The well rounded College is far more than a log with 
a professor on one end and a student on the other. 
Millsaps College strives to improve the intellect and 
personality of its students, and, in this respect, the 
campus life and customs of its students contribute 
more to Millsaps than any other factor. It is only 
fitting, then, that your 19^' Bobashela pictures a 
cross section of life at Millsaps.

Students seldom find a member of the faculty who 
can command their admiration, inspire their loyalty, 
and hold their friendship. Such a person, however, 
is Mr. Alvin J. King. As director of the Millsaps 
Singers he has brought home many honors to the 
college, and as "Pop" King he has been a friend and 
counselor to everyone who works with him. In 
recognition of Mr. King's attainments, and because we 
love him, we are proud to dedicate this book to him.

Dr. Wharton, 

Virginia McKeown, 

Mary Emma Ervin 

and Dr. Moore 

discuss Founder's 

Day before the 

Major's tomb. 




As representative of the spirit behind the traditions of Millsaps as the 
Memorial Tomb of its founder, is the active Board of Trustees. By their 
wisdom and foresight they have guided the college ever in the paths of 
progress, and in the pursuit of Major Millsaps' ideal for the school as a source 
of preparation for effective and unselfish service in business and in life, they 
have gained for it a reputation of a liberal arts college of real cultural and 
educational values. Therefore, it is to these men and to the spirit which 
they represent that we dedicate this page. 



11 




The cheerful smile of Dr. 
Smith is a familiar sight to the 
students of Millsaps, each of 
whom the president knows 
by first name, and is indicative 
of the spirit in which he faces 
them across the presidential 
desk. 



Oar P n 



[ I I 



Students point with pride to the tangible evidences of progress at Mill- 
saps under the present administration. They boast of new and improved 
buildings, increased educational facilities, added courses and new professors, 
and, too, a beautified campus. But of more importance to them is a marked 
increase in the feeling of loyalty and of responsibility to the Alma Mater, 
which could have had no other source than in the inspiration of its President, 
Dr. M. L. Smith. Fired by the example of his practical enthusiasm con- 
cerning the possibilities of Millsaps, students have found college under him 
an experience in living and learning which they will long remember and 
appreciate. 



12 



Already having gained at Millsaps a 
reputation as an outstanding scholar and a 
better than average professor, Dr. William E. 
Riecken, in his two years as Dean, has shovi/n 
himself equally as capable in the executive 
field. Because of his industry, sincerity, and 
geniality, he has won the respect and coopera- 
tion of students in his capacity as Dean, and 
their admiration and friendship as a person. 



A paragon of the spirit of interest and 
sympathy which should belong to a Dean of 
Women, Mrs. Mary B. Stone has done more 
to bring about easy and friendly relations 
between students and faculty than any other 
one personality at Millsaps. Whether a co-ed 
enters her office to check up on cuts, discuss 
a question of interest to the college, confess 
a problem, or just to chat, she is always sure 
of attentive interest and sound advice from 
this keen observer of campus life and its 
problems.

The past few years have witnessed 
radical changes in the appearance of the 
Millsaps campus. The Buie Gymnasium 
and Whitworth Hall are comparatively 
recent structures, while walks, drives, and 
shrubbery have sprung up everywhere. 
These improvements have made Millsaps a 
show place in Jackson and a bright spot in 
the entire South.

The Student Executive Board, which is the 
formal student governing body, accomplished this 
year the adoption of a much needed student calendar 
and also a revision of the student body constitution. 



Under the capable leadership of Student Body Presi- 
dent Bo Mutry, these and other achievements show 
this year's Board to be the most active in many a 
year.

Organized only a year ago as an off-spring of the Woman's Association, 
this group easily finds opportunities to take a hand in almost everything that 
comes up on the campus. Its sage counsel is often sought — the change in 
Saturday night co-ed hours from eleven to twelve, and the extra privileges 
for seniors witness its effectiveness. Meeting monthly with a membership 
made up of representatives from the different sororities and women's organ- 
izations, they use their feminine wiles to persuade President, Dean, and 
general public to recognize the co-eds' campus rights,

influence student

around some vital 
issue than any other 
one factor on the 
campus. One of the 
most popular of stu-

This year the business staff 
has completed a survey, begun 
last year, showing how much 
Millsaps students spend in 
Jackson and what items they 
buy. In their spare moments 
they sell ads, distribute papers 
to the students, and mail 
copies to subscribers. 



BIG SHOTS 

Worthy of special mention, 
in addition to Editor Robertson 
and Business Manager Burwell, 
are Josephine Timberlake and 
Martha Mansfield, editor and 
business manager of the Co-Ed 
Edition; and Charline Harris,

In spite of numerous set-backs, such as 
the Glee Club trip, comprehensives, and a 
very busy staff, the 1941 Bobashela has finally 
managed to come from the press. Indispens- 
able to the editor were Helen Ricks, who was 
always willing to manage everything; snap- 
shot artists Birdsong, Fox, and Ward; and 
John Rundle, who wrote the caustic com- 
ments. Mims Wright of Jackson is respon- 
sible for many of the pictures included.

This year's business staff operated under 
a different set-up to those in the past. 
Business Manager Clark and his staff have 
succeeded well in giving the student body a 
larger book and in keeping the editor satisfied. 
Especially helpful in this department were 
Rice Wilson, Eva Decell, and Mary Stone, who 
struck fear into the heart of every club treas-

DIRECTOR 

Mr. Alvin J. King, known simply 
as "Pop" to all his students, has made 
the Millsaps Singers nationally known. 
Although he divides his time between 
the college and the Jackson High 
Schools, his greatest loyalty lies with 
Millsaps, and in the last six years he 
has carried the Singers through Missis- 
sippi and surrounding states on annual 
"good will tours". 




MR. ALVIN J. KING 



Again this year the student body minus 
forty-four has been forced to listen to that 
forty-four's tales of "mountainous Ken- 
tucky roads, Highbee's in Cleveland, and 
SNOW in Wooster", for the high point of 
the Singer's year was another "good will" 
tour which extended through Alabama, 
Tennessee, Kentucky, and Ohio. After a 
brief period of anxiety over cuts, this 
excited group of Singers boarded Joe Grey- 
hound on March 24, to spend two 
whole weeks singing, exaggerating southern 
drawls, and nick-naming all the Joes and 
Josies. Chief stops were Birmingham, 
Cleveland, Pop King's home town, Smith- 
ville, Ohio, the Cincinnati Conservatory of 
Music, Louisville, and Chaperone Aunt 



Josie Stone's home town, Fayetteville, Ten- 
nessee. Joe Driver Marsh safely returned 
the Singers, garrulous and happy, on 
April 4. 

