Agnes Scott College Decatur, Georgia 30030 Editor-in-Chief: Beth Wickenberg T T E 1975 LXXII (Bab of tfye marcijtng centuries, |£oro of i t passing years, |Eeaotng a people ' s ntctortes, J ljartng a people ' s tears, — Ji?eal us as nom me morsljtp tW}ee, llere on tljts moment ' s Ijetgljt; jgtar of tlje may, our fathers founo, Pe sttll our gntotng ;Etgljt Agnes Scott — the word itself is steeped in tradition. Here, tradition has become a part of our lives. Yet, Agnes Scott is not too old for change. And change we have — not fast enough for some; too quickly for others. We are constantly trying to keep our balance in the world. A liberal arts woman ' s college is becoming rare. But Scott is one of the finest — preparing young women to cope with a world in constant flux. Yet we still are cherishing our traditions — footholds in the past. Tradition and Change — the essence of the Agnes Scott experience. i- f. ©fyattkfuiitJ ncfo ta tour age take, ptumWiJ te pkhgB our all, (31 f to ma| stvbxcz ixnb ftritl] ' SMjee, (31 f te mag Ijcar tEfyt call; IJSere fal ere fe %tt our brother ' s neefr, Bere faljere t must not Me, — Wi txz fat sipl! ftnh tEfyj feU0fast}tp ttb ftrill not pass tJJjee kg- The emphasis on the academic experience at Scott in the past year has broadened to include the Decatur community. Scotties lent their talents and their hearts to tutoring and social work, both as parts of classwork and as volunteers. Yet, plenty of opportunities for fellowship still existed on the campus. Weekly Convocations, Hub parties, and in- formal gab sessions in the dorms remained a vital part of a Scottie ' s life. Spain and Germany Summer Study Abroad, Fine Arts and Fine Wine Last year ' s Summer Study Abroad programs were spon- sored by the Spanish, Art, and German departments. Two groups from Agnes Scott participated, one going to Madrid, Spain, and the other going to Marburg, Germany. Each group studied the art, architecture and language of their respective countries. Outside the classroom they also gained an understanding and appreciation of the culture and society in which they studied. " V Below: A wine and cheese party in Marburg was attended by many of the group, including Herr Bicknese and the busdriver, Wolfgang, from the 1971 tour.

Scott ' s Orientation: Above: Students Jennifer Driscoll and Kathy Oates made use of all available help moving in. Below: Scott and Tech freshmen met at the " street dance " which was held in the cafeteria due to the threat of rain. This year Agnes Scott prepared to meet its new freshman class, for the first time in years a larger class than the year before it. Orientation Council worked hard to plan events which introduced freshmen to campus boards and activities, to men from neighboring campuses, and to the Atlanta area: Campus board parties, mixers here and at Tech and Emory, and the " Orientation packet " telling students about Agnes Scott and Atlanta. Orientation also made a special effort to in- troduce transfer students to their classes with a party given in the Hub for sophomore transfers and a party in the Alumni garden for junior transfers. Another new twist to orientation activi- ties were the Interdorm sponsored " Meet the Freshmen " parties given in the freshmen dorms to encourage upperclassmen to get to know the new class. Registration also had a " new, improved " flavor. For those who had planned well enough the spring before there was " advanced registration, " a process by mail which permitted these fortunate few to forgo meeting the scheduling committee when they returned to school. For those who did have to see the committee, quite a harrowing ex- perience for the first time, scheduling was still better than the madhouse associated with the big universities. Scheduling as well as orientation is able to retain a personalized atmosphere at Agnes Scott. Arts Council President Melissa Schuster spoke at the Freshmen " Introduction to the Arts " . Being a Person, Not Just a Number Students didn ' t have to wait long in order to register last fall Senior team member Betsy Wall " took it all off " in Black Tech men and Scotties mingled at the picnic before the street dance. Cat game competition. Freshmen " Fire-Up " with Little Hot Stuff Traditionally, Black Ca t has been Agnes Scott ' s big- gest annual campus-wide weekend. Instituted over fifty years ago, Black Cat designates the end of freshman ori- entation. Through the years activities have been added which make Black Cat on even more special occasion for the campus community. This year ' s events spanned Thursday night through Sunday afternoon. Spirit ran high as classes began competition in the cafeteria and serenading in the Quad before Black Cat ' s official kicking-off — the bonfire and pep rally in the amphithe- atre Thursday night. At the bonfire each class sang its original song twice for the judges, and the competition winners were announced the next night at the Junior Class sponsored production. The Juniors won and the Se- niors were runner ' s-up. This year ' s production was a take- off on " Camelot, " I Wonder What the Scotties Are Doing Tonight? The production was followed by folk music and candied apples in the Quad. Because of Tech ' s home game with Tulane, no picnic at Stone Mountain was planned. Instead, a Lawn Party was held Sunday after- noon, with diners in the Quad enjoying live organ music. One of the highlights of Black Cat was the dance held Saturday night at the Marriot, with the Virginia Beach group Bill Deal and the Rhondells. The problem with Black Cat? — It was over too soon, and the only thing left to look forward to was exams. Above: At the bonfire song competition took place and freshmen revealed their ma- scot — Little Hot Stuff. Left: Sophomore Cheryl Houey fits the part of Dennis the Menace, her class mascot.

