" In its statement of the purpose of the college drafted in 1955-56, the Faculty and Board of Trustees stated that " Millsaps College has as its primary aim the development of men and women for rounded lives of useful service to their fel- low men, their country, and their God. The desired result is an intelligent, voluntary dedication to moral principles and a grow- ing social consciousness that will guide him into a rich, well-rounded Christian life with ready acceptance of responsibility to neigh- bor, state, and church. " The 1 987-88 school year was one of introspection where stu- dents examined both their own actions and the policies of the Administration. They took a critical look at Millsaps College to see if it was meeting its intended purpose. This annual is an attempt to piece together the facts and bring some understanding to the events of the past school year. In college there is a tension between the i ndividual and the community. The college should be committed to meeting the needs of the individual, but it should also be guid- ed by the concerns of the community. Stu- dents should be developed into indepen- dent, self-reliant human beings, yet they should also learn a sense of community.

In order to function effectively in this commu- nity, the student needs to see the relation- ship between what he learns and how he lives. He should look for the underlying meaning of what he learns and seek to apply that knowledge to the dilemnas of everyday life. Millsaps seeks to build community from the moment that the student arrives on campus, and much preparation goes into making the transition from high school to college a smooth one. It was announced in October that, based on the findings of a study group, changes in Rush were being studied. After students expressed dissatis- faction with the decision, President Har- mon agreed in November to postpone any decision on Rush. In February, the Task Force on the Freshman Experience was es- tablished in order to present a recommen- dation for a restructuring of the freshman experience. The desired goal is to bond freshmen to Millsaps first and then to other aspects of the school. It is important in any community to have open lines of communication between all its Right: Cheerleaders Anna Stroble and Eric Bufkin. Above: Survivors of the " Great Ezelle Fire. " members. On October 27, a " Call the Bluff student rally was held to protest the growing communication gap between ad- ministration and students. SBA President, Mark McCreery was quoted by the P W as saying, " It is time to say no to a manage- ment style with no concern for our goals and objectives. " The specific complaints dealt with the closing of the children ' s day care center and the rescheduling of Rush Week, but the underlying problem was that in which Continued on page 8 " Finding ethical solutions . . . the students were governed by the adminis- tration. The rally received coverage in the Jackson Daily News and the Clarion Led- ger, as well as being covered by local televi- sion. The Effective Communication Com- mittee was established to prevent a totally downward flow of communication from the administration to the students, and the All- College Council was established to give all interested people a chance to express them- selves. Both were designed in an effort to bring the students, faculty, and administra- tion together. Millsaps showed a committment to find- ing ethical solutions to community prob- lems when it held the Consultation on the Status of Minority Students. Its goal was to increase the number of minority students at Millsaps and enhance their experience — first by finding out why so few minority students were then present and then by finding solutions to the problem. A steering committee was established after the consul- tation to look into different areas of the situation. The consultation was made possi- ble by a grant from The Board of Higher Education and the Ministry of the United Methodist Church. One event which recognized the impor- tance of what goes on outside the classroom was the Alcohol Awareness Week held after the return from Fall Break. It was intended to promote alcohol education, de- cision making skills, and positive peer influ- ence. The week served as the highlight of a year-round emphasis on alcohol education by Millsaps and the importance it places on the individuals ' decisions of use or non-use. Truly educated people must gain per- spective by seeing themselves in relation to others. The organization known as the Cross Cultural Connection attempted to provide a sense of belonging for interna- tional and minority students by offering a forum for the exchange of cultural ideas, knowledge and values. CCC was responsi- ble for sponsoring such things as a Friday Forum entitled " Slavery and Freedom: Comparing the United States with South Africa " and the visit of Arun Gandhi. An initial sign-up list of fifty-six people showed how Millsaps students want to learn outside the classroom. Continued on page 11 Right: Study and conversation in the Bowl.

The sympo- sium featured a range of speakers including Dr. Ronald Sider who spoke on " Evangeli- cal Theory of Public Policy; " Reverend William Fore who spoke on " The Replace- ment of the Modern Day Value System; " and Reverend Donald Wildmon whose top- ic was " People Change, Values Don ' t. " In developing a sense of community at Millsaps, teachers play a vital role. While having command of the material which they teach, the Millsaps faculty also had an enthusiasm about the abilities of their stu- dents and their potential for understanding ideas. The faculty also steps-out into the intellectual community outside Millsaps. In 1 987 one teacher in particular showed com- mand of his field of history by writing a book entitled, The End of the Conservative Era. Dr. Robert McElvaine, a professor here since 1973, looked at popular movies, music and television to predict a swing back to liberalism. The broader social community also played an important role at Millsaps this past year. The Millsaps Tower was the gift of McCarty Farms in honor of the com- pany ' s founder and chairman, H.F. McCarty, Jr., his wife and their children. President Harmon offered the hope that " the essential idea of Millsaps College and the inspiration which Continued on page 1 2 El i II ■ 4 ' $ 11 11 Top left: Eric Bufkin and the art of tye dye.

The Franklin W. Olin Hall of Science was dedicated during Founder ' s Day cele- bration on February 13, 1988. Millsaps competed against 93 other colleges and uni- versities to be the first college in Mississippi to receive a grant from the Olin Founda- tion. The $5.5 million grant was evidence of Millsaps ' high degree of academic excel- lence. The building makes available sophis- ticated equipment for undergraduate use. It is possible to list many different pur- poses for a liberal arts education. Some have said that education is something that is left when we have forgotten what we learned. It is frequently said in regard to the classical education of British universities that " the truly educated person should feel at home in the world anywhere in the world. " In a book entitled. The Undergrad- uate Experience in America, Ernest Boyer concludes that " the aim of the undergrad- uate experience is not only to prepare the young for productive careers, but also to enable them to live lives of dignity and pur- pose; not only to generate new knowledge, but to channel that knowledge to humane ends; not merely to study government, but to help shape a citizenry that can promote the public good.

It was funded by a $5.5 million grant by the Franklin M. Olin Foundation which is headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The interesting thing is that the Olin Founda- tion gives most of its grants to schools in the Midwest and Northeast; Millsaps is one of the two Southern Schools that las been awarded a grant. When the Olin Foundation ? unds something like a science Duilding, they insist that the Duilding be furnished with new jquipment. The new equipment was founded by a grant from :he National Science Founda- ion and money from the school, rhe new equipment cost a total )f $400,000 and includes the most advanced technology available to any college or uni- versity. Dr. Allen Bishop asserts that all of the hardware and software " are on the cutting edge of technology. " The list of chemistry equipment, which sounds like it is straight out of Star Wars, includes a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spec- trometer, a Fourier Transform which identifies organic com- pounds, an Atomic Absolution Spectrophotometer which ana- lyzes metal ions in solutions, a graphite furnace, and fourteen new computer terminals to name just a few. The new equip- ment for the Biology Depart- ment includes an electron mi- croscope which has a magnifi- cation capability of 200, 000X, an Environmental Chamber, equipment which separates genes, physiology equipment which is more advanced than that of the University Medical Center, and much, much more. The Olin Building itself is well-thought-out and well built. In contrast to what usually hap- pens to other colleges and uni- versities, the Biology and Chemistry faculty at Millsaps were allowed a great deal of in- put in the design and construc- tion of the building. All of the lecture rooms are very comfort- able and quite luxurious, and the laboratories are top-notch in design and function. The fac- ulty states that the building is a " great deal " in terms of usabi- lity, space, and opportunities for research. Dr. Allen Bishop said that the Olin Building is " the most advanced undergrad- uate science facility in the na- tion, and it ' s exciting to be able to do all the things we wanted to do, whereas in the past, all we could do was wave our hands and talk about it. " It is unfortu- nate, however, that even with all this wonderful equipment, the professors cannot conduct any appreciable amount of re- search because they are so en- cumbered by the excessive number of teaching hours the administration requires them to teach.

