"Colleges survive as islands of light 
across the nation. The young ones strug- 
gle toward accreditation; the old ones 
to keep their place, or better the order 
in achievement and endowment." At the 
same time they are cultural centers of 
their states, patrons of the arts and 
sciences. Millsaps is the epitome of high 
ideals and educational standards in this 
area— a light for her sister institutions. 
Illuminating the entire campus, her 
gleam is like all lights in one respect: it 
is not made up of a single ray, but it is 
instead a combination of many lights 
which in themselves symbolize the in- 
trinsic qualities of Millsaps.

In all levels of society there is one individual who rises 
above the masses. Each person elects his own course in his 
attempt to achieve greatness, and each has his own reason 
for choosing that course. The man at Millsaps who has achiev- 
ed this height of greatness in the hearts of both the students 
and the faculty is the person to whom we the editor and staff 
of the 1965 Bobashela dedicate our yearbook. 

He is the man who commands the respect of all, whether he 
is joking with friends in the grill or seriously counseling a 
student concerning some academic or social problem. He 
is the man whom the girls adopt as their "father away from 
home." He is a brother to. the boys. Few have achieved the 
sincere respect and immense popularity that this man has. 

Every new day brings many surprises from the student 
body, but he is patient. In ways which we cannot trace he 
guides us from our first day on campus through graduation. 
He sees each of us as "promising products" of society, even 
though we do not as yet have our final coats of paint and 
varnish. He wants only the best for us and is satisfied with only 
the best from us. 

Because we respect him as he respects us, we honor in the 
1965 Bobashela— Mr. John H. Christmas, Dean of Students.

Dr. Benjamin Graves Assumes 
Presidential Duties at Millsaps 

Dr. Benjamin B. Graves, occupant of the Milner Chair of 
Industrial Economics in the School of Commerce and Business 
Administration at the University of Mississippi, took over as 
president of Millsaps College in February. 

Dr. Graves succeeded Dr. Homer Ellis Finger, Jr., who 
was elected a bishop in the Methodist Church in July after 
12 years as Millsaps' chief executive. 

Dr. Graves taught at Louisiana State University, advancing 
from the rank of part-time instructor to assistant professor in 
the three years of his association with the university. In 
1962 he became associate professor at the University of 
Virginia, remaining there until last August. 

Born in Soso, Mississippi, Dr. Graves is married to the 
former Hazeline Wood. The couple has three children, Ben, 
Janis, and Cynthia.

Government Selects Library 
for Documental Depository 

Near the close of the session of 1905-1906 An- 
drew Carnegie offered to give the college $15,000 
for a library building if the trustees would provide 
an endowment of an equal amount. The endow- 
ment required was given by Major Millsaps. The 
Millsaps-Wilson Library now has the honor of being 
a partial depository for government documents. 

The library system offers the resourses of 47,000 
books, pamphlets and reports filling eight file draw- 
ers, 125 maps, 70 phonograph records, and subscrip- 
tions to 400 periodicals. The library will accom- 
modate 200 students who have free access to the 
books and periodicals— a privilege made possible by 
an honor system. 

The library staff consists of four full-time pro- 
fessional librarians and of assistants, two members 
of a clerical staff and ten student workers.

Courses Stress Intellectual 
Consideration of Situations 

Contributions of ancient civilizations, atrocites of 
the French Revolution, Americanism of 1776, prin- 
ciples of constitutional law— these are some concerns of 
the Department of History at Millsaps. 

History courses have been so planned that the 
student may follow the causal relationship in human 
development. Upon a thorough factual foundation 
emphasis is placed on the progressive organization 
of social, intellectual, and moral ideas of peoples 
and nations. In the approach to an understanding 
of historical phenomena, literature, religion, racial 
factors, economic conditions, and social institutions, 
as well as forms of government, are considered.

English Department Instills 
Appreciation of Literature 

Emphasizing creativity while instilling in students 
an appreciation of great literature of the world, 
the Department of English has three major pur- 
poses: to give all students proficiency in the writing 
of clear and correct English; to give to all who wish 
to pursue electives in this department a deep under- 
standing and appreciation of selected authors and 
periods of literature,- and to provide, for those who 
wish to teach or to enter graduate school, adequate 
preparation and a thorough background for specializ- 
ed study. 

In addition, the English Department had this year 
an added intellectual outlet. Miss Eudora Welty, 
the first lady of contemporary American letters, 
agreed to accept the first Writer-in-Residence posi- 
tion at Millsaps for the 1964-1965 session. Miss Welty 
conducted a semi-weekly seminar on the art of 
fiction. She also presented one lecture-reading per 
term, which was open to the public. At her winter 
lecture she spoke on "The Southern Writer Today" 
before a near-capacity crowd at the Christian center.

Language Studies Encourage 
SpiritOf World-wide Interest 

The most distant country has become a next-door neigh- 
bor in this era of jets and rapid communication. With such 
propinquity, the study of foreign languages has reached 
new heights in importance. At Millsaps each student is 
required to take two years of a foreign or an ancient 
language. Courses are offered in French, German, Spanish, 
Italian, Latin, and Greek. 

The ideas and culture of Greece and Rome live on 
today in their contributions to the culture of western civiliza- 
tion. The study of Greek and Latin, languages which com- 
pose so much of all other languages, affords a rigorous 
exercise in the scientific method, producing habits and re- 
flexes of accuracy, efficiency, and system. 

The German and Romance Language Departments have 
been set up to give those students taking their language 
requirement a firm basis in grammar and an introduction 
to the literature of this language. For majors in either of 
the departments, courses have been designed to give the 
student a broad and basic conception of the great literature 
and history typical to the language. The language depart- 
ment has attained vitality with the addition of electronic 
equipment. Now in operation for the fifth year, the equip- 
ment consists of a master control unit and recorders, micro- 
phones, and earphones in separate acoustical-tiled booths. 
Students are required to meet language lab at least one 
hour each week in addition to class time. The equipment 
enables the student to hear recordings in the language 
he is studying. With the basic study of pronunciation and 
vocabulary becoming a matter for individual study and for 
laboratory drill sessions, classroom time is left free for 
concentration on structure and grammar.

Religion Courses Assist 
In Building Of Beliefs 

It may sometimes appear that religion is in 
danger of being forced to satellite importance 
by mighty Science, while the world, intent on its 
race for power through science, forgets another 
kind of power: God. While most people forget, 
Millsaps does not. 

Millsaps College, as an institution of the Metho- 
dist Church, seeks to be a genuinely Christian 
college while believing that religion is a vital part 
of education and that education is an integral part 
of the Christian religion. The courses in religion 
here are designed to give the student an under- 
standing and an appreciation of the Bible and of 
the place of organized religion in life and in 
society; to help students develop an adequate 
personal religious faith; and to prepare them for 
rendering effective service in the program of the 

Millsaps requires six hours of religion for gradua- 
tion. The seventeen courses in this department under 
the guidance of Assistant Professor Robert B. Anding 
and Assistant Professor Robert Wiley Lewis III 
include The Story of the Old and New Testaments, 
The Teachings of Jesus, The Prophets, The Life of 
Paul, The Work of the Pastor, Comparative Re- 
ligion, and The Organization of the Church. 

Sociology, Psychology Teach 
Man To Understand Himself 

Two sciences which do not have laboratories with test tubes and 
Bunsen burners, as do the physical sciences, are sociology and psy- 
chology. These social sciences fake as their laboratory man, his life, and 
the world in which he lives. 

