AN ACT to incorporate Millsaps College. 

SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State 
of Mississippi, That Thomas J. Wheat, Samuel M. Thames, 
Thomas J. Newell and Rufus M. Standifer, of the North Missis-

Conference, and Thomas L. Mellen, Warren C. Black, Alexander 
F. 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 
scholarships and make by-laws for the government of said Col- 
lege 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 Constitu- 
tion and laws of this State of the United States, subject how- 
ever, to the approval of the said 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 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 
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 successors are 
elected, and the other half not so selected shall remain in office 
for the term of six years and until their succssors are chosen, 


as hereinafter mentioned. Upon the death, resignation or re- 
moval 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 of- 

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 a way and at such time as they may determine, and the per- 
sons so selected 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 Con- 

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 re- 
ceipted 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 author- 
ized to sue for and collect the same. 

The said corporation shall have the power to select any ap- 
propriate town, city, or other place in this State at which to 
established this College, and to purchase grounds not to exceed 
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 or- 
ganization and the best interest 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 hy the corporation as a site and a campus i""i

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 prac- 
ticable, 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 reasonable 
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 af- 
ter 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 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 ac- 
cessible point in the State of Mississippi. 

"2. That a committee of three laymen and three 
preachers 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 report 
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 com- 
mittee: Rev. T. L. Mellen, Rev. W. C. Black, Rev. A. F. Wat- 
kins, Major R. W. Millsaps, Col. W. L. Nugent, and Dr. Luther 


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 

"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 commissions 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 edu- 
cation 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 of Mis- 
sissippi 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. Galloway was in- 
vited to conduct a campaign in the interest of the proposed en- 
dowment 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 December, 
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 partial can- 
vass made, embracing not more than one-fifth of our 
territory, resulted in the most gratifying and encourag- 
ing success. The interest 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 pro- 
foundly convinced that the College is an absolute neces- 

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 lo- 
cation of the college within the limits of their respect- 
ive 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 memDer 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 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, 1S92, 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 immediately 
paid by Major Millsaps to the Executive Committee and the fol- 
lowing 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 inaugurat- 
ed, the Church and State owe him a large debt of grati- 

The Conference 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: 










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 imme- 
diately procured, grounds were purchased, and in a comparatively 
short time buildings were in process of erection. 



The College opened its doors for the reception of students 
in 1S92 with Rev. W. B. Murrah as President, and three profes- 
sors in the College. A Preparatory School was opened at the 
same time with one Master. From time to time its facilities 
have been enlarged and additional departments created, until it 
now has, in addition to its President, fifteen professors in thir- 
teen departments. 

The Presidents of the College have been Rev. W. B. Murrah, 
now Bishop Murrah (1892-1910), Professor D. C. Hull (1910- 
1912), and Rev. A. F. Watkins, D. D., (1912- .) 

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, 
and for more than fourteen years a professor of law in that in- 
stitution, took active control of the new school. In 1918 it was 

In 1911 the Academy was formally separated from the Col- 
lege. It was made a distinct institution with the official title 
of the Millsaps Academy. In 1922 it was discontinued. 

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 furnished it with a fine 
telescope. Millsaps College can thus offer unusual advantages 
in astronomy. In 1902, to supply the increasing demand for 
better dormitory and dining hall facilities, Major Millsaps 
gave the College the property formerly known as Jackson Col- 
lege, costing more than $30,000. This enabled the College to 
fill the damands 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 Education, 


$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 Conference 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 additional $5,000. Major 
Millsaps, with characteristic generosity, contributed the remain- 
ing $37,720.90. Thus the endowment of the College was in- 
creased by $1000,000. 

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 
by alterations which also improved greatly the appearance of 
the structure. A more disastrous fire destroyed the main 
building in 1914. But within a few months the old structure 
had been replaced by a far more commodious and imposing ad- 
ministration building, costing $60,000. 

In 1917 the late Mr. George W. Galloway, of Madison 
County, established a scholarship in Millsaps College to 
be known as "The Marvin Galloway Scholarship," in memory of 
his 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 
he had left for the endowment of the College life insurance to 
the amount of of $88,000. This final benefaction fittingly closed 
the long list of his gifts to the College. 

