Mary Washington College of the University of Virginia 

Drama, "Little 
Women" Given In 
G. W. Auditorium 

Little Women, presented in 
George Washington Hall on Fri- 
day, May 17 at 8 o'clock, was a 
charmingly enacted production. 

Excellent performances given by 
the cast and a tastefully con- 
structed stage set lent reality and 
vividness to the immortal March 
family created by the pen of 
Louisa Mae Alcott and dramatized 
by Marian De Forest. 

Joyce Corbett gave an enthu- 
siastic portrayal' of the spirited 
Jo'. Her bodily movement and 
gesture were especially adapted 
to the role. 

Patricia Nussey played the part 
of Meg charmingly and convinc- 
ingly, showing herself to be a 
superior actress. 

No one could have been so suit- 
able in the role of Amy as was 
the diminutive Rosemary Brooks. 
Her piquant charm and impishly 
attractive appearance made her a 
natural for the part. She revealed 
excellent stage presence and grace. 
Bety Caum portrayed Beth with 
delicate restraint and sensitive- 
ness. Although the role was not 
one to display her talents to best 
advantage, she handled it admir- 
ably and wholeheartedly. 

The role of Marmee gave con- 
tinued evidence of Nelle Dawes' 
extreme versatility as an actress. 
Throughout her Mary Washington 
stage career, Miss Dawes has yet 
to be typed in any one role. She 
has the rare gift of being able to 
adapt herself completely to a role 
and to be, not an actress portray- 
ing the character, but to become 
the character herself. 

Dr. Stansbury, as Mr. March, 
gave a completely natural and in- 
deed a splendid performance. He 
showed himself to have a sensitive 
and capable grasp of dramatic 
technique. . 

Laurie was portrayed by Tedo 
Savage with grace and warmth. 
The lovable boy's charm and wit 
were well transposed to the stage 
by Mr. Savage. 

Alice Ross played brilliantly the 
role of Aunt March. She seemed 
to have lost herself completely in 
the crusty and eccentric nature of 
the kindhearted old woman. The 
audience could easily sense that 
here was an actress who was re- 
lishing each line of her character's 

Dr. Castle was a genial and 
lovable John Brooke, lending some 
of his own infectious charm to 
his portrayal of the professor. Dr. 
Tanner as Mr. Lawrence and Mr. 
Schnellock as Professor Bhaer 
both turned in memorable per- 
formances. Rebecca Grigg was ex- 
cellent in the role of Hannah. 

The casting of Little Women 
was especially noteworthy. All of 
the performers jjeemed to enter 
with zest into the spirit of their 
characterizations. Unusually skill- 
ful direction of the play was evi- 
dent, and indeed the last produc- 
tion of the year proved itself to 
be one of the best to have been 
presented on a Mary Washington 


Marv Washington College students serve guests at a tea held on Mother's Day by the Washington- 
Lewis Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution in the garden of the Mary Washington 
home near the campus. At this same place in her garden Mrs. Washington entertained the Marquis 
de Lafayette and many other distinguished persons. 

Freshman Orientation 
Outlined For Fall Oi 

Mary Washington accepted the 
coal shortage and scarcity of elec- 
tricity in the recent crisis, and 
armed with flashlights and can- 
dles carried on its usual work. 

We have survived the crisis now, 
but there is still need to save elec- 
tricity -that MWC may continue 
its function throughout the next 
two weeks. 

Since college officials realize 
that the first few days of a fresh- 
man's college life are apt to be 
somewhat bewildering to her, they 
have planned a Freshman Orienta- 
tion Program which has a fourfold 

1. To welcome the freshman into 
the college community. 

2. To provide her an opportunity 
for "making herself at home" and 
becoming acquainted with the col- 

3. To give her information and 
advice that will help her become 
adjusted to her new environment. 

4. To help her in the routines 
of entrance and registration. 

Although conditions may neces- 
sitate some minor changes in the 
following program, the new stu- 
dent should save it. She will find 
it useful. -

By Mary Washington 

According to a plan suggested 
by Dr. and Mrs. Hugo litis, the 
faculty and student body of Mary 
Washington College has "adopted" 
the faculty and student body of 
Masaryk University, Brno, Czech- 
oslovakia. Packages of articles 
which will make the diet of these 
people more nearly adequate for 
health and will add generally to 
their well-being will be sent to 
them during the last two weeks 
of May. 

One hundred packages with a 
weight limit of eleven pounds each 
will be mailed to the faculty and 
student body there in the name 
of the faculty and student body 
here. Contributions have been col- 
lected and a volunteer group, 
under the direction of Marion 
Butler, will handle the details of 
assembling, packaging and mail-

Anne Everett 
Rides To Become 
Champion At 
MWC Horseshow 

Anne Everett, a Junior, was the 
winner of the championship trophy 
awarded to the best rider at Mary 
Washington College, at the Spring 
Horse Show, held Saturday after- 
noon, May 18, at Oak Hill Stables. 
Reserve championship went to 
Alison Bowen, another Junior. 

Anne Everett, who rode Sir 
Comet, a dark brown, four-year- 
old gelding, won first place in the 
Advanced Equitation Class and 
second place in Advanced Jump- 
ing. Alison Bowen, on Zero Hour, 
won first places in . Advanced 
Jumping and Knock-down-and-out, 
and fourth place in Advanced 

Intermediate Championship was 
won by Archer Kennett, a Fresh- 
man. Audrey Oglesby, another 
Freshman, was runner-up. Begin- 
ner's Championship went to Bar- 
bara Nestler, a Sophomore, with 
Lois Cole, a Freshman, as runner- 

In spite of intermittent showers 
throughout the afternoon, the 
show was acclaimed a success by 
the hundreds of parents, towns- 
people, alumni, and college stu- 
dents present. The twenty classes, 
which included horsemanship 
classes, an achievement class, and 
a Knock-down-and-out, were judg- 
ed by Mrs. Tom Watson, of Gor- 
donsville, Mrs. Maddux of Middle- 
burg, and Mr. Goodwin of The 
Plains, Virginia. 

Among the classes most eagerly 
watched by spectators was the 
Knock-down-and-out, which is a 
test of the horses' ability to jump 
height. The Achievement Class 
consisted of riders who have made 
the most progress in horseman- 
ship during the past year. Horse- 
manship classes were judged on 
hands, seat, and general horseman-

By M. L. Combs, President 

We are intensely interested in approving for admission to the 
college only those students who will be happy here and who 
can and will adjust themselves to the way of life at Mary 
Washington College. No student, therefore, should enter this 
college until she familiarizes herself thoroughly with the social 
standards, regulations, and traditions. It is obviously true that 
no college can adjust itself to the standards of individuals., Every 
student, therefore, is expected to adjust herself to the standards, 
regulations, and traditions of the college. In brief, all students 
are expected to conform to the accepted standards of refined 

The Honor System is a hallowed tradition and has been in 
effect over a hundred years at the University of Virginia. The 
Honor System implies that a student is trustworthy and will 
not violate her pledged word or commit a dishonest or dishonor- 
able act in connection with her college life or classroom work. 
Every student entering the college is required to sign a pledge to 
the efffect that she is familiar with the Honor System and that 
she will conform to that System so long as she is a student at 
this college. Students are expected to adhere to a high standard 
of conduct, and not need to be reminded constantly of detailed 
rules and regulations. The administrative authorities and mem- 
bers of the faculty rely upon the student's sense of honor and 
strive always to appeal to her better self. 

Mary Washington is interested in life at its best and strives 
always to stimulate clear thinking, high ideals, and wholesome 
and gracious living. In this connection, we can do no better 
than to quote from a feature article on the college appearing in 
the Chicago Tribune on February 4, 1945: "The atmosphere is 
refreshing and youthful and rather gay. Academic standards are 
high and Mary Washington girls are '20th Century' in the ways 
that count and are most enchanting in young girls." 


By Edward Alvey, Jr., Dean 

To the Members of the Freshman Class: 

It is a pleasure to welcome you as students of Mary Washing- 
ton College of the University of Virginia. I hope that you will 
enjoy your stay here and will take full advantage of the oppor- 
tunities offered for liberal and cultural development. 

Our records indicate that your class is the most carefully 
selected group academically that we have yet enrolled. Your 
achievements in high school have ranked you in at least the 
highest one-third of our graduating class. You have been highly 
recommended by your principal and others. We have every reason 
to believe that you will be successful in college. However, it all 
depends upon you. 

