MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



JOHN CODBOLD, BUSINESS MANAGER 




H5W, 



With the inauguration of President M. L. Smith, a new 
chapter was begun in the history of Millsaps College. 
As we turn the first page of the new chapter, it is natural 
that we also look back at the yellowed but still splendid 
pages of the first chapter, begun almost fifty years ago, 
in the days when buggies and bicycles-built-for-two sped 
up muddy State Street to bring a handful of students to 
the new school. Styles and customs have changed, but 
the ideals and high standards of those first years are still 
respected. To pay tribute to those teachers and students 
who made those early days memorable, and to symbolize 
the linking of the traditions of the past and the aspirations 
of the future in the building of a Greater Millsaps, we 
have chosen as the theme for the 1939 Bobashela the date 
of founding of Millsaps College-- 1892.

BEBICATIO 



In paying tribute to the past, its traditions, 
ideals, and its people, we are reminded of one who 
remembers well the "Gay Nineties" and who with 
priceless bits of philosophy and delightful humor 
has recalled those days for us and made them live 
again as he tells his anecdotes in the classroom. 
Not only has he brought numbers of honors to 
Millsaps College through personal achievement 
and through innumerable services to the school, 
but he has made for himself a permanent place in 
the hearts of the students he has taught. And so 
it is to Professor J. Reese Lin, our "guide, philoso- 
pher and friend" to whom we respectfully dedi- 
cate this volume. 







MELVIN AT MILLSAPS 



Once upon a time there was a high school senior who for purposes of publication 
we shall designate as Melvin Wood. 

And Melvin had always determined that when the time came he would certainly 
go to Millsaps because his father had gone to Millsaps and his brother had 
gone to Millsaps and the times that they had had could only be weakly 
described as good; 

They were more than good; they were swell; 

And Melvin had determined that the same were in store for little Mel. 

So he put away his thoughts of high school and pondered about the fun he was 
going to have and came out to Millsaps and looked at all the beauties of the 
campus — of one sort and another — that surround us 

And then he saw Foundus. 

Now Founders Hall had been seen by Melvin before when he and his father and 
his brother came to Jackson for the inauguration of one of Millsaps" presi- 
dents, 

But not as a potential residents. 

No, he had merely viewed it as a building on the campus that maybe had been 
in style once. 

Now, however, he viewed it as building where his sleeping and laughing and 
talking and telephoning would take place for the next number of monce. 

Momentarily Melvin was cast into gloom, 

And then he reflected that after all what was a room 

And after all what fun was a dormitory that was as well furnished as a house; 

Was he man or mouse. 

And Melvin said, "Father, I have thought it all over, and I have concluded that 
if Founders is part of Millsaps, I love Founders because I subscribe to the 
school of My Country right or wrong, but if wrong, still my country." 

And his tolerant father thought it all over too and decided this was not 
effrontery 

So he said, "Very well, Melvin, we'll go talk it over with U. Z." 

Which they did, with the result of loss of money to Mr. Wood, and loss of 
prestige to Freshman Wood, because he stopped being a senior automatically. 

Since there are a number of pictures for you to look at and see some of the 
things Melvin saw, we will take leave of our Freshman feeling few of the 
sensations experienced by Ferdinand when he contemplated flowers. 

For by this time Melvin is established in Founders, feeling anything but peace- 
ful when he tries to solve the eternal and sphinx-like problem of the 
Founder's showers. 




DR. M. L. SMITH 



€Ae PRESIDENT 



In the short time that Dr. Smith has been President of Millsaps 
College, every member of the student body has been influenced by the friend- 
liness and personal interest shown them by the President. An excellent 
scholar and a man of foresight and unlimited industry, Dr. Smith, by his 
work this year, has already indicated that his career as President will be a 
glorious chapter in the history in the building of The Greater Millsaps. 




DR. D. M. KEY 

There are a number of forces 
that have made Millsaps an out- 
standing college, esteemed for 
its high standards and enviable 
record of achievement, but 
among the strongest forces has 
been the loyalty and vision of 
Dr. D. M. Key. For the years 
of faithful service to this "small 
liberal arts college" — years dur- 
ing which the light in his office 
has burned late many a night as 
he worked to help Millsaps keep 
the honorable position it occu- 
pies in the educational world, 
we hereby express again the 
appreciation of the student 
body. 




