When it comes down to the line, I guess none of us know exactly why we came to Scott. Of course, there are all those qualities that the cata- logue tells us Scott is good for: a reputable aca- demic community; a student-faculty ratio of eight to one; a liberal arts education as a diverse basis for jobs in an increasingly technological society; a small intimate campus community located in a (relatively) peaceful town on the fringe of Atlanta. We have a reputation of doing quite well in the world once we leave the sanctu- ary of the Scott community. And yet, there has to be more . . . Realistically, Agnes Scott has a personality. Exactly what it is, however, depends on to whom you speak. First impressions mean a lot. To some, we may be the Southern elite — but, sorry, we are not a finishing school. To others, we are sheltered, prudish and religion-oriented — not necessarily all of the above or in that order. Meanwhile, we are also expected to be preppy, partiers, and snobby. I am sure there are other impressions as well, just as 1 am sure the faculty and administration would prefer we were known for our academic personality. But dear old Agnes is a place to live as well as work, and she proudly houses five hundred - irls of varying shapes, sizes and personalities, all of whom con- tribute to her particular personality, whatever hodge-podge that may be. There was something in that personality that attracted you — can you name it? £fel ' : ' EBHH mtmm why did you come here? ■ -•-31. . ' -5V ' - ■•-.:5 Q] S 11 ii t I HI HI ' • ' ,..H FEMINISM VISITED AND REVISITED: Which way to the ■y t Convent? A hapless generalization at best, all colleges and universities offer a rather sheltered existence to their students. After all, an academic atmosphere is not the real world, except for a select few. Scott, however, has had charge of that weaker sex for a long time, and has deemed it her responsibility to guide her students as the times have dictated. Of- ten she has been a few steps behind society, but in recent years the school has moved by leaps and bounds into a new concept of womanhood. Increas- ingly, the college has pushed toward leadership by asserting women ' s growing interest in the job mar- ket and by adjusting her academic progra ms appro- priately. If Scott students remain somewhat seclud- ed from the world, it is not so much from limiting rules of social conduct as from an individual ' s free choice. The option is there for virtually any course a student chooses to follow. Those who are unin- volved, off campus or on, are so by choice. And, by and large, that choice seems to be one of uninvolve- ment with politics and public concerns, not to men- tion campus organizations. More and more, the stu- dents are moving toward a sort of voluntary isola- tionism, whether socially or politically. Those stu- dents who opt for a purely academic background cannot be condemned. However, Scott offers more possibilities for involvement, externally and inter- nally, than can be acknowledged by present behav- ior. The walls around Scott still stand, as do a few of the protective rules that are maintained out of common sense and need, but they appear more a mental wall than a physical one. - . iMiifll THE GREAT JUGGLING ACT: You ' re damned if you do There are two sides to Scott-life. They are acknowledged in the college catalog, even if the second is somewhat buried in the midst of aca- demic enticements. For Scott is a college cam- pus dedicated to higher learning — and yet, she is also composed of flesh and blood people — and people do not exist on books alone. And if the academics can be overwhelming, so can At- lanta and its enticements. For an intricate part of learning can not be found in books — it can only be experienced. The trick is balancing the two. It ain ' t easy. The lure of an interesting course can keep the best Scotty buried in the library all quarter, only to emerge upon exam date to notice the leaves have fallen and it has been raining. And the work-load could make the staunchest scholar shudder at times, especially when a student has been blessed with three or four professors whose chief pleasure in life is reading papers late at night instead of watching Johnny Carson. On the other hand, one look at Creative Loaf- ing, and one is bound to hop in the next conve- nient means of transit and loaf — creatively. Culture, concerts, bars, lights, action — all await the willing in Hot ' lanta . But, mostly, just about anything will do when you have the screaming heeby-jeebies and library-itis. The trick is, once you get stuck in one rut, changing to another and then maintaining a balance be- tween. It ain ' t easy, r m AS DARWIN SAID :©w T( A LIBEMAL EBUCATIIOIM, SC©TT STYLE So — you are in the midst of midterms (but didn ' t they start the third weetc of the quarter, and isn ' t this the seventh?) and you have three papers due within just as many days. Congratulations. You have just discovered the liberal arts syndrome. Basically the philosophy is that each professor does his or her own thing and you try to do theirs all at the same time. The basic symptoms of this dread disease, besides those listed above, are a sudden kinship with the books on the fourth stack of the library, talking in your sleep wherein you blaspheme your (liberal) education and scare your roommate, staying up to unearthly hours (that were certainly meant only for p artying), a tendency to eat fast and a lot (even though the dining hall food has never turned you on before) and recurrent dreams featuring: a) the librarians; b) great artists and their works; c) the Krebs Cycle — in correct order (but you couldn ' t do it if you were awake); d) Moby Dick; e) Ishmael; f) Shakespearean orations; g) the Terror, featuring you as chief headman and your profs as the fated enemies of your college career; h) any of the above; i) all of the above. What to do? Buy stock in the Coke company — you will probably drink enough Tab to make thirty rats have cancer. Then, do your best to grin and bear it — the break will be here soon. S] n© STAYIN ' ALIVE: ' ' What! You mean there are no men at this school? .—;-•=» Sorry girls — this is a women ' s college. What? they didn ' t tell you before you signed your life away on the dotted line? Surely you jest — but — not to worry. There are escape routes. May we suggest TGlF ' s, Tech and Emory, not to men- tion the wealth of men in Atlanta? There is bound to be some- one or something out there at least moderately acceptable for your stay at Scott. It has never stopped anyone before, though I would not suggest Scott as a source for an M.R.S. degree — the resources are a bit limited in that respect. However, fall rush parties and TGIF parties offer an excellent way to meet men with little or no effort. Plus, you have the moral support of forty or fifty other Scotties who are bound to be ar ound. They may present a bit of competition, but with a little effort, even that can be overcome. f, i m TRADITIONS AND TRIVIA: BUT THIS ES THE WAY If Agnes Scott seems to you a stately, dignified old school where time passes tranquilly and change comes slowly, then you should study her history! Tucked among the faded yearbooks are memories of an astonishing past. One can never really know Agnes Scott as she is until one knows who she was. Here, then, are a few tidbits of our color- ful college. The Decatur Female Seminary (which later became ASC) was con- ceived by Rev. Frank H. Gaines almost immediately after he became pastor of the Decatur Presbyterian Church. The first organizational meeting for the new school was held July 17, 1889, and, through a remarkable feat of administra- tion, the school opened its doors less than three months later, on September 24. If you educate a man, you may pro- duce a good citizen; but, if you educate a woman, you may train a whole fam- ily. Such was the philosophy of Rev. Gaines that led to the Decatur Female Seminary ' s devotion to women ' s educa- tion. Six tiundred dollars was to the annu- al salary of Miss Nannette Hopkins, first principal. She originally agreed to serve one year in Decatur; at her death in 1938 she was in her fiftieth year with the college. Mr. Gaines, the Lord has greatly prospered me in my business and I don ' t want to harden my heart, were the words which prefaced Col. George Washington Scott ' s offer of $40,000 to provide a home for the Agnes Scott In- stitute. When he had finally acquired the land and had completely built and furnished Main Hall, his total gift was $112,250. At the time it was the largest individual gift to education ever made in Georgia. Agnes Irvine left Ballykeel, County Down, Ireland when she was 17 years old to come to America. In Alexandria, Pennsylvania she married John Scott and exerted her strong Christian influ- ence as wife and mother. Col. Scott, her son, was anxious to have the graduates of A.S.I, inherit her character; hence, the name of the college. For years it was customary to bring freshmen before Ag- nes Scott ' s portrait, where they knelt and swore allegiance to her spirit. Her spinning wheel still rests in the McCain Library Archieves. The Agnes Scott Ideal has become known as the Magna Carta of the school. This set of aims, formulated by Mr. Gaines, as well as a covenant which the early leaders of the Institute also signed, pledging their daily prayers for each other and the school, bears the signatures of not only the first adminis- trators, but also of all Agnes Scott ' s presidents. The ideal and prayer cov- enant remain symbols of the present college ' s close identification with her past. During the life of the Institute, Mon- day was designated the weekly holiday. By avoiding Saturday, the administra- tors hoped to encourage students not to work on Sunday. The early students of Agnes Scott Institute were actually in grammar school, but the aim of the trustees was to eventually transform the school into a college. The transition was not easy: The process of discontinuing each year the lowest grade and adding a high- er one at the top was very disheartening to some of the students . . . Some of them were seniors in the school for four consecutive years without being able to graduate. It is small wonder that of the 1663 students who attended Agnes Scott institute, only 68 ever received diplomas. In 1905, the Institute split into Agnes Scott College and Agnes Scott Acade- my. The first five degrees were con- ferred in 1906. The Academy, a prepara- tory school, was dissolved in 1913. :%:■ mom: Agnes Scott ' s myriad annual celebra- tions have come and gone through the years. Among those most likely to be unfamiliar to present students are: May Day — Sponsored by the P.E. department, a gala production of song and dance was presented annually in the May Day dell (now known as the amphitheatre) from 1914 until as recent- ly as 1960. In attendance were the sen- ior May Queen and her court of class representatives. Suppressed Desires Day — Scream- ing in the library, addressing professors by their first names, ringing fire bells in the dorms, riding the faculty elevator in Buttrick and keeping lights on all night were just a few of the privileges $1.00 could buy as part of this Junior Jaunt project. In a surprising turn-about, one professor used her pass to give a pop- test, then promptly tore the papers up before the class ' s eyes. Little Girls ' Day — On the Friday before Investiture, seniors traditionally dressed themselves as young -hildren and terrorized the campus with water- — pistols. These antics, along with a chapel the seniors gave, symbolized their last fling of youth before assuming their newly exalted positions. Little Girls ' Day was last celebrated in 1962. February 22 — The anniversary of Col. Scott ' s birthday is still honored as Founder ' s Day, but on that day for many years no classes were held. Lor g Commencement Weekend — The traditional graduation festivities be- gan on Saturday afternoon with the Class Day exercises in the May Day dell. Sophomores in their white dresses accompanied seniors and carried a huge chain of daisies and ivy. The chain typi- cally stretched the length of Inman ' s porch and was woven for their sister class by the sophomores. After the Class Day program of such announce- ments as the seniors ' last will and testa- ment and the class prophecy, the daisy chain was taken to the quad and laid in an S ; it remained there the rest of the day. Saturday night brought Book Burning and Junior Capping. This time, juniors in white met with the seniors in front of Main. Each robed senior stepped for- ward in turn with her most detested sub- ject book or notebook and dropped it into the bonfire with a short poem as epitaph. The group then went directly to the quadrangle, where the juniors were capped. On Sunday morning. Baccalaureate was held, followed by the president ' s party that afternoon. The entire celebra- tion climaxed with graduation on Mon- day morning. Weekly Formal Dinner was held ev- ery Sunday at noon and on Wednesday nights for years at Scott. By the ' SO ' s, students were simply required to wear Sunday clothes but originally for- mal meant long dresses and gloves. At such meals instruction in social eti- quette was given. The only time the sophomores failed to correctly quess the freshman mascot during Black Cat was in 1973. Black Cat as we know it evolved through a series of stages. Originally the bonfire was held as a pep rally for the first hockey game of the year. Fresh- men choose mascots and secretely hung door decorations with their sym- bol outside upperclassmen ' s rooms. Eventually sophomores g ot the notion of surprising freshmen with a sign pro- claiming the secret which they post- ed the night of door-decorating. At last one ambitious group of sophomores de- cided to announce the freshmen mascot in a song at the bonfire — hence our present practice. Special thanks go to Dr. Edward McfHair and Mollie Merrick for their kind help, and to Ma Burdette for her patient research. ' H lp r l? ' 1 m v - m Ml fcb (more traditions) BLACK CAT ll eep an eye cut for Black Cat again arrived with its promise of temporary insanity and momentary respite from fall ' s hectic schedule. This year, hazing was not begun until a week before the bonfire in order to alleviate unwelcome dis- turbances to studying. The Freshmen, led by chairman Anne Luke, however, began to debate on and to select a mascot at the usual time, while the Sophomores, under the adept leader- ship of Beth Maisano and Susan Glover, poked and prodded through scads of green suggestions and decoys. As the bonfire drew near, excitement was hard to contain, and thus in hazing week at least one dorm was subjected to a waterfight and another was strewn with shaving creme. To what degree these scuffles contributed to discovering the mascot one cannot say, but their good-natured mutual hazing was in the spirit of the times. c - n. I those IBcy Sc€ut§-- Bonfire night came and with it the discovery of the new mascot in green as well as the measure of the Sophomores ' success as sleuths. The Sophomore class guessed the new mascots as Scouts. With a rousing chorus, the Freshmen conceded that they were the Boy Scouts, and a new member was introduced to the Scott family. The following afternoon, the field events took place in the Quad, with all four classes and the faculty participating in a wide range of events. The athletic Junior class took the trophy in this competition. Following these events, sister-class teams clashed in the traditional hockey game, from which the Freshman-Junior coalition emerged victorious. An outdoor picnic followed in the amphitheatre. — » fll ( ;% ' • - m W l m- They miaht want Ycurs The Junior presentation of Scott ' s Amusin ' capped off the day ' s festivities. The traditional takeoff on Scott life was set to the tune of the Sound of Music and featured such memorable characters as Clairabel Greenrot, Mo Mall and the Deans — Dean Edsel, Dean Putty, Dean Kirkwater and the unforgettable Dean Scary. Also, during the production the Black Kitty award was presented to the Sophomore class. Saturday night, as the coup de grace of Black Cat weekend, Social Council sponsored the formal dance held in the Egyptian Ballroom at the Fabulous Fox Theatre. The dance took the record for the largest number of tickets ever sold for a Black Cat formal. During the weekend, and during Black Cat as a whole, a fun time was had by all. 11 ' dKain soro QB RaR Jlnman Everybody is engaged or in love. Home of tine all- nigliter.