Education is a co-operative process. Both instructor and stu- 
dent have reciprocal responsibilities. Strictly speaking, all educa- 
tion is self-education in that it depends upon the interest, activity, 
and response of the learner. Learning cannot be "poured in" as 
water into a jug. The learner himself must be alert and respond. 
It is in him that the neural pathways are established and those 
attitudes, appreciations, understandings, and abilities that we 
classify under the general heading of "learning" or "education" 
are developed. 

Consequently, I urge you to make the most of your opportuni- 
ties here. The standard of accomplishment required is relatively 
high. And yet. every effort will be made to help you attain it. 
Before registration faculty advisors will assist you in making the 
best selection of courses. They will also be glad to help you 
with problems that may arise throughout your freshman year.

Each of your instructors is ready to help you in making satis- 
factory progress in his course. Do not hesitate to ask his aid if 
you do not understand the assignments or if you are having dif- 
ficulty with the work. Then, too, all of us in the administrative 
offices are at your service. Please let us know if we can help you. 

I wish for all of you a happy and successful career in college. 
I hope that four years from now we may number you among 
the ever- increasing list of graduates of Mary Washington Col- 
lege of the University of Virginia, a group of young women who 
have sought as their goal intellectual development, scholarly 
attainment, and social and moral responsibility. 


This, the last issue of the BULLET for 1945-46, is the 
issue sent to all incoming Freshmen of 1946. It contains useful 
information as to location of buildings, historical sketches, and 
many other items we hope will be of personal interest to each of 

We, the upper classmen of the college, welcome you. We 
welcome this opportunity to introduce you to our campus and 
its traditions. On your arrival next autumn all may seem strange. 
We, the BULLET staff, hope that this issue of paper will help 
you in getting adjusted and settled in your new home. 


A little over a hundred years ago, when Oberlin College 
opened, women were admitted to its preparatory school, and four 
years later, women were admitted to the college classes. This is 
usually considered the genesis of higher education for women 
in the United States. Since then education in the institutions of 
higher learning has been expanding. The positions and respon- 
sibilities which are and will be filled by the woman college 
graduate are numerous and ever-increasing. 

It is, therefore, the manifest destiny of young American wo- 
manhood to understake the challenge which has been opened 
for her. The goals for which she may strive are numerless and 
varied; she is her own and man's equal. 

While a student here at Mary Washington of the University 
of Virginia, the college girl should be living life at its best and 
be stimulated toward "clear thinking, high ideals, and whole- 
some and gracious living." 

You. the Class of 1950, must pause to consider the fact that 
the college which you have chosen to attend is one which is still 
in its formative years. You too are to share in the background 
of your perhaps-alma mater, and you are helping to make firmly 
established traditions upon our beloved Hill. You not only re- 
ceive an heritage, but you shall be among those to pass that 
heritage on to the classes who will follow us and you. 

Our alma mater will become more endeared to all of us as 
the years go by; her traditions will grow more and more mean- 
ingful; "still all the world will hear us say, We're mighty proud 
of Alma Mater — " E. S. E 

This is a plug for your Bullet .of 1946-47. The Bullet is eager to 
raise the caliber of its journalism. Journalism as it is used here in- 
cludes not only writing but all the other phases of a college periodical. 
Circulators, copyreaders, typists, artists, photographers, ad-girls— all 
work without mention, but all are an integral part of The Bullet. 
Through a new system of application in the fall semester, we hope to 
get the best writers from all four classes of M. W. C. However, no 
tryouts can show dependability, persistence, initiative, loyalty. And 
these are the qualities Which The Bullet at its best demands of its staff. 
If you can bring with you the will to work for a first-rate campus 
paper, The Bullet can find a place for you.

Outweighing every other,

Mother's Day was honored here 
on campus in devotionals last 
Sunday at 5 P. M. in Monroe au- 
ditorium. The curtain was opened 
far enough to reveal a picture of 
"Mother." She was represented by 
Mrs. Hearn, who wore an old 
fashioned dress, a bonnet, and 
held a rose in her hand. In keep- 
ing with the theme "Songs My 
Mother Taught Me," by Dvorak, 
was sung by Ann Lynch, and 
"Mother Macree" was sung by 
Wadell Leacock.

Make Bare Rooms 
More Like Home 

The Freshman c:ass has happily 
made its will and left to the in- 
coming freshmen their rooms in 
the dorms. They left little else, 
unfortunately — they have stripped 
the rooms of all the things that 
made them familiar and pretty. 
But they have decided that a few 
helpful suggestions will make it 
easier for the new* occupants to 
make their rooms attractive. So 
listen to the Voice of Experience! 
The wise frosh will bring only 
one set of bed linen and a blanket 
with her and have whatever others 
are required sent to her when she 
knows what her address will be. 
In your rush to get here, don't for- 
get soap and towels. Bring some 
with you. 

Your rooms will contain single 
beds with springs, mattresses, and 
pillows, dressers, study tables, 
chairs, bookcases, and built-in 
closets, but don't bring too many 
decorations with you. You'll want 
to consult your roommates. Here 
are some suggestions you might 
wish to discuss with them: 


Literary Leaf 

1. As soon as you can, after 
having talked over colors, mater- 
ials, etc., with them, rush down 
town ~and purchase some good- 
looking Bates bedspreads before 
they are all gone. Don't tell anyone 
where you are going or they might 
get there first and you'll be out 
of luck! If possible, get an extra 
spread or two, cut them up, and 
you will have matching drapes for 
the windows. This is the easiest 
and most attractive way to deco- 
rate your room. It is better not 
to bring a bedspread with you — 
your roommates will want to help 
you plan a color scheme. 

2. If you find that drawer 
space isn't adequate, get yourself 
an orange crate as you did at 
camp and cover it with some 
pretty material and put it at your 
bedside. With a radio, ashtray, 
and a few pictures on top, it will 
make your habitation quite home- 
like, it's nice to have a knife, fork, 
spoon, plate, and soup bowl. An 
alarm clock (you'll hate it on dark 
winter mornings, but it will get 
you to class on time), a tin bread 
box, an extension cord, and a 
dresser scarf are also useful, you'll 

3. Those popular fuzzy animals 
are nice too— the bigger the bet- 
ter. Dogs, cats, horses, mules, 
cows, anything will harmonize on 
your pillows as long as it's cute. 
Bookends can be used freely— we 
do study occasionally — and any 
little knicknacks that don't take 
up much space might make your 
room prettier. Don't overdo it 
though, for it's amazing how clut- 
tered a room can get, especially

Cardboard boxes have been used 
for wastebaskets, but the results 
are neither charming nor practi-

nothing so hard to find as your 
white laundry bag when it is in the 
midst of a hundred other white 
ones. Make a "different" one your-

the kind that "hits you in the eye

COMING HOME by Lester Cohen 
Pittsburg— the city of steel— is 
vividly pictured in this book by 
Lester Cohen. Its fire, its life, its 
vibrating, pulsating heart is the 
center of the world to the main 
character, Joe Drew, a Marine. 

The book deals chiefly with his 
return to Pittsburg from Guadal- 
canal, his love for the Polish 
girl, Stella Witowski of the mill 
district, and his bitter conflict 
with injustice and political rackets 
in the mill area of the city. His 
dogged persistence in setting right 
that which is wrong is as heart- 
warming as the word "demo- 
cracy" itself. 

The picture of the misery, un- 
fairness, and deadening futility 
in the lives of the mill workers, 
who "took little chance, tried to 
get on their own, then the depres- 
sion or something hit 'em, and 
back to the mill"— can only in- 
spire hot indignation and a feeling 
of pity in the heart of the reader. 
COMING HOME, although per- 
haps not a literary masterpiece, 
has in its very sincerity, enough 
to make a powerful book. 
The BLACK ROSE by Thomas B. 

The moving from England after 
the Crusades to the Orient of Kub- 
lai Kahn is the foundation of the 
historical novel, THE BLACK 
ROSE, by Thomas B. Costain. 

It is the story of a young Eng- 
lish nobleman who fights his way 
to the heart of the fabulous Mon- 
gol empire, and returns to find 
that he must choose between an 
English heiress and a girl of the 

The course of the narrative is 
marked by swift action in which 
the characters are so completely 
alive and the background of the 
period is so vividly painted, that 
the reader finishes the book with 
the sense of having actually lived 
in the Middle Ages.

Talk about velvet! You should 
hear Perry Como or Frank Sina- 
tra's recording of "They Say It's 
Wonderful." Both are tops in all 
departments. Como's is a little 
more dreamy with an oldie "If 
You Were the Only Girl" on the 
back, but Sinatra's is equally 
good with another song, "The Girl 
I Marry," from Irvin Berlin's 
score, for the musical, "Annie, 
Get Your Gun." 

