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, aaid 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 Sta>te and of the United States, subject 
however, 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

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 successors are chosen, 
as hereinafter mentioned. Upon the death, resignation or re- 
moval of said Galloway, or his permanent physical disability to

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- 
sona 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

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 theretor, and 
erect thereon such buildings, dormitories, and halls as they may 
think expedient and proper to subserve the purposes of their or-

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 a campus for 
said College, and the buildings, dormitories and halls thereon

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 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 minis- 
ters 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 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 raising the 
sum designated in the original proposition progressed, and 
$25,000 had been collected, Major Millsaps in the year 1890 paid 
$25,000 into the College treasury. 

In December, 1892, the Rev. J. W. Chambers was appointed 
agent for the College, and on December 30, 1893, he reported that 
the full amount had been collected to meet the terms of Major 
Millsaps' 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 1892 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., (1912-1923.) 

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 bet- 
ter 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 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. \Y. Lewis, of the North Mississippi Conference was made 
financial agent of the College to collect this sum. In 1910 $3L\- 
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 $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 
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 $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 revenue pro- 
ducing property $ 651,657.15 

Buildings and grounds 360,373.78 

Value of library 15,000 

Value of Chemical, Physical and Biological ap- 
paratus 15,000 

Furniture and Fixtures 15,000 

Total ..$1,057,030.93 

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 over $600,000, and build- 
ings and grounds worth $360,000, 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 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 w T as made in the deed of gifts for the em- 
ployment of an Associate Professor. This position is now filled 
by Professor L. W. Summers. Millsaps College now has two 
professors giving their entire time to the work of this depart- 







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. 2V 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 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 course two hours of labora-tory 
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 course 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 conta-ins 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 
be 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 prac- 
tice of collateral reading, and should be accustomed to take 
notes to some extent on simple talks to the class. Accurate 
geographical work connected with the text should have been 
done habitually. 

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.)

mental chemistry. A course accomplishing the preparation 
above outlined will require an amount of time equivalent to 
three hours for one school year, exclusive of laboratory work. 
(One unit.) 

Science B. Physics. 

For entrance in this subject the student should have passed 
a satisfactory examination on some modern High School Physics. 
This work should be the equivalent of five recitations per week 
for one year. (One unit.) 

*Note — Two hours laboratory work equals one unit-hour of 


Science C. Botany. 

The preparation in this subject should include a study of 
the following divisions: Anatomy and Morphology, Physiology, 
Ecology, the Natural History of the Plant Groups, and Classifi- 
cation. Much time should be given to laboratory work. The 
experiments with all records, should be kept in a permanent 
note book. (One unit.) 

Science D. Zoology. 

The preparation in this subject should include a careful 
study of the following divisions of the subject. General Life 
History and Economic Relations of the Animals of Mississippi, 
Classification into Phyla, with a discussion of the characteristics

The following schools as at present organized are recognized 
as affiliated high schools so long as their efficiency is approved 
by the faculty of the college. Their graduates are admitted on 
certificate without examination. (As to character of certificate, 
see page 22.) The twenty-two schools indicated with an asterisk 
have been accredited by the Association of Colleges of the South- 
ern States.

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 
a-ction 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 $652,000, and several par- 
tially endowed scholarships. The first scholastic session began 
September 29, 1892, and the College has had remarkable pros- 
perity from the beginning. The generous founder, Major Mill- 
saps, 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. 


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. 



Near the close of the session of 1905-1906, Mr. Andrew Car- 
negie offered to give $15,000 for a library building if the trustees 
would supply an endowment of equal amount. Major Millsaps 
added to his many contributions by giving the full amount of 
the endowment. 

The foundations of this handsome building have unfortunate- 
ly given away so that it became necessary to rebuild the struc- 
ture, and the Carnegie Corporation have generously appropriated 
$50,000.00 for this purpose. Plans for this building are now 
being drawn. When completed it will give the College an ade- 
quate and modern Library building. The books are catalogued 
fully by the A. L. A. system and are in charge of Mrs. M. B. 
Clark, a trained and experienced librarian. 

From time to time additions have been made from the en- 
dowment funds and from the Library fees. 

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. F. Waikins 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 C'a>rrollton, Mississippi, 
is used for the purchase of books in English literature. Through 
the generosity of Hon. W. S. F. Tatum a fine collection of books 
is being built up for the use of the Department of Religious 
Education. More than one hundred volumes have been added 
by him for each of the pa<st three years. The students also 
have access to the State Library and the Jackson Public Library, 
which are unusually complete in many departments. 



