MiLLSAPS COLLEGE 

JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI 




CATALOG 

1972-73 

ANNOUNCEMENTS 

1973-74 



FOREWORD 

Experiences indicate that those who examine college catalogs 
are usually interested primarily in finding the answers to the follow- 
ing 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 opportunities 
are available for earning part of these expenses? 

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

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

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

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 prospective stu- 
dents, are answered in Part I. The other questions are covered suc- 
cessively in Parts il-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. 

This catalog is primarily a record of the 1972-1973 session of 
the College. The academic calendar of the 1973-1974 session will 
be found in the back.

THE PURPOSE OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE 

Millsaps College has as its primary aim the development of men and women 
for responsible leadership and well-rounded lives of useful service to their fellow 
men, their country, and their God. It seeks to function as a community of learners 
where faculty and students together seek the truth that frees the minds of men. 

As an institution of the Methodist Church, Millsaps College is dedicated to 
the idea that religion is a vital part of education; that education is an integral 
part of the Christian religion; and that church-related colleges, providing a sound 
academic program in a Christian environment, afford a kind of discipline and 
influence which no other type of institution can offer. The College provides a 
congenial atmosphere where persons of all faiths may study and work together 
for the development of their physical, intellectual, and spiritual capacities. 

As a liberal arts college, Millsaps seeks to give the student adequate 
breadth and depth of understanding of civilization and culture in order to broaden 
his perspective, to enrich his personality, and to enable him to think and act 
intelligently amid the complexities of the modern world. The curriculum is 
designed to avoid premature specialization and to integrate the humanities, the 
social studies, and the natural sciences for their mutual enrichment. 

The College recognizes that training which will enable a p>erson to support 
himself adequately is an essential part of a well-rounded education. On the other 
hand, it believes that one of the chief problems of modern society is that In too 
many cases training as expert technicians has not been accompanied by education 
for good citizenship. It offers, therefore, professional and pre-professional training 
balanced by cultural and humane studies. In an environment that emphasizes 
the cultural and esthetic values to be found in the study of language, literature, 
philosophy, and science, the student at Millsaps can also obtain the necessary 
courses to prepare him for service in such fields as teaching, journalism, social 
work, and business or for professional study in these areas as well as in theology, 
medicine, dentistry, engineering, law, and other fields. 

As an institution of higher learning, Millsaps College fosters an attitude of 
continuing intellectual awareness, of tolerance, and of unbiased inquiry, without 
which true education cannot exist. It does not seek to indoctrinate, but to inform 
and inspire. It does not shape the student in a common mold of thought and 
ideas, but rather attempts to search out his often deeply hidden aptitudes, capa- 
cities, and aspirations and to provide opportunities for his maximum potential 
development. It seeks to broaden his horizons and to lift his eyes and heart 
toward the higher and nobler attributes of life. The desired result is an intelligent, 
voluntary dedication to moral principles and a growing social consciousness that 
will guide him into a rich, well-rounded Christian life, with ready acceptance 
of responsibility to neighbor, state, and church. 

— adopted by the Faculty and Board of 
Trustees of Millsaps College, 1955-56 



I 

Information For 
Prospective Students 




Founded February 21, 1890, Millsaps is one of the youngest 
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 
auspices and control of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South." 

Among the members of this commission were Major Reuben 
Webster Millsaps, Jackson businessman and banker, who offered to 
give $50,000 to endow the institution, provided Methodists through- 
out the state matched this amount. 

Under the leadership of Bishop Charles Betts 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 1 892. Co-education was instituted in the seventh 
session. 

The growth of the College through the years has been made 
possible by gifts from innumerable benefactors. Besides the generous 
gifts of Major Millsaps, the College has received large donations 
from W. S. F. Tatum, R. D. Sanders, Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Wilson, Mr. 
and Mrs. R. L. Ezelle, the W. M. Buie family, the C. R. Ridgway 
family, Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Bacot, and Robert Mason Strieker. Other 
individuals have endowed scholarship and loan funds, which are 
described elsewhere in this catalog. 

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

Other presidents have been David Carlisle Hull, M.A., (1910- 
1912); Alexander Farrar Watkins, D.D., (1912-1923); David Martin 
Key, Ph.D., LL.D., (1923-1938); Marion Lofton Smith, Ph.D., LL.D., 
(1938-1952); Homer Ellis Finger, Jr., B.D., D.D., (1952-1964); 
Benjamin Barnes Graves, M.B.A., Ph.D., (1964-1970); and Edward 
McDaniel Collins, Jr., M.A., Ph.D., who was named president in the 
summer of 1 970. 



As a church-related college under the joint sponsorship of the 
Mississippi and North Mississippi Conferences of the United Metho- 
dist Church, Millsaps adheres to the view that one of the fundamental 
bases of a church-related institution is Christian in the sense that 
knowledge of truth is part of its work. Millsaps, therefore, is not 
narrow in its outlook. 

As a small college with an enrollment of approximately 1,000 
students, the close personal relationship that exists among students, 
faculty, and administration at Millsaps is one of the most vital parts 
of the college experience. 

Millsaps is a co-educational college with an enrollment approxi- 
mately equal between men and women. 



GENERAL rNFORMATIOKI 



HISTORY 
OF THE 
COLLEGE 



GENERAL 
INFORMATIO 



Millsaps is a liberal arts college with the primary aim of training 
ts students for responsible citizenship and well-rounded lives rather 
han for narrow professional careers. One of the chief curses of our 
nodern society is that so many of our people are expert lawyers, or 
octors, or business men, or brick layers, without at the same time 
eing good citizens. Millsaps attempts to remedy this situation by 
raining its students, in whatever field of study they may choose, 
3 be community leaders and responsible citizens. 

