Dedication: Dean John Christmas 



John Christmas, Vice-President for Enrollment and 
Student Services, is approaching retirement after 
having diligently served our school for nearly thirty 
years. 

Born in Laurel, MS, Christmas attended high school 
in Vicksburg, and went on to study at Louisiana State 
University. After his first year there, the Navy sent 
him to Millsaps to participate in an officer training 
program, after which he went to sea as a serviceman 
during World War II. 

Having grown fond of Millsaps, Christmas returned 
after the War to complete his studies, and left with a 
B.S. in Physics. After college, he returned to his home- 
town, where he worked as a teacher/coach, and later 
as the Director of Guidance for the Laurel School Sys- 
tem. 

In 1961, Christmas began his work at Millsaps, and 
in 1972 was named Director of Admissions. Over the 
years. Dean Christmas has worked closely with ad- 
ministration, faculty, and students, his love of people 





making it easy for him to foster new relationships. As 
Vice-President for Enrollment and Student Services, 
Christmas has worked closely with prospective stu- 
dents, helping to counsel them as they consider Mill- 
saps as their college-choice, and seeking to generate 
their interest in our school. 

As Dean Christmas looks back on his years at Mill- 
saps, he points to the relationships he has built with so 
many people as the most meaningful and enduring as- 
pect of his experience here. Christmas finds great sat- 
isfaction in being able to "watch what people have 
done with themselves" as they have lived and studied 
here as college students, graduated, and sent their 
own children back to be educated here. 

Although Dean Christmas looks forward to the lei- 
sure time that will come with his retirement, he antici- 
pates remaining involved with the college and its peo- 
ple as an alumnus.

Opening 



In compiling a yearbook, one usually be- 
comes burdened with the facts of "what hap- 
pened" over the past year. It becomes over- 
whelming for one to gather all events of any 
community into an organized manner cover- 
ing a year long period. Millsaps' "comfort- 
ably small" setting is no exception. 
Throughout the year, the Bobashela office 
has become filled with more and more pa- 
pers, memos, and flyers of "what has hap- 
pened" recently. Yet, it seems that the piles 
of pictures are what spark the special 
memories. The smiles, laughs, and puzzled 
looks of those that have sorted through the 
pictures have been especially stirring. For it 
is not the day to day facts that need to be 
printed. It is the emotions we have gained 
through our inspirations and relationships 
among the community that we especially 
want to savor. 

Community = Millsaps. We have all heard 
these words repeated together many times, 
probably beginning with the first time we 
set foot on the campus.

How do we define "our" community? Community's un- 
derlying meaning is that of unity. Yet, we look some- 
times at our differences, problems, and conflicts that 
our community struggles with and we ask where that 
unity is. A more in-depth definition of a community ex- 
plains that the interaction is what defines the group. 
Interaction involves all of the frustrations, conflicts, 
and later revisions that take place among its people. 
And that is what is singled out in this community — the 
people. 

As Millsaps' people (students and faculty), we take 
pride in our diversity, but more importantly, our unity. 
Senior Price Williams comments, "I am constantly 
amazed at the uniqueness of each person I meet here." 
However, she goes on to add that we all share one com- 
mon thread. "It seems to be a requirement for every 
Millsaps student to earnestly care about their neigh- 
bors." 

This special unity is something that many of Millsaps' 
graduates are still bragging about. Last year, being 
Millsaps' centennial year, we were all re-introduced 
(for some of us, simply introduced) to past traditions, 
facts, and . . . memories of the first one hundred years. 
Therefore, without many of us realizing it, this year 
brought a sincere challenge with it. Where do we go 
from here? This was to be a very good question. 



Opening 



It was the start of "the new centennial." What 
were we going to add to fill the bicentennial 
celebration? As usual, the Millsaps community, 
may be without realizing it, did a lot! 

When the residence halls opened August 26 
and more and more students began filling the 
campus and cafeteria, it quickly became obvi- 
ous that some major changes had occurred with- 
in our community. Millsaps had installed a new 
phone system with easier access for on-campus 
communication. This year's seniors, like Amy 
Ball, reflected on some of the changes they have 
seen during their four year stay here. Amy rec- 
ognizes "the" bell tower dedication and the Olin 
science building dedication as the more promi- 
nent events. Yet, our introduction to the potato/ 
pasta bar in the cafeteria was something every- 
one was talking about. Another physical change 
came — yellow caution tape went up in early 
October signifying the renovation of Sullivan- 
Harrell.

Opening 




Some of the more typically talked 
about issues brought about some oth- 
er changes. First, the dates for Greek 
Rush were set. As the P & W explained, 
most opposition to the five week delay 
centered on academic concern. "This 
year's Rush week, which was held 
over a period of three days for frater- 
nities and two for sororities, met with 
mixed reviews from Greeks, with no 
apparent consensus of any one peri- 
od." Another addition to the campus 
environment was something many 
freshmen did not even realize a new 
freshman visitation policy, allowing a 
greater extension of visitation which 
will hopefully be continued in years to 
come. The "No Smoking" policy that 
was implemented became another sig- 
nificant change. Many questioned 
what effect this would bring. Excep- 
tions for no smoking in all building 
were allowed for personal offices sep- 
arated by a door and for an occupant's 
personal residence hall room. The fi- 
nal outcome on these changes is yet to 
be seen as evaluation can only come in 
time. 