MRS. MARY B. STONE 

Through the difficulties of 
freshman year, to the day of 
graduation, Millsaps girls have 
always the assurance of a wise 
and sympathetic counsellor as 
well as teacher in Mrs. Mary B, 
Stone. Through her interest in 
women student activities, Mrs. 
Stone has been a strong influ- 
ence in forming well rounded 
personalities as well as well 
trained minds in the women 
graduates.

1939 was a gala year for Millsaps--first, the inauguration of 
the new president, Dr. Smith, and then, for the first time, the cele- 
bration of Founders Day. In the pictures below: 

Dr. Robert Lester of New York City speaks at the inauguration 
of Dr. Smith; Hugh Clegg, former student of Millsaps, visits the 
campus; Dr. Smith takes the oath of office; the Glee Club sings at

CLASSY, WHAT? 



Well, where did we leave Melvin? Oh, yes, he went to Millsaps and then he 

went to classes and then he went crazy 
Because he saw right off that if you worked real had on Freshman Lit and 

wrote your weekly impressions you couldn't get up all your trig too and then 

Van Hook thought you were lazy. 
So then if you tried to get up English Monday and then on Wednesday get up 

trig, (which is planned economy, the Russians inform us) 
The English assignment on Monday would be trivial and on Wednesday it would 

be enormous. 
Anyway, he was not alone in these troubles involving education 
As he realized after a little meditation. 

So Melvin said, ''I will bestir myself and meet my class-mates — 
"My a-making mates and my fail-mates and my pass-mates — 
"Eds, and coeds, for misery loves company, 
"And I might as well know a bunch of people to whom I can be grumpy if I 

care to grumpany." 
So Melvin bestirred himself. He went to the grill and he never took a girl, he 

just stood there, smiled aloofly and ate candy. 
Which led coeds to reflect that at dances he would be handy. 
In the future they were nice to Melvin, and that made him happy, which all 

Millsaps students should be, according to our president, M. L. S. 
Whis is a noble sentiment, we must confess. 
Melvin learned that there is a vicious circle which is said to be the last word in 

educational (vicious) circles. 
Which works this way: you make all B's because you go to class regularly and 

so you are on the Dean's list and not required to go to class and this is a 

great honor. So, lest no one realize that you have this great honor you cut 

a few classes and then you cut a few more and then you take the exam and 

you don't have the B average and then you go to class next semester and get 

back your B average and so it goes until you feel that life is just a series of 

ups and downs and wails and gurgles. 
He was handy in bull sessions too because he read Readers Digest and Time 

and Life 
And had an excellent memory which could always produce a gorier murder con- 
cerning knives whenever someone in the state was murdered with a knife. 
He developed the nonchalance of a dean's-list-student-cutting-for-the-thir- 

teenth-time which he employed in walking out of class fifteen minutes early 

or coming in fifteen minutes tardy, 
And he was not particular pious, but on the other hand, he wasn't nardy. 
So he was popular among the students whose pictures are represented on the 

following pages, with gay ninety borders hemmin' in. 
Probably because there is no one of them who did not have at least one of the 

attributes attributed to Melvin, except that according to the Millsaps college 

bulletin, March 1939, 165 of the attributes may be considered as applying 

to the feminine.

OUT TO THE BALL GAME 

Hurrah for the professors, hurrah for U. Z too, 

And if you are a Choctaw, — then you know the rest of the chant we chant when 

we are enchanted by a half-back or quarter-back breaking through. 
But most especially, on this occasion, hurrah for U. Z., surnamed Hathorn, 
Upon whom we sometimes vent our wrath and teases when we want a good 

sport to tease or vent or wrathorn. 
U. Z., however, is worthy of merit. 