Their costumes included horns, capes, and rubber pitchforks. Lectures: Bringing the Outside World In On October fifteenth and sixteenth the campus cele- brated the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Robert Frost. For this college the year marked the centennial of not only a great poet, but also a very special friend. Af- fectionately named Agnes Scott ' s " old Beau, " Mr. Frost made twenty visits here during his lifetime. Proposed by an alumna, and planned and supervised by Mrs. Pepperdene, chairman of the English department, the " Celebration of the Poet " featured five outstanding speakers. Kathleen Morrison, Mr. Frost ' s secretary and schedule planner for twenty-five years, and her husband, Theodore Morrison, noted Professor Emeritus at Harvard, reminisced about Frost the man and Frost the poet. Critic Cleanth Brooks lectured on " Nature and Human Nature in the Poetry of Robert Frost. " Dr. Wallace Alston, Pres- ident Emeritus of Agnes Scott, shared memories of Frost ' s visits to Agnes Scott. Poet Richard Wilbur gave a reading of his works and, with Mr. Brooks, discussed Frost ' s poet- ry. A program of the poetry, spoken and sung, was also presented, and coffees and a reception gave both students and faculty a chance to talk with the speakers about the man whose " lover ' s quarrel with the world " lives on in his poetry. The Frost Celebration Above: During her visit at Scott Mrs. Morrison talked with students over lunch at the cafeteria. Below: Cleanth Brooks, Dr. Alston, Pres- ident Emeritus, and Dr. Perry, President of Agnes Scott, escorted each other down from the stage following the convocation honoring Frost. Above: Cleanth Brooks and Richard Wilbur discussed Frost ' s poetry i the auditorium of the Dana Fine Arts building as part of the Frost cele bration. Upper left: Students turned out to watch the faculty processional at Honors Day convocation, the traditional convocation in which Stukes Scholars and Honor Roll students are recognized. Lower Left: Graham Jackson, entertainer extraordinaire of Presidents and Pittypat ' s Porch pa- trons, captivated students at a Wednesday convocation fall quarter, displaying his talent at the organ, the piano, and the accordion. Above: Catherine Simms, Honors Day speaker, was a former Professor of History and Political Science at Agnes Scott from 1939 to 1965, and a former Dean at Sweetbriar College. She spoke on the alternatives for lifestyles and opportunities for fulfillment open to women today. The Guarneri String Quartet performed in Gaines Auditorium Monday evening, October 14. October was a busy month at Agnes Scott. Crowded in between Honor ' s Day and the Frost Centennial and Black Cat was an excellent performance by the inter- nationally famous Guarneri String Quartet. Admission was free and open to the entire community, and the concert was well attended. A reception in Rebekah Reception followed the performance. November brought with it a new " conscious- raising " in the Bio-ethics Conference. In order to fa- miliarize the students with the issues involved in bio- ethics the conference was preceded by three seminars. The topics of the seminars were those which were to be discussed at the main conference — genetic research and its attending problems, euthanasia, and the problems associated with human experimentation. These seminars were well attended and helped to stimulate interest in the conference itself, held November 6-8. Continuing on the high plane of intellectual stimu- lation in which Agnes Scott prides itself was the lec- ture given by Phi Beta Kappa visiting scholar Hazel Barnes. Ms. Barnes, a professor at Colorado Universi- ty, addressed the topic of " Existentialism and Alien- ation " January 13 in MacLean Auditorium. Ms. Barnes also spoke to a psychology class here on campus. While at Agnes Scott Ms. Hazel Barnes, Phi Beta Kappa guest lecturer, spoke to the Contemporary Theories in Psychology class. | Above left: Departing from the usual Founder ' s Day " pat -on -t he-back " type speech, guest speaker John Mcguire addressed faculty and students on " Recov- ery, Renewal, Transformation: Challenge for the Liberal Arts College.

Traditionally sponsored by the Junior class as a chari- ty fund-raising project, this year the Junior Jaunt projects raised over a thousand dollars for Florida ' s Duvall Home for retarded children. All four classes teamed up to coordinate the activities. The Sopho- more Banquet, with the Senior Raffle and the Freshman Slave Auction, was held Thursday at dinner. Later that evening students attended the Junior Class sponsored Talent Show, in which students and staff displayed their abilities to tell and take a joke, along with some excellent and unusual " talent. " The featured event on Friday was J.J. ' s Country Store, sponsored by the Juniors. Held in the Hub, the Country Store featured potted plants, study boards, a bake sale, and a Senior-sponsored Left-over Corner.

Although some parents were seen lurking around school grounds that Thursday night, official activi- ties did not begin until Friday ' s chapel at which Dr. Michael Brown, Professor of Histo- ry, spoke. Later that afternoon parents had the opportunity to visit Dana Fine Arts Build- ing, Bradley Observatory and the Howland — Garber model of Solomon ' s Temple. Although most parents needed not to be reminded of their daughter ' s talents, sophomores treated them to a Creative Arts Production and a Dolphin Club Water Show. Saturday morning parents visited some of their daughter ' s classes, all the better to appreciate the luncheon and dessert coffee held afterwards in their honor. Parents were then left at their daughter ' s mercy for the remainder of the weekend. Right: One of the most memorable of the Agnes Scott experiences was the Sophomore Parent ' s Banquet boneless fried chicken. With such royal treatment as the service by smiling senior, students and parents were encouraged to hack it for another two years.

William Inge ' s " Glory in the Flower, " Edmond Rostand ' s " The Romancers, " and Edward Albee ' s " The Sandbox " were presented on the first round, with the recognition scene from " Anastasia " and Jean-Paul Sartre ' s " No Exit " given the next weekend. Above are Susan Stigall as Grandma and Glenn Williamson as Daddy in a scene from " The Sandbox. " Right: Dr. JoAllen Bradham, associate Professor of English, stunned " The Grass Harp " audiences with her portrayal of the character Verena Talbo. The musical ERNEST IN LOVE was given spring quarter. Left: Linda Kimbrough and Dennis Greening showed how the one-act play " The Romancers " got its name. Below: Debbie McBride and Glenn Williamson played Mommy and Daddy in Edward Albee ' s " The Sandbox " , directed by student Sarah Brooke. The National Players of the Catholic University in Washington, D.C., performed Shakespeare ' s Henry IV, Part I, to a full house in Gaines Auditorium. Besides Prince Hal and Hotspur, Falstaff was the character with whom most Scotties could identify. Blackfriar ' s production of Truman Capote ' s " The Grass Harp " was selected as first alter- nate in the Southeas- tern regional competi- tion of the American College Theater Fes- tival. For her portrayal of Catherine Creek, Susan Stigall, with Lynn Summer and Eric Anthony above, was honored by being asked to compete for the Irene Ryan drama scholarship at the re- gional festival in Talla- hassee, Florida. From Capping to Investiture to Graduation Each year at Agnes Scott had its own flavor, but the Senior year was unique. The process of becoming a Sen- ior began at Capping in April of the Junior year. In the secret ceremony each Senior gave a Junior her mortar board, symbolizing the Junior ' s entrance into the Senior class to fill the place of the leaving Senior. The ceremo- ny, held at night, was preceded by a banquet for both classes. The Seniors ' status was officially recognized at Senior Investiture in which the Seniors received their own mortar boards from the Dean of Faculty, Julia T. Gary. Investiture represented the first stage in the process of Graduation — the cap ' s tassle was placed on the right side at Investiture and at Graduation was flipped to the left side to symbolize the completed cycle. Dr. Kwai Chang, Professor of Bible and Religion, was chosen by the class to speak at the November 2 Investiture, and Dr. Lawrence Bottoms spoke at the Sunday worship ser- vice held for Seniors and their parents. Senior year ended for the Class of 1975 on June 8, 1975 with Graduation ceremonies. By then they had capped the Class of 1976 who began the cycle again. Above: Seniors gathered on the porch of Rebekah Saturday morning to be lined up for their own Investiture processional.

