Believing in the permanence of true culture, the eternal value of the Arts and Sciences, and the need for a thorough general education upon which to base all further learning, we proudly present Agnes Scott, a pure Liberal Arts college. The Library scene of much intense study, and especially crowded during exam week. Gothic Grace is the style of Presser Hall. II E D I C A T I I With admiration for her high ideals, with respect for her clear, deep thinking, and with appreciation for her charm and sincerity, this 1942 Silhouette is dedicated to . . . MISS LOUISE HALE Miss Louise Hale OUR PRESIDENT Dr. McCain The door to Dr. McCain ' s office in Buttrick Hall is always open to students, whether just for a friendly visit or for talking over some perplexing problem. Students appreciate his deep interest in their activi- ties, as evidenced by his attendance at all coffees, vesper programs, athletic events, musicales, and many such campus functions. The Freshmen know him best as the inspirational leader of their Bible Class. Besides his duties as college president, Dr. McCain holds many other important offices, most of which can be found in " Who ' s Who in America " since he is a nationally known educator and religious leader. He is a senator of the United Chapters of Phi Beta Kappa, a member of the General Education Board of New York, the chairman of the Committee on Cooperation for the Southern University Conference, the chairman of the Committee on New Members for the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, and also a Moderator for the Senate of Georgia for the Presbyterian Church. Dr. McCain ' s influence is vitally felt at Agnes Scott. To students and alumnae he typifies the best of the college ideals. Dr. McCain dictates a Idler into the dictaphone. At the Junior Banquet, Dr. McCain is an honored guest. Mr. Tart pauses for a brie) second in his busy office. Miss Eleanor Hn chcns handles all the school publicity. ADMINISTRATION Mr. S. G. Stukes is Dean of the Faculty, Registrar, and a professor of Psychology. His jolly laugh and real interest in each student have endeared him to the whole student body. Seniors are especially glad to ask his help and advice in obtaining positions after grad- uation, and underclassmen know him better through his lectures in Psychology. The task of managing the school business belongs to Mr. R. B. Cunningham, who is always ready for a pleasant chat with any of the Agnes Scott girls as well as being an extremely capable business manager. Our official treasurer is Mr. J. C. Tart. He also has charge of the bookstore and helps students keep their accounts straight in the student bank. Many girls are grateful for the advice he gives willingly on the fundamentals of keeping an account, even for such a thing as endorsing checks properly. The Admissions Committee of the Faculty, headed by Miss Alexander, assists freshmen in choosing their courses and taking the right amount of work, and sees that they have the proper entrance requirements, while the Committee of Electives, whose chairman is Mr. Holt, aids upperclassmen in choosing major and minor subjects, in electing subjects to harmonize with their chosen course, and in checking their class stand- ing. e, Miss Smith, and Mr. Holt look through the file of the Electives Committee. THE DEO and beauty with efficiency. A large part of her work is dealing with Freshmen and the many problems that the first year invariably brings. Though the Freshmen proudly claim her as their own Inman housemother, upper- classmen also find Miss Hunter a real friend, deeply interested in their affairs. Miss Isabella Wilson, secretary to the Dean of Students, and Miss Lou Pate, secretary to the Dean of Faculty, assist in the Dean ' s Office in approving sign-out slips, keeping records of schedules, dates, and cuts, and in numerous other ways. " Bella " and " Lou, " as they are known to the girls, wait up cheer- fully until all those coming in from late " dance permissions " are back at school. Miss Scandrett catches up on some of her enormous correspondence. Perhaps the place on campus best known to the most people is the " Dean ' s Office " in Main Building. Here are handled all social affairs, as well as varied personal matters, such as rooming problems, sending tele- grams, or even ordering taxis. All four of the staff of the Dean ' s Office, a term which includes the Dean, her staff, and the actual office itself, are graduates of Agnes Scott and thus work in complete understanding not only of the girls but also of the ideals of the college. Miss Carrie Scandrett, Dean of Students, is the one to whom any girl could go with any problem, feeling sure of sympathetic support and the best possible advice. Al- though always busy with the many duties of her position, still she manages to give individual attention to any problem, how- ever trivial, brought to her in her office in Main or in her Buttrick Hall office. Miss Scandrett graciously opens her West Lawn apartment for various retreats and social gatherings and is beloved for her friendly smile and cheerful wink. The Assistant Dean of Students, Miss Charlotte Hunter, was May Queen when a student here; she combines that calm poise " Is there anything I can Jo for yon? ■lies Miss Hunter Lou ami Bella help Betty count up the for that week. nber of her dates K li I I S II The largest departmc varied interests of i host of English maj department, is an a of all literature, of good evidence, adds as to his Shakespean to the excellent Agn nt on the campus is the English department.

However, many Agnes Scott alumnae remember her more for her English 211 course, one of the most interesting and fundamental of the campus. As Chairman of the Faculty committee on Public Lectures, Miss Laney has contributed invaluable service and done add to the cultural development of every nuch tude Among the assistant professors there are varied interests. MISS ELLEN DOUGLAS LEYBURN delights in Eighteenth Century prose, and is much admired for her extensive vocab- ulary. Much of her time is devoted to students ' interests, as May Day Adviser and Mortar Board Spon graduate of Agnes Scott. or. She for Ron faculty advise re with the li MISS JANEF PRESTON shows her prefer Poetry by her own works. Be B. O. Z., she associates herself i side of our campus. American Literature is MISS ANNIE MAY CHRISTIE ' S favorite, especially Nineteenth Century novels and essays. An- other valuable contribution she makes to the campus is her work with the Admissions Committee, which helps freshmen with the academic problems they are likely to have. MISS CLARA MORRISON, Agnes Scott ' s new addition to the English department this year, likes linguistics. Her English Literature classes have done much to make her known and liked already on campus. MISS GRACE WALKER, a fellow- ship worker in the department, devotes the main part of her work to the freshmen, in teaching grammar. They rind her very sympathetic with their view point as a recent graduate herself, and a willing helper for their troubles. MISS FRANCES GOOCH heads the Spoken English de- partment, helping the Agnes Scott students to develop pie speaking voices. She enjoys work rective speech, and diction, and gets most pleasure from dramatics. Her work with Blackfriars, directing, advising, and training has helped them to produce such continuously excellent productions. At one time Miss Gooch taught Madame Chiang Kai-Shek with private lessons at Wesleyan College. Miss Gooch is assisted by MISS ROBERTA WINTER. Besides being an author herself, Miss Winter is skilled in play productions, in which field she helps with .ill the Blackfriars productions, from properties and sound effects to stage make-up. Miss Winter is interested, too, in radio program work. th public speaking, cor- Dr. Hayes ' offic treasury of good literatur The members of the English Department hate many plans to coordinate LANGUAGES • Modern Languages and Classical Languages both are oft elv vital to a student ' s education.

Greek Professor CATHERINE TORRANCE from her extensive knowl- of Greek literature and culture brings the classics to life for her students. For those who have been unable to study the language itself, Miss Torrance holds classes in English about ancient cultural developments. MISS KATHRYN GLICK ' S quiet sense of humor and friendliness towards students have helped to popularize Greek and Latin which she ches. One of her main interests is the Gracco-Roman civilization, espe- cially as it affects western civilization. MISS SUSAN COBBS has quickly become a favorite on campus as a teacher of Latin and Greek.

