The ideal of education is the formation of moral 
character and the culture of the heart. This is the supreme 
end of education — or rather this is education itself.

as the children who waited on 
the bank, swim back with the 
object between his teeth. A 
great occasion for them in 
their simple life was when men 
from nearby towns came out to 
their hospitable home and stay- 
ed days at the time and hunted. 
These were exciting days for 
Josephus. and he, boy-like, long- 
ed for the day when he would 
be "big enough' 'to hunt. 
Early Home Training 
Their early home life was a 
happy one and just before mov- 
ing into a new house, their 
mother became a Christian. 
This exemplified the new, clean, 
unsoiled and unsulhed life she 
was to live, leaving the worn 
out, the cast off and meager life 
behind for the fresh, clean and 
full life. "I am come that ye 
may have life, and have it more 

and there sweeps 
across the vast expanse wave 
after wave resembling ocean 
billows. This may be termed 
one of God's masterpieces, 
"When I consider thy heavens, 
the work of thy fingers, the 
moon and the stars, which thou 
hast ordanied, what is man. that 
thou art mindful of him? and 
the son of man that thou visitest 
him. For thou hast made him 
a little lower than the angels, 
and hast crowned him with 
glory and honor. Thou hast put 
all things under his feet; all 
sheep and oxen, yea, and the 
beasts of the field; the fowl of 
the air. and the fish of the sea, 
and whatsoever passeth through 
the paths of the seas. O Lord, 
our Lord, how excellent is thy 
name in all the earth!"

Through this micration of his would become a Christian, 

faniilj', from Kentucky to the Never for an instant did the 

awareness of this promise leave 
him though many years elapsed 
before he fulfilled this promise 
to his own satisfaction. 

When only eighteen years of 
age, there came a thrill, uJi- 
known to him before — the eter- 
nal, enticing, captivating call to 
arms! So Josephus donned the 
uniform and for three years was 
engaged in war and its inevit- 
able horrors and misfortunes. 
From November 1863 to March 
of the next year, he spent in 
the Confederate Prison on Belle 
Island. Virginia. The hardships 
of prison life need only be men- 
tioned to be sympathetically 
evaluated. Upon release Joe 
emerged .not the strong, ener- 
getic, robust Joe of former days, 
but a slender, starving, emaciat- 
ed form of 114 pounds, with a 
deeper glow in the eyes, and a 
firmer conviction in the mind, 
and a wider knowledge in the 
tieart. Thus are the lessons of 
life learned, and the foolishness 
of strife and hatred among 
brothers is made evident and 
real to tone experiencing such 
days as composed the pages of 
Josephus Hopwod's' life during 
these three years. During this 
time many temptations lay 
around his pathway; curses 
could be heard on the hps of 
comrades, chicken stealing be- 
came a great sport, card-playing 
a common practice and drink- 
ing the road to oblivion. In this 
period of his hfe, when in the 
service of his country, he was 
plastic, responsive, and hospit- 
able to new suggestions and 
new ideals, but Joe kept his 
mind pure, his lips and soul 
clean and his body undefiled, 
for always, before the mind of 
Joe. burning as surely and 
brightly as the sun that shines 
by day, loomed the promise, 
"Lord. I will become a Chris- 

Meeti Future Wife 

Full of energy and the vigor 
of life the youthful mind, in 
accordance with Nature, began 
to feel the thrill of friendship, 
companionship, ripening into 
love. The object of his affec- 
tions was Miss Sarah Eleanor 
LaRue. who at the lime was at- 
tending school in Missouri. The 
base of the biological triangle 
is in this case substantial, for 

the very name LaRue implies 
French ancestry and all that 
goes with the spirightly. ver- 
satile, and resourceful French 
character. Her mother was a 
Hardin, and that name is well 
known for its varied achieve- 
ment and honorable public ser- 
vice in the Blue Grass State, 
The beginning and realization of 
this courtship were eight years 
apart Letters which passed be- 
tween Mr. Hopwood and Miss 
LaRue are so rare in character, 
and unique in manner, that they 
command attention. Between 
the lines of the letter which fol- 
lows, you may read the very 
soul of the writer: 

Sneedville. Tenn. 
March 23, 1874. 
Miss S. E. LaRue, 

Time, Loved one. is said, to 
be unrecokoned in that beauti- 
ful world which is to be, but 
in this temporal world, as the 
adjective shows, time is an 
element in all our thoughts con- 
cerning it. We think about it, 
we try to measure it and tr>' 
to estimate its value. I thought 
of the days and the mail days, 
which would bring me a letter. 
The days came, the mail days 
came, (this is one) but they 
brought me no letter, no paper, 
hence brought no gladness- Such 
times always seem to me or to 
remind me of a hungry human 
going where he expects food, 
yet finds none. 

However you have doubtless 
had some such experience and 
know the feeUngs in spite of all 
our philosophy. And yet, I often 
enjoy a sort of laugh at self, like 
a thinking being independent of 
the world and its associations 
would be expected to do. I once 
heard of a man or woman, in 
Saint Louis who died and said 
he stood about and looked at his 
own body same as those around 
did. Sometimes we see our own 
foibles and weaknesses as ho 
did his body. 

Another week has gone. How 
are you? What has been done 
for evil, for good? What for 
hope, for heaven? Anything for 
lave, for life? Could we not 
enjoy a talk along there? Would 
you not be willing to talk phi- 
losophy for a time? Then visit 
the Y o s e m i t e Valley, read 
Isaiah, Paradise Lost take a 
buggy ride, talk of lite, its work, 
its hope, its charm, doing good, 
Heaven, Love? 

How long did your friend stay 
with you?

The weather has become cold 
down here last few days. I ex- 
pect it is more cold at your 
house, but then those flowers 
will have time enough to grow, 
yet our school will be half out 
this week — twelve weeks spent 
away and next week we start 
another twelve. And so life 
goes, by weeks, by months, by 
years, and old people coimt 
back by decades, young people 
count forward by the same, but 
with God we suppose there is 
not count, yet we cannot under- 
stand that thought 

Write to me. I love you. 
hence love to receive your let- 
ters. Many good thoughts for 
your folks at home.

"God be with you"? '

Dedicated To Teaching 

The child is father of the man 
and it follows as the night the 
day. that manhood found the 
same purity of mind, cleanliness 
of speech, undauntednss of pur- 
pose, and love of service as boy- 
hood. "His strength was as the 
strength of ten, because his 
heart was pure." After many 
internal struggles between con- 
flicting impulses and possibiU- 
ties of service to God and man, 
he definitely reached the con- 
clusion to dedicate his life to 
eduction in the South. There 
cduld have been no appeal to 
financial compensation, personal 
ease, or advancement that lured 
him to the South in the days 
following the War between the 
States. Providence guided him 
to one of the neediest counties 
in the nation for his eearUest 
educational efforts in the south.

Fate of the City 

After the discovery of Amer-

Orient were opened in the 16th 
centup.-. Venice was doomed. 
That she withstood her enemies 
in war and trade from 697 to 
1797 is testimony to her gr,eat 
strength. But by the mid- 
eighteenth centur>' Venice was 
a shell of her former self. The 
masks worn at her brilliant car- 
nivals seemed to symbolize her 
false position. Then in 1797 a 
handful of Napoleon's troops 
put an end to the once proud

At Boston University^ * 

Back to Boston, this young 
lady entered the Boston Uni- 
versity School of Religious Ed- 
ucation, and after some study 
there, transferred to a job in 
Washmgton, D. C. 

In the nation's capital, Mary 
worked for the Women's Inter- 
national League for Peace and 
Freedom. For some time she 
was private secretary to Miss 
M Young, devoting herself to 
the promotion of the famed 
Children's Theatre, operating 
in principal cities of the United 

Her Marriage 

While in Washington, Mary 
met Mr. Aubrey McKinney, a 
young Shreveport, Louisiana 
chemistry student who had at- 
tended Tyler Junior College in 
Texas. They were married in 
1935 and soon thereafter moved 
to Austin, Texas. Here the 
young couple began studying at 
the University of that state. 
Mrs. McKinney continued her 
religious training, while her 
husband earned his A.B. degree. 
He also received the Master of 
arts and doctor of philosophy 
degipes in chemistry from the 
University of Texas. Later, he 
taught chemistry at his alma 
mater in Austin. 

Mrs. McKinney jokingly says 
"About all we've done during 
the past several years is to 
move about the country. So 
next, we moved from Austin to 
Roswell, New Mexico, where 
Dr. McKinney had employment 
as a research chemist for the 

Their First ChUd 

The couple returned to Aus- 
tin and during their several- 
months stay, Mrs. McKinney 
established the Toyland Nurs- 
ery School. This project ab- 
sorbed most of her interest until 
her first child, Loma, was bom. 

The family next found itself 
removed to Knoxville, Tennes- 
see. Here in the state univers- 
ity. Dr. McKinney played the 
role of professor in the depart- 
ment of chemistry. The second 
girl, Bonnie, was bom in Knox- 
ville. Then came a skip from 
Tennessee to Angola, New 
York, where the chemist work- 
ed for National Analine re- 
search. In addition to her 
mounting duties as a mother, 
Mrs. McKinney found time to 
serve as chaplain of her church 
Guild and to teach a Sunday 
School class. 

Back To Southwest 

Aubrey, Mary Louisa, Loma 
and Bonnie again traveled 
westward and this time stop- 
ped at Dallas, Texas. Mary took 
time out again to open and op- 
erate a private kindergarten 
which she appropriately named 
"The Bo Peep Nursery School." 
She also found time to be rec- 
reational leader for an adult 
Sunday School class, a Bible 
school teacher study leader for 
the Women's Society of Chris-

Here, as in Dallas, she was for 
some time study leader for the 
WSCS. For a number of months 
Mary was book reviewer for the 
Elizabethton Daily Star and 
conducted a children's story 
hour every Saturday morning 
over local radio station WBEJ. 
She discontinued the radio pro- 
gram two years ago, before her 
third child, David, was bom. 
Each summer she conducts a

Contributor To Periodicals 
As a writer. Mrs. McKiimey 
has devoted her efforts to pro- 
ducing religious articles and 
works dealing with juvenile 
problems. Many of her literary 
efforts have been published in 
leading religious journals in this 
country. In the September. 1948 
issue of Workers With Youth 
her article "Adopt A Student — 
It's Fun," appeared. The writer 
turned her attention to the 
comic book problem and first 
produced "The Bloodies or the 
Objectionable Comic Books" 
which was issued in the October 

1949 Hearthstone. And in the 
Lookout (February 13, 1949) 
"It's Time For Parents to Do

Student At Milligan 
Mary McKinney, now a citi- 
zen of the United States, en- 
rolled at Milligan in September, 
1949. Systematic and thorough 
in her work, she is quite at 
home in the classroom, although 
she makes clear that going to 
school is a secondary interest to 
that of being a devoted wife 
and mother. Her busy day be- 
gins early. After routine house- 
hold chores are taken care of she 
goes for the maid who comes to 
the home and takes care of two- 
year-old David. Then Lorna and 
Bonnie must be taken to school. 
Next she takes her husband to 
his work, and then shuttles off 
in the family car toward Milli- 
gan where there is still time to 
spare before those nine-o'clock 
classes. Religion is Mary's ma- 
jor field of study at Milligan, 
although she has special interest 
in psychology. 

"Milligan is such a friendly 
school," the industrious house- 
wife and student remarks. "I'd 
even like to teach someday in 
such a college at this." 

Aubrey, Mary. Loma, Bonnie 
and David McKinney are. quite 
at home in their newly-acquired

An Era Begins 

The new semester has brought with it a vision and the 
beginning of reahty for a period of progress at Milligan 
College. The spring term of 1950 was opened under the 
ccmpetent leadership of a new president. He comes to 
impart to us a brand new outlook lor the year ahead, and 
to set for this institution of learning a more broadening 
horizon. We are beginning what the Stampede believes 
to be a new era in Milligan history. 

History is made more interesting if we single out the 
countjess incidents when great men were Providentially 
sent, it seems, to become leaders of a worthy cause. 

The Southern Appalachian Highlands needed a school 
where men and women could be trained in the liberal arts 
with emphasis on Christian education. Josephus and 
Sara Hopwood stopped on the banks of Buffalo Creek, took 
over Colonel Barker's infant '"Male and Female Academy" 
and a need was fulfilled. From that time to the present 
thousands have sacrificed to make Milligan what she is 

With the backing of that multitude of friends, and 
the untiring labors of nine presidents who have preceded 
Dr. Walker, Milligan has ridden out the devastating years 
of three wars and has survived. When she again stood at 
the crossroads in recent years, her right course seemed 
assured in the person of an outstanding scholar, teacher 
and Christian leader. 

With the coming of Dr. Dean Everest Walker, Mil- 
ligan faces a new world with renewed faith. Under his 
guidance we hope to push ahead to a new unity, and a new 
height of progress. 

The time is right. The Leader is fitting. Prospects 
are good-

After securing the helpmate, 
Sarah Eleanor La Rue, this town 
became the object of their fit-st 
project, The couple had antici- 
pated, as their wedding trip, a 
visit to Mamouth Cave, in the 
bride's own state. However, 
circumstances preventing, they 
hastened to Sneedville, the near- 
est railroad station being 28 
miles from the town itself. Ar- 
riving at their destination they 
got off the train and awaiting 
them was a charming one horse 
topless buggy, lined with green 
plush. Such a night! Perfectly 
elated and almost oblivious to 
the steady downpour of August 
rain, the bride and groom drove 
28 miles. Mrs. Hopwood crossing 
mountains for the first time in 
her life; and added to this ex- 
perience the Holston and Clinch 
Rivers, which they__ necessarily 
had to cross, were both almost 
to the point of overflowing their 
banks, and although unable to 
discern the opposite shore, they 
drove the horse into the swell- 
ing flood, and came out safely 
on the other side. From this 
night, the couple lived and 
moved and acted as one indivi- 
dual, one unit in the kingdom of 
God, and the name "Hopwood" 
conjures up in the minds of 
hundreds, nay thousands of peo- 
ple not just Dr. Hopwod but his 
yoke fellow for more than a 
half a century, Sarah La Rue 

"It lakes a soul 

To move a body; it takes a 
high-souled man 

To move the masses even to 
a cleaner stye; 

It takes the ideal to blow an 
inch aside 

The dust of the actual." 
Apostle to the T^uIUunjuns' 

Upon arrivial in Sneedville. 
the couple went to the hotel of 
the town. The Cobb Hotel, and 
here they made their home dur- 
ing the year which they lived 
in Sneedville. This charming 
little town rested at the foot of 
Newman's Ridge, a town of ap- 
proximately 500 inhabitants. 
The topography of Sneedville 
was flat but rising at its imme- 
diate edge like an impenatrable 
wall ran this high ridge of 
mountains, separating the town 
from the outside world. New- 
man's Ridge, these huge masses 
of creation, were literally seeth- 
ing with curious specimen of 
humanity, a mixed breed of 
Indian and whites known as the 
Mullunjuns. These people live- 
ed in the most primitive fashion 
and their chief means of live- 
lihood was the manufacture of 
that age old "liquid fire," com 
whiskey. The revenue officers 
remonstrated whenever possible, 
but the offenders could see no 
justice or reason in paying tax 
on a product made from their 
own corn which they themsel- 
ves plowed and harvested. 

As a typical example we may 
cite that well known individual, 
Mrs. Murry. who lived alom- in 
her hut on the side of the moun- 
tain, and who sent her liquor 
to Sneedville to be peddled on 
the street, sold by the cupful, 
the coffcepotful, or any other 
vessellful available for measure. 

This sister was the thorn in the 
nesh to the revenue officers who 
felt her case to be positively 
hopeless. Finally, a young am- 
bitious revenue officer was .sent, 
and after a week's effort, his 
results were stated thus in a 
telegram to headquarters "She's 
catchabte, but not fetchable." 

The year at Sneedville v/as. 
taken as a whole, a successful 
one, Mr. Hopwood being the 
only teacher whom the towns- 
people had allowed to remain 
the entire school year, as it had 
been their cusom whenever the 
teacher did not do as they dic- 
tated to run him off. 

One of the characteristics 
which made him great, was 
brought into play during this 
year. Realizing that every heart 
contained perfection's germ, yet 
believeing this germ to be more 
capable of maturation in some 
individuals than in others. Mr. 
Hopwood, at the end of the first 
year in Sneedville, felt that the 
Lord had larger work for him 
to do and so he left the town, a 
practically penniless man as far 
as material wealth is concern- 
ed, riding an animal bought with 
a promistory note. This belov- 
ed little horse he called Morgan. 
His words following, betray the 
almost human aspect in which 
he. as well as his wife, consi- 
dered the speechless group of 
the Creator's handiwork. Tlie 
second excerpt is a fragment 
of a letter to Mrs. Hopwood 
written in 1877. 


In July. 1875, I landed from 
the cars at Rockcastel River. 
Kentuckj', en route to Sneed- 
ville. Tenn. London, Laurel 
County, Ky., sixteen miles 
away was the first point to 
be reached. Seeking convey- 
ance I soon found a horse and a 
hght boy and was ready. As 
I now remember, we started 
after 2:00 P. M. and reachd 
London before six o'clock. Never 
have I enjoyed a more charm- 
ing horseback ride as to ease, 
and grace of the animal's travel. 

I though,t "Oh, if I could own 
a horse with this pleasing mo- 
tion." By varied means of 
travel fool, wagon, and horse. 
over the mountains and across 
the country, in a few days, I 
was at Sneedville. and a week 
later ready to leave. Though 
having but little money, a gen- 
uine friend, Isaac W. Campbell, 
offered to sell me a three year 
old colt. He was willing to 
accept the statement "I will give 
your boy his tuition, and pay 
his board wherever I may teach 
this year" as more than pay- 
ment for the colt, Morgan, On 
the first trail. I discovered in 
the animal that charming mo- 
tion so enjoyed in the other 
horse. The proposition was ac- 
cepted and I rode away to seek 
a new work in a strange coun- 

The colt's easy springing half 
trot and running walk rapidly 
developed. A kind, gentle dis- 
position was manifest He would 
wait for me. He would follow 
me. Travelling alone we were 
soon forming a close firendship. 
Buffalo Institute was reached, 
that journey ended. But our 
longer sep-'ice together increased 
the attachment. 

Time gave him his growth. 
Let us look at him. He was a 
light chestnut sorrel, fourteen 
hands and a half high, with a 

slightly arched necfe, ears just 
right, and a finely tapering head 
with large brown eyes as royal 
as an eagel's. His breast was 
full enought. his shoulders and 
forelegs shaped for a traveller, 
his body only medium round, 
and his hips steep and hind legs 
more than usually crooked, the 
pastor joints conning down close 
to the ground, giving the spring 
to his motion. His hair was soft 
like plush, his mane as silken 
threads, his veins on the sxir- 
face; his blood full of both gen- 
tleness and energy. Man's 
best friend. The first year he 
made small circuits around 
Buffalo Institute, the second 
larger, the third he went socres 
and fifties of miles away. 
Still, that energy abounded- He 
would climb a mountain, scale 
a cliff, swim a river, or make 
a sixty-five mile travel in one 
day, just as his master willed. 
As he sped along the way that 
pleasing face would turn back 
to the rider for bread or apple, 
which was both given and re- 
ceived as a great pleasure. I 
am sorry now I ever jerked that 
bridle rein a few times, so gen- 
tle is the memory of him. That 
horse has gone with me to the 
deep forest solitudes and heard 
what no human on earth ever 
heard — the soul's deep struggles 
to be free from sin and get close 
to God who loves us. He has 
stood there by me in the day's 
heat and at midnights' hour, 
when we pass those places now 
his image is present and his 
nibble at the leaves almost 
heard. Where is Morgan today? 
Can a life cease to be? 

Five years of this friendship 
and CO work passed. Its plea- 
sures were many. But the fre- 
quent necessity of heeding the 
injunction to "Turn not away 
from him who would borrow" 
was felt to be more a duty than 
a privilege, so strong is our self- 
isness. While Morgan and I 
were in the field, there was a 
loving power at home. She 
welcomed us back and with 
gathering friends cheered us on 
for greater work. 

Morgan Sold For Cause of 

Christian Education 
'The building is too smaU." 
"A larger one must go up." "God 
will carry us through," were the 
thoughts born midst the daring 
mountain crags, and confirmed, 
we beleieve. in the courts of 
Heaven. It was begun. It took 
money. We knew it would- It 
took labor. That was expected. 
It took more money and more 
labor and called gain. It took 
credit The time soon came to 
meet this. Where is the money? 
Where the power? Friends 
gave, but the cry was not hush- 
ed. It came again. Did an>' 
conscientious reader ever re- 
ceive a letter and know its con- 
tents before it wiis opened? 
Such letters came. How can 
this one be met? Can I part 
with my horse? Can I sell to 
strangers the ■ gentle favorite 
which finds no grass so sweet 
as that close to home's door? 
and no food so good as bread 
from my loved wife's hand? 
Can I sell my friend? Such was 
duty's call. Braced with cour- 
age, without telling that one at 
home the full of it, I rode him, 
for the last time, to town, and 
not until the hand was placed 
on his soft arched neck to say 
goodbye did a tear fall. I walk- 
ed home to see the tears on 
mother's cheek but with the 
happy consciousness that one 
more debt was paid. I would 
suffer thus again to pay a debt, 
but not to be governor of Ten- 
nessee for honor's sake.

Dr. Thomas Milligan 

Dr. Thomas MiUigan's life has 
been very full, and definitely 
varied— not at all like the im- 
pression received from his calm, 
cool, and collected manner. 
Bom near Clinton, Tennesse ,he 
later moved to Athens where 
he went to Tennessee Wesleyan 
and tied for first place in schol- 
arship. He then went to Lincoln 
Memorial University where he 
graduated as salutatorian. Smart, 
eh? He took up public welfare 
work after college and did news- 
paper writing on the side — 
feature articles and a devotional 
series. When his job seemed 
uncertain because of the chang- 
ing politics in government, he 
entered the Southern Baptist 
Theological Seminary in Louis- 
ville with the idea of becoming 
a minister. His health prevent- 
ed foreign mission work which 
he wanted, so he decided to 
major in psychology and teach. 
Dr. Milligan got his degree in 
1948 and Milligan College came 
next. He and his family (two 
younguns) live about three 
fourths of the way into John- 
son City. 

Students seem to enjoy his 
classes, especially those sessions 
that deal with the psychology 
of tracking down a mate. ^ (No 
definite reports can be had as 
to whether it works or not).

Buffs Battle Pioneers In Cheek Gym Tomorrow Night 

Milligan Record to Date: 1 1 Wins, 4 Losses — 5 Gaines Remain on Roster 


With the State dc-feat still fresh on every- 
body's mind, this reporter will try for the 
moment to recapture some of the other 
games that have been played since the 
"Stampede" has been to press. 

After a record of 5 wins and 4 losses the 
"Buffs" hit a winning stride that brought 
them way above the 500 per cent- mark. 
Their first victim was the L. M. U. Rail- 
splitters and they were defeated to the tune 
of 64-49. In this game Hathaway and Hyder 
with 21 and 20 points respectively led the 
Buffs to victory. For the losers McCarter 
was high with 14 points. Traveling to the 
Virginia side of the state, the Buffs en- 
countered a strong and fighting Emory and 
Henry team and fell before them to the 
tune of 80-71. In this game the Wasps 
kept up a terrific pace and never let up. 
pulling ahead in the final four minutes 
of play. For the Buffs Hathaway, Hyder, 
and Forbes hit the double figures in scoring, 
17, 17 and 15 points respectively. For the 
winners Humphreys had 19. Following their 
defeat at the hands of the Wasps, the Milli- 
gan cagers got hot and ran the Governors 

of Austin Peay to defeat. The 

final score read the Buffs 104 shot defeated the Herd. 64 to At Happy Valley

Signs With Johnson City 

While the basketball season 
is still dominating the sports 
pages and the favored conver- 
sation, baseball rumors and 
contracts are also being dis- 
cussed, Milligan's Sid Hath- 
away has signed at 1950 con- 
tract with the local Johnson City 
Cardinals. Last year, Sid play- 
ted with the Elizabethton Locals, 
hitting a lusty 323, for an en- 
viable average in any league. 
No salary terms are known, but 
the smile on the athlete's face 
offers an indication. The sign- 
ing of Sid is expected to bol- 
ster Red Bird hitting consid- 

Local school fans and area 
fans will observe the approach- 
ing season with eyes focused on 
Sid. Manager Schodle of the 
Red Birds comments: "Hath- 
away's speed, hitting, and all- 
round defensive ability should 
help the home team immensely."

It has been noted that several of the students seem to feel that 
they belong to this group of the exceptional few. It has become 
a common occurrpnce for students to take magazines and reserve 
books without proper authority, when they are pressed to do 
an assignment. 

The library is open on an average of fifty hours a week, 
which ought to allow ample time for getting assignments, es- 
pecially since all reserve books have privileges. It is impossible 
for the librarian or any of the student helpers to stand at the 
doors and carefully check all books as the individual leaves the 
library rooms. 

The librarian kindly requests that you — each of you — be fair 
and thoughtful. Use your library privilege; do not abuse it.

Article By Spanish Professor On Milligan 
Stunmer School Faculty In 1949 

Professor Antonio Arjibay. Principal of Presbyterian Schools, 
Inc.. Encrucijada, Cuba, has written an article in the religious 
newspaper Heraldo Christiano, in praise of Milligan- The com- 
mentar>- on the Termessee college is translated from the Spanish 
for THE STAMPEDE by Miss Marie Smith. 

"A SuRuner In Milligan College" 

Milligan College, in the mountains of Tennessee, is a place of 
incomparable beauty. It is the ideal location to hve in eternal 
contemplation of the physical beauties of this world. 

And Milhgan College was the home of seventeen Cubans 
during the summer of 1949. There we forgot the hot summer of 
our land and truly we hved in a fresh spring, using light blankets 
at night, although it seems incredible. 

Milligan College is a Christian college, its faculty hves a 
sincere Christianity without pretense, practicing the truths of 
the Bible, while all the students live in a wholesome, elevated 
Christian comradeship. Its rules are governed by a high prin- 
ciple of liberty without extremes and with an affectionate dis- 
cipUne which infiltrates in such a way that each one does the 
right thing in a discipUned way without there existing the least 
desire not to do it. 

Milligan College was a summer home for seventeen Cubans. 
We learned to love that piece of foreign land as our own and 
upon saying goodbye we felt that we were leaving something 
which in reahty belonged to us, as when one leaves his home. 
We left with the certainty that one day we would return to live 
in that affectionate land for which reason we only said, "Until 
we meet again." 

Milligan College is the ideal place to relax physically and to 
elevate oneself" spiritually. The things of the spirit came to us 
with the atmosphere and we felt nearer the Creator, "When I 
contemplate the heavens that you created . . ." 

Several things impressed us at Milligan College, among them 
the vesper services held in the open air each week. 

We are familiar with what inspirational vesper services are, 
and for that reason we dare to mention those of Milligan. The 
talks of Chaplain Elmer Lewis, who was a chaplain in Europe 
during the past war, and those of Dr. York, remain engraved in 
the minds and hearts of all of us who had the privilege of listen- 
ing to them. We Cubans lifted our religious songs toward our 
God; we sang in our language, and at the same time they sang 
the same hymns, directed to the same God. but in a different 
language. The vesper services at Milligan are an unforgettable 
experience for the group of Cubans who lived in that place .during 
the summer of 1949.

Bob Brown Entered Radio 
'By Accident' At Age Of 14 

Milligan Student Is Versatile Maestro at the Microphone 

True to the earliest experiences of many a radio announcer, 
Robert Brown, Milligan freshman, and son of English professor 
Mrs. Alma Brown, happened into the radio broadcasting field 
by downright accident. The story of his fascinating job in com- 
munications begins back in Knoxville. Tennessee, where Bob's 
father, Alva Ross Brown, had been president of Johnson Bible 
College. At the age of fourteen the youngster became captivated 
by what to him was the glamor of the radio game. He'd skip 
off from school and pass many hours observing and absorbing 
the routine workings of radio station WBIR, Knoxville. 
Played Part On Children's Program 

In those days' Irene Hodges, well-known speech instructor in 
Knoxville, conducted a children's program every Saturday morn- 
ing on the local WBIR. Once on one of such programs Irene was 
desperately in need of someone to play a masculine part, so 
young Brown, caught loitering around the station, was thrust 
on the job. His voice, developed far beyond his age, became an 
asset to the regular show, and lent support to the popular pro- 
gram for approximately three months thereafter. 
Met An Emergency 

Then one morning the regular staff announcer failed toshow 
up for duty because of illness. As the programming had to pro- 
ceed, the schoolboy here met his great opportunity. Backing up 
the microphone with a somewhat unsteady and uncertain voice, 
as Bob relates, he filled in for three hours on the station's reg- 
ularly scheduled programs. In reference to this memorable inci- 
dent, the MiUigan student recalls "that those three hours seemed 
like three days." A fifteen-minute newscast seemed like an 
eternity, he vividly remembers. 

Just after entering Knox High School, the manager of WBIR 
recommended Bob for a job on the newly-opened Knoxville out- 
let, WIBK. The boy's duties as staff announcer extended through 
his high school days. WorTt was at odd times and after classes. 
Upon graduating from Knox High one summer of loafing was 
tacked onto Bob's career. ; 

In the fall of 1948 he matriculated at the University of Ten- 
nessee, where his mother was then teaching in the English de- 
partment. The university freshman soon formed a friendship with 
Ken Wright, director of the Radio Workshop on^The Hill. Wright 
sent his student to WROL, one of Knoxville's larger stations. 
There he performed the routine duties of staff announcer and soon 
became known over the Appalachian listening area for his disc 
jockey programs of "Saturday Showdown" and the nightly "Con- 
cert Hall" over WROL's frequency modulation transmitter. 
On Network For Historic Program 

On March 19, 1949 the eyes of the world were focused on Oak 
Ridge. Tennessee, "The Atomic City." On that day this center of 
the great government research project was officially declared 
an open city, when a tape across the main gate was broken by 
atomic energy. At this momentous ceremony high officials and 
dignitaries took part on the program. Major radio networks car- 
ried the description of this event coast-to-coast and to the world. 

Bobby Brown, again on an emergency assignment because an 
announcer was lacking, went to work for the special events de- 
partment of WIBK. This station kept a continuous line avail- 
able. But before the marathon pjirade in Oak Ridge got under 
way. Bob went on the air interv-iewing celebrities at the Andrew 
Johnson Hotel in Knoxville. Cecil B. DeMille, Adolph Menjou. 
Marie McDonald, Adele Jergens, Rod Cameron, Lee Bowman; 
"Queen for a Day's" Jack Bailey, Tennessee Governor Gordon 
Browning, and Vice President Alben Barkley were among those 
who took part in the Ridge City ceremony. 

On the lengthy and giant parade. Bob fed thirty-five minutes 
of color description over the Mutual Broadcasting System. 
Meets Many People 

The nineteen-year-old Milligan student and now announcer 
for WBEJ, Elizabethton. is in a job which affords opportunity to 
meet many people, some of whom are notables in the entertain- 
ment world. Guy Lombardo, Sammy Kaye, T. Dorsey, Les 
Brown arc some of the outstanding band leaders, and vocalist 
Doris Day, whom he has met and assisted in putting their pro- 
grams on the air. Bob recalls the memorable evening when 
Clark Gable came to Knoxville. stopped by the radio studios "for 
a long evening visit of chatting and coffee drinking." 
Comes To Milligan 

In September, 1949, Mrs. Alma Brown came to Milligan to 
teach in the English Department. Her son left WROL, and pass- 
ing up an offer for work on a Lenoir City station, then under 
construction, came to Milligan. 

January 24 of this year Bobby joined the staff of Elizabeth- 
ton's WBEJ. whore he has gained popularity through "Kertin 
Kapers." and Sunday night "Concert Hall."

A random excursion through 
the cemetery behind Cheek Ac- 
tivity Building will provide as 
interesting a study as a quest 
through a museum or art giil- 
lery. Mark Twain once cin- 
ceiyed the idea that it is \\-\'- 
;ize of a thing that tells ' 
story, but slightly aside iiirt. 
the famed literarian's view, it 
would seem that here it is th<f 
pattern rather than the size 
that conveys the story. Even 
though there is a significant 
contrast between the sizes of 
markers in the cemetery behind 
Cheek, the most noticeable thing 
is the difference in make-up. 
Alongside the impressive pol- 
ished marble or granite mass 
are the humble little blocks and 
slabs of stone in conservative 

People have long been aware 
of the seemingly importance of 
design, even when it comes to 
thmgs like life, death, and im- 
mortality. Those who direct 
study to the several designs of 
monuments find that even the 
most detailed parts of the sculp- 
tor's work may relate a story 
of dedication and tribute. 
Symbolism Is Varied 

On some of the grave markers 
out in the pltrt behind the Mil- 
ligan print shop is to be found 
a wide variety of symbolism. 
There are first to be noticed 
types of crosses, variations of 
the Latin design of two arms. 
One has a circle at the inter- 
section of the arms. This is an 
indication of immortality, ac- 
cording to religious tradition. 
The three-tiered bases of these 
monuments speak of the three 
persons of the Trinity. Of com- 
mon design in the acanthus leaf, 
more commonly known as the 
motif of the capital for the 
Greek Corinthian column. This 
embeUishment of the stone- 
cutter, according to unwritten 
law. is representative of a 
heavenly garden. 

Materials Differ 

Gray granite, white marble, 
and the characteristic Tennessee 
pink marble, together with low- 
ly field and soapstone comprise 
the list of materials which have 
gone into the making of these 
markers. There is one in Ver- 
mont white marble, which re- 
sponds well to the intricate 
carving, to bear the delicate 
likeness of regal lilies and the 
Rose of Sharon. The lily is a 
suggestion of purity, while the 
rose is befitting the quality of 
perfect love. The three heart- 
shaped leaflets of the shamrock 
is added to the list of designs. 
This flower, adopted by St. 
Patrick, illustrates the doctrine 
of the Trinity. And there is the 
every-linging ivy vine speak? 
ing of the virture of faithfulness. 

A lone gravestone is carved 
in the shape of an arch, in- 
dicative of triumph over death. 
The dove in flight heralds peace 
in the world of no strive nor 
setting sun. Of special interest 
are three works in massive 
granite. One is partially drap- 
ped with a delicately-chiseled 
curtain, indicating that in this 
present life man knows only in 
part, but that in the future the 
riddles of life will be unravel- 
ed. On the next one is to be 
seen an opened Book of Books. 
From the Living Oracles has 
been torn asunder the veil.

High School Seniors 
Get Pre-CoUege Foot-

Seven seniors from Monlerc-> 
High School, Monterey, Tennes- 
see, are spending a few days in 
football practice, in prospect of 
their joining the Buffalo Herd 
next September. 

The young athletes are Joe 
Tudor, 190 pounds, quarterback; 
Dolan Tudor, 190, end; Harvey 
Tudor, 175, guard; Van Nickens, 
190, center; Buford Sutton, 205, 
guard; Richard Milligan, 205, 
guard; and Gene Peters, 160, 
quarterback. All have played 
four years high school football.

Monterey High School. 

which at one time covered the 
light of truth. On a rugged 
shaft of granite is a cfTisled en- 
trance with two gates which 
swing inward. Beyond these 
gates thrown ajar is planted an 
anchor, telling of the hope of 
the human soul inside the har- 
bor of the Haven of Rest. 

Exploring further among the 
resting places, one can locate a 
marker bearing a hand with 
forefinger upturned — heaven-"

Lost In Time — Found In 

But there are also sepulchers 
behind Cheek Hall whose mark- 
ers tell interesting stories by a 
strange symbolism. There are 
approximately twenty-four 
graves whose identifications are 
lost. .No magic of the graphic 
art by a sculptor's chisel and 
mallet enchances the monu- 
ments to these tombs. If in 
the case of a rough fieldstone 
or a limestone boulder — or even 
nothing at all, to the casual 
observer there is no story of 
hope or reverence — only neg- 
lect and oblivion. Here memory 
lends a hand. Such a one is 
the final resting place of Jesse 
C. Houck, promising young sen- 
ior. Class of 1890. whose dreams 
of building a great college for 
his mountaineer people in 
North Carolina ended in de- 
feat when the student fell be- 
fore the typhoid scourge. He 
was buried near his Alma Mater 
without any of his relatives' at- 
tending the funeral, and none 
of them have ever known the 
location of the grave. 

And there is the itinerant 
preacher, who, roaring like the

Youngest Student In Milligan 
History Lies Here 

A beautiful account behind 
one of these unmarked but re- 
membered graves is recorded 
in the memoirs of Founder- 
President Josephus Hopwood. 
Near the center of the cemetery 
rearward of Cheek Hall is a 
short, almost unnoticed 
mound, which some thoughful 
neighbor must have sometime 
recurited with earth. Such is 
the place of rest for little Jean 
Kinney, whose mother brought 
the eight-year-old child here 
from Minnesota. Even though 
Jean was a precocious child. 
her mother was disappointed 
that Milligan had no depart- 
ment for a student of such 
tender age. The little girl show- 
ed unusual aptitude in music 
and was allowed to audit some 
preparatory classes for her own 
interest and profit. The moth- 
er, who was also in school here, 
was soon surprised to learn that 
Jean took high rank in her 
classes and held that rank 
month after month throughout 
the year. 

But at commencement time 
of that year, the little girl be- 
came violently ill with dip- 
theria, could not play her sel- 
ections on the program. In a 
short time the child was taken 
by death. 

"Above her httle home," wrote 
Josephus Hopwood. "the sweet- 
est songsbirds made music all 
the day long, and close by are 
the tall maples whose waving 
shadows play over the grass 
where Jean loved to romp . . , 
No sweeter vision of child life 
ever came to the school than 
that which vanished from our 
view when little Jean Kinney 
awoke from a beautiful earthly 
dream into the radiance of a 
heavenly morning."

SIGNS OF SPRING — Return of the vernal season following a late visit of winter to this re-

Nature's symbols of new life once more greet the stroller over the campus.

and Paul Bauer, junior, of Buffalo, New York, taking time out from study and class work 
to examine some wild flowers and get the feel of green earth to bare feet, on Anglin Field, 
near the lily pond. So suggestive was the balmy weather that these two students later went 
wading in Buffalo Creek. 

To Cement The Bonds Of Pan-American Friendahips — 


Last June when Antonio Arjibay assumed duties as teacher 
of Spanish for summer classes here, he brought along his family 
and several friends from the island republic of Cuba. These two 
photographs show the professor and family and most of the stu- 
dents who were enrolled here last summer for a special course 
m English under Miss Marie Smith. 

The professor from the West Indies islands was secured to 
teach the special courses in Spanish in an intensive endeavor to 
offer full language advantages to students attending the summer 

The trip to East Tennessee represented the first visit to the 
United States for the professor's family and most of the students, 
although Mr. Arjibay had been to this country several times 

Two of the students were actually teachers in different schools 
back home. One of the younger boys even came to the States 
with the purpose of attending a "Boys' camp in North Carolina" 
... for several weeks. The trouble was, after he got here it 
turned out to be a girls' camp! 

All the Cubans took well to the American way, so much in 
fact that some of the visiting students plan to return to MiUigan 
this summer, along with Professor Arjibay. 

While here last summer the people from Cuba presented an 
assembly program which was broadcast over WJHL. In this 
special radio appearance several of the islanders were interviewed, 
then they all sang songs native to Cuba, and ended with their 
national hymn.

Wherever its name has gone. Milligan College has become 
renowned for the incomparable natural beauty of her campus. 
The majestic oak, the stately maple, the pointed pine; dogwood, 
redbud. weeping willows, the Japanese Cherries, all, have long 
ago earned their place in the proud heritage of this educational 
institution. The evergreen shrubs, pink azaleas, the wild and cul- 
tivated flowers, are also a lordly part of the familiar scene. 

We are fortunate indeed in having an administration which 
takes pride in Ihe attractiveness of the campus, and provides a 
maintenance^ crew for the mowing of the grass, the grooming of 
the trees andshrubs and the care of the flowers. This week the 
workmen erected signs asking thou ghtfuln ess in connection with 
making paths across the grass. 

It is the concern of each member of the Milligan family to 
cooperate in maintaining the charm of the natural surroundings 
on the school property. Especially is it important to refrain 
from making paths across the grass, pulling or breaking flowers, 
or damaging the trees and shrubs. Let's help make Milhgan 
better by keeping her campus beautiful. Please.

Life indeed was full for these 
adventurers, never- the-less in 
1896 Dr. Hopwood became the 
outstanding figure in the Pro- 
bition movement in the state 
of Termessee. an account of 
which is given later in this dis- 

Since the educational advan- 
lure in Grundy, Virginia Dr. 
and Mrs. Hopwood have lived 
in their home on the top of a 
cedar-covered hill overlooking 
their first educational creation, 
Milligan College. "A hght set 
on a hill cannot be hid" and its 
gleams penterate not only the 
institution of learning on the 
banks of the Buffalo, but the 
wormth of the glow is felt in 
a thousand or tens of thousands 
of hearts throughout the nation. 

After climbing the mountain 
of life they have gained the 
heights and are basking in the 
sunlight of colse communion 
with God the Father. Was it 
not on the mountain top that the 
great tables of stone were given 
by God to humanity? Did not 
Jesus the Christ often choose 
the mountains for prayer? 

"Great things are done when 
men and mountains meet; 

These are not done by jostling 
in the street." 

Dr. Hopwood's great word 
was "vision." "No man has ever 
become great without an ideal, 
and the faculty which gives 
birth to ideals is vision. Vision 
is the faculty which enables 
man to realize eternity. The 
ordinary conceptions of the 
mind caimot embrace infinity 
or God. Vision alone enables 
man to transcend the fetters of 
time and space, to see the eter- 
nal through the temporal, the 
spiritual beneath the physical, 
the soul underlying all. It is 
vision which pentrates through 
all seeming, through the wild 
whirlwind and storm which are 
part of every live and everj* 
human soul, to the eternal peace 
existing at the heart of endless 
agitation.' " 

Dr. Hopwood wa.s a dreamer 
of dreams, and a see-er of 
visions. He heard voices in the 
air constantly beckoning him 
and the world on to a better 
life. He was a visionary in the 
best sense of that word. Un- 
doubtedly a more suitable wife 
could not have been found for 
Dr. Hopwood than his brilliant 
tactful, and resourceful life 
companion. The life of neither 
without the other could be com- 
plete. They supplement and 
complement each other. "With 
them there has been no differ- 
;nce between precept and ex- 
imple." The couple all through 
iieir life have possessed the 
spirit of faith and trust in God 
that makes people happy in 
life, resigned in death and ready 
to enter the presence of God. 
Dr. Ashley S. Johnson said, "Oh, 
I would like to be present when 
you and Jesus the Christ meet 
the first time."

According to popular account 
Robin Hood inhabited, with his 
followers, Sherwood Forest in 
Nottinghamshire, and the Wood- 
lands of Bamsdale, adjoining 
West Riding of Yorkshire. This 
typical hero was famed afar for 
his skill with the long bow and 
the quarter staff. He and his 
lieutenants hunted deer, levied 
toll of the rich and distributed 
it among the poor, all the time 
taking care to never harm wom-

was known for his lavish and 
capricious generosity. P i o u 5,

A commission of 22 is col- 
laborating with the directors in 
promoting the traditional exer- 
cises May 13. 

The May festival has always 
received special emphasis at 
Milligan. In 1948 history was 
made when for the first time 
in the annals of May Day at 
Milligan, the King and Queen 
who reigned were husband and 
wife. That year Mr. and Mrs. 
Duard Belmont Walker were 
the reigning royalties. 

Aacording to plans of the 
directors, the program this May 
promises one of the most elab- 
orate and colorful productions 
in the past several years. 


"Bogie," a black male Cocker 
Spaniel, was acclaimed first- 
place winner of the pet show 
held in connection with the 
second annual bench show and 
field trials of the Carter County 
Fox Hunters Association, April 
6. 7, 8. This sporting event 
took place at the Gap Creek 
School, near Elizabethton. 

The registered canine is own- 
ed by Robert L. Taylor, U. S. 
District Judge, and member of 
the board of trustees of Milli- 
gan College. 

At the Fox Hunters Associa- 
tion meeting, a horn blowing 
contest was held. Andrew Jack- 
son (Crook) Jones took second 
place in this competition. 

Anglin Field To Be 
Scene Of Farewell 

The first Junior-Senior good- 
by observance will be held on 
the W. T. Anglin Athletic Field. 
Friday, June 2. announcement 
is made by Dean Donald Sahli. 

This affair promises to become 
a traditional annual event of 
the commencement season.

Josephus Hopwood . . . 

"Portals Of 
Eternal Youth" 

Stampede Concludes 
Hopwood Chronicle 

This edition of the student 
newspaper terminates the bio- 
graphical sketch of Josephus 
Hopwood. by Lucille Lumsden, 
of the Class of 1929. This epic 
account of the "Grand Old Man 
of the Mountains—" College 
founder and president, and 
preacher of the gospel, has been 
published in the last five issues 
of The Stampede. This sixth in- 
stallment brings to a close the 
life narration of Milligan's 
founder, written by the student 
of 1929 and presented in par- 
tial fulfillment of the require- 
ments for a bachelor of arts de- 
gree in English. 

After the launching of the 
Grundy school. Dr. and Mrs. 
Hopwood returned to their home 
on the hill overlooking the cam- 
pus of MiUigan CoUege. One 
climbing this hill, long the wind- 
ing path which js called" the 
path to peace,'' may find at the 
top this' grand old couple, liv- 
ing in joy and peace and close 
companionship with the One in 
whose service they have spent 
their lives. Every Sunday morn- 
ing finds them in the little his- 
toric church of Milligan, wor- 
shipping and partaking of the 
Lord's supper. 

Their little brick home, a gift 
of love and appreciation of the 
old. students of Milligan College, 
is a place in which may always 
be found, comfort, sympathy, 
inspiration— love. As a man 
who had run in for a short visit 
after the strain of his life in 
business, said "I feel like a good 
Moslem who has just visited 
Mecca." God has spared the 
lives of these two people for 
many years, and each year has 
been an added blessing to the 
world. This month, April. Dr. 
Hopwood clebrated his 86lh 
birthday, and as Mrs. Hopwood 
remarked, with tears in her 
eyes, "He has almost reached the 
spring of eternal youth." 