The main objectives of the Department of Psychology are to help 
students gain a better understanding of themselves and others with 
whom they live and work and to develop more objective attitudes 
toward human behavior,- to give a foundation for graduate work and 
professional training in psychology; and to provide courses which are 
basic for successful professional work with people. The Department 
of Psychology at Millsaps has added a very capable staff to assist in 
presenting a wider variety of courses in this field. Five Ph.D.'s and one 
M.D. from the University Medical Center are new members of the 

The offerings of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology are 
planned to meet the needs of a variety of students. An average student 
may find knowledge about human-group relationships which will be 
useful to him as a person, parent, citizen, or worker. For some students 
sociology will not be a career but merely a part of their academic 
backgrounds. Whatever career they choose, from medicine to law, there 
will be a need for the understanding of people and society to be 
successful in a profession. Studying sociology may aid a person to 
fill with greater insight these varied roles which are his inescapable 
destiny. Other students will find courses which are essential background 
for a career in social work. The department also offers the basic 
undergraduate courses which are needed as a foundation for specialized 
graduate study in sociology and anthropology. 

Many tributaries of psychology and sociology have not been explored; 
this is one aspect which adds to their interest and popularity among the 
social sciences.

Practice Teaching Gives 
Experience, Background 

Whether the student studying education is in a 
psychology class playing "cat and rat" or practice 
teaching in a local school, he is preparing himself 
for the moment when he will one day take his 
position as a molder of the minds of tomorrow. 
Realizing the great responsibility which lies before 
him, the student prepares himself to meet his 
challenge with the desire to help others learn and 
become the tomorrow of our nation. 

In this fast-moving and competitive world of 
today the eminent need for qualified teachers and 
personnel is ever-present. The Department of Edu- 
cation at Millsaps is striving to attain this goal 
by providing vast opportunity for the develop- 
ment of skill, self-reliance, and those inner resources 
which lead to self-mastery and happiness. Under 
the direction of Dr. R. Edgar Moore, this depart- 
ment has continued to progress toward a goal of 
excellent service. 

Professional training is offered in both the ele- 
mentary and secondary fields. Courses are de- 
signed to introduce the student to the fundamental 
principles of teaching and learning. The student 
observes and teaches in an accredited school for 
a semester. This experience is supported and supple- 
mented by seminars and conferences between stu- 
dents and college supervisors. This program is 
designed to meet the requirements of the Division 
of Certificatioh, the State Department of Education, 
and Class A certificates in both the elementary 
and secondary fields.

Economics Helps People 
To Be Useful Citizens 

The social science which might seem to be least 
involved with social conditions is economics and 
business administration, but one of the aims of the 
department is to equip students with a more ade- 
quate understanding of modern economic society 
in order to assist its members in becoming intelligent 
citizens of the communities in which they live. The 
department also seeks to provide a thorough, basic 
foundation for specialized graduate or professional 
study and to give students who expect to enter the 
business world a broad background and some of 
the fundamental information which will contribute 
to their success in their later lives. 

The curriculum of the Millsaps economics depart- 
ment follows the pattern recommended by the 
American Association of Collegiate Schools of Busi- 
ness. For those interested in accounting, the Millsaps 
curriculum offers the opportunity to take courses 
in all the subjects covered in the Certified Public 
Accountant examination. Graduates of this study 
are permitted to take the CPA examination without 
the usual requirement of two years of apprentice- 
ship experience.

Fine Arts Courses Stimulate 
Maturation Of Skills,Talents 

"Art is the expression of emotion, . . . communication, . . . 
the sharing of new discoveries." Millsaps students enjoy varied 
opportunities in the Department of Fine Arts: the music de- 
partment headed by Associate Professor Leland Byler and 
the art department headed by Mr. Karl Wolfe. The Fine 
Arts Department as a whole is devoted to the development 
of the skills and appreciation which will make art meaningful. 

More and more students throughout the state are becoming 
aware of the possibilities for careers relating to the graphic 
arts and particularly of the opportunity to study with Karl 
Wolfe, who has long been recognized as one of the South's 
outstanding artists. Work by Millsaps students is exhibited 
annually by the Municipal Art Gallery in Jackson. Local 
concerns employ Millsaps students for advertising and illustrat- 
ing work. This year the art department painted signs for the 

Another of the fine arts is music. This department has a 
faculty of four full-time teachers. Majors are offered in Music 
Education, Organ, Piano, and Voice. There are also extracur- 
ricular offerings through the three choirs and the newly 
organized band.

Math Students Perceive 
Art Written In Numbers 

Squares, triangles, and circles highlight the life of 
any mathematics student at Millsaps. The x's of algebra, 
the planes of geometry, the functions of trigonometry, 
and the epsilons of calculus aid in showing each student 
the intangible worth of mathematics. 

Each mathematics course is planned to offer an ex- 
perience in a sufficient variety of basic and liberal 
subjects which constitute the foundation of that general 
education which is regarded as essential to balanced 
development and intelligent citizenship. Millsaps' cur- 
riculum is intended to meet the needs of those who will 
proceed to the usual academic degrees at the end of 
four years, of those who will enter professional schools 
after three or four years, of those who are preparing 
for teaching or for scientific investigation, as well as the 
needs of students who take less than a complete aca- 
demic program. 

The Mathematics Department, led by Professor Knox, 
conducts the instruction of twenty-two mathematics 
courses for students genuinely interested in the field. 
These courses range from a foundations course on the 
basic principles to seminar, a one hour session in which 
each senior mathematics major discusses a new phase 
or method in his field. 

Besides teaching the methods and the importance of 
mathematics, the courses are designed to teach students 
that there is such a thing as mathematics as an art. 
Rather than for the agony of memorization or the fear 
of formulas, a student should study mathematics for the 
sheer interest in comparing, analyzing, and visualizing. 

Mathematics offers a means of expressing the re- 
lations between numbers, possibly unknowns.

Biology Presents Principles 
Underlying Life Phenomena 

Our civilization is so completely permeated with science 
that the word "scientific" has become the hallmark of progress, 
the dominant theme of the age. No human endeavor is con- 
sidered worthwhile unless it has a scientific foundation. Within 
the realm of science biology permits travel in the domain of 
living things. "Man probably was a biologist before he was 
anything else." 

Through lecture and lab work the Biology Department 
accomplishes its purposes of presenting the basic principles 
underlying life phenomena and correlating these principles 
with human living, of giving students a panorama of the kinds 
of plants and animals which have and which do now inhabit 
the earth and the major features of their behavior, of present- 
ing a generalized view of heredity and evolution, and of 
helping students appreciate and identify with their living en- 

Months of intensive study, guided laboratory work and 
research, complex demonstrations, and periodic testing give 
Millsaps an excellent reputation, based on graduates, with 
medical schools throughout the nation. The curriculum of the 
Biology Department is designed to offer specific courses re- 
quired for the curricula in other departments. Courses range 
from the Fundamentals of Biology, a course designed for the 
person not intending to major in a science, to Comparative 
Anatomy, various taxonomy courses, Embryology, and Genetics.

Chemistry Department Stresses 
Mastery Of Theory, Technique 

"I do not know what I may appear to the world; but to myself I 
seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and divert- 
ing myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier 
shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered 
before me." — Isaac Newton 

The Chemistry Department stimulates the spirit of quest for knowledge 
in those students taking any of its nineteen courses. In the strict science 
majors it renews as well as creates a spirit of determination which serves 
to drive that student toward higher levels of understanding. Somehow, 
though, neither student nor professor is satisfied with that knowledge 
acquired in the past. 

The curriculum of the Chemistry Department under Professor Charles 
E. Cain, Assistant Professor Roy Alfred Berry, and Assistant Professor 
Clifton T. Mansfield includes both a general chemistry course to provide 
a basic knowledge of the fundamental principles of modern chemistry 
and application and advanced research courses.

Department Emphasizes 
American Government 

The general objective of the Department of Po- 
litical Science under the direction of Associate 
Professor Gordon G. Henderson and Mr. Neil 
Folse is to acquaint students with the theory and 
practice of government and politics. Primary at- 
tention is focused upon the American political sys- 
tem. Directing its effort to an intelligent under- 
standing of the contemporary world and of 
the responsibilities which are laid upon citizens 
of a democracy, the Department of Political Science 
shares the general objectives of a liberal arts edu- 
cation. While the department does not emphasize 
vocational education, the knowledge it seeks to 
impart should be useful to anyone contemplating a 
career in the government service, law, or politics. 


