AGUES SCOTT COlLEliE DECATUR GEORGIA FOREWORD " I ' d rather be a Hottentot Than a tiiititi, multi-millionaire, I ' d rather be a Hottentot Than sit in the President ' s chair; It ' s the grandest place that yon ever did sec, If you don ' t believe it just come ivith me; I ' d rather be a Hottentot Than a midti, multi-millionaire. " Vivid though the incidents of college life may seem to us today, time will make them fade from our memories. It is to prevent such forgetful- ness that the staff of the 1940 Silhouette has spent its thought, effort, and time in the publication of a book which endeavors to record perma- nently the events of this year at Agnes Scott. If, as you turn the pages of this book long after graduation, you recognize familiar faces, and humming to yourself the catchy Hottentot song, you feel a nostalgic pang for the " good ole days " at Agnes Scott, the staff of the Silhouette will feel that it has achieved its purpose. aml m0ie During the first fifty years of the Hfe of Agnes Scott, a fully accredited senior college has sprung from the Decatur Female Seminary. The phys- ical equipme nt of the institution has kept pace with its educational progress, so that the staff of the Silhouette of 1940, published in a year of campaigning and of building, has chosen to interpret its material through the medium of the buildings on our campus. We can trace the history of the development of our campus from one small frame struc- ture to those which are standing now; and we can look ahead with anticipation to the day when the plans for " Greater Agnes Scott " will be realized. That day which seems remote will come eventually, for we are a college never satisfied with the present, ever looking to the future. mj .yym 1 S. K. STllKES who as Registrar of the College and Secre- tary of the Faculty has gained the full co- operation of the entire college community and has been a real stimulus to educational progress: who as a Teacher of Education and Phi- losophy has been increasingly popular be- cause of his own stimulating interest in his subjects and his willingness to accept the opinions of his students: who is the interested Friend of every Agnes Scott girl during her years at college and after her graduation, we dedicate the 1940 Silhouette. S. (;. STIIKES ' ' tents THE C L L E i; G ACTIVITIES ATHLETICS F E I T 11 R E S I A [gNES SCOTT COLLEGE, under the name of the " Decatur Female Seminary " started in 18 89 in " Allen House, " a two-story building which stood on the present site of Main Build- ing. It was later moved to its present location, doubled in size, and rechristened " White House. " When, in 1890, " Main " was built, it immediately became the nucleus of all school activities; it was dormitory, administrative building, music " WHITE HOUSE. " hall, chapel, dining hall and student activity building all in one. The construction of the $112,250 building was largely due to the in- terest and generosity of Colonel George Wash- ington Scott, the founder of the school. Such were the humble beginnings of our college that now looks forward to the near future when it will equal the great eastern schools in physical equipment.