Bottom: Miss Glick finds some fanciful passage in a Greek myth to share with Miss Torrance and Miss Cobbs. HISTORY History courses have always been among the most popular at Agnes Scott. The college is indeed privileged to have such an excellent staff in this Department. MR. PHILIP DAVIDSON, Professor of History, does not confine his work on the campus to teaching. He is the chairman of the Advanced Standing Committee and has worked a great deal toward the establishment of the University Center program. Last Janu- ary his book, Propaganda and the American Revolution, was published. He is now working on The History of the Eighteenth Century South. MISS ELIZABETH JACKSON ' S special field is English History. In teaching history, she is careful to emphasize the cultural side of the civilization studied. Besides her interests in school activities, Miss Jack- son does a great deal of work in the American Association of University Women. She is now Southeastern Director of the A. A. U. W., as it is known familiarly, and was instrumental in having Pierre van Paasen lecture here at Agnes Scott under the A. A. V. W. ' s auspices. Associate Professor FLORENCE E. SMITH is interested primarily in the study of government and politics. Her class lectures are always clearly outlined and well-planned. Active in some of the civil govern- ment groups nearby, Miss Smith is often called upon to make various speeches in Atlanta. The Electives Committee and String Ensemble also make heavy demands upon her time here upon campus. Mr. Davidson leafs through his own book critically. Miss Smith, Mrs. Sims, and Miss Jackson look through a new book togethc MRS. CATHERINE STRATEMAN SIMS is a very popular member of the History Department. By demand of the students she leads weekly discussions on current affairs. Chapel is always crowded for her weekly talks on the progress of the war. Her class in International Relations has won for her the admiration and respect of all who have taken it. Mrs. Sims takes infinite care and much time in marking out the daily war progress on the Library maps with colored pins, a service much appreciated by the campus. BIBLE The students find the Bible Department very interesting as well as informative. This department helps add not only religious campus. The study of Bible is required for graduation and con- sidered a fundamental part of education. MRS. ALMA SYDENS- TRICKER, who heads the department, is recognized as a leader in spiritual activities in Decatur. She has a scholarly interest in ancient language and traditions which was responsible for some of her archaeological research in the Holy Land. Mrs. Sydens- tricker is very interested in all students and tries to have every possible personal contact with them. Before coming to Agnes Scott, Mrs. Sydenstricker was Acting Dean of Women in a college in Mississippi and also taught history. Part of her activi- ties in Decatur have consisted in teaching the Women ' s Bible Club; and in Chatauqua, N. Y., where she spends much vacation time with her family, Mrs. Sydenstricker is vice-president of the Woman ' s Club. Students respect her learning greatly, and many a freshman and new student has been told by admiring upperclassmen that " Mrs. Sydenstricker has read the Bible in a dozen different languages! " Mr. Gillespie and Mrs. Sydenstricker emphasize the importance of a geographical background in Bible Study. MR. J. F. GILLESPIE specializes in the Old Testament studies. His class lectures are carefully planned, following closely an organized syllabus. Mr. Gillespie is also pastor of several Home Mission churches in the Atlanta Presbytery. He lives near-by in Decatur, but in the summer Mr. Gillespie conducts regular services in his home-state, North Carolina. He and his charming wife are frequent guests of the students for meals in the dining hall and other student social aifairs, such as Sundav coffees. THE M I! IS 11! V It seems to each student that she spends most of her time in the Library. For this reason everyone appreciates the pleasant atmos- phere which the capable staff provides. Under the direction of MISS EDNA RUTH HANLEY. the Library is managed in an efficient way. She is always willing to look for some obscure reference which a student may need, and she dues it with little difficulty. She is interested in library plans, having helped to design this Library, and having written a book on the architectural plans of various libraries m the United States. Assistants to the Librarian are MISS AGNESS REAGAN, MISS MARGARET WEIR, and MISS LAURA COLVIN. U S 1 C i I T As a liberal arts school, Agnes Scott naturally has fine departments in music and art, some knowledge of which is necessary for well-rounded cultural development. Mr. Johmon steps briskly our to Presser Hall. MISS LOUISE GARLAND LEWIS, teacher of art, enjoys all types of art. Usually while painting each new picture, she believes it to be the most enjoyable one she has done yet. Besides art instruction in oils, in art history and appreciation illustrated with many slides for the benefit of those interested in art but without any marked creative talent along those lines. She has travelled widely and actually seen many of the great masterpieces about which she lectures, and she can give many interesting anecdotes which help to fasten the pictures in the students ' minds. Some of Miss Lewis ' own work is on exhibition in the library affording much pleasure to students and visitors, and she also helps and advises the Pen and Brush Club. MR. C. W. DIECKMANN, head of the Music Department, is in- terested especially in organ and piano music. His own compositions are widely known, and one of the hymns he composed has become a fa- vorite for use here at chapel time. On some occasions he treats us to some of his works at recitals or meditative periods at chapel. String Ensemble is grateful to him for his direction and the arrangements which they use in their recitals. MR. LEWIS JOHNSON, Voice Professor, directs Glee Club, the College Choir, and Special Chorus. Girls look forward with delight to the programs he puts on with these groups from time to time during chapel. Mr. Johnson also lends his invaluable services to the Glee Club when they prepare to put on their annual operetta in the spring. An assistant teacher of piano, MISS ADA BARTHOLOMEW, some- times joins in recitals with Mr. Dieckmann. Their double piano work is excellent and very much enjoyed by all who hear it. Miss Bartholo- mew comes out from town to give lessons here. Mr. Dieckmann tit one of his favorite occupations, playing on the beautiful new organ in the Presser Hall auditorium. Miss Mell brushes up on the day ' s lesson just before das. E C 1 II I U U II SOCIOLOGY MISS MILDRED RUTHERFORD MELL. Professor of Economics and Soci- ology, came to Agnes Scott in 193 9. Prior to this time she was Dean of Women at Shorter College in Rome, Georgia. To her the fields of Family Welfare and Labor are intensely interesting. Students too, are particularly interested in Labor now that it means so much to our country and its right to strike is in grave danger. She works actively with Sociology groups throughout the state and is a member of the Board of Directors in the Social Planning Coun- cil. On the Council she is also Chairman of the Research Committee and Chairman of the Family-Child Care division. In addition to these many ac- tivities, Miss Mell has this year been working on the Admissions Committee. DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS Because of the able instructors and because the coming •of war has increased greatly the demand for mathe- maticians, there is great interest in this department. The Profressor of Mathematics is CAPTAIN HENRY A. ROBINSON, who on account of active service at Fort McPherson, has been unable to continue his class teaching. He still finds time to attend some campus functions and to play in the String Ensemble. MISS LESLIE JANET GAYLORD, Assistant Pro- fessor, has taken over a great part of the classes which Captain Robinson was forced to give up. She is an excellent teacher, and her patience and her careful explanations of problems make her a favorite with all students. She has served on the Admissions Commit- tee, and is ever ready to give ear to bewildered fresh- This year MISS ANN VANN came to the Agnes Scott faculty as Instructor in Mathematics. She came to us from Queen ' s College in North Carolina, where she taught Mathematics and Business Mathematics, and she holds a master ' s degree from Columbia Uni- versity. In the spring Miss Vann gave a course here- in Business Mathematics. A math hunk is always a source of interest to Miss Vann and Miss Gaylord. Psychologists Omwake unci Dexter stand before one of the chart with which hey often illustrate their lectures. Ull PHILOSOPHY MR. S. GUERRY STOKES, Professor of Psychology, is also Dean of the Faculty and Registrar. An informal atmosphere prevails in his ad- vanced classes as well as in his introductory course in Psychology. He is never too busy to discuss current world problems with any girl who is interested, as he himself is. Every senior looks to him for aid in securing a position after graduation from Agnes Scott. His jolly laugh is one of the memories which students hold long after they leave the college. MISS KATHERINE OMWAKE, Assistant Professor of Psychology and Education, introduces many students to the field of Psychology. Her advanced classes in Applied and Experimental Psychology prepare students for careers in some phase of advertising. She gained valuable knowledge for her Child Psychology course through her actual experi- ence in working with a children ' s playground. PSYCHOLOGY, EOUIUTION MISS EMILY DEXTER is an Associate Professor of Psychology and Education. She is renowned on the campus for her dry sense of humor. She offers a course in the History of Philosophy for those who are interested in the great thinkers of the past and how they have fore- shadowed those of today. Grading systems, statistics, and intelligence tests have a particular fascination for her, ana she takes active part in the reform vork of the communities of Decatur and Atlanta. The text- book, All introduction to the Fields of Psychology, used by many col- leges, is the product of the joint collaboration of Miss Dexter and Miss Omwake. Dr. Jones checks, a case history with Miss Hewitt and Miss Thmbar. E D I U L • DR. EUGENIA C. JONES, the Resident Physician and Professor of Hygiene, who has the task of supervising the health of the girls, is greatly admired and respected by the campus. She has proved to be capable and understanding in the many difficulties that arise in such a iob. S he had been practicing for several years before she came to Agnes Scott after having obtained her degree from Johns Hopkins Uni- versity. Dr. Jones lives here on the campus and takes an active part in several of the campus sports, but riding seems to be her favorite. Assisting Dr. Jones at the infirmary are MISS CAROLYN HEWITT and MISS CAROLYN DUNBAR. Although both are new to the campus this year, they have been very efficient and popular with their patients. Their sympathy and kindness have made any stay in the in- firmary a pleasant interlude. i PHYSICAL EDUCATION MISS LLEWELLYN WILBURN, Associate Professor in the Physical Education Department is a great asset to the campus— her sincere interest in the students and her cheer- fulness help to relieve many a girl from the worries of the classroom. Although her special interest is golf. Miss Vil- burn coaches the hockey teams and also works with the basketball teams. MRS. HARRIETTS HAYNES LAPP, Assistant Professor, is in charge of the dancing classes, which also includes some of the dances for May Day. She encourages her classes to better posture by her own graceful and natural movement. Another field of Mrs. Lapp ' s activities is swimming, and her classes have the benefit of an indoor, tiled pool. Miss Wilburn demonstrates a snappy approach shot. Music, costumes, dancing, and all that go toward making a successful May Day, require intensive cooperation by Miss Wilbnm. Miss Mitchell, Miss Dozier, and Mrs. Lapp. MISS ELIZABETH MITCHELL, popular with all the students, instructs in tennis, archery, swimming, basketball, and badminton. " Mitch " is lots of fun and at the same time means business in her classes. Students plead to have her join them in their sports. Some of the dancing classes are under the direction of MISS EUGENIE LOUISE DOZIER. Her classes in Modern, Social, and Folk dancing are very popular. The great responsibility of planning and producing an effective May Day goes to Miss Dozier. 1L SGIEHCES The Science Department offers vario Astronomy. The Biology Dcpartmen DOUGALL who particularly enjoys recognized internationally as a leadei Chemistry, Physics, and jaded by MISS MARY STUART Mao ch in Genetics of the Protozoa. She is ientific research. Her latest interest has been in the textbook, Biology of Living Things, which she has recently completed in collaboration with Mr. Hegner. MISS BLANCHE MILLER and MISS FRANCES McCALLA are Miss MacDougall ' s assistants. " Bee " is interested in comparative anatomy and technique, while " Frank ' s " special interest is in the field of Invertebrate Zoology. Working in the Biology De- partment is MISS BERYL HEALY, a 1941 graduate of Agnes Scott and a fellowship worker in Biology. She gives most of her time to assisting in the Freshman lab. The Associate Professor of Botany, MR. ERNEST HOCKING RUNYON, enjoys work with the plants in his hothouse. The slime molds and the physiology of plants can also be added to the list of his particular interests. One of the most enjoyable features of his course is the field trips on which he takes his students. Mr. Holt looks up a chemistry problem for a 101 quiz. nbers of the Biology Department, Misses Healy, MacDongall, Miller, McCalla, and Mr. Knnyon in a technical confab. Dr. Christian illustrates a lecture in the Physics classroom. MR. ROBERT B. HOLT represents the Chemistry Depart- ment. His informal and very instructive classes along with his other varied campus activities make him one of the most pop- ular teachers on the campus. As a member of the Electives Committee, Mr. Holt helps the upperclassmen each year in their choice of courses. His assistant, MRS. DAVIS, a newcomer to the faculty as laboratory instructor in this department, has made many friends among faculty and students. MISS PHILIPPA GILCHRIST, Associate Professor of Chem- istry, does most of her work with the advanced students. She is admired for being systematic, calm, and patient in explaining her work to others. DR. SCHUYLER M. CHRISTIAN enjoys working in his special fields, Physics and Astronomy. His course in the History of Science is one of the most popular courses in this field. His quiet humor and kindliness have gained for him widespread popularity, and Mortar Board claims much of his time as one of their sponsors. His little daughter is the mascot for the Senior Class. In the Middle Ages the sciences of Arithmetic, Geometry and Astronomy were considered three of t he Liberal Arts. With our broadened knowl- edge of science and the dependence of our civili- zation upon its accomplishments, Physics, Chem- istry and Biology are today also important con- stituents of the Liberal Arts. Agnes Scott is proud of its fine Science De- partment. From the Biology museum on the third floor to the Library on the first floor, the Science Hall offers the campus ample opportu- nity to become acquainted with the various branches in this field. Although only a Bachelor of Arts degree is offered, many students select Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Astronomy or any of the Pure Sciences for their major or minor subjects. L w-t book oj: yiit z etuo-t La An impressive-looking facility lends us to Investitu At last it came. We never thought it would. This is Our Year, from the moment we stepped back on campus in the fall, from the moment we handed in our names as they were to be written on the sheep- skin, through the frolics of Little Girl ' s Day and the dignified solemnity of our Investiture, through May Day and Senior Opera, and finally through exams, a whirl of Senior parties, and Commencement; it has all been our year. Our experiences have been deepened by a sense of class fellowship, welded fast by the previous years. We end it feeling that Our Year has been a good year.

