HIM irE Co tf)e Voeet iSriar tutients A GREETING FROM THE ALUMNJE ORITUR AE salutamus, " ice, about to die, salute you, is usually the topic sentence of a message from the Senior Class to its Alma Mater. A message from the Alumnffi could find no more fitting text than, " non mortuae salutamus, " we, not having died, salute you. For a graduate, college life does not end when she receives her diploma. Love and loyalty to her Alma Mater are still vital forces in her life. There are several things that the Alumnfe would say to their little sisters. First of all, you will find that when you leave college, college does not leave you. Everything that you do or see is consciously or uncon- sciously compared with Sweet Briar or the things or people at Sweet Briar. Sweet Briar becomes your standard of value. The places you see are all more or less beautiful than Sweet Briar (let me say that they are invariably less beautiful) ; the books you read are liked or disliked according to the opinions you formed at Sweet Briar; new friends are compared with college friends ; the code of ethics influenced by the Student Government Association, by the sportsman-like spirit of athletics, by the Y. W. C. A., and by the Sunday services at Sweet Briar, remains your guide throughout life. Since these things are true — and they are true, for I speak from experience — it becomes the solemn duty and privilege of graduates and undergraduates to make Sweet Briar as high and true and pure as possible. We nuist have a high standard of value. Fortunately, because of the devoted work of those who have gone before, both students and faculty. Sweet Briar has been and is a worthy mother. But a college is not made once and for all. Each year it goes forward or back. We must see that Sweet Briar goes forward. limit 1 Second, when we enter college we lose to a certain extent our individuality and l)ecome part of something bigger. Our connection with Sweet Briar begins with our freshman year and lasts, without a break, until our death. Our conduct is no longer our concern alone, because from now on we are a part of Sweet Briar. We represent Sweet Briar to the outside world. How can one judge a college except by the individuals which compose it? After graduation you will find that you are still " Sweet Briar " to the people you meet, for they invariably find out your Alma Mater and judge your college according to your acts. This throws an immense responsibility on all of us. Oiu- conduct must never be such as might reflect on the fair name of Sweet Briar. Let us do nothing unworthy of our Alma Mater. In the third place, we, the Alumns, would express our appre- ciation and thanks to the Sweet Briar students who have dedicated this Briar Patch to us. Please accept our heart-felt " Thank you. " Re- member that when you leave the college walls we will be standing ready to welcome you into our Association; ready and waiting for suggestions and ideas from you as to how to make Sweet Briar and the Alunma? Association better. " Non mortuae salutamus " — and we ask that you join us in effort and prayer for Sweet Briar, so that the words of the Sweet Briar song may be fully realized : " Sweet Briar, Sweet Briar, we sing to thee. May thy foundations ever be Strong as the hills, thy purity That of thy rose. Sweet Briar. " M. R. Martin, ' 18. epidemic Buitct Sweet Bri tJeiHSf? p l KOR IP] [SIHI « BoartJ of Birectors Rev.

We couldn ' t get along without her any more than we could do without EMMA I.AWSON ADAMS RICHMOND, VA. She excels in pep, good nature, and good dancing. Emma is just the girl to have around on a rainy day. or any other kind of dav. MIHIM M FIMTEEIHI JOSEPHINE HARRIET AHARA MISHAWAKA, IND. is the lady responsible for the pictures in this annual. Fine, aren ' t they? Well, so is Jo and her successor RHODA MARJORIE ALLEN OLEAN, N. Y. It doesn ' t seem natural to show Rhoda without Bootsey. but she comes farther on, and we haven ' t room enough to describe Rhoda anyhow; so we ' ll just have to give personal interviews. r HIMULAM 3P] 2F[Smi GERTRUDE ANDERSON FINDLAY, OHIO Gertie ' s small, but she gets there. There ' s no busier bee than Gertie when she gets started, and she gets results, too, as does MADELINE RUSSELL BIGGER RICHMOND, VA. You just have to see lier report to know what kind of a girl Madeline is. There ' s nothing she can ' t do. We of tlie annual know what we are talking about. RUSSE ROFER BLANKS VICKSBURG, MISS. Tliis picture of Russe is good, but you rt-ally have to see the original to get an idea of what we are saying. Once seen, never forgotten — that ' s Russe, and also her friend GENEVIEVE KATHERINE BROSIUS LOCK HAVEN, PA. Gee is one girl in a hundred, as every junior knows. We may have some doubts about some others, but we know that Gee will stand by us until we leave tlie college behind us in 1921. ]IE]Mjm MMPOIMI ELIZABETH JOY COLE OMAHA. NEB. Betty