benefit of the College hereafter to be established by them, 
and contributions of money or negotiable securities of every 
kind in aid of the endowment of such College; and may confer 
degrees and give certificates of scholarship and make by-laws 
for the government of said College and its affairs, as well as for 
their government, and do and perform all other acts for the 
benefit of said institution and the promotion of its welfare 
that are not repugnant to the Constitution and Laws of this 
State or of the United States, subject, however, to the approval 
of the said two Conferences. 

Section 2. As soon as convenient after the passage of this 
Act, the persons named in the first section thereof shall meet 



14 MILLS APS COLLEGE 

in the City of Jackson, in this State and organize by acceptance 
of the charter and the election of Bishop Charles B. Galloway 
as their permanent President and of such other persons as 
they may determine to fill the offices of Vice President, Secretary 
and Treasurer, and shall prescribe the duties, powers and terms 
of office of all said officers, except as to the term of their said Pres- 
ident, who shall hold office during life or good behavior, or 
so long as he may be physically able to discharge his duties. 

They shall also select by lot from the lay and clerical 
Trustees from each of said Conferences, one-half who shall 
be Trustees of said College for three years and until their suc- 
cessors are elected, and the other half not so selected shall 
remain in office for the term of six years and until their suc- 
cessors are chosen as hereinafter mentioned. Upon the death,

and the persons so elected shall succeed to the office, place, 
jurisdiction and powers of the Trustees whose terms of office 
have expired. And the said Corporation and the College 
established by it shall be subject to the visitorial powers of said 
Conferences at all times, and the said College, its property and 
effects shall be the property of said Church under the special 
patronage of said Conferences. 

Section 4. That the said Trustees, when organized, as herein- 
before directed, shall be known by the corporate name set out 
in the first section of this Act, and all money, promissory notes, 
and evidences of debt heretofore collected under the direction 
of said Conferences for said College shall be turned over to and

sign the same to tlie corporation herein proNnded for, which shall 
thereafter be vested with the full, legal title thereto, and 
authorized to sue for and collect the same. 

The said corporation shall have the power to select any 
appropriate town, city, or other place in this State at which 
to establish said College, and to purchase grounds not to exceed

may think expedient and proper to subserve the purposes of 
their organization and the best interests of said institution,

di^ddual in this State for such grounds, and may accept dona- 
tions or grants of land for the site of said institution. 

Section 5. That the lands or grounds not to exceed one 
hundred acres used by the corporation as a site and campus 
for said College, and the buildings, dormitories and halls thereon 
erected, and the endowment fund contributed to said College

so long as the said College shall be kept open and be main- 
tained for the purposes contemplated by this Act and no longer. 

Section 6. That the cost of education shall as far as 
practicable be reduced by said corporation to the lowest point 
consistent \\ith the efficient operation of said College, and to 
this end reports shall be made to the said Conferences from 
year to year, and their ad\'ice in that behalf taken, and every 
reasonable effort shall be made to bring a collegiate education 
within the reach and ability of the poorer classes of the State. 

Section 7. That this Act take effect and be in force from 
and after its passage. 

The College has its origin in the general pohcy 
of the Methodist Church to maintain institutions under 
its own control for higher learning in the Arts and 
Sciences. 



16 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

At the annual session of the Mississippi Confer- 
ence in the City of Vicksburg on December 7, in the 
year 1888, the following resolutions were adopted 
by a large majority of the Conference: 

"Resolved, 1. That a College for males under the auspices 
and control of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, ought 
to be established at some central and accessible point in the 
State of Mississippi. 

"2. That a committee of three laymen and three preach- 
ers be appointed to confer with a like committee to be appointed 
by the North Mississippi Conference to formulate plans and 
to receive offers of donations of lands, buildings, or money 
for that purpose, and to report to the next session of this 
Conference." 

In accordance with this action the President of 
the Conference, Bishop R. K. Hargrove, appointed 
the following Committee: Rev. T. L. Mellen, Rev. 
W. C. Black, Rev. A. F. Watkins, Major R. W. Milisaps, 
Col. W. L. Nugent and Dr. Lather Sexton. 

On December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi 
Conference met in Starkville, Miss., Bishop C. B. 
Galloway presiding. The Rev. T. L. Mellen appeared 
and reported the action taken by the Mississippi 
Conference. The following transcript from the North 
Mississippi Conference Journal gives the response 
made by that body: 

"Resolved, 1. That a College for the education of boys 
and young men should be established in the State of Missis- 
sippi under the auspices of the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
South. 

"2. That a committee of three laymen and three minis- 
ters be appointed to confer with a like committee already ap- 
pointed by the Mississippi Conference." 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 17 

The following committee was accordingly ap- 
pointed: Rev. J. J. Wheat, Rev. S. M. Thames, Rev. 
T. J. Newell, Hon. G. D. Shands, Capt. D. L. Sweat- 
man and Mr. J. B. Streater. 

To the action of these Conferences we may trace 
the direct origin of the College. 

The joint commission constituted by the action 
summarized above met in the City of Jackson in Jan- 
uary, 1889. The Rev. Dr. J. J. Wheat was called 
to the chair. In stating the purpose of the meeting 
he made a stirring appeal in behalf of the proposition 
to establish a Methodist College in Mississippi for 
the education of young men. In response to this 
eani' t appeal Major R. W. Millsaps, a member of 
the om mission, proposed to give 850,000 to endow 
the .nstitution, provided the Methodists of Mississippi 
would give a sum equal to this amount for saia purpose. 
This proposition was enthusiastically approved, and 
after a plan of procedure was adopted, Bishop Charles 
B. Galloway was invited to conduct a campaign in 
the interest of the proposed endowment fund. 

Under the direction of this distinguished leader, 
the most gratifjdng progress was reported from time 
to time. The report submitted to the Conferences 
by the committee in December, 1889, refers to the 
movement in the following language: ' 

"The canvass, on account of the numerous necessitated 
absences of Bishop Galloway from the State, could not be 
continuously carried on, but even the partial canvass made, 
embracing not more than one-fifth of our territory, resulted 
in the most gratifying and encouraging success. The interest 



16 



18 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

awakened in the enterprise has extended beyond the limits of 
our own Church and is felt by every denomination of Christians, 
and by every section of the State. It is safe to say that no effort 
of Methodism has ever kindled such enthusiasm in our State 
or evoked such liberal offerings to the Lord. The fact has been 
demonstrated that the Church is profoundly convinced that the 
College is an absolute necessity." 

The report continues: 

"So high is the appreciation of the value of the proposed 
institution, that numerous toM^ns in the State have entered 
into earnest competition to secure the location of the College 
within the limits of their respective borders, offering from 
$10,000 to $36,000, and from twenty to eighty acres of land." 

In December, 1889, the Rev. A. F. Watkins, a 
member of the Mississippi Conference, was appointed 
a special agent to co-operate with Bishop Galloway 
in all matters pertaining to the endowment of the 
propose.. College. As the work of raising the sum 
designated in the original proposition progressed, and 
$25,000 had been collected, Major Millsaps, in the year 
1890, paid $25,000 into the College treasury. 