Pre-trip activities of the Singers 
included presentation of Handel's "The 
Messiah" at Christmas and numerous Sun- 
day trips to Mississippi towns, as well as 
a number of local concerts. On May 20, 
the club sponsored the concert of Andrew 
Gainey, a former member of the Singers 
who has gained recognition as a concert 
baritone On June 1 , the Singers present- 
ed their final program of the year, a Spring 
Festival, on the steps of Sullivan-Harrell 
Hall.

Dramatics at Millsaps have blossomed 
forth this year as never before. Under the 
direction of Dr. M. C. White the club has 
presented a variety of one act plays and one 
full length play, Death Takes A Holiday. The 
Players have acquired this year a good deal of 
much-needed backstage equipment which, 
along with a large amount of new talent, has 
done much to make this year's presentations 
far superior to those of the past. Death Takes 
A Holiday marks a new high in Millsaps pro- 
ductions. In this play. Dr. White, through 
the cast and scenery, managed to achieve a 
tremendous effect which made the audience 
forget it was watching amateurs. Death was 
enthusiastically received by the student body 
and outsiders alike and has done much to 
focus the attention of Jackson play-goers on 
the Millsaps Players. Among the one act 
plays given this year were Pink and Patches, 
The Sound and the Fury, The Man in the 
Bowler Hat, His First Date, The Black Valise, 
and The Valiant.

Alpha Psi Omega is the pow- 
er behind Millsaps' program of 
dramatics. Membership is 

composed of those who have 
shown their ability in acting, 
makeup, stage or business man- 
aging, property collecting, and 
the like. Considering the num- 
ber of students who participate 
in dramatics, its membership of 
eighteen is rather conservative. 
Officers this year were Mary 
Stone, president; Joe Brooks, 
vice-president; and Nelson Nail, 
secretary. The members meet, 
when there is a quorum, to dis- 
cuss the problems facing the 
club and to initiate newcomers.

The title of Master Major or Miss Millsaps is the highest honor which 
a Millsaps student can receive. Each represents the student who is most 
outstanding in the widest field of activity. Traditionally won by seniors, 
these positions were voted this year, and rightly so, to Charles Murry and 
Elizabeth Campbell.

PRESIDENT 

Joel McDavid, one of the 
most popular of Millsaps' 
preachers, has done a full 
year's work persuading the 
Class of '41 to leave a memo- 
rial — the new columns at the 
North State entrance bespeak 
his efforts. The towering 
young man from Alabama is 
also president of the Christian 
Council, a power in ODK and 
the Y Cabinet. 




OFFICERS 

Succeeding himself as vice-president of the Class of '41 is Charlie 
Ward, Millsaps' star athlete. Few (including, especially, the neighboring 
Choctaws) who have seen Chunkin' Charlie's agile performance on the 
basketball court, the gridiron, or the baseball diamond will ever forget him. 

Another repeat, we find Maxine Young of Terry again secretary of her 
class. Mack mothers Millsaps M-Men — is pretty good at tennis, herself. 
She'll teach school next year — maybe.

Representative of the feeling of the Senior Class are Nat Rogers, Jim 
Wroten, and Roy Clark. As campus leaders they have made their mark in 
college activities and are concerned chiefly with what will come after they 
regretfully lay aside cap and gown.

PRESIDENT 

By now a big-time politician 
Willie Branch is still president 
of his class. PiKA'S outstand- 
ing Founder's Hall representa- 
tive, Willie plays football and 
basketball, majors in Physics, 
and was elected vice-president 
of the student body for '41- 
'42. Someday, probably, he 
will coach. 




OFFICERS 

Sidney Craves, better known through the Finger of Scorn (he didn't 
miss a week) as "Drip" will soon seriously embark on the career of medical 
student. He definitely makes himself heard in dramatics, P&W, AED, Y 
Cabinet, and around the campus. An outstanding talent seems to be an 
ability to become involved in tangled romances. 

Rounding out this trio of Junior politicians is Mary Stone, Queen of 
Faculty Row. Mary is well known as a Singer, Rambler, French student, 
and adopted member of the New Dormitory gang. She'll wield the gavel 
next year for Chi Omega.

Belonging to the most active class on the campus, Graham and Evaline, 
Sam and Helen typify that restless Junior Spirit — the desire to be always 
doing. Millsaps is the center of their lives — they have taken over campus 
affairs, but are not yet burdened with the thought of life after college.

PRESIDENT 

Harwell Dabbs, president of 
the Sophomore Class, goes 
native each summer in Tupelo, 
where, as bronzed life-guard, 
he exhibits his Tarzan - like 
physique in the swimming 
pool. Regardless of the fact 
that he's a studious pre-med, 
Harwell is also Millsaps' most 
triumphant orator and all- 
'round activity man. 




OFFICERS 

Vice-President Davis Christmas, in his second year as class officer, is 
still one of Millsaps' most likable gridiron heroes. Well known to all the 
cafeteria diners, this lad from 'Vicksburg is a serious Chemistry student — 
and a good one. 

Secretary Bess Green of Jackson spends most of her time patiently 
listening to her class president. She enjoys swimming (at least the sun- 
bathing) and badminton, and idealistically wants to do some type of social 
work. 



66 



et 



ass 



Mary Lee, Sara, and Ruth have already grown rich in Millsaps spirit — 
a genuine love of the college and its campus. Having at least begun to 
"settle down," the Sophomores are probably the best and most serious 
students.

PRESIDENT 

Buddy Wofford, president 
of the Freshman Class, is liv- 
ing up to the example set by 
his brother Bill, who was quite 
a politician in his own right at 
Millsaps. Buddy is a shining 
light in the Singers and also 
with the co-eds. His talents 
have been found indispensable 
to the Millsaps orchestra and 
to the Varsity Show. 




OFFICERS 

Walter Ridgway, who served this year both as vice-president of the 
Freshman Class and as vice-president of the KA pledges, is also an enthusi- 
astic, if small, member of the Singers and the Pre-Med Club. He's profi- 
cient, too, in tennis and ping-pong, and "likes the feeling among the stu- 
dents here." 

