I . • . • I ♦ ♦ DEDICATION The 1957 Briar Patch proudly presents Miss Winnie, Miss Prior, and Helen Mac. They are the charming proprietors of our bookshop and the friends of all the students. They are always will- ing to suggest unusual gifts or to talk to the students, taking a personal interest in each girl. Miss Winifred Walker, Miss Gertrude Prior, and Miss Helen McMahon are an important part of the Sweet Briar family and represent our Sweet Briar way of life. We will not forget their warm personalities, their infectious laughter, their wholehearted en- thusiastic approach to life. Miss Winnie ' s African violets, Miss Prior ' s love of the outdoors, Helen Mac ' s energetic efforts to re- cruit camp counselors. Their sincere interest in others and their genuine affection for everyone is reflected in all they do. We are honored to count the Bookshop Trio high on the list of our dearest friends. We take great pride and great pleasure in dedicating the 1957 Briar Patch to Miss Winnie, Miss Prior, and Helen Mac. f ' :? f; ♦. ? . ALICE ' S WONDERLAND . . . Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and hav- ing nothing to do. She was considering in her own mind whether the pleasure of mak- ing a daisy chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking daisies, when suddenly a white rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her. There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, " Oh, dear! Oh, dear! I shall be too late! " ; but when the Rabbit actually took, a watch out of its waistcoat pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed acros.; her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat pocket or a watch to take out of it, and, burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it. ♦ »♦♦ ♦♦ I if. ■ : She found herself in a beautiful garden.

The students of Sweet Briar Col- lege will testify on behalf of the class of 1957. " We have shared their classes, their ideas, and their in- terests in graduate study, research, and teaching. We approve of their academic pursuits and their intellectual ambitions. We have enjoyed their originality, spirit, and organizational ability. We applaud their freshman pro- duction of " Gullible ' s Travels, " their May Day on a southern plantation, their Briar Patch, of " Sweet Briar, Then and Now, " and their senior presentation of " Grev Flannel Hearts. " Versatility and variety are represented by the class of ' 57. They combined tradition, by living in Gray, with in- novation, by living in William Bland Dew. A record group of thirteen studied in Europe during their junior year and brought back stimulating ideas. They were the first senior class to keep cars on campus all year, and we appreciate their mature acceptance of responsibility. This was a gay class. They enjoyed all phases of col- lege life, including Friday night dinners with the Raw- leys, step-singing on the Golden Stairs, coffee on the arcade after breakfast, and THE RING GAME (played frequently) . Once again, the herald calls for silence. The jury an- nounces its decision. The Class of 1957 has been tried and has been found to have successfully completed their college career. We send them into the world with a great deal of confidence and hope for the future, and with not a little sadness, knowing how much we will miss them next year. 27 • » t JAQUELIN AMBLER Montclair, New Jersey ' Jackie " . . . her dimples and her smile . . . pur- pose and attainment . . . warming exuberance . . .

We have gotten ads, taken pictures, written copy, and thought of ideas. Our majors, class and en- gagement rings, college week-ends. Watts School project, Christmas Bazaar, and all our other extra-curricular ac- tivities give us all up here on our mushrooms, smoking our hookahs, a sense of happv satisfaction.

SOPHOMORE CLASS " So she went on wondering more and more every step . . . and the egg got larger and larger and more and more human . . . when she had come close to it she saw that on the wall there sat the Sophomore Class itself . . . " Thev grinned collectively from ear to ear, as they leaned forward and offered Alice their hand, sure of their position on the wall and eager to tell of their year ' s adventures. In the fall, they said, they kept their pre- carious seats on their wall only through abolishing anv suggestion of a Slump and defending their honor in a battle at the hitching post against the Freshman. Orig- inality at the Bazaar gave them a steadier balance, and when the Q.V.s were announced and the Bum Chums tapped, even the wild excitement of these climaxes did not precipitate the historic fall. May Day was the grand climax, however, and the Sophomore Class rested on their laurels, using them to cushion the seat of the hard brick. They looked quite sad as they said good-bye to Alice and told her that they had picked their majors and had to leave their position. They cheered up when Alice assured them that they would not forget their Sophomore year, for this Humpty Dumptv had no " great fall " but made for itself a solid place on the wall and at Sweet Briar.

