Millsaps College, located in Jackson, Alississippi, is the property of the Meth- odist Episcopal Cnurch South. It is owned and controlled jointly by tne Missis- sippi and North Mississippi Conferences. It was estabLshed under a charter is- sued by the Mississippi Legislature m the year 1S90. The terms of the charter prescribe that the incorporators " mav accept donations of real and personal property for the benefit of the College hereafter to be established by them, and contributions of monev or negotiable securities of every kind in aid of the en- dowment of such College, and may confer degrees and giye certificates of scholar- ship, and do and perform all other acts for the benefit of said institution and the promotion of its welfare that are not repugnant to the Constitution and By-Laws of this State or of the UnUed States, subject, however, to the approval of the said two Conferences. " The College has its remote origin in the general policy of the iMethodist Church to maintain institutions under its own control for higher learning in the arts and sciences, as well as for special training of voung m.n iters. At the annual session of the Mississippi Conference of V cksburg, on December 7, 1888, the foll ' )wing reiolutions were adopted bv a large majority of the Confer- ence: " I. That a College for males, under the auspices and control of the iNIethodist Episcopal Church South, ought to be established at some central and accessible point in the State of Mississippi ; " 2. That a committee of three laymen and three preachers be appointed to confer With a Lke committee to be appointed by the North iMississipp; Conference to formulate jjlans and to receive offers of donations of lands, buildings, or money for that purpo:;e, and to report to the next session of th.s conference. " In accordance with this action, the President of the Conference, Bishop R. K. Hargrove, appointed the committee: Rev. T. L. i Ielleii, Rev. W. C. Black, Rev. A. F. Watkins, Maj. R. W. Millsaps, Col. ' . L. Nugent, and Dr. Luther vSexton. On December 12, 1888, the North Mississippi Conference met in vStarksville, Mississippi, Bishop C. B. Galloway presiding. The Rev. T. L. Mellen appeared and reported the action taken by the Mississippi Conference. The following tran- script from the North Mississippi Conference Journal gives the response made bv that body : " Resolved, 1. That a College for the education of bo ■s and young men should be established in the State of Mississippi under the auspices of the Methodist Epis- 18 copal Church South; 2. that a committee of three laymen and three ministers be appointed to confer with a like committee already appointed by the Mississippi Conference. " The following committee was accordingly appointed: Rev. J.J. Wheat, Rev. S. M. Thames, Rev. T. J. Newell, Hon. G. D. Shands, Capt. D. L. vSweatman, and Mr. J. B. Streater. To the action of these Conferences we may trace the direct origai of the College. The joint commission, constituted by the action summarized above, met in the city of Jackson in January, 1889. The Rev. Dr. J. J. Wheat was called to the chair. In stating the purpose of the meeting, he made a stirring appeal in behalf of the proposition to establish a Methodist college in Mississippi for the education of young men. In response to this earnest appeal, Maj. R. W. Millsaps, a member of the commission, proposed to give $50,000 to endow the institution, provided the Methodists of Mississippi would give a sum equal to this amount for said pur- pose. This proposition was enthusiasticallv approved, and after a plan of pro- cedure was adopted, Bishop Chas. B. Galloway was invited to conduct a campaign in the interest of the proposed endowment fund. Under the direction of this dis- tinguished leader, the most gratifying progress was reported from time to time, The report submitted to the Conferences by the committee in December, 1889. refers to the movement in the following language : " The canvass, on account of the numerous necessitated absences of Bishop Galloway from the State, could not be continuously carried on, but even the partial canvass made, embracing not more than one-fifth of our territory, resulted in the most gratifying and encouraging success. The interest awakened in the enterprise has extended beyond the limits of our own Church and is felt b} ' every