For the college it was a time for for- mally welcoming Dr. Perry after a year of getting to know him. Proceedings honoring Dr. Perry began May 15 with convocation speaker Josephine Jacobsen, poet, critic and former con- sultant to the Library of Congress. Agnes Scott alumna Dr. Jeanne Addison Roberts, currently at the American University in Washington, D.C., spoke on " Shakespeare ' s Prince Hal as a Model for Career Women " at a second convocation on May 17. That evening the celebration continued with a concert given by the glee clubs of Anges Scott, Georgia Tech, and Spelman. Inaugural cer- emonies Saturday morning included the repre- sentatives of nearly two hundred other institutions in academic procession, and formal welcomes to Dr. Perry from the different segments of the college — the trustees, faculty, and students. President Emeritus Wallace Alston took part in the ceremony in which Alex P. Gaines inducted Dr. Perry into the presidency. The day was made complete with the celebration of the Inaugural Ball at the Executive Park Motor Hotel. In the outside ceremonies Dr. Perry reiterated what he considered to be Agnes Scott ' s goals for the future in his address " To What Green Altar . . .?

Studious " DAY " STUDENTS Burn Midnight Oil Day students were once called " Irregular Students " , implying some digestive or mental deficiency on their parts. Now they are just called " Day Students " , a misnomer which seems to imply that their span of activity is limited from sunrise to sunset. Au contraire! The " average Day Student " , whoever SHE is, must have trucked, bussed, autoed, or walked to the halls of Agnes Scott, preceding the light of day. " Day " students returned to their respective homes long after the day was gone. Thus, were often left " in the dark " . This state of " darkness " extended to the daylight hours spent in the halls of Scott. Although they worked just as hard as the " regular " students at scholastic ac- tivities, " Day " Students were often left in the dark about the ex- tracurricular ones; however, most made special arrangements to at- tend " night " activities. With respect to homework the " Day " Students ' hours were not confined to the hours of light. Many battled traffic, or went to evening jobs, or attended to family responsibilities before settling down to homework. This studying often extended beyond the evening hours, but many did not have the luxury of sleeping late the next morning. Although their lack of participation was frequently criticized, it must be noted that Day Students were probably on the whole more disciplined, more hardworking, and more exposed to the realities of life, especially the economic ones, than were the " regular " students. They had less time in which to do their research, studying, and homework, but seemed to do it better. Perhaps, Day Students were, indeed, " irregular " , but it was an ir- regularity of which they could be proud.

