"Self-reliance with a sense of community
The most searching question that can be
asked of a college is "What sort of person
does it produce?" In its statement of the
purpose of the college drafted in 1955-56,
the Faculty and Board of Trustees stated
that "Millsaps College has as its primary
aim the development of men and women for
rounded lives of useful service to their fel-
low men, their country, and their God. The
desired result is an intelligent, voluntary
dedication to moral principles and a grow-
ing social consciousness that will guide him
into a rich, well-rounded Christian life with
ready acceptance of responsibility to neigh-
bor, state, and church." The 1 987-88 school
year was one of introspection where stu-
dents examined both their own actions and
the policies of the Administration. They
took a critical look at Millsaps College to
see if it was meeting its intended purpose.
This annual is an attempt to piece together
the facts and bring some understanding to
the events of the past school year.
In college there is a tension between the
individual and the community. The college
should be committed to meeting the needs
of the individual, but it should also be guid-
ed by the concerns of the community. Stu-
dents should be developed into indepen-
dent, self-reliant human beings, yet they
should also learn a sense of community.

'Communication is the key to community
The college should remind students that
there is an intellectual and social communi-
ty to which they are connected, both within
the student body and the outside world. In
order to function effectively in this commu-
nity, the student needs to see the relation-
ship between what he learns and how he
lives. He should look for the underlying
meaning of what he learns and seek to apply
that knowledge to the dilemnas of everyday
Millsaps seeks to build community from
the moment that the student arrives on
campus, and much preparation goes into
making the transition from high school to
college a smooth one. It was announced in
October that, based on the findings of a
study group, changes in Rush were being
studied. After students expressed dissatis-
faction with the decision, President Har-
mon agreed in November to postpone any
decision on Rush. In February, the Task
Force on the Freshman Experience was es-
tablished in order to present a recommen-
dation for a restructuring of the freshman
experience. The desired goal is to bond
freshmen to Millsaps first and then to other
aspects of the school.
It is important in any community to have
open lines of communication between all its

members. On October 27, a "Call the
Bluff student rally was held to protest the
growing communication gap between ad-
ministration and students. SBA President,
Mark McCreery was quoted by the P & W
as saying, "It is time to say no to a manage-
ment style with no concern for our goals
and objectives." The specific complaints
dealt with the closing of the children's day
care center and the rescheduling of Rush

the students were governed by the adminis-
tration. The rally received coverage in the
Jackson Daily News and the Clarion Led-
ger, as well as being covered by local televi-
sion. The Effective Communication Com-
mittee was established to prevent a totally
downward flow of communication from the
administration to the students, and the All-
College Council was established to give all
interested people a chance to express them-
selves. Both were designed in an effort to

Millsaps showed a committment to find-
ing ethical solutions to community prob-
lems when it held the Consultation on the
Status of Minority Students. Its goal was to
increase the number of minority students at
Millsaps and enhance their experience —
first by finding out why so few minority
students were then present and then by
finding solutions to the problem. A steering
committee was established after the consul-
tation to look into different areas of the
situation. The consultation was made possi-
ble by a grant from The Board of Higher
Education and the Ministry of the United
One event which recognized the impor-
tance of what goes on outside the classroom
was the Alcohol Awareness Week held
after the return from Fall Break. It was
intended to promote alcohol education, de-
cision making skills, and positive peer influ-
ence. The week served as the highlight of a
year-round emphasis on alcohol education
by Millsaps and the importance it places on
the individuals' decisions of use or non-use.
Truly educated people must gain per-
spective by seeing themselves in relation to
others. The organization known as the
Cross Cultural Connection attempted to
provide a sense of belonging for interna-
tional and minority students by offering a
forum for the exchange of cultural ideas,
knowledge and values. CCC was responsi-
ble for sponsoring such things as a Friday
Forum entitled "Slavery and Freedom:
Comparing the United States with South
Africa" and the visit of Arun Gandhi. An
initial sign-up list of fifty-six people showed
how Millsaps students want to learn outside
the classroom. Continued on page 11

"Teachers play an important role
Millsaps got involved with the outside
community through the Student Sympo-
sium entitled "Changing Values in Amer-
ica," the symposium dealt with the question
of whether the American value system was
changing or if it still reflected traditional
American concepts and values. The sympo-
sium featured a range of speakers including
Dr. Ronald Sider who spoke on "Evangeli-
cal Theory of Public Policy;" Reverend
William Fore who spoke on "The Replace-
ment of the Modern Day Value System;"
and Reverend Donald Wildmon whose top-
ic was "People Change, Values Don't."
In developing a sense of community at
Millsaps, teachers play a vital role. While
having command of the material which
they teach, the Millsaps faculty also had an
enthusiasm about the abilities of their stu-
dents and their potential for understanding
ideas. The faculty also steps-out into the
intellectual community outside Millsaps. In
1 987 one teacher in particular showed com-
mand of his field of history by writing a
book entitled, The End of the Conservative
Era. Dr. Robert McElvaine, a professor
here since 1973, looked at popular movies,
music and television to predict a swing back
The broader social community also
played an important role at Millsaps this
past year. The Millsaps Tower was the gift
of McCarty Farms in honor of the com-
pany's founder and chairman, H.F.
McCarty, Jr., his wife and their children.
President Harmon offered the hope that
"the essential idea of Millsaps College and

The Franklin W. Olin Hall of Science
was dedicated during Founder's Day cele-
bration on February 13, 1988. Millsaps
competed against 93 other colleges and uni-
versities to be the first college in Mississippi
to receive a grant from the Olin Founda-
tion. The $5.5 million grant was evidence of
Millsaps' high degree of academic excel-
lence. The building makes available sophis-
ticated equipment for undergraduate use.
It is possible to list many different pur-
poses for a liberal arts education. Some
have said that education is something that
is left when we have forgotten what we
learned. It is frequently said in regard to the
classical education of British universities
that "the truly educated person should feel
at home in the world anywhere in the
world." In a book entitled. The Undergrad-
uate Experience in America, Ernest Boyer
concludes that "the aim of the undergrad-
uate experience is not only to prepare the
young for productive careers, but also to
enable them to live lives of dignity and pur-
pose; not only to generate new knowledge,
but to channel that knowledge to humane
ends; not merely to study government, but
to help shape a citizenry that can promote
the public good." This is the goal for which
Millsaps is striving,

Presenting the Olin
The Olin Building is the
product of a seven-year quest by
the Science Faculty and Ad-
ministration of Millsaps Col-
lege. It was funded by a $5.5
million grant by the Franklin
M. Olin Foundation which is
headquartered in Minneapolis,
Minnesota. The interesting
thing is that the Olin Founda-
tion gives most of its grants to
schools in the Midwest and
Northeast; Millsaps is one of
the two Southern Schools that
las been awarded a grant.
When the Olin Foundation
? unds something like a science
Duilding, they insist that the
Duilding be furnished with new
jquipment. The new equipment
was founded by a grant from
:he National Science Founda-
ion and money from the school,
rhe new equipment cost a total
)f $400,000 and includes the
most advanced technology
available to any college or uni-
versity. Dr. Allen Bishop asserts
that all of the hardware and
software "are on the cutting
edge of technology." The list of
chemistry equipment, which
sounds like it is straight out of
Star Wars, includes a Nuclear
Magnetic Resonance Spec-
trometer, a Fourier Transform
which identifies organic com-
pounds, an Atomic Absolution
Spectrophotometer which ana-
lyzes metal ions in solutions, a
graphite furnace, and fourteen
new computer terminals to
name just a few. The new equip-
ment for the Biology Depart-
ment includes an electron mi-
croscope which has a magnifi-
cation capability of 200, 000X,
an Environmental Chamber,
equipment which separates
genes, physiology equipment
which is more advanced than
that of the University Medical
Center, and much, much more.
The Olin Building itself is
well-thought-out and well built.
In contrast to what usually hap-
pens to other colleges and uni-
versities, the Biology and
Chemistry faculty at Millsaps
were allowed a great deal of in-
put in the design and construc-
tion of the building. All of the
lecture rooms are very comfort-
able and quite luxurious, and
the laboratories are top-notch
in design and function. The fac-
ulty states that the building is a
"great deal" in terms of usabi-
lity, space, and opportunities
for research. Dr. Allen Bishop
said that the Olin Building is
"the most advanced undergrad-
uate science facility in the na-
tion, and it's exciting to be able
to do all the things we wanted to
do, whereas in the past, all we
could do was wave our hands
and talk about it." It is unfortu-
nate, however, that even with
all this wonderful equipment,
the professors cannot conduct
any appreciable amount of re-
search because they are so en-
cumbered by the excessive
number of teaching hours the
administration requires them to