isn ' t very big, but " don ' t judge a book by its cover. " In brains and ability Betty registers A -}-. and every one who saw " Be Calm, Camilla " knows that she has considerable histrionic ability. So why not be small . CATHERINE LOMAX COUDES PITTSHIHGH. PA. Now, with Kate it ' s a little different. She is bigger than Betty in size and just as big in every other way. Wiiat she can ' t do, we ' d like to find out. She not only does everything one mortal could do, but she does everything well. The juniors couldn ' t live without her. ii]iM jm iH arisSii KATHERINE DAVIS MILFORD, DEL. Besides resembling Billie Burke. Kitty is a very accomplished artist. She used to play the violin, but discarded it in favor of the paint brusli. and at tliis she can ' t be beat. FLORENCE VIRGINIA DOWDEN FAIRMONT, W. VA. is the only girl in school who has ever been to tlie summer home of all biologists, " Woods Hole. ' Miss Howland will have to watch out for her laurels when P ' lorence comes along. i 1 r EDITH MEGRUE DURRELL CINCINNATI, OHIO Edith is our class treasurer, and in spite of the mean job makes a great success of it. Speaking of success, you should liave seen her in " Quality Street. " FANNY GOULDING ELLSWORTH BRON.WILLE, N. Y. We guess that Fanny will be both sur- prised and pleased, but a little more sur- prised than pleased to see her full name in print. ' e put it there because we like it — because it stands for Fannv and everything that Fanny stands for. leiHIMaRl PlMPOHil ISABEL .MOSKI.EY CODWIN RICHMOND, VA. The juniors are banking liope on Isabel. We all know that some day we shall say with pride that we belonged to tlie same old ■:.M that she did. MATTIE DEYERT.E HAMMOND tOVINGTOX. VA. In our class there ' s always room for one more, especially for one more like Mattie. We only wish that we had liad her al- ways, but we ' re making the most of the time that she will be with us. P ML om " 3F. [SIHI FLORENCE BLISS IVES IPPER MONTCLAIR, N. J. is one of our classmates who is well known to every one in school because of her varied activities. We have all kinds of celebrities in our midst, and none more noted than Florence and DOROTHY ANN JOB ASHLAND. KY. our noted math shark. It just makes us dizzy to think of all the problems slie lias worked out. and we take oft our bonnets to her every time. Dorothy is certainly a good ad for Sweet Briar — just look at the new airls liere from lier liome town ! MARTHA SHANNON MORGAN BROCKPORT, N. Y. We haven ' t had Martha very long, but we surely do like her. From the three samples of Brockport society that are among us, we don ' t think we would mind living there one bit. HALLE VIRGINIA MOORE CLARKESDALE, MISS. is a girl that Miss Sparrow and the juniors are proud of. It ' s really a shame for any one girl to know so mucli about anything. However, Halle is a good old scout, and we don ' t begrudge her any- thing. amin mm MARY WILLIS McLEMORE SUFFOLK, VA. Lette is one of tlie best all-round girls in college. She is good in classes, in basket-ball, in dancing — in fact, every- thing. Wliat she lacks in vocal ability is supplied by MARY BELLE McNALLY RENA LARA, MISS. Mary Belle is not only famous as a singer, but as a raconteuse. Her room is haunted by Carsonites who flock to liear lier fascinating stories. Slie is always ready to entertain. HIEIM M . SP[01HI ■n KATHERIxVE ELLISON PENNEWILL DOVER, DEL. GERTRUDE ANNE PAULEY MILWAUKEE. WIS. We all wi.sli that we were boon com- [janioiLs of Gert ' s so that we could share in the wonderful things she concocts in tlie Home Ec. Lab. — not that slie ' s stingy or anything, but she just never could feed all the mouths which sing her praises in the art of cooking. W ' c don ' t see as much of Kat as we ' d like, because she is always surrounded by a grou|) of U. Va. men. We look to Kat to hold our class up to the rest .sociallv. I1IM]M0R IR ap[ IHI SHELLEY READE ROUSE COVINGTON, KY., is almost too complex to be written up. Shelley is one of the few people who really deserve to be interviewed. Bright- est and cleverest among our literary lights, Shelley has a fitting companion in MAYNETTE ROZELLE CHAMBERSBURG, PA. We just acquired Maynette this year, and what was ' 20 ' s loss was ' 2rs gain. There ' s always more room at the top for girls as gifted as Maynette. FLORENCE LAND SCOVELL is almost a stranger to us under that name, but as " Bootsey " she is one of our favorite girls. There are few girls in college with a disposition like hers, and we hope she never leaves us for any one. We just couldn ' t do without her well-known laugh any more than we could part with MARION DOROTHY SHAFER BROCKPORT, N. Y. They don ' t make many girls like Shafe, and we ' re glad we have the original. For ability and personality her name, like Abou Ben Adhem ' s, leads all the rest. ALICE MADELON SHIDLER SOUTH BEND, IND. Madelon is another one of those people who