THE 1956 SILHOUETTE OF AGNES SCOTT COLLEGE DECATUR, GEORGIA SALLY SHIPPEY, Editor ALVIA COOK, Business Manager " I ' d rather be a Hottentot . . . " Well, jeepers — I didn ' t mean to be singing a solo! I ' m Aggie Hottentot — and you ' re " Scotties " aren ' t you? I ' m getting ready to give a quick review of the year to a few friends — Caspar the Ghost " 59, Droopy ' 58, Dennis the Menace ' 57, and Pogo ' 56. Since you ' re my namesakes, why don ' t you come too? The Agnest Scott faculty was tops in my book! Their outstanding intellectual ability combined with a warm friendliness and interest in the individual made them worthy examples of the Agnes Scott ideal of the whole person. Dennis just reminded me not to leave out the students. Could be he was hinting for a look at some pretty girls? He didn ' t have to look far — you saw ' em everywhere! . . . streaming out of Buttrick, hunched over a library desk, rushing to the mail room, standing in the cafeteria line, on the tennis courts, signing out in the L.O. for a date ... or smiling from the pages of this annual. Where else but at Agnes Scott could such a unique combination of brains, worms! Sports and organizations played an important part in every Scottie ' s life, and there were activities to suit the taste of all. There were sports for every season — we even added fencing to the repetoire! — and activities such as dances, plays, lectures, and discussion kept them busy too. I do believe Dennis. Pogo, Droopy and Caspar were convinced about what I ' ve been saying — ' cause listen . . . " I ' d rather be a Hottentot than a multimillionaire; I ' d rather be a Hottentot than sit in the President ' s chair. It ' s the grandest place you ' ll ever see If you don ' t believe it just come with me, I ' d rather be a Hottentot than a multimillionaire. " beauty, and personality be found! But you ' ll soon see for yourself!

