rying to capture a year in
the life of Miilsaps Col-
lege is a challenging task.
Pictures of campus events,
friends, and mentors pile up in
the Bobashela office over the
year and an attempt to sort
through them and arrange them
in a presentable order is a slow
process. Memories of people,
classes, hopes, and dreams fill the
mind as picture after picture fill
my hands and fill my eyes. It
seems hard to believe that I have
been here four years and that in
May of 1 989 I will leave Miilsaps
with these memories that I will
carry with me for always. For
me, being a senior, this yearbook
is the most important ever — it is
of my year, my last year as an
undergraduate at Miilsaps —
and it is a book filled with memo-
ries of my friends and my life as a
Miilsaps student. It is a book for
all of us; it is a book of the year in
the life of the continuous commu-
nity we are all a part of and will
remain a part of for the rest of
As a college community, we
struggle and grow in reaching for
the future. The purpose of this
yearbook is to piece together
through pictures and text the
fight and struggle, the joy and
pain we all share in learning to-
gether and growing together to
be the best human beings that we
can possibly be. Whenever we
view this book of the year 1988-
89 let us reflect on how we have
matured and what we have
learned from that time.
In thinking back over my years
at Miilsaps, a question that kept
recurring to me was why are we
here? What is the importance of
being liberally educated people,
and what is the purpose of our
education? The philosopher,
John Dewey, addresses this ques-
tion by saying, "With the renew-
al of physical existence goes, in
the case of human, the recreation
of beliefs, ideals, hopes, happi-
ness, misery, and practices. The
continuity of any experience,
through renewing of the social
group, is a literal fact. Education,
in its broadest sense, is the means
of this social continuity of life.

... By various agencies, uninten-
tional and designed, a society
transforms uninitiated and seem-
ingly alien beings into robust
trustees of its own resources and
ideals. Education is thus a foster-
ing, a nurturing, a cultivating
process. All of these words mean
that it implies attention to the
conditions of growth." A liberal
education gives us the opportuni-
ty to become well-rounded indi-
viduals living together as one in a
community. Our education is
what we are and what we strive to
become and there is a direct rela-
tionship between who we are as
people and what we learn. Our
education is a continuous pro-
cess. It is a small part compared
to the time span, but nevertheless
an essential and meaningful part.
We as a community of scholars
grew a great deal this year. This
is a year where a lot of changes
occurred at Millsaps, and as a
community we struggled togeth-
er to create change. We struggled
to actualize our education — to
put into practice what we learn in
order to live fully as citizens of
the world. Our education pro-
vides us with a means to live. The
philosopher, Alfred North
Whitehead discusses the role of
education in us living our lives.
"Education is the guidance of the
individual towards a comprehen-
sion of the art of life; and by the
art of life I mean the most com-
plete achievement of varied ac-
tivity expressing the potentiali-
ties of that living creature in the
face of its actual environment.
This completeness of achieve-
ment involves an artistic sense,
subordinating the lower to the
higher possibilities of the indivis-
ible personality. Science, art, re-
ligion, morality, take their rise
from this sense of values within
the structure of being. Each indi-
vidual embodies an adventure of
existence. The art of life is the
guidance of this adventure." In
trying to perfect this art — the
art of life, the Millsaps communi-
ty tackled its problems head on.
The problem of low minority
enrollment on campus was on the
forefront of many people's minds.

It seems that 1988-89 was a time
when our entire nation became
interested in our minority popu-
lation and we saw a renewed
struggle for civil rights. Minority
enrollment all over the country
was dwindling during the 1980's,
and it is a serious problem that
our educational system faces.
The movie "Mississippi Burn-
ing," released in 1989, brought
national attention to race rela-
tions in Mississippi, and although
not portraying an accurate pic-
ture of the Civil Rights Move-
ment, it renewed national inter-
est. On the Millsaps campus in-
terest was sparked when senior
honors student Laura McKinley
delivered to an overflowing
crowd at Friday Forum her hon-
ors paper on Millsaps's role in the
Civil Rights Movement. Laura
reminded us of our history as a
courageous and open minded col-
lege during a turbulent time, and
she challenged us as a communi-
ty to make more of an effort at
improving the minority situation
on the campus now.
In response to some of the is-
sues raised in the consultation on
the Status of Minority Students
at Millsaps a new and needed po-
sition was created in Student Af-
fairs. Ms. Carolyn Thompson
was hired as coordinator of Mi-
nority Affairs to lend support to
the minority students on campus.
It will be interesting to see where
Millsaps is with its minority
problem a few years from now.
With community discussion and
action, Millsaps may once again
be a leader in the movement for
In following the tradition of
the consultation on the Status of
Minority Students, the Millsaps
community began in 1988-89 to
address another problem in a so-
cial forum. The consultation for
the Status of Substance Abuse at
Millsaps was a constructive dis-
cussion on another problem in the
college community that members
saw a need to bring out into the
open. These consultations are ex-
amples of members of the com-
munity actualizing their educa-
tion — not just studying how to
be the best

person possible, but working
through action to become the
best person possible.
During the 1988 national elec-
tions many students became in-
volved in the campaigns. The
College Democrats and the Col-
lege Republicans brought the is-
sues to the Millsaps students and
through their local efforts be-
came involved in national poli-
tics. A group of faculty and stu-
dents started a local RESULTS
chapter and have become quite
successful in their efforts. RE-
SULTS is a political lobbying
group working for the purpose of
ending world hunger. This is an-
other example of students taking
their beliefs and putting them
into action. It is an example of
the members of the smaller Mill-
saps community realizing their
relationship and responsibility to
the larger world community.
1988-89 was a politically active
year for the Millsaps community.
The 1989 Student Symposium
was on the new developments in
the Soviet Union with Glastnost
and Peristroika, and their impact
on the U.S. /Soviet relations. A
Millsaps alumnus, Dr. Thomas
Naylor, gave the opening address
which was an overview of Glast-
nost and Peristroika. Dr. Jackson
Piotrow from the American Uni-
versity in Washington D.C., gave
an address on how these changes
affect the United States, and
Counselor Serguei Kislyak from
the Soviet embassy in Washing-
ton told how these changes affect
the Soviet Union itself. So, in
1988-89, Millsaps was not only
discussing its own problems, but
it was also discussing national
and international problems —
discussion that is necessary to be-
come world citizens.
Several events occurred during
the year that spurred the commu-
nity into action and discussion,
but probably the most memora-
ble was the consequences of the
article the Purple and White
published concerning the Friday
Student Program. Suresh
Chawla, the newly appointed edi-
tor, resigned after the article and
rumors that President Harmon
intimidated him swooned all over

The faculty and students rallied
in support behind Suresh and
after President Harmon issued
an apology, Suresh returned to
the helm of the P&W. Millsaps
students will fight to protect their
rights, freedom of the press being
one of them, as they have in the
past and will continue to butt
heads with the administration in
securing those rights.
1988-89 is the year marked by
Dean Good's retirement. As
Dean of Students, Dean Good
has been an asset to Millsaps and
has been a central figure in the
Millsaps community. His com-
passion and wisdom in dealing
with students has won him re-
spect and love from the student
body. He is a man who is truly
concerned and wholly dedicated
to the students of Millsaps, and
after his retirement, he will sure-
ly be missed.
1988-89 is also the year
marked by Millsaps attaining
Phi Beta Kappa. After a long
hard struggle, the Mississippi Al-
pha Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa
was installed in March 1989. The
awarding of the Phi Beta Kappa

production of A Bequest to the Nation
chapter to Millsaps points to our
long tradition of excellence in the
liberal arts, our commitment to
learning, and the character of all
those associated past and present
with the Millsaps community.
The P&W stated in an article
about Millsaps award that "Phi
Beta Kappa symbolizes the belief
that the liberal arts will remain
essential to any meaningful un-
derstanding of the human condi-
tion; and encourages intellectual
honesty and tolerance, as well as
understanding." Dr. Lee Reiff
said, "We have received an in-
heritance. It's our business to use
it, mint it, and pass it on. A new
century has begun at Millsaps."
Let us not forget what the pur-
pose of our education means in
our lives. So, as we look at the
memories shared on the follow-
ing pages, let us remember who
we are as members of the Mill-
saps community and from where
we have come. Contained on
these pages for us all is a year in
the life of Millsaps College.

