University of Virginia Dedicate the Battlefield to 



The Making of the Peace 

^Yor one white, singing hour of peace 
Count many a year of strife well lost" . . . 

— Sara Teasdale 



A new dawn of peace breaks upon the horizon . . . the long, bitter years of strife are 
ended . . . and before us stretches the formless future. A sigh of relief escapes our lips. Is 
it really true? The sad, lonely hours, days, months of watching and waiting are over. 
Truth and justice have triumphed, as we were certain they someday would. But we shall 
not forget the costly price of that victory, and our thoughts will ever turn toward those 
who did not live to see its fulfillment. 

Rest for a moment. Breathe in the fresh air of freedom once again. But do not pause 
too long ... it is time to put our shoulders to the wheel and strive with renewed vigor 
to rebuild our future world upon the ruins of the past. We have received the prize of 
peace ... it is our task to make it longlasting. To that task we humbly dedicate our- 
selves — to the making of the peace !

BROMPTON 



BROMPTON, suggestive of "Merrie Eng- 
' land" and "La Belle France," fair lands across 
the mighty Atlantic Ocean, which in the time of 
"Yester Years" gave of their Manhood and 
Womanhood, the brave, the hardy pioneers, who, 
weary of the gigantic conflicts of Europe sought 
a New Home in the New World where, undis- 
turbed by the upheavals of Europe, they could 
build for themselves and their posterity a new 
home in the New World beyond the Atlantic. 

The "First Colony" at Jamestown was in 1607 
and was succeeded by the exploration of the Rap- 
pahannock River by Capt. John Smith in 160S, 
in which year, so far as known, the eye of the 
"white man" first saw the tree-covered top of 
what is now known as Brampton, the ancient and 
historical estate, which has in 1945, been ac- 
quired for use as a portion of the grounds of the 



Mary Washington College for Women of the 
University of Virginia. 

This land is part of a "Crown Grant" of 2,000 
acres to John Buckner and Thomas Royston of 
May 2, 1671 for the transportation of 40 persons 
into the colony. This ancient "Crown Grant" is 
still extant and notably testifies to the courage, 
hardihood and bravery of the women of that early 
time, for among the "forty persons" transported 
into the colony, whose transportation was the 
consideration for the Grant, are listed Mary 
Parker, Dorcas Young, Elizabeth Sharps, Blanch 
Harding, Mary Thompson, Mary Greeford, Ara- 
bella Singleton, and Ann Townsend, and who can 
deny that brave women from thence till now have 
not mightily contributed to building that Free 
America in a New World of Lofty Ideals, Tolera- 
tion, and Christian Comprehension.

Ms" 




In February, 1727, the Town of Fredericksburg 
was formed by Act of the House of Burgesses of 
Virginia, taking the river front of the Patent, an 
area of 50 acres, and the remaining 1,950 acres 
by successive deeds were divided, the "up-river" 
or northwestern half to John Royston, and the 







"down-river" or southeastern half, including the 
Brompton land to Col. Henry Willis. 

Incidentally part of this lower half is now the 
beautiful National Cemetery, in which sleep 
15,296 Union Soldiers, interred there immediately 
after the Civil War, and known in National 
Annals as Willis Hill — a true hill-up the side, 
on, and over the top, and down on the other 
side. Not so with Brompton, however, for 
Brompton is on high land at the summit of the 
escarpment. 

The English, for thousands of years, have had 
the sea in their blood; their gaze has ever been 
seaward, not landward, and from their high 
ground, looking ever to the sea, they observed 
the land sloping from the convex escarpment 



down to the next level, then down again by suc- 
ceeding "downs," to the sea shore, with its little 
sandy ridges washed by the sea on the shore lines, 
and being little "downs" — the last to the water — 
they called them "dunes." 

The whole, however, were the English 
"Downs," along the heights of which for cen- 
turies from "London-town" had run, and now 
runs the "Brompton Road," on which is now 
situated one of the oldest and prettiest ceme- 
teries — "God's Acre" — in all England, where 
sleep awaiting the Resurrection Morn, many 
of the mighty dead of the English Kings 
and their Lords, some of whom opposed the 
Roman invasion quite two milleniums gone by, 
before Saxon, Dane, and Norman had become 
amalgamated into the present British Union. 

The Marye family were French Protestants- 
Huguenots, to whom, by the Edict of Nantes, 
signed by the French King, Henry IV on April 
15, 159S were granted full civil rights and liberty 
of conscience to worship God without molesta- 
tion from King or Subject, Bishop or Priest. The 
Revocation of the Edict by King Louis, on Oc- 
tober 18, 16S5 deprived the Protestants of France 
of all civil and religious liberty, thus giving a new 
incentive to the emigration, mostly to England, 
of the Huguenots among whom were the Maryes 
and many of whom, after years in England, emi- 
grated to Virginia, where they became outstand- 
ing citizens. 

