FOREWORD 



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 1953-54 session of 
the college. The academic calendar of the 1954-55 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.

MILLSAPS 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 1953-5 4 session it numbered in its 
student body members of many denominations and in its faculty mem- 
bers of several 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. 



selects 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 cosmopolitan student body 

representing a wide geographical area. During the 19.5 3-.5 4 session 
sixteen states and five foreign countries were represented in the stu- 
dent 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, The Jackson Opera 
Guild, Inc., 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

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION 

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 

Admission to Freshman Standing 

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

1. By Certificate. 

Graduates of an accredited high school or secondary school may 
be admitted to freshman standing on presentation of a transcript 
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. 

(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 of mathematics, and at least two units 
of history, other social studies, or foreign language. 

(c) Not more than four vocational units may be included in those 
required for entrance. 

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 or the high 
school level General Educational Development Test may be ac- 
cepted in place of high school certificates or examination by 
Millsaps College. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 11 

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 
Millsaps. 

3. A maximum of 6 4 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 
licenses. 

5. After earning 64 semester hours of credit, at a senior or junior college, 
a student will not be granted any additional credit toward a degree at 
Millsaps for work done at a junior college. 

6. Grades and quality points made by students at other institutions will 
be recorded on their records at Millsaps, but transfer students 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 num- 
ber of hours of academic credit remaining on their graduation require- 
ment after the transfer credits are entered. 

7. 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. 

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

Adinission 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- 
gree. Students in their senior year taking all the work required to com- 
plete a degree are not considered special students, even though taking 
less than 12 hours. 

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 may be recognized as a candidate for a degree 
unless he completes all entrance requirements at least one year before 
the date of graduation. No college credit will be granted until entrance 
requirements are satisfied. 

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



12 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

HOW TO APPLY FOR ADMISSION 

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. 

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. 

COUNSELING PROGRAM 

The fundamental objective of all counseling services is to assist each 
student to be ready and able to accomplish maximum success in his aca- 
demic work. Consequently, every member of the college community par- 
ticipates in counseling, and specialists from the community are used as 
referral resources when the nature of a student's problem requires highly 
specialized therapy. Basically, the divisions of the counseling program 
are as follows: 

1. Faculty Advisers 

Each new student at Millsaps is assigned to a member of the faculty 
who serves as the adviser for that student with respect to his aca- 
demic program. At the time a student chooses his major field 
of study, his major professor automatically becomes his faculty 
adviser. 

2 . Orientation 

All beginning freshmen are expected to be on the campus by 8:00 
A. M. on September 7, 19 54, to participate in the orientation pro- 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 13 

gram. All transfer students will participate in a one-day orienta- 
tion program beginning at 8:30 A. M. on Thursday, September 9. 
This program is developed and executed cooperatively by students 
and faculty for the purpose of assisting students to be adequately 
prepared for entering fully into the college program. 

3. Pre-Registration Counseling 

In order to assist new and prospective students to plan wisely in 
looking toward their college careers, the college will provide coun- 
seling services to any prospective student who may desire to ex- 
plore his vocational and educational objectives before he enters his 
classes in the fall semester. 

4 . Personal Counseling 

Particular attention is given by the Dean of Students and the Dean 
of Women to counseling students on such matters as vocational 
choice, selection of fields of study, study skills, reading skills, emo- 
tional adjustment, and similar typical college student problems. 

5 . Testing 

Each student entering Millsaps takes part in the entrance testing 
program, which is designed to provide information that will assist 
the professional counseling staff to work effectively with him in 
planning his program and activities at the college. In addition, any 
student registered in the college has available to him individual 
testing services to assist him in self-analysis and planning in terms 
of his individual aptitudes, interests, and personality characteristics. 

STUDENT HOUSING 

The housing program of the college is coordinated by the Dean of 
Students and the Dean of Women in cooperation with the dormitory 
housemothers, counselors, and managers. All out-of-town students are 
expected to reside in the college housing facilities, unless they have re- 
ceived permission through the office of the Dean of Students to live in 
approved off-campus housing. Students who desire to live with relatives 
or friends while attending Millsaps must make this a matter of record 
in the office of the Dean of Students. 

