You'll remember waiting for her — or him — on that bench near the clock in Murrah Hall, or by that old drinking fountain right under the clock. Maybe you'll have the slightly unpleasant memory of some practical joker shoving your head straight into the spray when you bent to get a drink. Freshmen will recall those tight little skull-caps and those bare skulls, and will remember secretly wishing that someone would appear on Freshman Day in his or her real sleeping attire instead of pajamas or nightgowns. Sophomores won't forget those afternoon labs when the sunlight outside was so bright it seemed a pity to waste it. Seniors won't forget conferences or comprehensives. All students will share memories of Tap Day, of golf behind the Grill on warm afternoons, of daily scanning of the bulletin boards for announcements and assignments, of that Thursday per week when the PURPLE AND WHITE piles up on the radiators. There will be common memories of night classes, of lazy day and night strollings about the campus, of mornings and afternoons spent in research and amusement in the library, of the yearly conflicts between Choctaw and Major. The Clee-Club's annual state-wide tour is a stand-out, and Dr. White's plays ^re already immortalized in those scrawlings on the wall behind the stage. None of us is going to forget the morning of December 8, 1941, when about half the student body gathered in the chapel to hear President Roosevelt ask Congress for a Decision. Yet little of all this is new. The faculty has always been as much a member of the student body as the humblest freshman or the noblest Senior. Thousands of students have gone through all this in the fifty years Millsaps has stood; and thousands more will go through it in the years to come. These are only a few of the little, memorable, daily details of campus life. Behind them stand fifty years of Millsaps scholastic traditions, culminating m the Semi-Centennial celebration this year — 1942. He is a member of the faculty, but he is also "one of the gang". Not his the heavily pedantic manner in the classroom or out. One of his outstanding characteristics is a classroom manner as refreshing as a breeze from that electric fan which hangs from the ceiling of his teaching preserve, Room 10. He is from a family of Millsaps professors (his father was one and inci- dentally had a BOBASHELA dedicated to him') Once he himself was a mem- ber of the Millsaps student body. He was an activities man, being Comics Editor of the PURPLE AND WHITE, and perhaps his present good nature and interest in extra curricular activities are a left-over from those days. Certainly he is still the student in spirit and outlook, though the teacher in application to his duties. We feel pretty sure, knowing him as we do, that he will make some wise-crack about being the subject of the sentiments expressed here. He takes himself that lightly. Not so we, his students and associates--his friends Respectfully we dedicate the 1942 BOBASHELA to that well rounded personality, that dog show enthusiast, that pedagogical humorist, that proud father, that rattling good history professor--Dr. Ross H. Moore. -1 f#». /^ fA U 1 THE COLLEGE CLASSES ATHLETICS BEAUTIES SOCIALS ACTIVITIES AROUND THE CAMPUS K:: Zk e 1 - 1 [ J - - - \ [ DR. M. L. SMITH €ke U[ Symbolizing the spirit of educational leadership in the Magnolia State through half a century now becomes a vital tradition of the college which is part of your life and mine. It is a pleasure to express my appreciation to you for the contributions you have made to that tradition. Looking back upon our associations during the current year, we approach the next half-century with every assurance. M. L. SMITH 11 DR. W. E. RIECKEN Dean oj Men MRS. MARY B. STONE Dean of Womeri C? (^lie Between teaching her English classes, looking after the girls, and having Miss Millsaps for a daughter, Mrs. Stone is quite a busy person, on the cam- pus, but you can be sure every one of her jobs is well done. Not a student on the campus would hesitate to take a problem to her. In fact, many pay her visits just for a friendly talk. Not only is she a real friend and advisor to every girl, but she likes the boys too. So you can see that with no effort at all, Mrs. Stone, our Dean of Women, is a truly beloved person. Whether in Biology lab or behind the imposing desk in his office. Dean Riecken is one of the best-known and best-liked faculty members at Mill- saps. A really fine scholar and one of the few professors who still tips his hat. Dean Bill is, however, a pretty stubborn fellow. Though we all like him and admire him, you can be sure we respect him. He is fair and square in everything, and does a really fine job of keeping the students in hand and helping Dr. Smith keep them happy. 12 SULLIVAN-HARRELL HALL CARNEGIE-MILLS APS LIBRARY 13 -^ BUIE GYMNASIUM m BURTON HALL FOUNDERS HALL 15 €A e PROFESSOR A.

The social organizations fussed at first about getting only one date a month but what with the war and everything, it turned out very well. MEMBERS JAMES ARMSTRONG SAM BIRDSONC B. B.

Probably the most outstanding thing it has done is the organization of the Co-ed Union, which promises to be a very interesting and one of the most successful campus activities. As we go to press the Style Show is the only program it has pre- sented, but we are anxiously awaiting the others.

