Today the final product has been put into your hands to meet with your approval or to undergo your criticism. We have made a concerted effort to combine our ideas, our wit, and our energy to put forth a volume which will be pulled from the shelves in future years to add shape to memory ' s pictures of " the good ole days. " By then we shall have forgotten our thrill over being among the first colleges to use natural color photography, but these pages will bring back glimpses of brighter hours. May - ' ■our contribution to your four-volume set of annuals sue- ceed in giving you a complete, an interesting, and an authentic record of your college career. Th erne Every year out of that most idealized city of cities called Hollywood rolls endless miles of film telling stories, dra- matic and humorous, concerning every phase of human interest. Thinking of our life here at Agnes Scott as a series of ever-changing scenes varying from moments of deepest discouragement and keenest disappointment to the heights of pleasure and fulfilled ambitions, we have noticed the resemblance to the variety of experiences and emotions portrayed in lasting form on the silver screen. Following this idea, we have divided the activi- ties of the year into four sections, each of which is to be covered by one reel of film. It is our wish that after you have viewed the four reels which follow, you will have the complete picture of the various activities on this campus in the year 1939 — a pictorial record of Agnes Scott seen through the camera ' s eyes. With this end in mind production got under way with the release date set for the end of May and there was a scurry of activity as the order was given: Lights! Action! Camera! r = 65907 JJedication Her spirit will pervade the campus for years to come, while those who knew her will treasure the memory of her throughout a lifetime. The embodi- ment of the Christian ideals of faith, hope and charity, she was loved by all and unconsciously exerted an influence upon fifty generations of stu- dents. In a quiet, unassuming manner she accom- plished wonders, for she was guided by one idea — the improvement of Agnes Scott College. We dedicate the 1939 SILhHOUETTE to the memory of MISS NANNETTE HOPKINS PREVIEWS REEL REEL 2 L L e G G f] c TW LETICS REEL 3 REEL 4 FEATURES COLLE( E Reel I J til tuck ■m m .

Always occupied, but never too busy for a quiet chat with the students, he welcomes all to his office. This year a special effort was made to meet the freshmen, and the new- comers were delighted to have the opportunity of talking in pri- vate with him the opening week of school. Dr. McCain has been chosen as president of the Southern Univer- sity Conference and is chairman of the committee on Standards of the Southern Association of Col- leges and Secondary Schools. Since he is reticent about acknowl- edging his honors, we cornered his secretary and learned that he is a member of the advisory committee of the General Education Board of New York, is a senator of the United chapters of Phi Beta Kappa, and has been elected Pres- ident of the Beta chapter of Geor- gia. The movement toward the university center in Atlanta is also demanding his attention this year. Cary Wheeler, senior class president, drops into the Dean ' s office to discuss Founders ' Day plans with Miss Scan- drett. Dean of Women is a formidable title, but Miss Carrie Scandrett ' s sense of humor and personal interest in every girl are responsible for the waiting line to be found outside of her office at any hour. Equally ready to hear tales of woe or the high lights of last night ' s date, she has the ability to be a perfect listener and to draw out the most timid freshman. Taking over the heavy responsibility of keeping five hundred girls happy and of urging them on to higher attainments. Miss Scandrett deserves praise for her work this year. Miss Charlotte Hunter and Mr. S. G. Stukes meet in the daily routine of ad- ministration affairs. Miss hHunter has won a following of student admirers in her first year back at her Alma Mater. Mr. Stukes is registrar of the school and dean of the faculty. The conversation turna to dollars and cents when Mr. R. B. Cunningham and Mr. J. C. Tart get together. Mr. Cun- ningham is the shrewd business man- ager, known for his keen sense of humor and his willingness to stop on the quad- rangle for long chats with the students. Mr. Tart, quick-witted and energetic, is efficiency personified in his dealings with patrons of the bank. K LLinnj ej at tlie := acititi SCHUVLER M. CHRISTIAN . . .

Starting with views last spring and ending with May Day, Ad Benson, Mutt Fife, and Lutie Moore could be seen tearing across the quadrangle at almost any hour chas- ing down more pictures. Through the combined forces of a capable staff, we were finally able to make heads or tails out of the accumulated mass of photo- graphs and material and were convinced that we might have an annual after all, in spite of our first doubts on the subject.

