MELVIN AT MILLSAPS 



Once upon a time there was a high school senior who (for purposes of publication) we shall designate as Melvin 

Wood. 
And Melvin had always determined that when the time came he would certainly go to Millsaps because his father had 

gone to Millsaps and his brother had gone to Millsaps and the times that they had had only be weakly described as 

good; 
They were more than good; they were swell; 

And Melvin had determined that the same were in store for little Mel. 

So he put away his thoughts of high school and pondered about the fun he was going to have and come out to Mil- 
lsaps and looked at all the beauties of the campus— of one sort and another— that surround us 
And then he saw Foundus. 
Now Founders Hall had been seen by Melvin before when he and his father and his brother came to Jackson for the 

inaugration of one of Millsaps' presidents. 
But not as potential residents. 

No, he had merely viewed it as a building on the campus that maybe had been in style once. 
Now, however, he viewed it as a building where his sleeping and laughing and talking and telephoning would take 

place for the next number of monce. 
Momentarily Melvin was cast into gloom, 
And then he reflected that after all what was a room 

And after all what fun was a dormitory that was as well furnished as a house; 
Was he man or mouse. 
And Melvin said, "Father, I have thought it all over, and I have concluded that if Founders is part of Millsaps, I love 

Founders because I subscribe to the school of My Country right or wrong, but if wrong, still my country." 
And his tolerant father thought it all over too and decided this was not effrontery 
So he said, "Very well, Melvin, we'll go talk it over with U.Z." 
Which they did, with the result of loss of money to Mr. Wood, and loss of prestige to Freshman Wood, because he 

stopped being a senior automatically. 
Since there are a number of pictures for you to look at and see some of the things Melvin saw, we will take leave of 

our Freshman feeling few of the sensations experienced by Ferdinand when he contemplated flowers. 
For by this time Melvin is established in Founders, feeling anything but peaceful when he tries to solve the eternal 

and sphinx-like problem of the Founder's showers.

CLASSY, WHAT? 



Well, where did we leave Melvin? Oh, yes, he went to Millsaps and then he went to classes and then he went crazy 
Because he was right off that if you worked real hard on Freshman Lit. and wrote your weekly impressions you 

couldn't get up all of your trig too and then Van hook thought you were lazy. 
So then if you tried to get up English Monday and then on Wednesday get up trig, (which is planned economy, the 

Russians inform us) 
The English assignment on Monday would be trivial and on Wednesday it would be enormous. 
Anyway, he was not alone in these troubles involving education 
As he realized after a little meditation. 
So Melvin said, "I will bestir myself and meet my class-mates— 

"My A-making mates and my fail-mates and my pass-mates— 
"Eds, and coeds, for misery loves company, 

"and I might as well know a bunch of people to whom I can be grumpy if I care to grumpany." 
So Melvin bestirred himself. He went to the grill and he never took a girl, he just stood there, and smiled aloofly and 

ate candy, 
Which led coeds to reflect that at dances he would be handy. 
In the future they were nice to Melvin, and that made him happy, which all Millsaps students should be, according to 

our president, M.L.S.* 
Which is a noble sentiment, we must confess. 

Melvin learned that there is a vicious circle which is said to be the last word in educational (vicious) circles, 
Which works this way: you make all B's because you go to class regularly and so you are on the Dean's list and not 

required to go to class and this is a great honor. So lest no one realize that you have this great honor you cut a few 

classes and then you cut a few more and then you take an exam and you don't have the B average and then you go 

to class next semester and get back your B average and so it goes until you feel that life is just a series of ups and 

downs and wails and gurgles. 
He was handy in bull sessions too because he read READERS DIGEST and TIME and LIFE 
And had an excellent memory which could always produce a gorier murder concerning knives whenever someone in 

the state was murdered with a knife 
He developed the nonchalance of a dean's-list-student-cutting-for-the-thirteenth-time which he employed in walking 

out of class fifteen minutes early or coming in fifteen minutes tardy. 
And he was not particular pious, but on the other hand, he wasn't nardy. 
So he was popular among the students whose pictures are represented on the following pages, with borders hemmin' 

in. 
Probably because there is no one of them who did not have at least one of the Attributes attributed to Melvin. except 
that according to the Millsaps college bulletin, March 1939, 165 of the attributes may be considered as applying to 
the feminine.

OUT TO THE BALL GAME* 



Hurrah for the professors, hurrah for U. Z. too, 

And if you are a Choctaw,— then you know the rest of the chant we chant when we are enchanted by a half-back or 
quarter-back breaking through. 

But most especially, on this occasion, hurrah for U. Z., surnamed Hathorn upon whom we sometimes vent our wrath 
and teases when we want a good sport to tease or vent or wrathorn. 

