he stands in the graveyard silence of a frozen, barren 
basin, bereft of color and wind-whipped into harshness 
at the foot of glacier- covered mountain peaks. Powerful winds 
sweep away overcast skies to unveil jagged snowcapped moun- 

nature forms and land forms. The 
Himalayan trek locked me into thinking 



tain tops which cut into sapphire blue 
skies. A 21-day trek brought her to this 
destination, a trip which evoked emo- 
tions inside her from fear to elation. 
Feeling victorious from the sheer accom- 
plishment of getting to the top, she stops 
and absorbs the stark beauty of the 
landscape. 

Agnes Scott art professor Terry 
McGehee spent part of her sabbatical 
leave in November 1982 trekking in the 
Himalaya mountain range to Mount 
Anapurna. Her life-changing experience 
produced arru'ork which was first exhib- 
ited at the College during January and 
now travels to Houston, Tex., for a 
show in April. 

Terry's desire to do the 150-mile trek 
came from her sense of adventure and 
love for the outdoors. "I'm just now ad- 
dressing the importance of my love of 



about land forms in ways I've never 
dreamed about. It's been a year since the 
trek, but I may be addressing landscapes 
for the next 10, 20 years. Even my nudes 
turn into landscapes because I see the 
body, the human figure, as part of the 
land." 

Terry is not a typical artist, she will ad- 
mit. She does not make art to decorate 
the walls of Atlanta law offices and bank 
lobbies, although much of her work is 
displayed in such places. Her purpose in 
creating art is to express her feelings that 
result from her personal experiences. 

"The older I get, the more important 
art becomes to me — not only because 
it's a form of expression — but because 
it's where I do a lot of my healing. It's

College? 



For most women, a 27'year tenure as teacher and Dean of 
Agnes Scott College would bring ample career satisfaction. 
But at 54, Dr. Julia T Gary yearned for change. This June 



she leaves Agnes Scott to enroll as a student in 
Emory University's Candler School of Theology on 
her way to becoming a Methodist minister to the 
elderly. 

"It's a long way from chemistry teacher and dean to 
minister, but I'm off! I'm excited, I'm offi" she ex- 
claims. Her decision to retire early and begin a new 
career surprised everyone but her pastor, the Rever- 
end Garnett Wilder, of Decatur First United Metho- 
dist Church. Since she joined Decatur First in 1971, 
she has worked in every leadership positic^in available 



to a lay person, including chair of the administrative 
board, which is the ruling body of the church. 

"She's a marvelous Christian person," says Dr. 
Wilder. "She's been a wise counselor to me and a 
source of strength to this congregation. She brings to 
her tasks a high degree of intelligence, Christian com- 
mitment and mature judgment." 

Dean Gary would like to work with the elderly as a 
staff person of a large church or for one of the de- 
nomination's agencies. She will be 58 when she grad- 
uates from theology school, but she says, "I'll ha\e 10

good years — that's a relatively short career. But if it's 
good in quality, what difference does it make — what 
difference?" 

She has few illusions about the difficulties she will 
face. "One of my students asked me if my ego could 
stand it — no large office, no secretary. I've enjoyed

the prestige of the deanship of Agnes Scott thoroughly 
and completely. Now, I'll be with people the same age 
as my students," she says. "1 wonder if I can still write 
a term paper?" 

There was nothing dramatic about her decision, the 
dean explains. "I have been restless for the past three 
or four years. I was interviewed for other deanships 
and college presidencies, but none sounded good to 
me." 

Her answer came little by little. "I asked myself, 
'Who in the world is better able to do something dif- 
ferent?' I have no responsibility to anyone. I'm finan- 
cially able to survive for three years. I have a strong 
sympathy for the elderly," she adds, smiling. "My 
knees are creaky — I'm getting there myself." Her 
students tell her she'll be doing "peer counseling." 

"This is a long way from anything I ever thought 
about," says Dean Gary. "It was not a career that was 
available to us when I came along. Today the number 
of women in the ministry is growing by leaps and 
bounds. I know I'll encounter some negative feelings. 
After all, I'm a woman and I'm olden But I was the 
only woman chemist in graduate school. I coped with 
it then and I can do it again." 

Dean Gary counts the Return to College Program 
as her most notable achievement at Agnes Scott. 
"In this program, the College has made a posi- 
tive statement about its commitment to women. This 
is a college for women; this is what we are about." 
This quarter the program has 59 women, she notes. 
"They are a real addition to the College." 

She also takes pride in her work overseeing the $1.5 
million renovation of Buttrick Hall and the $3 million 
renovation of Campbell Science Hall, for which she 
participated in the selection of the architect and 
contractor. 

In recognition of her contributions to the College, 
particularly to the study of science, the Trust Com- 
pany Bank has named in her honor the chemistry lec- 
ture room, where she spent much of her teaching 
career at the College. The room's renovation was 
funded by the Trust Company of Georgia Founda- 
tion, the Walter H. &l Marjory M. Rich Memorial 
Fund, the Florence C. &. Harry L. English Memcirial 
Fund and the Harriet McDaniel Marshall Trust. 

Dean Gary's career includes service under three 
Agnes Scott presidents, each of whom found her 
invaluable. "She has a strong mind and is very 
frank and honest," said Dr. Wallace Alston, who led 
Agnes Scott from 1951-1973. "If she finds her point of 
view doesn't prevail, she'll go along with the group. 
She's a team perscin." 



'*Ji 



Dr. Marvin Perry Jr., Agnes Scott president from 
1973-1982, described Dean Gary as a "fine scientist 
and better read than most humanists. She was a gooc 
right hand to me. It's typical of her outlook and 
energy to start a new career She brought to her post ; 
marvelous sense of humor and fun," he remembered. 
"She can laugh at herself." 

She has had to. Most Black Cat skits feature an im- 
itation of her distinctive North Carolina twang. She 
once turned the table on one of her imitators, Mary 
Gay Morgan '75, by bringing down the house with a 
takeoff on the student in a Black Cat Revue. 

Dean Gary credits her unfaltering good humor to 
her gardening. She lovingly tends some 30 rosebushes 
every day. "You can't think bad thoughts when you're 
digging in the dirt," she says. 

•ulia Gary was well-fitted for the deanship 
both by birth and by training," Dr. Alston 
believes. The daughter of a Henderson, N.C, 
banker, Dean Gary attended Randolph-Macon 
Woman's College. "She will sing the alma mater in 
Latin with no encouragement at all," quips Bertie 
Bond, a friend and associate at Agnes Scott. Dn Gar> 
earned a master's degree from Mount Holyoke Colleg 
and went on to receive her doctorate in chemistry 
from Emory University. Dr. Alston promptly hired 
her as a chemistry instructor at Agnes Scott. 

"I thought I would stay a year or two," she recalls. 
"But the College got a hold on me. I liked the school 
and the people, and the teaching was exciting." 

When Dr. C. Benton Kline, then Dean of the Fac- 
ulty, needed help, Julia Gary filled in for him two 
afternoons a week. In 1966, she spent a sabbatical 
year at the University of Illinois as visiting scientist. 
When she returned, she had to choose between chem 
istry and the deanship when Dr. Kline left in mid-yeai 
Dn Alston tapped her as acting dean. 

"Some people voiced real objections, real reserva- 
tions about a woman as dean, but Dn Alston though 
it might be all right," she remembers. She was made 
Dean of the Faculty in 1969. The title was changed in 
1979 to Dean of the College. 

Looking back, she sees more flexibility now in the 
academic programs and the students' social life. 
"The faculty is much younger and now half men 
and half women. When 1 first came, there were a grea 
many strong, unmarried women. Now the number of 
single women is small." The faculty reflects the outsid( 
world, she says. "The faculty now makes a li\ing 
wage. The students are not \ery different — they, too, 
reflect the changes taking place in the world." 

When she leaves her post in June, she plans to 
spend six weeks cleaning out the bookshelves and "re- 
orienting my house to a new kind of life." Claiming 
she hasn't had a vacation in a long time, she also 
plans to sit down and put her feet up. 

"Dean Gary has served this College well and she 
will be greatly missed," President Ruth Schmidt told 
the College community upon announcement of Dean 
Gary's resignation. "I will miss her both personally 
and professionally. I salute her for her great spirit, her 
contributions to the life of this College and the exem- 
plary person that she is. She leaves us w^ith a rich heri 
tage of commitment to the highest standards of 
excellence in academic and extracurricular life." ■

T-«HEY RANGE IN AGE FROM 
their twenties to one who is 64. 
They take one course or a full load. 
They may be married, divorced, single, 
widowed. Some have small babies; 
others, grown children. Many have jobs. 
These are the women who make up the 
Return to College Program at Agnes 
Scott. 

Begun in 1975 with two students, the 
RTC program has grown to enroll 59 
women this winter quarter. The pro- 
gram, designed for women beyond the 
usual college age of 18 to 22, welcomes 
all women who qualify for admission, re- 
gardless of previous college e.xperience. 

Marilynn Mallory, Director of the 
RTC Program, believes most of these 
students come to Agnes Scott because of 
its academic excellence, supportive at- 
mosphere and size. Because returning to 
college can be frightening, RTC students 
find the College's small si:e and helpful 
atmosphere a more gentle transition 
back to school than returning to a 
university. 

Ms. Mallory says that RTC students 
"compare very well, after the first quar- 
ter hurdle, with traditional students, be- 
cause of the RTC students' maturity and 
determination to succeed." 

Most RTCs begin slowly by taking 
one or two courses the first quarter. If 
the student and Agnes Scott suit each 
other, as they usually do, Ms. Mallory 
says the student is "caught in a wonder- 
ful bit of magic," and after two quarters 
is usually enrolled for a degree.

GUISE BAILEY, AN "A" STU- 
dent, will graduate in June with a 
major in English. The mother of 
four sons, ages 23, 21, 19 and 12, she 
came to Agnes Scott after two successful 
years at DeKalb Community College, 
where she edited the literary magazine. 
She enrolled at Agnes Scott in the 
spring of 1981 because the English de- 
partment was recommended by several 
faculty members at DeKalb. Ms. Bailey 
had visited the campus in the fall of '80 
on an RTC visitation day. While here, 
she attended Professor Mary Butler's 
class on Dryden, Swift and Pope. Ms. 
Bailey says, "I was impressed with the 
discussion in class, the teacher, the stu- 



dents and their attitude in the class- 
room, and the whole environment of 
the school." 

Because her work here has gone so 
well, Louise Bailey is working on a two- 
quarter, 10-hour independent study of 
William Faulkner with Professor Linda 
Woods. She hopes to attend graduate 
school in English or education and to 
teach secondary or junior college stu- 
dents, or to become a media specialist. "I 
would love to earn a Ph.D., but it's one 
step at a time right now^" 

Louise Bailey, like other RTC stu- 




-Bonnie BrouTi- 



dents, describes the RTC Program as 
marvelous. "The support system among 
RTCs and from the College is wonder- 
ful, especially for those feeling apprehen- 
sive. The only thing I regret is that I 
didn't come here sooner." 

BONNIE BROWN, IN HER 20s 
.and a junior, came to Agnes Scott 
in 1980 after several years of part- 
time study at Georgia State University. 
A friend at work told Ms. Brown about 
the RTC Program. 

"I am challenged academically by the 
intelligent, creative women here," she 
says. Although she is closer in age to the 
traditional students than to most of the 
other RTCs, she finds that her experi- 
ence makes her feel closer to the RTC 
students. But, she adds, "there is that 
point where the challenge of the school 



10 SPRING 1984 



Studentlife 



pushes us all together," whether tradi- 
tional or RTC. 

An art major and a member of the 
Arts Council, Ms. Brown is focusing on 
printmaking and praises both art profes- 
sor Leland Staven's flexible, supportive 
teaching and the print lab and 
equipment. 

"This is the first time since the eighth 
or ninth grade that I've put school first," 
she says. She likes her involvement with 
her school work and her college friends 
and calls this a special time because of 
her different perspective about being in 



cational consultant to area child devel- 
opment centers in Rochester's Head 
Start Program. 

One of two black RTCs here fall 
quarter, Karen Grantham sees black 
RTC students as "excellent role models 
for traditional minority students, be- 
cause they see the importance of an edu- 
cation to these older women." She also 
believes that her position as a black 
RTC senior resident benefits traditional 
white students who "might feel freer to

Andrea Kivi and Ale.xa Forte, seniors at 
Tucker High School, are planning to 
apply to Agnes Scott for admission next 
fall. They believe they would not be do- 
ing so had they not received joint enroll- 
ment scholarships from the College this 
year 

Although Agnes Scott started the 
joint enrollment program years ago, this 
is the first year scholarships were offered 
for the program which allows qualified 
high school students to take courses at 
the College. These new, merit-based 
scholarships cover the cost of tuition for 
one course, whether it be one-quarter or 
yearlong. 

Dr. Linda L. Woods '62, associate pro- 
fessor of English, proposed the scholar- 
ships in response to President Ruth 
Schmidt's Channels for Creativity Con- 
test. In her proposal. Dr. Woods said, 
"The exposure and goodwill that such a 
program would provide would be invalu- 
able. We would, of course, be benefitted 
by taking into our classes strong students 
who would improve the quality of the in- 
troductory level courses. . . . We have 
much to gain — and to give." 

Carter Hoyt, assistant director of ad- 
missions, oversees the program. She says 
it "recognizes the readiness of selected 
high school seniors to begin college work 
before graduation from high school." 

To be considered, a student must sub- 
mit a high school transcript, a record of 
SAT or ACT scores and a letter from her 
high school counselor giving school 
approval for specific courses, as well as 
the school's recommendation of the stu- 
dent. Students are apprcived for admis- 
sion to the program by the director of 
admissions and for entrance into specific 
courses by the dean of the college. Tlie 
joint enrollment students are designated 
as unclassified students, and the grades 
they earn at Agnes Scott go toward their 



'88: A JUMP AHEAD 



graduation requirements at their high 
schools and toward college credit if the 
grades are C or better. 

Andrea Ki\'i has completed her one- 
quarter course, General Psychology,', and 
says she "enjoyed the course, the profes- 
sor (Dr. Ayse I. Garden '66), and met a 
lot ot nice people in class." 

Alexa Forte, whose first language at 
home is French, is taking a yearlong 
freshman English course. "There is a lot 
more work and also more reward in this 
course compared to my high school 
courses," she says. "I like the whole at- 
mosphere here." Alexa has arranged her 
schedule to spend time on campus and 
has enjoyed getting to know Agnes 
Scott students. Her course work and her 
association with the students have 
changed her mind favorably toward 
single-sex institutions. 

Four other high school seniors re- 
ceived joint enrollment scholarships. 
They are Meg Bryant from Chamblee 
High School, who took Voice and Dic- 
tion; Mary Davis from Decatur High 
School, who is taking German 101; 
Shea Henson from Druid Hills High 
School, who is taking German 101; and 
Nancy Williams from Lakeside High 
School, who is taking English 101. 

The six students who received the 
scholarships for fall quarter reinforce the 
program's intent. While not all sLx plan 
to attend Agnes Scott next fall, four cif 
the six are applying to Agnes Scott and 
three of them would not have applied 
without the scholarship. 

All six of the students are enthusiastic 
about the scholarship program and ex- 
press great satisfaction with their ex- 
periences at the College. As Director of 
Admissions Judith M. Tindel '73 says, 
"The Joint Enrollment Scholars are a 
strong group ot students. . . . They are 
taking a very positive message about the 
College back to their high schools." ■

AGNES SCOTT ALUMNAE MAGAZINE 13 





, ^ore than 300 people gathered at Agnes Scott College Oa. 1.1983, 
to pay tribute to a very special man. John Flint, longtime employee 
of Agnes Scott, was 100 years old. Friends, family, alumnae, faculty 



and staff members packed Rebekah Re- 
ception Room. A three-layer chocolate 
birthday cake surrounded by a variety of 
hors d'oeuvres covered the banquet 
tables. Former Agnes Scott presidents 
Marvin B. Perry Jr. and Wallace M. 
Alston joined current president Ruth 
Schmidt to give special greetings to Mr 
Flint as the College presented him with 
a captain's chair inscribed with the Col- 
lege seal. 

He also received proclamations from 
President Ronald Reagan and state and 
local officials. His simple statement of 
gratitude drew a round of applause. 

Mr. Hint came to Agnes Scott in 1910 
as a janitor and worked his way to head 
waiter in the dining hall and head of 
cafeteria personnel. He says he often 
served 350 people a full-course dinner in 
an hour He was best known as the bell 
ringer, calling students to the table and 
wearing out several bells in the process. 

But he was also a gifted artisan. The 
intricate moldings in Rebekah Scott Hall 
reflect his design, and he dug founda- 
tions for and painted several campus 
buildings. A part of campus life, he 
would often go into the woods to gather 

logs for the students' fall bonfires or 
help students decorate the halls for 
parties and holidays. 
John Hint worked under Agnes 
Scott's first four presidents — all of them 
fine men, he says, although the College's 
first president, Dr. Frank Gaines, was "a 
little too strict for my taste." Dr. Gaines 
built a fence around the campus, and 
"he wouldn't let dogs or boys pass 
through." 

The modest son of a Covington, Ga., 
farmer and preacher, Mr Flint likes to 
lift his finger and say, "I haven't got that 
much against anyone in the world." He 
believes in living by the Bible and says 
he's satisfied with his long life. 

He enjoys recalling the day President 



Alston called him into his office and 
said, ""fcu're a good man, Mr. Flint. If 
I had a front yard and a back yard full 
of John Flints, I wouldn't have a prob- 
lem in the world." 

Mr. Flint has found few problems with 
Agnes Scott folk, either. "Good people, 
kind people, Christian-hearted people," 
he calls them, and though he is a devout 
churchman, he has always felt his calling 
was his work at the College. 

During his 60 years at Agnes Scott, 
Mr Flint claims he never took a vaca- 
tion day and was rarely sick. Besides his 
work at the College, he did odd jobs 
whenever he could. Many nights, he 
says, he painted until 3 a.m., only to 
sleep a few hours before going to work 
at the College at 6:30 a.m. 

Besides his affection for Agnes Scott is 
his deep love for his family. He first spot- 
ted his wife, Louise, when she was an 
1 1-year-old schoolgirl crossing the cam- 
pus to meet her mother, who worked in 
the custodial department. Mr. Hint re- 
members it as love at first sight, and he 
made up his mind to stay in Decatur 
until she was old enough to "receive 
company." Three years later, he asked 
her mother for permission to call on 
Louise, and in another three years, they 
married. 

"We had 79 years together," he says. 
"We each gave 100 percent to the mar- 
riage. That's pure love; that's proven 
love. If people would marry for love, it 
would be a blessed thing." 

The Hints reared their 1 1 ^^ 

children with the Bible as their V ^fe. 
guide, fielding problems during 
monthly meetings when the family 
prayed together. "No one ever left

angry," Mr. Flint recalls. Today's young- 
sters, on the other hand, cause him 
worry, and he regrets the lack of prayer 
and Bible teaching in public schools. "If 
we had those things, we would have 
much better conditions today. Thou- 
sands of families don't have time to pray 
with their children," he says. "The best 
thing is to have your children know 
what God means." 

Other things about modern life bother 
John Flint, too. The divorce rate shocks 
him, and he believes most people marry 
to get away from home without taking 
time to get acquainted first. "Where 
there is no love, there is no getting 
along," he cautions. 

But in spite of it all, he prefers today 
to the past. Life is easier today, he said, 
explaining that his life on the farm re- 
quired sunup to sundown work in fields 
of cotton, peanuts, soybeans and other 
crops. The quality of life for most blacks 

"If people would marry 

for love, it would be a 

blessed thinp,." 

is better now because of the civil rights 
movement, he added. Fifty years ago, he 
still had to run from white children as 
they hurled rocks at him, a 50-year-old 
man. He taught his children to survive 
prejudice by being nice to everyone, 
avoiding trouble and refusing to fight 
back. And although he credits Martin 
Luther King Jr. and John E Kennedy 
with making great strides toward free- 
dom for blacks, he maintains, "Christ 
one day will set the world free when he 
returns." 

John Flint has also seen progress in 
technology. Although 12-year-old John 
was scared the first time he rode in a car, 
his first plane ride was just dandy. "Old 
people used to tell children about the 
chariots in the sky — which is in the 
Bible — and a lot of people thought 
that's what the planes were," he says. 

Although Mr. Flint accepted planes 
for what they were, he still cannot be- 
lieve man has walked on the moon. 
"Science is a wonderful thing, but man 
ain't that smart." 

Mr. Flint still lives in the family home- 
place in Decatur with his daughter, Mis- 
souri Brown, his son Frank, and his 
grandson, Edgar Allen Flint. Most days 
he reads the Bible — often the book of 
Proverbs — scans the Atlanta Constitu- 
tion, walks his dog King and visits 
with friends. At 100, he says his 
greatest challenge is to be 
always "kind and loving 
to everybody." ■

leaps and pirouettes to study 
a new craze re-entering today's 
culture — folk dancing.

an, she spient two years travel- 
ing throughout Georgia and 
the Southeast to research the 
revival of folk festivals. Her 
work earned her a nomina- 
tion for the 1983-84 Georgia 
Governor's Awards in the 
arts for dance.

ing. "History is told in art

for gregariousness,

why folk festivals are 

such a hit." 

forms, and dance is the 
mother of art." 

"America is changing so 
fast," she says, "from an in- 
dustrial to an informational 
society." The process began in 
1956, she exp ains, when for 
the first time white-collar

cations when the Soviets 
launched Sputnik I, she ex- 
plains. Today, more than 60 
percent of the U.S. workforce 
deals with information for a i 
living — as teachers, com- 
puter programmers, clerks. 
The computer craze has pro- 
pelled this revival of the past 
and, according to Ms. Darl- 
ing, the revival is getting 
stronger. 

Professor Darling came to 
Agnes Scott with a master's 
degree in music from Florida 



16 SPIUNG 1984 



State University. She had 
tudied under such well 
:nown artists as Martha 
jraham, Alwin Nikolais, 
Vlvin Ailey and Marcel 
4arceau. 
Her research inspired her to 
reate a campus clogging 
roup called Dixie Darlings,

ent Ruth Schmidt's inaugu- 
ation last spring. Since then, 
bey have danced at the 
ellow Daisy Festival at Stone 



Mountain, the opening of the 
High Museum of Art and at 
the Great Scott Festival at 
Agnes Scott. 

During her travels, Ms. 
Darling interviewed three 
rural residents who were more 
than 70 years old and had 
lived in the same county for 
at least 30 years. She asked 
them how society had 
changed from when they were 
young. 

"None of them knew each 
other," she says. "\fet all three 
gave basically the same re- 
sponses. They said that 
times were harder 
then; less to eat, ■' 



less to wear, homes were not 
as nice. But all preferred those 
times to today They felt that 
there is a sense of 'hostility 
and isolation' in society today. 

"People are starved for gre- 
gariousness, non-isolation. 
That's why folk festivals are 
such a hit," Ms. Darling ob- 
serves. "If we were giving 
away gold, we couldn't pack 
any more people in some of 
the festivals." 

She found as many as five 
generations participating in 
folk dances performed at the 
festivals. This provided a 
chance for all age groups. 



races and genders to mingle, 
she thinks. "Dance is one of 
the few total mixers we have 
left in society" 
Modern dance evolved into 

"Dance is one of the 
few total mixers we 
have left in society." 

more isolation than previous 
dances, she says. For example, 
many amateur dances are per- 
formed without touching a 
partner, and professional 
dances are performed on stage 
apart fi-om the audience. 

"The audience does not 
want 'formal isolation' with 
the dancers on the stage and 












,.«. iM^' 



;. ,*f5'vv^4G^S SCOTT ALUMNAE MAGAZINE 17 



the audience off." She noted a 
closeness between audience 
and performer in folk dancing 
— in most performances, the 
audience practically moved 
on stage to see the 
performers. 

"Folk dances are 'people 
dances' and tell society about 
itself," Ms. Darling says. She 
found both secular and reli- 
gious folk dances. Southern 
black and Southern white 
dances. Southern white 
dances, derived from Euro- 
pean forms, included square 



dancing and clogging. South- 
ern black dances began in 
Africa but were influenced by 
slavery. They included the 
Buck Dance, the Juba, the 
Ham Bone, the Holy Dance 
or the Dance of the Holy 
Spirit and Saturday Night 
Jive. 

Ms. Darling learned that 
most black dances came from 
slave days when dances were 
in coded form. Out of slavery 
came numerous slave games, 
songs and dances, the only 
art forms available to the 



black slaves, she says. Because 
these art forms directly ex- 
pressed ongoing life processes, 
they were continually evolv- 
ing and changing. Blacks 
soon had a secret language 
which the white man could 
not easily understand. Using 
this language barrier to their 
advantage, blacks blended 
their own set of meanings and 
dialogue into the dances and 
games to act out their anger 
and frustration toward the 
white slaveholders, without 
fear of reprisal. 



"For example, in the Buck 
Dance, the 'bucks' were black 
slaves," Ms. Darling says. The 
white dance form of the soft 
shoe evolved from this dance. 

TTie Ham Bone is a coded 
dance form of hand pats and 
foot movements with music 
and lyrics. According to Ms. 
Darling, during slave days the 
white masters would take the 
choicest part of a butchered 
pig. The slaves got the rest, 
which they divided equally 
among themselves. The least 
desirable part was the back- 



LAST YEAR WHEN THE PULITZER 
Prizes were awarded, the Agnes Scott 
^community cheered for one of their 
own. Former student and now play- 
wright Marsha Norman earned the 1983 
Pulitzer Prize for Drama with her power- 
ful treatment of suicide in " 'night, 
Mother." 