denomina- tion of Christians and by every section of the State. It is safe to say that no effort of Methodism has ever kindled such enthusiasm in our vState or evoked such liberal offerings to the Lord. The fact has been demonstrated that the Church is pro- foundly convinced that the College is absolutely a necessity. " The report con- tinues: " vSo high is the appreciation of the value of the proposed institution that numerous towns in the State nave entered into earnest competition to secure the location of the College within the limits of their respective borders, offering from $10,000 to $36,000, and from twenty to eightv acres of land. " In December, 1889, Rev. A. F. Watkins, a member of the Mississippi Confer- ence, was appointed a special agent to cooperate with Bishop Galloway in all mat- ters pertaining to the endowment of the proposed College. As the work of raising the sum designated in the original proposition progressed, and $25,000 had been collected, Maj. Millsaps, in the vear 1890, paid $25,000 into the College treasury. In December, 1S92, the Rev. J. W. Chambers was appointed agent for the College, and on December 30, 1893, he reported that the full amount had been col- lected to meet the terms of Maj. Millsap ' s proposition, and thereupon $25,000 was immediatelv paid by Maj. M.llsaps to the Executive Committee, and the following resolution was adopted; 19 " ReS ' ilved, That the Executive Committee return our most heartfelt thanks to Maj. R. W. Millsaps for his second gift of ;p25,ooo, this day turned over to us. For his princely liberality and unfaltering interest in the great enterprise so happily and successfully inaugurated. Church and State owe him a large debt of gratitude. " The Conference, having provided for a Board of Trustees, the joint commis- sion dissolved in Januarv, 1890. This Board, to which was referred the matter of organizing the College, was composed of the following gentlemen: Bishop Chas. B. Galloway, President. Rev. W. C. Black, D.D. Rev. J. J. Wheat, D.D. Rev. S. M. Thames. Rev. T. T. Newell. • ' ' Rev. R. M. Standifer. Rev. T. L. Mellen. ■ . ■ ■ Rev. A. F. Watkins. Rev. C. G. Anders, D.D. . . Hon. G. D. Shands. Capt. D. L. Sweatman. Mr. J. B. vStreater. Mr. Tohn Trice. Maj. R. W. Millsaps. Col. " W. L. Nugent. " Dr. Luther Sexton. iHon. M. M. Evans. After the Board organized under the charter, the question of locating the Col- lege was considered with great care. The Board met repeatedly to consider the offers made bv different towns, and finally, on May 20, 1891, while in session at Winona, M.ssissippi, decided to locate the College in Jackson, the capital of the State. The citizens of Jackson contributed $21,000 for grounds and buildings, and to this sum Maj. M llsaps added $15,000. Plans for a commodious main build- ing were immediately procured, grounds were purchased, and in a comparatively short time buildings were in process of erection. When it became evident that everything would soon be in readiness for formal opening of the College for the reception of students, the Board of Trustees, at a meeting held in Jackson, Aprd 28, 1892, began the work of organizing a faculty of instruction. The Rev. W. B. i Iurrah was elected President. Many applications were con- sidered for professorships, and Mr. N. A. Patilo was elected Professor of Mathe- matics, and Mr. L. W. Weber was elected Professor of the English Language and Literature. Prof. Weber was the acting Professor of EngLsh at the Southwest- ern Un,ver.5ity, Georgetown, Texas, when he was bv tnis action called to Millsaps College. At a subsequent meeting of the Board of Trustees held July 13, 1892, iMr. G. C. Swearingen was elected Professor of Latin and Greek, and the Rev. M. M. Black was elected Principal of the Preparatory Department. Both of these gentlemen had recently taken post-graduate degrees at the Vanderbilt University, Nashville Tennesiee. The necessary buildings having been erected, the first scholastic session began with appropriate ceremonies September 29, 1892. At the regular meeting of the Board of Trustees in June, 1S93, Prof. A. M. Muckenfuss was elected Professor of Chemistry and Physics. In June, 1894, Rev. M. M. Black resigned the principalship of the Preparatory Department to enter on the work of regular pastorate. In reorganizing the depart- ment, it was made more distinctively