This attitude is at the heart of the Millsaps ' liberal arts education, a school of thought which balances the importance of one ' s scholarship with one ' s social growth. It is no surprise, then, that the faculty and the students of Millsaps actively question established ideas both in and out of the classroom. Currently, an example of this spirit is seen in the formation of the " Consultation on the Status of Minority Students at Mill- saps, " a committee which responded to the inquires presented by various groups in 1987 concerning the treatment of Millsaps ' minorities. The Consultation that was formed attempted to deal with many prob- lems which face minorities daily, such as alienation, a lack of support structures, and the seemingly weak recruitment procedures for minorities. The Consultation, which met on October 9 and 10, 1987, was direct- ed by the distinguished United Methodist Church leader Reverend Jack Loflin. It was attended by one hundred and sixteen representatives of various constituencies of the college: the six academic divisions. Board of Trustees, Executive Committee of the college, the Millsaps Alumni Associ- ation, the Boards of Higher Education of the two United Methodist Conferences in Mississippi, and members of campus orga- nizations. The Millsaps ' Chaplain Don For- tenberry, the overall director of the Consul- " The silver trump of freedom had roused my soul to eternal wakefulness. Freedom now appeared, to disappear no more forever. It was heard in every sound, and seen in every thing. It was ever present to torment me in a sense of my wretched condition. I saw nothing without seeing it, I heard nothing without hearing it, and felt nothing without feeling it. It looked from every star, it smiled in every calm, breathed in every wind and moved in every storm. " — Frederick Douglass Left: Kim Bruce, Jimmy Carr, and Chuwanda Thigpin discuss important issues in a small group discussion of the Consultation. Above: Rev. Jack Loflin guides the group by letting them know what their goals for the day should be. tation, states the scope and purpose of the group: " To me, the central purpose of this organization is to increase the number of minority students and to effectively mini- mize the racial and ethnic differences that limit full participation in the college. " At the meeting, the various comments which were submitted revealed that people at Millsaps are divided by race just as peo- ple are elsewhere. Clearly, a rift that sepa- rates Millsaps, Mississippi, and the United States is based upon the color of one ' s skin. However, the self-worth of an individual should be emphasized instead of irrational- ly concentrating on the race to which one belongs. Many at Millsaps question the ar- tificial barriers drawn by race and ask just exactly why such barriers exist. In addition to simply questioning these problems, members of the Consultation have set im- mediate and long-range goals to destroy these barriers. Unmistakenly, any solution which was proposed at the Consultation must occur through a change in attitude and not only in reformed policy. Although policies of this committee, the Admissions Department, or the Administration itself may be written to help minorities, they will face opposition unless a change of heart occurs first. This involves a partnership between the policy- makers themselves and the Millsaps ' popu- lation: if we are to become a community, one cannot override the other. Junior Edie Hall emphasizes the importance of continu- ing this open attitude: " Even though the Consultation is over, we must stay aware of this problem to make any changes for the future. We can work to immediate goals to plant the seeds of the long-range goals. Let ' s not let this issue die. " Presently, the task groups of the Consul- tation ' s Steering Committee work to change existing problems on minority stu- dents. The members of the Consultation, along with others on campus, have an op- portunity to make a difference for the fu- ture. Just as the treatment of minorities was questioned in the past, today students can question their own attitudes to see if they are willing to risk a change. 19 Dr. Baba sits with freshman Shanti Am- biavagar at the Cross- Cultural Connection potluck dinner held during the fall semes- ter.

The professors take time from their massive amounts of pa- perwork, grading and preparation for upcoming classes in order to assist the students. This type of direct assistance cannot be found in any of the larger state schools or even in those " elitist ' schools. In those types of places, one must work with a teaching assistant, or worse, fend for oneself. However, at Millsaps, teach- er-student relations are much warmer, friendlier and helpful. Most professors are more than willing to provide any as- sistance the student requires in order to smooth the way for the pupil ' s quest for knowledge. The professors usually know all their students ' names, and in time, learn each of their students ' strengths and weak- nesses and adjust to them accordingly. This type of flexibility is rare at any campus, yet it is here on our campus and flourishing. Although Millsaps has been receiving a large amount of national at- tention, it has not turned into an aca- demic leviathan in which the student be- comes relegated to a mere number or ignored for purposes of research in order to gain further prestige. A visiting stu- dent once remarked upon how well pro- fessors knew their students by name and how often the professors would stop and actually converse with their pupils. It was amazing to the visitor who happened to attend a big-name school in the North that the professors did not treat their students in a condescending manner- .What was more perplexing to the stu- dent was that the professor actually no- ticed the absence of a student and in- quired into the reason of his absence . In the visiting student ' s school, the teachers " did not seem to care. " Milsaps ' good teacher- student relations are not due solely to a low teacher-student ratio because there are many schools that of- fer comparable ratios but still do not pro- vide the necessary contact between the teacher and the pupil. The good relations are due mostly to the type of attitude that the Millsaps Community produces. This attitude is one of sharing, consider- ation, and the pursuit of knowledge. Of course, this attitude is fueled mostly by the professors because they understand that this is the best environment for learning. Most students also understand that this is the best way to learn and reciprocate the professors ' openess by utilizing the various opportunities for di- rect contact with their educators. Carol Woods, a transfer student from Baylor, feels that the faculty-student re- lationship here at Millsaps as compared to that of Baylor is one of more personal relationships and added attention. " . . . Because the classes are smaller here, the interaction between faculty and student is more one-on-one such that a better, stronger relationship can be estab- lished. " Professor Bavender. a perfect example of a teacher who will go out of his way to help a student, expresses our strong student-faculty relationship as a " tradition here at Millsaps " . Professor Bavender goes on to say that one of our basic traditions is a concept known as " the total student. " The teachers at Millsaps really care about the student in a total sense and this feeling is not just a one-sided one; the student gets to know the teacher in the same personal sense. This type of teacher accessibility is im- portant to us as students, because it is vital to our studies and to our experience here at Millsaps. 21 THE TOP TEN It ' s Friday . . . It ' s Your Last Class . . . Slowly, the minute hand churns toward the sound of the bell, and at last the indus- trious Millsaps student is free! As he flees from his classroom with suitcase in hand, the average pedestrian should be cautioned not to get in his way, for it may prove to be fatal. The small number of weekend esca- pees escalates into a large mass which de- scends from the dorm stairwells to " jump the iron gate. " Those who opt to brave a weekend of desolation may have difficulty entertaining themselves. Luckily, a small circle of Mill- saps experts were glad to make suggestions of what to do after the masses have packed up and left. Here are our suggestions: 1. Call home and rationalize your need for more money. 2. Attempt to enter the movie theatre for a cut rate by showing the employee your Millsaps I.D. 3. Answer the lobby phones which usually go unanswered. 4. Experience a panoramic view of Millsaps from the belltower. 5. Assemble your remaining neighbors and mercilessly terrorize your R.A. 6. Calculate your social deviance task. 7. Re-organize your Domino ' s Pizza cou- pons. 8. Acknowledge those clothes that have been multiplying in a corner of your closet. 9. Take a road trip to the state border. 10. Experience what being a " dorm rat " is like. Some other suggestions made were: — Spend an entire role of quarters on pool games at C.S. ' s. - Plot a secret mission. — Sit in the Millsaps- Wilson Library wish- ing that you had escaped for the weekend. - SLEEP! 22 Left: Remnants of the mass exodus.

Plays i »n» 5 ki ti Tk r ■ " Changing Values In America 55 The topic for this year ' s Student Sympo- sium, " Changing Values in America, " proved to be a very intriguing and informative pro- gram. Sponsored by the Studeny Body Associ- ation, the two-day forum featured such well- known speakers as Dr. Ronald Sider, Reverend William Fore, and Reverend Donald Wildmon, a native of Tupelo, Mississippi and a graduate of Millsaps. Each of the speakers added a new dimension to the American value system as they projected their own views and experiences into the forum. The first speaker, Dr. Ronald Sider, is a profes- sor of Theology at Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary and is the author of fifteen books, the most recent of which is What Does It Mean to Be Pro-Life? His speech, entitled " Evangelical Theology of Public Policy " raised many ques- tions concerning social justice. Sider promoted the idea that there is a need for a new vision in today ' s society; an immediate solution to such a problem is to implement knowledge of the Bi- ble into today ' s society in public policy. Ac- knowledging that it is impossible to separate public life from ethical values, Sider empha- sized the idea of shaping law with Scriptures. The second speaker, Reverend William Fore, the Chief Executive Officer of the Communi- cation Commission of the Churches of Christ, spoke on the " Replacement of Modern Day Value System. " The central issue to him was how religion affects the mass media. Fore pre- sented the view that television, as one of the most powerful institutions in history, was com- peting with religion for our very souls. Further- more, the final speaker, Reverend Donald Wildmon, Executive Director of the American Family Association, entertained the topic of " People Change, Values Don ' t. " Wildmon concentrated on two value systems, the secular and the Christian. He portrayed Christianity as the superior system because it has a point of reference, Christ, while the secular system lacks such a reference. According to Wildmon, a value-free society is a valueless one and Christianity represents the only reliable value system. Clearly, the symposium speakers fea- tured varying religious and political perspec- tives on the American value system. This year ' s Student Symposium was very stimulating as it challenged our personal value system and forced us to see how America is changing its values. Now, we are more aware of what an effect television has on us or just how powerful public policy can be. It is up to each of us to formulate our own opinions on these per- ceptions and to decide how to apply this infor- mation to our lives. As the audience walked away feeling angry, perplexed, or concerned, the true purpose of the symposium was fulfilled in an educational experience that is inherent in the liberal arts tradition. : Above: The Forum on values brought together Fore, Wild- mon, Professor McElvaine of the History department at Millsaps and Father Manning, a local Catholic priest.