In December, 1892, the Rev. J. W. Chambers 
was appointed agent for the College and on December 
30, 1893, he reported that the full amount had been 
collected to meet the terms of Major Millsaps' prop- 
osition, and thereupon $25,000 were immediately paid 
by Major Millsaps to the Executive Committee, and 
the following resolution was adopted: 

"Resolved, That the Executive Committee return our 
most heartfelt thanks to Major R. W. Millsaps for his second 
gift of $25,000, this day turned over to us. For his princely 
liberality and unfaltering interest in the great enterprise so 



MILLS APS COLLEGE 19 

happily and successfully inaugurated, the Church and State 
owe him a large debt of gratitude." 

The Conferences having provided for a Board 
of Trustees, the joint commission dissolved in Jan- 
uary, 1890. This Board, to which was referred the 
matter of organizing the College, was composed of 
the following: 

Bishop Charles B. Galloway, President. 

Rev. J. J. Wheat, D. D. Rev. W. C. Black, D. D. 

Rev. S. M. Thames Rev. T. L. Mellen 

Rev. T. J. Newell Rev. A. F. Watkins 

Rev. C. G. Andrews, D. D. Rev. R. M. Standifer 

Hon. G. D. Shands Maj. R. W. Millsaps 

Capt. D. L. Sweatman Col. W. L. Nugent 

Mr. J. B. Streater Dr. Luther Sexton 

Mr. John Trice Hon. M. M. Evans 

After the Board organized under the charter, 
the question of locating the College was considered 
with great care. The Board met repeatedly to con- 
sider the offers made by different towns, and finally 
on May 20, 1891, wliile in session in Winona, Mis- 
sissippi, decided to locate the College in Jackson, 
the capital of the State. The citizens of Jaclson 
contributed S21,000 for grounds and buildings, and 
to this sum Major Millsaps added $15,000. Plans for 
a commodious main building were immediately pro- 
cured, grounds were purchased and in a compar- 
atively short time buildings were in process of erection. 

Wl'.en it became evident that everything would 
soon h in readiness for formally opening the College 



20 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

for the reception of students, the Board of Trustees, 
at a meeting held in Jackson, April 28, 1892, began 
the work of organizing a faculty of instruction. 

The Rev. W. B. Murrah was elected president. 
Many applications were considered for professorships, 
and Mr. N. A. Patillo was elected Professor of Math- 
ematics, and Mr. W. L. Weber was elected Professor 
of the English Language and Literature. 

At the time of his election, Professor Patillo was 
doing post graduate wrok in the Johns Hopkins 
University of Baltimore. Professor Weber was the 
acting Professor of English at the Southwestern 
University, Georgetown, Texas, when he was by this 
action called to Millsaps College. The department 
of Mental and Moral Philosophy was established, 
and President Murrah took charge of this department. 

At a subsequent meeting of the Board of Trustees 
held July 13, 1892, Mr. G. C. Swearingen was elected 
Professor of Latin and Greek, and the Rev. M. M. 
Black was elected Principal of the Preparatory De- 
partment. Both of these gentlemen had recently 
taken post graduate degrees at the Vanderbilt Uni- 
versity, Nashville, Tennessee. 

The necessary buildings having been erected, 
the first scholastic session began with appropriate 
ceremonies September 29, 1892. 

At the regular meeting of the Board of Trustees 
in June, 1893, Mr. A. M. Muckenfuss was elected 
Professor of Chemistry and Physics. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 21 

In June, 1894, the Rev. M. M. Black resigned 
the principalship of the Preparatory^ Department to 
enter on the work of the regular pastorate. In re- 
organizing the department it was made more dis- 
tinctively a training school with independent juris- 
diction, and Prof. R. S. Ricketts was elected Head 
Master, with Prof. E. L. Bailey as Assistant Master. 

The formal establishment of the Department of 
Modem Languages and History was effected by action 
of the Board of Trustees in Jime, 1897, and Prof. 
J. P. Hanner was elected to fill the chair thus created. 
Work, however, had been offered in these subjects 
prior to this time. 

In 1904 Dr. B. E. Young, who then had charge 
of the work in History and Modem Languages, re- 
signed his position to take charge of the work in 
Romance Languages in Vanderbilt University. The 
department was then divided. Mr. 0. H. Moore, 
a graduate of Harvard University being chosen 
Professor of Modern Languages, and Mr. J. E. 
Wahnsley taking charge of the work in History 
and Economics. 

The organization indicated by this review rep- 
resents the status of affairs existing at this time, 
though the personnel of the faculty has been changed 
in several departments. 

TJie remarkable facilities for conducting a Law 
School in Jackson led to the establishment in 1896 
of a Law Department. The Hon. Edward Mayes, 
ex-Chancellor of Mississippi State University, and 



22 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

for over fourteen years a professor of Law in that 
institution, was engaged to take the active control 
of this department. Dr. Mayes has associated with 
him as active Professors, Judge A. H. Whitfield, 
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of our State, 
and Judge Wm. R. Harper, a distinguished member 
of the Jackson Bar. 

In addition to the buildings first provided con- 
sisting of the main college building, the President's 
house and homes for the accommodation"|!^of stu- 
dents, the facilities of the institution were greatly 
enlarged during the sesssion 1895-96 by the gener- 
osity of Major Millsaps in the gift of Webster Science 
Hall, at a cost of $10,000. In 1901 Mr. Dan A. James, 
of Yazoo City, Miss., built an observatory for the 
College, in honor of the memory of his father, Mr. 
Peter James, and of his brother, Mr. Samuel James, 
and furnished it with a magnificent telescope, thus 
enabling us to offer the finest advantages in the 
study of Astronomy. 

The evolutionary process through which Millsaps 
College has passed during the first ten years of its 
history has developed an ever increasing demand 
for better dormitory and dining hall facihties. This 
need was supplied in 1902by the gift of Major Millsaps 
of the property formerly known as the Jackson College. 
The splendid brick structure thus secured together 
with other buildings admirably adapted to college 
uses enables the institution adequately to meet the 
demands made upon it. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 23 

With an endowment of near two himdred thousand 
dollars and buildings and grounds worth approx- 
imately one hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars 
more, it rests on a foundation which guarantees 
its perpetuity. It has the support of a great relig- 
ious denomination, yet it is not sectarian in its pohcy, 
but numbers among its patrons representatives of 
all the Clu-istian churches. 

One of the purposes the College keeps constantly 
in view is indicated by the following section of the 
charter: 

"The cost of education shall, as far as practicable, be 
reduced to the lowest point consistent with the efficient oper- 
ation of said College; and every reasonable effort, shall be made 
to bring collegiate education within the ability of the poorer 
classes of the State." 



24 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

The authorities of Millsaps College prefer that 
applicants for admission into the College should sub- 
mit themselves to the regular test of an entrance 
examination. But in case the Principals of Prepar- 
atory Schools desire to have their pupils admitted 
on trial without examination, arrangements looking 
to that end may be had as a result of correspondence 
with the College authorities. 

Special attention is called to the following state- 
ment of requirements for admission into the several 
departments: 
I. Mathematics — 

(1). Arithmetic. — The fundamental opera- 
tions, common and decimal fractions, denominate 
numbers, the metric system, percentage including 
interest and discount, proportion, square root and 
cube root. 

