Andrews, members of the ]Mississippi Conference of said Church, and Marion M. Evans, Luther Sexton, WiUiam L. Nugent and Reuben W. MiUsaps, of Jackson, lay members of said Church ^-ithin the bounds of said Mississippi Conference, and Bishop Charles B. Galloway, be and they are hereby constituted a body corporate and pol- itic by and under the name and style of MiUsaps College, and by that name they and their successors may sue and be sued, plead and be impleaded, contract and be contracted with, and have a common seal and break the same at pleasure, and may accept donations of real and personal property for the 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, resignation or removal of said Galloway, or his permanent physical disability to discharge the duties of his office, the said Trustees may elect their President and prescribe his duties, powers, and term of- office. Section 3. That the said Trustees shall before the meeting of said Conferences next before the expiration of the term of office of any of their number notify the Secretary of said Con- ferences thereof, and the vacancies shall be filled by said Con- ferences in such way and at such time as they may determine, 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 receipted for by them in their said corporate name, and the MILLS APS COLLEGE 15 payee of all such notes and eWdences of debt shall endorse and as- 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 one himdred acres as a building site and campus therefor, and erect thereon such buildings, dormitories, and halls as they may think expedient and proper to subserve the purposes of their organization and the best interests of said institution, and they may in^■ite propositions from any city or town or in- 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 shall be exempt from all State, County and Municipal taxation 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.

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.

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. MILLSAPS COLLEGE 33 OUTLINE OF DEPARTMENTAL COURSES. ACADEMIC CLASSES.

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 common elements and their compounds, and a course of chemical calculations. The year's work will be closed with an introductory^ study of organic chemistr\\ This course is a prescribed study in the Sophomore Class for all degrees, and is a prerequisite to either of the other coiuses in Chemist ^v^ Lectures and recitations, three hours. (Mon- day, Wednesday and Friday.) Text-Book — Newell's Descriptive Chemistry.

Selected articles in geological reports. Biology — Sedgmck and Wilson's General Biology; Wilsons' Cell in Development and Inheritance; Haddon's Study of Man, Jordan's Bacteriology. V. THE SCHOOL OF HISTORY. 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 course in the fine arts is given. Written reports 54 MILLSAPS COLLEGE on assigned topics form an important part of the work of this year. Four horn's. Text-Books — Harding's Essentials of Mediaeval and Modern History; Seebolim's Era of Protestant Reformation; Mc- Carthy's Epoch of Reform; Goodyear's History of Art. JUNIOR. AppUcants for admission to the Junior class, who have not completed the work of the Freshman year, will be required to stand entrance examinations. One hour a week in this class is given to a review of European History for the last thousand years, and the other two hours devoted to a careful study of one of the three periods in American pohtical and constitutional history indicated below. A large amount of special parallel work is required in this class. Three hours. Text-Books — (a) Robinson's History of Western Europe.

Three hours. The work of the second course, which is elective for all degrees, is either a study of the elementary principles of International Law and of their appUca- tion in current questions of world politics, or an intensive study of the politics of Europe from the time of the French Revolution to the present. Two hours. Text-Books (A) — Bryce's Araerican Commonwealth; Moran's English Government; Wilson's State. Text-Books (B) — I. Davis' Elements of International Law; Reinsch's Colonial Government; Reinsch's Colonial Ad- ministration; Foster's Practice of Diplomacy; Class Lectures. II.

