REPORT OF THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE ASSOCIATION, 1933 FrHE Ninth Annual Meeting of the Association was held on

J1 Saturday, June 23, 1934, and was attended by thirty-two members. The Chairman's statements on the events of the year included (1) a report on the building, (z) the announcement of the retirement of Mr. Charles Ball, Head Gardener since 1915, (3) the announcement of the appointments at Girton College of Miss M. L. Cartwright as Staff Fellow and Lecturer in Mathematics, and of Miss J. M. Hussey as Pfeiffer Research Fellow, and (4) the successes in the Examination Schools up to the present date. The election of Miss E. M. Talbot as a Member of Council under Statute XIII, and the re-election of Miss C. M. Ady as Secretary to the Association, were reported. Miss B. M. Hamilton Thompson was re-elected Editor of the Chronicle of the Association to hold office for three years. Miss E. A. Phillips presented the Report of the Jubilee Committee. Some discussion followed on the date of the Jubilee Celebrations, and preference was expressed for holding them in June 1936, rather than for postponing them until the following year. The Chairman read a letter from the Secretary of the Oxford Society announcing that the Executive Committee of the Society had decided in future to admit the members of any College Society to life membership of the Oxford Society for the reduced subscription of ÂŁ2. Miss Rice reported on the response which she had received to her appeal to Senior Members for subscriptions to St. Margaret's House, Bethnal Green. She again urged all Senior Members to do their best to support it. The following were present: The Chairman. M. L. Lee. E. Rosser. The Hon. Secretary. B. L. Lefroy. S. F. Salt. E. Lemon. M. E.

REPORT OF THE JUBILEE COMMITTEE, 1934-5

SINCE

its inception in June 1933 the Jubilee Committee has held four Meetings, while the Executive Committee has met more frequently. There have been two additional members appointed to the Committee, Miss Francis to represent the Official Fellows of the College, and Miss Doveton, who was President of the J.C.R. in 1933-4. A report from the Committee was presented to the Association of Senior Members at its annual meeting held at the College on June 23rd, 1934. The Appeal for funds for the Jubilee Gift to the College was sent out in the summer of 1934, and a letter from the Committee informing members of the College of the result of this appeal is printed below. There is also a printed list of those who have already subscribed. The Committee would also like to draw attention to the list of those members of the College whose present addresses are unknown, which is included in this issue of the Chronicle. The Committee is anxious that these members should be informed of the Jubilee Celebrations, and they would be grateful for any information which can be given which will assist in tracing these addresses.

ST. HUGH'S COLLEGE JUBILEE FUND Committee think that Senior Members will be interested to hear of the progress of the Fund. In response to the appeal issued in June 1934 the sum of ÂŁ795 has been either received or definitely promised. This sum represents the contributions of 103 members of the Association, other old students, and friends, and the donations range from 5s. to zoo guineas. The Committee feel that a good beginning has been made, and thank those members who have made such prompt response. They venture to remind those who have not sent in their subscriptions that the nature of the gift to be made to the College must depend on the amount subscribed, and that it will be convenient if a decision can be made by the end of this year. It seems to be generally agreed that the establishment of a Scholarship or Scholarships would be the most satisfactory and acceptable gift, but if this is to be possible a minimum sum of L2,000 will be needed. The actual subscription may be paid in instalments or at any date convenient to the subscriber, but it will be helpful if the Treasurer can be informed of what is intended. All readers of the Chronicle will be aware that the gift is to be the corporate expression by all old students of their love for and gratitude THE

9


to the College, and the Committee trust, therefore, that no one will refrain from giving because she knows that her contribution must be a small one. We would say with the writer of the Book of Tobit, `If thou hast much give plenteously, if thou hast little do thy diligence to give of that little.' ELEANOR ADDISON PHILLIPS, Chairman. E. E.

