Oa7 Becoming 75 



Two world wars. 

A depression. 

The coming of mechanized, instantaneous travel. 

The invasion of outer space, putting the moon, for which 
man has so long reached, almost at finger's touch. 

The rapid development of communications media. 

The birth of most of the people now inhabiting the 
earth .... 

The list is endless, and too well known to be of value here. 

But they've been eventful, these 75 years since 1892. 

For Millsaps they've included . . . 

Growth, populationally and physically. 

Buildings burned and replaced, ideas born and abandon- 
ed. 

The coming and going of faces, student and faculty. 

Names: George C. Swearingen, J. Reese Lin, J. M. Sulli- 
van, G. L. Harrell, M. C. White, A. P. Hamilton - - but here 
one runs into trouble, for the list is too extensive and too 
subjective to be included whole. 

And, at long last, national recognition of Millsaps' quality 
through the awarding of a Ford Foundation "regional center 
of excellence" grant. 

The years have come and gone and each year has had 
its own achievements and disappointments. Multiply these 
by 75 and one sees why a 75th anniversary is worth celebrat- 
ing. 

As long ago as 1850 Millsaps became a gleam in some- 
one's eye. The idea of establishing a good Christian college 
within the reach of every young man desiring an education, 
located in the state of Mississippi, was born in the mind of 
17-year-old Reuben Webster Millsaps on a long and arduous 
journey to Indiana in search of his own education. Forty 
years passed before he was able to implement his idea, but 
the day came in the late 1880's when the desire to establish 
a Methodist college in Mississippi became manifest. 

Reuben Webster Millsaps, grown prosperous through the 
years by his own sense of business and entitled to the rank 
of major through his participation in the War Between the 
States, offered to give $50,000 toward the establishment of 
such a college if the Methodists of the state would give a like 
amount. 

And so, on February 21, 1890, a charter was granted for 
Millsaps College - - for the name Millsaps had been chosen 
despite the Major's protests. Jackson was selected as the 
site, and that year workmen began construction of the build- 
ings which would house the new school. 

The times change. The site chosen was not even in the 
city limits when construction began. Fields of corn and cot- 
ton separated the business district from the school. Jackson's 
population was 9,000, compared with its present 165,000. 

The campus itself occupied only the western part of the 
current holdings. Adjacent was Jackson College, a Negro 
school which occupied the Elsinore Plantation home and a 
classroom building. Tales abound, propagated by who knows 



The entrance to the 
campus circa 1926. 



Seventy-five years 
is a Jons. time. 
These years hold some 
memories which will 
never he revealed. 



whom, about how the Millsaps students 
stole - - is that too strong a word? - - 
chickens from their neighbors to serve 
for Sunday lunch. 

At any rate, on September 29, 1892, 
the new college for men opened its doors 
with 149 students and four professors. Dr. 
W. B. Murrah was named president and 
professor of mental and moral philo- 
sophy. 

And that was the birth of Millsaps 
College. 

There have been some highlights in 
the years since. 

— A law school was established in 1895- 
93 and continued until the First World 
War. 

— Women were accepted as full-time 
students in the seventh session. 

— The Jackson College classroom 
building was purchased in 1902 and nam- 
ed Founders Hall. It is one of the few 
early buildings remaining on the camp- 
us. Fire and shifting soil have done 
away with most of the others. 

— A preparatory school was establish- 
ed but was discontinued in 1922. 

— In 1910 President Murrah was made 
a bishop of the Methodist Church and 
was succeeded by David Carlisle Hull, 
who left in 1912 and was replaced by 
Alexander Farrar Watkins. 

— The Administration Building, the 
first structure on the campus, burned in 
1914 and was rebuilt and named Mur- 
rah Hall. 

— David Martin Key was named the 
fourth president in 1922. 

— In 1928-29 provision was made for 
the boarding of women students. 

— Sullivan-Harrell Science Hall was 
completed in 1928. Since then the follow- 
ing buildings have been added: Buie 
Gym, 193S; Whitworth Hall, 1939; the 
Christian Center, 1950; Sanders Hall, 
1951; Millsaps-Wilson Library, 1955; Boyd 
Campbell Student Center, 1957; Frank- 
lin and Ezelle Halls, 1958; and the two 
new dormitories, 1966. 

— The depression came, with all its 
hardships. A gas well brought in on the 
campus helped to pay salaries and keep 
the school operating. 

— Marion Lofton Smith was elected to 
the presidency in 1938, succeeded by 
Homer Ellis Finger, Jr., in 1952. Current 
president is Benjamin Barnes Graves, 
who has served since 1965. 

— In 1943-44 a V-12 program was estab- 
lished on the campus by the Navy, help- 
ing to sustain the college during the 
difficult World War II era. 



— Sullivan-Harrell was renovated in 
1964. 

— And, of course, the Ford Foundation 
grant, which will open up a whole new 
era, was received last summer. 

But this says nothing of the academic 
strides made through the years - - the 
establishing of the comprehensive exami- 
nation, the requirement of Graduate Re- 
cord Exams, the painstaking building of 
academic departments, the accomplish- 
ments of individuals and groups, the 
establishment of a reputation for scholar- 
ship, the superior contributions in drama 
and choral music, the recent curriculum 
study and proposed revision. These are 
intrinsics. And these are the most im- 
portant things about Millsaps. 

Each alumnus probably has his own 
list of things he considers significant 
about Millsaps College. This is as it 
should be, since no two people have ex- 
actly the same set of values. 

And no two people will have the same 
memories. Seventy-five years of im- 
pressions would probably contain at least 
one of these: 

— The difficulty of staying in class on 
soft spring days when the warm sun and 
the smell of new grass and flowers seem- 
ed to draw you irresistibly out of doors. 

— • Gallons of coffee consumed during 
night-long paste-up sessions for the Pur- 
ple and White. 

— Trying to stay awake as the night 
slid on and the number of pages to be 
read stayed the same. 

— The awe of discovering how many 
minute details about unrelated subjects 
a particularly knowledgeable professor 
knew. 

— The frantic rush to finish a stage 
set before the play opened. 

— The long treks to class through bit- 
terly cold, rainy days. 

— Another missed deadline for the 
Bobashela. 

— The incessant music in the grill. 

— A chance meeting with a professor 
you hadn't had who called you by name. 

— The seemingly omnipresent theory 
that there's no point in having athletics 
if you aren't on a level with Ole Miss. 

— The sheer joy of putting everything 
out of mind to enjoy a moment of leisure 
- - a dance or a movie or dinner off 
campus. 

Seventy-five years. More than an aver- 
age lifetime. The next seventy-five? One 
waits to see. 



I remember Major Millsaps 




Major Millsaps "belongs to every age of man, as this college attests. 
He was aware ot the chronic need in all men, and his need to face it." 



By Mack B. Swearingen 

Major Reuben Webster Millsaps, for 
whom this college is named, would have 
been remarkable in any human context. 

My favorite memory of him is one of 
looking out a front upstairs window 
of our old house at 1501 North State 
Street, and of watching my father walk 
down the steps to the street and step up 
into the trim little buggy of a trim old 
man. This would be just after daylight, 
and the weather would be cold, and I 
could see my father's breath, and the 
old man's breath, and the horse's 
breath, and the breath of Doc, my 
father's English setter, who was as near- 
ly human as any four-legged organism 
could be. 

This, of course, is a hunting scene. 
The trim old man in the buggy was Maj- 
or Millsaps, and he and Father were 
up to their favorite pastime. They were 
going out early on an autumn morning 
to shoot quail, and I can not even guess 
how many mornings I heard Father get 
up and get out, and then - - after he 
had passed my door - - how many times 
I went up to the front of the house to 
watch him start out towards the north. 
He would come back in the afternoon 
with a dozen or more birds, and that 
night we would have a feast. 

If you have seen the portrait of the 
Major in the Library you will know what 
he looked like, for the portrait is almost 
photographic in its accuracy. The little 
buggy in which he would call for Father 
on those chilly mornings was a kind of 
trademark for him, and I'm certain 
every person in Jackson knew it at first 
glance. It was always drawn by a small 
bay mare, and it was hard to decide 
v.hat gave the sharpest impression of 
elegance - - whether' the Major, or the 



I remember Major Millsaps . . 



beautiful little mare, or the slick little 
vehicle - - but together they made an 
unforgettable picture. 

But this hunting scene may give a 
wrong impression, in that it suggests a 
warm, close friendship between the Maj- 
or and Father. This is not the case. The 
two remained friends from the time that 
Father joined the first faculty of this 
college until the Major died in 1916, but 
they were never really close except in 
hunting season, and there is a story be- 
hind this. The Major once heard that 
Father had the best bird dog in town - - 
that is. Doc - - and asked to borrow 
him. Father told the Major that Doc 
would not hunt for anybody except him, 
but Major Millsaps was not accustomed 
to having his authority questioned and 
said he could handle Doc all right. He 
returned later, of course, without a single 
bird, and reported that Doc had absolute- 
ly refused even to get out of the buggy, 
let alone hunt. So the Major had no 
option but to take along Father, as the 
price of Doc, and thus was born a part- 
nership of many years' standing. 

The Major drove himself everywhere 
in the little rig that I have so lovingly 
described, and I do not remember ever 
seeing him in an automobile. He was a 
man of means and could have had any 
number of cars, and I feel fairly certain 
that he must have had one at some time 
or another. But what is most revealing 
in this situation is that my memory fixes 
him in that buggy, and that I cannot see 
him anywhere else. He belonged in that 
era, and for me he will stay there, where 
he fits. But he belonged in another way 
to every age of man, as this college 
attests. He was aware of the chronic 
need in all men, and of his need to face 
it. Once when one of my friends was 
having trouble finding the money he had 
to have in order to remain in college, 
my father said to me, "If Major Millsaps 
were alive there would be no problem; 
he never once refused to help a student 
in a case like this." The Major knew 
from his own experience what it meant 
to feel a need for knowledge, and feel at 
the same time the stinging pain of not 
having the means to get it. Let us be 
grateful that he had the vision to trans- 
late what he could feel into what we 
could use. 




The turn-of-the-century faculty included, from the 
left, (standing) James Adolphus Moore, G. W. Huddleston, 
George G. Swearingen, Robert Barron Ricketts; (seated) 
Anthony Moultrie Muckenfuss, President W. F. Murrah, 
Bert Edward Young, and David Horace Bishop. 



. . . and the others of the triumvirate 




President William B. Murrah 

I also knew another founder, Bishop William B. 
Murrah. I saw him more often than I saw Major Mill- 
saps, because Bishop Murrah lived longer into my life- 
time - - he died in 1925 - - and he was a neighbor of 
purs, and a warm friend of my parents, and when my 
sister married he performed the ceremony. He was the 
nost lovable of men, with a deep, booming voice, with 
a crinkly kind of face that gave warning of his merry 
ivit, and with a sort of gentle kindness that men can 
lave only when they are at peace with themselves. 




The author: Dr. Mack B. Swearingen, '22, the son of one of the 
first faculty members of the College, is a member of the history 
faculty at Lake Erie College in Painesville, Ohio. He has had a 
long and distinguished career as an educator. The sketches present- 
ed here were a part of a Founders Day address a few years ago. 



Bishop Charles B. Galloway 

My sisters tell me that I also knew the third founder, 
Bishop Charles B. Galloway, but the trutfi is that I 
don't remember knowing Bishop Galloway. He died 
when I was seven years old, and if he and I had any 
kind of friendship it could hardly have been confidential 
and intimate. But if my sisters say I knew him, I know 
better than to get up in public and say I didn't. I wish, 
though, that I did have some genuine memory of him, 
because he was in the opinion of many people the most 
distinguished Mississippian of his time. It was probably 
Bishop Galloway, more than anyone else, who stimulated 
and directed the moral drive that brought the college 
into existence. Major Millsaps supported him all the 
way, and gave the largest single gift of money towards 
getting the college under way. Bishop Murrah was the 
first president, who with great skill saw it through its 
infancy. These were three giants, and any society that 
can have in it at one time three men of this size is truly 
favored of the gods. We will not see their kind in every 
generation.

Future Generations Will Remember . . 



By Benjamin B. Graves 



<jUi 



ullsaps began its 75th academic session 
in September, 1966, with an all-time high enroll- 
ment of 925 students, including an entering 
freshman class of 268. Mississippi students pre- 
dominate, with 778 men and women represent- 
ing 72 of the 82 counties in the state. The re- 
maining 147 students come from 27 states of the 
United States and two foreign countries. 

In addition to one student each from the 
Jewish and Moslem faiths, some sixteen de- 
nominations of the Christian religion are repre- 
sented, with Methodist students totaling 411, or 
44.49t of the student body. 

The beginning of the 75th year of service 
by Millsaps to the Church, state, and nation 
was marked by a formal academic convocation 
on October 14, a date chosen to coincide with 
the meeting of the Council of the Southeastern 
Jurisdiction of the Methodist Church in Jack- 
son. A number of distinguished visitors joined 
the Board of Trustees, staff, faculty, students, 
alumni, and friends in celebrating the begin- 
ning of the three-quarter century year of the 
College. The principal speaker for this auspic- 
ious occasion was Dr. Myron C. Wicke, General 
Secretary of the Division of Higher Education 
of the Board of Education, The Methodist 
Church. 

The formal convocation was followed on 
October 15 by the annual Homecoming Day, 
which attracted a large number of alumni and 
friends to the campus. Climax of the Home- 
coming was the announcement of the Alumnus 
of the Year, Mr. William E. Barksdale, of Jack- 
son, Mississippi, an active Methodist layman, 
former president of the Millsaps Alumni Asso- 
ciation, and Director of the Industrial Division 
of the Jackson Chamber of Commerce. 

Continued improvement of the physical faci- 



lities of the College is evidenced this fall by 
the opening of two new dormitories with living 
space for 176 women and 164 men. These at- 
tractive new structures are completely air- 
conditioned and were designed to provide com- 
fortable quarters for both living and study. 
Founders Hall, the oldest building on the camp- 
us and formerly used for housing freshmen 
women, has been temporarily converted for 
use as classrooms, faculty offices and studios, 
and the Development Office of the College. 

The inauguration of a program of study 
leading to the Bachelor of Music degree, ap- 
proved by the Trustees last spring, has result- 
ed in doubling the number of students major- 
ing in this area. A new In-Service Institute for 
Secondary School Science Teachers was con- 
ducted last year, and is being followed this fall 
by a similar Institute for Elementary Teach- 
ers. Both have had an enthusiastic response. 

The academic year which ended in June, 
1966, was one of the most successful in the 
history of Millsaps. A total of 150 students re- 
ceived the bachelor's degree at graduation ex- 
ercises and, continuing the trend of recent 
years, approximately one-half of these have 
gone on for further graduate or professional 
study. Many of these students have received 
substantial scholarship grants for their grad- 
uate study; fifteen of the graduates (lO'/i of 
the class) received fellowships of national re- 
cognition. This latter group included two Ful- 
bright Fellowships for foreign study and four 
of the ten Woodrow Wilson National Fellow- 
ships awarded in the state of Mississippi. Ap- 
proximately one fourth of the graduating class 
(38 students) had plans to enter public or priv- 
ate school teaching in the fall of 1966. 



The Year of the Ford Grant 



A Mid-Year Report by the President 



The Ford Foundation Challenge Grant 

One of the most exciting and significant 
events in the entire Ufe of Millsaps occured in 
June, 1966, when the Trustees of the Ford 
Foundation offered the College a Challenge 
Grant of $1,500,000. This nationally recognized 
grant comes to Millsaps only after exhaustive 
investigation by the Foundation. It serves in 
part to recognize the quality of academic ex- 
cellence to which Millsaps has been dedicated 
since its founding, and to express confidence 
in its current leadership and future progress. 
Such grants have been made to fewer than 75 
four-year colleges in the nation, and to less than 
a dozen in the mid-South region. The Challenge 
Grant was accepted by the Board of Trustees 
in the summer, with final approval given by 
the two Annual Conferences at a called meeting 
in October. 

The $1.5 million grant is unrestricted and is 
intended for general support of the College. In 
order to receive the full amount Millsaps must 
raise additional funds from other sources in 
the ratio of 21/2 to 1; in other words, Millsaps 
naust raise $3,750,000 in order to receive the 
full $1,500,000 from the Foundation. These funds 
must be secured within a stipulated three-year 
period beginning July 1, 1966, and ending June 
30, 1969. All types of gift income may be used 
to match the grant, including cash, securities, 
real estate, personal property (such as art ob- 
jects), etc., from any source except federal or 
state governmental agencies. 

A general campaign is now being organized 
to raise the matching funds, and some early 
gifts and pledges have been received. The 
formal inauguration of the campaign will take 
place in late February, 1967, launching a con- 
certed effort in the Jackson area and through- 
out the state of Mississippi, and expanding 
rapidly beyond the boundaries of the state. 
Within the Methodist Church in Mississippi the 
Millsaps Challenge Grant Campaign will be in- 
cluded in the general framework of the Bishop's 
Crusade, and no organized separate appeal will 
be made to the local churches. 

The Millsaps Challenge Grant does indeed 
represent a genuine challenge to the College, 
to the Methodist Church in Mississippi, and to 
all persons concerned for quality higher educa- 
tion in our state. No private institution or 
organization in the state has ever attempted 
to raise so large an amount of money in so 
short a time. Alumni, Methodists, and friends 
of the College everywhere have an opportunity 



to undergird the work of the College and to 
open new vistas of opportunity for the future 
of Christian education in our area. 

Needs 

The needs of the College are pressing. Like 
every individual and every institution, Mill- 
saps has to face the fact of rising costs for ser- 
vices, materials, and everything. One of the 
highest priority items in the development of 
our program is the expansion of our library. 
Current holdings of the library total about 
65,000 volumes. In order to maintain our stand- 
ards and continue building a quality educational 
program, we must increase these holdings to 
a minimum of 100,000 volumes and provide ade- 
quate facilities to house them. 

Faculty salaries remain a critical item. 
Without a faculty of first-rate competence, phy- 
sical facilities and libraries cannot make a 
quality institution. Our current salaries are 
roughly 257( below the national average, and 
the competition for well-trained instructors is 
mounting daily. If we are to retain our existing 
faculty and attract competent new teachers, we 
must rapidly bring our salary schedule more 
in line with the regional and national scene. 
Modernization of our existing curriculum, in- 
cluding the development of an adequate pro- 
gram in the fine arts, will impose additional 
burdens on the resources of the College. 

Rising costs also make vital the further ex- 
pansion of our program for financial aid to 
students. Tuition and general fees charged by 
the College have more than doubled in the last 
ten years, but we are still far behind the costs 
of comparable quality private colleges in this 
region. Further increases will make it difficult 
for Millsaps to continue serving the young men 
and women of the state and region unless we 
can provide more substantial scholarship aid 
for promising and deserving students. 

Millsaps has a distinguished history, and 
the quality of its present-day program has re- 
ceived national recognition. 

Alumni and friends can have much to do 
with the future of the institution. To a large 
degree, they will determine whether Millsaps 
will stagnate and even wither away as other 
colleges have done, or whether they will assist 
in opening for it new opportunities for growth 
and development in greater service to the youth 
of our region. Surely, in our troubled times, 
they cannot afford to settle for less than the 
best effort of which they are capable.

Because the y remembered . . . 

they - 1,576 alumni and numerous friends - gave to 
Millsaps College in 1965-66. They gave for a variety of 
reasons — but they gave to keep Millsaps strong. For 
the most part the money went into the operating budget 
of the College; in other words, it helped to keep the lights 
burning and the heat going, the grass cut and the build- 
ings swept, the teachers teaching and the typewriters 
clicking. For other needs, the ones mentioned by 
President Graves on the previous pages, additional 
funds, and great amounts of them, must be forth- 
coming. 

On these pages, however, Millsaps College wishes to 
send a thank-you note to those who have helped to make 
it possible for her to celebrate her 75th birthday; apolo- 
gies are offered to those who may have been inadver- 
tently omitted. The gifts are acknowledged through the

Special Alumni Fund Projects 

The concept of annual giving by alumni to the nation's colleges and universities is one of th 
cornerstones of support for higher education. It has been called the "bread and butter" money whic 
keeps these institutions in business. At Millsaps, annual giving by alumni began in 1956 under th 
Alumni Fund program and has grown steadily since that time. Each year a number of non-alumi 
direct their gifts through the Alumni Fund. This giving takes many forms. Most contributions recei\ 
ed are unrestricted in nature and can be used to meet the most pressing needs of the College. Man 
gifts credited to the Alumni Fund are restricted in nature, however, and directed to a project i 
which the donor is particularly interested. Both kinds of gifts are needed and greatly appreciated.

CAMPUS PLAN SHOWS CONSTRUCTION LOCATION 
IN SECOND COLOR. 

OVERLEAF, ARCHITECT'S PRELIMINARY CONCEPT 
OF ACADEMIC COMPLEX. 




I 






Academic Complex Points to Future 



CONCEPT OF THE No longer is a college 

ACADEMIC COMPLEX an ivory tower institu- 
tion. In order to move ahead, it must use the lat- 
est administrative techniques of business, the 
analytical methods of science and the economical 
concepts of modern architecture. 

The proposed academic complex is a compos- 
ite of all these. Housed within the complex will 
be a fine arts unit, a lecture center, and an addi- 
tion to the library. These are the three campus 
additions most sorely needed to support the devel- 
oping academic program, which is projected to 
accommodate 1500 students by 1975. 
THE FINE ARTS UNIT 

With the drama classes already installed in 
the Christian Center, where planned renovations 
will give them a fine air-conditioned theater, the 
music and art classes will occupy the new fine 
arts unit. The music section will consist of a re- 
cital-lecture auditorium seating about 400, a cho- 
ral rehearsal hall-classroom seating about 100, a 
small music library for records and books, two 
organ practice rooms, several practice studios 
and individual practice rooms. The art section 
will consist of four studios for sculpture, paint- 
ing and graphics, along with a gallery lobby. 
THE LECTURE CENTER 

As expansion in enrollment and new inter- 
disciplinary teaching approaches begin to take 
hold at Millsaps, pressures on the regular class- 
room structure also begin to appear. 



As enrollment increases, for example, the 
College must increase either the nunnber of teach- 
ers or their efficiency. Essentially, this means 
supporting the teachers' efforts with technological 
teaching aids and lecture rooms designed for 
optimum teacher-student rapport. 

The new lecture center will have four amphi- 
theater classrooms designed to seat from 75 to 
180 students and completely supported with the 
most sophisticated audio-visual equipment, plus 
a cluster of small seminar rooms and offices. 
Thus a lecture ordinarily given 6 times to classes 
of 30 can be given once to a class of 180, with the 
teaching time gained to be used in small seminars 
and one-to-one counseling. 

THE LIBRARY ADDITION 

Over the last decade, the library holdings 
have increased from 34,000 to 64,000 volumes, and 
its staff and the annual purchase of books have 
doubled. In view of the projected growth figures, 
this trajectory will continue for the next decade. 
Millsaps will need to double both the library floor 
space and the rate of book acquisition to meet 
standards set by the best available authorities. 