Roommates are generally good things to have. If you really hit it off, they can become your best friend, and, in a pinch, your best enemy. During an emotional crunch, when you disagree on the room arrangement, each other ' s boyfriends, each other ' s friends, and life in general, she can be hell to live with. During the good times, she can be a sounding board, a source of laughter, a shoulder to cry on, or a profound relief in comparison to the loonies that surround you on the hall. Of course, everyone suffers personality conflicts at times. Some may be too major to ignore, which makes a week too long to spend in the same room with that girl. However, irony of ironies, you may discover that a couple years later — or maybe even a couple weeks after you move out — that she is really not so odious. You could even get to like her. But living with her just didn ' t make it. Other roommates may have a problem at first that dissolves with the first heavy discussion, when you discover she is not the ogre she seemed at first glance. Heavens — she is reasonably compatible. Living with her may work out after all. A few roommates can be heaven sent. When your personalities start blending so that others have difficulty telling you apart, or when someone suggests that you cut the umbilical cord because you are always together, or when even after you both take singles you still go to each other with problems, you know it is almost a marriage. But marriage could not always be so good . . . 1 mm WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE Jk . . . V.ik - Ml J tii i ' - ' ■ IH This page is dedicated to the weird weather that permeated the beginning of fall quarter. As school began, the cool weather of fall set in weeks early — and the rain struck in earnest. It spoiled Senior pictures and threatened to force the Black Cat bonfire activities into the gym where, needless to say, there could be no bonfire. . Finally, it cleared at the last minute and the bonfire was held in the amphitheatre. Since then it ' s been beautiful, so that just when I decided to write about the rain, out of frustration, it has stopped and I can ' t get any pictures. s ato snnstatixiaaicc NOR ANY DROP TO DRINK; With Fridays come tiie end of tlie school week and the beginning of weekends and relaxation. A welcome respite can be found in a break from classes to join friends in galavanting around town — even if it is only to get away to Lenox Square or a 99C movie. And of course Social Council ' s TGIF parties express the sentiment of the day with their easily accessible on-campus cocktail parties which help to ease the tensions of the week. Somehow, even a busy Saturday buried in the books seems more tolerable when a few hours of peace and relaxation have separated the week and the work that is due. ■ ■ P I 1 W ' ' A t 3 1 V - f m ■ iS . t F M pi JM M Jb ■ ■. d At some point in her Agnes Scott career, virtually every Scotty experiences the late-night study syndrome. This condition may persist for a week or more, or it may, happily, be necessary for only one night. With the customary work loads and activities possible on this campus, however, latenighters or all-nighters are not uncommon. In fact, around midterms they almost seem to be a contagious disease passed from person to person. No one has died from an all-nighter, though. And if it seems you will not last the night, just drink a Tab or some more coffee, make some popcorn, and jog up and down the hall once or twice. A cold shower helps sometimes, but screaming out your window is not advised. It may relieve your tensions, but it may also scare the other girls on campus into fearing for their lives. Doing your laundry helps, as you will find that not too many girls wash clothes at three in the morning. Anything goes when you have no options about watching the sun rise over your homework. i»jjj IS A FOUR LETTER WORD Virtually every girl who attends Scott puts on some weight during her stay here. That is not to imply that the food is so great — but one has to eat to maintain one ' s strength. A lot of diets therefore spring up as an attempt to lose the Freshmen 10 (and just about every other class as well.) The steps are easy: Drink Tab like you owned stock in the Coke Company, and you single- handedly must maintain the current price on the stock exchange. Then try one (or all) of these easy diets: Salad: Breakfast is a little barren, but lunch and dinner are okay. It will not work if you load up your plate with enough lettuce to feed all the starving rabbits in Biafra, and then top it with cheese, ham and anything that does not move in the dining hall. Ice Cream: The dairy place will love you, but you will grow to hate ice cream. Honest. Vegetables: There are enough of them served if you like beans fixed forty-seven different ways. Protein: If you can find anything that is not fried, it is actually a good diet. Sea food: If you see food, do not eat it. But if dieting gets a bit dull and tire- some, and you have actually grown, out of exhaustion, not to hate those extra pounds quite so much, a few words of consolation are available. As Lord Byron once wrote of Milton, A little heavy, but no less divine. r .1 I ) © different Sitting: Lecie Weston, Cookie Hooper, Li! Easterlin, Laura Klettner, T.

