Young women during the war years found the 
campus rather sedate in the absence of the 
men. They nevertheless pursued their educa- 
tion while enjoying a somewhat different "Mill- 
saps experience." 

Long recognized as one of the best 
and most unique institutions of higher 
learning in Mississippi and the South- 
east, Millsaps is on the verge of enter- 
ing an exciting new phase of its life. 
Recognition and praise on a more na- 
tional scale have made possible a very 
promising future for this small liberal 
arts school. 

The purpose of Millsaps College has 
been its core of strength throughout 
the years. Born with the promise by 
Major Reuben Webster Millsaps to 
create "a Christian college within the 
borders of the State", the school was 
founded in 1890 with the help of the 
Methodist Church. The small school 
was built on the outskirts of the tiny 
capital city of Jackson, consisting 
merely of a main building and a hand- 
ful of students and faculty members.

An arch? No security station? Our familiar State 
Street entrance has grown with the rest of the 
campus over the years. 

The promise of providing a solid 
education for young people was fore- 
most in determining the growth of the 
school — and grow it has. Not only have 
numerous students, professors and 
buildings come and gone through the 
years, but the academic program has 
continually adapted to the needs of the 
student. With the liberal arts as its ba- 
sis, the college has aimed to cover the 
spectrum of learning, from the latest in 
scientific technology to the earliest 
works of classical civilizations. 

Not only youthful undergraduates 
make up the student body these days. 
Older students may be found in the 
Adult Degree Program or pursuing a 
master's degree from the School of 
Management. With such programs and 
national recognition from major maga- 
zines and college guides, enrollment 
continues to rise, now topping 1,000.

The growth of the college shows no 
sign of slowing in the future. With 
Phase I of the long-range upgrade plan 
for the school recently completed, im- 
plementation of Phase II is already un- 
derway. The donation of $5.15 million 
for the construction of a new biology- 
/chemistry building by the Olin Foun- 
dation started the ball rolling this year. 
The Olin Building, due to be ready for 
occupancy by the start of the '87-88 
school year, will be the first part of a 
major campus overhaul. Included in 
this will be a complete renovation of 
Sullivan-Harrell Hall, a large extension 
to the library, new dorms and a rerout- 
ing of campus traffic. The $30 million 
Phase II goals of the Millsaps College 
Centennial Development are hoped to 
be realized in a few years, in time for 
the 100th anniversary of the college.

professors will always be the demand-

Major Millsaps made the first prom-

time, the promise has grown, nurtured 
by the growth and achievements of the 
past. It is therefore with pride that we

what do you mean — study in advance for a test? What a preposterous 
idea! Sure, you think about it. You know that big test is Friday. But today 
is Sunday, and Sunday is a day of rest. You'll study Monday. Monday 
comes. Mondays are always bad days. Well, you still have three more 
nights to read those five chapters. 

Tuesday rolls around, it's imperative that you attend a meeting. After- 
ward, your favorite programs are on television. 

Wednesday is another day. You get this sudden urge to study for 
Friday's test. Ten, maybe fifteen minutes pass. It's Welfare Wednesday! 
Who would be crazy enough to stay home tonight? 

Okay, serious business — it's now Thursday. Oh, the drudgery of cram- 
ming for a test! How do you condense three week's studying into one 

The first necessity in preparing for this nightmare is a trip to jitney 14. 
Coffee, No-Doz, and a few snacks begin this "night of the living zom- 
bie." You know the dorm will be far too rowdy, so you drag all your 
books to the library and plop them down at a desk on the first floor. 
However, it seems to be social hour there. Load up the books once 
again — second floor — private study rooms — that's where serious study- 
ing takes place. 

Eleven o'clock rolls around. Devastation — you've only studied two 
chapters. You meekly smile as the librarian locks the door behind you — 
the last person to leave the library. 

Well, it's back to the dorm. Doesn't your roommate look comfortable 
sawing logs? Quietly, you fix a cup of coffee, grab a bag of potato chips, 
and sit down at your desk to continue boggling your mind. As the clock 
quickly ticks away, you realize more and more that you should have 
prepared for this test. After a while, the words on the page become very 
blurry, and that tenth cup of coffee tastes like mud. 

