Q a T 7 ' . aale J oitentot reSeniS . . . OL 1946 Silhouette Published by the STUDENTS OF AGNES SCOTT COLLEGE Decatir, Georgia Peggy Willmox Mafiha Sunkes Editor Business Manager The 1946 Silhouette is in the hands of our Junior Editor, Miss Aggie Hottentot, who has come to us on a visit from her home land to see what fellow Hottentots are like. She ' s a snoopy little miss, and she got into everything immediately. Her dimpled charm, her spontaneous gaiety, and her sparkling and somewhat surprising comments on college life entranced us, and we coaxed her into helping us edit the Sil- houette. But her personality swamped our feeble efforts at being witty, so we gave her full charge and let her manage the whole thing. We ' ve fallen hopelessly in love with her, and we hope that everyone else will take her to their hearts, too. . . . Now, it ' s all yours, Aggie . . . fire away! A Preview Classes Features 65914 oLJedicatl icuuon Because of her singular combination of genuine intellect, sensitive understanding, and vniaflected friendliness, we gratefully dedicate this, the 1946 Silhouette, to MISS LESLIE JANET GAYLORD Miss Leslie Janet Gaylord iuttrick Hall — an atmosphere of scliolarsliip and Gothic majesty. S trollu ' 9 d tn ina CLvounci the camuud . . ipi Tresser Hall — symbol of beauty and the fine arts.

Into them pass hundreds of students, who will study, play, and Ii e for four years in the atmosphere of stimulation which finds its roots in the quiet strength s mbol- ized by these buildings. Rejiiembrance of college days is bound up ine.xtricably with remembrance of Buttrick. Presser. and the library — classes, cokes, labs, quiet study, animated ■ " bull-ses- sions, " re erent chapel programs — days at Agnes ScottI Pines and clouds in striking sluuhnv ])attcrns against the blue of the skij. . . . and beuutlful Sceneru All the charm of southern hospitality lies in the dignified pillars of the colonnade. Beloved Main tower through tlie stark tracery of black hnufihs. Fall, winter, and spring. Agnes Scott is a lovel - campus. Fall makes of it a pageant of color with windswept skies and autumn lea ' es. Winter skies are background for the sti-ong, clean-cut outlines of the buildings. With March comes all the deh- cacv of a southern spring — dogwood, wisteria, azaleas, and the new green of b-ees and grass. One would look far for a college campus more graced with natin-al lovehness! an d F laceA to ptu ife is not all work, especialh- in college, igh re el predominates man ' times, at e Black Cat Stunt, the Junior Joint, and her festive occasions.

JDate parlors are the scene of Iinurs to he long remembered. . . . un d work But then again, there is ample room for work. Because the old proverb, " All work and no play . . . " , applies backwards, too. Buttrick is efjuii ped with roomy, airy class-rooms and, of course, the mail room and book-store! Sound- i:)roof practice rooms make Presser the ideal spot for musical study. Day and night the science labs are well-occupied. And it goes without sa ' - ing that the library is a perfect habitation for umj type of concentration. Term papers, math problems, parallel reading — the library offers refuge to all who study. Lab is the scene of intense, fascinating research. 13 Morning watch adds 77ieaning and in- spiration to each day with its renewal of faith. There is reverence in the atmosphere of the beautifully simple chapel in an J The right to worship as we please is sacrecl, and spiritual growth is one of the Agnes Scott ideals. We find sincere hap- piness here in cjuiet meditation and in 14 reverent chapel services. God becomes real to tis, and our religion becomes the vital force that helps us to live fuller. richer lives of service. Quiet meditation in the Round House brings peace to troubled and weary sttidents. Facithii members hold high the torch of knowledge. From it we kindle simihir torches and hear them flaming into after- college life. Tm very proud to present . . . f r_ The Faculty 16 Kindliness and dignity characterize our beloved president. Dr. McCain. President fames Ross McCain, aside from his duties as chief executive, has a genuine interest in all campus affairs.