The Glee Club spent over a year getting ready for this trip to England and Russia. We worried, planned, learned English and Russian Music, sent out appeals, andj rganized fund rais- ing projects. By the time we reached England the effects of jetlag were beginn ing to set in, ' but we didn ' t let that stop us. During the next three days we gave two concerts, one at Wandsworth School, where the kids actually asked for our autographs. The secon was for Oxford Polytechnic. While in London we had a great time sightseeing, going to shows, eating at unusual restaurants, and, of course, visiting real English pubs. On Friday we flew to Leningrad, where we were pleased to find it had just recently snowed. At the airport, we met Irena, our official guide. Sherri immediately showed her the Russian translation of her solo which she had painstak- ingly memorized. Irena looked confused, and told her she better stick to the English version unless she wanted to go all over Russia singing You smoke up my life ... Leningrad is definitely one of the world ' s most beautiful cities, with its many rivers and well preserved 18th century architecture. We visited the Winter Palace and the Peter-andPaul For- tress, as well as monuments to the Revolution, such as the cruiser Aurora. In addition to sightseeing, one of our favorite pastimes was shopping at Barioska shops, where tourists can buy souvenirs with their own currency. We also spent an evening at the opera. The Russian people were very friendly and warm. Unfortunately, we were not that im- pressed with the food. We ' ll be talking about fish, beets, cabbage, and bread for years to come. We gave one performance in Leningrad at a school for future music teachers, which went very well. On Monday night we took the Red Arrow sleeper train from Leningrad to Moscow. We occupied our time by trying to learn to drink vodka like the Russians do — straight. Needless to say, it was a lot of fun, and most of us will never forget it. (Some of us may never remem- ber it.) We arrived in Moscow for more sightseeing, including a tour of the Kremlin. We had another performance that evening at a Moscow interna- tional student club. It went over very well, de- spite the adverse conditions we had inflicted upon ourselves the night before. We spent the next two days touring Moscow, seeing the Exhi- bition of Economic Achievement, art museums, Lenin ' s mausoleum, the Moscow circus, and big- ger and better Barioska shops. We gave our last Russian concert at a music conservatory, minus a few singers who had laryngitis. All in all, our trip to Russia was a fantastic success. In two short weeks we gave five concerts, visited two very different countries, and met many fascinating people. In retrospect, we all agree that the experience was well worth the fund raising, luggage hauling, beets and fish it took to get there.

Kim ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION ;® STODIO DANCE THEATRE a S5SSSSS xiS£- The Lecture Committee at Agnes Scott is an organiza- tion that seel s to provide students and faculty with a variety of activities. It is the Committee ' s aim to bring interesting and informative events, which students might otherwise never experience, directly to the campus. The Committee consists of six faculty: Mrs. Woods, chair- man, Mr. Barton, Mr. Bicknese, Mrs. Carden, Mr. Martin, and Miss Zenn, along with six students: Mary Anne Hill, student chairman, Nancy Brock, Burlette Carter, Becky Durie, Susan Nichol, and Martha Sheppard. The Committee sponsored four major events this year. In the Fall, the Guarneri String Quartet returned to the campus for the seventh consecutive year to provide a masterful performance. This was follwed by the Warsaw Mime Company ' s dance repertoire and the Atlanta Acad- emy Theatre ' s presentation of Harold Pinter ' s The Care- taker and Families. Winter quarter brought the Pitts- burgh Chamber Orchestra for a superb evening of music. Along with these events. Lecture Committee spon- sored special programs for the different departments, such as lecture series, special speakers, and workshops. Dr. Carl Djerass, Professor of Chemistry, spoke on Poli- tics of Birth Control; Robert Gonzalez Echevarrian spoke for the Spanish department; Earl Miner for Eng- lish; Herman Daly for Political Science; Richard J. Ander- son and David Edwards for Psychology; Neely Bruce for Music, and James Lawler for French. Each of these activities was sponsored by Lecture Committee to make ' students more aware of the diverse and interesting areas of education outside of the classroom.

We here at Agnes Scott are reaching ahead: to the Eighties, to the future. But how will we build on the past decade? To answer this we must first reexamine the ten years which have gone by. There was an almost universal student appeal for relevance: in life, at home, and most impor- tantly, in schools. Students demanded edu- cation which would result in practical ap- plication. But who listened? The schools did. Academic programs were re-vamped to avoid restricting students to the tradi- tional liberal arts and classics. Compro- mises were made and many campuses felt the need to over-haul everything from classes to constitutions in order to meet the students ' needs and concerns. What has been Agnes Scott ' s response to these pressures? We are sympathetic with such concerns, and we have moved to meet them, according to President Mar- vin Perry in his recent President ' s Report. But we have done so without sacrificing our emphasis on liberal arts and our faith in their value and usefulness both for living and for earning a living. Practical pro- grams, like a strengthened Career Planning Office have been implimented as the an- swer to college versus job relevance, and the widespread interest in the continu- ing of formal education has led to a suc- cessful Return To College program. But perhaps most importantly Agnes Scott has never compromised on its Judeo-Christian heritage. The Honor Code is still relevant and speaks to and through the students. Dr. Perry sees it this way: Agnes Scott has traditionally moved to the beat of a ' different drummer, ' rarely responding to the rhythms of ' trendy ' academic band- wagons or falling into the lockstep of domi- nant national fads. Rather, we have insist- ed on adherence to our own stated pur- poses and principles, sometimes against the current of strong and seductive fashion in education. With a strong foundation behind us, we now must march ahead into Scott ' s cen- tennial decade. What should we expect? Dr. Perry says, All projec tions point to the 1980s as a decade which will sorely try the survival power of many American colleges and universities, especially those in the pri- vate sector. But this unpromising glance into the future has not dimmed Agnes Scott ' s forward thrust. The report made to the Board of Trustees by the Long-Range Planning Committee recommends this pro- gram for consideration: 1. Attract and retain a select student body by maintaining a curriculum strong in traditional liberal arts disciplines and val- ues yet responsive to the needs of young women interested in professional and busi- ness careers. 2. Attract and retain a highly qualified faculty through competitive compensation and ongoing opportunities for their profes- sional growth. 3. Encourage the factors which strength- en the College ' s Christian emphasis and heritage, its Honor System, and its repre- sentative Student Government. 4. Plan and construct new physical edu cation and recreational facilities as well as a new student center and complete the renovation and improvement of the pre- sent buildings on campus. 5. Organize and launch a financial drive which will provide as soon as possible the $50,000,000 Agnes Scott will need to ac- complish the above objectives. These rec- ommendations have been accepted, in principle, by our Board of Trustees. We have already begun the decade which will prove to be a lean one. But Agnes Scott won ' t stop on the mere exis- tence level. Our college will step ahead to impliment innovations that will continually set us ahead. In summary. Dr. Perry says, Implicit in these recommendations for the future is the renewed dedication of Agnes Scott ' s leadership to the principles which have guided the College since its founding: a positive commitment to liberal arts edu- cation, i.e., to the joys as well as the uses of learning; and abiding faith in the human values of our Judeo-Christian heritage; the maintenance of academic and personal standards of excellence; concern for the individual ' s twofold search for self-fullfill- ment and service to others. This is the kind of college which we have been for almost a century. This is the kind of college we will contin- ue to be for the next century . . . Goodbye, Seventies. We here at Agnes Scott are reaching ahead. 1 1 Left: Bertie Bond, Administrative Assistant, and President Marvin B. Perry .®to) OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT AGNES SCOTT COLLEGE DECATUR, GEORGIA 30050 OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT AVE ATQUE VALE ! I welcome the opportunity to send a grateful greeting to all our students and an affectionate farewell to the graduating class of 1980. Few of you will long remember many individual events of the past year. Like most years, it had its ups and downs, its successes and failures, its joys and its disappointments. Looking back, the good times and the achievements seem to me to have outweighed the low spots and the frustrations: the winter break was well received; grades were up; morale was good; new social policies went smoothly; Student Government and the Honor System functioned effectively. Each of you will fill in from her own memories the cherished events of 1979-80. Agnes Scott, like all human institutions, is chiefly people. And Agnes Scott ' s two largest groups of people are our students and our alumnae. Each June a graduating class moves out into the world and into the alumnae body; each fall a new group of freshmen joins the student body. In the final analysis, the measure of an educational institution is the quality of the people it attracts to itself over the years, puts its mark upon, and sends out into the world. I have been greatly impressed by the caliber of freshmen we attract each fall and by the caliber of graduates we send out each June. As President, my chief concern is to see that we maintain a faculty and staff, an educational program, and the facilities which will continue to attract young women of ability and character and to give them here an educational experience which will prepare them for lives of satisfaction and service. We of the faculty and staff, we whose associations with Agnes Scott are usually for more than four swift years, have cherished these past four years with you who leave us now. We wish you much happiness in the years ahead, and we shall look forward eagerly to your continuing interest and support, and to your frequent return. Goodbye and Godspeed!

