It was to gain some knowledge of things we didn ' t know. In our first days so verdant, we watched life ebb and flow. Then started out to make our mark — but that was long ago. Now looking backward on four years — so many things we find Of things both light and serious, of deeds with valour signed ; To live up to our principles to conquer all in mind. To hold aloft our standards — let all memories be kind. We ' ve had our little triumphs — we ' ve had our failures, too. And now we pass to the greater world with many things to do, Linked in soul and spirit, Alma Mater, strong with you The blue and green of ' 21 pledge loyalty firm and true. ♦ .♦ » ♦ JUMIDR id m !yi Rinn inr; BRIAR PATCH Junior Class Long years ago a monument was set Within the hearts of men — A poet wrote these words in Latin tongue And scrivened them in letters of pure gold: " Lest we forget . . . forget. " And now we ' ve gone so far along our way. Along the wondrous way of college life; And now the doors are opening — again We see the things we had some time forgot. O Class of Sweet Briar Juniors, in this day Of rush and hurry after Wealth and Fame, Remember this our motto and resolve To pledge ourselves anew to faithfulness, To live according to our promises. That when we leave our old familiar seats. Enfring the stir and whirl of larger life, The future classes may revere our name And keep our motto theirs : " Lest we forget.

For afar into tlie Northlands, away to the broad lands of the West, and deep into the Southlands did the fame of this high-walled city spread. And at their knock there did come a Gracious Lady who bespoke them fair and did give to them good welcome to her city. But thus made she war ning, sajdng, " Lo, the road of Those Who Seek is not one of smoothness, but is oft beset with obstacles. Ne ' ertheless within these walls will ye find great joy, yet will ye not be free from Dolor, for so it is with Life. Howsoever, if ye be not afeared but hold faithful to the cause. The Place of Light will be revealed. " Wherefore at these words the heads of the maidens were uplifted, for of gallant heart were they; and clear-visioned they did accept the challenge, entering straight way. Then chose they leaders for their Search and the Swan of Puritj ' to be their guide. This they did emblazon on a banner of deep purjile and fair gold, inscribing beneath the words. Facto non verhiim! So it was that the maidens came to dwell within the high- walled city and to seek after the True Knowledge which alone is the Light of Life. -• « ♦ ♦ • rSTUDEMTH BDVEKhriEnT BRIAR PATCH tutient (l o )ernment dissociation Officers FANNY ELLSWORTH President MADELINE BIGGER Vice-Presideni GERTRUDE DALLY Secretary MARION SHAFER Treasurer ( unn Mz Committee MARGARET MIERKE House President of Grammar MARGARET WISE House President of Manson ELIZABETH TAYLOR House President of Randolph ELIZABETH COLE House President of Gray MAYNETTE ROZELLE House President of Carson Ii)onorarp emliers Frances Simpson Amey ' Smyth Harriet Brush 90 BRIAR PATCH g tutitnt O o )ernmrnt HE very center of the campus life is the Student Government Association. This self-governing body is not directly under the supervision of the faculty, for the latter merely approves its laws and rulings, which are actually made by the students themselves. Xo hardship is placed on any particular person, for every one has to obey the same voice, that of public opinion. The keystone of the Student Govermiient arch is Honor, in work and in play. But for its observance the whole system would collapse and with it would vanish all the rights and jirivileges now enjoyed by the students of the college. The Association stands for all that is best and highest in our school world. Its officers are girls who are chosen by their companions because of their character and worth, and who are entrusted with the carrying out of the laws which each mem- ber of the Association has helped to formulate. If every one will realize her individual responsibility and try to live up to it, the organi- zation will succeed, and the college be strengthened thereby. 