Q PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OF AGNES SCOTT COLLEGE DECATUR, GEORGIA Member Plssociated Collegiate Press LIVE A N D BE H A P P Y WORK The center of our campus life as expressed on the sundial casts a fitting summary of our busy hours on campus. Four views of buildings around the sundial sym- bolize our ideals of life at Agnes Scott. Within the domitories we develop Christian social standards; the dining hall furnishes good food for our physical well-being; in the classroom buildings the faculty deeply stirs our intellectual curiosity. Life on the campus is encompassed by a simple religious faith. TO DR. WALLACE McPHERSON ALSTON WHO WORKS UNCEASINGLY WITH AND FOR US AT AGNES SCOTT.

WALLACE McPHERSON ALSTON PRESIDENT In his two years as President of Agnes Scott, Dr. Alston has come to be an inspiration to all who know him. His capable leadership and his pride in our college command respect and admiration from everyone. To us as students he presents a challenge for the future. SAMUEL SUERRY STUKES DEAN OF THE FACULTY REGISTRAR As a personal friend and an academic counselor, Dr. Stukes means a great deal to the students of Agnes Scott. We especially value his sincere interest in others and his friendly understanding of each individual. These qualities explain why he is an invaluable part of every phase of campus life. In Miss Scandrett the Agnes Scott ideal comes to life. She inspires all who know her with her poise, graciousness, unselfishness, and amazing insight. No other person on the campus means so much to the personal happiness of the students as does Miss Scandrett. CARRIE SCANDRETT DEAN OF STUDENTS ADMINISTRATION BUSINESS OFFICES " Would you please cash this check? " and " Mr. Jones, I need some lights for the play next week, " can be heard in these offices most any hour. Students and faculty alike deeply appreciate the helpfulness of the Business Man- ager ' s office and the efficiency of the Treasurer ' s office. LAURA STEELE The Registrar carries on many tasks which are important to the student. Registration, course selections, the sending and record- ing of grades, the catalogue, and post- graduate and job findings are all carried out by this office. PUBLICITY AND ALUMNAE OFFICE Every time one walks by the mail room, she sees the publicity board crowded with news of Agnes Scott from the newspapers. How nice it is to see your name in the paper and not to have known it was going to be there! The student, who will some day be a member of the Alumnae Association, has plenty of opportunity to know the organ- ization while on campus through its teas and the Alumnae Quarterly. " Congratulations on your birthday! " comes from this office to the surprise of each stu- dent every year. Friendly greetings, helpful talks, and making announcements for stu- dents are just a few of the services that this office pleasantly renders. ANN JACOB SECRETARY ELEANOR HUTCHENS DIRECTOR OF PUBLICITY AND ALUMNAE AFFAIRS SYBIL CORBETT MARTHA WEAKLEY ALUMNAE REPRESENTATIVE OFFICE MANAGER t t f • 1l 1 V M DORMITORY SUPERVISION ANNIE MAE F. SMITH NADA RHODES WYNN SUPERVISOR OF ASSISTANT DORMITORIES DINING HALL The efficiency with which all the dormitories and cottages are cared for is attributed to the management of this office. Everyday life is made easier and more pleasant by the man- aging of the two capable supervisors and their faithful negro staff. Efficient management of Agnes Scott s beautiful dining hall guarantees a cheerful atmosphere and well-planned meals for faculty and students who eat there together. OFFICE OF DEAN OF STUDENTS ISABELLA W. LEWIS ASSISTANT DEAN OF STUDENTS The co-operative staff in the dean ' s office keeps the students ' non-academic life flowing smoothly. No student is unknown or unwelcome by any individual in the dean ' s office. LILLIAN SMITH OCTAVIA GARLINGTON McCRACKEN ASSISTANT TOJHf ASSISTANT TO THE DEAN OF STUDENTS DEAN OF STUDENTS