Offering professional and pre-professional training balanced by 
ultural and disciplinary studies, the College recognizes that training 
^hich will enable a person to support himself adequately is an essen- 
al part of a well-rounded education. Therefore, the student at 
Aillsaps can obtain the necessary courses to prepare him directly for 
business career or for service in education, the ministry, or social 
'ork; he can study music as preparation for professional work in 
ne field, as well as for its esthetic and cultural value; and he can 
btain thoroughly sound basic courses which will prepare him for 
rofesslonal study in medicine, dentistry, law, and other fields. Pro- 
=ssional leaders in all fields recognize that the most valuable mem- 
ers of their profession are those who have something more in their 
ackground than narrow technical study. 

The College selects its student carefully on their ability to think, 
esire to learn, good moral character, and intellectual maturity. The 
rimary consideration in acting on all applications for admission is 
ne ability to do college work in a measure satisfactory to the College 
nd beneficial to the student. 

Millsaps has a cosmopolitan student body representing a whole 
eographical area and including persons of all races and religious 
aiths. During a typical semester, approximately thirty states and a 
alf-dozen foreign countries are represented in the student body. In 
2rms of religious affiliation, the students come from some twenty- 
ive different denominations. 

The capital city of the state gives the College an ideal location. 
Aany educational advantages may be found in Jackson in addition 
3 the courses offered at the College. The State Department of Ar- 
hives and History, the State Library, the Library of the State De- 
artment of Health, and the Jackson Public Library provide research 
acilities found nowhere else in the state. The Jackson Symphony 
)rchestra, Jackson Little Theatre, the New Stage Theatre, The Jack- 
Dn Opera Guild, Inc., and numerous musical, dramatic, and sporting 
vents staged at the City Auditorium and the Mississippi Coliseum 
dd materially to the cultural advantages available. 

Fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and 
chools, and approved by the American Association of University 
Vomen and the University Senate of the United Methodist Church, 
Aillsaps College is recognized by the General Board of Education 
f the United Methodist Church as one of its strongest institutions. 



GENERAL INFORMATION 




The Library of Millsaps College currently contains approximately 
100,000 volumes and 650 periodical subscriptions. 

The library was begun in 1905 on a grant of Andrew Carnegie 
and an endowment of Major Millsaps. In 1925 the Carnegie Corpora- 
tion provided the funds for a new building which was redecorated in 
1944. 

An enlarged and remodeled building was dedicated in Sep- 
tember, 1955, a result of the Million-for-Millsaps Campaign and 
the generosity of the H. J. Wilson family, and in 1971 the library 
was further expanded as a part of a new Academic Complex. The 
library provides individual study carrels and rooms, browsing and 
lounge areas. In addition to research materials, there is a collection 
of audiovisual materials and dial-access listening facilities. 

Special collections in the library include the Lehman Engel 
Collection of books, manuscripts, recordings, art objects and corres- 
pondence relating to the theatre and the arts; the Mississippi Metho- 
dist Archives, administered by Dr. J. B. Cain; a rare book collection; 
and the Kellogg Collection of juvenile books and curriculum materials. 

The library hours are as follows: Monday through Thursday, 
7:45 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.; Friday, 7:45 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Saturday, 
9:00 to 5:00 p.m.; Sunday, 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The library 
maintains limited service during school vacations. 



The campus, covering nearly 1 00 acres in the center of a beauti- 
ful residential section and on one of the highest points in the city, 
is valued at approximately eight million dollars. 

The administration building, Murrah Hall, was erected in 1914; 
the Sullivan-Harrell Science Hall in 1928; and the Buie Memorial 
Gymnasium in 1936. The James Observatory provides excellent facili- 
ties for students of astronomy and is also made available on frequent 
occasions to the citizens of Jackson and surrounding areas. Recent 
grants and gifts have made possible the addition of completely modern 
equipment for the science laboratories. 

The Christian Center Building was completed in 1950. 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. In 1967 
the stage was renovated into a modern theatre stage. Seminar rooms 
and faculty offices were added. The whole building was air-condi- 
tioned. 

In 1955 the Carnegie-Millsaps Library was modernized and 
enlarged to three times its former size. It was the first building to 
be constructed with the Million-for-Millsaps funds and has been 
renamed the Millsaps-Wilson Library.

The fundamental objective of all counseling services is to assist 
each student to be ready and able to accomplish maximum success 
in his academic work. Consequently, every member of the college 
community participates in counseling, and specialists from the com- 
munity 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: 

In order to assist new and prospective students to plan wisely in 
looking forward to their college careers, the College will provide 
counseling services to any prospective student who may desire to 
explore his vocational and educational objectives before he enters 
his classes in the fall semester. Students who have been admitted 
are urged to take advantage of this service. 

All freshmen are expected to be on the campus on August 27, 
1973, to participate in the orientation program. Transfer students

and executed cooperatively by students and faculty for the purpose 

Df assisting students to be prepared adequately for entering fully into 
ihe college program. 

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

Particular attention is given by the Office of Student Personnel 
to counseling students on such matters as vocational choice, selection 
Df fields of study, study skills, reading skills, emotional adjustment, 
and similar college student problems. 

Any student registered in the College has available to him 
ndividual testing services to assist him in self-analysis and planning 
n terms of his individual aptitudes, interests, and personality char- 
acteristics. 



The housing program of the College is coordinated by the Dean 
Df Men and the Dean of Women in cooperation with the residence 
lall's resident hostess, counselors, and assistants. Men students live 
n our men's residence halls or in fraternity houses. Only active mem- 
Ders of a fraternity are permitted to live in its house. Women students 
ive in our women's residence halls. The regulations by which resident 
Nomen students are governed are formulated and administered by the 
A'omen's Student Government Association. All residence hall residents 
are expected to maintain their rooms in a clean and reasonably neat 
:ondition. 

All out-of-town students are required to reside in college housing 
'acilities, unless they have received permission, in writing, through 
:he Office of Student Personnel, to live in off-campus housing. Appli- 
:ation forms for permission to live off campus are available in the 
Student Personnel Office. Out-of-town students wishing to live off 
:ampus should complete these forms and receive approval in advance 
Df any move and before incurring obligations to a prospective land- 
ord. No out-of-town student classified below the junior level will be 
given permission to live off campus except in special cases as defined 
Dy either the Dean of Men or the Dean of Women. Students who 
desire to live with relatives while attending Millsaps must secure 
Dermission in writing from the Office of Student Personnel. 

