Text from Pages 1 - 56 of the 1955 volume:

THE SHIELD 1955 Hail to thee our Alma Mater, Seminary Fair; May achievements crown thy labors Is our earnest prayer. Deep and true as those blue waters Thou art reared above, May the characters thou moldest Hold thee in their love. Pure as yonder snow-clad mountains Where our glances fall, May we in the years to follow, Answer to thy call. Chorus: Hearts turned toward our Alma Mater, May our lives at length Prove thy daughters bear thy motto ' On from Strength to Strength. " MISS MARJORIE AVALON We shall never forget those vocabulary lessons to be learned or those quarterly revisions to be mastered. We rebelled, but now we see you have been patiently preparing us, not only for college, but for every task in the future. Because you taught us to " be specific " in our four years together, we are progressing in our thinking and in the expression of our thoughts. We profited from your faith in us, and we always knew you were doing your utmost to help us. To you, Miss Avalon, we dedicate this Shield, that it may in some way express our gratitude and our affection. MISS RUTH JENKINS HEADMISTRESS How can we measure the help you have given us, whether in planning the costumes for our grand entrance at Halloween or in directing us to the right college? Each one of us has had occasion to sense the depth of your understanding, the strength of your ideals, and the inspiration of your faith. Your presence at our birthday parties always meant fun, and the reports of your trips will give us smiling memories in the future. You made us recognize the beauty and value of the chapel services and you guided us spiritually. This was a gift whose significance we will apprehend more clearly as we continue to grow. MR. AND MRS. HARNEY It was our privilege this year to have Mr. and Mrs. Harney, Annie Wright ' s daughter and son-in-law, visit the Seminary. Although their visit was short, it gave them rime to see very clearly how much this school means to us. At an assembly Mrs. Harney modeled Annie Wright ' s dress and a pair of her shoes and showed us her mother ' s bracelet. Mrs. Harney also had the last railroad spike to be driven in the first railroad linking the East and the West. One of the items Mrs. Harney presented to the Seminary was Annie ' s card case to which is attached a watch. We were drawn closer to Annie Wright by what Mrs. Harney said about her mother, and in return, we tried to tell about our life here and the mean- ingful traditions of our school in such a way that Annie Wright ' s daughter could become a part of them. We were sad to see Mr. and Mrs. Harney leave, for in the few days they had been here we had come to love them; however, they promised to return soon. Just as Mr. and Mrs. Harney left, full of wonderful memories of their visit and a new awareness of the spirit of Annie Wright which pervades the Seminary, so we, too, are leaving with the knowledge that the high ideals of this school are a part of our characters and our memories, and that the training we received here will never leave us. THE CHAPEL The significance of this and every year ' s activities we have found in the Chapel, which is for each of us the heart of our school. SPIRITUAL LIFE As we leave the Seminary, we realize that the part of our life here which we will miss the most is the daily Chapel services. There we heard Mr. Wood- hams read the lessons and we always looked forward to his weekly sermons. None of us will forget the beautiful Christmas and Easter Carol services, nor the contributions of the choir to these or the other services throughout the year. Many of us have shown our appreciation by serving in Raynor Guild, and others have helped to raise funds to spread Christianity through Service League. We have grown in body, and through our spiritual experiences we have grown in spirit. Now we have sung our Alma Mater in the Chapel for the last time and have put away the chapel caps we were always losing, but we will never put away our spiritual gain. We have learned a faith in God that will stay with us always. The Reverend Canon Arthur Bell, Chaplain Emeritui The Right Reverend Stephen F. Bayne, Jr., D. D., S. T. D., Bishop of Olympia.

