In the years that were the seventies, what did we really remember? In 1970, most of us were just beginning junior high school. Life was relatively uncomplicated. So we grew up with the seventies — and changed with them. The fads we took part in, the crises we lived through, the events of the decade have all shaped our lives in subtle ways. 1970 began as an extension of the 60 ' s. Richard M. Nixon was president, the war in Vietnam continued and students demonstrated on college campuses. In May, President Nixon made the decision to invade Cambodia. Protests across the country culminated in the shooting and killing of four students on the Kent State campus on May 18. In 1971, President Nixon extended his fight against inflation with the 90 day freeze on wages and prices. During the summer. Congress passed the Twenty-sixth Amendment, which lowered the voting age to eighteen. In February of 1972, President Nixon traveled to Communist China for a seven day visit, thus renewing relationships that had been broken for twenty-two years. In the spring, the Equal Rights Amendment was passed by Congress and presented to the states for ratification. Late in the summer, the Democrats nominated George McGovern and Nixon was chosen by the Republicans to represent them in the presidential election. In November, Richard Nixon won his second term in office in a landslide victory. The Watergate Trial — investigatii the break-in at the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee, began in January of 1973. Also, on January 23, the Paris Peace Talks resulted in peace in Vietnam. As the year progressed, more and more evidence of the Nixon Administration ' s involvement in Watergate came to light. In July, it was discovered that Nixon had taped many of his conversations in the White House. Scandal spread to the Vice Presidency when Spiro Agnew, implicated in bribery and corruption charges in Maryland, resigned. Nixon nominated Gerald R. Ford to be the new Vice President. 2 Changes Pattv Hearst. Karen Quinlan 1974 — the Watergate scandal continued. Patty Hearst was kidnapped in February, and in April she took part in a bank robbery with her captors, the Symbianese Liberation Army, Inflation was still increasing, and there was talk of impeaching the President. Finally, in mid-August, Richard Nixon resigned the presidency, and Gerald R. Ford became the first U.S. President who had not been elected as either president or vice president. Economic crises — 1975: inflation and unemployment were high and still rising, and the country had entered a recession. The Arab nations showed their economic power as they forced oil prices up and up. Communists took over both Cambodia and Vietnam. Women ' s rights took a step forward as liberalized abortion laws were passed. In 1976, the United States celebrated its 200th birthday. The yearlong celebration culminated on July 4. In the presidential election, Georgian Jimmy Carter (Dem.) defeated Gerald Ford, the Republican candidate. This was the first year that women were admitted into the U.S. Military Academies as students. In 1977, James E. Carter was inaugurated as President of the United States. The winter, one of the most severe the country had experienced in many years, was complicated by a fuel shortage. Bert Lance, Carter ' s budget director, resigned when a scandal was raised about his questionable banking practices. Inflation, the plague of the 70 ' s, continued in 1978, accompanied by the devaluation of the dollar on the world market. Peace in the Middle East seemed very near after Prime Minister Menahem Begin of Israel and President Anwar Sadat of Egypt met at Camp David with President Carter. In July, Louise Brown, the first " test tube baby, " was born in England. 1979, the seventies were coming to an end. In many ways, the public was much calmer and subdued. But once again the people were revolting — this time it was the middle classes rising against government spending and taxes. What a difference. Changes In the future, the 1970 ' s will be remembered as the years when Atlanta became a " Big city. " During these years the " Big Peach " grew up and out. Construction increased both downtown and on the outskirts, with each new building either taller or more modern than the last. Highways, for example 1-285, were outgrown almost as soon as they were completed. Colony Square and the Omni International were examples of a trend that went one step further than the shopping center. These complexes included hotels, restaurants, specialty stores, and business offices. The newest and most spectacular of Atlanta ' s hotels was the Peachtree Plaza. Inevitably, all of this construction resulted in some destruction. The Fox Theatre was almost sold to Southern Bell, so Bell could tear it down and erect a new building there. But the public outcry was so great that a " Save the Fox " campaign was launched, resulting in a last minute rescue. Southern Bell proceeded to construct its office building in a nearby parking lot. The coming of MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) caused upheaval and inconveniences all along the construction route. Here in Decatur, MARTA brought many problems. Small businesses near the square lost customers because of a lack of parking, and many suffered from cracked walls and foundations. MARTA also disrupted residential areas. An example of this was Sycamore Street, an older area revitalized by younger couples and their families. The entry of MARTA resulted in the loss of this neighborhood atmosphere. Although changes in Atlanta had both positive and negative aspects, there was no doubt that the city grew by leaps and bounds, becoming more than ever " the Capital of the South. " 4 Changes u u u Changes Changes Construction sites have been familiar scenes here at Scott in the last years and have played an important role in the modernizing of campus facilities. A retrospective glance will provide the Scottie with insight into how the college has changed over the past decade. Between 1975 and 1976, McCain Library was renovated and remodeled for greater shelf space and for convenience of the students. The three main floors of the building were totally redone. In 1977, the flagpole in the Quad was erected to honor Dr. Henry Robinson, past chairman of the Mathematics Department. The school year of 1977-78 was the last year that cottages were used as housing for boarding students. The poor physical condition of the houses made it more feasible for the college to tear them down than to repair them. During the summer after the 1977 session, the tennis courts received the resurfacing they so badly needed. But the biggest undertaking since the library changes has been the renovation of Buttrick. At the end of the 1977-78 session, the faculty had to move out of the building, on the understanding that they would return in September. However during the course of the summer, difficulties arose. It was discovered that walls needed to be moved and ceilings required special holes. When preparing a shaft for the new elevator, the workers drilled into granite. Therefore, only administrative offices remained in Buttrick, professors had offices in the infirmary, History 305 met in the basement of Walters, and the bookstore and the Post office were relocated permanently to the Lower Dining Hall. When the renovations have been completed, all of Buttrick will be air conditioned, faculty offices and classrooms redesigned, and seminar and viewing rooms constructed. Thus, the attempt to improve the atmosphere for learning on campus will have been carried a step further. Change To see how far we have come, first we must look back to see where we once stood. The following, taken from the ASC Handbook of 1969, shows us just how much we have changed in ten short years: Agnes Scott College does not approve the use of alcoholic beverages by students enrolled in the college; Agnes Scott students are not to visit men ' s living quarters (hotels, motels, apartments, etc.) individually or in groups except under circumstances which, in the judgement of the Dean of Students, assure adequate protection to the students and to the good name of the college; Areas in which smoking is not permitted: Buttrick, Dana, Campbell, Library, Observatory, Gymnasium, Dining Hall, Infirmary, Dormitories, and Faculty Offices; There must be three or more students to walk together into Decatur after the afternoon time limit and two or more to go to P by C or Watson ' s. Afternoon time limit, set by Judicial Council, specified the hour at which students must be back on campus unless accompanied by a date or chaperone. All students are under the curfew of 11:45 p.m. on weekdays and 1:00 a.m. on weekend nights — Fall Quarter Freshmen must be accompanied by chaperones; Sunday dress is appropriate for the noon meal in the Dining Hall on Sunday; Sport ' s attire is defined as slacks and bermuda shorts and may not be worn in the following places: First Buttrick, Art galleries in Dana, and First Main, First floor of the Library, Faculty and Administration offices, classes, and science and art labs; Changes ff r %4 SllHOUKTT :6B Freshmen may not keep cars on or off campus under any circumstances and Spring-quarter sophomores maintaining an average of 1.00, with permission from parents may have cars on campus; Number of social engagements allowed: Freshmen — three a week (no borrowing), Sophomores — three a week and four a week Spring Quarter, Juniors and Seniors — unlimited; Everyone must sign in and out at the Dean of Student ' s Office; Campus dates must be registered in the campus date book in the Dean of Student ' s Office; Permission from parents is needed from all students for the following social privileges: riding a motorcycle or other two- wheeled motorized vehicle, riding in cars in Atlanta or vicinity, going home or making out-of-town trips by bus, train, plane, or car, making trips related to academic work and sponsored by a department of the college, making trips to attend church-sponsored weekend conferences, participating in water sports at off-campus recreational areas in and near Atlanta, driving a car, horseback riding, attending fraternity houseparties at Georgia Tech or Emory University; Invitations are necessary for overnight absences and must be filed in the Dean of Student ' s Office; All phone calls are limited to five minutes, after which the operator has the right to ask that the call be discontinued (all phones at the time were connected to the Agnes Scott switchboard); In order to cut a class, an academic average of a C was necessary. Whew! — This was Agnes Scott in 1969 — Could you have survived? 9 Changes A piece of your Past... Going to class . . . blind dates . . . writing papers . . . partying on weekends . . . looking for mail . . . practical jokes . . . going to meetings . . . complaining about too much work . . . popcorn parties . . . washing clothes . . . This could be Agnes Scott at any time from the 1940 ' s up to the present. The basic style of life here has not changed much. A group of over 500 girls in their late teens to early twenties usually tend to have the same general habits and interests. So how will the year 1978-79 be distinguished from others? The attitude of college students in the late 70 ' s was one of concern for the future. At Scott, more and more students were intending to begin a career or attend graduate school after graduation. A large number of seniors took advantage of resume ' and interview workshops sponsored by the Career Planning Office. Many students were interested in becoming and remaining physically fit. The newest fad was running or jogging. At all hours of the day and night, Scotties could be seen circling the basketball court, the hockey field, or the campus. Of course, most students were concerned with more than their health and careers. After all, who could or would forget the weekend? TGIF parties expanded onto the grass in front of the Hub, indicating the growing popularity of beer parties on campus. Those who could not wait for Friday began celebrating as early as Wednesday or Thursday night with trips to PJ ' s or Moe ' s and Joe ' s. Saturday night was the time for disco parties on campus, the result of a dance craze that topped even beach music. 11 Changes Just a few years ago, Dorm Councils had become lax and enforced few rules, there were no men in the dorms, the Board of Student Activities did little other than approve beer parties, and not many people were aware of the Student Government Committees on campus. However, the past two years have shown a change in our student government. The force compelling this renewed activity came mainly from the leaders of the various boards and committees, and was supported by student interest in effective government. Many changes had been coming about gradually. Representative Council had worked on various RC ' s since 1976-77 concerning the alcoholic beverage policy. Last spring Rep came up with a bill providing for a special room in each dorm where students could store and drink alcoholic beverages. This fall, Rep gave preliminary approval to an RC that extended parietals to Saturday afternoons. Last year the Library Committee persuaded the Library to extend its hours from 10:30 to 11:45 pm each quarter during the last week of classes. After spring elections in 1977, Interdorm and Dorm Councils worked together to revise penalties and to encourage enforcement of rules. Workshops were held to train Dorm Council members to work effectively with other students on their halls. At the same time, the Board of Student Activities (BSA) was being re-evaluated. The size was cut down to a core group which evaluated all the boards on campus. Their conclusions helped to define and revitaHze other groups governing the student body. 12 Changes ' mm.

