MILLSAPS COLLEGE 13 

THE COLLEGE 

S 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, launched 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 1928- 
29 session. The enrollment then remained between 400 and 
500 until the 1938-39 session; since that time it has exceeded 
600. 

"No finer or more wholesome young people were ever 
assembled in any college community," says a recent presiden- 



14 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

tial report to the Methodist conferences of Mississippi. "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 interest 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. This movement will continue until 1942 when Mill- 
saps celebrates its semi-centennial. 

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 near the heart of the city, is large enough to afford 
room for the full development of all the phases of college 
life. It is pleasantly wooded with many fine old oaks and 
elms and open fields and playing grounds. Much improve- 
ment 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 19 36. 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 



16 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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

Founders Hall, located across the drive from the library, 
has rooms for 80 men. On the ground floor is a large rest 
and recreation room and an apartment occupied by a mem- 
ber of the college staff. Burton Hall and Galloway Hall are 
located at the south end of the campus. Both these halls 
have been reserved for women students. The elegant recep- 
tion rooms have been newly equipped with handsome furnish- 
ings. 

Whitworth Hall, the new dormitory for women, erected 
in 1939, is located on the east campus near North State Street. 
It is a handsome structure, thoroughly modern, and gives 
luxurious accommodation to forty-four women students. 

ENDOWMENT 

The productive endowment, according to the last audit, 
amounted to $758,081.46. In addition to the income from 
this endowment, the college budget receives pro rata share of 
conference assessments amounting to $6,800 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 official audit, June 30, 1940, is as follows: 

Current funds $ 9,942.40 

Loan funds 5,146.36 

Endowment 758,081.46 

Plant funds 9 29,075.01 

Total $1,702,245.23

CARNEGIE-MILLSAPS LIBRARY 

Near the close of the 1905-06 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 a second floor of shelving, recent- 
ly completed, will house 60,000 volumes. Furniture for the 
reading rooms was given by the Enochs Lumber & Manufac- 
turing Company. 

The library contains approximately 27,610 volumes and 
receives one hundred and forty periodicals. A special grant 
of $10,000 for the purchase of books was made by the Car- 
negie Corporation during the five years 1931-1936, and about 
4,600 volumes were added from this source. The income from 
the Martha A. Turner Fund of $1,000, founded by Mrs. J. R. 
Bingham of Carrollton, Miss., is used for the purchase of 
books in English literature. 

Library Hours: Monday through Friday, 8 to 5, 6 to 9; 
Saturday, 8 to 4. 

The library is closed during Thanksgiving, Christmas, 
and spring holidays. 

A special collection of documents, manuscripts, and books 
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 
Church, seeks to be a genuinely Christian college. The fac- 
ulty is made up of scholars who are Christians striving to 
fulfill the highest ideals of personal devotion and of com- 
munity citizenship. The religious life of the college cen- 
ters 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. 

METHODIST 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 Methodist Church 
through the Campus-Church Relations Committee. The va- 
rious religious activities of the college are correlated and uni- 
fied by the Millsaps Christian Council, composed of represen- 
tatives of all organized religious groups on the campus. This 
council sponsors delegations of students to the summer con- 
ferences of the church at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina, 
and to the Methodist State Student Conference. It Is the 
channel for all activities of the Methodist Student Movement 
at Millsaps. 

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 



26 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

freshmen to the Millsaps community. Delegations of mem- 
bers represent the association at state, regional, and Blue 
Ridge, N. C, conferences each year. 

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. 

BAPTIST STUDENT UNION 

All Baptist students at Millsaps are included in the mem- 
bership of the Baptist Student Union, which was organized 
three years ago. The Union carries on a religious program 
in cooperation with the local Baptist churches, and the BSU 
Council at its weekly meetings plans an active religious and 
social program for Baptist students on the campus. The or- 
ganization attempts to develop a feeling of brotherhood among 
its members and to induce them to participate in other re- 
ligious activities on the campus and in the churches. 

RELIGIOUS EMPHASIS WEEK 

The annual Religious Emphasis Week is sponsored by 
all 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 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 27 

addresses the student body and various groups of students and 
professors, and is available for private conference with in- 
dividuals. Speakers of recent years have included Bishop 
W. T. Watkins, Dr. W. A. Smart, of Emory University, Dr. 
Marshall Steel of Texas. The speaker for this occasion in the 
1941-42 college year is Dr. G. Ray Jordan, of Charlotte, N. C. 