In addition, the College should install an auto- 
matic audio-visual storage and retrieval unit, and 
the basis for a future electronics infcnrmation 
system. This can all be done with the greatest 
economy by extending the library to the west in- 
to the academic complex.

Events of Note 



McNAMARA TO SPEAK 

A two-day "Toward A Destiny of 
Excellence" convocation will be 
staged by Millsaps February 24-25 to 
focus attention on the school and to 
inaugurate its $3.75 million drive. 

Speakers for the big event, as an- 
nounced by Program Chairman R. E. 
Dumas Milner, of Jackson, will be 
Secretary of Defense Robert S. Mc- 
Namara; Roger Blough, chairman of 
United States Steel Corporation; and 
Tennessee Governor Buford Elling- 
ton. 

The convocation will include a va- 
riety of events, such as a special pro- 
gram for alumni and friends, a din- 
ner for business and industrial lead- 
ers, a founders program, alumni and 
citizens citations, tours of the cam- 
pus, a reception, and various lunch- 
eons. 

An eight-member Steering Com- 
mittee is being headed by R. Baxter 
Wilson, president of Mississippi Pow- 
er and Light Company, as chairman, 
and W. Merle Mann, president of 
Wortman and Mann, as co-chairman. 

Members are Mr. Milner, who has 
had the responsibility of securing the 
noted speakers; T. M. Hederman, 
publicity chairman; William E. 
Barksdale, attendance chairman; 
Mrs. Tom Scott, Jr., women's chair- 
man; W. P. McMullan, Sr., hospi- 
tality chairman; Mendell M. Davis, 
alumni citations chairman; Edmund 
L. Brunini, citizens citations chair- 
man; and Alex McKeigney, arrange- 
ments chairman. 

The $3.75 million is, of course, be- 
ing sought to match the Ford Foun- 
dation's $1.5 million grant on a two 
and a half-to-one basis. The resulting 
$5.25 million will be used for provid- 
ing additional faculty incentives, an 
academic complex, and additional li- 
brary holdings. 

FALL CONVOCATION HELD 

This is the year for convocations at 
Millsaps. 

An opening-of-the-75th-session con- 
vocation in October included an aca- 
demic procession, an address by Dr. 
Myron Wicke, open house at the two 



new dormitories, and Homecoming. 

The stately academic procession, 
which included Methodist dignitaries 
in Jackson for a meeting of the 
Southeastern Jurisdictional Council of 
the Methodist Church, set the mood 
for the first day's events, which were 
highlighted by the formal program in 
the Christian Center. 

Dr. Wicke, who is general secre- 
tary of the Division of Higher Edu- 
cation of the Methodist Church's 
Board of Education, warned his lis- 
teners that every technological leap 
places a new demand upon the hu- 
man spirit to manage what has been 
created. 

"Alongside technological advance 
may develop conditions leading to hu- 
man degradation unknown to more 
unsophisticated eras," he said. 

Meetings of various constituent 
groups occupied the remainder of the 
day. Saturday's Homecoming agenda 
included reunions, a victory over 
Southwestern of Memphis, tours of 
the dormitories, and the traditional 
banquet, at which the Alumnus of the 
Year award was made. 

BARKSDALE TOP ALUMNUS 

William E. Barksdale, of Jackson, 
a member of the Class of 1930, was 
honored at Homecoming as the out- 
standing alumnus for 1966. 

Mr. Barksdale was named Alumnus 
of the Year at the Homecoming ban- 
quet in the Campbell Student Center. 
He was chosen for the award on the 
basis of service to community, church, 
and college. 

Manager of the Industrial-Distribu- 
tion Division of the Jackson Cham- 
ber of Commerce and manager of 
the Central Mississippi Development 
District, Mr. Barksdale was cited for 
his distinguished career as a public 
servant of the state of Mississippi as 
well as for contributions to his church 
and college. 

He served as executive director of 
the Mississippi Agricultural and In- 
dustrial Board for nine years. Dur- 
ing that period manufacturing wages 
increased 967o, effective buying in- 
come increased 727c, per capita in- 



come jumped from $486 to $838, one, 
hundred new plants were brought in 
under the BAWI with combined pay- 
rolls of approximately $300 million, 
and 247 privately financed firms were 
brought into the state. 

Under his direction travel and tour-! 
ist promotion business rose from $99; 
million to $300 million, a gain of 2017o.i 
A statewide community development 
project was inaugurated which in-i 
volved community participation in; 
the "Hospitality Month" program,, 
ending with the selection of "Miss! 
Hospitality." 

Mr. Barksdale directed five traveL 
editors' tours of the state, bringing 
in leading magazine and newspaper! 
editors and representatives of AAA 

clubs in the state. 

I 

He also directed a concentrated ad-| 
vertising program for the state, plac-i 
ing advertisements in leading maga-l 
zines, more than 40 metropolitan! 
newspapers, and business newspapers 
and trade publications. He directed, 
the printing of thousands of pieces; 
of literature on Mississippi and con- 
tacted editors and writers throughout] 
the nation, securing nationwide pub- 
licity for the state. | 

He also was responsible for a pro- 
gram known as "Selling Mississippi 
to Mississippians," in which a month- 
ly publication was issued and news | 
releases were prepared for 120 week- 
ly and 20 daily newspapers in the j 
state. j 

He organized and directed the In- ! 
dustrial Development Department, 
which contacted industrial prospects 
and developed a nationwide contact j 
system with industries. Contacts were! 
made on behalf of three Mississippi 
governors with leading industrialists, I 
investments bankers, and other prom- 
inent key executives over the nation. 

Mr. Barksdale's service to his 
church includes membership on the 
Official Board at Galloway Memorial 
Methodist Church. He is also associ- 
ate superintendent of the Church 
School. He was church lay leader 
from 1962 to 1964 and was a delegate 
to the Annual Conference three years. 



24 



I 



He has been a member of the joint 
Radio and Television Committee of 
the Southeastern and South Central 
Jurisdictions since it was organized 
21 years ago. The Committee is the 
producer of "The Methodist Hour." 

He has been president of the Mill- 
saps Alumni Association, chairman of 
the Alumni Fund, and a member of 
the Millsaps Associates. Officials say 
his contacts have opened doors to sub- 
stantial sums of money for Millsaps. 

Mr. Barksdale graduated from MDl- 
saps in 1930. He was a member of 
the editorial staff of the Clarion- 
Ledger for five years before moving 
to the Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Amer- 
ican in 1935. While on the staff there 
he organized and taught the first 
journalism courses at the University 
of Southern Mississippi. He served 
as dean of students and director of 
publicity at Southern in 1941. 

His career has included two years 
as an assistant at the Jackson Cham- 
ber of Commerce and a term as ex- 
ecutive assistant to the late Governor 



Thomas L. Bailey. After leaving the 
A & I Board he became director of 
public relations and publicity for 
Alexander Smith, Inc., of Greenville, 
Mississippi. He has also served as 
executive assistant of Mississippi 
Chemical Corporation in Yazoo City, 
Mississippi. 

Mr. Barksdale is secretary - treas- 
urer of First Mississippi Corporation, 
vice-president of the First Security 
Life Insurance Company, and vice- 
president of the First Carton Corpo- 
ration. 

His wife is the former Mary Elea- 
nor Alford, '33. Their two children, 
Eleanor ('59-'65) and Bill ('64), also 
attended Millsaps. 

ENROLLMENT LARGEST 

Millsaps had the largest enrollment 
in its 75-year history this fall, with 925 
students registered. 

The students represent 72 of the 82 
Mississippi counties, 27 states, and 
two foreign countries. 

Previous all-time high was in 1959,

FOOTBALL RECORDS BROKEN 

When the football season ended this 
year officials were scanning the 
record books to see if the squad had 
broken some long-standing gridiron 
records. 

The Majors ended the season with a 
4-3-1 record, the first winning mark in 
ten years. 

Senior quarterback Danny Neely 
concluded a brilliant season with a

BARKSDALE NAMED TOP ALUMNUS 




William E. Barksdale, center, was named Aluminus of the Year at the 
Hcmeccming banquet. With him are President Benjamin B. Graves, left, 
and Alumni Association President Raymiond Martin. 



total offense of 1,322 yards to rank 
high in nationwide statistics. 

Neely's totals came largely in the 
air, where he completed 103 passes in 
186 attempts for 1,257 yards, 14 
touchdowns, and one two-point con- 
version. 

Senior halfback Edwin Massey, the 
team's lone four-year veteran, was 
the leading scorer. He talUed seven 
touchdowns for 42 points. 

Massey held a comfortable lead in 
pass receptions, catching 38 for 429 
yards, which should put him high 
among all-time Millsaps receivers. 

Ceroid Robbins' ten punts against 
Ouachita finished out a productive 
year for the senior fullback in that 
department. He booted 52 times for 
1,905 yards and a 36.6 average. 

Final team statistics show the Mill- 
saps offense scoring 154 points, high- 
est point - production in many years 
for the Purple and White. The Major 
defense allowed 140 points in eight 
games. 

The Majors averaged 303.8 yards 
per contest offensively, netting 157.1 
in the air. The eight opponents aver- 
aged 297.4 yards per game against 
Millsaps. 

Highlights of the season were 40-28 
and 32-18 upsets of- Sewanee and Aus- 
tin on successive Saturdays, a 26-0 
Homecoming whitewash of arch-rival 
Southwestern, and a thrilling, last- 



minute 21-17 road victory over Mary- 
ville. 

The Majors managed to tie Ran- 
dolph - Macon 7-7 in Ashland, Vir- 
ginia. Randolph - Macon was one of 
the highest rated college division 
teams in the country. 

Defeats for the Majors in 1966 came 
at the hands of Livingston State in 
the season opener and to Harding 
and Ouachita of the Arkansas Inter- 
collegiate Conference. 

The 4-3-1 season for Coach Harper 
Davis's charges ended a long dry 
spell for the Millsaps eleven, which 
had won but three games during the 
past three years while dropping 21. 

OPERA WORKSHOP OPENS 

The Music Department has a new 
look this year, mostly brought about 
by the decision to offer a Bachelor of 
Music degree. 

In addition to the course revisions 
required for the new degree, an opera 
workshop is now a part of the campus 
scene. 

First production was a December 
presentation of "Amahl and the Night 
Visitors," which local critic Frank 
Hains recommended as a Christmas 
tradition. 

Paula Page, '64, returned from In- 
diana University, where she has been 
a graduate student in voice, to sing 
the role of The Mother. 



The cast also included Stacy 
Jenkins, 12-year-old son of Dr. and 
Mrs. Cecil Jenkins (Patsy 
Abernelhy), '51 and '50, as Amahl; 
McCarrell Ayers, instructor of voice; 
Richard Alderson, '59, assistant pro- 
fessor of voice; Mark Matheny, '68, 
and Torrey Curtis, '67. 

Miss Page was scheduled to re- 
ceive her Master of Music degree in 
voice performance in January. Her 
future plans include study 
in Germany and a professional sing- 
ing career in opera and concert per- 
formances. 

For the past two summers she has 
been selected as an artist apprentice 
by the Santa Fe Opera. This year she 
received the Lillian Garabedian Prize 
for outstanding work. 

PRIDDY RECEIVES NSF GRANT 

The National Science Foundation 
has granted Millsaps $25,000 to sup- 
port its third summer conference on 
the geology of the Mississippi Sound. 

The conference, officially titled "A 
Short Course in Geology of Mississip- 
pi Sound for Geology Teachers," will 
be held in June. It will be directed 
by Dr. Richard R. Priddy, chairman 
of the Millsaps geology department. 

Thirty - two college teachers of 
geology and earth science will be 
chosen to participate in the confer- 
ence. Dr. Priddy said preference 
would be given to teachers who could 
best benefit by a coastal study. 

The conference is the third to be di- 
rected by Dr. Priddy under the 
auspices of the National Science Foun- 
dation. The two previous studies have 
drawn participants from throughout 
the United States and Canada.

"Toward A Destiny of Excellence" 

I 

Convocatior 



Secretary of Defense Robert 

McNamara, U. S. Steel Executive : 

1 
Roger Blough, and Tennessee 

Governor Buford Ellington give 

big boost to cause of education — 1 

and to Millsaps' challenge 

campaign. 

HI 
e put aside the weighty tasks of protecting a 
mighty nation and came to Jackson to give support to 
a cause which he considers a part of security; educa- 
tion. 

He flew in and out very quickly, the Secretary of De- 
fense of the USA; the pressures of his awesome job 
demanded a quick return. 

But he gave of his time to advance the cause of ed- 
ucation, even through so small a school as Millsaps 
College. I 

He considers education a part of the security of a 
nation, he said. "Security is development," he said. 
"One of the most foolish features of man ... is his al- 
most incurable insistence on spending more energy 
and wealth in waging war than in preventing it," he 
said. And one means of closing the gaps which cause 
misunderstanding and tension among nations and men 
is education, he stressed. 

I 

Still basking in an afterglow strong enough to pro^ 
vide a first-rate tan, Millsaps has returned to some 
degree of normalcy now that the "Toward A Destiny of 
Excellence" convocation, so long the primary concern 
of so many people, is past. 

It can be said without qualification or fear of con- 
tradiction that the event was a success. Never 
before has Millsaps been the object of so much favora- 
ble attention. Each event went off without a hitch; it 
seemed as if the gods smiled on the affair, even to thai 
extent of providing perfect weather in dreary February. 

The very fact that Secretary of Defense Robert Mc- 
Namara would make one of his rare public addresses 
on behalf of little Millsaps College was an auspicious be- 
ginning. The fact that the citizens of Mississippi accord- 
ed him a courteous reception added prestige to the 
state's somewhat tattered image in the eyes of the 
nation. 



>cores Big Hit for Millsaps 



In spite of some storm warnings which were is- 
sued prior to his arrival, not a boo or catcall was 
heard in the packed Coliseum. Not that there weren't 
some protests: There were letters in the papers and a 
small demonstration in downtown Jackson Friday after- 
noon; a cross was burned at the fairgrounds gates and 
in front of the men's dormitory area Thursday night. 

The security provided for the Secretary was a thing 
to behold — and to come up against. Not even those in 
charge of the convocation were able to dissuade or 
persuade the guards once a rule had been made. Pictures 
which had been arranged for in the waiting room prior 

■ to the program fell to the wayside when officers refused 
admittance to the photographers. But then again all rules 

.could be put aside: After the program, instead of being 
whisked back to the airport, the Secretary was given a 
ride down Capitol Street on a- sightseeing tour at the 
suggestion of Senator John Stennis. 

ABC, NBC, and CBS came to town, along with news- 

i paper writers and radio and television crews from Mis- 
sissippi and a smattering from neighboring states. Press 
clippings from within the state alone filled several big 
envelopes. 

I Secretary McNamara's address (see page 6) was 
pertinent to the theme of the occasion. The eleven citi- 
zen citees were impressive. The decorations in the 
mammoth Coliseum were inspired. The event was well 
attended. All in all, Friday's program was on a scale 
which it seemed impossible to surpass. 

Ellington Challenges Alumni 

Saturday's proved to be no anti-climax, however. 
There were no security problems to be worried about, 
;but there was a packed agenda, beginning with the 

■ Alumni and Friends Program at ten o'clock. Tennessee 
Governor Buford Ellington, as the main speaker, was elo- 
quent in his plea for support for higher education and 
Millsaps in particular (see page 10). 

Twenty-five alumni were cited during the program 
for their contributions in their professions and in their 
.private lives. Each one was proof that Millsaps has 
achieved some goals in the quality of its product. Each 
was a person in whom all graduates and former stu- 
dents can take pride. 

Even the students, the most critical of critics of 
any college food, were proud of the luncheon Saturday. 
An even greater cause for satisfaction than the food, 
to those intimately involved, was the smoothness with 
which the luncheon went off — no crowded lines or ta- 
bles, no long waits. 



The President's Reception in Fae Franklin Hall gave 
visitors an opportunity to meet Mr. and Mrs. Roger 
Blough, Governor and J\Irs. Paul Johnson, Mr. and Mrs. 
John T. Kimball, of New York City, Mr. and Mrs. Bax- 
ter Wilson, and President and Mrs. Benjamin B. Graves. 

$500,000 Gift Announced 

Then came the business and industrial leaders ban- 
quet Saturday evening at the Heidelberg, and an inspir- 
ing and heartwarming occasion it was. One of the na- 
tion's leading businessmen, Roger Blough, took time 
from his busy agenda to fly to Jackson to make the 
main address. He had some pertinent and important 
things to say about the support of higher education (see 
page 18) and his audience rewarded him with a standing 
ovation. 

President Graves then took the speaker's stand to 
explain why Millsaps needs the Ford Foundation grant 
and the matching funds, and his remarks matched the 
inood of the weekend in appropriateness and inspira- 
tion. 

James B. Campbell, national vice chairman of the 
"Toward A Destiny of Excellence" campaign, filled in 
for George B. Pickett, national chairman, who was 
ill, in challenging those present to respond to the Col- 
lege's request for help in matching the Ford grant. He 
interrupted himself to allow President Graves to an- 
nounce the first big gift, $500,000 in cash and assets 
from alumnus Robert Mason Strieker, of Woodville, Mis- 
sissippi. 

Eighty-two-year-old Mr. Strieker was the hit of the 
evening as he explained why he had chosen to make so 
large a gift. Recalling fondly his days at Millsaps and 
the influence of the school on his life, he told of his 
first visit back to the campus in some sixty years. 

He added, "I had planned to leave the money and 
assets to the college in my will, but I'm always thinking 
about a profit, so I decided to give it now." 

He referred, of course, to the fact that the Ford 
grant will increase his gift by forty per cent. 

The excitement and enthusiasm engendered by Mr. 
Strieker's gift and appearance provided the perfect cli- 
max to a perfect weekend. The convocation left a feel- 
ing of pride in Millsaps, in Mississippi for its good 
conduct, and for the excellence of the event itself. 

A great many people put a large number of hours 
and huge amounts of energy and hard work into the 
convocation. Some were alumni, but some were Jack- 
son citizens whose benefit will be only indirect. To 
them all, Millsaps owes a debt of gratitude.

Program I 



Toward the Prevention of Seismii 



By Robert S. McNamara 
Secretary of Defense 



I am here in Mississippi tonight — and very pleased 
to be so — not only because of the warmth of your hos- 
pitality; but, in particular, because of the profound re- 
spect I bear the man who invited me: Senator John 
Stennis. 

He is a man of very genuine greatness: not only in 
his home State of Mississippi: and not only in the Senate 
of the United States of America; but in this nation at 
large. 

That he is a gentleman, and a man of towering per- 
sonal integrity, is clear to anyone who knows him. But 
he is more than that. He is a man of courage and self- 
lessness. He has handled matters of inflammable, emo- 
tional sensitivity with responsibility and balance; and he 
has strengthened the essential constitutional principle of 
the separation of powers in our government with a 
classical sense of our history and our tradition. 

I feel particularly objective about saying this of 
him, for there are some technical military matters on 
which he and I have disagreed. 

But I want Mississippians to know — and I want him 
to know — that I regard his contribution to the United 
States as something beyond calculation. 

This nation is in his debt. 

And I am honored to be his friend, and his guest. 

Tonight I would like to discuss with you three im- 
portant and inter-connected issues. As it happens, they 
are all gaps of one kind or another. 

The first is the gap between the developed and the 
underdeveloped world; the second is the gap between 
the two major areas of the developed world; and the 
third is the gap which exists among elements of de- 
veloped nations such as our own. 

Economic growth carries with it the potential for 
order and security. Lagging economic growth — and 
widening differentials in growth both among nations and 
within nations — carry the seeds of disunity and disorder. 
One of the principal ingredients of growth is a dynamic 
technology. And this in turn is a function of a high-quality, 
broadly based educational system. It is this theme which 
T would like to explore with you tonight. 

Let me begin with the economic gap between the 
developed and the underdeveloped world. 

In my address before the American Society of News- 
paper Editors in Montreal, I discussed the relationship 
between security and development. I pointed out that in 
a modernizing world, security is development. 

It is a lesson difficult for us to comprehend, for 



we have stereotyped security into purely military terms. 
Security has, of course, a military component. But we 
make a dangerous, and myopic, mistake to believe that 
security and military power are synonymous. 

History is full of human folly. And surely one of the 
most foolish features of man all through history is his 
almost incurable insistence on spending more energy 
and wealth in waging war than in preventing it. 

It has not proved to be a very good bargain. 

We read a great deal today about the crisis of the 
economic gap between the underdeveloped countries of 
Asia, Africa, and Latin America — and the more favored 
nations of the northern hemisphere. 

But, even to discuss that gap has now become a 
cliche. And the trouble with cliches is not that they are 
not true. The trouble is precisely the opposite: they are 
so true, and they are repeated so often, that one can 
no longer grasp their implications. 

The average annual per capita income in some forty 
of the world's poorest countries today is roughly $120. 
That is less than 35c a day. The annual per capita in- 
come in the United States is nearly $3,000. That is 
about $8.00 a day. That is more than a 2000 per cent 
difference. 

That is no mere economic gap. It is a seismic fis- 
sure — driving deep into the earth's sociological crust to a 
certain, if hidden, fault line. It can produce — it will 
produce — thunderous earthquakes of violence, if rich and 
poor countries alike do not do more to meet the threat. 

Natural earthquakes are not predictable. We can 
only tragically record their damage and death after- 
wards — and when it is too late. But seismic sociological 
explosions — which can be far more damaging and dead- 
ly than their natural prototypes — can to a degree be 
predicted. 

Not only can they be predicted theoretically, they 
can often be practically prevented. 

Let us be blunt. 

If the wealthy nations of the world — by support of 
projects such as our Foreign Aid Program — do not do 
more to close this sundering economic split, which 
cleaves the abundant northern half of the planet from 
the hungering southern hemisphere, none of us will 
ultimately be secure no matter how large our stock of 
arms. 

The seismic social shocks will reach us all — and 
with them will come the inevitable tidal waves of vio- 
lence. 



ocial Shock 



As Secretary of Defense, my primary responsibility 
is the security of this nation. I put it to you frankly: 
the widening economic chasm between the rich nations 
and the poor nations can be as threatening to our se- 
curity as the physical emergence of Chinese nuclear 
weapons. 

It is as simple — and it is as sobering — as that. 

Technological Gap — or Managerial? 

Now, let me say a word about the second gap. 

Unlike the first one, this second gap is between the 
developed nations: specifically, between the highly in- 
dustrialized nations of Europe, and ourselves. 

The Europeans have termed it the Technological 
Gap. Their complaint is that we are so surpassing them 
in industrial development that we will eventually create 
a kind of technological colonialism. 

Prime Minister Harold Wilson of Great Britain used 
some rather pointed language at a recent meeting of 
the Council of Europe at Strasbourg. He warned of "an 
industrial helotry under which we in Europe produce 
only the conventional apparatus of a modern economy, 
while becoming increasingly dependent on American 
business for the sophisticated apparatus which will call 
the industrial tune in the 70's and 80's." 