The Homecoming celebration reminded

Dusy as they concentrated their efforts on

The sororities', fraternities' and Indepen-

ivell decorated with colorful floats. During
;he pregame activities, the Phi Mu's were
innounced the winner of building the float
ivhich best exemplified the spirit of Home-
;oming; Pi Kappa Alpha received second
Mace and Chi Omega won third place. Lat-
r that day, the cheerleaders boosted school
spirit with their lively pep rallies, complete
with intricate stunts and cheers. Also in-
cluded in the celebration was the alumni
dinner and the fraternity
and sorority open houses.
Millsaps students also
were in charge of distrib-
uting and designing the

The pre-game show
was highlighted by the
announcement of Angie Belzer as Home-
coming Queen. Escorted by Marshall
Brackbill, Angie received her crown from
President Harmon before a packed crowd
in the stadium. The Queen and her court
were chosen through nominations and elec-
tions by the student body. The Queen's
court included: Tracy Applewhite, escorted
by Billy Bergner; Christine Bakeis, and her
escort Bobby Brown; Betsy Flowers, with
her escort Marshall Pearson; and Dorree
Jane Smith, escorted by her brother Tripp
With kick-off immediately following the
presentation of the court, fans displayed a
devoted spirit to the Majors. The crowd's
dedication rallied the team throughout a
difficult and trying game against Rhodes.
Although the game ended in a loss for Mill-
saps, the players contin-
ued to be cheered on by
the fans. As Terrance
Turner commented, "We
wanted to win this game
for Coach Davis. Every-
one was trying really
hard, but the ball didn't
bounce our way."
Despite the football
loss, the Homecoming celebration contin-
ued as the young alums and students gath-
ered at the Ramada Inn-Coliseum for the
final party of the weekend. The crowds en-
joyed this relaxing time with little thought
of the fatigue of the day's events. For the
seniors, this will be a memorable Home-
coming weekend. Queen Angie Belzer re-
flected on her unique day: "Homecoming
1988 is definitely one which I will never
forget. I look forward to returning next year
as an alum and seeing how much my class
has changed in such a short time."

uring this past
year a task
group of the
istry Team, in conjunc-
tion with various groups
on campus, sponsored the
Consultation on Sub-
stance Abuse. The object
of the participants was
first to raise conscious-
ness on campus about the
problems that accompany
drug use or abuse through
a campus-wide discussion
and then to use that infor-
mation to make a positive
impact and statement on
the Millsaps community.
The Consultation was
the brainchild of Millsaps
chaplain, Don Fortenberry, who has
seen the need for an open, candid discus-
sion on substance abuse. This issue has
gained widespread national and regional
attention recently; one of the ideas sup-
porting the Consultation was to focus
that attention on a part of the problem:
college campuses. The emphasis placed
on such a sensitive and controversial top-
ic was not intended to single out Millsaps
as an institution with unusual drug prob-
lems. Instead, it was meant to raise the
awareness of students, faculty and ad-
ministration on what it means to use or
abuse drugs and that the intervention
methods are in helping someone with an
The consultation was modeled after
last year's Consultation on the Status on
Minority Students which involved stu-
dents, faculty and administration in a
campus-wide discussion that resulted in
not only a raised level of awareness but
new programs and education which car-
ried the issue into the next semesters.
The Consultation was led by Jack Lo-
flin, an experienced group-dynamics
leader, and Don Forten-
berry who asked the
group to discuss the reali-
ties of the drug situation
on campus and what can
be done to help correct
any problems that cur-
rently exist. Participants
came up with many ideas
for long-term work such
as establishing a network
of faculty who would be
willing to be used as con-
tact persons, establishing
more readily available
education for students
and faculty. Other ideas
emerging from the Con-
sultation were special
workshops dealing spe-
cifically with substance
abuse for the faculty, RAs, perspectives
leaders and any other interested persons;
also, an expanded freshman orientation
program will take time to focus on this
important topic. These goals are in the
works in hopes that not only will more
education be available but also that the
issue will stay alive in the semesters to
come. Presently, the task group on
Substance Abuse is working to imple-
ment these goals and is continuing to
promote awareness in different areas.
The group has worked hard to avoid get-
ting its cause lost in the bureaucracy of
its programs and in the many ideas that
are suggested. The strength of the group
lies in its seeing the need to continue
promoting awareness as well as in ac-
tively reaching out to any students, fac-
ulty, or staff who could possibly have an
addictive problem. The group's goal is
not to hunt for such persons but to pro-
mote education and the appropriate con-
soling for anyone who suffers from such
an addictive disease. Through its ideas
and continued dedication, the group
hopes to touch many people on campus.

A Conspiracy of Silence
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Ht' ' '^'-^v'' -^H^^^^B
"Conspiracy of silence" is a
phrase which has gained increas-
ing significance since it was first
applied as a definition of the pub-
lic situation at Millsaps by Bob
Whitney, the Director of the
Writing Program, in an article
appearing in the Writing Center
Newsletter. Bob pointed out that
as members of a community, we
are failing to carry out our obli-
gations which involve taking a
public stand when conflicts arise
and voicing our opinions, howev-
er discordant, in the marketplace
Further, Bob expressed the
fact that our lives as students at
Millsaps College go beyond just
making the grade. How can we
truly glow if we continue to ne-
glect the rich learning opportuni-
ties which surround us? Events
such as Friday Forums, plays,
lectures, art displays and films
are vital to our education; one's
education is not limited to the
classroom. These activities not
only affect our personal growth
but also help us to make connec-
tions and to realize our commit-
ment to the larger world that ex-
ists beyond the belltower and the
iron fence. Let's face it; the lines
"I have too much to do," and "I
don't have enough time" grow
We cannot become engaged in
the world beyond Millsaps if we
remain indifferent towards seri-
ous social problems which affect
us on our own campus. Instances
of such arresting issues have ap-
peared this year and it is impera-
tive that students, faculty, staff
and administration act on them
in order to promote change. For
example, problems such as racial
segregation in the Friday Stu-
dent Program, racial separation
in the Greek system, and the ex-
tremely small numbers of minor-
ity student and faculty are ques-
tions which have arisen in our
own academic community in the
past few semesters.
Avoiding public discussion of
these issues serves only to rein-
force their anchorage. The stu-
dents can be instrumental in
breaking the spell of silence. If
the majority of students fail to
voice their views and to act on
them, they have, in effect, killed
the issue and any chance of it's
being changed for the better.
Waiting for the ominous, author-
ative "they" to take care of such
situations for us or to cover our
tracks is a cop-out and doesn't get
anything good accomplished.
Now, it's our move.

The purpose of
adopted by the
faculty and Board
of Trustees, states that the
college has "as its primary
aim the development of men
and women for responsible
leadership and well-rounded
service to their fellow man,
their country, and their
God." Many may wonder
how this purpose is actual-
ized in our lives; the average
Millsaps student is usually
too preoccupied with his own
affairs, his grades or friends
to give any time in service to his fellow man.
Many individuals and organizations spon-
sor projects which are exemplary of the
spirit of volunteerism and service. The cam-
pus philanthropies that are spotlighted are
just a touch of the many that Millsaps stu-
dents and faculty participate in; the impor-
tance of each lies in the fact that they have
concentrated on significant social issues
which affect many people every day.
The first event is the Lambda Chi Alpha
Pantry Raid. This annual philanthropy in-
volves a composite of individuals from so-
rority women to members of the Jackson
area, namely, the Mayor's Youth Council.
The goal of the food drive project is to col-
lect canned goods and other foodstuffs for
the needy of Jackson during the Thanksgiv-
ing season. Like drives of the past, this
year's was a distinct success with a record
36,000 pounds of food raised for the Missis-
sippi Food Network. These 18 tons of food
provided meals for over 27,350 needy mem-
bers of the Jackson community during
The drive was conducted
on the days of November 3-
6. On the first two days, gro-
cery bags were distributed to
over 10,000 Jackson area
homes. Citizens of Jackson
were asked to donate several
non-perishable food items
and to leave these items in a
bag on their doorstep to be
picked up on the collection
days. The residents of Jack-
son gave generously and, by
the end of the week, over
4,000 bags of food had been
The Millsaps community is aware of the
hunger problem that faces Mississippi and
realizes that this project is but a small mea-
sure to combat a massive problem.
The issue of AIDS has received consider-
able attention at Millsaps over the past few
years. Recently, the Campus Ministry
Team sponsored a Friday Forum series on
the issue which indicated a broad concern
about the issue. This year Millsaps gained a
chapter of Habitat for Humanity; as the
group was looking for projects, it seemed
again appropriate to work on a project re-
lated to AIDS. The chapter decided to con-
centrate its efforts on the Sandifer House,
Jackson's residence for persons with AIDS.
Students from many campus organiza-
tions joined the Campus Ministry Team's
AIDS task group in several weekends of
work on the house. In addition to the Habi-
tat for Humanity and AIDS groups, others
who gave of their time and talents were:
members of the Kappa Alpha Order, Sigma
Alpha Epsilon fraternity, the Education
Ministry of the Church Class, and many

Fellowship of Hope Church in Macon, Mis-
On August 29, 1989, the Fellowship of
Hope Church, an interracial congregation,
was the victim of arson. This event was sig-
nificant not only because of the injustice
served to the Church but also because it
raised questions about the degree of change
in racist ideology which so strongly charac-
terized Mississippi years ago. Considerable
attention nationally was focused on the
event and many Mississippians, including
several Millsapians, answered the attention
by acting to help the church's members.
Groups and individuals from around the
state converged on October 1 to raze the
charred structure and worked again in
weekends of March of 1989 to rebuild the
church. Millsaps students, faculty and staff
participated in both sessions.
In the context of the recent release of the
film "Mississippi Burning," participation
was intended to communicate the existence
of a strong commitment to creating an in-
clusive attitude in the state. The involve-
ment of such a large group of Mississippi-
ans in response to the burning of this church
is an answer to the questions that were
raised nationally about the church's burn-

