advanced courses as "Chaucer," "Eighteenth Cen-
tury Prose," and "Shakespeare," the English de-
partment provides for students a rich, valuable

The study of economics and sociology
helps students to achieve understanding
of the problems and workings of the
world. Underlying principles in business,
money, and finance are brought to light
by the study of economics. A knowledge
of sociology enables the student to understand the origins, functions,
and motives of modern society. Interest in social problems is fostered
by field trips and studies of conditions in and around Atlanta.

The 1949 SILHOUETTE
Picturing campus life in sucli an eventful year as 19-18-49 has made the work
of the Silhniielte staff interesting and at times somewhat frenzied. Working on
the layout, following Mr. O'Kelley and his camera, and writing copy were only
a iew of the jobs that had to be done. Other than work there was the excitement
of knowing who the beauties were and deciding on the cover design. The staff
has sought to achieve a Silhouette that represents through pictures the many-
sided life we shared on campus in '48-'49. We hope the scenes and snaps \\ill
keep this year alive for you.

Student Government Association accepted its responsibility to
help Agnes Scott students realize more fully their duty to live
honorably and unselfishly in the college comminiity. The Honor
System was brought to the attention ol each student through
group discussions. The work of the newly formed house council
in each dormitory brought students closer to the administration.
By sponsoring the Class Spirit Cup competition, Student Govern-
ment encouraged cooperation and imity within the separate
classes and aided in producing a unified student body. Student
Government and the campus became more aware of student
problems and government through the visit of representatives
of National Student Association, who focused our attention on
other students throughout the nation.

ideals of Christian Associa-
anifested in its president,
The activities ot Christian Association this year were planned
to further the theme, "Love Christ, Live Christ," and to make
the entire campus feel a part of the organization. It started its
campus activities by acquainting the freshmen witli the churches
located in the Atlanta-Decatur vicinity and introducing them
to the Association at a "Halo' party. Christian Association was
responsible for some of the best chapel problems of the year in
sponsoring discussions of Christianity's relationship to the fields
of drama, literature, music, and mathematics. New activities of
the Association were founding an inter-faith council composed
of the presidents of denominational groups and beginning the
"C. A. Halo," the cohmin in the Nexvs which reported the activi-
ties of the Association.
Off campus activities of service were work at the Negro Mission,
Scottish Rite Hospital, Y.W.C.A., and Church day camps.
Dr. Donald Miller emphasized the theme "Christian Living"

The members o£ Mortar Board, a national honorary society for senior women,
are chosen for their leadership, service, and scholarship. This year the group has
sponsored a reading room, marriage classes, and teas for day students and boarders.
Mortar Board was of great service in the campaign; it directed all student par-
ticipation and, in order to raise money to meet its own campaign pledge, con-
ducted a personal services organization which offered everything from shoe shines
to taxi service. Mortar Board, established at Agnes Scott in 1931, is an outgrowth
of the loiiiicr H.O.A.S.C. which had been founded in 1916. Their jjiirpose is
to "maintain a high standard of scholarship, to recognize and encourage leader-
ship, and to slitmihite ;ind dc\elop a ftner type college woman."
Morlar Board sponsors a tea for th
ilav suidems and their families.

ciency in diving which entitled them to member-
ship in the Dolphin Club. Club members par-
ticipated in the fall swimming meet, the A.A.U.

The special days and events pictured liere are the
source of spice and color in our college life; they are
anticipated by all students and become cherished
memories of days at Agnes Scott. The reception on
the quadrangle in the fall is a welcome to newcomers
into a varied round of extra-curricular activities and
a signal to old students that the teatined traditions
ol our campus life are again under way. From Orienta-
tion Week to May Day, climax of the year's activities,
there are innimierable opportunities for association
with friends, support of worthy causes, and individual
expression of talents and interests.
The eighth great campaign for an ever-advancing
Agnes Scott transformed the campus into a mock foot-
ball contest, as the mighty Agnes Scott team battled
against the Greenbacks toward the idtimate $1,500,000
goal. The entire college family lunched together at a
spirited pep meeting in the colorfidly decorated gym.
The kick-olf, signifying the beginning ol the pledging,
took place on the quadrangle, with representatives of
the classes and the faculty in full gridiron regalia.
Four days of intense competition followed in the effort
to reach the mark set for the school and win the prom-
ised holiday. When the dust of battle had cleared,
residts proved the senior team in possession of the four
anonymous SI 000 prizes, the .'!?20,000 goal met and
doubled, and the college awarded a two-day vacation.

THERE is no event in life quite so important
as the wedding. As such it is deserving of all
the dignified atmosphere with which it is sur-
rounded, and every detail in its celebration
is worthy of meticulous attention. Of these,
none reflects more distinction than the quality
and character of the wedding stationery.
Stevens' genuine engraving and Crane's fine pa-
pers confer this distinction with that grace and
assurance that comes from more than 60 years
of producing fine engraved stationery.
LONG in the memory of the bride will be the
happy recollection that her wedding cards were
perfect in every detail, reflecting her own taste
and personality. May we help you in this im-
portant feature of your wedding?
