DR. M. L. SMITH 



Tresi^enl's MESSAGE 

Teachers, equipment, space, beauty, atmosphere, tradition, location, students, recognition, 
ideals, and a destiny, well-defined and worthy, are the basic essentials of a great college. 
Teachers, well-chosen, wise and understanding; physical equipment, well-placed and expertly 
manipulated; space, open, abundant, soul-expanding and exliilarating; beauty, of hill and valley, 
of trees and clear sky; atmosphere, inspiring and <-.reative; tradition, glorious, scholarly and 
enduring; location, easily accessible, central, culturally advantageous; students, highly selected, 
limited in number and strong; recognition, official, personal, universal and deserving; ideals, 
of moral, spiritual and mental expansion; destiny, conscious and idealistic. These, I say, are 
the essential characteristics of a great college. 

Once upon a time a man had a dreain of an institution wliich would embody these essentials 
where the youth of Mississippi could glean an insight into that by which men scale the heiglits — 
education. This man was Major Millsaps, and his dream has come true. Millsaps College stands 
today as a symbol of culture fully recognized by every accrediting agency and educational 
association in the United States, and presents a program of learning unhampered by political 
trends, or other factors wliich tend to limit the freedom of man's thought and to hinder his 
pursuit of truth. Millsaps College offers to the highest type of Mississippi boys and girls the 
facilities of an institution deep-rooted in the traditions of scholarship. Conscious as it is of 
constructive work in the past, Millsaps realizes that an even greater goal and an even higher 
trust lie ahead. Millsaps College is now a great center of learning — in the future it will be even 

greater. 

— M. L. SMITH, President.

DEAN W. E. RIECKEN 



(^v^^(!!^ (rM^<r^ (T^v^yrs (T^^^^^ cT'vv^^ 



Recognized as one of the best biology- 
teachers in the South, Dr. Riecken has long 
been liked and admired by students enrolled 
in his classes. So his appointment as dean 
was greeted by pride mingled with anxiety 
as they realized that this might take time 
from his labs and lectures. However, "Dr. 
Bill," as he is affectionately called by his 
close friends, has proved that he is quite 
capable of managing both positions with 
ability--successful because of his real under- 
standing of students and campus life.

Serving as Dean of Women of Millsaps 
College is only one of Mrs. Mary B. Stone's 
many duties, yet it is probably in tills ca- 
pacity that she is best known. Friendly and 
understanding, she is always ready to help 
Millsaps girls solve their almost limitless 
problems. Her liberal outlook and ever- 
present sense of humor go far toward mak- 
ing her one of the best-liked teachers on 
the campus.

STUDENT ^x.c«//.. BOARD 

SEB, formal go-between for students and faculty, 'tho' always campaigning for something, seldom 
achieves its goal. Its members, ever enthusiastic, are not always so harmonious. At a meeting one 
hears Manning vociferously pleading for a statement of the motion. Gee Gee il keep the minutes) 
Swayze, after the discussion is ALL over saying confusedly "What was that, now?" and Jimmy 
Cavett, probably the board's clearest thinker, doing his best to help her out. Conspicuous personali- 
ties who assist in obscuring the issue are Teeny Field, the conscientious objector; J. S. Vandiver, the 
eternal politician; and Jimmy Wall with his conflicting band and 'Shela loyalties. Notable also are 
Tom Robertson, the quiet humorist, and the Moore-Ogden team campaigning for women's rights. 

Seriously, though, they think very hard, come up with some wonderful ideas to which the faculty 
usually says "NO"! Nothing daunted, however, they continue to suggest. Their project for the year. 
Dr. D. M. Key's portrait to hang with those of other Millsaps presidents, was successfully completed.

"Confidentially, now," says Tom, "the real 
power on this campus lies, not in the faculty 
or with the student officers, but in the con- 
trol of student opinion held by Millsaps' ef- 
ficacious fourth estate." 

Comprising the editorial part of this estate 
are such penmen as Clayton Morgan, Law- 
rence Rabb. Mary Askew, "Lad" Waring, 
sports-hound Joe Brooks, and that furtive, 
insectile figure--the much-curst and late- 
lamented Dirt Dauber--all under the direc- 
tion and censorship of Editor-in-Chief, Tom 
Robertson. 

Heart, body and soul to its editor (and 
almost that to its staff) , the "P. and W." 
expresses impartially the views of all who 
dare to publicize them--provides opportunity 
for student radicals and reactionaries to in- 
flame the campus in behalf of their causes. 
Responsibility for student elections, polls, 
and contests, is eagerly assumed by the 
journalists and the results delayed for days 
to provide "scoops." 

The business end of publication is handled 
by Johnny Burwell and a staff including 
such commercialists as Raymond Martin, 
Sidney Graves, and Harris Carter. To them 
belongs the credit for securing the ads. keep- 
ing up the mailing list, and distributing the 
paper in the halls each Thursday morning. 



EDITORIAL ASSISTANTS 



These able reporters spend most of 
their time running down the campus big- 
shots for news on the organizations which 
said big-shots head. Having obtained the 
desired information, they rush frantically 
to a typewriter the last ten minutes be- 
fore deadline to write up their stories. 
They emerge with nerves slightly on edge 
— but triumphant at having turned in 
their assignments.

ASSOCIATE STAFF 

Chichester, Ricks, Jackson. White, and Childress 
distinguished themselves by becoming invaluable to 
the editor, thereby letting themselves in for a lot 
more hard work. And in recognition of this work 
the title "Associate Staff" was created and given to 
them. Contrary to the usual expectations in such 
cases, they lived up to their title, and the 'Shela 
greatly appreciates their contributions. 



€lie BOB 



The function of the Bobashela differs from that of 
the "P. & W." in that its province is history rather 
than the dissemination of news, and its scope includes 
an entire year, rather than a few days. Like the 
"P. & W.", however, it provides an opportunity for 
budding journalists to air their views, and remains 
as a permanent record of their efforts, as well as of 
college activities. 

Organized almost as soon as school started, the an- 
nual staff met regularly to report what it had done; 
to exult in their new staff room; and to deplore the 
lack of privacy which allowed the indispensable Mr. 
Murphy, acting on orders from Dr. Smith, to invade 
tiieir sanctum at any time for the purpose of removing 
property that struck their fancy to "parts unknown" 
elsewhere on the campus. This he did by means of 
the window (which he alone could unbar) and it was 
not at all unusual for Editor Moorer to walk in of a 
morning, bent on serious work, only to find the place 
ransacked, and everything in a turmoil. In spite of 
the frequent confusion, however, the staff did ac- 
complish ? 

Special credit is due. this year, in addition to the 
associate staff, to journalists O'Brien and Rundle. and 
to Assistant Editor, Ess White, general handy man 
and moral support of the editor. 

