9 4 5 Published by the Students of AGNES SCOTT COLLEGE DECATUR, GEORGIA ELAINE KUNIANSKY Editor ELIZABETH ESPEY Business Manaser r w f- PPIffl jllllgn,,, - - - ■ V 1 .if ' 88 ■ , 7 0 and We are this generation ' s first " war class. " War struck when we were freshmen. As we are about to graduate, it is still raging. While our country has been fighting for its very life, we have had the privilege of continuing our studies here — in comparative peace and plenty. We have been doing our part in small ways — buying war stamps, smashing tin cans, rolling bandages — but if that were our total contribution toward the war effort, we would feel little justification for being here during these crucial years. It is what we feel we can contribute in the future, because we have been at Agnes Scott, that makes us feel that these four years have been well spent. The world will need the skills that we have learned here. The world will need, too, the understanding and tolerance that our studies have brought. Most of all, the world, in all its chaos and despair, will need the courage and the faith in the future that stem only from those who know that the things they are living for are truly worth while. Such a lasting set of values Agnes Scott has helped us find. ' ■v Xs s4ctivitie ' Dedication For helping us see deeper than the surface into those values which are true and lasting, we dedicate this, the 1945 SILHOUETTE, to DR. GEORGE P. HAYES 76e Me4e Young, and a little bewildered, but eager to learn to live wisely, students enter college. It is the faculty who help to guide them, who point out paths that might otherwise go un- seen. M X ttK. ■ ..-A- ' jflfe X At 8:30 students emerge from the various dorms and the dining room and strike out across the campus toward Buttriek. Here all morning (and often part of the afternoon) Hottentots listen in- tently to lectures, agonize over tests. At the 9:30 bell every girl stumbles down the steps in her haste to get to the mail-room, trying to out-distance the person ahead politely, but firmly. A coke in the book-store downstairs offers another opportunity for a break in the morning routine. Endless hours are spent in the library (below). Part of that time is spent in leisurely study, part in hectic cramming and last-minute term-paper writing — part, too, in animated conversation in sup- pressed tones. Into the beautiful Gothic door of Presser come many notable celebrities. Inside, in simple, dignified Gaines Chapel, they lecture to expectant audiences. Blackfriars give their plays there. Twice monthly students come to enjoy a music appreciation hour in Maclean Auditorium upstairs. And every morning they enter " the chapel " for the singing of hymns and a few minutes of prayer. Murphey Candler stands placidly in the sun, waiting for the 4:30 rush to the Pair-a-dice. Then sophomores entertain Hottentots (at a profit) with sandwiches and music. At other times during the day students come to enjoy a magazine, listen to the radio, or use the kitchen to concoct some special delicacy. Down at the gym (below) other kinds of relaxation are offered. A swim in the pool, or a set of tennis are favorite ways of getting much-needed exercise. Eii ■ ..- .sit -..— !-• ' ,- Inman is the home of the freshmen. Upperclassmen look back fondly on days spent there. They remem- ber that if someone sat down to play the piano in the lobby, there was usually a group quickly gath- ered to sing. In the spring they could look out on the beautiful rose arbor in the Alumnae Garden. In hot summer weather their roof was the popular gathering place for sun-bathers from all over the campus. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors now live in Rebe- kah Scott (right). It is by thus living side by side that they came to know each other better. All inmates of Rebekah will tell you that this is the best dormitory on campus — mainly, they claim, be- cause living there permits the lazy ones to dash into the dining room at the last possible minute. The campus does not always look spring-like at Agnes Scott. Winter comes, and with it tall bare trees. The thin, curving branches of a tree reach out for the top of Main. On front campus the bare trees are seen silhouetted against the sky. They cast their shadows in grotesque patterns on the ground below. Look- ing up to the tower of Main we see bare branches, silvery in the sun-light. Winter brings a beauty all its own. briskly walking to hi!

SENIOR OFFICERS MINNIE MACK President DOROTHY LEE WEBB Vice-President JOAN STEVENSON Secretary-Treasurer 34 Come on, you kids, pull! Nothing W kid-day f or " S as silly This business of being Seniors startled us at first. For three years we had thought of " Senior " as having some special aura surrounding it — the unattainable — the only hoped for. Now that we are Seniors, we find no deep mystery at all attached to the name. Of course, our dreams of mortar boards, gowns, diplomas are coming true in an unbelievably quick fashion. Before we know it, we will no longer be students at Agnes Scott, where we have spent four years crowded with activity. Friends, asso- ciations, glimpses of the truth have become ours. This year has been filled mainly with happy days. Traditions, classes, scholarship have meant a good deal more to us. We are grateful for the opportunity which has been ours here at Agnes Scott. We pass on to the class of ' 46 the responsibilities, honors, and expectations each Senior Class has shared since this college was founded.