Something that never seems to 
change at Millsaps is the quality of 
education. 



Opening 



Still, every member of the community 
knows that there is a lot more to Millsaps 
than formal education. Two seniors, Rachel 
Cook and Eryn Lynn Hackett, say they felt 
the community excitement and unity in all 
types of experiences: "staying up all night 
for a Heritage exam, watching a Major's 
game with students and professors, sitting 
in the bowl. Perspectives, Homecoming, 
SBA parties, watching a Millsaps' Players 
production, t-shirts for 'everything,' Major 
Madness, it goes on and on." 

This year something else touched our 
hearts in a special way. As busy as we can 
get in our campus community, many stu- 
dents became very active in the Jackson 
and national community as well. This year 
we helped the Jackson area with services 
like "cleaning up" Livingston Park to the 
continuation of the Mentor program, as well 
as many other community services. At the 
beginning of the year, everyone had concern 
for the problems in the Persian Gulf. The P & 
W wrote that the "U.S. stood as lone strong 
man against Iraq." When the actual war 
started, the allies rallied with America so 
we were not alone.

10 Opening 





Millsaps was no exception in remembering and ex- 
pressing its concern as we say in the candlelight service 
held in the bowl and with the board in the student center 
in honor of friends, students, and family members in- 
volved in the war. We became more than an inward 
reaching group, but an outward reaching community. 

Looking at all of these events, activities, and exper- 
iences and with commencement drawing closer, we as 
co-editors, begin to see our job toughening. For there is 
no way to put into words everything that has happened 
this year. But we hope this annual will provide a memo- 
rable look into the "new beginning" of Millsaps. 

This brings us back to the question we were ad- 
dressed with at the beginning of the year. Where do we 
go from here? "Higher and higher" is echoed in every 
corner of our campus. We were to build on our past, 
remembering the good and bad of it. We did grow this 
year, not simply in our college community, but among 
the Jackson and national community. In all of our ef- 
forts, we have answered the question and have shown 
that Millsaps is just beginning!

Festive Sights And Sounds" 



Many students experienced a 
shock when they arrived in the 
bowl Saturday, October 20 for 
lunch. A Homecoming carnival 
was set up in the bowl with 
games, prizes, T-shirts, and, of 
course food. Alumni and their 
families returned to the cam- 
pus to enjoy the football game 
and received a special treat 
with the carnival. 

After the carnival, the foot- 
ball game against Central 
Methodist proved successful 
with a 43-21 victory for the 
Majors. The Homecoming court 
was presented. With crown and 
roses, Alicia Clifton was pre- 
sented as the 1990 Homecom- 
ing queen. The other maids in- 
cluded: Jessica Deffes, Leigh 



Ann Smith-Vaniz, Shannon Wil- 
liams, Edi Stuckey, and Blake- 
ly Fox. 

"Bungle in the Jungle" at the 
Jackson Zoo was the way most 
students spent Homecoming 
evening, dancing the night 
away. With a live band and par- 
ty games (like limbo), the 
dance was the perfect celebra- 
tion of the football victory. 
Couples ranged from loose and 
wild, blue-jeaned rebels to ful- 
ly formal sophisticates. 

The Homecoming weekend 
closed with a bang. Heads were 
turned to the skies as students 
stood in awe at the spectacle of 
lights that ended a victorious 
and eventful Homecoming 
weekend.

World News" 



^F^~ 





In August, 1990, after sev- 
eral months of diplomatic 
and military threats, Iraqi 
troops stormed the tiny, oil- 
rich country of Kuwait. 

Iraq justified the invasion 
by claiming that the al-Sa- 
bah family had already been 
overthrown by Kuwaiti reb- 
els, and that Iraq was mere- 
ly responding to a call for as- 
sistance from the new gov- 
ernment. The next day, oil 
prices rose dramatically and 
world stock markets fell. 

Five days after the inva- 
sion, on August 7, the United 
States agreed to send 15,000 
troops into Saudi Arabia. 
The U.N. Security Council, 



also authorized the allied co- 
alition to use military action 
if Iraq had not left Kuwait 
by January 15. 

As this deadline came and 
went, Iraq continued its re- 
fusal to leave Kuwait. In ac- 
cordance with the U.N. reso- 
lution, on January 16, the 
U.S. began bombing Iraqi 
military targets in both Iraq 
and Kuwait. It soon became 
apparent that bombing 
alone would be insufficient 
to force an Iraqi withdraw- 
al. Ground warfare was im- 
minent as the Gulf Crisis 
continued.

Forum Fever 



55 



Millsaps "Friday Forum" pro- 
gram is a unique way to bring 
regional and even national 
speakers along with many in- 
triguing topics to the campus. 

From entertaining to educa- 
tional, the Friday Forum pro- 
gram addresses topics that in- 
terest nearly everyone on cam- 
pus. The season opened with 
Walter Liniger, a musician from 
the University of Mississippi. 
He traced his own blues and folk 
music interest and brought a 
new twist to the "campus party" 
idea. 