Following the effective example of Manager Wall, 
the business staff soon became adept at hounding 
the student body to buy books and pounding the 
pavement for adds. Rice Wilson. Jim Thompson, Eva 
DeCell, and chief propagandist Roy Clark were es- 
pecially active in arousing the student body to the 
proper pitch to support the "worthy cause."

just sheer willingness have 
made themselves outstanding 
in the labs, at the grill, or in 
Millsaps' numerous activities.

still manage to get everything 
done, possibly because 73% 
of them have the B-average 
required for Dean's list and 
can cut a class "occasionally."

MILLSAPS 





A tradition as firmly established at Millsaps as 
Lloyds in London is the Homecoming- Day parade, 
when Frosh distinguish themselves by appearing- in 
loud pajamas. It's a glorious occasion--the stirring 
music of the band, the gay floats, cheerleaders almost 
hoarse, and a carefree student body all participating. 
Even sleepy-head Martin was there. 



Just to start the day off right. Dean's 
List Hamilton, entitled by his B-average to 
cut classes when he chooses, chooses to cut 
and amble around the campus with Betty 
Larsen, while — 





Comes 12:30 and the cafeteria stampede, resulting 
in just this. Anders, Worthington, Green and Tynes 
stow away vitamins for football. Must admit 
Anders is g-etting the best of it. 



These students, either less fortunate, or more ambitious, end up in 
Ross Moore's History 61 class. Left to right you see Nash Broyles, 
Glenn Phifer, Cappy Ricks, Charlotte Nichols, and David Donald. 
The vacancies in the rear are because — 




After dinner 2 o'clock labs take their quota. This particular 
photo was made in the physics department, which like all Mill- 
saps sciences, has a well-equipped lab for the ever-increasing 
"B. S." ratio. You can identify Teeny Fields. Virginia Shelton, 
and Tommy Ha thorn. 





It would appear that people such as Albert Martin 
can't even make a 10:20 class, much less a 9:25. 



During lab. while Edwin Farmer and Helen Ruuft 
successfully slip out and dash to the Grill for a 
Coke--- 



Millsaps, small liberal arts college located on the hills of 
Jackson's historic State Street, offers opportunity for fun along 
with the brand of education which entitles her to be on the 
approved list of the Association of American Universities. Many of 
the 650 students are Jackson residents, but there are also represen- 
tatives of the Delta, the Coast, and surrounding states. There are 
even a few popular Yankees among- the "eds" and co-eds who daily 
drink Cokes at the Grill. 





After the game the more socially minded rush madly 
to College Capers (just opposite the campus) for "re- 
laxin" before settling' down to serious study. While Ed 
Fleming and Mary Carraway dance to the nickelodeon, Ed 
Noble, Mary Alyce Moore. Maxine Young, and Edwin 
Farmer all give respectful attention to "professor" Brady. 



T-iOuis Crouch is not so successful. He runs 
into Dr. Riecken and the little matter of 
demerits comes up-. 





After lab no rest for the weary. Here they g"o through their 
routine band practice, with Armand Coullet, plus French accent, 
directing. Their reward comes later in the year when they go on 
concerts and play in chapel. 



Back at the dorms, studes are all set to study. — Could 
do it very well, too, if it weren't for the inevitable "bull 
session" which goes on and on into the wee small hours. 
What do they talk about? — Why everything on earth, 
and the heavens above and waters under — and probably 
you, too, if you're a girl. 




Later in the year also, basketball season 
draws crowds from town, as well as from the 
campus, to the Millsaps Gym, where such stars 
as Charlie Ward demonstrate how the game 
should be played. Because of such outstanding 
men as Charlie, Millsaps scored top honors this 
year in winning the Dixie Conference champion- 
ship. 




And ju^L .^11 >'..'U wun't get the idea that 
students never have a serious thought, we add 
this picture of Pike master minds. Ess White 
and Roy Clark, out to break their own and 
everybody's else records. It may not be so 
typical — but some students do study.

MASTER MAJOR«WMISS MILLSAPS 



Probably the most coveted positions on tlie campus, the titles "Master Major" and 
"Miss Millsaps" go this year to Fred Bledsoe and Sara Rhymes. 

An outstanding athlete, Bledsoe has steadily won friends throughout his four years 
at Millsaps by his sportsmanlike conduct and genial smile. 

Equally outstanding as a cheerleader and band sponsor, Sara has kept pace with 
Bledsoe, and brought wide credit to her Alma Mater as well as to herself. 

The Millsaps student body is proud to present these two as representative students.

PRESIDENT 

Jack Eain, president of the Senior Class, business manager of tlie Glee Club, treasurer of 
the Christian Council, vice-president of ODK, and men's Pan-Hellenic, is Lamba Chi Alpha's 
gift to the coeds, said coeds agreeing that Jack sports the campus's softest shoulder on Avhich 
to cry either before or after exams. Jack says the Glee Club is his favorite activity and Math 
and chemistry his favorite subjects. He's going to be a chemist. 

OFFICERS 

Vice-president of the Senior Class, Nash Broyles is also Rickett's history assistant, and 
PiKA's strong silent man. He's the unpredictable type. There's always a chance that he'll 
turn up at the most formal formal with a black eye or a cauliflower ear (he boxes, or did you 
know?). Fellow members of IRC boost him because he has intelligent opinions on current 
affairs; everybody else Ijoosts him because he's such an all-'round swell fellow. 

Vera Burkhead, secretary-treasurer of the Senior Class and Millsaps' champion booster, 
says Millsaps has the friendliest students in the whole USA and a Grill where she, for one, 
has the time of her life. Her favorite sport is swimming, but she plays a last game of tennis, 
too. She hopes to teach high school history.

house manager of Kappa Alpha, 
etc., etc. . . need we say more? 
He's a likeable lad with a 
syrupy southern drawl. His big- 
gest problem at present is 
"What am I going to be when 
I finish college?" Editor's pre- 
diction: lawyer, banker. 



Rogers, Young, Ward 



€L JUNIOR CLASS 

OFFICERS 

Charles Ward, vice-president of tlie Junior Class, vice-president of the Ramblers club, and 
alternate captain of the varsitv football team, admits the thing he likes best about Millsaps is 
its location. It's near Pelahatchie, and those who know Charlie know why that's important. 
An all-'round athlete, he specializes in basketball. He'll probably be a coach. 

Maxine Young, secretary-treasurer of the Junior Class, vice-president of KD pledges, and 
cheerleader, is a transfer from Wesson who made good here overnight. She likes social science a 
lot, but English, her major, more. (Mrs. Stone please note.) As to the future, Maxme says "Id 
like to be a housewife, but will probably be an old maid school teacher!" Say we, anybody who 
can keep a man six years needn't worry.

PRESIDENT 

Willie Branch, president of 
the Sophomore Class is a rugged 
individualist except with respect 
to Charlie "Ward — to whom he is 
yes-man. After lunch you'll find 
him witli all other football boys 
stationed on the front porch at 
Founders' to watch the parade 
of coeds. He plays both basket- 
ball and football and will prob- 
ably be a coach. However, his 
majors are physics and astron- 
omy. 