Turn- ing to music for enjoyment and release from the tension of modern life, student demand has re- sulted in the expansion of musical facilities at Agnes Scott. Since last year it has been possible to minor in Music. Training is offered for voice, piano, theory, orchestral instruments and organ on one of the largest and newest organs in the South. Membership in String Ensemble and the Glee Club is voluntary. Moreover, the whole campus can benefit from the Music Department by hearing the various voice, orchestra, piano and organ recitals; the Christmas carols; by studying the course in the history of opera, and by attending the bi-monthly lecture-concerts of Mr. Hodgson and Mr. Dieckmann. i ylit PC ok OT . Hflj }L 19 4 2 Julia Ann Patce Editor Suenette Dyer Assistant Editor Dot Nabers Assistant Editor With the actual taking of pictures in the early fall, the plans for the 1942 Silhouette, made partially last spring and summer, began to materialize. Mr. Ware, the man with the camera, seemed to be on hand for all occasions which we wanted to keep as vital memories. Julia Ann Patch, editor, and her two assistants, Doc Nabers and Suenette Dyer, were overwhelmed with schedules, reams of copy, plans that had to be changed at the last minute, typing, and consultations with the printer and the engraver. Members of the staff were given instruc- tions to stop faculty members on their way to class, to interrupt classes, plays, athletics; anything to " get that picture! " With it all, we hope to pack into the small space between two covers a vivid recollection of this whole momentous year as it passed at Agnes Scott. Dot and Suenette get a big kick out of looking over some pictures with Catherine and Ruth. Top row, left to right: Bennett, Brougher, Gish. Second row: Hannah, Hill, Holmes.

