HISTORY OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE. 



Millsaps College, located in Jackson, Alississippi, is the property of the Meth- 
odist Episcopal Cnurch South. It is owned and controlled jointly by tne Missis- 
sippi and North Mississippi Conferences. It was estabLshed under a charter is- 
sued by the Mississippi Legislature m the year 1S90. The terms of the charter 
prescribe that the incorporators "mav accept donations of real and personal 
property for the benefit of the College hereafter to be established by them, and 
contributions of monev or negotiable securities of every kind in aid of the en- 
dowment of such College, and may confer degrees and giye certificates of scholar- 
ship, and do and perform all other acts for the benefit of said institution and the 
promotion of its welfare that are not repugnant to the Constitution and By-Laws 
of this State or of the UnUed States, subject, however, to the approval of the said 
two Conferences." 

The College has its remote origin in the general policy of the iMethodist Church 
to maintain institutions under its own control for higher learning in the arts and 
sciences, as well as for special training of voung m.n iters. 

At the annual session of the Mississippi Conference of V cksburg, on December 
7, 1888, the foll')wing reiolutions were adopted bv a large majority of the Confer- 
ence: 

" I. That a College for males, under the auspices and control of the iNIethodist 
Episcopal Church South, ought to be established at some central and accessible 
point in the State of Mississippi ; 

"2. That a committee of three laymen and three preachers be appointed to 
confer With a Lke committee to be appointed by the North iMississipp; Conference 
to formulate jjlans and to receive offers of donations of lands, buildings, or money 
for that purpo:;e, and to report to the next session of th.s conference." 

In accordance with this action, the President of the Conference, Bishop R. K. 
Hargrove, appointed the follow.ng committee: Rev. T. L. i\Ielleii, Rev. W. C. 
Black, Rev. A. F. Watkins, Maj. R. W. Millsaps, Col. ^^'. L. Nugent, and Dr. Luther 
vSexton. 

On December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi Conference met in vStarksville, 
Mississippi, Bishop C. B. Galloway presiding. The Rev. T. L. Mellen appeared 
and reported the action taken by the Mississippi Conference. The following tran- 
script from the North Mississippi Conference Journal gives the response made bv 
that body : 

"Resolved, 1. That a College for the education of bo^■s and young men should 
be established in the State of Mississippi under the auspices of the Methodist Epis- 

^ 18 



copal Church South; 2. that a committee of three laymen and three ministers be 
appointed to confer with a like committee already appointed by the Mississippi 
Conference." 

The following committee was accordingly appointed: Rev. J.J. Wheat, Rev. 
S. M. Thames, Rev. T. J. Newell, Hon. G. D. Shands, Capt. D. L. vSweatman, and 
Mr. J. B. Streater. 

To the action of these Conferences we may trace the direct origai of the College. 

The joint commission, constituted by the action summarized above, met in 
the city of Jackson in January, 1889. The Rev. Dr. J. J. Wheat was called to the 
chair. In stating the purpose of the meeting, he made a stirring appeal in behalf 
of the proposition to establish a Methodist college in Mississippi for the education 
of young men. In response to this earnest appeal, Maj. R. W. Millsaps, a member 
of the commission, proposed to give $50,000 to endow the institution, provided 
the Methodists of Mississippi would give a sum equal to this amount for said pur- 
pose. This proposition was enthusiasticallv approved, and after a plan of pro- 
cedure was adopted, Bishop Chas. B. Galloway was invited to conduct a campaign 
in the interest of the proposed endowment fund. Under the direction of this dis- 
tinguished leader, the most gratifying progress was reported from time to time, 
The report submitted to the Conferences by the committee in December, 1889. 
refers to the movement in the following language : 

"The canvass, on account of the numerous necessitated absences of Bishop 
Galloway from the State, could not be continuously carried on, but even the partial 
canvass made, embracing not more than one-fifth of our territory, resulted in the 
most gratifying and encouraging success. The interest awakened in the enterprise 
has extended beyond the limits of our own Church and is felt b}' every denomina- 
tion of Christians and by every section of the State. It is safe to say that no effort 
of Methodism has ever kindled such enthusiasm in our vState or evoked such liberal 
offerings to the Lord. The fact has been demonstrated that the Church is pro- 
foundly convinced that the College is absolutely a necessity." The report con- 
tinues: "vSo high is the appreciation of the value of the proposed institution that 
numerous towns in the State nave entered into earnest competition to secure the 
location of the College within the limits of their respective borders, offering from 
$10,000 to $36,000, and from twenty to eightv acres of land." 