The Ralph Humphreys Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution offers a medal each year to the Junior class. This is given to the member of the class who prepares the best paper on some subject connected with the American Revolution. The subject for 1907-08 will be, "The American Revolu- tion the Work of a Minority." In the Senior Class a set of books is given by the head of the department for the best paper on some subject in Pohtical Science. This paper in 1907-08 will be written on "The Theoretical and the Actual Power of the Senate." 56 MILLSAPS COLLEGE COURSES LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE. Graduate work, both as a major and as a minor subject is offered in History. The major course is a study of the moral forces in the Middle Ages. The following books are required in addition to such parallel as may be assigned: Duruy's Middle Ages; Bryce's Holy Roman Empire; Fisher's History of the Reformation; Parts of May's History of Democracy in Europe and of Draper's Intellectual Develop- ment of Europe; Lecky's History of European Morals; Buckle's History of Civilization in England; Guizot's History of Civ- lization. The minor course is devoted to a study of Eng- land in the Eighteenth Century. Selected Chapters of Lecky's England in the Eighteenth Century; Ashton's Social Life in time of Queen Anne; Biog- raphies of Eighteenth Century statesmen. VI. THE SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS AND SOCIOLOGY. PROFESSOR WALMSLEY. 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. MILLSAPS COLLEGE 57 Text-Books — Bullock's Introduction to the Study of Economics Coman's Industrial History of the United States; Scott's Money and Banking; Dewsnup's Railway Organization and Working. In the Senior year a course is given in Sociology, in which, after a theoretical course in the study of Society as a scientific phenomenon, some of the prob- 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 Composition. Literature (Wilkins). The Private Life of the Romans (Preston and Dodge). Greek — Attic Orators — History of their times. Texts — Tarbell's Pliihppics of Demosthenes, Jebb'« Attic Orators; Tyler's Olynthiacs of Demosthenes. The Drama — Its History and Development. Sophocles' Oedipus Rex or Antigone. 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. Text-Books. Greek — History — Selections from Thucydides and Herodotus. Texts — Morris Thucydides I; Merriam's Herodotus. Comedy and Lyric Poetry — Study of the Structure of Comedy; Meter. Texts — Humphrey's Clouds; Starke's Wasps; Felton's 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." VIII. THE SCHOOL OF ENGLISH. PROFESSOR KERN*. ACTIXG-PROFESSOR WISE. MISS HUDDLESTON. During the first two terms of the Freshman year the work is in prose composition. It will be the aim of the course to give the student such a command of Enghsh as will enable him to write clear prose with proper regard for unitj^ proportion, and co- herence, in the paragraph and the whole composition. Selections from xAmerican literature are studied dm*- ing the last term with the purpose of developing hterary appreciation and the love of good literature. Es- pecial attention is given to Poe and Hawthorne. Four horn's. Text-Books — Composition and Rhetoric (Espenshade); Studies in American Literature (Riverside Series); Exercises. In the Sophomore year the class studies the histors" of English literature. Parallel with the de- velopment of the hterature, selected poems are studied with the view of applying the principles of the text- book and lecture. The third term is devoted to work in Shakespeare. Monthly exercises in short story writing will be required tliroughout the year. Foiu" hours. ♦Absent on leave. 64 MILLSAPS COLLEGE Text-Books — History of English Literature (Moody and Lovett) ; Standard English Poems (Pan coast); Shakespeare (Arden Series); Themes. The work of the Junior year is Anglo-Saxon and Middle English. During the first term the essen- tials of Anglo-Saxon phonology and grammar are taught by means of text-books and lectures, and selections from the prose and poetry are read. In the second term Chaucer is read in class and as parallel, and a brief course in Middle English Grammar is given. The course will conclude with the study of the historj^ of the language. Three hours. Text-Books — Old English Grammar (Smith); English Literature from the Beginning to the NoiTaan Conquest (Brooke); Chaucer's Prologue, Knight's Tale, and Nun's Priest's Tale (Mather); History of the English Language (Lounsbury). The poems of Tennyson and Browning will be studied in the Senior year, especial attention being given to the Idylls of the Iving in the class, and to the dramas of the two poets in the parallel reading. References to critical works will also be assigned. Two hours. Text-Books — Tennyson's Poetical Works (Globe ed.); Complete Poetical Works of Robert Browning (Globe ed.) COURSES LEADING TO THE MASTER'S DEGREE. Students applying for graduate work in English must pursue special courses of study in either Anglo- Saxon or English literature. The details of these courses will be arranged to suit the needs of the applicant, and can be had upon application to the professor. MILLSAPS COLLEGE 65 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. 66 MILLSAPS COLLEGE DEPARTMENT OF PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION THE LAW SCHOOL THE FACULTY William Belton Murrah, D. D., LL. D., President of the College. Edward Mayes, LL. D., Dean, for fourteen and a half years Professor of Law in the State Uni- versity. Albert H.Whitfield, LL. D., Professor; Chief Justice in the Supreme Court; for three and a half years Professor of Law in the State Uni- versity. William R. Harper, Esq., Professor. The work of the school will be distributed between the instructors as follows: 1. Professor Whitfield: The Law of Evidence; Criminal Law; Criminal Procedure; Law of Corpora- tions; Constitutional Law; Federal Courts, Jurisdic- tion and Practice; Conflict of Laws; the Law of Real Property. 2. Professor Harper: The Law of Pleading and Practice, Personal Property, Commercial Law, Con- tracts, Torts, Statute Law; Equity Jurisprudence; Equity Pleading, Practice. 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. MILLSAPS COLLEGE 73 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. EXPENSES— LITERARY DEPARTMENT. Tuition for full scholastic year... S30.00 Incidental fee 5.00 Library fee 1.00 A contingent deposit of S2.00 is required of each student boarding in houses owned by the College on entering the College, to be deposited with the Pres- ident in order to cover any damage that may occur. The whole of this deposit, or am^ unexpended part thereof, will be refunded on Commencement Day, provided the student has not previously left the Col- lege without permission. The tuition may be paid in two installments, as follows: First payment, $15.00, at the beginning of the session, and the second payment, S15.00, the first of Februarj^ The Incidental and Librarj^ fees must be paid in full when the student enters. Students preparing for the work of the ministry in any Christian denomination, and the sons of preach- ers, will have no tuition to pay, but all students will be required to pay the Incidental and Library' fees. Board in good families can be had at from 815.00 to $12.00 per month, including lodging and hghts. 84 MILLSAPS COLLEGE Students are expected to furnish their own fuel, but if they prefer, it will be supplied at a cost of $5.00 for the session. Each student is expected to furnish his own pillow, bed clothes and toilet articles. If students prefer to room in one of the cottages and take their meals elsewhere, table board will not cost them more than SI 1.00 per month. Ample facihties are provided for board at the above rates. Any student may feel assured that board will not cost him more than $125 for the entire session. Tuition in Law Department, $50.00. Laboratory Fees. — Students pursuing laboratory courses are charged additional fees varying with the department. In the Chemical Laboratory a fee is required in the nature of a deposit, an account being kept of material used and unexpended balances being returned to the student at the end of the year. In all departments, students are chargeable for unnecessary breakages. The laboratory fees are as follows: Chemistry $5.00 Physics 5.00 Geology 1.00 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 85 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. MILLSAPS COLLEGE OUTLINE OF COURSE OF INSTRUCTION. PREFATORY DEPARTMENT.
