BENJAMIN ERNEST MITCHELL It is with sincere gratitude that we dedicate this BOBASHELA to Dr. Benjamin Ernest Mitchell, professor of mathematics. Dr. Mitchell has given 35 years of service to making ours a Greater Millsaps, coming to the college in 1914. He received his A.B, from Scarritt- Morrisville College, his A.M. from Vanderbilt University, and his Ph.D. from Columbia University. During his career at Millsaps Dr. Mitchell has become a familiar and beloved person to everyone. To many of us, both students and faculty, he has become a genuine friend. His qualities are such that one sentence seems to sum them up admirably -- he is a Christian gentleman. So, for these things, as well as other intangibles, we respectfully dedicate this 1949 BOBASHELA to Dr. B. E. Mitchell. ■I " A y. m. V N •-.--...». £ c: ;:,- ' j. CVTA . - .. - f p.S.,T- LI II V M.

Never too busy to have a friendly word with every student, his geniality and kindness have made a lasting impression on our hearts. His. devotion to Millsaps is an inspiration for the entire student body. WILLIAM E. REICKEN, Ph.D. DEAN A member of Phi Beta Kappa, Dr. Reicken has a full-time sched- ule as Dean of the college and biology instructor; and he serves equally well in both capacities. His alert manner and devotion to Millsaps make him a well-liked and respected dean. I DEAN REICKEN DEAN STONE MRS. MARY H. B. STONE, M.A. DEAN OF WOMEN As advisor for the co-ed stu- dents, Mrs. Stone is never too busy to give advice and assistance with characteristic calmness and understanding. Also a professor in the English Department, she is admired by students as a truly fine person. ALBERT GODFREY SANDERS. A.M. LIBRARIAN RAY S. MUSCRAVE, PH.D. DEAN OF FRESHMEN N ELBERT S.

Already graduation had taken its toll of the ex-C,l. studded squad that had rolled up nine wins against three defeats in the two previous seasons. Youngsters just up from high school were filling in the gaps, thus weakening the Major ' s reserve power ' and all three defeats came during the second half when the superior second string strength of their opponents had worn down the Millsaps old hands. a i n D Jackson Members on the Major Squad — Kneeling — Cirlot, Woodward, Wade, Hathorn, Cates, Turner, Clements and Bell; Standing — Jim Jones, Jack Jones, Engle, Gardner, Robinson and Howard. DAVE MclNTOSH LIITL[ ALL- 194 -1 Already a legendary gridiron figure at Millsaps, Dave Mcintosh repeated in 1948 on his Little Ail-American laurels first gained in 1947. Fame first came to Dashing Dave in high school when his triple threat pyrotechnics sent the McComb Wildcats undefeated to a Big Eight championship and a post-season Toy Bowl victory in New Orleans. Mac rejected all lures to play big time football and enrolled as a ministerial student at Millsaps that at the time had no grid squad. Then came Coach Doby Bartling to Methodist Hill, fresh from piloting the Vanderbilt Commodores, and between them, they wrote glowing new pages in the Majors ' football history. €A.

