arch 9, 1946, will be observed 
as the sixty-second anniversary 
of the founding of State Teachers Col- 
lege. Owing to travel restrictions, we 
were unable to have a full-fledged cel- 
ebration in 1945. With the coming of 
peace, however, I am hoping that a 
number of the alumnae will be with 
us. Founders Day is not an anniversary to be observed only by those of us 
who live in Farmville. To be successful the day must be observed co-opera- 
tively. Those in Farmville, certainly, will observe the day, but Farmville 
alumnae everywhere also have a part in the day, and I am looking forward 
to seeing a large number of you here on March 9. 



Your Alma Mater has survived another — and I hope the last — war. The 
College is prepared to render even a greater service to Virginia than it has 
rendered in the past. With the co-operative effort of all of us — Administra- 
tion, Faculty, Friends, and Alumnae — we shall go forward to greater and 
greater service. 

Your friend, 



J. L. Jarman 



Richmond, Virginia, 
September 19th, 1945. 



Dear Alumnae: 



It is a privilege to send greetings again to all of you who received your training at Farm- 
ville State Teachers College. 

Today, we proudly share the same common interest in the rapid development of a 
great Teachers College in Virginia. 

In this memorable year, with the restoration of peace, our thoughts and efforts can be 
turned once again to usual pursuits and accomplishments, which make a richer, fuller 
life. We shall have time for our friends; we shall be able to see them more frequently. 
As members of the Alumnae Association, we can meet more often, and enlarge the scope 
of work for the benefit of our college. You have been a great support, but more than ever 
Farmville will need a strong Alumnae Association, ready to meet new demands of a post- 
war era. 

Perhaps you have heard something of our plans for a greater General Alumnae Fund 
which we are presenting to you for consideration in this issue of the Bulletin. 

The Executive Board decided, after studying the trends in other Colleges and Uni- 
versities of substantial large-scale fund-raising campaigns, that it is an appropriate time 
for Farmville Alumnae to have a more definite goal and a plan whereby we may reach 
that goal. This is a business-like way of meeting needs of our College, which cannot be 
supplied by anyone else but the Alumnae. 

This year, in addition to taking care of the general running expenses of the Associa- 
tion, we are starting a special fund for an organ. It will be a memorial to our beloved Dr. 
Jarman. He has been approached, and the idea seems pleasing to him. Very soon a new 
auditorium will be built. In it we hope to have the organ, a gift from all Alumnae. 

It will be a pleasant, happy experience to meet many of you in Farmville on Founders 
Day. I am confident that in the coming year you will inspire your College with the same 
loyal spirit you have always shown. 

Sincerely your, 

Louise Ford Waller, 

President, Alumnae Association.

The Alumnae Fund 

OUR student body and our alumnae aie accustomed to raising money for gifts to 
the college on Founders Day in March each year. Questions are repeatedly asked 
about the use of this Founders Day Fund, as we have called it in the past, so we wish to 
recall to your mind some of the investments you have made in your Alma Mater. 

First of all, the Student Building was erected largely through your effort and coop- 
eration. The state appropriated $59,000 and you and other friends gave $110,000. All 
sorority and honor society rooms were paid for and furnished by students in residence 
and by the alumnae and friends of the college. You have been investing in scholarship 
funds as loans and as gifts, and one of our alumnae has made it possible for a number 
of girls to remain in college until graduation, when they could not have done it without 
her help. Certain ones of our alumnae have made personal gifts to the college in memory 
of some one who lived and worked with us in the past. You have put into the Library 
many portraits of men and women who have helped in the building of our Alma Mater, 
and you have added to the shelves in the Library many books in memory of one who 
gave books a new meaning for you. It is not possible to cover the scope of your giving, 
but your gifts have proved your loyalty to Farmville and your continued interest in edu- 
cation. 

At a meeting of the Executive Board last May a committee was appointed to study 
methods of financing Alumnae associations of other colleges, and ways of raising money 
for special objectives. That committee is ready to make the following recommendations 
for your consideration : 

1. Make all gifts payable to The Alumnae Fund. 

2. Let one dollar and a half be deducted from each gift for current expenses. 

3. Designate the objective for which you wish the remainder of your gift spent. 

We have a wonderfully well organized alumnae, with a central office here that we 
mention with pride. Dr. Jarman managed to get two thirds of our part-time secretary's 
salary on the state pay-roll, but it takes money to run that office, as you will see from Mrs. 
Coyner's report. If your gifts to the college can be only a dollar and a half, we feel it 
should be used for keeping our office going. 

The committee wishes to suggest a long-range objective, which we believe we can at- 
tain, since the Student Building was so well supported and so admirably sustained. Some 
day we shall have a bigger and a better auditorium, and when that time comes we should 
have a pipe organ for it. Dr. Jarman has wanted to start an organ fund for years, but 
each year .there are more immediate demands on the Founders Day Fund, and we think 

December, 1945 3 



the fund should be launched on our next Founders Day. Because of Dr. Jarman's love 
for music and the service he has rendered here through music we feel confident this ob- 
jective will make a popular appeal. Several Farmville friends have already offered to buy 
bonds for that fund — provided it be known as the Jarman Organ Fund. 

Please read Mrs. Coyner's report carefully, and use your ballot to advise us about 
the running expenses and the long-range objective proposals. These matters, will be voted 
on at the March meeting on Founders Day.

Louise Ford Waller Mary Clay Hiner

Some Facts About the Cost of Running an Alumnae Association 

Do you realize that it costs us about 

(1) $ 300.00 for mailing a letter to our Alumnae? 

(2) 110.00 for record cards, stationery and postage a year? 

(3) 25.00 for extra clerical work a year? 

(4) 20.00 for membership in American Alumni Council? 

(5) 15.00 for supplies and servicing typewriters and the addressograph? 

(6) 360.00 for our part of the Alumnae Secretary's salary? 

(7) 30.00 for traveling expenses of the Executive Board? 

Note: Last year we could not have met these expenses except for a balance from the 
year 1943, and the profits for three years from the sale of our College China. 

Do you realize that the College pays for 

(1) Two thirds of the Alumnae Secretary's salary? 

