Art. VII. Eleanor Preston Coleman leaves to Cornelia Elizabeth Cooper her cowboy ways together with her executive ability and her cannibalistic tendency to eat the last of everybody. Art. VIII. To Nellie Fargason, Adelaide Louise Cunningham hereby bequeaths her silly giggle, her skill in English composition and her housewifely tendencies. Art. IX. Mary Wallace Kirk, otherwise known as President of the Agnes Scott Academy, gives to May Joe Lott her license to wave at the gentlemen of the faculty, and her sentimentality, expressed especially in Love Lyrics.

XL To Carol Laken Stearns, Mary Elizabeth Radford wills her abundant suit of hair and her decided aversion to man. Art.

Our motto for life; Chosen in fulness and power of our youth. Long ere our strength had been tried. Long ere the waves and the tide Mightily rolled o ' er us, teaching the truth: Few conquer, few even survive in the strife. II We have excelled in each field we have found: Scholarship, tennis, and much besides looks. We are a class dexterously skilled, We are a class which has filled Page after page in our annuals and books ; Yet there arises a doubt in our minds. Have we been true to our motto so good? Gloomily backward we look o ' er the years. Seeing mistakes we have made. Seeing our motto decayed. Searching our hearts through the mist of our tears Wondering if truly we ' ve done what we could. IV Through the dark shadows of doubt there appears Brightly the hope of the year yet unspent: Hope in the strength of our wills, Hope in that faith which fulfils; Strong in the might of our single intent. Conquer we shall all the incoming years. J JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY 0 O tell all the glories of our illustrious class (which tradition says is the duty of 1 the Historian) would take up more room in the Annual than its inexorable staff will allow, or would force us to adopt a serial plan and have our history " continued in our next. " But to give you, O gentle Reader, a cursory view of our glories, past and present, I will say that they, like Gaul, are divided into three parts. We excel, nay we surpass all, in our studies, in art, and in athletics. Who won the laurel wreath when we were little green Freshmen? Echo answers, " The green little Freshman, Cornelia. " To whom did Cornelia yield her palm when we were noisy Sophomores? Echo answers, " To the noisy Sophomore, Annie Chopin. " We have the 39 high average habit now and it would be quite a surprise to see some alien walk off with a scholarship for piano, voice, or art. But I am forgetting the grand third division — athletics. We have not yet yielded our place as basket-ball champions and we star in all other lines as well. Why, I have stretched this out into a regular Sophomore brag, half forgetting that we are Juniors and must put away childish things. It is hard to realize that three years ago Agnes Scott did not know of our existence, and now her heart is nearly bursting with the pride of ownership of such jolly and withal such brilliant Juniors. But the jolly Juniors will soon be no more and the grandest Seniors of all (present company always excepted for the sake of any feelings that might be hurt) will take their places, and you will see our superlative class — the greenest of green Freshman, the noisest of noisy Sophomores, the joUiest of jolly Juniors — developing under our caps and gowns into the most dignified of dignified Seniors. Lessons over and out to the gym With vigor big and " fresh " young There with grace to far surpass The gracefulesl leader of ev ' ry ch A show at the Grand and at Lab a feast.

A Period of Proud Condescension (As also told by advertisements) As Sophs in September quite proud and prim. We came back to College with dignified vim; With benevolent purpose and haughty mien. To the Freshies quite lordly we surely did 11- a seem. Early one morning from A. S.

