Latest Portrait of Our
DR. J. L. JARMAN
Painted by Julia Mahood
ulia Mahood, a graduate of our Col-
lege, comes from a family of artists. Her
mother, grandmother, a brother, and two
sisters have been recognized for their talent
in this field. She has done some of the best
portraits in our College. Among them are
Dr. Thomas D. Eason, Miss Estelle Smithey, and Miss Martha Coulling.
Her latest addition is possibly her masterpiece, namely, the above one of
Dr. J. L. Jarman. She presented it at commencement, June 5, 1944, and it
now hangs over the mantel in the Reception Hall. The Lynchburg Chap-
ter, represented by their president, Helen Costan, presented the beautiful
frame at the same time. The following is Julia's presentation speech:
"Dr. Jarman, when I was in College here, I wished that my Mother
could paint your portrait, and later on I wanted to paint it myself, not a
portrait of the serious college president but the Dr. Jarman that I knew,
with the humor and understanding that endears you to us all. A year ago I
heard you wish that one of your portraits had a twinkle in the eye, and so
I asked you to pose for me. And now, as a token of my deep regard for you
and in appreciation of all my Alma Mater has meant to me, I wish to
present this portrait, which I painted."
Alumnae President's Letter
After a year has passed, it is an appropriate time to take stock in our efforts, and to
look forward with a great desire for the success of our future.
First, I want to praise all of you who have learned that being actively engaged in
work has proven the greatest blessing during the past year. You have attended to your
duties assiduously, tried to be useful, instead of brooding too much over war-time troubles.
You are a better citizen than you have ever been before.
At the request of our beloved Dr. Jarman, we have carried on the work of the Alum-
nae Association in the usual manner, holding semi-annual meetings of the Executive
Board in May and October and celebrating the Sixtieth Birthday of our College on
Founders Day in March. The attendance and enthusiasm at these meetings encouraged
your officers. Everyone seemed refreshed spiritually, enjoying the contact with the stu-
dents, greeting old friends, admiring the beautiful surroundings. The hospitality shown
visiting Alumnae at Farmville by members of the Faculty, Home Department and Stu-
dent body, the interest and support of the Executive Board of which Dr. Jarman is such
an active, interested member, the efficiency of our capable secretary, Mrs. Coyner, in
the performance of her various duties, and the willingness of the Alumnae, at large, to
co-operate have made the past year a very pleasant, happy one for your President.
For the coming year, we want the continued support, that only you can give. We
need you. The plan now, which has been so successful in other places is to ask Alum-
nae to make contributions instead of just paying dues. Because of the fact that only
one-half of the usual sum was contributed last year, we were inclined to believe that you
considered Founders Day the end of the Fiscal Year, and since the Bulletin, which is al-
ways a reminder, was late in being published, you did not consider that you had time to
send your contribution. It is gladly received at the Alumnae Office any time during the
In your chapter work, do not forget that scholarship and special gifts are more im-
portant than ever in the teacher training program of Farmville State Teachers College.
As a helpful, immediate service, please send a revised list of local Alumnae, with changed
names and addresses, together with your community telephone book, to the Alumnae
Office. We want the Bulletin to reach every one of you.
In your community, I am sure that you are helping to promote better education in
Virginia, as real loyal Alumnae should. In our present emergency many hundreds are
serving their country by returning to the teaching profession as a patriotic duty. There
is such a need for trained teachers that I am taking this opportunity to urge many more
of you to serve in this particular field for which you are so admirably fitted.
With the best of wishes for success in your undertakings, and much appreciation of
your inspiration and encouragement to me, I am

Founder's Day 1944
r I THOSE who were responsible for Founders Day on March 4, 1944, had many fears
-*- about the success of the day, for in addition to war-time restrictions on travel and on
food, Dr. Jarman went down with the flu, and the gray morning developed into a misty
rain. By twelve o'clock, the hour for a Chapel program by students and alumnae, a
change had come in the weather and in our spirits, for the halls were teeming with
Alumnae who had come from far and near to celebrate the decennial anniversary of
their graduation. The Rotunda and reception rooms were filled with animated scenes
of reunion as the old girls arrived. When the hour struck for assembly, the crowd be-
gan to move toward the auditorium. Those who had not met for ten, twenty, thirty,
forty or fifty years suspended their informal activities temporarily to take part in the
Student-Alumnae program scheduled for the hour.
The auditorium was full and never has there been more rapt attention paid by the
student body than was in evidence throughout the exercises that day. The Alumnae
president, Louise Ford Waller, presided in her usual gracious manner. Two highlights
of the occasion were the presentation of the cup as an award for the largest percentage
of class attendance, and the address made by Phyllis Pedigo, one of Farmville's out-
standing graduates, who has been serving with the Red Cross in the South Pacific area
in this war.
The Class of 1894 won the Jarman attendance award. Ten of the thirteen living
members of their class answered to the roll call. Mrs. R. L. (Maude Pollard) Turman
of Atlanta, Georgia, received the cup, and in a most delightful way, she challenged any
class present to take it from the Class of 1894. This remarkable class has kept up corre-
spondence through the years, and is now compiling a history of its corporate self, with
individual sidelights. The Class of '94 put new life into the faculty, and it inspired the
student body with admiration for ten people who have learned the art of joyous living,
and who face the coming years with fortitude and with a smile. Students saw in this
group ideals of the college embodied in flesh. While Phyllis Pedigo spoke of her work
with the men who are dying that we may live, there was a reverent audience listening.
According to magazine accounts, the boys "Over-There" had dubbed her "Merrylegs",
but to us she was the spirit of Florence Nightingale. As she talked to us about her work,
we realized that her sense of humor and her cheer had saved many a depressed soul from
ennui and even from collapse and despair. The College is proud of a heroine like her,
and we thank the Red Cross for sending Phyllis back to her Alma Mater on its sixtieth
birthday, with a message so stirring.
Many messages of felicitation from Alumnae Chapters, and from individuals were re-
ceived that day, and several gifts came as an expression of loyalty and devotion. The
December, 1944 3
Class of 1894 gave a beautiful landscape painting for the Alumnae office; the 1904 class
gave a War Bond; Maria Bristow of the 1914 class made a gift to the Alumnae Fund in
memory of her father, Mr. R. C. Bristow, Business Manager of the College for a num-
ber of years; the Class of 1934, sponsored by Mary Berkeley Nelson presented to the
Alumnae Fund a substantial money gift; Kate Perry of Culpeper gave two old prints for
Longwood; the Student Body made a very worth-while contribution to the Founders
Day Fund which was appreciated by Dr. Jarman and the Alumnae.
Dr. Simkins made a much appreciated contribution in the form of a booklet con-
taining a brief historic sketch of each person whose portrait has been hung in the Col-
lege. This book has been placed in the College Library.
Luncheon was served in the Tea Room. One hundred fifteen were present; the re-
sponses from the Reunion Classes gave evidence of a Farmville spirit that lives on, no
matter how distance and years separate Alumnae from each other and from their Alma
The following responded for their Classes:
1894— Maude Pollard Turman 1919— Catherine Riddle
1904 — Lucy Stearnes 1924 — Louise Bland Morgan
1914 — Alice Dadmun Murphy 1934 — Mary Berkeley Nelson
At the lovely formal six o'clock dinner in the College dining hall, the reunion classes
were seated together again, and did the reminiscing continue? The College orchestra,
under the direction of Miss Lisabeth Purdom, furnished enjoyable dinner music.
At 8 P. M. the College Dramatic Club, under the direction of Miss Leola Wheeler,
presented "The Cradle Song" by Sierra. The cast was well chosen and the acting was
excellent. The Alumnae were very grateful to our talented director, Miss Wheeler, for
a most happy ending to a perfect day.