(2). Algebea. — Higher Algebra to quadratic 
equations, with special emphasis on factoring, 
the solution of simple and simultaneous equations, 
evolution, the theory of exponents, and radicals. 

(3). Geometry. — Two books of Plane Geometry 
with special attention to the Theory of Limits. 

The student who has made the best average grade 
in Freshman Mathematics during the session 
1906-7 was prepared for College in the Langsdale 
High School. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 25 

>II. History. — For entrance to the Freshman 
Class, something more is expected than the ele- 
mentary^ courses given in our primary schools. 
The apphcant will be examined on United States 
History, and on General Histor\' with special 
stress on the History of Greece and Rome. He 
should be famihar with books of the grade of 
those used in our Preparatory Department. 

\ ni. Latin and Greek. — Applicants for admis- 
sion into the Freslmian Class are examined on 
the work of the Prepartor\^ Department. This, 
as may be seen, comprises, in Latin, the reading 
of four books of Caesar's Galhc War, or an equiv- 
alent; in Greek, the satisfactory completion of 
the First Greek Book; and in both languages a 
careful study of the forms and of the leading 
principles of syntax. Apphcants are expected 
also to have some facihty in translating simple 
Latin and Greek at sight and in writing easy Eng- 
lish sentences into Latin and Greek prose. 
To be more specific, a course of study is outlined 
below for the guidance of the teachers of Prepara 
lory Latin and Greek throughout the State. 

FIRST YEAR. 

Latin — The first Latin Book (Collar and Daniell); Gradatim 
(Collar); Grammar (Allen and Greenough). 

SECOND YEAR. 
Latin — Caesar, Gallic War (Allen and Greenough); New Latin 

Composition (Daniell); History (Creighton's Primer). 
Greek — The First Greek Book (White); Anabasis (Good-nin 

and White); Grammar (Goodwin); History (Fyffe's Primer). 



26 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

To do satisfactorily the vvork here indicated, 
it will require five recitations a week of one hour 
each for two years in Latin; for one year in Greek. 

It is thought advisable to set before the students 
continuous passages for translation as soon as prac- 
ticable, and for this purpose selections from Collar's 
Gradatim and something of the Anabasis may be read 
toward the end of the first j^ear. 

It is recommended also, as a pre-requisite to 
the best results, that throughout the first year, in 
both Latin and Greek, written exercises be made 
an essential part of each day's work. During the 
the second year of the Latin course two exercies a 
week will be sufficient. 

Certainly as much History as is indicated above 
may be asked of the preparatory schools, but it is 
hoped that they will make a place also for works 
of a more discursive character, in which the stories 
of Greece and Rome will find more attractive, not 
to say romantic, treatment. 

IV. English. — The candidate for admission into 
the Freshman Class will be examined on the 
equivalent of the work done during the second year 
of the preparatory Department. He is expected 
to be thoroughly familiar with grammatical 
forms, and must be acquainted with the ele- 
mentary facts of practical rhetoric. He will be 
required to write a short composition — correct 
in spelling, punctuation, and grammar — on a 
subject chosen from the books assigned for 
reading. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 27 

It is desired that the preparatoty schools 
make use of the following Ust of books for 
reading and study, which has been adopted 
by the Association of Schools and Colleges 
of the Southern States: 

CAREFUL STUDY. 

Burke's Speech on Conciliation T\ith America, Macaulay's 
Essay on Addison, Macaulay's Essay on Johnson, Milton's 
Minor Poems, Shakespeare's Juh\is Caesar. 

GENERAL READING. 

Addison's The Sir Roger de Coverley Papers, Coleridge's 
The Ancient Mariner, Ehot's Silas Mamer, Ir\'ing's Life of 
Goldsmith, Lowell's Vision of Sir Launfal, Scott's Ivanhoe, 
Scott's Lady of the Lake, Shakespeare's Macbeth, Shakespeare's 
Merchant of Venice, Tennyson's Gareth and Lynette, Lancelot 
and Elaine, and the Passing of Arthur. 

Students who have not read the requisite number 
of the above mentioned books or of their equivalents 
will be assigned parallel reading throughout the session. 

THE BACHELOR'S DEGREE. 

The reader of the arrangement of courses will 
notice that three undergraduate degrees are offered 
by the Literary" Department of the College — B. A., 
B. S., Ph. B. It will also be seen from the following 
schedule that the preparation required for the dif- 
ferent courses is not the same: 

,B- A. Degree — The Bachelor of Arts course offers special 
instruction in the departments of Latin and 
Greek. This course presupposes one year of 
preparatory work in Greek, two in Latin. In 



28 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

order to be allowed to enter upon the B. A. 
Course, the applicant must stand an approved 
examination in English, Latin, Greek and Math- 
ematics. 

B. S. Degf ee — The Bachelor of Science course offers spec- 
ial work in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. 
Instead of Greek and partly of Latin, French 
and German are studied. In order to be allowed 
to enter upon the B. S. course, the applicant must 
stand an approved examination in English, Math- 
ematics, and Latin. 

^ Ph. B. Degree — The Bachelor of Philosophy course 
offers special work in English and History. In 
order to be allowed to enter upon Ph. B. course, 
the applicant must stand an approved examina- 
tion in English, Mathematics and History. 

>LL. B. Degree — No entrance examination is exacted 
of Law students who apply for the Junior Class. 
They are expected to haye a good elementary 
English education. Applicants for the Senior 
Class are examined in the Junior Course.

THE MASTER'S DEGREE 

Each school of collegiate instruction offers work 
looking toward the Master's Degree. Applicants for 
the M. A. or M. S. Degree will be required to elect 
three courses of study, not more than two of which 
may be in the same school or under the same pro- 
fessor. The principal subject chosen — known as the 
major course — will be expected to employ one-half 
the applicant's time; each of the minor courses, one- 
quarter of his time. It is expected that the applicant 
for a masters' degiee, after receiving a bachelor's 
degree, spend at least one year at Millsaps College 
engaged in graduate study. In most cases non-res- 
ident study, during two or more years will be accepted 
as the equivalent of one year's resident work. All 
examinations must be stood in Jackson. Attention 
is directed to the schedule of degrees following, and 
to the statement in connection with the account 
of work done in each department. The courses so 
announced are major courses; a minor course is ex- 
pected to require for its completion half the time 
required for the completion of a major course. 

M. A. Degree — To take the Master of Arts Degree 
the student must choose for his major course 
Latin, Greek, Historj', Philosophy or English. 
His minor course must be in schools in which 
he has already finished the full course for the 
bachelor's degree. 

M. S. Degree — ^To take the Master of Science Degree 
the student must choose his major and one 
minor course from the schools of Chemistry, 
Physics, Biology, Geology, Mathematics, or As- 
tronomy. His second minor must be in a school 
in which he has already finished the full course 
for the bachelor's degree.

III. THE SCHOOL OF CHEMISTRY AND 
PHYSICS. 

PROFESSOE SULLIVAN. 