A questioning, critical spirit searches for
truth. This attitude is at the heart of the
Millsaps' liberal arts education, a school of
thought which balances the importance of
one's scholarship with one's social growth.
It is no surprise, then, that the faculty and
the students of Millsaps actively question
established ideas both in and out of the
Currently, an example of this spirit is
seen in the formation of the "Consultation
on the Status of Minority Students at Mill-
saps," a committee which responded to the
inquires presented by various groups in
1987 concerning the treatment of Millsaps'
minorities. The Consultation that was
formed attempted to deal with many prob-
lems which face minorities daily, such as
alienation, a lack of support structures, and
the seemingly weak recruitment procedures
for minorities. The Consultation, which
met on October 9 and 10, 1987, was direct-
ed by the distinguished United Methodist
Church leader Reverend Jack Loflin. It
was attended by one hundred and sixteen
representatives of various constituencies of
the college: the six academic divisions.
Board of Trustees, Executive Committee of
the college, the Millsaps Alumni Associ-
ation, the Boards of Higher Education of
the two United Methodist Conferences in
Mississippi, and members of campus orga-
nizations. The Millsaps' Chaplain Don For-
tenberry, the overall director of the Consul-
"The silver trump of freedom had roused my soul to eternal wakefulness.
Freedom now appeared, to disappear no more forever. It was heard in every
sound, and seen in every thing. It was ever present to torment me in a sense of my
wretched condition. I saw nothing without seeing it, I heard nothing without
hearing it, and felt nothing without feeling it. It looked from every star, it smiled
in every calm, breathed in every wind and moved in every storm."

tation, states the scope and purpose of the
group: "To me, the central purpose of this
organization is to increase the number of
minority students and to effectively mini-
mize the racial and ethnic differences that
limit full participation in the college."
At the meeting, the various comments
which were submitted revealed that people
at Millsaps are divided by race just as peo-
ple are elsewhere. Clearly, a rift that sepa-
rates Millsaps, Mississippi, and the United
States is based upon the color of one's skin.
However, the self-worth of an individual
should be emphasized instead of irrational-
ly concentrating on the race to which one
belongs. Many at Millsaps question the ar-
tificial barriers drawn by race and ask just
exactly why such barriers exist. In addition
to simply questioning these problems,
members of the Consultation have set im-
mediate and long-range goals to destroy
Unmistakenly, any solution which was
proposed at the Consultation must occur
through a change in attitude and not only in
reformed policy. Although policies of this
committee, the Admissions Department, or
the Administration itself may be written to
help minorities, they will face opposition
unless a change of heart occurs first. This
involves a partnership between the policy-
makers themselves and the Millsaps' popu-
lation: if we are to become a community,
one cannot override the other. Junior Edie
Hall emphasizes the importance of continu-
ing this open attitude: "Even though the
Consultation is over, we must stay aware of
this problem to make any changes for the
future. We can work to immediate goals to
plant the seeds of the long-range goals.
Let's not let this issue die."
Presently, the task groups of the Consul-
tation's Steering Committee work to
change existing problems on minority stu-
dents. The members of the Consultation,
along with others on campus, have an op-
portunity to make a difference for the fu-
ture. Just as the treatment of minorities was
questioned in the past, today students can
question their own attitudes to see if they
are willing to risk a change.

activities at Mill-
saps, many stu-
dents take for
granted the fact
that most professors on
campus are available to
them to answer questions or solve certain
situations in which the student may re-
quire assistance. The professors take
time from their massive amounts of pa-
perwork, grading and preparation for
upcoming classes in order to assist the
students. This type of direct assistance
cannot be found in any of the larger state
schools or even in those "elitist' schools.
In those types of places, one must work
with a teaching assistant, or worse, fend
for oneself. However, at Millsaps, teach-
er-student relations are much warmer,
friendlier and helpful. Most professors
are more than willing to provide any as-
sistance the student requires in order to
smooth the way for the pupil's quest for
The professors usually know all their
students' names, and in time, learn each
of their students' strengths and weak-
nesses and adjust to them accordingly.
This type of flexibility is rare at any
campus, yet it is here on our campus and
flourishing. Although Millsaps has been
receiving a large amount of national at-
tention, it has not turned into an aca-
demic leviathan in which the student be-
comes relegated to a mere number or
ignored for purposes of research in order
to gain further prestige. A visiting stu-
dent once remarked upon how well pro-
fessors knew their students by name and
how often the professors would stop and
actually converse with their pupils. It
was amazing to the visitor who happened
to attend a big-name school in the North
that the professors did not treat their
students in a condescending manner-
.What was more perplexing to the stu-
dent was that the professor actually no-
ticed the absence of a student and in-
quired into the reason of
his absence. In the visiting
student's school, the
teachers "did not seem to
Milsaps' good teacher-
student relations are not
due solely to a low teacher-student ratio
because there are many schools that of-
fer comparable ratios but still do not pro-
vide the necessary contact between the
teacher and the pupil. The good relations
are due mostly to the type of attitude
that the Millsaps Community produces.
This attitude is one of sharing, consider-
ation, and the pursuit of knowledge. Of
course, this attitude is fueled mostly by
the professors because they understand
that this is the best environment for
learning. Most students also understand
that this is the best way to learn and
reciprocate the professors' openess by
utilizing the various opportunities for di-
rect contact with their educators.
Carol Woods, a transfer student from
Baylor, feels that the faculty-student re-
lationship here at Millsaps as compared
to that of Baylor is one of more personal
relationships and added attention. ". . .
Because the classes are smaller here, the
interaction between faculty and student
is more one-on-one such that a better,
stronger relationship can be estab-
lished." Professor Bavender. a perfect
example of a teacher who will go out of
his way to help a student, expresses our
strong student-faculty relationship as a
"tradition here at Millsaps". Professor
Bavender goes on to say that one of our
basic traditions is a concept known as
"the total student." The teachers at
Millsaps really care about the student in
a total sense and this feeling is not just a
one-sided one; the student gets to know
the teacher in the same personal sense.
This type of teacher accessibility is im-
portant to us as students, because it is
vital to our studies and to our experience
here at Millsaps.
THE TOP TEN
It's Friday . . .
Last Class . . .
Slowly, the minute hand churns toward
the sound of the bell, and at last the indus-
trious Millsaps student is free! As he flees
from his classroom with suitcase in hand,
the average pedestrian should be cautioned
not to get in his way, for it may prove to be
fatal. The small number of weekend esca-
pees escalates into a large mass which de-
scends from the dorm stairwells to "jump
the iron gate."
Those who opt to brave a weekend of
desolation may have difficulty entertaining
themselves. Luckily, a small circle of Mill-
saps experts were glad to make suggestions
of what to do after the masses have packed
up and left.
Here are our suggestions:
1. Call home and rationalize your need for

5. Assemble your remaining neighbors and
mercilessly terrorize your R.A.
6. Calculate your social deviance task.
7. Re-organize your Domino's Pizza cou-
8. Acknowledge those clothes that have
been multiplying in a corner of your closet.