Residence Hall facilities are designed to house two students in 
2ach space. Students desiring to room together should make every 
Bffort to pay reservation fees at the same time and to specify their 
desire to room together. A limited number of single rooms are avail- 
able in each residence hall. Students desiring a single room should 
Day their reservation fee as early as possible. Room assignments are 
made in order in which students' reservation fees or completed appli- 
cations have been received, whichever is later. Preference for a par- 
ticular room will be honored unless it has been taken by someone 
vvhose eligibility for the room entitles him to it.

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

Residence Halls open for occupancy at 2 p.m. of the day preced- 
ing each term or semester and close at 4 p.m. on the last day of each 
term or semester. All Residence Halls close at 2 p.m. on the afternoon 
of the day that Christmas and spring holidays begin and re-open at 
2 p.m. on the day immediately preceding the day that classes resume 
following the holiday period. No student can be housed in the Resi- 
dence Halls during the Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Spring holiday 
periods. 

The College Dining Hall and the College Grill are located in 
the Boyd Campbell Student Center. These food services are under 
contract to a professional food service company to assure the best 
in food and service at moderate rates. The average cost per meal 
to the student is 67(2. Three meals per day purchased with cash will 
average $1 .20 per meal. 

The College Grill is in the same building with the Dining Hall. 
It is available to those who wish a la carte service and short orders. 
There is a complete soda fountain service. The Grill operates on a 
cash sales basis. 

The medical services are designed to provide treatment and care 
for students with minor illnesses, diagnostic and referral services, and 
to implement preventive and educational programs. The services of 
the college physician are available through the nurse on duty or 
one of the resident hostesses. 

Students with minor illnesses are cared for on campus. More 
serious illnesses or those requiring long-term care are referred to one 
of the local hospitals or to home on a private patient basis. Each 
student is urged to have insurance for medical care, either through a 
family policy or by enrolling in the group insurance made available 
through the College. 

New students are required to have their personal physicians 
complete and mail in a physical examination form. This form is 
provided the student before the opening of the term in which he will 
enroll. In addition, each new student is required to have influenza 
immunizations prior to enrollment. 

The heart of a small college is the close relationship between 
students and faculty. From this relationship pulses the life-blood of 
the campus in the form of mutual confidence, mutual respect, and 
mutual concern for the welfare of the total membership of the college 
community. The Boyd Campbell Student Center makes a unique 
contribution to the College by serving as the "living room" of the 
campus where friends can meet for relaxation and enrichment through 
interpersonal contacts; by providing a center for extracurricular activi- 
ties; by providing a central location for the cafeteria, the grill, the 
post office, and the bookstore; by serving as a focal point for com- 
muters and off-campus students; and by providing a general unifying 
influence for the entire campus.

Financial Information 




Millsaps College Is an independent institution. Each student is 
charged a tuition fee and certain general fees which together cover

Curriculum 





REQUIREMENTS FOR DEGREES 

The entering student — particularly at the freshman level — has the option of follow-- 
ing the traditional program of requirements, or of following the modified program ofl 
requirements open to students who successfully complete the Heritage course. 

Traditional Program. This is traditional only in the sense that it represents thei 
type of program that in recent decades has been characteristic of most liberal arts^ 
colleges. Basically it consists of a broad pattern of specific courses representative of 
the entire area of man's knowledge. Its objective is to provide the student with at 
least a minimum contact experience with a broad pattern of disciplines. 

Heritage Program. This program, an outgrowth of a comprehensive curriculum 
review, was especially designed for entering Freshmen. It brings the resources and 
perspectives of many disciplines into a unified whole, presenting the story of Western 
Man's heritage in its many dimensions. The student still works in the areas of history, 
literature, religion, philosophy, fine arts, classical studies, communication skills, etc., 
but in the Heritage Program he approaches all of these within an interdisciplinary frame- 
work. Lecturers and discussion leaders come from a variety of disciplines. Students who 
complete the Heritage Program meet in part or in full many of the requirements 
found in the traditional program. 

The requirements are as follows:

required. 

7. English Proficiency Requirement: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree each student is required to demonstrate pro- 
ficiency in English composition and usage by passing an examination given by the English 
Department. It consists of a 500-word essay written extempore within two and one-half 
hours on a subject selected from a list furnished at the examination. 



^Credit will not be allowed for either History 101-102 or English 101-102 for students completing 

the Heritage 101 -102/English 103-104 program; however students receiving credit in Heritage 

101-102 may receive credit for English 201-202, English 313-314 and all courses in Fine Arts, 

Philosophy and Religion. 

''If a student has two high school units and continues the same language in college, he is required 

to complete only the foreign languages 201-202 course (6 hours). 

'In the elementary education program, the requirement can be met by taking Mathematics 105-106. 

Credit cannot be allowed for both Mathematics 103 and 115. 

*Students who have not completed Heritage 101-102 must take three of the required hours in 

Religion in a course dealing with the Biblical heritage of western culture: 201, 202, 301, 302, 311. 

The remaining three hours of the requirement, and the three hours required of students who have 

completed Heritage 101-102, may be chosen from any course offered by the Department of Religion. 

The Behavioral Sciences are: Economics, Political Science, Psychology and Sociology. 

•Year courses only are acceptable toward meeting this requirement. 

DEGREE REQUIREMENTS 33 



The examination is given by the English Department at two stated times in the 
academic year. The regular administration is on the second Thursday in November from 
4 to 6:30 p.m. in Sullivan-Harrell Hall. A special administration of the examination 
is given on the second Thursday in March from 4 to 6:30 p.m. in Murrah Hall to 
seniors who hope to graduate but who have not passed the Junior English Proficiency 
Examination. Seniors who fail the special examination and who think- they have com- 
pelling cause may petition the Academic Dean for an extraordinary administration of 
the examination in the Summer Session following. If the Dean grants the petition, he 
may also stipulate that the student must audit English 101-102 during the Summer 
Session. 