(2) One student for approximately two hours of office work a day? 

(3) Printing and mailing the Alumnae Bulletin to 7000 Alumnae? 

(4) Expenses of the Alumnae car? 

Note: We may have to take over some of the above expense at any time!

Founders Day 1945 

FOUNDERS DAY 1945 will go down in the history of our College as a war casualty 
for our Alumnae. This had been our annual homecoming day since the beginning of 
the student building, but when news came that our government had ruled out all meet- 
ings which would cause as many as fifty people to travel, the invitations to our Alumnae 
had to be cancelled. As disappointing as this was, all true Farmville daughters realized 
that winning the war was our first duty and they were willing to make this sacrifice. 

The Farmville Alumnae Chapter helped greatly by attending all the functions in larg- 
er numbers than usual. At ten o'clock in the morning they gave a coffee in honor of our 
new Dean of Women, Dr. Martha Smith. The usual celebration was held in the audito- 
rium an hour later. At this time the three portraits which Alumnae and friends gave this 
year were presented by the following: 

Dr. F. A. Millidge by M. Boyd Coyner; Miss Lula O. Andrews by Miss Mary Clay 
Hiner; Miss Minnie V. Rice by Miss Carrie B. Taliaferro. 

The Alumnae Secretary read reports of the Chapters for the past year. Especially did 
everyone miss the Class Reunions this year. Kate Burton Glenn of the Class of 1895 was 
present. Clare Woodruff Bugg represented the Class of 1905 and gave some interesting 
news items about the absent members. Letters from the other Class presidents were read 
from the following: Evelyn Noell Wood, 1915; Victoria Vaden Worden, 1920; Kitty Mor- 
gan Hogg, 1925; Frankie McDaniel Cargill, 1935. 

Dr. Fannie Wyche Dunn, professor emeritus at Columbia University and a former 
member of the Department of Education at S.T.C., gave a forceful and inspiring talk on 
"Why Teach Today". 

Concluding the day, the Dramatic Club, under the excellent direction of Miss Leola 
Wheeler, presented Shakespeare's "Midsummer Night's Dream."

FARMVILLE is proud of the continued 
activity of her Alumnae who are or- 
ganized into Chapters. In spite of war's 
effect on all organizations the large Chap- 
ters have continued their work for Alma 
Mater, with few changes. Most of the 
Chapters worked faithfully on the objec- 
tives outlined in a joint letter from the 
Alumnae president and secretary last fall. 
The following Chapters have either gift 
or loan scholarships; Culpcper, Farmville, 
Hampton, Newport News, Lynchburg, 
Norfolk, Richmond, and Roanoke. 

The Farmville Chapter, under the lead- 
ership of Martha Ann Laing Pearson, gave 
an award to be known as "The Mary 
White Cox Scholarship." It was offered 
to a Prince Edward County girl who was 
outstanding in scholarship and citizenship. 
Betty Ree Pairet of Farmville High School 
was the winner and it was presented at the 
June commencement. Sarah Dorsey Greene 
was presented the Richmond scholarship 
at the Thomas Jefferson High School grad- 
uating exercises. Betty Lewis Shank of Jef- 



ferson Senior High School received the 
Roanoke Chapter Scholarship. 

We are delighted to add a new chapter 
to our family this year. It is The Farm- 
ville Fairfax County Alumnae Chapter 
and it was organized in February, 1945. 
The officers are : Louise Howerton Cobb, 
President; Elsie Story, Vice-Pres.; and 
Mildred Corvin, Sec'y Treas. They sent a 
nice contribution and they entertained the 
high school graduating girls at a tea in the 
spring. The best of luck to our baby chap- 
ter! 

Maude Pollard Turman, the delightful 
Georgia lady of the famous class of 1894, 
was made president of the Atlanta- Chap- 
ter, to take the place of Elizabeth Bugg 
Hughes who has moved to Dallas, Texas. 
The following is an excerpt of Mrs. Tur- 
man's letter describing their spring meet- 
ing:

a retired teacher of Agnes Scott College,

Class Reunions 



NOW that the war is over, we hope to resume that happy custom of Class Reunions 
on our campus for Founders Day. The"Six" Classes are the lucky ones for they are 
the specially invited guests in the year 1946. Read the following letters from Class Repre- 
sentatives and predict which one will win the Jarman Cup for the largest percentage of at- 
tendance on March 9, 1946. 



Dear Classmates of 1886: 

This is an advance notice that the "6" 
classes, (of which our class holds the senior 
place), are scheduled for reunions on next 
Founders Day, March 9, 1946, and I urge 
that we begin to plan now to meet at our 
old Alma Mater for the occasion. In num- 
bers we are few, but that five of our class 
of eight are still "carrying on" into the six- 
tieth year since graduation strikes me as 
being something of a record. 

Since Farmville is the "old home town" 
for three of you, (of whom one has re- 
turned to live there), that added pull 
should help to draw you back, in spite of 
the miles from Georgia and Mississippi — 
and the other two of us, in the Old Domin- 
ion, are not very far away. 

I am increasingly convinced that people 
do not change very much, not essentially, 
in the course of a life-time, even a long 
one. Inherently we remain much the same, 
in spite of what the years may do to us, or 
bring of good or ill. So with reunion we 
would feel again the warm comradeship 
of the long ago years when we worked 
shoulder to shoulder as students. Many 
happy memories would spring at the sight 
of "the old familiar faces." As I write 
these words I can see each of you in mem- 
ory — and each face is smiling. "Memory is 
possession." 

Some of us have not been back to the 
College for several years and it is high 

December, 1945 



time for us to show our continuing loyalty 
and interest by a return visit. We know 
we would have a warm welcome because 
we know the place and its spirit — not to 
mention the honor of leading the Alumnae 
procession, Time having seen to that fea- 
ture. Moreover, we could give the Alum- 
nae classes an example to live up to — 
literally — that is, to aim to return for their 
sixtieth class anniversaries! So meet me in 
old Farmville. 

