Setting the Scene 

To many of us, student lite at Millsaps 
means a never-ending attack on the stu- 
dent of homework, tests, or just trying to 
keep up. We sit over our books knowing 
that we have to read the next 1 14 pages 
for Heritage tomorrow; but we'd rather be 
somewhere else. Suddenly, our wish 
comes true when someone says they're 

going to CS's for a beer and a video 
game. Should we go? Of course! 

We've been studying for an accounting 
or chemistry test for hours in the deep, 
dark stacks of the library or hidden in El- 
sinore, and come stumbling into our dorm 
room. Have the walls moved in a little or is 
it just our eyes? Our neighbor next door 

walks in and says "Let's go to Tastee's 
for OJ and a donut." All Right! 

These are just a few thoughts of the life 
of the Millsaps student. We've tried to 
capture as many facets of life here as 
possible, all the way from dressing prep 
to finals. If we missed one of your favorite 
activities, write it in the margin. 


Organization! Smooth operation! No 
more Red-tape! all of ttiese cries and 
many more were heard the week of Au- 
gust 24-28 as f\/lillsaps students, old and 
new, returned to register for classes. 

Registration has undergone a great 
change. Computers, the watchwords of 
modern day living, have taken hold of Mill- 
saps. Registration is now completely 
computerized. This simplifies matters for 
those in the Business Office, but does it 
simplify the situation for the students? 
Students no longer present class cards to 
professors but merely show up as a name 
and number on a computer printout sheet. 
What student wants to stand in line for 
two hours awaiting his turn in the Busi- 
ness Office only to find that the computer 
has not credited his payment? Oh, but, of 
course, computers don't make mistakes, 
do they!?! 

Computerization is an advance in that 
records are more easily sorted and kept 
up with. However, computerization be- 
comes a detriment to the school system 
when it overshadows personal contact 
between students and staff. Afterall,' Isn't 
that what Millsaps is all about?

Moving It All In 

Boxes, boxes, boxes! Hey, I've looked 
through all of my stuff and I can't find my 
shoes. Where are my shoes? Oh, yeah, I 
left them In the closet at the end of the 
hall. Oh, no!! The air conditioning unit is in 
there. My shoes have been moved — my 
shoes have been stolen! Who would want 
to steal somebody's shoes? Well, I can 
do without shoes but where is the cold 
air?? I can't stand it! Boy, what a way to 
come back to school. First all of my 
shoes are stolen, then there's no air con- 
ditioning! If I can just find my stuffed rab- 
bit. I'll be okay. Oh, no! I packed it in the 
closet, too. I hope it's still there. It isn't. 
Who would take my rabbit? It's mine and 
it's old and it's gone. . . . Sob. 


Moving In— 19 


Change. Does it bring to mind images of 
that which is brand new and exciting, or 
does it conjure up thoughts of uncertainty 
and confusion? No matter, whether for 
better or worse, a life without change 
would be unbearably boring. 

Millsaps is definitely not boring! 
Change occurs everywhere an unsu- 
specting student looks. From a price in- 
crease in Cokes to Garfield posters in the 
bookstore to a revamped security sys- 
tem, change runs rampant at Millsaps. 

One of the most obvious alterations is 
the installation of a guardhouse at the 
State Street entrance to Millsaps. "Does 
this ediface actually house a guard?", 
you ask. At varying times of the day and 

night, yes, a guard is there searching dili- 
gently for the new green glow-in-the-dark 
decals positioned, not on the bumper of 
the passing car, but on the right side of 
the windshield. Gates at the two West 
Street entrances and at the end of frat 
row modify the flow of traffic through cam- 
pus, but they also tamper with Millsaps 
traffic itself. A student of liberal arts, how- 
ever, learns to accept quickly. Therefore, 
although a little inconvenient, the gates 
prove to be no major problem. 

Change also struck the living quarters 
of Millsaps students — the dorms. The oc- 
cupants of Bacot, Sanders, and Galloway 
saw the demise of individual air-condi- 
tioning units and the birth and installation 
of new central air-conditioning systems. 
Government regulated temperatures and 

lowered ceilings were two results of this 
change. The interiors of Sanders, Ezelle, 
and Bacot were refurbished with new 
paint jobs and so seemed a bit nicer and 
cleaner. The renovation of Murrah Hall 
has been completed and use of the build- 
ing started in the Spring semester. The 
metamorphosis was greatly anticipated 
and awaited with baited breath. 