THE CHRISTIAN CENTER 

All religious groups of the campus share the use of a 
frame building known as the Christian Center. This building 
provides facilities for worship, forum, recreation, and com- 
mittee meetings. 



28 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

ATHLETICS 

Millsaps College has maintained a consistently high ath- 
letic standard, not only in developing teams for intercollegiate 
competition, but in providing a well rounded program which 
attempts to bring every student in college into some form of 
athletic competition. 

I. ELIGIBILITY. 

Millsaps is a member of the Dixie conference. Important 
rules which govern Millsaps athletics are: (1) During his 
freshman year of residence a student may participate in the 
major sports only in limited competition with the freshmen 
of other institutions or with junior colleges. (2) A student 
who participates as a member of varsity teams, must advance 
each year In class standing. (3) Graduates of junior colleges 
are eligible at once for varsity teams. 

II. AWARDS. 

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. 

III. INTRAMURAL ATHLETICS. 

In the desire to have a "sports for all" program, the col- 
lege sponsors intramural activities in: baseball, basketball, 
boxing, free throwing, touch football, golf, horseshoes, soft- 
ball, 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. 

IV. ATHLETICS FOR WOMEN. 

Women's athletics are encouraged for the reason that 
when properly regulated they tend to promote both the physi- 
cal and moral well-being of the students and to foster a whole- 
some college spirit. 

Millsaps does not sponsor inter-collegiate athletics for 
women. The desire is to have a program in which all girls 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 29 

may participate. The intramural program satisfies this need. 
The sororities, Empyreans, and non-sorority group form the 
teams which compete in these activities, which include arch- 
ery, ping-pong, volleyball, basketball, softball, golf, badmin- 
ton, tennis, and bowling. 

Women students are encouraged to participate in ath- 
letic activities during their leisure time. The college offers 
an unlimited number of facilities for their use — the golf 
course, tennis courts, archery range, the gymnasium, and 
many other places which may be used at the students' pleas- 
ure. 

V. ATHLETIC FACILITIES. 

(1) A new gymnasium provides a large playing floor for 
basketball, boxing, volley ball, indoor baseball, and tennis. 
It has a regulation ring for boxing, mats for gymnastics, dress- 
ing rooms for all teams, a room for visiting teams, trainer's 
room complete with equipment for injuries, a club room for 
wearers of the "M", and the college store. The gymnasium 
has become the center of the activities of the students. (2) 
The football stadium with seating accommodations for five 
thousand spectators is equipped with lights for night games 
and also contains a fine 24 ft. quarter mile cinder track. (3) 
The baseball field is separate from the football stadium and 
is also used as a freshman football practice field. (4) Five 
new clay tennis courts have been constructed near the gymna- 
sium and are kept in perfect condition in nine out of the 
twelve months of the year. (5) A very fine nine hole golf 
course has been built and is for use by all students. 



30 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS 

STUDENT ASSOCIATION 

The Millsaps Student Association is governed by officers 
elected by the student body and the student executive board. 
The president, vice-president, and the secretary-treasurer are 
elected annually from the student body. Members of the stu- 
dent executive board are chosen by the activities which they 
represent. 

Meetings of the student executive board are held at least 
once a month, with other meetings called when the president 
considers them necessary. The Student Association holds its 
regular meeting during the chapel period every Friday morn- 
ing. All members of the student body automatically become 
members of the Student Association. 

The duties and functions of the student executive board 
are to act in the administration of student affairs, to cooperate 
with the administration in the orientation program of the 
college, to promote a better understanding between students 
and faculty, and to work for the benefit of the student body 
and the progress of the college. 

THE PURPLE AND WHITE 

A working laboratory for students with journalistic in- 
clinations is furnished in The Purple and White, weekly Mill- 
saps student publication. A college newspaper with a reputa- 
tion which ranks it among the best in the South, The Purple 
and White affords actual experience in the editorial, business, 
and advertising phases of a modern news-sheet. Extra-cur- 
ricular college credit for members of the staff, and the valua- 
ble experience it affords, make this activity both profitable 
and interesting to students. 