F. S. A. STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION MARY ELLEN WHETSELL President CAROLYN FORMAN The year ' s work of the Executive Committee got off to a fast start with a retreat at the recently acquired Harrison hlut. Here on the week-end before school opened, it decided to base the nine months ' program on the fourth ideal as stated in the handbook, which deals with " the development of charming personalities, with such qualities as attractive appearance, poise, dignity, restraint where proper, frankness, simplicity and avoidance of extremes. " Miss Hale handled the subject beauti- fully in a chapel talk in September. At a later date Walter Paschal, news commentator for the Atlanta Journal, discussed " Keeping up with the world " as that part of the fourth ideal which Lou Pate, student treasu Ruth Eyics, assistant treas the financial braintrustcrs. includes the " maintaining of an educated and rational viewpoint toward the social and economic world of today. " Under the direction of Emma McMullen, freshman orientation got under way as junior sponsors acquainted their protegees with the aims and ideals of Agnes Scott and dashed them off to the round of teas and receptions. hHarriet Stimson directed Honor Week in November with speakers selected from the faculty, the alumnae, and the student body. During the Christmas holidays Mary Ellen Whetsell and Henrietta Thompson attended the N. S. F. A. annual convention held this year at Purdue University in LaFay- ette, Indiana. At this time Mary Jeanne McKay was re- elected as the National President of the organization and later in the year the campus was honored with a visit from her. During the spring strains of " Deep Purple " or " My Heart Belongs to Daddy " could be heard flowing from the Murphy Candler Building for Student Government sponsored the purchase of a new RCA Victor with all of the latest records. The building has turned into a jitter- bug paradise. In April the 18th Annual Congress of the Southern Federation of College Students and Publication Repre- sentatives was held in Charleston, South Carolina, with the Citadel cadets as hosts. Mary Ellen Whetsell was chairman of the woman ' s division and was accompanied by Henrietta Thompson and Carolyn Forman. ' Jlu CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION DOUGLAS LYLE Beginning the year with a new name and a broader organiza- tion, the Christian Association united the religious forces of the campus in an effort to strengthen the spiritual life of the students. The theme for the year was, " I am come that they rresiaent might have life and that they might have it more abundantly. " Programs and activities had the common aim of finding the abundant life for ourselves and for all people through a growing knowledge of God. The cabinet and the newly created council led the activities to pro- mote development toward " the abundant life. " Under the leadership of Henrietta Blackwell spiritual growth was encouraged by daily morn- ing watch services and the new student-published devotional booklet. Weekly chapel prog rams with faculty and outside speakers were directed by Jane Moses, who also arranged for musical programs. This year Dr. John McSween of Chester, South Carolina, was invited to hold the week of special services.

Grace Ward ' s Social Service Group worked with local wel- fare organizations and gave a Christmas party for Decatur poor children, directed by Selma Steinbach. The Mission Interest, with Sam Olive Griffin as Chair- man, did a commendable piece of work in the Syrian Chapel in Atlanta. They were fortunate in hearing several mis- sionaries speak, including our own. Miss Emily Winn, who was on furlough this year. Tine Gray managed all teas, picnics, and parties for students and visitors. Betty Alderman informed the cam- pus through monthly bulletins about our work and plans, and Grace Walker kept us in contact with national V. W. C. A. Freshman and sophomore cabinets, headed by Anne Chambless and Betty Kyle, helped to carry out the search for the abundant life. ALDERMAN BLACKVVELL GRAY GRIFFIN HUGHSTON MOSES WALKER WHETSELL WARD MORTAR BOARD Our Hoasc chapter of the National Mortar Board is one of the integrating forces for campus organizations, for it is comprised of seniors elected on the basis of outstanding leadership, scholarship, and service. In Sep- tember at the retreat at Harrison hlut en- thusiastic plans were made for a service pro- gram. The highlight of the year and the ma)or project was the $40,000 campaign led by Amelia Nickels and Dr. Davidson, which exceeded ail expectations. There were dates from Emory and Tech and the Seminary and good times in store for freshmen and sopho- mores at the December and January parties. After the Junior Banquet coffee was served in the Murphy Candler Building before the Blackfriars ' play drew the crowd to the gym. A social usage test taken by the majority of the student body stirred up heated discus- sion and showed the need for study in the rules of etiquette. Marriage classes for sen- iors were enthusiastically supported in the spring. Mortar Board had a gay week-end in Athens when they went to participate in the installation of the Parthenian chapter at the University.