Graves, Mansfield, Branch 



Qg Sophomore Class 

OFFICERS 

Sidney Graves, vice-president of the Sophomore Class, circulation manager of the Purple 
and White, says Millsaps cafe(teria) society intrigues him. " — the way some people flirt — . 
Sidney is a pre-med student, and his favorite course is Riecken's biology. 

Martha Mansfield, secretarv-treasurer of the Sophomore Class, vice-president of KD, says 
"I love every single thing about Millsaps, but best of all the students."— Which statement her 
fellow-debunkers-of-History-51 may term "propaganda designed to cloud the issue of one 
special — single — student! (And she's going to be a school teacher because she's not optimistic 
about proposals.)

Christmas, Sumrall, Ross 



Qg Freshman Class 



PRESIDENT 

Davis Christmas, president of tlie Freshman Class, liailing from Laurel, is a radical! He 
approves Millsaps' policy of education first, footliall second, and he's the Minor star quarter- 
back. He'd like to retire and inherit a million dollars (wouldn't we all) but concludes that he'll 
probably wind up a patient young chemist playing- nursemaid to a batch of test-tubes. 

OFFICERS 

Billy Ross, vice-president of the Freshmen and KA pledges, is going to be a lawyer. How- 
ever, the versatile young man likes history, is majoring in social sciences, and feels he has 
gotten the most out of his English course. 

r Geraldine Sumrall, secretary-treasurer of the Freshman class, president of KD pledges, 
editor of Frosh P&W and sponsor's maid at the Birmingham-Southern game, plans to major 
in voice. Her favorite activity is Glee Club, favorite subject French, favorite sport football: 
she herself plays badminton and ping pong.

"M" 



CLUB 



The "M" Club is composed of students who win letters in athletic compe- 
tition at Millsaps and is one of the strongest organizations on the campus, 

Terry Walters served as president of the club during the past year; Ed 
Hogan was vice-president; William Green, secretary-treasurer, and Milan Rich- 
ardson was elected club reporter. 

The "M" Club has been especially active this year and has had a large 
increase in members because of the number of junior college transfers who 
played football this season. 

The clubroom located in the basement of the gymnasium in one of the 
favorite hangouts of Millsaps athletes for bull sessions, studying, or "snoozing."

B. O. VAN HOOK 

Athletic Director 

B. O. Van Hook has been 
serving as athletic director, 
coach of the basketball 
team, and coach of the 
track team for many seas- 
ons now and is one of the 
most popular members of 
the faculty. He has had 
especial success this year 
with his basketball team, 
which led the Dixie Con- 
ference during the season. 



THE COACHING STAFF 



FOOTBALL 



Henry Louis "Hook" Stone has just finished his first year 
as head football coach at Millsaps, coming here with a 
notable record for turning out championship grid teams at 
Copiah-Lincoln Junior College. Stone enjoyed a winning 
season in 1939 and has laid most of the groundwork for 
Millsaps' championship teams of the future. 

Hook's football assistant this year was Bernie Ward, 
whose assistance has been very valuable. 

Freshman Coach Melvin Richardson has continued his 
fine work of past seasons, leading the yearling gridders 
through their best season in years and coaching a winning 
first-year basketball team. 



THE CHEERLEADERS 

No collegiate athletic contest is 
complete without cheerleaders, and 
Millsaps has been fortunate in hav- 
ing an excellent squad. Under the 
leadership of Head Cheerleader 
Pemble "Teeny" Field, they have 
given much of their time and energy 
to keeping Millsaps' school spirit at

I MILLSAPS 



THE MANAGERS AND THE FOOTBALL, SQUAD 

Under the guidance of its new coach, Henry 
Louis "Hook" Stone, the varsity football team went 
tnrough its first winning season in several years, 
winning four games, losing three and tying two. 

Millsaps got off to a flying start in Coach Stone's 
debut game by defeating Delta State 14--0 at the 
fair grounds. Charlie Ward and Milan Richardson 
led the way. 

In their next start the Majors journeyed to 
Birmingham and upset the Dixie Conference cham- 
pion Howard team 7--6. This was Millsaps' best 
played game of the season and was featured by 
the work of Ward, Granville Hamby, AVillie Carter, 
and Phillip Shipp. 

On Saturday of the state fair week the Purple 
and White battled to a scoreless tie with the pow- 
erful State Teachers College Yellowjackets. Union 
L^niversity handed the Methodists their first defeat 
of the season by trouncing them 12--0 at Jackson, 
Tennessee. 

The Birmingham-Southern Panthers rallied to tie 
Millsaps 7--7 at the fair grounds after Phil Shipp 
had sent the Majors ahead with a fifty yard punt 
return. Interest in Jackson soared to a new high 
over the traditional Millsaps-Mississippi Colleere 
clash, but the Choctaws surprised Major fans with 
an astonishing 29--0 whitewashing. 

The Purple Platoon defeated Spring Hill 6--0 be- 
fore a large Homecoming Day crowd on a brilliant 
punt return and forward pass by Sophomore Half- 
back Ed Matulich. Mississippi State trounced the 
scrappy Majors 40--0, and then the varsity wound 
up its season with a 2--0 victory over the West 
Tennessee Teachers at Memphis. 

The entire Major team showed excellent ability 
and fine spirit throughout the tough nine-game 
season. 

Granville "Pap" Hamby, a transfer from Copiah- 
Lincoln Junior College, won honors for himself and 
the team by winning a guard position on the All 
Dixie Conference team.

GRANVILLE "Pap" HAMBT 

Right Guard Granville "Pap" 
Hamby was easily the outstand- 
ing football player on the team. 
An all-state junior college star 
at Wesson, Hamby was selected 
on the All-Dixie Conference 
team in his first year at Mill- 
saps. He is expected to repeat 
again next year. 



WILLY CARTER, End 

Willy Carter developed into 
one of the best defensive ends 
in Millsaps' history and turned 
in some brilliant exhibitions of 
wing- play last season.

Playing his last year of foot- 
Ixill, Terry Walters was one of 
the Majors' strongest assets 
with his fine playing and team

"Cke FRESHMEN 



The 1939 freshman football team, directed by Coach Melvin 
Richardson, enjoyed the best season of any Millsaps yearling team 
in several years. The strong Minors won three games and lost only 
one. 

After losing their opener 9-0 to the Ellisville Junior College 
gridders, the frosh defeated Perkinston Junior College 12-0 in a 
home game. 

Ed Gillum, brilliant Millsaps halfback, led the locals to a 7-0 
victory over the powerful Louisiana Tech first-year eleven, and the 
Minors swamped their Mississippi College rivals 40-0 to close their 
season. 