In December, 1889, Rev. A. F. Watkins, a member of the Mississippi Confer- 
ence, was appointed a special agent to cooperate with Bishop Galloway in all mat- 
ters pertaining to the endowment of the proposed College. As the work of raising 
the sum designated in the original proposition progressed, and $25,000 had been 
collected, Maj. Millsaps, in the vear 1890, paid $25,000 into the College treasury. 

In December, 1S92, the Rev. J. W. Chambers was appointed agent for the 
College, and on December 30, 1893, he reported that the full amount had been col- 
lected to meet the terms of Maj. Millsap's proposition, and thereupon $25,000 was 
immediatelv paid by Maj. M.llsaps to the Executive Committee, and the following 
resolution was adopted; 

19 



"ReS'ilved, That the Executive Committee return our most heartfelt thanks 
to Maj. R. W. Millsaps for his second gift of ;p25,ooo, this day turned over to us. 
For his princely liberality and unfaltering interest in the great enterprise so happily 
and successfully inaugurated. Church and State owe him a large debt of gratitude." 

The Conference, having provided for a Board of Trustees, the joint commis- 
sion dissolved in Januarv, 1890. This Board, to which was referred the matter of 
organizing the College, was composed of the following gentlemen: 

Bishop Chas. B. Galloway, President. Rev. W. C. Black, D.D. 

Rev. J. J. Wheat, D.D. Rev. S. M. Thames. 

Rev. T. T. Newell. • ' ' Rev. R. M. Standifer. 

Rev. T. L. Mellen. ■ . ■ ■ Rev. A. F. Watkins. 

Rev. C. G. Anders, D.D. . . Hon. G. D. Shands. 

Capt. D. L. Sweatman. Mr. J. B. vStreater. 

Mr. Tohn Trice. Maj. R. W. Millsaps. 

Col. "W. L. Nugent. " Dr. Luther Sexton. 
iHon. M. M. Evans. 

After the Board organized under the charter, the question of locating the Col- 
lege was considered with great care. The Board met repeatedly to consider the 
offers made bv different towns, and finally, on May 20, 1891, while in session at 
Winona, M.ssissippi, decided to locate the College in Jackson, the capital of the 
State. The citizens of Jackson contributed $21,000 for grounds and buildings, 
and to this sum Maj. M llsaps added $15,000. Plans for a commodious main build- 
ing were immediately procured, grounds were purchased, and in a comparatively 
short time buildings were in process of erection. 

When it became evident that everything would soon be in readiness for formal 
opening of the College for the reception of students, the Board of Trustees, at a 
meeting held in Jackson, Aprd 28, 1892, began the work of organizing a faculty of 
instruction. 

The Rev. W. B. i\Iurrah was elected President. Many applications were con- 
sidered for professorships, and Mr. N. A. Patilo was elected Professor of Mathe- 
matics, and Mr. L. W. Weber was elected Professor of the English Language and 
Literature. Prof. Weber was the acting Professor of EngLsh at the Southwest- 
ern Un,ver.5ity, Georgetown, Texas, when he was bv tnis action called to Millsaps 
College. 

At a subsequent meeting of the Board of Trustees held July 13, 1892, iMr. G. C. 
Swearingen was elected Professor of Latin and Greek, and the Rev. M. M. Black 
was elected Principal of the Preparatory Department. Both of these gentlemen 
had recently taken post-graduate degrees at the Vanderbilt University, Nashville 
Tennesiee. 

The necessary buildings having been erected, the first scholastic session began 
with appropriate ceremonies September 29, 1892. 

At the regular meeting of the Board of Trustees in June, 1S93, Prof. A. M. 
Muckenfuss was elected Professor of Chemistry and Physics. 

In June, 1894, Rev. M. M. Black resigned the principalship of the Preparatory 



Department to enter on the work of regular pastorate. In reorganizing the depart- 
ment, it was made more distinctively a training school with independent jurisdic- 
tion, and Prof. R. vS. Ricketts was elected Head ^Master, with Pro*'. E. h- Bailev 
as Assistant Master. 

The formal establishment of the Department of Modern Languages and His- 
tory was effected by action of the Board of Trustees in June, 1897, and Prof. J. P. 
Hanner was elcted to fill the chair thus created. Work, however, had been offered 
in these subjects prior to this Lme. 