The whole question got onto the agenda of NATO's 
ministerial meeting in Paris last December. The Organi- 
zation for Economic Cooperation and Development has 
issued a report on the subject. The Common Market 
is meeting this month over the issue. 

Part of the problem is the so-called brain drain. 

Increasing numbers of foreign-born scientists and 
technicians are leaving the Old World for the New, not 
merely because of higher salaries but — and this is per- 
haps even the more compelling motive — because of the 
challenging and adventurous job-situations here in the 
United States. 

While not discounting the more serious implications 
of this matter, we ought not to become too narrowly na- 
tionalistic about it, either. 

Brains, on the whole, are like hearts. They go where 
they are appreciated. 

Now, nationalism, generally speaking, has never 
made much headway against love. And I rather doubt 
that in the end nationalism by itself is going to be much 
more successful with the brain than it has been with 
the heart. 

But I do have a suggestion for Europe about the 



so-called brain drain, if they are really so concerned 
about it. 

To begin with, I believe that the technological gap 
is misnamed. It is not so much a technological gap 
as it is a managerial gap. And the brain drain oc- 
curs not merely because we have more advanced tech- 
nology here in the United States, but rather because 
we have more modern and effective management. 

God — the Communist commentators to the contrary 
— is clearly democratic. He distributes brain power uni- 
versally. 

But He quite justifiably expects us to do something 
efficient and constructive with that priceless gift. That 
is what management is all about. 

Management is, in the end, the most creative of 
all the arts — for its medium is human talent itself. 

What — in the end — is management's most funda- 
mental task? 

It is to deal with change. 

Management is the gate through which social, politi- 
cal, economic, technological change — indeed change in 
every dimension — is rationally and effectively spread 
through society. 

Some critics, today, keep worrying that our demo- 
cratic, free societies are becoming overmanaged. The 
real truth is precisely the opposite. As paradoxical as 
it may sound, the real threat to democracy comes from 
undermanagement, not from overmanagement. 

To undermanage reality is not to keep it free. It is 
simply to let some force other than reason shape reali- 
ty. That force may be unbridled emotion; it may be 
greed; it may be aggressiveness; it may be hatred; it 
may be ignorance; it may be inertia; it may be any- 
thing other than reason. 

But whatever it is, if it is not reason that rules man, 
then man falls short of his potential. 

Vital decision-making — particularly in policy mat- 
ters — must remain at the top. That is partly — though 
not completely — what the top is for. But rational deci- 
sion-making depends on having a full range of rational 
options from which to choose. Successful management 
organizes the enterprise so that process can best take 
place. It is a mechanism whereby free men can most 
efficiently exercise their reason, initiative, creativity, 
and personal responsibility. 

It is the adventurous and immensely self-satisfying 
task of an efficient organization to formulate and ana- 
lyze those options. 

It is true enough that not every conceivable complex 
human situation can be fully reduced to lines on a graph, 
or to percentage points on a chart, or to figures on a 
balance sheet. 

But all reality can be reasoned about. And not to 
quantify what can be quantified is only to be content 
with something less than the full range of reason. 

The argument against modern tools like the comput- 
er is, in the end, an argument against reason itself. Not 
that a computer is a substitute for reason. Quite the 
contrary, it is the product of reason and it assists us 
in the application of reason. 

But to argue that some phenomena transcend pre- 
cise measurement — which is true enough — is no excuse 
for neglecting the arduous task of carefully analyzing 
what can be measured. 

A computer does not substitute for judgment any 
more than a pencil substitutes for literacy. But writing 
ability without a pencil is no particular advantage. 



Toward the Prevention of Seismic Social Shocks 



Modern creative management of huge, complex 
phenomena is impossible without both the technical 
equipment and technical skills which the advance of 
human knowledge has brought us. 

And in my view the industrial gap that is beginning 
to widen between Europe and the United States is due pre- 
cisely to what we have been discussing here. 

To close the gap . . . 

Now, how can that gap be closed? 

Can it be closed by boycotting American technology 
by high tariffs, or by prohibiting American investment 
in foreign countries? Can it be overcome by narrowly 
restricting scientific immigration? I doubt it. 

Can the gap be closed by individual countries in 
Europe establishing an immensely expensive, and nar- 
rowly nationalistic, defense industry — on the dubious 
economic theory that only through massive military re- 
search and development can a nation industrialize with 
maximum speed and benefit to its domestic economy? 

The answer is demonstrably No. 

And the proof is clear. The two overseas nations 
which have industrialized the most rapidly and success- 
fully since the end of World War II are Germany and 
Japan, And neither of these nations has established a 
domestic defense industry. 

How, then, can the technological gap be closed? 

Ultimately it can be closed only at its origin: educa- 
tion. 

Europe is weak educationally. And that weakness 
is seriously crippling its growth. It is weak in its gen- 
eral education; it is weak in its technical education: 
and it is particularly weak in its managerial educa- 
tion. 

The relevant statistics are revealing. 

In the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and 
Italy — for example — about 90 per cent of the 13- and 14- 
year-old students are enrolled in school. But after age 
15, there is a tremendous drop-off. Then, less than 20 
per cent remain in school. 

In the United States, 99 per cent of the 13- and 14- 
year-olds are in school. But what is more important, 
even at age 18 we still have more than 45 per cent 
pursuing their education. 

In the United Kingdom there are some 336,000 stu- 
dents enrolled at the university level. Thus only about 
ten per cent of college-age individuals are attending in- 
stitutions of higher learning. 

in Germany there are about 270,000 students at the 
university level, and this represents only about seven 
per cent of all the college-age youngsters. 

In Italy there are about 240,000 students at the 
university level, which, again, is only about seven per 
cent of the college-age group. 

In France the picture is somewhat brighter. Some 
400,000 students, about 15 per cent of the college-age 
group, are actually receiving fugher education. 

But compare these figures of industrialized Europe 
with the United States. Here we have more than four 
million students in college; and this represents some 
40 per cent of our college-age population. 

What is also to the point is that modern managerial 
education — the level of competence, say, of the Harvara 



Business School — is practially unknown in industrialized 
Europe. , 

Now I cite these statistics, not to boast of American! 
education, but simply to point out that technological ad-' 
\ance — and its two bedrock prerequisites: broad general 
knowledge and modern managerial competence — cannot 
come into being without improving the foundation of it 
all. ] 

And that foundation is education, right across the] 
board. 

What I am saying is that if Europe really wantsi 
to close the technological gap, it has to improve its edu- 
cation, both general and special, and both quantitatively 
and qualitatively. There is just no other way to get to 
the fundamental root of the problem. 

Now, I do not want to be misunderstood in all this.i 

Science and technology, and modern management, 
do not sum up the entire worth of education. 

Developing our human capabilities to the fullest is 
what ultimately matters most. Call it humanism — or call 
it whatever you like — but that is clearly what education 
in the final analysis is all about. 

But without modern science and technology — and the 
generalist and managerial infrastructure to go with it — 
progress of any kind, spiritual, humanistic, economic, 
or otherwise, will become increasingly less possible ev- 
erywhere in the world. 

Without this kind of progress the world is simplyl 
going to remain explosively backward and provincial.! 

Here at home ... | 

There is. it seems to me, a lot of needless and 
even negative provincialism left right here at home in 
the United States. And it exists at all four points of the 
compass. 

Mississippians are intensely patriotic Americans. As! 
Secretary of Defense I am in a particularly good posi- 
tion to observe that. Mississippians won no fewer than 
four Congressional Medals of Honor in the Korean con- 
flict. And they are fighting tonight — half a world away — 
to preserve the freedom of choice for a foreign and un- 
familiar people from whom Mississippians ask nothing, 
in return. 

The bravery of Mississippians is legendary. At Get-j 
tysburg it was a Mississippi regiment that advanced! 
across that storied meadow towards Cemetery Ridge. i 
They came as proudly as if they were on parade. Not a; 
man reached the wall, but the regimental colors werei 
planted by one Mississippian at arm's length away before] 
he fell. The University Grays, a company of students; 
from the state university, accepted casualties of exactlyj 
100 per cent. Their courage was without parallel. 

On the base of a small Southern town's monument! 
to the Confederate dead there are inscribed the words:' 
"The manner of their death was the crowning glory of: 
their lives." 

Mississippians intend to display that same courage| 
in the face of the future as they have always done in the; 
face of death. 

That future will require courage of us all. 

More has transpired to change man and his life on' 
this planet in this past half century than in all the! 
;nillenia of his entire history.

The United States has moved forward in the past 
few years at an incredible pace. 

And the foundation of it all is the growing excellence 
of American education. 

Every area in the United States has problems in this 
field. My home state of California has received its share 
of notoriety in recent weeks. 

Here in Mississippi there are particular challenges 
for education. All of us in this hall are aware — without 
rancor — that this state has not kept pace with what it 
can and must do in education. 

Though it places 14th among the 50 states in the 
expenditure of personal income going to education, it 
ranks last among the states in average expenditures per 
pupil. 

The dropout rate is high, as is the illiteracy rate. 
The median of 8.9 years of schooling is substantially be- 
low the nation's average of 10.6 years. 

The state's college-bound students rank well below 
the national average in scores achieved on the Ameri- 
can College Testing program. Recent national scholar- 
ship tests show Mississippi to be last in the country 
in the percentage of students achieving a passing score. 

But though these problems exist, the state has made 
genuine progress in a number of educational projects: 

You have developed a statewide system of junior col- 
leges. 

You have established a new organizational plan for 
higher education. 

You have begun a Research and Development Cen- 
ter. 

And, most important of all, you have demonstrated 
a desire and a determination to improve the state's 
system of public and higher education. 

We are all gratified that Millsaps College — a private 
institution— has been selected by the Ford Foundation as 
a potential "regional center of excellence," and that it 
has been awarded a Challenge Grant of $1.5 million— to 
be matched by Millsaps' raising $3,75 million to meet 
the challenge requirement. 

Raising money is, of course, always a challenge. 
It is particularly so in connection with schooling. 

I have a suggestion . . . 

I have a personal and practical suggestion on how 
to move toward meeting that challenge in Mississippi— 
and indeed in the nation at large. 

It is a plan quite distinct from the Ford Foundation, 
and the challenge-grant system under which this partic- 
ular grant has been offered to Millsaps. 

It is the concept of the Employee Matching Plan- 
pioneered first by the General Electric Company in 
1955. 

The matching idea is at once simple and effective. 
A company matches the contribution of its employees 
to colleges, universities, and sometimes to pre-college 
institutions— generally on a dollar-for-dollar basis, up to 
a prescribed annual ceiling amount. 

Each company establishes its own ground rules, cov- 
ering such details as which employees are eligible to 
participate; what classes of institutions are qualified to 
receive the proceeds; and what kinds of gifts, up to a 
designated level, will be matched. 

The particular value of the Employee Matching Plan 
is its immense flexibility. Companies may set up their 
own rules, and the rules vary widely. 

But best of all, it gives the individual employee in 



a firm a strong feeling of personal participation in sup- 
porting education. If a large corporation gives money to 
education — as so many do today — there is a degree of 
impersonalization in the whole process. 

But if an employee gives a gift — no matter how small 
—and realizes that in giving the gift he is in effect 
doubling, and in some cases tripling, his gift by the 
company's matching policy, he feels that he has done 
something personal and valuable to further education 
... as indeed he has. 

"Developing our human capabihties 
to the fullest is what 
ultimately matters most . . . That 
is clearly what education . . . 
is all about." 

The Employee Matching Plan in the large national 
corporations has been overwhelmingly successful in the 
short time that it has been in operation. It has raised 
tens of millions of dollars for educational institutions. 

Shortly before I left the Ford Motor Company to 
join the Defense Department. I participated in setting 
up that company's plan; and there are now some 330 
companies across the nation that have Employee Match- 
ing Plans. 

The Council for Financial Aid to Education in New 
York and the American Alumni Council in Washington 
are two institutions which can assist firms in designing 
plans to meet their particular wishes. 

What I particularly would like to see is this type of 
plan introduced in local and regional firms. At present 
the Plans cover but a tiny fraction of employed person- 
nel throughout the nation. By extending them to smaller 
concerns, their coverage and their leverage can be mul- 
tiplied several fold. They can be tailored to fit virtually 
any size company— and with virtually any set of ground 
rules. 

I believe that Mississippians here in Jackson — and 
throughout the entire state— could bring their imagina- 
tive enthusiasm to this idea, and end by moving educa- 
tion forward throughout the state in a highly personal 
and rewarding manner. 

Mississippi is proud of its past; and it is that pride 
that can enrich its present and enlarge its future. 

Mississippi has a very great potential— far greater 
than any of us here can perhaps even imagine. And that 
potential will spring from what is great and good in its 
past; and what is great and good in its land, its water, 
its fields; and, most of all, what is great and good in 
all its people. 

In a beautifully sensitive passage, a writer of great 
distinction has put this truth with all the delicate in- 
sight that characterizes her work. Writing of Mississip- 
pi, she says: 

"Perhaps it is the sense of place that gives us 
the belief that passionate things, in some essence, 
endure. Whatever is significant and whatever is trag- 
ic in a place live as long as the place does, though 
they are unseen, and the new life will be built upon 
those things . . . ." 
It is an honor for me that that gracious lady of 
American literature sits with me here on this platform 
. . . Miss Eudora Welty. 

Thank you, and good night.

Program II 



In an eloquent 

and sometimes 

poetic address 

Tennessee Governor 

Buford Ellington 

explained what 

Millsaps means to 

him. "Deep within the 

memory of every man 

. . . deep in his 

heart . . . there is 

a place, next 

to home, that 

he regards ivith a 

lasting love and 

sentiment. I feel 

that ivay about Millsaps." 




"With its proud history of service, and its promise of a glowing future, 
Millsaps College . . . must recognize that now is a time for acceleration 
to continue its role as one of the nation's most distinguished church- 
related liberal arts colleges."

Periods come in the life of a college when the lights are green . . . the speed of development 
is increased . . . and all signals are "Go"! It's 

A Time for Acceleration 

By Buford E. Ellington 
Governor of Tennessee 



You who have assembled for this occasion represent 
leading proponents for the advancement of Millsaps 
College and for the meeting of requirements of a Ford 
Foundation Challenge. 

Individually, you represent most of the major fields 
of human endeavor vital to our civilization — business, 
industry, engineering, the medical sciences, govern- 
ment, law — and the other vocations that serve mankind. 

As a group, you are here to implement a fund- 
raising campaign of major import to this comparatively 
small, but highly distinguished, American college. 

There's a call in the air. A call to a great cam- 
paign. 

It can only get stronger. 

It can acknowledge but one answer — 

And that answer is prompt and overwhelming re- 
sponse to a great and worthy campaign. 

I am proud of Millsaps — 

Proud of its modest beginnings — 

Proud of the historic little observatory that could 
nestle in the palm of Palomar — 

Proud of Old Shack Row, that knew the tread of 
many feet and the beginnings of many ambitions. 

It was in a day before the ready availability of help 
to get through college — and many students were there 
on a day-to-day basis. I believe that Millsaps students 
probably got more from their personal contact with fac- 
ulty members of those days than any other college was 
able to impart. 

Great memories . . . great school . . . great be- 
ginning . . . and now the greatest future of all its 
lengthy history. 

There's a challenge grant from the Ford Foundation, 
not just within sight, but within grasp. 

And it is not at all likely that you were going to be 
the recipient of a matching grant unless the Founda- 
tion was convinced that you were the ones who could 
put it to the desired regional use. 

We speak today of "A Time for Acceleration" . . . 
let it be our keynote. 

Periods come in the life of a college when the 
lights are green . . . the speed of development is in- 
creased . . . and all signals are "Go"! Yes . . . 

It's a time for acceleration . . . the insistent keynote 
of this campaign. 



It is unlikely that many of you would be here to- 
day except that you are the beneficiaries of the arts 
and sciences that are refined in, and spring from, the 
hallowed halls of Millsaps. 

It is unlikely that many of you would be here today 
unless you were deeply conscious of the opportunity 
now facing Millsaps to go into new fields of contribution 
to higher education. 

It is a high tribute to you personally, and to your 
community standing . . . that this campaign goes beyond 
the value of a dollar . . . and gets into the value of your 
time. 

It was 77 years ago that Millsaps College was found- 
ed with a high purpose that has prevailed to this day 
. . . the development of young people for responsible 
leadership and well-rounded lives of service to their fel- 
low men, their country, and their God. 

Let me cite one paragraph of a document, officially 
adopted by the Board of Trustees and the faculty of 
Millsaps: 

"As an institution of higher learning, Mill- 
saps College does not shape the student in a com- 
mon mold of thought and ideas, but rather at- 
tempts to search out his often deeply hidden ap- 
titudes, capacities, and to provide opportunities 
for his maximum potential development." 
Millsaps is a collegre of character and has been from 
its opening days. 

It seeks to broaden the student's horizons, and to lift 
his eyes and heart toward the higher attributes of life. 
From campus to classroom it guides those charged to 
it for higher education into the certainty of ready ac- 
ceptance of responsibility to neighbor, to state, to church, 
and to country. 

That readiness to accept responsibility made this 
convocation possible. And I don't think we should take 
the acceptance of responsibility lightly. 

Responsibility is a necessity ... a vital necessity 
. . . for any student, faculty member, or alumnus who 
claims to have the interest of higher education at heart. 

The student has a responsibility to himself, and to 
those who are making it possible for him to go to col- 
lege. 

This responsibility can be fulfilled only by the full 
utilization of his time . . . and only by giving the 
maximum effort for each undertaking. 



11 



A Time for Acceleration 



I firmly believe that it is not beneath the dignity 
ol any college student of today to be filled with re- 
spect for his teachers, his school, and his church ... as 
well as for his state and his nation. 

I have little sympathy ... in fact I must admit 
I'm filled with disgust . . . when I read about young 
people in this nation who think that the maximum 
sacrifice they can make for their country is to burn 
their draft card. 

Thank God that these are not the students making 
the main stream of college life today. 

For these few . . . this small but loud minority . . . 
are huddled under the very protective freedoms that al- 
low them to act uncivilized in a civilized world. 

The very fiber of the freedom that is woven into our 
American way of life will withstand the stress of many 
violations . . . but its continual existence depends upon 
the responsible actions by those who benefit by these 
freedoms. 

Professors have sobering responsibilities 

The professor should also be a very vibrant partici- 
pant in the quest for responsibility. 

His responsibility goes even beyond that of the stu- 
dent. What a challenge it must be . . . and yet what a 
sobering experience ... to know that the lives of twenty, 
thirty, or forty human beings in a classroom will be 
affected by the information which flows from the teach- 
er's lips. 

I still vividly recall the very beneficial influence 
that such faculty members as Dr. Stephens and Dr. 
White, Dr. Hamilton and Dr. Mitchell and President Key 
had upon me as I spent my formative years here at 
Millsaps. 

I know, as each of you in this room knows, just 
how great the influence of a college professor can be, 
and to me this goes beyond what he says in a class- 
room. 

This follows through into his activities in the com- 
munity and in the state. 

I am certainly not advocating or even hinting that 
we should infringe upon academic freedom . . . freedom 
of speech, or freedom of expression . . . but I am say- 
ing, as I said before about the student, that with this 
freedom goes a very grave responsibility. 

One further point concerning responsibility. I believe 
that a college or university has a very definite responsi- 
bility to the people it serves; People in the community, 
the students on its rolls, the parents, the faculty mem- 
bers on its payroll, the church or group or political jur- 
isdiction that provides its support. And all have a very 
definite right to know just what this college stands for. 
Fortunately, we know what Millsaps College stands 
for. 

As I said, it is a college of character, and to me 
it is this long and deep establishment of character 
that will carry through in this challenge drive. 

The opportunities for money are always exciting, but 
the inherent dedication and desire to serve our fellow- 



man will be the backbone of this effort. 

With this heritage, we should not be surprised at 
the good fortune that has come the way of Millsaps from 
the Ford Foundation. 

It was but a natural outcome of the performance of 
Millsaps College in higher education. 

America needs diversity in education 

For the full sweep of this history of our nation, you 
may be sure the Ford Foundation researchers have ob- 
served, there has been a very real need for church- 
related, liberal arts colleges like Millsaps, and there 
will be no lessening of that need in the future. 

We are a nation that builds strength with diversity, 
and such do we have in the nature of our colleges and 
universities. 

Some are church-related, some are privately en- 
dowed, and some are sponsored by state and local gov- 
ernment. 

Competitive? 

Yes, to the extent that we in America applaud the 
virtues of competition, but yet they are bound closely 
together by the common purpose of preparing our youth 
for responsible citizenship. And here, if you will permit 
it, a personal note: 

My relationship with institutions of higher education 
in recent years has been almost exclusively with tax- 
supported colleges and universities . . . those in Ten- 
nessee, to be specific. 

I believe that my record in support of higher educa- 
tion as Governor of Tennessee will prove my intense in- 
terest in the welfare and progress of these institutions. 

I hold the same interest and respect for the church- 
related and privately endowed institutions of higher ed- 
ucation. 

I believe that all of them . . . church, private, and 
public . . . must move ahead in meeting today's needs 
of our nation's youth. 

And my interest had its beginning days and inspira- 
tion, I proudly say, on an early campus of Millsaps 
College. 

With its proud history of service, and its promise 
of a glowing future, Millsaps College in particular must 
recognize that now is a time for acceleration to continue 
its role as one of the nation's most distinguished church- 
related liberal arts colleges. 

If ever there was a time for acceleration . . . accel- 
eration of facilities to answer the new needs ... it ob- 
viously is now. 

The number of college-age youth increases . . . and 
the percentage of such youth wanting to make it through 
college increases even more sharply. 

Millsaps, like every other college and university in 
the nation, has an inescapable responsibility to serve 
these young people. 

To continue serving its proportionate share of the 
nation's youth . . . and specifically to serve the growing 
numbers of youth in this particular region who are quali- 
fied as, and definitely should be, students of Millsaps, 



12 



he institution must gear its faculty and facilities to sub- 
itantial expansion. 

Expansion and acceleration ... a working combina- 
ion of higher education institutional greatness. 

rhe Ford Foundation Challenge 

The most crucial reason Millsaps faces a time for 
acceleration emerges from the challenge that has been 
Tiade by the Ford Foundation. 

This is a highly flattering challenge . . . This is 
significant, and a pleasure to note: 

Only eight colleges and universities in the entire 
South were so honored by the Ford Foundation this year. 

Millsaps is thus linked with such great institutional 
[lames as Duke, Emory, Vanderbilt, Birmingham- 
Southern, Furman, Hendrix and Randolph-Macon. 

The selection is a challenge in the militant sense of 
the word. 

It is a dare flung in the faces of those who care about 
Millsaps. 

We. are challenged to show our sincerity and grati- 
tude in a most tangible way ... to match every dol- 
lar given by the Foundation with two dollars and a 
half from our own personal and our corporate pocket- 
books. 

Ford Foundation is saying to you, and to me, that 
Millsaps is an excellent institution which has the po- 
tential of a lasting contribution and service to mankind. 

Ford Foundation is saying: "Here's a college which 
will be a definite part of education's greatest advances." 

