Mrs. Camden's Christmas Party is the big event of the season at Stratford and the finest example we can give of her great heart and sympathetic under- standing . . . despite her full time job as twin rearer and Traveller adviser, Mrs. Gordon May is always eager and willing to make our problems her problems . . . a companion for jollity, a guide for learn- ing, and unfailingly a friend. She has taught us that "dreams and courage never die," nor shall our admiration for Miss Ida Fitzgerald . . . because her own exquisite touch has added so much beauty to Stratford's personality, we shall remember 'Miss Bessie Van Wageiien always . . . a rollicking charm and infectious friendliness that brings laughter and merriment to whatever group she is in is Miss Eliza- beth Pannill's most distinguishing characteristic. . . Miss Della Truitt is unfailingly dependable. Every sparkling eye and rosy cheek at Stratford is active testimony to her efficiency and skill . . . Miss Rachel Black's keen sense of perfection has given us all more for which to aspire . . . a petite figure breezing in and out among us with the sort 1940 we Honor of good-fellowship that causes us to think of her as "belonging" in a very real sense, Miss Katherine Hoofnagle . . . with a song and a smile, Miss Margaret Vfhittington can chase away any complicated case of "boarding school blues" . . . Miss Margaret Brydon's eager cooperation with us in our feverish search for books and articles will not be soon forgotten . . . Because she has taught us the loveliness and comfort we can find in music, we are forever indebted to Miss Hallie McMillan . . . Miss Ronnie Odom's thoroughness in teaching us Latin has given us almost as firm a Roman background as Julius Caesar himself . . . l10t only has she been a source of understanding as well as a consoling hand to us, but Mrs. Claude Cook's excellent counsel has kept us out of more mischief than We like to remember . . . an air of hearty amiability is Mr. Russell Neely's high sign and it never fails to buoy us . . . Mrs. Wailtei' Parker's professional genius has given us an infinitely greater interest in Stratford dramatics . . . her astute craftsmanship and quiet Congeniality have made Miss Cora Ray's students think of her as a sincere friend . . . for constant and tireless service to Stratford, Miss Helen Shields is well-known . . , Through their cheerful endurance of endless hours of scale frilliug, Mrs. Julia Thompson and Miss Janie Mahan have taught us that patience is indeed a supreme virtue!