Ed Gillum starred in the yearling backfield, while Burnell Smith, 
Jay Smith, Tex Cleckler, and the entire line made a name for them- 
selves by their great play.

The basketball team enjoyed its best season in years during 1940. breezing through 
a difficult schedule in fine fashion and being crowned Dixie Conference champions by 
winning the Dixie tournament held in Jackson. 

The fine showing of the hoopsters this season was largely due to the excellent coach- 
ing of B. O. Van Hook, who started from scratch at the opening of the season but whip- 
ped together a championship team in short order, 

Millsaps made a runaway of the conference tourney by trouncing Mercer, Chatta- 
nooga, Howard, and their rivals, Mississippi College, in the final game. The Majors split 
a four game series with the Choctaws and wound up their regular schedule with 12 wins 
and 10 losses. 

Sophomore Cliff Jones and veteran Charlie Ward, both All-Dixie selections, topped 
Millsaps' scorers with their eagle-eyed shooting. Willy Branch and Oscar Tynes also 
showed scoring ability, and Wiley "Army" Williams. Willy Carter, and Milan Richardson 
turned in brilliant defensive work.

A large squad answered Coach Bernie Ward's call for baseball candidates 
and has been working hard to get into shape for another two months of 
strenuous diamond activity. 

On paper the club seems to shape up about as strong as it did last year, 
with only three men lost by graduation, although their departure weakens the 
hitting strength somewhat. 

Lettermen returning for service are catcher Virgil Anders, infielders Milan 
Richardson, Ed Matulich, and Ed Fleming; Wallis Litton, William Green, Herb 
Selman, Les Cooper, and Charley Ward. Rounding out the team are Blondy 
Samuels. Bull Hart, and Woodrow Fox.

COACH RICHARDSON 

Only a few years ago Coach 
Melvin Richardson was breaking 
track records at Millsaps as an 
undergraduate. Just to prove that 
he is still in shape, he clears a 
hurdle in perfect (?) form. 




TRACKSTERS 



As we go to press the track team has not yet begun the most 
extensive schedule it has faced in several seasons. Track meets 
have been slated against such opponents as Mississippi College, 
Southwestern, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and the other Dixie Con- 
ference members. 

Prospects are not as bright as they were for the 1939 club. Such 
outstanding stars as Blondy Rush, Bert Melton. Gerald Carmichael, 
Wirt Beard, Shotgun Herron, and Gene Price are missing. 

However, the cinder artists have some fine competitors on hand 
this season in low hurdler Joe Miles, high hurdler Ford "Scoop" 
Canterbury, jumper Gordon Worthington. pole vaulter Jay Smith, 
weight thrower H. I. Ellzey, and javelin thrower J. B. Upton, and 
are expected to garner lots of points in each meet.

TENNIS TEAM 

The 1940 tennis team appeared to be better than last year's in its early 
practice and should go through a fairly successful season, although only two 
lettermen returned. 

Playing in the number one position again was Earl Epperson, the star 
freshman of the 1939 team, who had the best individual record last year. Ira 
Thorn, another sophomore, was the only veteran to return. 

The best of the newcomers are little Johnny Miller and lanky W. E. 
Simmons, who have been playing excellent tennis and who show a great deal 
of promise. 

De Loach Cope and Pee Wee Armstrong round out the team, which is 
coached by Dr. M. C. White.

The Women's Athletic Association outlines and 
carries out an extensive program of athletics for 
girls, including physical education classes and intra- 
mural competition between the sororities. 

Among the wide range of sports offered on the 
program are basketball, volleyball, tennis, softball, 
table tennis, badminton, archery, and golf.

GEORGE PETTY 



Seiecls ike Jjeauli 



es 



In order to get a real artist's opinion 
of tlie beauties wlio rule Millsaps' 
campus, pictures of twenty girls, se- 
lected as "choice" by Student Execu- 
tive Board, were sent this year to 
George Brown Petty for judging. 
Artist Petty, well-known for his 
sketches of lovely girls, obligingly ac- 
cepted the task, and we give you here 
his selection. 

As "Queen," Sara Rhymes; as the 
next five, Bert Watkins, Myrtle Ruth 
Howard, Una Caldwell, Louise Moorer, 
and Sara Stephens.

In addition to possessing the beauty which won her laurels as "Queen," 
Sara's also versatile enough to fit in any group. She swims, cooks, types, 
bicycles, — but dislikes bridge. Band and football sponsor, she likes athletes, 
and is B. S. U. president. She doesn't like sweets, fellows, so send flowers, 
red preferred.

^STS'^lT^^SS^^ 



Quoting Bert, "My hobby, if you could call it that, is picnicking." Her 
favorite sport was mastered also by Robin Hood and William Tell. In English 
class and Glee Club she shines. Believe it or not — she's one red-headed girl 
without a temper.

ATLi 



Her continual hiccoughs do not seem to bother good-natured Myrt, who 
adds gay notes to any gathering. She's artistically inclined, wild about dancing 
and having her picture made, but black cats give her cold chills. 



92 




(/^ ... l^JL^^A^JA. 



Boys, here's another good cook. Una likes teas, "The One Rose," and good 
conversation; has a peculiar nickname — "Boy." If she gets by Dr. Musgrave, 
she may teach psychology someday, too.

and making gingerbread.

FAVORITES 



According to George Petty's own admis- 
sion, he had a hard time selecting six "Most 
Beautiful" girls out of the group of twenty 
pictures sent him. 



These fourteen others, equally as attrac- 
tive to those who know them, take their 
places as Millsaps' favored favorites. You 
see them everywhere, adding charm to any 
group. 





^ BEVERLEY DICKERSON 

Xylophonists aren't nearly as bad as they sound — 
take Beverley, for instance. She's plenty good at 
cheer-leading-, too, and if you ever see her without 
her chewing gum — look again — it can't be Beverley! 



VIRGINIA SWAYZE 

Millsaps' baby — Gee-Gee. in her senior year, is 
Just eighty-nine pounds of friendliness — four feet 
ten inches of school spirit. Dramatics, chapel-cut- 
ting, politics, and shades of green appeal to her. 
She has a secret love, too. 



96 




GLENN PHIFER 



DOLORES DYE 



Equally at home behind the footlights, in French 
Club, in the kitchen, in the water, or at the ball — 
Glenn is, however, deniureness, itself. She likes 
formal parties, enjoys classical music, won't walk 
under ladders, and edited last year's "Bobashela." 



You've seen Dolores in the spotlight before, as 
Millsaps' favorite tap-dancer. She can draw, too — 
may be a designer. Her grades are about "tops," 
(as President of Eta Sigma, they should be!) When 
it comes to sports, she'll take roller-skating. 




NANETTE KARRAKER 

Nanette was "Miss Tutwiler" before she got in 
our beauty section. She has three-day crushes; 
likes Tyrone Power, "Stardust," scrapbooks, and 
Millsaps boys, ("they're tops!"); once fell all the 
way down Galloway's stairs. Call her "Blondie." 



