"Self-reliance with a sense of community 

y t 

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 
Week, but the underlying problem was that 
in which Continued on page 8 

"Finding ethical 
solutions . . . 

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 
bring the students, faculty, and administra- 
tion together. 

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 
Methodist Church. 

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 
to liberalism. 

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 inspiration which

'The aim of the undergraduate experience 


comes from education will always be what 
is remembered of Millsaps and symbolized 
by the Millsaps Tower" during a ceremony 
for the dedication of the Bell Tower on Oc- 
tober 15, 1987. 

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,

Olin Dedication 

ivi I iBfii m I &~« Ci 


Campus Life 

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

Search of 
the Truth 

iy Kimberly Waggoner 

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 
these barriers. 

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.

I the day-to-day 
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. 



It's Friday . . . 
It's Your 
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 
more money. 

2. Attempt to enter the movie theatre for a 
cut rate by showing the employee your 
Millsaps I.D. 

3. Answer the lobby phones which usually 
go unanswered. 

4. Experience a panoramic view of Millsaps 
from the belltower. 

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. 

9. Take a road trip to the state border. 

10. Experience what being a "dorm rat" is 

Some other suggestions made were: 

— Spend an entire role of quarters on pool 
games at C.S.'s. 

- Plot a secret mission. 

— Sit in the Millsaps- Wilson Library wish- 
ing that you had escaped for the weekend.

"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 
of Millsaps. 

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.

Homecoming 1987 took place on the weekend of October 10 
when Millsaps played Central Methodist University. On Wednes- 
day, October 8, it was 50's say and everyone dressed up to show 
their spirit. Thursday was 60's day and the Homecoming Queen 
was elected. Friday, there was a Pep-Rally in the bowl starring 
"Major P.I. sponsored by the cheerleaders. Later that evening a 
bonfire was held at the golf course. Saturday, Millsaps played 
Central Methodist and beat them 28-6. A dance was held in the 
bowl following the game. Homecoming court include Tracy Apple-

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. 


"The Tempest" 

"O brave new world that has 
such people in't." 

— Prospero 

"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 
romantic fantasy. 

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 
life itself. 

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 
noble title.

loses her heart to 


Ring Round 
the Moon" 

a Comedy 

"I fall in love as a matter of routine. But not 
ludicrously like my brother." 

— Hugo 

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.

Talent Show 

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 
this fun-for-all. 

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.

only is participation in the political 
system sought by our organization, 
but the correct understanding of 
how our system works, what makes 
it succeed and how it sometimes 
fails (here finding use for those 
"left-field" policies) is also seen as 
vital in following our forefathers 
dreams to establish a politically 
knowledgeable public.

Omicron Gamma 

Founding: Oct. 23. 


Upholding the aims and tradi- 
tions of this great fraternity can 
often prove to be a hard and de- 
manding task, especially when 
there is a limited number of mem- 
bers. Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity 
has often boasted about its major 
accomplishments with the Boys 
Scouts of America as well as the 
Teen Father's Program. On the lo- 
cal level, the Omicron Gamma 
Chapter felt both a human and 
compassionate desire to help raise 

money for Debra Smith, a fellow 
student at Jackson State Universi- 
ty who was in desperate need of a 
delicate liver transplant. Members 
of the chapter found great pleasure 
in helping someone else who was in 
dire need. 

This year, the chapter spon- 
sored its first participant in the Al- 
pha Phi Alpha State Miss Black 
and Gold Contest. Melissa 
McLean represented the chapter 
well. Even though she did not come 

out on top. the chapter still consid- 
ers her a w inner and found the ex- 
perience worthwhile. Following 
the competition, the chapter 
jumped right into its only pledge 
class of the year. While it was a 
lengthy and tiresome process, the 
fraternity was pleased to welcome 
Casey Ferrell into the realm of the 
first nationally founded Black Fra-

Gamma Zeta Found- 
ing: October 4, 1986 

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 
member of the sorority. The Gam- 
ma Zeta chapter ended the school 
year with anticipation of Tri Del- 
ta's 100th anniversary in Novem- 
ber of 1988.

Motto: Hellenic cul- 
ture and Christian 

National Founding: 
April 5. 1895 
Chi Delta Founding: 
March 31, 1934 

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: 
Bubba C. Tim Gates, Barry G„ 
Greg S., Tommy S., and Judd T. 
Second semester brought the sec- 
ond annual Eleusinian Ball and the 
first crawfish party at the reservoir 
at the end of the semester for a 
final farewell before summer.

National Founding: 

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 
among the top on campus and in 
the nation.

Mu Chapter Found- 
ing: Sept. 25, 1914 

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 
Formal, an Easter Egg Hunt for 
children of alumnae, and our Pro- 
ject Excellence retreat "Hawaiian

Colors: scarlet, white,

Symbol: caducuceas 
National Founding: 
Dec. 10, 1869 
Local Founding: Nov. 
9, 1895 

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.

