Some t'me in the future when you are reminiscing about your college days, you'll likely 
remember that old brick walk to the grill, over which you strolled with your friend or sweet- 
heart to get a coke and listen to the juke-box. 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.

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.

(^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.

The Student Executive Board this year secured the reapportionment of 
the Student Activities Fee under the instigation of campus agitators Ross, 
Gillis, Holmes, and Rabb. It reorganized the student calendar giving only 
two nights a week for functions. 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.

The Woman's Council, which acts as a go-between for the women 
students on the campus and the faculty, this year drew up a new set of 
dormitory rules regarding dating, hours and nights out. 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.

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.

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.

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.

A Junior spends his life in the library. According to Fred, Clanne, and Mirl, 
"It's a great life if ijov don't weaken.''

Rounding out his second year as presi- 
dent of his class is sophomore Buddy 
Wofford. 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. 

Charline "Stinky" Harris is one of 
Millsaps outstanding newspaper women 
and budding actresses. Charline is par- 
ticularly noted for her ability and capac- 
ity for all kinds of work, though sitting 
up all night at it and constantly exclaim- 
ing "I'm going crazy!"

Wallace Russell has started off his 
Millsaps career in the upward direction, 
having copped the Freshman president 
position and becoming Y Vice President 
for next year; and shows promise of turn- 
ing into a big Big Shot. 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. 
Her year has been busily occupied with 
being model pledge, and driving alter- 
nately her fiance's big green Buick and 
her own blue one around town. '»

As Millsaps rings down the curtain 
on all intercollegiate athletics, with 
the exception of basketball and tennis, 
Henry L. "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.

^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.

After tasting the sweets of victory for two 
weeks, the Majors suffered a 21-0 setbacl< at 
the hands of Memphis State, and the next 
weel<, dropped another tilt to the Southeastern 
Louisiana Institute eleven, 6-0. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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'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.

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

forced into fast play as 
the Chi Omegas furnished 
stiff competition.

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.

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.

The Empyreans, successors to the Barbarians, 
executed many successful activities these past few 
months. Outside speakers, games, and projects 
gave a never ending tone of variety to their pro- 
grams. They led and pushed the way in mailing 
Play Night a reality.

Representatives of the fraternities meet once, then again, with Rush 
Week jammed in between. The first time they carefully formulate necessary 
plans and precautions. At the second meeting an actual count of casualties 
is made and formal protests are filed. Of course, plans for cooperation are 
always made, and for once a nifty dance emerged.

This group of sorority leaders meets for the purpose of "solving" prob- 
lems. They rule very firmly with gloved hands and achieve much criticism 
and partial success. At present the question of closed rushing during the 
summer is prominent, as we go to press no decision about this has been 
reached.

Puffing along under Perennial Prexy Ball, '42 found the Phi 
Mus joyfully opening their arms to receive the national canning 
champion, Maude Ella Majure. But this was not the extent of their 
endeavor, for Betty "These glasses don't mean nothing" Murphy 
continued to uphold the chapter scholastic average by patting Dr. 
White's exposed scalp and smiling prettily at Prof. Sanders. Up-

Taking and returning pins in a sort of geometric progression, 
Kappa Delta's wooed and repented their way through '42. This 
amazing success may have been due to the sweater parade every 
Wednesday, led by Louise "Sweater Girl" Miller. Milly rested on 
her laurels, and did nothing but look ornamental .... as usual. 
Crubbs grabbed gobs of glory glibly gabbing over the radio, care- 
fully chaperoned by "Don't take me seriously" Buchanan. Mans- 
field piled up a mountain of honors, and then "ran up," or "ran 
down," for Miss Millsaps. The key to the chapter s prosperity lay 
in the rigorous rushing campaign, as evidenced by the attempted 
pledging of "Miss" Mirl Whitaker.

These fugitives from the Olympics took women's intramurals 
without disturbing their make-up, and Cecil Haeuser developed a 
near monopoly of the football team. Peeler emerged as a B. W. 
O. C. and Prissy continued to priss to no good purpose whatever. 
Support from the Governor's Mansion resulted in the biggest crop 
of pledges on record. Politically they managed to cop a class 
office — to their utter amazement — and Codbold continued to man- 
age things both in the sorority and on the campus.

This year found these little girls in fine spirits, with Clara 
toying with seven A's and with Hix swimming like a mermaid. 
Of course, confusion developed as two Queens emerged, Smylie of 
the Freshmen and Stone as Miss Millsaps. Faculty support and 
contact were arranged by Dickerson. The peace of this scene was 
continually disturbed by a streak of red and Sheff's significantly 
snappy chatter. Ricks added to this by telling someone about Nat, 
calling a meeting of Sigma Lambda, or editing this book.

