COLORS FLOWER Blue and Silver. Sweetheart Rose. OFFICERS FRANCES RADFORD . . . President HELEN O'BRlEN . . Vice-President BETTY MOORE ..... Secretary ln the fall ot l935, one hundred wide- eyed freshmen, bewildered but curious, reticent but eager, joined the ranks ot Girls' High. At our first organized meeting we chose Clara Rountree tor president. Under her capable leadership our clever presenta- tion ot "Major Gowles Amateur Hour" won second place in the annual Stunt Night. Failure to win the big silver cup did not dampen our spirits, but seemed to fill us with more zeal and determina- tion. During this first year the presence ot marked abilities in the scholastic and athletic tields showed that the class ot '39 was to leave behind a remarkable record ot activities and achievements. We returned the following September, proud to be sophomores and imbued MOORE, RADFORD, O'BRlEN with vitality and enthusiasm. Our presi- dent was Frances Radford, whose pep and vigor kept our spirit ever buoyant. Exciting events made the cession. The memory ot marching with Our junior year started with a bang. A second time we elected Radford president. After much labor we were thrilled to be awarded the little cup on Stunt Night for our presentation, "June Yor Sees lt days pass in rapid suc- our "Senior Sisters" in their graduation exercises will always be treasured. and exercise ot talent, Through." The juniors were ably represented on the varsity basketball team and also on the STYLUS Statt. Lady Luck seemed to smile on us that year, tor the U. D. C. essay medal was awarded Betty Moore. ln the spring tour members ot our class who had been out- standing in school lite were elected to memorable picnic and swimming party f9c?9 LORA LEE RUBLE Senior Mascot the National l-lonor Society. ln May the juniors honored the graduating class with a at Avondale, which incidentally we enjoyed a lot ourselves. Here we pause, for it is with genuine significance that we review our senior year. Last tall we became "dignified" seniors, being guided tor the third consecutive term by Frances Radford. Without the splendid co-operation ot each member ot the class we would have been unable to gain highest honors at Stunt Night and thus at last to have the name ot our class engraved on the large cup. Soon Kid Day came around, and as children tor a day we indulged in lollipops and gum, and played with balloons, Teddy bears, and other childish toys. This last year was not without achievements in broader fields, too, for Jane Martin wrote and presented the WATL Scholarship Play. In Janu- ary the National Honor Society gained tour new seniors. Our interests in sports and outside activities continued. The last months ot school passed swiftly, culminating with the Junior-Senior Party, Class Night, Baccalaureate Day, and tinally graduation night. We could have had no finer or more meaningtul experience than our last year at Girls' High. Now we reluctantly turn a retrospective eye on tour years past, and hope the future will be as happy and as inspiring. May the ties ot friendship never break, and the spirit of union tor a greater Girls' High live on and on. -BETTY MOORE. 13 ? '??-7 'X Tl-IE SENIORS DELAVINA AYERS PEARL BARROW HELEN BENDER DELAVINA AYERS endears herself to us all by her warm, genial manner. As a remembrance, she passes on her trusty typewriter to Mildred l-ludgins and Lucy Milner. A glance into the future reveals Delavina busily typing away at some lucky employer's desk. . . . PEARL BARROW enlivens a rather quiet nature with a dash of humor. After having constantly used them in Saturday afternoon golf lessons, Pearl leaves her battered golf balls to Hilda Pitts. I949 finds Pearl the professional golf champion of Georgia, with a trophy room full of awards .... HELEN BENDER has a magnetic friendliness which is felt the first time she smiles. That engaging twinkle in her eye she bequeaths to Mildred Robertson. Inspired by the appropriateness of her name, she is planning to patent the Bender Exerciser ....

She en- trusts her favorite seat at the DeKalb Theater to Frances Griswell, because Roberta has gone on to higher worlds as a famous actress in the movies. . . .

She presents her old French book to La Rose Manderson, with the promise of a brand new one when Elaine completes her version ot the language in a French text book. . . .

When Doris Jeanne conducts her all-girl orchestra, she will inevitably be titled, "Sweetheart ot Swing." 35 LYNETTE FORRESTER is another ot our rhythm-minded classmates. She yields her cherished clarinet to June Lanier and will become one ot the participants in Sammy Saye's Saturday Swing Session ..., BEVERLY FRANKS, a discriminat- ing lover ot books, is one ot our outstanding classmates. She bequeaths a set ot classics to Bert Cason. Some day a statue ot Beverly will be constructed tor PATRICIA GLACCUM DORIS JEANNE GOLDEN the Literary Corner in the Hall ot Fame. . . . LAURA GILBERT is very co-opera- 16 RENA GRIZZELL is as cheerful as the day is long. She leaves her last name, which everybody mispronounces and misspells, with her sister, Ida, who will have to endure the same difficulty next year. Rena plans a speaking tour giving a series of illustrated lectures on the beauty of "Augusta, the Garden City of the South." . . . LAURISTON HARDIN by her inter- esting personality has attracted friends everywhere. She bestows her cute Virginia accent and unique handwrit- ing on Janet Bushfield. If you ever need a capable physician, call on Dr. Hardin, because Lauriston's ambition will have been realized. . . . CAROL HARDING is versatile, being talented in art and music.

She presents her numerous head scarfs to Evelyn Elling- ton. Damp weather no longer will bother her when she has become a famous Hollywood hair-dresser ....

After she has married a brilliant surgeon, the pride of Harvard, Barbara will be prominent in Boston society .... HELEN SAMMS HEGWOOD is a lover of sports.