" Although it seemingly would not effect us, a majority of the students expressed an interest and concern for the future of the college. Most concluded it was very unlikely that men would attend Agnes Scott as full time students. Then, what changes would the coming years bring to Agnes Scott College? Physical changes will continue to be made. After the completion of Buttrick, the next project will probably be the construction of a new gym and track on the land behind the Physical Plant. The old gym will become a student center. Out of necessity, the curriculum will also be adjusted and updated as some courses become obsolete and a need for others arises. However, the course of study will continue to be firmly based in the liberal arts. In other words. Interior Decorating 101 will not be among the new classes offered. As customs and morals change, the rules governing student life at Scott will have to move with the times. Each student will most likely be given the freedom to determine her own social rules and regulations. The future may include open dorms and other developments which would shock graduates of an earlier, stricter time. As the cost of a college education continues to rise, many changes will be instigated by students demanding that the college meet their needs. Even so, the adaptations will not be too drastic. One can realistically expect to return for her thirtieth year reunion and be able to point to Main and say, " That ' s where I lived my senior year 15 Changes " - v Cuf rtnulxxm ■r -- i- ? ivi 1 " f 1 y 9- j uk H L V l f -, • Bjg} jhH Hki M i N Htks ' i 1 T» ,y.

Well, the curriculum had been updated in the past year or so, but this course obviously did not fit into the liberal arts structure. The courses that had been added either expanded into new areas of old subject matter, covered entirely new topics, or presented old materials on a different level than had been offered before. The adjustments were made in an attempt to meet the changing needs of the students. A major addition to the curriculum was the Preparatory Program for Business. The program was a grouping of courses in several disciplines, which combined would provide a student with skills and knowledge helpful in seeking jobs in businesses. The program did not constitute a major. Only two new courses were involved — Marketing and Advanced Composition. In the spring of 1978, the Economics and Sociology Department was divided into two separate organizations. Also, the Economics Department purchased a small computer at the beginning of the year to use in simulations. Although many of its changes had been widely noticed. Economics was not the only area to offer new courses. Freshmen and Sophomore Seminars, intended to acquaint underclassmen with upper level seminar classes, were offered this year in Art, Bible and Religion, Chemistry, and Music. Many courses in the Music and the Sociology departments were redesigned and renamed. The Classics Department established a class in classical archeology, and non-biology majors could take a basic course in genetics and evolution. All of these new offerings made it possible for the student to broaden her horizons even further, often in areas unrelated to her major. 17 Changes cMusic Theodore Mathews 18 Faculty Noteworthy in the Music Depart- ment is soprano Jean Lemonds, Agnes Scott ' s new instructor in voice. Mrs. Lemonds ' musical bacicground is var- ied; she studied violin at Westminster Choir College and at the Juilliard School. At Westminster she was also required to study voice and thus began her interest in what is now her field of expertise. A well-known soloist in the Atlanta area, Mrs. Lemonds has given many solo recitals and has performed with Emory University, the Atlanta Symphony, the Atlanta Choral Guild, and the Augusta Symphony. She con- tinues to teach part-time at Emory Uni- versity. In addition to her musical activities,- Mrs. Lemonds enjoys " playing house " and baby-sitting her grandchildren, but she adds, " It takes an awful lot of time to be a musician! " Mrs. Lemonds not only finds the in- tellectual atmosphere at Agnes Scott challenging but also enjoys lighter ac- tivities such as Black Cat, Junior Jaunt, and Blackfriars ' productions. She takes great delight in being a part of the Ag- nes Scott community and thanks stu- dents for including her, saying, " You make me feel like one of you! " Raymond Martin 1 Steven Hall Steven Griffith Leland Staven John Toth 19 Faculty CLASSICS JoAllen Bradham 20 Faculty Margaret Pepperdene eNQLisb David Barton An English professor can consider herself fully initiated to life at Scott when the elevators in the library stop functioning on the very two weekends that she grades papers and checks foot- note references. Such an initiation oc- curred to Dr. Anne Warner who recent- ly joined the English Department at Agnes Scott College. She teaches Eng- lish 101 and Advanced Composition. Dr. Warner received her B.A. and M.A. degrees at Hollins College then went on to complete her Ph.D. in Eng- lish at Emory in 1977. Before getting her degree, she held various jobs includ- ing editorial assistant for a business magazine and copy editor for a four- man advertising firm. Her husband is a portfolio manager at the Trust Com- pany Bank, and they have two daugh- ters. Dr. Warner finds the students here competent and curious. She likes the sense of community that a small college affords and is most impressed with the strong academic program Agnes Scott maintains despite demographic and economic pressures. 21 Faculty SpanisI? Eloise Herbert Constance Shaw Dr. Gordon McNeer, an easy-going and lively bachelor, was influenced to study Spanish by his Mexican grand- mother. He graduated from Princeton in 1965 and taught at the University of Florida from 1970 to 1972, where he received the Best Teacher Award. He returned to Princeton in 1976 to earn his Ph.D. He has lived and travelled extensively in Spain, acting as a transla- tor and working in a Spanish bank. Dr. McNeer ' s arrival at Agnes Scott evolved rather unexpectedly. He had come to Atlanta originally to fill a posi- tion at Georgia Tech, but when that job failed to materialize, he spent a year frantically applying to colleges in the area while his bank account dwindled. Fortunately, he secured a job here in the Spanish Department and is glad to be at Scott. 22 Faculty Ingrid Wieshofer Gunther Bicknese German Huguette Kaiser 23 Faculty Gus Cochran, Assistant Professor of Political Science, has not seen too many changes in his six years at Agnes Scott, with the exception of more relaxed so- cial regulations. He notes that the liber- al arts are thriving, but feels that we are perhaps too defensive toward career orientation. Mr. Cochran thinks that the College has a more open attitude toward internships; he finds this very encouraging, for internships are like labs for political science students. In comparing today ' s Agnes Scott stu- dents to those in years past, Mr. Coch- ran points out that students today are less clustered and have a wider range of abilities. They need, however, to have more decision-making responsibility. In addition, faculty members should en- courage students to get involved in ac- tivities on and off campus. Mr. Cochran has a new role this year; he is a very proud father! Since daugh- ter Molly keeps odd hours, sleep has become a rare and precious commodity for him. In addition to his busy family life, he enjoys tennis and jogging. Steven Haworth 24 Faculty Mildred Petty Michael Brown Geraldine Meroney 25 Faculty Alice Cunningham 26 Faculty Julia Gary Arthur Bowling The new face in the Bradley Observa- tory is that of Robert Hyde, Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Educated first at Col- gate, Mr. Hyde studied Physics at the University of New Hampshire and As- tronomy at Penn State. His scientific interests and activities have been var- ied; he has been involved with the space program at New Hampshire, thermo- nuclear research at Boulder, Colorado; solar flare projects at Penn State, radio astronomy, plasma physics, and theo- retical math. Mr. Hyde is impressed with the intel- lectual atmosphere at Agnes Scott as well as with our strong honor system. He notes a commitment to the institu- tion on the part of both faculty and students. In addition, he feels that there is a strong sense of community at Agnes Scott, promoted by the closeness among faculty members and their inter- est in and dedication to the students and the college as a whole, rather than just to their major field. Mr. Hyde finds the women at Agnes Scott intense stu- dents who are willing to work. When not in the classroom, Mr. Hyde enjoys many of the cultural events offered at Agnes Scott with his wife and daughters. In his opinion, the wide range of events on campus provide excellent opportunities for a family and for the community at large. 27 Faculty " Anytime you choose a discipline, you learn a lot about yourself. Like mountain climbing, you discover your abilities to persevere and your motiva- tions, and you understand your rela- tionship to other people. " As Donald Young has travelled from one teaching experience to another, he ' s been forming this definition of educa- tion. Beginning by teaching math and physics in the Navy, he continued in this field as he secured his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Virginia. He then spent three years at the Uni- versity of South Carolina. Is it strange to find such a " university " man here at ASC? No, not since he has " always dreamed of a liberal arts education and the opportunity to work closely with his stu dents. " He relishes the intellectually significant questions that his students ask and considers ASC his " most re- warding educational experience. " " If I feel isolated, I ' m unhappy. " He describes the campus as being close knit. As a bachelor originally from Ar- lington, Virginia, and now separated from his " spread out " family, he re- gards teaching as a large part of his life. In view of the future, he does not want to see ASC become too career oriented, but does feel that the faculty and ad- ministration need to be aware of the outside world in order to be able to incorporate the best of that world into the structure of Agnes Scott.