AC 215 was packed the Friday 
Joe Loy presented "Skin Heads: 
Terrorists of the 90's." And 
when researcher/investigator 
Frank McCloskey lectured on 




the occult, a large attentive 
crowd listened and asked ques- 
tions. 

In February, Friday Forum 
concentrated on education in 
America. Two area speakers, 
including Dr. Benjamin Can- 
nada, superintendent of the 
Jackson Public School District, 
challenged the state of Missis- 
sippi with certain goals and 
hopes for the future of young 
people. 

What is also important about 
the Friday Forum program is 
the fact that most of the speak- 
ers are from the South, especial- 
ly Mississippi. The resources of 
education, literature, and tal- 
ents are not difficult to find.

Cultural Crossroads 



99 



Cultural crossroads — that's 
the theme of this year's Arts and 
Lecture series. Through writ- 
ers, speakers, and entertainers, 
the program brings cultural 
richness to the college commu- 
nity and those that attend. 

The season kicked off with 
"Readings By Four Southern 
Writers". With Eudora Welty 
herself seated in the front row, a 
new generation of writers pre- 
sented their work to the audi- 
ence. Sometimes funny and so- 
metines sad, the excerpts from 
their novels glimpsed into 



Southern life through dialect, 
self-narrative, and vivid de- 
scriptions. 

Paul Greenberg, Pulitzer 
prize-winning columnist, ad- 
dressed what will probably be 
the issue of the decade, the Gulf 
Crisis. Greenberg originally 
planned to speak on how the 
Gulf situation could be resolved 
without war and why exactly 
the United States was involved. 
His speech had to be altered, 
however. Just twenty-four 
hours before his arrival at Mill- 
saps, U.S. planes bombed Bagh- 



dad, Iraq and the war was offi- 
cially started. 

Other highlights of the Mill- 
saps Arts and Lecture Series in- 
clude the National Theatre of 
the Deaf, the Hilliard Ensemble 
from England, and Mark Selz- 
man, martial arts expert and 
artist.

"With A Little Help From 



» 



The Centennial Volunteer 
Project was started in the 
spring of 1990 with a goal of 
contributing 100,000 service 
hours during the centennial 
year to agencies, institutions, 
and programs (educational, re- 
ligious, and civic) that address 
human needs. It involves not 
only the students of Millsaps, 
but also faculty, staff, adminis- 
tration, and alumni. A twenty- 
five person Advisory Commit- 
tee co-chaired by students re- 
presents the campus 
organizations that sponsor the 
project. Two student coordina- 
tors work with advisor Don For- 
tenberry to achieve the pro- 
ject's goal. The total number of 
hours volunteered each week 
are posted weekly on a board 
above the stage in the bowl. 

Students this year have par- 
ticipated in a variety of activi- 



ties to achieve the project's 
goal. In the early fall, a group of 
students walked to Livingston 
Park for a Saturday clean-up 
day. 

At Christmas time, sororities 
and fraternities sponsored a 
food drive to help the needy dur- 
ing the holiday season. 

Other activities include a 
blood drive sponsored by the 
Black Student Association, col- 
lection of money for the Child 
Abuse Convention by Kappa 
Delta sorority, and numerous 
other events. In April, the Cam- 
pus Ministry got the whole cam- 
pus involved in the citywide 
Midtown Project. The project 
had students, faculty, and com- 
munity members join together 
to clean up the neighborhood be- 
tween Fortification and Monu- 
ment Streets.

"We Must Learn" 




"Education in the 1990s: A 
Concern for Quality" was the 
theme for this year's student 
symposium on February 5-6. 
Numerous distinguished speak- 
ers and panel guests highlight- 
ed an issue college students are 
especially concerned about to- 
day and about which they will 
be concerned in the future. 

Jonathan Kozol, an educator, 
author, and social activist, 
opened the symposium with a 
presentation on the ethical obli- 
gations of the privileged classes 
to the education of the U.S. Dr. 
Ruth Campbell of Mississippi's 
Urban Education Center gave a 
talk that mainly addressed the 
conflicts and struggles of black 
students in the educational sys- 
tem. As a mother of two children 
in the Jackson area. Dr. Camp- 
bell addressed the problems 
with the Jackson Public School 
District's curriculum. She also 
commented on the lack of black 



role models for aspiring black 
professionals and the lack of 
support and motivation for 
black students. 

The symposium closed with a 
panel discussion with several 
Mississippi educators partici- 
pating. The panelists and 
speakers included Dr. Clyda 
Rent, president of Mississippi 
University for Women, Dr. W.J. 
Coggins of University of Ala- 
bama School of Medicine, Dr. 
Leslie McLemore of Jackson 
State University and Universi- 
ties Center, and Dr. Edward 
Ranck, Associate Commissioner 
of Higher Education. 

The student symposium is a 
program run by students for 
students. There was a good 
amount of support from stu- 
dents for the various activities 
held. Faculty members and com- 
munity groups also participated 
in the informative presenta- 
tions. 




1991 Student Symposium Speakers

Show Us What You Got 



55 



Comedy, song, heavy metal, 
and blues — rock were the dif- 
ferent paths talent show com- 
petitors traveled in search for 
the pot of gold (or $75). But the 
judges seemed to enjoy the sing- 
ing groups best and the more 
original the better. 