Men students live in our three men's halls — Galloway, Burton, and 
Woollard — or in fraternity houses. Women students live in our three 
women's halls — Founders, Whitworth, and Sanders. All beginning fresh- 
men who are not residents of Jackson are required to live in the college 
dormitories during the entire first semester. No first-semester freshmen 
are permitted to live in fraternity houses. Any men or women students 
whose homes are in Jackson may live in the dormitories if space is avail- 
able, but will be placed only after out-of-town students have been assigned. 

Since no room deposit is required of applicants who have been ac- 
cepted, room assignments are made in the order in which students' $10.00 
classroom reservation fees have been received. If any student indicates a 
specific preference for a particular room or dormitory, he will be assigned 



14 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

to that space if it has not been taken previously by some one whose eligi- 
bility for the room entitles him to it. Students desiring to room together 
should make every effort to forward their reservation fees at the same 
time and specify their desire to room together. 

After notification of room assignment, a student must accept or re- 
ject the assignment in writing within two weeks of the notification. Room 
rent cannot be refunded after the semester has begun. 

DINING FACILITIES 

Boarding students eat their meals in the Galloway cafeteria. This 
dining room is under expert supervision and furnishes wholesome food at 
moderate rates. Board must be paid in the Business Office. Students 
rooming in fraternity houses are considered boarding students. The col- 
lege grill also is available for snacks and quick orders. 

STUDENT HEALTH PROGRAM 

The infirmary, centrally located on the campus and supervised by a 
registered nurse, is available to all resident students. The services of the 
college physician are available through the infirmary. Students with 
minor illnesses are cared for in the infirmary, while any students having 
major illnesses or needing hospital services return home or are referred 
to one of the local hospitals for treatment on a private-patient basis. In 
connection with the college program of preventive medicine, each new stu- 
dent is required to have his family physician complete and mail in a health 
record and physical examination form. This form is a required part of 
the registration procedure.

Graduation Fee 

Diploma, cap, gown, commencement expense .$15.00 

SPECIAL STUDENTS 

A special student is one who takes less than twelve semester hours of 
work for college credit or one who has already received a baccalaureate 
degree. Special students pay the following tuition rates plus any labora- 
tory fees involved. 

Tuition per semester hour: 

1 to 11 semester hours inclusive, per hour $13.00 

12 or more semester hours Full tuition and fees 

Students taking only music or art private lessons for college credit 
must pay a registration fee of $5 for each course plus the special fees for 
the courses taken. No other charge. 

EXCESS HOURS 

The normal student load is five subjects with either physical educa- 
tion or extra-curricular activities making a maximum of seventeen hours. 
Students registering for courses in excess of seventeen hours will be 
charged $7.50 for each additional hour per semester. 

NON-RESIDENT OR OUT-OP-STATE STUDENTS 

Tuition for non-resident or out-of-state students will be the custo- 
mary tuition plus $1.00 per semester hour. The low tuition at Millsaps Col- 
lege is possible in part because of the annual contributions of the two 
Methodist Conferences in Mississippi. It seems only fair, therefore, that 
students from other states v/ishing to utilize the educational facilities 
which these contributions help to provide should be asked to pay this ad- 
ditional amount above the regular tuition. 

Clarification of non-resident status: Students under twenty-one 
years of age use the legal residence of their families. Married students 
and students twenty-one years or over use the legal residence of their 
parents or guardians, or their legal residence immediately prior to regis- 
tration in a school in Mississippi. Children of parents stationed outside 
Mississippi but understood to be primarily residents or citizens of this 
state may be classified as residents. 

Aliens are classified as non-residents. 



REVISION OF CHARGES 

Millsaps College reserves the privilege of changing any or all 
charges at any time without notice. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 19

proval of the department. 

9. Comprehensive Examinations: 

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 in- 
dependent reading and thinking in such a way as to relate the knowledge 
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 exam- 
ination 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. 

A student may take the comprehensive examination only if the courses 
on which he has credit and in which he is currently enrolled complete the 
requirements in the major department. He may take the examination in 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 



31 



the spring semester if he will be within 21 hours of graduation by the end 
of that semester. In cases of necessity, the examination will be given in De- 
cember or January for students who meet the other requirements and who 
will not be in residence at Millsaps during the spring semester. 

The time of the comprehensive examination given in the spring semes- 
ter is the first week in May of each year. Comprehensive examinations will 
not be given during the summer except by permission of the Dean. 

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



COURSES REQUIRED FOR REGULAR STUDENTS 

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 ses- 
sion, or to students entering the second semester if the appropriate courses 
are not offered at that time.