SENIOR CLASS SONG We ' re proud to be rhe class of ' 55. For highest honor we will always strive. Our colors, green and white, We ' ll keep flying high; Their fame and glory will never die. The years may pass and we will go away, But in our hearts the love will stay, And the goal for which we ' ll always strive Will be the honor of ' 55. irk SENIOR CLASS Many years have passed since we climbed the willow tree and made whips of its branches to urge our panting steeds across the schoolyard. Now at noon we sit around the lunch tables and talk about college or May Day or graduation. Our several opinions never fail to create heated discussions in our classes, but we have barely mastered the fundamentals and already we realize the bigger problems that face the whole world. Traditions have suddenly taken on a new perspective. We won ' t have a second chance to dress as people from the Emerald City of Oz and be the center of attraction at Hal- loween. Some of us will still return to see the Christmas and Easter Carol Services, but we won ' t be wearing the white veils that had a habit of slipping off our clean hair. We shall miss the carnival at Christmas when our diets and calories were temporarily for- gotten, and the dances and R. J. ' s talks on how to dance correctly. We are the biggest class in Annie ' s history to wear white caps and gowns and sit at baccalaureate, to kneel before the bishop and receive gold crosses. We won ' t forget these things and we will never forget each other, though miles and years separate us. Harriet Loomis Sinclair, PRESIDENT Ut, who came during her junior year, made friends quickly. We sense a certain shyness in her which is often overcome by her interest in people. There is in her a sincere desire to learn, and her capabilities are evident in her class discussions. Ut loves swimming and this year acquired a new enthusiasm for skiing. Margaret Elizabeth Gardner, SECRETARY-TREASURER Betsy s aim in everything she does is perfec- tion, not only in her studies, but in being a good sport when she is teased about her A s or anything else. Though Betsy was kept busy in many activities, she still had time to be helpful and friendly, whether giving an assignment or hunting costumes for a play. Arden Lee Worth, VICE-PRESIDENT Ardie will always be associated with comic hats of all sizes, shapes, and descriptions. In her art work, too. she displayed this jaunty per- sonality, and many posters were brightened by her drawings of animal faces. Ardie worked quietly, but she could be counted on to help whether collecting money for Service League, typing for Ascent, or doing anything else that needed to be done. Patricia Ruth Abrams Abe s Hospital Experience " in Ascent gave us concrete evidence of her capacity to under- stand those in need of sympathy and help. These qualities will serve her well when she becomes a nurse. Abe loved a good time and her lively banter contributed much to parties. Suzanne Baker Throughout her years in Upper School, Suzy has helped to manage many activities such as the Christmas Carnival and the Paddock Post. We ll always remember her reserving the right to differ and often upholding the minority view. She was a sympathetic listener to those who wanted to pour out their troubles. Elizabeth Anne Birbeck Betty likes to talk — outside of class. Her cheerfulness survives even tests and term pa- pers, and her sense of responsibility leads her to work for the welfare of the class with pride in its accomplishments. With her happy frame of mind and optimism. Betty should make a fine nurse. Lillian Ruth Brown In spite of Jill ' s quiet ways and her coming to the class only last year, she has formed gen- uine friendships. Although she has decided she wants to teach younger children, we know from her work on the Paddock Post and Ascent that she would also make an excellent secretary. Anne Cameron Anne is famous for her subtle humor and dry comments which brightened our classes. When a dance was in the offing, the infirmary seemed to hold the only safety for Anne: but now we wonder if that will always be the case. Anne ' s fine mind and quiet thoughtfulness won our respect and affection. Mary Etta Carson We won ' t forget Mare ' s unforced and con- tagious laughter or her hilarious lab experi- ments. All of us were aware of her forthright- ness and honesty and admired her capacity for deep convictions. We ll remember her for her unauthoritative yet forceful influence as Vice- President of the Student Body. V Victoria Anne Cromie Vicki is an out-of-door girl. She is one who would rather play hockey or basketball than attend a frilly tea. She will be remembered for her timid voice in the classroom, but we can t dispel the picture of her shouting orders at players on the hockey field. J Patricia Anne Day Pat was the idol of baby corridor and her poise and charm always gave visitors a favor- able impression of the personality of our class. She served faithfully in Raynor Guild and was conscientious and helpful in the training of new girls who " tried out " for this service. Gail Louise Dillingham Dill, our artist, not only amused us with the cute little faces she drew on our papers during Civ. classes, which she invariably labeled " you " , but she drew seriously, too. Many of our dances and festivities have displayed her rollicking figures that are so like their exuber- ant artist — except they don ' t talk. V Georgeanne Duffy Duffy, and she was even called so by her teachers, could be a tennis champion without a doubt. Even her walk, that enviable tennis walk, reveals her grace and skill. Her reserve never kept us from being aware of her laughing eyes. She has been a good leader and has won our loyal admiration as President of the Ath- letic Association. Mary Lynn Elias Though Lynn was quiet, those of us who were close to her. knew the humor that was a part of her. We noticed her perceptiveness in class discussions and benefited by her frank opinions. She has a fine mind and surely will make a success at whatever she chooses to fol- low. Martha Anne Fisher Annie, with her grace and poise, has con- tributed much to the class social functions. Yet there is in Annie a certain Iittle-girlishness. shown through that inimitable squeak of sur- prise and the blush which covered her face when she expressed an opinion in class. Annie makes little show of her fairness, but the class has always respected it. Arlene Sandra Fleming Arlene with her short crisp curls and blunt opinions is our modern artist. Her art work is straight-forward yet effective. She finds it easier to express her ideas through drawing than words. Arlene loves children as much as they love her and means to make working with them a part of her future. Emily Lynne Greenwood Back of Lynne ' s easy going manner are a fine character and a sense of responsibility. Shield