7l IDMIMSTRATIOi At the times when Buttrick is not alive with students soing to and from classes, the administrative officers of the college are still busily pursuing their never-ending work. On the first floor where the faculty, students, and visitors can readily find them, are the offices of the president, registrar, treasurer, business manager, and the Admissions and Electives Committees. MR. S. GUERRY STUKES, who is both Dean of the Faculty and Registrar besides being an important professor on the faculty, knows all about every student. Even before our entrance to Agnes Scott, he corresponds with us and later acts as adviser in our academic work. After graduation his efforts are expended to secure positions for us. Mr. Stakes ' ability to laugh at himself and others can put even the most nervous student at ease. MR. R. B. CUNNINGhlAM, the efficient Business Manager of the college, is well-known for his friendly manner of engaging in chats with students he meets on Campus while he walks to work. hHis duties involve ordering almost anything from centrifuges to shrubbery, hie is never too busy to help the business managers of the student pub lications with their problems. MR. J. C. TART, Treasurer of the college, is seen most often in the college bank, and is heard most often saying his characteristic " You ' re welcome! " He is responsible for retaining an alumna each year to help him in the bookstore. Among the several standing committees of the faculty, the ones which have more direct contact with the students are the Admissions and the Electives Committees. When bewildered freshmen descend upon Agnes Scott on opening day, they are taken to the ADMISSIONS COMMITTEE which has the tremendous job of helping them decide what courses to take. Miss Alexander, the chairman. Miss Gaylord, and Miss Christie, all teach freshmen as well as upperclassmen and know well the problems of new students. Guardian angels of the upperclassmen are Mr. Holt, chairman. Miss Smith, and Miss Torrance, of the ELECTIVES COMMITTEE. They help sophomores, juniors, and seniors keep their schedules in good running order, and most important of all, help them choose or settle their major and minor courses. • A ready wit is Mr. Stukes ' chief claim to popularity. • Mr. Cunningham is never too busy to chat. • Mr. Tart takes care of our money. • Miss Gaylord, Miss Christie, and Miss Alex ander are ready to help freshmen choos their courses. Those blue cards are carefully checked by Miss Torrance, Mr. Holt, and Miss Smith.