LECCETT ' A. L. ROGERS 26 Zk e [J ^ MARY STONE and LOUIS NAVARRO lis a n ^ [J A thoroughly capable person with a surprising number of serious thoughts, Mary has her finger in lots of campus pies. Being president of Chi Omega has taken nothing from her time to play, as anyone knows who has noticed her hanging out in the Crill or dashing about in Sheff's convertible. Likewise, Louis is president of his fraternity, Pi Kappa Alpha, and besides creating artistic marvels with pen and brush, he spends his time grading Spanish papers and indulging in earnest conversation with Ann Rhymes in front of Calloway. 29 s e n L r This tall, dark, and handsome fellow is the secret heart-throb of many a co-ed, so a place of honor is just what Boyd deserves. He performed quite success- fully the little business required of a Senior Class president, sandwiching it in between moments with Helen Alexander (first semester) and Jane Kern (second semester) . Headed for medical school i^- :: y>^-^ eventually, Boyd has the makings of a fine doctor (sigh!!'), and all the ladies look forward to the day when he can hold their hands, too. Emmett Rossie, Millsaps' Master Scien- tist, took a little time off this year from his countless labs and from running the Pre-med Club, to be Senior Class officer Number 2. We're really proud of Em- mett for being one of the few people who honestly and conscientiously observes Lent. To round out a set of scientific class officers, we have blond Mary McRae as secretary. Taking and returning one of the traditional Pike pins during the course of the year, Mary limited herself to blond Wilford Doss and biology comprehensive.

GLENN SWEANY NAOMI WARE LAWRENCE WARING DAVID WATTS CURTIS YOUNGBLOOD MARIE WHITEHEAD J u n L r U Being a class officer is no noveify for Davis Christmas, for this is his third year at it. Being president is definite evidence that "Little Davis" is a mighty fine fel- lov/, not even counting his being a good athlete and a grade-A student. However, his taste for army life proved too much for him, because he left us after first semester this year to offer his services to Uncle Sam. This Davis, the Junior Class vice pres- ident, is another of our many pre-med students and another super scholar. How- ever, he is deserting us after this year for medical school, and his shock of curly hair is bound to be missed. "Miss Ann," as our secretary is called, is another of those beautiful Rhymes girls. Her soft Southern accent is one we all know, and she usually spends her time listening for Louis's whistle under her window.

Buddy is a man of many tal- ents, as he surprised everyone this year by superbly driving the bus on the Glee Club Trips. His love life isn't very con- sistent, what with letting his pin go for only a few weeks, but he does show def- inite promise of becoming another B. M. O. C. like brother Bill. Upholding the sophomore tradition of re-electing their officers, we find "Wab- bit Widgeway" again as vice president. Little Walter surprises us all with his deep bass voice but it is really a contri- bution to the Singers. We feel that he really has bigger things ahead of him, and he is especially recognized by his frat brothers who elected him number one for next year.

However, Wal- lace is a little impulsive with his love af- fairs, accounting for the pinning of a Blue Mountain girl with his pledge button only a week or two after he received it him- self. This Williams fellow, Frosh V-P, is the typical Joe College. He spends con- siderable time chasing "Timber" Timber- lake. To everybody but the profs, he is known as "Sonny," but with a name like Crawford Fortsan, who could blame him. Bettye Hughes, the girl who yells for Millsaps while her brother plays football for the Chocs, is Secretary of her class.

"Hook" Stone completes his third successful season with the Majors as coach of football and Director of Athletics. Severely handicapped this year by the loss of his assistants, Bernie Ward and Melvin Richardson, and nearly a dozen of last year's veterans. Coach Stone shouldered, all alone, the tremendous responsibility of building a football team from a few seniors, a scrappy bunch of sophomores, and a handful of transfers. Not only this, but "Hook" faced one of the toughest schedules in the Dixie Conference. All he could do was hope for the best. As it happened, he managed to come through with a good, hard-fighting, well-balanced eleven. Therefore, we pay tribute to Coach Stone, who will long be remembered to Millsaps stu- dents and alumni everywhere as "Hook." It was his keen interest in the individual players themselves and his deep love for football as a game and a moulder of men with well-de- veloped bodies, as well as his ability as a director that made Coach Stone one of the best coaches Millsaps has ever boasted. Tuw of the mainstays oj this year's eleven were Captain Robert West and Co-captain Ed MatuUch. 63 ^nJlvlJual Pi n [ B The Majors' record for this year was four wins and five losses, but after considering the odds against which the Millsaps crew were fighting as well as the stiff schedule revealing only one tilt that might be termed a "breather," the season was rated a success in many ways. Special recognition should be given to a number of the stand-out men on this year's squad, but space is limited. Leading the pack this season was Cap- tain Bob West, towering, hard-hitting tackle who has been a bulwark in the Major line for two years. Robert Shell, another tackle, was elected the most valuable man on the squad by his team- mates after turning in the most suc- cessful season of his career. Elongated Wayne Baker, fleet end, was rated as the best blocker on the squad after paving the way for Millsaps touchdown on several occasions with his downfield blocking. Wendell "Bull" Hart, cen- ter, and a member of the All-Dixie team, was one of the biggest factors in the season's success, with his block- ing and accurate centering from the pivot position. Co-captain Ed Matulich and "Hank" Steinreide were two of the mainsprings in the backfield and both turned in some beautiful performances on broken field runs during the fall that left the opponents holding the bag. Tommy Jones, a fast back, and "Scoop" Canterbury, an expert pass- receiver, also deserve mention for their performances. The Majors got off to a flying start this year by taking highly favored Cen- tenary into camp in the season's opener, 20-0. Then Louisiana College fell before the Majors' guns, 19-0. The elusive running of Ed Matulich and Wayne Baker's pass-snagging contrib- uted heavily to these victories. Hank Steinreide, Tommy Jones, and Dick Catledge also made good showings.