"Changing Values In America
The topic for this year's Student Sympo-
sium, "Changing Values in America," proved
to be a very intriguing and informative pro-
gram. Sponsored by the Studeny Body Associ-
ation, the two-day forum featured such well-
known speakers as Dr. Ronald Sider, Reverend
William Fore, and Reverend Donald Wildmon,
a native of Tupelo, Mississippi and a graduate
Each of the speakers added a new dimension
to the American value system as they projected
their own views and experiences into the forum.
The first speaker, Dr. Ronald Sider, is a profes-
sor of Theology at Eastern Baptist Theological
Seminary and is the author of fifteen books, the
most recent of which is What Does It Mean to
Be Pro-Life? His speech, entitled "Evangelical
Theology of Public Policy" raised many ques-
tions concerning social justice. Sider promoted
the idea that there is a need for a new vision in
today's society; an immediate solution to such a
problem is to implement knowledge of the Bi-
ble into today's society in public policy. Ac-
knowledging that it is impossible to separate
public life from ethical values, Sider empha-
sized the idea of shaping law with Scriptures.
The second speaker, Reverend William Fore,
the Chief Executive Officer of the Communi-
cation Commission of the Churches of Christ,
spoke on the "Replacement of Modern Day
Value System." The central issue to him was
how religion affects the mass media. Fore pre-
sented the view that television, as one of the
most powerful institutions in history, was com-
peting with religion for our very souls. Further-
more, the final speaker, Reverend Donald
Wildmon, Executive Director of the American
Family Association, entertained the topic of
"People Change, Values Don't." Wildmon
concentrated on two value systems, the secular
and the Christian. He portrayed Christianity
as the superior system because it has a point of
reference, Christ, while the secular system
lacks such a reference. According to Wildmon,
a value-free society is a valueless one and
Christianity represents the only reliable value
system. Clearly, the symposium speakers fea-
tured varying religious and political perspec-
tives on the American value system.
This year's Student Symposium was very
stimulating as it challenged our personal value
system and forced us to see how America is
changing its values. Now, we are more aware of
what an effect television has on us or just how
powerful public policy can be. It is up to each of
us to formulate our own opinions on these per-
ceptions and to decide how to apply this infor-
mation to our lives. As the audience walked
away feeling angry, perplexed, or concerned,
the true purpose of the symposium was fulfilled
in an educational experience that is inherent in
the liberal arts tradition.

FIRST ANNUAL FALL FEST
Fall Fest 1987, sponsored by the S.B.A.,
was organized this year to be to the fall
what Major Madness is to the spring. The
idea being to invite the entire campus:
greeks, independents, faculty, and whom-
ever, for a fun-filled weekend complete
with volleyball, tug o' war, bands, and, oh
yes, food right here at Millsaps. The Valley
Food Service did a super job of catering a
meal to the student body on that Saturday
afternoon on Fraternity Row. The display
was splendid: fruit, cheese, croissants, etc.
The guys played tug 'o war with the losers
landing in a gigantic mud pit. The girls
oohed and ahhed over the amount of mus-
cles (or lack of them) displayed. Volleyball
was also a tremendous success with only
nightfall and the coming of the band ending
the suspenseful games. Girls played this
game too, and it was rumored that Betsy
Flowers had a serve to beat anyones. The
Valley Food boys had quite a team as well;
however, they did not sport the attire that
William Wadsworth's team did. After Vol-
leyball the campus returned to its respec-
tive dorms to get cleaned up for the party
that night. Originally, the band was sched-
uled for the bowl, but the threat of rain
moved the party to none other than the Pi
Kappa Alpha house. This was sure to be a
swingin' time. So cologne was splashed on,
and whatever else to attract that special
person, and off everyone trucked to the Pi
Kappa Alpha house. Over all the party was
good. People danced, laughed, and occas-
sionally sang. But much to everyone's dis-
may, security showed up in full force to
chaperone the party. Vice-President of the
S.B.A. David Laird went running out to
save the day but was unsuccessful. Some-
one had leaked to campus security that
there might be several delinquent juveniles
drinking alcoholic beverages. Well, much
to everyone's surprise, there did turn out to
be a few illicit beverages being consumed
by students. Security saw to it that these
students' I.D.'s were impounded, and a
$15.00 fine slapped upon them. The party
ended. With puppy-dog faces, the Millsaps
students said goodnight to one another and
walked wearily home. Their hopes and
dreams were shattered because it was only
12:30 and they had not had a chance to
make their move.
Overall, the weekend was a success. Only
a few minor incidents led some to be disap-
pointed. Keep those parties rolling S.B.A. !

The second annual Major Madness was an-
other smash hit this year. Not only were the par-
ties well-attended and enjoyed, but they also
served as a well-deserved finale to the school
year. The activities which lasted from Wednes-
day, April 1 3th to Saturday, April 1 6th, provided
a comfortable way for Millsaps students to meet
prospective students. Undoubtably, Major Mad-
ness provided a much-needed outlet for students
about to enter final exams or Seniors who had
just completed comprehensive exams.
The list of activities ranged from the first an-
nual Talent Show on Wednesday to a party and
band in the Bowl on Saturday. Sponsored by the
SBA Spirit Committee, the Talent Show packed
the Recital Hall and showcased acts such as "A
Day in the Life of Stupid Affairs", by the Stu-
dent Affairs Office; the song "I Want a Girl" by
"The Four Saps"; and a medley arrangement by
Price Williams. Thursday's and Friday's activi-
ties included lunch, virgin margaritas, and music
in the Bowl. Also on Friday, the Millsaps Players
presented their final play of the year, "Ring
Round the Moon." A local band, Jett Screamer,
was featured at the Grove Apartments in a party
that night. Saturday's activities lasted from
morning until midnight. First, Panhellenic hosted
a tea in the Olin Building for prospective Millsaps
girls and campus Independents. This was fol-
lowed by a day-long volleyball tournament on
frat row which was accompanied by a jazz/blues
band and an outdoor shish-ka-bob dinner. Major
Madness' last party on Saturday presented the
band Ben Freed and IBM in the Bowl.
Supported by SBA, Panhellenic, and IFC,
Major Madness proved to be a great success
again this year. The variety of activities and par-
ties provided a great atmosphere for mixing the
visiting high school students with Millsaps stu-
dents. Clearly, this four-day-long party is quickly
becoming a popular tradition at Millsaps.

Millsaps Players Present "Our Town"
The sixty-fourth season of the Millsaps
Players began with the production of "Our
Town." This classic play, written by Thorn-
ton Wilder, enjoyed a popular four-day run
in the Christian Center. The thirty-four
member cast, directed by Lance Goss, wore
early twentieth century costumes as they
portrayed their characters.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, "Our
Town" depicts the life of a New Hampshire
village with its unique blend of humor,
beauty, and pathos. The play is set against
the background of centuries of time, social
history and religious ideas. The Stage Man-
ager gives an overview of the drama as he
says: "This is the way we were in our grow-
ing-up and in our marrying and in our doc-
toring and in our living and in our dying."
Set in 1901, the dramatic situation is in
Grover's Corners where the Gibbses and
the Webbs are neighbors. During their
childhood. George Gibbs and Emily Webb
become close playmates. As they grow
older, however, their relationship evolves
into a more romantic one. Over an ice-
cream soda, George proposes to Emily.
Their happiness is short-lived, unfortunate-
ly, because Emily dies suddenly thereafter.
In a very moving scene, the peace and quiet
of death is portrayed in a way that cannot
be fully understood by the living.

Now you know: that what it was to be alive. To move about in a cloud of
ignorance; to go up and down trampling on the feelings of those --of
those about you. To spend and waste time as though you had a million
years. To be always at the mercy of one self-centered passion, or another.
. . . Ignorance and blindness!