A "DON'T MISS" item is Woody 
Herman's strictly whistle-bait re- 
cording of "Wild Root" and "At- 
lanta, G. A." 

Margaret Whiting has done a 
swell follow-up for her "Might As 
Well Be Spring" with a twosome, 
"All Through the Day" and "In 
Love In Vain" from "Centennial 

Summer," the Twentieth Century 
Fox movie. 

Carmen Cavallaro has put the 
proper emphasis on the ivories in 
his recording of the memorable 
"Warsaw Concerto" and "A Love 
Like This." 

And who could forget "Patience 
and Fortitude!" The Andrews 
Sisters suggest it as a motto we 
should all remember, and Count 
Basie does it as a jive spiritual. 
Good are both records and the idea 
is a pre-exam uplift. 

J. and J. Record Shop currently 
has Sinatra's "They Say Its 
Wonderful" La Shore's "I Got 
Lost in His Arms," Sammy Kaye's 
"I'm a Big Girl Now," Benny 
Goodman's "All the Cats Join In," 
the Andrews Sisters "Patience and 
Fortitude" and many more.

Off -Campus Girls 
Greeted by Director 

The college administrator who 
is the official friend and adviser 
of students who live in off -campus 
homes is Miss Margaret Swander, 
director of student personnel. Miss 
Swander's message to students 
who will live in town follows: 

"I am happy to take this oppor- 
tunity to welcome all girls attend- 
ing Mary Washington College of 
the University of Virginia who 
will live in local homes. You are 
just as much a part of the col- 
lege as the girls who live in the 
dormitories. You will participate 
in the same activities, attend the 
same social events, and be under 
the same rules and regulations as 
the students who reside in dor- 
mitories. The only difference is 
that you will sleep in an approved 
home instead of a college resi- 
dence. You will find companion- 
ship in your off-campus home, for 
there will be at least one other 
college girl where you live. In 
some cases there will be a group 
of girls and you will almost have 
a small dormitory of your own. 
Your town hostess is anxious to 
help you fit into your new environ- 
ment and will always be interested 
in your success in college. You 
have a definite responsibility to 
make satisfactory adjustment to 
your new surroundings. With un- 
derstanding and a sincere desire 
to surmount the petty difficulties 
which arise, I know you will have 
a satisfying year. Please feel that 
I am a very special friend who is 
always ready to talk over any 
problems or questions which may 
bother you. I am just as eager as 
you are to have your college days 
at Mary Washington filled with 
intellectual achievement, satisfy- 
ing friendships, and the develop- 
ment of a pleasing personality. 
You have my best wishes for a 
successful college career. 
(Miss) Margaret Swander" 

Next year's Sophomore presi- 
dent, Harriet Scott, hails from 
Bridgetown, Va. She's about five 
feet six inches tall with long blond 
hair and brown eyes. She selected 
Mary Washington because her 
sister was graduated here in 1944, 
and now that she is here, Scotty 
says she likes it very much. In 
her own words, "The girls are 
all swell and the campus is per- 
fectly beautiful." 

She's majoring in biology and 
likes it better than anything else. 
Last year she won honorable men- 
tion in the National Science Ta- 
lent Search conducted by Westing- 
house and has honorable member- 
ship in the American Association 
for the Advancement of Science. 
She loves outdoor sports such as 
riding, boating, swimming, and ice 
skating. She enjoys sewing too, 
surprisingingly enough. Her fa- 
vorite animals are horses and dogs 
— but not the ones on the campus. 
She much prefers the country to 
the city and last summer worked 
as a farmerette. She'd like to do it 
again this summer".

likes to visit New York and New 
England in the summer, but she 
prefers to live in Virginia. When 
she was younger she liked to visit 
the museums in New York but 
now she thinks the Astor roof is 
the best place there. She certainly 
enjoys the Midshipman's Vesper 
Service at Riverside Church, too. 
Lois is a member of a vocal trio

do recreational work when she 
graduates too. She has thoroughly 
enjoyed her three years at M.W.C. 
and says she likes best her friends 
and the spirit on the campus.

friends as "Van." 

Study occupied most of the time 
she spent in the Marines, it seems. 
Her active duty began on April 
20, 1944, at Hunter College in New 
York. Here, training consisted of 
drilling, military courtesy, organi- 
zation, and the study of weapons 
and their tactics, airplane identi- 
fications, aptitude tests, and inter- 

A stiff course for a "mere wo- 
man," but the women Marines 
had even more to accomplish. 
After taking competitive exams, 
Van was sent to radio school at 
Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. 
Classes were eight hours a day. 
Taking the same classes with 
Navy and Marine V-12 students, 
she had a course something like

With training finished at Miami

other Women Marines, did com- 
munications work at Cherry Point, 
Marine Air Station in North Caro- 
lina. Messages were sent to planes, 
ships at sea, and shore stations 
from this communications center. 
Romance has a way of creeping 
into the lives of even the busiest 
people, and Florence Smith (that's 
Van) married Corporal W. H.

tember, 1945, and entered Mary 
Washington in January. 

Van is a science major and was

of the Virginia Academy of 
Science. She will attend the Uni- 
versity of Missouri next year with 
her husband, who will be a jour- 
nalism major there.

Alpha Phi Day 

Alpha Phi Sigma day was held 
Friday, May 10, when a recogni- 
tion service took place in chapel. 
Blue and white ribbons were worn 
by those who made Dean's List 
for the past two quarters. Green 
and gold ribbons stood for mem- 
bership in Alpha Phi. 

Seniors on Dean's List for the 
past two quarters received pink 
carnations. Those on the Dean's 
List all quarters were given white 
carnations; straight A's for past 
two quarters, red. 

Seniors who have made the 
Dean's List for entire four years 
of college are Ellen Bono, Gerry 
Borgett, Julia Bridges, Lois Cole- 
man, Mary Ellen Darst, Jene 
Haley, Edna Harris, Elizabeth 
Harrison, Betty Jane Jones, Vir-

Interested in athletics? A state 
ment from the Athletic Associa- 
tion lists the sports in which you 
may participate if you wish and 
indicates the important part that 
organization plays in campus life 
at Mary Washington: 

"The Athletic Association of 
Mary Washington College of the 
University of Virginia has existed 
on this campus for, over twenty 
years. It is a member of the na- 
tional organization, 'The Athletic 
Federation of College Women.' 

"The purpose of this organiza- 
tion is to promote wholesome and 
healthful activity, to stimulate an 
interest in athletics, to create a 
spirit of good sportsmanship, and 
to cooperate with other campus 
organizations in promoting and 
maintaining the highest standards 
of college life. 

"Any student enrolled at Mary 
Washington College is eligible for 
membership, provided she partici- 
pates in at least one of the acti- 
vities offered each quarter. This 
shouldn't be difficult because of 

the variety of sports and activities 
offered during the year. Just a 
few of these are hockey, archery, 
tennis, golf, volleyball, basketball, 
fencing, swimming, riding, hiking, 
and bowling. 

"The program of A. A. during 
the year includes an orientation 
for the Freshmen, a tea for all 
members, a Benefit, several infor- 
mal Saturday night dances in the 
gym, 'Devil-Goat' Day in the 
Spring, and the A. A. Banquet at 
the end of the year. 

" 'Devil-Goat' Day is a tradition 
dating back to about 1925. The 
idea is this — those students enter- 
ing in an even year are termed 
'Goats,' while those entering in 
odd years are 'Devils.' Each year 
the rivalry between the two clans 
is great; each side trying for 
points in each of the many con- 
tests sponsored during the school 
year. On 'Devil-Goat' Day each 
team appears in full force wear- 
ing their respective colors — ■ 
'Devils' red and white; 'Goats' 
yellow and green. Points are 
awarded for spirit and school 
sportsmanship shown at the pep 
rallies, 'flag rush,' and other com- 
petitive games. 

"At the annual A. A. Banquet, 
school letters and sweaters are 
awarded to students who have 
earned the required number of 
points. Points are awarded to A. 
A. members for participation in 
activities, sports, and clubs spon- 
sored by the Athletic Association. 
"The Point System and other 
information concerning A. A. may 
be found in the 'Bayonet,' the 
college handbook."

(Ed. Note— There follows a let- 
ter from Miss Lillie Turman, Dean 
of Freshmen, addressed to our 
friends, the incoming first-year 
students. And may we add, 

friends, that it contains some hon 
est-to-goodness good advice. We 
know. We were freshman too a 
while back.) 

Dear Mary Freshman: 
Come September, everyone here 
at Mary Washington will be on 
hand to give you a sincere and 
wholehearted welcome. We hope, 
and indeed we are sure, that you 
will find many of your dreams for 
the next four years coming true 
while you are here on our beauti- 
ful campus and among our friend- 
ly group of students and faculty. 