excel in executive ability. She does many things and succeeds with all. To see her excel you should see her as Patty. We never shall forget her or SARA ELIZABETH SHOOP SUFFOLK, VA. The second Lette is quite as famous as the first. Shoop is welcome everywhere. But the two things which bind her to our hearts are her singing and her effervescent humor, which is always bubbling over. TRANCES HARTWELL SIMPSON CINCINNATI, OHIO We can ' t say enough about Fran ' s act- ing or Iier brains. It ' s just impossible to find any one who equals her in either respect, and ' 21 is as proud to claim her as a member as it is to claim RUTH SIMPSON LOWELL, MASS. No wonder Ruth is sweet. Look at the candy she gets. She is never without it; though it ' s a wonder, because she is the most generous soul alive. HIMIM M IP. aPiniMI MARGARET SPENGEL DENVER. COLO. Just look over the Briar Patch and you ' ll see what a valuable person Mar- garet i.s to us. She not only has ability to execute, but the vastest number of ideas. To her much of tlie success of our book is due — at least all that is not due to MARY ROBIN.S TAYLOR RICHMOND, VA., our editor-in-chief. Tay has alwavs held a high place in our class, and, a.s she goes on, we appreciate her more and more. There ' s nothing good enougli to say about Tay, so we have to leave her and pass on to 87 HJMI M IH OIHr KATHERINE PAOLI FAIRFAX TAYLOR MEMPHIS, TENN. This is an awfull.v long name for such a little person, but Katy is only small in size. She is one of our biggest members. Without Katy we ' d be decidedly lacking in pep and Dramatics. As both are es- sential wc hope we ' ll never lose her or SARA VIRGINIA TOLAR FAYETTEVILLE, N. C, our president. Speaking of brains — ask Sara, or ratlier find out witliout asking her, for she ' ll never tell you how many A ' s she pulls. We owe much of our suc- cess this year to Sally ' s untiring service. nim jHi ip. apismi ' MIRIAM COOKE THOMPSON BROCKPORT, N. Y. is one of tlie best friends we have. She may not say so mucli about it, but " still waters run deep, " and we know she s there whenever we want her. FLORENCE ELIZABETH WOELFEL MORRIS, ILL., left us last year, but this year we are glad to see her back among us. Our class is large, but we never can afford to lose people like Florence. ' Iffflptll ■ " ELLEN ELIZABETH WOLF WILKES-BAHRE. PA.. closes the class roll, but her name comes last for alphabetical reasons only. Ellen ' s athletic prowess is one of the things that 1921 has given to the college. She will long be remembered as the first girl who won a sweater from the S. B. A. A. with the grand total of 1,160 points — and only her junior year at that ! CLARA DOROTHY HOGANS OAK PARK, ILL. We ' re mighty sorry that we didn ' t get Clara ' s picture, but you see she didn ' t come until so late that the camera-man had skipped. Anyway, xce have Clara, so wo should worrv !

The captain was an officer well able to command, and all the crew they trusted her to bring them safe to land. The first mate and the scrivener, their records bear no scar; the purser was a jolly chap, as all good pursers are. The supercargo of the ship was Gascoigne hight by name; the sailors all waxed musical, they were so glad she came. One dusky night when all was black, and high rolled every wave, they nearly sent another crew into a watery grave. But Neptune and the greater gods had several words to say; each vessel merely bowed, and then continued on its way. Out in the open sea again they nearly came to grief on the hidden rocks and shoals of Examination Reef. After a few well-weathered storms, the good ship started south, and, with all colors flying, made for the Junior River ' s mouth. In the port of Junior disembarked these voyagers of the main, to rest till next September should call them out again. jfrtstman Class Motto: " Spectantur af cndo " Mascot: Lion Colors: Delph Blue and Black Emblem: White Pine Officers MARGARET WISE President DOROTHY NICKELSON J-ice-President LOUISA NEWKIRK Secretary MARY KEMPER Treasurer DOROTHY ELLIS Honor Council MISS SPARROW Ilonorari Member Cla00 Holl Ethel Addison Mary Allen Julia Anderson Mildred Baird CrssETA Beaton Josephine Bechtel Margaret Beegle Margaret Benton Christine Berger Lucile Bowles Marion Bowles ROGENE BoYLES Eunice Branch Louise Brinkley Ellen Brown Mae Brown Harrietts Brush Beatrice Bryant Matilda Bryant Helen Burke 1 Iargaret Burwell Marjorie Cannon Mary Chantler Ethelwyn Clarkson Katharine Cooke Emma Mai Crockett Dorothy Copeland Dorothea Derby Willetta Dolle Dorothy Ellis Lillian Everett Adele Fies Anna Foster Elizabeth Franklin p r POIHE Louise Frank Helen Gans Gertrude Geer Margaret Gehris I-ucille Glenn Pauline Goodnow Anne Grines Jane Guignard Florine Guilbert Marion Hafner Katherine Hagler Elizabeth Hall Curtis Henderson Bessie Hoge Mary Howe Katherine Hancock Alice Huber Frances Insley Rebecca Janney May Jennings Mary H.

