BEAUTIES

The annual beauty revue was held in Broom 
Auditorium Tuesday, November 2, 1965. 

The colorful program which began at 7:30 
was Co-sponsored by the Student Government 
and the Broom. 

From 26 candidates, 10 Beauties were chosen 
by judges, a decision initiated by the Broom staff 
this year. In the past a celebrity has made the 
choice from photographs. 

Theatre majors Wayland Clifton and Teddy 
Solman served as masters of ceremonies. The 
events of the evening were designed around two 
Broadway shows. West Side Story and the Sound 
of Music. Entertainment was furnished by vocalist 
Candy Busby of Etta and Kathy Thompson of 
Columbus playing continuous piano accompani- 
ments throughout the show. 

Colleen Kinney of Dermott, Ark. was the ov- 
erall chairman. Sets were designed by Duane 
Harrison with lighting by Buddy Melton of Friars 
Point. 

Photographs of the 1966 Beauties were taken 
by Robert Pickenpaugh of Jackson. One beauty, 
Pat Kelley was not pictured.

DELTA 
DELTA 
DELTA 




On Thanksgiving Eve, 1888, four young ladies at Boston University founded 
Delta Delta Delta. The pansy, the pearl, the pine and the colors silver, gold, and 
blue soon became known as the symbols of this bond of sisterhood. There are 
now 107 active collegiate chapters with over seventy-one thousand members. 

Phi Phi Chapter was established at Delta State on November 10, 1962. Since 
that time the Tri Deltas have produced leaders in all phases of campus life such 
as Faculty Scholars, DSC Beauties, members of the Homecoming Court, Delta Belles, 
Class Favorites, and many other girls who are active in campus organizations. 

The purpose of Delta Delta Delta is to establish a perpetual bond of friendship 
among its members, to develop a stronger and more womanly character, to broaden 
the moral and intellectual life, and to assist its members in every possible way. 

Delta Delta Delta is a sorority devoted to the principles of friendship, love, and 
sisterhood, as is expressed by its open motto, "Let us steadfastly love one another." 




Tri Deltas clad in white are awaiting a pledging

KAPPA 
DELTA 




Kappa Delta Sorority was founded at Longwood College in Farmviile, Virginia 
in 1897. Since that time Kappa Delta has become a vast sisterhood of over 100 
collegiate chapters with over 55,000 members. 

Kappa Delta came to Delta State's campus in the form of Gamma Psi Chapter in 
1962. During Gamma Psi's short history its members have done much to further 
the traditions and ideals of the sorority. 

In ways of social service. Gamma Psi makes "good morning cards" for all patients 
at East Bolivar County Hospital; gives an annual Thanksgiving basket to a needy 
family; adopts a child each Christmas; helps with the Easter Seal drive; and along 
with PiKA members, collects money for the Heart Fund every year. 

Kappa Deltas are represented among campus beauties, favorites, homecoming 
maids, class officers, various honoraries, the Senate, and other campus organiza- 
tions. Gamma Psi is especially proud of its three Student Government Officers, 
four cheerleaders, and to have "Miss Delta State" as one of its members. 

Social events held by Kappa Deltas each year include informal date parties, an 
annual spring formal, a Mother-Alumni Tea, and an officers banquet. This year 
Gamma Psi held a reception honoring DSC's faculty, which will become an annual 
event. 

Kappa Deltas are united by common bonds of loyalty and sisterhood, and strive 
to excel in scholarship, gracious living, and understanding of those without as 
well as those within their circle.

KAPPA 
ALPHA 
ORDER 




Kappa Alpha Order was founded at Washington and Lee in Lexington, Virginia 
on December 21, 1865, by a group of Confederate soldiers. Kappa Alpha's founders 
chose as their spiritual father General Robert E. Lee, who was president of Wash- 
ington and Lee at the time. It is to General Lee that many ideals of Kappa Alpha are 
traced. Kappa Alpha now claims eighty three active collegiate chapters, all located 
in the South, with over 50,000 members. 

On November 14, 1964, what was Delta Alpha Omega Fraternity became Delta 
Beta Chapter of Kappa Alpha. The men of Delta Beta are active in all phases of 
campus life. The KA's are proud of their many Senators, class officers, and SGA 
Officers, among which is the Student Body president. 

Delta Beta has many social functions each year. Among these are several date 
parties in the fall, a Christmas party, and the annual Rose Ball. 

The aim of the Kappa Alpha Order is "to train young men to cherish the southern 
ideal and protecting pure womanhood, practicing courtesy and self control, and 
preferring self respect to ill-gotten gain."

PI 

KAPPA 
ALPHA 




The Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity was established on March 1, 1868, in Room A7 , 
West Range, University of Virginia, by six young men who desired to form a 
fraternity "for the establishment of friendship on a firmer and more lasting basis 
..." In its 97th year. Pi Kappa Alpha ranks as one of the oldest national fraternities, 
with over 130 active collegiate chapters and 65,000 duly initiated members. 