Although the membership is composed of all who are interested, the new constitution drawn up this year states that the officers are required to be Bible majors or minors. The faculty advisors, Mrs. Alma Sydenstricker and Dr. J. T. Gillespie, lend their influence in obtaining well-known speakers for the monthly meetings of the club. Two of the visitors have been Mr. Toni Moto, Emory Theological student, and Miss Emily Winn, Agnes Scott ' s mission- ary to Korea, who is in the United States on furlough. Often instead of formal addresses, there are informal talks on subjects pertinent to the group. The January, February, and March meet- ings featured a series of stimulating discussions on " Faith, hHope, and Love, the Triad of Life.

Talent is developed at the monthly meetings where one act plays are directed and participated in by the students. Ordi- narily the club is able to present three major plays for the public, but this year there were five. The Blackfriars ' season started with the hit production " Stage Door " by George Kaufman and Edna Ferber. The cast included thirty persons among whom Jeanne Flynt, Susan Goodwyn, and Evelyn Sears handled the leading roles superbly. The night of the Junior Banquet was climaxed by Evelyn Baty ' s excellent translation from Spanish of Sierra ' s " Dream of an August Night. " Jeanne Flynt, Alice Adams, Laura Sales, Evelyn Sears, and Helen Moses were the principal characters. " The Green Vine " was chosen for the spring play in which Laura Sales, Margaret Hopkins, Evelyn Sears, and Helen Moses had the leads. " Just Women " was presented for the purpose of rais- ing funds for the college campaign. " Bridal Chorus " was put on by the Blackfriars alumnae at commencement as part of the semi-centennial celebration.

Z Henrietta Blackwell, president, relates an amusing incident from a new short story to Cornelia Willis, secretarytrcasurer. It is quite obvious that B. O. Z. acquired its name from Dickens ' nom de plume, and that the group is made up of students who are interested in creative writing. What is less obvious to the casual campus observer is the true value of this small organization. Con- crete evidence of its work may be found in every issue of the Aurora, the quarterly literary magazine. The club is proud of the work of its alumnae and is basking in the reflected glory of Evelyn Hanna, author of Blackberry Winter. The writing of the members is not confined to one field, for plays, essays, short stories, and monologues roll off their pens with seemingly equal facility. These literary endeavors are read and criticized at the meetings through the discussions of the members and Miss Janef Preston, fac- ulty advisor. Girls in B. O. Z. find that they acquire standards of criticism which help them in judging the works of other writers as well as their own.

The membership is com- posed of science majors whose work has met a high scholarship requirement. Elections are held twice a year and the events are celebrated at a banquet in the fall and a picnic in the spring. Dr. Justin Andrews, Assistant of Protozoology at Johns hHopkins, and Dr. Kracket, Professor of Medical Technology at Emory, were among the interesting speakers participating in the pro- grams this year. During the Christmas holidays a convention was held at Ashland, Virginia, at which the Society undertook to revise their constitution. The two changes made at the time which most affected the Agnes Scott chapter included the dropping of the last Greek letter Sigma from the name of woman ' s division, and the adding of psychology as a field for membership.

This is the privilege which Cotillion Club enjoys every other Thursday. At the meetings several girls serve as hostesses and do their part in providing an hour or two of entertainment that will push books into the background for a while. Cotillion Club sponsors the two big dances of the year at Thanksgiving and Founders ' Day on February 22nd with music furnished by local orchestras.

CURRENT HISTORY FORUM Current History Forum is a comparatively new group on the cam- pus for it was formed only last year by the uniting of International Relations Club and the Citizenship Club. In carrying out its aim, that of the creation of intelligent understanding of current affairs, the meetings feature open forums and outside speakers. The group has covered a range of activities this year. It pre- sented radio programs on which Miss hiarn. Miss Smith, and Dr. Davidson spoke. It assisted Emory and Georgia Tech in sponsor- ing the Institute of Citizenship, and it sent Elinor Tyler as the dele- gate to the Southeastern Division of I. R.

