bosom that lingering spark of heavenly fire which men call conscience.

This was effective and helped to create an atmosphere in which to enter into the last ser- vice of the meetings. Eugene Cockrell, a Theology stulent, led the singing in each service. Special music was rendered each evening by members of the student body. Velma Hotchkiss and Mil- dred Britton were pianists. Jerrold Powell, with a different student each evening, had charge of the services. Wi)- I praise the Lord for victory in my life .1 am enjoying His bless- ings and want that others might see that Christ can save and sanctify. — David Woelhof. Jesus is everything to me right now. Even though I had miser- ably failed Him, He had mercy on me and took me back. There ' s a deep settled peace in my soul. I know He saves and sanctifies me just now and everything is right between my Saviour and me. The only desire of my heart is to be all He wants me to be and to spend my life for Him. Praise his name forever. — Faith Nofsinger. I thank the Lord for leading me to M.W.C. to attend school this semester, and praise Him for the peace and joy He puts in my heart. I ' m glad that Jesus saves and reigns within. — Marlys Miller. The Lord truly is good to those that serve liim. I am thankful for the youth revival and for the help I received from the messages which Rev. Sheets brought to us. My prayer is that I will always live worthy of His blessing. — Cai-ol Fletcher. I ' m praising God today for full and free salvation. There is a peace and joy in my soul that the world never gave, and by God ' s grace I ' m going all the way through with Him. — Phil Edwards. I ' m praising God today for all He has done for me. I thank Him lor leading me to Miltonvale to this christian school, and I thank Him for bringing me out of the miry clay and setting my feet on solid ground. I thank Him for the call to the foreign field that He has placed upon my heart. I do want to do His will and let Him always be my guiding light. — Norma Slusser. o Faith ' s Reward The faithfulness of the Holy Spirit was manifested anew in the first student ' s prayer meeting of the month. Students testified of victory received during the youth revival after which Rev. Wilbur Rothfuss brought a God given message from Matt. 24:13. Several yielded to the wooing ' s of the Holy Spirit and found joy, peace and a new determination to walk with God. Pray and have faith for a 100% Christian Student Body.

This spring the choir will take a tour through several confer- ences including, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. The blessing of the Lord has been upon each service for which they thank the Lord. The inspir- ing testimonies of the choir have been a blessing both to the con- gregations and the choir members as well. Much credit goes to Professor Banker for his efficient leader- ship. His life has been an inspir- ation and an encouragement, not only to his choir, but to each per- son he contacts. Pray for the choir as they travel and sing His praises, that the services may be crowned with victory and the blessing of the Lord may rest upon them. o MRS. STANLEY , BANKER HONORED Mrs. Warren S.

Devotions were led by Lee Goodell, after which a quartet consisting of Eugene Reisdorph, Francis Fey, Gerald Wolter and Bob Girard sang " I ' m Redeemed " . Grace Anderson introduced a short skit by reading a few scrip- ture verses. The skit portrayed the horror of those left behind in the rapture. Those taking part were Opal Hayward, Barbara Gisselbeck. Kathryn Kingslein, Wilbert Becke, Evelyn Chapman, Chuck Abarr, Barbara Waite, Allen Gisselbeck. A trio, Carol Thomas, Helen Hopkins and Alice Betzr, sang " To- morrow May Be Too Late, " which concluded the program. Rev Kenneth Knapp In Chapel Psalm 23 was presented in song and message by Rev. and Mrs. Kenneth Knapp on Wednesday, March 2. The " Ninety and Nine " showed the Lord as our Shepherd, Ps. 23:1. The green pastures of a spiritual experience were depict- ed in " Grazing " . " Lead Me Gently Home, Father " showed God ' s guidance in our lives. All a Chris- tian should ask is " Just a Closer Walk With Thee, Grant it Jesus, This My Plea " . A song, the words of which were written by Rev. Knapp was used in connection with the Psalm. Beginning March 13, Miltonvale College Church is privileged to have Rev. Clarence Budensiek from Houghton, New York, as the evangelist for its spring revival. Rev. Budensiek is now serving as President of the Nebraska Con- ference. He is known as a conse- crated man of God. Students and faculty are anticipating his Spirit- filled messages. We covet your earnest prayers in behalf at the services. We are expecting great things from the Lord, and trusting that this shall be a time when many will be established. o QUARTET ITINERARY Traveling with the Quartet would consummate the energy of most individuals, but we find the quartet willingly doing this be- sides going to school. Their studies and school activities take up a lot of their time, but we find them ready and willing to go where they are called. Jan 30-Feb. 13 — we find them in revival services in a Methodist Church at Otis, Kansas with Rev. M. E. Markwell, pastor. There were definite victories, especially in the closing services. Feb. 20 — we see thm at Heber (Continued on Page ' Two) o Quartet Schedule For March March lst-13th. A series of re- vival services with Rev. and Mrs. Royalty.

