MILLSAPS -WILSON LIBRARY
Published by the Student Body
Of Millsaps College
A comparatively new member of the Millsaps faculty,
Dr. Charles Donald Caplenor has become almost a
legendary character. To those freshmen who are in-
troduced to the biological world under his dedicated
guidance, and to those majors who find his advice and
counsel so valuable, there seems no question that he
cannot answer. More important to Dr. Caplenor than
the instilling of a vast accumulation of facts in the
minds of his students is that they understand and have
a practical application of what they study. The epitome
of understanding and kindness. Dr. Caplenor inspires
an eagerness to learn and a willingness to study.
Affectionately called "Dr. Cap" by those who regard
him as a friend as well as a teacher, he has done more
than anyone in recent years toward making the biology
department at Millsaps one of the South's outstanding.
Because he has shown an especial devotion to his
profession; because he has given untiringly of his time,
his knowledge, his friendship — we, the editors and
staff members, dedicate the 1961 BOBASHELA to Dr.
Charles Donald Caplenor, "Dr. Cap."

The "parts" of the Millsaps "whole" remain stationary with its
dormitories, its organizations, its classrooms, its traditions. The
doors of Murrah swing open now as they did a decade or two

slightly each year and completely every four.

Tap Day returns, though participants may not, the stairs in Found-
ers sag a little more each year as mute testimony to never ending
door calls, the grill continues to close at ten, mail still arrives
twice a day . . .
The whole is stationary — yet the changing student population
creates a paradoxically throbbing, shifting quality within that
stationary whole. And solely within this quality lies the greatness
the bare parts alone could never possess.
[ 5 ]
Personality of a Population .
The varying personality of passing student generations invariably finds
its most free expression in Union life. The discipline and formalities of the
classroom and office disappear as the Union door is opened and temporarily
the student's goal becomes the fulfillment of his own rather than the school's
The '60-'61 student population has been a many faceted one. There were
"in-groups" enough for everyone, and each provided a different facet of
student personality as reflected in the Union. To some a mealbook will mean
"Union," for others a mailbox. An agonizing decision over which notebook
to buy will be familiar to many and a certain corner booth in the grill will
leave most memories for a few.
Each person has words or phrases, common in usage and meaning, which
to him are special because of the images they evoke of times, places, people,
nearly forgotten. Perhaps, years from now, a former Millsaps student may
suddenly recall tiny incidents, long buried in the inconsistencies of memory,
merely at the mention of "Exodus" . . . cartridge fountain pens . . . ready-
made sandwich . . . "thass steak" . . . eternal potato chips . ■ ■ boarding
plan . . . 10c exchange . . . and so on, ad infinitum.

The Millsaps population would never lend itself
to a single caricature; its characteristic molds are
many rather than one. No one is just a
typical "Millsaps student" — He is, rather, a Sullivan-
Harrell inhabitant, a player, a pseudo-intellectual,
a bridge fiend, or a grill hound. He may be one, he
may be several, but somewhere he "belongs."
The identity groups are numerous, interchangable,
temporary and most uniquely equal. Strangely
enough, no one group has yet become the "right" one
and success remains an individual instead
of a stereotyped goal.

[ 10 ]
Life at Millsaps is dominated by clocks. Clocks, those in the Christian Center
tower, make up the picture most often used to publicize or symbolize the college. ^
The rigid scheduling of classes, so very dependent upon time, becomes as a school \
year passes a framework upon which the individual student builds his own per-
sonal version of the ritual of an ordinary week day at Millsaps. Schedules may
differ according to the student's interests; but the daily routine of a freshman or
a senior, a sociology major or an aspiring musician, is essentially the same for
the very reason that it is a routine.
An ordinary day at Millsaps begins in approximately the same manner for all students — with the insist-
ent ringing of an alarm clock. And the pattern of sameness set into motion by its ringing continues throughout
the day until the clock's owner resets it that night. The route to the cafeteria an individual follows each
morning is unvarying: for the resident of Ezelle it is always a walk of 700 steps, for a Founders Hall resident
it entails careful navigation of treacherous flights of stairs. Clocks become even more important as eight
o'clock approaches. The late-comer to the cafeteria glances constantly at the clock on its east wall and wishes
the line would hurry; wrist watches are frequently consulted in the lounge to see just how long one has to
smoke that last cigarette or look over those last five pages of notes.
After eight o'clock time becomes all important. Ten till the hour is eagerly awaited and anticipated by
furtive glances at watches during lectures. The ten minutes between classes are precious and not to be wasted.
It is during these minutes that one picks up his mail, buys a coke, or simply gossips with the members of
his next class. Tuesday is almost reverenced for its free period; Thursday grumbled at because of chapel.
Thus morning follows morning in the same pattern of classes, bells, breaks, and more classes.
Noon is, in a sense, the "holiest" part of the Millsaps ritual. TTiis is the hour of a mass migration to the
Union. No matter how many times one has checked the bulletin boards, they must be carefully reread "just
in case." Without even realizing it, the student usually has become a member of his own little "luncheon
club," and whether he eats in the grill or cafeteria his companions are the same as the day before.
Conversation is not always stereotyped but whenever two Millsaps students meet there are conversational
conventions that must be maintained. Among these traditions are the listing of how much one has to do,
how bad the food is, and the time-worn declaration, "I think I'll transfer next year."
The Millsaps student, though frequently cited for his individuality, is in some ways a traditionalist and,
despite all, will remain one as long as chapel is required every Thursday and classes resume at eight Monday.
[ 11 ]
[ 12 ]
In a 1960 chapel address Dr. George Boyd aptly described Millsaps College as
"... a college dedicated to the old-fashioned pursuit of ex-
cellence — in moral character, in intellectual discipline, both
within a framework of spiritual encouragement — the pur-
suit, I say, of excellence, not "life-adjustment education,"
not the tt^de-school teaching of technological skills: but a
college dedicated to the values of the ancient liberal arts in
the mid-twentieth century when those values are seriously
challenged by a mechanistic, materialistic civilization which
threatens to devour or destroy them."
The description holds. The public recognizes Millsaps as a "hard" school;
its students affirm that idea and add the word "demanding." Yet the realization
persists that to meet the fullest challenge of Millsaps' instruction is to permanently
alter and enrich an existence.
[ 13 ]
Millsaps, unlike many schools, has few recognized
traditions; there is no Flirtation Walk, no Con-
federate monument, no ancient bell tower.
Her truest traditions are not to be found on a
map or a calendar of events; they are the traditions
which spring directly, if unconsciously, from the
student group and live on to become its legends.
And the most enduring of these legends have been
those of its people.