But their exceptional qualities only began here, as was seen by their popularity at the lovely party given to them by the " old girls. " In fact, never were aprons more docilely worn, never were laws more strictly kept, and never were antics more dutifully and sportively performed on Founder ' s Day. How could the spirit of the freshman class be anything but the brightest when it was so patiently and lovingly fostered by their sister class, the juniors! It was not even phased by the taunting songs of the sophomores. The true value of the class was formally recognized by the faculty, after it had triumphed over exams, by permission to have the first freshman mid-year dance. The crowning glory of all are the class officers : Margaret Wise, President; Dorothy Nicholson, Vice-President; Louisa Newkirk, Secretary; Mary Kemper, Treasurer; Dorothy Ellis, INIember of Honor Council. Under their guidance the class is certain to do honor to the insignia and motto bequeathed to them by the class of nineteen- nineteen. 101 1 _fv.. K ■% K l B t ' " ifc I Jjl ig dHifteal 1 :- , .

In former years we have felt that as college stu- dents we have been hampered by having among us the number of Academy students who have kept us from being a homo- geneous body. This year, therefore, mai-ks an epoch in the history of our association, for it is the first year that we have been without the Academy. In consequence, the average age of the students has been bi-ought up, which allows us to obtain more privileges, because we have more matiu ' e girls to rely ujjon to uphold our standard. Our aim is to run the association on principle, to set as an ideal for each member the highest standard of honor and individual respon- sibility. We do not want the association looked upon as a collection of rules, of " don ' ts " and " dos, " but as a democratic organization to provide for us the best possible means of living together in the college community. The i-ides and ])y-laws are only a necessary part of the organization and shoidd constitute a very minor part. When each individual member realizes that the success of the whole absolutely depends upon her, and that any slackening in her sense of responsibility or any failure to keep to the strictest standard of personal honor will pull down the standard of the whole, then and only then will the association be a success.

[S]HI 1. ®H. C. 3. HE general unrest, which has pervaded the world since the close of the war, has given Christian Service Or- ganizations an opjjortunity to prove their value. The Y. W. C. A. has more than fulfilled its calls to aid humanity in all fields, especially in the field with which we are so intimately concerned; namely, college work. If the Sweet Briar girl of 1908, 1909, or even she of a more recent date, could observe the work of the Y. W. C. A. at Sweet Briar, it is certain the conclusion would be that " Y. W. " here is in a fair way toward accomplishing its great purpose, linking the Association with the college girl in all her various activities, joys, and disappointments. At the beginning of the year, the new girl is welcomed at a reception managed by the Social Committee. Her Sunday evenings are profit- ably spent at meetings whose intimate and yet insti-uctive tone is not their least value. The Publicity Committee keeps the college girl in touch with " Y. W. " aff ' airs of the college and the world by means of posters and bulletin-boards. When she is sick, she is visited at the infirmary and the student body receives daily bulletins concerning her health from a unique bulletin-board. Every girl has an opportunity to enter voluntary study classes which take up many subjects of vital interest to the college woman of to-day. Those interested in Social Service find ample scope for their talents in the work of the Indian Mission, Amherst County Poor House, the Sunday school for people on the place, and in classes among the maids. With " Y. W. " so closely concerned in all her activities, it is a natural outcome that the college girl should look back of the material results, observe the spiritual impetus of the same, and so be led to Christ. 115 r HIMlMaRi iP.MP[S]1iI Blue i itigf WAY down in North Carolina on the side of a great mountain hes, or rather perches, Blue Ridge. The first view of it from the railway station at Black INIountain is inspirhig, and the inspiration is renewed at every turn. Per- haps the most wonderful thing ahout Blue Ridge is the view fronting Robert E. Lee Hall, the nucleus of Blue Ridge life. Stand- ing on the broad piazza, looking across the valley with its many roads winding in and out amid the fields and forests, you see the blue outlines of a long, high range of mountains, rugged and majestic in their dignified beauty. It may be the atmosphere of the conference, it may be just imagina- tion, but somehow God seems very real to you up there. Each day at Blue Ridge is filled with interesting things. All morning there are Bible and mission-study classes, lectm-es, and meet- ings for the discussion of Y. W. work. At these meetings you find girls from colleges all over the South, and you learn many things about ii]iE]Ma iP arisiMl the management and business of other Y. W. C. A. ' s. In the after- noon there are liiking, swimming, tennis, and other sports. Parties often climb Hightop, the mountain on which Bhie Ridge is situated, to watch the sun set, and even to see it rise. At six o ' clock it is dinner time, and each delegation gathers around its table in the big refectory. What an ajjpetite the mountain air gives you, and how good every- thing tastes! During the meal there is great rivalry between the different colleges, each one vying with the others in the rendition of serenades. Blue Ridge and college songs. Later there are games, lec- tures, or stejj-singing in front of the main hall. Last and almost best of all