Within the pages of the 1961 BROOM is 
revealed the promise of Delta State College's 
future growth. Progress is evident in its in- 
creased student body and faculty, renovations 
in the school plant, and the addition of five 
new buildings to the campus. 

Delta State recognizes the need to expand 
its facilities to benefit its students and the 
BROOM depicts the campus life of Delta 
State revolving around these improvements. 



Delta State has steadilv progressed since 
its formation in 1921 and will continue to 
progress. The 1961 BROOM is a tribute to 
that growth.

DEDICATION 

In 1912 Delta State graduated 
a young man who was destined to 
return shortly to our campus and 
to assume a large responsibility 
for the planning and execution of 
our present growth. 

During the twelve years he has 
served as financial secretary, he 
has worked •jvith state officials, as 
well as the administration. facult\. 
staff, and student body, to make 
Delta State the fastest growing 
senior college in Mississippi. 

It is with pride and gratitude 
that we. the Senior Class of 1960- 
61. dedicate this year's BROOM 
to HUGH C. SMITH, who sym- 
bolizes the adventurous spirit of 
growth and progress which moti- 
vates each of our undertakings.

In the words of Benjamin Disraeli. "Change is con- 
stant.' What we consider to be the zenith of progress 
at Delta State College will no doubt appear as' out of date 
to those who teach and learn here in 2000 A.D. as the 
above picture, made when Delta State College was Delta 
State Teachers College, appears to you in 1960-61. 

To those who know Delta State College only as the 
thriving institution it is today, be assured that much has 
preceded to make this possible, just as much will be 
required for the preservation and furtherance of Delta 
State College. 

The function of Delta State College, founded in 1924 
by legislative action for the training of teachers, was 
broadened by legislative action in 1955.

Ours is a teaching job at Delta State College. This 
teaching job is well summarized by William G. Salton- 
stall, Principal of the Phillips Exeter Academy, who 
believes "It's the most important job in the world." 

Delta State College, sustained by the efforts of men 
and women who dared to support a young institution, 
is loved and revered. The time is ripe for today's harvest 
of mental, moral, physical, and social opportunities pro- 
vided under the leadership of Dr. James Milton Ewing. 
President, just as this and the future will be the fulfill- 
ment of the wise planning and leadership of Dr. Ewing: 
Dr. William Marion Kethley, President Emeritus; and 
the late Jim Broom, First President of Delta State 
College.

Miss Patricia Middleton 
Editor, BROOM 
Delta State College 
Cleveland, Miss. 

Dear Miss Middleton: 

Thank you for your flattering invitation to judge the most 
beautiful girl on the Delta State campus. 

What a difficult choice, too, we nnight add. All the girls 
were so pretty that it was an extremely difficult deceison. 
After much balloting behind closed doors, we finally selected 
the young lady (whose name we do not know) and have indicated 
our choice by writting "winner" on the back of her picture. 

"We enjoyed very much our recent appearance at Delta State and 
are looking forward to presenting another concert there in the 
not too distant future. 

. --^ Sincerely yours.

was a 29 yard pass from Don Ward to Winston Scrivner. 

From the 4 yard line Don plunged over for the first touchdown. 
Billy Bowman helped to set up the second score with a drive deep 

into Florence territory and Dewey Bostick tallied for the Green and

up the fourth win. 

Gerald Lance plowed over for the first TD. 

Frank Greenlee wasn't through with his guidance for the States- 
men yet. And "Moon Pie" Thomas did the honors to give the 
Statesmen a 20-0 lead. 

Bennie Price blocked a punt to give the Statesmen possession. And 
the strong forward line of Statesmen, including Raymond Bell, Joe 
Mathis and Jimmy Fisackerly opened the way to paydirt.

"This was the best team effort we have had all year." said Coach 
Chad after the impressive win of our Homecoming. 

Ira Coates intercepted a Northeast pass and carried it 32 yards for 
aTD. 

The score itself stands as proof of a strong drive: the stubborn 
Delta defense refused to yield.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION 

Every student at Delta State is a member of the Student Government Association. 
Through this organization, each is able to state his views on any subject of student 
concern, and each can work for any condition that he may wish to exist at Delta 
State. The Executive Cabinet and the honor councils are the representatives of the 
"voice of the students." Participation in student government is encouraged by the 
faculty because of its value as training for life in a democracy.

DELTA STATE BAND AND DELTA BELLES 



The picture iin the opposite page is. of course, familiar to all stufleiils of Delta 
State: the one below, however, is actually better known to friends of Delta State 
throughout the country, for here the Delta State Marching Band and Delta Belles 
are pictured in the concert formation that the groups use when performing at such 
meetings as the National Junior Chamber of Commerce Convention, for which the 
Band and Belles travelled to St. Louis in June of 1960. and for the annual meeting 
of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, held in Detroit in August. 1960. The Band and 
Belles also performed on a nation-wide televised show during the halftime of the 
Houston Oilers and Dallas Cowboys pro-football game.

CHI 



■Ita was organized in the spring of 1960. Colors of garnet and 
d the American Beauty Rose are familiar to all who wear the 
. pin. The motto, "Friendship, Charity, and Loyalty,'' truly sym- 
ich girl who helps make up the Chi Delta Sorority. 
i^ni uelta girls have received many honors. In 1959 Audrey, Kathleen, 
and Mary Ann were elected beauties. Mary Ann was chosen most beautiful 
girl and was a finalist in the 1960 Lady of the Lake Contest. Audrey was 
the reigning Lady of the Lake and was a representative in the Miss Mis- 
sissippi Content. The Gary sisters, Shula and Sharon, held titles of Miss 
Hospitality and Miss Bohvar County of 1960, respectively. 

When cheerleaders were elected for 1960, Chi Delta came in loud and 
clear with Brenda and Pat. Pat was a head cheerleader. Pat was also 
elected secretary and Jane treasurer of SGA. Other honors for Pat were 
friendliest girl, class favorite and Valentine Queen. Chi Delta was also 
well represented in the nationally renowned Delta Belles and Band.
