Millsaps has undertaken an experimental program 
this year which offers one of the more exciting ap- 
proaches to inter-disciplinary education which has been 
attempted in this country. This issue of Major Notes 
is devoted to an examination of this effort, known as 
"The Heritage Program." In a nutshell, it is a monu- 
mental attempt to look at man's heritage in a unified 
package as opposed to the piecemeal manner in which 
education has traditionally approached such studies. The 
curriculum directly involves the specific disciplines of 
history, philosophy, religion, English, art and music. 
Indirectly it touches on almost the whole range of 
man's knowledge. 

From a pedagogic point of view, experience to date 
in this program has been most encouraging. Though 
students find it taxing and demanding, they also report 
it exciting. From an administrative point of view, it ap- 
pears that the biggest single dilemma is to find an eco- 
nomical way of underwriting its cost on a continuing 
basis. Though it is not a safe analogy to suggest that 
all things which cost more are necessarily the best, it 
is certainly true that there is a high degree of correla- 
tion between the quality of an education and the re- 
sources applied to it. 

If we are to sustain The Heritage Program and other 
bold ventures which we should undertake at Millsaps, it 
simply means that the College must continue to obtain 
resources far beyond its traditional level. Among other 
potentials on the horizon are a host of learning ideas 
such as educational television, computer-assisted in- 
struction and independent study. We want you, as par- 
ents, friends and alumni, to imderstand the nature of 
both our problems and our opportunities. With under- 
standing, we believe that you will want to continue 
to support Millsaps as it moves "Toward a Destiny of 

An IntroducHon To 
The Millsaps 


by Robert H. Padgett 

Asociate Professor of Eriglish 

and Director of the Heritage Program 

"The Heritage Program" is a new phrase that has 
gained currency on the Millsaps campus this fall se- 
mester. Friends and alumni of the College may have 
seen it cited in publicity releases concerning sponsor- 
ship of special events open to the whole community. 
Doubtless the parents of seventy-six freshmen have 
heard the phrase often in explanation of various sins of 
omission, especially the failure to write letters home. I 
suspect too that around 2 a. m. on some mornings in 
the dorms the phrase has the force of anathema. 

But just what does "The Heritage Program" signify? 
The first thing to notice is that it is a program of 
studies, not a course. Specifically, the Heritage Program 
is an especially designed interdisciplinary approach to 
the study of the heritage of Western man — the creative 
works, the seminal ideas, the pivotal events, the discov- 
eries and movements which form the basis of Western 
culture. It consists of two closely related and parallel 
courses (which occupy about three-fifths of the normal 
freshman load); and a number of extracurricular events, 
which are intended to extend the learning experience 
beyond the threshold of the classroom and the library 
to the theatre, the concert hall, the art gallery, and 
the world at large. 

The core of the program is the course called "The 
Cultural Heritage of the West." This two-semester, four- 
teen-credit-hour course is an essentially chronological 
portrayal of the heritage of Western man viewed from 
the perspectives provided by history, literature, religion, 
philosophy, the fine arts, and other disciplines. The 
course is structured to allow the student to experience 
a variety of teaching methods and styles; a normal 
week's work consists of four lectures alternating with 
two discussion group meetings and one laboratory ses- 
sion. The lectures and laboratory sessions bring the 
whole group of seventy-six students together at various 
times during the week to hear a variety of teachers 
discuss and analyze selected aspects of the civilization 
under study; the discussion sessions divide the class into 
groups of approximately fifteen members each to al- 
low the students an opportunity to explore in more de- 
tail those questions and issues they have found most 
relevant in their reading and in the lectures. Generically, 
this course belongs to the category of "Humanities" 
courses that have become fairly widespread in higher 
education in recent years, but the Millsaps version has 
two unusual, if not unique, features. First, it attempts 
to blend the insights and perspectives of a greater vari- 
ety of disciplines into one master course than do most 

such Humanities courses. Second, our course recognizes 
and emphasizes the fact that many aspects of our cultur- 
al herilayc do not >ield themselves up fully to discursive 
analysis alone; the>- must be experienced, not just talked 
or read about. Therefore we make an unusual effort to 
expose the student directly to generous selections of lit- 
erary works and to primary documents of history, 
philosophy and religion. The laboratories are especially 
important in this regard in allowing the student to expe- 
rience directly masterworks of art, music, and drama 
through the media of films, slides, recordings, and live 
performances. Thanks to a government grant, this di- 
mension of the program has been especially enriched 
this year by the opportunity to sponsor for the students 
and for the community a number of special extracur- 
ricular events, including, among others, an introduction 
to classical Indian music by Ashish Khan and Company 
(an opportunity for cultural perspective), a slide-lecture 
on American art b\' Donald McClelland of the Smithson- 
ian Institution, an appearance by the noted medieval his- 
torian Norman Cantor, and, still to come later this year, 
evenings of chamber music by the Guarneri String 
Quartet and of medieval, Elizabethan, and baroque music 
by the New York Pro Musica. 

The unique feature of the Heritage Program is the 
second course which runs in tandem with "The Cultural 
Heritage of the West." Titled simply "Composition," it 
is an especially structured I"'reshman English course 
designed to give the student experience in expressing his 
ideas effectively, to develop his proficiency in writing 
and speaking clear and correct English, and finally to 
augment his understanding and appreciation of selected 
major works of our Western literary heritage through 
a more detailed study of stylistic and structural tech- 
niques than the 'Cultural Heritage" course allows. The 
"Composition" course and the "Cultural Heritage" 

course are meant to be mutually enriching; the two 
courses share reading assignments. The "Cultural Heri- 
tage" course provides a rich background of ideas, prob- 
lems, events, and issues upon which the student can 
draw for subject matter in his writing assignments; 
the "Composition" course trains him to organize his re- 
flections upon his readings and to express his own de- 
veloping point of view clearly and accurately. 

The Heritage Program is the first fruit of an extensive 
curriculum review undertaken by the faculty beginning 
in 1963. When it was proposed formally in 1965, the pro- 
gram was conceived of as providing a foundation stone 
for the student's college career, a freshman program 
that would introduce the student to higher education in 
a stimulating and significant way and signal clearly to 
him that college is not merely an intensified version of 
what he learned in high school. It was conceived too 
that the Heritage Program would be complemented by 
other interdisciplinary courses and programs, especially 
one in Non - Western areas and one in contemporary 
issues. Those programs are still in the planning stage, 
but the Heritage Program is a demanding, varied, and, 
T believe, fruitful actuality — an alternative way by 
which seventy-si.x hardy and interesting volunteers are 
fulfilling basic curriculum requirements in English, his- 
tory, philosophy, religion, and the fine arts and are ex- 
ploring who and where they are in this world of time. 
It is too early yet to gauge the success of this experi- 
ment. We know the operation of the program is not per- 
fect, and we are already involved in revisions and im- 
provements. In general, however, the signs have been 
encouraging, and not the least important, I believe, 
is the fact that the Heritage Program has earned the 
accolade of Horatian satire in the Purple and White; 
and Horatian satire, I've been taught, expresses not only 
worthwhile criticism of the subject, but commitment to 
its real values and some affection for it.

The Roman Republic 

a lecture in the Millsaps Heritage Series 

by Magnolia Simpson Coullet 

Chairman of the Department of Ancient Languages

In attempting to give you the history of the Roman 
Republic within less than an hour I feel like a farmer 
who has been sent to plough a ten acre field with the 
stipulation that he must use only one furrow and do the 
work within a few minutes. In dismay and consternation 
I think frantically, "Shall I plough straight down the 
middle? Shall I go north and south or east and west or 
northeast by southwest?" And while I am thinking I am 
already ploughing. When I reach the end I look back 
and my heart sinks, for I see that in places I have 
ploughed a straight furrow, but in some places I have 
dashed off to the right, in others to the left and several 
places where I have lifted the plough to shake off the 
accumulation, I have ploughed not at all. All I can say 
is that I started at the beginning and came out at the 
end of the limit which had been set. I must leave to 
chance or perhaps the climate and the weather and the 
fertility of the soil to bring forth any kind of harvest 
at all. 

So in the matter of the History of the Roman Re- 
public must I, when I have finished, leave to chance, 
or the climate and weather of your interest and addi- 
tional reading, and to the fertility of your intellectual 
soil as to whether these Romans, whom for forty years 
I personally have loved and respected and tried to rep- 
resent, will get a proper hearing from you. And even 
while I am talking, two minutes of my time have gone. 

On a day in 509 B. C. Rome, first a little town on a 
small hill but at that time a little city on seven hills, 
had its Independence Day. Its King George was a man 
named Tarquin the Proud, a foreigner who had come 
to Rome from the north. Its George Washington was a 
man named Brutus, the ancestor of another Brutus who 
in 44 B. C, along with Cassius and others, put Julius 
Caesar to death and a second time freed Rome from 
the fear of having that hated thing called a king. But this 
was 465 years after the first Independence Day and at 

a lime vvlien Rome was no longer a city on one iiill or 
even on seven hills, but had stretched her power over 
much of the known world. 

Today we are going to talk about Roman history be- 
tween Brutuses — so to speak — between the time when 
Home was a city on only seven hills and that when she almost mistress of the World — between 509 B. C. 
and 44 B. C. — the period of the Roman Republic, the 
time during which Rome's destiny, geographically speak- 
ing, was begun and in great part fulfilled, but also the 
period in which, idealistically speaking, her early plans 
for becoming a great and good democracy came to 
absolutely nothing. 

The period of Roman history following the death of 
Julius Caesar — and some seventeen years of turmoil 
—is called the Empire, and the semi - legendary period 
before the Republic is known as the Period of Kings 
or the Regal Period. It seems proper to summarize 
briefly what has come down to us about Rome's earliest 
days as a reasonable prelude to the period under con- 

Rome was founded, according to legend, in 753 B. C. 
on a little hill about like this one on which Millsaps 
stands, in the district called Latium. It was founded by 
Romulus, a young man who, as a baby, had been put 
into a basket and set into the Tiber River, with the 
unrealized hope of his enemy that he would drown. Un- 
der the following three kings who, because of their home 
in Latium, were called Latin kings, this small town of 
"huts on a hill" grew and expanded to cover three hills. 
The names of these kings were Numa Pompilius, Tul- 
lus Hostilius and Ancus Martius — names than which no 
name ever sounded more Latin. 

Then around 616 B. C. from the north of Rome and 
Latium, from the district called Etruria — whether 
because they thought, according to Livy, that as inhabi- 
tants of Rome they might find greener pastures for 
their ambitions; or whether by reason of the 
strength of those Roman neighbors — the kingship passed 
into the hands of three Etruscans — Tarquin the First, 
Servius TuUius and Tarquin the Proud. 

Realizing that all we read about this Period of 
Kings is only legendary and having to acknowledge that 

the wonderful stories existing in Latin Literature con- 
cerning it are but tales that have been told and re- 
told, still we know that, as it is with all legends, a germ 
or a thread of reality made the stories possible. Some 
things, according to existing remains, or to archaeologi- 
cal findings or according to references in later writings 
cause a few bits of knowledge to emerge. The knowl- 
edge concerning the Etruscans is in many ways of 
a negative character. They are called one of the enig- 
mas of histor.v. The\' were in Italy before Rome was 
founded — at least a hundred years. Where they came 
from nobody knows but it is generally believed that they 
came from Asia Minor. Their alphabet was Greek but, 
although they have left thousands of inscriptions, their 
language has never been translated — except for prop- 
er names. Their civilization was of a high type. Per- 
haps it was a fusion of their own customs and those 
of the native Italic tribes of Etruria, influenced and re- 
fined by the Greeks who, during the centuries of their 
colonizations, had built many small flourishing cities in 
the south of Italy. 

The Etruscans, having once settled in Etruria, soon 
expanded both to the north and to the south and, in one 
way or another, occupied Latium and established king- 
ship in Rome in the late seventh century B. C. They 
reached the height of their power and influence during 
the reign of these kings in the sixth century. In 509 
B. C. Rome, tired and disgusted with the excesses of 
the Tarquins — excesses in political and social situa- 
tions — rose up, under the first Brutus, and drove them 
from Rome forever. 

But though the kings were gone, their influences re- 
inained. These highly civilized people had brought into 
Rome and Latium many of their quite advanced ways 
of doing things — things which the simple farmer or 
shepherd folk on the little hills near the Tiber River 
had not known or thought of: the Etruscans knew how 
to pave roads, to fortify their towns — all set on hills — 
with huge stone walls. They built their towns with two 
important streets crossing at right angles. They made 
fine portraits, beautiful engraved mirrors, and splendid 
temples, the plan of which, instead of that of the Greeks, 
was taken over and used as model by the Romans.

One of the most useful contributions of these men 
from the north was the development of a drainage sys- 
tem by means of which they cleared away the mud 
in the valley down at the foot of the seven hills — where 
the Romans had been slogging about for a hundred 
years or more. This valley became in later days the 
most important and dazzling place perhaps that the 
world has even seen — the Forum Romanum — the Ro- 
man Forum, where legal and public affairs that con- 
cerned the whole world were discussed and carried on. 
Great remains of it are still to be seen today. 

Politically, the Tarquin kings are said to have 
united Rome into a confederation with the thirty cities 
in Latium of which confederation they soon made her 
the acknowledged leader. Wherever these Etruscans 
went they carried a well developed civilization with 
them and when they came to Rome the Romans, primi- 
tive as they were, had the good sense to profit by what 
was superior and to adopt or adapt it — as they did 
later also in the case of the Greeks. 

But with all the advanced ideas the Etruscans 
brought to Rome, they also brought arrogance, tyran- 
ny, cruelty, and lack of consideration — and the Ro- 
mans drove them put. Then making use of the public 
works completed or begun by the Etruscans, Rome was 
in a good position to display her strength and to gain 
power over Latium — and Italy — but she did not do so 
without the greatest difficulty. 

The Romans, triumphant at being free from the 
overlordship of these Etruscans, set about remaking and 
refashioning their government from a monarchy into a 
democracy. They made a good beginning by electing 
two men to govern but for only one year. These men 
were eventually called consuls and each served as a 
check on the other. In general, otherwise, the same gov- 
ernmental system which they had inherited was retain- 
ed. The consuls and the entire government of the new 
Republic were from the very beginning put to the 
severest test, both from without and within. Their mili- 
tary strength having been somewhat depleted in expell- 
ing the kings, they were at once attacked by the cities 
of Latium, each of whom wanted supremacy; at the 
same time the Romans had to meet again and again 
armies from Etruria which had become very hostile 
because of the dethroning of the Tarquins. Out of these 
battles have come many stories of famous men and 
events — stories which picture the early Roman to us — 
first as a farmer, simple, rustic, severe, dignified, brave, 
unimaginative and practical, a man who respected the 
gods and his ancestors, who obeyed the law and kept 
his word: second as a soldier who, in the field, standing 
shoulder to shoulder with members of his clan, showed 
himself inspired to deeds of daring. Perhaps you are 
familiar with the story of Cincinnatus, the farmer plow- 
ing in his field, whom the dignitaries of the Roman 
Senate sought out and made the Dictator in a crisis — 

of his victory within a few days and of his prompt re- 
turn to his plowing; or the story of Horatius at the 
Bridge; of Mucius Scaevola who voluntarily burned off 
his right hand without flinching to show the Etruscans 
how fearless he and hundreds of other Romans were in 
the face of danger to their beloved Rome; of Cloelia, 
the Roman girl who, a hostage with the enemy, leaped 
from her prison into the Tiber River, showing her 
friends a way to safety — and of her subsequent return 
by the Romans because they did not believe that all 
is fair in war. There are many more such stories set- 
ting forth the fine qualities of mind and character 
which in part, at least, accounted for the long survival 
and wide influence of Latin culture. 

One by one Rome overcame these enemies — first 
the Latin Cities with whom she made a new federa- 
tion which called for mutual cooperation against fu- 
ture hostile tribes — then, with the Latin cities she over- 
came the mountain tribes from the south and north- 
east, which swooped down time after time from their 
mountain strongholds into and onto the fields of the 
Romans. In 396 B. C. Rome, after prolonged fighting, 
brought the Etruscan city Veil under her control and 
thereby doubled her geographical limits. 

Six years later, however, in 390 B. C. everything 
seemed lost and Rome destined for extinction. From 
still farther north than Etruria, people from beyond the 
Alps — Celtic people — whom the Romans called the 
Gauls — broke into the weakened Etruria, stormed 
across it almost unopposed to within eleven miles of 
Rome. Here on the banks of the Allia River, these Gauls 
met and routed the Roman army. While the Gauls, un- 
opposed, were approaching the city as Livy tells us: 

At Rome meanwhile such arrangements for defend- 
ing the Citadel as the case admitted of were now 
fairly complete, and the old men returned to their 
homes to await the coming of their enemies with 
hearts that were steeled to die. Such of them as had 
held offices, that they might face death in the ves- 
ture of their rank and honor, as befitted their worth, 
put on their stately robes and thus clothed, seated 
themselves on ivory chairs in the middle of their 
houses .... The Gauls came trooping to the Forum 
and the places near it. As they entered the houses 
of the nobles their feeling was akin to religious awe 
when they beheld seated in the vestibules beings, 
who, besides that their ornaments and apparel were 
more splendid than belonged to man, seemed also, 
in their majesty of countenance and in the gravity 
of their expression, most like to gods.i 

But the Gauls took the city of Rome and wreaked havoc 
on it such as had never been done before nor was ever 
done thereafter. They stayed for seven months, then ac- 
cepted a ransom of gold from the Romans and left as 
suddenly as they had come. This day, July 16, 390 B. 
C, was the blackest day in the early history of Rome 
and still today in classical circles is termed the great- 
est cataclysm in all the history of Rome for it is doubt- 
less at this time that all historical records were lost 
or destroyed and that our reliance is on oral tradition 
at least up to 390 B. C. 

But the growth of the Roman Republic was not thus 
to be stopped — and the Roman populace came back 
from the woods, mountains, and towns to which they 
had fled and with characteristic Roman determination 
and perseverance cleared up the wreck and ruin of the 
city and rebuilt it. This time they put their Etruscan 
training into practice and built a strong stone wall 
around the whole town. Part of this wall can still be 
seen today — deep within today's city limits, of course. 

For the next one hundred years, Rome was engaged 
in almost continuous warfare. By 290 B. C. she had met 
and conquered all the Etruscans to the north, the Latin 
cities which revolted time after time, the Volscians and 
and Aequians and the Samnites, who were conquered 
only after three long and bitter wars. Rome's territory 
now extended from the Arno River in the north to the 
Greek city states in the toe and heel of Italy. 

During all this time of external battles and warfare, 
there was going on simultaneously a struggle within 
the little city state. The citizens of early Rome were 
divided into two classes — the patricians and the plebe- 
ians — the difference in the classes being based on fami- 
ly prestige — or descent. The particians were power- 
ful and wealthy, the plebeians poor and needy. 