"/ keep thinking what it is that might be 
worth staying for," wonders Jessie, the 
middle-aged, overweight daughter in 
'"night, Mother." "Maybe if there was 
something I really like, like rice piuiding or 
combread." 

Such intimate, yet ordinary conversa- 
tion carries the 90-minute dialogue be- 
tween a daughter bent on suicide and 
her loving, slightly dotty mother who 
tries to dissuade hen The epileptic daugh- 
ter has lost her husband, her son has 
gone bad and she cannot keep a job, but 
she rejects self-pity. She has simply lost all 
hope, but she maintains her dignity by 
keeping her right to control her life, even 
to the point of suicide. " 'night. Mother" 
is playing to rave reviews on Broadway, 
and the Louisville, Ky., native's work is 
expected to win a sweepstakes of theater 
awards before the year is out. 

According to Ms. Norman, 35, part of 
the credit belongs to Agnes Scott philos- 
ophy professor Merle Walker. "You look 
two seconds at my work, and you see her 
influence. That's just a critical part of 
me." 

She speaks of Dr. Walker's passion for 
her field. "Agnes Scott allowed me to be 
around that kind of people." She says 
the best course she took was Dr. Walker's 
course on Plato.

night spots," she says. A pre- 
decessor of tap dance, clog- 
ging became dormant in the 
1940s until the folk dance re- 
vival. Today it rides a wave of 
popularity. There are numer- 
ous new professional clogging 
teams which perform 
throughout the country, she 
says. 

"Like clogging, square 
dance is currently one of the 
most popular forms of folk 



dance. Around 1940, square 
and folk dances were danced 
frequently at special barn 
dances, parties and 'get- 
togethers.' 

"Festivals and jamborees 
sprang up. Square dance be- 
came so popular that it was 
incorporated into the educa- 
tional system throughout the 
United States. By 1966, 
square dance had established 
itself as part of the core cur- 
ricula in physical education 
and recreation programs at 
leading colleges and univer- 



sities," Ms. Darling observed. 
"Although square dance never 
entered a dormant period as 
clogging did, it continues to 
increase in popularity each 
year with no hint of decline." 
Professor Darling, who will 
continue researching folk 
dance, predicts, "The folk 
craze will continue until the 
technical/robotics change 
slows down or until we feel 
comfortable with that change. 
As high technology advances, 
the folk craze will continue to 
develop also." ■ 



" 'The Allegory of the Cave' was criti- 
i\ to my thinking. Every time (I write a 
lay) I make a journey, and I watch the

igly difficult." 

In her days at Agnes Scott, she says, "I

bspital." 

The night C)t. Martin Luther King Jr. 
ied stands out for her. "The talk was, 
Vould this be dangerous to us? Would 
lere be race riots in Decatur?' I was very 
isturbed by that. It was not what we 
lould be hearing." 

But she credits Agnes Scott with af-

le identify a path to follow, to make an 
istinctive guess as to what I should de- 
ote my life. It provided a peaceful envi- 
Dnment and time to do some critical 
"linking about how to make the world 

home." 

In 1968, after three years at the Col- 
:ge, she went to work with disturbed 
hildren at Kentucky's Central State 
lospital. "Those kids were just the be- 
inning. The whole history of my life is 



wanting to be of service," she says. 
"How could I help? I found I couldn't 
help in any way. Those kids were as 
much a part of the bureaucracy as the 
bureaucrats they served. I lasted two 
years and left absolutely brokenhearted." 

From Central State she went to teach 
gifted children at the Brown School, 
then settled down to full-time writing, 
doing articles for Louisville Today and 
book reviews for The Louisville Times,. 
Also, she created and wrote "The Jelly 
Bean Journal," a children's supplement 
to the Saturday evening Louisville 
Courier-Journal. 

"I was perceived as charming, funny 
and smart, but really of little signifi- 
cance." She told an interviewer from the 
Saturday Review, "I had nobody to talk 
to. I was an alien creature in my im- 
mediate world." 

Feeling isolated and alone and having 
ended her marriage to teacher Michael 
Norman, she made the break and did 
what she had always dreamed of — 
write for the theater. She submitted a 
play to Jon Jory of the Louisville Actors 
Theatre. While it didn't suit his needs, it 
convinced him she could write. He urg- 
ed her to try her hand with a play about 
some serious social issue, perhaps busing. 
She countered with the idea of "Getting 
Out," based on the life of a young girl 
she had known at Central State. 

But "Getting Out" has personal mean- 
ing, too. Ms. Norman says she has a 
"tremendous fear of being trapped — to 
be trapped in a job, in a marriage, in a 
group." Her fear took form in "Getting 
Out," in which an angry young woman. 



imprisoned for murder, is finally re- 
leased. First produced by Jory at the 
Actors Theatre, the play went on to 
New Y^rk tci run ciff-Broadway for eight 
months. 

With " 'night. Mother," Ms. Norman

past five years. She believes the ascen- 
dency of women in the theater "reflects 
a general awareness of women to be cen- 
ter stage in their own lives. It reflects a 
change in the attitude toward women in 
general. When a change in the culture 
occurs, it is reflected in the theater. My 
work is an affirmation of my right to 
stand center stage." 

She says she has encountered no prej- 
udice in her theater experience. "But 
there is one prejudice that could have 
been devastating — the tendency of the 
male-dominated theater to put women 
characters in the background," Ms. Nor- 
man explains. " ' 'night. Mother' is one 
of the few plays in which the mother is 
at center stage. The mother-daughter re- 
lationship affects everyone. It's an im- 
portant relationship and needs to be 
investigated.

Ms. Norman observes. "Art moves with 
society." 

0{ the content of " 'night, Mother," 
Ms. Norman says: "People receive a 
problem that requires resolutions. They 
have to work to understand it. We've all 
known people who killed themselves. 
We're left confounded and grief-stricken. 
' 'night, Mother' is an attempt to under- 
stand what they're doing and to fight it 
out with them, to fight both sides of the 
issue." 

Reviewers have given the play warm 
response. "Miss Norman's play is simple 
only in the way that an Edward Hopper 
painting is simple," wrote Frank Rich in 
The hlew York Times. "As she perfectly 
captures the intimate details of two indi- 
vidual, ordinary women, the playwright 
locates the emptiness that fills too many 
ordinary homes on too many faceless 
streets in the vast country we live in now. 

"Does ' 'night. Mother' say 'No' to

found achievement that she brings both

Ms. Norman and her husband, Dann 
Byck, a retailer turned producer, live in 
an apartment on New Yark's fashionable 
West Side. Her newest play, "Traveler in 
the Dark," opened in February at the 
American Repertory Theatre in Cam- 
bridge, Mass. "It's a play about guilt and 
reason," she says. "The central character 
is a surgeon who finds himself in a situa- 
tion where his intelligence is absolutely 
useless, another false god."

r^ hree Agnes Scott professors are conducting trips 
abroad this summer to countries whose food is as 
well known as their landscapes. Armed with the 
lowledge that the lifestyles of people in different cul- 
res are often reflected in what they eat and how they 
epare their food, this writer asked the three profes- 
rs about their personal culinary likes and dislikes. 
With a sense of humor, all the while rueing the 
riter's misplaced editorial judgment, the professors 
luctantly answered questions about their attitudes

Bobbie socks and big band sounds returned to Agnes 
Scott in December when a Hollywood movie crew filmed 
scenes around the campus. 

The College's architecture had lured producer Larry 
Spangler to choose Agnes Scott as the main location for 



"The Bear," his $8 million movie about 
late University of Alabama football 
coach Paul "Bear" Bryant. Spangler's 
crew sprinkled silk dogwood trees and 
fresh flowers across the December-dreary 
campus, and the Alumnae House be- 
came the site for Coach Bryant's home. 
Dressing rooms lined the campus' yellow 
curbs, and 100 male teenagers roamed 
the women's locker room. 

Paint, wallpaper and borrowed furni- 
ture transformed Main's McKinney 
Date Parlor into the set for the Univer- 
sity of Alabama's president's office, and 
Winship Hall was home to a chaotic 
mass of hairdressers, makeup artists and 
wardrobe crew members. 

"This school has become our 
godsend," said Mr Spangler, an attrac- 
tive man in his 40s, with permed gray 
hair and a diamond stud earring in one 
ear "It's l ike a movie studio." 
£ Z^f he Bear" stars Gary Busey in 
I the title role. Busey is best 
" known as the star of "The 
Buddy Holly Story," and his ability to 
mimic people has earned him respect. 
Not only could Busey imitate many of 
Bryant's characteristics, says the pro- 
ducer, but he was the right age for 
makeup artists to change him from a 
teenager to an older man in the course 
of filming — six makeovers in all. 

Mr. Spangler decided to film the 
movie in Georgia after Bryant's family 
objected to filming in Alabama. Al- 



though before his death Coach Bryant 
had given Spangler permission to make 
the mo\'ie, the coach's family objected 




to the script and some of the casting. 
They wanted a more well-known actor 
to play Bear Bryant. 

Bear Bryant first had hoped John 
Wayne could portray him, but the leg- 



endary actor died before casting began. 
Spangler approached George C. Scott 
with the part, but they could not agree 
on the actor's fee. Spangler says he also 
considered Burt Lancaster, but felt the 
actor was too old to play the Bear as a 
teenager. 

As he considered a list of prominent 
actors, Spangler realized most of them 
were too short. Someone recommended 
he contact Gary Busey, who had plaved 
football in Oklahoma and was South- 
ern. Busey read the script, lost 40 
pounds, had his teeth capped and 
started to work. 

The actor spent a mc^nth in Birm- 
ingham meeting people and listening to 
stories about the famous coach; he 
watched 100 hours of \ideotapes of 
Bryant, and he talked with men who 
had played fcxitball under Tlie Bear. 

"Gary's knockin' 'em dead," Spangler 
says ccinfidently. "He's got Bear's move- 
ments down. Busey 's a talented actor — 
he'll be bankable after this." 

Although Busey is a talented actor, 
"Gary is difficult to work with," admit- 
ted the producer "But I'm difficult to 
work with. I treat my people well. I take 
care of them, but they work or they go 
home." 

Spangler predicts Busey will earn an 
Oscar nomination for his portrayal of 
Bear Bryant. He recalled the scene when 
Busey made a locker room speech to the 
football team about a Saturday Evening

Post article which alleged that Coach 
Bryant fixed a game. The crew and ex- 
tras gave the actor a standing ovation at 
the end of the take. Another scene re- 
quired Busey to fake a heart attack. 
Spangler said the acting was so convinc- 
ing that it unnerved several onlookers. 

But the producer isn't the only one 
who can almost feel the Oscar in his 
hand. "Press your tux," Busey quips to 
Spangler, after ending a scene well. 

Since the Agnes Scott students were 
on Christmas vacation, only a few 
worked as extras. But many 
Atlantans came to campus to be extras 
in the football and dance scenes. For 
one dance set in Rebekah Reception 
Room, production workers hung hun- 
dreds of 45 rpm records from the ceiling 
as students in '50s era costumes — 
ducktail haircuts, saddle oxfords and 
bobbie socks — packed the noisy room. 
In a more elegant dance staged in the 
gym, more than 200 people, dressed in 
'30s ballgowns and tuxedos, danced to 
Big Band tunes to set the scene where 
Paul Bryant first met his wife. 

Because Spangler had only three 
months to film the movie, all the crew 
members felt pressured, he says. "All of 
us like the recognition," he added, not- 
ing interview requests from magazines 
and newspapers nationwide — Sports 
Illustrated, Rollmg Stone and even Andy 
Warhol's /ntfrrieic. 

/ Z^Phe Bear" has put Agnes Scott 
I in the national spotlight. Be- 
B sides local magazine, television 
and newspaper features, the College re- 
ceived mention on "Entertainment 
Tonight," in USA Today, in People Maga- 
zine and elsewhere. 

There were other benefits as well. The 
film's production staff repaired and 
restored the sites they used, and the 
College could choose to keep the set 
dressing or have them changed back to 
the original look. The date parlors in 
Main dormitory were on the list. 
McKinney Date Parlor was wallpapered 
and Dieckmann Date Parlor got a fresh 
coat of paint and some new draperies. 
One of the Alumnae House rooms was 
also repainted, and Rebekah Reception 
Room got a new set of draperies. 

This is not the first time Agnes Scott 
has been chosen as location for films. 
"The Four Seasons," "The Double 
McGuffin" and "A Man Called Peter" 
were also filmed in part on the campus. 

When students returned to register for 
winter quarter, few traces of Hollywood 
remained. Students will have to wait un- 
til the movie's October premiere to see 
their campus portrayed as the University 
of Alabama. ■ 



AGNES SCOTT ALUMNAE MAGAZINE 25 



(Cont'd, from page 2) 

how I've come to understand mvself. My 
art is journalistic — it's a visual journal 
of my days. 

"If I were making art to sell, I'd be 
making different art," she says. "I'm not 




making pretty images anymore. The 
content level of my art is different — it's 
more emotional, honest, powerful." 

Terry's trek was motivated by a sum- 
mer she spent in India as a Fulbright 
scholar. A veteran traveler, she was 
more profoundly influenced by her expe- 
rience in traveling in Eastern countries 
than her impressions from the art cen- 
ters of Europe. 

Her journey into the isolated, primi- 
tive land of the Himalayan mountains, 
where dawn and dusk were the only re- 
minders of time, opened a new world to 
her of different people and a different 
way of life. 

"The Himalayan experience was a new 
high because it tapped so much of my 
life. The least of it is the whole survival 
issue — being in a fairly primitive space 
for several weeks and living the way we 
did in a strange culture. 

"During this trek, I became intrigued 
with where ground and sky merge and 
how they don't merge. Where does one 
end and the other begin? Where does 
man or woman and nature begin and 
end? You can take that question into the 
environment and what we're doing to 
the earth." 

Returning from the Himalayas to the 
fast world of cars, phones, computers, 
and daily schedules, Terry's exhiliration 
changed to frustration. She retreated to 
a family cabin on the Florida panhandle 



to find peace and quiet again. During 
this time, she experienced loneliness and 
sadness and her moods, again, were re- 
flected in her work. Most of her seascape 
pictures display dark bold colors which 
convey a somber, melancholy feeling. 

"I don't like living and moving as fast 
as I live and move in this country. Dur- 
ing my sabbatical year, having the time 
to learn how^ to relax, learning not to 
push myself, I found out there was 
another way to li\'e. I discovered a new 
side of myself that wanted 'to be' rather 
than 'to be driven.' We live calendars, 
we live clocks. I feel like I'm back in the 
fast lane and I mourn the loss of being 
in another culture where nobody gave a 
damn about the time — when it got 
done, it got done," she explains. 

"1 will never work 8-to-5. I hoped that 
I could on my sabbatical. I set up a rigid 
schedule, and I found out very soon that 
I could not do that. The sabbatical was 
so important to allow me time to get in 
touch with the 'naturalness' — not hav- 
ing to compartmentalize my feelings into 
making art on Friday afternoons when I 
wasn't teaching or at times when I didn't 
want to do it. 

"A more structured life does not allow 
for that ebb and flow of creativity to 
come in and out of your life. Different 
things trigger me to want to go into my 
studio — I can go to an art opening, I 
can attend a musical event, or I can be 
with a special person. I pretty much go 
on my natural rhythms." 

A professor at Agnes Scott for eight 
years, Terry even noticed a change in 
her teaching style after returning from 
her sabbatical. "I'm more flexible now 
with my students. I am still as demand- 
ing, but in a soul-searching way. I chal- 
lenge them to think more about 'why.' I 
teach them technical skills, but I want 
them to go further — to look inside 
themselves and think. I allow for differ- 
ent things now — a more spiritual 
approach. 

"We were all born with creativity, 
and we want to do something creative, 
whether it's to take a photography 
course or to learn to weave. But we 
don't always integrate this artistic ex- 
pression into our lives. At Agnes Scott, I 
want to influence these women, who 
won't necessarily be artists, but who will 
incorporate art into their lives. 

"I feel that if we can't share more of 
ourselves, whether through visual art, 
dance, music, loving, or caring or what- 
ever, then what is it about? '^Tiat is life if 
we can't share the rainbow we experi- 
ence in our lives — the darks, the lights, 
and everything in between?" ■

AGNES SCOTT ALUMNAE MAGAZINE 27 




•• Y^o*-^ have to keep open 

X the windows of wonder, 
maintains Dr. Walter Edward 
McNair, Professor Emeritus oi 

English at Agnes Scott, former Director 
of Public Relations and De\'elopment, 
and author of a recently published his- 
tory of the College, "Lest We Forget." 

Dr. McNair's capacity for wonder, 
which sparked a generation of superior 
students, has not diminished since his 
retirement in 1977. It illuminates the 
comprehensive, definitive history he 
wrote at his old desk in a handsome, 
paneled office on the second floor of 
McCain Library. And it sharpens the in 
cisive wit with which he now compiles 
anecdotes about the College, gleaned 
from stories of alumnae all over the 
nation. 

"Many of us have become so prag- 
matic, so practical, so earthbound in ou 
whole outlook on and attitude toward 
life that we ha\'e lost our capacity to 
wonder," he told the Agnes Scott stu- 
dent body in an Investiture address in 
1976. "Our values have been polluted b' 
the commonplace and pedestrian. We 
no longer stand v\'ide-eyed in awe before 
the beautiful as our imaginations take 
flight and excitement runs riot through 
our blood." 

Dr. McNair bases his capacity for 
wonder on three things: the creative 
genius of the human mind, our capacity 
for love and selflessness and "that the 
ultimate realization of selfhood can re- 
sult from completely identifying one's 
purposes and ideals with a cause or an 
institution greater than oneself" 

The company of Agnes Scott teachers 
students and alumnae who have given 
themselves to the College, he says, con- 
tinually inspire him. He cites Professor 
Ellen Douglass Leyburn, an alumna of 
the Class of 1927 and a faculty member 
for 32 years, who, he says, "personified 
the union of the great teacher with the 
constantly producti\'e, publishing 
scholar." He also points to Miss Nan- 
nette Hopkins, "the first teacher em- 
ployed in ISS*^ when Agnes Scott was 
still a dream," and Professor Samuel 
Guerry Stukes, who gave his life to the 
College and was a "devoted husband 
and father, a respected and effecti\'e 
citizen, and an actively participating 
member of his church." 

Dr. McNair, legendary for his dedica- 
tion to Agnes Scott, began his adminis- 
trative work under President Wallace 
Alston and continued under President 
Mar\in B. Perry Jr. "One could have no 
better men to work for," Dr. McNair 
says. 



.S- 



As Director of Public Relations and 
evelopment, McNair was compulsively 
tentive to detail. "When the ox is in 
e ditch, we must all pull together to 
t him out," he used to say. Once, 
Ken a dignitary was to visit the Col- 
^e, Dr. McNair spotted some pigeon 
oppings on the front steps of Buttrick 
all, grabbed a mop and washed the 
:ps himself. 

A tap dance of his made campus his- 
ry when he kept step with dance in- 
■uctor Marylin Darling at a Junior 
unt Talent Show several years before 
■ retired. The student who asked the 
ilding sexagenarian to attempt this feat 

"When the ox is in the 
ditch, we must all pull 
together to get him out. 

;ver expected him to accept the chal- 
ige. He looked at her steadily through 
s rimless glasses and replied, "Of 
iurse, I will. How long have I got to 
t ready?" 

For two months, on Wednesday and 
iday afternoons, Ms. Darling and Dr. 
cNair practiced in the basement of 
e gym. Frequently Dr. McNair would 
jp, stare sadly at his feet, and tell her, 
Ars. Darling, my mind understands 
iplicitly the four, five and sLx count. 
It my feet don't seem inclined to co- 
)erate. Let's go over that again." 
The night of the Junior Jaunt, Dr. 
cNair and Ms. Darling dressed in 
arching red plaid slacks (his usual 
mpus garb), blue vests, bow ties and 
mbands, billing themselves as Mac 'n' 
are. With verve and precision, they 
d their routine. Dr. McNair kicking up 
s heels and wagging a hand over his 
:ad like Jimmy Durante. The crowd 
:nt wild. Dr. McNair, listening to the 

He looked at her flushed 
face and disheveled hair 

and told her sternly, 
"Miss Skinner, you look 
like the ivheels of de- 
struction going downhill." 

underous applause, turned to his part- 

:r and said with awe, "I believe we did 

perfectly." 

But "one cannot improve on perfec- 

)n," so he refused the junior class 

len they petitioned him to repeat his 

rformance the next year. 

Dr. McNair leavens his formal, 

Iwardian manner with a keen wit, and 

; is known for his bon mots. Once a 



student appeared in his English class 10 
minutes late. He looked at her flushed 
face and disheveled hair and told her 
sternly, "Miss Skinner, you look like the 
wheels of destruction going downhill." 

Today, Dr. McNair looks back over 
a full, rich life. Born in Atlanta near 
where the Fulton County Stadium 
stands now, he graduated from Boys 
High School, "of which I am very 
proud," he says. He went on to David- 
son College, where he graduated summa 
cum laude, then returned to Atlanta to 
teach English at Commercial High 
School for nine years before joining the 
Army as a private in 1942. 

For three years, he was stationed in 
England, where he says, "the country- 
side whetted my love for English litera- 
ture." He emerged as a major but later 
became a lieutenant colonel in the 
Reserves. 

When he returned to the States, his 
widowed mother, whom he adored, was 
in her 70s. Determined to go back to 
school on the G.I. Bill, Edward McNair 
enrolled in graduate school at Emory 
University after teaching one more year 
at Commercial High. In 1949 he started 
work on his doctorate, and after com- 
pleting his course work in 1952, he came 
to Agnes Scott as associate professor. He 
finished his dissertation four years later. 

A bachelor who says he "never found 
a girl I loved enough to marry who 
would have me," Dr. McNair found 
compensations in the single life. "First 
my mother was the polar center of my 
life," he explains. "For 31 years now, the 
polar center has been Agnes Scott. I've 
enjoyed my freedom; if I had married, I 
might not have had as much time to 
give to Agnes Scott." 

An active layman at Druid Hills 
Presbyterian Church for 40 years, he has 
served as an elder for three decades. His 
small circle of intimate friends range 
from those with silver hair and in their 
80s to couples who could be his grand- 
children. He has two godchildren and 
two namesakes to whom he is devoted. 

"It's been a wonderfully fine thing," he 
says of the changes he has seen in his 
years at the College. "1984 is not the 
same as 1952. I have watched the Col- 
lege as it tried to keep pace with the 
times." 

He notes the increased freedom of the 
students, recalling how they used to be 
required to sign in and out and observe 
lights out. "The curriculum has loosened 
up. It is relevant, appropriate for the 
times, and there's more freedom of 
choice in the courses," he adds. "The 
faculty is larger, but not one whit better. 
There are more married women in the 



faculty and more men. When the men 
were in the minority, they used to have 
lunch together every Tuesday to 'main- 
tain their integrity.' " 

He also recalls a time when students 
wore blue jeans and shorts only on 
"Suppressed Desires Day." "Today 
they're worn by all the students, 'fcu 
rarely see skirts and sweaters anymore." 

The student body is much more mo- 
bile, he observes. When he came to the 
College, students were not allowed to 
have cars. "Today most students have 
cars, and parking is a problem." 

Dr. McNair has seen four new build- 
ings go up on campus, and he takes 
pride that he was active in the Seventy- 
fifth Anniversary Development Fund 
which made possible the construction of 
the Dana Fine Arts Building. During 
that time, under Dn Alston, he worked

closely with alumnae groups — "a great 
group of women," he says, beaming. 

Since his retirement, he has received 
several awards and accolades. A loyal 
Davidson alumnus who has served as 
president of his class every year since his 
graduation, he was given Davidson's 
Alumni Service Medal honoring his 50 
years of work. An active member and 
past president of Phi Beta Kappa, he was 
honored by Agnes Scott with a student 
fund in his name to support visits to 
campus from Phi Beta Kappa scholars. 

Although Dr. McNair may stoop 
slightly, his red plaid slacks hide a little 
paunch and the tiny tuft of hair on his 
head has turned white, his taste in 
clothes still runs to plaid, and his step is 
as spry as ever. Every day finds him at 
his old desk between volumes of Robert 
Frost and campus archives. When he is 
not bound for a civic meeting, he lunch- 
es in the dining hall, enjoying the com- 
pany of faculty members and students, 
voicing his wonder, "What under the 
shining canopy of heaven!" ■

'TheYear Of Introspection' 



At the opening convocation in the faR of 1983 I cited the words ofjaroslav 
/..\Pelikan, eminent church hslomn at Yale, who speaks of the ongoing life of 
JL jL.people and institutions as "the mysterious relationship between continuity and 
change. " Most of the academic year 1983-84 was spent in assessing where we r\ow 
are in order to dJo the important work of planning for the second century of this great 
College's life. We shaR build on our long heritage and on the many studies and 
consukatiuns of these last two years to shape a strong future based on common 
aspirations. 

We at Agnes Scott share a commitment to the liberal arts, to the education of 
\vomen, and to the ongoing exploration of the meaning of that commitment in &ds 
uncertain year of 1984, just five years from our centennial celebration. Our sharing 
this commitment to the kind of college Agnes Scott is and has been makes us a 
minority in the world of higher education. 

I am concerned that we as Americans tend toward the immediate and what we 
deem practical, such as in education. Consequently, many people wiU miss the most 
irr\portant aspect of the hherd arts — the liberating experience of a liberal education. 
It has to do with being freed from the limitations of any one person's understanding of 
God's luorld. 

The liberal arts are liberating arts, freeing us "from the parochialisms of our own 
time ard place and station, " as Princeton's President William Bowen has said. We 
study history and dream about the future to expand our hmzons in time. We must 
live in this particular and peculiar time, but we can live weR, with understanding and 
perspective, ordy by knowing what has preceded us arul by planning for what wiU be. 