ELA BURT CURRY ADELAIDE RYALL BEALL ASSISTANT TO THE ASSISTANT TO THE DEAN OF STUDENTS DEAN OF STUDENTS LIBRARY ' Happy Is The Man Who Findeth Wisdom " is one of the inscriptions which greets the student as she enters the library. The thoroughly executed planning by Mrs carried out by her diligent staff, makes the library a haven LittL FAC U LTY ART The art department of Agnes Scott makes an important contribution to campus life. Inter- esting lectures and exhibits are regular feat- ures. There are a variety of courses offered which are suited to both the professional art student and the casual admirer. The Bible department of Agnes Scott is a fitting complement to a Christian college. Through the perceptive insight of the instructors the individual ' s faith is reaffirmed and her spiritual and intellectual insight enlarged. Religious thought and history are thoroughly covered in the variety of courses. NOT PICTURED: MARY LILY BONEY INSTRUCTOR ON LEAVE 1952-1953 BIOLOGY The biology department offers its students an understanding of the life around them, be if a microscopic plant, a single-cell animal, or man himself. With the microscope as a tool, students in the laboratory can actually observe and compare the vital func- tions of the living world. NOT PICTURED: NETTA ELIZABETH GRAY INSTRUCTOR NANCY PENCE GROSECLOSE ASSISTANT PROFESSOR CHEMISTRY In no other field of knowledge today is there such rapid development as in the field of chemistry. Agnes Scott chemistry students in classroom and laboratory learn principles that enable them to fully appreciate these developments. The well-equipped John Bulow Campbell Science Hall provides tools with which advanced students may do independent study and laboratory work. NOT PICTURED: MARY WALKER FOX ASSISTANT CLASSICAL LANGUAGES AND LITERATURE Under the auspices of the capable department of classical languages and literature the student is able to unearth the rich cultural treasures of the past for her own enjoy ment. Through the appreciation of the past this department helps the student to eval uate and discriminate in future life. ECONOMICS AND SOCIOLOGY The department of economics and sociology aids the student in developing an insight into financial and social problems within and outside her community. Interesting field trips and guest speakers are highlights of the courses. I MARGARET GUTHRIE WALTER EDWARD McNAIR TROTTER ASSISTANT PROFESSOR ASSISTANT PROFESSOR ENGLISH The English department is one which reaches all Agnes Scott students. By offering a wide range of courses, it provides a rich background for a liberal education. Besides directing students ' footsteps in profitable paths during college days, the capable members of this department furnish a basis for a rewarding intellectual life beyond campus experience. SPEECH Nearly everyone has some of the actor in him. One of the better known functions of the speech department is to train students in dramatics and play production. How- ever, before one reaches this stage, he must first study the fundamentals of effective speech. The dramatics club, Blackfriars, gives fine performances quarterly, and speech students often sponsor chapel programs that entertain the entire campus community. JANET LORING INSTRUCTOR FRENCH The members of the French department 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. This awareness makes the French department one of the most up-to-date on the Agnes Scott campus. A speaking and reading ability of the language is acquired plus a kn edge of the country itself. GERMAN One of the most popular language departments at Agnes Scott is the German de- partment. Emphasis is placed not only upon conversational ability but also upon a broad reading knowledge. The work in this department is made even more interesting by language clubs, record conferences, and special language tables in the dining hall. - v CATHERINE STRATEMAN SIMS ASSOCIATE PROCESSOR