This dissertation portrays in 
no adequate manner the life and 
work of Dr. and Mrs. Hopwood, 
but it is out of personal appre- 
ciation and admiration, consci- 
ous of my incapability, that I 
write. But anyone who ha.s ever 
known the Hopwoods will agree, 
that just as they are living now 
on the summit of this cedar- 
covered hill in view as I write, 
so have they always lived at 
a spiritual height above the 
common folk, and yet among 
them. If man reflects God, our 
conception of Him is materially 
vitahzed by Dr. Hopwood and 
his wife. 

"Oh. we have had a royal 
life," said Mrs. Hopwood re- 
cently, and this life has added 
a touch of rayally to countless 

"Even as a broken mirrior, 
which the glass 

In every fragment multiplies; 
and makes 

A thousand images of one that 

The same, and still the more, 
the more it breaks." 


For more than ten years, natives of Puerto Rico have been 
enrolled at MiHigan. During this time fourteen girls and one 
boy have come here to study. Of this number four girls have 
married American boys, whom they met while at Milligan. and 
some have returned to teach in their native island. With the 
exception of one, all these students have been from San Sebastian.

The common cold and sore 
throat took first place on the 
roster of ailments at Milligan 
this year, reports school Nurse 
Shirley Long. The statistics on 
the infirmary books show that 
during both semesters a total of 
306 patients came seeking 
treatment for sniffles and kin- 
dred maladies — almost half the 
summed-up number of physical 
complaints, which mounted to 
over 700. 

Close to the top of the list 
were 109 cases of nausea and 
diarrhea, and third down was 
influenza, with 81 victims turn- 
ing up for remedial measures. 

Most disorders were of a 
negligible nature. However, a 
few took on more serious pro- 
portions in the reported cases 
of three major operations, per- 
formed in local hospitals. Three 
more operations were marked 
up as minor. 

Other Ailments Catalogued 

Mrs. Long chalks up eighteen 
other bodily disturbances, with 

the number of patients seeking 
medical care for each: Oral ul- 
cers, 26; athlete's foot, 19; ner- 
vous disorders, 17; minor burns, 
16; blisters and minor cuts. 14; 
sprained joints, 14; infectious

Health Pecautions 
Urged In Control, 
Treatment Of Polb 

The National Foundation for 
Infantile Paralysis, noting that 
poho is striking an increasing 
number of teen-agers and young 
adults, has issued a message 
callmg for observance of simple 
health precautions by college 
students during the hot polio 
months just ahead. 

Dr. Hart E. Van Riper, med- 
ical director of the National 
Foundation, Baid that a spot 
survey of the 1948 polio epi- 
demic showed 25 percent of the 
patients were over 15 years of 
age. Of this total, 18 percent 
were over 20 years. Local chap- 
ters have assisted hundreds of 
college-age polio patients dur- 
ing the past year. 

•'Only 3.7 percent of the pa- 
tients were over 15 years of age 
in 1916, he said. "This figure 
rose to seven percent in 1931 
and 15 percent in 1944." 

The National Foundation list- 
ed five basic precautions for 
the May-to-Deceraber epidemic 
danger season. Dr. Van Riper 
said they are based on the 
March of Dimes agency's exten- 
sive research program and the 
findings of health departments, 
physicians and hospital officials. 
These are the recommended 

Keep children with their own 
friends — Keep them away from 
persons they have not been 
with right along, especially in 
close, daily living. Dr. Van 
Riper said many persons have 
a polio infection without show- 
ing any signs of sickness, yet 
may pass it on to others. 

Try not to get over-tired— if 
you have the virus in your sys- 
tem, he said, becoming exhaust- 
ed may bring on serious polio 

Keep from getting chilled- 
Chilling also can lessen your 
protection, he said; don't bathe 
or swim too long in cold water 
and take off wet clothing quick- 

Keep Clean — Wash hands 
carefully before eating and al- 
ways after Using the toilet 

Hands may carry the polio in- 
fection into the body through 
the mouth. Also keep food 
clean and covered. 

Watch for early signs of 
sickness. Some of the symptoms 
listed are headache, sore throat. 
upset stomach, sore muscles, 
stiff neck and back, fever and 
trouble in swallowing or breath- 
ing. Persons coming down with 
polio may feel nervous, cross or 

In the event polio does strike, 
these steps were reconamended: 

Call your doctor at once and, 
until he comes, keep the patient 
quiet, in bed and away from 

If the diagnosis is polio, Dr. 
Van Riper advised, the local 
chapter of the National Foun- 
dation for Infantile Paralysis 
should be called. 

"Polio is a very expensive 
disease to treat," he said, "but 
r.o patient need go without 
care for lack of funds. You pay 
what you can afford and your 
chapter, supported by the an- 
nual March of Dimes, will pay 
the cost ol care you cannot 

He warned that there is no 
"quick cure" for polio and no 
way as yet to prevent it 

■'With good care, most people 
cct well, although some need 
treatment for a long time." he 
added. "More than half, the per- 
'ns who get the disease recover 

.hout any criFfplirg."

First Epistle From Hampsters to Homo Sapiens 


Unskilled in the art of \vTiting. I. "Pop" Hamster squeek 
greetings in behalf of "Nom" Hamster and our one surviving 
offspring, "Cannibal," to you, our faithful guardians and fond 

We Hampsters have but recently entered these United States 
having been discovered in Syria and brought to this country 
by scientists who named us Cricelus Auratus Waterhouse. They 
say we belong to the rat and rodent family, a fact not to our 
liking for though our anatomy might resemble theirs, our per- 
sonalities are in sharp contrast. 

We are not "sneeky" but are extremely sociable. Our table 
manners are beyond reproach. We have no equals in the field 
of sanitation for we wash many times a day and keep our nests 
free from filth. Like many of our human friends, we are noc- 
turnal — meaning that we sleep all day and stay awake all night. 
We are a worry-free animal. If we aren't fed. we feast upon 
our relatives. That's how Cannibal acquired his name. He ate 
his sister. 

Did you ask why we are here? We are proud to say that 
our lives have been dedicated to science. Through us many 
new and practical facts about life have been and will continue 
to be learned. Thus far. two of the "kids" have paid the supreme 
sacrifice. When our time comes, our dying words will be. "Wc 
regret that we have but one life to give to science." 

Come see us. won't you? Our home is at room 114 Admin- 
istration Building. 


Out of the Files . . . 

Looking through old records 
of 1887, we came across this note 
concerning sports at Milligan. 
It reminds one of the intramural 
Softball league the past semes- 
ter (Lovelace's Lovers, Crack- 
pots. Rebels. Bombers, etc). 
'The Students' attention was 
given to local match games, 
such as Prohibitionists against 
Democrats. Fat Men against 
Lean Men. or One Side of 
Creed against The Other Side 
of Creed." 

Hidden Treasure 

Turning to more serious vein, 
this obser\'ation furnishes an 
appropriate ending for this 
column in tlie final edition of 
the Stampede for 1949-50. Down 
at the age-worn postoffice. 
where we linger to receive that 
communication from the out- 
side world, one can find much 
of interest on the cluttered wall 
above the shelf with the ink- 
well. Nestled in obscurity 
beneath the "Wanted for bur- 
galry. fraud, murder" bulletins, 
the ancient calendars and mis- 
cellaneous advertisements, is a 
gem of verse by an unknown 

poet For all who chance to 
find the yellowed clipping, here 
is a sound philosophy of life: 
Give me clean hands, clean 

words and clean thoughts 
Help me to stand for the hard 

right against the easy wrong; 
Save me from habits that 

Teach me to work as hard and 

play as fair as in Thy sigh 

All the world saw. 
Forgive mc when I am unkind, 

and help me to forgive those 

Who are unkind to me. 
Keep me ready to help others at 

some cost to m>-solf.

'7Ue ^iMt *1Uaii,hiffUU*t<f, MILLIGAN ATHLETICS 

It was a lovely Thanksgiving celebra- 
tion that day at Plymouth in the fall of 1621. 
The Pilgrims, after fasting, prayer and a 
farewell feast, left the city of Leyden, Eng- 
land, and sailed for a new home. A year 
had passed in this new world and they were 
reaping a bountiful harvest. The woods 
were decked in resplendent colors and game 
was in abundance. It was truly time for 
Thanksgiving. Thus a royal feast was pre- 
pared on the first aimiversary of their land- 
ing. I have always felt that when these 
autumn days were over and the winter skies 
hung low, these Pilgrims were richer, hap- 
pier, and had a deeper sense of security be- 
cause they had taken time to give thanks. 

It ii only to those who have willingness lo 
receive that anything can be given. 

There is something heartfelt and ro- 
mantic about this first Thanksgiving Day 
and I never want to forget it. They were 
dreamers, these Pilgrim fathers who had 
come so far to find religious and economic 
freedom. That is what makes the story so 
reverential. They dreamed into existence a 
new nation "conceived in liberty and dedi- 
cated to the proposition that sdl men are 
created equal." It is good that we perpetu- 
ate their ideals . . . and dream. 

We are thankiul that we have learned to 
turn our defeats and disappointments into good 

With the State game, the Milligan Buf- 
faloes closed a most successful season. True, 
the Buffs did not win all their games but 
considering the enrollment of the various 
colleges on the Buffaloes schedule, Milligan 
had an outstanding team. It is doubtful if 
any college our size could beat us. The line 
stood well against even the larger teams 
and the offense kept Mihgan in the game 
until the very end. As for basketball, the 
Buffs have always made an excellent record 
and from all indications, this year will 
measure as high as the teams of other 
years. All in all, this year's athletic pro- 
gram is of a high caliber. 


1. A good American cooperates for the wel- 
fare of the whole group. 

2. A good American practices fundamental 
equality and human brotherhood. 

3. A good American upholds democracy. 

4. A good American believes in freedom of 
worship, freedom of thought, freedom of 
press, freedom of assembly and freedom 
of speech. 

5. A good American accepts responsibility. 

—Goodwin Walion. 

Figures released from the Veteran's Ad- 
ministration show that a majority of the 
nation's 15,300,000 World War II veterans 
have benefited by the G.I. Bill. 

Today is a lovely autumn day. The trees have on their 
coats of soft tans and browns and reds. And in the spirit of 
these autumn days, I must record two enchanting poems by 
Mrs. Alva Ross Brown, our English Professor. 


All suddenly the lovely summer ends, 

And like a queen grown weary of her reign. 
Now swiftly from her golden throne descends, 

Nor cares to mount its jewelled steps again. 
A late rose blooms beside the grassy walk, 

The air at noon is clear as crystal glass 
A drowsy bee falls from an aster stalk 

And crickets murmur softly in the grass. 

O, heart hold fast this beauty you have known 

For summer wealth is made of transient things; 

Today, a scented blossom, bright, full blown, 
Tomorrow, flown as birds on silent wings, 

And soon this wooded fern — sweet path you know 
Will slip beneath a weight of drifted snow. 


Softly now the autumn rain 

Falls thru fading leaves 
For summer's sudden passing 

The lonely garden grieves. 

On withered stalk of poppy 

And aster falls the rain; 
Only the broken stem can tell 

Of summer's lonely train. 

Upon the walk the maple leaves 
Lie wet and pumpkin bright; 

A flash of blue and orchard trees 
Marks the jay's bold flight. 

Against the misty, troubled sky, 

Fly the dusky crows; 
The cornfield tents to which they wing 

Will soon be roofed by snows. 

Oh, autumn, soon the gentle snow 
In sleep will fold your leaves 

And thus will peace as softly come 
To heal the heart that grieves. 


Only four per cent of all verterans who 
have been in training — or around 300,000 — 
have exhausted their entitlement to further 
G.L Bill training. 

All together, the veterans spent a total 
of 95.000,000 months in classroom, at the 
work bench and on the farm, or an average 
of about 15 months of training per veteran. 

Enrollment Figures 

statistics released by the col- 
lege Registrar show Milligan 
has students enrolled this se- 
mester from sixteen different 
states. Tennessee comes first 
with 91 students and Virginia 
second with 52 enrolled. Total 
for each state as follows: Ten- 
nessee 91; Virginia 52; Ohio 16; 
Pennsylvania 15; Indiana 12; Il- 
linois 12; Kentucky 6; West Vir- 
ginia 5; Michigan 5; New York 
4; North Carolina 4; Florida 3; 
Wisconsin 1; Mississippi 1; Min- 
nesota 1; Puerto Rico 4. 

Romance is on the campus 
again. The most recent engage- 
ment to be announced is that 
of Charlotte Garshaw and 
Frank Kelly. Charlotte and 
Frank plan to be married next 
August in Huntington, W. Va. 

Congratulations go to Grant 
Layman, ministerial student 
from Hillsboro. Ohio, who re- 
cently preached his first ser- 
mon at the Union Christian 
Church. From all reports Grant 
delivered an inspiring message.

Draft Regulations 
Are Clarified 

How does the drafl affect you, 
Mr. College Student? This is 
partially answered in bulletins 
issued by Lewis B, Hershey, 
national director of Selective 

The following is contained in 
material sent from his office: 
"Local boards may consider the 
following conditions when all 
three exist in the case of any 
registrant as warranting consid- 
eration for occupational defer- 

1. The registrant has com- 
pleted at least one academic 
year of a full-time course of in- 
struction at a college, univers- 
ity, or similar institution of 

2. The college or university at 
which the registrant last com- 
pleted an academic year of a 
luU-time course of instruction 
certifies that the registrant's 
scholastic standing placed him 
among the upper half of his 

3. The local board is satisfied 
by the record of the registrant's 
actions in making normally re- 
quired arrangements that he 
had fully intended prior to Aug- 
ust 1, 1950, to enroll in a full- 
time course of instruction at a 
college, university, or similar 
institution of learning for the 
academic year ending in the 
Spring of 1951. 

"In the case of a registrant 
meeting the above conditions to 
whom an order to report for 
induction has been. issued, the 
local board is hereby authorized 
by the Director ... to reopen 
the case for reconsideration." 

The law requires all men to 
register with the Selective Ser- 
vice System within five days 
after their 18th birthday. The 
student, on becoming 18, should 
register with his local board, 
that being the one nearest his 
home. The student away from 
his home may register with the 
board nearest the school and 
ask that his registration be for- 
warded to his home board. 

Anyone who has received a 
classification card has a Selec- 
tive Service number on it. This 
number should always be used 
in any correspondence with the 

A student should at all times 
keep his home board informed 
of any change of address. Any 
notice mailed out from the 
board is regarded as active no 
matter whether the registrant 
has received it or not. He should 
also notify the board if he mar- 
ries after the registration date, 
as his classification would be 

Anyone receiving a notice of 
induction from his Selective 
Service Board may report at 
once to another board and ask 
for a transfer from the board

Persons bom before August

keep their local board informed 
of change of address. Their 
records have been stored and

Ministerial Boys Busy 

Several MiUigan ministerial 
students are fortunate enough 
to have preaching points while 
doing their college work. Joe 
Sutherland can be heard any 
Sunday at the Central Christian 
Church, Jonesboro; Marshall 
Leggett is preaching every 
Lord's Day at the Union Church 
of Christ; Mel Knapp is minis- 
ter for the Wood-Howell Chris- 
tian Church in Virginia; Bob 
Piatt is preaching at First Chris- 
tian, Jonesboro; Albert Zim- 
merman is regular at Cumber- 
land, Kentucky. 

Jerry Holmquist is now Youth 
Director of First Church, Bris- 
tol and Tom Archibald is music 
director for Fourth Church, 
Johnson City. 

MiUigan Students 
Practice Teaching 

Twenty-eight MiUigan stu- 
dents are engaged in practice- 
teaching at Happy VaUey this 
semester, in order to meet the 
requirements to obtain a teach- 
ing certificate. These students 
receive six hours' credit for the 
semester's work, which includes 
taking a one hour course in di- 
rected teaching here at MiUigan 
plus the five hours per week of 
teaching at Happy VaUey. . 

Before teaching the class, the 
student is required to draw up 
a full outline of the subject to 
be taught. In addition, he is to 
submit a list of the objectives 
he wishes to be attained during 
the semester. The student teach- 
er is also to take the place of 
the regular teaching in the as- 
signment of homework, the 
making, administration, and 
grading of tests. 

Upon his arrival at the class- 
room, the student teacher first 
observes the classroom proce- 
dure as conducted by tlie regu- 
lar teacher. Then, with the 
teacher remaining in the room 
and noting criticisms to bo told 
the practice teacher at a later 
time, the student conducts the

ing are as follows: Physical Ed-

Whenever a preacher pro- 
poses to the future Mrs. Preach- 
er I wonder if he gets up as 
much steam as he does when 
he is in the pulpit preaching. 
Now there's Marshall Leggett 
for example. II MarshaU were 
proposing to a girl I imagine he 
would go about it something 
like this: 

"Well, old girl, I'm gonna give 
you the first chance to make 
yourself Mrs. MarshaU Q. Leg- 
gett. I'm the very best to be 
had in the matcrimonial line, 
and I won't take "No" for an 
answer. Plenty of women are 
crazy to get a chance at me; 
since you're a very good friend 
of mine, though. I'm making you 
the first offer. And let me teU 
you right now you'U be making 
the biggest mistake of your life 
if you don't grab me now while 
you can get me. . . . WeU,

A Chinese man had a tooth- 
ache and phoned a dentist for 
an appointment. 

"Two-thirty all right?" asked 
the dentist, 

"Yes." replied the Chinese, 
"Tooth hurtee. aU right. What 
time I come?" 

MiUigan On The Air 

Personnel of MiUigan CoUege 
are engaged in the preparation 
and presentation of two radio 
programs in the name of the 
school One of the programs, 
"MiUigan Speaks," is again be- 
ing broadcast after a two-year 
interruption- Being broadcast 
over WETB, Johnson City, on 
each Monday at 1:00 PM, and 
opening to the strains of our 
Alma Mater, "MiUigan Speaks" 
is not a promotional project for 
the school, but a project to 
bring educational and cultural 
programs to the peoples of the 
surrounding communities. Thus 
far, the programs have included 
a message by Dr. Walker, music 
by Miss White, original poems 
by Mrs. Brown. 

The second MiUigan program 
is presented by the Ministerial 
association over WBEJ, Eliza- 
bethton, at 6:45 PM each Wed- 
nesday. The time for the pro- 
gram was secured by Mr. Coch- 
rane, an alumnus of MiUigan 
CoUege, and now an official of 
station WBEJ. The aim of the 
program is to "present the gos- 
pel in song and sermon." The 
first program was on the theme 
of love, and consisted of a talk 
by Prof. Edwards explaining the 
purpose of the program, and 
music by the MiUigan CoUege 
Quartet and by Miss White. The 
program on Nov. 22 wiU feature 
a talk by Prof. Rhea.

Christmas Vacation 
Begins December 16 

Milligan College will termi- 
nate its class schedule at noon 
on Saturday, December 16 as 
the Christmas vacation official- 
ly begins. Already joyous over 
the previously announced three 
day addition to the holiday sea- 
son, the yuletide spirit continues 
to mount as the students par- 
ticipate in the many campus ac- 
tivities of the Pre-Christmas 

The natural destiiiation for 
the majority of students will be 
their respective homes situated 
in some fifteen states. However, 
some students are planning to 
spend all or part of their vaca- 
tion elsewhere, and the wanner 
clime, particularly that of Flor- 
ida seems to be favored in these 
vacation plans. 

Classes are scheduled to re- 
sume at 8 a.m. Wednesday. Jan- 
uary 3. 1951. Dean Sahli also 
announced that any class ab- 
sence intmediately preceding or 
following the Christmas recess 
would constitute a triple cut.

Once, on a clear, starry night long ago, 
a child was born. A very special child he 
was, for He was the Son of God, the Saviour 
of mankind, and untold millions have paid 
Him homage as such. However, our tradi- 
tional Christmas Day, supposedly the an- 
niversary of His'birth, has lost all semblance 
of its true meaning and significance. Once 
it was the day set aside to commemorate 
^he birth of a King and men realized its 
implications. It was a day of worship and 
a day of reverence; it was as well a day of 
joy and rejoicing. Men and women, inspir- 
ed by the unselfish love of Christ, began 
to give each other appropriate gifts, to 
share their blessings with their loved ones 
and to help the unfortunate. 

Today the spirit of Christmas has been 
debased; it has been saturated with com- 
mercialism. In this age even the tempo of 
Christmas has been changed. Individual 
sales quotas have been raised; radios, mag- 
azines and newspapers flaunt the latest in 
sales propaganda before our eyes; every de- 
partment store and street-corner has its 
bewhiskered St. Nicholas, supposedly the 
embodiment of the spirit of Christmas. 
Scarcely has our Thanksgiving dinner been 
digester, before our ears detect a hearty 
laugh, the sound of prancing feet and the 
jingle of sleigh-bells. All of which is by 
way of informing us of the fact that, once 
again, the campaign to surround the picture 
of the Babe in a manger with the almighty 
dollar-sign, to fleece a gullible public of 
its savings, is off to an early start. Behind 
it all we see that the emphasis is in the 
wrong place. Our twentieth-century acts of 
giving have come to be the means whereby 
we enter into the spirit of Christmas, in- 
stead of our gratitude to God for His un- 
speakable gift and our love for our fellow- 
men being the basic drive which urges us 

This is a good slogan for a service station 
operator, but it doesn't sound good to a 
motorist. During the recent icy weather 
there was nearly two hundred deaths re- 
ported. Undoubtedly some of these deaths 
could have been prevented, and undoubted- 
ly more deaths were avoided when other 
people were extremely cautious on the road. 
We are prone to become careless in our 
driving after a few thousand miles without 
an accident. But, if we remember that a 
couple of seconds of inattention can mean 
a couple months of doctor bills or maybe 
eternity for someone, then driving safely 
will mean something to us besides being 
another slogan. If you think life is worth 
living, "prove it, by careful driving. Driv- 
ing is fun especially when we are heading 
for home and a big CHRISTMAS with our 
loved ones. The folks are expecting us — 
will we get there — in one piece, that is? 

Some folks say that winter is a desolate time, 

And dread to see it come; 

But with all my imagination, 

I oannot find desolation 

In the sparkling, new-fallen snow. 

True, the trees are bare; 

True, the grass is gone; 

But still wild life lingers on. 

There jumps a hare; 

There chirps a jay; 

There runs a squirrel, up and away. 

The trees are not dead — only sleeping; 

But the pine still remains awake 

And )vaits only for someone to take its beauty into 

their memory. 
The summer time is truly luscious; 
But remember not to forget 
That winter is part of God's world also — 
Something from which we can benefit.

To the students who participated in Mil- 
ligan-State Week and survived, we com- 
mend your self control in not carrying a 
good thing too far. We realize that the 
urge is sometimes strong to make the best 
of the opportunities that come our way in 
giving our State friends souvenirs by which 
to remember us. But in keeping our heads 
(and hair), we prove ourselves to be college 
students and not overgrown teenagers. The 
administration should be proud of the stu- 
dents who have shown a desire to keep the 
best of relations between the BUFFS and 
the BUGS in preference to a few days of 
hilarious vandalism. Let's keep up this type 
of good will, and State Week will always 
be an -appetizer before the big game with 
our friendly rival E.T.S.C. Thanks again 
for your cooperation. 


Most of the men in Pardee Hall can re- 
member the condition of the dorm last year 
and appreciate the many improvements that 
have been made since that time. They must 
realize how much money and labor was put 
into the scraping and sanding of the floors. 
painting the walls and making other addi- 
tions to renovate the living quarters. It is 
the responsibility of every man living in 
Pardee to keep the building in such condi- 
tion. Already this semester, the dorm shows 
lack of attention. There seems to be much 
negligence on the part of those responsible 
for the care of the building along with those 
hving in the dorm. Perhaps, the Pardee 
Hall Council should investigate and take 
the necessary steps to correct this matter. 
Let's keep Pardee clean!

The Ideal Teacher 

A poll taken recently among 
the student body to determine 
what characteristics they con- 
sidered to be most desirable in 
a teacher revealed the follow- 
ing information: 

Should have a thorough 
knowledge of the subject 

taught 51% 

Should have teaching abil- 
ity __ ,..- „ 48% 

Should exhibit fairness in 

all matters „_ _ „..41% 

Should have a sincere inter- 
est in the teaching profes- 
sion 40% 

Should have interest in, and 
understanding of young 

people - „. 40% 

Should be a Christian -25% 

Should have a pleasant per- 
sonality 24% 

Should be a firm disciplin- 
arian 19% 

Should possess infinite pa- 
tience 17% 

Should have a sense of 

humor 16% 

The following theme, repre- 
sentative of the many, that were 
submitted in the poll and from 
which the above tabulations 
were compiled was written by 
Betty Tunnell, a freshman stu- 

The ideal teacher is fully 
qualified to instruct others in 
his particular field of study. He 
must not only know his subject 
thoroughly, but he must also 
have acquired a manner of 
teaching that will enable his 
students to grasp the instructive 
ideas which he has to offer 

Patience and consideration 
are requisite qualifications sy- 
nonj»mous with the ideal teach- 
er. Ho must be masterful in tact 
and sane judgment. He should 
cultivate a warm feeling of in- 
dividual importance which 
should exist between him and 
his students- His classes should 
be characterized by a friendly 

The ideal teacher should be 
wholeheartedly sold on his pro- 
fession. He must have a real 
desire to help others grow in 
knowledge. He presents the 
facts, expresses his opinions and 
beliefs, but does not insist or 
demand that his opinions be ac- 
cepted by his hearers. He should 
encourage the student to con- 
sider facts and others' opinions, 
but he should also encourage 
the individual to think for him- 
self and arrive at his own con-

Christmas comes this year of 
1950 in a world greatly disturb- 
ed by the possibilities of an 
outright conflict engaging the 
whole earth. It seems to us that 
no other time has been more 
dangerously threatened from 
the enemies of the Lord of the 
day whose birth hallowed this 
season for so much of the 
world's people. 

Yet it may rightly be said 
that in the time of His coming 
the evil which threatened to 
destroy God's earth was no less 
blatant, no less powerful, than 
it is in this day. In that time 
the evil was taken for granted. 
Due to the life of Jesus of Naz- 
areth today the evil is taken as 
a danger to be averted, a con- 
quest to be defeated, an enemy 
to be destroyed. This change in 
the world's -thinking is partly 
the cause of gur^' more acute 
apprehension, ih a day of dis- 

As you go to your various 
homes for vacation time, you 
will carry with you not only the 
sense of impending danger but 
also the sense of internal peace. 
You have had peace on the 
campus of MiUigan this semes- 
ter. You have done well. We 
have had few occasions to sug- 
gest to you the desirability of 
alternative courses to the ones 
which you have chosen for 
yourselves. We have believed 
that if you as students have the 
right of choice that you will 
make the right choice. In this 
we have been largely vindi- 
cated. Our thanks to you and 
our hope that the peace which 
you have made upon this cam- 
pus may continue in the un- 
folding months to come. 

You have seen on the campus 
at Milligan a subtle "differ- 
ence" in life which we hope you 
will carry with you throughout 
all your days. It is possible to 
be a Christian in these times. It 
is possible to deal honestly, up- 
rightly, fairly, benevolently 
with all men in all occupations 
you may choose. It is possible 
to do so in your college work. 
You have seen how this differ- 
ence enriches your own lives 

and the lives with whom you 
deal. You have seen it in class- 
rooms and in the varied curricu- 
lar activities of this college 
campus. It is our desire that this 
difference may become increas- 
ingly clear to you. and that you 
will find the greatest sources of 
your satisfaction rooted in this 
Christian difference which 
Christ has made available to 
every person. 

When you reach your homes 
I cherfth the hope that you will 
find it possible to express yoxir 
gratitude to Our Heavenly 
Father in the work at services 
in your respfective churches. I 
hope you will find it possible to 
tell some boy or girl of your ac- 
quaintance of the difference 
which Milligan has meant to 
you. Talk to your minister about 
this same creative education 
which you are absorbing here 
at this school. Tell them if you 
will of the threat to education 
which mobilization of young 
men brings to the college cam- 
pus. Ask them to stand reso- 
lutely as friends by the side of 
the Christian college that the 
light which our Saviour brought 
into the world may not be dim- 
med in this time of wars and 
threats of wars. Carry a gift to 
your father and mother and 
your brothers and sisters in 
making your life a benediction 
to them. Enjoy their company 
and be sure that they enjoy 
yours. Above aU let the joyous 
radiance of the Christmas Sea- 
son be present in your minds 
and hearts and wills and you 
will increase the sense of peace 
that is yours through that which 
you have found here at Milligan. 
The days will pass quickly 
-and you shall be back on cam- 
pus. We shall be dehghted to 
see you and when you come 
back filled with the joys of a 
normal Christmas Season we 
hope that the vacation will have 
profited you to the point that 
you may pursue with even more 
zest the studies and the ac- 
quaintances which have brought 
enrichment to your personaUty. 
Mrs. Walker joins me in wish- 
ing you each and every one the 
happiest Christmas of your lives.

What a tragedy that MiUigan's athletic trophies are 
being treated with such alarming indifference and negli- 
gence! Instead of being displayed in a glass show case' 
they are now residing in the dust and dirt of the old store 
room on the third floor of the administration building. 

Every school should be proud of her symbols of past 
prowess in the sports world; one wonders about MiUigan's 
achievements. The "Buffaloes" have won their share of 
awards in building an athletic reputation, but it certainly 
is not evident, for the trophies are placed where no one 
ever sees them. School spirit and pride is instilled in the 
student body when the school's accomplishments are held 
up before the college. 

Before the trophies collected dust in the store room, 
they were situate;! on top of a cabinet in the dean's office, 
certainly hot a-fitting tribute to MiUigan's athletic teams 
of the past. 

Now the question arises, "What can be done?" A glass 
case can be purchased or an enclosed shelf can be construct- 
ed and situated in some prominent place. This would be an 
excellent contribution for an enterprising club or class as 
their project. Such an organization can point the way to a 
better Milligan College!

Five Milligan College Buffaloes won berths on the all-

MiUigan's Buffaloes broke into

MiUigan's record after a dismal 

The opening contests of the

at a disadvantage, due to the 
fact that five of the Buffs' seven

fore have been devoting time 
entirely to basketball since 
school commenced. The Herd 
started practice at the close of 
the pigskin season and has not 
yet gained the smoothness and 
accuracy that is acquired by 
practice and competition. 

In their debut, the Herd lost 
a free-scoring game to Berea 
College, of Berea. Kentucky. 
The visitors jumped ahead at 
the outset and never relinquish- 
ed their lead, nailing down an 
easy 101-67 triumph. Two of 
Milligan's starters had been 
marooned up North by the snow 
storm during the Thanksgiving 
vacation and did not dress for 
the contest. 

The game was a rough affair, 
with 73 fouls being called. Berea 
led 44-26 at intermission and 
poured points through Milligan's 
defense lihe water through a 
sieve up to the final gun. Don 
Brooks copped scoring honors 
for the night with 16 points. 

Sid Hathaway bagged 15 
counters, followed by "Mad 
Mack" Wolfe with 14. 

Facing the Appalachian State 
Mountaineers, semi -finalist in 
the N. A. I. B, tournament last 
year, the Milligan Buffaloes 
dropped their second tilt by a 
79-64 count 

Milligan played a much better 
brand of ball than in the open- 
er, as evidenced by a 36-34 lead 
ot half-time. The Buffs com- 
manded a 43-42 margin with 12 

minutes to go. but ran out of 
steam. The thrilling encounter 
was deadlocked eight times, but 
the visitors pulled away in the 
last canto. 

Big Joe Hunt, stellar Moun- 
taineer pivot man, played out- 
standing ball, rattling the hoops 
for 20 points. Sid Hathaway 
again topped the Buff cagers 
with a 17 point total, while Sam 
Pridon racked up 14 points and 
played a bang-up game under 
the back boards. Frank Dumis- 
inecz copped 12 counters and 
stood out defensively as a ball' 
hawk. "Mad Mack" Wolfe play- 
ed another outstanding ball 
game with his set shots and 
floor work. 

Traveling to Bristol, the 
Buffs dropped another game, 
this time by a close margin. 57- 
56, to the King College quint. 
The Tornado sewed up the de- 
cision with a foul shot in the 
minute and a half of play and 
then "froze" the ball the re- 
maining seconds. 

The contest was a thriller all 
the way. with the lead changing 
hands time and again. King 
stretched a first half margin to 
30-23, but the Herd stormed 
back to grab the lead at the out- 
set of the second half. After 
minutes, the Buffs led 35-24. 
and padded this margin to a 
50-45 edge, Here disaster befell 
Milhgan, with foul shots play- 
ing an important role. 

King knotted the count at 
52-52. with two charity tosses, 
as the clock showed three min- 
utes to play. With two more 
foul shots, the Tornado took a 
54-52 lead. Milligan surged 
back to deadlock the count at 
54-54, and then take a 56-53 
edge, but here King took the 
lead in the nerve - wrecking 
drama as Moore, scrappy little 
guard, drove in for a crip shot 
to tic it up. Then, at this tense 
moment. Byrd. the outstanding 
man on the court, swished the 
net with the foul which spelled

Scoring 30 points on 9 field

turned in an excellent game be-

Milligan Debaters In 
Contest At Sewanee 

Milljgan College was repre- 
sented by one team in the Se- 
wanee pre-season debate tour- 
nament held on the beautiful 
campus of the University of The 
South on January 5 and 6. These 
were the first intercollege de- 
bates engaged in by a Milligan 
team in many years. These 
were also the first interschool 
debates that either member of 
the Milligan team had ever par- 
ticipated in, or, on the psirt of 
one of the debaters, the first de- 
bates he had ever seen. Despite 
these handicaps, the Milligan 
team, composed of Bob White 
and Paul Conkin, won two of 
their six debates over a Van- 
derbilt and a Sewanee team- 
Dean D. G. Sahli coached the 
team at the tournament and 
acted as a judge for several of 
the debates between other 
schools. Everette Smock made

We would like to express appreciation on 
behalf of the student body to President Wal- 
ker for his frankness in presenting to us in 
Chapel last December, facts regarding the 
condition of our college. Rimiors aren't 
very reliable things on which to form opin- 
ions or to provide one with an accurate ac- 
count of the whole story. And neither is 
one's imagination a good source for drawing 
upon w.hen presenting rumors to others in 
the form of the straight dope in respect to 
our future here at Milligan. 

The ideas and attitudes of many students 
have been changed since there is no doubt 
about what our college is doing and trying 
to do for us. We now have a better under- 
standing "of what is to be done to improve 
our oppertunities, and what we can also do 
to give our support in removing the limi- 
tations under which we operate. There have 
already been results of our President's 
straightforward talk. Supplied with the 
facts of the matter some students have not 
only gone ahead on their own to enlist as- 
sistance but have personally given what lit- 
tle they could. With a leader such as Dr. 
Walker and with such responsive students 
as Milligan College has now, the future of 
our alma mater is assured. We're not only 
pulling for old Milligan but we're pushing 

Most of us today are concerned about the 
draft situation (even the girls), and we are 
wondering what plans to make for the im- 
mediate future. Since we cannot be sdre of 
our position in such matters; probably the 
best move for us to make would be not to — 
until the picture clears up a little. This 
veteran during the last war faced the same 
condition as you face today — a dark future 
— uncertainty about what plans to make — 
general unrest among the people. There 
were many who acted first and thought aft- 
erward and vice versa; then there were 
those who did what I did — nothing. Not ex- 
actly nothing — just kept on working and 
waiting until the confusion died down — by 
then there was some semblance of order 
and organization. The government had its 
plans and decisions made and published for 
the benefit of all concerned, which gave us 
all 3.11 opportunity to know where we stood 
in relation to the future. It was possible to 
approximately figure out what was coming 
and what to do in order to be ready for the 
draft. Besides, the longer we wait before 
we act the more time we will have to think 
over all the angles, and the wiser we will 
be when we make our decision. It's our 
choice to make — whether we learn by our 
own experience or by the experience of 
others that is for us to determine. Remem- 
ber the old maxim or adage or axiom or 
proverb or gizmo — anyhow, remember this: 
"Haste makes waste."

mount here. No one will disagree with us 
that the Choir and the Gospel Teams are 
doing a commendable job and that they 
should, by all means, continue to go out, 
but our prospective students should also 
know what our complete program is. 

Milligan College is composed of more 
than two fields of learning, for instance, 
we have here the following subjects: Botany 
— Biology — Chemistry — Physics — 
Mathematics (almost all brands) — Psychol- 
ogy {from Abnormal to Child) — Language 
(except Russian, Chinese, and a couple 

Already we have those among us who 
are doing something about this condition. 
The Pre-Med Club has launched a cam- 
paign to financially assist the Science Dept. 


Although the approach of sprmg and the 
tennis season is several months hence, now 
is the time to consider the deterioration of 
the tennis facilities, and the improvements 
which might be effected. 

It is evident that both the tennis courts 
and the nets are in a state of bad repair and 
nejglect. The courts are 15 years old; during 
this period only one has been even partial- 
ly repaired. The nets were purchased five 
years ago; they are now rotting and have 
developed many breaks and holes. Such is 
the condition of the tennis equipment. 

We must realize that tennis involves two 
groups of students: those who compose the 
team which competes intercollegiately, and 
also those who play for recreation and ex- 
ercise. Because of these two groups, the 
tennis equipment is possibly the most util- 
ized recreationaJ facility on the campus. 
Therefore, it is important that improve- 
ments be made. 

Of course, we realize that the purchase of 
new courts ($800 each) or the resurfacmg 
of the old ones ($300 each) is beyond the 
financial reach of most any alumnus, club, 
or class. However, the acquisition of new 
nets would be a vital assist. Four of the 
first five netmen of last year are returning 
this spring, which is a fine nucleus, certain- 
ly deserving of good equipment. Nets may 
be obtained for $45 apiece — a price not be- 
yond the means of an alumnus or organiza- 
tion interested in the welfare of the tennis 
team and the recreational life of the college. 

We urgently need new nets for the tennis 
courts — will tliis need be supplied? 


How is one to accomplish 
something when one has to keep 
his eye to the future — his shoul-

Milligan Watches 
Barter Production 
In A New Light 

Milligan can possibly claim a 
first in regard to the recent 
Barter Theater production of "A 
Comedy of Errors" given in the 
college auditorium. The play 
was staged for the first time 
without the use of Barter's spe- 
cial portable light bridge, an 
ingenious device used in their 
stage- lighting effects. The fail- 
ure to use their special equip- 
ment was due to power difficul- 

The opening scenes of the 
drama were performed in the 
rather inadequate lighting of 
the permanent installations of 
the Milligan stage. Often the 
faces of the players were undis- 
tinguishable due to heavy shad- 
ows cast by red and blue foot- 
lights. Midway in the first act 
the house hghts were turned on, 
not only giving the audience a 
chance to sec the performers but 
also giving the latter an oppor- 
tunity to distinctly see each 
member of the capacity house. 

The Barter cast performed 
capably under adverse condi- 
tions and were favorably re- 
ceived by a very patient and 
s>*mpathetic audience. 


Yep:: I'll agree! That word 
THINKING is quite a word! 
Sometimes we do a lot of it. yet 
other limes I wonder if we're 
not immune to the word . . . 
h-m-m, could be.! 

Anyway I was JUST A'- 
THINKING that we ought to 
do a httle of our better think- 
ing out loud . . , O.K.. O.K_! 
I'll agree! I guess maybe some 
of it does come under the head 
of griping Be that as it may, 
I sincerely hope that you and I 
can do a lot of "constructive 
thinking" in this and future ar- 
ticles . . . 

You know, there's nothing like 
spending a little time practicing 
friendship! But do we spend 
enough time, If not. maybe we 
ought to examine more closely 
this thing called Friendship. 

Contrary to beUef. we cannot 
"make" friends, we have to cul- 
tivate them. Yes, "friendship is 
like a plant that has to be cul- 
tivated; it must be watered and 
tended if it is to produce sweet 
and wholesome fruit." Thus, 
there's more to friendship than 
just "liking" someone. We have 
to care for their thoughts, their 
feelings, anS their sufferings. 
We have to understand people; 
their hopes, their fears, and 
their aspirations. Actually to 
really cultivate friendship we 
have to apply the "all or none 
principle." That is, we must ac- 
cept a person in his entirety. 
We must accept his bad points 
as well as his good ones; his 
dislikes as well as his hkes; his 
advice as well as his queries; 
and above all we must attempt 
to aid that person in correcting 
his less desirable traits. 

Yes, in order to be a friend, 
we must completely "envelop" 
another person, accepting him 
in his entirety, but forever 
mindful of the mutual aid and 
benefit that may result from a 

Sounds fantastic,,. No! I don't 
think so. Don't we students 
have ideas? Don't we have likes 
and disUkes? Don't we have 
opinions? Of course we do! Well 
why not share them with other 
people, especially the adminis- 

Such a committee should be 
selected by the student body as 
a whole and should be an hon- 
est selection based upon the per- 
son's ability and sincerety in 
transmitting our gripes and sug- 
gestions to the President. 

Such a body as this could 
really be a "lifesaver" to Milli- 
gan . . . fir^t, it could put our 
legitimate gripes into action. 
Second, it could bring about a 
more harmonious atmosphere 
between the students and the 
faculty, and third, it could cer- 
tainly make Milligan a bigger 
and better college, whose at- 
tributes would ring loudly in 
our mouths and ears long after 
we have departed. 

If you're in favor of such an 
organization why not prove that 
"actions speak louder than 
words" and drop a letter to the 
Editor of the Stampodc ex- 
pressing >*our comments.

Survival or Conquest? 

by Doan E. Walker 
Crises lead to questionings. 
Questionings may be answered 
with pessimism or with optim- 
ism or with realism. The place 
to start answering questions is 
with a realistic survey of the 
situation. If the data is unfavor- 
able, then we need to strengthen 
that uncertamty with optimism. 
This is a valid procedure only 
if the spirit of men be strong. 
I am confident that America is 
strong and that Milligan Col- 
lege, as a part of the American 
society, is strong. 

To look realistically at the 
world situation today is to take 
into full account all of the fac- 
tors ranged against the free na- 
tions and all of the factors on 
the opposite side. While I am no 
military expert nor economic 
expert, yet a candid survey of 
all the varipus po^sitilities leads 
one to the. assurance that the 
combined military and economic 
forces of the free nations add up 
to a much more efficient total 
than that which is to be found 
on the side of enslavement. Add 
to this the intangible but most 
important item of the spirit of 
men, and you have an undefeat- 
able combination of factors 
working on the side of America 
and our allies. It will take he- 
roic measures, but our nation 
has heroic spirit. We can look 
with confidence to the future of 
the world, not merely a future 
of survival, but a future of con- 

By conquest we do not mean 
the subjugation of our enemies 
into some kind of colonial en- 
slavement. We mean conquest 
in terms of the liberation of all 
men. True, we cannot liberate 
them except they have the spir- 
it to accept liberty. This may be 
slower in coming to certain sec- 
tions of the world than to others. 
Over a long reach of time, how- 
ever, we may be confident that 
increasingly large areas of the 
earth's surface' will be blessed 
with the institutions of free- 
dom. This is the mark of prog- 
ress, and progress is the story 
of the liberated soul. 

The same is true of Milligan. 
Our physical assets are great. 
They will be greater. The strin- 
gency through which we pass 
this year is no new experience 
in the life of colleges. On the 
contrary, it is the universal ex- 
perience of free institutions. 
They live through those who 
have confidence in their services 
and who are willing to risk re- 
sources for the continuance of 
those services. We know friends 
are rallying to our support. We 
look with confidence toward 
overcoming this present diffi- 

To look realistically at our 
condition today is to recognize 
the tremendous power that lies 
in the spirit and the Ufe which 
is generated at Milligan. No one 
can be hero for four years, not 
even two years, without having 
imprinted indelibly upon his 
character those qualities that 
have made this school renowned. 
Survival is not too difficult 

It IS conquest that matters. In 
education, that conquest lies in 
the ability of the faculty to in- 
sill into the student a desire to 
learn, a desire to serve, a desire 
to live worthily of life. 

The conquest toward which 
we look is not one of mere ex- 
istence. Rather we ask at Milli- 
gan for a conquest of ignorance, 
of superstition, of evil, of pes- 
simism. We believe in the Prov- 
idence of God who guides the 
institutions of learning which 
recognize the gospel as the cen- 
ter, the well-spring, the dyna- 
mite out of which abundant life 

May I suggest to every stu- 
dent these considerations. 

First, use all the time you 
have to prepare yourself for 
life's emergencies in the college 
career. You will be tempted to 
leave many times. Discourage- 
ment comes, the crisis of war 
looms, your personal resources 
diminish. If you want to. you 
can overcome each of these dif- 
ficulties. Not long ago. a Milli- 
gan graduate told me that he 
came to this school with seven- 
ty-five cents and a suitcase full 
of clothes. He stayed four years. 
He graduated with distinction. 
His career has been worthy. He 
is proud of Milligan and grate- 
ful for what it did for him, and 
it can do as much for you if you 
have the willingness and the 
strength of soul to see it 

Secondly, let me suggest that 
you allow others to help you in 
your work in the ways which 
are most useful to you. Let your 
teachers help you. They want to 
be of assistance over and above 
the noi-mal course of duty. Ask 
for consultation. Ask for special 
work. Ask for guidimce. Your 
fellow-students can help you. 
Start out by helping one of 
them, then you have a claim. 
They will be delighted to help 
you if they think their help is 
appreciated. Let your Heavenly 
Father help you. Pray for His 
guidance. Worship in purity of 
spirit. Learn the spiritual laws 
of life. Start practicing them. 
Finally, set your eye on a goal 
and drive toward it. In so doing, 
do not forget that many things 
that may seem irrelevant to 
your purpose will be of inval- 
uable aid in days to come. The 
fact that English grammar may 
not seem too important to an 
engineer during his college da>'s 
has crippled many an engineer 
after his college days. The fact 
that mathematics seem difficult 
to a ministerial student may 
cause him to neglect one of the 
most beautiful and most impor- 
tant factors of his educational 
experience. No subject, no fact, 
no principle is ever without use 
to every alert mind In whatever 
career he may follow. Begin 
now and follow it through. 

