The fall of nineteen thirty-nine had come!
With no brass band to meet us, but with music in our hearts, we, the Class of '41, stormed the
gates of Stratford. Frances Lane was chosen as conductor, and she has wielded the baton ably.
Although many menial tasks were performed during Rat Week, it may be admitted that all dis-
cipline was given and taken in good spirit. Our complexions were much improved, it's true, by the
lack of make-up, and our hair grew curly as a result of being worn in pigtails for a week. We emerged
from this, our first audition, ready to conquer the world.
With the coming of snow and the jingle of Christmas bells, Gloria Sullivan was elected Strat-
ford's Christmas-Card Girl for 1939. And to the accompaniment of choral music, our Madonna of
The Nativity, jean Tompkins, stirred the hearts of all.
Refreshed by a welcome Christmas vacation, and with exams safely over, we proceeded to show
our ability both inharmony and as soloists.
With a powerful serve, which could not be withstood by even the mightiest Senior, Bette O'Neill
won laurels as tennis champion. Not content with this, however, we sent Libby Grant to Winchester
to represent Stratford as Apple Blossom Princess, while here at the school Mary Evelyn Jefferson
made a big success of Spring Planting Day.
After a grand finale of final exams, the curtain fell on our first year at Stratford, and an inter-
mission of summer vacation was called.
Sk Pk if ,F fl'
Harvests were ready to gather in when we returned to Stratford, high and mighty Seniors to
greet our year.
Midst fall leaves and under an autumn sun, our Class President, Frannie Lane, reigned graciously
as October Day Queen.
Sponsored by the Senior College Class, Good-Manners Week came and went with great success,
and later in the year we produced a Good-English Week not to be equalled in fun or in achievement.
To Jean Gibbons goes the credit for bringing the Whites through as successful a Senior year as
had been the Freshman year under Libby Grant.
Again from among our group was chosen the girl to whom the honor of portraying the Madonna
was given. Christmas in 1940 found Lois Williams bending over the manger breathing a prayer for
the Holy Infant.
With the spring came the glorious flowering of fruit trees, and Betsy Davis went to Winchester
as our Apple Blossom Princess. At home, in regal splendor, Elizabeth Grant, reigned as May Queen.
And so, with a clash of cymbals, we graduated into the world-a liner group-instilled with love

" Wh.ile I nodded, nearly napping, 5-uddenly than
came a tapping,
A5 of .romeone gently rapping, rapping at my
The familiar words startled me. WVorn and weary with studying Chaucer, I had picked up the little
book of poems from a neighboring table and it had opened to these melancholy lines.
And at the same time it seemed that I could hear a faint, but insistent, tapping at the library
Filled with a dread I could not name, I arose in my chair, half expecting to see an ebony Raven take
form from the velvety blackness beyond the open window. But instead a Hoot-Owl stepped across thc
sill and flew to the top of a bookcase, perching under the portrait of Christine Burns.
"Who-who are you?" I asked, trembling.
With his wise, blinking eyes, the bird looked down at me, and then he spoke:
"I am the Past, the Present, and the Future. 1've come to tell you what a mistake you are making.
There you sit, hunched over those books as though there were nothing in the world more important.
You are so concerned with things long dead that you take no thought of the living people about you."
He spoke so seriously and yet looked so ridiculous that I laughed aloud.
"Yes, laugh if you will," he said. "But tell me: How much do you know of the sorrows and joys,
the hopes and dreams of your classmates here at school? When June comes, you will all separate and go
different ways. It will be too late then to learn to understand them and, because of this understanding,
to love them.',
"Well, how much do you know about themfi' I asked defiantly, disturbed by his grave challenge.
"I know everything," he answered, "and even more. I can tell you more about those classmates of
yours than they know themselves. To them the future is foggy and mysterious, but I can sec clearly
five, even ten years from now."
Intrigued by his words, I eagerly implored him to tell me of our class and what we would all be
doing in ten years. There was a loud roar of thunder, and a bolt of lightening must have struck a power
line somewhere, for the library was plunged in sudden darkness. Only the eyes of the Hoot-Owl shone in
the darkness, and his feathers glowed luminously as he started speaking in a low sing-song voice:
"Fame lies ahead for some, and I see much happiness. The graduates of this year go out into the
world to fulfill their highest dreams and greatest expectations.
"Jean Tompkins, who declares she leaves her histrionic ability to Bucky Harris, manages to beg,
borrow, or steal some more, for she becomes the leading actress on Broadway and thrills audiences of
"Frances Lane, whose versatility and powers of leadership she bestows upon graduation to Beth
Lamonby, becomes the first woman president of the United States and remains in otlice for four terms.
She is said to be the greatest orator ever to live in the White House. I"rannie's chief aide is Martha
Laubenstein, who gave up a very alluring private life to do her duty for her country."
"Tell me, Mr. Hoot-Owl, what becomes of Bee Williams?" I interrupted to ask. "She already
seems to have her future quite definitely planned for herself."
"Yes," came a twinkling reply, "and so do some of the others in thc class, though not everybody
knows it. Elizabeth Grant, for example, leaves her May Queen dress to the member of the Freshman
class whom it fits best, but she does like the idea of a long, white train.
"Helen Hoffman, though she doesn't know it yet, is due for a very short, but ardent, courtship this
summer to be climaxed by an elopement before she can even get her breath. The whole thing will be
quite a surprise to several people, I imagine.
"Then there's Jean Gibbons, who leaves the Whites to the Hall Seniors and the Hall Sophomorcs.
After ten years of research work, she is just completing a book on philosophy. The live-volume master-
piece, To Be or Not To Be, is expected to revolutionize the whole realm of philosophical knowledge.
"Tall, stately Burnett Culverhouse, who bcqueaths her flair for making faces to jean Loughead so
that she can carry on the job of haunting Stratford, becomes the wife of the Duke of Frankenstein,"
continued the Hoot-Owl, as he gravely shined his spectacles on the soft feathers under his wings.
"Speaking of Dukes," I interrupted again, "tell me how Charlotte Worsham fares as a doctoris