The Foundation believes that to the extent of a mil- 
lion and a half dollars. 

Show us now what you believe. 

Show us that you appreciate what Millsaps has done 
and is in strong position to keep doing at an accelerated 
pace. 

Let me remind you that Millsaps has a tradition of 
not taking such challenges lightly. 

Turn a page of history for a moment: If you will 
look into the background of the institution, you will be 
reminded that it was founded on the basis of a chal- 
lenge.. 

In the late 1880's, Major Reuben Webster Millsaps, 
a Jackson businessman and banker, offered to give 
$50,000 for an endowment to create the institution if 
Methodists throughout the state would match his gift. 

This the people of Alississippi quickly did. The char- 
ter was issued in 1890, and the college was named in hon- 
or of a pioneer believer in the matching process for 
school development. 

Now Millsaps faces another challenge. 

I am well aware that raising three million, seven 
hundred and fifty thousand dollars in matching contribu- 
tions will not be an easy assignment. 

I Under any yardstick, that's a large sum of money. 
On the other hand, we are being given the choice of 
spending money for this purpose now ... or of losing 
even greater sums of challenge in the years ahead. 

Now, I am not a professional fund-raiser with all the 
answers involved in a campaign like this. 



But I say to you this . . . that a man does not sit in a 
Governor's chair without gaining hard and solid experi- 
ence in raising money for worthy purposes, in the top 
bracket of which is higher education. 

A state builds its educational system upon the val- 
ues, the potentialities, and the needs involved. 

The required expenditures, to be legislatively author- 
ized, must be publicly justified. The people must be 
told the whole story of the program. They must feel 
in their hearts that it is a correct program to imple- 
ment. 

That is precisely what Millsaps faces in its current 
foundation matching campaign ... a selling program. 

There may be a tendency to emphasize that a gift of 
two dollars and a half will be matched by one dol- 
lar . . . but giving merely to match other gifts is not 
enough. 

Most people will give to a cause for the same rea- 
son that they buy anything for their personal use. They 
give to help what they deem to be worthy. 

And this is where Millsaps has an advantage. 

It will not be difficult to convince potential contribu- 
tors of the values of Millsaps, and of the needs that can 
be met by the solicited funds. 

The campaign for these and for related purposes in 
a new forward position for Millsaps is going to require 
sustained investment of leadership, and expenditure of 
energy. 

Many methods may be used, but the greatest results 
will be reached by the personal touch . . . the "go and 
see" method of conducting the campaign. 

In the final analysis, therefore, the success of this 
campaign will depend upon the performance of the volun- 
teer worker" who are willing to contribute their most val- 
uable time as well as their own gifts to bring about 
the advancement of Millsaps College. 

They are the ones who must bear the heaviest 
burden of the challenge. 

They are the heroic figures of the campaign. 

But they are also the ones who will be offered the 
greatest possible rewards of personal satisfaction in the 
success of their efforts and in the perpetual good that 
they are contributing to their fellow man. 

For Millsaps College, this is the day and the hour 
of the volunteer. 

The day and the hour of magnificent challenge . . . 
the day and the hour of personal mobilization . . . the 
day and the hour to measure out the plans for the bene- 
fit of young men and women whose lives and careers 
will be shaped at Millsaps College. . . . 

The day and the hour for the educational advance- 
ment of this region .... 

And the day and the hour for the acceleration of 
the career of Millsaps College, around whose strong 
shoulders destiny now wraps its arms for a future of 
greatness and glory. 

Deep within the memory of every man . . . deep in 
his heart . . . there is always a place, next to home, 
that he regards with a lasting love and sentiment. 

I feel that way about Millsaps. 

I believe you do, too. 



"Show US now what you believe," Ellington challenged. "Show us that 
you appreciate what Millsaps has done and is in a strong position to 
keep doing at an accelerated pace."

At this convocation, it will astonish no one — and 
may even gratify a lew — if I speak for a moment of, 
our duty to support institutions of higher education such, 
as Millsaps. 

There is so much to be said on the subject of aid toi 
education that, with due apologies to the ladies, I ami 
reminded of the young lad who asked his father to ex-j 
plain an article that api5eared in the daily press. His 
father, busy reading the newspaper, said somewhat; 
thoughtlessly: "Why don't you ask your mother?" The; 
youngster replied, "I just don't want to know that much' 
about it." I 

Perhaps you just don't want to know that much 
about aiding education because I suspect you really know: 
a great deal about it and that you need not be told whyi 
you, your company, other businesses and every citizenj 
able to do so should support higher education. | 

But as we discuss, at this convocation, our national 
striving "toward a destiny of excellence," we realizei 
that both the pace and the extent of our progress will 
depend heavily upon what happens to our colleges and; 
universities. 

One way of thinking about it is to try to imagine a^ 
United States of America without these institutions of 
higher education, and without the graduates they havej 
produced. What kind of government would we have?! 
How primitive would be our system of production? How! 
far down the list of so-called "underdeveloped nations"] 
would we stand? And of what great power might y/e 
be a hapless satellite? j 

When we look at it that way we recognize, I be-| 
lieve, the necessity and the urgency of providing a 
college education for every high school graduate whoi 
has the intellectual capacity and the desire to obtain it.,| 
But to build, to equip, to staff and to operate that kinds 
of an educational plant costs money — more money, inj 
fact, than it takes to produce all the steel that is madei 
in America today. 

On the basis of present trends, it is estimated that 
by 1974 there will be about 3% million more students in 
our colleges and universities than there were in 1964.i 
We shall need 168,000 more college teachers. And with-| 
out allowing anything for inflation, expenditures for 
higher education will increase by almost 11 billion dol-i 
lars, and will be nearly double what they were a decadei 
earlier. 

Tuition and fees, we know, can provide only a frac-i 
tion of this money. The rest must come either fromj 
voluntary contributions by churches, foundations, busi-J 
nesses, alumni and other individuals, or out of taxes 
collected from us by government. 

Now you may ask, with all the tax money being' 
channeled into private education these days, why not: 
let Uncle Sam take care of it? Why should you pay! 
twice — once by the tax route and again by voluntary! 
giving? And it is, 1 agree, tempting to think in these! 
terms; but such temptations should be stoutly resisted, | 
for — like Eve — we are dealing here with the apple ofi 
knowledge, and we're in trouble enough already. ' 

Despite the seemingly boundless resources of gov-' 
crnment, federal aid to higher education does have itsi 
limitations. One of these limitations, for example, is) 
that such a large proportion of the total federal supporti 
in recent years has been for research in the hardl 
sciences; and while this research was undoubtedly ofj 
great importance in expanding our total store of knowl-j 
edge, it contributed little to the primary function of aj 



18 



school — the function of teaching its students. This raises 
luestions as to a proper balance between physical re- 
icarch and teaching. 

Another limitation has been the degree to which 
he bulk of these expenditures has been concentrated in 
1 relatively small number of colleges and universities. 
Jnder recent legislation, however, this situation is 
;hanging and federal support is being more widely di- 
versified, not only among the educational institutions, 
)ut among the various fields of activity. 

The fact remains, nevertheless, that most of the 
noney which goes to higher education under the fed- 
;ral program is earmarked for specific purposes or 
)rojects; so that government, rather than the schools 
hemselves, determines where and how these funds shall 
)e spent. This is one of the chief limitations inherent 
n the federal program; and among some educators it 
■aises disconcerting questions as to the ultimate state 
)f academic freedom. 

You may have read, for example, that Syracuse Uni- 
versity recently expressed dissatisfaction with being 
old how to educate Peace Corps volunteers, and dropped 
he program which it had undertaken for the government 
;everal years ago. Now, training Peace Corps volun- 
eers may be a specialized function about which there 
;ould be reasonable differences; but the point empha- 
;ized in the news stories was that the university felt it 
;hould have the last word in the training of these vol- 
inteers so long as it had the responsibility for the train- 
ng; but the government felt otherwise. 

This is not to deprecate in any way the importance 
)r the worth of federal aid to education; but it is to 
iispel the notion that the federal program is an adequate 
)r acceptable substitute for private, unrestricted con- 
ributions. 

Private funds free schools 

These private funds can, in the main, be used by 
he colleges and universities without regard to the whims 
and wishes of the donors. The school is free to decide 
or itself how the money can be spent to best advan- 
age — ^whether in enlarging its facilities, filling in quality 
;aps, strengthening its teaching staff, or rounding out 
ts curriculum. It is free to experiment with new types 
)f knowledge and new patterns of thought. In short, it 
s free to pursue excellence in its own way. 

President Pusey of Harvard summed it all up much 
)etter than I can when he said: 

"Private dollars built our colleges and universities, 
ind private dollars continue to make the difference in 
itting higher education to meet the requirements of the 
lew day, particularly in terms of quality and standard." 
j So it seems to me we face a kind of Hobson's 
ihoice. Nearly two thirds of the colleges and universi- 
lies in this country are privately supported, and with- 
out this support they must either become tax-financed 
Wblic institutions, or disappear from the scene alto- 
Jether. These schools produce about one third of our col- 
ege graduates; and the simple question is do we want 
md need these private institutions of learning? Do we 
Deheve that they are an indispensible part of our Ameri- 
::an way of life? Do we want to provide the financial 
jiid they require? 

I, for one, think that we do. And I believe that you 
hink so too. 

But what we can and should do for colleges is only 
me part of the story . . . one side of the coin. And 
he other is equally vital. What, may we ask, can and 



should colleges do for our society and our economy? 
What, for example, can other organizations, including 
businesses, expect from colleges? What can we hope 
will come from all the tuition paid, the contributions 
made and the help provided? What — in other words — 
will the end product be . . , the end product of all this 
time and effort? 

Having had the temerity to ask those questions, I 
should immediately rush for cover: for I am undoubted- 
ly venturing where angels fear to tread. But as we are 
deeply concerned with the financial input for our col- 
leges, may we not also have interest and concern for 
the product they turn out. 

Now, in advancing this input-output concept, let me 
hasten to add that it is not an opening gambit in a 
lecture telling professors and college administrators 
what they should do. That is not for me. In fact, when 
the going gets heavy in my job, I have only to read 
the latest news dispatches from California and console 
myself with the comforting thought that I don't have to 
run a university. 

So all I am trying to say is that — in a very real 
sense — society in general, and business in particular, are 
direct customers of the colleges. This year it is esti- 
mated that more than 700 thousand students will re- 
ceive degrees, and that five years from now this 
number will exceed a million. And it is also estimated 
that from 55 to 60 per cent of these graduates will ulti- 
mately find their way into the hundreds of thousands of 
businesses all over the land. 

Now, every one of these businesses has its own 
customers, most of whom are always asking for a bet- 
ter product; and — I might add — almost always getting 
it. So in our role as customers of the colleges, may we 
not also specify some of the qualities we hope and ex- 
pect to find in their product — that most important of 
all products: the educated man and woman. 

And among those qualities which come most readily 
to mind, the foremost, of course, is integrity — honesty 
of character, of purpose and of intellect; for that is 
the essential ingredient of every business transaction, 
whether it be a written contract, a handshake agree- 
ment, or an over-the-counter sale of a product or a 
service. 

Next in importance, probably, is the need for the 
inquiring mind, the adaptable mind and the innovative 
mind . . . the creative mentality that goes beyond the 
mere reference-book type of skill. 

We must have engineers, physicists, chemists, ac- 
countants, historians, biologists, social scientists, phy- 
sicians, lawyers and many, many others with highly 
specialized knowledge. But in looking for the men and 
women who will occupy managerial roles, we must also 
have a broad background of learning and training which 
goes far beyond single-minded points of view or nar- 
row concepts of knowledge and of life. 

To the manager of tomorrow, for example, a deep 
understanding of psychology or public affairs will be 
just as important, probably, as knowing the capabilities 
of the computer. He must be able to work with people, 
to understand them, to communicate with them, and 
to lead — not drive — them. 

These, then, are some of the basic qualities and 
characteristics required of the future managers in busi- 
ness, universities, philanthropic organizations, govern- 
ment, and a hundred other fields of activity. And I be- 
lieve that, on the whole, the product of our colleges to- 
day meets these specifications very well.

What Price College? 
— And What Product? 

But in a field of production and distribution — of in- 
dustry and business— there are other necessary attributes 
that are not always as easy to develop in the present 
college graduate— an understanding of work, a sense of 
responsibility, a balance of judgment, a blending of 
realism with idealism, and the patience and courage 
to persevere. In other words, discipline. 

The privilege of academic freedom in student and 
in teacher, which has been— and I hope will always re- 
main—the hallmark of higher education in this country, 
carries with it a recognition of the part that personal 
discipline must play in individual development; and the 
word itself brings to mind many thoughts of student 
actions that go far beyond collegiate capers. 

It is true that some of the expressions we see on 
the college campus border on the unruly and the un- 
couth, that some of the clothes in vogue seem ill-adapted 
to the purpose they are intended to serve; and that an 
excess of hair has become such a universal status sym- 
bol in the male collegian that a modern Delilah could 
hardly cope with it in a lifetime. In fact, one of the 
great ironies of the modern collegiate scene has been 
the almost simultaneous arrival of the beatnik and the 
stainless steel razor blade. But these things are merely 
signs of the times. 

More disturbing to our adult sense of propriety are 
the various forms of fanaticism, skepticism, spurious 
morality and addiction to artificial stimulation that we 
read about. And some of our young people, it must be 
said, have permitted themselves to be used as sub- 
servient tools in the furtherance of causes which they 
neither believe in nor wish to support. Some of these 
students have been rudely awakened to a dismal, morn- 
ing-after realization of the consequences of their own 
naivete — and others are due for a similar awakening. 

But these are the actions of a highly publicized — and, 
perhaps, publicity-seeking — minority which is no more 
representative of the great body of our college stu- 
dents than were the goldfish swallowers of yesterday. 

Representative collegian is stable 

My own experience in talking with a number of 
college audiences and student groups in recent years 
leads me to believe that the representative collegian 
of today is an able, thoughtful, discerning individualist 
with remarkably high potentials. He wants to stand on his 
own feet, review his own check points, blast his own 
way through our teachings and dispense with a few of 
our "sacred cows," if you please. And I find no fault 
with that. 

In these rapidly changing times, it seems to me 
that one of the qualities most to be desired in the 
product of our colleges is a restless discontent with things 
as they are, so long as it is also a constructive dis- 
content. It requires little intelligence to be against the 
established order and little time to tear it down; but it 
takes a great deal of wisdom to decide what you are 
for, and an infinity of patience to build a new and 
better order in its place. 

The other day, a friend of mine was talking with 
a young woman who worked in the Office of Economic 
Opportunity in connection with the poverty program. 



She explained that she was one of a small group s^ 
described as idealists who were graduates of Michiga 
State and who had gone to Washington a couple of yeai 
ago in the hope of changing things for the better. Bi 
all the other members of her group had quit their jot 
and now she was doing the same, because— she sai( 
rather bitterly — "The government will never change." 

"But." said my friend in surprise, "you didn't expec 
to change it overnight, did you? These things take tin- 
and patience." To which she replied, very simply, "W 
don't have time." 

And that, perhaps, is characteristic of what is S' 
aptly called the "now generation" of today. Yet with thi 
great strides medical science is making, this generatio 
will have more time on this earth than any which pn 
ceded it. 

So by all means give us this quality of disconten 
but with it let us have constructive purpose, responsib; 
judgment, and — above all — the patience to persevere i 
the shaping of change. 

World of business can challenge the idealis 

And may I add at this point that nowhere else 
change occurring so rapidly and so significantly toda 
as in the field of production, both industrial and agi 
cultural. Here is where a genuine revolution is takir 
place — not a revolution of destruction, but a revoli 
tion of dynamism which affords abundant and che 
lenging opportunities. 

Granted, the world of industry and business is ni 
for every college graduate: but to those who have tf 
will to compete and to back their ideas and their jud 
ment against the acid test of results, I would say: Hei 
is where the action is. 

Now, there is one other characteristic which abounc 
in the student body today ana which is much to 1 
desired in the business world; and that is a deep co 
cern for the welfare of their fellow man. Idealism ar 
the desire for selfless service are more prevale 
among the youth of this generation, I believe, than the 
have ever been before. But too often this idealist 
striving towards new social, cultural, and intellecta 
goals finds expression merely in disdain for things rrn 
terial. 

What seems to be lacking is the ability to distinguir 
between "material welfare" and "materialism" in tJ 
despised sense in which that word is often used. TI 
social worker who takes the production of others an 
dispenses it among the needy is undoubtedly perforr 
ing a humanitarian service; but was not an equally e' 
sential service to humanity performed by those wl 
produced the goods in the first place? 

It is true that these goods were produced for prof 
They had to be; for profit — or the expectation of profit 
is the source of all the complex and costly tools 
production that brought these goods into being. It is al 
true that the men who produced these goods worked f 
wages to support themselves and their families ai 
to educate their children. And it is even true that tl 
social worker collected a salary; and that in New Yo 
not long ago some of these dedicated workers went o 
on strike for higher pay and smaller case loads. 

Yes, it is true that man must work for gain in tl 
vale of tears; but his greatest satisfaction and mc 
rewarding sense of achievement comes, I believe, fro 
the knowledge that he has created something that wi 



20 



snrich the lives of his fellow men — something that they 
vant or need. It is here in the productive sector of our 
lociety that the food is grown, the products made and 
he war on poverty is being waged. It is here that we 
jenerate the resources which make possible the social, 
•ultural and intellectual advances that all of us seek, 
•"or before there can be the great society, there must 
le the great economy. And the heart of our great econo- 
ny is the market place . . . the world, if you please, of 
iroduction and distribution. 

Dr. Robert Hutchins writes: "The production and 
[istribution of goods is a public service of the first im- 
lortance.' And the late Dr. Carter Davidson, president 
f the Association of American Colleges, said: "Today, 
imerica is a business civilization. More than any civili- 
ation that ever existed upon this globe, the businessman 
3 central to the nature of America; and the whole busi- 
ess system is central to the American scheme." 

But if these statements be true, how can we hope 
3 move ever farther towards a destiny of excellence un- 
;ss the graduates of our colleges and universities are 
quipped — not only intellectually, but psychologically — 
or leadership in the world of business? 

Today it is reported that 91 per cent of business 
xecutives have attended institutions of higher learn- 
ig; that 76 per cent are graduates, and that 31 per 
ent have advanced degrees. And tomorrow the demand 
jr the best that our colleges can produce will be much, 
luch greater. But will our colleges be able to meet this 
emand? 

Since the days of early Greece, it has been the incli- 
ation among intellectuals to frown upon the market 
lace— to regard it as a kind of necessary evil, and 
le habitat of basely motivated men. And among many 
f the graduates of today this attitude appears to per- 
ist. 

But if these young idealists are really concerned 

bout poverty and unemployment, where will they find 

greater opportunity for service than in the world of 

usiness, which provides jobs for some 70 per cent of 

le nation's civilian work force? 

If they would improve the lot of the disadvantaged 
linorities who lack the educational and vocational quali- 
cations to perform superior tasks, how can they come 
) grips with this problem better than by turning to 
usiness as a career: for it has been estimated that— 
holly apart from the substantial sums that businesses 
onate to education— they spend in the neighborhood of 
h bULion dollars a year in the training and develop- 
lent of their employees: and about one-third of this 
3es for formal training and education. 

• . . man must work for gain in this 
ale of tears; but his greatest 
itisfaction . . . comes, I believe, 
1 the knowledge that he has created 
3mething that will enrich the 
ves of his fellow men ..." 

And finally, if these youthfiU idealists are dissatisfied 
ith the market place as it is today, then the only intelU- 
mt course, it seems to me, is for them to get inside 
where they can study the inner workings of its com- 
ex mechanisms and bring their innovative minds to 
;ar upon ways by which to strengthen its weak points, 



broaden its usefulness, and otherwise shape the course 
of the change that is occurring in our business system 
every day. To shun it merely because, like all other 
human institutions, it has its imperfections is neither 
realistic nor socially useful. 

It is to be hoped, then, that the teaching fraternity, 
in its daily and extremely influential contacts with these 
college students, will recognize that engaging in busi- 
ness and production is a proper calling, highly honorable 
and highly demanding in skills and in disciplines. 

It is to be hoped that business— which is a principal 
source of all our material welfare— will be recognized 
as a prime benefactor of mankind, if for no other rea- 
son than that it provides a systematic way whereby 
people may work together to benefit their neighbors as 
themselves. 

It is to be hoped that talented youth will be guided 
towards business— and the useful and exciting life which 
it can afford— rather than away from it. 

In short, is it imposing upon academic freedom to 
ask our teachers for an even-handed break for the mar- 
ket system and that the product of our colleges be pos- 
sessed of an economic understanding of the reasons for 
—and the results of— the market place? I do not believe 
that it is. 

So in concluding these reflections on the reasons for 
supporting our colleges and the kind of product we 
might reasonably expect from them, may I offer one 
final thought: 

To my way of thinking, the matrix of our society is 
the matter of freedom. We have been, and basically we 
still are, by nature and by inclination, members of 
a free society. To remain such is our abiding hope. 

liut freedom is not divisible. To the extent that one 
group of our citizens is fettered, so too will the free- 
doms of others be diminished. The universal lesson which 
has been taught by all the totalitarian governments 
which have appeared on the stage of history in our 
lifetime is that academic freedom is among the first 
to go. along with economic freedom; and that religious 
freedom soon follows. 

So it seems to me that the college communities of 
America— and I include the members of the student 
bodies as well as the faculties— have everything to gain 
by keeping all facets of freedom, and everything to lose 
by surrendering any one of them. 

Each turn of the wheel that brings less freedom, 
more restrictions, more controls, and more prohibitions 
and compulsions brings less freedom for everyone. So 
I think it is not only necessary for the pursuit of intel- 
lectual excellence, but the profound moral responsibility 
of all of us. to claim and actively defend the freest possi- 
ble atmosphere for faculty and students in these cultural 
centers we call colleges. 

For these colleges will supply our leaders in the ex- 
acting days to come. These colleges will train and pre- 
pare those leaders for their heavy responsibility. And 
if we want this leadership to be strong, balanced, and 
capable of facing our national problems, then I say, 
let it be trained in the humanities, in the sciences and 
in the arts, in the new and in the old. But let it be 
trained mainly and most forcefully in freedom. 

Let us then support generously that which we be- 
lieve in— support i if for no other reason than as a mat- 
ter of self-interest And by this voluntary action we 
shall be reinforcing our most precious possession: the 
freedom which has been our American touchstone of 
success.

STUDENTS PLEDGE §14,000 

The students have pledged more 
than $14,000 toward the campaign to 
assure a Ford Foundation grant. 

In announcing the results Student 
Campaign Chairman Sam Rush, of 
Meridian, said the student drive had 
officially ended but that additional 
pledges were expected. Special proj- 
ects designed to raise money for the 
campaign are planned during the 
spring, he said. 

The student effort will augment the 
national campaign to raise $3,750,000 
for Millsaps before June 30, 1969, the 
deadline set by the Ford Foundation 
for matching its $1,500,000 grant on a 
two and a half to one basis. 