Says Jean Morris of the raven tresses, "I just don't have time for hobbies 
— guess I'm most interested in eating." (Slow, Jean, don't forget the 
Pikes.) Denying that she's a play-girl, she points out that her ambition is 
vaguely connected with medicine, her favorite subject — Zoology. 



72 



et 



ass 



In many ways college is still another lark to the freshmen, but they 
are beginning to realize just what Millsaps means, and to catch the spirit. 
This, their most eventful year, is spent in learning to know the people with 
whom their next three years will be lived and the campus whereon they will 
be centered.

Serving in the capacities of Director of Athletics at Millsaps and coach 
of football and basketball, Henry L. "Hook" Stone has completed two highly 
successful years in senior college athletics. Following the resignation of 
former Coach B. 0. Van Hook as Athletic Director, Coach Stone assumed 
this responsibility and has molded a good football team and has helped to 
guide the Major Five to another Dixie Conference championship. Success 
during the past two years has been Coach Stone's because of his iron rule 
practice session discipline and because he has taken an active interest in the 
players themselves. 

Well liked, efficient, and valuable co-worker on the athletic staff has 
been Coach Bernie Ward. Also in his second year at Millsaps, Coach Ward 
has played a vital part in building this year's superb basketball squad. Base- 
ball was also under his supervision. 

Coach Melvin Richardson made a successful football assistant and was 
also coach of track.

THE FOOTBALL TEAM AS A UNIT 



[ I 1 1 n [ I 



The 1940 grid season, despite appearances on paper to the contrary, 
was one of the most successful in recent years. In his second year at Mill- 
saps Coach Hook Stone led his Major eleven through a season which yielded 
four wins, four losses and one tie. 

Although there were times when the Majors played mediocre football, 
at their best they were a great eleven. Top performance of the year came 
when the Millsaps eleven turned in a brilliant 14-7 victory over a surprised 
Mississippi Southern squad. 





^m^A: 



A greatly increased enthusi- 
asm in this year's student body 
was due largely to the work 
done by the cheerleaders. Un- 
der the guidance of Head 
Cheerleader Judge Graham 
Brady, this group, consisting of 
Beverley Dickerson, Maxine 
Young, Eleanor Castle, Marion 
McCough, and Fred Tatum 
strove diligently to work the 
student body into a frenzy.

Many individual members of the 
team deserve special mention for out- 
standing service during the 1940 sea- 
son; however, lack of space permits 
the selection of only a few. Undoubt- 
edly the most outstanding linesman 
under Hook Stone's tutelage was Cap- 
tain Cranvil Hamby. Evidence of 
his ability was his selection for his 
second straight year as a member of 
the mythical All-Dixie Eleven. Con- 
sistent both on offence and defense 
was newcomer Robert West, towering 
tackle on the Major eleven, with 
Upton and Jay Smith doing some able 
assisting at their respective positions 
of guard and tackle. In the backfield 



Columbia's Ed Matulich was the sea- 
son's best with his elusive style of 
broken field running. Top honors in 
yardage gained went to fullback Henry 
Steinriede. Ed Cillum and Mayo Pitt- 
man deserve special mention for bril- 
liant ball carrying. 

In what proved to be the high point 
of the football season for the Millsaps 
eleven, the Majors turned back a 
highly-touted Mississippi Southern 
team by a 14-7 score. Battling all 
the way the local gridsters played 
superior ball with Steinriede, Matulich, 
Hamby, Upton, and West leading the 
way. Enthusiasm was high as old 
graduates and students enjoyed a bitter 
struggle between the two rivals.

The Majors started strong in 1940. 
After upsetting Louisiana College 14-0 
they traveled to Delta State and 
returned with an easy 12-0 triumph. 

Before a capacity crowd at Alumni 
field the following week the Majors 
routed a weak Hendrix College eleven 
by the score of 33-7. Coach Stone 
substituted freely and honors for the 
evening were evenly distributed. 

In their fourth start of the year the 
Stonemen battled the strong S. L. I. 
aggregation to a 0-0 deadlock. The 
Majors displayed an impenetrable 
defense against a heavier eleven and 
an offense that fell just short of scor- 
ing several times. 



Striking early in the first quarter 
the Mississippi College Choctaws con- 
tinued blitz tactics throughout the 
game to push over a surprising 27-0 
win over the bewildered Majors in 
this annual grudge battle. Despite 
occasional bursts of power the Majors 
never reached the proficiency which 
they had displayed in former games 
and of which they were capable. Over 
a thousand Major backers followed the 
team to Clinton where the game was 
played. 

On the rebound from the Choctaw 
disaster the Majors met and fell before 
an inferior Spring Hill eleven. Final 
score was 1 7-0.

During the huddle the team 
decides upon tactics, both of 
offense and defense. It is 
from this ail-important pow- 
wow that games are won and 
heroes are made. Here we see 
the first string in huddle. 



THE FIRST TEAM CONFERS. 



The usually stalwart Major defense 
was totally ineffective as Millsaps fans 
saw the football season reach its low- 
est ebb. 

Slated to go down in overwhelming 
defeat before the Southeastern Con- 



ference giant, Mississippi State, the 
Majors came back in surprising style 
to lose 46-13 after leading the Bull- 
dogs at the half. The play of Ward, 
Matulich, and Jay Smith was outstand- 
ing in behalf of the Millsaps cause. 



BAKER LENDS A HELPING HAND. 



In the dressing room the 
men help each other into their 
togs, plan ahead for the game 
to come, or rehash the game 
which has just been played. 
During the strenuous practice 
season the dressing room be- 
comes a second dormitory to 
our gridiron heroes.

These shots of the Howard- 
Millsaps game show the Majors 
striving desperately to over- 
come a lead which was taken 
early in the game. This was 
the only afternoon game of the 
year played at home. 



'^tP* J^ |f 



Climax of the season came when 
the Stonemen met the Howard College 
gridsters in the only day game of the 
year at Alumni field. A second half 
rally in which they displayed mid-sea- 
son form came too late to overcome 



an early lead gained by the visitors in 
the first half and the Major eleven 
fell before an alert Alabama squad by 
a 28-14 score. Ed Gillum and Pap 
Hamby turned in good performances 
during the afternoon.