When the last Tarquin had been removed from his 
office, his throne, the country, and the intentions of the 
Romans, it had been done, as was always true in an- 
cient city-states, by and for the nobles. The two consuls 
elected annually in the place of a king were patricians. 
The prerogatives of the king, almost without change, 
were passed on to them: they wore purple (or crim- 
son) borders around their togas and tunics, they sat on 
an official ivory chair, they retained such symbols of 
power as the twelve lictors (attendants who walked in 
a long single line before them) and the fasces (bun- 
dles of sticks bound together with axes), symbol of the 
power of life and death. The consuls were the comman- 
ders in warfare — positions which grew in importance 
the more extended and the greater Rome's military ex- 
ploits became. All the high religious offices were in pos- 
session of the nobility and by reason of appointive pro- 
cesses remained so. More than anything else, however, 
the Senate, composed of 300 members — all patricians 
— formed the stronghold of the aristocracy. Its members 
held their seats for life and as it gained in authority it 
became more and more rigidly aristocratic. 

To none of these political strongholds did the plebeians 
have access. Added to this was the fact that marriage 
between the two orders was forbidden by law. Out of 
this situation — the overpowering influence of the patri- 
cians with the resultant oppression and expressed griev- 
ances of the plebeians — arose a class struggle called the 
"Conflict of the Orders." 

In the very earliest days of the Republic, as has 
been mentioned, the plebeians had little part in the wars 
of their city but the continuation of these wars necessi- 
tated the use of more and more man power and the 
plebeians, by means determined on by the particians, 
came to be more and more a part of the fighting force 
of Rome. They soon came to recognize their value — and 
they also learned discipline and cooperation which stood 
them in good stead as they began to assert their rights. 
In 494 B. C. between the wars with the Latin cities and 

iLivy-Loeb Series, Section XLI, translated by B. O. 


the mountain tribes, tiiey went so far as to secede 
from Rome with the intention of building their own city. 
This was exactly what was needed to force a concession 
from the patricians — for they had to have plebeian man 
power for their armies. Accordingly, it was agreed 
that the plebeians should have their own annual magis- 
trates — called tribunes — at first two, later ten. Their 
persons were inviolate and they had the right to in- 
tercede in any case of a patrician magistrate's action 
against a plebeian. As time went on this tribuneship 
became one of the strongest powers in the whole field 
of government. Having gained this first concession, the 
plebeians were able year after year to gain others — 
one of the most important of which was the writing 
down of the laws, which up to 450 B. C. had existed 
only in in the heads of the patricians. This codification 
was known as the Laws of the Twelve Tables and was 
set up in the F o r.u m for all to read. It became the 
foundation for all later Roman law, the last codification 
of which was done hundreds of years later by Justinian 
and became the basis for the laws of most modern 

One by one all the barriers to political and social 
participation by patrician and plebeian alike were low- 
ered and in 287 B. C. three years after Rome had come 
geographically into contact with the Greek cities of 
southern Italy, a Council of the Plebs was the 'sover- 
eign' power and complete political and social equality 
had been attained. 

Differences now being composed within the city — 
with a resulting improvement in the army both in or- 
ganization and in spirit, with fresh strength in Roman 
life politically and socially, the aligned orders seemed 
within reach of the Republic toward which they had been 
aiming. Most people were one kind of citizens of Rome 
or another or could look forward to becoming one; or 
they were allies; or they were members of military 
garrisons or colonies in conquered territory. As soon as, 
with a united front, they should conquer the Greek cities 
to the south, which they did in 275 B. C, they should 
have peace and consolidate their gains, which by this 
time consisted of all Italy from the Arno River in the 
north to the Strait of Messina between Italy and Sicily. It 
seemed, in short, that the Republic was finally to be 


ruled by the people. But such was not the case. In fact, 
the next step to be taken — that of conquest outside Italy 
—sounded the death knell of a Republican way of life 
although the Romans as yet had no thought of such a 

When they looked out from the toe of Italy, the 
Romans could actually see the island of Sicily on a sun- 
ny day. And they knew or soon learned that Carthage, 
the largest sea power in the world, owned much of the 
Sicily which they could not see— and it was soon also 
known that this empire of Carthage intended to have all 
Sicily and Italy too if she could. This the Romans would 
not tolerate; and, as had happened in her occupation 
of Italy, one conquest called for another and she was 
launched on the building of an empire of possessions. 

Before the discussion turns to Roman expansion 
outside of Italy in the last half of the Republic, let us 
take a few minutes to describe this peninsula which has 
always and will always have an attraction for people all 
over the world. Her northern part, about 320 miles from 
east to west, separated from the rest of Europe by the 
lofty Alps Mountains, lies within the continent. The rest 
of her extends like a great boot out into the Mediter- 
ranean which during her years of expansion, she made 
into her front yard. Down her entire peninsular 
length of 650 miles runs the range of the Appennines — 
not nearly so high as the Alps but forming in early days 
a barrier to travel for the distance of not more than 
125 miles from east to west across the peninsula. In 
the north of Italy are some of the most beautiful lakes 
in the world. Still farther north beyond the lakes, the 
slopes of the Alps, too steep to be used for much except 
lor the forests which grow on them, are terraced, in 
whatever spots are available, for the growing of the 
grape vines. Round about on every side are the beau- 
tiful cascades — which fall sometimes in tiny streams 
and sometimes in large waterfalls to feed the rivers and 
turn the wheels of industry. The main streams are the 
Po, the Adige, and the Arno toward the north and the 
Tiber which winds in a big curve west of the seven 
hills of Rome. Below Rome lies the vast plain of Cam- 
pagna where a stranger, deceived by its smooth rolling 
appearance, might easily become lost in a moment of 
carelessness. Farther south lies Naples and Mount 
Vesuvius, the ever flaming volcano, which in 79 A. D. 
erupted and hid from sight for centuries the two towns 
of Herculaneum and Pompeii. On the western side of 
the peninsula are several good harbors, among them 
Genoa and Naples — on the east Venice and Brindisi. 
And what about Rome herself? Rome has, since time 
immemorial, been the center or head of one power or 
another. She was the central figure in Italy's earliest 
history and in the ancient Roman Empire, she was the 
mainspring of the Holy Roman Empire, she was the 
capital during the ecclesiastical despotism, she was the 
constitutional capital of an independent Italy during and 
after the time of Garibaldi. And through all these stages 
of temporal change, she has always held her place as 
the capital of the more universal realm of the spirit. 
She and Italy have always captured man's imagination, 
none more surely than Vergil's, who in his Eclogues has 
presented the freshness and softness of Italian scenes 
in a manner trub' representative — not so much as a 
land of old civilization, of historic renown, of great cities, 
of corn crops and vineyards, though they are there — but 
as a land of soft and genial air, beautiful with the tender 
foliage and fresh flowers and blossoms of spring and 
with the rich coloring of autumn. 

These are not the sentiments, indeed, of the Romans, 
who in 264 B. C. looked out over Sicily and prepared : 
to go to war with Carthage. They could not have ex- 
pressed these sentiments, for, as far as we know, from 
the founding of Rome in 753 B. C. up to the time of 
the Wars with Carthage, the\' had not produced a single 
writer. The great 5th century, the Age of Pericles, 
had come and gone in Greece only a few hours away 
across the sea — while Rome was busy subduing Italy. 
Alexander the Great had come and gone while the 
patricians and plebeians were working out their d i f- 
ferences, and Hellenistic culture was in the ascend- 
ancy as she took over the Greek cities of the south . . . 
But she had to wait a few more years for her first poet 
and he was a Greek slave, Livuis Andronicus, brought 
to Rome from Tarentum. His first work and the first 
Latin work known to have been written down was a 
translation of the Greek Homer done shortly after Rome 
launched herself into the First Punic War in 264 B. C. 

For the first time now, although the story is more 
than half told, we actually possess records, authentic 
and reliable, of Rome's history. As one historian has put 
it, "Roman History emerges from shadow land into 
daylight." Polybius, a Greek historian of 167 B. C, and 
Livy, the great Roman historian of the years just fol- 
lowing the end of the Republic, are our main sources of 
information concerning the wars with Carthage. 

The Wars, for there were three of them, fought be- 
tween these two nations were known as the Punic 
Wars and constituted "the greatest conflict in antiquity." 
Though, as always, there was a small immediate cause 
of the war, the real and underlying cause was "simply 
the confUct of interests between Carthage and Rome." 
Carthage wanted aU of Sicily and eventually all of Italy; 
Italy believed that Sicily, entirely owned and operated 
by Carthage, would indeed constitute a threat to her. It 
must also be acknowledged that many influential men 
in Rome, having gained much from the subjugation of 
Italy, now wished to gain more by further conquest. 

And so the clash came on. From this point on many 
details must be omitted and many generalizations made 
but it will not be necessary to hear it all. "As the twig 
is bent so will the tree grow." And we have, in briefly 
discussing the beginnings of Rome and the Republic, 
seen how year after year and century after century the 
Roman was by practice and experience and hardhead- 
cdness and devotion to his city learning to do what Ver- 
gil, years later rather redundantly suggested when he 
had the father of Aeneas, the legendary ancestor of 
Romulus say to his son: "Let others beat out bronze 
that seems to breathe, let them produce living features 
from marble, let others plead cases better, let them 
trace out with pointers the movements of the heavenly 
bodies and name the rising stars; you, O Roman, re- 
member to fashion the ways of peace, to spare the con- 
quered, and to wage war to the finish with the proud — 
these are your skills." These, indeed were her skills. 

As the Romans and Carthagians faced each other 
across the Mediterranean Sea it was inconceivable that 
this young newly confederated country could hope 
to succeed against so mighty an Empire. But Rome 
had many things in her favor — her possessions were 
ail together on one peninsula, loyal to her in spirit and 
united by good roads. Her government while firm was 
not despotic, and her soldiers were enlisted from 
among her citizens. Carthage's empire was far-flung, 
made up on many peoples — some not at all interested in 
Carthage; and her soUders were mercenaries. But 
Carthage had a powerful fleet and she had Hannibal. 


Nevertheless, in the mighty conflict which ensued 
Rome overcame both these odds. Although in the be- 
ginning she had not a single warship, she copied those 
of her enemy and with the copies beat the greatest 
navy in the world. At the end of this first war Sicily, 
Corsica and Sardinia became Rome's first provinces out- 
side Italy. 

In the second War the great Hannibal brought his 
army and elephants up, across and down the Alps into 
Italy where for almost twenty years he marched up and 

down the Italian countryside winning brilliant victor- 
ies in unbelievable circumstances. He conquered every- 
thing -~ everything except Roman man power and Ro- 
man spirit for wherever Hannibal killed 60,000 men in 
battle, 70,000 came on to take their places; and the spirit 
of Rome and her allies, typified by the Senate which 
rose to its greatest height, held firm, patient, and 

At length the Roman consul Publius Scipio took the 
war to Africa, Hannibal was recalled to Carthage and 


was defeated at Zama in 202 B. C. He later committed 

Tn the .\ears 149-146 B. C. Rome wiped Carthage from 
the face of the earth and she was no more. Africa be- 
c;ime a Roman province as well as did Spain which had 
hclon^ed to Carthage. Between the first two Punic Wars 
Rome, aggravated by raids of the Gauls from the north, 
raised an enormous army of around 1,300,000 men, cut 
the Gauls down almost to the last men and then all 
of Ital>' belonged to Rome. 

Rome did not actually plan to gain possession of the 
entire Mediterranean in the beginning. Circumstances in 
many instances brought about a war, the war brought 
victory and that victory produced another war. At the 
same time it is clear that as time went on this ex- 
pansion and its results were not looked on with complete 
disfavor by the men in the senatorial class who were 
becoming wealthy and who liked the glory of victory. 

By 133 B. C, just 131 years from the time she first 
set her foot off of Italian soil, Rome had added to her 
possessions Macedonia and Greece, Ptolemy's empire in 
Africa, Rhodes and Syria and Pergamum in Asia Minor. 
It is during this time of expansion that the Romans, 
having "looked on the Greek culture and found it good" 
began to have shipped back to Rome great quanties of 
confiscated goods. Furniture, precious metals, works of 
art, statues of the finest sculptors the world has ever 
known were loaded on ships and sent back to Rome to 
decorate the homes of the rich. Much of this loot, meet- 
ing with storms on the sea, sank to the bottom and even 
today many of these timeless and pricelss pieces of art 
are being dredged up from places sometimes most 
unexpected. Along with the works of art came also, as 
slaves, the Greek artisits or pupils of artists, and 
Greek scholars — and Rome became the richer intellec- 
tually and artistically speaking — and through the 
Romans the world has been made richer. The civiliza- 
tion brought about by the meeting of Romans and 
Greeks is known as Graeco - Roman civilization — the 
successor to the Hellenistic Age — and this Graeco- 
Roman civilization became the root of European civiliza- 
tion. Rome herself spread this refinement of culture into 
all the territories she acquired by means of magnificent 
roads, by enormous public works and by the sending of 
teachers into the provinces. 

But for Rome herself there developed disaster — 
in the character of her government and in the charac- 
ter of the people. She had begun as a city state in which 
everybody could participate in public affairs. While this 
was true the Roman government had worked well; 
indeed, with understandable and predictable exceptions 
her government was satisfactory as long as she remain- 
ed on Italian soil. But when she gained the rulership 
and guardianship of so many varied lands and peoples, 
she was unable successfully to make her city-state pro- 
cesses suitable to what constituted in reality an em- 
pire. As powerful as the Senate had become, it could not 
control the governors who went out from Rome to rule 
the provinces and most of them became corrupt, robbing 
the people in order to enrich themselves. It was said that 
these magistrates set out to make three fortunes for 
themselves — one to pay the debts they had made in or- 
der to secure high office; a second to pay the judges 
for their prosecution when they returned home; and a 
third to live on in luxury the rest of their days. 

At home also the old virtuous, patriotic, religious 
Roman had given place in large measure to the self- 
seeking, greedy, even cruel man. With the wealth that 

poured in in greater and greater quantities, the small 
farms of Italy were absorbed by the wealthy, the num- 
ber of slaves was so large that characterizing dress was 
thought inappropriate for safety's sake. Corrpution in 
politics abound also here at home where would - be 
officials to all ranks were not above using bribery 
and corruption to secure the offices. With the landless 
poor flocking to the City, it was an easy matter to buy 
votes — the hungry or greedy cared not a bit about who 
was in power. The Republic, supposedly a Democracy 
now with officials often living in luxur.N' and laziness 
and the proletariat caring not a whit, was in reality 
"in the rule of a worthless, urban mob." 

Efforts were made by some good and honorable 
leaders to rectify the evils of this situation. By their ef- 
forts and the opoosition to them, there was brought about 
what had never existed in Rome before, blood shed and 
civil strife over political matters in the very streets 
of Rome. This strife is known in history as the conflict 
between the Optimates and the Populares, that is, the 
conservative element against the more liberal minded 
of the nobility. The first efforts at reform were made 
by two distinguished young tribunes — Tiberius and 
Gaius Gracchus — both of whom tried to help the idle 
poor by getting them out of Rome and putting them 
in the country in the place of slaves. This involved legis- 
lating against the wholesale practice of the senatorial 
class of buying and selling public lands as if they were 
privately owned. The powerful wrath of the senators was 
aroused; Tiberius was killed in mob violence of which 
Roman senators were the leaders and Gaius, in order 
to prevent his own murder, committed suicide and three 
thousand of his followers were killed. 

Gone now are the senators who 250 years earlier, 
having done all they could for their country against the 
Gauls, sat down in the dignity of their offices to die with 
her. Gone too Cincinnatus and his like, who having been 
given a task to do, performed the assigned duty with de- 
votion, then laid down his power immediately. From 
the time of the death of Gaius Gracchus in 124 B. C. to 
the end of the Republic was a time of great or powerful 
generals who, having been called on for some specific 
duty, assumed or were given the title of Dictator and did 
not or could not lay down their power until their death. 

There was Marius, a superb and beloved leader of 
the popular party who himself was responsible for much 
of the machinery of change in attitude toward the gov- 
ernment. When, in 103, he was called upon to take an 
army north to keep out the first invasion of Germanic 
tribes, he enlisted men having no property — a condition 
which up to this time was illegal. His soliders, and those 
of generals to follow, consisting of men who had no 
other future prospects, stayed in the army as long as 
possible, became professional soldiers, whose hopes 
were entirely in their leader, and who were ready to fol- 
low him everywhere, even against the government. 

There was Sulla, a member of the aristocracy who 
used his army to enforce his will upon the state to have 
what Rome had never had before — a written consititu- 
tion and a legal recognition of the Senate. The forces 
of Marius and Sulla came into conflict — time after time 
the Marians were in supremacy and time after time 
the Sullans were most powerful. Each put to death 
thousands and even tens of thousands of the followers 
of his rival. In this kind of continuing rivalry, much of 
it personal, caused by the competition of generals who 
tried to satisfy their own ambitions or tried to satis- 
fy the claims of their loyal soldiers for land as a re- 


ward of services — the old type of loyalty to the gov- 
ernment was forgotten. The state, the govern- 
ment came second to personal attainment and reward 
of service; in fact, the safety of the government itself 
depended upon the loyalty of the generals and, "Since," 
as Barrow says, "the government did not deserve loyalty 
and generals had rival generals to consider," the gov- 
ernment was on the losing side. Marius nor Sulla actual- 
ly tried to overthrow the government but both disregard 
ed it when their personal interests required. 

The last phase of the Revolution or Civil Strife and 
indeed the last phase of the Republic finally was de- 
cided between two of the greatest of its military com- 
manders — Gnaeus Pompey and Julius Caesar. Both 
were born in Rome of aristocratic families — Pompey 
in 106 and Caesar in 100 B. C. Pompey's allegiance for 
years wavered between the Senatorial and Popular par- 
ties, in the end being given to the Senatorial. Caesar was 
always a sympathiser and leader of the Popular Party. 
As young men they had cooperated for their mutual in- 
terests even forming with the millionaire Crassus an 
alliance for this purpose. The alliance, called the First 
Triumvirate, was able to bring about almost any desired 
end for its members. To seal the bargain Pompey mar- 
ried Caesar's daughter Julia. 

Caesar was elected consul in 59 B.C. and soon after 
his consulship became proconsul of the provinces in the 
north of Italy. Appointed for a period of five years, he 
was reappointed for five more. Of his exploits there 
everybody knows. Nobody at that time, least of all he 
himself, knew what a military genius he would be. Dur- 
ing the nine years he was in these provinces he conquer- 
ed all Gaul (completing Rome's encirclement of the 
Mediterranean), drove the Germans out of the province 
and went into Britain twice making no effort, however, 
to take it. He lost only two battles in all those years. 
Back in Rome Crassus died, Julia died and the Tri- 
umvirate ended. And Pompey, already fearful of Cae- 
sar's growing power and popularity with the people, per- 
suaded the Senate which now did not know whom to fear 
inore — Caesar or Pompey — to demand that Caesar give 
up his legions. Caesar refused, crossed the Rubicon, 
and the 'third plTase of the Civil War was on. It was 
again a question of the soldiers' loyalty to a particular 
general even against the government. 