JoAnne was also the Junior Class Stuke ' rholar for 1973-74. She was the member of her class with the highest average. Belov nne Loden typed on a paper at home. She hoped to attend law school after graduation ii A husband was playing tennis when a familiar woman, fearing an indiscretion on his part, asked in an endearing tone of voice if he were a student at Agnes Scott. He answered, beaming with pride, " I ' m married to her 1 " , glad that he had remem- bered to put on a shirt. If you want to find out what it ' s like being married to a Scottie, simply ask the husband. He invariably finds Agnes to be a devoted second wife, one who never leaves his side. At dinner, Agnes is present in the alluring shape of a bowl of Campbell ' s tomato soup — " that ' s one snappy tomato 1 " — barely warmed and straight from the saucepan; or in her purest form, Agnes takes the flawless shape of an ab- sent wife off attending Rep Council, Arts Council, Mortar Board, BOZ, Aurora, you name it. And Agnes is equally attentive at bedtime. A husband is often overwhelmed, if not totally distracted, by Agnes ' deter- mined presence at his side. She is a per- fect bedfellow, having no fattish hips, no haircurlers, no face cream, needing no reading lamp for those curious " five extra minutes of study. " Agnes ' bedtime shape is also that of an absent, but studious wife. Yes, any husband of a Scottie can tell you that Agnes is the sort of woman that demands a lot. And she gives in re- turn, well . . . strength of character, perhaps. But mostly, the husband married to Agnes would have to admit that Agnes gives her " husband " a wife, who though often absent, is bound and determined to sustain a nourishing relationship with her husband and an amicable — if not thoroughly " modern " — relationship with a jealous and generous second wife named Agnes Scott. JoAnne De Levan Williams The Year in Perspective President Richard Milhouse Nixon announced his resignation as 37th President of the United States on August 8. He became a casualty of the Watergate holocaust. Facing almost certain impeachment, .Nixon left office after releasing the transcript of a conversation with H.R. Haldeman showing that he knew of the Watergate coverup sev- eral days after the original incident. This knowledge confirmed what the nation long had suspected but what the White House repeatedly had de- nied. Scotties entered the 1974-75 school year with a new model pres- ident. Gerald Rudolph Ford, although a Republican like his predecessor, pledged an open government. The hope he voiced was that we could put Watergate behind us and tackle long-neglected problems. The nation had been at a standstill throughout the investigation. Now most were tired of hashing and rehashing events related to Watergate. Ford, a former football star, cap- tured the nation ' s fancy as he made his own lunches and swam daily to keep fit. Quite a different mood settled over the nation for a short time. The new President ' s viva- ciousness was a relief from the previous gloom and tension Nixon had exhibited in his last days. Ford turned his attention to energy, economy, and amnesty. The nation ' s honeymoon with its new leader was over quickly as Ford announced a " full, free, and absolute pardon " for " citizen " Rich- ard Nixon even before any formal charges had been lodged. This ac- tion touched off speculation that a deal had been made. Ford ' s press secretary, Gerald terHorst, resigned in protest rather than justify the controversial action. After weeks of speculation, Ford nominated Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York for Vice- President. This brought about inves- tigations into the legendary wealth of the family. Rocky was worth $218.4 million and it was disclosed he had given $24,71 2,245 in gifts to charitable, educational, and other tax-exempt organizations between 1957 and June 30, 1974. After four months of inquisition, he was sworn in as the 41st Vice-President by Chief Justice Warren Burger. Thus, the nation was led, for the first time in its history, by two men who were not elected by the vote of the peo- ple. Shortly after Ford took office his wife, Betty, a former Powers model, was operated on for breast cancer. Nineteen days later, " Happy " Rockefeller, wife of the Vice- President, was operated on for the same malady. These incidents made American women more aware of the danger of this type cancer. Nixon ' s phlebitis, which had plagued him in his last days in of- fice, worsened and he went into the hospital in October. While reco- vering from an operation to relieve the clot in his leg, he nearly died of shock. The pressures of office and his disgrace, some speculated, had caused him to lose the will-to-live. Ford ' s long-awaited amnesty pro- gram was finally presented. To the disappointment of the young men it affected, the proposal was not for unconditional amnesty. Few men took advantage of the program. Most others held to their convictions that they had done nothing wrong and would accept nothing less than complete amnesty without strings. Sparking off a round of new jokes and much concern from his fellow Congressmen, Wilbur Mills, power- ful Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, was involved in a scandel that caused him to be hospitalized and finally to resign his Chairmanship. At 2 a.m. in late Oct- ober, Washington, D.C. police pulled a car over which had been maneuvering recklessly. One of the women in the vehicle jumped into the Tidal Basin and was fished out by police. She was identified as Anabella Battistella, a striptease dancer, who worked under the name Fanne Fox, the Argentine Fire- cracker. Mills, who apparently ac- companied her in the car, was drunk. Fearing the incident could cause him to lose the November election which had previously been " in the bag " , he made public apolo- gies and went back to Arkansas to campaign contritely. His slogan was " Never drink champagne with for- eigners. " Mills was reelected handi- ly. Yet, he later appeared on stage with Miss Battistella, who was now capitalizing on the title, The Tidal Basin Bombshell. Her sputtering ca- reer had suddenly flamed; but, unhappily, at Mill ' s expense. Friends, recognizing he was ill, urged him to go into the hospital for tests. Upon emerging, Mills made a public announcement that he was an alcoholic and planned to undergo treatment. But by this time the fias- co had already cost him his powerful Chairmanship and stirred his col- legues ' displeasure. The November 1974 elections had several interesting aspects to them. In the wake of the Watergate issue, liberal Democrats made a sweep of Congressional and other of- fices over the country. The attitude of the freshmen Congressmen was unlike the traditional one. The new group felt they had received a man- date from the people. The result was that cracks were made in the senior- ity system in Congress. Their upris- ing threatened long tenures of com- mittee Chairmen. It also became the Year of Women as Connecticut chose the first woman governor elected in her own right. North Carolina elected its first woman Supreme Court Chief Justice, and the first woman mayor to reign over a city of more than half a million people was elected in California. Eighteen was the total number of Congresswomen as women came out 27% ahead in number of elected offices previously held in the nation. It might have been the Year of Women in some ways but they still struggled with ratification of the Equal Rights Ammendment. Thirty four states had already approved the potential 27th Ammendment and four more were needed, but it looked like a losing battle. The Georgia Senate defeated it in Febuary after days of debate and speculation. The vote was 33-22, a much wider margin than had been expected. In Georgia new members of the legislature which convened in January made up one third of both the House and Senate. Georgia ' s new governor, George Busbee, had previously defeated Lieutenant Gov- ernor Lester Maddox in the Sep- tember runoff for the Democratic nomination. Busbee ' s opponent was Republican law-and-order candidate " Machine Gun " Ronnie Thompson, mayor of Macon. Governor Jimmy Carter, Busbee ' s predecessor, announced his can- didacy for the Democratic Presiden- tial nomination in 1976. Two other Georgia men tentatively threw their hats in the Presidential ring, Lester Maddox, and State Senator Julian Bond, former civil rights leader. Senator Edward Kennedy, the last of the famous brothers, announced he would not be a 1976 Presidential candidate. In spite of trying to get away from Watergate, the country still was under its grip. Judge John J. Sirica released John Dean, Jeb Magruder, and Herbert Kalmbach from jail early. They had pled guilty in the coverup investigation. On Febuary 3 other Nixon aides, H.R. Haldeman, and John D. Ehrlichman, along with former Nixon Attorney General John N. Mitchell were sen- tenced by Sirica to identical two and one half to eight year terms for their parts in the coverup. All were ap- pealing the sentence. Inflation, stagflation, recession, and depression were terms batted around by politicians and econo- mists in efforts to explain just what ailed the country ' s economy. The general concensus seemed to lean toward recession. Ford proposed his economic pro- gram, Whip Inflation Now (WIN), soon after taking office. It consisted of ten points. The program ' s at- tempt to get everyone involved was a flop. Maybe the nation ' s mood was already too pessimistic for the en- thusiasm to be whipped up. The January unemployment rate was 8.2%, the highest total in 33 years. Georgia reached an historical high of 9.7% unemployment in the first week in March. Indications were that the rate was headed for 1 1 % before it peaked. The outlook for jobs for 1975 graduates ap- peared the worst since World War Two. The cost of living index had the highest annual increase in 28 years, up 12.2%. As a result of the slump, American Motors, General Motors, Chrysler, and Ford offered cash rebates for car purchases to stimulate sales. In order to conserve energy, Ford proposed a $3 per barrel extra tax on imported oil, distributing the extra cost evenly over the nation. This scheme, attacked by the Demo- cratic Congress, resulted in a Senate vote for a 90 day halt on the propos- al. Ford vetoed the bill but agreed to withhold the proposal for 60 days while Congress worked on a plan of placing a smaller tax on gas which would rise as the economy improved. Meanwhile, around the world, oil consumption was down because of conservation efforts and mild winters. The Organization of Petro- leum Exporting Countries (OPEC) was forced to consider the lowering of oil prices to compensate. The CIA, it was revealed, allegedly hired the mafia to asas- sinate Fidel Castro in 1960, before the Bay of Pigs. The plan was prevented when officials in the U.S. government learned of it. Many famous people died over the year. Mrs. Martin Luther King, Sr., mother of the slain civil rights worker, was asassinated in Atlanta during a church service. Other deaths included General Creighton W. Abrams, former U.S. forces com- mander during the Vietnam war and Army Chief of Staff, Jack Benny, comedian; Dizzy Dean, star baseball pitcher of the 1930 ' s; former Supreme Court Chief Justice, Earl Warren; Cass Elliot, American pop singer; billionaire oil man, H.L. Hunt, Charles A. Lindbergh, aviator; Ed Sullivan, TV variety show host who introduced The Beatles and Elvis Presley to America, Juan Peron, Argentine President; former UN Secretary General, U Thant; and etiquette expert, Amy Vanderbuilt. Interracial violence broke out in Boston when a court ordered busing of school children began in an effort to racially integrate. In religious news, 1 1 women were ordained as Episcopal priests in defiance of church hierarchy. One half the globe was spanned in September in a race against time by a U.S. Air Force SR71 reconnais- sance plane. It flew from London to Los Angeles in a record 3 hours and 47 minutes, or greater than 1492 miles per hour. In late 1974 Pioneer II whirled around Jupiter and sent back de- tailed pictures of the Jovian surface K | poPU ' now i IL i and moons. The craft then headed on a 1.5 billion mile flight to Saturn — ETA 1 979. Dr. Christiaan Barnard, who per- formed the first successful heart transplant, completed the first suc- cessful operation in which he added a second heart to a man to work si- multaneously with his original organ. Hurricane Fifi, bringing winds of 1 10 miles per hour, whipped through Honduras killing at least 4000 peo- ple and obliterating whole towns with flooding and landslides. It left over a half a million homeless and ruined 90% of the country ' s crops. A cyclone in Australia destroyed 90% of the city of Darwin on Christmas morning. Daredevil Evil Knievel failed to rocket on a motorcycle 1600 feet across the Snake River Canyon in Idaho. He parachuted to safety. In baseball news the Oakland A ' s captured their third World Series in a row by defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers for the title. Muhammed Ali fought and beat George Foreman to regain the World Heavyweight Championship. The Pittsburg Steelers captured the Super Bowl by defeating the Minnesota Vikings. Football player O.J. Simpson won the superstars competition for the best all-around athlete in the nation. A hockey player was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon in a fight which took place during a hockey game. The deadly weapon was his hockey stick. The ruling promises to bring about drastic changes in the game. In international news, the new President met with Soviet Chairman Breshnev in Vladivostok. The two men agreed to limit the number of strategic atomic weapons in their re- spective countries. Ford and Secre- tary of State Henry Kissinger urged Congress to give emergency military aid to Cambodia to prevent its fall to the Communists. A Congressional delegation was sent over to inves- tigate. In the summer of 1974 fighting broke out on the island of Cyprus. Archbishop Makarios was ousted by a greek-led coup. Turkey invaded the island in July and wanted to par- tition it. The fighting between these two NATO countries came to a stalemate. Five months after the island was split Makarios returned but the stalemate remained. Another NATO country with new developments was Portugal. The dic- tator was overthrown by a leftist junta who has promised April 1975 elections. The communists seem strong in the country and the Rus- sians have been using the Por- tuguese ports a great deal with Seemingly unlimited access. The 44 year rule by Emperor Haile Selassi of Ethiopia ended Sep- tember 12 when he was deposed by an Armed Forces Coordination Com- mittee. Later 59 of his jailed as- sociates were executed. While fighting still continued in the Middle East and Ireland, Ameri- cans were fighting another enemy, fat. Everyone was on one diet after another. The emphasis was on the slim, tanned, white-toothed, All- American ideal. Individuality seemed to lose its ' place in the search for the mass media ' s manu- factured image inside oneself. We were all none too happy with oursleves nor our country. The nation ' s mood was reflected in the rash of disaster films: " The Towering Inferno, " " Airport 1975 " and " Earthquake. " Americans could not even make up their minds about fashion. As the economy rose and fell so did hems. Most college students preferred comfort to fash- ion and bluejeans and T-Shirts were as " down to earth " as they could get. Still the advertisers plugged their image and the products needed to make it come true. Yet for all the effort, young people made a gallant effort to hold on to their individu- ality, and to get away from the dirty politics, dirty water, dirty air, and traffic and people jams. Yet, there was no REAL escape. Post Office work was Addie Price ' s regular scholarship job. Gina Etheridge found time to do needlework while on Walter ' s hostess duty. Scholarship Students Work to Fulfill Obligation srrn Everyone on scholarship had the experience — at least once — of having hostess duty until midnight followed by Post Office work the next morning at 8 a.m. These students worked behind the scenes in every department and area of organization, typing, filing, and talking. Once one filled out the seemingly endless number of forms, she had to maintain a " respectable " average. Ms. Stapleton was based in a new office this year, but her little reminders still found their way to your mailbox. Spring quarter found anxious girls wondering if their scholarship would match the tuition increase, and if they would get to work in the greenhouse with Mr. Wistrand again in the fall. Pleasant " employers " were found everywhere, and you never got fired for being just a little late. Sometimes, academic and student service work piled up — have you ever given a prospective student a tour and finished five minutes before a midterm? But for all of the schedule copying, " busy " work, and putting on a good front when you had a temperature of 104, there was a certain feel- ing that never left. You always felt needed, and that made it all worthwhile. Working in the library was how some students fulfilled their service obligations Air Conditioning Cools Stuffy Book Worms Above: The va Shelli Ji ilted ceil ' nkins used the card catalogue to locate some books for a term paper. Below: ng of the reference room was interesting to study if we got tired of reading. Almost everyone talked with Ms. Newman once while attending Scott, either we hadn ' t returned a book on time, or somehow a reserve book ac- cidentally slipped among our other texts before 9:30 p.m. The one book that was VITAL to our paper was always hidden. Reading was hard, too, for we table hopped to find a study lamp that worked. The one thing that always worked was forbidden — the sacred staff elevator. If caught on it one felt as big as a page of the TIMES — microfilmed. Also, the library was a good place to sleep, study, and quietly (?) Xerox. Yet, we dragged ourselves away when aroused by the 10:15 chimes. These sent us out into the cold cruel world each night. Unlike the professors, the chimes seemed to forget that " reading maketh a full man " (or woman). Above: It ' s always easier to read lying down, Ann Walker found one of the library ' s couches comfortable enough to relax on while studying.