The organization indicated bv this review represents the status of affairs ex- 
isting up to that t,me; but the peisoiuiel of the Faculty has been changed in sev- 
eral departments. Dr. J. A. Moore was elected Professor in Mathematics in June, 
1894, to succeed Prof. N. A. Patilo, which chair he has held since. In June, 1900, 
Prof. D. H. Bishop was elected to the chair of English to succeed Prof. Weber. 
Prof. Bishop held this chair, where he won the highest regard and respect of the 
Faculty, Board of Trustees, and especially the student-body, until 1904, when he 
was elected to the chair of Enghsh in the State Uuiversitv at Oxford, Mississippi. 
In I goo Prof. B. E. Young was elected to the chair of Modern Languages and His- 
tory, which place he held unt.l 1904, when he was elected Adjunct Professor in 
Romance Language in Vanderbilt Un.vers.ty. In 1903 Prof. J. E. \A'almslev was 
elected Acting Professor of Modern Languages and History, as Prof. Young was 
away in Europe studying. In 1904 Prof. Walmsley was elected Professor m His- 
tory, which was made separate from the Modern Languages. Professor OLn H. 
Moore was elected to the chair of Modern Languages. To the chair of English, 
made vacant by the resignation of Prof. Bishop, Dr. A. A. Kern was elected. In 
1900 Prof. E. L. Ba.lev resigned as AsSj.stant Master ,n the Preparatory Depart- 
ment, and Prof. G. ^^'. Huddleston was elected in his place. Dr. J. M. SulLvan 
was elected to the chair of Physics and Chemistry in 1902 to fill the vacancy caused 
by the resignation of Prof. Muckenfuss. 

The remarkable facilities for conducting a law school in Jackson led to the 
establishment in 1896 of a Law Department. The Hon. Edward Mayes, ex-Chan- 
cellor of the iMississippi State University, and for over fourteen years a professor 
of law in that institution, was engaged to take active control of this department. 
Dr. Mayes has associated with him as active professors Judge A. H. Whitfield, 
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the State, and Judge Wm. R. Harper, a dis- 
tinguished member of the Jackson bar. 

In addition to the buildings first provided, consisting of the main college build- 
ing, the President's house and houses for the accommodation of students, the facil- 
ities of the institution were greatly enlarged during the session of 1895-96 by the 
generosity of Maj. M.llsaps in the gJt of the Webster Science Hall, at a cost of $10,- 
000. In 190 1 Mr. Dan. A. James, of Yazoo City, built an observatory for the col 
lege in honor of the memory of his father, Mr. Peter James, and of his brother, I\Ir. 
Samuel James, and furnished it with a magnificent telescope, thus enabling us to 
offer the finest advantages in the study of Astronomv. 

21 



The evolutionary process through which Millsaps College has passed during 
the first ten years of its history has developed an ever-increasing demand for better 
dormitory and dining-hall facilities. This need was supplied in the gift of Maj. 
Millsaps of the property formerly known as Jackson College. The splendid brick 
structure thus secured, together with other buildings admirably adapted to college 
uses, enables the institution to adequately meet the demands made upon it. With 
an endowment of more than Sioo.ooo, and buildings and grounds worth approx- 
imately $100,000 more, it rests on a foundation which guaranteees its perpetuity. 
It has the support of a great religious denomination, vet it is not sectarian in its 
policv, but numbers among its patrons representatives of all the Christian Churches. 
(3ne of the purposes the College keeps constantly in view is indicated by the follow- 
ing section of the Charter: 

"The cost of education shall, as far as practicable, be reduced to the lowest 
point consistent with efficient operation of said College; and every reasonable 
effort shall be made to bring a collegiate education within the ability of the poorer 
classes of the State "

IN AFTER YEARS. 



The Class of 1905, so far-famed in its day, seemed to have passed into obHv- 
ion. Trv where I might, nothing could be found of its mighty lawyers, destined 
to purify our political atmosphere; of tlie preachers, almost bishops on their grad- 
uation dav; o:- its financiers, with their Midas touch coining millions and endowing 
their alma mater with half. I read the great current biographies; they were not 
there. I searched the history of our country; none were there found. Our pro- 
fessors had told us those graduates intending to turn the whole world oyer in a day, 
or, with a sugar-coated dose, cure all known evils, would be sorely disappointed. 
But thev spoke of college men in general — there was real merit and high ideals in 
our class, and all had the invincible spirit to strive and not to yield. The world 
had grown so cold and unappreciative of my talent that long ago I had become 
pessimistic, and finally resigned to my surroundings. But surely it could not have 
been so cruel to all. 