DEAN OF THE COLLEGE a A Second Chance Just from looking around the cam- pus, anyone can see that Agnes Scott attracts all kinds of people, and ' some of the most fascinating and enjoyable ones are the Return to College Students (RTC ' s). The Return to College Program has developed from the combined ef- forts of many devoted people to offer women beyond the usual college age of 18-22 the opportunity to resume their education. The program blossomed in September, 1974, with a total enroll- ment of 14 RTC ' s. Within a year the number of participants had more than doubled and now it is stronger than ever with 55 students. According to Mildred Petty, Assistant Dean of the College, the participants in the program are drawn to Agnes Scott by many of the same The RTCs like the security and atmosphere of a small cam- pus . . . features that attract the high school stu- dents. They like the security and atmo- sphere of a small campus, the quality of the education, and perhaps most impor- tant of all, they like the warm welcome and the feeling fo commitment to their needs that the college establishes at the moment of their arrival. The interests of the RTC ' s are as varied as their descrip- tions, due to their assorted needs and goals. Many o f them are wives and mothers who want to increase their edu- cation in order to go on to a career, and some simply want to sharpen their skills and knowledge in a special area of inter- est. Whatever the reason for their being at Agnes Scott, the RTC ' s are a group of high achievers and very motivated women. For many of them, being a stu- dent is a second job, and their time is often spread thinly — yet the success of the program is evident in the eyes of the administration, faculty, students, and most importantly, in the eyes of the Return to College students themselves. Their presence at Agens Scott has en- riched our college community and we are as happy as they are to have them here.

DEAN OF THE COLLEGE OFFICE OF DEAN OF STUDENTS Discover The Future Someday within the next four years we must all leave the security of Agnes Scott behind. There will be new challenges to meet for all of us. Do you know where you ' re going? The options are as diverse as the girls who will take them. The demands of those who are search- ing for a job or career, be it temporary or life-long, are met by the Career Planning Office. The CPO has had a complete staff turnover in the past two years. Kathleen Mooney, Libby Wood, and Lockey Mc- Donald now compose the team which works to counsel with and advise interest- ed students on what ' s out there in any occupation. Since Mrs. Mooney, Director of CPO, arrived two years ago, all the CPO pro- grams have been improved and expanded. Brand new this year is a computerized ca- reer information listing for the state of Georgia. This computerized program (C PO) indicates the job market openings, educational requirements, and salaries of our geographical region. Workshops and seminars have been an integral part of many students ' future plans; CPO offers everything from resume writing to interna- tional banking to What ' s A Race Car Driv- er Doing In a Newsroom. Alumnae have also begun to play a large role in the plan- ning of careers: not only do they give ad- vice in their field, but they also offer intern, extern, and shadow programs. Other inno- vations for the CPO include an expansion of their library, employment files, recruit- ing schedule, and weekly newsletter with information about graduate schools, semi- nars, and employment. A Comprehen sive Career Program is what the CPO is working toward. For the Agnes Scott students this would mean a chance to learn job-finding skills, and an opportunity to discover their interests, abilities, and then relate these to a career. It would also mean the CPO would expand student ' s career insight with information and experience, and provide job referral and placement. The goal of the Office is to get more students involved earlier than their senior year. The Career Planning Office is gearing us to the future. With their help we can effec- tively take our liberal arts education and apply it to careers, not just jobs.

Mrs. Saunders, head of the cafeteria for twelve years, uses this rule of thumb: soup on Sundays and cold nights, and hot cereal on cold mornings. For dinner we are served two vegetables (one low calorie), two salads, two meat dishes, two desserts, and hot bread. Food is delivered during the week from reputable companies. Staples come once a week, and perishables ar- rive on several days during the week. They have no say on the meat, accord- ing to Mrs. Saunders, but the poultry comes on the bird. Cheese, eggs, and Through the years Mrs. Saunders has seen many changes; from the hand-dipped ice cream being replaced to the attitudes of the girls. She said in 1968 the girls would steal any- thing, but the girls now are much nicer. poultry come from Good Brothers, milk from Kraft, and ice cream is delivered Monday and Thursday from Mayfield. Not only does Mrs. Saunders have to plan what to cook, she must also deter- mine how much. To do this a count of how many that eat is taken at each meal. From this she has determined that most girls leave campus or fast on the weekends. The normal count is about 500, while the weekend average is only 300. A lot of people are needed to prepare this large quantity of food and Mrs. Saunders usually has a full staff. They begin cooking breakfast at 6:00 a.m. and lunch at 7:00 a.m. There are three cooks and a full-time staff of line work- ers, dish washers, and clean-up crew. There is little turnover in the staff. They used to be hired through the Decatur schools, but now come from the general area. With so much care taken you may wonder how P by C got a higher Board of Health rating than our cafete- ria. For our score of 90 out of 100, Mrs. Saunders explains that 4 points were taken off for the milk spickets being long than 1 , 4 points off because there are no screens where the employees eat, and 2 points off because the top of the oven and under the mixer were dirty. Through the years Mrs. Saunders has seen many changes; from the hand- dipped ice cream being replaced by the box to the attitudes of the girls. She said in 1968 the girls would steal anything, but the girls now are much nicer. As a change, however, she would like to see the dishes and silverwar e stay in the cafeteria, and milk should not be taken out in bottles. It seems almost traditional here at Ag- nes Scott to complain about the food. But for once I imagine the cafeteria staff would like to hear applause as opposed to abuse for the hours and care they put in to keep us well fed. And, being practi- cal, for less than $2.00 and all-you-can- eat, we ' ve found a present day bargain!

Our image encompasses all thoughts: from a finishing school to an academically strong women ' s college. The complex- ity of this range, its truths and untruths, is quite difficult to describe in black and white. Perhaps this complexity of our image can explain the surge of pride an Agnes Scott student feels when she speaks with someone who knows the college well and all that it stands for. Take Sara Fountain for example. Just as it is the students ' responsibility to uphold a posi- tive image of Scott, it is Ms. Fountain ' s job to promote it. She must portray ASC in black and white ... or in color or in whatever she feels would be appro- priate for public realtions material of the college. She, along with Dot Markert and Andrea Helms, create a major por- The complexity of our image can explain the surge of pride an Agnes Scott student feels when she speaks with someone who knows the college well and all that it stands for. tion of our community representation. Ms. Helms functions as the News Di- rector of the Public Relations Office. She makes certain that Agnes Scott ' s major events reach the appropriate me- dia: either tv, ragio, newspapers, or magazines. She saturates the Metro-At- lanta area with news of our campus ac- tivities. Dot Markert is concerned with the day-to-day living of the campus. She co- ordinates events on the campus with the Dean of Students and includes all the information for us in our weekly newsletter. Sara Fountain came to Agnes Scott after working in the Atlanta area in sev- eral advertising agencies. Her merit as a Public Relations Director is obvious in her beautifully designed brochures, pamphlets, and reports on the College. We are lucky to have the skills of Ms. Fountain, Ms. Market, and Ms. Helms, along with such freelance talent as Marta Foutz, in the department. As a team they have put us ahead of all other women ' s colleges in the nation by sweeping eight awards at the National Convention of CASE (Council on Ad- vancement and Support of Education). Agnes Scott received recognition in the following categories: 1. Direct mail for program support 2. Direct mail for student recruitment 3. Publications Program improvement 4. Publications: events publications 5. Student recruitment brochures 6. Visual design: letterhead 7. Advertising design 8. Calendars How does the department know what our image is: what should they capita- lize on and what should they disclaim because of untruth? A marketing firm has given them their answers. The gen- eral public over the age of 21, high school students with certain PSAT scores, and high school guidance coun- selors were questioned to ascertain their impression of our school. The areas of survey were the Southern cities of Char- lotte, Jacksonville, Richmond, Roa- noke, Greenville Spartanburg, and At- lanta. From this demographic survey, the PR department can judge better what information to include in the col- lege catalog, student recruitment publi- cations and other promotional material. They have found that, according to the national statistics from the American Council on Education, 3% of the high school women surveyed wanted a wom- en ' s college because it is a women ' s college. Therefore the department must place emphasis on other motivations, academics and good location. Just as it is the students ' re- sponsibility to uphold a positive image of Scott, it is Ms. Foun- tain ' s Job to promote it. Why did you come here? If you are among the 97% of us who did not come because it ' s all girls, perhaps you came because you liked what you saw in any one of the multitude of ASC mailings which you received as a prospective ... or perhaps you were impressed by the over-all image of the college. What- ever first sparked your interest in the college can almost certainly be traced back to the Public Relations Office. Left: Deborah Fleming, Fund Officer; Sheila Harkleroad.

Upholding Standards As competition for qualified students increases, our Office of Admissions is continually seeking new angles, as- pects, and motives to attract students who can meet Agnes Scott ' s require- ments. Director Judy Tindel and her staff work as a team to travel and re- cruit students for admission without compromising on the college ' s stan- dards. According to Mrs. Tindel, the 1979- 1980 year got off to a good start. The additions which have highlighted the year include new staffer Denise McFall, a successful Oktoberquest, and the Honor ' s Scholars Program. Denise McFall joined the Agnes Scott staff after working in Emory ' s Admissions Office. She is the first minority staff According to Mrs. Tindel, the students of Agnes Scott are ambassadors of the College; we know the College — the pros and cons — and we speak of our impressions candidly to others. member and has brought expertise to the Admissions staff in minority coun- seling. Mrs. McFall was the coordinator of Oktoberquest, the prospective stu- dent weekend at Scott. This year, over 130 students were drawn from all parts of the country to participate in what Mrs. Tindel calls the most effective means of representing the college. The new Honor ' s Scholars Program will be implemented in September, 1980, in an effort to attract even more outstanding, all-round students. Out of the many applicants, 35 finalists will be chosen to be guests of the college for a weekend. From these 35, 10 outstand- ing freshmen will be selected and will be eligible for scholarships of $2,500 each year. Looking toward our new freshmen, Mrs. Tindel says she is optimistic for a good class, not only in numbers, but also in quality. She says, overall, there is a general seriousness of purpose and real goal direction in the future class of 1984. Whether we realize it or not, each one of us represents Agnes Scott at any giv- en time, place, or situation. According to Mrs. Tindel, we are ambassadors of the college; we know the college — the pros and cons — and we speak of our impressions candidly to others. This can be a great asset to the Admissions Office, because prospective students of- ten follow the lead of a student whose opinion they admire. The Student Ad- missions Representatives (SAP ' s) were inaugurated for this specific purpose. The girls meet and speak with home- town prospectives in an informal setting to answer questions about the college: anything from social life to academic difficulty. Mrs. Tindel and her staff emphasize diversity in their search for students. They look for girls with motivation, de- sire to work hard, leadership potential, and proven academic ability. They are consistent in their efforts to make Ag- nes Scott attractive to different geogra- phical areas and varied socio-economic backgrounds. The Admissions Office works hard to select students which will be beneficial to a community which lives together. Vi Left: seated: Jane Sutton, Katherine Akin. Judy Tindel, Director.