Lambda Chi Alpha 

Colors: Purple, Green 
and Gold 

Motto: Not without la- 

National Founding: 
Nov. 2, 1909 
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 
Involvement -Outstanding 
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 
highest potential. 

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

Alpha Iota 

Founding: March 23, 


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.

Colony Founding: Au- 
gust 30. 1986 

This academic year proved to be 
a successful one for our Colon) . 1 n 
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- 
cessful and entertaining theme 
swaps with the sororities. Our sec- 
ond annual hayride in Ackerman, 
Ms. proved to be not only a great 
party but also a well-deserved re- 

treat for all involved. 

The Colony's pledge class, un- 
der the direction and guidance of 
Sam Field, solicited monies and 
donations for the A.R.K. program 
of the Mississippi Children's 
Home Society Association. The 
A.R.K. is an alcohol/drug reha- 
bilitation program for youths. 

This year our Colony held its 
first Paddy Murphy, an annual 
party of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon 

Fraternity nationwide. This gave 
us the chance to use our prized ac- 
quisition, a black 1966 Cadillac 

All in all. the 1987-1988 year 
proved to be an exciting and pro- 
gressive one for us as we work to- 
ward our installation as a chapter

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 
that week. 

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

of senior Clay Ranager, who had two inter- 
ceptions for fifty-two yards and led the 
team in tackles. The Majors also blocked 
one kick, recovered one fumble, and had 
several sacks. They allowed the Eagles only 
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 
year's team senior Mindy Bowman and 
sophomore Meme Soho. The Lady Majors 
were under the guidance of Coach George 
Gober who coached both Men's and Wom- 
en's soccer teams simultaneously during 
the fall.

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.

Men's Tennis 

The 1987-88 Millsaps 
Men's Tennis Team per- 
formed well as usual un- 
der the watchful eye of 
Coach Jim Montgomery. 
The team, as a whole, 
placed third in the NCAA 
Div. Ill Men's South Re- 
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 
Ed Yelverton with a re- 
cord of 5-9 placed fifth in 
the Div. Ill South Region.

The 1987-88 Millsaps

also under the direction of 
Coach Montgomery, had 
an excellent season. This 
included sending two 
team members, junior 
Yvette Edwards and 
sophomore Paige Carpen- 
ter to the Division III 
Women's National Ten- 
nis Tournament. Carpen- 
ter was also named to the 
Division III All-Ameri-

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 
Majors should continue in their winning ways under Head 
Coach Tommy Ranager, Assistant Coach Jim Page, and 
Graduate Assistant Steve Hancock.

This year, the Millsaps Golf Team com-

titions. They started their year with the 
Delta State Invitational Tournament and 
went on to compete in invitational tourna- 
ments at Jackson State University, the Uni- 
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 
building year, the Majors did exceptionally 
well and showed great promise.'* Coach 
Edge is also the Head Coach of the Mill- 
saps Men's and Women's Cross Country 
Teams, which also had a promising year in

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 
College Invitational. 

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."

Under the able leadership of co-captains Chris Powell, 
with three years experience, and Tracy Applewhite, in her 
second year cheering for the Majors, the cheerleaders attend- 
ed the largest cheerleading camp in the nation at Memphis 
State. In their first camp attendance in three years, they won 
four Superior ribbons and one Excellent and brought home 
one spirit stick. The 1987-88 squad of Millsaps Majors cheer- 
leaders was one of the finest Millsaps squads in recent years, 
due partly to the tumbling skills of Eric Bufkin and Greg 

The Majors had a re-election for basketball cheerleaders 
for the first time in several years and continued to lead and 
inspire the spirit of the Majors throughout the year. 

Another first achieved this year for the squad was the one

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

Whether it is in student government, 
intramurals, or the Semi-Sporadic Holy

impact. Who can forget the "Thursday Piz- 
za let's forget Steak" night, the escapades 
of the "James Earl", the play by play com- 
mentaries by "Liz", or the Baton Rouge 
Gator Getaway Weekend? Do you remem- 
ber the road trips to Mardi Gras, Lynyrd 

Skynyrd, Pensacola. and the Ponderosa? 
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.

New Teachers 
Add Diversity 
to Millsaps 

A new assistant professor of 
education, Louis B. Gallien, re- 
ceived his B.S. from Baylor 
University and both his M.A. 
and Ph.D. from the University 
of North Carolina. He enjoys 
being part of a small liberal arts 
college in the south and finds 
that his extracurricular inter- 
ests in various sports have coin- 
cided well with the interests of 
his students. Consequently he 
has been able to get to know 
some students outside his aca- 
demic discipline which he finds 
very rewarding. 