The third de- feat was administered to the Majors by a fight- ing bunch of vengeful Mississippi Southern Yellowjackets; the score 20-0. Then the Choc- taws of Mississippi College came over from Clinton for the annual grudge battle. Neither team was a heavy favorite, but the Chocs man- aged to push across three touchdowns to win 21-0. Although the Majors threatened several times, and carried the pigskin deep into Choc territory, they lacked the scoring punch neces- sary to cross into the promised land. In the last two games of the season, the Millsaps eleven overwhelmingly defeated Delta State 40-0, and Mississippi State overpowered the Majors, 41 -6. :;^^25 ',22 %% 26, 32 27_34 ^° 19 ■+^5 ^2p. 7^ ,2g^ 5^ 20 <1\- ■ 1 \ 16, €/. I r a ill e D The Millsaps cagers began the most disastrous season in recent years with a team composed almost entirely of in- experienced players. Cliff Jones, All- Dixie forward for two years, was on hand for early drills but left for the U, S. Air Corps. Buddy Carr returned from the army in mid-season, and con- tinued his stellar play of the past season. Although they were unable to match the feats of Jones, Ward, and Co. of the '41 championship team, this year's cagers were a hustling and aggressive quintet. Many of the more experienced teams were able to win only after stiff struggles. Several of the inexperienced players showed great promise, and would probably have developed into future stars if the war had not forced abandonment of intercollegiate play. This year's squad was under the tutelage of Coach B. O. "Van Hook. Van hlook returned to the helm after a year's absence, in which the team was coached by Bernie Ward. Van Hook has established an enviable repu- tation in former years, and has always been able to get the best results with the available material. The Millsaps boys were unsuccessful in their attempt to defend for the sec- ond consecutive year the Dixie confer- ence championship. However the Pur- ple Team played a spirited and deter- mined brand of ball. 67 zke Piiiin In addition to Carr, pace-setters of this year's team were "Lightnin" Low- ther and Captain Tommy Jones. Low- ther had previously played on the freshman team, but had never played Varsity ball. Jones' only experience had been as a member of the Wesson Jr. College aggregate. Carr and Low- ther provided the nucleus of the Major offensive, while Jones was the defen- sive star. Carr is one of the most de- ceptive forwards ever to don a purple uniform. Giving able support to Carr from the other forward terminal was sophomore Buford Blount. The pivot position was capably handled by Low- ther, who was a dangerous shooter from any position. Bobby Clark, big sophomore, played opposite Jones at the guard terminal. John McLaurin saw active duty at both the guard and forward positions. Other members of the squad were James Webb, Joe Stubblefield, Benny Richardson, Mike McLaurin, Brandon Bell, "Bull" Hart, Henry Steinreide, and Phil Bass. The only man to receive recognition was "Lightnin" Lowther, who was se- lected as a forward on the Second All- Dixie team. Others would probably have received honors had the Majors reached the semi-finals or finals. BLOUNT LOWTHER STUBBLEFIELD COOK JONES McLAURIN WEBB CLARK CARR 69 The 1942 tennis team, coached by Dr. M. C. White, has yet to play its first match as we go to press. V/ith the loss of the entire 1941 squad, with two exceptions. Coach White has developed a strong team from five freshmen and two sopho- mores. Newcomers Clay Miller, Clifton Wilson, Charles Allen, Jack Ross, and Gerald McMillan, and sophomores James hlolder and Leslie Matthews have been practicing for several weeks, and will soon take the court against Mississippi College in several matches. Other matches are also arranged with nearby teams, and prospects for a successful season are good. ( JO omen s 1 kijslcal Cyoucation a t n In her second year at Millsaps as director of Women's Physical Education, Miss Frances Decell has developed a better and more varied physical education program for girls at Millsaps than ever before. It is now possible for the co-eds to enroll in classes in golf, tennis, swimming, horse-back riding, and rhythms, for which they receive special credit. In the classroom, those most keenly interested in physical education receive instruction from Miss Decell in recreational leadership and recreational sports. These classes are proving to be more and more appealing to the fairer sex at Millsaps. Aside from the special classes offered in physical training, the girls' intramural program has been expanded this year. The program now includes archery, badminton, tennis, volley ball, basketball, ping pong, and shuffleboard. A new emphasis is being placed on the recrea- tional program for girls at Millsaps, and a game room is to be opened to all in the near future. Innovations this year included shuffleboard, bad- minton, and Play Night, held each Saturday evening in the gymnasium for those interested in dramatics. Archery has also been opened to all students as a recreational facility for the first time this year. With the increase in the interest of spectators due to the folding up of practically all intercollegiate competition, intramurals are coming to a new prom- inence. It is hoped that next year, the intramural program for girls can be expanded still more, and that new facilities can be opened for the enjoyment of all. For those girls who show the most active interest in athletics at Millsaps, the Majorette Club has been organized. 