"Fresh Road Kill" opened the 
competition with a slam rock 
rendition of their tree frog song. 
Later in the show, a suede-boot- 
ed lone guitarist, Auslander, 
performed a solemn vocal solo. 
Elvis Precisely, Ph.D, a full- 
fledged band, performed their 
version of "Maybelline" with a 
bluesy rock and roll feel. Also 
two other songs were played by 
the group in the same revved-up 



style. Dr. Shell and company got 
the audience involved in a Je- 
thro Tull sing-along where the 
audience had to sing the chorus 
part of the song. It was a twist 
on the methods of the other acts 
that made for a different kind of 
fun. Two acts struck the audi- 
ence with comedy routines. 

Alison and Jack successfully 
played out the famous Abbott- 
Costello "Who's on First?" rou- 
tine. While Shawn McKenzie 
used everyday college exper- 
iences to jar the minds and 
laughter of the audience loose. 
Katie and Geoff performed a 
moving original song about 
freedom and solitude; Katie's 
haunting voice rang clear abot 



Geoff delicate guitar. The only 
dance group of the competition 
rocked the show with a high en- 
ergy routine to "Gonna Make 
You Sweat"; Tara Collins and 
Tony Moore, better known as 
"T-n-T", jammed to new and old 
hip hop moves. The winners of 
the evening showed up last, but 
certainly not least. "Gimme 5" 
gave a brilliant acapella perfor- 
mance that obviously stole the 
hearts of the judges. 

All of the groups showed a lot 
of hard work and, of course, 
many more showed their stuff 
than are listed here. Cheers to a 
talented campus!

"Move Into The Madness" 



"M-A- J-O-R! — what does that 
spell? — Major Madness! Friday, 
April 5 kicked off the annual 
Major Madness activities with a 
first annual Greek Street Party. 
Held in front of Fraternity Row, 
a live band entertained wild and 
crazy students into the wee 
hours of the morning. 

For those stable enough to 
make it to the cafeteria Satur- 
day morning, a continental 
breakfast was served from 9-11 
am. With these hours, even late 
risers could catch a refresh- 
ingly tasty breakfast treat from 
food services. Later on in the 
afternoon, food, games, and sun 
were served up in front of Gallo- 
way Residence Hall. A lush fruit 
and vegetable display was part 
of a tent set up for lunch and din- 
ner to serve hungry students 
throughout the day. Participat- 
ing in volleyball games, playing 
"Twister", attempting a three- 
legged race or just lounging on 
the grounds, guys and gals let it 
all hang out. 

By nightfall, the campus was 
hyped up for the annual Greek 
Show. Black sororities and fra- 
ternities from the mid-Missis- 
sippi area convened on the cam- 
pus for a stepping show and 



competition. The showstoppers 
of the evening were the Alpha 
Phi Alpha Chapter from Touga- 
loo College. The Alphas danced 
and stomped their way to the 
first place award for fraterni- 
ties. A tribute to the troops in 
the Middle East opened their 
performance, adding even 
greater meaning to their creed 
of brotherhood. The Delta Sig- 
ma Theta Chapter of Tougaloo 
stole the sorority award. With 
class, poise, and dignity, the la- 
dies of Delta emphasized heri- 
tage and unity among black 
women. The Alphas and AKAs 
of Millsaps gave exhibition per- 
formances that started the 
show. 

After the Greek Show, a 
Bandfest in the Bowl concluded 
the Major Madness weekend. 
Featuring "Freezehead" and 
"The Gunbunnies", the music 
moved Majors to dance and 
groove the night away despite 
humidity and mosquitoes. 

Throughout the weekend, the 
Olin 6 film series presented sev- 
eral films. 

So the Major Madness week- 
end had a full schedule and stu- 
dents made the most of every 
activity.

"John Loves Mary'' 



The 1990 summer play was "John 
Loves Mary" by Norma Krasna, di- 
rected by Lance Goss. This comedy, 
one of the great favorites of recent 
times, is being constantly produced 
by universities and little theatres. 

The action takes place in 1946 in 
New York. John Lawrence (played 
by John Sweeney) has been over- 
seas for three years where his life 
was saved by his buddy Fred Taylor 
(Lance Waycaster). Fred returns 
home a year before John, and John 



brings him what should be a pleasant 
surprise; news that he married Lily 
(Laura Legett), an English girl Fred 
had fallen in love with but who could 
not get to the U.S. unless she was the 
wife of a G.L John marries her and 
plans to deliver her to Fred, then 
John hopes to get a quick divorce 
from Lily and marry Mary (Lynn 
Gieger). He and Mary had been in 
love with each other, but Mary and 
her family have no clue about what 
has happened with the Fred-and- 



Lily situation. 

John must go against the wishes of 
Mary and family when they insist on 
an immediate wedding. Matters are 
not helped when John learns that 
Fred has not only married someone 
else but is an expectant father, too. 
John and Fred get in touch with a 
former officer of their past acquaint- 
ance to help them out of this predict- 
ment. And the story goes on . . .

