The French Department is an important one at Agnes Scott. Miss Phythian, its head, is a graduate of Agnes Scott College and is a Docteur d e l ' Universite de Grenoble, France. Because of her continuing interest in our College and affection for Miss Phythian, Miss Priscilla Lobeck, formerly a member of the Art Department at Agnes Scott, made the sketches of French scenes for this volume during her travels in France in the summer of 19 50. We are deeply grateful to Miss Lobeck for these charm- ing and distinctive contributions to the 1951 Silhouette. Mr 0K THE FACULTY 13 The Faculty plays at their annual Bacon Bat and graciously receives the college community at the Opening Reception Dr. McCain ' s Birthday Party More than six hundred guests — Agnes Scott Trus- tees, alumnae, faculty, students, family, and friends — attended a luncheon at the College on April 9th, honoring Dr. McCain on his 70th birthday. Warm tributes were paid him and in appreciation of his great services to the College during the twenty-eight years of his Presidency it was announced that the Library is henceforth to be known as the McCain Library and that more than S 14,000.00 has been given toward the McCain Endowment Fund for the Library. A volume containing hundreds of letters from alum- nae, faculty, and students, in appreciation and affec- tion for Dr. McCain was presented to him, the stu- dents sang an original song in which the principal achievements of his administration were cited, and last but not least, he was given a handsome new Buick car. JAMES ROSS McCAIN President, Agnes Scott College 1923-1951 Educator Churchman Builde Friend Respected as an Educator throughout the country and holding important positions in its educational associations; recognized as a leader in the Southern Presbyterian Church and member of several of its principal committees; builder of a greater Agnes Scott both in the realm of physical equipment and in the intangible values of the liberal arts ideal; possessed of a rare spirit of friendliness and a genuine and personal interest in all members of the college community — for these and other qualities of mind, spirit, and character so unselfishly dedicated to Agnes Scott College, we say " Thank you " and " Godspeed " to Dr. McCain as he lays aside his responsibilities as President. WALLACE McPHERSON ALSTON Vice-President The profound religious faith, fine intellect, and vibrant personality of Dr. Wallace McPherson Alston have made a deep impression on the college community during the three years that he has been vice-president of Agnes Scott. The destiny of our college will continue to be in the hands of a strong and devoted leader when Dr. Alston assumes the presidency of Agnes Scott on July 1st. SAMUEL GUERRY STUKES Dean of the Faculty and Registrar Mr. Stukes is an ever present help to Agnes Scott students both in academic and personal problems, always giving us wise counsel and a brighter view of life. With his keen understanding, his sense of humor, and his sincere interest in each individual, Mr. Stukes has become the friend and counsellor of all. CARRIE SCANDRETT Dean of Students Miss Carrie Scandrett, beloved Dean of Students, is largely responsible for making Agnes Scott a real " home away from home. " Her understanding nature and her sincere interest in all our joys as well as problems makes her our friend; her graciousness and warm friendliness win for her a firm place in the hearts of all Agnes Scott students. English The English Department, through its wide range of courses, provides for students a rich background for a liberal education during college days and for a rewarding intellectual life beyond the campus experience. Whether studying one of the basic courses or adventuring into such advanced courses as " Chaucer " , ' Modern Drama " , or " Shakespeare " , students find rich rewards in working in this popular department. George P. Hayes Professor Ellen Douglass Leyburn Associate Professor Emma May Laney Associate Professor Annie May Christie Assistant Professor Janef Newman Preston Assistant Professor Margret Guthrie Trotter Assistant Professor Amelia Jo Wier Instructor History The history department believes that the solution of present- day problems may be found by a precise examination of recent facts coupled with a study of the record of past experiences. Its variety of courses ranges from a study of current problems as recorded in the New York Times to the history of the an- cient Greek and Roman civilizations. By work in this depart- ment, the Agnes Scott student is instilled with a special interest in today ' s world problems and is enabled to approach these difficulties and uncertainties with a thorough knowledge of past experiences. Walter Brownlow Posey Professor Florence E. Smith Associate Professor Elizabeth Fuller Jackson Associate Professor Catherine Strateman Sims Associate Professor Languages Agnes Scott ' s language department offers an opportunity to acquire that poise and ease in a foreign languag e that is so nec- essary for a well-rounded education. The members of these departments recognize the necessity of being familiar with the thought and customs of countries other than our own, if we would live wisely and well in a world which by virtue of scientific progress is ever decreasing in size. The classical languages introduce the student to the cultures of past generations, while modern languages, such as German, French, and Spanish, have their practical application in many jobs and recreations today. The work in this department is made even more interesting by language clubs, record con- ferences, and language tables in the dining hall. M. Kathrvn Glick Professor of Classical Languages and Literati res Muriel Harn Professor of German and Spanish MARGARET TAYLOR PHYTHIAN Professor of French Elizabeth Gould Zenn Assistant Professor of Classical Languages and Literatures Elizabeth McDaniel Barineau Assistant Professor of French Melissa Annis Cilley Assistant Professor of Spanish FLORENE J.

