On December 7, 1888, 
it was resolved that a 
college would be opened 
for males. The next 
month, Major Ruben 
Webster Millsaps pro- 
posed to donate $50,000 to 
the college if the Method- 
ist Church would match 
the donation. They did, 
and Millsaps College be- 
came more than just a 
dream. The first scholastic 
session of Millsaps began 
on September 29, 1892, 

with a total of one-hun- 
dred and ninety two stu- 
dents enrolled. Millsaps 
produced its first gradu- 
ates in 1895. Despite the 
fact that when first con- 
ceived Millsaps was to be 
an all male college, this 
was never the case. Mill- 
saps College has always 
been co-educational. 
Through the years the stu- 
dents of Millsaps have fo- 
cused on various extra- 
curricular issues to further 

enhance their education 
beyond just book learning. 
The first big issue docu- 
mented by the Purple and 
White was that of inter- 
collegiate athletics. Al- 
though Millsaps did par- 
ticipate in inter-collegiate 
games in 1898, shortly 
thereafter, the Methodist 
Conference forced Mill- 
saps to discontinue its in- 
volvement in sports. The 
students voiced their dis- 
satisfaction for many 

years. Finally, in 1910 
Millsaps rejoined the in- 
ter-collegiate athletic 
scene participating in such 
sports as baseball, basket- 
ball, track and field, gym- 
nastics, and boxing. Foot- 
ball was still prohibited 
and was not allowed until 
1919 when the Millsaps 
team played its first game 
against Chamberlain 
Hunt. Millsaps students 
rejoiced that they were 
now able to participate in

inter-collegiate sporting 
events because interest in 
athletics was high. Mill- 
saps' rivalry with Missis- 
sippi College during this 
time, was one of the most 
intense that has existed on 
this campus. Vandalism 
and threats, along with 
many "wagers," were 

placed, and associated 
with the games. Despite 
the fact that most of the 
sports were played by the 
men, the women engaged 
in their fair share and have 
always been active on 
campus sporting teams. 

Students next voiced 
their concerns over the

Honor System. Initiated 
in 1908, it has been revised 
many times before stu- 
dents, in the spring of 
1923, began to doubt 
whether it was really nec- 
essary. In 1924, opposition 
to the system grew so 
strong that it was abol- 
ished. It would resurface 
again though in the 
1960's, and then again in 
the 1980's. 

The 1930's saw the first 
seeds of civil rights and 
black awareness on the 
campus. Women also be- 

gan to suggest that they 
were being discriminated 
against in 1933. In addi- 
tion, a great number of 
Purple and White articles 
were devoted to recogniz- 
ing blacks as people and 
worthy of being treated as 
such. In this same vein, 
there was a push to in- 
crease the salaries of the 
janitors, most of whom 
were black, in 1936. The 
push which recognized 
blacks as human in the 
thirties led to a general 
consensus that blacks 

were not inferior to whites 
in the forties (although 
some toolc exception to 
this idea). 

The 1940's saw the out- 
break of World War II, 
and with most of the men 
at war, the Millsaps wom- 
en were given the opportu- 
nity to hold previously 
male dominated posts, 
such as editor of the Pur- 
ple and White and Boba- 
shela. However, the wom- 
en did rejoice in the spring 

of 1943 when the men in 
the V- 1 2 unit of the Navy 
were stationed on campus. 
The V-12 unit stayed at 
Millsaps for two years. 
When the war ended 
though, the return of men 
to school gave impetus to 
what would be the biggest 
issue of this decade; the 
lack of social programs on 
campus. More specifical- 
ly, Millsaps students of 
the 1940's desperately 
wanted to have the ban on

dancing lifted. The stu- 
dents on campus contin- 
ually cried out for faculty- 
supervised dances in the 

Beginning in the 1950's, 
women protested the rules 
which affected their ev- 
eryday lives; especially the 
ones which prohibited 
them from wearing shorts. 
In addition, most students 
were dissatisfied with the 
current cut system, which 
required you to attend the 

daily Chapel service. 
After several appeals, a 
new cut system was initi- 
ated in 1959. The talk of 
possible integration of 
blacks into the student 
body during the 1950's 
was generally supported 
by most of the college. 

Oddly enough, in the 
1960's, there was in- 
creased opposition to the 
drive to admit blacks to 
Millsaps. Although there 
were many supporters of

integration within the 
Millsaps community, 
there were incidents of 
vandalism against proper- 
ty of visiting blacks. How- 
ever, when Millsaps did 
decide to admit blacks in 
1965, the administration 
was critized not for letting 
blacks in but for its mo- 
tives. Students and faculty 
thought that the move was 
too late and speculated 
that the admission of 
blacks was due to the 
$200,000 in federal funds 
the college would be re- 

ceive for doing so. 

Generally speaking, the 
Millsaps attitude of the 
sixties paralleled that of 
most people under thirty 
years of age during that 
decade. Although there 
was some support of the 
United States involvement 
in Vietnam at the begin- 
ning of the war; within a 
year the tone had turned 
to anti-war. A "Free Uni- 
versity" in Jackson was or- 
ganized by a small group 
of students from Millsaps 
and Tougaloo in 1967. 

This group established it- 
self in order to have free 
discussions rather than the 
standard lectures usually 
utilized by the professors. 
It was during this time 
that Millsaps earned its 
reputation as the hot-bed 
of communism in the 
Jackson community. 

The students of the 
1970's continued to con- 
centrate on race relations 
and women's lib. When 
two Jackson State stu- 
dents were shot on Jack- 
son State's campus by po- 

lice, Millsaps students 
marched on the Gover- 
nor's Mansion in protest 
and support of equality. 

But during the decade 
of the seventies Millsaps 
really began to grow as a 
college. Millsaps students, 
though, were outraged 
when the Holiday Inn was 
built in 1970-71, because 
they felt the ideal of a lib- 
eral arts education was be- 
ing tainted by commer- 
cialism. Many students 
pointed out the irony of 
having a hotel situated on

the campus, while there 
was virtually no visitation 
policy in existence. This 
social pressure forced the 
beginning stages of a visi- 
tation policy to be devel- 
oped at this time. Women 
were now allowed in men's 
dorms, and men in wom- 
en's for the first time in 
the history of the college. 
Of course there, were re- 
strictions, both men and 
women had to sign into 
each others dorms, and the 
visitation rights were for 
only a few hours during 
the weekend. 

