HISTORY 



The Charter of Millsaps College which was granted Feb- 
ruary 21, 1890 reads as follows: 

AN ACT to incorporate Millsaps College. 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of 
Mississippi, That Thomas J. Wheat, Samuel M. Thames, Thomas 
J. Newell and Rufus M. Standifer, of the North Mississippi Con- 
ference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and Garvin D. 
Shands, David L. Sweatman, James B. Streater, and John Trice, 
lay members of said church within bounds of said 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 impleaded, contract and be contracted 
with, and have a common seal and break the same at pleasure, and 
may accept donations of real and personal property for the benefit 
of the College hereafter to be established by them, and contributions 
of money or negotiable securities of every kind in aid of the en- 
dowment of such College; and may confer degrees and give certifi- 
cates of scholarships and make by-laws for the government of said 
College and its affairs, as well as for their government, and do and 
perform all other acts for the benefit of said institution and the 
promotion of its welfare that are not repugnant to the Constitu- 
tion and laws of this State and 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. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 17 

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 herein- 
after mentioned. Upon the death, resignation or removal of said 
Galloway, or his permanent physical disability to discharge the 
duties of his office, the said Trustees may elect their President 
and prescribe his duties, powers and term of office. 

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 Conferences. 

Sec. 4. That the said Trustees, when organized as herein- 
before directed, shall be known by the corporate name set out in 
the first section of this Act, and all money, promissory notes and 
evidence of debt heretofore collected under the direction of said 
Conferences for said College shall be turned over to and receipted 
for by them in their said corporate name, and the payee of all 
such notes and evidences of debt shall endorse and assign the same 
to the corporation herein provided for, which shall thereafter be 
vested with the full legal title thereto, and authorized to sue for 
and collect the same. 

The said corporation shall have the power to select any ap- 
propriate town, city, or other place in this State at which to es- 
tablish 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. 



18 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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 
erected, and the endowment fund contributed to said College 
shall be exempt from all State, County and Municipal taxation 
so long as the said College shall be kept open and maintained for 
the purpose contemplated by this Act, and no longer. 

Sec. 6. That the cost of education shall, as far as practi- 
cable, be reduced by said corporation to the lowest point con- 
sistent with the efficient operation of said College, and to this 
end reports shall be made to the said Conferences from year to 
year, and their advice in that behalf taken, and every 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. Watkins, 
Major R. W. Millsaps, Col. W. L. Nugent, and Dr. Luther Sexton. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 1ft 

On December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi Conference met 
at Starkv'ille, Mississippi, Bishop C. B. Galloway presiding. The 
Rev. T. L. Mellen appeared and reported the action taken by the 
Mississippi Conference. The following transcript from the North 
Mississippi Conference Journal gives the response made by that 
body: 

"Resolved, 1. That a College for the education of 
boys and young men should be established in the State 
of Mississippi under the auspices of the Methodist Episco- 
pal 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 distinguised leader, the most 
gratifying progress was reported from time to time. The report 
submitted to the Conferences by the committee in December, 
1889, refers to the movement in the following language: 

"The canvass, on account of the numerous neces- 
sitated absences of Bishop Galloway from the State, could 



20 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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 profoundly 
convinced that the College is an absolute necessity." 

The report continues: 

"So high is the appreciation of the value of the pro- 
posed institution, that numerous towns in the State have 
entered into earnest competition to secure the location 
of the college within the limits of their respective borders, 
offering from S 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 col- 
lected, 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 inaugurated, the 
Church and State owe him a large debt of gratitude." 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 21 

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: 

BISHOP CHARLES B. GALLOWAY, President 

REV. W. C. BLACK, D. D. REV. S. M. THAMES 

REV. T. L. MELLEN REV. T. J. NEWELL 

REV. A. F. WATKINS REV. C. G. ANDREWS, D. D. 

REV. R. M. STANDIFER HON. G. D. SHANDS 

MAJ. R. W. MILLSAPS CAPT. D. L. SWEATMAN 

COL. W. L. NUGENT MR. J. B. STREATER 

DR. LUTHER SE XTON MR. JOHN TRICE 

HON. M. M. EVANS REV. W. W. WHEAT, D. D. 

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 build- 
ings, and to this sum Major Millsaps added $15,000. Plans for a 
commodious main building were immediately procured, grounds 
were purchased, and in a comparatively short time buildings were 
in process of erection. 



22 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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 thirteen 
departments. 