We have just begun a new 
year. We soon begin a new se- 
mester. This can be the most 
important year and the most 
significant semester of your 
life. It will be such it you set 
yourself so to make it. 

Best wishes in this endeavor.

A recent visitor to the Milli- 
gan campus was Mrs. Laura 
Clark (Laura Worrell). Carroll 
Count>'. Virginia. This is Mrs. 
Clark's first visit to the college 
in 48 years. She Is an aunt of 
Mrs. Stahl. 

Mrs. Clark was 31 years old 
when she came to Milligan. 
Using a calf from her farm as 
security, she borrowed five dol- 
lars to pay her first expenses. 
She obtained work in a nearby 
home to help increase her in- 
come. When her income became 
too meager to meet the'college 
expenses, President HopwoOd 
came to the rescue. In a letter 
to her mother, September 22, 
1901, Laura wrote the following: 

"Professor Hopwood has been 
over several times and he is 
very kind. I was stringing beans 
one evening when he came and 
he strung beans and talked 
about my going to school. He 
said. ■'Girlie, aren't you going 
to school? He said that I ought 
to go and went on to tell about 
people who had gotten an edu- 
cation after they were 25 and 30 
years old. Mrs. Hopwood shook 
hands with me at church tonight 
and said I must come up often 
so they could get better ac- 
quainted with me. Professor 
Hopwood said he always ,gave 
one their tuition free when 
there were as many as twelve 
in the family. So, I believe that 
if 1 could get sewing to do to 
pay rent for a room and some- 
thing to live on, that I could go 
to school all right" 

Mrs. Clark had two sisters 
(Molly and Ola Worrell) and 
two brothers (Mont and Wise 
Worrell) who later came to 
Milligan. In recent years, two 
of her nephews (Frank and 
Jack Cooley) also carried on the 
Milligan tradition.

on the evening of January 10th, 
when the Milligan College Span- 
ish Club entertained the Span- 
ish -and- all-things -Spanish lov- 
ers of East Tennessee State Col- 
lege. The parlors were all deck- 
ed out in a typically colorful 
fashion, and a fire crackled 
brightly in the fireplace. Words 
of welcome, spoken in English 
by president Peggy Young, 
greeted State's delegation head- 
ed by Jean Wilson. The activi- 
ties of the evening included 
Spanish and American games, 
popping popcorn (a pleasant 
custom in Spanish-speaking 
countries too), and singing. Now 
and then a phrase of broken 
Spanish managed to make itself

Service Seekers 

The January meeting of the 
Service Seekers, on the evening 
of the eleventh, was highlighted 
by a talk by President Dean 
Walker concerning the relative 
merits of technical schools, pro- 
fessional schools, and liberal 
arts colleges. President Walker 
emphasized the superiority of 
the liberal arts college in offer- 
ing a well-rounded education to 
the young person. 

Refreshments were served at 
the conclusion of the talk, as the 
group participated in an infor- 
mal discussion of the topic. 
Mary Perry presided at the 

Christian Service Club 

Turn-about is fair play and 
very pleasant too, or so decided 
the members of the Christian 
Service Club as they sat back 
at the meeting last Monday (the 
22nd) and let the young people 
from the East Tennessee Chris- 
tian Home take charge. The 
service was inspirational and 
well attended; and the club is 
looking forward to having the 
group back again soon. 

Phys. Ed. Club 

In anticipation of the many 
"hard knocks" ahead of the 
gr.iduating students, the Phys. 
Ed. Club gave its senior mem-

MILLIGAN FIVE — Left to right they are Sam Pridon, John Am incTman. Sid Hathaway, Frank Dumisinecz and Kyman Grmdstaff. 


In the opening contest of a 
three-game Christmas vacation 
road trip, Milligan was trampled, 
79-42, the by David Lipscomb 
Bisons. Lispcomb is considered 
the top quint of the V. S. A. C, 
especially after the conquest of 
the tough Vanderbilt Commo- 
dores the week following the 
Milligan game. 

The Bisons jumped to an 
early lead and were never head- 
ed, as they proved that they 
should be the conference lead- 
er. Scoring honors were evenly 
divided for the Nashville quint, 
for the five starters all collected 
more than ten points each ; 
Moneypenny, the big pivot-man, 
led the way with 15 counters. 

Sid Hathaway copped scoring 
honors for both quints as he 
bagged 20 points. Milligan sore- 
ly missed the efforts of Du- 
misinecz, stellar guard, who sat 
out this contest and the one' 
with Cumberland, due to a leg 

The next night, the Buffs 
dropped a 64-58 decision to 
Cumberland University. Midway 
in the first half, Milligan held 
a 15-8 lead, but then Bennett, 
Bulldog sub, hit a scoring 
splurge and pulled his team up 
within one point, 32-31, at in- 

The Bulldogs pulled away in 
the last half to ice the game. 
Bennett and Hathaway each 
scored 23 points, while Pridon 
followed Sid with 15 counters. 

In the closing game of the 
tour, the Herd unleashed a wild 
scoring spree in the last half to 
overcome the Austin Peay Gov- 
ernors, 69-58. 

Dumisinecz fired the Buffs 
off to a fast start with brilliant 
shooting, as he peppered the 
nets with 12 points in the first 
ten minutes, but Austin Peay 
grabbed a 39-33 margin by half- 

It was a different slor>' in the 
second half as the Buffs, led by 


Back in the friendly confines of Cheek gym, Milligan 
trounced Emory and Henry, 76-68, for the second S. M. A. 
C. win against no defeats. 

After a 38-38 draw at intermission, the Buffs wrapped up 
the victory. The Herd was paced by two accurate sharp- 
shooters. Hathaway and Dumisinecz, with 23 and 19 points 
respectively. Charlie Harkins, veteran forward, took down 
16 for the Wasps. 

John Ammerman played a brilliant defensive game as he 
intercepted pass after pass and : 

stole the ball on frequent occa- throws, for 38 points! Frank Du-

After the disastrous results of 
bowl game predictions, I have

leave predictions of the future 
to those who gaze into crystal

According to the IstMt N. A- 
I. B. officisl statiBtica, Sid Hath- 
away has the 4th highest point 
average per game in the nation. 
Over 350 schools are listed in 
the ratings. Sid ia sporting a 
sensational 24.5 average for 11 
games. He has compiled a field 
goal percentag e ol .482 and a 
free throw percentage of .752. 
His single game high was 38 
against L. M. U. Here's good 
luck, Sid, for the remainder of 
the season — keep up that torrid 

We wish to acknowledge loss 
to the armed services of "Red" 
Mannes from the basketball 
squad and Ed Spraker. Jack 
Brummit, and J. T. Moore from 
the "B" outfit. The best of luck 
as they join Uncle Sam's team. 

An interesting football note 
(how did football get in here?): 
Milligan ranked 259th in the 
final national Williamson Rating 
System. The Buffs were rated 
ahead of maior colleges such as 
VPI, Bradley, Brigham Young. 
Nevada, and NYU. It was satis- 
fying to note that our rival. East 
Tennessee State, was mired in 
596th place. 338 notches twlow 

Are just professors absent- 
minded? Not while "Cat" King 
IS around. Here's a prime ex- 
ample — when the Buffs trav- 
eled to Bristol for the King Col- 
lege basketball game, manager 
Bill King went along to keep 
things moving in an orderly 
fashion. When the team was 
ready to leave the dressing room 
before the game, Coach Olds 
turned to Manager King and 
asked for the basketballs. 
Startled. Bill replied. "Coach, I 
knew I forgot something — I left 
the basketballs at home!" Now 
you see why coaches get old and 
bald before their time! 

To all mermaids and mermen, 
here's news of interest. Heating 
coils have been ordered for the 
swimming pool and will be in- 
stalled as soon as they arrive. 

The old coils were no longer 
usable, due to the fact that they 
were corroded by acid deposits. 
Realizing that the swimming 
pool plays an important role in 
the physical fitness and recrea- 
tional life of the college. Ray

Lord, only the other day 

Our beloved professor Mathes went away. 

We'll miss his friendly counsel and his broad con- 
genial smile. 

And being only human would have held him yet a 

But Thou in Thy eternal plan 

Chose to take this humble man 

To ahappier, greater dwelling place 

Where someday again we'll see his face. 

And tho he's from Milligan's campus gone 

His dear memory will linger on. 

So to this, Thy servant, we'll say good-bye 

Until we join him with Thee on high.

"Crossing The Bar" 

Sunset and evening star, 

And one clear call for me! 
And may there be no moaning of the bar. 

When I put out to sea. 

But such a tide as moving seems asleep. 

Too full for sound and foam, 
When that which drew from out the boundless deep 

■Turns again home. > 

Twilight and evening bell. 

And after that the dark! 
An dmay there be no sadness of farewell, 

When I embark. 

For though from out our bourne of Time and Place 

The flood may bear me far, 
I hope to see my Pilot face to face 

When I have crossed the bar. 


Milligan Hears President At 
Religious Emphasis Week Series 

All extra curricular campus activities were held to a 
minimum as Milligan College conducted one of its most 
successful series of meetings in connection with the annual 
nation-wide Religious Emphasis Week. The special meet- 
ings were held at the Hopwood Memorial Chapel, February 
18 through 23. 

Principal speaker for the oc- 
casion was Dj:. Dean E. Wallter, 
Milligan president. These serv- 
ices were under the direction of 
the committee on chapel and 
religion. This committee con-

Preparations For 
Choir Tour Enter 
Final Stage 

Miss Ruth White, Director of 
the Milligan Concert Choir, re- 
ports progress is being made as 
the choir begins the final phase 
of its preparation for the forth- 
coming concert tour. 

It was also announced that the 
choir itinerary is rapidly being 
completed as acceptances con- 
tinue to arrive in the mail. To 
date definite concert engage- 
ments have been scheduled in 
the following communities: Har- 
riman, Tenn.. Columbia. Ky..

tinsburg, West Virginia. 


Harry Schafcr, Jr., youthful 
missionary to India, spoke at nn 
informal gathering in the par- 
lors of Hardin Hall on Feb. 9 at 
1 p.m. It is most unfortunate 
that the entire student body 
weren't able to hear the vital 
message that he presented con- 
cerning the work of Christ that 
is being accomplished in far-off 
India. Mr. Schafcr plans to leave 
for this foreign land within tho 
next several months, and will 
be accompanied by his wife and 
two children. 

Student Preacher 
Ordained To Ministry 

The Englcwood Christian 
Church, Chicago, Illinois, was 
the scene of the ordination of 
Albert Zimmerman, which was 
held on January 31 during the 
regular mid-week prayer meet- 

Burton B. Thurston, minister 
of the candidate's home church, 
presented the charge. Five eld- 
ers of the congregation partici- 
pated in the laying on of hands. 
The ordination service conclud-

Light Opera Duo Will 
Appear Here March 8 

Miss Ivor Jones, chairman of 
the concert and lecture commit- 
tee, announces that the next of- 
fering in the 1950-51 series will 
feature the popular Doraine and 
Ellis in their presentation of 
"Romance in Song." This gala 
performance will be given in 
the college auditorium on 
Thursday evening, March 8, at 
7:30 P.M. 

Doraine Renard and Ellis Lu- 
cas stand today without peers 
in the field of due presentation 
of the light opera classics. Their 
costumed cameos have won the 
acclaim of audiences and critics 
wherever they have appeared. 
and their travels have taken 
them through twenty-three 

These young artists, in a few 
short years, have amassed a 
repertoire of colorfully costum- 
ed duets, born of the geniuses 
of two outstanding talents forg- 
ed together by tho bonds of 
complete happiness. 

From the day thoy met (tho 
summer of their graduations 
from college) theirs has been a 
most perfect love story. Au- 
diences are always impressed 
by the aura of beautiful romance 
that surrounds them on the 
stage, and their presentation is 
most appropriately titled "Ro- 
mance in Song."

And that is no joke! In many of our 
classrooms, the light (or rather lack of it) 
is anything but conducive to either atten- 
tiveness or study. Psychologists state that 
90% of what we learn is through what we 
see. If this be true, then Milligan students 
are being deprived of the privilege of 
learning, especially in classes where ma- 
terial is written on the blackboard. 

We realize that the proper spirit and 
the will to learn are very important in a 
school, but we also know that a school 
should provide at least the bare physical 
essentials for learning, one of which is good 

Although in some rooms this provision 
would call for new fixtures, there are some 
rooms in which, the situation could be 
solved merely by that addition of floures- 
cent tubes and higher wattage bulbs. It 
probably would also help to clean the re- 
flectors and globes. 

Below is a table compiled by the use of 
a photo-electric meter, and giving the 
measurement of the light in each room. 
Measurements are in toot-candles, being 
obtained by averaging the light reflected 
from a book toward the eyes, in at least 
five different positions in the room: 301 — 
L3. 304—1.2. 306—1.1. 307— .7. 308— .9. 114^

faithful servant in the education of youth. 
His name was Mr. James A. Tate, a mem- 
ber of the first graduating class of Milli- 
gan College. Mr. Tate durmg his day was 
a well known educator and editor. He had 
many friends because of his interest in 
providing a good education for the future 
leaders of the twentieth century. The 
James A. Tate School in Shelbyville, Ten- 
nessee stands as a testimony to the fact 
that his contribution to mankind was not 

Similarly the contribution of Mr. C. 
Todge Mathes will not soon be obscured 
by time. Many folks, young and old, will 
carry with them throughout the rest of 
their lives something of Mr. Mathes. To 
really serve others is a difficult thing to 
be successful in achieving. It is not a com- 
mon objective among the majority of us, 
to serve others, this in itself makes these 
two educators stand out head and shoul- 
ders above the multitude of their constit- 
uents. It isn't the ambitious, go-getter that 
thinks of helping others, nor does one who 
is constantly striving for success and fame 
have time to notice the good which he can 
do for his brother along the way. It isn't 
praise that we give these men but we are 
giving credit where credit is due. 


The death of Professor C. Hodge Mathes 
brings to mind another man who was a 


Some of us at one time or another are in 
a position in which we find ourselves the 
center of attention. At such times we may 
have 'some important thing to say — im- 
portant to us, at least — or we may have 
something we want to get across to our 
listeners. We expect our listeners to at 
least show some attention to what we say 
whether they are interested or not. It is 
somewhat annoying to any speaker, in- 
cluding teachers, to have some people in 
the audience who create a disturbance by 
talking, heckling and bothering some oth- 
er member of the audience. It would be 
mighty embarrassing if one would be call- 
ed out from the group because of his an- 
noying distractions. 

Another angle which we might look at 
briefly is the consideration of our fellow 
listeners. Have we ever been listening to 
the radio, reading a book or newspaper, or 
trying to talk over the telephone with 
someone pestering us for our attention? 
Well, we know that such a person is being 
rude unless there is an emergency. The 
same principle holds true m any kind of 
an audience. The least that is expected of 
us is to refrain from being a nuisance. 
There is also the possibility that one's 
mental growth doesn't permit one to keep 
his attention upon any object or idea with- 
out strain for more than a few minutes. 
Let's have some semblance of attention in 
chapel and classes.

All loo often, you and I as 
students, fail to give much 
weight lo the characteristics of 
leadership. More often than not 
we are prone to sit back and let 
someone else take the imtiauve. 
It's easy that way. 

Yet, sometimes 1 wonder if we 
are not overlooking some of the 
values of leadership that could 
add much to our own personal 

Leadership, it is true, can be 
an innate characteristic, but it 
can also be developed m the in- , 
dividuaL The professions and 
vocations for which we now 
strive to prepare ourselves will 
eventually bring us into contact 
and association with scores of 
people. Thus, regardless of our 
wishes, someone will be looking 
to each of us for guidance and 
example. We will have to take 
the imtiative to make this ex- 
ample a good one. If we are to 
influence our associates in a 
constructive manner, if we are 
to help other people realize their 
ambitions and goals, then wc 
must prepare ourselves NOW 
for the task. In order to realize 
some of our ideab and objec- 
tives we should endeavor to as- 
certain and develop the attri- 
butes peculiar of a good leader. 

Certainly, here at Milligan, 
we are afforded an excellent 
opportunity to develop leader- 
ship qualities, and by so doing 
we will not only enrich our own 
lives, but we will also contribute 
to the solution of school and 
student problems. 

The result of such an attitude 
on the part of our student body 
will make Milligan a more en- 
joyable place in which to live 
and study.

Before we shed our winter coats, 

Before the last gray snow departs. 

A sudden thrills runs round the world — 

The spring comes first in people's hearts. 
We know that it has only been a short while since 
Christmas, and yet it seems that spring has already come 
tripping in. The class rooms and dorms seem suddenly to 
have lost their attraction, as grassy spots lure classes out- 
doors and broad roads fill with carloads of joy-riders. 
Morning begins again to dawn with the chirping of birds. 
"Please" signs pop up out of nowhere! The bulbs planted 
in our flower beds will soon spill over with their wealth of 
bright colors. Just so a heart may spill over with a love 
affair which has been planted there in an unguarded mo- 
ment. These are the signs of spring. 

With all this lovely time and space around us every- 
where, why should we clutter up our lives with discontent, 
vexation, and worry? Blue belongs in the sky in spring; it 
is ever so much more becoming there. If, while we are 
cleaning our bureau drawers, we would take time out to 
sit down and clean the confusion from our minds, we 
might discover there thoughts as long mislaid as many of 
the articles we find in our drawers. Then, as we toss off 
our jackets, we will find that while spring comes bringing 
gifts for all, she has brought her magic happiness most of 
all to us, 

tember of this year. 

Now a junior. Arthur acquired 
a record of all "A's". with the 
exception of one "B", during his

ceiving the highest grades in the 
sophomore class last year.

Puerto Rican Royalty 
Now Student At 

Let us project ourselves for 
awhile, if you will, to the sunny, 
romantic isle of Puerto Rico. It 
is June of 1950, and we are in 
San Juan, the seat of the Puerto 
Rican government. The capital 
has just recently turned its at- 
tention to the lighter side of 
preparation for the two day 
celebration of the Lion's Club 
of this country. Highlighting the 
gala occasion is the selection of 
"Queen of the Island" for 1950. 

Representatives of the many 
clubs throughout the Island are 
arriving with their respective 
candidates who will soon vie 

into the past as we, exceedingly 
happy that Maria is the new 
Queen of the Island, say fare- 
well to it 

Maria Mayol, Milligan junior, 
is one of four Puerto Ricans 
who are currently enrolled at 
the college. Although Maria is 
a newcomer to East Tennessee, 
she has already endeared her- 
self to the student body by her 
sunny smile and gracious per- 
sonality. Maria's fellow Puerto 
Ricans here at Milhgan include 
Cayita Pagan, Ana Traverzo, 
and Joaquin Segarra, all of 
whom we are likewise proud to 
add to the ever increasing num- 
ber of students who have come 
from the beautiful isle in the 
West Indies to become members 
of the Milligan family, and to 
share in the rich experience of 
our college life, as we search 
together for knowledge. 




for the coveted place of honor 
as "Queen of the Island." We 
are particularly interested in 
the candidate from San Sebas- 
tian, for it is our own Maria 
Luisa Mayol (Icha), who carries 
our hopes and wishes for suc- 

We learn that Maria has ar- 
rived in San Juan accompanied 
by her sister and brother-in-law. 
and that they have registered 
at the Carioe Hilton, a new ho- 
tel in the Hilton Chain of Amer- 
ica. . . . 

The hours preceding the oc- 
casion for which Maria has come 
are filled with many activities, 
most important of which are 
luncheon at the Escambrion 
Beach Club, and an afternoon 
modelling date sponsored by 
several of San Juan's exclusive 

Festivities of the evening are 
to be set in motion by the for- 
mal introduction of some twen- 
ty-five fair daughters of the 
island, all candidates for the 
crown, followed by the corona- 
tion of the new queen. The re- 
tiring queen will then be intro- 
duced, following which will be 
the presentation of a beautiful 
bouquet of carnations to the 
new queen. 

The eagerly awaited moment 
arrives as the governor draws a 
card from the container holding 
the names of the candidates. A 
Hushed silence falls on the huge 
gathering as he announces the 
name of the 1950 "Queen of the 
Island." It is that of Maria Lu- 
isa Mayol. Immediately Gisela, 
Queen of 1949, places the crown 
upon the head of "Icha." her 
successor, and the press repre- 
sentative presents our new 
queen with the bouquet of car- 
nations. Queen Maria steps for- 
ward to join her escort of the 
evening, and together they be- 
gin the dancing festivities. 

The final hours of the Queen's 
stay in San Juan arc busily oc- 
cupied witli personal appear- 
ances at special parties and ban- 
quets given in her honor. The 
fleeting moments of the unfor- 
gettable occasion are fast- fading 

Gospel Teams Active 

There has been considerable 
iictivity among Milligan's Gos- 
pel Teams during recent weeks. 
A team comprising Anleah Wil- 
lis. Capt.. Eileen and Joe Suth- 
erland, Jim Wyse and accom- 
panied by Miss Mildred Wesh- 
imer traveled to Ripley, Ohio 
on February 4. 

On February II, Robert Van- 
Lew's team of Harriet Bullock, 
Mary Lou Oakley, Dee Sims, 
Tom Hawes. Irene Parker, and 
Cy Huston visited the Church 
of the Brethren in Johnson City. 

February 18 was the date of 
a trip to Knoxville, Tenn., by a 
team captained by Dick Moore, 
and also including Paul Conkin, 
Shirley DeArmond, Christine 
Reach, and Wm. Rodefer, Else- 
•^vhere, the team composed of 
Marshall Leggett, Capt, Ruth 
Cagle. Phil R a u s c h , Becky 
Shortridge, Grant Layman, and 
Betty Turmell were visiting the 
Veteran's Home in Johnson 

Marshall Leggett's team was 
on the move again the following 
weekend and this time traveling 
to Hillsboro, Ohio. Those mak- 
ing ihetrip included Betty Tun- 
nell. Becky Shortridge. Grant 
Layman, Joe Sutherland, and 
accompanied by Miss Mildred 

David Brooks' team is sched- 
uled for a trip to Carlisle. Ky., 
on March 4. Team personnel in 
addition to Brooks includes Sara 
Brooks, Dorlha Dixon, and Peg- 
gy Young. 



Recently, a special balloting was conducted by the "Stampede" to determine the two most 
outstanding students m each class. This vote was based on the following student characteristics: 
scholarship, character, initiative, personality, participation, and thoughtfulness. 

Pictured above are the first of those who were considered top students. 'The Stampede's 
Seniors of the Year." The choices of the Junior and Sophomore Classes will appear in the 
March issue of this paper, and the Freshman duo will be presented in the May edition.

Recent word reaches us that 
Claude Calloway, class of 1950, 
hos been recognized in the syl- 
labus published by the Syracuse 
University School of Journalism

reading required of their stu- 
dents in the field of Religious 
Journalism. Claude's contribu- 
tions include two papers, one 
on "Isaac Errett" and the other 
on the "Christian Standard." 

This news is of unusual note 
when considering that Calloway 
is a comparative newcomer in 
this field and yet has succeeded 
in placing his work among that 
of writers of long experience. 
Such an auspicious start sen-es 
to indicate that we shall be 
hearing more and more of this 
young journahst. 

Spanish Club 

The party-loving Spanish 
peoples have nothing on our 
own Milligan College Spanish 
Club, which just had another of 
its many parties; this time a 
"Fiesta para Amigos." in honor 
of the dub members who have 
entered the service, namely, Ray 
Carter and Jim T. Moore. The 
group spent part of the evening 
addressing post cards to these 
two absent members; then, be- 
cause the "fiesta" appropriately 
fell on Quin Segarra's birthday, 
(Feb. 7). the club made merry 
in his honor, with the help of 
songs and cake, plus the extras. 

Christian Service Club, 

Ask anyone who knows, an? 
he'll tell you what a huge suc- 
cess the Christian Service Club 
banquet turned out to be! Feb- 
ruary 12 was the night, and the 
place was the Roan Restaurant. 
The tables were appropriately 
and beautifully decorated in the 
spirit of Valentine's Day. (the 
sentiment of which without a 
doubt lent much atmosphere to 
the occasion!) 

Master of Ceremonies was 
Marshall Leggett. and Bob Rhea 
led the group in spirited sing- 
mg. If laughter aids digestion 
there wasn't one upset stomach 
in the group after the guest en- 
tertainer, Mr. George W. Ann- 
brister. from Bristol, performed 
several pantomines in costume, 
ond aimed some much-appreci- 
ated comments in the direction 
of the' faculty table. (Could the 
fact that Mr. Armbrister sat 
right next to Prof. Edwards ' 
have anything to do with the 
personal touch evident in these 

The evening was highlighted 
by a brief word from Pres. Wal- 
ker concerning Christian living 
in an>' vocation. E\'eryone who 
attended the banquet is already 
anticipating the affair next 

Service Seekers 

The Scn.'ice Seekers held their 
February meeting on the eve- 
ning of the 8th. with Mrs. 
Hedger as guest speaker. Mrs. 
Hedger gave her \'iews on the 
place and work of the church 
sccrctar>'. a subject on which 
she ii. well qualified to speak.

Collegiate basketball needs a thorough house-cleaning! 
This fact has been emphasized by three major scandals this 
season. Early in the year, Manhattan College was involved 
in a scandal and now City College of New York has become 
entangled in the gamblers' vicious web. 

News of the C. C. N. Y. disgrace startled hoop fans from 
coast to coast. Last year, the "Beavers" were the toast of 
the basketball world: their sophomore-studded outfit swept 
both the National Invitational and N. C. A. A. tournaments. 
That was a feat never before accomplished in hoop his- 
tory. The C. C. N. Y. hoopsters were acclaimed as national 
champs — one of the finest cage groups ever assembled. 
They seemed a "shoo-in" to cop national honors again this 

However, City College lost ball games — by close mar- 
gins. The "Beavers" dropped out of the lime-light of fame, 
only to be thrust back into the light of infamy. The district 
attorney of New York revealed that Ed Warner and Ed 
Roman, two outstanding Ail-Americans, and Al Roth, all 
first-stringers, had been "throwing" ball games. What hap- 
pened there is no doubt happening in other instances. 

Gambling has so cast its ominous shadow over basket- 
ball that teams cannot but be aware of the "point spreads" 
quoted for their hardwood contests by the betting gentry. 
Gamblers approach players and attempt to bribe them — all 
that the player has to do is see that his team doesn't win 
by more than the number of points specified by the odds 
makers or make sure that his team loses by more than the 
number of points given on parlays. It is just that simple — 
you can still win for dear old alma mater, but don't win by 
two many points! 

Gambling thrives in New York, but it is a menace 
wherever there are "bookies" and gamblers. The coUeges 
are not at fault, but bigtime gambling is. It is capable of 
tightening its tenacles so that the true spirit of basketball 
will be strangled, because athletics are becoming big busi- 
ness and gambling is going along hand in hand with this 

Why can't basketball clean house and return to a fresh, 
competitive basis? 

Being eliminated from the 
Smoky Mountain Conference 
Tournament by Emory and Hen- 
ry, the tired Buffs rang down 
the curtam on the cage season. 
Hampered by the loss of play- 
ers, the Herd's strength was sap- 
ped, which all added up to one 
thing: a mediocre campaign. 

Since the close of last year, 
Milhgan lost the use of these 
eligible performers: Kenny Hy- 
der, Dick Kennedy, Ray Forbes, 
Frank Duraisinecz, Sara Pndon, 
Dick Cook, and Pat Ellis. That's 
quite an ensemble! This left a 
burden on the shoulders of the 
subs and Capt. Sid Hathaway, 
the only returning regular. 

Sid climaxed the season in a 
blaze of glory as he copped 66 
points in three tournament 
games. His seasonal total was 
574; his four year total amount- 

ed to 1,983, the 8th highest total 
in basketball history. 

The Buffs will need some new 
blood next year to improve the 
9-16 record of this past season. 
However, it is impossible to 
count on anything in the future 
due to the international situa- 
tion; Uie manpower of every 
college will be drained. 

Here's the solution to MiUi- 
gan's problem! Find and recruit 
five potential young hoopsters 
over 6' 6" (which eliminates 
them from the draft!) and there 
you have a nucleus for a whiz- 
bang outfit, according to modern 
collegiate standards! This group 
would be able to control both 
backboards, sink easy crip shots, 
block passes and shots — in short, 
everything! Sounds good on pa- 
per, doesn't it? Now, just find 
those five!!

Mlilligan bids farewell to Sid- 
"ney Hathaway, one of the finest 
athletes evej- produced in this 
area. The versatile captain 
leaves behind an enviable rec- 
ord, so it is only fitting that he 
be paid due tribute at the close 
of this basketball season. 

Sid. a native of Elizabethton. 
Tennessee, has overcome the 
handicap which faces every 
short fellow in basketball, the 
tall man's game. He is only 
5'10", but his 170 pounds are 
well-packed on that frame. 
Even though he is small, Sid is 
blessed physically, being well- 
coordinated, shifty, fast, and 
possessing a strong arm. in ad- 
dition to an accurate eye. This 
last factor has made him a high 
scorer in basketball and an out- 
standing hitter in baseball 

Although a large portion of 
this personal portrait will be de- 
voted to Sid's hoop prowess, his 
talents in the realm of the dia- 
mond must be mentioned. His 
name now adorns the roster of 
Rochester, in the AAA Interna- 
tional League. In his first two 
years of pro ball, he has consis- 
tently clouted better than .325. 
Sid is not a long ball slugger, 
but he is a timely clutch hitter. 
His fleotness afoot often adds 
those valuable extra bases. Be- 
ing a polished glove man and 
nimble on the field, he is equal- 
ly at home in the infield or out- 
field. However, he displays his 

talents to the best advantage in 
the center-field slot. The con- 
sensus of opinion is that Sid is 
destined for the majors. If Uncle 
Sam doesn't get him, watch out 
for Sid Hathaway with the St 
Louis Cards! 

It is fortunate that the Smoky 
Mountain Conference allows 
professionals in one field of 
athletics to engage in amateur 
competition in another, for this 
has given Milligan a lift in bas- 
ketball, even though Sid is a 
pro baseball player. In fact, Sid 
has given the Buffs such a lift 
during his 4-year career, that 
his name is almost synonomous 
with "Mr. Basketball" in this 

It is not difficult to write con- 
cerning Sid's ability, for it is 
easy to describe his exceptional 
talent. First of all, one roust not 
assume that because of his bet- 
ter than 21 points -per -game av- 
erage that he is only a high 
scorer — that is far from the 
truth. He is a tight defensive 
man, an aggressive ball-hawk; 
he follows his shots up for pos- 
sible rebounds (there aren't too 
many!); he is a sharp passer and 
floor man; in other words, he is 
a versatile ball player! His ag- 
gressive style is an inspiration 
to his team, for he is always 
pushing. In fact, he is so aggres- 
sive that many times ho leaves 
the game with five personals. 
This is not stated to his discredit 
— it is merely the result of his 

type of play and the all-con- 
suming desire to win. 

His versatility is carried over 
into the scoring column, for Sid 
has mastered many different 
shots. Varied types of port-side 
shots (he is a southpaw) have 
an uncanny knack of swishing 
the nets for him. He bags seem- 
ingly impossible buckets from 
impossible angles and positions. 
During his first three years, he 
played the comer position and 
used to advantage his most po- 
tent weapon, a left-handed hook 
shot However, this season, he 
has proven even more adept at 
hitting set shots from far out, 
one-handers from the foul cir- 
cle, and "drive-ins" under the^ 
bucket ' 

His first three years found 
him teamed up with Kyle Mid- 
dleton and Kermy Hyder as 
knockout blows, while this sea- 
son he and Frank Dumisinecz 
have provided the scoring 
punch. At the end of his second 
year, he had accumulated 935 
points. He added 473 points in 
his junior year and this season 
he counted 491. not including 
the Maryville game and at least 
four games in the two touma- 
merits. (He scored 26 points 
against State in his debut at the 
V. 8. A. C. tournament!) His 
cumulative total far exceeds 
1.900 points for his 4->'car ten- 
ure, which places him as the 9th 
highest scorer in the history of

In the spring a young man's 
fancy turns to thoughts of — 
yes. you guessed it! — baseball 
and tennis. Already with the 
first warm weather, the base- 
ball and tennis enthusiasts her- 
ald the approach of spring and 
their respective sports. 

By the way. here's a hot tip! 
The Buff tennis team is loaded 
this year — keep your eye on this 
page in the next issue of 'The 
Stampede" for the inside dope. 

David Lipscomb College gain- 
ed prestige for the Volunteer 
State Athletic Conference by 
toppling tough Vanderbilt The 
Lipscomb five is rated the fa- 
vorite in the V. S. A. C, tourna- 

The Milligan "Deacons" pull- 
ed an upset by lacing Johnson 
Bible CoUege, 53-47. 

The girls basketball team, op- 
erating unofficially, challenged 
the State lassies — the result was 
a thrilling spectacle! Don't ask 
me who won! 

Kyle Middleton, *50. a four- 
letter stalwart is now cavort- 
ing for the Wrays Shoppers of 
Knoxville, a fast independent 
outfit He is now employed in 
Boy Scout work. 

Ray Forbes, whose athletic 
career was side-lined by Cupid, 
is now manager of a federal 
loan office in Kentucky. 

The Buffs and Middle Teimes- 
see collaborated to score a total 
of 199 points in one game. That's 
quite a rash of points very sel- 
dom seen by hoop fans. 

Congratulations to T. P. Jones 
for his fine work as editor of "P. 
E. Talk" — he makes an excellent 
contribution to the Phys Ed 

"Dumi" and T. P. show great 
potentiality and promise as 
whistle- looters. There's two 
budding officials who won't be- 
come blooming idiots! 

Good News! 

Another suggestion has borne 
fruit! The minstrel cast has de- 
cided to perform again in order 
that sufficient funds might be 
gathered for the purchasing of 
the tennis nets. Since this must 
be done after the choir returns 
from tour.' the administration is 
backing the project by obtain- 
ing the nets now and then being 
reimbursed by the minstrel 
profits at a later date. This plan 
has been completed in order 
that the tennis nets might be 
available as soon as possible. 
Thanks for the splendid cooper- 

entered in the records of the all- 
time greats at the conclusion of 
this hardwood campaign. 

There's no doubting the 
brightness of this star — the 
name of Sid Hathaway will long 
be remembered at Milligan Col- 
lege. Here's good luck to you, 
Sid! May you be just as suc- 
cessful in the game of life!

A.A.C. List Includes 
Two Milligan Seniors 

According to Dean Sahli, Nel- 
ta Hyder and Paul Conkin have 
been nominated by the College 
Faculty for inclusion in the As- 
sociation of American College's 
list of prospective college teach- 

This honor, which goes to a 
very limited number of college 
seniors annually marks them as 
having had outstanding college 
records and as being capable of 
becoming good college teachers. 
The purpxise of this recognition 
is to draw tho better students 
into college teaching. 

When an institution, such as 
Milligan, nominates n student 
for this position, it obligates it- 
self to use special cftbrt to gain 
admission for that student into 
one of tho bettor graduate 
schools of tho country, and to 
assist them in gaining scholar- 
ship awards from these schools. 

The names of Nelta and Paul 
will be among those published 
in a forthcoming issue of the 

Joins Faculty 

Ear! Stuckenbruck, a recently 
returned missionary from Tu- 
bingen, Germany, has assumed 
the role of teacher of German 
courses here at Milligan. Mr. 
Stuckenbruck, who returned 
with his wife to this country in 
December of last year is filling 
the position left vacant by the 
death of Prof. Mathes. 

Mr. Stuckenbruck, who was 
engaged in a missionsiry project 
for the European Evangelistic 
Society of which Dr. Walker is 
president, was working toward 
the establishment of a school 
for the training of Christian 
Church ministers. The school is 
to be located in Tubingen, Ger- 
many, which is a favorable lo- 
cation because of the proximity 
of the University of Tubingen, 
renowned for its Faculty of The- 
ology. This location will allow 
any ministerial student to attend 
the courses in the Faculty of 

Prof. Stuckenbruck states, 
"There is a need for a mission 
of this kind which proposes to 
recall Christendom to the foun- 
dation of the Church in Christ 
because so much of Christianity 
has acquired elements which are 
alien to the original traditions 
of the church according to the 
New Testament Our plans are 
to encourage churches to take 
an active interest in this mis- 
sion so that it may have ade- 
quate facilities, particularly the 
building and chapel for the 
school. We expect to return to 
Tubingen as soon as this pro- 
gram is assured." 

Mr. Stuckenbruck acquired his 
A.B. degree from the University 
of Kansa-s. and in 1946 he re- 
ceived his B.D. degree from But- 
ler University School of Re- 
ligion. His wife, originally from 
Florida, received her A.B. de- 
gree from Butler University. 
Previous to their two-year stay 
in Germany, Mr. and Mrs. 
Stuckenbruck studied for two 
years in the University o( Bir- 
mingham in England. His wife 
and two children plan to join 
him here shortly. 


The forthcoming Christian 
Conventions will attract a num- 
ber of Milligan faculty and stu- 
dent body. The first to convene 
will be the Southern Christian 
Convention in Atlanta, Geo"rgia, 
March 27 to 29. Donald SahU, 
Harley F, York, and Henry 
Webb will attend, the latter be- 
ing one of the speakers on the 

The North American Chris-

is referred to by college admin- 
istrators when securing staff 
members for their institutions. 


On this past Monday. March 
26th, the first issue of a new 
publication promoting Milligan 
came from the presses. The new 
paper is entitled "Mill- agenda", 
and, as the name impUes, is to 
acquaint people with activities 
here at Milligan. 

According to information from 
the Dean's Office, the paper is 
designed to better inform the 
public as to the program of 
Milligan College, and will be 
sent to a long mailing hst, in- 
cluding alumni, churches, 
schools, and prospective stu- 

Pres. Walker is serving as 
editor of the paper, and is be- 
ing assisted by a committee of 
the faculty. Prof. Lewis is 
handling the printing. The new 
publication, which is expected 
to contribute considerably In 
making Milligan well - known 
both in the local area and among 
its more distant friends is to be 
issued six times during the cal- 
endar year. 

The first issue includes an 
editorial by Dr. Walker, a finan- 
cial statement, a tribute to Prof. 
Mathes, and articles on tho ar- 
rival of Mr. Stuckenbruck. the 
choir tour and the district tour- 
ney of the National Forensic 
League, which is to be held here

Milligan Students 
Enjoy Trip To Circus 

On the evening of March 19th, 
the entire student body of Mil- 
ligan College enjoyed a "Circus 
Party" in Cheek Hall, sponsored 
and planned by the various club 
presidents. The party was car- 
ried out in true circus style, and 
featured barkers, sideshows, and 

The Pre-Med Club, besides 
placing Tom Long in a cage as 
"Constance, the Snake-eater," 
was responsible for a weight- 
lifting act. The Spanish Club, 
which promoted a side-show, 
was also responsible for a fake 
disrobing act, which kept every- 
one, even Cayita Pagan, in 
stitches. And a rope-walking 
act was put on by the clowns: 
Tom Hawes, Janet Catlett, and 
Slick Wall. A circus band, led 
by Ringmaster Robert Perry 
Rhea, lended the finishing touch 
to the circus atmosphere. 

A $5 first prize award went 
to the "M" Club for its "Variety 
Show" which featured the top 
performers in the entertainment 
field, and a $3 second prize 
award was given to the Pre-Med 
Club for its "snake-eater" act. 

Nelta Hyder is the one to 
whom the greatest amount of 
credit is due for the success of 
this long - to - be - remembered 
party. She was assisted by a 
food committee consisting of 
Marion Elliott and Paul Conkin, 
and a decoration conrmiittee con- 
sisting of Peggy Young and 
Charlotte Hobbs. Special men- 
tion is here given of the fact 
that the entire amount of pop- 
corn was graciously donated by 
the management of the Majestic 
and Liberty Theatres of Johnson

hood were spent in various mis- 
sionary stations along the Chi- 
nese-Tibetan border. This mis- 
sion field is often referred to 
as the "Roof of the world." Two 
years were spent at Yen Chin

With the loss of football from the intercollegiate pro- 
gram, Mi lligan College should strengthen the remaining 
intercollegiate sports to take up the slack created by drop- 
ping the gridiron game. 

The value of a winning team in a major sport to a 
liberal arts college must be realized. Football has been dis- 
continued, so the other major intercollegiate sport, basket- 
ball, must be pushed and expanded. 

Why? Because, first of all, a winning team gives a 
student body a spirit and sense of pride that can be achiev- 
ed in no other way. This is an almost indefinable something 
that adds immeasurably to college life. Milligan has main- 
tained a winning tradition down through the years, both 
on the gridiron and the hardwood. Now it is up to basket- 
ball to keep alive this spirit and prides. 

Secondly, it is evident that not only sectional, but even 
national, fame can be won by a small college in basketball. 
It is practically impossible to achieve this in the pigskin 
parade, because it is completely dominated by the large 
schools. However, in basketball, it is a different story, 
Smaller colleges such as Marshall, Hamline, and Beloit 
have scaled the heights in the past five years. The Buffs 
could do this, for they, too, have played large universities 
such as Tennessee and William and Mary within the same 
period. It is possible for Milligan to again schedule larger 
schools and climb to national prominence. 

What does this all mean? A nationally known institu- 
tion and a proud student body. Milligan College should 
build a winning basketball team. This can be accomplished 
by recruiting the best high school hoopsters and college 
transfers available in this section of the country. Outbid 
larger schools — this is possible since the funds formerly 
used for football scholarships can now be applied to ten or 
fifteen basketball scholarships. That's the way to build an 
outstanding team — beat the bushes until the ten young 
men are found that can be moulded into a winning outfit. 

Milligan College can have an outstanding basketball 
team if it wants one badly enough. How badly do we want 

Buffs Drop Football iFrom 
Intercollegiate Program 

Other Major Sports Not Affected 
By The Action Of The College Board 

Dr. Dean E. Walker, president of Milligan College, 
disclosed on March 20, 1951. that Milligan has temporarily 
dropped football from its intercollegiate athletic program. 

The executive committee adopted a resolution, stress- 
ing that this move was taken because of necessity, not de- 
sire. "Confronted with uncer- 

tainties such as the drait and gt. Marys, Corpus Chrisli, Amer-

Hurlers Hold Key To 
Buff Baseball Fortunes 

"What 1 wouldn't give for two 
more good pitchers!" Sounds 
like Coach Spraker, doesn't it? 
It is — baseball has rolled around 
again and with it the worries of 
a coach building from the shat- 
tered remains of last season's 
nine. If you have a blazing fast 
ball or a tricky curve, you can 
ease the coach's dilemma. 

Departed from last year's 
team are all three regular out- 
fielders; Dick Kennedy, Jack 
Bible, and Sam Pridon; the reg- 
ular infielders: "Lefty" Bowers. 
Kenny Hyder. Ernie Ellenburg, 
and Jim Bentley; gone are the 
two aces- of the mound crew; 
Morris Shanks and Bobby Miles. 
That means a lot of rebuilding! 

The returning lettermen in- 
clude two pitchers: Kymen 
Grindstaff and "Rawhide" Par- 
due; two catchers: "Ace" Ad- 
kins and "Red" Riffe; and Hen- 
ry Bemat, a third sacker. Coach 
Spraker plans to use Adkins at 
first base and Pardue in center- 
field. This nucleus will be aided 
by Mack Wolfe and Leonard 
Gallimore. transfer students, 
who will hold down infield 
slots; "Snazz" Edens. a return- 
ing portsidcr from last spring's 
pitching corps; and newcomers 
Tom Hawks. "Red" Lyons. Cliff 
Winters, and Lionel Surrat 

Due to an increased teaching 
load, Coach Spraker will turn 
over most of his duties with the 
team to Sid Hathaway. Milli- 
gan's representative in pro base- 
ball. A strenuous 14 - game 
schedule has been arranged, 
commencing April 12 with Car- 
son-Newman, at Anglin Field. 

Outside Looking In 

Jimmie Smyth, sports editor 
of the Johnson City Press- 
Chronice, recently penned some 
cleat thinking in a fine editor- 
ial concerning "why small col 
leges quit football." Here are a 
few representative statements 
that are worthy of passing on. 

"Football has become big bus' 
iness in many ways, with the 
smaller, not so colorful schools 
being undermined by the tre- 
mendous proportions the larger 
ones have gained. 

Both institutions (Milligan and 
Tusculum) cut a wide swath in 
football circles while they were 
playing. Milligan. in particular, 
was tough to down even in its 
last year of competition. The 
Buffs never shunned tough foes. 
As an indication of how furious- 
ly Milligan fought to stay in the 
upper strata of small college 
football, the Buffs tied their 
arch rival. E.T.S.C. just last fall. 

Neither of the colleges can be 
blamed for giving up football. 
Football is a great game, but 
this is an age of change. Perhaps 
the changes that are occurring 
in this area may point up the 
need for some positive action to 
keep the little schools operating 
on the proper athletic level. 

The pendulum is top-heavy on 
the WTong side. It's time to do 
something to balance the power 
of big-college and small-college 
football. The value of the latter 
may become too de-omphasizcd, 
leaving nothing but a monster 
of big business in the name of 
coUego footboll." Amen! Amen! 


Baseball will be set back 
twenty years! "Ace" Adkin* is 
going to try his hand at relief 
pitching. Ho say*. "They ain't 
teen nuthin' yet what can be 
done to that borsehide." Talk 
about spit ballsl His Is so cov- 
ered with tobacco juice thai it 
drips acxofis the platel Batters 
don't ttand a chance. 

A final check on Sid Hatha- 
way's collegiate total in basket- 
ball revealed 2.016 points in- 
cluding regular season tussles 
and tournaments. His two ef- 
forts in the Burley Tournament 
of 1949 had been overlooked in 
a previous total. 

It would be nice to see Bob 
HiUier enter the Milligan Re- 
lays, even though the Buffs will 
not enter a team. He's a fast 
440 man. This would also be a 
good idea for other track men 
here at Milligan. 

Congratulations to T. P. Jones 
and Randy Cooper, two Phys. 
Ed. majors, for their -outstand- 
ing efforts in behalf of the new 
student union building.

pany has disclosed that the

Tennis Prospects Bright 
For Herd Net Squad 

Looking forward to a promis- 
ing season, the Buff netmen are 
preparing for their opening tilt 
at Tennessee Wesleyan. April 6. 