The little stream ' s lazy waters reflect the willow in every minute detail, accentuating the tree ' s beauty against a mirror-blue surface. Students, do you know you are as the streamlet ' s waters, you are reflecting your college — are your reflections smooth, unrippled, and beautiful. Is your holy life ac- centuating your school ' s stand- ards. Here is a challenge to you, to me — let ' s present a true picture of our dear M.W.C. o ACADEMY PRAYER MEETINGS Truly the Lord has been gra- cious unto us. He has been blessing our Academy Prayer Meetings abundantly. Wo give praise and thanks unto Him for His wonder- ful love and goodness. The Academy prayer services are well allended; the average being around thirty. There is a reverent and attentive spirit through which the Holy Ghost can inspire opr soul. Many times a soul has come to prayer meeting feeling sad and discouraged and has gone away with a lighter heart and a firmer hold on God. We feel the Academy Depart- ment has gone farther up the road since the first of the year and we have determined in our hearts to press on even farther. The Christian ' s glorious position in Christ and the necessities of dying out to self were the main thoughts of the two messages de- livered by Rev. O. G. Wilson from Syracuse, New York, to the stu- dent body in chapel on February 28 and March 4 respectively. " If you have been in and out, up and down, I know how to solve your problem — get into Christ; everything else becomes secondary. " " Get your eyes off the condi- tions about you and look to the Lord. God isn ' t disturbed; He knows all the while how to handle the situation. We need to die out as much to self-sufficiency as any- thing else. Burn out self! If you do, God will take you through to victory. " " We are just the wheels and pulleys. When God turns on the power, the wheels begin to work. " o TELEVISION— Bell Telephone Hour On Friday evening, February 18, the Athenaeum Literary So- ciety gave a presentation of " Bell Telephone Hour " with hymns and their stories. The audience was welcomed to " Station M.W.C. ' s first television broadcast. " The Master of Ceremonies, Dean Wat- son, gave a brief life background of Franz List, the greatest pianist the world has ever known, after which Miss J. E. Taylor played one of his arrangements, " The Bells. " Johnny Wilson told the story of the writing of " God Understands, " by Oswald Smith, and sang the song, accompanied by Miss Taylor and Professor W. L. Knapp, violin- ist. The story of " Sunrise, " written by W. C. Poole, was told by Fred Klatt, who also played the music on his horn. The special television feature PROFESSOR OF THE MONTH Professor Wesley Knapp came to us from South Dakota, and has held a teaching position in M.W.C. for seven and a half years. After he received his high school diploma. Prof. Knapp en- rolled at Miltonvale College where he spent several years as a stu- dent. Finis ' ning his work here he went to Marion College and grad- uated with A. B. and B. Rel. de- grees. Last semester of last year, Prof. Knapp received a leave of absence and went to the University of Wis- consin to finish work on his Mas- ter ' s degree. He returned to Mil- tonvale at the beginning of this year and is now Dean of the Col- lege. He has proved to be a very capable teacher and his rich Chris- tian life and sincere personality are a blessing and inspiration to everyone with whom he comes in contact. Professor Knapp is very deeply appreciated by everyone at Miltonvale College. In spite of his many duties Prof. Knapp still finds time for his photography, a hobby which he fully enjoys. Many of his pic- tures appear in issues of this paper and the annual. was a picture by the chalk artist, Gerald Wolter, who drew a setting and sang the words of " I Will Pilot Thee. " Helen Hopkins told the story of " When Jesus Comes " written by Oswald Smith, and sang it, ac- companied also by Miss Taylor and Professor Knapp. The