ANN STONE 

Ann easily disproves the axiom, "pretty, but 
dumb." Among other things she enjoys good inusie, 
good books, long walks: and she's quite a French 
scholar. For your own safetj' — don't pop your gum 
when she's within hearing distance. 



97 




GERALDINE SUMRALL 



MARTHA CONNER 



Gerry's a whiz at ping-pong and really not bad as 
a vocalist. If she chooses a career it will probably 
be music. Dramatics and journalism (she edited 
the "Freshman P. & W.") also claim a share of hei 
time. 



A senior at nineteen, "Shorty" plans a career in 
a laboratory. An outdoor girl, she likes camping; 
spends her time cooking (she's good, boys), playing, 
swimming, and glee-clubbing. She enjoys informal 
parties and is keen about athletes. 




MAXINE YOUNG 



DORA FRANCES GREEN 



The Junior Class's Secretary smiles longingly at 
scrap-books, ambrosia, picnics, football heroes, and 
anything" blue; is good at tennis and, so she says, 
singing. She's a Millsaps cheer-leader and bites 
her finger-nails. 



Dee-Dee, another drum majorette, is a shai'p 
history student, understands politics, and keeps up 
with world affairs. Dancing's her hobby, though; 
soft-ball and swimming — her sports. No career for 
her, she'll graduate in '43, travel a year, and marry 
— maybe. 



98 




MARY FAY REESE 



MILLICENT LAMPS 



This black-haii'ed, brown-eyed, former M. S. C. 
W. Most Beautiful came to Millsaps because she'd 
"always wanted to go to school in Jackson." Her 
favorite sport is tennis; study — religion. Talents? — 
Well, principally just poise and friendliness. 



Glamorous and ambitious. INIillie is taking, of all 
things, Pre-med!. will proljably be a laboi'atcjry 
technician. A strange mixture of talents leads her 
to music, zoology, aquatics, dancing, mathematics, 
and bath-tub-caroling. Red's her color. 




OLGA WRIGHT 

Domestic and talented, Olga is an expert seam- 
stress, a good cook, an accomplished equestrienne, 
and a drum-majorette. Speedy in an auto, she 
prefers "sweet" music, but jitterbugs "conserva- 
tively." New friends, sororities, and fun brought 
her to Millsaps. 



MARTHA MclLWAIN 

This Delta lass has already set her eye (and 
heart) on one lucky Major, Hailing from where 
she does, Martha's naturally fond of dancing and 
horse-back riding. She also plays golf, and has 
never had enough strawberry shortcake.

MEN'S PAN-HELLENIC 



Nobody has a very clear idea of just what these boys liave 
done in this partiouhir capacity. That's probal^ly because there 
isn't a great deal for them to do; among Millsaps' pet prides 
are her inter-fraternity relations. The groups all have a great 
deal of self-pride, and tell jokes on each other, but when it comes 
to getting along on the campus, they can do that too. The Men's 
Pan-Hellenic, composed of two representatives from each fra- 
ternity, is here anyway in case it should be needed ; it yearly 
goes over the rushing rules, which have become routine, meets 
once or twice, and that's that.

WOMEN'S PAN-HELLENIC 

Composed of two repvesentatives from each sorority, this 
group acts as combination Congress and Supi'eme Court to set 
up rushing rules and act as arbiter of the rare misunderstandings 
among sororities. They entertain tiie men's Pan-Hellenic once a 
year — this year with a supper and picture show on February 7, 
and under their banner the sororities enjoy a picnic in the spring 
where they all pal around before rushing. But the 1939-40 
Women's Pan-Hellenic will go down in history, not because of 
their fidelity to what is expected of the organization, but because 
they went even further to sponsor Leap Week, February 24:-]\Iarch 
2 when girls made dates, went broke, and had fun generally, turn- 
ing the tables on the men.

For fourteen years Beta Sigs have burned the midnight oil in their Grecian lamp 
at Millsaps. and never to more advantage than this year: by its light President Frances 
Ogden continues her string of A's while running Woman's Association; Mary Askew 
piles up honoraries like Porter piles up frosh tumblers; and Martha Conner has disrupted 
senior chapel distributing chapter mail! And of course there's Martha Kendrick, whom

Established at Millsaps ------------- March 31. 1934 

Colors ---------------- Cardinal and Straw 

Flower ---------------- White Carnation 

Publication ------------ "The Eleusis of Chi Omega" 

The X and horseshoe is comparatively new among sorority pins at Millsaps, having 
first appeared on a sweater in 1934. The present chapter is famous for Homecoming 
floats, angora sweaters, and the Every Afternoon Bridge Club which holds forth in the 
southwest side of the new dorm. They sing Chi Omega words to any tune you can 
mention; the secret to this is Sheffield. They pester their pledges about activities, tell 
them to work hard and they'll grow up to be like Glenn. Convenient for the sisterhood 
are Ann. who knows all about French, scientist Nichols; Little Bit and Una B. who can 
pick dropped stitches; big-shots Phifer. O'Brien. Moorer. Stone; and "Oh, I'd love to!" 
Ricks who will plan a party, work on drives, and can also fix you up with the profs.

WOMAN'S ASSOCIATION 

Founded back in the dim darlt past when coeds were few, the Woman's 
Association served to bring them together and to deal with their problems. Now 
that many of its functions have been taken over by the YWCA, the Association 
continues to meet monthly for a program of discussion, gives student body 
parties, of which the most hilarious this year was that which led off '"Leap 
Week."

division. 4th corps area, 3rd army--leads our parades, turns out 
in all its regalia for our football games, and presents a cliapel 
program once a year. They also are available for concerts in 
nearby towns, played about seven such this year. 

In November the boys spent a week in training, fulfilling 
their obligation to Uncle Sam--who further requires two drills 
a week these days. (It used to be only one before things got 
under way Over Tliere. l Right-hand man to Director Armand 
Coullet is lanky Jimmy Wall, wlio almost froze at camp but was

Y. M, C. A. CABINET 

Big-shots of the Y. M. C. A., these religious leaders meet twice a month to take up 
problems dealing with school spirit, faculty-student relations, social activity, student 
devotion, and in general strive to create and maintain a wholesome atmosphere about the 
campus. 

Such shining lights as Jimmy Cavett, J. S. Vandiver, and Bo Murry preside over the 
hurried meetings where all motions are quickly passed, over Cappy's invariable, unyield- 
ing opposition, and adjournment called. Combined, but futile, efforts of members are 
exerted to hold down radical Rabb, who at each new issue becomes more excited. 

Sponsored by the YM, working with the YW, this year were such projects as the 
outstanding successful student body banquet, the servants' Christmas party, and begin- 
nings of an "adequate social program for Millsaps."