A pizza break is in order. You find one lone studier down the hall and 
call Domino's. Forgetting that they closed an hour ago, you run to Super 
Stop and get a piece of chicken and a couple of jo-jo potatoes— yum— 
food for thought. 

Meanwhile, back at the dorm, the books are calling your name. You 
feel a little sick at your stomach after that bizarre dining experience, but 
you have to push on. 

Okay, now you deserve a ten minute nap. Just lay your head down on 
those books. You will burn tomorrow. Great! The next thing you feel is 
your roomate shaking you vigorously. " Don't you have a test at 8:00? 
Well, it's 7:45." 

You spring to your feet, wash your face, grap a few pencils, and dash 
out the door. You made it though the night. You didn't study like you 
knew you should — but, of course, as you always vow — you WILL be 
prepared for the next test.

It All Comes Out in the 


Millsaps Announces Creation of New Department 

Millsaps College has added a new 
Laundry department as part of its con- 
tinuing commitment to meet student 
needs and interests. The suprise an- 
nouncement has left many staunch de- 
fenders of Millsaps' avowed liberal arts 
rather fluffed. 

Besides offering a major in laundry, 
the introductory sequence, "Laundry 
101-102 Fundementals of Laundry," will 
now be required of all incoming fresh- 
men and will be counted as a lab science 
in their core requirements. Citing in- 
stances of freshmen doing laundry ac- 
cording to mothers' messages taped to 
clothes baskets or allowing unwashed 
garments to stagnate until Christmas, 
the Administration feels such a manda- 
tory course will benefit the entire com- 

Students are generally in favor of the 
new class, saying it will be fun and infor- 
mative, yet simple enough to boost 
their GPA's. Opposition is from many 
starchy faculty who feel the new de- 
partment is too "technically oriented to 
be in keeping with the educational 
character of Millsaps." 

Dean of Students Stuart Good de- 
fended the Administration's decision 
by giving the following argument: 
"When students arrive at college, they 
must learn new skills which will enable 
them to function as productive adults in 
society. One rite of initiation is learning 
to do their own laundry. We feel the 
required course will fascilitate a 
smoother transition from irresponsibil- 
ity to subsequent maturity. We are not 
disposing of the tradition of fine liberal 

education at Millsaps; rather, we are at- 
tempting to fill a vacuum in the curricu- 
lum and be progressive, it is courses like 
this that get the college labeled as a 
"trend setter" by national reports." 

Dr. Allen Bishop was offered the 
chairmanship of the fledgling depart- 
ment but declined saying, "All my spare 
time is being spent with my company 
which produces dinitro-chickenwire." 
Attempts were made to contact Presi- 
dent George M. Harmon about the new 
department, but no one in Whitworth 
has ever seen the man when he wasn't 
smiling at and shaking hands with peo- 
ple who would give the college large 
sums of money to build new buildings 
and reduce the already minimum park- 
ing space. 


Sophomore Kurt Kraft diligently studies his textbook "Basic Laundry" while 
doing his first laundry lab experiment. Kurt is one of the students selected to 
pioneer this new and exciting course. 

What temperature would you use to

Millsaps' "Hot Spots'' 

Where did YOU go out at night?! 

Christo's— Famous for its $2.75 pitchers, this was a 
good spot on Thursday night. 

CS's— There is probably no other place that draws 
Millsaps students so well as this "hot spot". Inez 
Burgers and Cheese Fries (as well as the brewskies) 
are popular items on the menu. 

W.C. Don's — Cheap beer and a pretty good band 
are the "Major" draws of this little night spot lo- 
cated behind the fast food shop on West Street. 

Everyone knows that college students need a 
place (or three or four) to go to blow off a little 
steam (and a test or two) every now and then. But 
just where do all the Millsapians trek off to when 
the sun begins to melt slowly over the horizon 
and the moon glimmers lightly through the 
clouds? The first migration appears to be toward 
CS's, probably because it is closest to campus. 
Shortly thereafter, a group will split off and head 
in the direction of Christo's — being drawn by the 
$2.75 pitchers and large T.V. screen. As the even- 
ing wears on, the dispersion continues as students 
are found enjoying music at George Street, and 
W.C. Don's. Dr. Feelgood's is also another spot 
where students can do just that — feel good (after 
all the cheap brew). For those who like to dance 
and those who like to reach in the closet and pull 
out those "dancing shoes" there was the infamous 
jack's. But alas, the moonbeams begin to fade and 
the sun peeks slowly over the eastern horizon and 
the night life settles back into the everyday life of 
an ordinary Millsaps College student. Just know- 
ing that there will be another night out is enough 
to sustain one. And where will YOU go out then?? 