92 - % • ♦ t House Presidents Helem Tayloh fire chief BRIAR PATCH oung KBomnt ' s Christian dissociation Dfficcrs MARY TAYLOR President RUTH FISKE Vice-President LYDIA PURCELL Secretar, ELIZABETH COLE Treasurer Cabinet Helen Taylor Maynette Rozelle Florence Ives Elizabeth Taylor Helen Anderson Marjorie Millioan Virginia Stanberry Louisa Newkirk Edith Durrell 96 ' •■ ■■♦ BRIAR PATCH || 1. WB, C. . F course, the Young Women ' s Christian Association, if it is to be really successful, must have in it the real personality of all the girls in college. After all, the Association is just ourselves banded together to help each other in our every-day life, to make life richer and more enjoyable. We find enjoyment in discover- ing new topics to think about and to talk over, in looking farther than ourselves and in studj ' ing and helping people of other countries, in expressing our personalities by the carrying through of some responsi- bility, or the enlivening of life in general. Since Y. W. is meant for daily life, we Sweet Briar students de- cided that we should like our membership basis to be such that no girl would be excluded from the Association save by her own volition. Accordingly we adopted what is known as the Personal Basis of Mem- bership. Any girl may become an active, voting member provided slie states that she is in sympathy witli the fourfold aim of the Asso- ciation and that it is her piu ' pose to live as a true follower of the Lord Jesu-s Christ. She depends on her own conscience for her standing and not on whether or not she is a member of a Protestant Ev ngelical Church. We believe that since taking this step Y. W. has meant more to us and to more of us than ever before. Certainly we have faith in our ability to recognize a good thing and in showing an interest in the activities of the Y. W. C. A. the students are simply giving expression to the desire to do anything which is for the welfare of Sweet Briar. BRIAR PATCH Blur WiliV t F tliere is one thiiifj; whicli the college girls of the United States seem to value and enjoy it is the Y. W. C. A. siininier conference. Blue Ridge, N. C, is the meet- ing place for the student associations of the South Atlantic Field, and do you know — they say that it is the most beautiful of all the conference grounds in America If you have ever been to Blue Ridge you Avill readily sympathize with our ravings about the scenery. The conference comes just at the end of college and lasts ten days. You can get so much out of those days that when you look back over them and see what you have learned you feel like the line that wonders " how one small head could hold the things he knew. " In the morning there are classes, Bible classes and other kinds, dis- cussion groups and lectin-es. In between times you dash over to the book shop and squander your pennies on ice-cream cones. Oh, the food is a most attractive factor in Blue Ridge life! Afternoon is yours for recreation. All the " best outdoor sjjorts " may be indulged in at pleasiu-e. Among the number are swimming, hiking, tennis, and basket-ball. In the evening there is singing on the steps of Lee Hall. It is at these " sings, " when the twilight is closing in about j ou, that you feel simplj drowned in beauty. Then some verj great and famous person will give a talk and your evening is complete. This year that above-mentioned person may be Dr. Calkins. Now can you miss him? 100 -iS r A-w - BRIAR PATCH Seriously, if you go to Blue Ridge you will have something splendid to look back on and be glad for all the rest of your days, and no one can take away from you the pleasure of the experience. 101 WiNTEB Scenes ■♦-.♦,« jar.

With tlie assist- ance of INIr. Robei ' t Dempster, of New York, Paint and Patches at its first performance presented two one-act plays in wliich some of the new members ap- peared. In the first play, " Emily ' s Yonng Man, " Frances Simpson was especially good. Rebecca Janney and Madelon Shidler supported her well in minor parts. The second play was " Three Pills in a Bottle, " a fantasy and character play. Shelley Rouse as " Tony, " the little boy, and JNIargaret Mierke, as his mother, were the chief characters. The parts were well ren- dered and the costuming was excellent. The two plays, with one other, were taken to Lexington, where they were recei ' e(l with great applause by the students of V. M. I. and W. and L. The Ripjilers gave " INIice and INIen " on January l th, featiu ' ing old as well as new stars. Ada Tyler made an attractive hero and Alice Wells l)ids fair to become one of our leading actresses. Frances Simpson with her usual charm did much to make the play successful. AVith JNIr.