Professor of English, was for innumerable students, a year-long spring. The compelling warmth of her appreciation for literature and ever new enthusiasm for learning acted as the sun on the first stirring leaves of our minds, calling them to make the hard effort to grow up into a seemingly inexplicable world which would seem the more understandable and yet the more won- drous as we attained greater stature from which to look about us. In every class after that, we rediscov- ered our minds when Miss Laney would share ideas with us as on a comparable level, and we became peers in appreciation — or at least, potential peers with an incentive. She brought home to all of us the pleasure of learning, the unequaled delight of minds encounter- ing living ideas. Steering us away from the over- enthusiastic reading of our own meaning into a work, she still respected any provable differing interpretations. But it has been not only English majors and her particular sophomores who have benefited from Miss Laney. Her loving loyalty to Agnes Scott has had many different forms: a deep concern for the college ' s spirit of learning, its standards and attitudes. She was chairman of the A.S. Lecture Association from 1935 until 19.53, and as one of her colleagues stated. " She served with distinction. " Her gracious hospitality warmly expressed the college ' s welcome to visiting speakers such as Lord Cooper. Robert Hutchins. Carl Sandburg, and Edna St. Vincent Millay. It was largely due to her efforts that the community first enjoyed visits from Robert Frost, in 1935-6, then 1939-40, and annually from 1944. As a result of their own personal friendship, she has been able to contribute generously to the Frost Collection in the library. Her integrity as a scholar is widely admired, and she has kept up pro- fessional relationships through her membership in the Modern Language Association and her work with the Atlanta English Club. Her interest in her own field has been intense, but not exclusive, and she has been active in the League of Women Voters, informed and concerned about political affairs and wanting her stu- dents to be aware, also. Her interest in students was not confined to the school room, and her teas for her classes were always a pleasure. A charming conversationalist herself, she inspired good talk from all. and her guests soon re- laxed, feeling welcomed into good company. She would have her courses be not guided tours into new countries, but rather she would teach her students the language, so that we can travel through them our- selves, prepared to glean riches which we might have passed by unseeing, had we not been taught. Emma May Laney " Why don ' t you cut Saturday and go off this week- end? " " I have Miss Laney. " " Oh. " This conversation has been heard more than once in the thirty-five years Miss Laney has been at Agnes Scott, and is self- explanatory. After the first bleak hour when our sophomoric false complacency was jerked out from under us by a few rapid questions and an, " ' It ' s ob- vious, you haven ' t prepared your lesson, " we usually went home and gladly devoted the expected amount of time and care to class preparation, because we recogn- ized the fairness and concern for us that was so integral a part of her teaching. And the next class would go at the exuberant and demanding tempo that comes when a teacher gives unstintingly and gladly of her best and expects and receives a matching quality of effort from her students. Her energy and enthusiasm are legendary and con- tagious, and if we forget the details of the Canterbury pilgrimage we will remember Chaucer ' s spirit and freshness and smile with pleasure vhen we see his name. . . . THE FACU Wallace M. Alston PRESIDENT What we need within the framework of our democracy is to discover ways to lay hold upon voung people of unusual endowment, then to prepare them for the tasks of our day — an aristocracy of intelligence, if you will, but one that is imbued with a strong sense of social responsibility. I realize increasingly that an institution deliberately accepting for itself the task of trying to discover, train, and direct the energies of unusually gifted young people assumes a tremendous responsi- bility. Upon such an institution the obligation is laid to teach young people that privilege entails liability and to inspire in them a desire to serve God in a ministry to mankind — not condescendingly, surely, but humbly and sacrificially. Wallace M. Alston Guerry S. S+ukes DEAN OF THE FACULTY I hope tliat every girl at Agnes Scott will gain an inner strength which will help her to face life with a faith that is serene, simple, and sincere. S. G. Stukes Carrie Scandre+t DEAN OF THE STUDENTS As the Silhouette brings memories of the people and events that have made this a happy year at Agnes Scott, may you never forget the richness of life that is always yours through friends, fun. good sportsman- ship, and deep intellectual and spiritual experience. Carrie Scandrett ADMINISTRATION As students passed the administrative offices on the first floor of Buttrick. they heard the tapping of type- writers and the sound of cheery voices and they glimpsed pleasant smiles. The administrative officers were capably and efficiently tending to the business of the college. Mrs. Paul Turner, Dr. Alston ' s secretary, might be found drawing up the weekly calendar or typing birthday greetings to students in addition to her other duties. Mr. J. B. Tart. Treasurer, managed the school bank, the post office and book store, took care of tuitions and paid school bills. He was ably assisted by Mrs. Jerry Marshall, a newcomer to Agnes Scott in 195.5 from Kentucky. The Business Manager, Mr. P. J. Rogers, Jr. was busy with the building of the new dormitory. He handled everything bought for the col- lege, from smallest erasers to dining room furniture. His secretary. Miss Jo Ann Dodson. was new to Agnes Scott in 1955 but was not new to the community. The work of Mr. Dexter White, Engineer, and his staff, extended to all parts of the campus community and included tending the steam plant, fixing knocking rad- iators and preparing Presser Hall for chapel services. Mrs. Paul Tun J. C. Tart; Mrs. Jerry Marshall; Dexter White Evelyn W. Ga ADMINISTRATION The staff in the Registrar ' s office was always ready to help students, and they were responsible for many activities necessary to the smooth functioning of the college. Headed by Dr. Samuel Guerry Stakes, they carried out duties which included publishing the col- lege catalogue and keeping records on each student. Miss Laura Steele, assistant Registrar and Director of Admissions, corresponded with prospective students and interviewed those who visited the college. Secre- taries in the Registrar ' s Office were special students, Barbara Duval and Jean Knapp. Mr. Edward McNair was the Director of Development. The Alumnae Association was recognized as an im- portant part of the Agnes Scott community. Not only have the members in recent years annually contributed to the college a sum of money equal to a million dol- lars of endowment, but they have also helped to pro- vide a vocational service and to maintain the Alumnae house as a guest home for the college. Miss Anne Worthy Johnson and Miss Barbara Northey served in the capacities of Director of Publicity and as Director of Admissions. The Book Store, managed by Mrs. Evelyn W. Gar- wood, sold books and refreshments and was an ideal between-class gathering spot for students and faculty. s Steele; Barbara Northey: Anne Worthy John Eloise H. Ketchin and Mary P. Chapman Noell, Tavie Garlington and Sarah Tucker; Dr. McCain ADMINISTRATION One of the busiest places on the Agnes Scott campus was the Dean ' s office. Students could be seen scurrying to and from this part of Main building all day long to send telegrams, to sign out for dates, to pick up the weekly calendar, or just to chat with the friendly staff. All campus visitors became acquainted with the bustling activity of this office. Members of the staff were Sarah Tucker, better known as " Tuck " to all the Freshmen whom she advised, Octavia Garlington, who counselled the Sophomores and gave vocational guid- ance, Mrs. Curry, director of the Student Aid program, Mrs. McCracken, the office manager. Marjorie Noell. and Harriet Ashley. Their friendly and interested atti- tude made this office a center of the Agnes Scott com- munity where everyone was welcome. Mrs. Annie Mae Smith The dormitory supervisor, Mrs. Annie Mae Smith, and her assistant, Mrs. Nada Wynn, were responsible for keeping the dormitories as comfortable and as home- like as possible. They were in charge of an army of workers who prepared the buildings for the mass ar- rival of students at the opening of school, and cleaned the rooms during the year. Mrs. Nada Wynn ADMINISTRATION Dr. irginia Tuggle and her two nurses. Miss Jodie Horn and Mrs. Alice Bray, looked after the health of the students. Whether a girl had the flu or a sprained ankle she knew that she would receive good care. The McCain Library was efficiently supervised by Mrs. Edna Byers. Lillian Newman, Harriett Stovall, Mrs. Webb and Mrs. Currens. Their year-round job entailed much more than the checking in and out of books. For instance, one of their more interesting duties was the arranging of displays representative of all the de- partments of the college. Highlights of these was the annual Robert Frost collection, which included first editions and limited editions, many of which had been contributed by Miss Laney and by Robert Frost himself. and Jodie Horn Mrs. Bhel Hatfield The dining hall was under the direction of Mrs. Hat- field who supervised the planning, buying and serving of tasty meals. A familiar sight on the campus in the evening were Mr. Jones, Mr. Arniistead. and Mr. Parrot, our night vatchmen. who assured the safety of everyone. ART DEPARTMENT Miss Mariaiina van Rossen Hoogendyk. visiting in- structor in art, had just completed graduate work at the University of Georgia. She has loved art since she was very young, a Swedish nurse being amono; the people who have helped to develop her appreciation for it. Miss van Hoogendyk was particularly interested in ceramics among other fields of art. Mr. Warren and Miss van Hoogendyk arranged the many art exhibits which came to Agnes Scott during the year. The highlight of the exhibitions was the showing of " The Adoration of the Shepherds " by El Greco and " The Nativity " by Fiorezo di Lorenzo, two masterpieces loaned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. an Hoogendyk and an art lab Professor Ferdinand Warren, the head of the Art Department, gained wide recognition for his painting. He was a judge at Telfair Academy of Arts and Sci- ences art exhibit and has shown paintings at the Regional Art Gallery. He taught painting and drawing. His skill and industriousness in another line of art work was evidenced by the attractive furnishings that he has made for his home. Mr. Ferdinand Wa Paul Leslie Garbe The head of the Bible Department, Professor Paul Leslie Garber, was noted among Biblical scholars for his work on the Howland-Garber reconstruction of Solomon ' s Temple, a model which was kept at Agnes Scott. Mr. Garber did supply preaching and followed affairs in Palestine and the Middle East with interest. In the summer of 1954 he was a representative to the world council of churches. BIBLE DEPARTMENT Mr. Samuel A. Cartledge, a visiting professor, has been on the faculty of Columbia Seminary for twenty-five years. He once spent a sabatic year in Switzerland and in the Holy Land and was able to recount details of his trip to help to make his lectures interesting. Since his chief hobby was photography, he had taken many beautiful colored slides of Palestine, which he showed to his classes. Twinkling eyes and a smile for everyone were char- acteristic of Miss Mary Lily Boney, assistant professor. Students admired her gaily decorated office and the colored slides which she, like Mr. Cartledge, had a hobby of taking. She and Mr. Garber were faculty advisors of the Bible Club. Mary Boney and Samuel A. Cartledge Solomon ' s Temple Model The Biology Department is headed by Professor Anna Josephine Bridgman. an Agnes Scott graduate. She had taught most of her life, but at one time she assisted in a physics laboratory at Langley Field, and she had worked at Oak Ridge. Miss Bridgman devoted part of her time to research on protozoa. BIOLOGY DEPARTMENT Lorin W. Roberts, associate professor of biology, was known to students by his botany courses and by his keen sense of humor. In addition to teaching, he was engaged in research on the localization of enzyme sys- tems in plant tissues. His fondness for being out of doors led him to take many camping trips with his wife, Betty, and to serve as a forest ranger in the West for seven summers. He is faculty advisor of Chi Beta Phi. Friendliness and a kren interest in the activities of the students were tv o notable features of Miss Nancy Pence Groseclose, as they were of many other Agnes Scott teachers. She was affectionately known to the students .is Miss Grose. The courses that she taught were histology, embryology, and physiology. The botany laboratories were conducted by Mrs. Netta Elizabeth Gray, instructor, who carried on her own research. In her spare time she enjoyed gardening and stamp collecting. Miss Anne Martha Salyerds, instructor in biology, spe- cialized in parisitology. One of her hobbies was horse- back riding. She and students who shared this interest drove to the stables many Saturday afternoons. Lorln Roberts and Miss Nancy Gr Mrs. Netta close; Anne Salyerds and Liking the unexpected, Miss Elizabeth Crigler, asso- ciate professor of chemistry, believed in the saying that " variety is the spice of life. " Perhaps this outlook explained her fondness for travel and the active part that she played in such community organizations as the League of Women Voters. In such ways as serving fruit salad during an organic demonstration. Miss Crigler brought variety, as well as interest, into her classes. Dr. W. H. Jones from Emory University was a favorite of his three students. Being an ardent Pogo fan rated him high on everybody ' s list. Mrs. Mary Walker Fox, assistant, conducted the 101 labs. She was always patient in helping students over the rough spots in experiments and sympathized with burned fingers and broken bottles. Her " always hold the test tube pointing this way " was a familiar sound in lab. Mrs. Dianne Shell Rousseau, assistant, assisted in analytical chemistry labs and in the research program. Students who sampled her fried chicken vowed that she was an excellent cook as well as an able chemist. Dr. W. J. Frierson CHEMISTRY DEPARTMENT Mr. W. J. Frierson, Professor of Chemistry, head of his department and teacher of inorganic classes, was busy writing a research paper about chromatography and coiorimetric phases of analysis. Yet he found time for woodworking, tennis, hunting and fishing, and often could be seen gardening on Saturday afternoons. He and his wife frequently entertained students at their home, and many girls have pleasant memories of evenings spent there. -igler and W. Mrs. Diann Mary Fox and Miss Slick and ten CLASSICS DEPARTMENT One might have said that Agnes Scott ' s Classical De- partment had gone to the dogs, although its expressed and realized objective was to acquaint as many stu- dents as possible with some of the treasure of the Graeco-Roman civilization-for their own delight and enjoyment. The dogs of the department were the Cairn terriers of Miss M. Kathryn Click, head of the depart- ment, and Mrs. Youngs beagle, Beaglet. Miss Click ' s terriers were her chief non-academic in- terest and the main source of relaxation, for she had found it a fascinating study to breed and show them. She was also a bridge fan and liked to read — par- ticularly literature and political essays. Mrs. Young ' s Beaglet shared the lime-light with her two sons. Her past activities of being a Cub Scout den mother, an active member of the Atlanta Society Archealogical Institute and a maker of ceramic jewelry were largely replaced by her classes here at Agnes Scott. Mrs. Young Miss Mell, Miss Anna G. Smith M;ss Howell and students teache ECONOMICS AND SOCIOLOGY DEPARTMENT Miss Mildred Rutherford Mell, Professor of Economics and Sociology, was dean of women at Shorter College before she came to Agnes Scott. She is active in eco- nomic and sociological affairs in the community and nation. Lecture Association owes much to her capable work as its faculty advisor. Miss Anna Greene Smith, associate professor of Eco- nomics and Sociology, also carried her interest in sociology into her work outside the college, for she helped with many community activities including Fam- ily Service and the Red Cross. EDUCATION DEPARTMENT Mr. Richard L. Henderson, Professor of Education, was head of his department which, for the first time this year, has been separated from the Psychology Department. This was necessary because of the in- creasing interest of Agnes Scott students in the study of teaching. Both Mr. Henderson and Mr. John Good- land were on joint appointment with Emory University and Agnes Scott. Miss Miriam Howell, assistant pro- fessor, was a new member in the department of edu- cation this year. ENGLISH DEPARTMENT Professor George P. Hayes, the head of the English Department, won the admiration of the college com- munity for his " bravery under fire " as chapel speaker on Suppressed Desires " Day. He also had a special place in the hearts of the students for his work as facuhy advisor of Agnes Scott ' s very successful debat- ing team. In a popular course on argumentation he led a practical study of the subject which included class debates and oral discussions. Professor Emma May Laney had her last year before retiring from an active teaching position highlighted by her trip to Mississippi in the fall to deliver the address honoring her college English teacher at her class reunion. In the winter Miss Laney witnessed Mr. Robert Frost ' s fifteenth visit to the campus. The poet first came to Agnes Scott at her request and has made annual trips here ever since. Miss Ellen Douglass Leyburn, associate professor of English, was one of many teachers whom Agnes Scott is proud to have among its graduates. She served as president of the Beta chapter of Phi Beta Kappa and as a faculty marshal. Mortar Board and May Day Com- mittee owed much to her capable work as a faculty advisor to them. Miss Annie May Christie, associate professor, made a special study of American literature and taught popu- lar courses in this field. During her leisure moments she liked to garden and to listen to symphonic music. Miss Margaret Guthrie Trotter, associate professor of English, was the faculty sponsor of Folio, the fresh- man creative writing club. A rumor went around cam- pus that she had written and published short stories anonymously. Miss Roberta Winter, associate professor, specialized in speech and the dramatic arts. When she attended Agnes Scott, she was an active member of Blackfriars in which she said that she always played men ' s roles. She now directs the productions of this group. The faculty advisor for B.O.Z.. the upperclass writing club, was Miss Janef Preston, assistant professor. She had recently had several of her own poems published in poetry magazines. Her interest in creative writing was carried into her classes on narrative writing and on verse forms. Agnes Scott was happy to see Mr. Walter Edward McNair, assistant professor of English, return to teach- ing this fall after an absence due to illness. Mr. Mc- Nair in his courses offered instruction i n literature and in critical writing on the freshman and sophomore level. Assistant Professor Mary L. Rion joined the Agnes Scott faculty for the first time in the fall of 1955. She had previously taught at Hood and Mount Holyoke Colleges. Miss Julianne Hale, instructor, assisted Miss Winter in teaching speech and drama and in working with Black- friars. She designed the set used for the gorup ' s pro- duction of " Antigone " in the fall. M;ss Margaret Phyth; Miss Muriel Harn FRENCH DEPARTMENT Miss Margaret Taylor Pythian, the head of the French Department, taught courses in the French novel and drama. Her interests outside the college included housekeeping, taking walks, reading, and fishing and swiinniing in the summer. One of her specialties was making French onion soup. Little philosophical saying enhanced the classes of M. Pierre Thomas, assistant professor, as do the clever sketches which he drew to illustrate stories for French conversation periods. Miss Mary Virginia Allen, assistant professor of French, was also a lover of cats. In fact she said that when she retired she would like to run an S.P.C.A. home. Miss Allen is the faculty adviser of the French Club. A new arrival to the department this year was Miss GERMAN DEPARTMENT Chloe Steele, assistant professor, of Denton. Texas. She was a scrabble and bridge fan and delighted in read- ing mystery stories. Mrs. Frank A. Sewell, instructor, was an Agnes Scott graduate who returned to teach here this year for the first time. She said that she was one who " flutters in all directions. " and that three activities which she enjoyed were reading, housekeeping, and " scribbling plays. " Miss Muriel Harn. Professor of German and Spanish, was well known for her afternoon parties — attended by German and Spanish students, and her dog Mickey. Students delighted in seeing her many souvenirs of her travels, including the beautifully carved wooden Nativity scene. Miss Florence E. Smith, Mr. Richard Drake and Mrs. Cathe HISTORY AND POLITICAL SCIENCE DEPARTMENT The head of the Department of History and Political Science, Professor Walter B. Posey was chosen by the seniors as investiture speaker this year. History majors remember Mr. Posey ' s " definite harrow " and recall that his " favorite " painting is " Crossing the Dela- ware, " while all students know his friendly smile. Mr. Posey was a travel enthusiast and found that life had no dull moments. He was an authority on American history. Miss Florence E. Smith, associate professor, was very interested in chamber music, especially Mozart. She played the piano, organ, and violin and had performed with various musical groups in and around Atlanta. Gardening and flower arranging were two of her other interests. Mr. Richard Drake, visiting instructor, who played the flute, was another music lover in the history de- partment. Mr. Drake ' s other hobby was taking and de- veloping photographs. He was a candidate for the Ph.D. at Emory University. Mrs. Catherine Strateman Sims was chairman of the conunittee to select Fulbright scholars for the United Kingdom. Having come originally from Britain, she had an accent which students love.

