MiLLSAPS College 

Jackson, Mississippi 

The Fifty-eightli Session Begins 


Experience indicates that those who examine college cata- 
logs are usually interested primarily in finding the answers to 
the following questions : 

(1) What is the general nature, type, and standing of the college ? 

(2) What are the requirements for admission? 

(3) What is the cost of attending the college and what oppor- 
tunities are available for earning part of these expenses? 

(4) What subjects of study are provided and what are the re- 
quirements for graduation? 

(5) What rules does a student have to follow while attending the 
college ? 

(6) What other activities are provided outside the classroom? 

(7) What physical equipment and financial resources does the 
college have? 

In order to make this catalog easier to read, we have tried 
to arrange it so as to answer these questions in logical order. The 
first two questions, which are of concern primarily to prospec- 
tive students, are answered in Part I. The other questions are 
covered successively in Parts II-VI, as shown in the Table of 
Contents on the opposite page. In Part VII we have given the 
necessary information with regard to the trustees, officers, and 
faculty, and have listed the names of other staff personnel and 
of the members of the student body. 

This catalog is primarily a record of the 1948-49 session of 
the college. The schedule of classes and academic calendar of the 
1949-50 session will be found in the back.

"To be at home in all lands and ages ; to count 
Nature a familiar acquaintance and Art a familiar 
friend ; to gain a standard for the appreciation of 
other men's work and the criticism of one's own; 
to make friends among men and women of one's 
own age who are to be leaders in all walks of life ; 
to lose one's self in generous enthusiasm and to co- 
operate with others for common ends ; to learn 
manners from students who are gentlemen and 
gentlewomen, and to form character under pro- 
fessors who are Christian — these are the returns 
of a college for the best four years of one's life." 

— President Hyde, Bowdoin College.

is a church related college 

under the joint care and control of the Mississippi and North Missis- 
sippi Conferences of the Methodist Church. The college is non-sectarian 
but devoutly Christian. During the 19 48-49 session it numbered in its 
student body members of thirteen denominations and in its faculty mem- 
bers of four denominations. It is dedicated to the idea that education 
is an integral part of the Christian religion, that religion is a vital part 
of education, and that church-related colleges, providing a sound educa- 
tional program in a Christian environment, afford a special type of train- 
ing and influence which no other institution can offer. The existence 
side by side of educational institutions related to the church, the state, 
and private agencies, each with its own functions to perform, is not only 
evidence of democracy in our educational system, but is also the best 
possible guarantee of the preservation of democracy in our civilization. 

is a small college 

with enrollment limited to 800 students. The close personal relation- 
ship that exists among students, faculty, and administration in the small 
college is one of the most vital parts of the college experience. 

is a co-educational college 

with an enrollment approximately two-thirds men and one-third 
women. Boys and girls study together throughout grammar school and 
high school. Men and women work together throughout later life. They 
study and work together at Millsaps. 

is a liberal arts college 

with the primary aim of training its students for responsible citizen- 
ship and well-rounded lives rather than for narrow professional careers. 
One of the chief curses of our modern society is that so many of our 
people are expert lawyers, or doctors, or business men, or brick layers, 
without at the same time being good citizens. More than any other 
institution, the liberal arts college can remedy this defect by training 
its students, in whatever field of specialization they may choose, to be 
community leaders in responsible citizenship. 

offers professional and pre-professional training 

balanced by cultural and disciplinary studies. The college recognizes 
that in the modern world training which will enable a person to support 
himself adequately is an essential part of a well-rounded education. There- 
fore, the student at Millsaps can, for example, obtain the necessary courses 
to prepare him directly for a business career or for service in education, 
the ministry, or social work; he can study music as preparation for pro- 
fessional work in the field, as well as for its esthetic and cultural value; 
he can become proficient in shorthand and typewriting while at the same 
time studying language and literature; and he can obtain thoroughly 
sound basic courses which will prepare him for professional study in 
medicine, dentistry, law, and other fields. Professional leaders in all 
fields are coming more and more to recognize that the most valuable 
members of their profession are those who have had something more in 
their background of training than the narrow technical study necessary 
for proficiency in that field. 

attempts to select its students carefully 

not on the basis of ability to pay or previous opportunities or charm 
of personality, but on ability to think, desire to learn, good moral character, 
and intellectual maturity. The primary consideration in acting on all 
applications for admission is the ability to do college work in a measure 
satisfactory to the college and beneficial to the student. Tuition is kept 
low enough to make higher education available to all, but an attempt 
is made to keep admission requirements high enough to exclude those 
who cannot profit from it. 