"The Warrior's Husband 



99 



The first play of the 1990 fall se- 
mester was "The Warrior's Hus- 
band", a comedy by Julian Thomp- 
son, directed by Lance Goss. The 
play is based on Hercules' twelve la- 
bors, "And so, the Gods commanded, 
Hercules went forth on his ninth la- 
bor, to gain the girdle of Hippolyta, 
queen of the Amazons". 

It begins in Hippolyta's palace 
(Elizabeth Reed) in the land of the 
Amazons, where men are on the dis- 
taff side, and where the soldiering 
women merely entertain themselves 
with men after the excitement of the 
battle. The Greeks are at the gate, 
and the ladies gird themselves for 



battle, but it is discovered that the 
warchest is empty. To replenish it, 
Hippolyta agrees to marry Sapiens 
(David Coats), whose mother Pom- 
posia (Shelley Lose) promises her a 
large dowry. The queen dons her ar- 
mor and prepares for the conflict 
while her husband then becomes a 
"wargroom". The queen's gutsy sis- 
ter, Antiope (Lisa d'Amour) is car- 
ried away by Theseus the Greek 
(Douglas Mitchell), taking with him 
Hippolyta's girdle, the garment that 
symbolizes feminine superiority. 
The loss of the girdle very nearly re- 
sults in turning men into the domi- 
nant sex when the lady warriors 



flock across to the tents of the Greel 
army making classical Whoopee 
When, however, Theseus gallantly 
returns the girdle to Hippolyta, sh< 
quickly gets her forces under disci 
pline again, and her flighty little hus 
band, who has strayed during the ex 
citement, submits to domestic au 
thority again. 

The scenery designs and technica 
direction were by Brent Lefavor 
and the fight choreography by Mi 
chael Kirkland. All of the action ii 
the play was well combined witl 
comedy to make an excellent perfor 
mance.

My Three Angels 



5J 



A Christmas play was presented 
by the Millsaps players Dec. 6-9, 
1990, It was a comedy, "My Three 
Angels", by Sam and Bella Spewack, 
based on the story "La Cuisine des 
Anges" by Albert Husson. The play is 
set in a small town of Cayenne in 
French Guyana in Dec. 1910. Con- 
victs from Devil's Island come to the 
town to work. Three particular con- 
victs come to fix the roof of the house 
and store of a local merchant, Felix 



Ducotel (Scotty Reddin). The con- 
victs — Joseph (Shawn McKenzie), 
Jules (Apollo Lewis), and Alfred 
(Douglas Mitchell) — overhear the 
financial problems of Felis and his 
wife Emily (Elizabeth Reed) with 
their conniving cousin (Michael 
Bennison) and his nephew (Devere 
Jehl) and the sentimental problems 
of daughter Marie Louise (Kather- 
ine D'Armond). Because the family is 
kind to them, the convicts decide to 



attempt to rectify the problems. 
They become the family's three 
guardian angels. 

The play was directed by Lance 
Goss. The stage manager was Shan- 
non O'Shields, lighting design was by 
Shelley Lose, and the house manager 
was Sammy Morris. All the actors 
did a great job getting the play lively 
and ready for the audience during 
the busiest time of the school year.

Measure for Measure 



The Millsaps Players began the 
second half of their sixty-seventh 
season with Shakespeare's tragico- 
medy "Measure for Measure," di- 
rected by Lance Goss and technical 
direction by Brent Lefavor. 

The action begins when the Duke 
(Nate McKie) leaves the law in the 
hands of Angelo (Doug Mitchell). 
The Duke pretends to leave while in 
reality he disguises himself as a 
monk to watch how Angelo governs 
the people. 

Angelo decides to enforce a law 



that calls for the execution of any 
man who "makes a woman with 
child" without being married to her. 
Claudio (Vere Jehl) has the unfortu- 
nate privilege of being the one Ange- 
lo chooses to use as an example. 
Claudio's sister, Isabella (Candyce 
Baldrige), a nun, is told of the grave 
circumstances. She comes to plead 
for her brother's life, but Angelo re- 
fuses to listen to reason. He becomes 
attracted to her, so he says that he 
will stop the execution if Isabella 
will give herself to him. Isabella is in 



turmoil. 

The Duke/Friar comes to Isabella 
and tells her of a woman, Mariana 
(Jennifer McCormick), who was 
once betrothed to Angelo and who 
would gladly take her place with An- 
gelo. Isabella agrees and Mariana 
takes her place. Afterwards, Angelo 
breaks his word and says that the 
execution will continue as planned. 

Will the trecherous Angelo be 
stopped? Or will the Duke's plan be 
for nothing? The story continues . . .

What happens when a cowboy, a 
singer, a tipsy professor and a vari- 
ety of other characters get trapped 
at a small diner/bus stop during a 
blizzard? That was the subject of the 
Millsaps Players closing production 
for the season. "Bus Stop" is a play 
by William Inge. It was directed by 
Lance Goss with the technical direc- 
tion by Brent Lefavor. 