In 1921 Rev. J. M. Burton, of Culpeper, Virginia, in memory 
of his son, Doctor John Marvin Burton, an honored professor in 
Millsaps College who left his class room for service in France, 
where he gave his life for his country, donated to Millsaps 
College the proceeds of the life insurance of his son, amounting 
to $10,000. 

The following statement of the resources of the College, 
while not inclusive of all sources of its revenue, gives some idea 
of the solidity of its foundation, and also furnishes a guarantee 
of its perpetuity: 


Productive endowment, Including reve- 
nue producing property $"^3,421 

Unproductive Endowment 50.000 

Buildings and grounds 310,373 

Value of library ir>,000 

Value of Chemical, Physical and Biologi- 
cal apparatus 10,000 

Furniture and Fixtures 15,000 

Total $983,794 

One of the purposes which 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 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." 

With a productive endowment of nearly $600,000, and build- 
ings and grounds worth $310,000, it rests on a foundation which 
assures its perpetuity. It has the support of a great religious 
denomination, yet it is not sectarion in its policy. It numbers 
among its patrons, representatives of all the Christian churches. 

Since 1912 Millsaps College has been a member of the As- 
sociation of Colleges and Secondary Schools of the Southern 
States, a distinction enjoyed by only three other institutions in 
this State. An impartial committee of the Association made ex- 
haustive 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 
imposed 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. 

During the Christian Education Campaign of 1921 Mr. W. 
S. F. Tatum, a generous layman of Hattiesburg, donated 


$100,000 to the College for the establishment of the Department 
of Religious Education. The Board of Trustees at their next 
annual meeting accepted the gift, giving the department the 
name of the generous donor. The department was organized at 
the opening of the session of 1921-'22, with Professor C. A. Bowen 
in charge. Provision was made in the deed of gift for the em- 
ployment of an Associate Professor and in June, 1922, Professor 
J. L. Ferguson was chosen to fill this chair. Millsaps College 
now has two professors giving their entire time to the work 
of this department. 








For admission to Millsaps College, the general conditions 
are as follows: 

1. Good Character — As attested by the certificate from the 
school last attended, or other valid proof. 

2. Adequate Preparation — As shown by the certificate of 
an accredited school, or an equivalent examination. 

Students are admitted to Millsaps College as: 

1. Full Freshman. 

2. Special Students. 

For admission as Full Freshmen, the candidate must offer 
fifteen units as specified below. English 3 units, Math. 2% 
units, History 2 units, Foreign Language 2 units in one Lan- 
guage. If the candidate elects Latin as one of the Foreign Lan- 
guages for his degree three units in that subject must be of- 
fered for entrance. 

For admission as a Special Student, the candidate must pre- 
sent adequate proofs of good character, and of the needful ma- 
turity and training. Such students must in all cases meet the 
specific entrance requirements, as prescribed for the courses 
elected by them. But it is expressly ordered that no special 
student shall be recognized as a candidate for any degree from 
Millsaps unless he shall have completed all entrance require- 
ments at least one year before the date of graduation. 



The unit in the following estimate (p. 28) means a subject 
of study pursued in an academy or high school through a session 
of nine months with recitations five times a week, an average 
of forty-five lesson minutes being devoted to each recitation. 


The subjects accepted for admission and their value in 
units are given in tabulated form on the next page. Fuller 
definitions of the units follow immediately after. The appli- 
cant for admission may enter either by certificate or by ex- 

For admission by certificate, the candidate should file with 
the Registrar of the College, not later than the opening day, a 
certificate of preparation, made out on a blank form furnished by 
the State High School Inspector to the principal of the high 
school. A copy of this certificate may be found in the back of 
this register. This certificate must come from some recognized 
Institution of collegiate rank, or an accredited* high school or 
academy. It must bear in all cases the signature of the head 
of the school, must specify the character and contents of each 
course offered for entrance credit; must give the length of time 
devoted to the course, and must give the candidate's grades in 
percentage. In the scientific courses two hours of laboratory 
instruction will be counted as the equivalent of one hour reci- 
tation. Certificate of preparation from private tutors will in 
no case be accepted. Students thus prepared must in all cases 
take the entrance examinations. 

