Bond, Presi- dent of Houghton Seminary, was commissioned to visit churches of the western conferences to encourage them to unite in a church- supported school. There had been several small, locally supported schools, but they had closed. Due largely to the efforts of Rev. H. S. Abbott, President of the Kansas Conference, the site at Miltonvale was located. Twenty acres of land for a campus and conference camp ground were offered by the Tootle estate, and the town pledged $12,000 toward the con- struction of the first building. The Administration Building was more or less ready by Septem- ber, 1909. A three-story brick structure, the building had its own water system, pressure supplied by a windmill south-east of the school. The building was lighted by acetylene. Through the next few years many improvements were made. City water and electricity were installed, many trees were planted, including the distinctive cedars. New walks were laid, the remainder of the basement excavated. Abbott Hall, gift of the Kansas Con- ference W.M.S., was built in 1914. Through the years the administration has added to the campus by purchasing houses near the school to be used as dormitories or rentals. During the late 1940 ' s an annex was constructed, housing the music studios, library, and classrooms. The " Inn, " for snacks and school supplies, quickly became the campus social center. The girls moved into their new dormitory, and the boys into Abbott Hall. In 1952 the gymnasium was ready for use. A large new athletic field, tennis courts, and picnic area were added. Then in 1956 the F.C. Hill Memorial Church was dedicated. A studied program of landscaping and planting, with the healthy growth of grass, trees, and shrubs, has made the campus a beautiful, park-like area.

As time marches on. these fifty golden years of the history of M. W. C. become more precious to the individuals that have been a part of this great institution. Miltonvale Wesleyan College was founded to provide a Christian education in a Christian atmosphere and to prepare workers for the work of the Lord. At the very core of life at M. W. C. stands Christ, " who daily loadeth us with benefits. " The spirit of M. W. C. has urged us to look up — up to our Heavenly Father, to values of eternal importance, to a Savior, Guide, and Friend. Woven into the fabric of the school are the threads of consistency, effici- ency, patience, and devotion as found in the lives of our faculty and staff. Numberless are the memories that have made the days at Miltonvale College the best years of our life. We shall never forget the beauty of the campus as it changed with the seasons, the social life with its gaiety, the fun and sometimes frustration, and cramming for exams un- til the wee hours of the morning. Then. too. we remember the people we met. the friendships made, the experiences we shared, the great spiritual victories that were won. all of which made us better persons and prepared us to better meet future problems. Miltonvale College has rendered many services through the years. From her halls have gone three thousand twenty-one voung people. Many of these are serving as denominational officers, college presidents, pastors, teachers, and doctors; others are Christian laymen in var- ious places of service. All of these can point back to M. W. C. and recall that they received the highest in academic preparation with the highest in spiritual attainment. Along with the bar- vest of these services has come the necessity of a new vision, consecrated men and the ded- ication of time and finances. Christ has been our help in ages past; He is the hope of years to come. Let us, by His help, endeavor to continue to accomplish the divinely organized mission as it moves forward in the next half-centur . Students anft iaff In Memoriam I ' .iul William Shaw We respectfully dedicate the 1959 SUNFLOWER to the memory of Professor Paul William Shaw. His death on September 11, 1958. was the result of an accident which occured while playing hall on the campus on September 3. Prof. Shaw joined the staff of Miltonvale College in 1955. After two years of service, he was recognized hv the National Science Foundation and being granted a leave of absence from Miltonvale College, he spent a year at the University of Illinois under the sponsorship of the Foundation. He and his family returned to MWC on September 1, 1958. Of an alert mind, congenial personality and abounding talent. Prof. Shaw lived his life among us in a manner that convinced everyone of his deep purpose to keep Christ first. His influence will continue exerting its strength upon us. helping mold us into better Christians. Prof. Shaw has left us a challenge — a challenge to answer God ' s call to Christian service and carry forward the work that has been so well begun by this man of God. " I have fought a good fight. I have finished mv course. I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

In 1941, he returned as an instructor; he became the first dean of the college, and in 1951, he was elected to the presidency. ' Message from the President In this 50th anniversary year the words of the Psalmist come to me. " will remember the years, " Ps. 77:10. Indeed there is much to remember — years of planning, years of devoted effort and sacrifice, years of adversity. — and most certainly, years of achievement. rrom these years we now draw inspiration for greater years ahead. Planned expansion gives promise ol a larger field of service to the church and community. May our courage and faith match that of those whose effort have brought M. W. C. to this present happy anniversary. With Dr Paine In October, 1958.