Calde PHILOSOPHY DEPARTMENT Mr. C. Bentun Kline returned to Agnes Scott this fall after a leave of absence to work on his Doctorate. Between being with his young son and writing his dissertation it was understandable why he said that he has no time for hobbies. Philosophy 201 students will always recall his classroom desk which went through a daily work-out as he made it illustrate points in philosophies from that of Thales on. Mr. Kline was adviser to Mortar Board. PHYSICS AND ASTRONOMY DEPARTMENT Professor William A. Calder whizzing out of the base- ment of the science hall on his motorcycle was a familiar sight at Agnes Scott. Besides his teaching and his family. Dr. Calder had many and varied interests ranging from the study of light and sound waves to playing the harp. He recorded the Greek music for Antigone and had made records of his " singing " dog. Stormy. The Bradley Observatory, which he helped to plan, made his astronomy courses popular with students. Mrs. Anne Louniir Clayton, assistant, who graduated from Agnes Scott last year, works with Mr. Calder in the physics department. Her husband and young babies are her main interests outside the college. Mr. C.

Mis5 Llewellyn Wilburn Miss Glendora Boy Miss Eugenie Doiier and M Harriette Lapp Dr. Virginia Tuggl. Miss Muriel H SPANISH DEPARTMENT Miss Muriel Harn, professor of Spanish and head of the department was also head of the German depart- ment. Mrs. Florence J. Dunstan, associate professor, was always ready to help foreign students here or at other colleges. Her house was a home to three at Georgia. Bessie Tift, and Princeton. Miss Mellissa Cilley, assistant professor, was fond of traveling. Stamps, coins, and candid snapshots served as souvenirs of her trips. One of her never-to-be- forgotten experiences abroad was riding on a camel in Sahari! Miss Mary Eloise Herbert, instructor, spent much of her time in 195.5-56 working on her doctorate, but she did not entirely neglect her hobbies of stamp collecting and of listening to classical music. PSYCHOLOGY DEPARTMENT Professor Samuel Guerry Stukes was the head of his department. A keen sense of humor, a contagious laugh, and a seemingly inexhaustible supply of stories are traits which endeared him to students. He was always ready to help them with their problems and was advisor on academic work to the sophomores. Miss Katharine Tait Omwake, associate professor, like the other members of the department, was active in psychological research. Together with Miss Dexter, she wrote An Introduction to the Fields of Psychology, and she had done much experimental work with children.

They sure did act sophisticated and dignified. That night they asked me back for a Left- overs Party. I knew that then I had nothing to fear.

I really didn ' t mind because I got to go to the Seniors ' Dumb Bunny Party at lunch. Jake had made a giant size bunny for the table. Besides, all mv friends were there! Investiture was the big weekend. Little Girls ' Day dawned bright and clear but not before my Seniors had donned their fanciest pinafores and wildest cow- boy outfits for their final fling of childhood. The Lup- ton Lovelies were the cutest Brownie troop ever. Bucket was in charge of the day ' s activities which started with noisy invasion of the dorms. Artillery was the water gun. Breakfast was the wildest. Songs were sung, games played, milk spilled, and maybe a little food eaten. Then to classes with favorite teddy bears as guests. At chapel Randell, beard and all. appeared (thanks to B Battle I and the merry skit was under way. The little girls sang their playing song and then Randell opened his big book. Animated Arts or Loosely Liberal. Plato and Pogo (Sa and Nonette), Desiree Stubbs, Picasso (Vannie), the Dinosaur ( Berta ) . and Tom Jones Tritt all stepped from the pages to help sing the finale.

They had been hosted to a gay Coke Party by sponsors Miss Boney and the Roberts. They missed Huey but they were heartened bv her progress.

AGNES SCOTT NEWS The Agnes Scott News, a weekly paper, served the students not only as a source of information about school activities and as a reminder of international affairs, but also as a means of stimulating discussion on important question. In the past year such campus matters as the dress policy and the selection of charities for junior Jaunt were well aired in the paper, and articles expressing student opinions on national and international affairs were published. One of the new and popular features of the News was a column about the lives of various facul ty members. Students themselves managed and edited the Neivs. Two staffs are kept busy during the year; the literary group wrote articles and did make-up work, while the business section took care of circulation and advertising. The staff heads were elected by the student body in the preceding spring, and reporters were selected by tryout. BUSINESS STAFF; Virgini. EDITORS: Ele, McClurkin, B.

AURORA The Aurora, a quarterly literary magazine for student expression, has been published for the past sixty-five years. All students interested in writing were invited to submit poetry, short stories, essays, book reviews, and literary criticism. The magazine cover and illus- trations provided opportunities for ait students to have their work recognized and enjoyed. One feature which was added to the Aurora in 1955 was an edi- torial entitled " Know Your College. " In the winter quarter Randall Jarrell judged a poetry contest which was sponsored by the magazine. The Aurora not only afforded students a chance to have their work pub- lished and helped to keep alive the spirit of friendly competition among them, but it also gave constructive criticism to them to aid in their literary development.