THE BOBASHELA 

The Bobashela is the annual student publication of Mill- 
saps College. It attempts to give a comprehensive view of 
campus life as enjoyed by the student body and faculty mem- 
bers. The 1941 edition is the thirty-fifth volume of this 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 31 

Millsaps book. Bobashela is a Choctaw Indian name for "good 
friend." 

THE PLAYERS 

The dramatic club of the college has as its official name 
"The Millsaps Players." Under the direction of Dr. M. C. 
White, the Players put on two or more three-act plays each 
year, and produce with first year novices six or more one-act 
plays. The organization is a live one and its productions are 
highly creditable. 

The Players within recent years have greatly added to 
the facilities for play production: The stage has been en- 
larged, a handsome curtain and cylorama, three complete sets 
of scenery, and complete lighting equipment have been pur- 
chased. 

THE MILLSAPS SINGERS 

The Millsaps Singers, a chorus composed of men and 
women students under the able direction of Mr. Alvin J. King, 
is one of the most important organizations on the Millsaps 
campus. 

In addition to numerous appearances in Jackson and 
nearby towns, the purple-robed chorus takes an extensive trip 
each year. This year's tour carried the Singers into Ala- 
bama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, and Illinois. 

Membership is open to freshmen and upper-classmen 
alike and two semester hours' credit is given for the year's 
work. 

BEETHOVEN 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. 

THE BAND 
The Millsaps Symphonic Band is open to all students, 



32 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

men and women, who can qualify. The year's repertoire work 
covers all phases of symphonic music. Two semester hours 
credit is given for the year's work. 

DEBATING 

Since the year the college was founded, debating has 
occupied an important place in its activities. Millsaps teams 
participate in about 150 debates each year, meeting teams 
from the leading institutions in the South and Southwest. 

Extra-curricular credit is offered for successful partici- 
pation in debating, oratory, and extemporaneous public speak- 
ing. 

THE INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB 

The International Relations Club of Millsaps College is 
an endowed honorary organization which recognizes superior 
work in current history. 

Membership is elective. 

The club holds bi-monthly meetings at which timely world 
problems and events are discussed by student and faculty 
members. Another feature of the club is to sponsor occa- 
sional lectures of international interest.

and other remaining organizations receive 40%. For the 
amount the Athletic Association receives, the student is given 
a season ticket to all athletic contests held during the year 
and use of the gym and other athletic facilities. The amount 



44 MILLSAPS COLLEGE

equipment. The remaining 40% of the student activities fee 
is distributed among organizations such as the Y.M.C.A., 
Y.W.C.A., The Student Association, Debate Clubs, Band, Gleo 
Club, Dramatics, Purple & White, Bobashela, "M" Club, and 
The Woman's Association. That part of the fee assigned the 
Bobashela is in part payment on the student year book.

book for only fifty cents additional. The portion designated 
for The Purple & White gives each student a year's subscrip- 
tion to the college weekly paper.

good reason is not able to attend classes, all fees will be re- 
funded except a matriculation fee of $10.00. In case of un- 
avoidable withdrawal after classes have begun, if approved 
by the President and Bursar of the college, tuition and room 
rent will be charged only for the time actually spent in school 
at rate of one-eighth yearly rate for room and tuition for 
each month or fraction thereof spent in school. Except In 
case of such withdrawal from school, rooms will not be rented

dormitory rooms vacated in midst of semester. The student's 
withdrawal from the college will be counted as occurring on 
the day he presents to the business office a drop card secured 
from the Dean or Registrar's office.

before a student will be enrolled for the next semester. The 
Registrar is not permitted to transfer credits until all out- 
standing indebtedness to the college is paid in the Bursar's 
office.

Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student must 
pass a satisfactory comprehensive examination in his major 
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 
at least three hours and is both written and oral. 

All comprehensive examinations are given between April 
15 and April 25 of the year in which the degree is to be 
awarded. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 51 

GENERAL REGULATIONS 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 

If a student is absent twelve times in a three hour course, 
or a proportionate number in a course giving other credit, 
then all credit in that course is lost and the entire course must 
be repeated. No class absences are excused. 

Absence from examinations will not be excused except 
for sickness on day of examination (attested by a physician's 
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 one 
day each week. All freshmen are required to attend chapel 
on one additional day during the first semester. 