A liberal arts education liberates us from the slavery of place by curing us of 
cultural myopia. One of the most vcduabk things we can ham is that many human 
beings with the same God-given talents have structured their worlds in different ways. 
B}i understanding another culture, we have greater insight into our own. Perhaps 
because of my owii experience of Hispanic culture, one of my dreams for Agnes Scott 
is that every graduate wiR have had significant exposure to another way of life, 
another language, ar^ther manner of viewing the world. 

President Bowen's words remind us that a liberal education should free us from the 
parochialism of station as weR. There is nothing so freeing from our anxieties and 
concerns as involvement with those whose station in Ufe dictates that shelter, daily 
food, and even water to drink and bathe in, are uppermost in all vxiking t/ioughts. 
Our privileges and uncommon opportunities as the liberaRy educated derryind that we 
devote our lives to the service of others, of those who for many reasons — economic, 
medical, or political — cannot live the liberated life. 

A liberal and liberating education prods people to develop mental and spiritual 
qualities which enable them to develop unique ways of being — modes of relating to 
die past, to culture and experiences, but uhmately, individuoRy shaped, unique to 
each one. The liberaRy educated person is the one who digs out the facts, tteigfis the 
evidence, e:3^lores what has been discovered and what can be known, organizes 
materials to influence and persuade others, and makes choices marked by selflessness, 
service, and a vision of the whole. 

We at Agnes Scott College are dedicated to providing the best possible conditions 
for this kind of liberating experience as we live out the "mysterious relationship 
between continuity and change. " We are grateful for your participation and support in 
this crucial work.

THE PRESIDENT'S REPORT 



The 1983-84 academic year was one 
of preparation and self-study, a 
basic undertaking for an institution 
ivhich will observe its centennial 
ivithin five years. We at Agnes Scott 
ivant to be ready to celebrate a joyous 
3ne hundred years and the beginning 
af the College's second century. Funda- 
mental to this process was the February 
visit of a team of colleagues from other 
Southern colleges. They did a reaffir- 
ntiation evaluation based on a campus 
self-study completed in the fall. 

During the course of the year, we 
invited consultants fi^om other educa- 
tional institutions to help us assess our 
admissions and athletic programs, and 
these refX)rts will also be a part of our 
planning. 

A new committee created by action 
af the faculty performed a very impor- 
tant planning function as well. This 
Creative Ideas Coordinating Commit- 
tee worked diligently to listen to all 
constituencies of the College and then 
to organize and present suggestions to 
enhance this institution. 

To show the best of our physical 
heritage in our splendid buildings, 
extensive renovation must be done 
before 1989. The administration asked 
the architectural firm of Spillman 
Farmer of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, to 
develop a comprehensive master plan. 
These professionals lived on campus, 
ate in die dining hall, and tested their 
ideas and sketches by posting them on 
a residence parlor wall, involving the 
community in the excitement of the 
plans. Their plans include renovation 
of Inman, Main, and Rebekah Scott 
residences,' the infirmary and the gym- 
nasium; construction of a new 
swimming pool, playing field and 
track; and improvement of campus 
landscaping and traffic patterns. The 
Board of Trustees approved this com- 
prehensive plan at its May meeting. 

The College has also studied energy 
conservation possibilities on campus. 
This study calls for the installation of 
independent hot water heating systems 
in each building and the phasing out 
of the antiquated steam plant. Both 
the energy and the architectural plans 
will be carried out in the next five 
years. 

To coordinate and carry forward 
what we have learned by internal 
studies and evaluations by outside 



experts, the College formed a Second 
Century Committee this spring to do 
strategic planning. The committee rep- 
resents all areas of the College 
community. We look forward to explor- 
ing new ideas and directions for the 
College while maintaining and preserv- 
ing all that is good in the wonderful 
heritage of this institution. 

Over the years the College has 
been blessed by the many people 
who have provided strong leadership 
and devoted years of their lives in 
service to Agnes Scott. The members 
of the Board of Trustees are among 
those to help perpetuate the tradition 
of excellence with their contributions 
of time and expertise. 

New members of the Board of 
Trustees include Susan M. Phillips '67, 
who chairs the Federal Commodity 
Futures Trading Commission in Wash- 
ington, D.C., and six trustees elected 
at the May meeting: Jean Salter Reeves 
'59, retiring Alumnae Association pres- 
ident; Jo Ann Sawyer Delafield '58; 
Betty Pope Scott Noble '44; John 
Weitnauer, Jr. , chairman and chief 
executive officer of Richway, Inc. ; B. 
Franklin Skinner, president of South- 
em Bell; and Bennett A. Brown, 
president of Citizens &. Southern 
National Bank. 

At a festive dinner in Evans Dining 
Hall, the eve of the May board 
meeting, the College community paid 
tribute to retiring trustees Alex Gaines, 
Hansford Sams, and A.H. Sterne. Mr. 
Gaines chaired the board from 1973 to 
1979 and is the grandson of Agnes 
Scott's first president. Mr. Sams, a 
great-grandson of the founder of the 
College, recently served on the execu- 
tive committee and the buildings and 
grounds committee. Mr. Sterne's recent 
service included the investment and 
the academic affairs committees. 

That same evening, the College also 
said good-bye to retiring Dean Julia T. 
Gary, who begins her Master of 
Divinity Degree studies at Emory Uni- 
versity's Candler School of Theology 
this fall. She gave a fine address on 
Agnes Scott's liberal arts heritage. Two 
other retiring officers, Lee Barclay, vice 
president for business affairs, and Paul 
M. McCain, special assistant to the 
president for planned giving and vice 
president for development from 1969 to 
1983, were also recognized by the 




As a result of studies by an 
architectural firm arvi an energy 
consulting firm, the College plans 
to renovate campus buildings and 
install a new heating system by the 
centennial.

assembled group. 

The College was saddened hy the 
deadi in New York June 28 of Cissie 
Spiro Aidinoff '51, a fonner Alumnae 
Association president who had just 
completed a four-year term as alumna 
trustee. 

As Agnes Scott approaches the 
beginning of her second century, 
the College is expanding its Return to 
College Program under new director 
Marilynn Mallory. Working closely 
with the Office o{ the Dean of the 
QiUege and the Office of Admissions, 
the RTC program quickly put to work 
a one-million-doUar gift from the estate 
of Irene K. Woodruff to endow RTC 
financial aid. Return to College meet- 
ings and a newsletter have enhanced 
communication and awareness of the 
gifts and needs ot women beyond the 
usual college age of 18 to 22. 

Another innovative program is the 
academic computing center on the 
ground floor of the library. An attrac- 
tive facility equipped with IBM 
Personal Computers and Apple He's, 
the academic computing center is 
assisting the faculty and students to use 
computers in all applicable parts of the 
liberal arts curriculum. Professor 
Thomas W. Hogan, coordinator of the 
program, has done a fine job in his 
first year in charge of the program. 

The G'jlleges administrative side is 
abo becoming computerized, guided by 
Director oi Administrative Computing 
Robert M. Thies, who came in Janu- 
ary. The imminent claiming of a 
$125,000 duPont challenge grant will 
complete the half-million-dollar fund- 
raising for computers and software for 
instructional and administrative uses. 

Also new this year was Agnes 
Scott's first Alumnae College. The 
successful June 18-22 event drew fifty- 
three alumnae and friends from as far 
away as New York and Pennsylvania to 
the campus for one of three courses 
taught by Agnes Scott faculty members 
Miriam Daicker (psychology), Mar- 
garet Pepperdene (English), and 
Thomas Hogan (computer). Plans are 
already underway to make the Alum- 
nae College an annual event, so plan 
to be with us next summer 

The QiUege alai welcomed its first 
chaplain this yean Mary Jane Kerr 
Qimell '74, asscKiate pasttir at Qilum- 
bia Presbytt^rian Church, led us in 



wt^rship and prayer, offering spiritual 
encouragement and guidance to the 
G)llege community. 

Agnes Scott is known throughout 
metropolitan Atlanta for its valu- 
able contribution of cultural events to 
the public. The College not only offers 
arts entertainment by members of its 
community, but brings in nationally 
acclaimed performers and artists as 
well. 

The Kirk Concert Series' successful 
third season included classical pianist 
Garrick Ohlsson, classical guitarist 
Christopher Parkening, and the Guar- 
neri String Quartet. 

Agnes Scott provided other musical 
entertainment, such as pianist Lois 
Leventhal, the Washington and Lee 
University Jazz Band, and the 
Augsburg College Choir. 

Divertissement, "a pleasant diver- 
sion," was a half-hour of light 
entertainment which featured guests 
such as Broadway cabaret singer 
Sandra Dorsey, folk musicians Elise 
Witt and the Small Family Orchestra, 
the illusionists New World Theatre 
G:)mpany, and the Atlanta Civic 
Opera Studio. 

The Lecture Committee, comprised 
of faculty members and students, 
invited a variety of guests to the 
campus. The Roadside Theater pre- 
sented Red Fox/Seccmd Hangin' in the 
fall. The National Theatre of the Deaf, 
known for their spectacular acting as 
well as their ability to use voice and 
sign language for hoth hearing and 
hearing- impaired audiences, and the 
Florida State University Dance Theatre 
Qimpany attracted large audiences dur- 
ing the winter season. Sally Fitzgerald, 
editor of The Habit of Being, spoke in 
April about her friendship with Geor- 
gia author Rannery O'Connor. The 
film Wise Bfcxxi, based on O'Connor's 
novel, was shown in conjunction with 
Fitzgerald's lecture. 

Linda Fcistan and Richard Wilbur, 
award-winning poets featured during 
d-ie 1984 Writers' Festival, entertained 
several groups by reading and discussing 
selections from their works. 

Last fall, the first Great Scott Fes- 
tival attracted visitors from throughout 
Atlanta. Face painting, a haunted 
house, lectures, glass-blowing demon- 
strations, slide shows, campus touts, 
festival T-shirts, ballcwns, and dance,

1983-84 FUND REPORT 

One of the most important 
aspects of Agnes Scott College 
is the Annual Fund. Throu^ gifts 
to the Annual Fund, alumnae and 
friends provide for student financial 
aid, facuky and staff salaries, 
library resources, as well as utilities 
and rrmntenance of our physical 
plant. For the 1983-84 ^"^nes Scott 
Annual Fur^d, over 200 alumnae 
volunteers directed and staffed the 
drive for contributions. Because of 
these volunteers and the generosity 
of over 3,400 alumnae, Agnes 
Scott's Annual Fund can boast a 
record year. 

Alumnae and friends gave a 
record $523,420 to the Annual 
Fund Alumnae contributed 
$291,502, surpassing their god of 
$250, 000. The most exciting news, 
however, is that alumnae participa- 
tion increased from 32% to 38%. 
Friends of the College also set a 
r\ew giving record to the Annual 
Fund by giving $231,900, almost 
^double their previous high. In dona- 
tions to all furuls, which include the 
Science Hall, endowment, and 
computer, alumnae gave $987, 669 
— also a record, if bequests are not 
included 

The response from alumnae, 
frieruis, four\dations, and corpora- 
tions to the Jessie Ball duPont 
Challenge Grant for academic and 
administrative computers has also 
been excellent. With over a year to 
go to meet the challenge, we are 
only $27,000 short of our 
$374,000 goal We fuRy expect to 
claim the challenge grant before 
December 31, 1984. 

With over $1,886,000 in gfts to 
all funds of the College, Agnes 
Scott College is very proud of its 
alumnae and friends. Throi^ this 
valued support we wiR revnain 
dedicated to providing the best 
academic education possible for 
ivomen We hope that everyone 
who contributed this year luiR accept 
our gratitude and know how very 
much we appreciate their support.

Through the years alumnae and 
friends of Agnes Scott have 
provided gifts to buM the CoRege 
and to strengthen its programs. 
Many of these gifts have made it 
possible to improve facuky compen- 
sadon, to increase financial aid to 
students, and to add books for the 
library and equipment for the class- 
rooms and laboratories. 

Most of the gifts received each 
year are unrestricted. The College 
can apply them to scholarship 
awards or to some other budget 
needs. When a gift is designated for 



Gifts strengthen 

important 
coUege programs, 

a specific purpose, the College 
respects the donor's wish 

Some restricted gifts are made for 
die Endowment so that the principal 
will be held intact and only the 
iru:ome wSl be used for general or 
specific purposes. Gifts for student 
loan funds are meeting a growing 
need. Sometimes a donor wiR make 
a gift but wiR select a life-income 
plan such as an annuity, thereby 
benefiting both the College and the 
donor. 

Agnes Scott is indebted to alum- 
nae and frier\ds for their interest and 
generosity in estabUshir^ the follow- 
ing permanent funds for the 
CoUege. The amount shown for 
each fund represents the total of 
all gifts received through June 
30, 1984. 

This list describes individuoRy all 
funds of $5,000 or more, but it 
does not include scholarships pro- 
vided annually by the donors. 
Please let the Development Office 
know of any errors or omissions so 
that corrections can be made.

Women and scholarship gained 
more support this year throughout the 
metro Atlanta area with the formation 
oi a women's studies group comprised 
of staff and facuky from area colleges 
and universities. Members of the 
Agnes Scott faculty and staff were 
instrumental in founding this group 
and the first meeting was held on our 





campus. In addition, faculty at Agnes 
Scott met regularly to discuss women's 
political, social, and economic issues. 

During the past year, the College 
received news of many alumnae. 
We encourage all alumnae to send us 
news of themselves and other alumnae. 
The alumnae we heard from included: 

Rachel Henderlite '28, the first woman 
ordained by the Presbyterian Church, 
U.S., was honored by Union The- 
ological Seminary in New York with 
the Union Medal, awarded to persons 
who embody die mission of the semi- 
nary to the world. Austin Presbyterian 
Theological Seminary celebrated 
Rachel Henderlite Day in May to 
honor their professor emerita. She was 
president of the Consultation on 
Church Union from 1976 to 1980. 

Peggy Mathis Lipsey '62 was named 
president of the First American Bank 
and Trust, a nationally chartered inde- 
pendent bank headquartered in Laguna 
Beach, California. She is the only 
woman to be president of a nationally 
chartered bank in the state. 

Marsha Norman '69, Pulitzer Prize 
winner for her play 'nigfe, Mother, 
returned to the campus for the first 
time in April to meet with a class and 
give a lecture. 

Eliza King Paschall '38, civil rights 
activist and formerly with the Equal 
Employment Opportunity Commis- 
sion, has been appointed to President 
Reagan's White House staff with the 
Office of Public Liaison to work with 
the president's office and lobbying 
groups. 

Susan Phillips '67, chair of the federal 
Commodity Futures Trading Commis- 
sion, spoke at the College's Honors 
Day Convocation in September. 

Jessie P. Roberts '64, science educator 
for the McDowell County Schools in 
Welch, was named West Virginia 
Teacher of the Year for 1984. 

Anne Terry Sherren '57, professor of 
chemistry and chair of the Division of 
Science at North Central College in 
Naperville, Illinois, received the 
1983-84 Honor Scroll Award of the 
Chicago Chapter of the Illinois 
Institute of Chemists.

and financial editor of the Washington 
Woman, a monthly local magazine.

the March phonathon was the most 
successful ever in increasing 
alumnae giving.

Jean Stewart Staton '46, M.D., is 
president-elect of Emory University's 
national alumni association. 

Elizabeth Stevenson '41 has been 
named Candler Professor of American 
Studies at Emory University. These 
professorships are awarded to Emory 
faculty members for excellence in 
teaching, scholarship, and service to 
Emory. She is the only professor 
without graduate degrees to become a 
Candler professor. 

Priscilla Sheppard Taylor '53 was 
named editor of the Phi Beta Kappa 
quarterly newsletter, "The Key 
Reporter." 

Alumnae are a vital part of foster- 
ing the intellectual, financial, and 
spiritual goals of the College. EXiring 
the Alumnae Leadership Conference 
in the fall of 1983, some one hundred 
volunteers of the Association gathered 
at the College to share ideas and to 
learn how to better prepare themselves 
for their role in serving the institution. 

When President Ruth Schmidt met 
with seventeen of the seventy alumnae 
clubs throughout the United States this 
year, several alumnae worked diligently 
to get news coverage of her visit to 
their city. This coverage helped spread 
the word of Agnes Scott College 
throughout the country. 

Alumnae are not only good "PR 
ambassadors" of the College, but they 
are capable admissions representatives 
as well. Their help this year in 
admissions benefitted Agnes Scott's 
enrollment. A number of students 
enrolled as a result of twelve alumnae 
clubs entertaining prospective students. 
In addition, alumnae representatives 
attended ninety college programs for 
high schools in twenty states and saw 
almost eight hundred students. Also, 
thirteen alumnae daughters entered the 
freshman class this fell. 

The ASC Network (Alumnae/Stu- 
dents/Careers) formed by the Career 
Planning Office provided a resource 
poo\ of 150 alumnae to be available to 
help students learn more about specific 
careers and gain on-the-job experience 
through the Shadow, Extern, and 
Intern Programs. Alumnae also shared 
their career knowledge and expertise by 
participating in the second Career Fair 
held at the College in January. 



As part of the Continuing Educa- 
tion Committee Programs, alumnae 
had a day of art with an art history 
lecture during lunch on campus, and 
later, a guided tour of the new High 
Museum of Art. They also spent a 
Saturday with Professor of Sociology 
Constance Jones discussing the book, 
Peace ivith Your Parents by Harold H. 
Bloomfield, M.S. with Leonard Felder, 
Ph.D. Other activities included a two- 
evening seminar by Dr. C. Benton 
Kline on "Theology Since 1960: 
Change and Experience" and a day- 
long seminar last spring with Dr. Tom 
Hogan on "The Computer," which 
offered alumnae hands-on learning 
experience in the College Computing 
Center. 

Despite a downpour. Alumnae 
Weekend brought six hundred former 
students back to campus last April to 
see old friends and to learn of proposed 
plans for the Centennial Celebration. 
Outstanding alumnae and classes of 
special achievement were recognized 
during the weekend, and more than 
170 members of the Fifty Year Club 
attended a reception honoring retiring 
administrators and a special dinner. 

For three weeks in June, thirty-five 
alumnae toured the historic sites and 
museums in France as they travelled 
and learned about French culture with 
Professor of French Frances Clark 
Calder '51. 

The continued service and contri- 
butions of alumnae have enriched 
the College in recmiting, providing 
career opportunities for students, offer- 
ing strong leadership, contributing 
money to the College's growth, and 
caring for the ongoing success of Agnes 
Scott. The vital support from alumnae 
is the key to the College's bright 
future. With your help, Agnes Scott 
will continue in the fine liberal arts 
tradition while incorporating inno- 
vative thoughts and moving in new 
directions. 

Our year of introspection has given 
us some fresh ideas on how to upgrade 
fecilities and create an even more 
pleasant environment in which to 
work, leam, and live. This next year 
will be one of implementation — 
carrying out ways to enhance the 
Q)llege as we approach our centennial 
year.D

■DITOR'S NOTE: Mary Ben 
:rwin '25, a volunteer who has 
«rked in the alumnae office for 
ve years, contributed this letter on 
Arginia McKenzie's retirement to 
tie Alumnae Magazine. See 
Virginia's success story on page 28. 




^ear editor: 

t ivas a good day in 1974 for 
\gnes Scott and the nadond 
Siumnae Association when 
Hrginia Broxun McKenzie '47 
ecame director of dumnae 
ffairs. It has been my privilege 
rui pleasure to work and play in 
ie alumnae office often mring 
lese 10 years, and my long 
riendship with Virginia has 
eveloped into one of my most 
measured blessings. I am saddened 
y the announcement of her 
Jtirement in June. At the same 
me, I am cheered by the indelible 
'.gacy of her charm, expert 
ladership, and devoted hydty to 
he dumrKie association and her 
Ima mater. 

Virginia is the chatelaine of the 
dumnae House, aware of every 
'etaii of making it the attractive 
nd hospitable College guest 
ouse. Her years as homemaker, 



wife, and mother of an active and 
devoted farruly prepared her for 
these demands. 

Active participation in dumnae 
affdrs has increased under her 
leadership. Alumnae Weekend is 
one of tfie hig/iiig/its of the College 
calendar. Attendance at the 
dumnae luncheon has increased 
beyond the walls of the College 
dining hall into the amphitheatre. 
The Fifty Year Club, recognizing 
early dumnae, is a specid feature 
of the weekend, with axtendance 
of about 175 for dinner and 
recognition of outstanding women 
in their respective fields of 
educaticm, church, professiond, 
and community service. Virgmids 
vision and energy have made this 
a happily anticipated event. 

The on-the-spot role of liaison 
between the dumnae and the 
College administration has 
extended to oU dumnae. Under 
her leadership, locd dumnae clubs 
have grown from 15 to 70 
tfiroug/iout tlie country. She has 
visited the clubs and knows each 
organization as a branch of the 
parent stem and knows individud 
members who make those 
branches flourish. Her knowledge 
of 9, 500 Agnes Scott dumnae as 
persond friends and products of 
the dma mater is one of her 
greatest assets. 

To everything there is a season 
and a time to every purpose under 
the heaven, a time to laugh and a 
time to dance. It is time now, 
Virginia, for you and your 
husband John, to lau^ and 
dance with your happy brood 
around you. We shaR be rejoicing 
with you in your delayed fun and 
saying, "Thanks, " to you and 
your family for having shared your 
time, your talents, and the 
treasury of your love with us.

ON THE DAY OF HER RETIRE- 
ment celebration, her pupils, their 
parents, and the schtxil staff 
released hundreds and hundreds ot 
balkxins — blue, pink, yellow, orange — 
into the sky over South Florida. 

Like notes in bottles, but more beautiful 
tor their fragility, the balkx)ns carried a 
message k>r all who might see them. "The 
Gcxd Years," they read. 

It was fun and also a philosophy. 

"The Good Years" meant the 10 years 
that Joella Craig Gcxxi '43 was principal 
Coconut Grove Elementary Schcwl, a 
racially and ectinomically halved Miami 
schiwl, with 310 pupils and 25 teachers 
and aides. Gtxxi officially retired July 1, 
1984, at age 61. A form of leukemia 
threatened not her life, but her health and 
energy, making her decide it best to 
separate herself from children, their sniffles 
and their activity. 

But the GcxxJ years will be remembered 
as the decade Q)conut Grove Elementary 
SchcKil changed. 

From a place where tcxi many teachers 
read novels or rummaged through their 
purses as the children did busy-work at 
dieir desks, it changed to a place where 
learning was primary, with two programs 
for advanced children — a virtually 
unheard of weakh in a Dade Qiunty 
Schtxjl. 

From a place where kids knight to draw 
bkKid and other children ran from their 
classRxims to watch, to a place u'here the 
pupils texik it on themselves to stop fights. 

From a place where children uimed 
their back on the principal in disrespect as 
she tried ti> counsel them, to a place 
where they bragged aKxit how bad things 
used to be, to stress hiiw tine things are 
niAv. 

"All the kids had — what do you call 
them? — those switchblades," one third- 
grader confided to a MitiTiii Hcraki repi.)rter 
last July 

They didn't, of course, Joella Cjixxj says 
now. "Rut they did carry othet kinds of 
knives and scissors as potentially harmkil. 
Razor blades, too, ct)uld he hidden in

heads of thick hair. " 

"I surely did learn a lot," Good adds. 
The former principal is a master of 
understatement, a PoUyanna of syntax. 
"You want to diffuse: you don't want to 
inflame," she says. 
Ask her why she worked 
so hard and stayed 
on year after year 
and she says 





simply, "I believe it is my job to 
make things go right." 

The tall, always elegantly suited woman 
is a Hercules when it comes to lifting a 
heavy burden and making things go right. 

Throughout her years at the school, 
Joella Good steadfastly refused to paddle 
pupils whatever the pressure, the anger, or 
the behavior of the children themselves. 
She did, however, once buy a paddle and 
take it to her office. 

During an early faculty meeting, a male 
teacher who opposed her stood and asked 
her how many kids she had paddled since 
she arrived. "I thought, 'Oh, Lord, give 
me the words,' " the Presbyterian church 
elder remembers. "And I said, 'Every one 
who needed it.' " 

An area superintendent — her bt)ss — 
issued the same challenge. She told him 
flatly that as long as it was a principal's 
prerogative to decide — as it is in Dade 
County Schools — corporal punishment 
would not be used in her school. 

The resolve grew out of a tragic 
incident in the Qiconut Grove 
community the summer before Gotxi tcxik 
over as principal. She tells the story with 
typical understatement. 

A man had been doused with gasoline 
and burned to death by two young boys, 
Good remembers. 

"1 read into that that they were defying 
authority I felt children had to learn some 
alternatives to violence." 

Change at Coconut Grove Elementary 
came down to those easy to say, but 
difificuk to achieve values. Alternatives. 
Respect. Pride. Tolerance. 

"Mainly we taught people to respect 
each other," Gocxd says. "We had to 
convince people that we were trustworthy, 
reliable, and dependable. As principal, I 
had to convince people that I was more 
interested in children than in being 
principal . . . that 1 didn't need power for 
my ego." 

Her values took many concrete forms. 



always emphasizing the gcxid, those 
elements worth respect and pride. 

There were Soul Fcxid Days and Color 
Days (when children wore schcwl colors to 
class). There were the Good Guys 
Gatherings with every pun intended by 
the counselor who created them. E\'ery 20 
days, children who were without detention 
or excessive tardiness — the good guys — 
could go to the auditorium for a movie 
and a special treat. 