Dr. McCain holds many important positions in both literary and religious fields. He is a sena- tor of the United Chapters of Phi Beta Kappa, a member of the General Education Board of New York, and a very active member of the Decatur Presbyterian Church. All Agnes Scott stu- dents admire him for his dignity, friendliness, and poise. President McCain is tiaih ' the embodi- ment of the Asnes Scott ideal. 17 The Administration Mr. S. G. Stukes is . one of the busiest, as well as one of the most popular, people on campus. In addition to his duties as Registrar, he holds the positions of Dean of the Faculty and Professor of Psychology. Seniors turn to Mr. Stukes for some solution of the problem of what is to come after graduation; his ad ' ice is excellent, and liis help is invaluable! Mr. I. C. Tart, Business Manager-Treasurer, is never too busy for a smile and a friendly " hello. " He simplifies our money problems and smoothly manages the complex- financial matters of the college. Our Assistant Business Manager-Treasurer, Mr. How- ard MacGregor, and his family have become popular members of our college community. Our well groomed campus is largely a result of his tireless supervision. Her duties both as Recorder and teacher of freslnnan English make Miss Margaret Ridley an important person on campus. Miss Laura Steele is Dr. McCain ' s capable secretary. Since January of this year she has been on leave ot absence, attending two sessions at Columbia University. Mrs. Willis Binford has taken her place for the remainder of the term. Miss Martha Ray Lasseter has much to keep her busy as secretary to Mr. Stukes.

The busitwss of the college runs smoothhj under the supervision of Mr. Tart and Mr. MacGrenor. Miss Ridley and Mi.is Steele — two of the huiest people on campus. Miss Lasseter and Mi. s Finger check over some records. Charm, efficiency, and understanding combine to make Miss Scandrett the perfect dean. Friendly and sympathetic response to students ' problems and an air of calm efficiency ha ' e made the Dean ' s office a popular center of interest. It is the place where students not only sign up for cuts, look up schedules, and sign out for dates, but also go for a friendly chat with one of the gracious persons on duty there. Miss Carrie Scandrett, Dean of Students, is known campus-wide as one who is personally interested in each individual student. She always has ready an encouraging word or a bit of helpful ad ice. Her gracious smile creates a friendly atmosphere wherever she goes. Assistant Dean of Students is Miss Charlotte Hunter.

Himt, now secretar ' to tlie Dean of St idents. is well- known by the student body. A recent graduate of Agnes Scott, Miss Betty Bowman, is also secretary to the Dean of Students. Her first year on campus in this capacity has been higliK ' successful. Miss Hunter ' s sincere and constructive inter- est has made her a favorite with the stu- dents. The Dean Miss Bowman looks up some vital formation in the Dean ' s office. English Remote Beowulf becomes vivid, and the liroblem of term ixipeis becomes simjDler under the guidance of the Eng- iisli faculty. Through its variety of courses and the val- uable ijublic lectures it sponsors, this department has touched the life of every student. Mr. George P. Hayes is Professor of English.

Her extensive knowledge of histor ' makes her classes very informative. Miss Jackson is a member of the American Association of Universitv Women. Miss Smith refers to The Con- stitution for the answer to a goiernmental problem. Mrs. Sims ' friendly personality is accentuated by her gracious smile. History Miss Jackson studies a war map Aliss Alexander bronzes through the latest addition to her Jihranj. " r n Languages Miss Ham braves December ' s cold! The boundaries of the world are disappearing, and nations are seeing the need for closer intercommunica- tions. A study of tlie language and the literature of other nations plays, today, a vital role in the promotion of a better understanding among the world ' s people. The French department is headed by Miss Lucile Alex- ander, who is also a member of the Electives Committee and an honorary member of Mortar Board. Miss Alex- ander ' s sincere admiration for her subject transfers itself to her students. Miss Margaret Phythian, Associate Professor of French, is a graduate of Agnes Scott.

The quiet and dignified atmosphere of the library can be attributed to Miss Edna Ruth Hanley ' s supervision as librarian. She also plans the distinctive exhibits which appear on approp- riate occasions and gi e added interest to the library. Miss IJanley ' s love for flowers in. ;pired her to fill the window sills with the lovely pot plants that every student admires. Willing to aid every student in " catalogue problems " are Miss Hanley ' s able assistants, Mrs. Woodbury, Mi.sses Trarnrnell, Black, Humphries, and Peeler. Their teamwork makes our library the smoothly-running, expertly-organized place that it is.

Dr. Mar- garet V. Burns, completing her second year as college physician, has become an indispensable part of the college community. Tiirough the attention and care she gives each student, she has kept the campus health-wise. This year Dr. Burns had a few cases of just about everything, from mumps to nervous exhaustion. Her unflagging cheer- fulness pulled her patients through all their ailments and estabhshed her reputation as a fine person. .,l,t i " « ' ■ ' " " Dr. B.

