reticent but eager, joined the ranks ot
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

were ably represented on the varsity basketball team and also on the STYLUS Statt. Lady Luck seemed to smile on us that

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
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.

The Junior Class has proved itselt
a valuable part ot Girls' High by its
enthusiastic participation in school
activities. Our ceaseless etlorts to
produce a winning stunt were finally
rewarded this year when we received
tor our clever production the smaller
cup tor second place. Our other
honors are numerous. Athletics claim
a major part in our interests. We
contributed several squad members,
and more than halt the players on the
FRENCH, HOWARD, MCGUIRE
varsity basketball team. Three members ot the Athletic Council are juniors: Betty Bond, Clyde Boswell and
Betty Pope Scott, and the Annual Statt boasts two outstanding classmates, Bevelyn Howard and Martha
Muse. For the benefit ot the annual the juniors proved their enthusiasm by providing a very exciting Pro
tessor Quiz program which brought a great deal ot enjoyment to the student body. These achievements are
testimonials ot the spirit ot the Class ot l94O.

Our second year in high school Iinds us less timid than
when we came from grammar school as awe-struck, awk-
ward treshmen. Now we more definitely teel ourselves
to be an integral part ot that body of varied personali-
ties called Girls' High, and as such have entered more
heartily into its many activities. The sophomores pre-
sented a black-face minstrel as its contribution to the
annual Stunt Night, and Mr. Julian Boehm, amateur magi-
cian, in a program for the benefit of the STYLUS. We
have had our full share in the school athletic program,
too. The entire class basked in reflected glory when
Harriet Richardson was chosen most beautiful in the
Who's Who contest, and again experienced a thrill when
invited by the seniors to participate in graduation exer
cises. Next year, as juniors, we expect to leave an even
deeper impress on school life and we are looking to the
future with genuine anticipation.

High. Our stunt exhibited our zeal and class spirit and
had an enthusiastic reception. The constantly active health
class has accomplished much in improving posture and
dental care among Girls' High students, through the Polly
Posture contest and the exciting dental campaign. We
set a new record by our donation to the annual from our
clever cake-walk. We have very promising material in the
athletic tield, and contributed Frances Lovingood to the
basketball varsity. Although a little shy at first, we have
sought to be congenial and co-operative. We are look-

This year, as has been the custom since the first year of Girls' High, the student body elected seven girls to supervise
and plan the athletic program. 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.

veloped among a large number of our girls. 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

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.

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
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

Although swimming is considered a summer activity, our girls have made it an interesting indoor sport
ot the winter. The Y. W. C. A. has offered special rates. Once a week almost twenty-five girls enjoy a
swim there. A swimming meet has been planned for early May.
The interest in tennis is widespread throughout the school. 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. By early spring all matches are complete, a champion
resulting. She and the last three players eliminated constitute the tennis team.

The students ot Decatur Girls' l-ligh have distinct
and varied personalities.
l-lere we find a laughing girl whose robust health,
good posture, and participation in sports indicate
that her interests are athletic: a girl whose poise and
well-groomed beauty make her outstanding among
her fellows: the scholarly girl with the alert mind and
love ot books which bespealc intellectuality: and a
myriad other types. 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.

definite growth. The membership, which has almost doubled and now
numbers forty, includes only those girls who are taking their second
year of Home Economics. The club derived much pleasure in assisting
some of Decatur's philanthropic organizations at various times during
the year. Among the programs enjoyed monthly, demonstrations, lec-
tures, and discussions have been featured. In addition to the social
hour concluding each meeting, the group has tried to keep in mind
its one aim-to became more worthy home members.

sides of a well-balanced lite: spiritual, mental, and physical. Part of

ment. Outside speakers have presented to the club a number of interest-
ing and educational subjects. During the Christmas season each member

The Girl Scouts have been a very busy group this year. Activities
have varied according to the seasons. ln the tall, the group enjoyed a
taste ot out-door lite by cooking their own meals while on a long
hilce. During the Christmas season, the scouts sent stutfed toys and
plates ot coolcies to the pre-school children at the Methodist Children's
Home. In the spring the girls had an instructive and entertaining visit
to the Georgia Milk Producers' Corporation, where they learned how
mill: is protected betore bottling. Mrs. W. S. Bush has found very
interesting things tor the troop to do. Though a new and small group,

Faculty New Year's Resolutions
We, that noble band of sufferers who struggle so
hard to be teachers at Decatur Girls' High, because
we realize what perfectly horrible creatures we've been
during I938, do hereby resolve to do something about
our many faults and make an honest effort toward
self-improvement in our New Year's Resolutions. 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,
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,
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
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.

I, Miss Eleanor Moncrief, am going to hold a fifteen
minute class every Wednesday after school to coach
people in learning how to pronounce the Indian name
of the Florida town I came from. 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.

For many years, Agnes Scott served instead of a public school
system in educating the girls of Decatur, and it still feels a
peculiar interest in the graduates of Decatur Girls' High School.
These have done well in their studies and in campus activities
and are always welcome. The college would like to make it
possible for every well prepared young woman who finishes the
High School to have a college education.