Meanwhile I want to share with you 
a favorite little poem: 

"Let me grow lovely, growing old, 
So many fine things do; 
Laces, and ivory, and gold 
And silks need not be new. 
And there is healing in old trees, 
Old streets a glamour hold; 
Why may not I, as well as these, 
Grow lovely, growing old?" 

Sincerely, 
Madeline Mapp Barrow 

Dear Classmates of June 1896: 

Can you realize the years count up to 
fifty since we were happy graduates at the 
S. N. S.? The dear old Normal is calling 
you back to be her guests on Founders 
Day, March 9, 1946, that we may cele- 
brate after so long a separation. "Time and 
tide await for no man" so let's think in 
terms of a reunion and start right now 



planning for such. Don't bother to fix up 
too much, that was not 1896 style. We 
were just plain school girls learning "to 
paddle our own canoe" as we were so often 
reminded to do by our dear Mr. Cunning- 
ham. Let's give our Alma Mater a big sur- 
prise by being stronger in number than 
she expects. 

We will have to guess who is who, but 
that will be fun, and to meet each other 
face-to-face will be a good spring tonic. 
Then, too, you will say to me, I am sure, 
that we need to renew the much help and 
inspiration we gained during our years in 
Farmville. With love to each one of you, 
Rosalie Stuart Bland 

Dear Classmates of Feb. 1906: 

Do you realize that it has been ten years 
since the "6" classes met at their Alma 
Mater? This year let us celebrate Victory 
and win the Jarman Cup by having a big 
reunion of the February, 1906, graduates. 
I know that there are several vacant places 
in our small group of twenty-one, but 
wouldn't it be fine if all of us who have 
been spared could meet at old "S. N. S." 
on March 9, 1946? 

Make an effort to come, won't you? 
We are not too old to have a good time, 
though I have had to pack away my black 
and gold Classpin years ago, for it too 
surely dated me. 

If you can do so, please communicate 
with some other member of the class, and 
let us all get together in Farmville for a 
real celebration. 

Yours for auld lang syne, 

Florence L. Ingram 

Greetings to the Class of June, 1906! 

Saturday, March 9, 1946 will be our 
fortieth graduation anniversary, and Dr. 
Jarman has invited us to meet on Foun- 
ders Day for a reunion. 

Our class poem closed with this verse: 

10 



Our thoughts turn back to scenes now 

past, 
For, Alma Mater, we soon must part; 
The years that we have spent with thee 
Will live forever in the heart. 
We'll ever love the grey and gold, 
And the year nought six shall be 
A beacon light to guide us 
"Out of port into the sea." 

It would be interesting and a real treat 
to get together and exchange experiences 
since we set sail upon the sea of life. 

How many of our forty-nine members 
will make an effort to meet once again 
in the halls of our Alma Mater and be 
greeted by Dr. Jarman? 
Sincerely, 
Mary Preston Clark 

Vice-President 

Dear Members of the Class of 1916: 

Again we are to celebrate our class anni- 
versary and may we all say with Harry 
Emerson Foswick "It is a great time to 
be alive." 

I wish that I had the power to wave 
a magic wand so that all of the years that 
have gone could come back, but I can't, 
and the next best thing is for us to make 
a promise and plan to meet March 9, 1946. 
At this time we may recount our experi- 
ences, divulge our secret formulas for "long 
life," and renew the friendships that we 
made in our earlier years, and live in and 
with that grand spirit that pervades S.T.C. 
An added thrill will be to have Dr. Jar- 
man call us by name and give us the 
"once-over" from his sparkling eyes. 

I am far from the paths of most of my 
classmates, but through correspondence I 
have gotten some news which I hope you 
will enjoy — and incidentally make you 
want to come back more than ever. It is 
true, we of many years ago, may have 
plenty of competition but I am sure that 
we can take it, can't we? Julia Philips

ried an Insurance man, they have two 
sons. While being necessary for the main- 
tenance of their home she finds time to 
continue her music — she teaches piano, di- 
rects several choirs and still sings. And for 
good measure she studies during the sum- 
mer. Brave, our 1916 songbird. 

Lelia Richardson Williams has continued 
her artistic tendencies while living in Mor- 
risville, Pa. She is quite an authority on 
Interior Decorating. As for your Class 
President, I'm afraid that she cannot have 
the added glory that has come to many of 
you. I'm still trying hard to be a Georgia 
Cracker, but that is a hard job, when I 
have so many sweet memories of "Vir- 
ginia". (The mildness of the climate has 
done its part to keep my hair red.) 

Unfortunately, we have no children, but 
I keep busy with our home and doing the 
many tasks that fall on the civilian to do. 

With every good wish and hearty con- 
gratulations for each of you, and looking 
forward to seeing you in Virginia March 
9, 1946, may I close with the lines from 
James Whitcomb Riley: 

Memory Lane — "with sunshine spread 
As thick as butter on country bread 
Our care behind, our hearts ahead." 

I am 

Sincerely yours,

Dear Classmates of 1921, 

Do you realize we are about to have our 
twenty-fifth anniversary? I know that 
seems impossible but next year is 1946! It 
is the year for a big reunion and I'm hop- 
ing each of you will start planning im- 
mediately to meet me in Farmville on 
March 9. 

How many times have I thought of you 
during these years! And how I have 
lamented the fact that I was too far away 
to look you up, say "hello", and ask all 
the questions that came to my mind. I 
feel sure you have felt the same way so 
now's our chance. It is our chance too, to 
win that silver cup that Dr. Jarman gives 
each year to the class having the largest 
percentage of attendance at these reunions. 
We are not so great in number and with 
many living near we should have one 
hundred per cent attendance. 

I understand many changes have taken 
place at S.T.C. since we were there. Some 
will sadden us but others should make us 
very proud. Do you remember how hard 
we worked as a class on the very first 
Founders Day? Of course you do — and 
don't you think it would be fun to get 
together — all of us — and see how our 
brain child has progressed? And aren't you 
anxious to start reminiscing about our 
college days together and to talk about 
the many changes and experiences that 
have come into our lives during the busy 
years since 1921? It's a date then — March 
9, 1946. Let's make it a happy reunion 
and the best Founders Day ever. 