IN spite of war, high water and blizzards, Class Reunions continue most successful on
Founders Day. Old S.T.C. girls must get together at least once in ten years. May
the war be over by next March 10, 1945, and the Classes of 1895, 1905, 1915, 1920,
1925 and 1935 come back in great numbers. You will have to get up early in the morn-
ing to get ahead of the "Four" Classes who came back last year. Which of the "Five"
Classes will win the Jarman Cup for the largest percentage of attendance in 1945?
Dear Girls of 1885,
I was not a member of this first grad-
uating class. The three young ladies who
had this honor have gone on, but I was
a student here then and I have lived here
ever since, hence I was asked to remind
you that March 10, 1945, brings us to the
sixtieth anniversary of this first graduating
class of the "Normal School." We of that
time were the pioneers in this new era of
education for girls in old Virginia. A
teacher-training institution was something
new not only in Virginia but in the South.
Dr. Ruffner, the first president, was a man
of great vision, and he secured the minds
of some very fine teachers to help him in
this new venture. Some of you who have
never been back should make a special
effort to be here this time. It will be inter-
esting to talk over old times, to recall the
teaching methods used on us, and to see
the great changes. We had no practice
school then, but each one of us was re-
quired to teach our own class in the pres-
ence of the teacher. Embarrassing and
hard work, wasn't it? Was there ever any-
one who could draw such perfect maps on
the board as Miss Bush? Do you remem-
ber those mental arithmetic rules which
Miss Lee taught us? They should be in
Come back and see how our small be-
ginning has grown into a big Teachers
College, drawing girls like a magnet from
many states and foreign countries.

Dear Girls of 1895,
Before me is a list of our graduating
class at dear old Farmville. I note with
regret that five of our number have passed
away. The other twenty are scattered over
Virginia and nearby states.
As I read your names I vividly recall
every one of you — just how you wore your
hair, how you talked and laughed. Many
experiences in which numbers of you were
involved came to my mind; especially did
I remember that last proud night when we
sat on the platform in our simple home-
made white dresses and held out nervous
hands for diplomas from dear Dr. Cun-
ningham. Every one of us cried and he
did too — remember?
Now we graduates of 1895 have a spe-
cial invitation to be guests of our College
on Founders Day, March 10, 1945 — fifty
years later. Come on and let's go every
one of us! Let's show those girls of 1945
that we aren't old ladies yet!
Think how much fun we will have re-
calling our experiences with "Lady Por-
tia", as we lovingly called Mrs. Morrison;
with Miss Sarah who dosed us on the least
provocation; with Misses Coulling, Mapp,
Rice, Vicroy, Reynolds, Stone, Littleton
and all the others who put up with such
a happy-go-lucky bunch. Of course we
studied hard and through all these years
we have been grateful for what Farmville
did for us.
Remember, girls, we should be the top-
notchers this year! Meet me one-hundred
per cent strong at Farmville on Founders

Dear February '95 Class,
Do not our minds and hearts register
something of the surprise and unreality
voiced in the first verse of our Class Song?

It surely cannot be,
That we have graduated been" for fifty
long golden years of checkered light and
To those who are left of the sweet six-
teen, silly sixteen, sensible sixteen, or what
have you, I urge you to let us meet at
Farmville on next Founders Day, thereby
showing our appreciation of all the school
has meant to us, and also our appreciation
of the fine work and service of the College
to our beloved Virginia thro' the years,
under the marvelous leadership of Dr.
Don't you think, too, if we go back
together we may perchance catch anew