Robinson Professor of Mathematics Mary Stuart MacDougall Professor of Biology William Joe Frierson Professor of Chemistry William A. Calder Professor of Physics and Astronomy and Science The best evidence of Agnes Scott ' s interest in the progress of present- day living is the science and mathe- matics departments. These depart- ments offer excellent instruction in biology, physics, chemistry, astro- nomy, and mathematics. In these courses one finds emphasis on exact- ness of knowledge, and the labora- tory experiments are both interest- ing and informative. The up-to-date instruction avail- able in these fields will be tremen- dously enlarged next year by the modern facilities of a new science hall. During this past year the new Bradley Observatory, containing the largest reflecting telescope in the Southeast, has intensified the interest in Astronomy both on the campus and in the surrounding community.

These courses are well suited for both the professionally interested art student or the casual admirer of Art. The part played by this department is not limited to the courses offered. AH the campus community may enjoy the interesting lectures and exhibits sponsored by the art department. Henry Chandlee Forman Professor Florence S. Bishop Instructor Music Michael McDowell Professor The music department reaches all Agnes Scott students by its wide-spread activities. At chapel programs the school community enjoys music by the various choirs and a stu- dent or faculty organist. Throughout the year special musical programs, enjoyed by the whole Atlanta area, are presented by the members of this department and their guests. Piano, organ, voice, and violin lessons are offered and may be taken either for college credit or as extra-curricular activities. Roxie Hagopian Associate Professor of Music Raymond J. Martin Associate Professor of Music Isabel Mawha Bryan Part-time Instructor in Piano Lillian R. Gilbreath Part-time Instructor in Piano Irene L. Harris Part-time Instructor in Piano Edwin C. White Part-time Instructor i Music Bibl It is fitting that a Christian college such as Agnes Scott should have a fine Bible department. The uniqueness of our Bible department is the balance obtained in possessing the Bible both spiritually and intellectually. " Church History, " " American Religious Thought, " and " The Teachings of Jesus " show a bit of the variety offered in this department. Samuel A. Cartledge Visiting Professor Felix Bayard Gear Visiting Professor Paul Leslie Garber Professor Mary Lily Boney Instructor Speech Speech students at Agnes Scott learn the fundamentals of speech as well as the art of dramatics and play production. They apply what they have learned, bringing enjoyment to the entire campus community, through short stories, readings in chapel, and productions of Blackfriars, the dramatic club sponsored by the speech department. Neva Jackson Webb Instructor in Speech Frances K. Gooch Associate Professor of English On Leave: ROBERTA WINTER, Assistant Professor Philosophy-Education and Psychology The departments of philosophy, education, and psychology, deal primarily with the understanding and improvement of human society. Philosophy holds a special interest for students in this age when basic concepts of knowledge and ethics are being challenged. The psychology department helps us to understand the behavior patterns of both in- dividuals and groups. The education department offers a substantial background in the development of education and provides a practical teacher training program. SAMUEL GUERRY STUKES Professor of Psychology and Educati Emily S Dexter Katherine T. Omwake John I. Goodlad Associate Professor of Associate Professor of Visiting Associate Professor Philosophy and Education Psychology of Education Samuel P. Wiggins Assistant Professor of Education Sociology and Economics Sociology and economics do a great deal to strengthen a student ' s interest in her community and in the financial and business functions of that community. Through the economics department students can study and understand more thoroughly the perplexing problems of labor, management, and finance. The sociology courses are highlighted by guest speakers from Atlanta and by trips to points involving sociological problems in Atlanta. Mildred Rutherford Mell Professor of Economics and Sociology Anna Greene Smith Associate Professor of ..Economics and Sociology Physical Education Striving for the third ideal of Agnes Scott, the physical education department stresses the well-being of students through medical super- vision, exercise, and sports. Our rich program of athletics provides instruction in badminton, tennis, archery, swimming and dancing. Team-work and class spirit are encouraged by interclass competition in hockey, basketball, and baseball. Chester W. Morse College Physician and Professor of Physical Education LLEWELLYN WlLBURN HARRIETTE HAYNES LAPP Associate Professor Assistant Professor Eugenie Louise Dozier Instructor Helena Williams Instructor 29 Administrative Offices What a wide variety of activities originate in these offices! Managing registration, keeping records, handling promotion and publicity, running the book store — all these and many more duties are performed in an able and efficient manner by the fine admin istra- tive staff of Agnes Scott.

