Mary Baldwin News Letter 

Published by the Alumnae Association of Mary Baldwin College 
\'^^i- >^ Staunton. Virginia, April, 1928 No. 5 

The Purpose of the Mary Baldwin Nezus Letter is to inform all Mary 

Baldwin girls of what the College, the Alumna Association, 

and its members are doing 


My sisters, daughters of one Mother all. 
Across dim hills which bar me from your view 
In challenge, yet in comradeship, to you — 
Unseeing but assured — I send this call. 
Knowing that you are there and that the light 
You tend, altar, or taper, is the same 
As that I hold, caught from one parent flame: 
Clean, brave, unsatisfied, glowing and white; 

That in its very nature seems to bear 

To every votary the necessity 

Prometheus-like forevermore to share. 

I had said, "Your responsibility 

Remember," but what need my warning where 

Such flaming challenge stands eternally? 

— Katharine Allyn See, '27. 


The recent action of our Board of Trustees, which 
assures Mary Baldwin in another year full recognitio ' 
as a standard college by the \'irginia State Board of 
Education, means that one more important step has been 
taken in the evolution of our College. 

Our Alma Mater, from its foundation until now, has 
stood for a very high grade of collegiate work. As an 
educator Miss Baldwin was distinguished for her pi- 
oneer spirit, her breadth of vision, her unwavering de- 
termination to give to young women, especially of Vir- 
ginia and the South, the highest academic opportunities 
that could be provided for them. In planning her cur- 
riculum and organizing her faculty she took counsel 
with professors of the University of Virginia, and built 
up a "University Course," with Schools of English, His- 
tory, Latin, Alathematics, Science, and ]^Iodern Lan- 
guages comparable to those maintained at the leading 
men's colleges of her day. And all through the years 
even before the establishment of our four-year college 
in 1923, our collegiate work has been maintained and 
continually strengthened, and it has been our pride that 
three sessions of intensive study were required after 
graduation from high school to win a diploma at Mary 
Baldwin in the literary course. 

For a long period academic work was not so definitely 
standardized as it is today. Training in the higher 
branches of learning could be combined with instruction 
in elementary subjects, but now no work of collegiate 
grade can be fulh^ accredited if a preparatory school is 
maintained in the same plant. So in more recent years 
the institutions whose standards had been nearest those 
maintained by Mary Baldwin, e. g., Agnes Scott, Con- 
verse, Hollins, Sweet Briar — have cut off their prepara- 
tory schools. 

So proud have we been at Mary Baldwin of our fiiu- 
preparatory work, so cognizant of the rich service which 
our school has rendered to the younger generations of 
students that we have attempted the Herculean task of 
maintaining both departments intact until we could 
move our college to a new plant of its own and continue 
the preparatory work in our present beautiful buildings. 
The funds which would make that separation possible 
are not yet in sight, and with keen reluctance the Board 
has decided that the preparatory school shall be discon- 
tinued until such time as the college can be provided 
with a sejjarate plant. The special departments — Music, 
Art, Expression, Domestic Science — will be continued as 
usual. We now have only sixty-nine resident students 
of preparatory grade, and there are as many day stu- 
dents enrolled in our college classes as there are in the 
preparatory department exclusive of the graded depart- 

We regret most profoundly' the passing of our pre- 
paratory department, even if it be only for a season, but 

a ruling by our State Board of Education last Septem- 
lier makes it obligatory that on and after September 1, 
1929, anyone beginning to teach in an accredited high 
school of \'irginia hold a baccalaureate degree from a 
four-year standard college, and we regard it of the most 
vital importance that we provide our graduates with a | 
diploma which will enable them to win the recognition | 
and secure the positions t(j which they are entitled. 
Would Miss Baldwin have accepted calmly the fact that 
her graduates could not teach even in the accredited 
high schools of her own state? After next year the 
Virginia State Board, following the example of other 
such boards, will not grant recognition even as a Junior 
College to an institution which maintains any grades 
below high school. So, to obtain even that ranking we 
should have to give up all of our primary and grammar 
school grades. 

Again the challenge comes to us, girls of A. F. S., ^L 
B. S., and AL B. C, by our loyalty and sacrificial service 
to maintain for our beloved Alma Mater the distin- 
guished rank which she has always held among the edu- 
cational institutions of the South. 

It is our responsibility and our privilege to encourage 
the college in this great step forward, and our goal can 
lie reached only by the co-operation and support of each 
girl. Individually we are helpless, but collectively we 
form a wonderful army that can, by enthusiasm and in- 
terest, sweep away all obstacles and achieve triumj)hant 
success for the school we love. 



This is a portion of a letter received by Miss Higgins 
from the Virginia State Board of Education, dated 
Ararch21, 1928: 

"The State Board of Education at its meeting yester- 
day considered carefully your letter in regard to the new 
plans for Mary Baldwin. The Board heartily approved 
the steps that are being taken and authorized the Sec- 
retary of the Board to recommend graduates of the in- 
stitution for admission to graduate schools of recog- 
nized colleges and universities. I shall, therefore, be 
very glad indeed to write appropriate letters in behalf 
of any young ladies, who graduate from your four-year 
program, in order to secure for them graduate stand- 


Questions have been asked by our old girls about the 
disposition of the money paid, and pledge-d, during the 
Financial Campaign. They will be interested to know 
that the total amount has been invested and will be 
drawing interest until such a time as it can be definitely 
appropriated as a building and endowment fund. 


Do you remember how lovely the Sheuandouh Valley 
is in the spring? 

Do you remember how yuu laughed and cried the last 
lew days of Commencement when the full realization 
came that you were leaving Alary Baldwin for good ? 

Do you remember the vows you made to alicays write 
and keep in touch with your dearest friends? Have 
you ? 

Why don't you drt)p that dearest girl friend a line and 
make a date to meet her at Mary Baldwin for Com- 
mencement? \\'hat fun, what joj', what pleasure to see 
old and dear friends and recall the happy memories of 
our school days as we wander on the green terraces 
and through the .long halls we loved so well. 

Come back and see us on Alumnae Da3^ The school 
will be only too happy to entertain you. One section of 
it is to be turned over entire!}' to the old girls, and we 
are going to have an Alumnae Day program that you 
will regret missing all your life — if you do. The girls 
who came last year are making plans to come again. 
Come back, Mary Baldwin girls ! We want you ! 


As the time passes we realize more and more how 
much the Birthday Cards are meaning to our old girls. 
We receive letters every day which express very feel- 
mgly how truly this remembrance brings with it a flood 
of happy memories. We are taking this opportunity to 
tell each of you what a pleasure it is to receive such 
letters, and to explain how this service is made possible. 
As we mentioned in the November News Letter, Mrs. 
Mary Mitchell Black has compiled the files of birthdays 
from the records in the office of the school. She ad- 
dressed and fixed them for mailing, which meant a tre- 
mendous amount of work. Mrs. Ellen Howison Chris- 
tian very willingly consented to mail them every day. 
You can all realize what a responsibility that was and 
what an unceasing operation ! We are greatly in her 
debt for the time and effort that she so cheerfully gave 
us, and we are sure you who have received the lovely 
poem will join us in our thanks. Mrs. Black and Mrs. 
Christian have been forced to give up the work because 
of other duties, and our Birthday Card Chairman is 
now Miss Dorothy Hisey. She is doing a remarkable 
piece of work, keeping both the files and mailing the 
cards out each day. New birthdays and corrections in 
address come in each day, which necessitate constant 
work on her records. We are indeed fortunate to have 
such a competent and faithful chairman ! The Associa- 
tion owes and renders a deep appreciation to these vol- 
untary helpers, without whom we could never have had 
our Birthday Cards. 


Are there any of us who do not know how long and 
how longingly S. M. A. has turned its gaze over the hill 
towards Mary Baldwin, and groaned inwardly and aud- 
ibly that she was so self-sufficient? S. M. A. has always 
been willing and waiting to play the hero to the "dam- 
sels in distress" — except they never got in distress ! Un- 
til now ! And such distress ! We had no Birthday 
Card. Last year, you remember, we used Roselle Mer- 
cier Montgomery's lovely poem, "Across the Years." 
But when the time came for the new one we were lost. 
We tried every avenue we could think of, with no suc- 
cess — when lo ! the hero appeared. He is a very live 
and able hero, and is the Head of the English Depart- 
ment at S. M. A. Captain Marshall Brice is the author 
of the charming poem, "Yesterdaj'," which we are using 
for our 1928 Birthday Card. He is making quite a rep- 
utation for himself in the realm of verse, having written 
many very beautiful lines besides our "Yesterday," and, 
we understand, is compiling a volume of original poems. 
We are more grateful than we can say for his very 
timely assistance, and offer here our appreciation and 
our thanks. Three cheers for our hero from .S. M. A. ! 


By Sue Stribling Snodgr.\ss 

Of late years, Boswell has become a more interesting 
figure in the literary world than the "immortal" (to 
him) Doctor Johnson. So the book of Memoirs and 
Letters that came into my hands not long ago reflects 
the character and talents of its writer as much as of 
its subject. This book was not intended for the public, 
but is a memorial of affection to preserve for his own 
family the vivid personality of Lewis Meriwether Dab- 
ney, brilliant son of a brilliant father— Dr. Robert L. 
Dabney, the theologian "par excellence" of the Southern 
Presbyterian Church. The reading public are the losers, 
for to my mind this book is fully the equal, in style and 
subject matter, of the popular Life and Letters of Wal- 
ter Hiner Page. As I read of the Old South, the re- 
finement and culture of the best Virginia blood, trans- 
planted to the New South, to Texas, and of his achieve- 
ments in his adopted state, I could not help but think, 
"Wouldn't Miss Baldwin have been proud of Stella?" 
For Mr. Dabney's wife and the compiler of his Me- 
moirs was Stella Hutcheson, who used to lug around 
the corridors and up the steep "Covered Way" as big a 
pile of books as herself ! She took Senior Latin under 
Aliss Strickler when she wasn't much bigger than her 
huge Latin Dictionary. 

She now divides her time between Dallas, New York, 
and Europe, and has just returned from Italy and 
Sicily. She wrote : 

"After an enchanting month in Sicily, saturated with 

the legends and beauty of the Greek world, I came past 
Scylla and Charyblis last night on the ferry boat which 
carries the fast night express from Messina to Naples. 
The crossing was frightfully rough, and no wonder the 
ancients lost so many fleets at this dreaded spot and 
feared it so. I hope I shall see you in New York this 
fall. I do want to see you and talk with you and Roselle 
again about modern days and the ancient world with 
which I am saturated at present." 

Roselle Mercier Montgomery has again won a prize 
from The Poetry Society of America. The poem is en- 
titled "Marpessa," and voices not only Marpessa's, but 
every woman's experience. She chose the mortal, but 
ever after knew wistfulness — the beat of wings was in 
her ears I A longer poem, "Atalanta," appeared in the 
November, 1927, Century, and various others are pub- 
lished in magazines and papers from time to time. 
What would probably most please her old Mentor, 
Miss Strickler, is that in a school textbook on Gods and 
Heroes of the ancient world, her poems, while classic 
allusions, are put as references at the close of various 
chapters. So Miss Strickler's pupil is established as an 
American Classicist, and we who love them both, are 
full of pride and satisfaction. 

Another sweet singer who has added to the laurels of 
Mary Baldwin is Virginia Lucas, of Charles Town, 
West Virginia, or rather of "Rion Hall" on the Shenan- 

The title of her latest book is Ju7ie, a Year Book of 
Sonnets. They are exquisite verses of wooded moun- 
tain, flowery meadows, and star-born river, the lovely 
Shenandoah. In it are also sonnets to Michael Angelo, 
Rosetti, Swinburne, Byron, Shelley, Keats, to Jeanne 
D'Arc, to Rupert Brooke, "Tucker of Virginia," and 
"Maury and the Pass of Goshen" — a wealth of beautiful 
thought in rhythmic lines. Virginia Lucas' brain, a won- 
derful treasure-house of knowledge, her Southern pride 
and loyalty, her clear ecstatic Christian vision, while 
yielding to none in appreciation of the pagan classics, 
arouse in me such enthusiasm that I long to see her 
gifts better recognized in the world of letters. With 
characteristic modesty, her book of poems is bound only 
in paper (the only criticism I have to make of it) and 
can be had of The Shenandoah Publishing Co., Stras- 
burg, Virginia 

Poems by Stella Hutcheson Dabney appear from time 
to time in the New York papers. The following is 
from the New York Times: 


Great, bare limbs and twisted, naked boughs. 

Do you yearn for tender, pushing buds 

Of spring before they come? When wild winds whip 

Your branches, do you sigh for little leaves 

To sing and nestle ? No, I think you stand 

Through Winter days as Mothers sit, bereft, 

With empty hands, lonely but comforted 

And resting from the care of other springs. 

Listless and heavy with remembered hours. 

Of teeming life, of aching, pulsing pain. 

Of myriad voices in the hollow space. 

Patient you wait, and brooding all content 

To have the little buds come bursting when 

The ardent Summer Sun calls lustily. 

— Stella Hutcheson Dabney.

We should be very glad to publish more extensive notices in 
regard to the lives of deceased alumnae if the information is sent 
in to us. 

It is with a sense of great loss that we announce to 
the Association the death of Mrs. Ollie Brown Hunter, 
of Staunton, Va., on December 23, 1927. She died very 
suddenly after an illness of only a few days. Mrs. 
Hunter had many friends among the old girls and was 
one of our most interested and faithful alumnse. She 
will be remembered for her untiring co-operation in put- 
ting on the Christmas Bazaar every year. Her cheerful- 
ness and charming manner endeared her to all who 
knew her. 

Mrs. Belle Cowan Walton died December 7, 1926. 

The newspaper clipping which was sent us contained 
in part this tribute : 

"Mrs. Belle Cowan Walton, beloved wife of Rev. Wil- 
liam Muse Walton, passed away shortly after midnight, 
and the hearts of the entire community will be filled 
with grief when the sad news becomes known today. 

"It is difficult to put in words all that Mrs. Walton 
meant to this city and community during her long and 
useful life. 

"Member of a family that has always been promi- 
nently identified with all that was best in the commun- 
ity, with unusual gifts of mind and charms of person- 
ality, Mrs. Walton was, as maid and matron, typical of 
Vicksburg's loveliest w^omanhood." 

Ester Robbins died August 4, 1927, at Bay Shore, 
Long Island, N. Y. 

Mrs. Patterson Rorer (Minnie McClanahan), of 
Roanoke, Va. 

Lillian Lee Starr, of Weatherford, Texas. 

Mrs. Wm. P. Bugbee (Adelaide Pettit), of Char- 
lottesville, Va. 

Mrs. William Pace (Harriet Lilley). 

]\Irs. Driscoll Rooke (Norma Breeden). 

Grace Smith. 

Airs. Mary Shields Stamper (Mary Shields), died 
April, 1927. 

There are many old girls who will remember Mar- 
garet Buchanan, for years a maid at the school, and 
will be sorry to learn that she died in December, 1927. 


This year's "Granddaughters" had hardly realized they 
were in any way dififerent from other Baldwin girls, or 
more privileged than the rest of the school until they 
found themselves at Mrs. Russell's home for tea, their 
first important event of the year. And such teas as this 
are important. It was a lovely afternoon in every way. 
Now, for the first time, it w^as impressed on them that 
there was such an organization as the Granddaughters' 
Club, and all those who were lucky enough to have had 
either a mother or a grandmother at Mary Baldwin are 
automatically members. \'\'e number sixteen this year.

October the fourth is quite an eventful day at Mary 
Baldwin, but especially so to the "Granddaughters." We 
were excused fr^-m classes early to attend the Alumnae 
Luncheon. "Why are you so dressed up" "Where are 
you going?" "Remember what you have to eat so you 
can tell us when you come back!" were the last words 
we heard as we got into an automobile again and drove 

away. On reaching the Country Club Inn we looked for 
anyone from home and then met the pleasant, "I went to 
school with your mother." 