The usually crowded halls looked strange when empty. night . . . . Nor flu, nor spring fever, nor fatigue, nor lack of mail (male) could keep a Scottie from attending class, most of the time. Day in and day out we made the trek to Buttrick, Campbell, or Dana for most of the classes were held in these buildings. If you were a music major you probably spent more time in Presser. At any rate, Buttrick was the mecca, for therein lay most faculty offices, Dean Gary, and THE MAILROOM. If you were like most girls you averaged three trips a day to see if you got a letter. If you stayed here four years that ' s about 3,240 trips to the mail room not counting just passing through at other times a day. If that much time was spent on homework, well . . . we ' d all have been Phi Beta Kappa. The reason most of us were at Scott was, of course, to get an education and that entailed attending class. Some were boring, some were rowdy, most were in between. The seats were hard and difficult to sleep in. If you were right-handed and got stuck with a left-handed desk you may as well have cut the class for all the legible notes you got. Some classes were long — labs were three hours — and some were short — 50 minutes, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. After class there was always studying, research in the library, faculty conferences, and language lab work. A student ' s work was never done and holidays were a welcomed relief with exams finished and no worry about papers due the next day. Below: Margaret Pepperdene obviously held the attention of her English classes. Above: Art lab was a relief. We exchanged books for sketch pads. Below: The Buttrick stairs are well- worn after many students went up and down them daily to get to class. Nancy White appealed to her roomate Louise Dawsey, " PLEASE, Louise, come out, I didn ' t mean to make you mad.

She hod just been tempted by a group of friends head- ing for Manuel ' s. A professor ' s assignment kept her from taking advantage of the " cul- tural " opportunity. Dorm life had its moments, though. There were nights when you could sneak away for a P by C pizza or take advantage of a birthday party on the hall. Dormmates became close friends. Together they endured the trials of communal living, which included noisy pipes in old dorms, trains at all hours, and scalding or freezing showers. There was always someone around for comfort and if you were bored you could always resort to an intellectural discus- sion. All nighters were rarely pulled alone, chances were someone else had mounds of studying, too. Dorm life was where one, hopefully, learned tolerence and sharing. It, not the academics at Scott, is what brought us close and forged the special relationship Above: Lynn Neely rolled her hair to prepare for a date. There was always some- one around to ask ad- vice on makeup and proper dress for the oc- casion, and to let you borrow trinkets to en- hance your outfit.