Several " top " Sophs made the varsity. Our handsome South " Good Night, Sweet D Manor. They liked us almost as our lessons weren ' t slighted.

FRESHMAN OFFICERS DABNEY ADAMS President LIDA WALKER Vice-President LOUISE McLAURIN Secietary-Treasur.-r 84 Rush hou t the Fresh m an Shoe Shop. The freshmen stop a minute during a stunt rehearsal. In attempting to record the history of the class of 1948, an aspiring author would be able to sum up the first week of activity the poor bewildered freshmen endured with one word. Lines! Lines for registration, lines for classification, lines for schedules, and lines for meals. It was quite a relief when classes began. On September 22, the class of ' 48 got its first taste of college work — and what a taste! Many were the times we had been warned of the huge chasm existing between college and high school curriculums, but it was up to Agnes Scott to prove to the poor stunned freshmen that there was more to college than play. The class of ' 48, however, is made of stern caliber, and it struggled slowly back to its feet. The class really began to settle down when Dabney Adams was elected Freshman Stunt Chairman. Under her leadership, and encouraged by their sister class, the freshmen buckled down with a determination to win the Black Cat. On October 14, the class came through with flying colors and the Black Cat was placed in Inman lobby. In mid-Novembei the excitement of return to school the opened, with " Pagi- business boom. class officers were elected. Then came exams and Christmas holidays. On the traditional freshman shoe shine shop was Violette taking over the job of making During the last days of Februar huddle and elected Tina Hewson e mine Manor.

THE 1945 Difficult as it is to capture the life and spirit of a place, that is what this year ' s SILHOUETTE has tried to do. The staff has tried to picture life on the campus simply and honestly, because simplicity and honesty are characteristic of Agnes Scott. The shortages and inconveniences of the war challenged the staff to make use of all the resources available. After much planning and hard work, disappointment and elation, the staff is happy to present the 1945 SILHOUETTE. and Elaine talk over the annual layout.

Development was the theme of the newspaper this year. First, the News tried to give a complete account of campus life. Every news item was covered not only with an eye toward giving the " news of the day, " but also with the idea of leaving a complete record of the year ' s progress. Second, the News endeavored to be the mirror of public opinion. Individual criticism and contributions were welcomed. Letters to the editor were not thrown in the waste-basket, but were printed with the hope of bettering the college community. It is Marjo the reporters who d = ie Cole.

SCOTT NEWS Third, the staff tried to develop in the journalistic field. By accepting new styles of headlines, make-up, and advertising the staff tried to vary the paper each week. Extra editions were put out occasionally. The Christmas extra was in red and green, and the exam extra was on blue paper and was called the " Agnes Scott Blews. " Origi- nality was always in evidence; no one will forget " The Boyd ' s Eye View, " or the fea- ture on Tabby, or those amazing cross-word puzzles. In January the first semester ' s papers were mailed to the Associated Collegiate Press for judging and rating for the year. It will take several months for the rating to be announced. No matter what the rating, though, the staff feels that it has had a very successful year. Both the editorial staff with its " nose for news ' ' and the busi- ness staff with its " nose to the grind " made this success possible. Liz and Mary Necly work along with Dootsie a Jane Anne to keep the business affairs of the Nc thly. Getting ads may be a hard job, but these giris have mastered the art. . . .

THE The AURORA staff Virginia Bowie, Joanne INGE PROBSTEIN Editor VIRGINIA BOWIE Mana g ing Editor ELIZABETH FARMER Assistant Editor DOT ALMOND Art Editor MONTENE MELSON Business Manager AURORA, Agnes Scott ' s oldest publication, is chiefly concerned with stimulating literary activity on the campus. It works together with the three writing groups on campus, B. O. Z., Folio, and Poetry Club, in securing its materials for publication. With the fusion of such a cross-section of students, the campus — its thoughts and feelings, its interests and problems, its frivolity and high seriousness — finds expression. This year AURORA made the effort to get contributors from a wider group, believing that self-expression by means of writing is something that should come naturally to a greater number of people. Campus criticism proved helpful to writers new to the field, and new writers stimulated others to contribute. In this way all types of creative writing were represented. In spite of all difficulties — paper shortage, printing ad- versities, not to mention making " the deadline " — a capable staff brought out fall, winter and spring editions of the AURORA. AURORA The ambition of members of Folio, Freshman writing club, was to have their work published in the AURORA. First row: Virginia Andrews, Minnie Hamilton, Lida Walker. . . .