The idea being to invite the entire campus: greeks, independents, faculty, and whom- ever, for a fun-filled weekend complete with volleyball, tug o ' war, bands, and, oh yes, food right here at Millsaps. The Valley Food Service did a super job of catering a meal to the student body on that Saturday afternoon on Fraternity Row. The display was splendid: fruit, cheese, croissants, etc. The guys played tug ' o war with the losers landing in a gigantic mud pit. The girls oohed and ahhed over the amount of mus- cles (or lack of them) displayed. Volleyball was also a tremendous success with only nightfall and the coming of the band ending the suspenseful games. Girls played this game too, and it was rumored that Betsy Flowers had a serve to beat anyones. The Valley Food boys had quite a team as well; however, they did not sport the attire that William Wadsworth ' s team did. After Vol- leyball the campus returned to its respec- tive dorms to get cleaned up for the party that night. Originally, the band was sched- uled for the bowl, but the threat of rain moved the party to none other than the Pi Kappa Alpha house. This was sure to be a swingin ' time. So cologne was splashed on, and whatever else to attract that special person, and off everyone trucked to the Pi Kappa Alpha house. Over all the party was good. People danced, laughed, and occas- sionally sang. But much to everyone ' s dis- may, security showed up in full force to chaperone the party. Vice-President of the S.B.A. David Laird went running out to save the day but was unsuccessful. Some- one had leaked to campus security that there might be several delinquent juveniles drinking alcoholic beverages. Well, much to everyone ' s surprise, there did turn out to be a few illicit beverages being consumed by students. Security saw to it that these students ' I.D. ' s were impounded, and a $15.00 fine slapped upon them. The party ended. With puppy-dog faces, the Millsaps students said goodnight to one another and walked wearily home. Their hopes and dreams were shattered because it was only 12:30 and they had not had a chance to make their move. Overall, the weekend was a success. Only a few minor incidents led some to be disap- pointed. Keep those parties rolling S.B.A. ! . - H • » N Top Left: Jason Walenta in the mud.

Not only were the par- ties well-attended and enjoyed, but they also served as a well-deserved finale to the school year. The activities which lasted from Wednes- day, April 1 3th to Saturday, April 1 6th, provided a comfortable way for Millsaps students to meet prospective students. Undoubtably, Major Mad- ness provided a much-needed outlet for students about to enter final exams or Seniors who had just completed comprehensive exams. The list of activities ranged from the first an- nual Talent Show on Wednesday to a party and band in the Bowl on Saturday. Sponsored by the SBA Spirit Committee, the Talent Show packed the Recital Hall and showcased acts such as " A Day in the Life of Stupid Affairs " , by the Stu- dent Affairs Office; the song " I Want a Girl " by " The Four Saps " ; and a medley arrangement by Price Williams. Thursday ' s and Friday ' s activi- ties included lunch, virgin margaritas, and music in the Bowl. Also on Friday, the Millsaps Players presented their final play of the year, " Ring Round the Moon. " A local band, Jett Screamer, was featured at the Grove Apartments in a party that night. Saturday ' s activities lasted from morning until midnight. First, Panhellenic hosted a tea in the Olin Building for prospective Millsaps girls and campus Independents. This was fol- lowed by a day-long volleyball tournament on frat row which was accompanied by a jazz blues band and an outdoor shish-ka-bob dinner. Major Madness ' last party on Saturday presented the band Ben Freed and IBM in the Bowl. Supported by SBA, Panhellenic, and IFC, Major Madness proved to be a great success again this year. The variety of activities and par- ties provided a great atmosphere for mixing the visiting high school students with Millsaps stu- dents. Clearly, this four-day-long party is quickly becoming a popular tradition at Millsaps. 36 Susan Boone, Lisa Murphy and friends watch the volley- ball tournament.

Millsaps Players Present " Our Town " The sixty-fourth season of the Millsaps Players began with the production of " Our Town. " This classic play, written by Thorn- ton Wilder, enjoyed a popular four-day run in the Christian Center. The thirty-four member cast, directed by Lance Goss, wore early twentieth century costumes as they portrayed their characters. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, " Our Town " depicts the life of a New Hampshire village with its unique blend of humor, beauty, and pathos. The play is set against the background of centuries of time, social history and religious ideas. The Stage Man- ager gives an overview of the drama as he says: " This is the way we were in our grow- ing-up and in our marrying and in our doc- toring and in our living and in our dying. " Set in 1901, the dramatic situation is in Grover ' s Corners where the Gibbses and the Webbs are neighbors. During their childhood. George Gibbs and Emily Webb become close playmates. As they grow older, however, their relationship evolves into a more romantic one. Over an ice- cream soda, George proposes to Emily. Their happiness is short-lived, unfortunate- ly, because Emily dies suddenly thereafter. In a very moving scene, the peace and quiet of death is portrayed in a way that cannot be fully understood by the living. Below: Si Cromwell (Thomas Webb) and Howie Newsome (Christopher Donovan) Talk on the street with Constable Warren (Joe Branton). Right: Rebecca Gibbs (An- gela Lazzarus), George Gibbs (Richard Read), Mrs. Gibbs (Kim Peil), and Dr. Gibbs (Seth Holliday) pose for a family portrait. Now you know: that what it was to be alive. To move about in a cloud of ignorance; to go up and down trampling on the feelings of those --of those about you. To spend and waste time as though you had a million years. To be always at the mercy of one self-centered passion, or another. . . . Ignorance and blindness! IS U-- fT Hi w jj ■Yy ; 1 iTjfr JSm ■ . flV lclMw |j|p JPfe y jjyp " rj flpV I H -»» .

" — Laura Reynolds " Tea and Sympathy " , the second perfor- mance of the season, was another great suc- cess for the Players. This love story written by Robert Anderson was performed No- vember 17th through the 21st. A special addition to this play was the appealing set designed by Wright McFarland as a Senior Project in Theatre. This particular set, which seated the audience on the stage with the actors, made this intimate and enter- taining production even more enthralling. " Tea and Sympathy ' s " cast of ten acted well in a play which covers issues and ques- tions that are relevant today. Set in Eng- land in 1953, the play deals with the search for one ' s identity. " Tea and Sympathy " , which played on Broadway for two years, is reviewed by critics as one which " can sim- ply and briefly be described as a triumph. " The drama of the play takes place in an English boy ' s school dormitory in 1956. Tom Lee is a forlorn boy who is hazed by his classmates because he has played girl ' s parts in amateur theatricals. Their ridicule intensifies to the point of persecution. De- termined to prove his manliness, the youth goes out for a night on the town with the neighborhood tramp. To Tom ' s dismay, this proves to be his downfall for he only runs home from his date. At school, he is now completely shunned as one who is truly worthless. Only the headmaster ' s wife, beautiful and understanding, offers Tom sympathy in a delicate final scene. 41 Shakespeare ' s " The Tempest " " O brave new world that has such people in ' t. " — Prospero " The Tempest " , the Player ' s third play, was produced February 25th through the 28th. Directed by Lance Goss, this drama used a cast of twenty-three to recreate this well-known Shakespearean play. The Mill- saps Players did a fine job in executing this romantic fantasy. Considered by many scholars to be Shakespeare ' s final play, " The Tempest " is a work of fantasy and courtly romance. Its characters include a wise old magician, his attractive, naive daughter, a gallant young prince and a scheming brother. This classic play contains elements of a fairy tale in which ancient wrongs are righted and true lovers live happily ever after. Also present are elements of a poetic atmosphere and allegory. No other of Shakespeare ' s drama reveals so much of the author ' s reflection of life itself. The plot begins at sea with a storm and ends on a note of serenity and joy. Prospero, the banished Duke of Milan, and his daugh- ter Miranda live on an island with a group of spirits and nymphs. During a violent tempest at sea, a ship wrecks on their is- land. The occupants of the ship include the King of Naples, his son Ferdinand and the usurping Duke of Milan, Prospero ' s broth- er. The romance and mystery of the drama concerns the courtship of Miranda and Fer- dinand and Prospero ' s efforts to regain his noble title. 4: Prospero com- forts Miranda, his daughter, in the stillness of nature.

