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.

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

Mr. Stukes ' Informal classes are interesting and full of laughs e Miss Omwake and Miss Dexter examine a testing apparatus for an Experimental Psychology class. i iit UtateMt tJ- In tlie JJeyya ' ctmenh at PHILOSOPHY -EDUUTIOi -PSYCHOLOGY Psychology is a popular course of study at Agnes Scott. Stu- dents have found in it many practical applications in learning, and in social and business contacts. The Education courses lead to a teaching certificate which many girls earn. Philosophy is a challenge to clear thinking and students find it very worth while. The departments of Philosophy and Education and Psychology are headed by the versatile Mr. S. GUERRY STUKES, who is also Registrar a nd Dean of the Faculty. He is well known among the educational institutions of the country. Mr. Stuke ' s lectures in Psychology are informal and offer many opportunities for the students to ask questions. Students find that he knows how to get across the necessary information. They discover, too, that learning their lessons with the aid of the illustrative stories he tells is a delightful approach to study. Friendly with the stu- dents, Mr. Stukes is always liberal with his jokes and is well- known on campus for his excellent sense of humor. Miss EMILY DEXTER, Associate Professor of Psychology and Education, finds time to be active in activities both on and off the campus. Among them, she took a course in first-year Spanish and enjoyed it greatlv. The oart of her work in which she finds the greatest pleasure is that of preparing and giving intelligence tests and other tests used in Experimental Psychology class. At the DeKalb County branch of the Office of Civilian Defense she taught a course in child care, a subject in which she is very much interested. Her cheerful nature does much toward making her classes interesting and pleasant. Miss KATHERINE OMWAKE, the Assistant Professor of Psy- chology and Education, is a great aid to her students in helping them make their vocational choices. Her knowledge and ex- perience with many types of vocations enables her to stress the practical side of the various kinds of work. With Miss Dexter she taught a course in child care for the O. C. D. Together they have written the widely-used text book, An Introduction to the Fields of Psychology. Mr. LAWRENCE D. HASKEW, from the Emory University faculty, is serving this year as a part-time Professor of Educa- tion on the campus. During the winter quarter he taught General Education, and during the spring supervised practice teaching.