STUDENT GOVERNMENT MOLLY MILAM President WENDY WHITTLE Vice-President BETTY LONG Secretary LUCILLE BEAVER Treasurer On our campus Student Government Association is an integrates organization for the entire college community. Through its work students learn to appreciate the ideals of useful and honorable living — finding such ideals the basis for fuller and more harmonious living together. Fall found the year ' s plans taking form at the retreat meeting of the Executive Committee. Small committees were appointed to handle the various activities, and the next week the new year was " officially " begun with Orien- tation Week.

Student Government members handled bargains in the Second Hand Book Store, kept the mimeograph and sewing machines humming, took inventory of Murphey Candler building, and conducted a chapel session on par- liamentary procedure. After Christmas there was the in- evitable wee-hour fire drill, and, later on, the Activities Tea, presenting the campus activities to the freshmen. A highlight of the year was Student Government Week, when skits and talks in a series of chapel programs pre- sented the work and theme of the organization to the stu- dents. Mrs. Marc Weersing, an alumna, was guest speaker for one phase of the year ' s theme, " Respect, Share, Participate — Live in a Happy Community. " With this idea as a basis for working and thinking, members sought a higher degree of cooperation and a deeper undeistanding of the real meaning of Student Govern- ment in relation to campus life, to individual ideals, and to college education as a whole. Behind all of its activities students were conscious of the spirit of Student Government on the Agnes Scott campus, and in entering into this spirit they found pleas- ure in respecting, sharing, and participating. CHRISTIAN Ginny inspired Christian Association with her own ideals of living. VIRGINIA CARTER President MARY MONROE Vice-Pres.dent MARGARET BEAR Secretary STRATTON LEE Treasurer With the theme, " Jesus Christ the Same Yesterday, Today, and For- ever, " Christian Association started an eventful year. Calendars, with an added summary of the events of Christian Association Week, greeted the old students. At the various train stations members of the Asso- ciation, with the customary purple and white ribbons well in view, greeted the new Hottentots. Dr. Michael Coleman started the year of speakers with his Inspiring talk on England. During Christian Asso- ciation Week Miss Cobbs spoke on the theme; social service work and the budget were discussed in other chapel programs. Special activi- ties for the freshmen included a welcoming picnic, a " sing " of tradi- tional Agnes Scott hymns, and Freshman Cabinet — their own part of Christian Association. Sophomore Cabinet ' s programs were of campus- wide interest, as they discussed various religious beliefs. - : " • ■-■.;: " -. ' ■- ' ■ ... ■ ' ■ ••■ ' ' ' ' - ■ ■■ ..

This year ' s Mortar Board chapter, tapped early last April, began its activities by assisting with High School Day. Projects in Mortar Board ' s service program -for this year included sponsoring a vocational guidance shelf in the library; entertaining transfers at a weiner roast; helping with skating parties for the freshman and sophomores; acting as hostesses for the lecturers brought to the campus by the English department; sponsoring a " Charm Week, " which featured social usage tests and a demonstration on make-up; present- ing a series of marriage classes for seniors and engaged girls. Mortar Board entertained at a tea in the library during Boole Week in November, and in February par- ents of day-students were invited to meet the faculty at another tea. At its recognition service in November, the Agnes Scott chapter had as guests the members of Mortar Board at the University of Georgia. The speaker for this service was Dr. McCain, who reviewed the history of Mortar Board at Agnes Scott and told of the attain- ments of this organization in contributing to the life of the college and in upholding its ideals.

Regular Sunday afternoon trips to Lawscn Hospital and occasional visits on Mon- day or Thursday nights were very much appreciated by the convalescent soldiers. The Red Cross Staff As- sistants ' course, held during February, was a real suc- cess with sixty-four girls qualifying as Staff Assistants. The campus was " kept up " on war news by Mrs. Sim ' s discussions on current events and by talks by other faculty members and outside speakers. Knitting, " smashing " cans, and giving blood were among the other activities encouraged. Perhaps the biggest challenge of the council to the campus was the Agnes Scott War Service Fund. In the fall the students piedged their contribution for the year, the total amount going over $2,700. This was divided proportionately among all the agencies which would otherwise have held separate drives on the campus. Frances Brougher, Student Chairman, with the coop- eration of the Council and the whole campus, made War Council ' s year a very successful one.