The campus is fortunate to be able to include this national honor society in its ranks. Miss Lewis was chosen as one of the guest speakers for the year to lecture on " Classical Art. " The freshmen who were inter- ested in the classics were entertained at a tea in October. Miss Annabel hlorn, teacher of Latin at Atlanta Girls ' High School, also spoke during the year. Plato and Aristotle might have been a trifle bewildered to see their followers banqueting at the Candler hlotel and chatting about the latest song hits. Eta Sigma Phi mem- bers thrive on their share of social life as well as on enlightening talks on philosophy. After the banquet the members were glad of the opportunity to hear Dr. Evangeline Papageorge of Emory.

The Agnes Scott French Club boasts of its affiliation with the National Alliance Francais, which is known through- out the entire country for its work. This year the group has been exceptionally fortunate in having the exchange student from Grenoble, France, Jeannette He ' renger, as a member. Miss Phythian, who has just returned from two years ' study in France, has done much toward making the meetings interesting and instruc- tive. In November the new members were welcomed with a picnic supper at hiarrison hlut. The Guignol Punch and Judy show is as quaint as France itself, and is an annual event anticipated with enthusiasm. At the March meeting, before Andre Maurois appeared on the campus, Mon. Courtois, Atlanta representative of the French Line Company, spoke to the club about the famous biographer.

The campus is particularly aware of the organization at Christmas, for the approach of the season always brings Miss Ham ' s party with its candle-lighted tree and German cakes and cookies. The night before the holidays the group adds to the Yuletide spirit by going from dormitory to dormitory singing German carols. Several of the meetings have been made unusually interesting by the presence of native Ger- mans. At one time the girls visited at the home of Frau hleege, an honorary member. Dr. Adolphe Lapp, who recently came to this country from Bavaria, talked on European conditions.

Under the training of Mr. Johnson, the College Choir, with over a hundred voices, pre- sented an annual concert with an impressive program of carols and Christmas music. 1 T 1 Jeannette Car, II, vice •pre ident; Vi gin 7 " " Kyle, p:e sident Annie He uston Ne wtc n. business tianag er; Sara M .Cain, libr jria n; Betty Kyle , seer tary-trea sure ; rehe arse for a chapel pre gram The Glee Club centers its interest in the presentation of a Gil- bert and Sullivan opera. This spring it gave " The Gondoliers, " at the Atlanta Woman ' s Club, as well as on the Agnes Scott campus. The Special Chorus, which is a group made up of carefully selected voices, is kept busy filling requests to sing at banquets and meetings in Atlanta. This year the Agnes Scott College Choir was in charge of one of the Sunday afternoon pro- grams in the series of musicals presented at the Atlanta City Auditorium.

B., the journalistic organization, is one of the largest and most active clubs. Regular meet- ings are held once a month in the Murphy Candler Building with Miss Christie acting as advisor. At one meeting Dr. Davidson spoke on " The History of the American Press. " Later James Pope, of the Atlanta Journal staff, discussed " The Foreign Situation and the Press. " In April the mem- bers went on a tour of the Journal plant where they saw the principles of journalism, which had been dealt with in meetings, put into operation. K. U. B. does not confine its activities strictly to journalism, but branches off three times a year into the social world. In the fall it entertains with a reception for the freshmen who are in- terested in literary work. In December there is a Christmas party, and in May the activities are wound up with a luncheon in Atlanta. K. U. B. is responsible for the home town newspaper reports of its Agnes Scott students, for the club has assumed the function of being campus re- porters to keep the local newspapers well informed. Reports of extra-curricula activities are sent twice a year and on special occasions. Members: Standing: Mary Louise Dobbs, Eleanor hlutch- ens, Sara M. Lee, Jean Dennison.