Just now we are anxious to be 
of as much help to you as possible 
in the preparations which you will 
be making during the summer 
for your life here. 

Many of these preparations, such 
as getting your wardrobe ready, 
will involve tangible things. In 
this issue of The Bullet you will 
find valuable suggestions regard- 
ing this and many other things. 

Aside from these preparations, 
and fully as important, you should 
make other preparations for your 
new life away from home. Some of 
you have spent summers away 
from home in camp and have al- 
ready learned some of the things 
you must learn if you are to live 
happily and successfully with lots 
of other people. 

You should recognize now the 
fact that you will undoubtedly feel 
some pangs of homesickness, and 
school yourself now as to the man- 
ner in which you will meet that 
problem if and when it presents 
itself. Surely you will miss the 
established friendships and the fa- 
miliar routine of your home, 
school, and community life as you 
have known it. No compliment 
would be implied to the dearness 
of all that, if you so not miss it 
and wish for it again. However, 
if you are to grow into real adult- 
hood, you will recognize the logic 
of many new things in your life 
as the years pass and you will 
prepare yourself to go forward in 
welcome to the changes and to 
make the best adjustment possible 
to each new responsibility of adult- 
hood as it presents itself. 

In a few years at the most you 
will probably be taking on the re- 
sponsibility of being wife, mother 
and homemaker and, as such, you 
will need to be ready to help pro- 
vide the security, care, and fine 
life for your own that your par- 
ents have provided for you. Your 
new life, at college, away from the 
shelter and care of your parents' 
home can be a nice bridge over 
which you travel the final miles of 
childhood and adolescence to the 
responsibilities of adulthood. So 
— be prepared to meet the prob- 
lem of homesickness in a con- 
structive way. Face the issue and 
cope with it successfully. If you 
run home, away from it, you will 
be demonstrating only an unwill- 
ingness to advance on into adult- 
hood as an adult. 

You will find yourself facing the 
problem of getting acquainted with 
many new people, and of living 
congenially with them. School 
yourself well in being reserved 
when it comes to forming an opin- 
ion of another person. Some of 
the people to whom you are at 
first very much attracted, you 
will soon lose interest in; others 
whom you may not have noticed 
at first, you will seek out finally 
for friends. Be reserved about 
forming opinions of another; be 
more reserved about expressing 
your opinions — unless they are 
complimentary. Seek to find and 
to help center attention on the 
good qualities of those with whom 
you are associated. You yourself 
will grow in richness and you will 
be helping others cultivate their 
best qualities. 

Successful group living demands 
that each individual give up some 
degree of personal freedom so that 
the needs and desires of the group, 
rather than the individual, be met 
to best advantage. You will need 
to prepare yourself to be one of 
many. You will not have the spot- 
light of attention centered on your- 
self so much in a group as you 
have at home. Be ready to fol- 
low others and to help in a project 
even though you are not the lead- 
er. There are many times when 
even the strongest leader is mere- 
ly a willing helper to another 

Be considerate of those around 
you and take your full share in 
responsibilities that make for more 
pleasant living for everyone. Keep 
up, or form, good housekeeping 
habits; be meticulous in the care 
of your person and wardrobe. 
Maintain a cheerful, encouraging 
attitude. Do not belittle yourself 
by engaging in petty gossip. 

Be prepared to give yourself 
every unselfish advantage possible 
in making the adjustment to your 
new life. Recognize the fact that 
you will be competing, scholasti- 
cally, with other students who have 
ranked at least in the upper 
third of their respective high 
school classes. Indeed, the major- 
ity of them have ranked in the 
upper fourth and many of them 
have ranked in the upper tenth. 
You will have to be more consci- 
entious than ever about your 
preparations if you are to com- 
pete successfully with this group. 
Take the minimum average load 
of work and do a splendid job 
with that; later, if you wish, you 
will be ready to take a heavier 
load. Be selective at all times in 
regard to extra curricular activi- 
ties and seek to go into those 
which provide the opportunity for 
the release of your best abilities. 
Be especially selective at first: It 
is much better to do one small job 
well than to only touch on service 
in many. 

Give some thought to the prob- 
lem of presenting yourself in a 
complimentary way and as an in- 
dividual. Introduce yourself and 
seek the acquaintance of others 
with whom you come into contact. 
Give thought to the need for 

'Get Acquainted' 
Course To Be Given 
Incoming Freshmen 

To help Miss Freshman make 
the transition from high-school to 
college life as pleasant and profit- 
able as possible, the college ad- 
ministration has arranged to offer 
during the fall semester a course 
that will enable her more easily 
to become accustomed to her new 

Under the general supervision 
of Miss Margaret Swander, di- 
rector of student personnel, va- 
rious members of the faculty will 
meet with the freshman class 
once a week during the coming 
fall semester to impart advice and 
instruction of the kind not easily 
to be found in textbooks. 

The first meeting of the course 
will take place at 9:30 a. m. on 
Wednesday, September 18, in the 
auditorium of George Washington 
Hall and subsequent meetings are 
to be held at 12:30 p. m. on Thurs- 
days in the auditorium of Monroe 
Hall. Every freshman student will 
be required to attend. The topics 
to be discussed and the names of 
the professors who will talk about 
them follow: 

Sept. 18 — How to adjust to your 
roommate(s) and your professors, 
Dr. Eileen Dodd; Library facilities 
including the Mendel Museum, 
Virginia Room, etc., Dr. Quenzel. 
(These two topics will be present- 
ed at 9:30 a. m. in George Wash- 
ington Auditorium.)

Remember that though you are 
one of many you will eventually be 
known, and judged, by the care 
with which you groom yourself 
physically, mentally and spiritual- 
ly and by the quality of your 
thought and effort as a citizen of 
your group. Take great pride in 
yourself and your heritage and 
seek always to live in a manner 
complimentary to that heritage. 

Sincerely, and with best wishes, 
Dean of Freshmen. 

Several "representative" fresh- 
men girls were asked to make an 
inventory of their complete ward- 
robe for the entire year. The re- 
sults were compared and a sample 
wardrobe prepared. It is hoped 
that this will be of help to you 
who are coming in next year. It 
is to be remembered that this 
sample represents the entire year's 
wardrobe. The smart girl, unless 
she lives at a great distance, and 
brings a wardrobe trunk to store 
out-of-season clothes in, will bring 
her clothes in relays: what she 
needs from September to Thanks- 
giving or Christmas; from Christ- 
mas to Easter; and from Easter to 
June. Most of the girls count on 
using many of the clothes already 
on hand, adding only such new 
items as are necessary to meet 
expected needs and to add interest 
and freshness to the wardrobe. 
It is nice to save some "wardrobe 
money" to add in something new 
at vacation times. 

Good grooming and meticulous 
care of clothes make the simplest 
wardrobe a "choice" one. 

There will probably be some 
warm weather for about the first 
two weeks of school. Bring just 
enough summer clothes for this; 
leave the rest at home until 
The sample wardrobe follows: 
Suits: 4 (usually of casual style 
that can be worn on most any oc- 

Dresses: 4 casual or sport— wool 
or rayon; 1 dressy black crepe, 
jersey, etc.; 2 dressy print or 
solid color crepe, rayon, jersey; 9 

Coats: 1 raincoat (all girls say 
this is a MUST); 1 winter dress 
coat; 1 winter casual or sport 
coat for 1 campus wear; 1 spring 
dress coat. 

A fur coat can be used in this 
climate, but a cloth coat is a much 
wiser choice. 

Sweaters: 9 (most of girls have 
both cardigan and slip over styles, 
but seem to favor the cardigan). 

Blouses: 9 (silk, rayon, cotton; 
some tailored, some dressy) 3 

Skirts: 8 (plaid, tweed, plain 
wool); 3 cotton. 

Jackets: 2 (planned to be worn 
interchangeably with skirts in 


Nov. 14— How to make the 
most of your appearance by care, 
of clothes ,hair, skin, etc., Home 
Economics Club. 

Nov. 21— The history of Mary 
Washington College, Mrs. J. M. H. 
Willis, former faculty member of 
M. W. C. 

Nov. 28— No meeting because 
of the Thanksgiving holiday. 

Dec. 5 — How to improve your 
speaking voice, Mr. Harold Weiss. 

Dec. 12— Taking advantage of 
the general opportunities college 
offers for broadening oneself in 
art, music, literature and religion, 
Dr. Rollin H. Tanner. 