" ffiofo (Boob tgesttcm nb JCealilj on o f Shakespeare ' s immortal words glare down on us at each pilgrimage to Letita Pate Evans Dining Hall. Come rain or shine we all must share our repast in order to survive the rigors of studying. In these lean years, Mystery meat became our main subsistence, rendering unto our stomachs obnoxious sounds and equally ob- noxious odors unto our friends. Occassionally, a digestible meal presented itself and was greeted with cheers and astonishment. If there were two edible dinners in a row we were bound to think the Apocalypse (or exam time) was near. The thoughtful addition of ice cream sundaes for special occasions was a real morale and diet booster. A Henry IV dinner complete with roast pig and fruit center pieces caught us completely off guard, especially the " crowning " touch. The diet fad was rampant, especially as bikini season neared. " I ' m going on a diet tomorrow " was the watch word as we filled our faces with the dining hall ' s famous cookies. There was certainly food for thought, and let it never be said we never gave a thought for food. Despite all the complaints, Letita Pate never lacked an audience.

The stars of the Henry IV dinner were the two roast pigs, complete with apples. The cafeteria help all wore crowns. 1 ' Al ' T|.jjij rt.a Office Of The President Marvin Banks Perry, Jr., fourth president of the college, was always available to the students, either for formal appointment, or just to chat. A new year brought more things to be done, changes to be made. Yet Agnes Scott still held to traditions. Dr. Marvin B. Perry ' s first year was successful and many physical changes were made on the campus — new lights, signs, and air condi- tioning of some buildings. Also, decisions had to be made about other areas of Agnes Scott life. A steering committee was appointed late in fall quarter to discuss some of these needs which included student-faculty relations, academic needs, and plans for the future. The committee was repre- sentative of students, faculty, alumnae, trustees, and ad- ministrators. Dr. Perry ond Dr. Henderson, Vice-President in Charge of Business, discussed some new plans for Agnes Scott while on their way to lunch in the Dining Hall. Dr. Perry and Dr. Joseph M. Pettit, President of Georgia Tech, got a big kick out of the antics of the Scotties during the Orientation Dr. Perry often led both formal and informal Convocations. At Honors Day the faculty marched in ac demic procession. In his book-lined office, Dr. Perry took time between appoint- ments to read his mail. Bertie Bond, administrative assistant and secretary to the President, and secretary to the Board of Trustees, was always ready with a smile or a witty word. Her candy iar was well-known around Scott. Julia T. Gary, Decn of the Faculty, counseled the students in then problems. She was especially busy during registration, helping junior: and seniors with their course ond schedule changes. Office of the Dean of Faculty The Dean of Faculty ' s office tried to make sure that the students were free of any problems. Assisting Dean Gary this year was newcomer Gue Hudson. Both were busy with the students ' problems ond questions, but still managed to keep their cheerful attitudes. Gue P. Hudson, the new Assistant Dean of Faculty, was not a newcomer to Agnes Scott. Dean Hudson, a graduate of ASC, specialized in coun- seling freshmen and sophomores. Connie Henderson, a graduate of Randolph Macon, served as an adminis- trative intern in the Dean of Faculty ' s office. She was a participant in a new program to train women for college administrative careers. 7L- Secretaries to the Deans of Faculty, Katherine S. Turner, and Kathryn G. Tureen, Secretary in the Office of the Dean of Facul ty, were constantly busy making appointments and answering students ' questions. Dean Gary entertained the Great Pumpkin, alias Ann Fmcher, in h office during the Halloween season. Ann was Chairman of Spu Committee. Mildred Petty, Assistant Dean of Faculty, was on leave for the year Office of the Dean of Students The Dean of Students ' office took care of all student needs other than academics. Under the leadership of the new dean, Martha C. Huntington, the office helped with dorm life, worked with Rep Council, assisted with plans for Investiture, Sophomore Parent ' s Weekend, Junior Jaunt, and Graduation, in addition to dealing with countless other indi- vidual student needs. Mrs. Huntington came to Agnes Scott from Washington, D.C. A widow, Mrs. Hunt- ington brought her two sons with her to Decatur. Her daughter remained in Washing- ton to finish her senior year in high school. Dean Huntington brought a wonderful willingness to plan and work with students to her new job. Moll ie Merrick, Assistant Dean of Students directed freshman orien- tation and was Black Cat advisor. Below: Joan W. Davis, Secretary in the Office of Student Services was busy with the many students who visited the office for help. Mary Lindig, Secretary to the Dean of Students was in charge of the college calender. Mollie Merrick handled any problems that new students had and she was in charge of dorm assignments. lone Murphy, Assistant Dean of Students and Director of Career Planning was constantly at work trying to place seniors in suitable jobs. Senior Residents were very important people to I the students who lived in dorms. They were I frequently faced with questions and problems by the girls. Their constant work and cheerful atti- tudes were much appreciated. Senior Residents were Faye Parks in Walters, Sidney Kerr in Winship, and Con- ception Leon in Inman. Other senior residents were Roberta Sullivan in Rebekah, Lou Voorhees in Hopkins, and Mary Queen in Mom. ,- N . r r . i i i Registrar Miss Laura M. Steele, Registrar, was a fan day. iar sight on registration-scheduling The Registrar ' s Office worked separately from the Admission ' s Office for the first time this year. They kept all student grades and files. Transcripts and grade point averages were obtained from this office. Class registration and scheduling were the biggest job of the office. Linda P. Anderson was secretary in the busy Registrar ' s Office. Gloria M. Wyatt, 1974 ASC graduate, was Assistant to the Registrar. She kept transcripts and had the big job of putting grades on them at the end of the quarter. Admissions Office Marcia Knight served as Assistant to the Director of Admissions. She took on the responsibility of visiting Presbyterian churches, while also visiting high schools in the Texas-Louisiana area. Ann Rivers Thompson. Director of Admissions, travelled to Europe the early fall, visiting schools in a many as 24 cities. Judy Maguire specialized in the recr in the Atlanta area. itment of students Mary Margaret MacLauchlin travelled to j Carolina, and the Washington, DC. area. In projecting goals for the 1974-1975 year, the Admis- sions Office voted together in developing a new admissions trust that would bind the college ■ colleges in Virginia, Tennessee, North community students, faculty, staff, and alumnae more closely in an admissions consciousness which would help spread the word about ASC. Jan Johnson was one secretary in the Office. Mary K. Jarboe (not pit tured), Administrative Assistant, managed to keep the office in order. Kay Potter served as secretary in the Admissions Office. Melissa Vandiver, who took on the responsibility of Alumnae Admissions, traveled Georgia and surrounding states. Angie Jarrett, who assumed the position of Assistant Director, represented ASC in the NACAC convention in New York. Office of Public Relations The Office of Public Relations tried to make sure that the community knew what was hap- pening at Agnes Scott. This office also saw that our hometown papers knew what we were doing while away at college. They directed any film ing or news coverage about Agnes Scott, and published the weekly calender. A most important function of the office was coordinating summer conference programs on campus. Dr. Edward McNair, Director of Public Relations, had the information anyone needed at his fingertips. He knew what was going on at Agnes Scott, and saw that it was well published in the community. He also helped with the Alumnae Club Bazaar at Phipps ' Plaza which included the ASC exhibit that was shown ear- lier at Lenox Square. Andrea Helms, left, was news director for the College. She took care of news releases to the papers, plus she often was seen showing photographers around who were taking pictures for the school. Dorothy Markert, a secretary in Public Relations Of- fice, handled calls about events at ASC. Paul M. McCain, Vice-President for Development, was the top man charge of obtaining funds other than tuition fees. Mary L. Curry as Assistant Fund Officer was in charge of planned The Development Office administered the Agnes Scott Fund. This fund came from do- nations from alumnae and friends of the college. This money went to supplement the cost for students not covered by tuitions, and to make general improvements on the campus property. Office of Development In the Development Office, Gene S. Wilkes was Assistant Fund Officer in charge of records, Janet A. Pi sistant Director, Debra L. Neely was secretary, and Deborah A. Fleming was Assistant Fund Officer Alumnae giving. ■kle was As- n charge of Treasurer ' s Office Every person at Agnes Scott had at least one oc- casion to deal with the Treasurer ' s Office during the year. This office cashed checks, and collected payme nts for tuition, room, and board. Mr. William M. Hannah, Treasurer, was an active part of the college com- munity, as well as handling student finances. Working in the Treasurer ' s Office were Kate B. Goodson, Janet S. Holmes, and Janet M. Gould. Miss S. Anne Stapleton was Director of Financial Aid. In this year of infla- tion, this was a very busy office. c I M fi Mrs. Ela B. Curry was a very gracious Alumnae House Manager Working with Mrs. McKenzie were Carey 8. Craig, Frances W. Strother, and Beth S. Moody. Alumnae Office Keeping in touch with former gradu- ates, publishing a quarterly magazine and providing a place for friends and relatives to stay overnight, were just a few of the tasks that were taken care of by the Alumnae Office. Virginia B. McKenzie was the new Director of Alumnae Affairs and was busy with new projects and keeping in touch with alumni. Ela B. Curry, manager of the Alumnae house, always cheerfully greeted the overnight guests. Virginia B. McKenzie, new Director of Alumnae Affairs began her year with many speaking engagements to Alumnae Clubs. Business Office The Business Office oversaw the physical running of the college. The dining hall, dormitory office, and all maintenance facilities were under this office. This year the office directed the air-conditioning of several build- ings, the cleaning of others, and the installation of signs throughout the campus. Economy measures, such as closing the laundry, were also begun. Louis P. Cox ran the post office and saw to it that our letters and " care " packages. Top: R.

