Millsaps College strives to improve the intellect and personality ot its students, and, in this respect, the campus lille and customs ot its students contribute more to Millsaps than any other Factor. It is only Fitting, then, that your IQLLI Bohoshela pictures a cross section ol: lite at Millsaps. im: " -.M l Jilj College Classes Athletics Beauties Socials Organizations mYKl'Ll':l,.UY.l1"i LN llslll MID!

By their wisdom and foresight they have guided the college ever in the paths of progress, and in the pursuit of Major Millsaps' ideal for the school as a source of preparation for effective and unselfish service in business and in life, they have gained for it a reputation of a liberal arts college of real cultural and educational values. Therefore, it is to these men and to the spirit which they represent that vve dedicate this page. 11 The cheerful smile of Dr. Smith is a familiar sight to the students of Millsaps, each of whom the president knows by first name, and is indicative of the spirit in which he faces them across the presidential desk. M lllllllllll Students point with pride to the tangible evidences of progress at Mill- saps under the present administration, They boast of new and improved buildings, increased educational facilities, added courses and new professors, and, too, a beautified campus. But of more importance to them is a marked increase in the feeling of loyalty and of responsibility to the Alma Mater. which could have had no other source than in the inspiration of its President, Dr. M. L. Smith, Fired by the example of his practical enthusiasm con- cerning the possibilities of Millsaps, students have found college under him an experience in living and learning which they will long remember and appreciate. 12 Already having gained at Millsaps a reputation as an outstanding scholar and a better than average professor, Dr. William E. Riecken, in his two years as Dean, has shown himself equally as capable in the executive field. Because of his industry, sincerity, and geniality, he has won the respect and coopera- tion of students in his capacity as Dean, and their admiration and friendship as a person. A paragon of the spirit of interest and sympathy which should belong to a Dean of Women, Mrs. Mary B. Stone has done more to bring about easy and friendly relations between students and faculty than any other one personality at Millsaps, Whether a co-ed enters her office to check up on cuts, discuss a question of interest to the college, confess a problem, or just to chat, she is always sure of attentive interest and sound advice from this keen observer of campus life and its problems. 13 'L-1' Dr, W.

Meeting monthly with a membership made up of representatives from the different sororities and vvomen's organ- izations, they use their feminine vviles to persuade President, Dean, and general public to recognize the co-eds' campus rights.

In their spare moments they sell ads, distribute papers to the students, and mail copies to subscribers. BIC SHOTS Worthy of special mention, in addition to Editor Robertson and Business Manager Burvvell, are Josephine Timberlake and Martha Mansfield, editor and business manager of the Co-Ed Editiong and Charline Harris, Mitchell Wells, and Donald Winner, editor and co-business managers of the Freshman Edi- tion. EDITOR WHITE In spite ot numerous set-backs, such as the Cilee Club trip, comprehensives, and a f very busy statt, the I9-fll Bobashela has tinally managed to come from the press. Indispens- able to the editor were Helen Ricks, who was always willing to manage everythingg snap- shot artists Birclsong, Fox, and Ward, and John Rundle, who wrote the caustic com- ments.