SILHOUETTE Work on the 1956 Silhouette began last summer as Mary, Sally, and Donna, the three elected officers of the staff " burned up the mails " with letters to each other and the printers and engravers about plans for the book. The dummy was drawn up, and September activities went into full gear. The staff photographer became a familiar sight at college functions, and copy writers hounded bulletin boards, teachers, and club officers for information.

HONOR ROLL WEARERS OF THE LETTER High intellectual attainment has always been one of the basic pillars upon which the Agnes Scott ideals rest. An avowed purpose of both the faculty and the stu- dents was to promote and maintain the high standard of scholarship which had been set in the past, and of which we were justly proud. Those students who. by their scholastic achievement warranted membership on the Honor Roll, were named Agnes Scott ' s repre- sentatives of the ideal of high intellectual attainment. The Letter Wearers were those girls who devoted their time and effort to participating in the college athletic program and who. as they did. demonstrated athletic skill and good sportsmanship. They went far towards representing Agnes Scott ' s third ideal, physical well-being. Their awards were granted on the basis of points earned for participation and leadership in both team and individual sports, a letter representing a total of eighty points and each star, an additional forty points.

BIBLE CLUB CHI BETA PHI It took more than a little rain to dampen the spirits of the Nevvvo-Classics, the brand-new members of Eta Sigma Phi; so, changing from tcgas to slickers they went to the home of Miss Click, sponsor of the classics fraternity, and celebrated their fall initiation with an indoor picnic. This was the beginning of their year of bi-weekly meetings at which the members presented programs on Greek mythology. Burin ' s Spring quarter members of the group represented Agnes Scott ' s chapter at the national ES convention, and then returned to plav hostesses to a visiting scholar of classical laTiguaaes. Chi Beta Phi started the year according to tradition by initiating their 4 new members at a banquet at the Plantation House. After this the new members joined the old ones in their bi-weekly meetings. The year ' s programs included Agnes Scott " s Dr. Roberts, several students. Dr. Ritter from Tech speaking about electronic computers, and a series of lectures presented by Emory ' s Pharmacology Department. These pro- grams, as well as various films, were shared with the college community throughout the year.

There were five branches of Student Government, each branch TulfiUing an important function. Representative Council, consisting of presidents of all organization, editors of publications, and chairmen of key commiltees. initiated and passed policies of campus-wide concern. This group also discussed com- munity problems and co-ordinated community activi- ties. Administrative Council, consisting of members of Rep Council and representatives from the administration, including the President, Dean of Faculty, and Dean of Students, served as an advisory committee. The members of Executive Committee were dorm and cottage presidents. This group was presided over by the vice-president of Student Government. It ' s purpose was always to strive to improve community life, and to keep the regulations reasonable, purposeful, and up-to-date. Exec, also heard and passed judgment on cases of rule infraction. Their meetings were open and visitors were welcome.

LOWER HOUSE Lower House, perhaps the most representative group on campus, functioned as the campus service organ- ization. The purpose of Lower House was to connect more closely the Student Government with the student body. Some of the duties of Lower House were being responsible for phone and coke co-op, fire drills, the second-hand book-store, and concert-ticket exchange. Some of this year ' s special projects were the purchase of utensils for the kitchens in the Hub and Hopkins, and the redecoration of the Exec Room. Lower House also served as the NSA committee on campus. We at Agnes Scott were proud of our vital and active Student Government Association.

FOLIO BOZ was the creative prose writing club for upper- classmen. Although the group ' s full name was a secret, there were many facts that were generally known about the organization. Members were selected from inter- ested students who submitted tryouts in the fall and in the spring. At the regular club meetings they con- structively criticised each others ' writing. As the group was purposely kept small, each person had an oppor- tunity to read some of her work to the group at least once a quarter. Folio was the organization which stimulated creative writing among the freshmen and gave them an oppor- tunity to share their work with others. The members, selected by tryout. gained experience in criticising each others ' writing and benefitted from the sugges- tions that they received about their own work. At the end of the year the club published a magazine called Folio, containing selected writings of its members. In February Folio members had the privilege of meeting with BOZ to hear Robert Frost.

Anne McCurdy, Caroly BIBLE CLUB The Bible Club was composed of a group of students who were interested in learning more about the Bible and related topics to supplement their classroom stud- ies. The organization aimed to provide better Chris- tian leadership by wider and deeper knowledge of the Bible. At times the group invited outside speakers but most meetings were devoted to the sharing of research done by the individual members. A study of the beliefs of religious groups outside Protestantism and a discus- sion of selected section of the Bible were held during the year. ORCHESTRA The Orchestra, conducted by Mr. Adams, was com- posed of interested Agnes Scott students and several pupils from Atlanta high schools. During the early part of the year, members practiced with a group of musicians from Emory University. The Orchestra played for the Blackfriars production. " The Would-Be Gentleman. " and for May Day.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB The International Relations Club was organized in 1954 to focus campus attention on international af- fairs by sponsoring an International Festival which was held in the spring with the cooperation of Chris- tian Association and international interest groups in Atlanta. Another I.R.C. project was the annual Miss News Week Contest to find the girl who most fre- quently read the paper. MAY DAY COMMITTEE The May Day Festival was produced by the May Day Committee and by Miss Eugenie Dozier in cooperation with the departments of physical education, drama, art, and music.

Spanish Club members gained proficiency in the lan- guage and its literature through the study of songs, plays, and poems, and by conversing in Spanish. Guest speakers also made valuable contributions to the pro- grams. FRENCH CLUB The aim of the French Club was to stimulate a deeper understanding of the French language, literature and culture. To carry out this aim, French Club members met once a month to study French music, art. family traditions, and contemporary problems. Their under- standing was enriched by a carefully selected group of guest speakers. French Club Members: Suiie Ware. Joyce Thomas.

Fall quarter was a busy one for the group. On Nov. 3. an acting workshop was held, then later in the month Blackfriars presented " The Antigone " of Sophocles. Before the quarter was over the organization held a theater party to hear Cornelia Otis Skinner. Winter quarter activities began with Blackfriars 40th Anniversary Party. Members of the organization since 1916 took part in the program, and Miss Lillian Gooch gave a talk about the founding days of Blackfriars. Club activities continued as mem- bers worked on student-directed one-act plays. These plays, " The Intruder " and " Queens of France, " were presented to the campus communitv on February 9. and gave opportunities for growth in acting and di- recting. Spring quarter Blackfriars presented Moliere ' s " Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme. " under the direction of Barbara Battle and Miss Winter. This quarter was also marked by tryouts for memberships for the technical and acting staffs. These involved either acting or some form of backstage work, such as props, costumes, or make-up. At the end of the quarter new members were announced. Acting awards for the year were presented at the spring quarter play, going to Joanne Miklas and Nancy Kimmell.

Monthly meetings were held for music students and for other members of the college community who were interested in learning about great composers and in listening to their works. The students themselves presented ex- amples of various kinds of music for their programs. ORGAN GUILD The Organ Guild, composed of organ students, is a branch of the Georgia Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. The group meets, weekly for discussions and for performances by its members. When Jean Langlais. a famous contemporary French organist, visited Atlanta in the winter, six students plaved for him in a master class.

HOCKEY Intramurals got off to a fast start with the hockey season inaugurated by a bonfire pep rally led by man- ager Judy Nash. Bruised shins and aching muscles for players and candied apples for spectators became the order of the day as class teams settled down to a six game schedule. The mighty sophomores led the way with only one tie blemishing an otherwise perfect rec- ord while the senior team grabbed second honors. An extra attraction was a hockey playday with other Geor- gia colleges. Outstanding players were honored with selection to the varsity and the coveted sportsmanship award went to Martha Meyer.

Under leadership of B. C. Regen, these Scotties studied the fine techniques of showmanship. Weekly riflery classes at Decatur high school were scheduled by manager Libby Hanson for all gun-toters. Frances Patterson grabbed high scoring honors for the year. Bicycling continued as the favorite " unorganized " sport when balmy fall and spring days lured bookworms to the outdoors.

BASKETBALL Cold weather failed to daunt the Scotties as sportsters moved indoors for the winter quarter basketball sea- son. For the second year, " A " and " B " teams played separate schedules. Well-balanced scoring, last minute goals to eke out victory and aggressive play character- ized the games which were unusually spirited despite poor spectator attendance. Awards time found the Sophomore A and Freshmen B teams on top with the Seniors and Sophs taking second place respectively. Basketball manager Martha Meyer announced varsity and sub-varsity choices and awarded the sportsmanship medal to Dora Wilkinson. Potseason play found ASC defeating Brenau College. 3.3-30.