Of course the luncheon played an important part, for 
we certainly have those "school girl appetites." The 
talks, though, were really of more importance than the 
dinner, if anything could Ije, for what could we, es- 
pecially we "Granddaughters," want to hear about more 
than what our mothers and other girls used to do when 
they were in school, as well as what graduates of our 
Alma Mater are doing all over the world. 

We were all very much thrilled that we had been per- 
mitted to share in the celebration of this memorable 
day and, I assure you, when we came back with our 
tale of our wonderful time there wasn't a girl in school 
who didn't wish that her mother had come to Mary 

There is something new under the sun in the category 
of clubs. This is another one of those exclusive or- 
ganizations which you may enter if you have had pre- 
decessors. A surprisingly large number of girls were 
found to have sisters who went here before them, and 
among this number a goodly proportion were "Grand- 
daughters." Both of which facts are striking tributes 
to Mary Baldwin. So the "Little Sisters" organized 
with Miss Abbie McFarland and Miss Gertrude Ed- 
mondson, the two "little sisters" of the faculty, as their 
sponsors. Members of the club include Frances Baker, 
Eleanor Baldwin, Elvira Boxcly, Louise Bowen, Annie 
Bedinger, Dorothy Dils, Catherine Dunton, Jane Griffin, 
Ruth Grady, Gene Harmon, Alary Bruce Harvery, 
Agnes Junkin, Jean Keiffer, Agnes McDonald, Cammy 
Parker, Louise Pense, Marion Ragan, Dorothy Rumpf, 
Wilma Stuart, Patsy Shafifer, Mary Spindle, Ruth See, 
Betty Wright, Sally Wright, Susan Wright, Katherine 
Whittier, Elizabeth Hume, Elizabeth Woods. 


The following is an excerpt from Campus Comnie}its, 
the college bi-weekly paper, and perhaps should have a 
note of explanation for the old girls who are not fa- 
miliar with campus slang and nick-names. In those 
gloomy days right after Christmas vacation when one 
is so homesick and studying is so difficult, the Mary 
Baldwin girls decided that each girl should have what 
they term a "peanut." For this peanut (schoolmate) 
one does a thoughtful act each day, but does not reveal 
one's identity to the peanut. 

"For years, Mary Baldwin has shielded under protect- 
ing wings : nuts. Nuts that teachers simply couldn't 
crack. But, now there has sprung a new race, a very 
crackable race : peanuts. The younger generation is in- 
clined to be rather inventive with Lillian Carmichael as 
an extremely capable representative. 

"You see, each peanut has a peanut, and each peanut 
is owned by another peanut. (Oh! my kingdom for a 

syiioinm.) No one is his own master. No oiu' is in- 
dependent. It's a rather fine feeling, however; for this 
new breed of jieanut is a rather affectionate hreed, i)er- 
hai)S a trifle generous, and altogether deceitful, I shall 
admit. Everyone is led to believe that she is someone's 
I)eanut, when it is )iot true at all. Everyone is in a 
daze: watching peanuts float around (bestowing small 
presents) watching peanuts tip-toe around (concealing 
endless oddities until the proper moment) — watching 
peanuts fish around (????????: hunting, ever hunting). 

"Everyone is financially embarrassed, supposedly, why 
not Peanuts aren't necessarily truthful, or necessarily 
wealthy, or necessarily generous. It all depends on the 
character. Please, all peanuts ! — be like the peanut 
whose peanut I am. (?) She is perfect. Generous, 
wealthy, ambitious. 

"En avant peanuts." 


The following are clippings from the newspapers of 
the respective towns in which there are local Mary Bald- 
win Alumnae Chapters. They give us a glimpse of the 
activities of each : 

Cumberland, Maryland 

]\Irs. Paul Williams entertained the local alumnae of 
Alar}- Baldwin College at a beautifully appointed lunch- 
eon at the Algonquin Hotel, Cumberland, Md., on Jan- 
uary 19th. The table was decorated with a lovely basket 
of yellow blossoms, while attractive place cards added 
greatly to its charm. 

The Cumberland girls have met in this way several 
times before, but not until this time did the}- form a 
regularly organized chapter of the Alumnae Association. 

Mrs. Margarett Kable Russell, president of the Na- 
tional Association, was the honor guest of the occasion 
and made a verj' delightful talk. She set before the 
girls the needs and aims of the association in an inspir- 
ing way and brought them a great deal of interesting 
news about the school and the alumnae work. 

Mrs. Albert Doub is chairman of the Cumberland 
chapter, and it is due largely to her efforts and support 
that the organization was made possible. Other officers 
of the chapter include Mrs. Paul Williams, vice-chair- 
man, ]\Irs. D. R. Bowie, secretary and treasurer. 

Mrs. Williams was a charming hostess, and her guests 
thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity she gave them of 
meeting with old school-mates and friends. 

The luncheon was pronounced a great success bj' all 
those present, and it is felt to be only the beginning of 
a ver>' active chapter. Girls were present from Hagers- 
town, Frostburg, and Lonaconing, and great enthusiasm 
was shown in furthering alumnae work in Maryland. 

Harrisonburg, Virginia 

The Alumnae Association of Mary Baldwin Seminary 
met Thursday at 1 :00 p. m., at the Spotswood Country 

( lull. A delicious course dinner was served at tai>les 
decorated in yellow and white, the school colors. The 
centerpieces were of calendulas an<l fnecias, and on 
each table were yellow tapirs. 

Mrs. Herbert J. Taylor, chairman of ihi Staunton 
chapter, gave a talk on what an alumnae chapter means 
in a community. Miss Louclla Torrence sang several 
selections, accompanied by Miss Mary Weade at the 
piano. Miss Dorothy Curry discussed the imiiortancc of 
alumnie work from the college girls' standpoint. This 
was followed by a reading bj' Miss Elvira Boxley.

Richmond, Virginia 

A most delightful affair was held on Saturday, Jan- 
uary 21st, at the Country Club of Virginia, when the 
Richmond Chapter of the Mary Baldwin Alumnae As- 
sociation entertained at luncheon, with more than thirty 
guests present. 

The success of the occasion w'as due largely to the 
eft'orts of the committee in charge, which was composed 
of Mrs. Lucius Care}^ Mrs. E. C. Darling, Mrs. Cole- 
man Wortham, and Airs. John Randolph. 

The decorations were yellow and white, the school 
colors, and were attractix el}' carried out in the place 
cards, flowers, etc. 

Airs. Cary Ellis Stern, chairman of the Richmond 
chapter, made a charming introductory talk. She had 
been untiring in her interest and efforts to promote the 
organization of alumnae in the city. She greeted the 
guests in the name of their alma mater, comparing the 
beginning of the Richmond chapter to the launching of 
a frail bark, whose success depended on the co-opera- 
tion of each member. In the name of the chapter, she 
extended a warm welcome to the guests of the occasion, 
Airs. Alargarett Kable Russell, and Mr. William Wayt 
King, of Staunton, introducing Airs. Russell as the first 

Airs. Russell brought a message of enthusiasm and in- 
spiration for activity of the chapter, congratulating them 
on their success. 

She was followed by Air. W. W. King, who holds a 
place in the heart of every Alary Baldwin girl that is 
peculiarly his own. He gave a splendid synopsis of the 
changes and improvements, which have taken place in 
the school in recent years, both in the school plant and 
in the academic department. 

Lynchburg, Virginia 
Mary Baldwin College Alumnae gave a bridge party 
yesterday afternoon at the home of Mrs. R. H. Pritch-

light refreshments and many flowers adding to the 

Roanoke, Virginia 

The Roanoke Chapter, Mary Baldwin Alumnae, was 
entertained on Saturday afternoon at "Roselawn," the 
home of Mrs. Charles Smith, in Salem, by three of its 
Salem members, Mrs. Smith, Mrs. C. B. Price, and Mrs. 
G. E. Koontz. 

After the business meeting of the chapter, over which 
Miss Virginia Sneed, the chairman, presided, refresh- 
ments were served. 

The auction bridge part>' given on Friday afternoon 
by the Roanoke and Salem Chapter, Mary Baldwin 
Alumnae, at the Elks' Club, was a most delightful one, 
at which over fifty tables engaged in play. 

The committee in charge was : Miss Virginia Sneed, 
Miss Elizabeth Nelson, Miss Elizabeth Lynn, and Miss 
Katherine Huff. 

The following were awarded the prizes for the three 
top scores:- Miss Janet Botts, Mrs. C. P. Blair, and 
Mrs. S. J. Evans. 

Refreshments were served after the game, and at the 
conclusion of the party, Mrs. M. M. Caldwell, in behalf 
of the alumnae, thanked the guests for making this card 
party a great success. 

Lexington, Virginia 

Miss Nettie Smith and Mrs. Kate Hoge Davidson, of 
Lexington, Va., were charming hostesses on Saturdaj', 
February 25th, to the old Baldwin girls of Lexington, 
-and Rockbridge County, entertaining them at tea. "Are 
you a Marj' Baldwin girl?" "Well, I didn't know you 
went to Mary Baldwin" — were the exclamations heard 
on every side. Laughter and warm greetings from old 
friends made the occasion a most pleasant one. Who 
do you suppose was our oldest "old girl" present? Mrs. 
Lucy Bailey Dabney, who attended A. F. S. fifty-nine 
years ago ! You'd never guess it though, for she was as 
full of life as the youngest member there. 

The meeting was opened by Miss Smith, who ex- 
tended a cordial greeting to all the old girls present 
and introduced Mrs. Margarett K. Russell, of Staunton, 
Va. Mrs. Rusell told about the work the Alumnae As- 
sociation is doing, what its aims are, and explained why 
it needs the support of each individual girl. She then 
introduced Mrs. Emily Pancake Smith, of Staunton, 
who talked on "What an .Mumnae Chapter Can Mean 
to a Community." She brrmght out the fact that a 

chapter can serve the community by presenting artists 
whose performances will enrich the cultural atmosphere 
of the town or other benefits which will add to the rich- 
ness of its social life. Each financial success of these 
efforts brings us nearer the consumation of our College 

Miss Nancy McFarland, of Mary Baldwin College, 
explained the "why and wherefore" of the recent 
changes made in the College. An informal discussion 
of the subject followed, after which delicious refresh- 
ments were served by the hostesses. The guests lin- 
gered by the cheerful open fire, sipping their tea and 
recalling some of the amusing and happy incidents of 
their school days. 

The Lexington girls were an interested and appreci- 
ative group. They were anxious to understand the 
present situation of the Alumnae Association, why we 
needed their help, and how they could show their loy- 
alt}. We feel that the meeting was a tremendous suc- 
cess. Miss Agnes Penick was nominated for chairman 
of a proposed Rockbridge County Chapter, and we ex- 
pect to hear quite soon that they have a full-fledged 

New York City 

The New York Chapter of Mary Baldwin girls was 
most delightfully entertained by Mrs. William Robert 
Craig at her apartment on Park Ave., February 28th. 
Though the group of girls was comparatively small, a 
spirit of interest and enthusiasm prevailed which helped 
to make up for the lack of members. 

Due to sickness in the family ^Irs. Osborn Scudder, 
the chairman of the chapter, was unable to be present. 
Mrs. G. \\ . Felter was requested to take charge of the 

Mrs. Roselle Mercier Alontgomery and Miss Hazel 
Rumpf told of their meeting with Miss Higgins as she 
was passing through the citj-. Mrs. Montgomery also 
read a letter from Miss Higgins telling of the recent 
change at Hilary Baldwin. The members expressed their 
approval of this new move. 

Mrs. Montgomery suggested that a resolution be 
passed which should express the appreciation of the 
chapter to Miss Mary Elder for her loyalty, unfailing 
efforts, and interest in serving so faithfully as the secre- 
tary and treasurer of the chapter. It was done with 
unanimous approbation. 

The chapter was very fortunate in having present, 
Miss Dorothy Curry, of Staunton, Va., a 1926 graduate 
of the college, who for the past few months has been 
working with Mrs. Russell in the Alumnae office. Miss 
Currj' gave some pertinent information concerning the 
.\lumnae work and how it is carried on, and added 
greatly to the interest of the meeting. 

Plans for a luncheon were then discussed, April 25th 
l)eing adopted as a probable date for the affair which 
will be held at the Waldorf or the Barbizon. 

Staunton, Virginia 

Frieda Hem pel Concert 

Within the past two or three years, the Staunton and 
Augusta County Chapter of the Mary Baldwin Alumnae 
Association has brought to Staunton several high class 
artists, which has added much to the cultural advan- 
tages of the community, and has also assisted materially 
in raising our apportionments for the College Fund. 

On Frida}' evening, February 3rd, the chapter pre- 
sented in concert in the New Theatre, Miss Frieda 
Hempel, noted coloratura soprano, who sang to a full 
house. The large and appreciative audience was more 
than charmed with Miss Hempel's beautiful voice, as 
shown in a delightful and varied program, ranging 
from simple lyrics to dramatic pieces of great power. 
She was assisted by Mr. Louis P. Fritze, a flutist, 
whose solos and obligates captivated the audience, and 
by Mr. Frank Bibb at the piano, a wonderful accom- 

While the Hempel concert was our most ambitious 
undertaking up to this time, it was also a decided finan- 
cial success. 

Miss Hempel said concerning the concert : "The 
Staunton concert is among our happiest memories. 
From beginning to end, the evening was beautiful. The 
audience was an inspiration — and every one seemed in 
the spirit of the thing. And then the charming re- 
ception to close it all. 

"The weather is glorious here — and if Florida scenery 
were only as alluring as the mountains and valleys of 
\ irginia !" 

Ellen Brown, 
CorrespO)iding Secretary Stainiton Chapter. 

Charlotte, North Carolina 
On !March 28th the Mary Baldwin Alumnae in Char- 
lotte and vicinitv" met at the Hotel Charlotte to have 
tea with Mrs. Russell of Staunton, Va., and hear from 
her the latest news of the school and of the alumnae 
work in which she is so active. The girls were in- 
tensely interested in the work the Association is carrj'- 
ing on and decided to join the ranks of active alumnae 
by forming themselves into a Charlotte Chapter of 
Marj^ Baldwin Alumnae. The officers of the chapter 
will be announced in the July News Letter. We con- 
gratulate them and extend our heartiest wishes for a 
most successful organization. 

Savannah, Georgia 
The former students of Mary Baldwin College who 
are now living in or near Savannah were invited to 
meet Mrs. Russell at the Hotel De Soto, for tea on 
Saturday, March 31. A splendid representative number 
were present and the girls voted to show their interest 
in the work and their loyalty^ to the school by organiz- 
ing an alumnje chapter in Savannah. With such a group 

as they have it should not be long before we arc hearing 
great things of the Savannah girls. The names of their 
officers will also be published in the July News Letter. 

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 

An invitation has been issued to ail Mary Baldwin 
girls living in Philadelphia and vicinity to meet for 
afternoon tea at the Ritz-Carlton, on Saturday, April 
14th, at three o'clock. ^Irs. Margarett Kable Russell, 
President of the National Mary Baldwin Alumnae As- 
sociation will be present and will bring the latest news 
of the school, together with a report of the tremendous 
growth and enthusiasm which the alumnae all over the 
country have shown in the last year. Chapters of Mary 
Baldwin alumnae have recently been organized in Lynch- 
burg, Roanoke, Lexington, Harrisonburg, and Richmond, 
Va. ; Cumberland, Aid. ; Savannah, Ga. ; and Charlotte, 
N. C. These chapters have been the means of renewing 
many old friendships and promoting much social enjoy- 
ment and pleasure among Baldwin girls. 