" The season opened with Will Durant ' s lecture on The Lessons of History, which reached a large and appreciative audience. Dr. Durant is the author ot books on philosophy and social problems, among the most famous of which is his Story of Philosophy. In January came Robert Frost, well-loved American poet, farmer, and teacher. Mr. F-rost read informally from his own poems, and during his three-day stay won the hearts of the entire campus with his affability and kindly humor. The last lecture of the year was in April, when Maur- ice Hindus, an eminent authority on Russia and author of Mother Russia, spoke. He had just returned from Europe, and thus brought with him a first-hand account of conditions there. He held a large audience spell- bound by his vibrant personality and the enthusiasm with which he spoke of Russia. In the short time h was here Mr. Frost er deared himself to th whole campus.

ETA SIGMA PHI Miss Cobbs and Miss Glick, faculty advisors, help Marion Leathers, Presi- dent, decide which of the great philosophers they will discuss at the next meeting. The Golden Age of Greece and the glory that was Rome discover deep appreciation in the spirit of Eta Sigma Phi, national honorary classical society. The Alpha Delta Chapter at Agnes Scott finds time among the studies of modern phases of culture to pay homage to the ancients. The mem- bers meet regularly to discuss the great philosophers, histo- rians, and authors whose influence has shaped intellectual and artistic existence to the present day. Although the Agnes Scott Chapter is small, its efforts are strong in spreading interest in classics among large groups. Each year the members award medals to students of various high schools who have shown proficiency in the study of Latin. One of the most helpful projects which this club has carried on is the furthering of knowledge of the classics among the members themselves. Before the regularly sched- uled meetings, members read certain selections from classical literature, which they discuss and criticize when they meet. The aims of such a society are consistent with the ideals of liberal arts colleges. Therefore, it is fitting that this group should be recognized as one of the most worthwhile of clubs on the campus. The Alpha Sigma Chapter of Chi Beta Phi was established at Agnes Scott twelve years ago, and was this national hon- orary scientific society ' s first chapter for women. The members are elected twice a year by unanimous vote on the basis of active interest and scholastic achievement in one of the sciences — astronomy, biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, or psychology. Chi Beta Phi had several outstanding scientists to speak at its meetings this year. Dr. Lester, of the Geology De- partment of Emory University, presented a very interesting talk about a volcano he had visited In Mexico. Miss Mac- Dougall gave a lecture on " Malaria, " the disease on which she has been doing extensive research work. Those present at the lecture were the first to see the malarial slides which she had prepared for the government. Dr. Schuyler Christian spoke about the experiments on heredity that he has been conducting with rabbits. A formal Initiation banquet was given at the Alumnae House in the fall for the purpose of honoring the new mem- bers. At the end of each year Chi Beta Phi awards a key to the most outstanding member on the basis of scholarship, leader- ship, service to the chapter and general promise.

Prospective Bernhardts may try their hands at comedy, tragedy, or even " mellerdrammer. " This year the members pro- duced a musical farce, creating and arranging their own dances. Serious drama occupied the attention of the girls who presented selected scenes from Shakes- peare. " Will o ' the Wisp " was a chance at pure fantasy. Acting, however, is only one part of the business of producing a play. Miss Winter is an understanding and competent director of the actual histrionics; it is she who guides the complicated backstage machinery of production. Costume sketches are made to en- lighten those on the costume committee. Scenery is conceived, created and set up by the girls. Authentic props are located, ranging anywhere from French tele- phones to period furniture. Makeup experts transform youthful freshness into tottering old age, smooth so- phistication, or even horrible deformity!

De- spite war conditions which made the traditional Gilbert and Sullivan presentation impossible, Glee Club, Special Chorus, and the choir have had a full and successful year. Glee Club was introduced to the freshmen the first week of school when a short program was presented in chapel. Soon strains of familiar carols were echoing through Presser as the choir prepared for its annual Christmas program. The white dresses of the choir, the white and silver decora- tions, and the colors of the several different uniforms worn by the Georgia Tech boys, added a note of festivity to the occasion. The program was under the combined direction of Mr. Johnson, Mr. Lowrance, and Mr. Herbert. Also, in cele- bration of Christmas, a pageant, " The Child of Peace, " was given in collaboration with the speech department. The New Year meant intensified work in preparation for the spring concert; there were many discordant notes until " In The Silence of The Night " and other favorites were finally mastered for the big event. The Special Chorus, under the direction of Mr. Johnson, sang throughout the year at army camps and hospitals as well as at various civic clubs. Light opera numbers and popular songs were frequently sung by the group. Among its favorites were " Italian Street Song " and " Sylvia.