Tea and Sympathy: a Drama
"Years from now — when you talk about
this — and you will — be kind."
— Laura Reynolds
"Tea and Sympathy", the second perfor-
mance of the season, was another great suc-
cess for the Players. This love story written
by Robert Anderson was performed No-
vember 17th through the 21st. A special
addition to this play was the appealing set
designed by Wright McFarland as a Senior
Project in Theatre. This particular set,
which seated the audience on the stage with
the actors, made this intimate and enter-
taining production even more enthralling.
"Tea and Sympathy's" cast of ten acted
well in a play which covers issues and ques-
tions that are relevant today. Set in Eng-
land in 1953, the play deals with the search
for one's identity. "Tea and Sympathy",
which played on Broadway for two years, is
reviewed by critics as one which "can sim-
ply and briefly be described as a triumph."
The drama of the play takes place in an
English boy's school dormitory in 1956.
Tom Lee is a forlorn boy who is hazed by his
classmates because he has played girl's
parts in amateur theatricals. Their ridicule
intensifies to the point of persecution. De-
termined to prove his manliness, the youth
goes out for a night on the town with the
neighborhood tramp. To Tom's dismay,
this proves to be his downfall for he only
runs home from his date. At school, he is
now completely shunned as one who is truly
worthless. Only the headmaster's wife,
beautiful and understanding, offers Tom
sympathy in a delicate final scene.
"O brave new world that has
such people in't."
"The Tempest", the Player's third play,
was produced February 25th through the
28th. Directed by Lance Goss, this drama
used a cast of twenty-three to recreate this
well-known Shakespearean play. The Mill-
saps Players did a fine job in executing this
Considered by many scholars to be
Shakespeare's final play, "The Tempest" is
a work of fantasy and courtly romance. Its
characters include a wise old magician, his
attractive, naive daughter, a gallant young
prince and a scheming brother. This classic
play contains elements of a fairy tale in
which ancient wrongs are righted and true
lovers live happily ever after. Also present
are elements of a poetic atmosphere and
allegory. No other of Shakespeare's drama
reveals so much of the author's reflection of
The plot begins at sea with a storm and
ends on a note of serenity and joy. Prospero,
the banished Duke of Milan, and his daugh-
ter Miranda live on an island with a group
of spirits and nymphs. During a violent
tempest at sea, a ship wrecks on their is-
land. The occupants of the ship include the
King of Naples, his son Ferdinand and the
usurping Duke of Milan, Prospero's broth-
er. The romance and mystery of the drama
concerns the courtship of Miranda and Fer-
dinand and Prospero's efforts to regain his
his daughter, in

The 1 987-88 Millsaps Players season ended with the com-
edy, "Ring Round the Moon." The play was given April 1 3th
through the 17th. This light, humorous production was a
pleasant conclusion to a highly successful year for the Play-
Christopher Fry's adaptation of this Jean Anouilh play,
"Ring Round the Moon," has been an outstanding triumph
both in England and in New York. The London Times rates
it as "an enchanting little fairy tale of laughing . . . grace, its
sentiment masked by cool, brittle, eloquent mockery." This
comedy is a delight as it reflects on the moods of wistful
romance, satire and fantasy.
The plot develops around the author's ideas about love. A
fable about twin brothers is invented to illustrate the plot.
Frederic, shy and sensitive, and Hugo, heartless and aggres-
sive, are the main characters who direct the action. Frederic
is in love with a hussy who is in love with Hugo. To save
Frederic from an unhappy marriage, Hugo tries to distract
him by bringing to a ball a beautiful dancer. The dancer, who
becomes the triumph of the occasion, is a susceptible maiden
in her own right. She not only breaks up all the cynical
romances around her, but loses her own heart as well.

Millsaps' first talent show, held on April
13th, was a great success. Directed by the
SBA Spirit Committee's co-chairs Alicia
Clifton and Andy Harper, this extravan-
ganza of entertainment was certainly en-
joyed by all. The show lasted for hours and
packed the Recital Hall as administration,
faculty, staff and students participated in
The talent show's program showcased
acts that displayed the diversity and crazi-
ness of the Millsaps Student Body. For ex-
ample, the singers included Senior Misty
Skelton's piece "The Man I Love" and the
male quartet, The Four Saps, who sang "I
Want a Girl". Many other participants
sang pieces that ranged from medlies to
duets to solos. Not only did the audience
enjoy such singing, but it also delighted in
skits and other performances. Sam and Tic
executed "A Bluegrass Dissertation", for
instance. Freshman Price Williams, an ac-
complished pianist, played a medley that
she arranged. Faculty also joined in the fun
and led many acts. Dr. "J.R." Sallis, pro-
fessor of history, performed a comic routine
complete with a plaid suit, plastic nose and
wig. One of the most talked about and pop-
ular acts was by the Student Affairs Office.
Their skit, "A Day in the Life of Stupid
Affairs", was truly exemplary of the Mill-
saps Community in which faculty and stu-
dents work and relax together. The talent
show's motto: "To laugh at oneself is a gift
to all" was certainly experienced in those
few hours in the Recital Hall.
The talent show not only served as a
promising beginning to Major Madness but
also was a great way to bring the Millsaps
Community together. The "community"
spirit of the College is often talked about,
and sometimes its existence is even ques-
tioned, but here for one night, the adminis-
tration, faculty, staff and students joined
together for hours of fun to start a four-day
party. Hopefully, this type of activity will
be indicative of the community spirit which
can exist at Millsaps.

ber 3, 1914 at Washington and Lee Univer-
sity, Lexington, Virginia. The Pi Circle at
Millsaps College was founded in the spring
of 1926 as the sixteenth of what has grown
to over 200 ODK circles nationwide. Mem-
bers are selected based on leadership in five
major phases of student life, and the circle
includes not only students but also faculty,
alumni and administrators. Omicron Delta
Kappa continued its active role on campus
during the 1987-88 school year through the
sponsorship of various events such as Tap
Day, a reception in January for transfer
students, the Freshman Man and Woman
of the year award and a Faculty Recogni-
tion Luncheon. The highlight of the year
was the celebration of the seventy-fifth
ODK National Convention in Lexington,

The Gamma Zeta chapter of
Delta Delta Delta ended the 1987-
88 school year with fond memories
of parties, sisterhood and friend-
ships. In October the chapter held
their annual Fall Party. The theme
was "A French Quarter Fest." The
Pledge class also held a Christmas
Party for the children of the chap-
ter's alumnae. Tri Delta partici-
pated in fall intramurals, soccer,
volleyball, and basketball, receiv-
ing the first place trophy in basket-
ball. To end the fall semester the
chapter held Sleighbell Day to
benefit their national philanthro-
py, the Children's Cancer Fund.
To begin the Spring semester, the
second annual Moonlight Mas-
querade Formal was held. At this
time Barry Beck, Sam Field, and
Mike Morlan were named Delta
Gents. In March another party
was held for the alumnae's chil-
dren, an Easter Egg Hunt. The
chapter's major project for the
spring semester was the formation
of a Tri Delta SADD Chapter. The
chapter was started with a campus
wide presentation in March. The
project will have its major kick-off
next year with an outreach into the
Jackson Community through the
school systems. Finally there was a
brunch held in honor of the Senior

The 1987 school year was an-
other great year for Chi Delta. The
arrival of thirty-five wonderful
pledges in the fall was only a part
of the many changes seen in Chi
Omega. The chapter not only
changed faces with new officers
and pledges, but the lodge itself
acquired a new appearance with
many improvements and addi-
tions, including the scholarship
trophy both semesters!
Activities included record
breaking blood drives for the Mis-
sissippi Blood Services both semes-
ters, as well as collecting food dur-
ing Thanksgiving for a local wom-
en's shelter. Several Chi Omegas
volunteered their time at the
Methodist Rehabilitation Center
for children, and many helped
work for the Jerry Lewis telethon.
Chi Omega also maintained their
position as one of the top callers in
the student telephone campaign.
Parties for the year included the
annual Owlman in the fall, and the
addition of the new Owlmen:

