MILLSAPS COLLEGE 11 

THE COLLEGE 

As a living ideal of service, Millsaps College draws inspira- 
tion from intangible but dramatic beginnings. 

Almost a century ago a lone Mississippi youth, making 
a slow and painful journey in search of an education far from 
the scenes of his birth, dreamed of making it possible for the 
highest type of Mississippi's youth to secure a Christian edu- 
cation within the Magnolia State. 

Today Millsaps College stands in Jackson, product of a 
half-century of development, as the concrete realization of 
that dream come true. Major Reuben W. Millsaps, its found- 
er, lived to see the college recognized as an institution deep- 
rooted in the traditions of scholarship. 

With material and inspirational support from Major Mill- 
saps, the Mississippi conferences of the Methodist church re- 
solved in 1888 to establish a college for men. Four years 
later, with four professors and a handful of students, Millsaps 
opened its doors in the City of Jackson. Coeducation was in- 
stituted when the college began its seventh session. 

The Rev. W. B. Murrah, of the North Mississippi confer- 
ence, launcaed the institution's career as its first president. 
President Murrah and the executive heads who followed him 
after he became a Methodist bishop have played leading roles 
in making the institution what it is. 

Presidents of the college have been W. B. Murrah, D.D., 
LL.D., (1892-1910); D. C. Hull, M.A., (1910-1912); A. F. 
Watkins, D.D., (1912-1923); D. M. Key, Ph.D., LL.D., (1923- 
1938); and M. L. Smith, Ph.D., (1938- ). 

Growth of the college has been consistent and healthy. 
For the first 25 years attendance was almost static, fluctu- 
ating between 100 and 200. Then the 1920's witnessed the 
beginnings of a steady rise, reaching a peak during the 19 28- 
29 session. The enrollment then remained between 400 and 
500 until the 1938-39 session when it reached an all-time 
high of 609. 

"No finer or more wholesome young people were ever 
assembled in any college community," in the words of a re- 



12 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

cent presidential report to the Methodist conferences of Mis- 
sissippi. "They have made the reputation of Millsaps and 
have been excelled in no line of academic endeavor. Almost 
without exception they have found a place of useful service. 
They are the chief outcome of Methodist college effort in 
Mississippi." 

Pointing out that the value of a college such as Millsaps 
may be measured by the subsequent careers of those it trains, 
the report shows that an overwhelming proportion of those 
entering the Methodist ministry in Mississippi are Millsaps 
graduates. 

"Not only through Millsaps-trained pastors, but also 
through her graduates who are teaching in the public schools 
and engaged in business and the professions, Millsaps is con- 
tributing to the highest interests of church and state," con- 
tinues the report. "There are more than 400 Millsaps grad- 
uates and many more former students teaching in state 
schools. Most of the more than 1,500 graduates are now liv- 
ing in Mississippi." 

Looking forward to a Greater Millsaps in recognition of 
its expanding fields of service, a $400,000 endowment drive 
was begun by the two conferences of the Methodist church 
in Mississippi during the fall of 1938. College needs for 
which funds are sought include an endowment increase, 
strengthening of the library, and a religion and fine arts 
building. 

A new woman's dormitory, necessitated by merging of 
all Methodist higher educational activity in Mississippi at 
Millsaps, is already completed and will be occupied next ses- 
sion. 

A keynote to the spirit of Millsaps College was recently 
struck by a prominent graduate who had returned to the cam- 
pus for a chapel address. He paid tribute to his alma mater 
as an institution which instills in its students "a conception of 
the things which really count — the ultimate values." He 
added that "Millsaps 'goes in for' the things which widen one's 
vision . . . which enable him to look for the horizon which 
others have not yet seen."

GENERAL INFORMATION 

RESOURCES 

The physical resources, the grounds, the buildings and 
the endowment are sufficient to enable the college to do a 
high grade of work; but all, except the area of the grounds, 
need to be strengthened in order to provide for reasonable 
increase of enrollment, to improve the conditions under which 
the work is done, to increase the faculty support, to maintain 
an improved physical plant, to beautify the campus, and to 
offset probable decrease in endowment productivity. 