With four capable veterans re- 
turning from last season, the 
prospects are bright, if not out- 
standing. Heading the list is 
Paul "Shorty" Williams, the 
brilliant No. 1 man — you can 
look for him in the single cham- 
pionships of the conference this 
coming May! He's tops with his 
slashing, accurate singles game. 
Backing him up will be Walt 
"Crooner" Mathis. who held 
down the No. 3 position last 
spring; Marshall "Fastball" Leg- 
gott. No. 4 man Inst year; and 
Judson "Dud" Harris, the jo- 
turning No. 5 man. These three 
will be fighting it out for the 
number two slot vacated by 
Fred Wallenfclsz. who gradu- 

These four will be aided by 

two who will be chosen by elim- 
ination tournaments from Na- 
than Hale, Joe Sutherland. 
Doug Morehead, Phil Roush, 
Randy Cooper, Becky Harris, 
Bill Rodefor, and Grant Layman. 

Three now nets will be avail 
able for the tennis campaign, 
which will greatly improve the 
tennis facilities. Taking proper 
care of the equipment and be- 
ing a "jack of all trades" will 
be the new manager, Kara 
Bright, a senior phys. ed. major. 

Coach Mynatt has prospccLs 
of top-notch caliber, but must 
improve doubles play and the 
work of the fifth and sixth po- 
sitions, for these were the weak- 
nesses which lost several 9- 
point matches by close margins 
last season. If there are any

Important Changes In 
Curriculum Effected 

According to information from 
the Dean's Office, three im- 
portant changes will be made in 
the scholastic program next 
year. These will affect many of 
the students and should be noted 
by them. 

A thorough revision of the 
curriculum in the religion de- 
partment has been affected in 
order to better coordinate the 
various phases of the depart- 
ment and to insure all religion 
students' having more of the 
fundamental courses. New pre- 
requisites are being set up for 
some of the subjects, and Church 
History will be added to the list 
of required subjects. 

The B. S. Degree will once 
again be* conferred upon stu- 
dents of Milligan. This will al- 
low those majoring in the fields 
of Business Administration, 
Mathematics, and Health & 
Physical Education a choice be- 
tween the B. A. and the B. S 
Degrees. In the case of the lat- 
ter, certain prescribed courses 
will replace the requirements in 
the language field, 

An important addition to the 
curriculum of the college is that 
of courses in Elementary Edu- 
cation. These will enable stu- 
dents to obtain the knowledge 
necessary to acquire a teaching 
certificate in Elementary Edu- 
cation. A program will be insti- 
tuted for practice teaching in 
the elementary grades, similar 
to that now in use for prospec- 
tive high school teachers. 

Several other new courses are 
being added to the curriculum. 
These are: Applied Art. Com- 
parative Economic Systems, 
World Geography. History of 
Russia. Plant Physiology, Plant 
Ecology, and Radio Broadcast-

Christian Education, as President Walker 
pointed out in his inaugural address, is more 
than the presentation of factual material. 
In addition, "let it be said that at Milligan 
each one is dedicated to self-improvement." 
Character is built by each person that has 
it. But we must not forget that a Christian 
college can teach character building traits. 

Our classrooms sometimes imply that 
some of our teachers either lack faith in this 
truth, or lack energy. When a teacher 
guards his students' eye movements with 
the same watchfulness that a policeman 
watches the hands of a shoplifter, you 
might wonder if both aren't revealing the 
same distrustfulness. 

There is no question whether we have 
cheating here at Milligan. We all recognize 
that we do have it in varying degrees 
among some of our students. But we should 
be slow to insist that we have anyone who 
is not trustworthy. 

A simple thing that proved a lot as to the 
difference in Milligan and most other 
schools was Mrs, Meacham's candy store. 
Everybody made their own change and the 
store made its profit. An honor system has 
a lot that Ccin be said both for and against 
it. It can be made a most elaborate spy sys- 
tem, or it can be made a means of develop- 
ing honor, honesty, and a Christian charac- 
ter which is one of our goals at Milligan. 

A workable honor system is possible only 
when at least ninety percent of the student 
body and faculty thoroughly understand, 
and are in sympathy with its principles and 
methods. It cannot be hurried into. It needs 
at least two years of preparation. 

In one of the best liked systems, the 

teacher is requested, not required, to leave 
the room during the tests unless the nature 
of the test requires the teacher to give it. 
The emphasis must be on the prevention, 
not the detection, of cheating. All environ- 
mental conditions which allow or encourage 
dishonesty must be carefully removed. The 
students must report any method of cheat- 
ing or any of the above conditions to the 
teacher without revealing the person. Then 
he must help that person develop the prop- 
er attitudes, and help remove this person's 
need for cheating. Cheating decreases, it 
has been proven, with a person's years in 
school, average increase in grades, and con- 
fidence in the- subject in which he is being 

Milligan students have an unusually good 
chance to make their system work. It is an 
honor to be trusted, and a privilege to be 
given the chance to develop trustworthi- 
ness. We should try the honor system at 


At long last, our new student 
union building is taking shape 
very rapidly. As a result of ex- 
tensive planning and labor on 
the part of the student body, 
great strides have been made 
both financially and structural- 


(Note:^The following tribute to STAMPEDE 
editor Lee Ernst has been prepared and published 
in this issue unknown to him.) 

This year has seen many improvements 
here at Milligan, and it has also seen the 
continuation of many activities which make 
our life more enjoyable and better informed. 
One of these activities has been the publica- 
tion of the STAMPEDE. It has come at dif- 
ferent times during the year to inform and 
entertain us, and to labor for the betterment 
of Milligan. 

The editor this year ha^ ueen Lee Ernst — 
as hard-working a "chief" as any paper 
could ask for. Lee was given the editorship 
quite a few weeks after school started, and 
he was also given the job of assembling a 
staff to aid in the work; for there was no 
carryover of any STAMPEDE organization 
from last year. There was also no scholar- 
ship given as in past years. But without 
the obligating power of a scholarship, and 
with the obstacles mentioned above, he pro- 
ceeded with the task. 

And what a task it has been! Lee has 
guided the issues from the first planning 
to the receiving of the printed copies from 
the hands of the printer. Any many times, 
we, the staff, have made that job doubly 
hard by our thousand and one excuses. 

But we. as that staff, and as representa- 
tives of the student body, wish at this time 
to say, "Thanks, Chief." for all your work — 
for the ceaseless thought and the midnight 
hours which vou have given to make the 
STAMPEDE a' success. 


I would like to take this op- 
portunity to express my appre- 
ciation to each and every person 
who has contributed in any way 
toward the attainment of this 
student union. For the past 
week we have had excellent co- 
operation from most of the stu- 
dents, which really broadcasts 
their desire for this building. 
Thanks for pitching in and help- 
ing us out in a pinch- 

During the time from now un- 
til the end of school, we are 
going to be mighty busy over in 
the "hole." and we certainly 
could use all of the manpower 
that can be mustered. With 
good luck, we should have a 
major portion of the building 

up by graduation. To do this, 
each of us must give freely of 
our time and knowledge and 
most of all. each of us must take 
it upon ourself to "SELL" this 
building to everyone with whom 
we come in contact. We need 
considerable additional funds to 
finish the building, and to ob- 
tain this we must take it upon 
ourselves to contact as many 
people as possible. 

As to the building itself, I 
would Hke to state that every 
effort is being made to make 
this student union the type of 
building that you. as students, 
want. We are attempting to take 
advantage of every inch of floor 
space and it is our hope that 
every group on the campus may 
be attracted to the building in 
some way. Please feel free at 
any time to ask questions or to 
give suggestions. This is your 
building, and we want you to 
have a full share in making it 
one of which you will be proud. 
Won't you give of your time. 
your talents, and your initiative 
in order to insure the success of 
the student union?? 

P. S. I would like also to take 
this opportunity to thank the 
Stamptede staff for their excel- 
lent efforts in printing the EX- 
TRA covering the student union 
project. Thanks for a job well 
done! Also the committees re- 
sponsible for the affairs of the 
project have done a tremendous 
job. and they should be com- 
mended for their time and ef- 
forts and contributing to the 
new student union building. 
Keep up the good work!!

Vacation Again! See 
You In September! 

My congratulations to you. 
Students of Milligan. upon the 
completion of a successful year. 

Your courtesy, good fellow- 
ship, hard work and loyalty to 
Milligan College in a most dif- 
ficult time, have made the Ad- 
ministration r e s p n s ibilities 
light. I appreciate this more than 
I can tell you. 

We are on the up-grade at 
Milligan, in quality of work, 
quality of student body, effi- 
ciency of faculty, loyalty of 
alumni and interest of friends. 
For all this we are profoundly 

Enjoy your vacation. Make it 
count in recreation. Make it 
count in assimilation of what 
you have learned this year. Make 
it count in preparation for your 
return in the fall. 

Bring another student back 
with you. That is the best serv- 
ice you individually can render 
Milligan just now. Pick out a 
good one. Tell him what you 

have gained at Milhgan. Ex- 
plain to him the prospect for 
next year. Let him see in you 
something of the Milligan spirit. 

Milhgan is on the up-grade. 
Up-grades require steam to 
move along. Add yours and 
watch us go! 

Drop me a line during the 
summer, telling what you are 
doing and about your plans for 
the future. 

Would it not be a fine thing 
to have our opening reception 
in the fall in the new student 
building? Remember that only 
vour persevering work will 
make that possible. 

So. Mrs. Walker and I togeth- 
er wish you a very happy vaca- 
tion. Will you convey our greet- 
ings to the folk back home? 

See you in September! 

Dean E Walker. President. 


This issue of the paper closes 
the 1950-1951 files of the STAM- 
PEDE. With a sigh of rehef and 
yet one of regret, we place this 
final edition in your hands. 

It has been our constant ob- 
jective throughout the year to 
publish a STAMPEDE chucked 
full of reading pleasure, one 
that you could say was truly a 
representative voice of the stu- 
dent body and worthy of the 
best Milligan traditions. 

We wish to extend our sin- 
cere thanks and express our ap- 
preciation to all who helped in 
any way in producing a pubhca- 
tion that we hope you can say 
was a STAMPEDE of. by. and 
for the students.

Every day people are making 
statements that they call facts. 
Here we have a few facts about 
the students and teachers at 
MilligEm College. 

It's a fact that we have eaten 
exactly 153.600 shces of bread 
and exactly 706.200 beans in the 
cafeteria so far this year. Won- 
der what it will be by the end 
of the school year? It's a fact 
that Miss M>-natt breaks a bat 
everj- time she's up and that 
Mrs. Brown is always late for 
class. It's a fact that Norma 
Spangler doesn't know if she's 
engaged or not; it's also a fact 
that Bill and Lydia reset their 
wedding date after argument. 
So many calls have been made 
between Hardin and Pardee 
Hall that the telephone com- 
pany has threatened to take out 
the phone. And that is a fact. 
Bob Rhea is a good guy but it's 
a fact that he had not been able 
to answer all the questions ask- 
ed by students in Botany class. 
Bob, have all the questions been 
about Botany? 

Here are also a few more 
facts: you may use Skip Mar- 
tin's car at any time. Just ask 
him; Quin eats hot dogs as fast 
as Mrs. Shepherd can fix them; 
Dave Brooks is always late for 
Botany class; Dr. Walker loves 
to make trips to see the coun- 
tr>*side; Grant Layman has 
stacked Rook cards at least 9.999 
times; Sall>' Bonner and Becky 
Shortridge have had too many 
fights with Tom Archibald to 
count; Everett Smock al- 
ways has car trouble in Corbin. 
Kontuckj'; Mr. Edwards won 
first place for catty remarks 
and Dave Crandall won second 
place; Cayita Pagan always 
throws things when she gets 
mad; Miss Smith never turns 
red in class; it's a fact that so 
mnny books have been overdue 
that Annleah hasn't enough fin- 
gers and toes to count them on. 
These are just a tew of the facts; 
but it's all a facL

The Spanish Club, one of the 
most active groups on the cam- 
pus, sponsored an outing for the 
entire student body on May 17, 
■at the Optimist Club. About 35 
students joined in the activities, 
planned by Jean Ball. Nathan 
Hale, and Qum Segarra. which 
consisted chiefly of baseball. 
Steak sandwiches made a hit 
that was rivaled in popularity 
only by some impromptu croon- 
ing by Don Gonzales, a student 
at State College. 

The club members took time 
out to elect officers for next 
year. Peggy Young will be

Once again the Miiligan Col- 
lege Players will do their share 
toward making the weekend of 
commencement both pleasant 
and memorable, for both stu- 
dents and visitors alike, through 
the presentation of a three-act 
play, on the night of June 2. in 
the college auditorium. The 
play. "Icebound." written by 
Owen Davis, is a true-to-life 
story of the Jordan family and 
the in-laws, who are all selfishly 
waiting for the death of the 
wealthy Mrs. Jordan. 

The cast includes Mildred 
Fritts, David Crandall, Connie 
Hutchinson. Edith Baker. Mar- 
shall Legett. Paul Conkin, Jean 
Ball, Becky Shortridge, Everet 
Shock. Jack Pierce, Irene Par- 
ker, and Thomas Hawes. 

Jean Fritts, president of the 
club, is assisting Prof. Arthur 
Edwards in directing the pro- 
duction, which, with such a tal- 
ented cast, promises to provide 
an evening of truly good enter- 
tainment, as well as a message 
that is valuable in these times 
of greed and selfishness. 

Early in the year the "Stampede" conducted a fecial balloting to determine the two most out- 
standing students in each class. The Senior selections, Elnora Holbrook and Marshall Leggett,

Echoes From The 
North American

Several of the faculty and 
students attended the North 
American Christian Convention 
held April 25-29 in Springfield, 
Illinois. Many of those attend- 
ing participated in the program.

about colleges during a panel 
discussion on "Educational Work

The theme for the 12th NACC 
was "The Church Against the 
World." The addresses, given 
by ministers from all over the 
United States, were based on 
this idea. It was shown through 
these messages that the Church 
is against the world. 

Joseph Dampier, minister of 
First Christian Church in John- 
son City was president for this 
year. Next year's session at Tul- 
sa, Oklahoma, will be presided 
over by Ernest E. Laughlin, 
minister of West Side Church

The highlight of the conven- 
tion for those attending from 
here was the Miiligan College 
banquet held Friday night at the 
Abraham Lincoln Hotel. Facul-

H. F. York. Prof, and Mrs. Ar-

ger. Bill Radspirmer, Shirley 
DeArmond. Virginia Snyder and 
Gertrude Archer — were also 
there. Burton Thurston, minis- 
ter of Englewood Church in 
Chicago was the speaker. 

Mrs. Hedger was in charge of 
the college booth. Through this 
display many valuable contacts 
were made and several new stu- 
dents will be coming to Miili- 
gan next year.

story proceeds to the place 
where pioneer men and women 
push their way over the Appa- 
lachian Mountains in search of 
more and better land, and the 
Indians are replaced by women 
in calico bonnets and long 
dresses and strong, tanned men

THANKS, BUT . . . 

Suggestions in this year's editorials have been taken 
up in a fine way, in a spirit which seems to be exemplary of 
the student body this year. 

The suggestion was made that a trophy case be in- 
stalled — the Spanish Club financed the installation of a 
beautiful one in the lobby of the Administration, building. 
It was suggested that new nets be purchased for the pres- 
ent tennis season — this, too, was soon accomplished. 

For this splendid cooperation, we wish to say, 
"Thanks." However, at the same time, we propose the ques- 
tion, "What is being done about basketball?" This was 
thoroughly covered in an earlier issue, but it must be em- 
phasized and not forgotten. 

All concerned with Milligan College must realize that 
basketball will be an essential factor in school activities 
since footbaJ has been discontinued. Opportunity is offered 
now to send Milligan to the top in small college circles and 
by the same move fill that new trophy case. Now is the 
time to forge oui* way upward. 

There are two necessary factors in this progression: 
(1) that a coach be hired who specializes in basketball and 
has shown the ability to turn ouf winning teams; (2) that 
the cream of the high school talent be brought to Milligan, 
for the Buffs must build for the future almost from the 
bottom. This last plan is made possible by the fact that 
thousands of dollars formerly used out of the athletic fund 
for football scholarships may now be turned toward bas- 

There may be those who axe opposed to this plan, but 
they should be reminded of one thing. Intercollegiate ath- 
letics are now big business; not that this is right and just, 
but that we are forced to follow that plan if we are to field 
even a respectable team. 

We offer sincere thanks once again, and hope that this 
last suggestion be used as the previous ones have. 

Let's put basketball trophies in that case next year"

Trophy Case Installed 
By Spanish Club 

A long*needod trophy case has 
finally found its home In the 
south wall of the lobby of the 
Administration Building. The 
case was presented to the col- 
lege by the Club Pan Ameri- 
cana, the school's Spanish Club. 

The club had held' the project 
in view from last September but 
was not then financially able to 
undertake the project. How- 
ever, they continued working to 
acquire the necessary funds, 
both by selling the plastic 
cushions and pins at the football 
games, and by the collection of 
club dues. 

Due to an editorial in Febru- 
ary denouncing the lack of a 
trophy case, the club was given 
added incentive to complete 
their project. At that time their 
action on the project was an- 
nounced, and the money for the 
materials was found to be on 
hand. The materials were pur- 
chased and the case was install- 
ed by the able hand of Mr. Mc- 
Cracken, Supt. of Grounds and 

The club plans next year to 
place a bronze plaque at the 
base of the case to state the 
presentation of the case by the 
club. They are also assuming 
the responsibility of keeping

Building Together 

"Rat liVeek" is novf ofiicially over. The freshmen 
have been duly initiated and are novf coraplete ineiTibers 
of the I'.'iilligan faitily. The entire body of students 
and faculty can novj work together as a unit in the 
interest of Christ fii'st of all, and , secondly, in the 
interest of the college. Our student body this year is 
manifesting an even greater regard foi- the things of the 
Spirit than ■'.vas shorni last year. This is demonstrated by 
the increased number of students participating in gospel 
teams and by a greater proportion of the stuaents attend- 
ing church on Sunday, 

\ie now have two professors who open their classes in 
vrSijer, These /nen are to be cojmnended. This seems like 
such a little thing, yet it means a great deal both to 
teachers and students to unite in prayer before the class 
begins. There should be no difference betvreen classes in 
religion and the rest of the classes in this regard. 

Let us in this school year strive to create an atmos- 
phere that will bring out the best in everyone. This • 
matter is directly in the hands of the students and 
faculty.. This can be the best year that Lilligan has seen. 
'Ue have the quality of students and faculty needed for such 
a venture. How it's full speed ahead for each individual 
interested in making J«iilligan one of the oest Christian 
schools in our countr--.

Solicitation cOi-.-ur.ittee, 
v;hich includes: Frank 
Hannah, chai-lman; Ruth 
Brovm, Becky Harris, Jer- 
r:,' Lindel and Don Taylor 
have made tentative plans 
tov/ard supplimenting the 
.$7,500 raised by students 
of Liilligan last year 
vdth another seven fr- 
eight thousand. 

Plans are being made 
for 5,000 letters to be 
sent out, each viith a pic- 
ture of the Student Union 
Building as it nov/ standg 
making a strong appeal 
f-..r a donation of $1.00. 
Each letter v/ill contain 
a stamped self-addressed 
envelope for the facility 
of the donator. The re- 
cent campaigne wbdch was 
conductod in Elizabethton 
vir's successful in col- 
lecting $72.00 in compar- 
with the |;7[i.00 rais- 
ed last year in Johnson 

It is the earnest 
hope of the students of 
Hilligan that the restau- 
rant part be finished by 
ChristEas vacation after 
v/hich the building's in- 
torior can be finished by 
the end of the school 

The Student Council 
and Soliciting Committee 
wish to thank the fresh- 
men class for its zealous 
endeavor and support to- 
v/ard the building. It is 
our hope that this zeal 
vri.ll not depart'frcm them 
until the building is conj- 
I leted and that the other 
Ailligan students v;ill 
follov,- their example. 

Christ never asks us to 
give up merely for the 
sake of giving up, but 
always in order to ^vin 
something better,

Last spring two of our Milligan students conceived 
the idea of constructing a much-needed Student Union 
Building. They willed to build, y/e, as a student body, 
promised our utmost assistance and pledged ourselves to 
any effort vdiich would be needed to execute such a pl^n. 
"/.■e also v/illed to build. 

The fact that we have succeeded in erecting the 
exterior of the edifice should alleviate any discourage- 
ment which we may feel. Te knov; that some day there v/ill 
be a Student Union Building at the place v/here Dr, 'A'alkt;r 
turned over the first shovelful of ground. It is just 
a question of v/hen. If the student body were now as en- 
thusi'istic about the project as they were last spring, 
it would only be a matter of a few months before v;e would 
be enjoying the advantages of the new structure, .'.here 
is the zeal -ihat was manifested at the outset of this 
undertaking? ';,e do have the power to see this through, 
but we must retain our will to build. If we are tired 
of hearing about the work that is yet ahead of us, we can 
put our shoulders to the plow v;ith the idea of finishing 
the job in short order as quickly as possible, this is 
our job. Let's show the faculty and the surrounding 
area that we can see it throughi 

The Student Council has graciously takun over this 
project, but they can't do it by themselves. They can 
organize, but v;ithout the support of every member of the 
student body, our Student Union will remain in the far

tjie students and given to 
everyone who contributed to 
the Student Union lund. A 
booth v.'as put up on .Viain St. 

morning until 6:00 in the 
evening, there were groups 
working. By 3:00 in the 
afternoon, the majority of 
people in Johnson City were 
wearing tags. The total a- 
mount collected was $132.12 
which was double of what 
was made last year on our 
day of solicitation in John-

their victory. Governor 
' Kief t declared a public 
Thanksgiving in February 
of I6I4I1, 

Thwre are recorded 
instances of the pre-Rcv- 
olutionarj' colonies de- 
claring Thanksgiving hol- 
idays. During the Revolu- 
tion, the Continental 
Congress set aside eight 
days during the vrar as 
days cf Thanksgiving for 
fhe battles won, George 
Washington first declared 
it a legal holidaj^ in 
1789, setting the date as- 
Ncvember 26. So, you 
see, the Pilgrims are not 
the ■"'nly r^rj.ginators of 
our observance of Thanks- 

Traditionally, v;hen 
vre think of thanksgiving, 
we are automatically re- 
minded of the Pilgrims 
who came over on the May- 
flov;er and celebrated the 
"first" Thanksgiving in 
1621. Actually the idea 
v'as not original v;ith 
them, nor was it institu- 
ted as a national holiday 
merely beacase of their 
celebration. The children 
of Israel were commanded 
to keep a feast of the 
harvest which was on the 
same order as our Thanks- 
giving in that it was 
celebrated to thank God 
for a bountiful harvest. 

From 1621 to I63I, 
there were ro T hanksgtring 
celebrations in America by 
the Pilgrims or other 
groups. In the latter 
year mentioned, the Efess- 
acbusetts Bay Colony suf- 
:fered a hard winter. 
There was little food and 
their number was being 
decreased by disease. Due 
to these conditions, the 
people berated their lead- 
er and befame very pessL-H- 
istic tov/ard the life 
vjhich they were living. 
The leader of the colony 
rebuked the people for 
their attitude, reminding 
them that they were in 
a land v/hich God had shown 
them and therefore had no 
reason to whimper because 
of their hungar. Ke de- 
clared that because of 
their lack of grateful- 
ness, they would be made 
to suffer severe hungar 
and would be forbidden to 
complain. A day of fast 
r/as decreed; but before 
that day arrived, a ship 
from England came into 
the port loaded v/ith sup- 
plies. The result was a 
great thanksgiving fe-.'.t. 
Thirteen years later the 
Dutch people in New Am- 
sterdam were being molest- 
ed by Indians and found 
it expedient to flrrbt. 
them. In thankfulness of

(lith the possible exception of favreden, America 
is the most prosperous nation in the viorld today, 
kie live in a land which is rich in natural resources 
and which contains a vast number of industries. Ir- 
respective of VJhere one stands on the social scale, 
he has a right to demand an education, -tor the av- 
erage American, the road of life affords a fevr jolts 
and jars; but tl;ey are nothing coiupared to those on 
the road which people in many countries have to tra- 
vel, ^.iaybe this is the reason that Americans have 
become an ungrateful variety of homo sapiens o 

lr»e need only to look about us to be convinced 
of the fact that God truly has shed His grace upon 
America. How tired He must become with the many 
cynics and pessimists v/ho walk about in our fair 
land today - people who simply would not be happy 
being happy - people who have such few inner resour- 
ces that they are not moved by the many beautiful 
things which we term the "better things in life." 
It ought to make us humble to look off across a 
clear blue sky, but a stormy sky offers beauty also. 
Sorrows, disappointments, broken hearts, these are 
all part of a full life as well as , enjoyment, plea- 
sures, and satisfaction. If we were to oalctilate 
the ratio of satisfaction to sorrow, \(e would find 
that the former would far exceed the latter. 

As we sit down to our Thanksgiving dinner, may 
we not be guilty of thanking Dod for bread alone, 
but may v,-e also be thankful for every ".vord of God - 
for the v.'ord by i;hich He created us - for the word 
which brought the mountains, lakes, and forests into 
being - for the words of God which we call Scripture 
and the promises contained therein- and most of all, 
for the supreme nord, even Jesus, whom God has made 
both Lord and Christ.

ViC at :.illi^:an have a liVirary which conparcs 
favorably in rct;aru to number of sch(Si?2.s 
tv.lce our size. Aside from tho fact that we are 
si: rhtly lackinf in sh.lf space, we have a library 
of v;hich to p., proud. The only difficulty is that 
y*en som..;one fjocs to the library to avail hins^-lf of 
a book for a sp.:cific assignment, ho often finds him- 
self utt„rly unablvj to secure the i;riportant volune 
for which he is s .archint;, ospi-cially if that book 
happens to havj been placed on res^.;rve. 

The reasons for the existence of such a situatbn 
is threefold. First, there are s..--eral folk" 
who feul that since ";illi£an Coll.:,:;e only has an 


enrollment of four or students, they 
justified in keeping r„s^rve books until th^,.;. 
weeks and even nonths over:iuo. Secondly, books have 
cto.yelopcd a habit of runnint av.'ay vifch bheir cards 
still in th.iT?.. Tho last reason is that, -sSace 
each class has only one student enrolled, that one 
student cones into the librarj' and checks out all 
of the resurved books on the sh-jlf for that particu- 
lar cl-:iss, Kovfever, there are sorie two hundred 
students at ..illigan, books cannot walk out of the 
library by their own noti\ation, an--? no nlas^- -n +h 
one student : s in cxirtixnce, % ^ 

May we rerrdnd th' o,, self-satisfie'"! individuals 
that the librar;>/ vdll p:Ver bacc'ina efficient to the 
end tJiat ev .ryone can havc acci :r to t;-. ■ beck which 

he ncods until 

they r^jllnquish tl..;ir al-solute

A floW'.r unblown; a book unread 
A tree with fruit urx.arvested; 
A path unti'odj a house v;h.ose rooms

World Economic 
Stability Hinges 
On U. S. Policies 

NEW YORK— The economic 
stability of the rest of the world 
now hinges on United States 
policies as never before. This is 
one of the points stressed by 
the Research and Policy Com- 
mittee of the Committee for 
Economic Development in its 
recent long-range analysis The 
Threat to Our National Security. 

In a comprehensive study de- 
signed "to suggest how to think 
about" the problems likely to 
be faced by the American peo- 
ple and their allies in the face 
of Russian moves in the next 
few years, the committee says: 

"American economic power 
and the world's economic inter- 
dependence are now so great 
that our domestic policies have 
an enormous impact, intended 
or unintended, on other coun- 
"Precariously Balanced' 

"The stability or instability of 
employment and prices in the 
United States is a major factor 
in the economic health or sick- 
ness of many other countries. To 
the domestic consequences of

The Spirit Of 
MUligan Continues 

Any college which contributes 
richly to those who choose to 
become a part of her spiritual 
and traditional heritage is per- 
mitted to make her precious 
gifts out of her own storehouse 

Nevertheless, this source of 
valuable benefits can not bo re- 
plenished sufficiently to provide 
8 constantly-increasing bestowal 
unless those with whom the 
blessings are shored, in turn, 
contribute more than they re- 
ceive; unless each one strives to 
leave the school's resources 
richer than they were when he 

In this respect, however, the 
educational family at Milligan 
have, down through the years, 
realized that sharing one's self 
with others is a noble art, that 
living courageously is affiliated 
with living creatively in the 
midst of conditions many of 
which may be adverse. 

Moreover, the academic year 
of 1952-53 seems to be no ex- 
ceptipn at Milligan. for a well- 
balanced, cooperative spirit of 
optimism is activating the tra- 
ditional motivation that con- 
tinues to enable Milligan to 
cEirry on effectively in behalf of 
Christian education. 

And this is as it should be, 
for Milligan, located in the 
bosom of extravagant beauty 
here in East Tennessee, would 
find it difficult not to accept the 
help of nature in assisting her 
to maintain her noble purpose 
which has to do with serving 
those who constantly look to 
her for choice gifts with which 
they delight to enhance their 
lives of consecration and ser- 


Founder's Day 

The second annual Founder's 
Day will be celebrated here on 
Saturday. November 1, 1952. 
This occasion was brought about 
when Milligan no longer had 
Homecoming for the football 
season. This event gives the 
students a chance to choose a 
queen, in the person of a 
Founder's Daughter, and the 
alumni a chance for a home- 
coming themselves. 

Classes will continue in the 
morning as usual and the board 
will have their annual meeting. 
The afternoon will consist of an 
mformal tea at 4:00 In Hardin 
parlors. The students and alumni 
will be recalling their days 
spent at their old Alma Mater. 
Also the Intramural Council 
has some play-off games sched- 
uled for the interest of every- 

Open House will be held in 
each of the three dormitories 
from 1:00 to 5;00 p.m. Students 
selected by the dormitory coun- 
cils will be on hand to act as 
hosts or hostesses in their re- 
spective dormitories. 

The night is the highlight of 
the occasiorL A banquet will be 
served in the Student Union 
Building. This is the second 
such event held in our unfin- 
ished building as the alunmi 
dinner of 1952 was held there 
last May. At this banquet will 
be presented the candidates for 
Founder's Daughter. Each per-

Meet The Bajkos 


Just in case you haven't met 
Adela and Paul Bajko. I would 
like to introduce them to you. 
They are two of the nicest peo- 
ple you'll ever know. 

The Bajkos are from Poland, 
but they met and became en- 
gaged in a Displaced Persons 
camp in West Germany. Adela 
left Germany and went to Eng- 
land where Paul was supposed 
to meet her. but somehow their 
plans didn't work out. She fin- 
ally went to Canada and Paul 
to the United States. This was 
still quite a distance for two 
people in love, but Paul settled 
it by going to Canada. They 
were married in Toronto on 
June 16, 1951. 

When I talked with them the 
other day, I was interested in 
finding out what they thought 
of American hot dogs, ham- 
burgers, and chewing gum. Paul 
told me that the first time he 
saw gum was when the Ameri- 
can soldiers came to Europe. 
He thought they looked like 
cows — all the time chewing, 
(Adela tells me that Paul has 
now acquired the habit him- 
self.) Hot dogs were also new 
to the Bajkos. They couldn't 
imagine anyone "burning up a 
dog." but after eating one they 
decided that hot dogs were O. K. 
Paul was astonished when first 
asked if he.wanted a hamburger. 
To him. Hamburg was only a 
city in Germany. 

When Paul was only 15 years 
old, the Nazis took him to work 
as a forced laborer in their fac- 
tories That was the last time 
he ever saw his family. His 
father was a minister of the 
Church of Christ in Poland, but 
Paul has had no word from him 
and fears he may be dead. 

In Europe students can't work 
and go to school as they do here 
because they have five or six 
hours of required work that 
they must take. All of the Uni- 
versities in Poland are State 
Universities. There are 6 years 
of public school and 6 years of 
high school over there. You must 
take an exam to enter and on- 
other to leave high school. 

Sports are- a little different in 
Europe than they are here in 
the U. S.. hut volleyball, bos- 
kctball, ond footballs are favor- 
ites there also. They do not play 
baseball, but a game called "pa- 
lant" takes its place. It is played 
with a bat that is smaller and 
flatter than a baseball bat. 

Christmas in Poland is much 
the same as it is here. On the 
day before Christmas the chil- 
dren begin watching for the 
first star of the evening. When 
it is spotted, all work stops and 
the family gathers together for 
n big Christmas Eve supper. 
The Catholics put straw under 
their tables to signify the man- 
ger in which Chrbt was bom. 

Professor Stuckenbruck met 
Paul in Germany in Januar>- of 
1950. He recommended him to 
the Elastem Christian Institute 
in Orange. New Jersey. After 
taking work there. Paul came

Donald G. Sahli 

Academic Dean 

Dr. Sahli hails from North 
Lima, Ohio, where he received 
his pubbc school education. He 
attended Goshen College in 
Goshen, Indiana, for two years 
and transferred to Ohio State 
University where he received 
the A. B.. M. A-. and Ph. D. de- 
grees. Dean Sahli taught his- 
tory and mathematics at Perry 
High School, Perry, Ohio for six 
years and was superintendent 
of schools in Madison, Ohio for 
two years. He taught history at 
Ohio State University while 
working on his graduate de- 
grees. He is married and has 
three daughters. His broad ex- 
perience and background have 
equipped him for the place of 
leadership which he holds in the 
community. He is a member of 
the Phi Alpha Theta and Phi 
Delta Kappa fraternities, the 
Near East Historical Associa- 
tion, and the Masonic lodge. He 
has been honored by inclusion 
in Who'i Who Among Educa- 
tors, Who's Who In The South 
and South-West and The Di- 
rector of American Scholars. 

At the present time he is the 
president of the Civitan Club in 
Johnson City and an elder of 
Hopwood Memorial Christian 
Church. Dean Sahli came to 
Milligan in 1948 and served as 
acting president prior to the 
inauguration of President Wal- 
Gene Click. 

Earl Stuckenbruck 

Professor of German 
Professor Earl Stuckenbruck 
was bom at Lake City. Iowa and 
received his high school educa- 
tion at Wichita, Kansas. He re- 
ceived the A. B. degree from 
Kansas University and the B. D. 
& M. A. degrees from Butler 
University. Mr. Stuckenbruck 
continued his studies in Europe, 
while working with the Euro- 
pean Evangelistic Society, by 
working toward his doctorate at 
Birmingham University, Bir- 
mingham. England. Overdale 
College, and Basel University in 
Switzerland. He worked to- 
wards the cstablishmerit of a 
school for the training of 
Christian preachers in Tubingen, 
Germany and attended Tubin- 
gen University while there. He 
and his family returned to the 
states in December of 1950. and 
they came to Milligan In 1951 
where Mr. Stuckenbruck has 
taught German language classes, 
and philosophy, and assisted 
President Walker in his semi- 
nar. Mr. Stuckenbruck was or- 
dained to the ministry at To- 
peka, Kansas in 1941 by his 
father. He was married in 1944 
and has two children. Earl and 
Jane. Earl will never be able to 
be president, because he was 
born in Germany. 

He and his family plan to re- 
turn to Germany in the near fu- 


To the freshmen and new 
students at Milligan the Student 
Union Building is something 
that is taken as a matter of 
course. But to the upperclass- 
men it represents a dream come 
true, full of the memory of 
hours spent soliciting money 
and doing the actual work. The 
date of the Founders' Day Ban- 
quet is approaching when the 
first event will be held in the 
Student Union, Therefore it is 
only appropriate that we review 
the events which led to making 
this possible. 

T, P Jones. Class of '51. and 
Randy Cooper. Class of '52, both 
of Radford. Virginia, had long 
recognized the need for a stu- 
dent union building on the Mil- 
ligan campus. They felt that it 
could be built at a very low 
cost if the students themselves 
would do the unskilled labor. 
Alter working zealously over 
the plans until they were suf- 
ficiently completed, they pre- 
sented them to President Wal- 
ker After he had studied them 
the plans were presented to the 
Board of Trustees for their ap- 
proval. When the Board had 
pledged its support to the pro- 
ject a faculty meeting was call- 
ed, and the decision of the Board 
was seconded. 

On the morning of March 20, 
1951, a special meeting of the 
Student Council was called. The 
proposal was placed before them 
and immediately approved. 
Within the next hour the pro- 
posal was made to the students 
in Chapel, and their instantane- 
ous response was all that was 
needed to get the work started. 
Immediately the students began 
making solicitations of money 
and building materials from 
Johnson City, Elizabelhton, 
alumni, and friends. Before the 
first month was over approxi- 
mately $5,000 had been obtained. 

On Monday, April 23, ground- 
breaking ceremonies took place 
at the building site. President 
Walker turned the first soil, 
and then the golden shovel was 
passed 'to Mr. Frank Hannah, 
Sr., President of the Board of 
Trustees. Dr. Donald G. Sahli. 
Academic Dean of the School, 
came next, followed by T. P. 
Jones and Randy Cooper, and 
the president of each class. Pro- 
fessor Sam Hyder, the oldest 
facult>- member from the view 
of years of teaching here and the 
only one who has seen all of the 
buildings constructed, concluded 
the ceremony. 

From then until now the storj" 
has been one of hard work on 
the* part of everj'one involved 
The students cleared the land, 
dug the basement, helped lay 
concrete blocks, and assisted In 
all of the million and one odds 
and ends that are continulaly 
needing to be done. Sometimes 
the work went fast, but more 
often than not it was slowed 
down due to the lack of funds.

World Economic 

(Continued From Page One) 
any serious depression or infla- 
tion in the Umted States must 
now be added the effects upon 
the precariously balanced eco- 
nomies of other countries all 
around the world. 

"A depression here would 
close the American market for 
foreign goods more effectively 
than a high tariff. Inflation in 
the U- S. will raise the prices 
paid by many countries for es- 
sential imports, not only di- 
rectly from us but also in world 
markets. In either case the 
economic stability of foreign 
countries and their ability to 
maintain living standards and 
security programs would be 
'Vital to Stability, Seciirity' 

"The present world sitixation 
therefore makes even more im- 
portant what should in any case 
be the objectives of United 
States domestic economic policy. 
We must keep the United States 
economy free, dynamic and 
reasonably stable. This has now 
become vital to the stability and 
security of the whole non-com- 
munist world. 

"It is essential not only to 
maintain reasonable economic 
stability in the United States 
but also, so far as possible, to 
create confidence that stability 
will be mamtained. Fear of 
American economic instability 
IS an obstacle to the closer eco- 
nomic and pohticai association 
of the non-communist countries. 
And the behef that capitalist 
societies are inherently and vio- 
lently unstable has been a main 
point of communist propaganda. 
Of course, absolute stability is 
not to be expected in a free, 
dynamic society. But reason- 
able stability is achievable and 
would be a major gain, 

"The threat to our security, 
and the measures we must take 
to meet it, make the objectives 
of a free, stable and growing 
economy more difficult to 
achieve. Large budgets, for ex- 
ample, create a danger of in- 
flation. Taxes to finance these 
budgets may impede economic 
growth- And a general con- 
sciousness of danger leads to 
the acceptance of crisis meas- 
ures, freedom-restricting meas- 

ures, for meeting problems that 
m a more normal atmosphere 
would be met in other ways. 
Problemt Can Be Met 

"These are real difficulties, 
but they are not insuperable. 
Unless security programs far 
exceed the amounts now plan- 
ned, or unless the mtemational 
situation deteriorates seriously, 
we believe that sound pubhc 
policy and responsible private 
action can overcome these dif- 

"In the past ten years CED 
has issued many pohcy state- 
ments on aspects of this prob- 
lem. These statements empha- 
size the importance of ngorous 
control of governmental expen- 
ditures, the adoption of fiscal, 
monetary and credit policies to 
help offset tendencies toward 
inflation and depression, to en- 
courage investment and streng- 
then incentives to increase out- 
put; avoidance of direct gov- 
ernment control over prices and 
wages except in extreme emer- 
gency; and self-restraint by or- 
ganized political and economic 
groups m pressing their de- 
mands upon the national econ- 


The first number in the 1952- 
53 Milligan College lecture and 
concert series will be a delight- 
fully staged concert by the 
Knowles Duo. This team con- 
sisting of Adriana Knowles, 
mezzo soprano, and Paul 
Knowles, tenor, features cos- 
tumed scenes from the world's 
most popular operas, operettas 
and musical comedies. The con- 
cert will be held m the MiUigan 
College auditorium at 8:00 p.m., 
on Monday, November 3. 

This will be the first in a se- 
ries which will include the pre- 
sentation of 'The Late Christo- 
pher Bean," by the Barter The- 
atre, a lecture by General 
Brougher, dramatic -scenes por- 
trayed by .Hal and Ruby Hol- 
brook and concerts by Lloyd La 
Vaux, accordianist, and Lillian 
Kallir, pianist. 

An increasmg number of peo- 
ple of East Tennessee have been 
sharing the enjoyment of the tal- 
ent brought by these Milligan 
College series. The Knowles con- 
cert will be open to the public. 

(Better KnowTi A» The Draft) 

Major J. W. Donnell. U S.M.C.. 
visited the campus on October 
21 and spoke to an assembly of 
students concerning the new 
officer training program for col- 
lege students- Draft deferment 
is given to those who partici- 
pate in the program. 

The present policy of the Se- 
lective Service is to grant defer- 
ment to college students who 
place in the upper-half of the 
male population of the fresh- 
man class academically, and per- 
mit them to enroll for their sec- 
ond year in college. Their de- 
ferment continues if they place 
in the upper two-thirds of the 
male population of the sopho- 
more class. Also m the junior 
year it is slacked to the upper 
three-fourths of the male popu- 
lation of the class. Semors de- 
siring to attend graduate school 
will be deferred if they were 
in the upper half of the male 
population of the graduating 
class. This, however, does not 
mean that the local board must 
observe this policy. According 
to Milligan's academic dean, 
the experience has been that 
local boards do grant defer- 
ments with a negligible number 
of exceptions. 

The Selective Service has 
launched a testing program de- 
signed to test the relative quali- 
fications of registrants for col- 
lege study and their aptitude for 
continued college work- The test 
is called the Selective Service 
college qualification test and 
will be given December 4, 1952 
and April 23, 1953, In order to 
take the test, a man must be reg- 
istered with Selective Service, 
must be pursuing a full-time col- 
lege course (15 hours at Milli- 
gan). and must not previously 
have taken the test. Applica- 
tion blanks are available at any 
local Selective Service board. 
The test lasts for three hours 
and the score is sent to the local 
board having jurisdiction of the 
examineje. The test is not com- 
pulsory, but is designed to give 
the local board more evidence 
upon which to base decisions.

able in Dean Sahli's office.

Adela is from Lodz. Poland 
and Paul is from Pinsk. They 
plan to stay here in the States 
until they, get their American 
citizenship, and then (when the 
iron curtain is lifted) they want 
to go back to Europe as mis- 
sionaries to their own people. 

There is one other member 
of the family that you haven't 
met. She is a very pretty baby 
girl named Yvonne (or Iwonna 
in Polish) and she was bom in 
Toronto on May 23. 1952. 

Wo feel that we are very for- 
tunate in having the Bajkos 
with us at Milligan this year. 
If you haven't gotten acquainted 
with them, go over to their 
apartment and have a chat with 
them. You can talk in any one 
of the five languages that they 
speak so fluently. I am sure 
that you will find them as 
charming and friendly as I did. 
and I used plain old English. 


Those noises coming from the 
auditorium around 1 1 :30 these 
days are nothing about which 
to get alarmed. It is only the 
new choir learning some of the 
music it will be using this year. 
Miss White was tickled pink 
■ over the huge response she had 
for choir members this semes- 
ter. Sixty-seven students sign- 
ed up for choir, but that num- 
ber has been narrowed down to 
fifty-seven. When tour time 
rolls around a trailer may have 
to be hooked on to the bus in 
order to get everyone on board, 
but right now things are look- 
ing good for the '52-"53 edition 
of the Milligan College Choir. 

The first big programs ahead 
of the choir will be the Christ- 
mas pageant here in our own 
auditorium, a program at the 
Veterans Administration, and 
another at the East Unaka 
church in Johnson City. 

A girls' sextette and two 
quartets have been organized 
this year. You will be hearing 
more from them later. 


The annual staff meets each 
Wednesday at 3:30 in Room 108. 
All members of the staff are 
urged to be present at each 
meeting, for plans for the "53 
annual are being completed, and 
the help of each person is 

The staff also requests that 
you put your snapshots in the 
box across from the Registrar's 
office or give them to Miss

soon as possible. 

TO THE d. (L's? 


1 think by this time ever>- 
member of the Student Council 
is knowTi to the students, but 
just to let you in on everything. 
I will give you some more in- 
formation about each class rep- 

This organization was formed 
to promote better relationship 
between faculty and students 
Through this group the faculty 
may leam of the students' prob- 
lems and interests. 

The Student Council is led by 
a senior physical education 
major from Lambsburg, Vir- 
ginia, Tom Hawks. Another sen- 
ior from that town is Randolph 
"Red" Lyons, who is also major- 
ing in physical education. Gene 
Click from Morehaven, Florida, 
is a senior whose major is re- 
ligion. Jean Ball, physical edu- 
cation major from High Point. 
North Carolina, and Kitty Rae 
Irvin, religion major from Avis, 
Pennsylvania, are the two senior 
girls on the council. 

Like the senior class, the jun- 
iors have two boys and two girls 
on the Council Bill Thomas 
from Scranton. Pennsylvania 
and Tom "Doc" Hawes from 
Columbus. Indiana, are repre- 
sentatives majoring in religion 
and physical education respec- 
tively. Sally Bonner, Paines- 
ville, Ohio, and Gert Archer. St 
Joseph. Illinois, are juniors 
whose majors are elementary 

The sophomores and freshmen 
have two representatives on the 
CouncU. Margaret Jane Smith- 
son, Bristol. Tennessee, is a 
sophomore whose major is busi- 
ness administration and Bill 
Mahan, a business administra- 
tion major from Appalachia, 
Virginia, are members of the 
Student Council. 