All rising juniors, transfer students at the junior and senior levels, and seniors 
who failed the examination in their junior year must be present for the November ad- 
ministration of the proficiency examination. 

Each student who fails the examination in November is assigned to a member 
of the English Department for remedial instruction. The English Department offers the 
tutorial work gladly, but the students must avail themselves of it. 

8. Extracurricular Credits: 

The following extracurricular activities to a maximum of eight semester hours 
may be included in the 128 semester hours required for graduation:

later than the beginning of the junior year. Three cards will be signed by the major 
professor to show approval of the choice of a major; and these cards will be kept on 
file, two in the Registrar's Office, and one with the major professor.

English Composition, Mathematics, and the Romance languages during the Freshman 
Drientation period. No course credit, however, is awarded the student who meets a 
'equirement in this fashion. 

11. Comprehensive Examinations: 

Before receiving a bachelor's degree the student must pass a satisfactory com- 
prehensive examination in his major field of study. This examination is given in the 
Senior year and is intended to cover subject matter greater in scope than a single 
:ourse Or series of courses. The purpose of the comprehensive examination is to 
:oordinate the class work with independent 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. 

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 examination 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 in which 
he has credit and in which he is currently enrolled complete the requirements in the 
major department. He may take the examination in the spring semester if he will be 
within 1 8 hours of graduation by the end of that semester. The examination will be 
given in December 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 semester is the 
last week in April of each year. Comprehensive examinations will not be given during 
the summer except by permission of the Dean. Those who fail a comprehensive exami- 
nation may have an opportunity to take another examination after the lapse of two 
months. Additional examinations may be taken at the discretion of the chairman of the 
student's major department with the consent of the Dean of the Faculty. 

12. Quality Index Required: 

A minimum of 240 quality points is required for the B.A. and B.S. degrees; 
248 for the B.M. degree. An over-all quality point index of 2.00 is required of all 
students. The index is always calculated on total number of academic hours attempted. 

13. Application for a Degree: 

Each student who is a candidate for a degree is required to submit a written 
application for the degree by November 1 of the academic year of hs graduation. This 
date will apply also to students who plan to complete their work in summer school. 
Forms for degree applications are to be secured and filed in the Registrar's Office. 

DEGREE REQUIREMENTS 35 



14. Requirements for Second Degree: 

In order to earn a second degree from Millsaps College a student must have thirty 
additional semester hours of work beyond the 128 semester hours required for the 
first degree and these additional hours must include all of the requirements for both 
the second degree and the second major. 

SUGGESTED DEGREE PROGRAMS

summer session, nor do they apply to students entering the second semester if the ap- 
propriate courses are not offered at that time.

PRE-MEDICAL AND PRE-DENTAL 

It is the responsibility of the pre-medical and pre-dental students to consult the 
catalogs of the schools to which they wish to apply for their specific requirements. 
The following courses are required by many medical and dental schools. 

Biology 121-122 8 hr. Mathematics 115-116 8 hr.

English 101-102 6 hr. 1 31 -1 32 and 1 51 -1 52 . 1 hr. 

Electives 42 hr. 

The student is urged to consult with a member of the Pre-medical Advisory 
Committee (Berry, Galloway, Keys, McKeown) in designing a program of courses that 
will fit his particular needs, background, and interest. 

Millsaps College and many medical and dental schools strongly recommend that 
the student obtain a baccalaureate degree in an area of his interest. This catalog should 
be consulted elsewhere for the exact major and degree requirements. Millsaps and 
most medical and dental schools also strongly recommend that the student develop a 
sound background in the humanities and social sciences. 

The student should remember that the requirements listed in a medical or dental 
school catalog are minimal but that he should give himself maximum preparation. 
In general, the student who is weak in some science, as shown by his performance in 
his introductory college courses, is urged to take further work in that science to 
prepare himself adequately. The student should also utilize his limited time in taking 
courses that will not be available during his professional training. The following courses 
are recommended as electives by many medical and dental schools. 



i|f foreign languege is chosen for the degree requirement, the student must earn 6 hrs. of 

201-202 credit. See page 37. 

2|n certain programs specific mathematics courses are required. 

'Heritage students may choose from among the following courses in Religion: 201, 202, 301, 311, 
381, 391, 392. See page 37. 

'These courses count toward the total of 30 acitdemic music semester hours required for the 
B.M. degree. See page 37. 

"A suggested sequence of courses for those students who elect the Heritage Program is given on 
pages 36 and 37.

The Heritage Program (see page 32) . This program gives the student a more 
flexible schedule and time to take additional courses of his interest and need. 

PRE-SEMINARY 

Students planning professional careers in the church should plan to attain the 
appropriate professional degree from a theological seminary, and should seek a broad 
undergraduate liberal arts basis as preparation for their professional education. Foreign 
language should be chosen as a degree requirement: German, Greek, or Latin will 
provide the best preparation for seminary education. 

Pre-seminary students should consider majors in Religion, Ancient Languages, 
English, History, Philosophy, Psychology, or Sociology. Whatever major is chosen, such 
students should plan at least eighteen hours of work in Religion. 

Students planning to work as Directors of Christian Education should consider 
the same choice of majors, and should also take a minimum of eighteen hours of work 
in Religion, including Religion 252 (The Educational Work of the Church). In addi- 
tion, they should plan considerable work in courses in Psychology and Education, and 
should consult the adviser to Pre-Ministerial students for specific suggestions. 

Some students planning work in Christian Education may wish to combine their 
undergraduate preparation for theological seminary work with a major in elementary 
education or a program looking toward certification for secondary school teaching. 
If one of these courses is chosen the appropriate adviser in the Department of Education 
should be consulted, as well as the adviser to Pre-Ministerial students. Requirements 
for teacher certification are quite extensive, and the student must plan a program 
which will cover these requirements while allowing a minimum of twelve hours work 
in Religion, including Religion 252. 