The students' $14,000 pledge guar- 
antees $5,600 of the $1.5 million under 
the Foundation's terms. Enrollment 
this year is approximately 925. 

Mr. Rush, a junior chemistry 
major, was appointed chairman of 
the campaign by Student Body Presi- 
dent Jerry Duck, of Purvis. Mr. Rush 
said that the students wanted to be 
a part of the national effort and were 
eager to see the challenge met. 

STUDENT WINS WW GRANT 

Five Millsaps students were recog- 
nized by the Woodrow Wilson Fel- 
lowship Foundation this year, one re- 
ceiving a year of graduate education 
with tuition and fees paid by the 
Foundation. 

Susan Finch, Gulfport senior, who 
plans to work toward a Masters de- 
gree in English and to enter the field 
of college teaching, brought the total 
number of Millsaps graduates who 
have received Woodrow Wilson grants 
to 29. The total number awarded in 
the state, including this year, is 84. 

Only eight students attending Mis- 
sissippi institutions won grants this 
year. Millsaps still claims more than 
a third of all recipients even though 



she accounts for only 10% of the lib- 
eral arts degrees awarded in the 
state. 

Four Millsaps students were given 
honorable mention and will be rec- 
ommended to graduate schools and j 
other fellowship agencies. i 

Millsaps ranks second among all 
colleges in Arkansas, Tennessee, Ken- 1 
tucky, and Mississippi in the per-i 
centage of its graduates receiving! 
awards since the Woodrow Wilson! 
program began and sixth in the num-| 
her of graduates selected. 

CHOIR TOURS IN STATE 

Because fourteen of its members' 
will make a USO tour of the Carib- 
bean Command this summer, the 50- 
voice Concert Choir confined its tour 
to Mississippi this year. 

The a cappeUa choir, directed by 
Leland Byler, spent the spring holi- 
days giving concerts in churches and! 
high schools throughout the state. Ini 
addition to the twelve concerts sched- 
uled by the complete choir, the four- 
teen - member group performed in 
six high schools during the eleven- 
day tour. 

Last year's tour took the Millsaps 
choir into Mexico. This year, how- 
ever, officials decided to confine the 
spring tour to the state in order to 
acquaint the state with one of its 
products and because of the forth- 
coming overseas tour. 

Past tours have taken the Singers 
to Denver, Colorado, for a perform- 
ance for the General Conference of 
the Methodist Church, to Washington, 
D. C, to the Great Lakes area, and to 
Atlanta to record for the Prbtestant 
Hour. The choir has performed with 
the Memphis Symphony by invitation 
three times and with the Jackson 
Symphony twice. 

Selection of the Troubadours for 
overseas tours is a high honor, ac- 
cording to officials. The unit was one 
of only six chosen to make European 
tours in 1964 and one of fourteen se- 
lected for overseas tours this 
summer. The group was offered a 
tour of the Far East in the fall of 1964 
but declined because of school re- 
quirements.

ATHLETES HONORED 

An alumnus and a student were 
honored at the awards banquet spon- 
sored by the Jackson Touchdown Club 
in March. 

Fred W. McEwen, '34, was present- 
ed the Distinguished American Award 
by the Central Mississippi Chapter of 
the National Football Foundation and 
Hall of Fame. Mr. McEwen recently 
retired as assistant superintendent of 
the Jackson public schools. 

Senior Ted Weller, of Chatham, was 
presented a scholar-athlete award in 
recognition of his outstanding athletic 
record and high scholastic standing. 

He was one of eight Jackson area 
high school and college seniors to be 
honored by the Central Mississippi 
Chapter of the National Football 
Foundation and Hall of Fame. 

Mr. Weller, a starting end with the 
Majors, has also been awarded a Na- 
tional Collegiate Athletic Association 
graduate fellowship. He was one of 
twenty-six recipients of the $1,000 
grants in the nation and one of thir- 
teen in the college division. He is the 
first athlete in the state to receive an 
award of this type. 

The 6'1", 195-pound geology major 
has an overall 2.22 average based on 
a three-point system. 

TOURNAMENT BIGGEST 

Millsaps was host to debate teams 
from 37 colleges and universities in 
January at its annual invitational de- 
bate tournament. It was the biggest 
tournament in the history of the 
event. 

Some 130 teams from schools in 
seven states participated in the two- 
day tournament. The number repre- 
sented more than twice as many 
teams from almost twice as many 
schools as last year. 

The Millsaps tournament is based 
on elimination rather than points or 
achievement record. Trophies were 
awarded to the two top teams in the 
men's division, women's division, and 
junior division; to the top four in- 
dividual debaters; and to winners in 
extemporaneous speaking and oratory. 

Topic debated was the official in- 
tercollegiate subject, "Resolved: that 
the United States should substantially 
reduce its foreign policy commit- 
ments." 

MISSISSIPPI GREEKS CONTRIBUTE 

Millsaps is the beneficiary of a de- 
cision by Mississippi Greeks to repay 
'the country for some of its bounty. 

The Alpha Omega Society of Mis- 



sissippi presented President Benjamin 
B. Graves with a check covering the 
proceeds of its Greek pastry sale as 
a contribution to the Ford Foundation 
matching funds campaign. 

Designating its project Operation 
Payback, the Alpha Omega Society 
said it hoped to repay the community 
for its contributions to the Greek cul- 
tural and religious segment of the 
community. Education is one of the 
main projects but other worthwhile 
endeavors will be assisted as well, 
according to Society members. 

The recent sale, an annual event 
which its sponsors hope will become 
semi-annual, netted $401.94. The 
money will help to meet the Ford 
Foundation's financial requirements 
accompanying its grant. 

The contribution actually amounts 
to $562.72, since the $401.94 insures 
$160.78 of the Ford grant. 

CHAIRS ESTABLISHED 

Alumni have established the Vernon 
Lane Wharton Scholarship Fund and 
the J. B. Price Chair of Chemistry. 

The Wharton Scholarship is in 
memory of the former professor of 
history and alumnus. Dr. Wharton, 
'28, who was married to the former 
Beverly Dickerson, '42, died Septem- 
ber 7, 1964. 

Dr. Wharton had been dean of the 
College of Liberal Arts at the Uni- 
versity of Southwestern Louisiana for 
eight years at the time of his death. 

The Price Chair is being established 
in memory of the long-time head of 
the Chemistry Department. Also an 
alumnus, Dr. Price died November 8, 
1963, after thirty-three years of serv- 
ice to Millsaps. 

The Price Chair is a special project 
of the doctors and dentists of the 
Jackson area. 

According to Alumni Association 
Executive Director James J. Livesay, 
"Alumni and friends can give to these 
funds which honor two of Millsaps' 
most competent and respected pro- 
fessors." 

CAMPUS MOVIES AVAILABLE 

The first movies about Millsaps 
since 1953 went into production last 
fall and are now available to alumni 
clubs, churches, schools, and civic 
organizations. 

The two 17-minute films use much 
of the same footage but are different 
in approach. One is aimed at student 
recruitment and the other is designed 
to interest adults in the school and its 
goals. The student recruitment version 



is entitled "Not a Number" and the 
development film uses the Ford 
Foundation campaign theme, "Toward 
A Destiny of Excellence." 

The movies were produced by the 
Protestant Radio and Television Cen- 
ter in Atlanta. Officials of the firm 
told college representatives they con- 
sider the film among the best they 
have done. Rick Krepela wrote and 
directed them and John Sammons was 
in charge of filming. 

Alumni interested in having the 
films shown for any of the above- 
named groups should write to the De- 
partment of Public Relations. A 
month's notice should be allowed and 
requests should specify whether stu- 
dent recruitment or development ver- 
sion is preferred.

When Giving Can Save . . . 

Meeting The Challenge -While Retaining Income 



By Barry Brindley, Assistant to the President 



The four primary types of gifts which the Ford 
Foundation will allow as matching are: 

1. Outright gifts of cash. 

2. Outright gifts of marketable securities at their 
market value at the time of the transfer. 

3. Gifts of cash or marketable securities subject 
to a life income interest if they are irrevocable gifts 
to the College. 

4. Other assets (real property, materials, equip- 
ment, art objects, books, etc.) provided they directly 
benefit the College's educational program. 

It is item number three which is of particular in- 
terest here. What it means is that you may irrevoc- 
ably donate cash or transfer securities to IVIillsaps 
with the agreement that Millsaps would return the 
income from such property to you for life. You would 
receive a charitable deduction for the present value 
of the remainder interest which will ultimately pass 
to Millsaps. Based on the Internal Revenue Service's 
actuarial tables, the older you are, the higher will be 
the percentage of the transferred property that will 
qualify for a charitable deduction. The total amount 
which will qualify for a charitable deduction is the 
portion of the gift which qualifies as a Ford Founda- 
tion matching gift. 

The income from an arrangement of this type 
continues to be taxable, but you receive an immediate 
tax benefit for the amount of the charitable deduc- 
tion. Another important consideration is that the donor 
gains a significant benefit from the favorable capital 
gains treatment for securities which he has trans- 
ferred if those securities have appreciated in value. 
No capital gain is incurred at the time of the transfer 
of the securities to the College. The donor continues 
to receive the income for life, and, although the re- 
tained income causes the transferred assets to be 
includible in the donor's estate at the time of death, 
the College receives all of such assets and an estate 
tax charitable deduction is allowed the donor. 

Let's look at an example of how this works: 

Mrs. Jones, a widow, aged sixty-five, has assets 
worth approximately $300,000. She receives an an- 
nual income from these assets of approximately 
$15,000. Like many persons who live on income from 
fixed assets, Mrs. Jones is concerned, and rightly so, 
with her financial security. She believes it would be 
impossible for her to make more than a nominal gift 
to Millsaps. 

Actually, she is able to make a very significant 
gift and not interrupt her income pattern at all; in 
fact, she may be able to increase her annual income 
slightly. All this can be done quite simply and at the 
same time make possible a matching gift from the 
Ford Foundation. 

Let's say that Mrs. Jones transfers $30,000 worth 
of her assets to Millsaps College. In return the Col- 
lege will pay to her income from these assets for the 
rest of her life. 

In this situation, the Internal Revenue Service 
tables indicate that, if the donor is sixty-five, the 



present value of the remainder interest is $19,974. 
This means that for income tax purposes Mrs. Jones 
has made an immediate gift of $19,974 to Millsaps. 
The Ford Foundation will match this gift with $7,989.60 
(40'7c), which the College will receive immediately. 

Now look at what will happen to Mrs. Jones' 
annual income because of this gift to Millsaps: 

Current regulations say that a taxpayer may de- 
duct up to 30% of his adjusted gross income for gifts 
to educational institutions. In Mrs. Jones' case, this 
means she can deduct up to $4,500 each year for this 
purpose. The regulations also state that contributions 
in excess of the 307c limit may be carried forward into 
the next five tax years. Mrs. Jones will be able to 
deduct all of the $19,974 gift as charitable contribu- 
tions, assuming that she has no other charitable con- 
tributions. The $4,500 maximum annual deduction will 
mean an annual tax savings of $1,620.00. Over a five 
year period the total tax savings would amount to 
$7,191.00. Remember, too, that any capital gains tax 
which may have been incurred by an outright sale 
has been totally avoided. 

Mrs. Jones has effectively increased her annual 
income by approximately $1,620 for a period of four 
years, and $710 in the fifth year. 

Another very important consideration for Mrs. 
Jones is the Federal Estate Tax. As mentioned 
earlier, the $30,000 gift made by Mrs. Jones during 
her lifetime can be deducted from her estate as a 
charitable contribution with a resultant estate tax 
savings of $9,600, assuming the value of the assets 
transferred remains substantially the same. 

A total of $16,791 in taxes has been avoided. This 
makes the actual cost of the $30,000 gift to Millsaps 
$13,209. 

Mrs. Jones has made possible a gift to Millsaps 
of 537,989.60 ($30,000 plus $7,989.60 from the Ford 
Foundation) at a cost to her of only $13,209. 

If you would like to have direct and personalized 
assistance in the making of a gift to Millsaps, here 
are some of the people you can call upon. 

1. Your lawyer. It is your own lawyer who should 
be consulted on all legal matters involved in the mak- 
ing of a gift to Millsaps. 

2. A trust officer of a bank. Many of the methods 
of making a substantial gift to Millsaps call for the 
services of a bank as trustee. 

3. Your life insurance agent. He is qualified to 
inform you regarding the value of your policies and 
also regarding the various procedures of assignment 
and change of beneficiary. 

4. Your accountant. Some gifts might be related 
to your business, or may consist of shares of your 
business. Your accountant may be the best one quali- 
fied to advise you on the value of shares, possible 
effect of a gift on operations, etc. 

5. A representative of Millsaps College. The 
Development Office stands ready to provide every 
possible assistance. The College also retains a pro- 
fessional tax adviser who will be happy to work with 
you if you desire.

Presidejitial Views 

1)1/ Dr. Benjamin B. Graves 



I wish that it were possible for me to speak personally to eachi 
reader of the Millsaps College Magazine about the great oppor-' 
tunities — and, I might add, some of the perplexing problems — 
facing those of us in higher education today. Perhaps many of youi 
read the cover story in the June 23, 1967, issue of Time on thei 
plight of private higher education which featured Kingman Brew- 
ster, President of Yale University. If so, you have gotten an in- 
sight into the financial crises confronting our nation's colleges, ofi 
which two thirds are now private. If there is a dilemma in an: 
institution with the resources of Yale, one can surmise the situation! 
in our area and in an institution such as Millsaps. 

Despite this continuing financial peril, however, all is not] 
black. In my President's Report for the 1966-67 academic session II 
reviewed our 75th academic year. Let me cite a few excerpts from! 
this report. 

First, Millsaps had an all-time high enrollment of 925 students. 
We also have an all-time high in our summer school at this veryi 
time. 

During the year we held the most outstanding series of con-^ 
vocations which the College has ever known, and I am pleased to 
report that approximately 10,000 alumni and friends joined ouri 
faculty and student body as guests during these occasions. Among; 
our distinguished speakers were Dr. Myron Wicke, General Secre-! 
tary of the Division of Higher Education of the Methodist Church; 
Robert McNamara, Secretary of Defense; Roger Blough, Chair-j 
man of the Board, United States Steel; the Honorable Governor: 
Buford Ellington, an alumnus and the Governor of Tennessee; Dr.; 
William Mallard, Chairman of the Department of the History of 
Christianity at Emory University; and William Adams, President 
of St. Regis Paper Company. Few colleges in the nation can boast! 
such a host of distinguished personages on its campus during the 
course of an academic year. ^ 

Our graduates once again did extremely well in competition; 
for much-sought-for graduate fellowships and scholarships. Ap- 
proximately half will go on to graduate or professional programs; 
this fall. As just one example, we will have fifteen students enter- 
ing medical schools. I 

All of the foregoing are pluses. With such a good year behind; 
us, it is tempting to sit back and relax. Nevertheless, continuing: 
pressures remain with us in the areas of faculty recruitment and 
retention, maintaining a student body with the interest and ability 
to profit from a Millsaps education, and the always pressing pro- 
blem of resources. 

In the Challenge Grant Program, we have just passed the] 
$2.5 million mark in terms of pledges and other commitments. Thej 
Ford Challenge Grant Program has been at the forefront of allj 
activity at the College this year. We are bringing the main effortj 
in the Jackson area toward a close and will be moving in thai 
next few months to other areas of the state and nation. I 

I hope that we shall soon see the time when each of our 8,000 
alumni and a continually increasing number of persons, firms, and 
other constituents will be responding to Millsaps' needs each year. 
Such a development will signal our becoming not only a regional; 
center of educational excellence but an institution which can hold; 
her head high in any sector of the nation.

At a "Brain" School . 



Where Do Athletics Fit In? 



Right by the side of mental development, 
experts say. 

The old axiom has been that brawn is even 
less compatible with brains than beauty is. 

Millsaps has long sought to disprove the 
theory, not always too successfully if success is 
measured in terms of victories on the scoreboard. 

A few years ago the decision was made to of- 
fer some financial assistance to youngsters who 
showed promise of developing into scholarly ath- 
letes, or athletic scholars. 

The result is that athletes who might have 
bypassed Millsaps in the past in favor of the more 
affluently endowed sports programs of the large 
universities can now afford to take a look at Mill- 
saps. They can decide how important athletics is 
to be in their college lives — whether it's to take 
up the major part of their time or a secondary 
role to education. 

To be sure, there hasn't been a complete 
about-face in the sports outlook at Millsaps. Not 
many — well, none — ■ of the All Big Eight first 
team members are choosing Millsaps over Ole 
Miss or State. But some of the fellows in the 
smaller conferences are, and so are some of the 
honorable mention winners in the bigger leagues. 

The idea behind the athletic scholarships is 
to provide the same sort of compensation for abil- 
ity as might be offered for talent in another area, 
such as leadership or art or music or drama or 
debate or writing. No one has ever frowned on 
assisting in developing these skills. Athletic ability 
is also the product of hard work, long hours, and 
strong determination to succeed. 

There's one important point to be made here: 



These athletes, the ones who choose Millsaps, 
have to meet the same scholastic standards as do 
the other Millsaps students. The standards in- 
include a minimum score of 20 on the American 
College Test. 

Which returns to the point made in the begin- 
ning: Millsaps officials are convinced that physi- 
cal development is important as well as mental 
development. There's something in the official 
purpose of Millsaps to the effect that the College 
wants to provide an atmosphere conducive to the 
development of "physical, intellectual, and spiri- 
tual capacities." 

President Benjamin B. Graves put it more 
bluntly in his first speech at Millsaps. He said, 
". . . we could become a generation of keen minds, 
weak knees, flat chests, and bottoms which spread 
beyond normal chair dimensions." 

What President Graves advocated first and 
foremost was an individual physical fitness pro- 
gram. "Find an area of interest where you can 
develop some physical skill and preferably one 
which you can carry with you into your adult- 
hood," he said. 

So the sports program at Millsaps has a 
multiplicity of purposes: competition in inter- 
collegiate sports, development of recreational 
skills, intramural competition, physical education, 
and vicarious enjoyment through watching others 
perform. 

It's a job which Athletic Director James A. 
Montgomery takes very seriously. How well he 
has succeeded Major Notes hopes to demonstrate 
on the following pages. We will offer some con- 
crete evidence that brains and brawn do indeed 
mix well and provide a most acceptable product.

The Scholar-Athlete 



Ted Weller proves it's possible to be both 



Ted Weller is a tall, powerfully built, deeply 
tanned blond who already has a graduate scholar- 
ship for use after he completes his work at Mill- 
saps next January. 

What distinguishes him from the many other 
Millsaps students who receive graduate awards 
is the type of scholarship he has. 

Ted is one of twenty-six college and university 
students in the nation to receive National Col- 
legiate Athletic Association graduate scholarships 
this year. 

He got it on the basis of his academic record 



(he had an overall 2.22 at the time of the awards), 
rank in class, and demonstrated football ability 
and participation. 

Ted is a starting end with the Majors. He also 
participates in a wide variety of intramural 
sports, ran track one year, likes to water ski. 

He's a member of Omicron Delta Kappa and 
Theta Nu Sigma, was tapped into the Social 
Science Forum, is active in the M Club. He is rush 
chairman for Kappa Alpha. Last spring he was 
campus campaign manager for one of the candi- 
dates for governor of Mississippi in a Pre-Law 
Club-sponsored mock election. 






Left; Weller is stopped in a battle 
with the Harding Bisons. 
Above: No grind -with the books, he 
still makes good grades. He interrupts 
a study session for a break ivith a 
fraternity brother. 



Edward C r o z i e r Weller received 
one of the first of the Diamond Anni- 
versary Scholarships in football. He 
was then at Mississippi Delta Junior 
College, where he had spent most 
of the previous season sidelined with 
injuries. The year before he had been 
given honorable mention in All-State 
honors. 

Back at Glen Allen Consolidated 
School he had earned thirteen letters 
in athletics. 

But sports weren't 1115 only inter- 
est. He was valedictorian of tiis class. 



president and vice-president of the 
Beta Club, edited the annual. 

At junior college, where he was a 
pre - engineering student, he won a 
dramatics award, was co-editor of 
the paper, played basketball and 
baseball as well as football. 

He came to Millsaps because he 
had decided he wanted a career in 
journalism and had "heard the Eng- 
lish Department was good. He found, 
however, that he really -didn't 4ike 
English. So he moved to geology as 
a major.

Lonely end receives pass. 

Ted's father died when Ted was ten 
years old. His mother, Mrs. Neal O. 
Weller, of Chatham, Mississippi, had 
the responsibility of rearing him and 
his older brother and sister. 

The result in Ted's case is a 6'2, 
190-pounder with charm and person- 
ality to match his good looks, with 
modesty, with no trace of snobbery, 
and with consideration for others. 

This summer Ted, who just turned 
21, is getting some practical experi- 
ence in geology by working for Delta 
Exploration Company. He'll do his 
graduate work in geology, doesn't 
know yet just what he'll do. "I'll get 
my Master's and then see what the 
job opportunities are," he says. 



Ted Weller: 
Scholar-Athlete 

Not an egghead and not a meathead, 
Weller is a good example of a fine 
mixture of brains and brawn. 





Ted is an officer in his fraternity, lives at KA house.

Weller, far left, carried flag in KA march prior to Old South Ball. 




Last year's game with Sewanee was the highlight of 
Ted's sports career. It was a dramatic game, with the 
Majors pulling an upset victory over an old, powerful 
rival. Says Ted, "We had lost to them for several years 
and were trailing badly at the half. Then we beat them 
40-28. It was something to remember." 

Ted thinks that what hurts the Millsaps sports pro- 
gram most is "an inherited attitude that sports just 
aren't important at Millsaps, that scholastic ability is 
all that counts." 

Then again there's the financial aspect. Ted is an 
advocate of the training table. "Some people who have 
to buy their own food don't eat as much as they should, 
as much as they would at a training table. I think what 
we need most is a training table. 

"There is an idea around that Millsaps is too hard. 
I think some very good athletes are lost because they 
think they can't pass the work at Millsaps and that ath- 
letics aren't emphasized enough. 

"But the hardness is over-emphasized. 

"There's an advantage to having smart athletes, and 
they can be smart athletically without being scholastical- 
ly inclined. 

"I don't disrespect people who are sports-minded, 
the big-time enthusiasts whose major interest is sports, 
or the so-called meathead. They're showing interest in 
a field that they are most capable in. Some people like 
to distribute their interests; others are most suited to 
keeping their interest in one field."

WhaKs So Important 
About Physical Fitness? 

Regular exercise which places a reasonable work load on the muscles 
and vital organs is essential to proper human development, experts say. 



By James A. Montgomery 
Director of Athletics 

At a large state university not long ago one third of 
the freshmen failed to meet minimum standards for 
strength, agility, and flexibility. Eighty-five per cent did 
not make satisfactory scores on a health knowledge test. 

At an Eastern university the proportion of entering 
freshmen making satisfactory scores on a physical 
achievement test declined from fifty-one per cent in 1947 
to thirty-four per cent in 1960. 

These facts are a serious indictment of our way of 
life. 