U Ring Round the Moon " a Comedy " I fall in love as a matter of routine. But not ludicrously like my brother. " — Hugo The 1 987-88 Millsaps Players season ended with the com- edy, " Ring Round the Moon. " The play was given April 1 3th through the 17th. This light, humorous production was a pleasant conclusion to a highly successful year for the Play- ers. Christopher Fry ' s adaptation of this Jean Anouilh play, " Ring Round the Moon, " has been an outstanding triumph both in England and in New York. The London Times rates it as " an enchanting little fairy tale of laughing . . . grace, its sentiment masked by cool, brittle, eloquent mockery. " This comedy is a delight as it reflects on the moods of wistful romance, satire and fantasy . The plot develops around the author ' s ideas about love. A fable about twin brothers is invented to illustrate the plot. Frederic, shy and sensitive, and Hugo, heartless and aggres- sive, are the main characters who direct the action. Frederic is in love with a hussy who is in love with Hugo. To save Frederic from an unhappy marriage, Hugo tries to distract him by bringing to a ball a beautiful dancer. The dancer, who becomes the triumph of the occasion, is a susceptible maiden in her own right. She not only breaks up all the cynical romances around her, but loses her own heart as well.

Directed by the SBA Spirit Committee ' s co-chairs Alicia Clifton and Andy Harper, this extravan- ganza of entertainment was certainly en- joyed by all. The show lasted for hours and packed the Recital Hall as administration, faculty, staff and students participated in this fun-for-all. The talent show ' s program showcased acts that displayed the diversity and crazi- ness of the Millsaps Student Body. For ex- ample, the singers included Senior Misty Skelton ' s piece " The Man I Love " and the male quartet, The Four Saps, who sang " I Want a Girl " . Many other participants sang pieces that ranged from medlies to duets to solos. Not only did the audience enjoy such singing, but it also delighted in skits and other performances. Sam and Tic executed " A Bluegrass Dissertation " , for instance. Freshman Price Williams, an ac- complished pianist, played a medley that she arranged. Faculty also joined in the fun and led many acts. Dr. " J.R. " Sallis, pro- fessor of history, performed a comic routine complete with a plaid suit, plastic nose and wig. One of the most talked about and pop- ular acts was by the Student Affairs Office. Their skit, " A Day in the Life of Stupid Affairs " , was truly exemplary of the Mill- saps Community in which faculty and stu- dents work and relax together. The talent show ' s motto: " To laugh at oneself is a gift to all " was certainly experienced in those few hours in the Recital Hall. The talent show not only served as a promising beginning to Major Madness but also was a great way to bring the Millsaps Community together. The " community " spirit of the College is often talked about, and sometimes its existence is even ques- tioned, but here for one night, the adminis- tration, faculty, staff and students joined together for hours of fun to start a four-day party. Hopefully, this type of activity will be indicative of the community spirit which can exist at Millsaps. %t m $i 46 Jane Cooper per- forms in the " Stupid Af- fairs " skit.

The Millsaps College Republi- cans is an organization devoted to- wards the cultivation and promotion of leadership abilities in its mem- bers and the Millsaps campus. Not only is participation in the political system sought by our organization, but the correct understanding of how our system works, what makes it succeed and how it sometimes fails (here finding use for those " left-field " policies) is also seen as vital in following our forefathers dreams to establish a politically knowledgeable public. 87 88 .The Many Facets of Millsaps 89 . . 1 . . - V MIVAL PRESERVER KUOAK TMV iUbJ 1 tt-l l 1 1 - . • IV 1 8A KODAK SOS 3 m M IS I 4 1L H itfM- H i Li KODAK SAFETY FILM bUbJ KODAK SAFETY Hi M SOS3 • i KODAK SAFETY FILM 5063 Ak b » HV Mil AKA Alpha Kappa Alpha Colors: Salmon Pink, Apple Green Motto: By Merit and Culture National Founding: Jan. 15. 1908 Local Founding: Feb- ruary 1977 Alpha Kappa Alpha has had a fun-filled year of service!

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity has often boasted about its major accomplishments with the Boys Scouts of America as well as the Teen Father ' s Program. On the lo- cal level, the Omicron Gamma Chapter felt both a human and compassionate desire to help raise money for Debra Smith, a fellow student at Jackson State Universi- ty who was in desperate need of a delicate liver transplant. Members of the chapter found great pleasure in helping someone else who was in dire need. This year, the chapter spon- sored its first participant in the Al- pha Phi Alpha State Miss Black and Gold Contest. Melissa McLean represented the chapter well. Even though she did not come out on top. the chapter still consid- ers her a w inner and found the ex- perience worthwhile. Following the competition, the chapter jumped right into its only pledge class of the year. While it was a lengthy and tiresome process, the fraternity was pleased to welcome Casey Ferrell into the realm of the first nationally founded Black Fra- ternity. Left: Hey! Good looking!

In October the chapter held their annual Fall Party. The theme was " A French Quarter Fest. " The Pledge class also held a Christmas Party for the children of the chap- ter ' s alumnae. Tri Delta partici- pated in fall intramurals, soccer, volleyball, and basketball, receiv- ing the first place trophy in basket- ball. To end the fall semester the chapter held Sleighbell Day to benefit their national philanthro- py, the Children ' s Cancer Fund. To begin the Spring semester, the second annual Moonlight Mas- querade Formal was held. At this time Barry Beck, Sam Field, and Mike Morlan were named Delta Gents. In March another party was held for the alumnae ' s chil- dren, an Easter Egg Hunt. The chapter ' s major project for the spring semester was the formation of a Tri Delta SADD Chapter. The chapter was started with a campus wide presentation in March. The project will have its major kick-off next year with an outreach into the Jackson Community through the school systems. Finally there was a brunch held in honor of the Senior member of the sorority. The Gam- ma Zeta chapter ended the school year with anticipation of Tri Del- ta ' s 100th anniversary in Novem- ber of 1988. Chorus Line Encore . . . " Cult club " . . .

The arrival of thirty-five wonderful pledges in the fall was only a part of the many changes seen in Chi Omega. The chapter not only changed faces with new officers and pledges, but the lodge itself acquired a new appearance with many improvements and addi- tions, including the scholarship trophy both semesters! Activities included record breaking blood drives for the Mis- sissippi Blood Services both semes- ters, as well as collecting food dur- ing Thanksgiving for a local wom- en ' s shelter. Several Chi Omegas volunteered their time at the Methodist Rehabilitation Center for children, and many helped work for the Jerry Lewis telethon. Chi Omega also maintained their position as one of the top callers in the student telephone campaign. Parties for the year included the annual Owlman in the fall, and the addition of the new Owlmen: Bubba C. Tim Gates, Barry G„ Greg S., Tommy S., and Judd T.

The Model Initiation team showed the best initiation ever seen at the National Conven- tion. Bid Day was another coup for the Southern Gentlemen as 24 of 26 bids were accepted. With the fine leadership of David Coffey, the national undergraduate chair- man; Mark Loughman, the presi- dent; and Grant Fox, the pledge trainer; KA was able to demon- strate itself not only as a leader on campus but also on the national level, characterized by a travelling evaluator advisor as a chapter that " reloads, not rebuilds. " Brotherhood rallies, Mr. Wells ' cookouts, and the Sweethearts ' functions for the entire year helped maintain and strengthen the ca- maraderie among us. The pledge program, a through product of Brother Fox ' s ingenuity, was a new dimension to Alpha Mu that helped to solidify an already supe- rior group of freshmen. Intramur- als have always been well partici- pated in by Alpha Mu and 1988 was not exception as KA took the Intramural championship trophy. But while athletics are always fun as well as important, scholarship always has top priority at KA as we took the scholarship trophy with the highest G.P.A. in recent history. But all work is no fun and the KAs have as much or more fun than anyone. No Theme parties. Black and White, Initiation, Toga, Valentine, and of course. Old South — the best party of the year - were among the many social events that put the fun back into college. With Brother Ponder, Pritchard, and Wall to lead us into 1988-89, KA will once again be among the top on campus and in the nation.