One dav I went back to the scenes of my college days to see if happily I might 
trace mv comrades' course in life. The buildings were all changed, and it looked 
like home no more. McGilvray was the only one left. Some preps, upon whom 
we had looked with utter disdain, irreverently sat in our seats — insolent, arrogant, 
and conceited. The learned doctors stared at my question, and even the Professor 
of Current History looked blank. One or two rememoered some, but the rest had 
passed out of their minds. Friendless I was, and a stranger, ignored on the spot 
where once I had power. Dejected, I went otit and sat under the old elm tree by 
the college steps. Presently, I saw a book lying in the grass. The backs looked 
familiar, and I found it was published bv Hinds & Noble. On the front was wTit- 
ten, "This will all mysteries explain." I knew he had been authority on all points 
in my school days. Suddenly it dawned upon me that it could explain Xaugnty- 
Five's whereabouts. I opened it. The frontispiece was the picture of a little cabin, 
snugly nestled in the woods. In the yard was an old-fashioned well, a battling 
board, and all the surroundings bespoke antiquity and satisfaction. Upon the 
stile — for gate there w-as none — sat a burly, awkward-looking man, holding a har- 
nessed mule by the bridle, and with the other hand gesticulating with another rus 
tic. His hair and bristling beard were dark-red, and bv this I knew it was that 
Carruth. I was surprised at the sight, for he had given great proniise in college. 

Having a fascination for pictures, I hastily turned over the leaves to see if I 
could find another. There was one it seemed of a tramp, with a full allowance of 
stomach, aimlessly ambling along. That, at least, I knew had nothing to do with 

36 



our class. But the man looked familiar. His shoes were tied together and swung 
over his shoulder. He carried a carpet-bag satcnel, which had the catch broken, 
and was hanging open. Within I saw a bulk)' sermon, a bottle, and a letter from 
New Mexico. And I knew it was Hall. 

I turned over, disgusted with the slanderous picture, till a more pleasing one 
met my eyes. It was a man of physical rotundity, as well as apparent metaphys- 
ical profundity. He was doing nothing, and had evidently become proficient in 
the practice. In every line of his features was written conscious and indifferent 
superiority. Beside his chair lay a huge pile of Bobashei.as, '0,5, which he seemed 
to prize highly. One lay open on the table and underscored with a large blue pencil 
was J. B. Ricketts' name. 

Another was Weems before a glass, striving to outeat his image. Either from 
fatness or a boil, he could not rise; but he was telling yarns to a gaping crowd. 

I began to read of McGee, for the book said he had gotten contrarj', and would 
not let his picture be made. It told of tne hard road he had traveled, of the diffi- 
culties surmounted, of his love for the unfortunate convicts, and added he was then 
at Oakley Farm preaching, with his white duck suit of clothes. I could not at 
the time hunt up our President, so I read on: 

" R. P. Fikes has procured him a work, a wife, and a wig, and is in a prosperous 
condition. He has twelve churches, preaches at three each Sunday, and eats 
chicken pie as often. He has only one sermon, and will continue to give it till the 
congregation profit by the teaching therein. One thing his preaching has accom- 
plished — his sermon is so long it gives the people a better conception of eternity." 

T. M. Bradley had him a mule and a piny- woods circuit. He had, in addition, 
the Methodist preachers' failing, an amazingly large family. He had just held 
Quarterly Conference, and had gotten $8.00 and some vegetables. 

"Sally" Barrier had gotten a blow upon his head, and unconsciously turned 
State's evidence for stealing a turkey. But no one would believe him on oath. 
He was now on a slimy delta bayou trying to live out the romance of his "Legend 
of the Yazoos." It would be some time before he got killed, for that was a very 
prolonged episode. 

" W. N. Duncan has won greatf ame in 'pounding out the gospel.' " Then the 
pesky thing began to quote his sermon. I had great respect for his scholarship 
and I waded half-way through, then fell asleep. 

I heard afaint rumbling; it increased, and I distinguished the words, "Your 
Honor, we had a case similar to this in Kemper County." Graham was pleading 
for a negro w^ho had stolen a hog, and was telling off his points on his little finger. 

The scene changed. Purcell was thumping a rickety pulpit, and yelling at 
the top of his voice: " Men and women, loving sweethearts and beaux, we '11 have 
dinner on the grounds." 

A train went by. I saw Simmons sitting complacently on a store step. He 
said he had been counting the trains all day and that was the third one. 