has a cosniopolitan student body 

representing a wide geographical area. During the 1948-49 session 
eighteen states and four foreign countries were represented in the student 
body. It is the policy of the college to encourage by scholarships and 
otherwise the attendance of foreign students, because of the mutual 
contribution this can make to international good will and understanding. 

is ideally located 

in the capital city of the state. Many educational advantages may 
be found in Jackson in addition to the courses offered at the college. 
The State Department of Archives and History, the State Library, the 
Library of the State Department of Health, and the Jackson Public 
Library provide research facilities found nowhere else in the state. The 
Jackson Symphony Orchestra, Jackson Little Theater, and numerous 
musical, dramatic, and sporting events staged at the City Auditorium 
add materially to the cultural advantages available to the student. 

is fully accredited 

by all appropriate standardizing and accrediting agencies, both 
regional and national, and is recognized by the General Board of Christian 
Education of the Methodist Church as one of the strongest institutions 
in the connection. 

Millsaps is fully approved by: 

The Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools 

The Association of American Universities 

The American Association of University Women 

The University Senate of the Methodist Church 

Millsaps shares in current educational thought through membership 

The Association of American Colleges 

The American Council on Education 

The National Conference of Church-Related Colleges 

The Association of Methodist Schools and Colleges 

The Southern University Conference 

The Mississippi Association of Colleges 

The American Conference of Academic Deans 

The American Association of Collegiate Registrars 

The Southern Association of College and University Business Officers 



General Requirements 

Millsaps College will accept as members of its student body only young 
men and women who are well qualified to benefit from the kind of 
academic life offered by the college. All applicants for admission must 
furnish evidence of 

1. Good moral character 

"' 2. Sound physical and mental health 

3. Adequate scholastic preparation 

4. Intellectual maturity 

V Admission to Freshman Standing 

Application for admission to freshman standing may be made accord- 
ing to either of the following plans: 

1. By Certificate (When one has earned fifteen or more high school units) : 

Graduates of an accredited high school or secondary school may 
be admitted to freshman standing on presentation of a certificate 
signed by the proper authorities of that school, showing the kind and 
amount of scholastic work done, provided that: 

(a) The student's record shows the satisfactory completion of at least 
fifteen acceptable units of secondary school work. (A unit 
means a subject of study pursued through a session of nine 
months with recitations five times a week, an average of forty- 
five minutes being devoted to each recitation). 

(b) One-half of the units of secondary school work accepted for 
entrance must be in English, mathematics, and social studies or 
foreign language. These units should normally include three 
units of English, two units in mathematics, and at least two units 
of history, other social studies, or foreign language. 

2. By Examination. 

Students who have not regularly prepared for college in a 
recognized secondary school may apply for admission by making 
complete statement regarding qualifications and training. Such 
students may be regularly admitted if they qualify in a battery 
of achievement examinations given at the college under the di- 
rection of the Department of Education. These examinations are 
given on the scholastic work covered by the list of secondary 
units approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and 
Secondary Schools. 

College Entrance Board Examination certificates may be ac- 
cepted in place of high school certificates or examination by 
Millsaps College. 


Admission To Advanced Standing 

1. Millsaps College normally allows full credit to transfer students on 
work taken at other accredited institutions. Some courses which are 
not regarded as consistent with a liberal arts curriculum, however, may 
not be credited toward a degree. 

2. Students with good records at non-accredited institutions may be ad- 
mitted on probation, and the work done at such institutions will be 
validated if the student makes a satisfactory record the first year at 

3. A maximum of 64 semester hours of credit will be allowed from a 
junior college. 

4. Full credit is allowed for all junior college academic courses of fresh- 
man and sophomore level and full elective credit allowed for other 
courses, with the proviso that junior college transfers may be called 
upon to do extra work necessary to fulfill the requirements at Millsaps 
for majors, for pre-professional work, and for professional teaching 

5. Grades and quality points made by students at other institutions will 
be recorded on their records at Millsaps, but students graduating after 
September 1, 1949, will be required to include in the 120 quality points 
required for graduation quality points earned at Millsaps at least equal 
in number to the number of hours credit remaining on their graduation 
requirement after the transfer credits are entered. 

6. In the case of students transferring to Millsaps with more than 3 but 
less than 6 hours credit in a required subject, the head of the depart- 
ment concerned is authorized to approve a 3-hour elective in that de- 
partment as a substitute for the remainder of the required course. 

7. Credit will not be given for work done by correspondence. 

Admission As Special Student 

1. A special student is one who enrolls for less than 12 hours of work 
per semester or one who has previously received a baccalaureate de- 

2. For admission as a special student the candidate must be at least 21 
years of age and must present adequate proof of good character and of 
maturity of training. 