Department Offers Courses 
In Both Divisionsof Geology 

Geology is the science of the earth itself. It is history written 
in the rocks. By using the present as a key to the past, geology 
helps to unlock the mysteries of the environment. 

Geology is a relatively young science which had its beginning 
in 1785. The field of geology has two major divisions: physical 
geology, covering the nature and properties of the materials 
which compose the earth, and historical geology, a record of 
life on the earth and physical changes on the globe itself 
from its beginning two billion years ago up to today. 

Geology at Millsaps, under Professor Richard R. Priddy and 
Mr. Wendell B. Johnson, is designed to offer the usual basic 
courses in physical, historical, structural, and economic geology 
and minerology. These courses are supplemented by studies in 
stratigraphy and petroleum geology on the Gulf Coast. Any 
student can enter physical geology where he will immediately 
find himself amidst varied chunks of rocks, colored photographs 
of soil samples, and tinted maps. Several field trips mark the 
high spots for students in the geology sections as they discover 
nature's own evidence of the geologist's record of life told 
against the ever-changing physical environment of the earth.

Physics Provides Interpretation 
Of Natural PhysicalPhenomena 

Physics, a science that deals with matter and energy and their 
interactions in the fields of mechanics, acoustics, optics, heat electricity, 
magnetism, radiation, atomic structure, and nuclear phenomena, is 
under the direction of Associate Professor William R. Hendee and 
Associate Professor Charles B. Galloway. 

Courses offered in the department are designed to provide a solid 
foundation in all areas of physics for the student who intends to study 
at the graduate level; to provide a firm physical interpretation of natural 
phenomena for the student who intends to enter the field of medicine; 
to provide a thorough explanation of basic physical principles and the 
opportunity to specialize in a chosen area for the student who intends 
to terminate his study upon graduation; and to provide an introduction 
to both the theoretical and the experimental aspects of physics for 
all interested students. 

The courses offered include the basic courses and more advanced 
ones, such as: Atomic Physics, Nuclear Physics, Biophysics, Thermo- 
dynamics and Statistical Mechanics, and Radiological Physics. For senior 
physics majors there is Seminar: student presentations of current 
problems in physics research. It is designed to acquaint the student with 
research literature. 

A National Science Foundation grant has been received this year 
by Dr. Hendee for a study involving the measurement of energies that 
are utilized in biochemical reactions which form an integral part of 
the life process.

Courses Augment 
Communicative Art 

The objective of the Speech Department 
is to make known and to aid in correcting 
the general of communicative powers in 
the world today. Future leaders in church, 
in state, and in industry need to develop 
the art of communicating with others. This 
opportunity is found in various courses: 
Public Speaking, Interpretation of Drama, 
Phonetics, Persuation, and Debate. These 
courses are taught under the direction 
and guidance of Mr. Lance Goss and Mr. 
Edward Collins. 

Debating has occupied an important 
place on the Millsaps campus since the 
year the college was founded. Each 
year the Millsaps Invitational Debate Tour- 
nament is held. It is recognized as one 
of the outstanding events of its kind in 
the South and one of which Millsaps is 
proud. It offers students from as many as 
fifteen states the opportunity of compar- 
ing skills in the art of oratory. Millsaps, 
realizing the value of speech in educa- 
tion, has required this course for gradua- 
tion in many departments. In this way 
speech plays an important role in helping 
Millsaps contribute to society ministers, 
teachers, and others whose public ora- 
tions will be a credit to the college, to the 
community, and to the state. 

Philosophy Teaches 
Perceptive Outlook 

Philosophy, a subject basic to our cul- 
ture, is the pursuit of wisdom, the search 
for truth through logical reasoning rather 
than through factual observation, and an 
analysis through the grounds of and the 
concepts expressing fundamental beliefs. 

Millsaps is one of the four Methodist 
colleges requiring a minimum of six hours 
of philosophy for a B.A. degree. One 
hundred six colleges were surveyed by 
the President's Bulletin Board in an effort 
to determine what most Methodist Colleges 
require in the department. The require- 
ments ranged from two to six hours, with 
most colleges listing three. 

Millsaps offers twelve separate courses 
in philosophy under the direction of Pro- 
fessor Robert E. Bergmark and Mr. L. 
Hughes Cox. These courses are designed to 
help the student develop a critical attitude 
toward life and an appreciative under- 
standing of life. There is in this depart- 
ment an introductory course which is de- 
signed to introduce the student to the field 
of philosophy, that he may learn how 
comprehensive the field is and learn also 
how philosophy is related to life as it is 
lived from day to day. The courses offered 
include Logic, History of Philosophy, Ethics, 
Esthetics, Oriental Philosophy, Philosophy 
of Science, and Metaphysics.

PhysicalEducation Incorporates 
Healthful Exercise, Academics 

Under the guidance of Coach Montgomery, Coach Davis, Coach 
Ranager, and Miss Edge, the physical education department provides 
leisure education, healthful exercise, and the development of recreational 
sports skills which have continuous value for teaching or personal use 
both in college and in the future. 

In the physical education program each student can find something 
in which he can excell. The activity courses, two of which are required 
for graduation, include golf, bowling, tennis, and other common recrea- 
tional sports. 

In addition, various academic courses are furnished for teaching 
preparation purposes. Physical education for the elementary grades 
explores characteristics of elementary school children and activities 
suited to their physical and mental levels. The theory of high school 
coaching and a course in athletic officiating for men are offered to 
future basketball coaches and those interested in football or basketball 
officiating. Finally, personal health and care of the body are studied in

The Light of 


The most fundamental of the 
intrinsic qualities of this beam 
is the life which actually is 
Millsaps. The academic life, the 
social life, and the extracurricu- 
lar life are only small beams 
which separately are momen- 
tary glistenings but which to- 
gether shine to form the Light 
of Life. 

Student Life 

Estelle Noel, editor 

With the help of her family freshman Virginia Ann Jones energetically starts off her college 

career ot Millsaps. Little does she know she is on second floor of Founders Hall in a room 

with no walls and, needless to say, no heat. It will be no wonder if she does not have that 
smile a year from now. 

Freshmen, Upperclassmen Adapt 
To Dormitories, College Activities 

The first few days in a new place are always the most thrilling, challenging, 
and bewildering. Freshmen at Millsaps realized at once that they were entering 
one of the most terrific phases of their lives. 

Cars were unloaded, goodbyes were said, and the dorms filled with expectant 
students. That first week seemed one weary and endless line, a series of insurmount- 
able tasks to complete, meetings to attend, and people to meet and not to forget. 
However, the anticipation of a new year and the promise of a new school 
permeated the air. Conferences with faculty advisers and the Orientation program 
were completely new but tiring experiences. Soon registration was completed, and 
social life surged ahead. The freshmen were no longer newcomers to Millsaps, 
but were instead the Class of '68. 

After having been thoroughly welcomed, the new students were taken under the 
wings of the Orientation Committee to be familiarized with the Millsaps Campus. 
Tours, placement tests, and interviews with faculty advisers were the first activities 
to be taken into consideration. 

Orientation chairmen, Ruth Pickett and Paul Wilcox, greeted the Freshman 
Class. The freshmen then found their respective Orientation leaders and donned 
their name tags, which became a veritable part of their wardrobes. At the "Get 
Acquainted" Dance old friendships were revived, and new ones were acquired. A 
tentative air of happiness with only a trace of foreboding for the study to come 
covered the campus. 

For probably the first time in their lives these two freshmen are learning the art of moving 

into a place of their own — a room which soon will become an intermingling of their own 

respective personalities. The only problem confronting them will be that of taking care of 
this strange new abode in Ezelle Hall. 


M Club members derive a certain unexplained 
pleasure in giving this newcomer his per- 
sonalized freshman haircut — they do it free of 
charge too. 

Suzanne Riley donated some of her "loafing" 

time this summer to come "spruce up" her 

room. Not only did she paint the furniture, 
but also the walls. 