The Adult Degree Pro-
gram at Millsaps was estab-
lished in 1981 when the Col-
lege received a grant to de-
velop a program especially
designed for the adult stu-
dent. The grant has had pro-
found effects on many tradi-
tional and non-traditional
students. Currently, there
are 75-80 adults that and are
working towards a degree.
Despite the special sacrifices
that accompany an adult
student, the rewards of an
undergraduate degree far
outweigh any hardships it
takes to earn a Millsaps di-
The Adult Degree Pro-
gram meets the needs of
adults 24 years of age or older who, because
of work or family responsibilities, cannot
attend college in the traditional fashion.
Before 1981, there was no structured for-
mat, consoling, or scheduling to meet the
needs of an adult seeking a degree. The
grant allowed Millsaps to get in touch with
other colleges which had developed pro-
grams especially for adult students. Harry-
lyn Sallis, an assistant Dean of Adult
Learning and the Director of the Adult De-
gree Program, commented that she worked
with various faculty and administrative
members to establish faculty development
seminars on flexible schedules, individual
consoling and a more overall formal pro-
gram. By February of 1981, the Board of
Trustees approved the Bachelor of Liberal
Studies degree for non-traditional students.
The program features individual academic
advising, an introductory seminar which is
required for all adults, evaluation of pre-
vious college work that includes credit for
prior learning, and an opportunity for inde-
pendent directed study. The progam has
been an an immense help to adults who wish
to return to college or to begin their higher
education. Furthermore, it is significant
that Millsaps is graduating sixteen adults
this May, two of which earned membership
in Millsaps' chapter of Phi Beta Kappa.
One may wonder why an adult would
enter the demanding world of college when
he or she already has a very busy life. Sallis
decided that for some people in their 20s or
30s, an undergraduate degree is "upward
mobility in the job market." A degree from
Millsaps could greatly advance someone in
his career since most businesses currently
stress the importance of being able to think
critically, to write and to make sound judg-
ments. For the older students, a college
education can give one personal satisfaction
as well; this can be especially true for the
women seeking a diploma.
Many of these women grew
up in the Great Depression
and did not go to college al-
though their brothers or hus-
bands were able to do so
more easily. The statistics on
adult students emphasizes
their desire for self-improve-
ment through education: "In
1987, more than 5.2 million
Americans aged 25 or older
were enrolled in college."
These students are pursuing
a degree for personal enrich-
ment, career upgradement,
or for a chance at dual em-
ployment in marriage.
Sallis balances the re-
wards of an undergraduate
degree with the sacrifices
that adults must endure to achieve their
diploma. For example, non-traditional stu-
dents quickly learn that much of college life
is geared to meeting the needs of the tradi-
tional student rather than the adult. For the
older student, this means that they must
pay careful attention to directed study pro-
grams and academic consoling. One of the
hardest problems accompanying most older
students is that they must be mindful of
their spouses because so much time is now
targeted on schoolwork when it was pre-
viously concentrated on the family. The
majority of adult students are extremely
focused and disciplined because of these
factors. In fact, they have some of the high-
est GPAs and more dedication than tradi-
tional students. This is so also because they
can truly appreciate their education and
value its worth more highly than traditional
Another Millsaps adult student is June
Stevens who is also quite active in adult
learning in her position as Assistant Direc-
tor of the Adult Degree Program. Stevens
will be graduating this May with a B.L.S.
in Classical Studies. For Stevens, the "per-
sonal satisfaction of completing a degree"
has been a primary reward of returning to
college. Like many other adult students,
Stevens has seen that she is more motivated
because she so values her education and
also because she can relate her experiences
to her studies.
It has become a trend for adults to return
to college and their returning has benefited
themselves and the traditional students.
The dedication of adults is a shining exam-
ple for all students to take notice of and to
emulate. To many adults, their undergrad-
uate education rewards them with a person-
al satisfaction that can make them a more

In 1989, Millsaps celebrated its annu-
al Founders' Weekend with a taste of
the old and an even better taste of the
new. Founders' Weekend is basically
an event which annually celebrates the tra-
ditions of Millsaps and sets the future goals
of the college. This year, a new era was
established at Millsaps with the installation
of the Mississippi Alpha chapter of Phi
Beta Kappa. Although this was a main
theme throughout the weekend, many other
important events occurred.
The first Greek letter society, Phi Beta
Kappa, which established such characteris-
tics as a seal, initiation rites, and a law code,
has enhanced the Millsaps Community.
The college's long and stressful process of
acquiring a chapter since 1931 was finally
accomplished and honored. The convoca-
tion address was given by Dr. Otis Single-
tary, a Millsaps alumnus and former presi-
dent of the University of Kentucky. Dr.
Singletary, the current president of the Phi
Beta Kappa society, spoke not only of the
importance of a liberal arts education but
also of the "unique atmosphere" of Mill-
In addition to this historical milestone,
Millaps started off its Founders" Weekend
with a Friday Forum given by Dr. W. R.
Cleere, who is Mississippi's commissioner
of higher education. He discussed such to-
pics as the demographics of the situation,
the financing of higher education and the
great faculty shortage of the 1990's. Dr.
Cleere's "visionary leadership" was instru-
mental in such fields as developing new
minimal admission standards for all col-
leges as well as universities throughout
Georgia's education system and helping
these institutions of higher learning to re-
ceive the largest budget increases in history
during the 1988 legislative session.
The weekend got off to a strong start and
was followed by the Founders' dinner which
included an address by Phi Beta Kappa ini-
tiate Dr. Gwin Kolb, an expert in Eigh-
teenth century literature as well as a profes-
sor of Humanities at the University of Chi-
cago. Also included during the festivities
was the presentation of the Distinguished
Professor Award to Dr. Lee Reiff. The
Alumnus of the Year was given to Rever-
end Homer Ellis Spangler, Jr. who was a
past president of Millsaps for twelve years
(1952-1964). He commented on his in-
credible life and how Millsaps was such a
large part of it.
The overall theme of Founders' Weekend
was the dedication of our past leadership
which has set the course for Millsaps not
only into 1989, but towards a future as an

The 1989 Student
Relations: The Ef-
fect of Glasnos-
tand Perestroika" was held on
January twenty-fifth and twen-
ty-sixth. The topic focused on
the apparent opening of the So-
viet Union and the consequential
international positions of the So-
Symposium opened with Dr.
Thomas H. Naylor's speech,
"Overview on Glasnost and Per-
estroika." Naylor is currently
professor of Economics at Duke
University and Managing Di-
rector of the Naylor Group.
Naylor discussed the perpetuation of reform in the
Soviet Union with or without Gorbachev, because
the forces that began the reforms existed indepen-
dently of Gorbachev.
Naylor stated that the reasons for cynicism in
the United States concerning Soviet Reform cen-
ter around the influence of the American Sovieto-
logists that are often biased minorities. He remind-
ed his audience that, "While they certainly have
legitimate grievances, they represent a biased
point of view and should not be permitted to dictate
U.S. foreign policy."
Dr. F. Jackson Piotrow continued Student Sym-
posium with his lecture, "Glasnost: The American
Point of View." Piotrow is the professor of Soviet
Studies and the School of International Service of
the American University in Washington, D.C. He
believes that Gorbachev is secure in his domestic
and international image and that his popularity
is growing. Piotrow cautioned the United States
against staunch ideology and
urged both nations to continue
arms reduction. The inconsis-
tency of the political ideologies
of the U.S.S.R. and the United
States is the source of their con-
flict, according to Piotrow. He
felt that these inconsistencies
should be bridged to combat dif-
ferent international problems.
Piotrow commented that, "Coo-
peration must win over ideology
Presenting "Glasnost: The
Soviet Point of View" was Ser-
guei Kislak, Counselor of Arms
Control Affairs at the Soviet
Embassy in Washington. He de-
fined perestroika as 'reconstruc-
tion' and mentioned that its fo-
cus was economic and political reform. He added
that glasnost, meaning 'New Thinking' or new
openness, has secured itself in the Soviet Union. As
for Soviet forerign policy, Kislack remarked, "We
want cooperation, we will not beg for it." In agree-
ment with Piotrow, he cited the need for continued
In addition to these lectures, a forum on Soviet-
American relations was held. Friekhik Begel-
macher. Beglemacher is a Russian Immigrant cur-
rently teaching ballet for Jackson public schools.
The 1989 Student Symposium at Millsaps was
effective because it provided the Millsaps Commu-
nity with different International positions on glas-
nost and perestroika. Perhaps the presentation of
these viewpoints helped to eliminate unfounded
bias and provided helpful information concerning
the Soviet influence and U.S. reaction to Soviet

Students at Millsaps
College and mem-
bers of the Jackson
community are for-
tunate in that the College is
so dedicated in providing a
variety of cultural and intel-
lectual programs. One of the
most well attended and im-
portant of these programs is
the Friday Forum Series, a
series with topics ranging from education to
astronomy. The presentations are funded
and planned by the Public Events Commit-
tee, a diligent group composed of students
and faculty members who
work semesters in advance to
obtain the best speakers and
topics for discussion. Each
Friday Forum is free and
open to the public.