whom we have loved long since and lost

Dear Classmates of June 1905,
On Saturday, March tenth, 1945,
Founders Day will be observed at Farm-
ville and Dr. Jarman is inviting the Class
of 1905 to return as special guests of our
Alma Mater. Forty years since we, a Class
of forty-two members, left the dear old
State Female Normal School! We, the
first Class to receive our diplomas in the
Do you remember the morning of June
seventh, our last time together as a Class,
when we sang our "Farewell Song"?
"Now o'er our school days
Gently falls the curtain low
And we must leave you
In the world to go;
But with strongest efforts
We will try our best to prove
Worthy Daughters ever
Of the School we love."
Shall we not make a great effort to
come to this reunion and prove that we
have been worthy daughters? Many
changes and experiences have come into
our lives over the years, so do come back
to the old School to reminisce. For those
who find it impossible to be there, how
about sending us a sketch of your lives
Our Alma Mater has made rapid prog-
ress, so great changes will greet us there,
but best of all will be the warm welcome
from our honorary member, Miss Coul-
ling, and our friend, Dr. Jarman.
Edith Dickey Morris,
Class of 1915
Dear Girls :
I really can't believe that it has been
thirty years since we all were graduated.
Time flies and I do hope, for each of you,
that you have enjoyed as much of those
years as I have.
It really would be wonderful if a goodly
number of our 1915 Class would make an
extra effort to meet this coming March
for Founder's Day.
I understand there have been many at-
tractive additions to our school plant, so
we must go back and take them' all in.
Just to see Dr. Jarman and the Campus
would be enough compensation tor us to
make some sacrifice to attend.
In the past we have all traveled many
miles, seen and done many things, but I
don't think anything clings in our mem-
ories as those years at school. What better
than for each of us to go back Founder's
Day and have a real "get-together", and
hear about some of the roads each of us
has traveled and the sights we have seen
along the way. This is such a wonderful
opportunity to "kill two birds with one
stone", see and talk with each other, and
see our dear Alma Mater again.
I'll be seeing you, in March at Farm-
ville, 'til then good luck to each and every

Dear Class of 1920,
It was called to my attention the other
day that next June will mark the twenty-
fifth anniversary of our graduation! It
had to be pointed out to me, because, to
me at least, it doesn't seem that long ago.
Wouldn't it be fun to get together again
on Founders' Day, March 10th? Wouldn't
it be interesting to see what progress has
been made, for we know the school has
made progress with Dr. Jarman at its
head? Wouldn't it be pleasant to see what
remains as we knew it? And wouldn't it
be exciting to see lots of our old friends?
Can't we all suspend, for a brief period,
the anxieties ot war, forget the woes of
shopping, and ignore the difficulties of our
time, to meet on the campus for a jolly
Do promise me this, at least, fellow-
classmates: Promise to put this idea and
date in the back of your minds for the
winter and build your early spring plans
around trying to make it.
Hoping to see each and every one of
you, I am

Class of 1925
This is the year we have been waiting
for. Our twentieth reunion! It hardly
seems possible that so many years have
passed since we worked, played and sang
together in those beloved walls! What fun
it would be if we could all meet at Farm-
ville and live again the happiness of those
days. The changes are so many that I
wonder if we would know our way
Your response to my letter several years
ago was just splendid. How I did enjoy
so much interesting news from you! This
time I'm looking forward to seeing you
and talking over the worthwhile things
you are doing these busy war days. Please
start now making your plans to join us
for a happy Founders Day anniversary.
With every good wish to each of you,
Kitty Morgan Hogg
Dear Classmates of '35,
It is hard to realize that ten years have
passed since we were the graduating class
at S.T.C. To me it seems that only a
short time ago we were together singing
our class songs and singing to Miss Moran,
our Classman. Wouldn't it be fun to get
together and sing our songs and talk about
all the things we used to do at Farmville?
This year the class of '35 will have its
tenth reunion. Many things have hap-
pened to us since we have been out of
school, and we have just lots of things to
talk about. At this time, everyone is bus-
ier than usual, engaging in war activities

Miss Mary White Cox
^MJNDAY, October 8, 1944, marked the end of a life devoted to the service of Farm-
*^ville State Teachers College. Miss Mary White Cox was the daughter of the late Mr.
B. M. Cox, business manager of the College for many years, and his wife, Miss Helen
Howlett. Graduating at S. T. C. in February, 1898, she taught in Franklin, Augusta and
Tazewell Counties until 1902, when she became associated with the Home Department
of our College. From 1915 until her retirement in June, 1944, she graced the position as
Head of the Home with utmost poise and tact. The undersigned committee was ap-
pointed by the Alumnae Executive Board to draw up suitable resolutions on her retire-
ment. They were read by Dr. Jarman at the June commencement.
It is rare in the life of an institution when one loyal person serves it so long
and so well as our "Miss Mary" has served our Alma Mater. Today she retires
from her position with the admiration and affection of the hundreds of us who
have grown up under her guidance and inspiration. We have observed in her a
devotion to duty, almost martyr-like, yet we have rejoiced in her unfailing sense
of humor that always triumphs over even the most perplexing circumstances.
Each girl who has come under her guidance has been aware of the fact that
"Miss Mary" had an ideal for her girls — she desired each one to be courteous,
helpful, and kind at all times.
No problem of ours has ever been too minor to claim her sympathetic at-
tention; and her judgment we have found almost uncannily wise and sound.
She has builded better than she knew, by holding steadfast to the plan that
inspired the founders of our Alma Mater; she will have her reward in the
knowledge that "her girls" are trying to conform to the pattern of life she ap-
proved for them.
Thank you, Miss Mary, for all you have done for our Alma Mater and
for each of us, and may God bless you and keep you.

petuating and strengthening the ideals for which our college has stood through the years.

