TOO have lived," the old 
grad says; "and in my day 
life abounded with things 
that were beautiful and joyous 
and clever." If, then, in that 
new and strange future that is 
before us, we of the old guard 
can find in these pages some- 
thing that will bring back for a 
moment the light of youth to 
the eye almost grown dim, 
something that will assure us 
that "we too have lived," the 
aim of those who now present 
this volume will have been 
realized.

Alma Mater 



Alma Mater, dear old Milhaps, 

Loyal sons are we; 
Our fond hearts are thine alone 

And evermore shall be. 
Proud art tlwu in classic beauty 

Of thy noble past. 
With thy ivatclnvord. Honor, Duty, 

Thy high fame shall last. 

Ev'ry student, man and maiden, 

Sivell the glad refrain. 
Till the breezes, music laden. 

Waft it back again. 
Proud art thou in classic beauty 

Of thy noble past. 
With thy watchword. Honor, Duty, 

Thy high fame shall last.

ZiMOSKI 



II.ME 



V.w Hook; 



Coach 



aches 



Coach "Zinimv," scrxinti his hist \car a; a PurjiK' ni.'iitor, continued to produce 
lines that c\rn the hcst that the mighty ALnbaiiiians hurled a,<:ainst it could not penetrate 
ior many apjireciable gains. Coach Zimoski has turned out some mighty good players 
since he took over the reins of the athletic squads here. He came here as a stranger, 
and was the first full-time coach that the college boasted. \Vhere\er he is. we het 
that he has a good line and that he will give Howard a good fight, if not beat them. 

"(joat" Hale, he of the wide-spread football and baseball ability, has worked him- 
self into the hearts of all students and players. His coming brought a spirit of self- 
confidence that was noticeably lacking, to the phuers. Next year he wdl be head foot- 
ball coach, ;ind baseball coach. 

Coach \'an Hook had the freshmen this year, and wliat a freshman bunch he 
did have! Look at the records. He got pronioteil though, and next year he will be 
there helping the \arsity. Ask a freshman who is the most liked instructor on the 
campus ;uul he will readily tell you that Van is.

Gaines Crawford 



Sexton McManus 



All-State 



Captain Crawford ended his three years of starring on the Purple eleven in a burst 
of glory. Those three years he has been picked as first choice on All-State teams. It 
is the concensus of opinion that he is one of the very best triple threat men to e\er 
cavort on a state gridiron. Always fighting and trying to win, Crawfortl made scin- 
tillating plays in every game and against the best teams that tlie Purple fought. 
"Windy" will sure be missed next year. 

McManus, the "big little man" of the Major squad, was pronounced by football 
critics of four states as the best center, regardless of size, seen in action this year in 
their respective states. "IVIac" is captain-elect of next year, winner of the Brannon 
Trophy for general football ability, and was placed first on all All-State teams. 
Weighing only one hundred and fifty pounds, MclManus was one of the light- 
est men on the team and was the lightweight of the line. Lack of weight could not 
overcome a strong heart, a quick brain and speed, so Alac was one of the really good 
football players on the squad. 




Wright 



Moody 



Welsh 



Bilbo 



"(n)OFY" Wright, after a late start on account of injuries, rapidly rounded into 
good form and was one of the most consistent ground gainers on the squail. \\'atch 
him go in the fall. 

S. R. Moody, diminutise, but heady and fast quarter, made many sparkling jilays. 
He fought all the time and will be missed next year. 

"Kid" Welsh, the boy from Bogalusa, is counteil on by the coaches as being one 
of the mainsprings of next fall's team. Heavy and fast, Welsh is a football player. 

"(lov" Rii.iu). In his second year of varsity experience, "Gov" started most of 
the games and in each one acquitted himself well. ]VIany a man was snared by Bilbo 
when a touchdown seemed certain. 





Johnson 



Campbrli. 



Peevey 



"Pat" Rouse was the line backer par excellence. He plugged up holes, he stopped 
charging backs, he played his position with adeptness. Pat will be here next year. 

Jesse Johnson earned the monicker "Seven "Sards'" Johnson. Give him the ball ; 
then move the line seven yards. Jesse's first year on the varsity, and he will be back 
next year. 

"Ted" Campbell has the requisites of a consistent performer, and in all probability 
will have an opportunity to display them this fall. 

"Mr." Peevey leaned this way and that way and down came two men. In his 
last year for the Purple, Peevey lent valuable assistance to holding opposing teams to 
minimum downs. 