THE P INCIPAL'S LETTER DEAR MISS HAMILTON THOMPSON, SEE that in my last letter to you (1933) I referred cautiously to `the objective of a new structure to be opened for use in the year of the Jubilee'. These words I write to the agreeable accompaniment of falling bricks next door, where No. I St. Margaret's Road is speedily disappearing from sight, and every omen points to the attainment of that 'objective' in time for the academic year beginning in October 1936. (Your frontispiece, if rather sketchy, gives some little idea of the aspect of the future buildings, but I think we may say the extension will surpass any expectations aroused by this illustration.) Twenty-seven new students' study-bedrooms, and two tutors' suites, are contained in the building, as well as the Library, Librarian's office, and rooms for reading, lecturing, and 'stack'. This new space will allow us to dispose in various ways of the less convenient rooms now used for some of the above purposes. The detached Houses will still be inhabited, but by smaller numbers; and the whole of the east wing, after extensive internal alterations, will be given over to domestic uses. The architect's plan of alteration for the Mordan Hall is expected to make of this favourite room a most dignified as well as a most useful rendezvous for purposes of assembly. Other minor changes in the main building will give better office and cloakroom accommodation, and will include a dispensary for Miss Salt. The new building will occupy the greater part of the garden of No. 1 St. Margaret's Road, and the trees on that side will have to be cut down. Luckily they are not of special beauty, and we can keep the beeches which stand on our side of the fence. The ground formerly belonging to the Ansell family which lies south of No. has been levelled and sown with grass; the little partly-enclosed orchard south again is to be kept, probably as a S.C.R. garden. Plans for paths and flower-beds are maturing in the mind of the Custos Hortulorum, and by the time the building is finished and furnished its immediate surroundings will be continuous, and in character, with the College garden. These great and most welcome changes will add immensely to our comfort. Senior Members will be glad to know that though of necessity

j

II


a considerable debt must be incurred in financing them, prudent management has kept it within safe limits, and the period of repayment is expected not to extend to a great number of years, and to be carried through without any diminution of the annual allocation at present made from revenue to scholarships, &c. In this connexion, Senior Members will be glad to know that the Council has lately resolved to offer, probably next year for the first time, a further Senior Scholarship, to be awarded annually to that undergraduate of the College who, already qualified for the degree by First or Second Class Honours, is adjudged most worthy of a further year's study in the University. Conditions governing this annual award are shortly to be drawn up. The need for endowment continues acute. Can there be another residential College for women in any of the greater Universities of the Empire which has at its disposal one open entrance Scholarship, and no more, of the value of £4o a year, awarded but once in three years ? Unquestionably, endowment both for Scholarships and for the higher ranges of research—in which more and more of our members are acquiring competence—is an object the College and all its friends must still set firmly before themselves. We shall soon set about planning in earnest for our Jubilee celebrations. The date is fixed for the Saturday to Monday after the end of the Trinity Term 1936, viz. June 27th-29th, and full particulars of the programme will be sent to Senior Members in April next year. I hope every forgetful graduate of the College who has dropped off, and every casual graduate who has never put herself on, the Association Register will repair her omission between now and then. We want the gathering to include every single member who is not prevented by physical impossibility from coming to Oxford at the time. The near future is, as you see, much in our minds, but I must not leave your readers without any news about the present. There have been no changes on the Council except the inevitable annual replacement of one of the three Elected Members by another, Miss Talbot having succeeded Mrs. Kennard Davis last October. A new tutorial appointment has been made, Miss D. H. F. Gray, M.A., formerly Scholar of Somerville College and Gilchrist Student 1928, having last October taken charge of the Classics teaching of the College. Miss Glover, who is away on a year's leave of absence, travelling in the Far East, will return to take charge in future of the Philosophy teaching alone. For the current year a member of the College, Miss J. W. Macleod, B.Litt. (M.A. Glasgow), has been directing Miss Glover's pupils, and as Gamble Lecturer in Philosophy 1934-5 has during the year delivered two courses of intercollegiate lectures for the College. We congratulate Bristol University on its appointment of Miss Macleod, in succession to the late Miss Staveley, as Warden of Clifton Hill House from September next, and the South generally on retaining her. Senior Members will, I know, be sorry to hear that advancing age has compelled the retirement of Ball, the College Head Gardener 12


for twenty years. He and his wife went in the autumn to live in the house they had bought several years ago, taking with them the good wishes of us all. Harris, who had worked under Ball during recent years, is proving an excellent successor to him. For the rest of our doings I must refer your readers to other pages. They will find much on which to congratulate the College. Yours sincerely, March 1935. B. E. GWYER.