ART STUDENTS LEAGUE The Art Students League, whose membership is made up of art students and other persons inter- sted in art, has as one of its special purposes the stimulation of a deeper interest in art on the cam- pus. One way in which this plan has been pro- moted Lh is year has been through the presentation of outstanding exhibits, such as The Georgia Artist Show, and the individual exhibits of Emil Holzhouer and Claude Howell. This year the League has en- joyed the frequent visits of Mr. Lamar Dodd, head of the Art Department of the University of Georgia, who has worked with the League members particu- larly on figure drawing and still life. A very worth- while undertaking of the club has been the redec- orating of Harrison Hut. The climax of the year is the Annual Student Exhibit. Mr. Thomas, head of the Art Department, is the advisor for the League ' s activities.

Christian, Miriam Runyon, Mr. E. H. Runyon STRING ENSEMBLE " The String Ensemble is the only unorganized organization on the campus, " says Mr. C. W. Dieckmann, their capable leader. The group has been a part of Agnes Scott for the past ten years, since Mr. Dieckmann first gathered together the musically interested and talented members of the student body and faculty, and friends of the community. Until a few years ago, the group lived up to its name and was composed only of stringed instrument players. But Mr. Dieckmann ' s ability to write new and interesting parts has made the group flexible enough to include woodwinds also. There are no officers and no dues. The ensemble meets approxi- mately once a week and gives from one to three concerts during the year. Such composers as Bach, Strauss, Cui, Debussy, Saint- Saens, and Handel are among the favorite masters whose composi- tions give the players pleasure at each rehearsal. They get together because they " just like to play, " which is the best reason, after all. Debating has become more and more popular at Agnes Scott since 1922, when Pi Alpha Phi was founded. The aim of this organization is to foster interest in the age-old art of argu- mentation. The club believes that in debating one learns to think clearly, and to analyze intelligently matters of current interest. The debates held at each meeting constitute a tourna- lub. The subjects are usually chosen for their e — for example, the topic, " Should one tary service be continued after the war? ' ment within the current signifies of compulsory r year Mr. George P. Hayes, club sponsor and debate coach for the intercollegiate team, stimulates the debaters with his keen com- ments on their analyses. The intercollegiate team took part in the tournament between Georgia colleges at Emory this winter, and in the Grand Eastern Tournament, in which colleges from all over the Southeast were represented. Agnes Scott debaters also par- ticipated in separate debates with teams from the Georgia Junior College, the Uni- versity of Georgia, and the University of North Carolina.

Its purpose this year has been to discover the truth about international events, to study that truth, understanding it thoroughly, and to interpret any conclusions arrived at with regard to future world The program has been interesting and varied. In connection with the club ' s belief that citizenship at home is necessary before world citizenship is possible, I. R. C. ' s first speaker, Dr. Walter B. Posey, spoke on " Citizenship and Voting. " This talk was a very timely one, as the national election followed shortly after- wards. In a joint meeting with Emory ' s I. R. C. the club dis- cussed the results of the national election. At another meeting, Mrs. R. L. Paty, wife of Dr. Paty, formerly a medical missionary in China, gave the club inside facts about the political, social, and economic situation in China. The club later was one of the sponsors for two excellent films on China. One film was on Chinese War Relief needs, and the other about the college life of Chinese girls during the present war.

El Circulo Espanol was organized for the purpose of creating and furthering interest in the traditions, language, and customs of Spain and Latin America. Each month the club meets to chat in Spanish about school and various events of special significance to Span- ish students. One program of particular interest was held at the home of Miss Muriel Harn. Miss Ham and Mrs. Florence Dunstan told about their exciting six weeks visit in Mexico last summer. Another highlight of the year was a Christmas party given before the holidays. Miss Melissa Cilley, who has lived in Spain, presented a vivid description of the Christ- mas celebration there. Afterwards the members enjoyed singing Spanish Christmas carols and looking at a minia- ture display of the nativity scene. At a later meeting Mr. Howard Thomas lectured on important Spanish paintings from the time of the Coleman to the present period. Thoughtful senoritas think of their next tcrtulia.