a training school with independent jurisdic- tion, and Prof. R. vS. Ricketts was elected Head Master, with Pro ' . E. h- Bailev as Assistant Master. The formal establishment of the Department of Modern Languages and His- tory was effected by action of the Board of Trustees in June, 1897, and Prof. J. P. Hanner was elcted to fill the chair thus created. Work, however, had been offered in these subjects prior to this Lme. The organization indicated bv this review represents the status of affairs ex- isting up to that t,me; but the peisoiuiel of the Faculty has been changed in sev- eral departments. Dr. J. A. Moore was elected Professor in Mathematics in June, 1894, to succeed Prof. N. A. Patilo, which chair he has held since. In June, 1900, Prof. D. H. Bishop was elected to the chair of English to succeed Prof. Weber. Prof. Bishop held this chair, where he won the highest regard and respect of the Faculty, Board of Trustees, and especially the student-body, until 1904, when he was elected to the chair of Enghsh in the State Uuiversitv at Oxford, Mississippi. In I goo Prof. B. E. Young was elected to the chair of Modern Languages and His- tory, which place he held unt.l 1904, when he was elected Adjunct Professor in Romance Language in Vanderbilt Un.vers.ty. In 1903 Prof. J. E. A ' almslev was elected Acting Professor of Modern Languages and History, as Prof. Young was away in Europe studying. In 1904 Prof. Walmsley was elected Professor m His- tory, which was made separate from the Modern Languages. Professor OLn H. Moore was elected to the chair of Modern Languages. To the chair of English, made vacant by the resignation of Prof. Bishop, Dr. A. A. Kern was elected. In 1900 Prof. E. L. Ba.lev resigned as AsSj.stant Master ,n the Preparatory Depart- ment, and Prof. G. ' . Huddleston was elected in his place. Dr. J. M. SulLvan was elected to the chair of Physics and Chemistry in 1902 to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Prof. Muckenfuss. The remarkable facilities for conducting a law school in Jackson led to the establishment in 1896 of a Law Department. The Hon. Edward Mayes, ex-Chan- cellor of the iMississippi State University, and for over fourteen years a professor of law in that institution, was engaged to take active control of this department. Dr. Mayes has associated with him as active professors Judge A. H. Whitfield, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the State, and Judge Wm. R. Harper, a dis- tinguished member of the Jackson bar. In addition to the buildings first provided, consisting of the main college build- ing, the President ' s house and houses for the accommodation of students, the facil- ities of the institution were greatly enlarged during the session of 1895-96 by the generosity of Maj. M.llsaps in the gJt of the Webster Science Hall, at a cost of $10,- 000. In 190 1 Mr. Dan. A. James, of Yazoo City, built an observatory for the col lege in honor of the memory of his father, Mr. Peter James, and of his brother, I Ir. Samuel James, and furnished it with a magnificent telescope, thus enabling us to offer the finest advantages in the study of Astronomv. 21 The evolutionary process through which Millsaps College has passed during the first ten years of its history has developed an ever-increasing demand for better dormitory and dining-hall facilities. This need was supplied in the gift of Maj. Millsaps of the property formerly known as Jackson College. The splendid brick structure thus secured, together with other buildings admirably adapted to college uses, enables the institution to adequately meet the demands made upon it. With an endowment of more than, and buildings and grounds worth approx- imately $100,000 more, it rests on a foundation which guaranteees its perpetuity. It has the support of a great religious denomination, vet it is not sectarian in its policv, but numbers among its patrons representatives of all the Christian Churches. (3ne of the purposes the College keeps constantly in view is indicated by the follow- ing section of the Charter: " The cost of education shall, as far as practicable, be reduced to the lowest point consistent with efficient operation of said College; and every reasonable effort shall be made to bring a collegiate education within the ability of the poorer classes of the State " td z c 23 H OFFICERS.