The Business Staff, under Mary Robertson, worked steadily and faithfully throughout the year, getting ads when ads were extremely hard to get and doing a thorough job in spite of their obstacles, with little general recognition. The convention in Atlanta in the spring was attended only by the editor, but in November, both the editor and the business manager went to take part in the national convention in St. Louis, Mo., finding it a helpful and stimulating experience. AGNES SCOTT ew Jetty Davidson Bradfiel Editor Mary Jeanne Osborne Managing Editor To record weekly the important events of the campus, including social, academic, ath- letic news, to follow the rapid course of current events, and to inform the campus of all coming events is no easy task for a newspaper. Yet the Agnes Scott News does all this and more; in the editorials all phases of campus life are touched upon, and student opinion is expressed in the column " Campus Quotes. " Eagerly read by faculty and students alike every Wednesday afternoon, the News has become an integral part of campus life. In the fall the News sent a representative to the National Scholastic Press Associa- tion convention in St. Louis to exchange ideas with college newspapers from all over the country on editorial and business methods.

It is the only publication here on campus to devote itself purely to creative writing. Members of B. O. Z. and Poetry Club contribute many of their works to the Aurora, but anyone, from senior to freshman, is urged to submit some of his work to the editor. Through the Aurora, students have the opportunity to display their short stories, their essays, poems, short dramas, and critical works to the college community for its enjoyment. They have the benefit of campus opinion and criticism. Campus artists illustrate the Aurora and design its cover. This year Editor Edith Dale saved up contributions throughout the whole year and published one comprehensive issue in the spring instead of one issue during each quarter as had previously been done. Edith Dale Editor Neva Jackson, Ruth Lincback, Mary Florence McKee, Jean Moore, Margaret Sheftall. Jean ami Edith get ideas from other magazine The Aurora is the oldest publication on campus, and it has been published continuously since its be- ginning. In spite of rising costs and the desire to cut down on activities during the emergency, it was de- cided to keep the Aurora as an essential feature for a Liberal Arts College. 3etty Sunderland Business Manager EDITORIAL STAFF Edith Dale Ed, Neva Jackson Associate E$ito Jean Tucker Associate Editay I Ruth Lineback Art E i Margaret Sheftall Poetry Editor BUSINESS STAFF Betty Sunderland Business Manager Charlotte Davis Business Assistant " " Charlotte Davis sistant Business Mana, Getting advertisements to finance the Aurora is no easy task, but it is excellent publicity for the school concerning its literary ability.

Secretary Clara Rountree . . . Treasurer Before Agnes Scott officially opened in September, the members of the executive committee cf Student Government had a retreat at Harrison Hut, making plans and appointing committees for the year. Student Government had charge of orientation program for the freshmen and transfer students. This year a new phase of orientation was introduced, that of having " Sophomore Helpers " to aid the sponsors from the Junior Class. The ori- entation program also brought the hand- book classes to the new students to teach them the " do ' s and don ' ts " of Agnes Scott. When they signed the Student Government pledge, they became full- fledged Hottentots. SSOCIATIOH Honor Week, sponsored by Student Government, was one of the highlights on the campus, with chapel pro- grams all week. There were talks from girls representing the student body. Ruth Slack spoke for the alumnae, and Miss Louise Hale was the faculty speaker. Throughout the year Student Government was in charge of the Second-hand Book-store. Records were also bought for the victrola in the Murphy Candler building. For the domestically inclined the sewing ma- chine in Main was kept in working condition and the kitchen in Murphy Candler well-equipped. Ila Belle Levie, the vice-president, was our fire-chief, and had the task of waking the boarders for fire drills. During the Christmas vacation Agnes Scott was rep- resented at the National Student Federation of America convention in Minneapolis by President Virginia Mont- gomery and Secretary Dot Holloran. Delegates were also sent to the Southern Regional N. S. F. A. meeting at Louisiana State University in the spring. The theme of Student Government for this year was the Agnes Scott Ideal, and the chapel programs were designed to bring out the four phases of this Ideal: high intellectual attainment, a simple religious faith, physical well-being, and the development of a well-integrated personality.

To integrate its activi- ties the Association chose for its theme this year, " I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. " Christian Association ' s activities are numerous. Members of the council met freshmen at the stations and brought them to the ' campus when school opened in September. As part of the orientation program, a picnic was given for these new students at Harrison Hut. During Christian Association week at the beginning of the school year, the purpose, the theme, and opportunities for service were presented to the campus. Closing this week on Sunday night an inspiring candle-light reconsecration service was held. The theme was carried out throughout the year in chapel talks and Sunday night vespers. Social service activities are an important part of the program. Every Saturday afternoon students entertain children at the Scottish Rite Hospital. Some girls teach Sunday School classes at the Decatur negro mission. Others work at the " Chapel " near the Capitol in cooperation with Columbia Seminary boys. In the fall Christian Association gave a picnic for the Industrial Girls of Atlanta. Before Christmas vacation a Christmas party was given for underprivileged good I Mardia Hopper of Fresh, Dr. Elliott ' s discussions are easy and informal. children of Decatur. Girls selected someone from these children for whom to play Santa Claus. The gifts were taken to the various homes to be opened Christmas morn- ing. During Christmas vacation the National Assembly of Student Christian Associations met in Oxford, Ohio. Frances Radford was the delegate from Agnes Scott to take part in the conference. The Christian Exchange continued to stimulate thought among the students. It presented opinions from students at Georgia Tech, Emory University, and Columbia Seminary as well as contributions from members of our college com- munity. At the beginning of the winter quarter Christian Asso- ciation held a retreat to be attended by interested girls out- side of the Cabinet. At this retreat the work done in the previous quarter was re-evaluated, the spiritual needs of the campus were considered, and plans were made for Religious Emphasis Week. Dr. William M. Elliott, Jr., gave inspiration to the faculty and students during Religious Emphasis week, February 17-21, through his addresses in Chapel. Through- out this week the emphasis was placed on meaningful Christian living. Various denominational groups, the Freshman and Sopho- more Cabinets, and the Chapel Group work under Chris- tian Association and are a part of it. Through the Christian Council, consisting of representatives of these various groups, all religious organizations on campus have the op- portunity to work together.

One of the most active and influential societies of Agnes Scott is the Mortar Board, a national honor society. Scholar- ship, leadership, service and senior class standing are the requirements for election. This year the president of Mortar Board attended the national convention, which is only held every four years and was held this year at Buckhill Falls, Pennsylvania. The recognition service, held in the fall, had for its speaker Jean Bailey, an alumna of Agnes scott and herself a member of Mortar Board. Mortar Board started its many activities with a tea on the quadrangle after Class Day exercises last spring. The Service Program for this year was planned shortly after the opening of school during a retreat held at Miss Scandrett ' s home. It stimulated social life on the campus with a picnic and treasure hunt for the transfers in October at Harrison Hut; with a freshman party given in conjunction with the Emory O. D. K. ' s; with a formal sophomore party in the fall; and with a formal freshman party in the winter. Mortar Board sponsored an " Activities Table " in the Library so that the college community might be informed about the work and interests of various organizations, and it helped to sponsor various Lectures and Musicales.

Members of Mortar Board served tea in the Library on Thanksgiving Day, when it was open for the display of Book Week. The marriage classes for seniors are sponsored every year by Mortar Board, which procures the best possible speakers on many different aspects of marriage. This year Mortar Board also brought Miss Osborne to the campus, a speaker on charm, not only in dress and general appearance, but also in manners, attitude, and personality.

Phi Beta Kappa is a national honorary organization which seeks to foster high ideals in scholarship. The Beta Chapter of Georgia was established at Agnes Scott College on March 23, 1926. It was the 102nd institution to receive a charter and the 9th college for women. The purpose of Phi Beta Kappa is set forth in the Constitution of United Chapters: " To recognize and encourage scholarship, friendship, and cultural interests. " Since the foundation of the chapter sixteen years ago at Agnes Scott College, over two hundred members have been elected. Elections are made twice each school year in January and in May.