Major Millsaps heaved a sigh of relief as little grand-nephew 
Bobbie Buie came to dear old Millsaps, and Robert E. Lee slept 
more peacefully as he joined the courageous force of Confederates. 
Dabbs, of course, ate his vitamins and shed his coat as the tem- 
perature went down. Chastain groomed himself to take over when 
Duke and Cephus are drafted. Membership in the Auxiliary de- 
clined, but Helen and Mary Lee remain true to the Crimson and 
the Gold. Lauderdale did a bang-up, though somewhat sleepy eyed 
job of directing student affairs. Rounding out their activities, the 
Order "Topped" the "Y."

The Sigs added another little tradition unto themselves as 
"Man Mountain" Stewart filled the shoes Womack so recently 
left. They won the bucket Stunt Night, and this trophy adds a 
certain "Siggish" note to the new house. The only two solid and 
sober members of the chapter, Bob Nichols and B. B. Brady, con- 
tinued to be regular little "Mothers' helpers" about the campus. 
John took lessons from brother Albert on how to run a four year 
college romance successfully.

To completely blast last year's record of 0, Pikes scattered 
their pins to the four winds in '42. True, pinnees returned most 
of them — on grounds of desertion. Navarro covered himself with 
glory pinning Miss Ann and stretching to the height of Master 
Major. Mirl also accomplished two noteworthy deeds; he took 
everyone's picture, and convinced Marie that he really is true to 
Jewel. The Calloway boys brought scholastic, musical, and social 
distinction to the chapter,

The Lambda Chis drifted through '42 under the doubtful 
guidance of "I never forget anything" Holmes. Freshman Frye 
became a campus personality almost as colorful, though not as 
loud as Wright. The chapter, the dramatic club, and Lorna lost 
Schiek to the army. Cillis teamed up with Stone, and the two had 
a hand in nearly every campus activity.

alone on their cold heights of intellec-

seven scholars of equal ability, and 
they now make Eta Sigma throb with 
the heat of knowledge. There is really 
no conflict between "these" and the 
"other students," but a gentle fusion 
as they try to better the mass. In fact, 
the masses are so proud of the intel- 
ligentia that we looked just like them 
and Dean Works never guessed the 
difference.

Due to war conditions, Mr. Boyd 
Campbell. 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.

This is the organization at which 
all dramatic students look with long- 
ing eyes. Already clustered in this 
club are such talented favorites as 
Schiek and Nichols, the quiet boys. 
The members are carefully chosen 
from the large number of potentials 
in the Dramatic Club. The duties be- 
falling this club are quite elusive but 
always before them is the task of in- 
structing the Dramatic Club, their 
brainchild. Doing this job very thor- 
oughly, as evidenced by the number of 
performances, the club fills in its pro- 
gram by attacking immediate prob- 
lems.

past year. Among thoes who worked hardest were: 
Peeler, Crisler, Turnage, Harris, Nail, and Carter. 
An outstanding event was the M. S. P. A. meeting 
which was held at Millsaps with Editor Rabb as Vice

great evidence of this staff's work. Among those who 
sold many ads and folded and mailed many papers 
were King, Carmichael, Richardson. Smylie, and Bing-

Manager Martin is to be commended for his splen-

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.

At the moment of this writing, there 
are still hopes that Sigma Lambda will 
come through in her own inimitable 
way with the annual varsity show. A 
complete renovation of the Ladies 
Lounge in Murrah Hall put another 
star in the sorority crown last year. 
Deviating from official business, mem- 
bers keep close alumni contacts with 
L. S, U. and Duke. Dinner meetings 
once a month keep appetites subdued, 
tongues limber, and brains exercised.

The cabinet is a group of select Y. 
M, C. A. personalities who officially 
and unofficially run the Y. Meeting 
twice a month, they attend to such 
problems as attendance and programs, 
both of which fluctuate under given 
conditions. 

From these meetings come detailed 
plans for collaborations with the Y. W. 
for such events as Student Body Re- 
treat, or Y Sunday. Big events that 
happened this year were elections and 
the banquet.

The Y. W. C. A. Cabinet this year 
has sparked the organization with 
many ideas and activities. 

Among those started — and com- 
pleted — were the pallet party for all 
girls in school and the work at the 
Bethlehem Center. In co-operation 
with the YM they sponsored student 
retreat, "Y" Sunday, and "Y" banquet.

This newly formed fraternity makes 
an initial bow into the Bobashela with 
an excellent record. The members are 
co-eds who in the future desire to 
teach Johnny his multiplication tables 
and Mary her verbs. During the Mis- 
sissippi Education Association meeting 
many graduates come back and tell of 
the glories of the teaching profession. 
The climax comes with a luncheon 
when the club listens to the true and 
inescapable problems as described by 
a former member.