For many years in
the past, Mill-
saps enjoyed the
Songfest competition as a
highlight of every Spring
semester. The competi-
tion was a chance for the
Greek organizations and
the Independents to show-
vocal talent. The Songfest was revived
this year and received well by an over-
flowing Recital Hall audience. This
year, Songfest was organized to be a
fund raiser for Millsaps' chapter of
Habitat for Humanity.
The competition between the Greek
organizations resulted in an evening of
entertainment for the entire Millsaps
campus. A central committee planned
the Songfest, inviting each Greek soror-
ity or fraternity to participate in the
competition. Each member of the audi-
ence was charged a dollar for admission
and all of the proceeds went to Habitat.
Prizes were given to the top three acts: Pi
Kappa Alpha won first place with their
performance of "Let It Be"; Kappa Del-
ta received the second place prize for "In
This Very Room" and "He's Not
Heavy"; and Chi Omega
was rewarded with third
place for thier cheerful
medley complete with 50s
Most of the partici-
pants may not have been
aware of the importance
of Habitat for Humanity.
Habitat is an ecumenical,
grass-roots ministry with
the goal of eliminating poverty housing.
It hopes to make shelter a matter of con-
science so that there will be no more
shacks and no more homeless people
sleeping on city streets. Habitat's solu-
tion to housing revolves around building
homes with volunteer labor and donated
materials. THe cost of the home is re-
paid over a fixed time period and the
payments are recycled to build more
homes. Furthermore, homeowners are
required to help build their homes. Each
project attempts to transcend the bound-
aries of culture, status and race by work-
ing towards a common goal. Indeed, it
has proven to be a successful program
with far-reraching implications.

one of the most anticipat-
ed events of the year, but
it was even more popular
this year due to the di-
verse schedule of activities. The weekend
began Thursday, April 20 with Millsaps
students and faculty displaying their tal-
ents to a packed Recital Hall in the Sec-
ond Annual Talent Show. On Friday the
prospective freshmen got their first
"taste" of Millsaps with the crawfish
boil in the bowl, and later that evening
Millsaps was treated to a show unfamil-
iar to most, Greek stepping. Sponsored
by the Anti- Apartheid Awareness Task
Group of the Campus Ministry Team
and Alpha Phi Alpha, the stepping con-
sisted of Greeks from Tougaloo, Jackson
State, and Alcorn State showing their
pride in their fraternities and sororities
by dancing and rapping. This busy day
was capped off by Chapter Two, an ener-
getic band who rocked the bowl all night.
Saturday was taken up with sorority
teas and the annual volleyball tourna-

ment as well as a tug of
war which resulted in
some interesting mat-
chups. The day's activi-
ties were only a prelude to
that night's party at Hal
and Mai's, which every-
one was looking forward
to. Starting off the even-
ing was a very fine Dixieland jazz band
which warmed everyone up for the main
attraction, the Neville Brothers. The
Nevilles are certainly one of the most
popular bands that Millsaps has had and
during their show they proved that they
are one of the best bands ever to play for
Millsaps. The popularity of the Nevilles
can be judged by the large faculty atten-
dance which truly made this evening an
event for the entire Millsaps community.
After a very hectic weekend, every-
one's attention turned to the end of the
year and exams, having had one last
fling and showing the prospective stu-
dents what Millsaps has to offer. The
weekend was a great success and every-
one involved deserves praise for their
hard work in making this year's Major
Madness another memorable event,
by Marne Meredith and Scott Pearson
was the beginning of a
very busy and exciting
Major Madness. The Tal-
ent Show is a unique event
in that not only do faculty,
staff and students participate, but a vast
display of undiscovered talent is also
demonstrated. The Spirit Committee
was responsible for overseeing the event
and was quite successful in producing a
program which unified Millsaps stu-
dents, faculty and staff in an evening of
fun and entertainment.
The masters of ceremony, Mark Mays
and Jay Ciaccio, led the packed Recital
Hall audience in between the acts and
greatly added to the easy-going atmo-
sphere. Dr. Steve Smith started the
evening off with two pieces he had com-
posed himself. Dr. Smith, the only facul-
ty member to participate, greatly im-
pressed the audience with his tunes and
received a well- deserved standing ova-
tion. Following Dr. Smith were several
soloists who performed pieces varying
from Simon and Garfunkel to medleys of
rock and roll. The Grail Seekers, an act-
ing group, gained an honorable mention
with their miscellaneous Monty Python

was by Pat Bunch, who

ence. The third-place
winner, Edward Benson,
sang "At this Moment" in
such a delicate but power-
ful voice; he impressed the
audience and the shows
judges greatly. Eight Hits and a Miss
performed in a barber-shop fashion and
was rewarded by the judges with a sec-
ond-place prize. The first place winner
was Paul Case who sang and played the
guitar to two songs that he and his broth-
er composed: "Love Will Last" and
"You Are Not Alone." These two pieces
brought raves from the audience. Each
of the acts exhibited the performer's spe-
cial talents and are exemplary of the
many hidden talents that Millsaps stu-
dents and faculty possess.
The Talent Show is a wonderful ex-
hibit of Millsaps talent in an easygoing
atmosphere. It is a perfect event to begin
Major Madness as students and prospec-
tive freshmen get excited about an up-
coming busy weekend. The Show is also
exemplary of the types of campus-wide
events that ought to be more the norm on

their 88-89 sea-
son with a pro-
duction of Christopher
Fry's "The Lady's Not

mances were held in the

rium from October 4-9.
This poetic comedy in-
volved a cast of eleven
Millsaps students who
journey through a plot of humor and po-
Thomas Mendip, played by Seth Hol-
liday, is a discharged soldier who is wea-
ry of the world and romancing thoughts
of suicide. He comes to a small town and
announces that he has committed at
least one murder, and then demands that
the mayor of the town help to get him
hanged. Thomas is a philosophical hu-
morist and is annoyed when town offi-
cials refuse his request to be hanged. It
seems that the officials do
not believe that Thomas is
guilty. Shortly afterward,
a young girl. Jennet Jan-
demayne, played by Lisa
D'Amour, is brought be-
fore the mayor having
been charged with witch-
craft. Oddly enough, she
has no desire to be burnt
at the stake. Thomas trys
to prove to town officials
how absurd it would be to
refuse to hang a man who wishes to die,
while at the same time killing an attrac-
tive young lady who has no death wish
and to Thomas appears innocent. Unlike
Thomas, Jennet values her life and
fights for her right to live.
Ultimately, Thomas and Jennet fall in
love and both avoid death. The lady is
granted her wish and Thomas finds
someone to care for, thereby giving him
a good reason to live.

A Bequest to the Nation
"A Bequest to the Nation" is
the embellished story of the fi-
nal weeks of Admiral Horatio
Nelson's life. Written by Sir
Terence Rattigan, the play ran
at Millsaps from March 2 to
March 5, 1989. With a cast of
nineteen, the play was the larg-
est production of the year.
The plot centers around the
inner conflict felt within Admi-
ral Nelson (played by Donald
Smith). When the play begins.
Nelson has already left his wife,
Frances Nelson (played by
Shelley Lose) and is living with
his mistress. Lady Hamilton
(played by Becky Baker).
While all of England questions
Lady Hamilton's status as a
"lady," Lord Nelson remains
steadfastly in love with her.
Even though he loves her and no
longer loves his wife. Nelson is
torn between the two. Love
binds him to Lady Hamilton,
while responsibility and honor
binds him to Viscountess Nel-
Frances Nelson charges Lord
Nelson's nephew, George
(played by fourteen year-old
Jackson APAC student, Daniel
Joyner) to deliver a letter to
Lord Nelson during George's
upcoming visit to his uncle. By
delivering the letter, George
acts as the catalyst that causes
Lord Nelson to resolve his po-
Meanwhile, Admiral Nelson
returns to joyous crowds after
spending two years aboard the
Victory, his flagship. It is now
that we learn of his plans to at-

control of the sea. With Captain

British fleet would take on the

son's plan, they would be victo-
Before the attack can occur.
George visits Lady Hamilton
and Lord Nelson. The letter is
given, and fireworks erupt. In
the end, Nelson confronts his
feelings and comes to a conclu-
sion. He, himself, will lead the
attack even though he would
probably be killed during the
battle. The chances for survival
for anyone aboard Victory
would be slim because two
year's worth of barnacle growth
makes a ship slow and an easy
target. He also makes a bequest
to the nation: to have the state