The entire college was 
up in arms when in the 
spring of 1979 when the 
Else School of Manage- 
ment came on the scene. If 
the liberal arts education 
ideal had been tainted 
with the Holiday Inn in 
the first part of the dec- 
ade, many students and 
faculty felt that the School 
of Management would en- 
danger the integrity of 
Millsaps as a provider of 
quality education. Much 
of the controversy sur- 
rounding ESOM re- 
mained in the seventies 

though, and it has since 
become an accepted part 
of Millsaps' curriculum. 

Racism and women's lib 
were carried over from the 
seventies to the eighties. 
Students were active in 
black awareness and were 
even motivated to protest 
Apartheid in South Africa 
by building a Shantytown 
in the Bowl in the spring of 
1986. The night after it 
was built, some students 
burned down the Shanty- 
town and angered most of 
the Millsaps community. 
Minority affairs, in gener- 

al, have become a major 
concern on the campus, 
and the school is taking 
steps to increase not only 
black enrollment, but mi- 
nority enrollment overall. 
Once again, in the 
spring of 1986, a new 
Honor Code was pro- 
posed. After a year of de- 
bate, the Honor Code was 
voted down by the Mill- 
saps Student Body. 
Around this time, the ad- 
ministration aroused the 
righteous indignation of 
faculty and students with 
the building of the Bell

Tower, termed a "colossal 
waste of money" by some. 
By now the students have 
become accustomed to the 
hourly chiming of the Bell 
Tower, and most don't 
seem concerned with it 
much any more. During 
the past few years, stu- 
dents have begun to de- 
mand a greater voice in 
administrative decisions. 
One of the most controver- 
sial subjects in which the 
students want a voice is 
the visitation policy. Most 
students seem to believe 
that the policy needs to be 

heavily relaxed, and some 
believe that it could be 
done without. 

Beginning with the 
1989 school year the 
Greek Rush system was 
delayed until mid-way 
through the first semester. 
This rather controversial 
move was first discussed 
as early as 1983, but has 
taken many years to im- 
plement. As with most is- 
sued on the campus the 
student body is divided on 
whether it was a positive 
move or not, perhaps only 
time will tell. 

Millsaps now begins a 
whole new century. It has 
come so far during the 
past one hundred years, 
and the possibilities seem 
almost limitless for the 
next hundred. With the 
constant improvement of 
the campus facilities, and 
the continued improve- 
ment in the student body, 
there is so much that can 
be accomplished here. So, 
onward we move into the 
1990's and beyond . . . 

The main research for 
this text was completed by 
Dr. Ross Henderson 

Moore and compiled into 
print by Janie Eubanks. 
Dr. Moore gave to the 
Millsaps Community in 
every honorable way. He 
served as chairman of the 
History Department from 
1930 to 1970, was the first 
Distinguished Professor, 
and was instrumental in 
helping Millsaps to 
achieve a Phi Beta Kappa 
chapter. Dr. Moore will be 
sadly missed by his stu- 
dents, colleagues, and 
those that came into con- 
tact with him.

Friday Forum 

The students, faculty, and staff of 
Millsaps College and the members of 
the Jackson community are fortunate 
to have a college dedicated in provid- 
ing a spectrum of cultural and intellec- 
tual programs. One of these well estab- 
lished traditions is the Friday Forum, 
a weekly enrichment series with topics 
ranging from Christian ethics to sci- 
ence education, from women studies to 
performing art, and from politics to 
even an audience participation com- 
edy show. The presentations are fund- 
ed and planned by the Public Events 
Committee comprised by a diligent 
group of students and faculty mem- 
bers who work semesters in advance to 
include the best speakers and topics for 
discussion. Some of this year's twenty- 
five programs and presenters included 
the following: 

"Ballet: A Need for Rediscovery" with 
David Keary, dancer, choreo- 

grapher, teacher. 

"We Can Make You Laugh" Comedy 
Game Show with Scott Howard, 
Russ Smith, and Kathy Sorbo of 
Kramer/Magnan Productions.

and Hugo Awards winner, sci- 
ence fiction writer, anthlogist, 
critic and teacher. 

"Seeing the Natural World in a Dif- 
ferent Way: Christian Ethics 
Looks at Genetic Interventions" 
with Harmon Smith, Ph.D.. Pro- 

fessor of Moral Theology and 
Professor of Community and

After each presentation there is a 
question and answer time where indi- 
viduals can get specific topics ad- 
dressed for a deeper understanding of 
the subject.

Arts & Lecture 

"Lagniappe" — a Cajun expression for some- 
thing extra — is just what the Millsaps Arts and 
Lecture Series offers. The 22nd season of the Se- 
ries featured stimulating programs on theatre arts, 
music, politics, and literature. 

Designed to bring an added cultural dimension 
to the Jackson community, the Millsaps Arts and 
Lecture Series opened its season with a look at the 
film industry and its impact on Mississippi, both 
culturally and economically. Executive producers 
Fred Berner of "Miss Firecracker" and Frederick 
Zollo of "Mississippi Burning" discussed their 
films with Mississippi novelist and screenwriter 
Willie Morris, Mississipi's Director of Economic 
Development J. Mac Holladay, and Director of 
Tourism for Mississippi John Horhn. The panel 
addressed the effects of the film industry on Mis- 
sissippi's image and economy. 

Two concerts, presented by opera singer Paula 
Page of Frankfurt, Germany, and the piano quar- 
tet Amabile were also on the 1989-90 season 
schedule. Mississippi-born Paula Page is a 1964 
graduate of Millsaps Clllege. She is a leading 
member of the Frankfurt Opera and a regular 
guest in leading opera houses in Europe. Ms. Page 
was recently appointed professor of voice at the 
State Music Conservatory in Frankfurt, Wolfgang 
Goethe University. The Amabile Piano Quartet 
has captivated audiences with the great piano 
quartets of Mozart and Beethoven, Brahms, Dvo- 
rak and Schumann, plus a wealth of other compos- 
ers. The quartet brings their unique skills together 
in a compelling performance of chamber music full 
of vibrant personality and excitement in the art. 

Also in the lecture series was an evening with 
Georgia physician/author Ferrol Sams and noted 
American historian C. Vann Woodward. Dr. Fer- 
rol Sams took up writing at the age of 58 and has 
won acclaim from critics and a growing number of 
readers. His first novel. Run With the Horseman, 
and its sequel. The Whisper of the River, are about 
growing up in the rural south and going off to the 
city for college. C. Vann Woodward, a native of 
Arkansas, is the dominant scholar in the field of 
Southern history. He fuses scholarship, con- 
science, and social resonsibility when focusing on 
the relevance of the Southern experience for all 
Americans and the role of all historians in society. 