The gymnasium is used for basketball, dance, volleyball, ping pong, badminton, and squash. The fun of an overnight at the cabin on Paul ' s Mountain or an afternoon at the lake and the boathouse invites us to join in these activities. The principles of fair play and team cooperation, together with an active spirit of competition, exist in this phase of our life — as they do in all others. Inter-class competition, between the Odds consisting of the Juniors and Freshmen and the Ends consisting of the Seniors and Sophomores, is continued throughout the year in all sports. The gymnasium resounds to the laughter and cheers of those participating in Rally Night in February. Crowds gather at the Boathouse in May to enjoy Gala Night — a night to sing, to cheer for one ' s class float, and to watch the burning Tau Phi symbol illuminate the sky. Rally Night and Gala Night are shared by faculty and students. Awards, seals, medals, and blazers are given out at these times by the Executive Committee of the Association to those students who possess skill and exhibit responsibility, en- thusiasm, and sportsmanship in athletics. Lake Day with its swimming and boating competition lures students to enjoy the warm spring weather. The officers of the Association and the heads of sports give their energies to provide the necessary systems, and through the students ' integrated effort these systems find their function together with an expression of beauty, skill, and pleasure.

There is a high degree of spirit and participation in intramural competition. Students taking hockey for credit play in a series of games and several Odd-End games are played. The enthusiasm in the class games was high with the class of ' 59 emerging victorious. The Varsity and Reserve had a successful season with their matches against Hollins, Westhampton, Richmond, Roanoke, and Chatham Hall. The Blue Ridge Tournament was held at Sweet Briar and twelve girls were selected to play in the Southeast Tournament at Wilmington, Delaware. There were five from Sweet Briar, Ruth Fernley, Penny Meighan, Mary Blair Scott, Alibel Wood, and Angela Geraci, one of our coaches who plaved in the National Tournament at Philadelphia. Miss Geraci was selected as a member of the United States Team.

The Riding Club began its program of activities in September. New and old talent appeared for the Bedford Horseshow and the Horsemanship Classes. Mr. Clayton E. Bailey guided schooling sessions which included the evalua- tion of horses and Saturday morning programs. Hunter trials, cross-country and trail rides were frequent events. A Point-to-Point attracted outside competition as well as many spectators. Captain Vladimir S. Littauer conducted the annual clinic in February with the theme " Milestones in Schooling. " Longer drags were initiated in the twice-a-week hunts. New members were asked to join, adding interest and enthusiasm to the hunt. A Cross-Country Endurance Test over a two mile course proved the necessity for riders and mounts to be in good condition. A Horseshow Team was chosen early in the Spring to represent the college in Shows in the Lynchburg and Amherst areas. The Lewis and Lloyd Howard Trophies were presented at the annual Sweet Briar Show. Horsemanship Classes later in the season offered the Blackwell Challenge Trophy to the Advanced Class and the " 52 " Cup to the freshman rider who exhibited the most improvement during the year.