"There is at this schexil," wrote MLimi 
Ha-aki reporter Madeleine Blais in her July 
story, "a profound understanding of the 
power of popcorn and ice cream and pizza 
to promote gLX)d behavior " 

The mantle of Gotxl was cast over the 
faculty, too. As vacancies occurred, the 
principal replaced tacuky members who 
did not ascribe to her philosophy. But 
since turnover was slow, changes in 
attitude were necessary, tc». 

There was, tor example, the 71 percent 
solution. 

One of the first years Gcxxd was at 
Coconut Grove Elementary, the schcxil 
system began rating schcxils. A school was 
branded deficient if 70 percent of its 
students did not pass skills tests. 

That first year. Coconut Grove achieved 
71 percent, and Good was ecstatic.

and when everyone got in that morning, 
there was a bud vase on every teacher's

IN A WORLD IN WHICH STARVING ETHIOPIANS 
die before television cameras, where dictatorships of the 
left and right stifle billions of humans, and where gross 
poverty is a fact of life, idealistic liberal arts students, must, 
It times, feel impotent — battling much greater forces than 
:hemselves. And how can a student neglect the fact that the 
:apitalism that seems to foster some of life's inequities is the 
;ame system that allows him or her to attend college? 

A group of students and faculty members, including some 
rem Agnes Scott and other colleges in the Southeast, 
discussed these dilemmas recently at the symposium on 
Christian Faith and Economic Values held on Hilton Head 
sland. The symposium is sponsored, organized, funded, and 
ed by the men of the First Presbyterian Church of Hilton 
-lead, a group of executives, most of whom are retired. 

Students and faculty members first heard from William B. 
OValton, retired vice-chairman of the board and co-founder of 
holiday Inns, Inc., who told them how he opposed gambling 
3n moral grounds and fought hard in the corporate 
bureaucracy against Holiday Inns' opening up gambling 
;asinos. When that effort failed, he resigned. 

Of course this option is often available to those 
;onfronting moral decisions in the corporate world, but does 
:he resignation of one man, even such a highly placed man, 
Tiatter when a corporation like Holiday Inns finds the lure of 
;;ambling irresistable? No, the students seemed to agree in a 
discussion following the speech that practicalities outweigh 
Tioral imperatives in such a situation. Indeed the executive's 
decision can be compared to the students simply giving up. 

IN ANOTHER SITUATION DISCUSSED AT THE 
conference, what does a highly moral executive do about 
his or her corporation's decision to close a plant and 
:hrow hundreds, if not thousands, out of work? At one 
extreme, should the executive insist that the plant remain 
Dpen to protect those jobs even if it's no longer economically 
/iable? Or should he or she resign? Again, the only realistic 
answer seems to be working within the system to help those 
aid off — and working just as hard to create favorable 
situations at other factories so those people will not be laid 
off. 

At least the executive who resigned recognized the 
problem — and the students seemed to agree that 
recognition- is a key to solving the problem. In the upper 
middle-class society that has spawned most of today's 
students, it would be easy to stick one's head ostrich-like in 
the sand. But not acknowledging the problem doesn't make it 



go away — as America found out when blacks rioted in cities 
in the 1960s. 

THE STUDENTS ALSO DISCUSSED TWO 
questions which they considered before the 
symposium. One of the root questions for our society 
concerns the distribution of wealth. Should those who create 
and accumulate wealth be allowed lo keep and invest their 
own funds? Or should government take a large share of 
private wealth through taxation and reallocate it to 
accomplish social goals through government spending? 

The consensus growing out of the students' discussion was 
that everyone should be given an equal chance in life from 
birth. That would be the only way to alleviate the problem of 
inequality in the United States and the world. The trouble 
with this redistribution of wealth — as those who 
demonstrated on college campuses in the late 1960s found out 
— is that it's not going to come about in the foreseeable 
future. Our system will allow all kinds of dynamic change, 
hut not this one. 

But, if our system is not going to lend itself to societal 
upheaval, then what can we do? As it turns out the answer is 
"many things" because we all have more power than we 
think. Not all the activism of the late 1960s was wasted for 
instance. After all, students protested vociferously in such 
great numbers that they helped fuel American discontent 
against the war in Vietnam. This is not saying that taking 
one's feelings to the street automatically solves anything. But 
it's an available option. 

A more realistic option is first deciding what cause the 
student wants to embrace — whether it is the anti-Apartheid 
movement, the push for worldwide arms control, or for an 
ethical American policy in Central America. Liberal arts 
students are particularly well-placed to identify this problem 
with the exposure to society given them by their English, 
political science, history, and economics courses. 

As Agnes Scott economics professor Dr. William Weber, 
who attended the Hilton Head conference, puts it, "A liberal 
arts student is best equipped to see problems and work to 
solve them. Engineering students might look at the problem 
in the same ways at all times while liberal arts students can 
ponder different solutions." 

Having noted the particular problem, the student must 
work hard at the campus level to build a consensus toward 
solving it. This may mean on the one hand trying to get class 
discussions centered around the issue and, on the other

understand better the science of 
genetic engineering, discuss its 
potential ramifications, and reach 
differing conclusions on the extent to 
which it should be used; in other 
words, how much power should humans 
have over life itself? 

The course comes at a particularly 
pivotal time in the genetic engineering 
controversy. Last year, author and 
lecturer Jeremy Rifkin, through a 
federal lawsuit, successfully kept a 
group of California scientists from 
conducting an experiment in genetic 
engineering. Now the scientists are 
once again experimenting with altering 
a bacterium to raise the frost resistance 
of plants on which it is sprayed. So the

particular issue is environmental 
impact, and scientists themselves — 
many of whom have waged battle after 
battle for the right to investigate — are 
divided on all important questions. 
Will releasing this new organism into 
the atmosphere cause unforeseen 
damage? Will it lead to the destruction 
of vital elements in our environment? 

At first, these questions seem no 
different from the usual environmental 
concerns about PCBs and other

chemical pollutants, a concern perhaps 
amplified by the Bhopal disaster in 
India. But there is one big difference 
between chemical and biological 
hazards. The latter, if successfully 
adapted, can multiply — sometimes at 
a truly mind-boggling rate. No wonder 
that these potentially hazardous 
consequences are on an entirely 
different plane from those of most 
chemical pollutants. Once successful, 
the biological hazard could grow almost 
uncontrollably. 

The proponents of experimentation 
characteristically minimize the 
probability of a disaster and urge 
society to weigh the small chances of 
something going wrong against the 
good consequences of a successful 
experiment. Already, for instance, 
scientists have developed insulin for 
diabetics in a laboratory instead of 
extracting it from horses. Insulin 
produced in the lab is less expensive 
and does not result in complications, 
such as allergic reactions, that insulin 
from horses can cause. 

Opponents point to the little that is 
known about the consequences of the 
experiment and its probabilities; they 
offset the promised good against the 
possibility — however improbable — of 
a new plague with the consequences of 
a thousand Bhopals. 

What is intriguing — and a little 
frightening — to an observer is that 
frequently neither side has firm 
evidence for its claims. So both sides 
deal in probabilities for which there is 
very little data. All they agree on is 
that knowing the way genes are put 
together allowed scientists to change 
them to achieve different effects in 
living organisms. And most 
experiments involve bacterium, in

which DNA can be altered with 
relative ease. Each group takes its 
minimal information and projects an 
outcome amazingly consistent with its 
own scientific ambitions and projects. 
Where data is scarce, speculation 
abounds. 

And what will happen when humans 
begin to think about altering the shape 
or person of the human — an 
inevitable step that was heralded by 
Crick's and Watson's discovery of the 
structure ot DNA. Then what counts 
as knowledge will be up for grabs. Such 
issues are bewildering in their 
complexity and intriguing in their 
promise. Clearly, genetic engineering 
raises questions that scientists cannot 
answer completely at the moment. 

Therefore, it seems apt that the 
Agnes Scott honors seminar, funded 
by a faculty development grant, is 
interdisciplinary. To do justice to such 
deep issues, students would have to 
study the biology of genetic 
engineering, the sociological and 
psychological background of the 
controversy, and the philosophical and 
literary dimensions of the controversy. 

After an introduction discussing the 
seminar's goals, it began its long march 
through history, philosophy, and 
literature — a long march that would 
finally return to the present. The 
seminar's fundamental thesis is that the 
contemporary controversies 
surrounding genetic engineering have 
roots in that Western tradition of 
which the humanities are the guardian. 
Understanding the contemporary 
controversies results from 
understanding their background. 

This last point can be illustrated 
through the writings ot one of the 
protagonists in the genetic engineering 
drama. In arguing that this 
phenomenon is the ultimate evil 
of the technological age, Jeremy Ritlcin 
claims that humankind has adopted the 
wrong attitude towards nature — 
humans should cooperate with the rest 
of nature rather than exploit it. 

But in making such arguments, 
Rifkin is unconsciously using concepts 
and invoking attitudes which come 
from different eras. Evaluating the 
force of his objection depends upon 
knowing, among other things, how 
society's contemporary notion of nature 
developed and how other ages 
understood the relationship between 
humanity and nature. 

So the seminar would begin with 
ancient Greeks and their notions of the 
universe and of nature and end up with 
Darwin — a vast and endlessly

fascinating journey. Finally, the class 
would arrive back at the contemporary 
controversies, look at them again and 
see what the wisdom of those centuries 
can offer to comprehending society's 
present problems. 

Naturally, such a procedure is itself 
controversial. For instance, some feel 

CI Will freshmen 
♦ have the ability

perilous activities? 

that, even if discourse between 
disciplines is possible, freshmen cannot 
possibly have the sophistication to 
engage in such intellectually perilous 
activities. First let them learn biology, 
philosophy, psychology, sociology, and 
literature, then let them try to talk 
across disciplinary lines. 

There is no better answer to these 
arguments than the experience — here 
and elsewhere — of those who have 
tried. The care with which the 
questions are put, the materials 
organized, and the students' thinking 
and writing guided are the real 
conditions for success. 

And what about the execution of the 
faculty's grandiose plan? The syllabus of 
' the course has proven to be remarkably 
durable; the intellectual validity of 
their approach has time and again been 
established. They have discovered 
much that illuminates the contemporary 
controversies, and this has led to high 
ambitions. 

And what are those aspirations? 
Students must have the experience 
of tackling important and difficult 
problems of public policy, analyzing 
those problems, and producing 
solutions. No longer can they be mere 
observers; they must use the best 
of their analytic abilities and 
^, humanistically tempered understanding. 
^i If errors in this regard must be made, it 
is better to err on the side of 
enthusiasm for these goals. And the 
subject of genetic engineering is 
important enough to call on all their 
energy and intellectual talent. This is 
the sort of experience that the 
professors want for their seminar. D

~T^ r. Margaret W. Pepperdene, the Ellen Douglass Leyhum 
JLJ Professor of English and chairperson of the English 
department from 1967 to 1984, retires this year after 29 years at 
Agnes Scott. 
Before coming here she held a tenured position on the English 



tiiculty of Miami University in Oxford, 
Ohio, where, she says, "I had a 96-srudent 
freshman class which 1 rauyht i)n 
rele\'ision. Student assistants graded papers 
and 1 JLLst lectured into a camera." 

She was thinking ot lea\'inK what 
seemed to het a sterile profession when IV. 
Walter Clyde Curry, her major professor at 
Vanderbilt University, reccimmended her 
for a position at Agnes Scott. When she 
inter\'iewed and met ptofessors George P. 
Hayes, Ellen l\)uglass Leyhum, and other 
members of the faculty, she found 
"teachers who were students. Teachers," 
she remembers, "who quietly and 
completely ga\'e themselves to learning 
and to teaching." 

Attracted by this "whole new kind of 
academic world," Dr. Pepperdene joined 
the Agnes Scott faculty in the fall of 1956. 

No description of L)r. Pepperdene in 
the classroom can capture the play 
of It. Her lectures are frequently 
funny, but her ready laugh only enhances 
her serious purpose as she leads her 
students to ask hard questi(.)ns of the text. 
For Th; CMnierhiry Tciks class she still 
types her lectures double-spaced on 8/: x 
11 paper and delivers them from behind 
her fn'orite lectern. E<ich lecture is a fully 
developed, elegantly stRictured essay that 
illuminates the poetry fot her students. 
With every class she makes another 
pilgrimage because she believes that with 
each reading the poetry speaks new and 
fresh and true. She is sensitive to the 
class' moixl and to shifts in her students'

she quickly mo\'es from behind the lectern 
to perch on the edge of her desk, one ttxit

desk. 

he listens to het students' comments 
I and responds to their questions. In 
let freshman class she lecaires less 
often and engages in a free gi\'e-and-take 
situation, gently corrects mistakes, rewards 
insight with prai.se, and frequently answers 
the L|Liestions that shoLild ha\'e been asked 
as vwll as the ones that were. She teaches 
her students from the wealth cif her study, 
but she is also ready to learn what her 
students think and to test their reading 
against the text. 

Dr. Pepperdene honors her students by 
her painstaking preparation for each class 
— preparation earned by long evenings in 
her study at home — and by her careful 
consideration of their questions or 
statements. Her classroom is marked by 
the respect and affection and enthusiasm 
for the poetry that teacher and students 
alike enjoy. 

She came with impressi\-e credentials. 
She earned her undergraduate degree from 
Liuisiana State University, where Robert 
Penn Warren taught her Shakespeare. In 
World War 11, she serx'ed in the U.S. 
Na\7 as a communications officer ot the 
8th Naval District in New Orleans. 

After the war, she received the doctoral 
degree in English at Vinderbik Univ'ersity.

dissertation at The Queen's Uni\'ersity ot 
Belfast, Northern Ireland. The next \'ear 
she recei\'ed a Ft)rd Foundation Graduate 
Fellowship to teach at Vanderhilt. She 
joined the faculty of Miami University as 
an instructor in English in 1952, and two 
years later she was granted tenure and 
promotion to assistant professor. 

In 1954 the Diihlin Institute for 
Advanced Studies named her a fellow and 
the American Associatit)n of Uni\'ersity 
Women granted her a fellowship to 
research Celtic smdies in Dublin. Then, 
in 1956, Dr. Pepperdene received the 
award ccweted hy established artists and 
scholars alike: the John Simon 
Guggenheim Fellowship to support her 
smdies in Old English literature. 
/"^ hortly after Dr. Pepperdene came to 

J Agnes Scott, alumnae secretary Ann 
^^ Worthy Johnsi)n wR)te in the 
Alumnae Qmirttrrly that Pepperdene had 
"made a special place for herself as a 
teacher. " 

Dr. Pepperdene wrote in the same issue 
that the students at Agnes Scott "possess 
an intellecaral energy, an eagerness to 
learn, and a delight in the learning 
process." This mutual regard between Dr. 
Pepperdene and her students has 
continued. 

Throughout her tenure at Agnes Scott, 
Dr. Pepperdene has taught freshman 
English, a section of the sophomore course 
in English literature, Chaucer's The 
Ccmierhiiry Tales, his Truibis aivl Criseyde 
and minor poems, and Old English. The 
Canterbury Tales course consistently enrolls 
not only English majors but students from 
disciplines as diverse as mathematics, 
physics, French, psychology, theatre, and 
chemistry. 

Whenever students needed a course but 
nci instructor was available, C>r. 
Pepperdene often taught it. She has also 
taught numerous students in special smdies 
courses and has directed independent 
smdies for 50 or more English majors not 
only in Old English, Chaucet, and the 
medieval romance, but also in Thomas 
Hardy, Gerard Manley Hopkins, James 
Joyce, T.S. Eliot, Flannery O'Connor, 
Richard Wilbur, and even Dante. 

Rs chairperson of the English 
department. Dr. Pepperdene's 
primary concern remained with 
the smdents, and she inx'olved them in 
activities sponsored by the department. In 
1972, she planned and directed the 
quartercentenary celebration of the birth 
of John Donne, inviting eminent scholars 
from all over the country She edited the 
presentations into the book That SiStik 
Wreath. 

The same year she organized the first 
English department Writers' Festival, in 



which May Sarton, then a visiting 
professor at Agnes Scott; Michael Mott, ' 
recently the author of The Sevei\ Miiuntains 
of Tkrmas Merum; and Marion 
Montgomery, writer- in-residence at the 
University of Georgia; were participants. 
The Writers' Festival became an annual 
event, bringing Donald Davie, Guy 
Davenport, Eudora Welty, Reynolds Price, 
James Merrill, Richard Wilbur, Josephine 
Jacobsen, and numertius others to campus. 

On all these occasions. Dr. Pepperdene 
arranged breakfasts or lunches with 
smdents, or receptions or parties for Agnes 
Scott smdents to have every chance to 
spend time with the writers. 

Dr. Pepperdene's contributions to the 
intellecmal life of her smdents go beyond 
the classroom and the guest lecturers. 
Smdents have in\'ited her many times to 
speak to prospective smdents, incoming 
freshmen at convocation, senior 
investimre, sophomore parents' weekend, 
and numerous other occasions. Last 
summer she was one of three professors 
asked to teach at the inaugural Agnes 
Scott Alumnae College. 

She has also addressed many colleges, 
uni\'ersities, and educational groups on 
literamre and on the \'alues of liberal and 
humane learning. Last spring she was the 
keynote speaker at the symposium 
sponsored by Phi Beta Kappa and the 
Mississippi Council tor the Humanities at 
Mississippi State University for Women on 
"1984: The Human Imperative — 
Technolo,gy and the Humanities in 
Perspective." 

This academic year. Dr. Pepperdene 
has come full circle. Ha\-ing 
resigned as department chairperson, 
she is back where her long teaching life at 
Agnes Scott began — in the classroom 
with her smdents. Chaucer's description of 
the clerk in the general prologue of The 
Canterhiry Tales aptly describes Dr. 
Pepperdene — "gladly wolde he leme and 
gladly teche." 

Through all the poetry and stories she 
has taught, she has touched the place 
where knowledge, belief and being do not 
separate. Her smdents can best testify to 
what their prcifessor once wTOte: 

''Knowledge that possesses 
the heart as well as the head 
pervades the entire being. "

ITH THESE WORDS 
from Athol Fugard's The

colored rcxim of mirrors and 
geometric patterns. 

Miss Helen, the most recent 
of playwright Fugard's 
fascinating women, draws from 
the life and work of the late 
Helen Niemand in New 
Bethesda, South Africa, hut 
Fugard adds, "Miss Helen keeps 
company with Emily 
Dickinson." 

Solitary artists and unusual 
women — Fugard has been 
drawn to them during his 
distinguished career as actor, 
director, and playwright. Like 
his mentors Albert Camus and 
Samuel Beckett, Fugard 
portrays men and women as

hapless existence becomes

A portrait gallery of 
iincimventional women — th 
is what Atht>l Fugard has 
created in the last 25 yeare. 
This playwright revels in 
portraying credible, voluble, 
three-dimensional women. 
Fugard claims to be in awe of 
female friendships: "Put two 
women together in a 
meaningful relationship and 
. . . you pass tR)m chemistry 
into alchemy . . . into an are 
of the mysterious, the 
unpredictable." Alchemy, the 
transmuting of base metal int 
gold, may indeed be the most

women: tantalizing and

After Milly, Fugard turned to 
a younger, poor-white 
Afrikaner woman, Hester 
Smit, 34, who left her Port 
Elizabeth home at 22 for life in 
Johannesburg's back streets. In 
Hello and Goodbye (1965), she 
has a traumatic reunion with

God. It's me." Fugard sees 
Hester as demonstrating the 
"courageous pessimism" to 
knew herself that Camus 
advocates. 

Hello and Goodbye led to 
Boesman and Lena (1969). 
Fugard's Lena is a mixed-breed 
woman who incarnates the will 



to live. Destitute, barren (all 
children stillborn except the 
one who ^ 
lived only six 

months), and battered by her

lifelong companion Riesman, 
Lena still dances and sinys in 
the mudflats where she spends 
one cold evening under the 
stars, a female equivalent of 
Beckett's tramps. She takes 
comfort that her existence has 
been ackntwledged by two 
living creatures — a dog and 
an old Atrikan who dies that 
night by her fire. 

Emasculated by his scxiiety, 
Ek)esman can relate to no one, 
and when Lena challenges 
him, he wants to kill her. She, 
however, has the last word in 
their ongoing battle of wills: 



"I'm alive, Boesman. There's 
daylights left in me. You still 
got a chance. Don't lose it. 
Next time you want to kill me, 
do it. Really do it. When you 
hit, hit those lights out. Don't 
be ttx) late. L\i it yourself" 

Fugard told Mel Gussow of 
The Neiv Yirrk Times that he 
considers B(.ie5nwn and Lerui "an 
examination of a relationship 
between a man and a woman 
in which the man is a bully 
and a chauvinist. ... 1 think 
my wife [Sheila Meinngj has 
been on the receiving end of a 
lot of that sort of greed and 



selfishness. We've got past that. 
I'm a feminist now — and the 
play is dedicated to Sheila" 
(New Yorker, Dec. 20, 1982, 
Page 70). 

In 1972 Fugard created his 
first white professional woman, 
a thirtyish, spinster libranan 
named Fneda Joubert. She falls 
in love with a black high 
schixil pnncipal, Errol 
Philander — a criminal oflense 
under South African law. The 
play, StuitTTumts after an Arrest 
under the Imnurrcdity Act, 
lyrically rectiunts their 
romance, which is ciimplicated 



not only by law, but also by 
morality because Errol is 
married and has a family. It 
also graphically depicts the 
horror of their arrest. 

Of all Fugard's women, 
Frieda comes closest to 
dramatizing the tomients tif 
love and guilt. Before the arresi 
she had ttild Errol; "Go home 
. . . and look after your family 
.... If you haven't got the 
courage to say No ... to 
anyKxiy ... me or her . . . 
I'll do it for you. Go home."

much of her college lite "campused" on

student to join her in ha\'ing wisdom teeth

(Mildred paid for the latter trick when the 
dentist accidentally briike her jav\'Kine. As 
a result, she developed an infection which 
caiLsed her to drop out t)t schtx)l for awhile.) 

Recalling some of her college 
expenences, Mildred said that her respect 
tor people and her positive attimde akuit

life's work with the elderly, orphans, and

where she faced Dean Nannette Hopkins 
regularly to explain her latest prank. 

Mildred's relationship with l\*an Hopkins 
began when she amved at Agnes Scott 
from Augusta, Ga., with a note to the dean 
from Mildred's physician father. On 
prescription paper, her father wrote: 
"Mildred has my pemiission to do anything 
she wants. " 

That might have been all right with 
Mildred's father, but I\'an Hopkins had 
other ideas. Not that Mildred and the dean 
had a bad relationship. O^nte the contrary, 
according to Mildred. 

One weekend, when Mildred and three 
other students were campused, they asked

The next Mcmday, the foursome were

time. Mildred was the last to face the dean 
who by that time, had determined all to ht

Mildred's eyes and said to her, "Mildred, I 
have just one question for you. VX7i\ did yo

she is the essence of the "all for 
love" and "the world well lost" 
which defines these 
Shakespearean heroines; she is, 
in short, a latter-day romantic 
trapped in a system which 
denies her the personal right to 



love. 

With The Road to Mecca 
(1984) Fugard pierfected his 
earlier explorations of female 
psychology. Elsa Barlow, the 
schcxilteacher, and Helen 
Niemand, the sculptress, have 
a friendship bom of mutual 
admiration and need. From 
Elsa's arrival after a grueling 
800-mile car trip in response to 
a suicidal letter from Helen, 
the play unfolds the disciple- 
master, pupil-mentor 
relationship between the two 
women. Edgy, querulous, and 
anguished, Elsa questions 



Helen, and a portrait of the 
isolated artist emerges which 
transcends gender differences. 
Helen both exults in and suffers 
from the consequences of her 
creativity — a garden full of 
cement camels, wise men, 
mythological animals, and 
Easter Island goddesses and a 
house designed to resemble the 
interior of Mecca. 

At the end of the play, 
when Helen admits that she 
can go no further on the road 
to her vision, that she must 
leam to live with the candles 
blown out — "and all that 



means" — melodrama gives 
way to humor as Elsa produces 
some Valium pills as a fitting 
accompaniment to a p(-)t of tea. 
Sublimely ignorant of what 
they are, Helen calls them 
"artificial sweeteners." Elsa 
laughs loudly and agrees that 
yes, that's what they are. As 
the lights come down, the 
tableau is a joyful Elsa ready to 
"leap" trustingly into Helen's 
arms . . . And the airtam folk. D

professor Mary Stewart McDougall and 
Latin professor Lillian Smith. (Dr. Smith 
ivas notorious for her inability to handle a 
:ar. Many alums remember her driving 
through the back of her garage because she 
forgot to hit the brakes. ) 

"It seems for a while 1 spent more time 
:eaching people to drive a car than anything 
dse," Mildred recalls. 

In class, she was often a cut-up, and one 
3f her remarks got her thrown out of class. 
But professors had their fun with Mildred, 
:oo. 

On a Bible test which asked the names of 
:he kings of Israel, Mildred answered, "Onf 
:he Lord knows," and turned in the test. 
Bible professor Alma Sydenstricker graded 
Vlildred's paper promptly: "The Lord gets an 
A,' you get an T.' " 

The administration and faculty 



always felt Mildred and her friends were 
worth watching, Mildred admits, "But they 
always made you feel there was something 
fine about you. " 

This respect and love for pieople that she 
experienced at Agnes Scott carried her 
through the years as she completed her 
graduate degrees in social work, hospital 
administration, and health education. 

Mildred taught high schixtl for nine years 
and then went to work for the Georgia 
Welfare Department, placing orphans in 
homes during the Depression in a pexir, 
mral county She realized that if she were to 
do well in siKial work, she needed propier 
qualifications, s<) she returned to school for 
a master's degree in social work. 