This series of programs indeed provided Mill- 
saps College and the Jackson community that ex- 
tra something along the lines of cultural develop- 
ment and advancement.

Homecoming was held on the weekend of Oc- 
tober 12- 14, 1989. It was a very fun filled and 
exciting time for students at Millsaps. 

The festivities began on Thursday with Tap 
Day and later that night with the opening night 
of the Millsaps Players first production of the 
year, "Brigadoon." Festivities continued 
through Friday with a picnic in the bowl and a 
pep rally. 'The Next Best Thang' was held in the 
bowl and included a twister contest and pie 
throwing. Later the Kappa Alpha's held a bas- 
ketball tournament to raise money for Muscular 
Dystrophy. That evening the Millsaps A&L Se- 
ries presented Paula Page in concert, and later 
the band Indian Road performed. 

On Saturday the Library held their annual 
book sale, floats were presented with Kappa 
Delta taking first place. The Football game be- 
gan at 1:30 with Millsaps playing the Lambuth 
Eagles and unfortunately losing the game 20- 1 4. 
During the halftime show Cherie Walker was 
chosen as Homecoming Queen. Despite the 
team's loss the party at Hal & Mai's was a 
rousing success with Mason Ruffner providing

Voluntary Service 

Millsaps students have often been in the ranks of social change. 
This year, the theme "A Century of Vision" stresses the even 
greater need for social awareness and the collective will of indi- 
viduals to make the changes that are necessary for improving the 
standards of living in modern America. Students have not only 
participated in marches, movements, and organizations that have 
been created to initiate those changes, but have also helped people 
on the immediate level of the "here and now." 

Volunteers from Millsaps have worked with the homeless and 
those who live in such dire financial straights that they cannot 
feed their families, and also helping out at Jackson's Community 
Stewpot — learning firsthand that all is not well in the land of 
milk and honey. Many students have become involved with Habi- 
tat for Humanity, striving to build homes for the needy and have 
also put a great many hours in the refurbishing/remodeling of 
Sandifer House, a local AIDS hospice. Thanks to them, the house 
is habitable, more comfortable, and nearly complete. 

The health and welfare of others can be further exemplified in 
the services performed by students in medical facilities and 
schools. Faculties and staffs were relieved of simple tasks, en- 
abled by the volunteers to focus their attentions where needed 

In celebration of the College's Centennial Year, the Millsaps 
community launched the Centennial Voluntary Service Project, 
an effort which has as its goal the contribution by students, 
faculty, and staff of 100,000 hours of voluntary service to the 
Jackson area and its larger community. Recognizing that for the 
past 100 years this college has been the recipient of support and 
interest from many people in Jackson, MS, and around the na- 
tion, the Centennial Voluntary Service Project offers the oppor- 
tunity to say "Thank You" to those who have supported us so 
faithfully by providing assistance to those in need. 

We hope those seeing this project in operation in the communi- 
ty will recognize our commitment to encouraging members of the 
Millsaps community to think of their lives as service to the human 
family, the community beyond the Millsaps Campus. 

The biggest project undertaken by the CVSP is the Bailey 
Magnet School mentor program. Some years ago, Millsaps 
adopted Bailey Magnet and we are hoping to strenthen the rela- 
tionship between Millsaps and Bailey through our Voluntary 

Other voluntary work has been done for: Multiple Sclerosis 
Society, Junior League of Jackson, Junior Achievement of Jack- 
son, Sims House, Sandifer House, University Medical Center, 
Girl Scout, United Methodist Church, MS Blood Service, and 
Kidney Foundation. 

This program began January 1, 1990 and will close May 31, 
1991. It is our aim to reach our goal of 1 00,000 hours of commu- 
nity service and more by May 31, 1991. The Centennial Volun- 
tary Service Project encourages the development of leaders and 
givers in the Millsaps community, including its alumni, faculty 
and staff who are committed to helping those in need.

Centennial Gala 

As part of the Centennial celebration, Millsaps Col- 
lege held its Centennial Gala on Thursday, February 
22, 1990. This multi-media production orchestrated by 
Ms. Jean Luckett and her production crew presented 
Millsaps' inception and history. It utilized slides, vid- 
eos, taped recordings of pertinent music, and live per- 
formances by Millsaps students, faculty, staff, admin- 
strators, and alumni. 

The evening began with the announcement of the 
recipient of the Distinguished Professor Award. This 
year the award was given to two professors. Dr. Alan 
Scarboro and Dr. Judith Page for their contributions 
inside and outside of the classroom. 

Then the visual show began. Acting as Master of 
Ceremonies was Mr. Bill Croswell. What a treat — the 
past one hundred years of Millsaps College presented 
before us in an entertaining as well as informative show. 
Performances throughout the evening included: the 
Troubadours, Lee Lofton, Dr. Jonathan Sweat, a dance 
routine by Chrissy Coker and David Keary, a medley 
featuring fraternity and sorority songs, and John Jaba- 
ley as Willie Loughman. The slide and video tape aspect 
of the evening provided glimpses of the history and 
development of Millsaps as an educational institution. 

Who would have guessed that faculty members acted 
in some of the plays or that football was banned on 
campus? Who would have ever believed that not only 
were there strict curfew rules but also restrictions on 
where they could go once given permission to leave? 

Millsaps College has been shaped by many things 
and by many people and in return many lives and events 
were shaped by the campus community. The Centen- 
nial Gala certainly presented a wonderful docuentary of 
the history of our school and its community of people.

The Challenge 


llJBf IV^H 

An annual event on the campus of Millsaps 
College is the student symposium, a forum 
that raises poignant questions about our cam- 
pus community and its stand on major world 
issues. This year was no exception. The 1990 
student symposium was sponsored by the 
campus' chapter of Habitat for Humanity 
and addressed "The Environment: The Chal- 
lenge of the Future.'' The symposium present- 
ed some of the major problems in our environ- 
ment and discussed what we as Millsaps stu- 
dents and as concerned citizens of this world 
could do to help alleviate those problems. 