On July 6 at the 47th National Kappa Delta convention in New Orleans, we received the Council Award. It is given every two years to the top KD chapter in the nation. We were very excited and proud of this hon- or. In October, a reception was held here at Millsaps in honor of our chapter. National President Corre Anding Stegall and Nation- al Secretary Dianne Leferney McDowell were on hand to present us with our award, an engraved sil- ver punch bowl. Several alumnae, students, and members of the ad- ministration were also there. On Bid Day, August 29, we wel- comed thirty-five new, wonderful pledges into our home. They all came from different places and backgrounds, but each had some- thing special to offer. With lots of hard work and enthusiasm, they have been a tremendous asset to our chapter and also to the cam- pus. Like other members, they be- came involved in Student Senate, Millsaps Singers, various organi- zations, and much more. It has truly been an exciting and eventful year for Mu chapter with Big Sis Lil Sis, " Jungle Love " Fall Party, and White Rose Week, which was concluded by initiation. KD Shamrock Project, which raises money to help prevent child abuse, was a huge success. Other fun activities were White Rose Formal, an Easter Egg Hunt for children of alumnae, and our Pro- ject Excellence retreat " Hawaiian Style. " Council Award! We ' re 1 in the nation!! . . .

Our brothers have participated in numerous commu- nity projects that have benefited a great many people. From skating parties with the children of the Methodist Children ' s Home to a Golf-a-thon to aid the Kidney Foundation, we have attempted to be of service to as many people as possible. But not to be outdone in the social realm, our parties of the last year have been the envy of the campus with our Founder ' s Day in New Orleans and our three- day South Seas celebration. Our mem- bers also made a journey to the University of Florida where they placed second in the Regional Kappa Sigma Softball Tourna- ment. By winning the Millsaps Telephone Campaign, we showed our commitment to the campus. If next year is as fun and productive as the last, then our reputation will be outstanding once again.

Theta Eta Chapter, with 109 men, has grown over the years to become one of the strongest Lambda Chi Chapters in the nation. This past year the chapter won three nation- al fraternity awards: the Bruce Hunter-Mclntosh Award for Chapter Excellence, the Campus Involvement -Outstanding Achievement Award and the To- zier- Brown Public Affairs Project Award. Millsaps Lambda Chis are ac- tive both on campus and in the Jackson community. Lambda Chis participate in varsity and intramu- ral sports, student government, honoraries, publications, teaching assistantships and campus com- mittees. This involvement is from president of ODK to yearbook edi- tor. Its strong involvement on cam- pus places the men of Lambda Chi in the center of campus life. Lamb- da Chis involvement in the com- munity ranges from hosting an Easter egg hunt at a local orphan- age to implementing a food drive which raised over 24,000 pounds of food for the needy in Mississippi. Thus Lambda Chi Alpha ' s in- volvement and impact stretches beyond the Millsaps campus into the Jackson community where their presence is also well known and highly respected. Along with campus and commu- nity involvement the chapter pro- motes brotherhood, individuality, and schoalrship. Lambda Chis at Millsaps are known for their unity amongst diversity — with mem- bers from lands as distant as France to as close as Louisiana. Lambda Chi Alpha provides the atmosphere for one to become a socially well-rounded individual. Theta Eta ' s quest for scholarship places it with one of the highest GPA ' s of all the Lambda Chi chapters in the nation. Scholastic achievement varies from the presi- dent of the chemistry honorary to participants in the Ford Fellow- ship program. Lambda Chis are constantly striving to attain their highest potential. But along with hard work comes hard play, and that is another thing that the Lambda Chis at Millsaps are known for doing. Par- ties such as " Mount Olympus, " " Crescent Ball, " " Winter Fest, " " Throw Down II, " and many oth- ers kept the Lambda Chi house rocking throughout the year. There is also an annual canoe trip and crawfish boil that allows one to escape from the rigors of aca- demic life. Sorority swaps at the first of the year introduce the men of Lambda Chi Alpha to the wom- en of Millsaps sororities. The complete college experience is Lambda Chi Alpha. It ' s heritage is built on human vision, under- standing, idealism and honest friendship. Left: Brothers take time out for a picture at the Phi Mu formal.

The dedi- cation of our new house was a great way to begin the year. Alpha Iota had an excellent rush with 35 great new pledges. Under the good leadership of president Don Mos- ley, we received a Chapter Excel- lence award from National. Com- munity service projects included: Operation Shoestring to renovate community buildings and helping to organize the March of Dimes Biathalon. During football season, we came in second in the Home- coming float contest. The spring began with our chap- ter hosting the Delta Regional Convention for all Pike chapters in the South. Other spring successes were winning first place in our di- vision for the school Telephone Campaign and being awarded the intramural soccer trophy. At Cot- tonball, we elected six new Little Sisters: Cory, Eileen, Amy, Janet, Susan, and Michelle — and Joanie was chosen our new Dreamgirl. This year we also held some in- credible parties. Some of these were our annual pilgrimage to the Delta Bluesfest, a great Old North, the first annual Ed head party, the Green Eggs Ham KA PKA party, and we closed out the year with Pike ' s Peak Week.

We also threw four very suc- cessful and entertaining theme swaps with the sororities. Our sec- ond annual hayride in Ackerman, Ms. proved to be not only a great party but also a well-deserved re- treat for all involved. The Colony ' s pledge class, un- der the direction and guidance of Sam Field, solicited monies and donations for the A.R.K. program of the Mississippi Children ' s Home Society Association. The A.R.K. is an alcohol drug reha- bilitation program for youths. This year our Colony held its first Paddy Murphy, an annual party of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity nationwide. This gave us the chance to use our prized ac- quisition, a black 1966 Cadillac hearse. All in all. the 1987-1988 year proved to be an exciting and pro- gressive one for us as we work to- ward our installation as a chapter of the largest and wealthiest fra- ternity in the world, Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

KODAK TMY 5053 rn " " ( Q $5 " 1 1 ! ! 1 i The 1987 Majors: Driven by the will to win The 1987 Millsaps Majors football team, which included eighteen returning players and thirty freshmen and transfers, was a team of contrasts. It was a team where young inexperienced players were counted on at several key positions while veteran players filled other positions with confi- dence and leadership. The 1987 Majors could be characterized as a team driven by the . . . will to win. The Millsaps Majors, in their season opener, met the Tenn. Wesleyan Bulldogs and shut them out for the second consecu- tive year by a score of 31-0. The Majors jumped out to a 1 2-0 first quarter lead on a pair of touchdowns by quarterback Chad Marks and wide receiver Darrin Estes; Millsaps went on to rack up totals of 258 rushing yards on forty-nine carries and 1 38 passing yards on twelve completions. Lead- ing the Millsaps receivers, Estes had seven catches for ninety-one yards rushing and one touchdown. Estes, who led the nation among Division III punters last season, punted four times for 209 yards and a fifty- two yard average. Defensively, the Majors allowed only eight completions on twenty- two attempts, caused three fumbles, sacked the quarterback once and intercepted one pass. In the second game of their season the Majors defeated Divison II NAIA power- house Union College 3 1 -9. In a game which on paper seemed to be a mismatch, with Union College seemingly superior, the Ma- jors showed a will to win which drove them to victory. Union College, a team with over one hundred players on its roster and ranked eighteenth in the nation NAIA Di- vision II, was able to score first but immedi- ately fell behind the Majors and never re- gained the lead. The Majors defense, which was a key part of the victory, allowed the Bulldogs only twenty-six yards rushing in the first half and forced a loss of yardage in the second half. Millsaps intercepted a pass and sacked the quarterback twice. Offen- sively, the Majors, who had 391 total offen- sive yards were led in rushing by Jerry Leonard, Todd Thriffley, and Andy Man- sukhani, who had 113, seventy-four, and fifty-one yards rushing respectively. Leonard, along with Buddy Bass, ran for two touchdowns and one touchdown respec- tively. Quarterback Rusty Davis led the team in passing, completing five of twleve passes for fifty-seven yards and no intercep- tions. The Majors, in their first loss of 1 987, fell to the University of the South Tigers in a close game by a final score of 17 to 13. The winning touchdown, socred by the Tigers, was scored in the closing seconds, leaving no time for the Majors to drive down the field for another score. Millsaps struck first in the game on an early two yard touch- down run by Buddy Bass. The Tigers re- plied almost immediately with seven points of their own. The Majors came back to take the lead on a sixty yard touchdown pass from Rusty Davis to Steve Levee. Defen- sively, the Majors played tough causing three fumbles and sacking the Tigers ' quar- terback twice. They held the Tigers to only ninety-five yards in total rushing, including fifty-seven yards lost in rushing. The Majors, in the first of two consecu- tive road trips, defeated the Trinity Univer- sity Tigers 33 to 10. The game, which re- mained scoreless through most of the first half, shaped up early to be a battle of the defenses. In the second quarter, the Tigers scored their only touchdown. As if on a sig- nal, the Millsaps offense opened up to score Tlarpei Leon ' ard, Andy Mansukhani, Wade Tommy Ponder, Shane Reed, Bobby t»eede, Ed Schneider, Clay Rapager, Scott Green, Chuck Burkhardt, Gary Cullon, Randy Luna, KenyaUa i .