Dec. 19 — Resume of course and 
evalutation, Miss Margaret 


Hats: 2 winter-one dressy, one 
casual; 2 spring-one dressy, one 
casual; 1 "rain" hat. Most of the 
girls buy one of the MWC beanies 
which may be purchased at the 
College Shoppe for $1.25. It is 
rumored that next year it will 
be possible to buy ones that not 
only have MWC but also the Class 
numerals on them. 

Formal wear: 2 evening dresses 
—jersey, crepe, velvet, velveteen, 
taffeta; 1 dinner dress of soft non- 
rustling material. This or an even- 
ing dress of like material is best 
for Lyceum numbers; 1 evening 
bag designed to be used with any 
of the above. 

Only a small percentage of the 
students bring evening wraps with 
them. Most of them make one of 
their coats double for evening 

Shoes: 1 pair loafers; 1 pair 
saddle shoes; 1 pair rubber boots 
(everyone says this is a Must, 
too); 1 pair suede wings; 2 pair 
dress pumps; 1 pair sport pumps; 
2 pair summer play shoes; 2 pair 
evening slippers (ballet slipper 
style is very popular just now — 
but probably not a conservative 
buy); 1 pair bedroom slippers. 

Socks and hose: 16 pair socks 
(most girls prefer white wool or 
cotton, rather than many colored 
pairs); 2 pair nylons, or 6 rayon 

Lingerie: 12 pair knit cotton or 
rayon panties; 7 bras; 4 silk or 
rayon, knit or cloth, snps; 3 cot- 
ton slips; 4 pair cotton pajamas — 
tailored preferred. Some students 
like, and have, flannel pajamas 
for winter wear. There should be 
two pair of these, if any; 1 (Quilt- 
ed or flannel preferred) bathrobe; 
1 garter belt; 2 pantie girdles. 

Accessories: 2 pocket books; 1 
billfold (a Must, for everyone 
carries some money and no one 
wants to be bothered with a whole 
pocketbook all the time); 3 pair 
dress gloves; 1 pair wool gloves 
fori winter campus wear; 2 pair 
long gloves for formal afternoon 
or evening wear. The knit jersey 
ones are less expensive and are 
more easily taken care of; 2 
scarves to use with suits, coats; 
several belts to add change to the 
casual dresses; 1 umbrella; several 

Playclothes: 3 pair shorts and 
3 matching shirts (for tennis, 
etc); 1 two piece bathing suit for 
sunbathing and the Outdoor Pool 
in the early Fall and late Spring, 
if the weather is warm enough; 
1 pair jeans or slacks — certainly 
not necessary. 

Shorts and sport shirts are used 
chiefly for tennis and other sports 
which do not require a special 
costume, and for dormitory room 
lounging. Jeans may be used only 
for lounging in dormitory room. 
"Students are not to wear shorts, 
slacks or any abbreviated cos- 
tumes." If riding is to be taken 
the student should bring jodpurs,

SGA, YWCA, Class oi '49-A11 
Welcome Newcomers To MWC 


S. G. A. 

Dear Freshmen: 

On behalf of Student Govern- 
ment Association I'd like to wel- 
come you to Mary Washington 
College of the University of Vir- 
ginia. Student Government, as you 
may know, is one of the organi- 
zations on campus of which you 
automatically become a member. 
It was organized in 1924 for the 
establishment of student self- 
government onj campus. The as- 
sociation was assisted in its work 
of adyising students by a Joint 
Council composed of the Dean of 
the College, the Dean of Women 
and a member of the faculty-at- 
large together with the officers 
of Student Government Associa- 
tion. Later, however, the Dean of 
the College and the Dean of Wo- 
men were relieved of their duties 
as members of the Council be- 
cause their positions in the col- 
lege administration required that 
they be at liberty to advise stu- 
dents in a manner not governed 
by the standards of the associa- 
tion. Two members of the faculty 
were then appointed to replace the 
two Deans. 

The association now functions 
under this same plan of organiza- 
tion but to this has been added 
the precious heritage of the Uni- 
versity of Virginia — the Honor 
System which provides that all 
students shall act honorably in all 
relations and phases of studerl 
life. Lying, cheating, stealing or 
breaking one's word of honor 
under any circumstances are con- 
sidered infringements on the 
Honor System. The Honor Council 
meets only in the event of presen- 
tation of a case of someone's 
breaking the honor system, and is 
composed of the four class presi- 
dents as well as the House Presi- 
dent of the dormitory in which 
the accused girl resides. Next 
year's Honor Council consists of 
Jean McCausland, Senior Class 
President, Lois Saunier, Junior 
Class President, and Harriet Scott, 
Sophomore Class President. Tne 
Vice-President of the Senior Class 
will act as fourth member until 
the Freshman President has beon 
elected. We, however, wish to 
place stress upon the fact that 
Honor Council is not a part of 
Student Government. It is an or- 
ganization which functions sep- 
arately from Student Government 
Association. The sole purpose of 
Student Government Association 
is to advise and guide and to as- 
sist in making the college career 
of every Mary Washington girl a 
rich and profitable experience. 

Student Government Associa- 
tion as an organization sponsors 
a number of campus projects dur- 
ing the academic year. It holds a 
reception at the beginning of each 
year for all new students. It super- 
vises Freshman training and the 
organization of the Freshman 
Class, sponsors an annual Faculty 
Day, and sponsors jointly with 
the Athletic Association a Song 
Contest and with Y. W. C. A. 
Loyalty Night. 

The Association meets every 
Monday night to plan student act- 
ivities and to act upon cases of 
infraction of college regulations. 
Next year a new member will be 
added to the Council as represen- 
tative of the off-campus students. 
With the aid of this member we 
hope to expand our activities so 
that off-campus students will be 
brought to play a larger part in 
campus affairs. 

The following persons will serve 
as members of Student Council 
for J next year: 

Officers: Nelle Dawes, ' Presi- 
dent; Adelaide Brail, Vice Presi- 
dent, Nancy Hite, Secretary; 
Sarah Armstrong, Treasurer. 

House Presidents: Marijane 
Lindenberger, Westmoreland; Bar- 
bara Hough, Madison; Mabel 
Royar, Ball; Ann Barnes, Custis; 
Jean Kirby, Virginia; Irene Tay- 
lor, Betty Lewis; Anna White, 
Willard; Laulie Richardson, Cor- 

Representatives: Marilee Hicks, 
Senior Class; Justine Edwards, 
Junior Class; Anne White, Sopho- 
more Class; Jean Jones, Town 

Ex-Officio Members: Margaret 
Crickenberger, President Y. W. C. 
A.; Peggy Pancoast, President 
Athletic Association; and Lila 
Kinsey, Freshman Commissioner. 

Student Government welcomes 
you to Mary Washington College! 
Nelle Dawes 


Y. W. C. A. 

Hi, Freshmen! 

At the moment you don't know 
who's writing this, but you'll know 
the first minute you arrive at the 
railway or bus station in Frede- 
ricksburg, or if you drive, the 
first minute you arrive on the 
campus, for we'll be right there 
dressed in white and ready to give 
you a helping hand and a hearty 
welcome. Any time you are lost, 
uncertain, or just want someone 
to talk to during your first few 
days here, just ask one of the 
girls in white and she will do her 
best to set you right, because she 
will be one of the many Y. W. 
C. A. girls who have returned 
early to school for that very pur- 
pose — to help you. And you might 
as well get acquainted with the 
girls in white right then, for the 
Y girls will be concerned, directly 
or indirectly, with your welfare 
and your activities throughout the 
next four years. 

Helping you get settled and re- 
gistered won't be the only things 
we'll do for you during that first 
week. About Tuesday or Wednes- 
day your "Big Sister" will be look- 
ing you up and you'll have an op- 
portunity to spill your troubles 
to her, to reproach her for what 
she forgot to tell you and thank 
her for what she did tell you in 
your correspondence during the 

Then on Friday evening, at an 
interdenominational group meet- 
ing, you'll have a chance to meet 
informally the minister who serves 
the church of your denomination 
down town. On Sunday, Big-Little- 
Sister Church Day, your "Big Sis" 
will be over to your dorm to drag 
you out of bed and take you to 

The following week, just as 
you're becoming a big-time ope- 
rator getting to class on time be- 
cause you finally know which 
building is Chandler Hall, hearing 
a professor's lecture, and, in gene- 
ral just as you are fast on your 
way to become a full-fledged col- 
lege student, you'll be taken down 
a notch or two at the Friday- 
night "Kid Party." Your Big 
Sister will rally around to help 
you plait your hair, shorten your 
skirt, and take you where you 
can strut your stuff and compete 
for the prize to be awarded the 
"cutest" kid in school. Keep the 
party in mind when you're pack- 

After this, freshmen activities 
begin to settle down somewhat, 
but "Y'' is still around. Freshman 
groups, in which you will have an 
opportunity to become acquainted 
with other freshmen and enjoy 
the fellowship of working and 
playing together, will be formed. 
Each of these groups is guided by 
an upperclassman, known as a 
Senior Commissioner, and each 
group will elect a president of its 
own called the Freshman Com- 
missioner. To become a Freshman 
Commissioner is one of the highest 
honors a freshman can achieve. 
These groups meet frequently and 
sponsor many activities. 