Lady Hamilton upon his death,

The Millsaps Players second
play, "Ghosts," is a provoca-
tive drama written by Henrik
Ibsen. "Ghosts" theme deals
with a complex subject of parental influ-
ence on their children — both directly
and indirectly. It emphasizes the point
that children inherit the qualities and
shortcomings of their parents. "Ghosts"
also deals with typically taboo subjects
such as venereal diseases and incest. The
play is a popular drama and is a pinnacle
in the history of dramatic composition.
The play opens with the
widowed Mrs. Alving,
played by Marion Ben-
son, awaiting the arrival
of her son Oswald (Rich-
ard Read). Oswald is re-
turning home for the
dedication of an orphan-
age which was built in
honor of his father's
memory. He flirts with
Regina, a maid in Mrs.
Alving's home. Regina
turns out to be his father's
The orphanage burns
down and Regina flees in
disgust when she learns
the truth about her par-
entage. During the play,
Mrs. Alving must contend with the mor-
al preaching she receives from Pastor
Manders (John Jabaley). In the end,
Mrs. Alving is left alone to care for her
helplessly insane son, who has fallen
prey to the social disease which killed his
"Ghosts" is one of a handful of world
dramas that changed the world's literary
landscape. When the play was initially
published in 1881, the response was
overwhelmingly negative and the press
almost destroyed any positive aspects
the play might have. In the country of
Scandinavia it was morally banned be-
cause it was dealing with subjects which
could be not decently discussed.
What were once Victorian taboos —
incest and venereal disease — have long
been destroyed, but the underlying mor-
al thought involves a radical perspective
for the audience. To ignore our true roots
and true impulses will tend to develop a
vengeance that can devastate our future
"I think we are
living ghosts. It
isn't just our in-
our fathers and
walk in us. It is
all kinds of dead
ideas and all
kinds of old and
that live there,
Of particular interest with this pro-
duction are the character involvement
between Pastor Mandors and Mrs. Alv-
ing. Many years ago when the two were
younger, Mrs. Alving loved the pastor.
He repressed any feelings of love for her
and demanded that she concentrate on
her husband and the commitment that
she had to him. This highlights a con-
stant tension of unfulfillable relation-
ships throughout the play. Another ex-
ample of this tension is between Oswald
and Regina, who are romantically inter-
ested in each other but the
fate of their parentage has
dictated that they can
never truly be together.
The ghosts of Oswald's
father and his mistress,
Regina's mother, live
through the two of them
as their relationship ulti-
mately ends up in bitter-
"Ghosts" turned out to
be a particularly interest-
ing and enthralling play
for Millsaps College. It
enjoyed a successful run

The Millsaps Players ended their 65th
season with George Bernard Shaw's
comedy, "Misalliance." Set in England,
1 909, in the country estate of upper mid-
dle-class merchant John Tarleton, the
play centers around the Tarleton family
— in particular, John Tarleton (Paul
Burgess), and his daughter Hypatia
(Jennifer Mautrerer). Tarleton is a man
who enjoys discussions. He is
a well read man and follows
each idea with an author to
support him. Hypatia is a re-
bellious youth who desires
the thrills of adventure and
laments the dullness of end-
less debate and the "proper"
life she is forced to lead. She
is engaged to Bentley (Don-
ald Smith), the son of Lord
Summerhayes (John Jabaley), an aristo-
crat. Bentley is a coward who throws
tantrums when he doesn't get his way.
Mrs. Tarleton (Marion Benson) is a
pleasant wife who enjoys offering tea
and sympathy to any and all. She warns
her daughter of the "horrors" of min-
gling with ladies of the aristocracy who
talk about such "improper" things as
plumbing and central heating.
The "tranquility" of the quiet week-
end in the country is suddenly interrupt-
ed by the airplane crash of two young
pilots: an old school chum of Bentley's,
Joseph Percival (Douglas Mitchell) and
a Polish woman acrobat, Lina Szczepan-
owska (Shani Hedden). The women are
shocked that Lina is wearing pants and
doesn't have a dress to change into for
dinner. The men, on the other hand, are
enchanted with Lina. Once the guests
are shown to their rooms, a Mr. Gunner
(David Laird) arrives to kill Mr. Tarle-
ton. Apparently he had an affair with
Gunner's mother and left her
in her misery. Lina foils the
murder attempt and it is dis-
covered that Hypatia has
fallen for Joey. Everyone at-
tempts to cover up the facts,
but Mrs. Tarleton knew
about Gunner's mother and
takes the boy's side. Mean-
while, the two fathers and
their sons have propositioned
Lina. John Tarleton, Jr. (Clifton Jeffer-
ies), has even asked her to marry him.
Lina is the only one among them who has
any common sense. She tells everyone a
few "home truths" and decides to take
Bentley away with her in the Aeroplane.
Since the play was originally entitled "A
Debate in One Sitting," the play appro-
priately ends with nothing left to say.

without reason. During her stay here Tracy has been
involved in many school activities. She was the Art Club

Bobby Brown leaves Millsaps but will be remembered by
many who remain here and by many that he has graduated

The independent's sports teams played impor-
tant roles during the intramural season, tying for
first place in outdoor soccer and then moving
inside to tie for first place again in B league bas-
ketball. But our year was not filled just with
sports; the singing group, The Grail Seekers, won
an honorable mention at the talent show. But we
also refused to stop at singing, and decided to
throw the first annual Booze and Blues party at
T-2. The parties continued with a massive road
trip to New Orleans during Mardi Gras. It still
doesn't seem possible that we squeezed that many
people into that little room, but a great time was
had by all that went. The year ended with a mas-
sive pilgramage to see Bill and Ted's Excellent
Adventure, followed by a pizza party at Gary's.
We hope to continue the traditions next year and
have a great time.

Alpha Kappa Alpha was founded at
Howard University in Washington,
D.C., in January 1908. This sorority for
outstanding women was started by Ethel
Lyles and has grown from the original 1 6
members to over 100,000 members in-
ternationally. The purpose of this soror-
ity is to cultivate and encourage high
scholastic, social, and community
achievements and to instill within the
alumni an interest in the college life of
AKA. The Lambda Iota chapter at Mill-
saps was established in May of 1977. As
one of its yearly activities, the Millsaps'
chapter adopts an African Village Pro-
ject. Other projects include participat-
ing in the Assult on Illiteracy Program
and adopting nursing home residents.

The Omicron Gamma Chapter of the
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity once again
proved that it was worthy of upholding
the aims and traditions set forth by the
national fraternity. The members of the
local A Phi A chapter participated as
subsponsors, with the local alumni chap-
ter, of various groups of Boy Scouts.
In conjunction with the Anti-Apart-
heid Awareness Task Group, Omicron
Gamma Chapter put on a fantastic Step
Show with members of different Black
Greek organizations around the state.
Even though there was some skepticism
of its success, many spectators felt that
the show was well received.
As a part of the first nationally found-
ed Black Greek lettered organization,
the local chapter once again planned a
successful, yet tiresome, pledge line. The
chapter was pleased to welcome Tony
Moore in its ranks as a member of the
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity.

Well, another year has passed and our chapter is
sad to see it go. We made a lot of special memories
this year that will be dear to us for a long time. In
the fall we participated in the walk for Lori Moore,
We worked hard on our homecoming float and has
such a great time we won the Spirit award. We
played volleyball, soccer, and basketball intramur-
als. In November we held our Fall Crush Party,
and celebrated Tri Delta's 100th Birthday. We
ended the semester by selling calenders to benefit
our national philanthropy — Children's Cancer
Research and with a small Christmas Party.
Our pledges were initiated in January, In Febru-
ary we traveled to Hattiesburg, the University of
Southern Mississippi, to meet with fellow Tri Del-
tas for State Day. March brought our Formal-
Moonlight Masquerade and David Bledsoe was
named our nev/est Delta Gent. We made our
Alum's Children very happy by giving them an
Easter Egg Hunt complete with prize eggs and an
Easter Bunny. We have been working hard on our
SADD project, with a hotline and a taxi service!
The semester ended as we said our final farewell to
the 1989 graduating seniors, giving them a special
Pansy Breakfast in their honor. What a year! Keep
it up Tri Delta!

Even before the year began, the men of Kappa
Alpha illustrated their excellence by winning the J.
Edgar Hoover Award at the National Leadership
Institute, This award is given to the top KA chap-
ter in the nation each year. Further, Alpha Mu
finished second highest in the nation among KA
chapters in scholarship while retaining the scholar-
ship cup on campus for having the highest GPA.
This academic excellence continued into the Fall
semester as we again finished on top in scholarship
on campus. Also, in the national level Brother Da-
vid Coffey assumed the position of Education and
Leadership Consultant for the 1988-89 year.
Alpha Mu pledged twenty-eight new brothers
and was excited to have a one-hundred percent
initiation ratio at the end of the semester. With
their help KA was actively involved in raising mon-
ey for the Muscular Dystrophy Association in their
annual telethon. We also exhibited community ser-
vice by parking cars for a black tie fund raiser for
the Ronald McDonald house, made improvements
at Mydelle Gardens, and worked with Friends of
Also involved in a cross section of campus activi-
ties, brothers excelled in student government,
sports, singers, and social efforts such as Habitat
for Humanity. In intramurals KA again held on to
the top spot by winning the Intramural Trophy.
On top of this, the year certainly did not lack the
traditional parties held at the Mansion. The year
was filled with brotherhood rallies. Bid Day, Fawn
Lebowitz, Black and White, Initiation, Valentine,
and the all too famous Luau. With all this in mind
there is no wonder why the past year has been one
of the most memorable and best ever for Kappa
Alpha at Millsaps College.