71 or. omen 5 y RIDING TENNIS ARCHERY ^ms^^ I JS K V il' u [BiCII SWIMMING FOLK-DANCING GOLF 1 V Behind the steady pitching of Mary Stone, the Chi Omega's Softball team bat- tled its way to the intramural champion- ship. The Chi O's displayed plenty of power as they swept through their four games without a loss. The B. S. O's also had a strong team but finally yielded to the champs. The deciding factor was the batting strength of the Chi Omegas, which featured the hitting of Stone, Eager, and Co. The boy's intramural program has wit- nessed bitter competition, and no team has been able to gain a decisive lead. The Lambda Chi Alpha's have the Bad- minton and Speedball cups, while the K. A.'s and Pikes have proved victorious in Softball and basketball. The Lambda Chi Omega Softball Winners K. A. Sojtball Winners Chi's are the defending champions, but will have to hold their own in the remain- ing events to repeat. These include horse-shoes, volley ball, track, ping pong, and tennis. The teams competing for the big cup include, in addition to the Lambda Chi's, the Pikes, the K. A.'s, the Kappa Sig's, and the Preachers. Kappa Alpha got off to a flying start in the intramural race by capturing the Softball cup. The team was undefeated, although they received stiff competition from the Kappa Sig's. The K. A.'s boasted a powerful attack to back up the steady hurling of Walter Baskin. The Lambda Chi's, winner in 1941, fielded almost an entirely new team that was unable to repeat last year's victories. 74 a i D fast pace. They have already cinched little cups in basketball, volley ball, bad- minton, and ping pong. If they maintain this pace, they will win the large cup by a greater margin than last year. The other teams competing with the B. S. O.'s are the Chi Omegas, Kappa Deltas, Phi Mus, and the non-sorority girls. This year's basketball cup was captured by the Pi K. A. quintet. Mainstays of the aggregate were Charles Burnham and freshman Mike McLaurin. All the Pike loopsters were good ball handlers, and this proved the decisive factor. Among those defeated by the Pikes were the Preachers, defending champions, the Lambda Chis, and the Kappa Sigs. The K. A.'s forfeited their game. B. S. O.'s Basketball Champions The 1942 intramural basketball cup will again go to the Beta Sigma Omicron Sorority. With the victory, the Beta Sig lassies forged into the lead for the big cup, which they won with ease last year. The sextet was undefeated in games with the Chi Omegas, Kappa Deltas, Phi Mu's, and the Non-sorority girls. Team play featured the B. S. 0. victories, although they were paced by such stars as Hettie Faye Beasley, Cecil Haeuser, and Bettye Hughes. These lassies were able to fire the wicker consistently and to effectively check the opposition. In the girl's intramural program the Beta Sigma Omicrons are again setting a Pi Kuppa Alplia Basketball Champions This spring the Beta Sigma badminton team proved themselves cham- pions by coming through a tough schedule unbeat- en. Coming in to the last stage, the B. S. O.'s were forced into fast play as the Chi Omegas furnished stiff competition. 5;; J^ ore I Led by diminutive star Alan Holmes, the Lambda Chis were undefeated for the fourth consecutive year. The Livingston Street squad battled the Kappa Alphas in a hard fought match that was not decided until the final game. The Kappa Sigs, the Pi K. A.'s, and the Preachers were defeated handily. Holmes was the "*^ '' only member of the team that had participated in previous competition. Newcomers to the team were Bill Shanks, M. J. Williams, and Harry Frye. 76 -< ^ * Volley Ball, next to Softball, places the larg- est team on the court and gives opportunity for group participation. Hon- ors were divided among all teams and many play- ers, but Hettie Faye Beas- ley iCym Queen) played in her steady fashion and I e d such outstanding players as Allie Ruth Chatham and Julia Was- son. As a result of Millsaps' decision to abandon intercollegiate sports, the intramural program will be greatly expanded next year. There are more teams this year in order to give non-fraternity men a chance to participate. This is being tested this spring with Softball and thus far has been successful. The Ping Pong intramurals were played by experienced veterans of the game. The teams, all doubles, loosed their feminine reserve and really went to town when it came to swatting the ball. The compe- tition developed some very strong players but as has been the story before, the B. S. O.'s and the Chi O.'s came together to decide the final outcome with the B. S. O.'s taking the top honor. 77 / V SI 1 t [) a (1 hr- ,/ t ,] \ i< 1 ti \ Select or Every college girl knows Jon Whitcomb by his simply ideal illustrations.