.3. Special students may enroll for whatever courses they desire without 
regard to graduation requirements, but must in all cases meet the pre- 
requisite requirements for the courses elected by them. 

4. No special student shall be recognized as a candidate for any degree 
unless he shall have completed all entrance requirements at least one 
year before the date of graduation. 

5. Special students are not permitted to represent the college in inter- 
collegiate activities. 



All persons not in residence at Millsaps during the preceding regular 
semester must apply to the Admissions Committee and be accepted prior 
to registration for the fall and spring semesters. 

A prospective student should apply for admission well in advance of 
the date on which he wishes to enter, particularly if housing accommoda- 
tions on the campus are desired. The Admissions Committee begins act- 
ing on applications for the fall semester in February and on applications 
for the spring semester in November. 

In applying for admission a prospective student should follow the 
procedure described below: 

1. He should request an application blank from the Dean, who is chair- 
man of the Admissions Committee. 

2. He should fill out this application blank and return it to the Dean. 

3. He should have a letter of recommendation sent to the Dean by an 
appropriate official of the school or schools he has previously attend- 
ed, attesting to his character and ability. 

4. He should have his high school principal or college registrar send an 
official transcript of his credits directly to the Dean. A separate 
transcript is required from every secondary school or college attended, 
even though credits previously earned are included on the transcript 
from the school last attended. A student who has already earned some 
college credit, however, need not have a separate transcript of his 
high school credits sent if these are included on his college tran- 
script, v.. 

If the prospective student is in school at the time he applies for ad- 
mission, he should have a transcript sent showing his credits up to that 
time. If he is accepted, a supplementary transcript will be required later 
showing the completion of his work. 


Each new student at Millsaps is assigned to a member of the faculty, 
who serves as adviser for that student. Efforts are made to give guidance 
in registration and adjustment to the college community, and to give 
counsel in dealing with personal problems as they arise. When the stu- 
dent chooses his field of major study in his sophomore or junior year, 
his major professor automatically becomes his faculty adviser. Tests, 
and other personal data are used as a background for these counseling ac- 
tivities, which are continued throughout the student's college program. 

A "Freshman Week" program is scheduled each year to assist new 
students in becoming oriented to college life. The program includes sev- 
eral psychological tests, tours about the campus and instruction in the 
use of the library, talks on study methods and problems of adjustment to 
college, and informal social contacts for the freshmen with each other. 


with certain committees of upper-class students, and with the faculty. Its 
chief purpose, however, is to give guidance in registration and educational 
planning. Attendance at the Freshman Week program is required of all 
entering freshman students. 


Experience has demonstrated that the accomplishments of students in 
their college work can be materially improved by improving their reading 
skills and that it is possible through directed practice to increase the read- 
ing speed of almost anyone. This is true of superior students as well as 
of their slower fellows. 

In accordance with these findings, the college has set up a Reading 
Clinic, which operates separately from but in cooperation with the program 
in Freshman English. Members of the faculty specially trained in this 
field supervise this work. 

Students may utilize the services of the clinic on a voluntary basis. 
Instruction is given in small groups for a period of several weeks, and 
individual attention is given to each student's particular difficulties. Drills 
in vocabulary building and practice in rapid reading are provided, and 
tests are made at intervals of each student's reading speed and compre- 


Physical examinations are required of all new students as a part of 
the orientation program. These examinations are for the benefit of the 
student and for protection of the other members of the college com- 
munity. They include chest x-rays, tests of vision, hearing, blood pres- 
sure, heart, dental examination, and other tests. No extra charge is made 
for these examinations. 

Important physical impairments requiring correction which are 
revealed by these tests are called to the student's attention, and the 
records of the examinations are available to the instructors in Physical 
Education, the college nurse, and to the administrative officials of the 

While the student is in residence every effort is made to protect his 
health and to promote his physical development. The work of the Physical 
Education Department, the intramural sports program, and the recreation- 
al facilities available on the campus contribute toward this end. 

The college has set up a fully equipped infirmary with a registered 
nurse in attendance at all times to look after the health of the students. 
Space is available to isolate students with communicable illness in order 
that the health of other students living in the dormitories and fraternity 
houses may not be jeopardized. This service is paid for by a medical fee 
of $3.00 per semester charged to all boarding students. 

The college physician makes regular visits to the infirmary at pre- 
arranged hours, and is subject to call by the nurse at other times when

The following regulations, adopted by the Finance Committee, are 
not subject to change, even by the President or Business Manager. 