Trv where I might, nothing could be found of its mighty lawyers, destined to purify our political atmosphere; of tlie preachers, almost bishops on their grad- uation dav; o:- its financiers, with their Midas touch coining millions and endowing their alma mater with half. I read the great current biographies; they were not there. I searched the history of our country; none were there found. Our pro- fessors had told us those graduates intending to turn the whole world oyer in a day, or, with a sugar-coated dose, cure all known evils, would be sorely disappointed. But thev spoke of college men in general — there was real merit and high ideals in our class, and all had the invincible spirit to strive and not to yield. The world had grown so cold and unappreciative of my talent that long ago I had become pessimistic, and finally resigned to my surroundings. But surely it could not have been so cruel to all. One dav I went back to the scenes of my college days to see if happily I might trace mv comrades ' course in life. The buildings were all changed, and it looked like home no more. McGilvray was the only one left. Some preps, upon whom we had looked with utter disdain, irreverently sat in our seats — insolent, arrogant, and conceited. The learned doctors stared at my question, and even the Professor of Current History looked blank. One or two rememoered some, but the rest had passed out of their minds. Friendless I was, and a stranger, ignored on the spot where once I had power. Dejected, I went otit and sat under the old elm tree by the college steps. Presently, I saw a book lying in the grass. The backs looked familiar, and I found it was published bv Hinds Noble. On the front was wTit- ten, " This will all mysteries explain. " I knew he had been authority on all points in my school days. Suddenly it dawned upon me that it could explain Xaugnty- Five ' s whereabouts. I opened it. The frontispiece was the picture of a little cabin, snugly nestled in the woods. In the yard was an old-fashioned well, a battling board, and all the surroundings bespoke antiquity and satisfaction. Upon the stile — for gate there w-as none — sat a burly, awkward-looking man, holding a har- nessed mule by the bridle, and with the other hand gesticulating with another rus tic. His hair and bristling beard were dark-red, and bv this I knew it was that Carruth. I was surprised at the sight, for he had given great proniise in college. Having a fascination for pictures, I hastily turned over the leaves to see if I could find another. There was one it seemed of a tramp, with a full allowance of stomach, aimlessly ambling along. That, at least, I knew had nothing to do with 36 our class. But the man looked familiar. His shoes were tied together and swung over his shoulder. He carried a carpet-bag satcnel, which had the catch broken, and was hanging open. Within I saw a bulk) ' sermon, a bottle, and a letter from New Mexico. And I knew it was Hall. I turned over, disgusted with the slanderous picture, till a more pleasing one met my eyes. It was a man of physical rotundity, as well as apparent metaphys- ical profundity. He was doing nothing, and had evidently become proficient in the practice. In every line of his features was written conscious and indifferent superiority. Beside his chair lay a huge pile of, ' 0,5, which he seemed to prize highly. One lay open on the table and underscored with a large blue pencil was J. B. Ricketts ' name. Another was Weems before a glass, striving to outeat his image. Either from fatness or a boil, he could not rise; but he was telling yarns to a gaping crowd. I began to read of McGee, for the book said he had gotten contrarj ' , and would not let his picture be made. It told of tne hard road he had traveled, of the diffi- culties surmounted, of his love for the unfortunate convicts, and added he was then at Oakley Farm preaching, with his white duck suit of clothes. I could not at the time hunt up our President, so I read on: " R. P. Fikes has procured him a work, a wife, and a wig, and is in a prosperous condition. He has twelve churches, preaches at three each Sunday, and eats chicken pie as often. He has only one sermon, and will continue to give it till the congregation profit by the teaching therein. One thing his preaching has accom- plished — his sermon is so long it gives the people a better conception of eternity. " T. M. Bradley had him a mule and a piny- woods circuit. He had, in addition, the Methodist preachers ' failing, an amazingly large family. He had just held Quarterly Conference, and had gotten $8.00 and some vegetables. " Sally " Barrier had gotten a blow upon his head, and unconsciously turned