Two new students to the 
campus are the freshmen rep- 
resentatives. Jerry Wagner, 
whose major is religion is from 
Canton, Ohio, and Katie Col- 
bert is majoring in music and ii 
from Fairfield, Illinois. In case 


The library is being changed 
around a bit, so as to make the 
books more accessible for the 
students. All the t>ooks that 
formerly had been in the stack 
room have been put into the 
southwest room on the shelves 
and stacks there. It had been 
rather difficult for the students 
to find a book in the etack room 
up until this time. The maga- 
zines are also being sorted over 
and prepared for binding. 

Books of value that formerly 
have been out of circulation 
have been shelved again for use 
by the students. This makes the 
shelves rather full and every 
available space has been used- 
There are several boxes of books 
that various people have do- 
nated to the library that are 
still in storage because of lack 
of space. It is hoped that soon 
space will be found so that these 
books also can be put onto the 
shelves because of their useful- 
ness. That is one of the main 
purposes for this move. 

The job of moving the books 
is one that will take several 
weeks to finish and until that 
time the library may be found 
in somewhat of a mess. But 
when this has been accomplish- 
ed, then it is hoped to be one 
of the most pleasant places on 
the campus.

The Christian Service Club is 
off to a very fine start this 
year. The first business of the 
year was the organization of 
sixteen gospel teams which will 
take programs out to surround- 
ing churches, at their request. 
These teams are composed of 
five or six members each. The 
club's first act of Christian 
Service was the purchasing of 
a complete outfit for a needy 
second grade boy from Happy 

A series of programs is now 
underway for the Monday night 
meetings in which faculty mem- 
bers of the various departments 
bring their conception of the 
relation of their major field to 
the total work of the church. 
These have proved very helpful 
and most interesting. Ever>'- 
body and anybody is invited to 
meet with us and enjoy the 
many rich blessings which come 
from Christian fellowship. 


The first meeting of the Serv- 
ice Seekers was a candlelight 
installation service held in the 
Prayer Room. Miss Welshimer 
was the speaker, and after the 
meeting she entertained the 
girls with refreshments in the 
parlors of Hardin Hall. Mrs. Ed 
Wood was the speaker for the 
October meeting. 

Members of the Service Seek- 
ers are going to the Christian 
Home in Ellzabethton twice a 
month to help with the children 
there. Anyone wanting to go 
with them should see one of the 
officers of the club. 

The officers of the Service 
Seekers ace: 

President, Alice MacDonald; 
Vice-President. Arlene Seal; 
Secretary-Treasurer, Sue Dor- 

Club Panamericana got off to 
a good start with plans being 
made for a successful year. The 
first thing will be the annual 
party for the new members 
which will take place Monday, 
October 27. Other events will 
be a banquet, a Panamerican 
Day. and a joint meeting with 
"State." With the help of each 
and every member, the club 
should prove to be helpful and 
entertaining to those who take 

Jean Ball, a senior, is presi- 
dent of this club. 


The hobby club is for those 
who like to work with their 
hands. It is especially useful 
to those who are planning to be 
elementary school teachers and 
those who plan to work with 
youth groups o'f any kind. This 
year we have started tinting 
pictures and textile painting. 
We also plan to make rugs, 
wood - work, basket - weaving, 
figurine painting, and any oth- 
er crafts on which the members 
may wish to work. 

The hobby club is open to any 
person who might be interested 
in handicrafts. Meetings are 
held each Tuesday afternoon at 
Prof. Hyder's at 1:30 p.m. 

Arlene Seal, a junior from Mc- 
Keesport. Pa., is the president 
of this club. Arlene has many 
things that were a project of 
this club. If you would talk to 
her, I'm sure she could tell you 
of the advantage to learn crafts. 

The first meeting of the year 
was held in the Prayer Room 
on September 19. The president 
appointed Bill Dever to serve 
as the pulpit supply commit- 
tee. Amon McSwords to ser\'e 
as the membership committee, 
and Richard Carpenter to serve 
as the publicity committee. The 
third Tuesday of each month at 
C:30 p.m. was voted as the reg- 
ular monthly meeting time. The 
Constitution was read to the 
group and plans were made for 
the Installation Service for the 
new members.

The Pre-Med'Club is off to 
an exceptionally good start for 
what promises to be a busy and 
profitable year The club met 
on Sept. 18 for the purpose of 
organizing, and to meet the pros- 
pective new members. On Oct. 
2, Don Taylor, Grace Lambert. 
Bob Walther, Dick Koerber, Pat 
Ward. Dan Mayer and Anna 
Mae Price underwent Initiation 
into the club. 

On Oct, 20 the club met Joint- 
ly with the Hobby Club to elect 
Sue Jackson as candidate for 
Founder's Daughter, 

The second and fourth Thurs- 
day of every month has been 
secured as the club's meeting 
night. We hope to have inter- 
esting programs at these meet- 
ings including speakers and 
films (dealing with some phase 
of medicine) which all inter- 
ested students and faculty 
members will be welcome to at- 

The officers elected to serve 
the club this year are as fol-

Behind The * 
Sports Scene 

By "TUB" 

Well, all you Buffalo follow- 
ers, here is the start of a new 
school year. The leaves are fall- 
ing, the sky is blue and the 
clouds are white, so why don't 
all of us give that ol" Buffalo 
yell and start the year off right? 

Yes, I believe the year looks 
good for the sports minded per- 
sons. Just hop down to the 
football field about 4:30 on Mon- 
days. Wednesdays or Fridays. 
You will see good sports, playing 
good football. Even though they 
are playing only touch ball the 
game can get pretty rough, just 
ask Amon if you need proof. 

You may also see a good bas- 
ketball program at Cheek gym 
on Wednesdays and Fridays. 
There have been two games 
each night. One scheduled for 
6:30, another at 7:30. The fel- 
lows playing would surely like 
to have a big audience, so why 
not take time out from your 
studies and drop over? You can 
yell and have a big time. 

The intramural program is 
sponsored by th^ Physical Edu- 
cation Club. Leonard Gallimore, 
from Floyd, Virginia, is presi- 
dent of -this club. He, Tom 
Hawks and Bob Williams 
work together in the planning 
and setting up of this program. 

Tom. who is from Lambsburg. 
Virginia, is in charge of foot- 
ball. He planned the schedule. 
saw that there were referees to 
officiate the games and was on 
hand himself to straighten out 
any difficulties. 

Bob. a native of Radford, Vir- 
ginia, set up the basketball 
teams, scheduled the games and 
saw that there were referees to 
call the games. 

A new feature made its de- 
but on Tuesday evening, Octo- 
ber 14 on the campus. Under 
the leadership of Professor Ed- 
wards, head of the religion de- 
partment, twenty ministerial 
students met at Hopwood Me- 
morial Christian Church at 7:00 
p.m . to inaugurate a program 
which will be a regular weekly 
event. The purpose is to give 
the students the benefit of shar- 
ing in group discussions and 
criticisms of preaching. Three 
men are permitted to preach 
each session and pick a partner 
to read the Scripture for them. 
In this way it is hoped to im- 
prove the students' talents and 
develop self-criticism. The key- 
note sermon was preached by 
Glenn Barton of Wilkinson, In- 
diana. Jim Burgett of Green- 
wood, Ind.. and Rolond Nagle 
of Columbus, Ohio, completed 
the program. Max Harrison of 
Shell Creek, Tcnn , and John 
Worrell of Danville, Ind.. read 
the Scripture. Those attending 
were impressed with the quality 
of the preaching, and the three 


In case anyone has noticed 
the growth on Miss Marie 
Smith's 3rd finger of her left 
hand and is wondering about it. 
let us hasten to explain. The 
growth appeared this summer, 
and we have been assured that 
it is both serious and permanent. 
Authorities on the subject say 
that it stems from some kind of 
heart trouble. Miss Ruth White, 
another member of the faculty, 
is suffering from the same 

Mr. Gene Rentz. Spanish 
prof at Duke University, has 
studied the situation thorough- 
ly (being a very close friend of 
Miss Smith), and he tells us 
that he expects Miss Smith's 
ailment to get worse next sum- 
mer and another growth to ap- 
pear on the same finger. 

As Miss Smith has been an 
excellent teacher and a good 
friend to all of us, we will hate 
to see her leave MilHgan next' 
year, but we strongly advise 
that she get something done 
about that finger. 

The girls in Hardin and Cheek 
have been admiring Miss 
Smith's growth and wondering 
if they would get a similar one 
if they went to Duke next sum- 

preachers were appreciative of 
the helpful observations of their 

The next clinic will be held 
on OcL 2B at which time Jerry 
Wagner of Canton. Ohio, Max 
Johnson of Lynn. Ind., and Max 
Harrison of Shell Creek, Tcnn.. 
are scheduled to preach. These 
sessions arc open to anyone who 
may be interested.

Jack Robinson^ 


While spending a few days at 
home this summer. I chanced to 
attend a Youth Rally or Cru- 
sade for Christ meeting at the 
American Legion Auditorium in 
Roanoke, Virginia. 

The first thing I noticed was 
that the place was jammed — the 
next was the smooth, sincere 
way the youthful minister was 
delivering the message. 

I later learned that this fel- 
low. Jack Robinson, had been 
an All - American basketball 
player for two years and had 
also played in the Olympic 
games in London in 1948. 

Jack was not only the "great- 
est high school basketball play- 
er in interscholastic league his- 
tory." at his Paschal High in 
1945, but also received 14 let- 
ters in baseball, football, and 
track In 1947. while at Baylor 
University on a scholarship. 
Jack received the Jack Demp- 
sey "Outstanding Athlete 
Award." In 1946 and 1948 he 
was named to one of the All- 
American teams. 

It was in 1948 when Jack was 
a member of the American 
Olympic team that he had a 
chance to preach to the entire 
American crew while on their 
way to England on the S. S. 
American. Jack also delivered 
the Olympic sermon that year 
that was broadcast over all 
major networks. 

He has turned down numer- 
ous offers to play professional 
basketball because he was led 
by God to preach. He is still at- 
tending school working on a 
doctor's degree and holding 
meetings like this one in Roa- 
noke during the summers. 

Religion and Athletics supple- 
ment each other, according to 
Jack. Maybe that is why many 
of the great names in the sports 
field have been connected with 
some part of the church. You 
only have to start thinking 
about the sports great to re- 
member some of the greatest 
men of God. 

Truly, Jack Robinson should 
be an example to all of us, a 
really great man whose head 
was never turned to the lure of 
big money but whose heart and 
soul was steadfastly devoted to 
something bigger and better 
than worldly gain — a life de- 
voted to living and preaching 
God's work and the ultimate re- 
ward of eternal life at the end 
of earth's joumeyings. 


The newest club on campus is 
the Phi EU Tau. It is made up 
of all girls who are majoring or 
minoring in physical education. 
Girls who show a vital interest 
in physical education may be- 
come honorary members of the 

Mrs. Vest is the sponsor of

tary. Pat Wilson; Treasurer,

Coach Optimistic 
About Season 

Perhaps Coach Walker 
doesn't want to step off the deep 
end this early in the season- 
But who can blame him? He 
says he is optimistic about the 
coming season on the hard- 
wood and would "not comment 
further. Perhaps he is a smart 
man not to count his chickens 
before they are hatched. After 
all, he has only seen the fresh- 
men in a few intramural games, 
so he does not know for sure 
with what he will have to work- 
What he has seen must look 
hopeful or he would not 
have ventured as far as he did. 
Coach seems to think that the 
new set-up in g>'m classes is 
pleasing to ever>'one. There has 
been an increased interest in 
archery and in horseshoes. The 
archery targets have been placed 
in front of Cheek, and the 
horseshoe pits are located on 
the west side of the gym. Coach 
was also seen placing some 
stakes for horseshoes beside the 
store on Saturday. He invites 
the couples on the campus to 
pitch a few games. Why not try 

Interest has also been shown 
for speedball. Goals have" been 
erected on the football field for 
this fine sport. 

The fall colors have a new 
meaning for Coach and Mrs. 
Walker. They love the red and 
gold of the leaves and the cool 
mornings. The campus seems to 
hold a new meaning when the 
leaves change, especially since 
there is a pair of new eyes in 
the Walker household since last 

Here is a warning from the 
Coach to the boys: Varsity 
players may not participate in 
intramural basketball after the 
first half of the program is 
over. The first half is over about 
the second week in November. 
These three men deserve a 
lot of credit for the work they 
have done: let's all give them a 
big hand! 

Basketball practice began on 
October 20 There seems to be 
much enthusiasm from everj'- 
one concerning prospects for a 
good team %iis year. There are 
six lettermen back: Sam Greer, 
captain of last year's team; Phil 
Roush, one of our leading scor- 
ers last year; Grant La\-man. 
Doug Morehead, Pat Hand and 
Bill Castcel. These six along 
with the freshmen hoopsters 
should be able to show a good 
season on the hardwood. , 

A good basketball team de- 
serves a good cheering section. 
I certainly think that everyone 
could find time to come out to 
see their school team in action- 
All of you who yell about 
"school spirit" should get be- 
hind the rest and get them to 
come to see the games. Basket- 
ball con be a big thing here at 
MiUigan if only we can get some 
support So come on. let's all 
bet on the Buffs and back our 
bets by being at all the home 

It is too early yet for the pub- 
lishing of the years schedule in 
basketball. It will be about the 
same as last year, according to 
Coach Walker. He has not yet

Selective Senice 
Qualification Test 
Deadline Is Nov. I 

Selective Service officials to- 
day reminded college students 
that the deadline for submitting 
applications for the Decemtter 
4 Selective Service College 
Qualification Test is midnight 
November 1 (Saturday), and 
that applications postmarked 
after that time cannot be con- 
sidered. Local draft boards have 
an adequate supply of test ap- 
plication blanks on hand for 
draft-eligible students. 

Students are to mail their 
completed applications to Edu* 
cational Testing Service of 
Princeton. New Jersey. 

To be eligible to apply for the 
college deferment test a student 
must (1) intend to request de- 
ferment as a student; (2) Ije sat- 
isfactorily pursuing a full-time 
course of instruction; and (3) 
must not have previously taken 
the Selective College Qualifi- 
cation Test. 

Another test will be held 
April 23, 1953 but General Her- 
shey emphasized that increasing 
manpower demands make it im- 
portant that each draft-eligible 
student who has not taken the 
test to do so as soon as possible. 

Students whose academic year 
will end in Januar>' 1953 have 
been urged to lake the Decem- 

ber 4, 1952 test so they will have 
a test score in their cover sheets 
before the end of their academic 
year, at which time their boards 
will reopen and reconsider their 
cases to determine whether they 
should be deferred as students. 

The present criteria for de- 
ferment as an undergraduate 
student are either a satisfactory 
score (70) on the Selective Serv- 
ice College Qualification Test or 
specified rank in class (upper 
half of male freshman class, up- 
per two-thirds of the male soph- 
omore class, or upper three- 
fourths of the male junior class). 

Students accepted for admis- 
sion or attending a graduate 
school prior to July 1, 1951 sat- 
isfy the criteria if their work is 
satisfactory. Graduate students 
admitted or attending after July 
1, 1951 must have been in the 
upper half of their classes dur- 
ing their senior year or make a 
score of 75 or better on their 
test. It is not mandatory for 
local boards to follow the cri-

sized many times that the cri-

The two forthcoming admin- 
istrations of the College Quali- 
fication Test represent the 
eighth and ninth testing dat«s of 
the program. In the first series 
of tests 64 per cent of the stu- 
dents achieved a score of 70 or 
better. In the second series 58 

Dream Come True 

(Continued From Pag* On*) 
Even now there is quite a bit 
of work that needs to be done, 
both in obtaining more money 
and in doing the actual con- 
struction work. 

Yes, to the upperclassmen 
this is a dream come true, but 
it is also a dream that is only 
partially finished. At the pres- 
ent time the first floor is al- 
most finished: hard wood floors, 
knotty pine walls, a beautiful 
stone fireplace. However, a 
modem kitchen, soda fountain, 
bootlis, etc., have yet to be 
bought. Little work has been 
done as yet in the basement, 

per cent of the students made 
70 or better- The tests in all 
three series are equivalent in 

Use of tests by the Selective 
Service System, along with class 
standing, was originally based 
on recommendations of the six 
Scientific Advisory Committee 
appointed in 1 948 by General 
Hershey. The Committee's re- 
port, presented by Dr M. H. 
Trytten, Chairman, was made 
in the fall of 1950. After a sub- 
committee had prepared general 
specifications for a suitable test 
of scholastic;, aptitude. Educa- 
tional Testing Service was de- 
signated as the testing agency 
to carry out the construction of 
the test and its nation-wide ad- 

but that will come in due time. 

Money is the important fac- 
tor at the present- Approximate- 
ly $10,000 has been spent on the 
building, but $5,000 more is 
needed to finish the job proper- 
ly, even on a moderate scale. 
Obtaining the necessary funds 
to complete this project is the 
item most necessao' right now. 
There have been many plans 
suggested for doing this; pre- 
sented here is one of the most 
logicaL Each of the classes and 
each club can pledge themselves 
to obtain the money necessary to 
buy a necessary item. For ex- 
ample, the sophomore class 
might decide to build the porch 
or buy a grill, or the Spanish 
Club might decide to buy a 
booth. They could obtain the 
money by writing to their re- 
spective home churches or by 
any other way that they might 
want to. 

When finished the Student 
Union will fill a definite need 
on the Milligan campus. The 
first floor will be divided into 
two units. One unit will include 
such facilities as a soda foun- 
tain, booths, sandwich grill, 
modem kitchen, and provision 
for the sale of school supplies 
and sundry items- The other 
unit will provide adequate fa- 
cilities for banquets, socials, 
club meetings, and in general 
become the center of student 
and alumni affairs. The base- 
ment will contain a game room, 
lounge, rest rooms, and a heat- 
ing plant 

Ar.y&ne v.*ho can sid financial- 
ly should contact either Prof- 
Hyder, faculty advisor for this 
prcjecl. or Frank Colhns, stu- 
dent in charge of solicitations, 
or Bill Morelock. treasurer of 
the project- Those who desire to 
help manually should see Phil 
Roush, Bill Casteel or Bill Rad- 
spinner. who head the work 
committee. It is up to us. the 
present students of Milligan. to 
finish the task that has been 
given us. Whether the new Stu- 
dent Union is to be finished is 
a decision which rests with ev- 
er>'one here. Let's make the 
right one.

Christmas Pageant Friday Night 
Nativity Portrayed By Choral Group 


This year the MiUigan College 
Choir will again present a Chrisl- 
mas pageant Friday evening. De- 
cember 12 at eight o'clock in the 
College auditorium. 

That the partition of time might 
be removed and we be carried 
back through the ages some 1,952 
years, is the object of this pre- 
sentation. The script, which was 
first written by Mrs. Fred Clark 
of AtlanU, Georgia, was later re- 
written by Miss White and so 
constructed as to make the 
Christmas story as vivid and 
nearly real as the first Christmas 

Miss White has produced this 
pageant eight times and each 
year she has improved the mes- 
sage so that more forcefully im- 
prints this Christmas story on the 
minds of the listeners. Now, in 
this day of commercial Christmas, 
MiUigan seeks, in this way, to 
keep Christ in Christmas. 

This is the third time this 
pageant has been given at MiUi- 
gan and it has become another 
of the school's cherished tradi- 
tions. This year promises to sur- 
pass all previous productions. 

Frank Hannah is in charge of 
lighting effects and all reports 
indicate that this will be a very 
outstanding part of the pageant. 
With the combined work of the 
choir and other interested stu- 
dents, this Friday evening pa- 
geant will be one of the year's 
most sacred experiences.

Mr. Tom Hawks, president of 
the Student Council has appoint- 
ed Frank Hannah, Jr., Kitty Rae 
Irvin and Jean Ball to act as a 
committee to draw up a constitu- 
tion for the Student Council 

A need for a written constitu- 
tion has been felt for several 
years and the Council this year 
has decided that something be 
done about it. As soon as the 
constitution is ready it will be 
presented to the Council for ap- 
proval and then submitted to the 
entire Student body for adoption. 

It is hoped that when this con- 
stitution is adopted, it will enable 
the Council to perform a better 
service to the college. 

Passport To America Is 
Dramatic Club Play 

The Milligan Players has set- 
tled dowTi to work on their first 
play of the season — "Passport to 
America." This play is based upon 
the themes of Communism, Capi- 
talism and Nationalism. 

Two casts have been chosen for 
this play which is under the di- 
rection of Miss Price- Great in- 
terest is being shown in the reg- 
ularly scheduled practices. 

The dual casts included: Jim 
Hawes, Bob Walther, Nancy Lane, 
Marilyn Burchtet, Leann Inskeep, 
Pat Wilson, Maxie Smith, Jackie 
Harrison, Maribel Bare, Vonda 
Dorton, Allegra Henry, Albert 
Bevans, Jerry Wagner, Dave De- 
Armond, Dave Brady, Norman 
Held, Libby Ann Warnick. 

Two Girls Make 
Highest Grades 

The boom was lowered on cam- 
pus last week by such stalwarts 
as Professors Jones, Fairbanks, 
and Lewis (to mention only a 
few). The boom consisted of pages 
and pages of mimeographed ques- 
tions which were entitled "Mid- 
Term Exam." When the screams, 
sighs, and groans died out and 
the smoke cleared, we found that 
two students of Milligan College 
came through the first nine weeks 
with straight A's. It is noteworthy 
to mention that both of these stu- 
dents were girls. This is indica- 
tive of something, but we won't 
say what. 

All kidding aside, our hats are 
off to Leann Inskeep and Gail 
Willoughby. Both of these girls 
are active in the affairs of the 
school and still find time for ex- 
tra-curricular activities. Leaim is 
from Mt, Vernon Illinois, and she 
works each afternoon in Johnson 
City, Gail is from Toronto, Ohio, 
and she works in the office here 
at Milligan- 

Students Attend Concerts 

Many Milligan students attend- 
ed the first concert of the Elliza- 
bethton Concert series, Luis Pich- 
ardo, tenor. Miss White took her 
advanced Sight Singing students 
to hear "The Messiah" given at 
State College, Sunday evening, 
December 7. 

Hardin Christmas Party 

The Milligan dormitory girls 
held their annual Christmas pa- 
jama party in . Hardin- parlors, 
Sunday night at ten. December 7. 
Gifts were exchanged and as 
usual, Santa was on the job. 

At the close of the party the 
boy3 from Pardee paid their 
Christmas respects by singing 
Christmas carols. Grant Layman's 
solo was especially enjoyed even 
though Grant was not able to be 
in classes Monday. 

Semester Examinations 

Within two short weeks after 
vacation days are over, the first 
semester ends. Officially the date 
is January 24. Examinations are 
scheduled to begin Januarj- 21 
and grades will be due in the Reg- 
istrar's office about a week or 
ten days later. 

Advanced registration will be 
held before the semester ends so 
that the first classes for the new 
semester will begin at 8:00 am., 
Monday morning, January- 26. 
This saving of the usual registra- 
tion day will help make up some 
of the time of the extended va- 
cation period.

Wednesday evening, December 
10, the Barter Theatre of Virginia 
paid its annual visit to the Milli- 
gan campus playing this year, the 
always popular "The Late Chris- 
topher Bean." 

The cast for this play included 
a number of the Barter veterans 
who have not appeared in former 
presentations at Milligan. 

Mr. Owen Phillips, who played 
Dr. Haggert, is one of the busiest 
members of the Barter company, 
serving in the dual capacity of 
director as well as actor. He has 
appeared in many Warner Broth- 
ers movies and was a member of 
the Stuart Walker Repertory 

A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, 
he was managing director of the 
Actor's Guild and head of the 
drama department at the Cincin- 
nati Conservatory of Music 

Rover Gallico, who played 
Davenport, is the son of the cel- 
ebrated author. Paul Gallico and 
for two seasons has thrilled Bar- 
ter audiences with his versatility 
and character interpretations. 

Charles Quilivan, was Tallant. 
He was chosen by Miss Cornelia 
Otis Skinner as the most promis- 
ing young actor of 1950. Before 
coming to Barter, he appeared 
with Paulette Goddard and "Cea- 
sar and Cleopatra," Shelly Win- 
ters in "Born Yesterday," and 
Maurice Evans in "Devil's Yester- 

Cleo HoUaday, who played Su- 
san Haggert, is a new-comer to 
the cast. Miss Hatladay is a native 
of Suffolk and is winner of the 
Virginia Award for the best ac- 
tress among the drama majors of 
Virginia Universities and Colleges 
for 1951. 

Christmas Vacation 

It would be impossible to tell 
where all our students will be 
working during the Christmas 
vacation period, but we have ask- 
ed a few at random to tell us 
where they will be employed. 

Since the Republicans are in 
power again three of our good 
Republican friends are talung 
over the U. S. post offices in Fort 
Wayne, Indiana; Neenah, Wiscon- 
sin, and Radford, Virginia. They 
are Sue Jackson. Wally Johnson, 
and Bob Williams, rcspectivelj*. 

Pat Ward will be cheering up 
the patients at the West Suban 
Hospital in Oak Park, Illinois. 
E)on t you fellows wish you could 
have your tonsils out? 

Bob Walther reports that he is 
spending his vacation sleeping. It 
must be nice to have enough 
money to be able to steep. 

It looks as if Clarabelle ^\^lite 
has an eye for the future. She is 
working at Hahn's Jewelry Store 
in Liberty, Indiana. 

Jerry Hughes will be at the 
Midwest Heating and Service 
Company in Indianapolis. 

Arlenc Seal and JNierrill Bolkin 
will be clerking in department 
stores, but one will be way up in 
Yankee-land and the other down 
in sunny Tennessee. Arlcne will 
be at the Famous Dcpt Store in 
McKeesport. Pa. Merrill is plan- 
ning to work at Miller and Brew- 
er Dcpl. Store in Harriman.

More Meat On The Menu 

A student walked into my office the other day and 
asked, "Why do I have to go to orientation class and if it 
is so important why isn't credit given?" These questions 
introduced a pleasant visit after which the student sug- 
gested that through he Sampede I tell other students 
some of the points brought out. 

You're now asking what orientation has to do with 
"More Meat on the Menu." Well, think of modern college 
education as a trip through an academic cafeteria. One 
can choose a course here and one there and accumulate 
the necessary hours for a degree. However, the choices 
may not represent a balanced diet. 

Perhaps the most valid and often heard criticisms of 
college education today is that it is possible for one to 
graduate from college in a world of military and ideolog- 
ical wars and yet not have a comprehension of the basic 
principles of the American Way of Life. 

This criticism is valid because there are many students 
who chose only academic appetizers, salads and desserts 
and leave off the meat course. There are others who 
valuing the meat courses, find it difficult to digest them 
because their academic background is one of having 
been "milk fed." 

The Orientation course is a serious attempt to insure 
that in the future every student graduating from Milli- 
gan has had a consideration of the basic concepts and 
principles of his country brought to his attention. 

You ask again, "Then why not give credit for such' an 
important course?" The answer is that to give credit for 
chapel services or orientation assemblies would make of 
them ordinary courses and they are not such. The chapel 
and orientation assemblies are the real fibre of an edu- 

The fact that many students do not appreciate the diet 
does not make it less valuable. Education is perhaps the 
only thijig in the world which people seem anxious to 
pay for and then resist the attempt of the merchant to 
deliver the goods. 

You have before you a wholesome, nourishing, strength- 
ening academic experience. Don't reject the meat. 

Remember To Put Milligan On Your Gift List 

It is trite to repeat our Lord's word at Christmas-time, 
"It is more blessed to give than to receive." To leave 
Christ out of Christmas is to eradicate man's most pre- 
cious Christmas gift, God gave us Christ and Christ 
gave us life more abundantly. We can give Christ to 
men by supporting our school which stresses "Christian 
Education as the hope of the world." 

Milligan College, a dream of Josephus Hopwood, was 
made a reality in 1882. Since its conception, Milligan has 
surged forth to serve the needs of many. Its influ- 
ence has been felt from Cuba to Canada. Its Alumni 
have become leaders in the fields of Medicine, nursing. 
Teaching, Engineering, law and the Ministry. 

Your giving to Milligan will be shared by many. So 
put Milligan on your gift list.

My Impression Of Milligan 

I came to Milligan to standard- 
ize my degree from Kentucky 
Christian College, The atmo- 
sphere here is much the same as 
that found in the Bible college. 
There seems to be a friendly, 
helpful relationship between the 
students and between the students 
and faculty as we strive for an 
education with a Christian orien- 
tation. There are activities to 
suit all students regardless of 
their Interests and future work; 
yet all are people of like ideas. 
for there is a common bond of 
Christian fellowship. The cam- 
pus truly la one of the most beau- 
tiful I have seen. In all I'm thank- 
ful for the opportunity of being 
a part of Milligan College. 

— Mary Frances Denune. 

Arriving from a Bible college 
to Milligan to standardize my de- 
gree proved to be a pleasant ex- 
perience to me. In a Bible col- 
lege one has that unsurpassed un- 
derstanding with students and a 
faculty who are interested m the 
same life's work that one is seek- 
ing. At Milligan not only does 
one have that same understand- 
ing with many of the religion 
majors and professors but also 
many of the liberal arts majors 
are from Christian homes and are 
vitally interested in bringing 
Christ into their particular pro- 
fession and field, I'm grateful 
for the fact that the Christian 
college affords the opportunity to 
be a training ground for effective 
church workers — lay or minis- 
terial — and also that it trains our 
business men and women of to- 
morrow In Christian leadership. 
— Barbara Gulp, 

Good Old Life At Milligan 

We here at Milligan are fortunate in that our secluded area 
here in East Tennessee removes us from some of the most com- 
mon problenis faced by other young people of other colleges 
throughout the country. 

Now, Just for instance, what would you do if: 

1 You found yourself with two dates for 7:00 P. M.? 

a. Give Tri-Cities Airport a call? 

b. Get a bottle of poison from the lab? 

c. Acquire a case of exanUtls? 

d. Break a leg? 

2 Stahl decides college is not the place for you? 

a. Dig a tunnel from Lexington to Ft Knox? 

b. Explain that Grandma just had an operation for the 
removal of her cocyx. and the doctor's bill took 
everything that you made? 

c. Take a Job reprocessing chalk dust to usable form? 

d. Give Tri-Cltiea Airport a call? 

3 Your gal (or guy) doesn't write? 

a. Shoot Mrs, Taylor? 

b. Look In the mirror and write yourself? 

c. Send Truman a wire and tell him his post office 
Isn't very efficient? 

d. Give Tri-Cities Airport a call? 

4 She (or he) starts dating another? 

a. Take it out on your roommate? 

b. Let the air out of their tires while they are in 
the movies? 

c. Load up on shot-gun shells? 

d. Give Tri-Cities Airport a call? 

Like I said, wc don't have to worry about these things — much 
— but if they should come up, a pretty good Idea is to call Tri- 
Cities Airport! 

ToOiir Benefactors 

That there Is a Milligan Col- 
lege family is evident. Besides, 
that family is constantly growing 
and becoming an ever - greater 
reality. This reality is continual- 
ly manifesting itself in good 
works which are generously 
shared with cverbody who has 
the good fortune of being within 
the radiuii of Milligan's warm and 
benevolent influence. 

Nor are those who share as well 
as those who participate in the 
benefits derived from the sharing 
( unfined to the immediate cam- 
pus upon which the school activ- 
ities are carried on and where 
the academic program is pro- 
moted and administered. This Is 
true because there is an ever-in- 
creasing number of people who as 
a result of their genuine interest 
in Chrsitian education have, in a 
very true sense of the term, al- 
ready become sons and daughters 
of Milligan. This Alma Mater has 
embraced them with her WEirm, 
malemalistic spirit of affection, 
and is in many, many ways utiliz- 
ing their contributions just as ef- 
fectively as if they had been grad- 
uated or were in the process of 
receiving scholasitc honors from 
this college. 


Such good folk as George E, 
Walker of Canton. Ohio, and the 
Paxton Avenue Christian Church 
of Chicago, Illinois, because of 
their recent bestowal of lounge 
furniture and drapes for Pardee 
Hall, are receiving an unusual ap- 
proval and praise at the hands of 
everyone who is privileged to ad- 
mire and use these wonderful 

And it goes without saying that 
the on-campus members of the 
Milligan family mean to bestow 
the best-possible care upon these 
gifts BO that the off-campus gen- 
erosity may not have been lavish- 
ed in vain. 

Furthermore, we all are proud 
as well as grateful for the bene- 
ficence of those who have so gen- 
erously contributed to the erec- 
tion of the new Student Union 
Building, which is in its final 
stages of completion. 

If there are those whose gen- 
erosity prompts them to think in 
temu of floor lamps and table 
lamps for the lounge at Pardee 
Hall, we assure you that we shall 
not t>o unappreciative of your 


All in all. these kindnesses, 
these sharings. these apprecia- 
tions, and determinations to util- 
ize wisely the benefits of all these 
devotions coiistitute proof posi- 
tive that Milligan's family be- 
lieves whole heartedly in the 
creation of a spiritual arsenal of 
Christian achievement which will 
continue to merit the admiration 
and intelligent goodwill of cver>'- 
one who comes to know the de- 
termination of Milligan College to 
place beyond the possibility of 
misunderstanding her abiding de- 
.lirc to keep her appointment with 

Teacher — Can you tell me any- 
thing atfout the great chemists of 
the seventeenth century? 

Boy — They're all dead. 

Sarge: "Arc you happy in the 

Pvt: "Yes sir." 

Sarge: "What were you before 
you joined?" 

PvL: "Much happier!" 

The sermon had lasted an hour 
and a half already — an hour and 
a quarter given to major prophets, 
and the preacher hod not got a 
third of the way through the 
minor ones yet At last, he paused 
imprcssivel>'. and exclaimed. 

"And Habakkuk — where shall 
we put him?" 

A man rose in the back row. 
"Be can have my seat. Mister!" 

"Did you sec that letter that 
he got from the draft? He was 
reclassified as 1-A." Such is life. 
Now if you would write to your 
Congressman . . . 

"I'll sure be glad when they get 
the Student Union Building fin- 
ished. It's a good thing, but it's 
not doing anyone any good just 
half finished." That's the way we 
feel about it too. but it lakes work 
and money. If you reallj' want to 
get it done, how about helping 
out a little bit in one of these

"I heard the bells on Christmas day 
Their old familiar carols play. 
And wild and sweet the words repeat 
Of peace on earth, good will to men. 

"And in despair I bowed my head: 
'There is no peace on earth,' I said, 
'For hate is strong, and mocks the song, 
Of peace on earth, good will to men.' 

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: 
'God is not dead, nor doth He sleep; 
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail, 
With peace on earth, good will to men!" 
—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. 

This and This and That 

Since many of the studonts keep their STAMPEDE as a 
memory book, this column contains notices of many erents

Thanks Republicans 

The Milligan College Young 
Republican Club feels a geunine 
pride in the results of the recent 
election and wishes to thank each 
of its constituents for their sup- 
port and votes. 

Our only regret is that the 
election held no surprises and we 
all like the unusual. However, in 
this instance, we were glad to 
forgo this small pleasure in order 
to vanquish the forces of corrup- 
tion, communism, graft, log-roll- 
ing, pork- barrelling, favoritism, 
mink coats and deep freezes. 

Now we look forward to unpre- 
cedented prosperity for these 
United States as well as the en- 
tire world. The capabilities of the 
men just elected promise along 
with the lessening of world ten- 
sion and domestic improvements.

Tom Rash, a missionary to India presented the two chapel pro- 
grams one week in November. He also Showed slides of the 
mission work there. 

Leland Terrill. President of Winston-Salem Bible College in 
North Carolina, spoke in chapel also. We were very glad to 
have Mr, Terrill back with us to tell us of his work among the 
Negro brethren there. 

The other day I was roving 
around Hardin Hall with nothing 
much to do. It's surprising how 
much you can leam in a place 
like that. One topic of conversa- 
tion was how Betty Mise's hair 
got to be so red. Jody told me 
that Mrs. Mise washed Betty's 
hair when she was little. They 
forgot to dry it, so it rusted. Betty 
was running around the other 
night with a bottle of Chlorox 
and a big box of Tide, saying that 
she was going to wash her hair 
Maybe that's how she keeps it 
that way. 

Shirley and Margaret Jane have 
been complaining because Charles 
Smythers won't speak to them. 
Oh Weill Some boys are like 
that. Don't feel bad. girls. 

All the girls agree that Bob 
Whit gets along fine with just one 
arm. They are worried about 
what he'll be like after he gets 
that cast off. With all this prac- 
tice, he should be an expert one- 
£irm driver. 

Jeanette Brown woke up half 
of second floor the other morn- 
ing. She was screaming about 
something being so beautiful. 
When we got her calmed down, 
we discovered that it was the 
first time our Florida gal had 
ever seen snow. She loves it! 

Rollie ought to make the base- 
ball team this year. Goodness 
knows he's had enough practice 
and he gets it by throwing rocks 
at Jan's window. 

Frank Hannah surprised every- 
one by appearing at the LaVaux 
Concert without a date. 

When the lights went off Fri- 
day night. I thought I heard 
Sally. Sam, Pat and Doc com- 
plaining because they couldn't 
see to study. Everyone else seem- 
ed to enjoy the candlelight.

November seemed to be the month for missionary visitors to 
the campus. We were very pleased to have Miss Dorothy Nichols.' 
a missionary recruit to India, visit with us for about a week. 
She was a guest of her cousin, Manbel Bare, who has also lived 
on the mission field.

Bob Ban Lew and Dick Moore have been recent visitors to the 
campus. It seems as though the last of these two left something 
behind. Ask Betty Jeanne Snodgrass what that sparkling thing 
is on her third finger. Bob left one here last summer before he 
graduated — right. Harriet? 

Many of the students and faculty attended the famed Marine 
Band Concert given at State in November. 

Knowles Duo gave a concert here in our auditorium for the 
first of the series. Paul Knowles" father and grandfather were

be held after Christmas. 

Several students bought tickets for the Mikado which was to

There were many alumni and former students on the campus

Report From Coach Walker 

DECEMBER 8, 1952— 

A win over Tusculum College December 9, would have 
put us in a more favorable position to even accounts with 
East Tennessee State this season. In any event, the out- 
come of the game should be a good indication of our chances 
in the Smokey Mountain Conference this season. In add- 
tion to Milligan, the SMAC is composed of Tusculum of 
Greeneville; Carson-Newman of Jefferson City; Lincoln 
Memorial Universitj' of Harrogate; Union College of Bar- 
bourville, Kentucky; and Emory and Henry, of Emory, 

Union, L. M. U,. and Tusculum will be fighting for first 
place (with Milligan, of course). All teams in the SMAC 
seem to be somewhat stronger than last year. Tusculum, 
especially, has a added wealth of material and will be dif- 
ficult for any team to handle. 

In the other conference in which we are a member, the 
Volunteer State Athletic Conference, the competition is 
even stiffer. Its members are: Milligan, East Tennessee 
State, L. M. U., Austin Peay State, David-Lipscomb, Union 
(Tenn.), and Bethel. In close competition in last season's 
VSAC tournament, David-Lipscomb nosed out a game East 
Tennessee State team for the Championship. We played one 
of our best ball games in losing to Austin Peay State in 
the opener. So thorough was our drive from behind and 
our almost overtaking A.P.S.C. that they were forced to 
freeze the ball the major part of the last quarter. 

In cumulative totals to this date (Dec. 8), three of our 
boys have above a ten point total per game average: Bud 
Gaslin, 15.7; Sam Greer. 13.0; Jim Burgett, 10.7. Three others 
have above nine point averages: Joe Dickey, 9-9; Glen 
Barton, 9.0; and Phil Roush, 9.0. 

The above statistics shouldn't be taken too seriously, for 
two reasons: 1 — the averages could have been higher had 
I played them longer in each game (for instance, I played 
them only two quarters each in the first game); and 2 — 
the averages could have been much lower if other mem- 
bers of the team had not made it possible for them to re- 
ceive the ball in an attempt to score. At the present time 
we have only three boys who are shooting field goals at 
,300 per cent or better. (Divide the number of attempts 
into the number of field goals). Hitting .333 would mean 
scoring one time for every three attempts. Bud Gaslin 
is leading, temporarily, at least, with a .509 pet.; Sam Greer 
follows with .375; Glen Barton is the third above .300 with 
.361 pet. 

In free throwing percentage, the team is somewhat bet- 
ter. Gaslin leads with .900 pet.; Greer, .842; Roush, .777; 
Barton, .714. 

For team totals for games to date, our Buffaloes have 
tallied 300 points for an average of 75 points per game. 
Our opponents have scored 260 points for a 65 point per 
game average. Our shooting percentage of .303 for field 
goals is lower than our opponents ottals of .340. 

Joe Dickey and Glen Barton are tied at present in the 
rebounding department, each have a total of 50 credited 
to them. 

The continued interest and moral support of the students 
and faculty is greatly needed and similarly appreciated. 
If you don't have a schedule of the all the games— see me. 

Here is a suggestion to everyone — If you expect to rate 
around here, don't expectorate in the gym. 

— Coach Walker. 

Pioneers Win In Overtime Period 

Game Sununaries 



Tusculum Pioneers of Greene- 
ville defeated MiUigan Buffs at 
Cheek Gym. Tuesday evening, in 
a thrilling neck-and-neck battle 
which took overtime to decide the 

At the end of the regular play, 
the score stood at 82-82. Chief 
official McNabb called for a five 
minute overtime period when the 
Pioneers forged ahead to win 96 
to 92. 

In this overtime play MiUigan 
was somewhat handicapped in 
not having its first team through 
excessive fouling while Tuscu- 

lum lost the service of only one 
of its first team members. 

The scoring for the overtime 
period netted Tusculum 14 points 
to Milligan's 10 for the final totals 
of 96 ot 92. 

Green of Tusculum was high 
scoring man of both teams with 
53 points. Joe Dickey and Sam 
Greer of the Buffs scored 19 and 
17 points, respectively. Dickey 
was the only one of Milligan's 
first five to finish the game. 

Foul shooting was a deciding 
factor against Milligan having 
made only 12 points out of 32 
throws while Tusculum captured 
28 out ot 42. 

Buffs Blast Skylanders 

The Milligan College Buffaloes 
literally blasted the Steed Tech 
Skylanders from the hardwood at 
Boones Creek on Saturday night, 
as six Skylanders left the court 
via the personal foul route, and 
the Buffs ran up an 86-54 score. 

The Buffaloes were hampered 
on their fast break somewhat be- 
cause of the small court. The 
game was played in a gym usual- 
ly used by high schools. But the 
Buffaloes made up for this by 
coming down and settmg up, and 
working the ball into Greer, who 
burned m seventeen points to 
take high scoring laurels for the 
mght's game. 

Coach Duard Walker was able 
to clear the pine bench and ev- 
ery man of the fourteen man 
traveling squad earned at least 
one quarter toward their letter. 

Milligan Saws Paty 


The Milligan College Buffaloes, 
in their initial home game in 
Cheek g>"m, ran Paly Lumber Co. 
through a buzz-saw as they stam- 
peded the Lumbermen to sawdust 
with a 73-59 score. 

Coach Duard Walker's fighting 
freshmen carried the brunt of the 
attack in hustling and scoring, 
but veterans Greer and Rouih 
came through and were not out- 
done by them. Greer slammed-m 
fourteen points, and Roush spot- 
ted the nets for thirteen points 
on -set shots, tip-ins and hook 

Buffs Handed First Loss 


Concord College of Athens, W. 
Va., handed the Buffs their first 
loss of the 1952-53 season. 83-67 
here in Cheek Gym. Milligan, 
cold from the start, could not 
seem to get its defense chcking- 
All the spark and fighting spint 
was present in the team but it 
always showed up just a second 
too late. The Buffs hit only 2691- 
of their shots, while the Concord 
Mountain Lions hit 40% through- 
out the game. 

Ken Gaslin hit 17 points for 
the Buffaloes but this was not 
sufficient for the cause. 

Buffs Calm Tornadoes 


After a cold night against Con- 
cord, the Milligan Buffaloes were 
out for blood against the King 
College Tornadoes. This thirst 
coupled with the will to win, re- 
sulted in a 69-54 victory over the 
Tornadoes, the first tmie in three 
years, on King's court. 

Ken Gaslin. freshman from 
Kentucky, spearheaded this at- 
tack. Ken, helped by his team- 
mates, racked up 20 points, fol- 
lowed by Jim Burgett and Glen 
Barton with 14 points each. 

Trailing at hall-time bv a score 
of 41-34. Coach Walker switched 
his men from, a man-to-man de- 
fense to a zone defense. Although 
the Buffs had not practiced this 
defense before, they turned the 
tables against King Phil Roush 
and Barton turned in a superb 
floor game from this point for- 

At the end of the third quar- 
ter, the Buffaloes, leading now by 
one point, poured on the steam 
and won the game by a five- 
point margin. Joe Dickey showed 
a remarkable ability to control 
the backboard by securing 27 re- 
bounds in the last half. 

Girls' Basketball 

The Milligan College Girls' 
Basketball team was defeated in 
their first game Tuesday night by 
a team from Cloudland High 
School. The final score was 28- 
17. The Cloudland team was 
coached by Charles Shell, a form- 
er Milligan student 

Honeycutt was high scorer for 
Cloudland with a total of 17 
points. Mise scored 11 points for 

Before the gome the rooting 
section (which was made up al- 
most entirely ot men was led in 
a few yells by that famous cheer- 
leading team of Morehcad. Will- 
iams, Gaslin. Barton, and Wor- 



As I sat in the gymnasium over at Bristol Saturday night 
watching the game between Milligan and King Colleges, 
I could not help but be impressed by the enthusiasm of 
both the team's fans who had journeyed out to see the game. 

True, the crowd was small, but as the teams were battling 
down to the line, usually trading basket for basket, one 
was impressed by the fact that here were two schools play- 
ing just for the 'kicks' and for the honor of good 'Ole Alma 

There were no paid athletes on these two ball clubs — in- 
stead there was a group of boys who believed that Chris- 
tian education was, and still is, the hope of the world- 
They were playing because they loved the game. 

These same fellows will throughout the season play teams 
many times their own enrollment; schools with scouting 
systems set up to lure the cream of the high school athletes 
into their field and with money to give them everything 
but the kitchen sink, if they can produce the necessarj' 
winning record that the coach must have in order to hold 
his job. 

