HISTORY. The charter of Millsaps College, which was granted Feb- ruary 21, 1890, reads as follows: An ACT to incorporate Millsaps College. SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Mississippi, That John J. Wheat, Samuel M. Thames, Thomas J. Newell and Rufus M. Standifer, of the North Mississippi Con- ference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and Gawin D. Shands, David L. Sweatman, James B. Streater, and John Trice, lay members of said church within bounds of said Con- ference, and Thomas L. Mellen, Warren C. Black, Alexander P Watkins and Charles G. Andrews, members of the Mississippi Conference of said church, and Marion M. Evans, Luther Sexton, William L. Nugent, and Reuben W. Millsaps, of Jackson, lay members of said church, within the bounds of said Mississippi Conference, and Bishop Charles B. Galloway, be, and they are hereby constituted a body corporate and politic by and under the name and style of Millsaps College, and by that name they and their successors may sue and be sued, plead and be im- pleaded, 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 here- after 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 Col- lege and its affairs, as well as for t^heir 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 Con- stitution and laws of this State or of the United States, subject however, to the approval of the said two Conferences. Sec. 2. As soon as convenient after the passage of this Act, the persons named in the first section thereof shall meet in the City of Jackson, in this State, and organize by accep- tance of the charter and the election of Bishop Charles B. Gal- loway as their permanent President, and of such other persons 16 MILLSAPS COLLEGE as they may determine to fill the offices of Vice-President, Sec retary and Treasurer, and shall prescribe the duties, powers and terms of office of all said officers, except as to the term of their said President, 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 Trus- tees from each of said Conferences, one-half, who shall be Trustees of said College for three years and until their succes- sors are elected, and the other half not so selected shall remain in office for the term of six years and until their successors are chosen, as hereinafter mentioned. Upon the death, resig- nation or removal of said Galloway, or his permanent physical disability to discharge the duties of his office, the said Trus- tees may elect their President and prescribe his duties, powers and term of office. Sec. 3. That the said Trustees shall, before the meeting of said Conference next before the expiration of the term of office of any of their number, notify the Secretary of said Conferences thereof, and the vacancies shall be filled by said Conferences in such way and at such time as they may determine, and the persons so elected shall succeed to the office, place, jurisdic- tion, 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. Sec. 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 evidence 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 payee of all such notes and evidences of debt shall endorse and assign the same to the corporation herein provided for, which shall thereafter be vested with the full legal title thereto, and authorized to sue for and collect the same. HISTORY 17 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 ex- ceed one hundred 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 invite propositions from any city or town or individual in the State for such grounds, and may accept donations or grants of land for the site of said institution. Sec. 5. That the land or grounds not to exceed one hun- dred 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 maintained for the purpose contemplated by this Act, and no longer. Sec. 6. That the cost of education shall, as far as practi- cable, be reduced by said corporation to the lowest point con- sistent with the efficient operation of said College, and to this end reports shall be made to the said Conferences from year to year, and their advice in that behalf taken, and every reason- able effort shall be made to bring a collegiate education within the reach and ability of the poorer classes of the State. Sec. 7. That this Act take effect and be in force from and after its passage. The College has its origin in the general policy of the Meth- odist Church to maintain institutions under its own control for higher learning in the Arts and Sciences. At the annual session of the Mississippi Conference in the City of Vicksburg, on December 7, in the year 1888, the follow- ing resolutions were adopted by a large majority of the Con- ference: "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 ac- cessible point in the State of Mississippi. 18 MILLSAPS COLLEGE "2. That a committee of three laymen and three preachers he appointed to confer with a like committee to be appointed hy the North Mississippi Conference to formulate plans and to receive offers of donations of lands, buildings, or money for that purpose, and re- port to the next session of this Conference." In accordance with this action, the President of the Con- ference, Bishop R. K. Hargrove, appointed the following commit- tee: Rev. T. L. Mellen, Rev. W. C. Black, Rev. A. F. Watkins, Major R. W. Millsaps, Col. W. L. Nugent, and Dr. Luther Sexton. On December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi Conference met at Starkville, Mississippi, 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 Mississippi under the auspices of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. "That a committee of three laymen and three ministers be appointed to confer with a like committee already appointed by the Mississippi Conference." The following committee was accordingly appointed: Rev. J. J. Wheat, Rev. S. M. Thames, Rev. T. J. Newell, Hon. G. D. Shands, Capt. D. L. Sweatman, 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 January, 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 propo- sition to establish a Methodist College in Mississippi for the education of young men. In response to this earnest appeal Major R. W. Millsaps, a member of the commission, proposed to give $50,000 to endow the institution, provided the Methodists HISTORY ID of Mississippi would give a sum equal to this amount for said purpose. This proposition was enthusiastically approved, and after a plan of procedure was adopted, Bishop Charles B. Gal- loway was invited to conduct a campaign in the interest of the proposed endowment fund. Under the direction of this distinguished leader, the most gratifying progress was reported from time to time. The re- port submitted to the Conferences by the committee in Decem- ber, 1889, refers to the movement in the following language: "The canvass, on account of the numerous neces- sitated absences of Bishop Galloway from the State, could not be continuously carried on, but even the par- tial canvass made, embracing not more than one-fifth of our territory, resulted in the most gratifying and encouraging success. The interest awakened in the enterprise has extended beyond the limits of our own Church, and is felt by every denomniation of Christians, and by every section of the State. It is safe to say that no effort of Methodism has ever kindled such enthus- iasm 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 pro- posed institution, that numerous towns in the State have entered into earnest competition to secure the location of the College within the limits of their respec- tive 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 proposed College. As the work of rais- ing 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. 