Because his is one of the major sponsors of the major school sperit. 
I make this remark because you all know that he is sorta funny 
About money. 
But we really shouldn't criticize when we stop to think about it because among 

other monies that he takes is $15 for student activity. 
Which solves a number of problems throughout the year, the main one being 

that we need never miss a campus ball-game, even if the bread-line is in 

dangerous proclivity. 
For out of the $15 comes our tickets to all of the football games and basketball 

and just ball games in general, 
And we need never stop to reflect that we are traitors to the purple and white 

just because we spent our last fifty cents for animal vegetable or mineral. 
No stiff backbone do we need, no budget, no question of endurance 
At least, where campus ball-games are concerned, because U. Z., the nice man, 

has taken over and gives us the Student Activity Fee as insurance. 
Therefore we go to the football games and basketball games et al 
And U. Z. is our pal. 
Because it is through him that we have seen in action and color the people and 

passes that live again in the following pages in black and white; 
It is through him that we are able to share the thrills of the various games 

whether they be played in the afternoon or at night. 
It is he that sees that uniforms are brought and lights are lighted and balls are 

put up safely after the game and likewise visiting teams 
So it seems 

That we are not amiss in proclaiming this to be 
A hurrah for U. Z.

€fc COACH E 



MAJOR LEADERS FOR EIGHT 
YEARS 

TRANNY LEE GADDY 
Head Football Coach 

B. O. VAN HOOK 
Director of Athletics 



This year's squad ended the march of two generations of Major gridsters 
through the hands of Head Coach T. L. Gaddy. From his first year, when 
he produced a championship team. Coach Gaddy showed that he could inspire 
Millsaps' small and inexperienced teams to play football far above their heads. 

Three lean years in a row with lack of material started the Majors out on 
a hard road in 1938. A head injury to Robert Cox, co-captain of the Militants, 
at the first of the season deprived Coach Gaddy of his best running back. 

In spite of the loss through injuries of two more varsity backs, Mike 
McElhaney and Bert Sumrall, the Majors kept digging in all season. Against 
eleven strong opponents the Militants gained but one victory, yet managed to 
hold their enemies to close scores. 

Coach Gaddy leaves Millsaps at the end of his eighth year, with wishes of 
the best of luck from the students who have and will continue to admire him 
as a leader of men.

S an^ SQUAD 



FOR YEARS TO COME 

Upon the resignation of his friend and former 
coach, T. L. Gaddy, Henry L. ''Hook" Stone agreed 
to lead the Militant march on the gridiron, begin- 
ning with spring practice in 1939. 

Coach Stone comes to Millsaps with a record of 
eight state championships for his ten years as coach 
of the Copiah-Lincoln Wolfpack. 

With the growth of "Greater Millsaps", bringing 
with it a better choice of gridiron material, the Pur- 
ple wheel of fortune is due to swing around again 
to the point where Coach Gaddy first placed cham- 
pion Majors on the field.

BASKETBALL 



Rating among the first five in the Dixie Conference all season, the Major 
courtmen were constant threats for the Dixie Conference Tourney title. Though 
they dropped out of the Dixie Conference Tourney in the semi-finals, the 
Majors boasted the two highest scorers in the loop. They were Keyes Currie, 
conference leader, and Cannon "Shotgun" Herron, second gun in the Dixie. 
Against the powerful Clinton Choctaws Coach Van Hook's men had heart- 
breaking luck. Both of the first games with the Tribesmen slipped through 
the Majors' fingers by margins of one point each. Twice in the second con- 
test the game rested in the hands of Captain Keyes Currie, but the iron ring 
twice turned a cold shoulder to the Majors' efforts to sink the deciding free shot. 
Besides Currie's brilliant, unorthodox shots the long tosses of Herron and 
John Thompson were not less important in keeping the Militants in the front 
ranks of the Dixie Conference.

BASEBALL 



Improved fielding this year behind steady hurlers started the 
Major diamondmen on a successful season. Only a lack of heavy 
hitters kept the Militants from being one of the leading Southern 
nines. Herbert Selman with his slow rolling ball led the Majors 
in most of their victories. Other Top moundmen were Charlie Ward, 
Wallace Litton, Brandon Bell, "Doc" Hamilton, George Todd and 
Kelton Lowry. Stars of the infield were Edward Matulich, fresh- 
man, and Milan Richardson, sophomore. William Green and Eugene 
Price turned in air-tight performances in the outfield. Samuels, 
Ballard, Lester Cooper, and Edward Fleming in the infield; and 
Eual Cooper and Charles Hammack in the outfield started most of 
the time for the Majors. Red Wilson and Virgil Anders took time 
about behind the plate.

TENNIS 




Epperson, Thorne, Wright, Hudson. 