Senior Jia!! History
I am the Class of '41, and although I was a little under nourished when I was born four years ago,
I at least had Nellie Lea, a permanent asset. Nellie began to see to it that I had financial backing,
and she has done so faithfully during these four years.
'Things really began to brighten up when Marjorie Anderson came to the rescue. IVIargie took
me in hand, and between the two of them-Nellie and Margie I had a substantial nucleus for future
development. Maybe with that as a starter, I might yet burst into my rightful heritage.
At the age of three, I began to take on more shape and form when "Barbie" Adams, "-Ieanniev
Clark, Carolyn Lambeth, "Parlay" Parker and "Blazie" Hauton became a part of me.
"Barbie" plunged headlong into things and came up a winner. She has been my leader for the
past two years, and a very active and inspirational one at that. Njeannief' was another championg
she walked right off with top honors in the badminton tournament that year. "Blazie" was given
t.he cup at the Horse Show, and I entertained my older sister at a picnic. Thus, you have a minute
picture of the things I accomplished when I was three.
I struggled through that adolescent period and stood by watching my older sister, Class of 41,
set out on her own in the world, wondering how I would be able to step into her shoes CI never dreamed
they would be such a tight Htl and keep things going at home. I was wary of the situation confront-
ing me, but now I have definite proof of the old adage, K'It's always darkest before the dawn", for
dawn burst upon me like radiant sunlight the following September. I became complete, with the addi-
tion of jane Austin, "Buddy" Fenichel, "Rusty" Kretschmar, Winifred Haywood, Joan Lagarde,
'fKathie" Littlejohn, "Scotty" Spear, Doris Mayberry, Anne Milteer, Frances Richardson, "School-
helcl," "Tully" and "Stowell."
I can't resist calling to your attention a few of the honors which they brought me.
First, there was jane, who won the tennis tournament and then turned around and won the bad-
minton tournament. Not only that, but three-parts of me are in the May Court: jane, joan and
"Blazie," who is Maid of Honor. And for Mirth, there is "Tully," who was Court Jester at Twelfth
Night. As my last project before leaving, I undertook the Spring Planting Day program.
There is much more which is worthy of praise, but Timz AlC17'CILt'.l' On, and I must not tarry too
long. Now I find myself at the door, ready to say good-bye to those I leave behind, and fully equipped
to step out and take my place in the world. I have definite ideas as to what each part of me wants
to do and a few last treasures to leave to those who must some day follow me through this door.