Millsaps alters from year to year. Some 
of the changes are welcomed, some de- 
spised. Some are thought to damage the 
college's image, some are thought to en- 
hance this image. Whether major or mi- 
nor, good or bad, change is an integral 
part of life and cannot be ignored. There- 
fore, we must keep open minds and flexi- 
ble spirits and learn to deal with it in the 
best way possible.

Campus Living 

Ezell hotel, Fae Franklin, Galloway, Ba- 
cot, and Sanders are all familiar to us, not 
to mention Fraternity Row. We have more 
freedom in visitation and less in tempera- 
ture control. We have cracks in the walls 
for character as what may be described 
as an example of Jackson's Yazoo clay. 
We have parties, popcorn, friendship, 
and noise. Even at three in the morning 
there are signs of life in the dorms as 
students burn the perverbial midnight oil. 
Life at Ivlillsaps campus can get difficult, 
but hardly ever boring; and living in a dorm 
or frat house is one of the more lively 
experiences of college.

Making the Money 

Money is one of the mainstays of 
society and Ivlillsaps is not left out. I^any 
students take on part-time jobs on and off 
campus to supplement themselves. 
Students who are eligible can get work- 
study or can become lab assistants.

In the last year lots of new Ideas about 
how to live apd enjoy yourself have come 
about. The fads of this country seem to 
reflect these trends. The Preppy look 
which has been around for sometime now 
is still with us and strong as ever. New 
Wave rock has influenced the trend of 
Punkers. In the realm of recreation, phys- 
ical fitness has become a national past- 
time. Jogging, aerobics, and others are 
all a part of the fitness fad. If physical 
activities are not enough for you, there is 
the Rubik's cube and its spinoffs to puz- 
zle the minds of all ages. Electronic 
games have also taken hold in the activi- 
ties of many. Pac-Man, Space Invaders, 
Centipedes, and Donkey Kong have the 
country in their grips. 

Millsaps is no exception to the rule. 
Ralph Lauren could survive on the busi- 
ness that Millsaps students alone give 

Fads strike and are gone, but are they 
ever really gone? Have you seen my min- 
iskirts lately?

"Those damn Yankees! The Washing- 
ton Senators just have to win the pennant 
this year!" Well, they certainly won the 
hearts of the Mlllsaps' community. Damn 
Yankees, the lively musical comedy, 
opened the season for the Millsaps Play- 
ers. The story of a middle-aged man who 
sells his soul to the devil in order to be- 
come a young, pennant-winning baseball 
star provided an exciting, fun-filled even- 
ing for all concerned.

Dangerous Corner 


^K<c y^^^^^^^^^l 








^^L ^ ^^H 

A gun shot, a black out . . . another you 
think. Ah, but you are wrong. Dangerous 
Corner, the second play in the Players' 
season, was a whodunit, but one of a dif- 
ferent sort. The sophisticated mystery in- 
volved much more than the ordinary 
Agatha Christie novel does. The surprise 
ending was unexpected and dumfound- 
ing. Who knows the truth? Who knows 
what lies around the Dangerous Corner? 

One Acts 

The one act plays are senior projects 
directed by theatre majors. Two were 
presented Fall semester. Shari 
Schneider directed The Browning Ver- 
sion, which tells the story of a retiring 
British prepatory professor. Susan Brind- 
ley and Jay Gotten co-directed Tiie Mar- 
oritz l-lamlet which was an extreme par- 
ody of the Shakespeare original.

Homecoming 1981 


Homecoming at Millsaps is one of the 
experiences that stand out for many of us. 
Almost everone turns up to cheer on the 
Home team to victory. The day was chilly, 
one of the few we had in the Fall semes- 
ter, and clear. Murrah Band provided a 
little background music for the activities 
on the ball field, as the Millsaps team won 
over the Maryville Scotsmen, and Ann 
Freeman was once more crowned Home- 
coming Queen.

Let it snow! Let it snow! 