REMEDIAL ENGLISH 

The English Department is offering a course in Remedial 
English for students above the freshman class who are de- 
ficient in English composition. It seeks to determine each 
student's deficiencies and to overcome them by teaching the 
fundamental rules of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and 
sentence structure. It requires practice in corrective exer- 
cises and the writing of brief themes as a means of estab- 
lishing habits of correct usage. Until the student has re- 
moved the deficiency in English his instructor will give him 
a grade of c.c. (composition condition). No credit. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

All marks are made on a six-point letter scale. "A" 
represents superior work, largely of a creative nature and in 
addition to the regularly prescribed work of the class. "B" 
represents above the average achievement in the regularly 



52 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

prescribed work. "C" represents the average achievement 
of the class in the regularly prescribed work. "D" repre- 
sents a level of achievement in the regularly prescribed work 
of the class below the average 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" repre- 
sents failure to do the regularly prescribed work of the class. 
All marks of "D" and above are passing marks and "F" rep- 
resents failure. 

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

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

Economics 41, 42, 51, 52, 61, 62, 71, 72, 91, 92.

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, 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 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 53 

standing and the result of a written examination. The exam- 
ination 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 aver- 
aged. 

HOURS PERMITTED 

Fifteen academic semester hours is considered the nor- 
mal load per semester. 

No student may take more than seventeen semester hours 
of academic work unless he has a quality index of 1.5 on the 
latest previous college term or semester. No student may 
take more than nineteen semester hours of academic work 
unless he has a quality point index of 2. on the latest previous 
college term or semester, and obtains permission from the 
Dean. 

Any student who is permitted to take more than seven- 
teen semester hours of academic work will be required to pay 
at the rate of $5.00 for each additional semester hour over 
seventeen. 

HONORS 

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. 

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. Honors or high honors may be refused a student 
who, in the judgment of the faculty, has forfeited his right.

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 pro rata por- 
tion of room rent and tuition will be returned. 

REGISTRATION 

Applicants seeking admission to the college for the first 
time should present themselves to the registrar of the college 
promptly at 9:00 o'clock on the opening day. In each in- 
stance a certificate of good moral character, signed by the 
proper official of the institution attended during the pre- 
vious session, 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 cer- 
tificate or examination will be furnished with a card contain- 
ing the courses offered. From these he must take the re^ 
quired courses and those electives which he proposes to pur- 
sue during the session. The card must then be carried to 
the bursar, who will, after the college fees have been paid 



56 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

to him, sign the card. Registration is incomplete unless the 
registration card is signed by both the registrar and the bur- 
sar. 

CHANGE OF REGISTRATION 

Students cannot change classes or drop classes or take up 
new classes except by the consent of the registrar and of all 
faculty members concerned. Courses dropped after the first 
nine weeks of a semester shall be recorded as failures.

I. DEPARTMENT OF ANCIENT LANGUAGES 

PROFESSOR HAMILTON 

PROFESSOR CURRIE 

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.

DR. W. D. McCAIN 

In the courses in 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 empha- 
sis 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 va- 
rious 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 
done that the students may understand the problems of 
modern life, including those of our own nation and the 
relation of our problems to those of other nations with 
which we must deal. Three hours credit. First semes-

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. 

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 His- 
tory of Philosophy a comprehensive view will be given of the 
results obtained by the greatest thinkers who have attempted 
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 recommended that courses in 
logic be taken before other courses are attempted. 

Students who have studied physics and psychology will 
find those subjects helpful in the understanding of philoso- 
phy.

The following courses are offered for college credit: 

11, 12. Physical Training for Men. — The requirements in 
physical work are designed to cover the whole school 
year at the rate of two hours a week for each freshman. 
Although this work is compulsory, considerable free- 
dom in selection is offered. The sole aim is to create 
a healthy desire to engage in some form of recreation, 
under proper supervision, so as to benefit the student 
morally, mentally, and physically. This exercise takes 
the form of competitive games in order to arouse the 
proper interest, develop team work, teach initiative, 
strengthen the morale, teach true sportsmanship, and 
create a life-long interest in some form of sport which 
will 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 en- 
couraged to try for the varsity teams. 
Stone 

Physical Education for Women — Group A. — A general 
course required of all freshmen. This includes rhythm, 
team sports, individual sports, swimming, and horse-back 
riding (optional). Two hours credit.

a course in the theory of all major sports will be of- 
fered. This course will comprise football, baseball, bas- 
ketball, 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 out- 
fitting of players, training units, practice methods, va- 
rious 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 thor- 
oughly 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. Prerequisite for this 
course: At least two years participation in major sports.

