Do you remember? . . . September 15, IQ4I . . . that day when we first entered the doors of Stratford College, just an excited, slightly bewildered group of girls who were to become the College freshman class. . . . the rush and confusion of those Erst few days . . . unpacking, buying curtains, meeting new people, getting classified, making plans, dreaming dreams. . . . that inevitable Rat week when we laid aside all those new clothes we had so carefully bought to 'Ago away to collegey' and donned old print dresses Qbackwardsl, black stockings, tennis shoes, and wore our hair in those dread- ful pigtails to be slaves to the old girls' com- mands for a week. . . . and that night of Rat Court when we all quaked in our boots as we sang, danced, and put on stunts in the chapel. . . . the pride we felt as we had our first real class meeting and felt that we were really a part of Stratford and elected Jane Austin, Bette Ebbert, Evelyn Rose, and Mary Beth Ames as our leaders for the year. . . .October Day at Fairystone Park with Jane Austin representing our class with her beauty and charm in the queen's court. . . . the hockey games that fall with the freshman class carrying away victories from the College sophomores and Hall teams, and the big climax at the Blue-White game with Patty Peace, captain of the VVhites, leading her team to victory over the Blues. . . . the Christmas dance when we were so proud to have Bette Ebbert and -lane Austin representing our class in the leadout. . . . the merriment of Twelfth Night with June Nicholas as king of the revelry and Barbara Adams as court jester. ...Book Week in March with our class "doing itself proud" in the way in which it put this event across. . . . those afternoons on the basket-ball court when the freshmen class again proved its athletic ability by winning the class tournament. . . . the spring tennis tournament when two freshmen, ,lane Austin and Betty Leyden, battled in the finals for the champion's title which, as it turned out, went to Austin. . . . the fun and work of planning the Fresh- man-Sophomore breakfast, and the thrill we all had when it was such a success with Patty Peace as toastmistress Mother Goose. the Athletic Luncheon when our Jane Austin was awarded the finest athlete cup. . . . the thrill supreme when the IRIS came out and we found that Jane Austin had been elected "Girl of the Yearf' 4193 .. . September, 1942, with all the happy reunions, all the "Guess what happened when I was at so-and-so . . ." 's. the fun of meeting the new girls and making them feel at home. , . . . those first class meetings as sophomores when we began to make plans for the year under the leadership of Mary Beth Ames, lyfary Cook Marrett, Sally Champlin, and Frances Tull. . . . Good hffanners Vifeek with the College sophomores putting on programs that were entertaining and beneficial to all. . . . the beautiful picture that June Nicholas made in her crown of autumn leaves, reigning as October Day queen. . . . those informal class parties over in the art studio around an open fire and the formal class tea in the College drawing rooms. . . . the music and laughter and soft lights that made the year's formal dances never-to-be forgotten occasions under the direction of a dance committee composed of three sopho- mores: Mary Kretschmar, Sherry Daly, and lvlary Cook Marrett. . . . the deep Christmas joy we experienced by entertaining the underprivileged children, of Danville, at the annual Christmas party with Patty Peace as chairman for the occasion, and the lighter side of the Christmas dance with Mary Beth Ames, Emma Orr, Patty Peace, Dot Jane glimmerson, and Anne Gambrell McCarty in the queen's court. . . . Good English Week under the sponsor- ship of the Sophomore class. . . . the election of Libby High as treasurer to fill the vacancy left by Frances Tull. . . . the way Dot Jane Jimmerson looked like a real old-fashioned valentine as queen of the Sweetheart Ball with three other sopho- mores: Mary Beth Ames, Mary Kretschmar, and Emma Orr, in her court. . . . all the fun we had at the"Iris" Carnival, the jitterbug contest we sponsored, and the thrill we had when Mary Beth Ames was an- nounced as maid-of-honor in the carnival queenis court. Do you remember? And before it is all over, how many more things will we have tucked away in