The rooms given up to the study of these subjects 
are modem both in size and convenience, and occupy 
the whole lower floor of Webster Science Hall. The 
recitation room and physical laboratory open into a 
dark room for photography and optical experiments, 
and into a room specially isolated and designed to 
retain dehcate physical apparatus. The chemical lab- 
oratory opens conveniently into a small fuming room 
outside of the building so that vapors may not pass 
from one to the other, and is also connected with 
the store-room. Gas, water, experiment tables, hoods 
and pneumatic troughs are to be found in convenient 
places. There is a cellar for gas and electric gener- 
ators, and for assay and other furnaces. 

The course in this department consists of three 
years of chemistry and two of physics. One year 
of each study is required of candidates for all degrees, 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 45 

while B. S. students are required in addition to take 
a second year of chemistry. The subjects are taught 
by recitations and lectures and work which each 
student must perform in the laboratorj^ It is aimed 
that the laboratories be kept well equipped with 
apparatus necessary to the correct appreciation of 
the science. Each student has his own desk and 
apparatus and is closely supervised, so that he may 
not only gain a true idea of the substance under in- 
spection, but also cultivate a hand careful to the 
smallest detail, an eye observant of the slightest 
phenomenon, and habits of neatness, skill and econ- 
omy. Each student will be expected to keep accurate 
notes. 

CHEMISTRY. 

(a) Inorganic Chemistry. — This course is designed 
to give the student a thorough working knowl- 
edge of general chemist rj^ including a careful 
study of fundamental laws of chemistry, the 
occurrence, properties and preparation of the

ment afford minerals and fossils for class study. 

Several geological expeditions regularly made in 
the fall and spring to localities easily accessible from 



52 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Jackson, give the class a practical conception of tliis 
kind of surveying. The college is fortunate in being 
located in the midst of a region that is quite varied 
in geological character. Occaisonally the faculty 
grants a class a week's leave of absence on trips to 
more distant points. In the last month of the year 
Hilgard's Geology of Mississippi, and annual Reports

PROFESSOR WALMSLEY. 

All students applying for admission to any of 
the classes in History will be required to show a 
satisfactory knowledge of General History. The en- 
trance examination is made more rigid in Ancient 
History than in Modern, inasmuch as the emphasis 
in the college classes is thrown on Modern History. 

FRESHMAN. 

In the Freshman year an outline of the history 
of Europe is given, and the stress is laid on the period 
since the Barbarian Invasion, the period to which 
the modern nations trace their beginning. A parallel

The work in Economics, which is required of 
all Juniors, is given for about half the year to theoret- 
ical economics, and an attempt is made to set forth 
clearly the present condition of economic thought. 
This is followed by a more practical course, in which 
some phase of economic teaching is developed more 
at length. During the past year the nature and 
function of money was studied.

lems of our present social organization are studied 
in detail. 

Text-Books — Gidding's Elements of Sociology; Wright's Prac- 
tical Sociology; Henderson's Dependents, Defectives and 
Delinquents. 



VII. DEPARTMENT OF LATIN AND GREEK. 

PROFESSOR SWARTZ. 
MR. COLLINS. 

It is beheved that for the average under-graduate 
the study of Latin and Greek subserves in a marked 
degree the primary object of education. This primary 
object is to give one such masterj^ over one's own 
mind as to enable him to focus his thoughts with 
intentness and at will upon problems of intrinsic 
difficulty. The aim of this department will be so to 
shape the work as to endeavor to accomphsh this 
result. To this end great thoroughness and accuracy 
in all the courses will be insisted upon so that the 
solution of the linguistic problems which arise may 
be effected upon the basis of certain knowledge, and 
not upon that of conjecture. 

When the student has reached the point where the 
sahent facts of the structure of the language are 



58 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

well and thoroughly known to him, the time has come 
when he can approach the Classics with appreciation 
for their literary worth. The aim of Classic study 
now ceases to be intensive and expands into ex- 
tensive literary and historical study. Such an in- 
terpretation of the work is aimed at in the Junior 
class, but its full development is not effected before 
the Senior year. The character of the work of each 
year is clearly shown by the following outline with 
text-books used in each class. 

FRESHMAN 

The greater part of each session will be devoted 
to Cicero and Xenophon. These authors will serve 
as texts for an accurate and thorough review of forms 
and case relations. With the reading of these authors 
will be joined weekly written exercises in Prose Com- 
position. Near the end of the session Virgil and 
Homer will be taken up and the student prepared 
by lectures on meters and forms to read these authors 
intelligently and rapidly in the Sophomore year. 

The class meets four times a week. 

Text-Books. 

Latin — Cicero, Selected Orations (Allen and Greenough); Virgil 
(Allen and Greenough); Grammar (Allen and Greenough); 
The Latin Verb (Swartz); Dactylic Hexameter; Prose 
Composition. History and Geography of Rome. Gayley's 
Classic Myths. 

Greek — Xenophon, Anabasis (Goodwin's); Homer (Keep's); 
Study of Epic Forms; Meter; Prose Composition; History 
and Geography of Greece; Grammar; Gayley's Classic 
Myths. 



MI LISA PS COLLEGE 59 

SOPHOMORE. 

In this class the syntax of the work is greatly 
stressed and the effort is made to present to the 
student in full outline a more or less comprehensive 
\iew of the verb relation. 

This class meets three times a week. 

Text-Books. 

Latin — Virgil's Aeneid or 0\'id's Metamorphoses; Li\'y, Books 
I, XXI, XXII (W'estcott); Cicero's De Officiis, Book I 
(Rockwood); The Latin Verb (Swart z). Prose Com- 
position. History and Geography of Rome. 

Greek — Homer (Ihad or Odyssey); Lysias (Selected Orations, 
Bristol); Plato (The Apology or Crito, Dyer); Euripides 
(Medea or Alcestis, Earle); Meter of Tragedy; Literature 
(Jebb's); Prose Composition; Grammar. 

JUNIOR. 

It is hoped that in the Junior year matters of 
grammatical detail may be subordinated to studies of a 
hterarj' kind. The effort will be continually made to 
instill into the mind of the student an enthusiasm for 
Latin and Greek hterature; to show him that the Uter- 
ature of antiquity is not a dead impassive something, 
but that in it there pulsates a fiery glow and genial 
warmth unequalled in the literature of modem times. 
The exquisite lyrics of Horace and the stately flow of 
Demosthenes' matchless oratory; Euripides' modernity 
and Sophocles' profound tragedies wiU be expected to 
contribute their quota towards achieving this result. 
Three hours. 

Text-Books. 
Latin — Horace, Odes and Epodes (Bennett); Satires and Epistles 
(Kirkland); Pliny's Letters. LjTic Meters. Syntax. Prose 



60 MILLS APS COLLEGE

Aeschylus' Prometheus Vinctus. 

Syntax — Prose Composition. 
SENIOR. 

The aims of the Junior Class toward an apprecia- 
tion of the Classics as literature will see their fuller frui- 
tion in this class. Discussion of topics suggested by 
reading; essays written in Latin and Greek on assigned 
subjects; lectures by the professor on some subject 
of special interest — all these expedients will be 
expected to subserve the needs of the class in its 
struggle after thorough Classic scholarship. Two 
hours. 