THE BUSINESS STAFFS LAY OUT THE ADS BOBASHELA N as "Pop" to all his students, has made the Millsaps Singers nationally known. Although he divides his time between the college and the Jackson I-Iigh Schools, his greatest loyalty lies with Millsaps, and in the last six years he has carried the Singers through Missis- sippi and surrounding states on annual Che llll lllll DIRECTOR Mr. Alvin J. King, known simply good will tours". Again this year the student body minus forty-four has been forced to listen to that forty-four's tales of "mountainous Ken- tucky roads, I-Iighbee's in Cleveland, and SNOW in Wooster", for the high point of the Singer's year was another "good willl' tour which extended through Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Ohio. After a brief period of anxiety over cuts, this excited groupof Singers boarded Joe Grey- hound on March 24, to spend two whole weeks singing, exaggerating southern drawls, and nick-naming all the Joes and Josies. Chief stops were Birmingham, Cleveland, Pop King's home town, Smith- ville, Ohio, the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, Louisville, and Chaperone Aunt MR. ALVIN J. KINC Josie Stone's home town, Fayetteville, Ten- nessee. Joe Driver Marsh safely returned the Singers, garrulous and happy, on April 4. Pre-trip activities of the Singers included presentation of HandeI's "The Messiah" at Christmas and numerous Sun- day trips to Mississippi towns, as well as a number of local concerts. On May 20, the club sponsored the concert of Andrew Cainey, a former member of the Singers who has gained recognition as a concert baritone. .... On June I, the Singers present- ed their final program of the year, a Spring Festival, on the steps of Sullivan-I-larrell I-lall. llllllllll OFFICERS EUGENE PEACOCK ------- Presldent ELIZABETH CAMPBELL - - - Vlce-Presldent JAMES LIVESAY - - - Buslness Manager THOMAS SPENCLER - Llbrarlan EVALINE KI-IAYAT - Secretary SOPRANOS Alma Elizabeth Carl Margaret Currie Ann Duke Ruth Cubbons Katherine Ctrlrnes Frances Irby Janne Lou Kung Betty Larsen Helen Ricks Sylvla Roberts Martha Shetfleld Jacquellne Stevens Ceraldlne Sumrall Frances Wroten ALTOS Eltzabeth Campbell Cayle Doggett Evallne Khayat Carol Lowe Loulse Miller Vnrglnla Mlnyard Adele Neu Ellenuta Sells Kathleen Stanley Mary Stone TENORS John Burwell Robert Pearson Avery Phulp Davlcl Watts Buddy Wclftord Noel Womack BASSES Aden Barlow Sam Bnrclsong James Hlnman Jack Kung Eugene Peacock Walter Rlclgway James Cavett Alf Saums Clem Crook Thomas Spengler Duck Dorman Lawrence Warnng James Llvesay Ess Whlte Waring, Saums, Peacock, Soengler, A, Kung, J.

White the club has presented a variety of one act plays and one full length play, Death Takes A Holiday. The Players have acquired this year a good deal of much-needed backstage equipment which, along with a large amount of new talent, has done much to make this year's presentations far superior to those of the past. Death Takes A Holiday marks a new high in Millsaps pro- ductions. In this play, Dr, White, through the cast and scenery, managed to achieve a tremendous effect which made the audience forget it was watching amateurs. Death was enthusiastically received by the student body and outsiders alike and has done much to focus the attention of Jackson play-goers on the Millsaps Players. Among the one act plays given this year were Pink and Patches, The Sound and the Fury, The Man in the Bowler Hat, His First Date, The Black Valise, and The Valiant. Making-up Dress Rehearsal Cie lllllllllll The Dramatic Club in part, The Dramatic Club was carefully reorganized this year, and as a result the membership com- prises almost one-fifth of the student body. This year Joe Brooks served as president, with Betty Larsen and Bob Nichols as vice president arid secretary, respectively. ln the fall the club spon- sored a lecture on the art of make-up. .3 '7 l ALPHA PSI OMEGA Brooks, Campbell, Chichester, Fitts, Fox Graves, Kolb, Larsen Nichols, Ricks, Schiek Spengler, Stone, Terry, Thompson, E, White, M.

Membership is composed of those who have shown their ability in acting, makeup, stage or business man- aging, property collecting, and the like. Considering the num- ber of students who participate in dramatics, its membership of eighteen is rather conservative. Officers this year were Mary Stone, presidentg Joe Brooks, vice-president, and Nelson Nail, secretary. The members meet, when there is a quorum, to dis- cuss the problems facing the club and to initiate newcomers. I lllmflll 1.31. Scenes from DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY l..

Lib and Bo pause from their many duties long enough to pose by Millsaps' historic old cannon. The title of Master Major or Miss Millsaps is the highest honor which a Millsaps student can receive. Each represents the student who is most outstanding in the widest field of activity. Traditionally won by seniors, these positions were voted this year, and rightly so, to Charles Murry and Elizabeth Campbell. 45 Zlgllllllll wlggxx, N PRESIDENT Joel McDavid, one of the most popular of Millsaps' preachers, has done a full year's work persuading the Class of '4l to leave a memo- rial-the new columns at the North State entrance bespeak his efforts. The towering young man from Alabama is also president of the Christian Council, a power in ODK and the Y Cabinet. OFFICERS Succeeding himself as vice-president of the Class of '4l is Charlie Ward, Millsaps' star athlete. Few lincluding, especially, the neighboring Choctawsl who have seen Chunkin' Charlie's agile performance on the basketball court, the gridiron, or the baseball diamond will ever forget him. Another repeat, we find Maxine Young of Terry again secretary of her class. Mack mothers Millsaps M-Men-is pretty good at tennis, herself. She'lI teach school next year-maybe. 46 'fs Q 1' Q55 ..... Representative of the feeling ot the Senior Class are Nat Rogers, Jim Vxfroten, and Roy Clark. As Campus leaders they have made their mark in college activities and are concerned chiefly with vvhat will come after they regrettully lay aside cap and gown. we W xg'- XX x X.- SR VR, .44 1 1 ' T' LESLIE MANDEVILLE ADDISON - - Jackson Lambda Chi Alpha Y.