With every good wish to each of you, 

Sincerely, 
Katherine Stallard Washington 



Dear classmates of 1926: 

Can you realize the time for our 20th 
reunion is almost here? Now that the war 
is over, we can turn our thoughts toward 
happy times once more. What better place 
to turn our thoughts and feet toward than 
Farmville and "those two eyes of blue, 
still smilin' thru"? Remember how the 
tears flowed when we sang that song to 
Dr. Jarman? Well, let's all be there next 
March to shed happy tears when he gives 
us, the degree class of 1926, his cup for 
having 100% attendance. Miss Mary Clay 
has sent me a list of the class with the 
latest addresses she can find, so I hope to 
send each of you a personal letter during 
the winter. Kate Trent, Olive Smith Bow- 
man, Ida Hill and Elizabeth Roberts are 
here in Washington and I am sure 
they will help me write to you. They will 
come with me to Farmville in March, I 
hope, and it will be grand to see all of 
you again and hear the news about each 
of you. Miss Mary Clay is waiting to wel- 
come us and she will add a post script to 
my letter. 

Make your plans now to be there and 
help us turn back the years — and I do 
mean all of us. 

With love to each of you and looking 
forward to March 1946 I am, as always 
^our friend through the years, 

Ann Smith Greene 

P. S. I am looking forward with pleasure 
to seeing you in March. Do come, every 
one of you, if it is possible at all. 
With love, 
Mary Clay Hiner

Dear Class of '36: 

Does it seem possible that we have been 
away from Farmville, and "out in the 
world" for ten years? The years have 
passed so swiftly that for each of us this 
realization, I'm sure, comes with a bit of a 
shock. It seems but yesterday, doesn't it, 
that we were bidding each other tearful 
goodbyes, sad at parting and at leaving the 
portals of our second home, yet full of 
eagerness and excitement because we were 
ready to step out on bigger ventures. 

These ten years have been crucial ones 
for the world; perhaps each of us has 
likewise met our own individual crises. I 
trust that for us all, as for the world, 
things are now looking up, and that by 
next Spring there will be a happy ending 
to the whole story. 

Anyway, whatever these ten years have 
unfolded for us, let's get together again 
next Founders' Day at Farmville, and re- 
gale each other with tales of our past! 
What could be more fun than sharing our 
histories, swapping stories of our careers 
or our families, whichever the case may 
be? There are so many of you whom I 
haven't heard a trace of these ten years 
and I'm really eager to hear about that 
husband, those little ones, or that grand 
position you're filling. 

The war has restricted travel a great 
deal, but for the most of us who aren't 
too far away, it should be possible for us 
to meet at Farmville next Spring, and 
have a glorious reunion. Please let's all 
start scheming right now to be there. 
Bring the family album, and all the news 
you can glean from the classmates who 
may not be able to be there in person. ( I 
hope they'll be few.) 

Very best wishes to you all, and I hope 
to see you everyone in March of '46. Till 
then — 

Sincerely, 

Tac Waters Mapp

Station S. T. C. News Broadcast 



By Virginia Treakle 



THIS is station STC broadcasting to 
you from the news room of the Farm- 
ville State Teachers College, located in 
Farmville, Va. The broadcast is designed 
for the purpose of bringing to you, the 
former daughters of Farmville, news and 
views of our campus as recorded during 
the past session, 1944-45. 

On September 18, 1944, some of 316 
freshmen, coming from almost every coun- 
ty in Virginia and from several other states, 
entered the doors of Farmville to begin 
what was to be for many of them a four- 
year college course. Regardless of heavy 
rain, these girls entered our halls of learn- 
ing to pick up and to carry on the torch 
of Farmville spirit, that spirit which each 
Farmville girl cherishes. By the end of the 
first week, new girls and former students, 
then totaling 842, were well on the way to 
one of the most successful years that this 
school has known. 

Shortly after the arrival of the students 
on campus, Alpha Kappa Gamma held 
its quarterly tapping service at which time, 
two seniors and three juniors were recog- 
nized. Martha Higgins, Portsmouth, and 
Sally Robertson, Lynchburg, were the 
senior members tapped, while Frances Lee, 
Richmond, Ann Martin, Suffolk; and Vir- 
ginia Treakle, Farmville, represented the 
junior class. 

Our first formal lyceum was held on 
October 13, at which time the All-Ameri- 
can Ionion Quartette presented a program 
of male voices. Also in the realm of musi- 
cal programs was the concert of songs of 
the Allied Nations presented by Joan Ruth, 
a native of Boston. Wearing costumes 
representative of the different songs and 

14 



countries, Miss Ruth rendered English, 
Chinese, French, and American numbers. 
Appearing on the campus at 8:30 o'clock 
on January 9, the Canadian String Quartet 
presented a concert in three parts. A world 
famous group, this quartet has participated 
in coronation ceremonies for their Ma- 
jesties King George and Queen Elizabeth 
in Westminster Abbey. 

Flash! Flash! Eighteen students repre- 
sented Farmville State Teachers College 
in the eleventh edition of "Who's Who 
Among Students in American Colleges and 
Universities" for the year. Those students 
whose names were listed were Marilyn 
Bell, Richmond; Mary Elizabeth Fuque, 
Cape Charles; Martha Higgins, Ports- 
mouth; Mary Ann Jarratt, Jarratt; Fay 
Byrd Johnson, Vinton; Marilyn Johnson, 
Roanoke; Jane Knapton, Covington; Sara 
Dailey Moling, Winchester; Harriette 
Moore, Gastonia, N. C; Sally Robertson, 
Lynchburg; Jane Waring Ruffin, Charles 
City; Barbara Scott, Franklin; Mary Pres- 
ton Sheffey, Marion; Lucy Manson 
Sharpe, Virginia Beach; Eleanor Wade, 
Charlottesville; Ophelia Whittle, Peters- 
burg; Sara Bird Williams, Woodstock; and 
Helen Wilson, Petersburg. 

Following the Farmville custom the 
"sophiscated" sophmores prepared to pes- 
the "seditious, sciolistic" freshmen for two 
traditional rat days. These big days were 
climaxed by "Big Rat Court" which was 
held in the auditorium on the last night. 
Having undergone the perils of ratting, 
another class was ready to become a vital 
and real part of our college.