'THE T WN WHERE GI LS LIVE LONE' T N a series of articles entitled 'Aspects of present day life' printed .11. by an Italian daily paper, the Gazzetta del Popolo, there recently appeared one by Ercole Palti entitled 'The town where girls live alone', which was intended as a faithful description of Oxford as seen by 'our special correspondent'. The following is a literal abridged translation of the article, with the paragraph headings as they stand in the original. It begins by describing how, on leaving Paddington for Oxford, the writer sees a girl arriving at the last moment when the train is about to move. `Running for all she is worth, with her legs beating against a little grey checked skirt' she rushes into a compartment but immediately rushes out again and into another, only to leave this too and fling herself into a third one on the window of which the word 'Smoking' appears. `SMOKER OF EIGHTEEN' `She is a girl of about eighteen years with a fresh and clear complexion, a thin slightly snub nose, and limpid eyes with little specks of brown, like beauty spots, in their iris. Fair hair, gathered together at the back of her head, and a small hat tilted over one ear. She has a bundle of illustrated papers, three books, bound in the severe manner of schoolbooks, a large handbag. Shoes with high heels, golf socks carelessly worn neither up nor down, left falling untidily round the ankle, like those worn by sucklings. Out of these socks rise two slender long legs, encased in very thin stockings, tightly pulled, which the girl manoeuvres all the time, stretching them out or crossing them inside the compartment with slow and easy movements as if she were swimming. A very attractive girl, on the whole, with wonderful legs. `And now she takes a packet of cigarettes out of her handbag with her pink unpolished nails, opens the folded tin-foil and extracts a cigarette. She taps it two or three times on to the back of her hand with a vague far-away reminiscence of Marlene Dietrich, strikes a 13


match, lights her cigarette, puts out the match with a simple and measured flick of her fingers, (and) sends out a big puff of smoke, gives slight kicks (meanwhile) with the tip of her crossed foot, and looks out of the window. Very well done indeed. One feels inclined to congratulate her. All these movements, far from simple especially in front of a masculine audience, have been executed with ease and simplicity. She is a student who is going back to Oxford after having been one day in London to see her people. She lives in Oxford, alone : she shows in her gestures and in her way of looking at things the assurance of one who is used to live and to move among unknown people. Of girls like this Oxford has hundreds.' In fact, having arrived in Oxford and being afraid of finding the town as described in the literature which deals with the 'unbridled gaiety, due to sport, of English students which makes them a bit irritating', he is delighted to see that though 'one approaches these famous towns of students with a certain diffidence, luckily the atmosphere of the boat race is not apparent in the roads of Oxford'. And he adds: 'It is probably there, it probably smoulders under the surface, but it is not in the air, as I feared.' `STUDENTS ON BICYCLES' What he sees are 'Swarms of women students, between fifteen and twenty, who pass on their bicycles. Hundreds of legs move up and down with a slight accompanying movement of the shoulders in the effort of going up a slope. Rubber boots glisten, stockings the colour of turtle doves or of banana skins, now and then a garter appears and a bit of white lace over a knee. Here and there a skirt is blown back by a gust of wind coming from a cross roads. It is z p.m. It is the time for the legs of the Oxford women students who, after the pause of noon, run to their afternoon lessons, and hasten to the libraries. They all have an air of hurry and decision, their faces the colour of pink apples. They are the daughters of doctors, of lawyers, of London Civil Servants. Some have their families in Nottingham, Birmingham, or Leicester, and live here alone like young men. They receive cheques from home and go to cash them at the banks; they administer their pounds and their shillings which tinkle at the bottom of their large handbags. . . . `Along the pavement, beside the doors of libraries, dozens of bicycles stand in rows. Mostly feminine bicycles, with their curved bars and their wicker basket fixed to the steering handle. The girl cyclists have gone to consult some books. There are also some women students with cars. Behind the shining panes of certain little cars, one catches a glimpse of the pink face of a girl at the wheel, alone, with a cigarette between her lips. Cars are left standing at the doors of libraries. On the cushions, a pair of gauntlets, a knitted beret, a bound book with the library mark on the back. `The road teems with adolescence and youth. But the colour of all the faces is always the same, fresh and clear, the colour of the student "Oxford" complexion.' 4