Among the first of the rigorous tasks of the newly-organiz«
BOBASHELA was the series of elections held during the fall. Tl
excitement that these elections brought to some individuals atoned f
the long hours and the midnight oil consumed during the previoi
weeks in the BOBASHELA office. No doubt, the most entailed pr
ceeding was the nomination of twenty candidates to appear in tl
Parade of Beauties. To hold a practice at a time that is convenie
for twenty co-eds is one of the more impossible feats at Millsa
College. However, with sacrifices on the part of some, all twen
contestants congregated in the Christian Center for a rehearsal.
Whether or not each of the nominees saw the Players' production of "Julius Caesai
the set will long be remembered by all. The greatest shock came with the announceme
that several girls would be expected to float gracefully up ramps and steps that Rom;
soldiers had found difficult to scale. With lengthy instructions and tedious, teeterii
practice, all soon learned entrances, positions, and stances. All that remained was t
anxious waiting for the day of the review.
To increase the contestants' tension, the Feature Staff craftily arranged a coffee
precede the actual review. It was at this time that the judges were given a chance
observe each individual closely. To the experience of the judges the BOBASHELA owi
the success of this coffee. Composing the panel of five were Mrs. J. Paul Faulkner, a form
judge in Atlantic City; M
Frances Jellinek, a form
Rockette at Radio City Mu;
Hall; Mr. Maurice Thompsc
program director at a lo<
[ 28 ]
levision station; Mr. Sam McRae, a prominent Jackson businessman;
id Mr. Phil Irwin, former director of the Miss Mississippi Pageant,
luring the coffee each judge chatted with two nominees for an interval
: time before rotating to another group. This permitted every girl to
icome substantially terrified and the judges to have personal con-
xtions with each candidate. The only element that passed unconsidered
' the judges was the rain-spotted condition of the suits of some girls
bo were caught in a downpour which arrived promptly at the time
iiortly before seven-thirty the night of the twenty-second of November, lofig TR-irts
oped in raincoats or even plastic bags were to be seen sweeping hurriedly over mud
les and rain-drenched sidewalks. The time finally arrived for the initial line-up in
1. Soon twenty lovely contestants delicately arrayed the spot where Caesar had been
ed nights before. Then came the announcement of the ten finalists. Slowly names
read out alphabetically: Mary Frances Angle, Sara Frances Carr, Sally Cunningham,
hia Dubard, Jean French, Betty Ann Maxey, Charlotte Ogden, Ann Perry, Fay
)st, Sandra Rainwater. Each girl appeared on stage to a round of eager applause while
n staff photographers hung precariously from ladders in the wings. Appearances made,
■s convened and adjourned, and a white envelope slipped to the emcee, the top five
ies were announced. Applause, throngs backstage, and many pictures climaxed the
le of Beauties for '60- '6 1;
he actual climax was a good
's rest in twenty beckoning

OMICRON DELTA KAPPA
Omicron Delta Kappa, national leadership honorary for men, places
emphasis upon the development of the whole man. It recognizes and en-
courages achievement in five major phases of campus life: scholarship; ath-
letics; student government, social and religious affairs; publications; and
speech, music, drama, and the other arts. There are five indispensable quali-
fications for membership in ODK, these being exemplary character, respon-
sible leadership, superior scholarship, geniuine fellowship and consecration
to democratic ideals. Membership in Omicron Delta Kappa is a mark of
the highest distinction, honor, and obligation and is the highest honor which
can be attributed to a Millsaps male.

Sigma Lambda is the women's leadership honorary on the Millsaps
campus, representing recognition for distinctive leadership, scholarship, and
service among Millsaps women. Membership in Sigma Lambda is awarded
when a women student meets qualifications of having a 2.0 overall academic
average, a variety of recognized leadership services on the campus, personal
qualities that suggest leadership ability, second-semester junior standing,
and unanimous vote of the members. Founded at Millsaps in 1934 by
Omicron Delta Kappa, Sigma Lambda is maintained as a petitioning group
for Mortar Board. Membership in Sigma Lambda is the highest honor a
Millsaps woman can attain.

With the high quaUfications of Eta Sigma,
being asked to become a member is indeed an
honor. A student must be at least a second
semester junior with a 2.6 or better point in-
dex for his college career to qualify. Mem-

thus obtained this achievement.
Eta Sigma was established at Millsaps in
the 1920's and re-established in 1957.

The single bond common to the entire Millsaps student population is its
membership in the Millsaps College Student Association. Government of this as-
sociation is under the direction of the Student Senate, the collegiate legislative
body composed of elected representatives from the significant constituencies of
students. This group is charged with making necessary rules and regulations gov-
erning the student body as are not covered by law and college rules, and studies
student and campus community problems.
The approval of the Student Senate is required for the apportionment of
the Student Association funds, the granting of charters to student organizations,
and the co-ordination of the social calendar.
Initial study of campus problems is handled through appointive committees
which draw upon the student association for much of their leadership. The role of
these committees in guiding and enriching student life cannot be underestimated.
Among the actively functioning permanent committees the Elections
Committee, headed by the Vice-President of the SEB, is responsible
for the planning, execution, and validity of all student elections. The
Student Union Committee, aiming for fullest utilization of the poten-
tials of the Union Building, works with the Cultural and Educational
Committee in its efforts to bring speakers and entertainers of a high
quality to the Millsaps Campus. While permanent Senate committees
cope with perennial concerns, temporary committees are often formed to
handle specific problems which may arise during the year.
The guiding force responsible for the effective operation of
the Student Association, its Senate, its committees, and its func-
tions, is the Student Executive Board, more familiarly known as
the "SEB." These four people organize and direct the Student
Senate, attend the daily business of the Student Association, and
serve as the official representatives of the Millsaps Student Body.

The Women's Council spwnsors a coffee for new women students early in the fall and also cooperates
with Sigma Lambda and Panhellenic activities.
A Dormitory Council in each of the Women's dormitories meets weekly to deal with infractions of
dormitory regulations and to encourage "happy group living." This council is composed of the dormitory
presidents and two chairmen from each floor of the dorm.
The titular head of the rather complicated (and sometimes misdefined) structure of self-govern-
ment for Millsaps women is the college's Dean of Women, Mrs. Joyce B. Watson. A newcomer to the

The year began with plans, appointment of section edi-
tors, and agonizing decisions, but the annual itself was
still a faraway "something," little less than a neat stack
of blank triplicate sheets. Gradually the staff became fully
integrated as members of the unique society of the Student
Union's second floor, and the first dim outlines of the
BOBASHELA '61 began to take shape. The office, once
merely a room, was slowly starting to reflect the person-
alities of its occupants. A painting of "Homer T.," the
Spanish bullfighter, decorated the wall above the editors'
desk, and "Ecclesiasticus," the rubber tree plant, ruled
supreme on the floor of the inner office.
"In-group" jokes were originated and laughed at for weeks. Philosophical discussions blended with classical guitar
music from the record player, the ringing of the telephone, and the incessant clacking of typewriters; and the BO-
BASHELA '61 began to emerge as more than simply "Volume LV" in a set of yearbooks. At first innovations were
made slowly — some intentionally, some accidently — but the idea of
change gained momentum, and the BOBASHELA '61 grew into almost
imMt- » . 1 3" experiment. One never knew how it would look in type, but one be-
came more and more willing to take the chance.
One of the misfortunes of experimenting with an annual is that one
never gets that second opportunity at improvement. So much time is con-
sumed in the mere planning of a new format that content — though more
important — is often of necessity not given the thought that a previously
established format would afford.
"Bobashela " to a member of the Millsaps college community simply
means "the annual," and those having read their Major Facts carefully
also know that "Bobashela" is an Indian word meaning "good friend."
To the members of its staff the word "Bobashela" has connotations deeper
than that of merely a book, an office, or a group of people. Memories
have shaded its meaning into an abstract.