The bus stop run by Grace (Emy 
Bullard) becomes a circus of inter- 



Bus Stop 

esting characters when the bus driv- 
en by Carl (Neal Breakfield) be- 
comes stranded during a snowstorm. 
Cherie (Katherine D'Armond) is try- 
ing to escape the clutches of Bo 
Decker (Vere Jehl), a bronco bustin 
cowboy, who is bound and deter- 
mined to take her back to Montana 
to marry her. Dr. Lyman (Shawn 
McKenzie) is trying to escape other 
things, by retreating to a bottle, and 
while capturing the interest of 



Grace's young worker Emma (Jenni- 
fer Bowden). Will, the sheriff (Apollo 
Lewis), tries to keep the peace 
among the group while Carl and 
Grace sneak off for a little 'fun'. Vir- 
gil (Andrew McWhorter), Bo's 
guardian, seems to be the only sane 
voice in the crowd when he gives 
sage advice to Bo. But will Bo listen 
or will he drag Cherie away against 
her will? Only time will tell . . .

The cheerleading squad 
worked diligently and enthusi- 
astically throughout the year to 
support Millsaps. They prac- 
ticed hard during the summer in 
order to prepare themselves for 
the important games ahead. The 
work didn't end once school be- 
gan, for they had to continue 
practicing for games while mak- 
ing signs announcing the games 
and travelling out of town for 
road games. This year the squad 
travelled to road games, includ- 
ing Sewanee and Kentucky Wes- 
leyan college. Heading the 
squad this year were co-cap- 
tains Jim Megehee and Melinda 
Wiggins, who led it in their quite 
successful year of representing 
Millsaps College in the most im- 
pressive manner possible.

The 1990 Millsaps 
season was one of 
ups and downs, but 
the majors set good 
standards for the 
teams of the future. 
With a final record of 
5-4, this year's team 
recorded coach Tom- 
my Ranager's first 
winning season as a 
head coach. 

The majors started 
the season slowly, 
dropping a heart 
breaking home game 
to Davidson College 
24-13 and losing to 
arch rival Sewanee 
6-3 on the road. After 
the 0-2 start, howev- 
er, the Majors stayed 
in the hunt and won 
five out of their last 
seven games. They 
recorded their first 
victory in a strong 
45-14 win over CAC 
member Trinity Uni- 
versity. The next 
week, the Majors 
suffered another 
tough setback, los- 
ing on the road to 
Emory & Henry 20- 
17. 

After the Emory & 
Henry game, the Ma- 
jors went on a tear. 
They started a three 
game winning 

streak by defeating 
the 1989 CAC cham- 
pion Centre College 
team. The Majors 
were due for a 
strong, hard fought 
win and the 17-9 vic- 
tory was it. 

The next week 
they travelled to 
Lambuth College 
and beat the Eagles

27-20. The following week, 
the Majors cruised to a 43- 
21 Homecoming game victo- 
ry over Central Methodist 
College. Bass had a spectac- 
ular game, rushing for 155 
yards and three touch- 
downs. 

As good as the Millsaps of- 
fense was during the win- 
ning streak, it was just as 
frustrated in a 6-0, grudge 
match loss to Rhodes Col- 
lege. However, the Majors 
made a quick recovery in the 
final game of the season, 
blasting Kentucky Wesley- 
an College 56-6 on the road. 
We would like to thank these 
players for their contribu- 
tions to Millsaps College and 
wish them the best for the 
future.

A Team On The Rise 



After a hard first road trip in- 
cluding a 5-1 loss to nationally 
ranked Emory and a 2-2 tie to 
Columbus Univ., the Majors 
came home and lost to Maryville 
1-4. Then the Majors had an in- 
tra conference weekend, and 
tied Oglethorpe 0-0 and Trinity 
2-2. The Majors got the first win 
of the season in double overtime 
over defending CAC champion 
Sewanee 2-1. Then the Majors 
beat LSU — Shreveport 7-1. 
Then the Majors played in a 
tournament at Hinds Junior 
Court in which they beat Hinds 
3-1. Miss. State 5-3, and then lost 
to nationally ranked Richland 
College 2-1 in the finals. Next 
was a trip to St. Louis over fall 
break, during which the Majors 
went 3-0 with wins over Mary- 
ville, Parks College, and Black- 
burn Univ. The Majors then 
came home afterwards to beat 
their alumni 2-0 in OT and lose 
the final conference game to 
Rhodes 1-0. They still made it to 
the CAC tournament, where 
they lost to Centre College 4-3. 
They then beat Rhodes in the 
consolation match 3-1. The Ma- 
jors finished 9-5-4.

Building For The Future 



The 1990 Millsaps women's 
soccer team had a promising 
season, with several significant 
victories including a season 
opening 5-1 win over Tulane 
University, two wins, 3-1 and 2- 
1 over arch rival Rhodes Col- 
lege, and wins over Oglethorpe 
5-0, and Agnes Scott College, 8- 
1. Due to the strong perfor- 
mances by the freshman and 
sophomore players, the years 
ahead look bright for the Ma- 
jors. The team will be a cohesive 
force next year and will surely 
have a winning season.