The students elected in January from the class of 1942 are: Billie Gammon Davis, Susan Arnette Dyer, Mary Jeanne Osborne, and Julia Ann Patch. Miss Mar- jorie Hope Nicholson, the contemporary president of the national organization and the first woman to hold this office, ad- dressed th e initiates and the student body at the time of election. SENIORS SOPHOMORES The first of the four principles of the Agnes Scott Ideal is a higher intellec- tual attainment: " The search for truth, avoidance of shams and short-cuts, maintenance of the honor system, fear- lessness of purpose, and efficiency in every duty. " The distinction of being named to the Honor Roll is given to those girls who attain an excellent scholastic average. These students play an important part in upholding this first part of the Ideal.

Eligibility for membership is based on scholastic achievement in Latin or Greek. The Alpha Chapter was established at Agnes Scott by Frances Craighead, now Mrs. Dwyar of Atlanta, who became its first president. Mrs. Dwyar was invited back to the college in December to attend a Christmas tea at the home of Miss Torrance in honor of the new members. She spoke informally on " The Pleasure and Privilege of Member- ship in Eta Sigma Phi. " All Latin and Greek students and alumnae members of the society were invited to meet Mrs. Dwyar. Instead of their annual banquet in the winter. Eta Sigma Phi used the money for the banquet to buy a defense bond to be given to the college toward establishing a scholarship. To encourage the study of Latin in the local high schools, Eta Sigma Phi awards annually a medal to the outstanding student in each high school class in Vergil.

Young scientists of Chi Beta Phi at Agnes Scott are proud to claim their membership in the Alpha Sigma Chapter which has the distinction of being the first women ' s chapter of this national honorary scientific society. It is further distinguished by having a senior, Betty Ann Brooks, elected as the national second vice-president of the organization. Members are elected twice a year on the basis of active interest and scholastic achieve- ment in any one of the sciences: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Astronomy, Mathematics, or Psychology. The formal initiation banquet in the fall and the initiation picnic in the spring are memorable events to the new members. Several outstanding scientists in their field were invited to speak at the meetings: Dr. Hamm of Atlanta presented an illustrated talk on Plastic Surgery; Dr. Schuyler Christian spoke on the " History of Science. " Through the use of the Biology depart- ment ' s new motion picture machine, the members were able to see instructive films on natural history subjects. At the end of the year Chi Beta Phi presents a scholarship key to the member who has done outstanding work in her field of science.

Neva and the other og plan for " Ladies ■Margaret " and " Lob " were kindred spirits in " Dear Brutus. " Blackfriars, the first club on the Agnes Scott campus, was begun in 1915 at the sug- gestion of Dr. Gaines in order to organize the various dramatic activities of the school. Miss Margaret Phythian, now a French professor here, was one of the first members of the club. The membership, which has now been limited to forty, is divided into two parts. For regular dramatic membership, one must have had basic speech, or must be taking it and must be admitted by tryout before Miss Gooch and an executive board. A new feature this year is the technical membership. To be eligible for this, one must work on the production of one play under the direction of Miss Winter and must then be recom- mended by her for acceptance. Blackfriars has had an outstanding history. In 1928 a play written by a member of the faculty, won first prize in the World Contest for Amateur Production held in New York. A complete history of Blackfriars was recently written by Miss Gooch and was placed in the cornerstone of Presser Hall. Among the interesting programs presented at club meetings this year were a talk by James Weems of the Emory Players on his experience in summer stock, and a lecture by Mr. James, light technician of Presser Hall, on " Stage Setting. " Mr. James has done graduate work in this field and has made some interesting stage models which he used to illustrate his lecture. 1L B LiM- FRIARS Miss Winter offers congratulations after " Dear Brutu Martha Sue and Martha try to from sleep. Neva chats with two of the leading members of the Chekhoi playc after their production of " Twelfth Night. " Thi s year the club, in keeping with its custom, gave two major productions. In November it presented " Ladies-in- Waiting, " and in February, James Barrie ' s " Dear Brutus.

The Major General arouses his daughters in the operetta " The Pirates of Penzance. " For many years Agnes Scott ' s friends have been privileged to enjoy the Glee Club and its associates, the College Choir and the Special Chorus. These or- ganizations offer the girls opportunity to participate in choral work. Under the direction of Mr. Lewis H. Johnson, they have given many successful programs at Agnes Scott and in Atlanta. Perhaps the presentation most eagerly awaited was the annual Christmas Carol service sung in Presser Auditorium by the College Choir, the largest of the three groups. This year it was assisted by the Geor- gia Tech Glee Club under the direction of Mr. Walter Herbert. Bonny starts the lictrola while other members choose their favorite records. IJ L E E CLUB The Georgia Tech Glee Club also joined the Agnes Scott girls in the production of the annual operetta given in March. This year ' s presentation was the well-known Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera, " The Pirates of Penzance. " The Special Chorus is a smaller group of trained voices selected by Mr. Johnson. Besides singing at the Music Clubs, Civic Clubs, banquets, and other meet- ings in Atlanta this year, the group has sung several times at some of the army camps near Atlanta.

The campus may well feel proud of the group of young artists who call themselves the Pen and Brush Club, for their chief contribution has been the many beautiful posters which have appeared during the year. Membership in the club is open to Art students by invitation and to all students by tryout. Pen and Brush has been trying something new in activities this year. The members felt a real need of emphasizing the practical fields of Art which are not offered by the Art de- partment. They held their special meetings open to all who were interested. One meeting was devoted to " The Art of Dressing " at which Joyce, fashion director in an Atlanta depart- ment store, discussed the principles of costume design and color. Another meeting was given over to the subject of interior decoration. Since most of the members were interested in com- mercial art, they set aside several meetings for the discussion of advertising and how to break into the field. Under supervision of Miss Lewis, their spon- sor, the Art department and Pen and Brush exhibited their year ' s work in the spring, in- cluding oil paintings, water colors, sketches, designs and stencils. Good music for recreation is the aim of the fourteen college musicians who are voluntary members o f the String Ensemble, the only unorganized organization on the campus. Since its formation nine years ago by its able director, Mr. C. W. Dieckmann, String En- semble has afforded its musicians many opportunities for worthwhile and constructive work together. In the fall they performed on a Monday evening Music Appreciation program presenting, with Nell Hemphill at the piano, an arrangement of the first movement of Grieg ' s " Concerto. " They gave another recital in the spring. Several members played in the orchestra which accompanied the Glee Club ' s pre- sentation of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, " The Pirates of Penzance.

LECTURE ASSOCIATION Mr. Morgan strolls about the campi; (Picture by Smiley Williams.) you ever seen anything like this before, Leon In 1921 at the suggestion of Dr. Cleo Herron, then professor of history at Agnes Scott, the Public Lecture Association of Agnes Scott College was organized. Dr. Herron, the first chairman, was succeeded by Miss Torrance and then by Miss Laney, who is the present capable and busy chairman. Faculty and student representatives join together in the work of the Association to bring the campus into closer contact with the outside world. They have brought speakers from many varied fields to Agnes Scott. Maurice Hindus, author of several widely-read books gave as his personal opinion the impossibility of Hitler ' s con- quering Russia. Ricardo Alfaro, former president of Panama, spoke of the urgent need for Pan-American unity. Charles Morgan, eminent British author, spoke on creative writing. Completely different from the other presentations was the pro- duction of Shakespeare ' s " Twelfth Night " by the Chekhov Players who gave the play in modernistic form, with the characters in costume shifting the scenery to music. From the field of science came Fay-Cooper Cole to give " An Anthropolo- gist ' s View of the Race, " dealing with race problems as they relate to the present conflict in Europe and Asia. The series was concluded by H. S. Ede speaking on the National Gallery of Art at Washington. He discussed the relation of a people ' s art to their history and philosophy, illustrating his lecture with slides. Members: Miss Laney, Miss Hale, Miss Christian, Mr. Stukes, Mr. Christian, Mr. Davidson, Mary Louise Palmour, Mary Ann Faw, Betty Henderson, Elise Nance, Mar- garet Hartsook, Mary Louise Duffie, Leona Leavitt, Lillian Roberts.