These scores came on touchdowns of thirteen and three yards each, by Buddy Bass and Jerry Leonard respectively. The score at the half was 14 to 10 after Trinity kicked a thirty- seven yard field goal with seconds left in the half. Where the first half had been a see- saw battle of the defenses, the second half was all Millsaps. The Majors last three scores came on a thirty yard pass from Rusty Davis to Darrin Estes, a nine yard run by Davis, and another pass from Davis to receiver Mike Brown. Todd Triffley and Jerry Leonard led the Majors in rushing with fifty-two yards on fourteen carries, and forty yards on twelve carries respec- tively. The Majors ' receivers were led by Darrin Estes and Chris Hemphill, who had one catch for thirty yards and one catch for twenty-eight yards respectively. Defensive- ly, the Majors were led by Scott Green who had fourteen tackles, including seven unas- sisted. Aubrey Falls also contributed with one fumble recovery and one interception. Another contributor to the Majors ' defen- sive efforts was punter Darrin Estes, who had the second longest punt of his career, seventy-two yards. Finally, Clay Ranager blocked a crucial field goal try by Trinity, which set up a Millsaps touchdown. The Majors, facing their perrenial rivals, the Rhodes College Lynxcats, lost by a final score of 22 to 15. The game, which started out with a seven point Millsaps lead early on, was played very much in the air. Quar- terbacks Rusty Davis and Jody Caraccioli led the offense in total offensive yards. Da- vis had twenty-five attempts, twelve com- pletions, and one interception for seventy- four yards; while Caraccioli threw three times and compelted two for sixty-four yards. The Majors ' only two touchdowns were scored by Jerry Leonard and Rusty Davis with runs of one yard and t hirty-nine yards respectively. One highlight of the game was the six punts by Darrin Estes for 224 yards. Estes was ranked second in the nation among NCAA Division III punters that week. Against Central Methodist, the Majors dominated in just about every facet of the game. The Majors had 172 yards rushing, 216 yards passing, and forty-three yards in returns. On defense, the Majors had three quarterback sacks and four fumble recover- ies. The final score was 24 to 7 in Millsaps favor. In the game, the Majors were led in rushing by Jerry Leonard, who had twelve carries for eighty-three yards and one touchdown. Buddy Bass had forty-eight yards on sixteen carries and two touch- downs. In passing, Rusty Davis led the team with thirty attempts and twenty com- pletions for 208 total yards. Catching passes for the Majors were Mike Hester, Mike Brown, Darrin Estes, Jerry Leonar d, Buddy Bass and Chris Hemphill. Hester and Brown had four catches for a total of fifty-nine yards and five catches for a total of forty-seven yards respectively. Defen- sively, the Majors were led by Clay Ran- ager and Burt Amison. Ranager had six tackles, six assists, and one fumble recov- ery. Amison had five tackles, two assists, two quarterback sacks, and three fumble recoveries. Also contributing was Chuck 117 Clayton, who had three tackles, one assist, and one sack. Millsaps, in their seventh game of the season, was matched up against the Lam- buth College Eagles. From the beginning of the game, it was apparent that the Eagles faced an uphill battle and were extremely outclassed by a very inspired Millsaps team. The Majors, who scored in all four quarters, including twenty-eight points in the second quarter, ran and passed excep- tionally well. Millsaps first scored on a six- ty-six yard pass from quarterback Rusty Davis to receiver Darrin Estes for a touch- down late in the first quarter. Early in the second quarter Davis again passed for a touchdown, this time on a nine yard toss to Steve Levee. Minutes later, Chuck Clayton blocked a Lambuth kick and scored the third touchdown for the Majors with a little more than four minutes left in the quarter and then again with less than a minute left in the quarter. These two touchdowns came on a five yard pass to Todd main Thriffley and a three yard run by Darrin Estes. This put the score at thirty-five to nothing in favor of the Majors as the half ended. The Majors scored twice more in the game, once in the third quarter, and once in the fourth quarter. The first touchdown was on a Da- vis to Estes passing combination and the second on a one-yard run by senior Scott Christian. This left the final score at 49 to 7 in Millsaps ' favor. Millsaps was led in rush- ing by Todd Thriffley and Scott Christian, who had eleven carries for sixty yards and eight carries for thirty-seven yards respec- tively. As a team, the Majors rushed forty- one times for 115 yards and two touch- downs. In the air, quarterbacks Rusty Da- vis and Jody Caraccioli passed twenty times and completed thirteen for 182 yards total and four touchdowns. Davis had his best game of the year with fifteen attempts and nine completions for 128 yards and three touchdowns. The Millsaps receivers were led by Darrin Estes who had seven catches for 129 yards and two touchdowns. Steve Levee had two catches for twenty-eight yards and one touchdown. On defense, the Majors sparkled behind the solid leadership 118 Far left: Jerry Leonard with the carry. Top left: Rusty Davis confers with coaches Wise, Ranager, Davis and Giordano.

Above right: Mike Brown eludes the Lam- buth defense. of senior Clay Ranager, who had two inter- ceptions for fifty-two yards and led the team in tackles. The Majors also blocked one kick, recovered one fumble, and had several sacks. They allowed the Eagles only four yards rushing and forty-four yards passing. The Majors, in their final home game of the season, defeated Washington Universi- ty 28 to 16. The Majors, who scored once in each quarter, clenched their tenth consecu- tive winning season. Senior Darrin Estes, who led the team in rushing with fourteen carries for forty-two yards and two touch- downs, also caught three passes for thirty yards and one touchdown. Estes led the team in scoring with eighteen points. The only other score came on a nine yard pass to Jerry Leonard. Leonard caught five passes for a total of sixty-six yards and one touch- down. The Majors ' offensive attack, which came mainly from the air, was led by Rusty Davis. Davis passed thirty-one times, com- pleting eighteen for two touchdowns. Mike Brown led the Majors in receiving with three catches for eighty-four yards and Mike Hester pulled down three passes for forty-seven yards. Also contributing a sea- son high ninety-four yards on four kickoff returns was Todd Thriffley. Defensively, Millsaps, ranked tenth in the nation the previous week, recovered two fumbles and intercepted one pass. Tommy Ponder and Chuck Clayton recovered the fumbles and Aubrey Falls intercepted the pass, return- ing it for twenty-one yards. Millsaps then traveled to Tennessee to play the Lane College Dragons. The Ma- jors were victorious by a final score of 2 4 to 23. Offensively, the Majors were led in rushing by Todd Thriffley and Andy Man- sukhani.