History has it that Pompey's main ambition was 
only to command the great campaigns of his day and 
that he wanted only to be "the guardian of the Republic, 
and not its master." But he was destined to be neither. 
An excellent general, he was crushed beneath the jug- 
gernaut of Caesar, a greater general and more ambi- 
tious, and his soliders who were almost fantically devot- 
ed to him. Pompey fled to .Africa where he was mur- 
dered. Caesar, everywhere victorious, bcame the undis- 
puted master of Rome, the idol of the people, and the 
recipient of inumerable honors by the undependable 
senators. Nevertheless, some aristrocrats, believing that 
Caesar intended to make himself a supreme ruler — 
a king — a word still hated, on the Ides of March in 
44 B. C. stabbed him to death at the foot of the statue 
that second Brutus who, while having the same motiva- 
tion as his ancestor to rid his country of a king, 
did not, like his ancestory, have any constructive plan 
as to what was to follow. What did follow was seventeen 
years of civil war and the absolute and certain know- 
ledge that the Republic was dead. All hope of rule by 
the people was obsolete and the democratic ideal on 
which the Roman Republic had been founded 500 years 
earlier had failed. 

But although the Republic as Rome's form of gov- 
ernment passed into oblivion this is not in any way to 

say that Rome herself was finished. She lived on for 
another 500 years as one of the greatest empires the world 
has ever known. Her influence, though not always rec- 
ognized, lives today in many countries of the world. 

In conclusion let me make a brief summary and a 
few closing remarks. The history of the Roman Re- 
public is the account of a long period of 250 years of 
a great people's struggle toward a democracy — a goal 
actually achieved but never put into effect, for with 
ihe Punic Wars and conquest outside Italy there began 
another long period of 250 years of the journey away 
from democracy. The people achieved equality with the 
patricians and accepted with grace most of the reforms 
which were forced upon them. But the people likewise 
lost this equality — almost by default. For having come 
to the beginning of the Punic Wars — equal but having 
little experience in governing during a crisis — they al- 
lowed the Senate, strong and experienced, to become 
predominant once again. The way down also was ac- 
celerated by the conquest of more lands than Rome 
could govern well — and more wealth than she could as- 
similate; corruption developed both inside the state and 
outside — in officials and in private individuals. In ad- 
dition, the poor and homeless became professional sold- 
iers of leaders powerful enough to defy the government 
and to take, one after the other, longer and longer 
steps toward the seizure of supreme power — until it 
was, in fact, accomplished by Julius Caesar. It cannot 
be positively stated by anyone what would have hap- 
pened to Rome if Caesar had lived. But he did not and 
the Republic died. Even in her dying years she produc- 
ed famous men whose names are known and highly re- 
spected today — the great writers Catullus, Lucretius, 
and Caesar himself. Best of all — Cicero — a man who 
even as the Republic was taking its last gasp, was plead- 
ing for a reconciliation among all men and a return to 
the democratic way of life. 

Let no one minimize the importance of the achieve- 
ments of Rome and the Romans. Consider the Greeks 
of the 5th century, of course, as the greatest achievers 
in art and culture of every kind. This was their strong 
point. It was not Rome's. She too was great in the arts 
that were natural to her. Her success in absorbing both 
Greece and the East from where Greece herself had be- 
come civilized, and the loyalty which she inspired in 
most of those she conquered, the laws she enacted 
along her way — these served as background for her 
talents and throw into sharp relief the inability of the 
Greeks to cooperate in any political sense or to form any 
kind of a united state. When Rome conquered the Greeks, 
she recognized their greatest skills for what they were 
— excellent, refined and timeless. As she had done in 
the case of the Etruscans, she took them over, ap- 
propriated them, or borrowed them. She deserves credit 
lor having preserved much that she might have destroy- 
ed. Generally speaking, she never admired or respect- 
ed the Greeks themselves from whom she borrowed 
them. She looked down on the Greeks of the 3rd and 
2nd centuries B. C. as being people who had not lived 
up to their own former greatness and had themselves 
to look back to the 5th century for inspiration. But she 
took their artistic and professional skills, stamped them 
v.'ith her own character and thus brought into being what 
is known as Graeco - Roman civihzation. 

As the Republic receded into the background, Rome 
and the world stood at the beginning of two new exper- 
iences — aesthetically, the spread of Graeco - Roman 
civilization and politically, the coming into being of 
the great Roman Empire.

due. (Remember! Everything you own is included 
in your estate for estate tax purposes.) 

2. Assets are valued at current market values at the 

date of death (or, at your executor's option, one 
year later), with cost price of no significance. 

3. Even jointly owned assets must be listed on the re- 

turn and the entire value will be taxed unless 
your executor can prove that the survivor con- 
tributed part or all of the cost. 

4. Life insurance proceeds are included and taxed un- 

less you have relinquished all incidents of own- 
ership such as the right to change the beneficiary 
of the policy, the right to cancel, give away or 
surrender the policy for cash value or the right 
to borrow against it. 

5. The "marital deduction" cannot exceed 50% of the 

■'adjusted gross estate."

ture — see your lawyer.

Presidential Views 

hy Dr. Benjamin B. Graves 

One college president recently described his personal 
plight at this particular moment in history as follows, 
"I feel that I am in a baseball throwing gallery at a 
country fair with most of my friends and all of my 
enemies coming by daily to try out their pitching arms." 
When one considers the fact that a college today, es- 
pecially one in the private sector, has some twelve con- 
stituencies to which it must respond, the foregoing anal- 
ogy is not too far from an accurate portrayal. 

My own intuitive feeling as I look at Millsaps in this 
time is perhaps threefold — thankfulness, concern, and 
exhilaration. Thankfulness for the trust which the Ford 
Foundation Challenge Grant Program has given us 
along with the boost afforded the College through mag- 
nificent response to the Mississippi Methodist Action 
Crusade; a continuing concern with constantly spiraling 
costs in colleges and what seems to be almost a national 
epidemic of unrest especially among our young people; 
and exhilaration in the light of some tremendous oppor- 
tunities and possibilities for Millsaps as she looks to the 

Though we are not yet ready to say, "We've made 
it," I believe that we shall achieve the goal of $3,750,000 
necessary to fully qualify for the $1,500,000 proffered us 
under the Ford Foundation Challenge Grant Program. 
This will represent the most significant fimd-raising at- 
tainment ever realized in a single instance by a pri- 
vate higher educational institution in Mississippi. Lest 
we conclude that our task is complete, I should point 
out that Millsaps will have, even assuming success in 
this effort, only one-fifth of the average endowment re- 
sources available to the more renowned institutions in 
the nation of our size with whom we attempt to com- 
pete. Thus, major fund-raising must become a continu- 
ing part of our program of progress at Millsaps. 

As I have said so often, though our endowment will 
soon be over $5 million, it should be $25 million after 79 
years of a valiant history. If you consider the latter fig- 
ure ridiculously high, may I point out that I had lunch 
a couple of weeks ago with the Vice - President of Wel- 
lesley College, a fine woman's college near Boston. Wel- 
lesley has an endowment of $125 million, tuition twice 
our own, and a student body only slightly larger. 

On the matter of concerns, I must again speak to 
the point of administering the precious heritage of 
America's colleges and universities. An article in this 
issue of Major Notes discusses this crucial issue in some 
detail and for those who wish copies of the entire ad- 
dress, from which this article is extracted, they are 
available upon request. As a generalization, I shall 
say that I sympathize with some if not many of the con- 
cerns expressed by today's youth, but I cannot agree 
with the destructive and anarchic tactics which a small, 
but much publicized, minority has chosen to use. Theirs 
is a desecration of the democratic process which our 
nation has so nurtured and cherished. 

An additional concern is the continuing spiral of in- 
flation which is especially damaging to our independent 
institutions of higher education who are living to a large 
extent on relatively fixed incomes. As an illustration, I 
might point out to you that it is our estimate that infla-

tion in this nation in 1968 alone, which was most strongly 
felt in the service sector of the economy of which we are 
a part, cost Millsaps in the neighborhood of $200,000. 

On the positive and exhilarating side, however, our 
Board of Trustees, in a special meeting on March 29, 
approved two plans which have been under study here at 
the College for the last four years. The first is to recom- 
mend to the Annual Conferences of the United Metho- 
dist Church in Mississippi a plan of expansion for the 
Board of Trustees which would give it additional breadth 
and strength. 

The second proposal approved was a concept which 
we believe to be unique in utilizing the very valuable 
northern part of the Millsaps campus. The concept en- 
visions a very high quality complex planned and co- 
ordinated to encompass a long range development of a 
pre-built college or university. In the first stage, it is 
proposed that this complex be income producing, but it 
would be so designed and so structured that in its second 
stage the complex would be readily convertible and 
legally reclaimable for college and/or university use. 
The entire development would be under the control and 
direction of the Millsaps Board of Trustees. 

As interested constituents, may I urge that each 
of you consider these proposals and lend your support 
and assistance as we proceed with them. 

The Changing Campus 

The special report included in the Spring 
edition of MAJOR NOTES is designed for the 
hundreds of Millsaps alumni and alumnae who 
have been troubled by the news they've been 
reading about America's institutions of higher 

The torture of adolescence, capable of gene- 
rating a revolutionary spirit, was perhaps best 
described by St. Augustine when he was a 19- 
year-old youth. "My native country was a tor- 
ment to me, and mi/ father's house a strange un- 
happiness, and I hated all places," he wrote. 

Hopefully, the report goes beyond the scare 
headlines to a deeper, more accurate understaiid- 
ing of the things that are happening today at 

the colleges and universities. 

The report reveals how relationships are 
changing between the people who comprise the 
higher education community — the students; the 
faculty; presidents and their administrations; 
trustees and regents; and, not least, the alumni 
and alumnae. 

Without underestimating the role of the 
noisy, open unconstructive "fringe" elements, it 
puts them in perspective. And it points up the 
big lesson to be learned: that America's colleges 
and universities, far from being moribund, aie 
showing an extraordinary resiliency, an ability 
to accept change that may surpass that of even 
the severest critic. 

Statistics released by the National Student 
Association show there were 292 major student 
demonstrations on 163 campuses during the 1967- 
68 academic year. Research by the University of 
Chicago indicates at least 400 additional colleges 
had minor, more orderly demonstrations. This is 
fully one-fourth of all colleges in the United 

It did not matter tvhether the college teas 
private or public — disturbances occurred in 
nearly equal numbers. 

Estimates put the number of students di- 
rectly involved in these campus protests at rough- 
lij 54,000; slightly more than 2.5 percent of the 
schools' total undergraduate enrollment. From 
these figures it would appear the percentage of 
involveinent is small, but the commotion is loud. 

The fuels of the revolutionary spirit, arise 
from many sources — adolescence, the ill-con- 
sidered exhortations of the elders, insecurity caus- 
ed by rapid change, and the redefinition of re- 

The differences of the changing relation- 
ships, aheady referred to, are chanted taimtingh/ 
by pop singer Bob Dylan, "There's something go- 
ing on here but you don't know what it is, do 
you, Mr. Jones?" 

More than 11 million students will be en- 
rolled in college by 1975, with increasing num- 
bers going on to post graduate work. 

A lot of those comprising the higher educa- 
tion community have been finding out — and 

Managing Today's College 

By Dr. Benjamin B. Graves 
Millsaps College President 

Dr. Graves 

Hardly a week passes that some local, national or 
international incident does not highlight problems with 
the youth of today. Nowhere is the issue more sharply 
focused than on the college or university campus. 

With such headlines, it is not surprising that parents 
wring their hands, administrators seek divine guidance, 
and some people ask the intriguing question, "Who's 
managing today's college?" Before we look at the 
sources and possible solutions to some of these problems, 
let us recognize certain underlying but salient factors. 

First, a degree of intellectual ferment on a college 
campus is normal and healthy. The mind, like the body, 
is stimulated and thrives in an atmosphere of competi- 
tion. Open discussions and honorable debate are cherish- 
ed academic traditions which must be preserved. To- 
day's students, though sometimes prone to excesses, are 
perhaps the most serious of this, the Twentieth Century. 

Second, colleges inherit young men and women at 
their most difficult period of life. Students are approach- 
ing the threshold to maturity, though admittedly some 
never get across; ''feeling one's oats" has become an 
accepted, albeit an unappreciated, part of the process. 
Radicals at 21 are often presidents of the PTA at 35. 

Third, students in this age are products of a per- 
missive and affluent society, for which the school sys- 
tem has only partial resiwnsibility. We must recognize 
that our problems extend beyond the campus and involve 
those of total society. Perhaps the really crucial issue 
of our time is to define the parameters of freedom so 
that all of us may live with its benefits but without the 
chaos and anarchy which license engenders. 


A specific case can serve as an illustration. One ot 
our women's colleges a few years ago greatly relaxed 
its residence policies. A year later, this school suddenly 
discovered that an abnormal number of its students 
were under psychiatric care. This same institution to- 
day has been forced to reinstitute reasonable standards 
in order to maintain a degree of stability. Even more 
significantly, it carefully screens candidates applying 
and requires the equivalent of a psychiatric examination 
before acceptance. The great majority of rejections are 
based upon emotional rather than academic factors. 
Man has shown little tendency to function in an atmo- 
sphere of total freedom. Conditions in the newly created 
African states and many of the Latin American imiver- 

"I have no desire to see our in- 
stittitions become captives of either 
the ultra right or the ultra left." 

sities stand as additional exannples of anarchic freedom. 
But what is freedom? Is it a combination of things 
enumerated in our Bill of Rights? Did Abraham Lincoln 
state the essence of freedom in his Gettysburg address? 
Did Patrick Henry capture the idea with this famous 
dictum "Give me liberty or give me death"? Does free- 
dom include the right, which was hotly debated in the 
State of North Carolina, to invite speakers onto college 
campuses who, in their prior speeches and writings, 
have advocated an overthrow of the United States Gov- 
ernment? Does freedom include the right, as some have 
insisted at the University of California, to use four-letter 
words with abandon in public speech and print on a col- 
lege campus? Does freedom include the right to dyna- 
mite an automobile that is occupied by someone with 
whom you disagree, or to use chairs of baseball bats 
to attack a member of the press? Does freedom of as- 
sembly include the right to bring the life of a city, com- 
munity or college to a standstill with lie-ins, sit-ins, 
teach-ins, or massive demonstrations? Does freedom in- 
clude the right to loot and burn substantial sections of 
cities? Does freedom include the right to forbid a man 
to vote because of the color of his skin? 

I have no desire to see our institutions become cap- 
tives of either the ultra right or the ultra left. Neither 
of those extremes represents the best in America's past 
nor the hope for her future. 

Explore New Areas 

Freedom has been defined as "liberation from slav- 
ery, imprisonment or restraint." But Bernard Baruch 
said that, in the last analysis, "Our only freedom is the 
freedom to discipline ourselves." 

All of us are anxious to see our colleges and uni- 
versities function with the greatest degree of academic 
and personal freedom possible. We should, in fact, ex- 
plore new areas. I would be delighted, for example, to 
see honor systems become the rule rather than the ex- 
ception on our campuses. Unless, however, there is a 
willingness on the part of each member of the college 
community to accept his concomitant share of respon- 
sibility, we shall be left with two unhappy alternatives. 
First, if our freedom becomes license, we shall have 
chaos and our lives and that of our institution could be 
trapped in a cataclysm of turmoil and disillusionment. 
Or, second, we shall be forced to institute more rigid 
controls. Neither alternative provides a satisfactory ed- 
ucational environment. 


Millsaps, like all other schools, has been forced to 
confront some of these problems. I would like to suggest 
some approaches which may be useful in looking at 
critical issues. Before we make decisions, let each of 
us ask ourselves some searching questions, such as: 

1. What are the facts and issues surrounding a par- 
ticular case? I cannot accept the definition of 
truth as one person recently defined it for me: 
"Truth is what I bclie\e it to be." 1 am reminded 
at this point of Thomas Jefferson's statement 
when he said that newspapers ought to be divid- 
ed into four sections with labels as follows: facts, 
probabilities, possibilities, and lies. Today's faster 
communications media make the statement even 
more pertinent. If truth is what each of us be- 
lieves it to be, then our purpose in being in col- 
lege is essentially negated. 

2. Who are the people involved in this issue? Do they 
represent responsible leadership? 

3. What is the cause? Is it a just one and are there 
secondary causes that will be served or disserved? 

4. Are the proposed methods honorable? Here I am 
reminded of a renowned Millsaps professor, J. 
Reese Lin, and his famous dictum, which I think 
is a useful criterion for determining one's own 
action on moral and ethical questions. Professor 
Lin used to say, "What would be the results of 
the action which I am contemplating if a majority 
of the people followed my lead?" 

5. What impact will my action have on other persons 
to whom I have an obligation and on the organi- 
zation which I represent? 

When we examine the issues in managing a college 
and approach these crucial decisions in a spirit of in- 
dividual responsibility, honor and justice, I believe that 
we shall continue to find the answers which have given 
an aura of uniqueness to Millsaps — a community bea- 
con where freedom and responsibility have been whole- 
somely combined. 

Let us not fall into the trap to which history at- 
tributes the downfall of Greece's Golden Age, that is, 
freedom from responsibility. Let us strive to keep this 
beacon shining for those of us here now and those yet to 
come. Perhaps, too, our beacon will extend to the so- 
ciety of which we are a part.

Ford Foundation Challenge 
—Almost Met 

By Barry Brindley 

Director of Develo{)ment 
and Public Relations 

"Our Ford Grant represents con- 
siderahh/ more than national recogni- 
tion of our status as a liberal arts 


The deadline is June 30, 1969. $3,750,000 must be in 
hand by that time to receive all of the $1,500,000 from 
the Ford Foundation. As this article goes to the printer 
about $43,399 remains to be received. 

Three years ago, when all of this began, the leader- 
ship of the campaign produced a booklet entitled "To- 
ward a Destiny of Excellence." Contained in this booklet 
was a statement concerning the meaning of the Ford 
Foundation Challenge which is worth repeating because 
it places the emphasis where it should be placed — on 
the program, purpose and future of Millsaps. . . 

"Our Ford Grant represents considerably more than 
national recognition of our status as a liberal arts col- 
lege. It also proves the value of doing our own home- 
work, making a basic self-examination of our academic 
posture and projecting our needs into a plan for future 

Moving Ahead on Balance 

"We are well aware that no college, however good, 
can ride on its reputation alone. It must either move 
ahead with the times or sink into the doldrums of me- 
diocrity. That is why our present plans call for moving 
ahead on balance, expanding our educational plant as 
we also underwrite the quality of those who teach and 
learn within it. 

"We are also aware that this move forward will re- 
quire more than self-examination and planning. Specific 
action by a well-informed leadership will be necessary 
if we are to reach our goal. 

"This means raising $3.75 million in three years 
(July 1, 1966 - June 30, 1969) to match Ford's $1.5 million 

challenge, an endeavor not yet undertaken by any pri- 
vate educational institution in our State." 

We have almost met this challenge. It is a chal- 
lenge which is a great deal more than raising a specific 
number of dollars. It is a challenge to insure the future 
of an institution of higher learning. It is a challenge to 
provide an educational experience which will equip 
young men and women for responsible lives of service. 
It is a challenge to sustain a program of the highest 
possible quality, because only the best will be good 

Substantial Results 

We have already experienced substantial results: 

— Library collection has been increased from 53,500 
volumes to 74,000 volumes. 