are the delegation meetings, just before " Taps, " when the mem- bers of each delegation discuss together what has happened during the day. The finest thing you can bring with you from the conference is what is known as the Blue Ridge spirit. This may be defined as " happy helpfulness, " for every one is eager to help you in any possible way, and every one is happy. There you are proud of being a Chris- tian ; it seems a thing to be jiroud of, to try and live up to, more than ever before. You might well jiut your whole life into Blue Ridge, and not get half from it of what is there for you. Blue Ridge is one of the " high places " of our country, and if you doubt this, just ask any one who has been there. idK- iz- ' Ui ' nts HIMIM M 3H [gIHI BramatifS KATHERINE TAYLOR President RHODA ALLEN Vice-President STANLEY MILLER Secretary and Treasurer Bramatics HE dramatic season was rather late in ojjening, but on the whole it seems it was for the ])est, for the quar- antine which has descended upon us renders entertain- ment of any kind by no means unwelcome. The Junior Class Play and the Athletic INIinstrel Show, which came earlier in the year, were not under " Dramatics, " but they were splendid examples of Sweet Briar dramatic talent, and awakened a new and very lively interest in the productions of Paint and Patches. The first play was " Be Calm, Camilla, " presented by the new Ripplers on the lith of February, and gave Sweet Briar an entirely new list of stars. Mary Allen, as Junius Patterson, and JNIary Heath Jones, in the title role, were all that could be desired as leading man and woman, and they were supported by a splendidly chosen cast. Louise Brinkley, Rebecca Janney, and Clare Robertson were con- spicuous, for their interpretation of their parts was among the re- markably good work of the entire cast, ancl the play as a whole was one of the best ever given at the college. The old members of Paint and Patches gave " Merely JMary Ann " on the 13th of JNIarch, starring Helen Beeson and Frances Simpson. The reception this play received proved fully that Sweet Briar is true to its old favorites. Each of the actors did noticeably tine work, and the result was a credit to Sweet Briar dramatic training. In view of the plays that have gone before we are expecting great things of the new Merry Jesters when they give their performance in May. 1jpplp:.i-5 Etppler Cljapter ©meets CATHERINE CORDES President ELIZABETH SHOOP Secretary and Treasurer Mary Allen Marion Adams Josephine Bell Selma Brandt Louise Brinklev Elizabeth Cole Catherine Cordes Burd Dickson Edith Duhrell em tiers Alice Earley Fanny Ellsworth Eleanor Flournoy Bessie Hoge Florence Ives Rebecca Janney Heath Jones Ruth Jones Ruth Martin 124 Margaret Mierke Clare Robertson LiLLiAs Shepherd Elizabeth Shoop Frances Simpson Laura Thompson Miriam Thompson Katherine Taylor Elizabeth Thigpen jeiEm JE]. 3F.

Everybody knew her par- ticular act perfectly and just when to perform it. And even the audience felt that sense of comfort that conies from knowing that the affair is going off smoothly. Beginning with El Guthrie and Jule Albers ' speech and right on through to the peppy finish, the show was full of interest, more or less clever local jokes, and nuisic. Gert Daily ' s Jazz-bo Band was one harmonious feature. Taylor, with her pins, caused an uproar with every appearance. All the solos were good. And Shoop, with hei- Galli-iNIacNally warble, retrieved her reputation and added a million to her credit. The end men were all that coidd be desired. We almost had to carry out a few gratifyingly appreciative ones in the front rows, who got tickled at the end men ' s antics and costumes. Jule ' s alarm-clock created a furor. On the whole the " jNIinstrels of 1919 " quite measured up to expectations. iiiirP ' )t g ' toops to Conquer " ATURDAY night, January 17, 1920, " She Stooixs to Conquer " was presented by the faculty for the benefit of the endowment fund. The chapel was filled to the last seat, and the fame of the cast havinf - reached as far as Amherst, a number of jjeople Avere present from there to see the performance. The scenery, for which we have JNIiss Schutte, Miss Henderson, JNIiss Lewis, and iNIiss Wagner to thank, was excellent; nothing better could have been asked. From the first to the last scene the play went off without a hitch, under the direction of Dr. Johnson. Most of the members of the cast made their initial bow over the footlights, but far be it from this humble pen to picture their success. Each and every one was most successful in his or her part. Miss Young, as Mrs. Hardcastle; JMiss Gascoigne, as Kate Hardcastle; ]im Jm IP. [SIHI Miss Kenley, as Constance Neville ; Miss Schutte, as Tony Lumpkin ; Mr. ] IcCiillough, as jNIr. Hardcastle ; Dr. Bradley, as Young Mar- low ; and Dr. McDougle, as George Hastings, filled the leading roles admirably. IMiss Gascoigne showed us quite clearly that coquetry was not the least of her charms, and ]Miss Kenley, smiling over her big featlier fan, completely won our hearts. Dr. Bradley and Dr. Mc- Dougle charmed their audience as well as they did the two young ladies, Mistress Kate and Mistress Constance. jNIiss Schutte, as Mrs. Hardcastle ' s " dear pale boy, " Tony Lumpkin, was greeted with ap- plause at every entrance on the stage. The minor parts were equally as well filled by JNIiss Langwill, as the landlord; Miss JNIorenus, as Sir Charles INIarlow; Miss Hender- son, as the maid; and Dr. Harley, Mr. Xierman, and IMiss Long, as fellows of the inn. Miss Long, JNIiss Langwill, and INIr. Xierman also took the parts of servants in several scenes. On the whole the evening was one of the most enjoyable spent by the students since the beginning of college. We can wish the faculty no better success than to wish them as much with their next play as with " She Stoops to Conquer. " 133 Jlim .