Some of the issues discussed were the ozone 
layer, the "greenhouse effect," and the 
growth of waste production and pollution. 
Also addressed were the increasing effects of 
technology. Another topic for discussion was 
the use of nuclear power vs. fossil fuels. 

During the first evening of the symposium. 
Dr. Hugh Kaufman, on the problem of waste 
management, suggested that the government 
could reduce wasteby 1 6% by putting five cent 
deposits on bottles and cans and strongly en- 
courage paper recycling. Commoner further 
sugested that certain technological advance- 
ments, such as plastics, could be limited or 
even phased out and a return to natural pro- 
ducts, like paper and wood, established. 

Another important facet of the environ- 
mental issue is the misrepresentation of the 
problems by the media and certain lobby 
groups. Each speaker pointed out that the is- 
sues most familiar to the general public were 
actually the lesser in magnitude than those 
problems that go unnoticed. 

Overall the days of February 13-14, 1990 
were very successful in raising the conscious- 
ness of our students and teaching them that 
cooperation is a key to environmental protec-

Talent Show 

The third annual Millsaps' Talent Show 
was a lively part of Major Madness week- 
end. Participation in the show was open to 
all members of the Millsaps community. 
There were singing groups and solos, dance 
performances and comedy acts, and several 
bands. For the second time, Mark Mays 
and Jay Ciaccio served as masters of cere- 

While most of the performances solicited 
approval by the audience, only the top four 
acts could be recognized for a prize. Taking 
honorable mention for their flair as body 
builders extra-ordinary was "Some Kind of 
Mules." Third place went to Paul Case and 
Pancho singing an original composition 
"Sweetest Thing." Lee Lofton and his su- 
perb voice took second place with "Maria" 
and "Wind Beneath My Wings." The cov- 
eted first place went to "Complete Dark- 
ness," an energetic modern dance troupe 
starring Rachel Furner, Malen Jones, 
Shannon Williams, Todd Cassetty, and 
Danny Sanders. 

Other acts included Mariya de la Cruz, 
who performed two Hawaiian dances to 
"Little Grass Shack" and "Hawaiian War 
Chant," the Black Student Association 
singing "That's What Friends Are For," 
and Pam Bundy performing "People 
Alone," a ballet solo. These are only a few 
of the many talented acts of the night.

Major Madness majiqi^ mABmn. 

A weekend full of fun and games . . . that's Major 
Madness weekend here at Millsaps and this year was 
no exception. Indeed, April 1 9-2 1 , 1 990 was a week- 
end for the incoming freshmen to get a little taste of 
the Millsaps life and they got a mouthful. 

Beginning with music in the bowl by the "Bar- 
bers," an all Millsaps talent show, and the "Rocky 
Horror Picture Show," things got off to a roaring 
start. The festivities continued with lunch in the bowl 
and music by "Kaya and the Welders" on the 20th, 
followed by a concert that night by the Millsaps 
Troubadours, and bands from Millsaps: Jupiter Hol- 
low and Indian Road. On the 21st the campus sorori- 
ties held teas at their lodges. The games began mid- 
morning on the Galloway Lawn with fraternities, so- 
rorities and others competing in volleyball and tug- 
of-war just to name a few. A buffet style lunch was 
offered under a tent for those made hungry partici- 
pating in the games and those who got hungry just 
watching. That night saw the end of the weekend 
events with a Greek Step Show and a concert by 
Zachary Richard at Hal and Mai's.

The Hasty Heart 

The Millsaps Players, during the 
summer session of 1989, produced this 
comedy-drama by John Patrick. This 
is the story of a wounded Scottish sol- 
dier. It tells the story of the last few 
weeks of his life which he spends in the 
convalescent ward of an Oriental hos- 
pital. These last weeks are dramatical- 
ly changed by the sympathetic treat- 
ment his fellow patients and soldiers 
try to give him and his stubborn, pride- 
ful rejection of their treatment. The 
soldier's extreme independent spirit al- 
most destroys the good intentions of 
those around him who want to make 
him happy. After falling in love with 
his nurse, he learns why everyone is 
treating him so kindly and most impor- 
tantly, he learns the great lesson of lov- 
ing thy neighbor as thyself. This pro- 
duction was wonderfully executed and 
taught a lesson in life and love.

The Hasty Heart 45 


The first dramatic production of the 
school year was the musical Brigadoon. 
It ran from October 12th- 15th. The play 
was under the direction of Lance Goss, 
the musical direction of Dr. Timothy 
Coker, the sets by Brent Lefavor, and the 
choreography by David Keary, a Mill- 
saps student. 

The play was about two lost American 
hunters in Scotland, who stumble upon a 
quaint little village hidden in the midst. 
As the play progresses the two men real- 
ize that something is amiss in the village 
because it seems to be 'caught in time.' A 
conflict ensues when one of the hunters 
falls in love with a young girl in the vil- 
lage. He is forced to decide whether to 
leave her or not, as this magical village 
will disappear for the next one hundred 
years when morning arrives. 

The part of Tommy, the hunter in love, 
was played by Paul Burgess and his 
young love Fiona by Missy Crane. The 
supporting roles were David Brown as 
Jeff, his friend, Chrissy Cocker as 
Fiona's sister, Lynn Geiger as Meg, and 
John Jabaley as Mr. Lundir. 

This play had the larger cast ever used 
in a production at Millsaps and it had 
record-breaking nights for ticket sales.

Death of A Salesman 

Arthur Miller's tale of an old salesman 
and how he is slowly fading into the 
woodwork of society was presented by 
the Millsaps Players in their sixty sixth- 
season on November 16-18, 1989 at the 
Christian Center Auditorium. 

The main theme of this play centers 
around Willy Loman, an aging salesman. 
Even though at one time he was one of 
the best salesmen around time has taken 
its toll and he is loosing his ability to 
'make the sale'. He is prone to unreason- 
able bouts of anger and it seems difficult 
to care for this man, although in the end 
he gains the audience's sympathy. A sec- 
ond plot revolves around Willy's relation- 
ship with his eldest son Biff and the con- 
flict that always existed between them. 

The Loman family was wonderfully 
portrayed by John Jabaley as Willy Lo- 
man, the aging salesman; Cindy Foster 
as his wife, Linda; and Ken Thompson 
and Seth Holliday as their sons Hap and 
Biff. As their next door neighbors were 
David Laird as Bernard and Adam Pol- 
lock as his father Charley. Others in the 
cast included Shelly Cornell as the wom- 
an, Paul Burgess as Uncle Ben, Sammy 
Morris as Howard Wagner, Juliet Gale 
as Jenny, Dave Coats as Stanley, Erin 
Gardner as Miss Forsythe, and Elizabeth 
Reed as Letta. 