Text-Books. 
Latin — History — Selections from Tacitus and Suetonius. 

Comedy — Plautus' Captivi; Terence, Andria. Roman 
Literature (Mackail); Meters of Comedy. A short course 
in Latin Inscriptions based upon Lindsay's Latin In- 
scriptions. 

Note. — In all these courses there will be parallel 
reading of Latin texts; also collateral reading in 
English. Sight reading will be practiced in all courses.

Birds; Tyler's Lyric Poets. 



MILLS A PS COLLEGE 61 

Note. — In all the courses there will be parallel 
reading of Greek texts; also collateral reading in 
EngUsh. Sight reading will be practiced in all courses. 

FOR GRADUATES. 

The course leading to the ^I. A. degree will be 
varied from year to year to suit the needs of the 
class. For the year 1907-1908, the following courses 
are suggested: 

Text-Books. 
Latin (A) — A Study of Roman Elegy, based upon Catullus, 

• Tibullus and Propertius. 
'•" • (B) — Satire, based upon a study of Lucilius, Horace, 
- Persius and Juvenal. 

In either course a thesis will be required. 

Greek (A) — The Drama with a critical and complete study 
of Sophocles. 

(B) — Epic Poetry. In this course the entire Ihad or 
Odyssey -^^11 be read. 

In either course a thesis will be required upon 
some assigned subject of research. 



COURSE IN BIBLE GREEK. 

As many of our students must needs go out into 
the active work of the ministrj^ without having the 
advantages of a Theological Seminary, it has been 
thought ad\dsable to offer a course in Bible Greek. 
The course as outlined on page 12 is offered as a 
substitute for the Junior Course in Classic Greek. 

Since a thorough appreciation of Hellenistic Greek 
from a linguistic standpoint cannot be had without 
an accurate knowledge of Classic Greek, students 



62 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

will be discouraged from taking this course who have 
not finished the Sophomore year in Classic Greek. 
Furthermore no student will be encouraged to take 
this course in Bible Greek who is not looking to the 
ministry as his hfe work, for this course is in no way 
intended as a substitute for supposed more difficult 
Greek. 

The method of instruction wiU be to find out the 
exact meaning of the passage in hand by a close 
scrutiny of the words, by a comparison of the words 
with their uses in other passages and by a discussion 
of their meaning in the classic period. Ancient 
customs and manners will be laid under requisi- 
tion to explain all kindred references in the text; 
in short, everything will be done to elucidate the 
passage under discussion and to bring out its 
meaning Unguistically. The course is not designed 
to be theological. 

Two courses will be offered: 

(a) The Gospels. The CathoHc Epistles and 
Revelation. 

(b) The Letters of Paul and Acts. 

Text-Books — Buttman's Grammar of New Testament Greek. 
Westcott and Hort's Text of the Greek Bible. Gardiner's 
Principles of Textual Criticism. Davis' The Story of the 
Nazarene. Conybeare and Howson's Life and Letters 
of Paul. Matthew's History of New Testament Times 
in Palestine. 

Note. — It is the purpose of the Professor each 
year to deliver to the students a lecture on some 
topic connected with the work of his department. 
During the session of 1905-06 he lectured to them 
on the great eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79 A. D., 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 63 

and the destruction of the two cities, Hercidaneiim 
and Pompeii. The session of 1906-07 the subject 
was: "Why are the Classics Shunned?" In 1907-08 
the topic wiU be "The Cultural Value of the Classics."

IX. THE SCHOOL OF MODERN LANGUAGES. 

PROFESSOR 0. H. MOORE. 

The regular course in both French and German 
is two years. A third year's work is offered in case 
there are enough apphcants. Students who took 
Junior French in 1906-07 are permitted to take Junior 
French B in 1907-08. 

In both languages, reading is begun almost at 
the start, the aim being to cover at least 300 pages 
of easy modem texts. Careful instruction will be 
given in pronunciation, wMle as much conversation 
will be introduced as time permits. The study of 
grammar and composition will be earned on tlii'ough- 
out the year. Occasionally there will be exercises 
in writing the languages from dictation, and m mem- 
orizing select passages. 

In the second year's work considerable reading 
is done. Not less than 600 duodecimo pages will 
be covered, with strict attention to pronunciation. 
Regular work is required in grammar and composi- 
tion. The student will be required to read at least 
one approved book as parallel work. References 
will be given and reports required on the Uterary 
history of the languages. 

The advanced work in both French and Ger- 
man will be arranged after the classes are organized. 
The texts named in the "OutUne of Departmental 
Courses" are subject to change.

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 67 

In the original foundation of Millsaps College, 
it was designed by its promoters to establish, in due 
season, and when the success of the Literary Depart- 
ment should be assured, a Department of Professional 
Education, embodying a Law and a Theological 
School. 

In the year 1886 the time came when, in the 
judgment of the trustees, it was possible and proper 
to establish the Law Department. Accordingly, they 
directed that at the beginning of the next session, 
the doors of tliis institution should be opened for the 
students of law, and Professor Edward Mayes was 
engaged to take the active control and instruction 
of that class. 

Our law school was not, even then, in any sense 
an experiment. Before that step was determined 
on, a respectable class was already secured for the 
first session. Dr. Mayes came to us with fourteen 
years of experience as a law professor in the State 
University, and with a reputation for abihty and 
skill as an instructor wliich was thorouglily estab- 
hshed. He had already secured the assistance of 
a number of most accomplished lawyers who prom- 
ised to deliver occasional lectures, thus adding greatly 
to the interest and variety of instruction offered. 

The total attendance during the first year was 
twenty-eight, of whom fifteen were classed as Seniors. 
At the expu'ation of the college year, fifteen students 
presented themselves to the Hon. H. C. Conn, Chan- 
cellor, presiding over the Chancery Court, for exam- 
ination for hcense to practice law in conformity 
with the requirements of the Annotated Code of 



68 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

1892. They were subjected to a rigid written exam- 
ination in open court, and their answers were, as 
law directs, forwarded by the Cliancellor to the Su- 
preme Judges. Every applicant passed this ordeal 
successfully atid received his license. We are now 
closing the eleventh annual session of our Law School, 
and no student has failed in any year to pass the 
examination and receive Ms license. We point with 
pride to the results. We now have one hundred 
and fifty graduates. 

The nature of the examination passed, being 
held by the Chancellor in liis official character, puts 
beyond question or cavil the genuineness of that 
result. We do not ask of our patrons or those who 
contemplate becoming our patrons to accept any 
statement of om own. The finding and the statement 
are those of the Judicial Department of the State; 
and every law graduate of Millsaps College stands 
before the world endorsed, not by the college alone, 
which is much, but also by tbe State itself, speaking 
through its Chancellors. Tliis is more than can be 
said for any other young lawyers in the State. None 
other have such a double approval as a part of their 
regular course. 