In the peculiar richness of its rural scenery 
Brompton perhaps surpasses other portions of the 
Virginia Piedmont and Tidewater. It is at the 
"Foot of the Falls" and commands a view of 
both the eastern limit of the Piedmont and of the 
western limit of the Tidewater. 

At the foot of the "Downs" the non-tidal 



28 



water of the Piedmont, coming down from the 
eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountain, meets 
the tidal water sweeping up-river from the At- 
lantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay. At the Falls 
the river, in countless ages, has cut its way through 
the living granite, and the high lands on both 
sides of the river, looking eastward a distance of 
eight miles, describe great semi-circles each con- 
cave to the river, thus forming, as it were, a great 
"Punch Bowl," on the rim of which sits Bromp- 
ton and other beautiful and historic homes, each 
of commanding view. 

From the mouth of the Rappahannock River, 
upstream for miles, the country is flat, and farther 
up it is largely marshes, or steep precipitous cliffs, 
and what a lovely sight must it have been to the 
settlers in the Fredericksburg region when, after 
a voyage from England, and reaching the present 
Brompton area, they saw the counterpart of their 
lovely "Downs" of England, the land from the 
river bank rising to the present Caroline Street 
level, thence to the Princess Anne Street level, and 
along the plains to the escarpment rising the con- 
vex surface to the summit where Brompton now 
stands, the "Mansion House" of substantial brick 
to be begun by John Lawrence Marye, after his 
initial purchase of ten acres from William Gordon 
and William Allen, September 26, 1821, and as 
shown by increase assessments on the land assess- 
ment books, almost year by year of additions to 
the dwelling house. 

Unlike Willis "Hill," home of Colonel Willis, 
visited by William Byrd, progenitor of Senator 
Harry F. Byrd, in 1732, Brompton is not on a 
hill, but caps the escarpment, with level land back 
to the west until the western country reached into 
the "Wilderness" of the Civil War of 1860-1865. 
It was to rise this escarpment and capture Gen. 



Robert E. Lee's headquarters at Brompton that 
the Northern generals vainly sent their heroic 
troop in the tragic battle of Fredericksburg, and 
the Northern Army correspondents, not knowing 
the terrain, or nature of the country, to the im- 
mediate west of Brompton, and being "land- 




ward" in their outlook, not "seaward" as the 
British of the English "Downs," gave to the 
whole expanse of the battlefield the sobriquet of 
" Marye 's Heights," as it is known in the termi- 
nology of American Military History. 

To his original purchase of 10 acres, John 
Lawrence Marye added other purchases of con- 
tiguous land, increasing his holdings to several 
hundred acres, an addition being the Alum Spring 
Wood Tract to the west, a hundred and seventy- 
nine acres. 

On the Alum Spring Tract was a dam im- 
pounding the waters ol Hazel Run, affording 
waterpower to run a large grist mill of stone con- 



29 



struction, with stone miller's houses and stone 
granaries, serving this region before the American 
Revolution, and during the Revolution providing 
flour and meal for the Revolutionary Armies. 
This mill, with its accompanying buildings, be- 
came what would now be called a "Veteran's 




Hospital" for wounded and sick Revolutionary 
Soldiers and many from the battle of Yorktown 
were brought here for medical aid and surgical 
treatment. 

The Rev. James Marye, first of this prominent 
family to come to Virginia, was a native or 
Rouen, Normandy and from thence to London, 
from which ran the "Brompton Road" in Kent. 
He married Maria Ann Staige, daughter of the 
Anglican minister, and sailed from London in 
September 1729, arriving in Virginia, settled in 
Manajin-Town, in present Goochland County, 
and was soon called to Saint George Parish in 
Spotsylvania County where he continued until 
his death in 1767. 



His son, the second Rev. James Marye, who 
had studied at the College of William and Mary, 
succeeded his father in Saint George Parish, in 
which Parish is Brompton, and to the second Rev. 
James Marye and. his wife, nee Mildred Slaughter, 
was born John Lawrence Marye, builder and 
owner of Brompton. John Lawrence Marye was 
a member of the Virginia Legislature in 1S60-61, 
and consequently a member of that body when 
the Ordinance of Secession was adopted, and Vir- 
ginia became one of the Confederate States of 
America. 

Brompton passed into the ownership of the 
Lanes, thence to Capt. M. B. Rowe and thence to 
the Mary Washington College for Women of the 
University of Virginia. At the foot is the Sunken 
Road of Civil War fame; on its height were the 
headquarters of Gen. Robert E. Lee at the san- 
guinary Battle of Fredericksburg, December 1861, 
where the Northern Army crossed the Rappahan- 
nock River to undertake the impossible. 