Baxter 



l^ROOKS 



McLaurin 



BOSWELL 



"Dick" Baxter, playing his third year on the varsity, displayed all the fight, 
speed and ability that marked him as a fresh star of '24. 

"Puny" Brooks, big and brawny, played this season handicapped by injuries. He 
stayed in the game though. 

(JiLMER McLaurin did not play frosh football, but he came out this year and 
made the varsity. "Mac" starred in several encounters and promises to be a mainstay 
of the line next year. 

"Potts" Boswell's claim to fame was gained when the Purple played Miami. 
The Florida sports editors tacked this to him, so we will use it too — "that lumbering 
tackle." 








Bennett 



Bl.OUNT 



Drane 



Beai.i.e 



"LoN Chaxey" Bexxett, ill his first varsity year, played stellar ball and is 
counted a bright prospect for next fall's team. 

"Rube" Blouxt has played four years of ball for the purple and it will not be 
easy to forget Rube's cutting in and grabbing a pass from Crawford. Rube was right 
there. 

"Red" Draxe had a hard job being understudy for McManus. AIcManus will 
graduate some day and then "Red" will get to play. 

John Bealle, a sophomore, gave the two regular ends a run for their money. He 
played a consistent game and starred on breaking up punts. 









HOI.COMB 



Rape 



Bounds 



KURTS 



RoHERT HoLCOMH, plaviiig his second year on tlie \arsity, was a linesman of 
proven ability. Cireat things are expected of him. 

"Turhy" Rape, after playing for two years on the varsity, slowed up a bit and 
he fought against youth and speed for his place in the line. His play at Miami was 
one of the high points of the game. 

George Bounds was always there scrimmaging, fighting, and is a strong can- 
didate for a berth next fall. 

C7EORGE Kl'RTS punted his team out of danger many times, but was handicappi'd 
by injuries received early in the season.

Varsity Foottall 



The Major griddcrs of '27 were a fighting group of players whT 
played a good brand of football, though thi' record is not of the impres- 
sive variety. Crawford and McManiis furnished the thorns for the 
opposition. Crawford, always a threat, got away in almost every game 
for a brilliant end run, while AIcMar.us was showing about three oppos- 
ing linesmen how to play their positions. The Purple, for the first time, 
played a post season game. Tliey journeyed to Miami and jilayed the 
University there on the golden sands. Beat them, too.

Varsity Basketball 



Millsaps experienced a mediocre basketball season in 1928. 
Failure of tbe team to show consistent winning form was 
attributed to the lack of goal shooting ability'. Windy 
Crawford was a bright light, with Goober Carruth star- 
ring in every game.

Varsity Baseball 

Baseball at IMillsaps with "Cjoat" Hale coaching it, 
promises to wage a bitter fight to regain some of its lost 
prestige. This year there is a noticeable lack of pitching 
talent, but tlie FreshniLMi ha\e some to spare and tlie 
experience of tliis year promises to hclii in the buihiing 
of a team for next year.

FresKinan Basketball 

A well-rounded court delegation was developed by Coach Van Hook this year. The outfit 
showed good form and teamwork in all of the contests played, and there were quite a number of 
them. Several excellent prospects were polished for future varsity service. A number of local 
prep combinations were trimmed during the season, and but seldom did the Minors taste defeat; 
then it was never by any overwhelming score. Austin Brantley was the brightest individual 
star of the lot, closely followed by Marion Hale. The high light of the season was the 115 to 
19 victory over the Canton Y. M. C. A.

Girls Basketball 

One of Alillsap's most colorful and successful athletic 
organizations is the Co-ed basketball team. Always fight- 
ing to win, always ready to fight, and most of the time 
winning, the Co-eds lost the State Championship in a 
heart-breaking game to Delta State, (^f tlie regulars, 
Newell, Lingle and Setzler will not return next year. 
Lingle and Setzler were two of the best forwards seen 
on th? local court. Their shooting and their team work 
was little short of marvelous. Strait (not in panel), did 
good work at guard.

Minor Football 

The Minor football machine was the most powerful in the history 
of the institution. Playing through an unusually hard schedule, the 
frosh came out on the long end of the score every time but once. Clarke 
College was tlic team that turned the trick and they did it by the margin 
of one touchdown. The team, fast and hea\ y, was with such an array 
of talent that it would be hard to pick a really indi\idual star, rather 
we would say the team was the star. Jake Miller with dazzling end 
runs, bullet-like or loop passes, was, if anyone was, the best indi\idual 
performer of the bimch. The team, of course, pointed to Mississippi 
College's Papooses. The baby Chocs were completely snowed under, 
32 to O, by an avalanche of line bucks, passes and perfect team woik.

