M. L. SMITH Tresi enl ' s MESSAGE Teachers, equipment, space, beauty, atmosphere, tradition, location, students, recognition, ideals, and a destiny, well-defined and worthy, are the basic essentials of a great college. Teachers, well-chosen, wise and understanding; physical equipment, well-placed and expertly manipulated; space, open, abundant, soul-expanding and exliilarating; beauty, of hill and valley, of trees and clear sky; atmosphere, inspiring and -.reative; tradition, glorious, scholarly and enduring; location, easily accessible, central, culturally advantageous; students, highly selected, limited in number and strong; recognition, official, personal, universal and deserving; ideals, of moral, spiritual and mental expansion; destiny, conscious and idealistic. These, I say, are the essential characteristics of a great college. Once upon a time a man had a dreain of an institution wliich would embody these essentials where the youth of Mississippi could glean an insight into that by which men scale the heiglits — education. This man was Major Millsaps, and his dream has come true. Millsaps College stands today as a symbol of culture fully recognized by every accrediting agency and educational association in the United States, and presents a program of learning unhampered by political trends, or other factors wliich tend to limit the freedom of man ' s thought and to hinder his pursuit of truth. Millsaps College offers to the highest type of Mississippi boys and girls the facilities of an institution deep-rooted in the traditions of scholarship. Conscious as it is of constructive work in the past, Millsaps realizes that an even greater goal and an even higher trust lie ahead. Millsaps College is now a great center of learning — in the future it will be even greater. — M. L. SMITH, President. 11 DEAN W. E. RIECKEN ( v (!! (rM r (T v yrs (T cT ' vv Recognized as one of the best biology- teachers in the South, Dr. Riecken has long been liked and admired by students enrolled in his classes. So his appointment as dean was greeted by pride mingled with anxiety as they realized that this might take time from his labs and lectures. However, " Dr. Bill, " as he is affectionately called by his close friends, has proved that he is quite capable of managing both positions with ability--successful because of his real under- standing of students and campus life.

BOARD SEB, formal go-between for students and faculty, ' tho ' always campaigning for something, seldom achieves its goal. Its members, ever enthusiastic, are not always so harmonious. At a meeting one hears Manning vociferously pleading for a statement of the motion. Gee Gee il keep the minutes) Swayze, after the discussion is ALL over saying confusedly " What was that, now? " and Jimmy Cavett, probably the board ' s clearest thinker, doing his best to help her out. Conspicuous personali- ties who assist in obscuring the issue are Teeny Field, the conscientious objector; J. S. Vandiver, the eternal politician; and Jimmy Wall with his conflicting band and ' Shela loyalties. Notable also are Tom Robertson, the quiet humorist, and the Moore-Ogden team campaigning for women ' s rights. Seriously, though, they think very hard, come up with some wonderful ideas to which the faculty usually says " NO " ! Nothing daunted, however, they continue to suggest. Their project for the year. Dr. D. M. Key ' s portrait to hang with those of other Millsaps presidents, was successfully completed.

Associate Staff— those who by virtue of hard work or brilliant journalism get their names on the Masthead. €L PURP " Confidentially, now, " says Tom, " the real power on this campus lies, not in the faculty or with the student officers, but in the con- trol of student opinion held by Millsaps ' ef- ficacious fourth estate. " Comprising the editorial part of this estate are such penmen as Clayton Morgan, Law- rence Rabb. Mary Askew, " Lad " Waring, sports-hound Joe Brooks, and that furtive, insectile figure--the much-curst and late- lamented Dirt Dauber--all under the direc- tion and censorship of Editor-in-Chief, Tom Robertson. Heart, body and soul to its editor (and almost that to its staff) , the " P. and W. " expresses impartially the views of all who dare to publicize them--provides opportunity for student radicals and reactionaries to in- flame the campus in behalf of their causes. Responsibility for student elections, polls, and contests, is eagerly assumed by the journalists and the results delayed for days to provide " scoops. " The business end of publication is handled by Johnny Burwell and a staff including such commercialists as Raymond Martin, Sidney Graves, and Harris Carter. To them belongs the credit for securing the ads. keep- ing up the mailing list, and distributing the paper in the halls each Thursday morning. EDITORIAL ASSISTANTS These able reporters spend most of their time running down the campus big- shots for news on the organizations which said big-shots head. Having obtained the desired information, they rush frantically to a typewriter the last ten minutes be- fore deadline to write up their stories. They emerge with nerves slightly on edge — but triumphant at having turned in their assignments. 20 LE an3 WHITE EDITORIAL STAFF TOM ROBERTSON - LAWRENCE WARING CLAYTON MORGAN ■ CHARLTON ROBY - - MARY ASKEW ■ ■ - Editorial Asst. - - Asst.

White, and Childress distinguished themselves by becoming invaluable to the editor, thereby letting themselves in for a lot more hard work. And in recognition of this work the title " Associate Staff " was created and given to them. Contrary to the usual expectations in such cases, they lived up to their title, and the ' Shela greatly appreciates their contributions. €lie BOB The function of the Bobashela differs from that of the " P. W. " in that its province is history rather than the dissemination of news, and its scope includes an entire year, rather than a few days. Like the " P. W. " , however, it provides an opportunity for budding journalists to air their views, and remains as a permanent record of their efforts, as well as of college activities. Organized almost as soon as school started, the an- nual staff met regularly to report what it had done; to exult in their new staff room; and to deplore the lack of privacy which allowed the indispensable Mr. Murphy, acting on orders from Dr. Smith, to invade tiieir sanctum at any time for the purpose of removing property that struck their fancy to " parts unknown " elsewhere on the campus. This he did by means of the window (which he alone could unbar) and it was not at all unusual for Editor Moorer to walk in of a morning, bent on serious work, only to find the place ransacked, and everything in a turmoil. In spite of the frequent confusion, however, the staff did ac- complish ? Special credit is due. this year, in addition to the associate staff, to journalists O ' Brien and Rundle. and to Assistant Editor, Ess White, general handy man and moral support of the editor. Following the effective example of Manager Wall, the business staff soon became adept at hounding the student body to buy books and pounding the pavement for adds. Rice Wilson. Jim Thompson, Eva DeCell, and chief propagandist Roy Clark were es- pecially active in arousing the student body to the proper pitch to support the " worthy cause.