Turner, Supervisor of Dormitories kept track of all the keys to the dorms and the furniture in them. They also arranged for us to store our trunks during summer vacation. Library Whenever noisy dorms got you down, you knew that you could always go to the library for quiet stud y. Their books were necessities when you had to write a paper. The staff was helpful when it came to finding that obs- cure reference your professor told you about. You could even sleep on the couch if you were tired. Those working in the library were Janet Sanders, Miriam Merritt, Sally Thompson, technical services assistants; Ann Lathrup, reserve librarian; and Mildred Walker, secretary to the Librarian. Our always helpful library staff included Lillian Newman, Associate Librarian; Bess Ginn, Periodicals — Reference Librarian; Dawn Lamade, Technical Services Librarian; Mary Carter, Assistant Refer- ence Librarian; and Dale Luchsinger, Librarian. Infirmary Who took care of all of us. when we had colds, head- aches, pneumonia, nervous breakdowns, and broken hearts ' The one and only infirmary 1 They were always willing to prescribe an aspirin or just listen to a problem. Margaret Copple was one of our nurses and Dr. Rosemond Peltz saw us between 8 and 9 o ' clock each morning. Elsie Boyer, not pictured, was also a nurse in the infirmary. Gynocologists were Dr. Malcolm Freeman and Dr. Armand Hendee. Clair Kirkpatrick, right, was the new nurse this year. Dr. Irene Phrydas was the consulting Psychiatrist. a Bookstore Pens, pencils, books, drug items, and gifts were just a few of the items found in the bookstore this year. But even better than these things were the cheerful faces of those who worked there. Mrs. Ursula M. Be Bookstore. Mrs. Ve Dch, and Mrs. Elsie P. Doerpinghaus were Assistants in the Catherine Marshall LeSourd autographed copies of her new book ita M. Barnett was Bookstore Manager. Something More, in the bookstore. Dining Hall What was the most popular place on campus? Where was there a line waiting at 5 P.M. each day ? Who provided all those cal- ories for growing girls p It was the Dining Hall ' The staff was a hard-working crew trying to please an entire campus of hungry girls, all with differing likes and dislikes. Taking care of our Saunders, Dietitia dietary needs were Fae D. Robinson, Assistant Dietitian; Barbara F. 1; and M. Louise Wimpy, Supervisor. Selections were alwoys difficult when you were hungry.

Orientation Council Orientation Council is the student government board which is responsible for helping freshmen become acquainted with Agnes Scott. The council is made up of seven members. Their work actually began the spring before, continued through the summer, and climaxed in the fall when the freshmen arrived. The council was responsible for the viewbook, which contained the pictures of the freshmen and transfer students, and the new students ' calendar of activities. They also ar- ranged the Liberal Arts Orientation and Study Panel, the library tours, the street dance, and group trip to the Tech-Notre Dame game, and the Rush Mixer. Orientation Council began in- troducing Agnes Scott to freshmen in the summer. Orientation groups of four freshmen, Sophomore Helpers and Junior Sponsors were organized. When the freshmen arrived on September 8 Orien- tation Council members were in the Hub to wel- come them and their parents. The following morn- ing they sponsored a coffee and panel for w ■ mm t the parents.