State ' s evidence for stealing a turkey. But no one would believe him on oath. He was now on a slimy delta bayou trying to live out the romance of his " Legend of the Yazoos. " It would be some time before he got killed, for that was a very prolonged episode. " W. N. Duncan has won greatf ame in ' pounding out the gospel. ' " Then the pesky thing began to quote his sermon. I had great respect for his scholarship and I waded half-way through, then fell asleep. I heard afaint rumbling; it increased, and I distinguished the words, " Your Honor, we had a case similar to this in Kemper County. " Graham was pleading for a negro w ho had stolen a hog, and was telling off his points on his little finger. The scene changed. Purcell was thumping a rickety pulpit, and yelling at the top of his voice: " Men and women, loving sweethearts and beaux, we ' 11 have dinner on the grounds. " A train went by. I saw Simmons sitting complacently on a store step. He said he had been counting the trains all day and that was the third one. The nc)ise increased. I saw a dirty, dingy school-house on the hill. The chil- 37 dren were studying at the top of their voices, and on a three-legged punching-stool with his legs crossed and brass specs on h.s big nose, sat Allen. I heard a thundering sound, as of Talmage preaching to his thousands. M ' hy he should be in such a forsaken church I could not imagine; yet it was his sermon evidently. I drew nearer, and heard, " Betraved by the misgivings of time " ; and I knew O. W. Bradley was still preaching. The scene changed. It was a crowded theater, and the people were laughing till I thought their sides would split. On the stage was Pittman, his hair like a porcupine, a Collegian in one h p-pocket and a Jackson daily in the other. From them ]iroceeded all his wit. I listened, and hearing nothing at which to laugh asked a man near me why he was going on in this manner. He said : " It is not what that fellow is saying but what a fool he is making of himself. I nnself be- gan to laugh, and felt a pain in my side. Next, Prof. Ackland had me ry the col- lar, turning loose a long string of choice adjectives. Ibegged off, asked him would it rain, told him they should get him an assistant, and we parted better fnends than ever. ; " ' ' " ' ' . - . .. . ■. To mv surprise and consternation, none of us were bringing great things to pass. The world had been hard on us — all but our Lttle sponsor. I met her, a beautiful young ladv, and she spoke. iNIy spirit was revived by the faint realiza- tion that she, at least, had not forgotten Xaughty-Five. After all, we were out in the role of common men, do ng a daily work that must be done, working quietly and honestly, reforming maybe a nation still, but doing it l y reforming ourselves. 38 Our " Co-eus.

Mien chilling puffs of winter ' s cold and icv blasts, And days of sleet and snow and biting frost have passed, Then balmy breezes blow from out the southern zone, And fan the tight-cased buds till they are fully blown; Then wide in rich profusion on each bough they spread, And solid green supplants the dull autumnal red, Then slowly darkens as the summer days wear on, And turns to crimson when the summer days are gone — Just so the Freshman takes the faded Senior ' s place; Repletes the college-roll when Seniors run their race; The Freshmen, who are quite as new and green at first As are the tender leaves when from the buds they burst. Are, by a session spent in earnest quest of knowledge, Promoted to the Sophomore, the finest class in college. Enthused witn tennis, ball, and gym, And healthy, active, Strong of limb. We shun the monster Sickness grim, ' e robust vSophomores. If nightlv study was not late Sheepskins would linger, sure as fate. And when they came, be out of date, We sleepy Sophomores. When hard exams are on us thrust. And boys in other classes bust. The Soph ' mores always pass — I trust; We luck) ' Sophomores. We Soph ' mores are to love inclined; Our thoughts are of an amorous kind. Of our best girls we left behind ; We gallant Sophomores. As fine as ever Nature wrought. As smart as ever teacher taught. Whose futures are with brightness fraught, 5 We hopeful Sophomores. 