Always pressed for time, they still manage to get everything done, possibly because 73% of them have the B-average required for Dean ' s list and can cut a class " occasionally. " JIMMY BOOTH J. S.

It ' s a glorious occasion--the stirring music of the band, the gay floats, cheerleaders almost hoarse, and a carefree student body all participating. Even sleepy-head Martin was there. Just to start the day off right. Dean ' s List Hamilton, entitled by his B-average to cut classes when he chooses, chooses to cut and amble around the campus with Betty Larsen, while — Comes 12:30 and the cafeteria stampede, resulting in just this. Anders, Worthington, Green and Tynes stow away vitamins for football. Must admit Anders is g-etting the best of it. These students, either less fortunate, or more ambitious, end up in Ross Moore ' s History 61 class. Left to right you see Nash Broyles, Glenn Phifer, Cappy Ricks, Charlotte Nichols, and David Donald. The vacancies in the rear are because — After dinner 2 o ' clock labs take their quota. This particular photo was made in the physics department, which like all Mill- saps sciences, has a well-equipped lab for the ever-increasing " B. S. " ratio. You can identify Teeny Fields. Virginia Shelton, and Tommy Ha thorn. It would appear that people such as Albert Martin can ' t even make a 10:20 class, much less a 9:25. During lab. while Edwin Farmer and Helen Ruuft successfully slip out and dash to the Grill for a Coke--- Millsaps, small liberal arts college located on the hills of Jackson ' s historic State Street, offers opportunity for fun along with the brand of education which entitles her to be on the approved list of the Association of American Universities. Many of the 650 students are Jackson residents, but there are also represen- tatives of the Delta, the Coast, and surrounding states. There are even a few popular Yankees among- the " eds " and co-eds who daily drink Cokes at the Grill. After the game the more socially minded rush madly to College Capers (just opposite the campus) for " re- laxin " before settling ' down to serious study. While Ed Fleming and Mary Carraway dance to the nickelodeon, Ed Noble, Mary Alyce Moore. Maxine Young, and Edwin Farmer all give respectful attention to " professor " Brady. T-iOuis Crouch is not so successful. He runs into Dr. Riecken and the little matter of demerits comes up-. After lab no rest for the weary. Here they g " o through their routine band practice, with Armand Coullet, plus French accent, directing. Their reward comes later in the year when they go on concerts and play in chapel. Back at the dorms, studes are all set to study. — Could do it very well, too, if it weren ' t for the inevitable " bull session " which goes on and on into the wee small hours. What do they talk about? — Why everything on earth, and the heavens above and waters under — and probably you, too, if you ' re a girl. Later in the year also, basketball season draws crowds from town, as well as from the campus, to the Millsaps Gym, where such stars as Charlie Ward demonstrate how the game should be played. Because of such outstanding men as Charlie, Millsaps scored top honors this year in winning the Dixie Conference champion- ship. And ju L . 11 ' .. ' U wun ' t get the idea that students never have a serious thought, we add this picture of Pike master minds. Ess White and Roy Clark, out to break their own and everybody ' s else records. It may not be so typical — but some students do study. SNAPS O. D. K. taps Mr. and Mrs. Gift of gab Mama love papa? ■ ' ' The time has come.

An outstanding athlete, Bledsoe has steadily won friends throughout his four years at Millsaps by his sportsmanlike conduct and genial smile. Equally outstanding as a cheerleader and band sponsor, Sara has kept pace with Bledsoe, and brought wide credit to her Alma Mater as well as to herself. The Millsaps student body is proud to present these two as representative students. 35 Broyles, Burkhead, Bain Zke SENIOR CLASS PRESIDENT Jack Eain, president of the Senior Class, business manager of tlie Glee Club, treasurer of the Christian Council, vice-president of ODK, and men ' s Pan-Hellenic, is Lamba Chi Alpha ' s gift to the coeds, said coeds agreeing that Jack sports the campus ' s softest shoulder on Avhich to cry either before or after exams. Jack says the Glee Club is his favorite activity and Math and chemistry his favorite subjects. He ' s going to be a chemist. OFFICERS Vice-president of the Senior Class, Nash Broyles is also Rickett ' s history assistant, and PiKA ' s strong silent man. He ' s the unpredictable type. There ' s always a chance that he ' ll turn up at the most formal formal with a black eye or a cauliflower ear (he boxes, or did you know?). Fellow members of IRC boost him because he has intelligent opinions on current affairs; everybody else Ijoosts him because he ' s such an all- ' round swell fellow. Vera Burkhead, secretary-treasurer of the Senior Class and Millsaps ' champion booster, says Millsaps has the friendliest students in the whole USA and a Grill where she, for one, has the time of her life. Her favorite sport is swimming, but she plays a last game of tennis, too. She hopes to teach high school history. 36 Zke SENIOR CLASS MARY KATHRYN ASKEW - - - Sardis Beta Sigma Omicron Grenada College 1: Whitworth 2; Y. W. C. A. 3, 4; Y. W. C. A.