Board, date committees and teas gave her opportunity to display her tactfulness and willingness to help. Lynne ' s ability to work with small children will serve her well, both as a kindergarten teacher and as a wife and mother. Janice Graves Janny ' s love of laughter and fun didn ' t keep her from showing poise and friendliness on more formal occasions. Her sympathetic nature combined with her interest in people made us turn to her for understanding in many moods. With her sense of responsibility she will make a successful social leader in her community. A 7 Martha Hood Hastings Mart s abilities are shown through her ac- complishments, not only in all of her studies but in Masque, creative writing, and this year as Shield editor. Though Mart is not an emo- tional person, she seldom subdues her laughter. Her love of reading and sincere interest in learning should make her college work out- standing. Judy Anne Hogendobler Judy has been active in dramatics, both in- side and outside of school. Her portrayal of Uncle Chris in " I Remember Mama " is un- forgettable. Judy s interest in the subject of homemaking and her capacity for independent thinking in that field won her an award in the Betty Crocker Search for the Homemaker of Tomorrow. Patricia Lou Judkins Jud, with her exuberant good spirits, can plan a party better or cheer louder at the games than anyone else. Her interest in helping others to have fun made her an excellent So- cial Committee Chairman. Jud never holds a grudge, and though she raises her eyebrow, the twinkle in her eye shows it s only fun. Lucinda Mary Lane Lucindas reserve is a covering for trie deep convictions she has within. Her tolerant atti- tudes are colored by her love of nature and the warm and sympathetic responses which belong to her rural environment. On Shield she served as Business Manager and was always ready to help the other members. Sharon Nickey McLallen Shug ' s warm and generous heart leads her to help those in need whenever she is able. She never intentionally hurts another person, and her willingness to try to please everyone, made her a fine Senior Movie Chairman. Shug ' s spirit of wanting to befriend others al- ways spreads to those around her who in turn become more considerate. Wendy Carol McLallen Wendy ' s taste in clothes should have a chance to express itself if she carries out her plans. However, clothes don ' t make the girl. As Student Body President, Wendy consist- ently put forth her quiet tact and charm. She loves a party, and a party is made livelier with her infectious laughter and gay smile. 1 55 7 Katherine Gard Mott Kathy. the newest member of our class, sur- prised us all by not seeming to find it difficult to take us in stride. We regret the fact that we had so short a time in which to get to know her, but the interest and ability she has shown in creative writing make us believe that some- day her reactions might become more apparent through her writing. Heather Georgina Spence Heather has an all around interest in artistic expression. She seldom missed a concert and was a valuable member of the modern dance group. Just as the class often used her ability to decorate, sew or design, so will her future be governed by artistic expression, whether in homemaking, merchandising or dress design- ing. Gaye Elizabeth Titcomb Gaye came to us in the middle of her junior year and began at once to take her place in a quiet, unassuming, but effective way. She is a willing worker and has an ability to act well in any situation. The lunch tables were al- ways made brighter by her exclamation, " Let s have a party! " 1 Eleanor Gertrude Walker Ellie had this year, as Service League Chair- man, an opportunity to express her interest in helping those less fortunate than she is. With her ability to lead others by example and her friendly cheerfulness, we can see her becoming the kind of nurse whose warm and wholesome good humor will have a beneficial effect on others. Dorothea Helen Weiss Dorrie has many talents. She both plays the piano and sings well, has had leading roles in several plays and is a fine scholar. We were often impressed by her intelligent and mature comments in class. In spite of her many activi ties, Dorrie still has time to relax and she does love a party. Margaret Ann Wilson Peg ' s love of fun found expression in her novel decorations for the Christmas Carnival. If chairman of a committee, she could get others to co-operate and if a member of one, she was both helpful and willing. Peg s enthu- siastic participation in sports and dramatics and her qualities of leadership resulted in her being selected as key girl. Patricia Ann Wolfe Pat has acquired a faith in God which never lessens. Though she is quiet in manner, the integrity which rules her life and her high ideals have earned our sincere respect. She works hard at all she does, but her great love is being outdoors, especially if a picnic or ten- nis game is in the offing. Grace Phoebe Wooster Grace, as her name implies, showed the quiet, unassuming graciousness which made her invaluable as a class hostess. She has served well as she shared in the religious life of the Seminary and this year she broadened her interests by voluntarily teaching Sunday School at Christ Church. Dorothea Alice Youngberg Dorrie. with her ringing laugh and thought- ful gaze, has a great love and understanding for music and poetry. She enjoys nature and outdoor life and feels much at home there. Dorrie showed literary ability by her work both on the Shield and Ascent, and her desire to understand people enhances her hope of be- coming a writer. i MAY DAY, 1955 Each year that we participated in the May Day Ceremony, our thoughts turned to our own May Day. For some of us that anticipa- tion began twelve years ago and has sharpened each year. It is this anticipation, growing stronger each year, that makes May Day so meaningful. Our May Day was wonderful, just as we had pictured it would be for so long. The dancing seemed the most colorful and expres- sive ever done. Sandra carried the flag, lead- ing the court dressed in dotted swiss dresses and carrying baskets of flowers. Nancy placed the crown on Anne ' s shining head, and follow- ing the tradition, all knelt to pay homage to our Queen. We remembered how carefully we had chosen the Flag Bearer, Maid of Honor, and May Queen, considering who best char- acterized the ideals of Annie Wright, and we were proud of our choices. May Day has long been a symbol of spring, and the newly-planted rhododendron beds gave evidence of this. It is a time of year when old friendships are renewed and alumnae return, remembering their own May Day. Yes, this experience was richer because of our expecta- tions, and it will always be one of the high- lights of our last year here. MAY DAY, 1943 Left to Right: Betsy Gardner.