For admission by examination, the candidate must present 
himself at the College in September, according to dates given 
in the Program of Entrance Examinations, if the examination 
has not been previously taken.

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 or- 
ganizing the courses of study. 


The requirement in English is that recommended by the 
National Conference on Uniform Entrance Requirements in 


Habits of correct, clear, and truthful expression. This part 
of the requirement calls for a carefully graded course in oral 
and written composition, and for instruction in the practical es- 
sentials of grammar, a study which ordinarily should be re- 
viewed in the secondary school. In all written work constant at- 
tention should be paid to spelling, punctuation, and good usage 
in general as distinguished from current errors. In all oral 
work there should be constant insistence upon the elimination 
of such elementary errors as personal speech-defects, foreign ac- 
cent, and obscure enunciation. 

Ability to read with intelligence and appreciation works of 
moderate difficulty; familiarity with a few masterpieces. This 
part of the requirement calls for a carefully graded course in 
literature. Two lists of books are provided from which a speci- 
fied number of units must be chosen for reading and study. The 
first contains selections appropriate for the earlier years in the 
secondary school. These should be carefully read, in some cases 
studied, with a measure of thoroughness appropriate for im- 
mature minds. The second contains selections for the closer 
study warranted in the later years. The progressive course 
formed from the two lists should be supplemented at least by 
home reading on the part of the pupil and by class-room read- 
ing on the part of pupils and instructor. It should be kept con- 
stantly in mind that the main purpose is to cultivate a fondness 
for good literature and to encourage the habit of reading with

An additional unit may be secured by students who have 
taken a full four-year course in a school (1) which offers an op- 
portunity for the study of English classics and composition be- 
yond the minimum requirements as interpreted in the foregoing 


statement; or (2) which offers an opportunity for the study of 
the History of English Literature or the History of American 
Literature, with extensive selections from representative au- 
thors and with additional work in composition. Only those 
schools which have exceptional facilities for teaching English 
should offer the fourth unit in that subject. 


However accurate in subject matter, no paper will be con- 
sidered satisfactory if seriously defective in punctuation, spell- 
ing, or other essentials of good usage. 

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 of 
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 
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 ques- 
tions designed to test such a knowledge and appreciation of 
Literature as may be gained by fulfilling the requirements de- 
fined under (a) Reading, above. The candidate will be required 
to submit a list of books read in preparation for the examination, 
certified by the principal of the school in which he was pre- 
pared; but this list will not be made the basis of detailed ques- 
tions. 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 
bei necessary to an understanding of the works and an appre- 
ciation of their salient qualities of style. General questions may 
also be asked concerning the lives of authors, their other 
works, and the periods of literary history to which they belong.

Credit will be given in history rather for the amount of time 
devoted to the subject and on the basis of the thoroughness with 
which the subject has been taught than on the amount of ground 
covered. Thorough preparation on two periods is of far more 
value than shallow preparation on a larger field. The work of 
the Freshman year will presuppose recent study of Medieval 
and Modern History. The student should be trained in practice 
of collateral reading, and should be accustomed to take notes 
to some extent on simple talks to the class. Accurate geo- 
graphical work connected with the text should have been done 

Questions as to collateral reading, note-taking, and his- 
torical geography will be asked of all students who enter, 
whether by examination or by certificate. 

Ancient History, Medieval and Modern History, English 
History, and American History and Government may be offered. 

History A. Ancient History. 

Including a brief outline of Eastern Nations; Grecian history 
with especial reference to culture; Roman history, with especial 
reference to its problems of government, and the rise of the 
Christian Church. (One unit.)

Millsaps College is named in honor of Major R. W. 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 concurrent 
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. 


Jackson, the capital of the State, and the seat of the Col- 
lege, is easily accessible by five lines 'of railway. Thirty pas- 
senger trains arrive and depart daily. The College is located 
in the northern part of the city, on a commanding elevation, with 
perfect 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 for 
the refinement and intelligence of its people. Its literary, social 
and religious advantages are superior. 

The College has an endowment of $583,000, of which $533,000 
is productive, and several partially endowed scholarships. The 
first scholastic session began September 29, 1892, and the Col- 
lege 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 immediate- 
ly adjoining our campus, has greatly enlarged our facilities. 