All students planning professional careers in the church are urged to consult with 
the adviser to Pre-Ministerial students in planning a program to fill out the basic 
sequences suggested below, and one which will fit their individual needs and interests 
while preparing them for their professional education in a theological seminary. Pre- 
Ministerial students should be in contact with their District Superintendent and 
Conference Board of Ministry, and students planning work in Christian Education 
with their Conference Board of Education. Such students who are not Methodist should 
contact the appropriate official or committee of their own denomination.

PRE-LAW 

No particular major or sequence of courses is necessary for students planning 
to go to law school; there is no ideal pre-law program for all students. To do well 
in the study of law, a student should possess 

(a) ability to communicate effectively and precisely; 

(b) critical understanding of the human institutions with which the law deals; 

(c) creative power in thinking. 

Different students may obtain the desired training in these three areas from different 
courses. Therefore, the student should consult with his faculty or major adviser and 
with the pre-law adviser in designing a program of courses that will best fit his 
particular needs, background, and interests. The student with a pre-law interest should 
consult the pre-law adviser, Mr. Adams, from time to time. 

PRE-SOCIAL WORK 

Students who wish to prepare for a professional career in Social Work should 
plan a broad liberal arts program with a major in one of the social sciences. Because 
of the widely varied opportunities in this field, no specific schedule 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. 

EDUCATIONAL CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS 

TEACHER EDUCATION 

A placement bureau for teachers is maintained under the direction of the De- 
partment of Education. It seeks to further the interests of teachers educated at Millsaps 
College and to be of service to school officials who wish to secure able teachers. 

Millsaps offers a major in elementary education at two levels: kindergarten through 
the third grade; fourth through the eighth grade. 

A major in secondary education is not offered; the student desirous of secondary 
certification is required to major in some department other than Education. For endorse- 
ment to teach, the student must take certain specified courses in general education, 
specified courses in his major field, and specified courses in Education. 

State requirements for teaching certificates are quite detailed and specific, and 
students must take the exact courses specified. It is the responsibility of the student 
at both the elementary and secondary levels to coordinate courses for certification to 
teach with requirements for graduation from Millsaps outlined on pages 32 and 33.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS 



THE WASHINGTON SEMESTER 

"The Washington Semester" is a joint arrangement between The American 
University, Washington, D.C., Milisaps College, and 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 possible 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 Government and Public 
Administration of The American University in Washington. They may earn fifteen 
hours toward graduation in their home colleges. Six hours of credit are earned in a 
Conference Seminar, in which high-ranking leaders of politics and government meet 
with students. Three hours of credit are earned in a Research Course which entails the 
writing of a paper by utilizing the resources available only at the nation's capital. The 
remainder of a student's course load constitutes electives which are taken from the 
normal offerings of American University. In Washington the program is coordinated 
by faculty members of The American University. 

Milisaps will ordinarily send two students in each spring semester. These will 
be either juniors or first semester seniors and will be selected by a faculty committee 
in April of each year. Exceptionally well-qualified sophomores are occasionally accepted. 
The student technically remains an enrollee of his home college for the purpose of 
scholarships and loans, which are thus not affected by his participation in the program. 

THE UNITED NATIONS SEMESTER 

A cooperative program with Drew University in Madison, New Jersey, enables 
Milisaps political science majors to spend a semester making a first-hand study of 
the work of the United Nations. Participants may earn fifteen hours of credit toward 
graduation. Three hours of credit are earned in a Conference Seminar, which meets 
two days of each week in the United Nations Plaza. Members of the Secretariat, 
delegates, and special agency representatives often lead discussions in a planned 
program of studies. Students also earn three hours of credit by engaging in an indi- 
vidual research project on some phase of the United Nations. The remaining hours of 
credit are electives taken from the regular course offerings of Drew's liberal arts college. 

The student technically remains an enrollee of Milisaps College for the purpose 
of scholarships and loans, which are thus not affected by his participation in the program. 

THE LONDON SEMESTER 

Another cooperative program with Drew University enables upperclass political 
science majors the opportunity to study in London, England, for a semester. Fifteen 
hours of credit are earned in the social sciences, with primary emphasis on political 
science. The faculty, including a resident director from Drew, includes members of 
the faculty of the London School of Economics and Political Science, Oxford University, 
Leeds University, and other outstanding schools. Students live in a residential hotel 
in the heart of London. Provision is made for an optional pre-Fall or post-Spring tour 
of the Continent at a modest cost. 

The student technically remains an enrollee of Milisaps College for the purpose of 
scholarships and loans, which are thus not affected by his participation in the program. 

LEGISLATIVE INTERN PROGRAM 

When the Mississippi Legislature is in session, selected political science students 
may participate in an Internship program which permits them to observe the state 
law-making process. Students serve as aids to legislators and legislative committees, 

SPECIAL PROGRAMS 47 



performing a variety of tasks such as research, writing, and marking up bills. Students 
also take part in a seminar with other interns to examine the legislative process. See 
Political Science 452. 

STUDY ABROAD PROGRAMS 

Millsaps College maintains cooperative arrangements with the Junior Year Abroad 
program at the Institute for American Universities at Aix-en-Provence, in France, and 
with the British Studies at Oxford summer study program. Other study abroad programs are 
available in most countries of Western Europe as well as in Latin America. Students inter- 
ested in receiving college credit for such study may receive information concerning these 
programs from the chairman of the appropriate department or from the Academic Dean. 

COOPERATIVE PROGRAMS 

With the permission of the Associate Dean and the chairman of the department 
involved, full-time students in Millsaps College may enroll for certain courses at either 
Belhaven College or Tougaloo College without additional fees. Belhaven College is 
located a few blocks east of the Millsaps campus. Tougaloo College is eight miles 
north, at the edge of Jackson. 

These cooperative arrangements afford an opportunity for students to enroll in 
courses either not offered at Millsaps College or not scheduled during the appropriate 
semester or at an acceptable class hour. 

ECONOMICS— ACCOUNTING— ADMINISTRATION 
INTERN PROGRAM 

Students have the opportunity of obtaining specialized training and practical 
experience through an established Internship Program. The program involves prominent 
regional and national business organizations and an agency of the Federal government. 
The student's training is conducted and supervised by competent management personnel 
according to a predetermined agenda of activities. Evaluation of the student's participa- 
tion and progress provides the basis for granting appropriate academic credit. See 
offerings 451-452 in the Department of Economics, Accounting and Administration. 