The crystal floods, and as it clears, Anne Milteer stands at the altar, a blushing bride, her one-and-
only by her side.
As she fades from view, Mary Parker, with brush and palette in hand, appears, putting the hnal
touches on her masterpiece.
After this, the pictures come in rapid succession.
There is Barbara Adams in a massive palace, her childhood dreams realized. She is followed by her
many attendants as she paces the silver floor, a chariot of glittering gold awaits her at the door.
Jeannie Clark and Joan Lagarde fthey have both added to their names, but it's a sccretj are eating
ice cream cones while they tear along the road at White Sulphur Springs on their way to meet their
surgeon husbands for a game of golf.
Jane Austin-in spite of the fact that she has just played the most astounding match of the tennis
world, even surpassing the record of her predecessor, Alice Marble, is modestly accepting "The NVQ-
man's Singles Cup" at Forest Hills, New York.
Helen Tully, John Power's star model, is slithering in and out of Bergdolf Goodman's and Jay
Thorpe's more expensive gowns and passing them off on New York's less voluputuous niatrons.
Pixie-like "BuddyH Fenichel leaves the crowds at the Madison Square Garden Horse Show simply
limp as she lifts the stallion "Chatham Hall" over the bars.
As Nfrs. Cook has retired to the home of her son and daughter-in-law, Mzirgie Anderson, her suc-
cessor, is left guarding the portals of Stratford. CSl1ZlClCS of Franklinis, Margie, who'd have thought itlj

Senior Hal! WY!
I have given you my History and my Prophecy, and now there remains but one last thing for me to
do before I go: Leave you the "Consequences" to my "Truth.'l

Jean lVIcDaniel leaves to all future students of Latin her love for the subject.
Helen Tully leaves her shy, reserved nature to Marion Meloney.

Mr. Hoot-Owl shook his head sadly. Hlim afraid she isn't much help in that capacity. One look at
her and all her husband's patients get well immediately. Too bad-she's ruined a line practice.
"Isabel Emerson, who leaves all her various black and white keys to Holly Lock-wood upon gradua-
tion, becomes one of the greatest musicians of 195 I. Virginia McLean cuts short her startling rise to
musical fame to marry a handsome foreigner and spend her life contentedly icing birthday cakes.
"Another member of your class who attains national prominence is Bette O'Neill. She is awarded
a sterling silver horse for the Best Woman Athlete of I951."
"There's no need to ask you what becomes of Barbara Shields, is there? That's all quite definite
"Yes, you're right," agreed the blinking Hoot-Owl, "but there's a surprise element that creeps in
somewhere. It'll be a pleasant shock to several of her friends, I believe.
"Betty Barber Maynard, who leaves her black hair to Helen Tully, is destined to become the
advertising Manager of the New York Times. And speaking of hair, Bernice Heard presents her long,
lovely, luscious locks to the shortest-haired girl in school. She feels that in her new position as Consult-
ing Lexicographer of the World a few yards of hair is just a nuisance.
"Barbara Armentrout, better known as the queen of socks, leaves her knitting needles to Madeline
Schloss in order to take up a profession where her popularity and friendliness receive full recognition.
Her official title is Head Hostess of the United States Navy."
"You know, Mr. Hoot-Owl, I've always felt that Josie Lewis would really do something important.
What about her?"
'flosieis job actually is the most important in the world," replied the Hoot-Owl when the reverbera-
tions from a particularly loud clap of thunder had ceased echoing. "She conducts a school for children
and is famous all over the world as a true exponent of Chaucer's theory: And gladly learn and gladly
teach. i' -.
"Mildred Rogers, wh, esgher subdued alto to Barbara Adams, is the Hrst graduate of your
class to receive her Master's e from Columbia University. Her thesis was entitled The Importance
of Chaucer in the Modern World. Also at Columbia is Katherine Williams, worldafamous masseuse, who
takes the kinks out of tired students nerves.
"Gloria Sullivan, who leaves her artistic ability to Flossie Tucker to help her with her biology
drawings, is coming out in a whirl of debutante parties in Cleveland. CShe waited until she got to be
a big girl-lj
"And speaking of Cleveland, Agnes Swain and Ned are living contentedly in a little bungalow in a
suberb of that city."
In the silence that followed these words, I realized that the storm was about over, for the moon
struggled through the clouds and a pale ray of light glistened on the wet window sill. The Hoot-Owl
ruffled his feathers as though preparing to fly away.
"There are still some more," I reminded him. .
"Yes, I'm not forgetting. Betsy Davis, who leaves her blushing beauty to all the little apple
blossoms, reaches new heights as Queen of the Carburetors at the big IQSI automobile show, featuring
the latest car models from all over the world.
"And Mary Evelyn Shelton, because of her promptness and dependability, becomes the time-
keeper for the Elgin,Watch Company. Before they leave the factory, all the watches are set and reg-
ulated by her.
"The Gretna songbird, Kathryn Colbert, bequeathes her bass-baritone to Gertie jenny Lind
jones after her marriage to Marko Maloff, the world's greatest tenor. She feels that one singer to a
family is enough-so all her children take dancing.
'fOf course you know of Kit Benson's success as an army ofhccr's wife. But she is also gaining in-
ternational fame for her great epic poem, The Song of Roland.
"Alice Fulton leaves her serenity and poise to all the College Seniors of next year. They'll need it,
and she won't-at least, she'll have to keep only enough to carry her through her big church wedding.
"Because of their ability to keep up with anything new, Polly Rhyne and Elsie Garvin become the
very modern hostesses on the new, streamlined submarine, The Firh.
"And that," said the Hoot-Owl, Hying down from his perch, "takes care of all who really get
"But, wait!" I cried. "You haven't said anything about me yet. Will I ever-3"
Quoth the Hoot-Owl, "Nevermore."