The "Doll Show" is one of the 
affairs staged by these freshmen 
groups. Each group makes one or 
two complete dolls (which are 
given, eventually, to an orphan- 
age) to compete for honors in the 
doll show. You'll have a swell 
time making these dolls, body and 
all. It sure isn't easy! 

By means of a program in which 
guest speakers have a prominent 

part, all M. W. C. students have 
an opportunity to enjoy the in- 
spiration of Religious Emphasis 
Week, usually held in November. 

During December you'll enjoy 
"Peanut Week" and have a chance 
to be a "peanut" and have some- 
one do nice things for you. You'll 
also be a "shell" and do nice 
things for someone else. It's a 
rare opportunity to exercise your 
ingenuity in being kind and 

We hope you'll attend the "Y" 
Benefit in February and enjoy the 
little entertainment we'll whip up 
(no effort at all, don't you know.) 

These are some of the principal 
things "Y" does throughout the 
year, but we'll be with you steadily 
through such activities as Chapels 
and Convocations, Saturday night 
"pop" programs, Sunday evening 
dcvotionals and every-evening Ves- 

So you see, you might as well 
say "Hi" to us right now to your- 
self, because we'll be right with 
you all next year. 

The very best to you in your 
college life, and we'll be waiting 
to greet you. 

Y. W. C. A.

Dear Freshmen: 

The Class of '49 takes pleasure 
in welcoming you to Mary Wash- 
ington College — and not simply 
because your arrival will mea^n 
that we have become sophomores! 
You may find your first few days 
here bewildering — we did — but you 
also come to treasure a vast col- 
lection of "first week" stories as 
we do, and you will remember 
forever the autumn loveliness of 
the Hill. Mary Washington is a 
friendly place, you will become 
oriented to your new environment 
quickly, and you will be amazed 
next June that your first year is 
over so quickly. 

When you come to college you 
make a contract to receive, and 
more important, to contribute — 
to your college while you are here, 
eventually to your community, 
your country, and to mankind. 
You will be qualified, and obligat- 
ed, to contribute in a much higher 
degree than if you had not been 
given this privilege. And it is that 
— not a right nor a gift, but a 
privilege which you will appre- 
ciate. Your contributions will be 
what you make them and will in- 
escapably govern what you re- 
ceive. Here, if you will, find 
friendship and knowledge and for- 
mulate a lasting sense of values. 
College is a challenge. We know 
you will meet it well. We shall 
be glad to help you if we can and 
if you will permit us. 

Sara Bowser, Freshman 
President of the Class of '49. 

Make New Friends 
Of Frosh Roommates 

Who is to be your roommate? 
The Dean of Freshmen has some 
splendid advice to offer: 

"It is the opinion of the Dean 
of Freshmen that an opportunity 
for richer development is provided 
if the student seeks to make new 
friends and so does not choose to 
room with someone with whom 
she is already acquainted. How- 
ever, any new girl may request 
to be placed with another one or 
two designated students of her 
class if she wishes, and may re- 
quest a placement in either of the 
two freshmen dormitories — Wil- 
lard Hall or Cornell Hall. 

"Mrs. Charles Lake Bushnell, 
Dean of Women, handles all room 
placements. She will make every 
effort possible to meet all re- 
quests as to roommates or dor- 
mitory placements which are 
mailed directly to her office by 
Saturday, June 29. 

"Please, if you are not making 

a special request, do not write 

to her requesting information as 

to names and address** of room- 

What's In a Name— 

Each day hundreds of students 
pass through the doors of the var- 
ious buildings on the campus, 
knowing, of course, the name of 
the building they are entering but 
seldom stopping to consider the 
significance of that name. Few 
realize that some of the greatest 
men and women in American his- 
tory are represented at Mary 
Washington College by the build- 
ings named for them. 

The land on which the college is 
situated, commonly called "The 
Hill," was formerly owned by 
Fielding Lewis, brother-in-law of 
George Washington, and was call- 
ed Marye's Heights. Father James 
Marye, who gave the hill its name, 
was one of the first pastors of St. 
George's Episcopal Church in 
Fredericksburg and conducted a 
school which Washington and 
James Monroe attended. 

The person for whom the college 
itself is named is well known, but 
how many of us have discovered 
that Mary Ball Hall is also named 
for Washington's mother? 

The first building that was 
erected on the campus was Frances 
Willard Hall, better known as just 
plain "Willard.'' At some time 
during your college career some- 
one may explain to you that 
Frances Willard was a great tem- 
perance leader, but few will be 
able to tell you that she was also 
dean of women at Northwestern 
College, where she organized the 
first student government associa- 
tion in America for girls. 

The original classroom building 
was called Russel Hall in honor 
of the first president of the col- 
lege, Dr. E. H. Russell, but the 
name was later changed to Monroe 
Hall, after James Monroe, whose 
home was near Fredericksburg 
and whose law office, still stand- 
ing, is one of the city's historical 

Betty Lewis Hall is named for 
George Washington's sister who 
inherited from her husband the 
land on which the college is situat- 

The second president of the col- 
lege, Dr. R. B. Chandler, tried for 
a number of years to obtain per- 
mission to construct a building 
where practice teaching could be 
conducted on the hill. His wish 
was finally fulfilled when Chand- 
ler Hall was built in 1928, but 
this building is now used by the 
Science Department. 

Mary Custis, wife of Robert E. 
Lee and great-granddaughter of 
Martha Washington, and Mary 
Ball, mother of George Washing- 
ton, are both commemorated by 
buildings in the Tri-Unit, as is 
Dolly Madison, wife of President 
James Madison. Dolly Madison 
was famous as a hostess and while 
her husband was Secretary of 
State, she acted as "First-Lady" 
for President Thomas Jefferson, 
as well as for her husband during 
his term as President. 

The senior dormitory is named 
for Westmoreland County, the 
original name of the county in 
which the college is located and 
the county in which Washington, 
Monroe, and Lee were born. 

The newest building on the 
campus is the E. Lee Trinkle 
Library, named for a former gov- 
ernor of Virginia and a president 
of the State Board of Education, 
who was a frequent visitor on the 

Hamlet House was the home of 
Dr. W. N. Hamlet, a member of 
the first faculty of the college. 
The names of buildings reflect 

mates or dormitory placement. 
This work cannot be completed 
until late in the summer. Her of- 
fice cannot handle the extra work 
involved in such requests. 

"Every effort is made to have 
each student most happily placed. 
If you are not satisfied when you 
get your placement on arrival, 
wait until an announcement is 
made regarding possible changes, 
before making any request for a 
change. The opportunity for the 
adjustment of placements will be 
given about the last of the first 
week of school. Make every effort 
for congenial relationships with 
your roommates until then." 

Clubs On Campus 
Offer Opportunity 
For Service & Fun 

By Barbara Thomas 

Since a freshman should know 
which of the many campus clubs 
she is privileged to join, we offer 
a brief description of those that 
are open to her. But may we offer 
a word of advice? If one joins 
these clubs heedlessly and indis- 
criminatingly, she is apt to find 
that her interest in them and her 
pleasure in them are apt to 
dwindle. If you become a member 
of a club in whose activities you 
are actually interested, your re- 
lations with your fellow members 
will be happy and cordial, and 
that club will become a source of 
valuable and wholesome recrea- 
tion to you. 

As for the clubs themselves- — 

In the religious fields there are 
clubs sponsored by Episcopalian, 
Presbyterian, Catholic, Baptist, 
and Methodist girls. These clubs 
are the Canterbury Club, the 
Westminster Foundation, the New- 
man Club, the Baptist Student 
Union, and the Wesley Founda- 
tion. They are all very valuable 

There is also a great variety 
of musical groups. The band, 
dance orchestra, and symphony 
orchestra are eager to recruit 
girls who are proficient in the 
playing of some musical instru- 
ment. The Glee Club and the Col- 
lege Choir offer pleasant recrea- 
tional activity and are a lot of 
fun for girls who are interested 
in singing. 