Nannie Forbes (Mrs. Asa D. Watkins) is an
associate member of the Association of Alum-
nae, as she was a student in the college which
existed in Farmville just before the creation of
the State Female Normal School. The Prince
Edward Bar presented to the court a portrait
of her husband, the late Judge Asa D. Wat-
kins, as a token of the esteem and love of his
associates and other friends. The exercises were
impressive and moving and the tributes were
summed up in the words, "He was a great man,
a great jurist, a great friend."
Loulie McKinney, 165 South Candler St., De-
catur, Ga., >vas greatly interested in the 1944
Alumnae Magazine. "It gave me news of 'old
girls' and their sons and daughters — friends
that I've not heard from in years." In turn,
she gave news of contemporaries and their kin.

full and useful life stands out shiningly in its
completeness." From January, 1944, issue of

Elizabeth Carper (Mrs. W. D. Shelby)
served as a Medical Doctor with her Doctor
husband nine years in China. They returned
in 1916 and settled in Charleston, Indiana.
This town has been noted in the past three
years for the biggest powder plant in the
world. She writes: "Our five children are the
pride of our lives. One son is in the Navy,
one daughter is an Ensign in the WAVES, an-
other daughter is overseas as a Red Cross
Kate Vaughan (Mrs. F. Southall Farrar) was
present on July 4 at Brunswick, Ga., when the
Liberty ship F. Southall Farrar was launched.
The 4-H Clubs of each state were given the
privilege, by the United States Maritime Com-
mission, of naming a ship in recognition of
work done in food production, salvage, bond
drives and other wartime activities. Mr. Far-
rar, who died in February, 1940, was chosen
for this honor in Virginia. He organized the

The June Class of 1894
By Maud Pollard Turman
YOU could scarcely find a happier,
"peppier" bunch of old ladies than
the ten members of the June Class of
1894 who met in Farmville on Founders
Day, 1944 to celebrate their fiftieth anni-
versary. (For a woman to admit that she
was graduated fifty years ago is of itself
We came just as the Bible said they
would come in the last days — from the
East and from the West, from the North
and from the South. I came from the
"Deep South", all the way from Atlanta,
Georgia, as the only member of the class
living outside of Virginia,
We were royally treated during our
stay, being domiciled in Cunningham
Hall, and seated in the dining room at a
large round-table where we reminisced
and feasted both body and soul, as we
rejoiced to be together once more.
We had met not only to attend the
Founders Day exercises and renew our
loyalty to our Alma Mater, and to cele-
brate our fiftieth anniversary of our grad-
uation, but deliberately with malice afore-
thought, we went to Farmville with the
avowed intention of winning the Jarman
attendance cup for the second time, since
nine members of our class attended the
1934 Founders Day, and had won the