The location of the school at Jackson enables 
the managers to offer to the students extraordinary 
advantages, in addition to the institution itself. 
Here is located the strongest bar in the State, whose 
management of their cases in court, and whose ar- 
guments will furnish an invaluable series of object 
lessons and an unfailing fountain of instruction to 
the students. Here also are located courts of all 



MILLS A PS COLLEGE 69 

kinds known in the State, embracing not only the or- 
dinary Municipal and the Circuit and Chancery Courts, 
but also the United States Court and the Supreme 
Court. Thus the observant student may follow the 
history and course of cases in actual litigation from 
the lower tribunal to the liighest, and observe in their 
practical operation the nice distinction between the 
State and Federal jurisdiction and practice. Here 
also is located the extensive and valuable State Law 
Library, unequalled in the State, the privileges of 
wliich each student may enjoy without cost. Here, 
too, where the Legislature convenes every second year, 
the student has an opportunity, without absenting 
himself from his school, to witness the deliberations of 
that body and observe the passage of the laws wliich, 
in after life, he may be called upon to study and apply, 
thus he acquires a knowledge of the methods and 
practice of legislation. 

Apphcants for admission to the Junior class must 
be at least nineteen years of age ; those for admission to 
the Senior class must be at least twenty. Students 
may enter the Junior class without any preUminary 
examination, a good English elementary education 
being all that is required. Students may enter the 
Senior class upon satisfactory examination on the 
matter of the Junior course or its equivalent. No 
student will be graduated on less than five months of 
actual attendance in the school. 

Each student will be required to present satisfac- 
tory certificates of good moral character. 

Each student will be required to pay a tuition fee 
upon entrance, of fifty dollars, for the session's in- 



70 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

struction. No rebate of tliis fee will be made, be- 
cause a student maj^ desire to attend for a period less 
than a full session. 



COURSE OF STUDY. 

The full course of study will consist of two years, 
the Junior and Senior, each comprising forty weeks, 
five exercises per week. 

The instruction will consist mainly of daily ex- 
amination of the students on lessons assigned in stand- 
ard text-books. Formal written lectures will not be 
read. The law is too abstruse to be learned in that 
way. The professor will accompany the examination 
by running comments upon the text, illustrating and 
explaining it, and showing how the law as therein 
stood has been modified or reversed by recent adju- 
dications and legislation. 

The course will be carefully planned and con- 
ducted so as to meet the requirements of the Mississippi 
law in respect to the admission of applicants to prac- 
tice law, by examination before the Chancery Court, 
and will therefore embrace all the titles prescribed by 
Law for that examination, viz: (1) The Law of Real 
Property, (2) The Law of Personal Property, (3) The 
The Law of Pleading and Evidence, (4) The Commer- 
cial Law, (5) The Criminal Law, (6) Chancery and 
Chancery Pleadings, (7) The Statute Law of the State, 
(8) The Constitution of the State and the United States. 

The objects set for accomplishment by this school 
are two: 

First, to prepare young men for examination for 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 71 

license to practice law, in such manner as both to 
ground them thoroughly in elementary legal principles 
and also to prepare them for examination for license 
with assurance of success. Secondly, to equip them 
for actual practice by a higher range of legal scholar- 
ship than what is merely needed for a successful ex- 
amination for license. Therefore, our course of study 
is so arranged as fully to meet both of these ends. 

First — The curriculum of the Junior class will 
embrace each of the eight subjects on which the apph- 
cant for hcense is required bj' the Code to be examined. 
A careful, detailed and adequate course is followed, 
so that any student, even although he shall never have 
read any law before coming to us, if he will applj^ him- 
self with reasonable fidelity, can go before the Chan- 
cellor at the expiration of his Junior year, with a cer- 
tainty of success. The preparation of applicants for 
license in one year, will be in short, a specialty of this 
school. 

When a student shall have completed his Junior 
year, he will have open to him either one of two courses: 
He may stand his examination for license before the 
Chancellor, or he may stand his examination before 
the law professor simply for advancement to the Senior 
Class if he does not care to stand for license at that 
time. If he shall be examined before the Chancellor 
and pass, he will be admitted to the Senior class, of 
course, and without further examination, in case 
he shall desire to finish his course with us and take a 
degree of Bachelor of Laws. On the other hand, if 
he prefer to postpone his examination for license, he 



72 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

can be examined by the professor for advancement 
merely, and stand his test for license at the hands 
of the court at the end of the Senior year. 

As stated above the Senior year is designed to give 
to the student a broader and deeper culture than is 
needed only for examination for license. It is not 
strictly speaking a post-graduate course, since 
it must be taken before graduation, but it is a 
post -licentiate course, and the degree conferred at its 
conclusion represents that much legal accomplish- 
ment in excess of the learning needed for hcense to 
practice. 

The Senior Class is required to attend the recita- 
tions of the Junior Class by way of review, and to be 
prepared for daily questioning on the daily lessons of 
the Junior Class. 

Moot courts will be conducted under the direction 
of the professor in charge, in which the young men will 
be carefully instructed and drilled in the practical con- 
duct of cases.

ettjeral Infat^tnation. 



M 



ILLSAPS COLLEGE is named in honor of 
Major R. W. Millsaps, whose munificent gifts 
have made the existence of the institution 
possible. The College is the property of 
the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and was 
organized by the concurrent action of the Mississippi 
and North Mississippi Conferences. It is not sectarian, 
however, but numbers among its patrons members 
of all the Christian denominations. 

The College has an endowment of S165,000, and 
several partially endowed scholarships. The build- 
ings and the grounds are worth about $125,000. The 
first scholastic session began September 29, 1892, and 
the College has had remarkable prosperity from the be- 
ginning. The generous founder, Major Millsaps, by 
the gift of the Webster Science Hall, at a cost of SIO,- 
000, and the Jackson College property, at a cost of 
more than §30,000, has greatly enlarged our facilities. 

LOCATION. 

Jackson, the capital of the state, and the seat of the 
College is easily accessible by five lines of railway. 
Thirty passenger trains arrive and depart dailj\ The 
college is located just north of the city, on a command- 
ing elevation with perfect drainage, and in a beautiful 
campus of fifty or more acres. A healthier spot it 
would be difficult to find within the Umits of the State. 
The location secures all the advantages of the town 
and yet supphes all the healthful conditions and immu- 



74 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

nities of the country. Jackson is a small city of 31,000 
with handsome churches and public buildings, and is 
noted for the refinement and intelligence of its people. 
Its literary, social and religious advantages are super- 
ior. Bishop Galloway, President of the Board of 
Trustees, resides here, and his lectures and special ser- 
mons delivered from time to time add greatly to the in- 
terest and profit of each session. 

THE JAMES OBSERVATORY. 

Millsaps College is prepared to offer the very finest 
advantages in the study of astronomy. The late Mr. 
Dan A. James, of Yazoo City, Miss., built an observa- 
tory for the College in honor of the memory of his father, 
Mr. Peter James, and of his brother, Mr. Samuel James. 
He also furnished the observatory with a magnificent 
telescope. 

LIBRARY. 