GROUNDS 

The campus of 100 acres, situated on a beautiful emi- 
nence almost in the heart of the city, is large enough to af- 
ford room for the full development of all the phases of col- 
lege life. It is pleasantly wooded with many fine old oaks 
and elms and open fields and playing grounds. Much im- 
provement in the appearance of the campus has been effected 
in recent years. A fine concrete drive gives access to all the 
buildings. Two commodious playing fields for football and 
baseball, a track and tennis courts are readily reached from 
the heart of the campus. A fine nine-hole golf course covers 
the north end of the campus, with convenient access to the 
showers and dressing rooms in the gymnasium. 

BUILDINGS 

The instructional buildings are all relatively new and 
modern. The administration building, Murrah Hall, was 
erected in 1914; the Carnegie-Millsaps Library building in 
1926; the Sullivan-Harrell Science Hall in 1928; and the Buie 
Memorial Building for Physical Education in 1936. These 
buildings which constitute the heart of the institution, are 
well equipped for the functions they are designed to perform. 
The examining committee of Phi Beta Kappa said in regard 
to them: "The library, though small, seems adequate, and 
the collections are well chosen. The laboratories in the new 



14 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

science building are adequate, the equipment is new and up- 
to-date." 

Founders Hall, the dormitory for freshmen, is located 
across the drive from the library. There are rooms for 80 
men. On the ground floor is a large rest and recreation room, 
the apartment of the house mother and one other apartment. 
Only freshmen are allowed to room in this dormitory. Bur- 
ton Hall and Galloway Hall and the dining hall are located 
at the south end of the campus. Galloway Hall has been 
reserved for women students. Its elegant reception rooms 
have been newly equipped with handsome furnishings. 

The new dormitory for women, now approaching comple- 
tion, is located on the east campus near North State Street. 
It is a handsome structure, thoroughly modern, and will give 
luxurious accommodation to forty-four women students. 

ENDOWMENT 

The productive endowment, according to the last audit, 
amounted to .$782,718.40. In addition to the income from this 
endowment, the college budget receives pro rata share of con- 
ference assessments amounting to $13,000 and also the pro- 
ceeds of a producing gas well located on the college campus. 
Owing to decrease in the productivity of invested funds as 
well as the need of greater operating income the college needs 
contributions to its endowment more urgently than anything 
else. The statement of total assets derived from the last of- 
ficial audit, June 30, 19 38, is as follows: 

Current funds $ 18,447.89 

Loan funds 4,921.17 

Endowment 782,718.40 

Plant funds 874,902.88 

Total $1,68 0,9 90.34

CARNEGIE-MILLSAPS LIBRARY 

Near the close of the 19 5-0 6 session, Andrew Carnegie 
offered to give the college $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 unfortunate- 
ly gave way, and it became necessary to provide a new library. 
The Carnegie Corporation generously appropriated $50,000 
for this purpose. The present building was completed in 19 25- 
26 and with the addition of two floors of shelving will house 
60,000 volumes. Furniture for the reading rooms was given 
by the Enochs Lumber & Manufacturing Company. 

The library contains approximately 26,000 volumes and 
receives one hundred and twenty-five periodicals. A special 
grant of $10,000 for the purchase of books was made by the 
Carnegie Corporation during the five years 19 31-193 6, and 
about 4,600 volumes were added from this source. The In- 
come from the Martha A. Turner Fund of $1000, founded by 
Mrs. J. R. Bingham of Carrollton, Miss., is used for the pur- 
chase of books in English literature. 

The Carnegie-Whitworth fund of $775.00 is divided 
among the different departments, and is to be used for first 
and second year students mainly. 

Library Hours: Monday through Friday, 8-5, 7-9. 
Saturday, 8 to 1:15 
Sunday, 2-4 (for reading only) 

The library is closed during Thanksgiving, Christmas, 
and spring holidays. Books are loaned for two weeks or a 
shorter period of time. 

Cokesbury Press donates all their books on request, pro- 
vided we pay express charges. 

A special collection of documents, manuscripts, and l)ooks 
on Methodism in Mississippi has been started, and gifts of 
material related to this subject would be especially valuable.

RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES 

Millsaps College, as an institution of the Methodist Epis- 
copal Church, South, seeks to be a genuinely Christian col- 
lege. The faculty is made up of scholars who are Christians 
striving to fulfill the highest ideals of personal devotion and 
of community citizenship. The religious life of the college 
centers around the churches of Jackson, and the campus Y. M. 
C. A. and Y. W. C. A. Every inducement is brought to bear 
upon the students to attend a church and church school of 
their own denomination. A chapel or assembly of the entire 
college provides opportunity for worship, inspiration, and busi- 
ness of college-wide concern. Varied programs, including ad- 
dresses by faculty members, students, and outside speakers of 
ability, are presented at these services. 

THE CAMPUS-CHURCH RELATIONS COMMITTEE 
AND THE MILLSAPS CHRISTIAN COUNCIL 

The Christian program of the college is coordinated with 
the local and general program of the church through the Cam- 
pus-Church Relations Committee. The various religious ac- 
tivities of the college are correlated and unified by the Mill- 
saps Christian Council, composed of representatives of all 
religious groups on the campus. This council sponsors dele- 
gations of students to the summer conferences of the church 
at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina, and to the Methodist State 
Student Conference. 

YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

The College Y. M. C. A. is the recognized channel of stu- 
dent religious activity for men. The association was organ- 
ized shortly after the college was founded, and has done much 
to strengthen the spiritual life and influence of the college 
and its members, and to promote progressive Christian work. 
Each Monday meetings are held for the presentation and dis- 
cussion of questions of interest to students. The association 
shares vitally in the college program for the adjustment of 
freshmen to the Millsaps community. Delegations of mem- 
bers represent the association at state, regional, and Blue 
Ridge, N. C, conferences each year. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 2 3 

YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

The Y. W. C. A. provides expression for the religious in- 
terests of Millsaps women through a program similar to that 
of the Y. M. C. A. It holds weekly meetings devoted to the 
religious needs of college women, and cooperates in the orien- 
tation of new students in campus life. Representatives of 
the association participate in all of the conferences of the Y. 
W. C. A., and the Christian Student Movement. 

MINISTERIAL LEAGUE 

Students preparing for the Christian ministry may join 
the Ministerial League, which provides programs appropriate 
to the needs of students interested in Christian life work. 
Through its activities, the league provides opportunity for 
Christian service for its members, and contributes much to 
the religious life of the campus, and of the local churches. 

RELIGIOUS EMPHASIS WEEK 

The annual Religious Emphasis V7eek is sponsored by all 
of the religious groups of the campus, functioning through 
the Millsaps Christian Council. For this week some outstand- 
ing religious leader familiar with student life and problems 
addresses the student-body and various groups of students and 
professors, and is available for private conferences with in- 
dividuals. Speakers of recent years have included Dr. R. E. 
Smith of Centenary College, Dr. G. Ray Jordan of Winston- 
Salem, N. C, Dr. Marvin Franklin of Birmingham, Alabama, 
and Bishop W. T. Watkins. The evening services of this week 
are also largely attended by young people and adults from the 
Jackson area. 

THE CHRISTIAN CENTER 

All religious groups of the campus share the use of a 
frame building known as the Christian Center. This building 
has been recently remodelled and now provides facilities for 
worship, forum, recreation, and committee meetings. In ad- 
dition to the meetings of the various religious organizations, 
a vesper service is conducted in the Center each evening after 
dinner.

(2) Varsity. A varsity jacket with an "M" is given a 
student upon recommendation of the coach, the first time he 
is a regular member of a varsity team in baseball, basketball, 
football, or tennis.

lege sponsors intramural activities in: archery, baseball, bas- 
ketball, boxing, free throwing, touch football, golf, horseshoe, 
Softball, track, tennis, and volley ball. 

Cups are awarded to championship squads in these ac- 
tivities. In general, the units are based upon residence in 
dormitories and teams sponsored by social fraternities.

Comprehensive Examinations 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student must 
pass a satisfactory comprehensive examination in his major 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 47 

field of study. This examination is given in the senior year 
and is intended to cover subject matter greater in scope than 
a single course or series of courses. The purpose of the com- 
prehensive examination is to coordinate the class work with 
independent reading and thinking in such a way as to relate 
the knowledge acquired and give the student a general un- 
derstanding of the field which could not be acquired from in- 
dividual courses. 