She is a native Atlantan who has spent her adult years in the North- east and California. For the last 12 years she has been affiliated with the American Institute for Research in the Behavioral Sciences. During the past few years she has also been studying at two universities where she earned two master ' s degrees. She is presently com- pleting her dissertation for the Ph.D. from Stanford University. Mrs. Dillman likes to create the at- mosphere of a seminar in her classes. The students are expected to partici- pate, and Mrs. Dillman feels it is impor- tant that issues relevant to the students ' lives be interwoven with her course to- pics. Both Mrs. Dillman and her hus- band like being a part of the college community and enjoy participating in campus life. gnE IDLDEy Connie Jones 31 Faculty mil n D Mary Sheats Richard Parry David Behan 32 Faculty Richard Parry, Associate Professor of Piiilosophy, very nearly became a lawyer. Accepted into both Georgetown University ' s law school and the Univer- sity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill ' s graduate school, he chose the latter and received his Ph.D. in Philosophy. Mr. Parry has taught at Agnes Scott for twelve years and believes that courses in Philosophy help students learn to think independently. As they learn, stu- dents should strive for intellectual pos- session of themselves. Dedicated to the liberal arts, Mr. Parry thinks that liber- al learning and careers can go hand in hand. He is very much in favor of the idea of pre-professional committees to provide direction for studerlts interest- ed in certain careers. Mr. Parry notes that current students are bright, dili- gent, and idealistic, but at times too passive and lacking in self direction. Having grown up in Atlanta, Mr. Parry enjoys the city ' s cultural events, such as the symphony and the theater. However, most of his time ouside the classroom is spent with his family; chil- dren Matthew and Amy keep him " three feet under most of the time! " 0h» A PHU05DPHS 1 Gue ' Hudson Write legtoly Margaret Ammons 33 Faculty 34 Administration Staff At the close of a decade two emo- tions exist, an awe for the swift passage of time and a hope for the new decade. For President Perry, this period in- cludes the dual responsibility of evalu- ating the past and preparing for the future. In response to the violent and confus- ing age of the sixties, the seventies were generally apathetic or, at least, intro- verted. However, President Perry feels that Agnes Scott escaped the extremes of the age. Specifically, as outlined by the President in his Annual Report, the college has viewed academic, physical, economical, and social changes during his five complete years at Agnes Scott. The faculty has been awarded more fringe benefits, and the administration has been reorganized. Born in the sev- enties, the Return to College program has increased each year. Career-mind- ed students can now apply themselves to the business preparation course, and Financial Aid provides over seventy percent of the student body with aid. Air conditioning blesses the fortunate dorm, Winship, as well as the audito- riums of Presser, and the renovation of the library met with enthusiastic ap- proval of the students. Being modern women, the students of Agnes Scott have altered their life styles with the privileges of parietals and a more liber- al drinking policy. In short, the years have been a steady, progressive transi- tion from the sixties to the future eight- ies. To President Perry, " It ' s almost a cliche ' to say that the eighties will be tough. " The population of eighteen year olds will be smaller. As the col- lege-age person chooses a school, she tends to be drawn toward highly tech- nological institutions with career assur- ances. Still, the President remains opti- mistic, but aware of the difficulties and problems. At the same time, Agnes Scott finds strength in its past as a lib- eral arts college, a tradition that has survived over two hundred years and, in the President ' s words, has " shown itself to be a tough and hardy breed.