PAYMENTS. — All charges are due and payable at the opening of 
the semester. No student will be marked present in his classes until pay- 
ment has been made in the Business Office or satisfactory financial ar- 
rangements have been made with the Business Manager of the college. 
It is recommended that students pay the $105.00 board in advance at the 
beginning of each semester and pick up meal books from the Business 
Office as needed. Students may, however, pay their board during the 
semester in $15.00 installments, except that the first such installment 
must be paid at the beginning of the semester. If the minimum of $105.00 
per semester board is exceeded in the cafeteria, students may pay addi- 
tional board in the Business Office in installments of $5.00 or $15.00 as 
they desire. Meal Books are used for the convenience of the students 
and are not transferable. 

The fee for late registration is $1.50; this applies to any student 
registering after the last day officially set for registration. A delayed 
payment fee of $1.50 will be charged all accounts for the semester which 
are settled later than the final date officially set for payment. A student 
will not be charged a delayed payment fee if he pays a late registration 

Any accounts due for any preceding semester must be paid before a 
student will be enrolled for the succeeding semester. The Registrar is not 
permitted to transfer credits until all outstanding indebtedness to the 
college is paid in the Business Office. 

No student will be allowed to graduate unless he shall have settled 
with the Business Office, one month before commencement, all his in- 
debtedness to the college including graduation fee of $15.00. 

VETERANS' PAYMENTS. — Veterans attending school under the 
Veterans' Bill of Rights will pay only the charges for room rent and board. 
All other expenses will be borne directly by the Federal Government. 

rooming in fraternity houses are required to eat in the college cafeteria. 
Rules regarding payment of board and medical fees applicable to other 
students will be observed by the students rooming in fraternity houses. 

REFUNDS. — Room rent cannot be refunded after the semester has 
begun. Board will be refunded pro rata for the unexpired time. A stu- 
dent who withdraws with good reason within two weeks after the date of 
his registration will be entitled to a refund of 80% of tuition and fees; 
within three weeks, 60% ; within four weeks 40% ; and within five weeks, 
20%. If a student remains in college as much as five weeks, no refund 
will be made except for board. 


CHANGE OF SCHEDULE REFUNDS. — No reduction of fees or tu- 
ition will be allowed for any course dropped after two weeks from the 
date of registration in it. 

The date of withdrawal from which all claims to reductions and re- 
funds will be referred is the date on which the Registrar is officially 
notified by the student of his intention to withdraw from college. (See 
regulations relative to withdrawals). 

AUDITING OF COURSES. — Courses are audited only with approval 
of the Dean. There will be no charge to a full-time student except labora- 
tory fee for auditing any course. Special students taking other courses 
may audit one course without charge except for the payment of a labora- 
tory fee that may be involved. A person not enrolled in any courses for 
college credit will be allowed to audit courses on payment of the tuition 
for Special Students and any laboratory fees that may be involved; no 
other fees will be charged. A student auditing the classroom work of a 
course and not auditing the laboratory work will not be considered as hav- 
ing a laboratory fee involved. A student auditing a course in which the 
laboratory work and classroom work cannot be separated will be required 
to pay the laboratory fee. 


The student activities fee of $4.50 paid by a student at the beginning 
of each semester is distributed among the different organizations existing 
on the campus. The distribution of this fee is made on the recommenda- 
tion of the Student Executive Board. 

The student activities fee is distributed among organizations such as 
the Y. M. C. A., Y. W. C. A., The Student Association, Debate Club, Band, 
Glee Club, Dramatics, Purple & White, Bobashela, and The Woman's As- 
sociation. That part of the fee assigned the Bobashela is a part payment 
for the student year book. The portion designated for the PURPLE & 
WHITE gives each student a year's subscription to the college weekly 


Establishment of a carefully planned and effectively administered 
physical education program has now been effected by the college. In re- 
turn for a physical education fee of $6.00 per semester the student receives 
the advantages afforded by the gymnasium as well as the supervision of a 
highly trained physical education instructor, who will plan a complete 
program of intramural athletics. Each student will also receive locker 
and towel service without additional charge.

8. Comprehensive E.vaininations: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student must pass a satis- 
factory comprehensive examination in his major field of study. This ex- 
amination is given in the senior year and is intended to cover subject mat- 
ter greater in scope than a single course or series of courses. The purpose 
of the comprehensive examination is to coordinate the class work with 
independent reading and thinking in such a way as to relate the knowl- 
edge acquired and give the student a general understanding of the field 
which could not be acquired from individual courses. 