— Christian Center stage facilities have been complete- 
ly remodeled. Building has been air-conditioned. 

— Increased Scholarship Support for deserving and 
talented students. 

— Marked increase in faculty salaries. 

— Construction is in progress on one of the most excit- 
ing academic buildings in the nation — the Academic 

You can see from this list of accomplishments that 
some of our most pressing immediate needs are being 
met. If we are to achieve our "Destiny of Excellence," 
however, we must not relax. 

The deadline of June 30, 1969, is fast approaching 
Please consider what part you can play in helping meet 
the challenge.

Savings and Loan Association, Jack- 
son, and First National Bank, Jack- 

In addition, he is president of the 
Metropolitan YMCA and a director of 
the National Association of Manufac- 
turers. He attends Galloway Memorial 
Methodist Church, Jackson. 

Estate Planning 

The Estate Planning Council of Mississippi in co- 
operation with Millsaps College sponsored an Estate 
Planning Seminar on Friday, Feb. 28, on the campus. 
The seminar was a day-long event held in the Boyd 
Campbell Student Center. 

Dr. Benjamin B. Graves, Millsaps president, and 
E. Griffin Alford, president of the Estate Planning Coun- 
cil, made introductory remarks to open the session 

Justin Cox, attorney with the Jackson law firm of 
Wells, Gerald, Wells, Brand, Watters and Cox, gave the 
opening address, "The Necessity of Making a Will," in 
which he discussed both the personal and tax advantages 
of having a properly prepared will. 

Thomas R. Ward, currently practicing law in Meri- 
dian, Jackson and Pascagoula, as a member of the 
firm of Ward, Mestayer and Knight, next spoke on 
"Federal Estate and Gift Taxes." He outlined the his- 
tory and reasons for the current tax laws and men- 
tioned several ways of taking advantage of the benefits 
Congress makes possible with regard to estate and gift 
tax laws. 

After luncheon in the A. L. Rogers Room, James 
Allen, vice president and trust officer of Deposit Guaranty 
National Bank gave a talk on "The Advantages of a 
Trust." The speaker reviewed many types of trust situa- 
tions and specified available benefits to be gained through 
professional financial management. 

William J. Sweeting, account executive with Kennedy 
Sinclaire, Inc., of Montclair, N. J., concluded the semi- 
nar with an address on "A Planned Approach to 
Charitable Giving," which he illustrated with slides. 

About 75 persons from all parts of Mississippi at- 

Many alumni had a chance to hear the MiUsaps Singers during their recent Spring tour which took them through 
SIX states and included 10 performances. The choral group sang in Longview, Dallas and Lubbock in Texas; Denver 
and Englewood, Colorado; Hesston, Kansas; Kansas City and Columbia, Missouri; Little Rock, Arkansas: and Mem- 
phis, Tennessee. 

A Special Report 


Charge ? 

Trustees . . . pi^esidents . . .faculty . . . students, past and present: 
who governs this society timt we call 'the academic commnnity^? 

THE CRY has been heard on many a campus 
this year. It came from the campus neigh- 
borhood, from state legislatures, from cor- 
porations trying to recruit students as em- 
ployees, from the armed services, from the donors of 
funds, from congressional committees, from church 
groups, from the press, and even from the police: 
"Who's in charge there?" 

Surprisingly the cry also came from "inside" the 
colleges and universities — from students and alumni, 
from faculty members and administrators, and even 
from presidents and trustees: 
"Who's in charge here?" 

And there was, on occasion, this variation: "Who 
should be in charge here?" 

STRANGE quESTiONS to Hsk about these highly 
organized institutions of our highly organ- 
I ized society? A sign, as some have said, that 
our colleges and universities are hopelessly 
chaotic, that they need more "direction," that they 
have lagged behind other institutions of our society 
in organizing themselves into smooth-running, 
efficient mechanisms? 

Or do such explanations miss the point? Do they 
overlook much of the complexity and subtlety (and 
perhaps some of the genius) of America's higher 
educational enterprise? 

It is important to try to know. 

Here is one reason: 

► Nearly 7-million students are now enrolled in 
the nation's colleges and universities. Eight years 
hence, the total will have rocketed past 9.3-million. 
The conclusion is inescapable: what affects our col- 
leges and universities will affect unprecedented 
numbers of our people — and, in unprecedented 
ways, the American character. 

Here is another: 

► "The campus reverberates today perhaps in 
part because so many have come to regard [it] as 
the most promising of all institutions for developing 
cures for society's ills." [Lloyd H. Elliott, president 
of George Washington University] 

Here is another: 

► "Men must be discriminating appraisers of 
their society, knowing coolly and precisely what it is 
about society that thwarts or limits them and there- 
fore needs modification. 

"And so they must be discriminating protectors 
of their institutions, preserving those features that 
nourish and strengthen them and make them more 
free." [John W. Gardner, at Cornell University] 

But who appraises our colleges and universities? 
Who decides whether (and how) they need modify- 
ing? Who determines what features to preserve; 
which features "nourish and strengthen them and 
make them more free?" In short: 

Who's in chai-ge there? 

Who's in Charge— I 

The Trustees 

BY THE LETTER of the lavv, the people in 
cliarge of our colleges and universities are 
I the trustees or regents— 25,000 of them, 
according to the educated guess of their 
principal national organization, the Association of 
Governing Boards. 

"In the long history of higher education in 
America," said one astute observer recendy, 

CopjTight 1969 

by Editorial Projects for Education, Inc. 

"trustees have seldom been cast in a heroic role." 
For decades they have been blamed for whatever 
faults people have found with the nation's colleges 
and universities. 

Trustees have been charged, variously, with 
representing the older generation, the white race, 
religious orthodoxy, political powerholders, business 
and economic conservatism — in short, The Estab- 
lishment. Other critics — among them orthodox 
theologians, political powerholders, business and 
economic conservatives — have accused trustees of 
not being Establishment enough. 

On occasion they have earned the criticisms. In 
the early days of American higher education, when 
most colleges were associated with churches, the 
trustees were usually clerics with stern ideas of what 
should and should not be taught in a church-related 
institution. They intruded freely in curriculums, 
courses, and the behavior of students and faculty 

On many Protestant campuses, around the turn 
of the century, the clerical influence was lessened 
and often withdrawn. Clergymen on their boards of 
trustees were replaced, in many instances, by 
businessmen, as the colleges and universities sought 
trustees who could underwrite their solvency. As 
state systems of higher education were founded, they 
too were put under the control of lay regents or 

Trustee-faculty conflicts grew. Infringements of 
academic freedom led to the founding, in 1915, of 
the American Association of University Professors. 
Through the association, faculty members developed 
and gained wide acceptance of strong principles of 
academic freedom and tenure. The conflicts eased — 
but even today many faculty members watch their 
institution's board of trustees guardedly. 

In the past several years, on some campuses, 
trustees have come under new kinds of attack. 

► At one university, students picketed a meeting 
of the governing board because two of its members, 
they said, led companies producing weapons used in 
the war in Vietnam. 

► On another campus, students (joined by some 
faculty members) charged that college funds had 
been invested in companies operating in racially 
divided South Africa. The investments, said the 
students, should be canceled; the board of trustees 
should be censured. 

► At a Catholic institution, two years ago, most 
students and faculty members went on strike be- 
cause the trustees (comprising 33 clerics and 1 1 lay- 

men) had dismissed a liberal theologian from the 
faculty. The board reinstated him, and the strike 
ended. A year ago the board was reconstituted to 
consist of 15 clerics and 15 laymen. (A similar shift 
to laymen on their governing boards is taking place 
at many Catholic colleges and universities.) 

► A state college president, ordered by his 
trustees to reopen his racially troubled campus, re- 
signed because, he said, he could not "reconcile 
effectively the conflicts between the trustees" and 
other groups at his institution. 

How DO MOST TRUSTEES measure up to 
their responsibilities? How do they react 
to the lightning-bolts of criticism that, 
by their position, they naturally attract? 
We have talked in recent months with scores of 
trustees and have collected the written views of 
many others. Our conclusion: With some' notable 
(and often highly vocal) exceptions, both the 
breadth and depth of many trustees' understanding 
of higher education's problems, including the touch- 
iness of their own position, are greater than most 
people suspect. 

Many boards of trustees, we found, are showing 
deep concern for the views of students and are going 
to extraordinary lengths to know them better. In- 
creasing numbers of boards are rewriting their 
by-laws to include students (as well as faculty 
members) in their membership. 

William S. Paley, chairman of CBS and a trustee 
of Columbia University, said after the student out- 
breaks on that troubled campus: 

"The university may seem [to students] like just 
one more example of the establishment's trying to 
run their lives without consulting them. ... It is 
essential that we make it possible for students to 
work for the correction of such conditions legitimate- 
ly and eflPectively rather than compulsively and 
violently. . . . 

"Legally the university is the board of trustees, 
but actually it is very largely the community of 
teachers and students. That a board of trustees 
should commit a university community to policies 
and actions without the components of that com- 
munity participating in discussions leading to such 
commitments has become obsolete and unworkable." 

Less often than one might expect, considering 
some of the provocations, did we find boards of 
trustees giving "knee-jerk" reactions even to the 
most extreme demands presented to them. Not very 
long ago, most boards might have rejected such 

The role of higher education's trustees often is misinterpreted and misunderstood 

As others seek a greater voice, presidents are natuial targets for their attack 

demands out of hand; no longer. James M. Hester, 
the president of New York Uni\'ersity, described the 

"To the activist mind, the fact that our board 
of trustees is legally entrusted with the property and 
privileges of operating an educational institution is 
more an affront than an acceptable fact. What is 
considered relevant is what is called the social 
reality, not the legal authority. 

"A decade ago the reaction of most trustees and 
presidents to assertions of this kind was a forceful 
statement of the rights and i-esponsibilities of a 
private institution to do as it sees fit. While faculty 
control over the curriculum and, in many cases, 
student discipline was delegated by most boards 
long before, the power of the trustees to set university 
policy in other areas and to control the institution 
financially was unquestioned. 

"Ten years ago authoritarian answers to radical 
questions were frequently given with confidence. 
Now, however, authoritarian answers, which often 
provide emotional release when contemplated, some- 
how seem inappropriate when delivered." 

ASA RESULT, trustccs everywhere are re-exam- 

f^k ining their role in the governance of 
f ^ colleges and universities, and changes 
.^ M seem certain. Often the changes will be 
subde, perhaps consisting of a shift in attitude, as 
Pi-esident Hester suggested. But they will be none 
the less profound. 

In the process it seems likely that trustees, as 
Vice-Chancellor Ernest L. Boyer of the State Uni- 
versity of New York put it, will "recognize that the 
college is not only a place where past achievements 
are preserved and transmitted, but also a place 
where the conventional wisdom is constantly sub- 
jected to merciless scrutiny." 

Mr. Boyer continued: 

"A board member who accepts this fact will 
remain poised when surrounded by cross-currents of 
contro\-ersy. . . . He will come to view friction as an 
essential ingredient in the life of a university, and 
vigorous debate not as a sign of decadence, but of 
robust health. 

"And, in recognizing these facts for himself, the 
trustee will be equipped to do battle \vhen the 
college — and implicitly the whole enterprise of 
higher education — is threatened by earnest primi- 
tives, single-minded fanatics, or calculating dema- 

Who's in charge? Every eight years, 
on the average, the members of a 
college or university board must 
provide a large part of the answer 
by reaching, in Vice-Clhancellor Boyer's words, 
"the most crucial decision a trustee will ever be 
called upon to make." 

They must choose a new president for the place 
and, as they have done with his predecessors, dele- 
gate much of their authority to him. 

The task is not easy. At any given moment, it has 
been estimated, some 300 colleges and universities 
in the United States are looking for presidents. The 
qualifications are high, and the requirements are so 
exacting that many top-flight persons to whom a 
presidency is offered turn down the job. 

As the noise and violence level of campus protests 
has risen in recent years, the search for presidents 
has grown more difficult — and the turndowns more 

"Fellow targets," a speaker at a meeting of col- 
lege presidents and other administrators called his 
audience last fall. The audience laughed nervously. 
The description, they knew, was all too accurate. 

"Even in the absence of strife and disorder, 
academic administrators are the men caught in the 
middle as the defenders — and, altogether too often 
these days, the beleaguered defenders — of institu- 
tional integrity," Logan Wilson, president of the 
American Council on Education, has said. "Al- 
though college or university presidencies are still 
highly respected positions in our society, growing 
numbers of campus malcontents seem bent on doing 
everything they can to harass and discredit the 
performers of these key roles." 

This is unfortunate — the more so because the 
harassment frequently stems from a deep misunder- 
standing of the college adniinistrator's function. 

The most successful administrators cast them- 
selves in a "staff" or "service" role, with the well- 
being of the faculty and students their central con- 
cern. AssuiTiing such a role often takes a large 
measure of stamina and goodwill. At many in- 
stitutions, both faculty members and students ha- 
bitually blame administrators for whatever ails them 
— and it is hard for even the most dedicated of ad- 
ministrators to remember that they and the faculty- 
student critics are on the same side. 

"Without administrative leadership," philosopher 
Sidney Hook has observed, "every institution . . . 
runs down hill. The greatness of a university consists 

Who's in Charge -II 

The President 

A college's heart is its faculty. What part should it have in running the place? 

predominantly in the greatness of its faculty. But 
faculties ... do not themselves build great faculties. 
To build great faculties, administrative leadership 
is essential." 

Shortly after the start of this academic year, 
however, the American Council on Education re- 
leased the results of a survey of what 2,040 ad- 
ministrators, trustees, faculty members, and students 
foresaw for higher education in the 1970's. Most 
thought "the authority of top administrators in 
making broad policy decisions will be significantly 
eroded or diffused." And three out of four faculty 
members said they found the prospect "desirable." 

Who's in charge? Clearly the answer to that 
question changes with every passing day. 

WITH IT ALL, the job of the president 
has grown to unprecedented propor- 
tions. The old responsibilities of lead- 
ing the faculty and students have 
proliferated. The new responsibilities of money- 
raising and business management have been heaped 
on top of them. The brief span of the typical presi- 
dency — about eight years — testifies to the roughness 
of the task. 

Yet a president and his administration very often 
exert a decisive influence in governing a college or 
university. One president can set a pace and tone 
that invigorate an entire institution. Another presi- 
dent can enervate it. 

At Columbia University, for instance, following 
last year's disturbances there, an impartial fact- 
finding commission headed by Archibald Cox traced 
much of the unrest among students and faculty 
members to "Columbia's organization and style of 

"The administration of Columbia's affairs too 
often conveyed an attitude of authoritarianism and 
invited distrust. In part, the appearance resulted 
from style; for example, it gave affront to read that 
an influential university official was no more in- 
terested in student opinion on matters of intense 
concern to students than he was in their taste for 

"In part, the appearance reflected the true state 
of affairs. . . . The president was unwilling to sur- 
render absolute disciplinary powers. In addition, 
government by improvisation seems to have been 
not an exception, but the rule." 

At San Francisco State College, last December, 
the leadership of Acting President S. I. Hayakawa, 

whether one approved it or not, was similarly de- 
cisive. He confronted student demonstrators, prom- 
ised to suspend any faculty members or students 
who disrupted the campus, reopened the institution 
under police protection, and then considered the 
dissidents' demands. 

But looking ahead, he said, "We must eventually 
put campus discipline in the hands of responsible 
faculty and student groups who will work coopera- 
tively with administrations . . . ." 

Who's in charge? "However the power 
mixture may be stirred," says Dean 
W. Donald Bowles of American Uni- 
versity, "in an institution aspiring to 
quality, the role of the faculty remains central. No 
president can prevail indefinitely without at least 
the tacit support of the faculty. Few deans will last 
more than a year or two if the faculty does not 
approve their policies." 

The power of the faculty in the academic ac- 
tivities of a college or university has long been recog- 
nized. Few boards of trustees would seriously con- 
sider infringing on the faculty's authority over what 
goes on in the classroom. As for the college or 
university president, he almost always would agree 
with McGeorge Bundy, president of the Ford Foun- 
dation, that he is, "on academic matters, the agent 
and not the master of the faculty." 

A joint statement by three major organizations 
representing trustees, presidents, and professors has 
spelled out the faculty's role in governing a college 
or university. It says, in part: 

"The faculty has primary responsibility for such 
fundamental areas as curriculum, subject matter 
and methods of instruction, research, faculty status, 
and those aspects of student life which relate to the 
educational process. 

"On these matters, the power of review or final 
decision lodged in the governing board or delegated 
by it to the president should be exercised adversely 
only in exceptional circumstances. . . . 

"The faculty sets the requirements for the degrees 
offered in course, determines when the requirements 
have been met, and authorizes the president and 
board to grant the degrees thus achieved. 

"Faculty status and related matters are primarily 
a faculty responsibility. This area includes appoint- 
ments, reappointments, decisions not to reappoint, 
promotions, the granting of tenure, and dismissal. 
. . . The governing board and president should, on 

f x. 

questions of faculty status, as in other matters where 
the faculty has primary responsibility, concur with 
the faculty judgment except in rare instances and 
for compelling reasons which should be stated in 

"The faculty should actively participate in the 
determination of policies and procedures governing 
salary increases. . . . 

"Agencies for faculty participation in the govern- 
ment of the college or university should be estab- 
^^ lished at each level where faculty responsibility is 
'^^ present. . . ." 

Few have quarreled with the underlying reason 
for such faculty autonomy: the protection of aca- 
demic freedom. But some thoughtful observers of the 
■J college and university scene think some way must be 
found to prevent an undesirable side effect: the 
perpetuation of comfortable ruts, in which individ- 
ual faculty members might prefer to preserve the 
status quo rather than approve changes that the 
welfare of their students, their institutions, and 
society might demand. 

The president of George Washington University, 
Lloyd H. Elliott, put it this way last fall: 

"Under the banner of academic freedom, [the 
individual professor's] authority for his own course 
has become an almost unchallenged right. He has 
been not only free to ignore suggestions for change, 
but licensed, it is assumed, to prevent any change 
he himself does not choose. 

"Even in departments where courses are sequen- 
tial, the individual professor chooses the degree to

which he will accommodate his 
course to others in the sequence. 
The question then becomes: What 
restructuring is possible or desirable 
witliin the context of the professor's 
academic freedom?" 

fected the faculty's role 
in governing the colleges 
and universities in recent 
years. Louis T. Benezet, president 
of the Claremont Graduate School 
and University Center, describes it 

"Socially, the greatest change that 
has taken place on the American campus is the pro- 
fessionalization of the faculty. . . . The pattern of 
faculty activity both inside and outside the institution 
has changed accordingly. 

"The original faculty corporation was the univer- 
sity. It is now quite unstable, composed of mobile 
professors whose employment depends on regional 
or national conditions in their field, rather than on 
an organic relationship to their institution and even 

less on the relationship to their administrative 
heads. . . . 

"With such powerful changes at work strengthen- 
ing the professor as a specialist, it has become more 
difficult to promote faculty responsibility for edu- 
cational policy." 