The end of Freshmen Orientation . . almost the middle of fall quarter . . . the best weekend of the year . . . No matter how one chose to look at it, Black Cat was, as it always seems to be, a highlight of each Scottie ' s year. Though very different from the Black Cat days of 50 years ago, Black Cat 1978 generated that ageless feeling of excitement and unity throughout the Agnes Scott community Black Cat, sponsored by Mortar Board, officially began on Thursday night with the traditional bonfire. Unofficially, however, the Black Cat spirit has been growing for weeks. 50 Limelight Singing in the dining hall — " We love yfou Seniors . . . , " water balloons, lewspapered doors, and shoes lined up " rom Presser to Buttrick were some ndication that Black Cat was just iround the corner. The Freshmen class af ' 82 had chosen their mascot and Jwith some help from their sister class of Keystone Cops), were trying to keep it a secret. Meanwhile, the sophomore Yellow Pages, aided by their sister Jiminy Crickets, attempted to discover the new freshmen mascot. The bonfire was a time of reckoning for everyone. Each class tried to outshout the other in hopes of winning the Spirit Award. Next was the Song Competition as each class sang their Sister Class Song around the " roaring " bonfire. And finally, the Sophomores successfully guessed the new freshmen mascot. " Yes Chuck, the mascot for the the Class of 1982 is Peppermint Patty! " 51 Limelight WHAT ' S THE GOOD WORD? Friday was a combination of academia and fun. Though white-faced felines silently crept from class to class giving the OK for class dismissal, most Scotties found themselves remaining in class listening to good-natured professors. When 4 p.m. came around, however, the Black Cat festivities began again — this time on the hockey field. Each class, adorned in costume, supported their teams. After an indecisive hockey match, the other games began. Crickets and Cops vied in the egg toss, just as the Pages and Peppermints fought in the tug-of-war. 52 Limelight Seniors and Freshmen alike ran about with innertubes and everyone enjoyed the annual pie-eating contest and the new mystery event. Following the games, dinner (fried chicken, of course) and brew were served in the amphitheater as students, professors, and friends sat on the grass and enjoyed being together. Friday night, the Black Cat Production was put on by the Junior Class. Before the production, the winners of the competitions were announced. Taking the overall Black Kitty Award was the Sophomore Class. Next, doing a sp oof of " Oklahoma, " the Juniors presented a hilarious parody of life at ASC called " Scott ' s- Your-Homa. " Following the production, a party was held in the Quad, complete with hot apple cider and pumpkins. 53 Limelight PEPPERMINT PATTY! With the climax of Black Cat over, many Scotties headed to the dorms for quick shag and disco lessons before the Black Cat Dance Saturday night. Hall fashion shows and magazine makeovers abounded as everyone tried to look their best for their dates. (Alas for those who had not snatched up a man!). The dance Saturday night, sponsored by Social Council, was held in the Atlanta Hilton. To the sound of " Staircase, " Scotties danced in close quarters to varied music — beach, disco, and bluegrass. 54 Limelight With hors d ' oeuvres and flashbulbs everywhere, many folks crammed into hotel rooms rented by 20 couples for further partying. With no curfew Saturday night, the Freshmen felt like freed convicts! Sunday marked the end of Black Cat, complete with dead corsages and Pepto Bismal. At dinner on Sunday, folk singers played as Scotties began to look ahead to the coming weeks of study and midterms. To most students. Black Cat was a welcome break in the quarter. For the Freshmen, Black Cat marked not only the end of orientation, but also, the beginning of being a class together. After being oriented and reoriented, they now belonged as a part of Agnes Scott. To all Scotties, new and old, Black Cat was a special time of togetherness and a happy memory for the future. 55 Limelight . • " ' I ' m sure that many people over the course of their years at Agnes Scott have wondered why in blue blazes a nice, innocent, quiet Scottie would want to be subjected to the less-than-amorous, often ribald, at- tentions of forty males at a fraternity on a nearby campus. To understand, one first had to revise the descrip- tion of the typical Little Sister. Generally, if a girl was a Little Sister, she was not necessarily quiet or inno- cent. It was virtually impossible to be around a crowd of screaming males and remain naive. If a girl was a Little Sister, most likely she was outgoing, friendly, enjoyed partying and could hold her own in drinking contests with the brothers. Few, if any, girls were chosen as steadying influence. Most had been chosen by a fraternity because they showed a true ability to get along with the brothers, a willingness to work and help the house, and in addition, presented a good impression to those entering the fraternity for the first time. The girls, in return, received the benefit of male companionship — a valuable commodity seeing as males were few and far between at Agnes Scott — and a social outlet. Granted, some girls might get into the fraternity scene in order to gain a name or reputa- tion for themselves, but few lasted at a fraternity unless they could truly get along and relate with the brothers. In the long run, then, those girls at Agnes Scott who associated with fraternities at Georgia Tech and Emory — including Lambda Chi, Figi, Del- ta Tau Delta, Sigma Nu, Sigma Chi, Alpha Epsilon Pi, Sigma Epsilon, Alpha Theta Omega, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and Phi Kappa Tau — strengthened our ties with our neighboring schools, as well as gained a source of personal amusement and activity. Perhaps it would seem that by virtue of Agnes Scott ' s situation as a small, private women ' s liberal arts college, the school would have only attracted a certain type of student. If so, she would have been born and raised in the South, she would speak with a magnolia blossom accent, and she would empathize strongly with Scarlett O ' Hara in Gone With The Wind. However, just as Agnes Scott did not represent merely the southeastern United States in its student body structure, it also was not limited in its world- wide student culture. By the 1978-79 school year, Agnes Scott had become " home " to more than twenty foreign stu- dents, a large number considering the size of the student body. This group was composed of a smattering of cultures from all around the world. As usual, there were the foreign language hall assistants in French and German. The Rotary Clubs sponsored four students for a year apiece from such diverse places as Norway, Germany, and South Africa. South and Central America also had their share of representatives as students from Panama, Venezuela, and Brazil came for four years at Agnes Scott. And, of course, Asia was well repre- sented. With one student from Ceylon and a dozen or more Malaysians, one was surrounded by Eastern culture. But, no matter where these girls were from, their presence added a new dimension to Agnes Scott socially, culturally, as well as educationally. W- ' ' ' Wkr tf !! l ? ■WW - I 1 1 n? i I ! 1 W They were here, there, everywhere! In the li- brary, on the athletic field, in the labs, in the Hub, . . . they were the Return to College Stu- dents (RTC ' s) — 55 strong and growing in more ways than you could imagine. They came in all sizes and shapes. Some were young, not much older than the traditional students, and some were only young at heart. Their interests varied as much as their descriptions. Chrissy was an English major. Angle did an independent study in psychology. Jo and Lilian spent most of their time in Danr, and if you looked downstairs you would find Gloria, turning a mean potters wheex. Nina was hoping to be accepted to medical school next year. Patsy studied math and mar- keting, and some like Gail, wish they knew what they might be when they grew up! It wasn ' t easy. Ask Beth what it was like to hold down a job and carry 16 hours. Have Joan tell you what she did when four kids were down with the flu and it was exam week. Ask Harriet and Carol how it felt to go back after 30 years away from the books. Scary? You bet! Do not let anyone tell you they did not operate in the real world! They may not have had parents to answer to, but they had someone even tougher, themselves. They were among the first to ask questions in class, among the first to volunteer a helping hand. They cried sometimes, and laughed more often, especially at themselves. They were caring, sharing, and perhaps most of all, proud and happy to be part of Agnes Scott. 61 Limelight ' i r Key aspects of the Independent Study program were its opportunities for exploration, creativity, and growth. An independent gave the student an opportunity for explora- tion through thorough research and carefully controlled experiments. The Independent Study program also allowed a student to be creative in choosing a topic, in finding a unique approach, and in developing a project or paper. The course of study was independent and unstructured, allowing a student to create her own course of study. Topics were as varied as the people who chose them and included subjects such as the concept of innocence in Faulkner ' s novels, the government of the Phillippines, music in the works of Alex- ander Pope, or tumors in plants. Student displayed creativ- ity in developing a unique approach to their subjects. They met the challenge of finding something new and exciting to say. At the end of her study a student produced a project or paper connected with her research. This project stood by itself as a creative work, something of which the student could be proud. The Independent Study program was final- ly a program which furthered academic and intellectual growth. Through independent work a student developed her research skills, both academic and scientific. In writing her final paper she became more adept at presenting her ideas logically and clearly. Working on her own outside of the structured classroom setting required that a student devel- op self-discipline. Independent study also allowed a student to develop a working relationship with a professor who served as her advisor. Both students and professors found this aspect of the program exciting and stimulating, as they exchanged ideas and worked together as colleagues. Final- ly, an Independent Study enabled the liberal arts student to acquire a deep knowledge of her chosen topic. She became an expert on her subject. More importantly, she made a contribution to scholarship in her chosen field. Each stu- dent who completed the program of Independent Study could take pride in her project and in her growth as a scholar and an individual. Another type of special program available to Juniors and Seniors was the internship. This program allowed a student to further her knowledge in a certain area, and to apply the knowledge she had gained to a job situation. The Legisla- tive Internship during winter quarter was one type of pro- gram offered. Two students, majoring either in History or Political Science, were selected to work closely with certain members of the Georgia Assembly. Many students were able to design their own internship with a professor ' s ap- proval. MTL h1L.1 3i l iiM I ft ? ii ' " M i AX, . I 4r x " . " - ' •.. . S p ' The main objective of Agnes Scott College is to provide for the education of women in the disciplines of the liberal arts. To accomplish this goal, Agnes Scott had to rely on support from many different offices and departments. The contributions made by offices such as the Dean of Faculty, Dean of Students, and the various academic departments were easily recognized and appreciated. However, many other offices involved in the line of support did not always receive the attention they merited. One such office was that of Security. The Security Office saw its job as providing support for whatever needed to be done to accomplish the goal of the education of women here at Scott. Security was able to provide this sup- port by establishing the atmosphere of a safe environ- ment in which the student could be expected to achieve her highest potential for learning and knowl- edge. The Security Office strove to make the environ- ment safe not only from crime, but also from physical hazards such as fire. The seven full-time members and the three part-time members of the security force used visibility as their biggest weapon against crime. They based their work on the belief that crime was less likely to occur in areas that people knew were watched and patrolled. The Security Office viewed the passage of the new key policy as a step on the students ' part toward promoting a safe environment, and they would like to see more initiative taken on the part of the students. Security was also a vital party of daily life on cam- pus. Security guards opened doors for those who for- got keys and escorted students across campus late at night. They were our resident auto mechanics — help- ing to change tires and start " dead " cars. Security was with us around the clock serving as helpers and friends. Indeed, they were a vital part of our support system of educators. c Honor Court If Chairman: Sarah Windham Vice-Chairman: Aria Spencer Secretary: Jenny Spencer The cornerstone of Agnes Scott . . .

Requests for appearances were taken mainly from the school de- partments. During the 1978-79 school year, the Lecture Committee sponsored, or helped to sponsor, people from diverse areas of interest. Eudora Welty ap- peared on campus once again as a part of the freshmen orientation program. In October, Elizabeth Hardwick, noted journalist and editor of the New York Review of Books, spoke in Dana. The Atlanta Chamber Players performed in early January, and the Guarneri String Quartet returned in February. Joseph Campbell, philosopher and mytholo- gist, spoke in February, as well.