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 been renovated, 
and is in excellent order. The class of 1916 donated a fine 
photographic lens to the observatory, which adds materially to 
its equipment. 



Nfar 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 lull amount 
of the endowment. With the income from this endowment and 
the complete A. L». A. card catalogue, the College is able to 
offer library facilities that are not surpassed in the State. Dur- 
ing the present session fifty periodicals were received in the 
reading room and two hundred volumes were added to the 

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 \V. L. Nugent, besides 
many volumes from the libraries of ex-Chancellor Edward Mayes, 
Dr. A. F. Watkins and Major R. W. Millsaps. Dr. J. M. Burton, 
late Professor of Romance Languages, who died in France in 
the service of his country on October 5, 1918, generously left to 
the College his entire Romance Library. This has been ap- 
propriately labeled and shelved, and constitutes a valuable addi- 
tion to the books on Romance languages. The Martha A 
Turner Fund, founded by Mrs. J. R. Bingham, of Carrollton, 
Mississippi, is used for the purchase of books in English litera- 
ture. Through the generosity of Hon. W. S. F. Tatum a fine 
collection of books is being built up for the use of the Depart- 
ment of Religious Education. More than one hundred volumes 
have been added by him for each of the past two years. The 
students also have access to the State Library and the Jackson 
Public Library, which are unusually complete in many depart- 


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 Bible and 
to engage in singing and prayer. Students must attend religious 
worship at least once on Sunday in one of the churches of 



One of the most potent factors in the College for develop- 
ing the students into a broader life is the Young Men's Christian 
Association. Its policy and aim is to develop the three-fold 
nature of the students — the moral, intellectual, and spiritual. It 
is a well known fact that a student who develops himself intel- 
lectually, but neglects his spiritual nature, is in 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 members of the Faculty, or by some 
minister 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 this year were conducted by 
Rev. J. V. Bennett, Mississippi Conference Evangelist, and re- 
sulted in renewing 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 tin- 
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- 
tion. The President, elected by the members, appoints chair- 
men of 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. Afterward 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 ($1.25) 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. A student Volunteer Band is organized and 
active in preparation for mission work. Delegates are sent each 
year to the Volunteer Convention and the College is now repre- 
sented in the foreign field by a number of efficient missionaries. 

The Y. M. C. A. is back of every phase of College life, and 
it is expected that every student will identify himself with the 



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 
Societies, and contribute greatly to the improvement of their 


Students of Millsaps College, as a rule, arrange for their 
diving in one of two ways: 

1. There are eight small cottages, in which students can 
board themselves at reduced cost. These 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 $20.00 for the session and 
must be paid as follows: $10.00 on entrance, and $10.00 on Feb- 
ruary 1st. The boys in these cottages may take their meals in 
the college dormitory, or, if they prefer, may organize a coopera- 
tive club. Lights amount to very ilittle. Students living in the 
cottages furnish their rooms. Students wishing to engage a 
room in one of the cottages should write Rev. M. M. Black, at 
the College. 

2. In the new dormitory the expense is $25.00 or $26.00 per 
month including room, lights, steam heat, board, matron's ser- 
vices, and hospital facilities. Students may room in the cot- 
tages and take their meals at the college dormitory. There are 
Christian homes where students may get rooms without board. 
In such cases the students may get meals at the college dormi- 
tory or at private homes. 


Two of the new dormitories have been completed. Thus 
provision is made for the accommodation of students in build- 
ings entirely new, and provided with every convenience. The 
buildings are steam-heated, and are provided with shower baths. 
Every room is an outside room, and is well lighted. 


The great dining room is unusually fine, and is separated 
from the large kitchens by a commodious serving room. A 
feature which will be greatly appreciated by the students is a 
large common room where the boys may gather for a social 

Millsaps now is able to offer dormitories equal in all their 
appointments to the best to be found in any institution in this 
section. The work on a third dormitory will be pushed to com- 
pletion as soon as possible. 

Two students will be expected to occupy a room. The 
charge per month for each student will be $5.00 or $6.00, accord- 
ing to the location of the room. 

No change of rooms will be allowed except by permission 
of the President. 

Early reservation should be made if a student wishes to be 
assured of a room. A deposit of $5.00 must accompany a re- 
quest for a reservation. In the back of this Register is a slip 
which should be filled out and mailed as indicated. 