Y. W. C. A. CABINET 



This organization within the larger YW is made up of the officers and committee 
chairmen (program, publicity, service, social, campus-church relations) who meet at 
intervals to rejoice or deplore about current campus problems. 

Mrs. Stone and Miss Thomas act as an advisory board for projects which the cabinet 
thinks up and presents to the Association. Their "something-differents" include their 
valentine party for Methodist Orphanage children, class-program series, to determine the 
talent in the several classes, and discussion of men and women relations. 

It was also the YW which brought Mrs. Morgan to the campus for a week-end; Mrs. 
Morgan provoked more thought than any one speaker in some time.

The high spot of the year for the A Capella group came this year between Maixh 24 
and April 7. when the whole choir, 43 strong, piled into a Greyhound bus for an extensive 
singing tour through the states of Mississippi, Tennessee. Indiana. Ohio. Alabama, 

Living off the fat of the land, they did their bit toward advertising the college and 
"spreading the good will of united Methodism"; and it was with pride that Mr, King 
presented them to his hometown in Smithville. Ohio, well pleased with the fruit of his 
hard work. 

Other programs given during the year included Christmas carols, a spring festival, 
stops in Hattiesburg and Meridian, and a short stop outside Pelahatchie when the bus 
broke down, forcing the singers to hitch-hike into town,

OMICRON DELTA KAPPA 



'I' 



About 1926 Omicron Delta Kappa decided that Millsaps was an institution worthy of 
representation within its ranks and located Pi circle here. Since then the coveted key 
has dangled from the watch-chains of the biggest of the Big Men On Campus. Members, 
whose leadership in scholarship, athletics, publications, forensics. and dramatics, is recog- 
nized and thus honored meet once a month to discuss school improvement, shoot the bull, 
and black-ball prospective members. Four faculty members. Drs. Smith, Riecken, Moore, 
and Wharton, are active in the circle, while numerous others wear the key. Dr. Moore 
served this year on the governing council of the national organization. 

Projects recently fostered by the group include the Millsaps Post Office, our new 
cafeteria, and the new walks on the campus. Tap Day and High School Day are annually 
entrusted to their care. 

Representing the culmination of honorary recognition, the golden key of O. D. K. is 
one of the few badges of college years which definitely marks a man in later life.

Sponsored by ODK when co-eds grew numerous enough to develop leaders in their 
ranks, Sig L's now rival their founders in campus project-ing, provide more entertain- 
ment. The Faculty Frolic and Spring Varsity Show are their responsibilities. 

At the monthly supper meetings the feminine big shots swap campus gossip with 
each other and their faculty members. On the more serious side, they joined this year 
with ODK in discussion of the Millsaps honor system. 

The girls came to with a start mid-semester realizing that they all graduated in June, 
but Tap Day found a new chapter carrying the torch and talking fondly of some day 
becoming a Mortarboard chapter.

ETA SIGMA 



With no SAE's on the campus, Minerva, goddess of wisdom, claims these master-minds 
as her devotees; she hopes that some day they will become a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa 
<most of the faculty members already wear the key), but meanwhile rewards them with 
almost consistent straight-A's, Only a Millsaps student can fully appreciate what a 
straight-A average means here; and for the holders to find time to shine in other campus 
pastimes is nothing short of miraculous. But Minerva never was a sissy,

DELTA KAPPA DELTA 

Delta Kappa Delta, the youngest of Millsaps' honoraries, recognizes interest in law, 
government, and politics. It was founded in the spring of '38 by politically-minded KA's 
who claimed it to be an outgrowth of the older Pre-Law club from which it now draws 
its members. 

Presiding over the group is Dickie Lauderdale; its sponsor and only faculty member 
is the Honorable Professor Raymond R. Haynes, former Vice-consul to Scotland and 
England. Great achievement of the year was the finger-printing for Uncle Sam, of all 
students who could be coaxed, coerced, or cornered. The future barristers hold mock- 
trials, receive counsel from prominent attorneys of tlie state and promote interest in 
civic matters. DKD, the only pre-law honorary in the South (so they claim) has made 
plans for expansion to other schools.

PI KAPPA DELTA 

This assemblage of honorable arguers dates back to 1926 when the key, ornamented 
with all sorts of mystic symbols, was first awarded to students with two years of inter- 
collegiate debating experience. Since then it has also gone to orators and extemporaneous 
speakers. 

Vandiver and Clark are the prize team with numerous tournament honors to their 
credit. 

The chapter was host to a regional debate meet December 1, 2 and sent teams to the 
national Pi Kappa Delta tournament in Knoxville, Tenn,, March 24-29.

ALPHA EPSILON DELTA 



Dr. Riecken's youngest child, Mississippi Alpha of Alpha Epsilon Delta, has since 
1935 recognized scholarship and general aptitude in pre-med work; has sought to point 
out in its members those intangible attributes which foretell success in the practice of 
medicine. Its purpose is to acquaint under-grads with situations which will face them in 
med-school and The Profession and to provide practical training for the future medicos. 

Led by such scientists as Streety Hamilton, Jimmy Booth, and Lancaster, the group 
sponsored the physical examinations this year, assisted in orientating freshmen, and suc- 
ceeded in making physical check-ups compulsory for entrance to Millsaps.

The oldest and (say they) most exclusive honorary on the campus, Kit-Kat is and 
intends to remain a local fraternity whose memibers are recognized for their ability in 
creative writing. (Even your frat brothers can't get you in if you aren't accepted as a 
local genius!) The would-be authors meet monthly to dine sumptuously, hear and 
criticize (above all, criticize) original papers, listen to Dr. White's discussions of his thesis 
on Arthur Murray, and discuss trends and events of the literary world. 

Such literary greats as Ricks, Painter, Kolb, and Robertson go about patting each 
other on the back for their good fortune at being within the circle, whispering of the 
horrors of initiation, and bragging of the unique and outstanding camaraderie of their 
meetings. Recognition by Kit-Kat is, they assure themselves, the highest honor, the 
greatest privilege that can come to a student of literature.

CHI DELTA 



This literary group, calling themselves "Bluestockings", is now a local, having 
deserted a national with which they were once affiliated because they could have just 
as much fun on their own. 

They meet once a month in member's or faculty homes, drink tea, and listen to 
papers which they take turns in writing. Criticisms vary: Miss Porter: "You know, I 
think--that it's--delicate! Yes, delicate— and--and lovely, too." Miss Fitts: "Oh. it's 
sweet!" Mrs. Stone: "I didn't quite catch the last line; would you read it again, please'?" 
.... and so on. 

As talk becomes general, refreshments are served, and from then on it's every genius 
for herself.

ETA SIGMA PH 



These students of the classics, sponsored by Dr. Hamilton, represent for Millsaps 
the national honorary frat which promotes scholarship m the classics and "loves beauty 
and wisdom." 