In order to reahze this ambition, the number and variety of organized sports should be as great as possible, so tliat every girl may have a chance to exercise her own particular ability. Recognition, also, of athletic merit, through various awards (num- erals, monograms, sweaters, etc. ) , should be given for every sport, so that all girls may have an equal chance to win them. The best means of attaining our desire seemed to be the adoption of a point system; so with the opening of the college year 1918-19 our point system was incorporated into the constitution of the Athletic Association, and has proved highly successful. This year we are introducing horseback riding as an organized sport, run in accordance with the point system on the same basis as hiking. Its popularity is attested by the number of girls who have won their first-semester riding points. The question of intercollegiate games in major sports, such as basket-ball and hockey, has caused a great deal of discussion in the past, and this year we decided that a few games with outside colleges would be good for Sweet Briar, provided we did not sacrifice our interclass games. It was then arranged for Sweet Briar to play Westhampton College, of Richmond, Virginia, one game in hockey and one in basket-ball. The hockey game was scheduled to take place at Sweet Briar. December 6th, but it liad to be cancelled on account of the extreme perversity of the weather. We are looking forward, how- ever, to tlie basket-ball game, which is to be played in Richmond. We are fortunate in having Miss Gascoigne again as athletic in- structor, after her absence abroad. We should now be able to advance steadily towards our ideal, and perhaps, some day, to reach it.

[SIHI Current Clients T tlie present time, when each day is making its eon- trihution to history and brings with it a new interest, the Current Events Ckib found its work cut out for it and especially discovered its place at Sweet Briar. The club has become almost a necessity since the college is so far from the activities of such commercial and political centers as those from which the girls have come that, without it, there would be danger of them becoming narrowed and ignorant of the important events of the every-day workl. It attempts to bring the students into closer touch with the ciu-rent history of the great, energetic country of which it is a part, and which is so important a factor among the great countries of the world to-day. Domestic problems are reviewed, and freely discussed and questioned at the open meetings. This is of great importance and interest on account of the numerous sections of the country that are represented here. Inter- national relations and foreign affairs are brought up for closer ac- quaintance and enlightemnent upon the numerous controversies. The enthusiastic head of Current Events this year is JMiss Mar- garet Turner, who is assisted by a grouj) of eight students. Miss Sparrow, head of the department of history, and Mr. McDougle, professor of economics, are the especial advisers of the club. The Tuesday evening meetings take various interesting forms. Animated cartoons presented an informative and delightful meeting. The jjrogram for an evening was devoted to each of the foin classes, who furnished from their number speakers upon the internal and domestic questions of the United States; while, on other occasions, ]Mr. JNIcDougle took up arguments for and against recent procedures of foreign nations that affect our country. A number of outside speakers also spoke to the club. Peace Day was commemorated by a charming address by Dr. Rodgers, of the University of Virginia. INIr. Waller, of the American Consulate at Athens, spoke of the different war experiences into which his diplomatic life had led him; and many other lecturers contributed to the program of the Cm-rent Events Club for the year. international l elattons € nh URING the first semester Dr. JMcDougle, head of the department of economics and sociology, reahzed that although many events of world-wide importance were taking place in the field of international diplomacy there was no class or group of students at Sweet Briar who had the oj jjortunity to study these problems care- fully. At the time of the Christmas vacation Dr. NIcDougle got in touch with the American Association for International Conciliation and inquired concerning the possil)ihty of forming an International Polity Club, under the auspices and with the assistance of the Carnegie Foundation for International Peace. Upon the recommendation of Prof. G. H. Blak eslee, of Clark University, editor of the Journal of Intcrnaiional Relations, permission was granted to start a club at Sweet Briar — with the promise that if the club proved a success the Carnegie people woidd extend their heartiest cooperation. The International Polity Clul) Conference at Cleveland, on December 30, 1919, voted to change the name of the college organi- zations throughout the country to International Relations Clubs. Under this title a chapter was formed at Sweet Briar at the beginning of the second semester in February. The club is composed of mem- bers of the three up2)er classes who have been voted upon by the faculty from a list of applicants submitted. Hereafter the club will nominate membei-s for faculty election. This policy was deemed necessary since the club meets as a study group once a week. At present a careful study is being made of Dr. S. P. Duggan ' s " League of Nations " and Herbert Adams Gibbons ' " The Xew Map of Asia. " In addition to doing intensive work in study groups, from time to time the club will have prominent speakers address the students of the college on special phases of current international interests. These speakers are provided by the generosity of the Carnegie Foundation. jeiHIMvM IP. [S31I The list for the present year includes ten leading college professors from American and British institutions, and a distinguished American editor. It is sincerely hoj ed that the work just started will prove in coming years to be one of the real factors in keeping us in touch with the events of the world outside our own national sphere.