One tiny speck of dust clings to another, the two of them to still another, again, again. Bang, the Earth exists in this endless nothingless. As more dust unites, more earths occur. Dust institutes man with the Earth. Man gazes outward toward the gloomy space. He perceives his home as he perceives what isn ' t. Man searches for what isn ' t there: a task with which he cannot cope. His parts loosen in his creative body, in his empty soul. Man unites with the Earth. The blue-green Earth whirls about, speckled by man, in search of motives for its whirling. Dust is blown away in the chase, particles trailing along behind, more, more. Space.

Clark would have been the last member of this faculty to have wanted his virtues extolled in public, for he was a modest and humble man. He would have much preferred that we be about our business of instilling in students, as well as in faculty, a devotion to the purposes of Agnes Scott Col- lege and a genuine love of learning, which characterized his life. These missions were primary in his professional life as a chemist and an educator. In some way, however, it gives us comfort and new direction to remind ourselves of the many fine qualities which made this man a very special person to all who knew him. As a teacher, he was thorough, but realistic in his expecta- tions; he was demanding, but patient with his students ' strug- gles; he was serious, but jovial in conveying the fun and excite- ment of chemistry. Marion Clark was respected and admired by his fellow faculty members not only for his abilities as a chemist and as a teacher, but also for his personal traits of wisdom, honesty, compassion, good humor, and steadfastness in upholding the principles to which he ascribed. He was open-minded and judicious, but always adamant about upholding those princi- ples which he felt were the foundations of a good education and personal integrity. Each of us who knew Marion Clark was aware that he was a loving and caring friend, a devoted husband and father, and a Christian man whose every action reflected his deep belief in God. We are grateful for his presence among us and shall treasure the legacy he has left to us.

Classes held in the basement of Walters or in the heights of fourth Campbell, profes- sors who apparently knew everything about their subjects, course work that cov- ered volumes in one quarter often came as a jolt to freshmen. While classes went on (and on and on), there was also Scott ' s dorm life to tackle — how to choose one of " I never knew I could learn so much in such a short time. " 29 possible dorm room arrangements, or ignore Inman ' s heating-percussion system, for example. Together with new-found roommates, freshmen gathered loads of first-year memories: convocation proces- sions of faculty in caps and gowns, even- ings spent with friends in Atlanta or alone in the stacks of McCain, freezing morn- ings and icy sidewalks, excitement at get- ting back the first quarter ' s grades. The class of 1982 shared it all. 113 Freshmen Jan Jackson Allison James Ashley Jeffries Martha Jenison Lee Johnson Sharon Johnson Annie Julian Joy Lyn Jun Julia Keller Melissa Kelly Marcia Kichler Lee Kite Anne Leake Katie Lewis Gretchen Lindsay Vanessa Lingerfelt Marge Long Deborah Love Becky Lowrey Joanie Mackey Diane Malis Melody Mann Meredith Manning Marie Marchand Teace Markwalter Tobi Martin Susan Mead Kitty Medaglia Mona Mendoza Meg Miller 114 Freshmen The Experience Of Black Cat If Agnes Scott ' s annual Black Cat festivities can be said to be for any one class, then they must surely be for the freshmen. Halloween ' s explosion of en- ergy, intrigue, and fun crowds the " cocky new girls ' " initiation into col- lege life and establishes them firmly as part of the student body. Working with their sister class of Keystone Cops and behind Peppermint Patty (their new " It ' s a great experience. Black Cat makes us fit into the college community. " new mascot), the Class of 1982 gradual- ly drew its members closer to each oth- er. By October 20 — a day devoted to pie-eating, egg-throwing, and tug o ' war, the traditional rivalry with the sophomores had unified Scott ' s Fresh- men and made them a force to be reck- oned with in field day competition. The tension ended harmoniously, however, with the Black Cat formal dance where upper and underclassmen alike cele- brated fall ' s excitement. 115 Freshmen The Freshmen Year Challenge Choices: Shall I go out tonight or finish calculus? Should I write my term paper on women in professional or traditional roles? Will I have time to be a Blackfriar if I have two labs a week? Dilemmas like these gripped every student occasionally, but for inexperienced souls, they seemed to crop up twice as often and were more difficult to solve. In their study of schedule-jug- gling, Scott freshmen could try all- nighters, osmosis, anything to get their work done. The challenge was to learn ma- " The challenges of writing papers, working in 3-hour labs, plus the work required of us keeps us going. " terial thoroughly — and quickly. There were also social adjustments to be made in adapting to college life. The exercise of a new independence and degree of participa- tion in the campus activities were deci- sions as important as academic ones. Be- ing a freshman and a student at Agnes Scott meant growing intellectually and emotionally.

Freshmen Are Good Sports Since six quarters of physical education are required at Agnes Scott, the joys of being a freshman included refining and developing her athletic prowess. Though restricted in the fall to field hockey, dance, and swimming, freshmen soon branched out into other areas. They soon undertook fencing tennis, camping, golf, riding, bas- ketball, and badminton. The success, " Well, there are certainly enough sports to choose from and keep everybody happy. " pride, and pain (at using inactive muscles) of sports complemented academic pro- gress. In many ways, Agnes Scott was a truly competitive place. 119 Freshmen ■« ' 1S4 ' Yellow Pages, Black Kitty: What a Team! The Sophomore Class was rather pleased with itself when it met Peppermint Patty long before she was ready to make her debut on the Agnes Scott Campus. It felt different to be on the other end of the pranks and each sophomore prided herself in being witty and cagey as she tried to discover the Freshman Class mascot. Spir- its were high and the excitement the Soph- omore Class felt was expressed in the mas- cot song which included a fancy dance step. The Senior Class added their two " Black Cat gives us a chance to get to know the new freshmen. " cents in with the Sophomore Class and the two united against the freshmen in fun and pranks. Black Cat was topped by the win- ning of the Black Kitty Award — an honor deserved and much appreciated. r 120 Sophomores Lee Ann Chupp Leigh Clifford Kelley Coble Jeanne Cole hEI F % h 1 I B rr ' -.

These areas were broad enough to include something for every taste. A favorite among the Sophomore Class seemed to be Dance Group, with a little over a fourth of the group comprised of sophomores. Singing appeared to run a close second to dancing, and a large num- ber of sophomores participated in the Glee " I ' ve got so much to do these days. I NEVER have time to study. " Club and other musical groups. Other ac- tivities which appealed to the Class of 1981 were Dolphin Club, the Profile, hockey and tennis teams, SGA commit- tees. Language Clubs, and practically ev- ery other activity on campus. The Yellow Pages were not an apathetic or lethargic group. In addition to activities at Scott, many sophomores became involved in off-cam- pus activities and, of course, Georgia Tech. 124 Sophomores Joyce Ludvigsen Laura McCrary Kathleen McCunniff Lynda McDonald Bess McDonald Martha McGaughey Shannon Perrin Carol Petty Gina Philips Lucia Rawls Lydia Reasor Ruth Ann Relyea 125 Sophomores ;fH| H ■ ■|H ,MM 1 KM iT I ■ • ' Martha Sheppard Karen Whipple Lynda Wimberly Susan Winn Terri Wong Nellie Yeoh Debra Yoshimura 126 Sophomores You Mean It ' s Time To Decide Already? What is the average Agnes Scott stu- dent looking for? Some students come to Scott with an idea of which direction they plan to point their studies, but after a year of the core courses, this direction may ei- ther be modified or changed altogether. This spring, it was the Yellow Pages ' turn to make this big decision. A popular major for many rising juniors turned out to be the sciences. Biology and Chemistry are very popular, with Mathematics and Phys- ics drawing renewed interest. Other popu- lar majors for the class of 198 1 seem to be, as always, English, History, Art, French, and other foreign languages. A small num- ber are pursuing Economics, Political Sci- ence, and Music. And, some sophomores " That sounds like a good major. Maybe I ' ll try that one. " very ambitiously designed their own ma- jors. International Relations and Medieval Studies are just examples of the students creativity and aspirations. 127 Sophomores Starting Our Second Half When Juniors return in the fall, they are shocked to find their class radically reduced in number. In spite of the re- duction, class officers search for dedi- cated Juniors to volunteer for commit- tees. True, there are fewer Juniors, but the work never decreases over the sum- mer months. Certainly this year ' s offi- cers, Sandy Burson, president; Susan Dodson, vice-president; and Lisa Bes- wick, secretary treasurer; felt the bur- " Being halfway through is relieving. " den of unifying the Junior class, but, fortunately, they did not fight the battle alone. The Advisory Council took over the responsibilities of class communica- tions. Inspiring class enthusiasm and participation in activities was the most challenging and time consuming task for the council. In winter quarter, the Junior class faced the prospect of organizing an imaginative charity drive, lovingly called Junior Jaunt. With the theme of the roaring 20 ' s, the event took place January 17-19. 1 fj K IP Sm " " sa|EM fM ' V M H I A er r H Ll. . 9 128 Wendy Brooks Cheryl Brown Wm " i3V H i Ei " ■ ■■i Sally Brown Sherri Brown Anna Bryan Sandy Burson Rebecca Burtz 129 Ross Cheney Jean Cho iBP (■ M Ei% " H VELj Bk L fl ilH H ' li ' ' ' 1 Sheryl Cook Marina Costarides Kim Clark Paxson Collins Cindy Dantzler Lisa Degrandi Trish Elebash Peggy Emrey Dottie Enslovv Cynthia Evans 130 iy IjWliB afl Urt ' ' AvmMfy Vj H H H i A 1 m % K !