When we think of Agnes Scott, our thoughts immedi- ately turn to Dr. McCain, its able president, just as his first regard is for Agnes Scott. His genuine interest in the college has shown itself in h is constant striving towards its educational and physical growth. That his intelligent lead- ership is recognized, not only by those who live every day on the campus, but also by business men and educators, can be seen in the number of offices which he holds in various educational organizations. He is the newly-elected president of the Association of Georgia Colleges, and a member of the executive committee of the Southern Uni- versity of Colleges. He is also a senator of the United Chapters of Phi Beta Kappa. Sincerity and simphcity are the characteristics which cause chapel programs led by Dr. McCain to be remembered long after graduation. Despite his dignity, he enters whole- heartedly, like a true sport, into the campus activities; and every faculty-student hockey game sees him holding valiantly his position as goalie; and every A. A. Fair finds him riding the merry-go-round and drinking pink lemon- ade. He is never too busy to listen sympathetically to students ' requests and problems. The President His secretary. Miss Laura Steel, is an Agnes Scott graduate of ' 37. She was prominent in campus activities as editor of the Agonistic, as the weekly publication was then called, and as a member of Mortar Board. Her present position keeps her busily occupied taking care of Dr. McCain ' s varied activities and corre- spondence. She is swamped by letters and com- petitive examination entries from prospective students. She fulfills the qualifications of an ideal secretary, in keeping both her personal and office articles in good order. Miss Smith, Miss Torrance, and Mr. Holt, as the members of the Electives Committee, are indispensable to the upperclassmen, whose credits they check and recheck to make sure that each one has completed a sufficient number of hours for graduation or class standing. Miss Smith, Miss Torrance and Mr . Holt check on those blue cards ■■ ■■ " ■■ ' ■ T R 1 T I (I i The Admissions Committee, composed of Miss Alexandeh, Miss Ciiiustie, and Miss Gaylord, functions as an advisory board to the freshmen in help- ing them select their courses. The committee keeps the high school records of all new students and is thus competent in giving them advice on the curricula suited to their individual needs. Both these committees are in their I ' espective offices every Tuesday after- noon to help the students adjust those difficulties that do crop up ever so often. Mr. Stukes shows his friendly smile for the camera. Gaylc and M.s Mk. Stukes, Mr. CuiNNINGHAM and Mr. Tart arc essential members of the administration, handling the business affairs of the college in their offices of Registrar, Business Manager, and Treasurer respectively. Mr. Stukes, as Registrar, has a great influence on the life of every student from the time of her application for entrance when he helps consider her recommendations and conduct the intelligence tests that are given her, until the time of her graduation, when he furnishes m- formation about the fields of work that are open to her. Mr. Cunningham has been especially busy this year taking care of all the campaign money that comes in and managing the plans for the new building. Mr. Tart also has an extra burden on his hands since the student budget is now paid to him along with the tuition fee, instead of being handled by the student treasurer as it formerly was. He has a brisk, businesslike, but friendly, manner that invites confidence in his ability to take care of the financial matters. ngham checking campaign returns. . . . Below: On the Inside, looking out. THE SILHOUETTE OF DEi ' OF WOMEI No MATTER WHAT TIME of day you happen to drop into the Dean ' s Office you will find several students passing the time of day with one of the Deans or finding good advice on those per- plexing problems that occur in college life. It ' s no wonder that It ' s such a popular place when we see who those capable advisors are. Miss Carrie Scandrett, as Dean of Women, contacts the stu- dents individually more than any other member of the faculty or admmistration. The smallest difficulty is never too small for her complete attention, nor is the most perplexing one too in- volved for her level head. She seems to sense our difficulties even before we come unhesitatingly to her with them. It is no wonder that there is always a waiting line outside her door. She seems to embody the four ideals of Agnes Scott and be the perfect successor for the former, beloved Dean, Miss Hopkins. Miss Charlotte Hunter is her assistant, and she is the Guard- ian Angel of the freshmen. Her friendly, informal manner and sympathetic understanding have helped to cure many a case of homesickness. Miss Hunter has joined some of the students in taking first-year German and anyone who doesn ' t think she studies her lessons faithfully ought to see her reading " Emil und die Detective. " She is also taking her horseback riding lessons very seriously. Mary MacDonald and Isabella Wilson are the other two members of the Dean ' s office faculty. They always have a welcom- ing smile ready for the people who come in and the students love introducing their dates and chaperons to them. Although Mary ' s day-time job as a secretary in Atlanta keeps her on the go, she manages to get in on some of the bull sessions with the girls in Boyd, where she lives. This is Miss Wilson ' s first year back at her Alma Mater; she was house president of Main during her senior year here. Uppe Shake r; Tim speare e out bet . . . Below conferen who constantly seek her advice matters even beyond the scope of English themes. Miss Ellen Douglas Ley- burn spends a great deal of her time this year in her new home, which was built only recently. Gardening and looking after her dog, Caroline, occupy many of her leisure moments. Perhaps it was while Miss Leyburn was a student at Agnes Scott that she began to develop the analytical and syste- matic mind for which she is so well known. The freshmen have learned much about writing themes from the de- partment ' s new member, Miss Thelma Allbright, who taught formerly at Queens ' Chicora. Her talents also extend to the realm of palmistry; if you ask her to read your palm she will entertain you with her magic knowledge and with her wit, which, upon all occasions, has already en- deared her to the campus. While in college she majored in American Lit- erature and later received her Master ' s degree in it at Duke University. The Spoken English Department is headed by Miss Frances K. Gooch, who once gave private lessons to Madame Chiang Kai-Shek at Wesleyan. Miss Gooch was formerly president of the Southern Association of Teach- ers of Speech and still attends its conventions. Her favorite actor is Basil Rathbone. % luun unwnm The English Department boasts of giving a larger number of majors than any other department on the campus. Its members undoubtedly play a large part in making it so attractive. Mr. George P. Hayes, who heads the department, spends a great deal of his spare time on the tennis courts. His love of exercise often leads him into the woods on long walks. Debating claims his attention too; he was very pleased about his trip to Chattanooga this spring, where he attended the debate convention and tournament. He is an ardent lover of classical music and is a frequenter of the music room in Main. Miss Emma May Laney keeps up with Mr. Hayes in playing tennis, and this fall she tried her hand at golf, joining a beginners ' class. Her well-planned lectures and her habit of being strongly intent on whatever she does, combined with a genuine love for her subject, make her an inspiring teacher. As advisor to the Lecture Association, she has been active in bringing many good lecturers to the campus. Miss Janee Preston ' s talent for writing poetry is evident from the fact that she has had several of her poems published in the Atlanta Ar.ijosy, an anthology of works by Atlanta poets. In them she shows her appreciative love of nature. Miss Annie May Christie keeps busy doing research work on a Southern writer. Her sympathy and ability to understand other people ' s problems make her very popular, especially among the freshmen. This year has brought Miss Robirta Winter back to the campus to assist Miss Gooch in teaching Spoken Eng- lish. During her years as a student at Agnes Scott, she was a member of Phi Beta Kappa and of Hoasc, the fore- runner of Mortar Board. She is known now as the author of Bridal Chorus, which has won recognition in the the- itrical world, and of most of the scripts for the Agnes Scott radio programs this year. She tells us that she always played men ' s roles in the Blackfriars plays. FACULTY Notebooks pile high around Mrs. Sydenstricker in May. B I B L The Bible Department helps add religious em- phasis to the curriculum and also to the outside activities on the campus, especially through the work of the Bible Club, which is sponsored by Mrs. Alma Sydenstricker and Mr. James T. Gillespie, members of the department. They have been influential in bringing several good authori- ties on religious questions to the college as guests of Bible Club, whose lectures are open to the entire college community. Mrs. Sydenstricker, who leads the department, is recognized as a leader in spiritual activities and she is frequently asked to speak at various functions in Atlanta and Decatur. She spends a large part of her summer vacations at Chautauqua, N. Y., where she is Vice-President of the Woman ' s Club, and where she studies music and art to the benefit of her classes here. She teaches the Woman ' s Bible Class in Decatur. Mrs. Sydenstricker has a scholarly interest in ancient languages and traditions, having gone so far as to do some archae- ological research in the Holy Land. She taught history before coming to Agnes Scott. She tries to have personal contact with her students by inviting them to tea at her home near the college, and by interviewing each one individually. Mr. Gillespie is not only a teacher but also a preacher. He conducts regular services during the summer in North Carolina, his native state; and, speaking of the Tar Heel State, he has a devoted love for it, especially for its mountains. He keeps a stock of funny stories about these mountains which he loves to tell while chatting with a bunch of girls from there. He spent a great deal of time this year seeing that the plans for his new white house on South Candler Street were carried out correctly. Now that it has been completed he can often be seen taking his black Scottie dog out for an airing. His class lectures are carefully planned, following closely an organized syllabus. The Old Testament by Gil F I I l ] It T N In spite of the fact that Agnes Scott does not offer .1 ni.ijor in any of the fine arts, it boasts of a well-trained faculty in both music and art, and serves to offer every student that last bit of culture that goes toward making her a well-rounded personality. Mr. Lewis Johnson, as Voice Professor, is a favorite among Agnes Scott girls, at least partly because of the delightful programs that he conducts. These include the annual operetta presented by the Glee Club and public concerts by the Special Chorus. Something else that accounts for his popularity is his own genuine interest in young people and his love of good times, including dancing. He spends week-ends with his family at his farm, which is complete with horses, cows and everything that belongs in a barnyard. Miss Evelyn Wall, with all her capability as accompanist and her good voice, is Mr. Johnson ' s " Girl Friday. " Mr. Christian W. Dieckmann is an enthusiastic lover of the piano and organ. Besides studying, playing, and teaching music, he also writes it. He composes the arrangements of the String Ensemble, of which he is the director, and he has had several of his selections published. Part of his private life is taken up by escorting his young daughter, Adele, to wild western movies and listening to mystery stories over the radio. Mr. Dieckmann is assisted in instructing piano by Miss Eda Bartholomew who performs for the public in joint recitals with him. Miss Lewis, having an artistic soul, rarely fails to transfer her love for art to those whom she teaches. She knows theory and history of art, and she is a master of it in actual painting, sketching, and draw- ing. She maintains a sort of quiet dignity in the class- room that results in an effective presentation of her material. Her part in furthering interest in art on the campus is no small one; in the spring she exhibits some of her own work with that of her students in the museum room of the library. She has also helped to make Pen and Brush an actual organization. She loves traveling, and has done quite a good deal of it. Ready, Miss Wall? are used in ove r ninety colleges. She is planning to visit South America with her mother this summer. The classical language department includes Latin and Greek, the former taught by Miss Narka Nelson and Miss Cath- erine Torrance, the latter by Miss Kathryn Click. Miss Torrance likes to read criticisms of Creek literature. Her outside interests center in flowers, with which she keeps her office supplied from her garden. Miss Nelson ' s culinary ability is famous on the campus. Miss Click seems to miss her terrier, Kate, whom she failed to bring back to school with her this year. Her chapel speech during honor week on " Honor in Academic Work " made a lasting impression on her audience and caused quite a bit of serious thinking among the students. ay to French. L4ii;iiius Languages figure widely in the courses offered on the campus. Miss Lucile Alexander, head of the French Department, is also Dean of the faculty. Being herself an alumna of Agnes Scott, she symbolizes her Alma Mater — in her scholarship, dignity, refinement, and sympathetic understanding. Miss Margaret Phythian, too, is an Agnes Scott daughter, who during her years at college showed her flare for languages by being president of Cerman Club. She returned to the campus last year after having spent two years in a village home in Crenoble, France. Miss Helen Carlson is active in the extra-cur- ricular activities on the campus as one of the faculty advisors of Christian Association. She is an honorary member of the local chapter of Mortar Board, having belonged to a similar organi- zation at Crinnell College. Miss Louise Hale has the distinction of being a member of the Faculty Committee of Lecture Association. The fact that her advice is frequently sought as authority on charm is evidence of the great influence which she exerts both inside and outside the classroom. Miss Muriel Harn, Professor of German, is one of the campus favorites. She is an authority on the literature of all ages and countries. Cooking and traveling are probably her most indulged-in hobbies. Her Christmas parties are famous, as is her collection of all kind of interesting objects from various countries. Spanish is taught by Miss Melissa Cilley, who also teaches at the University of Coimbra during the summer. The two textbooks that she has written, one in Portuguese and one in Spanish, 1 Fi PV 9 1 klVi, i i is r s I IHb f HI Germany and Spain pass the tir Agnes Scott c a T h T T E Extreme left: A matrimonial cup o( coffee. . .