46 College Buildings. THE PRESIDENT ' S WAY. " All right, Jimmy, " said the President of the college to the exceedingly bash- ful small boy who stood before him, " tell vour mother I thank her. Good-bye. " When Jimmy, thus dismissed, had withdrawn the President re-read a note he had brought. It was from Jimmy ' s mother, the landlady of one of the college boarding-houses, and ran something like this: ' Dr. E. R. Thompson: ' ' Dear vSir, — Some of my boys are planning a chicken-hunt for to-night. You had better look out for yours. Respectfully, Mrs. Brown. " " Very kind of her, " he mused, " yery kind indeed. " There was a twinkle in his blue eyes as he turned to his desk and drew forth an almanac. " The moon ' s all right for it, " he eaid. A bell rang , a class came into the office for recitation, and the day passed much as usual. It was near midnight, and the moon had set, when the President, crouching behind a grape arbor in his back yard, heard the gate close softly. There was the uneyen tread of seyeral pairs of feet, and whispers, at first indistinct, became quite audible, as seyeral dark forms approached. As they passed the arbor the Pre ident straightened up, and, under coyer of the black darkness, joined the crowd as they drew near the great old apple tree, where his beloyed Plymouth Rocks were wont to repose. The tree was nearly reached, when the President, to whom the sport of raiding chicken roosts was either a new or a forgotten one, was horritied to feel a growing and uncontrollable desire to sneeze. " This plagued night air, " he thought, trving neryously all the tricks he had eyer heard of to keep one from sneezing. But all were useless. " Ka-chooh! " It was oyer at last, and he held his breath, expecting his com- panions to recognize him and part company with him at once. But instead, they all turned suddenly toward the house and stood stock still, scarcely breathing, for minutes, it seemed to the President. Then, as all the house was still as before, " See here, fellows, " said the ring-leader, drawing a deep breath and speaking in a stage whisper, ' ' a little more o ' that ' 11 wake the old man. Whoeyer that sissy is that can ' t stand a little night air had better go to his mamma, but the rest of us don ' t want to go to ours, remember. Here we are now. Giye me a boost, some o ' you, and I ' 11 go up first. Here, Freeny, you come up, too, and we ' 11 pass the fruit of this tree down to the others. Too many of us up here m.ight rouse the natives. " 48 Up the tree went Seniors Taylor and Freeny, hitherto supposed by the Presi- dent to be the quietest of young men. The rest of the party, all of whom he had recognized by this time, stood waiting expectantly. A hoarse squawk was cut short, and a dark something handed down: then another, with the commeni : " Here ' sold ' Eph. ' " " And here ' s Molly, " came after the giggles with which old " Eph " was received. " And here ' s Betty. " The President gasped. " Molly " was his wife ' s name and " Betty " his daugh- ter ' s. He had suspected that these boys sometimes spoke of him as " Eph, " but ' ' Molly " and " Betty ! " . ' Say, this is enough, " Taylor was saying. " If the puller-bones won ' t go round, the drumsticks will. " Seniors Taylor and Freeny descended. Again there was the uneven tread of several pairs of feet, and the President, re-ensconced behind the grape arbor, again heard his back gate close softly. It was a custom of the President ' s to have occasionally a few of the students, especially of the upper classmen, to dine with him. When, on the day after the disappearance of his chickens, therefore, several of the students received invitations to dinner at the President ' s home, though they felt a little guilty, they saw no special significance in it, and did not hesitate to accept. " I guess old Prexy either hasn ' t missed his Plymouth Rocks or he doesn ' t know the sad particulars of their fate, " said Taylor to Freeny. " No, of course he doesn ' t know who lifted ' them, " said Freeny, " but I ' 11 bet he ' s missed ' em all right, for they say he sees different expressions on all their faces. " " I hope he won ' t tell us about it, for the very word ' chicken ' brings a bad taste to my mouth — that old patriarch you called ' Eph ' must have lodged with Noah during the shower. And if we have chicken for dinner, I ' m going to do something desperate. Ah, mv boy, I fear I ' 11 always be a cynic on the subject of fowls in general. " It did seem a little strange to the guests when they had all arrived, that the President had invited all who had been on the raid the night before and no others. The genial smiles and pleasant talk of their host and hostess, however, soon dis- pelled all their suspicions, and when dinner was announced and they went into the dining-room, they had completely forgotten the episode of the night before- When all were seated, the President returned thanks in his usual impressive manner. Then, calmly turning his attention to a huge dish of chicken before him, he asked, seriously and courteously: " Mr. Taylor, may I give you a piece of old ' Eph, ' or would you prefer a part oi ' Molly ' or ' Betty ' ?