Among; Our Alumnae 




Mrs. Eva Lovelace Tuck 



Farmville is proud to have among her Alum- 
nae Virginia's First Lady, Eva Lovelace Tuck, 
wife of Governor William M. Tuck. After 
leaving Farmville she taught in North Staun- 
ton High School in Halifax County and in 
Portlow, Spotsylvania County. In 1917 she 
married Lester Layne Dillard, and lived at 
Portlow until his death in 1921. Her son, Les- 
ter Layne Dillard Jr. is a graduate of Hamp- 
den-Sydney College, and was studying law at 
Washington and Lee University when the Pearl 
Harbor attack came. He is now a Senior Lt. in 
the Navy and is on the Battleship Missouri. 
In 1928 she married William M. Tuck, and 
they have lived in South Boston, Va., ever 
since. 

1883-1894 

The Virginia friends of Fannie Bugg (Mrs. 
D. B. Blanton) are happy that she and her 
husband decided to make Farmville their home 
upon his retirement from business. They had 
lived in New York City for many years. Their 
address now is 400 First Ave., Farmville, Va. 

Irene Bullard, a well known physician in 
Charlottesville, Va., writes of her early mem- 
ories of Farmville: "A stout homesick girl was 
blessed by rooming with Virginia Hathaway, 

December, 1945 



who made life endurable. It was she who 
elicited and relayed to me the statement made 
by the president, Dr. Cunningham, that Miss 
Bullard has some sense if she ever learns how 
to use it. Without any visible signs of mentality, 
his assertion of its embryonic presence has 
sustained me for fifty years." 

The Bessie Dunn Miller Clinic for Cancer 
Prevention, the first clinic of its kind in Vir- 
gna and the seventh to be establshed in the 
United States, was opened in February, 1945, 
at the University of Virginia. It is a memorial 
to the late Mrs. Bessie Dunn Miller, who was 
actively interested in public health work and 
in cancer control activities during her long 
service as home demonstration agent for Albe- 
marle County. 

Belle Wicker had a happy and unique end- 
ing to many happy years of teaching and 
study, the last twenty-eight in the Bainbridge, 
Georgia, high school. At the close of her last 
session, she was asked to make the commence- 
ment address. When she ended her talk, she 
was presented with $1,000, the gift of many 
former pupils and friends. Instead of making 
a degree her aim, she studied along the lines 
she felt would enable her to contribute most to 
character development and scholarship of her 
students. She attended summer schools and 
traveled in this country and Europe. When a 
student at S. T. C, then State Female Normal 
School, she participated in examinations given 
at the University of Virginia, instigated by 
Miss Celestia Parrish, to show that women 
students were prepared to carry studies in Uni- 
versities. She was the only student in Virginia 
to try all of the subjects, and made the highest 
marks, receiving the "Distinguished Grade" and 
a gold medal. 

Lucy Rodes Irvine (Mrs. J. M. Irvine), 
Route 4, Staunton, Va., taught fourteen years, 
then married. Her husband died in 1934. Last

ucation at S. T. C. and adviser of the Sigma 
sorority, received the Emily Gates National 
Award for outstanding service to the sorority 
last year. In the history of this sorority only 
nine people have ever received this recognition. 

Estelle CrafTord (Mrs. R. B. Watts) Amblers- 
on-the-James, Williamsburg, Va., "is doing a 
noble part in many constructive activities of 
church, community and state," so writes one of 
her class mates.

of the North Staunton Elementary School near 
Lvnchburg. Her daughter, Sara, is supervisor

Three New Portraits 

(Continued from page 4) 
Dear Farmville Alumnae: 

My thoughts will be turning all this 
week with special longing toward Farm- 
ville and Founders Day. More than any- 
thing else I can imagine, I should love to 
be there! 

The College meant more to me than it 
is possible to measure. And the fact that 
some of the Alumnae want me among 
those whose faces look down upon them 
in friendly and grateful remembrance 
reaches the deepest place in my heart. 
It was a joy to serve the College to the 
best of my ability, and the dearest friends 
I have ever had came from the faculty 
and students. They constitute my only 
riches and they are fortune enough for 
any one! How I wish I could be there to 
put into personal words — or to try — my 
grateful appreciation for the honor they 
have given me. 

The best of everything to the College, 
its president, its faculty, its students, and 
its wonderful Alumnae! 

Faithfully yours, 
Lula O. Andrews. 

Dear Friends: 

When I think of trying to thank you 
for what you have done for me, by pre- 
senting a portrait of me to S.T.C., for 
the picture gallery in the library, the pret- 
tiest part of our College, I am overcome 
by emotion too deep for utterance. 

The honor that you have conferred 
upon me is the greatest that I have ever 
received in my life. This action on your 
part, as long as I live, will always speak 
to me of the love of my friends. 

To each one of you, all that I can say 
is I thank you, I thank you. 

Sincerely your friend, 

Minnie V. Rice

Press — Alpha Kappa Gamma raised the 
"Big Top" over the annual circus which 
was held on campus November 4. The 
program was planned around the theme of 
a Manhattan Merry-go-round of fun. Be- 
ginning with a parade at 3:30 in the after- 
noon, the affair was brought to a final 
climax in the gym on Saturday night, at 
which time, Helen McGuire, Grundy, 
reigned over the circus, attended by Peep- 
sie Brooks, Farmville; Margaret Lohr, 
Brightwood; and Jacqueline Parden, Ports- 
mouth. The majestic seniors captured first 
place in the stunts, and the sophomores 
came in second, thus making a circus tri- 
umph for green and white. 

Under the direction of Miss Leola 
Wheeler, the Dramatic Club presented on 
November 1 7, Allan Kenward's saga, "Cry 
Havoc." A realistic play based on actual 
facts and set in Bataan in 1942, "Cry 
Havoc" is the story of the work of a 
group of volunteer workers on an army 
base during the most difficult period of 
Japanese raiding. 

Also around the middle of November, 
Betty Deuel Cock, Hampton, and Ann 
Masloff, Danville, tied for top honors in 
the annual short story contest sponsored 
by the Colonnade. 