HISTORY AND POLITICAL SCIENCE Through a knowledge of past civilizations, the Agnes Scott history students learn to interpret present-day issues of world-wide interest. The history department offers courses that range from the early Greek and Roman periods to current events; from Renaissance civilization to American polit- ical parties. By taking advantage of this variety of studies one acquires a sound background for becoming an informed citizen. MATHEMATICS The day when women were excluded from the realm of mathematics has passed. Agnes Scott students are offered courses that train them in exact thinking, and may progress to such advanced subjects as analytic geometry of space. Students interested in mathematics find a challenging program at Agnes Scott. MUSIC LILLIAN ROGERS GILBREATH INSTRUCTOR Agnes Scott students benefit in many ways from the active program of the music department. They may take practical courses in organ, piano, violin, and voice; they may study the theory and history of music; they may attend the chapel programs and concerts presented by the music faculty, individual students, and the glee club. The entire Atlanta area appreciates the extra- curricular activities of the music department. NOT PICTURED: ISABEL MAWHA BRYAN INSTRUCTOR EDWIN CHAPPELL WHITE INSTRUCTOR Jt PHILOSOPHY The philosophy department offers Agnes Scott students an opportunity to develop their own powers of clear reasoning. Contact with the great thinkers of the past stimulates independent thinking within modern in- dividuals. No matter what philosophy students study or plan to do after graduation, their philosophy courses enable them to deal with questions concerning the ultimate meaning of life. PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND HEALTH JANET ALEXANDER COLLEGE PHYSICIAN PROFESSOR OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION Every girl on the campus is aided by the physical education department in achieving the Agnes Scott ideal of physical well-being. The wide choice of activities wthin ithe department includes instruction in dancing and most sports, classes in health, inter-class team competition, and extra- curricular activities for individuals. Thus students gain skills and poise as well as receiving the benefits of medical care. Agnes Scott ' s roomy infirmary has staff and facilities adequate for any emergency that might arise, while daily it serves the less serious medical needs of the campus. PHYSICS AND ASTRONOMY In the Bradley Observatory and the John Bulow Campbell Science Hall, Agnes Scott students keep up with the expanding world of science. Through the fine Agnes Scott telescope they explore the universe, while in the physics lab they discover what natural laws govern our world. In the physics and astronomy departments science takes on new significance for everyday life. JOHN INKSTER GOODLAD SAMU EL PAUL WIGGINS PROFESSOR OF EDUCATION ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF EDUCATION PSYCHOLOGY AND EDUCATION KATHERINE TAIT OMWAKE ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF PSYCHOLOGY EMILY S. DEXTER ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF PHILOSOPHY AND PSYCHOLOGY The psychology department strives to promote an understanding of the principles of psychology that students may apply to learning and all their contacts in life. Courses in the methods of experimentation lead to more advanced instruction in personality and the problems of psychology. SAMUEL GUERRY STUKES PROFESSOR OF PSYCHOLOGY AND EDUCATION NOT PICTURED: CHARLES BOWMAN WALDEN ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF EDUCATION SPANISH Both the written and spoken language find a place in the instruction of the Spanish department. By looking into all phases of the literature and civilization of another people, students broaden their minds ' horizons. They also acquire fluency in speaking the language so that it lives for them.