Dr. Smith, Mr. King, and the officers of the club thought perhaps it would be best to cancel the proposed western tour this year and substitute in its place two shorter trips in and just around Mississippi. This would serve a two-fold purpose: better establish the Singers in home territory, and recruit students for school next year. The first trip thus proposed took place the last week in February, and touched such important Mississippi cities as Co- lumbus, Starkville, New Albany, Green- wood. Greenville, and Drew; with Mem- phis, Tenn. as the high point. C^ke The second trip, only proposed at the time of this writing, is to include such cities as Pensacola, Mobile, Moss Point. Biloxi. Gulfport, New Orleans, and Shreveport. Shorter trips have touched McComb, Crystal Springs. Laurel, and Hattiesburg. This marks the seventh year of the Millsaps Singers under their present leadership, utilizing their present name. "Pop" King, our beloved director, has deftly guided the group to the pinnacles of musical achievement during this per- iod, and has made from its members one of the finest a capella choirs in the coun- try. War conditions have somewhat cur- tailed the Singers' activities this year, but we feel that the message in music which we have to bring will surpass any difficulties. Pop has imparted to every member his love of great religious music, and every person considers it an honor to be a member of the choir. lis [ OFFICERS THOMAS SPENCLER ------- President RUTH GIBBONS ------ Vice-President SYLVIA ROBERTS -------- Secretary AVERY PHILP -------- Manager CHARLES ALLEN DORSEY ALLEN JEAN BARNETT BETH BARRON CAROLYN BEST SAM BIRDSONC BARBARA BOSWELL MARY ALICE BOYLES BETTY BRIEN ALMA ELIZABETH CARL JOAN CARL JAMES CARTER ROSEMARY CORLEY HERBERT CRAIG CLEM CROOK MARY DAVIS BEVERLEY DICKERSON ANN DUKE EMMA GENE CAINEY RUTH GIBBONS JACK GLAZE VERNON GOODWIN JEAN GRAMBLING MILDRED GREENV^AY KATHERINE GRIMES MEMBERS JAMES HINMAN JAMES HOLDER FRANCES IRBY EVALINE KHAYAT JACK KING JANIE LOU KING ROSELLE KNIGHT MIRIAM LANCASTER JANE LANDSTREET MYRTIS LOFLIN CARROLL LOWE FLORENCE MARS LENELL MAXCY LOUISE MILLER WILLIAM MINGEE VIRGINIA MINYARD MARJORIE MOUNGER WALTER NEILL JAMES OGDEN ROBERT PEARSON AVERY PHILP JOHN POOLE CLARA PORTER VIRGINIA PRICE LOUISE PULLEN KATHERINE RICHARDSON WALTER RIDGWAY BOB ROBERTS SYLVIA ROBERTS JACQUELINE ROGERS ELLENITA SELLS MARTHA SHEFFIELD THOMAS SPENCLER KATHLEEN STANLEY JACQUELINE STEVENS HUNTER STOKES MARY STONE KATHERINE STRAIT THELMA THOMPSON EDWIN TOPP NELL TRIPLETT JERRY TROY LAWRENCE WARING ALEC WATKINS DAVID WATTS EDWIN WILSON BUDDY WOFFORD NOEL WOMACK JACQUELINE WREN FRANCES WROTEN y^A\./^y^\t. •'! */*^/^--^*\^ [ This is the organization at which all dramatic students look with long- ing eyes.