The Zeta Beta chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha was chartered on December 15, 1963. 
With the establishment of the Delta State chapter, PiKA became the first fraternity 
in the state to have collegiate chapters at all the colleges which have social Greeks. 

The men of Zeta Beta chapter strive to excel in scholarship, leadership, and 
service. The "Pikes" have won the coveted Inter-Fraternity Council Scholarship 
Award for four consecutive semesters. In campus leadership, PiKA has produced 
the senior class president, the SGA treasurer, the vice-president of Delta Play- 
house, the president of Beta Beta Beta, and several SGA senators. The "Pikes" are 
indeed honored this year to have "Mr. Delta State" among their ranks. 

With the coming of the 1966-67 academic year, the men of Zeta Beta look 
forward to an even better year.

TAU 
COLONY 



Phi Kappa Tau Colony was organized on Delta State's campus in the spring of 
1965, after first being established as Phi Tau Delta, a non connectional social 
fraternity in 1963. The group is now working toward full initiation into Phi Kappa 
Tau fraternity. 

The Phi Taus have made many outstanding contributions since their organization 
at Delta State. Their members have been outstanding in Delta Playhouse. They have 
also ushered at plays and concessioned at ballgames. 

Through their many contributions and purposeful efforts, the Phi Taus have 
certainly become an asset in the promotion of academic and social achievement 
at Delta State.

"™^A DELTA 



DELTA STATE COLLEGE — CLEVELAND, MISSISSIPPI 



1965 was the year of Vietnam, the Selma March, the death of 
Churchill, the Gemini flights. Hurricane Betsy, "Thunderball," and 
"the better-have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too deals." 

It was the year that found more pedestrians surrounded by even 
more vehicles between the cafeteria and Doolittle; it was the year 
that the flying saucer landed (somewhat unassembled) at Delta State 
bearing ungotten gifts to the students; and it was also the year that 
street names were proposed and proposed and proposed and still re- 
mained just streets. 

It was the year that found the Miss Delta moving from the old 
Hill Building into Doolittle; having a change of heart and a change of 
editorial staff; reading the Kama Sutra and appreciating its literary 
worth. 

1965 was the year that Wilma Blackmon came and left after two 
previous editors had come and gone— at the loss of Delta State. 

The year found Delta State consumed in a catastrophic "mascot" 
question: that is, to be or not to be decisive— that was the question. 
The editorial staff waved the grand-glorious, much-forgotten patriotic 
banner in favor of the Vietnam controversy; it scorned, scoffed at, 
and coolly banished any and all draft card burners, and it did not 
support the ban on Playboy at LSU. 

The war continued, the mascot remained free for some other school 
to claim, the draft card burners received the gnonymous support of 
"anti-demonstrationist" Cassius Clay, and, well. Playboy remained 
Playboy. 

Paul McCartney remained, for those who were interested, de- 
bugged and de-lightful. 

All in all, the Miss Delta (less puzzles and poetry, less 8X10 color- 
photos of Sheldon and Quill suitable for framing, and less axes to 
grind) continued its publications "o'er the land of the free" and 
with a slight concern of laissez-faire with regard to the printer. 

Yes. God save the printer.

BUILDING DEDICATIONS 

Resulting from a long-range plan by President James M. Ewing, 
the construction projects at Delta State are becoming a reality 
through recent appropriations from the state and national gov- 
ernments. 

A $2,500,000 building explosion has been inaugurated to fur- 
nish facilities for the expanding student body. 

DSC's new cafeteria named for Dr. A. L. Young, emeritus Professor 
of Education and Psychology, and for Miss Katie Mauldin, emeritus 
Registrar, was finished in January and opened in the summer 
session. Costing upwards of $650,000, the completely contempor- 
ary designed structure has four dining rooms with four serving 
lines which can accommodate 1000 at any one time. 

Another part of the recent construction projects is women's dor- 
mitory, Fugler-Hammett dedicated to Madge Quinn Fugler, first 
Board of Trustees member, and to Evelyn Hammett, emeritus of 
English. 

Another structure devoted to the housing of men is Bond-Car- 
penter, named for Willard F. Bond and Harry G. Carpenter, both 
members of the Board of Trustees. 



Better than $800,000 is being used for these two facilities and 
some six other dormitories to supplement the present six men's 
and eight women's dorms. 

With these additions to the physical surroundings of Delta State, 
this institution promises to be one of the instrumental educational 
leaders of the future.

FELLOWSHIP OF CHRISTIAN ATHLETES 



The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is a non-denominational organization 
founded in 1955 by a young Oklahoma college basketball coach who thought if 
athletes could endorse material things, why couldn't athletes who were Christians 
endorse Christianity? He found many who were anxious to do just that. From a 
very humble beginning, FCA has come to be very strong and influential organi- 
zation throughout the country. Scores of professional and college athletes and 
coaches, many of them top names in sports, are active in FCA telling what the 
Christian way of life means to them. In the last few years many college chapters 
have been formed. 