Dec. 21, 1865
Alpha Mu Founding:
1987-88 was another excellent
year for the men at the Kappa Al-
pha Mansion as they excelled in
nearly every activity they partici-
pated in. The Model Initiation
team showed the best initiation
ever seen at the National Conven-
tion. Bid Day was another coup for
the Southern Gentlemen as 24 of
26 bids were accepted. With the
fine leadership of David Coffey,
the national undergraduate chair-
man; Mark Loughman, the presi-
dent; and Grant Fox, the pledge
trainer; KA was able to demon-
strate itself not only as a leader on
campus but also on the national
level, characterized by a travelling
evaluator/advisor as a chapter
that "reloads, not rebuilds."
Brotherhood rallies, Mr. Wells'
cookouts, and the Sweethearts'
functions for the entire year helped
maintain and strengthen the ca-
maraderie among us. The pledge
program, a through product of
Brother Fox's ingenuity, was a new
dimension to Alpha Mu that
helped to solidify an already supe-
rior group of freshmen. Intramur-
als have always been well partici-
pated in by Alpha Mu and 1988
was not exception as KA took the
Intramural championship trophy.
But while athletics are always fun
as well as important, scholarship
always has top priority at KA as
we took the scholarship trophy
with the highest G.P.A. in recent
history. But all work is no fun and
the KAs have as much or more fun
than anyone. No Theme parties.
Black and White, Initiation, Toga,
Valentine, and of course. Old
South — the best party of the year
- were among the many social
events that put the fun back into
college. With Brother Ponder,
Pritchard, and Wall to lead us into
1988-89, KA will once again be

Mu chapter of Kappa Delta
started 1987-1 988 off with a bang
before school had even begun. On
July 6 at the 47th National Kappa
Delta convention in New Orleans,
we received the Council Award. It
is given every two years to the top
KD chapter in the nation. We were
very excited and proud of this hon-
or. In October, a reception was
held here at Millsaps in honor of
our chapter. National President
Corre Anding Stegall and Nation-
al Secretary Dianne Leferney
McDowell were on hand to present
us with our award, an engraved sil-
ver punch bowl. Several alumnae,
students, and members of the ad-
ministration were also there.
On Bid Day, August 29, we wel-
comed thirty-five new, wonderful
pledges into our home. They all
came from different places and
backgrounds, but each had some-
thing special to offer. With lots of
hard work and enthusiasm, they
have been a tremendous asset to
our chapter and also to the cam-
pus. Like other members, they be-
came involved in Student Senate,
Millsaps Singers, various organi-
zations, and much more.
It has truly been an exciting and
eventful year for Mu chapter with
Big Sis/Lil Sis, "Jungle Love"
Fall Party, and White Rose Week,
which was concluded by initiation.
KD Shamrock Project, which
raises money to help prevent child
abuse, was a huge success. Other
fun activities were White Rose

Local Founding: Nov.
The past year, to say the least,
has been quite successful for
Kappa Sigma. Our brothers have
participated in numerous commu-
nity projects that have benefited a
great many people. From skating
parties with the children of the
Methodist Children's Home to a
Golf-a-thon to aid the Kidney
Foundation, we have attempted to
be of service to as many people as
possible. But not to be outdone in
the social realm, our parties of the
last year have been the envy of the
campus with our Founder's Day in
New Orleans and our three- day
South Seas celebration. Our mem-
bers also made a journey to the
University of Florida where they
placed second in the Regional
Kappa Sigma Softball Tourna-
ment. By winning the Millsaps
Telephone Campaign, we showed
our commitment to the campus. If
next year is as fun and productive
as the last, then our reputation will
be outstanding once again.

Theta Eta Founding:
Dec. 20, 1924
Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity,
the second largest fraternity in the
world and the largest at Millsaps,
provides the complete college ex-
perience for its members. Theta
Eta Chapter, with 109 men, has
grown over the years to become
one of the strongest Lambda Chi
Chapters in the nation. This past
year the chapter won three nation-
al fraternity awards: the Bruce
Hunter-Mclntosh Award for
Chapter Excellence, the Campus
Achievement Award and the To-
zier- Brown Public Affairs Project
Millsaps Lambda Chis are ac-
tive both on campus and in the
Jackson community. Lambda Chis
participate in varsity and intramu-
ral sports, student government,
honoraries, publications, teaching
assistantships and campus com-
mittees. This involvement is from
president of ODK to yearbook edi-
tor. Its strong involvement on cam-
pus places the men of Lambda Chi
in the center of campus life. Lamb-
da Chis involvement in the com-
munity ranges from hosting an
Easter egg hunt at a local orphan-
age to implementing a food drive
which raised over 24,000 pounds of
food for the needy in Mississippi.
Thus Lambda Chi Alpha's in-
volvement and impact stretches
beyond the Millsaps campus into
the Jackson community where
their presence is also well known
and highly respected.
Along with campus and commu-
nity involvement the chapter pro-
motes brotherhood, individuality,
and schoalrship. Lambda Chis at
Millsaps are known for their unity
amongst diversity — with mem-
bers from lands as distant as
France to as close as Louisiana.
Lambda Chi Alpha provides the
atmosphere for one to become a
socially well-rounded individual.
Theta Eta's quest for scholarship
places it with one of the highest
GPA's of all the Lambda Chi
chapters in the nation. Scholastic
achievement varies from the presi-
dent of the chemistry honorary to
participants in the Ford Fellow-
ship program. Lambda Chis are
constantly striving to attain their
But along with hard work comes
hard play, and that is another
thing that the Lambda Chis at
Millsaps are known for doing. Par-
ties such as "Mount Olympus,"
"Crescent Ball," "Winter Fest,"
"Throw Down II," and many oth-
ers kept the Lambda Chi house
rocking throughout the year.
There is also an annual canoe trip
and crawfish boil that allows one
to escape from the rigors of aca-
demic life. Sorority swaps at the
first of the year introduce the men
of Lambda Chi Alpha to the wom-
en of Millsaps sororities.
The complete college experience
is Lambda Chi Alpha. It's heritage
is built on human vision, under-
standing, idealism and honest

This year has been an eventful
one for Pi Kappa Alpha. The dedi-
cation of our new house was a
great way to begin the year. Alpha
Iota had an excellent rush with 35
great new pledges. Under the good
leadership of president Don Mos-
ley, we received a Chapter Excel-
lence award from National. Com-
munity service projects included:
Operation Shoestring to renovate
community buildings and helping
to organize the March of Dimes
Biathalon. During football season,
we came in second in the Home-
coming float contest.
The spring began with our chap-
ter hosting the Delta Regional
Convention for all Pike chapters in
the South. Other spring successes
were winning first place in our di-
vision for the school Telephone
Campaign and being awarded the
intramural soccer trophy. At Cot-
tonball, we elected six new Little
Sisters: Cory, Eileen, Amy, Janet,
Susan, and Michelle — and Joanie
was chosen our new Dreamgirl.
This year we also held some in-
credible parties. Some of these
were our annual pilgrimage to the
Delta Bluesfest, a great Old
North, the first annual Ed head
party, the Green Eggs & Ham
KA/PKA party, and we closed out
the year with Pike's Peak Week.

the fall we held our first rush here
at Millsaps College, picking up an
excellent pledge class of which we
are very proud.
We also threw four very suc-

party but also a well-deserved re-
treat for all involved.
The Colony's pledge class, un-

donations for the A.R.K. program
of the Mississippi Children's
Home Society Association. The