That night of night which is anticipated 
by each senior class became a reality for 
the seniors of '45 on December 9, at which 
time, Bubbles Becker and his orchestra set 
the dance tempo. Shirley Pierce, honorary 
class member, and Eleanor Wade, presi- 
dent of the class, led the figure. 

Sponsored on this campus by the Col- 
lege Choir and Choral Club, Jean Love, 
Australian soprano, and James Mont- 
gomery, New York lyric tenor, appeared 
in the annual Christmas concert on Decem- 
ber 17. Also appearing in the concert were 



the various music groups on campus under 
the direction of Mr. Alfred H. Strick. 

The world known author, lecturer, and 
traveller, Dr. Sherwood Eddy came to the 
campus for two days in January, sponsored 
by the Young Woman's Christian Associa- 
tion. Not only did Dr. Eddy speak to the 
student body in chapel, but he also led 
informal discussions on the problems of 
the world as they confront the college 
student. The author of thirty volumes on 
international, economic, social, and reli- 
gious questions, he was well qualified to 
lead us in intelligent, world-wide discus- 
sions. 

Flash! Flash! Flash! Robert Frost the 
internationally famous lyric poet, came 
to the campus on January 22, under the 
auspices of Beorc Eh Thorn, English 
honor society. We heard the English teach- 
ers discussing his visit delightedly, and we 
heard the eager note of expectancy in the 
voices of the students who were looking 
forward to his coming. Then Monday 
, night came, and we heard Mr. Frost read 
to us some of his own charming poems 
and talked to us in his own friendly way. 
He again spoke very informally at the 
reception following his lecture, They, the 
People, sat in a semi-circle on the floor 
about his feet . . . and We, the Radio 
Reporters, sat among them . . . our ears 
strained and our minds feverishly taking 
mental notes, vainly hoping we could 
catch everything he said in order to give it 
to You, the Public. 

Back we went to the hum-drum college 
life, but not for long. On January 24, 
AKG again surprised us by having its 
quarterly tapping service. This time, Nancy 
Harrell, senior from Emporia; Shirley Cru- 
ser, junior from Norfolk ; and Dora Walker 
Jones, senior from Radford; Patricia Mad- 
dox, senior from Roanoke; Eleanor Bisese, 
junior from Norfolk, were recognized and 
tapped as future members of the Joan 
Circle. (Continued on page 27)

Sponsored on the campus by Pi Gamma 
Mu, the annual Mardi Gras ball was held 
on February 10, with Virginia Terrell, 
Front Royal, reigning over the festival. The 
queen was attended by Jane Philhower, 
Williamsburg; Elise Hume, Bluefield, W. 
Va.; Luz Quinones, Hato Rey, Puerto 
Rico; Peggy T. Ross, Onley; Lynn Sprye, 
Lynchburg; Virginia Travis, Lynchburg; 
Mary Walker Watts, Amherst; and Mary 
Watkins, Emporia. 

One week during each college year, the 
Y. W. C. A. sponsors what is known as 
Religious Emphasis Week, during which 
time special programs are held in Chapel 
and special discussions are held daily or 
nightly for those students who like to at- 
tend. Dr. Churchhill Gibson of Richmond 
was the guest speaker for the 1944-45 
Religious Emphasis Week. 

Presented as third in the Artist Series 
for the year, Janet Bush, contralto, and 
Gertrude Hopkins, harpist, appeared on 
the campus on Friday night, February 16. 
Entertainment on the "lighter" side was 
also furnished during that week when the 
sophomore class gave its annual class pro- 
duction which was this year directed by 
Nancy Whitehead, Kecoughtan. 

A combination of the Red Cross and 
World Student Service Fund drives, the 
War Chest drive was opened on the cam- 
pus in February. This drive, which was 
headed by Shirley Cruser, terminated on 
Wednesday, February 21, the day which 
was set aside by the administration, faculty, 
and students as a day of emphasis on the 
war and on the peace that was to follow. 
Major Noel T. Adams, post chaplain for 
Camp Pickett, was the main speaker for 
the day. 

The end of February rolled around, and 
with that came the appointment of publi- 



cation heads and two weeks later, the 
election of major officers. Lillian Elliott, 
Farmville; Nancy Whitehead, Kecough- 
tan; and Virginia Treakle, Farmville; 
were appointed editors-in-chief of the three 
college publications, the Virginian, the 
Colonnade, and the Rotunda, succeeding 
Marilyn Bell, Richmond; Jane Knapton, 
Covington, and Jane Waring Ruffin, 
Charles City County. 

Jacqueline Parden, Portsmouth, was 
elected president to the student body to 
succeed Harriette Moore, Gastonia, N. C; 
Minnie Lee Crumpler, Suffolk, was elected 
president of the Y. W. C. A. to succeed 
Sara Bird Williams, Woodstock; Freddie 
Ann Butt, Portsmouth, was elected presi- 
dent of the House Council to succeed 
Martha Higgins, Portsmouth; and Frances 
Lee, Richmond, was elected president of 
the Athletic Association to succeed Helen 
Wilson, Petersburg. 

On Saturday, March 10, the Founders 
Day program was held at the college, at 
which time, Dr. Fannie Wyche Dunn, a 
former member of the local department of 
education and now professor emeritus at 
Columbia University, was the guest speak- 
er. As a climax to the day, the Dramatic 
Club presented Shakespeare's "Midsum- 
mer Night's Dream," a comedy in three 
acts. 

The freshmen came to the spotlight on 
April 4 to present one of the best class 
productions in recent years. Mary Rattray, 
Long Island, New York, served as chair- 
man of the production. 

The election of class officers occurred 
around the end of March when Eleanor 
Bisese, Norfolk; Margaret Ellett, Jennings 
Ordinary; and Peepsie Brooks, Farmville, 
were elected presidents respectively of the 
incoming senior, junior, and sophomore 
classes. 

Of special interest to the students was 
the return of Dr. T. Tertius Noble, choir

master emeritus of St. Thomas Episcopal 
Church, New York, to our town and to 
our campus. Dr. Noble conducted the 
choral groups in the traditional spring con- 
cert sponsored by the music groups of the 
college. Gertrude Gibson, lyric soprano, 
and Lloyd Linder, tenor, appeared as solo- 
ists for the program. 