The nc)ise increased. I saw a dirty, dingy school-house on the hill. The chil- 

37 



dren were studying at the top of their voices, and on a three-legged punching-stool 
with his legs crossed and brass specs on h.s big nose, sat Allen. 

I heard a thundering sound, as of Talmage preaching to his thousands. M'hy 
he should be in such a forsaken church I could not imagine; yet it was his sermon 
evidently. I drew nearer, and heard, " Betraved by the misgivings of time"; and 
I knew O. W. Bradley was still preaching. 

The scene changed. It was a crowded theater, and the people were laughing 
till I thought their sides would split. On the stage was Pittman, his hair like a 
porcupine, a Collegian in one h^p-pocket and a Jackson daily in the other. From 
them ]iroceeded all his wit. I listened, and hearing nothing at which to laugh 
asked a man near me why he was going on in this manner. He said : "It is not 
what that fellow is saying but what a fool he is making of himself. I nnself be- 
gan to laugh, and felt a pain in my side. Next, Prof. Ackland had me ry the col- 
lar, turning loose a long string of choice adjectives. Ibegged off, asked him would 
it rain, told him they should get him an assistant, and we parted better fnends 
than ever. ; " '/ ' " ' ' . - ^ . .. . ■. 

To mv surprise and consternation, none of us were bringing great things to 
pass. The world had been hard on us — all but our Lttle sponsor. I met her, a 
beautiful young ladv, and she spoke. iNIy spirit was revived by the faint realiza- 
tion that she, at least, had not forgotten Xaughty-Five. After all, we were out in 
the role of common men, do^ng a daily work that must be done, working quietly 
and honestly, reforming maybe a nation still, but doing it l^y reforming ourselves.

SOPHOMORE CLASS POEM. 



\Mien chilling puffs of winter's cold and icv blasts, 
And days of sleet and snow and biting frost have passed, 
Then balmy breezes blow from out the southern zone, 
And fan the tight-cased buds till they are fully blown; 

Then wide in rich profusion on each bough they spread, 
And solid green supplants the dull autumnal red, 
Then slowly darkens as the summer days wear on, 
And turns to crimson when the summer days are gone — 

Just so the Freshman takes the faded Senior's place; 
Repletes the college-roll when Seniors run their race; 
The Freshmen, who are quite as new and green at first 
As are the tender leaves when from the buds they burst. 
Are, by a session spent in earnest quest of knowledge, 
Promoted to the Sophomore, the finest class in college. 



Enthused witn tennis, ball, and gym, 
And healthy, active, Strong of limb. 
We shun the monster Sickness grim, 
\\'e robust vSophomores. 

If nightlv study was not late 
Sheepskins would linger, sure as fate. 
And when they came, be out of date, 
We sleepy Sophomores. 

When hard exams are on us thrust. 
And boys in other classes bust. 
The Soph'mores always pass — I trust; 
We luck)' Sophomores. 

We Soph'mores are to love inclined; 
Our thoughts are of an amorous kind. 
Of our best girls we left behind ; 

We gallant Sophomores. 

As fine as ever Nature wrought. 
As smart as ever teacher taught. 
Whose futures are with brightness fraught, 
5 We hopeful Sophomores.

THE PRESIDENT'S WAY. 



"All right, Jimmy," said the President of the college to the exceedingly bash- 
ful small boy who stood before him, "tell vour mother I thank her. Good-bye." 

When Jimmy, thus dismissed, had withdrawn the President re-read a note 
he had brought. It was from Jimmy's mother, the landlady of one of the college 
boarding-houses, and ran something like this: 
'Dr. E. R. Thompson: 

' ' Dear vSir, — Some of my boys are planning a chicken-hunt for to-night. You 
had better look out for yours. Respectfully, Mrs. Brown." 

"Very kind of her," he mused, "yery kind indeed." 

There was a twinkle in his blue eyes as he turned to his desk and drew forth 
an almanac. 

"The moon 's all right for it," he eaid. 

A bell rang, a class came into the office for recitation, and the day passed 
much as usual. 

It was near midnight, and the moon had set, when the President, crouching 
behind a grape arbor in his back yard, heard the gate close softly. There was the 
uneyen tread of seyeral pairs of feet, and whispers, at first indistinct, became quite 
audible, as seyeral dark forms approached. 