Janney and Mc- Kellar were " the two end men, and when we weren ' t convulsed at jNIcKellar, we were dying laughing at Janney. They " pulled off " a lot of new stunts that were even better than usual. We have never seen jSIae in such a pensive mood, but when the spirit moved her there wasn ' t an inch left still. The solo parts were all clever, but special mention must be given Lette Shoop. Perseverance and hard work were shown in her rendition of " Chu Chin Chow.

The audience was large, for word had gone forth of the high quality of the jjhiys, and every one was anxious to see them. " Fame and a Poet, " the first, was an unusual play with a sur- jjrising twist in it. INIiss JMorenus made a striking Fame, and tln-ew herself into her part with zest, while JNIr. Dempster had the true frenzied air of a jjoet. INIr. JNIcDougle renewed oin- previous pleasant impression of him by his realistic interjjretation of the poet ' s practical- minded friend. The scenery was very effective, due to JNIiss Craw- ford and her co-workers. In the second play, " Joint Owners in Spain, " the chief characters were Dr. Lummis, who acted in her usual efficient way, and Miss Young, who was excellent as the tearful old lady. Dr. Harley as the matron of the Old Ladies ' Home used her office manner to jierfection. The last play, " The ImiJertinence of the Creature, " featured JNIiss Gascoigne and Mr. Dempster.

Tlie eliniate and the character of the country are especially suited to hiking and riding almost the whole year. Every student takes an inter- est in some sport, one result of which is our high aver- age of health. As in most colleges, numerals, mono- grams, and sweaters are given in recognition of good work in ath- letics. Since the establishment of the point system these honors have been difficult to win, and are therefore highly valued. This year marks the beginning of a new era for Sweet Briar, as we have for the first time in om history jjlayed intercollegiate hockey and basket-ball. Lynchburg College and Westhampton both went down before our sturdy hockey team, and we expect our basket-ball squad to defeat its rivals with equal success. We look forward to more contests of the kind on field and lake days. Intercollegiate athletics build up college spirit and bring about a more broad-minded view- jioint in other matters. We have been very unfoi-tunate in losing Miss Gascoigne, our able instructor and friend, but our new coach, IMiss Carrington, has capably assumed her work. We have great hopes for the future ath- letics of Sweet Briar, 118 .i== - Elizabeth Taylor head of basket-ball BRIAR PATCH arsitp Basfett tall quatj forwards Ellen Wolf Louise Carper Katherine Klumph GUARDS Mary Chantler Lydia Purcell Marian Swannell CENTERS Bernice Blair Helen Mowry Frederka Bernhahd Elizabeth Taylor ©enior- opfjomore IBasket fiall ©quaD forwards Ellen Wolf Virginia Stanberrv Mary McLemore GUARDS Mary Chantler Fanny Ellsworth Lydia Purcell CENTERS Elizabeth Taylor P ' lorence Scovell Florence Ives 31unior=JFresl)man IBasktubnU qiiaD forwards Louise Carper LiLLiAS Shepherd Katherine Klumph Annie Ford GUARDS Margaret Nelson Marian Swannell centers BuRD Dickson Amey Smyth F ' rederica Bernhard 120 KlU l- ' lil ' Sll IA ' I ' l ' AM Sk.Mi IK -Si il ' IIOMORE TEAM Athletic Scenes Helen Taylor head of hockey ♦ ♦ BRIAR PATCH 19arsitp flockcp Ceam Elizabeth Taylor Center Forward Lydia Purcell Right Inside Maynette Rozelle (Capt.), Left Inside Harriette Brush Riglit Wing Fanny Ellsworth Left Wing Burd Dickson Center Half-Back Louisa Newkirk Right Half-Back Iadelon Shidler Left Half-Back Mary E.