Now, is it fair to pit these small college teams supported 
by the churches against tax supported schools? Why don't 
we do something about it? 

At best, the Smok>* Mountain Conference is a joke any- 
more and the V.S.A.C., is only slightly better. Why can't 
the church supported schools of this area unite and form a 
conference of their own? It would certainly make for more 
even competition and in time should grow to become one 
of the strongest ever. 

At least they would have something in common that is 
currently lacking in both conferences of this area at the 
present time. They would have Christian education in their 
schools and above all. the love of God in their hearts. 


Roses for the cheerleaders this month! They have done 
a swell job at the games this year; but without the fans, 
what good would the cheerleaders be? As long as the fans 
turn out, I'm sure that the girls and "Doc" will be there 
to help you yelL I notice that there were several over at 
King College Saturday night The crowd from Milligan 
was small but they really had the spirit! Many thanks to 
two of our best fans: Jackie Harrison and George Davis. 
These two pulled for the team every minute. 


By 'TUB" 

Well, Sport fans, since the last time we were together, 
our Buffaloes have hit the victory traiL It seems that 
Coach Walker had every right to be optimistic at the first 
of the season. One word of caution to the boys on the 
team: Do not become over-confident; over-confidence has 
lost many a ball game. 

Here is a roster of team members, their class and home- 
town; Phil Roush, Junior, Hillsboro, Ohio; Sam Greer, 
Jimior, Mountain City, Tenn.; Grant Laj-man, Junior, Hills- 
boro, Ohio; Douglas Morehead, Junior, Radford, Va.; Tom 
Neff, Junior, Danville. Indiana; Jim Fox, Sophomore, 
Greeneville, 'Tenn.; Pat Hand, Sophomore, Farragut, Tenn.;

man, Louisville, Ky.; Don Williams. Freshman. Jonesville,.

I wish to welcome to the paper this week a writer with* 
whom everyone is acquainted, Pat "Kozar" Hand. Else- 
where on this page will be found his write-ups of the 
Steed-Milligan, and Patj--Milligan games. I hope we might 
have more of his work. 

Coach Duard Walker has also contributed a fine piece 
of work. Perhaps he too will be with us in a later edition. 

Leonard Gallimore. who is now assistant sports editor, 
has given us one solution that may help church supported 
schools to have a better sports program. There must be 
many schools that have rough competition because of the 
tax-supported schools in the conferences. Perhaps there 
are others of you readers who have thoughts along this line. 
Let me hear from you. After all, this is your paper, you 
know! Perhaps this column can be some place we can. 
hash out your sports problems We can at least try.

The Stampede 

This is your STAMPEDE. We hope you like it. This paper 
was made possible by nine studentB and three faculty members. 
The faculty members were. Miss Marie Smith; MLsb Haxel 
Turbyville — proofreader — and Chaplain Elmer Lewis, technical 
advifior. Other than these duties, the faculty did nothing . . . 
Therefore THIS IS a paper for students, by students. I agree 
with you that there should have been a paper before this, but 
this paper was like the weather— "everybody talks about it, but 
no one bothers to do anything about il." 

I sincerely appreciate the invaluable aid that has been given 
to me by these nine reliable students: These were: Mary Speer, 
Gene Click, Girmy Snyder, Bill CaaleoL Everett Smock, Jim 
Fox, Katie Colbert; Sarah Zacharias, and Jim Hawes. 

I hope you'll appreciate the efforts made by these people, 
and we hope you'll thoroughly enjoy your STAMPEDE. If 
you do, let ua know. 


Editing A Neivspaper Is Not Easy 

Some appear to think that running a newspaper is 
easy, but from experience we can say that it is no picnic, 
because readers are hard to please. 

If we print jokes, people say we are silly. 

If we don't, they say we are too serious. 

If we clip things from other papers, we are too lazy 
to write them ourselves. 

If we don't we are struck on our own stuff. 
If we stick to the job all day, we ought to be out hunt- 
ing news. 

If we do get out and try to hustle, we ought to be 
on the job. 

If we don't print contributions, we do not appre- 
ciate true genius; and if we print them, the paper is 
filled with junk. 

If we make a change in the other fellow's copy, we 
are too critical. 

If we don't, we are asleep. 

Now, like as not some guys will say we swiped this 
from some other paper. And WE DID.

couldn't get through a hole in the 
wall so he killed himself out of 
sheer despair, and the babe can't 
stand it without her man so she 
calls it quits also. Very sad. 

The Talent Show, for the bene- 
fit of the Annual, where Jay 
Cooper introduced a new type 
of English (?) to Milligan, and 
Johnny "Pat" Ray "cried" out 
his troubles. Just about every- 
one in school was in the talent 
show — even the faculty and John 

March 5th, when Rod Strong — 
dancer — and Boris Gregory — 
concertinest — presented what ev- 
eryone thought — and was — the 
best concert! Man, it really rock- 
ed the joint! 

Tommy Overton and the Chris- 
tian Service Club Banquet, when 
all the girls wore their formats 
and loolu^ so beauitful, and we 

all ate good home-cooking and 
had a good time. 

Spring vacation from March 
27th to April 7th, and we all ate 
and got fat again, and either 
mowed grass or shoveled snow, 
depending on where we lived. 

^*The Robe," presented by Er- 
win High School, and we thought 
it was pretty good acting for a 
high school group. 

The National Forensic League 
on May 4th. and how Jim Fox 
almost went wild with all the fe- 
male debaters running the 
campus for two days. 

May Day, and how impressed 
the "Rebels" were? And every- 
one else, because it was so beau- 
tiful and so much fun. How lovely 
the May court looked — especially 
the King and Queen; and it had 
all the pomp and pageantry and 
entertainment to make the big- 
gest social event of the year. 

And that just about winds up 
the highhghts of this year at Mil- 
bgan. Of course, we have missed 
some, such as the time you had 
that particular first dale, or a 
swell party, or that basketball 
game that was so hot, but, nev- 
ertheless, you have your own 
memories anyway, and we hope 
you have enjoyed your year at 
Milligan. It's been fun. sad, and 
hard, and you're probably glad 
that the end of the year is here; 
but I imagine that before the 
Eununer is half gone that you'll 
be looking forward to coming 
back to Milligan. 

We still have a lot of things 
yet to do besides a term paper 
for Miss Jones, and here they are: 
May 22— Choir Concert at MiUi- 
23 — Freshman Picnic. 
24— Milligan Day at First 
Christian Church in J. C. 
27 — Exams start! 
29— Senior Farewell. 
30 — Commencement Play 

and Lawn Paryt 
31 — Baccalaureate. 
June 1 — Commencement.

Two chorus girls were discuss-

"That man," said one of them, 
"has the longest body of any man

The other girl looked at her. 

"Whatever do you mean by 
that?" Bhe Inquired. 

The first one shrugged. 

"Well," she explainea, 'this will

72nd Annual 
Commencement At 
Milligan June 1st 


At 10:00 a.m., Monday, June 1st, 
Thirty-three seniors, led by their 
distinguished faculty, will walk 
down the front lawn of the Ad- 
ministration Building to hear 
Lawrence Derthick, commence- 
ment speaker, deliver the com- 
mencement address and then 
walk across the platform to re- 
ceive their degrees from Presi- 
dent Walker, and also congratu- 
latory handshakes from Prasi- 
dent Walker, Dean Donald G. 
Suhli, and William Bowman, 
president of the Alumni Associa- 

This wiU be the crowning point 
of glory, the goal they have 
striven for at Milligan. Not every 
Senior has spent four years at 
Mil-'igan, but their time (whether 
one year or four) has surely 
profited them. As President Wal- 
ker has said at previous com- 
mencements, and will probably 
say at this one — "You do not 
graduate out of the Milligan Man- 
ner, vou graduate into trie Milli- 
gan Manner." 

This graduating class of 1953, 
sponsored by Professor Guy Oaks, 
will, on June 1st .launch thirty- 
three outstanding personalities 
into the fields of teacning, minis- 
try, music, chemistry, history, 
home economics, and business ad- 
ministration. Perhaps some the 
most outstanding would be: Belts 
Still, president of the graduating 
class, recommended to "Who's 
Who." and May Queen; and Paul 
Bajko from Poland; Maribel Bare, 
voted Most Intellectual by the 
student body and also recom- 
mended to represent Milligan in 
the 1952-53 edition of "Who's 
Who In American Colleges and 
Universities"; Jean Ball, who was 
also chosen to represent Milhgan 
in "Who's Who''; Tom Hawks, 
who is outstanding in baseball, 
tennis and was president of the 
Student Council, was also chosen 
to "Who's Who"; Kitty Rae Irvin. 
voted to "Who's Who": Karlyn 
Keyes Marshall, who was editor 
of the year-book and also a rep- 
resentative to "Who's Who"; Bill 
Morelock, who was business man- 
ager for the year-book, which 
came out on top with additional 
money to start next year's annual; 
and Louise Spurgin, who was out- 
standing in music. 

To all the Seniors, we give them 
our best. Good bye and good luck.

Cheek that would be very in- 

Did everyone know that our 
own Tootsie had a steadv at Geor-

the end of Tootsie and 'Joe. but 
incidentally, I don't think that

under his feet. The latest report 
has it that he thinks that nurses 
are pretty swell. 

This business of graduation 
really present Milligan with sev-

The 1953 Spring Choir Tour, 
given by our College Choir, was 
a hu)»e success. The work done 
by Miss White, our most capable 
director, and the careful planning 
that went into it had gratifying 
results. The tour extended over 
a period of two-and-a-half weeks, 
and covered about three thousand 
miles. We were privileged to 
sing before seventeen different 
audiences, including two major 
Christian conventions, the South- 
em, at Atlanta. Georgia, and the 
North American, at Canton, Ohio. 

The membership of this year's 
Choir is the largest in the his- 
tory of the school — being fifty- 
five voices strong. We had as our 
accompanists two of our own 
students, Jay Cooper, a junior 
from Scranton, Pennsylvania, and 
Arlene Seal,, from McKeesport, 
Pennsylvania, also a junior. Our 
soloists were RoUie Nagle, Louise 
Spurgin, Grant Layman, and 
Jerry Lindell, who narrated one 
of our numbers. Miss Welshimer 
went along to speak in behalf of 
the school. We had also a most 
versatile business manager, Tom 
Archibald not only handled the 
finances, was narrator and soloist 
in part of the program, but he 
also filled in witn the quartet for 
several pragrams when Dave De- 
Armond had a case of laryngitis, 
and for Miss Welshimer when she 
was attending the Convention. 

We left school on Wednesday 
morning. April 8th, in a caravan 
of nine cars bound for Atlanta, 
Georgia. We were to sing by in- 
vitation before the Southern 
Christian conventon. We arrived 
there in time to attend a Youth 
Banquet given by the Atlanta 
Christian College, after which we 
sang in the Wesley Memorial 
Auditorium where the Convention 
was being held. The next day 
some of us took time to tour 
Grant Park and visit the Cyclo- 
rama Building which houses the 
mammoth circular painting of the 
Battle of Atlanta. 

Our next stop back home where 
we stayed for one night — just 
enough time to pack a few last 
minute articles and start out again 
on Friday afternoon. This time, 
however, we had two huge Ten- 
nessee coaches and our drivers, 
Ed Hensley and Frsmk Jennings. 

We gave a program in Jones- 
ville, Virginia, which is the home 
of a number of our students. From 
there we travelled north to Cov- 
ington, Kentucky, and since we 
had no concert that Saturday 
night, a few of us ventured across 
the river into Cincinnati. After 
our program on Sunday morning, 
we came on down to Louisville 
for an evening concert at the 
Church where Olin Hay is min- 
ister and where Mary Perry, a 
Milligan graduate, is Minister of 
Youth. We saw also Milligan 
alumni Bob Van Lew and Dick 
Moore. Louisville is the home of 
Bud Gaslin and many of us met 
and talked with his folks there. 

By noon on Monday we were in 
Franklin, Indiana, and most of us 
took advantage of this afternoon 
off to go to a movie or to shop 
and add to our growing collec- 
tion of hats, stuffed animals, 
greeting cards, trick devices, and 
literature (Pogo, Bugs Bunny, 
Archie, etc.) 

Our concerts in Indiana were 
given in Greenewood, Washing- 
ton, Spencer, Indianapohs. Dan- 
ville, the home of John Worrell 
and Tom Netf, and in Plainfield 
It was during our stay in one of 
these places that Miss Welshimer 
almost had to share a house with 
an old torn cat. Of course, the cat 

somebody in Ohio. 

When is Amon going to wake 
up and give the girls aroimd here 
a break? There is one in particu- 
lar that would be very interested, 

Jim and Helen are back to- 
gether in spite of a broken mir- 
ror and a wounded fist. For par- 
ticulars, see Jim. 

Cur own muscle man seems to 
have settled himself at last Not 
mentioning any names, but I 
tnink she is the new secretary for 
Miss Hale. When they spend 4 
hours at tho fish pond (talking), 
it must be love. 

Evidence reveals that Phil and 
Sue have ever>;'thing patched up 
now. We're mighty glad, 'cause 
there were a couple oi long faces 
around here for a couple of

lost the decision, but I'll bet he'll 
never forget it. In Indianapolis, 
however, Miss Welshimer was the . 

Croud recipient of a perfectly 
eautiful bouquet of flowers from 
Paul Jones, which made her very 
happy. Miss White also received 
some extra inspiration along the 
way. G. B. joined us in Danville. 
It was in Danville, too, where we 
picked up our distinctive Milli- 
gan College trademark, our Chin- 
ese coolie hats. This was prob- 
ably the most widely used form 
of publicity promoted by the 
members of the Choir, since by 
merely walking down the street 
wearing our chapeaus we contact- 
ed many people who asked which 
institution we represented. 
(Wasn't that the right thing to do. 
Dean Sahli?) 

I don't know what Indiana does 
to people, but it was while in 
that state that Gail Willoughby 
acquired a most peculiar taste in 
clothes. Right before a concert, 
Gail was scouting desperately for 
her shoes and when she opened 
her suitcase it was packed full of 
apparel of very definite mascu- 
line nature; in fact, they looked 
like Norman Held's clothes. What 
could have happened? 

After visiting Indianapolis once 
more where we were happy to 
see Patty Bishop, we left fediana 
and crossed over into Ohio and 
stopped in Cincinnati, Jan Wal- 
ker's home town. Other stops in 
Ohio included the cities of Ports- 
mouth, from where Dave Brady 
hails, Lancaster, Martin Ferry, 
the home of Amon McSwords and 
Glenn Cunningham, and Canton, 
where Bob Walther. Bill Lewis, 
and Jerr>' Wagner live. 

We were able to spend a half 
a day at the Northern Christian 
Convention and I don't think 
there was one of us who failed to 
see at least one friend there — 
some saw even relatives. ((Oracle, 
for instance, had a reunion with 
brother Byron.) In the evening a 
banquet was given in honor of 
Milligan College; among those 
present were Dr. Walker, some of 
our professors, and a number of 
alumni. The numbers given by 
the Choir that night seemed to be 
well received by the audience, 
and all of us were benefited and 
enriched by our fellowship with 
other Christians. 

The last place on the toiu- was 
Cumberland, Maryland, and, as 
was the case on several other 
nights, we had some special 
guests with us. They were Miss 
White's parents and friend was 
journeyed down from Pennsyl- 
vania to Cumberland. Mr. White 
was celebrating his birthday and 
since a surprise was in order. Miss 
White ordered a big birthday 
cake and presented it "To Dad 
White from Blossom and the 
Choir." So we all took part in 
wishing him well 

The next morning, which was 
Saturday, we embarked on the 
long journey back to school. We 
stopped in Salem, Virginia, where 
we were served refreshments and 
had an opportunity to meet her 
family. Later, when we stopped 
for supper, we said goodbv offi- 
cially to our drivers, Eci and 
Frank, who would be leaving us 
in Bri.'^tol. We arrived home on 
campus at 11 o'clock verv tired 
but eargerly awaiting next year's

Milligan Players to Present Commencement Play ''Spring Fever' 

On May 30, 1953, at 8:00 p.m., in 
the college auditorium, the com- 
mencement play — under the di- 
rectorship of Miss Lucy Price — 
will be presented to students, fac- 
ulty, graduating seniors, their 
parents, and the parents of those 
people in the play. This play 
should be received well as it de- 
picts the plight of three seniors 
who are afraid they won't grad- 
uate because they're in quite a 
mess, but here is the play in 

Mrs. Spangler keeps a rooming- 
house at Brookfield College, and 
she says, "I never know if they're 
in or out. They come and go so 
fast you couldn't keep track of 
them if you were a paid spy." 
That's more than true on the day 
before Commencement; for, in 
addition to her regular college- 
boy roomers, their girls keep pop- 
ping in and out, a few parents 
and an aunt show up, and the 
"Prexy" and Professor Bean find 
occasion to call several times. 
And things happen! Spring fever 
has hit Brookfield. 

Ed Burns, a chemistry student, 
has turned his room into a labo- 
ratory, where he experiments 
with a substitute for dynamite; 
Vic Lewis, an art student, sets up 
his dais and easel in the living 
room; Howard Brant, a senior 
types frantically at a term paper 
on zoology. He will be graduated 
the next day if he can get it in 
on time. 

Lou Herron, a journalist stu- 
dent, breezes in every now and 
then to use the lypewriler and — 
maybe — see Ed. Ann Purcell, 
Howard's "heart-interest" (and 
she's that way about Howai-d), 
has forgotten to reserve rooms at 
the hotel for her millionarie 
father and her mother. She can 
take care of her mother in the 
girl's dorm, but not her father, 
so she persuades Howard to put 
her father up in his room. 

But when the dignified and 
elegant Mr. Purcell arrives, Vic 
thinks he is the art model en- 
gaged to pose for a picture of a 
Russian Bolshevik. Only the 
agency has phoned that the fel- 
low is erratic and does not want 
.to pose as a Bolshevik; so Vic 
and Ed grab Mr. Purcell, gag him. 
strip him of most of his clothes, 
put a smock on him. tie him to a 
natrack, and intimidate him with 
an explosion from Ed's laboratory 
— all so Vic won't fail in his first 
commission for a picture. The 
mistake is discovered, but Mr, 
Purcell departs in great fury and 
withdraws his offer to present a 
new science building to the Col- 

In the meantime. Howard's 
Aunt Maude, who has put him 
through college and who will 
send him to Europe when he is 

fraduated, arrives unexpectedly. 
he is put in Howard's room. 
learns of his failure to pass his 
zoology course, and decides to 
pose as a famous zoologist, get on 
the good side of Professor Bean. 
and persuade him to "pass" How- 
ard. Mrs. Purcell comes search- 
ing for her husband, who she 
thmks is being kept prisoner in 
the house in a kidnap plot. 

Anne Purcell, aiaea by her 
chum, Vivian, Vic's girl, and by 
Vic, posing as a doctor, puts on 
a deathbed scene in order to get 
hdr father to sign a paper promis- 
ing the science building if How- 
ard is allowed to graduate. But 
Vic's mustache comes off and the 
deception is discovered! Howard 
has left with the paper, however, 
to hand it to President Dixon. 
He decides he can't go through 
with the trick and comes back to 

fiack his things. He will pull out, 
eaving his girl, his disappointed 
aunt, and his diploma behind. 

But why tell more? It's all 
fast and furious and funny — with 
loud explosions every now and 
then from Ed's "stinkum stink- 
torium" for good measure — and 
it all ends entirely to everybody's 

Says Ed, "I wish college was 
always like this." So do we! 
We've had one day of spring 
fever, and we think it's swell! 
This is the concensus of opin- 
ion of the members of the cast. 
We think you'll agree with thorn 
after you've seen "Spring Fever," 

Speaking of the members of 
the cast we'll just give you a run 
down on the list of characters.

A lovely, sunny day was the

Sports In Review As I Saw It— From the Bench 


The basketball rendition of the 
Milligan College Buffaloes pound- 
ed the hardwood and ripped the 
nets for a successful season. Al- 
though not as spectacular as past 
teams, such as the one that won 
the SMAC six straight times, nev- 
erless they had their stars and 
their moments. There were the 
two steady men— the veterans- 
Sam Greer and Phil Roush, co- 
captains, of this squad. From 
there, freshmen took charge. It 
was Jim Burgett, bali-handlmg 
wizard, that awed the crowd and 
the opposition with his almost 
flawless ball-handling. Bud Gas- 
lin, a "go for broke" guard, who 
was hell-on-wheels until an ill- 
fated accident forced him out of 
Basketball. Glen Barton, a ball- 
hawking guard who could re- 
bound both boards with devas- 
stating effectiveness to the oppo- 
sition; and Joe Dickey. ^ b\ 
center, who played basketball 
hard and good, and came out on 
top in scoring. And then for the 
scrubs, there was capable Doug 
Morehead; and sharp - shooting 
Donme WiUiams; Norman Held, 
a fighting, ball-hawking little 
guard, who finally broke into rec- 
ognition late in the season; Grant 
Layman, Jim Fox. Bill Casteel, 
Pat Hand, and Tom Neff also 
showed up well at various times 
throughout the season. 

To persons outside of MiUigan 
this would not seem a success- 
ful season as compared to other 
teams, but to the men who have 
played, to the students, faculty, 
and other friends who have 
watched these Milligan Men play 
this game called basketball, and 
know the coach who directs these 
men on and off the hardwood, 
the kind of man who teaches high 
moral standards, such as telling 
his men, -You're in Milligan first 
of all to study and make your 
grades, and then to play basket- 
ball"; to the men who play here, 
without financial aid, only spirit- 
ual aid and help they receive 
from the teachers; to the girls of 
these men who have shared their 
happiness at winning a game, 
and their disappointment and 
heart-break when they lost; to 
these people it was a successful 
season. And, a ten-eleven record 
is nothing to be ashamed of. Four 
games could have gone either 
way but, unfortunately for Mil- 
ligan. they went the other way. 
However, not a single man will be 
lost by graduation; and with new 
freshman talent coming, the Buf- 
faloes of '53-'54 should be ready 
to stampede the opposition once 
more as in the past. 

These men deserve all the rec- 
ognition they can get, because 
basketball, although a game, 
takes a terrific toll on the men 
who play. This paper cannot at- 
tempt to give them all the recog- 
nition they deserve, and all we 
can say is "Good job, men! Well 

We want to give recognition 
especially to those men who were 
the ones to carry the front of the 
attack. Those were the first six 
men, and here are their scoring 

This covers the 21-game season: 

Barton— 238 points 

Burgett— 216 points 

Dickey — 311 points 

Gaslin — 188 points* 

Greer— 260 points 

Roush— 185 points. 

•Gashn only played in 13 
games before he fractured his 
wrist. Looks like the old num- 
ber 13 jinx had him. Joe Dickey 
ended up as highest scorer, with 
Sam Greer taking second highest; 
with Barton, Burgett, Gaslin. and 
Roush in htat order. 

Barton played his best game- 
as far as points are concerned — 
against Emory and Henry when 
he tallied twenty - two points. 
Greer tickled the tassels for nine- 
teen points against Maryville to 
make that game his highest scor- 
ing game. Dickey poped the cords 
for twenty-five points against 
Emory and Henry to make that 
game his highest scoring game. 
Burgett hooked for twenty-three 
points against Maryville to make 
that his highest game. Roush 
needled the net lor nineteen 
points against Maryville to col- 
lect his highest scoring game, 
Gaslin bombarded the hoop with 
twenty-six points again Austin 
Peay to notch that one as his 
highest scoring one. 

These men, and you. might have 
ideas about which game was the 
best and which game they played 

the best in, but this is merely 
their points as scored in a single

So there is one consolation af- 
ter aU, the Buffaloes — through 
their overall record — did outscore 
the opposition! 

And now. with the regular sea- 
son out of the way, the Buffaloes 
got tournament fever, so on Feb- 
ruary 19, 1953, the Buffaloes 
journey to Clarksville, Tennes- 
see, to participate in the VSAC 
tourney benig held in the Austin 
Peay fieldhouse. The Buffaloes 
met Austin Peay State in the first 
game of the tourney, but the 
Governors knocked the Milligan 
Men out with a 92-76 score. The 
Buffaloes could never hit their 
hot streak, as it seemed the odds 
were against them as a jeering 
crowd and physically handicap- 
ped (blind) referees added to the 
discomfort of the team. In this 
game Greer scored 10; Burgett 
went wild with 22; Dickey re- 
bounded for 13; Roush set for 10; 
and Barton drove for 15. Inci- 
dently, Greer and Dickey were 
named to the SMAC first ten. 

With the tournament lever still 
in their blood the Buffaloes next 
went to Jefferson City. Tennessee 
to take part in the SMAC tour- 
ney. The Buffaloes hit a red-hot 
L. M. U. team in the first game 
which sent Milligan home on the 
first night. Men for L. M. U., who 
probably never even thought 
about shooting before, hit the 
bucket that night with amazing 
accuracy. The tournament jinx 
was on also, and the Buffaloes, 
although they hit a hot streak in 
the third quarter, never could get 
going- Tournament nerves. I 
guess, out the men profited by the 
experience and will be gunning 
for the opposition next year for 
sure. In this tournament Greer 
scored 11; Burgett tallied 11; 
Dickey bounced the boards for 11 
points; Roush stripped the nets 
for 14; Barton also unclothed the 
nets for 9. 

Their total tournament record 
gives Greer 21; Burgett 35; 
Dickey 24; Roush 24; and Barton 

Well, this winds up this year's 
season in basketball. Hope you'U 
give these boys the credit that's 
due them, and be around next 
year, if you can. and watch the 
Buffaloes really ROLL! 

All-School Picnic 
Howling Success 

(Continued From Page One) 
'Em Out By The Dozen" Oaks, 
catcher; Art "Speedy" Edwards, 
lef field; and Ray "Home-Run 
King" Stahl, "Duck" BVown ask- 
ed for a furlough from his Army 
base to play with the faculty at 
this annual affair, and he handled 
first base like a veteran. (Inci- 
dentally, Duck is a former stu- 
dent of Milligan and has had two 
years experience on Milligan's 
baseball team. It was sure good 
to see Duck around again.) Jim 
"Errorless" Fox was on third 
base; Jack Dixon piddled around 
^U over the place; Pat "Take 
Five" Hand roamed the center- 
field pasture. Fred "Evil-EIye" 
Whitaker was behind the plate 
calling the balls and strikes. (The 
way he called them, it's doubtful 
whether he'll pass this year or 
not.) The student's team was 
comprised mostly of the 3rd floor 
"Wildcats," with such notables as 
"Old-Man River" LindeU; Tommy 
Hawks; BiU Cast-iron; "Slim^' 
Stallard; and other outstanding 
performers. The battle went hqok 
and claw until the bottom of the 
sixth inning when the students 
finaUy deciphered Duard Wal- 
ker's "crazy ball" and started 


At the beginning of the base- 
ball season things were looking 
up for Milligan's squad. We 
thought we had two fine pitchers 
for the basebaU wars, in Dana 
Cox and Herb GiUen. We were 
looking for a catcher also, but 
Joe Dickey, Jim Fox and Harry 
Bibb soon put an end to Coach 
Walker's search. In the other po- 
sitions we had a veteran back 
from last year in every position 
except left field, which was taken 
over by Don WiUiams and Jim 
Burgett, with Don having the 
slight edge. Adding to the out- 
field positions were Frank Hakws 
and George Davis, who assisted 
Red Lyons and Jim Fletcher. 
Around the infield, starting at 
first base, were Tom Hawks, lb; 
Fred Whitaker, 2b; Don Taylor, 
and Pete Miller at ss; and last, 
but by no means least, Leonard 
Gallimore at 3rd. With this team, 
there should have been a wnning 
team, but you can't expect one 
pitcher to win all of the games 
and have to pitch two and some- 
times three times a week. 
Dana Cox was ruled ineligible by 
the administration, thus forcing 
Herb to more than his share. Al- 
tering out of the ineligibUity of 
Cox it seems as if the team went 
to pieces, not giving Herb the 
kind of support they were capable. 
Man for man, the squad was bet- 
ter than any other team in the 
Smoky Conference, but they just 
couldn't seem to get to working 
together until it was too late. 

As the season went on and the 
team continued their losing ways, 
and Kerb's arm grew tiieder anci 
tireder, something had to be done. 
Just whenever Jim Burgett and 
Jack Dixon started to learn about 
pitching part of the game, Jhrj 
Fox, starting catcher, lore a car- 
tiledge in his knee and had to 
be replaced, Jim's strong throw- 
ing arm was missed considerably 
by thr. team, but Joe and Harry 
did a good job of replacing him. 

The season went on and Milli- 
gan still hasn't won a game. But 
on Wednesday, the 20th of May. 
Herb will have plenty of 
rest and Jim Fox's knee is well 
enough to play the team should 
put away their equipment with 
win. There is just one cry com- 
ing out of the dressing room and 
that is BEAT STATE!!!! So good 
luck boys and I say BEAT

riding that rock. "Dizzy" Dean 
Sahli came in and somehow man- 
aged to put out the fire. How- 
ever, the students now had the 
faculty at a disadvantage as the 
faculty was on the short end of a 
20-9 score. But. the faculty came 
back in grand style and when the 
smoke of battle had cleared, the 
faculty were on the long end of a 
25-20 score. But. the students 
came back again to win the ball 
game with Glenn Cunningham 
winning the game with a bases 
loaded homerun . . . Everyone 
went home after that. But. we all 
ate and had a good time nt the 
all-school picnic, and we'U bo 
wainting for the annual grudge 
battle next year. 


The only thing about the tracV; 
team that can be said is probably 
"at least MiUigan was represented 
on the cinders." True! MiUigan 
was represented in track by a 
number of men — each playing his 
part. These men had intestinal 
fortitude (guts) to run track. If 
you have ever been associated 
with track, you will undersatnd. 
These men trained, some longer 
than others, and some not at all, 
but came the day of the meet and 
everyone was trying, 

The track team had two track 
meets — both with Mars Hill Jr. 
College — and both times were de- 
feated. However, the men had 
fun and enjoyed the friendship of 
of the students there and really 
received something although they 
didn't win. 

This is a summation of both 
meets: Joe Dickey was top man 
in points as he swept 4 first places 
and tied first place with Gaslin 
in the high jump and tied second 
with Mars HiU for second in the 
high jump. Sam "The Arm" 
Greer threw the javelin and putt 
the shot for a total of six points. 
Bub Gaslin ran the 100-yd. dash 
and 220-yd. dash and high jump- 
ed for a total of 9 points. Red 
"Jumping Jack" Lyons won the 
broad jump the first time with a 
tremendous leap of 20'3" and the 
second time with a leap of 19'6". 
He also placed 3rd both times in 
the 100-yd. dash and 220-yd. dash, 
which gave him a total of 16 
points. Glenn Barton was another 
"jumping jack" as he placed in 
the pole vault and received first 
place in the high jump in the 
first meet and placed again in the 
pole vault and high jump in the 
second meet, Jim Fox put the 
shot, threw the javelin, and hurl- 
ed the discus in both meets; how- 
ever, he only placed in the Zna 
meet to take 4^/z points. Don 
Williams placed in the 880-yd. 
dash to receive 2 points; Fred 
Whitaker and Pat Hand received 
2 points each in the 440-yd, dash. 
Wally Johnson took 2 points in 
the two mile. 

There were other men who ran. 
but didn't place; but nevertheless, 
they tried and gave the best they 
had. Every boy on the squad en- 
tered into more than one event — 
some as many as five events, but 
this record is for the boys that 

E laced. We don't classify these 
cys that didn't place as "also 
ran' , but; rather as the boys that 
reaUy tried hard to win. These 
were George Davis, Glenn Cun- 
ningham, Jim DeVault, Dick 
Koeber, Tom Hawes, and Tom 

This was a successful season 
only in the fact that Milligan had 
a track team. This took interest 
on the part of the men who par- 
ticipated and the coach. Duard 
Walker, who promoted the idea 
in the first place. 

To these men who tried so hard 
and gained so little, we say, 
thanks. Men." for at least Iry- 


The tennis team this year did 
not do very weU. due to lack of 
experience for the most part. 
They won one match and tied 
one. At Mars Hill, the boys all 
came from behind to win their 
matches and to win the match it- 
self, 5-4. The tie was with Tus- 
culum at home. Both teams won 
4 matches apiece and the match 
lay !n ;he hands of the No. 1 
doubles team of Phil Roush and 
Dog Morehead. This author has 
never seen a more determined 
pair. The score of the first set 
was 13-U in favor of MiUigan. 
while they lost the 2nd set. Then 
with the 3rd set tied with 4 games 
each, the rains came and ended 
it with the match all tied up. 

Besides having Phil Roush as 
No. 1 and Doug Morehead as No. 
3, the team consisted of Grant 
Layman. No. 2; Leonard Galli- 
more. No 4; Tom Hawks. No. 5; 
and Wally Jnhnson, No. 6. Round- 
ing out the team, were RoUie 
Nagle and Al Blevins. who show- 
ed a very determined spirit. 

The individual records are not 
available now so this editor would 
like to say to the tennis team: 
"WeU done, boys!" and as the 
old saying goes, "We'U get 'em 
next scnicsler." 

Milligan's Man 
Of The Year 


Coach Walker would be at a big 
loss, in hi5 busy schedule with- 
out the help of someone who is 
just as interested in athletics as 
Coach himself. This someone, 
this person who has an equaUy 
important job in the athletic de- 
partment and who has as equally 
full a schedule as anyone else at 
Milligan College is my candidate 
for Milligan's Man of the Year; 
He is Bob WiUiams, manager of 
the Buffalo's bal] teams, basket- 
ball. basebaU, and tennis; friend 
of athlete and fan alike. 

As manager of the Buffaloes, 
Bob has taken a terrific interest 
in everything that is connected 
with keeping the team in shape; 
the equipment and the player. 
Everyday of basketbaU season. 
Bob could usually be found in 
the afternoons at Cheek gymna- 
sium. He was there to open the 
cage for practice; he was there to 
issue fresh equipment; he was 
there to wrap an ankle, rub a sore 
muscle, or to crack a joke. Many 
a night. Bob has stayed in the 
dressing room, labeling socks 
shorts and T-shirts, cleaning the 
balls, and at least once this year, 
painted the dressing room floor. 
On the side. Bob has managed to 
carry a fuU schedule with two 
lab periods a week. 

Bob, a sophomore, after grad- 
uation from Radford High School 
Radford, Virginia, in 1945, spent 
a year in the army. He is a Phy- 
sical Education major with 
science as a minor. During the 
summers he has been taking 
classes at Radford CoUege. 

There have been manv amusing 
incidents in Bob's career as a 
manager, such as tl:e time he was 
mistaken for Coach. This is a re- 
sult of his habit of dressing so 

AU year Bob was kidded about 
the possibiUty of forgetting the 
balls or uniforms on a roatf trip, 
so he always made it a point to 
double-check the cage before 
leaving. On one trip. Bob evident- 
ly had something else on his 
(he never did say what); any- 
way, the team dressed out and 
started to go up for warm-up. 
When asked for the warm-up 
suits. Bob slapped his head and 
said, "Doggone it! AU the way 
down I felt that we left some- 
theing!" He had forgotten the 
warm-up suits! 

All in aU, though. Bob has done 
a wonderful job with the Buffa- 
loes. This is to let him know 
that his work has not gone un- 
noticed. On behalf of the team, 
Bob: Thank you very much.

Familiar Trouble 

Two old and very dignified gen- 
tlemen were conversing in the 
lounge of their club. 

"Familiarity can certainly cause 
a lot of trouble," said one. 

"Is that so?" inquired the oth- 

"Yes," related the first "My 
cousin Harry once permitted the

On March 20, 1951, President Dean E. Walker announced 
in the chapel service a proposal to erect a new student 
union building through the use of volunteer student labor. 
This announcement climaxed weeks of extensive planning. 

Here is the story of the idea 
up to the point of Dr. Walker's 
announcement: T,

their spontaneous response 
placed the final stamp of ap- 
proval on the venture. 

Of course the completion of 
a student conceived and built

lems. The greatest of these is 
the acquiring of adequate fi- 
nancial and material aid to in-

Furnishing adequate facilities for students, alumni and 
faculty activities. 

■^ It will afford opportunity for Belf-expresslon: 

Providing an outlet through which students, alumni, 
and friends of the college can participate personally to- 
ward a greater Milligan. 

ic It will add to the great tradition of Milligan: 

Standing as a lasting monument to the united efforts of 
a student body, who visualize this building not merely 
as an addition to campus facilities but rather symbolic 
of the indomitable spirit of Milligan. 

■^ It will present an endless challenge to all who follow: 
The spirit which motivated this effort and the manner 
in which it was achieved will present a lasting challenge 
to a future Milligan. 

Hyder And McCracken 
To Head Construction 

Prof, Sam Hyder has been 
selected by the Student Coun- 
cil as the General Building Su- 
perintendent for the Student 
Union project, and Dean E. 
McCracken, Maintenance Super- 
intendent of the college, has 
been appointed as Construction 

by groups of students, directed 
and co-ordinated by the Student 

With full confidence in this 
undertaking the students ex- 
press their earnest hope that 
the friends of Milligan every- 
where will share in the realiza- 
tion of this dream. 

Virginia Legislator 
First To Contribute 
To Building Fund 

Ted Dalton. Virginia State 
Senator and a resident of Rad- 
ford, Va., became the first con- 
tributor to the Student Union 
Building Fund when he present- 
ed his check for one hundred 
dollars to T. P. Jones. 

Mr. Dalton, although a grad- 
uate of William and Mary, has 
watched with keen interest the 
activities at Milligan. taking 
particular delight in being able 
to participate In this venture. 


Dean E. Walkor, Preiident Mil- 
ligan CoUegs: 
"The proposed arrangement for 
the Student Body itself to give 
Milligan College a much needed 
addition to its facilities, has 
given me the greatest satisfac- 
tion of anything that has hap- 
pened during my administra- 
tion. One of the best contribu- 
tions to the campus that I can 
think of is Just the sort of build- 
ing that is being proposed. It 
will solve many oodol prob- 
lems. It will give added space 
for necessary activities. It will 
help greatly in serving the 
alumni as they return in In- 
creasing numbers to the cam- 
pus. The idea of the building 
being constructed by the labor 
of the students shows that the 
Milligan spirit Is still as vigor- 

ous in 1951 as it was before the 
turn of the centry. I believe that 
this is the most significant 
movement that has been under- 
taken here for many years." 
Mr. Frank Hannah, Chalimani 
Board of Tnutfrei 

'The Board of Trustees of 
Milligan College is unanimously 
in favor of this fine project 
This is the greatest thing that 
has happened to Milligan Col- 
lege and we are backing the 
students to the fullest, even 
helping ourselves if It be neces- 
sarj'. This is a great project In 
that it wlU unite the student 
body in an effort in which we 
are wholeheartedly in favor.." 
Oris Hyder. Presldentt Alumni 

"A student union is something 
that Milligan has needed for as 

Student Union Project 
Cost Estimate S15,000 

Since the initial presentation 
of the proposed plan to construct 
a student-built Student Union, 
and its immediate acceptance, 
many new developments have 
been materializing relative to 
this tremendous undertaking. 

The Student Council has been 
busUy engaged in setting up the 
framework whereby the entire 
program will be guided to its 
successful conclusion, the pro- 
ducing of a Student Union, fi- 
nanced and built through the 
efforts of a student body. A five 
committee setup has been form- 
ed to handle everj- aspect of 
the entire program. These com- 
mittees include; Building and 
Coordinating, Publicity. Finance, 
Alumni, and Labor, each being 
composed of students and a fac- 
ulty advisor. 

The finance plan devised in 
order to underwrite the pro- 
gram will be primarily based 
on a solicitation campaign, aim- 
ed at reaching alumni and 
friends of Milligan In this can- 
vassing by the students, dona- 
tions of money or construction 
material will be invited. 

A huge portion of the labor 
involved in the actual construc- 
tion of the unit will be furnished 
by Milligan students. Through 
this plan of student labor a con- 
siderable reduction in the total 
cost of the building will be 

The proposed structure has 
been carefully planned with 
both present and future needs 
considered. Plans call for a two 
unit structure, built of brick 
and designed to fit into the gen- 
eral architectural plan of the 
campus. One unit will include 
such facilities as a soda foun- 
tain, booths, sandwich grill, 
modern kitchen, and provision 
for the sale of school supplies 
and sundry items. The second 
unit will provide adequate facil- 
ities for banquets, socials, club 
meetings, and in general become 
the center of student and alum- 
ni affairs. Additional features 
of this unit will include a fire 
place at the east end of the 
room, and at the west extrem- 
ity, huge windows will domi- 
nate, affording an unobstructed 
view of Buffalo Mountain. A 
full sized basement will be pro- 
vided that will contain recrea- 
tional equipment, a lounge, rest 
rooms and a heating plant. 

The emphasis on producing a 
low cost structure will be strict- 
ly adhered to, however ever%* ef- 
fort will be made to construct 
a unit that will be adequate in 
every detail, taking its place 
among the other colorful land- 
marks on the Milligan campus. 

far back as I can remember. It 
is something from which the 
students of Milligan can derive 
much benefit. I feel that the 
student body is to be commend- 
ed for their bravery in under- 
taking such a tremendous task. 
I shall watch their progress 
with keen interest" 
Prof. Sam Hyder, General Build- 
ing Superintendent: 

"This is certainly a much 
needed addition. I am confident 
that the effort will succeed."

choice — unless he belongs to 
someone else — for a date. In 
fact, you may ask him for as 
many times as you care to do so, 
but just like anything else, there 
is a catch to it. You have to pay 
for both your date and yourself, 
That IS even more expensive than 
"going dutch" but it has its ad-

&S well as the motorist, so please 
read this over carefully: 


I. — Cars owned by dorm stu- 
dents are not to be driven to Ad 
building unless parked behind 
said building. 

2 — Day students are to park 
in parking lot at College Store. 

3. — Faculty and guests are to

petitive examinatoin for its Col- 
lege Training Program has been 
scheduled for December 12. 1953, 
and will be open to high school 
seniors or graduates within the 
age requirements. Successful can- 
didates will start their Naval 
careers in Colleges and univer- 
sities across the country in 1954 
with substantia! financial assis- 
tance. Qualified graduates will be 
commissioned in the Regular 
Navy or Marine Corps and will 
enter the Fleet as well-trained 
junior officers, taking their 
places alongside young officers 
from other outstanding colleges 
of the country and the United 
States Naval Academy. 

The program is open to male 
citizens of the United States be- 
tween the ages of 17 and 21, and 
quotas have been assigned to each 
state and territory on the basis of 
its high school population. Those

To promote school spirit, good sportsmanship, and 
iair play, with a emphasis on Christian Education 


We, the staff of the STAMPEDE, extend a cordial 
"welcome to" — and "welcome back" — to Milligan. It 
appears that this year at Milligan is going to provide 
opportunities that we have not had before. There will 
be club meetings, parties, basketball games, and various 
other activities that you should take delight in and also 
participate in. There are several clubs on the campus 
that invite your membership and the STAMPEDE is 
one of those organizations. Its membership is open to 
freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors alike. We in- 
vite you to become a member of this organization 
either as a staff member or by submitting copy for press 
whenever you have something "hot." These positions 
are open for you: reporting, proofreading, copywriter, 
feature writing, and circulation. Please express your 
desire to join the staff to the editor. 

Also, all clubs and other departmental organizations 
are invited to submit copy for printing whenever the 
occasion occurs that you have copy for print. A special 
. reporter or your publicity chairman should do this. 
Just have the copy in on the deadline, which is posted 
on the bulletin each month. 

The faculty is invited to submit copy for press also 
whenever interesting activities occur in your group 
throughout the year. 

May I say in closing, that the STAMPEDE is the stu- 
dent paper of Milligan College. Therefore, it is a pub- 
lication for and by students and it is your job to sup- 
port this paper and make sure it makes the "deadline" of 
each month. It is not easy working on a newspaper, but 
the knowledge and understanding of facts and people 
that you receive from this organization is well worth 
your effort. 

Education makes a people easy to lead but difficult to 
drive; easy to govern, but impossible to enslave. 

— Lord Brougham. 


PARTICIPATION—what does it mean to you? Engag- 
ing in an ahtletic event? Working on the school paper 
or annual? Joining in a class discussion? Yes, all of these 
are acts of participation. But this in itself is not what 
is meant by that word. 

Funk and Wagnalls' Standard College Dictionary de- 
fines participation as: the state or act of sharmg in com- 
mon with others. This would seem to imply that it is 
more than just the act of playing the game, but rather 
the way in which you play the game, the attitude you 
have towards it. Thus, whether or not you participate 
in life depends upon whether or not you share what you 
have with your fellow-man. 

This does not necessarily mean that you must share 
only your material things, but in effect, every thing which 
you are. To do something for t^e common good of all 
would be one way of phrasing it. It follows that college 
is not only a testing ground of how one is to participate 
in life, but also a means to develop and enlarge the means 
by which one may participate in life more fully. 

Taking the latter aspect first, it would be well to point 
out that as one is here to learn how to do whatever his 
choice of vocation is, one should avail oneself of every 
opportunity to learn of the practical side of that voca- 
tion as well as the theoretical side which he learns in 
the classroom. Thus if you are entering the teaching 
profession, talk over your plans with one of your pro- 
fessors, preferably the one in your field. If you are plan- 
ning on a medical career, try to work in a hospital or 
some such institution. Or if you feel a journalistic urge, 
learn all you can about newspaper work, if only in the

Note: In a series of articles. I 
am going to write the truth about 
Communism, as I see it. I am do- 
ing this for three reasons: 

CD Communism is the great- 
est single influence on life m the 
20th Century because, in its 
struggle with other ideologies, 
there is danger that civilization 
may even be wiped out. There- 
fore. 1 think It IS of the utmost 
importance that everyona know 
something of this opposing force 
— its history, how it operates, the 
methods it is using to conquer 
the world, and how far it has 
progressed toward the goal of 
world-wide Communism. 

(2) Communism is anti-Chris- 
tian. In this sense it is another 
type of enemy and its nature 
should be made known. 