As they passed the arbor the Pre ident straightened up, and, under coyer of 
the black darkness, joined the crowd as they drew near the great old apple tree, 
where his beloyed Plymouth Rocks were wont to repose. The tree was nearly 
reached, when the President, to whom the sport of raiding chicken roosts was 
either a new or a forgotten one, was horritied to feel a growing and uncontrollable 
desire to sneeze. 

"This plagued night air," he thought, trving neryously all the tricks he had 
eyer heard of to keep one from sneezing. But all were useless. 

"Ka-chooh!" It was oyer at last, and he held his breath, expecting his com- 
panions to recognize him and part company with him at once. But instead, they 
all turned suddenly toward the house and stood stock still, scarcely breathing, 
for minutes, it seemed to the President. Then, as all the house was still as before, 

"See here, fellows," said the ring-leader, drawing a deep breath and speaking 
in a stage whisper, ' 'a little more o' that '11 wake the old man. Whoeyer that sissy 
is that can't stand a little night air had better go to his mamma, but the rest of 
us don't want to go to ours, remember. Here we are now. Giye me a boost, some 
o' you, and I '11 go up first. Here, Freeny, you come up, too, and we '11 pass the 
fruit of this tree down to the others. Too many of us up here m.ight rouse the 
natives." 

48 



Up the tree went Seniors Taylor and Freeny, hitherto supposed by the Presi- 
dent to be the quietest of young men. The rest of the party, all of whom he had 
recognized by this time, stood waiting expectantly. A hoarse squawk was cut 
short, and a dark something handed down: then another, with the commeni : 

"Here 'sold 'Eph.' " 

"And here's Molly," came after the giggles with which old "Eph" was 
received. 

"And here's Betty." 

The President gasped. "Molly" was his wife's name and "Betty" his daugh- 
ter's. He had suspected that these boys sometimes spoke of him as "Eph," but 
' ' Molly " and " Betty ! " . 

' Say, this is enough," Taylor was saying. "If the puller-bones won't go 
round, the drumsticks will." 

Seniors Taylor and Freeny descended. Again there was the uneven tread of 
several pairs of feet, and the President, re-ensconced behind the grape arbor, again 
heard his back gate close softly. 

It was a custom of the President's to have occasionally a few of the students, 
especially of the upper classmen, to dine with him. When, on the day after the 
disappearance of his chickens, therefore, several of the students received invitations 
to dinner at the President's home, though they felt a little guilty, they saw no 
special significance in it, and did not hesitate to accept. 

"I guess old Prexy either hasn't missed his Plymouth Rocks or he doesn't 
know the sad particulars of their fate," said Taylor to Freeny. 

"No, of course he doesn't know who lifted' them," said Freeny, "but I '11 bet 
he 's missed 'em all right, for they say he sees different expressions on all their 
faces." 

"I hope he won't tell us about it, for the very word 'chicken' brings a bad 
taste to my mouth — that old patriarch you called 'Eph' must have lodged with 
Noah during the shower. And if we have chicken for dinner, I'm going to do 
something desperate. Ah, mv boy, I fear I '11 always be a cynic on the subject 
of fowls in general." 

It did seem a little strange to the guests when they had all arrived, that the 
President had invited all who had been on the raid the night before and no others. 
The genial smiles and pleasant talk of their host and hostess, however, soon dis- 
pelled all their suspicions, and when dinner was announced and they went into the 
dining-room, they had completely forgotten the episode of the night before- 

When all were seated, the President returned thanks in his usual impressive 
manner. Then, calmly turning his attention to a huge dish of chicken before him, 
he asked, seriously and courteously: 

"Mr. Taylor, may I give you a piece of old 'Eph,' or would you prefer a part 
oi 'Molly' or 'Betty'?" — Bessie Huddleston. 'oy.

MY LITTLE SWEETHEART OF THE GLEN. 



Did vou ever sit dreaming of days long gone by, 
\Aniile vou sat in vour room in the fire's dim glow? 

\Wl\, to-night I sit thus, and the embers all die 
As I wander back there in the days long ago. 

A tinv blaze flickers and then it dies down. 

Yet the embers all glow like the stars' feeble light, 

When the sun, having made his long journey around, 
Has wrapped all the world in the darkness of night. 

I sit here in silence and watch the bright embers ; 

'T is in them I see a cool shady glen. 
I wonder if now she this dear spot remembers, 

And the long happv davs that we spent in there then. 

The brooklet down there used to run, O so clear. 
O'er that moss-covered root of the big willow tree, 

And the ferns seemed to nod when my sweetheart was neai 
As we picked the wild rose on the edge of the lea. 