The founders wanted to keep the name B. O. Z. a secret, but soon it was revealed that the letters were the pen name of Charles Dickens. The club is for those girls who like to put their ideas on paper — whether those thoughts take the form of a play, short story, essay, or just a sketch. This year the club has met every two weeks at the home of Miss Janef Preston, faculty advisor. Members read their literary efforts, and their work is discussed by the entire group. Inspiration as well as helpful criticism is gained by these discussions. POETRY CLUB The purpose of Poetry Club is to encourage the writing of creative poetry and to provide an opportunity for all who are interested to share their ideas with one another. The meetings are held monthly, at which time members read and discuss their own poems. Miss Emma May Laney, as faculty advisor for the group, shares her knowledge and offers expert criticism. Thus the would-be poets have the opportunity to share their ideas and to have them evaluated. This year the creative ability of the members was further stimulated by the visit of Robert Frost on campus. The members especially enjoyed the tea given for Mr. Frost, planned in collaboration with the other writing clubs. Here the girls were able to meet and talk informally with the famous poet. Poetry Club also had a part in planning and participating in a skit Jazzmine Manor, the Jun for the campus. In th by the writing clubs for the Class ' evening of entertainment .kit, Ruth Simpson and Bunny Weems distinguished themselves as they portrayed the Ro- manticist and the Realist. Poetry Club members enjoy listening to Ruth ' s latest composition. . . . Left to -ight: Janice Latta, Ann Murrell, President, Bunny Weems, Ruth Simpson, Secre- tary. ... Not pictured: Jean Fuller. The Bible Club was founded in the fall of 1924 to further the interest of students in Bible study and other religious activities. The theme chosen for the year 1944-45 was: " Study to show thyself approved unto God. " During the fall quarter the programs, presented by the students, were given over to study of little known but interesting personalities in or connected with Bible history. During winter and spring quarters army and navy chaplains came to talk to the members, giving them a better understanding of religion on the war fronts and what can be expected in the way of re- ligious attitudes of the returning veterans after the war. These programs proved of vital interest to the entire campus community.

The club, its function, attempts to promote bers and other students on of the Cotillion Club dancing, refreshments, which is entirely social in better dancing among its the campus. On Thanksgiving Day Cotillion members entertained th college community at their annual dance. At the juniors Jazzmine Manor the club presented a dancing exhibition During " Charm Week " the members took part projects to promote better grooming and dancing at school The amusing presentation during a student meeting of the uncharming ways a girl can act served as an incentive fo students to improve their dress and habits. N Agnes Scott girl (Cotillion Club hopes) let her stock ing seams be crooked or wear colors that do not blend. The quiz given on manners made every girl aware of the proper way to introduce friends or parents and emphasized pleasantness, especially at meals.

" Like mother, like daughter, " as the saying goes. Mem- bets of Granddaughters Club are the girls whose mothers came to Agnes Scott. The organization is of a social nature, and meets twice a month in the living room of the Alumnae House. This year the club assisted on Alumnae Day by entertaining the small children of the visiting Alumnae. The club helped the Seniors with their Founders ' Day Program on February 22, took part in " Jazzmine Manor, " and held a large banquet in the spring. Miss Eugenia Symms, former Agnes Scott student and now Alumnae Secretary for Agnes Scott, is the advisor It is a significant fact that so many of the Agnes Scott alumnae want to send their daughters to their alma mater. The large number of members in Granddaughters is a tribute to the ideals and standards of Agnes Scott. The Agnes Scott tradition is carried on in some families to such a degree that even some great-grand- daughters of this school are now enrolled.

ASSOCIATION During winter quarter anyone with paint in her hair was almost certain to be a member of Athletic Board. The reason: a new coat of paint in the A. A. Board room. From tennis tournaments to square dances, this year ' s board has presented a varied pro- gram of activities for the student body. The Athletic Board, made up of four executive officers and the managers of the various sports, held a retreat at the beginning of each quarter to plan new activities. One of the highlights of this year ' s program was the " sing " every Wednesday night in Rebekah. This was a time for everyone to get to- gether and relax. On Halloween night everyone was invited to come and sit around a big bon fire behind the gym and eat apples. In February a benefit bridge party was given to help pay for outside referees for the basketball games. Later, in February, a square dance was held in the gym. Boys from Tech and Emory were invited to come and join in the fun provided by " swing your partner, " the wheelbarrow race, and apple " juice. " The annual Athletic banquet was held in the spring, bringing another successful athletic year to a close. Trophies for the year were awarded, and the new officers installed.

Bright red apples, cheering spectators, and determined players made the season complete. The opening games were full of spirit as sister class teams clashed in true form. The seniors were victorious over the sophomores; the juniors trampied the freshmen. As the season progressed, the teams, enthusiastically sup- ported by all four classes, advanced rapidly in skill. The senior class, led by Mary Munroe and Mary Cumming, were stiff competitors for the other class teams, and managed to win all but two games. By the end of the season the freshmen and sophs had become a dangerous threat to the upper classes. But it was the undefeated |unior class team, captained by Scotty Johnson and man- HOCKEY AGAIN!

On this same afternoon the hockey manager read the names of the players on the Varsity and Sub-Varsity teams. Hockey season closed with the Faculty-Varsity game. The field was a blaze of red plaid shirts, as the faculty went " sporty. " A surprise skit was enacted in which Dr. Burns rushed across the field to save the life of Miss Hunter, who was " seriously " injured during the game. After this exciting and hilarious game refreshments were served in the gym for all the hockey players and managers.