Receiving high honors for the senior 
class were Sara Dailey Moling, Winchester, 
who was named as first honor graduate, 
and Mary Preston Sheffey, Marion, who 
was named second honor graduate. 

Representing the spirit of New Russia 
Betsy Caldwell, Sweet Briar, reigned as 
queen over the May Day festivities at 
Longwood on Saturday, May 5. Repre- 
senting the Nationality, Elise Hume, Blue- 
field, W. Va., attended her as maid of 
honor. Under the direction of Miss Emily 
Kauzlarich, the festival was based on a 
Russia of yesterday and today with a re- 
discovery of the past and a re-appraisal of 
the present and future. Members of the 
queen's court were Marilyn Bell, Rich- 
mond; Ann Blair, Portsmouth; Peepsie 
Brooks, Farmville: Joan Davis, Lynch- 
burg; Martha Russell East, South Boston; 
Martha Higgins, Portsmouth; Marilyn 
Johnson, Roanoke: Mary Jane King, Rad- 
ford; Frances Lee, Richmond; Jacqueline 
Pardcn, Portsmouth; Theresa Powell, 
Richmond: Berkley Richardson, Rich- 
mond; Lucy Manson Sharpe, Virginia 
Beach; Martha Lynn Sprye, Lynchburg; 
Virginia Terrell, Front Royal; Virginia 
Travis, Lynchburg; Mary Watkins, Em- 
poria, and Nancy Whitehead, Kecoughtan. 
Dora Walker Jones, Radford, was the 
general chairman for May Day, and 
Catherine Trower, Eastville, served as busi- 
ness manager. 

At the spring tapping service, Alpha 
Kappa Gamma recognized four juniors, 



Minnie Lee Crumpler, Suffolk; Lillian 
Elliot, Farmville; Jacqueline Parden, Ports- 
mouth ; and Agnes Stokes, Kenbridge. 

Throughout the entire year, the interest 
in sports on the campus was unusual. 
Games between classes and between colors 
were held from time to time, and then on 
May 23, the big day for all Red and 
Whites came when Helen Wilson, senior 
from Petersburg and president of the 
Athletic Association, presented the color 
cup to the red and white classes, the fresh- 
men and juniors. Also at this time, eight 
seniors were awarded blazers for outstand- 
ing sportsmanship and active participation. 
Receiving white blazers for participation 
in more than one sport were Barbara Scott, 
Franklin; Mary Walker Watts, Amherst; 
and Helen Wilson, Petersburg; and receiv- 
ing blue blazers for participation in one 
sport were Margaret Bear, Churchville; 
Edith Lovings, Farmville; Jean Carter 
Smith, Williamson, West Virginia; Eleanor 
Wade, Charlottesville; and Ophelia Whit- 
tle, Petersburg. 

Ending another year of life at our own 
State Teachers College, Dean George B. 
Zehmer, Dean of the Summer School at 
the University of Virginia, delivered the 
graduating message, and the Rev. A. H. 
Hollingsworth, pastor of the Second Pres- 
byterian Church, Roanoke, preached the 
baccalaureate sermon. 

Through this, the first broadcast from 
station STC we have tried to give you a 
brief account of the activities as they have 
existed on the campus and a brief insight 
into the campus leaders of today and 
future citizens of tomorow. Of course, we 
have picked only a few of the highlights 
on our campus; time and space will not 
permit us to go into a more lengthy broad- 
cast. Come back to see us, and we shall tell 
you everything.

Miss Zita C. Bellamy of the Business Educa- 
tion Department, was married on June 24, 1945, 
to Mr. John R. Hanford, in the Y.M.C.A. 
Chapel, Philadelphia, Pa. She is continuing her 
work here while her husband is a medical stu- 
dent at the Hahneman Medical College. 

Mrs. Ruth H. Bradshaw has resigned as Asst.

from overseas. They expect to make their home 
in Norfolk, Va. Mrs. Bradshaw will be greatly 
missed in the Music Dept. and as organist and

Miss Margaret Sprunt Hall of the Home 
Economics Dept. has a leave of absence to

Dr. Edith Stevens, Assoc. Prof, of Biology,

News of Former 
Faculty Members 

Dr. Bessie Carter Randolph, president of 
Hollins College, made the Twenty-fifth Anni- 
versary talk to the Womans Club of Farmville 
on October 3, 1945. Dr. Randolph was teach- 
ing at S.T.C. when the Womans Club was 
organized and was a charter member. 

December, 1945 



"The Educational Forum"' of January 1945 
carried an excellent summary of an address de- 
livered at the University of Idaho by Dr. J. 
Franklin Messenger on the subject "From My 
Generation to Yours." His former students who 
read it will recognize the same clarity of ideas, 
the same naturalness of style and tone that 
characterized the professor they loved and 
admired a generation ago. 

Harper and Brothers has recently published 
a timely book by Miss Mabel Culkin and her 
sister, Mrs. Margaret Culkin Banning, on the 
ethics of good manners and courtesy. It is both 
a report and a needed warning on the manners 
of America at a time when the world is watch- 
ing to see how people brought up in a democ- 
racy conduct themselves. 

This excerpt from a letter of Dr. Elmer E. 
Jones will warm the hearts of the Class of 1904, 
and other Alumnae who were privileged to have 
classes with him: "I deeply appreciate your 
inquiry of me and I am certain that you under- 
stand my feelings for my students at Farm- 
ville in the early years of this century, and my 
love for Virginia and Virginians. Those six 
years were the happiest I have spent on this 
planet, and after thirty-six years of absence, 
I have more dear friends in Virginia than in 
any other state." Dr. Jones has retired and is 
living in Colorado. 

Miss Georgia Norris is at her home in Colum- 
bia, S. C, and is teaching in one of the city 
schools. 