Students who wish to prepare for a professional career in Social Work 
should plan a broad liberal arts program with a major in a social science. 
Because of the widely varied opportunities in this field, no specific sched- 
ule of courses is recommended for the junior and senior years. Instead, 
each student is urged to consult with his faculty adviser to plan a schedule 
especially adapted to individual objectives and aptitudes.

TEACHER TRAINING 

A placement bureau for teachers is maintained under the direction 
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 planning to teach in either the elementary or secondary 
school should follow exactly the appropriate sequence of courses outlined 
below. The requirements for teaching certificates are quite detailed and 
specific, and students must have the exact courses specified. The following 
course of study will meet the requirements for a Millsaps degree and at 
the same time qualify the student for the Class A Elementary Certificate 
and the Class A Secondary Certificate.

*If Latin or Greek is taken to meet the foreign language require- 
ment, Speech 11 and Biology 101 (Hygiene) may be substituted for Mathe- 
matics, but this will make it necessary for the student to take six hours of 
Geology, Chemistry, or Physics rather than three. This should be taken 
in the Sophomore year, which will leave room for a three-hour elective 
in the Junior year. 

**If the student has credit for two years of language in high school 
and continues the same language in college, this second year of language 
is not required.

Note: The student working for this degree will register as a regular 
Millsaps College student until his senior year. Then, although continuing 
to live on the Millsaps campus and enjoying all the privileges and responsi- 
bilities thereof, including fraternity or sorority membership, he will reg- 
ister at Belhaven College as a candidate for the Bachelor of Music degree. 
Credits in applied music will vary slightly depending on the major select- 
ed. Majors are offered In Piano, Voice, Violin, Band or Orchestra Instru- 
ment. All curricula meet the Mississippi State Department of Education 
requirements for the certification of music teachers. 

MILLSAPS-BELHAVEN COOPERATIVE PROGRAM 

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. Regular transportation is provided. 

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. 

UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI-MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

CENTER 

Inaugurated in the spring of 19 51, the University of Mississippi-Mill- 
saps College Center represents a cooperative effort of the two institutions 
to provide broader educational opportunities to the citizens of Jackson and 
the surrounding area. In addition to the two phases of the program de- 
scribed below, the curricula of the two schools are being coordinated in 
such a way as to make easier the transition from the pre-medical, pre- 
nursing, pre-engineering, pre-law, and other preparatory courses on the 
Millsaps Campus to the work for professional degrees in these fields of- 
fered by the University. Educators in such professional fields are becom- 
ing increasingly anxious for their students to have, as a background for 
their professional work, the broad liberal arts training which a curriculum 
such as that offered at Millsaps provides. 

GRADUATE STUDY PROGRAM 

Graduate credit will be granted by the University of Mississippi for 
certain courses offered on the Millsaps Campus. These courses are under 
the supervision of the Dean of the Graduate School of the University of 
Mississippi and are taught by regular members of the faculty of the Uni- 
versity and Millsaps. The credit granted is residence credit within limits 
which vary from course to course. 

ADULT EDUCATION PROGRA3I 

Late afternoon and evening courses are offered on the Millsaps cam- 
pus for the benefit of persons employed in the Jackson area. Resident un- 
dergraduate credit at either the University of Mississippi or Millsaps may 
be earned by students in these courses w^ho meet the entrance require- 
ments of either institution. The courses are taught by regular members 



40 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

of the Millsaps faculty and other qualified persons approved by both insti- 
tutions. The Millsaps library and laboratory facilities are available to stu- 
dents in these courses. Information as to specific courses offered and other 
matters may be obtained by addressing The Director, University of Missis- 
sippi-Millsaps College Center, Jackson 10, Mississippi. 

In-Service Training 

Industries in the Jackson area are provided an excellent means of em- 
ployee training through the specialized training programs set up by the 
University of Mississippi-Millsaps College Center. This training is avail- 
able in a wide range of subjects. Special courses can be arranged on a 
credit or non-credit basis. 

THE WASHINGTON SEMESTER 

"The Washington Semester" is a joint arrangement between The 
American University, Washington, D. C, Millsaps College, and sixteen 
other colleges and universities in the United States to extend the resources 
of the national capital to superior students in the field of the social 
sciences. The object is to provide a direct contact with the work of 
governmental departments and other national and international agencies 
that are located in Washington, thus acquainting the students with pos- 
sible careers in public service and imparting a knowledge of government 
in action. 