The Bullet, which is the college 
newspaper, and the Epaulet, the 
college literary magazine, provide 
fields of activity for students who 
like to write. Would-be journa- 
lists may also try out for appoint- 
ment to the staffs of the Battle- 
field, the college annual, and the 
Bayonet, the handbook. 

For the girl who is interested in 
athletics, almost every type of 
sport is sponsored by various 
athletic clubs. There is the Terra- 
pin Club for swimmers, the Outing 
Club for hikers, and the Hoof- 
prints Club, the Cavalry Troop, 
and the Cadet Corps for riders, 
and the Concert Dance Club for 
students who are interested in the 
dance as an art-form. 

There is a variety of depart- 
mental clubs too — the Forensic 
Club, the Athaeneum, the Art 
Club, the French Club, the -Home 
Economics Club, the Spanish Club, 
and others. 

If you are interested in drama- 
tics — acting or backstage work— 
the Mary Washington Players 
offers you the opportunity to show 
your talent. 

There are honorary and social 
organizations as well, but you 
will learn about them when you 
arrive on the campus. 

Misc. Information 
Given On Baggage 

A few suggestions for our 
freshmen friends concerning ex- 
press, parcel post, baggage, etc.: 

All parcel post mail is held for 
delivery until the student has 
rented a box at the College Sta- 
tion Post Office. This cannot be 
done until Monday, Sept. 16. 

Express is held at the Railway 
Express Office until the college 
is officially opened on Sunday, 
Sept. 15. Deliveries to designated 
addresses or to the dormitory to 
which the student has been assign- 
ed (this information is obtained 
by the express company from the 
office of the Dean of Women) are 
begun early Sunday morning, but 
two or three days should be al- 
lowed the company for handling 
the enormous quantity of baggage 
before inquiry is begun. 

Therefore, the incoming student 
should bring with her a set of bed 
linen, a blanket, a towel, and other 
items she will need immediately. 

much of the history of Mary 
Washington College and of the 
surrounding country. 



Tuesday, May 21, 1946 


These members of the graduating class composed this year the 
membership of the Cap and Gown Club, senior honorary society 
dedicated to the advancement of the spirit of service and fellowship 
among university women. They are: First row, left to right — Alice 
Lynch, Dorothy Klenck, Lelia Marsh, Libba Harrison, Janice Worsley. 
Second row — Shelley Earhart, Julia Bridges, Virginia Oquist, Ellen 


(Editor's Note: What are the 
qualities that lead to a successful 
college career? This question was 
asked of a group of girls who 
should know — the Cap and Gown 
Club, the senior honorary society 
of Mary Washington College. 
Their reply follows.) 

"Cap and Gown Club is a senior 
honorary society whose members 
are selected during the last quart- 
er of their junior year on the basis 
of scholarship, leadership, per- 
sonality, and service to the school. 
The candidates for membership 
must have a scholastic average 
two points above the class aver- 
age. The purpose of the organiza- 
tion is to promote college loyalty, 
to advance the spirit of service 
and fellowship among university 
women, and to stimulate and de- 
velop a finer type of college wo- 
man. New members are elected 
by outgoing members. 

"Members of this club were 
asked to suggest a list of char- 
acteristics which they felt would 
lead to success in college. The 
list would of course include the 
usual character and personality 
traits — cooperativeness, sense of 
humor, friendliness, sincerity, in- 
tellectual interest, and school 
spirit. Intrinsically, however, these 
campus leaders agree that one 
would better lay stress upon 
broadnes of viewpoint, perseve- 
rence, and HARD WORK, in gene- 

"Further, selflessness, working 
for the betterment of the school 
or community rather than for any 
personal glory, is high on their 
list. They emphasize the futility 
of being a "joiner" when one is 
entering her college career, or of 
becoming too attached to a clique. 
Concentration on one or two extra- 
curricular activities is highly de- 

"Any freshman entering college 
may find these suggestions of 
value, for the girls who compiled 
them have been elected to the 
highest offices on the campus and 
have achieved successful college 
careers. These signposts may help 
point the way to a happy and 
profitable college life." 

Dance By Light 
Of Generator 

In a flurry of swishing skirts, 
waltzing feet, and laughter, the 
Junior-Senior Ring Dance has 
come and gone and has been a 
great success. The dance was pre- 
sented in Monroe Gym on Satur- 
day, May 11. The tea dance was 
heid from 3:30 to 5:30, with the 
evening dance from 9 to 12. 

Due to the coal strike, the junior 
class officials were made busy 
keeping up with the latest news 
on whether or not the dance could 
be given. However, it was on Fri- 
day, when the news came that 
there would be no dance, that in- 
genuity took over. It was decided 
that a generator could be used 
to generate the electricity, thereby 
operating the dance completely 
under the college's own power. 
Since the current of the generat- 
ing machinery and that in George 
Washington Auditorium were not 
of the same kind, the celebration 
was scheduled to be given in Mon- 
roe Gym. 

Decorations were varicolored 
umbrellas and green branches 
placed around the balcony. Re- 
freshments, which were punch and 
cookies, were served in the body 
balance room. 

During the ring figure, the 
juniors and their dates walked 
through trellised arbors, while 
the seniors looiced down from the 
balcony. The next dance was re- 
served for junior couples only. 

For both the afternoon and 
evening dances, Johnnie Satter- 
field's orchestra played. 

Minnesota university has the 
largest veteran enrollment of any 
college in the country with 5,500 
vets going to school there. It is 
followed, in order, by New York 
university, University of Pitts- 
burgh, Texas University, Univer- 
sity of Washington and Southern 

Miss Day, Alumna 
Parties In Manila 

Manila — Miss Jane Day, daugh- 
ter of Mr. and Mrs. P. B. Day of 
Buena Vista, Va., was a guest at 
a dance and reception given re- 
cently at the 5th Replacement De- 
pot, located south of Manila, for 
American Red Cross girls newly 
arrived from the United States. 

Miss Day, a former student at 
Mary Washington Collece in 
Fredericksburg, is now at the 
Paranaque Disposotion Center near 
Manila awaiting her assignment 
to one of the many ARC Clubs in 
the Philippines.

Position Of Spain 
Discussed at Forum 

No answer was forthcoming 1 , 
in the forum of May 2, held in 
Monroe auditorium, to the ques- 
tion "'Is the policy of the United 
States toward the Franco regime 

An informative discussion of 
Spain was provided by Mr. Bryson, 
Dr. Whidden, Miss Rosalind Mar- 
shall, and Miss Virginia Oquist. 

Mr. Bryson said that Spain is 
a small Europe with diversified 
climate. The variety of minerals 
in, the country — copper, lead, mer- 
cury — caused a great deal of rival- 
ry between the Axis and the Allies 
during World War II. The U. S. 
was particularly interested in 
pyrite and rn ercur y- 

Mr. Bryson continued by saying 
that Spain in a unified state 
would rise considerably as a na- 
tion. The petty jealousies among 
sections keep Spain in an economi- 
cally desperate condition. 

Absolute monarchy, Miss Oquist 
said, didn't accomplish much for 
Spain in the way of unification 
after World War I. In 1923 a dic- 
tator gained control of Spain but 
unrest continued. The Spanish re- 
public began in 1931 but there 
were too many political parties to 
function well in a democracy. 

The People's Front Party mark- 
ed the second half of the period of 
Socialist Republican power. That 
was when General Franco started 
an uprising in Spanish Morocco 
which spread to the mainland. 
There is still doubt as to whether 
Franco was associated with Fas- 
cists under the Phalangist party, 
the speaker continued. It may 
have been that he only desired to 
revive the old form of dictator- 
ship when he headed the uprising. 

Miss Marshall opened her part 
of the discussion with the ques- 
tion "How should Spain be 
treated?" There are two beliefs 
as to the position Spain held 
during the war, she said. One fac- 
tion contends that behind her neu- 
traility, Spain was helping the 
Axis. The other faction holds that 
Franco was using his connections 
with the Axis only to further the 
interests of Spain. 

Letters have recently come to 
light in which Franco told Hitler, 
"Spain will in the future attach 
herself to Germany.'' Hitler was 
to give Morocco and Iran to 
Spain. In return, Spain was to 
give Germany her friendship. It 
is now believed that the main rea- 
son Germany didn't invade Spain 
was the impoverished condition of 

Dr. Whidden said that Spain be- 
gan a policy of conciliation at the 
end of the war. A bill of rights 
similar to our own was incorpor- 
ated into the government, and for- 
eign corresponents were allowed 
to send out uncensored messages. 