Some of Philadelphia's most prominent and able wom- 
en, both in social and civic affairs, are numbered among 
Baldwin alumnae. Mrs. H. Prentiss Nichols of Mt. 
Airy, and Miss Anna Jarvis, founder of Alother's Day, 
have been particularly interested in having a chapter 
organized in the city. Mrs. H. G. AIcGary of Bala, 
Pa., has charge of arrangements for the tea and a 
cordial invitation is extended to every former Mary 
Baldwin girl to attend this delightful affair. 

A Letter 

April 5, 1928. 
^Nliss Eugenia Sproul, Treasurer, 

Staunton and Augusta County Chapter, 
M. B. S. Alumnae Association, 
Staunton, Virginia. 
My dear Miss Eugenia: 

I feel that your check for $1000.00 which your sister, 
Miss Harriett, handed me a few days ago, in full of a 
$2000.00 subscription made by your Chapter, deserves 
more recognition than a formal receipt, and "thank j^ou." 
This payment made two years in advance of maturity 
should prove an incentive and an inspiration to the many 
Chapters now being organized throughout the country. 
Just how it has been done is what puzzles me. A few 
more Chapters like this and the "W^illiam Wayt King 
Memorial Hall" is assured. 

I shall take pride in reporting the wonderful work of 
your Chapter to the next meeting of our Executive 
Committee. I believe the future greatness of Mary 
Baldwin College is in the hands of her loyal Alumnae. 
Ver>' sincerely yours, 

Wm. H. Landes, 
Treasurer of Mary Baldtciii College.

for eight years. 

" 'It is quite true my Indian blood has given me en- 
tree into homes that others could not have,' says Mrs. 
Conlan, 'and they have had faith in what I am trying to 
do. namely, the building of a true and worthy collection 
reflecting the early life of the state. One of the greatest 
thrills I ever had was when the state board of agricul- 
ture and the state departments planted 100 trees a few 
3'ears ago, each in honor of a citizen who had rendered 
outstanding service in the development and uplift of the 
state. I had the honor to be one of the five women thus 
honored, and the only Indian woman.' 

"Mrs. Conlan was educated in a private school for 
Indian girls and at the Mary Baldwin Seminary, Staun- 
ton, Va. Fond of travel, she has been abroad twice and

to the three Christian Endeavor societies, my Sunday 
School class, Girl Reserves and some of the many sick 
folks we have in Albuquerque. 

"We have in our church approximately 1000 members, 
about 150 of these being classed as 'Young People.' 
I have some work with the Junior Christian Endeavor 
Society, the Intermediate C. E. Society, the Senior C. 
E. Society and also the Girls Reserves. I am "exposed"

particular work on my part, but it does mean a two-

The Theatre" section of the Ava' York Times for 
November 13th, Sunday issue published an article about 
Anne Preston Bridgers (1910) which said; in reference 
to her play "Coquette" : 

"In the opinion of this reviewer, at least, nothing so 
complete and touching as 'Coquette' has crossed the 
boards for many seasons Perhaps one should be con- 
tent to admire it as an engrossing, tender story of love 
and bitter tragedy in the South, acted truthfully in 
every part. But what it indicates about the capacities 
of the theatre stirs the imagination excessively. 

"The basis of 'Coquette' is a script by Ann Preston 
Bridgers known heretofore in the theatrical world as 
the actress of a very small part in 'Broadway.' George 
Abbott, collaborating medicine-man extraordinary of 
'Broadway," 'Spread Eagle,' 'Four Walls,' and prac- 
tically anything else in town, has joined forces with 
Miss Bridgers as author and director. The producer is 
Jed Harris, who is conspicuous for his personal ap- 
pearances and also for putting on 'Broadway.' * * * * 
'Apparently these two men of the theatre have not im- 
posed their thumping technique upon Miss Bridgers' 
script, but they have modulated it to her fable: they 
have filled it out in complete sympathy with her mood. 
None of the tawdriness or garishness of 'Broadway' 
soils the diaphanous fabric of Miss Bridgers' dramatic 
ideas. Casting, acting, directing give it the magic of

usual cares of life that comes to a widow with children 
to rear alone. Lida Dunlap Edwards of New Orleans, 
La., is a very prominent Colonial Dame. I love to meet 
her down there. I am as proud of her as a Dame as 
I am of her as an "old girl." Elvira Richardson Shelley 
lives in New Orleans too and has reared a family that 
makes the world better for her having lived. Annie 
Meadows Taylor lives in Homer, La. Emma Lee 
Meadows, her sister was very gifted in languages and 
corresponded with Mr. Cochran whom she afterward 
married, in French the whole time she was in the 
Seminary. They now live in Dallas, Texas. Kate 
Murchison married a Mr. Pemberton and lives in Fay- 
etteville, N. C. Katy Anderson Ayres died in Knox- 


ville, Tennessee, a year ago. She was engaged to Brown 
Ayres while in the Seminary and the girls frequently 
accused her of ''putting on airs" and of being in a 
"brown study." They were both "true blue" in every 
sense of the word. He died while President of the 
Universit}' of Tennessee. 


We have had inquires from old girls who are try- 
ing to locate the following alumna; who were students 
during their schooldays. If you know their present 
name and address, w-on't you please send it in? 

Where is Margaret Greenless (1889-90)? 

Where is Irene Taylor (1890-91)? 


The following letter, carrying a picture of Elizabeth 
Brow'n Woods, has been sent out to all the organized 
chapters for distribution among their members. It is 
a cause that interests all alumnae, and to which we are 
sure you will most gladly contribute. 

Staunton, Va. 
^larch 1st, 1928. 
To : Alary Baldwin Alumnae Chapters, 
Members of the Association, and 
All Former A. F. S. and M. B. S. Students- 
Greetings : 

We are sending out to you our eighth annual appeal 
for contributions to maintain and endow our Missionary 
Scholarship, and approach you with confidence in your 
continued interest and appreciation of your past support. 

As we could not give the name of our beneficiary 
for 1928 in the letter sent you last March, we are today 
most happy to place on our first page not only her name 
but her picture. Elizabeth is the daughter of Bessie 
Smith Woods, a M. B. S. girl (1889-1891) and a mis- 
sionary in China. 

Our finances are in a very satisfactory condition. 
W^e have during the past year added to our Endowment 
Fund, and it now stands at $2,000 in interest bearing 
bonds. Two contributions of $50.00 each were sent us 
last year, others of $25.00 and $10.00, and one of Miss 
Baldwin's own girls has expressed her intention of 
remembering our scholarship in her will. We confident- 
ly believe that the newly aroused interest in our national 
organization will tend to make this the banner year of 
gifts to this fine endeavor of our Alumnae Association. 

We again repeat the setting up of this scholarship 
May 23rd, 1921 : 

"This scholarship is to be conferred each year upon 
the daughter of a missionary, preferably an alumna of 
the Seminary, serving on the Home or Foreign Mission 
Field, to carry with it full tuition, music, languages, and 
board, also necessary school expenses. Through the 
courtesy and liberality of the Board of Trustees, a 
concession of fifty per cent was made for this scholar- 
ship; even then to enable a girl to go comfortably and 

modestly through the full school term, the Alumnic 
Association deems the sum of $500.(X) necessary." 

Please send contributions promptly, filling out the 
enclosed blank, to Mrs. K. R. N. Stout, Treasurer, No. 
15 S. Coalter Street, Staunton, Virginia. 

Yours in the bonds of our Alma Mater, 


The Contribution Committee submits two amend- 
ments, which in accordance with Article X of our con- 
stitution, will be voted upon at the annual meeting of 
our Association in May. 

The duties of the Treasurer are growing steadily 
heavier and more complex, and the need of an As- 
sistant Treasurer is keenly felt. We suggest, there- 
fore that Article IV, Section 1, be amended, to read 
as follows : 

The officers of the Association shall be a President, 
First Vice-President, Second Vice-President, Corre- 
sponding Secretary, Recording Secretarj^, Treasurer, 
and Assistant Treasurer. They shall serve two years, 
or until their successors are duly elected. 

It is believed that, as more and more members in any 
chapter share the responsibility of the administrative 
work, their interest in the organization will be greatly 
increased. Therefore it is suggested that Article IX, 
Section 2, shall read : 

The officers of the Chapter shall be a Chairman, 
Secretary, and Treasurer. These are to be elected by 
the Chapter. Rotation in Office is advisable. 
Respectfully submitted, 
Nancy Witherspoon McFarland, 

Mrs. Mary Benham Mitchell Black, 
Bessie Wallace Landes, 
Mrs. Carlotta Kable Morriss, 
^Margaret AIcChesney.

If you were present last year at the Banquet and wit-

dream, of course, of missing it this year. If you were 
not here last year, a'ou certainly cannot afford to miss 
two in succession. 

This is what an old girl who came back to Alumnae 
Day last year w^rote : 

"We did have such a perfectly wonderful time at our 
dear Mary Baldwin commencement. I realize now that 
every year away makes it that much dearer, and any 


time that you return and find the very same school you 
entered on your first arri\al there, it gives you the feel- 
ing of going back home. Of course every year brings 
its changes in little ways but on the whole it's our own 
Mary Baldwin and our Miss Higgins is there to wel- 
come us. I want to thank you for a very lovely visit. 

"It was a great pleasure and privilege to meet old 
Mary Baldwin girls who were there long before we 
were and some of them before we were born. They 
made us grasp some of the ideas of the enthusiasm of 

the Alumnae Associations all over the country and I 
think it is marvelous. If the Association could only 
reach every girl who ever went to Mary Baldwin the 
possibilities would be unlimited. We will all have to 
work toward that end and come as close to it as pos-

"Eternal Summer Gilds Them Yet." — Byron 


One of the most delightful and enthusiastic 
Alumufe Days celebrated in the historj- of 
]\Iary Baldwin was held Alonday at the college. 
The annual business meeting of the Alumnae 
Association was held at 10 a. m., in the Girls 
Parlor, the President, Airs. Margarett Kable 
Russell, presiding. The meeting was opened 
with a prayer by Airs. Emma Plecker Cassell. 

Since the minutes of the last meeting had 
been published in full in the July News Letter 
there was a motion that the reading of the 
minutes be dispensed with. The motion was 

The President gave the following report 
which was recei\ cd with much enthusiasm. 


The old adage "Blessed is that nation which 
has no history" would not be a suitable ambi- 
tion for an alumnae association, and it is there- 
fore with a great deal of gratitude that I sub- 
mit the following report of the Alary Baldwin 
AlumnEC Association for the year ending Alay, 

Just as the inception of our ambitious plans 
for the Alumnae Association was dependent on 
the gifts of the College Board, so the continu- 
ation of any extension work is equally con- 
tingent upon their continued good will and sup- 
port. While the increased revenue from the 
enlarged membership has greatly helped to 
meet the expense of our organization it would 
be, entirely inadequate were it not for the 
su!>stantial co-operation of the College Board. 
Last October at the regular meeting of the Col- 
lege Board your President was asked to make a 
full report of the activities of the Association 
to date. This was done and too much cannot be 
said of the most courteous and cordial reception 
accorded our efiforts, the Board, I believe, fully 
realizing the constructive ideal for the College 
which the alumnae have ever in mind. At this 
meeting $1,200 was voted the Association and 
all policies involving expenditures of any con- 
siderable amount have been made with the full 
approval of your own Alumnae Board. This 
tends to distinct growth in association spirit, 
the iact that we have an aknnnre Executive 
Board which meets three or four times a year 
and is really active in shaping the policies and 
sharing the responsiljilties of all alumnae un- 
dertakings. In addition to this Board function- 
ing regularly I count it a great asset that we 
number so many willing and efficient voluntary 
workers in the Association. Their help can- 
not be over estimated and the enthusiasm pro- 
duced by their voluntary efforts cannot but 
spread and fire other enthusiasm. This is evi- 
denced particularly I believe wherever the 
girls are called on to assist with the mechani- 
cal i)art of alumnae work, which after all is 
necessary before spiritual ends can be attain- 
ed. Such unselfish effort is being made by the 
Staunton alumna', not only in their remark- 
able achievements as a chapter but as indi- 

viduals that I cannot but pause to mention 
those things which touch on the National work. 
It is to this spirit we are indebted for our 
success with the Birthday Greetings — an enor- 
mous amount o\ detail work, that of filing 
all birthdays and mailing out the greetings at 
the jjroper time, with additions and changes 
in the list constantly being made. Miss Doro- 
thy Ilisey has succeeded Mary Mitchell Black 
as Chairman of this work, and is eminently 
efficient, performing this office with no other 

Then without this volunteer service it would 
be almost impossible to .send you the News 
Letters, for after they are printed you can 
imagine the task of addressing nearly four 
thousand envelopes, putting that many pamph- 
lets into them, and getting them into the post- 
office promptl}'. There is always a group of 
girls however, who can be relied on for this — 
I wish I could name all the workers personally. 
The detail arrangements for October 4th and 
y\lumnae Day must necessarily fall heavily on 
the Staunton alumn;e and because of their 
location they must ever render this liason serv- 
ice for the rest of the Association. The Na- 
tional alumnte call on these girls the third time 
during the year to act as their agents in con- 
ducting the Christmas Bazaar which we are 
striving to develop into a truly National effort 
on the part of the Association. The steady 
growth of the Staunton Chapter proves not 
only the axiom that "Love begets service" but 
its converse truth as well, "Service begets love" 
and it is the growth of this spirit of love, and 
the vision of service to our Alma Mater that 
seems to me most essential in all our many 
alumna? needs today. 

In sounding this note of a])preciation to our 
Staunton alumna* T w-ould not be less emphatic 
in calling to your attention the remarkable re- 
sults which our Baldwin girls all over the 
country have achieved without the local in- 
centive, often in spite of most serious handi- 
caps, such as long distance, a scattered group, 
ill health, lack of enthusiasm, loss of contact 
with the school, and the many duties and 
obligations which crowd the life of modern 
women. It is those girls who have accomp- 
lished great things in spite of these drawbacks 
whom I particularly wish to thank today. We 
have as a result of their loyalty and enthusiasm 
the concrete evidence of their efforts in the 
establishment of seven new chapters since we 
last met together. 

Eva Bowe Stern stirred by her insight into 
the need for alumnae work which she had gain- 
ed from the October 4th meeting went back to 
Richmond with the firm determination of crys- 
talizing the alumnae spirit in that city, and in 
November succeeded in establishing a chapter 
there. We felt this might well be a good omen 
for our year's work, w'ith Richmond capitulat- 
ing before alumnae enthusiasm, and that the 
rest of our southern groups would soon follow. 
Richmond is here today five strong to speak 

for herself, and wc welcome her representa- 
tives with open arms. 

With the co-operation of Laura Wise 
Dechert a chapter was organized in Harrison- 
burg in January, which under the able leader- 
ship of Mrs. Frances Overlock Earman has 
alreadj' proven that it needed only a start to 
make it a remarkably active and successful 

Our neighboring city of Lexington followed, 
after Nettie Smith and Kate Hoge Davidson 
had invited the Rockbridge girls to meet with 
them for tea ; and a Lexington Chapter was 
duly established with Miss Agnes Penick, 
Chairman. We feel that the benefit of having 
two such nearby helpmeets cannot be over 

For some time through the loyalty and ef- 
forts of an old Staunton girl, Anne Cochran 
Doub, the Cumberland, Md. girls have been 
interested and had met as a group in a social 
way. However, in January they were enter- 
tained again at a beautiful luncheon at the 
Algonquin Hotel by Mrs. Frances Danby Wil- 
liams and a fully organized chapter begun, with 
Airs. Doub as Chairman. 

In extending our alumnae boundaries, our 
policy has been to concentrate wherever there 
is a group of girls sufficiently interested to see 
the desirability of an alumnae chapter in their 
vicinity, and scarcely any localities in the south 
can boast more old Baldwin girls than Char- 
lotte, N. C. and Savanah, Ga. With the co-op- 
eration of Helenora Withers a Charlotte 
Chapter was established in March, the group 
meeting at Hotel Charlotte and electing Miss 
Alice Buchanan, Chairman, who, I am sure, 
wall lead it far to success. 