'"'"^ ST" f u DD The golden key of Omicron Delta Kappa marks male students at Mill- saps who are outstanding in such ac- tivities as forensics. publications, ath- letics, scholarship, and club work. These crusaders for a greater Mill- saps meet monthly and devise plans so involved that not even their fellow members can appreciate them. This reservoir of dynamic leadership came through for once with an ingenious plan to make the Millsaps graduate the best farmer yet. This program was backed with a film and a chapel lec- ture. In conjunction with Sigma Lambda they dreamed into reality the very suc- cessful service club — TOPPER.

The members really write — and rather well, too. This year they are indulging in quite a bit of adverse criticism at their "monthly" hen parties. Coco and Sheffield keep the group amused, while Helen and Mary write what they call "Soupy Stuff." Janice causes a mild revolution by writing something really good. If we were at all effusive, we might liken them to a literary flower bloom- ing in a desert — but we will just say they have a glowing literary future, and leave it at that.

This club, under the direc- tion of Mrs. J. L. Roberts, meets twice a month in her studio. Programs this year have featured sym- phonic music, and guest artists including Mrs. Armand Coullet and Mrs. Roberts. Members have done research v^'ork along the building of nevi' types of music. They report plans for the bringing of an artist in the near future to Millsaps v^ho is a great factor in program building of the best music. Needless to say, there has been quite a bit of v^'onder and specu- lation among the "Hoy Paloi ' as to who this mysterious artist may be. At any rate, when and if he arrives, and if he is worthy of attention, all the credit will justly go to the Beethoven Club. Members themselves occasionally con- trive to be on the programs — they liter- ally fight for the privilege. Sometimes readings or other dramatic recordings take the place of music on the program. The purpose of the club is to improve its members along all cultural lines. Under the able direction of Mrs. Roberts, and interested cooperation of all mem- bers, this purpose Is accomplished to an admirable degree. 140 u B OFFICERS President --------- BEVERLEY DICKER50N Vice-President -------- MARY JO CURRIE Secretary .-______ ANN DUKE Corresponding Secretary ----- JEAN CRAMBLINC Treasurer ------- KATHERINE RICHARDSON Program Chairman -------- RUTH GIBBONS MEMBERS ALICE BENDING GLADYS LITTON BETTY BRIEN CAROL LOWE EDITH CORTRIGHT MAUD ELLA MAJURE HERBERT CRISLER CAROLYN McPHERSON JEAN DAY JEAN MORRIS BEVERLEY DICKERSON CAROLYN MYERS ANN DUKE LOUISE PULLEN KINCHEN EXUM KATHERINE RICHARDSON EMMA GENE GAINEY SYLVIA ROBERTS RUTH GIBBONS MARY ROSS FRANCES GILL DOROTHY SIMPSON JEAN GRAMBLING SUE SMITH MILDRED GREENWAY JACQUELINE STEVENS KATHERINE GRIMES PEGGY STROUD ANNIE MARION CUYTON POLLY STROUD HELEN HAYES GERTRUDE SWARTZ BETTY JO HOLCOMB THELMA THOMPSON CHARLOTTE JONES LADY BETTY TIMBERLAKE ROSELLE KNIGHT NELL TRIPLETT MILLICENT LAMPE 141 V^ V^ I I-*' ik e 1 J D Flounderers at Founders ....

Those not in the student body are Bob Faerber of Alabama Engraving Co. and Durant Finley of Tucker Printing House. Without their whole hearted help and cooperation this book could not have been published. Those students to whom I am sincerely grateful are Mirl Whitaker, photographer and general flunky; Jim Wilson, sports writer who found it necessary to leave school but who did excellent work while here; Duncan Brackin, who on a moment's notice took over Jim's job; Louis Navarro, who drew the cute sketches; John Malone, who can write on any subject; Eliza- beth Buchanan and Clara Porter, who typed on into the night; Mims Wright, who so willingly lent his camera; and James Armstrong, who bolstered morale at the crucial moments. These are the people who made this book possible, so if you like it, please tell them. ylie C^dilor 152 A MESSAGE OF APPRECIATION AND A PLEDGE OF FAITH This year, as Millsaps College enters upon its second half century of service, it sends a message of appreciation and a pledge of faith to all who have kindled the flame of the Millsaps ideal ... to the young men and young women of three generations who have felt their minds awaken and their pulses quicken as their personalities blended into the living- spirit of their Alma Mater, Through the students whom Millsaps has guided through the gates of opportunity, the world itself has become not too large to be her sphere of influence. And therefore this message and this pledge are for ALL Millsaps students, past and future as well as present . . . for that unending stream of the sons and daughters of Millsaps who, with a reality which transcends even space and time, represent the College.

Dear Lily: Another whole years has gone by and summer vacation is slttmg right in our laps. It's pretty hard to realize that you haven't been here at school with all of us this year to share all the fun as we used to do. Why. when I think about September and all the excitement of enrolling and greeting old friends and meeting the new people, it makes me right blue to leave even for a few months. Rush season was |ust as hectic as usual, but I think every- body enjoyed it in spite of themselves. And speaking of rushing, do you know that Elizabeth Buchanan wrote a rush letter to Mirl Whitaker, thinking he was a girl- He wrote back and asked if she minded if his middle name was Wesley and his mother called him son. I think he's the only KD rushee that ever pledged Pike. The Chi Omegas redecorated their house during the sum- mer ( in spite of Bob Nichols ) . and started off the year under fresh paint and new curtains. The Chi O's weren't the only ones, though, 'cause the Sigs, the KA's and Julia May Watkins (now that Roy Clark is gone) have redecorated too. Burton has been converted into a girl's dormitory, and Founder's is actually inhabitable! You wouldn't know the campus any more. We've had quite a celebrity Dora Hwa, from Shanghai. China on the campus this year — She's a twenty -two year Dora Hwa, trom Shanghai. Lhi na. bnes a twenty -Two year old Chinese girl who already has a law degree from Soochow University. She's staying in ELirton and studying political science here at Millsaps, I wish you could have been here for Freshman Day, I knovv you remember what it's like, 'cause we both took part in it when we were freshmen. Martha Ann Smylie and Ray Stewart reigned as King and Queen, but they didn't beat Crubbs and Womack! The Finger of Scorn commented on the occasion by misquoting: "Seeking a moral from such confusion Leads us only to this conclusion: Surely the blessings of civilization Have NOT been subject to exaggeration." Football season opened on due schedule, with the usual appearance of old and new couples. Prime examples are Albert Sanders and Martha Mansfield (they call it love but we know it's habit ) , and Harry Frye and Helen McCehee (who would like for people to think that it's a habit i . Come October we had class elections, which was the usual combination mud-bath and smile-marathon. However, nobody was surprised. Emma Gene Cainey started off the year with top honors In the date situation. She ended up with a complex case of four for one football game, and had to go home to straighten 'em out. How 'bout that? time in picking him out a He says she's his type. She's Lawrence Rabb wasted no freshman — Winnie Lee Farmer. not fussing, though. Jean Morris started out looking very last-yearish with Daddy Waring, but the brotherly competition got the best of him. She says she's really true to Pinkie. That pin says so, anyway. Sonny Williams thinks he's the cutest freshman on the campus, but he only got elected Vice President of his class, so I guess he's properly squelched. Since Graham wasn't here this year, Evaline actually did some work for a change. She even made the Y. W. a decent organization for the first time in years. Willie Branch dropped out of school after about six weeks, so we had to elect somebody else to fill the vacancy that he left. Louis Navarro. Millsaps' Man of the Year, got the job. and thus got his first shove on the road to fame and fortune. ( Well, fame, anyway ! l . We actually had a good chapel program once last fall. Delbert Harter, who traveled around the world a thousand times and had countless adventures, spoke about all of his escapes. All the gals thought he was "the most glamorous man," but he disillusioned 'em all by being married. The Student Body banquet was as big a success as ever. Hepzibah Haig was there, so how could it help but be!