24 Hot Spots 

Above — A newcomer to the Millsaps "hot spot" list, Dr. Feelgood's attract- 
ed its share of regulars. Right Holly?! Left — George Street is a place where 
one could get away from the bustling night life and relax to some easy 
listening tunes upstairs. Below— Sexuality Quiz . . . How many of you know 
where this is? How many of you will admit it?! Actually, this closet door 
located in the heart of downtown was frequented by many Millsaps students 
for various reasons. The dancing alone was a superb draw along with Beer 
Bust and friends. Jack's is definitely on the list of "hot spots."

SURF ...

the beach for spring break. Here, one student shows her enthu-

Spring Break. That's the time that all students look forward 
to the most, except (of course) for summer. From the time the 
fall semester gets underway, students get together with their 
friends and begin to plan what they will do when the much 
needed break arrives in March. Plans vary, but the "usual" 
hot spots such as Florida and the mountains get the majority 
of the students. During 1986, Millsaps students journeyed to 
Destin, Panama City, Fort Lauderdale (where our friends bar- 
ely escaped an escapade with the police), Mexico, Carribbean 
cruise, and Colorado. Quite often, fraternities will organize 
trips to go snow skiing for their members. Other groups 
rented beach houses for the week and soaked up the rays, 
while still others just went "beach camping". But no matter 
where it was spent. Spring Break '86 was quite a time for 
everyone— even for those who stayed home and studied for 
things like the MCAT.

parents. The weather was perfect for 
all the outdoor festivities. On Friday 
and Saturday there were picnics in 
the bowl and pep-rallies. The cheer- 
leaders were "kidnapped" by "mys- 
terious strangers," but just in the nick 
of time the Millsaps Major came to 
their rescue! 

Saturday, student organizations 
made elaborate homecoming floats. 
Millsaps played Washington in the 
football game. At the half-time cere- 
mony President Harmon crowned 
Mary Vassar Ballard as the 1985 
Homecoming Queen.

One of the highlights of every spring at Millsaps is the Annual 
Classics Banquet. The banquet is hosted by Eta Sigma Phi at the 
home of Catherine and Richard Freis. It is a time when classics 
students get together with their friends and celebrate "Roman- 
Style." Speaking of the banquet Terry Parker said, "It's the best 
party all year, no kidding!" The guest of honor this year was a 
huge roast pig which was quickly eaten. For the third year in a 
row Stuart Green led Greek dances in the Freis' back yard, 
"One, two, three, kick! One two, three kick!: Back by popular 
demand, Andrew Libby, David Moore, and Paige Sibley enter- 
tained the party-goers with scenes from the Oresteia. Everyone 
had a great time and left the party feeling a little more Roman 
than before.

repeated because vandals burned down the 

first town. Here students and teachers build

alas, it was not meant to be. Gradu- 
ation 1986 — better known as The F 
asco 1986— was held in the Christian 
Center Auditorium for the first time 
in years. The administration kept 
hoping the 'gray skies were going to 
clear up', but the rain kept coming. 
Despite the weather and the over- 
crowded auditorium, graduation was 
quite a success. Baccalaureate ser- 
vices were held at Galloway Method- 
ist Church that Mother's Day morn- 
ing. During the afternoon, there was 
a reception honoring the Seniors, a 
showing of the Senior art exhibit, a 
music recital by graduating music 
students, and a ceremony to initiate a 
faculty member into ODK. The day 
concluded with the traditional cere- 
mony and conferring of degrees.