Orientation groups were headed by upper-classmen who told the freshmen 
and transfer students about Millsaps and about the curriculum, honors, 
and social organizations and who took them on a walking tour of the 

Tests were given to freshmen to check their aptitudes and interests and 
their proficiency in mathematics. 

A variety show, mixer games, and a dance made up the program at the freshman "Get-Acquainted" 
party held the first day school opened. 


That long registration line, just to turn in cards, never seemed to move. In fact, it 

even got longer as the minutes passed— friends just could not let friends go to the end 

of the line. Finally though, students got through this line only to find that it was the 
first of a series. 

Registration Becomes 
Harassing Experience 

The confusion of moving on campus was 
surpassed only by the chaos of registration. 
The students packed their gear for their first 
major encounter with "student versus pro- 
fessor," more widely known as registration. 
Everyone tried to "beat the system" by being 
an hour early. But there was already a line 
of those who had come two hours early. Stu- 
dents had to fill out numerous cards which 
required details ranging from the date of 
grandmother's birth to whether or not parents 
were broadminded. Lines to fill out cards were 
followed by lines to sign up for courses, lines 
to turn in schedules, and lines to pay tuition. 
There were even lines to get into lines. Seniors 
too were subject to the misery of wandering 
sullenly around trying to get into an eleven 
o'clock religion class. 

Oh well, I guess that it will just have to be another 
overdraft. Tuition went up again this year, and the 
increase hit several pocketbooks quite hard. 

After having signed up for their courses, students went to have their schedules and 
hours checked by the Academic Dean and the Registrar. 

As a freshman, each student is assigned a faculty advisor with whom he may consult 
at any time concerning his academic problems. 


Greeks Prepared for, 
Rushees Feared Rush' 

During the hectic week of orientation and regis- 
tration Greeks prepared for Rush. All sorority and 
fraternity housrs got a final dusting before the 
formal receptions. High hopes and concerted ef- 
forts to make favorable impressions charged the 
atmosphere with excitement and tension. 

There is nothing else at Millsaps like Rush. Where 
else could be seen so many girls in Dog-patch 
costumes, devil suits, and circus outfits! But what 
the rushees never saw and the actives never for- 
got were the midnight bid sessions, invitation dead- 
lines, and skit practices. 

In fraternities only the Rush Chairmen even 
attempted the hopeless task of remembering the 
names of all rushees. Rushees were overwhelmed 
by the abundance of handshaking, which seemed 
to demonstrate the "eternal bonds of brotherhood." 

All this and more was a part of the word, rush: 
that always-to-be-remembered week of work, heart- 
break, and smiles of joy. 

Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity entertained their rushees as 
five actives teamed up to sing folk songs. This was one 
of the smokers which occupied Rush week for the boys. 

Daisy Mae (Susan Tenney) tells Lil Abner (Margaret Allen) that she does not 
want to chase him in the Sadie Hawkins Day race. Instead, she would rather go 
away to college and join a "sursity." Chi Omega Fraternity presented this skit 
during fall Rush. 

Pledges find themselves overwhelmed as they approach 
"their" fraternity house. Being a pledge means many 
things, but most important, entrance into a brotherhood. 

Members of Kappa Delta Sorority are ecstatic as well as relieved, as they wel- 
come the twenty-three girls who picked up their bids. These tears and smiles of 
joy ended the hectic week of work and tension and began the wonderful ex- 
perience found in pledgedom.

Once a month there is a supper at one of the sorority houses. This event gives the ac+ives and 
pledges the added opportunity to be together as a group. 

Fair, Parties Spice 
Daily School Grind 

Close on the heels of the opening of 
school came the Mississippi State Fair and 
the endless cycle of sorority and fraternity 

Hellish lights advertising dare-devil rides, 
side-shows of painted women calling to 
farm boys, carnival goodies, and "take-a 
-chance-win-a-teddy-bear" games depicted 
the fair. Millsaps students immediately be- 
came a part of "Fair Week." 

After a week of light-hearted fun, ser- 
ious students returned to the daily grind. 
Still they thought of fun and welcomed the 
dances, the sorority-fraternity mixers at 
which the pledges met each other, and the 
house suppers once a month at the sorority 

This year the S.E.B. instigated dances in 
the basement of the Student Union every 
other Friday night. This provided a place 
especially for the non-Greeks. From the 
first, though, the Greeks too found a place 
at the S.E.B. dances. In addition to these 
parties, there was Greek Night, which end- 
ed Rush week, the street dance in front 
of Franklin, and Homecoming. 

After the Homecoming game at Newell Field Millsaps students came back to the Student Union for 
the dance at which the Viscounts played until one o'clock.

with girls in it) . . . Valentine surely does look Interested in that girl, course Valentine 
looks interested in a lot of girls! The Kappa Sigs entertained the Phi Mus at a pledge 

That's one ride that will really take your stomach. 
But— grin and bear it, Marilyn, and go on to the 
next one. 

This is the Mississippi State Fair with her crowds of people, her daredevil rides, 
her pronto pups and cotton candy, her sawdust side shows, and her win-a-teddy- 
bear games. 

I'm not being selfish. I Just want one big fuzzy white dog. Easy does it.

Everyone meets in the grill: some students study, some talk, some enjoy a moment of leisure before 
another class begins, and some get off their diets. 

Grill Stays Most Popular Spot, 
Though Often Conjestea^Noisy 

The grill has become an institution dedicated to the betterment of 
social life of Millsaps students. History may have been made in 
Founders,- and students may have spent a minor part of their college 
lives sTudying, watching T.V., and voting; but everything still centered 
around the grill. Food and drink were only minor excuses for having 
been there; actually it was in the grill that friendships were formed, 
dates were planned, and campus-wide activities were formulated. The 
coffee was certainly not the best in the world, and conditions often be- 
came conjested and noisy. But the Millsaps grill had that perplexing 
magnetic appeal that stayed hovering about its doors.

of course.

Campus Cheerleaders Revamp 
Waning Millsaps Spirit, Pep 

"Come on y'all yell! I simply can't hear y'all at all." Mill- 
saps' eight cheerleaders completely revamped the lagging 
spirit on campus this year. For the first time there were 
spontaneous pep rallies, a successful bonfire, more people 
at the games. Echoes of "Two Bits" and of "Majors Great" 
rang in ; the cafeteria the night of a game after the cheer- 
leaders finished a rally. Even non-religious chapel programs 
were sometimes climaxed by a series of cheers. Cheers them- 
selves showed hard work and cooperation. Head cheerleader 
Emily Compton and Floy Holloman, Rachel Davis, Genrose 
Mullen, Graham Lewis, Lynn Rutledge, Connie Milonas, and 
Penny Sanders faithfully cheered for the Majors at all home 
games and at some of the out-of-town games. Cheering did 
not end with football though. The cheerleaders were present 
at most basketball games. 

Majors great! We've got the spirit that a great {earn needs. It's gr-r-reatl 

[ 42 ] 


I don't know, but I think, that someone made a mistake in print- 
ing that sign. It must have been a freshmen— certainly is wasn't 
an upperclassman. 

"Two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar . . ." Was it the cheer or 
a touchdown that made everybody stand up. Probably the cheer. 

Loyal Major fans illustrate the fact that it takes a little more than a drizzle to keep them from 
cheering for Millsaps as they sit under the shelter of umbrellas .

Alums Return to Millsaps 
Participate in Homecoming 

Alumni began returning to the campus Friday, 
October 9 to participate in the annual homecoming 
weekend program honoring graduates and former 

Sororities, fraternities, and non-Greeks made dis- 
plays which lined the road around the Student 
Union. A trophey awarded for originality and gen- 
eral appearance was presented to the independent 
students for their decoration. 

Friday which was declared Freshman Day was 
climaxed by a pep rally and bonfire and a street 
dance in the parking lot of Franklin. All during the 
day freshmen had worn costumes and had rung 
the Millsaps bell. At the pep rally the "King and 
Queen" of Freshman Day were announced. 