The major field must be chosen by the student at the 
opening of his junior year. The consent of the professor in 
charge is required before a student is allowed to major in a 
department. At least twenty-four semester hours credit must 
be taken in the department in which the student is majoring. 
Juniors and seniors meet with their major professors for con- 
ferences at least once a month. The examination requires 
three hours and is both written and oral. 

All comprehensive examinations must be completed by 
May 15 of the year in which the degree is to be awarded. 



48 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

GENERAL REGULATIONS 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 

The academic year begins on the morning of the second 
Wednesday of September and continues for thirty-six weeks. 
Thanksgiving Day is a holiday, there is a Christmas recess 
of about ten days, two days holiday at the end of the first 
semester, and a spring recess. 

Attendance is required of each student throughout the 
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 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 
permission of the dean, 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 organiza- 
tions. 

Absence of athletic teams and other student organizations 
Is provided for by faculty regulations. 

Absence from any class is not excused except for sickness 
or like providential cause. But absences, whether excused or 
not, from one-fourth or more of the recitation period in any 
term will result in proportionate decrease of credits allowed. 
If a student is absent from a class more than one-fourth of 
the time devoted to that course he loses one-half credit In 
that course. The deficiency is made up by adding the loss 
in credit to the 128 hours for graduation. If a student is 
absent one-half of the time devoted to a course then all credit 
in that course is lost and the entire course must be repeated. 

Absence from examinations will not be excused except 
for sickness on day of examination, attested to by a physician's 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 49 

certificate, or other cause which the faculty by special order 
may approve. An unexcused absence is counted as a total 
failure in the examination in which it occurs. A student 
whose absence from examination is excused is admitted to a 
special examination ordered by the faculty, 

CHAPEL ATTENDANCE 

Attendance upon chapel is required of all students two 
days each week. All freshmen are required to attend chapel 
on one additional day during the first semester. 

EXAMINATIONS 

The examinations in each class are held in writing. Oral 
examinations are held in some departments but they are aux- 
iliary 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. 

At the end of the four years' course a comprehensive ex- 
amination is given in the student's major field. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

All marks are made on a six-point letter scale as follows: 
"A", "B", "C", "D", "E", and "F". "A" represents superior 
work, largely of a creative nature and in addition to the regu- 
larly prescribed work of the class. "B" represents above the 
average achievement in the regularly prescribed work. "C" 
represents the average achievement of the class in the regu- 
larly prescribed work. "D" represents a level of achievement 
in the regularly prescribed work of the class below the aver- 
age in the same relationship as the grade of "B" is above the 
average. "E" represents a condition and may be changed to 
a "D" if the grade in the other semester of the course Is "C" 
or above. "F" represents failure to do the regularly pre- 
scribed work of the class. All marks of "D" and above are 
passing marks and "F" represents failure. 



50 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

The following are semester unit courses. First semester 
grades cannot be averaged with those of the second. 

Latin 31, 32, 41, 42, 51, 61, 62. 

Greek 11, 12. 

Biology 41, 42, 51, 52, 61, 62, 71, 72. 

Education, all courses. 

English 91, 92. 

History 31, 32. 

Mathematics, all courses. 

Physics 61, 62. 

Religion, all courses. 

Social Science 41, 42, 

A student who makes a grade of "D" in a subject will be 
advanced in that subject, but a certain number of quality 
points is requisite for advancement from one class to the next 
higher class. The student must have nine quality points to be 
classed as a sophomore, 3 6 to be classed as a junior, 72 to be 
classed as a senior, and 120 for graduation. The completion 
of any college course with a grade of "C" for one semester 
shall entitle a student to one quality point for each semester 
hour, and the completion of a course with a grade of "B" for 
the semester shall entitle a student to two quality points for 
each semester hour, and the completion of a course with the 
grade of "A" for the semester shall entitle a student to three 
Quality points per semester hour. 