There are two divisions of the Dance Club: Tanz Zirkel is for interested beginners, and Dance Group includes more advanced members who combine techniques and creativity in their compe- titions. The Dance Club holds tryouts several times a year; anyone interested in belonging to Tanz Zirkel is urged to try out, and promotions to Dance Group are made as the dancers improve. After auditions, the new members are announced at fall and spring picnics. A demonstration in November illustrated a regular class for the freshmen. A spring recital, given in March, pre- sented the talents of the members in expression, in technique, and in choreography. The dance schedule also included visiting performers and programs off campus. The Club was invited to see per- formances and to take master lessons from artists appearing under the auspices of the Richmond Dance Society; the dancers also attended the Fine Arts Festival at the Women ' s College of North Carolina. 4 • ♦ ♦ ♦ TENNIS Tennis is a popular sport at Sweet Briar in the fall and spring seasons. There are six courts on campus which are available for matches or for informal games. This year there were faculty-student matches, and an Odd-End school tournament took place in the fall. Varsity and reserve teams are chosen to play matches with Westhampton, William and Mary, Randolph-Macon, Lynchburg College, and Bridgewater. The match against Hollins is played on the courts at The Homestead in Hot Springs. A tennis coach comes to Sweet Briar in the spring to conduct a clinic for the tennis classes. hint Ron, left to right: Schwab, Coxe (Head), Woods, D. Second Ron: Winslett, Miller, L., Ho, Cowen.

The rustic boathousc with its fireplace and informal atmosphere provides a place for parties and relaxation throughout the year. The lake becomes a festival scene of class contests and student rivalry during Lake Day and Gala Night. THE CABIN " The call of the fire, " campfire songs, and toasted marsh- mallows — the students think of these and they come to the cabin. A short hike takes us to the contentment of woodsy surroundings, relaxation, and the " simple life.

" STUDENT EXECUTIVE BOARD As a result of the student petition submitted to the faculty in 1906, Sweet Briar College students were granted the privilege of self-government. Since then the Student Government has been a constantly growing and active part of our college. We, the students, have been given more and more individual responsibility; our Student Government As- sociation has emerged as a reflection of our ability to accept these responsibilities. The powers of the Association are vested in three capacities: legislative, executive, and judicial. The legislative powers are vested in the Association as a whole, which has jurisdiction over all regulations falling within the student sphere of authorirty. The executive powers are vested in the Executive Board which makes and interprets rules, con- ducts polls and elections, and coordinates campus activities. Faculty and students are brought together by College Council meetings in both executive and judicial capacities. The main purpose of the Executive Board stems from the desire to make the whole system of campus life more meaningful and smoothly operative. In its 1956-57 program, the Executive Board has fulfilled this purpose by stream- lining the nomination systems, organizing a workable receptionist duty plan, sponsoring weekly faculty-student din- ners in the refectory, and by attempting to increase student awareness of the necessity of accepting individual responsi- bility both here and in post-college years.

Martin, Chao. Not Pictured: Godwin. JUDICIAL BOARD The judicial powers of the Student Government Association are vested in the Judicial Board which safeguards the Honor System on which the Association is founded. The aim of the Judicial Board is to interpret the Honor System, emphasizing not only the system but the way of life embodied in it. The Judicial Board renews its purposes each year. It operates through an unchanging policy which emphasizes " more honor and less system. " Judic educates the individual and the community in an understanding of the reasons behind the rules as well as the rules themselves. Penalties are " reminders " and are assigned after careful study of each individual case. While the Executive Council emphasizes the overall spirit of the Association, the Judicial Board applies this spirit practically by way of the regulations. The Honor System applies to every phase of college life. The most concrete ex- pression of our obligations in maintaining a high standard of honor is embodied in the honor pledge signed by every student: " I pledge upon my honor to assume individual responsibility for the honor system of Sweet Briar. In accepting this responsibility I pledge my best effort to make the highest ideal of honor prevail at Sweet Briar; I promise to report myself for any of my infractions of the Sweet Briar regulations, and to ask others to report themselves for any of their infractions if I am not certain that they have done so.