(The Life of a Freshman— Year 1943-44)
Sept. 20, 1943, Dear Diary:
My first day at college and "oh" what
a day. When I arrived at the train station
this morning I must say I was homesick,
frightened and lonely 'cause I didn't see
a single familiar face. While I was still
looking around, a girl in white with a blue
badge on which said Y.W.C.A. came up
to me and after a friendly greeting offered
to show me my way to the college. I
found out that she knows Jane and Mary
who were at camp with me. She helped
me register and matriculate and then
showed me to my room. My roommate
is a precious girl. She was already unpack-
ing when I opened the door, and had also
met lots of the other freshmen. After sup-
per some one said, "Let's go to prayers."
We went down to the auditorium and in
the quiet of the candle light someone led
a vesper program. I believe they have this
service every night, and I'm going to plan
to go. Tonight we went down to a room
they call the "Rec". It is a recreation
room. There I met lots of the other fresh-
men and some of the upper classmen. Oh
yes! They served us cokes and cookies and
did they taste good. Some upper classmen
sang for us, and one of the freshmen
played boogie. I'm so tired and sleepy,
but I believe I'm going to like this life
Sept. 24, 1943, Dear Diary:
I met my "Big Sister" this morning and
she said for me to be sure to press my
taffeta because there's to be a "Big Sis-
ter, Little Sister" reception Friday night.
Sept. 26, 1943, Dear Diary:
My! I was scared stiff at the idea of
going down the receiving line. It wasn't
half bad though. Dr. Jarman is so nice,
and the faculty members aren't as digni-
fied as they might seem to be — they're just
like other folks I know. Refreshments and
a skit ended up the evening just right.
Sept. 29, 1943, Dear Diary:
Tonight I went to the first lyceum pro-
gram of the year. Mrs. Vera M. Dean,
well known lecturer, spoke on "Russia As
a World Power." She was very interest-
ing, and I thoroughly enjoyed her talk.
Oct. 6, 1943, Dear Diary:
The strangest and most impressive thing
happened today. In chapel they had an
Alpha Kappa Gamma tapping service. As
quiet music was played, the members
dressed in the caps and gowns, walked
slowly up the aisle, tapped the new girls,
and took them back to the stage. I was
all tense with wonder and excitement, not
knowing who the next person would be.
I don't think I'll ever forget the way I
felt, and it was then that I made being
a member of Alpha Kappa Gamma my
Oct. 8, 1943, Dear Diary:
Tonight was really tops. I went to the
presentation of the "Faculty Family Al-
bum" and it was swell. I hardly recog-
nized any of my teachers in their get-ups.
They wore everything from bathing suits
to old-fashioned hoop skirts. Boy, are they
going to get teased tomorrow.
Oct. 16, 1943, Dear Diary:
I have never spent such a hectic day.
To begin with, I had to get up at five
o'clock in order to dress for the day. O, I
forgot to say that we are being ratted by
the sophomores. After a day spent in
making beds, sweeping, skipping, eating
square meals, and lots of other nonsense
things you would be exhausted, too.
Oct. 20, 1943, Dear Diary:
I actually felt like a woman this eve-
ning. Clad in white "we" the freshmen of
'43 were installed into the Y.W.C.A. The
ceremony took place in beautiful Joan
Court at twilight. My heart was filled
with joy as carrying a lighted candle I
took my place in the procession singing
"Follow the Gleam".
Oct. 27, 1943, Dear Diary:
I certainly enjoyed chapel this morn-
ing. Kappa Delta Pi, which is an honor
society in education, announced the eight-
een students to whom they have issued
bids. I know they must feel honored.
Maybe some day I'll have the same honor,
Nov. 19, 1943, Dear Diary:
Today was an eventful one — classes as
usual — including a test in Spanish fol-
lowed by an exciting evening. The dra-
matic club presented the fall play — A. A.
Milne's "Ivory Door". I really enjoyed it,
and we have had more fun talking about
it tonight. Honestly, the Club really de-
serves credit for the grand acting, and that
realistic looking staging.
Nov. 20, 1943, Dear Diary:
The Sophomore Commission was really
performing tonight. They presented a
fashion show in the little auditorium. It
was a real show, believe me. I laugh
whenever I think of some of the ridiculous
outfits they modeled which are worn
around this campus. I guess I'd better get
to bed 'cause I have an 8:05 class in the
Dec. 17, 1943, Dear Diary:
Why do exams have to begin? They
really take away all of the pleasure of
thinking about the Christmas holiday. I
guess I'll have to get up early in the morn-
ing to finish studying.
Dec. 19, 1943, Dear Diary:
The mere thought of Christmas sends
chills of joy up and down my spine. To-
day the Freshman Commission decorated
the mantle in the Rotunda and also a
tree. After a marvelous banquet and Miss
Rice's traditional telling of the "Other
Wise Man" the student body went into
the Rotunda and wrapped cedar around
the columns and up the banister. The
Rotunda really looks beautiful now. To-
morrow night there is to be a Christmas
pageant, and the next night the president
of the student body is going to tell the
story "Why the Chimes Rang". I just
can hardly wait to catch that train home
on Tuesday. I guess I'll dream about
Santa Claus and sugar plums tonight.
Jan. 20, 1944, Dear Diary:
I really feel relieved tonight. Yes sir,
it's all over now and was a grand success.
I'm speaking of the Commission's presen-
tation of "A Night at the Stork Club".
The little auditorium was overflowing with
people, and everyone said it was a real
success. I'm so happy!
Feb. 2, 1944, Dear Diary:
Today in chapel the distinguished Dr.
McMullen, Presbyterian missionary to
China spoke to us. He is a charming gen-
tleman and I must say his internment in
a Japanese camp didn't seem to affect
him physically. He told of his thrilling
experiences as a prisoner and then of his
trip back to the States on the Gripsholm.
I'm glad I wasn't in his shoes.
Feb. 19, 1944, Dear Diary:
I have never seen such pretty girls as
were down at the dance tonight. It was
the annual Mardi Gras Dance. The queen
and her court looked gorgeous. I met a
precious boy in navy blue. He said he was
going to write to me next week. After
the dance was over I dashed up to second
floor Rotunda to watch the dates come in.
Do my feet hurt!
Feb. 22, 1944, Dear Diary:
Everyone said it was just wonderful,
and we freshmen are so glad that the pro-
duction was a huge success. The best
thing about it was that practically all of
us were in it. You see — we had all of the
months in the year and a skit for each
month. I laughed myself until I thought
I would just about die, I was scared while
I was doing my part, but it was fun.
Feb. 29, 1944, Dear Diary:
Golly, I had fun tonight. We little sis-
ters entertained our big sisters at a coke
and nab party in the "Rec". We really
had the S.T.C. spirit if you judged it by
Mar. 5, 1944, Dear Diary:
Big doings! I liked chapel very much
today because it featured a Founder's Day
program. Phillis Pedigo, a Farmville
alumna, talked to us. I had read in the
Reader's Digest about her experiences as
a Red Cross worker in Australia, but I'd
never dreamed of seeing her face to face.
And the class of 1894!! They were ten of
the spryest old ladies I've ever seen, and
one of them, a "Georgia Peach", gave the
cutest little talk. We clapped and clapped
for her. Here's hoping that I'm half as
attractive .as they when I grow old.
March 27, 1944, Dear Diary:
I've tried to go to Sunday School each
Sunday especially this month. There's
been a contest on between the churches.
The Baptist girls won and we losers have
to entertain them at a party.
March 31, 1944, Dear Diary:
Major elections are over! I think the
officers for next year are going to be tops.
Of course we have a vague idea of who
would win in the elections, but the sus-
pense was still terrific.
April 15, 1944, Dear Diary:
Today was certainly an unusual one.
The Duke choir came up and joined our
choir in a concert for the afternoon. They
were directed by the internationally
known Dr. T. Tertius Noble. The com-
bined choirs gave a perfectly beautiful
interpretation of Brahm's Requiem. The
Duke boys ate in the dining hall with us
at dinner. As we were leaving, they sang
several snappy numbers — to Miss Mary's
April 19, 1944, Dear Diary:
Gosh! I've almost racked my brain —
in fact, I feel like another Einstein. What
I'm getting at is that I have just returned
from a quiz contest. Five brilliant Hamp-
den-Sydney lads met with five of our wiz-
ards in a thrilling contest tonight. Miss
Phyllis Pedigo was with them and acted
as Mistress of Ceremonies. She fired the
questions at them which really got things
started in a hurry. It was much fun — of
course H-S won, but that's' beside the
point. Oh well, there will always be more
April 21, 1944, Dear Diary:
At a Lyceum tonight I heard Miss Li
Ling-Ai speak. She is the only Chinese
woman producer in the world of the the-
ater, an actress, dancer, lecturer, writer,
designer, aviatrix, and doctor. What a
woman! She spoke on "China Tomor-
row". It is certainly broadening my pre-
vious knowledge to have the opportunity
of hearing such famous people.
April 23, 1944, Dear Diary:
Today at chapel we had a very pleasant
surprise. Rev. Claude Pickens, a returned
missionary from China spoke to us on the
"War in China". He wore a beautiful
silk robe such as some of the natives wear.
How I would love to visit China one day!
Since I can't right now, I'd better read
that chapter in my history book on China,
which has to be read for class tomorrow.
May 5, 1944, Dear Diary:
Since it rained today we could not have
our annual May Day program out at
Longwood, but the dance tonight was
wonderful and made up for the disap-
pointment of the afternoon. All of the
May Court wore their May Day costumes,
and they were beautiful. I think my date
had a good time being rushed by all of
May 6, 1944, Dear Diary:
May Day is over but what fun I did
have working and slaving over my little
dance and costume. We had the exer-
cises today out at Longwood, and they
really went over well in spite of the many
May 10, 1944, Dear Diary:
Whatta day! Wonder if I'll ever rest
my "weary bones" again? I really had a
wonderful time at Camp Pickett though.
The Wacs and soldiers are really tops, and
I'll never forget how nice they were to me.
I was lucky enough to ride in one of "those
Jeeps", too. Boy, it was fun. Eating in
the mess hall was quite an experience —
more food! I won't soon forget the big
dance that the boys gave in our honor.
The orchestra was grand, and so were the
boys ! Incidentally, the whole student body
had been invited over for the afternoon
and evening. Gee whizz, my feet hurt,
and I'm sleepy.
May 1 5, 1 944, Dear Diary :
Honestly, I'm getting to feel like an
upperclassman. We had a conference at
Longwood today to plan for next year's
work in the Y.W.C.A. Nannie had made
some of her delicious buns, and they really
hit the spot after the meeting was over.
May 16, 1944, Dear Diary:
Things are really coming to a close.
This morning was "Senior Chapel Day",
and it really started one to thinking. The
color cup was presented to "Red and
White" — just wait until next year — , and
after the enthusiasm died down our own
Dr. Jarman sang to the seniors his usual
song "Keep on Hoping". The seniors then
presented their songs to the student body
and faculty. My heart was filled to over-
flowing at the thought that these wonder-
ful girls won't be back next year. I ex-
pect the juniors really felt happy and sad
as they marched out under the arch of
May 28, 1944, Dear Diary:
I can't believe that I'll soon be a sopho-
more. This has been one grand year.
'Course it's not quite over, but only a few
more days left in this year at S.T.C. My
trunk has already been sent home and
my old room on Main looks mighty bare.
Oh, the annuals came out last week and
I'm so proud of mine. I still have to get
lots of folks to sign it. Diary, this has been
a wonderful year at college, and I'm look-
ing forward to my next three years here.
SOME friends in the State Department
of Education sponsored a dinner in
Richmond this summer in honor of Dr.
Jarman. The occasion was the celebration
of his forty-two years as president of our
College and fifty-five years as an educator
in Virginia. The invited guests included
the Presidents of the other Colleges in
Virginia, some of the leaders in educa-
tional affairs, representatives from the
faculty and Alumnae Chapters and per-
sonal friends. It was impossible to invite
a larger group as the accommodations
were limited. Among the Alumnae pres-
ent were Louise McCormick Brown and
her husband, Frances Howard, Julia
Asher, Anne Smith Green, Emma Webb
Watkins, Kate Trent, Ruth Jordan, Cor-
nelia Dickinson Nuckols, Carrie Rennie
Eason, Maria Bristow Starke and her hus-
band, Mary Lou Campbell Graham, Lucy
Haile Overby Webster, Carrie Sutherlin,
and Louise Ford Waller. Dr. Dabney
Lancaster was the toastmaster. Many im-
promptu speeches called forth much wit
and humor. All the speeches were affec-
tionate and appreciative tributes to Dr.
Jarman as College President, administra-
tor, and friend. Dr. Jarman's response was
in his best style. Dr. Joseph Saunders,
President of the State Board of Education,
and a life-long friend, presented him with
a handsomely bound volume of letters
from many friends.
Dr. Martha Smith, our new Dean of
Women, is a native of Kentucky. She re-
ceived her bachelor of arts degree at But-
ler University, Indianapolis, Ind., her mas-
ter's at Birmingham Southern, Birming-
ham, Ala., and her Ph.D. from the Uni-
versity of Nebraska. Following this she
studied at the Universite de Basacon in
Doubis, France, and the French School
of Middlebury, Vt. For the past seven
years she has been dean of women at State
Teachers College, Wayne, Nebraska.
Alpha Lee Garnett, Richmond, succeeds
Rachel Royal as assistant to the Dean of
Women at S.T.C. She received her B.S.
degree from Farmville and taught at Cul-
peper and Ravenscroft School, Raleigh,
N. C. For the past year she has been with
the American Red Cross at the Army Air
Base in Richmond.
Dr. George W. Jeffers, head of the De-
partment of Biology, has been given a
leave of absence for one year. He is di-
rector of the Chesapeake Bay Fisheries
Study under the auspices of the Chesa-
peake Bay Commission. The study is
financed by the General Education Board.
Mr. Norman O. Myers of the Business
Education Department, is on leave of ab-
sence, serving in the U. S. Navy.
Dr. Leroy Merritt, librarian, is serving
with the U. S. Army in France.