Mr. Philip Davidson, the head of the depart- ment, keeps busy outside the classroom, especially now that he is engaged in writing two books, one on Southern Colonies, the other on the American Revolution. His activities include assisting in debate coaching, playing tennis, doing church work, and escorting his fifteen-year-old daughter to and from parties. He is very much in favor of free trade. Miss Florence Smith, besides carrying out her official duties of teaching History and serving on the Electives Com- mittee, is active in several local civil government groups. She is often called upon to make after-dinner speeches at banquets, and other addresses in Atlanta. Her class lectures are always well planned and clearly outlined. Her immaculately clean black Ford is just another manifestation of her orderly habits. The third member of the History Department is Miss Elizabeth Jackson, who spends a great deal of her time at- tending the meetings and helping to regulate the affairs of the A. A. U. W. She has a wide knowledge of all types of literature — historical and otherwise — and her advice is sought on all types of subjects. In teaching History she places great emphasis on the cultural side of the civilization studied. iiKk. Miss Mell, our sociologist. ™f The Economics and Sociology Department is under the care of Miss Mildred Mell, who is intensely interested in her subject. She attends sociology meetings throughout the South, and has gained recognition as an .luthority in her field. She is often seen be- hind the steering wheel of her car, for she loves to ride and usually does her own driving. She came to Agnes Scott only two years ago from her position as Dean of Women at Shorter College in Rome, Ga., but she likes Decatur so well that she has bought a house here where she invites stu- dents to visit her. in Europe thi- ,ing7 Freshmen seek advice from Miss Gaylord. The people who give out the grade MiiTH ( SCIEHE i ' ho remembers the time when she belonged to :ampus, always has a sympathetic ear to lend to be- Southe in the chemistry lab. The Mathematics Department is headed by Mr. Henry A. Robinson, who manages to find time to play in the String Ensemble and to help seniors find jobs, although he would much prefer helping them find husbands so as to increase the marriage percent. Miss Gaylord, Instructor of Math, a " Redheads ' Club " on the wildered freshmen. Chemistry, Physics, and Biology are the most popular subjects of the Science Department. Mr. Robert B. Holt, head of the Chemistry Department, is known for his constant good humor. A great deal of his time is taken up by Rotary Club activities, golf and bridge. Miss Gilchrist, besides representing the spirit of chemistry in Chi Beta Phi, likes hiking and mountain climbing. Mr. Schuyler M. Christian, physicist and astronomer, probably owes some of his wide-spread popularity to his talent for punning. He has been absent during the spring quarter, devoting his time to doing research work on the history of Southern scientists. Miss Loetta Willis came to Agnes Scott last fall as Lab Assistant but she has taken over Dr. Christian ' s work as Instructor of Physics and Astronomy during his absence. Miss Mary MacDougall is an outstanding person, not only as head of the Biology Department, but also as an author and as a leader in scientific research. Her office in the Science Building is the meeting place of many celebrities in the scientific world, for she is known internationally as a protozoologist. " Bea " Miller and Frances McCalla are the Assistant Biology Professors. " Bea " has been traveling about the country this last quarter stimulating inter- est in the development of greater Agnes Scott. " Frank " can be seen most frequently peering through a microscope at the movements of some protozoa. Her favorite pastime is hiking and she does plenty of it as a member of the Appalachian Trail Club. Mary Ellen Whetsell, ' 3 9 alumna, has a fel- lowship in Biology. She is assistant in Freshman Lab and Assistant Postmistress. Where chemists and physicists meet. A biological survey. Psychology |.V liV, r llMi am ElllCATIIIl Miss Cathi KINK Omwakk, Miss Emu.v Duxti.k, and Mn. S. Gui.kky Stuki.s m,ikc up the faculty of the Psychology Department, which includes philosophy and education, as well as psychology. Miss Omwaki; is very orderly and syste- matic and is known on the campus for the clear notes she gives. Her close friends, for some mysterious reason, call her " Mary Ann. " Her favorite topic of conversation is Mexico since her visit there last summer; in fact, she liked it so well she is planning to go there again this summer. She has done a great deal in helping the seniors choose their life work by bringing to the campus this year several career authorities. Miss Dexter ' s remarkable sense of humor makes her class one of those " never a dull moment " affairs. Her pet interest is the educational system in Georgia, about which she gets into some heated discussions. Church and reform work take up a great deal of her time also. She loves to toy with little mechanical devices, of which she keeps a large collection both in her home and in the psychology laboratory. For the love of Mr. Stukes ' popularity is due largely to his lack of formality both in class and out and to his ability to put himself in his student ' s place. He likes general discussions and encourages inde- pendent thinking and originality of ideas among the students. He has a hearty and contagious laugh that rings out at the slightest provocation, but he immediately becomes serious when the question turns to social problems, in which he shows his active interest by playing an important part in the improvement of local social conditions. y fi .i A psychological study. Mr. Stukes about to good laugh. THE LIBRIRT The Library boasts of an efficient and well-trained staff, under the able direction of Miss Edna Ruth Hanley. She IS always ready to search for any obscure fact that a student may need for her term paper, and she finds it with little difficulty. She is fond of languages, especially of German, and IS a loyal supporter of German Club in helping the members sing Christmas carols during the holiday season. She is inter- ested in architecture too, having helped design the Library, and written a book about the plans of various libraries in the United States. Miss Laura Colvin, as Miss Hanley ' s assistant, keeps the office running smoothly. She also works in the Emory Library. Miss Evelyn Houck helps make the Library the pleasant place that it is for studying. She is friendly, helpful, and popular among the students. Her constant good humor lends a light mood to the study-producing surroundings. She likes to reminisce about her college days in Alabama. Miss Mary Pennel Simonton helps Miss Houck keep up the gay part of the atmosphere. This is her first year as a member of the faculty, being a 1939 alumna of Agnes Scott. While a student at Agnes Scott she was especially inter- ested in dramatics and took part in several Blackfriars plays. Miss Agnes Reagan became a member of the Library staff this year, having completed her Library Course at Emory. Arkansas is her native state, and she was a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority at the state university. Our " hats are off " to all of our capable librarians for the good job that they do in keeping the Library a practical, pleasant work shop.

GiuLs seeking medical udvicc don ' t hesitate to go to Dr. Florence L. Swanson, who never fails to cheer up even the sickest with her sympathy, sense of humor, and stories of her native Montana mountains. She is especially interested in Psychia- try and in social problems. She has an artistic side too, as is shown in her collection of pictures that she clips from advertisements, and in the fact that she makes her own Christmas cards. She dresses neatly in becoming clothes, and she has beautiful hands. Miss Hagy, before she became the nurse in the infirmary, was a night nurse at the Emory hospital, and at one time a teacher of obstetrics at Emory. She is energetic, ambitious, always does her work well and on time, and is popular with patients. Miss Ruth Baskin assists Miss Hagy at the in- firmary. She is a Cum Laude graduate of Girls ' High in Atlanta, where she received outstanding recognition in Bible; she took her nurse ' s training course at the Grady Hospital, and is now pursuing her studies here. The Physical Education Department helps the students fill their gym requirements. The department is headed by Dr. Swanson, and the Associate Professor is Miss Llewellyn Wilburn, who spent the first part of the year contacting alumnae throughout the country in an effort to gain support for the enlargement of Agnes Scott. After her graduation from Agnes Scott she received a Master ' s degree at Columbia University. Her hearty laugh ringing out through the gymnasium helps to relieve many a girl from the worries of the classroom. Mrs. Harriette Haynes Lapp, Assistant Professor, is in charge of the dancing classes, which we see is no small job when we realize that this includes creating the dances for M ay Day, as well as regular routine work throughout the year. She is especially interested in the German language and people. It was during one of her trips to Germany that she met her husband, who is Dr. Adolphe Lapp. Miss Elisabeth Mitchell, Assistant in Physical Education, has been taking up horseback riding this year with real enthusiasm. Tennis and basketball are the special activities un der her direction. She is a star member of the faculty basket- ball team, which engages in the Brown Jug Tournament every year. Many of the dancing classes are under the direction of Miss Eugenie Louise Dozier, who is an Agnes Scott alumna. Probably her most popular class is the one in which she teaches social dancing, by showing all of the latest steps used in ballroom dancing. Miss Hagy, Miss Chapell, and Dr. Swanson check the list of patients while Moscle looks on. i wJ i L i U OFFICERS LOUISE SULLIVAN President CARRIE GENE ASHLEY . . Yice-Presideut ANNETTE FRANKLIN .

OF AGNES SCOTT IRREIIILH STUDENTS CORINNE BrITT Maria Felber Charlotte Gardner Nicole Giard HE Honorable Charles Murphey Candler for whom our student activities building was named was for forty-six years an active member of the Board of Trustees, and Chairman of the Committee and Grounds. Since he was deeply interested in the cam- paign of 1929, which resulted in the erection of the Carnegie Library, it is very fitting that the Murphey Candler Building, formerly used as the library, should be named in his honor. Where there was once t he quiet of study, the gaiety of dancing, the clicking of typewriters, and the babble of discussions now is heard. While on the spot where once stood ) est Lawn, two tennis courts, and the Infirmary, we now see the new library with its Gothic windows, slanting red tile roof, and beckoning terrace. 1 t T I f 1 T I E S ' J.L 1940 SILHOUETTE The purpose of the 1940 Silhouette is to present a panorama of the hfe at Agnes Scott during 1939-1940. Work began on this book last spring when Lutie Moore, bewildered, newly elected editor, after conferences with Miss Morgan (of Photo Process) and Mr. Young (of Foote and Davies) decided on the theme to be carried out in the book. Mr. Ware with his cameras has become a familiar sight on the campus. Early last fall he came to take the portraits, and ever since he has been on hand to record the activities of all the organizations and to preserve the memory of all the special events that have happened this year from the A. A. World ' s Fair to May Day. Work has been going on behind locked doors in Murphey Candler Building. There was copy to be written and typed, snapshots to be assorted, and letters about the " beauties " to be written between Earl Carroll and Anne Martin.

March 20, the 1940 Silhouette went to press, leaving the staff in an exhausted but happy state of mind and the Silhouette room a jumble of glue, pictures, copy, and a clutter of papers. The staff spent those next two months until the annual " came out " wondering how it was really going to look when it was all put together, and biting their tongues to keep from telling the " secrets of the press. " The Silhouette is very proud of its record as an all-Ameri- can book for the past two years. This rating is given annually by the National Scholastic Press Associations to those year- books which approach the ideal in annual publications. Repre- senting the Silhouette at the Southeastern Convention, Lutie went to Charleston last spring, and in the fall she and Nell Pinner went to Des Moines to the National Convention. Ne ; p,„„ wifing checks. 1 G I E S To SEE EVERYBODY flocking to the mail room every Wednesday afternoon is to know of the popularity of The Agues Scott News. The best way to be a well informed Hottentot is to read the paper every week, for it contains commentaries on national af- fairs as well as news of all campus activities. This year some changes were made in the management of The Agues Scott News. A new office was created — that of Managing Editor. This change relieves the editor of worry over the make-up, so that she can give all of her attention to the news in the paper. Heretofore, K. U. B. members were automatically on the staff of The Agnes Scott News, but this year they were divided into separate organizations. t T T » E W First row, left to right: Elizabeth Barret, Ernestine Cass, Martha Sue Dillaid. . . .