Of the six members of the Major net squad four were freshmen, 
one of whom. Earl Epperson, played No. 1 racket. Because of the 
green material the Militants were on the little end of the score for 
most of their matches. As the team consistently lost. Epperson 
steadily won his contests. His only defeat of the season was at the 
hands of the present national parks champion, Lou Faquin. Charles 
Wright and O. D. Bonner will be lost to the team next year but the 
freshmen under the leadership of Epperson should develop into a 
champion foursome.

TRACK 



With his squad almost double that of last year Coach Van Hook 
found plenty of material to work with this year though not many 
experienced trackmen. Because of a late start the Majors didn't 
begin breaking the tape until late in the season. From the first, 
however, Gordon Worthington, Bert Melton, and Joe Miles began 
taking top honors in their events. In a triangle meet with Missis- 
sippi College and Southwestern the Major cindermen captured more 
first places than their opponents but failed to take the crown. Loss 
of Herron in the distance events and Beard in the dashes gave Coach 
Van Hook the task of developing new sprinters who will probably 
step out ahead next season. 



61 



FRESHMAN FOOTBALL 



A harbinger of what is come under the "Greater Millsaps" 
athletic program was the performance of the Minors on the gridiron. 
After winning the majority of their games against powerful junior 
college elevens, the Minors proceeded to give the Mississippi College 
Papooses one of their first drubbings in years. It is hoped that 
this was but a taste of the bitter dose that is to be dealt out next 
year by the varsity to the ancient rivals. Edward Matulich, freshman 
half-back danced through the opposition in a way that made Coach 
Gaddy declare that it had been many years since Millsaps had pos- 
sessed such a talented ball carrier. A strong line, which even out- 
weighed the varsity, made it possible for Matulich to cash in on his 
running ability.

WOMEN'S ATHLETICS 

In recent years there has been an inci^easing interest at 
Millsaps in women's athletics. The program this year has in- 
cluded intra-murals in which non-fraternity. Barbarian, and 
sorority girls participated. The need for physical education in 
colleges has been widely recognized and it is hoped that this 
department, which has done such excellent work, will be rapidly 
enlarged.

Under the capable leadership of Fielding "Bo" 
Holloman, the official welcomers and general en- 
thusiasm-rousers of the college have led parades up 
Capitol Street, and the cheering at the ball games 
in grand style. ''Bo" and Jean will be missed next 
year, but "Teeny" and Kimble will be with us again 
to cheer the Purple and White to victory.

In being selected as Master Major and Miss Millsaps, 
T. M. Hardy and Lillian Douglas Swayze have won the highest 
honor that can be bestowed by the student body. Standing high 
in scholarship, prominent in student activities, and possessing

THE GREEKS HAD A WORD FOR MELVIN 

And the word, dear friends, was rushee, 

Which, being translated, means the person a freshman is for a few precious 

days when upper-class boys and girls are super-swell to under-class boys 

and girls and often in the latter case, mushee. 
Melvin, being a nice kid, and knowing how to take girls for granted and respect 

senior men 
Got along fine during those days (except on the occasion when he politely 

smoked black cigars to the number of ten). 
Of course he was interested when informed that of one of the groups Columbus 

was the patron saint. 
And somewhat confused when a rival group informed him that he would 

probably hear that Columbus is an alumnus of the first group but to bear 

in mind that he aint. 
Then the first group when questioned by Melvin brought out documents to 

prove it. 
And he made up his mind to pledge and when his mind was all settled the other 

bunch made up its collective mind to move it. 
So they took Melvin into a small back room and introduced him to a couple 

of other fellows 
And they talked and talked and talked, saying that after all who was Colum- 
bus- -America had been discovered by the Vikings already, and that the 

Columbuses of the world were helpless unless diamonds were sold by the 

Isabellows. 
They said now you take Arnold McFee, that was a man for you. 
He founded our noble fraternity and if you will wear this little piece of plaid 

around your arm tomorrow, symbolizing that you are pledged to the clan 

of McFee, we will simply adore you. 
Then at last they let him go home and he sneaked in and didn't turn on the 

lights because he was afraid that he would wake up the kid brother of a 

chapter president who had already told everybody that he was going to 

carry on in the family tradition and make his mark. 
So rather than hear any more Melvin went to bed in the dark 
And of all the luck he got in the wrong bed 
And woke up the kid brother of the chapter president, so he didn't get to go to 

sleep, because along about dawn he had to go Alpha Beta Gamma instead.