What are our stupid errors And endless blunders worth? Did ever simple mortal With eighty-seven of us. More agony live through We could have run the schoo Than we with moistened eyelash Yet meekly we surrendered — That first dread week or two? A most convenient tool. And now that we are wiser. One thing we know is this: We may have been quite stupid. But ignorance was bliss. For since we ' ve gotten fresher What makes the burden harder. Temptation has crept in; What lays the deepest snare While others are permitted. Is the harrowing traditions Whate ' er we do is sin. The Sophomores to us bear. Though, just like love or measles, ' Tis a stage we must live through. Would that we could escape it. Or a remedy we knew ! Yet, Freshmen, come to reason. We form the school ' s foundation Lend me your worthy ears! On us its fame relies; Why all this lamentation. Be not proverbial Freshmen, Why cherish we such fears? But let your deeds surprise. Each Senior was a Freshman Before she honored grew, And some day, little Freshman, You ' ll be a Senior, too. 49 ■crj HISTORY OF THE FRESHMAN CLASS 3 first T is a pity to begin a story with tears, but this is a true story, you know, and must begin with the very first day at college, when you and I were " new girls. " It might have started at the real beginning, when the Freshmen eft home; but that would be the story of more tears and very bitter ones and the mere reminder of that time might prove to-day that the Freshmen did not shed all of their tears, but that there is still an abundant supply left. However, the " old girls " took them in charge and planned such delightful surprises for every hour, that the newness soon wore off. And won ' t you confess now, that you were ready to wipe away homesick tears the very first time one of them took you to " Jaxons? " After that, things progressed in a more business- like manner. The first event of great importance was a class meeting. Don ' t you remember the notice read at supper? — " All regular Freshmen are requested to meet in Miss McKinney ' s recitation room immediately after prayers. " How proud you felt, even though an amused snicker from the older ones did sound over the dining-room. This first meeting was probably not a model of parlia- mentary order, but when the primary object of this meeting is re- membered, there is no wonder that it was not formal. It was called to plan a defensive for the oncoming and seemingly inevitable Freshman-Sophomore fight. Is it to the discredit, then, of the Class of 1914, that the business transacted at its first meeting was of this frivolous nature? No, oh no! They, like the wise virgins that they are, thought it important to be prepared for whatever might happen. It did happen, and with a vengeance at first and Freshmen and Sophomores alike will not soon forget the onslaughts of that night. Who said torn up rooms and pennants 50 " hi.3-. iin down? Who said funeral pyre and funeral procession? Echo answers, " who? " But they haven ' t forgotten. A treaty of peace was made, so the fight is now a thing of the remote past. However, someone has hinted that the classes will still bear watching. There have been other meetings, very important ones, for deciding on colors, flowers, pictures and the class motto. This motto: " Why should I study and make myself mad? " — is surely not entirely typical of the class, but its sentiment does show a certain happy philosophy, characteristic of its girls. I can ' t end this story now by saying they " all lived happily ever after, " because it is a record and, like other history, is in the makmg; in fact it is just begun. But they are going to live happily and only the future can tell what success and joy and glory will be theirs. September 1 4 College opens. 2 1 Rushing begins ! 28 M. L. S., 7; P. L.

To be in the midst of plenty and yet want — that is an exact expression of what it means to sit at the German table. All around at other tables sit gay, unconcerned people talking English with never a thought for that desert spot where " nur Deutsch, bitte, " is the rule. The dining-room seems a paradise and this place so far removed that tears involuntarily start to the eyes of the lonely one, who, far from her own table and friends, is as a stranger in a strange land. Now and then the lonely one essays a few words, only to be met with the informa- tion that she has gotten her participle wrong, or that her adjectives have no case endings. Savagely she shuts her mouth, and inwardly vows (in English) that so long as she lives she will never utter another word of German. Once upon a time she liked this language, now — yet perhaps it is best not to speak of it. The lonely one silently applies herself to a bad dinner, and feels within her heart of hearts that Fate is against her. Behold! Not even the consolation of silence is afforded her. From the head of the table comes the call, " Fraulein! Fraulein! " spoken in a commanding voice, and Fraulein obediently turns her attention to the head of the table. " Sprechen sie auf Deutsch, Fraulein. Sprechen sie viel, viel! " " Yes ' m, " Fraulein mutters. " Ach, aber Deutsch! " comes to her ears. " Yes ' m, " she answers and relapses into silence. On the other side of Fraulein the girl who has had so many years of German and who speaks it with such lightning-hke rapidity, turns to her and begins an animated dis- course on something. Fraulein can ' t make out just what she is saying. She ends it by asking a question, the substance of which the lonely one has not the slightest comprehen- sion. What should she answer? Mentally designating her fork as " nein " and her spoon as " ja " she counts, " My mamma told me to take this one. " The spoon gets it. " Ja, " she answers to the girl, praying that she has not said anything very terrible. 60 % ' mm v - ' -.Vv nr " Horen sie wie gut dieses Fraulein versteht! " the girl says to the head of the table, and together they beam on the lonely one. A glow comes around her heart, and she feels pleas ed with the world again. Secretly, she pats the spoon that was " ja. " After all, she concluded, German isn ' t so bad as long as you have a spoon and fork to count on. S. B.