True to her boast, Stratford has this year indeed "encouraged participation in those extra-curric-
ular activities which are a vital part of student life."
The Student Council has strived this school year to promote a higher sense of honor, to inspire a
greater loyalty to Stratford, to encourage a deep fellowship between students, and to develop an efli-
cient student organization. It has drawn up a new Constitution to further this aim, and it has brought
about the installation of an effective honor system in Stratford. Each student has signed an honor
pledge, strengthening the individual challenge to herself. It is hoped for future years that there may be
a keen realization felt within each student ofthe significance of a wholesome, active student government
and a sincere desire to hold to it with unfailing devotion as the moldcr of great character.
In keeping with its high purpose and ideals, the members of the Blazer Club have given themselves
wholeheartedly to unselfish service. Ostensibly an Honor Athletic organization dedicated to maintaining
interest in all forms of sports and upholding a line spirit of rivalry in all athletic contests, the Club has
extended its aims to include greater loyalty to Stratford and to humanity.
The Poetry Society has met on Sunday afternoons throughout the year in order to stimulate an
interest in and an enjoyment of poetry. The club has succeeded in bringing together those who read and
write poetry and in developing in them a finer appreciation and understanding.
The purpose of the International Relations Club has been to study and maintain an interest among
its members in the importance of world events. Current Events Week, sponsored by the club, has sought
to promote in the entire student body an understanding of the significance of each day's happenings.
Stratford Players, the dramatic club of the college, has successfully presented two major productions
this year-one in the fall and one in the spring. In addition to these, various shorter skits and scenes
have been given from time to time by the members. Lectures and discussions on dramatic teclmique,
make-up, pantomime, and stage directions have been held to develop in the students a greater love
and knowledge of dramatic art.
The purpose of Entre Nour, the French Club, has been to afford students a greater opportunity for
practice in French conversation.
To join all daughters and granddaughters of alumnze of Stratford, a Daughters Club was organized
this year. The club's aim is to be the connecting link between the alumnm association and the student
Another new club organized this year is the Local Students Club for the purpose of uniting and
bringing together as a group the Danville girls who attend Stratford.
The Glee Club has not only given numerous public recitals, but it has also continued to lead the
singing at Sunday Vespers and to inspire in all the students an appreciation ofthe value of group music.
These organizations, varying in purpose and in operation, make possible experiences which appeal
to every girl and cover the entire range of school life.

Stratfordls doors open wide to her students for another year-
They barely had time to say hello to their roommates before the fall tennis tournament was in full
swing with many new aspirants for the single's title. And sure enough in the hnals, Bette O'Neill, our
1939 champion, was defeated by Jane Austin, a new tennis lassie from Hartford, Connecticut.
Before we completed the tennis tournament, we began our practice for field hockey, with sixty-six
girls out for positions on the class teams and the Blue and WVhite varsity teams. The night before the
game, the lfVhites buried the Blue spirit, while the blues burned the White spirit, in a campus bonfire.
The game was exciting and Well played, with the Blues finally coming out with a small margin to win.
Then indoors to play badminton, and our three courts stayed occupied until March 15, when we had
an excellent hnals match between Jean Gibbons and jane Austin. Jane came through with a two-out-oil
three game win over Gib to add to her racquet victories. The ping-pong champion is still to be known,
but the winner will deserve her title, for the players are many and skilled.
Now with spring weather here, the campus becomes a playground, with the tennis courts and prac-
tice board seeing much action. The softball diamond and archery range are alive again with practices
for the spring games and tournaments.
Our new canoes will add greatly to our spring sport calendar, for our canoe meet and races are sched-
uled for May.
VVith this successful year to spur us on, we shall begin next year with enthusiasm and new high hopes.