20 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 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' proposition, and thereupon $25,000 was imme- diately 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 unfailing interest in the great enterprise so happily and successfully inaugu- rated, 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 January, 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 consider the offers made by different towns, and finally on May 20, 1891, while in session in Winona, Mississippi, decided to locate the College in Jackson, the capital of the State. The citizens of Jackson contributed $21,000 for grounds and buildings, and to this sum Major Millsaps added $15,000. Plans for a commodious main building were immediate- ly procured, grounds were purchased, and in a comparatively short time buildings were in process of erection. HISTORY 21 At a meeting held in Jackson, April 28, 1892, Rev. W. B. Murrah was elected President, N. A. Patillo was elected Pro- fessor of Mathematics, W. L. Weber, Professor of English Lan- guage and Literature, G. G. Swearingen, Professor of Latin and Greek, and Rev. M. M. Black was chosen Principal of the Pre- paratory School. With this faculty the College began its first session on September 29, 1892. W. L. Weber was made Secretary of the Faculty. In 1893 the Department of Chemistry was created, and A. M. Muckenfuss was elected to take charge of it. In 1894 Rev. M. M. Black resigned as Principal of the Pre- paratory School, the school was reorganized, and Professor R. S. Ricketts was elected Headmaster. E. L. Bailey was elected Assistant Master. In 1897 the Department of History and Modern Languages was created, and J. P. Hanner was elected to the position. Work in these subjects had been offered prior to that time. In 1904 the department was divided, the Department of History and Economics, with J. E. Walmsley at its head, was established, and the Department of Modern Languages was created, with 0. H. Moore as its first head. In 1908 the chair of Assistant Master in Latin and English was added to the Preparatory School, and -S. G. Noble was elected to that position. In 1908 the office of Treasurer of the Faculty was created, and Dr. M. W. Swartz, Professor of Ancient Languages, was chosen for this place. In 1911 the office of Vice-President was created, and Dr. J. M. Sullivan, Professor of Chemistry, Physics and Natural History, was made Vice-President. At the same time the chair which Doctor Sullivan had occupied was divided, and Doctor Sullivan was made Professor of Chemistry and Geology, the Department of Physics and Biology was created, and G. L. Har- rell was placed in charge of that work. The unusual facilities for conducting a Law School in Jack- son led to the establishment, in 1896, of a Law School. Hon. Edward Mayes, ex-Chancellor of the University of Mississippi, 22 MILLSAPS COLLEGE and for more than fourteen years a professor of Law in that institution, took active control of the new School. In 1911 the Preparatory School was formally separated from the College. It is now a distinct institution with the of- ficial title of the Millsaps Preparatory School. It has a sepa- rate campus, buildings of its own, a faculty which conducts it as an independent school, and its facilities and buildings are described in its own catalogue. The facilities of the College were enlarged in 1895- 1896 by the generosity of Major Millsaps, who gave Webster Science Hall. In 1901 Mr. Dan A. James, of Yazoo City, built an observatory for the College, in memory of his father, Mr. Peter James, and of his brother, Mr. Samuel James, and fur- nished it with a fine telescope. Millsaps College can thus offer unusual advantages in Astronomy. In 1902, to supply the in- creasing demand for better dormitory and dining hall facilities, Major Millsaps gave the College the property formerly known as Jackson College, costing more than $30,000. This enabled the College to fill the demands made on it at that time. In addition to this gift Major Millsaps gave fifty acres of land immediately adjoining our campus, and valued at $50,000. Ample provision is thus made for the future expansion of the College. In 1906 the General Education Board offered to donate, from the funds provided by John D. Rockefeller for Higher Educa- tion, $25,000, provided an additional sum of $75,000 should be collected from other sources, for the permanent endowment of the College. Rev. T. W. Lewis, of the North Mississippi Con- ference was made financial Agent of the College to collect this sum. In 1910 $32,279.10 had been collected for this purpose. Mr. I. C. Enochs, a generous citizen of Jackson, gave an ad- ditional $5,000. Major Millsaps, with characteristic generosity, contributed the remaining $37,720.90. Thus the endowment of the College was increased by $100,000. At the Commencement of 1913 Major Millsaps gave to the College property on Capitol Street, Jackson, valued at $150,000. This is the largest single gift to the College. The dormitory of the Preparatory School was destroyed by fire in 1913, but it was promptly rebuilt and made more valuable HISTORY 23 by alterations which also improved greatly the appearance of [he structure. A more disastrous fire destroyed the main build- ing in 1914. But within a few months the old structure had been replaced by a far more commodious and imposing administra- tion building, costing $60,000. In 1917 the late Mr. George W. Galloway, of Madison bounty, established a scholarship in Millsaps College to be known as "The Marvin Galloway Scholarship ', in memory of ais son. the late Dr. Marvin Galloway, a graduate of Millsaps College in the class of 1902. At the decease of Major Millsaps in 1916, it was found that ae had left for the endowment of the College life insurance to :he amount of $88,000. This final benefaction fittingly closed .he long list of his gifts to the College. The following statement of the resources of the College, vhile not inclusive of all sources of its revenue, gives some dea of the solidity of its foundation, and also furnishes a guar- mtee of its perpetuity: Productive endowment, including revenue producing property $518,000 Buildings and grounds 210,000 Value of the Library 12,000 Value of Chemical. Physical and Biological apparatus 8,000 Furniture and Fixtures 4,000 Unproductive Endowment 43,000 Total $795,000 One of the purposes which the College keeps constantly in riew 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 ef- ficient operation of said College, and every reasonable effort shall be made to bring collegiate education within the reach of the poorer classes of the State." 24 MILLSAPS COLLEGE With a productive endowment of over $500,000 and buildings and grounds worth $250,000, it rests on a foundation which assures its perpetuity. It has the support of a great religious denomination, yet it is not sectarian in its policy. It numbers among its patrons, representatives of all the Christian churches. Since 1912 Millsaps College has been a member of the Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, a distinction enjoyed by only one other institution in this State. An im- partial committee of the Association made exhaustive inquiry into the financial resources of the institution, its courses, the training of its instructors, and the character of its work, and unanimously recommended it for membership. This inquiry extended over a year, and no conditions whatever were im- posed for the election of the College, since it had been of the first rank for some years. Its degrees are recognized by all institutions of learning as among the best in the land. PART II. ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS. ANNOUNCEMENTS AND REGULATIONS. EXPENSES. CONDITIONS OF ENTRANCE.