In September, twenty new members were taken in from the three upper classes, and with the cooperation of the cliarter members a study of " The Russian Revo- lution, " starting liack in 1800 up through the present-day history, in- clusive of the phenomenae of Bolshevism, was carefully undertaken. The study for the rest of the year will include " The Monroe Doc- trine and the Great War " and " The Near East, " covering the Bal- kan problem. The club meets every two weeks, and the subject matter is pre- sented by four or Ave girls who follow a syllabus which is published by the Carnegie Foundation. Correlating with the subject matter which is being studied, eminent men are sent by the Carnegie Founda- tion to sjjeak on some phase of the work. Such men as Prof. Lind- say Rogers, of Harvard University; Prof. E. A. Horen, of Patna College, India, and Prof. E. A. Ross, of University of Wisconsin, were among the lecturers. Especially to those majoring in history and economics is this club fulfilling a purjjose which no other agency could, for it brings a first- hand knowledge of Political Science and International Relations. 141 BRIAR PATCH || international Inflations Clut) MARION D.

This production, " The Rainbow, " surpassed the ex- pectations of even the most sanguine admirers. Ellen " Jim " Hayes, one of oiu- celebrities, as " Xeil Sumner, " made an unusually good hero. INIartha Darden, al- ready familiar to us through " Quality Street, " was most attractive to us in the character of " Cynthia Sumner, " the charming daughter of " Neil. " Anne Shutte, whose histrionic ability had before been demon- strated on the Sweet Briar stage, made an effective villain, while Mar- garet JNIcVey, as " Edward Fellows, " the lawyer friend, and Grace MacBain, as " Neil ' s " wife, performed their roles with undoubted talent. In fact, everj ' member of the cast was a star in dramatics dur- ing her student days. The play was well presented and proved the cleverness of the Sweet Briar alumna?.

Two valiant meml)ers of the former class stole the improvised Freshman banner which was hung from the front of the Refectory, but had to replace it because of popular feeling. The consequence was enthusiastic singing of class songs l)y both sides, and to prevent a hand-to-hand fight, the Seniors started a college song. Finally the crowd dispersed, leaving the purple and gold of the Freshmen to adorn the Refectory, while the Sophomoi ' e banner, guarded by three of that hardy race, waved triumphantly over Gram- mer Hall. The exercises of the day went off very well. The under-classmen shivered in their white dresses, envying the Seniors, who for the first time appeared in their well-earned caps and gowns. The address was well worth listening to, and the chorus sang in a pleasing manner. After lunch the Freshmen, who had been convicted of breaking the varsity council rules, entertained the entire school and the visitors. Gladys Woodward played and sang to a select gathering in Gray Parlor. Elizabeth Massie was forced to neglect her dignity and dis- play her horsemanship, riding a broomstick. Dorene and Tom showed great ability as scrub-women, demonstrating on the Refectory steps, and Bonny Venable recited " Annabel Lee " to an appreciative audience. The four o ' clock dance in the gym was enjoyed by so many that the floor was crowded and the dance progressed very slowly. A big feature of the occasion was the big dance at night, led by Louise Brinkley and JNIax Barker. We were all very much pleased with our Memorial Day from beginning to end. 165 Founder ' s Day Scenes II BRIAR PATCH ©etJicatton To those huge queens to ichom every one else is sad, To those sad queens to whom every one else is sad.