Alpha Epsilon Delta is the official 
Millsaps honorary pre-med organiza- 
tion. Future physicians and tinkerers 
with the human frame usually get into 
it sooner or later. Bi-monthly meet- 
ings are held, with speeches by out- 
siders. 

A. E. D. has to its credit the yearly 
institution of freshman physical exams, 
and is agitating for a college hospital.

Despite a not-so-subtle slur that 
blossomed out last year, Chi Delta is 
actually a literary organization. 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.

Delta Kappa Delta is an assortment 
of future lawyers and politicians. It 
was organized in '39, and is one of the 
existing pre-law fraternities. It is 
closely connected with the Pre-law 
Club, of which it is the sponsor. Ex- 
hibiting budding political strategy with 
the faculty, the club tapped Dr. Wal- 
lace and Professor Jones this year.

These ladies and gentlemen have a 
shelf all to themselves in the Carnegie 
Millsaps library. It is packed with 
books and pamphlets on the many and 
varied affairs of this patchy old world. 

They know all about the "isms" and 
"ists," They can tell you the prin- 
^cipal product of Argentina and the 
price of eggs in Antarctica. 

Perhaps it won't be wildly exag- 
gerated to say that this gang of long- 
heads contains our future radicals, pol- 
iticians, and economists,

Although they aren't exactly pagan, 
the members ot Eta Sigma Phi try to 
come as close to it as is decently pos- 
sible. Students of the classics who 
escape for three semesters with a B 
average in their chosen language are 
tapped for Eta Sigma Phi. 

The annual Eta Sigma Phi banquet 
is something that must be experienced 
to be described. As we haven't exper- 
ienced it, this leaves us out in the cold 
as regards description of such a lin- 
guistic Tour de force.

Here we present enough reasons for 
any club to have the support of the 
student body. They have beauty, brain, 
and brawn with the accent on brawn 
which does not lessen the first two. 
With monopolistic powers these girls 
guide the intricate destinies of the suc- 
cessful girls intramural program. When 
they dress in full regalia several times 
a year to carry on the duties of the 
club, one realizes the throbbing en- 
thusiasm inspired. Of course, Hettie 
Faye, or Annie Laurin, or Jean, or Sue, 
or any of the rest may never direct 
intramurals and drive convertible 
Fords, but Miss Decell is teaching 
them how.

The ministerial students and those 
interested in religious work band 
themselves together to further their 
aims, and desires. They meet every 
Monday under the guidance of Ellis 
Williamson. Their purpose is to bind 
the group together into a more effec-

already ministers, and have their own 
churches, while the others are kept 
busy with outside projects and regular

These representatives of student 
body support, having been elected this 
or that in some religious organization, 
or having interest enough to be se- 
lected from the student body, manage 
the year round religious program. 

Inaugurating a new and very suc- 
cessful Religious Emphasis Week, the 
council gave evidence of its genuine 
interest in the campus and its desire 
to help. The council encourages dis- 
cussions with students and faculty dur- 
ing the Lenten season. 

There are numerous other smaller 
activities that the council carries out 
in their program which we would miss 
if they were neglected.

Among the most unique and interest- 
ing organizations at Millsaps is the Bee- 
thoven Club. 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.

I feel that there are certain people who deserve special recognition for 
work done and assistance rendered. 

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.

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.

JACKSON 



Millsaps College 
Jackson, Miss- 
June 1, 1942. 
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?

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!

The biology labs have got Venetian blinds now, actually. 
They must not have told Mr. Hat horn until afterwards. I 
bet he had a stroke even then. 

Did you see our "V for Victory" picture in the Collegiate 
Digest in October? Those 8-ball heads made pretty good 
dots and dashes. Who says Mlllsaps doesn't get any publicity? 

And the Fair! 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.

The Buchanan-Calloway affair lasted all first semester, 
and even got to the point of a pinning, but when he left 
for Bowling Green, so did her love. 

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. 
Beta Sigma "We'll be a power on the campus yet" Omicron 
Pi Kappa "There's no such thing as a bad boy" Alpha- 
Kappa "When the going gets tough we can always retreat 

into our own little sHELL" Sigma. 
Phi "What do men count when you can have knowledge" 

Mu. 
Chi "V\/hat does knowledge count when you can have men" 

Omega, 
Lambda Chi "The impartial participation in moderation is 

the foundation of mediocrity" Alpha. 

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 Singers divided their tour this year into two shorter 
ones of a week each, with a few week-end trips scattered 
about. 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. Please 
write soon. 

Love, 
CLARA,