The College authorities have realized from the 
first that much of the success of the institution depends 
on its Hbrary faciUties. It is a matter of great grati- 
fication that so early in its history the College has 
secured a large and valuable collection of books. Most 
of the well selected libraries of the late Dr. C. K. Mar- 
shall and Rev. W. G. Millsaps, besides many excellent 
volumes from Ex-Chancellor Edward Mayes, Dr. A. 
F. Watkins and others, have been generously contrib- 
uted. In addition to his other munificent gifts. Major 
R. W. Millsaps has made valuable contributions to the 
library. Soon after the founding of the College, Mrs. 
J. R. Bingham, of CarroUton, Mississippi, gave S1,000 



MILLS APS COLLEGE 75 

to endow the Martha A. Turner Library-. This money, 
Imown as the Turner Fund, has been separately in- 
vested, and the annual interest used in purchasing 
books. With the proceeds of the Library fee, paid 
by each student at his matriculation, the reading 
room is supplied with periodicals. The number of 
these has been much increased in the last two years, 
and all of the leading periodicals are now found in 
the Librarj^ 

Near the close of the session of 1905-6, Mr. An- 
drew Carnegie offered to give the College 815,000 for 
a hbrary building, if the College authorities would 
supply an endowment of equal amount. Major Mill- 
saps added to his many contributions to the College 
by gi\dng the full amomit of the endowment. The 
new building will be completed in time for the work 
of the coming session. The income from the endow- 
ment will allow additions each year to the stock of 
hooks and periodicals, and will offer library facilities 
that are not equalled in the State. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

Two large halls have been provided for the Lit- 
erary Societies organized for the purpose of improve- 
ment in debate, declamation, composition, and ac- 
quaintance with the methods of deliberative bodies. 
These societies are conducted by the students under 
constitutions and by-laws of their own framing. They 
are named, respectively, the Galloway and the Lamar 
Societies, and contribute greatly to the improvement 
of their members. 



76 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

BOARDING FACILITIES. 

We have established "Students' Homes," capable 
of accommodating a limited number of boarders, and 
each placed in charge of a Christian family. These 
homes, "Asbury Home" and "Williams Home," have 
each a capacity of from twenty-four to thirty young 
men. In addition we have several small cottages in 
which students can board themselves at reduced cost, 
or, if they prefer, lodge there and take their meals else- 
where. These cottages form a group of eight build- 
ings admirably situated on the eastern side of the 
campus. The rooms are sufficiently large to accom- 
modate two students each. The room rental per 
student in the cottages is $9.00 for the session and 
must be paid as follows: S5.00 at the beginning of the 
session and S4.00 the 1st of February. No student 
will be permitted to room at the cottages without spec- 
ial permission from the President. 

Memorial Cottages. — The friends of the late Rev. 
John A. Elhs, of the Mississippi Conference, and Rev. 
J. H. Brooks, of the North Mississippi Conference, have 
built two cottages for the accommodation of students. 
These homes are named, respectively, the John A. 
EUis Cottage, and the J. H. Brooks Cottage. 

FOUNDER'S HALL. 

Through the generosity of Major Millsaps we have 
recently come into possession of additional valuable 
property including a large dormitory building. This 
supplies the finest facilities for boarding accommoda- 
tions. The rooms are heated with steam, and are 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 77 

well ventilated — all having outside exposure. Rooms 
in Founders Hall will cost each student S18.00 per 
session of nine months, and must be paid as follows: 
810.00 on receiving key to room, and 88.00 the 1st of 
Febmarj^ Students in Founders Hall are expected 
to supply their own hghts and bed-room furniture. 
Lights cost verj' httle, and the room furniture can be 
easily disposed of when they leave College. The man- 
agement of the Hall is in charge of the Founder's Hall 
Club— T. L. Bailey, Treasurer. 

Table board in Founder's Hall can be had at 88.00 
per month. All of the advantages of the Hall, in- 
cluding lodging, fires in whiter and table board will 
cost onlj' 810.00 per month. 

Private families in the vicinitj^ of the College offer 
excellent board to students at moderate cost. 

SCHOLARSHIPS. 

Several scholarships have been estabhshed, the 
income from which will be used in aiding deserving 
young men in securing a collegiate education — The 
W. H. Tribbett Scholarship, the W. H. Watkins Schol- 
arship, the Peebles Scholarship, estabhshed by Mrs. N. 
McPherson, and the scholarship in Latin and Greek. 

The holder of the last named scholarship will be 
expected to give a portion of his time in assisting the 
head of the department. It is open to graduates of 
the Junior and Sophomore classes. 

The Oakley Memorial. — Under the direction of 
Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of CarroUton, Miss., a fund has 



78 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

been raised to establish a memorial in honor of the late 
Rev. J. S. Oakley, who was for many years an honored 
member of the North Mississippi Conference. The 
following Sunday Schools have contributed to this fund: 
Macon, Black Hawk, Carrollton, Rosedale, Starkville, 
Water Valley (Wood Street), Winona, Pickens, Durant. 

COLLEGE MAILS. 

All correspondence intended for students at the 
College should be addressed care Millsaps College. 
Mails are distributed to students on the campus, there- 
by avoiding the necessity of personal visits to the 
city postoffice. 

ELECTION OF CLASSES AND COURSES. 

Students are allowed some liberty of choice of 
classes and courses, either by themselves, or their 
friends, limited to the judgment of the Faculty and 
by the exigence of classification. A student is not 
allowed to withdraw from any class to which he has 
been assigned without the consent of the Faculty. 
A request to be allowed to drop a study must be made 
in writing. 

EXAMINATIONS. 

Written examinations will be held three times a 
year, and special examinations at other times as the 
several professors may elect. 

There is a tendency among students to withdraw 
just before, or in the midst of the June examinations. 
This results in a loss to the student, for examinations 
are more than a test of knowledge. They are an ed- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 79 

iicational instrument for teaching method, prompti- 
tude, self-rehance, for training in accuracy, and for 
developing in the student the power of concentration 
of attention and readiness in the shaping and arranging 
of thought. Examinations will not be given in ad- 
vance of the set time. No student who leaves College 
before the completion of his examination will be ad- 
mitted to the next higher class until he has submitted 
himself to the prescribed tests. 

During the session reports will be sent to the pa- 
rent or guardian of each student, in which will be an 
estimate of his class standing and deportment. 

DISCIPLINE. 

It will be the constant care of the administration 
to guard the moral conduct of students. The discip- 
line will be firm. Obedience to college regulations 
will be strictly required. Young men unwiUing to 
submit to reasonable, wholesome government are not 
desired and will not be retained. 

CERTIFICATES OF GOOD CHARACTER. 

Candidates for admission are required to give 
satisfactory evidence of good moral character, and if 
the candidate comes from another college, he must 
show that he was honorably discharged. 

PRIZES. 

Prizes are annually awarded for excellence in: 
1.- Oratory. The Carl J. v. Seutter medal and 
the Oscar Kearney Andrews medal. 

2. Declamation. The Millsaps medal. 



80 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

3. Essay. The Clark medal. 

4. Scholarship. The Oakley Memorial Prize. 

5. Essay. The Political Science Prize. 

6. Essay. The D. A. R. medal. 

CANDIDATES FOR ADMISSION. 