The friends of the late Rev. John A. Ellis, of the Mississippi 
Conference, and the Rev. J. H. Brooks, of North Mississippi 
Conference, have built two cottages for the accommodation of 
students. These Homes are named, respectively, the John A. 
Ellis and the J. H. Brooks Cottage. 


Millsaps College is a member of the Southern Intercollegi- 
ate Athletic Association, and takes part in all intercollegiate 
games. 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 contro\ 
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. 


The Athletic Director has supervision of all intercollegiate 
teams and conducts mass games and interolass leagues that 
enlist a large percentage of the students in some form of active 
participation in athletics. For those who report regularly two 
hours a week for exercise, under the instruction of the Athletic 
Director, a scholastic credit of one session-hour is granted. 


Courses of study are offered in two schools, the College 
and the School of Graduate Studies. 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. 


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 are sent at the close of each six weeks to the parent 
or guardian of each student. These reports give the number of 
unexcused absences from lectures, and indicate, as nearly as 
practicable, the nature of the progress made by him in his work 
at the College. 


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 students selected by 
the students. Experience has shown that under this Bystem DOl 
only has cheating been lessened, but that a spirit of honor and 
truth has been fostered which tends to include not only the ex- 
amination tests, but all relations between student and professor. 


Applicants seeking admission to the College for the first 
time should present themselves to the Registrar of the Coll' 
at his office in the main building at some time during the first 
two days of the session. In each instance a certificate of good 
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 admissions by cer- 
tificate or examination, previously stated, will be furnished with 
a card containing the courses which he proposes to pursue dur- 
ing the session. The card must then be carried to the Treas- 
urer, who will, after the College fees have been paid to him, 
sign that card. On payment of these fees the applicant will be 
admitted to classes. 


No student will 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 laboratory fees returned. 

Tuition fees will be charged by the half-year and must be 
paid not later than the second week of each period. No 
tuition fee will be returned unless a student is disqualified for 
work by severe illness for more than two months. 

Board is payable by the scholastic month (28 days) strictly 
in advance. When a student has paid his board a meal ticket 
will be issued to him by the Treasurer, which will be good until 
the next payment falls due. Payments far board will not be 
returned except for absence of not less than two weeks. 
Charges for board do not include the Christmas holidays, dur- 
ing which period meals will not be served in the dining hall. 


Students will not be admitted to the dining hall without meal 
tickets after the Monday fallowing the opening of the session. 

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 ilater 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. 


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. 


The Academic year begins on the morning of the third 
Wednesday 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 from the College is permitted only upon the writ- 
ten leave of the President, obtained in every case in advance. 
But leave 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. 


Absences of athletic teams and other student organizations is 
provided for by Faculty regulations. 

Absence from any classes is not excused exempt for pro- 
longed 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 un- 
pledged paper is counted as a total failure in the examination In 
which it occurs. A student whose absence from examination is 
excused is admitted to the special examination ordered by the 

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 
question, and by the faithful performance of his work as indi- 
cated 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 
examinations. The grade for passing in any course is 70 per 


A student who attains in any course an examination grade 
for the term not below 50 per cent, and whose average is below 
70 per cent, is admitted by the Faculty to a special examination 
at a time set by the Faculty. 


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. 


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 
require from the student regular and diligent application to his 
studies, and 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. 


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 


Parents desiring to settle all College bills, such as board, 
etc., through the Treasurer may do so by simply sending check 
to Rev. M. M. Black, Treasurer, and specifying what the en- 
closure is intended to cover. 


For a complete statement of fees and expenses see next 

The cost of living is fully explained under "Boarding Fa- 
cilities," page 50. A temporary increase in board has been 
made to meet the present conditions. 

Each student should bring with him four sheets for a double 
bed, blankets, or quilts, a pillow with cases, and six towels.

The Academic Schools comprise the Departments of Lan- 
guages, Mathematics. Science, History, Socia 1 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 department of Latin and Greek. This course presupposes 
two years of preparatory work in Greek or Modern Languages 
and 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 applicant 
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 at- 


tainment of either degree one year of residence at Millsaps 
College is required after the attainment of the Bachelor's de- 
gree, and also satisfatory completion of advanced work to the 
amount of fifteen hours. This work must he taken in not more 
than three different subjects; a major subject, in which a mini- 
mum 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 
additiou 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- 
ferred for the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Sci- 
ence is given in the pages following this announcement. 

