P " " ™ ™ n HHHH l,, ' II m . " 1 Ik gfli JH M i «|| n ■ " ' ' ii tefi ass Mr, Johnson has a friendly smile for all his singers. L «t tate at a MUSIC The Fine Arts at Agnes Scott have a definite place in providing for the cultural development of each student. When classes are over music and art bring satisfying relaxation. Professor CHRISTIAN W. DIECKMANN, head of t he Music De- partment, finds time to teach piano and organ and conduct the String Ensemble as well as to compose music. Occasionally he can be persuaded to play his compositions in chapel. A gifted musician, he is Dean of the Georgia Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. A part-time Professor of Music on campus is Mr. HUGH HODG- SON, of the University of Georgia faculty, v ho teaches a class in Operatic and Concert Music. He is responsible for our fine Monday evening musicals which feature the best local artists of instrumental and vocal music. Voice Professor LEWIS H. JOHNSON is popular with all the students he directs in the Glee Club, College Choir, and the Special Chorus. Music lovers on campus and in Atlanta and Decatur look forward to the Christmas Carol program in December, and a popular Gilbert and Sullivan operetta in April, both of which he skillfully directs. ART A most fascinating sight awaits the young artist in the art studio on third floor Buttrick. Miss LOUISE GARLAND LEWIS, head of the Art Department, is there, surrounded by colorful paintings, statues, easels, odd " objects, " and eager students who want to learn how to use water color, pastels, oil, and charcoal. Miss Lewis also teaches Art History, which she illustrates with her excellent collection of slides. An exhibit of her paintings is held each year in the Library during Alumnae Week. an I SPEECH Many praises to Miss FRANCES K. GOOCH for her direction of the outstanding performances of the Blackfriars Dramatic Club, which we always enjoy. As Associate Professor of English and head of the Speech Department, she conducts several classes in speech. By the use of individual phonograph records she helps each girl recog- nize her own speech faults, and gives her various corrective exercises to practice. At each performance of the Blackfriars you will find Miss RO- BERTA WINTER busy behind the scenes supervising make-up, light- ing, and properties. As Assistant Professor of Speech, she keeps busy teaching classes, her most Interesting one being Play Produc- tion, When a play is to be put on the radio. Miss Winter skillfully takes charge. Miss Winter and Miss Gooch hope to attract many ne Blackfriars with their eye-catching posters. 23

totcAMtJ- a muiStui V The study of our English Bible is a required course of the curriculum and is greatly instrumental in helping to fulfill the second ideal of the ' college — that of a " simple religious faith " . Mrs. ALMA SYDENSTRICKER, Professor of Bible, is well qualified for her position by her knowledge of ancient languages and her several trips to thel Holy Land, where she has done some archaeo- logical research. She has read the Bible in a dozen or more differ- ent languages. A gracious hostess, she often invites students to tea in her home. Off campus she teaches a Women ' s Bible Class in ' .Decatur. Associate Professor JAMES P. GILLESPIE is admired by his stu- dents for his well-planned lectures which are drawn up from a syllabus he wrote himself. As an adviser to the Bible Club he is helpful in directing its interesting program. Mr. Gillespie is a preacher as well as a teacher. During the summer months he con- ducts religious services in North Carolina, his home state. In Decatur he is a supply preacher for several churches. a« LIBRilRl St4 Our beautiful Library is one of Agnes Scott ' s best known build- ings, for it is one of the first places the girls bring their visitors to see. Credit for the skillful and efficient plan on which it is run goes to Miss EDNA RUTH HANLEY, librarian, who designed the build- ing herself. Her book, " College and University Library Buildings " was written as a hobby after she had studied dozens of school library plans. As though she didn ' t see enough books in her life, she collects books on printing and book-making. She likes to read biography. This year she took up skating as a substitute for her favorite sport, riding. Miss Hanley ' s assistants in the Library are Miss CAROLYN BLACK, Miss LUCY CLINE, and Miss EMILY PHILIPS. Miss Black comes from Greensboro, North Carolina, where she did public school library work. Both Miss Cline and Miss Philips completed their library courses at Emory last year. They all like to read, and listen to good music, taking time out for skating and picnicking, Mrs. Sydenstricker and Mr. Gillespie plan their lectun aid of maps. Miss Haniey keeps our library well stocked with good books. I Miss Carolyn Black, Miss Ennlly Philips, and Miss Lucy Cline can help you find almost anything you want in the library.

On. p.4 u. .4 MilTHEMilTICS Mathematics is becoming increasingly popular with the students because many new positions are open now for women well prepared in statistics, analytics, and other fields. Miss LESLIE GAYLORD is Assistant Professor of Mathematics and is the acting head of the depart- ment during the leave of absence of Captain Robin- son, now serving in the United States Army. Miss Gaylord enjoys her work and has infinite patience even with the students who are confused by Freshman Alge- bra and Trigonometry. Her clear explanations make the difficulties seem much less. Miss ANN VANN, Instructor of Mathematics, and a welcome addition to the department last year, up- holds the standards of good teaching. Her friendli- ness on campus has made her many friends among her students. This year we have also Mr. ALKEMA, of the Emory University faculty as a part-time instructor in Business Statistics. i ,e ansve hAvS5 GaV o.a an ,J . ECONOMICS I SOCIOLOGY an Our sociologist is Miss MILDRED RUTHERFORD MFLL, Professor of Economics and Sociology. She is particularly interested in studies of labor problems and family welfare. These subjects interest her now, espe- cially, since the rights of workers to strike can easily become a severe menace to our country. Miss Mell works on the Social Planning Council of Atlanta, and all her off-campus work is done through this council. • Miss Mell gives helpful outlines while she lectures.