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS 2'J DEFINITIONS OF UNITS. The following definitions of the units in the requirements for entrance are designed on the one hand to guide the student in his preparation for the entrance examinations, and on the other to govern the high school principal and teacher in organ- izing the courses of study. ENGLISH. The study of English in school has two main objects: (1) command of correct and clear English, spoken and written; (2) ability to read with accuracy, intelligence, and appreciation. English A and B. Grammar and Composition. The first object requires instruction in Grammar and Compo- sition. English Grammar should ordinarily be reviewed in the secondary school; and correct spelling and grammatical accuracy should be rigorously exacted in connection- with all written work during the four years. The principles of English Composition governing punctuation, the use of words, sentences, and para- graphs should be thoroughly mastered; and practice in compo- sition, oral as well as written, should extend throughout the secondary-school period. Written exercises may well comprise letter writing, narration, description, and easy exposition and argument. It is advisable that subjects for this work be taken from the students' personal experience, general knowledge, and studies other than English, as well as from his reading in Litera- ture. Finally, special instruction in language and composition should be accompanied by concerted effort of teachers in all branches to cultivate in the student the habit of using good English in his recitations and various exercises, whether oral or written. English C. Literature. The second object is sought by means of two lists of books headed respectively Reading and Study, from which may be framed a progressive course in Literature covering four years. In connection with both lists, the student should be trained in 30 MILLSAPS COLLEGE reading aloud and be encouraged to commit to memory some of the more notable passages both in verse and in prose. As an aid to literary appreciation, he is further advised to acquaint himself with the most important facts in the lives of the authors whose works he reads and with their place in literary history. (a) Reading. The aim of this course is to foster in the student the habit of intelligent reading and to develop a taste for good literature, by giving him a first-hand knowledge of some of its best speci- mens. He should read the books carefully, but his attention should not be so fixed upon details that he fails to appreciate the main purpose and charm of what he reads. With a view to large freedom of choice, the books provided for reading are arranged in the following groups, from each of which at least two selections are to be made, except as other- wise provided under Group I.

The examination will be divided into two parts, one of which will be on Grammar and Composition, and the other on Litera- ture. In Grammar and Composition, the candidate may be asked specific questions upon the practical essentials of these studies, such as the relation of the various parts of a sentence to one another, the construction of individual words in a sentence ot reasonable difficulty, and those good usages of modern English which one should know in distinction from current errors. The main test in composition will consist in one or more essays, developing a theme through several paragraphs; the subject* will be drawn from the books read, from the candidate's other studies, and from his personal knowledge and experience quite apart from reading. For this purpose the examiner will provide several subjects, perhaps eight or ten, from which the candidate 34 MILLSAPS COLLEGE may make his own selections. He will not be expected to write more than four hundred words per hour. The examination in Literature will include: A, General questions designed to test such a knowledge and appreciation of Literature as may be gained by fulfilling the requirements defined under (a) Reading, above. The candidate will be re- quired to submit a list of the books read in preparation for the examination, certified by the principal of the school in which he was prepared; but this list will not be made the basis of detailed questions. B, A test on the books prescribed for study, which will consist of questions upon their content, form, and structure, and upon the meaning of such words, phrases, and allusions as may be necessary to an understanding of the works and an appreciation of their salient qualities of style.

Millsaps, whose munificent gifts have made the existence of the institu- tion possible. The College is the property of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and was organized by the concurreut action of the Mississippi and North Mississippi Conferences. It is not sectarian, however, but numbers among its patrons mem- bers of all the Christian denominations. 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 daily. The College is located in the northern part of the city, on a commanding elevation, with per- fect drainage, and in a beautiful campus of one hundred or more acres. A healthier spot it would be difficult to find within the limits of the State. Jackson is a city of 30,000 inhabitants, with handsome churches and public buildings, and is noted foK the refinement and intelligence of its people. Its literary, social and religious advantages are superior. The College has an endowment of $561,000, of which $518,000 is productive, and several partially endowed scholarships. The first scholastic session began September 29, 1892, and the College has had remarkable prosperity from the beginning. The generous founder, Major Millsaps, by the gift of the Webster Science Hall, at a cost of $10,000, the Jackson College property at a cost of more than $30,000, and fifty acres of land immediately adjoining our campus, has greatly enlarged our facilities. THE JAMES OBSERVATORY. Millsaps College is prepared to offer excellent advantages in the study of astronomy. The late Mr. Dan A. James, of Yazoo City, Mississippi, built an observatory for the College in memory of his father, Mr. Peter James, and of his brother, Mr. Samuel James. He also furnished the observatory with a fine telescope. The Observatory building and equipment has recently been ren- ovated, and is in excellent order. The class of 1916 donated a fine photographic lens to the observatory, which adds materially to its equipment. 46 MILLSAPS COLLEGE CARNEGIE MILLSAPS LIBRARY. Near the close of the session of 1905-1906, Mr. Andrew Car- negie offered to give $15,000 for a library building if the trus- tees would supply an endowment of equal amount. Major Mill- saps added to his many contributions by giving the full amount of the endowment. With the income from this endowment ana the complete A. L. A. card catalogue, the College is able to of- fer library facilities that are not surpassed in the State. Dur- ing the present session seventy periodicals were received in the reading room and eight hundred volumes were added to the shelves. In addition to the books thus obtained, the library has been so fortunate as to secure most of the well selected libraries of the late Dr. C. K. Marshall, John W. Burruss and Rev. W. G. Millsaps, the entire library of Colonel W. L. Nugent, besides many volumes from the libraries of ex-Chancellor Edward Mayes, Dr. A. P. Watkins and Major R. W. Millsaps. The Martha A. Turner Fund, founded by Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of Carrollton, Mis- sissippi, is used for the purchase of books in English literature. The students also have access to the