tatej ' J o-t a {tLe HIEHES Science has come to the front this year, since the need for well- trained scientists is increasing. Agnes Scott is doing her part in educating students in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, as shown by the overcrowded labs in every department this year. The Biology Department is headed by Professor MARY STUART MacDOUGALL, who is known internationally as a Protozoologist. At present she is doing research on the genetics of Protozoa. Her book, BIOLOGY, THE SCIENCE OF LIFE, written in collaboration with Mr. Hegner, was released from the press in March and was used in the General Biology course. Students were happy to find in her book a large number of pictures, many of which were drawn by former Agnes Scott students. Associate Professor ERNEST H. RUNYON teaches Botany and Bacteriology, and takes a great deal of interest in all living things. His Local Flora field trips are the envy of students who have formal organized labs. A devoted father of three girls, he often brings his entire family to various campus functions. Instructors in Biology are " BEE " MILLER and FRANCES McCALLA who conduct all the labs. " Bee " can be found almost any after- noon in freshman lab. Comparative Anatomy, or Embryology lab. " Frank " has freshman lab, Invertebrate Zoology, and Genetics labs. Both " Bee " and " Frank ' are fond of outdoor sports and are favor- ites to invite on outings to the woods. Both are members of Mortar Board. Well-known to all upperclassmen is Professor ROBERT B. HOLT, head of the Chemistry Department. He conducts his classes in- formally by calling every girl by her first name. He can make • Mr. Christian can demonstrate several physical principles on this " wave apparatus. ' anyone understand the language of Chemistry. He takes a deep interest in every girl through his work with the Electives Committee, and as adviser to the senior class. When not in class. Golf, Ro- tarians, and the woods, claim his interest. Associate Professor PHILIPPA GILCHRIST con- ducts advanced laboratory courses. Her quiet, thorough manner and intellectual outlook inspire good work in her students. Lab instructors and real helpers in times of ne- cessity are Mrs. ROY DAVIS and Mrs. MARY WALKER FOX. By their patience and clear ex- planations, they help beginning students in Chem- istry make the right start. The Physics Department is represented by its only Professor, Mr. SCHUYLER M. CHRISTIAN, whose interest in every phase of student activity has made him a person very much in demand. He is a member of War Council and a Mortar Board adviser. Off campus he is the Community Service Representative of the War Price and Rationing Board. His chief interest is his family of three girls. His newest hobby is raising rabbits in his back yard. • Miss Miller prepares a dennonstration to show Miss McCalla, Miss MacDougall, Mr. Runyon, and Miss Stiliwell. • Miss Gilchrist, Mrs. Fox, and Mr. Holt see successfully through our years of chemistry.

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.