The 1987 Majors:
Driven by the will to win
The 1987 Millsaps Majors football team,
which included eighteen returning players
and thirty freshmen and transfers, was a
team of contrasts. It was a team where
young inexperienced players were counted
on at several key positions while veteran
players filled other positions with confi-
dence and leadership. The 1987 Majors
could be characterized as a team driven by
the . . . will to win.
The Millsaps Majors, in their season
opener, met the Tenn. Wesleyan Bulldogs
and shut them out for the second consecu-
tive year by a score of 31-0. The Majors
jumped out to a 1 2-0 first quarter lead on a
pair of touchdowns by quarterback Chad
Marks and wide receiver Darrin Estes;
Millsaps went on to rack up totals of 258
rushing yards on forty-nine carries and 1 38
passing yards on twelve completions. Lead-
ing the Millsaps receivers, Estes had seven
catches for ninety-one yards rushing and
one touchdown. Estes, who led the nation
among Division III punters last season,
punted four times for 209 yards and a fifty-
two yard average. Defensively, the Majors
allowed only eight completions on twenty-
two attempts, caused three fumbles, sacked
the quarterback once and intercepted one
In the second game of their season the
Majors defeated Divison II NAIA power-
house Union College 3 1 -9. In a game which
on paper seemed to be a mismatch, with
Union College seemingly superior, the Ma-
jors showed a will to win which drove them
to victory. Union College, a team with over
one hundred players on its roster and
ranked eighteenth in the nation NAIA Di-
vision II, was able to score first but immedi-
ately fell behind the Majors and never re-
gained the lead. The Majors defense, which
was a key part of the victory, allowed the
Bulldogs only twenty-six yards rushing in
the first half and forced a loss of yardage in
the second half. Millsaps intercepted a pass
and sacked the quarterback twice. Offen-
sively, the Majors, who had 391 total offen-
sive yards were led in rushing by Jerry
Leonard, Todd Thriffley, and Andy Man-
sukhani, who had 113, seventy-four, and
fifty-one yards rushing respectively.
Leonard, along with Buddy Bass, ran for
two touchdowns and one touchdown respec-
tively. Quarterback Rusty Davis led the
team in passing, completing five of twleve
passes for fifty-seven yards and no intercep-
The Majors, in their first loss of 1 987, fell
to the University of the South Tigers in a
close game by a final score of 17 to 13. The
winning touchdown, socred by the Tigers,
was scored in the closing seconds, leaving
no time for the Majors to drive down the
field for another score. Millsaps struck first
in the game on an early two yard touch-
down run by Buddy Bass. The Tigers re-
plied almost immediately with seven points
of their own. The Majors came back to take
the lead on a sixty yard touchdown pass
from Rusty Davis to Steve Levee. Defen-
sively, the Majors played tough causing
three fumbles and sacking the Tigers' quar-
terback twice. They held the Tigers to only
ninety-five yards in total rushing, including
fifty-seven yards lost in rushing.
The Majors, in the first of two consecu-
tive road trips, defeated the Trinity Univer-
sity Tigers 33 to 10. The game, which re-
mained scoreless through most of the first
half, shaped up early to be a battle of the
defenses. In the second quarter, the Tigers
scored their only touchdown. As if on a sig-
nal, the Millsaps offense opened up to score

fourteen points before the half. These
scores came on touchdowns of thirteen and
three yards each, by Buddy Bass and Jerry
Leonard respectively. The score at the half
was 14 to 10 after Trinity kicked a thirty-
seven yard field goal with seconds left in the
half. Where the first half had been a see-
saw battle of the defenses, the second half
was all Millsaps. The Majors last three
scores came on a thirty yard pass from
Rusty Davis to Darrin Estes, a nine yard
run by Davis, and another pass from Davis
to receiver Mike Brown. Todd Triffley and
Jerry Leonard led the Majors in rushing
with fifty-two yards on fourteen carries,
and forty yards on twelve carries respec-
tively. The Majors' receivers were led by
Darrin Estes and Chris Hemphill, who had
one catch for thirty yards and one catch for
twenty-eight yards respectively. Defensive-
ly, the Majors were led by Scott Green who
had fourteen tackles, including seven unas-
sisted. Aubrey Falls also contributed with
one fumble recovery and one interception.
Another contributor to the Majors' defen-
sive efforts was punter Darrin Estes, who
had the second longest punt of his career,
seventy-two yards. Finally, Clay Ranager
blocked a crucial field goal try by Trinity,
which set up a Millsaps touchdown.
The Majors, facing their perrenial rivals,
the Rhodes College Lynxcats, lost by a final
score of 22 to 15. The game, which started
out with a seven point Millsaps lead early
on, was played very much in the air. Quar-
terbacks Rusty Davis and Jody Caraccioli
led the offense in total offensive yards. Da-
vis had twenty-five attempts, twelve com-
pletions, and one interception for seventy-
four yards; while Caraccioli threw three
times and compelted two for sixty-four
yards. The Majors' only two touchdowns
were scored by Jerry Leonard and Rusty
Davis with runs of one yard and thirty-nine
yards respectively. One highlight of the
game was the six punts by Darrin Estes for
224 yards. Estes was ranked second in the
nation among NCAA Division III punters
Against Central Methodist, the Majors
dominated in just about every facet of the
game. The Majors had 172 yards rushing,
216 yards passing, and forty-three yards in
returns. On defense, the Majors had three
quarterback sacks and four fumble recover-
ies. The final score was 24 to 7 in Millsaps
favor. In the game, the Majors were led in
rushing by Jerry Leonard, who had twelve
carries for eighty-three yards and one
touchdown. Buddy Bass had forty-eight
yards on sixteen carries and two touch-
downs. In passing, Rusty Davis led the
team with thirty attempts and twenty com-
pletions for 208 total yards. Catching
passes for the Majors were Mike Hester,
Mike Brown, Darrin Estes, Jerry Leonard,
Buddy Bass and Chris Hemphill. Hester
and Brown had four catches for a total of
fifty-nine yards and five catches for a total
of forty-seven yards respectively. Defen-
sively, the Majors were led by Clay Ran-
ager and Burt Amison. Ranager had six
tackles, six assists, and one fumble recov-
ery. Amison had five tackles, two assists,
two quarterback sacks, and three fumble
recoveries. Also contributing was Chuck
Clayton, who had three tackles, one assist,
and one sack.
Millsaps, in their seventh game of the
season, was matched up against the Lam-
buth College Eagles. From the beginning of
the game, it was apparent that the Eagles
faced an uphill battle and were extremely
outclassed by a very inspired Millsaps
team. The Majors, who scored in all four
quarters, including twenty-eight points in
the second quarter, ran and passed excep-
tionally well. Millsaps first scored on a six-
ty-six yard pass from quarterback Rusty
Davis to receiver Darrin Estes for a touch-
down late in the first quarter. Early in the
second quarter Davis again passed for a
touchdown, this time on a nine yard toss to
Steve Levee. Minutes later, Chuck Clayton
blocked a Lambuth kick and scored the
third touchdown for the Majors with a little
more than four minutes left in the quarter
and then again with less than a minute left
in the quarter. These two touchdowns came
on a five yard pass to Todd main Thriffley
and a three yard run by Darrin Estes. This
put the score at thirty-five to nothing in
favor of the Majors as the half ended. The
Majors scored twice more in the game, once
in the third quarter, and once in the fourth
quarter. The first touchdown was on a Da-
vis to Estes passing combination and the
second on a one-yard run by senior Scott
Christian. This left the final score at 49 to 7
in Millsaps' favor. Millsaps was led in rush-
ing by Todd Thriffley and Scott Christian,
who had eleven carries for sixty yards and
eight carries for thirty-seven yards respec-
tively. As a team, the Majors rushed forty-
one times for 115 yards and two touch-
downs. In the air, quarterbacks Rusty Da-
vis and Jody Caraccioli passed twenty times
and completed thirteen for 182 yards total
and four touchdowns. Davis had his best
game of the year with fifteen attempts and
nine completions for 128 yards and three
touchdowns. The Millsaps receivers were
led by Darrin Estes who had seven catches
for 129 yards and two touchdowns. Steve
Levee had two catches for twenty-eight
yards and one touchdown. On defense, the
Majors sparkled behind the solid leadership