State Library and the Jackson Public Library, which are unusually complete in many departments. RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION. Students will be required to be present at morning worship in the College Chapel. In this daily service the Faculty and students come together to hear the reading of the sacred Scrip- tures and to engage in singing and prayer. Students must at- tend religious worship at least once on the Sabbath in one of the churches of Jackson. THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. One of the most potent factors in the College for developing the students into a broader life is the Young Men's Christian Association. Its policy and aim is to develop the three-fold na- ture of the students — the moral, intellectual and spiritual. It is a well known fact that the student who develops himself in- ANNOUNCEMENTS 47 tellectually, but neglects his moral and spiritual nature, is :d no sense a complete man. Unless one becomes a well rounded man, he is not fit to fight the battles of life. Realizing this, the Association was organized shortly after the College was founded. It has done as much to mold character and to hold up a high standard of ideals before the students as any other department in connection with the College. It has been dominated by the double purpose of leading men to accept Christ and to form such associations as will guard them against the temptations of college life. The Association has done much to strengthen the spiritual life and influence of the College, to promote Christian character and fellowship and progressive Christian work. It trains its members for Christian service and leads them to devote their lives to the cause of Christ where they can accomplish the most for the extension of the Kingdom of God. In order to accomplish this purpose the Association holds weekly meetings on Friday evenings. These services are usually conducted by some of the students, but occasionally by some member of the Faculty, or by some min ister from town. Realizing the importance of a young man's choosing his life work while in college, a series of addresses, on "Life Work,' - has been arranged and prominent men of each profession are invited to address the Association from time to time on their respective professions. An annual revival is held some time in the year, lasting more than a week, which results in leading many young men to Christ each year. These services last year were conducted by Rev. C. W. Crisler, of Jackson, Miss., and resulted in re- newing enthusiasm and in giving great stimulus to Association work. The Association sends yearly a delegation to the Southern Students' Conference at Blue Ridge, North Carolina. Since the ten days of the Convention are assidiously devoted to discuss- ing Association work and problems, the delegates always return enthusiastic and zealous for doing Christian service. The work of the Association is carried on by the students; each man has his part to do according to the plan of organiza- 48 MILLSAPS COLLEGE tion. The President, elected by the members, appoints chair- men of the nine committees, each composed of three or more men. It is the duty of the Publicity Committee to advertise, by means of blotters and in other ways, all meetings, and secure good attendance. The Membership Committee meets all new students as they arrive, and gives them any information desired con- cerning College, boarding facilities, etc. Afterwards this commit- tee calls on each student and urges him to become a member of the Association. The Reception Committee has charge of College Night, and any other entertainment that the Associa- tion may choose to give during the year. The object of College Night is to make the students acquainted with one another and to interest the new men in the different phases of College life. The Employment Committee assists deserving students in get- ting employment for their spare time. The City Mission Com- mittee has charge of work in different parts of the city. The Devotional Committee provides leaders, and the Music Commit- tee, whose chairman is the Treasurer of the Association, col- lects the annual dues ($1.50) and raises funds sufficient for meeting current expenses. But most important are the Bible Study and Mission Study Committees. Bible Study groups are formed at the Dormitory and at the boarding houses. The students engage in daily Bible reading and meet for one hour each week, for discussion. The Mission Study Committee arranges courses in biographies of missionaries in various mission fields and secures leaders for the various classes. The Y. M. C. A. is back of every phase of College life, and ft is expected that every student shall identify himself with the organization. LITERARY SOCIETIES. Two large halls have been provided for the Literary So- cieties organized for the purpose of improvement in debate, declamation, composition, and acquaintance 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 ANNOUNCEMENTS 49 societies, and contribute greatly to the improvement of their members. During the session of 1915-16 the young ladies organized a Literary Society, which is named the Clionian Society. PUBLIC LECTURES. With the view of promoting general culture among the students, and to furnish them with pleasant and profitable en- tertainment, a lyceum lecture course is conducted by the Col- lege authorities. There are from three to six numbers. The best talent available for the money will be engaged each year and each student upon entering College will be required to pay along with his other fees $1.00 for a season ticket to these lectures. BOARDING FACILITIES. Students of Millsaps College, as a rule, arrange for their living in one of three ways: 1. There are eight small cottages, in which students can board themselves at reduced cost. The cottages are admir- ably situated on the eastern side of the campus. The rooms are sufficiently large to accommodate two students each. The room rental per student in the cottages is $9.00 for the session and must be paid as follows: $5.00 at the beginning of the session, and $4.00 the 1st of February. The coal bill a year per student is not more than $5.00, when two students live in one room. The boys in these cottages have their own dining room and their meals cost them about $10.00 a month. Lights amount to very little. Students living in the cottages furnish their rooms. Furniture for one room need not cost more than $10.00. It will be seen from the above that the cost to a student living in a cottage need not exceed $12.00 a month. Students wishing to engage a room in one of the cottages should write Dr. J. M. Sullivan, Treasurer, at the College. 2. There are "Student Homes," capable of accommodating a limited number of boarders, and each is in charge of a Christ- ian family. These homes furnish room, light, board and fur- niture at a cost of $16.00 to $20.00 a month. Students furnish 50 MILLSAPS COLLEGE their own fuel which costs about $5.00 a session. Students fur- nish their bedding and linen. The necessary cost in these homes ranges from $15.00 to $19.00 a month a student. Students wish- ing to engage board in one of these homes before coming tc Millsaps to enter College should write the Secretary for names and addresses. 