Under this arrangement qualified students of demonstrated capacity 
from the participating colleges will spend a semester at the School of 
Social Sciences and Public Affairs of the American University in Washing- 
ton. They will earn there fifteen hours toward graduation in their home 
colleges. In Washington the program is coordinated by staff members of 
The American University, assisted by a professor appointed for a single 
semester by one of the participating colleges. 

Millsaps will ordinarily send two students in each fall semester. These 
will be either juniors or first semester seniors and will be selected by a 
faculty committee in April of each year. 

It is believed by the administration and faculty of Millsaps that this 
opportunity for first-hand study and observation of government in action 
Is unexcelled by any undergraduate program in education today.

on scholarship, a quality index is arrived at by dividing the number of 
quality points by the number of academic hours taken. 



84 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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.

ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 



!>. 



A student who has not been placed on either academic or attendance !*• 

probation has the privilege of being absent from classes on occasions which 
necessitate such absences. The intent of this privilege is that students 
with good academic standing are expected to be prompt and regular in 
attendance, but do not have to secure the approval of the Dean for each 
absence incurred. The specific regulations pertaining to students in this 

classification are as follows: 

V 
All students are expected to be regular and prompt in their attendance 
upon classes. Each student is, therefore, required to accept full re- 
sponsibility for his own class attendance. If a student is absent from 
a class four successive times without an explanation to the Dean, he 
will be placed on attendance probation. 

All students are required to attend classes on the two days immedi- 
ately preceding and those immediately following a regularly scheduled 
vacation period. The following regulations apply: 

a. Students absent on such days will be placed on attendance 
probation. 

b. In order to be removed from this attendance probation, a stu- 
dent must submit a written statement concerning his absence 
to the Dean, accompanied by a written statement from a phy- 
sician to certify that the student was sufficiently ill to be 
unable to attend his classes. 

c. Absences from classes on these days for any other reason 
than certified illness may be approved only by action of the 
Administrative Committee or by vote of the faculty of the 
college. 

ABSENCE FROM TESTS AND EXAMINATIONS 

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. The request 
for this permission must be submitted in writing to the Dean -tvithin one 
week after the student returns to classes. 

The following regulations apply to examinations: 

a. An absence from a final examination may be excused by the 
Dean only on the basis of illness on the day of the exami- 
nation. This illness must be certified by a written state- 
ment by a physician to the effect that the student was suf- 
ficiently ill to be unable to attend the examination. 

b. Absences from an examination due to dire emergencies other j 
than illness may be excused only by action of the Adminis- 
trative Committee of the college or by vote of the faculty 

acting upon written request. 



8 6 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

c. Students missing examinations must submit their written 
excuses within two weeks of the absence. The special exami- 
nation, if granted, must be held within the first six weeks of 
the subsequent semester. 

CHAPEL ATTENDANCE 

Regular chapel attendance is required of all students one day each 
week. Any student who is absent from chapel three or more times in one 
semester will be required to offer a written explanation of his absence to 
the Dean. If this explanation is not satisfactory, the student will be 
placed on probation, and a penalty of hours and quality points may be 
imposed. 

PROBATION 

Probation is defined as follows: 
Academic Probation: — 

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. 

Attendance Probation: — 

a. Upon the recommendation of the instructor involved, a stu- 
dent may be placed on probation in a course in which his ir- 
regular attendance endangers his academic standing in the 
course. Probationary rules apply to such a student only in 
the course in which he is reported as being on attendance 
probation. 

b. Any student who is absent from any class for four consecu- 
tive times without satisfactory explanation to the Dean will 
be placed on attendance probation by the Dean. 

Disciplinary Probation: — 

Students guilty of serious infractions of the regulations of 
the college may at the discretion of the appropriate dean or 
faculty committee be placed on disciplinary probation. Pro- 
bationary attendance regulations will apply for such a stu- 
dent in all courses in which he is enrolled. 

Attendance regulations for probationary students are as follows: 

a. All excuses for absences are issued by the Dean. 

b. If an absence is necessary, the probationary student is urged 
to confer with the Dean before missing class. In case of an 
emergency where it is not feasible to see the Dean before the 
absence, the student should bring a written excuse to the 
Dean within one week after returning to classes. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 87 

c. Excuses for absences due to illness should be supported by 
signed statements of the physician or the nurse in attend- 
ance. 

d. Penalties for unexcused absences will normally take the form 
of deductions of hours and quality points earned by the stu- 
dent at Millsaps College according to the following formula: 

Classes of fifty-minutes duration: 
Unexcused 
absences Penalty 

3 One credit hour and one quality point 

5 Two credit hours and two quality points 

8 Three credit hours and three quality points 

11 Four credit hours and four quality points 

For each additional three absences there is a penalty of one 
additional credit hour and one quality point. 