Did vou ever sit dreaming of days long gone by, Aniile vou sat in vour room in the fire ' s dim glow? Wl , to-night I sit thus, and the embers all die As I wander back there in the days long ago. A tinv blaze flickers and then it dies down. Yet the embers all glow like the stars ' feeble light, When the sun, having made his long journey around, Has wrapped all the world in the darkness of night. I sit here in silence and watch the bright embers ; ' T is in them I see a cool shady glen. I wonder if now she this dear spot remembers, And the long happv davs that we spent in there then. The brooklet down there used to run, O so clear. O ' er that moss-covered root of the big willow tree, And the ferns seemed to nod when my sweetheart was neai As we picked the wild rose on the edge of the lea. It seems I can see now that fern-covered brink. With those dear little prints of her feet in the sand. And her dear little form as she kneels dowm to drink. While I tenderly hold to her little white hand. One day she told me that my sweetheart she ' d be. A nd we vowed with our hands on our hearts not to tell; And I kissed her right there in the shade of that tree. Where no one could see, for ' t was dark in the dell. Could I ever forget those dear clays of my childhood, The purest, the sweetest, the brightest of life. Or mv dear little sweetheart who played in the wildwood, Who now sits so near me? We kiss ; she ' s my wife. —C.A.A. 56 PI a Z o b 57 ss State Capitoi,. 59 GALLOWAY LITERARY SOCIETY. A. P. Hand. J. E, Carruth, S. M. Graham, E. B. Allen, OFFICERS. First Term President.

A. was organized soon after the founding of the College, and has a well and neatly furnished hall on the first floor of the main building. The mem- bership of the Y. M. C. A. is 137. It has now become a great factor in IMillsaps Col- lege, and does a work that no other organization can do. A majority of the stu- dents of the College belong to it, most of whom take actiye part in the work of the Association. The Association has systematic work outlined, which it undertakes to accomplish each year. The meetings are held on Friday and Sunday nights. The seryices are usually conducted by some one of the students. This year Dr. Murrah has preached on Sunday nights. For seyeral years after the organization the Association sent two members each year to the Southern Students ' Conference at Ashyille, North Carolina, but it now sends its men to the vSouth western Conference, which is held at Ruston, Louisiana, during the Christmas holidays. This year the Association sent nine men. These men are E. D. Lewis, S. U. Zung, J. L. Neill, J. A. McKee, E. C. McGilyray, O. Backstrom, C. H. Kirkland, C. L. Neill, and C. R. Nolen. This Conference greatly aids the men who attend in their work in the Association, as they there get the yery best training in the Bible study work. Each year the Association has a hand-book published, and has a committee meet the trains at the opening of school and distribute these books, which give new students information concerning the College. On Friday night after the opening of the school the Association holds a reception for the old and new stu- dents, and they there get acquainted with each other. The Bible Study Department is an important feature of the Association. Ninety-two men were enrolled in different classes this year. This work was greatly benefited this year by a Bible institute, held the first of the session by Mr. V. D. Weatherford, trayelling secretary for the College Association of the Southern States, and Mr. B. S. Huggins, tri-State vSecretary. The Missionary Department enrolled ninety men in mission study this year. The classes first took up for study " Effective Workers in Needy Fields. " The other two books studied were " Japan and Its Regeneration, " and " Princely Men in the Heavenly Kingdom. " ' Sir. W. B. Pettus, of Columbia University, delivered an address to the student-body in January, which greatly aided the cause of mis- sions in the College. A number of the men are enlisted in systematic giving to the cause of missions and the proceeds given to the support of a native student in the Anglo-Chinese College. 66 Our revival services this year were conducted by Rev. Mr. Dobbs, of Birming- ham, Alabama, and lasted from March 24th to March 31st. The newly-elected officers of the Association are: President, C. Lamar Neill, Montrose, Mississippi. Vice-President, J.