The world has many battlefields, but around 
Brompton is the memoralization of the courage- 
ous devotion of men who carried on the traditions 
that Americans will die for their convictions, 
which is in accord with the educational philosophy 
of the age, which aims to give the learning 
process more vitality, to make truth more real. 

Viewed from its crest, one can see a mile away, 
the Northern Neck of Virginia, to which region 
James II on February 10, 16S7 granted the right 
of Religious Freedom to the settlers — "the free 
exercise of their Religion without being prose- 
cuted or molested upon any penall laws or other 
account for the same," and the Kings Highway is 
on the north side of the river, and the Tidewater 
Trail on the south side, along both of which 
streamed the settlers to penetrate the "gaps" of 



30 



the Blue Ridge Mountain, thence over the Valley 
of Virginia and the Alleghany Mountains, to the 
"Winning of the West." As surely as the ships of 
the world have navigated the English Channel in 
view of Brompton on the English Downs, so 
surely have peoples of the early American days, 
in almost endless streams, passed "Brompton 
Downs" in Spotsylvania County in their journey 
to the West. 

History, we dare hope, is repeating itself at and 
around Brompton and the lovely Mary Washing- 
ton College for Women in a more enduring way 
in these days of the twentieth century. The lovely 
student body, from many states of the Union and 
from foreign lands stands today upon the threshold 
of a new Era — at the beginning of a new ' 'New 
Learning" — more fraught with consequences to 
this life and the life to come than the "New 
Learning" of Europe, in the sixteenth century, 
held for the hardy, intrepid, faithful and courage- 
ous women who are named in the old Patent of 
1671, which embraced the Brompton yet to be. 

A singular and striking similarity exists be- 
tween the Brompton of the old world of centuries 
ago and this Brompton of the Mary Washington 
College for Women in Spotsylvania County, 
Virginia. 

In topographical aspect, here as there, on the 
summit of the "Downs," commanding views of 
the water; here as there, the proximity of a lovely 
cemetery, final resting place of heroic dead who 



gave their lives at the call of duty and in their 
country's welfare; here as there, formerly a part of 
Brompton, and in view close by, to the west, the 
site of the ancient "Veteran's Hospital"; here as 
there, each in Saint George's Parish, a great Insti- 
tution, whether called school, or college, or uni- 







versity, for the physical, mental, and moral edu- 
cation of young women. 

As the opportunities of these young women of 
the twentieth century, and of their successors in 
centuries yet to come, exceed the opportunities of 
their precursors of 1671, so much the more will 
their responsibilities be. It is an Iconoclast, indeed, 
who doubts that the young women of the Mary 
Washington College for Women will fail in any 
of these responsibilities.

Charles Henry Niehaus was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, January 24, 1S55. m early 
life he followed wood-carving, stone-cutting and marble-carving. He studied art at the 
McMicken School of Design, Cincinnati, and at the Royal Academy at Munich. He also 
studied in Athens and Greece. 

He was a member of the National Sculpture Society, National Institute of Arts and 
Letters, Academician of the National Academy of Design, Fellow of LAssociazione della 
Artistica Internationale di Roma. 



Mr. Niehaus died at Eagle Crest, Grantwood, New Jersey, June 19, 1935. 



Mary Washington College feels itself to be in high favor for the great 
privilege of having in its halls an elaborate exhibit of many of the works 
of this master artist, through the gracious generosity of his daughter, Marie 
Niehaus. The Battlefield feels itself peculiarly rich in the employment 
of pictorial pages of a Hanneman monument, an intrepid John Paul Jones, 
the grace of a Greek statue, a beloved Robert E. Lee, a noble Abraham 
Lincoln. The book comes into a lasting value through the pictured art 
that has entered into its content. 

The sculptured works of Charles Henry Niehaus are in themselves a 
monument to his genius but a yet greater monument, invisible, rises within 
the heart of Mary Washington College — that of a recognition of the wealth 
of culture which can become a part of ourselves through the law of associa- 
tion with the rare workmanship of a famous artist of wide renown. 
Through the mounting years, there will come a deeper appreciation, a 
sustained gratitude, and a better understanding of art and culture for the 
fact that Charles Henry Niehaus lived, and loved, and worked, and — gave.

We Build On The Past 



We have finished, yes — and yet it is we who are just beginning. Four years — long 
if measured in days, short if cherished in memory — are ours — ours on which to build a 
life — a life never to be free from the influence of those things here experienced. 

The beauty in life will be heightened when we remember such as a winding road, 
leading through an ever-changing forest; a silent white landscape, lying under shining 
stars, upon which each has made her secret wishes and placed her hopes; an unforgettably 
beautiful spring, rich in the color of newborn leaves and flowers, and full of strength for 
those who perhaps have been discouraged by winter's forbidding bleakness. 