On Saturday alumni took part in tours of the 
campus after which they attended a variety show 
and openhouses sponsored by the sororities and 
fraternities. At the homecoming banquet Dr. Ross H. 
Moore was named the Alumnus of the Year. 

The day was climaxed by the Millsaps-Southwest- 
ern game, during which Kathy Khayat was crowned 
homecoming queen. Members of her court were 
Rachel Davis, Laura McEachern, Mabel Mullins, and 
Lynn Rutledge. After the game students attended a 
dance in the Student Union.

The Mock Convention wos a hubbub of speeches, roll calls, demonstrations, eventual fatigue, and final 
stalemate and adjournment. 

Mock Convention Ends 
In Mid-night Dead-lock 

Hot debate rocketed the 1964 Mock Republican 
Convention into high gear after 475 delegates 
crowded into Buie Gymnasium for the conven- 
tion's opening session. 

Rubel Phillips, Mississippi's first significant GOP 
candidate for governor in many years keynoted 
the convention. He was introduced by Wirt Yerger, 
chairman of the Mississippi Republican Party. 
After his speech Rubel Phillips presided over the 
election of the permanent chairman of the con- 

The Republican candidates for the party no- 
mination were Margaret Chase Smith, Barry Gold- 
water, Henry Cabot Lodge, Richard M. Nixon, 
Nelson A. Rockefeller, George Romney, and 
William W. Scranton. 

Tension and a tingling excitement filled the air 
as the Mock Convention climaxed in a midnight 
dead-lock between Goldwater and Lodge. After a 
fifth ballot was held and still no candidate decided 
upon, the convention was adjourned. 

The familiar voice of Lillian Thornell, convention secretary,

"My Fair Lady" Comes 
to Capture All Millsaps 

Once again Broadway came to Millsaps— this 
time in the fqrm of George Bernard Shaw's 
"Pygmalion" in the musical version. "My Fair 
Lady" is the story of a self-confident professor of 
phonetics and his efforts to transform a Cockney 
flower girl into a proper lady acceptable by all 

As Eliza Doolittle and Professor Henry Higgins, 
Paula Page and Rex Stallings starred in this pro- 
duction directed by Lance Goss. Mr. Goss has di- 
rected such other smash hits as "Destry Rides 
Again" and "Camino Real." The Millsaps play- 
ers' version was one of the first amateur perfor- 
mances of this play in the country. 

Miss Page was a senior voice major from Grenada; 
however, Eliza marked her stage debut. She was 
a member of the Troubadours and served as 
student conductor and soloist with the Concert 

Rex Stallings, a veteran actor from Jackson, 
has worked on stage with the Players as well 
as back stage, and he is serving as president of 
Alpha Psi Omega. 

One critic wrote of the stars in "My Fair Lady": 
"Paula was wonderful, right down to her blood- 
curdling eeeiiioww and her lovely 'I Could 
Have Danced All Night.' I'll never be able to 
say the name Rex Stallings again; I'm afraid 
it will come out 'enry 'iggins instead. To this 
inexperienced theatre-goer it appeared that in 
most respects this was the best executed role in 
the play." 

John Hammock of the Clarion-Ledger said "when 
one puts together the state's pioneering collegiate 
producer of musical plays with Broadway's great- 
est success of all time, the result is a foregone 
conclusion— a HIT." 

Many times rehearsals stretched far into the night as those actors and actresses strove 
for perfection on such a great play as this was. 

Mrs. Higgins could not believe that her son, Henry, had taken in a common flower girl 
off the streets, much less that he was trying to make a lady of her (Jeanne Rostaing)

Gross Directs "Molly Brown" 
Most "Fun" Play for Millsaps 

"The Unsinkable Molly Brown," the most ambitious show that the Mill- 
saps Players have ever presented, surpassed even "My Fair Lady" in 
complexity of style and orchestration. 

This play which depicted Molly Tobin's rise from a poor girl in a 
miner's town to a Denver millionairess and of her efforts to break into 
Denver society is full of intricate music and dialogue plus the gay light- 
hearted air so characteristic of Meridith Wilson's works. Cast members 
unde r the direction of Lance Goss worked hard and enthusiastically to 
perfect the many difficult scenes,- but all agreed, especially the leads, 
that "Molly Brown" was the most "fun" play with which they had 

The show's twenty-three vivid sets, designed by alumnus Vic Clark, 
varied from the Tobin shack in Hannibal, Missouri and the Browns' Paris 
salon to a rocking lifeboat from the sinking Titanic. 

Principal roles for "Molly- Brown" were held by veterans of the Mill- 
saps stage. Beth Boswell who played Molly Tobin was described 1 as "a 
fine clown with a beautiful voice . . . who works very, very hard and 
very, very well." John Wilkerson as Johnny Brown was called "about 
as perfect a piece of casting ... as anyone findr< in non-professional 

Directed by Richard Alderson, a member of the music faculty, the 
twenty-one piece orchestra was composed largely of members of the 
Jackson Symphony Orchestra. Albia Kavan and Rex Cooper of The 
Dance Academy took charge of choreography. 

Having been created by Charles Dillingham of Gordon Marks Agency, 
the antiqued programs were faithful imitations of The Jackson Daily News 
for Monday, April 15, 1912. Headlines proclaimed in bold type the 
sinking of the Titanic and the heroism of Mrs. J. J. Brown. The programs 
also included pictures of the giant liner and of the small rescue boats. 
The cast, synopsis of scenes, and other production information appeared 
as stories in the paper. 

"Sure glad to make your acquaintance. Boy, do you spout a helluva sermonl You scared the pants 
offa me the other day with all that talk of fire and damnation. Here's five thousand dollars for your 
new church. Already took over ten million outta God's good earth. Guess He deserves a little kickback."

"Lets face it Prince. I love all the handkissin' and your title sets my cork abobbin'. 
But marriage, I don't know." (Ford Williams and Beth Boswell) 

"Hear that? The Browns are havin' a party I Ya hear, Mrs. McGIone? Well, 
listen honey, 'cause you're gonna hear from us. We ain't down yet I (John Wilk- 
inson and Beth Boswell) 

Junior Beth Boswell, who portrays Molly Brown, applies her 
makeup before a mirror spattered with good luck messages. 

"I ain't down yet!" (Beth Boswell and John Wilkinson) 

[ 55 ] 

"We're going to sinkl" " Not with Molly Brown aboard. I was born in a cyclone In Hannibal, Missouri. 
Thai was my start and this sure as hell ain't gonna be my finish."

Troubadours Embark 
on Tour of Europe 

Decidedly travel-worn, fourteen Millsaps 
students and one faculty member emerged 
from a Delta DC-6 onto Jackson's Thompson 
field last July 12 to be greeted with a bar- 
rage of kisses and handshakes. 

The fifteen were the Troubadours who had 
just completed a two-month tour centered in 
Germany and France. Sponsored by the 
USO, the tour included some fifty to sixty 
performances before Army personnel at 
scattered European military installations. 

After deplanning, the travellers proceeded 
to pick up worse-for-wear suitcases full of 
wash-and-wear clothes, by this time more 
worn than washed. The setting recalled the 
rousing send-off given the group Sunday Morn- 
ing, May 17, after an enthusiastically re- 
ceived home show the night before. 

In the intervening two months the fifteen 
students travelled thousands of miles through 
new lands offering countless sights, opportun- 
ities, and demands. 

On the final week of the trip each stu- 
dent was free to go, at his own expense, 
wherever he chose. Destinations included 
Munich, Berlin, Salzburg, Zurich, London, and 
points between. 

The Troubadours performed mainly light 
vocal and dance numbers, working primarily 
with folk music and show tunes. 

Audiences received the group favorably, 
often enthusiastically, and comments mailed 
to USO were highly complimentary. 
(Writeup taken from September 12, 1964 
Purple & White). 

To receive their briefing before leaving for Europe, the Troubadours meet at the USO Headquarters 
in New York City. 

[ 58 ] 




The trip provided an opportunity for several of the Troubadours to re- 
new old friendships. 