" as a musical structure for the Junior Production. The work contin- ued during the summer as the Script Chairman and Lyricist hurried to finish a smooth and witty musical before the be- ginning of fall quarter. All that was left to do was the casting of characters and the scheduling of numerous practices. The staff and cast led by Cindy Dantzler, Pro- duction Director, and Sarah Fairburn, As- sistant Director, dedicated their spare time and all of their energy to the opening night. All the participants complained and fretted over their work and the lack of time needed to finish assignments, but when the curtain was raised on October 20, 1978, no one regretted the hard work or sacrificed time. Revolving around the contrasting per- sonalities of the two main characters of Mary and Jeannie and their growth into ASC students, the Production explored different aspects of ASC life including blind dates, Freshmen English classes, and all-nighters. Whether the Production en- lightened and educated, or simply remind- ed the different members of the audience of past experiences, it was agreed by all that the musical was a memorable success. 131 Juniors Ellen Highland Mary Anne Hill Kathy Hollywood Cookie Hooper 132 Jane Huff Ann Huffines Jodie Jeffery Lisa Johnson : p . ■i W W ' .: B mm M.

After many erasures, the infa- mous blue cards are finally filled out on the top line. It does not matter whether one ' s major is the foundation for gra- duate school, for a career, or simply for pleasure; in all cases it is an opportunity to enlighten oneself in a major field. The Class Scholarship Trophy is a prized treasure at Agnes Scott. This year the Class of 1980 laid claim to this honor. Fall quarter, freshman year not " Deciding a major was hard enough. Working in your major is even harder. " many members of this class would have thought that their grades would have contributed to obtaining the trophy. However, diligent hours in the library and late night studying paid off this year; for the trophy belonged to the Class of ' 80. During this academic year, seven ju- niors spent their year away from the campus. Nancy Campbell and Judy Smith braved Paris after an orientation program in Tours. Christine Silvio furthered her interests in languages at the University of Marburg. Susie Ham and Melanie Hardy experienced life in the Scottish countryside as they studied at St. Andrews. Laramie Larsen stud- ied medieval and renaissance literature, Scottish and art history in Aberdeen, Scotland. Debbie Bolter, a chemistry major, participated in an internship at the Center for Disease Control in At- lanta during fall quarter. Elizabeth Mosgrove Kelly Murphy ' 1 ■m i»- V l H " !

That night makes it all worthwhile. To some it might seem a silly tradition, but capping is a very sig- nificant ceremony in our academic life. It is the symbolic beginning of the sen- ior year. Each senior picks a junior to " Capping is the big achievement of the first three years. " " cap. " The capping entails a special dinner in the dining hall, a secret cere- mony behind Buttrick and in the little quad, and usually partying before and after the ceremony. The next day, the juniors attend class in caps and gowns. The old seniors now relinquish their privileges with mixed emotions. 137 Juniors Investiture: The Official Recognition Of Senior Status 138 Seniors Dressed in traditional academic gowns with mortar boards carefully held before them, the members of the Senior Class pro- gressed across campus from Rebekah Porch to Presser Hall on Saturday morning, No- vember 4. Senior Investiture Weekend had officially begun. Family and friends joined this year ' s seniors to celebrate and to confirm the senior status of the Class of 1979. After three years of life at Agnes Scott, this group of students assumed the dignity of their aca- demic gowns with the rapidly approaching end of their years at Scott in sight and the opportunity for a new beginning just beyond the horizon. At an institution embeded in tradition, what is the relevance of Senior Investiture today? This service of recognizing and honor- ing the members of the senior class originated with the Class of 1908, and the term " Invest- ing " appeared in 1912. Until the public cere- mony of the Class of 1913, this event had remained a private affair held in President Gaine ' s office. Saturday and Sunday, No- vember 4-5, 1978, marked the special week- end of this year ' s graduating class. The week- end offered various events. During the Inves- titure Service on Saturday in Gaine ' s Chapel, the senior class and their guests listened to Dr. Margaret W. Pepperdene deliver an af- firmative address on the value of liberal and humane learning leading to the kind of knowledge that enables mankind " To Judge, and Choose and Renounce and . . . Create. " Dean Gary placed the mortar boards on each senior ' s head symbolizing the arrival of senior status. Following the Investiture Service, Dean Kirkland and Dean Gary entertained the seniors and their guests with a brunch in Winship Lobby. A senior exhibit in Rebekah Reception Room, featuring a display of the seniors ' accomplishments in their majors, ac- companied President and Mrs. Perry ' s Conti- nental breakfast on Sunday morning. After this breakfast, in the traditional Sunday church service, the Reverend Richard G. Hutcheson, Jr. inspired everyone with his message entitled " Servant Leadership in a Technological Age. " Each senior accepted the college ' s honor with a tinge of sadness as graduation drew near, but acknowledged an intense excite- ment with her new beginnings. And as Dr. Pepperdene reminded the seniors of the true value of their liberal arts education, she re- called the philosophy of old Phoenix Jackson: " It gonna last. " 139 Angeline E.

Erim — Biology 147 Still Friends After Four Years Friendships at Agnes Scott are close, for friends become more than acquaintances; they become a second family. We are with our friends most of the day — taking classes, studying, eating, meeting and chatting infor- mally. Friendships provide opportunities for fun, such as kidnapping an unsuspecting Scottie for breakfast on her birthday, making midnight runs to Krispy Kreme or Dunkin ' Donuts, and taking trips to New York or Florida over spring break. Friends appear in a time of need; providing rides to the airport, typing a last minute paper, and sharing tea and sympathy. In fact, sharing is the key to friendships, and friends share many things, from sweaters to perfume, or from late-night popcorn parties to an evening at the Sympho- ny. Friends also share double dates, pizzas, mountain hikes, records, pencils, pictures, evenings out, books, class notes, jokes, Satur- day Night Live, movies, shopping trips, all- nighters, goodies from home, and soap. Friends provide diversity and a different point of view. The English major has close friends majoring in History, Political Sci- ence, Economics, Biology, French, Theatre, and Psychology; while the dancer has friends involved in theatre, sports, Glee Club, Dol- phin Club, or the Silhouette staff. Having friends whose interests differ from ours gives us the opportunity to expand ourselves and to learn informally about many subjects. Our friends are precious, and sadly we realize that soon we will be separated by distance. Yet we reassure ourselves that ties made at Agnes Scott will remain strong in years to come, and our friendships will continue to be shared experiences- 149 Susan G.

This year, sixteen mem- bers of the Class of 1979 were chosen to represent Scott. The following is a list of those students and some of their activities at Agnes Scott.

For three years, we ' ve watched the graduates receive their diplomas. Now it is our turn — where will we go from here? In late fall, almost all of us were uncertain about what our post-graduation plans would be. Here are some estimates: as of that time, 45 percent of us hoped to find a job, preferably in the South. A big 40 per- cent of us planned to go on to do graduate studies in such varied fields as medicine, business, law, psychology and biology. Evidently our studies at Agnes Scott have made us want to know more! 9 percent of us wanted to travel some before settling down. Some hoped to be stewardesses or just to spend some time in Europe. Some of us had our eyes on England or Scotland as a good place to expand the mind. On the other hand, 5 percent of us already heard wedding bells in the near future . . . The remaining 1 percent simply had no idea of where we would be or what we would be- come. Whatever the case, may we all pros- per and be happy in whatever we do. 170 A Ade, Leanne ' 82 - 95, 111 All, Mary Ellen ' 81 - 121 Alspaugh, Anne Elizabeth ' 82 - 111 Anderson, Ellen Ann ' 81 — 121 Anderson, Helen Ruth ' 81 - 91, 121 Andrews, Julia Lynn ' 82 - 97, 111 Arant, Mary Elizabeth ' 80 - 129 Arledge, Alice Dianne ' 82 - 111 Armour, Martha Leigh ' 81 - 121 Arnold, Deborah Peggy ' 81 - 92, 95, 121 Arnzen, Patricia Anne ' 80 - 70, 80, 82, 91, 129 Atkins, Nancy Ellen ' 79 - 82, 140 b Bacon, Kimberly Lane ' 82 - 111 Bagley, Teresa Jannie ' 82 — 111 Bailey, Lori Ann ' 82 - 111 Balbona, Virginia Maria ' 81 - 121 Ballard, Deborah Irene ' 79 - 68, 71, 140 Ball, Crystal Anne ' 82 - 111 Bannen, Gudrun Alison ' 80 - 75, 129 Banyar, Diane Hope ' 79 - 95, 141 Barbee, Anita Patricia ' 82 - 88, 92, 111 Barefoot, Suzanne Dunn ' 79 — 140 Barnes, Susan Sanders ' 81 - 80, 91, 121 Barnhlll, Sandra Kay ' 81 - 71, 94 Bass, Nina Brazell - 127 Beaudoin, Diane Marie ' 79 - 67, 90, 91, 140, 160 Beck, Catherine Elizabeth ' 80 - 81, 129 Belk, Elizabeth Eve ' 79 - 93, 141 Bell, Glenda Rebecca ' 79 - 141 Benham, Angeline E.