FTER a week of perfect autumn weather, Founder ' s Day dawned — a drizzle. Every one ' s spirits fell as fast as the raindrops, for, of course, all plans for the day ' s festivities would have to be revised, and revision almost always causes an abatement in the general enthusiasm. But first thoughts in a case like this are usually anything but optimistic, and so, after more careful meditation, our spirits seemed to rise once more, ready to meet the situation, and the outlook did not seem entirely hopeless. The first revision of plans, which was necessitated by the weather conditions, was the change in the line of march to the chapel for the exercises at ten o ' clock. We entered by the side doors, thus shortening the line of march. Those powerful and magnetic strains of " Ancient of Days " led us in. The seniors, only, were disappointed by the change in the march, since they, appearing dignified and sedate in their caps and gowns, could not cast their awe-inspiring countenances upon the freshmen in the back seats of the chapel. The exercises, although old in form, still had their individual sparks of inspiration. HIHIM M IP MPOIHI Mr. Manson ' s story of Sweet Briar and its founders, although many years old, still held its interest for the old girls as well as the new. After these exercises were over, the students dispersed, but some — the sophomores and the freshmen — only to re-assemble in mysteri- ous fashion; the former to complete plans for the punishment of the latter, who were just as quick to form plans to defeat them; for this was Penalty t)ay for those unruly freshmen who had committed crimes in the past, and which had to be atoned for. Besides this reason, the sophomores were eager to use their chance " to get even " on this day; for they had not yet forgotten the injuries suffered a year ago. At one o ' clock the refectory was the center of attraction for reasons other than " Sweet Briar hunger. " Around the doors, all the members of both the antagonistic classes had assembled, impatiently waiting for the doors to open, so that they could make the walls of the refectory reecho with the insults of their enemy class, and with the merits of their own. The sophomores sang first from the balcony, gazing down with a triumphant air upon the freshmen, as they filed in. But the freshmen were not to be dismayed or foiled in their " come- back. " So they strategically waited until dinner was well on its way, and then suddenly they all arose to sing one of the cleverest and " peppiest " songs which have ever made Sweet Briar ' s walls reecho. After dinner there was still more excitement. The Vigilance Committee of the sophomore class, which was appointed to take charge of the various punishments, were faithful to their office of seeing that no culprit shirked her duties. Accordingly, the campus was soon a scene of ridiculous amusement for the seniors, sophomores, and visitors, but one of keen embarrassment and indignation for the juniors and freshmen. Songs were composed to accompany some of the most amusing sights, such as Stanley Miller hopping across the campus, while the sophomores sang : " We think it ' s lots of fun, sir, To make a freshman run, sir; To see old Stanley IMiller Galloping on the green. " Elizabeth McKellar furnished great amusement by blowing her little horn, accompanied by a song: " We all must laugh and crow, sir, To hear McKellar blow, sir ; The reason you all know, sir, She loves to toot her horn. " La Vern McGhee, dressed in vivid colors, entertained us with a take- off on a Hawaiian scene, playing her ukulele in the walnut tree, in spite of the drizzling rain. The sophomores aided her in her attempts at music thus : " We think it ' s not a crime, sir, To make a freshman climb, sir; To see La Vern McGhee Within the walnut tree. " Fritzie Virden became Galli-Curci for this illustrious occasion and favored the dancers in the " gym " with a few bars of her charming coloratura voice. These were just a few of the amusing penalties suffered by the freshmen. At four o ' clock the sophomores were merciful enough to release their victims, so they could go to The Dansanie, which lasted until supper time. Many features of Founder ' s Day have been pointed out, but one equally as important and unusual as the aforementioned features was the food. Every one enjoyed it to the fullest extent, and meals that day had a twofold interest for us. After supper was over, those who were going to the dance dis- persed to dress. Elinor Guthrie made a lovely appearance as she led the grand march, which started about nine o ' clock. All those who went to the dance seemed to have a " marvelous " time, but how could they help it with a real orchestra whose very name spelled " pep " ? The onlookers from the balcony, although sad-birds, gleaned a little joy at the dance by dancing in that exclusive space, though they could not go in full pomp and glory, " dragging " their " ten men. " It was a night never to be forgotten in Swe et Briar ' s history. Isolated Sweet Briar was fairlj ' bursting with excitement. The exclusive parking place of jNIr. jNIartindale ' s faithful Buick was usurjjcd by a great variety of cars. The entire atmosphere of the college was changed. Gaiety in its different aspects filled the air. Everybody connected with Sweet Briar in any way was happy. Founder ' s Day Scenes " 31MI JR1 F] [SIiS € )oix CAROLINE H.