LIFE OF THE P & W FOURTH ESTATE
The telephone rang its endless rhythm. Finally the sound was smothered
as the receiver was relieved from its base and a voice sounded, "Purple
and White Office."
In the background typewriters clanged noisily, feet scuttered hurriedly
over the floor, department editors muttered explanations, and filing cabinets
slammed, filling the room with noise.
This was just another day in the "room at the top," just another phone
call, the same background, the same people.
The office never ceased to be an arena of frantic students in frantic
moods. Friday deadlines had to be met. How? Burning the Union Building
lights into the morning hours seemed to be the only solution. RS and AC,
as they were editorially known, along with the sports editor, EW, took the
"graveyard" shift. Galleys had to be pasted, headlines written, layouts
News Editors Susanne Batson and Carleen Smith somehow persuaded
the news staff to turn in stories, even though habitually late and some-
times carelessly written. John Perkins served as the "Pean W" copy
machine. Judy Curry reported to the editor every week for her weekend
job report, continually insisting, "Give me more work to do." Jack Ryan
showed up for every picture. Feature Editors Jim Leverett and Twinkle
Lawhon endeavored to keep themselves in hiding. Dudley Crawford lived
in his private darkroom, serving as photographer. Students sometimes fell
in love and Rachael Peden rushed to the scene. Georgie Ann Burgess
occasionally offered a story on girls sports, most often when she gained
a championship for herself. Kay Barret was always ready to read proofs,
write stories, or type.
Nightwatchman, Ernest Worthy, and Janitor, William Green were sort
of P & W mascots.

June 16, 1711
Four times a year a varigated group of campus
citizens undertake the creation of a mythical won-
derland — known more simply as "The Millsaps
Players presents . . ."
The stage in the CC or the "round" in Galloway
Hall is the setting, as a bit of ancient Rome, 18th
Century America or the United States today, as the
case may be, comes to life to the delight of the cam-
pus and playgoer from all over Mississippi. For the
Millsaps Players are Mississippi's most widely known
theatrical group, who have been praised around the
state and nation for their fine and original produc-
tions under the direction of Lance Goss.
The opwning of the 1960-61 school year brought
the Player's production of "Julius Caesar," in which
Eddie Harris, Tink Coullet, Jack Ryan, Tern Fowlkes, Betty Ann Maxey and Betty Denton led a huge cast of toga-clad
Romans through William Shakespeare's classic tragedy. It was an amusing sight to see, backstage, a Roman soldier with a
band-aid on his knee or an emperor lighting a cigarette. The "Caesar" set, designed by Johnny Sullivan and executed by
Georgie Ann Burgess and Rachael Peden, co-stage managers, brought cheers from the audience. And this is certainly to
be remembered: the sets, lighting, make-up, costumes, publicity, sound, and all the other unsung backstage workers are
the solid "body" behind the revealed "soul" of the actor.
'Small War on Murray Hill" followed in December, with Bob Daugherty, Betty Denton, J. T. Noblin, and Gail
Garrison leading the troops to a most amusing battle. "Death of a Salesman," Arthur Miller's Pulitzer Prize winner, was
a big event of the Spring semester.
But it's not just during plays that the Players operate, to wit: The annual backstage Christmas party complete with
Christmas tree and "ballets," the fun with the Jackson Little Theater and the local high school productions, and a thou-
sand and one "soirees" in the grill, at Primes or the Snack, or just whenever two Players get together.
It's fun to be a Millsaps Player, the devoted followers of "the man in the rocking chair" who echoes the sentiments of
them all when he comments, "This may well be a good show!"
The Millsaps Singers, commonly thought of as one choir, is actually composed of three groups which have their own
The Concert Choir, one of the finest college choirs in the South, is selected primarily on the basis of a student's ability to
read and sing music at sight. This choir serves as an instrument that publicizes Millsaps College over the nation as well
as in the state. Throughout the year the choir presents concerts ranging in variety from a popular medley to a concert
Mass. The outstanding event of 1960-61 was the choir's performance of "Carmina Burana," by Carl Orff, with the
Memphis Symphony in Memphis.
Each spring this choir presents a tour program in different churches in Mississippi and other states. The tour is
enlightened by the initiation of all new members and "Tap Night" where SOC, women's "honorary" and the Mother's
Club, men's "honorary," tap the members chosen for this "honor." To its members the Concert Choir breaks all social

organization barriers and forms one of the closest knit of the campus organizations.
The Madrigal Singers, a smaller group of about twenty members is also composed of carefully selected members.
This year a separate organization for the first time, the Madrigals have presented a number of programs at Jackson Civic
Clubs and also sang for the annual Faculty Christmas Party. Under the direction of Mr. Richard Fairbanks this group
serves as a publicity agent for the college in Jackson and other parts of the state.
The Chapel Choir has reached new peaks of perfection this year under the capable leadership of Mr. Lowell Byler.
Open to any Millsaps student who is interested and willing to spend the time, the Chapel Choir provides music for most
of the chapel services. They cooperate with the Madrigals and the Concert Choir each year to present several large works.
The three groups of the Millsaps Singers combine their ranks each Christmas for the "Feast of Carols" and the
annual presentation of Handel's Messiah. This year the groups were combined for the first performance in this area of
"The Passion According to St. Matthew" of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Religion 11 and 12 are required of
all students . . . The courses are de-
signed to give the student an under-

and of the place of organized religion
in life and society.
From the Millsaps
College Bulletin, 1960-61
Religious participation is not required of Millsaps students,
yet religion pervades the campus in many ways. Millsaps is a
church-related college under the joint care and control of the
Mississippi and North Mississippi Conferences of The Methodist
Church. Methodism as a doctrine, however, is not enforced;
during the 1960-1961 session Millsaps numbered in its student
body members of eighteen denominations and in its faculty
members of seven different denominations.
Only two of Millsaps' requirements are associated with religion: Religion 11-12 and Thursday Chapel. Religion
11-12, a non-denominational study of the Old and New Testaments, most often proves an interesting and valuable
Under the sponsorship of the Christian Council, a steering group representing all campus denominational or-
ganizations, the Thursday Chapel program has been developed into a semester-long study, to which guest religious
speakers and faculty symposiums contribute. The study conducted during the fall semester of 1960-1961 was
"Images of Man in Contemporary Society." During the second
semester of each year the Christian Council sponsors a Religious
Emphasis Week in which a guest speaker is invited to conduct
a three day series of activities appropriate to the religious motif.
Each Wednesday morning of the year a service of Holy Com-
munion is conducted in Fitzhugh Chapel by some clerical member
of the faculty.
Members of Christian Council
with Advisor, Mr. Lewis
The Woman's Christian Workers, open to all co-eds interested
in Christian service and especially those going into full-time re-
ligious work, offers its members fellowship, guidance, and the op-
portunity to take part in service projects both on and off campus.
In co-operation with the Ministerial League, the WCW visits
the Old Ladies' Home where the members of the two organiza-
tions conduct worship services. Aside from these weekly visits
members of the group help in other mission areas, two of the
most notable, and certainly the most disparate, being the Friends
of Alcoholics and the Methodist Children's Home.
Programs given at regular meetings concern problems that the
Christian service worker can expect to be confronted with when
she enters the field. The organization also aids its members by
helping them to secure a church-related position after their gradu-
ation and oftentimes during their college years.
A sincere interest in working toward the promotion of Chris-
tian ideals is the only requirement for membership in the Young
Women's Christian Association, which has as its purpose to de-
velop young women into better citizens and Christians.
Individual members "adopt little sisters" from the Methodist
Orphanage and entertain them with suppers and parties during
the year. Another worthwhile activity of the YWCA is its spon-
sorship of the annual Faculty Waiter Night, the proceeds of which
go to the World LJniversity Service.
Meeting twice each month, the organization has programs of
interest to young women on charm, summer jobs, etc. Through its
various activities and services the YWCA provides a fellowship
of many types of girls on one campus.
The Ministerial League, open to pre-ministerial students of
any denomination, enables the pre-ministerial student to learn
about and share common problems facing the ministry and pro-
vides an opportunity for valuable experience through activities
such as local mission service.
All of the Ministerial League's missions are carried on in con-
nection with the WCW, and the two have a joint meeting once
a semester. The Ministerial League encourages its members to go
out to the Methodist Boys Farm and one of its members gives a
devotional at the Old Ladies' Home each week.
Each semester the Ministerial League is responsible for print-
ing the wallet-sized work cards which are handed out during regis-
tration. The League is also responsible for publicity, selection of
judges, and rules of judging of the Galloway Award, given each
year to the pre-ministerial student preparing the best sermon. This
year the main theme of the programs was the human problems of