Some of the key returning players were top scorers Mike Morlan and Tony Moore. Another important returning per- son was Kevin Brune, who led the 1986 team in scoring. He returned this year as assistant coach. Key additions to the team were freshman standouts Micky Brown from Jackson and Todd Brown from Mem- phis. The 1987 Majors faced the toughest schedule in their history, including two top twenty teams at the beginning of the sea- son. The Majors started off the season with a win over Hines College, then fell to na- tionally ranked Centenary in an impressive team effort. From that point on, a season of promise had turned sour for the Majors as they often played equal or better than the opposition, but could never quite finish with a win. The highlight of the season was a victory over regionally ranked Emory Uni- versity in an awesome battle that was decid- ed by the third goal in the final ten seconds of the game, scored by Tony Moore. Though the Majors were disappointed with the season, many returnees will provide hope for a better team next year. by Chris Crosby and Chris Kochtitzky o Moore, Susan Boone, Amy Ridlehoover, Coach Kevin Brune, David Laird; Coach George Gober, Demita Bailey, Jeff Bruni, Scott Cole Second row: Ricardo Chamis, Scott Pearson, Louis Garrett, C hris Kelly, Tony Melvin, Barry Beck, Michael Newman, Brad Mitchell, Micky Brown Third row: Chris Crosby, David Atkins, Brian Gualamo, Dan Ayers, Chris Siefert, Glenn Melvin,.

The top five scorers from the 1986 13-3-2 team were among those who returned. The Lady Majors went through a drastic change this year when they went from from a spring to a fall schedule. Eventhough this only gave them a three month rest from season to season, they still remained com- petitive. This year the Lady Majors com- piled a record of seven wins, eight losses, and one tie. They faced the toughest sched- ule of their history this season. All of their opposition this year were varsity or school- supported club teams.

The team was led by its juniors, Jimmy Carr, Tim Wise, Ted Hunt, and Tyrone McDonald. Carr Led the team in total points with 517, total three point goals with 83, and three-point shot percent- age with 49.1%. Wise also lead the team in steals with 46 (almost two per game). Hunt was thirty-four of forty from the free-throw line, placing him second on the team in free-throw percentage. Hunt was also sec- ond on the team in three-point goals with twenty-three, behind only Jimmy Carr. The rebound leader on the team was Ty- rone McDonald, who had 1 59 on the season and averaged 6.11 per game. Other highlights of the season included playing in front of over five thousand in a tough loss to Division I University of Ala- bama-Birmingham and tournament victo- ries in Trinity University. Individually, Carr had an outstanding season, in which he was placed on three all-tournament teams including t he Rhodes College, Mill- saps, and Trinity Tournaments. In the Trinity Tournament, Carr broke the tour- nament record for most points scored in a game, and he accomplished this in the first- half of the game. He also joined the ranks of Millsaps players who have over one-thou- sand point in their collegiate careers. Na- tionally, he was ranked in the top ten among Division III players in three-point shots per game. Front row: Tim Williams, Asst.

The Lady Majors, under the coaching of J.R. West, were also victorious for the third straight year in the Millsaps Pepsi-Cola Invitational Tournament. Individually, senior Mindy Bowman was ranked number one in the nation among NCAA Division III Women ' s Players in three-point field goals made, as well as number ten in three-point field goal per- centage. Bowman had 4. 1 three-point shots per game and had a 43.8% three-point field goal percentage.

The team, as a whole, placed third in the NCAA Div. Ill Men ' s South Re- gional Finals. Individual- ly, in the South Region, they placed three mem- bers in the final rankings. Junior Todd Helbling, at 9-14, placed third in sin- gles in the Regional Fin- als.

The Majors captured their winning season by sweeping the final 2 games of the year from Rust College. One of the highlights of the ' 88 season was when the Majors defeated both Aurora College and Elmhurst College. Both of these Illinois teams qualified for the 1987 playoffs and advanced past the regionals. The Majors also defeated Rust College and N AIA pow- erhouse, Springhill College. The Majors were extremely talented both in the field and at the plate. Offensive- ly, the Majors were led by Senior Bill Dev- lin who had a team high batting average of .368 and Tony Melvin who hit safely in 12 consecutive games. The Majors showed their offensive proess with victories of 24-3, 1 1-0, and 10-0.

They started their year with the Delta State Invitational Tournament and went on to compete in invitational tourna- ments at Jackson State University, the Uni- versity of the South at Sewanee, and Wash- ington University. While still a young team, the members are looking forward to several years of continued progress as the team grows and matures. Golf Team Head Coach, Mary Ann Edge felt that " for a building year, the Majors did exceptionally well and showed great promise. ' Coach Edge is also the Head Coach of the Mill- saps Men ' s and Women ' s Cross Country Teams, which also had a promising year in 1987. Todd Clayton John Baddley David Sullivan Tim Wise Charles Shepherd David Lester Players not pictured: Joey Warwick, Lee Denton, Staten Fontaine, Billy Camp, and Joe Stevens. 136 The Millsaps Cross Country program, vhich previously had consisted of only a Vomen ' s squad, gained a Men ' s team this ear. Both the teams were very young how- ver and were going through the building rocess this year. Both of the teams com- eted in four races including: The Universi- y of Southern Mississippi Invitational, The Mississippi Intercollegiate Tournament, ' he Governor ' s Cup, and The Mississippi College Invitational. The top two women ' s runners for Mill- saps were Carah Lynn Billups and Lisa Loughman. Both finished consistently well including ninth and sixth places finishes overall in the Governor ' s Cup respectively. Loughman especially was consistent, fin- ishing in the top twenty in all four races. Billups was awarded the 1988 Spirit Award for the Women ' s Team and Loughman was named Most Outstanding Runner for the second year in a row. Of all the runners on the Men ' s Team, Tracy Griffin, who also served as student , Cross Country coach, was the most consistent runner. Griffin was named Most Outstanding Run- ner for 1988 for the Men ' s Team. Steve Anderson was the recipient of the 1988 Spirit Award for the Men ' s Squad. Accord- ing to Coach Mary Ann Edge, " Consider- ing the competition which both teams ran against, mostly Division I and II schools, we performed very well. We have a lot of talent on both of the teams and should continue to improve over the next few seasons.

In their first camp attendance in three years, they won four Superior ribbons and one Excellent and brought home one spirit stick. The 1987-88 squad of Millsaps Majors cheer- leaders was one of the finest Millsaps squads in recent years, due partly to the tumbling skills of Eric Bufkin and Greg Schwab. The Majors had a re-election for basketball cheerleaders for the first time in several years and continued to lead and inspire the spirit of the Majors throughout the year. Another first achieved this year for the squad was the one hour P.E. credit which was granted through the perserver- ance and determination of captains Chris Powell and Tracy Applewhite.

For those who find the greek system " not for them " , independence at Millsaps is a viable alternative. Although often viewed as a group which arises due to non-accep- tance, these students are still making their mark on the Millsaps Community.