GRADES 

The grade of the student in any class, either for a semes- 
ter or for the session is determined by the combined class 
standing and the result of the examination. The examina- 
tion grade shall be counted as approximately one-third of the 
grade for the semester. If the combined grade is below D 
the student is required to repeat the course, except in courses 
where the grades for the two semesters may be averaged. 

Class standing in any course is determined by the regu- 
larity of attendance of the student upon lectures and labora- 
tory or other similar exercises where included in the course 
in question and by the faithful performance of his work as 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 51 

indicated by the answers when questioned, by written exer- 
cises, note books, the faithful performance of laboratory or 
other similar work, etc. The grade for passing in any course 
is D. For quality requirements see page 5 0. 

In determining honors and high honors, and all other 
awards based on scholarship, a quality index is arrived at by 
dividing the number of quality points by the number of se- 
mester hours taken. 

HOURS PERMITTED 

The usual course is 32 semester hours for each year. 
Not fewer than 24 semester hours nor more than 38 semester 
hours may be taken in a year, unless by express permission of 
the president and faculty. 

HONORS 

A student whose quality point index is 1.8 for his entire 
course shall be graduated with Honors; one whose quality 
point index is 2.7 and who has a rating of excellent on com- 
prehensive examination shall be graduated with High Honors. 

To be eligible for "honors" or "high honors" a student 
must have passed at least sixty semester hours in Millsaps 
College. Sixty per cent of the quality points on which "hon- 
ors" or "high honors" are given must be earned at Millsaps. 
Honors or high honors may be refused a student who, in the 
judgment of the faculty, has forfeited his right. These regu- 
lations do not apply to those who transfer back as much as

ance. Thia shall not be construed to apply to announced 
tests, laboratory exercises, absences immediately preceding 
and following holidays, and to freshman courses. 

III. Eligibility: Seniors and juniors who have been In resi- 
dence at least one semester. Sophomores may have the 
privilege of this list during their second semester. 

CONDUCT 

The rules of the college require from every student de- 
corous, 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 ap- 
plication to his studies, and regular attendance upon chapel. 

Drinking, gambling, and dissoluteness are strictly for- 
bidden, and any student found guilty of them is punished by 
suspension or expulsion. 

Firearms 

The keeping of firearms by the students is strictly for- 
bidden. 

Delinquency. 

Reports are made each two weeks of all those failing 
during the preceding two weeks in each subject. The names 
of those delinquent are posted and notice is sent to the parent 
or guardian. 

To remain in college a freshman must pass In the first 
semester at least two subjects and have a grade of E in a 
third. After the first half of the freshman year a student 
must pass at least three subjects a semester to continue in 
college. The respective deans may exercise their discretion 
in the enforcement of this regulation. 

Demerit System. 

1. The demerit system is used. Demerits are incurred by 
unexcused absences from class, chapel, and for other vio- 
lations of the college regulations, such as hazing and other 
offences. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 53 

2. When a student has received an aggregate of thirty-five 
demerits he is called before the dean and warned. A 
notice of the warning is sent to his parent or guardian. 

3. When the aggregate of demerits reaches sixty-five, he re- 
ceives a second warning, and a second notice is sent to hia 
parent or guardian. 

4. When the aggregate of demerits reaches one hundred, h« 
is dismissed from the college. 

REPORTS 

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

WITHDRAWALS 

Voluntary withdrawals from the college require the con- 
sent of the faculty or president. 

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

The college reserves the right to cancel the registration 
of any student at any time. In such a case, the prorata por- 
tion of room rent, and tuition will be returned. 

MATRICULATION 

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

The session begins on the second Wednesday of Septem- 
ber and continues with recess of about ten days at Christmas, 
until the first Tuesday in June. The first three 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 



54 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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. 

REGISTRATION 

Applicants seeking admission to the college for the first 
time should present themselves to the registrar of the col- 
lege at his office in the main building promptly at 9:00 o'cloch 
on the opening day, September 13. In each instance a 
certificate of good moral character, signed by the proper of- 
ficial of the institution attended during the previous session, 
or by some persons of known standing, must be sent to the 
Registrar at least two weeks before the opening of the session. 
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 these he 
must take the required courses and those electives which he 
proposes to pursue during the session. The card must then 
be carried to the bursar, who will, after the college fees have 
been paid to him, sign the card. Registration is incomplete 
unless the registration card is signed by both the registrar 
and the bursar. On payment of these fees the applicant will 
be admitted to classes. 