Mildred's next job was 
director of social 



work at the Children's Memorial Hospital in 
Chicago for 12 years. Then she rekxated to 
Augusta to direct s(.x;ial work services at the 
VeterarLS Administration Htispital where she 
placed disabled veterans in the community. 

She always set a goal in each of her jobs, 
worked hard to attain the goal, and once it 
was met, pursued another challenge. 

Her rw(.) greatest challenges met with the 
greatest obstacles — adopting two young 
girls in the early 1960s and purchasing a 
nursing home in 1970. She had no money 
to buy the home and adt)pting children as a 
single parent was virtually impossible. But 
she put to use the same imagination that got 
her intt) trouble so often at Agnes Scott, 
and found ways to become a parent and

In later years, the schiKil reached S)8

It IS not as it GikkI could make such 
decisions tRim the kitty security ot 
reversed percentages — that is 80 percent 
wonderful in her own lite\ind 20 percent 
less so. 

She grew up happy in VC^ilhalla, S.C. , 
graduated from Agnes Scott Qillege in 
1943, worked m retailing, and then 
married. Her husband, L^lick GikkI, was a 
\TvlCA execLiti\e whose manic-depressi\'e 
illness worsened until he exenrually was 
disabled. He died in 1977, aUiut eight 
months after they du'orced. 

During their marriage, Joella GiKxi 
shouldered much ot the responsibility tor 
supptirting their two datighters — Joella, a 
tomier teacher now rearing rwo children in 
Q)lorado, and Margaret, a public defender 
and new mother in Palm Beach Gountv, 
Ha. 

To earn a li\'ing, GihkI taught tor 11 
years in the Palm Beach City Sclnxil 
system, the most affluent schixil system in 
the state. Mo\'ing to Miami when her 
husband changed jobs, GikxI then taught

School children hear such

board chairman Lawrence L. 
Gellerstedt Jr. boasts much 
proficiency in the kitchen, 
but each reveals a special

ibility with breakfast. 

"Oh, I do fix breakfast," 
isserts Gellerstedt, after 
Tiodestly demurring to his 
vife, Mary Duckworth 
jellerstedt '46, on all other 
natters culinary. "But you 
iee, I get up at 4:45, leave 
:he house at 6 or 6:15. 
3efore 1 go, 1 always fix 
"nyself a cantaloupe, a bowl 
jf cereal, orange juice, and 
:offee or tea. And on 
Saturdays, 1 go all out — 
:heese toast, or maybe an 
English muffin." 

Dr. Schmidt, whose 
schedule is probably as 
lectic as her board 
:hairman's, also savors the 
'ituals of the first, solitary 
meal of the day. "I love to 
:at breakfast. It's my favorite 
Tieal," she says. On most 
mornings, her choice is a 
i/ariation on Gellerstedt's 
'Breakfast of Champions," 
:ereal with half-and-half, 
fruit, coffee. "I love grits," 
;he says, in response to a 
query about Southern 
:uisine. "My favorite 
breakfast, though I seldom 
have time to fix it, is sausage 
and grits. I really get upset 
when I don't get good grits 
in a restaurant." 

As for more daunting 
menus, Gellerstedt hails 
frozen foods, TV dinners, 
and a well-known Atlanta 
eatery. The Coach and Six. 

Dr. Schmidt falls back on 
vestiges of her Minnesota 
upbringing: a repertoire of 
Minnesota "hot dishes." 
Known to the rest of the 
world as a casserole, a 
Minnesota hot dish, chez 
Schmidt, may be a "creamy 
noodle" concoction; layers of 
shell macaroni, cream 
cheese, cottage cheese, and 
sour cream topped with 
browned ground beef, 
onions, and tomato sauce. 



Dr. Schmidt even has the 
perfect Minnesota hot dish 
for breakfast — a ham, eggs, 
bread, cheese, and milk 
combination that is 
assembled and refrigerated 
overnight before being 
baked. "It's a marvelous dish 
for a crowd for brunch," says 
Chef Schmidt.

gestures against a world-wide evil can 
be as effective as Jeremiah's crying out 
in the wilderness. But as the late 
president John F. Kennedy said, 'A 
journey of a thousand miles begins with 
a single step." When these small 
gestures are multiplied a thousand 
times or more, people listen. Building a 
consensus is not easy but it can be 
done — as shown by the students 
rights cause in the mid-1960s and, as 
noted, the anti-war revolt of the late 
1960s. 

Interestingly enough, no student at 
the conference came down four-square 
against capitalism — other than 
amending it to give everyone equal 
rights at birth. No one said that 
communism, socialism, or any other 
kind of non-democratic system was the 
best way to address society's woes. Nor 
did anyone decry the advantage given 
him or her by capitalism in attending 
college. The students realized the 
American capitalistic system has its 
flaws, but it IS still the best 
hope for humankind in solving the 
problems that scar the planet. 
Activism, whether simple persuasion 
or noisy demonstrations, is our system's 
best hope for changing the things that 
make life unfair tor most of the 
inhabitants of the globe. 

One can't fundamentally change the 
nature of the system, as people found 
out in the late 1960s. But, with 
determination and energy one can 
make the system fairer, as Americans 
showed then. It is incumbent on 
today's students to make that same 
contribution. They may be a quieter 
generation than those previously but, if 
they are similarly inspired by life's 
inequalities, they can still make a 
difterence. D

AGNES SCOTT NOTED 

FOR POSITIVE MINORITY 

ENVIRONMENT 



■In a recent USA TODAY 
article, Agnes Scott was 
listed as one of the 
predominantly white colleges 
that fostered a positive 
environment for black 
students. 

The article was based on a 
book, The Black Student's 
Guide to Colleges, which was 
the result of a survey con- 
ducted by Brown University 
professor Barry Beckham. 



Beckham asked black stu- 
dents which colleges had 
clo.se relationships between 
students and faculty, and 
black students and white stu- 
dents, and which offered 
activities or courses that edu- 
cated students on African 
and Afro-American culture. 
Agnes Scott was cited fot 
"good academics, support 
services, faculty, and black- 
white relations."

". . . the higher quality of 
the college, the more 
departments and majors 1 
included. Harvard is listed 
under 15 departments, some 
others only under one. The 
typical school in the study 
was noted with tour 
departments." Agnes Scott 
had seven departments listen, 
in the book: art, economics, 
English, foreign language, 
history, pre-law, and 
psychology. 

Rugg interxiewed student-

these chapters are only 
granted to schools with 
"supreme undergraduate 
performance in the libetal 
arts and sciences," he said.

,robury House, a manor 
_ with cottages and gar- 
dens situated on the banks 
of southwestern England's 

River Wye, lies nearer to the Black 
Mountains overlooking Wales than to 
Edinburgh or to London. Yet the estate 
has a distinctly Scottish ambience — 
Agnes Scott-ish, that is. 

For the past 15 years, Brobury House 
has been home to Margaret Andes 
Okarma '52 and her husband and 
family. Since 1980, the estate has been 
the scene ot a unique tra\'el experience 
worthy ot Gourmet or Travel and Leisure 
magazines. With the help ot two either 
Agnes Scott alumnae and a third 
Atlanta-area friend, Mrs. Okarma 
annually otters a series ot summer 
"houseparties" at Brobury. She 
accommodates ctnly 16 guests at a time 
and treats them to the tull pleasures ot 




the English countryside and uianor lite. 

" 'If It's Tuesday, This Mtist Be 
Belgium' is definitely not us," declares 
Mrs. Okarma, sitting in the Buckhead 
li\'ing room of Anne-Scott Harman 
Mauldin '35 during a trip to the United 
States recently. Together with 
Elizabeth (Lib) Blackshear Flinn '58 
and a Sweet Briar alumna in Atlanta, 
Jean M(.)ister, Mrs. Mauldin acts as 
marketing representative for the 
houseparties, showing slides to 
interested groups and mailing brochure^ 
and sample itineraries on request. 
There are no travel agencies, no 
advertisements, no sales pitches; all 
contacts are strictly word-ot-mouth. 

"We like to say that everybody kntnvs 
somebody who knows somebody," Mrs. 
Okarma explains. Though there is no 
official association with Agnes Scott 
College, 'A lot ot our guests — maybe 
15 percent — are alumnae from 
Agnes Scott." 

The typical Brobury houseparty is a 
two-week stay tilled with 
day tiuirs tif

The Brobury houseparty grew out ot 
I summer visit to the Okarma 
esidence several years ago by some 
ongtime Atlanta friends, Elizabeth 
ind Bill Flinn. The original Okarma- 
'linn "houseparty" was so pleasant that 
he two couples decided to try 
ecruiting several more couples from 
\merica for a two-week, paid 
louseparty to show off the estate and 
he Okarma's corner ot England. 

Since Mrs. Mauldin joined the team 
n 1982 — to help relieve Mrs. Flinn 
— the houseparties have taken on a *** 
ife of their own. Guests have heard 
ibout Brobury from Washington state 
o Florida, and quite a tew have 
eturned two or more summers in a 
ow, often with friends and relatives 
n tow. 

While Mauldin and Okarma scarcely 
ook on themselves as entrepreneurs, 
hey're both clearly delighted — and 
omevvhat surprised — with their new 
nid-life "career." Mrs. Mauldin has 
lisco\'ered the challenges (and 
rustrations) of using her own IBM 
'ersonai Computer to keep track ot 
louseparty details such as itineraries, 
;uest lists, and mailings. And Mrs 

Okarma says torth- 
rightly, "I've 




discovered that I iikg. worrying about 
the big stuff — the bills, the quality of 
food coming out of the kitchen, the 16 
different personalities at my table." 

For Mrs. Mauldin, working with the 
Brobury houseparty was "a wondt^rtul 
idea" that capitalized ow her lov§ jbr ,' 
travel. Through Atlanta's Friendlhip , ' 
Force, she had already visited Belgiuip, 
England, and Korea as well as "*-*., 
welcomed numerous Friendship jporcss^. 
visitors to Atlanta. A 

Mrs. Okarma says that after her 
children were grown and living ^ ' 

"J have a t/u'ng about iiomai 'voo&tmg 
their Uves. You turn 50, your children 
leave home. . . . 1 think you should use 
what you've got." -\ '* 

elsewhere, she began to see Brobury 
House itself as something worth 
sharing. "1 have a thing about women 
wasting their li\'es," she says. "You turn 
50, your children leave home .... I 
think you should use what you've got. 
What 1 could do was entertain guests. I 
found that I ct>uld use my talents in a 
way that didn't disrupt the common , 

good, that didn't put my husband 
and children at a disadvantage 
or disrupt their lives." D

make the nursing home hers. 

Mildred became a mother when her 
lather, a prominent physician in Augusta, 
brought her a baby girl who had been 
abandoned. A tew years later, this little girl 
named Jimmie, began praying tor a little 
sister When Mildred found another orphan 
girl, she and Jimmie went to bnng home 
their new addition to the family, whom they 
named Bobbie. Although Jimmie is now 
married, the trio are inseparable. 

juggling miitherhtxxi with the help of a 
nanny, Mildred ran the nursing home, 
Jennings Manor, for 13 years, like a "real 
home." She installed carpets, cleaned the 
facility, and offered individually requested 
meals. She hired the most qualified people 
she could find, carekilly supervised 
activities, and visited patients regularly. 

"A// 1 wanted was for those 

people to be treated right. . . . 

whatever they wanted, as long 

as I had a penny, I'd see that 

they got it. " 

Under her administration, the nursing 
home grew from 17 to 79 beds. 

"All 1 wanted was for those people to be 
treated nght. The nursing home was for the 
residents. Whatever they wanted, as king as 
I had a penny, I'd see that they got it." 

As a full-time mother and nursing home 
administrator, she still found time to be 
involved in her hometown of Augusta. 
There, she has served on the Girls Center 
board, was a consultant to the United Way, 
on the board of the Salvation Army, and 
spearheaded the development ot the Mental 
Health Asstxiation. 

Listed in Wh)'s Wh) of Amenam Women 
and Who's Who m Georgia, Mildred has 
been actively involved with the United 
Way, Georgia Gerontology Asaxiation, 
American Hospital Association, American 
Society for Hospital ScKial Workers, 
Council of the Royal Society of Health of 
London, and Georgia Mental Heakh 
AsstKiation. 

Although she has since stild the nursing 
home and her children are grown, Mildred 
remains active. Former employee and close 
friend Manon Gelzer describes Mildred as 
one who shares her ideas with others, 
supports someone in developing community 
programs, and then gives that individual full 
credit. Mildred's phone nngs continually at 
her home with calls from people asking 
advice t)r help, which she freely gives. 

Her liberal arts education and college 
relationships, she says, formed a foundation 
on which she planned and lived her lite — 
to work hard in whatever she pursued, to 
increase her knowledge, and to attempt the 
nearly impossible — and to win. D

IN APRIL 1974, WHEN ANNOUNC- 
ing the appointment of Vitginia Brown 
McKenzie as alumnae director, Marvin 
Perry, then president of the College, said, 
"Agnes Scott is most fortunate to enlist the 
services of a woman ot Mrs. McKenzie's 
winning personality, energy, and 
managerial ability so necessary for this 
important position." Now, on the eve of 
Virginias retirement, as 1 pause to reflect 
upon that past decade in which Virginia's 
career and my years of most active 
alumnae involvement so closely coincided, 
I am reminded of just how much her 
loyalty and support have meant both to 
me and to the QiUege. 

A native Atlantan whose parents were 
both educators, Virginia Lee Brown 
exhibited both in high schcwl and college 
the leadership abilities which were utilized 
through subsequent chapters of her life. A 
1947 graduate of Agnes Scott with a major 
in journalism, and the wife of John Stuart 
McKenzie, Virginia is the mother of tour 
children, one of whom is an alumna, 
Cla.ss of 70. 

Twice president of the Atlanta Club 
and a team captain in the 75th 
Anniversary Capital Funds Campaign, 
Virginia kept alive those alumnae ties 
which have served her well since she 
joined the Qillege on a full-time basis. 

In the more than a decade of Virginias 
service, alumnae affairs have increased in 
virtually all areas: alumnae giving, 
continuing education, alumnae travel 
groups, alumnae participation in QiUege 
activities and planning, and attendance for 
Alumnae Weekend and Alumnae 
Leadership Conference. The award 
program for recognition of outstanding 
alumnae has become a tradition 
enthusiastically repeated each year; the

Fifty Year club, fomied in Virginia's 
administration, is one ot the most 
energetic in the class organization's 
stmcture. 

&mtinuing interest in the Gillege was 
furthered by a magazine, edited by 
Virginia, and published quarterly 
Continuing interest in alumnae themselves 
was reflected in the systematizing of files 
on each one, begun under Virginia's 
direction. 

Agnes Scott's alumnae director 
represents the College on a national level 
in the Council for Advancement and 
Support of Education, and since 1975, in 
ADAPT, an organization composed of 
alumnae directors and alumnae association 
presidents in 13 U.S. women's colleges. 

In 1977, the first alumnae directory- in 
29 years was published, a successful 
demonstration of the combined efforts of 
the alumnae staff and numerous 
volunteers. At present, alumnae clubs 
throughout the country constitute a 
structure intact and ready to be utilized in 
the approaching centennial campaign. 

Important as all these advances are, 
however, those of us who know Virginia 
best realize that closest to her heart are 
individual alumnae, whose lives make the 
strongest statement for Agnes Scott. 
Sincere respect and regard for alumnae are 
the basis for Virginia's emphasis on the 
importance of the alumnae representative 
body, its board of directors. In cooperation 
with seven alumnae presidents, Virginia 
has worked tirelessly to broaden the range 
of the Kiard's interest, intomiation, and 
involvement. In Virginia's words, "Being 
alumnae director has been a privilege - a 
sheer joy because Agnes Scott alumnae ate 
so very special. " D

OUT THE WINDOW 



ome ot the articles in this issue 
are uncomfortable to read. 
I had trouble editing them 
without sensing waves of strong 
feeling flowing at the same time I 
tried dispassionately to check gram- 
mar and catch comma splices. 

But maybe that's good. Dorothy 
Burns Douglas '61, Eliza King 
Paschall '38, Professor Deirdre Good 
and Jean HoeferToal '65 are raising 
good questions — questions that press 
us to rethink our answers as the world 
changes around us. In this sense, 
change is lifegiving. Like the seasons, 
or turning up the earth each spring 
before planting, change brings us 
new problems to keep us thinking 
and growing. But change is not 
without sadness. 

Last Saturday, change hit head-on: 
My daughter turned 3 years old. Among other things, 
her friends gave her a Lego building set, a pots-and-pans 
play set and a black Hot Wheels Porsche, as well as a 
pair ot overalls. In spite of our pride and excitement 
over our 3-year-old, sometimes I miss the baby who 
always could be comforted by nursing, or the toddler 
who never refused a hug. 

Liberal education prepares us to cope with change 
because it teaches us how to keep asking: Who are we? 
Why are we here? What do we have in common? 

As Eliza Paschall notes in her article, we women 
all over the globe, in all social, economic, and political 
situations. Nations often have complex divisions among 
their people. Surely, these divisions surfaced at the 
United Nations Women's Conference in Nairobi, as they 
have in any other international gathering. 




ive 



Paschall argues that when men 
gather for international conferences, 
they identify' substantive issues, 
"represent the national interests of 
theirowncountries,"and they aren't 
expected to subordinate national 
interests and responsibilities to 
personal concerns. "There are no 
women's issues that are not also men's 
issues and vice versa. . . ," she 
writes. "We cannot bring peace and 
prosperity to women without bring- 
ing peace and prosperity to men." 
Unquestionably true. 

Dorothy Douglas might add: in a 
nuclear age, can we bring peace and 
prosperity to America without bring- 
ing peace and prosperity to the 
world? Can we find peace solely in 
the framework of our national 
interests? 

Eleanor Roosevelt clearly thought differently. Ap- 
pointed to a "do-nothing" position as U.S. delegate and 
chair of the UN Commission on Human Rights, she 
outmaneuvered Secretary of State John Foster Dulles to 
the day in 1948 when she addressed the UN General 
Assembly to speak for passage ot the Uni\'ersal Declara- 
tion on Human Rights. Though without legal force, the 
document has stood as a common standard ot achieve- 
ment for all persons of all nations, without regard to 
color, race, religion or other differences. The declaration 
set forth personal, political and civil rights that have 
been the standard against which the United Nations 
has measured nations' treatment of their people tor 
almost 40 years. 

In this issue ot the magazine, each individual demon- 
strates a sense ot connectedness and responsibility for 
the world around them that has characterized women's 
education and the liberal arts. —Lynn Donham

TURNABOUT 



I am thoroughly enjoying the new 
Alumnae Magazine. Its variety, appear- 
ance, and overall quality are delightful. 
1 was particularly interested in Mr. 
Pousner's article on "The DNA Split." 
We all must struggle with problems of 
science and ethics, and it is very gratify- 
ing to know that Agnes Scott students 
are studying such urgent topics. 

And I love the article on Margaret 
Andes Okarma's ('52) house in England. 
Could you put me in touch with Mrs. 
Mauldin, Mrs. Flinn, or Ms. Moister, 
who arrange the houseparties? Peyton 
and 1 hope to go to England sometime 
during the next year, and this sounds 
fantastic! . . . 

Ruth Heard Randolph '52

The Alumnae Magazine does have 
"sparkle" and "pizzazz." The credit for 
the photo of that darling baby goes to 
you, Julie Culwell, but no word is given 
concerning the charming baby — the 
cover girl or cover boy. Surely the subject 
should be given recognition for being 
such a photogenic and well-behaved 
child!

You asked for it. 

The new-ish ASC Alumnae Maga:!:ine 
is slick, much too slick. While I have 
found the contents to be more or less 
interesting, I'm not terribly impressed 
with the amount of money which must 
go into the magazine's production. It 
looks too much like a report to 
stockholders! 

And am I correct in presuming that 
you are now paying for articles ? A far cry 
from 1949 when I wrote a brief article 
for the then magazine in return for a 
"thanks" from Eleanor Hutchens. 

Madeline Hosmer Brenner '44

As director of publications since March I, 
1 am working to build a network of alumnae 
who are interested in accepting writing 
assignments for the magazine. Please send 
me suggestions for writers or recent pub' 
lished writing samples. —Editor

LIFESP/LES 



Morahan studies body's immune system 




Every once in a while 
it's good for people to 
shake themselves up," 
Page Smith Morahan '61 
said. She did just that 
when she left a comfortable 
home and a good job in 
Richmond and moved to 
Philadelphia to be the 
microbiology chair at the 
Medical College of Pennsyl- 
vania, 'i was intrigued 
with the possibility ot 
being chairman at a small 
private school somewhat 
analogous to Agnes Scott." 

Dr. Morahan is one ot 
only five female medical 
school department chairs 
in the country. The Medi- 
cal College of Pennsylvania 
was one of the original 
women's medical schools, 
founded in 1850, and has 
always attended to the 
needs of women. It's co-ed 
now, but more than 50 
percent ot the student 
population is female. The 
percentage of women in 
most medical schools is 
only 25 to 30 percent, said 
Dr. Morahan. The Medical 
College ot Pennsylvania 



faculty has more male 
professors than female, 
however. Still, she adds, 
that's more female faculty 
members than most medi- 
cal colleges have. 

Dr. Morahan said that 
she accepted the job be- 
cause she "felt like I could 
continue doing research in 
addition to my teaching 
and administrative duties. " 
Her main research explores 
how the body defends itself 
against microbial infec- 
tions, particularly the 
herpes simplex virus, in 
tumors. She agreed that 
AIDS has stolen the stage 
from herpes and explained, 
"AIDS is essentially lethal," 
and that's very rare. "If 
someone is diagnosed with 
AIDS, he will die within 
three years. Herpes is a 
tremendous problem if it is 
not treated, but there is 
little mortality." 

She said her research 
seeks to design better ways 
to fight cancers in mi- 
crobes. Now there are 
three major ways to treat 
cancer: surgery, radiation 



and chemotherapy. A 
fourth treatment, the use 
of interferon, has received 
much attention. Interferon 
mobilizes the body and is 
considered by some to be 
preferable over the use of 
chemotherapeutic drugs 
which harm normal cells as 
well as tumors. Scientists 
are now tr>'ing to replicate 
the body's immunological 
hormones — a whole new 
arm of pharmacology. 
"This will take another 10 
years to perfect, hut 1 
predict that it will be a 
major way to treat cancer- 
ous patients," said Dr. 
Morahan. 

Dr. Morahan credits her 
success to a "good educa- 
tion in science at Agnes 
Scott'* — the chemistry 
degree has the stamp of 
approval of the American 
Chemistry Society — and 
to her experience as a 
technician. "There are too 
many people in faculty 
positions without real 
world experience," she 
said. 

Mentor and employer 
Howard Schneider encour- 
aged Dr. Morahan early in 
her career. "He did some- 
thing relatively unheard of 
then. He put his assistant's 
(my) name on a scientific 
abstract. I then decided to 



go to school full time and 
attend Cornell Medical 
School. " She got her Ph. D. 
from Marquette University. 

Dr. Morahan was a 
Blackfriar and editor of 
Silhouette at Agnes Scott. 
Her interests have since 
diversified; she lives in 
Spring Garden Historic 
District, a historically 
certified neighborhood, 
and IS interested in solar 
energy, gourmet cooking, 
quality craft art and wear- 
able art. Most recently she 
has learned to scuba dive 
and swam the waters of the 
Grand Cayman Islands, 
the Bahamas and Portugal. 
"I took the rugged 10-week 
course with a bunch of 
medical school jocks and 
only four women were in 
the class. I was certified 
and have been diving ever 
since. I plan to dive in the 
Red Sea next year when m\ 
job will take me to Israel," 
she said. 

Dr. Morahan said she 
has learned that "it's not 
easy to have dual-career 
marriages and that one 
needs to be willing to move 
for one's profession even 
though it's very difficult 
and takes an extra commit- 
ment. " — Laurie K. 
McBrayer '83 



Bacon mokes mountains of mugs 



t's been a family joke that 
if one of the children is 
going to a birthday party, 
I ask him, 'would you like 
to take a mug?' It worked 
for a while," said Edna 
McLain Bacon '66. 

Ms. Bacon, a chemistry 
major, has made a lot of 
mugs since returning to 



Agnes Scott for a fine arts 
degree. A former Decatur 
resident, she took craft 
courses at the YWCA and 
Decatur Recreation 
Center. "I always thought 
that you are either artistic 
and create art or you enjoy 
art and you create what 
others have designed. 



14 FALL 1985 



LIFESmES 



Then, I took a creative 
stitchery class and discov- 
ered I could learn how to 
design." 

Ms. Bacon decided that 
she wanted to earn grades 
and credits so she re- 
entered Agnes Scott in 
1976 tor a second degree in 
fine arts and took her first 
potter^' course under Profes- 
sor Robert Westervelt. 

Several years later she 
and her family nroved to 
Cartersville, Ga. 'As a 
consolation tor leaving 
Decatur, 1 set up a studio 
and started selling pottery 
to support my craft." 

Ms. Bacon has taught 
classes at the Adult Craft 
Center in Montreat, N.C. , 
and the Arts Council in 
Cartersville. She has 
created everything from 



wine and ratatouille. "I 
don't have any idea how 
many 4,000 is, but it's a 
lot! I'll never be intimi- 
dated about production 
again," she said. 

"I tell friends that getting 
a job like that one is a 
matter ot timing, luck and 
knowing the right people. " 
She remembers sending out 
a large mailing in anticipa- 
tion ot an upcoming arts 
and crafts show. "One of 
the recipients was Cloudt's 
Catering, and they were 
looking for an artist they 
could commission to make 
the cups." So they called 
her and she made several 
samples; they chose one 
and placed the order. 