The Sophomores and Juniors drew the Hershey bars, the Freshmen and Seniors the Life Savers. With teams so lined up the season was under way. Miss Dorothy Fugitt and Miss Frances Bennett served as referees during the season. This was the first year that outside referees officiated at every game. Funds from a bridge party, sponsored by Athletic Associa- tion, made this possible. Besides the entertainment supplied by the four fight- ing teams, side attractions added spice to many of the games. A contest was held to see which girl was the champion free-thrower. And much to the surprise of all, a guard, Jean Smoot, won. Junior Team.

Everyone who came was asked to sign her name for her class. The Sophomores tried hard to win— even Mr. Jones, the night watch- man, put his John Henry down for them— but the Juniors came out on top. The climax of the season came the night that the Varsity and Sub-Varsity was announced. Alice Beards- ley, dressed up like a genie, spread her magic over the crowd and pulled out the lucky girls. As the season came to a close it was discovered that three teams had tied for the title. The Seniors fooled the Juniors and Sophomores by pulling out in front in the last two games, becoming, even to their own surprise, the heroines of the season. This left the Freshmen in second place, with a fair warning for all teams to be on their guard next year.

YEAR ROUND SPORT Swimming Club activities began in the fall quarter with try-outs for membership. The form, speed, en- durance, and life saving ability of each applicant was tested. Betty Andrews, " Cooky " Miller, Janet Liddell, Lilaine Harris, Jenny Wren, Dale Bennett, Sweetie Calley, Marie Beason, and Ann Sproesser were added to the club as a result of the try-outs. Also during the fall quarter, swimming meets were held. The events of the meets included form swim- ming, tandem swimming, races, relays, diving, and stunts. The first meet was won by the sophomores, the second by the seniors. The highlight of swimming activities was the water pageant given during winter quarter. Two swimmers, dressed as sailors, found themselves in Davy Jones ' Locker and had to prove their skill in swimming in order to escape and return to earth. Swimming club has done much in promoting the Agnes Scott ideal of physical well being by offering many swimming activities.

In the fall and spring the tennis players can usually be found on the courts taking in some good fast sets. Soon after school started, when everyone was still in practice from summer playing, the singles tournament was held. Anne Hough was the winner. The beautiful exhibition given by two boys from Georgia Tech, Frank Willett and Howard McCall, brought out a crowd of spectators. Nothing is more conducive to a tennis game than a beautiful spring day. At first chance, racquet in hand, the tennis lovers were off for the courts trying frantically to get in form again before the doubles tourna- ment began. Three new members were added to the club in fall try-outs — Julia Slack, Sue Mitchell and Jackie Stewart. A tennis fan leads a busy and active life here with the club ' s activities, the tournaments, and afternoons of practice. TENNIS TENNIS TOURNAMENT Jackie Stewart Louise McLaurirv Mary dimming.

For the first time open periods were specified during which the archery field and equipment were available for practice. These open practice periods, along with fall and spring tournaments, suc- ceeded in making archery one of the favorite sports on Archery Club Members prepare for the Coming Tournament: Kathryn Burnett, Peggy rf Perez, Doris Street, Louisa Aichel, Bonny Hope, Carroll Taylor, Christina Yates, Barbara Kincaid, Anne Hough, Betty Turner, June MBM Thompson. SKATING Skating, now in its third year on campus, is ever increasing in popularity. For a bit of relaxation gliding across the floor to the strains of the latest popular recordings is " the very thing. " It not only is entertainment for individual students but has been used by Mortar Board and Athletic Associa- tion to give additional zest to their parties. Tenta- tive plans are in store for a skating club, the mem- bers of which will include those who are skilled in skating and everybody interested in learning how. Skating is a favorite indoor pastime for Mary Cumming, Sarah Walker, Bettye Lee Phelps, Vicky Alexander, Ann Webb, Sally Sue Stephenson, Maude Van Dyke. GOLF Golfers may often be seen strolling across the campus with bags slung over their shoulders en route to the Candler Golf Course. Although war- time transportation facilities prevent extensive trips and limit activity to the immediate vicinity, the golfers are nevertheless enthusiastic about their playing. Every spring the golf tournament is held, with the winner receiving the coveted cup. Under Miss Wil- burn ' s guidance members start long before to prac- tice for the big event. " " ' ». ?£ £» BADMINTON Badminton, in its second year on the Agnes Scott campus, has already become one of the favorite sports among the students. Under the leadership of Suzanne Watkins, student manager, the club was reorganized. Every Wednesday afternoon club members and all others interested meet in the gym for an hour of relaxation and practice. In February a doubles tournament helped to stimulate greater interest in badminton. By spring when the outdoor courts were used, the members of the club exhibited the proficiency resulting from their indoor practice. Badminton Club has proved to be a valuable addition to the campus.