Secretary-Treasurer 34 Hopefully, we rehearsed outdoors for Investiture — but on THE day, it rained. Tissy ' Bout-Through went up in smoke as we wailed and groaned. In an awed voice one of the freshmen told me, " Aggie, those are the Seniors! " It seems that they ' ve been here at Agnes Scott for four years, and they ' re leaving in June by some process known as graduation. Out of curiosity I snooped around to find out what had happened to them in those four years. They were a war class from the first, so they missed such things as stockings every night, formal dinners once a week, the Junior Banquet, and Senior Coffees. But they gained things, too. As •freshmen they were the first to be able to double-date (not e en a chaperone?), and as juniors they could go to night movies in Decatur. This year three seniors could go to Atlanta at night. Pretty independent gang, I ' d say! They even started a tradition. Instead of acting like children on Little Girls ' Day, they had a picnic. Then they put on their long, black robes (over blue jeans), marched mournfully to the library, and burned an effigy of their childhood. Heayens, what peculiar customs ci ilized people have! They had a lot of fun, those seniors, and they ' ll have a lot of memories to take home with them. I ' m thoroughly convinced that college is a pretty good place to be!

The seniors show the sojyhs the daisy-picking technique. Pagie, Lou, and Lidu lime led tlie soplis to many a victory. SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS Lou McLaukin President Pagie Violette Vice-President LiDA Walker Secretary-Treasurer The sophomore class is another " go-getthig gang. " I talked to several of them, and their histor) ' reads like a success story. In October they walked away with the Black Cat, a famous animal on campus. Hockey, basket- ball, and swimming events found the sophs right in the midst of things, fall and winter. Investiture for the seniors turned out to be a rainy day, but the sophs helped brighten things up a bit. The traditional daisy chain got them out of bed at daybreak and kept them busy all day before Class Day. (Now, daisy-picking is something that even I can enjoy!) Since the war had left so many people homeless, the sophs and seniors together adopted a war orphan and sent money, letters, gifts, and friend- ship overseas to a small helpless boy. Enterprising creatures, the sophs decided to have a " Pin-up " contest which would establish the supremacy of certain lucky male admirers of the fair student bodv. Good idea, I ' d call it! Oh, they led an interesting life, there ' s no doubt about it! Their fun- loving spirits and smooth efficiency made an indefinable, but happy addi- tion to the Hfe of the whole campus and the college. 79 Abehnathy Adams Alsobrook Andrews Armstbonc- Ballahu Barker Beacham Bellingbath Blair, B.

I helped them in October on the Black Cat Stunt (at least, I yelled with them! ). and in spite of not winning we had a lot of fun. They started to classes and got into the swing of things early in the quarter, showing great promise both in academic and athletic matters. In Novem- ber they elected officers and realK got organized as a class. Then came e .xams . . . The New Year got a good start with a big freshman party which was a huge success. Then interest groups in drama, music, and literatiu ' e began to claim a large share of interest. ( I went to all of them. I couldn ' t bear to lea e one out!) Lo and behold, they walked away with all sorts of athletic prizes, including first place in the big swimming meet! You can easily see that this class was a " humdinger, " and I — ahem! — am proud to be classified as Aggie Hottentot, Freshman.

As Junior Editor of the Silhouette, I can speak from experience when I sa ' that the staff goes on the run all year! Tlie photographer and I carried flash bulbs around all fall, taking pictures of everything! Then the staff got together, and we decided where to put the pictures after we got them! I was sort of a secret, so they made me hide until the Silhouette came out! But by golly, I managed to get my picture on nearly every page, and I ' m certainly doing all the talking.

" Snooping should be right in your hne, " they told me as they made me silent partner on the gossip column of the Agnes Scott News. From there on, my life revolved madly around keyholes, typewriters, and Tuesday dead- lines. My first snooping included discovering that the theme of the paper this year was NEWS and that they made several big campus scoops. After people asked me pointedly, " Is your mind campused? " I realized that the News was also having a campaign to challenge thought among the students. This year marked the thirtieth anniversary for the paper, and the photostat of the first paper in the birthday issue made me realize what a progressive newsheet it really is! just a (latherinn of ad gatherers. . . .

Radfori:) Secretary Laura Winchester Treasurer My first real acquaintance with democracy was Student Govern- ment. The girls enforce their own rules here, and it really works. They told me, " Student Government is You. " I sauntered around to find out what they meant. Th talks during Student Government Week informed me that every girl is a part of the honor system and the governing body. 1 appro ' e of a government that gives parties like " The Fair, " which had everything, including fortune- tellers, hot dogs, and freaks. { People kept mistaking me for a freak, can you imagine?) My Junior Sponsor showed me around and really got me ac- quainted with the ins and outs of collegiate life. The only draw- back was hand-book classes, but I guess everyone has to learn the rules sometime. In December I stowed away in the president ' s suitcase and went up to the Student Government Convention at Furman University. You know how conventions are, everyone talking tlieir heads off about problems, honor systems, and elections! This spring everyone voted to rejoin the National Student Fed- eration of America. " Something like the League of Nations? " I asked, and they told me it was students from colleges all over the country. So you see, because of all this, democracy gets my vote!