" These words became a part of the Scottie vocabulary for the first time this year as the physical education depart- ment added fencing to its curriculum. Directed by Dusty Boyce, the fencing class worked on techniques and strategy to perfect their talent in the art of defense. Highlight of their accomplishments was a television demonstration by Barbara Battle, Nancy Kimmel and Dusty. Ping pong rated high on the list of unorganized recre- ation. The tables in Rebekah were rarely vacant, even at night ( especially when there were boys around ! ) The annual ping pong tournament was held spring quarter with a large participation. Badminton claimed honors as the top individual sport for winter quarter. Under the direction of manager Ces Rudisill, two tournaments were held. Junior Anne McKelvie defeated classmate Jo Ann Beasley in the singles finals and then teamed with Helen Hendry to defeat Joanne Miklas and Louisa Allen for the doubles trophy. The most skillful players gained membership in the badminton club which held monthly meetings for both recreation and practice. Highlight for the club was a faculty-student contest. Tumbling classes, taught by Dusty Boyce, were also a popular winter activity. Climaxing weeks of practice, the tumblers gave an ex- hibition which included everything from forward rolls to pyramids.

In this affair, the brawn and finesse of such male stars as pitcher W. J. Frierson and slugger P. J.

TENNIS SHUFFLEBOARD Tennis retained its high rating on sports activity lists for the fall and spring quarters, while some of the more hardy enthusiasts practiced during the warmer days of winter quarter. The fall singles tourney was marked by unusually skilled play, climaxed by an exciting finals match in which sophomore Anna Avil edged classmate Judy Nash. To maintain campus interest, the Tennis club composed of the better players held bi-weekly meetings to advance skills and con- ducted a ladder-type tournament among the members. Under the leadership of manager Marijke Schepman and president Judy Nash, members also officiated for matches in both the singles tournament and doubles event which was held during spring quarter. After a successful indoor season during winter quarter, volleyball was moved outdoors during spring. In March, a match between the freshmen and sophomore volleyball classes resulted in a double win for the sophs. Warm weather and late sunsets gave time for after-dinner recreation in the informal manner. Judy Nash and Anna Avil, tennis singles finalists (above, top), adjust the net before the final match. lass managers (above, middle} were responsible for enlisting tourna- ent entrants.

DOLPHIN CLUB ■ reienti f- aiiaort One of the most active athletic organizations on campus was the Dolphin club. Membership in this group represented the epitome to A.S.C. swimming ability. The swimmers, under the direction of Dusty Boyce, began practicing early in the fall for the annual ballet which was given in February. The year ' s production, ' " Passport. " was one of the most elaborate ever at- tempted and its success can be measured by the packed house which viewed both performances. Based on an international theme, the ballet was presented in the form of a world tour, beginning in the United States and finally returning to Dixie after visiting Hawaii, the Orient, Austria. Luxembourg, Spain, France, Poland and Britain. Highlight of the program was " Habenara, " a Spanish solo by club president Alice Ann Klostermeyer. Other numbers, each executed with precision, included duets, trios and larger groups. Original costumes added sparkle while international students acting as ushers helped to maintain the atmos- phere. A skit depicting a prospective voyager ' s ques- tions to a travel agent added unity to the performance. Special colored lighting and a modernistic backdrop added finishing touches to the production. During spring quarter, the Dolphins added a new project — teaching swimming to crippled children at Emory.