COACHES 

Bernle Ward, Coach of the 
Dixie Conference Champions, 
talks things over with Athletic 
Director Stone. 



n [ I i n I 



Annexing the Dixie Conference 
championship for the second year in 
succession, the 1941 Millsaps Basket- 
ball Team closely approached the sta- 
tus of athletic perfection. 

Loyal Millsaps supporters were wor- 
ried when former coach of basketball 
B. O. Van Hook gave up athletics, but 



at the season's end they had nothing 
but praise for the work of new head 
coach Bernie Ward. 

With a brilliant record of twenty- 
three wins and only four losses the 
Major cagers surpassed all former rec- 
ords and were undeniably the class of 
the Dixie Conference.

A hotly contested series of games 
with Mississippi College yielded two 
wins for each school with the Majors 
drawing final blood when they crushed 
their ancient rivals in a Dixie Confer- 
ence semi-final thriller. 

Prowess of the Major cagers is evi- 
denced by their clean sweep of the 
Dixie Tournament. Fans who saw 
the Millsaps team down Spring Hill, 
Chattanooga, Mississippi College, and 
Loyola, all in short order, were agreed 
that it deserved its place in basket- 
ball's hall of fame. 

Boasting two near-professional quin- 
tets of veterans and skilled newcom- 
ers, the Majors played spectacular as 
well as steady basketball. Spectators 
were kept on edge as the Millsaps five 
handled the ball with dazzling skill or 



changed at will from the old slow 
break style to a more rapid brand of 
basketball. 

Returning from last year's cham- 
pionship team were Charlie Ward, 
Clifton Jones, Oscar Tynes, Willie 
Branch, Willie Carter, Milan Richard- 
son, and Joe Willie Miles. New men 
who aided the Major cause this year 
were Jay Smith, Charles Kemmitzer, 
and Buddy Carr. 

Individual honors went to rangy 
Charlie Ward and sharpshooting Clif- 
ton Jones when they were placed on 
the All Dixie Conference five. Buddy 
Carr and Jay Smith were always popu- 
lar with the fans for their daring 
attacks, and Willie Branch at his best 
played spectacular ball.

Results of the 1941 track season are not complete, but progress early 
in the season has been encouraging. 

Meets have been scheduled with Mississippi College, Louisiana Tech 
and other neighboring colleges and competition throughout the season will 
be difficult. 

The Major thin dads were blessed with the return of numbers of 
veterans from last year's squad, while talented transfers complete a for- 
midable roster. Outstanding in high hurdles is Ford (Scoop) Canterbury 
whose speed and form promise to win many firsts for the Majors. „Gordon 
Worthington, four year veteran, has repeatedly proved his ability as a jumper 
and is expected to star again this year. Handling low hurdles and the 
dashes will be veteran Joe Willie Miles and a new comer, Bill Fullilove. 

Coach Bernie Ward has the material on hand to mould one of the 
strongest Major thin clad aggregations in recent years.

Behind the expert pitching of "Chunkin" Charlie Ward, ably assisted 
by Brandon Bell and Wendell Hart, and the consistent hitting of Milan Rich- 
ardson, Robert Shell and Ed Matulich the Millsaps Baseball Team battled its 
way through a turbulent but successful season. 

In the won-iost column the Majors broke even with six victories and 
six defeats. Games with such strong teams as Ole Miss, Spring Hill and 
Mississippi College were typical of the competition which the Majors faced 
this year. In a three game series with the Mississippi College nine the Majors 
took two and dropped one hard fought contest. 

Coach Ward will have most of his 1941 squad back next year to build 
what promises to be the best Major Baseball team in years.

Under the tutelage of Dr. M. C. White the 1941 Tennis 
team, considering handicaps, has done well. 

As we go to press matches are still to be played and 
prospects for a successful completion of the season are good. 

Crippled by the loss of Johnny Miller, dynamic little 
star of last year's squad, the Major Netters have taken one 
of the three matches played so far, dropping two to stronger 
squads.

MISS FRANCES DECELL 




Tennis sharks. 



DIRECTOR 

Miss Frances Decell, a new- 
comer to the Millsaps faculty, has 
been one of its most active mem- 
bers. The position of Women's 
Athletic Director is a new one at 
the college, and under Miss Decell 
the program has expanded tre- 
mendously. Her friendly person- 
ality has endeared her to faculty 
and students alike, and she has 
made the college justly proud of 
Its women's physical training 
department. 



I I 



Under the guiding hand of Miss Frances Decell the 
women's athletic department has made great progress. 
In one short year she has begun a real program of g'ym- 
nasium work, such as tumbling and dancing, to satisfy 
the college requirements in physical training. Outdoor 
sports are also an integral part of the program. Most 
popular sports with the co-eds are riding, tennis, golf, 
swimming, and archery. This year a comprehensive 
program of girl's intra-mural athletics has been included. 
Intra-murals this year have been popular and all-inclus- 
ive and have drawn their share of the spectators along 
with football and basketball. The goal of athletically- 
minded co-eds is the Majorette Club.

The task of choosing Millsaps' most 
beautiful co-eds is always a difficult 
one. This year Milton Caniff, a young 
American artist of proven talent and 
promising future, well known to college 
students as the creator of such beauties 
as the Dragon Lady, Burma, and Norman- 
die Drake, kindly agreed to lend a critical 
eye to Millsaps pulchritude. The pic- 



tures of twenty beautiful girls chosen by 
the heads of all social groups on the 
campus were sent to him for his opinion. 
The results of his selection are as you 
find them in the following pages: Milli- 
cent Lampe, Most Beautiful; Gertrude 
Triplett, Tip Stuart, Faola Lowe, Una 
Caldwell, and Shirley Chichester in the 
order listed.