I occasionally look back at other jobs I might have taken late in 1969, and in difficult moments the grass on those campuses looks very green. (Cows have noticed this phenomemon for years, of course.) But most of the time I feel nourished here, and I hope that to some degree I have provided a bit of intellectual sustenance for my students and colleagues as well. My joy begins with my teaching. I ' m the luckiest person in the college, for 1 spend most of my year with John Milton and John Donne, Ben Jonson and George Herbert, and, to a lesser ex- tent, Shakespeare, Chaucer, Swift, Wordsworth — marvelous company all. They continue to teach me how to live, how to grow, how to endure. My joy persists because you Scotties some- times get caught up with these grand companions as well, and in my class. Then together we peer deep into life and art and, in Milton ' s terms, stand in admiration. Who could ask for anything more, on any campus, whatever the hue of the grass? — Patricia Pinka, English c .a; CO People create the reality they need in or- der to discover themselves. Ernest Becker Denial of Death ILrf ong before 1 read this statement, 1 developed some general ideas about the kind of reality 1 wanted to experience. This reality began to manifest itself over the years, slowly but inexorably. 1 was eighten when 1 decided to become an artist and teach at the college level. Meaning in life for me was then, and still is, a function of the creative process in relation to a posi- tive behavioral framework. 1 have always approached life with an aura of happiness and the anticipation of excitement. Teaching at Agnes Scott College is chal- lenging and exciting. 1 have had moments here almost as exciting as the time 1 put a sailplane into a dive and began a deliberate spin, looking straight down at the earth through a quarter inch of plexiglass; or the time I experienced the adrenalin-flowing ex- pectation when 1 heard the roar of white water around each bend while canoeing down a river for the first time. 1 feel that excitement now every time 1 walk into the Art department ' s new printmaking facility, one of the finest and best equipped in the country. The process of discovery and the excite- ment of creativity have become a reality that 1 want to share with my students. Agnes Scott College has given me the op- portunity to create the reality that 1 have always wanted and needed, and 1 am still discovering new facets of my Psyche. — Leland Staven, Art I MUSIC A en o o Urn c U a c x; u to hobby of mine for many years has been the breeding of fine poodles, a hobby which may seem unrelated to my profes- sion as a historian but is not entirely so. Dogs, of course, have no history (except what we ascribe to them); but pure-bred dogs have a genealogy, a recorded history that has always fascinated me; I once helped my father trace our family tree through generations of Americans back to remote ancestors in Ireland. The fun was in the search itself, and the satisfaction was in finding lost records and unraveling con- fusions of names and generations. And there is also something very satisfying about one ' s own family version of the begats. In breeding minature poodles 1 have, of course, a scientific interest in their genetic structure and in the hereditary contribu- tions of their ancestors. Pedigrees, taken with other information, can be helpful in guiding a breeder. But while studying the pedigree of my dog I began to wonder how far back 1 might trace his family tree. Once again the fun was in the search — I collected and studied many pedigrees, cor- responded with old-time poodle breeders, and consulted the oldest records in the English Kennel Club. I was none too soon on this, for 1 recently learned that all re- cords before World War II are now de- stroyed. 1 may be the last student of canine antiquities! I was finally able to trace my dog ' s pedi- gree back thirty generations, to the first poodle registered with the English Kennel Club in the 1890 ' s. 1 thus learned how the great English breeders achieved distinctive type and size by establishing lines of poo- dles with stable genetic characteristics. I crowned my work with an elaborate chart on a huge poster-board that now hangs beside my desk. It is a daily reminder that my research is better than my artistry! But I like looking at the name. Champion Chie- veley Choufleur, at the top of that chart, following the names of now-familiar dogs generation by generation to the name at the bottom of the chart. Champion Beritas Ronlyn Rockafella, my own handsome dog gracefully disposed in the chair beside me. It is the continuity, from the dim records of the past to the tangible reality of the pre- sent, that satisfies my sense of history. — Geraldine Meroney, History CLASSICS What was Agnes Scott like thirty years ago when I was a student? It was in many ways a far different college from the one we know today. Academic discipline was very strict: Saturday classes, no cuts for freshmen and sopho- mores, a one day Thanksgiving vacation. Social regulations were innumerable. Hat and gloves were required if one went to downtown Atlanta on the Decatur trolley (fare 5C). Students were expected to wear Sunday finery for all public lectures. Girls serving as ushers at these occasions were dressed in formal attire. Religious services were held everyday in the chapel, and a report of the student ' s attendance was sent to parents at the end of each quarter. The faculty of that period was composed of the giants — Miss Leyburn, Mr. Hayes, Miss Phythian, Mr. Robinson, and many others. The faculty was enriched my freshman year by the arrival of the darling, cute new astronomer, William A. Calder. (The adjectives are the ones which I heard from many generations of students. For some mysterious reason these epithets disap- peared from the student vocabulary in 1964 when I married the darling astrono- mer.) Much of the college of the past is gone now but when I see the light of understand- ing in the eyes of a student as I explain the uses of the subjunctive and when I read an essay that reveals true appreciation of lit- erature, 1 realize that life at Agnes Scott illustrates very well the old French adage: Plus ca change, plue c ' est la meme chose. — Frances Calder, French m T, C 3 ■ a; ■ c o u a; a; a; eaching, particularly teaching in a small liberal arts college for women, is sup- posed to be a profession which permits a great deal of time for easy, or leisurely, reflection. Here, it is often thought, a per- son will be removed from the common pace — not so! You tend to bring the world crashing in with you, and the educational needs which your aspirations reflect are a constant challenge. The challenge lies prin- cipally in antipating your post graduate needs: What can we learn today which will have importance and value over both the short and the long run? Answering the long-run portion of the question is not too difficult, but you have immediate needs and these too should be an object of our concern.

Putting both theory and practice together so that you see the- ory as a guide to practice is not an easy educational objective, but it is our objec- tive! It ' s an objective which pulls long and short run needs together, but it is also an objective which will demand and is de- manding harder work from both student and teacher. Reflection is an activity need- ed now, as ever, and yet the pace of life forces us to be reflective on-the-run. As 1 see it, reflection on-the-run is much the same as actively applying principles, as putting theory into practice. To those who graduate this year, 1 wish you active and reflective lives confident that our work to- gether has made a contribution to making that wish come true. Keep in touch. — W.H. Weber, Economics mt (A Di 3 a n 3 O o T he one thing I would most like to be doing right now is travelling. It doesn ' t make any difference where, as long as I can explore new places or relax and enjoy favorite haunts. I am blessed to have two companions, Penny and Alfalfa (my cocker spaniel), who enjoy this avocation as much as I do. Give me a mountain and I want to camp on it, to be away from people, sitting next to a gurgling creek, listening to the snap of the campfire and the soft sounds of the night. In the daytime we may hike, or I might spend an hour patiently stalking an animal with my camera and telephoto lens. Often my perseverance is rewarded in a perfect photograph! Also, we enjoy getting into the car, heading down a dirt road and seeing spectacular views few have taken the trouble to find. Sometimes the road isn ' t even on the map. We might drive for an hour before seeing another person, but the views are spectacular. I enjoy my profession very much but getting away from people, phones and city noise to the mountains is great — whether it ' s a weekend in the Appalachians or a month in the Rockies, it is my idea of para- dise! — Harry Wistrand, Biology 11(0)11 CO c .2 to CO CD 3 C ■o o What stands out in my early school days? My schedule. From kinder- garten through the ninth grade, I went to public schools in Honolulu from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., then sat through Chinese language school classes from 3 to 5 p.m., Mondays through Fridays. On Saturdays, 8 a.m. to noon, there were more Chinese school classes. Schooling in English was fun and exciting, but learning Chinese was a drag, especially since the latter was done under duress from home and school. The Chinese school principal used a memorable form of negative reinforcement. At the end of each semester, five students who ranked at the bottom of the class would be asked to visit the principal ' s office, stick out a hand, and receive two lashes from a long, narrow bamboo stick. I learned Chinese the hard way. What stands out in my college days at the University of Hawaii? My schedule. In my freshman year, R.O.T.C, required at that time, was at 7:30 a.m. Basketball prac- tice for the college team took up the time from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Then off to work as a waiter in a Waikiki Chinese restaurant from 6 p.m. to midnight. Fortunately, I could take cat naps in my classes in Euro- pean History and in Political Science as each class had an enrollment of about 500. However, I had to behave more properly later when I found myself in a course in Greek Drama with a Roman Catholic nun as the only other student in class. Several months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, classes for me resumed in the mornings, then off to work on the second shift, 2:30 to 11:00 p.m. at the Pearl Harbor navy yard. Thus, were the school days filled. — Kwai Sing Chang, Bible and Religion 11®; IPSYCIHOILOGY fHBinHiiLii KF dn Ij B ' X « » ffl H.-i ' ' 1 ■Mf n 3 HI k !