ORIENTATION COMMITTEE The Sweet Briar Y.W.C.A. endeavors to emphasize the importance of religion in daily life and to achieve the goal of the national Y.W.C.A., " To unite in the desire to realize full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God. " All students receive membership in this organization and are encouraged to join together in programs of wor- ship and service. The campus and community program of the Y.W.C.A. is centered on problems of particular concern to students as responsible Christian members of the community. Each class supervises a project in the underprivileged schools in the Amherst area. The four Discussion Groups— World-Relatedness, Christian Faith and Heritage, Personal and Cam- pus Life, and Social Responsibility — meet once a month to discuss problems of common interest; they seek in these discussions to apply Christianity to all phases of life. Members of the Orientation Committee welcome new and for- eign students and help to guide them through the first weeks and months of life at Sweet Briar. Sunday evening ves- pers and weekly dorm devotionals, which are conducted by students, arc a meaningful part of our college life; the three-day Annual Religious Conference is a valuable experience in Christian development. 4 4 4 TAU PHI Tau Phi is an upperclass honorary society, founded for the purpose of uniting the highest ideals of the academic tradition with those of Sweet Briar life. The members believe that the stimulation that comes with learning is more meaningful through sharing; thus, besides encouraging interests in the various lec- tures and concerts throughout the year, the club endeavors to bring interesting and controversial ques- tions to the college through faculty-student discussions, weekly readings for the whole community, and book reviews in the newspaper. Tau Phi ' s other activities include packing baskets at Christmas for the farm help and collecting and sending books to Asian countries.

They are chosen for their interest and participation in campus activities and de- vote much time and energy to community projects throughout the year. They sponsor an auction in the fall during the Campus Chest drive, aid the Student Development Fund, collect clothes at Christmas to send to Europe, and in the spring present their annual fashion show. The peak of their friendly rivalry with the Tau Phis is reached on the morning of May Day in the traditional game of Softball between the two groups. 122 Q. V. The QA ' . ' s arc members of the sophomore class, elected by secret ballot by their class in the fall. Their purpose is twofold: they encourage enthusiasm in all phases of college life so that each sophomore will look forward with anticipation to her remaining years at Sweet Briar and they make each individual aware of her responsibility to participate in class activities not only in the sophomore year but throughout her college ca- reer. The names of the members of the Q.V. are not announced until spring step-singing because it is felt that they can work far more effectively if they work quietly. first Ron. left to right: Mackall, G.

BUM CHUMS " Hallelujah I ' m a Bum! " announces the coming of the Notorious Ten through the school year as this spirited group of juniors embarks on various projects for the benefit and fun of the community. They are tapped just after spring step-singing of their sophomore year; the following September they plunge into their duties as monitors for the March of Dimes in Amherst, sponsors of the Blood-mobile, supporters an- nually of a charitable project, and cleaners of Daisy ' s Den. Added attractions are the Holiday Inns put on at Christmas and in the spring — faculty shows in miniature, with ice cream and cokes — designed to show the world that every professor has his bright side. Their pure fun and functionless function is their search for the identity of the year ' s Q.V. ' s which adds much spice to campus life. Each year they prove themselves to be an indispensable part of the " Sweet Briar family. " PAINT AND PATCHES The aim of Paint and Patches since its establishment has been for the students to create and to develop an active interest in all fields of drama. The basis of this aim is " to entertain and to educate " Sweet Briar audiences by further- ing the creativity and theatrical knowledge of the students working on plays, therefore hoping each year to develop a better and more universal understanding of dramatic art. Paint and Patches this year presented a variety of plays, each representing a different genre of drama. In the fall Henrik Ibsen ' s realistic and intense Hcdda Gabler proved a very successful venture. As if winter couldn ' t give shivers enough during those damp, cold days, an unusual melodrama, Murder Without Men, added a touch of excitement and color to the long winter months. As a final presentation, Paint and Patches closed the season with the witty and enduring Gilbert and Sullivan musical, Iolanthc. As always, no dramatic production could be possible without the artistic function of the director. Dr. Freeman ' s wide capabilities in both the technical and acting fields made each performance a polished and " alive " realization of the aim of the Dramatic Club at Sweet Briar.