It ' s near Pelahatchie, and those who know Charlie know why that ' s important. An all- ' round athlete, he specializes in basketball. He ' ll probably be a coach. Maxine Young, secretary-treasurer of the Junior Class, vice-president of KD pledges, and cheerleader, is a transfer from Wesson who made good here overnight. She likes social science a lot, but English, her major, more. (Mrs. Stone please note.) As to the future, Maxme says " Id like to be a housewife, but will probably be an old maid school teacher!

After lunch you ' ll find him witli all other football boys stationed on the front porch at Founders ' to watch the parade of coeds. He plays both basket- ball and football and will prob- ably be a coach. However, his majors are physics and astron- omy. Graves, Mansfield, Branch Qg Sophomore Class OFFICERS Sidney Graves, vice-president of the Sophomore Class, circulation manager of the Purple and White, says Millsaps cafe(teria) society intrigues him. " — the way some people flirt — . Sidney is a pre-med student, and his favorite course is Riecken ' s biology. Martha Mansfield, secretarv-treasurer of the Sophomore Class, vice-president of KD, says " I love every single thing about Millsaps, but best of all the students. " — Which statement her fellow-debunkers-of-History-51 may term " propaganda designed to cloud the issue of one special — single — student!

The " M " Club has been especially active this year and has had a large increase in members because of the number of junior college transfers who played football this season. The clubroom located in the basement of the gymnasium in one of the favorite hangouts of Millsaps athletes for bull sessions, studying, or " snoozing. " 73 B. O. VAN HOOK Athletic Director B. O. Van Hook has been serving as athletic director, coach of the basketball team, and coach of the track team for many seas- ons now and is one of the most popular members of the faculty. He has had especial success this year with his basketball team, which led the Dixie Con- ference during the season. THE COACHING STAFF FOOTBALL Henry Louis " Hook " Stone has just finished his first year as head football coach at Millsaps, coming here with a notable record for turning out championship grid teams at Copiah-Lincoln Junior College. Stone enjoyed a winning season in 1939 and has laid most of the groundwork for Millsaps ' championship teams of the future. Hook ' s football assistant this year was Bernie Ward, whose assistance has been very valuable. Freshman Coach Melvin Richardson has continued his fine work of past seasons, leading the yearling gridders through their best season in years and coaching a winning first-year basketball team. THE CHEERLEADERS No collegiate athletic contest is complete without cheerleaders, and Millsaps has been fortunate in hav- ing an excellent squad. Under the leadership of Head Cheerleader Pemble " Teeny " Field, they have given much of their time and energy to keeping Millsaps ' school spirit at a high pitch at games and pep meetings. Field. Young. Brady. Dickerson, Riser, Castle 5 a I MILLSAPS THE MANAGERS AND THE FOOTBALL, SQUAD Under the guidance of its new coach, Henry Louis " Hook " Stone, the varsity football team went tnrough its first winning season in several years, winning four games, losing three and tying two. Millsaps got off to a flying start in Coach Stone ' s debut game by defeating Delta State 14--0 at the fair grounds. Charlie Ward and Milan Richardson led the way. In their next start the Majors journeyed to Birmingham and upset the Dixie Conference cham- pion Howard team 7--6. This was Millsaps ' best played game of the season and was featured by the work of Ward, Granville Hamby, AVillie Carter, and Phillip Shipp. On Saturday of the state fair week the Purple and White battled to a scoreless tie with the pow- erful State Teachers College Yellowjackets. Union L niversity handed the Methodists their first defeat of the season by trouncing them 12--0 at Jackson, Tennessee. The Birmingham-Southern Panthers rallied to tie Millsaps 7--7 at the fair grounds after Phil Shipp had sent the Majors ahead with a fifty yard punt return. Interest in Jackson soared to a new high over the traditional Millsaps-Mississippi Colleere clash, but the Choctaws surprised Major fans with an astonishing 29--0 whitewashing. The Purple Platoon defeated Spring Hill 6--0 be- fore a large Homecoming Day crowd on a brilliant punt return and forward pass by Sophomore Half- back Ed Matulich. Mississippi State trounced the scrappy Majors 40--0, and then the varsity wound up its season with a 2--0 victory over the West Tennessee Teachers at Memphis. The entire Major team showed excellent ability and fine spirit throughout the tough nine-game season. Granville " Pap " Hamby, a transfer from Copiah- Lincoln Junior College, won honors for himself and the team by winning a guard position on the All Dixie Conference team. Boutwell, Pearson, Hathorn LETTE GRANVILLE " Pap " HAMBT Right Guard Granville " Pap " Hamby was easily the outstand- ing football player on the team. An all-state junior college star at Wesson, Hamby was selected on the All-Dixie Conference team in his first year at Mill- saps. He is expected to repeat again next year. WILLY CARTER, End Willy Carter developed into one of the best defensive ends in Millsaps ' history and turned in some brilliant exhibitions of wing- play last season. TERRY WALTERS, End Playing his last year of foot- Ixill, Terry Walters was one of the Majors ' strongest assets with his fine playing and team spirit. BRANDON BELL, Back Quarterback Brandon Bell was the best blocker on the squad last year as a sophomore and is expected t o be one of the team ' s star performers for the next two seasons. H. I.