Spain has very recently been 
accused by Poland of being a 
threat to world peace, but the 
Spanish government has allowed 
a five-man commission to enter 
the country to investigate the 
charge that Spain is harboring 
German atomic scientists. The 
United States seems to have three 
possible courses of action, the for- 
um decided: (1) to support active 
intervention in Spain's affairs; 

(2) to carry out the present in- 
vestigation and bring moral pres- 
sure to bear if necessary; and 

(3) to adopt a "laissez-faire" 

IRC Sends Cable 
To Paris Conference 

In an effort to contribute to the 
cause of world peace, the Inter- 
national Relations Club recently 
sent the following cablegram to 
the Conference of Foreign Minist- 
ers in Paris: 

"Members International Rela- 
tions Club, Mary Washington Col- 
lege, urge conference to use all 
efforts to create mutual under- 
standing, good will, cooperation; 
find solution of problems of peace. 
Youth of the world expects no less 
than this."

Radio Waves 

Radio — a magic word which' 
opens fields of education, music, 
entertainment, and mechanics. 
Radio came to Mary Washington 
in this school year 1945-46, in 
the form of our own campus sta- 
tion— WMWC. 

* * * 

As we look back over the year" 
we see much to praise, much to 
improve. This year was the trial 
year, and though the announcers, 
directors, and engineers have been 
through deep waters, they all feel 
it has been worth every bit of it. 
The transmitters burned out, the 
telephone men cut in; programs 
ran short; radio actors failed to 
show up; in spite of all these mis- 
haps the station went on. 

* « » 

Some of the unusual broadcasts 
attempted this session have been 
original dramatic scripts as Ruthie 
Meyer's, "Heavenly Daze," quiz 
programs, a round-table discus- 
sion entitled "I Have Felt a Pre- 
sence," weekly broadcasts intro- 
ducing nations such as Russia, 
China, Turkey, Cuba, and Eng- 
land. There have been daily cam- 
pus news programs, and recorded 


* * * 

Among the personalities pre- 
sented for your identification have 
been Dr. Cabrera, Virginia Pinch- 
beck, and Toni Campbell. Dorothy 
Klenck won a record for guessing 
correctly the name of Toni Camp- 
bell, writing it on a postcard, and 
mailing it to WMWC. 

* * * 

Sometimes programs were not 
able to go out over WFVA "be- 1 
cause of technical difficulties," but J 
WMWC on 600 was on daily. Per- 
haps the reception was bad at 
times, but the technician always 
showed up soon afterwards to dis- 
cover the cause of the trouble. 

* * « 

"Ether may be used as an anes- 
thetic or it may have an aesthetic 


* * * 

Station WMWC, in every way it 
can, tries to serve the students, 
faculty, and all the listeners by 
sending "over the air" programs 
of interest and service to all. This 
is the last week of broadcasting 
for 1945-46, but next year WMWC 
will again fill the air with music, 
news, drama, and other programs 
— all written, directed, announced, 
and controlled by Mary Washing- 
ton College students. 


Bonnie Gallimore and Betty Jo 
Patteson attended the Kappa Al- 
pha barn dance at the University 
of Richmond this weekend. 

* * * 

Edwina Cummings, a former 
MWC student, and her mother 
were guests on campus this week- 
end. They flew from their home in 
Warren, Ohio. 

* * * 

Mildred Quimby became the 
bride of William J. Harrison dur- 
ing the Easter holidays. Mildred 
entered MWC last January but did 
not return to college after her 
marriage. The Harrisons are now 
residing in Lansdowne, Pa. 

* * * 

Sallie Crowell spent this week- 
end in Washington, D. C, as the 
guest of Lieutenant and Mrs. L. 
C. Josephs. Mrs. Josephs is the 
former Mim Newell, who attended 
Mary Washington College. 

* * ■ 

Janet Ryder recently spent a 
weekend as the guest of Barbara 
Chisholm at Barbara's home in 
Fairfax, Va. 

it * * 

The engagement of Kitty Pal- 
mer and Fielding Marshall has 
been announced. Kitty's home is 
at Culpeper and her fiance's at 

* * * 

Evelyn White was a guest at the 
University of Virginia last week- 

* * * 

Among those who spent last 
weekend at Annapolis were Bev 
Parker, Betty Worsham, Betty 
Bennett, Jane Clatterbuck and 
Bobbie Foley. 

Nancy Silver Wins 
Camp Scholarship 

Nancy Silver, a rresftman from 
Darlington, Md., has been awarded 
the Danforth Foundation Scholar- 
ship to the American Youth Lead- 
ership Training Camp at Shelby, 
Mich., from July 29 to Aug. 11. 

College students and young peo- 
ple from more than 40 states and 
Canada attend the camp, where 
the program is designed to develop 
leadership. Informational talks, 
lectures, and discussions help ex- 
plore the campers' capabilities. 

Miss Silver has been active in 
"Y" and was president of her "Y" 
group. She is a member of A. A. 
and has taken part in student 
plays, teaches a primary class in 
the Sunday School of the Presby- 
terian Church, belongs to the 
Westminister Fellowship, and has 
been active in equitation activities. 
The faculty committee which re- 
ceived the applications and made 
the award was composed of Miss 
Swander, Mrs. Hearn, and Mr. 

things if you use your ingenuity. 
If you like to hang up your tele- 
grams, snapshorts, invitations, and 
bids, get a piece of wood about 
three feet long or longer, some 
string, and some bright material 
the width of the piece of wood and 
as long as necessary. These are the 
makings of a bulletin board on 
which you can pin anything from 
a corsage to a pin-up boy. A heavy 
piece of cloth of approximately the 
same size will also do the trick.

A note on expenditures — In ad- 
dition to the college fees as stipu- 
lated in the current catalogue, the 
student should allow about $20 
for books; $25 for dues — class, 
club, and welfare; and $150 for

toilet articles, school supplies, 
stationery, etc. These amounts are 
estimated as being adequate for 
the entire year.

Tuesday, May 21, 1946 



The new officers of the MWC 
Cavalry Troop were elected last 
week by the Hoof Prints Club. 
They are Captain Anne Everett, 
First Lieutenant Phyllis Derigon, 
and Second Lieutenant Marilee 

The Annual Spring Horse Show 
sponsored by Hoof Prints went 
over with a big splash last Satur- 
day in spite of the cloud burst 
which drenched riders and spect- 
ators. A bit of rain doesn't keep 
horse fanciers indoors when there 
is some high falutin' riding to be 
seen. The jumps floated and the 
horses bogged down to their hocks, 
but there was so much excitement 
and enthusiasm nobody seemed to 
mind. In fact Chuck-aluck en- 
joyed it immensly. Anne Williams 
was up on Chuck as they ap- 
proached a large mud hole. Before 
Anne knew what was up — Chuck 
was down. His knees just buckled 
under and he started rolling, (or 
should I say swimming!) Anyway, 
those of you who were'nt there 
should have heard the crowd roar 
as Anne stood in blank amaze- 
ment watching her mount make 
like a fish in the puddles of mud. 

Many graduate jocks came from 
afar to witness the show and it 
was certainly good to see them. 
Sue Wilson, who founded Cavalry 
and was its first Captain was 
fondly welcomed. Graduates of the 
Class of '45 were: Ruth Hurley, 
Sue Fuss, Betty Walsh, and Mar- 
tha Hollaway. 

It didn't take Betty long to take 
over her old job as mess sarge. 
Due to the electricity conditions 
the Hoof Prints club decided to 
have a Sunday morning breakfast 
at the barn instead of the usual 
party which followed the show. 
Guest or no guest Betty was de- 
termined to get her hands to the 
stove. There wasn't to much ob- 
jection as all the old jocks well 
remember her culinary powers. 
Thanks a lot Walsh for the ham, 
sausage, bacon, eggs, omelets and 
every thing else that was on the 
menu. Of course many thanks also 
go to the food committee and its 
Chairman Mabs Royar for a grand 

Lee Marsh, believe it or not, 
has finally mustered her courage 
and turned out to be quite a horse 
lover. She and Joe are now the 
great buddies. Besides being a 
newly accomplished equestrian and 
our ex-Stu Gu President she has 
shown her abilities as a cook. And 
to show as a good cook with the 
rather antiquated facilities of the 
tack room-kitchen is really an 
achievement for any chef. 

As school draws to a close, 
plans are bein drawn for next 
summers pack trip. Joyous 
thought! Mr. Walther announces 
that if plans move along unaltered 
and pack trip will be scheduled for 
the last ten days before school 
opens next fall. Any Mary Wash- 
ington girl who is in good health 
is eligible to go on the pack trip. 
She doesn't have to know how to 
ride for she will learn. If you are 
interested see Mr. Walther for 
particulars. The last two trips 
have been very successful and any 
pack tripper can testify that it is 
a wonderful way to end up a sum-