MILLSAPS-GULF COAST RESEARCH LABORATORY 
COOPERATIVE PROGRAM 

Students at Millsaps College, especially those in the Natural Sciences, are per- 
mitted to enroll for one or more of the following courses at the Gulf Coast Research 
Laboratory as a part of their regular program of studies. The Laboratory is situated near 
Ocean Springs, 180 miles south of Jackson. Summer work at the laboratory provides

The Mathematics courses at Millsaps are intended (1) to offer an experience 
in a sufficient variety of basic and liberal subjects to constitute the foundation of that 
general education which is regarded as essential to balanced development and intelligent 
citizenship; (2) to meet the needs of four types of students — (a) those who will 
proceed to the usual academic degrees at the end of four years; (b) those who will 
enter graduate or professional schools after three or four years; (c) those who are 
preparing for teaching, scientific investigation, or both; and (d) those who will take 
less than a complete academic program. 

An effort is made to show the student that there is an intangible worth to mathe- 
matics; that there is such a thing as mathematics as an art, mathematics for its own 
sake, mathematics for the sheer joy of comparing, analyzing, and imagining.

Social movements, the military-industrial complex, delivery of health care, plan- 
ning for a new urban society, the law and social change — these are some of the topics 
which sociology studies. By focusing on social organizations such as the family, church, 
class and caste and political institutions a student can see how he is both a product 
and an actor within his society. Anthropology provides a comparison by studying similar 
processes in other societies such as the Pygnnies, the Eskimo and the Semai. 

Courses in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology are planned ( 1 ) to 
develop the liberal arts student's knowledge about the nature of societies and how 
institutions are maintained as well as changed. (2) To give students a greater percep- 
tion and understanding of social processes in a changing world, so they may lead more 
effective and enlightened careers in sociological and anthropological research; social 
work, teaching, law, and the ministry; as well as community organization, social change, 
and urban planning.

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 is counted as approximately one-third of the grade for 
the semester. 

"A" represents superior work. 

"B" represents above the average achievement in the regularly pre- 
scribed work. 

"C" represents an average level of achievement in the regularly pre- 
scribed work. 

"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 failure. 

"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. 



The completion of any academic course with a grade of "D" 
shall entitle a student to one quality point for each semester hour, 
the completion of a course with a grade of "C" for the semester 
shall entitle a student to two quality points for each semester hour, 
the completion of a course with a grade of "B" for the semester 
shall entitle a student to three quality points for each semester hour, 
and the completion of a course with a grade of "A" shall entitle 
a student to four quality points for each semester hour. A quality 
point index is arrived at by dividing the total number of quality 
points by the number of academic hours taken. The change from a 
3:00 to a 4:00 quality point index became effective at Millsaps 
College on June 5, 1968. 



The following number of hours and quality points is required: 

For sophomore rating . . 24 hours; 24 quality points 

For junior rating 52 hours; 72 quality points 

For senior rating 90 hours; 144 quality points 

A student's classification for the entire year is on the basis of 
his status at the beginning of the fall semester.

ither institutions will be considered, but the student will be con- 
idered eligible only if he has the required index both on the work 
lone at Millsaps and on his college courses as a whole. 



A full-time student with Junior standing who has an over-all 
quality point index of 3.0 may during the first semester of his Junior

elf a candidate for honors. Admission requires acceptance of the 
tudent by the chairman of the department and approval by the 
Honors Council. Entrance into the Honors Program becomes effective

idmitted into the Program will in the second semester of his Junior 
'ear enroll with his honors adviser in a directed study entitled 
Honors I (Colloquium). Enrollment in Honors II and Honors III 
(Research) will ordinarily follow in the fall and spring semesters of 
he Senior year. A letter grade will be given for each of these 
:ourses. The three semesters of honors work are intended to culmi- 
late in an honors paper to be presented to the Honors Council and 
defended before an examining board. 

The first semester in the Honors Program consists of an Honors 
Zolloquium designed to bring together for the purpose of intellectual 
Jxchange all those students participating in the Honors Program,

A freshman student may not enroll for more than eight hours 
Df laboratory science courses in any one semester except upon the 
recommendation of the student's official adviser. 

Any student who is permitted to take more than eighteen 
semester hours of work will be charged one-half the special student 
tuition for each additional hour per semester. 

No student can be registered for courses in another college at 
the same time he is enrolled in Millsaps without the written per- 
mission of the Associate Dean. 



A student cannot change classes or drop classes or take up 
new classes except by the consent of the Associate Dean, his faculty 
adviser, and all faculty 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, he receives an F 
in that course. 



A student desiring to withdraw from college within any term 
must obtain permission from the Associate Dean and file a withdrawal 
:ard. 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." 

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 may result from habitual delinquency in 
class, or any other circumstance which prevents the student from 
fulfilling the purpose for which he should have come to college. 

The college reserves the right to cancel the registration of any 
student at any time. In such a case, the pro rata 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 entitled to a report card or to a transcript of credits until he has 
settled his account in the Business Office. 



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

Students who are requested not to re-enter because of academic 
failure 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. 



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 1 .5 will be placed 
on probation. Restricted attendance privileges apply for all 
courses In which such students are enrolled. 

Students may be removed from probation by making a 2.00 
quality point index during a regular semester or during a 
summer session at Mlllsaps College in which the student is 
enrolled for at least twelve hours credit. A student Is asked 
not to re-enroll at Millsaps College if he is on academic proba- 
tion more than two semesters during his college program. 

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. Restricted atten- 
dance privileges may apply for such a student In all courses in 
which he is enrolled. 



ProbaHon 



Irregular attendance Is an indication to the faculty member that 
the students may be having difficulties adjusting to the work of the 
course or to college in general. The primary responsibility for coun- 
seling with students with respect to their absence rests with the 
faculty member; but in the following circumstances, the faculty 
member is expected to bring the student's unsatisfactory attendance 
record to the attention of the Associate Dean: 

1 . For a freshman — whenever his total absences are equal to 
twice the number of class meetings per week. 