THE TATUM FOUNDATION 

PROFESSOR BULLOCK 

PRESIDENT SMITH 

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR THOMAS 

The courses in this department are offered for the con- 
tribution they make to Christian living and genuine culture, 
rather than for any special professional interest such as the 
ministry or other Christian life-service. These special inter- 
ests are not neglected, but the department seeks primarily to 
meet the urgent need of the Church for an effective leader- 
ship 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 Methodist Boards of Education, 
teach Short Term Training Courses in the Mississippi Meth- 
odist conferences during the summer. This department glad- 
ly cooperates in preparing students for this important service 
to the Church. 

Religion 11 and 12, providing an introduction to the 
Bible and some insight into the meaning of the Christian re- 
ligion, is required of all students in either the freshman or 
the sophomore year. Other than Religion 11 and 12, both of 
which must be taken, any single semester course may be tak- 
en. Prerequisites for any given course may be waived under 
special circumstances upon the consent of the professor. 

Majors should plan their course of study 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 professional 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 Department of Religion.

background for the study and appreciation of the Bible,

Requirements for Entrance 

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. 

The curricula of the School of Music are divided into 
three classifications, as follows: Preparatory, Intermediate, 
College. There are no requirements for admission to the 
preparatory department. Students are promoted to the inter- 
mediate division upon completion of the work of the prepara- 
tory department 

Candidates for a certificate, diploma, or degree must 
meet the regular college entrance requirements as stated else- 
where in this catalog. 

Students may also be admitted to advanced standing on 
the presentation of a satisfactory transcript of record of work 
pursued in an accredited music school of college 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 private 
instructors. Examinations for advanced standing must be 
taken within six weeks of the student's registration. 

Special students are admitted without reference to en- 
trance requirements, but no credit toward a degree is al- 
lowed such students. Special students who can satisfy en- 
trance requirements, however, 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 
credentials at a later time, should the students eventually be- 
come candidates for graduation. 

Requii'enients for Graduation 

No student will be granted a certificate or degree unless 
the residence requirement has been met. Residence may be

in which at least twenty-four semester hours have been 
earned toward the last thirty hours for a degree. A six-

of a quarter of a year, provided the student earns six semes- 
ter hours during that period. 

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

The applicant for a Certificate in Piano must complete

Music Degree with a Major in Piano (not including the Lib- 
eral Arts courses), plus the Counterpoint required in the

didates for this certificate are required to play a prelude and 
a fugue from the "Well-Tempered Clavichord by Bach, a So- 
nata of Beethoven equivalent in difficulty to Op. 26 or Op. 
31, No. 2, and two compositions by romantic or standard 
modern composers. 

The applicant for the Diploma in Piano must complete 
the four years of the course in piano and the first three years 
in the theory outlined in the curriculum for the Bachelor of 
Music Degree with a Major in piano, plus the Liberal Arts 
degree. Candidates for this diploma must be prepared to 
perform a program consisting of a prelude and fugue by Bach, 
a sonata of the more advanced type by either Beethoven, 
Schumann, or Chopin, and at least six compositions of the 
more advanced type by romantic and standard modern com- 
posers. 

The applicant for a degree with piano as major must be 
able to read well by sight and must present a public program, 
including a two-piano composition and a concerto or part of 
a concerto.

SUMMER SESSION 
1941 

First Term May 30-July 5 

Second Term July 7-Aug. 9 

GENERAL STATEMENT 

The thirtieth annual Summer Session of Millsaps College 
is scheduled to begin on Friday, May 30, and close Saturday, 
August 9th. The Summer Session is an integral part of the 
college's program. The standards of academic and profes- 
sional achievement are equivalent to those of the regular ses- 
sion. The courses offered and the instructors are the same 
as for the fall and spring semesters. Credit obtained is fully 
recognized toward the baccalaureate degrees which the col- 
lege confers. 

The Summer Session courses are planned primarily to 
serve the following groups of men and women: 

1. Teachers in service who wish, while teaching, to advance 
toward a college degree. 

2. Teachers who desire to secure, extend, or renew licenses. 
Millsaps College and its work are fully approved by the 
State Department of Education. 

3. College graduates who lack the required number of hours 
in Education for a teacher's license and who desire to 
make up some of these hours. 

