PERHAPS WE DID NOT START THE TREND, BUT MILLSAPS IS A PART OF IT. WE WILL AS- SUME OUR ROLE IN THIS EVERCHANGING PICTURE. NEWNESS IS SOMETIMES GLITTERING, SOMETIMES A GIGAN- TIC FEARFULNESS. FEARFULNESS IN THIS TIME WILL BE DEATH. ONLY CLEAR VISION AND INTELLIGENT INSIGHT CAN SEE INTO THE FUTURE MORE THAN THE IMMEDIATE CHANGES. CHANGED CURRICU- LUM AND A DECREASING PERCENTAGE OF MALE STUDENTS ARE ONLY MINOR DIFFERENCES. EXTRA HOURS OF WORK AND NEW JOBS WILL BE BUT THE BEGINNING OF THIS NEW ERA. THE NEW WORLD MUST BE A COMPLETE WORLD. THERE CAN BE NO BLACKED-OUT PEOPLES OR RESTRICTED AREAS. FREEDOM MUST BE THE PROPERTY OF ALL MEN, FOR WE MUST SHARE IT TO EXERCISE IT. THIS IS WHAT MILLSAPS BELIEVES. WE CAN NOT PREDICT THE OUTCOME. HERE WE ONLY AT- TEMPT TO PORTRAY SOME OF THE TRENDS OF THE SURGING CHANGES ABOUT US. MILLSAPS, YOU ARE YOUNG. TO YOU BELONG VISION AND FORESIGHT. WE COMMEND YOU TO THE AGES. AND HERE WE PRESENT THE NEW MILLSAPS . . . LITTLE HANDS ON BIG TASKS. II 1 L L s n s Can this be Millsaps? Yes, perhaps it is now, but with such a picture there can be no doubt the boys will come marching back. 13 OMEHOW IN THE HURRY OF IT ALL, WE GET TO CLASS CO CASIONALLY. THE KNOWLEDGE THEREUFON EXTENDED TO US BOTHERS US INTO A HAZE. WE DON ' T QUITE GRASP ITS MEANING. WE SEEK SOMETHING BEYOND THE MERE ACA- DEMIC. IT ' S NICE TO FIND A FRIEND WHO KNOWS HOW YOUTH LIVES. BY THE VITALITY OF HIS ACTIONS WE ARE AWARE THAT YALE HAS SENT US A TEACHER FOR YOUTH. PROGRESSIVE THOUGHT AND LIBERALISM ARE QUALITIES SYNONYMOUS WITH HIS NAME. THIS MAN FROM FLORIDA HAS AWAKENED OUR SLUMBERING MINDS WITH REALITIES OF THE WORLD WE LIVE IN. MORE THAN THIS, HE HAS LED US IN THINKING ABOUT THE WORLD WE WILL LIVE IN,- THE WORLD THAT IS EVOLVING FROM PRESENT DAY EVENTS AND THE ONE WHICH WE WILL HELP TO BUILD. GOING EVEN FURTHER, HE HAS GIVEN US THE HOPE, AND SO INSTRUCTED US, THAT THIS WORLD MIGHT BE FASH- IONED AFTER THE DESIRES AND NEEDS OF MAN. WE CAN ASK FOR NO GREATER HELP THAN THE REALIZATION THAT MAN WILL YET KNOW MAN. WE DARE TO HOPE FOR A NEW WORLD AND A NEW MILLSAPS. WE ARE THANKFUL FOR WHAT HAS BEEN GIVEN US, AND WE WISH TO DEDICATE THIS VOLUME- THE NEW MILLSAPS-OF THE BOBASHELA TO HENRY MORTON BULLOCK. __ WHILE YOU ARE AWAY FROM SCHOOL WE MISS YOU. WE ARE ASSURED OF YOUR SUCCESS AND AWAIT YOUR RETURN. DEDICATED to DR. II E R Y II. BULLOCK n VF hall knov, the ?l T ' J AND THE TRUTH Shall make you -- 1 i Li. u v 1 Hule lA m PRESIDENT M. L. SMITH This year Millsaps College begins the second fifty years of its educational service to the youth of Mississippi. Its endowment, national rating, and tradition assure it of con- tinued and increasing usefulness. But as important as the endowment and rating are, prob- ably the greatest single factor in the life of the college is that " Spirit of Millsaps " which is so intangible and yet so surely known by those students and people who get into its life. Let me congratulate every person whose opportunity it is to live in this college com- munity and whose fortune it is to discover the spirit of Millsaps. M. L. SMITH, President. Page 1 1 .