Each year before Christmas members of Wesley go caroling;
this year they sang at the Methodist and Baptists orphanages and

The theme of most of the programs the first semester was
"Concern of a Growing Church." There were also programs on
mental health including talks by two psychiatrists and a film "Out
of the Darkness;" alcohol; faith healing; and the Church and art.
Other outstanding programs for the year included "J. B." done

Westminster, the religious organization for Presbyterians at Mill-
saps, serves as the connecting link between church and school. West-
minster meets weekly for worship, study, and fellowship; programs con-
sist of cookouts, sings, or speakers, plus a short devotional.
Early in the school year the Presbyterian churches of Jackson spon-
sor a progressive supper to stimulate among Millsaps students an in-
terest in attending Sunday church services at one of these churches and
to increase membership in Westminster.
Officers for this year included Charles Wallace, President; and
Sarah Mclinnis and Patsy Robison, Co-program chairmen.
The Canterbury Association is an organization of students who are
members of the Episcopal Church and affiliated branches of the Angli-
can Communion. Canterbury Association is committed to a program
of worship, study, stewardship, evangelism. Christian social action, and
ecumenicity. Each week Canterbury sponsors a variety of activities,
including a celebration of the Holy Eucharist, Evening Prayer (or The
Litany, in Lent) , and a discussion meeting. The association also is one of
the sponsors of the ecumenical worship services for each week in Lent.
The Chaplain of Canterbury, Father Stephenson, is always available,
to members and non-members alike, for consultation and spiritual
counsel. Through these activities and opportunities the Canterbury As-
sociation works to enrich the lives of its participating members. Officers
for this year included Ted Callaway, Chairman, Jim Rhodes, Vice-
chairman, and Betty Harrell, Secretary.
The Baptist Student Union is a campus organization composed of
Baptist college students. This organization serves as a connecting link
between the Baptist student and his church. Through weekly meetings
BSU attempts to encourage the spiritual growth of Baptist college
students and to challenge them to better Christian living.
Early in the school year the Baptist churches in Jackson sponsor a
progressive supper which includes a tour of the city's Baptist churches.
This event is designed to acquaint the new Baptist student at Millsaps
with churches of his denomination located in Jackson and to encourage
membership in the BSU. Officers for this year included Fred Barfoot,
President, Clara Frances Jackson, Vice-president, and Sandy Aldridge,
The campus religious organization of the Christian Church, Dis-
ciples Student Fellowship, defines its purpose as fellowship, information,
and worship. The members have dicussion and enjoy refreshments fol-
lowing the regular Monday evening programs and worship. In addition,
they have several parties including a special one at Christmas.
The small group emphasizes the fact that meetings are open to
anyone of any denomination. Studies include lessons on the Christian
Church and' on other religions such as Mohammedanism. Helping to
sponsor a child in the Christian Church's orphanage in Atlanta is a
project of the Disciples. .
Officers for this year included Don Adcock, President, Freddie
Bean, Vice-President, and Carolyn Carl, Secretary.
AS A LIBERAL ARTS
Millsaps seeks to give the student adequate breadth and depth of
understanding of civilization and culture in order to broaden his
perspective, to enrich his personahty, and to enable him to think
and act intelligently amid the complexities of the modern world.
The curriculum is designed to avoid premature specialization and
to integrate the humanities, the social studies, and the natural
sciences for their mutual enrichment.
From "The Purpose of Millsaps
College" — adopted by the Facul-
ty and Board of Trustees of
Millsaps College, 1955-1956.
NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION
Weekly trips "to the woods," Big John's camouflage suit, the 5:30 alarm
on Saturday mornings, and more and more of loess and loess — these were
"Special Problems" to those students who participated in a program of un-
dergraduate research sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
It was the aim of five student-faculty teams to describe the plant and
animal communities supported by loessal soils and to determine the chemi-
cal, geological, and physical factors which control and differentiate these
Despite catching their thumbs in the traps, falling down mountains, and
losing trap lines, the zoology team composed of Billy Billups, Gary Boone,
Carter Lewis, and John Woods, under the guidance of Professor R. P. Ward,
did manage to catch a very few animals. A hard day's work of setting 160
traps often resulted in a grand catch of three shrews and a ground squirrel.
Judy Brook, Charlie Hughes, and Anne Regan, members of Dr. Donald
Caplenor's botany research team, found themselves playing such roles as
compass man, DBH taker, or taxonomy expert, as they set out in a noble
attempt to determine the frequency, density, and coverage of various herb,
shrub, and tree communities.
Weekly trips to Kickapoo and Bluff Forest, baking dirt samples, and
reading of hygrometers, temperature charts, and max-mins occupied the time
of Professor Rondal Bell and David Libby as they studied the effects of
climate and soil moisture on the plant communities representative of loessal
To analyze chemically the content of loessal soils was the task of the
chemistry team under the direction of Dr. J. B. Price and Dr. C. E. Cain.
Woody Davis, J. K. Perry, Frazier Ward, and Alice Wells found them-
selves, week after week, doing the same old thing over and over, and ending
up each week with more to do than they had started with.
Dr. R. R. Priddy thought nothing of asking his team of hole drillers
to shinny up a tree, play anchor for a forty-foot pole, or eat peanut but-
ter and sardine sandwiches. Gene Davenport, Russell Lyons, Billy Moore,
Charles Smith, and Don Thompson studied the geological make-up of the