An Exciting Winning Season 




Men's Basketball 




This year's team boasted the Majors' first 
winning team in three years. Factors instru- 
mental to the team's new found success 
were newcomers Tim Vaughan, Phillip Rob- 
inson, Shawn Croft, and Bert Gardner. 
Vaughan, a junior college transfer from Co- 
lumbus, MS, guided the team from the point 
position. With his smooth passing and a high 
level of intensity, he led the Majors through 
many exciting games. Freshman Phillip 
"Prime Time" Robinson, a graduate of La- 
nier High School, Jackson, MS, led the ma- 
jors offensively. With a potent inside and 
outside game, Robinson established himself 
as a force in the CAC. He earned All CAC 
Honors with his consistent good play. 
Shawn Croft, who transferred from the 
same Jr. college as Vaughan, started out as 
a dominating center, but had a season end- 
ing injury in the third game of the season. 
The loss of his towering presence caused the 
Majors, who were 3-0 with him, to lose five 
out of the next seven games before they ad- 
justed. Bert Gardner, along with Jeff Tur- 
nipseed and Doug Wilson, drew the assign- 
ment of filling Croft's shoes. All three of 
them gave quality minutes to the majors and 
provided the crowd with many exciting mo- 
ments. The team played many close games 
and seemed capable of beating most of its 
opponents, but it lost a few close and excit- 
ing games.

At the beginning of the year, no 
one on the women's basketball team 
knew what to expect. Well, the 
bumpy road that they were on last 
season turned smooth, and with the 
inspiration of the new coach Cindy 
Hannon, and the leadership of Me- 
lissa Cleary and Elizabeth Hearn, 
the Lady Majors were able to con- 
tinue the winning streak from last 
season. 

The Lady Majors were very dedi- 
cated and worked hard all through- 
out the season. This hard work 
payed off because the Lady Majors 
finally earned the respect of the op- 
ponents as well as that of the fans. 
Due to their aggressive defense and 
outstanding offense, the team took 
first place at the Emory Co-Ed Clas- 
sic in Atlanta, Georgia. The Lady 
Majors also took first place in their 
own invitational tournament in Jan- 
uary. The Lady Majors' aggressive 
defense and unselfish team play 
contributed to a ten game winning 
streak during the middle of the sea- 
son. 

The team was very young; with 
only one senior, Jamie Witt, two ju- 
niors, Melissa Cleary, and Elizabeth 
Hearn, three sophomores, Shawn 
Hebert, Angelia Cockerham, Eliza- 
beth Black, and four freshmen, 
Mary Robin Harris, Susan Hearn, 
Stephanie Zimmerman, and Gretch- 
en Scribner, the team is looking for- 
ward to a great season next year. 
One the court, the team was led by 
Melissa Cleary, who ranked in the 
top 24 for free throw % in Div III, 
and by Elizabeth Hearn, who was 
ranked in the top 20 for rebounding 
during part of the season. However, 
it was a team defense and offense 
that gave them an overall 15-5 re- 
cord, a 12-2 record against Div III 
opponents, and a 3-3 record against 
NAIA schools.

The 1990 Millsaps cross 
country team continued to ex- 
perience growing pains in 
only its third year of exis- 
tence. Undaunted, each mem- 
ber sacrificed many long 
hours and trained hard to im- 
prove times. With the help of 
Coach Todd Munch, last 
year's premier runner for 
Millsaps, many runners on 
the team posted personal re- 
cords. Returning from last 
year's team were Lacy Stur- 
divant. Jay Tull, Ken Wil-

Missy Richey. Newcomers

ation.

It would be best to describe 
the 1991 Millsaps baseball 
team as one that faced many 
challenges and succeeded be- 
yond expectation. Consider- 
ing the success of the 1990 
Majors, the many open spots 
in the lineup created by 
graduation, injury, and other 
unforeseen reasons, the 1991 
Majors, under third year head 
coach Jim Page and assistant 
coaches Steve Hancock and 
Trey Porter, soared beyond 
many a critic's expectations. 
The team met many chal- 
lenges head on smashing the 
season record for wins, re- 
cording a 27-10-1 overall re- 
cord, and totalling an impres- 
sive 13-2-1 record en route to 
their second straight CAC 
championship. After opening 
the season with a two game 
seep of the very successful 
Augustina College, the Ma- 
jors set out to Texas to take 
on Trinity University. They 
dropped two out of three 
games and struggled to a 7-7- 
1 record before winning 20 of 
their last 23 games. This suc- 
cess was the result of the 
team batting average, .323, as 
well as the team RA, 3.53, 
which was four runs lower 
than the previous year. The 
hitters, led by Chris Verdery, 
Jake Welsh, and Kelby 
Gilmer, collected an amazing 
82 doubles in addition to 15 
triples and 14 home runs. The 
Majors also stole 106 bases in 
only 38 games. Individually, 
Verdery led the team with a 
.434 batting average. Kelby 
Gilmer, the team MVP with a 
batting average of .421, led

the team in runs (48), hits 
(53), triples (5), home runs

earned the Best Offensive 
Player award by collecting 12 
doubles, 34 RBIs, and a .342 
batting average. Andrew 
Meyers hitting .365, led the 
team with 18 stolen bases and 
was a pivotal part of the Ma- 
jors' success. His return to the 
team coincided with the be- 
ginning of the Majors' win- 
ning stretch. The pitching 
staff held opponents to a .256 
batting average and amassed 
a team ERA of 3.53. The staff 
was led by Parke Pepper, 
Danny Meyers, and Scott Wil- 
liams. Pepper finished the 
season with a 6-0 record and 
was also named the 1991 
Millsaps Most Outstanding 
Pitcher. As of May 6, the 1991 
season may not be over for 
the Majors. They have been 
highly considered by the 
NCAA Div III South Regional 
selection committee to re- 
ceive a bid to the South Re- 
gional tournament on May 
16-19. If they can receive a 
bid and win the regional, the 
Majors would qualify for the 
1991 Div III World Series in 
Battle Creek, Michigan. The 
1991 season could not have 
been a success without the 
play and leadership of this 
year's seniors who have made 
the Millsaps College baseball 
program what it is today. It 
will be very hard to replace 
these five men, but we thank 
them for everything they 
have done for the program 
and wish them luck in what- 
ever they do.