He is a many-faceted personality: a member of AED, honorary pre-med fraternity; a teacher of biology; and Dean of Men. He is admirably fitted for the Dean ' s desk, possessing an agreeable, friendly personality in addition to a will very definitely his own. He is a clear, concise speaker. What he says, you get— whether it be a fact of biol- ogly or a matter of student attend- ance. You ' re OK, " Dean Bill. " Mrs. Mary B. Stone, Dean of Wo- men, is a very versatile person. Beside her duties as Dean, she is a member of Chi Delta, honorary literary soror- ity, as well as of Sigma Lambda, hon- orary leadership sorority. She is ad- visor to the Women ' s Council and is an excellent English teacher. " I am a rather extroverted person, " she admits laughingly. She is also extremely capable and intelligent. She is as well-liked as she is likable. Hats off and a hand-shake to you, Mrs. Stone, for handling so many duties so well. Page 13 Quw44 Uum Home of the Gril the campus . .

Mary Emma iFive by Five ' Ervin, Miss Mill- saps, is one of those people who must find plenty to do or explode with repressed energy. We are glad to state that she is very far from exploding at the present moment. She did her bit in winning the war this year with her splen- did work in the War Bond Drive, during which greenbacks and small change flowed through her fingers like quicksilver. Also on her list of accomplishments is her organization of the famous " Five by Five " Club, limited to those with appropriate waistlines. MISS HILLSIIVS The handsome masculine face looking out of this page belongs to Fred Tatum, Master Major, who has left us for medical school. Some will remember this same face grinning out of the PURPLE AND WHITE sporting page above its owner ' s crisp reports of Millsaps athletic affairs. Fred comes from a very fa- mous Millsaps family indeed. His grandfather ' s portrait hangs on the walls of the chapel, and Tatum Classroom is dedicated to that same old gentleman, whose name on a bronze plate dec- orates the door through which grandson Fred has passed many a time. Fred has upheld a worthy tradition well. Page 22 WHO ' S WHO.. MARY EMMA ERVIN . . . Secretary - Treasurer of the Student Body and Miss Millsaps. JANICE TRIMBLE . : . . .

QlM wat ui Page 29 ike nun OFFICERS They look blandly down on the passing mess. Buddy Carr, this year ' s Senior Class President, can look back upon a long and successful ath- letic career. He can also look back upon a long list of friends, both eds and co-eds . . . especially the latter! His collection of co-eds is famed as one of the wonders of Millsaps. A member of the Marine Corps Reserve, Buddy is already amply qualified to take the situation well in hand when he lands. As editor of the PURPLE AND WHITE, Harold Turnage is already quite a well-known person. Now, besides the journalistic quill, he has added to his cap a political feather . . . that of Senior Vice-President. He is a member of three honoraries: Kit Kat, Eta Sigma Phi, and ODK. He ' s a Lambda Chi Alpha brother and is featured in the 1943 WHO ' S WHO IN AMERICAN COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES. Harold is definitely a " Who ' s Who " at Millsaps. Fanny Wroten, Senior Class Secretary and Treasurer, is a Jill of all trades, belonging to Alpha Psi Omega, Kappa Delta Epsilon, Eta Sigma Phi honoraries, and Fhi Mu social sorority. She ' s pledge mother of the latter. Fanny is also a scion of a traditional Millsaps family, for not only did her mother and father meet on the campus, but she also has had a brother to graduate from the college and has another now in its Sophomore Class.