Not only have we learned the technicalities that go into publishing such a book, but we have become aware of our school and our class in such a way that our experience will not be forgotten. It was our responsibility to express the personality of our class and our school for future years. We wished to capture the spirit of our Senior year here, distinguishing it from other years and noting its signifi- cance for the future. To those of us leaving the Seminar) ' , the Shield is a prized possession, for it will be a constant reminder of our life here. ADMINISTRATION AND FACULTY You of the Administration, in giving your time to directing the functions of this school, are doing a great deal toward the development and growth of the Seminary. We have seen your appreciation for the standards set down by the founders and nurtured by the students, past and present. Through your devo- tion to this school, our own devotion has deepened. In class and out of class, you and the Faculty have guided us, hearing our problems and helping us to find the answers within ourselves. We are grateful for the close relationship between the faculty and stu- dents in the Seminary, which made it possible for us to know that you, too, enjoyed gay parties and had fun at school festivities.

JUNIOR CLASS You ' ve finally reached the top rung of the ladder at the Seminary. You ' ve worked well together as Juniors and had fun, which seems to be one of the notable characteristics of your class. " Quality Street " and the Prom were fine examples of cooperation and were also outlets for your talents. Now you are ready to be Seniors and you will have many more opportunities to exhibit your ability, for this year was just an introduction to what lies ahead. Back Row.