The Presidents of the College have been Rev. W. B. Murrah, 
later Bishop Murrah (1892-1910), Professor D. C. Hull (1910-1912), 
and Rev. A. P. Watkins, D. D., (1912-1923), and D. M. Key, Ph.D., 
(1924—). 

The unusual facilities for conducting a Law School in Jackson 
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 institution, 
took active control of the new school. In 1918 it was discontinued. 

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. 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. 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 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 23 

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 S5,000. Major 
Millsaps, with characteristic generosity, contributed the remain- 
ing 837,720.90. Thus the endowment of the College was increased 
by $100,000. 

At the Commencement of 1913 Major Millsaps gave to the 
College property on Capitol street, Jackson, valued at $150,000. 
This is the largest single gift to the College, 

The dormitory of the Preparatory School was destroyed by 
fire in 1913, but it was promptly rebuilt and made more valuable 
by alterations which also improved greatly the appearance of 
the structure. A more disastrous fire destroyed the main build- 
ing in 1914. But within a few months the old structure had been 
replaced by a far more commodious and imposing administration 
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 Col- 
lege the proceeds of the life insurance of his son, amounting to 
$10,000. 

Since the foundation of the old library had so given way as to 
make the building unsafe, the Carnegie Library Board agreed in 
1923 to rebuild the Library on a new site, and to provide a larger 
one more nearly adequate to the needs of the college, which had 
grown greatly since the original Library was built. So a new 
Library costing $60,000.00 will be available in 1925-1926. 



24 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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 $ 697,000.00 

Unproductive endowment (Land) 50,000.00 

Building and grounds 310,373.00 

Value of library 15,000.00 

Value of Chemical, Physical, and Biological ap- 
paratus 15,000.00 

Furniture and fixtures 15,000.00 



Total $1,102,373.00 

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 exhaustive 
inquiry into the financial resources of the institution, its courses, 
the training of its instructors, and the character of its work, and 
unanimously recommended it for membership. This inquiry ex- 
tended 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. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 25 

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 gifts for the employment of an Associate 
Professor. This position is now filled by Professor J. T. Hooker. 
Millsaps College now has two professors giving their entire time to 
the work of this department.

DEFINITIONS OF UNITS. 

The following definitions of the units in the requirements 
for entrance are designed on the one hand to guide the student 
in his preparation for the entrance examinations, and on the other 
to govern the high school principal and teacher in organizing the 
course of study. 

ENGLISH. 

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

DEFINITION OF THE REQUIREMENT FOR I923-I925. 

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 essentials 
of grammar, a study which ordinarily should be reviewed in the 
secondary school. In all written work constant attention should 
be paid to spelling, punctuation, and good usage in general as dis- 
tinguished from current errors. In all oral work there should be 
constant insistence upon the elimination of such elementary errors 
as personal speech-defects, foreign accent, 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 litera- 
ture. Two lists of books are provided from which a specified 
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 immature minds. The 
second contains selections for the closer study warranted in the 
later years. The progressive course formed from the two lists 
shotild be supplemented at least by home reading on the part of 
the pupil and by class-room reading on the part of pupils and in- 
structor. It should be kept constantly in mind that the main 
purpose is to cultivate a fondness for good literature and to en- 
courage the habit of reading with discrimination.

34 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

A FOURTH UNIT IN ENGLISH 

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 authors 
and with additional work in composition. Only those schools 
which have exceptional facilities for teaching English should offer 
the fourth unit in that subject. 

Examinations. 

However accurate in subject matter, no paper will be con- 
sidered satisfactory if seriously defective in punctuation, spelling, 
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 Litera- 
ture as may be gained by fulfilling the requirements defined 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 prepared; but this list 
will not be made the basis of detailed questions. B, A test on the 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 35 

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 under- 
standing of the works and an appreciation 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.

HISTORY. 

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 geographical work 
connected with the text should have been done habitually. 

Questions as to collateral reading, note-taking, and historical 
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.)

50 MIL.LSAPS COLLEGE 

ANNOUNCEMENTS 

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 Episco- 
pal Church, South and was organized by the concurrent action of 
the Mississippi and North Mississippi Conferences. It is not 
sectarian, however, but numbers among its patrons members of all 
the Christian denominations. 

LOCATION. 

Jackson, the capital of the State, and the seat of the College, 
is easily accessible by five lines of railway. Thirty passenger trains 
arrive and depart daily. The College is located in the northern 
part of the city on a commanding elevation, with 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 intel- 
ligence of its people. Its literary, social and religious advantages 
are superior. 