program was made realistic by the setting of the stage to represent the broadcasting studio, with Glenn Lord at the controls. After the program President Freeborn showed some colored moving picture films of this year ' s campus and students. Quartet Itinerary — Cont. Wesleyan Methodist Church with Wilford Kaufmann. Feb. 25th we find them giving week end services in both Iowa and Minnesota. The 25th they were in Des Moines with Rev. Smith: 27th, Guthrie Center, Iowa with Rev. Ralph Smedley. This service was blessed of the Lord with nine seekers at the alter. On the 28th they journeyed to Albert Lee, Minnesota, where Rev. Lester Fletcher, father of two of the quartet members. Albert and Rolland, is pastor. MilWesCo Mirror Page 3 i( RUMBLES ' ' I hear that old train rumblin ' again. You ' d better hurry to get a seat or you ' ll be left. There now, since everyone is situated nicely, we ' re ready to rumble down the track into the month of March. Some one calls out from the rear that President Freeborn gives away hamburgers at the basket- ball games. Bea and Grace look out the window — they mu.st know something about it. What ' s this? It looks like crack- ers on the floor, and it leads right back to Bob Emrich ' s seat. No wonder, there ' s Darlene Preston sitting up the aisle with a box of cheese. Watch that indigestion Bob! Why Is Opal H. looking so mournful. The old train must have forgotten to stop by at Abbott Hall. Miss Epler just walked by, try- ing to sell a box of chocolates. Wouldn ' t Gene take them back? Maybe Prof. Angell will buy them for Johnnie. Virginia P. and Teed have a mischievous glint in their eyes. They must have Sam Shovel on another case. Here comes a couple of peculiar looking people. Are they members of the Klu Klux Klan? On second thought, they ' re just a part of the Apron Club. Odd characters, aren ' t they! Sorta far from the window of Room 4 to the ground below, huh! — ask the Constitution class for details. It sure is convenient for Inez that " H " comes after " G " — how about it, Lee Stop the train! ! ! It ' s time to sing congratulations to Bob and Helen. Gerry has changed his seat in the dining hall. Why the faculty table, Gerry? Suddenly the train slows up and then stops. Our trip was short, wasn ' t it? Next month we plan to go on a sight-seeing tour of the month of April. You ' ll be here, won ' t you. COLLEGE SENIORS SNEAK: Kansas City Their Goal It was a sleepy group of col- lege seniors that slipped from cozy beds at 4 a. m. March 11. In spite of stealth they aroused an ever watchful dog that in turn made their presence known at the Hotchkiss residence. The first new adventure of the day was awak- ening " Margie " and thp car driv- ers. The group soon forgot school as they began to tour Kansas City. The large planes at the Municipal Air Port were very inviting. In fact one would almost conclude that it was only the lack of cash that kept the class from buying a world flight ticket on a four mo- tored TWA plane. The " wander lust " spirit gripped the seniors again as they stood in Union Train Tenninal, one of the largest of its kind in the middle west. Patriotism was their next thought as they saw Liberty Memorial and its museum display of World War I. Swope Park and the zoo were interesting especially since the large animals had just been fed. Poor manners could hardly des- cribe the eating of the large " Hippo " . Due to cold weather the picnic supper planned for the park was postponed until some later time. Perhaps a senior breakfast some time in May (?) A drive through the negro slum district and a short visit to the large Ford Plant concluded day- light scenes. The two best night views of the city were the lighted tower on Hotel President and the reflection of the lights along the Missouri River. It was a tired but satisfied group of Seniors that welcomed the sight of M.W.C. Campus. What time did they return ? Oh that ' s part of the secret of the trip.