THE WORLD AFTER THE WAR Page 39 e J 11 II This is Buddy Wofford ' s third year at Millsaps. It is also his third year as President of his class— an honor he first started winning in his freshman year. If Uncle Sam had not interfered, it would have been a fairly safe bet that Buddy would have consistently won the Senior presi- dency in his fourth year, thus perfectly rounding out a career as B.M.O.C. which is already something to be proud of. Politically, scholastically, and personally speaking, Buddy is tops. OFFICERS They look blandly about, so glad lhal troubles don ' t bother therr Jitterbugs already know Dan Wright as the proprietor of a band which was going places in those dear dead days beyond recall. Dan, an accomplished musician, is Junior Vice-President as well. Like most of our 1-A, A-l boys, Dan is now in the army. One look at Emma Gene Gainey ' s dark beauty will tell you why the heart of James Stucken- schneider is all aflutter these days. Emma Gene in the flesh would make your own heart flutter —if you are of the masculine gender. Emma Gene is Secretary of her class, and we predict a brilliant success for her in whatever she undertakes that requires beauty, brains, and charm.

When they say this, you know the ' re talking to Harry Frye, Fresident of the Sophomore Class. Harry ' s an all-round good guy— a hot tennis player as well as a capable politician and an able student. Since Harry belongs to the Army Reserves, by the time you read this he ' ll probably be learning his P ' s and Q ' s at a military s ' hool rather than at Mill- saps. He ' s a great guy, Frye, and let ' s hope that he never jumps out of the Frying Pan into the fire. Billy Shackelford, in his sophomore year, is already a Little Big Shot, having copped the Vice- Presidency of his class as well as distinguishing himself in various other ways. Net the least of these is his engaging personality and the intellectual expression he always wears. There is plenty behind that expression, tco— or we wouldn ' t be writing about him on this page.

Take a look at that face of his in the accompanying picture and see if you don ' t agree with us. A pleasing personality, an agreeable grin, and an unusual name— could a B.MO.C. possess better assets? Ferhaps its the masculine charm shared by the men of his family, but the fact remains that Bill Dabbs, Freshman Vice-President, is already a name to reckon with on the campus. This fa- mous name was recently shouted by James Webb over the public address system in connection with the war bond drive. Even the PURPLE AND WHITE termed Bill Dabbs an " intelligent fresh- man " , and printed his opinion on the probable duration of the war. It can clearly be seen by this that Bill has the international, as well as the local, outlook. Watch his smoke, folks! Lustrous-eyed Dale Burnham, that rose between two thorns in the photograph, is featured en this page as Secretary-Treasurer of her class, and elsewhere in this book as a Millsaps beauty. Dale hails from Magee, Mississippi, and we could hardly imagine a more charming representative of her home town, nor anyone friendlier and more agreeable.