MARY LOUISE DOBBS Business Manager Under the Hutchens regime, the " Aggie " has featured a calendar of the week on the front page of every edition. This feature has proven to be very helpful for students and faculty, as it lists the most important events of the coming week. Another addition to the paper was the weekly fashion picture which gives the girls an opportunity to keep up with the latest styles. There is also op- portunity for the students to voice their opinions in the column called " Campus Quotes " and in editorial comment. The News is proud of its honor rating as a First Class college newspaper as judged by the Associated Collegiate Press. , A J 7 „ A II R H A Reading essays, stories, poems; cutting some and making others longer; fitting copy into a limited number of pages, deciding whether or not a certain work has universal appeal, puttering around at the printers — this is how Mary spends the weeks before each issue of The Aurora " comes out. " MARy MATTHEWS Editor lie 40 PuUlcut ' Lcn The Aurora is the only purely literary student publication on the Agnes Scott campus. College dramatists, critics, poets, essayists, and short story writers are represented in its pages. In con- tributing their work to the publication, girls gain experience while the rest of the students enjoy reading their work. The Aurora gives students an opportunity to see their attempts printed in black and white. Campus artists also have the chance to display their works in the magazine. The cover of The Aurora is designed by a student who receives a prize for her work as well as the honor of having her " brain child " used through- out the year. This year, talented Bee Shamos was the winner. First row, left to right: Sabine Brurrby, Alice Cheeserran. . . . Second row: Edith Dale, Pattie Patterson. . . .

The Aurora is published quarterly and because it endeavors to represent the whole college com- munity in a literary way it has popular appeal which causes eager reading of each issue. Besides student contributions, the faculty and alumnae have had some of their works published during the year. This year, for the first time, the Agnes Scott Aurora and the Emory Phoenix combined for a big Christmas issue. Its gay red and green cover, thickness, its stories and poems by students of Emory, and its humorous cartoons very popular on the campus.

STPEIT fiOfEHIIMEIT The ofi- ' icers of Student Government, like all other major officers on the campus, are elected by the student body by secret ballot, in the spring preceding the year they are to hold office. Henrietta Thompson . . . Preshicnf Carolyn Forman Vicc-Presh.hiit Frances Breg . Secretary Jean Dennison Treasurer HENRIETTA THOMPSON President Members of the Executive Committee of Student Government began their work early in the year with a retreat at Harrison Hut on September 16. Henrietta Thompson, President, led the group in making plans for the year. Members of the organization were ready to greet new Hottentots and start the job of orientation of freshmen when school opened on the 19 th of September. During the first few days of school, the association had charge of orientation of new students. Vice-President Carolyn Forman supervised the welcoming, direction and introduction of freshmen and transfers, and arranged the calendar of events. Sponsors received their instructions from Carolyn as to the program for the first few days. In order to introduce the freshmen and transfers to the campus leaders, a skit was pre- sented in chapel early in October. Members of the organization realized the need for new students to become acquainted with our organizations and their leaders. «hat to do during orientation. 1 ' P ' ' ' ' B Breg Denniso ASSOCIATION From October 24 to 29 was Honor Week when Student Gov- ernment presented programs in chapel. On Tuesday, four repre- sentative students spoke on Honor; on Wednesday, Dr. Gardner, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Atlanta, gave an interesting talk on the assigned topic; an alumnae who practices law in Atlanta spoke to us on Thursday about honor in the busi- ness world; Friday, Miss Click spoke and on Saturday Jean Dennison concluded the talks on Honor. In November, Student Government sponsored a series of chapel talks by Mrs. Morgan, well-known authority on social relations. Her pertinent question, " Are we acting our age? " and her practical suggestions in group discussions made her visit a long remembered one. Student Government presented a very original skit in chapel to acquaint Agnes Scotters with the evolution of our college rules. This little play made the student body realize what a long way we have come since lights had to be put out at nine and teachers were chaperons for every shop- ping expedition to Atlanta. During Christmas holidays two delegates were sent to the Na- tional Student Federation of America Convention at the Uni- versity of Minnesota. President Henrietta Thompson and Secre- tary Frances Breg were our representatives, and in chapel on January H, they reported a wonderful trip. Throughout the year Student Government takes care of the radio-victrola in the Murphey Candler Building and buys the newest swing records for jitterbugs. For those who are domesti- cally inclined, the organization keeps the sewing machine in Main in fine working condition and supervises the kitchen in Murphey Candler Building.

A FEW days before school began last September, members of Christian Association Cabinet had their annual Fall Retreat to plan the program for the year. After much consideration the theme " Thy Kingdom Come " was selected to be used as nucleus of all activities and thought this year. During the first week of school members were busy helping sponsors by meet- ing trains bringing new Hottentots, helping with registration a nd answering ques- tions. Fluffy skirts waved and voices babbled in the Alumnae Garden when the freshmen and transfers met the faculty at Christian Association ' s tea in September. During the first week in October the theme for the year ' s work was presented to student body in chapel talks. Tradition holds Tuesday chapel periods and Sunday Vesper programs for worship, supervised by a member of cabinet. The Vesper programs were devoted to the activities of young people the world over and to what they are doing to bring the ideal of the Kingdom to reality. Morning Watch was held during the winter in Miss Gooch ' s studio, but during warm weather it was conducted in the May Day Dell lovely with sparkling dew. These early morning meetings mean much to the group seeking inspiration and strength for each day. augh rinqs out in an interested group Murphey Candler building on Febr, at the iry 13.

Scottic counts the psyc logical tests !n th. an I ih pt to at am (I This year, for the first time, The Cbvhfiaii Exchauf i ' was published for the purpose of exchanging rehgious thought. It was published once a quarter under the auspices of Christian Association and was used over the campus as devotional booklet. Another of the organization ' s many activi- ties was that of sponsoring social work in Decatur and Atlanta; for the needy children of Decatur the Social Service Group gave a Christmas party complete with ice cream, cake, candy and Santa Claus. Then there is always that group of loyal girls who visits the poorer sections of At- lanta and helps with services at the Syrian Chapel. Those interested visited the Shriners ' Hospital for Crippled Children, and the Good Samaritan Clinic Day Nurseries. Various groups of the organization concentrated on making more vital their own particular aims; the Sophomore and Freshman Cabinets con- sidered how they might make their groups more necessary for the spiritual growth of girls in their respective classes. During December, Christian Association had its Winter Retreat to discuss and revaluate the work for the remaining months of the year. In January, the religious thought questionnaire was compiled and given to the students by members of Cabinet. Believing that a psychological change occurs in the student ' s attitude toward religion during the four college years, the C. A. sponsored these questionnaires to find out when and how this change takes place. Religious Emphasis Week, when an inspiring minister leads the campus in its thought and makes acquaintance with the girls, is always anticipated with pleasure. Dr. Roswell C. Long, during a week of services, made his magnetic personality felt by everyone. His discussions in chapel emphasized the integrated Christian personality; he conducted animated discussions with groups and had conferences with individuals. With the Spring, new officers were elected who, with the advice of this year ' s cabinet and with ample foresight, began plans for the next year. MflRTlR D R s Evelyn Baiy, Corresponding Secretary (Standing); Carolyn Forman, Treasurer; Sophie Montgomery, Recording Secretary; Ruth Slack, President: and Katherine PaHon, Vice-President, get together to count replies to the Freshman parties. M ORTAR Board, national honor society for senior college women, selects its members on the basis of scholarship, leadership, and service. The activities of the Agnes Scott chapter are far reaching in number and scope. Throughout the year Mortar Board sponsored many social affairs for the college community. In September, a supper hike was given for the transfers in order that they might meet other new Hotten- tots. There were several teas: one was given in March for the Day Students and their parents, one in October for Mrs. Richards, national Mortar Board secretary, and still another in June of 1939, for the graduating class. After the reunion banquet of the class of ' 39, coffee was served in the Murphey Candler Building to the yet new graduates. Affording an opportunity for Agnes Scott girls to meet Tech, Emory, and Atlanta boys, Mortar Board gave its annual series of parties for the soph- omores in November and for the freshmen in Jan- uary. There were games of all kinds, fortune tellers. First row, left to right: Evelyn Baty, Carolyn Forman. . . . Se ond row: Ma garet Hopkins Eleanor Hutchens. . . .