AINTS AND ASSES The familiar refrain, " Aints and Asses, lovely lasses, not one dud, " symbolizes gaiety and humor at Sweet Briar. With sparkling wit and glowing humor, these twenty-one young lovelies satirize any and all phases of community life. Unfettered by conventions of propriety, they stage original take-offs of dramatic productions, the Freshman Fashion Show, and the Mav Court. Their " Sweat Brow Blues " keeps the morale of students high during exams as does their buffoonery during the rest of the year. The Aints and Asses are especially well known in the spring by the sound of their whistles as they strive to keep wanderers off the new grass. This merry clan holds a unique place at Sweet Briar because it was for their " poisonality that " they " was picked. " 125 SOCIAL COMMITTEE When the lights begin to blink and you hear the familiar words, " It ' s time to tell your date goodnight, " you know the Social Committee is on the job. Working in conjunction with the Dean ' s Office and the Ex- ecutive Council, this committee is active not only on the weekends but throughout the week, reminding Sweet Briar girls of their responsibility to uphold the Sweet Briar standards of dress and demeanor. These active lasses plan and put on the Midwinter ' s Dance and act as the floor committee for all Sweet Briar dances. First Row, left to right: Lawson, Raines, Weed, Sykes, M. L. Smith.

The Personnel and Vocational Guidance committee, composed of a small group of students and faculty, ad- vises Sweet Briar students about post-graduation and summer job opportunities. The committee gives panels on summer jobs and teaching and arranges for speakers to visit the campus to discuss career openings and advantages. The student members of the group tabulate student interests and publicize and make available information in these fields. The extensive literature on graduate schools and job possibilities collected and filed by this committee is readily accessible to all students. VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE COMMITTEE PHI BETA KAPPA In 1949 Sweet Briar College was granted by the Phi Beta Kappa Society a charter for the Theta chapter of Virginia. Each year the chapter chooses a small number of seniors who have attained a high excellence in scholastic and cultural pursuits. Membership rarely exceeds ten percent of the senior class and may not sur- pass fifteen percent. The chapter may also elect juniors of exceptional ability. On February 26, Dr. Lily Ross Taylor, Dean Emeritus of Latin at Bryn Mawr College, delivered the 1957 Phi Beta Kappa Lecture. Best, Matheson, Pinckney, Donnan, Weitzel, McBurney.

The Curriculum Committee invites students to bring questions, suggestions, and constructive criticism with regard to the curriculum. It serves as an intermediary between faculty and students on such matters as major subjects, the Honors Plan of study, or group requirements. The committee is composed of stu- dent representatives from each of the groups of study and from the sophomore and freshman classes. Its job is to gather facts about the curriculum and methods of instruction at Sweet Briar and to give valid answers to questions that arise concerning these. CURRICULUM COMMITTEE 127 f.-f t » ' f. ART AND MUSIC CLUB The purpose of the Art and Music Club is to stimulate and to promote interest in art and music in the Sweet Briar Community. The club sponsors films, exhibitions, lectures, and art demonstrations for the ben- efit of the community. Each individual member has the opportunity to work on projects which the group enjoys as a whole. The Club partly owns the large lending library of picture collections used by the col- lege community. Included in the program for this year was a lecture entitled " Schweitzer as Theologian, Musician and Philosopher " , given by Miss Margaret Deneke, a prominent lecturer and concert artist who worked with Dr. Schweitzer in Africa.

THE CHOIR The Sweet Briar Choir is an organization which offers instruction in group singing and acquaints its members with sacred and secular choral music. The Choir encourages its members to become familiar with varieties of sacred music including plain song, chants, and oratorios. Election to the Choir is considered a distinct honor. The Choir, under the direction of Mr. Edmund Allison, has presented an unusual selection of works throughout the year. The Choir provides music for each Sunday service and participated in the Founders ' Day program in the fall. The winter season included two joint presentations of the Christmas portions of the Messiah with the Washington and Lee Glee Club at Sweet Briar and at Lexington. The annual Christmas Carol Service featured the " Magnificat " bv Dufay. The Choir joined with Paint and Patches in the spring to present Gilbert and Sullivan ' s lolanthe. This was followed by a tour with the University of Virginia Glee Club. The Baccalaureate Service brought the vear ' s activities to a close. 129 t t » : f . WORLD AFFAIRS CLUB This organization provides a fine soap box from which students as well as faculty and guest speakers may air their ideas on the world situation to a well-informed and interested group.