To find a beginning for Christian Association ' s many activities isn ' t easy. 1 guess it all started with ns, the bewildered Fresliman. C.A. ' s guarding eye and helping hand saw that the " filling station " supper °for the campus newcomers fulfilled its purpose, and then turned to the Interior Decoration Clinic which resulted in the rejuvenation of Inman. On the more serious side, we seekers of knowledge were satisfied by the interest groups in music, literature and dramatics. Then for everybod ' C.A. had morning watch, Tuesday chapel periods, and even turned publisher by compihng a campus devo- tional booklet, plus a booklet containing notes from the significant campus speeches during the year. The highlight of the year was the Campus Mission week with four visiting speakers. With organizations such as this on our campus, I say with C.A., " Cuard what has been eutnisled to you.

" Wonder if it could be a special brick-laying committee or something? " But someone told me that it is the honoran. ' organization for outstanding senior lead- ers. The members are chosen for scholarship ( that lets me out!), leadership), and scr ice. I snooped around and found a reading room in Rebekah that thev sponsor, . ' fter looking at pictures for a while, I fol- lowed a gang of seniors and engaged girls to Mortar Board ' s nianiage class. But the ' wouldn ' t let me in, cause I didn ' t ha e a ring. (The onh ' ring I ever had was the one I used to wear in my nose! ) They did invite me to one of their wonderful parties for underclassmen, though. On Sunday night I loved to go to the open house in Muri hj ' Candler. Social Standards Committee, created by Mortar Board, takes charge of it, and the fun-and-food are wonderful! On top of all this. Mortar Board supports the English lectures, . rt .Appreciation half-hours, and Book Week. Now I see why the members are top-notch people!

Take it from one who knows - war is no fun. And now I ' m all out for a peace that will mend the world for good and all. The best way we Hottentots could express such sentiments was thiough the War Council - or really the Rehabihtation (Heavens! what a word) Council. That ' s the campus organization that gives us the chance to give food and clothing to UNRRA, nickels and dimes to the Red Cross, the United War Fund, and the World Student Fund - all the worthy causes in need of a little help from us. They made me General in charge of collecting nickels and dimes — just call me General Sohcitor! And money isn ' t all that we can give - sometimes a little time can be e en more worthwhile. At least that ' s what the boys at Lawson Hospital tell us. And it wasn ' t only the boys who had fun at their dances. We Hottentots loved those Thursday night visits! War Council, vou see, has its serious and its lighter sides, and they both gi ' e us an opportunity to be useful citizens of our world.

But who minds listening when such famous people as Marquis Childs and Emile Calliet and the Hottentots ' " own poet, " Robert Frost, are doing the talking? That ' s what Lecture Association does for us — gives us a chance to hear, right here on our owti campus, the people we read about but never dream of seeing. Lecture Associa- tion is something special to the Agnes Scott campus. It strives to satisfy our intellectual curiosity by exposing us to the " men of the times, " and it has been my favorite way of learning just who ' s who and what ' s what in this far-away land.

My jungle back- ground left me a little dubious about all these big words and ideas. But I soon learned, first hand, about the good times these Eta Sigma Phi scholars could have. Not only the campus benefited bv their enthusiasm, but also the local high schools. (They ga e the top students prizes.) Confidentially. I ' m e cn thinking of going " back to the Creeks " myself.

Memories of the tribal war-paint flashed across my excited mind when the production members of Blackfriars prepared me for my stage debut. Dramatics come eas ' to people like me; so they considered me a " natural " for tlie Hottentot ' s dramatic club. They e en let me play Hamlet — in the privacy of a meeting! Those meetings — weren ' t the ' fun? Business was just a minor detail when you liad parties and one-act skits to look forward to. Then, of course, there were tlie major productions. We had a wonderful time among ourselves producing " Pride and Prejudice " and " Hotel Universe; " I was back stage giving cues, working lights, and swinging on the curtain ropes. Ah, those proverbial liglits of Broadway are really bringing out the native in me.

I have suspected that it was the song in my heart that carried me through the Christmas Carol program and the production of Gilbert and Sullivan ' s " The Pirates of Penzance. " But maybe the Georgia Tech warriors who joined us for both events could be con- sidered a better source of inspiration. One way or the other, there was always music in the air wherever Glee Club members nia - ha e wandered. In chapel we were the choir, at Lawson Hospital and the Army Camps at least part of us were the Hotten- tots ' Special Chorus, and at the Georgia Tecli Concert we were just the Glee Club.