PHILLIP SHIPP, Back Halfback Phil Shipp turned in the best ball carrying perform- ance for the Majors and led all the backs in this department. HENRY STEINRIEDE, Back Henry Steinriede showed great promise as a sophomore full- back in the ' 39 season and is expected to develop into a swell line-plunger for the next two seasons. FORD " Scoop " CANTERBURY End Although only a sophomore. Scoop was the best pass re- ceiver on the club this year and will probably win lots of fame before he is through with foot- ball at Millsaps.

The strong Minors won three games and lost only one. After losing their opener 9-0 to the Ellisville Junior College gridders, the frosh defeated Perkinston Junior College 12-0 in a home game. Ed Gillum, brilliant Millsaps halfback, led the locals to a 7-0 victory over the powerful Louisiana Tech first-year eleven, and the Minors swamped their Mississippi College rivals 40-0 to close their season. Ed Gillum starred in the yearling backfield, while Burnell Smith, Jay Smith, Tex Cleckler, and the entire line made a name for them- selves by their great play. BASKET Dear. Branch. Tynes. Miles. Jones. Richardson. Hammack. Carter. Green. Ward. Adcock. Williams. The basketball team enjoyed its best season in years during 1940. breezing through a difficult schedule in fine fashion and being crowned Dixie Conference champions by winning the Dixie tournament held in Jackson. The fine showing of the hoopsters this season was largely due to the excellent coach- ing of B. O. Van Hook, who started from scratch at the opening of the season but whip- ped together a championship team in short order, Millsaps made a runaway of the conference tourney by trouncing Mercer, Chatta- nooga, Howard, and their rivals, Mississippi College, in the final game. The Majors split a four game series with the Choctaws and wound up their regular schedule with 12 wins and 10 losses. Sophomore Cliff Jones and veteran Charlie Ward, both All-Dixie selections, topped Millsaps ' scorers with their eagle-eyed shooting. Willy Branch and Oscar Tynes also showed scoring ability, and Wiley " Army " Williams. Willy Carter, and Milan Richardson turned in brilliant defensive work. 80 BALL CLIFF JONES CHARLIE WARD WILEY WILLIAMS WILLY BRANCH WILLY CARTER OSCAR TYNES MILAN RICHARDSON CHARLES HAMMACK .— 1st Row: Shell.

BASEBALL at M 1 L L S A P S A large squad answered Coach Bernie Ward ' s call for baseball candidates and has been working hard to get into shape for another two months of strenuous diamond activity. On paper the club seems to shape up about as strong as it did last year, with only three men lost by graduation, although their departure weakens the hitting stre ngth somewhat. Lettermen returning for service are catcher Virgil Anders, infielders Milan Richardson, Ed Matulich, and Ed Fleming; Wallis Litton, William Green, Herb Selman, Les Cooper, and Charley Ward. Rounding out the team are Blondy Samuels. Bull Hart, and Woodrow Fox. 82 Zk e COACH RICHARDSON Only a few years ago Coach Melvin Richardson was breaking track records at Millsaps as an undergraduate. Just to prove that he is still in shape, he clears a hurdle in perfect (?) form. TRACKSTERS As we go to press the track team has not yet begun the most extensive schedule it has faced in several seasons. Track meets have been slated against such opponents as Mississippi College, Southwestern, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and the other Dixie Con- ference members. Prospects are not as bright as they were for the 1939 club. Such outstanding stars as Blondy Rush, Bert Melton. Gerald Carmichael, Wirt Beard, Shotgun Herron, and Gene Price are missing. However, the cinder artists have some fine competitors on hand this season in low hurdler Joe Miles, high hurdler Ford " Scoop " Canterbury, jumper Gordon Worthington. pole vaulter Jay Smith, weight thrower H. I. Ellzey, and javelin thrower J. B. Upton, and are expected to garner lots of points in each meet. 1st Row: Jackson, Triplett. Christmas, Boutwell, Gross, Bynum, Stubblefield, Steinriede.

Playing in the number one position again was Earl Epperson, the star freshman of the 1939 team, who had the best individual record last year. Ira Thorn, another sophomore, was the only veteran to return. The best of the newcomers are little Johnny Miller and lanky W. E. Simmons, who have been playing excellent tennis and who show a great deal of promise. De Loach Cope and Pee Wee Armstrong round out the team, which is coached by Dr. M. C. White. Epperson.

WOMEN ' S ATHLETICS The Women ' s Athletic Association outlines and carries out an extensive program of athletics for girls, including physical education classes and intra- mural competition between the sororities. Among the wide range of sports offered on t he program are basketball, volleyball, tennis, softball, table tennis, badminton, archery, and golf. 85 3aoi oi ■ . -S • {vtvo d s ' _ at ve ,ao - do L »Ve )es .!