MIKE ENCLE — Big Mike . . . six-feet- four and 205 pounds . . . equally adept at tackle, though used primarily as an end . . . known particularly for his great defensive play in breaking up the opponent ' s inter- ference. ARTHUR WHATLEY — The Whale . . . Doby ' s other big end, with 215 pounds packed on a six-feet-four frame ... a rugged defensive player ... he, too, alter- nates occasionally at tackle . . . shows versatility as first string guard with the Majors ' cage crew. GEORGE MADDOX — a preacher and a tackle . . . not given to turning the other cheek to an opposing lineman . . . brawn and brains in complete accord here . . . for stocky Mr. Maddox, with a perfect 3.0 grade average, is Mr. A at Millsaps . . . graduation carries him off to the seminary, but his achi evements shall linger long among the Majors. DAVIS — Fullback ENCLE— End Ifl f ik e WHATLEY — End MADDOX— Tackle RAY BELL — linebacker deluxe who plays short shift with enemy ball carriers . . . Old Man Bell had a field night at Choctawland, even while the Purple was losing, as he carried on his rough-and-tumble specialty . . . really a fine, friendly guy, off the gridiron ... all around athletic great . . . top hitter among the Major baseball crew . . . and a standout pitcher. JESS WADE — three times letterman end . . . speedy afoot, for downfieid tackling and pass receiving . . . has a kicking talent, too, that finds expression in a punting role . . . known, too, as an excellent blocker. LONNIE DECELL — Alonzo of Vicksburg just looks like a southpaw in his picture ... in reality a right handed pass pitcher . . . and a good one . . . versatility characterizes Lonnie . . . big enough to handle defensive quarterbacking chores, he can run as blocking back off the single wing or be the man-up-under in the " T " ... a very fine guy to have around. BILLY MANN — Rooster . . . just five-foot-seven from his cleated shoes to his crewcut topped pate . . . but a key man in the Majors attack, either as a ball handler or blocking back . . . it ' s not the size, but the ability that counts . . . and Rooster is okay. DECELL — Quarterback MANN — Quarterback HAMMOND— Center WILLIAMS — Guard CLEMENTS — End I f ih e JABOUR — Tackle DOUG HAMMOND — prototype of the Major of the future . . . started off as a tackle his freshman year last season . . . shifted to center this time around and caught on quickly . . . too much age and experience ahead of him these first two years . . . but the promise he shows now bodes naught but evil for future opponents in seasons to come. GEORGE WILLIAMS — a family man with two little ' uns . . . hefty George shows little baby sitting kindness towards the enemy . . . chunky Mr. Williams has already lettered once, and still has a season left . . . with graduation taking so many of the Majors away, his beefy five-feet-nine, two hundred pounds plus will be mighty welcome another year. HENRY CLEMENTS — " local boy makes good " describes Cl ements and his Mill- saps grid career ... a native Jacksonian, Henry has made his way in distinguished fashion with the Majors fine corps of ends . . . with a particularly likeable charac- teristic known as glue-fingered pass catching . . . had not a penalty nullified the play, his snagging a Mcintosh aerial in the Sewanee end zone would have added another triumph to the Majors season record. JOHN JABOUR — Johnny Jabo, the People ' s Choice . . . besides holding forth among the best of the Millsaps linemen, Jabo rates among the best liked personages On the campus . . . 220 pounds of runaway locomotive on offense ... a non- budging concrete chunk on defense . . . three times a letterman with the Majors, and still a year of eligibility left. vitfK.-?;. STRAIN— Guard BELL— Tailback PICOTT — End I |[ 1 HOWARD— Tackle E. B. STRAIN — E. B. looks every bit as wide as he is tall when tricked out in full war regalia ... so squatty the opposition might overlook him at first glance, his presence is quickly established by a vicious tackle or block seemingly coming from nowhere . . . made a fine name for himself in his first year with the Purple, and Coach Bartling looks cheerfully to next year when the little man will be back again for further duties. ED BELL — Ding Dong ... far famed as a Major basketeer . . . and as Missis- sippi ' s best young tennis player . . . Ding makes his mark in football, too, as a running specialist ... at his best on punt return with a tricky change of pace style . . . elusive with a darting, quick turning way of running when able to shake loose . . . but a savage driver when finally cornered. OTIS PICOTT — Deadeye ' s fame, along with Mcintosh, Maddox and others is firmly established on Methodist Hill . . . Pigott is by far the greatest of the all-around muscle men at Millsaps ... a first stringer in all sports . . . small for a football player, particularly an end, Otis makes up the difference in speed and terrific competitive spirit . . . his style of play brings a multitude of injuries to Pigott, but his unflagging spirit carries on despite the weaknesses of the flesh. HECTOR HOWARD — husky Hector never played any high school football . . . a handicap that held him back when he decided to have a crack at the Purple ' s varsity . . . but steady work in learning a lineman ' s duties have brought his quick development as a standout tackle, who has proven his value often for the Majors. BAILESS — Center BRITT — Halfback [[HP T " " p OREN BAILESS — when graduation took away the Ma- jors second squad Little All-American Center John Christ- mas, sophomore " Catfish " Bailess stepped into the breach like he owned it . . . and he did . . . Bailess was nothing ess than brilliant in his first season as a starter, both on offense and as a rugged linebacker, teaming with Ray Bell . . . having so capable a youngster at hand kept the OSS of Christmas from ever being too seriously felt. R. C. BRITT — an All-Big Eight great when Coach Doby was helping turn out championship squads at Meridian High, Britt has been a Godsend to the Majors who have benefited much from his extensive experience . . . played freshman ball at Ole Miss in 1941 in a dream backfield of Charlie Conerly, Doug Kenna, Buddy Bowen and Britt . . . R. C. masterminded the Major attack from his wingback slot ... as well as proving a sturdy de- fensive halfback. BILLY WINANS — The Canton Crusher ... a one-man gang on the right side of the Major line . . . for three years he has been a mainstay in making the Millsaps line the dangerous unit that it has proven to be for a lengthy list of opponents . . . little sorrow is evidenced among opponents that have been on the receiving end of his bone shattering tackles and blocks on hearing Billy is due to leave the Majors. CHARLES RAMSEY — just in this season from the Hinds Junior College Eagles, Charlie quickly established himself as a most capable guard, even though the Majors were blessed with much talent at that line spot . . . the greatest regret is that Ramsey will not be with the Purple for, say, about three more seasons.

After the Majors had taken two of their first three games, they ran headlong into an eight games losing streak. Two straight wins over the Merchant Marine Academy at Pass Christian righted the staggering fortunes of the Purple who then capped the season with the victory over the Chocs. Two 7-6 losses to the Choctaws were the toughest parts of a season that ended with five wins and nine defeats on the Majors ' record. Top hurlers for Millsaps were Ed Wiles (2-2) and Ray Bell (1-1 ), while Bell led the hitters with a neat .385 average. First season stars with the Purple were Wiles, Shortstop George Kurts, Second Baseman Charlie Wiggers and Outfielder-Pitcher Bell, while veterans Billy Johnson, Ralph Hays and Otis Pigott closed out their careers with the Millsaps nine in standout fashion.

R Some of the objectives of the girls ' intramural program at Millsaps are: to provide opportunity for fun and relaxation, to provide healthful exercise, to promote leisure educa- tion, to enrich social competence, and to develop group loyalties. A part of each person ' s leisure time should be devoted to wholesome physical activity. Intramurals pro- mote skills in various games and sporst intended for use in adult life. Intramurals establish group relation- ships in situations of vital interest to students. Proper organization and conduct of these activities facilitate the development of such desirable qualities as sportsmanship, coopera- tion, self-reliance, friendliness, etc. JEAN WYNNE, one of the Head Majorettes.

This year ' s participation in intra- mural sports has been organized on a different system from previous years. Formerly teams were com- posed of members of different social organizations; now, team members are comprised of all girls who are interested in sports and are eager to participate in them.