Regularly scheduled conferences between department heads and stu- 
dents majoring in the department will be held throughout the senior year. 
The comprehensive examination requires at least three hours and is part 
written and part oral, the division of time between the two to be at the 
discretion of the members of the department concerned. The oral ex- 
amination will be conducted by a committee composed of members of the 
department and, if desired by the department, one or more members of 
the faculty from other departments or other qualified persons. 

The time of the comprehensive examination given in the spring 
semester is the first week in May of each year. Comprehensive examina- 
tions will not be given during the summer except by permission of the 

Those who fail a comprehensive examination may have an opportunity 
to take another examination after the lapse of two months. If the stu- 
dent fails the second comprehensive, he may not have another until he 
has taken at least one additional semester's work in Millsaps College. 


A regular student will be required to enroll for English, Mathematics, 
and Foreign Language each year until he has completed the degree re- 
quirements in these subjects. This rule does not apply to the summer 
session, or to students entering the second semester if the appropriate 
courses are not offered at that time.

A teacher placement bureau for teachers is maintained under the di- 
rection of the Department of Education. It seeks to further the interests 
of teachers trained at Millsaps College and to be of service to school offi- 
cials who wish to secure efficient teachers. 


students at Millsaps College are permitted to enroll for one or more 
courses at Belhaven College as a part of their regular program of studies. 
The two colleges are located only a few blocks apart, and the schedules 
have been coordinated so as to make possible this exchange of students 
between the two campuses. 

As a result of this policy, students now have a wider range of depart- 
mental and course offerings from which to choose. For example, a stu- 
dent at Millsaps wishing to take courses in Home Economics might obtain 
such courses on the Belhaven campus while pursuing a regular course of 
study leading towards a Millsaps degree. 

There is also a sharing of the physical and other facilities of the two 
schools. Students at each institution may check out books from either of 
the college libraries. The Belhaven swimming pool and the Millsaps golf 
course are available to students of both schools. 

The following courses not offered at Millsaps during the 19 49-50

The ideas and culture of Greece and Rome live on today in their 
contributions to the culture of Western Civilization. Intimate contact with

Part IV 

Administration of 
The Curriculum 




The grade of the student in any class is determined by the combined 
class standing and the result of a written examination. The examination 
grade is counted as approximately one-third of the grade for the semester. 
"A" represents superior work, largely of a creative nature and in addi- 
tion to the regularly prescribed work of the class. 
"B" represents above the average achievement in the regularly prescribed 

"C" represents the average achievement of the class in regularly prescribed 

"D" represents 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 is changed to a "D" if the grade in the 

other semester of the course is "C" or above, providing that the 

"E" precedes the higher grade on the student's record. 
"F" represents failure to do the regularly prescribed work of the class. 

All marks of "D" and above are passing marks and "F" represents 

"WP" indicates that the student has withdrawn from the course while 

passing, and "WF" means that he has withdrawn while failing. 
"I" indicates that the work is incomplete and is changed to "F" if the 

work is not completed by the end of the following semester. 

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 ad- 
vancement from one class to the next higher class. The completion of any 
academic course with a grade of "C" for one semester shall entitle a stu- 
dent 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 for each semester hour. 

The following number of hours and quality points are required: 1 

For sophomore rating 24 hours; 9 quality points ; 

For junior rating 52 hours; 36 quality points 

For senior rating 90 hours; 72 quality points 

For graduation 128 hours; 120 quality points 

A student's classification for the entire year is on the basis of his 

status at the beginning of the fall semester. 

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 academic hours taken. 


A student whose quality point index is 2.0 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 comprehensive 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. 

In determining eligibility for honors or high honors in the case of 
students who have not done all their college work at Millsaps, the quality 
points earned on the basis of grades made at other institutions will be 
considered, but the student will be considered eligible only if he has the 
required index both on the work done at Millsaps and on his college courses 
as a whole. 

Those meeting the following requirements are honored by inclusion 
on the Dean's List: 

1. Scholarship: 

(a) The student must carry not less than four literary subjects 
during the semester on which the scholastic average is based; 

(b) The student must have a quality point average for the preced- 
ing semester of 2.00; 

(c) The student must have no mark lower than a D for the pre- 
ceding semester. 

2. Conduct: 

The student shall be, in the judgment of the deans, a good citizen 
of the college community. 

Reports are sent at the close of each nine weeks to the parent or 
guardian of each student. These reports indicate, as nearly as practicable, 
the nature of the progress made by the student in his work at the college. 