4. Those who wish to do college credit work toward the 
undergraduate degree of A.B. or B.S. Many students who 
live in Jackson and vicinity but attend other colleges 
during the winter take summer work at Millsaps. In 
this way they can live at home and still carry on work 
toward a degree. 

5. Mature individuals who hold regular jobs in Jackson 
and who wish to add to their college work by taking an 
early morning class before going to work. 

6. All persons qualified to pursue with advantage any 
course offered whether or not their other activities are 
primarily study or teaching. 



136 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

7. 1941 High School Graduates. 

An opportunity for high school graduates to start their 
college work is offered in the Millsaps College Summer 
Session. Although many high school graduates will not 
make plans to enter college until September, more and 
more students are considering the Summer Session as 
an adjustment period between high school and college. 

8. Millsaps students who wish to complete work for a de- 
gree in less than the usual four-year period. Degrees 
are conferred at the end of the Summer Session upon 
those students who complete the requirements during 
the summer. 

HOURS OF WORK PERMITTED 
The amount of work that a student may take will be 
limited to two subjects with a total credit of twelve semester 
hours, or to four semester courses of three hours each. 

FEES AND EXPENSES 
Tuition 

Fee for four semester hours or less; each hour $ 5.00 

Fee for five or six semester hours 20.00 

Special Fees for All Students 

Matriculation fee $ 5.00 

Library fee 3.00 

Laboratory Fees 

In laboratory courses special laboratory fees amounting to 
$5.00 per semester course are charged. A laboratory break- 
age deposit of $1.00 is also required for each semester lab- 
oratory course. 

ROOM AND BOARD 

Students can obtain comfortable room accommodations 
in the college dormitories for $10.00 a term. The cafeteria 
is operated during the summer months and students can ob- 
tain excellent meals there for approximately $20.00 per term.

138 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

EVENING DIVISION 

General Statement 

Millsaps College aims, through its Evening Division, to 
serve the many mature individuals of Jackson and vicinity 
who are interested in furthering their education but who find 
it impossible to register for college courses taught in the day 
time. Students registering for work in the Evening Division 
have the advantages of instruction by members of the regu- 
lar college faculty as well as use of the college classrooms, 
laboratories, and library. 

Admission 

All persons qualified by training or experience to pursue 
with advantage any courses offered will be permitted to regis- 
ter for evening courses. 

Individuals who satisfy the requirements for regular ad- 
mission to Millsaps College (as stated elsewhere in this cata- 
log) may receive full credit for all work done toward degree 
requirements. 

Students wishing to register for college credit should 
send a transcript to the Registrar. This transcript should 
show the college entrance units earned in high school, or the 
work satisfactorily completed at another college. Students 
who register before receipt of their transcripts by the Regis- 
trar will be admitted tentatively, pending receipt and evalua- 
tion of the transcript. 

Credits earned may be transferred with full value to oth- 
er similar institutions of higher learning. Millsaps College 
is a standard "A" grade college in every particular. 

Times and Places of Classes 
In most courses classes will meet one evening each week 
in the regular classrooms (or laboratories) on the college 
campus. They will begin at 7:00 P.M. and continue for a 
period of two hours and a half. (This is equivalent to the 
class time for three hour credit courses in the day schedule.) 
Specific information as to day of week and hour may be found 
with each course description in the Evening Division Bulle- 
tin. The Evening Division courses are run concurrently with 
the semesters of the regular day schedule. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 139 

Fees and Expenses 

Tuition is charged at the rate of five dollars per semes- 
ter hour of credit. Special students and auditors are charged 
at the same rate. 

All fees are due at the beginning of the semester, and 
payment must be completed by October 15 for the first se- 
mester and March 1 for the second semester, unless arrange- 
ments are made with the Bursar. No refund will be made 
for withdrawals after these dates. If payment of accounts 
is deferred longer than thirty days after date of registration, 
a deferred payment fee of one dollar is charged for each 
course for which payment is deferred. 

Additional fees are charged for materials, laboratory sup- 
plies, etc., in certain courses. Where such special fees are 
charged a note to that effect will be found with the descrip- 
tion of the course in the Evening Division Bulletin. 

Courses Offered 

Evening courses offered during the 1940-41 college year 
included: 

General Botany Psychology of Personality 

Personal Finance Psychology In Business and