The Millsaps KD"s had a very busy year. It all began in
August with our summer rush workshop at which time we
prepared the chapter for a hectic first week. The long
parties, late bid sessions, and hard work all paid off on Bid
Day when we welcomed 34 wonderful new pledges into
The rest of the fall semester was a whirl of activities:
swaps, intramurals and Big Sis, Little Sis helped the
pledges get to know their new sisters and fellow Millsaps
students. As usual we had dozens of fundraisers and pro-
jects: The Millsaps Telephone Campaign, Carnation
sales, Songfest. candy bar sales, volunteering at the Ballet,
and a Halloween party for kids from the Methodist Chil-
Social events were also lots of fun. KD mom's and dad's
loved sharing with us at our first Parent's Day reception.
The Open House at Homecoming was a chance to see old
friends. Fall Party, in November, was terrific. Lots of
strange costumes turned out for our party — In the Dark
of the Night.
Spring semester proved to be even more hectic than
Fall, but after initiation we had the help of our 33 newly
initiated members to keep us going strong. Offices were
passed on and a new council succeeded the old. Our Spring
Formal "Emerald Ball" was deemed "party of the year"
by an alum Dagger Daddy. The Swing Band added an
extra fun twist to the party.
We spent the last week of February preparing for our
official visit. Green Thumb Day got our house looking
great and the review sessions prepared us all for our oral
and written tests. Stressful and nerve racking as it was,
our official visit was a huge success.
The week before Spring Break KD's collcted money at
booths at school and Walmart to help support our Sham-
rock Project. Although Spring Break was relaxing, we
were all in full swimg the day afater when our chapter
hosted our annual Easter Egg hunt for the children of
Alumnae. Later that month JADE sponsored a delicious
Banana Split party — definitely one of our better attend-
We spent two nights in a Spring Rush workshop so that
we would look our best for all the prospective students
attending the Spring Rush Teas and Major Madness
Events. We closed out the year with a Pre-Cram- Exam-
Jam which helped get our minds off finals. Our year has
been packed: helping others, playing, studying, working,
learning and having fun!

The past year, to say the least, has been quite suc-
cessful for Kappa Sigma. Our brothers has participat-
ed in numerous projects that have benefited many
people. A clothes drive for the Methodist Children's
home involved unselfish labor towards a worthy cause.
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 members also made a trip
to Rhodes College where they won at a regional Kappa
Sigma Softball tournament. 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

Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity provides its brothers
with the opportunity to undergo a complete and fulfill-
ing college experience. Its heritage is built on human
vision, understanding, idealism and honest friendship.
These ideals have fostered the growth of the Millsap's
chapter of Lambda Chi to develop into one of the
strongest chapters of the international fraternity.
Millsaps' Lambda Chis are actively involved on
campus as well as in the Jackson community. Lambda
Chis participate in varsity and intramural sports, stu-
dent government, honoraries, SBA committees, publi-
cations, teaching assistantships and in the Resident
Hall staffs. This involvement ranges from the presi-
dent of both the College Republicans and the College
Democrats to Perspectives Leaders. Its strong involve-
ment on campus places the men of Lambda Chi in the
center of campus life. Lambda Chi's involvement in
the community ranges from hosting an Easter egg
hunt at the local orphanage to implementing a food
drive which raised nearly $35,000 worth of food for the
needy in Mississippi. Due to the great success of this
local service project. Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity
has adopted 'Pantry Raid' as a national project and
has encouraged all 225 chapters to develop and imple-
ment such a project. Thus Lambda Chi Alpha's in-
volvement and impact stretches beyond the confines of
the Millsaps campus and flows into the Jackson com-
munity where their presence is very well known and
Along with campus and community involvement.
Lambda Chi also promotes brotherhood, self-growth,
and scholarship. Lambda Chi Alpha provides the at-
mosphere for one to become a socially well-rounded
individual without giving up one's own identity. Our
chapter Theta Eta promotes scholarship by stressing
that all its brothers try to reach their own level of
academic excellence. This goal has given the Millsaps'
chapter of Lambda Chi one of the highest GPA's of all
the Lambda Chi Alpha chapters in the nation. Our
scholastic achievement is evident in the fact that
Lambda Chi had more members inducted into Phi
Beta Kappa than any other social organization on
campus. Lambda Chis are constantly striving to attain
their highest potential.
Lambda Chi Alpha has as one of its open mottos
"Vir Quisque Vir" which translated reads "Every
Man a Man." This motto stresses our idea that every
man must fully develop himself emotionally, physical-
ly, and spiritually in order to reach the high goals the
Lambda Chi Alpha represents.

It has truly been an eventful year for Pi Kappa
Alpha. It all began with a highly successful rush
week ending in the pledging of twenty-eight men.
Under the leadership of David Laird, we received a
Chapter Excellence award from National. Of our
many community service projects, three were espe-
cially successful: the American Cancer Society
Fund- Raiser at the Harrington, the Adoption par-
ty at the Mississippi Children's Home and Family
Services Center, and renovation of the Sandifer
The Spring semester began with our chapter
participating in the annual PiKA Delta Regional
Convention. Other successes include a highly com-
petitive intramural season. At Cotton Ball, we
elected eight new Little Sisters: Kelly Werner,
Blair Richardson, Holly Ellender, Melissa
Parcher, Kelly Smith, Melissa Saxton, Camille
Gafford, and Alicia Clifton. Also, Cori Grady was
honored as Dream Girl. As for campus involve-
ment. Pikes were involved in all varsity sports, and
Jay Ciaccio and Jeffrey Blackwood were elected
SBA President and Vice President, respectively.
This year we also held some incredible parties.
Some of these included the annual Delta Bluesfest
Pilgrimage, a great Old North, and a killer initi-

The men of Sigma Alpha Epsilon had a
tremendously successful year during the
1988/89 school term. Our greatest achieve-
ment was the finalizing of our requirements
for becoming a full-fledged chapter. This
was particularly satisfying considering the
tough standards Sigma Alpha Epsilon's na-
tional body places on its colonies and the
arduous chartering process this entails.
The school year began on a successful
note with a great pledge class. They quickly
established themselves in the brotherhood
and organized a philanthropy project in
which the entire chapter went caroling at
the Alcohol Rehabilitation Center for Kids
and donated to them a new stereo, which
was bought with pledge class raised money.
As for social events, the highlight of the fall
semester was definitely the "New Orleans
In-Formal." We hopped on a train with our
dates, and by the time we made it to New
Orleans the train's bar was deficient on
supplies. Needless to say the entire week-
end was a success. The spring semester also
started off well, as we moved into a much
larger house than the one we had been in
the previous year and a half. The pledges
did a great job fixing it up during Brother-
hood Week. In March, we won the Theta
Province Scholarship award, reaffirming
our commitment to maintaining a strong
academic tradition. In April we held an-
other incredible "Paddy Murphy" party,
complete with chicks and guns and fire-
trucks. This wrapped up our year of activi-
ties, and capped off a successful year for
SAE at Millsaps.

The 1 988-89 school year was another great year for
Epsilon Chapter. A busy Rush workshop was followed
by a great Rush as we welcomed thirty-three wonder-
ful new Phis into our chapter; getting to know them
was a treat. Activities like the Phi Halloween party
and our overnight Phi retreat were loads of fun and
helped everyone get to know one another better. The
semester was a busy one as Homecoming soon rolled
around. We were very proud of Senior Angle Belzer
who was named Homecoming Queen and we were also
proud to be the winners of the float competition for the
second consecutive year. Other events from first se-
mester included our Phantasy Island party and the zoo
trip woth the kids from the Bethlehem Children's Cen-
Second semester was just as busy as we started off
with a meaningful Inspiration Week that culminated
with the initiation of our great new activities. Social
service projects from second semester included the
Captain Miracle fundraising campaign in conjunction
with UMC Children's Hospital and the Jackson Pub-
lic Schools, and more activities with Bethlehem Chil-
dren's Center including our annual Easter Egg hunt.
The semester ended on a high note with Enchantress,
our two-day formal and the selection of our five new
Big Brothers: Torrence, John B., David, Chris, and
Phi Mu is proud of its members and the contribu-
tions they make to campus activities. There are Phi
Mu Senators, Singers, Resident Assistants, Cheer-
leaders, Varsity Soccer, Tennis, and Basketball play-
ers. Fraternity Little Sisters, and members of CMT.
Phi Mu's are also active in Sigma Lambda, Omicron
Delta Kappa, Order of Omega, and other campus hon-
This was a terrific year for Phi Mu, and we are
looking forward to continued success next year and for
years to come.