GEORGE PETTY Seiecls ike Jjeauli es In order to get a real artist ' s opinion of tlie beauties wlio rule Millsaps ' campus, pictures of twenty girls, se- lected as " choice " by Student Execu- tive Board, were sent this year to George Brown Petty for judging. Artist Petty, well-known for his sketches of lovely girls, obligingly ac- cepted the task, and we give you here his selection. As " Queen, " Sara Rhymes; as the next five, Bert Watkins, Myrtle Ruth Howard, Una Caldwell, Louise Moorer, and Sara Stephens. •,0- L 6ti4 w. x - „6i 89 In addition to possessing the beauty which won her laurels as " Queen, " Sara ' s also versatile enough to fit in any group. She swims, cooks, types, bicycles, — but dislikes bridge. Band and football sponsor, she likes athletes, and is B. S. U. president. She doesn ' t like sweets, fellows, so send flowers, red preferred. 90 STS ' lT SS Quoting Bert, " My hobby, if you could call it that, is picnicking. " Her favorite sport was mastered also by Robin Hood and William Tell. In English class and Glee Club she shines. Believe it or not — she ' s one red-headed girl without a temper. 91 tSr jfefe 1 ATLi Her continual hiccoughs do not seem to bother good-natured Myrt, who adds gay notes to any gathering. She ' s artistically inclined, wild about dancing and having her picture made, but black cats give her cold chills. 92 ( ... l JL A JA. Boys, here ' s another good cook. Una likes teas, " The One Rose, " and good conversation; has a peculiar nickname — " Boy. " If she gets by Dr. Musgrave, she may teach psychology someday, too. 93 ■xo (yt t a C -t - t 7 Take it from us, our editor has, besides beauty, artistic talent and executive ability. She likes sports and has the cutest little dog! Louise hopes for a career (commercial art, maybe) and a place where she can raise millions of flowers. Pet hate? — the library!

W. beauty, she ' ll teach history " until ' he ' comes along. " Hobbies? — Chinese checkers, candid camering, and making gingerbread. 95 J iUs aDs p FAVORITES According to George Petty ' s own admis- sion, he had a hard time selecting six " Most Beautiful " girls out of the group of twenty pictures sent him. These fourteen others, equally as attrac- tive to those who know them, take their places as Millsaps ' favored favorites. You see them everywhere, adding charm to any group. BEVERLEY DICKERSON Xylophonists aren ' t nearly as bad as they sound — take Beverley, for instance. She ' s plenty good at cheer-leading-, too, and if you ever see her without her chewing gum — look again — it can ' t be Beverley! VIRGINIA SWAYZE Millsaps ' baby — Gee-Gee. in her senior year, is Just eighty-nine pounds of friendliness — four feet ten inches of school spirit. Dramatics, chapel-cut- ting, politics, and shades of green appeal to her. She has a secret love, too. 96 GLENN PHIFER DOLORES DYE Equally at home behind the footlights, in French Club, in the kitchen, in the water, or at the ball — Glenn is, however, deniureness, itself. She likes formal parties, enjoys classical music, won ' t walk under ladders, and edited last year ' s " Bobashela. " You ' ve seen Dolores in the spotlight before, as Millsaps ' favorite tap-dancer. She can draw, too — may be a designer. Her grades are about " tops, " (as President of Eta Sigma, they should be!) When it comes to sports, she ' ll take roller-skating. NANETTE KARRAKER Nanette was " Miss Tutwiler " before she got in our beauty section. She has three-day crushes; likes Tyrone Power, " Stardust, " scrapbooks, and Millsaps boys, ( " they ' re tops! " ); once fell all the way down Galloway ' s stairs. Call her " Blondie. " ANN STONE Ann easily disproves the axiom, " pretty, but dumb. " Among other things she enjoys good inusie, good books, long walks: and she ' s quite a French scholar. For your own safetj ' — don ' t pop your gum when she ' s within hearing distance. 97 GERALDINE SUMRALL MARTHA CONNER Gerry ' s a whiz at ping-pong and really not bad as a vocalist. If she chooses a career it will probably be music. Dramatics and journalism (she edited the " Freshman P. W. " ) also claim a share of hei time. A senior at nineteen, " Shorty " plans a career in a laboratory. An outdoor girl, she likes camping; spends her time cooking (she ' s good, boys), playing, swimming, and glee-clubbing. She enjoys informal parties and is keen about athletes. MAXINE YOUNG DORA FRANCES GREEN The Junior Class ' s Secretary smiles longingly at scrap-books, ambrosia, picnics, football heroes, and anything " blue; is good at tennis and, so she says, singing. She ' s a Millsaps cheer-leader and bites her finger-nails. Dee-Dee, another drum majorette, is a shai ' p history student, understands politics, and keeps up with world affairs. Dancing ' s her hobby, though; soft-ball and swimming — her sports. No career for her, she ' ll graduate in ' 43, travel a year, and marry — maybe. 98 MARY FAY REESE MILLICENT LAMPS This black-haii ' ed, brown-eyed, former M. S. C. W. Most Beautiful came to Millsaps because she ' d " always wanted to go to school in Jackson. " Her favorite sport is tennis; study — religion. Talents? — Well, principally just poise and friendliness. Glamorous and ambitious. INIillie is taking, of all things, Pre-med!. will proljably be a laboi ' atcjry technician. A strange mixture of talents leads her to music, zoology, aquatics, dancing, mathematics, and bath-tub-caroling. Red ' s her color. OLGA WRIGHT Domestic and talented, Olga is an expert seam- stress, a good cook, an accomplished equestrienne, and a drum-majorette. Speedy in an auto, she prefers " sweet " music, but jitterbugs " conserva- tively. " New friends, sororities, and fun brought her to Millsaps. MARTHA MclLWAIN This Delta lass has already set her eye (and heart) on one lucky Major, Hailing from where she does, Martha ' s naturally fond of dancing and horse-back riding. She also plays golf, and has never had enough strawberry shortcake. 99 -bvoa ' ,de WWBB frt - ■f-f U I ' . Brooks, Bain, Murry, Noble, Selman, Bledsoe, Clark, Walters, Vandiver, Phillips. MEN ' S PAN-HELLENIC Nobody has a very clear idea of just what these boys liave done in this partiouhir capacity. That ' s probal ly because there isn ' t a great deal for them to do; among Millsaps ' pet prides are her inter-fraternity relations. The groups all have a great deal of self-pride, and tell jokes on each other, but when it comes to getting along on the campus, they can do that too. The Men ' s Pan-Hellenic, composed of two representatives from each fra- ternity, is here anyway in case it should be needed ; it yearly goes over the rushing rules, which have become routine, meets once or twice, and that ' s that. 103 Alpha Mu Chapter of KAPPA ALPHA Founded ------------ Washington College, Dec. 21. 1865 Established at Millsaps ------------- Oct. 1, 1893 Colors ---------------- Crimson and Gold Flower ----------------- Crimson Rose Publication -------------- " Kappa Alpha Journal " The sons of the South don ' t let you forget that they are the oldest frat on the campus-- perhaps even existing part of the time sub rosa until the anti-fraternity law was repealed in 1894.