THE KEY TO SUCCESS 

Melvin had not been at Millsaps long before he found that there were two series of 

students; 
The good ones, and the not-so-gudents. 

And he discovered further that the good ones generally made not only good grades. 
But likewise most of the honoraries, and whenever there were parades, they led the 

parades. 
And he sat and reasoned thus: "How can it be 
"That all of these people who make good grades meet lab all afternoons and then on 

Monday nights they go alternately to French and IRC 
"And on Tuesday nights they go to glee club and help with the P&W and on Wednesday 

night to pre-med club and on Thursday nights the boys go to frat meetings and the 

girls have a town-boy date 
"And on Friday night the preachers meet, and so it goes, and yet they generally look 

pretty good and as if they hadn't sat up particularly late. 
"It might not be so bad if they only had to go to the meetings because maybe they could 

sit on the back rows and read a book, 
"But they can't, because look .... 

"The campus big-shots get elected to offices in these things 
"And they have to get up programs and ask people to speak and decide what to eat at 

banquets 
"And if its a sorority, see a man to mow the house yard and see another man when the 

first manquits. 
"And therefore I don't see how under the sun 
"They get it all done." 
"I will tell you," responded an upperclassman who was an ODK, and this is what he 

respondit: 
"The more you belong to the less you have to do. and the way it works is this, as I 

have found it: 
"Let us say that you are expected to be on the IRC program, help make up the P&W. 

ask a doctor to speak at pre-med club, report on the Christmas party plans for 

Alpha Beta Gamma, and represent Millsaps at a Rotary meeting and you decide you 

have therefore too much to do. 
"Very well. There are two courses to follow. You can come down with a fall or spring 

or regular (as the time of the year may be) case of flu, 
"Or you can say, 'I'm sorry, Ross, I can't be on the program: I have too much to do:' 
" 'I am sorry, Tom, I can't help with the P&W, and if you want any heads written, you'd 

better get someone else to writum;' 
" 'I am sorry. Junior or Earl, I can't call the doctor; I have too much to do.' and so on 

ad infinitum. 
"And they all realize that you are supposed to do all these other things and they all say 

with the wisdom of two dozen Minervas, 
" 'You are right, and I will get somebody else to do it,' and thus you are spared a break- 
down modified by nervous. 
"So then you can cram for a test if you have to or do whatever you choose, 
"And what have you to lose!" 

"You are right," said Melvin, "You are absolutely right." 
And he went out and joined a club that night. 
And the next night he joined another and he wrote for the paper i one newstory every 

other week) 
And one day he tried out for a play and got a walk on part with three words to speak; 
The play took a little time because twice he had to go and practice and say "Dinner is 

served" 
But from his purpose he never swerved. 
And he worked and worked and worked, apparently, and finally his reward came and he 

was made happy and his frat brothers even happier 
Because on tap day he was the only freshman in the long and lionorable history of Mill- 
saps to be tapped by Omicron Delta Kappier. 
So here he is a big shot right off the bat--a big shot to start with 
Which is a pretty good time, 
I guess to part with 
Melvin, the pride of Millsaps and Alpha Beta Gamma.

COMMENTARY, '38-'39 

BY CARSON HILTON 

Millsaps lias marched on — its own 
feet at least, this year. Dr. D. M. 
Key, Millsaps pi-esident and great 
man for the past fifteen years, re- 
signed last year in favor of Dr. M. 
L. Smith. We enter the new era. 

Kor those students with ijoor 
memories I will present a hrief 
resume of the events of the year 
which attracted the attention of the 
student body and that embryo 
weekly, the Purple and White. 

The first week of school found 
the enrollment unbelievably high 
and doi'mitory space amazingly 
scarce. That is, scarce until Mill- 
saps' "II. Z. John Pierpont Morgan" 
conceived the idea of stacking beds 
six high in five by ten dormitory 
rooms. This relieved the necessity 
of demanding colonial concessions 
from neighboring institutions to 
take care of our teeming hordes. 
That was the first record history 
has of the "appeasement" policy 
adopted unsuccessfully a few days 
later by Prime Minister Chamber- 
lain of Great Britian. 