Millsaps College, in keeping with its liberal
arts tradition, requires each of its students to
study a language for at least two years. The
student may choose from a variety of courses
in both the ancient and modern languages.
The student's experience in the language arts
is further enriched by a laboratory which is the
most complete linguistic lab in the state. The
lab is designed to provide practice in the oral
language, with a long-range purpose of en-
abling advanced courses to be taught in the
language itself rather than in English, and
also to facilitate the teaching of conversation
The laboratory, located in Murrah Hall,
contains a master control unit and thirty acoustical-tiled booths equipped with microphones, tape recorders, and earphones.
Student assistants, usually language majors or advanced students, are employed to give instruction or mechanical aid during
the laboratory p>eriod.
Study aids, such as the language laboratory, help to emphasize the languages as valuable tools for the well-rounded
citizen of a world in which international relations are of the utmost importance.
One of the more popular activities associated with the language department at Millsaps is the frequent presentation
of foreign films. All three of the modern languages, French, German, and Spanish, present films of such calibre as
Don Quixote; films are open to all students and are well attended.
Learning activity is combined with fellowship in another aspect of language at Millsaps. The German Students on
campus participate in Deutscher Verein, or the German Club, which is the only organization of its kind at Millsaps. Sptonsored
by Herr John Guest, Deutscher Verein is open to all students interested in Germany and its culture; it seeks to increase
interest in Germany.
Films on Germany, its people, and its culture are an integral part of the programs; meetings are occasionally high-
lighted by guest speakers such as the German Consul from New
Orleans. The high point of the year is the annual Weihnachtsfest or
Christmas Party, which features imported German food, German
dances, and the singing of Christmas Carols in German. There is
no German beer despite requests from the members.
The Millsaps Art Department, under the
supervision of Karl Wolfe, offers basic
courses for those students interested in art.
The Art Shack, an enigmatic legend to the
average Millsaps student, houses in addition
to the more familiar equipment associated
with painting, a kiln and tools for the art
The little recognized but constant and
valuable contributions of Millsaps artists
constitute the sole contact with the graphic
arts for the greater part of the Millsaps Com-
munity. Formal exhibits in the Jackson Art
Gallery and the Student Union, commonly
considered the only showing of Millsaps art,
in reality are only one facet of the myriad
contribution of Millsaps artists. Art creations
pervade every phase of Millsaps activity
through program and cover designs, posters,
and library displays. Many permanent art
pieces of the Student Union originated in the
Millsaps artists and interested art students
have recently organized within the frame-
work of an Art Club in an effort to concen-
trate and enlarge campus art endeavors. This
pooling of interest and talent should hold
marked benefit for both the participating
artists and the campus as a whole. The par-
ticipants will be enriched through regular
discussion meetings and practical criticism
and aid; the campus will reap full benefit of
their work and planned campus art orienta-
tion. The Art Club hopies to begin regular
sponsorship of monthly exhibits by Jackson
artists, occasional speakers in art fields, an
information center, and biennial sales of
local art work.
Forensic activities at Millsaps are rarely recog-
nized as being purely a facet of the Speech De-
partment. Rather the speech program overlaps
with numerous other fields such as politics and
current problems to serve as an integral part of
the annual Youth Congress, debate tournaments,
and Mock Democratic Convention.
Perhaps the main forensic activity engaged in
at Millsaps is debate. The school's debate team
participates in approximately eight tournaments
throughout the year, including the traditional Mill-
saps Invitational Tournament held January 13-14.
Students also compete individually in extem-
poraneous speaking, original oratory, and after-
dinner speaking contests.
During the Youth Congress held in Jackson
December 3-4 Millsaps was more than well repre-
sented by its delegates who captured the Congress's
Sweepstakes Award for the greatest number of
superiors. These awards were given for best de-
bating from the floor, best bills, and best prepared
speeches. Ralph Sowell, Billy Moore, John Perkins,
and Stan Munsey accumulated six awards arhong
Interest in politics rises to a fever-pitch at Mill-
saps as the time for national political conventions
approaches. A Mock Democratic Convention held
in the late spring is the Millsaps version of the
national phenomenon. Posters literally "paper"
the walls of the Student Union; everywhere
amateur politicians push their candidates with
fiery speeches, campaign buttons, and bands. The
climax to the excitement occurs on the last night
of the convention when the students select their
own presidential nominee. Everyone, whether a
speech student or not, has his chance for momen-
tary glory during heated verbal battles fought amid
flags and "hub-bub." Despite general confusion,
frayed tempers, and, as often as not, intrigue,
both the Mock Conventions which have been held
have selected exactly the same candidate that the
Democratic Party was to choose months later.
Sociology students participating in a survey.
The social sciences, as one Millsaps pro-
fessor characterized them, are a study of
"the here and now." This aspect of the
social sciences — sociology, psychology, poli-
tical science — is constantly emphasized by
programs which allow the students to actual-
ly do research pertinent to their major
subject. The research, conducted through the
social science department, is usually of a na-
ture involving interviews and surveys. This
type of research provides the student not
only with experience in his field, but with an opportunity to make contacts with all the strata of society — contacts vital to the
training of a capable social scientist. In psychology, individual research, although supervised, is done almost exclusively by the
psychology student himself. This type of research permits a student to pursue in greater depth subjects personally interesting
him, and is often a means by which the individual can demonstrate his own ingenuity in structuring experimental situations.
At Millsaps, research programs, designed to give a student experience in the actual application of the social sciences, com-
bine with solid academic preparation in the classrooms yielding the student the background necessary for a field which, like the
world he studies, is ever changing.
The ultimate psychological phenomena
Psychology student administers an I.Q. test to a preschool age child.
An activity associated with academics at Mill-
saps perhaps involving more students than any
other is that of practice teaching. During a single
school year approximately one eighth of the stu-
dent body participates in the school's practice
teaching program. In order to satisfactorily com-
plete the course — a six hour one — each student
must spend fourteen weeks in a Jackson school,
observing, grading papers, aiding his supervising
teacher, and most important of all, actually teach-
ing for a minimum of sixty hours. Often termed
by education majors "the most exciting course,"
practice teaching is rewarding, yet a demanding
experience. Each student teacher must learn his
individual pupils and be able to teach them; his
progress is closely charted by supervising teachers
who send weekly reports to the education depart-
ment at Millsaps.
In an age when education has passed from the
realm of the desirable to that of the expedient,
a practice teaching program such as Millsaps' is
an invaluable asset to the young man or woman
preparing to enter the teaching profession.

different organizations slowly reconvene for the pre-rush workshops.
Recommendations are read, sororities polish their skits, and last
minute arrangements are made.
Suddenly September becomes a reality. Paternal goodbyes are
mingled with the click of shears which make sure that a freshman
is different. This is the Greek's time of year — this is rush.
A freshman hardly has time to find his way around the campus
before he is bombarded with the schedules, small talk and smiles that
constitute Greek rushing. For him the week is an ever changing
kaleidoscope of unknown faces and nervous formalities; for the ac-
tive it is four agonizing days of indecision and mounting tension.
Then it's over — there is a clatter of high heels; a crowd of white
dresses which slowly divide into four groups, each going a different
direction, perhaps a few tears; but rush is gone . . . until next year.

A pledge's first adventure as a member of the Greek world
is the annual IFC Greek Night Dance. The simple little pin
that he wears becomes for him, as the night wears on, a symbol
of pride — a symbol of his first step toward belonging to an
organization whose bonds of membership, extending beyond
his graduation from college, will be his for the rest of his life.
After the newness of the hoards of pledge pins wears off,
the Greeks settle down to their timeless, yet ever new activities.
The practice field rings with cheers, "Get 'em! Gimme 'un
S . . . .!" as the fraternities vie for speedball honors. Sororities
journey to the fraternity houses to introduce their new pledges
and present skits, which, though hardly dramatic masterpieces,
are fun anyway.
There is a hushed murmer of voices outside, a girl slips
through a dormitory door to stand shyly outside on its
porch, torches are lighted ... a fraternity is serenading a
girl who has recently accepted "the symbol of its creed,"
a girl who is pinned to one of its members. This ceremony
is one of the most sentimental and certainly one of the most
colorful of all Greek traditions at Millsaps. What differ-
ence does it make if they sing "Honeymoon" or "KA Rose?"
These are the bulwarks of Millsaps' traditions; these are
Mix laughter, music, subdued lights . . . sometimes seasoned with
ridiculous costumes or even formal dress . . . the result? A Greek
party. Greek entertainment is as varied as the Greeks themselves.
Their parties, ranging from the uninhibited merriment of a hayride
or a "rinky-dink" on the Trace to the reserved pageantry of a formal
sweetheart ball, are frequent and always well attended. The Greeks
need little reason for a party; they celebrate everything, anything —
whether it be their founding or the Vernal Equinox, the end of exams,
or simply the fact it's the weekend.