Under the leadership of Miss Burt, a worth-while point system has been devised. Seven- point numerals are awarded 'for a certain amount of participation in hiking, baseball, field day, swimming, and bowling: fourteen-point numerals are awarded in basketball and tennis. A combination of three seven-point numerals or one seven- point and one fourteen-point numeral wins a letter. Mem bers of the basketball varsity and the two finalists in the tennis tournament always receive letters. Each additional twenty-one points is rewarded with a star. -1 1 X .

Good basketball technique, team co-operation, and 'fine sportsmanship have been stressed. Besides the games played with other schools an inter-room tournament has given many girls a chance to dis- play their interest. Miss Mary Burt assisted with this, as well as with the grammar school tournament, which was held under the sponsorship ot the Athletic Council. LEFT First row: ABOVE HONIKER WOMACK First WW: B.

To Decatur Girls' High, bowling made a successtul debut this year. Since there was a growing demand tor this new activity to be included in the athletic program, special rates were secured tor the girls. In several weeks hearty enthusiasm proved this sport to be a complete success. A bowling team ot six girls was selected from the group ot more than a hundred players. Hiking is a sport in which many girls have entered who do not take part in other sports. In this, one needs neither skill nor practice. Every Wednesday Miss Mary Burt and betweenlthirty and seventy girls gather tor a walk. The two most exciting treks are the longer ones-the first to Emory and the second to the Fox theater. All girls who participate in at least ten out ot twelve three-mile and the two tive-mile hikes win a seven-point numeral. 'wif fn Four tired feet!

As the spring term begins, our minds turn to the out-of-doors and to athletics. One ot the biggest events ot the second semester is Field Day. After three weeks ot hard practice, each home-room selects contestants tor the events, such as bean bag throw, standing and running broad jump, baseball and basketball throw, and running. A time display ot sportsmanship and athletic ability is accompanied by much enthusiasm from the spectators. Baseball is one ot our spring sports, beginning early in April and holding our attention tor about six weeks. Interest centers around the intra-mural tournament. When this has been played, the winning room is ,declared the champion. From the best players in all rooms are chosen class teams and a school team. ,liestff 1 - 7.87736 .

As early as October a tournament is arranged and contestants are seeded. The games are played on Agnes Scott courts. The girls gain necessary prac- tice by playing three hours a week tor ten weeks.

In time each girl will occupy in lite a niche best suited to her capabilities. The I939 STYLUS depicts each ot these girls with ,,2if3rv her own interests and aptitudes as well as the com- bined interests and activities ot the group, a com- posite scene vibrant with the spirit ot Girls' l-ligh.

Be- cause we realize our individual needs, we shall state below our separate resolutions, having first agreed to the general one that we shall give no study-halls, lectures, or home-work on any days-except Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and if possible, Saturday. I, Miss Smith, have decided after serious reflection to stop calling our girls "young Iadies" and to make them feel more at home by calling them something more friendly, as "youngsters." I, Miss Margaret Eakes, because, as my French class knows, all my infrequent, brilliant ideas come in the bath-tub, resolve to take baths oftener than just on Saturday nights. I, Miss Ida Story, resolve with a vengeance to do something terrible to all those people that think I look like Shirley Temple. I, Miss Letty tKnock-'em-outj Pope, do hereby re- solve to make an honest effort to bang-up a lot less people with my beautiful new car than I have suc- ceeded in doing in basketball practice. I, Miss Lizzie Lasseter, have decided to establish a permanent typing class after school and then maybe all my make-up girls and boys can get made up, maybel I, Miss Caroline Daniel, have made plans to make a thorough study of the Freshman Mind, in a last effort to discover where in the world they get those impossible questions. l, Mrs. Grace Kehr, realizing my bad influence on my classes, have decided to make a terrible sacrifice and give up my precious chewing gum, and to make an honest attempt at covering up my cavernous yawns.

Being especially conscientious this year, I have also decided to try to get in a little English in between my jokes. I, Mrs. Nellie Key Crook Smith, resolve to stop being such a sweet, friendly, good little thing, so's I can find something to make a resolution about next year. I, Mrs. Ruby Brown, have decided after much de- liberation to try to get in a little spare time from all my work and devote it to music. I, poor, tired, hoarse Miss Adna Bostwick, resolve to take out a patent on my newly-invented Mouth Muffler and Foot Shuffler combined to get the children out of the auditorium and into the lunch "as quickly and quietly as possible." I, Miss Helen Copelan, am determined to make that hard-hearted Miss Eakes let rrie sing in assembly my beautiful song I wrote. I, Mrs. Clive Folger, having been ridiculed so long by my Iriends and my husband for my horrible man- ners and the unappetizing stuff I cook for dinner, have decided to get a book on etiquette, and to start taking cooking lessons. I, Mrs. Madge Lee, realize now that my gentle nature and sweet disposition are spoiling all my classes, and in I939, I plan to overcome this by fuss- ing at them occasionally for something. l, Miss Annie Doster, because of my knowledge of politics gained from my civics classes, have decided to give up teaching and run for the first woman presi- dent by the time this year's Freshman class is old enough to vote. I, last but by no means least, Miss Mary Burt, realizing that nobody ever hears me say anything, intend to ask Miss Eakes to please let me make some announcements once in a while. I realize that I ought to make some sort of resolution about all my men. friends, but a gal ain't young but once. JANE MARTIN, '39.