Sixty-four year-hours are required for graduation both for 
the B.A. and B.S. degrees. Specific courses are prescribed in 
the Freshman and the Sophomore classes, including alternative 
courses offered in ancient and modern languages. Courses in 
the Junior and Senior classes are partially prescribed and par- 
tially elective, from eight to twelve hours of electives being 
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. 

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."

The rooms which are given up to the study of this subject 
are modern, both in size and convenience, and occupy the whole 
lower f!oor of Webster Science Hall. 

The work in this department includes one year of Chemistry 
required of candidates for both the B. A. and the B. S. degrees, 
and an additional year required of B. S. students, besides other 
courses open to all Juniors and Seniors. 

The subjects are taught by recitations and lectures and 
work which each student must perform in the laboratory. The 
laboratories are 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 inspection, 
but also train his hand to be careful to the smallest detail, and 
the eye observant to the slightest phenomenon, and habits of 
neatness, skill and economy. Each student will be expected to 
keep accurate notes. 


Entrance credits for at least one unit in Natural Science is 
required for admission to this department, and applicants should 
have completed an elementary course in Chemistry. 
1. Inorganic Chemistry. 

(a) The first term will be devoted to a careful study of funda- 
mental principles and laws, the occurrence, properties, prep- 
aration and uses of a number of the common elements and 
compounds, and chemical calculations. 

(b) During the second term the study of non-metals will be com- 
pleted and a few weeks devoted to the alkali and alkali- 
earth metals. Special attention will be given to valence 
and the ionization theory. 

(c) The work of the third term will include a study of metals 
with special reference to commercial uses and to qualita- 
tive analysis, and an elementary course in Organic Chem- 

This course is designed to give the student a thorough 
working knowledge of general chemistry, and is a prescribed 
study of the Sophomore year for all degrees, and is a pre- 
requisite to either of the other courses in chemistry.

aration of a few drugs and coal-tar dyes. A portion of 
this course may be included in the third term of course 6. 
Finally, it should be said that in the chemical laboratory 
text-books will be dispensed with as far as possible. The stu- 
dent will be taught to feel that the substances and apparatus 
around him are his alphabet. The teacher is constantly on 
hand to question and suggest, and in other ways to stimulate 

Library copies of Watt's Revised Dictionary, Thorp's Ap- 
plied Chemistry, Roscoe and Schorlemmer's Treatise, Allen's 
Commercial Organic Analysis, Journals of the American Chemi- 
cal Society, and other works, are on hand for reference. In 
both Junior and Senior courses some library work will be re- 
quired outside the regular schedule.

occupied by this department. The Museum contains about 300 
minerals collected from various parts of the world, 200 speci- 
mens of rock presented by the United States Geological Survey, 
a fine cabinet of 300 minerals and rocks presented by Goucher 
College, and a fine collection of Mississippi rocks and fossils, all 
thoroughly indexed. The excellence of the latter is yearly in- 
creased by donations from friends of the College, and a collec- 
tion made by the professor and class on annual trips. 


1. (a) Lithologic and Physiographic Geology. 

This includes a study of mineral crystalline forms, chemical 
composition, occurrence, and uses, with a description of the

processes. First term. 
(b) Dynamic Gealogy. 

This portion of the course embraces the study of the me- 
chanical and chemical effects of the atmosphere, water, 
heat, and of life. Special attention will be given to some 


phase of the subject, as the work of glaciers, and of vol- 
canoes. Second term, 
(c) Historical Geology. 

In addition to the general historical geology, some attention 
will be given to economic products and to paleontology. 
Third term. 

The College museum and the private museum of the head 
of the department afford minerals and fossils for class study. 

Several geological expeditions regularly made in the fall 
and spring to localities easily accessible to Jackson, give the 
class a practical conception of this kind of surveying. The 
College is fortunate in being located in the midst of a region 
that is quite varied in geological character. Occasionally the 
faculty grants a week's leave of absence on trips to more dis- 
tant parts. In the last month of the course special attention 
will be given to the Geology of Mississippi.