This play was voted Best Show Award 
at the Player's Banquet.

Death of A Salesman 49 

The Philadelphia Story 

This lighthearted comedy about the 
confusing love life of the wealthy and 
spoiled Tracy Lord was an excellent ad- 
dition to the Millsaps Player's season. It 
was done in the round, and attracted sell- 
out crowds through most of its perfor- 
mances during the weekend of March 1- 
4, 1990. 

Members of this award winning cast 
included Shelley Cornell as Tracy Lord, 
Shani Hedden as her mother Margaret, 
Everett McKinley as her father Seth, 
Caron Iden as her sister Dinah, Shawn 
McKenzie as her brother Sandy and 
Dave Coats as her Uncle Willie. Others 
in the cast were Becky Baker as Liz Im- 
brie, a reporter sent to cover the wedding 
of Tracy to George Kittridge, a young 
handsome businessman excellently 
played by Doug Mitchell, Sammy Mor- 
ris as Mike Conners, another reporter, 
and Paul Elmore as C.K. Dexter Haven, 
Tracy's ex-husband. Playing the servants 
were Reema Rafii and Vere Jehl. 

George Kittridge, Mike Connors, and 
ultimately C.K. Dexter Haven become 
involved in not a triangle but a quadran- 
gle of love as they all vie for Tracy's af- 
fections. Tracy has already divorced 
Dexter, although he still seems to love 
her, and is currently considering mar- 
riage to George. She would never have 
considered Mike, after all she's out of his 
league, but they somehow found them- 
selves attracted to each other. The plot 
gets very confusing and in the end Tracy 
ends up marrying Dexter once again. 

The cast and crew did an excellent job 
with every aspect of this production and 
should be well commended.

The Philadelphia Story 51 

Les Liaisons Dangereuses 

The Millsaps Players, for their sixty- 
sixth season's closing show, chose the 
very successful broadway and broadway- 
based movie version of "Les Liaisons 
Dangereuses,' better known as Danger- 
ous Liaisons. This extremely elaborate 
and wonderfully exciting production was 
smoothly executed by the Players under 
the direction of Lance Goss and the tech- 
nical direction of Brent LeFavor. 

The story is one of deception, betrayal, 
and most surprisingly love. The story of 
the Marquise de Merteuil and her med- 
dling in the lives of those around her, 
including the Vicomte de Valmot and 
Madame de Tourvel is wonderfully fun- 
ny and tragic. 

The cast included such great perform- 
ers as Elizabeth Reed as the ever wicked 
Marquise de Marteuil; Doug Mitchell as 
Vicomte de Valmont, the tragic hero; 
Shelley Cornell as Madame de Tourvel 
one victim of the insidious plot: Laela 
Garham as Cecile Volanges, an innocent 
girl seduced by Valmont; her mother 
Madame de Volanges, played by Eliza- 
beth Hagood; Dancery, Cecile's love 
played by Vere Jehl; Azolan, Valmont's 
valet played by Clif Jefferies; Shannon 
O'Shields as Madame de Rosemonde, 
Valmont's aunt and Madame de Tour- 
vel's confident; an Catherine D'Armond 
as Emilie, a courtesan. The servants were 
played by Sammy Morris as Major- 
Domo, Niles Hooper, John Lobo, Seth 
Fox, and Phyllis Bardoe.

A sister's a sister forever, 

A bond that diminishes never, 
A friend who is Icindly and caring, 

A sibling God chooses for sharing. 

Few ties are as deep and profound 
And with so much affection abound. 

Though some thoughts are seldom expressed, 
Love endures and survives every test. 

Of the constants that rest in the heart, 

A sister's a primary part. 
She'll always be there when you need her — 

You listen, you value, you heed her.

This year's football season could be labelled as a year of equals. 
Not only were the Majors 4-4-1 for the season, but they were also 
2-2 in College Athletic Conference play, and 7 of their 9 games 
were close games between equal foes. All in all, the Majors made a 
fine showing for first year head coach Tommy Ranager and first 
year assistant coach Paul Dancsisin. 

The Majors started the season on a long trip to Terre Haute, 
Indiana, to take on Rose Hulman Institute of Technology. The 
Majors and the Engineers fought to a 7-7 tie. The Majors were led 
by the running of Terrence "Truck" Turner. They returned to the 
road the following week to take on Division I rated Davidson 
College, in Davidson, North Carolina. The Majors suffered their 
first loss by a score of 15-0. The next week bought Sewanee into 
Jackson for the first home game of the season. The Majors earned 
their first win by dominating the Tigers 21-3. They were led by the 
arm of Rusty Davis and the running of Brian Campbell, and racked 
up 346 total yards on the day. The majors moved to 2-1-1 the 
following week when they beat Trinity University in San Antonio, 
Texas. The Majors cruised to a 31-6 victory, led by the running of 
Turner, the pass receiving of Parke Pepper, and a fine effort by the 
entire defense. This victory made the majors 2-0 in the CAC. 

The Majors won their third straight game the next week in an 
exciting 7-6 home victory over Emory & Henry College, of Emory, 
Virginia. The Majors' defense was once again extremely rigid, 
allowing the Wasp's — 36 yards rushing, and only 79 total yards on 
the day. The Majors slid back to an even record in the next few 
weeks with back to back heart breaking losses to CAC champion 
Centre College, 16-15, in Danville, Kentucky, and Lambuth Col- 
lege, 20-14 in the 1989 Homecoming game. Despite these losses 
Campbell had two superb weeks of running, gaining 81 yards and 
129 yards, in the respective games. The Majors returned to their 
winning ways in Barbourville, Kentucky, the next week. They 
defeated Union College 22-21 in yet another tight game. The 
Majors won the game on a 60 yard touchdown pass from Davis to 
Jerry Leonard. The final game of the season pitted our Majors 
against arch rival Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. The 
Lynx narrowly defeated the Majors with 15 seconds left in the 
game, with a 35 yard field goal. The final score was 10-7. 