Each residence hall has a resident di- 
rector who is available to aid the stu- 
dents and spuervise all aspects of the 
hall. In most cases, each wing has a resi- 
dent assistant to answer questions, ad- 
vise the living unit, and provide person-

Millsaps College has a tradition of excellence which ex- 
tends not only to its faculty and students, but also to its publi- 
cations. One of these publications which never seems to get 
the recognition it deserves is the Stylus. Published twice a 
year, this literary magazine contains the creative works of 
many Millsaps students. Included among the pages are pho- 
tos, fiction, poetry, and artwork. The staff has quite a decision 
to make before publication of the magazine because so many 
pieces are submitted. Editors are chosen each semester for 
the following semester.

Beta Beta Beta 

Beta Beta Beta was established at Mill- 
saps College in 1968. It is a national hon- 
or society for students in the biological 
sciences. The purposes of Tri-Beta are 
to stimulate sound scholarship, pro- 
mote the dissemination of scientific 
truth, and to encourage the investiga- 
tion of the life sciences. Monthly meet- 
ings are held to discuss new ideas, re- 
search, and other material pertinent to 
biology and related sciences. 

This year. Beta Beta Beta decided to 
do a little charity work. After some re- 
search, it was decided that the group 
would raise money for David Minga, a 
boy from Pearl, Mississippi with a rare 
skin disease. Because his father had ob- 
tained a raise in salary, the government 
cut off their aid to the family for the 
extremely high medical bills. Tri-Beta 
held a Student-Faculty Basketball game 
to raise the money. Raffle tickets were 
also sold by the members. The event 
was well publized by the group and the 
media and the event was quite a suc-

Campus Ministry Team 

One of the highlights of the year for 
the Campus Ministry Team was the 
Anti-Apartheid Week. During the 
week, a film was shown on the issue and 
a speaker came and spoke about apart- 
heid. At the end of the week, the orga- 
nization built a Shantytown to depict 
life in South Africa. The event was quite 
a success, drawing students of all walks 
of life together for the project. It was 
unfortuante that some student(s) 
thought it cute to set the Shantytown 
aflame early Friday morning.

letters to the editor 

The Bobashela wishes to extend to its 
sister pubMcation, the Purple and 
White, its sincerest apologies for not 
giving the paper its due recognition in 
past yearbooks. In the past, the familiar 
"Staff" box has been substituted as a 
group shot of the P&W staff. We, the 
Bobashela staff, realize how extremely 
hard the paper staff works to publish a 
paper each week and we believe they 
deserve more than a mere mention in 
our publication. Each week, members 
of the staff research, write, type, and 
layout stories for that week's P&W. On 
Monday nights, the group works fer- 
vently for however long it takes to have 
the paper ready for press the following 
morning. This takes patience and ex- 
treme dedication on the part of the edi- 
tor and the staff, and the Bobashela 
wishes to recognized this effort in the 
1986 Bobashela. Congratulations and 
keep up the good work! 

Laying out the paper takes creative thinking and 
ots of time. David and Amy have shown a great 
deal of both. 

Typesetting is a difficult task which Angle does

The Millsaps Singers 

One word can sum up this year of the Singers- 
Exciting! From the moment the semester began, it 
was one new and adventurous concert after an- 
other. The year began with George Guest, from 
England. He chose the Singers as his model work- 
shop choir while he was in Mississippi. And then 
there was the 50th Anniversary Concert featuring 
Beethoven's Fantasy, Beowulf, and The Trumpet 
of the Swan (text by Eudora Welty and score by 
Samuel Jones). This was the biggest event the 
Singers participated in. There was also the annual 
Fall Concert, a weekend tour of north Mississippi, 
and the annual production of The Messiah featur- 
ing student soloists. In the spring the Singers jour- 
neyed to south Mississippi for another weekend 
tour. Later, they sang for the MCDA convention 
in Oxford, where they received high praise by all. 
The Singers also sang for the kickoff banquet of 
the second phase of the campaign to raise $30 
million. In addition their Spring Concert, the sing- 
ers combined with several choirs and the Jackson 
Symphony to perform Beethoven's Ninth Sym- 
phony. As one can see, this year was quite exciting 
and successful. 

Choir members join to sing in the 50th Anniversa- 
ry Concert. 

Such an outstanding choir would not be possible 
without an outstanding accompanist such as A. 
Lee Barlow, shown here on the organ.