3. Founder's Hall is open to a limited number of College students. Here the expense is only $17.50 per month, including room, lights, steam heat, board, matron's services, and hospital facilities. Students may room in the cottages and take their meals at the Preparatory School. There are Christian homes where students may get rooms without board. In such cases the student may get meals at the Preparatory School or at private homes. MEMORIAL COTTAGES. The friends of the late Rev. John A. Ellis, of the Mississippi Conference, and the 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. Ellis Cottage and the J. H. Brooks Cottage. ATHLETICS. Millsaps College is a member of the Southern Inter-collegi- ate Athletic Association, and takes part in all intercollegiate games except football. Games and sports of all kinds are under the special direction of the General Athletic Association, a stu- dent organization, whose object is to promote this class of phy- sical exercise. The faculty exercises a general advisory control, endeavoring to foresee and avert dangerous tendencies or excess in physical exercises while giving to the student, as far as pos- sible, entire liberty of management; a strict limit is placed upon the character of the intercollegiate games and the number played away from the College. Our new athletic field is equipped with an excellent diamond, a perfect one-fourth mile cinder track, a grandstand with seat- ing capacity of 1,000, a fine set of hurdles and all other fixtures needed in field sports. The cost of this equipment was about ANNOUNCEMENTS 51 five thousand dollars, the greater part of which was donated by Major R. W. Millsaps. The work of tufting, protection and decoration is going on steadily and will, it is estimated, cost two thousand dollars more. MILITARY DRILL. During the past year military drill has been required of all students in the College not physically unfit for the exercise. This has been conducted by an experienced drill-master, and has been supervised by Major John G-. Workizer, of the United States Army. MATRICULATION. The courses of study are composed in three schools, two of which are academic and one professional. The former include the College and School of Graduate Studies, the latter the School of Law. The various departments are under the direction of professors who are responsible for the systems and methods pursued. The session begins on the third Wednesday of September and continues, with recess of about ten days at Christmas, until the first Tuesday in June. The first two days of the session are given to registration, and all students, both old and new, are required during that time to place their names upon the books of the College and the rolls of their respective classes. Lecture courses begin Friday, and absences will be recorded against any student not present from the opening lecture of each course. EXAMINATIONS. The examinations in each class are held in writing. Oral examinations are held in some departments, but they are auxil- iary to the written examinations, which in conjunction with the class standing as determined by the daily work of the student, are the main tests of the student's proficiency. REPORTS. Reports are sent at the close of each quarter to the parent or guardian of each student. These reports give the number of unexcused absences from lectures, and indicate, as nearly as 52 MILLSAPS COLLEGE practicable, the nature of the progress made by him in his work at the College. HONOR SYSTEM. Not the least of the educational influences of the College is the honor system. According to this system the student is not watched by the members of the Faculty during examinations, but is required to pledge his honor that he has neither received nor given any aid during the period of examination. If a student is accused of cheating, he is given a full and fair trial by the Honor Council, which is composed of seven men selected by the students. Experience has shown that under this system not only has cheating been lessened, but that a spirit of honor and truth has been fostered which tends to include not only the examina- tion tests, but all relations between student and professor. REGULATIONS. REGISTRATION OF NEW STUDENTS. Applicants seeking admission to the College for the first time should present themselves to the Secretary of the College at his office in the main building at some time during the first certificate or examination, previously stated, will be furnished moral character must be presented, signed by the proper of- ficial of the institution attended during the previous session, or by some person of known standing. Each candidate who satisfies these requirements and those for admission by diploma, certificate of examination, previously stated, will be furnished with a card containing the courses which he proposes to pursue during the session. This card must be presented in turn to each professor concerned, who will, on satisfying himself that the applicant is prepared to pursue the course in question with profit, sign the card. The card must then be carried to the Treasurer, who will, after the College fees have been paid to him, sign the card. On payment of these fees the applicant will turn his card in to the Secretary. No student shall be admitted into any department of the College, except upon presentation to the professor of the de- partment of the Treasurer's receipt for all entrance and tuition fees. In no case are entrance or laboratory fees returned. Tuition fees will be charged by the term and must be paid not later than Thursday of the second week of each term. No tuition fee will be returned unless a student is disqualified for work by severe illness for more than a half term. No student shall be considered by the faculty as an appli- cant for graduation until he shall have settled with the Treas- urer all his indebtedness to the College. Students who have already been matriculated as members of the College will present themselves directly to the members of the faculty not later than the second day of the session and conform as regards the registration in their respective classes and payment of dues, to the requirements stated in the preced- ing paragraph. 54 MILLSAPS COLLEGE DELAYED REGISTRATION. Students are not permitted to delay their registration through carelessness or for inadequate reasons. Any student, new or old, who fails to present himself for registration during the first week of the session will be admitted to registration only upon the consent of the President. RESIDENCE, ATTENDANCE AND GRADE. The academic year begins on the morning of the third Wed- nesday of September and continues for thirty-seven weeks Thanksgiving Day is a holiday, and there is a Christmas recess beginning on the evening of the twenty-first of December and continuing about ten days. Attendance is required of each student throughout the en- tire session, with the exception of the days above indicated, un- less he has received permission to be temporarily absent or to withdraw before its close. Leave of absence is granted by the faculty or president for sufficient reasons, and must in every case be obtained in advance. While in residence each student is required to attend regularly all lectures and other prescribed exercises and all examinations in the courses which he pursues, (unless excused for cause), and in every way to conform to the regulations of the College. Absence trom the College is permitted only upon the writ- ten leave of the President, obtained in every case in advance. But leaves of absence for purposes of accompanying the athletic teams, debating teams and all other recognized clubs will not be granted except to officers and members of the organization. Absence of athletic teams and other student organizations is provided for by faculty regulations. Absence from classes is not excused except for prolonged sickness or like providential cause, and then only by faculty action. Absence from examinations will not be excused except for sickness on