Airports and planes soon became to be thought of as necessary evils. 

The Troubadours took out time from their shows to see Europe and found her just 
as charminq and picturesque as they had dreamed.

Who's Who 
in American Colleges 

and Universities 

This year seventeen Millsaps students were elected for mem- 
bership in "Who's Who among Students in American Colleges 
and Universities." These students were selected by the faculty 
and administration on the basis of leadership and participation 
in academic and extra-curricular activities, scholarship, and 

"Who's Who" was originated in 1934 by Mr. H. P. Randall 
as a directory of outstanding students in universities and col- 
leges throughout the United States. Selection to "Who's Who" 
has a double distinction,- for, in addition to serving as a mark 
of outstanding achievement on the college campus, the an- 
nual volume serves as a go-between for future employees 
and graduating services.

Revue Employs Song 
As Program's Theme 

Having as its theme "A Pretty Girl Is Like a 
Melody," the 1964 Bobashela Beauty Review 
set the stage for the selection of beauties. 
In addition to the beauties, emcee Freddy 
Davis introduced Master Major and Miss Mill- 
saps, the favorities, and members of Who's 
Who in American Colleges and Universities. 

The twenty beauties were presented be- 
fore sets from "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" 
as Johnny Morrow sang the theme song, 
which was followed by Genrose Mullen's rend- 
ering of "I Feel Pretty." Kay McDuffie and 
Ford Williams, as well as The Majority, pro- 
vided entertainment during the judging of 
beauties. Carole Chase served as accompanist 
for the program. 

Pondering faces, assured (?) convictions, deliberative questions were all a part 
of the expressions of the five judges for the Seauty Review: Mrs. Trenton Shelton, 
Joseph, Mrs. Wayne Terry Lamar, Mr. Mayes B. Hunter, Mr. Dewey Edwards, all of 

Highlighted on the dark stage by only a moving spot- 
light, Miss Mary Todd Porter of Hazlehurst was presented 
to the audience as one of the top ten beauties.

Announcement of number one beauty brings tears of joy to Susan Duquette who is surrounded by the 
other top beauties: Carolyn Tabb, Kathy Hymers, Jean Nicholson.

Student Legislature Serves 
to Solve Student Problems 

The Student Senate, Millsaps' official student legislative 
body, represents as nearly as possible, a fair cross-section 
of the entire student body. Its weekly meetings serve as sound- 
boards for student problems and furnish a medium for the 
solutions of such situations. Activities for the Student Senate 
this year have included such things as: new financial by-laws, 
consideration of a system of unlimited cuts, organization of 
Union parties every other Friday night, and service improve- 
ment in the grill and the cafeteria. Four standing committees 
co-ordinate Union affairs, social activities, special entertain- 
ment, and parking regulations.

Bobashela Staff Preserves 
Highlights, Memories of Year 

Unglamorously enough, one may find Bobashela staff mem- 
bers combing through bountiful editions of past college year- 
books or trying to crop a horizontal picture which just has to 
be a vertical or beating the pavement trying to sell even a 
twelfth of a page of advertising, but most probably begging 
the SEB for money with which to get out of debt. 

The Bobashela was created word by word, picture by pic- 
ture, deadline after deadline under the watchful eye of a 
watercolor bullfighter. It emerged as a book of lasting col- 
lege memories— the life of Millsaps College, 1964-65. 

Not only in charge of capturing the memorable moments of 
a fleeting year, the Bobashela staff sponsored the annual 
Beauty Review, one of the highlights of the school year. 
"Bobashela" is actually the Indian word for "good friend."

Campus Paper Aids 
As Journalism Lab 

Flash bulbs popping, typewriter keys 
clacking, dummy sheets being proofread, 
and papers being pasted up— this was the 
scene each week just before another edi- 
tion of the P&W came out. Those endless 
trips to Keith press and back, lost sleep, 
and ulcers— all seemed useless until: "Boy, 
the P&W gets better every issue!" The en- 
tire staff was constantly on the go. 
Each week editors assigned stories and 
prodded until the copy was in. It took 
hard work, and work the P&W staff did. 

The Purple and White, the campus news- 
paper, is designed to supply students 
with a weekly record of college events 
and to provide an airing ground for 
current campus views on pertinent topics 
of college life. Participation on the cam- 
pus newspaper is on a voluntary basis, 
and the P&W serves as a laboratory for 
gaining valuable experience in journa-

Students Compile Stylus, 
Anthology of Literature 

Millsaps College students have come to 
recognize the stylus as a priceless anthology 
of the literary works of campus short-story 
writers, poets, playwrights, and essayists. 
There are two opportunities a year to be- 
come acquainted with this outstanding maga- 
zine. At a moderate price, the Stylus provides 
a wonderful chance for Millsaps students to 
enjoy an inspiring potpourri of literature and 
to offer congratulations to the authors who 
have contributed to this anthology. 

Major Facts Serves 
As Guide for Pupils 

Major Facts is the pocket-sized "guide to 
living" on the Millsaps campus. This little 
book, which is edited by Millsaps students, 
is a miniature encyclopedia of traditions, 
general information, and rules and regula- 
tions ranging from academic requirements to 
the type of clothing which may or may not 
be worn on the campus. The editor of 
Major Facts is under the supervision of the 
Dean of Students and is appointed by the 
president of the student body.

New Group, The Troubadours, Entertain Locally, Abroad 

The Troubadours are the newest vocal group here at Millsaps 
and were formed a year ago. They were an instant hit, and 
anyone who has heard them can understand why. The members 
of the group are talented and attractive, and their perform- 
ances are unusually refreshing. 

Last year Mr. Leland Byler, director of this group, sent a 
tape to the National Music Council which sponsors USO tours 
to Europe. They liked the music, and the Troubadours were 

invited to tour France and Germany for two months last sum- 
mer as part of the USO program. They were offered a Far 
East tour this fall but had to refuse because they could not 
get out of school for two months. 

The clever staging for the Troubadours is done by senior 
Lynn Krutz. The biggest job for Mr. Byler is finding music 
to use which is "desirable and catchy."

Millsaps Singers Perform 
Varied Repertoire of Songs 

The Millsaps Singers is one of the most popular 
extra-curricular organizations on campus. It has 
represented Millsaps, not only throughout the state, 
but also the nation. 

The choir, directed by Mr. Leland Byler, sings 
music of all types, ranging from classical and re- 
ligious music to popular medleys. 

In addition to their campus performances, such 
as the presentation of a Thanksgiving program, 
Handel's "Messiah," and the annual "Feast of

Players Create Productions 
with Professional Qualities 

When the last curtain falls and the play is over, the

people interested both in acting and in backstage work. 
The Players includes members of committees working on 
lighting, sets, publicity, makeup, costumes, and, props and

Panhellenic Council Promotes Spirit of Co-operation 

Maintaining high standards of collegiate life, unifying in-

spirit of co-operation with college authorities are the primary 
purposes of the Panhellenic Council. The Council is composed 
of the president and two representatives of each sorority on 
campus; Mrs. Glenn Pate is the advisor for the group. Panhel- 
lenic seeks to create a spirit of friendship at Millsaps. It com- 
piles the rules governing; rush pledging, initiations on campus, 
and general administration of Rush Week. In co-operation 
with the Inter-Fraternity Council, they sponsor the Greek Night 
Dance, held on the night of pledging to complete Rush Week.

Chi Omegas Share Fame, 
Love, Warmth, Sisterhood 

Chi Omega is many things. It is parties galore: the 
SEB Formal, Rush parties, pledge swaps, a houseparty 
on the coast, and the Owl Man Party. It is scholarship 
with a trophy to prove it. It is a crackling fire, music on 
the stereo, songs filling the air, the sound of laughter. 
It is stringing popcorn for a Christmas tree, soap suds 
in a fountain, or an owl sanctuary. But much more 
than this, it is a girl with high ideals, sharing an en- 
dearing sisterhood and qualities of sincerity and warmth. 