It ' s not easy bein ' green From the very first mention until the stories told on the Sunday after the dance, Black Cat is a memorable time. Before the activities actually begin, most fresh- men really do not know what to expect, and the pre- vailing thought seems to be, My God! What is all this confusion? One freshman said, If you didn ' t have Black Cat to look forward to, coming to Scott would be a drag. The dance, perhaps the most important part, does not always turn out to be the magic evening some expect. That was one of the worst nights of my life as 1 recall. While another frosh said she thought it was wonderful. Of course, the bonfire sticks out in the minds of freshmen. One freshmen thought, It was very sisterly — it kind of brought everyone together, kind of going back and forth; but another complained, I hate swaying when we sing our class songs. There is still some feeling of disappointment among the freshmen as to the controversy over the sopho- mores guessing Scouts. As one freshman put it, I didn ' t think it was fair; we were specific and they were general. But like everyone said, if they didn ' t guess it, it wo uld just ruin everything. One freshman commented that Black Cat threw our class together and after the bonfire it drew the whole school together. The production was another big part of Black Cat. It was a time you could get away with making a fool of yourself. It offers a good break — something to look forward to. Some freshmen felt it was difficult to elect Black Cat officers because they had not had time to get to know everyone. The pranks were mentioned often. I didn ' t appreciate my drawers being switched. Even so, most enjoyed the pranks played. Asked to sum up the week, freshmen gave varied answers. It was just a lot of fun. I don ' t see it as any big orientation though, and that ' s what they said it was. It was very traditional. I ' d like to participate more if I had time ... [Sj mf Little Known Freshman Stats When the members of the Class of 1983 arrived at A.S.C. in September, they weren ' t the only bewildered students on campus. Old-timers found themselves deluged by the sea of new faces and the prospect of learning 144 new names! Though the hoarde of freshmen at last dissolved into indivi- duals who became friends, statistics on the latest batch of Scotties remain interesting: Test results showed the Class of 1983 to be the strongest academically in several years. On the SAT, their average combined score was 1067. Average verbal and math scores were 538 and 529, respectively. On the ACT, freshmen achieved an average score of 25. Thirty percent ranked in the top 5% of their high school graduating class, while 51% were in the top 10%. Six freshmen were valedictorians, and 4 received college-sponsored National Merit Scholarships. Geographically, only 44% of the group were from Georgia; a total of 21 states was represented. Other freshmen arrived in Decatur from Austria, Puerto Rico and even Colombia. 17 ' ) Whatever happened to the ' Good or Days ? Brunches, receptions, meetings, seminars, parties and dis- cussions flood fall quarter, exhausting the participants. Classes only appear difficult, for grades remain unrealized dreams. Initially life at Scott can be deceptive, until unwelcome reality strikes! All Tech parties are not fun. Worse yet, all Tech men are not handsome. Intelligent and interesting. High school A ' s become college C ' s, and extra-curricular involvement eats away study or party time. Roommate situations are not always matches made In heaven, and long distance Is a poor substitute for being there. These realizations create acute freshmen home- sickness and romanticism for the good old days of co-ed classes and free time. Although the transition Is difficult, it is not impossible, as the Class of 1983 will testify. True, college holds disappointments and joys, but both are shared by new friends, the best available remedy for fall, winter, and even spring quarter homesickness, ' i Boy Scouts: Under .J BKSMi fflHHB.

Sophomores were on the move during the long six week Thanksgiving and Christmas break. Nicci Pittman Ryke and Lee Kite took a jaunt with Constance Shaw to Spain for four weeks of classes and travel. Maureen Smyth and her roommate, Margaret Phillips, journeyed to Maureen ' s home in Maracaebo, Venezuela and enjoyed fam- ous tourist spots and sailing. Terry Michael visited Ft. Lauderdale to go sailing with Greg von Zielinski and family. Bonnie Brooks, Crystal Ball, Peggy Davis, Cathy Garrigues, Sonia Gordon, Gretchen Lindsay, Janet Musser, and Susan Proctor (hope no one ' s missing) trav- elled with the Glee Club to Russia and spent six days in London, three days in Leningrad and three days in Moscow. Karen Ramsbottom worked at a ski resort in Keystone, Colorado for six weeks, while Marjory Sive- wright went skiing in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Traveling or working, the sophs made the most of their precious free time! [ Ain ' t We Smart For the sophomores, the first year of hard work, trials, and tribulations was rewarding. Perhaps they weren ' t quite as unequipped as they had thought to brave the famed academic atmosphere of Agnes Scott, for this year ' s Class Scholarship Trophy was proudly awarded to the class of ' 82. This trophy, established by the Mortar Board Chapter of 1956-57, is awarded ann- ually to the class which, for the past session, has earned an academic average higher than three preceding classes at that same level. Reassured by their academic achievement, the sophomores confronted the Big Spring Dilemma of finally declaring a major. This was an easy decision for some but a difficult process of elimination for others! Luckily, the soph was able to double or to create her own personalized interdepartmental major; And, of course, it ' s never (well, almost!) too late to change. You ' ve made a good start, sophs; hang in there and one day you ' ll get through! [ Maisano ' s Musings Good afternoon. I ... uh ... I would like to . . . uh . . . talk to you today about a serious condition plaguing the youth of Agnes Scott community. This condition generally attacks stu- dents between the ages of 19 and 20, and the recovery rate is a matter of much debate. The condition, you ask? Quite com- monly, it is known as Sophomorism. I would like to illustrate the vast implications of an affliction such as sophomorism with a case study of 150 women attending the aforementioned Agnes Scott College, who attained sophomore status during the school year 1979-80. Also known as the Class of 1982, these women exhibited what most might call an extreme strain of the dreaded ailment. The symptoms, you ask? Several. First, the young women were heard utilizing excessively the ten-letter word peppermint. Although much attention has been given the seemingly nonsensical term, little or no conclu- sion has been reached as to its translation. Experts have of- fered what some consider wild theories, such as the hypoth- esis that peppermint was used symbolically in reference to the class as a whole, but the one most favored seems to be that the term indirectly represents another characteristic of the women: excessive consumption of food, or pigging out. An- other feature exhibited by the Class of 1982 was a wild type of enthusiasm culminating in what must be held as the ultimate sanction, a Black Kitty. It has even been reported that the women became particularly clandestine for a period of seven days, during which they donned similar uniforms, sang, yelled, raided, pillaged, and of course, pigged out. Sophomorism was described at one point by a noted psychiatrist as a period of storm and stress. An accurate term. The sophomores were constantly faced with intense and often stressful decisions. Georgia Tech or Emory? Wendy ' s or Athens Pizza? 8:30 Eng- lish or continual sleep? Green Izod or pink button-down? To their intellectual credit, however, the sophomores never be- came hung up on the trivial, such as declaring a major, or even less important, planning a major. Why get tied down in the prime of life? Yet, for all the experiments, observation, case studies and interviews, the experts have reached only one . . . yes, uno . . . consistent conclusion: that is, for all the tension, trial, tribulation; for all the agony of English 211 and the thrill of a TGIF; for all the 2 a.m. popcorn parties and acute lack of rest, MOT ONE SOPHOMORE WOULD WANT ANYTHING DIFFERENTLY. Perhaps this reason can be analyzed sociologi- cally or psychologically, but I will not take up my valuable time to do so at this point. 1 will, however, say and recommend that it would be more than satisfactory to pose succinctly and accurately the following question: Why be anything less than the best? Thank you. ( Scouting Boy Scouts Boy Scouts? The search for the honorable mascot led the Class of 1982 to the depths of every building on campus and to victory, at last, under the leadership of the illustrious Beth Maisano, in the winning of the Black Kitty award. Their sister song, Blues Sisters left the campus in stitches over the wit and charm of the lyrics with the addition of sun- lasses worn with each performance of the song. Sportsman- ship characterized this year ' s sophomore class along with the doubt over whether they had actually guessed the fresh- man class mascot. However, despite any conflict, the sopho- more class reigned in wit and enthusiasm during Black Cat week. Participation on the part of the class of 1982 was phenomenal as the campus continually saw red and white jerseys capped with Peppermint Patty red baseball hats singing their fight song triumphantly during Honors Day convocation, field day of Black Cat week, and assembly for the Black Cat production. Thank you. Peppermint Patty, for an exciting Black Cat.