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 dur- 
ing the first five days of the session will be admitted to regis- 
tration only upon the consent of the president, and will be 
required to pay a special fee of $3.00. 

CHANGE OF REGISTRATION 

Students cannot change classes or drop classes or take 
up new classes except by the consent of the registrar or fac- 
ulty.

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR HUDDLESTON • 

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR COULLET 

It Is believed that the mastery of these highly Inflected 
languages will effect the purposes aimed at in education in 
the following ways: 

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 re- 
flexes of accuracy, efficiency and system. 

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. 

Intimate contact with the very words which express the 
best ideals and aspirations of those great spirits whose influ- 
ence has been most abiding and formative in our world should 
shape the character to fine and worthy purposes. The "ul- 
timate objectives" are not lost sight of.

school teacher shall contain the following: 1. A specified 
academic core curriculum; 2. A specified professional cor© 
curriculum; 3. A specified number of hours training in the 
subject or subjects taught. Two high school subjects are 
specified as the maximum number for which one can be 
trained to teach. 

The core curriculum specifies that all high school teach- 
ers have a minimum of twelve semester hours in English, 
nine semester hours in social studies, six semester hours in 
science and two semester hours in physical education and

INSTRUCTOR RAMSEY * 

In the courses iu History two things will be kept in view. 
Students will be expected to acquaint themselves with the 
significant 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 
and the development of nations will be indicated, and emphasis 
will be laid upon the idea that history is an account of the 
development of the human race. Both the facts and the 
reasons will be studied to account for the progressive organi- 
zation of the social, intellectual, and moral ideals of the 
various peoples into laws and customs. 

In the attempt to understand the progress of the nations, 
account will be taken of their literatures, their racial compo- 
sition, their economic conditions, their religions, their social 
Institutions, and their forms of government. 

11. History of Europe. — In this course an attempt will be 
made to show that the problems and ideals of modern 
nations come to them from previous history. This is

X. THE DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY 

PROFESSOR LIN 

INSTRUCTOR RAMSEY 

The courses in philosophy are designed to give an intelli- 
gent view of the human mind, and to indicate the conditions 
of all valid thought. Only what is fundamental will be con- 
sidered. 

In logic both deductive and inductive logic will be studied, 
but neither course will receive credit for graduation unless 
supplemented by the other course in this subject. In the 
Introduction to Philosophy attention will be given to types 
of philosophy which enter into modern thought. In the 
History of Philosophy a comprehensive view will be given of 
the results obtained by the greatest thinkers who have at- 
tempted to frame a consistent theory of the material and the 
spiritual world. An attempt will be made to show that these 
have a consecutive connection in development. 

In ethics one course will consider ancient ethics, and a 
following course will be given in modern ethics. It is recom- 
mended that courses in logic be taken before other courses 
are attempted. 

11. Deductive liOgic. — Three hours credit. First semester.

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 freedom in selection is 
offered. The sole aim is to create a healthy desire to engage 
in some form of recreation, under proper supervision, so as to 
benefit the student morally, mentally, and physically. 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 
student 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. 

Physical Education for Women. — General gymnastics (light 
apparatus); rhythmic plays and games. Tumbling, pyramid- 
building, etc; development and corrective gymnastics. Spring 
Festival. Point system used. Monograms awarded. Re- 
quired of all freshmen. Two hours credit.

course in the theory of all major sports will be offered. This 
course will comprise football, baseball, basketball and track. 
Two 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 units, practice methods, various offensive 
and defensive methods, the forward pass, trick plays, general-

XIII. THE DEPARTMENT OF RELIGION 

THE TATUM FOUNDATION 

PROFESSOR BULLOCK 
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR THOMAS 

The courses in this department are offered for the con- 
tribution they make to intelligent Christian living, and to a 
genuine cultural education, rather than for any special profes- 
sional interest such as the ministry or other Christian life- 
service. These special interests are not neglected, but the 
department seeks primarily to meet the urgent need of the 
Church for an effective leadership among its lay members. 
It is hoped that many students will avail themselves of these 
courses. 