In Savannah our temporary chairman, Mrs. 
Lucille Gorin Hughes, had moved out of the 
city but continued to give us great assistance, 
and with her help and that of Mary Coney 
Van Wagenen and Julia Coney Highsmith, a 
group met at the Hotel De Soto which resulted 
in the organization of a Savannah Chapter, 
Julia Coney Highsmith being elected Chairman. 

A former Staunton girl, Mabel Mish Mc- 
pary, undertook to interest the alumnae liv- 
ing in and around Philadelphia and after a 
preliminary meeting at her home, a most en- 
thusiastic chapter was organized at the Hotel 
Ritz last month. The geographical situation 
and large number of this group have pos- 
sibilities of tremendous influence in our 
alumnae organization. Miss Lillian Kraus was 
chosen Chairman. 

You will note that we have more than doubl- 
ed last years record in organization, since we 
have added seven new chapters to our list, 
against the three gained in the previous twelve 
months. We now number fifteen chapters in 
all, with a total membership which in the past 
two years has increased from 425 to over 1023, 
representing 42 states 

The contacts actually made and maintained 
by the Birthday Greetings are about 1200. 

Acknowledgments of this character are com- 
mon ; "How tenderly glad you made my sixty- 
seventh birthday with your exquisite reminder 
of our Alma Mater claiming me as her own. 
What memories too the beautiful poem awak- 
ens ! I don't know when anything has appealed 
lo me as this greeting from our Alma Mater. 
1 am sure you are making many tired hearts 
glad ! I thank you ;" 

And this — "I received my birthday greeting 
and really did not know that I could be so 
glad to be remembered by Mary Baldwin. I 
thought it was lovely and I am planning to 
have it framed, for the sentiment is so at- 

Thirty-seven hundred (3700) News Letters 
are actually mailed three times a year, as you 
know, reaching approximately that many girls, 
l^ndoubtedly this is doing much in building up 
interest and renewing old contacts among the 
students as well as spreading current informa- 
tion about the college. Many girls write us 
they "drop everything when the News Letter 
arrives" to glean the latest news from Mary 

In addition to this regular work which is 
being done, there were sixteen hundred and 
sixty-one (1661) personal letters written in the 
last two vears besides ten hundred and eighty- 
five (1085) invitations and form letters sent 
out. We feel that many girls have thus been 
stimulated to return to the school whenever an 
opportunity was presented and that many went 
out of their way to visit it again, who other- 
wise might have been indifferent. Many alum- 
nae distinguished in various vocations in life, 
have renewed their interest in the school and 
are in closer touch with its policies and ac- 
tivities, thus emphasizing the need and success 
of our semi-annual reunions, October 4th and 
Alumnae Day, two dates by which we hope to 
deveolp an alumnae spirit second to that of no 
college in America. 

The Alumnae Office is functioning regularly 
and is in charge of two most efficient alumnae, 
Dorothy Morriss Fauver and Dorothy Curry, 
who are not only conscientous and able in the 
performance of their duties, but alert to the 
needs of the Association and far seeing in their 
vision for its future. In addition to the routine 
work they are at present revising the files — 
according to the constant new information 
being received and endeavoring to make that 
information available for any possible use. The 
proposed Directory is being kept in mind for 
which we have already one hundred and fifty- 
three (153) advance orders in hand. They are, 
as you know, to be sold for one _dollar_ ($1 ) 
a piece and when sufficient data is available, 
it will be published. This in itself is such a 
monumental task it must necessarily be given 
considerable time for satisfactory accomplish- 
ment. In connection with the Alumnae Office 
our report would not be complete should we 
fail to mention the remarkable service con- 
tinually given by Miss Fannie Strauss who is 

constant "in season and out of season." It is 
largely with her help we manage to straighten 
out the ditificult tangles which we have in- 
herited from the old Campaign lists and the in- 
complete or incorrect information with which 
we have to deal. 

Effort has been made to keep in touch with 
the students graduating from the school. A 
short talk was made to the student body pre- 
senting the need and aims of alumuje work 
and inviting those leaving the institution to 
become members of the Association. The 
Senior and Junior College classes were recent- 
ly entertained at my home, as were the Mary 
Baldwin Granddaughters the first week af- 
ter their arrival last fall. These Grand- 
daughters were also our guests at the Oc- 
tober 4th luncheon. The News Letters, 
in addition, have printed excerpts from 
Campus Comments and every effort is made to 
have the students feel that the Alumnae As- 
sociation considers itself a "big sister" to every 
girl at Alarv Baldwin. 

I_ will not touch upon the splendid work 
which is being steadily carried on by our Mis- 
sionary Scholarship Committee and that of the 
Alumnae Scholarship. Their reports will be 
submitted in detail, but I bespeak for these 
committees your continued and hearty support 
in the future, as no phase of alumnae effort 
has more far reaching results than the educa- 
tion of these Daughters of Mary Baldwin. 

I throughout the year your President has 
made personal calls on visiting alumnae when 
notified of their presence in the cit}'. She has 
been present at the organization of the chap- 
ters in Richmond, Cumberland, Harrisonburg, 
Lexington, Charlotte, Savannah, and Phila- 
delphia, and has met with those of Atlanta, 
Washington, and Lower Valley during the past 
twelve months, making ten visits in all to 

In closing this report, may I express my 
very sincere appreciation of the loyalty ex- 
hibited and the many personal courtesies which 
have been accorded me because I was your 

The splendid co-operation of the College 
authorities, particularly Dr. Fraser, Miss Hig- 
gins, and Mr. King, as well as the College 
Board, have all done much to further our 
aims and make the work a success — while as 
individuals they have been ever ready with 
their help and encouragement. 

My plea for the future is that we press 
steadily on to greater achievement till every 
]\rary Baldwin girl becomes interested in and 
a member of the Alumnae Association, through 
which, all working together, we may attain 
that tremendous but not impossible goal — the 
acceptance of Mary Baldwin College as an 
A-1 Standard Institution by the National Edu- 
cational Association, with its degree recognized 
by all as the equal of any in the land. May 
we hold up the hands of our Alma Mater so 
that she may continue to send forth the finest 

type of cultured Christian womanhood — for 
which she has always been outstanding. To 
do this let us remember wc cannot sit idly 
by and let other institutions, their alumn<-c by 
their sides, pass us in the march of progress. 

The time has come, I believe, for us tc 
realize our obligations and our privileges, to 
see to it that our girls are reached, are inter- 
ested, are touched by the vital need of such a 
College as Mary Baldwin. We are ready, I 
submit, for the work of a full time Alumnae 
Secretary through which this may be accomp- 
lished. It is to this work I commend your at- 
tention during the immediate future. I thank 
you from my heart for your cordial support 
during the past two years. The work that has 
been accomplished in that time is yours. What 
will you do with it? 

Respectfully submitted,

(A Tribute) 

February 24, 1876 a little girl was born in 
the home of Edw^in AI. and Alartha Barry 
Brown in Augusta County. That little girl 
grew to be the gentle woman whom we all 
knew and loved so dearly as Airs. Charles S. 
Hunter. When Airs. Hunter was a child of 
four or five years of age. Air. and Mrs. Brown 
left Augusta County and moved to Fort Val- 
ley, Georgia, where Air. Brown practised law 
until the time of his death a few years later. 
We can see this Virginia child growing into 
charming young womanhood in her southern 
home and then true to the traditions followed 
by manj^ families who left A'irginia to live else- 
where, she was sent back to Augusta Female 
Seminar}^, now Alary Baldwin College, to be 
educated. Alany of her relatives and friends 
recall her bright joj'ous nature and happy 
school days spent in Staunton. The school 
records show that amongst other subjects 
studied and mastered, the stud}^ of Voice was 

After leaving school she remained in Georgia 
a brief time as she became the bride of Air. 
Charles S. Hunter, January 6, 1897 and re- 
turned to Staunton to take her place in the 
home, in the church and in the community. 
Two children came to the home, the oldest 
Charles S. Hunter Junior, now a young busi- 
ness man in Staunton, and a second son who 
died in infancy. 

Airs. Hunter's interest in her church, in her 
school, in all civic or social organizations was 
marked, but to those whose well being was 
dependent upon her in her home she was pre- 
eminently lovely and self-sacrificing. She was 
endowed with a nature of deep spirituality and 
a rare apreciation of the beautiful in all things, 
but particularly so in her love for music. Her 
own gift of song she freely gave in the service 
of others. For many years she held a promi- 
nent place in the choir of the First Presby- 
terian Church of which she was long a mem- 
ber. Her voice was often heard in the house 
of mourning. 

To meet Airs. Hunter on the street and re- 
ceive her cheery greeting made the sunshine 
just a little brighter for the day; to enter her 
home and partake of her gracious hospitality, 
made you feel that her happiness had been in- 
complete until you came, but to be allowed to 
pass throup'h the inner gate and to be called 
friend was to know one whose sympathetic 
understanding was a sacred gift and a privi- 
lege alike in joy and sorrow. She always 

Lovely in person, gracious in manner, radi- 
ant in spirit, youth and vivacity lingered with 
her until she was called to the "great beyond" 
on the winter evening of December 23, 1927. 
The Christmas day following will long be re- 
membered in Staunton as one of gloom and 
distress for on that day all that was earthly 
of Olive Brown Hunter was carried to peace- 
ful Thornrose and her devoted family and 
many friends and relatives paid tribute to her 

Across the path of those whose happy living 
was dependent upon her life a shadow long and 
dark has fallen, but this is a realm too sacred 
for even her most loving friends to enter. The 
world is better because she has lived.

The following reports were given by the 
Chairman and Treasurer of the Alissionary 
Scholarship Committee. 


Your committee again brings to you a re- 
port that sounds high C in alt. Our bene- 
ficiary for the past session, Elizabeth Woods, 
has proven herself in this her Sophomore yediT, 
as student, and in the school life everything 
that we could ask ; the Committee has therefore 
re-appointed her for the College term of 1928- 
29 with the expectation that she will be in two 
more years one of the candidates for the de- 
gree of Bachelor of Arts. In accepting this 
re-appointment Elizabeth expresses thanks for 
the scholarship and what it has meant to her 
in the past year, with the hope always to be 
worthy of the trust placed in her. _ The treas- 
urer's report shows the stable condition of our 
treasury and we now express our sincere 
thanks to all those who have contributed the 
past year to this scholarship fund. 

Elizabeth Bell Ricketts, the first chairman of 
this Committee has tendered her resignation 
as a member because of the fact that it is now- 
impossible to attend the meetings, but her in- 
terest is unabated. We desire to place on 
record our appreciation of her capable leader- 
ship in the early days of our work which went 
far in permanently establishing this branch of 
the Alumnas Association work.

It was moved and seconded that a message 
of sympathy be sent Mrs. Howison and Mrs. 
Christian, who were absent because of illness. 

A report of the Alumnae Scholarship Com- 
mittee was then given. 


Your Committee is glad to report that the 
beneficiary of this scholarship, Leola Brown, 
Churchville, Va., Augusta County, has in this, 
her Junior year, done excellent work, and we 
have therefore re-appointed her for the Col- 
lege term of 1928-29. She will be a member of 
the Senior Class with the expectation of taking 
her A. B. degree at the 1929 Finals. 

A letter of thanks and sincere appreciation 
was received from the beneficiary for her re-

Short reports were made by Miss Dorothy 
Hisey, Chairman of the Birthday Cards, and 
Miss Strauss, Chairman of the Publication 
Committee. It was moved that a word of 
special appreciation be given to those in charge 
of the News Letters and to Aliss Hisey. 

The report of the Constitution Committee 
was read and certain changes in the tentative 
Constitution were presented. The changes were 
as follows. 


The duties of the Treasurer are growing 
steadily heavier and more complex, and the 
need of an Assistant Treasurer is keenly felt. 
We suggest, therefore that Article IV, Section 
1, be amended, to read as follows : 

The officers of the Association shall be a 
President, First Vice-President, Second Vice- 
President, Corresponding Secretary, Recording 
Secretary, Treasurer, and Assistant Treasurer. 
They shall serve two years, or until their suc- 
cessors are duly elected. 

It is believed that, as more and more mem- 
bers in any chapter share the responsibility of 
the administrative work, their interest in the 
organization will be greatly increased. There- 
fore it is suggested that Article IX, Section 2, 
shall read : 

The officers of the Chapter shall be a Chair- 
man, Secretary, and Treasurer. These are to 
be elected by the Chapter. Rotation in office is

The following reports were given from the 
organized chapters, 


The Atlanta Chapter closed its most active 
year May 21st, having to its credit four meet- 
ings, three teas, a get-together for our beloved 
College President, Dr. Fraser, and the very 
great distinction of being guests of Mrs. Rus- 
sell at a most enjoj'able and informing tea at 
the Biltmore. Mrs. J. T. Stephenson and Anna 
Harriet Shewmake entertained at lovely teas 
after very busy sessions of the Chapter when 
routine business was transacted. A local 
treasury was voted upon and carried. 

The definite work which the Atlanta Chapter 
expects to do is the endowment of a room in 
memory of ^liss Charlotte Kemper to be used 
by the beneficiarj' of our Missionary Scholar- 
ship. This work will be begun as soon as the 
plans for the new College are under way. One 
new member, Jessica Wright from Louisville, 
Ga. was welcomed, she being our only life 
membership representative. 

Our greatly beloved Secretary, Venice May- 
son, married on May 10. The chapter gave her 
an elaborate and beautifully appointed lunch- 
eon at the Woman's club. As she leaves At- 
lanta for residence in the Philippines the chap- 
ter feels a great loss. 

^Irs. Russell's tea at the Biltmore was a 
most happy occasion assembling a number of 
old girls, all of whom were profoundly im- 
pressed with the President of the Alumnae As- 
sociation and expressed great admiration for, 
and appreciation of, the great work she is 

W'e deeply regret that our Chapter will not 
be represented at the Annual fleeting by an 
active member but we are grateful that Jessica 
Wright will be present. We send greetings and 
best wishes to all Marj^ Baldwin Chapters and 
all those attending the Annual Meeting. We 
sincerel}' trust Mrs. Russell will be reappoint- 
ed President of the Alumnae Association. Her 
regime has been outstandingly successful and 
we feel the Association would sustain a great 
blow if she failed to accept the post again. 
Respectfully submitted, 
Elizabeth Hanger Chalenor. 


We are most truly sorry to report that the 
local chapter here will have no representative 
at the Association at Mary Baldwin College 
Monday. It has been impossible to have any 
kind of "get together" since our formation of 
a chapter. We will try our very best to have 
a meeting, maybe in the nature of a luncheon. 
We will report this to j-ou after it takes place. 

Let us again thank you, Mrs. Russell, for 
your interest shown in uniting a chapter in this 
vicinity. We are sure if we really ever get 
together something will be accomplished, the 
purpose of which is to aid the college in secur- 

ing the allotted amount of money wanted in 
connection with the plans for the new college. 
We regret to hear of the illness of Dean 
Higgins. Please advise us as to her condition, 
as all the girls here are much interested and 
hope for a very speedy recovery. 

We doubt very much whether anything can 
be done before fall, as you know the various 
girls here have made their plans for the sum- 
mer months. We will have Miss Hereford, 
treasurer, reach each old Mary Baldwin Col- 
lege girl by a visit, or over the 'phone, to try 
to get them to join the national association. 
We will also have her secure back dues. 

Hoping your Alumnae Daj^ will be a suc- 
cess from a business as well as a social stand- 
point, we are,

In June, 1926 the Cumberland girls w^ho had 
attended Mary Baldwin Seminary and College 
were invited to Mrs. Albert Doub's, to meet 
Aliss Margaret Daniel who at that time was 
representing the Financial Campaign. There 
were twelve of us present and after Miss 
Daniel's splendid talk on the present and fu- 
ture of Alary Baldwin we, alumnae, were very 
much interested and intent on helping our Alma 
Mater as much as possible. 