Classes or independent laboratory courses of seventy-five 
minutes or longer duration: 
Unexcused 
absences Penalty 

2 One credit hour and one quality point 

3 Two credit hours and two quality points 

5 Three credit hours and three quality points 

7 Four credit hours and four quality points 

For each additional two absences there is a penalty of one 
additional credit hour and one quality point. 

Students who are on probation may be removed by making a 1.00 
quality point index during a regular semester or during a summer session 
at Millsaps College in which the student is enrolled for at least twelve 
hours credit. 

SEXIOR EXEMPTIONS 

Seniors may be exempt from final examinations in all subjects in 
which they have maintained a grade of C up to two weeks before final 
examinations. These exemptions are allowed only at the end of the semes- 
ter in which they take the comprehensive examination for graduation. It 
shall be understood, however, that this exemption does not insure the stu- 
dent a final grade of C, since daily grades during the last two weeks shall 
count in the final average. Under no circumstances may a student be 
exempt from any examination in more than one term or semester. 

Students may be exempt from final examinations only in the semes- 
ter in which they take their comprehensive, scholastic requirements being 
met. 

CHANGE OF SCHEDULE 
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 
♦acuity members concerned. Courses dropped within the first two weeks 



8 8 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

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, he receives 
an F in that course and is subject to further disciplinary action. 

WITHDRAWAL 

A student desiring to withdraw from college within any term must 
obtain permission from the Dean of the college. A withdrawal card must 
be filled out and must be approved by the Dean or the Registrar. No re- 
fund will be considered unless this written notice is procured and presented 
to the Business Office. 

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

A student who withdraws from college with permission after the first 
two weeks of a semester is recorded as WP (withdrawn passing) or WF 
(withdrawn failing) in each course. A student who withdraws without 
permission receives a grade of F in each course. 

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 have come to 
college. 

The college reserves the right to cancel the registration of any stu- 
dent at any time. In such a case, the pro rata portion of tuition will be 
returned, 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 set- 
tled his account in the Business Office. 

AUTOMATIC EXCLUSION .'■■ ^■. 

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 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 semester. 

CONDUCT 

The rules of the college require from every student decorous, sober, 
and upright conduct as long as he remains a member of the college, wheth- 
er 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- 
tions.

RELIGIOUS 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 religious program. 

Each week the administration, the faculty, and the students come to- 
gether for a chapel service in the Christian Center. This is a formal wor- 
ship service. Early on Sunday morning the Holy Communion is adminis- 
tered for the college community. 

The Christian Council is a student group made up of representatives 
from all the religious groups on the campus. The chairman of the fac- 
ulty committee on religious activities serves as counselor for the group. 
Many denominations are represented in the student body. Each is given 
the opportunity to organize a group and given a time to meet. The YWCA 
and the YMCA are given the opportunity to organize and promote an in- 
terdenominational program. 

Students preparing for the Christian ministry may join the Minis- 
terial League, which provides programs and field work 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, to the local churches, 
and to such institutions as the Methodist Children's Home and the local 
hospitals. 

A similar organization for young women going into full-time Christian 
work is the Women's Christian Workers. Their program and activities 
also provide opportunity for worship and Christian service on and off the 
campus. 

There are other opportunities for worship such as noonday medita- 
tions, evening vespers, and organized prayer groups in the dormitories. 
These services provide opportunity for participation by all students. The 
worship services are planned by the students themselves. 

There are periods of special emphasis on religion, such as Pre-Easter 
services and Religious Emphasis Week. The annual Religious Emphasis 
Week is sponsored by all the religious groups of the campus, functioning 
through student committees working with the Religious Activities Com- 
mittee of the faculty. For this week some outstanding religious leader, 
familiar with student life and problems, addresses the student body and 
various groups of students and professors and is available for private con- 
ference with individuals. Other discussion group leaders are brought in to 
participate in this program. This series has been enriched through the 
J. Lloyd Decell Lecture Foundation. Speakers of recent years have in- 
cluded Dr. W. A. Smart of Emory University; Dr. Marshall Steel of the 
Highland Park Methodist Church, Dallas, Texas; Dr. W. B. Selah of 
Galloway Memorial Methodist Church, Jackson, Mississippi; Dr. Mack 



9 2 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Stokes of Emory University; Dr. Henry Hitt Crane of the Central Methodist 
Church, Detroit, Michigan; Dr. D. Elton Trueblood of Earlham College; 
and Dr. George Baker of Southern Methodist University. 