THE BIBLE CLUB To further the religious interests on the Agnes Scott campus and to relate the Bible to the present day world is the purpose of the Bible Club. The club is composed mainly of Bible students, but all who are interested may become members. Ruth Biggs, trimmer, and Eugenia Hailey, president, select a speaker for the next meeting.

" By book reviews, outside speakers, and discussions truly useful to the members, the project of the year was successfully carried out. Dr. Gillespie, one of the faculty advisers, reviewed a new book whose theme was the relation of the Bible to the ever-changing world. Since America ' s entrance into the war, the club has held together more strongly than ever. To do her part in bringing peace into this chaotic world is now the thought upper- most in the mind of each member of this club. C0TILL10I CLUB The scene is the Murphey Candler Building on the second Tues- day of the month. The occasion is a formal tea for selection of the new members for Cotillion Club. The candidates dance with the members of the club, and each member turns in a report of the girl, according to her poise, dancing ability, charm, and general good manners. During the year, there are informal dances and tea dances. This year the Cotillion Club instituted something new when it had a formal Buffet Supper in the Alumnae House, and the girls in- vited their dates to come. Of special interest to the whole campus was the fashion show sponsored by Davison ' s in which the girls modeled " fashions to dance in. " The highlight of their meetings was a demonstration and lesson in the intricate and increasingly popular Rhumba, given by a pupil of Arthur Murray ' s dancing school.

In 1926, these girls organized the first social club on the campus, the Granddaughters Club. Their meetings are held twice a month at the Alumnae House or at the home of day students as social teas. The Granddaughters helped entertain the returning alumnae during Alumnae Weekend on November 27. The big event of the year was the annual spring banquet which was held in May. The members invited their dates for the banquet at Peacock Alley, after which they sepa- rated into small groups to amuse themselves at whichever of the numerous entertainments in Atlanta they enjoyed most. Looking oi er the Aim, Quarterly are Susan Spurhck, vice-president; Alia Wehste resident; and Pat Stokes, Secretary.

B. 0. Z. «. .-- " ' ri " WH!if " Besides being the pen name of Charles Dickens, B. O. Z. is the name of a club whose student members take special interest in creative writing. Open to membership by try- out, the club is kept small to admit only girls of unusual talent, since tryouts are rigidly judged for style and originality. B. O. Z. invites no outside speakers. At their delightfully informal meetings several members read their literary com- positions, and constructive criticism follows with Miss Janef Preston, faculty adviser, leading the discussion. The writing of the members extends into such fields as the short story, play, radio script, and the personal essay. The excellent quality of their work can be judged from the unusual stories and articles they contribute to each issue of the Aurora, quarterly literary magazine. Members — Jane Elliot, Cornelia Stuckey, Mary Olive Thomas, Anastasia Carlos, Mary Florence McKee, Mary James Seagle, Miss Preston, adviser; Tommie Huie, Jean Moore.

Ike POETRY CLUB Agues Scott ' s po, . ,„f n( relaxation ' cts enjoy a moment o} Agnes Scott ' s young poets are not fantastic day dreamers, but are a group of very normal people who call themselves the Poetry Club. Each year aspiring poets try out for mem- bership by submitting specimens of their best poetry; the tryouts being based on freshness of style and originality of thought. At the very informal meetings held in the faculty parlor in Rebecca Scott, each member reads a poem. Helpful criti- cism is given for each poem in the discussion which follows led by Miss Laney, faculty adviser of the club. Each year a disti nguished poet is invited to read hi? poems at several meetings. This year the members chose Miss Preston to read hers. Tangible evidence of the beautiful poems the girls write is seen in each issue of the Aurora, the quarterly literary magazine. The members are, left to right: Dorothy Cremin, Jane Elliott, Margaret Shef tall, Annie Wilds, Tommy Huie, Jane Dinsmore, and Shirley Ann Smith.

With our own country at war, the International Relations Club has done much to keep the campus informed about the world conditions today. The International Relations Club is the new name for the old Current History Forum. This year the club has presented many famous and in- teresting speakers. Walter Paschall, newspaper and radio commentator, held a forum on current events; Ernst Jaf- fray, German refugee student, reviewed the students ' edu- cational situation, and the food situation in Germany; Sir Eric Underwood, representative of the English-speaking Union, discussed the problem of the British government and India; and E. H. Hamilton, a religious missionary from China, spoke on the religious situation in China. The Agnes Scott and Emory International Relations Clubs entertained at a luncheon Count Carlo Sforza, a leader in the Free Italian movement, who gave several lec- tures at Emory as the visiting Carnegie Professor of In- ternational Relations. The special project for the year was to present the col- lege with a map of the world suitable for display in the library to mark the progress of the war each day. The In- ternational Relations Club also sponsored a Chinese supper for Chinese war relief, the talks which Mrs. Sims gave in chapel on current affairs and her weekly discussions in which she gave a summary of the week ' s events. One of the club ' s most helpful services to the campus is posting the daily headlines on the bulletin board in the library.

Armistead, professor of English at Agnes Scott, in a report to the committee of Debating Societies, said that the society had agreed to discontinue its two literary organizations and in their place to form a debating society known as Pi Alpha Phi. This organization was created by and for those who were really interested in debating for the purpose of stimulating and encouraging debating in the college. Admission to membership was to be determined by tryouts held in the fall and spring of each year. Under the stimulating leadership of Dr. George P. Hayes, Pi Alpha Phi is now a growing and progressing organization. At the meetings, held every first and third Thursday in Murphey Candler, a tournament was carried on this year. The winners of the final debate were honored by having their names placed on the Phi Alpha Phi permanent plaque of awards. In February, Agnes Scott debated Emory on the subject, " Resolved, That During Time of National Emergency, the Profits of Corporations Should Be Limited to Six Percent of Invested Capital. " Representatives sent to the annual Milledgeville debate on December 6 tied for second and first places. On March 24 and 2 5 a senior college team and two junior college teams entered the debates at the annual meeting of the Southern Association of Teachers of Speech held this year in Atlanta. Aargaret Erwin, social chairman, and Mary Lightfoot Elian, • resident, plan the next debate with Emory with the help of Aary Jane Bonham, secretary, Margaret Toomey, rice-presi- dent, and Anne Ward, treasurer.

Franc ry gathering of he Cercle Francais. Le Cercle Francais, or the French Club, is one of the main language clubs on the campus. Its purpose is to acquaint the members with the customs, literature, and art of France. With one of the largest memberships of anv campus group, this club is affiliated with the national Alliance Francais. Regular meetings are held in the Murphey Candler build- ing with varied and interesting pro grams. Just before the Christmas holidays, the members of the club sang their traditional French carols over the campus after dark, carry- ing their picturesque handmade lanterns made of cardboard and vari-colored tissue paper. They infected the entire campus with the Christmas spirit. One of the interesting assets to the club is the young French exchange student, Ginette Girardey, who keeps the members on their toes practicing their oral French. Of in- terest to all French students was another French visitor, Madame Arnoux, a famous chanteuse, who gave a fascinat- ing program of French folk songs throughout the ages. After her recital, the French Club gave her a reception in Murphey Candler building. Members — Front row: Madeline Hosmer, Martha Nimmons, Gwen Hill, Adelaide Hum- phries, Betty Burress, Virginia Barr, Olive Hansen, Betty Sullivan.