day of examination, attested by a physician's cer- tificate, or other cause which the faculty by special order may approve. An unexcused absence or presentation of an unpledged paper is counted as a total failure in the examination in which REGULATIONS 55 it occurs. A student whose absence from examination is ex- cused is admitted to the special examination ordered by the faculty. Change of classes. Students cannot change classes or drop classes or take up new classes except by the consent of the faculty. The grade of the student in any class, either for a term or for the session, is determined by the combined class standing and the result of examination. In case the examination grade falls below 60 per cent., the class standing is not averaged. Class standing in any course is determined by the regularity of attendance of the student upon the lectures (and laboratory or other similar exercises where included) in the course in ques- tion and by the faithful performance of his work as indicated by the answers when questioned, by written exercises, note books, the faithful performance of laboratory (or other similar) work, etc. Students are regarded by the faculty as under the law of honor in matters affecting class standing or in examina- tions. The grade for passing in any course is 70 per cent. Re-examination. A student who attains in any course an examination grade for the term below 60 per cent., but not below 50 per cent., is admitted by the faculty to a special examination at a time set by the faculty. Withdrawals. Voluntary withdrawals from the College require the written consent of the faculty or President. Enforced withdrawal is inflicted by the faculty for habitual delinquency in class, habitual idleness or any other fault which prevents the student from fulfilling the purpose for which he should have come to the College. CONDUCT. The rules of the College require from every student deco- rous, sober and upright conduct as long as he remains a member of the College, whether he be within the precincts or not. They 56 MILLSAPS COLLEGE require from the student regular and diligent application to his studies, regular attendance upon chapel and Sunday services at one of the churches. Drunkenness, gambling, and dissoluteness are strictly for- bidden, and any student found guilty of them is punished by suspension or expulsion. Firearms. The keeping of firearms by the students is strictly forbidden. Visiting the City at Night. Students are forbidden to visit the town, or other place away from the College, at night, without permission from the President. EXPENSES. Parents desiring to settle all College bills, such as board, etc., through the Treasurer may do so by simply sending check to Dr. J. M. Sullivan, and specifying what the enclosure is in- tended to cover. College Fees.

The Academic Schools comprise the Departments of Lan- guages, Mathematics, Science, History, Social Science, Litera- ture, Philosophy, Education and Biblical Instruction. In the undergraduate courses of these departments is comprised the work of the College with the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science; in the graduate courses is comprised the work of Graduate Studies, with the degree of Master of Arts and Master of Science. B.A. Degree. The Bachelor of Arts Course offers special instruction in the departments of Latin and Greek. This course presupposes two years of preparatory work in Greek or Modern Languages, three in Latin. In order to be allowed to enter upon the B.A. Course, the applicant must stand an approved examination in English, History, Science, Mathematics, Latin and Greek, or Modern Languages. B.S. Degree. The Bachelor of Science Course offers special work in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. Instead of Greek and partly of Latin, French, Spanish, and German are studied. In order to be allowed to enter upon the B.S. Course, the appli- cant must stand an approved examination in English, History, Science, Mathematics, Latin and Modern Languages. M.A. and M.S. Degrees. The degrees of M.A. and M.S. may be conferred upon graduates who hold the B.A. or B.S. degree from Millsaps Col- lege, or from some other institution of equal rank. For the attainment of either degree one year of residence at Millsaps College is required after the attainment of the Bachelor's degree, and also satisfactory completion of advanced work to the amount of fifteen hours. This work must be taken in not 64 MILLSAPS COLLEGE more than three different subjects; a major subject, in which a minimum of six hours credit must be earned; and one or two minor subjects to the amount of six hours credit. All the work of the major subject must be of an advanced character, to which undergraduates are not admitted. The minor subject or subjects may be pursued in senior college courses. No grade less than 80% shall be credited towards the requirements for the Master's degree in any subject. In addition to the twelve hours required as above stated, a thesis dealing with some phase of the major subject must be sub- mitted by the candidate six weeks before his graduation, and approved by a committee of the Faculty. In time requirements this shall be considered equivalent to three hours of work. A full outline of the required and the elective studies of fered for the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science is given in the pages following this announcement. Sixty-four year-hours are required for graduation both for the B.A. and the B.S. degrees. Specific courses are prescribed in the Freshman and the Sophomore classes, including alterna- tive courses offered in ancient and modern languages. Courses in the Junior and Senior classes are partially prescribed and partially elective, nine hours of electives beiug offered in those classes. The normal course is 16 hours for each year. Not fewer than 12 hours nor more than 19 hours may be taken in a year, unless by express permission of the President and Faculty. A student who makes a grade of 70% in a subject will be advanced in that subject from class to class, but for graduation a total of 27 grade points is required. The completion of any college course with a grade of 80% for the year shall entitle a student to one grade point for each year-hour, and the com- pletion of a course with a grade of 90% for the year shall entitle a student to two grade points for each year-hour. HONORS. A student who has earned 64 grade points during his course shall be graduated with "honors"; one who has earned 128 grade points shall be graduated with "high honors".

DEPARTMENT OF ANCIENT LANGUAGES. PROFESSOR KEY. ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR HAMILTON. It is believed that the mastery of these highly inflected languages will effect the purposes aimed at in education in the following ways: (a) Constant drill in the processes of correlation, comparison, discrimination and classification of the phenomena of language, which is required both in the study of inflection and syntax and in translation, affords a most rigorous exer cise in correct scientific method and produces habits and re- flexes of accuracy, efficiency and system. (b) A first-hand acquaintance with the language and modes of expression of the ancients and with the evolution of literary forms lays open a field of knowledge that is essential to a full understanding of modern life and literature. (c) Intimate contact with the very words which express the best ideals and aspirations of those great spirits whose influence has been most abiding and formative in our world should shape the character to fine and worthy purposes. LATIN. Courses A and B.