Why such a strong statement about a seemingly 
secondary matter? 

Because good health and physical fitness are logical 
and necessary starting points for the pursuit of excel- 
lence in anything. Physical vitality promotes intellectual 
vitality. Physical vigor and skills enhance personal re- 
sources for social and civic endeavor. 

In short, physical fitness is an essential aspect of a 
balanced and productive life. That's the reason for con- 
cern when so many young people fail to display adequate 
development of physical fitness, and when so many 
adults seem unaware of its importance. 

Theodore Roosevelt said, "Our country calls not for 
the life of ease, but for the life of strenuous endeavor." 
Despite the convenience and ease of modern existence, 
life on the cutting edge of society is still arduous and 
challenging. The population explosion, technological ad- 
vances, and the rising tide of human hopes have cre- 
ated complex and urgent problems. To be able to solve 
them, we must be prepared to act with energy, imagina- 
tion, and courage — a fact which is especially true of col- 
lege graduates. 

The nation looks to its institutions of higher educa- 
tion as the main source of enlightened leadership. Our 
national security, world peace, and progress in human 
affairs depend on the extent to which colleges and uni- 
versities develop in their students the capacity for vigor- 
ous and informed action. 



We can no longer afford to consider anyone fully ed- 
ucated until he knows how — and is thoroughly motivated 
— to keep himself in the best possible physical condition 
at all times. Achieving this end for all students should be 
one of the primary goals of every college. 

A report prepared by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, 
Inc., entitled "The Pursuit of Excellence: Education and 
the Future of Annerica," stated, "There is no more 
searching or difficult problem for a free people than to 
identify, nurture and wisely use its own talents. Indeed, 
on its ability to solve this problem rests, at least in part, 
its fate as a free people. ... A free society nurtures the 
individual not alone for the contribution he may make 
to the social effort, but also . . . for the contribution he 
may make for his own realization and development. . . . 
Students are preparing themselves for a world which 
. . . will be shaped by societies which have placed at the 
service of their most cherished values a firmness of pur- 
pose, discipline, energy, and devotion." 

In preparing young men and women for leadership, 
the college or university cannot ignore its obligations to 
provide for their physical well-being as an important ele- 
ment of their total fitness. 

There is abundant evidence that regular exercise 
which places a reasonable work load on the muscles and 
vital organs is essential to proper human development 
and optimum performance. It sharpens perceptual abili- 
ties, improves coordination, and pushes back fatigue 
limits, so that the capacity for both work and recreation 
is greater. 

It has been proved that proper exercise is effective 
in the relief of tensions, in delaying the aging process, in 
rehabilitation following illnesses and accidents, and in 
preventing and controlling cardiovascular diseases, 
obesity, and other chronic ailments. 

The stresses of collegiate life have been intensified 
in recent years. Competition to get into and stay in col- 
lege is keener. Class loads are heavy and subject mat- 
ter is increasingly difficult and complex, requiring more 
study and research. Many students have part-time jobs. 



10 




and some are heavily involved in extracurricular activi- 
ties and campus social life. 

Simply maintaining good health and emotional sta- 
bility in the face of all these demands requires strength, 
stamina, and intelligent personal habits. 

Regular exercise also produces desirable psycholog- 
ical results. It develops grace and economy of move- 
ment and improves posture and overall appearance. It 
also develops the ability to perform skillfully in sports, 
dance, and other activities, yielding satisfaction and self- 
esteem. 

According to Robert Sorani (Circuit Training), "In 
years past, the activity required by an individual and 
his specific performance of daily tasks was often ade- 
quate to maintain a desirable level of fitness. This is not 
so today, with the machine rapidly replacing man in the 
performance of energy-expending tasks. More and more, 
man must rely on some form of 'extra' recreational ac- 
tivity to meet his basic needs for exercise." 

The emphasis on physical fitness in recent years has 
given rise to numerous and varying definitions of the 
term. In the Handbook of Physical Fitness Activities 
Donald Casady has pointed out some of the variations in 
definitions given by physicians, physiologists, and physi- 
cal educators. He himself concludes that fitness is "the 
ability of the body to accommodate efficiently and ef- 
fectively a variety of vigorous physical tasks." 

But a physician and researcher has said that "phy- 
sical fitness implies that the body systems are capable 
of carrying on their activities satisfactorily." And anoth- 
er has defined physical fitness as "the ability for respi- 
ration and circulation to recover from a standard work 
load." 

Another definition is that "the fit person is one who 
is free of limiting and debilitating ailments, who has the 
stamina and skill to do the day's work, and who has 
sufficient reserve of energy not only to meet emergen- 
cies but to provide zest for leisure time living." 

Recreational skills should be used to help attain 
physical fitness. Sorani points out that the common cry 
concerning physical activity is lack of time. "The diffi- 
culty of fitting regular periods of activity into an already 
overcrowded schedule must be recognized," he says. 
But, he adds, "the habit of adequate exercise is as im- 
portant to good health as one's sleep, one's work, and 
one's food." 

Sorani concludes: "If you are to be totally prepared 
for the tasks that lie ahead, to enjoy that quality of fit- 
ness that will allow you to live most effectively within 
your potentialities, the key lies in the nature of your 
daily living. There is no magical formula for fitness, no 
intensive six-week program guaranteed to last a life- 
time. Fitness is transitory; it must be worked for con- 
tinuously, and the only program of real value is a life- 
long one. If a total fitness is to come at all, it must be a 
product of total living and result from a clear under- 
standing of a broad concept of fitness and an acceptance 
of the idea that fitness is important." 

". . . the college or university cannot ignore 
its obligations to provide for physical well- 
being as an important element of total fit- 
ness."

Where do athletics fit inj' 



THE MILLSAPS PROGRAM: 

Somefhing 
for Everybody 



A four-sided program' involves 
intercollegiate competition, 
physical education, recreational 
sports, and an intramural program. 




Coed Ann Byrd demonstrates archery form. Archery 
is a recreational skill which can be enjoyed through- 
out life. The Millsaps program is aimed at helping 
students develop such skills, preparing them for 
active adulthood. 



Physical education, for nine out of ten college grad-' 
uates, was a two-hour credit course in which the main' 
discipline was having to change clothes to report to the^ 
gym and change back again for the next class. 

The fact that the course was intended to increasej 
strength and endurance, improve motor skills and health: 
practices is somehow overlooked — and often not accom-j 
plished. I 

If this is true of Millsaps graduates, it's not because; 
Department Chairman James A. .Montgomery and his; 
staff haven't tried: Nobody spends longer hours on the 
Millsaps campus than Dr. Montgomery, and probably 
nobody gets to know the students as well. 

According to one expert, the physical education pro- 
gram should "provide each student with an opportunity: 
to develop skill and understanding in a variety of sports; 
activities that will serve him throughout life. In a broad' 
view of education, physical education has unique oppor-j 
tunities in developing desirable character and social! 
traits as well as defined responsibilities toward the phy- 
sical development of the individual." 

What this boils down to at Millsaps is a four-sided 
program: intercollegiate competition, physical educa-j 
tion, recreational sports, and the intramural program, j 

Millsaps is a member of the National Collegiate Ath-j 
letic Association. Teams compete on an intercollegiate; 
basis in football, basketball, baseball, tennis, track, golfj 
and archery. 

The intercollegiate football and baseball programs; 
are guided by Head Coach Harper Davis, with assistances 
in football from Assistant Coach Tommy Ranager. Davis: 
is a former Los Angeles Rams-Chicago Bears-G r e e n; 
Bay Packers player. Ranager is a Mississippi Statei 
standout. 

Last year the football team had its best record ini 
some ten years: 4-3-1. Playing in an area where like 
competition is hard to come by and only in the last few| 
years beginning to offer athletic scholarship aid, the; 
Majors have not fared too well for the last decade or so 
But, surprisingly enough, the record over the nonsub 
sidized years was not so bad as might be thought. There 
are more wins than losses on the books. 

This year the Majors are scheduled to meet Sewanee,; 
Randolph-Macon, Georgetown, Livingston State, and; 
Maryville, all at home, and Southwestern of Memphis,; 
Harding, and Ouachita. To use a well-worn expressionj 
(how many ways can you say you expect to win?), th^ 
outlook is good. 

Dr. Montgomery adds the duties of head basketball 
coach to his many others. Here again losses have out- 
numbered wins in recent years. According to one local 
sports writer, the problem goes farther back than the; 
college level. "There just aren't many good basketball 
players in Mississippi," he says. And of course the oneS; 
there are are promptly snapped up by universities which: 
can afford more remunerative scholarship assistance. 

But, again, hopes are high in this game, too. For the; 
past few seasons the losses have been by remarkably: 
close scores. If the Majors can just manage to get on, 
the other side of the close score, things will look rosy. 

Miss Mary Ann Edge completes the physical educa-j 
tion staff, handling the program for women and most of| 
the golf coaching duties. 

According to Dr. Montgomery, things are looking; 
up in track, baseball, golf, and archery. He points outi 
that the tennis team was third in the state this year,' 
making its usual good showing. 



12 



The intramural program provides competition in 
such sports as badminton, volleyball, tennis, basketball, 
Softball, track, and golf. Competition is usually between 
teams representing the social groups. 

"Here," says Donald Casady,* "is the opportunity 
for the student to use to practical advantage the instruc- 
tional knowledge he has gained. He will be a better play- 
er and teammate thereby. Later, after graduation, he 
rtfill have acquired sports interests that he can carry on, 
and so will gain the recreational satisfactions and the 
lealth and social advantages that go with them." 

The Department of Physical Education and Athlet- 
es offers fourteen academic courses, covering such 
;hings as basic recreational skills, golf, bowling, tennis, 
physical education for the elementary grades, theory of 
ligh school coaching, athletic officiating, and hygiene. 

Two hours of physical education are required of all 
students. As Casady points out, "those who most need 
physical education do not take it." 

Casady says that students should be encouraged to 
maintain a balance between team and individual sports 
n their selections, which is the reason for the fourth 
area of the Millsaps athletic program, recreational 
sports. 

This is the activity which officials expect to have 
■neaningful carry-over for students after graduation. De- 
velopment of skill in and enjoyment of such games as 
jolf, tennis, and archery can be beneficial throughout 
ife. 

'Handbook of Physical Fitness Activities 



To quote Casady again, "Both (team and individual 
sports) have their values. In favor of individual sports 
is the fact that most persons are physically unable 
to participate in vigorous team sports for a very pro- 
longed period in adult life. Also it is easier after school 
days to pick up one or two opponents for a friendly 
match than it is to get two teams together. On the other 
hand, freshmen students should not overlook the bene- 
fits to be derived from team sports. Being members of 
a team assists them in making new friends and in de- 
veloping sociability. They learn to cooperate with other 
individuals and identify themselves as a part of a group 
with a common cause." 

Dr. Montgomery has stated the department's 
philosophy as follows: 

"All auxiliary programs of an educational institution 
have as their underlying aim the education of the par- 
ticipant. This is as true of the intercollegiate athletics 
program as it is of drama, art, or debate. And it is 
certain that lessons in the facts of life are administered 
to every athlete who competes in a well-founded pro- 
gram. 

"The knowledge derived from intercollegiate athlet- 
ics at Millsaps is found primarily in the lessons taught 
about the subjects of competition and sacrifice. The ab- 
sorption and understanding of these two subjects are 
necessary for the individual athlete to realize the funda- 
mental privilege of Americans to enjoy the fruits of self- 
achievement. The essence of self-achievement is the 
competitive character of American life in which the bet- 
ter man advances to the larger responsibilities." 




Artist's concept of athletic complex is very modernistic, but will be changed to incorporate Athletic Department's 
ideas. Progress is being made toward acquiring up-to-date facilities, including a badly needed swimming pool. Some- 
iay soon, maybe ....

Where do athletics fit in? 



Alumni Athletes Organize 
To Promote Interest, Assistance 



Active groups bock coaches, Millsaps 
sports program, support athletic programs. 



On July 24, 1962, a group of alumni 
met at Millsaps to form the Athletic 
Boosters Club. 

The purpose of the organization 
was "to form a bond between all 
former athletes, coaches, and enthu- 
siasts of sports who are interested in 
the intercollegiate athletics program 
of Millsaps College. 

"To assist the coaching staff in lo- 
cating and recruiting good student- 
athletes; 

"To take a significant part in the 
annual Homecoming festivities, espe- 
cially those events having to do with 
athletics; and 

"To disseminate the good news 
about the good works of the College 
and the athletic program." 

On Alumni Day this year Dudley 
Culley, '24, of Jackson, was elected 
president, with James Plummer, '25, 
of Covington, Louisiana, named vice 
president and Jim Montgomery, Mill- 
saps' athletic director, re-elected sec- 
retary-treasurer. 

The Athletic Boosters Club annual- 
ly sponsors a chicken fry for mem- 
bers of the football team. Discussed 
at the spring meeting were plans for 
an athletic awards banquet at which 
all awards in sports would be pre- 
sented. 

The M Club also hopes to organize 
an active alumni group. According 
to President David Martin, the or- 
ganization would "give former M 
Club members an opportunity to sup- 
port athletics at Millsaps and to re- 
new and continue their relationship 
with other ex-athletes." 



Martin says eligibility for the Alum- 
ni M Club will be available to any 
one who has been a member of the 
Millsaps M Club at any time. 

He describes the benefits of the 
Alumni M Club as follows: 

1. Upon graduation, active M Club 
members will receive a free pass 
to all athletic events held at 
Millsaps, good for a period equal 
to the number of years the in- 
dividual lettered in a varsity 
sport. 

2. The Alumni M Club will appoint 
a committee to work in conjunc- 
tion with a committee appointed 
by the active club to select one 
person each year to become a 
member of the Millsaps Athletic 
Hall of Fame. 

3. The Athletic Boosters Club is 
maldng plans to sponsor a com- 
prehensive awards banquet each 
spring. Awards for all sports will 
be presented at this time. All 
alumni and active M Club mem- 
bers will be invited to attend the 
banquet. 

The obligations of membership, 
Martin says, would be as follows: 

1. To promote sportsmanship, con- 
geniality, and friendly associa- 
tion among its members for the 
advancement of Millsaps College. 

2. To aid in promotion of interest 
among alumni in Millsaps Col- 
lege athletics and to further its 
welfare. 

3. To assist in the recruiting of fu- 
ture Millsaps athletes. 



Season Tickets Offered 

The following letter has been 
mailed to some 2,000 Millsaps alumni 
who reside in the Jackson area: 
Dear Alumnus: 

If you didn't see last fall's Home- 
coming encounter with Southwest- 
ern won by the Majors 26-0, you 
missed one of the finest games 
played on Alumni Field in many 
years. 

Few of you saw the Majors in 
their stunning come - from - behind 
victory over Sewanee on the moun- 
tain last year. Trailing 20-28 at i 
halftime, the fired-up Majors ral-j 
lied to a 40-28 trouncing of the Ti- 
gers. The meeting of these teams 
takes place in Jackson this season. 
Homecoming this year will be Oc- 
tober 7, and the opponent will be I 
Randolph-Macon College (men, not 
women). Other opponents to be 
met on Alumni Field are Sewanee, j 
September 23; Georgetown, Sep- 
tember 30; Livingston State, Octo- 
ber 21; and Maryville, November; 
4. 

There are indications of better' 
days ahead in other sports, too. 
The personnel of the basketbalL 
and baseball teams is approaching 
that of good competitive quality. 
As usual, the tennis team showed; 
well (3rd place in the state) and 
track, golf, and archery made big' 
gains. 

Beginning this year with our newj 
season ticket plan, you can see any- 
and all sports events played at 
home. For just $10.00, the enclosed 
ticket will entitle you and your 
spouse, or one other member ofi 
your family, to admission to thai 
five football games and all othei^ 
home athletic contests for the 1967-; 
68 season. For your convenience, aj 
stamped envelope is enclosed for 
your check or for return of the 
ticket. 

Of course there are many other 
good reasons for you to visit the 
campus besides sports events. I| 
hope we can look forward to seeing 
you often during the new school 
year. 

The letter is signed by James A., 
Montgomery, Director of Athletics. 

Dr. Montgomery stresses the fact 
that the offer is open to any former 
student of Millsaps, whether he re- 
ceived a letter or not. Write to Dr. 
Montgomery, Millsaps College, Jack- 
son, Mississippi, 39210. i

The Spectator 



Obviously not everyone who likes football can make 
the team, or even wants to. 

There are only eleven members to a team and oven 
with offensive and defensive units and second and third 
strings, still only about five per cent of a student body 
the size of Millsaps' would be involved. 

Not everybody is physically equipped or has the abil- 
ity to qualify. Like, girls hardly ever make the team, at 
least not at the high school or college level. Like, these 
days if you're less than six feet tall you don't have a 
prayer for getting one of the five spots on the basketball 
team. 

So what happens to all those sports devotees who 
can't become actively involved in organized activity? 

They become spectators. They watch others do the 
work, take the bruises, display their skill; and then they 
shower the athletes with adulation and hero worship as 
their reward. 

Speaking of a special breed of spectator, the super- 
fan, George Plimpton has written, "The superfan has a 
primary need for identification with the football team: 
sitting on the bench, hanging around the locker room, 
calling the football stars by their first names — these are 
all wish-fulfillments" ("The Celestial Hell of the Super- 
fan," Sports Illustrated, September 13, 1965). To a lesser 
extent this applies to most spectators. 

The vicarious enjoyment of the spectator is as much 
a part of the overall sports program as the development 
of the various teams. Not only does it afford satisfaction 
for the spectator, but it helps finance the various phases 
of the program. Besides, athletes are inveterate and in- 
curable show-offs. What's the fun of popping a basket 



from center court if nobody sees and applauds? An ath- 
lete seldom works to develop his particular skill or skills 
unless he thinks he'll have an opportunity to display it 
or them — a fact which is true of any ability, whether 
it's acting or singing or writing or whatever. 

Can you imagine what would happen if all the ath- 
letes in this country suddenly went on strike? What 
would the millions of armchair sportsmen do? 

Wives would be harassed by husbands and sons on 
those Saturday and Sunday afternoons when they could 
ordinarily be depended upon to be glued to the television 
screen. Customers would suddenly find themselves faced 
with a surly salesman who hadn't been able to vent his 
emotions and tensions on the umpire during the week- 
end. Many whose only hours in the fresh air are gotten 
at sports events would never feel the sun. With all the 
spectators suddenly turned loose on the world, with noth- 
ing to occupy their time and attention, chaos would en- 
sue. 

So spectatoritis is not so bad as it's sometimes made 
out to be. Many college athletic directors would like for 
it to become more infectious and contagious, especially 
when they view the small crowds which turn out for 
some events and the sometimes apparently indifferent 
attitude of many of the college family. 

All this may seem somewhat paradoxical, to say 
that so many people are enthusiastic spectators and that 
yet crowds are often small. Perhaps, to be perfectly hon- 
est, what we should be saying is that Millsaps crowds 
are often small; we're sure that almost any small col- 
lege could say something of the same thing. 

Spectators, unless they're particularly avid, are high- 
ly selective. They'll take pro ball over collegiate, and 
Southeastern Conference battles over most other games, 
and often armchair ease and a camera's eye view over 
stadium discomfort, crowd-generated excitement, and 
personal following of the action. 

One reason for his selectivity is that the spectator 
often is seeking another vicarious satisfaction, that of 
being identified with a winner. Speaking on a much 
broader scale, Sargent Shriver put it this way in a 1963 
issue of Sports Illustrated: "... sport is vital in build- 
ing national pride and spirit. Through it the smallest 
and weakest of nations can compete with the great pow- 
ers, and through the exploits of their athletes achieve a 
sense of dignity and achievement otherwise denied." 

Shriver continued, ". . . national pride, community 
spirit, individual expression and individual self-expres- 
sion, a sound body and a sense of fair play — are im- 
portant components of that elusive concept, human 
character." 

So, for those who do find excitement in following 
their particular teams, winners or losers, some provision 
should be made. Vicarious participation in sports activi- 
ties, while not exactly conducive to muscle toning, does 
provide an outlet for stresses and strains which build up 
under the pressure of academic demands and the tedium 
of day-to-day routine. And it does allow one to identify 
with the success of his team. 

As is often noted, leisure time will increasingly be- 
come a problem as work days and work weeks get 
shorter. Sports events are and will continue to be a part 
of the solution. 

Whether the team wins or loses, the spectator is im- 
portant to the team members. Win or lose, the effort of 
the team is important to the specator. Win or lose, both 
are winners in the end.

FORD DRIVE OVER $2.5 MILLION 

The Ford Foundation grant - match- 
ing drive stood at $2,522,531 in cash 
and pledges on the first anniversary 
of the receipt of the grant, with only 
about $1.25 million left to go and two 
years in which to secure it. 

Announcement was made on June 
27, 1966, that Millsaps was the first 
college in Mississippi to be recog- 
nized by the Ford Foundation as a 
potential "regional center of excel- 
lence" and the recipient of a $1.5 mil- 
lion grant toward development as 
such a center. 

With the drive to match the grant on 
a 2''2-to-l basis officially only four 
months old — it was launched by a 
giant convocation featuring Secretary 
of Defense Robert McNamara last 
February — officials are pleased with 
the results to date and certain that 
the entire amount will be secured. 

"We've already raised more money 
than any private institution in Mis- 
sissippi has ever gotten in a cam- 
paign," says Development Director 
Barry Brindley. "We've proved that 
there is considerable wealth in Mis- 
sissippi for philanthropic causes. 

"Our success will have tremendous 
implications for higher education in 
this state," he said. 

The campaign to raise $3.75 mil- 
lion is the largest ever undertaken 
by any private institution in Missis- 
sippi. 

Using the theme "Toward A Des- 
tiny of Excellence," the campaign 
has been highlighted by a $500,000 
gift from alumnus Robert Mason 
Strieker of Woodville and one for 
$300,000 from E. H. Bacot of Pasca- 
goula. 

Experts say that the success of any 
drive depends on a small number of 
large gifts. Millsaps has so far re- 
ceived 43 gifts above $10,000 each. 

In addition to the two named above, 
there are six for $50,000 or more, nine 
in the $25,000 to $50,000 range, twelve 
between $15,000 and $25,000, and four- 
teen from $10,000 to $15,000. The big 
gifts total $1,705,755. 

With two years remaining for the 
securing of the matching funds under 



the Ford Foundation stipulations, offi- 
cials are making plans to extend the 
drive throughout the state. Efforts so 
far have been concentrated in Jack- 
son. 

Money from the drive will be put to 
its first use this summer with the 
renovation of the Christian Center 
and the improvement of drama facil- 
ities. Contracts were let in mid-July 
for the construction, which will in- 
clude air-conditioning the building, 
enlarging the stage and dressing 
room facilities, and addition of class- 
room and seminar area. 

Other goals of the campaign are 
the construction of an academic com- 
plex which will house a fine arts cen- 
ter for music and the graphic arts 
and a library expansion, the addition 
of volumes for the library, and the 
strengthening of the faculty by im- 
proving the salary scale. 