But we can ' t decide whether to tabulate Jo as a physicist or a Red Cross worker. " Has the mail come yet? " 170 i « BRIAR PATCH Rhoda Allen Gentlemen and fair youths take warning! Never let this within your gaze or you will be lost. She is the ideal of beauty of over half the Southern colleges and Rhoda is what she appears to be, so if you desire to know her, just look at Rhoda. And one good-looking dress suit transforms lier into the most ravishing man imaginable. 171 II BRIAR PATCH Madeline Bigger Tliere may be times in her career when she cannot eat or cannot sleep, but never is there an hour when she does not have complete control of that heavy line. She is one of the original gym hounds, and her athletic pur- suits are confined to this brancli. But she stars in all branches of academic pursuits. 172 BRIAR PATCH RussE Blanks Some girls are pretty, some charming, some gifted with tlie power of leadersliip, some brilliant, some talented, some gen- erous, otliers lovable — but to find all these attributes packed into one girl without an ounce of con- ceit makes us think that the im- possible is possible. 173 II BRIAR PATCH Elizabeth Cole If you ever see a figure looking like the Uneeda Biscuit advertise- ment tramping off in the rain — that ' s Betty. We predict a busi- ness career. Have you seen that commercial looking desk in her room? And what good will her Greek do her then ? And the more we think of it, she ' d make a good scissors grinder. Did you see her in Three Pills in a Bottle? 174 BRIAR PATCH Catharine Cordes Kate Cordes was cut out for a diplomat ' s wife, but in the mean- time she is sta_ving at S. B. Pos- sessed of dignity and ease of man- ner, we feel that Kate can be counted on in the last lap. Slit- has a sense of humor and a happy faculty of being able to talk her- self out of any scrape. This is the girl who knows more about rice than fifty Chinamen. If you ever want to know who is the Prime Minister of Siam, what is the diameter of the moon, or any thing at all about rein in particu- lar, ask Kate. It doesn ' t make any difference whether she ever heard of it before, she ' ll tell you about it from A to Z. 175 • ♦ ♦ BRIAR PATCH Katharine Davis We haven ' t seen as nnieli of Kitty this year as we ' d like to. You see, she ' s had to devote so much of her time to V. P. I. X ' ersatility is her middle name. Tlie ease with which slie sings, |)aints, sews, plays the piano and violin, dances and gets her ath- k ' tic ])oints in one year is appal- ing. Slie can do any thing but wear red. 176 BRIAR PATCH Florence Dowden Slie tried to fool us at first about Biology being her specialty, but this year she gave herself away. The only requirement she makes for a roommate is that it be some one wiio is not frightened at tad-poles and other amphibia. Her room is a young aquarium. and she features Woods Hole in the summer. 177 II BRIAR PATCH Edith Durrell That most orderly of all peo- ple, Edith Durrell, spent her Senior year on that most dis- orderly of all places — second floor Gray — and survived it all witli equanimity. If you want to know statistics, just ask Edith, and to put it simply, she delves deeply into the mysteries of alchemy. 178 II BRIAR PATCH Fanny Ellsworth Fannie will have her little prac- tical joke! Her latest is about that unmanageable left foot which often leads her astray. The agency of Crutchfield ' s is a great honor that we are all striving to have next year. It brings so much publicity af- far as mail is con- cerned ! Fanny has a 600 kilo- watt smile that is irresistible, and that alone will get her any- where. 179 BRIAR PATCH Ruth Geer " Old Faitliful " up in Yellow- stone has been beaten at its own little game of reliability, for Ruth has the edge on it. In this struggle for knowledge, facts don ' t have a chance to slip away from Ruth. She holds on to them tight and when exams arrive she is never exposed to the entranc- ing aroma of the midnight oil. 180 i % %• II BRIAR PATCH Isabel Godwin " Je we sais pas " are the only French words that do not prop- erly belong to Isabel ' s vocabu- lary. She seems to have a hyp- notic influence over the academic departments and in Latin she is the eighth wonder. 181 II BRIAR PATCH Mattie Hammond " Where are you off to now? " But Mattie liasn ' t time to answer. Siie is bound for V. P. I., W. and L., V. M. I.. A. M. A., U. S. N. A., U. Va.. or wliat not! Wednes- day is her usual day at college, but sometimes she is a little late fjetting back and has to stay here Thursday. 182 % % BRIAR PATCH Florence Ives Beliold a student who never knows what it is to bluiT or to wait with straining ears for tlie blessed jang le of the period bell. " It is all perfectly simple. " That ' s the way Florence starts out to explain things to the Fresh- men in her Biology Lab., and by the time she gets through with them they realize it. 183 BRIAR PATCH Dorothy Job Dot they say pulls many " bones " — of course she has to do that in Biology Lab., and it must be force of habit. She leaves us often for little visits in the neigh- borhood and she thinks S. B. would be a wonderful place if it weren ' t for the academic side of it. 184 i % % « BRIAR PATCH ■ 1 Pll 1 Ir.