With deep appreciation of a life well lived 
we pause to pay tribute to Miss Mary St. Clair 
Woodruff who passed to her reward October 
31, 1944, at her home in Anniston, Ala. Miss 
Woodruff was a member of the faculty of 
Farmville S.T.C. for fifteen years. During that 
time she served as principal of the Training 
School and later as Y.W.C.A. Secretary and 
teacher of Biblical History. As Miss Minnie Rice 
so beautifully expressed it, "Miss Woodruff did 
not seek that easy distinction that comes from 
superficial work. She knew that to serve worth- 
ily one has to be equipped adequately; therefore 
she sought every opportunity for training." Her 
academic attainments were many, and in addi- 
tion to these, Miss Woodruff possessed those 
sterling qualities of character which made her 
a strong factor in any faculty or community. 
She was liberally endowed with those personal 
qualities that lend themselves to the highest 
measure of success in the instructing of youth. 
She being dead yet lives in the hearts and lives 
of the many who came under her Christian 
influence.

A Day in School 

(The following is a "Composition," writ- 
ten by Etta Hanbury (Mrs. L. L. Sawyer), 
dated April 10, 1887. She was a student at 
"The Normal" in 1886-1887.) 

SOME where in the small hours of the 
morning, say about nine o'clock, if you 
happen to be on any of the streets near 
the College, you will be apt to hear a con- 
fused sound, which will perhaps startle 
you at first, but on asking someone versed 
in Normal lore, you will find that your 
first fears of an earthquake or a tornado 
were groundless, and that the girls are only 
practicing their "vowels." This may strike 
you as rather peculiar, but it is a key to the 
work of the Normal, and if you know your 
"vowels" well, it is very apt to prove a key 
to the teacher's hearts. 

The morning devotions came after the 
"vowels" and are usually conducted by Dr. 
Ruffner, the President of the College. Then 
the members of the Preparatory School 
march out of the Chapel by music, and if 



there is one thing that we should be proud 
of, it is the way we march. Not a crooked 
line, not a misstep, everything is done like 
trained soldiers. 

The school-room usually presents a very 
neat and tidy appearance except around 
the fourth desk and second row which is 
usually in a very tumbled condition, but 
we should not be too hard on its occupants 
as they are from Hampden Sidney. It is 
to be hoped that this sad state of affairs 
will not last long as these benighted mor- 
tals are soon to be separated and placed 
where their influence upon another will not 
be so much felt. 

I will not dwell much on the lessons in 
the morning as they are always perfectly 
recited, except by the occupants of the 
fourth desk, second row. The report in 
the afternoon is not so good as a trouble- 
some element has arisen in the shape of an 
odd class of Normalites, who take the 
leavings in the morning for the sake of 
enjoying the high intellectual privilege of 
the "Prep" room in the afternoon. 

The first impression of a stranger upon 



32 



Alumnae Magazine 



entering the Normal School is that about 
one third of the girls are red headed, and 
our room is not far behind in that partic- 
ular. It is for the sake of these that rule 
eight was placed among the new set of 
regulations. 

School closes about four o'clock, and the 
pupils are at liberty to go home and study 
for the next day's lessons. 



Scholarships, etc.

dership of Edith Estep Gray, entertained 
the senior girls of Botetourt High School 
at a tea on April 5, 1945. Dean Martha 
Smith, Virginia Wall and Ruth H. Coyner 
attended. 

The Portsmouth Chapter gave a tea to 
the Wilson High School graduating girls 
in the home economics living room at the 
high school, April 10, 1945. Beth Johnson 
and Dorothy Diehl are the home econom- 
ics teachers there, and Mary Rice is the 
Chapter President. Virginia Wall and 
Ruth H. Coyner were guests for the occa- 
sion. 

The Roanoke Chapter found it difficult 
to have many meetings due to the many 
war activities there. Last spring, Tux How- 
ison Metcalfe, their president, entertained 
the group with a tea in her home. 

Esme Howell Smith, president, and 
Mary Dornin Stant, entertained the Bris- 
tol Alumnae at a tea in Mary's home on 
Lee Heights last fall. They sat around a 
big open fire with annuals, pictures and 
Rotundas to start their much "reminis- 
cing." 

The Richmond Chapter held its exec- 
utive board luncheon meeting in the home 
of Louise Ford Waller in the fall, at which 
time plans for the year were made. The 
annual spring luncheon was well attended 



at the Franklin Terrace Tea Room. Dr. 
Jarman and Dean Smith were the speak- 
ers at this occasion. Myrtle Dunton Curtis 
was elected president to succeed Maria 
Bristow Starke, who has served in this 
capacity so faithfully since the reorgani- 
zation of this Chapter. 

In Greensboro and Winston-Salem, N. 
C, our Alumnae represented S. T. C. on 
"College Day" in the high school. 

Lila McGeehee Vreeland of Charlotte, 
N. C, sent their Chapter greetings and 
contribution on Founders Day. This Chap- 
ter has entertained our College Debating 
Team when they were visitors in this City. 

The Staunton Alumnae entertained at 
dinner at The Triangle Tea Room on 
May 9, 1945, when Virginia Wall and 
Ruth H. Coyner were guests there over- 
night. Frances Crawford, librarian at the 
Robert E. Lee High School, is president 
of this loyal group. 

The Blacksburg Chapter met in the 
home of Louise Vaden Threlkeld the lat- 
ter part of May. Mary Spiggle Michael, 
former president, wrote: "When our regu- 
lar business was over we enjoyed a de- 
lightful social hour. We looked at current 
Rotundas and talked over old times." A 
corrected list of Blacksburg Alumnae was 
sent in. and the following are the new 
officers: President, Louise Vaden Threl- 
keld: Vice-President, Louise Presson 
Swink; Secretary-Treasurer, Ruth Jami- 
son. 

The most pleasant rumors have come 
out of the "Deep South" concerning the 
New Louisiana Alumnae Chapter. Helen 
McHenry McComb and Virginia Daugh- 
trey Conners of Baton Rouge invited 
Alumnae from New Orleans and Gonzales 
to a bridge luncheon, (this gave them a 
chance to show off their lovely new Farm- 
ville China!) We hope they will do this 
at least once a year and really be a "Louis- 
iana" Chapter of Farmville Alumnae.