When Readers Write
"I can't find words to express my pleas-
ure as I read the Alumnae Magazine. It
is an inspiration to read about the girls I
used to know. It makes me want to do
big things, too." — Lettie C. Laughan.
"I've gotten quite a thrill out of the
Alumnae Bulletins which have reached
me in a round-about way. I am so glad
to contribute to a portrait of Miss Coul-
ling. I loved and admired her very much.
The things she taught me have been of
real value in bringing up my four chil-
dren and in running my home." — Nellie
"My sister, Julia, and I are still talking
about the wonderful time we had in Farm-
ville on Founders Day. It was nice to see
our old College expanding, growing more
beautiful and carrying on its fine work."
— Annette Leach Gemwell.
"It wouldn't be possible to tell you how
much we enjoyed our stay on Founders
Day. Thank Dr. Jarman for giving us
this privilege. The program was beautiful-
ly carried out, the hospitality shown us
was wonderful, and the comforts you pro-
vided for our fiftieth anniversary were
perfect." — Pauline Harris Netherland;
Alma Harris Richardson.
"The memories of my trip to Farmville
will ever be a pleasure to me. To have
a large group of my classmates and other
old friends of forty years ago there as a
kind of receiving line started me off de-
lightfully. It gave me a feeling of impor-
tance, and you know that helps. We never
grow too old for flattery. To me the spirit
of the dear old place is very remarkable.
I enjoyed my rambles through the old
hallways because there I was communing
with the "Master Spirits" of forty years
ago. Happily though some of those spirits
were there in body. I gave Miss Rice a
hard, tight hug." — Carrie Martin Pegigo.
"As usual I read the Alumnae Bulletin
from cover to cover. It is a fine job and
it is a real joy to get it. Farmville S. T. C.
means more to me than any other College,
since I owe more to it than to any other
College. It gave me my real start as a
teacher, and my husband, the greatest of
all my blessings." — Fannie Littleton Kline.
"It gave me quite a start to see myself
listed by my maiden name in the Alum-
nae Bulletin when my house was fairly
being taken apart by our three children.
So to keep scandal from my door and to
put the records up to date, I am writing
to say I am Mrs. J. Henry Clippard in-
stead of Sadie Hunt." (Moral: Don't let
this happen to you!)
"The nine Lynchburg Alumnae cer-
tainly enjoyed the recent Founders Day
visit to Farmville." — Helen Costen.
"I do appreciate the picture of the Class
of 1894. Mr. McCorkle did a wonderful
job with these ten old ladies. With the
exception of two who would have their
heads too high, all were flattered. But we
all felt like holding them high that event-
ful day. Thank all who had a part in giv-
ing us so many pleasures." — Effie Shell
"Thanks for the wonderful Founders
Day week-end. It was worth traveling
many more miles to hear Phyllis Pedigo.
As my son, Joe, is in New Guinea, her
talk was near to my heart." — Esme
"It seems that I only had time to say
"Hello" and "Good-bye", but I surely
enjoyed doing that. It is always grand to
get back to Farmville from faraway Bris-
tol." — Mary Dornin Stant.
"The Bulletin just received gave me
quite a thrill. I do wonder what has hap-
pened to the members of the Class of
February 1901? I would love to hear from
them. I hope I can return to old Farm-
ville some day and see all the great
changes." — Elizabeth Carper Shelby, M.D.
"Every time I visit Farmville, I am
convinced that old S.T.C. is the finest
place ever." — Virginia Brinkley.
"Farmville meant so much to me that
I should like to serve her in any possible
way." — Mary Berkeley Nelson.
"Nancy Lyne expressed my feelings per-
fectly in the 1944 Alumnae Bulletin. I
have read her letter many times and I am
asking that you send catalogs to some
Swarthmore friends, who have daughters
interested in becoming kindergarten
teachers." — Kitty Carroll Price.
"How nice to have a letter from our
1914 class president, Maria Bristow
Starke, and to get the Bulletin with its
news and pictures of Dr. Jarman and
Louise Ford Waller! I am living in La-
Jolla, Calif., one of the busy crossroads of
this country, and life is very exciting here.
My husband is a physician and terribly
hard at work. I wonder if any other
Farmville Alumnae live near me?" — Lucy