" Shutter Bug Club " News The " Shutter Bug Club " met for the first time on February 21 with Professor Knapp as their instruc- tor. Joy F. and Donna R. were elected President and Secretary Treasurer respectively on March 7. The old chemistry lab serves as a dark room where the " Shutter Bugs " have learned to develop films and print pictures. A num- ber of the group are planning dark rooms of their own this summer. Nineteen Academy students brought their 50c dues and be- came charter members of the club. They now enjoy the full rights every club member should. Among these is the right to go into the " dark room " on Tuesday and Thursday p. m. to do their own developing and printing. On March 4 the College Chapel was a " dark room " . Several from the Camera Club explained dif- ferent types of cameras and the process of developing and print- ing pictures. A " shot in the dark " was taken when Prof, surprised many by taking a picture " in the dark " . TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES The Sapphonain Literary So- ciety presented an impersonation of the i-adio program " Truth or Consequences " on February 25 at the College Chapel. The stage was set to represent a radio station. The letters N. B. C. were above the stage and under them was a large picture of a " Due " box. Contestants were picked from the audience and if they didn ' t tell the truth they paid the con- sequences. Contestants were: Bob B., Helen H., Glenn L., Geneva E., Darold W., Mary P., Marilyn M., Bob G., " Smiley " , Leonard R., Ava B., Walt R., Bea P., Gene C, Betty T., Lambert H., Virginia P., and Naomi B. Dale E. acted as Ralph Edwards; Yorton C. as Harlow Wilcox; Burl B., Mark O. and Elwin P. as their helpers. Thelma H., Elwin P., Mark O. and Burl B. made up the " Duz Quartet " . Naomi B. sang from a post in the study hall dur- ing a part of the program. At in- tervals her voice would be tuned in for the audience to hear. Many stunts were performed and everyone was a good sport. It was a program packed full of laughs. Page 4 MilWesCo Mirror tt Kansas Wins Tourney A tall Kansas quintet came through to cop the 1949 State Club Crown. The jumping Jay- hawkers had things pretty much their way as they romped home to a 37-20 victory over South Dakota. Meanwhile a scrappy Iowa team upset a highly favored Miltonvale five 29-27, to earn the light to meet Kansas in the grand finale. The following week Miltonvale defeated South Dakota in a thriller for consolation honors, the scoreboard read 32-28. Interest ran high as the final- ists took tlie floor. Iowa was the shorter team, Kansas the taller. From the opening tip, the Kansans pulled steadily away to a 13-4 quarter time lead. At half time they left the floor with a 20-5 margin. The second half saw the lowans play a brand of ball that they are Lvell capable of playing. The ex- :hange of baskets was about even is the third stanza score read 30- 13. Wilson meshed several baskets n the opening minutes of the final Deriod. This flurry of points :aused the Kansas, boys to settle iown and hold for possession. The " inal score was 38-42, Kansas. Thus the curtain rings down on mother basketball season. In (fears to come, we can look back m the pages of history, and note ;hat the 1948-49 season was cer- ;aiiily one packed with exeite- Tient. The past season was loaded ,vith thrills, chills, and spills of ■vhich there were no end. SPORTS ' ' T9GERS WIN TOURNEY, BEAT BULLDOGS 47 - 33 SPORT STARS February IG ALICE BETZ— Alice is an out- itanding sport on the floor. She lolds down a forward position on ;he Athenaeum team. RONNIE BRANNON— The en- lire Athenaeum society welcomed Ronnie back on the hardwood. His rebounding and fast playing has ;ot up many a tiger tally. February 23 VIRGINIA CONLEY— A Tiger forward, who works continually ivith her team. Virginia is co-cap- tain. JOHNNIE WILSON— Johnnie is another blue and gold player. He is very valuable as a team hustler and rebounder; also an important [•og in that Tiger fast break. S xfJctA SpUai Here are a few comments that your reporter has gathered about the recent basketball tournament. Gene Cockrell: (Ath.) It was O. K. Marjorie Parsons: (Sap.) That last game! Oh dear! ! Elwin Purdy: (Sap.) Every game was good but the last one. Beatrice Perdue: (Ath.) Don ' t you all ask me, I don ' t know any- thing. Harry Moeller: (Sap.) It was O. K. until the final game. The Sap- phonians just didn ' t have what it took. Bob Butcher: (Sap.) Say. now, It was really good. Elmer Brannon: (Ath.) The Athenaeums fought hard enough. They deserved to win. Yorlon Clark: (Sap.) It was the best tournament in years. Ruthie Rothfuss: (Ath.) Boy! That was sure a good game. o TIGERS TRIM BULLDOGS Con ' l. Bulldogs netted 16 points, while the Tigers gathered 11 tallies. The final score read 40-37. Opliger again took down scoring honors with 20 points for the los- ers. Watson paced the Tigers with 13 points. -o , CONGRATULATIONS Rev. and Mrs. Wilford Kauf- niann, a daughter, Sharon Marie, March 9. Mr. and Mrs. Doyle Lamm, a boy, Roger