My teachers — oh, give me a rhyme! One was professor of English, One teaches Psych, now, below, One ' s in the History department, And one is a man that I know. Now, I ' m not a shark with my lessons, — Tho ' some one considers me bright, — But you never can tell in some classrooms Whether you or the teacher is right. There ' re times when you know they ' re mistaken ; There ' re times when they think you ' re the same ; But the things that you learn out of library hours Will help you establish your fame. I was an innocent freshman, Didn ' t know anything much ; The English professor, she taught me Spanish and German and Dutch. We went to sleep in her classroom — So like a lawyer she were — She was quite nice in deliv ' ring advice, But I learned little English from her. 3i]EMom ip aFEiHi 1 Then the Psychology teacher Gave us an easier time ; She was quite learned — a doctor — And taught with a method sublime ; Taught me the Pillsbury theory — Rather peculiar it were, For if 3 ' ou ' re insane, something ' s wrong with your brain ! I learned some theories from her. Then in the History department I flew from the heights of my As, For I got a History flunk note, Which taught me that studying pays. That Hist ' ry professor was brilliant, Every one says that she were ; She had no time for play, read a book every day. And I did learn some Hist ' ry from her. Then I came home with my knowledge, ' Long of my " dip " and B. A. — I went to several big dances — He had such a masterly way ! Love at first sight — you may call it — Filled me right up to the brim, — And now I am done, but ' twas such heaps of fun. For I learned about loving from him ! I ' ve studied my lessons in college, And now I must lay them aside. For the more you can know that will help you Ls learned from the people outside ; And the end of it ' s working and waiting, And dreaming of what is to be ; So wish for my lot (don ' t say you will not). And learn about loving, like me ! A. Smythe, ' 22. r " mimMM. mm mm KIHOttim m tk.mm m£im sp sm:smmi i!s mkammi Name : Katherine Armstrong. Nickname : Katherine. Demeanor : Deceiving.

The base- ment of Sweet Briar house was flooded, and the sound of the rushing waters per- turbed even Mr. W. B. Dew. Dr. J. Franklin Bradley and Dr. Ivan E. McDougle. members of the Sweet Briar faculty, bravely dared the oncoming flood in order to ascertain the cause. Much relief was felt when it was announced that the sudden rise was occasioned by tlie accidental dropping in by Miss Ruth Fiske. A timely rescue was effected, and it is certain that no harm will come from her untimely bath. HAPPY BRIDE OF JOHN A. RUFFSTUFF SUICIDE ATTEMPTED Clever Young S. B.

Both the young couple are from Rockfish, Va., but the ceremony was performed by the Mayor of Leftwich, Va., in the city hall. Miss Webb went to Lynchburg pre- sumably on a pleasure trip, and it is thought met Mr. Ruffstuff at the Virginian Hotel. About 3 o ' clock the bride phoned Miss Gene- vieve Brosius from Left- wich. " Jenny dear, " she said. " I should worry about what Mr. Nierman does about the chemistry e. am. John and I are married and I ' m so happy ! " Miss Brosius fainted away and no further news can be obtained from the happy couple. Miss Webb, at the time of her elopement, was a popu- lar figure on the Sweet Briar campus.

" Jell-0 is so different from fudge and gingersnaps and the other things we eat all the time — so nice and fresh and cool to relieve the monotony. " There are six pure flavors of Jell-0: Straw- berry, Raspberry, Lemon, Orange, Cherry, Choco- late. Little folders in Jell-0 packages contain all the instructions anyone needs in making the " made-in-a- minute " Jell-0 dainties, but we shall be glad to send you the fine new Jell-0 Book if you will favor us with your address. THE GENESEE PURE FOOD COMPANY Le Roy, N. Y., and Bridgeburg, Ont. IN setting the type, print- ing, binding, and pre- paring the engravings for this book, our object was not to see how quickly and cheaply we could pro- duce the publication, but how well it could be done. Our whole aim in this, as in all our work, is to give the greatest attention to all the details, and produce printing that will be acredit to the institutions from hich the publications are issued. Our books will be just as good in the many years to come, when an annual is of greatest value, as they are to-day. P Bell Co, Inc Lynchburg Va 1731 678B 5. 0B 14«()1