1960-61 have been without the Greeks to contribute
to the traditions and activities that compose a Mill-
saps year? Song Fest, one of the outstanding an-
nual events at the college, is Greek-sponsored;
Stunt Night, always well attended and invariably
hilarious, depends wholly upon Greek participation.
Social life on the campus would be practically
non-existent without the innumerable Greek parties
which crowd the weekends of the SEB activity
calendar. Scholarship? The competition between
social groups for ODK's scholarship trophy, the
constant pressure on pledges to ". . . make those

to the high scholastic standards maintained at Mill-
saps. And who could imagine a Millsaps election

BETA SIGMA OMICRON
"Mizoo," better known to Mississippians as the University of
Missouri, is the site of the 1888 founding of Beta Sigma Omicron,
now represented in this state by the Alpha Zeta Chapter at Millsaps.
Every spring the Beta's stage an annual exodus to the Gulf Coast
where they throw their traditional "Sunburn Party." After observing
some of the sisters on their return from this event, the party has some-
times been mistaken as an attempt at the reinstitution of the sovereigni-
ty of the great American Indian. More formal entertainment is found
at the Ruby and Pink Ball where all loyal perusers of the Urn gather
to see which one will be named Pink Lady, a title which supposedly
has no connection with a delightful beverage of the same name.
Honoraries claim a number of BSO members: Alpha Psi Omega
has Sandy Aldridge as secretary and Sigma Lambda funds are closely
guarded by treasurer Irene Fridge who is also Eta Sigma veep and
Theta Nu Sigma reporter. IRC's records are kept by Secretary
Carolyn Shannon, while Carol Malone wields the Majorette Club's
president's gavel. Beta's are also active in campus religious groups.
Wesley is led by prexy Shannon and Sandy Aldridge serves as secre-
tary-treasurer of B.S.U. Women's Christian Workers boasts four
BSO officers: Betty Lou Tynes, president; Mary Louise Strickland,
vice-president; Judy Monk, secretary; and Faith Craig, treasurer.
Because the BSO Founder's Day, December 12, is so near Christ-
mas, the Beta's have traditionally served egg nog at this event, a fact
which has given rise to numerous speculations on the content of their
"Beta-Brew." Another tradition annually observed is the pledge-ac-
tive spend-the-night party held at the BSO house. It is during this
soiree that "Pledge Award Night" is held. Each pledge receives an
"award" of rather dubious value, and the ceremony is highlighted by
the selection of a "Skank Lady," the pledge counterpart of the Pink

The wise old owls of Chi Omega descended on the Millsaps campus
in a cloud of cardinal and straw in 1934, thirty-nine years after their
founding at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Since that date the Chi O's have gained fame for their favorite bird
with the annual election of an "Owl Man." Pete Dorsett presently
holds this highest of all ornithological honors.
Next to the owl, Chi O is most frequently associated with a bridge,
not the Goren type, but a white, wooden bridge which crosses the abyss
separating the Chi Omega's little forest cottage from North President
Every honorary in which women are eligible for membership is
represented in the rolls of Chi Omega. In all there are thirty-six hon-
orary members in the fraternity. Gayle Graham is currently serving
as president of Sigma Lambda, while Linda Cooper is Kappa Delta
Epsilon prexy. Others holding leadership positions are Barbara But-
ler, secretary-treasurer of the sophomore class, and Billye Dell Pyron,
president of the Panhellenic Council.
Four Chi Omega's were honored with places in Who's Who. They
are: Nina Cunningham, Gayle Graham, Martha Ray, and Linda
Cooper. The girls who wear the "X in a Horseshoe" (often. rendered
with variations) were well represented in the 1960 Homecoming Court
by maids Nina Cunningham, Ann Oliver, and Marilyn Stewart.
In good keeping with Greek tradition, the Chi O's celebrate the
coming not only of spring, but of fall too, with a semi-annual Eleusin-
ian, based, it has been rumored, on ancient Hellenic rites whose original
purpose has been somewhat obscured by time.

ties, and changing the national emblem from the American eagle to

Aside from AOT (rumored as meaning "Always on Time") the
letters dearest to the heart of a Millsaps KD are PU-42, the serial
number of the chapter's beloved nickel coke machine. Mu chapter,
which came to Millsaps in 1914, has gained some measure of fame (or
infamy) for the frequency with which they sing K-A double P-A, an
old KD song usually rendered at about 40 decibels of sound at the
most inappropriate times.
Kappa Deltas honor the colors green and white. These emerald
and pearl wearers number among their more famous members Sara
Webb, Miss Millsaps and Secretary of the Student Body. Two fra-
ternity sweethearts, Fay Prevost, Pike Dream Girl, and Barbara Helen

A familiar voice at all Millsaps football games for the past three

and Who's Who have a KD enrollment of three: Lucy Hamblin, Char-

Despite screams of President Ogden to the effect, "That is not

which occupies a prominent place on the trophy shelf along with their
1960 Song Fest cup.
Though cloaked in a deep dark cloud of Hellenic secrecy, the
dagger, proudly displayed by all Kappa Delta's, is the symbol most
speculated upon in connection with KD. Every year the rumor spreads
that a "Dagger Man" is expected to be crowned (or stabbed) , but so
far, the event has yet to take place.

Founded at Millsaps in 1914, Phi Mu Fraternity was then at the
ripe old age of sixty-two, having begun life at Wesleyan College on
March 4, 1852. Epsilon of Phi Mu, finally submitting to progress,
recently traded its famous stepping stones for a modern concrete side-
walk; and now shines forth as a home in the woods for the lovers of
the rose and white.
Phi Mu points with pride to its homecoming queen. Cherry Miller,
and maid, Shirley Ann Carr. In other fields Rachael Peden, while not
acting as a stage manager for the Players, serves as Purple and White
Society Editor. A Phi Mu prominent in the annals of Millsaps the-
atrics is Betty Denton, who starred in the Players' 1960 production of
"Small War on Murray Hill."
A time-honored custom of Phi Mu is its annual Faculty Tea, an
afternoon gathering held each fall. Another classic tradition is re-
hearsed each year at Song Fest when the girls who love the Enchantress
Carnation appear clad in their renowned pastel dresses. This multitude
of colors sometimes provides opportunity for comments about "Rain-
bow Girls," but more often than not, it lends beautiful staging to the
Phi Mu's commendable singing. And why shouldn't it be commend-
able? Seven of "Les Soeurs Fideles" were chosen for the 1960-61 Con-
Ella Lou Butler, senior class treasurer, was selected to appear in
Who's Who In American Colleges and Universities. Another Phi Mu
holding dual honors is Ruth Tomlinson, secretary of the Social Science
Forum and President of Alpha Psi Omega.
After deciding to save some money by "doing it themselves," the Phi
Mu's embarked on a brick-laying program which normally should have
resulted in an ordinary, everyday, level patio. Due, no doubt, to the
fact that Millsaps offers no courses in masonry, the end product of the
project was a three level masterpiece in brick. "Modern abstract art,"
the Phi Mu's claim.