Various constituencies are giving 
support to the "Toward A Destiny 
of Excellence" drive. Alumni have 
given a total of $1,095,784. The Mill- 
saps Associates' total stands at $384,- 
950, and gifts from faculty and staff 
amount to $49,758. The Board of Trus- 
tees has pledged $305,475, and corpo- 
rate gifts total $274,805. 

A number of prominent IMississip- 
pians have given their support and 
leadership to the Millsaps drive. 
George B. Pickett and James B. 
Campbell, of Jackson, are serving 
as national general chairman and 
vice-chairman. 

Other leaders participating include 
J. W. Underwood, of Jackson, leader- 
ship gifts chairman; John T. Kim- 
ball, of New York City, foundation 
gifts chairman; R. B. Lampton, of 
Jackson, canvass chairman (non- 
alumni); Robert L. Ezelle, of Jack- 
son, alumni general chairman; Tom 
B. Scott, Jr., Jackson area chairman 
(alumni); Nat S. Rogers, of Jackson, 
Board of Trustees solicitation com- 
mittee chairman; Joe N. Bailey, Jr., 
of Coffeeville, Millsaps Associates so- 
licitation chairman; and Elbert 
S. Rush, Jr., student solicitation com- 
mittee general chairman. 

R. Baxter Wilson and W. Merle 



Mann, both of Jackson, served as 
chairman and co-chairman of the 
"Toward A Destiny of Excellence" 
convocation, to which numerous citi- 
zens gave time and effort as mem- 
bers of various committees. 

"Our appreciation to all the people 
who have helped us can never be 
adequately expressed," said Mr. 
Brindley. "They've given time, influ- 
ence, and plain hard work to assure 
the success of our campaign." I 

When the grant was announced last 
year President Benjamin B. Graves 
called the gift "the most significant 
national recognition ever given to! 
iVlillsaps" and added, "From a long- 
range point of view it could turn out 
to be one of the most important 
things that has ever happened to high- 
er education in Mississippi." 

Millsaps was one of eight privately 
supported institutions to receive the 
Foundation's Special Program in Ed- 
ucation grants last summer. Only 80 
of some 800 private institutions ofi 
higher education have received such! 
awards. A total of only 16 Southern! 
schools have received the grants, in-, 
eluding the eight last summer, when] 
the Foundation concentrated on thej 
South. 

CHRISTIAN CENTER RENOVATED 

Renovation of the Christian Center,, 
the first tangible result of the Ford 
Foundation grant-"Toward A Desti-j 
ny of Excellence" drive, will get un- 
derway this summer. 

The renovation will utilize $200,000] 
from the campaign funds and a gov-; 
ernment grant of $74,000. The federal 
money comes from a program whichj 
assists in the renovation and con- 
struction of classroom area. j 

The construction will be the f i r s t^ 
phase of a complete modernization of] 
fine arts facilities. An academic com-! 
plex housing a fine arts center for 
music and the graphic arts is one ofi 
the main projects of the campaign. ! 

The Christian Center will continue] 
to house the drama program, and ai 
major part of the construction will 
involve expanding and improving the, 
drama facilities. 

In addition to air-conditioning fori 



16 



the entire building with the excep- 
tion of the stage, which the Drama 
Department requested not be includ- 
ed, plans call for enlarging the stage, 
raising the ceiling over the stage to 
allow for the flying of equipment, con- 
version of classrooms and offices on 
each side of the stage to dressing 
areas, and the addition of new stage 
and lighting equipment. 

Other changes to be made include 
the conversion of the wells on each 
side of the auditorium for utilization 
as office and seminar space; the con- 
version of a lounge into offices; and 
better grouping of offices and class- 
rooms by departments. 

COUNTISS IS AA PRESIDENT 

Dr. Eugene Countiss, '30, of New 
Orleans, heads a slate of five officers 
of the Alumni Association for the 
year 1967-68. 

Announcement of Dr. Countiss' elec- 
tion to the presidency of the Asso- 
ciation in ballot-by-mail voting was 
made at the annual Alumni Day ban- 
quet in May. He took office on July 
1. 

Also elected were three vice-presi- 
dents and a secretary. Vice-presiden- 
tial winners were the Reverend Wil- 
liam F. Appleby, '50, of Corinth, Mis- 
sissippi; Dr. J. Manning Hudson, '40, 
of Jackson; and Miss Bethany Swear- 
ingen, '25, of Jackson. Mrs. O. R. 
Rivers (Dot Melvin, '46), of Jackson, 
was voted into the secretarial post. 

Dr. Countiss won over Joseph E. 
Wroten, '45, of Greenville, Mississip- 
pi, for the top office in the Alumni 
Association. He succeeds Dr. Ray- 
mond Martin, '42, of Jackson, who 
continues on the Executive Commit- 
tee as a past president. 

A noted gynecologist and obstetri- 
cian. Dr. Countiss is a former vice- 
president of the Alumni Association. 
He was the recipient of an Alumnus 
Citation at the recent "Toward A Des- 
tiny of Excellence" convocation. 

LIN CHAIR ESTABLISHED 

A $50,000 gift to the "Toward A 
Destiny of Excellence" campaign has 
been made as the initial contribution 
for the establishment of the J. Reese 
Lin Chair in Philosophy. 

Jackson business executive and 
alumnus Merle Mann has designated 
his gift to the campaign for the es- 
tablishment of the Chair honoring 
Professor Lin, who was a member of 
the faculty from 1912 to 1940. Offi- 
cials expect additional contributions 
to bring the endowment to the de- 
sired minimum of $200,000. 

The Lin Chair is the seventh to be 



endowed. A recent addition was the 
Joseph B. Price Chair in Chemistry, 
which Jackson alumni in the field of 
medicine are conducting a campaign 
to underwrite. 

The Lin Chair honors a teacher who 
was called by the late Dr. M. C. 
White "the outstanding personality in 
all Millsaps history." Dr. Lin occu- 
pied at Millsaps what he humorously 
called not a chair but a bench. He 
taught philosophy, ethics, logic, eco- 
nomics, and political science, with 
occasional excursions into the fields 
of English and religious education. 

In a Founders Day address in 1960 
which was later published in Major 
Notes, Dr. White, who was himself a 
Millsaps institution, characterized 
Professor Lin as follows: "His knowl- 
edge was great, but his character 
was greater, and his own great quali- 
ties he stamped indelibly on those 
with whom he came into contact. He 
was a great teacher not only of the 
intellect but of the spirit. He gave to 
his students a sense of values, a set 
of principles, a philosophy of life." 

Dr. Lin received his Bachelor of 
Arts degree from Emory and his 
Master of Arts from Vanderbilt. He 
also studied at Columbia and was a 
Sage Fellow at Cornell in 1910-12. He 
received the honorary Doctor of Hu- 
manities degree from Millsaps in 1940. 

He served as superintendent of 
schools in Wesson and Natchez, Mis- 
sissippi, and Alexandria, Louisiana. 
He was professor of philosophy and 
education at Central College in Mis- 
souri in 1909-10. 

Dr. Lin was a master of the 
proverb. The campus newspaper for 
a time carried one of his proverbial 
sayings in each issue. 

Dr. White summarized his descrip- 
tion of Dr. Lin by saying, "Millsaps 
students enjoyed his personality, his 
wisdom, and his wit. No Millsaps 
personality has been more influen- 
tial. He was himself an institution 
and a tradition." 

Dr. Lin was responsible for getting 
Millsaps into the Southern Associa- 
tion of Colleges and represented the 
school in the Association for 23 years. 

Other Chairs which have been es- 
tablished include the W. S. F. Tatum 
Chair of Christian Education, the Al- 
fred Porter Hamilton Chair of Clas- 
sical Languages, the Milton C. White 
Chair of English Literature, the Ben- 
jamin Ernest Mitchell Chair of 
Mathematics, and the Dan White 
Chair of Economics. 

Officials have set $200,000 as the 
minimum for the endowment of a 



Chair. The only Chair which has the 
desired minimum is the Dan White 
Chair, established by Mr. White, a 
New Orleans businessman and alum- 
nus, to encourage the study of the 
free enterprise system. 

President Graves said in announc- 
ing the Lin Chair that the College 
encouraged alumni and friends to 
make significant contributions to 
these funds honoring people who have 
been closely connected with Millsaps 
and whose influence shaped Millsaps. 
He said it was hoped that gifts would 
bring the endowment of each Chair 
to the minimum $200,000 level. 

Dr. Graves said, "The Ford Foun- 
dation Challenge Grant provides an 
especial opportunity for donors to 
multiply the effectiveness of their 
gifts at this particular time. For ex- 
ample, a gift of $250,000 would qualify 
the College to receive an additional 
$100,000 from the Ford Foundation." 

One of the aims of the campaign 
currently underway is the strengthen- 
ing of faculty salaries. Dr. Graves 
has strongly encouraged the estab- 
lishment of Chairs in each of the 
departments as a means of attract- 
ing and retaining outstanding teach- 
ers. 

"In addition to honoring the person 
for whom it is named," he said, "a 
Chair provides added incentive for 
exceptional teachers. The income from 
an endowed Chair can be used to 
provide a more attractive salary, 
funds for research and for further 
study." 

MRS. GOODMAN RETIRES 

Advancement to the rank of pro- 
fessor, a silver engraved tray, a book 
of letters of appreciation, and thirty- 
two years of memories and rich ex- 
periences are the product of Mrs. 
W. F. Goodman's teaching career. 

Mrs. Goodman retired this year as 
associate professor of English. 

Announcement of her promotion to 
professor was made during the Com- 
mencement program on June 4. 

Earlier she had been honored by 
the Alumni Association for her many 
contributions. A silver tray was pre- 
sented to her at the Alumni Day ban- 
quet. Alumni Association President 
Raymond Martin noted her insistence 
on thorough understanding of the ele- 
ments and structure of literature and 
the lasting influence she has had on 
her students. 

Mrs. Goodman joined the Millsaps 
faculty in 1935. She is a graduate of 
Agnes Scott and received her Mas- 
ter's degree from Tulane.

NOVELIST RECEIVES CITATION 

Novelist Cid Ricketts Sumner was 
presented an Alumna Citation on 
Alumni Day in recognition of her con- 
tributions in the field of literature. 

The principal speaker at the Alum- 
ni Day banquet, Mrs. Sumner was 
presented the citation by President 
Graves. She had been scheduled to be 
recognized at the "Toward A Destiny 
of Excellence" convocation in Febru- 
ary but was unable to make the trip

Mrs. Sumner, whose father was one 
of the first members of the Millsaps

achieved national fame through the 
film industry and television. 

One of her first books, Quality, was 
the basis for the movie "Pinky." The 
book has been published in France, 
Holland, Sweden, and Australia. An- 
other, Traveler in the Wilderness, is 
an account of her experience in run- 
ning the rapids of the Green and Colo- 
rado rivers with a nine-man expedi- 



tion. She was 65 at the time. The 
British Broadcasting Company pre- 
sented ten fifteen - minute readings 
from the book. 

Born in Brookhaven, Mrs. Sumner 
now resides in Duxbury, Massachus- 
etts. 

ENROLLMENT LARGEST 

The largest summer session enroll- 
ment in the school's history, 546 stu-

summer. 

Of that number, 208 are students 
from other colleges and universities 
throughout the nation who are visit- 
ing at Millsaps. The remainder are 
regularly enrolled Millsaps stu- 
dents, entering freshmen, and special 
students. 

The enrollment includes, in addition 
to college students accelerating their 
course of study or making up credits, 
teachers who need additional credits 
for certification and other adults tak- 
ing special courses. 

The largest number of visiting stu- 
dents, 76, represents the University 
of Mississippi. Mississippi State Col- 



lege for Women is represented by I 
fourteen students. Twelve are Mis- i 
sissippi State University students, : 
nine are from Belhaven, and nine

CARTER PRAISES MILLSAPS 

Pulitzer Prize-winning editor Hod- 
ding Carter has called Millsaps "per- 
haps the most courageous institution 
in the nation." 

Speaking at a conference on the fu- i 
ture of liberal arts colleges at Con- 
verse College in Spartanburg, South 
Carolina, Mr. Carter was quoted in 
a United Press International news re- 
lease as follows: "Carter said Mill- 
saps has had a difficult time in Mis- 
sissippi because it has a 'tradition of 
relative liberalism.' 

" 'It lets its students and its pro- 
fessors speak their minds,' he said, 
'and it occasionally has suffered for 
doing so.' 

"Carter said Millsaps has 'survived 
and attracted the best student body 
in Mississippi.' | 

" 'It has a higher percentage of 
what I consider the right people than • 
probably any other school in the , 
South,' Carter said. 'They go because j 
Millsaps challenges their souls.' { 

"Carter noted that Millsaps recent- 
ly won a $1.5 million matching grant 
from the Ford Foundation. He said 
this has resulted in many Mississip- 
pians appreciating the college for the 
first time. 

" 'There is not an institution in the 
country that cannot learn something 
from this little school in Mississippi,' 
Carter said. 'It is a candle burning | 
in the darkness.' " I 

Mr. Carter is publisher of the Delta 
Democrat Times in Greenville, Mis- 
sissippi.

When Giving Can Save

Assistant to the President 



What Is the Carry-Over? 



In 1964 the federal government changed many 
features of the regulations governing income tax. One 
of the most important changes was the creation of 
the five-year carry-over provision, which allows the 
excess portion of certain contributions to be carried 
over into one or more of the next five succeeding 
taxable years. Before 1964 this was not possible. 

Federal law currently states that an individual 
who itemizes his deductions may deduct up to 20% 
of his adjusted gross income for gifts to any qualified 
charitable organization. However, this limitation is 
increased to 30% when as much as 10% of the ad- 
justed gross income is given to educational institu- 
tions, tax-exempt hospitals, or churches. 

As an example of this, let's say Mr. Jones has 
an adjusted gross income of $20,000. He will be able 
to deduct up to $4,000 (20% of $20,000) for gifts to 
any qualified charitable organization. However, Mr. 
Jones could give $6,000 to a college this year (30% of 
$20,000) and the entire amount would be deductible. 
This is possible because the college qualifies for the 
extra 10%,. 

How does the carry-over work? 

There are several points to remember when con- 
sidering the use of the five-year carry-over provision. 
The main points are as follows. 

1. The total amount of contributions to the 30%- 
qualified type institutions (educational institu- 
tions, tax-exempt hospitals, and churches) must 
exceed 30% of the individual's adjusted gross 
income before a carry-over is possible. 

2. In subsequent years the first contributions to 
be counted are the ones actually made in that 
year to the 30% charities. The next to be taken 
into account are the carry-overs from previous 



years. The last in order are the contributions 
qualifying for only the 20% limitation. 

3. Because of the way in which the contributions 
must be accounted for in determining carry- 
overs, it is possible that the donor may actual- 
ly lose the deductions for contributions to those 
organizations which qualify for the 20% limita- 
tion only. 

An example 

Mr. Smith had an adjusted gross income of $50,000 
last year. He contributed $16,500 to Millsaps and $1,000 
to a private foundation. He can claim a charitable 
contribution deduction of $15,000 in 1965 and have a 
charitable contribution carry-over of $1,500 (excess 
of $16,500 over 30% of $50,000) to succeeding taxable 
years. No carry-over would be allowed for the $1,000 
gift to a private foundation. 

Because of the manner in which the tax regula- 
tions govern the accounting of charitable contributions 
deductions, it is clear that care should be taken to 
avoid losing deductions that qualify for only the 20% 
limitation. 

These pointers about only one phase of the cur- 
rent income tax regulations may prove helpful to 
you in planning your financial situation. We would 
hope also that it might prompt you to consider what 
part you can play in the Ford Foundation Challenge 
Grant Program. You will be surprised to see how 
economically a substantial gift can be made when 
proper attention is given to the tax regulations and 
their application to your situation. 

We invite you to send for our booklet on planned 
giving. It contains many illustrations of how our 
friends and alumni can assist us in a generous and 
lasting way and at the same time provide for family 
security. Just contact the Development Office, Mill- 
saps College.

Presidential Views 

1)1/ Dr. Benjamin B. Graves 



Among the many tasks of a college president is an effort t( 
maintain rapport and understanding among the institution'; 
multiple constituencies. Closely associated with this problem is thai 
elusive thing called "image." It has been said that one often get.' 
a mental image from a haphazard collection of trivia. Nevertheless 
public attitudes and responses toward an institution are often shap-, 
ed by these images, be they accurate or otherwise. 

Images are not only important to colleges but to governments, 
politicians, business firms, and to virtually every other segment ol 
our society. Abrahana Lincoln recognized this element in govern- 
ment when he said, "Public sentiment is everything; without it, 
nothing can succeed; with it nothing can fail." 

Perhaps the underlying reason for the acuteness of the imagery 
problem in the college setting is the much misunderstood issue of 
academic freedom. As one writer recently put it, "Academic free- 
dom is an essential element of any society which is committed 
to freedom. It is unthinkable that the American society could be 
characterized as enjoying freedom if our scholars and students 
were not free in the pursuit of knowledge, understanding, and the 
truth. Equally, it is inconceivable that in a closed system like that 
of the Soviet Union there could be even a pretense of academic 
freedom in the institutions of higher learning — thus academic 
freedom in the United States is an aspect of the whole commit- 
ment to freedom which characterizes what we call the American 
way of life." 

In this academic pursuit, there have been ageless conflicts 
between "town and gown." The first scholar to sense this conflict 
was Socrates. In the end. he resolved it by refusing to compromise 
his ideals of free inquiry and free expression and took his own 
life with poison. 

The probleiTi derives, I think, from the public's tendency to 
seize upon an isolated statement or incident and try to identify 
the entire college community with a point on the political spectrum. 
Those who do so overlook the true purpose of a college — to educate, 
not to indoctrinate. IVIillsaps is not now, nor does it intend to be, 
a political institution. A college, in fact, must remain a political 
neutral if it is to function effectively. We do seek to open the mind 
of the student and expose him to a variety of points of view. In 
the course of the last year, for example, our students have had an 
opportunity to hear a cross section of speakers, including former 
■Vice President Richard Nixon; Secretary of Defense Robert Mc- 
Namara; Senator Robert Kennedy; the Chairman of the Board of 
U. S. Steel, Roger Blough: the President of St. Regis Paper Com- 
pany, William Adams; Governors Paul B. Johnson and Buford 
Ellington. An invitation was extended to Senator Barry Goldwater, 
but it was declined. 

Perhaps the source of our difficulty has best been capsuled by 
Hodding Carter. Speaking recently to a national conference of col- 
lege presidents in Spartanburg, South Carolina, he said, "Millsaps 
lets its students and its professors speak their minds and it oc- 
casionally has suffered for doing so." Carter concluded his re- 
marks, however, with this heartwarming statement: "There is not 
an institution in the country that cannot learn something from this 
little school in Mississippi. It is a candle burning in the darkness." 

May I urge our alumni and other constituencies to think on 
these things and assist us in interpreting the concept of academic 
freedom to the general public.

To Insure Excellent Teaching 



Some years ago a questionnaire was mailed to Mill- 
saps College alumni on which this question (or a reason- 
able facsimile) appeared: What was the most significant 
thing about your years ai Millsaps? 

Almost without exception the replies were variations 
of this basic answer: I\Iy teachers. 

The role a teacher — the right teacher — plays in 
shaping a college student's life cannot be overestimated. 
A college student is in his most impressionable years, 
and a teacher represents, or should represent, the ulti- 
mate in what a human being should be: educated, warm 
and human, cultured, interested, helpful and consider- 
late. 

The right teacher. How many others there are who 
are underprepared, who are simply biding time until 
they can move on to bigger things, who are unable to 
Icommunicate what they do know, who find social activity 
'more exciting and more compelling than preparing for 
tomorrow's classes. 

A college must be selective in order to assure its 
students the kind of study guidance and, yes, inspiration 
they need. 

But how difficult it is to persuade good teachers that 
here is where they should plant their roots. What have 
we got that nobody else can offer? 

More money? Hardly. Even in low-ranking (salary- 
wise) Mississippi, Millsaps stands behind four state col- 
leges in average salary for full-time faculty. 

Don't misunderstand. Millsaps has some very good 
teachers. But this category includes some people who will 
be returning to graduate school for that all-important 
Ph.D. It lists some with the terminal degree who will 
decide that remuneration outweighs other factors which 
may have persuaded them to come here in the first 
place. Opportunities abound for such people, and finally 
become too tempting to be refused. 

And who can blame them? They've spent some 22 
years preparing themselves for a career, and a career. 



regardless of how altruistic, is also designed to earn one 
a living. The teacher's education has helped develop his 
taste for books, theatre, music, movies, lectures, travel 
— all of which are expensive. The years of preparation 
have sometimes been lean and hard, and one wearies of 
such a lot. One expects finally to be able to enjoy the 
profit of his investment. 

Millsaps has struggled to keep students saying that 
their teachers have meant much to them, to provide the 
kind of teacher described by an alumnus (a retired pub- 
lic school administrator) in a feature story recently: 
"My psychology and education professor was a person 
who knew problems and how to solve some of them. 
There was no unimportant question in his classroom. He 
was the master teacher in my whole experience, and he 
was the dominant factor in my Ufe." 

Faced with the problem of lack of endowment and 
resources adequate to make general salaries competi- 
tive nationally, IMillsaps has adopted an idea to assure 
at least one outstanding teacher in each department: en- 
dowed chairs. In essence, a chair is a fund sufficient to 
provide a return which will give the chair occupant at- 
tractive compensation. 

Such a fund should have a minimum of $200,000. Only 
one of the seven established so far has that amount. And 
there are 13 other departments in which a beginning has 
not even been made. 

Nevertheless, officials are hopeful for their plan. It 
is a start in the right direction, toward the time when 
all salaries are on the national level. One good teacher 
can inspire others in his department to increase their ef- 
fectiveness. One teacher's loyalty can perhaps influence 
others. 

The tragedy at Millsaps is in the number of out- 
standing teachers who have moved on. Any alumnus has 
a list of those who meant a great deal to him but who 
are now filling important positions elsewhere. As has 
been said, Millsaps is blessed with good teachers, but 
they must be given reasons to remain. 

Perhaps the chairs will help. 



The Men the Chairs Are Ho ding \ 


Richard Baltz came to Millsaps with an almost com- 
pleted manuscript for a textbook on business analysis, 
a Ph.D. in economics, and some fifteen years of teach- 
ing experience. He found a plan for curriculum revision 
in his department, but no steps had been taken to imple- 
ment it. He made some revisions of his own, set to work 
getting the whole thing going. 

Dr. Baltz, 37, is a native of St. Louis, Missouri. He 
attended Belleville, Illinois, Junior College, then entered 
Baylor University and the U. S. Air Force. He earned a 
Bachelor's degree in business administration, a Mas- 
ter's in economics and finance, his Ph. D. in economics. 

He earned membership in Beta Gamma Sigma, the 
economics honorary, in Omicron Delta Epsilon, and sev- 
eral economics associations, serving as president of the 
Ozark Economics Association. He has written papers, two 
correspondence courses in economics, some other 
articles. 

He is married, has one child. 