For the past few years, Agnes Scott students and faculty have been trying to build a strong College Bowl Team. This year Dr. Jack Nelson, with help from Dr. and Mrs. Harry Wistrand, Dr. Michael Brown, Dr. Linda Woods, and Dr. Arthur Bowling, coached the team. Most of the students participating were sophomores. The students who practiced regularly and attended competitions were Ila Burdette, Carol Chapman, Julie Daniel, Kathy Helgesen, Helen Hill, Lisa Merrifield, Susan Nicol, and Diane Shaw. The teams entered three tournaments winter quarter: the Early-Bird Charger Invitational at the University of Alabama at Huntsville, the Tenth Annual Southeastern Invitational College Bowl at Georgia Tech, and the Region VI ACU-I Tournament at Georgia Southwestern College in Americus. Dr. Woods coached the team at the first two tournaments when Dr. Nelson was unable to attend. Although the Agnes Scott team did not place in any of the tournaments, they did play well. At Americus, Ila Burdette was one of five players named by the coaches to the tournament ' s All-Star Team. Only one other undergraduate was chosen, the other three were graduate students. The team planned to play a campus match against a faculty team. They spent the spring quarter establishing the College Bowl as a permanent campus organization by drawing up a constitution and a budget. Another f project involved compiling information files for use next year. Since only two members graduate in June, next year ' s team will be an experienced one ttmmiBisiaaam 173 K Keller, Julia Anne ' 82 - 114 Kelly, Melissa Jane ' 82 - 114 Kemp, Sandra Dca ' 80 - 96, 133 Kent, Mary Louise Tucker ' 79 - 154 Keon, Mary Ann ' 80 — 133 Kessler, Robin Elaine ' 79 - 154 Keyser, Gretchen J.

In February, as bulldozers and tractors moved in and began to dig up the campus in two spots, it appeared that the Physical Plant had started work on the " Agnes Scott Subway. " After all, why shouldn ' t the school have its own feeder line into the MARTA system? Logically, the main boarding area would be in front of the Dining Hall, with another stop near Winship and the Health Center. So the trenches were dug and men worked in the red clay for several days. Finally someone decided to ask Mr. Black, Director of the Physical Plant, when the subway would open. " Subway, what subway? " Obviously Mr. Black knew nothing about this new »f - branch of MARTA. Well, what was all the digging for? Some old steam pipes had broken and had to be replaced. Well, even though there would not be s an ASC Subway, at least Scotties were i2 guaranteed warm rooms for the winter.

Monday, February 19, 1979, will be a day remembered by Scotties as one of the two times in the history of the college that classes were cancelled. On Sunday, students awoke to a sleet covered campus. Only Mrs. Saunders had arrived to prepare and serve breakfast. So for the next day and a half, Scotties helped out by serving themselves and cleaning off tables. Monday at lunch, Dean Kirkland served fish sticks and " pushed " vegetables Many students borrowed old trays from the Dining Hall and headed for the nearest hill. Even though the city was at a standstill, the library opened as scheduled on Sunday and Monday. Sunday night, freshmen began hoping classes would be cancelled. Upperclassmen said no, even when Dean Kirkland called to say no classes on Monday. Finally juniors and seniors began to believe an Agnes Scott miracle had occurred.

But this year, Scotties had an edge on getting these coveted positions because Anne Lindsey, a personnel officer in charge of recruiting flight attendants for Delta Air Lines, lived on the Agnes Scott campus. Ms. Lindsey, known to some as Sarah Windham, showed her concern for prospective employees by calling them to verify and clarify information on their applications before she decided which lucky young women would wear Delta wings. The Career Planning Office went out of its way to help seniors interview with as many companies as possible. When Kathleen Mooney, Director of Career Planning, heard that two seniors wanted careers with Ronco, Inc., she arranged for Mr. Walt Grassner to make a special visit to the campus. Mr. Grassner was trying to fill positions in the Department of Research and Development of Household and Kitchen Gadgets. At the last minute an ice storm prevented Mr. Grassner from arriving for the interviews. Even though they had missed their big chances, the students appreciated Mrs. Mooney ' s efforts.