If Halle ever goes to California she will be in her element, for from her impersonation at the Senior party we know that she ' ll put the original " Bathing Beauties " to shame. " Oh, Marv Belle ! " 185 4 » i BRIAR PATCH Mary McLemore Tliis is tlie first Lette — tlie other half of the second one. How did tliey get their names? Ask them ! McLemore has three iiobbies — dancing, dancing, and dancing. But why speak of dancing? For she belongs in the 100 in regard to this. If slie ever xhould have to dance more tlian ten steps with the same man slie ' d tjiink slie was stuck. 186 1 f .■ . • BRIAR PATCH Martha Morgan Martha was not among the verdure of the campus when ' 21 began its career, but it hasn ' t taken her long to make a place for lierself at S. B. Her activi- ties have been many, but her prowess in athletics has been con- fined to walking. We hear she has a most remarkable diary and we expect to see it as a posthu- mous publication. 187 BRIAR PATCH Mary Belle McNally Even the j oiliest of us are seri- ous sometimes — especially in Chemistry when making chloro- form or ether. For a while the crowd in Mary Belle ' s room was a mystery, but drop in there some time and have her tell you a story and you ' ll swell the crowd. Mary Belle and her charming voice are always on hand to help you out. 188 BRIAR PATCH Gertrude Pauly There isn ' t a more attractive suite at Sweet Briar than Gert ' s. and it registers good taste and domestic ability. Gert is kept busy giving ideas to otliers not found in the House Beautiful. It must take a lot of time from her bridge. 189 BRIAR PATCH Katharine Pennewill Here ' s the girl wlio can twist tlie knots out of Latin as if tliere weren ' t any. But Latin isn ' t her chief pursuit — they say her stationery bill is equal to the en- dowment fund. When you ask lier for a dance in the gym she manages to give you tlie twenty- nintli. 190 BRIAR PATCH Maynette Rozelle What can Maynette be talking about, I wonder? It may be the affairs of Carson or such a seri- ous countenance may possibly mean she is thinking which one to have over to the gym next Satur- day. From the many duties of class and Y. W. she still finds time to answer the daily letters regularly. 191 BRIAR PATCH Shelley Rouse We ' re convinced of Shelley ' s dramatic ability, for when an active girl like Shell can imper- sonate an invalid boy it shows talent. We admit she has a strangle hold on literature and gets away with a high tempera- ture line with the professors. Shelly is one of the best of friends and the better we know her the better we like her. 192 BRIAR PATCH Florence Scovell If you ever see at the next dance you attend a tall young lady with a debutante slouch and the bored air of a superb super- sophisticated, don ' t look for her lorgnettes or expect a limpid Bostonian brogue — that ' s camou- flage. She has a brilliant and versatile line, and in order that she won ' t get out of practice up here, she gives the Freshmen the benefit of it. We know that she will carry away not only her sheepskin, but the love and friendship of those she leaves be- hind. 193 BRIAR PATCH Marion Shafer If you have ever nut a i irl witli more ability than Shafer you have one on the rest of us. Sliafe knows exactly what she is goinp; to do and then does it re- gardless of obstacles. From the amount of sewing she is doing and her absorbed attention in Houseliold Management Class we judge — but you have guessed tlie rest ! 194 BRIAR PATCH JMadelon Shidler An unfailing example of per- petual motion has been discovered but one thing is still unascertain- able — just what direction it will take next. Enthusiasm — that ' s Shidler. She is always busy and whatever she does she does in a hurry, but it is always done well. Her opinions are her strong point, and if you want to hear them go to Soc. II Class. 195 BRIAR PATCH Elizabeth Shoop Slioop is tlie prosecutor of dull care. She is invincible in re- jiartee and irresponsibility. It ' s the funny things she has said and her unfailing good humor that we will remember when we think of Lette. 196 ♦ ♦ ♦ % BRIAR PATCH Frances Simpson Don ' t think slie is worrying because she is quiet. Slie is mere- ly dreaming of that wonderful vacation — past and future. There is just one thing against Fran, but that is serious. She com- mitted the unpardonable crime of waiting until her Junior year to come to Sweet Briar. She is our most accomplished actress and if ten years from now you hear of a remarkable stage success — wake up ! — it ' s Fran Simpson. 