Since 1914 when Phi Zeta became 
Epsilon chapter of Phi Mu and the 
first national sorority at Millsaps, 
thing's have rolled smoothly along, 
at least until the recent succession 
of red-heads came to clash with the 
pink carnations which les soeurs 
fideles hold sacred. The sorority 
looms important in politics and 
scholarship, proudly exhibits Nell's 
convertible, Corinne's Packard, and 
a monopoly on "Miss Millsaps.'' 
Among les plus fideles des soeurs

Late in 1914 Kappa Deltas at 
Millsaps first donned the diamond 
shield and began passing- the word, 
"Your's in AOT." Since then they 
have mingled their green and white 
in various activities — dramatics, 
politics, and glee club in particular. 
With eleven sisters in the Singers 
this year, the chapter has considered 
making a good voice a prerequisite 
of membership. Athletically in- 
clined members are still conspicu- 
ously absent, though, — the record 
of no intramural cups standing in- 
tact. The lodge boasts of having 
the highest marriage percentage on

In 1926, after an anxious summer 
of petitioning, the local Pi Kappas 
were inducted by the Belhaven 
chapter (they had sororities then) 
into the national mysteries of Beta 
Sigma Omicron. From then on out, 
the Beta Sigs have made their place 
among the sorority girls at Mill- 
saps, excelling particularly in for- 
ensics, scholarship, and athletics. 
The chapter keeps in the ruby and 
pink with Currie's limousine and a 
monopoly on intramural cups. 
Wrinkles in the chapter brow are: 
Freshmen Morson and Applewhite, 
eternal agitators, and Yankee Neu, 
whose brogue is THAT thick. And 
the Grecian lamp shines brightly 
on: Journalist Peeler, Debater God- 
bold, and Athletes Beasley and 
Rush.

Back about 1934 the Tri Chis 
swapped their X's for one ''X and a 
horseshoe" to bring the number of 
national sororities on the campus 
to the sum total of four. Chief 
inspiration of campus wise-cracks 
this year has been the four score or 
so names on the chapter roll, but the 
Chi O's can take it (along with fra- 
ternity pins, which number six). 
Three convertibles, three Sigma 
Lambdas, and a much exploited pull 
with the profs are counted to their 
credit. Well known also are the pro- 
tracted initiations (they enjoy a 
week of it), their inability to win an 
election, innumerable Chi Omega 
songs (plus a piano), and Beverley's 
pin.

The Sons of the South pride them- 
selves on being "aristocrats" both 
of Dixie and of Millsaps, where they 
are the oldest chapter on the 
campus. Since 1893 Millsaps K.A.'s 
have worshipped at the shrine of 
Lee and the Confederacy, worn the 
crimson rose, played billiards in 
their Game Room, and immersed 
themselves in campus politics. This 
year, with the help of the alumni, 
the frateres have taken a new inter- 
est in southern womanhood and dis- 
tributed pins to some half dozen 
fair examples on the campus, sev- 
eral elsewhere. Leisurely led by 
"Ho-Hum" Rogers, Lauderdale, and 
Rundle the Gentlemen held a state 
convention, kept the south end of 
the campus noisy, and surprised 
themselves by winning one intra- 
mural cup.

Since 1895 the star and cresent 
have illumined the south corner of 
the campus and shone over barn 
dances, baseball diamonds, and 
gridirons. Having been called 
everything from playboys to Grill- 
hounds, it remaind for this year's 
chapter to turn scholar and lack- 
adaisically polish off an index of 
1.68. Be wary of your idiosyncrasies 
when around the Sigs — they have 
the knack of beginning nicknames 
that stick, as witness "Hant" Eager, 
"Body" Hansen, "Truck" Watkins, 
"Politico" Harris, et al. Bragging 
(or confessing) the list among their 
number such campus characters as 
"Preacher" McCafferty, "Baldy" 
Burwell, "Killum" Kellum, Drs. 
Cavett and Martin, "Pressbox" 
Rabb, Gradyandpat, and athletes 
Richardson and Samuels.

Lucky in politics, unlucky in love 
— these Shield and Diamonders are 
the only fraternity on the campus 
which can boast a pinning score of 
for the year. The Pikes point with 
pride to a chapter of individuals, 
ranging from Calvin and Cudge to 
David Donald and Graham McFar- 
lane. Chief news of the year was the 
complete annexation of the Wright 
family — including Olga, who left 
the Millsaps brotherhood cold in 
favor of a member of the State tribe. 
Life for the boys on Marshall Street 
is far from simple: The younger 
members follow the time-honored 
Pike tradition of trying to be B. M. 
0. C, build floats until five A. M., 
and generally worry the student 
body sick with their antics — while 
the Old Guard, composed of Clark, 
Murry, Painter, Wilson, and White 
sit around the chapter house (still 
new) in glorified bull sessions con- 
cerning roseate dreams of the past 
and refuse to worry about the 
future.

1940-41 for the boys on Living- 
stone Street saw the rise of Sam 
Schiek to challenge the reputation 
of older brother Brooks as a charac- 
ter actor, the continued popularity 
of Ed Dawkins and guitar at 
Lambda Chi picnics, and the em- 
ergence of Alan Holmes as an indis- 
pensable adjunct to the debate 
club. Kolb, Holmes, and Addison 
functioned as a Brain Trust— Kolb, 
surprisingly enough, revealing hid- 
den talents as a jitterbug. Lambda 
Chis, in general, concern themselves 
little with the co-eds, concentrate 
their efforts on intramural contests 
with enviable results.

Pi circle of Omicron Delta Kappa has, since

dents of Millsaps who measured up to the highest 
standards of leadership land could pass the club). 
Members are honored because of prominence in 
such activities as forensics, publications, athletics, 
scholarship, and club work. One of the strongest 
of national honoraries, ODK marks its brothers for 
recognition wherever they go. 



At their monthly meetings these Big Shots 
discuss ways and means of improving Millsaps, 
agree upon some projects which they sponsor with 
the success characteristic of their individual activi- 
ties. The active circle includes five faculty 
members, and, each year, one alumnus member.

With the Green Room as a sort of unofficial 
meeting place these B.W.O.C. gather each month 
with an eye to the past, present, and future of 
Millsaps women. __Having affiliation with Mortar 
Board as an annual project secondary only to the 
Varsity Show, Sig L's press onward toward the 
prize — whatever it may be. 

Seven members grace the ranks of this auspi- 
cious group — among whom are Shirley Chichester, 
who wields a feeble gavel at the head of the table; 
Secretary Khayat, who cries periodically for lamps 
for Galloway parlor; Helen Ricks, who enthusias- 
tically dreams up wonderful things for Sigma 



Lambda to do, while Mary Alyce Moore firmly 
states that there is not one available date on 
the student calendar for the next two years, and 
Martha Gerald, who impatiently urges a revision 
of the point system. In the midst of Betty 
Larsen's discussion of the latest act for the Varsity 
Show, the climax comes when Lib Campbell, if 
present, calmly rises and announces, "I've just 
got to get home." 