AND BARBARA WEST ELIZABETH FULLER JACKSON Elizabeth Fuller Jackson came to Agnes Scott College in 1923 and served as associate professor of history until her death in February 1952. During these years she rendered valuable and inspiring service to the changing generation of students coming under the charm of her rich information and her warm friendlinesss. She had an infinite capacity and enthusiasm for work and a talent for friendship. The interest she felt in European History, in English, in Russian History, she succeeded in communicating to her students, and instilling in them a real appreciation of Art, Music, and Litera- ture. A deep personal interest in her students was the outstanding characteristic of her teaching. The faithfulness and loyalty that marked her service to Agnes Scott was a reflection in our sphere of her brave Christian Character and in her faith and loyalty to God and her church. Her fine, rich spirit which had poured itself out so generously in the years of service and responsibility found itself sustained and soothed in her sufferings, and she faced death with dignity, courage, and faith. N MEMORI AM In memory of Phyllis Ann Fisher who would have graduated this June. Phyllis was born February 6, 1931, and her home was in Paris, Kentucky. At Agnes Scott her major was Biology, and she served as an active member of Christian Association Council. A beloved member of her class, she was known for her genuine friendliness, sense of humor, and zest for living; her death shortly before the opening of this school year has meant a loss to us all.

When the Class of ' 54 returned to Agnes Scott In the fall, they numbered only a few more than 70. However, they have continued to show the enthusiasm which won for them the Spirit Cup during their sophomore year. Junior sponsors made their large sister class feel at home on the campus during the first weeks of school. On Feb- ruary 7th " Glory Be, " or " 215 in One Fell Swoop, " gave the campus something to talk about for many weeks. With such eagerness and enthusiasm in the past, bigger and better things are certainly in store for this class next year, and with the coming of a new term, " Hail to the Red and White " will again be heard.

The Freshman class descended upon Agnes Scott in the fall of ' 52 one-hundred-eighty strong. In Black Cat the versatile talents of the newcomers — dancing, singing, and even an orchestra — were demon- strated. In sports the class of ' 56, spurred on by much class spirit, has excelled. January 20 was " get acquainted " day for the boarding and day students; a treasure hunt, skits depicting boarding and day student life, and dinner together in the dining hall ended the day with each girl feeling closer to her classmates. " The Freshman class is mighty fine.

As he was sitting in the palace garden, a fairy princess came to him. She tried to make the prince happy by restoring the beauty of the garden, but the prince was still lonely. Finally, the sweetheart rose came forth, and the prince fell in love with her. They were married and lived happily ever after. The May Day Dell made a natural setting for the brilliant colors of the dancing blossoms of this original fairy story.

After a coffee in the library, they were guests at the Blackfriars ' fall production in Gaines. Informal contact such as this helped the trustees and faculty to become better acquainted. " ■■ HI M MOCK ELECTION On October 23 at chapel time the halls of Presser resounded with cheers and shouts of " I Like Ike ' ' and " We Say Adlai. " At the rally General Elbert Tuttle spoke for Eisenhower while Mr. James Mackay spoke for Stevenson. Immediately after the speeches the students voted on new voting machines in Buttrick Lobby. This project, sponsored by Mortar Board, gave a feeling of actual participation in a nation-wide movement. RECEPTION FOR SIR GLADWYN JEBB One of the distinguished guests which Lecture Association presented was Sir Gladwyn Jebb, British Diplomat and head of his country ' s delegation to the United Nations. His topic for discussion was " The United Nations and the World. " Following the lecture, a reception was given for Sir Gladwyn and Lady Jebb in Murphey Candler. ACTIVITIES ACTIVITIES— PUBLICATIONS.

Published weekly and supervised entirely by the students themselves, the News gives information, recapitulates major events, fore- casts future activities, reports and analyzes campus opinion and sometimes even launches a crusade — as the highly suc- cessful one last fall which led to the production of the faculty revue. The unsuspecting reader never knows when he will unfold a paper with a picture of Dr. Posey with a Pogo sign, or when the feature writer will break into Ogden Nash poetry, the sports reporter into Bill Stern superlatives, or the editor into international politics.

ASSOCIATIONS STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION Student Government is a hard working organization which governs the students efficiently and fairly. The association began its year of activities on campus with an orientation program designed to provide valuable assistance to the new students. A formal reception for the entire college community under the sponsorship of the organization climaxed the events of the opening week of school. Included in the year ' s program of student government activities were a new sewing machine for the campus, planning discussions for student government chapel, dis- cussing dormitory rules, sponsoring a treasure hunt for the freshmen, serving as the national student association committee on campus, conducting discussions on the new election procedure, and carrying on the many routine activities in enforcing dormitory regulations. iittee: First Row: Judy Promnit7, Keller Henderson, Bertie Bond, Belle Miller, Anne Cooper.

This passage was chosen to fill a need, to emphasize a part of its program, and to help each student grow in her spiritual life. Christian Association is the fulfillment on campus of the fourth Agnes Scott ideal — simple religious faith. Its program including vesper programs, prayer services, chapel programs, which are car- ried out on campus is under the charge of the Cabinet. The Council supervises all off-campus activities, such as the Scottish Rite Hospital and the Negro missions. Dr. Frederick Olert, pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church of Richmond, Virginia, was the Religious Emphasis Week speaker. Chapel sermons, group discussions, and personal conferences with Dr. Olert strengthened the religious faith of all students. Christian Asso Betty Stein, Hi Jan Verner.