The success was due largely to the fact that they beat the Choc- taws three games to one. The Majors were defeated in the first game by one point, and then they took the other three in a row. These games were played while in the Army-Collegiate League, composed of Mississippi College, the Mississippi Ordnance Plant, Jackson Air Base, and the Mississippi Guards. Millsaps was the leading team until they dropped out after the Christmas holidays. The Majors also played a four-game series with Loyola, losing all four to the fast, tall boys from New Orleans. With the exception of Captain Buddy Carr and Lightning Lowther, the Millsaps basketball team was composed of inexperienced men. Carr and Lowther returned from last year ' s team to lead the offensive play. Guard positions were played by Joe Stubblefield and Jack Glaze. Both saw action last year, Glaze as a freshman. Paired at forward with Lowther was Mike McLaurin, who also saw action last year as a freshman. Carr at center rounded cut the team. Gale Fant and John Durfey, freshmen, rendered valuable aid at forward. Big John Greer, transfer from S.L.I., played great ball at guard. Page 63 I it v - ■ Pike Speedbal! Team Sig Softball Team I T II A Under the careful guidance of the in- tramural council, Millsaps had the most colorful and exciting intramural program in its history Speedball got under way with a bang. The Pikes took an early lead by dispos- ing of the Sigs, Lambda Chis, and Non Frats. The KA ' s, at the same time, had won their first three games. The cham- pionship game was a thriller, with the two teams evenly matched. The Pikes scored early in the first quarter by virtue of a blocked kick, and held this 7-0 lead until the last few seconds when the KA ' s push- ed over a touchdown. The extra point failed, giving the Pikes a 7-6 victory. The Kappa Sigs went through the soft- ball race without any trouble, winning all games by a comfortable margin. The Sigs beat the Pikes, Lambda Chis, Non Frats, and KA ' s behind the steady pitch- ing of Joe Stubblefield and the consistent hitting of Dick Catledge and Dave Gray- den. The Pikes won the volleyball without any trouble by taking the measure of the KA ' s, Sigs, and Ncn Frats. The outstand- ing playing of Allen, Webb, and Mc- Laurin put the Fikes in a position to go through the schedule losing but cne game. Pike Vol ' eybalt Team p age 64 t A L S MEN... Ping pcng was next on the list. Ninety students participated in this intramural, with each fraternity entering as many men as they desired. After two weeks of continuous playing the count was taken, and the result was that the Sigs and Pikes had tied at Iwenty wins each. Both fraternities were given winner ' s points but a play-cff was held for the cup, with the five best members from both fraternities playing it off. The Sigs wen by a 3-2 count. The individual winner was Parker Walker (KSl with Clifton Schroder (LXA) as runner-up. Fcr the second time the Sigs and Pikes couldn ' t decide who would take the cup withcut a play-off. In a double elimination basketball tournament, the Pikes and Sigs sailed thrcugh without trouble until they played each other. The play-off game was easily taken by the Sigs by a sccre of 32-20, with Fred Tatum leading the attack with eleven points. Also sharing honors were Curtis Magee and Charles Dent. The free throw tournament is being held, with the outcome having a definite bearing on the big cup. At present the Pikes have a slim margin over the Sigs for first place. Sig Basketball Team Bubber Walker, Ping Pong Champion Page 65 I I T R II I It 1 L S Intramural sports here at Millsaps for the girls con- sists of round-rcbin tournaments held in basketball, softball, golf, table tennis, volleyball, tennis, and archery. In addition to these tournaments, a field day is held in the spring. In the individual events medals are awarded to the winner or outstanding player and to the runner-up, while a cup is awarded to the winning team. This year the ping pong intramurals were played by experienced veterans cf the game. All the teams really went to town when it came to swatting that little ball. Some fine competition developed among the players, but Ann Brien led the Phi Mu ' s to an over- whelming victory. The other teams that participated were the Beta Sigs, KD ' s, Chi O ' s, and the Non Soror- ity team. The 1943 intramural basketball cup will go to the Non Sorority girls. Led by Brown, Harris, and Adene Hurst as forwards and Stroud, Reeves, and Aylene Hurst as guards, the Non Sorority girls finished the season with five wins and no losses. The winners were followed in a close second by a strong Kappa Delta team. The Beta Sigs finished third, capably led by Hettie Faye Beasley. The Beta Sig team scored an upset the last night of the season, handing the Chi O ' s a sound trouncing. The Fhi Mu ' s carr.e out as the losers. Page 66 WOMEN Gym queen, Hettie Faye Beasley, led the Beta Sigs to intramural softball championship. Beginning by defeating the runners-up, the KD ' s, the BSO ' s swept through their following four games without a loss. The KD ' s and Chi O ' s had strong teams but they fin- ally yielded to the champs. Peggy Stroud, on first base, and Cecil Haeuser, with her heavy hitting, were a great asset to the team. The KD ' s came in second, losing only one game. Sara Dewees ' hitting and Alice Owens ' pitching were the featured strength on the KD ' s. The bright spots in fielding were Jo Wells and Dell Walling. The Chi Omegas came in third, losing only two games. Following in fourth place were the Non Sorority Girls, with the Phi Mu ' s coming in last. Beta Sigs celebrating their softball victory • CoacS Dcve M. Carson G Y II GLuei, Coach Dave M. Carson took over the physi- cal education program at Millsaps this year. He finished his college career at Union Uni- versity and later took pest graduate work at the Y.M.C.A. in Chicago, having been physi- cal education instructor at Enochs junior high school here in Jackson for the past year. He has proved himrelf highly capable by expanding Millsaps physical education and the intramural program so that all students have an opportunity to participate. The horizontal bars have affcrded an opportunity for seme to develop in acrobatics, while ethers play basketball, speedball, softball, tennis, box, cr wrestle. For real toughening an obstacle course was built so that the boys could get in first class shape. Many boys in the service from Millsaps are thankful that they tcck physical training. tit . • V r III! ILL. r Since Miss Frances Decell has been here at Millsaps, she has seen her dream of a campus playroom come true. Every night from 7:00 until 8:00 o ' clock, the students gather in the basement of Founders ' Hall for a recreation period of fun, reading, and games. She has al:o been working on a once-a-week " play night " in the Gym and has taken off to a good start. Miss Decell spends much of her time spon- soring the Majorette Club. This is an athletic club for girls that are outstanding in school ac- tivities. The remainder of her valuable time is spent in " running things " in the women ' s gym classes, riding horseback on Friday after- noons, and keeping her Boston bulldog, Com- modore, happy by buying him hamburger meat. In her three years at Millsaps, Miss Decell has done much for intramural sports.