As is the tradition, Mortar Board entertained the Juniors and their dates at a reception after the gala junior banquet. In November members of the organi- zation helped Miss Hanley make book week a success by serving tea and cookies to faculty and students who came to browse around among the books or to spend a few quiet hours by the big cheery fireplace in the library. Feeling that Hally Hottentot needed to have her manners polished a bit, Mortar Board published a little eti- quette booklet called The Campus Code. Mortar Board has also been par- ticularly influential in increasing stu- dent interest in the splendid series of lectures brought to the campus by Lecture Association this year.

The Alpha Sigma chapter of Chi Beta Phi which was estabhshed at Agnes Scott in 1933 has the distinction of being the first woman ' s chapter of this national honorary scientific society. EhgibiHty for membership is based on active interest and scholastic achievement in any one of the sciences — Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology, Physics, Astronomy, or Psychol- ogy. Elections are held twice a year and the members, after passing a test on na- tional regulations and standards, are initiated in the fall at a banquet and in the spring at a picnic. Programs at the meetings are varied; two of the interesting speakers at the club meetings this year were Dr. O. R. Quayle, Professor of Organic Chemistry at Emory, and Cora Kay Hutchins, presi- dent of Chi Beta Phi during 1938-1939, who told the young scientists what it is like to be a research chemist.

Made up of Latin and Greek students, Eta Sigma Phi is a national honorary society formed for the purpose of furthering interest in the classics. Members enjoy the study of Latin and Greek drama- tists, and try to make each meeting recreational as well as educational. At one of the early meetings, Miss Kathryn Click gave an illustrated talk on her recent visit to Rome. The members turned their attention to the task of helping to reorganize the Emory chapter of Eta Sigma Phi. A meeting with Emory classical students at which the reorganization was planned was followed later by a dinner, when new members from Emory were initiated. The big event of the year was the formal banquet at the Candler Hotel to which alumnae mem- bers were invited for the first time. Instead of having an after-dinner speaker, a scene from a Plautine play was presented by the advanced Latin Comedy class, the players being Ruth Ann Byerly, Jane Moses, and V. J. Watkins. It was a new and diverting experi- ence for the audience to see a love scene presented in Latin. To encourage the study of Latin in local high schools, Eta Sigma Phi annually awards honorary medals to the outstand- ing student in each high school Virgil class.

C I l ] T I E $ " T 7i The Beta Chapter in Georgia of Phi Beta Kappa was established at Agnes Scott College on March 23, 1926; it was the one hundred and second chapter founded and the ninth to be established in a woman ' s college. The purpose of Phi Beta Kappa as set forth in the Constitution of the United Chapters — " To recognize and encourage scholar- ship, friendship, and cultural interests " — is in full accord with the ideals of Agnes Scott. Qualifications for member- ship include high scholarship, liberal culture and good character. Since the founding of the chapter fifteen years ago, 211 members have been elected. Elections are made twice a year, in February and in May. Girls elected to Phi Beta Kappa last February are Evelyn Baty, Ruth Eyles, Eva Ann Pirkle, and Jane Salters. In addressing initiates and the college community at the time of election, Douglas Southall Freeman, noted biographer, spoke on " Modern Trends in Biography. " Officers of Georgia Beta Chapter are: President, Dr. J. R. McCain; Vice-President, Miss Emma May Laney; Secretary, Miss Muriel Harn; Treasurer, Miss Philippa Gilchrist.

Keeping up with the changing conditions of the world is the aim of Current History Forum, the interested and active club, affiliated with the National Student Federation (known to us at Agnes Scott as N. S. F. A.). At the meetings news- paper men, professors of history, economics, and political science, and other authorities lead discussions and present perti- nent facts to the students. This year of war, declared and undeclared, and of freak treaties, has been rich in opportunity for good speakers for the club. Dr. Mose Harvey, Professor of History at Emory, talked on the problems in Europe as he saw them during his trip abroad last summer. Dr. Philip Davidson and Mrs. Roff Sims of our own faculty were also speakers on the European situation. The hostilities between Russia and Finland motivated a student-conducted meeting with reports on life in Finland. Eric Weisenberger, German student at Geor- gia Tech, talked on the history of Nazism and in a joint meeting with Pi Alpha Phi, a debate on neu- trality was held. Besides holding interesting open meetings, Current History Forum tries to keep the campus awake to international events by posting clippings from the daily newspapers on the Current History Bulletin Board in the Library.

Not in the picture is Margaret Hopkins, Vice-President. Perhaps Pi Alpha Phi boasts no silver-tongued orator or " veritable Demosthenes, " but its debat ers coached by Dr. George P. Hayes have downed teams of national and international repute. At the tournament of the Southern Association of Teachers of Speech, hold this year in Chattanooga, Margaret Hopkins and Mary Lightfoot Elcan debated the negative side, " Resolved: That the United States should adopt conscription of capital in event of war, " while Ann Henry and Marjorie Merlin handled the affirmative. The EngHsh debate which has become an annual event, brought Oxford debaters E. R. G. Heath and Peter Street to a battle of wits with Margaret Hopkins and Marjorie Merlin on the question, " Resolved: That American Foreign Policy should be one of complete isolation. " To the Strawberry Leaf Festival of Winthrop College, Pi Alpha Phi sent as delegates Mary Louise Dobbs and Doris Weinkle. Other teams encountered were from G. S. C. W., University of Florida, and University of Georgia. Practice for debating is obtained at regular meetings when members debate in their own tourna- ment with faculty members acting as judges.

G THE ' 40 j 7l B L il C K ■,:.: ie W Agnes Scott may not have a Broadway to offer the theater-minded girl, but it has a good substitute in Blackfriars, the dramatic club. Working under the expert direction of Miss Gooch and Miss Winter, members of Blackfriars come to know the ways of the theater intimately. They learn to appreciate the thrill of acting before a full house, of slaving for weeks before the big night of the play. They learn the importance of whole- hearted cooperation and hard work by the entire cast in making a play a success. The oldest club on campus, Blackfriars was organized in 1915 under the leadership of Miss Gooch, and since that time it has grown into one of the most active of Hottentot I he trans orma ron. clubs. Included in this year ' s series of programs have been one-act plays directed by Laura Sale, vice-president of the club, a make-up demonstration given by members of the Play Production Class, a talk by Miss Roberta Winter, new assistant to Miss Gooch and author of Bridal Chorm, on her experiences in the theater, a demonstration by the Play Production Class of sets to suit various types of plays, and a talk, by Miss Claire Tree Major, national founder of Blackfriars, on the Children ' s Theater. In February, Blackfriars ' Board entertained at an Open House to which various theater groups in Atlanta were invited. The Emory Players, Emory Radio Guild, Atlanta Theater Guild, as well as Blackfriars ' alumnae and men who have acted in Blackfriars plays, came to rehash theater experiences. The Emory Radio Guild, while not directly connected with Black- friars, is sponsored by members of the club and has had a real part in " Dramatic " life at Agnes Scott this year. It is to the Radio Guild and to Miss Winter that we can attribute much of the success of the Agnes Scott radio programs this year. A rental bureau for costumes and properties is another phase of work started by Blackfriars ' mem- bers this year. Blackfriars LEAVE IT TO YOU.

FIVE Ann Martin poses for a pen and brush sketching group. am iL ni OD mn Agnes Scott ' s artists are not wiry-haired eccentrics but a group of perfectly normal people who meet regularly as members of the Pen and Brush Club. Their interest is art of every age and of every type, sculpture, oil and charcoal, and meetings are planned which keep mem- bers informed of artistic development as well as give opportunities for self-expression. Sketching is one of the club ' s favorite pastimes. A model is selected and sketched by the members, some remarkable results being obtained (don ' t ask how they are remarkable). Sometimes sketching groups gather out of doors and landscape work is done. At one of the bi- monthly meetings, Claude Herndon, Atlanta artist who spent last summer in Europe, showed his collection of Italian and Greek pictures. An excursion to Atlanta ' s High Museum of Art to see an exhibit of the Silberman Galleries of Budapest and New York, proved very interesting. The collection of " Five Centuries of Painting, " included originals by such well-known painters as Michele De Matteo, Renoir, Ribot, Jan Cossiers, Hyacinthe Rigaud, and Jules Breton. :sident, and Patsy Flei portrait done by Mi :tary, discuss Betty Medlock at dashing off poste past An exhibit in the spring of all types of artistic achievement culmi- nates the year ' s work of Pen and Brush Club.