But whetlier you call them Thetas or Lambda Chis, you still admire Jaclv Bain for his dignity as president, persistence as a student, and versatility as ladies ' man; you still think Joe Brooks is a swell actor (even if he ain ' t no Robert ' Taylor!): you still wonder how the trustees took that Homecoming float; and are amazed that Floyd Gillis writes Deep poetry. Through the years Millsaps ' most consistent Belhave-men, the Theta-Lambda ' s this year are represented there by Lamar Beacham, Hudson, and aforementioned Bain.

Such shining lights as Jimmy Cavett, J. S. Vandiver, and Bo Murry preside over the hurried meetings where all motions are quickly passed, over Cappy ' s invariable, unyield- ing opposition, and adjournment called. Combined, but futile, efforts of members are exerted to hold down radical Rabb, who at each new issue becomes more excited. Sponsored by the YM, working with the YW, this year were such projects as the outstanding successful student body banquet, the servants ' Christmas party, and begin- nings of an " adequate social program for Millsaps.

CABINET This organization within the larger YW is made up of the officers and committee chairmen (program, publicity, service, social, campus-church relations) who meet at intervals to rejoice or deplore about current campus problems. Mrs. Stone and Miss Thomas act as an advisory board for projects which the cabinet thinks up and presents to the Association. Their " something-differents " include their valentine party for Methodist Orphanage children, class-program series, to determine the talent in the several classes, and discussion of men and women relations. It was also the YW which brought Mrs. Morgan to the campus for a week-end; Mrs. Morgan provoked more thought than any one speaker in some time. OFFICERS MARY E.

OMICRON DELTA KAPPA ' I ' About 1926 Omicron Delta Kappa decided that Millsaps was an institution worthy of representation within its ranks and located Pi circle here. Since then the coveted key has dangled from the watch-chains of the biggest of the Big Men On Campus. Members, whose leadership in scholarship, athletics, publications, forensics. and dramatics, is recog- nized and thus honored meet once a month to discuss school improvement, shoot the bull, and black-ball prospective members. Four faculty members. Drs. Smith, Riecken, Moore, and Wharton, are active in the circle, while numerous others wear the key. Dr. Moore served this year on the governing council of the national organization. Projects recently fostered by the group include the Millsaps Post Office, our new cafeteria, and the new walks on the campus. Tap Day and High School Day are annually entrusted to their care. Representing the culmination of honorary recognition, the golden key of O. D. K. is one of the few badges of college years which definitely marks a man in later life. OFFICERS J. S. VANDIVER.

It was founded in the spring of ' 38 by politically-minded KA ' s who claimed it to be an outgrowth of the older Pre-Law club from which it now draws its members. Presiding over the group is Dickie Lauderdale; its sponsor and only faculty member is the Honorable Professor Raymond R. Haynes, former Vice-consul to Scotland and England. Great achievement of the year was the finger-printing for Uncle Sam, of all students who could be coaxed, coerced, or cornered. The future barristers hold mock- trials, receive counsel from prominent attorneys of tlie state and promote interest in civic matters. DKD, the only pre-law honorary in the South (so they claim) has made plans for expansion to other schools. OFFICERS RICHARD LAUDERDALE ------..--... President KENNY HOLYFIELD ---------...

Since then it has also gone to orators and extemporaneous speakers. Vandiver and Clark are the prize team with numerous tournament honors to their credit.

Its purpose is to acquaint under-grads with situations which will face them in med-school and The Profession and to provide practical training for the future medicos.

KIT KAT The oldest and (say they) most exclusive honorary on the campus, Kit-Kat is and intends to remain a local fraternity whose memibers are recognized for their ability in creative writing. (Even your frat brothers can ' t get you in if you aren ' t accepted as a local genius!) The would-be authors meet monthly to dine sumptuously, hear and criticize (above all, criticize) original papers, listen to Dr. White ' s discussions of his thesis on Arthur Murray, and discuss trends and events of the literary world. Such literary greats as Ricks, Painter, Kolb, and Robertson go about patting each other on the back for their good fortune at being within the circle, whispering of the horrors of initiation, and bragging of the unique and outstanding camaraderie of their meetings. Recogni tion by Kit-Kat is, they assure themselves, the highest honor, the greatest privilege that can come to a student of literature.

The bi-weekly meetings are held sometimes at the Chi Omega house and sometimes in homes; they consist of a couple of papers on current topics of more or less interest to the group. Lancaster, Clark, and Vandiver make intelligent comments, the co-eds say " I don ' t think so, " at appropriate intervals, and Dr. Moore moves adjournment. Vice- President Ann Stone served this year as secretary of the state organization which met in Jackson on February 17 for a conference to settle the problems of the world.