The first niovement toward awakening interest in athletics at Millsaps College was made during the session 1894-95. An organization i known as the Millsaps Athletic Association) was perfected among the student-bodv, with W. L. Weber, Professor of English, as its President. The Association immediately proceeded to procure fimds with which to build a college gymnasium, with the result that during the following year a fully equipped " gym " was completed and placed in charge of Mr. J. T. Lewis as special director. A perfect wave of athletic enthusiasm followed these improyements. At the beginning of the session of ' 96 the Association elected a new President, J. P. Hanner, Professor of Modern Languages, who at once set on foot plans for a Field Day to take place in the following April. The students supported him heart- ily in this undertaking, and trained faithfully during the winter for the sports, which consisted mainly of races, putting the shot, jumping, yaulting, an exhibition in the gymnasium, and a game of base ball, liberal prizes being given to the winners of the different contests. There being no regular college athletic field, the large field just south of the campus was used. A large audience of both town and col- lege people witnessed the sports, which were so successfully carried out that the visitors as well as the students looked forward with eagerness to the next Field Day. About this time G. C. Swearingen, Professor of Ancient Languages, organized the Millsaps Tennis Association as an auxiliary to the main Association. Two ex- cellent tennis courts were made, and during the following year the students had the pleasure of seeing the Association defeat a Jackson team in doubles. Professor Hanner was succeeded bv B. E. Young, both as Professor of Modern Languages and as President of the Athletic Association. Professor Young directed the atten- tion of the AssEociation to foot ball, and a foot ball team was organized, which plaved a few games with an eleven from Jackson. Activity in base ball circles took the form of a series of interesting games with the Deaf and Dumb Institute in which Millsaps proved the victor. The Athletic Association now took steps toward arranging for inter-collegiate games of foot ball; a coach was engaged, a " varsity " and a " scrub " team organ- ized, and everything looked promising for a successful season. The first game was with Tulane, at New Orleans, and was lost bv a score of 30 to o. On the following day, with a bruised and battered team, Millsaps lined up against the Louisiana State LTniversity, at Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and were unable to prevent them from rolling up a score of 70 to o. Those who made the trip were: Professor Young, President of the Athletic Association; Sively, manager; Abbey, Coach; 89 Fielder A. Fridge, H. Fridge, Hughes, Howell, McCleod, Hall, vShields, Smith, Simpson, Thompson, and Wood. The temperature of foot ball enthusiasm dropped a few degrees, but a victory of 30 to o over the team from Greenville, Mississippi, served to restore the spirits of the students to their normal condition and inspire them to renewed efforts to win the Thanksgiving game with L. .S. U. The day at last arrived. The mo- mentous hour came, and the two teams lined up against each other on the field while a multitude looked on with eager eyes. Millsaps made the first touch-down and successfully kicked the goal; L. S. U. made a touch-down, but failed to kick the goal. From that time on the ball swaved back and forth — now in the posses- sion of one side and now held by the other; but neither team could again score. Thus ended the greatest game ever played bv Millsaps, the score being 6 to 5. The spectators were almost wild with delight, and the college boys were imcontrollable. Foot ball was the subject of conversation for manv weeks — what had been done and what would be done. But athletics at Millsaps were overstepping the proper bounds in the estima- tion of the two Conferences, and at their next sessions resolutions were passed for bidding the College to indulge in inter-collegiate games of any kind. This move for a time practically paralyzed all athletic spirit. The new President of the Asso- ciation, Mr. D. L. Bingham, used every effort to revive interest among the students, but the shock had been too great, and his efforts were of no avail. The following session is known as the dull and lifeless era in our athletic historv. Professor Walmslev, of the Department of Historv, succeeded, in 1903, in reorganizing the Association, and during the past two sessions the situation has been greatly re- lieved by his earnest endeavors and helpful management. The present session has seen interest in athletics greatlv on the increase. Dur- ing the early fall the ball team played a series of games with the Jackson team, and on Thanksgiving Day we defeated them in foot ball bv the score of 10 to o, the features of the dav being two forty-yard runs bv McGilvray. This game not onh aroused new enthusiasm among the students, but filled an aching void in the treas- ury of the Association. The gymnasium classes, which were begun under the direction of Athletic Director F " . P. Spencer, have been continued under the leadership of Professor A. A. Kern, and have been largely attended. Attempts have been made to play basket ball in a regular manner, and two teams have been formed, the Lacoomas and the Tuscoos, with the hope that the organization will prove a permanent one. The tennis courts have not been sufhcient to the demand upon them. A healthy rivalry has existed between the various local ball teams, and all omens point to a brighter dav in Millsaps athletics. —W.