Its organ is the executive committee, consisting of a president and vice-president, elected f rom the Senior Class; a secretary and marshall, elected from the Junior Class; and eight representatives elected from the four college classes. This organization is of inestimable value in molding the thoughts and habits of the girls who come here to college. It places a girl on her own responsibility, just as the citizen of a state is placed. Each student has a voice in the election of those who are to make and enforce the laws by which she shall be governed. Furthermore, the foundation of the whole system is personal honor, and its tendency is to make this element a very definite one in the life of its members. y2 YOUNG WOMEN ' S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OFFICERS Marv Wallace Kirk, President Ruth Slack, Vice-Presidenl Adelaide Cunningham, Secretary Eleanor Coleman, Trea nr OL YOUNG WOMEN ' S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION ■■ HE Young Women ' s Christian Association was organized in 1 906, and since I I that time has steadily grown in strength and influence with the student body. % l Its successive presidents have been: Miss Sara Boals, Miss Maud Hill, Miss Margaret McCallie, Miss Irene Newton, and Miss Mary Wallace In I 908 the association assumed half the support of an Agnes Scott alumna who is a missionary in China, and still continues this noble work. The quick and enthusiastic response with which the appeal for this undertaking was met revealed a genuine and widespread interest in missionary work. The influence of the Y. W. C. A. in upholding the standard of Christian life is very great. Under its auspices four Bible Study Classes and four Mission Study Classes are conducted; and its varied committee work draws a large number of students into active Christian service. The influence of such an organization, however, should not be judged by tangible results only; much of the help it gives to the college life is uncon- sciously received and does its work silently but none the less powerfully. p ' Mil ill mr " THE DOORS ' CLOSING! 3N the realm of Agnes Scott there is a certain law in force that sounds something like this: " Whosoever shall be too lazy, too forgetful, or merely too unfortu- nate to reach the ' happy feeding ground ' before the doors leading thereinto are closed, that unfortunate one shall enter only at the peril of losing her fair name and having her honor smirched. " If one be guilty of such an offence, she is summoned before the Dean, and woe unto any self-respecting citizen that is summoned before the Dean. All vestige of self- respect is lost in that interview ! The offending one comes forth with the firm conviction that she is not fit to associate with the worms of the field, and in her heart there is the strong determination that, since she has been fortunate enough to obtain forgiveness this time, never again will she be guilty of such an offence. Therefore, the idea of going in after once these massive portals have been closed, being eliminated, thus the proposition is narrowed to " Beat the doors or no breakfast! " The word breakfast is used in preference to dinner or supper, first because it has the particular merit of batter-cakes and the pain of missing it is therefore greatly increased; and secondly because breakfast is the only meal for which so many difficulties have to be overcome. From sleep, sweet sleep, the fair one is rudely awakened by the ringing of a bell, sometimes the first breakfast bell, but more often the last. A blessing it is, that the last bell rings for five minutes. At the end of that five minutes, the alarm is started by some one who h s been stationed to watch, and the cry goes up from all sides, " The doors ' closing! " " The doors ' closing! " Oh, the magic power in that sentence! In the language of to-day, the word " Sesame " is not in it when it comes to the cry of the " doors ' closing. " On all sides doors fly open and girls clad in various and sundry articles and various and sundry degrees come flying or stumbling out as the case may be, making a mad rush to get down stairs before George — the " Dragon of the gate " — finishes closing the dining-room doors. 73 m Look at that girl, carrying her dress in her hand! Can she get there? Just watch and see. She puts her dress over her head going down the steps, slaps at the top and bottom hooks, slips into a sweater and — strolls in as if she had been dressed for a half hour. Another girl is frantically buttoning every other button on her shoes, while another is tying a ribbon around her streaming hair. One and all, however impossible it may seem, after the desperate effort under the rallying force of " the doors ' closing " walk serenely into the dining-room, with the joyous feeling of a conqueror; and as they sit down the thought of batter cakes recurs to their minds with a blissful feeling of satisfaction.

