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 
our lives. 

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 
racial equality. 

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 campus.

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

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.

■^^1 that instilled in Millsaps stu-

)ride and dedication towards their college. 
The Homecoming celebration reminded 
he students and faculty of the traditions 
issociated with Millsaps and of the long- 
asting bonds of friendship that are devel- 
)ped in college. The Homecoming weekend 
vas filled with the annual float competi- 
ion, pep rallies, tye-dyed T-shirts, class re- 
inions, and the announcement of the 
homecoming Queen. 

The weekend kept Millsaps students 
Dusy as they concentrated their efforts on 
entertaining themselves and the alumni. 
The sororities', fraternities' and Indepen- 
lents' hard work paid off for the Bowl was 
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 
Homecoming T-shirts 
which were very popular 
this year. 

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 
Campus Min- 

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 
addictive problem. 

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 
of ideas. 

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 
old fast. 
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 
Millsaps College, 
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

Other interested individuals. Workers were 
responsible for scraping and painting the 
house. The project was a visible statement 
on the part of Millsaps students and faculty 
of their concern about the epidemic and the 
need for an understanding response of those 
with AIDS. 

Another example of the Millsaps' re- 
sponse to the needs of others is the help that 
many students, faculty and staff gave to the 
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 
complete person.

Founders' Day 

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 
enlightened community.

The 1989 Student 
Symposium on 
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- 
viet Union. 

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 
biased viewpoints." 

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 
arms reduction. 

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 
weekly enrichment 

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 
Chi Omega 
Songfest competition as a 
highlight of every Spring 
semester. The competi- 
tion was a chance for the 
Greek organizations and 
the Independents to show- 
case their 
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.

It's al- 

w a y s 

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,

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 
delivered a stand-up rou- 
tine to a cheering audi- 
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

The Millsaps 
Players began 
their 88-89 sea- 
son with a pro- 
duction of Christopher 
Fry's "The Lady's Not 
For Burning." Perfor- 
mances were held in the 
Christian Center Audito- 
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- 
larized feelings. 

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- 
tack the French navy and gain 
control of the sea. With Captain 
Hardy (Paul Burgess) leading 
the attack, the outnumbered 
British fleet would take on the 
French, and by following Nel- 
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 
provide for the livelihood of 
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 
illegitimate daughter. 
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- 
heritance from 
our fathers and 
mothers that 
walk in us. It is 
all kinds of dead 
ideas and all 
kinds of old and 
obsolete beliefs 
that live there, 

Mrs. Alving 

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.

Biloxi Blues 

Neil Simon's com- 
edy, "Biloxi 
Blues" was per- 
formed by the 
Millsaps players as the sum- 
mer play of 1988. "Biloxi 
Blues" received 
the 1985 Tony 
Award for the 
'Best Play' and 
was also made into 
a popular movie. 
Simon depicts the 
second part of the 
life of his alter- 
ego, Eugene Mor- 
ris Jerome (Rich- 
ard Read), in his 
drama about his 
life as an army re- 
cruit set in 1945 
towards the end of 
World War Two. 
Simon first intro- 
duced Eugene to 
his audiences in 
"Brighton Beach 
Memoirs." Eu- 
gene's life contin- 
ued in Biloxi, Mississippi 
during basic training with 
five other recruits (Larry 
Oggs, Ernie Cook, Lance 
Waycaster, Adam Plier, Mi- 
chael King). Together they 
endure many hardships. 
Topping the list is a hard- 

nosed drill instructor, Sar- 
gent Merwin J. Toomey 
(John Jabaley). Other tasks 
to be conquered by the six 
men included eating in the 
mess hall, surviving the swel- 
tering Mississippi 
heat and humid- 
ity, and visiting a 
prostitute (Char- 
mion Gustke). Eu- 
gene, on the other 
hand, ends up fall- 
ing in love with 
Daisy Hannigan 
(Lynn Gieger). As 
Eugene matures 
through these ex- 
cursions he learns 
valuable lessons 
about life and fur- 
ther develops his 
"Writer's Sensibi- 
lity." He is con- 
tinuously updat- 
ing his personal 
journal with re- 
flections upon 
these new exper- 
iences. Not being able to go 
and fight, and with his basic 
military training over with, 
Eugene leaves Biloxi antici- 
pating the addition of more 
"chapters" to his ever-rich

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. 
All in all the members of AKA contrib- 
ute time and effort into enriching the 
social, cultural, and scholastic environ- 
ment of both the Millsaps and Jackson

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 
the Zoo. 

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 
our chapter. 

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- 
dren's Home, 

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- 
ed events! 

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 
highly regarded. 

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- 
ation party.

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 
John L. 

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 
ever after we'll remember you.

"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.

and Chris Powell. Right: Basketball cheerleaders standing tall. 





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 

1/ i./. 


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. 

Harper's Boys. 

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. 
This year's team gave Coach Davis 
a set of golf clubs as a retirement 
gift. See you on the greens, Coach!

Men's Soccer 

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

Women's Soccer 

m m \ t^ iy,i . 

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 
Southern Mississippi. 

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

Men's Basketball 

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- 
rance Shelton. 

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 
key miscues. 

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.

Women's Basketball 

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-

Men's Tennis 

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 
Coach Montgomery is looking 
for a much better season next

Women's Tennis 

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- 
ball Coach. 

In 1989 the team returned 
only three starters, to combine 
with the twelve newcomers, five 
sophomores, three juniors and 
one senior. 

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 
twelve defeats. 

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 
clubs future." 

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-

Cross Country 

The 1988-89 cross country 
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 
National Collegiate Athletic As- 
sociation Divisiion III cross coun- 
try finals as a team. Ken Wil- 
liams is considered the leader of 
the team and runs competitively 
against runners from an array of 
bigger and better equipped 

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 
of the team. Coach Edge expects 
the team to grow both in number 
and strength next year.

"This is only our second sea- 
son. We're right in the middle 
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 
teams such as Jackson State 
and Mississippi College, that a 
small school like Millsaps must 
compete against. 

Joey Warwick concentrates on the ball.

A Letter From the Editor 

Marshall Comeaux Paine 

Dear Marty, 

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. 

In Z.A.X.