our hearts to remember . . . our second lvfay Day. . .all the final luncheons and breakfasts . . . the thrill of choosing Class Day dresses and all the excitement of Class Day, the flowers, the salutatory, the valedic- tory, and the tears ...those final heart-to- heart talks in our dormitory rooms with remi- niscences of the past and plans for the future. . . academic robes, "Loyalty," graduation, di- plomas, "Alma lVIater,, and . . . farewells . . . THE llll Senior Kallege Will and Przfphccy VVhile studying laboriously on "Beowulf" in the library, a College sophomore of the Class of 1963 found in the binding of an ancient Beowulf textbook a worn manuscript, upon which was the VVill and Prophecy of the Senior College Class of 1943. Unrolling the musty scroll, the inquisitive sophomore gazed upon: "We the Class of 343 place our future in the hands of our three illustrious prophets, who have set down upon this scroll our VVill and Prophecy. Pattie Peace leaves her originality to Gloria Gersh, and is seen going back to the "frozen north" across the "Mase"-on Dixon line. Irma Niittelman surrenders her room to "Oscar" fthe rodentj, and goes into a large compaign of advertising mouse traps. Jane McPhayden bequeaths her easel to "Chosh,' Waldo, and is later found in the White House restyling Mrs. Roosevelt's clothes. Edith Sinott leaves her complacency to "Tish" Andrews, and becomes Brooklyn's first Ambassador to Spain. Helen Boggs Wills her red hair to "RozH Randall, and continues imbibing the fountain of knowledge while seeking a degree higher than the Ph. D. Sherry Daly gives her incredible hair-do's to anyone else who could wear them and leaves to continue her history of one continuous Paige. Ann McCarty leaves her Ames and higher standards to the succeeding students of Stratford and becomes thefirstwoman president. Emma Orr departs from Stratford on Winged feet and joins Bill to command their "squad- ron." Sally Champlin parts with her laugh to give it to Martha Jane Smith and is seen devoting the rest of her life to S-C-O-T-C-H. ClScien- tiflc Care of the Connecticut Dot Jane Jimmerson relinquishes her loquacity to Elizabeth Hammock and picks up her life to carry on to be the sweetheart of the Air Corps. Evelyn Rose wills her sophistication to " Be" Wright and devotes the rest of her life to riveting. C203 June Nicholas leaves nothing at "al" and goes into collaboration with Bob Hope in his new hit "W'it While You Wait" program. Sinny Macmillan leaves the "Roost" in a chaotic condition, and goes into the study of the English language. Mary -Beth Ames, after bestowing her nails on Dot McClure, leaves to enter a scientific study of keeping the ends of her hair up. Jean McDaniel donated her earrings to "Robin,' Mahoney, and is found planning U. S. O. entertainments. Leaving her one-man bridge games to who- ever is Bent-on going crazy, Rusty Kretschmar takes up a career singing coloratura parts in light opera. "Cookie" Marrett parts with her "Vic" and gives it to and establishes the hrst one-woman orchestra. Caroline Clore would leave a pack of gum to every potential secretarial student but be- cause of priorities she will just leave to take up life in the nursery to care for the BUDdings BRUCES. Libby High wills her jitterbugging to "Boze" and goes to Harlem to delve further into the primitive art. Marjorie Gatewood gives her typewriter to Polly Donnell and starts tl1e 'first typewriting course by correspondence. Claire Noyes leaves her continual state of confusion for the first time. Here's hoping the coming-out party is successful. "Schnick" deRonge leaves a pair of hard- ened eardrums to Miss Shields and goes forth to play her recordings in the asylum for the deaf. Virginia Pullen parts with her Beowulf note- book to give it to Mary Moorman Jones and is now mending small parachutes. "Ve" Woodson and Jean Manice NOSTRADANIUS, JR.,JR. JR.,JR. JR. JR.

Graduation has come at last to the Hall Class of '43. lHigh school books are closed, leaving a record worthy of display. Guided by Miss Elizabeth Pannill, this class symbolized by a gold and white banner and the yellow Iris, offers a challenge to those who follow in their footsteps. These footsteps now take different pathways-some to the far corners of the earth, others to continue at Stratford and carry on the Spirit of '43.