Fifteen academic semester hours is considered the normal load per 

No student may take more than seventeen semester hours of aca- 
demic work unless he has a quality index of 1.5 on the latest previous col- 
lege term or semester. No student may take more than nineteen semester 
hours of academic work unless he has a quality point index of 2.00 on the 
latest previous college term or semester, and obtains permission from the 
Dean. No student may receive credit for more than twenty-one hours in a 
semester under any circumstances. 

Freshmen in the lowest classification group will not be allowed to 
take more than twelve semester hours of academic work in their first 
semester except by special permission of the Dean of Freshmen. 

Any student who is permitted to take more than seventeen s'emester 
hours of work will be required to pay at the rate of $5.00 for each addi- 
tional semester hour over seventeen. 




If a student is absent seven times in a tliree-hour course meeting on 
Monday, Wednesday, Friday or five times in a three-hour course meeting 
on Tuesday, Thursday, or a proportionate number in a course giving other 
credit, all credit in that course is lost unless five or more of the seven 
absences (or three or more of the five absences) were due to illness, vouch- 
ed for by a physician or college official, or were approved by the Dean in 
advance as provided in the next paragraph below. In case of loss of 
credit because of excessive absence, three quality points will be deducted 
from the total already earned. No class absences are excused. Absences 
for the two days before and the two days following college holidays shall 
count double. 

Absences from class on college business under the supervision of an 
authorized instructor shall not be counted against the student on loss of 
credit. Such absences shall be reported to the Dean of the college. This 
report must be made in writing, previous to the absence. 

Three tardies shall be counted as one absence. 

If a student is absent from an assigned test, he must obtain written 
permission from the Dean in order to take a make-up test. 

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 ab- 
sence 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, to be held within six weeks of 
the opening of the subsequent semester. 

Attendance at chapel is required of all students one day each week. 
Students who absent themselves from chapel more than two times a 
semester without adequate excuse will be required to appear before the 
Advisory Committee for disciplinary action. 


A student cannot change classes or drop classes or take up new 
classes except by the consent of the Dean, his faculty adviser, and all fac- 
ulty members concerned. Courses dropped within the first two weeks of a 
semester do not appear on the student's record. Courses dropped after 
the first two weeks and before the middle of a semester are recorded as 
WP (withdrawn passing) or WF (withdrawn failing). Courses dropped 
after the middle of a semester are recorded as failures. If a student 
drops a course at any time without securing the required approvals, his 
grade will be recorded as failure, and in addition three quality points will 
be deducted from the total previously earned. 


A student desiring to withdraw from college within any term must 
procure permission from the Dean of the college. A withdrawal card 
shall be filled out and must be approved by the Dean and the Registrar. 


No refund will be considered unless this written notice is procured and 
presented to the Business Office. 

Refunds upon withdrawal will be made only as outlined elsewhere in 
this catalog under the heading of "Financial Regulations." 

Enforced withdrawal is inflicted by the faculty for habitual delin- 
quency in class, habitual idleness, or any other fault which prevents the 
student from fulfilling the purpose for which he should 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 portion of tuition will be return- 
ed, except that students withdrawing under discipline forfeit the right to 
a refund for any charges. 

No student who withdraws from college for whatever reason is en- 
titled to a report card or to a transcript of credits until he shall have 
settled his account in the Business Office. 

A student who withdraws from college after the first two weeks of a 
semester is recorded as WP (withdrawn passing) or WF (withdrawn fail- 
ing) in each course. 


To remain in college a freshman must pass in the first semester six 
hours of academic work. 

After the first half year a student must pass at least nine hours of 
academic work each semester to continue in college. 

Students who are requested not to re-enter because of academic fail- 
ure may petition the Advisory Committee in writing for readmission, but 
such petition will not be granted unless convincing evidence is presented 
that the failure was due to unusual causes of a non-recurring nature and 
that the student will maintain a satisfactory record during the subsequent 


Students who pass enough work to remain in college but make in any 
semester a quality index of less than 0.5 will be placed on probation. 
Other students may be placed on probation in the discretion of the re- 
spective Deans or the Advisory Committee. 

Reports of academic standing of students on probation will be se- 
cured from each instructor by the appropriate Dean at least once a month. 
On the basis of such reports, the appropriate Dean or the Advisory Com- 
mittee may limit or prohibit the student's participation in extra-curricular 
activities or impose other appropriate regulations. 

In order to be removed from probation, a student must make a qual- 
ity index of 1.00 during a regular semester. 


The rules of the college require from every student decorous, sober, 
and upright conduct as long as he remains a member of the college, 
whether he be within its precincts or not. 