Miss Frances Decell f J A ladet Howie, Cadet Langley, Cadet McEnteer SELECTED THE BEAUTIES When the initial plans for the 1943 BOBASHELA were made, it was decided that in order to give the book one more different and distinctive feature, the beauties would be chosen in person, by a group of impartial judges. In this way, mere could enter into the selection than would be possible from pho- tographs, which it has been the custom to use. So, a sure-enough, old-fashioned beauty contest took place. The girls paraded in, the judges drank their fill of feminine beauty, and the headches began. " Pick out five more beautiful than the rest? Impossible! " ... But that is really what happened. Our judges were three cadets from the Mississippi Institute of Aeronautics at Madison, Mississippi —Cadet Harry H. Howie, from Andrews, S. C, Cadet John Alfred Langley, Jr., from Marion, S. C, and Cadet Frank Duff McEnteer, from DuBois, Pennsylvania. They chose these five girls, in order, as Mill- saps ' Five Most Beautiful: Dell Walling, Frances Alexander, Lavinia Johnson, Helen Alexander, and Evelyn Dale Burnham.

Since the war put such a hitch in transpcrtation, the musically inclined are forced to rehash the trips of the " good ole days, " or not talk at all. Their enforced " live at home and like it " state didn ' t quell the " do-mi-sol-do " gang, though. They started off the year by joining with the ether Jackson schools for a Christmas presentation of the City Auditorium of Handel ' s MESSIAH on its 200th birthday. Later, the Millsaps choir returned to the Au- ditorium in a Sunday afternoon concert, which was dedicated to the former members of the Millsaps Singers who are now in the armed service. Other local appearances included the presentation of selected numbers for the Mississippi Educational Association Convention in the Heidelberg Victory Room, the Men ' s Bible Class at Galloway Church, and at Pratt Colored Methodist Church. Due to the armed forces ' constant drain on Millsaps ' man-power, the Singers ' future began to look a bit gloomy. Kathleen saved the day, though, by " pitching in " with the tenors, and Professor Alvin J. King Director seme of Pep ' s high school boys helped fill in with the other voices, so the all-girl cantata is being saved for another year. Hungry want- ed to be a baritone, but gave up the idea when Pop said it didn ' t seem lady-like. Even though many of the boys have gone, the Singers still remember them and think of them at the close of each prcgram and rehear- cal as they sing the Benediction. KNOWN FROM THE GULF TO THE GREAT LAKES FOR THEIR QUALITY OF TONE AND QUALITY OF CHARACTER Page 113 THE QeetkcMj n The outstanding event of the year for the Beethoven Club was the presentation of a talk and a group of songs by Miss Esther Amelie Oldt, contralto and teacher of speech at Anti- och College. Also, the club was honored by having two members selected to serve at a re- ception for Rudolph Ganz, noted pianist under whom Mrs. Roberts studied. Mr. Ganz gave a program at Belhaven College and held a mas- ter class for the Millsaps music students. At Christmas the music faculty entertained the club with a tea-musical. Journalistically speaking, a " finger " at all those members who were absent— bcth the music and the refresh- ments were grand. The club, under the direction of Mrs. J. L. Roberts, has enjoyed a series of fine programs at its semi-monthly meetings in Elsinore Hall. These programs have included two piano num- bers by Mrs. Roberts and Catherine Richard- son, Jean Calloway and Jean Whyte, and Jean Colloway and Martin White; a program by Mrs. Coullet; ones combining the talents of bcth piano and voice pupils,- and record programs.

