1 Uii i tL DEO d Iti an(X licc i tant CLAHHUHL A heart-warming " hello " is Miss Scandrett ' s greeting to everyone she meets. MISS CARRIE SCANDRETT, the Dean of Students, is one of those remarkable persons who has the ability to remember everyone ' s name. No doubt this is one of the reasons she is able to be a true sympathizer in all the problems of the students. Any girl always feels free to seek a conference with Miss Scandrett, for her friendly smile, her gracious man- ner, and good advice are a never-failing source of comfort, hier West Lawn apartment is often the scene of teas at which she dispenses not only refreshments but also encour- agement and charm. MISS CHARLOTTE HUNTER, our poised and capable Assistant Dean of Students, likes to meet the young men and the parents who visit the girls at school. They never fail to find a welcome in the Dean ' s office, which she keeps home- like with garden flowers. She was with us during the fail quarter, but from January to next September is on leave of absence to continue her studies in English at Duke University. MISS ISABELLA WILSON, secretary to the Dean of Students, assists in all activities of the Dean ' s office. The signing in and out, the record of cuts, schedules, and other jobs are attended to cheerfully by " Bella " . 1 Miss Charlotte Hjnter understands your problems — and knows the answers. Bella never fa students. to have a good time with the

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.

O.t EHLISH 3. f iHtent eY atii4ten. For the past several years, English has been the nnost popular subject taught at Agnes Scott. This year it again leads all other courses in the number of majors. The large number of interesting courses taught, and of course our English faculty, are responsible for its popularity. Mr. GEORGE P. HAYES, Professor of English, is well known to many upperclassmen for his classes in Shakespeare and the European Classics. A true scholar himself, he inspires his students to do their best work. He takes an active part in the program of Pi Alpha Phi debating society as the adviser. For advanced debaters he holds a class in Argumentation. In fair w eather he enjoys playing tennis on the campus, and is one of the most enthusiastic players in the faculty-varsity hockey game each fall. Miss EMMA MAY LANEY, Associate Professor, enjoys her Chaucer and Modern Poetry classes most of all. She is known to most students for giving them an inspiring introduction to English Literature. As faculty chairman of the Student Lecture Association she arranges with the student members the public lectures for the year. A very busy person, she finds time to be an enthusiastic adviser to the poetry club. • Miss Laney, Miss Christie, and Miss Preston discuss a new English text. • Miss Morrison, Miss Leyburn, and Miss Gellcrstcdt select a chart to use in freshman classes. • Students look to Mr. Hayes for Literature, cholarly introduction to English Eighteenth Century prose is the special interest of Miss ELLEN DOUGLASS LEYBURN, Assistant Professor. Outside of her classes, she assists in the production of the May Day pageant each year and is faculty adviser for the Aurora, student literary magazine. During her spare time she knits for the Red Cross and serves in the college First Aid Unit. Miss JANEF PRESTON, also an Assistant Professor, is par- ticularly interested in Romantic and Victorian poetry, and is a poet herself. In connection with her interest in creative writing, she is faculty adviser for B. O. Z., student writing club. This year she and Miss Morrison revived the Fotio, a creative writing society for members of the freshman class. Our own American literature is Assistant Professor ANNIE MAY CHRISTIE ' S favorite field. When she is not busy teach- ing or working with the Admissions Committee and the Lec- ture Association, she loves to dig in her garden and listen to symphonic music. Her friendly interest in the students themselves makes her one of the best-liked people on campus. Miss CLARA MORRISON has been at Agnes Scott only two years, and already she is well known to the students through her courses in Freshman English and English Litera- ture. Her special interest is linguistics, or the development of the English language. Fellowship student in the department is Miss ANN GEL- LERSTEDT, a 1942 graduate of Agnes Scott. Freshmen find her an understanding helper with their problems. 19