Two years ago she de- 
signed and made the 
communion cups for the 



Sloop's gift is teaching the gifted 




coffee mugs to awards for a 
local road race. But her 
greatest coup was a con- 
tract for 4,000 wine cups 
for a Piedmont Park Gour- 
met Picnic on the eve ot 
the Piedmont Arts Festival. 
The cups were more like 
Japanese tea cups, she 
added, and were used for 



General Assembly meeting 
that united the Presbyte- 
rian churches. Her husband, 
Steve, is a Presbyterian 
minister. 

Most recently, Ms. 
Bacon showed her work at 
the Cobb County Jubilee 
Labor Day weekend. — 
Laurie K. McBrayer '83 



Dr. Betty Brown 
Sloop '65 has seen 
education from 
many different angles since 
her graduation from Agnes 
Scott. As a student, she 
went from Agnes Scott to 
Georgia State University, 
where she was certified in 
secondary social studies 
and elementary education, 
and then to North Georgia 
College for her master's 
degree in early childhood 
education. She earned her 
doctorate in educational 
psychology from the Uni- 
versity of Georgia. As a 
teacher, she has been 
involved on the preschool, 
junior high and graduate 
levelsT 

Dr. Sloop's broad per- 
spective on education led 
to her appointment in June 
1983 to Governor Joe 
Frank Harris' Education 
Review Commission, an 
18-month project tor which 
she served as vice chair of 
the personnel committee. 
The committee examined 
preparation, certification, 
staff development, evalua- 
tion and compensation for 
teachers and administrators 
in Georgia's public school 
system. The recommenda- 
tions of the Education 
Review Commission 
tormed the basis of the 
Quality Basic Education 
Act, passed during the 



1985 legislative session. 

Now a special education 
teacher working with gifted 
students at Shiloh Middle 
School in Gwinnett 
County, Dr. Sloop is past 
president ot the Georgia 
Association tor Gifted 
Children. Last summer, she 
served on the Professional 
Standards Commission, 
which makes recommenda- 
tions to the state Board of 
Education, and was also 
assistant director of instruc- 
tion for the Governor's 
Honors Program, an inten- 
sive, six- week program for 
academically outstanding 
rising juniors and seniors. 
At Governor's Honors, she 
said, "I was able to combine 
my two great loves — work- 
ing with teachers and 
working with highly moti- 
vated students." 

In their home counr\' ot 
DeKalb, Dr. Sloop and her 
husband, Steve Sloop Jr., 
pastor of Emory Presbyte- 
rian Church, work in PTA 
at Avondale High School, 
where their three children 
attend. 

One might wonder if 
this dedication to educa- 
tion runs in Dr. Sloop's 
family; after all, her grand- 
father, James Ross McCain, 
was the second president of 
Agnes Scott College.

Guest gives women 'just the facts' 



Felicia Guest '66 said 
Agnes Scott instilled 
in her a hunger to be 
a writer. She started fast — 
writing pamphlets for 



Grady Hospital's Family 
Planning Center following 
graduation. "My commit- 
ment to the subject area 
was secondary," she said. 
Continued 



AGNES SCOTT ALUMNAE MAGAZINE 51 



LIFES1YLES 



Nov\', more than 15 years 
later, Ms. Guest has a 
reputation and expertise in 
women's reproductive 
health and acts as training 
coordinator for the Re- 
gional Training Center tor 
Family Planning, part ot 
the Oh'Gyn department at 
Emor\' University's School 
of Medicine. 

"It's a Held I expect to 
stay in; it changes all the 
time. One important issue 
is women's reproductive 
autonomy, which must 
exist before women ha\'e 
choices," she explained. 
During the next 15 years 
Ms. Guest expects to speak 
to the needs of women who 
are in the second half ot 
their reproductive lite. 
"The hahy boomers — the 
majority of the popula- 
tion — will be leaving the 
baby-bearing years. They 
will need to know about 
menopause, calcium defi- 
ciency, sterilization and 
routine health care." 

"1 have never met a 
woman who felt that all of 
her questions had been 
adequately answered. 
There is a great audience 
out there for news about 
reproductive health." 

Last summer Ms. Guest 
took a sabbatical to revise 
M>' Body, My Health, a 
700-page book she helped 
write and edit, now a 
classic in the tield. Last 
revised in 1980, "the sec- 
ond edition had nothing 
about pre-menstrual syn- 
drome, routine hormone 
replacement for meno- 
pausal women, or in vitro 



fertilization. Also, the 
chapter about the Pill was 
ver\' negative," she said. 
"Now the news is much 
more positive. Research 
forces you to change your 
intellectual opinions." 

Four days each week Ms. 
Guest teaches and writes at 
the training center. "I 
write so women can stay 
current, and I teach so 
professionals can stay cur- 
rent." She visits two to 
three cities each month 
among the eight southeast- 
ern states that have family 
planning centers to "keep 
their stafts abreast of what's 
going on in the field. " The 
fifth day she commits to 
freelance writing. 

She also helped write 
Contraceptive Technology, a 
standard manual for health 
professionals now in its 
12th international edition. 

Ms. Guest said that the 
tirst books on contracep- 
tion arose from the women's 
movement and were \'ery 
political. In writing My 
Body, My Hea/th,"we 
wanted to create a book 
that was politically neu- 
tral — one that gave women 
just the facts. I think that 
we were very' successful in 
that. Consumer Reports 
would not have adopted 
our book if it had been 
political." 

According to Ms. Guest 
the '80s woman "just wants 
the facts. She knows it's 
okay to demand services 
and ask questions from 
doctors. She's more able to 
take care of herself now. " 
— Laurie K. McBrayer '83 



One's surplus is 
another's supper 





hen a commercial 
freezer broke in 
an independent, 
Memphis grocery store, 
Virginia L. Dunaway '56 
was among the tirst to 
know. She doesn't fix 
freezers, but she is director 
of the Memphis Food 
Bank, and that was all the 
grocer needed to know. 
The Memphis Food Bank, 
and some 75 other non- 
profit Food Banks like it in 
the country, solicits food 
donations from wholesal- 
ers, distributors, retailers 
and others in the food 
industry to be passed to 
worthy agencies who help 
teed hungry- people in the 
community. The goods are 
all high-quality, whole- 
some foods which tor one 
reason or another are un- 
marketable to consumers. 
The Memphis grocer 
chipped in some 5,000 
pounds of TV dinners, pot 
pies and other frozen goods. 

"Sitting in Rebekah 
(and working toward a 
history degree) I never 
dreamed I'd be working 



with a program like this," 
says Ms. Dunaway, who 
now manages an 18,000 
square-foot warehouse and 
is well-versed in trucking, 
food distribution and food 
warehouse sanitation. "I 
have found, though, that 
my Agnes Scott education 
has served me well," she 
says. The writing skills she 
gained at Agnes Scott have 
helped her, no doubt, in 
her frequent writing ot 
proposals and reports. But 
even more important, Ms. 
Dunaway says, "I gained 
self-confidence through my 
education. I feel that I can 
accomplish whatever needs 
to be done." 

A strong believer in 
community service, she 
was working with VISTA 
(Volunteers In Service To 
America) and MIFA 
(Metropolitan Inter-Faith 
Association) when the 
opportunity to establish a 
food bank in Memphis 
arose. She helped develop 
the program and became 
director. She manages 
both operations and public 
relations, heightening 
community awareness ot 
the food bank's services 
and soliciting support tor 
the program. 

It all adds up to tangible 
results, she says. "I really 
enjoy being in a position 
where I can mobilize people 
to help solve a community 
problem and where I can 
see that what we're doing 
makes a difference." — Lee

Hand-crafted 
Homes 



by Alisa Wendorph 



From the second floor 
balcony, job superin- 
tendent Karl McPherson 
and Judy Mozen go over 
blueprints of a "spec" 
house in Boulder Creek. 
Behind them is the arch- 
way of the front entrance. 




A small woman backs out of 
the shiny black Volvo wagon, 
stuffing a roll of blueprints 
under her arm. The Georgia clay of 
the building site matches her two 
pigtails, gathered tight with red craft 
yarn. Her shadow, daughter Chelsea, 
9, protectively balances a breakfast 
bowl of yogurt on a sawhorse in what 
will be the garage. Wearing Sasson 
jeans, tennis shoes and a bright 
flowered shirt Judy Jackson Mozen 
'67, designer and builder, stands out 
among the sunburned men with 
carpenter belts. 

Only a few of the workmen even 
glance as she enters the framed 
house. Another shadow, looking 
much like a frenzied businessman in 
shorts and a T-shirt, seeks her advice 
immediately. Karl McPherson, job 



superintendent, explains the 
plumber's dilemma and solicits Judy's 
quick response, "The faucet must go 
here so the owner can reach it 
without leaning too far over the tub 
to turn it on," she says. 

Judy smiles a lot as she talks to the 
workmen. Her voice is a soft alto and 
often sounds like a patient mother. 
"Sometimes that is a disadvantage," 
said Judy. "Someone meets me for the 
first time and thinks I don't know 
what I'm doing. That 1 can be 
pushed around. But I've been in this 
for almost 10 years and I've learned 
a lot. I just like to pick their brain 
first. Then I make the decision based 
on all the information I've gathered. " 

She does not like to compromise 
if the result is something less desir- 
able for the homeowner. Instructing 



AGNES SCOTT ALUMNAE MAGAZINE 71 



the plumber, she insists on more 
spigots outside, "I can't stand an 
expensive house that has hoses 
ever^'where because there aren't 
enough (faucets)." She doesn't 
scrimp when aesthetics are at stake. 

An architect or designer is inter- 
ested in the final look and "workabil- 
ity" of a house. But the builder must 
build the house within an estimated 
cost. And building costs saved means 
profit gained. Judy designs the house 
ami is the builder. "Many feel that it 
is a conflict of interest for a builder 
to design a house; I disagree," said 
Judy. "My heart and ego are in this 
house. While I want to get my money 
out of it, I'm not about to sabotage 
my design, which is an advantage to 
the homeowner." 

"Judy is a perfectionist," said Dr. 
Eugene Davidson. When he and his 
wife first saw their house it was 
basically finished. "I don't like things 
done sloppily," said Davidson. "Too 
many houses built in Atlanta, in any 
price range, are done sloppily. This 
house was built with a lot of care. If 
Judy saw something not done well, 
whether we had even noticed it or 
not, she'd tear it apart and do it 
over." Unsatisfied with their previous 
homes, the Davidsons looked at more

fireplace, with copper and brass iiilaid 
desist, characterize Handcrajted Homes. 




than 100 houses, hunting one they 
would not have to spend all their 
time and money rebuilding to their 
specifications. "This house was built 
by craftsmen rather than just 
builders," added Davidson. 

Dot and Jerr>' Blum have been in 
their house, designed and built by 
Judy, four and a half years. "1 feel 
like it's only been six months," said 
Jerry, general manager of radio 
station WQXI 94Q. "We wanted 
high quality and seeing the homes 
Judy had built, we were determined 
to have her build ours when we were 
ready. The building experience was 
so pleasant, I would gladly do it 
again. She's honest and does quality 
work." 

Quality work on unusual designs 
is difficult to find. "There are few 
contract construction workers in 
Atlanta who do quality woodwork or 
rockwork. So we trained a handful 
of folks who are not on our payroll 
but whom I keep calling back to do 
the work on our homes," said Judy. 
Blum is pleased, however she does it. 
"Our house is not the traditional 
Georgian house (square). It was 
custom built and the flow of the 
house and the construction are a 
piece ofart." Patiently, Judy explains 
to the hovering workmen, "I don't 
want to come into just a kitchen, I 
want to come into a nice room." 

Judy enjoys relating to the client 
family and wants their home to feel 
personal, to feel warm. In that she 
is successful. "We've been in our 
house over a year and love it," said 
Davidson. "The combination of 
setting and the way the house was 
built makes it unusual. The stone 
and wood create a nice balance of 
natural materials. It's more sophisti- 
cated than most in Georgia and very 
livable. It's fun, a pleasure to live in." 

The attention to detail, a large 
part of Judy's success, she says she 
acquired at Agnes Scott. She ma- 
jored in political science and history. 
"The biggest thing Agnes Scott 
contributed to what I'm doing now 



is the need for perfection. In English, 
we had to do it over and over 'til it 
was right, and that's important in 
what I'm doing now. " she said. Judy 
is not a licensed architect — only 
commercial builders need a license. 

'At this stage I can't see taking out 
five years from work to go back to 
school, my work doesn't fit their 
mold. Besides, I don't need a license. 
There is something about the Amer- 
ican homesteader that will always 
preserve the right of someone to buy 
their own land and build their own 
house. " She adds, grinning, "I would 
love to teach some of the things I've 
learned, but I don't think they're 
ready for a woman." 

Judy got much of her experience 
by watching and making comments 
as her ex-husband, Tom, a licensed 
architect, designed houses. "I was 
teaching high school social studies 
in the Atlanta school system when 
Tom and his partner purchased some 
property to build the Rising Sun 
subdivision. I convinced Tom to let 
me design a house. I still have the 
cardboard model house I designed." 
Tom and his partner built the house 
which quickly sold for more than anv 
of the previous homes they had built 
in the area. "Of course, I didn't get 
any money for that one," said Judy. 
"So for the next one I requested 
$250. Peanuts, right!" 

Within two years she left teaching 
and was working in partnership with 
Tom as half owner/designer/builder of 
Handcrafted Homes. She still misses 
teaching. "1 miss being able to go 
home at the end of the day and not 
think much more about the job until 
I go to work the next morning. 
But more than that 1 miss the kids 
and the friendships, and the feeling 
of contributing something to the 
community. 1 just don't feel the same 
sense of community service, except 
now I'm giving Atlanta something 
artistic to look at. " That's an under- 
statement. 

Handcrafted Homes stand out in 
a crowded neighborhood. "Many 



18 FALL 1985 



builders repeat an architect's design 
over and over, even within one 
subdivision. It's easier to repeat 
because you've worked out many of 
the kinks," Judy said. She wants 
each house to be different. Among 
the work that marks a Handcrafted 
Home is extensive rockwork. 

Lynn Smith has been doing the 
rockwork on Judy's houses for two 
years. He explained that various 
types of rock are ordered from a local 
company. "She orders lava rock 
especially because it gives a good 
effect to have one in the wall every 
now and then," said Lynn. "It's like 
putting together a j igsaw puzzle , " he 
said, carefully fitting another piece 
into an outside wall of rock. 

An onyx and stone bathtub, stone 
floors, rock waterfalls and fireplaces 
with rocks and semi-precious stones 
are examples of the rockwork that 
graces the insides of many of her 
homes. 

Other designs include a hand- 
tooled copper and brass fireplace and 
a stone fireplace with an inlaid 
copper design. She uses stained glass, 
hand-carved windows, specialty 
imported woods, and hand-split 
cedar shakes (for the roof finish). 

"Clients usually hire me because I 
do unusual and different designs 
using unusual materials," explained 
Judy, who has only done two "spec" 
houses. "Building a 'spec' house is 
more scary because you speculate 
that you can sell it," said Judy. "I 
prefer to work with clients where I 
can be more creative in my design. 
It gives me the opportunity to try 
something exciting." 

Judy is now sole owner, designer 
and builder for Handcrafted Homes. 
Though her job takes up much of her 
waking hours, Judy is firm about her 
priorities. "My children are most 
important in my life. I make myself 
set up time with them so they are 
not ignored." 

Her son Rand, 13, and Chelsea 
both go to Westminster Schools. 




Chelsea has been going to work sites 
since she was two weeks old. "She 
kind of grew up going to the sites," 
said Judy. When she's not at camp, 
she stills goes with her mom to the 
office and the building site. About 
four years ago, Chelsea was going to 
be a builder, then a computer pro- 
grammer. Now she's going to be a 
chemist. "The guys (workmen) are 
real used to her. She used to take 
mud (cement) and put a nail or rock 
or something in it and sell it to the 
guys for a penny or a nickel." Sure 
enough, with her own creativity 
apparent, Chelsea soon arrives with 
a "spice cake" made of styrofoam and 
sawdust, and what is obviously 
meant to be a hot dog, complete with 
ketchup created from leftover red 
wiring. 

"Besides my kids and work, well . . . 

I love plants," said Judy, fishing for 

outside interests. 

'And cooking," pipes Chelsea. 
"Oh yes, I designed a gourmet 

cooking school once and have taken 

some cooking classes. I love to cook 

when I can squeeze it in." 

Judy, Rand, Chels, three cats and 

a kitten recently moved, from Atlanta, 

to a new home/office in Roswell. "It's 



The front entrance of Dot andjerry Blum's 
house, designed and built by Judy and Tom 
Mozen, includes a pool. Handcrafted 
Homes cost between $250,000 to $1 
million. 



more convenient to have the office 
below the house and near the build- 
ing sites, at least until I can build a 
house on our creek lot in Boulder 
Creek," added Judy. One of the cats 
caused today's late arrival on the site. 
"Asha is sick," she explained. "She's 
been part of the family since 1 was 
at Agnes Scott. I just couldn't leave 
her at the vet; if something happens 
she needs to be at home." 

While Asha was this morning's 
concern, the placement and size of 
the water heaters for the house she's 
currently working on in Boulder 
Creek occupied much of her time 
away from the site and office yester- 
day. "I can't stand to go into the 
kitchen and have to wait for hot 
water," Judy tells the plumber, 
discussing the water heaters. To me, 
she adds, "I build a house as though 
I were going to live in it." To the 
workmen, 'And watch that crawl- 
space, I'm not going to have freezing 
pipes in this house. "D

The bomb that dropped Aug, 6 1945. 

ohonged everything, 

Forever 



Let's assume, young lady, " Billy 
Bryan Burns was saying, "that 
neither one of us had the atomic 
humb, and let's assume that the Rus- 
sians have twice as many human beings 
as we do and the Chinese have three or 
four times the amount of human beings 
we do. What is the deterrent to war? 
How do we defend ourselves? Do we 
negotiate from weakness?" He smiled 
broadly, a father-knows-hest kind of 
smile. "Without the bomb, I think we 
ivould be in a terrible, terrible position, " 
he went on. "If we can keep from 
making a mistake, I think it's the 
greatest thing we've ever had in the 
whole world. " 

"But where are we heading, 
Daddy?" his little girl, Dottie, 
answered. She ivas Dorothy Burns 
Douglas now, 46, married and the 
mother of two, but she was still his little 
girl 

"We're not going anywhere, Dottie, 
honey, " Bill;y said. "We're going to stay 
static, li(ine\, in this position of no war, 
until hopefully the United States finds 
some way to neutralize communism. " 



110 FALL 1985 



They sat over lunch at a handsome 
country club in North Carolina, 
talking seriously about the bomb for 
practically the first time since she 
was in high school. His mood had 
been expansive, seating his guests at 
his table. His white Eldorado was out 
on the lot, and his navy blazer, his 
Kelly green pants and his golf-course 
tan fairly radiated money and ease. 
He moved about the club with the 
assurance of a man who owned the 
place, as, fractionally, he did; he and 
Helen Burns were building their 
dream home on the grounds for his 
retirement. But a summer luncheon 
of fruit salad and iced coffee went 
half noticed between father and 
daughter in the intensity of their 
family quarrel. They had become 
America debating across the divide 
between the generations and the 
sexes, talking about how much 
longer the world would sur\'ive the 
bomb. 

Forever was Billy Bryan Burns's 
guess, when he thought about the 
subject at all. Mostly, if he could 
avoid it, he did not. Ho had loaded 



the first primiti\e A-bombs, waved 
them off for Hiroshima and Nagasaki 
and thought little more about them 
than that they were his ticket home. 
He reckoned long afterward that he 
might have gone crazy if he had seen 
the mushroom clouds, but he hadn't, 
and if he had had nightmares about 
the war on his return, as his wife and 
daughter said, he did not remember 
them. Sometimes he wondered why 
he didn't feel guilty about what the 
bomb had done. Sometimes he 
thought he should feel guilty for not 
feeling guilty. 

He had had other things on his 
mind in the years after the war; he 
had been too busy seeking his for- 
tune, and to his way of thinking, the 
bomb had made the world safe for 
him and people like him to do so. 
His generation had come back feeling 
good about the country and them- 
selves and had created more wealth, 
raised more houses, fathered more 
babies and realized the American 

They were getting nowhere, two debaters 
armored in certamty and restramed by lore. 



dream more times over than any in 
our history. Billy still telt a tingle just 
thinking about all the men he 
knew — guys he had grown up with 
in South Florida — who had gotten 
rich after the war. 

He was one of them, a millionaire 
at 66. He had started with a $7,000 
nest egg and a correspondence school 
certificate in general insurance, and 
had pyramided them into a fortune 
in insurance, real estate and 
mortgage lending. He had had a 
sideline in elective politics as com- 
missioner of the Port of Palm Beach 
for 22 years and was talked about tor 
governor of Florida. But turning 
money into more money was his gift 
and his calling. A savings and loan 
association he started in West Palm 
Beach with some partners was the 
fastest growing in the nation when a 



larger, wealthier outfit bought them 
out. The millions Billy got for his 
stock financed his admission to the 
leisure class but did not wholly 
compensate him tor the loss of his 
company. He had always believed 
that winning was everything, and 
the buyout reconfirmed his corollary 
rule — that to win, you had to deal 
from strength. 

"May I express my concerns to you?" 
Dorothy ivas saying. She and the 
movement people she was working with 
had studied the numbers, "And what's 
overwhelming, " she said, "is that there 
are 55,000 weapons. OK? We have 
about 30,000. They have anywhere 
from 23,000 to 28, 000, depending on 
which estimate you believe. " 

A window of vulnerability had 
opened in her certitude, and Billy 



pounced. "So we really don't know 
what we got compared to what they 
got, " he said. 

"J think most people who are in the 
Pentagon will say that we are at parity, " 
Dorothy said. "But what is overwhelm- 
ing is if you take the destntctive power 
of all this. If you take the total air 
bombardment of World War U, all 
sides — what we dropped, England 
dropped, Germany, japan — it equals 
about 3 million tons of TNT. We have 
in the arsenals of the nuclear nations 
more than 6,000 World War Us. One 
Poseidon submarine is equal to three 
Worki War Us — one little Poseidon. 
And the new Trident — one Trident will 
have 85 megatons of destructive power, 
equal to 25 World War Us. And the 
Russians are doing the same thing. If 
we build three weapons a day and they 
build three weapons a day, when is it

going to slop! When yim can kill them 
40 times and they can kill you 20 times, 
what's the point?" 

"Honey, we're trying toax'oid war, " 
Bi//\ .said. "That's the point. " The ice 
cubes were melting into the coffee. 
"Now look. Dottie — Russia is trying to 
spread its communistic philosophy 
throughout the world. Do you think they 
can spread that philosophy from a 
position of military weakness! No. 
ma'am! Let me tell you, hmey. if I sit 
down to a table and I'm trying to 
accomplish something and those men 
are 10 times wealthier them I am. I don't 
have a chance to negotiate with those 
people. The same thmg is true with 
Russia. " 

"You're saying we're in a psychologi- 
cal war — is that what you're saying?" 
Dorotlw pressed. "If that's true, where 
do you think xce're going to be in the 
year 2000?" 

Dorothy Douglas worried a lot 
about the year 2000. She won- 
dered whether there would he 
one. She and her daughter, Laurelyn, 
now 17, were watching the news one 
evenmg a tev\- years ago and heard 
Adm. Hvman Rickover, the god- 
father ot atomic submarines, guess 
bleakly that there was going to be a 
nuclear war someday. Laurelyn, in 
her bathrobe, had looked at Dorothy 
with searching hazel eyes. She wasn't 
sure she wanted to grow up and ha\'e 
children ot her own, she said. She 
was too frightened ot the bomb. 
Dorothy's commitment to the 
peace movement, already begun, 
deepened thereafter into a fixation; 
she was fighting so hard to save the 
future tor her children that, for a 
time, thev felt shut out ot the present. 
She had herself come of age without 
thinking much about nuclear 
weapons, accepting on faith — her 
daddy's faith, really — that they were 
an insurance policy against war. She 
was an all-around girl in high school, 
class president, prom queen and 
leading lady in a school play; the age 



ot anxiety tor her centered on 
whether Ruddy Reynolds, better 
known in later years as Burt, would 
notice her on his visits with a girl he 
was dating across the street. Her 
social conscience deepened in her 
years at Agnes Scott College in 
Decatur, Ga. , studying, she thought 
then, to become a doctor and witnes- 
sing the flowering of the civil-rights 
movement. She met Martin Luther 
King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy, and, 
from a girlfriend's house, watched 
Bobby's brother Jack walking on the 
beach in front ot his family's winter 
compound; she let her schoolwork 
go hang while she worked for his 
election. 

He nearly outli\'ed her. She fell ill 
the year Kennedy won the presi- 
dency; she was hoarse and tired, and 
her hands turned purple as if she were 
cold. The first guess was mononucle- 
osis. The next, and more ominous, 
was scleroderma, a mysterious and 
sometimes life-threatening malady 
attacking both the skin and the 
internal organs. Dorothy spent much 
of her senior year in the infirmary, 
getting weaker, and most of the 
summer afterward in the metabolic- 
disease unit at the National Institutes 
of Health in Bethesda, Md. Her 
roommate had been a contender for 
Miss America; the room was filled 
with the scent ot roses left by the 
young woman's suitors, and with the 
possibility ot her death. 

The siege was an education for 
Dorothy at 21 in the coiitingencv of 
life, one that did not end with her 
discharge; it could not be said tor 
certain then whether she had two 
years left or 50, and she found herself 
bargaining with God for more time. 
She spent a long introspective pass- 
age thereafter, a sorting-out period 
iif rambling dri\'es in the country and 
moments of prayer in wayside 
churches. The leaves had ne\er 
seemed greener to her, or the sound 
ot birds more achingly beautiful. 