She looked with half-open eyes at Marjory, writing letters at the little desk in the corner. " It is fortunate for poor mother that she has you, Marjory, " she remarked. " You are so good about being piloted along through a social career. Don and I are very nice in our way, I suppose, but our way isn ' t as you and mother would have it. Oh, well, I shall lay every bit of the blame on Don ; he is older than I am anyway, and he led me from the social path that mother and you had planned for me. " Marjory, rather pretty, and rather plump, altogether correct in every detail, stared with open disapproval at her sister. " Well, Nan, I think you are very foolish. When you came home from college last spring, we were going to give you a beautiful debut party in the fall. You are the prettiest one in the family, and we had planned it and taken so much interest in what we would do for you, when h ere you flew ofl at this tangent and refused to go out at all, except with a very few of Don ' s special friends, and some of these infants you have picked up around here who play golf and tennis, and skate well. Don is a man, and if he chooses to give society the cut direct it is his own affair, but it is too silly for you to undertake to do everything he does. I call it pure ingratitude for you to behave this way. " " I know, Marjory, dear, I have heard all of that before, but I ' ve had a dandy time here at home all winter, just doing exactly as I please. I ' ve had a much better time than you have. " Nan threw her arms over her head and yawned. " Anyway, I ' m glad I don ' t have to go to that dinner at the Marches ' this evening; it would bore me to death. " The telephone at Marjory ' s elbow rang. She took down the receiver. " Hello. " " Oh, Mrs. March. " " You ' re in a scrape about this evening? " " Who? " " Oh, yes, my little sister. " 89 »!! -.i )yv »«! M ; There was a long speech at the other end of the Hne during which time Marjory speculatively surveyed her " httle sister. " She was lying back in the Morris chair, slim, hthe, with an almost boyish figure, staring in front of her from under straight, dark brows. " Why she isn ' t at home right now, Mrs. March, but I know she will be de- lighted to go. " Nan sat up with a jerk. " Look here, Marjory, am I the subject of all that? " " Hush, Nan, I can ' t hear. Yes, indeed, I ' ll just accept it for her. Who did you say you had put her with? " " Oh, yes. I know she will be delighted. Good-bye. " Nan was leaning on the desk, indignation in every feature. " Call Mrs. March up right this minute, Marjory, and tell her I am not going. " " Now, Nan, be reasonable, " Marjory laughed nervously. " You see, Mrs. March is in a hole about this; there is an extra man coming that she had not counted on, and she must have another girl. " " Well, I am not here to pull her out of holes. What is Mrs. March to me? " " How selfish of you! " " I didn ' t think you would tell a story about it, either; I ' m not going to that party, Marjory. " " Nan, it was a case of necessity. I am very anxious for you to go, and I knew you wouldn ' t want to if you talked to her yourself. She said Mr. Havisham was going to take you in to dinner. It is too cruel for you to speak that way about Mrs. March, when she is a special friend of mine, and she said so many lovely things about you to me over the ' phone. She said you were so pretty and attractive that you would be an ornament to the occasion — but you don ' t deserve for me to tell you any more. " Well, it was very nice for her to say that — but I ' m not going. " Marjory resumed her letter-writing at the desk, but she kept one eye on her sister. Nan stared gloomily out of the window for several minutes, then she tried to read a magazine which was lying on the table. At last she threw it down and bit viciously into a chocolate. mn " Marjory, I think you are the meanest thing I ever saw to get me into this. Who did you say was going to take me in? " " Mr. Havisham — Cyril Havisham. " " I ' ve never even met him. Does he ever come here? " " Yes. You have never met more than about six of my friends, you know. When- ever any one is here, you and Don always retire to the upper part of the house. He is as nice as he can be. Nan; has the reputation of being a lady-killer. He is so different from the boys you have been used to going with, that I know you will like him, if only for the change. " " But what will I talk to him about? I will be frightened