Yea, verily, September of the year nineteen hundred and thirty-eight, when we of the class of' forty found that we had a future on our hands and decided to spend a little of it at Stratford. So all dressed up in our Sunday best we descended upon this institution like wolves on the fold, but we were met practically at the front door with a proclamation to the effect that we would have to doff our gay apparel for the more appropriate Cand less competitive-for we still feel sure our less beautiful sisters had their minds on the Sweet Shop all the timelj garb of black stockings, stocking caps and paintless profiles. Were we furious! But we took it on the chin and after a week of cruel persecution began to gain our rightful place in the sun. As chief sun beam we chose Anne Simpson Cwe thought she needed the experiencelj while her able executive assistants were Mary Hunter Edmunds, Betty Lynch, Betty Mason and Peggy Lou Futrelle. Our first conquest came at Christmas when the student body decided that it would be a treat for the public if we elected Peggy Lou as Christmas Card girl. And she must have been good because our angel from Emporia rode right into the May Court a couple of months later on the cloud of glory that arose from this choice. In March we decided it was up to us to show this school what a really good Good English was, so with Mary Hunter as head grammar-vendor we placed another star in our gleaming crown. Spring Planting Day in April was a signal not only for the flowers to burst forth with all their radiance, but for Mary Lily Purdum and Edith Bond to bloom also as our masters of ceremonies. As a grand climax to our term of rookie-ship we won the softball game hands down from the Sophs and due to Dinny Cabell's fall tennis victory and Ann Bowen's capture of the Ping-pong honors we had the privilege of swinging the silver horse-shoe around the neck of our horse-napped Traveller. Here endeth our first year at Stratford. We returned the following September at least ten years wiser and positively rippling with pride at being hailed as BIG SI-10Ts. We vowed we should make our inferiors taste the keen blade of our two edged sword and sure enough we have. October brought the first triumph of the new season when the faculty chose Anne Simpson as October Day Queen. We and nature made a solemn pact that everything would go well for her majesty and her courtiers that day and it is a matter of record that her reign at Fairystone was one of the most successful in a long line of October Days. Not only have we emerged victorious from two athletic contests-hockey and basketball, but Bowen has again brought home a nice slab of bacon wrapped around her Ping-pong paddle. And Stratford's Valentine, Julia Carter, really brought down the house, while Queen Futrelle, monarch of the May Court was lovelier than anything ever conceived by Raphael or Michaelangelo. Spilly's elevation to Captain of the Blue Team was an extremely notable feather in our cap, while Anne's continued success as class president stands as further proof of our good judgment even when we were new at the college game. And so "all's over that is ours, and life burns on" at Stratford, but without the inflammable characters of the outgoing sophomores. But may the future lights rise higher and higher and the flames be forever unquenchable. LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT We, the Sophomore College Class of 1940, being of sound minds--though Weill never be able to prove it-decidedly unsound bodies after the wearying bouts and sleepless nights of Chaucer, Beowulf, and tennis-do hereby sadly and solemnly take cognizance of the fact that we have worn out our welcome at Stratford and must soon be drifting elsewhere. Before folding our intellectual tents and silently moving on across the horizon, however, we find it expedient to dispose of a few of our treasured belongings to the rem- nant of this year's student body. First of all, Barbara would like to leave to her rival faction, Mary Fazel, a big bottle of Sweet Shop guaranteed to cure any case of graduation blues. Spilly Purdum with much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth relinquishes her captainship of the Blues to Anne Watson, while Anne Simpson has decided that she'll leave her textbooks to Leah Taylor. That takes courage. lf you find Beppy Gallaher and Pan Stevens dissolved in a salt mist it's all because of their "kiddies" which they have agreed to put out for adoption. Faith undying, Edie Bond unclasps her little Blue Book from her heart and lays it reverently at Booksie's feet. lf you happen to run across Carolyn Smith in the future and see her smoked glasses, better stop to console her for she's left those divine peepers to Jean Gibbons. The better to see you with, my dear! Mary Hunter's theory of perpetual motion, exemplified by her pendulematic right foot, she leaves to the Biology class to mull over. Peggy Rodnick leaves her statuesque form to Venus in the auditorium. We have often seen them admiring each other and that's what We call real art lovers! Carolyn Perkinson declares she'll have nothing more to do with "Wills," but that's rather doubtful at the present. Little Turner leaves her gorgeous auburn locks to Louise Emerson, who has tried hard enough! Corbetti's poetic ability she has willed to Edna St. Vincent Whatsis. Make a note of that. We'll want to remember when we see the noted one's poems get betterer and bettercr. , Caroline Sanders and Anne Hagerty were nabbed just as they came out of the grocery store and they agreed at once to leave Jevie Evans and Jesse Benton to Lois Williams and Gloria. Peggy Lou's contagious giggle that borders on the very brink of hysteria during the quiet moments, she has given to Ingles. May it live long and prosper! Cassie Parr and Strothers bestow their "bund" spirit upon Sarah Thorpe and Boots Bralley. Pearl Kotlier has a couple of high C's all wrapped up to present to Catherine Oakes, while Frances Walters puts her V. P. I. jacket on the very capable shoulders of Elsie Garvin. We nabbed Julia Carter sidling down the main stairs and she Whispered that she had just willed her blond tresses to Betty B. Maynard in case B. B. ever wants a variety. With an eye peeled for Mrs. Cook, Julia disappeared around the corner and Virginia Ames stopped in passing to reveal that she wished her sincerity to the Chamber of Commerce. Which leaves us with practically nothing except twenty-seven hearts full of grati- tude to our sponsor, Miss Anne Martin, the faculty members who have endured with us, and the school that we shall love and remember always. Signed and sealed this Hrst day of June in the year of our Lord and our Gradua- tion, 1940. HELISNE. SENIOR COLLEGE Bm! All-Arozzml . Maxi Pojmlnr . Brxf Sfilllf'iIf . I Mos! Rl'fI!'USL'lIf0fi1f'l' .

Mr. Garrett lVatkins, instructor, began all of the girls who are taking riding, with a slow trot that since then has had the whole schoul galloping with enthusiasm. The for- mation of at l'Iunt-:man Club caused an expan- sion that necessitated lar,fze1' stables and more horses-and also bigger orders of lini- inent from the "drug." On cue side of the ring there is a brush jump where the girls learned that "ner-king in public" isn't so had when it keeps you from goin,-1 over the horse's head. But that was only at the befzinning and the higher hurdle atop the antphivtheatro hill is no more ditiicult than a curbing for them, these days.

Something new in Emily Post's line has been incorporated into Stratford tradition this year. Seeing an urgent need for a little rehearsal in "How the best behaved people are be' having," the sophomores put their curly heuds together and concocted an occasion which we remember new as GOOD MAN- NERS NVEEK, during which every Strat' fordite was cautioned and cajoled into say- ing' her "Yes thank you's" and her "If you please's," A series ot' Right and XVrong tubleuux was presented and also :in illustrative dra- niutie sketch intended to stimulate our as- piration and make us Hltess Noisy, More Poisc-yi" Drop around some nigrht after the bell ending' Study Hall has rung and see how well it, worked! ETHER D1scOvERs FRANNIE . ETHER YOU DO-OR YOU DON,T A new wrinkle has found its way into the sacred portals of Stratford. For the first time in the sehool's history, we have radio stars among: the student-body. Franny Lane was the pioneer in the field when she ven- tured inajestieally forth across the ether waves sometime during January for ber initial porfor lance as lyricist of the Poet's Corner. EMT Friday evening at 8:30, Franny speaks her little pieces and they do say she-'s quite a hit, about town, too. Other actresses who have performed nt various times are Barbara Adams, Barbara Griftiths. and Jean Tompkins-to say noth- ing of the entire Glee Club.

To Miss Fitz, whom we suspect never had a more interesting English class, we leave tenderest memories of us as "the great psychological experiment" of '36-'40, As ardent admirers of pastel colors, we leave Junior's red flannel shirt to Basie Crumpler.