(3) The picture painted of 
Communism has often been one- 
sided. For example, in the Milli- 
gan College Library, there are 
about thirty books on Russian 
Communism and Communist-So- 
cialist theory. Twenty of these 
books are more or less favorable 
to Communism. Five are anti- 
Communist, while the other five 
present both views and are not 
definite on their position. This is 
not brought up to criticize the li- 
brary, but to point out that if a 
student reads a book on Commun- 
ism, the chances are four to one 
that this book would favor Com- 
munism. And it is not impossible 
that this book would influence 
the student's attitude toward 
Communism, especially if the stu- 
dent had no strong pohtical con- 
victions before hand. This con- 
dition which has probably beeo 
brought about by library policy 
in years past, was not intended to 
exist, I am sure. But it is indi- 
cative of an attitude which exists 
in our country as a whole. This 
is why 1 think the "anti" view of 
Communism should be presented. 

This description of Communism 
is written from the viewpoint of 
one who believes that all men 
should enjoy certain rights and 
more than this they have certain 
responsibilities to carry out. It 
cannot be said, then .that this 
description is unbiased. 

The Ideas Of Karl Marx 

Karl Marx, a German writer, 
has been called the "Father of 
Communism." He wrote in 1848: 
The Communist Manifesto, which 
has been called "the Communist 
Bible." Among the different 
theories he presented, the most 
important was a thing called the 
class struggle. This theory con- 
tained two basic ideas. First, he 
maintained that the proletariat 
(working class) was continually 
suppressed by the bourgeoisie 
(capitahsts). As time passed, cap- 

ital would become concentrated 
in the hands of a few; competi- 
tion would disappear, the rich 
would become richer, and poor 
would sink deeper into poverty. 

In the second phase of this 
struggle, the workers would rise 
up in a great revolution and 
throw off the chains of capital- 
ism. A completely new society 
would then develop, in which 
there would be no classes; in fact, 
everyone would be equal. In this 
Utopia, everything would be own- 
ed in common by ever>*one, pro- 
duction would be carried on for 
use instead of profit, and. since 
men were living together in a co- 
operative society, all need foe 
government would disappear. 

Here, in Marx's own words, is 
his fundamental idea of Com- 
munism: "The theory of the Com- 
munists may be summed up in 
the single sentence: Abolition of 
private property." 
Tha Development of Communtim 

As we can see. Marx was not 
a very good prophet. The work- 
ing class has not revolted against 
the capitalists. Capitalism stood, 
and is standing, the test. When 
his followers became aware of 
this /act, they decided that priv- 
ate property and capitalism must 
be abohshea and a Utopia set up 
by a different method. It was this 
question of methods that caused a 
split in the followers of Marx in 
the late 1800's. There were the 
conservatives, who favored or- 
ganizing political parties and es- 
tablishing a Utopian state by 
democratic means in their respec- 
tive countries. They called them- 
selves socialists. This movement 
IS still gonig strong today; there 
are the Socialist parties, such as 
the British Labor Party, and 
there are also movements which 
are not so obvious, such as the 
supporters of a "welfare state" in 
this country. 

The radical branch of the 
Marxian Communists favored 
using tactics which would bring 
about quicker and more effective 
results. Moreover, they advocated 
Communism should be on a 
world-wide basis — not just in 
each country. These radicals call- 
ed themselves Communists and, 
of course, Soviet Russia today ex- 
emplifies the results of their ef- 

Thus, it is evident that the basic 
principle of Marx's teachings still 
exist today. It is also plain thai 
the two movements. Socialism 
and Communism — though be;aring 
different names and sometimes 
appearing to be wholly different 
in objective — have a common aim 
and are. in fact, the same thing.

to submit his verse. There is no 
limitation as to form or theme. 
Shorter works are preferred by

In iy52, some 20.000 mss. were 
received in the college competi-

COLLEGE in the country. 

There are absolutely NO FEES 
or CHARGES for either accep- 
tance or submission of verse. AU 
work will be judged on merit

ASSN.. 3210 Selby Ave.. Los

ities, you must make sure beforehand that you are go- , 
jng to be in a field which you will enjoy. 

As for the point that College is the testing ground for 
the manners in which you will participate in life, allow 
me to say just one thing; there is a right and wrong way 
to go about it. As each person lives differently from his 
neighbor, and as every one places a different emphasis 
upon various things, for one to say precisely that one 
way of living here at Milligan is better than any other 
would be ridiculous. 

Most of us at one time or another have heard from 
some well-meaning individual that to have a well-round- 
ed personality and to avoid being a misfit one must de- 
velop along four lines: Physical, Mental, Social, and 
Spiritual. But each time we hear it, the tendency is to 
say "so what?" The only thing wrong with that atti- 
tude is that the "well-meaning individual" is usually 
right. If one neglects any one of these fields, it hinders 
his capacity to participate. 

This writer is in no way obligated to Milligan College 
from a financial standpoint, so don't think that he is just 
giving another pep talk in favor of it because of that 
reason. But it is true that Milligan's program offers suf- 
ficient variety so that none of these aspects are ignored. 
Thus, one may participate in sports, in classroom discus- 
sions, in religious activities, and in the various functions 
of the school's social life in whatever manner he desires. 
Each and every student at Milligan has something to 
contribute to the other students, whether it be because of 
a musical talent, playing basketball or baseball, working 
on the school paper or annual, leading devotions, cheer- 
ing at the ball games, or working on the Student Union 
building, or just tielng around to say a cheerful word. 

In these various ways each of us is participating. 
Each helps to make college life more worthwhile to 
himself and to the rest of the students. Each has helped 
to be a part of Milligan. —JIM HAWES.

Magazine Views 
American Women, 
Inside And Out 

The October issue of MADEM- 
OISELLE magazine takes a good 
look at the American woman, in- 
side (who she is. what she thinks, 
where she's going) and out Cwhat 
she wears and where she buys it 
to achieve her highly individual, 
made-to-order look). 

The modern young woman's 
doubts and confusions about her 
femininity are discussed by Mark 
Benney in "Who Is She?" "It is 
precisely in America," the author 
says, "where women have enjoyed 
more freedom than elsewhere, 
that the difficulties of adjust- 
ment are most poignantly felt." 
He asks, "Can she accept the 
many and sometimes conflicting 
tasks society has imposed on her 
and forge from them a aingle 
stable self?" His answers mdicate 
that out of her uncertainties the 
modern young woman is shaping 
a new femininity. 

The story of one young Ameri- 
can woman who. on her own, 
found herself unable to make the 
adjustment of which Mr. Benney 
speaks is told by Lorna Slocombe. 
In "Should You Be Psychoan- 
alyzed?" Miss Slocombe details 
her own case history, from the 
time she went to the psychoan- 
alyst's office burdened with 
worry and depression, to the end, 
when she emerged confident ol 
her ability to make a happier life 
for herself. Her vivid personal 
account of her analysis is a 
striking example of how modern 
science can help the modern wo-

PRisuexT's orrics 

The users of the Milligan Col- 
lege Library are noting a u.-finite 
trend toward a more efficient ar- 
rangement of the available facil- 
ities in relation to usability. Un- 
der the leadership of the new Li- 
brarian. John W. Neth, Jr., and 
his staff of several Student as- 
sistants, books are being rear- 
ranged, shelves are being reset, 
periodicals are relocated and the 
general arrangement and atmo- 
sphere of the fibrary is taking on 
an air of interest. 

Not only has there been change 
in location of books, periodicals 
and reference material, but these 
changes have been accompanied 
by correspondingly necessary 
rules. As yet a set of rules has 
not been published and therefore 
just a few will be given here: 

1 Reference books, both indi- 
vidual titles and volumes in sets 
do not circulate, This means that 
they cannot be checked out but 
must be used in the librarj' dur- 
ing normal library hours. 

2. Periodicals, magazines, and 
other library continuation mater- 
ial does not circulate and there- 
fore must be used in the library 
as reference tools. 

3. The bringing of soft drinks 


1. Main Library Room 

a. Librarian's desk and 

b. Card Catalog, 

c. Circulation desk and 
Reserve Shelf. 

(Class 000 to 699, ex- 
,cept 20O's) 

2. Reference Room 
(General Reference Books, 

Biographies and Classes 
900 and 700) 

3. Periodical Room

b. Bound Periodicals 

c. Fiction

(200's and 80O's) 

5. Storage and Rare Books 

namely cokes, into the library is 

4. Return of circulated books 
on or before the due date will be 
e.xpected. Fines will be levied. 
In extreme violations, permission 
to draw books from the library 
will have to come after inter 
view with the Librarian. 

5. The last resort in any re 
search problem is seeking the as- 
sistance of the Librarian. The 
Card Catalog, the encyclopedia 

and dictionaries, the special ref- 
erence collection and periodical 
indexes, and then finally cor\sutt 
the Librarian. However,, no one 
should leave the library without 
an answer to the question at hand 
until all the above have been con- 

6, The Librarian or any assist- 
ant will explain any procedure on 
request. Do not hesitate to ask. 
These represent a few rules 
only. The library ip not a morgue, 
nor a rumpus room. Students may 
discuss subjects relative to their 
search but should hold other dis- 
cussions outside the limits of the 

The use of the library is an 
important factor in the process of 
education. Students are urged to 
make use of its facilities. These 
will be expanded and developed 
as time and facilities permit. The 
library Is the hub about which 
the academic wheel of education 
turns. It is as much a tool in the 
process of gaining knowledge as 
is any other individual tool in 
that program. Study the diagram 
of Milligan College Library and 
come and use it as often as time 
permits. It is your Library- and 
will grow in usefulness to the ex- 
tent it is utilized by Milligan Stu- 

Christian Service 
Week Brings To 
Light Successes 

The week c[ October 12th to 
ICth was designated CHRISTIAN 
SERVICE WEt.K at Milligan Col- 
lege. It IS an attempt to call at- 
tention to the opportunities of 
ser\'ice to Jesus Christ through 
the various business and profes- 
sional services that Milligan stu- 
dents are now preparing for. 

Reasonable Christian Service! 
"I beseech you therefore, 
brethren, by the mercies of 
God, to present your bodies a 
living sacrifice, holy, acceptable 
to God, which is your reason- 
able service." (Romans 12:1). 

There were five special 
chapel addresses from . various 
Christian business and profession- 
al men relative to the theme of 
the week. The speakers were: 

Monday October 12 — Howard 
McCorkle of the Johnson City 
Public School System. 

Tuesday, October 13 — Olin Hay. 
Minister of the South Louisville 
Christian Church, Louisville. 

Wednesday. October 14 — Lt, 
Col. D. W. Love, formerly of the 
U. S. Army; now in reserve. At- 
present, Assistant Supply Officer 
at the Veterans' Administration, 
Mountain Home. 

Thursday, October 15 — OrviUe 
Stevens of the Goodale Abstract 
Co.. Angola, Indiana. 

Friday, October 16— Ed Stohler, 
Manager of Memorial Hospital of 
Johnson City, Tenn. 

Last year this u-eek was called 
the "Week of the Mmisln.-" and 
was conducted in the same way. 
There will be no night meetings 
this year, at least this was the de- 
cision as we go to press. 

The chapel periods for the 
week will be 50 minutes long. Op- 
portunities- for questions and dis- 
cussion will be offered. 

This "Week of Christian Ser- 
vice" is not only for those enter- 
ing the ministry but to those go- 
ing out in the fields of teaching, 
coaching and medicine. It is 
meant to interest each student at 
Milligan — a Christian institution. 



"We may be using the first 
floor (of the Student Union 
Building) before the Christmas 
holidays." is the most recent news 
from Professor Sam J. Hyder. 
who has been continually work- 
ing for the completion of the cen- 
terpiece of the campus. 

Recently the exterior roof gut- 
ters were installed; at present the 
Scruggs Equipment Company of 
Knoxville is preparing an esti- 
mate for the cost of the kitchen 
equipment; and sponsors arc be- 
ing secured to purchase the 
twelve sets of tables and chairs, 
each costing eighty-two dollars 
and five cents. 

Any church, Bible School class, 
student organization or individ- 
ual sponsoring one of the five- 
piece table-and-chairs sets will 
have attached to the table a 
plaque indicating the donor. 

The floors need to bo sanded 
and the walls are in need of fin- 
ishing but both of these jobs can 
be done as projects of student 
organizations. "Then with the 
completion of the kitchen inter- 
ior, at an expense of three hun- 
dred dollars, the Union will be 
ready to begin operation. 

Alumnus John Hart has prom- 
ised to furnish the lighting sys- 

The kitchen and grill will be 
student operated and will handle 
the usual candy, beverage, and 

short-order lines, :ind Milligan 
stickers and sporting goods. 

The Milligan Student Union 
will function as do others across 
the nation; that it. as the center 
for leisure-time activities, club 
meetings, and banquets. 

The Milligan building is en- 
tirely a student idea. Former 
students T. P. Jones and Randy 
Cooper gave birth to the project 
and worked, many times until 
early morning hours, with the 
erection of a building which they, 
as students, would never gel to 

In April of 1951 President Wal- 
ker gave to the Johnson City 
Press a release making public his 
endorsement of the Union enter- 
prise. 'The announcement, in part, 

"The doctrine of freedom in en- 
terprise is not only taught at 
Milligan College, but is practiced 
by student activities. That is the 
conclusion that must be drawn 
from the recent spontaneous stu- 
dent move to secure u Student 
Union Building. 

"1 would like to record as 
president of the College my pleas-

reply, "but do you think you can

Inhuman Ecpiation 

The professor wrote an In-

blackboard and it seemed to Jim, 
who was at the bottom of tne 
class, that it contained every let-

professor called upon him to ex- 
plain it. He stalled and then fin- 
ally blurted that it was beyond 

"Beyond you?" stormed the 
prof. "I've spent the whole se- 
mester explaining it What excuse 
can you offer for not understand-

"Well," replied the unhappy 
student as he looked at the equa- 
tion again, "I guess I'm just one 
of the unlettered." 

He could neither read nor write, 
but when a distant relation died 
and left him a small fortune he 
started to make a splash. He ac- 
quired a check book, but instead 
of signing his name on checks he 
put two crosses, and the bank 

Then one day he handed the

Higher Education 
Means Freedom 


Your pursuit for higher educa- 
tion IS fundamentally a strategic 
play for a lifetime of freedom. 
When you find truth you become 
free through the overcoming of 
the obstacles of ignorance. 

Just last week. Nathan Marsh 
Pusey began his duties as Har- 
vard s fourth new president since 
1869. Pusey. age 46. says that to 
him it is an "obvious truth that 
the intellectual life of an individ- 
ual is colored by his convictions, 
and that having some kind of 
faith, good or tiad, is inescapable. 

Most people have gone through 
college without having had call- 
ed to their attention the great 
treasures of religious experience." 

The new Harvard president al- 
so has some important ideas con- 
cerning our American culture and 
our interlectual experiences, 

"American culture." he says. 
"as young people grow up in it, 
is not maliing them excited about 
ideas. The good Lord gave them 
intelligence and vitality: it must 
therefore be the supplementary 
work of teachers to lead them 
somehow into a world where 
ideas are exciting. Early in the 
college career, you have to make 
intellectual experience come 

"Formal education has first to 
make young people see that the 
values they have abstorbed almost 
automatically from their culture 
are not necessarily the highest 
values. Youn^ people must be- 
come dlisalUfied with the culture 
they accept and this is why it is 
neccssarj' first to start revolu- 
tions in their minds and spirits." 

A youngster was recently call- 
ed upon by his father to account 
for some unsatisfactor>' school 
grades. He launched his own in- 
quisition as youngsters will do. 
much to his father's embarrass- 
ment: "Daddy, were they caused 
by heredity or environment?" 

Each one of us lives in a rath- 
er email world, the limitations of 
which arc cither extended or con- 
fined by the combustion each of 
us accelerates within his own 
mental and enviroruncntal cylin- 
ders. The truth is ever-present 
but is there within us the present 
desire for freedom?

The Josephus Hopwood Chap-

America held their installation 
Service in Hardin Hall Tuesday, 
October G, This was the first 
meeting of the club for the new 
year and thirty-two future teach- 
ers were present. 

The new officers were installed 
by Sally Greer, the retiring pres-

Betty Jeanne Snodgrass — presi-

Suzanne Rowe — treasurer; Gert 
Archer — librarian, and Mary Jane 
Kincheloe — historian. Then the 
entire group stood and repeated 
together the Purposes of the Fu-

ment. These six purposes are 
found in the handwork and ex-

These emphasized the love for 
God and fellow man. A teacher 
needs a sense of humor as well as

and treated as such. Dean Oakes 
expressed his hopes for this 
group and showed them what a 
challenge there is really involved 
in this field of education. 

Following the business meet- 
ing conducted by the new presi- 
dent, refreshments of chocolate 
cake and cokes were served. 


Intramuial football is racing 
along at a lively clip with all 
teams showing a great deal of 
enthusiasm. This step-up in play- 
er and also fan interest could be 
traced to the fact that this year 
the teams are divided into state 
(or states) outfits instead of the 
usual methods of selection. 

At this writing the combined 
forces of Ohio and Pennsylvania 
are resting m the league lead, 
closely followed by Virginia 
which has suffered only one loss. 
Tennessee is in third place with 
two wins and two losses and is 
making a bid for the champion- 
ship. Indiana and Illinois are 
holding down the cellar posi- 

By far the most impressive ex- 
hibition of precision passing, un- 
canny passing, and all around 
good play, goes to Jimmy Fox 
and his Tennessee-Kentucky agr 
gregation in their rout of Indi- 
ana to the tune of 33-7. 

We want to take time out to 
extend to Calvin our lieartfelt 
wishes for a speedy recovery and 
return to our Alma Mater. Cal- 
vin was an outstanding basket- 
ball player in high school making 

All-Regional and All-Sectional 
and we all look forward to see- 
ing him in the Orange and Black 
of Coach Walker's Buffs. 

Going out on a limb now. I'll 
say that basketball prospects 
should be on the up this year 
despite such losses from the 
squad as Sam Greer and Joe 
Dickey, who were counted on to 
carry a large part of the hopes 
of Milligan to return to the top 
of the basketball ladder; a posi- 
tion they have been noted for in 
small college circles despite re- 
cent disappointing seasons. 

Several outstanding high school 
players have made Milligan their 
collcee home this year and all in 
all, r predict a good, fast, ball 
club with a good, strong bench. 

Did you know that Miss Mynatt 
is now indulging in the sport 
of golf? Also saw Carolyn Wal- 
ker taking a club around and 
taking an occasional whack at 
the ball the other day! 

Don't know who originated the 
idea of the sweetheart tennis 
tournament this year but I no- 
ticed the duo of Harrison and 
Sweeney on the listl Records for 
this pair are unobtainable at the 
present, but it's understood they 
bring a rare talent to the courts. 

College Concerts 

(Continued From Page One) 
eluded in the program are Schu- 
mann's "Holiday Song"; Verdi's 
"La Donna E Mobile (Rigoletto)"; 
a Gershim fantasy, "Deep River"' 
Richard Rogers' "You'll Never 
Walk Alone," from "Carousel". 
"There Is Nothing Like a Dame,.' 
from "South Pacific"; as well as 
many other delightfully arranged 
numbers. As each member of the 
quartet is a soloist in his own 
right, there will be solos inter- 
spersed in the program. 

Irene And Sylvia Rosenberg 

No advance publicity has been 
received on this violin and piano 
combination scheduled to appear 
on Tuesday, January 12. How- 
ever, each has been on solo tours 
for the past two years, and as 
they each received muiJh acclaim 
on those tours, together they 
should supply all who hear them 
with an evening of entertainment 
well worth the time given. 
Nelson And Neal 

On Monday, February 8. this 
Australian - American two-piano 
team will grace the stage of 
Milligan's auditorium to present 
a program which is assured to be 
one of the highlights of this sea- 
son's concert series. The Aus- 
tralian prodigy. Allison Nelson, 
and versatile American pianist, 
Harry Neal, were trained at the 
Curtis Institute by Rudolph Ser- 
kin and Isobelle Vengerova. They 
met and were married in Phila- 
delphia, where for eighteen 
months they presented the only 
television program (at that time) 
devoted entirely to classical mu- 
sic. Since then Nelson and Neal 
have played over two hundred 
concerts in Australia, New Zea- 
land and North America, intro- 
ducing many new works and 
specializing in original literature. 

Individually or together, they 
have played over thirty engege- 
ments with major symphony or- 
chestras from Sidney to Philadel- 
phia. It was our good fortune to 
have Harry Neal here at Milligan 
as a soloist on the annual concert 
series a tew years ago. Incidental- 
ly, they will have two beautiful 
matching nine • foot concert 
grands with them on their tour 
this season. These are the same 
pianos that Luboshutz and Nem- 
enoff had on tour this past season.

and territorial Selection Commit- 
tees for final selection. These 
committees are composed of 
prominent citizens and naval of- 
ficers. The Navy expects to en- 
ter about 2,000 students into the 
program commencing with the 
fall term of college, 1954. 

Students finally selected, if ac- 
cepted by the NROTC college or 
university of their choice, will be 
enrolled and appointed Midship- 
men, USNR. They then receive 
retainer pay at the rate of $50.00 
per month to assist in defraying 
such expenses as board and room. 
The government pays tuition, the 
cost of textbooks, and other fees 
of an instructional nature. 

Students commissioned from 
this program are obligated to 
serve on active duty for three 
years and those selected 'as career 
officers at the expiration of this 
period continue their profession- 
al growth concurrently with their 
Naval Academy contemporaries. 

Applications are available at 
high schools, colleges, and Navy 
Recruiting Stations. 

Mr. Guy Oakes, Dean of Milli- 
gan College, who is acting as the 
local civilian representative, will 
be pleased to provide specific in- 
formation about the program, in- 
cluding the time and place of the 
competetive examination, the 
method of making application, 
and the specific age and scholas- 
tic qualifications. This informa- 
tion may also be obtained at any 
of the U. S. Navy Recruiting Sta- 
tions listed in the NROTC Bulle-

all about, you are wondering just 
when this will take place. The 
Junior Class has charge of it. The 
date has not been definitely set; 
it will probably be October 18-24. 
Dick Carpenter, the class presi- 
dent, told me that there are com- 
mittees working to make this 
week a success. When you see 
little paper hearts posted around, 
then you will know that this big

ning and Professor Henry Webb 
gave the charge. Each of the old 
members stepped forward with a 
candidate and lit his candle from 
a large central candle, then lit a 
candle for the candidate from'his 
own. 'This was to signify the re- 
ceiving of light from a greater 
source and sharing it with the 
new member. The members form- 
ed a semicircle around the front 
of the auditorium- Professor El- 
mer C. Lewis then gave the bene- 
diction; and while the recessional 
was being played, the members 
filed out in two files while the 
audience remained standing. 

The purpose of the organization 
is to form a closer fellowship 
among the ministerial students 
and to provide them with some 
practical help to aid them in their 
ministry. A project of the asso- 
ciation is a preaching clinic which 
meets three Tuesdays a month to 
give these students practical ex- 
perience for sermon delivery and 
preparation and to obtain con- 
structive criticism. At the month- 
ly meetings an outside speaker is 
invited to speak on some practical 
.aspect of a minister's work every 
other meeting. On the other meet-

denominations are invited to pre-

September 14-18— RAT WEEK' 
What a week it was — all the 
freshmen going around in those 
funny lookin' clothes, carrying 
funny lookin' articles, doing 
funny errands, and finding out 
ror themselves what Rat-Week 
means at Milligan College. It 
ended rather abruptly on Friday 
but I think most of the freshmen 
enjoyed it. That was the point of 
it at least- 

The Chamber of Commerce en- 
tertained the freshmen of Milli- 
gan and State Saturday, the 19th, 
with a breakfast at the John Se- 
vier Hotel in Johnson City. They 
were served coffee, toast, grits, 
bacon and eggs. They were wel- 
comed to the city and wished a

showing of about 150 of our stu-

they didn't pull any fast ones. In 
the fellowship hall after the ser- 
vice everyone introduced himself 
(including Pat Kozar) and then 
the entertainment began. Our 
own Pat Masters sang beautiful- 
ly for us as did Carole Wardle. 
State had two specials, also, but 
we all think that our specials 
were much better. Incidentally. 
Jay showed his ability on the 
organ in the church service. 

NIonday night, the 28th, was

was held at Hopwood Memorial

night, the 30th of September. An 
estimated 75 were there from the 
College. Mr. Fairbanks .started 
things out by a rousing (?) song

singing "Dixie" but Jay came to 
the rescue and played" "Yankee

Perhaps the most popular and 
widely known organization oti 
campus is the College Choir. This 
group is fortunate to have as its 
director for the fourth consecu- 
tive year. Miss Ruth White. 

This year the choir is made up 
of sixty-two members. Of this 
number approximately half are 
upperclassmen who have been in 
the choir before. Coupling the 
experience of these "veterans" 
with the talent-laden additions 
from the freshman class and the 
transfer students it is almost a 
sure prediction that this year will 
be the greatest for the College 

Another personality who wjll 
be a great asset, is Miss Ona Wei- 
mer. Miss Weimer, professor of 
applied music, is a graduote of 
Westminster Choir School in 
Princeton, New Jersey, and will 
be accompanist for the choir this 

The choir is already hard at 
work in preparation for a pro- 
gram to be given shortly at the 
opening of the new television 
station in Johnson City. This will 
be a new experience — and a great 
honor— and the thought of ap- 
pearing on "TV" has already in- 
5l>ired the choir members. 

During the year the choir will 
give performances at Milligan 
and at various churches and 
schools throughout this area. 
Work has already begun on the 
music for the beautiful annual 
Christmas Pageant, and, of course 
everyone looks ahead to the choir 
tour with great anticipation. 

These are in brief, a summa- 
tion of the tentative plans for 
the College Choir this year. Lis- 
ten at 11:30 a, m.. each day and 
you will hear them rehearsing. 
Rehearsing to give programs and 
performances before many audi- 
ences, but always with one 
thought in the heart of each in- 
dividual — that being to sing to 
the glory of God. praising Him 
for the talents with which He 
has so richly blessed us.

I have nothing to add to Mr. Mack Morriss' editorial. 
It is written accurately and authentically. It tells the 
facts simply and plainly, but in a way softening the blow 
that print sometimes gives, BUT, not living here on. cam- 
pus he could do nothing bat publish the facts as he heard 
them. He could not see, as I saw, the heartbreaking 
drama that enveloped the campus for seven days and 
six nights. He mentioned prayer meetings had been in 
progress for several days, but he could not know that 
these prayer meetings were prayer watches and that they 
extended for se%'en days and six night. The entire stu- 
dent body, from a special prayer meeting on Wednesday, 
October 14, established prayer watches at day and at 
night. The men would watch at night, two men to an 
hour shift, asking God to be merciful, and then the 
women praying by daylight and at all times everyone 
breathing silent prayers asking that a boy, whom many 
did not know, since it happened so close to the first of 
school, be spared and returned to the Milligan family. 

True, he spoke of a New Orleans specialist saying 
everything had been done, EXCEPT the specialist went 
on to say, "What you're doing NOW." He meant the 
prayer watches. 

Nor did he speak of the students who volunteered their 
blood so that this boy might live, or of the special services' 
rendered by Marge Saunders, Kitty Wert, Tom Hicks 
and Dick Barton. 

Pessimists might ask, "Why did he die if Milligan stu- 
dents had such faith?" And we answer, "Who can ex- 
plain the Mystery of God?" Who can say why a boy's 
life is taken away before he has had a chance to live it? 
We can only say while he lived, CaKan Dougherty lived 
in Christ — and I'm sure whatever the reason he was 
taken from us by our Creator, it was not because Milli- 
gan students didn't have enough faith. 

On Friday morning, October 23, a memorial service was 
held in the Milligan Chapel. The gloom and despair was 
evident in the eyes and faces of the faculty and students 
and in their hearts as they spoke. After the service Dean 
E. Walker, President of thp College, who had attended 
the funeral in Indiana, was asked if he would relate 
something of what he had seen or heard in Indiana. He 
said: "The people of Calvin's home church and his parents 
do ftot blame Milligan College or its students. Calvin's 
father said, 'I'm glad my son came to Milligan. If we had 
it to do over again we would send him to Milligan. Our 
other son will go to Milligan'." 

No, I find no fault with Mr. Morriss' editorial. But, 
he could only publish the facts. Sometimes the facts 
aren't enough. — Pat Hand. 


It is always a wonderful experience to return to a place 
that is well loved. This return brings back old and be- 
loved memories. Thus it is with the alumni of Milligan 
College when they return to our beautiful campus. Soon 
we celebrate the third annual Founder's Day at the col- 
lege. This day always brings a great host of alumni to 
our halls. As you return for this occasion, we open our 
doors to you and ask that you enjoy fellowship with 
the present student body of the college. In behalf of the 
student body, it is my pleasure to sincerely welcome all 
alumni of Milligan College to the campus as we mutually 
celebrate the founding of this Christian College and 
pray together that the ideals upon which it was founded 
may continue to exist, believing that CHRISTIAN EDU-

The Milligan College Student 
Council recently undertook a di- 
rect mail program for securing 
additional funds for use toward 
the completion of the Student 
Union building. According to Miss 
Dianne Walker, secretary of the 
funds drive, two thousand, two 
hundred seventy dollars and fifty 
cents has been acknowledged 
since October thirteenth. 

Of that amount fifteen hundred 
dollars was contributed by John 
M. Hart and was designed for the 
lighting equipment. All funds 
are kept in account by the Ham- 
ilton Bank of Johnson City and 
are released for payments only 
through Professor Sam Hyder of 
the Milligan faculty. 

Arrangements are complete for 
the finishing of the main story 
walls and floors and the lighting 
installations. Then after the funds 
lor kitchen equipment have been 
secured other funds will be di- 
rected for serving tables; each 
table complete with chairs will 
cost eighty-two dollars and five

Who Will Be Founder's Day Daughter ? ! 


Yes. v/ho will be Founder's Day 
Daughter? Will it be Sara Zacha- 
rias? or Kitty Wert? Or will it 
be Nancy Gehrum? What about 
Betty Jo Mize? and Sue Jackson? 
Or Katie Colbert? Or Suzie El- 
lis? It's hard to say who will be 
Founder's Daughter; but. who- 
ever wins, she will have won out 
of a field of worthy candidates. 

It's too bad that the students 
of Milligan can't elect the can- 
didate of their choice instead of 
alumni and students combined, 
because who does the alumni 
know? The students know the 
candidates and many feel that 
they only should elect the Foun- 
der's Daughter. 

I don't know about it myself, 
because I'm only an unbiased 
newspaper editor, but. they might 
have something there. 

Following are a few publicity 
notes that the various campaign 
managers cared to put in. Please 
note— that the STAMPEDE DOES 

Kitty Wert Sponsored 
By Pre-Med Club 

Miss Kitty Wert is the Pre- 
Med Club's candidate for Found- 
er's Day Daughter of 1953 at 
Milligan College. This 5" 2", blue- 
eyed, blonde from Lock Haven, 
Pennsylvania, is a junior at the 
college majoring in nursing-arts 
The personable young girl, the 
college nurse, is one of the out- 
standing candidates because of 
her winning smile and friendly 

Kitty is a familiar sight on the 
campus in her favorite clothes — 
a blue sweater and a gray skirt. 
Her favorite meal includes steak, 
French fries, and apple pie. She 
likes semi-classical music, and 
her favorite date consists of a 
good movie with her best beau 
followed by a snack. 

Now that you are better ac- 
quainted with Kitty, the Pre-Med 
Club feels sure you will want her 
as Founder's Day Daughter of 

JSancy Gehrum Choice 
Christian Service Club 

Nancy Gehrum is the choice of 
the members of the Christian 
Service Club to receive the back- 
ing of this organization as their 
candidate for Founder's Daugh- 

Nancy, a popular and attractive 
member of the freshman class, is 
a native of Canton, Ohio. She is 
majoring' in English. 

We feel sure that she clearly 
displays the personality and 
characteristics for which the 
honor of Founder's Daughter 
stands. Your enthusiastic support 
will be greatly appreciated. 

The publicity manager for 
Nancy in this campaign is John

Suzie Ellis Sponsored 
By Commerce Club 

Suzie Ellis, a native of this 
area, and an up and coming 
freshman has been chosen to 
represent the Commerce Club as 
their candidate for Founder's 
Day Daughter. 

Miss Ellis, recent second-place 
winner in the GE Ultra-Vision 
contest in East Tennessee, is a 
lovely and very talented young 

From our acquaintance with 
Suzie, we are sure that she pos-

become a Founder's Daughter.

her campaign. Your vote and in-

In September he was called to 
come and estimate the cost of re- 
pair. Then November 10 he re- 
turned and began his work He 
found it in bad need of repair. 
There were broken wires, broken 
magnets, three runs, which made 
it unplayable, worn out leather 
so that it had to be completely 
redone. He took three gallons of 
water out of the chest, which 
could have meant destruction- 
After all this work is completed 
and it has been tuned, he believes 
it will be in perfect shape. 

This Wurlitzer organ, a gift of 
Mrs. Carla Keyes of Johnson City, 
was worth $28,000 when it was 
purchased. With the new parts 
today, this organ is well worth 

The sound effects on the organ 
include: Chimes, harp, bass drum, 
snare drum, kettle drum, sleigh 
bells, bird whistles, siren, railroad 
bell, doorbell, horse trot, and 

Mr. Cozatl says that we are in- 
deed fortunate in having such an 
organ and it is certainly one of 
which we should be proud. K. T. 

FT A Meeting 

The Future Teachers of Amer- 
ica of Milligan College, Josephus 
Hopwood Chapter held its No- 
vember meeting in the Admin- 
istration building on Tuesday, 
November 17, 1953 at 7:30 p.m. 

During the business session. 
Jim Patton reported on the radio 
program, which tiie members had 
given. Sue Jackson was chosen 
the F. T. A. candidate for the 
Founder's Day Daughter. Plans 
were discussed for the members 
of the F. T. A. to serve the 
Founder's Day banquet. Jackie 
Harrison was appointed to be in 
charge of the F. T. A, newspaper. 

The program for the evening 
was a panel on "How to Get a 
Job." Members of the panel were 
Mr. Sam Hyder, Principal of the 
Elizabethton High School, Eliza- 
bethton, Tennessee; Mr. Hassel 
Evans, Superintendent of Unicoi 
County Schools, and Dr. Dean 
Walker, President of Milligan 

Dr. Walker spoke on the quali- 
fications of teachers. Importance 
of the leaching profession was 
stressed by Mr. Evans. Mr, Hyder 
spoke on the importance in mak- 
ing the child feel wanted. Ques- 
tions were asked the panel by 
the F. T. A. members. 

Student Council Adopts 
SB Constitution 

(Contlnuad From Pag* Ona) 
this constitution must be correct- 
ed and approved as one of tis 
first tasks. Several special meet- 
ings were held and much discus- 
sion took place, but finally the 
constitution for student govern- 
ment at Milligan College was 
completed as far as the Student 
Council was concerned. It was 
then submitted to "the President 
of the College for his approval. 
After approval by Dr. Walker, the 
constitution was presented to~the 
student body in a Friday morn- 
ing assembly. The acceptance by 
them was unanimous and immed- 
iately, on the 23rd day of Octotter 
the first Milligan Student Gov- 
ernment Constitution went into 

We feel that it is a great 
achievement for the Student 
Council and hope that we. the 
students of Milligan College, can 
fulfill the ideals set forth in the 
preamble of this document: that 
through the united efforts we can 
achieve common purposes and 
solve problenns. that we shall as- 
sume the responsibilities in the 
management of student affairs. 
that we shall strive to coordinate 
better student-administrative re- 
lations, and thus continue to pre- 
serve and foster the principles of 
Christian education and democ- 
racy in order to make a greater 
Milligan. This is our purpose.

Freshmen To Establish 
Dougherty Memorial 

(Cantlnoad From Pag* On*) 
At a meeting this week the 
class voted that this memorial be 
in the form of Librar>' Ekjuip- 
ment. A card catalog file is in 
great need, so this will be the 
first piece of equipment purchas- 
ed. Mr. Neth, librarian, has 
stated that a good library should 
have three cards for each volume. 
Our library has nearly 20,000 
volumes, but only 28.000 cards. A 
new file would correct this de- 
ficiency. Later, if funds permit, 
other equipment will be added. 

Plans for the raising of money 
have not been completed, but the 
main source, it is hoped, will be 
donations from churches and in- 
dividuals who hold Milligan Col- 
lege close at heart A talent pro- 
gram is being arranged with the 
hopes of using it to raise funds 
for this worthy project. 

Dr. Owen Crouch is sponsor of 
the class. 

All books in circulation will be 
due in the Library December 10. 
Books will not be allowed to cir- 
culate in the hands of the stu- 
dents except by special permis-

slaw, hot rolls, cherry pie, and 
iced tea. Our own male quartet. 
Randy Osborne, and Jim Devault, 
and Marcella Cole from State, 
furnished the entertainment for 
the evening. Mr. John Paul Jones, 
from Hillsboro, Ohio, flew down 
to be the speaker of the evening. 
He had a very inspiring message 
and everyone was glad to gel to 
meet this man that we've heard 
so much about. He did a fine job 
and everyone enjoyed the whole 
evening, including Earl VanDine 
who got the top of his convertible 
down and couldn't get it back up. 
He had a rather airish ride back 
out to school. 

The Chanticleers presented a 
concert on November 6 which was 
really something. Not only were 
they a good quartet but they-wete 
all good, soloists. A reception was 
held afterwards in Hardin, so all 
the students could meet them. An 
interesting observation made was 
that none of the men were mar-

crew at the station commended 
them on the fine job they did. 

The same night here on the

held for Mrs. Eugene Price. She 
received some ver>' adorable lit-

Friday, November 27, 1953 


Those of you who followed us 
through the basketball season 
closely last year know that we 
won 10 and lost II games during 
the regular season. Those of you 
who were closer observers know 
it could very easily have been a 
14-7 record had it not been for 
these four reversals: a 96-92 over- 
time loss to Tusculum; a 71-72 
loss to Austin Peay State; a loss 
at Emory and Henry, 83-85; and 
a 73-75 defeat on Carson-New- 
man's court. Of course, there are 
a lot of "ifs" in basketball as well 
as in anything else. But, well . . . . 

Still referring to last season's 
team, it might be surprising to 
some to know that we averaged 
74.9 points in 21 games. 

Looking ahead now to the season 
which is so close upon us, I am 
"on the fence" between optimism 
and pessimism with a heavy 
leaning toward the former as far 
as our winning either conference 
championship is concerned. We 
can have a good season without 
winning either championship, 
but with a lot of work on the 
part of the squad we can have a 
better season with the top spot 
.in either VSAC or SMAC. 

At the present time we have a 
sixteen-man practice squad, 10 to 
12 of which will compete in the 
regular games. Nine of the 16 are 
new to Milligan basketball. Of the 
others, one is a senior, one is a 
junior, and the remainder are 
sophomores. Seven of the above 
16 were on last last year's 15-man 
squad. Joe Dickey, 6'4" center 
was unable to return to Milligan 
this fall. Five other members of 
the '52-"53 squad are still in 
school here, but are not on the 
- sqasri-Iliis yedr. The sixteen boys 
working now are to be commend- 
ed for their efforts, and they de- 
serve your support. The squad is 
as follows: Jim Burgett and Bud 
Gaslin, co-captains; Glen Barton, 
Phil Roush, Norman Held, Don 
Williams, Pat Hand. Jim Crouch, 
Duard Aldridge, Al Covel, Jim 
Wilhoit. Ted McKeehan, Roy 
Sparks, John Hall. Bob VanBuren 
and Scott Lewis. 

Bob Williams and Joe Hill are 
doing good work as team man- 

From all indications we won't 
be hurting from any superiority 
complex. On the contrary, we 
will have a good psychological ad- 
vantage over our opponents. In a 
national ranking, similar to the 

Litkenhous ratings m football, we 
are supposed to defeat only two 
of the colleges on our '53-'54 
schedule — King and Carson-New- 
man. Six straight wins before 
Christmas would be a tremendous 
boost for us, wouldn't it? It would 
make the remainder of the season 
a real challenge to us. Give the 
team your best moral support. 
Thank you. 

Coach Duard Walker. 

Shots At Sports 


Sports interest at Milligan is on 
the rampage as teachers and stu- 
dents alike await the official 
opening of the 1953-54 basketball 
season at Cheek Gymnasium De- 
cember 4, with Appalachian Slate 
Teacher College. 

Coach Walker will rely upon a 
team composed almost entirely 
of sophomores and freshmen as 
he faces "the always formidable 
force from Boone, North Caro- 
lina. Phil Rousch, senior, and Pat 
Hand, junior, round out the team. 

Also seen in action will be sev- 
eral additions to the cheering 
squad — Pat Bonner, Sue Sparks, 
Anne Miller, and Larry Craig 
showed up extremely well in 
tryouts and along with lettermen 
Betty Snodgrass and "Doc" 
Hawes should give the cheering 
section a boost. 

The "Goons" are back on the 
hardwood and basketball has 
reached a new low. Clad in bright 
red trunks and employing "if 
they wait, we'll catch them" sys- 
tem the boys exhibit a type of 
basketball not seen often in these 
parts (or any other). 

After warmup games with the 
"deacons," they boldly challenge 
the girls club of Miss Con- 
ffKTio- Mynatt. Anybody taking 

I understand that this year's 
girl's team is seeking to schedule 
several games with other colleges. 
Be good to see the girls perform 
in oiir own gymnasium. Last 
year's team, coached by Mrs. Vest 
played in the City League in 
Johnson City and wound up in 
third place in the gold medal 
tournament. Now that the girls 
have a year of experience and 
with the addition of several new- 
comars this year's team should be 
able to provide some exciting 
moments. - 

Question of the week: Who 
will be Founder's Day Daugh> 

Commerce Club 


On Monday, November 16, 
1953, new officers for the Com- 
merce Club for 1953-54 were 
chosen in a called meeting. The 
officers chosen were: President, 
Jimmie Buckles; Vice-President, 
J. B. Shepherd; Secretary, June 
Jaynes; and Treasurer, James 

Again on Friday, November 20, 
the Commerce Club met and 
chose Suzie Ellis as their candi- 
date for Founder's Daughter. A 
social committee was appointed 
to work on plans for our Christ- 
mas Party which will be held De- 
cember 3, 1953 in the Hardin Par- 

Mr. Eugene Price, professor of 
Business Administration is spon- 
sor of the club. 

Dramatic Club 

The Dramatic Club T)egan the 
1953-54 season by having a party 
at which the new members came 
dressed as nursery rhyme char- 
acters and performed for the en- 
Next the club presented a play 
titled Home at Seven as their 
first major production of the 
1953-54 season. 

At a business meeting Novem- 
ber 16. the club elected Katie 
Colbert to represent the Club^ in 
the forth coming Founder's Day 
Daughter contest. A committee 
was also elected to read and 
choose one-act plays and also the 
three-act plays to be presented 
after Christmas. The Club also 
voted to change its name from 
the Dramatic Club to The Milli- 
gan College Players. 

Intramural Football All-Stars 


Virginia Triumphs In Touch Football 

THE VIRGINIA TEAM— Front Row (L to R): Doug Morehead. 
Joe Vicars. Chad Boiling, Bob Whitt, Charles Smithers, Bob 
Williams, Sam Elam. Back row (L to R): James Fletcher. 
Clarence Lamb. Bill Sproles, Frank Hawks, Bill Sayers. 


The football forces of Virginia 
rolled up a season record of 4 
wins, 1 loss, and one tic to take 
first place in the intramural 
football program headed by 
Coach Walker. 

One of the main features of the 

successes of the Virginia team 
lies in the rugged line play ex- 
hibited by such stalwarts as Bill 
Sayers, Bob Williams, Doug 
Morehead, Sam Elam. Chad Boil- 
ing, and Bob Whitt. Not to be de- 
nied was the work of such men 
in the backfield as "Bum" Sproles 
and "Razz" Fletcher. 


Clarence Ros.= and Sid Walker 
are freshmen members of our Mil- 
ligan circle who have experience 
in a field not known to many. 
Anyone who knows the program 
of the 4-H or F. F. A. will be m- 
terested in the following com- 

Ross became an F. F. A. mem- 
ber in high school days in Lex- 
ington, Ohio. Sheep raising was 
one of his projects along with 
dairy and grain. During the sum- 
mer months he showed his sheep 
in various county and state fairs. 
Ross said that he had received 
about five shoe boxes full of rib- 
bons from these contests. 

Ross was conferred the honor- 
ary degree of State Farmer of 
Ohio at a banquet m which Gov- 
ernor Lauche gave the address to 
an audience of over 4.000 people. 
The degree was given to those 
among the top two hundred Fu- 
ture Farmers of America mem- 
bers. These members displayed 
the most efficiency in their proj- 
ects during the four high school 

Clarenco-Ross is a member of a 
family that buys and sells sheep. 
They have on their farm one of 
the few Montadale sheep herds in 
the United States. It is the sev- 
enth flock brought to Ohio. 

Sid Walker, the other fresh- 
man, hails from the Woodbine 
Farms of Gambier, Ohio. He, too, 
was affiliated with the F. F. A. in 
the Mt. Vernon High School. Wal- 
ker was an officer in the F. F. A. 
for four years, having Sentinel, 
Treasurer, Vice-President and 
Treasurer offices respectively. 

Sid grew up on the sheep farm 
and has a great amount of ex- 
perience in sheep raising. Before 
college he raised Corriedales. The 
whole flock had grown to 467 at 
the time Walker came here to 
Milligon. There are obout eight 
flocks of that size in Ohio. 

Walker said that he had shown 
the Corriedales in many county

Investigation in the Library in- 
dicates Vliat the student and cui- 
lege publications have undergone 
many changes in both name and 
content with the passing years. 
The earliest issue that we have is 
dated December. 1898, and edited 
by J. and S. E. L. Hopwood, This 
number is Vol. Ill, vvhich indi- 
cates the publication began in 
1896. By 1901, THE MILLIGAN 
LIGHT was in publication by the 
same editors. We have only the 
July issue of that year. From 
other sources we learn of THE 
NEW HORIZON issued sometime 
during the first decade of the 
20th century. We have no copies 
of this. By the middle of the sec- 
ond decade, we find THE LIGHT, 
published by the Hopwoods dur- 
ing his second Presidential per- 
iod, of which we have February 
and July numbers without the 
year dates — probably in 1915, Fol- 
lowing World War I, THE PERI- 
SCOPE enjoyed a few years of 
prosperity but by 1924 it gave 
way to THE TRIDENT. We have 

fairs and in state fairs. The fam- 
ily has the coveted G. A T. 
trophy. In fact, there are enough 
trophies in the Walker home to 
fill the reserve book shelf in the 
library; moreover Sid said that 
he had enough ribbons to hne his 
room all; over. 