The Chi Omega Fraternity was founded on April 
5, 1895, at the University of Arkansas. The colors of 
Chi Omega are cardinal and straw, and the flower 
is the white carnation. The Chi Delta chapter appear- 
ed on the Millsaps campus March 31, 1934. 

The spirit of Chi Omega is found in every phase of 
campus life. Chi Delta boasts the editor of the Bo- 
bashela; president of Panhellenic; cheerleaders; mem- 
bers of the Concert Choir, Troubadours, and Millsaps 
Players; the vice-president of WSGA; a Homecoming 
maid; four of the top five beauties; a favorite, and 
president of YWCA. 

I just knew that if I were rush chairman we wouldn't get anybody at all. But this 
is just so wonderful!

Kappa Delta Boasts 
Number One Beauty 

For fifty years now Kappa Delta has 
been a way of life at Millsaps. And what 
kind of a life is it? Well, first of all it's 
a busy one. Between visits to the Cere- 
bral Palsy School and dessert parties at 
the house, KD's manage to be involved 
in every sort of campus activity imagin- 
able. KD's sing in the Concert Choir,- they 
bloody their hands on the volleyball 
court,- they become very exercised about 
the Cold War at meetings of the Inter- 
national Relations Club; they parade 
around in long black robes on Tap Day; 
they pound typewriters for the Purple 
and White. So far there hasn't been a 
KD on the football team, but there's al- 
ways next year. 

This year Kappa Delta is especially 
proud to have among its members Miss 
Millsaps, the top Bobashela beauty, nine 
Seniors named to Who's Who among

Phi Mu Displays Song Fest Trophy 

Phi Mu came to Millsaps 51 years ago, as Epsilon Chapter became the first 
sorority on campus. And that was the beginning of a tradition for Phi Mu. 

Contagious enthusiasm is characteristic of a Phi Mu whether she is washing 
punch cups during open house or playing intramural volleyball. Her versatility 
encompasses every phase of student life, in which Phi Mu holds a very important 
part. Her activities range from Philomatheans to fashion shows, from pledge 
swaps to weekly meetings, from the Enchantress Ball to projects for the Little 
Red Schoolhouse, from studying to listening to a sister's problems. 

She wears her pride on her sleeve when she shows you the Chi Omega Song- 
fast Trophy, introduces you to her Big Sister, guides you through her new sorority 
ledge, or displays her shiny, new badge just after Initiation. She dreams of Phi 
Mu Castles and Enchantress Carnations. 

She proudly claims as sisters the WSGA president, Student Body secretary, 
three beauties, two favorites, a cheerleader, Junior class vice-president, and 
the assistant editors of both Stylus and the Purple and White. Still other Phi 
Mu's are members and officers of Eta Sigma Phi, the Majorette Club, Eta Sigma, 
the International Relations Club, Kappa Delta Epsilon, Alpha Psi Omega, Theta 
Nu Sigma, Chi Delta. The Concert Choir, the Troubadours, the Chapel Choir, 
the Madrigals, and the Players all boast Phi Mu participants, as well as do the 
Bobashela, Purple and White, Stylus, intramurals, Wesley, DSF, BSU, and YWCA 

Yes, as a matter of fact, I do like cokes! 

What do you MEAN you don't like the way I 
dance? !

ZTA Participates 
in Campus Life 

A peal of laughter, a cheerful song, 
a desire to help others, a willingness 
to work, a silver crown, a sister close 
by— these are all a part of the Delta 
Phi chapter of Zeta. Wearing the tur- 
quiose blue and steel gray of her fra- 
ternity, the Zeta may be serious and 
sentimental. Gathered around the 
piano during a coke party at the 
house, however, her mood might be 
one of gaity and laughter. 

Founded at Longwood College, 
Farmville, Virginia, 1898, Zeta Tau 
Alpha has grown to be amoung the 
ten largest sororities in the National 
Panhellenic Conference. The 124 chap- 
ters of ZTA are all linked together 
with the common purpose— "to intensify 
friendship, foster a spirit of love, create 
such sentiments, perform such deeds, 
and mold such opinions as will con- 
duce to building up a purer and nobler 
womanhood in the world." 

Zetas con be found all around cam- 
pus—serving in honoraries such as Chi 
Delta, Alpha Psi Omega, Eta Sigma 
Phi, Majorette Club, Pi Delta Phi, Schil- 
ler Gesellschaft, Social Science Forum, 
Theta Nu Sigma; singing in the Madri- 
gals and Chapel Choir; writing for 
the Purple and White and Bobashela; 
acting with the Millsaps Players; edit- 
ing the Stylus; and participating in 
other campus activities. 

Take the laughter and seriousness, 
the ideas and ideals, put them to- 
gether and you have that indefinable 
quality of a Zeta.

Kappa Alpha Order Boasts 
Complete Southern Heritage 

Four young men who sought to develop academic excel- 
lence, gentlemanly conduct, and high moral standards found- 
ed Kappa Alpha in an atmosphere of idealism on the small 
campus of Washington College, now Washington and Lee 
University, on December 21, 1865. General Robert E. Lee, 
exemplifying the highest traits of manliness, became the 
Spiritual Founder of Kappa Alpha Order. The Order was 
founded locally in 1892. 

The men of KA are found in all phases of campus activity. 
in additions to positions selected by the student body, mem- 
bers of Kappa Alpha can be found as the chairman of the 
orientation program, as the business manager of the Purple 
and White, as staff members of the Bobashela, as members 

of the Concert Choir, as Millsaps Players, and as Troubadors. 
Kappa Alpha is represented on the football, basketball, 
golf, and baseball teams: thus KA contributes many mem- 
bers to the "M" Club. Both the scholarship trophy and the 
intramural trophy were won by Kappa Alpha last year. 

KA's can also be found as members of Omicron Delta 
Kappa, Alpha Epsilon Delta, Theta Nu Sigma, Eta Sigma, 
and the Social Science Forum. 

The members of Kappa Alpha celebrate all things relative 
to the antebellum South. They sponsor an annual orphan party,- 
and the Black and White, a formal dance, is held before 
Christmas holidays each year. 

"Wheat, barley, alfalfa. Give 'em Hell, Kappa Alpha. Wheat, barley, hay. Give 'em Hell, KA" The 
KA's gather in the parking lot before going to seranade the girls.

Kappa Sigma Fraternity Wins 
Coveted Scholarship Trophy 

This is the same song that we sang for the sorority that was here 
before y'all were. We just changed the words. 

In 1895 ten millsaps men— some serious, others carefree- 
decided that they had two basic things in common: they all 
loved women, and each man respected the other nine men. 
Because of these basic interests, the grcup decided to become 
officially associated. To achieve this association they founded 
the Kappa Sigma Chapter at Millsaps. This association has 
been passed down for sixty-nine years to other deserving men 
at Millsaps. Now there are forty-six Millsaps Kappa Sigmas who 
love women and respect each other. 

It is obvious that the campus also respects Kappa Sigma's. 
Among its members are the presidents of the Freshman, Sopho- 
more, and Junior classes and the vice-president of the student 
body, in addition to four of the five male campus favorites and 
the president of the "M" Club. Campus honoraries which claim 
Kappa Sigmas as members are Omicron Delta Kappa, Alpha 
Epsilon Delta, and Theta Nu Sigma. A substantial amount of the 
"M" Club members also wear the star and cresent. Incidentally, 
Kappa Sigma also won the scholarship trophy during the spring 
semester of 1964.