2. For any student — 

a. When he has been absent three successive class meetings 
for reasons unknown to the instructor. 

b. Whenever a student's absence record Is such that he is 
in danger of failing the course. 

This reporting of absences to the Associate Dean is for counseling 
purposes only, and has no effect on the student's grade in the course. 
Individual faculty members decide for themselves the manner 
and extent to which absences alone will affect a student's grade. 
Each faculty member is expected to outline his policy in this respect 
to each class at the beginning of each semester. This may extend 
to dismissal from the course with a grade of "F" for reasons solely 
of absence.

Absences are excusable only by the Individual faculty member, 
3ut an excused absence does not excuse the student from being 
-esponsibie for the course work that was presented in his absence. 
Explanations for a student's absence provided by a parent, medical 
doctor, or a member of the faculty or administration may be helpful 
to the faculty member, but such explanations are not in themselves 
=xcuses. This is particularly important in the case of absences involv- 
ng missed examinations, late assignments, laboratory sessions and 
jimiiar scheduled commitments. Faculty members, however, may not 
=xcuse students from attendance on the two days preceding and the 
two days following vacation periods without the express permission 
Df the Associate Dean. 

Each student is responsible for becoming familiar with the 
general attendance policy of the College and with the particular 
policies operative in his classes. Further elaboration of the policies 
and procedures relating to attendance are to be found in the student 
handbook, MAJOR FACTS. 



Students may elect to be exempt from final examinations in the 
semester in which they complete their comprehensive examinations, 
but only in those courses in which they have a "C" average or better. 
It shall be understood, however, that this exemption does not insure 
the student 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 
semester in which they complete their comprehensive, scholastic re- 
quirements being met 

Seniors may be allowed one special examination in any subject 
taken and failed in the senior year. Permission for such examination 
must be secured from the Associate Dean. 



Millsaps students are expected to act with honesty and integrity 
in personal, social, and academic relationships, and with consideration 
and concern for the community, its members, and its property. The 
Board of Trustees and the administration affirm the right of the 
individual to the privacy of his room. The use of intoxicating bev- 
erages is not a part of, nor does it contribute to, the total educational 
emphasis of Millsaps College. The use, possession, or distribution of 
intoxicants, narcotics, or dangerous drugs, such as marijuana and 
LSD, except as expressly permitted by law, is not permitted. The 
Board of Trustees does not approve of the use of alcoholic beverages 
on the Millsaps campus. Gambling is not permitted within the pre- 
cincts of the College. 

A more comprehensive statement is contained in the student 
handbook. Specific regulations pertaining to academics, residence halls 
and other facets of campus life are included in this and other publi- 
cation.s available through the Student Affairs Office.

Student Life 





•>]•' .'''■"■^■■■'■"^•-^sSSi^'-j " 




Millsaps College, as an institution of The United Methodist 
Church, seeks to be a genuinely Christian college. The faculty is 
composed of scholars who are committed to religious and ethical 
values and who strive to fulfill the highest ideals of personal devotion 
and of community citizenship. The great majority of the students 
are members of various Christian denominations or groups whose 
purposes and interests are in consonance with those of the College. 
The religious life of the College centers around the churches of 
Jackson and the campus religious program. 

Stimulation and coordination of the religious life of the campus 
is the function of the Director of Religious Life and of the Committee 
on Religious Activities. The Director of Religious Life maintains direct 
contact with student religious groups to encourage and support their 
activities, and his office provides religious counseling and assistance 
both to groups and to individual students. The Religious Activities 
Committee, consisting of faculty and student members, attempts to 
determine the religious needs of the college community and, in 
cooperation with the Director of Religious Life, to provide special 
programs and emphases as required. 

Student religious groups vary widely and in recent years have 
tended to become less formal and structured than formerly. Students 
desiring the more structured type of young adult programs are en- 
couraged to affiliate with established activities in local churches of 
their choice. Some campus groups are organized along denominational 
lines, while others have a more ecumenical orientation and attempt 
to provide discussion, study, activities, and projects which will appeal 
to all students, whether or not they are affiliated with a specific 
church. An effort is made to provide some opportunities for regular 
worship on the campus for all students, and for special programs, 
lecturers, and other activities as appropriate. 

The Ministerial League has provided special programs and field 
work appropriate to the needs of students preparing for the Christian 
ministry or other full-time religious vocations. The Director of Town 
and Country Work offers courses in the Department of Religion 
bearing on the opportunities and responsibilities of the parish ministry. 
The Director also works with those students holding church appoint- 
ments and preparing to go into the active ministry, helping them to 
plan and organize adequate programs in their parishes. 

All administrators and faculty members consider it a part of 
their responsibilities to counsel with students about their religious 
life and problems in an effort to help the student come to a mature 
interpretation of the total life experience. In this maturing process 
the development of sound religious and ethical values and commit- 
ment is considered a very necessary element. 



RELIGIOUS 
ACTIVITIES 



Millsaps College recognizes that its responsibility for liberal 
education goes beyond provision of a curriculum of academic courses 
and credits. 

The Millsaps Convocation Series is designed to offer rich co- 
curricular opportunities to Millsaps students and to the general public, 
opportunities for awareness and appreciation of the arts, for under- 



CONVOCAi

standing of the work of the various sciences, and for alertness to the 
intellectual and social issues which responsible persons must face 
intelligently. 

The Series consists of lectures, plays, movies, readings, concerts, 
recitals, panels, symposia, open forums, and other programs led by 
students, faculty, and visiting lecturers, performers, or public figures. 
All these have to do with the true aim of liberal education: the 
liberation of the mind to grasp the world of nature and of human 
experience and action in all its richness and complexity, and to respond 
with awareness, sensitivity, concern, and mature judgment. 



The athletic policy of Millsaps College is based on the premise 
that athletics exist for the benefit of the students and not primarily 
to enhance the prestige and publicity of the college. 