The regular work in German begins with Course I, but for 
the benefit of those students who have not been able to make 
the required preparation in this subject, a preparatory course 
(Course A) is offered. This course, if taken under the super- 
vision of the College and not used as an entrance unit, may be 
used as Junior or Senior elective. When thus used it counts 
two hours toward graduation. But all classes in German meet 
three times a week, unless otherwise specified. For entrance, 
Course I will count as two units, provided the student makes a 
grade of not less than 80. 

For graduation, college work in German, French, or 
Spanish may be substituted for Greek in the B.A. course. In 
the B.S. course, modern languages may be substituted for 
Latin, classes in the three languages offered being inter- 
changeable, hour for hour. But a student should consult 
the professors in charge before so planning his course 
as to include more than two modern languages. Any course 
not otherwise counted may be used as an elective.

In the courses in History two things will be kept in view. 
Students will be required to acquaint themselves with the sig- 
nificant facts in the development of the nations studied, and 
to learn why these facts are considered significant. As far as 
possible, the causal connection between historical events will 
be indicated, emphasis will be laid on the idea that history is 
a record of the continuous development of the human race, 
whose growing self-consciousness manifests itself in the pro- 
gressive organization of its moral and intellectual ideals into 
laws and customs. 

In order to understand each people or nation studied, ac- 
count will be taken of its literature, its religious and social in- 
stitutions, its economic conditions, and the organization of its 

Entrance credits for the two units in History will be re- 
quired for entrance to this department. One of these must be

The requirements in physical work are designed to cover 
the whole school year at the rate of two hours a week for each 
Freshman. Although this work is compulsory, considerable free- 
dom in selection is offered. The sole aim is to create a healthy 
desire to engage in some form of recreation, under proper super- 
vision, so as to benefit the student morally, mentally, and physi- 


cally. This exercise takes the form of competitive games in 
order to arouse the proper interest, develop team work, teach 
initiative, strengthen the morale, teach true sportsmanship, and 
create a life-long interest in some form of sport which will bene- 
fit the student in after life. An idea is also gained as to the 
natural ability of each man and quite frequently students dis- 
cover that they are really better in athletics than they thought 
they were and are encouraged to try for the varsity teams. 


The courses in this department consist of two years of 
Physics and two years of Astronomy. The department occupies 
a part of the second floor of Webster Science Hall. The labora- 
tory is provided with all the essentials for carrying on the work 
in the various courses and with balopticon and moving picture 
machines as well as automatic balopticon for lecture purposes. 

The work in Astronomy is carried on both in Webster 
Science Hall and in the James Observatory. The department is 
equipped with globes, tellurian, gyroscopes, and spectrometer 
for laboratory work. 

The Observatory occupies a commanding position on the 
north campus and is equipped with a six-inch equatorial with 
mounting by Warner and Swazey and optical parts by Brashear. 
The other equipment consists of a siderial chronometer, a fine 
clock, filar micrometer, portrait lens for photography, and a 
high grade surveyor's transit. 

The observatory is open to visitors one night each week 
when the weather permits.

(W. S. F. Tatum Foundation.) 

The courses offered in this department embody the ideals 
of Southern Methodism in so far as these are related to the 
matter of a proper curriculum for religious education depart- 
ments in the colleges of the church. The aim is to lay the 
foundation for vocational workers in this field. The program 
now being formulated proposes to make heavy demands upon the 
trained services of the laity. For this reason the desire is to 
emphasize the fact that these courses are not for ministerial 
students only. 

On completion of twelve of the nineteen session hours of- 
fered in this department the General Sunday School Board of 


the M. E. Church, South, through its Department of Teacher 
Training in cooperation with the faculty of the college, will 
award a certificate in Religious Education. Of the courses listed 
below, Bible 1 and 2 and Religious Kducation la, lb, lc, 2a, 2b 
2c, 3a compose ten session hours counted as required work on 
the certificate in Religious Education. The two remaining ses- 
sion hours are elective and may be taken from Bible 3a, 3b, 3c 
or Religious Education 3c, 4a, 4b. 

For purposes of convenience the work offered in Bible is 
put under a separate head from the other courses.