HARPER. The rooms are given up to the study of this subject are mod- ern, both in size and convenience, and occupy the whole lower floor of Webster Science Hall. One of the laboratories opens into a dark room for photography, and into a room specially isolated and designed to retain delicate apparatus. The general laboratory opens conveniently into a small fuming room outside of the building, so that vapors may not pass from one to another, and is also connected with a storeroom. Gas, water, experiment tables, hoods, and pneumatic troughs are to be found in con venient places. There is a cellar for gas and electric genera- tors, and for assay and other furnaces. A large lecture room on the second floor is supplied with modern equipment for gen- eral use in science work. DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY 73 The course in this department consists of three years of Chemistry, one year being required of candidates for all degrees, while B.S. students are required in addition to take a second year. The subjects are taught by recitations and lectures and work which each student must perform in the laboratory. It is intended that the laboratories be kept well equipped witn 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 inspection, but also cultivate a hand careful to the smallest detail, and eye observant of the slightest phe- nomenon, and habits of neatness, skill and economy. Each student will be expected to keep accurate notes. Entrance credit for at least one unit in Natural Science is required for admission to this department. I. (a) Inorganic Chemistry. This course is designed to give the student a thorough work- ing knowledge of general chemistry, including a careful study of fundamental laws of chemistry, the occurrence, properties and preparations 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 chemistry. This course is a prescribed study of the Sophomore Class for all degrees, and is a prerequisite to either of the other courses in chemistry. Lectures and recitations, three hours.

Part II of Fraser and Squair, French Grammar will be completed, with further drill on the irregular verbs and with weekly compositions. The greater por- tion of the time will be devoted to the careful reading of texts from nineteenth century prose fiction and drama. Course II. Extensive reading in class and in parallel assignments, with special stress laid on the literary side of the works. The first term will be devoted to the seventeenth century in order to give the student some first-hand knowledge of the Golden Age of DEPARTMENT OF ROMANCE LANGUAGE 91 French Literature. The plays of Corneille, Moliere, and Racine will be read along with selections from the most important of the prose writers. Special emphasis will be laid on the social and political setting and on the literary ideals of the age. The second term will be devoted to the study of the novel and short story of the Realistic and Naturalistic schools of the nineteenth Century. Strachey's Landmarks in French Literature, supplemented by lectures and by assignments from Lanson's Historie de la Literature Francaise, will serve to give the student a general idea of the development of French literature. Course III. French Romanticism. Henning's Representative Lyrics of the Nineteenth Century will be used as a basis of the course. In addition will be read prose or dramatic works of Chateau- briand, Lamartine, Hugo, Musset, and Gautier. One hour of this course may, at the discretion of the class, be devoted to advance composition and conversation. SPANISH. In as much as only two years of Spanish can be offered, the courses are more advanced and both are ranked as college classes. Admission to Course I will be restricted to Juniors and Seniors in college, or to students who have completed one year of modern language study. Under no condition will a student be permitted to begin French and Spanish the same year. Two entrance units in Spanish will be required for admission to Course II. Course I. A beginner's course in grammar and reading. The class will be conducted along the same lines as the French work DeVitis, Spanish Grammar will be used in 1917-18. Course II. Review of Syntax and verb forms with weekly prose compos tion.

THE DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SCIENCES. PROFESSOR NOBLE. PROFESSOR LIN. The aim of this department will be rather to do well a small amount of work than to cover a large field. Courses in Eco- nomics, Political Science, and Sociology will be offered. While these are elementary in their scope and nature, they will serve as a sound basis for further study in these subjects, and will be useful to those who seek to understand and improve our financial, political, and social life and institutions. ECONOMICS. PROFESSOR NOBLE. A comprehensive survey of the field is undertaken, dwelling particularly upon the laws governing the production and con- sumption of wealth, business organization, wages and labor, rent, interest, etc. Recitations, readings, and discussions. Two hours, both terms. SOCIOLOGY. PROFESSOR NOBLE. The fundamentals of this science will receive due attention during the first term. During the second term, attention will be concentrated upon the social problems which confront the Southern people in particular. A statistical investigation of social conditions in a Mississippi community will constitute a part of the course. Readings, discussions, and lectures. Two hours, both terms. POLITICAL SCIENCE. PROFESSOR LIN. During the First Term the origin of modern government in Europe and America will be considered historically. In the Second Term a brief course on International Law will be given. Text-Books — The State (Wilson). Outlines of International Law (Stockton). DEPARTMENT OF COLLEGE EXTENSION 93 XIII. DEPARTMENT OF COLLEGE EXTENSION. PROFESSOR KEY, PROFESSOR NOBLE, PROFESSOR HARRELL, Committee of the Faculty. The purpose of the Extension Department is to bring the College into closer touch with the community. It is the means by which the College hopes to widen the range of its usefulness to the people of Mississippi. It is our belief that the College should be content not merely with dispensing information to those who have the means to come regularly under our tuition, but that it should in various ways extend its advantages to the homes of people in all parts of the state. The Department desires to communicate with any who wish to offer suggestion? as to how we may be of greater service to the people beyond our walls. Activities of the Extension Department. I. We have co-operated with the high schools of the state by encouraging the organization of literary societies. We have published and circulated a list of questions for debate with references and information, and drafted a model constitution for use in high school societies. Our activity was instrumental in the establishment of a number of societies in various schools We have also provided judges and referees for high school athletic contests. II. We have co-operated with communities by providing public lectures by our faculty members under the auspices of schools, clubs, and churches. III. Four Extension classes for the benefit of the people of Jackson have been organized and conducted by members of the faculty. 1. The Department of Education through Professor Noble has conducted a special course in elementary school methods and management for the benefit of Jackson teachers. Seventy teachers in two years have thus received training while in serv- ice. More than twenty have used the course as a means of securing a renewal of their licenses. 94 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 2. A demand came from the ladies of the community for instruction in Biblical literature, and Doctor Watkins organized and conducted a class of ladies in this study. 3. War work activities have interested in one way or an- other nearly all members of the faculty. The Extension Depart- ment sensed a demand of the men subject to draft for training along special lines and organized classes to meet the need. Professor Harrell conducted for six weeks a course in wire- less signalling. About twenty-five students were enrolled, and one was sent immediately into service as a wireless operator. Professor Burton successfully conducted a course in French for Soldiers in which thirty men received instruction. THE SUMMER SCHOOL. June 10 to August 10, 1918. The Summer School has been more thoroughly organized, and will be conducted by Professors G. L. Harrell and D. M. Key. Courses will be offered in Astronomy, Education, Greek, Latin, Mathematics, Physics, and in other subjects as they may be arranged with the Heads of the Departments concerned. The charges for these courses will be at the rate of $20.00 for one course, and $30.00 for two courses, payable in advance. There will be an incidental fee of $1.00 for each student regis- tering for work. In laboratory courses the regular laboratory fee of the College will be charged.