In spite of her position, Ann Fincher, Spirit Committee Chairman, got down in the dumps when she had a lot of work to do. Her job was to remedy the blahs for the whole campus. Spirit Committee Spirit Committee was created in 1971 in order to " promote a spirit of happiness and enthusiasm throughout the Agnes Scott community. " The desire for such a spirit of happiness motivated Spirit Com- mittee to award the annual spirit trophy as both reward and initiative for " getting the spirit. " The junior class won the award this year. Spirit Committee also organized a fall Festival featuring boiled peanuts, dried flowers, apples, pumpkins, indian corn, hot cider, candy, and pottery done by Agnes Scott students. The items were things students might have found in a trip to the mountains — since the students didn ' t move to the mountains, the moun- tains moved to the students. Spirit Com- mittee also encouraged the appearance of the Great Pumpkin, the patron deity of Halloween. Other Spirit Committee tradi- tions included the Valentines for the campus, and annual Founder ' s Day Dinner. This dinner, with Dr. McNair as speaker, was " formal; " however, the term didn ' t exclude such evening attire as jeans under gowns or tennis shoe evening slippers.

Jear Emma Renee PROFILE 1974 1975 mn i— College for women Most of us at Agnes Scott are familiar with the concept of the liberal arts — the origin of the notion of the liberal education beginning with the Greeks, its perpetuation in the medieval universities through the College of Arts and Sciences, and the real impetus received from the Renais- sance with its emphasis on the education which " equips and perfects. " Though we have spoken of it less in the past few years, it is also significant that we are a college for women. The particular quality of the liberal arts college for women can best be understood in terms of metaphor. Plato, in THE REPUBLIC, points to the special relationship between the eye, the object seen and the light of the sun which illumi- nates both the eye and object. He writes that the power of vision in the eyes and color in the objects are still depen- dent upon light. Coming from the Sun, " this light is not vision, but it is the cause of it. A woman ' s college has much the same function for the young woman as the Sun has for the eye and the object. The eye is the mind, the liberal arts are the object to be perceived, and the college exists to provide the peculiar and particular environment which fosters the development of the inquiring mind. At Agnes Scott, women do it all; they are presidents as well as the secretaries in student government, the editors of publications as well as the typ- ists for them. Each student is able to see successful women as professors and department chairpersons instead of just lecturers and instructors, the case in many male-dominated " co-educational " institutions. Further, many students learn for the first time how to bond with other women and form meaningful relationships with them, an experience lacking in society where a woman often finds her friends among the wives of her husband ' s business associates. In THE REPUBLIC, Plato completes his argument by saying, " You will agree that the Sun not only makes things we see visible, but also brings them into existence and gives them growth and nourishment. " The woman ' s liberal arts college stands in the same relationship to a student; the college enables a young woman to grow. Joyce McKee, editor To the editor: Although members of the English department planned the Robert Frost Centennial Celebration, its success was the result of the enthusiastic support and participation of the entire campus, which took the Celebration unto itself and, in Dr. Alston ' s words, folded it into the College. Your Robert Frost Centennial Edition of the PROFILE was an appropriate introduction to the two exciting days of the Celebration, and you are to be commended for the splendid lay-out and precise editing, the fine presentation of the program of events by Patty Pearson, and the inter- esting interviews by you and your staff with Dr. Alston and Mr. Ferdinand Warren .... Our distinguished participants — Mr. Brooks, Mr. Wilbur, Mr. and Mrs. Morrison, and Dr. Alston — all told me they had never had a more delightful two days, and they particularly enjoyed the times they spent with students — even getting up for early breakfasts! . Mr. Wilbur wrote last week: " That was a delightful visit. It is perfectly mad to rush off to Georgia between Milton classes, but I so enjoyed it all that I came home in- vigorated rather than tired. " ... I would like to quote part of a letter from Prof. Bagby of Hampden-Sydney College . . .: " Particularly for a school of your (or our) size, such a program was no small accomplishment. The physical facilities of the College; the student participation in and attendance at the program; the general attitude of the College toward poetry and poets — all left me impressed and, I must confess, a little envious ... I suspect that Frost himself would have enjoyed it. " Margaret W.

Work on the 1975 SILHOUETTE started the summer of 1974 when the editor went to a Ohio University workshop conducted by specialists in yearbook layout, design, photography, and managment. When the staff started work in the fall every effort was made to depict Tradition and Change at Agnes Scott in a wide variety of ways. The object: to produce a unique yearbook, a volume that would accurately reflect the events of the 1974-75 school year. Despite many setbacks, expected and unexpected, the staff contributed all their time and talent. This sometimes necessitated sacrificing sleep, dates, schoolwork, and trips to Manuel ' s. Spring quarter was anxiously awaited because all deadlines were met by then. The staff looked forward to the finished product that was distributed before spring quarter exams began.

It is made up of four elected members from each class, in addition to the Pres- ident, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Day Student Chairman and two Advisory members. Weekly meetings resulted in several policy changes as well as the introduc- tion of new ones throughout the academic year. This year the council was especially concerned with revising the Judicial Council, revamping the drinking policy, reor- ganizing committees and drawing up the Student Govern- ment budget. Paying close attention to all that went on in weekly Rep meeting was the best way to keep up with changes on campus. Main Dorr representative, Helen DeWitt, found this out. Janie Sutton, SGA Secretary, and Mary Gay Morgan, President, mulled over some problems during a cup of coffee.

Dear People, I ' ve been worried for days about what to say when it came time to write this. I even went so far as to look at other editors ' comments. The only conclusion I came to was that each one of them viewed the experi- ence of editing their books differently. Although it ' s been apparent since I took on this job almost a year ago, it suddenly struck me that Agnes Scott is so packed with events, people, and impres- sions in one single year that it would have been im- possible for me to capture all of them, try as I might. I made a valiant effort, as the staff will testify. Yet, even now, I think of many things left unwritten, and countless pictures never taken. It is now 1 03 a.m., March 14, 1 975. It is senseless to attempt to write one piece that says all I need to. The whole book should stand as a statement, both the staff ' s and mine. It should be enjoyed as it was con- ceived, as an entity. I am fond of saying, " This year- book will probably have more impact on us as we look back twenty years from now. " The only thing I feel compelled to explain is the use of " God of the Marching Centuries " in the opening and closing sections. We have all sung it so often that it becomes a part of our experience here. It reflects, what I hope this book does, that Scott ' s tradi- tion is important to her, but that she does change, however slowly. We have attempted to mirror the dichotomy between tradition and change. This yearbook is a unique one for Scott. I hope you will all see it as a change for the better. This is my parting gift to each one of you. I must especially thank Margaret, Frances, Lucy, and Joel, without whom I wouldn ' t have made it. Just me — Beth P.S. To quote Mark Twain, " . . . and so there ain ' t nothing more to write about, and I am rotten glad of it, because if I ' d a knowed what a trouble it was to make a book I wouldn ' t a tackled it and I ain ' t agoing to no more.