History is Tllll llil ---- ry Upon receiving their orders for September, 1939, five eager, young enlistees reported for duty at Stratford. With Gene Ray in com- mand, assisted by Jean Yarboro, Carter Boat- wright, Isabel Lewis, and Addie Stanley, much was accomplished by these members of a squad. The lirst medal came on October Day when we marched off the field with the winning banner. Our status increased the next year with Jean Boze, Virginia Marshall, and Marion lvleloney as new supporters. The third year Barbara Anne Beasley, Anita Lou Davenson, "Suzy" Leitch, Mary Pickett, and Faith Liberman, were added to the roll call. Finally promoted to Senior Rank in our last round of training, we had many eventful times. Our enlistment had now become a large com- pany. The new recruits from Virginia were Jean Trevvett, Barbara Reich, Joyce Evans, and hlae Murray, Tar Heels of North Carolina, Camilla Ray, and Priscilla Nlitchellg from New York, Carolyn Cunningham, Gloria Gersh, Nlildred Miro, and Pat O'Connor, and sunny Florida, Jane-Arthur Etheridge. Bob Anne Beasley was honorably made all- star commander-in-chief, and ably assisted on her staff by hilary Pickett, Virginia Nlarshall, Jean Trevvett, and Mae Murray. November quickly rolled around and Bob Anne and Isabel Lewis admirably represented our ability by giving toasts at the Founders' Day Banquet. Joyce Evans played tricks on us and Jane-Arthur Etheridge turned into an old maid in the fall play, "Quality Streetf' We were proud to have Marion Meloney as the lovely Madonna of the annual Christmas Nativity. Virginia Nlarshall and Isabel Lewis also had parts in this traditional pageant. When we returned after the holidays we were pleased to find two new volunteers, lvlarjorie Wyatt and Anne Wilson. Good English week adorned us with new awards when Isabel Lewis' poster ranked highest, Jane-Arthur Etheridge received first honors in the English Contest, and our tags, of wings keeping Good English Flying, were honorably mentioned. VVe seniors went "all out" for the annual hlagazine Contest and came up as class winner, with Gene Ray meriting individual honors. Spring came and we sponsored the traditional Spring Planting Day. Our dramatists became sophisticated in, "The Opera," one of the spring plays. Our own Barbara Reich was chosen to be Maid of Honor in the May Court, and three more beauties, Marion Meloney, Virginia Marshall, and Gene Ray, were also in the court. Our training has now come to an end, and we must try our new-found wings for stronger and better things for this world. Happy Landing! Senior Hall Prepheey As the immortal poet, Shakespeare, once put it- "All the worldb' cz Jtage And all the 'men and women merely players: They have their exit! and their entrancerj And one man in hir time play: many pczrtr, Hir act: being reaeu ages." We, the members of the Senior Hall, Class of '43, have just finished an act and now are ready C307 to make another entrance-this time into the world. Let us look forward to the year, 1953, and see what we will be doing then. Anita Lou Davenson is now married to Dougie and they have just bought a larger estate to make more room for ':Nita's" col- lection of Dougie's pictures. Joyce Evans is now Blacksburg's most well- known track star. She got her training run- ning after Mac back in '43. F03 1943 Virginia Marshall is the star in the new radio show, "W'hy Don't You Do Right P" co- starring John Murray, "The Victor Mature of 7S3'7? Mariori Nleloney is married to WVarren, New York's most eminent surgeon. Marion spends her spare time designing pink and blue operat- ing gowns for her husband. Gloria Gersh has started her own "Letters to the Lonely" bureau. If we remember cor- rectly, she made an excellent start back at Stratford. Mary Picket, after many years of struggle, has finally advanced from sweetheart of Cl1icago's "public enemy no. 2" to wife of "public enemy no. If' Carter Boatwright has given up her dancing career to marry Russell Newton, her old fiame of '43. She is now engrossed in designing her own home on her new lake at "Dan's Hill." Jean Boze, this year, was awarded a cup for having attended more midwinters at William and Mary than anyone else. Isabel Lewis' horse, ':Stratford,,' has just won the Kentucky Derby. It was trained on her private estate at Darlington, S. C. Mae Murray has remained in Danville and is now the wife of Mr. Fuller. A strange coin- cidence is that Mr. Fuller is now working with the Brush Company of the same name. Jacqueline Brill is still living in New York City but now has her own apartment and is Saks' top designer of long-tailed shirts for girls. Gene Ray, now Mrs. john Minor, was re- cently elected president of the Alumnae Asso- ciation and is doing all in her power to further the Student Activity Bill. Priscilla Mitchell has turned her Greens- boro estate into a U. S. O. center for the men stationed at the air base there. Co-working with her is Carolyn Cunningham who is in charge of enlisting the entertainment of the men's favorite movie stars. The men are sur- prised to find that more actors than actresses are appearing on their programs. jean Yarboro, lier husband and her two children have recently moved to a new pent C31l house on Riverside Drive. Her husband in a statement to the press said, "I owe my success to my wife." Faith Liberman is this year entering VVelles- ley as a freshman, Latin having been omitted from the entrance requirements for the first