The process of getting sixteen 
or eighteen sheep ready to show 
in a fair involves a period of 
about one month. The sheep must 
be washed or cleaned, blocked, 
and covered with a sheep blanket. 
"One method of washing sheep," 
Ross said, "is to use "Gold Dust" 
and water." Walker has a secret 
method of cleaning the sheep's 
wool. The blanket keeps the 
wool clean and tight Blocking a 
sheep's wool is similar to giving 
a "flat top" hair cut. except that 
the sheep has four sides when 
finished. DICK BARTON 

no record of the period of publi- 
cation of THE TRIDENT, but by 
1935 THE STAMPEDE was is- 
sued. Except for the Navy V-12 
period of World War II, it has 
survived thru the current num- 
ber, November 1953. Perhaps 
there were other publications we 
have missed? 

1928-1929 to ??. was superceded 
which sent news of the college 
and alumni over the MiUigan 
family. This ceased with the 
Navy V-12 era. We have copies 
of another issue. Fall, 1947, which 
was published after the war. It 
has now been replaced by THE 
\aLL-AGENDA, started in 1950. 

Have you heard of these 
papers? What about extra copies? 
We would like to complete our 
Librar>' files. This would be an 
area of service to Milligan Col- 
lege. Perhaps your father, moth- 
er, or friends attended Milligan 
in years past. Do they have old 
papers, pictures, and college 
items that could be made avail- 
able to the college? 

Any annuals prior to 1921 
would be most welcome. We need 
1923. 1926. 1928. 1933. 1934, 1935, 
1936. 1937, 1942. and 1946 to

He drew the image for all to see... 

Jt was in New York City, on Christmas Eve, 1822, that Clement 
Clarke Moore in the quiet hour before dinner set himself to writing 
a simple Christmas jingle to read as a present to his children. His 
quill pen slowly scratched out the coords: 

" 'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house . . ." 

The children squealed with delight when he read it to them after 
dinner, especially at the parts about St. Nick's rosy cheeks, and 
twinkling eyes, and white-as-snow beard and his "little round belly 
that shook, when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly." When they 
were safely tucked away, with visions of sugar-plums dancing in 
their heads, modest Clement Clarke Moore buried his poem in the 
silence of his desk. 

But his children would not let it rest there, and soon its simple 
verses swept through the land and into the hearts of all the people, 
and Clement Moore's image of St. Nick became the best-known, 
best-loved man in America. 

There are those, mostly oldsters of 6 or more, who quibble at times 
about whether he actually exists. There are those who say he 
doesn't REALLY come down the chimney . . . that he isn't flesh 
and blood, after all. You can't actually SEE him, they say. You 
can't SEE love, either .... or freedom ... or hope. 

But again this year ten miUion pretty neu) dolls will suddenly ap- 
pear under the Chri-^tmas trees. And a whole great new fleet of 
electric trains will whistle at the tunnels, and go clickety-clack, 
clickety-clack down the bock straightaway. He has been called a 
myth ... a hoax, even. But in all the universe is there a HAPPIER 
hoax, or a myth that accomplishes so many physical miracles? We 
have believed in the possibility of a lot of things in America which 
couldn't at first be PROVED. Wires that talk . . . drugs that cure 
. . . Libert!/ and Justice for all. We have never PROVED that 
there is a Santa Clans. But the BELIEF in him is constant in (he 
minds 0/ children, for as we grotc to the ancient age of S and dis-

Freedom Of Destiny 

There was once a nation which for several thousand 
years underwent extensive preparation so that one man 
could use four years to fulfill his mission on earth. The 
man came. Heknew what he was here for and he ac- 
complished his mission. 

His parents were predetermined; ours also were. 
Also predetermined was his nationality and several 
other things. However, these fixed things were not 
nearly so important in determining his contribution to 
men as were the things which he determined by his 
own will. 

Because he maintained the highest ideals in his con- 
tact with man and God and because he operated his life 
under a long-range plan he finally declared that the hour 
had come — mission accomplished! 

What is the "manifest destiny" of your life? When 
will you be able to say, "My hour has come; this accom- 
plishment, this contribution to mankind is that result 
of a long-rang life plan which was launched in my 

Could a Christian young person ask for a better time 
or for a better situation for launching that idea or 
calling which possesses his soul? You are in a youthful 
and a free nation. You are in a church-related college. 
You have freedom of your will. That means that you 
can. if you will, set your own destiny and then mani- 
fest it. 

Carlyle once said that "life is but a span of time be- 
tween two eternities"; this age and this day is your own 
precious nugget of time. 

This is the age he chose for me 
Between creation and eternity; 
My golden hour — my precious span 
In all the years allotted man. 

This is the age he chose for me; 
This is my era of destiny. 
I have a piupose to fulfill — 
The consummation of his will. 

This is the age he chose for me 

I shall match this hour with effort supreme 

Between creation and eternity. 

To consummate his ageless dxeam!— Miller.

NOTE: Last month, I gave a 
brief history of Communism, 
showing Karl Marx's ideas and 
how they have developed to 
the present day. It was also 
pointed out thai Socialism and 
Communism are practically the 
same, the only difference being 
in the methods used to bring 
them into existence. 

Since the world is now most 
concerned with Russian Com- 
munism, a brief history will 
now be given of the rise of 
Communism in Russia. 

The comment and criticism 
of the first article is greatly 
appreciated. My only hope is 
that these articles will be in- 
formative and that, perhaps, an 
interest will be developed in 
this very timely and important 
subject. — J. B. 


The Development 

Communism in Russia may be 
divided into four periods, the 
first being from 1917-22, For 
hundreds of years prior to l!tt7, 
the Russian people had lived 
under the despotic rule of one 
family which went by the title of 
Czar. It was not until 1905 that 
the Czar allowed the formation 
of any type of representative gov- 
ernment which was in the form 
of a two-chamber parliament, 
called the Duma. The Duma, how- 
ever, was verj' weak, but it last- 
ed until March, 1917. when in a 
dramatic revolt, it overthrew the 
Czar. Then for several months. 
two parties engaged in a grim 
struggle to gain control of the 
government. By October, the 
more radical element led by two 
Marxists. Lenin and Trolsky. had 
won out. Soon a constitution was 
drawn up. and then Lenin start- 
ed the "great experiment" — a 
movement which is almost un- 
equalled in its world-wide conse- 
quences. ALL land, buildings, 
railroads, factories, in fact. EV- 
ERYTHING of value, was confis- 
cated by the government. Distri- 
bution of wealth was made ac- 
cording to the needs of the peo- 
ple. This philosophy of Commun- 
ism in its purest form was in ef- 
fect for about five years. 

The second period of Russian 
Communism started in 1922. when 
a slight retreat was made back 
into Capitalism by the adoption 
of the New Economic Policy. 
Why was this done? Lenin, him- 
self, said this "strategic retreat" 
was made because. "If we had 
not transformed our economic 
policy, we should not have lasted 
many months longer." This 
proved one thing — pure Com- 
munism will not work because 
there is always the danger that 
the oppressed people, deprived of 
any initiative, will revolt. The 
New Economic Policy was in af- 
fect for about five years. 

However, in 1928. a return was 
made to Communism. Lenin had 
died in 1924. and, for the next 
three years, a struggle for his po- 
sition was made by two men. It 
was thought the Lenin's partner, 
Trotsky, was the most likely con- 
tender. But Trotsky was opposed 
by an almost unknown individual 
who had come up through the 
part>' ranks, Joseph Stalin. Sta- 
lin verj' easily won out and had 
Trotsky expelled from the coun- 
tr>- in 1927, later to be murdered 
by one of Stalin's agents in Mexi- 
co City in 1940. So in 1928, the 
Russian economy reverted to 

Communism by the adoption of 
Stalin's first Five- Year Plan. 
Whereas, such a move had failed 
in the early ■20's, this one u'as 
successful for one reason — Stalin 
now had the military, with which 
to back his orders up. Now, any 
revolt of the people against the 
tyrannical rule was quickly dis- 

This third period in the devel- 
opment of Russian. Communism 
covers the year from 1928-45. 
These seventeen years are mark- 
ed by three important character- 
istics. The growth of the military 
to carry out the orders of the 
state has already been mention- 
ed. This growth of the military 
brought about a second charac- 
teristic — slaver,'- Slavery is the 
only thing which has kept Rus- 
sian Communism from collaps- 
ing as it did in the early '20's. It 
has been estimated that during 
the '30's, there were as many as 
eighteen million slave laborers in 

The third characteristic ol Rus- 
sia from 1928-45 is that of war. 
German aggression has been the 
only real threat to the continu- 
ance of Russian Communism; and 
had it not been for the industrial 
might of the United States, 
which supplied Russia with bil- 
lions of dollars' worth free war 
goods, the "great experiment" 
would have met a sudden death. 
But as it happened, she managed 
to survive World War II and to 
come out of it as one of the groat 
world powers. 

The fourth, and by far the most 
important, period of Russian 
Communism includes the years 
from 1945 to the present. It is 
during these years that the af- 
fairs of the United States and 
Russia become so entwined that 
an Assistant Secretary' of the 
Treasury is found to be a Rus- 
sian spy! This will be the sub- 
ject of next month's article.

This literar>' endeavor is writ- 
ten to prove, beyond the shadow 
of a doubt, that there is never a 
dull moment at Cheek Hall. 

Saturday, November 21, Marga- 
ret Butler. Carol Hamilton and 
Barbara Williams decided to pop 
com in Mrs. Nice's kitchen. With 
the help of Pat Lindsey and Anne 
Robinson, the party was soon 
under way. Later in the evening 
the girls entertained such digni- 
taries as Jim Kohls. Scott Lewis, 
Dave Crandall and Dick Bevan 
and. last, but not least, Marilyn 
Smith and Jerry Wagner. A good 
time was had by all. 

Tuesday, November 24. six 
girls gave a surprise birthday 
party for Carol Hamilton with 
cokes, presents, and all the trim- 

On Wednesday, several of the 
Cheek girls set out for home. 
June Tapp went to Erwin, Anne

Debate Teams 
Make A Good 
Showing At Boone 


MilHgan was represented by 
four debaters at the 13th Annual 
Appalachian Mountain Forensics 
Tournament at Appalachian State 
College. Boone, N. C. Dec. 3, 4, 
and 5. Other colleges participat- 
ing, were: Maryville. Lenoir- 
Rhyne. East Tennessee State. 
Mars Hill, Carson-Newman, and 
Appalachian State. 

Accompanied by Miss Lucy 
Price, the debate teams consisted 
of Jim Hamilton and Johnny 
Byrd. first and second affirmative 
speakers, and Randy Osborne and 
Jim Hawes, first and second 
speakers for the negative side. 

The question for debate was. 
"Resolved: That the United States 
Should Adopt a Policy of Free 
Trade." The affirmative team 
were in six debates, while the 
negative team participated in 
seven. The results of these thir- 
teen debates are very encourag- 
ing, considering the fact that 
Hamilton and Osborne had never 
been in a debate before two weeks 
ago. The affirmative side won 
four out of six and the negative 
four out of seven, for a total of 
eight wins and five losses. Since 
this was only a practice tourna- 
ment for the "big ones" which 
will take place in March and 
April, it is evident that with a 
little more experience, the two 
teams could develop into formid- 
able contenders against the col- 
leges of this area. 

In addition to debating, seven 
other speaking contests of various 
types were held, each with divi- 
sions for women and men. Hawes 
and Byrd entered extemporan- 
eous speaking with the latter 
taking third place, Byrd also won 
first honors in oration. 

The tournament was greatly 
enjoyed by the entire group. The 
two veterans renewed many ac- 
quaintances, while the two "rook- 
ies" made new acquaintances 
among those "hot-air" throwing, 
arm-waving individuals who call 
themselves debaters. 

Besides the forensic contests, 
there were other interesting ac- 
tivities. Thursday night there was 
a concert given by the Davidson 
(N.C.) College band. This is 
known as one of the finest small 
college bands in America and. 
from the quality of its music, this 
is undoubtedly true. Appearing 
with the band, as soloist, was 
Sigurd Rascher. a Swedish saxo- 
phonist, who has played with 
such orchestras as the London 

On Friday night, a banquet was 
held for all the visiting colleges. 
Besides the good food, we had 
the opportunity to enjoy the af- 
ter-dinner speaking contests. 

There arc two interesting things 
which should be noted. The two 
teams from Milligan debated Ap- 
palachian five times and were 
victorious in four of those con- 
tests. Between this — losing four 
out of five debates — and losing 
two basketball games, all in three 
days. Appalachian was getting 
tired of ^^I^igan. You can't blame 

Another interesting fact is that 
Milligan debated East Tennessee 
Slate twice and won both con- 
tests. Is this an indication of 
what might happen in a more 
popular competitive activitj- later 
this winter? Wc hope so. The 
debaters have done it, so Buffa- 
loes, you do it!

FoiiTider^s Day Banquet Brings 
Memories To Old Grads .... 

Milligan College was the scene 
of the third annual celebration 
of Founder's Dav on Saturday, 
November 28. 1953. Open House 
was held in the dormitories and 
the administration building. This 
was followed by a reception in 
Hardin Hall. 

The big event was that night 
when a banquet was held in 
Cheek Hall, President Walker 
presided over the evening's ac- 
tivities. Many alumni and guests 
were present. Mr. E. E, Hawkins, 
a Milligan graduate and retired 
teacher, gave the main address. 
He had lived with the founder of 
Milligan College. Josephus Hop- 
wood and his wife, Sara LaRue 
Hopwood. He related some of his 
experiences as well as Professor 
Hopwood's ideal of education. 

During the banquet, selection 
was mode of the Founder's 
Daughter of 1953. Miss Kitty 
Wert was chosen. A junior from 
Lock Haven. Pennsylvania, this 
registered nurse was the candi- 
date of the Pre-Med Club. Other 
candidates were Katie Colbert — 
Milligan College Players; Suzy 
Ellis — Commerce Club; Sara 
Zacharias— Phi Eta Tau; Sue 
Jackson— F. T. A.; Betty Mise— 
"M" Club and Physical Education 
Club; and Nancy Gehrum — Chris- 
tian Service Club. 

Milligan College is learning 
more and more about its founder- 
In the library is a copy of one of 
Milligan's early school newspa- 
pers dated September. 1892. It 
was called The Light or The 
Milligan Light. Mr. James B. Ly- 
ons of Bristol sent us this paper. 
It was his uncle. Rev. W G. Bar- 
ker, who began Buffalo Institute 
in old Buffalo Church in 1868. 
Mr, Lyons enrolled in the college 
in 1875 when Dr. and Mrs. Hop- 
wood came to Buffalo. Five years 
later plans were made for an ad- 
ditional story to their two-story 
building. Upon the day of dedi- 
cation of the corner stone, Dr. 
Hopwood made the statement 
that named Milligan College. He 
was heard to say. "Henceforth 
this institution will be known as 
Milligan College." 

Mr, Lyons was able to tell us 
something about our evening 
speaker. He remembered Mr. 
Hawkins's coming to this section 
from North Carolina, We can 
readily see why Dr. Hopwood 
chose him to live with the Hop- 
woods and to go to school when 
we know that he had a Christian 
background and possessed those 
qualities for which Dr. Hopwood 
was looking. Dr. Hopwood did not 
just pick any boy at random but 
one who could fulfill his am- 


Miss Mary Keefauver "has giv- 
en the first generous contribution 
towards the heating system." 
states Sam J. Hyder, faculty ad- 
visor of the Student Union Build- 
ing program. He added an addi- 
tional word, saying that "we ex- 
pect to place an order for the 
heating system within the next 
ten days." 

The modem florescent lighting 
system has been installed and is 
in operating order, excepting the 
downstairs meeting room. Those 
installations will be finished dur- 
ing the next several, days. 

Work is now in progress on the 
sanding and polishing of the 
hardwood floors and. also, on the 
completion of the flooring and 
walls of the kitchen interior. 

The downstairs section will in- 
clude rostroom and laundering ac- 
commodations. The partitions for 
these facilities will be completed 
this month. 

Among those who have finan- 
iially aided the Union Building 

since the last report. November 
20. are Mr. and Mrs. A R, Mor- 
gan, Thomas B. Fowler, Harry 
Smith, and Mr. and Mrs, Lyle De- 
Witt^ach having given ten dol- 

Persons who donated five dol- 
lars each are Chastine Kirby. O, 
F. Kilborne. Annie and Mabel 
Anderson. Mrs. Hiram"M. Frakes. 
Emory G. Johnson. Lawrence G, 
Derthick. Mabel Lacy Hall. Miss 
Audrey P. Quillin, and J. Norton 

The Kentuckiana Chapter of 
the Milligan Alumni Association 
contributed twenty-five dollars 
and the same amount was given 
by H, C Price, Fifteen dollars 
was contributed by Dr. Nicholas 
C- Cavallaro, 

Milligan students are proud of 
their student activities building 
and are grateful to alumni and 
other interested people who are 
playing such a big part in ready-

Still, Kitty Irwin. Dotty Dixon, 
Janet Catlett, Leo Ernst. Harriet

campus for the event other than 
alumni. Several from Canton — 
Carabelle White. Doug Crowder. 
Carole Wickes' mother, and 
grandparents. The banquet went 
off real well and our congratula- 
tions go to MISS KITTY WERT. 

Jimmy Buckles spent t h e 
Thanksgiving holidays in Knox- 

Then came the first of Decem- 
ber finding everyone trying to 
get that term paper done before 
Christmas vacation. There are 
not many days left now and still 
no term paper for most of us. 

Monday night there was a 
practice basketball game and our 
boys really did look good. We 
won, of course! 

It was Tuesday, I believe, that 
the organ's motor gave away. It 
seems there is always something, 
Mac got right to work on it, 
though, and it was ready for the 
organ recital. 

Wednesday night our basketball 
team went to Appalachian State 
for our first game of the season. 
From all we hear it was a good 
game with a final score of 88-64. 
The bell sounded off about 11 
p. m. that night- 

In preparation for the game we 
had a Pep Rally at 10 o'clock 
that morning with Doc Hawes in 
charge. We had a list of yells with 
our cheerleaders in charge. Then 
there was, "What's the good 
word?" sounding off several 
times. The Pep band with Miss 
Weimer at the piano went wild. 
After several yells the Pep Band 
wound up the session with the 
Alma Mater, 

Also on Wednesday night the 
Commerce Club had their Christ- 
mas party in Hardin. They sang 
Christmas carols, Pat Masters 
sang "White Christmas" and 
"Blue Christmas" and Carole 
Wickes did a beautiful chalk 
drawing. Jimmy Buckles really 
went all out for refreshments — 
there was punch, ice cream, cake, 
peanuts, sandwiches and mints. 
Mr. and Mrs. Price and Miss Tur- 
beville were the sponsors pres- 
sent, Mrs, Nice gave the Christ- 
mas story. 

Friday in the regular chapel 
period the freshman class had a 
talent show for Calvin Dougher- 
ty. Marvin Sweeney was the 
M. C. of the program. Don Miller, 
the little boy with o great voice, 
did an excellent job of "Ole Man 
River." The Harmonicats almost 
stole the show with their soloist, 
Owen Crouch's presentation of 
"Turkey In The Straw." The au- 
dience was overwhelmed, so 
Crouch and Fairbanks did a duet 

Hall for Founder's Day were Bar- 
bara Hay's mother from Steuben- 
villo, Ohio, our own Mary Perry, 
'51. and an acquaintance (?) of 
June Tapp's named George. 

These are just a few examples 
of the fun and fellowship that 
take place at Cheek Hall. All the 
girls think it's really terrific and 
we all have a wonderful time. 
Now this windy character has 
run out of things to say except to 
bring everyone 22 warm, heart- 
felt wishes for a Merry Christmas 
and a Happy New Year from the 
girls of Check Hall!

Crouch declared afterward that 
it took more out of him to play 
for two minutes than to preach 
for 35. "Tex" Williams afipear- 
ed m "Grand Ole Opery" style 
doing a popular hill-billy classic. 
He plucked out "Chattanooga 
Shoe-Shine Boy" in royal fashion 
as an encore. Then a freshman 
quartette, plus Bill Hall, sang a 
Negro spiritual Sophie Myers 
finished up the program with "An 
American in Paris." Jack Lem- 
bach, president of the freshmen 
class then told of the purpose of 
the program. Quoting from the 
letter that he read that is sent 
out to schools and churches, he 
read: "We, the freshman class, 
consider it an honor and privil- 
ege to start a Calvm C. Dougher- 
ty Memorial in memory of our 
beloved classmate who so inspir- 
ed us with his smiling courage 
before passing on. The memorial 
will be in the form of improved 
library facilities. The funds are 
being raised by the freshmen 
through soliciting from churches, 
and from clubs, business men, 
anr friends." Signed. Jack C. 
Leinbach and Owen L. Crouch, 
sponsor of the freshmen class. 
After a free-will offering was 
taken, the assembly sang the 
Alma Mater, 

Friday night was our first home 
game! About six. the cheerlead- 
er started rounding up the kids 
to start the snake dance and bon- 
fire The snake dance started at 
Hardin, picking up a few at 
Cheek and going on through Par- 
dee and ending at the bonfire in 
front of the store. The Pep band 
was there and furnished the mu- 
sic (?)? for the "Dragnet" yell. 
The Pep club then formed the 
"Bunny Hop" line and hopped 
around for a while with "Fight, 
fight, fight." thrown in. After 
this, they dismissed to go to the 
game It was certainly evident in 
the first quarter that Appala- 
chain State was ready for us but 
we showed 'em. We had a good 
cheering section and our cheer- 
leaders 3id a swell job. The Pep 
band played at half-time their 
famous "Hucklebuck." We beat 

There was supposed to be a 
Christmas tree up in Hardin by 
Saturday night but there was 
some difficulty in getting the 
tree and great difficulty in get- 
ting the decorations so that was 
delayed until Monday afternoon. 

Several of the students went to 
the game ^ at Concord Saturday 
night, George Davis, Marge San- 
ders, and Dr. Crouch took cars. It 
was a good game for Concord but 
somewhere along the way we lost 
out. Better luck is just around 
the corner. 

Finally the organ was ready, 
the decorations ready, and Miss 
Weimer was ready, and at 4 p.m. 
on Sunday. December 6, the 
organ recital began. Miss Ona 
Weimer played three groups of 
Christmas selections. Included in 
these were: "Savior of the Heath- 
en. Come," "O Thou. Of God the 
Father." 'The Journey to Beth- 
lehem," and as a finale. "Fan- 
tasia On Veni Emmanuel." About 
150 attended the concert. 

Christma.s Party 
Of Commerce Club 
Big Success 

The Commerce Club opened its 
social season Thursday evening. 
December 3. at 7:30 p.m.. in the 
parlors of Hardin Hall, with its 
annual Christmas party. 

The party got underway with 
Diane Walker, chairman of the 
Social Committee, presiding. The 
group joined in singing Christ- 
mas carols, with Katie Colbert 
and her accordion. Patsy Masters 
accompanied by Suzy Ellis, sang 
two vocal solos. "White Christ- 
mas" and "Blue Christmas." 

With the lights low and plenty 
of recorded Christmas music. 
Carol Wickes did a very beauti- 
ful chalk drawing. Mrs. Nice end- 
ed the entertainment with a very 
inspiring Christmas story. 

Refreshments, carrying out the 
Christmas theme in decorations, 
consisted of open-faced sand- 
wiches, punch, cake, ice- cream, 
mints and nuts, were served to 
approximately 25 members and 
guests of the club, and the spon- 
sor. Mr, Eugene Price and Mrs. 


A hillbilly and his bride went 
to New York for their honeymoon 
and bought tickets for one of the 
Broadway plavs. At the end of 
the first act, the hillbilly pre- 
sented himself at the box office 
and paid $1.40 extra to have his 
scats changed from the balcony 
to the orchestra floor. Ten min- 
utes after the second act started, 
he was back at the box office. 

"Give me our money back," 
he demanded. "That's the same

Christmas Pageant 
To Be Colorful 

And Inspiring 


The pageant which you will 
see tonight in the college audi- 
torium represents an end to an 
accomplishment that was brought 
about only through long and 
hard, but self-satisfying hours of 
rehearsal. Miss White is to be 
complimented in this, the fourth 
year of this presentation. This 
drama is one of the most out- 
standing programs of the school 
year. It has become more elabo- 
rate and beautiful through the 
years and serves as a high point 
of inspiration to those of us who 
witness it as we tr>' to capture 
again the events of the Nativity. 

The choir will provide a thema- 
tic musical background of fami- 
liar Christmas songs throughout 
the pageant. This is not only a 
project of the music department 
and the choir. Much acknowl- 
edgement and thanks must be 
given to the members of the stu- 
dent body who are in the play 
and also those who are respon- 
sible for the stagework. 

This has been our main ob- 
jective in this Christmas season 
but we have had other obliga- 
tions also. For instance, the choir 
made its debut at the banquet on 
Founder's Day. An extra heavy 
schedule prevented us from mak- 
ing another TV appearance be- 
fore Christmas, but on Decem- 
ber 9 we did present a concert at 
Mountain Home. Among the 
lighter numbers which wc per- 
formed were "Winter Wonder- 
land," "Twns the Night Before 
Christmas." and Miss Wcimer's 
own arrangement of "Jingle 
Bells." which, by the way. takes 
us to South Amcrcia, Vienna, ond 
to the days of the gay nineties, 
in a one-horse open sleigh. 

I guess that's the Milligan Col- 
lege Choir for 1953. We hope you " 
enjoy listening to us as much as 
we enjoy singing. Our oim for 
1954 — to do bigger and better 
things in the choir. 

And now. from the Milligan 
College Choir, to the students, 
faculty, alumni, and friends — 
Best wishes for a Happy Holiday.

tive and colorful occasion on May 
8. 1954, when Miss Betty Jeanne 
Snodgrass, daughter of Mr, and 
Mrs. Fred Snodgrass of Elizabeth- 
ton and Mr. Leonard Gallimore,

occasion for everj-one. 

Pardee Hall Has 

Neiv Furniture 


George Walker, from Canton. 
Ohio, solicited $500 to be used 
for furnishing the parlors of Par- 
dee HalL Mr. Walker is the father 
of Diane Walker, a student at 

President Deafi Walker asked 
the men's dormitory council to 
decide what was needed most 
urgently and it was decided that 
the money shuld be spent to buy 
tables and lamps. 

A committee was appointed and 
on Saturday. January 23, Pete 
Miller, Marvin Sweeny and Ma* 
moru Ishikawa along with Mrs. 
Duard Walker and Mrs. Dean 
Walker went to Johnson City and 
purchased the desired lamps and 
tables from Siler's Furniture 

Some of the furniture was de- 
livered consisting of three blonde 
finished end-tables and three 
wrought iron lamps. This furni- 
ture is to be on trial for the ap- 
proval of the dormitory residents. 

The other furnishings will be 
delivered soon, including three 
more end-tables, some lamps and 
a wrought iron chandelier for 
each of the two parlors. 

This furniture is very beauti- 
ful and very much appreciated by 
the Men of Pardee. We consider 
it not only "just another service 
rendered to the Men of Pardee," 
but also a blessing because it can 
serve as a quiet study hall with- 
out benefit of "overhead music." 


The Student Union building is 
now finished, both as to the ex- 
terior and interior surfaces: also 
the lighting and heating systems 
are in operation. But furnishings 
such as kitchen appliances and 
the tables and chairs are yet lack- 
ing; only one table-and-chairs' 
outfit is now on the premises. 

This project was launched on a 
pay-as-you-go basis and, continu- 
ing to use that policy, progress to- 
wards utilization of the building 
follows a system which is basic- 
ally sound. The Milligan College 
administration has financed the 
project to the extent of more 
than three thousand dollars and 
countless individuals and off- 
campus groups have heavily con- 
tributed toward the erection of 
this much needed structure. 

President Walker guesses that 
"we may begin operations in the 
building sometime in March." He 
believes that, "if we had at least 
two thousand dollars in sight, we 
could complete the job." 

Appliances will cost about fif- 
teen hundred dollars and the 
cost of the remainder of the table 
ad chairs' combination will slight- 
ly exceed a thousands dollars.

JSew Chapel System, 
Is Incaigurated 

A new series of Chapel Pro- 
grams has been inaugurated at 
Milligan College and although it 
follows along the religious theme 
of the half-hour periods it does so 
now in a more religious manner 
as it simulates a church service. 
The program is now more organ- 
ized and is more inspiring than 
it has been in the past. It is the 
idea of Owen Crouch, who 
thought that a more religious 
manner should be attained so 
that the students and faculty 
would appreciate the half-hour 
periods more.

We, the students, want to ask a few questions and we 
feel we are entitled to a direct answer. So someone — 
please take notice. 

First of all we want to know WHY the Student Union 
project has come to a standstill again? You will probably 
say, "why don't ou find out yourself?", but the fact is we 
just don't have time to go around chasing rainbows. This 
project has been extended over a period of four years and 
it looks like il might go another one or two years. We 
want to know why something isn't being done and why 
it can't be done? Why isn't someone appointed to look 
into this project and make an oral or written report to 
the school so as to satisfy our curiosity? WHY? 

Secondly, WHY is there so much controversy over the 
dining hall, a lot of gripes, accusations on both sides, 
bad feelings, and nothing done about it? Is this issue like 
the weather? WHY isn't someone appointed to look into 
this and make an oral or written report to the school? 
Why isn't something done? Why hasn't something been 
done? What is being done now? Why are we subject to 
blame? WHY? 

Third, WHY is the chapel problem just a lot of gripes 
and no action? Why are we subjected to boring speakers 
and no deviation from the schedule? To be religious is 
fine we agree, but couldn't we laugh once in awhile, 
couldn't we enjoy ourselves or do we — the students — fail 
to recognize the importance or purpose of these chapel 
programs? Do we have no basis to complain? Are we to 
be the recipients of everything the faculty or administra- 
tions dreams up — bad or good? Have we no voice (What 
about htis President Bill Thomas of the Student Council?) 
Why has no one looked into the pro and cons of this sub- 
ject? Why has no one explained to us the importance of 
this or the reason for not having ony other kind of pro- 
gram? WHY? 

Are there any answers to these questions? Who will 
answer them? If anyone desires to answer these ques- 
tions in a written report, space in the STAMPEDE is 
open to them. Why won't someone answer? WHY?

The Chapel '''Problern^^ 

I think it can be safely said that there is a chapel 
"problem" when many of the students consider the two 
half-hour programs each week a complete waste of time, 
Personally, that is not my opinion; but the opinion of the 
majority of the students should be considered. 

It is realized that a program could not be designed to 
please everyone. But a compromise might be worked out 
by having outside speakers bring a talk, with emphasis 
on religion, only one day a week; the other day would 
bring faculty members, students, and others, with talks 
which might or might not be of a religious nature. 

This is merely a suggestion. If the students feel that 
the present programs should be improved, they should 
voice their opinions. I would like to make it clear that 
I om not passing judgment on the chapel programs; but 
I do believe that this principle should exist; the chapel 
programs, with their wonderful opportunity for fellow- 
ship, should not be such that the students consider them ' 
a waste of time and dread for 10 A. M. to come on Tues- 
day and Thursday. 

If you want a change, speak up!

of the people. Unlike Great Bri- 
tain, in Russia the people are vir- 
tual slaves of the all-powerful 
government. This system is the 
ultimate in the relations of the 
government to the economy and 
the people in it. 

Something remains to be said 
concerning the relationship be- 
tween these four theories of gov- 
ernment. History has shown that 
the trend is always toward a more 
powerful government. No democ- 
racy or government of the people, 
has lasted more than 200 years. 
They give way to a government 
over the people. 

Up to this point I have only 
given focts. Now I shall present 
some of my own opinions on these 
facts. First. I believe that a cen- 
tralized government is undesir- 
able, whether it is Socialism or 
Communism. All men are created 
with certain rights: life, liberty, 
the pursuit of happiness. 1 be- 
lieve a government can and would 
take away these rights if it be- 
came greatly centralized.

Are You An "Index To Others"? 

"One all-important factor in the group's acceptance or 
rejection of an individual is the extent to which he con- 
forms to the opinions and ways of the group. Fads be- 
come extremely important, and refusal to accept them 
may mean group exclusion. "• 

From this study of college youth it seems that most 
college students dare not refuse the enticement of sign- 
ing-up for a four-year popularity insurance policy. The 
initial payment, of course, is that the student surrender 
his right to be an individual; then payments are made 
by the conformity method. That is, staying in line with 
the current vogue of opinions, signature usage, dress, or 

This insurance seems to really work: the policy of

that? Well, whether you can or 
not, it's true. No drastic out-

there'll never be another "night

The crowd was a little bit 
smaller for the Maryville game 
than usual, but then, since it was 
the night before semesters, it was 
understandable. We beat 'em and 
it was a good game so those who 
weren't there just missed some- 

Then came the three days of 
long faces and sleepy eyelids — 
semesters — and to make thifigs 
even worse, we had a game with 
State Saturday and we lost. 
We've got to hand it to our fel- 
lows, 'cause they didn't let 'em 
io it without some effort. 

No school Monday, and believe 
me. everybody needed that day 
3f rest. Several new students ar- 
rived on campus and got all reg- 
istered and ready to go. There 
are five girls in Hardin and one 
in Cheek. About four new fellows 
tor Pardee. Besides these, are 
several new day students.

Her tonsils, of course.

Sutherland and Dick Moore 
brought two loads of kids up from 
Louisville to look over the school. 
They got to see us lose to Austin 
Peay but they didn't beat us 
much, so they know we've got a 
good team down here. 

The first of February, we had 
J game at Lincoln Memorial and 
we won! That cowbell sounded 
off four times that night; the last 
time was about 2 in the morning. 
At least, they let the girls know 
Ihat they woi;i- Gee. thanks, fel-

On the 9th. Carson-Newman 
came up for a bout and we knock-

is that we had a basketball game 
and won. What a team they had! 
The five on the floor and the 
referee, too. The Fellowship Ban- 
quet was that night and there 
were men all over the place. Af- 
ter they had eaten supper they 
all came over to the game What 
a night it was. After the game 
we really had a bout and that is 
using the term loosely. The kids 
on third in Hardin started throw- 
ing water down on second, so 
someone pulled the fuses from 
the third. Third came down in 
what one might call an army 
ready for attack. Second held 
their ground and the commanding 
officer from first came up. It was 
thought for a while that three or 
four might be put on MP but it 
all blew over, new fuses were 
bought, and everyone spoke the 
next day. 

A little blue slip appeared on 
the bulletin board the next day 
saying. "A meeting of all girls of 
Hardin today at 1 o'clock. MW." 
Everyone had their say and the 
meetmg was adjourned and ev- 
erybody became friends again. 

On the llth. we went out to 
State and boy, did we ever play 
ball? Don't think for a minute wc 
don't have a team — we had them 
so scared. Why, we played better 
ball all the way around, but then 
those last few minutes we had to 
get all excited. Maybe someday 
we'll beat "em. 

The Sweetheart Banquet at 
First Church was not as well sup-

Saturday, February I 3th, our 
last home game of the season was 
called "Phil Roush night," Right 
before the game, Bill Thomas, as 
president of the Student Council, 
presented Phil with a beautiful 
identification bracelet. Emor>' 
and Henry was our guest and they 
walked off with top score. After 
the game everyone went out to 
Patrick's Grill at Pan-am. The 
fellows had great big, enormous 
steaks. Gobs of people were there 
and seemed to have had a great 
big time.

len Sample. Margaret Sanders, 
and Mary Jane Kincheloe were 
chosen as campus beauties. Miss 
White. Pal Masters, and Grant 
Layman sang solos. Jerry Wag- 
ner led group singing, accom- 
panied by Sophia on the piano. 
She was so nervous — she had a 
visitor for four or five days. We 
can't fail to mention the decora- 
tions because they were really 
pretty. Little hearts and cupids 
all over the place It really look- 
ed as if it might be St. Valentine's 
Day in spite of the fact that it was 
a few days late. 

On the same night, Milligan 
started their weekly TV program 
on Tuesday night at 6:30-6:45, The 
quartette sang on the first pro- 

On the 18th there was a fenc- 
ing match here with L. M. U, Sue 
Jackson, Lorenna, Pat Reitzel, 
Anne MacDonald, Margaret San- 
ders, all made a good showing 
but we tied with them for a score 
of 9 to 9- Jim Fox was the referee 
of the match or whatever you call 
that person in fencing. 

On the same day we played 
Union at the V, S. A. C. tourna- 
ment out at State. Its was so-o-o 
exciting and we were just sure to 
win there for a white but the 
final score ended up: Union 64, 
Milligan 60. 

The 19th was quite a week-end 
around Milligan, State won the 
tournament Saturday night. Bud 
Gaslin went home to get his 
brother married. Joe Hill, Jim 
Hawes. Helen Lewis, June Jaynes, 
Betty Alderman. Ruthie Cagle, 
Pat Masters. Donnie Williams. 
Bill Davis, and Shad Bowling all 
went home for the week-end. 
Doug Crowder spent the week- 
end with Gorda. Bob Rhea and 
Roger elites visited the campus 
on Sunday. Carolyn Green 
sprained her ankle and had to 
stay in bed; she's been hobbling 
around ever since, Barbara Will- 
iams had a week-end guest, Ar- 
lene Seal has SCARLET fever 
and a big red sign was put on 
her door. Sam and Sally have 
scarlatina and can't come to 
school for a week. None of the 
kids that have Sunday School 
classes could teach them because 
they too might have the germ, 
Mr. Neth preached at Hopwood. 

A petition was circulated on 
the 22nd about the food in the 
cafeteria. Starting then THERE 
That was the final word! 

On TV this week Pat Musters. 
Pat Bishop, and Carol Wurdle 
and the Quorleltc had a noon- 
hour rehearsal. It was real cule. 
The Walkers and Dean Oukes 
hove a full house each Tuesday. 

The game at Carson-Newman 

really proved to be quite interest- 
ing. From all the accounts it was 
a rather rough game, one might 
say. It was rumored that Glen 
got his head bashed in and Al got 
two teeth knocked out but they 
came back alive anyway, We won. 
too — 90-91. 

The fellows went on to Mary- 
ville from Carson-Newman and 
came home with another win for 
usT We're so proud of them. 

Friday night, the 26th, Milli- 
gan had a 30-minute TV pro- 
gram from 9:30 to 10:00. The 
quartette and sextette sang sev- 
eral numbers, Pat Masters and 
Donnie Miller sang solos. Then 
Pat Masters, Barbara Rice and 
Susie Ellis did an old-fashioned 
scene that was real cute. Miss 
While and Miss Wiemer are real- 
ly doing a fine job. 

A whole gang of kids went to 
the game at Emory and Henry 
Saturday night, the 27th. Old 
Tommie Hawkes was there to see 
the game. We had a pretty rough 
game and had to bow to them 
with a score of 82-75. 

Mr. Neth preached at Hopwood 
the 28th, 

Monday. March 1st. Girls start- 
ed screaming at 7 o'clock in the 
morning. One would think there 
was six feet of snow instead of 
six inches. These rebels just don't 
see snow much, so- they don't 
know how to act. The electricity 
was off so after first period 
classes were over school dismiss- 
ed for the day. Diane Walker, 
Jackie, Barbara Williams, Bob 
Walther. Bob VanBuren, Gordy, 
and a few others were really hav- 
ing a time out in front of Hardin 
there for a white. It wasn't safe 
to stick your head out the door. 
The front window at Cheek got 
broken but there were no other 
casualties. We had a fire in the 
fireplace at Hardin, popped pop- 
corn, and played a new game — 

Sometime Monday, Bill Mahan 
was taken to Memorial Hospital 
and not released until Tuesday 
afternoon. He's better but he has 
to lake it easy for a while. 

Monday morning before chapel. 
Jeanette Brown fell on the ice in 
front of Hardin and fractured her 
skull. She was taken inot Ma- 
morial Hospital and cannot have 
any visitors for two weeks; Let's 
all send her a card instead! Wo 
certainly hope you're back with 
us real soon. Jcanelte. 

Wc hear by way of the grape- 
vine that Mr, Neth has been ap- 
proved by the board nt Hopwood 
for the minister there. 

Valentine Party 
Rated Huge Success 

The annual Valentine Party of 
Milligan College look place on 
February 18. 1954. It was rated a 
success by all who attended. It 
was a be,Tutiful scene as it dipicl- 
ed a sidewalk cafe with quartet 
tables and a central theme of 
Clouds with Silver hearts com- 
mg out of them. This signified 
the "Rain of Hearts." Red and 
while streamers and a large red 
heart with red lights sprinkled 
about it, carried out the Sweet- 
heart theme fully. 

Various skits were presented 
during the evening adding to the 
delightful atmosphere of the oc- 
casion. While refreshments were 
served. Katie Colbert and her ac- 
cordion students played numerous 
selections for the entertainment 
of the guests. By popular request, 
Katie played several selections of 
her own in her wonderful style. 

After refreshments were served 
the selection of Sweethearts of 
Milligan College took place. Four 
beautiful girls were selected from 
the four classes. Marilyn Smith 
was selected from the Freshman 
Class; Ellen Sample from the 
Sophomore Class; Marge Sanders 
from the Junior Class; and Mary 
Jane Kincheloe from the Senior 

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed 
the party and looks forward to 
next year's party with the beauti- 
ful Sweethearts.

stage — as they should — so as not 
to detract from the service. The 
Chapel Choir is another factor 
that adds to the service. 

This is a fine service and puts 
religion on an order that leaves 
nothing to be desired in the way 
of an inspiring and beautiful 
service- The only thing lacking — 
sometimes — is a good speaker. 

The chorus girl was telling the 
other girls in the dressing room 
about her birthday party. 

"You should have seen thp 
cake," she told her companions.. 
"It was marvelous. There were 
seventeen candles on it — one for 
each year." 

There was a disbelieving sil- 
ence for a moment or two, then 
her best friend smiled. 

"Seventeen candles, eh?" she 
purred, "What did you do — burn 
them at both ends?"

Now that the basketball season 
is completely over, it's time to 
turn dur thoughts to the coming 
baseball season — 

My guess is that most candi- 
dates for the team will begin con- 
ditioning as soon as the weather 
permits — 

One consolation about this 
year's prospects — they only have 
one way to go— 

This year's season and sched- 
ule will be somewhat marred by 
the fact that spring vacation 
starts about the time games 
should get into full swing 

In looking back over the past 
basketball season, we can all say 
that we've thoroughly enjoyed 
watching the Buffs give a very 
good account of themselves 
against all competitors in spite of 
lack of height. 

We all feel we have a much 
better club than the record shows 
and will be looking for and ex- 
pecting some of those beautiful 
and elusive trophies to be brought 
home next year. 

With the final regular season 
game of the year, Phil Roush, 

only senior on the club, per- 
formed for the last time as a 
member of the fighting Buffaloes 
— and what a performance that 
was! — Phil stunned the Emory &t 
Henry Wasps with a total of nine 
field goals in twelve attempts — 
and all coming from different 
shots and different angles topped 
off by a beautiful left-hand hook 
shot while going full speed! Yes. 
though we lost, it was a great 
game and a great individual per- 
formance turned in by a good 

At this writing, not very many 
people have signed up for var- 
sity tennis. All those wishing to 
try out for the team are urged to 
sign the paper available in the 
lobby of Pardee Hall. 

It seems that Miss Mynatt has 
uncovered some hidden talent in 
her g>'m classes. We did not know 
there was a fencer on the cam- 
pus until their rousing defeat of 
L, M. U. to the tune of 13-3. How- 
ever, L. M. U. atoned some what 
for their feeble showing by hold- 
ing the lassies to a draw in the 
return bouts. 

Milligan Loses Out In SMAC To Carson - Nenman 

— Jl^tuffi Home After 

First Game 

Jefferson City— The Buffaloes 
of Milligan sadly retraced their 
tracks back to Johnson City 
Thursday night. March -Ith, after 
losing a heart-breaking and thrill- 
ing game in the first round of the 
Smoky Mountain Athletic Confer- 
ence Tournament by the score of 
63-62. A heart-breaking game to 
the valiant men of Walker and a 
thrilling game for the Eagles of 

The score stood in the lost four 
minutes with Milligan 59-50 and 
then Shields Smith of Carson- 
Newman came into the game to 
spark the Eagles with eight 
straight points! Mellinger. Ayer, 
and Bivcns then made up the dif- 
ference with a foul shot and two 
buckets to take the game away 
just as the buzzer went off to end 
the game. 

This game cannot be blamed on 
an>one, as Coach Walker and his 
men played hard to win, but the 
Eagles played harder! It was a 
gallant tribute that the Eagles 
gave their Coach who was in the 
hospital and couldn't be with his 
boys. The Eagles proved that they 
were really fired up the next 
night CFriday) as they pushed 
first-ranked Emory and Henry in- 
to an overtime only to lose by 
four points.

The team is composed of the

Athletics Rapped CAMPUS POLITICS ? 


By Dick Bibler 

Atlantic City. N. J— Sixteen 
thousand members of the Ameri- 
can Association of School Ad- 
ministrators, gathered here in 
convention this week, heard from 
their Educational Policies Com- 
mission a plea that big-time high 
school athletics be abolished. 

"High - pressure competition, 
with overemphasis on the impor- 
tance of winning, should not be 
sanctioned," the commission de- 
clared. It called for eliminating 
high school championships, tour- 
naments, long seasons and 
"bowls." and urged financing of 
school sports from general funds 
rather than gate receipts! 

Present "hysterical overempha- 
sis" on a winning team, the com- 
mission held, means that teach- 
ers are often forced to pamper 
the star athlete, coaches forget 
good sportsmanship and the 
piipils suffer mental or emotional 
damage. Instead, all pupils should 
be helped to take part in sports. 

The commission's report caused 
considerable controversy among 
the school administrators.