Requiring an average of B for three semesters in its chosen subject. Eta Sigma Plii 
is recognized as a signal honor by BA students; but pre-med Jimmy Booth, wlio reigns 
as president this year over the gold and royal purple, is living proof that at Millsaps. 
anyway, prowess in Latin receives honor equal to prowess in lab.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB 

They really aren't Socialists; they're just broadminded! They have a special book- 
case in the library overflowing with lengthy tomes which you read to make an A in 
Current History or when you are on a program. 

The bi-weekly meetings are held sometimes at the Chi Omega house and sometimes 
in homes; they consist of a couple of papers on current topics of more or less interest 
to the group. Lancaster, Clark, and Vandiver make intelligent comments, the co-eds say 
"I don't think so," at appropriate intervals, and Dr. Moore moves adjournment. Vice- 
President Ann Stone served this year as secretary of the state organization which met 
in Jackson on February 17 for a conference to settle the problems of the world.

ALPHA PSI OMEGA 



The elite of the Millsaps dramatic world, giants of the stage, form the membership of 
Alpha Psi Omega. These veteran Thespians advise and hold firmly in check the boisterous 
Millsaps Players. A worthy goal in itself, especially coveted by KD's as a matter of 
tradition, recognition by Alpha Psi Omega has also served as a stepping-stone to ODK 
and Sigma Lambda. 

Meetings this year have largely been given over to consideration of the deplorable 
fact that no one owns a pin and to the debating of several dark secrets concerning the 
identity of the officers. Each member of the group, from Whitsett on down, has identi- 
fied himself with some special work in the field of play production and has been respon- 
sible for that particular phase at each performance. And then there is always the problem 
of Helen Ricks, who is eternally, incessantly mugging.

THE DRAMATICS CLUB 



Under the leadership of Dr. White and the guiding hand of Alpha Psi Omega, the 
Millsaps Players encourage dramatic talent by numerous productions with students in 
charge of everything, from make-up to properties to advertisements. Carefully mixing 
new with experienced actors, the Players can usually be depended on for a good evening's 
performance— a fact which people of Jackson are coming to appreciate more and more. 
Hard work in the Players is rewarded on Tap-Day by the blue and yellow ribbons of 
Alpha Psi Omega.

BEETHOVEN CLUB 

This organization of music students hopes soon to become a chapter of Sigma Alpha 
Iota, national music frat. If the Greek letters want a group that really knows its treble 
and bass, we rise to recommend them. But if they are looking for wild-eyed genius and 
temperament, we fear they will be disappointed here. So prudent are these musicians 
that they are governed by 8 officers, including 3 vice-presidents.

THE RAMBLERS CLUB 

It isn't just a name; they really ramble, down to Byram and up to the petrified 
forest near Flora to see in reality some of the formations which they study in geology 
classes. Always out in front is tireless, chocolate-eating Chief High Rambler Sullivan, 
discovering, explaining, and bringing to life again the world of some milleniums back. 
Sometimes petrified discoveries are lugged back to the campus and deposited for the 
enlightenment of posterity in the Millsaps museum, which was itself "discovered" this 
year by the petrified P&W, campus weekly.

MINISTERIAL LEAGUE 

This group of ministers-to-be, presided over by dignified and earnest Felix Sutphin, 
meets weekly with outside speakers as the main programs. 

Each spring they fete and feast their dates at the Ministerial League banquet, always 
a high spot in the current calendar. The league has this year debated the "dances for 
Millsaps" problem, — along with the rest of the campus. It also worked throughout the 
year with the Conference Board of Christian Education, furnished Sunday School teachers 
for the Mississippi School for the Deaf, and took charge of church services in communities 
near Jackson when the opportunity presented itself.

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? 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

M. L. SMITH, President JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI 



BOBASHELA CALENDAR 

SEPTEMBER 

School starts; U. Z. urges B. S. degrees 
and lab fees. Profs urge book buying; upper- 
classmen urge trosh to hurry and make up 
their minds. Cokes mount up! 

Silence days; sorority girls depend on 
little sisters and boy friends to hang onto 
rushees to protect from enemy little sisters 
and boy friends. 

Pledging; roses and carnations flood the 
campus and S:5 beaming pledges swim out. 

Boys start rushing seriously. Car acci- 
dentally rolls across campus into foundation 
of new Pike house. Pikes eye KA's but Roy 
convinces them Van's a good fello\v. Wonder 
a bit and have foundation fixed. 

Boys rushing; girls take each other to the 
grill. (They had to buy books anyway, you 
know) Moore and Wharton are nice to them, 
but even so, tension is greatly relieved when 
Boys pledge; take girls to grill. Moore and 
Wharton go alone or with each other. W. 
is having teeth tilled, anyway. 

IRC meets, .5 girls, 4 boys present. Decide 
to have a picnic and elect new members. 
Decide to elect new members first, vote of 
5 to 4. 

New cheerleaders announced, and Maxine, 
Beverly, and Eleanor are congratulated. 
Ditto the band and new sponsors Green, 
Wright and Lampe. 

YWCA cabinet wants to have banquet 
welcoming students. First date in popular 
Gee Gee's calendar is December 25. Decides 
everyone will be welcome by then and 
abandons idea. 

New teachers (Wharton, Ricketts, Mus- 
grave, Galloway, Mrs. Sanders, Wallace, 
West, Emigli ) and freshmen are being in- 
spected by seniors and approved or scorned 
accordingly. 

Dirt dauber falls from hands of KA 
chapter to — well, falls. 

Moon is full and Millsaps wins first foot- 
ball game, beating Howard 14-0, to close a 
very successful month, in the whole. 

OCTOBER 

Millsaps has a dean at last! Dr. Riecken 
is announced as the fellow by the board of 
trustees, to the great satisfaction of all con- 
cerned — and the special gratification of the 
Science majors, who told us all along that he 
was a great guy. 

Politics get underway in class elections 
with results as pictured in the front of the 
book. 

24 prospective teachers kiss their after- 
noons goodbye and wend their way to Jack- 
son schools to see how its done and flirt 
with that cute little trick on the front row.

Sorority receptions and frat picnics con- 
tinue to survive as agencies to meet people: 
girl A asks boy B to be date at reception; 
boy B repays by taking girl A to picnic; girl 
A repays by taking boy B to her picnic; 
result: girl A meets boy B. Need for social 
program discovered by some bright soul. 

Students adjoui-n daily to see the 11 
o'clock parades during Pair week. Profs 
with classes from 10:20 to 12:10 decide 
that next year at this time they'll hold them 
on Capitol street. 

Oh yes. the Pair! You probably remember 
that without our help. 

Mrs. Morgan comes and dishes out com- 
mon sense in large doses to large groups, 
inspiring countless bull-sessions on every- 
thing from marriage to politics. Campus 
unanimous in praise. 

NOVEMBER 

Pikes dedicate their pride and joy and 
invite the campus in to inspect. Campus 
much impressed, especially by wall-paper in 
hall. 