Regulations governing the conduct of students are found in the hand- 
book. Students are expected to familiarize themselves with the regula- 

Part V 

Campus Activities 



Millsaps College, as an institution of the Methodist Church, seeks to 
be a genuinely Christian college. 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. 

The students are urged 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 business of college-wide concern. 


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 various religious activities of the college are 
correlated and unified by the Millsaps Christian Council, composed of 
representatives of all organized religious groups on the campus. This 
council sponsors delegations of students to the summer conferences of 
the church at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina, and to the Methodist State 
Student Conference. 


The College Y. M. C. A., which was organized shortly after the col- 
lege was founded, tries to strengthen the spiritual life and influence of 
the college and its members. The association shares vitally in the college 
program for the adjustment of freshmen to the Millsaps community. 
Delegations of members represent the association at state, regional, and 
Blue Ridge, North Carolina, conferences each year. 

The Y. W. C. A. provides expression for the religious interests 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 orientation of new students in campus life. Repre- 
sentatives of the association participate in all of the conferences of the 
Y. W. C. A., and the Christian Student Movement. 

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 pro 
vides opportunity for Christian service for its members and contributes 
much to the religious life of the campus and of the local churches. 


Baptist students at Millsaps belong to the Baptist Student Union, 
which was organized in 1938. 

Presbyterian students belong to the Westminster League, which was 
organized in 1946. 


Episcopal students belong to the Canterbury Club, which was organ- 
ized in 1947. 

Methodist students are members of the Wesleyan Group, recently 

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 outstanding religious leader,- familiar with student 
life and problems, addresses the student body and various groups of stu- 
dents 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; 
Dr. G. Ray Jordan, of Charlotte, North Carolina; Dr. Roy M. Smith, editor 
of the Chicago Christian Advocate; Dr. W. B. Selah, formerly of Oklahoma, 
now of Galloway Memorial, Jackson, Mississippi, and Rev. Ellis Finger of 
Oxford. Mississippi. - ■ . • 


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

Purposes of the Millsaps sports program are: 

1. To stimulate better personal strength and health habits through 
the medical examination and physical exercises. 

2. To provide instruction and participation for all in a variety of 
clean, wholesome sports. 


In the desire to have a "sports for all" program, the college sponsors 
intramural activities in baseball, basketball, touch football, golf, soft- 
ball, track, tennis, and volley ball. 

The intramural organization is made up of members of each fra- 
ternity or independent group on the campus. 

Cups are awarded to championship squads in these activities. 
The athletic department offers its facilities to students and faculty 
for individual or group use at any time. These facilities include five tennis 
courts, soft ball fields, football field, running track, and gymnasium. 


An intercollegiate athletic program is provided by the college and 
is conducted on a purely amateur basis. The program includes football, 
basketball, baseball, tennis, and track. No athletic scholarships are given, 
and the athletes are not subsidized in any way. 


Women's athletics are encouraged for the reason that when propeny 
regulated they tend to promote both the physical and moral well-being 
of the students and to foster a wholesome college spirit. 


Millsaps does not sponsor intercollegiate athletics for women. The 
desire is to have a program in which all girls may participate. The 
intramural program satisfies this need. The sororities and the Vikings 
form the teams that compete in these activities, which include archery, 
ping-pong, volleyball, basketball, softball, golf, and tennis.

built and is for use by all students. 



Four national fraternities — Kappa Alpha, Kappa Sigma, Pi Kappa 
Alpha, and Lambda Chi Alpha — have chapters on the Millsaps campus. 
These social clubs maintain houses in which some of their members reside. 
A local fraternity — Phi Alpha — petitioning a prominent national, also 
operates on the campus. 

During the first week of the school year, each fraternity extends in- 
vitations to new students, bidding them to membership in the organiza- 
tion. The new men are given an opportunity during this "rush" period to 
become acquainted with fraternities, and at the end of this time bids 
are extended and the new students are pledged. While pledging is not 
allowed for the first week of school, a fraternity may extend an invitation 
to join at any other time during the year. 


Millsaps College has four national sororities: Phi Mu, Kappa Delta, 
Beta Sigma Omicron, and Chi Omega. 

Formal rushing for new students takes place at the beginning of the

agreed upon. Informal rushing is allowed throughout the year according 
to the desires of the various groups.

With material and inspirational support from Major Reuben Webster 
Millsaps, the Mississippi conferences of the Methodist church resolved in 
1888 to establish a college for men. Four years later, with four professors 
and a handful of students, Millsaps opened its doors in Jackson. Coedu- 
cation was instituted in the seventh session. 