Applicants for admission must report to the 
President and to the Secretary as soon as possible after 
their arrival and secure board at some place approved 
by the College authorities. Except in cases where 
special permission is granted students to board in the 
cottages or in town, they wiU be required to board in 
Founder's Hall or in private families near the College. 
New students should be present on Tuesday that they 
may be examined and classed before the opening day, 
Wednesday, September 25. 

ENTRANCE EXAMINATIONS. 

Examinations for those applying for admission 
into Millsaps College will be held September 24-25. 
See calendar on page 2. See detailed statement as to 
entrance requirements, page 23. 

ATHLETICS. 

With the help of friends the students have 
equipped a commodious gymnasium. The annual 
spring Field Day gives an opportunity for public con- 
tests in running, jumping, putting the shot, etc. There 
is a student organization, the Millsaps College Athletic 
Association, which helps to keep up enthusiastic in- 
terest in healthful sports. A member of the faculty 
is President of tliis Association. 



MILLS APS COLLEGE 81 

RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION. 

Students will be required to be present at morn- 
ing worship in the College Cliapel. In this daily ser- 
vice the Faculty and students come together to hear 
the reading of the Sacred Scriptures and to engage in 
singing and prayer. 

THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

Organized shortly after the College was founded, 
the Yoimg Men's Cliristian Association has been 
dominated by the double pui'pose of leading men to 
accept Christ -and to form such associations as will 
guard them against the temptations of College life. 
It places the spiritual above the intellectual and 
emphasizes the importance of Cliristian activitj^ in 
education. 

In order to accomplish its worthy ideal, the 
Association holds meetings on Friday and Sunday 
evenings. The services are conducted usually by 
some one of the students, but occasionall}' by some 
members of the Faculty or minister from town. Also, 
in the spring, annual revival services lasting over 
a week result in renewing enthusiasm and in giving 
great stimulus to Association . work. 

The Association sends j^early a large delegation 
to the Southwestern Students Conference, at Ruston, 
La. Since the ten days of the Convention are assid- 
uously devoted to discussing Association work and 
problems, the delegates alwaj^s return enthusiastic 
and zealous for doing Christian service, thus they give 
new impetus and a lively interest in the King's business. 



82 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

The work of the Association is carried on by the 
students; each man has his part to do according to 
the plan of organization. The president, elected by 
its members, appoints chairmen of seven committees, 
each composed of three or more men. It is the 
duty of the advertising committee to advertise all 
meetings and secure good attendance. A small hand- 
book with campus information is distributed at the 
opening of the session. On the first Friday evening 
of the College year the Reception Committee provides 
entertainment for the new students and this committee 
also meets all new students as they arrive. At the 
reception all are made acquainted with one another. 
Each new student is urged by the membersliip Com- 
mittee to join the Association. The past session 
the membership was one hundred and seventeen. 
The Committee on Finance, whose chairman is the 
treasurer of the Association, collects the annual 
dues (SI. 50) and raises funds sufficient for meeting 
current expenses. The Devotional Conunittee pro- 
vides leaders for the meetings. 

But most important is the Bible Study Committee. 
The importance of studying the Bible is presented 
and every student is urged to engage in Systematic Bible 
work. Daily Bible study is felt to be of incalculable 
value in Christian living. The Missionary Committee 
arranges courses in biographies of Missionaries and 
in various mission fields. Also the students are trained 
in systematic giving. For several years the Asso- 
ciation has aided in the support of a Chinese student 
in the Anglo-Chinese College. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 83 

It is hoped that every student who matriculates 
in the College will become a member of the Association. 

PUBLIC LECTURES. 

With the view of promoting general culture among 
the students, and to furnish them pleasant and profi- 
table entertainment, occasional lectures are dehvered 
in the College Chapel by distinguished speakers.

THE PREPARATORY DEPARTMENT* 

HEAD MASTER RICKETTS 
ASSISTANT MASTER HUDDLESTON 

The main object of this department is to prepare 
students for the Freshman class of the College. The 
lack, at present, of good training schools in our States 
makes the need for such a department imperative. 
To students who find it necessary to leave home in 
order to fit themselves for college, we offer special ad- 
vantages. By coming here they will be quickly and 
thoroughly prepared for the regular college classes. 
Young men who are prepared for college in their Eng- 
lish studies, but who are behind in their Latin or Greek, 
will find in this department the facilities they need 
for bringing up their studies. 

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION. 

No student will be admitted into this department 
who is under 14 years of age. For entrance into the 
First Year preparatory class, the pupil must be able to 
read well, and must display a fair knowledge of the 
rudiments of English Grammar, Geography and Arith- 
metic. In other words, he must be familiar with the 
leading facts in Geography, should be prepared to 
solve intelhgently examples in Practical Arithmetic, 
and in English Grammar should know well the parts 
of speech and their modifications, and the construc- 
tion and analysis of simple sentences. 

i\pphcants for admission into the Second Year 
Class will be expected to have completed Geography, 
United States History, High School Arithmetic, Ele- 



86 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

mentary Algebra and English Grammar. In case 
Latin is studied, the candidate will be examined on 
Collar and Daniel's First Latin Book, or its equivalent. 
As the transition from disconnected sentences to Caesar 
would be too abrupt for most students, selections from 
Viri Romae are read in the class during last quarter of 
the first year, in connection with the First Latin Book. 
It is, therefore, recommended that students preparing 
to enter the Caesar class read at least fifty pages- in 
this or some equivalent text-book. 

Greek is begun in the second year of the Prepara- 
tory Course, White's First Grek Book being the text- 
book used. Pupils are thoroughly drilled on the 
forms of the language, and are also famiharized with 
the principles of syntax treated of in the latter part of 
the First Book. This language is so taught as to ren- 
der the student able by the end of the session to con- 
vert Enghsh sentences of moderate difficulty into 
Greek and to translate passages from Xenophon with 
facility. 

In the second term of the second year the study 
of practical rhetoric is begun. The student is at this 
point drilled in the correction of exercises in false syn- 
tax, and is taught to distinguish the principal figures 
of speech. These exercises are supplemented by com- 
positions on famihar subjects. 

The course in English is designed not only to teach 
the student to write and speak with grammatical cor- 
rectness, but also to inspire in him a love of good lit- 
erature. The reading and study of classics like Scott's 
Lady of the Lake and Ben Frankhn's iVutobiography 
can hardly fail of being beneficial in effect. 



MILLS APS COLLEGE 87 

Those who do not take a regular college course 
will be expected to pursue all the studies laid down with 
the exception of Latin and Greek. Physical Geogra- 
phy and Civil Government are not required of those 
taking Greek. In the work of the Department thor- 
oughness is at all times insisted upon. 

In the Second year a short cotu'se in Science is 
offered, so that the work of the Department covers all 
that is required for the first grade teacher's certificate 
in the pubhc schools of our State. 

Students in this department who wish to prepare 
themselves for ordinary business Ufe may have their 
studies directed to this end. The work so arranged 
will embrace the Preparatory English Course with the 
addition of Book-keping. Special attention will be 
given also to Penmanship, Practical Composition, and 
Commercial Ai'ithmetic. 

Those who piu*pose taking this course should cor- 
respond with the President or with the Headmaster 
of the Department.