GENERAL INFORMATION. In the original foundation of Millsaps College it was de- signed by its promoters to establish, in due season, and when the success of the Literary Department should be assured, a Department of Professional Education, embodying a Law and a Theological School. In the year 1896, 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 the institution should be opened for the students of Law, and Professor Edward Mayes was en- gaged to take the active control and instruction of that class. Our Law School was not, even then, in any sense an ex- periment. Before the step was determined on, a respectable class was already secured for the first session. Doctor Mayes came to us with fourteen years' experience as law professor in the State University, and with a reputation for ability and skill as an instructor which was thoroughly established. He had already secured the assistance of a number of most ac- complished lawyers, who promised 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 expiration of the college year fifteen students presented themselves to the Hon. H. C. Conn, Chancellor, presiding over the Chancery Court, for examination for license to practice law in conformity with the requirements of the Annotated Code of 1892. They were subjected to a rigid written examination in open court, and their answers were, as the law directs, forwarded by the Chan- cellor to the Supreme Judges. Every applicant passed the or- deal successfully and received his license. We are now closing the twenty-first annual session of our Law School, and no student has failed in any year to pass the examination and receive his license. The change in 1917 from an examination by the Chan- 100 MILLSAPS COLLEGE cellor to one by a Board of Law Examiners has in no wise altered the result. Any student who is prepared to take the course and will apply himself is fully equipped for the examina- tion. We now have two hundred and ninety-seven graduates. The nature of the examination passed, being held by the Board in its official character, puts beyond question or cavil the genuineness of that result. We do not ask our patrons, or those who contemplate becoming our patrons, to accept any statement of our 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 the State itself, speaking through its Board of Law Examiners. This is more than can be said for any other young lawyer in the State. None others have such a double approval as a part of their regular course. The location of the school at Jackson enables the managers to offer 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 courts and whose arguments will furnish an invaluable series of object lessons and an unfailing fountain of instruction to the students. Here also are located courts of all kinds known in the State, em- bracing not only the ordinary 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 highest, 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 which 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 wit- ness the deliberations of that body and observe the passage of the laws which, in after life, he may be called upon to study and apply. Thus he acquires a knowledge of the methods and practice of legislation. THE LAW SCHOOL 101 Applicants 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 preliminary examination, a good English ele- mentary 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 satisfactory cer- tificate of good moral character. Each student will be required to pay a tuition fee upon en- trance of sixty dollars, for the session's instruction. No rebate of this fee will be made, because a student may desire to at- tend for a period of 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 examination of the students on lessons assigned in standard 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 ex- amination 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 adjudications and legis- lation. The course will be carefully planned and conducted so as to meet the requirements of the Mississippi law in respect to the admission of applicants to practice law, by examination be- fore 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 Law of Pleading and Evidence; (4) The Commercial 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 Constitution of the United States. 102 MILLSAPS COLLEGE The objects set for accomplishment by this school are two: First, to prepare young men for examination for 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 scholarship than what is merely needed for a successful examination for license. Therefore, our course of study is so arranged as fully to meet both of these ends. The curriculum of the Junior Class will embrace each of the eight subjects on which the applicant for license is required by the Code to be examined. A careful, detailed, and adequate course is followed, so that any student, even though he shall never have read any law before coming to us, if he will apply himself with reasonable fidelity, can go before the State Board of Law Examiners at the expiration of his Junior year, with a certainty of success. The preparation of applicants for license in one year, will be in short, a specialty of this school. When the 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 State Board of Law Ex- aminers, or he may stand his examination before the law pro- fessor simply for advancement to the Senior class, if he does not care to stand for license at that time. If he shall be ex- amined before the State Board of Law Examiners and pass, he will be admitted to the Senior class, and of course, without fur- ther 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 prefers to postpone his examination for license, he 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 THE LAW SCHOOL 103 conclusion represents that much legal accomplishment in excess of the learning needed for license to practice. The Senior class is required to attend the recitations of the Junior class by way of review, and to he 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 conduct of cases. LIST OF BOOKS USED.

MILLSAPS PREPARATORY SCHOOL. The Preparatory Department of Millsaps College was re- organized in 1911 into a separate school independent of the Col- lege in course of study, discipline and general management. The home of the Millsaps Preparatory School is Founder's Hall, a large three-story brick building, containing the assembly hall, class rooms, the dining hall and about fifty dormitory rooms. The building is steam heated and equipped with electric lights, water-works and all modern conveniences. Discipline. Regulations suited to the needs of youthful students are enforced. Gentlemanly conduct is insisted upon. Students are forbidden to go to town at night, except when absolutely neces- sary. From 7 to 9:30 at night they are required to assemble in the study hall and engage in preparation of lessons. Course of Study. The course of study is that of the regular four-year high school. "Thoroughness" is the watchword. As far as possible, individual attention is given to backward and delinquent stu- dents. When the course is completed the graduate is prepared to enter any college or university in the country, or to begin at once the active duties of life. EXPENSES.