The College has an endowment, and several partially endowed 
scholarships. The first scholastic session began September 29, 1892, 
and the College has had remarkable prosperity from the beginning. 
The generous founder. Major Millsaps, by the gift of the Webster 
Science Hall, the Jackson College property and fifty acres of land 
immediately adjoining our campus, has greatly enlarged our facili- 
ties. 

THE JAMES OBERVATORY. 

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 photo- 
graphic lens to the observatory, which adds materially to its equip- 
ment. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 51 

CARNEGIE MILLSAPS LIBRARY. 

Near the close of the session of 1905-1906, Mr. Andrew Car- 
negie offered to give $15,000 for a library building if the 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 unfortunately 
gave way so that it became necessary to rebuild the structure, 
and the Carnegie Corporation has generously appropriated 
$50,000.00 for this purpose. This gives the College an adequate 
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 secxire 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. Wat- 
kins 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 appropriately labeled and shelved, 
and constitutes a valuable addition to the books on Romance 
Languages. The Martha A. Tvu-ner Fund, founded by Mrs. J. R. 
Bingham, of Carrollton, 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 past three years. 
The students also have access to the State Library and the Jackson 
Public Library, which are unusually complete in many depart- 
ments. 



52 MILLSAPS COLLEGf] 

RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION. 

Students will be required to be present at morning worship 
in the College Chapel. In this daily service the Faculty and students 
come together to hear the reading of the Bible and to engage 
in singing and prayer. Students must attend religious worship at 
least once on Sunday in one of the churches of Jackson. 

THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION, 

One of the most potent factors in the College for developing 
the students into a broader life is the Young Men's Christian 
Association. Its policy and aim is to develop the three-fold nature 
of the students — the moral, intellectual, and spiritual. It is a well 
known fact that a student who develops himself intellectually, 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 pro- 
mote 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 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. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 63 

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. Clovis 
G. Chappell, 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 en- 
thusiastic 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 infor- 
mation desired concerning College, boarding facilities, etc. After- 
ward this committee 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 
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 ex- 
penses. 

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 mis- 
sionaries 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 



54 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Volunteer Convention and the College is now represented 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 
organization. 

THE YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 

The Young Women's Christian Association plays the same 
part in the lives of the young women of the college as is played by 
the Y. M. C. A. in the lives of the men. It exerts a profound influ- 
ence for good on the whole college. 

The Y. W. C. A. has its own "Hut" on the campus, and this 
building is well equipped with conveniences, having its own kitchen 
and other rooms for the girls of the college. Religious services 
are held by the Y. W. C. A. each week, a period being set apart in 
the college programme of exercises for that purpose. The Associa- 
tion sends each year a delegate to Montreat, and the prize for the 
best song of the Y. W. C. A. was taken last year by a Millsaps 
delegate. The girls of the college have in the Y. W. C. A. all the 
advantages offered by that organization in the best colleges for 
women. 

The Freshman Commission constitutes those who are in train- 
ing for positions as future officers of the Association. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

Two large halls have been provided for the Literary Societies 
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 con- 
stitutions and by-laws of their own framing. They are named, 
respectively, the Galloway and the Lamar Societies, and contribute 
greatly to the improvement of their members. 

BOARDING FACILITIES. 

Students of Millsaps College, as a rule, arrange 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 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 55 

furniture provided for dormitory rooms. The cottages are ad- 
mirably 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 S2o.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 their meals in the college 
dormitory. Lights amount to very little. Students wishing to 
engage a room in one of the cottages 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 1924-25 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. 

THE NEW DORMITORIES. 

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 hour. 

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, according to the 
location of the room. 

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



56 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Early reservation should be made if a student wishes to be 
assured of a room. A deposit of $15.00 must accompany a request 
for a reservation. 

MEMORIAL COTTAGES. 

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. 

ATHLETICS. 

Millsaps College is a member of the Southern Intercollegiate 
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 organization, whose object 
is to promote this class of physical exercise. The faculty exercises 
a general advisory control, endeavoring to foresee and avert danger- 
ous tendencies or excess in physical exercises while giving to the 
student as far as possible, 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 interclass leagues that enlist 
a large percentage of the students in some form of active partici- 
pation 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. 

MATRICULATION. 

The various departments are under the direction of professors 
who are responsible for the systems and methods pursued. 

The session begins on the fourth 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 
dtuing that time to place their names upon the books of the Col- 
lege and the rolls of their respective classes. Lecture courses begin 
Friday, and absences will be recorded against any student not pre* 
sent from the opening lecture of each course. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 57 

EXAMINATIONS. 