In spite of the flurry of signing out, ordering taxis, sending telegrams, and carrying on many other activities, the staff always has a cheery welcome for everyone — students, faculty, family, and friends. The center of all social life on our campus, the Dean of Students ' office is always a busy place. It is also the quiet spot where students are sure of finding sympathetic understanding, encouragement, and friendly advice. Elizabeth Bowman Shaw Assistant to the Dean of Students Isabella Wilson Lewis Assistant Dean of Students Anita Albright istant Dean of Students Nellie Scott Assistant to the Dean of Students Edna Hanley Byers Librarian Library Staff Both the interior and the exterior of the Library make this building one of the most outstanding on campus. Its quiet, pleasant atmosphere is ideal for the preparation for classes and the research work that is done here. There are always intriguing displays, artistically arranged, to brighten a hard day, and, for anyone who has a moment to spare for relaxation, there are novels to be read and magazines to thumb through. The Library staff performs a great service on our campus by running the library and by being so willing to help those that request their aid. Irene H.

Stu- dents are encouraged by AURORA to attempt expression of their ideas and to present for publication poetry, essays, short stories, book reviews, and literary criticisms. AURORA thus endeavors to stimulate further creative writing on the campus. Illustrations for short stories, poems and the cover provide an opportunity for art students to contribute their creative expressions. The gifted Editorial Staff . . .

A popu- lar project of Student Government is the Class Spirit cup, which plays an important part in creating enthusiasm among the students for their own Class. This year Lower House took on many additional duties, including a share of the important judicial branch.

The " Christian Association has had as its theme for the year, " I Would Thou Wert either Hot or Cold " . A sincere effort has been made in all C.A. activities to stress the meaning of this topic. Chapel and Vesper programs have been varied, with special speakers, good music programs, meditations and student talks. The Council has increased its off-campus activities by adding the Methodist Orphans ' Home to its list, which in- cludes Negro Mission, Scottish Rite Hospital, Y.W.C.A. Industrial Girls ' Club, Girl Scouts, and the Central Presby- terian Day Camp. The Inter-faith Council has had an active year. It has been in charge of the bus taking Agnes Scott girls to church on Sunday and also has planned most successfully a campus Day of Prayer. C.A. Cabinet Members operated a baggage clinic for the Freshmen on their first day at college. The newcomers to our campus were welcomed at a C.A. " Star " party. Dr. George D. Heaton, pastor of the Myers Park Baptist Church of Charlotte, N. C, led the discussions and talks of Religious Emphasis Week, all of which gave support to he Christian Association theme for this year. MORTAR BOARD One of the most influential and important organizations on the Agnes Scott campus is Mortar Board, national honor society for college women. Its three ideals of leadership, service, and scholarship are felt in many phases of college life. Each Spring Juniors who possess these qualities to an outstanding degree are elected to membership in Mortar Board. The Chapter at Agnes Scott received its charter in 1931, its parent organization being HOASC — Honorary Order of Agnes Scott College — founded in 1916. The Chapter has as its aim: " to provide for co-operation between senior honor societies for women, to promote col- lege loyalty, to advance the spirit of service and fellowship among university women, to maintain a high standard of scholarship, to recognize and encourage leadership, and to stimulate and develop a finer type of college woman. " In addition to its traditional activities at Agnes Scott, during the past year Mortar Board co-operated with the Alumnae Association in the development of Career Con- ferences, organized Marriage Classes, and sponsored the showing of popular movies on the campus for the college community and friends.

" Each Spring the Chapter elects to membership those members of the Senior Class who possess the quali- fications of high scholarship, liberal culture, and good character. The Beta of Georgia Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa was established at Agnes Scott College on March 23, 1926, and was the ninth college for women to receive this high honor.