It seems I can see now that fern-covered brink. 
With those dear little prints of her feet in the sand. 

And her dear little form as she kneels dowm to drink. 
While I tenderly hold to her little white hand. 

One day she told me that my sweetheart she 'd be. 

And we vowed with our hands on our hearts not to tell; 

And I kissed her right there in the shade of that tree. 
Where no one could see, for 't was dark in the dell. 

Could I ever forget those dear clays of my childhood, 

The purest, the sweetest, the brightest of life. 
Or mv dear little sweetheart who played in the wildwood, 

Who now sits so near me? We kiss ; she 's my wife. 

—C.A.A.

Y. M. C. A. 



The Y. M. C. A. was organized soon after the founding of the College, and has 
a well and neatly furnished hall on the first floor of the main building. The mem- 
bership of the Y. M. C. A. is 137. It has now become a great factor in IMillsaps Col- 
lege, and does a work that no other organization can do. A majority of the stu- 
dents of the College belong to it, most of whom take actiye part in the work of the 
Association. The Association has systematic work outlined, which it undertakes 
to accomplish each year. 

The meetings are held on Friday and Sunday nights. The seryices are 
usually conducted by some one of the students. This year Dr. Murrah has 
preached on Sunday nights. 

For seyeral years after the organization the Association sent two members 
each year to the Southern Students' Conference at Ashyille, North Carolina, but 
it now sends its men to the vSouth western Conference, which is held at Ruston, 
Louisiana, during the Christmas holidays. This year the Association sent nine 
men. These men are E. D. Lewis, S. U. Zung, J. L. Neill, J. A. McKee, E. C. 
McGilyray, O. Backstrom, C. H. Kirkland, C. L. Neill, and C. R. Nolen. This 
Conference greatly aids the men who attend in their work in the Association, as 
they there get the yery best training in the Bible study work. 

Each year the Association has a hand-book published, and has a committee 
meet the trains at the opening of school and distribute these books, which give 
new students information concerning the College. On Friday night after the 
opening of the school the Association holds a reception for the old and new stu- 
dents, and they there get acquainted with each other. 

The Bible Study Department is an important feature of the Association. 
Ninety-two men were enrolled in different classes this year. This work was greatly 
benefited this year by a Bible institute, held the first of the session by Mr. \V. D. 
Weatherford, trayelling secretary for the College Association of the Southern 
States, and Mr. B. S. Huggins, tri-State vSecretary. 

The Missionary Department enrolled ninety men in mission study this year. 
The classes first took up for study "Effective Workers in Needy Fields." The 
other two books studied were "Japan and Its Regeneration," and "Princely Men 
in the Heavenly Kingdom." 'Sir. W. B. Pettus, of Columbia University, delivered 
an address to the student-body in January, which greatly aided the cause of mis- 
sions in the College. A number of the men are enlisted in systematic giving to 
the cause of missions and the proceeds given to the support of a native student in 
the Anglo-Chinese College.

Bound together by love's golden cord, ■.--,

Of an answering love and devotion

THE HISTORY OF ATHLETICS AT MILLSAPS. 



The first niovement toward awakening interest in athletics at Millsaps College 
was made during the session 1894-95. An organization i^known as the Millsaps 
Athletic Association) was perfected among the student-bodv, with W. L. Weber, 
Professor of English, as its President. The Association immediately proceeded 
to procure fimds with which to build a college gymnasium, with the result that 
during the following year a fully equipped "gym" was completed and placed in 
charge of Mr. J. T. Lewis as special director. A perfect wave of athletic enthusiasm 
followed these improyements. 

At the beginning of the session of '96 the Association elected a new President, 
J. P. Hanner, Professor of Modern Languages, who at once set on foot plans for a 
Field Day to take place in the following April. The students supported him heart- 
ily in this undertaking, and trained faithfully during the winter for the sports, 
which consisted mainly of races, putting the shot, jumping, yaulting, an exhibition 
in the gymnasium, and a game of base ball, liberal prizes being given to the winners 
of the different contests. There being no regular college athletic field, the large 
field just south of the campus was used. A large audience of both town and col- 
lege people witnessed the sports, which were so successfully carried out that the 
visitors as well as the students looked forward with eagerness to the next Field Day. 