First, Mirl Whitaker, after planning and photographing much of this book, left for camp, turning the reins over to capable Elizabeth Buchanan, who subsequently elcped with a high school sweetheart and left the work to Clara Porter, who— at the time of the writing —seems to have escaped the hoodoo and is about to bring the publication to a successful conclusion. Luckily, the editorial staff this year is somewhat larger than formerly, and all three successive editcrs have been individuals who know their stuff, as some glances through the book should tell you. Mirl ' s foresight in thor- oughly laying out the ground-work before his departure is especially to be recommended. BETTER LATE THAN NEVER Qaka kela The same jinx pestering the Editorial Staff reached out early this year and snatched James Armstrong, whose place was ably filled by Maury Ross, who in turn vanished from the scene, leaving matters in the hands of Zach Taylor. At this writing, Zach has not yet succumbed to the jinx and is doing a pretty good job on what remains to be done. It is noteworthy that this would have been Arm- strong ' s second year as business manager. It is also noteworthy that Pi Kappa Alpha has broken the record by furnishing two business managers for cne issue of the Bobashela. Despite these jars, the business managers, assisted by a very capable staff, have suc- ceeded in getting those all-important ads, as some quick glances will assure you. These commercial details must be handled by some- one, and they ' ve dene a good job— besides getting ycur 50c subscription.

The editor feels that the " it has been hard work, but if you enjoy the book I ' m repaid " formula will not suffice for this page this year. I don ' t deny these facts but such ideas are too mechanistic. You perhaps remember when the BOBASHELA seemed hopelessly spread over the states of Arkansas and California— with little hope of survival. Much credit belongs to Clara Porter, and even Dr. Moore made history by advancing one good idea. I feel grateful to hosts of others who worked on and on; they supplied many of the ideas incorporated in this book. Do not let any of these persons, with their false modesty, brush off the compliments they deserve. The BOBASHELA is ever thankful to Mr. Bob Faerber for his vivid imagination and constant help in our relations with the Alabama Engraving Company. This year Mr. George Preiss proved new friends are very valuable also, and we thank him and the Paragon Press for their cooperation. Becky and Sonny were always fun to be with, and we welcome them as Millsaps students of tomorrow. Thanks to their vitality the editor was hard pressed to keep up with them; but we have their pictures as the result. In trying to find the theme and motive for this book I ' ve made an attempt to find the pulse of the campus. At times it roared forth as loudly as the " juke " box in the Grill, and then at other times as feebly as an answer to Mrs. Goodman ' s Sophomore lit. exam. But I hope I haven ' t counted the beat wrongly. I feel that this thought of a new world was in your thinking. The idea, the spirit of Millsaps, of liberalism is neces- sary for our new world. MIRL WESLEY WHITAKER Camp Magnolia Magnolia, Arkansas Millsaps College M. L. SMITH, President Jackson, Mississippi IIHSiipS . . . Accepts the Challenge of mil and TOMORROW Never before have the students of Millsaps been offered such a vast op- portunity to prove their strength, their courage, and their ingenuity in fac- I ing the challenge of today and of tomorrow. Theirs will be the bounding privilege of rebuilding a world of true peace ... a world that the vision | and enthusiasm of youth can anticipate . . . that the character and training of disciplined minds can bring into being. With liberalism and truth as her cornerstone, Millsaps throughout the years has molded the character and developed the minds of students who would " look for the horizon that others have not yet seen " . Today on the horizon behind the war-clouds a new world challenges her students. Strengthened by its past, and looking to the future, Millsaps is helping students meet that challenge.

