For this reason, I am not in a position to stress the meaning of Shorter for you. I do wish to take this opportunity to congratulate you on the successful completion of this important milestone in your life and to express to you deep gratitude for your fine spirit and your splendid contribution to the life of Shorter during your four years on " The Hill.

We must confess that not one of our number thought we ' d make it, but through some quirk of Fate, and in spite of (rather than because of) ourselves, we now rule that domain called Senior Hall. Maybe it would be well to reminisce some. So . . . here goes! We arrived on Shorter Hill and began, as every class does, with that gay (?) arrival, also breaking all Shorter traditions ... it wasn ' t raining! Everything was fine until the day the " old girls " started pouring in (or should we say " screeching " in). Who would have though dignified college women could act so uncouth? But before you could say " Button, Rat " we were screeching with the best of them. We survived rushing . . . and even ratting ' . Ah, ratting . . . ' twas fun, but seems as though our knees will never recover from buttoning! Before too long we had our very own President, Slade, and our beautiful green and black banner with those numerals printed thereon . . . 1949. It seemed sec- onds away . . . THEN! Came the next year we had a new perspective on life and a new president, Deedie. Now we were the ratters and could enjoy ourselves. But soon, oh soon the year ended and .... We were Juniors! Big sisters, too, and we had the best little sister class in all Shorter ' s history. This was the year of our " big idea, " being called the " Forty-Niners " and having those lovable green shirts to wear. Our little sisters proved their worth with the gold-rush party they gave us and life was wonderful ! Then Deedie, Mary, Virginia and Pat were elected to lead us in our long-awaited Senior Year. Well, its here and all too soon we ' ll be alumnae! This year we reached our climax with staying up till all hours, coffee at midnight, many bull-sessions, Madelyn as our president, Comprehensives and countless other things which all went together to form our never-to-be-forgotten Senior Year! It ' s been fun, dear Shorter Hill, and we ' ll never forget you, the times we ' ve had, nor the things we ' ve learned. Please remember your Forty-Niners, for we ' ll " always be High-Minded " and we ' ll be back! KATYJANE KELLY Tennille, Ga. tfiS DIANE PORTER Tacoma, Wash. 9 A MARGARET WILSON Avondale Estates, Ga.

Treasurer Every Shorter student is a member of the Sports Association. It is the aim of this organization to promote not mastery, but an interest in sportsmanship and physical well being. So every afternoon at 4:30 we heard the familiar sound of Jackson ' s whistle and the yell, " Sports Practice ! " To promote especial interest the Sports Association sponsored hikes, Play Day, and of course the old tradition, Health Week. With our new gym, the help of White and Gold, and the entire efforts of every girl at Shorter, we have seen a steady increase of interest that each one is taking in keeping physically fit. 1 n o ft n ft a on )ft C 1 y r s . v; IffllEANDW ita Hirar I Maui Worthdgton Ira Split SaeBlackmai BabsHubert Man Wotthin oa Dora Belli Glim fen McComell lo Ann Merb Cecilia Voight hatitnt Secretory WHITE AND GOLD Babs Hubert . .

SHORTER CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION Mary Ssi Janet Gillos . jEVflAuN The religious activities of Shorter center in the Shorter Christian Association. Though the entire student body is enrolled in the association, its work is directed by a group of students known as " the cabinet. " The presidents of the denominational groups are ex-officio members of the cabinet. S.C.A. sponsors a variety of activities, including the Daily Morning Watch, the Tuesday evening or Mid-Week Worship Service, Sunday Vespers, and Thought for the Day. In an effort to make religion practical, we endeavor to sponsor some form of social service, both at home and abroad. In the fall the Hallowe ' en Carnival proceeds are used to fill Thanksgiving baskets and to give other practical aid to needy families of Rome. The association contributes to the World Student Service Fund, the Foster Parents Plan and to work toward a world Christian community. Our specific purpose is for every Shorter girl to realize a full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God. In this task, we seek to understand Christ and to follow Him.