to death. Does he play golf? " " No, he never touches golf or tennis, and he doesn ' t skate or do any of those things. He says he would have to be over his ears in love with a girl before he could get up enough energy to play with her. But we could plan what to talk about beforehand. " " All right, then, you pretend like you ' re the lady-killing Cyril, and I ' ll be Miss Nan Holmes. " " Well, let ' s see, what will he be likely to say? Oh, yes, he ' ll say, ' How do you like being out of school. Miss Holmes? ' " " I don ' t like it at all. It is so much more fun to be there with all of the girls — " " How perfectly horrid! For the reputation of the family. Nan, say something better than that. " " Oh, it is perfectly charming to be at home. I never felt like I really knew mother and dear Marjory before this year. " " That ' s splendid. ' I believe your sister told me that you would make you this winter? ' " No, I ' m not going — " " Can ' t you be a little more mild? " " Certainly, I can be anything. ' I really don ' t know, I haven ' t decided yet. say that, I ' ll have to cross my fingers. " " It ' s a perfectly inane remark anyway, I hope you won ' t say it. " 9i " What if he doesn ' t say any of these things? Wouldn ' t it be perfectly horrible if he shouldn ' t? " " He will, though; at least, he will be likely to. I don ' t know what elese he might start. Oh, of course he will speak of the weather; how could I have for- gotten that? " " Yes, I think I could intelligently discuss the weather in all its different phases without a rehearsal. But, Marjory, if there is an awful break in this unusually interest- ing stream of talk what under the sun am I to say? So far I have only answered his questions, you know. " " Why, " Marjory looked about vaguely, as if seeking inspiration, until her glance rested on the bookcase. " Why — er — talk about books. " Nan stood up. " Thank you, " she said, " you have certainly helped me. I shall ask him, like a thunderbolt out of a clear sky, if he has read George Eliot ' s latest. " She looked out of the window, her back toward Marjory. She was laughing. " Marjory, I haven ' t said I would go to your old party yet, but I will, on one condition. That is if you will let me wear that string of pearls mother gave you the other day. " Marjory gasped. " O Nan! I have never worn them myself yet. " " I know it. But I adore those pearls. " " Well, take them then, " she sighed. Nan smiled — like a cherub, and nibbled a chocolate. II Nan stood by the wmdow with Marjory for a moment before dinner. " I ' ll be even with you yet for getting me into this. I can ' t for the hfe of me remember one syllable of the conversation we rehearsed, and I memorized it word for word too. I hope the great Cyril isn ' t a very vicious-looking creature ; if he will only start me off right, maybe I can go on like a graphophone and remember. " " O Nan, dear, you look too lovely in that dress, it suits you exactly. I thought at first that you needed more of an evening dress, but this is informal — and you ' re so young. 92 T 4! M Don ' t be afraid; if you forget what we decided would be the proper things to say just talk about anything in that line, you know. I don ' t suppose you will say anything very dreadful. Here is Mr. Havisham, now, coming across the room with Mrs. March. He stood before them, tall, with fair hair and blue eyes — wide-open blue eyes — and was presented. When he had spoken the usual commonplaces to Nan, he turned to Marjory with a smile " And how are you to-night? I want to talk to you after dinner, if those other people will not monopolize you too much. I never can get a word with you. " At that moment dinner was announced. He led Nan in, and sat beside her, his head towering above hers. Nan looked doubtfully at his clearly defined profile out of the corner of her eye. He was so much taller, so much broader, so much larger in every way than she had expected, that he made her feel small. She had never felt small before, and she did not like the sensation — it took away her self-confidence, even the little that had remained She tasted her oysters. How she would have enjoyed them last winter, during her boarding-school days! It was so different now. Something must be said. The fatal moment had come, she was alone with this man, this strange man who would not speak — alone in a crowd. If she had really been alone with him she thought she might have found something to say, but