It was here in its usual sawdusty style, and of course, everybody suspended activities for a week while they ruined appetites and pocket books. At the first Sig picnic of the year, Toupie Neilson put on the whole program for them. The entertainment committee was very grateful, 'cause it was good. Hmmmmmmmm! That everlasting Topp-Pullen-Stuckenschneider triangle started out the year going strong, but Stuck finally woke up and turned to Irby for consolation. Fall Tap Day came with yards of ribbon as usual. O. D. K strained itself and took in five new members. Tubby Tatum was one, Bettye Nail is in love again, and this time it's Lt. Ted White. She says it's the real thing, but you never know about these Nails. Guess what? Helen Ricks actually knitted a sweater for Nat. I It was wearable) . For a whole week back there in October nobody could pass within yards of Dr. Moore without suddenly finding himself in possession of a ticket to the Dog Show or a picture of the brand new Butch. You know Dr. Moore! Pan Hellenic finally got around to having its much post- poned picnic. Something had always happened before. Mlllsaps was well represented in Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities this year. There were twelve of 'em. Even Sam Birdsong made it. Maybe I shouldn't mention this, but we did play the Choc- taws again, I'll leave the rest to your all -too- good imagi- nation. We seem to be in a rut. anyway. We really had some excitement in connection with that much publicized game, too. Scalps, both purple and blue, were flying for a while. B. B. and the boys quite disgraced themselves by not getting away with their somewhat involved escapade. Homecoming came, and so did a "few" faithful old grads- We had quite a day of it. Can you imagine, but Dan Wright is still carrying the torch for Amelia Watkrns. who's definitely been a monopoly for months. I think there ought to be a dumping ground for these torch-bearers, don't you? That Frances Irby is a cradle-robber from way back. Billy Wright says that that's the way to rule the world, so I guess she believed him. Temporarily, anyway. Dr, White put on six one-act plays in November, and offered a prize for the best performances. The plays were pretty good, but everybody nearly popped when the awards were given. Slick Troy won, but it couldn't have been because of ability, with that dumb part he had. He's )ust that way naturally. You'd never guess what the Majorette Club gave as a prize for the best performance in Stunt Night, It was a bucket. The Sigs won it, and now use it as a scrub bucket at the fraternity house. All the stunts were good, though, Bradford Wells gave an extra good performance as Professor Sanders, by discussing Petty girls instead of ancient art. His role call was ]ust too perfect. Early in December Dr. White gave us another play, one of the big ones of the year. It was "Charley's Aunt." and with Sam Schiek as the old gal. you can easily imagine what a reception it got. Cecilia Burdette has certainly allowed Freshman Wilson to hang around a lot. How she can put up with his definitely luvenile attention is beyond me. Religious Emphasis Week was run on a different plan this year. Six prominent Millsaps graduates came to hold a series of discussion groups, along with daily chapel talks. It was quite successful. I think, and certainly a new angle that appealed to the students. Harwell Dabbs has certamly upheld his philandering repu- tation. He's added Louise Pullen and Beth Barrow to his list of female disciples. You should've been here to see T, Spengler exude his "Purple Passion" for the Sullens' visiting talent. He was quite overcome. She's married now, though, so I guess his heart is properly broken. Jackson Lumber Co.