From most indications, the Majors had a very successful season. 
Their defensive squad ranked fourth in the nation in rushing de- 
fense, allowing only 67.7 yards per game. The offense was also a 
quality unit. The running game was led by Campbell and Turner, 
both gaining over 600 total yards. The passing game showcased the 
pasing of Davis, who averaged 8 1 yards passing per game, and the 
receiving of Leonard, Pepper, and Turner. The defense was led by 
several dominating members. For the second straight year, line- 
backer Trace McRaney led the team in tackles. Sean Brewer was a 
strong presence in the middle, leading the team in quarterback 
sacks, as well as being the team's second leading tackier. Flint 
Minshew, John Williams, Edward Benson, Bert Amison, and Chad 
Marks also contributed greatly to the team's defensive success. 

The 1989 Majors, in this their first year of conference participa- 
tion, were honored to have four of their members named to the All 
CAC Football team. These members were tight end Jerry Leonard, 
running back Terrance Turner, defensive lineman Sean Brewer, 
and defensive back Chad Marks. There were also eight Majors on 
the CAC honorable Mention Team; Steve Marinelli, Parke Pep- 
per, Brian Campbell, Rusty Davis, Bert Amison, Trace McRaney, 
John Williams, and Edward Benson. The Majors led the CAC in 
total defense, as well as rushing defense. 

The Majors will surely miss the performance of several fine 
seniors of f of the 1 989 squad. They will lose Benson, Davis, Marks, 
Stace McRaney, Leonard, and Amison. All these men have made 
great contributions to Millsaps football, and they should be proud 
of their accomplishments.

The 1989 Men's Varsity Soccer Team began with a 5-1 win 
over Hinds, after which the Majors went to San Antonio, Texas 
to battle Trinity University. The Majors came out with a 1-1 
draw against a team they had never defeated before. The season 
continued optimistically and the Majors' record was 3-0-3 when 
the rain came. The majors then went 1-8 but entered the CAC 
Tournament seeded first in their bracket, paired against Centre 
College. With great play from forwards Bruce Unangst and 
Tim Bruni, and solid help in the midfield from Mickey Brown 
and Ken Kellum, the Majors prevailed 2-0, giving goalie Joseph 
Lee his first shut out, but more importantly, giving the team a 
berth in the final. Despite excellent defensive play from Tony 
Melvin, the Majors lost 4-0 in the final to a superior Sewanee 
team. Behind the leadership of team captains Tony Melvin and 
Ken Kellum, the Majors had a much improved season. 

With the second place finish in the conference being the high 
light of the season, the Majors finished well and are very opti- 
mistic about next season. Scott Maddox, Mickey Brown, and 
Tony Melvin were named to the all conference team. With a 
good spring training, recruiting year, and pre season, the Majors 
should be in great form for next year's season, which once again 
will culminate in the CAC Tournament.

The 1989 Millsaps women's soccer team 
rebounded from their worst season ever to 
post an 8 win — 6 loss record. The Majors 
were vastly improved in all areas of the 
game. Significant wins for the year were 
victories over arch-rival Rhodes College (4- 
1, 5-1), Tulane University (2-1, 7-4), and 
LaGrange College (5-0). The Majors were 
quite competitive even in defeat, with 4 of 
the 6 losses being one goal deficits. The 
most heart breaking march of the season 
was a 2-1 loss at home to nationally ranked 
Emory Univerisy. 

Senior leadership was provided by Erika 
Rudgers, Janet Bass, Erin Clark, and two 
four year starters, Kim Tadlock, and Meme 
Soho. Leading scorer for the season was 
junior Anna Harvel with 10 goals and 7 
assists for a total of 27 points. Senior Meme 
Soho was second with 10 goals and 5 assists 
and freshman Melissa Storm third with 6 
goals. Meme Soho finished her career with 
virtually every match, season, and career 
record in hand. Her career stats are — 56 
goals, 23 assists, for a total of 135 points. 
Rookie goal keeper Katie Pascal improved 
dramatically during the season to become a 
defensive force. The young Majors started 
three freshmen and four sophomores and 
look to be building for the future.

The 1989-1990 Majors, new members of 
the College Athletic Conference, had a 
fairly good season. Although their 12-13 
record was one game shy of the .500 mark, 
they were a much better team than the re- 
cord shows. The team played hard, but 
didn't seem to come through in the clutch 
moments of the games. 

The Majors will lose three members from 
this year's team: David Chancellor, Rod 
Nixon, and Scott Carter. Of the three, 
Chancellor was the only regular starter. He 
led the team in scoring. He was also one of 
the best rebounders and free throw shooters 
on the team. During the last home game, 
Chancellor was presented a basketball for 
scoring over 1,000 points in his career at 

Nixon didn't start but he provided the 
team with quality minutes. Carter missed 
the majority of the season with a nagging 
knee injury, and therefore wasn't able to 
contribute as much as he usually would 

The players who returned from last 
year's team played as well as they were 
expected to, but it was the new recruits who 
stood out the most. Dan Campbell, a fresh- 
man from Atlanta, Georgia, stepped in and 
took the starting position of point guard. 
The Majors got consistent play at center 
position from Doug Wilson, a 6'9" sopho- 
more from Hinds. Coming off the bench for 
the Majors were freshmen Chris Copass 
and Mark Dean, both of whom put in qual- 
ity minutes. Both players improved a great 
deal over the course of the season, and were 
factors in every game. If these guys contin- 
ue to play as well as they have, the Majors 
will be solid competition for every team that 
they play next season. 

At the conclusion of the season Torrance 
Shelton was named to the All College Ath- 
letic Conference team.

The road to the 1989-90 Lady Majors trav- 
elled this season had its share of ups and 
downs. The Lady Majors were hoping to con- 
tinue their winning streak from last season. 
Under the direction of the new coach, Sandra 
Rushing, and the inspiration of lone senior, 
Erin Clark, the Lady Majors were able to have 
a winning season. The Lady Majors, who 
started eleven members, had to overcome 
many obstacles throughout the season. 

The Lady Majors lost Felicia Overstreet for 
the entire season due to a knee injury that 
required surgery. They were also without the 
services of freshman Angela Cockerham for 
the first part of the season, also due to an 
injury that required surgery. In the second 
half of the season, they lost the services of 
junior Elizabeth Hearn and freshman Steph- 
anie Denly. Despite these losses, the Lady Ma- 
jors carried on with hard work and dedication. 

The Lady Majors' road trips were always 
filled with excitement and unexpected events. 
To ease the boredom of long road trips, fresh- 
man Elizabeth Black tuaght various songs to 
the rest of the team, including the coaches. 
There wasn't a trip that went by in which the 
team didn't laugh. 