time. Addie Stanley, now one of Stratford's alumnae, annually awards the Stanley cup to the student who has attended Stratford the greatest number of years. Barbara Reich, now Nlrs. VVelly Goddin, is the owner of one of Richmond's most exclusive woman's shops. Rumor has it that Barbara designs for Nirs. Roosevelt, who incidentally is still in the W'hite House. Mildred Miro is now ofiicially head of the publicity department of Holy Cross. Even back in '43 the general opinion was that this would be her career. Jane-Arthur Etheridge has just published her most successful collection of verse, "Mem- ories of Stratford." We are unable to judge this work fairly as we have read only two of the six volumes. Pat O'Connor has recently discovered an injection making possible the painless removal of tonsils. She used her own experience at the Danville Memorial Hospital as a basis for her research. The numerous and seemingly pointless questions that Camilla Ray asked during her year at Stratford have finally been turned to a useful purpose. "Cootie" is now managing an information booth at the Naval Training Station at Norfolk. Anne Wilson is making a lecture tour through South America lecturing on "How to Speak Spanish" and as her most efficient secretary we find Margery W'yatt. jean Trevvett, now treasurer of the W. D.- U. A. CWives of the Duke University Alumnaej seems to be just as efficient balancing the books of this organization as she was for the Senior Hall Class in 1943. Susan Leitch and Bob Anne Beasley, having discovered their writing ability while doing the Senior Class Prophecy, believe that they will be among the world's most noted humorists. The rest of the world, however, has its doubts. 'lllll Illl Senior flu!! Will Now that the year is over we, the Senior Hall Class of '43, leave this will of memories and unforgotten times. We wish the girls that follow in our footsteps the best of luck and the most of everything. A bouquet of orchids goes to Miss Pannill, to whom we owe our sincere gratitude for the endless hours she has spent to make us all the ideal Stratford student. As for the faculty we hope the Class of ,43 will prove to be a lighter burden upon the shoulders of you all-if possible? At last the time has come to take a glance up the stairway of the past. Barbara Reich leaves her sweet, innocent voice to Jane Stimmel. Joyce Evans leaves her smoking permission QD to Eileen Maitland. Nancy Carter Boatwright leaves her Latin and geometry brilliance to Rosa Gray Simp- son. Her four years stay at Stratford is left by Addie Stanley to Anita Smith. Susan Leitch leaves the new arrangement of the books in the library to anyone that can manage to find the hidden key. Jean Trevvett wills her brilliance to Lawry Clark. Faith Liberman leaves her seat outside the telephone booth to Betty Hess. Carolyn Cunningham leaves her seat in "Idiot's Delight" to anyone who is interested. Virginia Marshall bestows her scientific nature to Barbara Cary. Mae Nlurray has left John Fuller to any little girl that can get him-huh! C323 Jean Boze leaves Helen Weaver her card for an appointment to meet Shakespeare in 1950. Isabel Lewis wills "Eight Bells" to Jean Pritchett. Margaret Ann Beasley leaves her many freckles to Mildred Helm. To anyone that can pick up where she left off, Mary Pickett leaves the spot in front of Stratford College at 5:45. Marion Meloney leaves Stratford Hall- period! Ann Wilson leaves her bed in the infirmary with regret. Camilla Ray bestows her daily letters from "Branna River" to Marjorie Zug. Pat O'Connor leaves her height to "Peter" Pannill. Gloria Gersh's bottle of peroxide goes to Betty Woods. Mildred Miro wills her Spanish records and accent to Jean Manice. Gene Ray leaves her place in Miss Hoofie's heart to Betsy Coleman. Priscilla Nlitchell leaves her blond locks to Gloria Jernigin. Marjorie Wyatt leaves her bashfulness to Ann Dick Pritchard. Anita Lou Davenson regretfully leaves Mail Box No. 471 to any under-grad who can follow- up with daily Air Corps mail! Jean Yarboro leaves her love of Latin to Margaret Handy. jane-Arthur Etheridge leaves her athletic ability to Betty Boatwright. , Jackie Brill donates her drawing board to anyone who wants it.

XVith the colors of red and white and their flower, the gardenia, and ably assisted by their sponsor, Miss Mary Richardson, the " Freshiesn have marched forward. In sports they challenged the Senior College to a hockey game, won the class basket ball tournament, in addition to various individual achievements. In other activities they likewise took honors-dramatic, musical and literary. They entered all and proved their sportsmanship, interest and coopera- tion. With such a record this Class of ,44 cannot help winning through to great victories. 1347 QY f ?MfQ9J4f 5 M f 55 ---- MLX f f . 1 ,jf Af I -Wyfy Jhfuywvff N X ff gy QW-Yip-'IK ldj-1-J Dv talk: ,4 I 'f:'f-Mi 421 JJ, UW" Ak' 6' fro J '4M:'ZWL.,m I If fi?

By making and enforcing their own rules the Stratford students prove that the youth of America is capable of directing themselves and solving their own problems. The members of the council are elected by the student body as their repre- sentatives to act as their voice in carrying forth their ideas for the betterment of the school as a Whole. lVith the use of an Honor System, the students learn responsibility and self- discipline by upholding the rules and regulations, and, in so doing, develop into better future Americans.