Lecture Association lays final plans for the Maurois lecture anc LECTURE ASSOCIATION Lecture Association, made up of a faculty committee led by Miss Laney, and of a student com- mittee headed this year by Kathleen Kennedy, keeps the campus in contact with notables of world wide fame. This year has been outstanding in the history of the organization, for it has brought three splendid speakers to the campus. Dr. Edgar Goodspeed, noted Bible scholar, started the season November tenth with his talk " Four Hundred Years with the English Bible. " In February, Maurice Hindus spoke to a spellbound audience on the state of affairs in Czechoslovakia. Andre Maurois, who has been widely acclaimed for his biographies, was the final speaker of series. He discussed " French Wit in English and American Humor. " After each lecture the students and Atlanta visitors had the opportunity of talking to the famous personalities at receptions held in the Murphy Candler Building.

PEN AND BRUSH CLUB Artistic talent is given a chance for expression in the congenial atmosphere of Pen and Brush Club. hHere hidden talents are brought forth, and practice in sketching and painting results in adnnirable material for display at the end of the year. It is through the work of this organization that the campus is kept art-minded. The meetings, which are held twice a month, are open to every- one and are well worth attending. During the year Mr. Roton of the Constitution spoke on " The Various Types of Newspaper Pho- tography, " Miss Lewis lectured on " Modern Art " ; and on one occasion Miss Abel, known under the pen name of Lanier Bradfield, was the guest of honor. At other meetings the group sought out natural settings in the woods as subjects for their sketches. In the spring the college community had the opportunity of seeing the tangible result of the efforts of Pen and Brush Club, for there was an exhibition in the library of the members ' own work. hHere we were grateful for the chance to admire the paintings of the group displayed to advantage.

Under the capable direc- tion of Dr. George P. hHayes, the group debates a large number of outside teams as well as opposing sides within the club. This year the Agnes Scott team composed of Marjorie Merlin and Margaret Hopkins opposed William Beers from Dublin, Ireland, and Tom Williams from Cardiff, Wales, on the subject, " Resolved that the British Empire is an obstacle to world peace. " The English debate is fast growing into an annual event that is looked forward to with keen expectancy among the students. This year for the first time Agnes Scott sent delegates to the tournament held at Baton Rouge, at which all of the southern states were represented. From Baton Rouge Margaret Hopkins and Mar- jorie Merlin went to New Orleans to encounter Sophie Newcomb. It has always been evident that Agnes Scott teams were formidable opp onents for anyone, but the custom, inaugurated this year, of having decision debates verified the fact. The success of the group in outside debates may be largely attributed to the excellent practice received in the meetings. This year a tournament was held within the club with faculty members acting as judges. Members: Marjorie Merlin, Beatrice Piassick, Arlene Steinbach, Ernestine Cass, Helen Moses, Margaret Lentz, Jane Taylor, Margaret Hopkins, Leiia Carson, Mary Louise Dobbs, Katherine Patton, Mary Frances Guthrie, Mary Madison Wisdom, Ann Henry, Virginia Milner, Doris Weinkle.

Poetry Club enjoys te POETRY CLUB Life at Agnes Scott may be busy and scheduled, but it is not too packed for some talented few to meet once a month at Miss Laney ' s apartment to read and discuss their attempts in the realm of poetry. Sometimes the verses receive the searching comment, " But is it poetry? " ; but, often there is hard earned and greatly appreciated praise from Miss Laney and the group. The club ' s chief function is that of encouraging creative writing of verse, but at the meet- ings the members learn much about standards of criticism which will give them a keener appre- ciation of poetry after their college days are over. We see tangible evidence of the work of the Agnes Scott Muses in every issue of the Aurora, sometimes in translations from Latin and Greek poets, but usually in original verses.

The club is unusually fortunate in having as its faculty advisor Miss Melissa Cilley, who has spent several years in Spain, teaching in Madrid and studying the customs and habits in the picturesque country. She has brought back costumes, games, and ideas which have made the monthly meetings a source of entertainment and educational value. This year there was a Spanish peasant supper down at hiarrison Hut, and at Christmas the group enjoyed a party with " fortune cake " and " piriata. " One of the meetings had its serious side as the club sponsored a tea for Teresa Palmies, a Spanish student who has been traveling in this country to raise funds for the orphaned civil war victims. Miss Lewis gave an enlightening talk on Spanish art later in the year. nt; Sara E.