ALPHA PSI OMEGA The elite of the Millsaps dramatic world, giants of the stage, form the membership of Alpha Psi Omega. These veteran Thespians advise and hold firmly in check the boisterous Millsaps Players. A worthy goal in itself, especially coveted by KD ' s as a matter of tradition, recognition by Alpha Psi Omega has also served as a stepping-stone to ODK and Sigma Lambda. Meetings this year have largely been given over to consideration of the deplorable fact that no one owns a pin and to the debating of several dark secrets concerning the identity of the officers. Each member of the group, from Whitsett on down, has identi- fied himself with some special work in the field of play production and has been respon- sible for that particular phase at each performance. And then there is always the problem of Helen Ricks, who is eternally, incessantly mugging.

Carefully mixing new with experienced actors, the Players can usually be depended on for a good evening ' s performance— a fact which people of Jackson are coming to appreciate more and more. Hard work in the Players is rewarded on Tap-Day by the blue and yellow ribbons of Alpha Psi Omega.

BEETHOVEN CLUB This organization of music students hopes soon to become a chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota, national music frat. If the Greek letters want a group that really knows its treble and bass, we rise to recommend them. But if they are looking for wild-eyed genius and temperament, we fear they will be disappointed here. So prudent are these musicians that they are governed by 8 officers, including 3 vice-presidents.

Always out in front is tireless, chocolate-eating Chief High Rambler Sullivan, discovering, explaining, and bringing to life again the world of some milleniums back. Sometimes petrified discoveries are lugged back to the campus and deposited for the enlightenment of posterity in the Millsaps museum, which was itself " discovered " this year by the petrified P W, campus weekly.

MINISTERIAL LEAGUE This group of ministers-to-be, presided over by dignified and earnest Felix Sutphin, meets weekly with outside speakers as the main programs. Each spring they fete and feast their dates at the Ministerial League banquet, always a high spot in the current calendar. The league has this year debated the " dances for Millsaps " problem, — along with the rest of the campus. It also worked throughout the year with the Conference Board of Christian Education, furnished Sunday School teachers for the Mississippi School for the Deaf, and took charge of church services in communities near Jackson when the opportunity presented itself.

Echoes of Alma Mater reverberate across the campus as another class leaves academic halls to enrichen a tradition of service already half a century in the making. September . . . and hearts beat faster as a new class is inspired by the Millsaps tradition which now is their own. Breathless Today blends with serene Yesterday to bring forth a brilliant Tomorrow. Drawing upon her heritage of service, Millsaps again prepares to carry on. Things such as these must always live on! To those who know Millsaps and what it stands for, a call goes out to keep their college in the vanguard of educational leadership and service in Mississippi and the South. Don ' t you know a student who should come to Millsaps? MILLSAPS COLLEGE M. L. SMITH, President JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI BOBASHELA CALENDAR SEPTEMBER School starts; U. Z. urges B. S. degrees and lab fees. Profs urge book buying; upper- classmen urge trosh to hurry and make up their minds. Cokes mount up! Silence days; sorority girls depend on little sisters and boy friends to hang onto rushees to protect from enemy little sisters and boy friends. Pledging; roses and carnations flood the campus and S:5 beaming pledges swim out. Boys start rushing seriously. Car acci- dentally rolls across campus into foundation of new Pike house. Pikes eye KA ' s but Roy convinces them Van ' s a good fello v. Wonder a bit and have foundation fixed. Boys rushing; girls take each other to the grill. (They had to buy books anyway, you know) Moore and Wharton are nice to them, but even so, tension is greatly relieved when Boys pledge; take girls to grill. Moore and Wharton go alone or with each other. W. is having teeth tilled, anyway. IRC meets, .5 girls, 4 boys present. Decide to have a picnic and elect new members. Decide to elect new members first, vote of 5 to 4. New cheerleaders announced, and Maxine, Beverly, and Eleanor are congratulated. Ditto the band and new sponsors Green, Wright and Lampe. YWCA cabinet wants to have banquet welcoming students. First date in popular Gee Gee ' s calendar is December 25. Decides everyone will be welcome by then and abandons idea. New teachers (Wharton, Ricketts, Mus- grave, Galloway, Mrs. Sanders, Wallace, West, Emigli ) and freshmen are being in- spected by seniors and approved or scorned accordingly. Dirt dauber falls from hands of KA chapter to — well, falls. Moon is full and Millsaps wins first foot- ball game, beating Howard 14-0, to close a very successful month, in the whole. OCTOBER Millsaps has a dean at last! Dr. Riecken is announced as the fellow by the board of trustees, to the great satisfaction of all con- cerned — and the special gratification of the Science majors, who told us all along that he was a great guy. Politics get underway in class elections with results as pictured in the front of the book. 24 prospective teachers kiss their after- noons goodbye and wend their way to Jack- son schools to see how its done and flirt with that cute little trick on the front row.