Wandering through Buttrick unconcernedly one afternoon, I happened upon an amazing scene. Huge splotches of bright colors and paints and brushes sur- rounded me. To my surprise I was told that this was the art lab. As for all the people there — they were members of the Fine Arts League. My qualifications to join then meetings, so the ' told me, need only be an interest in an ' thing from drawing and painting to sculpturing and architecture, and they would see to it that my knowledge of such was furthered. Soimded good to me then — and better after hearing lecturers like Philip R. Noble, Emil Holzhauer and Dr. Richard Aldrich.

For a busy Hottentot it was always a welcome treat. And anodier thing I liked about this String Ensemble — there was no such thing among them as go ernment and taxes — those two wony-bii ds of life in these United States. Nope, no officers or dues among these new-found friends. That ' s music to these ears. Pi Ali h(i Phi officers make arrangements for visiting debate teams. . . .

I was a bit bewildered at Pi Alpha Phi meetings where the debaters said e er thing just right. Of course Free Trade, the main topic of dis- cussion, is of special interest to me, who could easily be considered an import. Although Free Trade took the floor at all the big tournaments, like Pi Alpha Phi ' s own All Southern Tourna- ment right here, there were lots of smaller de- bates among the club members at the meetings. The special debate teams even went to the Grand-Eastern Tournament in Charlotte. Al- though I couldn ' t handle such fancy stuff, my education wouldn ' t be complete without Pi Alpha Phi.

This first thrilling game set the fast pace that was maintained throiitrhout the entire season. F ollowing the example set last year, outside referees officiated at each game. They were secured through funds raised at the Athletic Associa- tion bridge narty. The four class teams were ratlier evenly matched; so each game was a thriller to the spectators. Each class showed exceptionally high spirit, and large crowds cheered the teams. After a close race, the freshmen and juniors tied for first place. The climax of the season came with the varsity- sub-varsit ' game. The varsity had to keep on its toes to stay ahead of the fighting sub-varsity. Speaking of toes, there was a shoe contest between the hah ' es of this game, and Nellie Scott became the proud possessor of a brand new pair of saddle shoes. Some of the most exciting games of the year were played b ' tlie class B teams. With so much interest aroused by increased i articipation in games. next year ' s games should be tops in the sport light. " Ball { C f Some of the freshmen team are Bunny Brannan.

Margaret Scott is a skillful suimmer and a sood manager. " I ' m so warm. " I said and sighed. " Let ' s stop b ' the jwol and talk to Scotty about the swimming club. " During the fall quarter Swimming Club together with other outstanding swimmers worked on formations to be used in the annual pageant which was presented on November 27 and 28. The theme of the pageant was Christmas, and the swimmers represented Santa Claus, his elves and Christmas toys. The costumes carried out the theme, and the music was fa ' orite uletide songs. The final formation was swum with candles. Winter quarter tryouts were held for new members. On the basis of unusually good form, speed and endurance, and a knowledge of life saving and artificial respiration. Bunny Bran- nan, Betty Blackmon, Binky Stubbs, Jean Fraser, Ann Hayes, Jane Barker, and Ruth Richardson were accepted. On Februars ' 7 tlie first inter-class swimming meet was held. The ex ' ents included form swimming, speed swimming, free- style daslies and relays, and diving. Miss ' ogell from the Uni ersit ' of Georgia and Mr. Ed Shea from Emory came over to judge with Mrs. Lapp. The sophomores placed first and the freshmen were second. The class managers who were respon- sible for the success of the meet were Bunny Brannan, freshman; Ann Sproesser, sophomore; Cooky Miller and Janet Liddell, junior; and Bettye Lee Phelps, senior. This was the (inly meet which counted for points towards the athletic cup which is awarded to the class winning the most athletic points during the year. During the spring quarter Swimming Club sponsored an exhibition of swimming and diving for the annual Hi ;h School day. Also during the final quarter, junior-senior and soi homore- freshmen teams competed in a swimming meet for fun. The pool, always popular witli students seeking to reheve tensions and to relax after classes and labs, was in constant use this year, and many developed new strokes and smoothed out the rough edges on the old ones. Swimming Club 14.3 Snapped on the tennis court is Scotty Jolmsun, tennis manager. " Love-15— what can that mean? Lo ' e fifteen! That ' s entirely too many where I come from. Let me see. These must he the tennis courts they told Tiie about. Yes, that ' s it — courts, love. Here conies one of the members now. so ma be I can learn something about this wonderful club. " " Yes, Aggie, we are members of tlie tennis club. W ' e play tennis here on the courts in the fall until cold weather comes. This fall we started a doubles tourna- ment, but rainy da ' s prevented us finishing it. We did help a lot of new students to de ' elop form, footwork, and to learn and understand the rules of the game. This spring we held trjouts for girls who wished to become members. You see, our members are selected for enthusiasm and interest, playing abihty, and willingness to cooperate in helping others. Look over on the far court. The girl in white is lielping the freshman brush up on her backhand and her serve. It ' s lots of fun to help others, but the greatest thrill comes in pla ing an e ' enly matched game. The girls on this court are playing the semi-fi nals in the singles tournament. They do not ha e to be members of the tennis club to enter the tournament. In fact, we try to get as many people to enter as possible, because the more the merrier. Everyone is interested in the finals match; so there should be a big crowd of spectators here. " " Well, I ' m really interested. I ' ll come and lead the cheers. I can hear the crowd yelling ' Love-15. " What fun! " " Aggie, you ' ve caught the spirit, if not the sense, of the tennis club. " Tennis Meniliers of the tennis eliih are, left to right: Jaekie Steicart, Joan Crangle, Seotty Jolinsini, Anne Register, and Gloria Gaines. 144 Joan Crangle demomtrates serving technique. 1 Joan Crangle waits expectantly while Gloria Gaines returns a short volly.