The happiness in life will be enriched by the memories of living as one of a great family 
— all striving through collective talents and personalities to create an harmonious and 
pleasant atmosphere. Who among us shall fail to remember the anxiety of benefits, 
perfected by hours of grueling but satisfying work; the short-lived but perfect moments 
of ring dances; the pride and confidence felt in the first eventful donning of cap and gown? 
There has been sadness too, but what other standard have we by which to measure final 
happiness — for only out of failures can ultimate success grow and be realized; each is 
essential and interdependent. 

We have finished, yes — we began at the bottom of a long hill, and in climbing the hill 
have thus climbed to a new height. Now, we shall be regarded with a new respect and 
faced with a greater challenge. The respect we will merit, for we have proved ourselves 
worthy of our alma mater, who, herself, has moved to ever higher standing during our 
association with her. The challenge we must meet with boundless strength and courage, 
for it is with us that the peace and security of a postwar world are to be trusted. These 
fouryears, though infinitesimal in the span of time, have been momentous in the progress 
of world affairs. We, who have quietly withdrawn ourselves from these years of conflict 
in our preparation for future service, are the Class of Forty-six, who now emerge to take 
our rightful place in shaping the pattern of tomorrow — in so doing shall we achieve our 
new beginning.

A Moment's Pause 



A moment's pause before we turn our faces toward the last lap of our 
journey; a moment's reminiscence of the happy days that made up our 
Junior year : 

"The Waltz of the Flowers," our Junior show, with Liz Krebbs as 
chairman, will remain one of the loveliest of the annual beauty contests. 

We'll never forget our thrill of pride as Irene Taylor led the Tri-Unit 
to victory in the first M.W.C. song contest. Many are the class meetings 
and good old-fashioned get-togethers we have enjoyed with Irene at the 
piano. 

Nancy Hite, Jean Kirby, and Marian Withers were separated from us 
as house presidents of Betty Lewis, Willard, and Cornell, but they remained 
a part of us and shared in all the fun. A cheer for the others, too : Barbara 
Buckham, House President of Mary Ball, Anna White, of Madison, and 
Anna Brauer, of Custis. Three cheers for our able class president, Nelle 
Dawes ! 

The Junior Class enjoyed a lovely tea given by the "Y," which Dr. and 
Mrs. Insley attended. We offer our grateful thanks to Dr. Insley for his 
never-failing help and cooperation as our sponsor. 

The year drew to a close with the traditional Ring Dance, more mean- 
ingful than ever before because this was our first year of participation in 
its grace and beauty. The simple, dignified seal, set in a band of gold, 
represents fond memories of three years at Mary Washington, and promises, 
by the tiny "47" on the side, fulfillment of our hopes and dreams. 

With a lingering look at the graceful columns of Mary Ball Hall, and 
a fresh memory in our hearts of the friendliness which is a part of Tri- 
Unit, we face with courage and expectation our final year of college.

Degrees ... It Won't Be Long! 

With the world at peace again, we returned to our Alma Mater with 
light hearts to begin our second eventful year at Mary Washington Col- 
lege of the University of Virginia. At first, old friends were missed from 
our Freshman class, but transfer students came along to take their places. 
After five years of navy blue and khaki, it was good to have civi-clad 
dates strolling about campus. 

Our class colors, green and white, an innovation at M.W.C., and Sopho- 
more Day brought our members together into a wholesome group which 
bubbled over with enthusiasm and school spirit. Highlights of the year 
included such memorable events as the Beauty Contest in which two of 
our own girls — Sarah Armstrong and Marjorie Batty — placed first and 
second respectively. We emerged from the Song Contest, which called 
forth our utmost musical abilities, with two delightful class songs to carry 
with us through the remainder of our stay here at the college on the hill. 

A "Fantastic Takeoff" was experienced with the production of our 
Benefit. Downright hard work and fun converted it into a harmonious 
display of our varied talent at its best. Teas, dances, and Lyceum programs 
added that certain touch which made our year finer and more complete. 

Social life, however, was but a by-product of the main phase of our life 
at Mary Washington. Major and minor fields of study were decided upon 
and delved into with ardent interest and rigorous research. 

Can we ever forget our housemothers — Mrs. Bushnell and Mrs. Love, 
and their generous and loving guidance for which we are deeply appre- 
ciative. Memories of our dorms, Virginia and Betty Lewis, are also deeply 
implanted in our minds, and will long be remembered as one of the im- 
portant features of our college lives. 

Companionship and festivity coupled with mental stimulation — such 
was our Sophomore year at M.W.C. of the U. of Va.

Freshman Class History 



That first week we were convinced that of all 
the people in the world, we were the most be- 
wildered and forlorn. We couldn't find any place 
to put our clothes or to set up our vast collection 
of photographs; we couldn't remember our suite- 
mates' names or when the next "Y," "AA," or 
Freshman Orientation meeting was, and when 
we found out from someone else we couldn't get 
there. The ever-present saving grace was that our 
suffering was widespread, and that there was al- 
ways someone with whom to mourn the lost 
advantages of a quiet, secure life at home ! 