197 BRIAR PATCH Margaret Spengel A cliarming light-liaired. light- hearted maiden but far removed from the class described as light headed. Posters come from under her brush as if by magic and she manages to keep a good class standing while her attention never leaves Ethel M. Dell. She startled us all the time she as- sumed the side curls of a Colonial ladv at dinner. 198 BRIAR PATCH Mary Taylor Tay is a typical Southcriifr. and no matter when or wliere you meet her she always has the same courteous attitude. Even getting locked out from breakfast doesn ' t ruffle her sunny disposition. It is needless to say, she is a favorite with every one. Who could have thought our dignified Y. W. presi- dent could have brought down tlic house singing " Whose Baby Arc You? " 199 BRIAR PATCH Katharine Taylor Beliold a Tea House Queen ! The question is — who will inherit Katy ' s permanent place there? We don ' t know for sure but she 7nitst have taken lessons in coach- ing plays from David Belasco and almost any play at S. B. has had her help. We went to her room to interview her for this write up, but, as usual, she wasn ' t there. That ' s her chronic condition ! 200 ; % ( » H BRIAR PATCH Miriam Thompson Perliaps she has a ;)asf or that dreamy look in Iier eyes may tell the story of a broken heart. If you ever want to find any of tlie Freshmen, call up to Mike ' s room first to save going to Grammer. BRIAR PATCH Florence Woelfel We know Miss Wliite hopes Florence won ' t give up tlie Tea House for Lent. And tliey say that the stock in the Southern R. R. rises during the months Florence is at college commut- ing between here and Lj-nchburg. Have you ever lieard Florence laugli ? You laughed too, didn ' t you? It ' s contagious. 202 BRIAR PATCH Ellen Wolf Strange and devious are the ways and activities of Ellen. No matter how well you know her you cannot prophesy just what she will do next. There is one thing certain about her, " Every picture tells a story, " and those two twinkl ing eyes are the index of a mischievous disposition. One of the things we seldom see at S. B. is a team without Ellen. She is particularly in her glory on Lake Day, but dabbles in all other sports. 203 BRIAR PATCH Jfrom 0m Jfrestman to noti)er Have you ever Stopped To consider Your daily Classmates Among the Freshmen ? How meek And unobtrusive Is Grace Merrick? What a huge Pow-wow About anything in general El Harned Is always Raising? How cold Distant And aloof Is Dorene Brown Toward the Seniors? What a wee Small Voice Has Harrell James? How Marnie Heningbaum (poor thing) Flunked All her subjects? How Shy And retiring Is Dot Meyers? How pale And thin From excessive Study Catherine Allison Is becoming? What a high Shrill Voice Tom Rose has? And how Daintily feminine 5he is ? How anxious We are To see " The Bud grown Into a Full Rose " Or The Debut of Miss Sparrow? What a Wild woman From tlie West Fanny Neal is ? 204 BRIAR PATCH Commuters Cafic j otice When you go to Lynchburg there are many things you must not miss. First, do not miss buying the yard of muslin for Helen, the hair nets for Mary, or the powder for Grace. Then never miss the " movies, " a chocolate stir at Craighill ' s, and, of course, do not miss your dinner. These things are all important, but there is one more that stands out above all the rest in huge red glaring letters in my mind. Do not miss the train home. Now that may not seem important, but listen to my sad story. We heard it whistle, flew down the hill to the station, stumbled down the steps and got tliere in time — to wave the last car out of sight. Calamity ! A flood causes great disaster, a fire devastates homes, an earthquake upsets everything, but missing that train ! We begged the trainmen to let us drive one of their engines out to college, or walk along the track and catch up with the train, but they sent us away. Cruel men ! Finally in despair and with mueli trembling we telephoned the college and asked them what we could do. " Hire an automobile, did you say. Miss Dix? Oh, yes, we never thouglit of that! " It was a lovely night, just made for automobiles, and I must confess I enjoyed that ride immensely, but I must stick to my subject as other great writers do — you must not miss tliat train.