four yards rushing and forty-four yards
The Majors, in their final home game of
the season, defeated Washington Universi-
ty 28 to 16. The Majors, who scored once in
each quarter, clenched their tenth consecu-
tive winning season. Senior Darrin Estes,
who led the team in rushing with fourteen
carries for forty-two yards and two touch-
downs, also caught three passes for thirty
yards and one touchdown. Estes led the
team in scoring with eighteen points. The
only other score came on a nine yard pass to
Jerry Leonard. Leonard caught five passes
for a total of sixty-six yards and one touch-
down. The Majors' offensive attack, which
came mainly from the air, was led by Rusty
Davis. Davis passed thirty-one times, com-
pleting eighteen for two touchdowns. Mike
Brown led the Majors in receiving with
three catches for eighty-four yards and
Mike Hester pulled down three passes for
forty-seven yards. Also contributing a sea-
son high ninety-four yards on four kickoff
returns was Todd Thriffley. Defensively,
Millsaps, ranked tenth in the nation the
previous week, recovered two fumbles and
intercepted one pass. Tommy Ponder and
Chuck Clayton recovered the fumbles and
Aubrey Falls intercepted the pass, return-
ing it for twenty-one yards.
Millsaps then traveled to Tennessee to
play the Lane College Dragons. The Ma-
jors were victorious by a final score of 24 to
23. Offensively, the Majors were led in
rushing by Todd Thriffley and Andy Man-
sukhani. Thriffley had six rushes for 104
yards and one touchdown. Mansukhani had
fourteen rushes for seventy-five yards. In
passing, Rusty Davis attempted twenty-
four passes and completed eleven for 144
yards and three touchdowns. He threw four
passes to Darrin Estes who had seventy
yards total. Receivers Mike Brown, Jerry
Leonard, ann Todd Thriffley also contrib-
uted with one touchdown apiece. Defen-
sively, the Majors had four sacks, recovered
two fumbles, and blocked one extra point.
Scott Green had two of the sacks and the
blocked kick, Clay Ranager had one of the
fumble recoveries, and Jason Walenta had
the other two sacks and the fumble recov-

The Thrill of Victory
The Agony of Defeats
The Millsaps' mens' soccer team, under
the coaching of George Gober, returned ten
of eleven starters from last years 1 1 of 8
team. Some of the key returning players
were top scorers Mike Morlan and Tony
Moore. Another important returning per-
son was Kevin Brune, who led the 1986
team in scoring. He returned this year as
assistant coach. Key additions to the team
were freshman standouts Micky Brown
from Jackson and Todd Brown from Mem-
phis. The 1987 Majors faced the toughest
schedule in their history, including two top
twenty teams at the beginning of the sea-
son. The Majors started off the season with
a win over Hines College, then fell to na-
tionally ranked Centenary in an impressive
team effort. From that point on, a season of
promise had turned sour for the Majors as
they often played equal or better than the
opposition, but could never quite finish with
a win. The highlight of the season was a
victory over regionally ranked Emory Uni-
versity in an awesome battle that was decid-
ed by the third goal in the final ten seconds
of the game, scored by Tony Moore.
Though the Majors were disappointed with
the season, many returnees will provide
hope for a better team next year.

Women's Soccer Comes Into Its Own
The 1987 Lady Majors soccer team re-
turned eight of the season's eleven starters.
The top five scorers from the 1986 13-3-2
team were among those who returned. The
Lady Majors went through a drastic
change this year when they went from from
a spring to a fall schedule. Eventhough this
only gave them a three month rest from
season to season, they still remained com-
petitive. This year the Lady Majors com-
piled a record of seven wins, eight losses,
and one tie. They faced the toughest sched-
ule of their history this season. All of their
opposition this year were varsity or school-
supported club teams. The captains for this

A Year of Highs and Lows
The 1987-88 Millsaps Majors Men's
Basketball team was a young team with no
seniors, four juniors, two sophomores, and
seven freshmen. The team was led by its
juniors, Jimmy Carr, Tim Wise, Ted Hunt,
and Tyrone McDonald. Carr Led the team
in total points with 517, total three point
goals with 83, and three-point shot percent-
age with 49.1%. Wise also lead the team in
steals with 46 (almost two per game). Hunt
was thirty-four of forty from the free-throw
line, placing him second on the team in
free-throw percentage. Hunt was also sec-
ond on the team in three-point goals with
twenty-three, behind only Jimmy Carr.
The rebound leader on the team was Ty-
rone McDonald, who had 1 59 on the season
and averaged 6.11 per game.
Other highlights of the season included
playing in front of over five thousand in a
tough loss to Division I University of Ala-
bama-Birmingham and tournament victo-
ries in Trinity University. Individually,
Carr had an outstanding season, in which
he was placed on three all-tournament
teams including the Rhodes College, Mill-
saps, and Trinity Tournaments. In the
Trinity Tournament, Carr broke the tour-
nament record for most points scored in a
game, and he accomplished this in the first-
half of the game. He also joined the ranks of
Millsaps players who have over one-thou-
sand point in their collegiate careers. Na-
tionally, he was ranked in the top ten
among Division III players in three-point
shots per game.

opponents by an average of 9.3 points per
game and out-rebounded them by an aver-

gional Finals. Individual-
ly, in the South Region,
they placed three mem-
bers in the final rankings.
Junior Todd Helbling, at
9-14, placed third in sin-
gles in the Regional Fin-
als. Helbling, 40th in the
nation in singles at the
end of the regular season,
was in contention for a
place in the National Fin-
als until the last selec-
tions. In doubles, the
team of Jay Ciaccio and

also under the direction of
Coach Montgomery, had
an excellent season. This
included sending two
team members, junior
Yvette Edwards and
sophomore Paige Carpen-

Women's National Ten-
nis Tournament. Carpen-
ter was also named to the
Division III All-Ameri-
can team. Ending her sea-
son with a record of 22-7
in singles play, Carpenter
was ranked first in singles
in the Southern Region
and fifth in doubles. To-
gether with her doubles
partner, Yvette Edwards,
they amassed a season re-
cord of 18-6. Edwards
herself, with a record of
18 wins and only 6 losses,

Skill and Speed
The Millsaps Majors baseball team end-
ed the 1988 season with a record of 14 wins
and 13 losses. The Majors captured their
winning season by sweeping the final 2
games of the year from Rust College. One
of the highlights of the '88 season was when
the Majors defeated both Aurora College
and Elmhurst College. Both of these Illinois
teams qualified for the 1987 playoffs and
advanced past the regionals. The Majors
also defeated Rust College and N AIA pow-
erhouse, Springhill College.
The Majors were extremely talented
both in the field and at the plate. Offensive-
ly, the Majors were led by Senior Bill Dev-
lin who had a team high batting average of
.368 and Tony Melvin who hit safely in 12
consecutive games. The Majors showed
their offensive proess with victories of 24-3,
1 1-0, and 10-0. Left: Millsaps power-hitter

The Majors' defense and the pitching staff combined for 5
shutouts. The pitching staff also had a 2.97 ERA. Senior
Frank Martin led the staff with a 5-1 record while Junior
Danny Hughes pitched 17 % innings without having a run
scored against. Him. Sophomore Gregg Raffo set a school
record by striking out 15 batters in a single game.
The Majors were especially tough at home winning over
60% of the games and eight of their first eleven games. The

went on to compete in invitational tourna-

versity of the South at Sewanee, and Wash-
ington University. While still a young team,
the members are looking forward to several
years of continued progress as the team
grows and matures. Golf Team Head
Coach, Mary Ann Edge felt that "for a

The Millsaps Cross Country program,
vhich previously had consisted of only a
Vomen's squad, gained a Men's team this
ear. Both the teams were very young how-
ver and were going through the building
rocess this year. Both of the teams com-
eted in four races including: The Universi-
y of Southern Mississippi Invitational, The
Mississippi Intercollegiate Tournament,
'he Governor's Cup, and The Mississippi
The top two women's runners for Mill-
saps were Carah Lynn Billups and Lisa
Loughman. Both finished consistently well
including ninth and sixth places finishes
overall in the Governor's Cup respectively.
Loughman especially was consistent, fin-
ishing in the top twenty in all four races.
Billups was awarded the 1988 Spirit Award
for the Women's Team and Loughman was
named Most Outstanding Runner for the
second year in a row.
Of all the runners on the Men's Team,
Tracy Griffin, who also served as student
, Cross Country
coach, was the most consistent runner.
Griffin was named Most Outstanding Run-
ner for 1988 for the Men's Team. Steve
Anderson was the recipient of the 1988
Spirit Award for the Men's Squad. Accord-
ing to Coach Mary Ann Edge, "Consider-
ing the competition which both teams ran
against, mostly Division I and II schools, we
performed very well. We have a lot of talent
on both of the teams and should continue to
improve over the next few seasons."