Leon, March 1. The Athenaeums came through, before a packed house, to win the championship in grand style. The rebounding again was the decisive factor, as the Athenaeums fought like tigers to bring home the crown for the Blue and Gold. This is the third consecutive year that the boys in blue have copped the title. Leading from the very first, the Athenaeums held a 10-9 mar- gin at the end of canto one. Then the bombardment began. The air seemingly was filled with basket- ball. At half time the score board read 27-13. The boards had little rest as the count changed to a 40- 20 third period score. The Bull- dogs suddenly came to life in the final stanza, but time ran out, with the final score reading 47-33. Bob Emrich again took honors with 13 points. Wilson followed close behind with 11. The big gun for the Sapphon- ians was Beghtel with ID points. o Tigers Trim Bulldogs On the night of February 16, the Tigers came back with both guns to tie up the tournament! With R. Brannon back in suit the Athenaeums played inspired basketball. The presence of Bran- non ' s rebounding was the decisive factor in the victory for the hungry Tigers. Shortly after the jump. Opliger came in for a neat tip-in to put the Sapphonians ahead. The Athenaeums worked the ball around until Brannon poked in a side shot to tie up the affair. A bad pass by the Bulldogs was in- tercepted by Emrich who dribbled in for a set-up. The Athenaeums never re- linquished the lead, although the Sapphonians knotted up the game several times in the first canto. With three seconds remaining be- fore intermission time, Watson netted a jump shot to place the Tigers in front 21-18. Shortly after play was resumed in the second half, the Tigers pulled away to a 28-18 lead. A long set shot by Handley, swished to pull the Sapphonians up within 8 points of the Tigers. The third quarter score read 29-21. In the fourth quarter an exhibi- tion of fast break basketball was displayed. The baskets mounted up with lightning rapidity.

Hush! Don ' t you tell but I ' ve been peeking into those informa- tion blanks again. They tell the most interesting stories. More people on our campus come from large families than from small ones. 59% of our students come from families of more than five. Who said only children from small families went to college? There are at least 15 students here that come from families of 10 or more. About 25% come from families of four or less. The majority of the student body comes from families of four, five or six, the latter ranking the highest. Another very interesting fact is that of the 200 people filling out these blanks 60% of them come from homes where neither of the parents has attended college or Bible school. Does this not show that our church is now catching the vision of educatio n? Notes of Victory (continued from page 2) the first time I can say I have perfect peace in my soul. I ' m glad for the Lord ' s saving and sanctify- ing power in my life. Francis Fey — I am truly thank- ful for the Lord ' s leading in my life. I ' m glad that Christ has come in anew and that I have died out to the old roots of carnality and pride that were so evident. I want my life to be as clay in the potter hands. I am determined to let the Lord lead and reign in my heart. - o — ' ■ Campus Visitors (continued from page 4) On March 26 Mrs. E. C. Perdue, Mrs. Leonard Stangeland, and Mr. and Mrs. Wilfred Duncan from Ponca City, Oklahoma, were on the campus visiting with Wilma Stangeland and Beatrice Perdue. Miss Shirley Mikesell from Belleville, Kansas, visited with friends March 18-20. Miss Mikesell has taught this past year near her home. Mrs. Russell Hanson and Katha- leen from Albert Lea, Minnesota, visited Maxine Hanson on March 14-21. Other recent campus visitors have been Dwight and Ivan Regnier from Lawrence, Kansas, Jim Hoo- ver from Emporia, Kans., Wynon- na Morgan from Concordia, Kan- sas, Gilbert Lewis and Joanne Chase from Junction City, Kansas, and Beverly Griffen from Hollis, Kansas.

It has often been said that America is the melting pot of the world. Judging that M. W. C. is no exception proves to be exactly right. Reports show that 17 dif- ferent nationalities are represented here. This, no doubt, is only a report of those whose ' s families are predominately related to the Mother Country. English ranks highest with 32%, German comes next with about 25%, Irish, Dutch, French and Scotch were next in the order named. The Swiss, the Jews, the Bohemians, the Finns, and the Indians are each rep- resented by at least one individual. Health records are interesting too. Over 60% of our students have been victims of that most common disease, measles, Chicken pox, mumps and whooping cough were the next popular. Guess we oui?ht not to worry too much about suffering from a whole sali fu - demic of these diseases. One individual has had polio, one spinal-monigitis and two have had diptheria. Most unusual was the fact that only two people re- ported having had pneumonia. Mi ' IpMLK Mame Mete in ij the moi Hot COUlM.