One of two new English 
teachers. Miss Lida Burris, has 
a B.A. from Millsaps and an 
M.A. from Tulane University. 
Miss Burris plans to continue 
her graduate work in the fall of 
1988 and claims this year of 
teaching at Millsaps has been 
an invaluable professional ex- 
perience for her. She has 
learned a great deal from her 
students and particularly from 
her colleagues some of whom 
she finds very good role models. 
After receiving her Ph.D. she 
hopes to continue teaching col- 

Mrs. Betsy Folk, another 
Millsaps graduate and new ad- 
dition to the English Depart- 
ment, received her M.A. from 
Vanderbilt University and since 
finished the necessary course 

work for a Ph.D. in English. 
Mrs. Folk believes in a stimu- 
lating class discussion instead 
of pure dictation as a way of 
learning. She wants to install 
creativity in her students as 
they analyze their writing and 
watch their skills develop. She 
enjoys the energy in learning at 
Millsaps and its trend towards 

Yoko Baba comes from 
Kobe City, Japan by way of 
Oklahoma. She received her 
B.B.A. from Kwansei Gukuin 
University, Japan, an M.S. 
from Pittsburg State Universi- 
ty, and an M.S.W., M.A. and 
Ph.D. from the University of 
Oklahoma. Dr. Baba claims 
that outside of her work, her life 
is boring that, in fact, Sociology 
is her life. When asked what she 
wants to do if given time. Dr. 
Baba responded that she would 
like to visit another eastern 
country like China. However, 
Dr. Baba also adds that she just 
does not have the time. 

New as a full-time voice in- 
structor, Mrs. Cheryl Coker is 
certainly not a new face on cam- 
pus. Mrs. Coker receiver her 
B.M.Ed, and M.M. at the Uni- 
versity of Southern Mississippi 
and has spent the last three 
years teaching at Millsaps. To 
her, working with Millsaps stu- 
dents is quite a challenge re- 
quiring her to expand her 
knowledge in dealing with indi- 
vidual voices and personalities. 
This need coupled with the en- 
thusiasm of the students pro- 
vide a stimulating atmosphere 
for professional development 

and gratifying teaching exper- 

One of the two new assistant 
professors of History, Patrick 
Delana, received his B.A. at Ev- 
ergreen State College and his 
Ph.D. at Claremont Graduate 
School. Dr. Delana is interested 
in interdisciplinary studies 
which is what attracted him to 
Millsaps College. He likes the 
liberal arts school that is com- 
mitted to the liberal arts and 
claims one of our prime attrac- 
tions is the Heritage program. 
Dr. Delana has taught at Har- 
vey Mudd College and Santa 
Ana College. 

Edward Ryan received a 
B.E. from the University of 
Omaha, a B.S. and an MBA 
from Michigan State Universi- 
ty and DBA from George 
Washington State University. 
Professor Ryan commenced his 
teaching career in 1975 after 
serving with the United States 
Air Force for twenty-five years. 
He believes that his Air Force 
career, including world-wide 
travel and operational control 
over Air Force courier (top se- 
cret) matters, gave him the in- 
sight necessary to teach and ad- 
vise at the college level which he 
really enjoys. 

Receiving his B.S. and M.S. 
at the University of Southern 
Mississippi and his Ph.D. at 
Oklahoma State University, 
Hugh J. Parker is now an asso- 
ciate professor of accounting. 
He has previously taught at the 
University of Southern Missis- 
sippi and also has ten years of 
experience as a public accoun- 

tant; he is also a Gold Medalist 
on the CPA exam. Dr. Parker is 
his family's third generation to 
attend Millsaps. 

The new instructor of math- 
ematics, Sara Elizabeth Napp, 
received her B.S. at the Univer- 
sity of Alabama and her MAT 
at Livingston University. Mrs. 
Napp believes math helps to de- 
velop one's thinking skills and 
allows one different ways of see- 
ing things. Attracted by our 
reputation, Mrs. Napp feels 
fortunate to have the opportuni- 
ty to work at "such a wonderful 
institution as Millsaps". 

William A. Hailey, a new 
professor of Business Adminis- 
tration, received his B.B.A. at 
the University of Mississippi, 
his MBA at Loyola and his 
Ph.D. at the University of Ken- 
tucky. Aside from teaching. Dr. 
Hailey hopes to do research in 
the areas of quality assurance 
and management information 
systems. Dr. Hailey raced ca- 
noes for fourteen years and even 
competed nationally. He still 
enjoys flying down a river every 
now and then. 

Dr. Cecilia Cornell, new as- 
sistant professor of history, re- 
ceived her B.S. from Western 
Oregon State College and her 
M.A. and Ph.D. from Vander- 
bilt University. As a long term 
goal, she wants to complete her 
book on the origins of the Cold 
War. She hopes to use her own 
research and writing to make 
teaching a process of mutual 
discovery for both teacher and

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 
of civilization." 

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 
American Mathematical 
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."

Editor's note 

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. 

Victor Matthews 
1988 Bobashela Editor