This informal singing group was started several years ago by a group of nine seniors who enjoyed sing- ing together. They have since become a standing tradition at Sweet Briar, providing entertainment at school parties and dinners and at occasional Lynchburg events. The success of any occasion is assured with the help of this lively group and their varied repertoire. SWEET TONES CAMPUS CHEST COMMITTEE This faculty-student organization, the only large charity solicitation group on campus, sponsors a Funds Drive each year within the college community. The committee supervises and allocates the donations ac- cording to the wishes of each contributor to local, national, and international organizations. Part of the funds goes toward scholarships to bring at least two foreign students to Sweet Briar each year. This drive makes it convenient for every student to give as much as she likes to causes that seem worthwhile to her. First Ron. left to right: Jamison, Whitson, Ritler, Chairman; Benton.

It is published each spring and is sent to all incoming students as well as the upperclassmen to familiarize them with Sweet Briar ' s honor system, regulations, organizations, and activities. The Key is an informal presentation of college life. Its main emphasis is upon traditions, extracurricular activities, and the lighter side of campus living. It tries in this way to express concretely the intangible " Sweet Briar spirit.

The Sweet Briar News is a medium for acquainting the community and friends of the college with cam- pus events, for integrating student-faculty views, and for bringing the college community in touch with hap- penings of local and national interests. Because of increased national and local advertising, this year the News has increased to six pages every week, bringing a more complete coverage of events of interest and more feature articles, particularly on campus traditions. The News, in trying to take a more active part in campus lite, sponsored a discussion on Integration and States ' Rights early in the year based on the Desegregation resolution passed at the National Students Congress in August. 1956. In November the News sponsored a Mock Presidential Election, which showed Sweet Briar students to be good judges: Eisenhower was elected. The Mens is the result of week-long toil. Assignments are distributed Tuesday and are due on Sunday nights. Pages are made up Monday nights. Page proofs are checked with the printer on Tuesday after- noons and on Wednesday the News is received by every student and subscriber. Purely a student enter- prise, Nen - staff jobs range from photography and copy reading to circulation and advertising to writing and editing. ♦ 4 % THE BRIAR JANET WYNN Editor The Brair Patch is the annual project of the Junior Class. Each member participates in the pro- duction of this year book, which is designed to portray life at Sweet Briar, its traditions, interests, and activities. This year the Briar Patch presents Alice ' s Wonderland. We hope to emphasize the intangible meanings and experiences that each student finds in her Wonderland by depicting the Sweet Briar scene as a fantasy. Alice is the alumna, the student, the prospective observer; Alice is a part of Sweet Briar. She will always be found on our campus for A £} ( FIRST ROW, from left to right: Dr. Lawrence G.

The Briar Patch of 1957 started as a dream and verv slowly became a reality. The staff began early to contact advertisers and to set up money raising campaigns. The photographer and his sub- jects thought we were jinxed as we had pictures re- taken three times. All at once it was possible to collect pictures and copy, to meet deadlines, to find our bank account full and settled. The staff of this year book fondly and finally presents the Briar Patch to the class of 1957. FIRST ROW, from left to right: Taylor, A., Schuster, Ogden, Zick, Sykes, Johnson, M., Carpenter, R., Elv.

Lastly, she pictured to herself how a little girl of hers would, in the after- time, be herself a grown woman; and how she would keep, through all her riper years, the simpler and loving heart of her childhood; and how she would gather about her other little children, and make their eyes bright and eager with many strange tales and dreams of Wonderland of long ago; and how she would feel with all their simple sorrows, and find pleasure in all their simple joys, remembering her own child life, and the happy days. i .. •t t ♦ ' •♦♦■♦♦ STUDENT DIRECTORY v% ; Alexander, Jean Sears Bernardsville, N.