LECTURE ASSOCIATION This year tlie Agnes Scott Lecture Association has brought to the campus three outstanding attractions. The first of these was the production of Shakespeare ' s Love ' s Labours Lost by the Players Incorporated, a high comedy per- formed in an admirable way. The second attraction was the visit to the campus made by Robert Frost, famed American poet, with whom student members of the Lec- ture Association dined one evening. Interest was also aroused by the lecture delivered on campus by the out- standing British diplomat, Sir Sladwyn Jebb. These three events, which were sponsored by Lecture Association, are adequate proof of the value this organization has been to Agnes Scott.

The Agnes Scott Glee Club, under the direction of Miss Roxie Hagopian, seeks to bring to the campus community programs of fine choral music throughout the year. The Christmas program is the climax of the organization ' s fall activities and is eagerly awaited by the campus and a Atlanta. This year the Glee Club presented Benjamin Brit- ten ' s " Ceremony of Carols " at its Christmas concert. The spring concert featured Mozart ' s opera, " Bastien and Bastienna " and a group of popular and folk songs. The Glee Club also serves as a choir at the weekly convo- cation services. GLEE CLUB MUSIC CLUB The Agnes Scott Music Club is a new organization on campus which has many future aspirations. Already it has become a member of the Georgia Federation of Music Clubs, which is affiliated with a national group. At its monthly meetings students of voice, piano, and organ give performances of the music of one certain great com- poser, about whom the club centers its program theme. This group hopes to fulfill a need on the campus by fur- thering interest in a subject that offers inexhaustible re- sources of pleasure. It realizes that a small beginning does not necessarily mean small future prospects; this is a club with a gleam in its eye. 3 o ' ft J Members: First Row: Margaret Rogers, Mary Hood, Joan Adair, Ida Rogers, Frances Ogden, Frances Earnest, Rameth Richard.

Adaline Miller, Virgin Donna Dugger, Ann W. Jones, Diche Arm s, Betsy Hill, Roberta Williams. Frances Ginn The Second Rebekah Garden Club was established in the early fall of 1950 by a very select group of interested nature lovers. The primary purpose of this small, but active group was more bushes for the colonnade. How- ever, this was not the only purpose — the real goal being general beauti- fication of the campus. Members went around in their merry, little way, scattering seeds of happiness and culture into fertile soil. The ladies were guided through the rainy and dry seasons by their beloved sponsor and sweetheart, little Wally Alston. Their familiar cry-bushes — can still be t heard ringing through the colonnade.

ARCHERY On most sunny afternoons this is a familiar sight from the library windows. Archery, under the management of Sally Legg this year, has its big season in spring quarter when the tournaments are held. Of special interest was the inter-collegiate telegraphic tournament from May 13th to May 23rd. Cake and grab bag shoots on our own campus were also a big attraction spring quarter. SOFTBALL The Softball manager for this year was Caroline W ells. The spring intramural games are the main Softball events. When the annual went to press, much speculation was being made as to who would win the tournament — would the seniors continue their lead and graduate triumphantly, or would the freshmen bring out hidden talent as they did in other sports? Our ardent fan, unofficial coach, and accurate umpire, Mr. Jones, spurs our efforts and zeal during the Softball season. TENNIS During fall quarter the tennis tournaments were held. Mary Beth Robinson defeated Nancy Burkitt for the singles championship. Ten- nis was managed this year by Marianne McPherson. Tournaments and the tryouts for tennis club were held during spring quarter The first anniversary of our laykold surface tennis courts finds them in constant use fall and spring quarters. w DANCE GROUP An integral part of our campus activity is the dance group directed by Miss Eugenie Dozier. The main purpose of the dance group is to intro- duce the art of dancing to girls who have had little experience in this particular field. The annual production of this group has become a tradition of our campus. This year Dance Group presented a contem- porary ballet, Rodeo, and the Nutcracker Suit.