Need for social program discovered by some bright soul. Students adjoui-n d aily to see the 11 o ' clock parades during Pair week. Profs with classes from 10:20 to 12:10 decide that next year at this time they ' ll hold them on Capitol street. Oh yes. the Pair! You probably remember that without our help. Mrs. Morgan comes and dishes out com- mon sense in large doses to large groups, inspiring countless bull-sessions on every- thing from marriage to politics. Campus unanimous in praise. NOVEMBER Pikes dedicate their pride and joy and invite the campus in to inspect. Campus much impressed, especially by wall-paper in hall. To dance or not to dance hotly debated, with P W radicals losing whatever standing they had with the Ministerial League. Side issue: where do jitterbugs Oliver and Wroten stand? Or are they sitting down ' ? Preshman talent starts rehearsing one- act plays for debut on Millsaps boards, coached by upper-classmen and Dr. White, in his spare moments. Dance question slips out of sight for duration of Nov. 11. Parade, open house; S pg. P W, half about Homecoming, half about Armistice day propaganda. Rabb: " It is my contention that this homecoming is not a parallel to those of 1915, 16, 17, 18, but a day on which America is doing what it thinks is right and a day on which America shall continue to do what is right other than going to war. " Robertson: " The ills of Europe, if America must cure them, cannot be cured by the sword — it has been tried for two thousand years. America can best serve her purpose by striving not to take sides in the present war. " Dirtdauber pre- dicts merger by Belhaven and Millsaps. P W also — weeks later — decides to name new dorm. Result, Grenworth, which nobody could remember to say . Radio program over WSLI really getting underway, with and without orchestra. Live- say does nobly as Winchell, minus dirt, and Lib Campbell vocalizes. Confusion over Thanksgiving settled by taking cuts and celebrating both. S. p.

Got more than warm, got hot, especially the girls, who didn ' t like each other so good. Coeds look the boys over, flirt mildly, but no broken hearts when they go. E. O. Harbin beams at the campus, talks about social program, suggests skating rink in Coach Van ' s prized gym. Rabb is all for it. Sigma Lambda dresses up the profs and they put on a return performance of the Destreect School. Cute kids: Peck ' s Bad Boy Moore; Sling-shot Sullivan; Tricycle Mitchell; and that coy little Jenny Thomas; Sissy Wharton; — and on into the night. Huge success. Home for Christmas, no rest for the weary; everybody else is home too. Large time had by all, and we come back to school properly exhausted for: JANUARY Exams, remember? Or would you rather remember The Snow, which started falling at 2 o ' clock on Monday, first day of exam week! There were frozen pipes for the old (rat houses, so the boys shaved over at the Pikes ' . There were boots for all and sundry, and jodphurs for the shaplier coeds. Snow- balls in profusion, ditto exam cuts, ditto fun. Joe Brooks gets a glorified picture on top of his P W column and editor Robertson is loudly censured (or allowing it. We love him like he is. FEBRUARY Dr. Smith, Mr. Murphy and O D K get to work on Murrah Curve, on the theory that they are doing this for Grady Graham ' s own good. But it hurts us as much as it does them, because it turns out to be a slow pro- cess and wet concrete is a nuisance. We will all be each other ' s Valentines, because we all love each other, because this is the month for initiations and brotherly and or sisterly love. Once more the fresh- men beam over white, pink, red (roses) (carnations) and jeweled pins loaned by also-beaming big brothers (sisters) Agitation begins to have a portrait of Dr. Key painted to hang in the Administration Building. Exact location disputed, but idea agreed on as worthy of student contribu- tions. " Stop Thief " presented to a full-house — during Leap week. Both the play and the week great success, and coeds mildly suggest return engagement — of both! MILLSAPS CHOICE FOR BETTER BREAD ACME BAKERY 230 NORTH PARISH STREET JACKSON, MISS. L. V.

MARCH Rhymes and Bledsoe elected Miss Millsaps and Master Major in unannounced election. Other candidates. Swayze, Phifer, Ogden, M. Moore. Lancaster, Selman, Hudson. Van- diver, A. Smith. Millsaps Majors beat the Choctaws once again, this time to win the Dixie conference with bang-up basketball; Chunkin ' Charlie is the uncrowned king of the campus. The debaters go somewhere or other and debate again; not that it ' s unusual. Spring tentatively approaches the campus, stays long enough to seem permanent, and retreats, leaving us to unpack the sweaters again. APRIL Spring hols and glee club trip. Teachers go to coast for conventions and no classes for many students. Glee club comes back proud of (1) Mr. King (2) Itself. Both justifiably. Drive the campus mad babbling about hara-kiri; Say- hey now. Miss Wisteria; Beta Lambda; that Beautiful Methodist church; dessert for breakfast ; Jack Ferris. History majors go into retirement cram- ming for comprehensives, joined shortly afterward by English majors, social science, and on and on. They live through them, to their own intense satisfaction and the dis- gust of underclass friends who got sick and tired of hearing them beef about it. Sara Buie passed. So did Dolores Dye. Sigma Lambda in general and Ann Stone in particular put on the Varsity Show. Another full house. Show-stealers: Sam Schick as Sanders; Dick Dorman ' s songs — especially " Tomorrow ' s Tears. " Campus beautiful to the eye of the be- holder, what with green trees, flowers, what- not. Too bad so many of the flowers were onion grass. Founders Day; Dr. Huntley speaking; seniors optimistically in caps and gowns. Usual spring crop of trat picnics with the Y Retreat setting the pace. Remember that full moon? High school day causes usual hub-bub with cute, scared, cock-sure, bewildered, amazed, sophisticated (multiple-choice) seniors from Mississippi ' s choicest high schools being hopefully squired around by the cream of Millsaps.

The book reports are painfully constructed from quotations, opin- ions, and just plain bull. The term papers are pieced together at 2 o ' clock the night before they ' re due. And so . . . we come ... to EXAMS No snow this time to distract us. But almost as bad are the C-average seniors, smug about exemptions, who read the funny papers at the library; whisper loudly to each other " Let ' s go to the Grill " ; and otherwise prove obnoxious. We hate them. Then they look solemn. And they learn the words to " Alma Mater. " And they press the million wrinkles from their black gowns. And they graduate. And they leave. And we love them.