Dear Bill: Well Bill this is the hest old plaee in the world although I have only been here a few months. I know you do not know I am here or you would of come to see me before this but how I knew you were at Charlottes ille a girl that rooms down the hall from me Effie Geer knows a boy there Pete Billows and Pete came to see her last Sat. night and I broke him in the gini and he said where did I live among other things and when I said Parker Pa. he said M iy there was a boy up at the house from Parker named Bill Ames and I said Bill Ames vhy I ' ve known him since early school days in the first grade, and so I am wi-iting to ask would you like to come down here some Sat. night maybe the next one. But please let me know so I can sign up for you with Xannie Fellsworth Pres. of S. G. A. that ' s Student Government Ass ' n and also so I can sort of spread it around that I am going to have a date. Until then Your old friend. MiGGiE Grahaal 212 BRIAR PATCH S. B. C, Va., Tuesday. Dear Bii-l: Well Bill probably you think it is funny for me to be writing so soon again and even l)efore you answer my letter but I was talking to some girls in our room last night and we were just talking along the way girls do. you know how it is and I happened to say that maybe I was going to have a boy from home down liere next Satur- day who was at the University and they all said how grand and we kept on talking you know Bill the way girls do. and do you think you eoidd liring four other boys with you The four girls are awfully good looking and I am sm-e your friends would like them a lot. Espe- cially Bill if they are Fraternity JNIen of course I know all your friends are. Please let me know about this as soon as possible. As always. Your friend, MiGGIE G. P. S. — Do your friends wear long trousers? I don ' t mean just regular jjants but the kind that wrinkle around your ankles sort of. you know how 1 mean. M. G. S. B. C, Va., Wednesday. Dear Bill: Well Bill I have not heard from you yet but I am not worried because I feel sure you are coming and also yoiu- four attractive friends but I just wanted to tell you that I had not forgotten I had invited you down and maylie you might feel embarassed or some- thing about coming the first time but it will be allright and we will make you all feel right at home so don ' t he afraid or anything. Yours mitil then, MiGGIE. P. S. — Can voii toddle? 213 BRIAR PATCH Thursday. Dear Bill: Well Bill I am not nervous or anything because I feel sure I will get a letter in the afternoon ' s mail but I just wanted to write and tell you I hadn ' t forgotten you were coming and if you wanted to you could take us to dinner at the Virginian in Lynchburg first if you wanted to because lots of girls do that and I have never been with a man altho I have had lots of chances but just never did. Maybe you could telejihone or something to let me know about this so I could be there on time and also the other girls. As ever, Your friend, MiGGIE. Friday. Mr. Ames: — There must be some mistake, I did not understand Mr. Bellows to say that you were the man who took care of the furnace in the Fraternity House and altho as you state you are from Parker Pa. which is my home town I feel sure you are not the Mr. William Ames that I went to school with altho you say you once cut off a lock of my hair when I sat in front of you which is verj ' improbable as I was not that kind of a girl, and so I wish you to please destroy the letters I have written to you thinking you were a different man. I am thinking of changing colleges in fact I have decided to and may leave any day. Besides I have had a wire from Washington and am going up there to-night as my aunt is quite sick. My four best girl friends are going with me. I hope to be bothered with you no more. Miss M. Graham. 214 II BRIAR PATCH On Monday I reported as a Candidate for The Hockey Team.

WHAT THE OLD GIRLS MISS ♦ ♦ II BRIAR PATCH 3 Spring Dap White clouds, a patch of blue. The rustle of a thousand trees, A robin bathing in the morning dew And singing with the breeze. Tlie laughter of a host of daffodils Beside a rippling brook, That gurgles joyously o ' er sunny hills And shady nook. Twilight and sunset sky Far off in the west, The echo of an owl ' s wild cry ; The world has gone to rest. Tlien silver stars a shining crescent moon And twinkling milky way A cobalt night that cannot pass too soon To make another day. 3 3lust IDearD Cfjat- Isabelle Godwin flunked all her courses.