U. Z., however, is worthy of merit. 

Because his is one of the major sponsors of the major school spirit. I make this remark because you all know that he's 
sorta funny about money. 

But we really shouldn't criticize when we stop to think about it because among other monies that he takes is $15 for 
student activity, 

Which solves a number of problems throughout the year, the main one being that we need never miss a campus ball- 
game, even if the bread-line is in dangerous proclivity. 

For out of the $15 comes our tickets to all of the football games and basketball and just ball games in general, 

And we need never stop to reflect that we are traitors to the purple and white just because we spent our last fifty cents 
for animal vegetable or mineral. 

No stiff backbone do we need, no budget, no question of endurance 

At least, where campus ball-games are concerned, because U. Z., the nice man, has taken over and gives us the Stu- 
dent Activity Fee as insurance. 

Therefore we go to the football games and basketball games et al And U.Z. is our pal. 

Because it is through him that we have seen in action and color the people and passes that live again in the following 
pages in black and white; 

It is through him that we are able to share the thrills of the various games whether they be played in the afternoon or 
at night. 

It is he that sees that the uniforms are brought and lights are lighted and balls are put up safely after the game and 
likewise visiting teams So it seems 

That we are not amiss in proclaiming this to be A hurrah for U.Z.** 



•Bail games were activities that were popular many years ago. 

"The nickname of a student in 1939 who was responsible for these "ball games.' 



THE GREEKS HAD A WORD FOR MELVIN 



And the word, dear friends, was rushee, 

Which, being translated, means the person a freshman is for a few precious days when upperclass boys and girls are 

supper-swell to under-class boys and girls and often in the latter case, mushee. 
Melvin, being a nice kid, and knowing how to take girls for granted and respect senior men 
Got along fine during those days (except on the occasion when he politely smoked black cigars to the number often). 
Of course he was interested when informed that of one of the groups Columbus was the patron saint, 
And somewhat confused when a rival group informed him that he would probably hear that Columbus is an alumnus 

of the first group but to bear in mind that he ain't. 
Then the first group when questioned by Melvin brought out documents to prove it, 
And he made up his mind to pledge and when his mind was all settled the other bunch made up its collective mind to 

move it. 
So they took Melvin into a small back room and introduced him to a couple of other fellows 
And they talked and talked and talked, saying that after all who was Columbus— America had been discovered by the 

Vikings already, and that the Columbuses of the world were helpless unless diamonds were sold by the Isabellows. 
They said now you take Arnold McFee, that was a man for you. 
He founded our noble fraternity and if you will wear this little piece of plaid around your arm tomorrow, symbolizing 

that you are pledged to the clan of McFee, we will simply adore you. 
Then at last they let him go home and he sneaked in and didn't turn on the lights because he was afraid that he would 

wake up the kid brother of a chapter president who had already told everybody that he was going to carry on the 

family tradition and make his mark. 
So rather than hear any more Melvin went to bed in the dark 
And of all the luck he got in the wrong bed 
And woke up the kid brother of the chapter president, so he didn't get to go to sleep because along about dawn he 

had to go Alpha Beta Gamma instead. 



THE KEY TO SUCCESS 

Melvin had not been at Millsaps long before he found that there were two kinds of students; 

The good ones and the not-so-gudents. 

And he discovered further that the good ones generally made not only good grades. 

But likewise most of the honoraries, and whenever there were parades, they led the parades. 

And he sat and reasoned thus: "How can it be 

"That all of these people who make good grades meet lab all afternoons and then on Monday nights they go to glee 
club and help with the P&W and on Wednesday nights they go alternately go to French and IRC Tuesday— premed 
club and on Thursday nights the boys go to frat meetings and the girls have a town-boy date 

"And on Friday night the preachers meet, and so it goes, and yet they generally look pretty good and as if they hadn't 
sat up particularly late. 

"It might not be so bad if they only had to go to the meetings because maybe they could sit on the back rows and read 
a book, 

"But they can't because look . . . 

"The campus big-shots get elected to offices in these things 

"and they have to get up programs and ask people to speak and decide what to eat at banquets 

"and if its a sorority, see a man to mow the house yard and see another man when the first manquits. 

"And therefore I don't see how under the sun 

"They get it all done." 

"I will tell you." responded an upperclassman who was an ODK. and this is what he respondit: 

"The more you belong to the less you have to do, and the way it works is this, as I have found it: 

"Let us say that you are expected to be on the IRC program, help make up the P&W, ask a doctor to speak at the pre- 
med club, report on the Christmas party plans for Alpha Beta Gamma, and Represent Millsaps at a Rotary meet- 
ing and you Decide you have therefore too much to do. 