DANCE GROUP cd.a iOoiirique antaique The dance group, under the direction of Miss Eugenie Dozier, plays an integral role in the physical education department. Formed for the purpose of providing specialized dance instruction, the group studied both classical and modern ballet at their weekly practices. Climax of the year was the annual ballet presented in February. For the production, the members chose a three act ballet en titled " La Boutique Fantasque. " Starring Nancy Trowell and Louisa Allen, the story centered around the proposed purchase of two toyshop can-can dolls by different families and the efforts of the other toys to prevent the separation. Artistic and lively interpretation of the dances was indicative of the talent possessed by the group which did its own choreography under the leadership of chairman Ann Wilson. Original costumes and scenery depicting an early twentieth century toy shop provided finishing touches for the near-professional production. By spring quarter the dancers, headed by Carlanna Lindamood, were already laying plans for next year ' s ballet. . THE CALENDAR Judy Watson ' s main ir but in addition to th interests as modeling, rest was her husband, she had such varied sicing, ice-skating, and dancing. Judy was on the May Court for three years and this year was Junior Jaunt Queen and May Day Queen. She was president of Dance Group, having held the lead in the Dance production for two years, and had been May Day dance chairman for two years. SEPTEMBER September! At Agnes Scott September means old faces and new faces, but all happy faces. The returning students kept repeating: " It feels so good to be back, " " Look, they ' ve started the new dorm. " and most of all, " Oh, isn " t it wonderful! " It seemed there had never been so many freshmen, millions and millions of freshmen. But to the freshmen themselves it seemed as though nothing as wonderful had ever happened before. One thrilling afternoon. Christian Association gave a picnic just for them. What was it that had changed their lives so much? September at Agnes Scott!! There were teas, parties, orientation lectures, junior sponsors, sophomore helpers. It was always " run, run, run, HURRY, you ' ve just got time to see Miss Scandrett! " Do you remember the night you pulled out your hoop skirt, and in a cloud of net you were running again — to the lormal Reception? Oh, so that ' s what that teacher looks like! " What were those Seniors talking about? It sounded like, " The freshmen are wonderful! " ' Georgia Tech invited you to their football game against Miami and you entertained them with a dance. Remember the bov vou met and the fun you had at the rush partv at Emory? Remember September? ou didn ' t know that college could be so much fun and some of the upperclassmen had for- gotten. September was a month of discovery and redis- covery. Do you remember the walk you took one Sunday afternoon and found that Decatur ' s trees were just as beautiful as Virginia ' s, or Maine ' s, or Missis- sippi ' s? " Hey. Hey. Hey Nancy. Hev Sally. Hey Joan, Hey Sue! " Who won the grand award at Hey Day, was it you? " AH Presbyterians go to the reception room in Rebekah! " — ou went to Meet the Ministers. " Dear Mother. Agnes Scott is the best school in the whole world. " The clubs, clubs, clubs, and the meet- ings, meetings, meetings, began to catch up with vou. " I think I ' m lost! " Hockey practice began and the many books in your arms got all mixed up in the caramel apple. The new lobby in Buttrick glistened brightly and everyone was impressed and proud. The greatest discovery of all came to the freshmen, who found that everyone at Agnes Scott is " a part, and not apart. " ' Anne Welborn, a senior from Tri on, Georgia, was a Bible maior and a leader in Student Government activities, being Vice-President this year and Treasurer the year before. Sports were her favorite hobby. She was a wearer of the letter, a member of the varsity hockey team and class teams in hockey, basketball, and Softball. OCTOBER October turned talk of Black Cat into a reality as the " streamlined feline " himself appeared on campus to honor the freshmen. He held a sweepstakes in the afternoon, and a supper on the athletic field. The sophomores won the song contest just before the Three Little Kittens found that the spirit of the Black Cat was in the freshman dorm. The exciting day ended with a dance in Rebekah as the black kitty was made an official member of the freshman class. Athletic Association sponsored a " Fishical Feminary. " the Saddle Club, the Archery Grab Bag. and the Golf Day competition. There was a hockey bonfire to make sure that all the classes kept up their high spirits through the hockey season. The tennis singles tourna- ment was another subject for excitement. You were so busy with activities that you almost missed Randall Jarrell, sponsored by Lecture Association. He spoke on the " Taste of the Age " and agreed to judge a poetry contest sponsored by Aurora. Do you re- member Honor Emphasis week and the convocation speeches by Mrs. Sims, Sarah Davis, and Randy Norton? There were Lower House elections and Athletic Association sponsored a square dance for the freshmen. Remember going to Decatur to shop for Dek-It and those silly curtains you bought but had to take back? Doreen Greenfield and Dale Dick won top honors with their pale blue room and a mural called " Pagan Magic. " The University Center brought Dr. Brand Blanshard from Yale to speak on a subject close to home, " On Being Reasonable. " ' The bingo party sponsored by Social Committee brightened up the Hub and you were glad to take a few minutes of rest from some urgent paper due on Monday, or the terrible pains of " get ready, here come the six weeks tests. " " Dear Daddy, couldn ' t you raise my allowance, now that I ' ve been at school a whole month? " The All Star Concert Series and the Atlanta Symphony, along with Mortar Board ' s movie, " Room for One More, " provided entertainment on those nights when it was just too much to have to study. You climbed stairs and stairs to see the display of oriental wood block prints in the third floor gallery. It was so good that you went back the next week to see the Art Faculty ' s display, along with the interesting exhibition in the library of paintings by each of the artists who have taught at Agnes Scott since 1900. A delegate from National Student Association, Ray Farabee, vis- ited our campus. It was fun to have a new man on campus, even if it was just for one day. The rush parties at Emory and Tech were over, but you felt as though you had been some help to the " best fraternity " and you were still rushing to parties of a different sort. Football games and dances in Atlanta took up almost all of the weekends, with the exception of the marve- lous trips to North Carolina, Duke, Auburn, Washing- ton and Lee, and perhaps, best of all Annapolis. Those that found a minute to sit and gaze out the window some drowsy afternoon found that Agnes Scott was still as amazing as it had been the day they arrived, and even though some of the newness was beginning to wear off, there were a million mysteries underneath that were beckoning to be found. As the freshman pounded her sparkling new typewriter or the senior dreamed of Investiture and " really becoming, " October gave Agnes Scott one last look at her red and golden dress as she twirled in splendor and disappeared behind the tower of Main. Bettye Carmlchael, a senior from McDonough, Geor- gia, was a Spanish major and the president of the Spanish Club. All sports interested her, but her favorite was swimming. Graduation brought her a B.A. and a MRS. NOVEMBER November came, wearing a dress that was just like October ' s except that there were more splashes of brown and less of green. The seniors had been looking forward to Investiture with such longing that it is no wonder they let their pent up emotions pour en- thusias tically into the merriment of Little Girls Day, their last fling amid the frivolities of lower classmen. Agnes Scott was invaded with cowboys looking for their indians. giggling-gurgling moppets who pounded fellow students with their teddy bears, plus the sailors, the lollipop lickers and the get-em-in-the-eye water gun squirters. Even the seniors themselves were sur- prised W ' hen several teachers pulled out suckers or chased the amazed students around the room with a stick. When Miss Scandrett capped them the next day, the whole student body was amazed because they seemed to have changed over night. Did you ever get that bubble gum out of your hair? Another highlight was Blackfriar ' s presentation for the Fall quarter, " Antigone " by Sophocles. If you happened to have forgotten " Antigone " from your 101 course, you were soon reminded by all the posters, newspaper articles, and the special chapel program. Some of the speech classes also went around to all the English 101 classes and explained the play and aspects of Greek drama because the freshmen didn ' t get to the plav until Spring quarter. The production was very impressive, and as Miss Winter said the night of the performance, " It ' s the largest audience since " Ladv Windemere ' s Fan. ' " Besides fitting this play into your schedule, you found time for the librarv tea. the exciting hockey games, and the archery tournament won bv Caro McDonald for the sophomores. Rifiery also appeared on the Athletic Association scene and Agnes Scott became a part of the National Riflerv Association. You screamed and yelled so hard the night of the swimming meet that you almost lost your voice. The sophomores again swam away with the cup and 49 points. Our own Mr. Warren was given an award of merit at the formal opening of the Atlanta Water Color Club ' s annual exhibit. His painting was " Shells of the Sea " and some of his other works were also chosen for an exhibition at the Regional Art Gallery. The speakers during November were outstanding. Senora Maria de Leon Ortega of Mexico City returned to our campus to spend six weeks teaching Spanish. Her songs in chapel and at the party were the highlight of her visit for those who weren ' t taking Spanish. You hoped that Ralph McGill would soon return and Colonel Francis Pickens Miller was very interesting as he spoke on Christian Citizenship. Folio, the freshman literary club, chose its new members, and the freshman class also elected its officers for the year: Libby Hanna, Patti Forrest, and Katherine Jo Freeman. You were entertained again by Mortar Board as they brought " Green Pastures " to the science hall screen. The Atlanta Symphony starred Beverly Wolff and David Lloyd, while the All-Star series presented the " Ballet Espagnols. " The Emory Chamber Music Series held attractions for many when it began its sixth annual season with the celebrated pianist Rudolf Firkusny. You found yourself in that hoop skirt again as you whirled around the floor at Cotil- lion ' s first formal dance of the year, the " College Hop. " This dance was just another way of say- ing. " Freshmen, we think you ' re great! " The Thanksgiving holi- days gave you just the needed time to catch up on all the things you had waited to do " until. " and the most popular activity was sleep. A few of the braver ones danced holes in their stockings at Clemson. Tech. Emory, Auburn, Duke, Vir- ginia, and Sewanee. You decided that holidays were just the things to keep King around in case vou happen to need one. You just had time to get back to school and dust the worms out of your books be- fore you suddenly looked up and found that November had slipped right out the door, taking her wor- ries and wonders and leaving you with only the memories of Novem- ber at Agnes Scott. Frances Cork, a junior from Talladega, Alabama, chose an art major which she originally meant to use in advertising, but her plans have been changed by her approaching marriage, and she will now put it to work In decorating her home. Frances enjoys waterskiing and visiting art galleries. DECEMBER Changing costumes, December came bright, crisp, and snappy. She dashed across the quadrangle and sang Christmas carols through the windows of all the dorms and cottages. She blew and swirled, confusing the thermometers and northern new-comers. But with all her mischief and fun, she brought no snow to Agnes Scott. You hardly missed it though, for you were much too busy getting ready for exams and the holidays. Somehow you found time to fit the All-Star Concert and Jussi Bjoerling