The following spring of 1927 Mrs. Doub 
again invited us to have lunch with her at the 
Algonquin Hotel. Twelve girls were there and 
all pledged "our bit" to help build the new Col- 

Though we had met in this social way, a 
fully organized chapter w^as not formed until 
our last meeting in Januarj', 1928, when Mrs. 
Paul Williams entertained at a delightful 
luncheon at the Algonquin Hotel. The officers 
elected were ]Mrs. Albert Doub, Chairman, 
Mrs. Paul Williams, Vice-Chairman, and Mrs. 
Douglas Bowie, Secretary-Treasurer. Vve w^ere 
very fortunate in having }vlrs. Alargarett 
Kable Russell as our honor guest. We 
enjoyed and were benefitted very much by 
Airs. Russell's splendid message to us, not 
without realizing our responsibilitj' toward a 
successful College. Having four members 
from out of town made this our happiest meet- 
ing. Now that we have sixteen interested mem- 
bers we feel that we are helping a little to 
further the cause of Mary Baldwin College. 
Respectfully submitted. 

Helen Benson Bowie, 
Secretary-Treasurer, Cumberland Chapter. 


The first act of the Harrisonburg Chapter 
of interest to the Association and other chap- 
ters was the sending of "Congratulations and 

greetings" to Mr. King, whose birthday, Febru- 
ary 2, marks the birthday of the Harrison- 
burg Chapter. 

On the afternoon of February 20th, a rneet- 
ing of the officers and several members of the 
Chapter was held at the home of our Chair- 
man, Mrs. D. W. Earman, at which time the 
Constitution was read, attention being called to 
article 9. 

A benefit party to be given sometime in 
April was discussed, the plans to be worked 
out later. Tea was served later by Mrs. Ear- 
man and after a delightful chat about life at 
Mary Baldwin, the meeting was closed. 

On April 10th, Mrs. Earman visited the 
towns of 'Mt Jackson, Woodstock and Stras- 
burg and added six new members to the roll. 

Committee meetings were called on April 
13th and 19th, at which time plans were formu- 
lated for a benefit bridge party to be given at 
the Spotswood Country Club, April 24th. This 
plan was carried out. The Club house was 
decorated with apple blossoms, jonquils and 
Mary Baldwin banners. The school colors of 
white and yellow were effectively used in the 
tally cards, table markers, etc. There were 
more than forty tables. The Valley towns 
represented were Strasburg, Alt. Jackson, 
Staunton, Elkton, and Woodstock. Fifty dol- 
lars was realized.

Secretary-Treasurer, Harrisonburg Chapter. 


The Knoxville Chapter of the Mary Bald- 
win Alumnae Association met Friday afternoon, 
May 25, 1928 at the home of the Chairman 
(Ina Ast Paine\ There were only four mem- 
bers present and one visitor. Miss Margaret 
Thomas, whose mother was an old Baldwin 
girl. Mrs. Minnie Bell Prather, who has just 
returned from a visit to Staunton told us the 
deep interest and inspiration that seemed to 
be felt by every one she met in Staunton and 
Augusta County, in regard to the work the 
Alumnat Association is doing. The Knoxville 
Chapter has need of some of this insipration 
if we expect to continue to hold the mem- 
bers together. It is our desire that we have 
a luncheon on October next to commemorate 
Miss Baldwin's birthday at which time, we sin- 
cerely trust we may have the honor of Airs. 
Russell's presence. 

As we had so few present at our meeting 
I was asked to hold the Chapter together for 
inother year. After a lengthy discussion, dues 
were paid and tea served, and the meeting was 
brought to a close. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Ina Ast Paine, 



The Rockbridge Chapter of the Mary Bald- 
win Alumnae Association originated at the 
gathering of a number of old girls in one of 
the girl's homes in Lexington in February of 
this year. At this first meeting we were fortu- 
nate in having four representatives of the 
Staunton Chapter, which gave special interest 
and zest to our meeting. 

The Rockbridge Chapter is, therefore, in its 
infancy. However, our enterprising President, 
Aliss Agnes Penick, has secured the names of 
seventeen former alumnae who have joined the 
local chapter. We hope to keep in close touch 
with Alary Baldwin College and do what we 
can to promote its welfare. 

Nettie Smith, 
Secretary, Rockbridge Chapter. 


Since last Alumnee Day, The Lower Valley 
Chapter has held two meetings, September 28, 
1927 and Alay 19, 1928. There are now fifteen 
members from Alartinsburg, Winchester, 
Charles Town, Ranson, Leesburg, Shepherds- 
town, and Shenandoah Junction. Our original 
membership was thirteen. Virginia Silver from 
Winchester joined us last September, and Elsie 
Gray Hume this year. We are proud that we 
have added a member at each meeting. The 
meeting last September was a luncheon at the 
Green Parrot Tea Room, at Martinsburg. Ten 
members were present and three visitors, our 
President, Airs. Alargarett Russell and Airs. 
Taylor. Both of them made very interesting 
and instructive talks on the Alumnae Associa- 
tion, its present work and future aims. 

It was impossible for me to attend the Alay 
meeting, but Airs. Snodgrass has kindly written 
this report: "The spring business meeting of 
the Lower Valley Chapter met at Ranson, W. 
Va., really a part of Charles Town, on Alay 
19th, at the home of Audrey Blackford Higgs, 
with nine members present. After a friendly 
discussion of our relationship, past, present and 
future, to our Alma Alater, the President told 
of the plans for Alumnae Day and urged as 
many as possible to attend. One new member, 
Elsie Gray Hume of Leesburg was welcomed 
to our midst. These young Alumnae are of 
incalculable benefit to the older ones, giving a 
fresh out look and vivid idea of the life and 
work at Alary Baldwin now. Election of offi- 
cers resulted in the following being elected. 
Mrs. Keightley Timberlake Wilson, Chair- 
man, Airs. Audrey Blackford Higgs, Secretary- 
Treasurer. Upon urgent invitation of Aliss 
Virginia Lucas, who was unable to be present, 
the entire Chapter drove to her beautiful home 
"Rion Hall," perched on a high hill overlook- 
ing the Shenandoah. To some of us, this was 
a unique re-union, after many years and while 
we enjoyed her charming hospitality, our 
minds were full of girl-hood memories. 

The date and place f'-r the Fall meeting was 


left undecided. The new tea room, "Cabe 
Cabin" on the Charles Town-Berryville road 
was favored, but the decision will be announc- 
ed later. Several of the Chapter will go to the 
Alumn;e festivities, May 28th."

Although the New York Chapter is planning 
to have a meeting toward the end of October 
this year, we do not as a rule have any meet- 
ings in the fall on account of so many of the 
members returning home late, so we did not 
have any meetings last fall. Notices were sent 
out, as usual, about the Christmas Bazaar to 
be held at the College. 

A Business meeting was held on February 
28, 1928 at the home of Mrs. Margaret Cun- 
ningham Craig, 555 Park Avenue, New York 
City (an account of which appeared in the 
April issue of the News Letter) and it was 
proposed to have a luncheon if sufficient mem- 
bers could be interested. Letters were sent to 
all the members and there was a very interest- 
ing response ; so a beautiful luncheon was 
served at the Barbizon Club, in a most attrac- 
tive room which had been secured by one of 
our members. Miss Mary Turk. Twenty-five 
persons were present, including a few guests. 
Three new members joined the chapter at the 
luncheon, and we had already gained three 
others during the year. We have lost two 
members by resignation, but one of them, Mrs. 
Alabel Mish McGary resigned to form a new 
chapter in Philadelphia. Mrs. Montgomery 
could not be present at the Luncheon, but all 
our former Chairmen with that exception were 
present; Mrs. Felter, Mrs. Craig, and Mrs. 
Blake, all of whom were a great encourage- 
ment to the new Chairman, Mrs. Bessie Osborn 
Scudder. The New York Chapter gets a bit 
discouraged at times on account of our scat- 
tered membership and the difficulty we have in 
getting together, but there are so many who 
have been so loyal for such a long time that 
they always seem to make the way possible, and 
if the spirit of these noble women, so true to 
the ideals of Mary Baldwin can be perpetuated, 
we need have no anxiety for the future of the 
New York Chapter. 

With cordial greetings from the New York 
Chapter, and all good wishes for a glorious

The Philadelphia Chapter of the Mary Bald- 
win Alumnse Association, held it's first meet- 
ing at the home of Airs. H. G. McGary, on 
March 17, 1928 at which time nine girls were 
present. It is because of the efforts of Mrs. 

McGary that the Philadelphia Chapter has been 

The second meeting was a tea at the Ritz- 
Carlton Hotel, Philadelphia. Mrs. Margarett 
Kable Russell, our National President came 
all the way from Staunton to get our Chapter 
organized and presided at this second meeting. 
Mrs. Russell made a charming address, which 
everyone thoroughly enjoyed. There were 
twelve girls at this meeting. The following 
officers were then elected ; Miss Lillian Kraus, 
Chairman ; Mrs. Mabel Mish McGarv, and 
Miss Evelyn Carhart, Vice-Chairmen ; Mrs. 
Elise Corman Young, Treasurer; and Miss 
Miriam H. Palmer, Secretary. 

There has only been one Executive Meeting, 
at which time our Chapter Constitution and 
By-Laws were discussed and drawn up. The 
Executive Board decided that there should be 
an Advisory Board of four ; the following 
persons were appointed ; Mrs. H. Prentiss 
Nichols, Miss Anna Jarvis, Mrs. H. G. Mc- 
Gary and Miss Evelyn Carhart. 

After our next meeting, which will take 
place in the next two weeks, our activities 
will be renewed in the fall, at which time it is 
hoped that we will make great strides toward 
a strong, large Chapter. 

Yours for greater success in our work.

From Richmond, the Capital of Virginia, our 
seven months old Chapter, young in experience 
but bearing in its heart always an enduring af- 
fection and esteem for its Alma Mater, sends 
our mother Association and our sister Chap- 
ters, Greetings ! 

To Mrs. Margarett Kable Russell, President 
of the Association and to Mrs. Eva Bowe 
Stern, this Chapter owes its very existence; 
for the organization meeting on October 21, 
1927 was the result of their wise planning and 
untiring efforts. 

Seventeen former Mary Baldwin students 
met on that date at Mrs. Stern's charming resi- 
dence and after hearing from Mrs. Russell an 
inspiring description of the Association's plans 
and activities, unanimously voted the forma- 
tion of the Richmond Chapter, constituting 
theinselves as Charter members. 

At once the chapter went into executive ses- 
sion and the following officers were elected: 

Mrs. Eva Bowe Stern, President. 

Mrs. Maria Abert Gary, Vice-President. 

Mrs. Grace Lee Randolph, Secretary. 

Mrs. Mary Buckner Ragland, Treasurer. 

On November 2, 1927 the second meeting was 
held at the home of Mrs. Stern and an Execu- 
tive Committee was elected, consisting of : Mrs. 
Chas. A. Dempsey, Mrs. O. B. Hill, Mrs. Crox- 
ton Gordon, Mrs. Theron Rice, Mrs. George 
Sprinkel, together with the four officers of the 
Chapter. A committee appointed by Mrs. Stern 

consisting of : Mrs. Harris Hart, Mrs. George 
Sprinkel, Mrs. Lucius Gary, and Mrs. John 
Randolph, presented in due course Gonstitu- 
tion and By-Laws to govern the Ghapter, 
which were unanimously adopted and are at- 
tached to this report. 

Under the wise direction of the Executive 
Gommittee the Richmond Ghapter has been 
singularly successful in its early activities. 

On January 19, 1928 a luncheon at the Goun- 
try Glub of Virginia was far more than a 
charming social affair. Its guests of honor, 
Mrs. Russell, and Mr. W. Wayt King, made it 
an event long to be remembered, and their in- 
formal talks made us very proud of our Alma 
Mater and the work of the Alumnae Associa- 

Participation in the Ghristmas Sale in Staun- 
ton was more of a pleasure than a duty and 
members of the Ghapter derived real satisfac- 
tion from getting off a box to assist in its 

Efforts to increase the size and strength of 
the Ghapter met with popular reception and it 
is a pleasure to report that within the seven 
months since its organization the chapter has 
doubled its membership and now has thirty- 
two names on its roll. 

This success in Richmond has led us to ex- 
tend our plans to include the Alumnae who live 
in Petersburg and other near by points, and 
efforts to that end are now in force. 

At each meeting and in every activity the 
representation of this chapter at your Annual 
Alumnae Association meeting in May has been 
planned and looked forward to. Be assured 
that the hearts and thoughts of those who 
found it impossible to be here today are with 

Briefly our financial report shows to date ; 

Income $121.00 

Expenditures 116.75 

Balance in Treas $ 4.25 

A more detailed report has been prepared by 
the Treasurer, Mrs. Ragland, and is attached 
to this report. 

In conclusion permit this young Richmond 
Chapter to express its appreciation to you for 
the honor of affiliation in your Association; 
for the cordial welcome you have extended it ; 
and for the inspiration and wise guidance so 
unselfishly and untiringly rendered by your 
President. It is this Chapter's heart-felt hope 
that the future will offer opportunity for it to 
more fittingly express this appreciation in ac- 
tivi'ty that will in some measure further the 
effort of Mary Baldwin in the development of 
fine womanhood. 

Grace Lee Randolph, 


I am sorry that this report has been so de- 
layed but we have so little to report. This 

year we have no one to read this for us and 
so we will appreciate it very much if someone 
else will read it. 

We have found forty-two old Mary Baldwin 
girls living in Roanoke and Salem. Twenty 
are members of the Association. 

It has been rather difficult to create interest 
among the older members. However we are 
hoping to enroll every Mary Baldwin girl in 
this district by next year. 

We have made $105.50 this year and are wait- 
ing to send it over. This will be sent as soon 
as we hear from the Treasurer. 

Thanking you for your interest and hoping 
this year's meeting will prove a great success, 
I am 


Katherixe Huff. 
Secretary Roanoke Chapter. 


We are indeed very sorry that we have no 
definite report to send at this time. We did 
enjoy Mrs. Russell's visit to Savannah very 
much when she was so kind as to help us 
organize — and we have been struggling ever 
since. As you know our officers are — 

Chairman, Mrs. Julia Coney Highsmith. 

Vice-Chairman, ^^rs. Mary Bond Johnson. 

Treasurer, Miss Ruth Rankin. 

Secretary, Mrs. MiWred Glover Wells, Jr. 

We have been canvassing several times for 
members and are planning to have a big party 
in the near future, at the Hotel De Soto. Of 
course we will make lots of money on that and 
will send it in to you as soon as our dreams 
come true. 

Our chapter is very young but as all young 
things, very hopeful, so next year we will send 
you a record breaking report and several mem- 
bers from our chapter. 

We are sorry none of us can come for 
Aiumnae Day but best wishes for a most won- 
derful time to you all. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mildred Glover Wells. Jr. 


Another year has passed and we are meeting 
today to review the past months and to renew 
our interest in, and loj-alty to, Mary Baldwin. 

Since our last annual meeting on April 7, 
1927 with Mrs. Hogshead we have successfully 
carried on our work. 

At commencement time we welcomed old 
girls, extended hospitality to patrons, enjoyed 
the exercises and attended the banquet that we 
served at that time for the National Alumnae 

On October 4th, the date of Miss Baldwin's 
birthday, we served the luncheon at the Coun- 
try Club Inn, attended by many out of town 

Our Christmas Bazaar in December was 
again successful, $222.66 being realized by our 


Staunton Chapter. Thanks arc due to Airs. 
Carlotta Kable Morriss, acting as chairman 
of the fancywork committee for the National 
Association, to Mrs. Janet Stephenson Roller, 
chairman of the refreshment committee for 
our Staunton and Augusta County Chapter, 
and to Mrs. Iva Baugher Summers who took 
charge of the doll table, as well as to all who 
helped them. 