First a Rebel yell, the rousing strain of "Dixie," then Methodist
Hill was taken by the grey-clad legion of Kappa Alpha Order, the
first fraternity to make an appearance on the Millsaps campus. The
"Southern Gentlemen" of Kappa Alpha claim Robert E. Lee as their
spiritual founder, and decorate their North West Street dwelling ac-
cordingly with numerous portraits of the "gen'ul", Rebel flags, and
other relics of bygone days.
Kappa Alpha's Number 1 (president to outsiders) , Gary Boone,
divides his time between serving as president of ODK and IFC, while
Ralph Sowell, the Millsaps counterpart of Clark Kent, edits the P 8C
W. Kappa Alpha boasts two class presidents, freshman Emryce Stine
and senior Charles Wallace.
The men who honor the crimson rose excel in spectacular enter-
tainment. The most famous, by far, of all their parties is the Old
Soiith Celebration, a biennial event at which all KA's who are lucky
(or old) enough sport beards and Confederate uniforms, stage a
parade down Capitol Street, and temporarily secede from the Union.
Cheerleaders Atkinson and McKeithen help Millsaps fans to cheer
on the twenty-odd KA's participating in sports, and in less athletic
pursuits, eight followers of the stars and bars sing in the Concert Choir
and two in the Madrigals.
The KA's, in accordance with their preservation of the traditions
of the old South, seek to imitate, among other historic institutions, the
Confederate Army by maintaining the largest fraternity on campus.

"Gimmea S-I-G-M-A, Put 'emtogether 'nwhadyagot?" Termites,
tradition, and a Millsaps fraternity, the irrepressible Sigs.
Kappa Sigma is famed for its contribution to Millsaps' athletics,
especially on the gridiron. This year Alpha Upsilon once again sup-
plied the Major meatheads with a goodly number of candidates.
Though its tradition of walking off with the speedball crown was
shattered this year (for the above reason, of course) the chapter has
supplanted their letdown with Pete Dorsett's superior intellectual and
Chi Omega achievements — that's short for Owl Man, 1961 model.
Tearing up tradition only began there. Sigma is now actively
participating in dramatics and choir. The annual Song Fest is another
Sig forte — just because they've never won doesn't mean they can't sing.
Tradition has been maintained in Kappa Sigma's representation in
honoraries such as Alpha Epsilon Delta, Eta Sigma, and Eta Sigma
The Sigs reside at 1400 North West Street, an address which,
they claim, is definitely symbolic; for only the elite know that the 1400
signifies the date of the fraternity's founding at the University of
Bologna, Bologna, Italy.
The crescent and the star are the symbols honored by every Sig,
and their wagons are hitched to that star as they merrily ramble on-
ward, upward, and sometimes astray.

LAMBDA CHI ALPHA
It might be a blaring trumpet, or shouts of "Take A Miss," but
there's never a dull moment at 434 Marshall Street. The scholarship
trophy sits on the mantle in the living room as mute testimony to the
vice-president's threats if "those grades aren't brought up." Pledges
hold work sessions and plan entertainment for the sororities that come
visiting. Upstairs in a corner room, the president and treasurer of the
Millsaps student body share the "sancto sanctorum" and dare anyone
to enter without proper supplication at the threshold. The Crescent
Ball, an annual Spring event, presents an opportunity for the brothers
to display the purple, green, and gold across their chests.
Sports (always the bridesmaid). Stunt Night (they proudly dis-
play the bucket) , and Singing (some day a comeback in Song Fest)
are among the activities of the Lambda Chi's. ODK claims Carney
and Mooney, and Ryan and Whitwell join the pair in Who's Who.
Ryan claims he's a big man in Players and Publications, but no one
really believes it. Whitwell helps to lead the Majors on the gridiron,
and a few members who'll remain nameless lead the Majors to the DB.
Open houses, parties, shrimp suppers and all the rest highlight the
social year and a Lambda Chi party is always quite a ball.
The group prides itself on its stereotype — no stereotype. Millsaps
knows that the Lambda Chi's are on campus — and sometimes, they
know there's a campus.

PI KAPPA ALPHA
"He rambled 'till he got the colors on . . . ." The colors are garnet
and gold; the fraternity, Pi Kappa Alpha. In 1905, thirty-seven years
after its 1868 founding at the University of Virginia, PiKA arrived at
Millsaps. Since then the residents of 424 Marshall Street have been
well represented in campus activities, politics, and honoraries.
Omicron Delta Kappa claims three Pikes, Charles Ricker, Harmon
Lewis, and Don Fortenberry, while Alpha Epsilon Delta has as its
vice-president Woody Davis.
In the party line the Pikes are master hosts. Their annual Cotton
Ball is the scene of the traditional crowning of a Dream Girl. At
another time during the year the Pikes give an "Old North Ball,"
which features good entertainment, but a rather shady origin.
Pike songs are memorable; first there's the questioning "How'd
You Like to be a Pi KA?", then there's always "Honeymoon." As it
turns out "Honeymoon" is a very apropos due to the usual status of
the majority of the chapter's members. A few of the more cultural
members of the group hold in reverence another song, "From Mother's
Arms to Korea."
Each Christmas the Pikes play Santa as well as host to a group of
the children from the Methodist Home. The members and their dates,
in addition to giving each child a gift, entertain them for several hours.

The Panhellenic Council of Millsaps College, an ac-
tive member of the National Panhellenic Conference,
strives to further active cooperation and understanding
among the sororities, non-sorority women and the College.
The council is composed of the presidents and two
representatives from each sorority. Officers are selected
on a rotation system which places each senior delegate in
office for a year. 1960 officers are Billye Dell Pyron, Presi-
dent; Carol Malone, Vice-President; Senith Couillard, Sec-
retary; Lynda Grice, Treasurer.
Panhellenic's principal project concerns the establish-
ment and supervision of rushing rules, and regulation of the
bid system. As a pre-rush project Panhellenic edits each
summer a Panhellenic Handbook of rush rules and hints,
mailing copies to all prospective women students.
In accord with the aims of the National Panhellenic
Conference, the Millsaps Council strives to promote fine
intellectual achievement and scholarship, to maintain high
social standards, and to promote worthy projects.

Inter-fraternity Council, the coordinating body of the
four social fraternities on the Millsaps campus, is designed
to further social fraternity relations at the College, to imify
fraternity action with regard to common problems, and to
act as a medium in cooperation between the college and
the individual fraternities. The main duty of the Council
is carried out each year in the planning, setting up, and en-
forcement of rules for fraternity rush. Through the co-
ordination of activities, the Inter-fraternity Council tends
to unite the fraternities in a spirit of friendly brotherhood.
The membership of IFC is composed of two elected
representatives from each fraternity. Officers are selected
by a rotation system which places a delegate from each
fraternity in office for a year. 1960 officers are Gary
Boone, President; Ryan Grayson, Vice-President; Joe Whit-
well, Secretary; Marvin Pyron, Treasurer. Dean Edward
Collins advises the group.