Ney Williams has certainly looked lost all year without a current flame. Maybe somebody should put out his tourch, huh? The Singers gave a simply super candle-light service just before the holidays. I'm really proud of them, as who wouldn't be? Charline and Buddy Wofford kept their affair pretty secret until )ust about Christmas time, when they popped up with a pinning, but it. like so many others, didn't last long. Out of all the topics Kinchum Exum used for his Student Foil, the prize one was "Is there a Santa Claus?" The stupid students voted yes. That's collegiate wisdom for you! I don't know what we would've done for excitement this fall if it hadn't been for the Mole. If Dick Tracy had caught up with him any sooner I think the campus would've sent in a complaint. Then the holidays and the parties! You can just bet we were all just about ready for some "west and wewaxation" afterwards, but just about that time it was January 5. and we had to grind our noses down some more. What with the war 'n everything, the old campus wasn't quite the same after Christmas, With exams all over, Mill- saps began to set up a new curriculum which is to last for the duration of the emergency. Lots of new courses are now offered, including short -hand and typing, and the Red Cross has a nursing and first-aid course. It sounds mighty good. The Pikes seemed to think the best way to begin the second semester was to hand out frat pins slightly whole- sale. At any rate, they're still rolling in KD cigars after all this time. I think the Pikes want to see if they can equal the KA's. who still hold the record. I don't know how Brady ciid it, but he's convinced Frances Jean Cruise that he's pretty marvelous. At any rate, she must think so, to put up with him for this long. "B. M. C." Kellum didn't wait very long to take up with Jane Kern after her tragedy with Cecil Inman. They've got it bad now, Frances Irby, Mary Stone, Lad Waring, and Tom Scott would've expired from boredom this year if it hadn't been for Bambo Ball and her deb season, 'cause it definitely kept them all on the go. Pretty gay. too. Baird Green came back to school second semester and we were all mighty glad to see him. He was pretty well missed. We certainly had an eyebrow-raising rumor circulating about then, which said V/ingy Watkins was married. By the t.me everybody had gotten all excited about it, we found out that some of his "buddies" started it to see what would happen ! Before it seemed possible. February came and initiations began. They called forth some caustic cracks from the ■Finger of Scorn, These are the new fraternity and sorority titles according to that well-known column. Kappa "A knife m the back is worth two in the throat" Alpha. Kappa "Don't worry about us, we'll get along" Delta.

The Co-ed edition of the P&W came out on February 12, edited by Elizabeth Peeler and Katie Richardson, and adorned with cupids, hearts, and purple print. Buddy Carr returned to school in the spring and promptly confused two young ladies. Nobody has been able to figure out this complicated triangle. Inter-collegiate football died a painless death on our campus in February, when the Board of Trustees voted it out It didn't come as much of a surprise to us, though. We're due to have a bigger and better intramural program next year in its place. The Best In Tobaccos CORR-WILLIAMS TOBACCO CO.

In February they went north through Mississippi to Memphis, and then in April they went south in Mississippi and to New Orleans. They used the Millsaps bus, giving a slightly sardiney flavor to the affair. As usual the rest of the students acted bored at all the stones of "what we did in Memphis and New Orleans," but they were really envious, I know. The Sigs, KA's, and Pikes all celebrated the beginning of spring by holding open houses and showing their elegant establishments to the public. They are really good-looking. I'm afraid the Dixie Tournament wasn't such an event on our campus this year. We don't even talk about the out- come. But, after all, we can't have an extra special team and win the championship every year. You'll never guess who got elected Master Major and Miss Millsaps — Louis Navarro and Mary Stone! Can't you just see them together? Blondie and Eva broke up this spring, much to my dis- appointment. It kinda destroyed my faith in something. M. S. P. A. met at Millsaps in March, and simply overran the campus. It did give us an opportunity to look over some prospective freshmen. Katie Richardson and Ed Wilson evidently have it pretty bad. but Slick Troy (hangover from the C. C. T.) doesn't seem to bother them at all, which must mean it's serious. Some brave P&W-ite conducted a poll on kissing. When Noel Womack was interviewed he immediately replied, "I think it's just ducky," but all Wagland Watkins would con- tribute was, "That'sh shilly." What with comprehensives looming up March 23, there wasn't such a thing as a civil Senior on the campus. As usual, none of 'em started studying until the week before. Actually, Easter came during spring holidays this year. It surely was nice. I think everybody was ready for a httle extra breathing time about then, too, particularly Seniors. While everybody was under the impression that spring was the season of budding romances, we found it didn't work so well around here. Another old faithful couple came to the parting of the ways. This time it was Albert Sanders and Martha Mansfield. Tiens! Tiens! Millsaps usual team of debaters did us proud again this year in the tournament. I envy debaters, 'cause I fully believe it takes twice as much work, energy, and ambition to be a good one, than it does to be most anything else. High School Day ! Remember last year? We all worked just as hard to show the "children" the campus and to get 'em to give us a thought for next year. I'm glad it doesn't come but once a year, though ! Dr. White outdid himself and gave another three-act play in April. "The Passing of the Third Floor Back", and then another in May, "Her Step-Husband," They were both huge successes, in spite of the absence of faithful Sam Schiek. who has enlisted- The most beautiful friendship I know is the one between "B. F," Spengler and "B. F." Porter. There should be more like It. The climax of the whole year came during April 12-15, with the celebration of Millsaps' Semi-Centennial. It made us all feel pretty important to take part in such an im- pressive anniversary. The Freshman edition of the Purple and White came out on April 17. They did themselves proud with it, but, then, they always do. School drew to a close with a few weeks of gorgeous weather, picnics and wading parties, and very little studying. Everybody more or less drifted along until exams, when we all stopped, say, for a few minutes, and brushed up a bit. Then we saw the Seniors graduated in fine style, and left ourselves for another good ole summer. Though it's rather superfluous to say that it's been a grand year, for you can see that for yourself, I can't resist it. It was truly wonderful. Having used up all the news I know. I'll stop.