Again, this was a year of change for the Troubadours. They 
threw out those flashy outfits from 1985 and took on the look 
of young college prepster in 1986 with their striped button- 
downs and white sweater vests. The type of music they per- 
formed also changed this year, but it seemed to be a continu- 
ation of what was begun last year. The show was more of a 
variety show than a Broadway Revue. It featured segments for 
the country fans, the Broadway babes, the "golden oldies", 
and just some plain old fun tunes. The Troubadours were part 
of the Arts and Lecture series this year and performed several 
times out of town. They also performed for several private 
groups in Jackson and during exams they performed a short- 
ened version of the show for the Board of Trustees Banquet. 

In April, the Troubadours performed their show for the 
student body and the event was an overwhelming success. 
Favorite tunes from the show included: Varsity Drag", "Don't 
Touch That Dial", "Blue Moon", "Sing, Sing a Song", "Next 
To Lovin' ", "Sillouettes", and "Memory". For the Troubs, 
memorable events (not necessarily sentimental ones, either) 
included: Keith's ticket . . . Leigh Ann's sprained knee . . . 
Suzanne's jumping on the back fettish . . . the Board of Trust- 
ees "Dinner" . . . the 'Can we meet you there' syndrome . . . 
the sliding glass floor of the Recital Flail . . . Eleni and the Altos 
(an abbreviated version) . . . Keith rushes the "Next to Lovin' " 
beat . . . Scot's timing on the opening of "Don't Touch That 
Dial" . . . "Aren't you glad you use Dial!? ..."... Jimmy's 
backwoods accent . . . "But Linda, (puff, puff) we can't do all 
that and sing, too!!!" . . . "Ya'll are behind the beat!" . . . Laura 
and Jamie, what are you doing? . . . Show Stoppers!! 

The story of a nerd and her nerdy boyfriend, "Blue Moon" was fun to view 
and fun to do so. I'll still get you for that Dr. Coker! 

The Troubs anxiously "watch" "The Lone Ranger" as Scot Newell prepared 
to introduce the crowd to "Don't Touch That Dial". Having Fun Keith?

Millsaps Welcomes Delta Delta Delta! In October three 
sororities made presentations for the faculty and students. 
Millsaps then invited Tri Delta to come on campus. 

On March 21, 22, and 23, Delta Delta Delta National came 
to Jackson. That weekend rush parties and interviews were 
held and bids were extended. Thus began Gamma Zeta Chap- 
ter of Delta Delta Delta. 

Tri Delta was originally founded at Boston University on 
Thanksgiving Eve ,1888. It was the first women's fraternity to 
be founded as a national organization with complete plans for 
governmental structure and expansion. Tri Delta is a member 
of the National Panhellenic Conference. One major philan- 
thropy supports research and treatment of cancer in chil- 
dren. Tri Delta's symbols include the pearl, pine, pansy, and

Steve Fuson out runs one defender while dodging 
another in the game against Sewanee. 

The Sewanee offense is stopped cold by the Ma- 
jor's defensive line. 

The Majors had another All-Ameri- 
can this year in Tommy Powell, a fine 
defensive end for the past four years. 
This is the only official All-American 
team chosen in Division III and only 22 
players are picked in ail the NCAA and 
NAIA Division 11. 

The 1985 football Majors will go 
down as a hard working team that was 
excellent on both sides of the football. 
The team had fine players at every posi- 
tion and the depth was exceptional with 
good replacements at every position. 
This gave the Majors winning seasons in 
eighteen of the past nineteen and this 
being unsurpassed by any senior col- 
lege in Mississippi. 

Once again the defense does its job well, shown 
here against Tennessee Wesleyan. 

The Majors offense was one of the strongest in 
our division.

Football 131 


This was one of the strongest teams that Millsaps has field- 
ed in the history of the college itself. The team had more 
depth than any other Major teams and this was quality depth. 
Therecord was, again, a winning one. Millsaps finished 21st in 
the national rankings in the NCAA Division III. 

Our tailback, Ricky Johnson, ranked twelveth in scoring 
nationally with 84 points, and sixteenth in rushing with 1,004 
total rushing yards. The team as a whole ranked third nation- 
ally in scoring defense by allowing only 55 points, sixth in 
rushing defense by allowing an average of 53.5 yards per 
game, and seventh in total defense by only giving up 204.9 
yards to our opponents. The offensive team ranked nine- 
teenth in scoring offense with an average of 28.17 points per 
game and twelfth in rushing with an average of 232.2 yards 
per game.