This was the same week in which 
Creek students assiduously avoided 
the preserves of their "friendly 
rivals." Great was the enmity 
thereof when two groups "invited" 
the same man to enter their par- 
lois. Aye, 'twas faintly reminiscent 
of the '60's when brother fought 
brother. 

Also, in this same memorable 
week, several students were raised 
from the ranks of the insignificant 
and placed on the Y cabinet, among 
them being the Vice-president of 
the student body. The president 
being left to struggle for recogni- 
tion in other fields. 

By October 1st Dean Key had 
placed twenty eight devotees of the 
.scholastic art on his Dean's list. 
Thus decreasing chapel attendance 
by twenty eight. 

Tryouts were given to candidates 
for the Millsaps Swingers by Mr. 
King. Ninety five members were 
named. 

Ninety seven pledge pins were 
distributed by "local Greeks" at end 
of Rush week. 

The war scares etc. caused a 
precipitation of students on the 
Millsaps National Guard band, 
swelling its numbers beyond that 
of the previous year. 

The P & W announced that Mill- 
saps would at long last have a 
literary magazine under the guid- 
ance of a certain Ph. D. and the 
editorship of a student genius, 
whose names I will not embarass 
them by mentioning. Oh well, the 
announcement was well written; 
the reporter should be congratu- 
lated. 

The Stewed Executive Board 
began the first in a long series of 
futile meetings for the school year. 

But most important of all, a sin- 
ister and feral beast, the dirt- 
dauber, made his first appearance 
of the year in the pages of the P 
& W. He dubbed President Smith 
"baby," a la Mrs. Smith.

Things Such As These 
Must Always Live On 



June . . . and another college year glides away from 
the present to rekindle treasured memories of the 
past. Echoes of Alma Mater reverberate across 
the campus as another class leaves academic halls 
to enrichen a tradition of service already half a 
century in the making. 

September . . . and hearts beat faster as a new class is 
inspired by the Millsaps tradition which now is 
their own. Breathless Today blends with serene 
Yesterday to bring forth a brilliant Tomorrow. 
Drawing upon her heritage of service, Millsaps 
again prepares to carry on. 

Things such as these must always live on! To those 
who know Millsaps and what it stands for, a call 
goes out to keep their college in the vanguard of 
educational leadership and service in Mississippi 
and the South. Don't you know a student who 
should come to Millsaps?

October the eighth was Home- 
coming day with accompauyiuK 
parade. Incidently — ever so inci- 
(lently — there was a ball game that 
iiiiiht in which Millsaps won a bril- 
liant moral victory. 

Millsaps engaged in the usiuil 
sports throughout the year, but 
since this is supposed to be pub- 
licity, I will let the dead past bury 
our bad scores and immortalize oui' 
good ones. Suffice it to say that our 
athletic department had varied suc- 
cess — too varied in fact. There is a 
certain Indian tribe of collegiate 
heathens whom 1 refrain from men- 
tioning for obvious I'easons. 

Coach Gaddy I'esigned during the 
course of the year, and is to be 
replaced by Coach Hook Stone who 
is justifial)ly optimistic about the 
future. We congratulate Coach 
Gaddy on his brilliant victories 
while he has been here and wish 
him luck. He was well liked by 
those who knew him, which is a 
credit to any man. 

The much debated and over- 
looked school calendar was pul)- 
lished by that wishful fantasy the 
SEB. 

I quote from the Purple & White 
of October the thirteenth; "Politi- 
cal Front Quiet Tomorrow As Mill- 
saps Class Elections Loom." Un- 
fortunately that is true, quiet as an 
elephant's graveyard — with the con- 
comitant stench. The winning fra- 
ternity and sorority members with 
their misbegotten sense of fair play 
gloated over their inane victorii^s 
while the defeated powers indig- 
nantly turned their gaze from the 
political sour grapes which they 
had failed to grab, and piously 
shouted, "Line-up." This accusation 
was often impiously denied. 

The ludicrous motto of this same 
issue of the P & W as brazenly 
conceived by our sanguine editor 
was "Beat Those Choctaws." How- 
ever, I hope that motto will be a 
prophecy for next year. 

The following week Doctor Key 
cut chapel attendance six more by 
as many additions to the Dean's 
List. 