She was only just re-entering lite, 
studying microbiology at the Unix-er- 



sity ot Florida, when Moscow im- 
planted its missiles in Cuba and the 
superpowers edged toward the brink 
ot nuclear war. Dorothy trusted 
Kennedy but she was frightened, and 
she headed south in her black Volks- 
wagen, drixnng closer to the missiles, 
to be with her parents. They waited 
together, and one night near the end 
the three ot them drove up the coast 
to a quiet place where Billy had often 
taken Dorothy fishing in her girl- 
hood. The sky was clear and starry. 
They nosed their boat up the Inter- 
coastal Waterway and out onto an 
inlet; then they cut the lights, 
dropped the anchor and fished in the 
still waters with a radio plaving soft 
music in the background. "This 
could be the end," Dorothy thought. 
"This could be the last music I'll e\er 
hear." Billy was strong. That night, 
the Russians backed off. 

"/ really hope, " Billy was saying, 
"and I think most people hope, that 
we'll find some way to neutrali::e the 
atomic weapon. That's our only hope. 
We're not going to negotiate with the 
Russians. It's not to their adxantage. " 

"Well, why not?" Dorothy asked. 
"They want to survive like we do. " 

"Listen, " Billy said, "they do not put 
the same price tag on life as you do or 
1 do. Vou'i'e got to understand that. 
Different philosophies of different 
people. Life to them n\ay not be nearly 
as important as it is to you. basically 
because you enjoy life more. Your 
stantlirJ of lamg is so much higher You 
weigh that against your other advan- 
tages, and they're not going to negotiate. 
They aren't going to gi'ie up their 
primary position, which they have. " 

"What difference does it really make 
how many we have and how many they 
have anyway?" Dorothy asked. She 
produced more arginnent.s, more num- 
bers, and ivas getting nouhere. Bi//\ 
had begun stealing glimpses at his 
u'uteh. She had sent him some papers 
a couple of years before, but he hadn't 
read them, preferring the harder-line 
liews of his Air Force journal. 



112 FALL 1985 



"You have got to be in a position of 
strength, " Billy continued. Dottie didn't 
understand, having never run a com- 
pany or met a payroll; she thought 
geopolitics was like a marital problem, 
something you could sit down and talk 
out, when it was in fact more like 
business. "If you have a million dollars 
and I have a million dollars, " he said, 
"neither one of us has the advantage, 
but we have a chance to talk about it. 
If you have 2 million and I have I 
million, you are going to dominate. " 

The bond between father and 
daughter was strong, sometimes 
almost too enfolding. Billy was 
a tender and vulnerable man under 
his leathery hide and did not easily 
look pain in the eye; he had had a 
hard time visiting Dorothy in the 
hospital when it looked as if she 
might be dying, and a hard time 
again accepting her marriage, fearing 
that he might lose her. She had met 
John Douglas at Duke University, 
where she was pursuing her graduate 
work in neuro-anatomy, and he was 
a fellow in cardiology. They dated 
and, in the spring of 1967, were 
married. Billy was unhappy. 

Dorothy bore a daughter and a son 
quickly, 13 months apart, and, 
suspending her own ambitions, 
settled, into the comfortable life of a 
doctor's wife. She followed John's 
peregrinations to teaching hospitals 
m San Antonio, Little Rock, New 
Zealand and finally in Johnson City, 
Tenn. , where he became chief of 
cardiology at East Tennessee State 
University's new medical school. Her 
family became her career and what 
energies she had left over were de- 
voted to the civic pursuits of the 
upper middle class: the arts council, 
the repertory theater, the Montessori 
school board, the League of Women 
Voters. In San Antonio, she had 
worried about the SAC bombers 
flying low in and out of Kelly Air 
Force Base with their nukes, right 
over her head; in New Zealand, she 
had watched demonstrators in boats 



splash a Poseidon submarine with 
yellow paint and had mainly felt 
sorry for the sailors. But she did not 
engage with the subject until the 
night her friend Betty Bumpers 
called from Washington and asked, 
"Dorothy, how do you feel about 
nuclear war?" 

The two of them had met during 
Dorothy's years in Little Rock, when 
Betty's husband. Dale, was governor 
of Arkansas. Their common interest 
then lay in programs promoting the 
arts, the sort of good work thought 
more suitable to First Ladies and to 
doctors' wives than worrying about 
the bomb. But Betty was worrying 
about it and was organizing a new 
group called Peace Links to educate 
people to prevent nuclear war— a 
women's group, because women were 
less wedded than men to violence. 
Dorothy was drawn along by Betty's 
passion, and the night her own 
Laurelyn talked about not wanting 
to bring children in to a world 
afflicted with the bomb, her conver- 
sion to the cause became total — so 
total that it crowded practically 
everything else out of her life. 

Her first reaction was to read 
everything, on all sides of the subject, 
as if it were her doctorate she was 
working on and not the future of the 
world. She guessed later that her 
research had been a way to avoid 
doing anything, a last vestige of a 
lifetime of denial that anything was 
fundamentally wrong. The house 
was littered with her books, 
magazines and learned journals, and 
the TV stayed tuned to cable news 
deep into the night; every crisis 
seemed to her seeded with the poten- 
tial for nuclear war. At a second 
stage, knowledge led to despair, at 
the sheer scale of the problem and at 
the difficulty of getting anyone in 
Johnson City beyond the hounds of 
the university campus to take her 
seriously. She worked the phone for 
hours, and even when the answers 
were friendly, a sense of futility 



sometimes came over her. This is 
impossible, she thought more than 
once; she was a Tennessee housewife 
mixing in the business of superpower 
politics, talking to other housewives 
about MlRV's and Tridents and the 
cosmic questions of war and peace. 

For a passage of six months or so, 
her household suffered from her work 
and her moods. "Mom, we wish you 
wouldn't do this," her son, Glenn, 
now 16, told her once; until she 
explained that she was doing it all 
for them, he and Laurelyn were 
jealous of the movement and dis- 
turbed at being asked at school if 
their mom was a communist. Her 
marriage was tested as well. The 
phone bills were running to $300 a 
month, and the table talk had to do 
with the folly of mutual assured 
destruction, illustrated with charts of 
projected deaths in an exchange of 
nuclear weapons. John's appetite for 
the subject was limited, after a hard 
day on the cardiology service, and 
their life was punctuated by the 
sound of slamming doors. "You're 
obsessed with this!" he shouted, 
fleeing the house. "I can't stand it!" 

But he found his own way into the 
movement, listening to one of its 
spokespersons. Dr. Helen Caldicott, 
over the car radio one day; she 
seemed to be speaking to him, doctor 
to doctor, and when he got home, 
he asked Dorothy, "What should I 
do?" In three months he had 
launched his own vehicle, a chapter 
of Physicians tor Social Responsibil- 
ity, and was talking throw weights 
and kill ratios with his wife. Johnson 
City remained unfertile territory, 
"the buckle of the Bible belt," the 
managing editor of the local paper 
called it; its politics wasarc/i-archcon- 
servative, and Dorothy achieved a 
certain notoriety in some parts of 
town as "that peacenik liberal. " But 
she went doggedly on with her 
presentations, perhaps 200 of them, 
to Kiwanises and Junior Leagues and 
garden clubs — anyone willing to

On Her Terms 



by Faye Goolnck 



At 16, Jean Hoeter Toal '65, 
daughter of a politically 
active South Carolina family, 
sat on the platform with John F. 
Kennedy as he gave a campaign 
address on the Colimihia State 
House grounds. When his opponent, 
Richard M. Nixon, came to town 
shortly thereafter, the young Jean 
again had a hird's-eye view — this 
time from the limbs of a nearby tree. 
That Jean Hoefer Toal was inter- 
ested in politics from tree-climbing 
age should come as no surprise. At 
42, she is a well-established Colum- 
bia lawyer and unquestionably one ot 
the most influential state representa- 
tives in the South Carolina General 
Assembly (D-Richland). And like 
many women ot her generation, a 
litany ot "firsts" seems to have accom- 
panied her every move: first woman 
in South Carolina history to chair a 
standing committee of the House 
(the House Rules Committee), first 
woman to serve on the House 
Judiciary Committee, first woman 
partner in her law firm. She is con- 
sidered a likely candidate to become 
the first woman judge on the South 
Carolina Supreme Court. In the next 
tew months, her successful career as 
a trial lawyer will reach a new mile- 
stone as she argues her first case 
before the U.S. Supreme Court. 
Yet Toal, a small, open-coun- 
tenanced woman who radiates self- 
confidence and energy, takes all the 
accolades in stride. Tilking earnestly 




in her law office on Columbia's Lady 
Street, only a short walk from the 
Capitol dome, she neither denies nor 
demurs when asked about her ac- 
complishments. Instead, she offers 
a straightforward assessment ot who 
she is and why she does what she 
does. 

"1 find that for a lot of women, the 
only real barriers to doing what I'm 
doing — or [to being] whatever it is 
they want to be — are their own atti- 
tudes about whether they can do it," 
she says, speaking in a husky, distinc- 
tively Southern accent. "There isn't 
any question that there are still 
barriers to the entry ot women in all 
professions, barriers that are not ot 
women's making. But there are equal 
barriers that are ot women's making, 
that have to do with their own levels 
of expectations about themselves." 

Ob\-iously, Toal's expectations ot 
herself are high indeed. At Agnes 
Scott, she majored in philosophy. 



honed her skills on the College 
debate team, and increasingly found 
herself drawn to the pressing issue of 
the day, racial integration. "This was 
a very political time tor young 
people, " she recalls. "There was the 
election, with Lyndon Johnson 
versus Barry Goldwater. And there 
was the beginning of exchange 
programs with Spelman [and other 
black colleges] through a U.S. Na- 
tional Students Association program 
called 'the Southern Project.'" Toal 
participated in this summer study 
group in 1964, with her parents' 
reluctant permission. Looking back, 
she characterizes her ci\il rights 
activism as "not nearly as dramatic 
as some students'. But tor a Southern 
child, it was a very heavy invoK'e- 
ment," she adds. "I was meeting with 
black people and gomg to interracial 
meetings, participating in voter 
registration, and atone time, picket- 
ing. It was pretty hold stuft tor a 
Southern person." 

Though T^al remains an active 
alumna and tirm supporter ot the 
College, she is quick to point out 
that in the mid '60s, expectations tor 
women students were much different 
from those tor men. Ambitious 
career guidance, tor example, was 
one shortcoming in an Agnes Scott

Social Circle), and is a 1*^73 graduate of 
Hollins College. Her full time is taken

writing career.

education. "When I graduated from 
Scott with a history ot interest in 
politics and involvement in it, there 
was no real guidance or direction at 
school about the law as a career," she 
says. While enrolled in Agnes Scott, 
she took a course in constitutional 
law at Emory; when she decided to 
take the LSAT (the law school 
admittance test), she obtained her 
information and enrollment forms 
from Emory because she couldn't 
locate the necessary materials at her 
own college. 

In law school at the University of 
South Carolina a year later, Toal 
found herself one of four women in 
a class of 130. When she began 
practicing law in 1968, there were 
only about 40 women attorneys in 
the state of South Carolina. "Of that 
number, 10 were no longer in active 
practice, and only two had ever tried 
a jury case," she says. 

Law school brought other rewards 
as well. Not only did Toal earn grades 
high enough to position her as an 
editor of the school's law review, but 
she also established a strong and 
enduring "support group" of law 
school friends — all men — that in- 
cluded her future husband, fellow 
student (and law review editor) 
William T. Toal. The couple married 
in 1967. After law school and two 
years of working in Greenville, 
S.C.,— Jean with a large law firm 
and Bill as a law clerk for a U.S. 
Court of Appeals judge — the Toals 
returned to their native Columbia. 
Within a few years, both Toals were 
partners in Columbia law firms: Bill 
with Johnson, Toal & Battiste, and 
Jean with Belser, Baker, Barwick, 
Ravenel, Toal & Bender. 

In 1974, Jean Tsal's strong pre- 
dilection toward politics took a 
concrete form: she decided to run on 
the Democratic ticket for state repre- 
sentative. Her opponent, the incum- 
bent Republican, was her old junior 
high school principal and civics 
teacher. Running — and winning — 
was an exhilarating, terrifying event. 



"For women in particular, and par- 
ticularly the first time you run, you're 
almost taking your heart in your 
hands," she says. "It's a real bold 
step. I don't care if you do have the 
kind of political support group 1 
had — that first decision to put 
yourself on the line, throw your name 
in the ring, is a mighty hard decision 
for most women to make." With a 
daughter, Jean, then 3, and a career 
as a trial lawyer, Tjal seemingly faced 
unusual hardship in making the 
commitment. 

From that first race onward, how- 
ever, Jean Toal's political savvy has 
become more and more apparent — 
and more formidable. Possessed of a 
sharp legal mind and a brash, tena- 
cious talent for negotiation — two 
characteristics recognized by her 
admirers and opponents alike — Toal 
has taken on such legislative tasks as 
pushing for a merit-based Public 
Service Commission and changing 
the parliamentary rules of the Gen- 
eral Assembly to restrict prolonged 
debate on the House and Senate 
floors. 

She has not, she points out, 
concentrated on or limited herself to 
what are usually perceived as 
women's issues, even though, as an 
Equal Rights Amendment supporter, 
she served as floor leader for the ERA 
when it was brought to the vote in 
South Carolina. (It was unsuccess- 
ful. ) And in what seems a contradic- 
tion to some South Carolina femi- 
nists, she has repeatedly introduced 
resolutions urging South Carolina to 
support a "human life" — anti- 
abortion — amendment to the U.S. 
Constitution. She is a devout 
Catholic. 

The daughter of an Irish Catholic 
mother and a German Catholic 
father, Toal clearly relishes the more 
expansive, ebullient side of the 
stereotypical Irish temperament. She 
can hold her own in the saltiest of 
conversations, hobnob convivially 
with her legislative cronies over 
drinks at a local bar, and generally 



make her wishes known in no uncer- 
tain terms. In the political sphere, 
these attributes, though occasionally 
aggravating to those who disagree 
with her, have earned her a stature 
few women ever attain. In a world 
peopled with "good ol' boys," she is 
not only respected; she is obviously 
well-liked. 

These days, T:)al has her mind on 
more than legislative issues. The 
legislature, in session from early 
January to mid-June, is over for this 
year, and more imminent problems 
loom. The U.S. Supreme Court, for 
example. As counsel for the Catawba 
Indian tribe of South Carolina, Toal 
argued successfully before the U.S. 
Court of Appeals that the Indians 
have a valid claim to some 144,000 
acres of land in and around Rock 
Hill, S.C. The state, not surpris- 
ingly, appealed so vast and far- 
reaching a claim. "We're talking 
about probably two billion dollars' 
worth of property!" says Toal. The 
third-largest Eastern Indian claim in 
the nation, the case should go before 
the Supreme Court in late 1985 or 
early 1986. 

For Toal, displaying her litigator's 
skills before the highest court in the 
land is merely one more notch in an 
already distinguished career. Now 
the mother of two — Lilla, 4, was a 
"joyful surprise" in her mother's 37th 
year — Tbal recognizes that she is one 
of the lucky few who may well "have 
it all." Characteristically, she is frank 
about pulling it off. She has a full- 
time housekeeper; her older daugh- 
ter, Jean, is 13 now and more inde- 
pendent. But, she adds, in the end, 
"Sometimes I manage it well, and 
sometimes I don't. No one always 
manages everything just as she wants 
to. But anybody who does a lot of 
things, male or female, would say 
what I say: You have to have a very, 
very supportive family and a suppor- 
tive group of friends. " Fortunately for 
Toal and the South Carolina voters 
who re-elect her term after term, she 
has both. D

NMAN HALL 



Jennie D. Inman Hall once more welcomes students withi 

Victorian elegance and charm. Decorators inventoried 

\he entire campus, attics and basements, to gather these 

treasures for Inman's renovation. 

by Lee Ann Harrison 



AGNES scon ALUMNAE MAGAZINE 171 



Traditional elegance and modern, 
practical innovation. The un- 
likely pair has come together 
brilliantly on the Agnes Scott cam- 
pus with the renovation of Jennie D. 
Inman Hall. Formally unveiled to 
the College community and Alum- 
nae Leadership Conference m a 
Sept. 20 open house, Inman Hall 
was completed Sept. 6 and is home 
to 89 students this year. 
And a grand home it is. 
Working from the outside-in, 
architects and interior design special- 
ists have maintained Inman's turn- 
of-the-centur>' grace and beauty, 
while bringing the building com- 
pletely in line with the most modern 
of standards. 




Built in 1910 at a cost of $50,000 
and dedicated in 1911, Jennie D. 
Inman Hall was considered a gitt to 
the College from Samuel Martin 
Inman, chairman of the Board of 
Trustees from 1903-1914, and was 
named in memory of his first wife. 

Natural wood wainscoting, com- 
plemented by wallcoverings in muted 
shades of rose, mauve, terra-cotta 
and green add interest to the 19-foot- 
high walls in the main lobby. 
Wallcoverings on each floor have 
different patterns — variations on 
the same classic color schemes. 
Period furniture has been refur- 
bished, artwork has been reframed 
and "new" period furnishings, light 




fixtures and other accents have been 
purchased or acquired through dona- 
tions to complete the overall effect. 
Custom-designed area rugs on the 
hardwood floors pull the look 
together. 

Henry Jova, founding partner of 
Jova/Daniels/Busby Architects, 
which handled the interior aspects 
of the restoration project, notes that 




the end result is elegant and formal, 
yet colorful, cheerful and comfort- 
able. "Walking into the lobby," Jova 
says, "you get the feeling that you 
might be walking into the living 
room of someone's aunt." 

Built-in lofts in the first-floor 
rooms allow residents to separate 
living space from sleeping space, 
creating a more home-like atmos- 
phere. Windows are fitted with 
Levolor blinds. Kitchens on each 
floor have been renovated as well, 
and feature modern appliances and 
fixtures. 

The attic atop the three-story 
building, formerly used for storage, 
has been converted to a study area 
for residents, with 34 individual 
carrels. 

The $1.6 million project, begun 
in fall 1984, was the first part of an 
$18.75-million master renovation 
plan for the College, scheduled to be 
completed by fall 1989, the College's 
centennial year. Other projects 
already completed include the crea- 
tion of a terrace dining facility on 



■ 18 FALL 1985 



the lower level of the dining hall, 
and the relocation ot the campus 
store and post office facility, with a 
newly built sunken plaza pedestrian 
entranceway and an elevator and 
underground tunnel service en- 
tranceway. The master plan calls for 
the renovation of Agnes Scott 
(Main) Hall and Rehekah Hall, the 
addition of an athletic track and field 
and construction of a new student 
activity center, which will be the 
largest building on campus. A new 
energy management system will 
provide state-of-the-art energy effi- 
ciency, and substantial site work and 
landscaping will provide the finish- 
ing touches. Several of these projects 
are already in progress. The renova- 
tions are being funded by bonds 
issued last January. 

Notes Vice President of Business 
Affairs Gerald O. Whittington, "We 
were trying to preserve Inman's 
Victorian elegance while making the 
building as inhabitable and as safe as 
modern standards could allow." The 
project was unquestionably success- 
ful. "There is no residence hall in 
the country like it," concludes 
Whittington. "We're very proud 
of Inman."

cation ceremony for Jennie D. Inman

give her and her comrades against 
arms the time of day. She carried 
charts and films with her, and, as 
audio-visual aids, a metal bucket and 
6,000 BB's; she would hold the 
bucket up to the microphone and 
drop the BB's into it, one by one, 
making her point about the destruc- 
tive force of the world's nuclear 
arsenal adding up to 6,000 World 
War lis. The U'chunk-k' chunk, greatly 
amplified, was maddening and was 
meant to be. "Stop it, that's enough!" 
a women cried at one performance. 
That was precisely Dorothy's 
message. 

She sustained herself with the 
feeling, or the wish, that the move- 
ment was growing — that it would 
number in the millions some not too 
distant day, enough to move moun- 
tains or even governments. But her 
own daddy remained beyond the 
reach of her persuasive powers. She 
brought a second packet of papers to 
their luncheon at his club, hoping 
he would read them and unsurprised 
to hear afterward that he had not; 
he confessed the next time they met 
that he had been playing golf instead. 
She didn't have the heart to push 
him. He was a compassionate man, 
she knew that; he had even quit 
fishing because he couldn't stand 
killing fish. But she suspected that 
it was painful for him to look too 
hard at the subject of the bomb, and 
something protective in her held her 
back; she could not bear to cause her 
daddy pain. 



"Du you really think we can win if 



re s a niic 



lear 



war 



?" 



"If you want to play the game, " Billy 
was saying, "you've got to have the 
marbles. If you don t have the marbles, 
you can't play. They've got marbles and 
we've got marbles. No one knoivs who's 
got the most marbles. " 

"Say we're about eqiuil, " Dorothy 
said, trying again. 

"Let me say this, " Billy said, glancing 
at his watch again. "When the stakes 
are so high, you don't guess, because 
the risk is too high. " 



"No, 1 don't believe anybody can 
win, Dottie, honey, but there are people 
in the Pentagon working to prevent that 
from happening. I just don't think you 
can take the risk of believing that we 
are too strong. " 

"But you can take the risk of nuclear 
war?" Dorothy said. 

They were getting nowhere, two 
people armored in certainty and 
restrained by love. Billy Burns was 
Dorothy's Rosetta stone, his resis- 
tance a code to be cracked; if she 
could reach him, she would have 
mastered the language of a genera- 
tion—the generation that had 
brought the bomb into the world 40 
years ago. But she could not bring 
herself to press too hard, and he 
could not be moved. He liked her 
fighting spirit, the kind of attitude, 
he thought, that makes millionaires; 
he wished in hindsight that she had 
come into the family business. Dottie 
was an idealist, he thought, and he 
was a realist; she saw the bomb as 
destructive of life, where he saw it as 
saving lives. 

Their conversation was moving in 
circles when they finally suspended 
it. Dorothy forced her papers on 
Billy; he dutifully carried them out 
to his Eldorado and waved goodbye. 
"Dottie, 1 don't want you to change 
my mind," he told her. His case for 
the defense rested on the historic fact 
that the planet had survived the first 
40 years of the atomic age. But 
certainty had died as a condition of 
existence at Hiroshima at 8:15 on 
the morning of Aug. 6, 1945, a 
casualty of the first nuclear weapon; 
it became the lot of humankind to 
live, permanently and dangerously, 
with the bomb. D

presented 1,000 workshops at the 
University ot Nairobi, covering

everything from peace and education 
to "What if Women Ruled the 
World.'" 

At the torum, Agnes Scott assis- 
tant professor of Bible and religion 
Deirdre Good, represented the 
Southeast Region of the Episcopal 
Church, and at the UN Conference, 
Agnes Scott RTC student Patty 
Clarke represented l.A.R.F. , the 
only interfaith organization to hold 
consultative status in the U.N. For 
Good, the trip was a return to the 
country of her birth and childhood. 
Her parents served as missionaries in 
Kenya. 

At the UN Conference, Good and 



Clarke caucused government dele- 
gates concerning the forward-looking 
strategies, the primary document of 
the conference. The strategies recom- 
mend indix'idual and government 
action through the year 2000 to 
improve the lives of women 
worldwide. 

By adopting the document, the 
delegates of 157 governments called 
for 

n affirmative action to include 
women in policy and decision 
making; 

n women to have access to com- 
munications media and to new 
technologies; 

D research to take into account the 
status of wcimen; 
CH women's unpaid work to be in- 



eluded in their nation's economic 

statistics; 

n households headed by single 

women to he recognized and aided; 

D violence against women to be 

named and curbed; 

D family planning information to he 

made available to all women. 

Stalled by tedious speeches and 
political debate over naming Zionism 
and apartheid as obstacles to women's 
progress, the document seemed 
doomed to the fate of similar failed 
efforts at UN conferences on women's 
issues in Mexico City in 1975 and 
Copenhagen in 1980. However, 
while media covered the debate, the 
women of Kenya were talking with 
representatives of dissenting nations 
quietly, persistently, graciously — and 
effectively. References to Zionism 
were dropped, and the conference 
adopted the document by consensus 
at 4:40 a.m. on the final day. 

Time and printing problems forced 
the resolutions to go to the UN 
General Assembly, which discussed 
and ratified them along with the 
strategies document at its regular 
meeting in September. 

The diplomatic success demon- 
strates women's negotiating powers 
and their willingness to work to- 
gether to achieve the decade's goals, 
Clarke explains. The strategies 
themselves are important for recog- 
nizing the progress of women over the 
decade, naming remaining obstacles 
and prescribing solutions. 

The strategies are also a key "bar- 
gaining chip" for the United Nations 
with its member nations, Clarke 
says. Although developed countries 
may ignore the demands of the 
nations represented at the confer- 
ence, "developing countries are often 
more apt to want to be aligned with 
the U. N . , " Clarke explains. The UN 
Commission on the Status of Women 
will monitor adherence to the 
recommendations . 

"But I wouldn't wait around for the 
U.N. to enforce itself," says Good.

"That would be totally frustrating." 
For women of the United States, she 
says, the document is a guide to local 
action as well. 

"One should use it to pressure 
local governments for representation 
of women," Good begins. "Also, 
what are we doing to educate chil- 
dren about some of the issues ad- 
dressed there? 

"Or literacy projects," she adds. 
"You don't have to go to my church 
in south Decatur to see the need for 
literacy projects. That is exactly 
what the educational parts of the 
forward-looking strategies suggest." 

Good also recommends that cur- 
ricula for the elementary through 
college ages be "revamped to include 
the realities of all women." 