Bob Schloredt An Ace, But How
About Larry Marett Of Millsaps?
WE SEE BY the newspapers where Larry Mar-
ett, former three-sport star and standout at Millsaps
College, is scheduled to join the Amory High staff
Monday as head baseball coach and assistant coach
in football. '
A 1959 graduate of Millsaps,
Marett has been serving as an
assistant coach at his alma
mater in both football and
basketball while takmg some
work necessary to complete re-
quirements for a teaching cer-
tificate. (He was accepted as
a student at the University of
Mississippi Medical School af-
ter finishing Millsaps, but
changed his mind and decided
to go into the coaching field).
Now there is nothing sensa-
tional, of course, about a young
man who wa.s a stellar athlete
in college deciding to become a
coach, but a perusal of Marett's
record at Millsaps, plus due
consideration for other perti-
nent facts, proves that this 22-
year-old Mississippian, who
hails from Sardis, is exception-
al, to say the least.
Remember several weeks ago
when Bob Schloredt, the Uni-
versity of Washington quarter-
back, was presented with a
Presidential Citation for
"achieving athletic greatness
despite a physical handicap?"
Schloredt is almost wholly
blind in one eye because of an
injury suffered from a fire-
cracker explosion when he was
a boy. Despite that handicap,
he developed into an All-Amer-
ica quarterback and paced his
Washington Huskie team-mates
to two Rose Bowl victories.
But how about Maretf? The
former Millsaps ace lost the
sight of one eye — completely—
when he was in the second
grade. But because he loved
athletics and because he had
ambition, determination and all
the other qualities necessary to
overcome adversity, he be-
came one of the finest all-round
athletes, and students, to ever
wear the Purple and White of
High School, Junior College Star |
AS A NINTH-GRADER at
Sardis, Marett played football,
baseball and basketball, and
in his senior year he was chos-
en as the school's most out-
His next stop was Northwest
Junior College at Senatobia,
where he excelled as a quar-
terback in football, as a guard
in basketball, and as a pitcher
Then he entered Millsaps,
where he earned six letters in
two years — two each in foot-
ball, basketball and baseball—
and garnered the top athletic
trophy when he was chosen as
the recipient of the Harvey T.
Newell Award, which goes to
the foptball player chosen as
most valuable, "on and off the
His outstanding work at Mill-
saps, however, was not limit-
ed to the field of athletics. He
majored in chemistry and
made excellent grades, served
as president of his senior class,
was tapped by student leaders
for membership in Omicron
Delta Kappa, and was named
by the faculty to Who's Who in
American Universities and C(J-
It is true, of course, that
Marett did not quarterback a
two-time wfnner in the Rose
Bowl, and also did not win All-
America laurels. But in our
book he is the tops — as an
athlete, as a student and as a
leader — and if Schlor'Hlt de-
served a Presidential Citation
for "achieving athletic great-
ness despite a physical handi-
cap," then we figger that Larry
deserves three: one for ath-
letic greatness, one for scholar-
ship accomplishment and one
for demonstrated leadership
Millsaps Varsity Sports Look Up
With New Program Being Initiated
While Millsaps offers no apology for its sports program, and has none to offer in view of its policy, its teams do like to re-
ceive the credit they deserve. Certainly no one would wish to sacrifice Millsaps' academic standing to a winning athletic program.
Millsaps has never been afraid to be different. The fact that the school is one of an increasingly small number to have a non-
subsidized program only makes it harder to compete on an even basis.
But neither does the college use this as an excuse to try. In the past few years it has staged an intensive campaign to attract
athletes who are also good students. Results are beginning to show and will do so increasingly, it is predicted, as the idea catches
on. Many young men who love sports are equally interested in obtaining a good education, and in playing without the pressure often
caused by athletic scholarships.
On paper the future is bright;
KS .. .
reality has a different story,
Football Future Looked Bright
but Millsaps has no apologies.
Athletes Deserve Praise
Millsaps does have praise for its men who are
never too proud to accept defeat and whose determ-
ination is unaffected by defeat of public opinion. A
good sportsman will love the game for its own sake
and not solely out of a desire for victory. He shall
remember that it is more difficult to give his best to
a losing team than to one which is all victorious. This
is the Millsaps way.
"■'Perhaps the mos*" important reasons for the optimism on the part of Millsaps coaches
are the moves made this year in scheduling and recruiting.
The difficulty experienced by the College in scheduling games with teams adhering to
similar standards regarding subsidization of athletes is well known. With the demise of the
Dixie Conference, several of Millsaps' long time opponents felt it necessary to follow the
lead of other schools and employ scholarship offers to spur recruiting. Millsaps held the line
— no discrimination for or against athletes in the matter of financial aid. The results in
recent years have been less than desirable as far as scores are concerned.
Next year, for the first time in several years, every college on the Majors' schedule, ex-
cept one, will either be totally non-subsidized or not far from it. Howard and the University
of Tennessee (Martin Branch) will be replaced by Maryville (Tennessee) and College of
the Ozarks (Arkansas) , two ^resbyterian schools.
As scheduling improves, ttie coaching staff expects the new recruiting program to be
yielding big dividends. The combination can only mean better days for the "studies first
and athetics second" Majors.
The 1960-61 season marked the final year at Millsaps for
Coach Marvin G. "Erm" Smith. Coach Smith joined the Mill-
saps faculty in 1954 as assistant football and head basketball
coach; he has served as head football coach since 1958. He
announced his resignation at the beginning of the second semes-
ter, 1961, effective at the close of the school year.
Through his guidance Millsap>s athletes have been encouraged
toward the ideals of Christian sportsmanship; they have been
taught to love a game for its own sake and not solely by a desire

The M Club consists of all students who have been awarded the official
letter "M" in intercollegiate athletics. The club meets every two weeks in the "M"
room located in Buie Gymnasium. Its purpose is to assist in the promotion of
wholesome intercollegiate athletics as well as intramural sports. It fosters the com-
petitive idea and Christian behavior in sports.
Denny Britt served as president of the M Club for the 1960-61 session with
Eldridge Rogers as vice-president and Bill Crosby as secretary-treasurer.
The M Club conducts initiation for new members.
While results of the 1960 Football
season fell short of expectations, there
is cause for optimism about the future.
Key factor in the less than impres-
sive 1-1-6 season was the situation at the
quarterback position — one made to order
for producing king-size ulcers among the
members of the coaching staff. Out of
four candidates for the quarterback posi-
tion, not one had any previous college
experience. So the Majors had to "grow
their own." Led by Pat Barrett, Lexing-
ton, and Don Mitchell, Cleveland, the
four freshmen made encouraging prog-
ress and showed great promise for fu-
Bright spots on the 1960 record were
the 3 to victory over Southwestern,
a 6 to 6 tie with Harding College, and
a fine performance against highly re-
garded Austin College and the nation's
Number 2 small college passer, Austin
quarterback Bo Miller. Losses to heavily
subsidized Howard, the University of
Tennessee (Martin Branch) and Livings-
ton State were regretted but were no
surprises. Defeats at the hands of Sewanee
and Maryville were the season's biggest
If bowl bids are to be considered
"good things," then an old saying about
their arrival in pairs was validated on the
Methodist Hill. Not one, but two invita-
tions to play in post season bowl games
were received by the Majors. A bid ex-
tended by Stuttgart, Arkansas', Rice Bowl
officials to meet Henderson State CoUege
came just a day or so after Head Coach
Marvin G. Smith had accepted an invitation
to play Maryville College in the first an-
nual Space Bowl in Huntsville, Alabama.
Despite leading by substantial margins
in first downs, yards gained rushing, yards
gained passing, and pa,ss interceptions. Mill-
saps lost to the Scotties 19 to 0.

Coach James A. "Jim" Montgomery became a
member of the Millsaps department of athletics in
1959, bringing to Methodist Hill a program of organ-
ization which brought immediate needs and long range
views near reality.
Montgomery is a man of thoroughness and foresight.
His effective leadership i n directing the basketball,
tennis, men's intramural, and other related athletic pro-
grams of Millsaps prove his initiative.
He is associate professor of physical education and
holds his doctorate in education. Next year Dr. Mont-
gomery will assume the title of Athletic Director.