On the court, the Lady Majors were led by 
senior Erin Clark, who showed great leader- 
ship throughout the season. She possesses good 
knowledge of the game and was a smart floor 
player. She was ranked in the top 20 for lead- 
ing scorers in Division III for the entire season. 
Erin will be missed greatly. Junior Jamie 
Fowler came on strongly towards the end of 
the season and made more progress than any 
other player on the team throughout the 
course of the season. 

The Lady Majors' season was a successful 
one despite all the obstacles. They went into 
the Christmas break with a record of 4-5, of 
which no one was proud of. However, after the 
break, the Lady Majors were able to recoup, 
and went on to win 9 and lose 4. They im- 
proved with each game, especially the fresh- 
men. Their season ended with three victories 
over Trinity, Stillman, and Spring Hill. The 
final record for the season was 13-9.

After struggling through a very tough 
early season schedule that included five top 
ranked NAIA or NCAA Division III teams 
in the first seven matches, the Millsaps Col- 
lege men's tennis team closed out its season 
by capturing third place at the tournament 
at Danville, KY. This was the tennis teams 
first conference competition since 1954. 

The CAC tournament was the highlight 
of a 4-15 season. At the tournament fresh- 
man Josh Priola and Greg Cronin took sec- 
ond in their respective flights, while sopho- 
more Trey Ourso took third in his. Cronin 
and senior captain Jay Ciaccio won second 
place in the #1 doubles. Millsaps. at the 
close of the season, was ranked fifth in the 
fourteen team NCAA Division III South 

At the awards banquet sophomore Ken 
Thompson (7-8) was awarded the Most Im- 
proved Player award. With such strong 
players returning next season the Majors 
hope to improve upon their record and look 
forward to a better season.

The 1989-1 990 women's tennis season was one of learn- 
ing and adjusting for the Lady Majors. With a young team 
the Lady Majors competed against schools such as Emory 
and Sewanee, both of which are ranked in the division's 
Top Ten. Under the coaching of Coach Montgomery and 
Anne Culpepper, a former Millsaps graduate, the team 
overlooked this obstacle to accomplish significant im- 
provement. There was some difficulty with injuries during 
the season, but the Lady Majors managed to adjust and 
give it 1 10%. The season ended with a trip to the South 
Regionals which were held at Sewanee. Rain and snow 
proved to be a hindrance, but the Lady Majors neverthe- 
less had their best performance of the season. With most 
of the players returning next year, the Lady Majors will 
continue to develop better skills and are looking forward to 
a successful season.

The 1 990 Majors baseball team did more 
than prove that this program is a fast grow- 
ing success, they also proved that they are 
an immediate power in the CAC. In our 
first year of membership in the CAC, the 
Majors claimed the first CAC title for Mill- 
saps College. 

This year's team had many exciting play- 
ers who played many great games. The Ma- 
jors' season record settled at 19-18, but the 
team finished with a flurry, winning 4 of 5 
games at the CAC tournament. They 
played great baseball throughout the sea- 
son, the season began when the Majors won 

2 of 3 games from Sewanee. The highlight 
of the series was a 22-9 Majors' victory. 
Junior pitcher Andrew Meyers pitched a 
near no-hitter in a 10-1 victory against 
Spring Hill College. The Majors also had a 

3 game sweep of arch-rival Rhodes. During 
the series, Freshman pithcer Danny 
Meyers, 1990's outstanding Pitcher, im- 
proved his record to 3-0. A double-header 
sweep over Aurora University improved the 
season record to 12-6. Two days later, the 
Majors scored a big 19-2 victory over cross- 
street rival Belhaven College. In the game, 
the majors had their greatest offensive ex- 
plosion of the season, collecting 20 hits in 
just 39 at bats. Later in the season, the 
Majors took 2 of 3 games from Sewanee to 
run their CAC record to 7-2. The Majors 
success again peaked at the season ending 
tournament. After losing a tough 11-6 
game to Sewanee, the Majors went on an 
incredible winning streak. During the four 
straight victories, the Majors defeated 
Rhodes 15-3, Fisk 23-3, tournament host 
Centre 8-7, and Trinity 15-12 in the cham- 
pionship game. The Majors finished the 
season with an 11-5 CAC record, and 17-9 
against Division III opponents. 

The Majors were led by many outstand- 
ing players. The team raised their batting 
average nearly 60 points from 1989 finish- 
ing at .318. Offensively, they were led by 
sophomore center fielder, 1990 Batting 
Champion, Murray Meadows; senior first 
baseman, 1990 Best Offensive Player, 
Drew Manning; and Junior shortstop/ 
pitcher, 1990 MVP, Kelby Gilmer. The 
team sported a .919 defensive fielding aver- 
age led by 1990's Gold Glove Winners: 
Tony Melvin, Rod Ratliff, Eric Hamer, and 
Joe Welsh.

The 1989-90 golf team was very young 
and inexperienced. The team is mainly 
comprised of sophomores and freshman 
with no seniors on the squad. This past sea- 
son was a good learning experience for the 

The team competed in three matches and 
finished with a record of 2-1. They played 
in the Washington University Invitational 
in St. Louis where they placed seventh. At 
the College Athletic Conference tourna- 
ment the team finished fourth, missing 
third place by only one stroke. 

On the individual level Brad Ray was 
elected to the All-Conference Team after 
finishing fourth overall in the tournament 
and leading by two strokes after the first 
day. Brad was also given the Most Out- 
standing Golfer award at the Sports Ban- 
quet. Also at the banquet Todd Sutherland 
was voted the most improved and Trip 
Slappey was the most spirited. 