SOPHOMORE CLASS As you complete your Sophomore year, you have come to recognize the responsibilities that await you. Your efficient work in the library gave us all reason to believe that you will handle well any task that comes your way. The enjoyment you experienced in working on the Hop was evident in the spirit of the dance. You will have even more fun and more work as Juniors, planning for the Prom. We will not forget your many skits to advertise the sale of cards, stationery and wrapping paper, and we will look forward to the same capable handling of Junior sales next year. You are about to reach the last rung with many activities awaiting you — but don ' t forget that those younger than you will be follow- ing your example and depending on you to fulfill your task.

FRESHMAN CLASS You of the Freshman class have just passed the last phase of childhood restrictions and the first of high school. The Freshman-Sophomore Hop gave you an opportunity to share and contribute your new ideas, and you have learned more than you know of poise and cooperation through such things as your Magazine Sale and your Freshman Tea. In T. A. S. C. and Masque you have had the opportunity to become acquainted with respon- sibilities which you will come in contact with next year.

Loyalty and sportsmanship are learned through competitive soccer and volleyball games. This year your eager participation in our last Halloween and in Christmas and Easter Carol Services, as well as ' in Mr. and Mrs. Harney ' s visit, helped to make all these events more memorable, and your years in Upper School will be profitable and happy if these qualities of willingness and eagerness are retained and nour- ished.

LOWER SCHOOL How we love these little children, these living reminders of our own childhood! We watch them as they begin working toward that high broad mountain range called Future. We see them as they learn to read and as they hear God ' s love and mercy explained to them in Chapel. We often wonder what the Christmas and Easter Services would have been like wirhout their timid, sweet voices raised in song. We realize that they are like the soil, providing the necessary materials that we, the Upper School, might grow strong and healthy.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT Every girl in the school is on her honor to live up to the responsibilities and standards of the Seminary. Every girl is proud of the very real and active honor system on which our student government is based. However, governing bodies are needed, not to dictate, but to suggest and supervise. Student Council is the main governing body of the school. The ath- letic schedule is planned by the Seminary Athletic Council. A separate body for the governing of the boarders is neces- sary, not only for the sake of keeping order, but to arrange their social activi- ties. Working together in unity, the mem- bers of student government learn to share responsibility and work for the good of those they represent.

ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION Through our participation in athletics, we have learned good sportsmanship and cooperation. Our l oyalty to our respective teams created a healthy rivalry among us. Blustery days failed to daunt us on the hockey field, and we played off our tournaments of badminton, ping pong, or tennis, even though we were not professionals. In the pool we struggled for endurance and good form and some of us swam in the water ballet. Those interested in creative work joined the modern dance group which performed at Christmas and at the May Day celebration. This May we at- tended our last A. A. Banquet. Some of us received awards, but even those who didn ' t win anything, benefited from the whole- some fun and good comradeship found during our athletic ex- perience.

The realization that they are the girls who were considered worthy of the privilege of serving others comes later when they gain a little perspective. We who are no longer active in T. A. S. C. will never forget the valuable lesson we learned: the opportunity to serve others is the greatest reward this world offers us.