Some Millsaps students, under the direction of the De- 
partment of Religion and the Board of Christian Education, 
serve in Short Term Training Courses in the Mississippi 
Methodist conferences during the summer. This department 
gladly cooperates in preparing students for this important 
service to the Church. 

Religion 11 and 12, providing an introduction to both 
the Old and New Testaments, and some insight into the mean- 
ing of the Christian religion, is required of all freshmen ex- 
cept pre-medical, pre-dental, and pre-engineering students, 
who are required to take it during the sophomore year. 

Other than Religion 11 and 12, both of which must be 
taken, any single semester course may be taken. Pre- 
requisites for any given course may be waived under special 
circumstances, but only upon the consent of the professor. 

Majors in this department may emphasize either Biblical 
literature or religious education, but in either case the whole 
plan should be carefully worked out in cooperation with the 
professor of religion. It is the growing sentiment among the 
leaders of the Church that students preparing for the ministry 
should seek to build a broad cultural foundation for their pro- 
fessional training in a school of theology. All ministerial 
students should plan their course in accordance with the pre- 
theological curriculum available upon application to the De- 
partment of Religion.

XV. THE DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SCIENCE 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR WHARTON 

INSTRUCTOR RAMSEY* 

INSTRUCTOR JONES* 

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 im- 
prove our financial, political, and social life and institutions. 

The enrollment will be limited to a number that can be 
taught thoroughly by the staff dealing with these subjects. 
Since these subjects deal with the matters which are engross- 
ing the attention of every important nation in the world, and 
which lie at the basis of all material welfare it is believed 
that students who are awake to the things of first importance 
in civilization will be profited by the courses given.

Environment 

Jackson is truly a center of art and learning. The School 
of Music is an integral part of the city's magnificent educa- 
tional and cultural system and makes its contribution to this 
ideal environment. The fine art students of Millsaps College 
have splendid opportunities of hearing some of the world's 
renowned musicians who are brought to Jackson under the 
auspices of the community concerts and local musical clubs. 

Musical Attractions 

Music facilities available to Millsaps students are of the 
highest order. The concert season, which begins during the 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 107 

fall term and closes In late spring, includes performances by 
world famous musicians. During the 1938 season Millsaps 
students were thrilled by such great artists as Albert Spald- 
ing, outstanding American violinist; Rose Bampton, soprano 
of the Metropolitan Opera; Rudolph Ganz, pianist; Nino Mar- 
tini, Metropolitan tenor; the San Carlo Opera Company; and 
the famed Mordkin Russian Imperial Ballet. For the 1939- 
40 season, Millsaps' Music Department anticipates a concert 
by Jeannette McDonald, of movie fame, a renowned symphony 
orchestra, a famed chorus, and several other attractions by 
outstanding artists. The Millsaps Special Committee on Art- 
ists Series believes that by making it possible for students to 
hear the great masters their taste for fine music will be en- 
hanced and encouraged. 

Recitals and Radio Programs 

Opportunities for appearance in recital in Murrah Hall, 
the main auditorium in the college building will be given to 
all students. Radio programs offer to those qualified to ap- 
pear in them a very valuable experience. Participation in the 
college orchestra and chorus, give further performing experi- 
ence. 

Music Study Club 

The Beethoven Club of Millsaps College offers attractive 
and helpful features in the community life of the musical stu- 
dents. The club brings noted artists to the campus to hold 
master classes and give concerts. Some of the artists who 
have been here under the club auspices are Isabel and Silvio 
Scionti, Rudolph Ganz, and Percy Grainger. 
Courses of Study 

The curricula of the School of Music are divided into 
classifications, as follows: Preparatory, Intermediate, Col- 
lege. 

There are no requirements for admission into the pre- 
paratory department. 

Students are promoted to the intermediate division upon 
completion of the work of the preparatory department. 

Candidates for a certificate, diploma or degree must meet 
the regular college entrance requirements, viz: graduation 



108 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

from an approved high school, or a minimum of fifteen units 
of high school work. 

Students may also be admitted to advanced standing in 
the course on the presentation of a satisfactory transcript of 
record of work pursued in an accredited music school of col- 
lege grade. 