"Very well. There are two courses to follow. You can come down with a fall or spring or regular (as the time of the 
year may be) case of flu, 

"Or you can say, 'I'm sorry Ross, I can't be on the program; I have too much to do; 

"I am sorry Tom, I can't help with the P&W, and if you want any heads written, You'd better get someone else to 
writtum; 

"I am sorry, Junior or Earl, I can't call the doctor; I have to much to do." and so on ad infinitum. 

"And they all realize that you are supposed to do all these other things and all say with the wisdom of of two 
Minervas, 

"You are right, and I will get somebody else to do it," and thus you are spared a breakdown modified by nervous. 

"So then you can cram for a test if you have to or do whatever you choose, 

"and what have you to lose!" 

"You are right," said Melvin, "You are absolutely right." 

And he went out and joined a club that night. 

And the next night he joined another and he wrote for the paper (one newsstory every other week) 

And one day he tried out for a play and got a walk on part with three words to speak; 

The play took a little time because twice he had to go and practice and say, "Dinner is served." 

But from his purpose he never served. 

And he worked and worked and worked, apparently, and finally his reward came and he was made very happy and 
his frat brothers even happier 

Because on tap day he was the only freshman in the long and honorable history of Millsaps to be tapped into Omi- 
cron Delta Kappier. 

So here he is a big shot right off the bat— a big shot to start with 

Which is a pretty good time, 

I guess to part with 

Melvin, the pride of Millsaps and Alpha Beta Gamma.

Faculty and Administration 



Just average teachers— No— our faculty mem- 
bers aren't content to be average. Their avid in- 
terest reaches past classroom activities to unre- 
quired studies, graduate work, and 
membership in state and national organiza- 
tions. This active participation brings them not 
only many honors but also a sense of satis- 
faction as students listen attentively— Boba-

CLASSES 



The Millsaps population would never lend it- 
self 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 numer- 
ous, interchangable, temporary and most 
uniquely equal. Strangely enough, no one 
group has yet become the "right" one and suc- 
cess remains an individual instead of a stereo- 
typed goal.

HONORARIE 










The Purple and While is the official student newspaper of the College, and 
its staff is composed of individuals interested in campus journalism. The P&W 
endeavors to provide coverage of all Millsaps events, as well as to serve as a 
forum for discussion and exploration of ideas. 

Now in its sixty-sixth year, the Bobashela is the annual student publication 
of Millsaps College, attempting to give a comprehensive view of campus life. 
"Bobashela" is an Indian name for good friend. 

Through Stylus, the College literary magazine, students interested in cre- 
ative writing are given an opportunity to see their work in print. The publica- 
tion comes out twice each year and contains the best poetry, short stories, and 
essays submitted by Millsaps students. 

Open by audition to all students, the Singers represent Millsaps in public 
performances, campus programs, annual tours throughout the state, and to 
other areas of our United States. In recent years the choir has traveled to Colo- 
rado; to Washington, D.C.; to Atlanta, to record for the National Protestant 
Hour; and to Mexico. The choir has sung with the Memphis Symphony Or- 
chestra three times, the Jackson Symphony, the Chicago Chamber Orchestra, 
and the New Orleans Philharmonic. In 1969 Dave Brubeck appeared with the 
choir for performances both here and in Atlanta for the Southeast Choral 
Conductors Convention. Last year the choir performed with the Jackson Sym- 
phony Orchestra in the regular concert season. Membership earns two semes- 
ter hours of extracurricular credit for the year's work.

The Troubadours represent Millsaps College locally, throughout Missis- 
sippi, the South, and frequently abroad. In 1964 they toured military installa- 
tions in Germany and France for eight weeks. In 1967 they were featured in a 
concert with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra. During that summer they 
went to the Caribbean Command, performing for the Armed Forces under the 
auspices of the USO. In 1969, they returned to Europe for eight weeks, with 
programs scheduled in Germany, Holland, and Belgium. In 1970, they per- 
formed at U. S. bases in Greenland, Labrador, and Newfoundland. In the 
summer of 1971 they toured Germany. Italy, Holland, and Belgium for eight 
weeks on their third USO tour to Europe.

The dramatic club of the College is The Millsaps Players, which presents The Millsaps 

four three-act plays each year. Major productions of recent years include "The Players 

American Dream," "The Sea Gull," "The Three-penny Opera." "My Fair 
Lady," "Julius Caesar," "Camelot," "Romeo and Juliet," "Medea," "Becket," 
"Androcles and the Lion," "The Zoo Story," "Camino Real," "Macbeth," 
"Luther," "Oliver!" "Antigone," and "The Lion in Winter." 

Membership in The Players is open to all students, and effective participa- 
tion in the productions earns one extracurricular credit each semester. 