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 in- 
tellectually, 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 mould char- 
acter 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 this year were conducted hy 
Rev. R. H. Bennett, and resulted in renewing enthusiasm and in 
giving great stimulus to Association work. 

The Association sends yearly a delegation to the Southern 
Student's Conference at Blue Ridge, North Carolina. Since the 
ten days of the Convention are assiduously devoted to discussing 
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 all meet- 
ings, and secure good attendance. The Membership Committee 
meets all new students as they arrive, and gives them any in- 
formation desired concerning College, boarding facilities, etc. 
Afterward this committee calls on each student and urges him to 
become a member of the Association. The Reception Com- 
mittee has charge of College Night, a-nd any other entertainment 
that the Association 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 getting employment for their spare time. The City 
Mission Committee has charge of work in different parts of the 
city. The Devotional Committee provides leaders, and the 
Music Committee, whose Chairman is the Treasurer of the 
Association, collects 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 
a-nd active in preparation for mission work. Delegates are sent 


each year to the Volunteer Convention and the College is now 
represented in the foreign Held by a number of efficient mis

Two large halls ha-ve 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, a-rrange for their 
living in one of two ways: 

1. There are eight small cottages, in which students can 
room at reduced cost. These cottages are provided with the 
same furniture provided for dormitory rooms. The cottages 
a>re admirably 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 $25.00 for the 
session and must be paid as follows: $12.50 on entrance, and 
$12.50 on February 1st. The boys in these cottages may take 

on Is in the college dormitory. Lights amount to very 
little. Students wishing to engage a room in one of the cot- 
tages should write Mr. V. B. Hathorn, at the College. 

2. In the new dormitory the expense will be approximately 
$23.00 or $24.00 per month including room, lights, steam heat, 
board, matron's services, and hospital facilities. The dining 
room is conducted on the cooperative plan. During 1923-24 the 
cost amounted to approximately $19.00 per month. Students 
may room in the cottages 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 dormitory 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 year for each student will be $45.00 to $54.00, ac- 
cording 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 $10.00 must accompany a re- 
quest for a reservation. 


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 J. H. Brooks Cottage. 


Millsaps College is a member of the Southern Intercol- 
legiate 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 student organ- 
ization, whose object is to promote this class of physical exer- 


cise. The faculty exon ises a general advisory control, en- 
deavoring 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 Intercollegl 
teams and conducts mass and interclass 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. 


The various departments are under the direction of pro : 
fessors who are responsible for the systems and methods pur- 

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 par- 
ent 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 stu- 
dent 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 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 examination tests, but all relations between student and 


Applicants seeking admission to the College for the first 
time should present themselves to the Registrar of the College 
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 admission by cer- 
tificate or examination will be furnished with a card containing 
the courses offered, from which he may select those which he 
proposes to pursue during the session. The card must then be 
carried to the Treasurer, 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 for board will not be 
returned except for absence of not less than two weeks. Charges 
for board do not include the Christmas holidays, during 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 following the opening of the- 

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 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 require- 
ments stated in the preceding 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, and will be required to 
pay a special fee of $3.00. 


The Academic year begins on the morning of the third 
Wednesday of September and continues for thirty-six weeks. 
Thanksgiving Day is a holida-y, and there is a Christmas recess 
beginning on the evening of the nineteenth 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 leave 
or 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 except for sickness 
or like providential cause. Eut absences, whether excused or 
not, from one-fourth or more of the recitation periods in any term 
will result in proportionate decrease of credits allowed. 

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 examina- 
tion is excused 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 regular- 
ity of attendance of the student upon 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, tbe 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 cent. 


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 examina- 
tion 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 habit- 
ual 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 its 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 for- 

Visiting the City at Night. 

Students who are delinquent in their studies are forbidden 
to visit the town, or other place away from the College, at night, 
without permission from the President. 



Parents desiring to settle all College bills, such as board, 
etc., through the Treasurer may do so by simply sending check 
to Mr. V. B. Hathorn, 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 51. 

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

Free tuition. 

Children of itinerant preachers of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, South, or of superannuated or active ministers of any 
Christian denomination, and young men preparing for the minis- 
try may receive tuition free in the academic department, but 
are expected to pay all other fees. Any student, wishing ex- 
emption from the payment of the tuition fee upon this ground, 
v/ill be required to present a certificate from the Quarterly Con- 
ference or some other ecclesiastical body showing that he is 
recognized by his Church as a student preparing for the min-

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 cf 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. 

E.A. Degree. 

The Bachelor of Arts Course offers special instruction in 
the department of Latin and Greek. 

E.S. Degree. 

The Bachelor of Science Course offers special work in 
Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. 

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 satisfactory completion of advanced work to the 
amount of fifteen hours. This work must be 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 
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 work. 