The Alpha Delta chapter at Agnes Scott is one of the forty-four currently active chapters in the United States. The fraternity has the four-fold purpose: " to keep in touch with classical activities through the nation; to interest the student body in the study of the classics; to foster interest among its own members; and to promote in the nearby high schools an enthusiasm for classical study. " Each year a special topic is selected by the chapter for study and discussion at its meetings. This year the chapter chose Plutarch ' s Lives as the basis of study for their Thursday afternoon meetings. The members participate in the national contests sponsored by Eta Sigma Phi and Alpha Delta was represented at the national convention of the fraternity held recently.

CHI BETA PHI The Alpha Sigma Chapter of Chi Beta Phi, national honorary science fraternity, was established on the campus in 1933. Agnes Scott has the distinction of being the first woman ' s college to have a chapter accepted for membership in this society. The object of Chi Beta Phi is to promote interest in all fields of science. Students are elected on the basis of their scholastic standing and their interest in science. This year Chi Beta Phi has sponsored lectures by nationally prominent scientists, moving pictures of scientific in- terest, and several projects contributing to campus activities, one of the latter being the annual " Chemical Stunt " featured on High School Day ( May Day ) . Also of great importance is the key awarded annually to the chapte r ' s most outstanding member. ticers: Freddie Hachtel, President; Emy Evans, Vice President; Betty Phil- lips, Treasurer; Carol Munger, Corresponding Secretary. . . .

Students are nominated and elected on the basis of scholarship, co-operation, and leadership in academic and extra- curricular activities, citizenship, and service to the college, and promise of future use- fulness. We are proud that Agnes Scott is among the 600 institutions participating in this program. U4 BIBLE CLUB Bible Club is expressly for those interested in a deeper knowledge of the Bible.

The organization this year has reported dormitory society news, sponsored a fashion show and a good grooming program, and conducted surveys of campus social functions in order to provide reference material for future planning. The commit- tee is composed of a representative from each hall and cottage, one day student representative, the sec- retary, and the chairman. This group meets every two weeks to discuss various aspects of social living on campus and plan activities. Miss Nellie Scott has been the capable adviser of the Social Committee.

This year the series began with a lecture by the noted composer, Aaron Copland, whose subject was " Appreciation of Con- temporary Music " . In February, the Association pre- sented the famous author. Pearl S. Buck, who spoke on " Backgrounds for Understanding " . Robert Frost, one of Agnes Scott ' s favorite and perennial guests, visited the campus in March and as always, gave the audience a most enjoyable evening of poetry.

The Christmas Carol service held in conjunction with other campus choral groups, the performance of Debussey ' s BLESSED DAMOSEL, and the Spring Concert were the main activities of the Club this year. The Campus Chorus, made up of those interested in singing but not mem- bers of the Glee Club, contributes to the musical activities of the campus. Both groups participate in chapel programs throughout the year and often sing for Atlanta churches and clubs. This year the Glee Club and Campus Chorus were under the able direc- tion of Miss Roxie Hagopian. OFFICERS.

BLACKFRIARS Mix a little grease paint with a lot of hard work and long hours of practice and the re- sult will be a Blackfriars production. Black- friars was organized in 1915 and has con- tinued to be one of the most active clubs on the campus. The rewards for the work that goes into each production are two-fold: there is always the coveted applause from an ap- preciative audience, and three is the personal satisfaction of a job well done, rewarded by the rare privilege of " living " another life through a dramatic role. Two full length productions are given yearly plus several one act plays, all of which are also open to the public. Ample oppor- tunity for both acting and technical exper- ience is given by Blackfriars.

FRENCH CLUB The aim of the French Club is to stimulate a deeper understanding and appreciation of the French lan- guage, literature, and culture. To carry out this aim the club, at its monthly meetings, has studied French music, art, family traditions, and contemporary prob- lems. Guest speakers have enriched the members ' un- derstanding of these subjects. By the use of games and a club-sponsored French table in the dining room at which only French is spoken, the club has given its members opportunities to learn and practice con- versational French.

A delightful prelude to springtime, this year ' s campus-wide formal was held in the early spring and was one of the season ' s most festive events. Each fall the Freshmen class is Cotillion Club ' s special guest at a small formal dance which serves as an in- troduction to the many on-campus as well as off- campus activities that are held throughout the year. Teas and other informal parties are also sponsored by the club for the campus community. Cotillion Club has as its purpose the furthering of social activities on the Agnes Scott campus.

Meeting Freshmen at the train, helping them through registration, taking them on a sight-seeing tour of Atlanta, entertaining them at a Square Dance — these are the ways in which A. A. helps the new Hottentot get off to a good start. Not only does A. A. help to develop an interest in sports and physical well-being, but promotes such projects as the Lost and Found office, the sale of candied apples and cokes at class games, and the sale of the purple and white sweaters bearing the seal of Agnes Scott. It also sponsors the award of A.S. letters based on a point system of athletic achieve- ment.