It is believed that competitive sports, conducted in an atmosphere 
of good sportsmanship and fair play, can make a significant contribu- 
tion, in the same way as other student activities, to the complete 
physical, emotional, moral, and mental development of the well- 
rounded individual and that they are thus an integral part of a 
program of liberal education. Toward this end, an attempt is made to 
provide a sports-for-all program and to encourage as many students 
as possible to participate in some form of intramural or intercollegiate 
athletic competition. 

The program for men includes football, basketball, baseball, 
tennis, golf, archery, and track. There is no intercollegiate program 
for women. 

The program is conducted on guidelines established by the 
National Collegiate Athletic Association of which Millsaps College is 
a member. 

Those who participate in intercollegiate athletics are required to 
observe and maintain the same academic standards as other students. 

In scheduliVig games, preference is given to colleges that conduct 
an athletic program on a basis similar to that at Millsaps. 

The program for men provides competition among campus or- 
ganizations in basketball, volleyball, softball, tennis, track, soccer, 
and golf. Rules are made and administered by the Intramural Council, 
composed of student representatives with the Intramural Director as 
an ex-officio member. 

The program for women is administered by The Women's Intra- 
mural Council, whose student members head the teams that compete 
in such sports as badminton, volleyball, tennis, basketball, and softball. 
Election to the Majorette Club provides recognition for athletic par- 
ticipation. 

The gymnasium provides a large playing floor for volleyball, 
badminton, and basketball. It has dressing rooms for all teams, a 
room for visiting teams, trainer's room complete with equipment for 
injuries, a class room, and shower and locker rooms for students.

The baseball diamond, separate from the football field, is also 
used as the intramural soccer field. There are also Softball diamonds 
and a quarter-mile track. 

Five tennis courts are situated near the gymnasium. 



The Purple and White is the official student newspaper of the 
College, and its staff is composed of individuals interested in campus 
journalism. The P&W endeavors to provide coverage of all Millsaps 
events, as well as to serve as a forum for discussion and exploration 
of ideas. 

Now in its sixty-sixth year, the Bobashela is the annual student 
publication of Millsaps College, attempting to give a comprehensive 
view of campus life. "Bobashela" is an Indian name for good friend. 

Through Stylus, the College literary magazine, students interested 
in creative writing are given an opportunity to see their work in 
print. The publication comes out twice each year and contains the 
best poetry, short stories, and essays submitted by Millsaps students. 



Open by audition to all students, the Singers represent Millsaps 
in public performances, campus programs, annual tours throughout 
the state, and to other areas of our United States. In recent years the 
choir has traveled to Colorado; to Washington, D.C.; to Atlanta, to 
record for the National Protestant Hour; and to Mexico. The choir 
has sung with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra three times, the 
Jackson Symphony, the Chicago Chamber Orchestra, and the New 
Orleans Philharmonic. In 1969 Dave Brubeck appeared with the 
choir for performances both here and in Atlanta for the Southeast 
Choral Conductors Convention. Last year the choir performed with 
the Jackson Symphony Orchestra In the regular concert season. Mem- 
bership earns two semester hours of extracurricular credit for the 
year's work. 



The Troubadours represent Millsaps College locally, throughout 
Mississippi, the South, and frequently abroad. In 1964 they toured 
military Installations in Germany and France for eight weeks. In 1967 
they were featured In a concert with the Memphis Symphony Orches- 
tra. During that summer they went to the Caribbean Command, per- 
forming for the Armed Forces under the auspices of the USO. In 
1 969, they returned to Europe for eight weeks, with programs sche- 
duled in Germany, Holland, and Belgium. In 1970, they performed 
at U. S. bases in Greenland, Labrador, and Newfoundland. In the 
summer of 1971 they toured Germany, Italy, Holland, and Belgium 
for eight weeks on their third USO tour to Europe. 

Fourteen students comprise the singing group and present a 
variety program of popular, folk, and semi-classical music, in a 
lively, fast-moving show that uses choreography and is accompanied 
by piano, percussion, and bass.

The dramatic club of the College is The Millsaps Players, which 
presents four three-act plays each year. Major productions of recent 
years include "The American Dream," "The Sea Gull," "The Three- 
penny Opera," "My Fair Lady," "Julius Caesar," "Camelot," "Romeo 
and Juliet," "Medea," "Becket," "Androcles and the Lion," "The 
Zoo Story," "Camino Real," "Macbeth," "Luther," "Oliver!" "Anti- 
gone," and "The Lion in Winter." 

Membership in The Players is open to all students, and effective 
participation in the productions earns one extracurricular credit each 
semester. 

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

Meetings of the Student Senate are held weekly, with other 
meetings called when the student body president considers them 
necessary. All members of the student body automatically become 
members of the Student Association. 

The duties and functions of the Student Senate are to act in 
the administration of student affairs, to cooperate with the adminis- 
tration in the orientation program of the college, to apportion the 
student activities fee, to maintain understanding between students and 
faculty, and to work for the benefit of the student body and for 
the progress of the College. 

Alpha Epsilon Delta is an honorary pre-medical fraternity, 
founded at the University of Alabama in 1926. Its purpose is to pro- 
mote the interests of pre-medical students. Leadership, scholarship, 
expertness, character, and personality are the qualities by which stu- 
dents are judged for membership. Alpha Epsilon Delta strives to 
bridge the gap between pre-medical and medical schools. 

Alpha Psi Omega, a national honorary dramatic fraternity, recog- 
nizes members of the Millsaps Players for their effective participation 
in acting, directing, make-up, stage management, costuming, lighting, 
or publicity. Each year the name of the outstanding graduating senior 
member of the organization is engraved on a trophy, which is kept 
in the college trophy case. 

Beta Beta Beta, established at Millsaps in 1968, is a national 
honor fraternity for students in the biological sciences. Its purposes 
are to stimulate sound scholarship, to promote the dissemination of 
scientific truth, and to encourage investigation of the life sciences. 
Monthly meetings are held to discuss new ideas, research, and other 
material pertinent to biology and related sciences. Activities include