The college announced the larg- 
est student body eni'olled in its his- 
tory — 5G2 students — which rapidly 
mounted to over 600. 

Credit to be given here to that 
benighted P & W staff membei- 
who so effectively buried alive the 
art which the great poets had at- 
tached to barren alliteration. May 
his whole dang illiterated tribe de- 
crease. 

W^orthy of mention was the lack 
of tuberculosis on the campus as 
determined by the State Board of 
Health tests. 

Somewhere in here religious 
emphasis week was observed by 
the Ministerial League and Y of- 
ficers. 

Doctor Smith, soon to become 
"Smiley," was inaugurated on Tues- 
day, November. Sth. An under- 
standing and praiseworthy faculty 
abolished compulsory chapel at- 
tendance on Monday, thus allowing 
Y. M. C. A. to meet at that time

and catch a few idle students and 
increase their attendance. This also 
officially decreased chapel non-at- 
tendance. 

Millsaps, famous for its banal 
and boring chapel piograms boasts 
of a few (infinitely few) good ones 
this school year, and shows great 
promise for the future in dis- 
respect. 

The Millsaps players lurched, or 
launched out on a very successful 
year at playing. 

About this time the editor of the 
Bobashela set the first of an indefi- 
nite series of deadlines for Boba- 
shela pictures. 

Millsaps was host to the South- 
ern Debate Tournament in Decem- 
bei'. Professor Ramsey and his de- 
baters should be given a medal for 
their excellent work in this field 
for the school year. All the honors 
they have won this year in the 
tournament were of dubiously in- 
estimable value to the college as 
publicity. 

Merry Christmas! Also a Happy 
New Year! See you after the holi- 
days. 

After the holidays. 

Some optimist decided that they 
could select six beauties from 
among the Millsaps coeds, and By 
George, they did it! 

It was about this time, January 
5, that the P & W started carrying 
copious copy referring to some- 
thing called "Mortmain" laws, 
which seem terribly sensational. 
However, on seizing this oppor- 
tunity to carry on my diligent 
search for knowledge. I found that 
none of the professedly wise whom 
I questioned about this matter 
could tell me what they were, 
though they claimed to understand 
them. 

All during this period a success- 
ful campaign to obtain a post office 
on the campus was carried on with 
the apparent purpose of alleviating 
the necessity of student's going to 
the Grill to get their mail. But for 
deep and subtle reasons the logical 
place for it. The Administration 
Building, remains the logical place 
for it, and the postoffice, steeped 
in irony, resides faithfully in the 
Gym. 

Another campaign was not so 
successful. This was the campaign 
to recognize a certain amount of 
literacy among Millsaps students 
by placing adequate lights in the 
library. 

The paper announced that the 
new girls dormitory would be dedi- 
cated March 12th.. but fortunately 
did not say which March. 

Exams are permanently behind 
most seniors and temporarily be- 
hind under-classmen at the begin- 
ning of the second semester. 

Greek letter organizations in- 
dulged in a bit of initiation to swell 
their ranks. 

Doctor Key brings chapel attend- 
ance down forty-three. By this 
time most students have become 
conscious of the improvements 
made on the campus the previous 
summer and being continued.

Millsaps this year gave birth to 
the nation's first K. A. — I mean 
pre-law fraternity. 

Chi Omega and Pi K. A. tie in 
quality point rating with the Thetas 
and Phi Mus close behind them. 

The "have's" won another empty 
victory in the election in April, and 
the "have-nots" boast of another 
useless moral voctory. However, 
non-partisan student objection to 
such tactics took more concrete 
form than ever before in this elec- 
tion. 

The college announced that next 
year it will march in a department 
of psychology and economics. 

April the 29th was High School 
day— Oh Boy! 

Debaters win "Souheastern 
Crown" and the P & W is awarded 
for the first time first class honors. 

One thing which we can well be 
proud of beyond any doubt is the 
new girls' dormitory to be opened 
next school year. Rumor has it 
that it will be named The David 
Martin Key Dormitory. That is not 
only the most appropriate name for 
it, but it is the only name for it — 
a small reward to Doctor Key for 
his invaluable services to the col- 
lege and the students. 

And so to exams for underclass- 
men and graduation for us sad- 
hearted seniors who soon face ob- 
livion or hard work and both are 
equally undesirable.