into your schedule. Everyone also attended the Glee Club ' s Christmas Concert. You joined in singing the beautiful familiar Christmas carols and listened intently as Vee Williamson sang the solo lead in the ' " Magnificat. " Within a few days, there were a few who managed to find lime for the Atlanta Symphony ' s presentation of Handel ' s " Mes- siah. " There was a great deal of excitement in con- vocation the morning Dr. Alston announced the ten members of the Senior class who had Ijeen chosen for Who ' s Who. Congratulations were in order for: Guerry Fain, Louisa Allen, Nonette Brown, Harriet Griffin, Barbara Battle, Sarah Davis, Jane Stubbs, Anne Welborn, Louise Rainey, and Eleanor Swain. Mr. Stan Glass, NSA representative, was on campus to discuss plans for the forthcoming NSA meeting on segregation. Dr. Posey flew to Birmingham-Southern College to receive an honorary Doctor of Humanities degree. Another delightful evening was presented to the community by Pi Alpha Phi. They entertained Cambridge Lniversity ' s debate team in Presser Hall. Sallie Greenfield and Joanne Miklas joined forces against John ork and Kenneth Post. " Resolved: That non-agricultural industries should guarantee their employees an annual minimum wage. " Cambridge took the affirmative, Agnes Scott, the negative. The entire campus gathered in the Hub on December 11th, to celebrate together at the annual Christmas party. Every class was also busy making all sorts of unusual decorations for the Christmas Tree Project at Henry Grady. Each class had two trees to make ornaments for, and day students decorated them during the holidays. The Junior class won first place with their pink and silver tree. Although the weather was a little brisk for a lot of outdoors activity. Athletic Asso- ciatioii had a busy schedule. The Sophomore class won the hockey trophy with a total of 5 wins. 1 tie. and losses. One freezing afternoon a shivering bunch of spectators watched Anna Avil defeat Judy Nash in the singles tennis championship. The A. A. awards were given in chapel as twelve students received either stars or letters. The sportsmanship award for the fall season went to Martha Meyer. Thirteen members were also chosen for the Hockey varsity. B.O.Z. welcomed four new members and Cotillion chose twenty-one. There was one last fling at Tech and Emory before the terrible week of exams began. There were very few Scotties who didn t take advantage of the host of Christmas parties. A few made plans to make the Sugar Bowl along with the ellow Jackets and the rest settled down to concentrate on some mathematical situation until that delightful Thursday that meant " Let ' s go home for fruit cake! " Each person took her own December home with her for Christmas, and Agnes Scott was briefly forgotten beneath the mistletoe. Amid the confetti, paper hats, and noisy horns on New Year ' s Eve, a very tired December and a very old year wandered slowly out together, completely unnoticed if not forgotten. Emasue Alford. a talented sophomore from Palmetto, Georgia, was a music ma- jor and took part in the activities of Co- tillion Club, Music Club, and Glee Club. Emasue was sophomore Junior Jaunt Queen, and a member of the May Court in ' 55 and ' 56. She loved to work with children and in the line of sports en- joyed horseback riding and tennis. JANUARY The first month of a bra nd new year was sparkling fresh and full of enthusiasm as you came back to school on January .3rd to begin again. There were so many new activities and jobs to be done, that you had to choose carefully, for no one was able to do them all. You had your choice in most things, but after you had heard Margaret Mead speak on " Shifting Gears in Mid-Twentieth Century, " you were glad you had been required to go. She was certainly an unusually delight- ful personality. The Ninth Annual All-Southern Inter- collegiate Debate Tournament was held on campus just early enough to avoid running into Suppressed Desires Day. Dr. Hayes was the darling of the student body in his oxford grey slacks and bright red cashmere sweater. " College George " stole the show, surrounded by a roudy 211 class armed with confetti, horns, and stream- ers. The faculty was shocked into departing and the most conmion cry was " CENSORS. " The next high- light on the calendar was Junior Jaunt. The theme was " Encore, " which featured the re-enactment of scenes from several Broadway musicals, the class skits taken from shows that had once been on Broadway, and the crowning of the queen from the class that raised the most money in the charity drive. Penny Smith crowned Judy Watson of the senior class and the sophomores won the skit contest with a silent, black and white take off on the old movie. " Anthony and Cleopatra. " The freshmen surprised everyone bv earning over a thou- sand dollars, one-third of all the money raised. Gloria Calhoun and Sara Townsend were highlights of the evening with their interpretation of scrubwomen and Shakespeare. The seniors and engaged students began attending Wednesday afternoon marriage classes. The first speaker was Mrs. J. K. Fancher who spoke on " " How to Become Marriageable. " This series of lectures was sponsored by Mortar Board. Agnes Scott received ( a grant of $285,300 from the Ford Foundation. The money was given to the endowment fund of the College and will be used to increase faculty salaries. Black- friars held their fortieth anniversary party in the rec- reation hall of Rebekah. Each member of Blackfriars was assigned two or three alumnae to watch over dur- ing the evening and to explain the many exhibits of programs, clippings, and production scrapbooks. The alumnae themselves took part in the program, giving selections from plays they had been in. The most popu- lar subject of conversation was Agnes Scott ' s first dra- matic presentation. " Midsummer Night ' s Dream. " But January ' s greatest gift to Agnes Scott was the return of our beloved Robert Frost on January 26. He brought along ivith him some delightful new poems wh ' ch seemed to offset the fact that his hair seemed a little thinner and his voice a little softer. He spoke to a crowded auditorium in Presser and then later to a smaller group of Folio and B.O.Z. members in Hop- kins. He dined with English majors and the Alstons, made his usual rounds of the campus, attending lunch- eons and dinners in his honor. January seemed to be Robert Frost himself as he captured us once again in his magic spell. The month was hurried out with Ca- reer Coffees, the visit of Henri Peyre. basketball games, badminton tournaments, and the new fencing class, but the spell of Robert Frost lingered over us all as Febru- ary rounded the windy corner. Cemele Miller, a pretty art major from Monroe, Georgia, was especially inter- ested in interior decorating. She com- bined her interest in art with her love for working with people in her sunnmer job of camp counselor. Cemele, a member of the May Court In ' 54 and ' 55, and Sopho- more Queen of Junior Jaunt, was a mem- ber of Cotillion Club, sang in her church choir, and did social work. With January gone, February immediately began bang- ing on doors and ratting windows, demanding some recognition. Although it is supposed to be the shortest month in the year, it was one of the longest at Agnes Scott. As though they had nothing else to do all year long but work on their program. Dance Group pre- sented a polished and colorful ballet called " La Bou- tique Fantasque. " The story was of a pair of can-can dolls. Louisa Allen and Nancy Trowell. who were sep- arated as they were sold to different families. Two of the cutest performers were Jackie Murray and Libby Gay as the poodles. ou were also amazed by how much the day student room had changed since they had begun the ir re-decorating program. They held an open house to show off the new brown walls, yellow curtains, and modern furniture. Religious Emphasis week was a highlight of middle February and you en- joyed the evening conferences in the Hub very much. Dr. Henderlite was a very interesting person and you were glad to welcome home another alumnae. Black- friars presented two one-act plays, directed bv Eleanor FEBRUARY Swain and Vannie Traylor. They provided a wonderful evening of entertainment with " Queens of France, " a comedy, and " The fntruder, " a mystery by Maurice Maeterlick. The Emory Chamber Music Series pre- sented Robert Shaw, our debaters captured the honors at the West Georgia Debate Tournament in Carrollton, Mr. George de Twenebrokes Glazebrook of Canada spoke in Convocation, followed by Dr. Achille Deo- dato. moderator of the Waldensian General Assembly and president of the Federal Council of Evangelical Churches in Italy. Mr. Warren won another honor, first prize in the watercolor section of the 27th annual exhibition of the Association of Georgia Artists held at the Georgia Museum of Art in Athens. Since Athletic Association had been forced indoors because of the cold weather, the basketball games were top contenders for the attention of those with athletic eyes. The sopho- mores came out in first place in the tournament, fol- lowed by the freshmen in second place. Junior Anne McKelvie defeated Jo Ann Beasley for the singles bad- minton crown. Miss Boyce and Mrs. Lapp attended a Physical Education conference in Nashville. Tennessee. The May Day room was redec- orated and the basketball varsity members were chosen. Ten varsity members and six sub-varsity members were selected. Found- ers Day gave you just the right amount of time to catch upon that needed sleep and perhaps to take in " Teahouse of the August Moon " at the Tower theater. One of the most delightful dramatic presentations ever to be held at Agnes Scott was brought by Lecture Association. They featured Play- ers. Incorporated, a repertory group spon- sored by Catholic Lniversity in Washing- ton. D. C. The brilliant wit and high humor of Beatrice and Benedict will never lie forgotten. Don John was the perfect illain, down to his long stemmed rose and jeweled dagger. Another wonderful evening « as provided by Dolphin Club. As Scotties look down their pink and red ruffled paper hearts from walls and bulletin boards, thev noticed a sudden change in the atmosphere and heard a distant lion ' s roar. February fled at the sound, leaving vou alone with only sixteen more davs until Spring Vaca- tions. MARCH Although you had heard the lion ' s roar, you were quite surprised when March showed her face. She came in calm and soft, leading her precious little lamb. She was really fooling you though, for the lamb soon ran away from the hiding lion, the beautiful weather dis- appeared, and the rains came. It didn ' t stay warm long either, for cold weather came with the rain as you got ready for exams. There were the usual reviews and long studious afternoons that ended in that delightful final Thursday and Spring Vacations. They were short, but wonderful. You took all your winter clothes home so you could bring back your cottons. It was fun get- ting ready for spring and trying to get just enough sun to pretend you had been to the beach. Then you hurried back to Agnes Scott, only to find that it was still March and a little too cold for your summer ward- robe. It was lucky you had saved a blanket or two for the late frosts. But March finally had to give in as the impatient spring took over her debut month. Classes seemed so much longer with the beautiful sunshine out- side, but were were busy trying to plan your courses Sis Burns, a junior from Knoxyille, Ten- nessee, was Chairman of Lower House in I955-I95 . During her senior year she will head Mortar Board. She is a Bible major and a keen tennis player. for next year, this summer, or perhaps graduation and a wedding in late June. Elections were important too. and you took time out to attend the Tumbling and Fencing demonstration in chapel. During Holy Week there were special morning watch ceremonies on the Infirmary lawn. Rev. Robert E. Lee spoke to you in a special Holy Week chapel on " What the Cross Means to God. " Dr. Mack B. Stokes of the Candler School of Theology at Emory continued the series at Convocation when he spoke on " What the Cross Means to the In- dividual. " Dr. Alston concluded the speeches with " What the Cross Means to the World. " On Good Fri- day there was a special meditation, led by Nancy Hol- land, and the Decatur Presbyterian Church held a Community Good Friday service, featuring Gounod ' s " Gallia. " sung by the Decatur