About this time G. C. Swearingen, Professor of Ancient Languages, organized 
the Millsaps Tennis Association as an auxiliary to the main Association. Two ex- 
cellent tennis courts were made, and during the following year the students had 
the pleasure of seeing the Association defeat a Jackson team in doubles. Professor 
Hanner was succeeded bv B. E. Young, both as Professor of Modern Languages 
and as President of the Athletic Association. Professor Young directed the atten- 
tion of the AssEociation to foot ball, and a foot ball team was organized, which 
plaved a few games with an eleven from Jackson. Activity in base ball circles 
took the form of a series of interesting games with the Deaf and Dumb Institute 
in which Millsaps proved the victor. 

The Athletic Association now took steps toward arranging for inter-collegiate 
games of foot ball; a coach was engaged, a "varsity" and a "scrub" team organ- 
ized, and everything looked promising for a successful season. The first game was 
with Tulane, at New Orleans, and was lost bv a score of 30 to o. On the following 
day, with a bruised and battered team, Millsaps lined up against the Louisiana 
State LTniversity, at Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and were unable to prevent them 
from rolling up a score of 70 to o. Those who made the trip were: Professor 
Young, President of the Athletic Association; Sively, manager; Abbey, Coach; 

89 



Fielder A. Fridge, H. Fridge, Hughes, Howell, McCleod, Hall, vShields, Smith, 
Simpson, Thompson, and Wood. 

The temperature of foot ball enthusiasm dropped a few degrees, but a victory 
of 30 to o over the team from Greenville, Mississippi, served to restore the spirits 
of the students to their normal condition and inspire them to renewed efforts to 
win the Thanksgiving game with L. .S. U. The day at last arrived. The mo- 
mentous hour came, and the two teams lined up against each other on the field 
while a multitude looked on with eager eyes. Millsaps made the first touch-down 
and successfully kicked the goal; L. S. U. made a touch-down, but failed to kick 
the goal. From that time on the ball swaved back and forth — now in the posses- 
sion of one side and now held by the other; but neither team could again score. 
Thus ended the greatest game ever played bv Millsaps, the score being 6 to 5. The 
spectators were almost wild with delight, and the college boys were imcontrollable. 
Foot ball was the subject of conversation for manv weeks — what had been done 
and what would be done. 

But athletics at Millsaps were overstepping the proper bounds in the estima- 
tion of the two Conferences, and at their next sessions resolutions were passed for 
bidding the College to indulge in inter-collegiate games of any kind. This move 
for a time practically paralyzed all athletic spirit. The new President of the Asso- 
ciation, Mr. D. L. Bingham, used every effort to revive interest among the students, 
but the shock had been too great, and his efforts were of no avail. The following 
session is known as the dull and lifeless era in our athletic historv. Professor 
Walmslev, of the Department of Historv, succeeded, in 1903, in reorganizing the 
Association, and during the past two sessions the situation has been greatly re- 
lieved by his earnest endeavors and helpful management. 

The present session has seen interest in athletics greatlv on the increase. Dur- 
ing the early fall the ball team played a series of games with the Jackson team, and 
on Thanksgiving Day we defeated them in foot ball bv the score of 10 to o, the 
features of the dav being two forty-yard runs bv McGilvray. This game not onh^ 
aroused new enthusiasm among the students, but filled an aching void in the treas- 
ury of the Association. 

The gymnasium classes, which were begun under the direction of Athletic 
Director F". P. Spencer, have been continued under the leadership of Professor A. 
A. Kern, and have been largely attended. 

Attempts have been made to play basket ball in a regular manner, and two 
teams have been formed, the Lacoomas and the Tuscoos, with the hope that the 
organization will prove a permanent one. 

The tennis courts have not been sufhcient to the demand upon them. A 
healthy rivalry has existed between the various local ball teams, and all omens 
point to a brighter dav in Millsaps athletics.

VERSE. 



When 't is early in the morning, 

(Say half past five or six), 
And the golden day is dawning, 

And 't is cold "to beat six bits" ; 
When the birds outside are singing. 

And the farmer goes to reap; 
I love to pull the cov r up, 

And quietly drop asleep. — A. 



Backward, turn backward, O time in your flight. 
Make me a vSoph again, jus-t for one night. 
Let me feel wise again, just for this once, 
Tho' forever hereafter I 'm counted dunce. 



Dis worl' hit am a cur'us place, 

Hit seem all upsid' down, 
I 've seen cake walk and money talk; 

Trees' bark and root in de groun'. 
De rabbit is bread in de briah patch, 

I 've hern dat said a good 'eal, 
And I 've actually seen a wagin spring 

And corn stalk over mv fiel'. — A.