The sideline gang provided support and assistance during the season. 

The 1986 Millsaps Majors Men's Soccer team suffered a num- 
ber c0 losses during the year. Not only was the season a losing 
one, but they lost a teammate, Dennis Mlakar, to an automobile 
accident. The rest of the season was difficult without Dennis, 
but the team courageously plodded on. The schedule was a 
difficult one with a brutal road schedule. The team was young 
and inexperienced this year and injuries caused many problems. 
Next year they will return seven starters and the prospect for 
the young players looks great.

The year 1986 was the inaugural year 
for women's varsity soccer. Actually, 
the program is the first in the state of 
Mississippi and once again Millsaps is 
the trend setter. Although the season 
was not a winning one, the team is to be 
highly commended for their record in 
the first year. Team members were very 
young and inexperienced. However, 16

The 1986 Millsaps baseball team was 
one of the youngest teams Millsaps has 
ever fielded. The starting nine included 
7 sophomores, 1 junior, and 1 senior. As 
the season progressed the team ma- 
tured and became stronger and stron- 
ger. The Majors are looking eagerly to- 
ward the upcoming 1987 season, feeling 
that the experience gained this season 
has helped them improve greatly.

Intramurals are an important part of 
the sports program at Millsaps. This or- 
ganization gives those students who de- 
sire to play sports but who are either 
not good enough to make the varsity 
team or who just like to play for fun a 
chance to compete against their peers 
in a variety of sports. The intramural 
program is run by George Gober and an 
Intramural Council. These people drew 
up the constitution, set the rules, hear 
protests, and organize each sport. 

s^'^j^kT^, Lambda Chi Cory Acuff pitches for his softball 
^'*''"^ team. 

Some intramural games draw quite a crowd, par- 
ticularly if rival teams are playing. 

Intramurals 155 


Each new year brings more and more students into the 
Intramural program. Fraternities and sororities sponsor sev- 
eral teams each and the Independents often have more than 
one team playing each sport. When Tri-Delta colonized this 
spring, it was just a matter of days before they had their teams 
in the program. Quite often, the names of the teams are as 
much fun as the sports themselves. From simple names like 
Phi Mu #1 and Independents to creative names which we 
dare not print and those which have meaning only to the 
players themselves, the names say quite a bit about the team. 
Trophies are given in each category of sports at the end of the 
year so competition is often quite tough. But for whatever 
reason one plays intramurals, the program is an important 
one and will continue to grow at Millsaps.

The addition of the Major to the squad this year helped to boost spirits even 
more. The character has quite a personality! 

The Millsaps Cheerleaders should be commended for the 
job they do in boosting the spirit of the students. The squad is 
responsible for all signs used before and during games, for 
holding pep rallies, and they go to and from out of town 
games at their own expense to support the Majors. This year, 
the squad added a new member to the group— The Major. 
Upon the arrival of the costume in September, a special elec- 
tion was held to determine who would portray the character. 
Elections for cheerleaders are held each spring for the fol- 
lowing fall.

In Memoriam 

Dennis Paul Mlakar 

David Walicer Meeks 


Anthony Cloy, Editor; Leigh Ann Burns, Assistant editor. Not pictured is Cory Acuff, Photography 

We hope that our attempt to capture the spirit of Millsaps from its beginning 
to the present has been a successful one. 

The production of a yearbook is never an easy task, and I would like to thank 
all those who pitched in to get the job done. My deepest gratitude goes to Leigh 
Ann and Cory, who worked incessantly throughout the year to get information 
and pictures. I would also like to recognize the section editors who managed to 
turn out their sections with little or no staff— and thanks to those few staffers 
who did show up to help. 

I would like to thank Dean Good for always being there to lend an administra- 
tive hand, and our company representative Mr. J.C. Anthony for giving techni- 
cal advice. Thanks also to the SBA for assisting us with the election of class 
favorites and to the P&W and Stylus for being "good neighbors". 

Again, I hope that this volume of the Bobashela accurately reflects life at 
Millsaps and conveys our optimism for its future. 

Anthony Cloy, Editor