Clarke suggests taking seriously 
the resources Atlanta has in women 
from other countries who are study- 
ing here. By spending time with such 
women and asking for their input, 
local women could "nurture the 
diversity of our city" and absorb an 
international viewpoint without 
leaving home. 

"We must encourage international 
experiences so we can get over our 
need tor the security of our own ideas 
and ways of life." Such an interna- 
tional perspective is necessary for 
handling the world's problems, she 
says. 

For her part. Good helps plan the 
Global Studies Program at Agnes 
Scott, designed to offer each student 
an experience beyond her own cul- 
ture during her college career. 

The church needs a similar toler- 
ance for diversity. Good continues. 
"The time has gone when we could 
say, 'It's important to me that you're 
a Southern Baptist and I'm an Epis- 
copalian. That separates us. ' Now is 
the time to say, 'There are some 
priorities that necessitate not em- 
phasizing our differences: human

dignity, human worth, social justice, 
equality, preservation of human 
rights, peace.' Those are far more 
important than what happens to 
bread at communion." 

They both recalled the atmosphere 
at the forum was very, very high 
energy. "Incredible energy," Good 
says. "Very exciting, very dynamic. 
Totally exhausting, but very 
invigorating. 

"One would be walking down the 
street with all these internationally 
famous people, and then one would 
see a group of Nairobi male students 
who had come just to see what these 
women were doing," she laughs. 
"And then one would see tribes- 
women in their traditional costumes, 
bringing their kids along, selling 
some of the stuff they make in their 
villages. It was incredible diversity." 

"Overall, it didn't matter who one 
was, what one was, where one came 
from," Clarke interjects. "She was of 
interest. She was welcome." 

During the last decade 
women's life expectancy, 

education and literacy 
have increased worldwide. 

At the torum, Clarke convened a 
panel of health care officials from 
several nations. In the informal 
discussion afterward, several Kenyans 
shared their triumphs in health care 
in recent years. "One South African 
woman said, 'I am excited to hear 
about what you Kenyans are doing in 
health care, but I want you to know 
that it makes me sad that my sisters 
are being sterilized against their 
will.' And she began to name the 
atrocities." 

Clarke says, "I could teel with this 
South African woman — articulate, 
bright, compassionate. How she 
even got in (to Kenya) I don't know, 
because she wouldn't have been 
allowed a passport. She was probably 
smuggled in." 

A woman pediatrician told Clarke 



Just what we don't need: 
A Women's Auxiliary to the U.N. 



Would you ever, in your wildest fan- 
tasies, expect to hear about a World 
Conference for Men, or a United 
Nations' Decade for Men? 

Of course not. That would he 
absurd. There are more than 2 billion 
male people in the world. They live all 
over the globe, in every imaginable 
economic, social and political situa- 
tion, varying not only from country to 
country but within each country. 

A World Conference for Women and 
a U.N. Decade tor Women are equally 
absurd. There are more than 2 billion 
female people in the world. We too live 
all over the globe, in every imaginable 
economic, social and political situa- 
tion, varying not only from country to 
country but within each country. 

We are no more like each other than 
men are like each other. That is what 
the w'omen's movement has been all 
about, that women he recognized and 
treated as individual persons, not 
lumped together in any phony network 
of sisterhood that is supposed to some- 
how transcend national boundaries, 
economic classes and cultural 
differences. 

Even within a nation, we are not the 
same. In our nation, for example, we 
speak of "the women's vote," and yet 
our last national election proved that 
women are not a monolithic group, 
with special problems of no concern to 
men, to be dealt with in any one 
gathering claiming to represent 
women. 

When men gather for international 
conferences, they identify substanti\'e 
issues for consideration. Each repre- 
sents the national interests of his own 
country, including the women of that 
country. The men are not expected to 
subordinate national interests and 
responsibilities to personal concerns. 
As delegates of their nations, they are 
expected to operate within the context 
of national sovereignty and national 
policies. 



The U. N . Women's Conference j ust 
held in Naitobi was, in fact, a confer- 
ence not of women but of governments. 
The women and one man who rep- 
resented the United States, like other 
national delegates, operated within the 
domestic and foreign policies of this 
nation. Why should we be surprised 
that the same differences that routinely 
surface at other international gather- 
ings surfaced there? 

There are no "women's issues" that 
are not also "men's issues" and vice 
versa. Peace, pure drinking water, 
health, economic development — 
where could you possibly draw the line 
between what concetns women and 
what concerns men? 

Furthermore, it doesn't make sense 
for women who claim to be powerless 
to attempt to deal with world problems 
for which there are already specialized 
U.N. and other international agencies. 
If the 15,000 to 1Q,QQ0 women who 
traveled to Kenya to attend the official 
conference or the unofficial meeting 
were to divide up themselves and their 
money on monitoring the specialized 
agencies, they might develop some 
power. 

We must recognize that we cannot 
eliminate sexism by institutionalizing 
it. And we cannot bring peace and 
prosperity to women w-ithout bringing 
peace and prosperity to men. 

Please — no more Women's Confer- 
ences. We do not need a Women's 
Auxiliary to the United Nations. —

later that throughout her schooling 
and career, "she was too afraid to 
even speak on behalf of her patients 
if a senior colleague was misdiagnos- 
ing or treating that person poorly. 
Here she sees women who live in a 
martial state decide they are going 
to do something, even if it means 
their death. And they're doing it. 
They even came to Kenya to tell 
people what they're doing. 

"She was so impressed hy the 
courage of these feisty, brilliant, 
everyday women that she decided it 
was time to be one of them. " Clarke 
concurs for herself: "It's time to be 
outrageous. 

"The pictures in my mind are of 
women in a variety of native dress 
just being themselves — as different 
as those selves are. Stating first-hand 
their experience. No expectations 
that I could fix it. No fury at me as 
though 1 caused it. Just 'this is what's 
happened to me.'

educational tools that were wholis- 
tic," Clarke says, her pleasure and 
emotion evident. "In health care 
women have learned how to heal 
without sophisticated, miraculous 
tools. Out of a mud dump a woman 
would emerge every day looking very 
attractive, being very loving, quite 
at peace, ready to give to a lot of 
new people, and then to go back to 
her village. 

"I also saw women from developed 
nations using their power and priv- 
ilege in moving ways to struggle with 
their humanity and the humanity of 
their sisters." 

But not every experience was as 
empowering. The day they arrived 
Good and Clarke were asked to leave 
a meeting organized by Atlanta 
women and Washington, D.C. for 
black women only. Clarke says, "It 
was painful to have women of my 
own region acting racist against me, 
but the maturity of the African black 
women, who were so apologetic and 



so shocked by this kind of racism, 
was healing." 

"Last year I wouldn't have told you 
that I was hurt by some things at the 
conference," Good says. "I'm very 
English, and English people are sort 
of polite and take care of other 
people's feelings. I would have con- 
sidered it my personal, private grief. 

'The future gets done 

by individual people 

committing their 

professional and personal 

lives to the work.' 

"But now I think it's important to 
say that I will not tolerate that 
behavior. If people want to be racist, 
then maybe we can't work together. 
There's a lot of pain, but I'm not 
afraid to say that anymore." 

Women all over the world are 
asserting themselves in new ways, 
speaking in their own behalf, Good 
and Clarke emphasize. Women in 
less developed countries are going 
beyond an intellectual, theoretical 
feminism for something much more 
practical: survival. 

"These women are saying, 'The 
world of madness, which has been 
run by men, for men, about men, has 
touched the very essence of our 
survival,'" Clarke says, "and survival 
has always been under women's 
domain. They are standing up to say, 
'You can't do it without a fight. We're 
going to get our water. We're going 
to grow our fruit and raise our chil- 
dren with our husbands. We're going 
to be recognized in the political 
forces of our tribe or our country. We 
will stand together.' Congress can't 
stop it. Lack of funds can't stop it." 

Some have called it an interna- 
tional women's movement. Others 
call it meaningless rhetoric. But 
Good and Clarke doubt that it is 
coincidence that women's lives have 
improved during the UN Decade for 
Women. 

Life expectancy, education and 



literacy have increased worldwide. 
Women in most countries — except 
the United States and most Muslim 
nations — are achieving more equal- 
ity with men, legally and constitu- 
tionally, they point out. 

Eighty nations have ratified the 
UN Convention on the Elimination 
of All Forms of Discrimination 
Against Women, a document that 
urges countries to implement equal 
political, social and economic rights 
for women. Ninety countries now 
have equal-pay laws, up from 28 
since 1978. Research on women has 
burgeoned. 

If progress continues, Clarke 
believes, Roman Catholic sisters and 
women of developing nations will 
lead it. 

"There is an impetus tor healthy 
change because of the support system 
of the church," Clarke says. "Now 
it's the church's responsibility to 
apply the fundamental principles of 
equality, development and peace in 
the local church areas. You can't 
worry about South African women if 
you live in Atlanta and don't worry 
about the poor black woman across 
the street." 

Good says religion was pervasive 
at the forum. 

The All African Conference of 
Churches, an interdenominational 
Christian group, started Karibu, a 
place set aside at a local church for 
women of various religious traditions 
to gather and share. Karibu means 
welcome in Swahili, Kenya's 
language. 

Also, the Anglican Church spon- 
sored an African night, serving 
dinners of meat and fruit to several 
thousand people in the cathedral 
while choirs from all over Africa 
performed. 

Now the task is to make it happen, 
both women point out. "I want also 
to be involved in strategizing with 
Atlanta women who have been to 
the conference and with other 
women leaders in the church commu-

The Celestial 
Streaker 



Comets may give us clues to the beginnings 
of the solor system some 4.5 billion yeors ago, 




124 FALL 1985 



Comets — those mysterious 
white streaks of spectacle — 
have long been credited 
with influencing fates, fortunes, and 
famines. But not until the late 17th 
century, however, when a British 
astronomer and mathematician 
studied reported comet sightings 
from 1531, 1607, and 1682, were 
connections between them scientifi- 
cally considered. Based on his work, 
the astronomer predicted the year 
and the course of one comet's re- 
turn—but he died too soon to see 
his theory proven correct near Christ- 
mas 1758.** 

The astronomer was Edmund 
Halley, and Halley's comet — the 
first comet whose return was accu- 
rately predicted — has become 
perhaps the world's most observed, 
examined, photographed, plotted, 
and scrutinized astronomical event. 
When Halley's makes its 30th re- 
corded pass around the sun this 
winter, says Dr. Malcolm B. Niedner, 
an astrophysicist at NASA's Goddard 
Space Flight Center, "We will see 
the most intensive assault on a comet 
in history." 

Niedner, married to Dianne Gers- 
tle Niedner '72, is intensely involved 
in all three of NASA's comet-study 
projects over the next year. Besides 
his professional interest, he has a 
personal stake as well: his doctoral 
thesis, on why comets grow and drop 
several plasma tails within each 
orbit, will be tested as part of the 
NASA observations. 

What is this celestial enigma, 
arousing such worldwide fascination? 
Actually, relatively little is known 
about what comets are or where they 
come from. The vaporization part of 
a comet's orbit, when it is nearest to 
the sun and easiest to observe, lasts 
only a few months, leaving little time 
for extensive study. Also, many 
comets are small and can be seen 
only with a telescope, and most have 
such large orbital cycles that their 
appearances cannot be anticipated. 
To date there are about 650 comets 
scientifically recorded, many with 




only one verified sighting.* 

Niedner describes a comet's core 
as a "dirty iceball"; it is thought to 
be composed mainly of water plus 
carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, 
ammonia, methane, and perhaps 
other trace species. Dust grains and 
rocky material may make up between 
one-quarter and one-half of its 
mass. * The largest comet on record 
had a nucleus 70 kilometers (42 
miles) in diameter; the smallest so 
far detected is one-half kilometer 
(one-third mile) wide.* 

One predominant theory says 
leftovers from the cloud of dust, gases 
and other material which first formed 
our solar system eventually drifted 
into orbit, mostly as the Oort cloud 
at the edge of the solar system, 
containing hundreds of millions of 
comet nuclei.* These nuclei get 
kicked into eliptical orbits when a 
passing star gives them a whopping 
gravitational tug. 

When an orbiting comet nucleus 
comes within three to five astronom- 
ical units ot the sun (one a. u. is the 
distance from the earth to the sun; 
three a.u.'s would put it between 
Mars and Jupiter), sunlight "cooks" 
it. The ice becomes vapor, and both 
gas and dust particles are released to 
form the coma, which emits the tails. 
The dust tail grows as the nucleus 
approaches the sun, fanning away 



from sunlight in a broad yellow haze. 

At the same time, sunlight ionizes 
gases and the free ions also trail the 
comet. This second tail looks narrow, 
straight, and blue from light given 
off by the positively charged ions. 
When the comet meets the solar 
wind —gusts of protons and electrons 
just beyond the sun's surface, which 
may be 1 to 2 million degrees Fahren- 
heit—a comet loses and regains its 
tail every week or two as the nucleus 
moves through magnetic fields of 
alternating polarity, according to 
Niedner. 

Exploring the details of this proc- 
ess is one of NASA's priorities in this 
comet-watching season. And there 
is ample opportunity. Besides 
Halley's long-anticipated return, 
another comet, named Giacobini- 
Zinner, is on hand — and NASA is 
focusing considerable attention on 
it. When the International Cometar^' 
Explorer spacecraft crossed Giaco- 
bini-Zinner's path on Sept. 11, the 
United States became the first nation 
to send a mission to any comet. 

Besides collecting data on the 
comet's composition, the mission has 
added to astronomical knowledge in 
two other ways. After its 1978 launch- 
ing as International Sun-Earth 

On Halley's pass this year 

we'll see the most 

intensive assault on 

a comet in history. 

Explorer 3, it first monitored the 
solar wind, then was adapted to 
study the earth's own magnetic tail. 
The three-in-one mission produced 
"a lot of bang for the dollar," Niedner 
says, and was "a ver\' effective use of 
funds." 

It was funding that kept the 
United States from joining Japanese, 
Soviet and European scientists to 
send a spacecraft to meet Halley's as 
well. The flinding crisis of the late 
1970s led to calls for restraint in 
government spending, and a pro- 
posed Halley's mission was grounded.

fe 




Atlanta-area folks who aren't 
planning an ocean cruise in the 
southern hemisphere during the 
peak viewing days ot Halley's 
comet: don't despair. A short car 
ride to the country — anywhere 
away from city lights — will give you 
a look at the once-in-a-lifetime-for- 
most-of'us event. But he prepared 
to wake up early or to turn in very 
late, because at the comet's peak 
this spring the best viewing will be 
at about 5 a.m. 

According to Agnes Scott's 
Alberto Sadun, assistant professor 
of astronomy and director of the 
Bradley Observatory, Halley's 
comet will become barely visible to 
the naked eye in ideal (very dark) 
conditions in December. The view- 
will be best around midnight. As 
the comet moves toward its late 
March, early April peak, it ap- 
proaches the sun, and the best 
\'iewing times will get later. 

At its peak, how large will the 
comet seem from earth? Well, hold 
your hand at arm's length in front 
of you, with fingers and thumb 
side-by-side. The comet and its tail 
will appear to be about the width 
of your hand from thumb to 
"pinky." Binoculars will not be 
necessary to see the silver-white 
ball with a fuzzy tail that will be 
Halley's comet, but they will much 
improve the view, Sadun says. 

"Comets are a lot like hurricanes 
in terms of predictability," Sadun 
explains. "We have to rely on some 
very crude predictions about the 
comet in terms of its brightness. 
Unfortunately," he adds, "there 
will be a full moon when Halley's 
comet is at its best; that will affect 






the view to a great extent." 

An open house for the public and 
College community is held at the 
Bradley Observatory' the first Friday 
of each month at 8 p.m., with 
lectures, planetarium shows and, 
on clear nights, telescope viewings. 
This year the observatory programs 
will em.phasize Halley's comet and 
feature a "comet update" each 
month. Public viewings are tenta- 
tively scheduled after the plan- 
etarium shows, but depend on 
weather conditions. 

Julius Staal, director of the 
College planetarium, recommends 
the booklet, Mr. Halley's Comet: 
Everyone's Complete Guide To Seeing 
the Celestial Event, for people who 
would like more information — in 
lay terms. Published by Sky and 
Telescope magazine, the booklet 
offers guidance in locating, viewing 
and even photographing Halley's 
comet. For a copy, send a check for 
$2.50 toJ.D.W. Staal, Bradley 
Observatory, Agnes Scott College, 
Decatur, GA 30030. 

Anita Kern '74, astronomer and 
physicist with DeKalb County's 
Fernbank Science Center, notes 
that the Fernbank observatory- 
hours will be extended this year to 
allow the community to see the 
comet by telescope. Fernbank's 
telescope is the largest in the 
United States that is open to the 
public on a weekly basis. 

A planetarium show "The Return 
of Halley's Comet" w-ill run through 
Nov. 27 and again from Jan. 7, 
1986, through April 20, 1986. 
Special lectures will address such 
topics as locating Halley's comet, 
and "Was Halley's comet the Star 




mt 



of Bethlehem?" Bradley Observa- 
tory, at Agnes Scott, will also 
sponsor a December open house 
with a "Christmas Show" among 
others. 

An exhibit of works by Jerr\- 
Armstrong, local artist and amateur 
astronomer, will be featured at 
Fernbank through December. An 
informative — and fun — hands-on 
computer exhibit will answer ques- 
tions about the comet and other 
celestial subjects. 

Ms. Kern, who teaches advanced 
instructional courses and is a direc- 
tor of a research project seminar for 
high school students, says she's 
excited about the return of Halley's 
comet, and she's likely to spend a 
lot of early-morning hours at the 
observatory. "Fernbank is trying to 
provide ample opportunities for the 
public to learn about and appreciate 
Halley's comet," she said. 'After 
all, it only comes around every 76 
years — not many people get a 
chance to see it twice." 

But Agnes Scott has at least one 
youngster who saw Halley's last 
orbital cycle in May 1910. Caroline 
"Callie" McKinney Clarke '27 
recalls at 5 years old, "My father 
taking me up out of the bed and 
going deep into the hack yard to 
see the comet. Oh, it was exciting, 
though I believe 1 was more excited 
about being out so late than about 
seeing Halley."

126 FALL 1985 



But Niedner, a consultant to the 
project, is pleased now that the 
Giacohini'Zinner study will provide 
a useful comparison with findings by 
other missions to Halley's in March. 
"Isn't that better than sending all 
that spacecraft to one comet?" 

Despite its absence from the 
expedition to Halley's, NASA is 
strongly involved in studying the 
comet in other ways. For one week 
in March, as the orbit is intercepted 
by the international teams, a space 
shuttle project named Astro- 1 will 
observe from afar. This separate 
mission complements ground-based 
study, says Niedner, since Astro- I's 
three telescopes operate in the 
ultraviolet portion of the light spec- 
trum, and on Earth ultraviolet waves 
are absorbed by the atmosphere. 

Niedner sees this project as 
another example of efficient use of 
government-funded equipment. As 
chair of the Astro Halley Science 
Team, he and 10 other cometary 
scientists determined how best to 
employ the three telescopes, which 
were designed for other uses than 
comet-watching. Astro- 1 will orbit 
the earth every 90 minutes, and on 
at least every fourth orbit will observe 
and photograph the comet. The 
team is advising the project and will 
help analyze and publish its results. 

Scientists believe all the attention 
paid to comets will provide clues to 
the beginnings of the solar system 
about 4-5 billion years ago. "The 
nucleus probably contains very primi- 
tive material, "Niedner explains. "If 
that material is far from the sun, it 
stays cold and unprocessed — pre- 
served by a deep freeze." 

Even when the nucleus encounters 
sunlight and the solar wind, not 
enough melting occurs to destroy it: 
the active period within about three 
astronomical units of the sun is a 
small portion of even Halley's orbit, 
35 a.u. at its farthest point. Halley's, 
which Niedner estimates is slightly 



smaller than Washington, D.C., 
loses only about a meter of material 
in every swing past the sun. Its 
appearances have been cited back to 
240 B.C.;* though no one knows 
how long the 76-year orbit has 
existed, Niedner believes it's been 
going for thousands of years "and 
probably has thousands more to go. " 

On average, five new comets are 
discovered each year.* Few are as 
long or as bright as Halley's, and 
most orbits are so elongated that 
scientists have only one shot to 
observe them. Comet West, for 
example, appeared in 1976 and was 
"one of the brightest in the last 
century," according to Niedner; but 
its orbit takes 500,000 years.* The 
much-touted Kohoutek of 1973 is 
expected again in about 75,000 
years. So Halley's, which for most of 
us is a once-in-a-lifetime event, is a 
reliable and accessible resource for 
building our knowledge of comets. 

The best sightings from earth will 
be in the spring of 1986, Niedner 
advises, and "if you have the time 
and the money, go to the Southern 
Hemisphere" to see it. Many ocean 
lines will be sponsoring Halley's 
comet cruises in the spring for serious 
pleasure watchers. In late November, 
all of December, and the first seven 
to ten days of January, the comet will 
be well-placed for viewing in the 
Northern Hemisphere, though it will 
not be as bright and binoculars may 
be needed in some areas. 

"It's a sight well worth seeing," 
says Niedner — and since Halley's 
comet won't be back until 2061, now 
is our best opportunity. Happy view- 
ing.

nity in Atlanta," Good explains. 

Good and Clarke met with a group 
of women before the UN conference 
to be able to better represent local 
concerns to the forum. They met 
again Sept. 28 to discuss new plans. 

Clarke says such meetings will 
help project the forward-looking 
stategies into the future. "The future 
is brought about by individual people 
committing their professional and 
personal lives to the work." 

The recognition that 

women's issues are for the 

good of the community 

has persuaded men 

to be concerned. 

"I want to find women who might 
he committed to local implemen- 
tation of things," Good says. "That 
will be more far-reaching than telling 
people about the conference." 

To illustrate the point, she told a 
story. For five years, Kenyan Minister 
for Culture and Social Services 
Kenneth S.N. Matiba had worked 
with committees and United Nations 
staff on the conference. As it opened, 
he welcomed the thousands of confer- 
ence participants by describing the 
strides "we women" have made in the 
decade. 

"Can you imagine?" an incredulous 
Deirdre Good asks. "We women. And 
he meant it! He's a 50- or 60-year-old 
Kenyan, an African who has lived 
through colonialism and every- 
thing." 

We women, he had said. "It's this 
recognition that women's issues are 
for the good of the whole community 
that has persuaded men to be con- 
cerned about them," Good con- 
tinues. "We will not get anywhere in 
this world if we don't work in partner- 
ship." Women and men together 
must implement the forward-looking 
strategies adopted in the conference's 
final hours. D

new Coke-old Coke dilemma: 
a can of each Coke mounted 
on a hard hat, with a straw 
hanging down to drink from 
either one. 

The joint gift from the host 
institutions was a Boehm 
porcelain presidential eagle 
signed by President Ronald 
Reagan and Vice President 
George Bush. 

Not content to enjoy the 
tribute alone, Mr. George 
called on other 90-year-olds 
in the audience to stand and 
be applauded, too.

Moving Moving Moving Moving 



Agnes Scott discovered this 
summer that lots of renovation 
inevitably means lots of 
moving. 

When Main Hal! closed in 
June, the administrative 
offices which were on the first 
floor took shelter in several 



new locations. The dean ot 
students office, financial aid, 
and career planning moved to 
the bottom floor of Winship 
Hall. The College switch- 
board and its electrical entour- 
age moved in with the public 



safety office in the wing of 
Rebekah near Buttrick Drive. 
The public relations office 
and its new director, Sandra 
Cluck, share quarters with 
the alumnae office in the 
Alumnae House, while the 



publications office migrated 
to the top floor of the 
gymnasium. 

Student organizations and 
student publications offices 
are using the top floor of the 
infirmary. 



ALUMNAE UPDATE 

An important message about your credentials file 



Dear Agnes Scott Alumna, 

In an effort to improve its 
services to you, the Career 
Planning and Placement 
Office is updating its creden- 
tials service, the system by 
which student and alumnae 
references are maintained and 
sent, by request, to schools 
and employing organizations. 
In going through our files, 
we have found that many of 
the references we are holding 
are obsolete — some dating as 
far back as the 1940s! Al- 
though these outdated refer- 
ences are of no value to 
employers, we don't want to 
destroy them without your 
permission. 

Please complete and sign 



the attached form and return 
it to us by Jan. 1, 1986. If we 
do not hear from you by that 
date, we will discontinue your 
file. 

Upon receipt of this form, 
we will automatically main- 
tain your credentials file for 
five years, until Dec. 31, 
1990, at which time you will 
again be responsible for 
updating it. If your file is 
outdated (from 3-5 years old) 
we will be pleased to send you 
the forms necessary to estab- 
lish a new one. References — a 
maximum of three — must be 
recorded on the forms supplied 
by our office. We feel this 
consistent approach helps to 
project an organized, profes- 



sional image to employing 
organizations. 

The 1974 Family Educa- 
tional Rights and Privacy Act 
gives students and alumnae 
open access to their tiles. 
Some employers, however, 
perceive closed files to be a 
more candid reflection of a 
person's strengths and abili- 
ties. If you wish to waive your 
right of access to your creden- 
tials file, please note on the 
attached form that you wish 
these files to remain closed. 

Finally, because the cost of 
this credentials service has 
increased over the years, we 
must begin charging a fee to 
mail your references to pro- 
spective schools and employ- 



ers. Beginning Jan. 1, 1986, 
the first set of credentials will 
be sent free of charge. Each 
subsequent mailing will cost 
you $1. 

We feel these changes will 
enhance the value ot the 
credentials service to both 
alumnae and employers. If 
you have any questions about 
these changes, or if you would 
like further information on 
our credentials service, please 
contact Dot Markert at (404) 
371 -6397. We look forward to 
hearing from you. 

Thank you.