Oh, the weather outside is frightful out 
. . . it's snowing, so who cares!? Millsaps 
students were given a belated Christmas 
present when they returned to campus 
after break. Snow, snow, and more snow! 
Classes were cancelled all week except 
for those few held on Wednesday. People 
went crazy! Everyone was out playing in 
the Millsaps version of the Winter Won- 
derland. They sledded, skiied, caught 
snowflakes on their tongues, and just 
walked around. Did you happen to see Dr. 
Knox sledding past? What about the fel- 
low who tried to ski in the Bowl. Surely 
you are one of the mass who were swish- 
ing across the bowl on cafeteria trays or 
sliding down the Bacot-Franklin parking 
lot. You must have seen President Har- 
mon bombarded by snowballs! No? Well, 
where on earth were you? In class? Oh, 
forget about that and ... let it snow!

When your senior year at Millsaps final- 
ly rolls around, certain unsettling ques- 
tions about the future begin to arise. This 
future is not 10 or 20 years away, but is 
only six months away. We are not speak- 
ing about what you will do for the rest of 
your life, but how you will manage to make 
it through comprehensive examinations 
and graduate. 

Comps are those mysterious series of 
tests in your major subject that you must 
take your senior year. Picture this: a small 
room, the click of the lock on the door, a 
small beam of light piercing through the 
darkness, the low mumblings of several 
professors, and you. The questions shoot 
forth incessantly: "What were the notable 
achievements of Henry IV and give the 
dates of his reign?"; "Explain the major 
themes of Walt Whitman's poetry": "Give 
the derivative of (1 — Arcsin(tanS))"; 
"Explain Weber's sociological perspec- 
tive of the self."; "Explain the lathanide 
contraction." After all of this questioning 
and much more, you walk out of the room 
and suddenly think, "What happens if I 
don't pass?" Terrifying visions of a 29- 
year old student wandering the halls of

AC come to mind and he is waiting to re- 
take comps . . . again. 

The good thing about comps is when 
you are finished the hard part of your col- 
lege career is over. Now all you have to 
do is get into graduate school or find a 
job. After comps, LSAT and MCAT seem 
like another one of those tests. Just think 
of all the thing you go through just to be 
able to have three meals a day and a

Controlling the Quality of Life 

The office of Student Affairs went 
thirough many chianges this past summer. 
Millsaps hired Jane MacDonald to assist 
Dean Good in directing student life. To- 
gether they have worked hard to change 
policies and improve student living condi- 
tions. Janice Streetman created a new 
career placement service for seniors and 
gave lectures on subjects of interest to 
students going out into the "Real World". 
Martha Galtney returned to Millsaps after 
an absence of several years. All the per- 
sonnel in the Student Affairs office strive 
to make life at Millsaps a quality life.

In the Limelight 

The Millsaps College community is for- 
tunate to sponsor several honoraries 
which serve to recognize individual excel- 
lence in the areas of academics and lead- 
ership. There are associations vjh\ch pro- 
mote general achievements while others 
serve to recognize superior work in spe- 
cific subject areas. Foreign languages 
are represented along with the sciences. 
Business majors also foster recognition 
as do the classics. Those students inter- 
ested in politics will also find a corre- 
sponding honorary. Whatever a student's 
area of excellence may be, Millsaps has 

an honorary group for them.

The Action Scene 

Whatever the interest may be — from 
conference sports to intramural chess — 
Millsaps' sports program has much to of- 
fer every athlete and fan. Instead of de- 
tracting from the general atmosphere, the 
diverse opinions and liberal attitudes at 
Millsaps help to stimulate and challenge 
each individual player to try his best to 
achieve personal as w/ell as team goals. 
The spirit and support from the student 
body makes every sporting event that 
much more exciting. The coaches' incen- 
tives and encouragement to their team 
members add that special cohesive ele- 

ment without which, a winning team could 
not exist. From the intense rivalry of intra- 
mural teams to a highly successful sea- 
son in varsity football, Millsaps is ever 
changing and always improving to demon- 
strate its consistent determination to win.