To dance or not to dance hotly debated, 
with P&W radicals losing whatever standing 
they had with the Ministerial League. Side 
issue: where do jitterbugs Oliver and 
Wroten stand? Or are they sitting down'? 

Preshman talent starts rehearsing one- 
act plays for debut on Millsaps boards, 
coached by upper-classmen and Dr. White, 
in his spare moments. 

Dance question slips out of sight for 
duration of Nov. 11. Parade, open house; 
S pg. P&W, half about Homecoming, half 
about Armistice day propaganda. Rabb: "It 
is my contention that this homecoming is 
not a parallel to those of 1915, 16, 17, 18, but 
a day on which America is doing what it 
thinks is right and a day on which America 
shall continue to do what is right other than 
going to war." Robertson: "The ills of 
Europe, if America must cure them, cannot 
be cured by the sword — it has been tried 
for two thousand years. America can best 
serve her purpose by striving not to take 
sides in the present war." Dirtdauber pre- 
dicts merger by Belhaven and Millsaps. 

P&W also — weeks later — decides to name 
new dorm. Result, Grenworth, which nobody 
could remember to say . 

Radio program over WSLI really getting 
underway, with and without orchestra. Live- 
say does nobly as Winchell, minus dirt, and 
Lib Campbell vocalizes. 

Confusion over Thanksgiving settled by 
taking cuts and celebrating both.

DECEMBER 

Month gets underway with debaters 
swarming on campus from seven states (or 
annual warm-up tourney. Got more than 
warm, got hot, especially the girls, who 
didn't like each other so good. Coeds look 
the boys over, flirt mildly, but no broken 
hearts when they go. 

E. O. Harbin beams at the campus, talks 
about social program, suggests skating rink 
in Coach Van's prized gym. Rabb is all for 
it. 

Sigma Lambda dresses up the profs and 
they put on a return performance of the 
Destreect School. Cute kids: Peck's Bad 
Boy Moore; Sling-shot Sullivan; Tricycle 
Mitchell; and that coy little Jenny Thomas; 
Sissy Wharton; — and on into the night. 
Huge success. 

Home for Christmas, no rest for the 
weary; everybody else is home too. Large 
time had by all, and we come back to school 
properly exhausted for: 

JANUARY 

Exams, remember? Or would you rather 
remember The Snow, which started falling 
at 2 o'clock on Monday, first day of exam 
week! There were frozen pipes for the old 
(rat houses, so the boys shaved over at the 
Pikes'. There were boots for all and sundry, 
and jodphurs for the shaplier coeds. Snow- 
balls in profusion, ditto exam cuts, ditto fun. 

Joe Brooks gets a glorified picture on top 
of his P&W column and editor Robertson 
is loudly censured (or allowing it. We love 
him like he is. 

FEBRUARY 

Dr. Smith, Mr. Murphy and O D K get to 
work on Murrah Curve, on the theory that 
they are doing this for Grady Graham's own 
good. But it hurts us as much as it does 
them, because it turns out to be a slow pro- 
cess and wet concrete is a nuisance. 

We will all be each other's Valentines, 
because we all love each other, because this 
is the month for initiations and brotherly 
and/or sisterly love. Once more the fresh- 
men beam over white, pink, red (roses) 
(carnations) and jeweled pins loaned by 
also-beaming big brothers (sisters) 

Agitation begins to have a portrait of Dr. 
Key painted to hang in the Administration 
Building. Exact location disputed, but idea 
agreed on as worthy of student contribu- 
tions. 

"Stop Thief" presented to a full-house — 
during Leap week. Both the play and the 
week great success, and coeds mildly suggest 
return engagement — of both!

The reviled but revered Dirt Dauber was 
laid to rest with appropriate ceremonies by 
the P&W, and from its ashes rose the milder 
Majordomo — after a brief pause for station 
identification. 

MARCH 

Rhymes and Bledsoe elected Miss Millsaps 
and Master Major in unannounced election. 
Other candidates. Swayze, Phifer, Ogden, M. 
Moore. Lancaster, Selman, Hudson. Van- 
diver, A. Smith. 

Millsaps Majors beat the Choctaws once 
again, this time to win the Dixie conference 
with bang-up basketball; Chunkin' Charlie 
is the uncrowned king of the campus. 

The debaters go somewhere or other and 
debate again; not that it's unusual. 

Spring tentatively approaches the campus, 
stays long enough to seem permanent, and 
retreats, leaving us to unpack the sweaters 
again. 

APRIL 

Spring hols and glee club trip. Teachers 
go to coast for conventions and no classes 
for many students. 

Glee club comes back proud of (1) Mr. 
King (2) Itself. Both justifiably. Drive the 
campus mad babbling about hara-kiri; Say- 
hey now. Miss Wisteria; Beta Lambda; that 
Beautiful Methodist church; dessert for 
breakfast ; Jack Ferris. 

History majors go into retirement cram- 
ming for comprehensives, joined shortly 
afterward by English majors, social science, 
and on and on. They live through them, to 
their own intense satisfaction and the dis- 
gust of underclass friends who got sick and 
tired of hearing them beef about it. Sara 
Buie passed. So did Dolores Dye. 

Sigma Lambda in general and Ann Stone 
in particular put on the Varsity Show. 
Another full house. Show-stealers: Sam 
Schick as Sanders; Dick Dorman's songs — 
especially "Tomorrow's Tears." 

Campus beautiful to the eye of the be- 
holder, what with green trees, flowers, what- 
not. Too bad so many of the flowers were 
onion grass. 

Founders Day; Dr. Huntley speaking; 
seniors optimistically in caps and gowns. 

Usual spring crop of trat picnics with the 
Y Retreat setting the pace. Remember that 
full moon? 

High school day causes usual hub-bub 
with cute, scared, cock-sure, bewildered, 
amazed, sophisticated (multiple-choice) 
seniors from Mississippi's choicest high 
schools being hopefully squired around by 
the cream of Millsaps.

sponsors. Fond and proud papas dish out 
dough for initiation fees and tell the home 
town society editor what Junior's doing at 
Millsaps — all by himself! 

Term papers, book reports. Mrs. Clark dis- 
tracted because fine Christian young men 
and women just iciJl steal liooks. when a 
grade hangs in the balance! But the books 
one by one come in. The book reports are 
painfully constructed from quotations, opin- 
ions, and just plain bull. The term papers 
are pieced together at 2 o'clock the night 
before they're due. And so . . . we come 
... to 

EXAMS 

No snow this time to distract us. But 
almost as bad are the C-average seniors, 
smug about exemptions, who read the funny 
papers at the library; whisper loudly to each 
other "Let's go to the Grill"; and otherwise 
prove obnoxious. We hate them. 

Then they look solemn. And they learn 
the words to "Alma Mater." And they press 
the million wrinkles from their black gowns. 
And they graduate. And they leave. And we 
love them.