A maximum of thirty semester-hours of credit may be 
secured through examinations, by students who have had work 
subsequent to high school graduation under competent pri- 
vate Instructors. Examinations for advanced standing must 
be taken and the grades must be recorded in the Registrar's 
office, within six weeks of the student's registration at Mill- 
saps School of Music. 

No student will be granted a certificate or degree un- 
less the residence requirement has been met. Residence may 
be established by a year of study (minimum of thirty-six 
weeks) in which at least 24 semester hours have been earned 
toward the last thirty hours for a degree. A six weeks' sum- 
mer session may be accepted as the equivalent of a quarter 
of a year provided the student earns six semester hours dur- 
ing that period. 

Credit in applied music is based on the hours of practice, 
one semester hour for each three hours per week of practice, 
plus the necessary individual instruction, with a limit of six 
semester hours per semester. Credit is not earned unless 
final examinations are passed. 

Special students are admitted without reference to en- 
trance requirements, but no credit toward degree is allowed 
to such students. However, special students who can satisfy 
entrance requirements and who desire credit for such work 
as they may take are subject to the same examinations and 
regulations as full course students. All credits earned are 
entered on the school records and may be used toward cre- 
dentials at a later time, should the students eventually be- 
come candidates for graduation. 

The requirements for entrance and for graduation in the 
Millsaps School of Music are in accordance with the published 
regulations of the National Association of Schools of Music. 



I 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 109 

A maximum of twenty-four semester-hours in the School 
of Music may be credited toward the degree of Bachelor of 
Arts or Bachelor of Science. 

Regular hours of practice are assigned to each student by 
the Director of the School of Music. The number of hours 
of daily practice depends upon the classification of students. 
Of B.Mus. students with Piano, Violin as major subject, three 
hours and a half daily practice are required in their fresh- 
man and sophomore years and four hours daily in junior and 
senior years; with Voice as the major subject, two hours daily 
practice are required in their freshman, sophomore and jun- 
ior years and three hours in their senior year. Of all other 
classifications of students, one hour and a half or two hours 
of daily practice is required. 

Scholarships 

Students entering the freshman class may compete for a 
half scholarship in any of the departments. The half schol- 
arship means that the winner is to pay one-half of the regu- 
lar tuition for one school year. The freshman students com- 
peting are required to play or sing from memory. Singers 
must present two standard songs; pianist must play an In- 
vention from the Two-Part Inventions of Bach and a Chopin 
prelude; violinist must present two standard selections, 

A fee of $2.00 must be paid by all applicants for a free 
scholarship. The fee will not be returned to candidates who 
fail to appear for examinations at given time, or who do not 
enroll in the School of Music. Winners of partial scholar- 
ships and those not successful may apply the amount of the 
deposit toward lessons in the School of Music. 

The contest will be held at 10:00 o'clock Wednesday, 
September 13, 1939. No further notification of the date and

GENERAL STATEMENT 

The Summer School of Millsaps College for 19 39 will 
open on June 8 and will continue for eleven weeks. 

The Summer School is planned especially for college stu- 
dents and for teachers who desire further professional work 
or regular college work. Teachers may secure renewal of li- 
cense by attendance for nine weeks. Entrance units and tran- 
scripts will be required of all new students. 

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 teach- 
ers 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 
afforded in the way of renewal and extension of license pro- 
vided 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 in Education, be granted a temporary 
state license without examination by the State Board of Ex- 
aminers. 

The amount of work that a student may take will be lim- 
ited to two subjects with a total credit of twelve semester 
hours, or to four semester courses of three hours each. 

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

Tuition $35.00 two courses for both semesters. $17.50 
one course both semesters or two courses one semester. Board 
and room $30.00 per semester. Matriculation fee $5.00. Sci- 
ence fee, $10.00. Library fee, $3.00. Science breakage fee, 
$2.00 for each course, unused portion returned. Those who 
expect to live on the campus will bring with them a pillow, 
bed-linen, towels and toilet articles. The dining hall will be 
open on the evening of June 7. Rooms open on June 7. 
Fees and board payable strictly in advance.