The examinations in each class are held in writing. Oral 
examinations are held in some departments, but they are auxil- 
iary to the written examinations, which in conjunction with the 
class standing as determined by the daily work, of the student, 
are the main tests of the student's proficiency. 

REPORTS. 

Reports are sent at the close of each 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 practi- 
cable, the nature of the progress made by him in his work at the 
College. 

HONOR SYSTEM. 

Not the least of the educational influences of the College 
is the honor system. According to this system the student is 
not watched by the members of the Faculty during examinations, 
but is required to pledge his honor that he has neither received 
nor given any aid during the period of examination. If a student 
is accused of cheating, he is given a full and fair trial by the Honor 
Council, which is composed of seven students selected by the stu- 
dents. 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 professor. 

REGISTRATION OF NEW .STUDENTS. 

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 official 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 certificate 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. 



58 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



FEES. 



No student will be admitted into ony department of the Col- 
lege except ttpon presentation to the professor of the department 
of the Treasurer's receipt for all entrance and tuition fees. In no 
case are entrance laboratory fees returned. 

TUITION. 

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. 

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 re- 
turned 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 session. 

No student shall be considered by the faculty as an appli- 
cant for graduation until he shall have settled with the Treasurer 
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 requirements stated 
in the preceding paragraph. 

DELAYED REGISTRATION. 

Students are not permitted to delay their registration through 
carelessness or for inadequate reasons. Any student, new or old, 
who fails to present himself for registration during the first week of 
the session will be admitted to registration only upon the consent 
of the President, and will be required to pay a special fee of $3.00. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 59 

RESIDENCE, ATTENDANCE AND GRADE. 

The Academic year begins on the morning of the fourth Wed- 
nesday of September and continues for thirty-six weeks. Thanks- 
giving Day is a holiday, and there is a Christmas recess beginning 
on the evening of the eighteenth 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 
of the President, obtained in every case in advance. But leave 
of absence for piu"poses 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. But absences, whether excused or not, 
from one-foiu-th 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 unpledged 
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 Faculty. 

Change of Classes. 

Students cannot change classes or drop classes or take up 
new classes except by the consent of the Faculty. 



60 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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 indicated by the 
answers when questioned, by written exercises, note books, the 
faithful performance of laboratory (or other similar) work, etc. 
Students are regarded by the faculty as under the law of honor in 
matters affecting class standing or in examinations. The grade 
for passing in any course is 70 per cent. 

Re-examf nation, 

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

Withdrawals. 

Voluntary withdrawals from the College require the written 
consent of the Faculty or President. 

Enforced withdrawal is inflicted by the Faculty for habitual 
delinquency in class, habitual idleness or any other fault which 
prevents the student from fulfilling the purpose for which he should 
have come to the College. 

CONDUCT. 

The rules of the College require from every student decorous, 
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. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 81 

Firearms. 

The keeping of firearms by the students is strictly forbidden. 

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. 

EXPENSES. 

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 enclosure is 
intended to cover.

M.A. and M.S. Degrees. 

The degrees of M.A. and M.S. may be conferred upon grad- 
uates who hold the B.A. or B.S. degree from Millsaps College, 
or from some other institution of equal rank. For the attainment 
of either degree one year of residence at Millsaps College is required 
after the attainment of the Bachelor's degree, and also satisfactory 
completion of advanced work to the amount of fifteen hours. 
This work must be taken in not more than three different subjects; 
a major subject, in which a minimum of six hours credit must be 
earned; and one or two minor subjects to the amount of six hours 
credit. 

All the work of the major subject must be of an advanced 
character, to which undegraduates 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 submitted 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 offered 
for the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science is 
given in the pages following this announcement. 

Sixty-four year-hours are required for graduation both for 
the B.A. and 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 partially 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 completion 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 71 

of any college course with a grade of 80 '^.'j 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' r for the year shall entitle a student 
to two grade points for each year-hour. 

HONORS. 

A student who has earned 64 grade points during his course 
shall be graduated with "honors"; one who has earned 128 grade 
points shall be graduated with "high honors".

It is believed that the mastery of these highly inflected lan- 
guages will effect the purposes aimed at in education in the fol- 
lowing 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 lay 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.

(. (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 phases of 
the subject, as the work of glaciers, and of volcanoes. 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 distant parts. In the last 
month of the course special attention will be given to the Geology 
of Mississippi. 