ARTS S T R I H E U E M B L E Mr. Dieckmann, Director, lifts his bato to give the signal for quiet. Like Old King Cole, the Agnes Scott community has gotten into the habit of calhng for its fiddlers, but ours is the privilege of having more than " Fiddlers Three. " String Ensemble, only unorganized organization on cam- pus, has seventeen members whose attendance at meetings is entirely voluntary. Mr. C. W. Dieckmann created the group seven years ago and has directed it ever since in an increasingly active program. This fall. String Ensemble played over the Agnes Scott Radio program; during Alumnae week-end, at the special request of returning alumnae, Mr. Dieckmann and members of the Ensemble gave a recital in chapel. The largest undertaking of the year was playing jointly with the Emory Little Symphony Orchestra the or- chestration for the Glee Club ' s light opera, lolanthc. This cooperation with Emory represents another step for- ward toward perfecting the Atlanta University Center, an ideal based on cooperation between several educa- tional institutions in Atlanta.

ARTS Workers behind the udtL LECTURE ASSOCIATION ' In celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the college, Lecture Association this year sponsored a series of brilliant lectures to which all friends of the college were invited. With the aid of the Student Budget and the generosity of the Administration it was made possible for all lectures to be free. Alfred Duff Cooper, former First Lord of the English Admiralty, opened the series with his talk on Anglo-American relationships. Giving a " lecture-recital, " Ernest Hutcheson, Dean of the JuUiard School of Music, played for a delighted audience three of Beethoven ' s Sonatas, and gave a brief, informal discus- sion of each one. In January, Douglas Southal Freeman, author of the Pulitzer prize-winning biography of Lee, talked on " Modern Trends in Biography. " Robert Frost, one of America ' s favorite contemporary poets, discussed poetry in general and read from his own Collected Poems. Harlow Shapley, Director of the Harvard Observatory, in his illustrated lecture, " Exploring Stars and Galaxies, " opened up new worlds in the sky to an interested audience. Lecture Association is made up of a faculty-student committee, Miss Emma May Laney acting as chairman of the faculty committee, and Margaret Hopkins as head of the student committee.

Affiliated with the National Alliance Francaise, French Club has as its purpose the stimulation of interest in and furthering of the students ' knowl- edge of French language, literature, and life. The theme of the programs for the year has been French culture, the club members being divided into three study groups. The Art group, headed by Marion Philips, was in charge of the February program; the Drama group, of which Ruth Kaplan was chairman, presented its program m March; the April program was conducted by the Music group, headed by Suzanne Kaulback. An outdoor supper for new members, informal discussions in French, a talk by Nicole Giard, French Ex- change student from Paris, on " Attitude of Youth in France Toward War, " were included on other programs. An unforgettable part of French Club ' s work s the annual Christ- mas caroling when members light their rustic lanterns and go all over the campus singing lovely old French carols.

In spite of the disfavor in which the Hitler regime is held in America, the German people, their customs and language, are still respected and appreciated. At Agnes Scott, members of German Club, particularly, are in- terested in Deutschland, its language and customs. The club membership is drawn primarily from students who wish to improve their conversational knowledge of the language. When one thinks of German Club, one invariably remembers the Christmas celebration, for who can forget Miss Harn ' s Christmas party or the German carols sung on the cold night before the holidays begin when the very air is tense with anticipation? Miss Harn ' s party has become a tradition. There are German cookies and cakes, innumerable polka-dot angels, a candle-lit tree which almost brushes the ceiling, a manger scene in one corner of the room, and a Christmas-tree music box which tinkles " Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht. " Going from dormitory to dormitory the night before the holidays begin to sing German carols is another Yuletide tradition annually observed. The cooperation which has existed this year between the German Clubs of Agnes Scott and Emory may bring about an even closer affiliation in the future. A study of German music, art, and literature has been taken up at the regular monthly meetings, one of the outside speakers being Dr. Adolphe Lapp, recently of Bavaria. A German Frolic, given to raise money for the College Campaign, brought faculty and students together for an evening of real fun.

The theme of this year ' s program has been the study of Spanish speaking countries. In connection with this study. Miss Omwake and Miss Harn told the club of their experiences and impres- sions during their trip through Mexico last summer. In the two subsequent meetings the relations between South American countries and the United States were considered. Joining with German Club in a Christmas party and singing Spanish Christmas Carols about the campus were also in the year ' s activities. At International Night, Span- ish Club had an unusually good exhibit, because of the generosity of Miss Cilley, club advisor, in lending the many curios and valuable objects which she collected during the years when she taught at the University of Madrid and Portugal. In order to further campus interest in our American neighbors to the South, Spanish Club sponsored the Pan-American Day celebration on April 14.

Z. to any Hottentot means a club com- posed of embryo authors whose purpose is to encourage creative writing. Only girls of talent are admitted to membership in the club, since tryouts are rigidly judged for style, originality, and sincerity. At the delightfully informal meetings, members read and criticize their own literary achievements, led in their discussions by Miss Janef Preston, faculty advisor. Valuable standards of criticism of their own work as well as that of others is thus developed. No type of prose is banned, essays, sketches, plays, and short stories being equally popular. From the writings of this group come many of the contributions to Aurora, quarterly literary magazine. Wallace Lyons entertained club members at her home for one of the regular meetings. In the Spring, B. O. Z. sponsored a unique song-writing contest to get some Hottentot ditties set to music. Betty Kyle sang the three best songs in chapel, awarding prizes to the three composers. In order to appreciate the worth of B. O. Z., one should visit them at a regular meeting, enjoy the chirm of fire-light and literary discussion, catch the spirit of sincerity and earnest endeavor for improvement which characterize the attempts of this group of creative writers.

To BE A newsp.iper woman with a career as exciting as it is in- teresting is the ambition of many a modern girl. K. U. B., Agnes Scott ' s Journalistic Club, helps to start a realization of rhis ambi- tion. Newspaper work of all kinds is the interest of the club so that it is quite natural that many of The Agues Scott News reporters are among its members. Tryouts for membership must be in the form of news articles, written in good journalistic form, and they are judged by Miss Christie, faculty advisor, and the officers of the club for style, material and interest. In order to get close contact with the large Atlanta and Decatur papers, K. U. B. works with the Journal, the Consti- tut ion, and The DcKcilh New Era in handling Agnes Scott publicity in those papers. At several meetings during the year, local reporters and feature writers were guest speakers. Betty Mathis, who had the exciting experience of handling the newspaper interviews with the Gone With the Wind stars when they visited Atlanta for the World Premiere of the much talked of picture, was one of the early speakers. Jean Chalmers, K. U. B.

LITER POETRY i; L II II J. WaUins, Prcs.dent and Pattie PaHerson, Secretary, chuckle one of the amusins short poems in the AURORA. Unique in its function is Poetry Club which satisfies the urge of poetically minded students to do creative writing. Under the direction of Miss Laney, members of this group meet primarily to read and criticize their own poetry. Con- temporary poets, however, are also read and discussed, special emphasis being placed this year on the modern school. Among the poets read were Joseph Auslander, Elinor Wylie, Edna St. Vincent Miliay, and William Carlos Williams. Prior to Robert Frost ' s visit as lecturer at Agnes Scott, Miss Laney gave a talk on his life and poetry at a meeting of the club which was open to everyone. While he was on the campus, members of Poetry Club had individual conferences with the famous poet and drank in his expert advice with eager enthusiasm. At the Spring initiation meeting, Minnie Hight Moody, well-known Georgia poet, read from her recently published book of poems. Miss Laney entertained the group in her apartment at one of the Spring meetings. Tangible evidence of Agnes Scott ' s poets can be found in every issue of the Aurora, whei-e one is sure to see contributions of Poetry C lub ranging from a light ditty about college girls ' hair to translations of Virgil.

Dancing in the Murphey Candler Building to the popular tunes of Glen Miller or Kay Kayser faithfully recorded for the victrola, munching cookies and nuts from the assortment of delicious refreshments, sipping the proverbial cup of coffee from the traditional silver urns are privileges enjoyed at regu- lar club meetings. Three or four members are hostesses at each .neeting when they have the good practice of providing refreshments, decorations, and entertainment for their little parties. At Thanksgiving, and again on Founder ' s day, Cotillion Club sponsors the big dances of the year to which the entire student body is invited. The Founder ' s Day Ball on February 22nd is one of the most colorful events of the school year. Costumed as Colonial gentlemen and ladies, a selected number of seniors go through the routine of a graceful minuet in honor of the nation ' s first president and of Scott ' s founder, George Washington Scott. The danc- ing which follows, however, to the music, this year of the Tech Ramblers, is modern enough — jazz, jitterbugging, and swing, taking the place of the Virginia reel.