FCA has three main purposes: (1) Find fellowship together for individual 
growth in the Christian life; (2) To serve the cause of Christ through the church 
of one's choice; (3) To render service by witnessing others. 

The FCA strives to help athletes strengthen their faith in God, to realize the 
spiritual side of their lives is the most important part, to be more acive in their 
churches, and to realize the opportunities for influencing and witnessing. 

The Delta State chapter meets twice a month and participation is open to all 
athletes and other interested students.

Delta State broke several long standing records this campaign and it will take something extra 
to break them in the future. Lead by Coach Horace McCool, who has compiled an outstanding 
35-1 1-1 record since taking the helm in 1961, the Statesmen marched through the 1965 campaign, 
posting a final 8-1 record. That single loss came by a mere point to Jacksonville (Ala.) State, 
10-9, ruining all hopes of a perfect season, something the Statesmen haven't done since 1954 when 
they were 8-0. In rolling up seven straight victories without a loss, the Statesmen bounced back 
after the Jacksonville State loss to end the season on the winning note with a victory over Lou- 
isiana College, 30-7. Other victims of the Statesmen were Tampa University, University Martin 
Branch, Samford University, Troy State College, Northeast Louisiana and Arkansas State Teachers 
College. 

Offensively, records were broken, too. McCool's teams of bygone years have been more of a 
running outfit with the slogan being "three yards and a cloud of dust." This year saw the States- 
men come out of that shell and start throwing the pigskin more than ever before. In throwing 
the football the Statesmen compiled 1627 yards and 16 touchdowns, completing 109 of 208 pass 
attempts. By throwing the football, the Statesmen running game suffered, but still turned in a 
good effort. Delta rushers gained 1459 yards the fall on 357 runs from scrimmage, a decrease of 
455 yards since the 1964 team rushed for 2072 yards, but that was on 504 carries. Coach 
Horace McCool gave much of the credit for the line season to the returning lettermen and Sen- 
iors.

The fighting Statesmen of the hardwood could not get the magic combination to produce the 
great ball team during the '65-'66 campaign. This year the Statesmen Frosh produced a great deal 
of excitement for the fans while coming through with a hardwood record of 8 wins and 6 de- 
feats despite the loss of two key players who moved up to the varsity. Having great ability and 
desire, these boys should see much action next season. 

Although, the Green and White were not nearly as successful as in past years, they came up 
with some brilliant games. The highlight of the season was the 127-79 smashing of Mississippi Col- 
lege which broke the school scoring record. This, plus the victories over such teams as Southeastern 
La., Christian Brothers, and a third place finish in the traditional strong Oglethorpe Tournament gen- 
erates the belief that this young ball club can be expected to be much stronger in the coming season. 

Despite the loss of key players. Hunt, Hanes, and Hughes— Little, Young, Parker, and Kirk can 
be expected to fill up any gaps left on the team. These Freshmen, plus a group of young soph- 
omores who developed into experienced performers as the season ended, should provide the nu- 
cleus for a strong club in the '66-'67 season.

Coach Dave (Boo) Ferriss' Delta State baseball squad finished the year with an outstanding 
15-8 record. 

Junior righthander Joe DiFabio of Cranford, N. J., provided the season's top mound work 
as he compiled a perfect record of seven wins against no defeats. 

In working 65 2/3 innings, the Delta ace struck out 97 hitters and walked only 17. He fin- 
ished the year with an 0.54 earning run average, good enough to rank in the top five of the 
nation. 

DiFabio also aided his own cause during the course of the season with his bat, collecting 1 1 
hits in his 31 trips to the plate for a hefty .355 batting average. 

Catcher Ronald McMinn of Batesville, Miss., carted off the individual batting crown with a .353 
average. His 24 hits tied third baseman Dixie Walker of Crystal Springs, Miss., for most hits. 
Walker ended the season with a .273 average as did right fielder T. J. Byrd of Lumberton, Miss. 

Not to be overlooked is the slugging of first baseman Raymond Morgan, a sophomore from 
Grenada, Miss.

WILLIAM M.. _.; 

KETHLEYLID. / i^'-^-^ 

PRESIDENT -• . -, > 

926 ^ 




DR. WILLIAM MARION KETHLEY, scholar and educator, was pres- 
ident of Delta State College from September 1926 to September 
1956— thirty constructive, progressive, and active years. 

When Dr. Kethley assumed his duties, there were only three 
buildings and three trees on the campus. With his great faith in 
God, in his country and his state, in mankind, and in the eternal 
cause of education, he pursued for the institution the allusive goals 
of growth and expansion. 

Under his judicious counsel and sound management, and assisted 
by a faculty made zealous by the multiplicity of the character of 
their commander called "Bill," the college grew. 

Now Delta State College stands as one of the outstanding institu- 
tions of learning in our state and the South. 

The Kethley Memorial Sundial was presented to the college by the 
Alumni Association in 1965 after the death of Dr. Kethley in 1964.

"h takes great souls to make great schools, 
Else all our walls were laid in vain."