Because Agnes Scott wanted to do everything pos- sible to further our War effort, the War Council was formed this year, a committee consisting of both faculty and students. Miss Scandrett was the chair- man of the council, while Mr. Christian, Miss Hutchens, Miss Smith, and Miss Cobbs headed the sub-committees. With Mr. Christian worked Polly Frink on Black-out problems. They arranged for practice after practice until everyone on campus knew what to do and where to go, and every light could be extinguished immediately. Frances Tucker, head of President ' s Council, with which the War Council was affiliated, had charge of War Relief mat- ters and material. Miss Hutchens took care of pub- licity, and Miss Cobbs and Betty Sunderland were in charge of conservation, such as having boxes for paper in every dormitory. Seeing that the campus was fully informed of current events concerning the war was the task of Miss Smith and Dorothy Kremin. FIRST AID Another section of the War effort was the First Aid course. The standard American Red Cross basic course was offered in the winter quarter and advanced instruction in the spring. This was under the Physical Education department, which offered gym credits for the First Aid course. Certain members of the campus gave generously of their time in passing the instructors ' exams to be able to relieve the Decatur instructors and give the courses at times most con- venient to the girls. Virginia Tuggle, Martha Dale, Miss Hutchens, and Miss Symms were among those who in- structed classes. This enabled girls who wished to con- tinue in war work after school to obtain their official American Red Cross certificates and avoid losing time later in having to take this basic course. " A sound mind in a sound body " has l ong ex- isted as a classic ideal. Athletics are a vital part of our curriculum, giving physical training, re- laxation from intensive study and preparation for clear, healthy thinking. Agnes Scott students must participate in some sports activities for at least three years. Keen rivalry and great enthusiasm are aroused on the whole campus by the inter-class hockey and bas- ketball games. Horseback riding and dancing are two more sports that offer training and compan- ionship. The entire gymnasium department com- bines its efforts to produce the annual May Day festival, giving training for it in classes during the whole Spring Quarter. Regular physical ex- aminations check the health of every student. Besides supervised athletics, any girl may make free use of the extensive gymnasium facilities to become proficient in her favorite sport whether it be swimming, badminton, golf, archery, bowl- ing or ping-pong. Jl ATHLETIC Ann Gellers " President Secretary Anne Frierson, Treasurer Margaret Doicnie, Vice- President Gay Carrie help President Gellerstedt keep A. A. running smoothly The aim of the Athletic Association of Agnes Scott is to provide en- tertainment and recreation for ev- ery student at Agnes Scott. It has indeed done a good job of it this year. The season had its debut with one of A. A. ' s famous open houses which was attended by three hun- dred boys from Georgia Tech, Em- ory, and Columbia Seminary. The annual A. A. Fair was held on October 3 on the hockey field which became a veritable fair ground. The Fun-house and throw- ing darts at Hitler were the most popular games, while Gay Currie with her acrobatic horse provided much laug hter and fun for all. The highlight of the event was the election of Mary Virginia Evans as " Miss A. A. " She was chosen for the " poise, posture, and pulchri- tude " she showed. Barker Ann Gellerstedt was there to keep every- thing rolling. Top row: Barker, Burruss, Maxwell, Nabers. Second row: Russell, Shufelt, Tuggle Webster, A. Third row: Webster, D, Walker. ASSOCIATION A bull ' s eye for Jane Post at the Open House. On November 8 the board spent a cold weekend at Camp Civitania, and soon after A. A. had a superb skating party with the Georgia Tech Y. M. C. A. at the Rollerdrome in Atlanta. Virginia Tuggle took honors this year in the Ten- nis Singles Tournament held in November. How- ever the Seniors won the Athletic Cup after an un- defeated season in hockey and basketball. Open houses were very popular this year and helped to enliven the spirits of the girls in many ways. Swimming, ping pong, horse shoes, darts, and bad- minton were some of the favorite sports at these events. Athletic Association held its final banquet soon after May Day. It was attended by all of the class teams, members of sport clubs, and May Day par- ticipants. The yearly trophies were awarded and the new officers were officially installed. Thus the banquet brought a wonderfully successful year to a close. Alta Webster swings a pong racket. ping burning Club demonstrates a per- fect star.

For that is the time everyone flocks to the Athletic Field to watch and play in the Hockey games. Hockey is the king of fall sports, whether played by the more energetic souls or just watched by the sideline enthusiasts. The grandstand is al- ways packed with friendly rivals lustily cheer- ing their class on to victory. This fall the Seniors outdid themselves by winning every game; Annie Wilds and Mary Dean Lott were again giving their class team royal support. The sophs took second place with -)nt to the hocke- Zena Harris and Ruth Farrior as the prodigies jf the team, and they were only defeated by the unsurpassable seniors. The " sister " teams really took the honors. The juniors and fresh- men gave consistently stiff competition, and each game proved to be better than the last. The annual Faculty-Varsity game was held as usual at the end of the season, and after a tough tussle, the Faculty was at last able to conquer a 2-0 victory over the Varsity.

The seniors played consistently well throughout and won the champion- ship. Running a close second were the sophomores, and the freshmen placed third. The varsity whipped the sub-varsity in an exciting game on February 27 and the annual Brown Jug Tourney wound up the season on March 5, with the fac- ulty, dormitories, day students and cottages playing against one an- other. BASKETBALL " Fall through, " " walking with the ball, " and " shoot " are probably the most frequently used terms in basketball. They may be incomprehensible to someone who knows nothing about the game, but they ring a familiar and loving note to any basketball enthusiast from Agnes Scott. SINK THAT THROW! But basketball would be nothing without the able assistance of Miss Wilburn and Miss Mitchell who al- ways add a great deal to fun and knowledge. They are the ones who break in the unskilled beginners and teach " the old dogs new tricks. " Spectacular as usual this year was Forward Alta Webster, who helped lead her team to victory. Clara Rountree and Frances Radford, as guard and forward respectively, added to the support of the juniors, while Gwen Hill came in for her share of help for the sophomores.