HISTORY OF ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT The lighted cross on the bell tower of the Administration Build- ing is a memorial to Richard Vasey, from Eau Claire, Wisconsin, who was drowned while a student here, October 12, 1945. 38 Miltonvale College began her first year of operation in 1909 with offerings in theology, music, academy, and the grades. Instructors were: Silas W. Bond. President; Nellie M. Hazlehurst, Bertha 0. Emerson. Rebecca Taliaferro. Mary Taliaferro. Mrs. A. P. Boone, Rev. F. C. Hill. The first few years brought several changes. In 1913 normal training was added, consisting of one semester of methods and management and one year of reviews in geography, grammar, and reading. The elementary grades were eliminated due to crowded conditions. The seventh and eighth grades were con- tinued, however, until about 1919. In 1917 the academy was accredited. The year 1928 produced the first junior college graduate, and from that time four departments were maintained: junior college, academy, music, and the- ology. In 1946 theology was raised to a four-year college level, leading to a B. Rel. degree. By 1950 the high school had met all the requirements of the state for a first class rating, and was granted the " A classification. In 1952 the Junior College, after a long struggle to meet requirements, received state ac- creditation. In this 50th anniversary year Miltonvale College is engaged in a five-year program to expand the curri- culum, build up the library, and provide new buildings and equipment — steps toward regional acccreditation. ON THE CAMPUS STUDENT COUNCIL Cretsinger, L. Ferguson, D. Hunsinger, J. Banker, B. Paepke. This has been another successful year for the Student Council of M. W. C. The president, Francis Hubbard, has been a capable leader. He has been assisted by Kenneth Dyer, vice president; Verna Campbell, secre- tary; and Demaris Strong, treasurer; along with a com- petent group of class representatives. They were ably directed by the faculty sponsor, Mr. Davidson. Beginning its year with a student-faculty reception, followed by an all-school picnic, the Student Council went on to complete projects including setting up a new picnic area, making additions to the athletic field, and decorating the Chapel and Inn at Christmas time. They also assisted the faculty in sponsoring certain social func- tions and supervised the assembly periods. Get it jusl right, Carmen 40 HOME STUDENTS Front Row: C. Gary, R. Grover, N. Macy, S.

Ard Blomberg, and their sponsor, Miss Johnson, plunged into the 1958-59 school year with their usual spirited enthusiasm and good sportsmanship. They proved themselves, gaining permanent possession of the cov- eted Sunflower Sales Trophy by winning the contest three out of five years. Donna Cockroft led the campaign. The deter- mined Tigers, with their atmosphere of friendly competition and continual dis- play of Christian attitudes, add life and color to the campus activities.

Originally, the day was a time to bring in the bounties of the harvest to be used in the College dining hall. Other features have been added through the years; the rows of teams and wagons have given way to parking lots jammed with cars. But the day has continued to be a time of fellowship, sharing, in- spiration, and blessing. Dr. Knapp and the three living past-presidents: Rev. W. S. Freeborn, Dr. R. D. Reisdorph, Dr. Wm. F.

OUR COLLEGE CHURCH F. C. HILL MEMORIAL CHURCH The College Church was organized by Rev. H. S. Abbott on Au- gust 21, 1909, with 32 charter members. The opening of the college prompted the organization of the church. The college made the chapel available for sanctuary, and class rooms for Sunday School rooms. In 1947, the church purchased a building site and on April 20, 1954, the groundbreaking service took place. On September 9, 1956, the F. C. Hill Memorial Church was dedicated, named for a former minister of the Kansas Conference, who was for twenty years professor of Theology in MWC. ( 1909- 1929.1 FALL EVANGELIST Dr. Myron F.

The motto of the Christian Crusaders Club. " A World to Save. Our God to Serve, " aptly describes the two-fold objective of the organization. We have desired that in each member would be developed a deeper, more vital Christian life through our meeting together in times of devotion and Bible study. This devotion has found expression in outward service. We have promoted personal work through visitation and group work through gospel teams. For those who plan for Christian service, whether in full-time work or as consecrated laymen, this club has attempted to strengthen and establish Christian lives and provide training and experience in actual service. These officers have served the club this year : President, Kenneth Gooden; Vice President, David Gowan; Secretary-Treasurer. Yvonne Betters; Assistant Secretary-Treasurer. Doris Wolff. 58 GOSPEL TEAMS Six teams and a quartet sponsored by the Christian Crusaders Club have been traveling to many churches in four states.

The 1959 students continue this practical interest in missions by underwriting Miss Lois Sheri- dan. R.N.. on our African field. The Religious Life Committee now sponsors this project.

Hill Memorial Church on Decem- ber 14. 1958. Music has always been an important part of the curriculum and of school life at MWC. The first chorus consisted of fifty voices and made its first per- formance in 1916. In 1917 the chorus joined with the Clay Center Municipal Chorus to present " Olivet to Calvary, " by Maunder, and " The Holy City, " by Gaul. In 1919 the chorus performed Mendelssohn ' s " Elijah " at commence- ment time. The tradition of fine music continues at Miltonvale College — a challenge to each succeeding instructor and each gen- eration of students. SOLOISTS: Seated: F. Rutherford, D. Cockroft, M.

This year the students trounced the alumni. The history of sports in Miltonvale College dates back to 1914. when the first Athletic Association was organized. In the 1915 MONITOR the winning basketball team of the season is named as: Carl Dietrich, Oliver Wilson. Harry Williams, Chester Reed, and John Markey. Baseball was also played in the early years of the school. The 1917 SUNFLOWER shows in addition, softball, tennis, track, volleyball, and boxing. A cross-country race was fea- tured that year. The race began and ended in front of the College and covered three and three-fourths miles of Kansas prairie. More than 300 persons were present and cheering for their team. For a number of years the Rural High School gym was used for indoor basketball, but since 1952 a fine gymnasium on campus has been the center of indoor sports, physical educa- tion classes, and recreation. Not until about 1939 was athletic competition divided along literary society lines. Previously the societies concentrated on the " literary " and athletics were organized as Americans and Nationals, Chippewas and Choctaws, Spartans and Olympians, Tigers and Cubs — or whatever student fancy produced.