Women ' s Chorus. To coincide with the weather and the high spirits, Athletic Association encouraged badminton, volleyball, golf, riding, and especially baseball. The classes began prac- ticing for the tournament. Tennis also came back into the foreground after a cold winter, and the life saving course was an attractive feature in the basement of the gym. Blackfriars announced that it was opening its technical tryouts to freshmen as well as upper-class- men. Twenty-five students immediately began hammer- ing and sawing in the basement of Presser. building scenery for the spring play. They made quite a bit of competition for organ students and recital practices. Music poured out of Presser as windows were flung open to let in the warm spring air. There were never enough bicycles to be had for afternoon rides, go you took to your hiking shoes to enjoy the dogwood in Decatur. You sailed into town to do your shopping and pick .ml jii-l llic right hat for Atlanta ' s famous Easter Parade. It was hard to settle down and to realize that you were actually in the last spring quarter, but somehow you managed. The lion in March turned out to be just the nudge you needed to get back on the right path again, and by the time the soft little lamb returned you had been steeled to stay awa from temp- tation. One bright afternoon you stopped on the way back to your room, and turned, as if to give turbulent March a pat on the back, but you suddenly found she had tricked you again. She left without even saying goodbye, in a rush of soft breezes and the perfume of the violets near Buttrick Hall. APRIL IT RAINED! It rained ami it rained! Bultritl " s luiihy was paved in the tliousands of multicolored umbrellas that sprouted suddenly in the wake of dark and heavy laden clouds. First prize went to the chocolate colored one with all the pink ruffles. But following the rain and umbrella clouds came the beautiful April skies and brilliant afternoons, fresh sparkling grass, and the most fantastic dogwood in Atlanta. It looked as though our tree beside Presser was trying to take all the attention away from an activity filled month at school. It didn ' t quite succeed though, for everything seemed to have been very well attended. On the first Monday of the month, the entire student body tumbled into Gaines to elect Penny Smith president of Student Government. Margie Dei ' ord was elected to head Christian Associa- tion and Carolyn Herman top girl on the Athletic Asso- ciation roster. The rest of the elections ran smoothly and the campus had a new set of leaders by Friday afternoon. The sophomores were exceedingly ingenious in their decorations for the annual sophomore dance. They had a carousel that actually went round and round. The band from Emory was so glad to come. they plaved on till twelve-thirty and the Techniques from Georgia Tech were an added attraction during intermission. Miss Leyburn introduced the Phi Beta Kappa speaker, Dr. Charles Hartshorne, professor of philosophy at Emory. The new Phi Bete ' s were: Ann Alvis, Priscilla Bennett, Memye Curtis, Guerry Fain, June Gaissert, Peggy Mayfield, Betty Richardson, Sally Shippey, Joan ne Smith T. Jane Stubbs, Nancy Thomas, and Vera Williamson. The 102 Agnes Scott girls who participated in the Multiple Sclerosis drive collected over .S10.53 in their Sunday afternoon campaign, and Archer Boswell was awarded the trophy as best col- bctor. Blackfriars presented " The Would-Be Gentle- man ' on Friday, the thirteenth, but it proved to be a lucky day for this dramatic group. Moliere ' s play was elaborately and skillfully done. After the performance, JoAnne Miklas was awarded the Claude S. Bennett trophy as best actress of the year. Nancy Kinmiel got the award as best supporting actress. Memye Curtis presented a lecture in Maclean as a climax for her independent study program. Her subject was Shavian heroines and the recital consisted of excerpts from RunHa McCurdy, a freshman from San Antonio, Texas, was interested in sports and music. Her good sportsmanship and athletic skill merited her a position on the sub-varsity hoclcey team, and the class managership of badminton and vol- leyball. In the music field, she played both the violin and the piano. Although Runita had not chosen her major yet, her favorite subjects were history and French. 122 " Caesar and Cleopatra. " F jimalion, " and " Saint Joan. " Rameth Richard. Louise Rainey, and Alice Johnson presented a joint organ recital, while Peggy Mayfield gave her senior piano recital. A. A. held a skating party at the Figure Eight Ice Rink at Lake- wood. Softball games held everyone ' s attention on Fri- day afternoon and the tennis club held their Spring quarter tryouts as the doubles tournament got under way. Mortar Board sponsored a leadership conference and all the clubs began to hold their tryouts for the coming vear. There were also a multitude of farewell jiarlirs and rclcbartinns. Miss Preston won a prize for her poem " " To the Patron Saints ol iiiinal . besides having another published. The juniors kept in the spring spirit at their banquet, called " " Blossom Time. " They decorated with pink and white dogwood trees, white picket fences, ivy on trellises, green grass, and park benches in front of a beautiful lake and glowing moon. The dinner was wonderful; the dance was bet- ter. Rose buds began to show their color as April began to get rather uneasy. She was gone before there was any time to miss her, and seniors found there was verv little time left at Agnes Scott. Mary Mayne Wilson, a (reshman from Knoxville, Terressee, was one of the campus " redheads. " She was Junior Jaunt Queen for her class this year. Reading and swimming were her favorite hobbies. She was also interested in dra- matics. During the summer she enjoyed typing briefs and wills in her father ' s law office. MAY As the white and pink dogwood, the delicious hyacinths, and vibrant azaleas faded from the campus to make way for fresh green leaves, the maiden May filled the heart of Agnes Scott with her bursting spirit. She poured into the dormitories and cottages, even took a blowing twirl through Walters. She tempted students to wander aimlessly across the green grass and leave their books behind. She challenged souls to duels at Venetian and Pine Lake, and sometimes she won, but. more of;en, lost. Sunbathers appeared on the roof of Rebekah and Inman ' s porch. Students in the phys. ed. classes gained tans around the collar and only half way up the thigh, as they frolicked on the tennis courts or hit a homer in softball. Even the archery classes just gave up on several afternoons to lake hikes through Decatur to see how many roses were out. Opera Season came to Atlanta from New York, bringing with it some of the world ' s most famous stars and performances. Scotties dressed up and out to attend the gala performances of Offenbach ' s " Tales of Hoffman. " and Wagner ' s " Die Meistersinger, " along with many of the popular favorites. Barbara Battle ' s May Day thrilled the lady May beyond measure. Meniye Curtis had written the scenerio, built around the traditional " Comedia del Arte " theme. Nancy Trowell danced the lead, as Harlequin, opposite the coquettish Columbina, danced by Louise Rigdon. Har- lequin had come, along with two other suitors, II Dottore, the doctor, and 11 Capitano, the soldier, to compete for the hand of the lovely Columbina. Her father. Pantalone. is against Harlequin, but the clever and charming fellow wins her hand in the end. Fol- lowing right on the heels of this production was senior opera, which began as a takeoff on opera week since it came so close behind it. Vee Williamson was in charge of the show, which they called " Here ' s a Pretty Mess. " It was a delightful combination of Gilbert and Sullivan plus William Shakespeare. Judy Brown sang the role of Juliet, Dorothy Weakley was Romeo, with Rookie Smith as the nurse, Joanne Miklas as Lord Capulet, and Jane Stubbs as Friar Lawrence. Sally Wilt, Barbara Battle, Jean Gregory, and Mary Jo Carpenter all had humorous and interesting parts. The ghost trio consisted of Jackie Plant, Rameth Richard, and Nancy Frazier. The talented and energe- tic maestro was Nancy Burkitt. Everyone was pleased with the performance and Gaines was full of laughing people. The seniors were even asked to advertise their performance on television. The rest of the month was busily spent in closing up, cleaning up, and studying up for those final exams. It seemed so hard to believe that it was already the end of such a wonderful year at Agnes Scott. Things had happened much too quickly, and you stopped every now and then to think back over the year to remember each month and what it offered. You also hur- ried to parties and tried not to say goodbye, it was too hard. You wondered when and where you would see all your friends again as May kissed you goodbye and June bowed gracefully before you. as if to say: " I will only know you a moment at Agnes Scott, but il will be a memorable one. Louise Harley, a busy senior from Colur bus. Georgia, had the big job this ye. of orientation chairman. A member ■ Dolphin Club, Louise loved to swim ar especially enjoyed water ballet. She w, cottage president her junior year, ar had served on Exec, Rep. Council, Cot lion Club, and Social Committee. H, beauty had won her many honors sue as sophomore queen for Junior Jaun and May Court for ' SB and ' 56. JUNE Although there wasn ' t much of June at Agnes Scott, to most it was the most memorable month of all. To the three underclasses, it meant the end of a full and prosperous year, not only for Agnes Scott, but for themselves in their academic career. It meant a pro- gression of busy months, full of the happy memories of working hard together at a task that would be beneficial to all in the end. It meant looking forward over the summer months of fun and relaxation to another school year as full of promise as this has been. To many it meant the privilege of coming back to Agnes Scott, but to the seniors it meant something different, something more. The seniors have four short, happy years behind them, and all the promise and rewards of a full and beneficial life away from Agnes Scott waiting for them after June. Some will get jobs, some will get married and raise families, and some may even come back to Agnes Scott to share the fruits of their life with some distant group of students; but no matter what happens to them, they have the strong background that they have built for themselves, here with you. After the final exposure to exams, the air lightened as parents and families poured onto campus. Alumnae came back to share tlie happiness of the moment with the graduating stu- dents. The Speech Department gave a special program in honor of the class of 19.56 and their families. You all met together in Gaines to worship together for the last time at Agnes Scott. There were special parties in all the dorms and cottages, packages crowded (lie niailroom and special delivery letters were not unusual. The telephones rang themselves silly trying to keep up with all the happy messages. It was sad to say goodbye to little sisters, to teachers, to the " most wonderful sponsor of all, " to the buildings that had been your home for four years. You were leaving a great deal behind, but you were taking even more with you, and that was what kept this final goodbye from being just a sad occasion. You were already making plans for your study in England next year, your job at Black Hills Public School, the color for the living room walls. You were anxious to get busy. You were prepared and enthusiastic about this new beginning. You knew you would come back to Agnes Scott; it didn ' t make too much difference if you left your place to make room for someone who needed it more, now that you had filled that need within yourself with a new one that Agnes Scott if unable to furnish. Goodbye Presser, Buttrick, and Main. Goodbye pink slips and hockey games. Good- bve Miss Scandrett, goodbye Martha, goodbye Dr. Alston. Hello world! That golden day when you received your diploma and got your tassel moved to the other side, that wonderful feeling you had when your parents smiled their pride, all these have dis- appeared within that June, but " Magnolia trees and gothic hall, the scenes that welcome us each fall. We ' ll have these moments to remember! " INDEX Abfrnethy, Margaret 62, 79. Adams, Sarah 62, 87. . (janis, Theresa 54, 100. Akerman. Anne 54, 96. Akin, Martha 46, 96, 100.