This year there are over forty second-generation Hottentots who get together once a month for informal and purely social meetings. The Granddaughters enjoyed a wiener roast at Harri- son Hut, tea-parties in the Alumnae House or Murphey Candler Building, and meetings at various members ' homes. Mamie Lee Ratliff, Assistant Alumnae Secretary, serves as sponsor for the group and helps to plan its activities. Among the interesting activities of this year were the after-dinner coffee served to home-coming alumnae after their banquet during Alumnae NS eek-end in October, visits with the Decatur Alumnae Club, and the presentation of a play, entitled " Daughters and Granddaughters, " which was broadcast over the Agnes Scott radio program. The highlight of the year is always the long awaited Spring Banquet, which is held in a downtown hotel, with the members decked out in crisp new dresses and dates in their ever popular tuxedos.

Oi I i;ring Lin opportunity for intensive Bible study, Bible Club plays a real part in the spiritual life of the campus. The theme for the year, which is the same as that of Christian Association — " Thy Kingdom come: within, without " — was the basis for the program series. Dr. M. McH. Hull, head of the Atlanta Bible Institute, spoke on " Greek Exegesis " ; Dr. Alvin Hardie, former missionary to Brazil, talked of the opportunities for Christian activity in Brazil. Also speaking at club meetings were Mr. Montgomery, authority on Chinese mission work, and Dr. Gutzke, professor at Columbia Seminary. A group discussion conducted by various missionary daughters sought to inform the students of Christian development in foreign countries. By more closely affiliating itself with the work of Christian Association, by contributing to a fund for purchasing Bibles, by presenting to the college community a series of varied and interesting programs, Bible Club this year has made itself felt on the campus as never before.

FORMER GYMNASIUM , BY 192 J AGNES SCOTT had become a rapidly growing college, coming to take its " place among the leading women ' s colleges of the United States. In order to provide an adequate building program, the plans for " Greater Agnes Scott " were drawn up by Boston architects and were later revised by Atlanta architects. The first building erected according to the new plan was the Bucher Scott Gymnasium, named in honor of G. B. Scott, for many years an active member of the Board of Trustees. It was constructed with the view of using it, at least temporarily, as an auditorium. Since the Music Building with its beautiful chapel will be completed in a few months of the publication of this book, the members of the class of 1940 will be the last to receive their diplomas in the Bucher Scott auditorium. 1 T H L E T 1 f S ATHLETIC VIRGINIA MILNER President President Milner, Vice-President Carson and Secretary Fisher talk over plans for A. A. Week. Treas- urer Spratlin was busy in the Lost and Found Room. Every student at Agnes Scott is a member of Athletic Association. The aim of the organization is to furnish entertainment for the college com- munity as well as to further mterest m athletics. The activities for the year began in September with a cleverly planned and executed fair, com- plete with miniature trylon and perisphere. The program for the after- noon opened with an international presentation. There was hula-hula dancing to represent Hawaii, Chinese singing and American jitterbugging. If you were lucky enough at penny-tossing or disc-throwing, you might win a sucker or a piece of gold-tipped gum. The highlight of the fair was the aquacade, a beautiful carnival sponsored by the swimmmg club with the " Aquabelles " m their lovely new red bathing suits, and the " aquanuts " tumbling about in ridiculous, comid dives. On Thanksgiving morning Athletic Association sponsored a horse show at Georgiana stables. The young equestriennes vied for honors for their respective classes, the juniors being the wmners of the gymkhans, and Margaret Murchison in her good looking black riding habit came away with the blue ribbons. From February 19th to 24th Athletic Association took the spotlight in ' A. A. Week. " There was a swimming pageant on the first night with carefully executed dives, formations and strokes. On Thursday night there were badminton and fencing exhibitions by students of Georgia Tech. First row, left to right: Helen Carson, Ernestine Cas ' . . .

Friday night the health contest brought A. A. week to a close. Each campus organization had a representative who, dressed in her best evening dress, walked across the gym and up on the stage where she was judged with the other entrants by the professors in the athletic department. Gene and Ruth Slack carried away first and third awards respectively (what ' s the family secret?), while Frances Abbot came in second place. Throughout the year Athletic Association held open house in the gym on Saturday night, in order to enliven would-be dull campus dates and to in- troduce students to boys from near-by schools. You could compete at bowl- ing, darts, horseshoes and ping-pong or if you were not athletically inclined, there were bridge and bingo to entertain you. A. A. held its final banquet in May with May Day participants, members of sports ' clubs and class teams as guests. At this time, the yearly trophies were awarded and the new officers were officially installed in their duties. The banquet brought to a close a very successful year and ushered in the be- ginning of another. enter of attraction at A. A. ' s Ja uary open house. Sophomore cheer leader spurs the team on to victory. Competition grows hot in the Sophomore-Senior sa HOOK E Y Friday the thirteenth, in spite of all supersti- tion, marked the opening of a hockey season that was one of the most successful Agnes Scott has ever had. Unforgettable are the exciting games which featured not only cooperation among the members of the teams but also the spectacular plays of the individuals. Unforgettable also are those lusty yells and traditional class songs with which the excited bleachers and side-lines spurred their teams on to play. Winning every game except one, a scoreless tie with the seniors, the sophomore team marched through to victory and to the 1939 champion- ship. The (Annie) Wilds, MacGuire, Lott trio worked together with clock-like precision to pile up the scores. Not until the last half of their last game was the opposing team able to score against them. Second honors went to the seniors, who, led by Carson and Forman, were stopped only by the sophomores. The junior and freshman teams played good defensive games and individuals showed spectacular grandstand plays. Especially outstanding in defensive play was the junior goal keeper, Martha O ' Nan, who seemed to repel the ball as opposite poles of a magnet. Hockey Man- ager Ida Jane Vaughan, who made the only score against the sophomores, Scottie Wilds and Pattie Patterson gave demonstrations of hockey par ex- cellence, mak ns; many outstanding runs. The freshmen showed promise of becoming a real threat next year with such players as Holloran, Mac- Faydan, Hooper and Rountree to back them up. Manager Vaughn gets set for a tough game.

Playing to a huge grandstand, the evenly matched teams demonstrated their skills with the sticks. Spurred on by the en- thusiastic gallery the sub-varsity took an early lead and held during the first half of the game. After the half, the varsity came back mto the game pepped up by " huddle talk " and revived with oranges, ready to get down to business. Then spectators saw how the game should really be played. Carolyn Forman, m her last game, ran up and down the field piling up the score for the varsity team and winning the individual laurels of the game. Fighting a hard, well-played game up until the last minute, the varsity fi- nally pulled out of the hole, and when the final whistle of the season blew, the var- sity had won, with a score of 2 to 1.

The groups on the campus, day students, dormitories, cottages and faculty, played against one another in a short tournament. Before the games each team presented a short skit that added to the informality and fun. It ' s a toss-up between " Mitch " and Ann Fisher in a student-taculty game of the Jug tourney. Miss Carlson, In the background, Is ready to receive the ball. . ' rax At the end of the season varsity and sub-varsity teams were announced and they played their annual game against each other on March 1st. As usual this was very ex- citing with the best players of the school playing against each other. The close score of 29 to 27 tells the story of a thrilling game in which the varsity was finally victorious. cr It a a t ! Fast games, skillful playing and enthusiastic spectators made the 1940 basketball season a very successful one. The intra-mural games were full of excitement. Evenly matched teams and spectacular plays by individuals kept the scores close and class spirit running high. The sophomores and seniors ran a close race for the championship but the sophs finally triumphed. Both teams defeated the junior and freshman sextets and met each other in a game that was the most exciting one of the entire season. Aided by Carolyn Dunn and Mary Olive Thomas, little Dot Webster (basketball manager and outstanding player of the season) streaked across the court like a flash of lightning to send the ball spinning through the hoop and to run up the sophomore score. On the other end of the court Betty Ann Brooks, Anne Geller- stedt and Mary Dean Lott had the difficult task of guarding the senior forwards Ruth Slack, Helen Carson, and Virginia Milner. The junior team gave exhibitions of fine playing in every game. They fought close battles with the seniors and sophomores and won over the freshman team. Ann Fisher and Ethelyn Dyar made some of the prettiest shots of the season. Freshman team was outstanding for its defensive play.