With everyone on this years team return- 
ing next year the golf team is looking to 
continue improving and feels that they can 
compete successfully in the conference next

1989-90 brought about the second year 
of existence of the Millsaps men's cross 
country team. Under the excellent guid- 
ance and supervision of coach Mary Ann 
Edge and manager/trainer Andy Rambo, 
the team continued to grow and excel. Ken 
Williams and Eric Schrock returned from 
last year's fledgling team and were joined 
by a group of very promising new faces that 
include Lacy Sturdivant, Jim Carpenter, 
freshman John Neff, Jay Tull, and stan- 
dout senior transfer Todd "Wildman" 
Munch. Todd was the captain and anchor 
of the men's team, and had an outstanding 
year. Often, he beat many runners who 
were on scholarships at much larger Divi- 
sion I schools. At the CAC tournament at 
Rhodes, Todd finished ninth in the race to 
become Millsaps' first ever all-conference 

The women's team this year consisted of 
Becky Baker, Becky Brumberger, Chris- 
tine Bakeis, Myrtle Hoover, Mary Beth 
Reilly, Blair Richards and Amy Tate. They 
participated in many events including the 
St. Richard's 5K, the Wells Methodist 
Church 5K, and the Governor's Cup. Team 
members were constantly "prodded on" by 
the constant reassurances of Blair "gung- 
ho" Richards and were marvelled by Becky 
Brumberger's and Becky Baker's never 
ending ability to keep chattering as they 
ran. With future increases in the Cross 
Country budget for next year the team 
looks to be growing and should fare well in 
the future.

Cheerleading ... a sport that con- 
tinues throughout the whole year. It 
begins the second the cheerleaders 
are selected and doesn't end until the 
last basketball game of the season. A 
smile is necessary whether we are 
winning or losing, whether it's sunny 
or raining, or whether or not you've 
got the energy to continue. The cheers 
and stunts displayed on the sideline 
are the result of hours of hard work 
and practice. 

The Football cheerleading squad 
consisted of Ellen Deshotels and Wil- 
liam Henderson who served as co- 
captains, Angie Cunningham, Rob- 
bie Everett, Jessica Deffes, Jim Me- 
gehee, Jerae Rice, Chandler Tipton, 
Melinda Wiggins, and Morris Wilt- 

This Football season included trav- 
elling to such places as Indiana, 
North Carolina, and Tennessee. Dur- 
ing all of the practices the cheer- 
eaders made up new cheers and 
chants such as Robbie & Jim's mad 
dog chant and Morris's new version of 
the chair sit. 

The basketball cheerleaders were 
Ellen Deshotels, Captain, Angie Cun- 
ningham, Shawn Gentry, Jessica 
Deffes, Alan Lange, Jim Megehee, 
Jessica Pugh, Chandler Tipton, Me- 
linda Wiggins, and Morris Wiltshire. 
These cheerleaders helped to cheer 
the team to a great season.

Dr. Bishop loves teaching at Millsaps. To him, Millsaps is home 
because he attended Millsaps during his undergraduate years. 
Outside of teaching Dr. Bishop is involved in Chemistry re- 
search as well as with the ongoing development of the Millsaps 
computer program. He worked along with Dr. Shive and others 
to put together Millsaps' computer system from the foundation 

When asked about any changes he sees in students, he regret- 
fully reports that he finds that students are coming in with 
poorer mathematical and reasoning skills than students of ten 
years ago. Students seem more comfortable with the concrete 
thinking and less comfortable with abstract thought. 

When not instructing his students at Millsaps, Dr. Bishop 
enjoys collecting guns, hunting, and fishing. He also is an avid 
Civil War historian. He uses his Civil War memorabilia in a 
presentation he often makes to one of Dr. Sallis' history classes. 

When asked to sum up his favorite aspect about Millsaps in 
one word. Dr. Bishop said, "Atmosphere, the small school atmo- 
sphere." He prefers being able to interact with students on a 
one-to-one basis than teaching to a mass, as often occurs at large

Graduation 1990 

It seems not long ago we entered 
Millsaps as curious freshmen, 
scared by the very thought of college 
and what it might bring. Now, four 
years later, five in some cases, we 
depart this institution that has in a 
way, become a part of each of us. 
Most of us arrived on a hot August 
afternoon, tried to unpack quickly, 
then get rid of our parents because it 
seemed impossible to make new 
friends with them around. About 
halfway through that first semester 
it seemed we would be at Millsaps 
forever. But, the time soon passed 
like the blink of an eye. 

The day we longed for arrived 
Saturday, May 12, 1990. Anticipa- 

tion of this day builds inside each 
senior most of the way through the 
spring semester but reaches its 
height soon after 'comps' are com- 
pleted. Then, it seems as though we 
can no longer wait — we must gra- 

That morning turned out to be a 
cloudy one, and Commencement ex- 
ercises were moved into the gymna- 
sium for fear of rain. With nervous 
students gathering off to the side, 
the gym was quickly filled with 
friends, parents, and relatives of the 
graduates. Although it was standing 
room only, no one seemed to mind. 
The ceremony included the Com- 
mencement Address delivered by 

Robert Mosbacher, Secretary of 
Commerce of the United States; 
awarding honorary degrees to Char- 
lotte Capers, Thalia Mara, Robert 
Mosbacher, George Pickett, and 
Richard Truly; awarding of Emeri- 
tus title to Howard Bavender and 
John Guest; and of course the 
awarding of diplomas to the gradu- 

After the diploma was received 
and the alumni were seated the 
'weight' just seemed to have been 
lifted. Most found it difficult to sup- 
press a smile at this point, since they 
had just passed the biggest test at 
Millsaps — they had survived and

To my fellow students, 

Through the past 215 pages I have tried to present to 
you a year in the life of Millsaps College. Unfortunately, it 
was not possible to include every event but I feel that this 
book provides a well balanced perspective. I would like to 
thank some people: if you appeared in any picture in this 
book thank you, that is the purpose of the Bobashela; 
thanks to Martha Lee and Cheri Gober for letting me 
bother you a zillion times; thank you Dean Fretwell for the 
trust you placed in me and my abilty, Kay Barksdale for 
all the help with pictures, Mr. J. C. Anthony (our repre- 
sentative) for keeping tabs on the situation and always 
managing to track me down no matter where I was, Dr. 
Ward for serving as advisor, and Chris Kochtitzky for 
printing pictures. To my staff thanks for a job well done, 
keep it up next year. 

Millsaps College means a great deal to me, it's hard to 
be a student here for four years and not feel something 
toward this school. I shall always remember the fond 
memories I have of my past four years here. To my friends, 
none of you saw me enough during our senior year, this 
book just ate up time, but it is you that I will always 
remember. Each of you (Mariya, Janet, Janie, Susan, 
Andrea, Christine, Kathy, and Gary) has touched my life 
in a very special way, and for that I am forever indebted 
(not monetarily) to you. Mariya and Gary especially, you 
two had to bear with, and tolerate me the most during this 
past year, how it is that you don't hate me is beyond 
cmoprehension, but thanks for everything. 

Thus ends all the work on the 1990 Bobashela. 
Goodbye Millsaps,