Lectures and recitations. Two hours. (Tuesday and Thursday 
9:30-10:30.)

HISTORY 

PROFESSOR LIN 
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR MOORE. 

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 progressive organi- 
zation of its moral and intellectual ideals into laws and customs. 

In order to understand each people or nation studied, account 
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 required 
for entrance to this department. One of these must be in Medieval 
and Modern European History, listed as "History B" in the "En- 
trance Requirements" printed in this Register. 



96 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

la, lb, Ic. History of Medieval and Modern Europe. 

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR MOORE. 

Three hours a week. Required of all Freshmen. 
In this course especial stress will be laid on Modern History 
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.

IX. THE DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION. 

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR ZIMOSKI. 

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 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 97 

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 benefit the stu- 
dent in after life. An idea is also gained as to the natural ability 
of each man and quite frequently students discover that they are 
really better in athletics than they thought they were and are 
encouraged to try for the varsity teams. 

In order better to equip those students who expect to combine 
coaching with teaching a course in the theory of all the major sports 
will be offered. This course will comprise football, baseball, basket- 
ball and track. Three hours a week of classroom work will be given, 
which will also include a number of lectures. 

In football subjects such as the equipment and outfitting of 
players, training hints, practice methods, various offensive and 
defensive methods, the forward pass, trick plays, generalship and 
field tactics, and numerous other important items will be given 
consideration. 

In baseball individual play and team play will be taken up in 
detail. Offense and defense will be thoroughly discussed also 
batting, base running, position play, strategy, etc. 

Basketball will include, such topics as goal throwing, passing, 
guarding, dribbling, blocking, plays from center and plays from out 
of bounds. Various styles of offense and defense will be discussed. 

Field and track athletics will cover diet and training the dashes 
and long distance events, hurdling, vaulting, jumping, shot put, 
discus throw, javelin, and other points which are essential to track 
work.

XI. DEPARTMENT OF RELIGIOUS EDUCATION. 

(W. S. F. Tatum Foundation.) 

PROFESSOR FERGUSON. 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR HOOKER 

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 workers 
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 cooperation 
with the faculty of the college will award a certificate in Religious 
Education. Of the courses listed below, Bible 1 and 2 and Reli- 
gious Education la, lb, Ic, 2a, 2c, 3b, 5b, compose ten session hours 
counted as required work on the certificate in Religious Education. 

The following substitutions are allowed in the required work 
just listed: Religious Education 2b for Religious Education 2a 
History of Education for Religious Education 6b. 

The two remaining session hours counting toward the cer- 
tificate in Religious Education may be taken from the following 
courses: Religious Education 5c, 6a, 6b, 6c. 

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

BIBLE. 
I. a, b, c. Old Testament Introduction.

XnL THE DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SCIENCE. 

PROFESSOR HOOKER. 

PROFESSOR LIN. 

The aim of this department will be rather to do well a small 
amount of work than to cover a large field. Courses in Economics, 
Political Science, and Sociology will be offered. While these are 
elementary in their scope and nature, they will serve as a sound 
basis for further study in these subjects, and will be useful to those 
who seek to understand and improve our financial, political, and 
social life and institutions.

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

hours, first term. 

(b) A continuation of work of the preceding term. Two 
hours a week.

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

Text Books — Wallace's The Government of England, Ogg's The

Politics. 

XIV. EXTENSION DEPARTMENT. 
PROFESSOR WALKER, Director. 

It is the purpose of the Extension Department as far as pos- 
sible 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. 

AID TO METHODIST MINISTERS. 
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. 

*Not open to Freshmen or Sophomores. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 113 

GENERAL STATEMENT. 

The Summer School of Millsaps College for 1925 will open on 
June 9th, and will continue for ten weeks. 

The Summer School will be conducted for teachers who desire 
work in certain High School and College subjects and College stu- 
dents. 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 pro- 
vision should be made at the Capitol of the State for teachers to 
spend a few weeks during their vacation and at the same time take 
such work as they may find in the list of courses. 

All the advantages of the other summer schools will be af- 
forded in the way of renewal and extension of license 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 six 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 $5.00 
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. Library fee, $1.00 
Those who expect to live on the campus will bring with them a pil- 
low, bed-linen, towels and toilet articles. The dormitories and 
dining hall will be open on the evening of June 8th. Fees and board 
payable in advance. 

Those expecting to enter the Summer School should make reser- 
vation by sending to the Director a deposit of $5.00.