Said Columbia trustee William S. Paley: "It has 
been my own observation that faculties tend to as- 
sume the attitude that they are a detached ar- 
bitrating force between students on one hand and 
administrators on the other, with no immediate 
responsibility for the university as a whole." 

YET IN THEORY, at least, faculty members 
seem to favor the idea of taking a greater 
part in governing their colleges and 
universities. In the American Council on 
Education's survey of predictions for the 1970's, 
99 per cent of the faculty members who responded 
said such participation was "highly desirable" or 
"essential." Three out of four said it was "almost 
certain" or "very likely" to develop. (Eight out of 
ten administratoi^ agreed that greater faculty par- 
ticipation was desirable, although they were con- 
siderably less optimistic about its coming about.) 

In another survey by the American Council on 
Education, Archie R. Dykes — now chancellor of the 
University of Tennessee at Martin — interviewed 
106 faculty members at a large midwestern univer- 
sity to get their views on helping to run the in- 
stitution. He found "a pervasive ambivalence in 
faculty attitudes toward participation in decision- 

Faculty members "indicated the faculty should 
have a strong, active, and influential role in de- 
cisions," but "revealed a strong reticence to give the 
time such a r'ole would require," Mr. Dykes re- 
ported. "Asserting that faculty participation is es- 
sential, they placed participation at the bottom of 
the professional priority list and deprecated their 
colleagues who do participate." 

Kramer Rohfleisch, a history professor at San 
Diego State College, put it this way at a meeting of 
the American Association of State Colleges and 
Universities: "If we do shoulder this burden [of 
academic governance] to excess, just who will tend 
the academic store, do the teaching, and extend the 
range of huinan knowledge?" 

The report of a colloquium at Teachers College, 
New York, took a different view: "Future encoun- 
ters [on the campuses] may be even less likely of 

resolution than the present difficulties unless both 
faculty members and students soon gain widened 
perspectives on issues of university governance." 

Who's in charge? Today a new group 
has burst into the picture: the col- 
lege and university students them- 
The issues arousing students have been numerous. 
Last academic year, a nationwide survey by Educa- 
tional Testing Service found, the Number 1 cause 
of student unrest was the war in Vietnam; it caused 
protests at 34 per cent of the 859 four-year colleges 
and universities studied. The second most frequent 
cause of unrest was dormitory regulations. This 
year, many of the most violent campus demonstra- 
tions have centered on civil rights. 

In many instances the stated issues were the real 
causes of student protest. In others they provided 
excuses to radical students whose aims were less the 
correction of specific ills or the reform of their col- 
leges and universities than the destruction of the 
political and social system as a whole. It is impor- 
tant to differentiate the two, and a look at the 
dramatis personae can be instructive in doing so. 

AT the left — the "New Left," not to be con- 
/% fused with old-style liberalism — is Stu- 

/ ^ dents for a Democratic Society, whose 
.JL. _^L. leaders often use the issue of university 
reform to mobilize support from their fellow students 
and to "radicalize" them. The major concern of 
SDS is not with the colleges and universities per se, 
but with American society as a whole. 

"It is basically impossible to have an honest 
university in a dishonest society," said the chairman 
of SDS at Columbia, Mark Rudd, in what was a fairly 
representative statement of the sds attitude. Last 
year's turmoil at Columbia, in his view, was im- 
mensely valuable as a way of educating students 
and the public to the "corrupt and exploitative" 
nature of U.S. society. 

"It's as if you had reformed Heidelberg in 1938," 
an SDS member is likely to say, in explanation of his 
philosophy. "You would still have had Hitler's 
Germany outside the university walls." 

The SDS was founded in 1 962. Today it is a loosely 
organized group with some 35,000 members, on 
about 350 campuses. Nearly everyone who has 
studied the sos phenomenon agrees its members are 
highly idealistic and very bright. Their idealism has 

' 'Student power' has many meanings, as the young seek a role in college governance 


Attached to a college (intellectually, 

led them to a disappointment with the society 
around them, and they have concluded it is corrupt. 

Most SDS members disapprove of the Russian 
experience with socialism, but they seem to admire 
the Cuban brand. Recently, however, members re- 
turning from visits to Cuba have appeared disil- 
lusioned by repressive measures they have seen the 
government applying there. 

The meetings of sds — and, to a large extent, the 
activities of the national organization, generally — 
have an improvisational quality about them. This 
often carries over into the sds view of the future. 
"We can't explain what forin the society will take 
after the revolution," a member will say. "We'll 
just have to wait and see how it develops." 

In recent months the sds outlook has become in- 
creasingly bitter. Some observers, noting the escala- 
tion in militant rhetoric coming from sds head- 
quarters in Chicago, fear the radical movement soon 
may adopt a more openly aggressive strategy. 

Still, it is doubtful that sds, in its present state of 
organization, would be capable of any sustained, 
concerted assault on the institutions of society. The 
organization is diffuse, and its members have a 
strong antipathy toward authority. They dislike 
carrying out orders, whatever the source. 



I AR MORE INFLUENTIAL in the long run, most 
observers believe, will be the U.S. National 
Student Association. In the current spectrum 
of student activism on the campuses, leaders 
of the NSA consider their members "inoderates," not 
radicals. A former nsa president, Edward A. 
Schwartz, explains the difference: 
, "The moderate student says, 'We'll go on strike, 
rather than burn the buildings down.' " 

The NSA is the national organization of elected 
student governments on nearly 400 campuses. Its 
Washington office shows an increasing efficiency 
and militancy — a reflection, perhaps, of the fact that 
many college students take student government 
much more seriously, today, than in the past. 

The NSA talks of "student power" and works at it: 
more student participation in the decision-making 
at the country's colleges and universities. And it 
wants changes in the teaching process and the 
traditional curriculum. 

In pursuit of these goals, the nsa sends advisers 
around the country to help student governments 
with their battles. The advisers often urge the 
students to take their challenges to authority to the 


emotionally) and detached (physically), alumni can he a great and healthy force 

courts, and the nsa's central office maintains an 
up-to-date file of precedent cases and judicial 

A major aim of nsa this year is reform of the 
academic process. With a $315,000 grant from the 
Ford Foundation, the association has established a 
center for educational reform, which encourages 
students to set up their own classes as alternative 
models, demonstrating to the colleges and univer- 
sities the kinds of learning that students consider 

The Ford grant, say nsa officials, will be used to 
"generate quiet revolutions instead of ugly ones" 
on college campuses. The nsa today is an organiza- 
tion that wants to reform society from within, 
rather than destroy it and then try to rebuild. 

Also in the picture are organizations of militant 
Negro students, such as the Congress for the Unity 
of Black Students, whose founding sessions at Shaw 
University last spring drew 78 delegates from 37 
colleges and universities. The congress is intended 
as a campus successor to the Student Nonviolent 
Coordinating Committee. It will push for courses on 
the history, culture, art, literature, and music of 
Negroes. Its founders urged students to pursue their 
goals without interfering with the orderly operation 
of their colleges or jeopardizing their own academic 
activities. (Some other organizations of black students 
are considerably more militant.) 

And, as a "constructive alternative to the disrup- 
tive approach," an organization called Associated 
Student Governments of the U.S.A. claims a mem- 
bership of 150 student governments and proclaims 
that it has "no political intent or purpose," only 
"the sharing of ideas about student government." 

These are some of the principal national groups. 
In addition, many others exist as purely local or- 
ganizations, concerned with only one campus or 
specific issues. 

EXCEPT FOR THOSE whosc aim is outright dis- 
ruption for disruption's sake, many such 
. student reformers are gaining a respectful 
I hearing from college and university ad^ 
ministrators, faculty members, and trustees— even 
as the more radical militants are meeting greater 
resistance. And increasing numbers of institutions 
have devised, or are seeking, ways of making the 
students a part of the campus decision-making 

It isn't easy. "The problem of constructive student 

participation— participation that gets down to the 
'nitty-gritty'— is of course difficult," Dean C. Peter 
Magrath of the University of Nebraska's College of 
Arts and Sciences has written. "Students are birds 
of passage who usually lack the expertise and 
sophistication to function effectively on complex 
university affairs until their junior and senior years. 
Within a year or two they graduate, but the ad- 
ministration and faculty are left with the policies 
they helped devise. A student generation lasts for 
four years; colleges and universities are more 

Yale University's President Kingman Brewster, 
testifying before the National Commission on the 
Causes and Prevention of Violence, gave these four 
"prescriptions" for peaceful student involvement: 

► Free expression must be "absolutely guaran- 
teed, no matter how critical or demonstrative it 
may be." 

► Students must have an opportunity to take 
part in "the shaping and direction of the programs, 
activities, and regulations which affect them." 

► Channels of communication must be kept 
open. "The freedom of student expression must be 
matched by a willingness to listen seriously." 

► The student must be treated as an individual, 
with "considerable latitude to design his own 
program and way of life." 

With such guidelines, accompanied by positive 
action to give students a voice in the college and 
university affairs that concern them, many observers 
think a genuine solution to student unrest may be 
attainable. And many think the students' contribu- 
tion to college and university governance will be 
substantial, and that the nation's institutions of 
higher learning will be the better for it. 

"Personally," says Otis A. Singletary, vice-chan- 
cellor for academic affairs at the University of 
Texas, "my suspicion is that in university reform, 
the students are going to make a real impact on the 
improvement of undergraduate teaching." 

Says Morris B. Abram, president of Brandeis 
University: "Today's students are physically, emo- 
tionally, and educationally more mature than my 
generation at the same age. Moreover, they have 
become perceptive social critics of society. The re- 
formers among them far outnumber the disrupters. 
There is little reason to suppose that ... if given 
the opportunity, [they] will not infuse good judg- 
ment into decisions about the rules governing their 
lives in this community." 

Who's in Charge? 

Ideally, a Community 

As FAR as the academic community is concerned, 
■^^ Benjamin Franklin's remark about hanging to- 
gether or hanging separately has never been more 
apt. The desire for change is better expressed in 
common future-making than in disputing who is in 
and who is out— or how far. 

— John Caffrey, American Council on Education 

A college or university can he governed well only by a sense t>f its community 

Who's in charge? Trustees and ad- 
ministrators, faculty members and 
students. Any other answer — any 
authoritarian answer from one of 
the groups alone, any call from outside for more 
centralization of authority to restore "order" to 
the campuses — misses the point of the academic 
enterprise as it has developed in the United States. 

The concept of that enterprise echoes the European 
idea of a community of scholars — self-governing, 
self-determining — teachers and students sharing the 
goal of pursuing knowledge. But it adds an idea that 
from the outset was uniquely American: the belief 
that our colleges and universities must not be self- 
centered and ingrown, but must serve society. 

This idea accounts for putting the ultimate legal 
authority for our colleges and universities in the 
hands of the trustees or regents. They represent the 
view of the laiger, outside interest in the institu- 
tions: the interest of churches, of governments, of the 
people. And, as a part of the college or university's 
government, they represent the institution to the 
public: defending it against attack, explaining its 
case to legislatures, corporations, labor unions, 
church groups, and millions of individual citizens. 

Each group in the campus community has its own 
interests, for which it speaks. Each has its own 
authority to govern itself, which it exercises. Each 
has an interest in the institution as a whole, which 
it expresses. Each, ideally, recognizes the interests of 
the others, as well as the common cause. 

That last, difficult requirement, of course, is 
where the process encounters the greatest risk of 

"Almost any proposal for major innovation in the 
universities today runs head-on into the opposition 
of powerful vested interests," John W. Gardner has 
observed. "And the problem is compounded by the 
fact that all of us who have grown up in the aca- 
demic world are skilled in identifying our vested 
interests with the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, 
so that any attack on them is, by definition, 

In times of stress, the risk of a breakdown is 
especially great. Such times have enveloped us all, 
in recent years. The breakdowns have occurred, on 
some campuses — at times spectacularly. 

Whenever they happen, cries are heard for 
abolishing the system. Some demand that campus 
authority be gathered into the hands of a few, who 
would then tighten discipline and curb dissent. 

Others — at the other end of the spectrum — demand 
the destruction of the whole enterprise, without 
proposing any alternatives. 

If the colleges and universities survive these 
demands, it will be because reason again has taken 
hold. Men and women who would neither destroy 
the system nor prevent needed reforms in it are 
hard at work on nearly every campus in America, 
seeking ways to keep the concept of the academic 
community strong, innovative, and workable. 

The task is tough, demanding, and likely to con- 
tinue for years to come. "For many professors," 
said the president of Cornell University, James A. 
Perkins, at a convocation of alumni, "the time re- 
quired to regain a sense of campus community . . . 
demands painful choices." But wherever that sense 
has been lost or broken down, regaining it is 

The alternatives are unacceptable. "If this com- 
munity forgets itself and its common stake and 
destiny," John CafTrey has written, "there are 
powers outside that community who will be only 
too glad to step in and manage for us." Chancellor 
Samuel B. Gould, of the State University of New 
York, put it in these words to a committee of the 
state legislature: 

"This tradition of internal governance . . . must — 
at all cost — be preserved. Any attempt, however 
well-intentioned, to ignore trustee authority or to 
undermine the university's own patterns of opera- 
tion, will vitiate the spirit of the institution and, in 
time, kill the very thing it seeks to preserve." 

Who's in charge there? The jigsaw 
puzzle, put together on the preced- 
ing page, shows the participants: 
trustees, administrators, professors, 
students, ex-students. But a piece is missing. It must J 
be supplied, if the answer to our question is to be ' 
accurate and complete. 

It is the American people themselves. By direct 
and indirect means, on both public and private 
colleges and universities, they exert an influence 
that few of them suspect. 

The people wield their greatest power through 
governments. For the present year, through the 50 
states, they have appropriated more than $5-billion 
in tax funds for college and university operating 
expenses alone. This is more than three times the j 
$ 1 . 5-billion of only eight years ago. As an expression \ 
of the people's decision-making power in higher 

Simultaneously, much poiver is held by 'outsidej^s' umally unaware of tlieir role 

education, nothing could be more eloquent. 

Through the federal government, the public's 
power to chart the course of our colleges and uni- 
versities has been demonstrated even more dramat- 
ically. How the federal government has spent 
money thi-oughout U.S. higher education has 
changed the colleges and universities in a way that 
few could have visualized a quarter-century ago. 

Here is a hard look at what this influence has 
meant. It was written by Clark Kerr for the 
Brookings Institution's "Agenda for the Nation," 
presented to the Nixon administration: 

"Power is allocated with money," he wi-ote. 

"The day is largely past of the supremacy of the 
autocratic president, the all-powerful chairman of 
the board, the feared chairman of the state appro- 
priations committee, the financial patron saint, the 
all-wise foundation executive guiding higher educa- 
tion into new directions, the wealthy alumnus with 
his pet projects, the quiet but eff"ective representa- 
tives of the special interests. This shift of power can 
be seen and felt on almost every campus. Twenty 
years of federal impact has been the decisive in- 
fluence in bringing it about. 

"Decisions are being made in more places, and 

Who^s in Charge— V 

The Public 

more of these places are external to the campus." 
The process began with the land-grant movement 
of the nineteenth century, which enlisted higher 
education's resources in the industrial and agri- 
cultural growth of the nation. It reached explosive 
proportions in World War II, when the govern- 
ment went to the colleges and universities for 
desperately needed technology and research. After 
the war, spurred by the launching of Russia's 
Sputnik, federal support of activities on the campuses 
grew rapidly. 

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS cvcry year went 
to the campuses for research. Most of 
it was allocated to individual faculty 
members, and their power grew pro- 
portionately. So did their independence from the 
college or university that employed them. So did 
the importance of research in their lives. Clearly 
that was where the money and prestige lay; at 


Illustrated by Jerry Dadds 

many research-heavy universities, large numbers of 
faculty members found that their teaching duties 
somehow seemed less important to them. Thus the 
distribution of federal funds had substantially 
changed many an institution of higher education. 

Washington gained a role in college and uni- 
versity decision-making in other ways, as well. 
Spending money on new buildings may have had no 
place in an institution's planning, one year; other 
expenditures may have seemed more urgent. But 
when the federal government offered large sums 
of money for construction, on condition that the 
institution match them from its own pocket, what 
board or president could turn the offer down? 

Not that the influence from Washington was 
sinister; considering the vast sums involved, the 
federal programs of aid to higher education have 
been remarkably free of taint. But the federal power 
to influence the direction of colleges and uni- 
versities was strong and, for most, irresistible. 

Church-related institutions, for example, found 
themselves re-examining — and often changing — 
their long-held insistence on total separation of 
church and state. A few held out against taking 
federal funds, but with every passing year they 
found it more difficult to do so. Without accepting 
them, a college found it hard to compete. 


HE POWER of the public to influence the 
campuses will continue. The Carnegie 
Commission on Higher Education, in 
its important assessment issued in Decem- 

ber, said that by 1976 federal support for the 
nation's colleges and universities must grow to 
$13-billion a year. 

"What the American nation now needs from 
higher education," said the Carnegie Commission, 
"can be summed up in two words: quality and 

How far the colleges and universities will go in 
meeting these needs will depend not basically on 
those who govern the colleges internally, but on the 
public that, through the government, influences 
them from without. 

"The fundamental question is this," said the 
State University of New York's Chancellor Gould : 
"Do we believe deeply enough in the principle of 
an intellectually free and self-regulating university 
that we are willing to exercise the necessary caution 
which will permit the institution — with its faults — 
to survive and even flourish?" 

In answering that question, the alumni and 
alumnae have a crucial part to play. As former 
students, they know the importance of the higher 
educational process as few others do. They under- 
stand why it is, and must be, controversial; why 
it does, and must, generate frictions; why it is, 
and must, be free. And as members of the public, 
they can be higher education's most informed and 
persuasive spokesmen. 

Who's in charge here? The answer is at once 
simple and infinitely complex. 

The trustees are. The faculty is. The students are. 
The president is. You are.

Harris A. Jones, one of the "Nine 
of 99" and the only living member of 
the class, continues to serve his fel- 
low man through his work with crip- 
pled children in Appalachia. A resi- 
dent of Elkins, West Virginia, Mr. 
Jones has made it possible for more 
than 150 crippled boys and girls to re- 
ceive treatment in hospitals in Phila- 
delphia, Pennsylvania, and Lexington, 
Kentucky. His fellow Shriners work 
with him in this work of compassion 
and concern. 

Mrs. Paul J. Woodward (Lillian 
White, Whitworth, '05), continues to

ganized the church's first choir and 
served in positions of cultural leader- 
ship in the community. Mrs. Wood- 
ward's professional beginning in the 
field of music came in 1907 when she 
received the Bachelor of Music de- 
gree from Whitworth College. 


Two Millsaps alumni were honored 
in December by the Mississippi Con- 
ferences of the United Methodist 
Church. The Reverend Warren N. 
Ware, '22, of Midland, Michigan, and

The Reverend Horace L. ViUee, '23, 
and Margaret Ford Tyler Villee, Gre- 
nada, '29, began their 21st year in Co- 
lumbus on February 1. He has been 

pastor of the First Presbyterian 
Church there since that date in 1949, 
and is a former moderator of the 
Synod of Mississippi 1966-67. His pre- 
vious pastorates were Winona, Miss., 
Clarksdale, Miss., and Camden, Ar- 
kansas. A 1926 graduate of Union The- 
ological Seminary in Virginia, he was 
given the honorary Doctor of Divinity 
degree by Arkansas College in 1948. 