All administrators and faculty members consider it as part of their 
responsibility to counsel with students about their religious life. This 
helps the student come to a mature interpretation of the total life experi- 
ence. Religion is considered a very necessary factor in this maturing 
process. 

A recent addition to the program of the college is a Town and Coun- 
try teacher who offers courses in the Religion Department bearing on 
the opportunities and responsibilities of the parish ministry. This teacher 
counsels with those students holding churches and those preparing to 
go into the active ministry. He helps them in setting up adequate pro- 
grams in their parishes. He is interested also in the lay student who 
wishes to prepare better for active work in the church as a layman. 

Through the religious groups on the campus the students are encour- 
aged to participate in the program of the Youth Fellowship in local 
churches. They are also encouraged to attend important conferences, 
assemblies, and camps. Students also work on Youth Caravans and help 
in Vacation Church Schools in the summer months. 

Millsaps campus has become a conference center. Such groups as 
the Christian Vocation Conference and the Methodist Student Movement 
meet here from time to time. These groups bring religious leaders and 
young people to the campus. Campus students take advantage of such 
programs. 

ATHLETICS 

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. 

L INTRAMURAL ATHLETICS FOR MEN. 

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, Softball fields, football field, running track, and gymnasium. 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 93 

IL INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS FOR MEN. 

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. 

III. SPORTS FOR WOMEN 

Women's sports are encouraged for the reason that when properly 
regulated they tend to promote the physical, mental, social, and emotional 
well being of the students, and to foster a wholesome college spirit. 

Millsaps does not sponsor intercollegiate sports for women. The de- 
sire is to have a program in which all girls may participate. The Intra- 
mural program satisfies this need. Sports such as ping-pong, volley- 
ball, basketball, softball, and tennis are offered. 

Women students are encouraged to participate in sports during their 
leisure time. The college offers many facilities for their use — the golf 
course, gymnasium, tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, and others. 

IV. ATHLETIC FACILITIES 

(1) The gymnasium provides a large playing floor for volleyball and 
basketball. It has dressing 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", a class room, shower and locker rooms for girls, 
and the college book store. The gymnasium has become the center of ac- 
tivities for the students. (2) The baseball diamond, separate from the 
football field, is also used as the intramural football field. There are also 
softball diamonds. (3) Five tennis courts have been constructed near 
the gymnasium. (4) A very fine nine hole golf course is available for use 
by all students. 

SOCIAL ORGANIZATIONS 

Social events play an important part in student life at Millsaps. The 
social organizations are founded on the belief that man is a social being 
and enjoys fellowship. They strive for high ideals and make a valuable 
contribution to the college and the individual in teaching students to live 
together. 

There are four fraternities, four sororities, and two independent 
groups at Millsaps. The fraternities and sororities are all members of 
well-established national Greek-letter organizations which maintain chap- 
ters at Millsaps. The independent groups are members of the National 
Independent Student Association. 

The sororities are Beta Sigma Omicron, Chi Omega, 
Kappa Delta, and Phi Mu. 

The fraternities are Kappa Alpha, Kappa Sigma, Lamb- 
da Chi Alpha, and Pi Kappa Alpha. 

The Independent groups are the Vikings ( women ) and 
Norsemen (men). 






94 MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Any student wlio desires to join the National Independent Student 
Association, rather than a fraternity or sorority, is eligible for member- 
ship and should indicate this desire to the officers of Vikings or Norse- 
men. 

Fraternities and sororities select students for membership during the 
first week of school, known as Rush Week. At the end of Rush Week 
these organizations offer "bids" to the students whom they have selected.

MILLSAPS COLLEGE 101 

HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE '\ '• 

Founded just over sixty years ago, Millsaps is one of the young- ',<; 

est colleges supported by the Methodist Church. It was in the late eighties 
that the Mississippi Methodist Conferences appointed a joint commission 
to formulate plans for a "college for males under the auspicies and con- 
trol of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South." ^ 

Among the members of this commission was Major R. W. Millsaps, 
Jackson businessman and banker, who offered to give $50,000 to endow 
the institution, provided Methodists throughout the state matched this 
amount. 