`FAIR HEADS IN LIBRARIES'

`A few couples of students : he fair, thin, with a canary-coloured pullover; she, freckled, with her hair flying round her ears, and slender ankles. The women students have left their boarding-houses, their quiet dining-rooms with the huge store of bright porcelain, their little bedrooms filled with light scent of soap and toothpaste, leaving in their hurry some pink undergarment on the back of a chair, or on their pillow, and have gone. They run rapidly in all directions. The afternoon work begins. Short greetings between girls and boys who cross each other on the road. A date flung out whilst speeding along. They will meet to-night, at six or seven p.m. The women students swarm with their straight single skirts, with their coats tight-fitting at the waist, up the stairs of the libraries, or walk gaily along the pavement. The whole town is in their hands. It is they who give Oxford life its tone. `In this atmosphere of school days, of marks, of exams which, together with a vague swooning feeling pervades the whole city in these afternoon hours there is a silence in the library. Fair heads bent over books, a glimmer of glasses, blue eyes the colour of an enamelled saucepan, a hasty moving of pencils upon note-books, the atmosphere of the whole town is strictly that of the class-room. One finds a strange pleasure in going along the roads of Oxford in these hours of the early afternoon when all are at their work. One walks with the pleasant feeling and with the slight remorse of one who has cut a lesson at school. Now and then a tapping of feminine heels. A girl hastens and looks round with the grey eyes of a cat in the solitude. Books and copy-books under her arm. 'At this hour in the lounge of the Mitre Hotel there may be an authoritative old lady, who has left her stick in the cloak-room on entering, awaiting the return of her daughter from the University.' `EVENING DESCENDS UPON THE HOUSES' 'In the streets the gay traffic of bicycles has again begun. The girls come out of the libraries and the class-rooms, pass like lightning, rapidly and alone, on their shining bicycles, their fair hair flying in the early evening breeze. `At the station a few girls wait for the train. There are couples walking slowly who let fall a word now and then—the town where girls live alone is slowly and gradually swallowed up by the night.'

SOME PROCEEDINGS OF THE ]SEARCH COMMITTEE, z934-5

O

Nthe recommendation of the Committee, Miss Mitchell's tenure of the Elizabeth Wordsworth Studentship, to which she was elected in 1933, was extended for a second year, and she has continued her study of the relations between English and Italian University 15


students in the fifteenth century. The Elizabeth Wordsworth Studentship, 1935, has been awarded to Mary Margaret Chattaway, B.Sc., M.A., who was in residence 1920-3 and was placed in Class I of the Honour School of Natural Science (Botany) in 1923. She was afterwards Demonstrator in the Botanical Department of the University and Assistant Lecturer in Botany at the Royal Holloway College, University of London; and is now Research Assistant in the Department of Wood Structure, Imperial Forestry Institute. Miss Chattaway will continue the research into the structure of timber, on which she has been engaged since 1930, and is permitted to retain her present or any similar position in the Institute if offered to her for 1935-6, subject to the conditions of Clause 5 of the Regulations for the Elizabeth Wordsworth Studentship. A grant from the John Gamble Fund has been approved as follows: to Miss 0. M. Griffiths, M.A., for expenses in connexion with the publication by the Cambridge University Press of her forthcoming book, A Study of the History of English Presbyterian Thought. Reports were received during the autumn from the Research Fellows of the College. Miss Ady's 'study in medieval despotism' is approaching completion. Miss Perham, who was not able to carry out her programme of farther African travel in 1934, has begun the writing of her book on African administration.

ST. HUGH'S CLU VERY successful Bridge Party was held on June 1st, 1934, at the Garden Club, 9 Chesterfield Gardens, W.' ; prizes for each A table were presented by friends of St. Hugh's Club. The dinner, held on October 5th, was also at the Garden Club. The chief guests were Miss Margery Fry and Sir Ernest and Lady Benn ; they were introduced by the Principal who took the Chair, and Dr. Peters, on behalf of the Club, thanked them. Membership of St. Hugh's Club is open to all old students and to second and third year students on payment of one subscription, a Life Subscription, of los. I. SHRIGLEY.