The Millsaps Student Association is governed by the Student Senate and 
officers elected by the student body. The president, vice-president, secretary, 
and treasurer are elected annually from the student body. Members of the 
Student Senate are chosen by the groups which they represent. 

Meetings of the Student Senate are held weekly, with other meetings called 
when the student body president considers them necessary. All members of 
the student body automatically become members of the Student Association. 

The duties and functions of the Student Senate are to act in the administra- 
tion of Student affairs, to cooperate with the administration in the orientation 
program of the college, to apportion the student activities fee, to maintain un- 
derstanding between students and faculty, and to work for the benefit of the 
student body and for the progress of the College. 

Alpha Epsilon Delta is an honorary pre-medical fraternity, founded at the Honor 

University of Alabama in 1926. Its purpose is to promote the interests of pre- Societies 

medical students. Leadership, scholarship, expertness, character, and person- 
ality are the qualities by which students are judged for membership. Alpha 
Epsilon Delta strives to bridge the gap between pre-medical and medical 
schools. 

Alpha Psi Omega, a national honorary dramatic fraternity, recognizes mem- 
bers of the Millsaps Players for the effective participation in acting, directing, 
make-up, stage management, costuming, lighting, or publicity. Each year the 
name of the outstanding graduating senior member of the organization is en- 
graved on a trophy, which is kept in the college trophy case. 

Beta Beta Beta, established at Millsaps in 1968, is a national honor frater- 
nity for students in the biological sciences. Its purposes are to stimulate sound 
scholarship, to promote the dissemination of scientific truth, and to encourage 
investigation of the life sciences. Monthly meetings are held to discuss new 
ideas, research, and other material pertinent to biology and to related sciences. 
Activities include off-campus field trips and the invitation of nationally promi- 
nent lecturers to the campus. 

Chi Chi Chi membership is earned through outstanding scholarship in the 
study of chemistry. The organization promotes the interest of chemistry stu- 
dents by sponsoring numerous visiting lecturers, and by providing assistance 
to the Chemistry Department when needed.

The athletic policy of Millsaps College is based on the premise that athletics 
exist for the benefit of the students and not primarily to enhance the prestige 
and publicity of the college. 

It is believed that competitive sports, conducted in an atmosphere of good 
sportsmanship and fair play, can make a significant contribution, in the same 
w,ay as other student activities, to the complete physical, emotional, moral, and 
mental development of the well-rounded individual and that they are thus an 
integral part of a program of liberal education. Toward this end, an attempt is 
made to provide a sports-for-all program and to encourage as many students 
as possible to participate in some form of intramural or intercollegiate athletic 
competition. 

The program for men includes football, basketball, baseball, tennis, golf, 
archery, and track. There is no intercollegiate program for women. 

The program is conducted on guidelines established by the National Colle- 
giate Athletic Association of which Millsaps College is a member. 

Those who participate in intercollegiate athletics are required to observe 
and maintain the same academic standards as other students. 

In scheduling games, preference is given to colleges that conduct an athletic 
program on a basis similar to that at Millsaps. 

The program for men provides competition among campus organizations in 
basketball, volleyball, softball, tennis, track, soccer, and golf. Rules are made 
and administered by the Intramural Council, composed of student representa- 
tives with the Intramural Director as an ex-officio member. 

The program for women is administered by The Women's Intramural 
Council, whose student members head the teams that compete in such sports 
as badminton, volleyball, tennis, basketball, and softball. Election to the Ma- 
jorette Club provides recognition for athletic participation. 

The gymnasium provides a large playing floor for volleyball, badminton, 
and basketball. It has dressing rooms for all teams, a room for visiting teams, 
trainer's room complete with equipment for injuries, a class room, and shower 
and locker rooms for students.

STUDENT LIFE 



People . . . people . . . people— blondes, bru- 
nettes, titians— we have them all. But what 
makes them individuals is their many traits 
ranging from demandingly quiet seriousness to 
contagious boisterousness. Each has a distinct 
personality, but each is a vital part of Millsaps' 
student body.

It's an MP&L fact... 




Mississippi Power Light actively supported ways to 
protect our environment long before the word "Ecol- 
ogy" became common. 

Since the company was formed in 1923, efforts to- 
ward keeping generating plants, cooling lakes, local 
offices, vehicles, equipment, and rights-of-way clean 
have been emphasized by MP & L operations. MP & 
L backed the formation of and continues to support 
the "Keep Mississippi Beautiful" program. Through 
the years, MP&L has been an award winner in its 
work and cooperation with statewide programs to 
improve our environment. 

Not willing to rest on past performances, MP&L is 
increasing its efforts to help maintain an environment 
which promotes beauty, growth, and development. 

It's an MP&L fact . . . from MP&L you get more 
than electricity.