Greetings Class of '35:
Imagine us being up for the ten-year
hurdle. Quite a jump, eh lassies? There's
compensation in the green pastures of our
first really important reunion though.
You'll have to admit that!
Remember in June, 1935, how seriously
we took ourselves, always saying to each
other, "Wonder what we'll be doing ten
years from now?" It seemed time enough
to accomplish any feat — from captivating
a husband and beginning a family to
climbing to the top ring of the career
ladder. Of course, we didn't reckon with
a war way back then, despite Dr. Walms-
ley's warning to keep an eye on the Japs.
Founder's Day 1945 will be the ideal
time to get the answers to our ten years
of waiting. For who of us can resist a
continued story, especially the personal
ones? You know you'd get a kick out of
shooting the breeze with the old crowd.
"What are you doing anyway? How in
the world did you rate that wonderful
position? Where's your husband these
days, Army, Navy, or home front? Two
children? My, I hadn't heard about the
first one! I love the new coiffure, my
dear. You look younger than you did ten
years ago." (Who other than a classmate
would say that?)
Snap shots and stories galore, that's
what we want. Bring them back alive if
you can. If you can't, send them back
anyway so the ones of us who do get back
can enjoy them.
Here, my friends, is to 1945, may it be
a year of reunion for the world as well as
the class. See you next spring, I hope.