Mrs. O. S. Cantwell (Betty Eason, 
Grenada '24), who has represented 
Mississippi in national educational 
circles, will retire in June after 38 
years in public school administra- 
tion. She is serving as coordinator of 
elementary schools in Clarksdale, 
Miss. Mrs. Cantwell was president of 
the Grenada College Class of 1924. 

Dr. John C. Simms, '27, is serving 
his thirty-seventh year as chairman of

Haiiberg MenioridI Garden 

He Turned Millsaps Campus 
Into A Thing Of Beauty 

"WJiere floicers degenerate 
man cannot live." 


A Memorial Garden is being prepared adjacent to 
the Sullivan-Harrell Science Hall in memory of Fred 
Hauberg who for eight years transformed the college 
grounds into a thing of beauty. Mr. Hauberg died Jan- 
uary 9 at University Hospital, Jackson, at the age of 88 

Bryant Home, past president of the Men's Garden 
Clubs of America, who has taken over the supervision of 
the campus grounds, was a long-standing friend of Mr. 
Hauberg. He has written his memories of the well- 
known horticulturist who came from his native Denmark 
to make his home in Jackson in 1914. 

Home remembers Fred Hauberg as a man who 
had a loving hand in helping to make Jackson more 
beautiful. He devoted over 70 years of his enriched and 
useful life to the love and care of gardening. At the 
age of 14. this grand, young-in-heart man began his 
study and apprenticeship in horticulture in his native 
land of Denmark, furthering his studies in Germany. 
After nine years of study and practical work, he was 
awarded his license as Doctor of Horticulture. 

Before coming to the United States at the turn of 
the century, Hauberg had a nursery in Copenhagen, 
and his wife, the former Miss Wilhelmenia Mortensen 
Sjeland, Denmark, shared his interest in the love of 
plants and flowers until her death in 1957. Their first 
home in America was near Brookhaven, Mississippi, 
where both their daughter (now Mrs. W. D. Calhoun) 
and son, Robert E. Hauberg, were born. 

Knew And Loved His Work 

After settling in Jackson 55 years ago, the family 
became affiliated with the Galloway Memorial Methodist 
Church and Hauberg seldom missed Sunday School and 
morning church services. One of his first major jobs 
at Jackson was the care of KENWOOD, the R. E. 
Kennington Gardens, which he maintained for many 
years. And many Jackson homes with gardens large or 
small, were nurtured under his guiding hands, where 
he showed his tender care of trees, shrubs and flowers. 
He was a man who knew and loved his life's work of 
beautification; and flowers seemed to bring forth their 
loveliest blossoms at the touch of his hands. 

He was always generous with his time and advice 
to the many who called upon him for suggestions in 
bringing new life to young trees and plants. 

For the last eight years, Hauberg supervised land- 

scaping and planting on the grounds of Millsaps College 
around both the old and new dormitories, resulting in a 
beautifully landscaped campus. 

Other forms of nature made life fascinating for 
Hauberg for he was a veteran traveler, having seen 
much of Europe, its famous gardens and castles and 
scenic beauty, as well as most of the states in America. 

He renewed his interest in horticulture while visiting 
his brothers and sisters in Denmark 10 years ago. Then, 
on one of his trips to the West Coast, he was especially 
enthusiastic in seeing the acres of flowers in all varie- 
ties in the fields located at Lompoc California, from 
where most of the seeds and flowers were shipped to 
him in years past. Also, his visit to the Danish settlement 
at Solvang, California, proved of great significance, since 
he was almost persuaded by other Danish families to 
go there instead of Mississippi, where his pastor from 
Denmark was locating. 

Rock Hound 

There was another great interest and hobby which 
occupied much of Hauberg's time. He was a "Rock 
Hound" of renown, and being a member of the Missis- 
sippi Gem and Mineral Society, participated in many 
field trips in Mississippi. He had on display in his collec- 
tion much of Mississippi petrified wood, agates, and 
other items of interest; also, a stone ax from the Stone 
Age in Denmark dating back 10 centuries. Being an 
avid reader and having a wide Imowledge of history 
and geography, as well as science, made him "easy to 
listen to." 

Through the years the growth of Jackson was watch- 
ed with keen interest by this dedicated gardener, es- 
pecially when the idea to KEEP JACKSON BEAUTIFUL 
was promoted. He enjoyed frequent drives through the 
City where he pointed with pride to the attractive lawns 
of churches, homes and parks with beautiful landscap- 
ing, flower gardens, shrubs and trees. The rose garden 
at Livingston Park is one he never missed. 

Measuring Time 

According to Millsaps President Benjamin B. Graves, 
members of the Millsaps College community could 
measure time by pre-Hauberg and post-Hauberg stand- 
ards. He was loved and respected — almost held in 
awe — by his friends on the campus. The devotion and 
singleness of purpose which he brought to his vocation 


resulted in the transformation of the 100-acre campus to 
a hill adorned with the beauty of growing things — and 
he has the gratitude of students, faculty and staff. 

One observer reported with admiration an incident 
involving Hauberg during a recent winter. A sudden 
snow and sleet storm had hit the city during a school 
holiday period. Offices were closed and everyone was 
joining the exodus, leaving an almost deserted campus. 

The Observer said he stared in amazement as he saw 
an erect figure making his way through the icy wind 
and over slick sidewalks — Fred Hauberg was returning 
to the campus to make certain that the beauty to which 
he had given his life would not be destroyed. Fred 
Hauberg has a special place in the hearts of those who 
are closest to Millsaps. 

God's Gardener 

The following poem, framed and presented to him 
on Father's Day last year is a dedication which ex- 
presses Hauberg's contribution toward "Helping Keep 
Jackson Beautiful": 

He is God's gardener; 
And well he tends His good earth 
Tenderly nurturing its harvest 
'Till it brings forth blossoms 
In a burst of glorious birth. 

He is God's gardener; 

Keeper of the green grass and stately trees 

Faithfully devoted to man's heritage 

That soothes the soul and the mind 

With its soft carpet and gentle breeze. 

He is God's gardener; 

And time falls gently on his brow 

For his is the toil of loving hands 

Bedecking Mother Nature in rich dress 

Of myriad flowers and the shading bough. 

He is God's gardener; 

This man of firm faith and sweet humility 

Who loves his God and all creation 

And speaks the language of the flowers 

With face etched in character and tranquility.

The college campus changes its face in many ways. Workers make preparations for the final pour of concrete 
on the first floor of the new three-story academic complex. The project is scheduled for completion by the fall semes- 
ter of 1970. 

Presidential Views 

by Dr. Bcnjatnin B. Graves 

From 1965 to 1909 is really a short period in one's 
own life or that of an institution. The foregoing time in- 
terval represents the length of my experience as presi- 
dent of Millsaps. However short such a period may seem, 
it is about equal to the average tenure for a college or 
university president in the United States today. Though 
such an analogy is both tragic and amusing, people now 
compare the college president's precarious position with 
that of a football coach. Since this particular issue of 
Mnjor Notes relates to both progress and problems at 
!\lillsaps during the decade of the 1960's, perhaps it is 
pertinent for me to reflect on some of the issues in higher 
education, and in particular on that of the presidency, 
with which 1 have become quite familar. 

On any given da.\- there are reported to be vacancies 
in the top leadership position in more than 300 higher 
educational institutions across the country. Among these 
voids arc represented some of the most prestigious in- 
stitutions in the land, yet all are experiencing difficulty 
in attracting able leadership. Only a few years ago, open- 
ings in the college or university presidency attracted 
seme of the nation's most talented leaders. What are the 
underlying conditions accounting for this peculiar revolt 
against leadership and is it related to that of general 
turmoil on the campus. As 1 view the scene, the two 
problems are surely related. For example, Dr. Douglas 
Knight recently resigned as president of Duke Universi- 
ty to accept a high position in private industry. He de- 
scribed his own and his family's experiences in the last 
two years at Duke as "savage". And he added, that 
he used that particular word after long and careful 

Is the campus turmoil an isolated societal problem? 
My own opinion is that it is not. Rather, it is a symptom 
of much larger problems in mankind which are not only 
national but international. The college campus is simply 
the most convenient and most vulnerable focal point 
among all of our institutional settings 

When one looks further, he finds similar emotional dis- 
turbances prevalent in other elements of society. Is it 
not a reflection of deep - seated problems in the family, 
in the church, in our elementary and secondary educa- 
tional system? Is it not also related to the almost un- 
believable changes in technology, to growth in numbers 
cf people, to cultural, and social and ethnic patterns, to 
the ecology in our environment, and indeed to the place 
of this earth in our total universe? 

Perhaps the most crucial single element in what 
seems to be world disorder is that of population explo- 
.sions, especially in the lesser developed countries. Are not 
the wars in the :\Iiddle East and Asia and the revolutions 
in .Africa and Latin America suggestive of over-crowded 
populations and refugees trying to find a piece of earth 
10 claim as their ov.n? 

College students, reaching a point in life where they 
are trying to cross the maturation barrier, see themselves 
caught in a web. though ver\' probably with consider- 
able exaggeration. Our current dilemma is compounded

by the speed of modern media which bring worldwide hap- 
penings into our living rooms in full color each evening, 
and by emotion - oriented movies, magazines, and news- 
papers. In Marshall McLuhan's term, "the media is the 
message". One wonders what the reaction around the 
world might have been had similar or even worse his- 
torical cases of poverty, war, epidemic and revolution 
been flashed on television screens. 

Lest one lose faith, however, we must look beneath 
the veneer. The vast majority of current college stu- 
dents are still dedicated and concerned young people 
seeking ways to create a more humane world. I hope 
that our Millsaps constituency will not lose its perspec- 
tive, despite the trauma of the moment. Let us all re- 
solve to preserve and enhance this college as a Beacon 
for the State, the Area, and the Nation. 

Significant Changes at Millsaps 

A number of significant events with an 
impoHant bearina on the future of the college 
have occurred since the last issue of MAJOR 

Two resohitions approved by delegates to 
the annual meetings of the Noiih Mississippi 
Conference and the Mississippi Conference of 
the United Methodist Church iviU appreciabhj 
alter the status quo. 

Action ivas taken to empower the Millsaps 
trustees to form a college-owned subsidiary cor- 
poration to develop real estate holdings on 40- 
acres of propeiiy in the north half of the campus 
now being used as a golf course. This will leave 
60 acres for future college use. The corporation 
will plan and finance construction of buildings 
for rent as business offices and apartments. 

Another resolution allows the Board of Trus- 
tees to enlarge itself with the addition of 14 
special trustees. 

A new chairman of the Board of Trustees 
took office May 30 replacing Nat S. Rogers tcho 
is now living in Houston. He is James Boyd 
Ca77}pbell, of Jackson, president of the Missis- 
sippi School Supply Co. Campbell has submitted 
an article for this issue on campus communica- 

The successful completion of the Ford 
Foundation Challenge Grant was achieved June 
30; another important milestone for Millsaps and 
the first time any venture of this scope has been 
achieved by a private college in Mississippi. 

The grant means the college receives $1.5 
million from Ford by raising $3.75 million through 
its own efforts in cash or other assets. 

But the drive for money continues. A new 
campaign to raise $2.1 million for a physical 
education center already has started. A story and 
pictures explaining this project appear as the 
center spread in tliis issue. 

The campus had an unusual visitor in the 
person of Ikar Zavrazhnov in May. It is a rare 
occurrence wlteii an attache of the Soviet Em- 
bassy in Washington, D. C, spends a feic days 
in Mississippi, but this was the achievement of 
the political science department. 

The students gave the attache quite a grill- 
ing during his stay on a wide variety of subjects, 
but the Russian never did express his true senti- 
ments about Mississippi. There ivas speculation 
he was surprised to find so much enlightenment 
and not as many walking white sheets as he ex- 

Anyway, in a letter after his trip he wrote, 
"I leant to express my deepest gratitude to 
President of Millsaps for friendly and cordial 
atmosphere I had in Mississippi. I believe that 
my visit to Jackson is of mutual benefit because 
the better way to understand other people or 
different way of life are personal contacts." 

Also included in this issue are the im- 
pressions of a Millsaps student who spent a 
semester in London, a report on a week in Mexi- 
co by another group from the college, and de- 
tails of the new Arts and Lecture Series. 

The Communication Gap on the College Campus 

hy James Boyd Campbell 
Chairman of the Millsaj)s College Board of Trustees 

Communications — dialogue — interchanging 
of ideas — these are the words in the minds of 
some that describe one of the gaps that exist 
between certain groups in today's world, and 
especially on the college and university campus. 
This theme is harped on over and over by some 
factions of our academic communities. 

How can this be; in this day of mass media, 
when an event happens in a re- 
mote part of the world, and the 
next hour the entire civilized 
world knows every detail of that 
event? With almost instant com- 
munications, it seems impossible 
that on a plot of ground called a 
college campus, a communica- 
tions gap could exist. The only 
possible explanation is that we 
are not hearing, or possibly, not 

As new as I am in this job 
as Chairman of the Board of 
Trustees, I certainly claim to be 
no expert on any phase of our 
college life — so, I offer no 
answers to the problem of the communications 
gap, or, for that matter, any other problem. In 
fact, I really don't feel qualified to comment 
further on it, even as to whether or not it exists. 

I do become frustrated, however, at the 
American Public's habit of equating an event or 
commentary about one institution of higher learn- 
ing with all other institutions of higher learning. 
This, surely, happens because of too much or 

too many communications in our society. 

What I am referring to is the fact that a great 
part of the American Public feels that on all col- 
lege campuses, the academic community is split 
into many bits and pieces, each pulling and tug- 
ging at the other — none working together. The 
faculty has nothing in common with the Board 
of Trustees; the administration, nothing in com- 
mon with the students — each 
group pushing for different and 
selfish aims. From the reports 
we read from some campuses, 
the description above seems to 
be accurate. 

While I do not think this con- 
dition exists on all campuses, I 
especially do not believe it exists 
on the Millsaps campus. And 
while each of the groups that 
make up our academic commun- 
ity may have some differences: 
of opinion on important issues^ 
for the most part the goals and, 
ambitions of each are the goals| 
and ambitions of all. i 

Now this state of relative unity on our cam-l 
pus did not just happen; it came about as a result! 
of a lot of hard work, concern, and cooperation 
by a lot of people. "I, personally, pledge to you! 
my own personal efforts, and I feel that I can 
speak for the entire Board of Trustees in pledging 
continued concern, and a redoubling of our effortsi 
to make the Millsaps Academic Community onel 
whole, instead of many fractions or parts." 

Millsaps In Mexico 

A Land of 
Pyramids, Politics 
Poverty, Planning 
And Pesos 

by Howard Bavender 

Associate Professor 
of Political Science 

Our hotel was on the Zocalo, the great square in the 
heart of Mexico City. We arrived shortly after midnight 
Easter morning just as the bells of the national cathe- 
dral were peeling the solemn joy of a midnight mass. 
The square is in a setting of majestic medievalism, the 
mark of the architecture of the Spanish viceroy alty. This 
memory of the past reaches back even further. Before 
the Spanish came this city was Tenotitlan, seat of the 
Ai:tec empire and they carried on their government not 
far from the Zocalo. The Aztecs built so well that the 
basic planning of downtown Mexico City has not changed 
substantially the layout of their streets. 

Ancient as Mexico is she moves with the dynamic 
pace of youth. Her people are young, her culture one of 
the oldest and richest in this hemisphere. 

Many impressions of our visit stand out. 

The pyramids of Teotihuacan, some 30 miles outside 
the city, were built by a mighty civilization that flour- 
ished, and then suddenly vanished several centuries be- 

Travel Note: Nine Millsaps students from political science 
classes in comparative government and international relations 
spent the week of April 5-12 in Mexico. Purpose of the trip 
was to study the political system of Mexico which they did with 
the assistance of the U.S. Embassy and the University of the 
Americas in Mexico City. Students making the trip were Peggy 
Jo Gillon, Paul Jordan, Derryl Peden of Jackson; Genie Hathorn, 
Oxford; Robert Mullins, Clinton; Melford Smith and Clyde Lea, 
Aberdeen; William Boerner, Harrington, 111.; and Richard Far- 
rell. The Bronx, New York. They were accompanied by Howard 
Bavender who not only wrote the article but also took the

fore the coming of the Aztecs. This complex of pyramids — 
the largest of which, the Pyramid of the Sun, rivals the 
Pyramid of Cheops — was the heart of a city of perhaps 
50.000 when it disappeared around 700 A. D. It was larger 
than any city then existing in Europe 

The influence of this city spread throughout Mexico 
and down into Central America. The pyramids are built 
on an east-west north-south axis but at an angle that 
deviates from west to the north at an angle of approxi- 
mately 17 degrees. This is so that on the mornings of the 
year when the sun is at its zenith it rises directly in line 
with the Pyramid of the Sun. Everywhere at Teotihuacan 
we see a civilization that knew order, discipline, and 
planning of an extraordinarily high degree of sophis-

soil. Millsaps students attended 
a performance of the world 
famous Ballet Folklorico here. 

Common Problems 

Mexico and Mississippi, we found, 
problems in common. 

share certain 

Each is in a stage of development that has it trying 
to catch up with the rest of the world. 

Each is trying to move from an agricultural economy 
to an industrial economy. 

Each, through education, is trying to change the 
social habits and thinking of large numbers of its people 
to make this transition possible. 

Each is dominated by one political party. 

Each has had difficulty making democracy work. 

Each is experiencing an accelerating and urgent 
sense of change. 

For Millsaps students, all of whom were making their 
first trip out of the United States, and in most cases, 
their first significant trip outside of Mississippi, the 
comparison of the two political systems was often sur- 
prising, sometimes startling, and for two or three, 
downright unbelievable. 

The "Universidad Independencia" is a dramatic hous- 
ing complex of some 16,000 people. A suburb of Mexico 
City it is a showplace of the nation. It is beyond anything 
in this country in its concept and scope. Housing, social 
services, communal facilities are all dealt with in this 
single, self - contained unit. The different economic class- 
es are mixed. Rents range from less than $10-a-month, 
to luxury five-room apartments for $64 a month. Com- 
parable facilities in Jackson in this latter category would 
run three to four times that rent. 

The unit is built with an eye to aesthetics. Streets 
are named after poets, artists, and heroes of Mexico's 
antiquity. It was here that Millsaps students saw their 
first demonstration of socialized medicine. We visited a 
small, completely modern hospital staffed by doctors on

salaries that would probably shock an American doctor 
yet the professional staff seemed as dedicated and effi- 
cient as their American counterparts. And on top of it 
all we saw drugs dispensed — free! 

Political Force 

The greatest single political force in Mexico is the 
Partido Revolucionario Institutional, known simply as 
PRI, which has governed the country since the Revolu- 
tion of 1910-17. The way PRI functions is a classic study 
of the charismatic party in a developing nation. The only 


Pyramid of the Moon, second largrest of the pyramids of Teotihuacan. 

