Latest Portrait of Our 
Beloved President 


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 

Sincerely yours, 

Louise Ford Waller, Alumnae President

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.

Class Reunions 

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. 
Sincerely yours, 
Mary Cralle Richardson 

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

Day, 1945. 

Your devoted friend,

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? 

"And are you sure the news is true, 
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 
the inspiration from the spirit of dear Mr. 
Cunningham, Mrs. Morrison and others 
whom we have loved long since and lost 
a while? 

Do let us meet to celebrate a golden

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 
NEW auditorium! 

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 
since 1905? 

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.

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 

Alumnae Magazine 

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 
Dear Girls, 

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 
around ! 

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.

LOOK at the roster of our "Granddaughters"! Thirty-three new ones this year, bring- 
' ing the total number to one-hundred eight. It means a great deal to have these 
daughters and granddaughters of loyal Alumnae here. There is no surer way of per- 
petuating and strengthening the ideals for which our college has stood through the years.

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 
at S.T.C. 

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. 

December, 1944 

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, 
I hope! 

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 

Alumnae Magazine 

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. 
You'll see. 

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 
our singing. 

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 

December, 1944 

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 
the girls. 

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.

Administration and 
Faculty News 

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 

Dean Smith 

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 
Heath Walker, 

"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 
Howell Smith. 

"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 

Alumnae Magazine 

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 
Heath Sherrill. 

Class Reunions 

(Continued from page 7 ) 

and doing everything possible to aid in the 
winning of the war, but try to take a little 
time off to come back to Farmville on 
Founders Day. We'll talk over our four 
years of school and tell each other about 
our last ten years — we'll have a "whale of 
a reunion". 

Best wishes to each of you, and I am 
looking forward to seeing a lot of you on 
Founders Day.

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 

December, 1944 

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. 
Affectionately yours, 

Lena Mac Gardner,

Alumnae Magazine 

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 
whole occasion! 

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- 

December, 1944 

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 
succession !

tuting for Mr. Landrum. 

Miss Lisabeth Purdom, assistant profes- 
sor of Music at S.T.C. since 1928, died 
at St. Luke's Hospital, Richmond, in July. 
Her untimely death brought sorrow to her 
many devoted students and friends in 
Farmville, throughout Virginia and her 
native State of Georgia. She was director 
of the College orchestra, and gave many 
young people their start in this field. 

Miss Mary M. Snead, assistant librarian, 
left in June to accept a government posi- 
tion in Washington, D. C. 

Miss Sara B. Tucker of the History fac- 
ulty, and Miss Georgiana Stephenson, su- 
pervisor of the seventh grade in the Col-

native of Louisville, Kentucky. 

Miss Mary B. Dabney, M.A., Colum- 
bia, assistant professor of Physical Educa- 
tion, comes from Lynchburg, Va. She is 
an official in national basketball and on 
the Sports Committee, Physical Education 
for the State. 

Arthur Paul Davisson, of Fairmont, W. 
Va., Professor of Biology, comes from 
Fairmont State College. He has a masters 
from the University of W. Va., and is 
working on his doctorate at the University 
of Pittsburgh. Mr. Davisson is substitut- 
ing for Dr. Jeffers. 

Mrs. Janice Speer Lemen, M.A., comes

professor of Art. 

Dr. C. G. G. Moss, a native of Lynch- 
burg, associate professor of History, comes

taught at Winthrop College and Black- 
stone College. 

Dr. Francis B. Simkins of the History 
and Social Science Department, is author 
of "Pitchfork Ben Tillman, South Caro- 
linian". It is the story of the one-eyed 
farmer who in 1890 captured control of 

the South's most conservative common- 
wealth from the aristocrats, and then 
among other interesting things, estab- 
lished Winthrop and Clemson Colleges. 
This 600-page narrative with handsome 
illustrations will be published this fall by

Baton Rouge, La. 

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 
compensatory measures. 

Miss Georgia Norris, Supervisor in the 
Farmville Elementary School, was a dele- 
gate to the National Convention of the 
D.A.R. held in Cincinnati, Ohio, in April. 

Professors J. M. Grainger and M. Boyd

D. Packer) , became resident nurse of the 
College in January, 1944. Following her 
graduation from Johns Hopkins Hospital 
School of Nursing she spent three years 
in China, during which time she helped 
with the establishment of the Rockefeller 
Hospital in Peking. In 1930 she opened 
the out-patient department of the South- 
side Community Hospital, Farmville, later 
took charge of the out-patient department 
at Johns Hopkins. Just before coming to 
Farmville she was superintendent at St. 
Luke's Hospital, Tryon, N. C.

their service record was made in the library 
for Founders Day. 

3. Alumnae Cultivation in the present student 

a. I have attended a senior class meeting, 
talking to them about the work of the Alumnae 
Association, and asking that they elect a class 
representative. Mary Moore McCorkle was 

b. Seniors have been invited to visit the 
Alumnae Office and see what a tremendous 
effort we are making to keep our files up-to- 
date. We show them our master file, the ad- 
dressograph or geographic file, and the mar- 
riage file. 

c. I have visited the Granddaughters Club

5. Visits to Chapters and other Alumnae 
Groups: I have visited the following places for 
Alumnae meetings: Lynchburg, Roanoke, 
Washington, Richmond, Petersburg, Clarksville, 
Bristol, Tazewell, Wytheville, Pulaski, Norfolk, 
Portsmouth, Culpeper and Hampton. 

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. 


Notice Alumnae 

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- 

We feel sure that those girls who sat at Dr. 
Millidge's feet and learned from the "walking 
encyclopedia," as you affectionately called him, 
will want to see his portrait when you visit your 
Alma Mater. 

Send all contributions to one of the under- 
signed committee.

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 

We sincerely hope that this action meets with your hearty approval and that you will 
voice your appreciation when you meet Louise Ford Waller, your president, and Carrie 
Sutherlin, your director, on Founders Day.