This year ' s junior class was governed by tfiree officers, Sarah Campbell, Lydia Reasor, and Laura Klettner. Sarah, a biology major, is an active member of SDT and hopes to pursue a career in dance therapy. Lydia, a chemistry major, transferred her sophomore year from William and Mary and would enjoy working for a lab or corporation in the future. She is active in both the Dolphin Club and the Hockey Team. Laura Klettner, of Memphis, Tennessee, is a psychology major who divides her time among the Dolphin Club, Rep Council and the Junior Class. The three officers were concerned with class unity and spirit, because the decrease in class size after the Sophomore year often leads to a seemingly nonchalant attitude. Sarah, Lydia and Laura worked hard to create enthusiasm through class projects such as the Black Cat Production and Junior Jaunt. In the fall the entire campus was entertained by the juniors ' production of Scott ' s Amusin ' . The highlight of winter quar- ter was Junior Jaunt. Gnder the supervision of Junior Jaunt chairman Nancy Brock, the campus used The Wizard of Oz and the creative abilities of each class to raise money for a local charity. [ fP Six Juniors Trade Decatur For Europe in their third year — that time when students at last feel completely accustomed to life at Agnes Scott — a few adventurous Scotties left Buttrick behind and spent their junior year abroad. Opportunities for travel, for concentrat- ed study, for experience in other cultures, and for indepen- dence were some of the advantages which influenced six members of the class of 1981 to enroll in fine universities in Europe. Jeanne Cole and Diane Shaw spent the year at the Univer- sity of Exeter in Southern England. Jeanne ' s studies cen- tered on history, while Diane worked in the field of medieval studies. Nancy Nelson concentrated on English at the Uni- versity of St. Andrews in Scotland. Mary Beth DuBose and Julie Oliver both enrolled in Sweetbriar College ' s Junior Year in France Program and attended universities in Paris. Terri Wong, through the Smith College Junior Year Abroad Program, studied German in Hamburg. k H Scottie for a Year — Is that sort of like Queen for a Day ? This year we have four special foreign students who are as diverse as their native countries. Catharina Bostman, from Vanda, Finland, thinks that stu- dents here are more interested in activities than European students are. She feels that in Atlanta, there ' s so much to do, you never get board. After her year at ASC, she will study for three years in Zurich, Switzerland to become an interpreter. Marie-Claire Geradin, from Perpignan, France, is the French Hall assistant. She describes campus life as very pleasant, and states that, Everyone is different from his neighbor. Liz Kennedy, from Brisbane, Australia, notices a national- ism in the school which she thinks is good. The only problem, she observes, is that a lot of people here just don ' t know about other countries. Gabriele Schropp, the German Hall assistant from INeckar- sum, W. German, has graduated from the American equiv- alent of college and intends to attend medical school. She says she really enjoys Atlanta because her sister lives here also. ; Keep It Under Your Hat What is the mysterious and elusive event which, along with Dean Gary ' s birthday, is the best kept secret on cam- pus? As every good junior knows, the event is the traditional capping ceremony held each spring. After three long years, the Yellow Pages discovered the thrill of being dubbed seniors. Though the juniors knew the date of the ceremony, its content was kept a secret until that night. Following a special junior-senior dinner in the dinning hall, the juniors, adorned in white, were capped by the seniors. Capping was a special time for both classes. As the juniors frantically memorized all three verses of God of the Marching Centuries, the seniors, with mixed emotions, helped them learn We Are Tired Old Seniors and handed over their privileges to the Class of 1981. . ' Agnes Scott, Agnes Scott, You ' re One H of a college! Black Cat 1979 was, as always, a special event for all the classes, but for the juniors it began in the spring. The Yellow Pages selected the musical, The Sound of Music as a basis for the production, Scott ' s Amusin ' . Over the summer, Jeni Giles and her committee worked diligently to capture in their script the excitement and confu- sion experienced by freshmen their first few weeks at Scott. Elizabeth Dorsey wrote the musical ' s lyrics. Led by Susan Nicol, Production Director, over 75 juniors, sophomores, seniors, and RTC ' s dedicated their energy and time to the show. Assisted by Mary Ebinger, Assistant Direc- tor, and Carol Gorgus, Musical Director, the production miracu- lously fell into place, and the curtain went up on October 5, 1979. Centering on two freshmen, Mary and Theresa, the produc- tion showed their adjustment to life at ASC. From the trauma of moving in and new roommates, fraternity parties and blind dates to the fun of friends and dorm popcorn parties, the production attempted to present humorously, as well as realis- tically, life at Scott. Classroom scenes featured Mr. Maul and Madame Greenrow. A combination of hard work and time, the production was the official welcome gift to the freshmen from thei r sister class. It showed not only the juniors ' excitement at having a new sister class but reflected the memory they will always have of life at Scott.

IL41I1 -»,«C|11S1» — The library can put you to sleep. — It usually does. — The need to do laundry is inversely proportional to how many pairs of clean underwear you have. — The amount a person is likely to drink (or eat) at a given point in time is often directly proportional to how much work is due. — There is never enough time to study. — There is always plenty of time to party. — Little study plus lots of party equals minor nervous disorders before exams, papers, and after meals. — But meals can cause minor stomach disorders even without school stress. — The times we ' ll remember best are not the hours spent studying, but the hours spent with each other.

Lisa Hope ' 80 — 34, 36, 38, 46, The Cookie Monster Editor ' s note: In January 1980, the Profile ran an article written by Cookie Hooper which was directed at exposing an omnipresent undercurrent of conflict between RTC ' s and the boarding students. She used the parking situation, which the RTC ' s and day students were trying to recon- struct, as the springboard of her argument for such misun- derstanding. As was pointed out in a subsequent edition. Cookie had cleverly exposed a problem by employing ex- aggeration to present the errors of judgment on both sides of the fence. However, opinions expressed by others, both in the Profile and on campus, showed that not a few people found the article bombastic, illogical and emotional, rather than rational and intellectual. Many also felt that any prob- lem existed only in the minds of a few — that, generally speaking, the RTC ' s and boarding students got along as well as varied personalities and opinions would or could permit in any situation. The fairy tale, which begins on page 1 75, will, we hope, bring out a few points that a rational rebuttal might miss, such as: Why were the Day Students never mentioned as part of the misunderstand- ings? There are a hundred sides to every story. Ask Wil- liam Faulkner. nm 57, 159 Johnson, Melody Anne 83 Johnson, Sharon Leigh ' 82 Jun.

Even with this distinction, Ag- ony Spott was a town of modest means, for all who worked there were united in a common goal: baking. As in every business, there existed a variety of personalities and situa- tions among the workers. The major- ity lived in the town and could walk to the factory each day. Then there were the workers who lived in outly- ing areas and had to drive into town each day. Finally, some workers had left the town in earlier years to seek their fortune elsewhere but ended up returning to the profession of their predecessors. These people were known as RTB ' s (Return To Baking). And all of the groups worked togeth- er to create their cookies. Now it came to pass that the city ' s Mayor, the venerable C.C. Biggs, de- cided to redesign the parking regula- tions so that the business traffic would flow unimpeded. Consequent- ly, the commuting workers were forced to park in outlying areas be- cause closer spots had been under- standbly taken by the intown work- ers who had little need to move their cars. This decision caused great con- sternation among both the Outlying Workers and the RTB ' s. However, the RTB ' s, already a vocal lot, pro- posed a petition which the Outlying Workers helped research and gladly signed. But the focus remained on the RTB ' s, for their worldly demea- nor did not permit fading into the crowd so easily. Then came the Cookie Monster Rockwell.

' 83 — 45, 123 The Cookie Crumbles The Cookie Monster would appear in Agony Spott once every ten years and devour as many cookies as he could shove into his blue furry body. This time, the Cookie Mon- ster struck in the dead of night and no one was around to protect the factory. As if the recent parking controversy (which was solved) had not been enough to distinguish the RTB ' s, the Cookie Monster had to help. In the factory, he devoured and crum- bled more of their cookies than would have been thought possible. He made only a passing glance at the Intown workers ' cookies and did not even touch the Outlying Work- ers ' cookies. Maybe the RTB ' s cookies were better, but the deference definitely pointed out a difference. To some, the choice signified an uncomfortable and unwelcome singular- ity about the RTB ' s. But to others, the singling out was a preverse honor, perhaps pointing out higher quality, but also the loss of that quality to a nonappreciative, nonth- oughtful blue furry Cookie Monster. This latter group band- ed with the RTB ' s and secured the factory against further attacks by the Cookie Monster. It has been said that those who felt threatened by the newfound awareness of the differences of the RTB ' s, who had been complacent to let all bakers be equal before the attack that distinguished them, left Agony Spott and fol- lowed the trail of crumbs to the lair of the Cookie Monster, there to remain forever . . . a ( DAN TROY PGBLICATIOMS COMSULTANT 1752 EAST BAMK DRIVE MARIEITA, GEORGIA 30067 993 1578 — HOME 872-7066 — OFFICE GONRMY We help make good times last for a lifetime. . . n m 11©(D Bottled Under Authority of Ttie Coca-Cola Company by THE ATLANTA COCA-COLA BOTTLING COMPANY.