Mexican party organized riglit down to the grass roots 
level it is extremely sensitive to a wide spectrum of in- 
terests within the country. 

It has demonstrated considerable success in integrat- 
ing what it calls the three great sectors of society. 
Agrarian, Labor, and Popular, into its planning and the 
main stream of the political system. PRI has even gone 
as far as discreetly financing the campaigning of some of 
its opposition as a means of encouraging Mexicans to 
more fully develop a democracy in its broadest meaning. 

Humanism is a word Mexicans often use in de- 
scribing- the governing principles of their political and 
economic system. As expressed by the revolution of 
1910 this humanism means social justice, equal 
justice in law, and the broadening of opportunities 
for the individual Mexican. 

For 36 years the Mexican economy has undergone 
steady, uninterrupted growth, considerably better in this 
respect than the United States. The success of the Mexi- 
can economic system has been possible through careful, 
even brilliant social and economic planning. The peso is 
considered one of the hard currencies of the world. Price 
rises are carefully watched and controlled. But even so 
Mexico's economic problems remain large and serious. 

Seventy percent of the population is under 35. Large 
numbers of young people flood the labor market every 
year. Two hundred thousand new jobs a year must be 

developed just to take care of the huge annual influx into 
the labor market. Unemployment and underemployment 
arc dangerously weak spots in the economy. Large num- 
bers of the young, not fully integrated into the m a i n- 
stream of the economy, can create explosive situations 
— something Americans have lately come to know quite 
a bit about. Mexico, then, is conscious of how far the sys- 
tem has to go to meet its goals. Its leaders are realistic 
and tough minded when it comes to seeing what has to 
be done and how it is to be done. 

Declaration of Faith 

A young woman with the United States Information 
Service remarked that most Americans still look on Mex- 
ico as the land of sombreros, tortillas and manana, an im- 
age that has little relation to what is happening. A mem- 
ber of the economic section of the American Embassy 
who had been briefing us on the problems of the Mexican 
economy remarked in concluding, "But these people will 
make it; they have in the past and they will in the future." 
His colleagues enthusiastically echoed his declaration of 

Mexico has made her own revolution. It is a contin- 
uous revolution that has been going on for more than 50 
years. She has had relatively little help from the outside 

Seeing all that we did in a week's time the Millsaps 
group returned knowing that we had seen a great people 
in action, a people who will indeed "make it"! 

A British Semester 

Fog, Smog, Accents, 
People, Bargains And 
Class Distinction 


by David Clark 
Senior Class President 

A Millsaps College student preparing for a semester 
or an entire year in England may anticipate what will be 
perhaps the most stimulating and rewarding months of 
his college years. 

He will encounter the national culture upon which 
his own is based, noting both the similarities and the 
striking differences between the two. He will undoubted- 
ly smile at many of the British customs, while recogniz- 
ing human qualities that are perhaps common to popu- 
lations throughout the world. He will find a social and 
political climate somewhat different from that of his 
homeland, and after comparing the good and bad points 
of each; may feel that either nation could profit by the 
adoption of certain of the others institutions or practices. 

If he enters Britain via London, the student may draw 
the hasty conclusion that this foreign nation is but a min- 
iature reproduction of his own. Certainly, London has 
much in common with such cities as New York, Chicago, 
Los Angeles, and other great American urban centers. 
The traffic is congested, fog and smog fill the air, and 
throngs of shoppers fight their way into the huge depart- 
ment stores. However, the student will soon begin to 
notice the differences which will interest and often delight 
him for the duration of his stay. For example, the fasci- 
nating varieties of British accents, the idioms of THEIR 
English language, the forever green grass in the parks 
and the dress of these foreign persons. (If male, the 
American student will be especially impressed by the 
average length of the young ladies' skirts.) 

The newcomer could probably spend the greater part 
of his sojourn touring only the spots of historical and cul- 
tural significance. London alone — with its impressive 
museums and galleries, its houses of Parhament, its 
beautiful abbeys, and its towering monuments — could 
command weeks, or even months, of the student's time. 

But the most fascinating aspect of this misty land 
are its human inhabitants. These British, though fre- 
quently exhibiting their traditional reserve, are actually 
as warm as the citizens of any nation. 

Class Distinction 

The people seem especially interested in America, 
their cultural and political offspring, much as any parent 
has a special interest in his own child. They rejoice at 
such triumphs as the successful Apollo fhghts. However, 
many do not understand how our country can afford these 
projects while fellow Americans are allowed to go to bed 
hungry and there is rioting in our streets. Still, there 
seems to exist no widespread anti - American feeling, 
though perhaps the British do not agree with some of our 
policies in Vietnam. 

One feature of the population that the American will 
observe is the marked class distinction: the worker even 
speaks with an accent different from that of the better 
educated man of the middle class. Missing is much 
of the rhetoric of equality that is commonplace in our 

Also, in the past the educational system tended to 
reinforce, rather than eliminate, the class differences, 
though this influence appears to be changing. 


David Clark, a twenty-one-year- 
old native of West Point, Missis- 
sippi, came to Millsaps in the fall 
of 1966 as a key scholar. 

A consistent Dean's List student 
and President of the Senior Class, 
he has been active in such campus 
activities as the Concert Choir, the 
Troubadours, and the tennis team. 

He is majoring in political science 
and plans to do post-graduate work 
in either law or political science. 

During the fall semester last 
year, Clark participated in the 
Drew University London Semester. 
In this article he describes what a 
Millsaps student might expect if he 
visits Great Britian. 

The student visitor will discover another difference 
between Britain and his home country. Though Great 
Britain is not as wealthy as the United States, the popu- 
lation of this tiny democracy appears better protected 
against the extreme deprivations of poverty. The govern- 
ment has established an extensive welfare scheme for 
those in need, and the National Health Service, a system 
of "social medicine," provides adequate medical care for 
all, regardless of one's financial position or social status. 

Though the opposition of the United States to such 
programs is quite vocal, the visiting Millsaps student may 
see much that he feels could be favorably transplanted in 
his own society. 

Low Prices 

While he is in England, the Millsaps student will cer- 
tainly want to do some shopping. He will find that his 
dollar goes a long way, especially since British economic 
difficulties forced the recent devaluation of the pound. 

Whether he looks in the large department stores of 
Oxford Street in London, or in the small shops found 
throughout the country, he will be amazed at the low 
prices. For example, he can purchase most woolen goods 
from one - half to one - third the American price, while 
the Millsaps coed may be especially interested in the fan- 
tastic bargains on English bone china. In any case, the 
American usually feels he must take home some of the 
treasures of these Isles, and the economically troubled 
British are only too happy to oblige. 

The British also offer other opportunities for the 
American to part with his precious dollar. One outstand- 
ing possibility is entertainment. Theatre buffs will be 
ecstatic when admitted to a performance by the world 
famous Royal Shakespeare Company for the price of ad- 
mission to a good American movie. Similar prices pre- 
vail in London for other excellent plays and musicals. 
Or, if the student desires to be in the company of his 
contemporaries exclusively, he may choose one of the 
many discotheques that are in full swing until the early 
hours. Or, if he can tolerate warm beer, he may spend 
his evenings in that fascinating British institution, the 

At the end of his stay in Britain our collegian will 
have fond memories of this little nation. He wiU prob- 
ably find himself wishing he could remain in the country 
long enough to really know the British people, an impos- 
sible task in one semester or even a year. Nevertheless, 
he will have profited by his experience and will long to 
return to this Atlantic Island country.

lenge is by no means the end of fund raising endeavors at 
Millsaps. In fact, it marks the beginning of a brand new 
$2.1 million campaign to provide the college with a Phy- 
sical Education Center. 

Physical education facilities are a significant aspect of 
campus planning because they require the largest commit- 
ment of land of any single college use. The playing fields 
necessary to serve an anticipated enrollment of 1500 will 
occupy approximately fifteen acres. 

Outdoor playing fields of regulation size and proper 
orientation must be provided for: football, with seating 
for 4,000, baseball, track and field, intramural soccer and 
Softball, twelve tennis courts, an archery range, golf and 

Indoor facilities must be provided for three basketball 
courts (one with spectator seating), volley ball, badminton, 
tennis, archery, fencing, gymnastics, handball, weights 
and personal combat, and a regulation size swimming pool 
opening directly to an exterior pool yard. In addition, com- 
plete supporting facilities must be provided, in the form 
of dressing and locker rooms, toilets and showers, equip- 
ment storage, training room, laundry, coach and faculty 
offices, classrooms, lobby, and caretaker's room. 

A major objective of the design is the location of the 
P. E. facilities in such a way that they will enhance, rather 
than hinder, future expansion of the campus academic 
buildings and the projwsed development of the north cam- 

The gymnasium must be located central to the overall 
complex for maximum accessibility of dressing rooms, 
administrative control, and minimum walking distances 
to playing fields. Adjacent parking for 150 cars is required. 

The various elements of the plan also must be designed 
for phased implementation, so that new construction may 
proceed without interfering with the regular teaching pro- 

But besides efficiency of layout, the proposal must 
create the atmosphere of vigorous stimulation appropriate 
to athletic events. Such character will make the new com- 
plex an excitingly attractive spot, encouraging enthusiastic 
student participation.

New Arts And 
Lecture Series 

Program Ranges 
From Jazz To 
Child Psychology 

Pianists Dave Brubeck and Jonathan Sweat, Shake- 
speare's "Romeo and Juliet," the popular hit musical 
"Oklahoma" and a lecture by the renowned psychologist- 
author Dr. Haim G. Ginott. 

These are the five major attractions which make up 
the second season of the Millsaps Arts and Lecture Series 
which opens Nov. 5 with "Oklahoma." 

The organizers considered their first series venture 
last year "a very successful undertaking." A member- 
ship goal of 1,000 was set and this figure was exceeded 
by almost 200, which included 101 sponsors and patrons. 

The forthcoming program is expected to be even bet- 
ter than the first when the line-up included "A Funny 
Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum," the New Or- 
leans Symphony and the Millsaps Singers, a play "Tiger 
at the Gates," and lectures by author Eudora Welty and 
Herb Kaplow, NBC White House correspondent. 

Leading Jazz Musician 

Jazz pianist Dave Brubeck disclaims the genius 
label, but the record speaks for itself. For more than two 
decades he has been one of the leading figures in contem- 
porary music, blending what he feels and what he has 
learned into something unique. 

Specialization has never been for Brubeck. While his 
piano style and ensemble "sound" have always been 
identifiable, they have never been confined to one form of 
expression. Not only has he freed jazz from the tyranny 
of two and four beats, but he has done so with a chamber 
octet, a trio, his famous quartet, with symphony orches- 
tras, and now with a chorus in his first oratorio "The 
Light in the Wilderness." 


This is Brubeck's first composition for voices after 
more than 200 instrumental works, some of which have 
become jazz standards. The oratorio is scored for a 
baritone soloist in the role of Christ, four - part mixed 
chorus, and organ. It may be accompanied by a jazz 
ensemble, symphony orchestra, or both. The organist and 
the jazz ensemble both have the opportunity of improvis- 
ing at various spots during a performance. 

This is the work Brubeck proposes to play in Jack- 


Author of Best Sellers 

Dr. Ginott is adjunct professor of psychology at 
the New York University Graduate Department of Psy- 
chology and serves as consultant to mental health centers 
in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

to Israel, serving as a United Nations expert on child 
psychotherapy and parent guidance. 

He is the author of a profession book, "Group Psycho- 
therapy with Children," and also has written two best

Dr. Ginott has a regular monthly column in McCall's 
r.aagazine and has written articles published in Reader's 
Digest. He has made regular television appearances on 
the Today Show and the Mike Douglas Show. 

Dr. Ginott says, "As parents, our need is to be need- 
ed. As teenagers, their need is not to need us. The con- 
flict is real; we experience it daily. This can be our finest 
hour. To let go when we want to hold on requires the ut- 
most generosity and love." 



Dr. Jonathan Sweat, who is presently professor of 
music at Millsaps, received the B. S. and M. S. degrees 
from the Juilliard School of Music in New York City. 
VVnile a graduate at the school he won a contract with

el tali st.

then has given many recitals throughout the Mid-South.

season and again this year.

550 nominees to win a Danforth Fellowship for Doctoral 
Study. The fellowship was renewed in 1964 and also in

A Report 

From The President 


Dr. Graves has been president of 

illsaps since February, 1965. 

He is a graduate of the University 
of Mississippi, has a Master's degree 
lin Business Administration from the 
Harvard Graduate School of Business 
Administration, and earned a Doctor 
3f Philosophy degree at Louisiana 
State University. 

He taught at LSU, the University of 
/irignia, and the University of Mis- 
iissippi before joining Millsaps. He 
ivas associated with Humble Oil Com- 
)any for a number of years. 

Of The College 

As Millsaps approaches her eightieth year from the 
founding date of 1890, it is appropriate, 1 think, to begin 
this annual report to our constituents and friends with a 
brief reflection on the historical record. History is espe- 
cially timely at this moment inasmuch as Ronald Good- 
bread, a Millsaps alumnus and now a Ph. D. candidate 
at the University of Georgia, has selected the history 
of Millsaps for his doctoral dissertation. 

Founded as a liberal arts college of the Methodist 
Church, Millsaps was chartered by the legislature of 
the State of Mississippi in 1890. The first session opened 
on September 29, 1892, with five faculty members and 
one hundred and forty-nine college and preparatory stu- 
dents. The intent of the founders was to establish an 
institution for young men which, in the words of the 
first President, William Belton Murrah, would offer the 
"widest range of investigation and research and the 
fullest recognition of truth wherever found." In much 
the same vein the first chairman of the Board of Trust- 
ees, Bishop Charles Betts Galloway, asserted that he 
"did not favor a narrow and provincial policy of de- 
manding scholarship with a denominational stamp." The 
College has long maintained this traditional policy of 
breadth and tolerance. Its student body represents fif- 
teen religious denominations, and its doors are open to 
persons of all races and creeds. 

For twenty-three years a law school was main- 
tained, but this was closed in 1918 and the Preparatory 
School discontinued in 1922. From 1893 to 1929 there was 
a limited graduate program. 

Student enrollment has grown from 149 in the first 
session to 979 at present. From the beginning a few 
women were admitted as day students, but only after 
two Methodist women's colleges were absorbed in the 
1930's did Millsaps become fully coeducational, with on- 
campus housing facilities provided for women. 

The specific topics discussed in this report general- 
ly follow the organizational structure of the college 
which consists of four broad areas: Student Affairs, 
Academic Affairs, Internal Administration, and Extern- 
al Affairs. It is in the spirit of openness, and a belief on 
our part that you want to know what is going on at what 
we earnestly hope is your college, that we make this re- 
port to you — our multiple constituents. 



Enrollment in September, 1969, was the highest ever 

at Millsaps although only a slight increase over last 
year's record. This enrollment of 979 students was par- 
ticularly encouraging as many privately supported col- 
leges and some state institutions reported decreases 
this semester. Millsaps also set a new record with its 
1969 Summer School enrollment. 

Our new freshman class has 286 students evenly di- 
vided between men and women whose average Ameri- 
can College Test score was 24.7 compared to the na- 
tional average of 20. The College has 502 male students 
and 477 females. Enrollment in the other classes is: 
sophomore, 227; juniors, 206; seniors, 186; and unclassi- 
fied, 74. 

Students represent 24 states, 72 of Mississippi's 82 
counties, and five foreign countries. Fifteen religious de- 
nominations also are represented. The breakdown of en- 
rollment figures shows the majority of our students 
come from Mississippi with a total of 795. Of these, 286 
are residents of Jackson. 

Tennessee leads the out-of-state representation with 
56 students, and Louisiana is second with 37. Foreign stu- 
dents come from England, Nicaragua, Lebanon, Ger- 
many and Greece. Some 410 members of the Student 
Body are Methodists, while 172 are Baptists, 103 Presby- 
terian, and 92 Episcopalian. 

Millsaps continues to seek students from both high 
schools and junior colleges who can benefit from an ed- 
cation here. Studies have suggested that an optimum 
size student body for this college would be approximate- 
ly 1,500 students. This is our goal, and we shall try to 
reach it by no later than 1975. Referrals and recom- 
mendations from constituents are always welcomed. 


The life of a college student is not compartmental- 
ized into blocks — learning, recreational, social, and so 
forth. It is a total process, with each activity interrelat- 
ing with others. Our student affairs area attempts to 
provide those services, opportunities and activities com- 
plementing the academic program in such a way as to 
enhance the process of growth and change which we 
call education. 

A student government serves both the institution 
and the students in many ways. Today's students are 
seriously concerned with the entire educational process. 
Student government thus provides a forum where these 
concerns can be expressed and issues discussed in a 
manner which has been, and hopefully will remain, 
one of honorable and orderly debate. Assistance in the 
resolution of problems and in the development of pro- 
grams is rendered to both the faculty and administra- 
tion. Students have served most effectively on college 
committees for several years, and they continue to con- 
tribute significantly to the work of these committees. 
Additionally, the student organization provides leader- 
ship through its own structure for camp entertainment, 
support of student publications, recreational, social and 
cultural activities. 

Medical needs of students are met through a dispen- 
sary. The building previously used as an infirmary has 
been rearranged and redecorated to provide a more 
pleasant facility. Dormitory rooms have been set aside 
in Ezelle and Sanders Halls for use of students who need 

bed care. Psychological consultation needed by some 
students is provided on a referral basis. A permanent 
and properly equipped infirmary remains high on our 
list of physical facility needs. 

Our residence halls are excellent. The staff of house- 
mothers underwent a change this year resulting from 
the retirement of long-time favorites Mrs. Helen Daniel 
and Mrs. Kate Robertson. Mrs. Charles Haffey, who 
was with us only one year, found it necessary to make 
a change. These important persons on our staff were 
replaced by Mrs. Kathryn Fleming, Mrs. Mary Fisack- 
erley and Mrs. King Landry. 


A broad variety of activities are available to stu- 
dents. The Millsaps Series offers convocations, lectures, 
music, drama and art. Additional opportunities for en- 
richment are offered by the Heritage Program and var- 
ious departments. An active intramural program in ath- 
letics involves the majority of our students, and inter- 
collegiate sports continue to represent an integral part 
of college life. Basketball Coach J. C. Anthony decided 
to leave the coaching profession, but we have acquired 
the services of Howard Corder as Dean of Men and 
Basketball Coach. 

Social activities provided by the student government 
are supplemented by those offered by various social or- 
ganizations. Active Interfraternity and Panhellenic 
Councils carry on effective rush programs and serve to 
coordinate activities of the Greek organizations. A re- 
ligious life office offers regular worship opportunities, 
serves denominational youth organizations, provides re- 
ligious counseling and encourages involvement in the 
overall religious life of the community. Jackson is known 
as a city of churches and virtually every religious de- 
nomination and variety of religious experience is availa- 
ble in this area. 


The small college provides a unique opportunity for 
its students to be identified as persons by both the fac- 
ulty and staff. Each student is assigned a faculty ad- 
viser and other faculty and administrative officers are 
available for conferences with him. Our goal is not to 
reinforce a student's dependence, but rather to encour- 
age self examination, provide information and assist 
in the exploration of alternatives which will enhance his 
chances of becoming a more mature person. Each stu- 
dent is encouraged to avail himself of these opportuni- 
ties, and most do. 