STRING ENSEMBLE String Ensemble was organized six years ago by Mr. C. W. Deick- mann, and the group has won acclaim under his able direction. It has the unique distinction of being the only unorganized club on the campus, for attendance is entirely voluntary. Anyone who enjoys playing a string instrument may receive the benefit of prac- tice and instruction under Mr. Deickmann, who not only arranges most of the orchestrations used by the String Ensemble, but often composes delightful pieces of his ov n for them to play.

It is the aim of A. A. to encourage each girl to strive for " physical efficiency, scholar- ship, good fellowship, and sportsman- ship. " This is done by making the A. A. calendar vital as well as interesting to each student. The Association started out the year with a bang when it held the most spec- tacular fair that Agnes Scott has ever had the opportunity of attending on the campus. Colorful booths and ex- citing games drew crowds, flags waved in the breeze, the hockey field was littered with paper streamers and pink emonade and candied apples were much in evidence. A barrel formed the entrance, so faculty and all were forced to get down on their hands and knees to gain admittance to the brilliant array inside of the ropes. The old and new sport fashion show, the bingo boards, the merry-go-round, and the jitterbug exhibit ending in a campus-wide Lam- ASSOCIATION beth Walk were only a few of the at- tractions. This year A. A. decided to pep up campus dates. Several open houses were sponsored with everyone conn- peting at badminton, ping-pong, bowl- ing, darts, horseshoes, or at bridge for those of the less athletic natures. Jane Dryfoos reports that on the opening night the freshman classes of Agnes Scott, Emory and Tech were the honor guests. G. A. F. C. W. met at Agnes Scott this year for a big birthday party with Virginia Milner presiding as president. This organization was founded on our campus in 1930 through the efforts of Miss Wilburn. Invitations to the final Athletic Asso- ciation banquet, held in May, were is- sued to members of sport clubs, class teams and May Day participants. At this time the retiring Board turned their duties over to the I 939- 1 940 Board and awarded the yearly trophies. The ban- quet marked the perfect ending of a great year and the fresh beginning of another. I OUTING CLUB Outing Club specializes in week-end trips and out-door suppers and breakfasts.

TENNIS CLUB With the approach of spring tennis club fans find it hard to resist the temptation of perfect weather and inviting courts. Regular nneetings are held once a week as the members challenge each other to hard-fought games. The faculty are often seen on the courts in the midst of a fast set, and several times a year Atlanta guests find that Agnes Scott offers keen competition. The club, under the direction of Mary Nell Taylor, sponsored a fall doubles tournament, and in the spring the campus championship was decided in the singles combat.

The Faculty-Student g HOCKEY, KING OF Friday afternoon hockey games aroused keener excite- ment than usual with well-matched teams fighting hard for the championship while the gallery tried valiantly to out-yell the freshmen. The 1938 hockey season will be remembered for the close games and also for the lack of the proverbial rains which usually cause such upsets of plans. The junior class came out of the season ' s battles un- defeated, and for the second consecutive year won the coveted purple and white banner, while the soph- omores ran a close second. As a reward for her out- standing spirit and skillful handling of stick and ball. Dusty Hance was presented the hockey stick, awarded annually to the most deserving sophomore. ■- ' " " " ' " ' -P-t triumph. AUTUMN SPORTS The inter-class games displayed true skill and real spirit, but the climax of the season came with the Faculty-Student combat. This well-attended game was enlivened by the spectacular runs made by Dr. Davidson and Dr. Hayes and the vigorous attempts of Dr. McCain to defend the goal against the student onslaught. The spirit of the student team led by Dryfoos and Milner was too much for the opposition and the final score rested 2- 1 in their favor. During the freezing fall weather the teams ap- preciated the newly acquired long wool suits that looked cute but felt better.

The memorable varsity-sub-varsity game of March third offered a little last minute excitement in the athletic line before the demands of exams pushed gym activities into the back- ground for two weeks. In one of the fastest and closest games in many years, the varsity fought valiantly to snatch the game from their fighting opponents. At the half the sub- varsity was in the lead, but the dis- mayed varsity rallied and after a furious battle piled the points up to a final 36-29 in their favor. Those in the balcony were able to catch glimpses of flashes of white as Dot Webster streaked past ex- hausted guards to add to the mount- ing score. In a game that will go down in the annals of basketball his- tory, each member of both teams distinguished herself through skillful and lightning-fast playing. ..non.: Get that ball! ■ 1 32 - On tlu HARDWOOD Managers Webster, MacGuire, Dyar, and Carson are sociable before the battles start.