This department offers courses in French and Spanish. The 

regular work in French begins with Course I, but for the benefit 

of those who have not been able to fulfill the entrance require- 


ments in this subject before entering college, a preparatory 
course (Course A) is offered. This course, when taken under 
the supervision of the College, and not counted as an entrance 
unit, may be used as a two hour Junior or Senior elective. 
Classes meet three hours a week. For entrance Course I will 
count as two units, provided the student makes a grade of not 
less than 80. 

For graduation six hours of college work in French or Ger- 
man or Spanish are accepted as a substitute for Greek in the 
B.A. course. In the B.S. course six hours of French, Spanish, 
or German are required, and six additional hours may be sub- 
stituted for Latin, classes in these three languages being inter- 
changeable, hour for hour. A student should, however, consult 
the professors in charge before planning to take more than two 
modern languages. Any course, not already counted, may be 
used as a Junior or Senior elective.

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 finan- 
cial, political, and social life and institutions.

dwelling particularly upon the laws governing the production and 
consumption of wealth, business organization, wages and labor,

course is concluded with a study of social products, and so- 
ciological principles. Three hours, second term.

will be studied and some attention will be given to the self- 
governing dominions of the British Empire.

It is the purpose of the Extension Department as far as 
possible to make the resources of the college available for 
people in their homes. Many who aspire to self-culture have 
not the means or the inclination to come to college for it. To 
such the Extension Department holds out a helping hand. 

The college has a valuable equipment of books, buildings, 
and trained instructors. It is the privilege of the people to call 
for such service as the college can render; it is the duty and 
privilege of the college to devise ways and means for placing its 
service at the disposal of the people. 

Library Extension Service. — One of the most effective ways 
in which we are serving the ministers of Mississippi is in placing 

♦Not open to Freshmen or Sophomores. 


the books of our library subject to their call. We not only do 
this free of charge but we pay postage one way on any book 
that may be ordered from us. Books may be kept out for the 
period of one month. 


Debates and Public Speaking. — The Extension Department 
provides assistance to high school pupils in the selection of 
speeches and in the preparation of debates. 

Lectures and Commencement Orators. — Members of the Col- 
lege faculty are available for lectures and public speeches on 
commencement, anniversaries, and other public occasions. 

Judges and Referees for High School Contests. — On short 
notice the Extension Department can provide properly qualified 
judges and referees for all high school contests, athletic and 


Lecturers and Advice. — Members of the College faculty from 
time to time lecture before women's clubs. We are in position 
to provide assistance in the planning and preparation of club

The Summer School of Millsaps College for 1923 will open on 
June 11th, and will continue for nine weeks. 

The Summer School will be conducted for teachers who de- 
sire work in High School subjects and College students. High 
School students who have a little work to make up for entrance 
will find opportunity here to do so. Teachers may secure re- 
newal of license by attendance for six weeks. 

In opening its doors to the teachers of the State, Millsaps 
College feels that it is serving a long felt need in that some pro- 
vision should be made at the capital of the state for teachers 
to spend a few weeks during their vacation and at the same 
time take such work as they may desire. 

All the advantages of the other summer schools will be af- 
forded in the way of renewal and extension of license, and lec- 
tures provided by the State Department of Education. 

College graduates who lack the required number of hours in 
Education will find, here, an opportunity to make up some of 
those hours. Students with two years of College training may, 
with six hours of Education, be granted a state license without 
examination by the State Board of Examiners. 

The amount of work that a student may take will be limited 
to two subjects with a total credit of five hours. 

There will be a series of lectures by special lecturers from 
time to time. Announcement will be made beforehand. 

The tuition fee will be $25.00 and a matriculation fee of 
$3.50 will be charged. Board will be $25.00 or $26.00 per month, 
or at the rate of $8.00 per week. For a period of less than a 
week the rate will be $1.50 per day. Those who expect to live 
on the campus will bring with them a pillow, bed-linen, towels 
and toilet articles. The dormitories and dining hall will be open 


on the evening of June 11th. Fees and board payable in advance. 

Those expecting to enter the Summer School should make 
reservation by sending to the director a deposit of $5.00. 

The following courses will be offered: 
Chemistry 1 Secondary Education 

Chemistry 2 English 2