The Chi Delta Chapter of Chi Omega
had another outstanding school year in
1988-89. It all began when we received the
Financial Management Award at our na-
tional convention held this year in St. Louis.
When Rush rolled around we were thrilled
to welcome thirty-four awesome pledges to
the Chi Omega sisterhood. We were in-
volved in many activities including taking
children from the Mississippi School for the
Deaf to the zoo and sponsoring a campus
blood drive each semester. We enjoyed par-
ticipating in projects with the National
Kidney Foundation, Mississippi Ballet
Company, and a local women's shelter.
In between all these activities we man-
aged to find time to study and even won the
scholarship trophy both semesters again!!
We were especially proud of Dosha Cum-
mins, Betsy Flowers, and Dorree Jane
Smith for being three out of seven charter
members of the first Phi Beta Kappa chap-
ter in Mississippi.
In the fall we had our annual Owlman
party and named Jeff B., Jay H., Stan P.,
Marshall P., Glenn M., and Bradley W. as
our newest Owlmen. In December we got
into the Christmas spirit with a "Trim the
Tree" party and Secret Santas. With sec-
ond semester came Chi Omega's third an-
nual Eleusinian Ball and Res. Fest. Chi O

"The Team Behind The Spirit"
Try keeping a smiling face
while yelling at the top of your
lungs and trying to keep up with
the game enough to know wheth-
er to shout, "Go Offense" or
"Hold 'em defense!" If you can
do that, and do it well, then you
ought to try out for the cheer-
leading squad. One of the only
sports on campus that has a job
the whole year, and it's a tough
one — rousing the spirit of the
The football squad, chosen in
the spring semester, cheers on the
Majors as they take the gridiron.
Performing their stunts on little
more than a gravel track, the
cheerleaders organize the fans
into chants and cheers. But, the
final show on the sidelines is the
result of many hours of practic-
ing and hard work.
The basketball squad works
just as hard on the court. This
squad is chosen in the fall semes-
ter to root on the Majors' basket-
ball teams. This includes a chant,
a jump or even providing a choco-
late chip cookie cake to inspire
the Majors on their road trips.

Yes there are quite a few Majors running
around Millsaps' campus but only one real
Major Millsaps. No, not the guy in the
tomb, but none other than the white-beard-
ed, purple-clad, over-sized cheerleader who
runs around at football games flirting with
pretty girls and wrestling with kids. But
that's his job, and who better fits the quali-
fications than junior Mark Mays. He has
the same task as the cheerleaders, but per-
forms it in a three-foot tall headpiece and
floppy suit. The Major is a familiar figure
at Millsaps, on bumper stickers, pencils and
T-shirts, but the real Major and his spirit is
alive in all of us.

Forward from the First Play
1 988 was a year of hopes and
dreams. Some were realized
and some were not. It was a
year which started off with one
goal in everybody's mind, to
make Coach Davis' last season
a special one. The end of an era
in Millsaps football was at hand
and the team was going to make
sure he left a winner. The goal
was to give back some small
part of what Coach Davis had
given over the years.
From the first play, of the
first drive, on opening day it
was apparent what kind of team
we had. The Majors overcame
the rain and Rose-Hulman's
reputation to beat the 14th
ranked Engineers 14-13. This
game was a taste of what was to
come. Things didn't get any
easier though as the season pro-
gressed, and many character-
ized Millsaps as the king of the
"tough win" and the tough loss.
The Majors improved to 2-0 by
defeating the Central Method-
ist Eagles 25-21, and then to 3-0
in a last second win over the
University of the South 17-10.
Owing to its excellent 3-0 start,
Millsaps was ranked third in
the NCAA Southern Region
the following week.
After two tough wins Mill-
saps suffered its first "tough
loss" to the Trinity Tigers 10-7
at home. Overcoming this loss,
the Majors traveled to Colorado
Springs, CO. to play the Colo-
rado College Tigers. In a game
which was important to get the
team back on the winning track,
and to avenge a 1975 playoff
loss the team performed well.
Even after a two day bus trip of
over 1,000 miles the Majors
dominated the game and came
away with a 17-15 victory.
Going into Homecoming
against archrival Rhodes Col-
lege with a strong win last week
was important. The 2nd ranked
Tigers were an excellent team,
and possibly the toughest on our
schedule. Halftime came with
the Majors leading 13-7 and
things looked good, but the Ti-
gers came back in the second
half to win the game 17-13. Al-
though of little consolation, one
of the Rhodes players was
quoted as saying that Millsaps
was the toughest team they had
On the road the following
week against Lambuth College,
the Majors lost a see-saw battle
to the homestanding Eagles 26-
21. With their record at 4-3,
and their last game at Trinity
the Majors had to overcome a
huge hurdle. They bore up well
under the pressure and insured
Coach Davis of a winning sea-
son. This win gave the Majors
their 21st consecutive winning
season and gave Coach Davis
his 138th win against 79 losses
and four ties.
The word that might best de-
scribe this past season was
grueling. With five road trips
and only three home games, two
of which were against national-
ly ranked opponents, this was
one of Millsaps toughest sched-
ules ever. In each of their three
losses none was ever by more
than a touchdown and all were
decided in the last quarter of
the game. There is one thing
that can definitely be said about
the teamand that is that they
played as a TEAM throughout
the entire season. Everyone
gave his all and pulled together
through the good and bad. This
of course follows one of Coach
Davis' philosophies — win or
lose, play as a team and always
be a class act. The players are
proud to be known as one of
In a year of generally young teams
and coaches, we also see the end of
a long, successful career of a much
loved and respected member of the
Millsaps community. Harper Da-
vis resigned as athletic director
and head football coach after 25
years at Millsaps. His first was
against Rhodes by a 2 1 - 1 2 margin .
This was just the beginning of year
after year of winning seasons. This
year the Majors posted another
winning season making this the
twentieth in the past twenty-one.

a set of golf clubs as a retirement
gift. See you on the greens, Coach!

The 1988-89 men's soccer
team started their season with a
victory over Hinds Junior Col-
lege 5-1. This was the team's
first victory under new head
coach David Forsythe. They
were quickly brought back
down with a tough loss in their
second game against Incarnate
Word College 3-0. The team's
next victory was in a very phys-
ical contest against Brescia Col-
lege of Kentucky played here at
Millsaps. Senior goalkeeper
David Laird kept Brescia from
scoring with some 17 saves.
Leading the offense was senior
Brian Gualano who scored two
goals within a ten minute peri-
od. Junior Toni Moore and
sophomore Mickey Brown each
had a goal in the game also.
Millsaps then fell to William
Carey 2-1 and then to Sewanee
3-0. Next came the University
of Alabama, a division 1 school,
who also beat the Majors. Get-
ting back on the winning track
happened against Olgelthorpe
University whom the Majors
beat 3-1. Unfortunately the
year ended with a loss to Ni-
cholls State 4-1.
Awards were presented to
some of the outstanding team
members. Senior Brian Gua-
lano was named the most com-
plete player and also received
the academic honor. Tim Bruni
was named best offensive play-
er, while Toni Melvin was
named best defensive. Fresh-
man John Ellis received the

The 1988-89 women's soccer
team, coached by George
Gober is looking forward to a
much improved and talented
team next year. This year was a
season of learning for a very
young but eager team. Playing
fifteen games, with only three
played at home, the women
were able to defeat most Divi-
sion III schools and kept it close
against the many Division I and
II teams they played. The final
game of the season ended in se-
vere injury for the goalkeeper,
freshman Suzanne Gueydon,
and tension with Millsaps' op-
ponent, the University of
Fifth year senior Mindy
Bowman received both the aca-
demic and mental awards for
her team leadership. The team
voted freshman Anna Harvel
best offensive player and junior
Kim Tadlock best defensive
player. Freshman Angel How-
ington received the award for
most improved player. For the
third season, junior Me-me
Soho was chosen most complete