Christmas day was saddened for us bj' the 
death of ]\Irs. Charles Hunter, one of our 
most beloved members and loyal supporters. 

Under the undaunted leadership of Airs. 
Emily Pancake Smith, we brought Frieda 
Hempel to the New Theatre on February 3, 
for a delightful concert realizing therefrom the 
sum of $675.73. 

In September j^our chairman had the pleas- 
ure of accompanying Mrs. Russell to Alartins- 
burg, W. Va. where we visited Sue Stribling 
Snodgrass and attended a get-together lunch- 
eon given by the Lower Valley Chapter. Again 
she accompanied Airs. Russell to Harrisonburg 
where a group of interested old girls organized 
a chapter of alumnje, at a beautful luncheon 
given at the Spottswood Country Club. Other 
officers of our chapter went with her to Lex- 
ington to organize the chapter at that place. 

The officers of our chapter, with the National 
Officers were invited on February 23, to meet 
the Senior Class, being entertained by their 
sponsor, Miss Nannie AIcFarland, in the Col- 
lege parlors. 

The months in which we have worked to- 
gether have brought an increased interest in 
the cause of Mary Baldwin and a cementing of 
many dear friendships of school days. I be- 
speak for mj- successor your loj^al co-operation 
and support, and appeal to each one of you to 
stand back of the trustees and management of 
our College in loj^alty and moral influence to- 
ward whatever seems wisest and best for Alary

The Washington Chapter of the Alary Bald- 
win Alumnje Association has had its two meet- 
ings for the year. The fall meeting was held 
at Airs. Lizzie Firor Trimble's, October 21, 
1927. Routine business was the onty matter at 

The spring meeting with Aliss Rixey and 
Aliss Duffey as hostesses was held at the 
Thomas Circle Club, April 23, 1928. After 
the formal opening by saying the Lord's Pray- 
er in unison, followed by the reading of the 
minutes of the last meeting, the Chairmen of 
the Christmas Bazaar and Alissionarj^ Scholar- 
ship committees gave their reports. The follow- 
ing officers were elected. Airs. Kate Banner 
Alahood, Chairman, Airs. Lizzie Firor Trimble, 
Vice-Chairman, Airs. Elva Lee Chew Portillo, 
Secretary and Treasurer. 


The meeting was then turned over to Airs. 
Russell. She told most interestingly of the 
growth and development of the Alumnje As- 
sociation and how necessary it is for each for- 
mer pupil to do all she can to make Alary 
Baldwin College reach and maintain its place 
among colleges equaling or surpassing the place 
enjoyed by the Seminary among secondary 
schools. It means work, loyalty and love to 
Baldwin's from each and every one of us. 

It was with renewed determination to mean 
something to Baldwin's as Baldwin's has meant 
to us that each old girl went up and shook 
Airs. Russell by the hand and thanked her 
for making the effort to be present at our meet- 

After refreshments the meeting came to a

A chapter has not yet been organized in Ohio 
but a report of the splendid work done in that 
state by Airs. Elizabeth Hodge Risser was read 
by Airs. Helena Lankford Jones. Airs. Emily 
Pancake Smith moved, and it was seconded, 
that a note of appreciation be sent to Airs. 


Although as yet there is no Ohio Chapter of 
Alar}^ Baldwin Alumnae, it is not on account of 
lack of effort for it can truly be said that we 
have one of the most loyal and enthusiastic 
old girls that any state can boast. Airs. Eliza- 
beth Hodge Risser, who has been untiring in 
her attempts to form chapters in different sec- 
tions of Ohio. 

Last fall Airs. Risser Avrote in to the Alumnae 
Office asking what she might do in the way of 
Alumnse work and offering to help in any way 
possible. At once she was apointed temporary 
chairman for Ohio. This was the first time 
any one person has undertaken the organiza- 
tion of a whole state and it is certain that no 
one could be found who is more interested, 
faithful and energetic than Airs. Risser. 

Though she had the cares of a family, a 
farm and various other duties she wrote per- 
sonal letters to about a hundred Ohio girls, 
called many of them over the phone, kept the 
girls encouraged and never allowed the work to 
be given up. Ohio was divided into five di- 
visions, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Toledo, Colum- 
bus, and Dayton. In each place Airs. Risser 
concentrated her efforts on getting the girls 
interested in forming local chapters. Undue 
praise can not be given her for the vast amount 
of work that she did and would still be doing 
if her health had permitted. 

The girls in Ohio were very scattered and 
until the present time have not definitely organ- 
ized anj- chapters. However, the effect of 
Airs. Risser's personality and enthusiasm has 
been felt throughout the state and has been 

manifested by the gain of individual members 
for the Association. We feel that the near 
future will bring the completion of her plans 
and that the Ohio girls will join the girls of 
other states in this great work for our Alma 

Miss Harriet Sproul moved that the Execu- 
tive Committee be authorized to approach the 
College Board asking that they, with the help 
of this Association, make an appropriation for 
the salary of a full time Alumnae Secretary. 
In the discussion which followed Mrs. Black 
requested that Mrs. Russell express her opin- 
ion as to just what she considered the need for 
a full time secretary. This she did, explaining 
the necessity for the development of the chap- 
ters already organized, by personal contact of 
their members with the institution, or failing 
to accomplish that, by personal visits from the 
Alumnae Office or some one connected with it. 
The motion was seconded and passed. 

A motion was made by Miss Abbie McFar- 
land that, providing the College Board ac- 
ceeded to the request for an appropriation for 
the salary of a full time secretary, the Presi- 
dent, Mrs. Russell, be authorized to appoint a 
committee who should, with the approval of 
the Alumn.-e Board, employ such a person as 
soon as possible. This motion was seconded 
and passed. 

Miss Nannie McFarland moved that a rising 
vote of thanks be given to the two secretaries, 
Dorothy Morriss Fauver, and Dorothy Curry, 
for their work in the Alumnae Office. 

The report of the Nominating Committee 
presented the following names ; 

Mrs. Margarett Kable Russell, President. 

Mrs. Elizabeth Hanger Chaloner, First Vice- 

Mrs. Emily Pancake Smith, Second Vice- 

Miss Harriet Sproul, Corresponding Secre- 

Miss Margaret Bell, Recording Secretary. 

Miss Fannie Strauss, Treasurer. 

And also the names of the following per- 
sons as members of the Executive Committee, 
Mrs. Carlotta Kable Morriss, Mrs. Lucile 
Kilby Wayt, Miss Nancy McFarland, Aliss 
Abbie AicFarland, Miss Dorothy Hisey. 

Mrs. Herbert Taylor occupied the chair after 
the report of the Nominating Committee was 
given. Nominations from the floor were call- 
ed for and as there were none, a motion was 
made that the Secretary cast the vote. Mrs. 
Taylor instructed the Secretary to cast a 
unanimous vote for all nominees. This was 

The Nominating Committee also recommend- 
ed that in view of the fact that the new amend- 
ments to the By-Laws provided for an As- 
sistant Treasurer, that for the current term 
Miss Strauss, the treasurer, be empowered to 
appoint her assistant. This motion was sec- 
onded and carried. 

As there was no further business the meeting 
was adjourncci. 


Basking in the candle-glow of congenial con- 
viviality, nearly two hundred alumnae graced 
the spacious dining room of Mary Baldwin 
College on Monday evening to pay homage at 
the shrine of their beloved alma mater. 

The tables, arranged in banquet form, were 
alluring with their attractive baskets of garden 
flowers and soft candle glow. The Rev. Dr. 
A. M. Eraser offered the blessing, after which 
a delicious three-course dinner was served. 

Mrs. Margarett Kable Russell, National 
President of the Mary Baldwin Alumnae As- 
sociation, had charge of the program, and in 
a cordial and appropriate manner welcomed 
back the alumnae from far and near. In a 
few well-chosen and affable words, she also 
thanked each and every individual for her un- 
tiring efforts in making this annual gathering 
such a splendid success. 

Dr. Eraser, President of Mary Baldwin Col- 
lege, was next introduced, and the substance of 
his address was an expression of deep grati- 
tude for all "old girls" down through the ages. 
His introduction anecdotes of the yesterday 
provoked much merriment. 

Mr. W. W. King needed no formal introduc- 
tion to Baldwin girls, but delighted his audi- 
ence with an avowal of his everlasting love and 
admiration for all Mary Baldwin girls and his 
pride in their every achievement. 

Miss Nancy AIcFarland, representating the 
academic faculty of the school, and that of 
sponsor for the senior class, was next called 
upon. In her talk ]Miss McFarland lamented 
greatly the necessity of the absence of Dean 
Marianna P. Higgins on account of illness, but 
spoke enthusiastically of the greater Mary 
Baldwin, commenting that the future of the 
college depended on the loyalty of the alumnae. 

Next on the program was a word of appro- 
priate greeting from the representatives of the 
following chapters ; Staunton, Mrs. Mary Ben- 
ham Alitchcll Black; Lexington, Miss Agnes 
Penick ; Harrisonburg, Mrs. Rosa Dulaney 
Ott; Lower \'alley, Mrs. Keightley Timberlake 
Wilson; Richmond, Mrs. Eva Bowe Stern; 
New York City, Aliss Hazel Rumpf ; Wash- 
ington, Mrs. Kate Danner Mahood ; State of 
Ohio, Mrs. Helena Jankford Jones; and At- 
lanta, Ga., Miss Jessica Wright. 

Miss Lucy Page Coffman, representating the 
alumna: at large and a winner of the Beaux 
Arts scholarship, spoke most charmingly of 
what her training at Mary Baldwin had meant 
to her and how much the memory of her years 
there would always mean. 

Mrs. Flournoy, ex-state president of the 
United Daughters of the Cc)nfederacy and 
present state historian graciously expressed her 
pleasure at being a guest for the occasion. 

Miss Eugenia Bumgardner, one of the dis- 
tinguished alumnae, was then presented, and 
delighted her audience with illustrated slides 
of old girls in the costume of their day, cover- 
ing a period of sixty years, at ten-year inter- 

vals. Among these were : Miss Nannie L. 
Tate, the Seminary's first ahimna 1866, and 
clear to every old girl's heart, Mrs. B. W. 
Murphy, wearing the first uniform, a cunning 
looking outfit, then girls of the pompadour 
and high collar age, the period of bustles, the 
sweet girl graduate, the Gibson girl, the gay 
nineties, and the war workers. 

Enough praise cannot be given Miss Kath- 
erine See, a last year's graduate, who wrote 
"Alma Mater" the class song and "The Chal- 
lenge," a poem on the front page of the April 
News Letter, and who has also composed a 
libretto, which won recognition from the 
poetess, Edna St. Vincent Millay. Miss See 
was the authoress of the skit presented as the 
next attraction of- the evening's entertainment 
and was present to see it produced. 

The setting of the scene of this skit is a 
modern Baldwin girl's room, the usual college 
girl types being represented by Misses Dorothy 
Hise3^ Mary Linton Walton, and Elvira Box- 
ley. The theme of this skit is the vision that 
comes to these girls of the mothers and grand- 
mothers of the earlier Seminary days, which 
present day girls wish to record with the ad- 
vent of the new era in Mary Baldwin life. 
How real is the Yesterday, as to the strains of 
"Ben Bolt," Miss Jane Allen steps out of the 
glorious past, representing the crinoline days ; 
]\Iiss Mary Tyler Louthan, "Dixie"; Mrs. Dor- 
othy Morriss Fauver, "Annie Rooney" ; Miss 
Elizabeth Bowman, "Ta Ra Ra Ra Boom De 
Da, Miss Katherine Perry, "After the Ball" ; 
Aliss Caperton Holt, "Over There;" Misses 
Dorothy Curry and Ruth Campbell, "Smiles;" 
IMisses Harriet Hogshead and Mary Grasty, 
"Girl of My Dreams." Next came a group of 
college girls in caps and gowns, after which the 
singing of "White and Yellow" by the entire 
gathering brought to a close this annual Alum- 
na; day. As the girls, old and new, filed out 
of the dining room. Misses Mary Lou Bell 
and Elizabeth Timberlake presided over a 
memory book to which each alumna was asked 
to affix her signature. 

Mere words are inadequate mediums for ex- 
pressing the appluse due those who made 
Alumnae day such an overwhelming success, 
but especial mention might be made of the un- 
wearied efforts of Mrs. Emily Pancake Smith, 
chairman of the reunion; Miss Harriet Sproul, 
chairman of the dinner; Mrs. Frances Witz 
Hays, chairman of decorations; Mrs. Mary 
Alitchell Black who directed the skit. Miss 
King Nelson who had charge of the stage, 
The _Y_. W. C. A. choir, and Mrs. Gladys Park- 
er Silling, for training the voices in the songs 
used for the skit. Especial appreciation is due 
Miss Katherine Perry who so successfully col- 
lected the attractive costumes worn in the skit. 

Many Staunton alumnae were present and 
among the out-of-town visitors were : Mrs. 
Kate Danner Mahood, of Washington; Mrs. 
Keightly Timberlake- Wilson, of Charles Town, 


W. Va. ; Mrs. Helena Lankford Jones, of New- 
ark, Ohio; Miss Jessica A. Wright, of Louis- 
ville, Ga. ; Mrs. Ella Paris Heard and Miss

CLASS dAy exercises and 


The 1928 Class Day Exercises and Pageant 
were given on the beautiful school campus at 
3 :30 on Monday afternoon, May 28th. 

A splendid procession of the college prepara- 
tory seniors and Seminary Seniors followed 
by the College Graduates and their attendants 
made its way from the Academic Building to 
the steps of Hill Top where the class day 
exercises were held. The college preparatory 
seniors who led the procession were dressed in 
white and carried lovely arm bouquets of yel- 
low roses. The next group was composed of 
the Seminary seniors, gowned in green georg- 
ette and wearing large picture hats of the same 
shade. The College Graduates followed next, 
dressed alternately in lovely bouffant dresses of 
lavender and yellow. Each graduate, was at- 
tended by two of her class-mates who carried 
large shepherd's crooks tied with lavender or 
yellow ribbon. An arch was made of the crooks 
through which the graduates passed, and as- 
cended the broad steps of Hill Top. They 
formed a lovely picture. 

Each class was represented in the program. 
Miss Dorothy Rumpf gave the welcome ad- 
dress, in behalf of the College Preparatory 
girls. Miss Mary Moore Pancake of the Semi- 
nary Seniors was giftorian, and Miss Mildred 
Loewner gave the farewell to Mary Baldwin, 
for her class. The College Graduates were 
represented by Miss Elizabeth Hume, His- 
torian, Miss Clara Beery, Poet, and Miss Helen 
Baylor, Prophet. The Presentation of Mantle 
was made by the President of the Senior class 
to the President of the Junior class. 

Besides the school patrons and friends there 
were many alumnae present who enjoyed the 
colorful beauty of the scene. 


Kusan, Chosen, May 23, 1928. 
Mv dear Mrs. Russell; 

Your most cordial letter was so much ap- 
preciated and was read with so much interest. 
It is always a real pleasure to hear anything 
from our beloved Mary Baldwin. 

It is a source of genuine satisfaction to see 
our Korean Mary Baldwin School keeping 
abreast of the times and having a wider in- 
fluence year by year in this part of Korea. 
Compared with the beautiful grounds and 
buildings and equipment of our Alma Ivlater, 
we would appear most insignificant, but com- 
pared with the homes and surroundings from 
which our girls come, we are most grateful 
to nay that we have a good school. 