" They are members of the Outing Club starting out on an overnight hike. Just wait until ou see tliem tomorrow! Tired but happy after a long hike, supper around the canipfire, long talk and Uttle sleep, they ' ll return. To become a member you must pass a test on fundamental nature lore and first aid and show real enthusiasm for long hikes and outdoor cooking. " Riding " Whoa, halt, stop - help! Oh, Mrs. Lapp! How can I get back on? Oh, what they told me about riding! They said it was one of the most popular fall and spring activities. Beginners learn the thrill of good riding in the training ring while ad anced riders take to the trails for long jaunts. The highhghts of the season come in the horse shows in which the form and skill perfected through practice is demonstrated to the crowds of spec- tators. Riders rejoice when they hear ' The horses are here! ' Well, I ' d be glad if this horse were here under me! There he goes — oh, Mrs. Lapp! " Members of the Outing Club are, first row, left to right: Bettije Lee Phelps, president; Margie Bond, Lorenna Ross, Mary Catherine Vinsant. . . .

Ann Seitzingcr. . . . Last row, left to right: Harriet Frierson, Sarah Walker, Sally Sue Stephenson, Herty McAl- lister. Harriet Gregory and Gene Goode enjoy working out the horses at the r iding ring. Archery " Whiz! Bang! ' Bull ' s-eye. ' Great Agnes Scott! Are the ' practicing to kill each other? Just what are they doing? The ' must be members of the Archery Club that during the season 194.5-46 has tried to increase the interest in archer ' among the student body. Among its activities has been the organization of an archer. ' team for members of die club who attain an exceptional skill. These mem- bers of the club have continued practice during spring quarter to impro e their skill further so that tliey might place high in the annual Telegraphic Tournament for collegiate groups. " yirnibcrs of the archery class aim for the target. ( Volleyball " That nets too high. My, I get more confused by the hour. Hey, miss, what gives out here? ( That ' s " jive " for what is happening? ) What funny basketball — no basket. " " That ' s not basketball or tennis, Aggie, that ' s the queen of spring competitive sports. Volley Ball. Class teams battle their way through the spn ' n . Volley ball, a coniparati el ' new sport on campus, is gradually tak- ing its place with hockey and basketball. In the long spring afternoons, girls gather at the nets on the hockey field to try their hand at a game which requires real skill. If it rains, which it does, practices are held indoors, but the fun and e.xcitement of a fast volley ball game is tlie same indoors and out. " Bowling " Why don ' t you stay in the gym today? What sport can you play in Decatur that you can ' t play right here? Gosh, they don ' t even listen to me. There go about twelve of ' em — off to Decatur. Those girls belong to the bowling club, the " baby " athletic organization on campus. It was just started this year as a trial organiza- tion and if successful, it will become a full-fledged mem- ber of Athletic Association with a member on A. A. Board. The purpose of the club is to promote more interest and skill in bowling. Members are supposed to bowl at least once a week to develop skill so that later some may enter the National Bowling Tournament. " Badminton Club " Why, this is a lot like indoor tennis — what are they playing? " " These are the members of the Badminton Club, Aggie. Badminton Club this year has tried to in- terest die campus in the game of badminton as recreation for fun and fitness, since it is suitable for many occasions in college and throughout later life. The club began its meetings in the fall and played once a week during winter quarter. In addition to the annual doubles tournament, tiie club sponsored a singles tournament, won by Mac Craig, and Carolyn Gilchrist defended their title for the doubles championship. The campus joined Badminton Club at open house in the gym twice during the year when exhibition games were played by club members. Miss Ames, the instructor, won in a mixed doubles tourney at the Atlanta Athletic Club. " It takes a steady eye to howl over ten pins, and Bowling Club gives good practiee. . . .