Faculty members Stone, Cobb, and Craig 
provide steadying hands, cool heads, and the wis- 
dom of experience.

Sincere young ladies bent on planning well 

a year's Y-program are these — though, of course, 

a position on the cabinet does give points for 
Sigma Lambda. 



It, too, has a hand in the spring Retreat 
which, especially if there is to be a moon, draws 
almost the whole of the college crowd. 

Gayle, when and if she can shake off Eugene, 
presides and advises at the meetings.

Millsaps' favorite sons and daughters — and 
rightly so, one becomes convinced — are her debat- 
ers and orators, who time after time have brought 
home to Alma Mater those gleaming cups and 
medals. Each year the most silver-tounged of 

these argumentative champions are gathered into 
Pi Kappa Delta, a national forensic fraternity 
boasting 148 chapters. 



In December the Millsaps Debate Tour- 
nament was sponsored by the local chapter. 
Throughout Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, and 
Mississippi the platforms have resounded with 
the cases of these fluent public speakers, who 
climaxed their season by arguing their way into 
the Mississippi championship at the State Tourna- 
ment.

Mississippi Alpha of Alpha Epsilon Delta, 
national pre-medical fraternity, includes the most 
promising doctors-to-be in a school well known 
for its science department. The chapter this year 
helped in giving physical examinations to most of 
the students, began a drive for a college infirmary, 
made trips to Sanatorium and to Whitfield, and 
held open forum for all interested students. 



The Pre-Medical Club, sponsored by AED, 
includes all pre-medical students at Millsaps. At 
its bi-weekly meetings the club hears outstanding 
physicians of Jackson and the surrounding terri- 
tory and presents student programs by its mem- 
bers. Each year a select few of the club members 
find their way into Alpha Epsilon Delta.

Membership in Kit Kat, so it is claimed, is 
the greatest distinction which can come to creative 
writers and students of literature at Milisaps. The 
oldest honorary on the campus. Kit Kat was for 
years affiliated with a national literary organiza- 
tion, but decided of late that its own prestige is 
sufficient and went local. 



These literati meet, theoretically, once a 
month (in reality, whenever the mood strikes 
them) in a glorified bull-session where they eat 
heartily, boast of all they've read, and present 
original masterpieces to the club for critical demo- 
lition. Some day, come the millenium, a more 
aspiring member of the group will publish a best- 
seller, but there is small possibility even then that 
his Kit Kat brothers will like it.

Chi Delta, or "Bluestockings" as they are 
more informally called, claims to be a local organ- 
ization of literary minded young ladies. At their 
two or three "monthly" meetings they simper over 
tea and cookies — present original stories and 
poems, tending usually toward sentimentality. 



Unlike their Kit Kat brothers, Chi Deltas 
gush effusedly over each other's creations — 
regard all their sisters as "very, very talented." 
From tap-day appearances, female literary genius 
abounds at Millsaps — the best of it swarms into 
Chi Delta.

For its membership Delta Kappa Delta taps 
those students most actively interested in law and 
political science. The route into the fraternity 
lies usually through the Pre-Law Club which is 
now sponsored by the honorary organization. 
Founded locally in 1939, DKD is one of the few 
pre-law fraternities in existence. 



At their meetings these legally minded stu- 
dents prepare themselves for law school, receive 
advice from prominent attorneys, discuss matters 
of civic interest to the campus, and occasionally 
fraternize with the Choctaw law Club. Leading 
the club this year were Dickie Lauderdale, presi- 
dent for the second time, and Professor R. R. 
Haynes, sponsor.

If one looks slyly and sharply to his left he 
may discover this subversive group of laborites 
(that's Grady), history students, and Chi Omegas 
smugly professing inside knowledge of world 
affairs. 

At the bi-weekly meetings, this year under 
the Moore-Rogers dictatorship, they doze through 
statistic-crammed reports on the Argentine linseed 



crop, the rights of workers, and isolation policies; 
argue vociferously over the slept-through topics; 
patiently explain current events to the lady-mem- 
bers (who, it seems, never read the papers) ; and 
suffer wearily through a one-way stream of puns. 
The only conclusion ever reached concerns the 
program committee — that is, if anyone is unfor- 
tunately absent from the meeting.

Students of the classics who achieve a B

honorary fraternity. Eta Sigma Phi. President 
Carl Miller, who served this year as National 
Secretary, presided seriously over the meetings 



which were called, apparently, at the suggestion 
of the muses. The Creeks had a word for some 
things, but it would have taxed their vocabulary

The Ramblers inspecting the ages. 



Geology students automatically become Ram- 
blers — Corinne Ball taking the name literally and 
turning the Packard loose to ramble even so far 
as Memphis. Among the scientifically inclined 
pedestrians are: Fossil Queen Graham; Mary 
Stone, modern prototype of a shy Indian maid; 



and Sponsor Sullivan, who tries in vain to intro- 
duce a serious note. Picnics, all day jaunts in 
the school bus, and afternoon hikes (there still 
isn't a student who can outwalk Dr. Sullivan) 
help account for the large membership.

Patroness of the Beethoven Club, as 
well as instructor of piano, is Mrs. J. 
L. Roberts. Her methods of teaching 
have been praised by a number of 
leading artists, and the results 
obtained can be pointed to with pride 
by the college and the community. 
She works untiringly to fire her 
students with the ambition which she 
herself has for them, and it is largely 
due to her that the Beethoven Club 
looms so important this year. 



Meeting on Tuesday nights right after Clee Club, the Beethoven Club has served as a 
weekly serenade for Founder's occupants and a uniting group for musically inclined students. 
While the nucleus of the group is composed of those students studying piano and voice, non- 
participating members are urged to join, and, indeed, predominate numerically this year. Talent 
from the piano and voice departments combines to give programs calculated to present a bird's- 
eye view of the development of musical history. The Beethoven Club Guest Night this year 
presented a program of ensemble music to Jackson musicians. 

Although the membership is predominantly feminine, the club has for its president one of 
the few male members. The ambitious program chairman prepared this year a detailed year 
book which was seldom followed, but the programs were musically informative and pleasing to 
the ear.

A sort of junior conference in itself, the 
Ministerial League includes the future pastors of 
Southern Methodism, many of whom are already 
active in church work in and near Jackson. 