Millsaps Golf Club 



Coif is tlu' one sjiort tliat has taken the campus hy 
storm. Ahnost an\' hour of the h'iihted ones, some poor 
nut ean be seen knocking tlie lieuce out of the h'ttU' \vhite 
pellet; then with a happy smile lighting his countenance, 
plod over the hill after the elusive pill. The club was 
organized this year with R. E. Byrd as president and 
Hoyle Byrd as secretary. A tournament with a repre- 
sentative entry from the student body was played, and 
judging from its success and the enthusiasm displayed 
tliere, it promises to be an annual featvn'e of the Golf 
Club.

Tenms 

Only one match has been played by the Major 
racquetccrs this season. In that match at Southwestern 
Lomsiana Institute, the team ot Fowler and ]]oswell won 
the doubles sets but lost both singles contests after a hard 
iiijht. In the Mississippi Intercollegiate tournament to be 
played on the ^lillsaps College courts, Boswell and Cap- 
tain Fowler, with Sessions and Ford as capable reser\es, 
shnuld go far towards winning the co\etetl championship. 
Th? ter.m is made up of three juniors and one sophomore, 
Roswell, who will all be back next year to fight, Hght hard, 
to win.

The Choctaws Win 

In the feature contest of the year, Millsaps' utter inability to break up anybody's 
forward passing attack proved to be the margin of \ictory for the Clioctaws from 
Mississippi College. The Majors fought hard but Hitt threw passes in, over, and 
around our men to the mournful tune of two touchdowns. The Majors were within 
striking distance of the Choctaws' goal line, but the needed punch was not there. 
It was by Crawford's consistently good punting that the Braves' score was held down. 
It was our game in the fiist and third quarters, tlien the Chocs took tilings into their 
hands in tlie second and fourth rounds. Wait until next year! That is not a threat, 
it is a jirayer.

The Organization 

The Philomathean Literary Society of Millsaps College was organized January i6, 1928. 
At this time only a temporary organization was effected, the only two officers elected being 
Peggy O'Neal, temporary chairman, and Bessie George Donald, temporary secretary. It was 
not until February 14, 1928, that a permanent organization was set up and the officers named 
above were elected to serve for the remainder of the current session. The constitution and 
by-laws of the society were also permanently adopted at this meeting. The regular meeting 
time was set as Tuesday afternoon at four o'clock. The general plan of the programs is the 
same at those of the Galloway and Lamar Societies, although some variations have been made 
from time to time. The major aim is to train the women students of Millsaps for excellence 
in debating and public speaking. 

During the latter part of the last term the Philomatheans plan to participate in the Inter- 
Society Debates of the college, debating both the Lamars and the Galloways. They have 
also arranged for an intercollegiate debate with Belhaven College and have arrangements 
under way with several other colleges. Outstanding during this session have been: Dorothy 
Moore, Linnie Lingle, Nell Finch, Ruth Gainey, Hattie Ray Lewis and Marie Flink.

Resolved 

We will love in a new way 

In this new year, 

With quiet, sacred tenderness, 

Which needs no vulgar, cheap caress, 

Devoid of kisses .... none the less 

Sincere. 

We will love in a new way 

In this new year. 

But resolutions amorous, 

Like kisses platitudinous, 

Should all be celebrated . . . thus . . 

Aly dear.

G. E. Gkkkxway 

I iliJ not think that I could strike a spark 
To kindle you from your serene restraint. 
With hopeless hands 1 sought you in the dark, 
Resigned to your caprice without complaint. 
But luito nie you yielded, you complieil 
With fire whicli to all others was denied. 



Dear lighter, can all this be really true 
That I can get a decent light from \()u?

PROGRESS FOLLOWS POWER 

That the people of America enjoy greater prosperity, more com- 
forts and larger earning capacity is due largely to the great use of 
electric power machinery. 

Electricity today is doing the work of 170,000.000 men in the 
United States. The availability of power from interconnected 
systems has resulted in tremendous development, particularly in 
some of the Southern States. 

The Mississippi Power H Light Company's transmission lines 
are interconnected with some of the largest electric generating sta- 
tions in the world, and electric power in abundance is available in 
over 117 different communities in our State.