Behind them are, left to right: Ellen Rosenblatt, Dootsie Gardner, Anne Murrell, Peggy Wilhnon. The Dance Group " Come down to the gym any Thursday night to watch us practice, Aggie, " suggested Miss Eugenie Dozier, leader of the dance group. " But I don ' t Uke Ballet, " I wailed. " The more reason you should go, Aggie! The dance group, composed of students and alumnae are trying to develop campus interest in the dance, and to make dancing an integral part of the campus. During the fall, they studied classic ballet. During the winter, they practiced the dance recital which was given as a climax of the year ' s work. Through dieir efforts, modem, classic, and folk dancing has been presented to the campus in a truly delightful and artistic manner. " Grace in dancing comes onhj through hard practice. M. J. Gower, D. Gard- ner, D. Bennett, V. Dickson, A. Mur- rell, and P. Willmon work hard. A polished evening of dance tea. highlight of the group ' s activiti 148 Huppy owners of the Agnes Scott Pin and Guard are Scottij Johnson, Salhj Sue Stephenson, Sarah Walker, Bettije Lee Phelps, and Ann Hough. Wearers of the Pin and Guard " Oh, " I screamed, " those adorable pins — A. S. — that must stand for Agnes Scott. Why do so many girls here at the gym wear them? " " Well, Aggie, " Sarah replied, " Winter and spring quarter each year, A. S. pins and guards are awarded to the girls who have accumulated the required number of points in athletics. The number of points that even a pin requires, is 1600, and a guard may be obtained with an additional 1200 points. These points must be won in more than one sport; sportsmanship and enthusiasm are also considered. The girls who have been out- standing in " athletic feats " and have won these honors are: Betty Andrews — Pin won in spring of ' 4.5. Class of 47. Tennis — winner of doubles tournament two years.

Yes, we arrived, a bit bewildered and a little in awe of the girls who screamed and yelled and hugged and kissed each other in a performance that couldn ' t even be equalled by any of nnj friends or relatives! Maybe we of the original Hottentot clan are not nearly as heathen as legend makes us out to be. Of course that three day siege of waiting in lines for anything and eveiything you wanted was a Httle discouraging, but once we were settled we really buzzed along. Miss Scandrett took me under her wing and sent me off on a rollicking start. 0 ' er in Inman we newcomers soon fell into the swing of college life, and the old girls backed us up all the way. Ah, college da ' s — there is nothing like them, I am con -inced. Even our introduction to real " book-learning " was a thrill to one of my background. Whee, wait till I write home about this — our drum-to-drum hook-up will really beat it out to all parts of our jungle!

Everything from the hockey games to the Black Cat Stunt kept lis running. There is no end to the acti it ' around here — leaves me rather speechless. No, I guess that ' s impossible. But, anyway, take this game called hockey, with sticks, balls, and screaming gii ' ls every- where on that huge field — how I wish the folks back home could see it! Our tribal wars are calm in comparison. And then the Black Cat Stunt — that was the highlight of the month. The Freshmen and Sophomores really battled it out. For weeks everyone whispered class secrets and for weeks everyone painted, rehearsed, collected properties, and did all tlie other jobs required for this " stunt of all stunts. " The big night came and the Sophomores won — but not without competition. We Freshmen are still a little awed by this life, I have to admit, although we do om- best to give the impression of old-timers. " 167 -Tissy Jj n r [ovembi my calendar was jam-packed full of things to do. Ve didn ' t stop long enough to catch a breath; it was just one thing after another. With me giving tlie cues from backstage, Blackfriars presented " Pride and Prejudice " — a superb performance. The equestriennes displayed their talents at the first Agnes Scott horseshow in many a year. Cotillion Club had tlieir wonderful party over at the Tea House — with men. Pi Alpha Phi played hostess to the All Southern Debate Tournament, another new annual event on our campus. It was the Seniors ' month really. " Tissy ' Bout Through " for them, and they burned the effigy the night before Investiture to prove it. What a gruesome sight that was! Then the rains came for Investiture, but no spirits were dampened. The Seniors were the happy gals. And so another month was marked off the little C. A. calendar and we were off to new adventures " Rain or shine. Investiture is an impressicc ceremony. 168 A ii.s Leybuni is a gracious example of the ideaU of a liberal arts college.