These were the members of the first dance group which Agnes Scott has had in several years. The group was organized at the beginning of the year, with Louise Gardner as leader and Mrs. Harriette Lapp as faculty advisor and teacher. The first quarter of the year ' s work was given over to technique and creative work by the members. The sec- ond quarter was spent in preparation for a recital, which won the applause of the student body. Outstanding athletes wear the Agnes Scott pin. From left to right: Ann Webb, Mary Cu arah Walker, Mary Munroe. ... Not in picture: Molly Milam. ng, Dot Hunter, Sally Sue Stephe ettye Lee Phelps, WEARERS OF THE PIN AND GUARD The wearers of the Agnes Scott Pins may be found in their second home, the gym, almost any time of day. These girls have won their pins by earning points through serving on the Board of Athletic Association or by par- ticipating in various sports. A girl having 1,600 points earns a pin, and an additional 1,200 points entitles her to a guard made of the numerals of her graduation year. Mary Cumming was awarded her pin in the spring of her sophomore year. By the fall quarter of her senior year she had acquired an additional 1,200 points and now wears both the pin and guard as symbols of her partici- pation in tennis, hockey, swimming, and basketball. Molly Milam, who won her pin her junior year, is a skilled hockey and basketball player, and an expert swim- mer. Molly, who is always warning her friends about the evils of a sedentary life, haunts the gym continually. Mary Munroe also wears both the pin and guard, the pin being won in her sophomore year and the guard her senior year. You will find her almost any day either on the hockey field, the basketball or tennis courts. Dot Hunter, president of A. A., is an enthusiastic sup- porter of all sports and a hard worker on the board. She ' s a whiz at swimming. Although she has won most of her points for outstand- ing work in swimming and basketball, Bettye Lee Phelps has been an active participant in almost every sport. Sally Sue Stephenson, treasurer of A. A., can give any- one stiff competition in swimming, hockey, or basketball. Sarah Walker, secretary of A. A., is a terror on the hockey field. She is also good in tennis and basketball. Ann Webb, vice-president of A. A., plays both hockey and basketball. She always adds a little spice to any game with her English accent. eatctneb Life is not always the grim and serious busi- ness that it sometimes seems. It takes on new meaning when we can share our whims, our idle chatter, our careless laughter with a friend. 144 OUR JUDGE... AND ONE OF HIS BEAUTIES .... Burma, of " Terry and the Pirates ' MILTON A. CANIFF March Sixth 1945 Dear Miss Equeni I anticipated a problem in selecting the six photographs to be featured in THE SILHOUETTE but I didn ' t count on a fight with myself over the outcome. One of the most interesting aspects of the problem was the number of types of beauty involved and as I ' anticipated, narrowing the selection to six caused me to shuffle and re-shuffle my original decision. At first I numbered them 1-2-3-4-5-6, then I decided that it would be far better to simply indicate my six choices for the section by " X " mark; hence the six prints marked on the back with that device. It is patently unfair to an artist to jog his sensibilities with such a parade of inanimate pulchritude, then condemn him to forever wondering what the girls look like in real life. However, better a passing glance than never to have seen them at all. Cordially.

AROUND THE CAMPUS A stroll around campus reveals a world of activity. Almost any time of day Hotten- tots can be seen hurrying to classes, making a dash for the dining room, or on their way to some social or athletic event. This sec- tion is an attempt to catch a glimpse of life as it really goes on at Agnes Scott. Between, or after classes, Hottentots gather in groups for conversation, take a fleeting glance at notices posted in But- trick, remember a war stamp to be bought, run on the million little errands that daily living requires.

With the first 1 days of spring, day students enjoy their lunche Eatins is always a pleasure, but this year it carries its responsibilities as well. War-time emergency has inaugurated a co-operative system of dining room duty, a fascinating dumbwaiter, and a cafeteria style of serv- ing. Day students enjoy Tea House lunches and those brought from home. While most Hottentots cannot be con- sidered social butterflies (and they wouldn ' t want to be), there is always enough social activity to keep them busy. In spite of the growing man shortage, the Dean ' s office did a lively business check- ing dates in and out. Many after-dinner coffees and receptions were enjoyed by faculty and students in Murphey Candler and in the lobby of Rebekah. The gym with its " juke box " was often the scene of skating parties and square dances. Concerts in Atlanta offered keen delight to music lovers. And, of course, there were, as usual, the private excursions to town for dinner and a movie. Miss Scandrett pours at the Mortar Board coffee for new students.