FROM THE POPE In One Era And Out The Other Ten years in which Americans suffered growing disillusionment about their leaders, their insti- tutions, even the value of their currency — and came to the stark realization that there were hard limits to the riches of the planet; in which they were torn against themselves over an undeclared war on the far side of the world; a President was brought down after he used the power of his office to cover up his own illegal acts and those of his lieutenants; oil-rich Arab nations transformed the power balance of the world; chiefs of state who were sworn enemies shook hands in a bold try for peace in the Mideast; a mad preacher called his flock to death — and an abundance of other shocking, horrifying, edifying and tenderly moving events. The quotation above says it all about the seventies in just about as succinct a set of terms as are humanly possible. Life magazine then went on to identify a few terms which one might associate with the decade just past. adidas Brand-name graffiti appearing primarily on running shoes, including a pair that glows in the dark. banana Chastised for the scary language he used about the recession, inflation-fighter Alfred Kahn vowed to substitute more soothing terms, like banana.

Eat breakfast with a smile on your face. Wear your everyday, good clothes (which you don ' t consider good clothes ) every day (even Saturday). Keep them on even while you study. Never wear your jeans when they get lighter than deep blue. Patches? Never! Always iron your shirts (especially the solid-color ones) whether they need it or not. Keep the dry-cleaners in business with your wool skirts and sweaters. Never be seen with dirty hair or no make-up — possible exception: exam time, when all women are equal. Study diligently except for appear- ances at Claiborne ' s, PJ ' s and Moe ' s (do people still go there?). Play tennis or any other in game of your choice. Patronize and party with the in fraternities at Tech or Emory. Never miss a TGIF. Arrive promptly at the dining hall for all means. Pretend you ' re on a diet and then have one serving of everything. Raid the ice cream freezer. In sum, play hard, study some and always look good. Make Agnes proud of you. Counterpoint: Agnes, you neat so-and-so! Don ' t dare to pass off rigid dress standards as the only way. Many people can only exist in a relaxed (i.e. sloppy) demeanor (by nature). Wear only the finest in faded jeans and wrinkled shirts. Do not get out of bed until fifteen minutes before class, dive into you clothes, snarf breakfast and arrive in class with or after the bell. Never wear make-up to class. Your professor might not recognize you. Curlers? Only on Sunday and maybe not even then. Harbor dirty laundry in your closet. Resort to nice clothes only when you run out of comfortable ones. Never be ashamed of wearing a scarf over dirty hair, as it is the sign of a busy woman (I keep telling myself). Study diligently. Comfortable clothes make even the library liva- ble. (Falling asleep in a skirt could be embarrassing.) Relax with a good beer, a rock concert, or by breaking your room- mate ' s beach records. Party at Manuel ' s, Poets ' or with a fun fraternity at Tech or Emory. Always arrive late to dinner (you are busy, remember?). Eat elswhere if you can. (They do not serve beer in the dining hall yet. Some question whether they serve food.) Maintain your diet by eating just a salad — and then have one of every dessert, including ice cream. In sum, play hard, pretend to study and look busy. Scott is watching over you! n: mn ' i ' ve Got The Laundry Room Blues. The laundry room — yeah, you know the place. That cubby hole in the dorm where the school has shoved a couple of washers and dryers. Then, they ' ve taken bets on how many girls will decide to wash clothes at the same time. You consequently encounter mass confusion and a potential riot situation. Certain personality types inevitably surface at these times. The vari- ety would boggle the minds of researchers, should any firm classifica- tion be attempted. The general types that can be observed at Scott include: Norma Underwear: Norma waits until the last possible moment to do her wash. The traditional sign of an impending trip to the laundry room is a gradual disappearance of clean underwear. She also begins wearing last year ' s fashions and any old pair of jeans, no matter how faded. Norma can be found in the laundry room when there is the least possibility of the machines ' being in use (after all, she has put off doing her wash; now she wants to get it over with). This time is most likely to lie between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m. or on the night of any formal. Felicia Clnger: Felicia does her wash whenever she feels the need to make everything smell good. She uses those little smelly Bounce sheets in abundance and, in the process, deodorizes the entire dorm. She has even been known to wash clean clothes for the sake of smell. For some unknown reason, Felicia never has any problem getting into the laundry room. She is there so much that she sees the Maytag repairman. Her hobby is collecting quarters and dimes. Lisa Leavit: Lisa has a major problem. She remembers to do her laundry, but she forgets to pick it up. Perhaps she thinks her wash will jump from the washer to the dryer (if she leaves a dime), fold itself and then obediently go to her room. Generally, she does remem- ber to put it in the dryer, and she may even bring a dime. But she has found her clothes in the laundry room a week later when she brings down the next load. Sue Ann Sweetwater: Sue Ann has the simplest solution to doing laundry: she takes it home to mother. It does create a problem when mother lives a couple of hundred miles away and the laundry has to be mailed. Mailmen have died from less. Sue Ann does this, not meanness or laziness, but because she just never figured out how to do laundry. And she would hate winding up with navy blue under- wear. mi FINAL EXAMINATION Check the value of your liberal arts education. inSTROCTIOISS: Read each question carefully. Answer all questions. Time limit 4 hours. HISTORY: Describe the history of the papacy, from its origins to the present day, concentrating especially but not exclusively on its social, political, economic, religious and philosophical impact on Europe, Asia, America and Africa. Be brief, concise, specific. MEDICINE: You have been provided with a razor blade, a piece of gauze and a bottle of scotch. Remove your appendix. Do not suture until your work has been in- spected. You have fifteen minutes. If you have no ap- pendix, either kidney may be substituted. Extra credit for both kidneys. PUBLIC SPEAKING: 2600 riot-crazed aborigines are storm- ing the classroom. Calm them. You may use any ancient language except Latin or Greek. Only universally recog- nized hand gestures permitted. MUSIC: Write a piano concerto. Orchestrate and perform it with flute and drum. You will find a piano under your seat. PSYCHOLOGY: Based on your knowledge of their works, evaluate the emotional stability, degree of adjustment and repressed frustrations of the following; Alexander of Aphrodisias, Ramses II, Gregory of Nices, and Hamm- urabi. Suport your evaluation with quotes from each man ' s work, making appropriate references. It is not necessary to translate. SOCIOLOGY: Estimate the sociological problems which might accompany the end of the world. Construct an experiment to test your theory. PHYSICS: Derive the universe. You may use the back side of your paper if necessary. No calculators per- mitted. ENGINEERING: The disassembled parts of a high-powered rifle have been placed in a box on your desk. You will also find an instruction manual, printed in Swahili. In ten minutes a hungry Bengal tiger will be admitted to the room. Take whatever action you feel appropriate. Be prepared to justify your decision. POLITICAL SCIENCE: There is a red telephone on the desk beside you. Start World War III. Report at length on its socio-political effects, if any. PHILOSOPHY: Sketch the development of human thought; estimate its significance. Compare with the development of any other kind of thought. ECONOMICS: Develop a realistic plan for refinancing the national debt. Trace the possible effects of your plan in the following areas: Cubism, the Vitamin E controversy, the wave theory of light. Outline a method from all points of view. Point out the deficiencies in your point of view, as demonstrated in your answer to the last question. GENERAL KNOWLEDGE: Describe in detail. Be objective and specific. EXTRA CREDIT: Define the universe. Give three examples. g(Q)( When I Grow Gp I want to be like: Jane Fonda Farrah Fawcett-Majors Miss Piggy Raquel Welch Barbra Streisand Harry Crews other: I want to marry a man like: Robert Redford Paul Newman Robert Redford and Paul Newman Kermit the Frog Harry Crews other: survive Agnes Scott long enough to grow up get a job get a job that pays big bucks marry a man with a job that pays big bucks marry Paul Newman and Robert Redford commit social suicide other: in Atlanta in palatial Decatur with my parents as far from Scott as 1 can get in Siberia other: I want ultimately to: be independently wealthy be poor but happy own my own business be President be Jane Fonda be Harry Crews ,1 u f - i® S£l;, Bg S Hw B 1 ■ 1 ' - ' yi r 1 M H . B ' 1 0 ■ ■ :j | 7hov offofod mo powor For some foolish reason, 1 thought that this would be the easiest page in the book to complete. Silly me. It ' s rather difficult to believe that three years of hard work, frustrations, aggravations, exhaustion and tears are almost over. And I wanted this job. My friends and staff have watched me go from relative sanity to total lunacy — all over 208 pages. But the disbelief is not from the relief and release that the job is very nearly done; rather, it is more like watching your first-born toddle out into the world. You can only hope you have prepared her well, and then feel that horrid sense of loss that she is no longer there. This book is my dream child. She is the product of my plans and the willing aid, creativity, help and faith of a magnificent staff. Without them, the 1 980 Silhouette would be nothing. Even with such mass support, a few people deserve special thanks: Martha Sheppard. my fastidious Faculty editor and successor, who will be smart enough to ed 7the book and not try to produce it; Susan rSicol, that penny-pinching Business Manager; Marina Costarides, a real Godsend in Ads; Sarah Fairburn for service above and beyond the level of normal human endeavor in the area of photography. Extra special thanks to Dan Troy, especially for the night he thought he was the reason I burst into tears (don ' t flatter yourself. Dan). Thanks also go to two non-staff members who contributed time and their talents to the book: Karen Webster, for a phenomenal cover, and Mr. Staven for the times he helped me out of a pinch. Beyond this I owe my sanity to concerned friends, most particularly Laramie, Kathy and Ceil. This book is for you, Agnes. I hope you will be as proud of it as 1 am. It ' s a damn good book. Yours in benevolent despotism. Ki -iSwaBSffisass BESSSsSiSSSsSSteKiSiSS fSS ”