The tide again is turning towards our ]\Iis- 
sion Schools and so we have a full school this 
year. We carry only two Higher School grades, 
for we had four girls only in our second year 
of the Higher School last year. Of those four, 
one entered the third year of Eva Hakrang, 
the largest and best recognized Girl's School 
in Seoul. She had to take examinations of 
course, but she passed and was duly received. 
One entered the third year of our Central 
School at Kwanggin for which the last Auxili- 
ary Southern Presbyterian Church Birthday 
money was given. One entered the Nurses 
Training School at our largest Union Hospital, 
Severance Hospital, in Seoul. The fourth girl 
was married in April to a promising young 

We have eighteen girls in the first year of 
our Higher Common School this year. The 
people see the importance of educating daugh- 
ters now. It was hard work to convince par- 
ents twenty-eight years ago that an education 
was good for girls as well as for boys. That 
is all changed and for a most understandable 
reason. All of the desirable young men are 
seeking in marriage only girls who have been 
in school. As these young men prefer girls in 
the Higher grades, they are helping us keep 
girls in school longer. 

We feel that we are winning out. We have 
kept God's Word in our curriculum, have our 
daily devotional exercises, and yet are seeing 
our girls enter the higher institutions by ex- 

Our girls do all of the work in our school 
and so are prepared to make good wives and 
mothers. We have a man as janitor for out- 
side work and our matron cooks the mid-day 
meal. Friday afternoon and Saturday are busy 
with washing and ironing and a general clean- 
ing up. 

Mrs. Brand (Margaret Mary Dudley) who 
is proud also of being a Mary Baldwin girl, 
has started an Industrial Department. Girls 
who are very anxious for an education can pay 
part of their expenses by sewing. They are 

paid so much an hour. The Koreans are very 
poor in many instances, so this enables some 
girls to come to school who could not other- 
wise come. 

We have a tennis court and enjoy seeing 
the pleasure and benefit the girls derive from 
regular exercise. We have good teachers this 
year, all qualified according to the Japanese 
Government Standards. It has been a busy 
spring for us all. 

With most tender memories of the school we 
love so much. 

Most cordially yours, 

LiBBiE Alby Bull.

They are clambering up the terrace. 
They are loitering here and there 
They are laughing on the porches 
They are lingering on the stair. 
I stretch out eager hands in vain. 
The haunting past comes not again. 
They do well who lie asleep 
While we a loving vigil keep.

is Airs. Walter E. Blount, 1338— 31st St., N. 
VV., Washington, D. C. Anna Bell Garner 
Hyatt of Red Bank, N. J. is my dearest friend 
and we have kept in close touch with each 
other ever since we left Mary Baldwin in 
1903. I often see her and Marie Borchers 
Mittendorf. Anna Bell is Mrs. H. Norman 
Hoyt, of 180 Maple Ave., Red Bank, N. J. 
She is still called by the name "Babe." I had 
Eugenia Harvey Priddie of Memphis, Tenn. 
visit me last October. I also hear from Reine 
Harvey Moore and Eugenia P. Satterville who 
lives in Birmingham, Ala. Reine Harvey 
Moore spends her time between Memphis and 
Dallas, Texas since her husband's death in 
April 1926." 

Caroline Wood will teach in Roanoke, Va., 
this winter? 

Henrietta Bedinger will be in the Nurses' 
Home, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, 
Md. in the fall? 

Rachael Henderlite, who because of sickness 
was forced to withdraw from Agnes Scott last 
year, graduated with honor from that College 
in June? 

Because of her excellent work at Agnes 
Scott during the past four years, Frances 
Brown of Staunton received a scholarship to 
any graduate school in the country she should 
select? Her choice was Johns Hopkins which 
she will enter in the fall for a year of graduate 
work. It will be remembered that she also won 
Phi Beta Kappa this vear. 

Katherine Sw'an of Frankfort, Indiana is 
now Mrs. Rex. D. Frazier and lives at 2602 
Isabella St. Houston, Texas? 

Dr. Marianna P. Higgins, Dean o£ Mary 
Baldwin College, who has been ill for more 
than tw'o months, is considerably improved? 
She underwent a very serious operation dur- 
ing the early part of June, but is gaining her 
strength back rapidly and expects to be in her 
office before the summer is over. She is con- 
valescing at "The Kalorama," Staunton, Va. 


The following is a part of the item published 
in the Staunton Neivs Leader, dated Strasburg, 
Va., February 21, 1928. 

"A matter of more than passing credit to 
Strasburg is the fact that in the announcement 
just made by the Virginia State Chamber of 
Commerce of the award for the best poem on 
the 'Spirit of Virginia.' Mrs. Cathryn Loomis 
Waj^man w^as accorded fifth place in a field of 
415 contestants." After leaving Mary Bald- 
win Mrs. Wayman graduated at the Florida 
Woman's College and had some literary ex- 
perience on the stafT of that college's publica- 
tions. "The Spirit of Virginia" is repubHshed 

The Spirit of Virginia 

Near to the mountains of days long past 
Walk by the ghosts of her vanished dreams: 
Virginia comes into her own at last. 

Glide by the wraiths now slow, now fast. 
Watching so eagerly brilliant schemes. 
Near to the mountains of days long past. 

Men with ambitions, improvements vast. 
Saddle the power of her hills and streams: 
Virginia comes into her own at last. 

Gray-coated ghosts now may see, at last, 
Their land awake to progressive gleams. 
Near to the mountains of days long past. 

Down from the mountains they peer aghast, — 
Buildings out glow there the pale moonbeams : 
Near to the mountains of days long past 
Virginia comes into her own at last. 

Mrs. Wayman before her marriage was Miss 
Cathryn Loomis, of this city, and taught 
French, Spanish, and English in Robert E. Lee 
High School for several years." 

Mrs. Elizabeth Craig Gardner has finished 
her vocal course with the highest of honors 
under the famous teacher Venneni in Florence, 
Italy? Mrs. Gardner is now in Milan where 
she will take a course in dramatics and pre- 
pare to enter grand opera in the near future. 

Josephine Woods has spent the past eight 
months in Japan and is now located at the 
Golden Castle School, Nagoya, Japan? 

Margaret Holt of Staunton, Va. received her 
A. B. degree from the University of Michigan 
in June? 


If you enjoy the news you read here about 
your friends and school mates we are glad, 
but we hope each one of you will remember 
that the news we have of girls comes from 
the girls themselves. We can't print it unless 
it is sent in to us. Resolve now to send us 
everything you know about Baldwin girls (in- 
cluding yourself) for our November issue. 
Yours for a "Newsier News Letter" ! 


This is the largest class ever graduated from 
Mary Baldwin College with A. B. degrees ! 
This is the first class to join the Alumnae As- 
sociation as a whole ! We are very proud of 
them and have given them the title "Standard- 
bearers" because we feel they have hoisted 
their first flag in a splendid fashion pleding 
their continued loyalty and service to their 
Alma Mater through the Association. They 
have established a precedent worthy of the 
support of all out going classes. May their 
banner be ever held aloft and may they remain 
the true daughters of Mary Baldwin.

The two mile posts that direct our way along the road of alumnse 
progress are May 28th, and October 4th. Both reunions were insti- 
tuted primarily to serve as links by which we may keep in touch w^ith 
each other and the school. Each of these days has a significance 
peculiarly its own. 

Alumnse Day, always occurring during commencement is the time 
of rolicking, when joy reigns supreme, and a gay laugh is the recog- 
nized "pass key." 

October 4th, is just as happy an occasion but strikes an additional 
note, for on that day we not only gather to do homage to the memory 
of our great and beloved Miss Baldwin but to catch afresh her spirit 
of'undaunted courage and progress. So many obstacles are to be met 
in this modern path of Progress that our Alm.a Mater can only suc- 
cessfully attain the goal with the cheering assistance and love of her 
daughters along the road. Their medium for service is your Alumnae 



5 1900-28— (Air View) 

Association. It has inaugurated these two days, one of which it is now 
inviting you to write on your calendar as a definite engagement to use 
for Mary Baldwin. The best way you can fulfill this obligation is by 
being present at the luncheon in Staunton. 

We want to feel that this year has shown us progress, and we 
want, above all else, to derive the strength and enthusiasm from such 
a meeting as to make us resolve that the next year will reveal a longer 
journey accomplished, with hills and rough places triumphantly passed, 
and our mile posts gleaming more brightly than before as they point 
the way onward toward the time when your Alumna Association will 
be a powerful factor in the life of Mary Baldwin. Doesn't it thrill 
you to realize that you can belong, that you can show your love and 
loyalty, that you can help? Won't you?

He sJiall not speak the common tongue again.

Mary Baldwin News Letter 

Published by the Alumnae Association of Mary Baldwin College 


Staunton, Virginia, November, 1928 

No. 7 

The Purpose of the Mary Baldwin News Letter is to inform all Mary 

Baldwin girls of what the College, the Alumna Association, 

and its members are doing 

The First ]Mary Baldwin Uniform 


The Washington Chapter of the Mary Bald- 
win Alumnae Association stands as a monument 
to the faithful and generous work of Mrs. Nannie 
Walker Turk. To her unfaltering efforts in or- 
ganizing it and her cheerful encouragement and 
loyal support following its establishment, this 
Chapter owes its existence. We, the members of 
it, therefore, desire to pay our most sincere re- 
spects to the memory of Mrs Nannie Walker 


Elva-Lee Chew Portillo, 

Secretary and Treasurer 


In view of the rather unfortunate publicity recently 
given by some of the newspapers we should like to take 
this opportunity of stating to all of our girls that the 
headlines appearing in several instances were entirely mis- 
leading. There is no intention on the part of the college 
authorities of abandoning the plans already in opera- 
tion, which are, in brief, to maintain a first class col- 
lege. The College Department, as we all know, has been 
in operation for five years, having graduated fifty girls 
with an A. B. degree. 

Next year the Preparatory Department will no longer 
be maintained, thus giving greater space and added ad- 
vantage in every way to the College Students. 

The Alumnae Association as a whole and individually 
can serve its Alma Mater in no better way than by lend- 
ing its influence at this time. It is a period of transi- 
tion, trying in any event. We should therefore, as 
loyal daughters, see to it that these new sisters of ours 
may receive as rich a heritage of honor from their col- 
lege as those of any other in the South. 

We are proud of our past history, let us be proud of 
our future — and may it never be said of Mary Baldwin 
that her alumnae failed to rally to her standard, be it 
that of Augusta Female Seminary, Mary Baldwin Semi- 
nary, or Mary Baldwin College. 

Through them all, binding all in one are woven the 
bright threads, white and gold — the white for purity of 
purpose and high endeavor, the yellow of gold for her 
shining example of courage and intrinsic worth in the 
educational field since her inception. 

Surely all of us — that great number of women, old 
and young, who have passed through her portals in the 
eighty-odd years of her existence, are grateful for the 
privilege of joining in the mighty chorus of our new 
college song — Alma Mater. 


Thou wast born of dreams, Mary Baldwin, Mary 
Woman's dreams of love and true desire ; 
Conqueror dreams with passion's ardor glowing 
Caught from Truth's undying, pure white fire. 
Born to live, to perish never. 
To inspire to high endeavor. 
To uphold that light forever, 
Mary Baldwin ! 

Thou wast built of dreams, Mary Baldwin, Mary 
Dreams of faith, the dreams of early dawn. 
Thou shalt live beyond time's farthest limit ; 

Dreams shall last when walls of stone are gone. 

Born to live, to perish never, 

To inspire to high endeavor, 

To uphold that light forever, 

Mary Baldwin ! 


A radiant autumn day, an attractive inn, the beauty 
of whose natural setting hardly needed the gorgeous 
profusion of flowers with which it was decorated, the 
speakers whose attractiveness and charm were sur- 
passed only by their ability to hold the attention of their 
audience, and last and best, the warm greetings of old 
friends and school-mates were a few of the reasons 
why the luncheon held on October fourth in celebration 
of Miss Baldwin's birthday was such a success. 

At the speaker's table Mrs. Margarett Kable Russell, 
president of the alumnas association, presided. Other 
alumnae at this table included Mrs. Isabel Mcllheny 
Nichols (Mrs. H. S. Prentiss) of Philadelphia, Pa., and 
Miss Eleanor Adams, of Wheeling, W. Va., who were 
the principal speakers of the occasion. Airs. Mary B. 
Mitchell Black, chairman of the Staunton chapter; Mrs. 
A. M. Howison, alumnae chaplain ; Aliss Anne Sloan, 
representative of the Cumberland, Md., chapter; Mrs. 
Kate Hoge Davidson, representative of the Lexington, 
Va., chapter ; Mrs. Charlotte Ranson Taylor, chairman 
of the committee which placed the wreath on Aliss 
Baldwin's grave; Miss Anne VanDevanter, of Atlanta, 
and Mrs. Mattie Frazier Baldwin, of Baltimore, repre- 
sentatives of the alumnae at large. The artistic arrange- 
ment of the flowers on the speaker's table lent it added 

The blessing was pronounced by the alumnae chaplain, 
Mrs. Anne Hotchkiss Howison, after which a delicious 
two-course luncheon was served. 

Mrs. Russell then took charge of the meeting, bring- 
ing greetings to the alumnae from Dr. Fraser, Miss 
Higgins, Mr. King, and Miss Nannie Tate. Telegrams 
and messages sent by alumnae from distant places were 
also read at this time. Mrs. Black, chairman of the 
Staunton chapter, extended a brief and graceful wel- 
come to the visiting alumnae on behalf of that organiza- 

It is the custom of the association to entertain at this 
annual affair the Granddaughters of Mary Baldwin, the 
daughters of those girls who attended the school in 
years gone by. At this point in the program they were 
introduced, standing as their names were called. A list 
of the Granddaughters follows :

Representatives from the visiting chapters brought a 
short word of greeting, and messages which had been 
received from the chapters in Atlanta, Lynchburg, New 
York, Richmond, Savannah, and Washington were men- 
tioned. Miss Anne Van Devanter, who is field secre- 
tary of Home and Foreign Missions in the Southern 
Presbyterian Chuhch, represented the Alumnae at Large 
with a short talk. 

A committee composed of Mrs. Charlotte Ranson 
Taylor, Miss Margaret McChesney, Miss Lucy Walker, 
Mrs. Lytic Parkins Crawford, and Miss Mary Garland 
Taylor had visited the cemetery and placed a wreath on 
Miss Baldwin's grave. The following report was given 
by Mrs. Taylor, chairman of the committee : "It is our 
custom to place a wreath on Miss Baldwin's grave on 
the morning of her birthday as proof of the love and 
esteem in which her old girls hold her memory. This 
year it seemed a gracious thing to have the college girl 
of today join with the Seminary girls of yesterday in 
paying this tribute, so we asked Mary Garland Taylor, 
one of this years' college graduates and a relative of 
Miss Baldv/in through both her father and her mother, 
to place the wreath for us. The flowers, white carna- 
tions tied with yellow ribbon, were lovely, and we were 
glad to perform this service for the alumnae." 

A report which had been prepared by Dr. Fraser as 
chairman of the College Board to clear up some of the 
misinformation that has been circulating concerning 
the status of the college and its future plans was read 
by Mrs. Russell. 

The first speaker of the meeting was Miss Eleanor 
Adams, of Wheeling, W. Va., a 1927 graduate, who was 
presented to the audience by Mrs. Black with the fol- 
lowing introduction : 

"Burns' words — 'I wad some Pow'r the giftie gie us, 
to see oursels as others see us!' hold no terror for the 
brilHant, the fair, or the witty. So I feel no qualms in 
turning the flashlight squarely upon one of the speakers 
today and letting you see her through the frankest of 
mirrors — the eyes of her fellow classmates. Quoting 
from the Annual of '27, we find this about her : 

" 'Eleanor possesses that talent to which we are all so 
sensitive, being "played to." She carried us on waves of 
mirth or makes our emotions vehicles to lands of mys- 
ticism and romance. She holds a store of ability seas- 
oned with humor. Eleanor has done much for us in 
her three years — in her Y. W. work, active membership 
in the Dramatic Club, and in her splendid editing of 
The Miscellany.' 