she had a queer feeling that e ery one was watching her. She knew that Marjory and Mrs. March were. At last he turned toward her, and smiled. He had a nice smile, but Nan hated him for it " He thinks I ' m nothing but an infant without an idea in my head, " she said to herself " It is true, too, I haven ' t an idea. " " How do you like being out of school. Miss Holmes? Have you had a nice time this winter? " Nan heaved a sigh of relief. At last, and it was exactly the right thing ! She met Marjory ' s eyes and smiled contentedly. " Yes, I have had a lovely time here at home, doing as I please, and Marjory and mother have been so good to me. But I do miss every one at school. " 93 rap m I IM " You graduated last year? " " Yes. Oh, I would go back if I could. " " I thought your sister told me you would make your debut this winter. " " No. " Nan felt that it was wiser to be silent about that, even at the risk of stop- ping the conversation, since Marjory had expressed herself so strongly on that point. The conversation lagged. " Isn ' t this weather splendid? " " Yes. " Nan stifled a hysterical giggle. It had rained the day before. There was a pause ; it lengthened into a silence. The soup plates were taken away and the fish was brought in. Then came the horrible break in the conversation which Nan had feared. She glanced around wildly. Marjory was talking gayly to two men. Well, she was not like Marjory; she would not have wanted to talk to the man on her left even if she could. She looked at him; he was bald and wore glasses, and talked spasmodically to the lady beside him. She glanced at Mr. Havisham. He looked politely bored. Nan made a desperate plunge. " Have you — er — " she remembered what she had said about George Eliot ' s book, and smiled at him. He liked the smile; there was something so frank, almost childlike, about it. " Have you golfed much, or skated, lately? " She was on her own ground now, anyway. " No, I have never taken much interest in those things, though I think they are fine for one. I suppose it is because I am too lazy. Horrible fault, isn ' t it? Your sister tells me that you devote most of your time to out-door sport. " Yes, I like it so much better than anything else I could do. He leaned toward her. " Miss Holmes, why don ' t you go out with your sister more? We are not such a stupid lot as you think. You could stop it afterwards, if you wanted to, but I think you might give us a trial; you are hardly fair, you know. " Nan looked at him with terrified eyes. " Oh, you mustn ' t say that. " " What? " m He would think she was an idiot. She laughed. " We didn ' t know you were going to say that. " " What do you mean? Who? " " Well, you see — I ought not to tell you, it is too absurd — I didn ' t want to come at all to-nig ht, but Marjory had accepted the invitation for me. And I had no idea what you were like, or what to say to you, so Marjory and I made up what I should talk to you about, and we never thought of your saying that. You had done beautifully up to that last question, " she smiled at him again. Cyril Havisham looked first utterly astonished, then he laughed. He laughed so long and so loud that some one across the table wanted to hear the joke. At last he turned again to Nan. " But you can answer that without your sister, can ' t you? " " Certainly I can. But they would think it horrid for me to say it. " " I won ' t think it is horrid. " " Well, then, it is simply because I don ' t want to. I think it is dreadfully stupid to do nothing but play bridge, and go to dinners and dances, and make calls. I had rather be perfectly free to go only with the people I really like, even if some of them are ' infants, ' as Marjory calls them. If I led the life Marjory leads I would not have time for the things I like now. " Marjory looked across at Nan several times; they were talking all the time. Cyril Havisham looked anything but bored; indeed, he looked vastly more entertained than she had ever seen him look before. As the women rose to leave the fable, Havisham detained Nan. " And you will really let me go skating with you in the morning? " " Of course. " " What time shall I come over? " Nan considered a moment. " I may as well ' do it up brown, ' " she thought, " and it will be such fun to te Marjory. " Then aloud, " At half-past six o ' clock. I always skate before breakfast. " He watched her as she left the room. " I ' ll be there — Circe. " • E. ToWERS. WHAT ' S THE USE?