To be able to swim is a requirement for graduation at Agnes Scott. But whether the girls just like the water or want to learn swimming, the fact still re- mains that it is the most popular all year around sport. Coaching is desired in various degrees, and under the supervision of Miss Mitchell and Mrs. Lapp, one just can ' t help but learn to stay on top. The beginning classes struggle with the fundamental principal of how to keep your head up and still move, while the intermediates try to perfect their roughly learned strokes, and the advanced students enter the very popular diving class or Miss Mitchell ' s Life Saving class. In the fall two inter-class meetings were held and the freshmen team took the honors in the first meet, while the sophomores nosed out the trophy in the second. Such meets give each swimmer a good chance to win a place for herself on the varsity team. SCOTT In February the Swimming Club gave a water pageant with formation swimming, different kinds of strokes, relay races for speed, a relay race where the racer had to wear a shirt, peel it off, and hand it to the next in line, diving, and where even a birthday party with real cake was held in the middle of the pool. Fun was the theme — and everyone had Mrs. Lapp illustrates a perfect stroke. Swimming Club was organized for those girls who are part human and part fish. It has always been one of the most popular athletic clubs and this year it increased its membership with eleven new members. Entrance into the club is based on a system of try- outs, and each girl is rated according to her ability in speed, endurance, diving and life-saving. The Swimming Club has always been noted for its activity in planning events for its own entertain- ment and that of the whole campus. Happy Birthday to Swimming Club. Hurry on with that wet shirt. for perfect timing. T E I I I S Mary Rob slams one over the net. Tennis is " the thing " in the fall and spring. It is a certain way of getting warm on those brisk fall days and a sure cure for that annual spring fever. The courts are always in demand during these seasons and often if one is up at six, she sees a few enthusiasts getting in a " quickie " before breakfast. The club was organized to stimulate interest for those more advanced fiends who desire to play with some really stiff competition. At the meetings the girls play with each other and with faculty members who find the game just as entrancing. Such games really break that professor-student barrier and create good spirit all around. Besides playing with the fac- ulty, the girls played this year with North Avenue Presbyterian School for Girls in Atlanta. At the re- quest of Tennis Club, Littleton Rogers, Davis Cup winner, gave an informal demonstration for the en- thusiastic fans. Littleton Rogers gives some helpful points. (Picture by Oneida Woolford.) Virginia Tuggle, president of Tennis Club, shows members Betty Ann Brooks, Miriam Walker, Alta Webster. Isabel Rogers, Dot Webster, Mary Mllllroe, Mary dimming, Mary Olive Thomas how to hold the racket. TnggU, did yon miss The tournaments held in the spring and in the fall are always popular and well-represented. The singles tournament was won by Tennis Club President Vir- ginia Tuggle, who defeated Mary Olive Thomas. Tennis is also popular with the beginners who feel that they ought to know at least how to hold a racket if they are to get along at all, for everyone plays tennis! Classes are organized so that girls of equal ability play with one another and thus give competition for a stimulating game. Each girl takes her game to heart and tries to improve her technique so that she may become just a little bit better than that partner on the other side of the net. Miss Mitchell is the instructor, and she is assisted in many of her classes by various members of the Tennis Club. Miss Mitchell instructs the tenn is fans. ACTING CLUB On the first nice day, one usually sees the members of the Outing Club meeting at the gym for one of their famous breakfast hikes or all-day excursions. Tryouts are held in the spring and are based on the knowledge acquired from the course conducted in first aid, nature study and outdoor cooking given each prospective member. This year the club met early in the fall at Harrison Hut to make the plans for the year. It was agreed that hikes would be taken every three weeks. On Thanksgiving the club went to Coffee Hill for a breakfast hike and later that month some of the members joined the Appalachian Trail Club on a five-mile hike from Amicalola Falls to Southern Shore. On another evening, the club had a star study with Dr. Christian. ; « ?« ' . " Outing Club members take to a shady path. Patty, Hazel, and May in the horse show. Pally Barbour gets the trophy in the bone show. I! I I) I I li The Physical Education department offers horse- back riding in both the spring and fall seasons. At almost any time of day then, Mrs. Taylor ' s station wagon is a familiar sight down by the gym, for the stables are out from town, and this is the means ot transportation to them. Each girl must learn to handle various types of horses under all conditions; in the ring or on cross country trails. Many of the girls learn to saddle and bridle their mounts, and some of the girls like to try a few jumps while riding. Agnes Scott ' s outstanding equestrienne this year was Patty Barbour who took the laurels in the three-gaited class in the horse show last fall. Top pair of riders was May Lyons and Hazel Tav- lor, who won that class in the show. The man- ager of Riding Club is Mamie Sue Barker. V s j ■» 1 S li -; - Jk 1 sc fosjjij . ' - - , V ARCHERY In the Spring r.nd Fall Agnes Scott ' s Robin Hoods invade the hockey field. Classes in archery are held, and a bull ' s eye really brings forth excited shrieks no matter how advanced the archer is. Some of the members of the Archery Club represent Agnes Scott at the National Telegraphic Archery Contest each year. Our members in recent years have been frequent winners in the southern district. The archery cup is awarded at Agnes Scott annually to the individual receiving the highest score in this contest. Perfect form will bring in the bull ' i n GOLF " Fore! " is becoming the cry of more and more Hot- tentots as the years go by. Besides the overcrowded and very popular instruction class, the Golf Club has been active in competition among its own mem- bers. Flag tournaments and the " hidden holes " tournament, which was won this year by Dot Kahn, have been enthusiastically enjoyed. The Club is very active in the spring and fall and admits its members on a tryout by score system. The pride and joy of the club this year has been the putting green which was available all winter. It has been the scene of many putting tournaments and much practicing. The season ended this year with a final tournament and the presentation of the golf cup to the winner. Miss Wilbliril can instruct by a fine example. Given Hill, Mary Olive Thomas, Pat Pen Dot Kahn, and Ann Hllhman watch Mi Alexander follow through. THE LIGHT The modern dance group ,,, a striking movement. The chain of folk dancers for a perfect " S. " During the winter quarter, dancing is offered to those students who wish to de- velop poise, grace, and muscular control. There are many classes to choose from so that each girl may pick the one most appealing to her. Modern dancing is probably the most strenuous of the types. The development of muscular control and movement with rythmn is the object of this type of dance. The patterns formed with these movements make it very striking to watch as well as to dance. Natural dancing or " flit " is designed to help in the development of beauty of carriage and grace. The Polka and natural movements such as running, walking or jumping are taught under the able work of Mrs. Lapp. Social dancing, the most popular dance group on the campus, is especially organized to keep those ball room dance lovers up on the latest Conga and Rhumba, as well as to give practice in the older steps like the unforgettable waltz. It is very helpful to anyone who might be a little shy to know she can step right into the most intricate dance step with perfect ease. The folk dancing class, which studied the early and late American periods this year, became perfectionists in the Virginia Reel, as they showed in the dance recital given in late February. The modern, natural, and folk dance groups all participated in this exhibition and gave an excellent variety of rhythms typifying each type. These various classes formed much of the background for the many who took part in May Day. FANTASTIC The modem dancers work hard to get this statuesque effect. Intricate design is a basis of folk dancing. A " flit " class lays on hands for two groups of fo Agnes Scoffs top athletes. First row: Mary Dean Lott, Clara Rountree, Gay Currie, Ann Gellerstedt. . .

PUS To gain the privilege of wearing the Agnes Scott pin is the height of ambition for every athlete at the College. The award is given to the girls who are the most outstanding athletic participants. It is based on points which may be gained through taking part in sport contests, being a mem- ber of a class or varsity team, or serving on the Athletic Board. The pin, which is awarded instead of a letter this year, is given to those making sixteen hundred points, and a star is awarded to those who make an additional twelve hundred. A girl who had already gained a letter, is priv- ileged to get a pin if she wishes. Ann Gellerstedt, president of Athletic Association Board, received her letter last year for participation in hockey, basketball, swimming and service on the Board. Gay Currie, vice-president of Athletic Association, won her letter through participation in hockey, basketball, Out- ing Club, and positions on the Athletic Board. Annie Wilds gained her points through activities on hockey and basketball teams. Alta Webster won her letter last year through taking part in basketball, hockey, swimming and tennis. Dot Webster, who is an old Agnes Scott stand-by, made her points through her positions on the Athletic Associa- tion Board and through her activities in hockey, tennis and basketball. Betty Ann Brooks is wearing her letter for her participa- tion in basketball, hockey and swimming. Mary Dean Lott, senior basketball captain this year, made her points in hockey and in basketball. Doris Hasty made her points for her letter last year through hockey, basketball and swimming. Martha Dale ' s activities in hockey, basketball and swim- ming gained her a pin this year. Clara Rountree is wearing her pin for the points piled up from hockey, basketball and swimming activities. Russ ami Polly show what they think of Hitler at the A. A. Fair.

A. %g ffi In the materialistic civilization of today, Art has been considered impractical, abstract and useless. Yet since the time of the earliest civilization this branch of the Liberal Arts has expressed the height of a nation ' s culture. The study of Art at Agnes Scott is designed to familiarize the student with its basic aims and principles. Then no mat- ter how the form of expression varies, the student will have a background for true Art apprecia- tion. Up in the spacious, well-lit rooms on third floor Buttrick Hall are the studios where girls may sketch and paint under the direction of Miss Louise Lewis. Drawing still-life, sketching from living models, designing and sculpture may be studied, or students may take courses in the his- tory and appreciation of Art. Moreover, open exhibitions throughout the year do their part to keep this branch of the Liberal Arts flourishing on our campus.

We appreciate the sympathy and encouragement of the administration, the patience of faculty and students in posing for pic- tures at any time, and the generosity of the various organizations in letting us interrupt many of their presentations with a flash of the cam- era. We are grateful, too, to the student budget and to the student organi- zations for their financial support. Besides these friends on the campus, the Silhouette is indebted to Mr. Ware of Gaspar-Ware studios, to Mr. Young of Foote and Davies Company and Miss Morgan and Mr. Stubblefield of Photo-Process Engraving Company for their efficient service and sound advice on all matters, technical as well as otherwise. The Business and Editorial Staff of the Silhouette of 1942 express their deepest thanks to these people.