When that reign of anguish subsided, we began 
to look around us, and we found our first great 
happiness at Mary Washington in the beauty of 
the hill. By then, fall had turned our woods into 
a flamboyantly beautiful scene splashed with 
warm scarlets and yellows. The bright autumn 
trees outlined against a clear blue horizon between 
the pillars of Seacobeck made an unforgettable 
memory for us. We began to make friends and, 
with unceasing attention and help from Big Sis- 
ters, faculty advisors and Student Government, to 
understand and love our college, its aims and tra- 
ditions. The election of class officers was our first 
group movement, and it was then that we first 
thought of ourselves not just as freshmen in col- 
lege but as "The Class of 1949." 

The trials of examination week past, Christ- 
mas holiday brought us the glory of being mem- 
bers of that immediately recognizable group on 
the train and of having our names in the home- 
town paper. When we came back to school, 
eager and rested, we found to our unexpressible 
delight that we had the distinction of being 



"second quarter freshmen," and were exalted in 
being able to direct a confused newcomer on her 
way to Monroe. We discovered then and there, 
with proper discretion, we could study and take 
part in our clubs, too, and began to find life ex- 
citing outside of the classroom and our dorm. 
Forums, benefits, and dance week-ends all claimed 
our attention and we began to feel quite collegiate 
— enough so to be amused when we remembered 
ourselves in that first week. We discovered, too, 
that a sense of duty and responsibility toward 
Mary Washington was active in us, and wondered 
if we might not be beginning to grow up. So 
the days passed quickly into weeks, and weeks 
vanished in the quarter, as the snow and ice which 
had made our woods a glittering, unreal fairy 
domain vanished and the winds grew warm. 
Spring came with more exams and, of course, the 
rewarding vacation and we felt as though we'd 
lived here all our lives, those things were so 
easily accomplished. 

The horse show, May Day, and freshmen bene- 
fit, glorious customs all, made our third quarter 
a spring to be remembered, happily, into old age. 

We looked, then, at our hill, grown green and 
lovely, at a stately white-columned building, 
aged and warmed by the dark green ivy twisting 
on its walls, at our friends' faces over the candle- 
light at dinner and knew that an important part 
of us, of our lives, was here — that something had 
been shared, something given and something 
taken, that the beauty, comradeship and knowl- 
edge that we had found at Mary Washington 
would be our cherished and imperishable trea- 
sures always.

Hold high the torch! 

You did not light its glow — 

'Twas given you by other hands, you know. 

'Tis yours to keep it burning bright, 

Yours to pass on when you no more need light; 

For there are other feet that we must guide, 

And other forms go marching by our side; 

Their eyes are watching every smile and tear 

And efforts which we think are not worthwhile, 

Are sometimes just the very helps they need, 

Actions to which their souls would give most heed; 

So that in turn they'll hold it high 



And say, "I ivatched someone else carry it this way." 
If brighter paths should beckon you to choose, 
Would your small gain compare with all you'd lose? 
Hold high the torch! 
You did not light its glow — 
'Twas given you by other hands, you know. 
I think it started doivn its pathway bright, 
The day the Maker said: "Let there be light." 
And, He, once said, who hung on Calvary's Tree — 
"Ye are the light of the world . . . Qo! . . . Shine — for 
me."

It is we who bring "Y" to the freshmen — watching them organize and build on that which we give 
is only part of the reward given us in return — for in building they will achieve and so pass to others 
the ideals of womanhood realized in those who have gone before. 




Fresh

/ommission 



Another year — another Commission — and so 
much excellent material for forming an organiza- 
tion to further the purpose of "Y" on the Hill. 

After having taken several weeks to "get ac- 
quainted" the Commission elected its officers and 
began discussing plans for the annual doll show. 
And what a show ! With Thanksgiving holidays 
interrupting the initial Doll Show plans, and 
exam week coming up soon after, everything was 
very rushed and exciting up to the last minute. It 
was hard for the judges to come to a decision, but 
Betty Jean Curry's group triumphed by carrying 
off the high honors of the evening with the cud- 
dliest, most playable doll. 

This was just one of the activities we enjoyed 
during the year. We shall never forget the social 
gatherings — and our hostessing at the "Y" teas. 

Our main purpose has been to help the new stu- 



dents become acquainted with the various activi- 
ties of "Y" and to encourage their interest and 
participation in "Y" program. We have worked 
during 1945-46 with this as our goal and have 
found ourselves richer because of the friendships 
we have made and memories we have shared.

proud of the trust placed in us by the preceding 
members. Conceived as the senior honorary so-

ing organization. The members in the Classes of 
1944 and 1945 have shown us well that service 
and recognition of this kind go hand in hand. 