Led this year by president Waddell Roberts, 
the League has met weekly for the discussion of 
church problems, furnished teachers for Jackson 
Sunday Schools, and kept a close check on campus 
affairs.

Seasiey, 



If you've been agitating for more girl's sports 
on the campus and for something to be done 
about intra-murals, the Majorette Club is your 
answer. Under the guidance of Miss Frances 
Decell this comparatively recent organization has 
already proved its worth. A week-end camping 
trip, the stunt night you applauded so enthusi- 
astically, and the intra-murals you attended 



(people really did go, for the first time in the 
history of the college) were all projects sponsored 
by these athletically inclined young ladies. 

Under the leadership of Hettie Faye Beasley, 
this group, composed of sorority and Empyrean 
representatives, has already formulated a compli- 
cated point system whereby those interested in 
sports may be considered for membership.

membership in the "M" Club, one of Millsaps' 
strongest honorary organizations. Ably led this 
year by Little Rich I Milan Richardson, to put it 
formally), the club concerned itself with problems 
of athletics and of school spirit; celebrated Spring 
with its annual picnic; held a two day initiation, 



the horrors of which are mentioned only in whis- 
pers. 

One of the favorite hangouts on the campus 
for Founder's Hall lettermen is the "M" Club 
Room, conveniently located near the Grill. Here, 
among the shining trophies of tournament and 
gridiron, the athletics read, study, snooze, and 
shoot the bull.

FINGERS of DESTINY 

By JOHN RUNDLE 

Tom to the contrary notwithstand- 
ing, the first column to be read in each 
week's "Purple and White" is, almost 
invariably, the much curst, awe inspir- 
ing "Finger of Scorn." Differing from 
the typical gossip column, the "Finger" 
presents a more intimate view of 
campus affairs than is to be found in 
either the news stories of the "P&W" 
or the snapshot section of this year- 
book — a view that is of more genuine 
interest to the student body, more 
enlightening as to its membership. 

Believing that it forms an accurate 
calendar of Life at Millsaps — 1 940-41 , 
we present for the refreshment of 
your memories selected excerpts from 
the "Finger of Scorn." Five — ten — 
fifteen years from now these should 
be even more interesting — divorce 
courts may find them useful. 



SEPTEMBER — school opens — 
amidst the confusion of Rush Week a 
ghostly figure is dimly seen to rise 
from the still smoldering ashes of the 
late-lamented Dirt Dauber. Or per- 
haps he was never seen at all, for, 
mysteriously, he has remained invisible 
— invisible except for one long, black, 
inky finger that is always pointing. 
Look! It's pointing now! 

"Well, well, well, Billy Ross has put 
up a staunch protest against the Ruoff 
girl calling her other two admirers 
Clabee and Edbee. Says Billy. 'She'll 
put a stop to that or else call me 
Bilbee." 

" — with Olga's treasure-nec, the 
Pious Pikes' (almost unpious for once) 
Roof party (dancing 'n' all!), recep- 
tions, deceptions, elections, and so 
on — the seat of the scornful has not 
been empty."

OCTOBER — the football season is 
underway, and oh that harvest moon! 

"The finger of scorn is pointed 
directly at Ed Matulich for causing 
such heart-aches to two Chi Omegas 
in his Spanish class. Even from my 
perch at the ball game Friday night 
(Millsaps 33-Hendrix 7!) I could hear 
them squeal happily every time Ed's 
name came over the loud speaker — 
but Ed will hear to nothing more than 
two beautiful friendships." 

"Congratulations, Dora Frances, for 
hooking him at last. Guess Boyd will 
have to find somebody else's girl to 
look after now." 

"All conventional triangles are 
worthy of scorn, and this Clark- 
McCafferty-Watkins case is as con- 
ventional as a dime-store novel." 

And at last, the Fair comes to 
town ! — 

"Grady Powers took a different girl 
to the fair every night — and a few of 
them are alive to tell the tale." 

"Freshman Harold Stevens and Jean 
'Ace of Spades' Morris rode thirteen 
times on the rocket at the fair — and 
if you've ever ridden on the rocket, 
you'll know why." 

And then the Y Banquet — • 

"The Finger is pointed scornfully 
at the whole male portion of the stu- 
dent body for allowing Squinchy 
Moore to go to the Y Banquet unes- 
corted, save for satellite Sweet." 

"The Pikes were sporting 'name' 
date — Waring with Morris; Navarro 
with Porter; Barlow with Miller; Doss 
with 'Oh, where is Nat' Ricks." 

"Fie on Mary Stone for wanting to 
get married in the first place, and in 
the second place, for not wanting to 
marry Birdsong." 

"A lowly finger at Mushmouth 
Graves for letting Freshman Robinson 
beat his time on Park Avenue."

to study for nine weeks' tests." There 
was a little studying done this year. 

"Latest chauffeur for Cupid is 
Prof. Haynes, who just smiles and 
chuckles sheepishly when you ask him 
what happened when Sarah Weissin- 
ger and Leo Bailey rode back from 
Tougaloo with him Sunday afternoon, 
all alone on the back seat." 

"And we wonder when Dr. Wharton 
will get all the Ricketts boys married 
— so he can settle down." For fur- 
ther developments, read on. 

And don't forget to read the ads! 

"A finger toward Mary Stone, Betty 
Larsen, Shirley Chichester and some 
four-score other co-eds for raving 
openly about Harwell Dabbs' S. A." 
(Remember? that meant "sex ap- 
peal.") 

"Heart-breaking, dashing Nelson 
Nail is still a constant visitor (or 
should we say intruder?) to the 
Miller's daughter, Alice Louise. I 
always knew that die-hards fall hard, 
but this looks like love to end all 
love." 

"A particularly caustic finger ex- 
tends toward Eugene Peacock for not 
even bothering to turn out the lights 
in the parlor of Calloway." 

"Most amusing spectacle of the year 
— this Pooky Barnes-Drip Craves riv- 
alry over 'the pink one.' It's a fight 
to the finish with no holds barred, 
except by Cele." 

DECEMBER — Christmas in the air, 
consequently fewer dates on the 
campus. 

"Bo Murry wants it understood that 
competition bothers him not in the 
least. Where it's concerned, he's 
just one of the Jones boys, anyhow."