The 1982 Millsaps Majors came through with a very success- 
ful and impressive seven and two season. In the season opener, 
the Majors stomped Fisk 52-0 due to a high powered offense 
and stingy defense that held Fisk to a negative seven yards 
rushing. The next week, the Majors put together another victory 
against Southwestern by a score of 13-6 in a tough defensive 
struggle. The next win came against Sewanee by a score of 27- 
due to the fine talents of Daryl McLeod, Claude Arnett, Jesse 
McRight, James Henley, David Miller and Quarterback Byrd 
Hillman. The Majors met their first defeat in thirteen games the 
following week as Central Florida edged them 13-6, despite the 
Majors domination of the line of scrimmage for most of the day. 
In the next game, the Majors fell short again by a score of 6-3 
against West Georgia, with Chuck Smith putting up a 27 — yard 
field goal in a game dominated by the defense of both teams. 
Smith directed the Majors to their next win over Baptist Universi- 
ty with the star performance of James Henley who rushed for 
122 yards, the final score being 51-0. The Homecoming game 
against the division — leading Scots of Maryville saw the Majors 
with their hands full but being able to pull off a successful 33-6 
decision and 385 yards total offense in an excellent display by 
Byrd Hillman, Melvin Smith, Daryl McLeod, and Mike Torello. 
Millsaps improved their winning record by blitzing Baptist Chris- 
tian 50-0, limiting their opponents to a mere 37 yards total 
offense. The Majors rounded out the year by notching Miles 
College 16-12 as they managed 506 yards total offense with 
Byrd Hillman completing eight of fourteen passes for a total of 
100 yards.

Soccer 1981 

This year was Millsap's first year to hiave a varsi- 
ty — level soccer team. After struggling ttirough 
tvi^enty — six games in two and a half months, the 
Majors emerged with a 6-18-2 season. This record 
was due to inexperience (thirteen freshmen) and 
playing five schools in Division I and II, while Millsaps 
remains Division III in all sports. However, there is 
much hope in the future, because the Majors only 
lose two players, and the 1982 season promises to 
be very rewarding.

The Underlying 

Various organizations exist on the Mill- 
saps campus that allow students to pur- 
sue their individual interests. Political or- 
ganizations allow those students with 
leadership capabilities to funnel their in- 
terests in such a way that the entire cam- 
pus may benefit. Creative organizations 
serve to allow individuals to contribute to 
the Millsaps community through singing, 

acting, and in published work. All the 
groups at Millsaps foster a sense of uni- 
ty — they are an underlying framework — 
which allows the college community to 
achieve a sense of "oneness". Whatever 
the interest might be, there are opportuni- 
ties to develop those interests her at Mill-

The Student Executive Board attempt- 
ed to get students involved with campus 
activities this year. Leaders passed out 
pamphlets and held meetings in order to 
find out what students wanted out of Mill- 
saps' life. However, even with all their ef- 
fort, apathy still rules at Millsaps, and 
changes come very slowly, if at all. The 
Publications improved as well as dorm 
activities. In December, elections for 
1982 officers exchanged Billy Wheeler 
for Brad Chism as President, James Hen- 
ley for Peter Birdheim as First Vice Presi- 
dent, Andy Brown for Richard Birdsong as 
Second Vice President, Brad Cooper for 
Lauri Stamm as Secretary, and Denise

Caught Up In The Rush 

The nine Greek letter organizations on 
campus fill the unique needs of the stu- 
dents making up their membership. These 
sororities and fraternities are groups of 
collegiate women and men who have 
joined together for social, service, and 
intellectual purposes, with dedication to 
common ideals and goals, having bound 

themselves in a lifetime of sisterhood and 
brotherhood. "Formal Rush" took place 
the first week of school. Prospective 
"sisters" and "brothers" had opportuni- 
ties to meet and talk with active members 
during rush week and decided whether or 
not to pledge. Greek activities during the 
1981-1982 school year included Scholar- 

ship Competition, Spirit Competition at 
Homecoming, Intramurals, Greek Week, 
Swaps, Songfest, and Parties. Sororities 
and fraternities maintained their involve- 
ment in numerous campus, local, and na- 
tional activities, and each continued to 
uphold their reputations as valuable as- 
sets to the university community. 

Panhellenic Council 


The Panhellenic Council consists of elected members from each of the chartered Greek organizations on campus. The Council is 
responsible for organizing rush week and Greek week and is active in many community services. The Council continually promotes 
good sorority relations. Through good activities such as free movies and progressive dinners, the integrity of the Greek system on

Winding It Down 

The many businesses in Jackson con- 
tribute to the Millsaps Saga. Students pa- 
tronize the Jackson stores and restau- 
rants to relax and unwind and to get those 
much needed late night items. This year, 
Super Stop replaced Smith's as a late 
night shop because of the new gates. 
Students also head to the malls in Jack- 

son to eat and relax. The businesses in 
the area also contribute to the school it- 
self through advertising in the P & W and 
in the Bobastiela and by making dona- 
tions to the school. The Jackson busin- 
esses are an intregral part of the Millsaps