We have tried to continue their activities and 
develop new projects which we think might in- 
crease in some way the social, intellectual, and 
spiritual growth of our fellow students. Con- 
ducting the freshman orientation program on 
campus customs and traditions, publishing the 
second edition of the Student Directory, present- 
ing a series of lectures by Dr. Elizabeth W. Baker 
on Parliamentary procedures, and career confer- 
ences with alumni and students, have been our 
contributions to college life this year. 

As we look to graduation, we also look to our 
future members. Chosen on the basis of scholar- 
ship, leadership, personality, and service to the 
school, the new members will bring to Cap and 
Gown new ideas and new plans. We hope that, 
in return, they will gain new abilities and new joy 
in living.

600 on the dial ... 4 130 on the clock . . . and 
Mary Washington College is on the air! This 
year the campus radio station became affiliated 
with the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System, and 
adopted as its official 
title Station WMWC. 
Daily dramas, campus 
news, the concert hour, 
and the hit tune parade 
have become favorites on 
the Hill. Those who are 
selected to be on the staff 
receive valuable training 
as announcers, actresses, 
engineers, and script 
writers — training which 
will prepare them for 
jobs in radio.

Once again Mary Washington girls, in a spirit 
of brotherhood, contributed to the annual Campus 
Chest. Though we did not soar to the goal our 
expectations had set, we gathered a substantial 
sum to be distributed to various local, national, 
and international organizations, such as the World 
Student Service Fund, Tuberculosis Association, 



Thanksgiving White Fund, Community Fund, 
and British Refugee Children's Fund. Our main 
interest was in the students all over the world 
who so urgently need our help. We are proud to 
know that our small contributions will aid them 
to continue their education. We hope next year 
our challenge will be met more wholeheartedly.

International Relations Club 



In this year just past, the words International 
Relations have come to mean more to us than 
ever before. During the war our activities were 
necessarily curtailed, and we were kept quite busy 
just keeping ourselves informed on the current 
situation. But now that long-dreamed-of "Post- 
war World" has arrived, and through our club 
we have been able to better understand what the 
late Wendell Willkie meant by his term "One 
World." The world has indeed shrunk and we 
must learn to live peaceably in it. 

The International Relations Club, under the 
capable leadership of its president, Katherine 
Knight, has added its bit in fostering better re- 
lationships and in educating the entire student 
body by sponsoring guest speakers. The most out- 
standing event of the year was our trip to Wash- 
ington where we visited both the Senate and 
House of Representatives, as well as the Supreme 
Court. 



Yes, on looking back in review, all the mem- 
bers might well be proud to say "I belonged" in 
this year which will go down in history as the 
beginning of the Atomic Age.

"On Stage Everybody!" That's a familiar 
call to the members of Mary Washington Players, 
one of the most active and largest clubs on the 
Hill. Actresses, stage hands, make-up artists, 
business and publicity girls, lighting technicians, 
costume mistresses, directors — all have their 
place in the players. Every girl who senses the 
glamor of the stage participates in all of the dra- 
matic activities on campus. Apprentices and mas- 
ter members alike have equal opportunity in the 
productions sponsored by the players, and this fall 
the college witnessed a series of one-act plays 
acted by new members and directed by experi- 
enced players. The two major productions of this 
group proved to be outstanding successes, and 
once more the players rang down the curtain on 
a profitable year.

Studying the classics of yesterday, the Modern 
Portias keep their minds attuned to today — striv- 
ing to create in turn, and keeping abreast of liter- 
ary achievements of both national and inter- 
national importance. Not only are these English 
majors and minors of junior and senior rank in- 
terested in the wisdom of the ages, but they are 
equally interested in discovering what the women 



of today are doing to further this quest. 

Modern Portias gather together for the purpose 
of becoming acquainted with and appreciating 
the great works of literature. Meetings resound- 
ing with the spirit of literary criticism and mod- 
ern ideas result in a mingling of the old with the 
new, as we strive toward the art of graceful 
living.

The cultivation of good speech in the postwar 
world is one of the many aims which the society 
is endeavoring to meet by encouraging debates, 
forums, speech contests, and radio work. Con- 
sequently, Pi Sigma Kappa finds correct speaking 
ability conducive to a well-rounded and pro- 
ductive personality. This club offers each indi- 
vidual member an opportunity to improve her 
speech and to instruct others in the art of correct 
speech, interesting content, and good presentation. 
This, we believe, will make for a better under- 
standing between individuals, groups, and nations

The M. W. C. Band, under the able direction

the band benefit, the "Winter Wonderland Dance" 
which we will remember as one of the most pic- 
turesque events of the winter months. 