Rows of trunks may be seen lining either wall of the three corridors which meet at the light. Outside a north wind is blowing; inside all is still except for an occasional faint whisper. The city clock m the distance strikes eleven. Slowly a figure appears from the black shadows of the corridor on the left. It is a young girl wrapped in a long coat. Quietly she walks under the light and goes to a flight of stairs w hich lead to an upper story. She stops at the foot and reaches out for a wire hidden in the dark shadows. She pulls this vigorously several times. The loud clang of an alarm breaks the night silence, and reluctantly a motley throng of kimono ' d figures assembles under the light. — A throng whose variegated raiment would rival Joseph ' s coat, and who have no equal in the hair-dressing line. The captain orders the lieutenants to march their men down the stairs, and as they pass by she can hear murmurs of " I ' m so cold! " or " I ' ll get even with you for making me come out this cold night! " She then turns to the fire brigade, who are slinging extinguishers and other imple- ments of war in all directions: " The fire is in No. 17! " And away the chief rushes with her men. Extinguishers are flourished and buckets jostled up and down. " Say, I think your men need a little cold water on their eyes more than the fire does! " A laugh ensues and the brigade runs down the hall to put their apparatus away, while the rescued throngs come up the steps angrily murmuring. Their receding footsteps are followed by the imperative " Sh-sh-sh " of the hall president. So drops the curtain on the fire brigade. Ruth Slack. THE GREATER AGNES SCOTT all O the Class of 1910 fell the honor of announcing through the SILHOUETTE of that year the successful outcome of the famous campaign of November, 1909, carried through so triumphantly by the citizens of Atlanta and Decatur, for the development and endowment of the " Greater Agnes Scott. " If -we of 1911 envied them their opportunity then, we all the more appreciate our privilege now of putting on record the first tangible results of that great movement, — a movement in which we like to feel that we had a real, if not a financially great, part. We count ourselves peculiarly fortunate to have been here during this period of unprecedented growth; to have seen the beginning and the completion of the three splendid new buildmgs opened in 1911; and to have welcomed with eager interest the increase of the faculty and the broadening of the curriculum; to have seen, in short, what we earnestly believe to be but the commencement of the great era of expansion upon which our Alma Mater is now entering. We wish, therefore, to claim and set apart a few pages of the SILHOUETTE of 1911 in honor of " The Greater Agnes Scott. " And first, we will record in brief descriptions our impressions of the new buildings. THE JENNIE D. INMAN HALL This building is the gift of our beloved friend, " Atlanta ' s First Citizen, " Mr. Samuel M. Inman, being a memorial to his deceased wife. It is impressive in its architecture, and is especialy harmonious as a companion dormitory hall to our old favorite abode, Rebekah Scott Hall. Those of us who love " R. S. H. " (and who does not?) are glad to note the same beautiful mission oak panelling in the new lobby, hallways, reception rooms, and stairways; and we feel that Inman Hall is to prove a formidable future rival of Rebekah Scott in popularity. Its commanding presence on the east side of the campus has completely changed old familiar scenes; and we sometimes wonder if we are dreaming, or if the " Arbuckle House " and the tennis courts have really been swept out of knowl- edge and so replaced. 1)9 Standing on the south side of the Quadrangle, upon the former site of " West Lawn, " is the new Library, beautiful without and within, — " a joy forever. " When we were first allowed to step under the massive stone archway and pass through the marble-tiled vestibule into the main reading-room, we realized the substantial meaning of " Greater Agnes Scott " more forcefully than ever before. The graceful columns, supporting the gothic arches of the lofty oak-beamed ceiling; the long muUioned windows, almost ecclesiastical in effect; the exquisite panelling; the great fireplaces and mantles; all unite to produce an atmosphere typically scholastic and wonderfully satisfying. Nor has beauty alone been studied in the construction of the building; everything speaks of utility as well. There is an alluring magazine room, and there are dehghtful little private studies whose low ceilmgs and leaded windows combine to spell " coziness " in every detail; while the abundant wall shelves of the main hall, and the gallery stack space for over twenty thousand books, remind us that this is a Carnegie library, having its own special endow- 120 Few colleges for women have the sciences better provided for than has Agnes Scott in the new Lowry Science Hall. In its four-square architectural solidity it stands as verily for the practical culture of Science