The school daze began again in Sep- tember and everything get off to a good start for Millsaps secend half of the cen- tury. The war had begun to thin out some students but many had gone to school all through the summer. Everybody seemed relieved that the compulsory chapel had a shorter period. Freshman Day soon rolled around and Freshman Queen Berryhill lasted through October when she ruled the Navy exhibit at the Fair. As Dora Hwa had gone off to graduate school, van der Krcef came in the nick of time from Java to keep the Far East repre- sented on our campus. Then came Fall Tap Day and everybody was thinking about hew they ever lasted through longer chapel periods. Night Life on the campus included the annual stunt night and Dr. White ' s new crop of players in some one-act plays. Later on they presented Milne ' s " Mr. Pirn Passes By. " Coach Carson by this time was showing the eds and co-eds a real practical sports program for Millsaps and some of the phys- ical ed students were getting in commando trim. The PURPLE AND WHITE announced in November that over 400 Millsaps men were in the Nation ' s armed forces. Over 74 of the men are officers, and many more are graduating from Officers ' Candidate School. The Millsaps War Bond Drive was such a big success that it netted $70,000, and got the congratulations of the governor.

The OKD members continued the peren- nial and historical discussion of a campus infirmary abetted by the annual editorial from the P W. The Sigma Lambdas had their annual Varsity Show which included such purely fictitious characters as Prof. Meanders, Capt. Happy Jones, Tom Scctt, Betty Jo Holccmb, and a pursar. The Singers presented Handel ' s " Mes- siah " as their pre-holiday gift to the student body. Scon thereafter students hied them- selves home for the holidays. Thirteen lucky people graduated in Janu- ary, and 24 new students enrolled the sec- ond semester as the reservists pondered their fate. Charline Harris, Cced editor, presented a corking good edition of the P W in Febru- ary and the same month Prof. Harrell ob- served the new comet " Whipple " at our local observatory. East met West in chapel when Dr. Bartak told of his experiences in Czechoslovakia with the Nazis, and a Chinese repre- sented the World Student Service Fund. Dr. Hutchins hit the campus to justify the ways of Chicago to man.

Word continued to trickle in that Millsaps students were still doing good work at graduate schools. Theta Nu Sigma, the new science honorary, was the latest to join our great number of campus honoraries. The WAAC ' s and the WAVE ' S came on the campus to try to lure the Dianas and Minervas away. The Lambda Chi ' s issued a student handbook in March and the campus map proved that Dot Raynham is still on the beam. Notes of interest include: The visit of the Tougaloo singers, the Chi Deltas ' meeting with Kit Kat, and Janice Trimble ' s returning from the Phi Mu party an hour late. Clara Porter was rushing around like mad, trying to keep BOBASHELA pictures to- gether and live through a Chi Omega initiation. There were signs of spring in the air besides Spring holidays: this included the inane love story of Herbert Craig and Ruth Gibbons. Fred Tatum left for medical school and students were wondering if he would return with classic puns about cadavers. The women were pleased to learn that the Navy had decided to come to Millsaps; eds sulked and hoped that it would be a chaplains ' school. Everybody knew that the Civil War had come to the American History class as Kinch Exum made his annual visit to see that there was no sabotage to Jefferson Davis,- time turned backward in its flight and Axtell and Exum fought from Gettysburg to Vicksburg. Founders ' Day came in April! High School day came and eds and co-eds became hosts and hostesses,- Dr. Fincher had beccme district president of the Pikes.