Interfraternity Council 

The Interfraternity Council of Mill- 
saps College recognizes the potentials 
of a unified Greek system. Representing 
over seventy percent of the male popu- 
lation, the IPC must work hard to give 
this system an ultimate purpose. Over 
the past three years, the IPC has made 
great advances towards this goal. For 
example, 1990 was the first year for the 
new delayed rush system which gave 
freshmen more time to adapt to the 
pressures of college life. Also, there has 
been tremendous interest in having a 
Greek sponsored social event on cam- 
pus; and the Spring of 1991 brought this 
to Millsaps under the title of the 1st An- 
nual Greek Street Party. Other things to 
look for in the future include a Junior 
IPC which will start the campus leader- 
ship process early, a Greek newsletter 
to facilitate communication, and a gen- 
eral effort to improve relations between 
the Greeks and the administration. Tak- 
ing these aspects into consideration, the 
purpose of the Millsaps Greek system is 
to build responsible leaders who will 
make strides toward a more unified 
Millsaps Community. 



Judicial Council 

The Judicial Council is an organiza- 
tion responsible for adjudicating cases 
of misconduct involving Millsaps stu- 
dents. The council consists of eight vo- 
ting members. In addition, there are two 
alternates selected by a number of cri- 
teria, but especially for their ability to 
make sound, fair decisions.

Phi Beta Kappa 

Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest college academic honorary in the United States. Founded at 
William and Mary College in 1776, it recognizes and encourages excellence in the liberal 
arts. Only 240 colleges and universities have chapters of Phi Beta Kappa. The Millsaps 
chapter was installed in March 1988 as the Alpha chapter of Mississippi. Each spring the 
chapter elects to membership in Phi Beta Kappa approximately ten percent of the gradu- 
ating class. To be eligible for election, a student must complete a liberal arts degree (BA, 
BS or BLS) and exhibit breadth in the liberal arts, including mathematics and foreign 
language. The Millsaps chapter may on occasion host a visiting lecturer through the 
auspices of the Phi Beta Kappa Society, but its primary activity is the annual election of 
students to membership. There is probably no more widely recognized mark of academic 
distinction than membership in Phi Beta Kappa.

MILLSAPS 
COLLEGE 



A message from 
the President 



The 1990-1991 academic year has been a year of 
celebration and accomplishment. This fall, we 
continued our year-long Centennial celebration, 
which began February 11, 1990. The magnificent 
"Canticles of Time," created by Millsaps alumni 
John Stone and Sam Jones, and performed so 
beautifully by the Millsaps Singers and the 
Mississippi Symphony, marked the close of an era 
and the beginning of a new chapter in the history 
of Millsaps College. 

Millsaps students, faculty and staff have 
continued to participate in the Centennial 
Voluntary Service Project, a project that has 
enabled the College to say "thank you" to the 
Jackson community for its support during the past 
100 years. 

Next fall, the newly renovated Sullivan-Harrell 
Hall will be ready for occupancy and will provide 
additional up-to-date classroom and laboratory 
facilities. The College's Second Century 
Commission is in the process of assessing needs 
and making recommendations in the areas of student 
services, academic program and enrollment. 

As we dream of the great things that can happen at 
Millsaps, our second century promises to be even 
better than the first. 

Best wishes to the Class of 1991! 

George M. Harmon 
President

To our Millsaps community — 

As we sit down to close the eighty-third edition of the Bobashela, we cannot help but hope we 
have covered this year's excitement, sorrows, and happenings as well as previous books. This is 
true because we all realize this year was singular in nature. Therefore, we hope that in twenty 
years when we all sit down to look through the book, we will see our span of excellence and 
remember it with pride. 

It became quite funny to us "women of the publications" that we were allowed to do all this 
work . . . being only sophomores. We must admit there were times we could not understand how or 
why we got this responsibility. However, there are some very special people who helped/support- 
ed us throughout the year and to the end: The Staff, Martha Lee, Kay Barksdale, Mr. Anthony, Mr. 
Ward, Julie Jones, Ann Rankin, Trey Porter, Cathy Thomason, Rob Bradford, and Hilary Davis. 
We extend to you all much deserved praise. Also, we thank Stewart Charles Cohen for a beautiful 
job on the cover picture. 

As we conclude, we want to thank you seniors for the lessons (both good and bad) you left us 
with. You did your part in continuing the building of this community. We all have dreams of how it 
could be better, let's go for it. This is our challenge and it will be examined during "the next one 
hundred." Good luck! 

Thanks for the 
memories — 

Karen & Shannon