Under the leadership of Bishop Charles B. Galloway, the Methodists >■ 

met the challenge of Major Millsaps. The charter for the college was 
granted February 21, 1890, and the college opened its doors in the fall of 
1892. Coeducation was instituted in the seventh session. 

First president of the college was William Belton Murrah, who served 
until 1910. Along with Bishop Galloway and Major Millsaps, Murrah 
is commonly thought of as one of the founders of the college. 

Other presidents have been D. C. Hull, M.A., (1910-1912); A. F. 
Watkins, D.D., (1912-1923); D. M. Key, Ph.D., LL.D., (1923-193S); M. L. 
Smith, Ph.D. LL.D., (1938-1952); and H. E. Finger, Jr., B.D., who has 
been president since 1952. 

BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS ' 

The campus, covering nearly 10 acres in the center of a beautiful 
residential section and on one of the highest points in the city, is valued 
at nearly two 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 possil)le the addition of completely modern equip- 
ment for the science laboratories and the extension of the library stacks. 

A new home for the President and a completely new system of drive- 
ways through the campus were constructed in 1949. 

The Christian Center Memorial Building was completed in 19 50. 
It was made possible by the gifts of Mississippi Methodists, alumni, and 
friends of the college. This building has an auditorium seating more than 
1000 persons, a small chapel, classrooms, and offices. 

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. 

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

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

CARNEGIE FOUNDATION RESEARCH GRANT 

Millsaps College was selected as one of five colleges, with Tulane 
University as the center of an area including Texas, Louisiana, and Missis- 
sippi, to be the recipient of a research grant given by the Carnegie Foun- 
dation for the Improvement of Teaching. This grant amounted to $4,000 a 
year for five years, supplemented by $2,000 a year from the college bud- 
get. During the five years of this grant thirty-three members of the fac- 
ulty availed themselves of the opportunity to improve their teaching 
through special study and research work. 

THE J. LLOYD DECELL LECTURESHIP 

This lectureship was established at Millsaps in 1948 as a memorial 
to Bishop J. Lloyd Decell (1887-1946). Bishop Decell took the lead in 
merging the three colleges of Methodism in Mississippi — Whitworth, 
Grenada, and Millsaps. He also set up the campaign for funds known as 
the "Million for the Master". The lectureship foundation of $50,000 was 
a part of the "Million for the Master" fund. The purpose of the lecture- 
ship is to bring to the college men of scholarship in the fields of literature, 
science, philosophy, and religion. Dr. Henry Hitt Crane of the Central 
Methodist Church, Detroit, Michigan, was the first lecturer on this foun- 
dation, December 5-7, 1950. Dr. D. Elton Trueblood delivered the lec- 
tures February 25-27, 1952. Dr. George C. Baker of Southern Methodist 
University, was the speaker February 23-25, 1953. Dr. George Buttrick 
was the speaker May 5-7, 1954. 

CARNEGIE-MILLSAPS LIBRARY 

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 



MILLSAPS COLLEGE 103 

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 pro- 
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, Mississippi, is used for the purchase of books in 
English literature. 

During the session of 1941-1942 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 library. 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. 

In 1952 the North Reading Room was made into a periodical room 
by the addition of shelves for the bound magazines and the rearrangement 
of current issues and the periodical indexes. 

Within the last two years the Library has been the recipient of inter- 
esting and valuable books from the personal libraries of the late Bishop 
J. Lloyd Decell, the late Rev. E. C. Gunn, the late Rev. W. M. Williams , 

and the family of the late Senator Anselm J. McLaurin. There have been 
gifts of books also from Mrs. Silas W. Davis, Mrs. J. W. Garner, the Robert » 

D. Sanders Foundation and Dr. M. L. Smith on his retirement from the ^ 

college. 

The library contains approximately 3 6,000 volumes. 

The library hours are: Monday through Thursday, 8 to 12, 1 to 5, 
6:30 to 9:30; Friday, 8 to 12, 1 to 5; Saturday, 9 to 12, 1 to 4; Sunday, 
1:30 to 4:30. The library is closed for the Chapel Hour each week and 
during the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring holidays, and during the 
month between the close of the summer school and the opening of the 
fall semester.