Presidents of the college have been W. B. Murrah, D.D., LL.D., (189 2- 
1910) : D. C. Hull, M.A., (1910-1912) ; A. F. Watkins, D.D., (1912-1923) : 
D. M. Key, Ph.D., LL.D., (1923-1938). Dr. M. L. Smith, Ph.D., LL.D., has 
been president since 193 8. 

For the first 25 years attendance fluctuated between 100 and 200 
students. By 1928-1929 Millsaps had 400 students, and during the Navy 
V-12 program, 600. Since the war, Millsaps has had approximately 800 


The campus, covering nearly 100 acres in the center of a beautiful resi- 
dential section and on one of the highest points in the city, is valued 
in excess of one and one-quarter million dollars. 

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 Gymnasium in 1936. Recent grants 
and gifts have made possible the addition of completely modern equipment 
for the science laboratories and the extension of the library stacks. 

A new and completely modern home for the President was constructed 
in 1949. Work is now in progress on the Christian Center Memorial 
Building, which was made possible by the gifts of Mississippi Methodists, 
alumni, and friends of the college. This building, which will cost approxi- 
mately $2 50,000, will contain an auditorium seating more than 1000 per- 
sons, the largest stage in the city of Jackson, a small chapel and library 
for the Department of Religion, classrooms, and offices. A completely new 
system of driveways through the campus is also under construction. 

The James Observatory provides excellent facilities for students of 
astronomy and is also made available on frequent occasions to the citizens 
of Jackson and surrounding areas. 

Elsinore Hall houses the Music Department of the college. 

The campus contains two fields for football and baseball, a track, 
tennis courts, and a nine-hole golf course. 

Dormitory facilities are available for both men and women students. 
Founders and Whitworth Halls are the women's dormitories. Galloway, 
Burton, and Woollard Halls house men students. 

Beginning with the fifty-fifth session of the college, the United States 
government placed on the south end of the campus thirty-two trailers and 
two prefabricated units to provide housing for married veterans. 



The productive endowment, according to the last audit, amounted to 
$1,184,264.87. In addition to the income from this endowment, the col- 
lege budget receives pro rata share of conference assessments amounting 
to $12,000 annually. The statement of total assets derived from the last 
official audit, June 30, 1948, is as follows: 

Current Funds $ 180,503.73 

Loan Funds - -— 10,335.39

Millsaps College has been selected as one of five colleges, with Tu- 
lane University as the center of an area including Texas, Louisiana, and 
Mississippi, to be the recipient of a research grant given by the Carnegie 
Foundation for the Improvement of Teaching. This grant amounts to 
$4,000 a year for five years, supplemented by $1,000 a year from the 
college budget. During the first two years of this grant more than twenty 
of the faculty have availed themselves of the opportunity to improve their 
teaching through special study and research work.

Near the close of the session of 1905-06 Andrew Carnegie offered to 
give the college $15,000 for a library building if the trustees would pro- 
vide an endowment of an equal amount. The endowment required was 
given by Major Millsaps. 

In 1925 the Carnegie Corporation appropriated $50,000 for a new 
library building. The present building was completed in 1926 and pro- 
vides shelves for 50,000 volumes. The furniture for the reading rooms 
was given by the Enochs Lumber and Manufacturing Company. In 1944 
the interior of the library was redecorated and in 1946 additional furniture 
was purchased. 


A special grant of $10,000 for the purchase of books was made by 
the Carnegie Corporation during the five years 1931-1936, and about 4,- 
600 volumes were added from this source. In 1944 the Rockefeller Foun- 
dation made a grant to the library of $15,000 for the purchase of books 
during the years 1944-1948. This sum was matched by the college by a 
like amount to be used for the enlargement and equipment of the library 
building. The General Board of Education of the Methodist Church pi'o- 
vided $2,500 for the purchase of additional stacks and equipment. 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. The Carnegie Foundation permits as much as $1,0 00 of its 
grant for the improvement of teaching through research to be used annu- 
ally to provide books needed for research projects. 

During the session of 1941-194 2 the Historical Society of the Missis- 
sippi Conference placed its valuable collection of books and papers relating 
to Mississippi Methodist history in a special room in the Ibrary. A collec- 
tion of documents, manuscripts, and books on Methodism in Mississippi 
has been begun, and gifts of material related to this subject will be es- 
pecially valuable. 

The library contains approximately 33,000 volumes. 

The library hours are: Monday through Friday, 8 to 5, 6 to 9:30; 
Saturday 8 to 4. The library is closed during the Thanksgiving, Christmas 
and spring holidays, and during the month between the close of the sum- 
mer school and the opening of the fall semester.