Gallien, re- ceived his B.S. from Baylor University and both his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina. He enjoys being part of a small liberal arts college in the south and finds that his extracurricular inter- ests in various sports have coin- cided well with the interests of his students. Consequently he has been able to get to know some students outside his aca- demic discipline which he finds very rewarding. One of two new English teachers. Miss Lida Burris, has a B.A. from Millsaps and an M.A. from Tulane University. Miss Burris plans to continue her graduate work in the fall of 1988 and claims this year of teaching at Millsaps has been an invaluable professional ex- perience for her. She has learned a great deal from her students and particularly from her colleagues some of whom she finds very good role models. After receiving her Ph.D. she hopes to continue teaching col- lege. Mrs. Betsy Folk, another Millsaps graduate and new ad- dition to the English Depart- ment, received her M.A. from Vanderbilt University and since finished the necessary course work for a Ph.D. in English. Mrs. Folk believes in a stimu- lating class discussion instead of pure dictation as a way of learning. She wants to install creativity in her students as they analyze their writing and watch their skills develop. She enjoys the energy in learning at Millsaps and its trend towards research. Yoko Baba comes from Kobe City, Japan by way of Oklahoma. She received her B.B.A. from Kwansei Gukuin University, Japan, an M.S. from Pittsburg State Universi- ty, and an M.S.W., M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Oklahoma. Dr. Baba claims that outside of her work, her life is boring that, in fact, Sociology is her life. When asked what she wants to do if given time. Dr. Baba responded that she would like to visit another eastern country like China. However, Dr. Baba also adds that she just does not have the time. New as a full-time voice in- structor, Mrs. Cheryl Coker is certainly not a new face on cam- pus. Mrs. Coker receiver her B.M.Ed, and M.M. at the Uni- versity of Southern Mississippi and has spent the last three years teaching at Millsaps. To her, working with Millsaps stu- dents is quite a challenge re- quiring her to expand her knowledge in dealing with indi- vidual voices and personalities. This need coupled with the en- thusiasm of the students pro- vide a stimulating atmosphere for professional development and gratifying teaching exper- ience. One of the two new assistant professors of History, Patrick Delana, received his B.A. at Ev- ergreen State College and his Ph.D. at Claremont Graduate School. Dr. Delana is interested in interdisciplinary studies which is what attracted him to Millsaps College. He likes the liberal arts school that is com- mitted to the liberal arts and claims one of our prime attrac- tions is the Heritage program. Dr. Delana has taught at Har- vey Mudd College and Santa Ana College. Edward Ryan received a B.E. from the University of Omaha, a B.S. and an MBA from Michigan State Universi- ty and DBA from George Washington State University. Professor Ryan commenced his teaching career in 1975 after serving with the United States Air Force for twenty-five years. He believes that his Air Force career, including world-wide travel and operational control over Air Force courier (top se- cret) matters, gave him the in- sight necessary to teach and ad- vise at the college level which he really enjoys. Receiving his B.S. and M.S. at the University of Southern Mississippi and his Ph.D. at Oklahoma State University, Hugh J. Parker is now an asso- ciate professor of accounting. He has previously taught at the University of Southern Missis- sippi and also has ten years of experience as a public accoun- tant; he is also a Gold Medalist on the CPA exam. Dr. Parker is his family ' s third generation to attend Millsaps. The new instructor of math- ematics, Sara Elizabeth Napp, received her B.S. at the Univer- sity of Alabama and her MAT at Livingston University. Mrs. Napp believes math helps to de- velop one ' s thinking skills and allows one different ways of see- ing things. Attracted by our reputation, Mrs. Napp feels fortunate to have the opportuni- ty to work at " such a wonderful institution as Millsaps " . William A. Hailey, a new professor of Business Adminis- tration, received his B.B.A. at the University of Mississippi, his MBA at Loyola and his Ph.D. at the University of Ken- tucky. Aside from teaching. Dr. Hailey hopes to do research in the areas of quality assurance and management information systems. Dr. Hailey raced ca- noes for fourteen years and even competed nationally. He still enjoys flying down a river every now and then. Dr. Cecilia Cornell, new as- sistant professor of history, re- ceived her B.S. from Western Oregon State College and her M.A. and Ph.D. from Vander- bilt University. As a long term goal, she wants to complete her book on the origins of the Cold War. She hopes to use her own research and writing to make teaching a process of mutual discovery for both teacher and student. 156 Faculty Jeanne Forsythe — Education B.A., Millsaps College; M.Ed., Ed.D., Harvard Uni- versity Louis B.

She received both her B.S. and M.S. from the Univer- sity of Mississippi and her doc- torate from the University of Southern Mississippi. Coach Edge teaches a variety of courses in health and physical education and has, during her time here, coached the Men ' s Golf team, the Women ' s Bas- ketball team and the Cross Country team. She has tried to keep involved outside the school serving with many community organizations and with the Spe- cial Olympics. She really enjoys each new year with the chal- lenge it brings in every new crop of students. She hopes that in some way she is able to help shape and develop each student that passes through her class or is on one of her teams. Coach Edge has seen this campus and student body really grow over the past thirty years. She likes the " new look " of Millsaps, and looks forward to many more re- warding years of teaching here. Before joining the Millsaps faculty in 1950 Mr. Lance Goss received his A.B. from Millsaps and his A.M. from Northwest- ern University. Since then he has held the position of Director of the Millsaps Players. His credits, as Director of the Play- ers, are long and distinguished; he even receives praise from drama critics throughout the state. The Players were the first group in the state to perform plays such as Death of a Sales- man and A Streetcar Named Desire and also to produce var- ious Broadway musicals on a regular basis. The Players ' pro- duction of Hamlet in 1954 was the first in Mississippi to use the music of Lehman Engel in a production. This version of Hamlet was also called the fin- est presentation that Millsaps has given to the public in any form to that date. Two of the " more famous " individuals to come through the Players in- clude Michael Beck and Allen Hunter. John Guest has taught Ger- man to Millsaps students for the past 31 years. He received his A.B. from the University of Texas and M.A. from Colum- bia Univ., and he has done ad- vanced study at New York Uni- versity and Bonn University. One of the most decisive events in his life was the year that he spent in Vienna on a Fulbright Scholarship. It was during this time that he learned about Ger- man culture and the " meaning of civilization. " Wendell Johnson, now a Pro- fessor Emeritus, joined the Millsaps faculty in 1954 as a part-time professor of Geology and has since become Chair- man of the Geology Depart- ment. He attended Kansas State University where he re- ceived both his B.S. and B.A. in Geology. A few of the Profes- sional Societies to which he be- longs include: Sigma Xi, Mis- sissippi Academy of Sciences, Mississippi Geological Society and the Mississippi Gem and Mineral Society. He has helped to write a least eleven publica- tions and has given numerous talks to various organizations. Johnson has traveled to such places as Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Hawaii and several parts of North America and the Alps. Professor Johnson says that the greatest satisfaction in his career is the number of out- standing Geology majors he has taught and their mark in busi- ness, industry, teaching and many state and federal agen- cies. Dr. Smauel Knox, now a Professor Emeritus, has been at Millsaps as a mathematics pro- fessor for 37 years. He received his B.A. and M.A. from the University of Mississippi, and his Ph.D. from Virginia Poly- technic Institute. Knox has also studied at Oberlin College and at the University of Michigan. In addition, he has been Chair- man of the Mathematics de- partment since 1962. The pro- fessional socieites he is a mem- ber of include Theta Nu Sigma, Pi Kappa Pi, ODK; he has also been chosen as Distinguished Professor of the year. Knox has contributed articles to the American Mathematical Monthly and other magazines. Dr. Knox served with the Unit- ed States Marine Corps, as a radar technician in Guam, from February 1943 to June 1946. In his leisure time he enjoys wood- working, fishing, gardening and music. Dr. Russell Levanway, Chair of the Psychology De- partment, earned his A.B. from the Univ. of Miami and his M.S. and Ph.D. from Syracuse University. He began teaching partly because it involved the counseling of emotionally upset students, but as he became more involved, he found that he was hooked to teaching itself, and not just to counseling. Soon afterward, he took the job at Millsaps in 1956 and began his tenure here. Dr. Levanway, during his time here, has made many observations about stu- dents ' behavior and ability. He says that the students are in the best position to influence the quality of their education, and take control of a boring class and make it exciting. In his opinion, the students control the level of excitement that per- vades in a classroom. One of the most interesting things, accord- ing to Dr. Levanway, is to see an average student transform into a " burning fire of scholarship. " Jonathan Sweat earned his B.S. and M.S. from the Julliard School of Music. He joined Millsaps in 1958 and in 1963 was awarded the Danforth Grant to pursue his study of music at the University of Michigan. He received his A.Mus.D. from the University of Michigan. In Michigan, Sweat gave many piano solos and chamber music recitals. While here at Millsaps, Mr. Sweat has taught classes in mu- sic theory and, of course, piano. He also enjoys giving the music lectures of the Heritage pro- gram. One of the highlights of his career came in 1985 when he was able to perform with the Millsaps Singers and the Jack- son Syumphony Orchestra in a performance of Beethoven ' s Fantasy for Piano, Choir and Orchestra. Once again, in the Spring of 1 987, he returned on a sabbatical leave to the Julliard School of Music. He attended classes, lectures, recitals, con- certs, operas and art museums during his stay in New York. This return is what he calls " an exciting time of renewal.

First, the Public Rela- tions Department has been an invaluable re- source providing advice and photographs to staff members. Contracted by the P. R. Department, the Communication A rts Company has freely provided for several color photos used in the in- troduction of the yearbook. Special thanks go out to the members of the Office of Student Affairs who aided us greatly in the day-to-day workings of the yearbook. Finally, I would like to thank all the members of the staff who put forth many hours of work even after school ended, especially Susan Lee and Bill Morris who were able to give the Bobashela such fine quality photographic prints throughout the year.