IL lOWIS Swimming m Agnes Scott is .i popular year- round sport. Classes conducted by Miss Mitchell and Mrs. Lapp start with beginners, who by clinging to long poles learn to float and kick; the intermediates perfect their crawls and back strokes through endless trips across the pool; and the more advanced classes practice diving and learn the diffi- cult, but valuable, art of life saving. There is a place for everyone down at the pool, and the cool blue water and clean white tiles are very inviting. During exams open plunge periods in the late afternoons find many girls drowning the care of " cram- ming, " as they frolic in the water. To the girls who are members of Swimming Club we owe due respect, for the re- quirements in tryouts are difficult, and only those who excel are admitted. Directed by Swimming Manager Beryl Healy, the Swim- ming Club presented two water pageants. In the Fall the Athletic Association ' s World ' s Fair featured the Aquacade with Virginia Milner and Beryl Healy as the stars. In Feb- ruary they presented another program en- titled " The Myth of Narcissus, " with Sarah Matthews and Julia Moseley starring. Competition between the class teams was keen in the two swimming meets, but in spite of the spirit and efforts of the under- classmen the seniors were victorious in both trials.

THE 7 e n n L CLUB ETHELYN DVAR President Ethelyn Dyar, President of Tennis Club, has directed its tourna- ments, matches and other activities this year. Sunny skies and warm breezes make tennis a favorite pastime in the Spring and Fall. The courts are ever in demand by students and faculty who find that playing a brisk set of tennis is a good way to shake off the library boredoms, and that it is a " sure cure " for that old ailment, " Spring fever. " The Tennis Club is composed of the best players in school. Members are elected after vig- orous tryouts held in the Fall. This year the club played against Tech, Emory, and Colum- bia Seminary and made a surprisingly good showing against the " stronger " sex. In the annual tennis tournaments, under Ethelyn Dyar ' s supervision, Mary Nell Taylor was the winner after defeating Dot Webster in an exciting finals match.

Aiken, Martha Jane Horton Tennis classes, always large groups, are taught by Miss Mitchell ( " Mitch, " to us) who makes the self-conscious beginners laugh at their own mistakes, " straighten that elbow, " and " watch the ball. " The patience of the student instructors is unlimit ed in repeating di- rections and chasing wild balls. These are classes for those of all abilities: beginners are told the fundamentals, and sent to the courts and backboards for practice. Intermediates spend all their time playing and perfecting their strokes. In the advanced classes the girls play against each other and learn those little touches that make champions of good players. Tournaments within the classes add interest and encourage good playing. Ethelyn Dyar, who acted as Tennis Manager this year, started a system of class teams and appointed as Class Managers, Polly Taylor and Helen Carson, seniors; Helen Klugh, junior; and Mary Robertson, sophomore.

This year the big trip was to Kenne- saw Mountain. Members always have lots of fun regardless of whether the event is a supper hike to Ice Cream Springs, a week-end trip or a supper hike at Harrison Hut. A An addition to the Physical Education Department this year was Mrs. Taylor with her stable of horses and her station wagon. Always a popular sport, horseback riding was a top favorite this year because of the interest and enthusiasm of the nesv instructor. On Thanksgiving Day, for the first time, Agnes Scott had its own horse show. The Junior Class was the winner in class competition which featured not only contests in jumping and speed but also trick games and relays. In- dividual laurels were won by the excellent riding of Margaret Murchi- son, Anne Eagan, Pattie Patterson, Anita Woolfolk, and Margaret Smith. uJ GOLF Truth is stranger than fiction, and strange as it miy seem, the golfing careers of Agnes Scott girls begin on the hockey field. It is there that Miss ' Wilburn and Mr. Sargent, " pro " from East Lake Country Club, take beginners to learn the correct grips and to practice their swings — on defenseless dandelion heads. Later on they go to the driving range at the Venetian Club for more practice on real golf balls; and then, when they can knock the balls over the creek, they are allowed the exciting experience of going around the Forest Hills Golf Course with a patronizing caddy leading the way. As an evi- dence of the fact that golf is becoming increasingly popular at Agnes Scott, more and more " advanced golfers " are participating in the annual college tournament every year. Students are flocking to the growing classes; and this year the sport attracted two members of the faculty, Miss Laney and Miss Preston. A R Ml E II Y Excited voices rise and fall as arrows fly and bows quiver on the hockey field in the Spring and Fall. There, archery classes meet to try their hands at the sport which, though it originated in the middle ages as a means of warfare, still holds its popularity as a twentieth century recreation. Those skilled Hottentots whose arrows often fly straight to the bull ' s eye are members of the Archery Club. Every year Agnes Scott par- ticipates in the National Telegraphic Archery Contest in which, for the past two years, our female William Tells have been winners in the southern district. erday " reports Nina May to Sally Matthews.

ELOISE LENNARD May Day Chairman tln niEPl RATION May loURTH was .i big day on the Agnes Scott calendar, because that was the day chosen for the annual May Day celebration. In connection with the semi-centennial celebration this beautiful pageant in the May Day Dell reviewed the " History of the Education of Women. " May Queen, Carolyn Alley, played the part of Memory, and the members of the court played the parts of the nine Muses and three Graces. This pageant, directed by Eloise Lennard, May Day Chairman, was the largest one that Agnes Scott has ever presented, incorporating the work of faculty and alumnae as well as the efforts of the students.

Members of ihe committee missing from picture are: Mary Ann Faw, Penn Hammond, Mary Matthews, Boots Moore, Sarah Gray Rainey, Pat Reasoner, and Laura Sale. Perhaps the campus is aware of the work being done only during the Spring when the Queen and court are elected and dancing classes practice their colorful parts; but the Chairman and the members of May Day Com- mittee start work on plans in the early Fall to make this celebration a grand climax for the year. A writing committee composed of alumnae drew up the scenario at the first of the year, and Mr. Dieckmann composed original scores of music. Special committees designed the costumes, planned the dances, and gathered together needed properties. Tryouts for leading parts in the story were held just before Spring holidays. At the beginning of the Spring quarter work was begun on the actual pageant. Costumes were made, dances were perfected, and finally on May fourth, in the May Day Dell, Eloise and the Committee presented the 1940 May Day celebration. C It a Ht p L c n d- ki W L E i D E R S Wearers of the purple A. S. letters are the star athletes at Agnes Scott. The big monogram is the highest award given by the Athletic Association and physical education department. The award is made on the basis of points won by participation in athletic contests, by being a member of class and varsity teams, and for being an officer on Athletic Association Board. Letters are awarded to those girls who have 1600 points and stars to those with 1200 points. Those who have letters are automatically members of the A. S. Club, which can boast a membership of six this year. Virginia Milner, popular president of the Athletic Association, has a letter and a star as evidence of her ability in sports. She has been a member of class and varsity teams of hockey and basketball and is the school ' s outstanding swimmer. Helen Carson, Vice-President of the Athletic Association, has made her points by participation and good sportsmanship in hockey, basketball and tennis as well as by being a member of the board. Polly Taylor is the school ' s tennis champion and also holds a high rank among city tennis players in Atlanta. She has won the singles championship every year during her college career and is a member of the winning doubles team. She has also served as tennis manager and a member of A. A. Board. Ruth Slack is also a girl of vei-satile skills. She wears her letter due to membership on the board and par- ticipation in hockey, basketball and tennis, where she has been a valuable player in class and varsity teams. Henrietta Thompson won her letter her junior year for participation in hockey, basketball, outing club and archery. She has acted as class manager in hockey.

Within a few months Buttrick will have a handsome neighbor, the Music Building.

For years to come it will present the most beautiful feature on the campus. MUSIC BUILDING.

We are indebted to students who have permitted the use of their snapshots, to club groups who have patiently awaited their turn before the photographer, to the members of the faculty who have graciously given their time to pose before the camera, and to students who have accommodated the editors in pictures that needed " atmosphere. " To Dr. McCain ' s booklet, The Story of Agnes Scott, 1889-19H9, we owe the in- formation used on the division pages. For the financial support given by the student budget and by the student organizations, we are deeply grateful. Off the campus we owe our thanks to our very generous advertisers. It is the sympathetic understanding and personal interest of Mr. Marion Ware of Gaspar-Ware Studios, of Mr. Walter Dargan, Miss Helen Mor- gan, and Mr. George Way of Photo Process Engraving Company, and of Mr. Charles W. Young of Foote and Davies Company that have enabled the staff of the Silhouette to publish the 1940 edition. — The Editor. 1 B H R T I S E M E 1 ' T S LIST OF ADVERTISERS: ADOLPHE ' S AGNES SCOTT COLLEGE J.- P.

Agnes Scott could not have chosen n more colorful stylistic period for its beginning than " the Gay Nineties. " The girls of Agnes Scott In- stitute had only a few social privileges. However, when they did moke an appearance in public, they were true glamour girls of the ' 90 ' s, with their checked taffeta flounces and ruffles, parasols, and plumes. o. 1910 — iusteail of the eUiborale loslumes of the ' 90 ' s, tee find the Agnes Scott cuties in a simpler allire. Middy- blouses and skirts were as prevalent as saddle oxfords in 1940. The mere possibility of male company brought about a quick change to frilly shirt ivaists. (Have times REALLY changed?)