"Hook" Stone has completed two highly successful years in senior college athletics. Following the resignation of former Coach B. O. Van Hook as Athletic Director, Coach Stone assumed this responsibility and has molded a good football team and has helped to guide the Major Five to another Dixie Conference championship. Success during the past two years has been Coach Stone's because of his iron rule practice session discipline and because he has taken an active interest in the players themselves. Well liked, efficient, and valuable co-worker on the athletic staff has been Coach Bernie Ward. Also in his second year at Millsaps, Coach Ward has played a vital part in building this year's superb basketball squad. Base- ball was also under his supervision. Coach Melvin Richardson made a successful football assistant and was also coach of track.

Loyal Millsaps supporters were wor- ried when tormer coach of basketball B. O, Van l-look gave up athletics, but at the season's end they had nothing but praise for the work ot new head coach Bernie Ward.

Prowess of the Major cagers is evi- denced by their clean sweep of the Dixie Tournament. Fans who saw the Millsaps team down Spring Hill, Chattanooga, Mississippi College, and Loyola, all in short order, were agreed that it deserved its place in basket- ball's hall ot tame. Boasting two near-professional quin- tets ot veterans and skilled newcom- ers, the Majors played spectacular as well as steady basketball, Spectators were kept on edge as the Millsaps tive handled the ball with dazzling skill or Hlllll changed at will from the old slow break style to a more rapid brand of basketball. Returning from last year's cham- pionship team were Charlie Ward, Clifton Jones, Oscar Tynes, Willie Branch, Willie Carter, Milan Richard- son, and Joe Willie Miles. New men who aided the Major cause this year were Jay Smith, Charles Kemmitzer, and Buddy Carr. Individual honors went to rangy Charlie Ward and sharpshooting Clit- ton Jones when they were placed on the All Dixie Conference tive.

Meets have been scheduled with Mississippi College, Louisiana Tech and other neighboring colleges and competition throughout the season will be difficult. The Major thin clads were blessed with the return ot numbers of veterans from last year's squad, while talented transfers complete a tor- midable roster. Outstanding in high hurdles is Ford lScoopl Canterbury whose speed and form promise to win many tirsts for the Majors. -Cordon Worthington, tour year veteran, has repeatedly proved his ability as a jumper and is expected to star again this year. Handling low hurdles and the dashes will be veteran Joe Willie Miles and a new comer, Bill Fullilove.

Ciames with such strong teams as Ole Miss, Spring Hill and Mississippi College were typical ot the competition which the Majors faced this year. ln a three game series with the Mississippi College nine the Majors took two and dropped one hard fought contest.

This year Milton Caniff, a young American artist of proven talent and promising future, well known to college students as the creator of such beauties as the Dragon Lady, Burma, and Norman- die Drake, kindly agreed to lend a critical eye to Millsaps pulchritude. The pic- tures of twenty beautiful girls chosen by the heads of all social groups on the campus were sent to him for his opinion. The results of his selection are as you find them in the following pages: Milli- cent Lampe, Most Beautiful, Gertrude Triplett, Tip Stuart, Faola Lowe, Una Caldwell, and Shirley Chichester in the order listed.

Since 1893 Millsaps K.A.'s have worshipped at the shrine of Lee and the Confederacy, worn the crimson rose, played billiards in their Game Room, and immersed themselves in campus politics. This year, with the help of the alumni, the frateres have taken a new inter- est in southern womanhood and dis- tributed pins to some half dozen fair examples on the campus, sev- eral elsewhere. Leisurely led by "Ho-Hum" Rogers, Lauderdale, and Rundle the Gentlemen held a state convention, kept the south end of the campus noisy, and surprised themselves by winning one intra- mural cup.