A full outline of the required and the elective studies of- 
fered 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, but a total of 6 grade points is requisite 
for advancement from one class to the next higher class, and for 
graduation a total of 27 grade points is required. The comple- 
tion 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 
completion 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".

It is believed that the mastery of these highly inflected lan- 
guages 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 lan- 
guage is required, both in the study of inflection and syntax 
and in translation. This drill affords a most rigorous exer- 
cise in correct scientific method and produces habits and 
reflexes 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. 




Course A. Cicero and Ovid. Selections from Cicero's Ora- 
tions and Ovid's Metamorphoses. Comprehensive reviews of

The rooms which are given up to the study of this subject 
are modern, both in size and convenience, and occupy the whole 
lower floor 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. In all courses attention will be given to 
chemical calculations, and the use of reference books and perio- 
dicals will be encouraged. 

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.

A portion of the second floor of Webster Science Hall is 
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 
kind and arrangement of rock masses. Folios and topo- 


graphical sheets of the U. S. Geological Survey will be used 
in connection with a study of physiographic features and 
processes. First term. 

(b) Dynamic Geology. 

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 1, 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, and 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 racial composition, its 
religious and social institutions, its economic conditions, and the 
organization of its government. 

Entrance credits for the two units in History will be re- 
quired for entrance to this department. One of these must be 
in Medieval and Modern European History, listed as "History 
B" in the "Entrance Requirements" printed in this Register. 

1a, lb, 1c. History of Mediaeval and Modern Europe. 
Three hours a week. Required of all Freshmen. 

In this course especial stress will be laid on Modern His- 
tory and present-day problems. An attempt will be made to 
show how the problems and ideals of modern nations grew out 
of their past history, and how they are affected by international 
relations. This will be done as a- preparation for the study of 
the governmental institutions of our own and other countries 
and as the basis of a correct understanding of the questions 
now engaging civilized nations. 

Text-Books — History of Western Europe (Robinson), Mod- 
ern Europe (Hazen), Historical Atlas (Shepherd).

scope and requiring much collateral reading will be given as al- 
ternative to the course in British History. 


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 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. 

Entrance credit for at least one Carnegie unit in Natural 
Science is required for admission to this department, also a 
knowledge of Mathematics through Plane Trigonometry.

The courses offered in this department embody the ideals of 
Southern Methodism in as far as these are related to the matter 
of a proper curriculum for religious education departments in 
the colleges of the church. The aim is to train avocational work- 
ers in this field as well as to offer prevocational courses. The 
program now being formulated by the Church proposes to make 
heavy demands upon the trained services of the laity. For 
this reason the fact is emphasized that these courses are not 
for ministerial students only. 

On completion of twelve session hours offered in this depart- 
ment, the General Sunday School Board of the M. E. Church 
South, through its Department of Teacher Training in coopera-

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.

It is the purpose of the Extension Department as far as 
possible to make the resources of the college available for 

*Not open to Freshmen or Sophomores. 


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 
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 high school contests, athletic and 


Lectures 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 1924 will open 
on June 10th, and will continue for nine weeks. 

The Summer School will be conducted for teachers who de- 
sire work in High School and College subjects and College 
students. High School students who have a little work to 
make up for entrance will find opportunity here to do so. One 
or two units may be made. Teachers may secure renewal 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 
provision 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. Science fee, $10.00. Those who 
expect to live on the campus will bring with them a pillow, 
bed-linen, towels and toilet articles. The dormitories and din- 


ing hall will be open on the evening of June 9th. Fees and 
boa-rd 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: 

Education, Child Psychology Plane Geometry 

Education, High School Methods Mathematics 1, Solid Geome- 

Education, Principles of Second- try, College Algebra, Trigo- 

ary Education nometry.

ijlfllLLSAPS College mourns her loss in the death 
of Bishop William Belton Murrah who departed 
this life on March 5th, 1925. 

He was the first President of Millsaps College, 
and Millsaps was under his guidance for nineteen 
years. Since his election to the episcopacy in 1910 
he has been President of the Board of Trustees, and 
the College has had the inestimable advantage of his 
unfailing interest and his wise counsel. 

The standards of Millsaps College were originally 
set by Bishop Murrah. Into the institution and the 
alumni of the first eighteen years of its life were 
breathed something of his solidity and dignity of 
character, his calm and patient spirit, his sound and 
deliberate habits of thought, his tolerant view of the 
opinions of those who differed with him, and his 
deep piety. 

While Millsaps College mourns his loss she is 
deeply thankful for his great and fine influence, and 
she will seek to incarnate in her sons the essence 
of his noble life.