A WORD ABOUT WATER SPORTS Agnes Scott swimmers are not to be daunted by cold weather for in winter and spring alike plunge period is always open to the hardiest. Those who wish to get rid of that " stuffy feeling " after an afternoon in the library can strike out to the gym to perfect their crav l or to work on diving form. In the fall Swimming Club sponsored two meets in which the main events were the forty-yard dash, relays in form swimming, and diving. In both meets the juniors splashed to victory winning first place. In the first meet of the season the sophomores came in second with the freshmen following a close third, but the second meet re- versed this position. The diving event was won by Julia Moseley. During the second quarter the club featured a water pageant taken from the Greek myth of Daph- nis and Chloe. Virginia Milner as Daphnis and Beryl hHealy as Chloe were the two lovers who were parted by the wiles of the devil and his imp, Jeannette hieranger and Carolyn Forman, but were happily reunited in the end. The formation swimming brought cheers from the gallery. Members of the life-saving class, under the in- struction of Miss Mitchell, worked hard and as a result are proudly displaying Red Cross badges signifying their achievement.

Riding has won such popularity that the classes could not accommodate all who felt the call of the trail. With envious eyes we watched the equestriennes leave for the Bilt- more Riding Academy, although they commented later on the after- noon fun in a rather " stiff " manner. Archery brought out its usual spring following and a fast tourna- ment was waged as the class com- peted for the championship. The Badminton tournament caused a sensation as Ann Fisher and Roberta Ingles fought valiantly to wrest the championship title from Frances Spratlin and Jean Dennison, who proved to be close competition. aftcrr indue Etbelyn Dyar and Ann Fishcf congratulate Mary Nell Taylo and Helen Carson, tde winners of the doubles tournament Ou COURT GREEN a.J TRAIL Tennis has always brought out swarms of fans in the fall and spring quar- ters. Only the rigors of winter weather and the condition of the courts keep this group inside during the short winter season. At a closely matched tournament last fall, a large gallery watched Helen Carson and Mary Nell Taylor bring the tennis doubles tournament to a smashing close, defeating Ann Fisher and Ethelyn Dyar. The singles tournament was held in the spring quarter. Every year Mr. Sargent and Miss Wilburn are a little overwhelmed at the vast number of aspiring golfers who turn out to develop their skill in " ten easy lessons. " Beginners learn fundamental strokes on the hockey field as they think of that long awaited day when they can mix with the advanced group at Forest hiills. Miss Wilburn dri down the fairwa CALLING ALL STARS Those who wished to deve lop the aes- thetic sense were included in Mrs. Lapp ' s class in natural dancing. Garbed in gaily colored flimsy costumes, individual inter- pretation was stressed as the girls danced to the strains of Chopin and Tchaikowsky waltzes. The largest class on the campus was Miss Dozier ' s social dancing, for the op- portunity to learn the Yam, the Rhumba, the Tango, and the Lambeth Walk was too appealing for sixty or so girls to pass by. This year the usual interest in modern dancing was augmented by the attractiveness of the new costumes, in- troduced during the winter quarter. Working on difficult steps, the class suc- ceeded in perfecting striking formations. Folk dancing brought out the usual number who wished to develop grace, reduce, or spring the steps on astonished admirers. Always willing to keep up with the latest developments.

As May the sixth approaches with meetings to work out intricate dance routines, develop the plot and make the costumes, the group finds its hands full. With such preliminaries over as the holding of the election for the queen and her court and the selection of a scenario from contributions by the students, the real work begins. This year the Committee did a brilliant piece of work on a program based on " Orpheus and Eurydice.

The campaign started off with a bang at a luncheon given for the entire college community with skits, speeches, and music all doing their part toward working ud enthusiasm for the forthcoming drive. As the campaign continued through four tense days packed with excitement and suspense, every student did his share toward raising the sum by one means or another. Organizations went the limit and pledged every extra penny to the cause, while the faculty was the most successful of all in bringing in contributions from their own ranks.