The placement service for graduates is active, and 
part-time work is available to many students. Counsel- 
ing in the area of financial need is readily available. Our 
financial aid program provides assistance through a 
combination of grants, loans and work-study programs 
to 49 percent of the student body. 

There are exceptions to this general feature of close 
student-faculty relationships, even in the small college. 
Reasons are several but they can be summed up as 
the "generation gap," a term with which parents, teach- 
ers and the general public are quite famiUar. Though 
such is not always the case, one can say that the ab- 
sence of a comfortable student-adult relationship is more 
often due to the reluctance on the part of the student 
rather than the adults in our college community. 

ri II iM»i I ■ 1 1 



Perhaps the most significant development in this 
area during the year was the request from Dr. Frank 
1\I. Laney, Jr., Dean of the College since 1962, to return 
to the History Department as a member of the full-time 
teaching faculty. This move was with great regret on 
the one hand, but with pride on the other. Dr. Laney is 
a great classroom teacher admired by both students 
and faculty. As an interim Dean, we were fortunate to 
secure the services of Dr. Harold S. Jacoby, an able 
and experienced Dean, formerly of the University of the 
Pacific. Dr. Jacoby was on our campus as a Visiting 
Professor during the 1968-69 academic year. He is doing 
an admirable job. We are now searching for a perma- 
nent replacement for the 1970-71 academic year. 


Our present Millsaps faculty numbers 64 full-time 
and 17 part-time instructors, constituting a ratio of 12.5 
students per faculty member. Of the full-time faculty, 
twenty-three hold the earned doctorate degree, as do four 
of the part-time faculty. At least five others are active 
candidates for the degree, several having only to com- 
plete their dissertation. 

Fifteen of the full-time faculty hold the rank of Pro- 
fessor, and t-.venty-four the rank of Associate Professor. 
Since occupancy of these higher ranks is generally de- 
pendent on both length of service and extensive grad- 
uate study, those figures indicate the presence of a high- 
ly qualified, stable faculty. 

With respect to salaries, Millsaps' 1968-69 salary 
schedule was rated "C" for Professors, Associate Pro- 
fessors, and Instructors, and "B" for Assistant Profes- 
sors, in the annual AAUP scale. This represents a con- 
tinuing improvement in the salary picture. Neverthe- 
less, in the ligh of recent events, much of this gain has 
been nullified by continuing inflation, and the College re- 
mains at a competitive disadvantage nationally with re- 
spect to recruiting and retaining faculty. Despite these 
barriers we have been quite successful in this respect in 
the course of this year. Of the seven persons who left 
the Millsaps faculty in 1969, two did so to begin work on 
advanced degrees, two for family reasons, and two were 
persons on one-year appointments. In only one instance 
v/as the individual who left a tenured member of the 
faculty. Moreover, the ten persons who joined the fac- 
ulty on a full-time basis this fall represent one of the 
finest and most promising groups to come in recent 
years. We shall continue to try to secure and retain a 
superior faculty but our efforts will become ever more 
difficult unless substantial and ongoing attention is given 
to the matter of compensation. 


No dramatic changes in the curricular program of 
the College have been made this year. Because we are 
presently engaged in the decennial self-study required 
by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, we 
have recognized that 1969-70 should be a year of intense 
evaluation of what we are doing rather than one de- 
voted to broad change. It is fully anticipated that from 
The self-study will come clues that will guide curricular 
change in the future. 

One project that has come into its own this year is 

the work in computer programming. With the aid of a 
National Science Foundation grant, Millsaps has affili- 
ated with the Southern Regional Education Board's 
"Computer Science Project," and we now have two com- 
puter terminals installed in SuUivan-Harrell Hall, link- 
ing the campus to an eastern computer center. 

The Heritage Program is now in its second year, 
benefiting from an extensive appraisal by a summer 
study group headed by Dr. Russell Levanway, chair- 
inan of the Psychology Department. Consideration is 
presently being given to increasing materially the size 
of the group permitted to register in the course next 

With a grant from the IBM Corporation, we are co- 
operating in a joint program in anthropology with an- 
other area college. Additionally, Millsaps has become a 
charter member of the Southern College University Un- 
ion, a consortium of ten of the South's outstanding lib- 
eral arts colleges and Vanderbilt University. We are 
hopeful that the latter arrangement will permit us to do 
together those things which might be impossible as in- 
dividual institutions. 

Stirrings of interest remain in the areas of 
curriculum initially dealt with by the 19G5 summer study 
group. Committees are presently active on such mat- 
ters as "Non-Western Studies" and a "Twentieth Cen- 
tury Issues" course, and from these deliberations may 
come useful recommendations for future change. Con- 
tinuing consideration is also being given to a basic 
change in the College calendar. 



With a recent grant from the federal government 
and in cooperation with two other area colleges, Mill- 
saps is now sharing the services of a Certified Public 
Accountant and a purchasing agent. The former is con- 
cerned with improving our internal business office pro- 
cedures and shifting more of the work to automatic data 
processing equipment. The latter is allowing us to cen- 
tralize our institutional purchasing in order to achieve 
better controls and to compete for lower prices. We 
have already begun to see significant results from these 
two programs. 


The nation's colleges, along with individuals and 
families, feel the pressures of the upward spiral of the 
cost of living. All of us face this unfortunate fact of 

The continual need to increase salaries in order to 
become more competitive when seeking top-flight fac- 
ulty members and administrative personnel, the rapidly 
increasing costs associated with operating and main- 
taining our physical plant plus the general economic 
inflation which has approached 10% in the service 
sector of which we are a part, have caused a situation 
where our operating income has not kept pace with the 
growth in operating expenses. This combination of fact- 
ors resulted in an operating deficit last year of nearly 
$245,000. The operating deficit is due in part to the de- 

crease in gifts for operations caused by the diversion 
of gifts from donors to the very successful Ford Foun- 
dation Matching Grant Program. However, we need now 
to renew our emphasis on gifts for current operations 
from such sources as Church Maintenance, the Annual 
Fund, gifts from businesses and from other friends of 
the College. We must also continue to strive for maxi- 
mum efficiency in all our internal operations. 


In addition to the renovation in recent years of the 
Sullivan-Harrell science hall and the Christian Center, 
we have reached the halfway marl< on construction of 
the Academic Complex. All indications suggest that this 
will be one of the finest educational facilities in the re- 
gion when it is completed next summer. This Complex, 
together with past renovations, the recently built dormi- 
tories, and with the proposed Physical Education Com- 
plex will give us a modern physical plant which should 
meet our needs for an enrollment increase of as much as 

Two particular internal matters with long range im- 
pact deserve special mention. The first is an enlarge- 
ment of our Board of Trustees to provide both breadth 
and depth to this crucial body. The following dis 
tinguished individuals have been added this year: Fred 
Adams, Jr., Jackson; Mrs. Lula (Vassar) Anderson, Gulf- 
port; G. Cauley Cortright, Rolling Fork; J. Oliver Em- 
merich, McComb; Robert L. Ezelle, Jr., Jackson; Alan 
R. Holmes, New York, New York; Morris Lewis, Jr., 
Indianola; Robert O. May, Greenville; The Reverend 
David A. Mcintosh, Meridian; William H. Mounger, 
Jackson; Nat S. Rogers, Houston, Texas; Tom B. Scott, 
Jr., Jackson; John M. Tatum, Hattiesburg; James Boyd 
Campbell, Jackson; and Hyman F. McCarty, Magee. 

A second major development was the granting of 
authority to the college to proceed with a long range 
project of developing up to 40 acres of our extremely 
valuable north campus property. The concept to be 
tested here is unique. It is our hope to build a complex 
of a high quality which will be compatible with the col- 
lege environment. In its first stage, the property would 
be income producing but over time would be converti- 
ble at a minimum cost to college use, when and if the 
need arises. The land would continue to be the property 
of the college. 



Ford Foundation Challenge Grant: There can be no 
question but that the Challenge Grant Program was a 
success. As of June 30, 1969 (the deadline for all match- 
ing gifts) we had collected $4,118,499.75 in matching 
funds. This means our goal of $3,750,000 was exceeded 
by $368,499.75. It must be pointed out, however, that 
over $800,000 in gifts for current operations were applied 
10 match the grant. This underscores a need to continue 
a strong effort to collect outstanding pledges so the 
total objectives of the program can be met. 

Physical Education Center Project: The College has 
now launched an effort to secure $2.5 million in capital 
funds for the proposed Physical Education Center. 
C'hauncey Godwin, prominent alumnus and Tupelo busi- 

nessman, heads an executive committee of eight per- 
sons who have agreed to spearhead this program. Cur- 
rently, the committee is compiling a list of prospective 
major gift donors. Trustees, Associates, and friends of 
the College have been asked to submit names of prospec- 
tive donors (individuals, foundations, and business firms) 
to the Development Department for inclusion in this list. 

Annual Giving: Gifts for operating purposes last year 
totalled $269,649.48 from all sources and for all pur- 
poses. Millsaps alumni contributed over $61,000 to the 
Alumni Fund. The United Methodist Church gave over 
$122,000 to the College through its annual maintenance 
fund commitment. Though the latter gift is substantial, 
it continues to represent a declining portion of our an- 
nual budget. 

Mr. Craig Castle, Jackson alumnus and business- 
man, is this year's Annual Fund Chairman. He and his 
committee have set a goal of $78,000 for the current 
year. The Development Department plans to make an 
organized and intensive effort to secure substantial 
gifts to current operations this year from both the Mill- 
saps Associates, Trustees, and other constituencies. 

Deferred Giving: Phil Converse, who had been our 
Director of Deferred Giving, resigned effective July 1, 
1969, to assume a similar position at the University of 
Tennessee at Knoxville. Mr. Converse's departure, 
though it represented a serious loss in one area of spe- 
cialty, presented an opportunity to alleviate a problem 
in another area which had been recognized for some 
time. This concerned our inability, due to limited staff, 
to prepare an adequate coverage of campus news, and 
feature and photographic stories for the various news 

The decision was made, therefore, to employ a full- 
time photographer and news writer rather than immedi- 
ately replace Mr. Converse. Results so far have been 
very encouraging. The foregoing move, however, placed 
a heavier burden on Barry Brindley who must handle 
|the deferred giving program personally, at least for the 
jremainder of the year. This intermediate decision, how- 
ever, should not be interpreted as a de-emphasis of the 
deferred giving program. 


With the addition of a full-time photographer to the 
staff, we nnay expect an increasing amount of news from 
ilhe college. Special efforts are being made to send stor- 
jies and photographs to newspapers serving the home 
jtowns of our students. Better coverage of student life 
3ventually should benefit both our recruiting and fund 
raising efforts. 

Since July 1, 1969, 194 different news stories have 
oeen prepared. 2,274 copies of these stories were dis- 
tributed to newspapers, radio and television stations. 
Juring September alone, 168 photographs were pre- 
pared and distributed. A continuous consulting and serv- 
ce relationship with the Gordon Marks Company has 
peen most productive. 


Future plans include upgrading and expanding Maj- 
r Notes, and completely revising the College Catalog. 
it the same time we shall attempt to reduce the total 
lumber of publications. 


Alumni Association: Last year the Alumni Associa- 
tion had a successful program under the very able lead- 
ership of H. V. Allen, Jr., of Jackson. This year's presi- 
dent, Foster Collins, also of Jackson, has begun the 
new year with a great deal of effort and enthusiasm. 

Homecoming and Alumni Day continue to be the 
major events of Alumni Association activity. These two 
activities require considerable planning and work on the 
part of the administrative staff as well as the alumni 

Formation of a 100 member Board of Directors and 
the eight sub-committees of that board have added 
strength and dimension to this highly important body. 

Millsaps Club meetings are planned for the New 
England area and the Memphis area this fall. It is hoped 
that similar meetings can be staged in other key areas 
in the months ahead. 

The Alumni Association also has accepted the task 
of creating a Millsaps Parent's Association. When and 
if sufficient interest and leadership is demonstrated, 
the new parents organization will function as a separate 
but affiliate group among our constituencies. This should 
greatly improve communication and collective effort 
between the college and parents. 

Associates: Jesse Brent of Greenville, current chair- 
man of the Millsaps College Associates, has given very 
positive leadership to this group. The spring meeting 
was unique in that a number of student leaders were 
invited to present their thoughts on the great problem 
of campus unrest and descriptions of their responsibili- 
ties and duties within the Student Government. 

A very unusual program has been planned for the 
fall meeting scheduled for Thursday, November 20. Asso- 
ciates will either attend a coUege class or will partici- 
pate in discussions with students and faculty. At that 
time, officers and directors for 1970 also will be elected. 

The United Methodist Church: Specific projects or 
programs which have been suggested by various groups 
and which are currently under consideration are: ap- 
pointment of Millsaps representatives in local congrega- 
tions, the establishment of scholarships at Millsaps by 
church groups, a Ministers' Week at Millsaps, a Day at 
Millsaps for district representatives, a Methodist Stu- 
dent Day for High School students similar to High School 
Day, and a Millsaps Sunday in every church each year. 


As Millsaps enters this new year, I would judge the 
general state of the college to be excellent. Morale 
among faculty, students and the general administration 
remains high. The college continues its leading role, not 
only among state institutions, but regionally and even 
nationally. At the same time, we must face the stark 
reality of continuing divisiveness, change, and turmoil 
which prevails throughout the nation. The college campus 
is but a mirror for these crucial problems within our 
total society. Let us hope that our beacon shall always 
burn in the spirit of both our past tradition and our 
future hopes. Your continuing interest, cooperation, 
prayers and support will always be appreciated.

Team Averases 25.2 Points 



By Jimmy Gentry 



When the 1969 football season opened, Millsaps Coach Harper Davis was worried about his defense 
but confident in his offense's ability to score. 

Since that time, Davis' thinking has undergone several revisions. 

The Majors, 3-1-1 after the Oct. 11 Homecoming contest, occasionally have been brilliant on offense 
but the defense has been Millsaps' most consistent asset. 

The defensive line, anchored by a pair of freshmen and three returnees, has limited the opposition 
to but 123 yards a game on the ground. 

The rookies in the line, tackle Larry Denson (285) and middle guard Bruce Phillips (202), have 
both been a pleasant surprise for Davis. And the holdovers, tackle Bobby Spring (210) and ends Richie 
Newman (193) and Mike Coop (183), were expected to do a good job. 

Linebackers Pat Amos and Melford Smith, both seniors, have been dependable and monster man 
Mike Carter has done a fine job, according to Davis. Carter leads the Majors in pass interceptions with 

In the secondary, senior safety Mike Coker has done an excellent job, Davis said, and junior Ron- 
nie Grantham has been a dependable defensive halfback. 

Better Than Last Year 

The defense has intercepted 17 enemy passes and allowed but 217 yards total offense a game. They 
have permitted but 57 points all season, an average of 11.4 points a game. 

"I'd have to say this defense is probably better now than last year's was," Davis commented. 

On the other hand, the offense which averaged nearly 380 yards a game last year, has sputtered 
at times this season. 

But the backfield combination of tailback Brett Adams and fullback Robbie McLeod has lived up 
to all preseason expectations. 

Adams, the Majors' small college All-American candidate, has gained 457 yards in five games, an 
average of 91.4 per game. Before injuring an ankle in the season's fourth game, Adams has been well 
above the 100 yard per game mark and was ranked seventh in the nation in rushing statistics. 

And McLeod has made his contribution. The junior from Brandon leads the Purple and White in 
scoring with 36 points on six touchdowns and averaged 78.4 yards per game rushing. 

Davis' main problem has been developing a consistent passing attack to supplement the ground 
attack of Adams and McLeod. 

In the Southwestern contest, it appeared the problem might be solved. Junior quarterback Mike 
Taylor hit six of 13 pass attempts for 63 yards and added 41 more yards on the ground, a total offense 
of 104 yards. 

Taylor's Best Game 

"That Southwestern game has to be the best game Taylor has played since he came to school here 
three years ago," Davis said. "I just hope he can keep it up." 

Junior college transfer Clark Henderson has done a good job as backup quarterback, hitting 10 of 
23 pass attempts for 82 yards this season. 

The running of tailback Rowan Torrey, substituting for Adams in the game with the Lynx, was a 
pleasant development for Davis. Torrey picked up 97 yards in 13 carries and scored one touchdown. 

Davis cited the blocking of Newman at end, tackles Rusty Boshers and Luther Ott, guard Billy God- 
frey, center Jo Jo Logan, Carter and Coker as being instrumental in the offensive development. 

The Majors enjoyed their best night of the season on offense against Southwestern, picking up 294 
yards rushing and 117 passing, a total offense of 411 yards. 

Also playing a big part in the Majors' success has been the place kicking of Buddy Bartling. Sec- 
ond in team scoring with 24 points, Bartling has hit 15 of 17 PAT attempts and three of four field goal 

Millsaps is averaging 25.2 points a game, just one point below the 1968 Major who finished with a 
6-3 slate. 


Events of Note 


Mississippi College and Millsaps 
College have announced plans for an 
Inter-Alumni Annual Fund Competi- 
tion for the purpose of seeing which 
group can get the highest percentage 
of its known alumni to participate as 
donors to their respective Annual 

This will be the first such compe- 
tition between the two church-related 
colleges. It is hoped that the contest 
will stimulate giving by the alumni of 
the institutions. 

James Rankin of Jackson, president 
of the Mississippi College Alumni As- 
sociation, and Foster Collins of Jack- 
son, president of the Millsaps Alumni 
Association, have agreed to a set of 
rules by which the contest will be 
governed. Seeing that the rules will 
be adhered to will be Howard Woods 
of Clinton, chairman of the Mississip- 
pi College appeal, and Craig Castle of 
Jackson, chairman of the Millsaps 
fund appeal. 

Under the ground rules for the con- 
test, only gifts totaling $5 or more 
from a bona fide alumnus will be 

counted. An alumnus is defined as 
any person who has attended the re- 
spective college for one semester or 
more (Millsaps), or has earned a 
minimum of 30 semester hours of 
academic credit (Mississippi College). 
Both colleges have approximately 
8,500 known alumni. 

"Dollar goals or amounts con- 
tributed will not be included in the 
competition," said Rankin and Col- 
lins in announcing the contest. 

"We are interested in the percent- 
age of alumni giving with the hope 
that both colleges will receive a 
greater dollar income for their An- 
nual Fund," said the two alumni 

Woods and Castle, the two Alumni 
Fund chairmen, said the contest 
would run through June 30, 1970. At 
that time a list of donors who 
contributed $5 or more to the respec- 
tive funds will be turned over to an 
impartial judge for an audit to see 
which college is the winner. 

Mississippi College has already an- 
nounced plans for its Annual Fund 

Appeal, with Woods and his workers 
seeking to raise $100,000 for various 
projects at the college. 

Castle said the Millsaps goal is $78,- 
000 to match the 78th anniversary 
year of the college. 

Juniors and Seniors 
are invited to attend 


at Millsaps, 
Saturday, November 22.