as does the more graceful Library Hall for the aesthetic culture of Letters. It is a splendid workshop, destmed, under the newly reorganized curriculum, to swarm with activity in all the departments which it is to house. Lecture-rooms and laboratories for Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Geology occupy its four stories. There are store-rooms galore, photographic dark-rooms, a beautiful vivarium, a sky-lit geological museum, besides many other details beyond the compre- hension of those of us who have labored through our scientific courses in the old Science Hall, whose appointments seem now so meager by comparison. This building is named in honor of Colonel and Mrs. Robert J. Lowry, of Atlanta, who have perpetually endowed it in memory of their son, Edwin Markham Lowry. But these material additions to our plant are by no means all that we of 1911 have the honor of recording. True to its policy of constant advance in educational lines, Agnes Scott has moved forward within the year proportionately in the reorganizing and broadening of the curriculum. Two professors have been added to the Departments of Physics and Biology respectively, and one to the Department of History and Sociology; the Department of Bible and Philosophy has been placed upon a separate endowment basis, " The George W. Scott Memorial Foundation; " two entirely new Departments have been created. Theoretical Music and Home Economics; while new instructors have been added to various departments. Probably no other Southern college can show so great progress within so short a period. The recounting of these improvements makes our hearts burn with pride and with regret: pride in an Alma Mater so glorious, and regret that we must pass out from her halls just at the dawn of her greater era. But we shall watch her progress with joy ; and as the years go by, we know that we shall see her ideals of life and her standards of scholarship dominant throughout our beloved Southland. M ite " Are you going to the wedding? " " No. " " Why not? " " Haven ' t anything to wear. " Have you ever heard the foregoing answer to the foregoing question? Maybe so and maybe not. At any rate, it had no place in the conversation prevalent before the wedding which took place Saturday night, November twenty-first, nineteen hundred and ten, in the Agnes Scott Gymnasium- This conversation sounded rr.o: e like th:s: " Going to the wedding? " " Yeah. " " What you going to wear? " " Haven ' t decided yet, but do you think a coffee-colored lace waist with a blue linen skirt, tan stockings and black shoes would do, with a red bandanna around my waist and a pink bow at my neck? " and so an interesting discussion would ensue, a dis- cussion of colors and contrasts and combinations. As you may have already guessed, the eventful and much discussed wedding was a tacky wedding, with tacky observers, tacky decorations, tacky pianist, tacky soloist, tacky participants and — far be it from me to ever sap such a thing, but a tacky bride ! The soloist gowned charmingly in Paris ' best purple and red lace, with a coiffeur wonderfully original and — startling — rendered most touchingly that tenderest of songs, " I Love You Truly. " And then followed those lovely, but nerve-racking, strains of Mendelssohn, and following the strains of Mendelssohn, the bridal party! Maybe the preacher was im- pressive; the bride, happy; the groom, proud; the bridesmaids, beautiful; the grooms- men, handsome, and the flower girls cute — " maybe they were, but I doubt it. " After the s-w-e-e-t ceremony, in which the groom was betrothed to the bride as " crush " for life, and rash promises about darning and getting up laundry and " Jaxon treats " were taken and given, the wedding ended in a grand march — a grand finale if vou prefer the word — in which the tacky observers joined. rfkm dim ATHLETIC OFFICERS Theodosia WlLLlNCHAM, President Sadie Goeer, Vice-PresiJent Hannah Frater, Secretary-Treasurer TENNIS CLUB LOUISE VAN DYKE, President MEMBERS Hazel Rogers Bessie Thomas Madge White Julia Pratt Smith Eleanor Coleman Erma Montcemery Zelma Allen Grace Harris Ruth Hicks Mary Piftard Alla B.

" Athletics holds a very important place in every college and this year there has been more interest demonstrated at Agnes Scott than ever before. The athletic department has been organized with a president and secretary and treasurer. This department includes basket-ball, as well as the three clubs of tennis, hockey and baseball. A silver cup is to be presented to the class team that proves itself to be cham- pion in the hotly-contested games of basket-ball. Besides this, the tennis tournament to be held here in the spring is looked forward to with great interest. Baseball, with Mr. Johnson as coach, is an innovation at Agnes Scott, but the girls have entered this new field of athletics with their usual zest. Next year we intend to add to our list that of fencing. Thus, year by year, at Agnes Scott we intend to make more of that important factor of all college life, athletics!