TOMORROW AT MILLSAPS 

When a man, a business or a college begins to 
live in the past, all progress ceases. New buildings, 
new courses, new highs in scholarship are proof 
that Millsaps is living in the future. Tomorrow at 
Millsaps means more than just another day — It 
means a new thrill in learning, a keener insight into 
the past, a greater hope for concrete achievement. 
Millsaps is a college for people with a future. 
Do you have one? - 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



M. L. SMITH, President 



JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI 



The glorious Band is leaving for 
camp amidst tearful farewells — 

"Among the saddest at the band's 
departure will be Frances Irby. Rea- 
son: her newly budded romance with 
Julian Currie." 

"Death Takes a Holiday's repeat 
last night gave the girls a chance to 
sigh once more over Jim Thompson 
and his uniform, the boys to whistle 
over Emma Bauer's sequin dress. 
(Wow!)" 

"Football season's over but B. B. is 
still hollering (he never did holler at 
the right time) — this time it's because 
Mickey White and Dickie Lauderdale 
have cut him off Virginia Hansell's 
string." 

The Finger took a couple of extra 
weeks for Christmas holidays, during 
which time the sophomore stole the 
Class Night with a skating party in 
the down-town rink, the Sigs, K.A.s, 
and Pikes had Christmas parties. 

JANUARY — people begin to worry 
(just worry, not study) about exams, 
student calendar gets a shake-up by 
SEB. 

"Bee Bobo remarks of Tee Speng- 
ler's classy physique. 'Aw, he buys 
his shoulders at Kennington's'." 

"And here is a most scornful finger 
at the K. A.s for distributing pins in 
such wholesale quantities." (Busby, 
Lowe and Borum got 'em — to be fol- 
lowed shortly by Timberlake and 
Ricks.) 

"Say, when is Olga Wright going 
to step off? She's been wearing that 
slap-happy look long enough now." 

"And have you seen Eleanor Castle's 
sparkler? — " 

"Mary Emma Ervin manages to keep 
up in the clouds these days with a 
newly-acquired pair of wings." 

FEBRUARY — boys, remembering 
last year, enthusiastically vote to have 
another Leap Week. It's coming up!

"And to Martha Lou Lattimer a 
veddy deddy finger for contemplating 
a jaunt down the bridal lane. Poor 
Billy Ross!" 

"To the male portion of the student 
body a finger is pointed for letting the 
flying cadets out at Parks' beat their 
time. Maxine is just one of the co-ed 
recruits." 

"A finger toward Doc Hamilton for 
stealing Nannette — but now that she's 
gone, Congrats to 'em." 

Co-eds put out a Valentine edition 
dedicated to Mrs. Stone — 

"A finger at Davis Haughton for 
being so confident that he, already, is 
the supreme example of the 'small- 
town-boy-made-good.' All he's shown 
us so far is that he's a rather inflated 
example of the "small-town-boy." 

"Not one but 1200 ladyfingers at 
Jitterbug Kolb, who deserted Millsaps 
beauties last week to dance to M. 
S. C. W." 

"And a big black finger at S.E.B. 
and the faculty for all the regulations 
and red tape concerning the social 
calendar." (Remember that?) 

"Another at Jimmy Cavett for at- 
tempting a Clara Porter monopoly, 
thereby keeping the young lady out 
of respectable society." 

"First honors to Big Jim's pinning 
of Faola." 

"Ditto, Wharton and Beverley." 

"Ditto, Genie and Nell." 

"A most scornful appendage to 
Buddy Lloyd for leaving his pin on the 
Belhaven campus, even if she IS cute." 

MARCH — Debaters busy. Singers 
ready to leave, little time yet for 
spring. 

"Listen, Glee Club, we know you're 
good, and we're proud of you, but 
please remember concert music sung 
in the Grill is degrading — no matter 
how good it is. Besides, it's annoying 
when I'm trying to listen to 'Jumper's 
Jive."

"A finger to the debate team for 
running off with ALL the honors up at 
Union." 

Comes now the Freshman Edition — 

"As usual — the weekly item about 
Helen and Nat, but this is a very 
special one. Congratulations to you, 
Helen. (Now that that's a closed 
case guess we'll have to fill out the 
paragraph with Ess-'n'-Betty dope.)" 

Remember the mumps epidemic? — 

"D. T., you're fairly caught — what 
evidence! Catching mumps three 
days after your girl does — and some 
of you co-eds should be coming down 
soon too, what with Ogden, Powers, 
Blondie, Bob West, Graves, Daniels, 
etc, on the list." 

"Rivaling the wild tales of the glee 
club trip are those of the Sig picnic 
Saturday night." 

"A finger of scorn to Jane and 
Anders. Don't you know it's darker 
outside than in Galloway's parlor." 

APRIL — spring is here at last; and 
in the spring — 

"Dissension in the Kappa Alpha 
ranks. Reid Bingham is being a little 
fly in Ney "Budgie" Williams soup. 
Ain't it a shame he's not still a 
pledge, Ney?" 

"And we hear that things really 
popped on Chi Omega night at the 
Roof. The biggest scandal occurred 
when Mary McRae walked in with 
Wilford Doss." 

In honor of spring — "If the bench 
behind the science hall is still there 
when school is out, it won't be John 
and Shirley's fault. They haven't 
missed an afternoon lately, and we 
don't believe that comprehensives is 
a good excuse." 

"A dingy digit to Rice Wilson and 
Tip Stewart for being seen on the 
golf course last week. Yes, they were 
playing golf."

MAY — still spring, still picnics, 
comprehensive's over; decidedly not 
studying weather — 

"With exams rearing their ugly 
head over the horizon and with an 
epidemic of measles threatening the 
campus, the Finger of Scorn feels very 
happy. Nothing could make us hap- 
pier than to see B. B. Brady have meas- 
les and fail all his exams." 

"A staggering finger at Rube Wilder 
for increasing the membership of the 
K. A. Auxiliary. Wonder now how 
long the status quo of this group will 
stand." 

"Fireflies, a half moon, half a fried 
chicken, and The Half (Dewitt James) 
were all present at the K. A. picneck 
Saturday night." 

"A scornful finger at Mims Wright 
for not marrying Little Bit and taking 
her off Millsaps' hands."

the way, how did she get into l.R.C?" 

And the Finger is pocketed for

mains. And that — how long!'