Lambda Chi Alphas Represent 
Potpourri of Ideas, Activities 

"Gcd knoocooowwwws!" rips a splitting, discordant chorus 
from fifty well-oiled throats. It's the Lambda Chi's again, on 
the march, and armed to the teeth with sawed-off water 
pistols, multichannel amplifiers, secret translations of Hegel, 
Impala convertibles, and registered hands bearing pledges 
in open black catafalques, bearing the tortures of com- 
parative anatomy and classical mechanics and physical 
education, and baring hairy or not-so-hairy chests too im- 
pressed young things— venerators of the scared moose, lord 
protectors of the much-sought-after purple bathtub, curators 
of the subtlest esoterica, denouncers of organization, yet 
defenders of unity— here they are exposed to the outside 
world. So you say "I'm afraid I don't understand; what is 

a Lambda Chi?" And you are told to ask them, for they 
alone can tell you. But where shall you find them? Ah! 
Seek them out in reclusive abodes decked in tapestries or 
bambo; find them in rooms of gold or black or olive drab, 
sipping rare teas to the accompaniment of Palestrina and 
Shostakovitch and Bobby Bland; pull them from sensual 
apartment orgies,- rip them from their pizzas in the corner 
booths of exquisite restaurants; pursue them in the dark re- 
cesses of "ice plants/' or, if all else fails, distract them 
from their eternal game of bumper pool and set to them 
your question. Reply: "God knows, I don't know. What you 
asking me for?" 

Listen, fellas, I know everybody who gets dropped has to be thrown in the purple tub; I'm not corr 
plaining. It's just that I'm not dropped. It was all a big joke. Please . . .

PiKasLead Campus Life; 
Boast Millsaps SEB Prexy 

"He rambled 'til he got the colors on ... " The colors 
are garnet and gold; the fraternity, Pi Kappa Alpha. The 
Pikes were founded at the University of Virginia in 1868, 
and Alpha lota was chartered in 1903. The Pike Dream 
Girl is pinned at the Cotton Ball each spring. 

Besides copping the 1964 Chi Omega Song Fest trophy, 
Pikes led the campus in other fields. Titles displayed at the 
Pike House are these: president of SEB; president of the 
Senior Class,- Master Major; president of the Millsaps Play- 
ers,- and members of Who's Who in American Colleges and 

Universities. Alpha lota is a potpourri, as is evidenced by 
its membership in these organizations: Purple and White 
and Bobashela staffs, Alpha Epsilon Delta, Alpha Psi Omega, 
International Relations Club, Eta Sigma Phi, Social Science 
Forum, Concert Choir, Troubadours, Madrigals, band, and 
the golf and track teams. 

Fikes, the weejun sandal set, presently hold the South- 
ern Surfboard Championship and the National Booby Prize 
for sportcars. What a group!

Team Epitomizes 

Football at a small liberal arts 
college that does not emphasize 
athletics may be for the purpose 
of making the participants hardy. 
More likely it is to make the 
students happy. Football does 
help build strong resistance to 
many things. At Millsaps the boys 
learn that it's not the score that 
matters, but instead how the 
game is played. The Majors have 
long been known and commend- 
ed on their good sportsmanship. 

The record of the Millsaps var- 
sity football team was this year 
compariable to those of past 
years. Statistics did indicate, 
however, that by the end of the 
season the Majors had increased 
both their skill and their spirit 
tremendously. For this the team 
is to be commended.

The first year is the most trying year for any coach — 
he has to earn the respect of his boys. Coach Davis 
has earned this respect. 

The 1964 football club improved throughout the season 
and came close to winning on several occasions. After drop- 
ping the first two games 44-6 and 54-7, it looked as if Mill- 
saps were headed toward the establishment of several rec- 
ords—those which aren't needed. Then the defense began to 
perk up, but the Major offense could not get started, going 
three staright contests without lighting the score board. 

"Our main problem was not knowing who to put where. 
We shook up eveyone after our second game, and it actually 
took us four games to settle into a definite pattern. We really 
feel that our boys have come a long way since those first 
games," remarked Coach Harper Davis, (from Major Sports

Misfortune Assails 





Rumors often develop after a losing 
year, but Millsaps is not the only school 
to go through a season without a vic- 
tory. Mississippi College did it only a 
few years back. And, contrary to popular 
belief by some who do not really know 
what they are talking about, Millsaps has 
not always had extreme losing records, 
as, only two years ago, the team won 
often and drew crowds of over 3,000 
twice. "We're just at a low ebb in our 
football program this year. Other schools 
have been down before and have always 
come back. So will Millsaps." (from Ma- 
jor Sports Notes.)

Millsaps Cagers Realize 
Rough Schedule Stifling 

A rough schedule and a team which could boast 
of no returning starters and only two lettermen were 
problems that faced Coach James Montgomery at the 
start of basketball season. 

Because of the fact that so many members of this 
year's team were playing under Coach Montgomery 
for the first time, much time was devoted to ex- 
plaining his philosophy of defense and offense. 

Since the Majors played 17 games in Jackson, 
there were many opportunities for basketball fans 
at Millsaps to see their team in action. Highlights of 
the season included the Belhaven Tournament, the 
Delta State game in the Coliseum, the Mississippi 
Holiday Tournament at Forest Hill, and the Univer- 
sity of Mexico game at Millsaps. Since the varsity 
club at the University cf Mexico formed the core for 
Mexico's Olympic team, this game was eagerly 
awaited by the Majors. The fact that they beat this 
team boasted spirits immensely.

Coached by Ray Thornton, the 1964 track

new enthusiasm last year at Millsaps for the 
spring sport.

had a mediocre season this year. The Majors were victorious 
over the Delta State linksmen in a dual meet to climax the sea- 
son, while finishing fourth in the Mississippi Intercollegiate 
matches at Cleveland. 

The inclusion of golf at Millsaps allows those not interested 
in team sports to participate in varsity athletics. The team has 
done well in the past years, as is evidenced by former Mill- 
saps golfer Mary Mills, who won the 1963 Women's National 
Open Tournament.

Women's IntramuralsAdd 
Variety to Millsaps Sports 

One of the means of forgetting troubles and 
relieving tensions for Millsaps co-eds is to parti- 
cipate in intramural sports. Miss Mary Ann Edge 
is in charge of coordinating all games among 
the independent women and each of the Greek 

Trophies are awarded in the team sports of 
volleyball, basketball, and Softball, while indivi- 
dual awards are made in tennis, badminton, and 


The Women's Intraumural Trophy is awarded 
to the group with the most total points at the end 
of every school year. Points are awarded on the 
basis of participation and, of course, winning 
teams. This past spring the trophy was won by 
the Independents.

Doug Greene and Ward Van Skiver play on the net, as the Kappa Sigs and the 
KA's vie for the last volleyball victory. 

Lee Lewis watches nervously as Tommy Davis and John 
Grayson struggle for a spike ball at the same time. 

A highlight of Lambda Chi Field Day is the relays. Mack Varner showed, as did many boys, how far 
he would go for his fraternity-far enough to hand the baton to the next man.

John Gillis with a look of satisfaction got his man at home p'ate. His man might have been safe; but 
from the looks of things, John got him anyway. 

Mens Intramurals Draw 
Keen Competition, Thrills 

The men's intramural sports program at Millsaps under 
the direction of Coach James Montgomery adds to the 
development of a more well-rounded college community, 
especially one in which varsity sports are not emphasiz- 

Sports offered in this program include volleyball, bas- 
ketball, Softball, tennis, and golf. This great variety 
makes it possible for most students to find at least one 
area in which he excells. 

All four fraternities and the Independents participate 
in the activities, and competition is especially keen, many 
times even more so than at games between schools. 

In 1964 the Kappa Alphas won the Intramural 
Sports Trophy, and in the middle of the 1965 campaign 
were threatening to retain possession of the trophy. 

John Grayson took his turn as batter in this Kappa Sigma Softball

The Light of 










One of the most intrinsic beams 
at Millsaps is the Light of Learn- 
ing—a light which shines to en- 
courage those seeking knowl- 
edge as well as the sense of re- 
sponsibility and the pride of ac- 
complishment. This is the beam 
which incorporates the indivi- 
duals on campus into a single 
body striving together to acquire 
facts and understanding.

WAIT ... 




Wait until you're in a reminiscent 
mood five ... ten ... fifteen years 
from now. Then, when you pick 
up your yearbook to renew old

supply plenty of electricity for 
all your power needs. That s 
because at MP&L we plan and 
bui Id ahead.