There was also a most enjoyable trip to Wash- 
ington where the band played for the All-Star 
football game, sponsored by the Touchdown 



Club. Here the band displayed its precision, abil- 
ity, fitness, and splendor in the parade at Griffith 
Stadium. 

On the campus the band provided music for 
a local high school football game and chapel pro- 
grams. 

The band has had a most satisfactory year 
and is anticipating greater achievements in the

Glee Club 



The Glee Club, advanced choral organization 
of Mary Washington College, is composed of 75 
members, who are chosen for their singing abil- 
ity, personality, and musical interest. 

In addition to the enjoyment and cultural value 
to the members themselves, the Glee Club con- 
tributes to many occasions on the Hill through 
solo and small ensemble work, and performances 
by the entire group. 

One of the outstanding concerts of the year is 
the annual Christmas Carol Program which 



always draws a large audience of students, town 
people, and out-of-town visitors. 

In the spring, a formal concert is given, usually 
on a Convocation evening. 

The services of the Glee Club are not limited to 
the campus, for this group of singers responds to 
requests for musical programs from local and 
state organizations, churches, and radio per- 
formances. 

The director is Miss Marion Chauncey and the 
accompanist is Miss Irene Taylor.

tist Churches. 

A busy confusion in the kitchen of the Student 
Center, an open fire, popcorn on a winter's night, 



Inspirationals by candlelight, a chain of hands, 
and "Blest Be The Tie"; a dash to Training 
Union, a cheery invitation — "Come to my 
church"; all of these and more are B. S. U.

As daughters of former students of this college, 
we are bound together by the common desire to 
uphold the traditions of a gentlewoman — charm, 
courtesy, love, honor, and courage. 

Our activities include welcoming Alumnae 
back to the campus, sending Christmas cards to 
our mothers, sponsoring a convocation program 



and a reception, and aiding the local and national 
chapters in their projects. 

The scholarship cup, presented each year by 
the National Association to the Alumnae daughter 
with the highest scholastic average, was awarded 
to Bettie Woodward.

"Fight, fight, fight, for the blue and white," — 
A new pep song, a new year and a new opportunity 
for A. A. to present a recreational program of athletics to 
offset and enhance the strain of a collegiate life ! 

The Freshmen were welcomed with a playday and tea, 
then introduced to M. W. C. standards of tennis, hockey, 
swimming, riding. That memorable bus ride to Rich- 
mond for the Eastern Virginia Field Hockey Tournament 
and Sally Heritage making the Eastern team were high- 
lights of Fall Quarter. We broke tradition and put on 
"Sports Go Bang," the first benefit ever to be presented in 
daylight and out-of-doors. The thrill the spectators knew 
was surpassed only by the keen excitement of the partici- 
pants as the sports of the century passed in review. 



When the winter rain and snows came, we took refuge 
in the gym and interest turned to volleyball and intra- 
mural basketball. Many braved the elements of a blustery 
Saturday night for one of those anything-may-happen 
cabin parties. 

Spring brought a surge of activity, and ruction let 
loose on Devil-Goat Day when both teams fought for 
the glory and honor of their colors Posture week re- 
sulted in the selection of the posture queen, and the sea- 
son ended with the Spring Horse Show and the colorful 
pageantry of May Day. 

A successful year was climaxed with the presentation 
of athletic achievement awards at the annual banquet. 





'It looked extremely rocky for the 'Senior' nine that day; 
The score stood two to four, with but one inning left to play. 
So, when 'MacDonald' died at second, and 'Goodloe' did the same, 
A pallor wreathed the features of the patrons of the game. 

'Then from the gladdened multitude went up a joyous yell — 
It rumbled in the mountaintops, it rattled in the dell; 
It struck upon the hillside and rebounded on the flat; 
For 'Toni,' mighty 'Toni,' was advancing to the bat." 



Apologies to the Author 




At a strenuous moment it appears that the "B^eds" are in favor. 



The day is fair, 



the players are in readiness, 



and the same is about to be sin. 




In any Gymkhana or May Horse Show the equitation classes and the 
Hunter's Hack build for the climax of the coveted "Knock-down and 
Out" jumping class. . . . 





Remember Eley . . . heels down, body forward, and drop his head. 



Feminine Rpbin Hoods in the Hill's

the smile of good sportsmanship.

Column right — March! To the rear — March! 
To the winds — March! as Cavalry on exhibition 
execute their well-drilled military maneuvers. 

Not only does the Cavalry put on exhibition 
drills — both mounted and on foot — but, in addi- 
tion, overnight rides and hikes are a specialty. The 
main yearly event is the ten-day summer pack- 
trip into the Blue Ridge Mountains. Oh, that 
mountain air ! That food ! The bugs and the rain ! 