Class of 1894
(Continued from page 16)
We were somewhat disconcerted on the
evening of our arrival to hear the rumor
that another class was expecting one hun-
dred per cent attendance. That made us
a little anxious, but we vowed that we'd
believe that only when we saw it! Hence
it was not until shortly before the exer-
cises began the next morning that we were
informed that no class had beat our rec-
Out of the twenty-one who composed
the class of 1894, there were thirteen still
living, and ten of the thirteen were pres-
ent and accounted for! When the classes
were called for according to the date of
their graduation, you can imagine that
there was something of a sensation created
when ten women arose to respond for
June 1894. We were also the oldest "old
grads" present, and tho some of the
younger girls might have expected to see
us in various degrees of decrepitude, be-
lieve it or not, we were all quite spry!
Mrs. Coyner made us feel that we were
in reality the "piece de resistance" of the
At the Alumnae luncheon which imme-
diately followed the formal exercises in
the auditorium, our class were the guests
of honor, and to cap the climax, we each
found at our place at the table a daintily
wrapped package which was so intriguing
that we could not resist the temptation to
open it and see what it contained. Imag-
ine our delight to discover that we were
being presented with an after-dinner cup
and saucer of Wedgewood china with a
picture of the Rotunda on it! It goes
without saying that this souvenir of our
reunion will be treasured by us as long
as we live.
As we were leaving the luncheon, we
were met by one of the professors who in-
formed us that he was an amateur pho-
tographer and would like to take our pic-
tures. Accordingly we were hastily
grouped on the back steps of the main
building and were photographed, that is,
all of us except Lena Trower Ames who
had been detained by someone who
wanted to give her an address, and it was
not until our names were asked for that
it was discovered that Lena was not
among those present!
You will pardon me, I am sure, if I
brag a little about the class which has
kept together in a most unusual way,
largely through the influence of our class
letter, instituted by Lena Trower Ames,
and which has made its regular rounds
through all these fifty years. Then too,
the several reunions which we have held
through the intervening years, at several
different places, have served to keep us
in closer touch with each other than would
have been possible otherwise.
Those who attended the fiftieth anni-
versary were Lena Trower Ames from
the Eastern Shore, Mabyn Branch Simp-
son of Norfolk, Loulie Gayle Bland and
Lola Bland from King and Queen
County, Ruby Hudgins Diggs of Hamp-
ton, our twins — Alma Harris Netherland
and Pauline Harris Richardson of Din-
widdie, Janie Staples Chappell of Meher-
rin, Mary Fitzhugh Eggleston of Bedford
and Maud Pollard Turman of Atlanta,
Georgia. Of course, we greatly missed and
longed for the three living members who
were unable to be present — Lizzie Ben-
nett of Arlington, Mattie Buchanan of
Dublin, Julia Leache of Roanoke, as well
as those members of our class who have
"gone on before" — Cathie Wilkie of Gor-
donsville, Emma Higgins Johnson of Gil-
merton, Georgia, Wescott Stokley of the
Eastern Shore, Julia Harrison Pedrick,
originally from Portsmouth, but who died
in New Orleans, Jennie Chandler Cole-
man of Massaponax, Virginia Greever of
Wytheville, Mary Sue Oglesby of Draper
and Mabel Roberts Tankard of the East-
ern Shore. We were delighted to have our
ranks increased by having Effie Shell
Chappell, who graduated in February,
1894, come with her cousins, "the Harris
Our class president from 1894 until her
greatly deplored death in February, 1943,
was Mary Sue Oglesby. We then did
what so far as I know has not been done
by any other class, — we elected two pres-
idents to take her place. For more than
a year we have been functioning most
harmoniously under our twin presidents —
Alma Harris Netherland and Pauline Har-
ris Richardson of Dinwiddie. It seemed
appropriate to us to have them both as
president since we could never think of
one without the other, and since in all
their lives they have never been separated.
We have felt that our class was suffi-
ciently unusual in so many respects that
perhaps coming generations would be in-
terested in knowing about this class which
graduated when the institution was ex-
actly ten years old, and accordingly we
asked Mary Fitzhugh Eggleston, who has
a phenomenal memory, to write a history
of our class and the circumstances which
were a part of our life at Farmville. Mary,
having carefully prepared such a history,
brought it with her to read to the assem-
bled class for criticism and additions. This
history when it is put in final shape, will
be presented to the college to be preserved
in the archives of the institution. And
who knows but that some girl graduating
fifty years from now, and desiring to write
the history of the college, may find it
most helpful to know something of the
early days at Farmville, and we will then
become "source material"!
Look out for us in 1954 when we are
already planning to be back at Founders
Day to win the cup for the third time in

Dr. Sibyl Henry, principal of the Farm-
ville Elementary School, presented her
thesis and was granted the Ph.D. degree
from the University of North Carolina in
June. Her subject was "Children's Audio-
grams in Relation to Reading Attain-
ment." The highly reliable connection
found between high-tone acuity and read-
ing achievement suggests that the school
must assume the responsibility for discov-
ering high-tone loss and for providing

Brief Report of
November 6, 1943 to October 1, 1944
1. Alumnae Magazine: The magazines were
mailed out only one week before Founders Day
due to war conditions in the printing world.
About 7,000 magazines were mailed and about
475 were returned because of incorrect ad-

6. Prospective Students: Emphasis has been
placed on the help the Alumnae can give in
interesting good students to attend our College.
I visited about 45 high schools this spring.
The Alumnae have arranged teas, picnics, and
trips to the College for High School students
on May Day. During the summer, follow-up
letters were written to each student who indi-
cated an interest in attending this College.
7. American Alumni Council: I attended the
Regional Conference of the American Alumni
Council in Atlanta, Ga., December 6-7, 1943.
The theme of the conference was "Alumni
Work in Time of War." The talks were most
interesting and inspirational.
At the spring meeting of the Alumnae Exec-
utive Board it was voted to add the portrait
of Dr. F. A. Millidge to our "Hall of Fame"
in the new College Library. It was suggested
that only those who knew and loved Dr. Mill-
idge would wish to contribute to this portrait
fund. Hence the appeal is included in this Bulle-

The Robert Frazer Memorial Fund
Miss Rice reports that Normal League Loans are being repaid, and that the Robert
Frazer Memorial Fund (Normal League Fund), is now within twenty dollars of the
goal she set for the past year. True, several thousand dollars are still due, but Miss Rice
is hopeful that she will see many debts wiped out before she retires. Many students have
been aided by the Normal League, and their appreciation has been expressed through
letters as returns are made. Can we make Miss Rice happy on next Founders Day by
sending her more letters and by paying even a small amount on the loan received?
Alumnae, Please Help!!
If you have moved or married, or both, please send in your correct name and ad-
dress. Just a plain postal to the Alumnae Secretary will do. Include other Alumnae
who have recently moved and may not receive this Bulletin. So far Frances Strohecker
is the only member of the Class of 1944 who has sent the promised postal!

No Election This Year
Men Are Drafted— Why Not Women?
At a meeting of the Nominating Committee, Monday, September 24, 1944, it was voted
unanimously to draft for another term, if possible, the services of the two officers due
to be elected this year, namely a president and a director. This action was submitted
to the present officers and they have consented to serve another term.
The committee feels that two important circumstances justify this war time procedure.
First, the splendid services these two officers have rendered, and second, the difficulty of
securing nominees in the short time allotted us before the Bulletin has to go to press,
October 1. The cost of mailing 7,000 separate ballots to you later in the year is almost

Sutherlin, your director, on Founders Day.
