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