(Honorary Secretary and Treasurer.)

THE JUNI R COMMON ROOM rpHE academic year 1933-4 has been a most successful one. We

.11. record with pleasure the Firsts gained in Honour Schools by Miss Doveton, ex-President of the J.C.R., who is the first to achieve this distinction in Geography; by Miss Adam, the first woman to gain it in Physics; by Miss Hearn, holder of the Winter Williams Law Scholarship for women, in Law; by Miss Keay in Zoology; and by Miss Wallbank in Mathematics. We congratulate Miss Doveton, who has been awarded the Drapers' 16

.


Senior Scholarship of the University; Miss Adam, who has won a Senior Scholarship at Lady Margaret Hall; and Miss Thorpe, who has been awarded a Graduate Scholarship to Wellesley College, U.S.A. In addition to achieving academic distinctions, St. Hugh's has been interested in a considerable number of other University activities. In the Student Christian Movement in Oxford, Miss Foster succeeds Miss Hearn as President of the Women's Executive. Miss Manger is a member of the Council of the Inter-Collegiate Christian Union. In conjunction with the Mission held in Oxford during the second week in February, a meeting was arranged by certain members of the J.C.R. to relate more personally to ourselves its implications for individuals. St. Hugh's has its representatives in political affairs: Miss Harris has been elected secretary of the Labour Club, and Miss McKee, who recently had the unusual privilege of speaking at the Union, is a prominent member of the Conservative Association. The Debating Society has been exceptionally active, with a wide range of interesting fixtures, including a stimulating debate on the English Educational System with the Senior Common Room, when paper speeches were made by the Principal and Miss HeadlamMorley. The Dramatic Society's annual performance has been postponed until the Trinity Term; but its vitality is clearly indicated by its newly instituted play-readings and by the fact that it was responsible for a talk upon the Soviet Theatre by one in the unique and authoritative position of Miss Marie Seton. A 'cello and piano recital was arranged by the Musical Society in the Michaelmas Term, and its President, Miss Symonds, is on the committee of the Opera Club. The 'Cygnet' still exhibits the literary aspirations of the college. Miss Loveday is President of the Pentagon Committee again this year. An enthusiastically organized sale of home-made cakes, &c., was held in December for St. Margaret's House. The terminal dances have been enjoyed by members of the J.C.R. and their friends. The J.C.R. showed its keen interest in problems of international peace by electing Miss Gammack to be its representative at the AntiWar Conference held at Brussels during the Christmas Vacation. In games, the season has on the whole been a successful one. Hockey Blues are held by Miss Stevenson and Miss M. E. Stinton, and Miss Field and Miss F. M. Stinton are playing in the United Team. Lacrosse Blues have been awarded to Miss Kershaw, Miss Stradling, Miss Gibbons, and Miss Barrett; Netball Blues to Miss Smith and Miss Sherwood, and Swimming Blues to Miss Wilson and Miss Clark. The Inter-Collegiate Netball and Swimming Cups have been won by St. Hugh's, which has also reasonable hopes of adding the Hockey Cup to its trophies. Miss Hamilton and Miss Thom are members of the University Women's Eight. A. MARIE GRUTTER,

President. 17


A YOUNG ACTO 'S PR GRESS -11..T was not long before Hugo's outstanding success in the part of Flush last year carried him, as anticipated, to farther heights. The Barretts of Wimpole Street was included by the management of the Playhouse in their Trinity Term programme—largely, we believe, with a view to securing the services of this talented young performer who (it is understood) does not care, even in the interests of art, to be far from home. The same discretion, the same delicacy, characterized his delineation of Flush in this, as in the earlier and amateur performance. The latter, we learn, was commemorated by a gift of modish and inscribed neckwear in scarlet from fellow members of the cast ; the former by what is, we suppose, every amateur's secret aspiration—professional praise.