Chief news of the year was the complete annexation of the Wright family-including Olga, who left the Millsaps brotherhood cold in favor of a member of the State tribe. Life for the boys on Marshall Street is far from simple: The younger members follow the time-honored Pike tradition of trying to be B. M. O. C., build floats until five A.

Millsaps' favorite sons and daughters-and rightly so, one becomes convinced-are her debat- ers and orators, who time after time have brought home to Alma Mater those gleaming cups and medals. Each year the most silver-tounged of these argumentative champions are gathered into Pi Kappa Delta, a national forensic fraternity boasting l48 chapters. MEM Roy Clark, President Nat Rogers, Vice-President Kenny Holyfield, Secretary Eleanor Castle David Donald In December the Millsaps Debate Tour- nament was sponsored by the local chapter.

The Pre-Medical Club, sponsored by AED, includes all pre-medical students at Millsaps.

Membership in Kit Kat, so it is claimed, is the greatest distinction which can come to creative writers and students of literature at Millsaps. The oldest honorary on the campus, Kit Kat was for years affiliated with a national literary organiza- tion, but decided of late that its own prestige is sufficient and went local. These literati meet, theoretically, once a month lin reality, whenever the mood strikes theml in a glorified bull-session where they eat heartily, boast of all they've read, and present original masterpieces to the club for critical demo- lition. Some day, come the millenium, a more aspiring member of the group will publish a best- seller, but there is small possibility even then that his Kit Kat brothers will like it.

Her methods of teaching have been praised by a number of leading artists, and the results obtained can be pointed to with pride by the college and the community. She works untiringly to fire her students with the ambition which she herself has for them, and it is largely due to her that the Beethoven Club looms so important this year. Meeting on Tuesday nights right after Clee Club, the Beethoven Club has served as a weekly serenade for Founder's occupants and a uniting group for musically inclined students. While the nucleus of the group is composed of those students studying piano and voice, non- participating members are urged to join, and, indeed, predominate numerically this year. Talent from the piano and voice departments combines to give programs calculated to present a bird's- eye view of the development of musical history. The Beethoven Club Ciuest Night this Year presented a program of ensemble music to Jackson musicians. Although the membership is predominantly feminine, the club has for its president one of the few male members. The ambitious program chairman prepared this year a detailed year book which was seldom followed, but the programs were musically informative and pleasing to the ear. 148 w X ,s as -.Mit-1-X i K , ' X I 5.9 X Y 5 X X O X5 lN llllll.

CAPITOL ST. JACKSON MISSISSIPPI "A finger to the debate team for running off with ALL the honors up at Union." Comes now the Freshman Edition- "As usual-the weekly item about Helen and Nat, but this is a very special one. Congratulations to you, Helen. lNow that that's a closed case guess we'II have to fill out the paragraph with Ess-'n'-Betty dope.l " Remember the mumps epidemic?- "D. T., you're fairly caught-what evidence! Catching mumps three days after your girl does-and some of you co-eds should be coming down soon too, what with Ogden, Powers, Blondie, Bob West, Craves, Daniels, etc, on the list." "Rivaling the wild tales of the glee club trip are those of the Sig picnic Saturday night." "A finger of scorn to Jane and Anders. Don't you know it's darker outside than in Calloway's parlor." APRIL-spring is here at last, and in the spring- "Dissension in the Kappa Alpha ranks. Reid Bingham is being a little fly in Ney "Budgie" Williams soup. Ain't it a shame he's not still a pledge, Ney?" "And we hear that things really popped on Chi Omega night at the Roof. The biggest scandal occurred when Mary McRae walked in with Wilford Doss." In honor of spring-"lf the bench behind the science hall is still there when school is out, it won't be John and Shirley's fault. They haven't missed an afternoon lately, and we don't believe that comprehensives is a good excuse." "A dingy digit to Rice Wilson and Tip Stewart for being seen on the golf course last week. Yes, they were playing golf." .I. L.

Nothing could make us hap- pier than to see B. B. Brady have meas- les and fail all his exams." "A staggering finger at Rube Wilder for increasing the membership of the K, A. Auxiliary. Wonder now how long the status quo of this group will stand." "Fireflies, a half moon, half a fried chicken, and The Half lDewitt Jamesl were all present at the K. A. picneck Saturday night."