When the Millsaps Majors
began the 1988-89 basketball
season, they began it without
the services of two of the best
outside shooters that Millsaps
had seen in recent years. Both
Ted Hunt and Jimmy Carr, im-
portant outside threats from
last year's team, had graduated.
The loss of Hunt and Carr
served to change the whole style
of play which the Majors em-
ployed. In 1987-88 over 23% of
the Majors' shots were from the
point territory. Without them
Millsaps was forced to depend a
great deal more on its three in-
side threats: Tyrone McDonald,
David Chancellor, and Tor-
As the season got under way,
the Majors were plagued by an
inability to get off to a fast and
aggressive start in their games.
Again and again, the Majors
would go in at the half behind
by ten or twelve points and
reappear for the second half a
different squad. Whether they
won or lost seemed to depend
largely on how big the deficit
was that they had to overcome
in the second half.
Early in the season the Ma-
jors played host to the Tougal-
loo College Bulldogs. Due to a
sluggish start in which Millsaps
hit only 35% from the field, the
Majors were behind by twelve,
32-20, at the half. As the second
half opened, Millsaps began to
find its stride. McDonald, who
had hit only one of six in the
first half, scored sixteen in the
second half including six of his
last nine. He also had seven re-
bounds and four steals.
Because of their inspired sec-
ond half play, the Majors were
able to tie the game just before
the end of regulation to send the
game into overtime. Seconds
before the end of the first over-
time period, a McDonald pass
to Shelton netted Millsaps two
points to tie the game again at
62. Only with a last second
bucket by Daryl Parker, a for-
mer Millsaps player, were the
Bulldogs able to pull out a two
point victory over Millsaps.
In the second half of the
1988-89 season, Millsaps began
to develop into a tougher, more
aggressive basketball team. Un-
fortunately for the Majors,
however, some of their toughest
opponents came late in the sea-
son. Overcoming their sluggish
0-5 start, the Majors went on to
post a 9- 1 5 season record. This
included tough wins over
Rhodes and Maryville. Among
their losses, there were several
games against tough opponents
such as Tougalloo, Belhaven,
Rust, and Stillman where the
Majors played tough, aggres-
sive basketball and could easily
have won if not for a few crucial
pieces of bad luck of a couple of
The consistent improvement
of the team throughout the year
was apparent as the Majors
ended their season on a winning
note with a pair of victories over
Rhodes College and Pensacola
Christian. According to Coach
Holcomb, "We've improved
each game just about the entire
second half of the season."
Of the two seniors who
graduated this year, Tim Wise
and Tyrone McDonald, Hol-
comb said: "It's tough to lose
two outstanding guys like Ty-
rone and Tim. Anytime you lose
people like them it leaves a big
The loss of Wise and Mc-
Donald, who were known for
both their skill and team leader-
ship, will be keenly felt. Wise,
who holds many of Millsaps re-
cords for assists, was a four year
letterman and a consistent lead-
er on and off the court. Mc-
Donald, a two year letterman
for the Majors, had developed
the reputation for being able to
completely defy the law of grav-
ity in pursuit of the slam dunk
which became his trademark.

Under the leadership of
Coach Davis and Coach Bow-
man, the 1988-1989 women's
basketball team had a success-
ful, but tough season. On the
court the Lady Majors were un-
der the inspiration of captain
Erin Clark who also was elected
the most valuable player on the
team. Many of the Major's vic-
tories can be credited to an ag-
gressive defense and that little
extra effort that was provided
by Elizabeth Hearn and her
play. The offensive play was led
by Erin Clark and Melissa
Cleary, the only freshman start-
er on the team. Other members
of the team who contributed to
the winning efforts were Jamie
Fowler, Felicia Overstreet, and
Edi Stuckey. The season ended
on a positive note with a victory
over Trinity College 70-58. The
Lady Majors plan to continue in
their winning ways throughout
the next season and hope to add
more strong players to the ros-

The 1988-89 Millsaps' men's
tennis team, under the leader-
ship of Coach Jim Montgom-
ery, finished the year with a sta-
ble record of 6-11. With six
members returning from last
year, the squad also welcomed
the skill of Luis Mellado from
Spain along with four promis-
ing freshmen. After an injury
that left senior Dwayne Thomp-
son unable to play for part of
the season, the rest of the team
remained tough during his ab-
sence playing about their usual
spots on the line up. This year
the men hosted the NCAA Di-
vision III Southern Regionals
on their home turf. They lost to
Emory but defeated Rhodes
and Centre College to take
third place overall in their divi-
sion. Highlights of individual
performances included Dwayne
Thompson who despite injury
posted a 5-2 record. In doubles,
the team of senior Todd Helb-
ing and junior Jay Ciaccio fin-
ished with a record of 7-6. Don
Allen, a sophomore, posted an
impressive record of 7-2 in Divi-
sion III singles play. Jay Ciac-
cio finished h is singles season
with a 6-3 record. The injuries
to top players hurt the team but

The 1988-89 Millsaps' wom-
en's tennis team enjoyed a good
season. The team was ably led
under the coaching skills of Dr.
Jim Montgomery and Jenny
Cockrell, a 1988 Millsaps gra-
duate and four year member of
the team. The squad consisted
of only four returning players,
but added to their ranks four
talented freshman and ADP
student Karen Shackleford.
With injuries that forced na-
tionally ranked senior Yvette
Edwards to sit out the begin-
ning of the season, the women
played many matches above
their regular placei-in the line-
up. Then, with Edwards back in
form, the team travelled to
Staunton, Virginia for the
NCAA Division III Women's
Southern Regionals. Losing to
Sweet Brian College, but then
defeating Hollins and Mary
Baldwin College, they took fifth
place overall in their division.
This year's team included
two nationally ranked players.
Senior Paige Carpenter ended
her season at 17-3. Carpenter
made it to the singles quarterfi-
nals in the national Division III
last year and being ranked #2 in
the Southern region, she will
compete again this year. In her
two years as a Major, Carpen-
ter has posted a 37-10 singles
record and a 29- 1 1 doubles re-
cord with Yvette Edwards, who
ended this year with an 8-4 sin-
gles record. This doubles team
finished with a 14-5 record and
will compete at the national

With the Majors losing seven
starting players from last year's
club, there were a lot of new
faces in purple and white uni-
forms. Topping this list was new
Head Baseball Coach Jim
Page. Page was a player for the
Majors from 1981-1985 and
then served for three years as an
Assistant Coach under Coach
Tommy Ranager. Starting in
1989, Page took over the Head
Coach's job following Ran-
ager's promotion to Head Foot-
In 1989 the team returned
only three starters, to combine
with the twelve newcomers, five
sophomores, three juniors and
According to Page: "I guess
you could say that we were all
kind of green. In the beginning,
there was some uncertainty as
to how well we would come to-
gether as a ball team. It was
tough at first. There were mo-
ments when we looked like
things were starting to jell.
Then we would make a few
rookie mistakes and just fall
"Just falling short" could be
used to describe this ball club's
start. The first half of the sea-
son saw the Major's post a 5-12
record, with Millsaps having
the lead in seven of their first
When asked about this.
Page's response was that: "We
were close to breaking it open.
But 'close' wasn't good enough
for these guys. They worked
their tails off to consistently get
a little better each day. They
new it was right around the cor-
It's been said that hard work
and desire promote success.
These two elements are what
contributed to the success that
the Majors would experience as
the season progressed. They
proceeded to win four of the
next five and seven of the next
eleven, including sweeping two
of the three double-headers.
Two particularly big wins
came in Memphis, Tennessee
against conference rival Rhodes
College. The Majors dominated
the Rhodes Lynxcats 8-4 and 6-
3. They then turned their guns
on Stillman College out of Ala-
bama, bombing them 12-2 and
Another big victory came
against cross town rivals, Bel-
haven College. Millsaps defeat-
ed the Belhaven Blazers 4-3, to
record their first victory over
Belhaven in five years.
In summing up the season,
Coach Page said: "We may not
have had as much experience
and talent as everyone else, but
these guys continued to believe
that they could win every time
they took the field. We finished
up way ahead of any expecta-
tions we could have had in the
beginning. Right now I can see
nothing but good things in this
The Majors will return their
entire starting team and pitch-
ing staff, with the exception of
Danny Hughes, whom they lost
to graduation. Hughes led the
team with a 3.40 earned run
average, and was a tremendous
source of leadership for the
young team. "Dan did a super
job for us," said Page, "all four
years that he was here. He real-
ly helped out in a lot of ways
this year, he was a really big
influence on what road this
team took. That's hard to re-

team is a noted first for Millsaps.
This is the first men's cross coun-
try team that has existed on cam-
pus and participated in the men's

try finals as a team. Ken Wil-

the team and runs competitively
against runners from an array of

While the first year is very
much a building one, the team
ran well together. Both the men's
and women's teams are coached
by Mary Ann Edge with the help
of manager/trainer Andy
Rambo. Members of the Men's
team included junior Eric
Schrock and sophomores Ken
Williams, David Westenberger
and Scott Barr. Despite the youth

the team to grow both in number
and strength next year.

"This is only our second sea-

of building a golf program at
Millsaps," said Dr. Mary Ann
Edge, Coach of the two-year old
Millsaps' golf team. Composed
of two seniors, Joey Warwick
and Tim Wise, two sophomores,
John Braddley and David Les-
ter, and two freshmen. Jay
Greiner and David Pettey, the
team competed in seven tourna-
ments, one in October hosted by
Division I school Jackson State
and the rest in the spring. Trav-
eling as far as St. Louis and At-
lanta, the men played compete-
tively against Division I, II, and
III teams. On April 17, the
team competed in the Washing-
ton University Tournament in
St. Louis, Missouri. Millsaps
beat three teams and lost to two
of the eleven competitors by
only a few strokes. Coach Edge
is expecting a lot from next
year's team with so many re-
turning players and the incom-
ing freshmen. She also added
that the Majors will be included
in a Division III conference
next year. This will reduce the
number of Division I and II

A Letter From the Editor
Marshall Comeaux Paine
You always heard me complain about the many faults in
Millsaps and saw me bitter when all my efforts to make
changes ended in failure. Never did I take time to appreciate
the good that can be found in this place. That is, until part oj|
that good was taken away.
The many of us who had the fortune of knowing you werei
able to experience the goodness of your soul. The smiles and)
comfort you gave us will be cherished forever. I deeply regret j
did not say this to you while you were with us. My sad heari
tells me that Millsaps has lost one of its best. Goodbye, my j
friend. 1 will miss you.