Hockey season opened on Black Cat Day and, notwithstanding superstition, rolled on to a glorious finish with the seniors receiving the much desired Hoc- key Plaque. Credit goes to Kitty Currie, school manager, for the success of the inter-mural tournament. Two plans were introduced during the Fall quarter and, as a result of their success in the hockey program, were used in all the other team sports. For the first time inter-mural competition became entirely extra curricular. Also a varsity council, composed of the school and class managers, a member- at-large from each team, and two fa- culty members, was set up to choose the varsity and sub-varsity and to select the girl whom they felt had shown the best sportsmanship. Eliza Pollard re- ceived this award — the sportsmanship medal. -,: . , fWT - V fc £ ■ 4 ' for a goal. ' • BASKETBALL FRESHMAN TEAM.

Basketball, the major winter sport at Agnes Scott, is an important phase of the campus athletic program. The tour- nament consisted of seven games. The first six were inter-class and the seventh a varsity-sub-varsity tilt. The Seniot class came out on top, and Margie Thomason was awarded the medal for good sportsmanship in basketball. Miss Wilburn turned over complete responsibility for coaching the teams to class managers Sue Born, Carol Jacob, Jeannine Byrd and Barbara Quattlebaum. Margie Thomason served as school manager. Beginning this year captains were not elected. The manager appointed a captain for each game, and at the end of the season the teams elected an honorary captain. " Get it in there, Katharine!

In October, on Community Day, Dolphin Club was in charge of the swimming meet between the Freshmen and the Sophomores. The meet, which included form and racing, was won by the Sophomores. In November, Dolphin Club sponsored a swimming meet for the whole school. This meet included diving, racing, form, and comic skits. The Sophomores captured first place, and the Seniors won second. In March, the club swam at Shorter; and in April they presented their annual water ballet which was entitled " Follies. " 136 Agnes Scott ' s athletic program is a well-rounded one, including both team and individual sports. Archery is one of the most popular of the Fall and Spring games. Badminton demands both teamwork and individual skill. 137 DANCE GROUP First roil ' , left to right: Jackie King, Patty Morgan, Doris Powell, Georganna Buchanan, Dot Fincher, Jane Crook, Virginia Clift, Mary Ripley, Dot Oatley, Roberta Williams. , . .

MURPHY President, Student Body Princeton University " One look is worth a thousand words " — Old Chinese Proverb 54 Little Princeton, N. J. 2 February, 1951 Miss Mlf Martin Feature Editor, The Silhouette Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia Dear Mlf, This has been an extremely difficult task, made tougher by two facts: you have an unusually good-looking crop of girls, and my selections have had to be made on the basis of pictures and not of the girls themselves. My five roommates and I have Bpent several hours In the past three days passing the pictures around and dis- cussing their merits. Opinions have been so divergent that every one of the twenty girls has been suggested at one time or another. The only way I was ever able to come to a decision was to have my roommates write down their choices and give them to me. Then, with these as a basis, I constructed the list which you have before you. The final result, therefore, embodies my own Judgments, the others serving as aids only. It would be Impossible for me to list the criteria which were used, since the choices rested In the final analy- sis on the overall effect of each picture. How success- fully the photographer was able to create a mood was doubtless very Import ant In this, thereby making factors of significance out of the lighting, shading, angle of the shot, etc. After all, the beauty of the picture gives but an Indication of the beauty of the girl. No one Is more conscious than I of the Injustice done to the fourteen eliminated girls. The central question, therefore, was always: How pleasing Is the picture? How much grace does It capture? Does It reveal any depth ? When all had been Inspected In this way, those with the best general effect were retained. Then the process was repeated, each time with closer comparison, until the final choices - which were the most difficult. I hope this 1b satisfactory. Please keep me posted on what happens from now on, and Include clippings, pict- ures, and names, please. Best of luck to all of you from Fifty-Four Little Hall: Cy, Charlie, Bo, K.

COMMUNITY DAY A brilliant October day set the scene for the birth of a new tradition at Agnes Scott. Community Day began with an afternoon of hockey games, swimming and archery contests, faculty races, and was topped off by a picnic chicken supper. Class songs, the Frosh talent show, faculty and student presentations, continued on into the night. Agnes Scott ' s first Community Day ended with the Sophomore president presenting the beloved Black Cat to the Freshman Class for " good luck.