Independents . . . Are We Having Fun Yet?
For those who find the greek system "not
for them", independence at Millsaps is a
viable alternative. Although often viewed
as a group which arises due to non-accep-
tance, these students are still making their
mark on the Millsaps Community.
Through positions of leadership on various
committees, the SBA Senate, and extra
curricular activities, independents are striv-
ing to improve the Millsaps' Experience for

First Semi-Sporadic Grail Getaway Week-
Whether it is in student government,
intramurals, or the Semi-Sporadic Holy

impact. Who can forget the "Thursday Piz-

of the "James Earl", the play by play com-
mentaries by "Liz", or the Baton Rouge

ber the road trips to Mardi Gras, Lynyrd

What of the thrill at starting a new softball
dynasty in intramurals? Recall the honor
felt at being invited to attend SBA Senate
meetings regularly, and aiding in the draft-
ing of and the gaining of a permanent seat
on the All-College Council. Yes, the non-
greek Millsapians are definitely taking an
active role in their educational experience.

that outside of her work, her life
is boring that, in fact, Sociology
is her life. When asked what she

Dr. Baba also adds that she just

Thirty- Year Faculty
Coach Mary Ann Edge be-
gan teaching at Millsaps in
1958. She received both her
B.S. and M.S. from the Univer-
sity of Mississippi and her doc-
torate from the University of
Southern Mississippi. Coach
Edge teaches a variety of
courses in health and physical
education and has, during her
time here, coached the Men's
Golf team, the Women's Bas-
ketball team and the Cross
Country team. She has tried to
keep involved outside the school
serving with many community
organizations and with the Spe-
cial Olympics. She really enjoys
each new year with the chal-
lenge it brings in every new crop
of students. She hopes that in
some way she is able to help
shape and develop each student
that passes through her class or
is on one of her teams. Coach
Edge has seen this campus and
student body really grow over
the past thirty years. She likes
the "new look" of Millsaps, and
looks forward to many more re-
warding years of teaching here.
Before joining the Millsaps
faculty in 1950 Mr. Lance Goss
received his A.B. from Millsaps
and his A.M. from Northwest-
ern University. Since then he
has held the position of Director
of the Millsaps Players. His
credits, as Director of the Play-
ers, are long and distinguished;
he even receives praise from
drama critics throughout the
state. The Players were the first
group in the state to perform
plays such as Death of a Sales-
man and A Streetcar Named
Desire and also to produce var-
ious Broadway musicals on a
regular basis. The Players' pro-
duction of Hamlet in 1954 was
the first in Mississippi to use the
music of Lehman Engel in a
production. This version of
Hamlet was also called the fin-
est presentation that Millsaps
has given to the public in any
form to that date. Two of the
"more famous" individuals to
come through the Players in-
clude Michael Beck and Allen
John Guest has taught Ger-
man to Millsaps students for
the past 31 years. He received
his A.B. from the University of
Texas and M.A. from Colum-
bia Univ., and he has done ad-
vanced study at New York Uni-
versity and Bonn University.
One of the most decisive events
in his life was the year that he
spent in Vienna on a Fulbright
Scholarship. It was during this
time that he learned about Ger-
man culture and the "meaning
Wendell Johnson, now a Pro-
fessor Emeritus, joined the
Millsaps faculty in 1954 as a
part-time professor of Geology
and has since become Chair-
man of the Geology Depart-
ment. He attended Kansas
State University where he re-
ceived both his B.S. and B.A. in
Geology. A few of the Profes-
sional Societies to which he be-
longs include: Sigma Xi, Mis-
sissippi Academy of Sciences,
Mississippi Geological Society
and the Mississippi Gem and
Mineral Society. He has helped
to write a least eleven publica-
tions and has given numerous
talks to various organizations.
Johnson has traveled to such
places as Norway, Sweden,
Denmark, Hawaii and several
parts of North America and the
Alps. Professor Johnson says
that the greatest satisfaction in
his career is the number of out-
standing Geology majors he has
taught and their mark in busi-
ness, industry, teaching and
many state and federal agen-
Dr. Smauel Knox, now a
Professor Emeritus, has been at
Millsaps as a mathematics pro-
fessor for 37 years. He received
his B.A. and M.A. from the
University of Mississippi, and
his Ph.D. from Virginia Poly-
technic Institute. Knox has also
studied at Oberlin College and
at the University of Michigan.
In addition, he has been Chair-
man of the Mathematics de-
partment since 1962. The pro-
fessional socieites he is a mem-
ber of include Theta Nu Sigma,
Pi Kappa Pi, ODK; he has also
been chosen as Distinguished
Professor of the year. Knox has
contributed articles to the
Monthly and other magazines.
Dr. Knox served with the Unit-
ed States Marine Corps, as a
radar technician in Guam, from
February 1943 to June 1946. In
his leisure time he enjoys wood-
working, fishing, gardening and
Dr. Russell Levanway,
Chair of the Psychology De-
partment, earned his A.B. from
the Univ. of Miami and his
M.S. and Ph.D. from Syracuse
University. He began teaching
partly because it involved the
counseling of emotionally upset
students, but as he became
more involved, he found that he
was hooked to teaching itself,
and not just to counseling. Soon
afterward, he took the job at
Millsaps in 1956 and began his
tenure here. Dr. Levanway,
during his time here, has made
many observations about stu-
dents' behavior and ability. He
says that the students are in the
best position to influence the
quality of their education, and
take control of a boring class
and make it exciting. In his
opinion, the students control the
level of excitement that per-
vades in a classroom. One of the
most interesting things, accord-
ing to Dr. Levanway, is to see an
average student transform into
a "burning fire of scholarship."
Jonathan Sweat earned his
B.S. and M.S. from the Julliard
School of Music. He joined
Millsaps in 1958 and in 1963
was awarded the Danforth
Grant to pursue his study of
music at the University of
Michigan. He received his
A.Mus.D. from the University
of Michigan. In Michigan,
Sweat gave many piano solos
and chamber music recitals.
While here at Millsaps, Mr.
Sweat has taught classes in mu-
sic theory and, of course, piano.
He also enjoys giving the music
lectures of the Heritage pro-
gram. One of the highlights of
his career came in 1985 when
he was able to perform with the
Millsaps Singers and the Jack-
son Syumphony Orchestra in a
performance of Beethoven's
Fantasy for Piano, Choir and
Orchestra. Once again, in the
Spring of 1 987, he returned on a
sabbatical leave to the Julliard
School of Music. He attended
classes, lectures, recitals, con-
certs, operas and art museums
during his stay in New York.
This return is what he calls "an
exciting time of renewal."

The production of this year's Bobashela would
not have been possible had it not been for the
many people who gave of their time and talents to
create this publication. First, the Public Rela-
tions Department has been an invaluable re-
source providing advice and photographs to staff
members. Contracted by the P. R. Department,
the Communication Arts Company has freely
provided for several color photos used in the in-
troduction of the yearbook. Special thanks go out
to the members of the Office of Student Affairs
who aided us greatly in the day-to-day workings
of the yearbook. Finally, I would like to thank all
the members of the staff who put forth many
hours of work even after school ended, especially
Susan Lee and Bill Morris who were able to give
the Bobashela such fine quality photographic
prints throughout the year.