Afterall, we are on this earth for but a short time — why waste these fleeting moments of our youth in hours of study and tedium when life awaits us with its many temptations (sort of reminds one of Eve in the Garden . . . )? Perhaps, one might retort, the fact that Daddy spends boo-coo ' s of bucks on his darling daughter to send her to something other than a finishing school or vocational ed school (see pp. 98-99) will phase some. Still others are genuine lovers of knowledge. These are the souls who spend Friday night in the Library (nice as it is since its renovation, the Library hardly matches an aisle seat at " The Rocky Horror Picture Show " ), and or feel guilty if they do not devote, say, fourteen of their sixteen waking hours to Agnes. (Note: The two unaccounted for hours are set aside for meals, those invigorating walks to class, as well as those other personal necessities, i.e. dressing, etc.) Not that I do not respect these diligent individuals in their struggle for academic solvency — quite the contrary: I admire them. However . . . Study, like booze, in too large a quantity, can torque out your whole system. I suggest, on the other hand, a happy medium — a combination of rational and irrational, work and play, study and booze ... uh, recreation. One can still attain quality grades and go " out with the girls " one (maybe even two) nights a week. It is depressing to see a girl of eighteen (or twenty-two, for that matter) look lifeless and glassy-eyed from self- inflicted over-work (now, I know there are times when teachers inflict the heavy loads — those times can only be ignored to a certain poirit at which time the inevitable, notorious " all-nighter " occurs). However, at this age, a certain amount of immaturity is essential ... it gives a person the roses in her cheeks and the sparkle in her eyes that differentiate her from any one of the books she could find in the Library. I am not asking for irresponsibility, just fun within limits, liveliness within boundaries — and a well-rounded view of life through experience. 202 Parting Shots 203 Parting Shots . . . become a well-rounded individual? Experience the challenge of not doing what you are supposed to be doing at a particular moment. Granted, there is a price to pay (no — your professors will not accept bribes — not that kind of price). Rather, it is the price of maybe thinking up a few excuses. A word on excuses . . . Excuses were invented to pacify people. The word itself carries a connotation of a hidden design or a lurking understatement. However, the excuse, in general, has a dual nature: not only does it pacify the listener, but it also soothes the teller ' s conscience. Each person has the satisfaction of having been told, or of having told, some (hopefully) rational cause for an unusual occurance. Now, as to the extent of belief . . . Excuses should be reasonable. Sickness is a reasonable excuse. Death (your own) is not. Have the appropriate look about you. Appearing calm, cool and collected as you explain that your twenty-three page term paper was in your eight- piece-matched-set luggage, and said luggage went to Paducah, Kentucky, instead of following you to Atlanta after your extended weekend, is certainly going to earn a raised eyebrow. Look properly harried — especially if it is true (and, I might remind you, we are on an honor system here at Agnes Scott). Which paranthetical comment brings up another point: fibs, white lies and evasions of the truth can seldom be hidden for long. So, you were sick yesterday — of studying. The Infirmary does not give notes for spring fever. Also, drinking is no excuse for a mid-week blow-out of homework. Most fellow students can empathize with a sudden desire for the solace found in a pitcher of beer. However, beer, as a rule, does not inspire one to greater heights of understanding when one finally returns to the books. All beer does is make the bed look more inviting, and the homework look more as if it will keep until tomorrow . . . and tomorrow . . . and tomorrow . . . 204 Parting Shots 205 Parting Shots I, fj As I wandered through Creative Loafing the other day, on my way to the Personals, I was struck by the sudden realization that the publi- cation had contents other than those torrid, questionable requests in the Personals: I ' m a luxury ONLY a lew can aflont and shall reply only to those exclusive lew (Think twice liefore answering and if single, don)tbBtbMtaHai g2L% Box Ra.Ga 30306. ing W F who loves dancing as |uch as I— Will wine and dine ■l Platonic unless you choose other AttrractiyewbH ' RSICTScrlit relationship with young tut: Would like picture olease Replies guaranteed. PC Bo« 3 303 Attaria 30334. I MIMUM I t.J. 2 Forgetting for a time my original intention of reveling in other people ' s debauchery, I flipped through the paper in an attempt to discover what information it had to offer which would rival the colorful Personal (oh, how personal!) section. What I found amazed me. Creative Loafing contained the names of places, lists of activities, suggestions of ways — to loaf creatively. Needless to say, I was amazed — not that a paper should hold such a wealth of information, but that I had neither heard of nor taken advantage of 99% of these suggestions. Having absorbed some form of rational thought from my many years at Scott, my mind jumped (or should I say " leapt " ?) at the inevitable question ( " chasm " ) before me: What have I done? I scratched my head. An idea struck me (sort of like flying debris) I pulled out a piece of paper to make a list. Sitting at my desk with pen in hand I waited for my mind to click into gear. What have I done? Once again, I scratched my head. I fidgetted. I stretched and yawned. Maybe this list was not such a good ideal . . . But no, I was determined. That restless, unrelenting spirit that lies hidden deep within each of us had had its curiosity aroused. What have I done? After watching the minute hand on my clock lurch forward sporadically for ten minutes, I took action. Look, I told myself, approach this thing logically — humm. Stalemate. You live outside Atlanta, I prodded. What would attract someone to Atlanta? Hmm. Suddenly, there was a flash in the night as I recalled my impressions of " Hot ' lanta " immediately preceding, as well as during my Freshman year at Scott. Atlanta stretched before me, a southern goldmine of entertainment and fun. The city glowed in the sunlight as silver buildings reached for the sky, and ribbons of roads showed the blur of cars speeding by. But what was there? The airport sight-seeing. not a place to go Six Flags. I smiled at the thought of an amusement park — then shook my head as I realized I had not been there since the Freshman Orien- tation trip — back in the days when tickets cost only one arm instead of two. The Capital building — I think that is what it is ... that building on the right as you go west on 1-20 . . . with the lady on top . . . gold ... oh, well . . . Uhm . . . shrines ... to Martin Luther King , . . well, no, I had passed that on the Freshmen tour. (Don ' t they have a street named after] him? I never go to that part of town, though — seems to me it should be somewhere near the Capital . . . ) Braves Stadium — oh, excuse me, I mean Fulton County Stadium — I thought hopefully. But, no, I had only seen the outside of that. Now, I had driven down West Pac Ferry to see the Governor ' s Mansion and the ritzy houses. However, as I recall, I got lost that day and headed toward Tennessee instead of Atlanta. Of course, there are always museums, but I hardly think that is what came to Atlanta for. I have gone to the Metropolitan Opera. I have to admit I was shocked] when I recognized a song in the show| Nearly fell out of my chair. The Symphony — no, never got there. An the few plays were class assignments. What about Stone Mountain? (Wha about it?) The granite relief I can do without after five or ten minutes, but the park is great for a picnic. And there is Marietta — not much ] there except Cumberland Mall. Speaking of which . . . Shopping I have done . . . Atlanta could live on the money I have spent ill on presents, records, clothes and food. Lenox Square I know backwards and forwards. Cumberland Mall is too big. Northlake has some good- looking salesmen . . . (just checking out the scenery — that is part of Atlanta, too, y ' know). South Dekalb. North Dekalb. More malls than people to shop in them. I never have been to the zoo (yes, Atlanta has a zoo). Maybe I should go there and feed the elephants sometime . . . Never seen the Cyclo- rama, either (look that up in your Funk and Wagnall ' s). I have been to Chattanooga. — but I guess that has nothing to do with Atlanta. Have you seen the Keebler factory on 1-75 South? Yes, they have elves in their tree . . . Central City Park is beautiful in the early morning — I took the bus to Lenox and did not have a choice about seeing the park. It is one of the Coke company ' s gifts to Atlanta (along with the " no deposit, no return " bottle). One half of Atlanta is owned by Coke. The other half is owned by Gulf. Piedmont Park is safe if you are heterosexual. Nice park, but I would not want to be gay there. MARTA construction surrounds us so I could not avoid it. Looks like a herd of giant moles are taking over underground Atlanta. Maybe one day before I graduate I will get to ride the subway — if the engineers will stop playing with their new toys long enough to let on passengers. I finally got to see the Fox Theater. Impressive. Too bad I was in nose-bleed city. I have driven up Peachtree Street and seen the hookers and the traffic. I have been inside Peaches and Oz. I have gotten a " slice " at Franco ' s. I have seen the lines for the " Rocky Horror Picture Show " — I have never gotten in to see the toast, the rice or the Scott tissue. I have never been to a gay bar. Bars. That is another story. There are bars everywhere, even on top of the Peachtree Plaza Hotel. Impressive. Drink while Atlanta circles below you. The Hyatt-Regency has the Polaris Room. Although not seventy- some stories off the street level, the Polaris Room is recognizable as " that blue thing on top of that building " . There are still other bars, I am told. I am not sure where they are. Of course there are the disco ' s. I have only been to one — Tingle ' s. I did not Tingle. But Flannigan ' s, Pogo ' s and Gerald ' s are a small drop in the bucket. They are not good places to drink anyway — unless it is nickel pitcher night. (I have my priorities.) And, as for drinking, it seems as if we choose the same places consistently. All the drinking establishments in this town (even if I cannot remember them, or even know that they exist in the first place) and Scotties still go to P.J. ' s, Moe ' s, P by C, the Beer Mug, Pippin ' s and Spiro ' s. I plead " habit " for my lack of drinking establishment variety. But, then again, I guess habit has dictated more than just my drinking places. What I do not know about Emory, I know about Tech. I could probably drive the road over there while asleep — put the car on automatic pilot. Heaven knows I have driven back to Scott half-asleep enough times. I think I would get lost if I were not slightly out of it while speeding down Ponce. I can tell you virtually every establishment that lines Ponce from Scott to Tech. I can make it from Tech to Scott and only stop for three — count ' em, three — lights. I know every pothole in the road. I could tell you how late " Church ' s " is open. MARTA and Southern Bell construction behind the Fox has been followed by me because it is " on the way. " Krispy Kreme is a good place to stop for a midnight snack. Lots of characters. Watch the wierdos outside Plaza Drugs. I have ridden MARTA. Lots of great people on MARTA — a few wierd ones, but you can find them anywhere. The nice people I have met have made the trips worthwhile. Atlanta is full of nice people — genuine Southern hospitality, I guess. They are not afraid to talk to a stranger. So, I thought, what have I done? I have seen a little culture. I have met some nice people. I have gatored with the best. And I have partied with the rest. Maybe in my stay at Scott I have not taken advantage of all that Atlanta has to offer me — but I am young. Those things will still be standing when I finally get around to seeing them — someday, when I am older and am not pressed by the rush of fleeting youth. Atlanta still stretches silver fingers to the sky in my mind because I know the potential for activity is here — even if I have not tasted it to its fullest extent • — yet. !J " 1 BJ 207 Parlfnr, Shots When All Is Said And Done Many hours of hard work have elapsed since last spring when the yearbook was still in the planning stages and, although, the work on the yearbook ended two months ago, the purpose of the 1979 Silhouette lives on. Our goal for the year was to design a book that would become a " piece of your past in the future. " Years from now, you will be the judge for you will know if we reached our goal. For now, I believe we succeeded. I wish to express my sincere apreciation to every staff member whose talents, efforts, and patience did not go by unnoticed. The contribu- tions of three staff members merit special rec- ognition: Kay Kirkland for spending many an afternoon in the darkroom developing and printing pictures; Anne Jones for serving as an efficient Copy Editor, Business Manager, advi- sor, " administrative assistant, " and wonderful roommate; and Pat Arnzen for her mind-bog- gling layouts and constant devotion to the cause. Special thanks are extended to Dan Troy, our smiling representative from Josten ' s; to Phil Houston for his excellent photography and unending supply of frat jokes; and, finally, to my parents and Bill for their continuous en- couragement throughout the past year.