Gene Cain is another teacher who undertook mod- 
ernization of his departmental curriculum. His reorgani- 
zation centered around upgrading the program for up- 
perclassmen, allowing them to spend more time in re- 
search projects and seminars. 

The youngest of the chair occupants. Dr. Cain, 35, 
earned his BS degree at the University of North Carolina, 
his MS and Ph.D. degrees at Duke. He was an Esso Edu- 
cation Foundation Fellow at Duke. He came to Millsaps 
in 1980, became department chairman in 1963. 

After completing his education he went to work as a 
research chemist at E. I. DuPont de Nemours and Com- 
pany, remaining there two years. 

He holds membership in several scientific organiza- 
tions, has had papers published in the Journal of Organic 
Chemistry and the highly regarded Biochemica et Bio- 
physica Acta. 

He has been active in Baptist youth work, is an 
ardent gardener. He is married, has no children. 


If nothing else were in evidence about George Boyd, 
it would be enough to say that he persuaded Eudora 
Welty to become Writer in Residence at Millsaps. The 
presence of this distinguished lady of letters gave the 
school literary prestige as well as educational. 

Dr. Boyd, 49, is a native Kentuckian. He received his 
AB degree from Murray State College, his AM from the 
University of Kentucky, and his Ph. D. from Columbia 
University. His last year of study was under the 
auspices of a Danforth Foundation Teacher Study Grant. 

He began teaching in 1940, when he was an instructor 
in English at the University of Kentucky. He lectured in 
English at Hunter College in New York City in 1947-48. 
He has also taught at Memphis State University, Missis- 
sippi State University, and Southwestern Louisiana In- 
stitute. 

He has written articles and reviews for a number of 
scholarly publications. He holds membership in several 
organizations. 

An active Episcopalian, he is married and has three 
children. 


Sam Knox practically grew up at Millsaps, joining 
the faculty in 1949 when he was only 23. Now 41, he is 
one of the Millsaps veterans in number of years of serv- 
ice. 

He has held offices in the Mathematical Associa- 
tion of America and the Mississippi Teachers of Col- 
lege Mathematics. He has had papers published in 
Mathematical Monthly. His dissertation was presented 
at The Joint Statistical Meeting in 1962. 

His honors are many: He was awarded institutional 
teaching fellowships and a Southern Faculty Fellowship. 
He was named to Omicron Delta Kappa as well as sci- 
ence honoraries. 

Dr, Knox earned his BA and MA degrees in math at 
Ole Miss, his Ph. D. in statistics at Virginia Polytechnic 
Institute. He attended a National Science Foundation in- 
stitute on computers at Michigan College of Mining, has 
also studied at the University of Michigan. 

He is married to the former Dorothy Walker, has 
two children. 


Bob Bergmark seems to be moving even when he's 
perfectly still, a result, no doubt, of the great amount of 
activity going on inside his head. He is one of those 
teachers students advise each other to take at least one 
course under. 

Dr. Bergmark earned his AB degree in philosophy 
at Emory, his Bachelor of Sacred Theology degree and 
his Ph.D. in philosophy at Boston University. He entered 
the ministry after receiving his theology degree, came 
to Millsaps in 1953 after completing residency require- 
ments for the Ph.D. 

He has written a number of articles, reviews, and 
papers. He holds membership in the Metaphysical Soci- 
ety of America, the American Philosophical Association, 
The Mind Association. He has been president of the Mis- 
sissippi Philosophy Association. 

He is chairman of the Humanities Division as well as 
of his department. 

A native of Massachusetts, Dr. Bergmark, 46, is mar- 
ried, has three children. 


The list of academic honors won by Lee Reiff, topped 
by no less than Phi Beta Kappa, is impressive, to say 
the least. It also includes Omicron Delta Kappa, a Pepsi- 
Cola Scholarship, and two graduate fellowships. 

Dr. Reiff first came to Millsaps in 1960 on a tempo- 
rary appointment which was up in 1964. After a year at 
McMurry College in Abilene, Texas, he returned to Mill- 
saps as department chairman. He has also served as an 
assistant in instruction in New Testament at Yale Di- 
vinity School. 

A native of Kansas, the 38-year-old teacher earned 
his BA degree at Southern Methodist University, his 
Bachelor of Divinity at SMU, and his Master of Arts 
and Ph.D. degrees at Yale. 

He has served as minister of a Methodist church in 
Bakerville, Connecticut, and a Baptist church in Moosup, 
Connecticut. 

Dr. Reiff is married to the former Geraldine Long. 
They have two children. 





The Good Teacher: 

"has to be able to communicate his interest in his 
field, and in order to do this it would seem that he 
would need to have an interest in his students as 
individuals, as people, as fellow participants in the 
whole process of becoming fully human." 

The Good Teacher: 

"must certainly know his field, must be up to date 
in his field, but more than this he must be able to 
communicate his enthusiasm for the field as well 
as his concern for his students." 



A Good Teacher: 

DR. ROBERT E. BERGMARK 

The occupant of the J. Reese Lin Chair in Philo- 
sophy is a fine illustration of the type of teacher 
Millsaps hopes to assure for the faculty with its 
academic chairs. His words on this and the next 
few pages give some idea of his philosophy of edca- 
tion.

"I feel that it's not so much tangible 
rewards which influence teachers as 
a climate within which free inquiry 
is made possible. The teacher needs 
to be able to feel that he will be sup- 
ported in the free search for truth. 
The level of morale in a student body, 
in a faculty, related to salary con- 
siderations, is also related to the feel- 
ing that the school is being well ad- 
ministered as an institution of higher 
learning, that the persons who are 
making the decisions are up to date 
on what's going on in the academic 
world and are bringing about im- 
provements Ln the structure of the 
educational institution. I think we 
have this at Millsaps."

'My vocational choice was primarily a choice

ierions consideration to anything else."

rewarding the good teacher is 
to take him out of teaching and 
give him a position of admini- 
stration."

"There is an impersonal atmo- 
sphere in a large university that 
is quite difficult to overcome. Ii 
can be overcome, of course, ani 
the better people do overcome it, 
but the general atmosphere of th« 
large university tends toward be 
ing impersonal. There is a greater 
opportunity, I think, in a school 
like Millsaps to stress the personal 
and interpersonal aspects of the 
educational experience."

Chairman, Alumni Fund 



The Alumni Fund took a phenomenal leap 
forward this year when almost 1,000 more persons 
gave than responded to the 1965-66 Fund, the 
most successful campaign up to that time. 

This year's totals of 2,604 persons and $59,775 
compare quite well with the 1965-66 figures of 
1,611 and $54,757. 

These figures represent an increase in parti- 
cipation from 19'; in 1965-66 to 30% this past year. 

The Class of 1906 showed a 100% response. 
A great source of satisfaction to officials was 



the performance of the Grenada alumnae. The 
Grenada files are similar in size to some of the 
larger Millsaps classes. Grenada led Millsaps 
classes in number giving with 117 and came in 
second in amount given. 

Giving by Whitworth alumnae was also a 
source of pleasure. There are fewer of them in 
the files than Grenada alumnae, but their re- 
sponse was pleasing. 

Always looking ahead and hoping for bigger 
and better things, officials have set the goal for 
1967-68 at 3,000 donors giving $70,000.

DESIGNATED GIFTS FROM ALUMNI 

The concept of annual giving by alumni to the nation's colleges and universities is one of the corner- 
stones of support for higher education. It has been called the "bread and butter" money which keeps 
these institutions in business. At Millsaps, annual giving by alumni began in 1956 under the Alumni 
Fund program and has grown steadily since that time. Each year a number of non-alumni direct their 
gifts through the Alumni Fund. This giving takes many forms. Most contributions received are un- 
restricted in nature and can be used to meet the most pressing needs of the College. Many gifts credit- 
ed to the Alumni Fund are restricted in nature, however, and directed to a project in which the donor 
is particularly interested. Both kinds of gifts are needed and greatly appreciated. 

Special projects which were aided through gifts credited to the 1966-67 Alumni Fund are listed below: 



Daniel T. Anderson German Scholarship 

Challenge Grant Campaign

Dr. Mitchell and Dr. Hamilton congratulate each other for some now forgotten reason. 

Chair Honorees Were Great Teachers 



strange how the most ridiculous things have a way 
of taking over in one's memory. 

I never think of Dr. A. P. Hamilton that one particu- 
lar vision does not intrude itself upon whatever memory 
I am trying to summon: It is the sight of this venerable 
gentleman riding down the aisle of the Christian Center 
auditorium on a red tricycle. This occurred on a Stunt 
Night early in my college career, and it was the thing 
that convinced me that teachers are flesh and blood 
and not rock and granite cemented by dignity. 

Dr. Hamilton was always one to give himself whole- 
heartedly and unflinchingly to whatever was at hand. 
Another vision which protrudes itself is of a parade in 
which Dr. Hamilton, attired in a Roman costume and a 
slipping crown of leaves, is carried down Capitol Street 
aboard a litter borne by some of his students. 

I cannot attest to his ability in the classroom, since 
I took no courses under him. But Dr. M. C. White said of 
him, "His students could anticipate that his courses 
might be exacting, but never dull." 

Dr. White called J. Reese Lin "the outstanding oer- 
sonality in all Millsaps history." Since Dr. Lin retired 
in 1940, many alumni did not know him. Somewhere 



along the way he acquired the nickname "Ducky," and 
the Purple and White immortalized him and his sobriquet 
by running his famous proverbial sayings as a weekly 
feature entitled "Ducky Says." 

But Dr. White can best describe him. He said, "His 
knowledge was great, but his character was greater, 
and his own great qualities he stamped indelibly on 
those with whom he came into contact. He was a great 
teacher not only of the intellect but of the spirit. He 
gave to his students a sense of values, a set of princi- 
ples, a philosophy of life." 

Dr. B. E. Mitchell was another whose early retire- 
ment robbed many alumni of the pleasure of knowing him, 
although he continued to visit the campus for many 
years. Again Dr. White must supply insight: "He is a 
scholarly teacher and a contributor to learned maga- 
zines. Mathematics to him is both philosophy and re- 
ligion. In the orderliness of his science he sees reflected 
the wisdom and the assurance of an infinite God. He 
is a sweet-spirited man, a loyal friend, and a devoted 
Christian." 

Dr. Price was the youngest and most contemporary 
of the teachers honored by chairs. A number of things 
could be used to evoke his presence: "Ma" behind the

wheel of the car . . . "Him" . . . the twins . . . the inter- 
jection "by jacks" ... a vision of a lanky, long-strided 
figure crossing from SuUivan-Harrell with a serious, 
thoughtful expression on his face. 

No teacher was ever more devoted to his students. 
His success is found in the success of his students. The 
large number who are respected members of the medi- 
cal and dental professions attest to the sound prepara- 
tion Dr. Price helped them to achieve at Millsaps. 

Dr. White: a rubber band twined around pudgy fing- 
ers; a strong touch of whimsy; unfailing courtesy and 
interest; legs bowed by arthritis which could still carry 
him through the best set of tennis on the campus; ac- 
counts of childhood days back in Green Pond, Alabama. 

Dr. White is the one who meant the most to me 
personally. He was my major professor and the first 
Millsaps teacher I ever met, setting the pattern for me 
of what a college professor should be like. He was loved 
by his students for his understatement, for his quiet, 
gentle manner. He treated each student as a human be- 
ing, not a face in the classroom 

It would be impossible to enumerate the many serv- 
ices performed by these teachers who came to Mill- 
saps in her early years, helping to develop her into what 
she is now, bringing about the innovations which are now 
tradition. Their responsibilities extended into many 
areas. They founded many of the organizations on the 
campus. They worked with drama groups, publications, 
athletic teams. Any phase of Millsaps life concerned 
them, and they were eager to participate. Anything that 
involved the students interested them, and they were 



ready to do whatever they could to alleviate problems, 
to help in the development of interests, to satisfy needs. 

They are gone now, but how much of them remains. 



Two of the chairs honor men who were not mem- 
bers of the Millsaps faculty. The chair in economics was 
established by Dan M. White, of New Orleans, and 
named in his honor. 

Mr. White graduated from Millsaps College and thoi 
Millsaps Law School in 1917. He has been instrumental' 
in the establishment and operation of more than one' 
hundred financial institutions throughout the South and' 
West, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. I 

As a Millsaps student Mr. White twice received the 
Tribbett Scholarship. He had the distinction of being edi- 
tor in the same year not only of the Purple and White 
but also of the Bobashela. 

The chair was endowed as an expression of Mr.i 
White's interest in the advancement of Christian higher 
education and in church-related colleges. His only re- 
quest was that the merits of the free enterprise sys- 
tem be stressed. 

In 1920 W. S. F. Tatum, a prominent Methodist lay- 
man in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, gave $100,000 for the 
establishment of a Department of Religious Education, 
filling a great need, since prior to that time the college 
was able to offer only courses in Bible. 

Sons and grandsons have come to Millsaps, and the 
Tatum influence and tradition live on.

CAMPAIGN CONTINUES 

Two Mississippi areas have been 
organized for campaigns in the "To- 
ward A Destiny of Excellence" drive 
as the fund-raising effort presses to- 
ward the initial goal of $3.75 mil- 
lion. 

Mrs. Gycelle T y n e s has been 



named chairman of the Clarksdale 
area campaign and Jesse Brent is 
serving as the Greenville area cam- 
paign chairman. 

Also appointed in the Clarksdale 
area were Miss Thelma Moody, of 
Lyon, arrangements chairman; and 
Walter M. Campbell and Jack F. 
Dunbar, both of Clarksdale, division 
leaders. 

The Clarksdale area includes Coa- 
homa, Quitman, Tallahatchie, and 
Tunica counties. Included in the 
Greenville area are Bolivar, Issa- 
quena, Sharkey, Sunflower, and Wash- 
ington counties. 

The Clarksdale area campaign got 
underway on October 10 with a Mill- 
saps Dinner at the Regency Res- 
taurant Ballroom. Greenville's cam- 
paign was inaugurated on October 19 
with a kickoff dinner. 

In the Greenville campaign, P. F. 
Watzek is serving as vice chairman 
and Joe Wroten is the arrangements 
chairman. 

The fund total now stands at $2,706,- 
392, with $1,043,608 remaining to be 
secured before the drive ends on 
June 30, 1969. 

So far the drive has been concen- 
trated in the Jackson area since its 
launching in February with a big, 
two-day convocation featuring Secre- 
tary of Defense Robert McNamara, 
U. S. Steel executive Roger Blough, 
and Tennessee Governor Buford El- 
lington. 

Under the leadership of Jackson 
area leaders Tom B. Scott (alumni) 
and Herman Hines (non-alumni), 
some $1,288,534 was secured in the 
Jackson drive, which concluded in 
June. 

Designed to match a Ford Founda- 
tion grant cf $1.5 million, the "Toward 
A Destiny of Excellence" campaign 
has already guaranteed over two 
thirds of the grant. Millsaps must 
raise two and a half times the 
amount of the proposed award, or 
$3.75 million, by the 1969 deadline. 

Money from the combined funds is 
already being used for campus im- 



provements and salary increases. The 
Christian Center is being modernized 
this year to provide better drama 
facilities and additional classroom 
and office space. Other goals are an 
academic complex, additional vol- 
umes for the library, and improved 
faculty salary scale. 

Mrs. Tynes, the former Dorothy 
Cowen, teaches French in the Clarks- 
dale Public Schools. She graduated 
from Millsaps in 1936 and has had 
graduate work at various univer- 
sities. 

She has been active in all communi- 
ty and Methodist church projects in 
areas in which she has lived. In 
Clarksdale she has held offices in the 
Coahoma County Retarded Children 
Association and the Coahoma County 
Mental Health Association and its new 
mental health clinic. 

She has served as chairman of the 
Clarksdale Community Concert's 
membership drive and chairman of 
the Music Committee of First Meth- 
odist Church. She was made a life- 
time member of the Women's Society 
for Christian Service and the Biloxi 
P-TA. 

Her husband and two of her chil- 
dren are also graduates of Millsaps. 
The fifth member of the family, Al- 
lan, is now a senior here. 

Brent is president of Brent Towing 
Company, Inc., in Greenville. He is a 
member of the board of directors of 
the National Waterways Conference, 
Inc., the American Waterways Op- 
erators, Inc., the Intraccastal Canal 
Association, the Commercial National 
Bank, and the Rivers and Harbors 
Association. 

For the past seven years he has 
served on the Western Rivers Panel 
of the U. S. Merchant Marine Coun- 
cil. He was president of the Green- 
ville Chamber of Commerce in 1960 
and was a member of the board of 
directors of the Mississippi Valley

DR. KERN LEAVES GIFT 

Dr. Alfred Allan Kern, a member 
of the faculty from 1909 to 1920, died 
on June 25 in Lynchburg, Virginia. He 
had been in failing health for some 
years. 

He left Millsaps $3,000 to be used 
for the purchase of library books for 
the English Department. The money 
counts, of course, toward the "To- 
ward A Destiny of Excellence" goal. 

Dr. Kern was the immediate prede- 
cessor as chairman of the English 
Department to Dr. M. C. White and 
as librarian to Dr. A. G. Sanders. 

A Phi Beta Kappa, his contribu- 
tions to Millsaps were many. He was

as province commander of Kappa 
Alpha, coached some of the athletic 
teams. He was editor-in-chief of the 
KA Journal. 

He was the author of "The Ances- 
try of Chaucer," "Irwin Russell," and 
A First Book in English.

X-RAY EQUIPMENT BOUGHT 

A $32,000 grant has been used by 
the Science Division to complete 
x-ray analytical equipment with the 
purchase of an emission unit. 



Kappa Alpha House Dedicated 



Alpha Mu 
chapter of 
Kappa Al- 
pha dedicat- 
ed its new 
f r ate rnity 
house in Oc- 
tober. It oc- 
cupies the 
site of the 
old KA house 
on the south 
west side of 
the campus. 



34 




The x-ray equipment, consisting of I 
diffraction and emission units, per- ■ 
mils rapid identification of materials i 
and determination of the presence '. 
and amount of the elements in a giv- ■ 
en sample. The Millsaps equipment is i 
the only complete x-ray analysis sys- • 
tem in the state. 

The new emission equipment, val- 
ued at some $21,000, was the final I 
and largest purchase made with the : 
grant, of which the National Science ! 
Foundation gave $16,100 with the stip-. 
ulation that it be matched by Mill- 
saps for a total of $32,200. Several! 
other pieces of equipment have been' 
purchased by the geology and biology, 
departments in the three-year period, 
since the grant was made. 

The x-ray diffraction unit was ob-^ 
tained in 1963 through an educational! 
grant from the General Electric Com-i 
pany. 

The diffraction equipment permits! 
rapid identification of matter by indi-i 
eating the intensity and direction ofi 
radiation scattered, or diffracted, byi 
the matter. Emission determines thei 
composition of chemical elements ini 
any material. 

Fluorescence analysis with the! 
emission equipment is a simpler andj 
quicker method of chemical analysis,! 
or wet chemistry, according to Wen-| 
dell Johnson, associate professor ofi 
geology, who has principal responsi-, 
bility for the use and care of the^ 
equipment. 

Such sophisticated equipment andi 
research techniques are usually re^ 
served for graduate students, John-; 
son says, but at Millsaps they will bei 
used by advanced undergraduate stu- 
dents for special problems and ap-j 
plications in specified departmental! 
courses. The equipment will also bei 
available for faculty research. i 

HIGH SCHOOL DAY SET 

November 18 has been set as High 
School Day. 

Alumni can provide a great service 
to Millsaps by bringing promising stu-i 
dents to the campus for the annual 
event or by encouraging them to at- 
tend. 

A varied program will be offered 
which will help the student to de- 
termine whether Millsaps is the col- 
lege he should attend.

When Giving Can Save 



By Barry Brindley 
Assistant to the President 



Year-End: A Time to Review^ 



It has been pointed out many times from this 
page that the Federal Government has long encour- 
aged generous gifts to educational institutions by 
granting liberal tax advantages to the donor. These 
tax advantages are special deductions and exemp- 
tions which reduce the donor's income tax, capital 
gains tax, and estate and inheritance taxes. Because 
of special tax savings, a gift never costs the donor the 
full amount of his contribution. In many cases, these 
tax savings enable the donor to make a larger gift 
than he originally contemplated. Year-end is a particu- 
larly appropriate time to review these tax ad- 
vantages. 

Listed below are ten ways in which you may 
make a gift to Millsaps and the tax aspects of each. 
Remember that amounts pledged are not deductible. 
Only gifts actually paid may be included as a con- 
tributions deduction on your income tax return. 

1. Cash. Donor has a contribution deduction for 
the amount of the gift. 

2. Property which is valued above the donor's 
tax cost. Donor has a contribution deduction 
for the current value of the property at the 
time of the gift. 

3. Property sold to the College at a bargain price. 
Donor has a contribution deduction for the dif- 
ference between the sale price and the higher 
current value. 

4. Rental property donated to the College with 
the donor receiving the income from the prop- 
erty for his life. Donor gets a contribution 
deduction for the value of the property de- 
creased by the value of his life ownership of 
the property. 

5. Funds given to the College in exchange for 
which the donor is paid a fixed annual in- 
come for his life (annuity). Donor has a con- 
tribution deduction for the excess over the 
cost of a commercial annuity paying similar 
amounts. Capital gains tax is deferred when 
appreciated property is transferred for the an- 
nuity. 

6. Funds given to the College in exchange for 



which the donor will receive annually for life 
a percentage return on the funds equal to the 
percentage earned by the College's endow- 
ment fund (life income contract). Donor gets 
a deduction for the funds transferred reduced 
by the value of the life income as determined 
by Treasury tables. Donor avoids capital gains 
tax when appreciated property is transferred 
for the life income contract. 

7. Funds transferred to a trust, the income of 
which goes to the College for at least two 
years, after which the trust's funds revert to 
the donor (short-term charity trust)". Donor 
avoids income tax on trust's earnings. Where 
trust fund reverts to another, donor has a 
contribution deduction for value of income to 
the College as determined by Treasury tables. 

8. Funds transferred to a trust, the income of 
which goes to the donor for his life, after 
which trust funds revert to the College (chari- 
ty remainder trust). Donor has a deduction 
for the trust funds reverting to the College 
upon his death as determined by Treasury 
tables. He pays no capital gains tax on the 
transfer of appreciated property to the trust 
except when trustee is required to purchase 
tax-exempt bonds. 

9. Donor names College irrevocable beneficiary 
and gives to the College an insurance policy 
on his life. Donor has a contribution deduction 
for the value of the policy at the time of the 
gift. Thereafter he deducts annually any sub- 
sequent premiums he pays. 

10. Donor in his will gives property to the College 
outright or retains an interest in it for his 
family as described above. The estate tax is 
reduced by the value of the property given to 
the College as determined by Treasury tables. 

The purpose of all this is to explain briefly how 
different taxes affect your gift to Millsaps and to out- 
line the tax advantages of various methods of giving. 
If you should be interested in taking advantage of 
these opportunities of giving to Millsaps, please con- 
tact the Development Office, Millsaps College, or your 
own attorney or accountant.