The Cavalry Troop, organized during the war 



for emergency, is continuing on in peace as a spe- 
cial service organization. As a project it has taken 
over the salvage of scrap paper on the campus, 
giving the proceeds to the Red Cross, and will- 
ingly performs any duty requested of a military 
group such as guard duty on special occasions. 

The Cavalry represents a disciplined group of 
horsemen who, at either work or play, never lose 
that fine spirit of sportsmanship or the comradely 
manner in which they work together.

Throughout the school year, M. W. C. girls may be 
seen riding in the ring at Oak Hill Stables, or cantering 
along woodland trails, or participating in one of the 
four horse shows held every year. In the fall, new jocks 
are initiated to riding via the experienced backs of Joe, 
Prospect, or Gladsom, horses whose unfailing good 
manners and gentle dispositions have long served to 
build up confidence and skill in beginners. In November, 
the Junior Riding Club, which consists of Fredericksburg 
youngsters, conducts a show in which the excellent horse- 
manship of these junior riders vies with that of the ad- 
vanced college girls while hopeful parents and excited 
classmates hang on the ring fence. 

Winter brings icy weather, which is soon forgotten in> 
riding along a frozen ridge under snow laden evergreens 
while the waters of Hazel Run, bubbling and falling 
over rocks, wind through a ravine far below. Winter 
also brings fox-hunting, a sport loved by every rider -who 
has ever followed the hounds on the devious and elusive 
trail of the fox. After a day's hunting, jocks, exhilarated 
by a long run with plenty of fences, logs, and ditches to 
add to the general excitement, hack their mounts back to 
the stables to dismount on numb feet and trek back to 
college where they discuss every detail of the hunt over 
a welcome dinner. 

Gradually, drizzling rains, budding trees, and the 



earthy smell of recently plowed land, announce the ar- 
rival of spring. In early April, the Oak Hill Hunt holds 
its annual Hunter Trials, at Snowden Farm, in which 
college girls compete over a difficult hunter course set 
up in a green field enclosed by glistening white fences. 
During the spring, every class takes at least one breakfast 
ride, at sunrise, over trails lined with dogwood trees in 
bloom and returns to a hearty breakfast at the clubhouse. 
In May, jocks begin diligently to practice figure eights, 
hacking, and jumping, in anticipation of the biggest 
equestrian event of the year, the Spring Horse Show. On 
rainy days, they sprawl around an open fire in the club- 
house, while Mr. Walther lectures on the conformation 
of the horse or some other phase of the fascinating sub- 
ject about which there is always so much to learn. When 
the big day arrives, jocks spring out of bed at dawn to 
see if the day will be a clear one before going out to braid 
manes and tails on horses already glistening from a week's 
rest and constant brushing and currying. Finally, the 
classes, which are judged by some of the most eminent 
horsemen in the United States, begin, and good horse- 
manship is rewarded by blue, red, yellow, and white 
ribbons, while the champion rider is awarded a silver 
cup. Thus, another year's work and fun is brought to a 
climax and a close.

Another year just whirled by and with it a big- 
ger and better Terrapin Club. The mermaids 
numbered about thirty with Love Wohnus, as the 
able president, Dorothy Marvin, the vice-presi- 
dent, and Ann Tilton, the secretary-treasurer. 
Initiation went off with a bang and then all of the 
girls settled down to some real hard work. Work 
is what we called it, but really it was fun for all 
because it meant practicing up for the Exhibition, 
Aquacade, and last but not least the Southern and 



National Telegraphies. Miss Leonard, the club's 
sponsor, did a grand job with her timely sug- 
gestions and leadership, so big things were defi- 
nitely expected when we swam off those Tele- 
graphics. Be sure to watch for glad tidings on the 
performance of all these Neptune lassies who 
swim with such grace and ease and with the 
speed of the best of fishes in the years to come, 
because they won't let you down!

Alumnae 

These two Alumnae of the Mary Washington 
College National Association are high-up officials 
who arrived on the campus one day in spring — 
Mrs. Charles S. Payne, President, and Miss Betty 
Dupre, Publicity Chairman — to plan for the 
Homecoming on the week-end of April sixth and 
seventh. (They look the part of stylists on pa- 
rade!) The only reason the other officials in the 
upper bracket are not in the picture is solely be- 
cause they did not come at that same time when 
the official photographer was scurrying round 
about for the "best shots" for the 1946 Battle- 
field. 

That was a great heart-warming week-end for 
Mary Washington College when her daughters 
came trooping back; the dogwoods seemed to be 
a-bloom with fresh abandonment, gala of mood, 
in their honor. It will be yet a greater day when 
this rank and file of a by-gone day come trooping 
back again, and yet again. 






The Seniors "Pull Doivn the Shades" successfully. 




'The Waltz of Flowers" . . . Nell, president, framed attractively. . . . Sarah and Marjorie, beauty ivinners.