There were lots of these Southern gals who were just as thrilled as I was. And with snow- on the ground the Swimming Club presented its Christmas Pageant. What a wonderful sight that was! I bet there aren ' t man ' people ho have seen Santa Claus in a bathing suit. Brrr! Of course the Christmas Holidays were the ' dream of the month, ' but before we dared shut our eyes there were several obstacles to overcome — such as exams! For us Freshman these were the first, and I ' ll have to admit that my knees tiu-ned to water when Miss Jackson asked us to bace the history- of the church. But we managed to survive the week, and then it was only a matter of how fast the taxi could carry us to tlie station before we weie boarding the train for the sentimental joiuney home. Of course my " Tiome ' was with friends this time, but it was a " Merrv Christmas for all and for all a iiood night. ' " 171 anuan ¥ we were tempted to fall into the depths of mid-winter despondency, which seemed inevitable after such a won- derful three weeks Christmas vacation. But we Freshman were kept too bus ' even to think about home. This was really our month. First there were the parties sponsored by Mortar Board and given by our " big sisters, ' the Juniors. There were barn dances, hayrides, and picnics — all with men. Who coidd ask for anything more? Then the Junior Class gave a tea for us over in Murphe} ' Candler, and we got all dressed up in our parb, ' clothes to enjoy this e.xtra hospitality. I was ' specially busy, ' cause the Silhouette snap-shot contest gave me a chance to snoop into everyone ' s collection and get some good blackmail material! You can see that it was a busy time, not considering the fact that books and papers were staring us in the face. But then, that ' s all a part of college life, and we love it.

Lecture Association brought both Dr. Lowry and ' our own ' Robert Frost to talk to us. On Founder ' s Day Agnes Scott broke into the news with a radio program. This was the month for Valentines too, and I wish everyone could have seen the dietitian ' s handiwork in the dining room for our Valentine ' s Dav dinner. It was really a work of art. Of course the Junior Joint was the big event of the month. We all took a journey Through the Looking Glass ' and found Alice in Wonderland in the gym. This was another time for the Freshmen to shine, too — our King and Queen won. Then came the swimming meet, the only one of the year; so everybody worked hard to win. It was the Sophomores who came out on top! Now everyone has settled down for the next event on the calendar — another set of exams. And so it goes. ' 1 pensively heautiful moment in " Les Si lphijdes. " n ivlcii ' cn . . . we had a busy time — like e ' ei y other month only more so. When exams and vacations come all at once, it ' s inevitable that the Hottentots will be in a dither, and we were! Fii-st, we watched the Dance Group trip the light fantastic on the stage of Presser in their interpretation of Chopin ' s ' Les Sylphydes ' and Liszt ' s ' Hungarian Rhapsody. ' Then we left the aesthetic to return to the reality of examinations. But we quickly con- cjuered diem and dashed for the quickest mode of transportation to cany us home for six unforgettable davs of vacation. Of course all good things must come to an end, and we were soon back behind the books again, wifh only sentimental memories of home. But before March roared out, the Glee Club did itself proud in Gilbert and Sullivan ' s ' The Pirates of Penzance. ' Collaborating with the Georgia Tech boys, they performed lioth here and at Tech. And so another month was but a memoiy with the thoughts of spring ahead. " 176 Almoii professional ikill characterized the ev,ening of dance.

But there were such things as Blackfriars ' produc- tion of ' Hotel Universe ' to take our minds off our troubles. And the big moment for the Juniors, the first Junior Banquet in three years, came off in top style -with dancing in Vlurphey Candler fthe first on the Agnes Scott campus) after filet mignon. What a thrill that was! Tfjc Enghsh department brought the inimitable John Mason Brown to inform us of the latest in literature and drama. All in all we enjoyed those four weeks, but spring or winter there is one thing that continues to puzzle me about Georgia: Spring is sprung, The grass is riz, I wonder where the sunshine is. But then I comfort myself with the thought: April showers Bring May flowers. " Beautiful girls, handsome hoys, and fun GALORE at the Junior Banquet. 179 " TIrese moon people MUST get ORGANIZED!

We had not only the Queen and her lovely maids, but also eveiy god and goddess on Olympus throned in glory. For the Seniorpohtan Opera we went clear up to the moon. Oh, we really got around in May, believe me! Reinhold Neibuhr, philosopher and lecturer extiaordinary , returned to the campus for another provocati ' e address. A lucky few were tapped and initiated into that most mvsterious of all organizations - Phi Beta Kappa. But the thing that reaUy impressed me was incessant exam-tak- ing! Sophs and seniors spent two solid days gnawing pencils and tearing hair o ' er experimental graduate record exams. Then the seniors plunged into those jinal finals. Underclassmen followed suit a week later, and then — summer! June, graduation, weddings, house-parties, and the happy memories of m - first year at Agnes Scott. " 180 Mighty Iliidf.