"What more could I add to that to make her a four- 
square Mary Baldwin girl? Simply this, that passing 
out from the halls of Mary Baldwin, she has not left 

there the spirit she found, and today we welcome her 
in the ranks of loyal alumnae — Miss Adams." 

Miss Adams is the possessor of beauty, animation, 
charm, and a real talent for speaking. She has the 
bouyancy of youth that is so attractive to both young 
and old, and her hearers were delighted with the natu- 
ral and straightforward manner in which she spoke. 
The main import of her talk was that Mary Baldwin 
girls are Mary Baldwin girls whether they be products 
of the Augusta Female Institute, the Mary Baldwin 
Seminary, or Mary Baldwin College, that the school is 
pervaded by an intangilde atmosphere which enlists the 
loyalty of a student during her school days and retains 
her as a devoted alumna, that without change there 
can be no progress, and because the future of the school 
lies so greatly in the hands of the alumnae she urged 
them to stand by and support it in every way possible. 

Mrs. Russell then introduced Mrs. Isabel Mcllheny 
Nichols (Mrs. H. S. Prentiss Nichols) of Philadel- 
phia, who is prominent in social, educational, religious, 
and political work, being vice-president of the board of 
Christian education in the Presbyterian Church of the 
U. S. A., the only woman who was ever appointed to 
serve on the Art Jury of Philadelphia, a member of the 
Council of Education of the State of Pennsylvania, and 
one of the trustees of Wilson College for Women in 

Mrs. Nichols intrigued her listeners immediately, de- 
lighting them with whimsical reminiscences of her life 
at Mary Baldwin when a young girl of fourteen. She 
spoke with deepest affection of Miss Baldwin and Miss 
Kemper, of Dr. and Mrs. Richardson and several oth- 
ers. Passing on from the past to the present, Mrs. 
Nichols took as her subject "The Obligations of the 
Educated Woman Toward Citizenship." 

She pointed out the fact that woman's forte lies in i 
four spheres, that of the Home, the Church, the School, ^ 
and the Ballot. 

In a masterly and logical way each one of these 
phases of modern life was touched upon, so that her 
hearers could not but be inspired to a larger vision and 
more practical endeavor to meet the problems so often 
facing each of these agencies of civilization. 

These different interests might be said to converge in 
the daily life of the modern woman, and it is to the J 
Educated Christian W^omanhood of America that we \ 
may look for the happy solution of fine citizenship. 

At the close of Mrs. Nichol's address, Mrs. Howison, 
in a few well chosen words, expressed the appreciation 
of the audience to the speakers, and to Mrs. Russell for 
her work during the year. 

The program was brought to a close by several musi- 
cal selections from "The Beggars' Opera," which is to 
be presented in Staunton during November under the 
auspices of the Staunton chapter. Miss Elvira Boxley 
gave a short synopsis of the opera and introduced Miss 
Kathleen Sultan, who sang "Can Love Be Controlled?"

and "When Love is Kind." Aliss Louclla Torrence 
gave the two selections, "Cease Your Fretting," and 
"The Lass With the DeHcate Air." Both j'oung women 
showed decided voice training and were well supported 
by their accompanist, Miss Helen Morrison. 

The girls, all of whom are students at Mary Baldwin, 
added appreciably to the enjoyment of the luncheon 
and aroused much interest in the opera to be presented. 

Mrs. Russell expressed the appreciation of all the 
guests for the generosity of Mr. J. H. C. Grasty in do- 
nating the use of the Country Club Inn for the oc- 
casion. She thanked especially the girls who had helped 
make the luncheon a success by so cheerfully serving on 
the various committees. It would have been impossible 
to have carried out the plans without the very splendid 
voluntary assistance which was given. 

Expressions of. enjoyment and enthusiasm were heard 
on every side as the guests were leaving, and it was 
felt by those in charge of the luncheon program and 
arrangements that a more successful meeting had never 
been held. There is no doubt that the renewed interest 
and inspiration derived from this gathering of old girls 
will reveal itself in unsurpassed loyalty to our school 
and Association throughout the coming vear. 

We are happy to announce that Dean Higgins, who 
was ill for so many months during the spring and sum- 
mer, is at her desk again. She is working with her old- 
time vigor at many problems which are very vital to 
the development of our Alma Alater, among others, the 
enlarged faculty for next year, the new courses that 
will be added to the curriculum, and some of the other 
changes that will come with the passing of the prepara- 
tory school. 

Contributions have already been received for the 
annual Christmas Bazaar which will be held this year in 
the Girls' Parlor at the college on Thursda}-, December 
6, at 4 p. m. We hope every girl will remember the 
Bazaar cannot be a success unless the individual co- 
operation of the alumnas is secured, and that each one 
will send her Christmas present to the college fund, in 
the form of a saleable gift. 

It has been suggested that the organized chapters de- 
cide upon a definite article to contribute, and make up 
their box in that manner. For instance, should one 
chapter select towels as their gift, the members could 
contribute any sort of towel they preferred, bath towels, 
hand towels, tea towels, etc. There are any number and 
any variety that could be sent and this plan would help 
to relieve, in a great measure, the ever pressing ques- 
tion, "What shall I send?" 

But there, of course, enters the danger of several 
chapters sending towels— "Ah, there's the rub!" How- 
ever, that is so unlikely that this seems to be the most 
feasible plan ever suggested. Other articles w^hich 
would add greatly to the popularity of the Bazaar ar( : 

Cosmetics, including dorines, lipsticks, perfume, 
powder puflfs, and jars, bath salts, etc. These can be 
found in every sort of attractive holders and at any 
price. They are quick sellers with the girls. 

In a city like New York, Washington, Philadelphia, 
and Richmond, it would be very easy to pick up at- 
tractive novelty jewelry in pins, necklaces, choker 
beads, and pearls, that would appeal to all buyers of 
Christmas gifts, particularly the women. A jewelry 
counter would be a valuable asset to the Bazaar. 

Another "best seller" procurable in a large city is 
prints— old styles, silhouettes, scenes, and many other 
subjects attractively framed or ready for framing. 
They sell like the proverbial "hot cakes." 

There are any number of other things that would be 
just as popular as the ones mentioned above and we are 
leaving the selection of whatever article is sent to the 
committee of each chapter. The Bazaar used to be al- 
most entirely a fancy work affair, but in these days 
most people are too busy to make things by hand and 
the demand for them seems to be correspondingly dis- 

W'e are urging each chairman to appoint a committee 
of four or five members who shall decide upon the 
article their chapter will supply. This committee should 
immediately notify Airs. W^. S. Morriss, 215 N. Market 
St., Staunton, Va., so that there will not be several 
boxes of the same commodity. We would suggest Airs. 
Morriss be notified of the choice before the chapter 
members are informed, since it would be more confus- 
ing to call them all a second time, in case the article 
decided upon had already been selected by another chap- 
ter. A first and sfccond choice sent to Airs. Alorriss 
would greatly simplify the plan. A box should be pro- 
vided and the chapter members, when informed of the 
article selected, should be told where to send their do- 
nation, and by what date it should be in. Every donor' 
is urged to mark plainly on her gift the cost of the 
article to her, as this facilitates to a great extent the 
task of marking the gifts for sale. 

Last year several boxes arrived a day or two days 
late and had to be disposed of almost by "peddling" or 
held over until this year. We hope such delays can be 
avoided this year and are urging all chapter members 
to co-operate heartily with the committees. We should 
be glad to have donations reach us by the first of De- 

The alumnte at large are requested to send any ar- 
ticle of saleable value to AIRS. W. S. AIORRISS, 215 
N. AIARKET ST., STAUNTON, VA. All donations 
will be received wath great appreciation.

We are greatly indebted to Mrs. Bettie Bumgardner 
Murphy for her kindness in allowing us to use the pic- 
ture which appears on the first page of this issue. We 
felt that every old girl who wore a "uniform" at Mary 
Baldwin would be interested in the first one worn, and 
would perhaps laugh softly to herself in remembering 
what a terrible trial it seemed in her day, to have to 
wear one. Now, after the passage of a few years, 
such costumes have become a part of the rich old heri- 
tage of ours of which we are most proudly conscious 
when we say, "I am a Mary Baldwin girl." 

We are collecting, in addition to our Scrapbook clip- 
pings, all old pictures of Mary Baldwin girls and 
scenes, and are grateful to Miss Augusta Bumgardner 
for the generous gift of a picture of the school girls 
taken in 1888, to Mrs. Sue Stribling Snodgrass for the 
loan of a very valuable picture, and to Miss Margaret 
McChesney, Miss Mary Elder, Miss Margaret Lynn 
Cochran, and Mrs. Louise Rawlings Wilson, for old 
Blxjestockings, of which we are trying to collect a 
complete file to use in office work.

Grace Fargo (Mrs. Robert Wingfield), of Augusta,

The following clipping was sent in concerning the 
death of George Charles Shears, Priest, who was the 
husband of Marion Lindsay, '94: 

"The Rev. George Charles Shears, rector of St. 
Peter's Church, Poolesville, died suddenly at the rec- 
tory early Sunday morning, May 6th. His widow, four 
small children, his mother, four brothers, and two sis- 
ters, survive him. 

"The Rev. Mr. Shears was born in Newfoundland, 
November 2, 1885. He was educated in Newfoundland, 
McGill University, Montreal, Canada, and at the theo- 
logical seminary in Alexandria, Va. He was a teacher 
and lay reader for Dr. Grenfell on the Labrador coast. 

"Owing to the severe climate he came to the States 
in 1912 and entered the Virginia Seminary, being or- 
dained deacon in 1916 and priest in 1917. His first 
charges were at St. John's, McLean, Fairfax Co., and 

Epiphany, Cherrydale, Arlington Co., Va. He built the 
latter church while a seminary student. 

"He was forced to retire in 1923 on account of ill 
health. Having apparently recovered he took charge of 
St. Peter's, Poolesville, on October 1, 1927. 

"Funeral services on Tuesday, May 8th, were held in 
St. Peter's Church by the Rt. Rev. James E. Freeman, 
D. D., Bishop of Washington, the Rev. Percy F. Hall, 
of Alexandria, assisting. Interment was in Alexandria." 

Lucille Davis, of Little Rock, Ark., died in June, 1928. 

Mrs. Margaret McEachern Black died in a Fayette- 
ville, N. C, hospital on July 29, 1928, after two weeks' 
illness and following an operation for appendicitis. She 
was married to Linwood Black in March, 1915, and 
lived in Philadelphia for a number of years, moving to 
Greensboro, N. C, last January. Her husband and 
three children, two boys and a girl, survive her. 

Alumnae will be sorry to learn that Mrs. Elizabeth 
Hanger Chaloner was called to Staunton, Va., recently 
by the death of her brother, C. P. Hanger. Lelia 
Hanger Spillman and Mary Preston Hanger Simmons 
are daughters of the deceased, and we wish to express 
the sympathy of the Association to them in their loss.

Sunday schools, the Young People's Service league, and 
nearly every other phase of church work which includes 
young men and women.

Old girls will be interested in knowing that we have 
two speakers who are making professional tours this 
winter, Roselle Mercier Montgomery and Eugenia Bum- 

On October 24th Mrs. Montgomery appeared before 
the Poetry Society of Virginia, at the University of 
Virginia, speaking on the "Classic Legend in Poetry." 
On October 26th she read from her poems before the 
students of Mary Baldwin College. The local paper 
said of this performance : "Mrs. Montgomery's gracious 
personality, her simplicity, her sparkling humor, all 
added to the charm of the evening, and the enthusiasm 
and appreciation of her audience was evidenced by the 
spirited applause and by the reluctance with which her 
hearers permitted her to bring the reading to a close." 

In 1925 Brentano published "Ulysses Returns and 
Other Poems," by Mrs. Montgomery, and in December 
Appleton and Company will publish her second book of 
poems, entitled "Many Devices." This book will in- 
clude many of her interpretations of Horatian Odes. 

Mrs. Montgomery will speak in Cleveland and Cin- 
cinnati later in the season. 

Miss Eugenia Bumgardner, who spent about four 
years abroad during, and following the war, and was 
in the midst of the Red Cross, the Refugee Relief, and 
the reorganization work, has prepared a series of lec- 
tures on these subjects. She will speak at the Dixie 
Club in New York City, November 15th, on "Constanti- 
nople Under Allied Occupation," and before the Wom- 
en's Club of Port Chester, N. Y., on November 19th, on 
"Highways and Byways of Brittany and Touraine." 
During the coming winter she will also address the 
Current Events Club, of Staunton, Va., and the stu- 
dents of Mary Baldwin. 

She is particularly fitted to speak on such subjects 
since she had such unusual opportunities of studying 
the people and their problems at close range and this 
knowledge combined with her personality as a speaker 
makes her lectures both interesting and entertaining. 
It will be remembered that Miss Bumgardner is the 
author of the book, Undaunted Exiles, which has had a 
large sale and has been given much favorable criticism, 
and for her outstanding work among the Russian ref- 
ugees was decorated by the Grand Duke Nicholas, of 

We should be glad to give any information to clubs 
or organizations who might be interested in securing 
either of these lecturers, or they could be communi- 
cated with direct. Mrs. Montgomery's home is in Riv- 
erside, Conn., and Miss Bumgardner is in Staunton, Va., 
for the winter. 


yMiss Virginia Lucas, of Charles Town, W. Va., who 
>flas been steadily climbing the ladder of fame by means 
of a very real talent for writing, has done a very lovely 
poem for us, which will be used by the Association on 
the 1929 Birthday Card. These cards will be in the 
mails within a week, and we hope all old girls who 
have not sent their birthday (the month and day, not 

the year) to us, or who did not receive a card last year 
through some error, will let us know. 




A few weeks after the July News Letter had been 
mailed out, a letter was received from Mary Brent 
Whiteside, of Atlanta, Ga., in which she said : "A 
friend has just sent me a copy of the Mary Baldwin 
News Letter for July, in it marking my poem, "Who 
Has Known Heights," which occupies the back page and 
is attributed to Eleanor Davidson. 

"For more than a year I have been kept busy cor- 
recting this most persistent error. The editor of the 
Woman's Press very magnanimously made the correc- 
tion herself in the issue following the one in which the 
mistake occurred. But the poem continues to be widely 
reprinted by persons who happen to see it as it first ap- 
peared in the Woman's Press, and have failed to see 
the correction. 

"I must exonerate Eleanor Davidson (a college stu- 
dent) from intended misrepresentation. Students had 
been asked to send in favorite poems and also original 
poems, and Miss Davidson sent in the one in question 
in the former class, but without giving any name, and 
an associate editor, misunderstanding, supposed it to be 
original, and published it over her name." 

We have apologized to the author for our mistake 
and wish to clear up the mistake in the minds of all 
the readers who saw the poem in the News Letter over 
the name of Miss Davidson. 


It is a source of great pride to the Alumnae Associa- 
tion that it counts among its members so many Life 
members. It is one of the finest ways of showing loy- 
alty and a desire to support the policies of the organiza- 
tion. It is a very definite announcement of interest and 
faith in the association, it relieves one's mind from the 
yearly task of paying dues, and after all, it will prob- 
ably prove a "bargain." The fee for Life membership 
is $25.00, and once paid secures one from ever paying 
dues again. We thought the readers of the News Let- 
ter would be interested in knowing who the Life mem- 
bers are, and so they are published below :

Some day, I'll plant a garden, 

And in it there shall grow 
All the flowers I've ever loved. 

Row after row. 

Clematis for autumn. 

Daffodils for spring, 
God's green grass around about. 

Birds to sing. 

Box to rest my eyes upon. 

Scarlet sage for light. 
Columbine and hollyhocks. 

Lilies white. 

But while this earthly garden 

Is still a thing apart, 
I'll keep my memories blooming 
In the door yard of my heart.
