HOLYWELL MANOR, NORTH WING

now in the occupation of

ST. HUGH'S COLLEGE FOR the duration of the war the main buildings of St. Hugh's College have been allotted to Government purposes, and its resident members, both senior and junior, are now accommodated with a full domestic staff in two hostels of its own, in quarters belonging to Balliol and New Colleges and (a small number) in St. Hilda's. A few fourth-year or graduate students live with approved hostesses. Holywell Manor, Manor Road, where the Principal and the greater number of undergraduates reside, is an adapted sixteenth-century house of great charm, with wings added in the present century by Balliol College, thoroughly modernized throughout and possessed of a charmingly laid-out garden. Students' private rooms here and at Savile House, the smaller hostel near by, are equipped with every convenience. The College has fortunately been permitted to retain the use of its Library and the Librarian remains in charge. Similarly the University Libraries are open, and the Parks, women's swimming-pool, &c., are, as in normal times, available for recreation.

EPORT OF THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE ASSOCIATION, 1939 rr HE fourteenth Annual Meeting of the Association was held in -IL the Mordan Hall, St. Hugh's College, on Saturday, June 24th, the Principal in the Chair. The Chairman made her accustomed statement. The list of distinctions won by members of the College during the past year was especially long and varied. The Chairman also explained the emergency arrangements made for the College in the event of a war; the College buildings were requisitioned by the Government and other accommodation in Oxford had been assigned for the use of members of the College. The membership of the Association now stood at 208, a drop of three from last year. Lady Moberly's election as a member of Council for another term of three years was announced. The result of the voting was as follows: Lady Moberly, 82; Miss Cecilia Goodenough, 71. Mrs. B. M. Hamilton Thompson was elected as Editor of the Chronicle for two years. The following members were present: The Chairman The Secretary M. G. Adam W. E. Alder Barrett P. M. Allen G. L. Arrowsmith I. Ashcroft G. M. Baker F. M. S. Batchelor M. A. Beese L. Bentley L. I. G.

The Meeting was followed by a tea-party which, owing to the rain, had to take place in the Hall, and not in the garden. In the evening a Gaudy dinner was held at which 140 Senior Members were present. The toast of the Association was proposed by Miss M. Moller and replied to by Dr. Ady. Mrs. Niebuhr proposed the toast of the College to which the Principal responded. The Gaudy proceedings were much enjoyed, despite the inclement weather which made it necessary to substitute informal gatherings round large fires in the Common-rooms for wanderings on the terrace. c. M. Any (Hon. Sec.).

THE PRINCIPAL'S LETTER

D

EAR Miss Hamilton Thompson. It is a good deal less than twelve months since I last wrote to the Editor of the Chronicle, but you are wise to set us early to work, as readers will be more anxious than usual to learn how we are faring. The College, like many other places of education, has been through some drastic experiences since September ist, but has had the aid of the University in dealing with its problems, a special Committee of the Hebdomadal Council having been busy since well before the outbreak of war preparing for the contingency which has unhappily arisen, and acting for the University in all negotiations with outside bodies which desired accommodation in University or College buildings. It would be difficult to over-emphasize the part played by the Registrar, our Chairman, in the efforts of this Committee to do justice to all concerned. Mr. Veale's extraordinary powers of work, combined with imperturbable patience and tact, have been of inestimable service to the University, and not less to St. Hugh's, which has found in him an ideal protector and leader amid the quicksands of negotiation with a Government Department. Our buildings and grounds, with the exception of the 'Whitehead garden', the Lawn, and 82 Woodstock Road, with their two gardens, have been requisitioned, though actual occupation has been delayed, fortunately for the College. Time was thus vouchsafed for detailed adjustments, and thanks to the Bursar's organizing ability and the heroic efforts of our domestic staff, we moved into the quarters allotted to us just in time for the Michaelmas Term. There is much to be thankful for in the conditions we enjoy both at Holywell Manor, at Savile House, and at St. Hilda's (which has arranged rooms for thirteen of our undergraduates). Tutors, with the exception of Miss Francis, who presides over Savile House, and Miss Adam, in charge of the Lawn, are housed in 82 Woodstock Road. Their books and effects are compressed into a narrow space, but they are making the best of the business. The Bursar lives still in College, where rooms have been reserved for her, and spends much of her time interviewing and helping emissaries of the College's tenants. Meals are served at the Lawn. The College Library has been reserved and is open to members of the College every week-day till dusk, the Librarian remaining in charge. My own rooms at Holywell Manor are in the sixteenthcentury part of this most interesting survival of medieval Oxford. It was occupied in my student-days by the Clewer Sisters, but was bought by Balliol College not many years ago, two wings being added, every modern convenience installed, and a charming garden laid out—the special creation and care of Dr. Orwin, a member of our Council who, luckily for us, is also Fellow and Estates Bursar of Balliol. The number of our undergraduates is but slightly diminished, and there has been no question of reduction of academic or other staff. Plans have been laid, however, for a sharing of financial loss 8


between us all if any one of our number is called on for Approved Service at a stipend lower than that guaranteed for the College appointment suspended. This wholesome principle has been adopted also in the University. It will please readers to learn that since its migration the College has received some kind hospitality, mitigating in some degree the limitations under which it for the present lives. The Rector of Lincoln, with whom and with whose College we have links that need no emphasis here, invited us to assemble for our Commemoration Service on St. Hugh's Day, and for Holy Communion the Sunday morning following, in the Chapel there. The Chaplain, the Rev. Hugh Turner, celebrated and also preached for us, comparing to good purpose the Founder of his College and the Patron Saint of ours; the Principal of St. Hugh's (possibly 'making history' as the first woman to be so privileged?) read the Lesson from the Rector's desk; and a joint choir rendered the anthem. On the evening of November 18th the Warden of Rhodes House most hospitably permitted us to give an evening party in the Milner Hall, where, in spite of the black-out, of deplorable weather, and of an almost total shortage of taxis, a large gathering of both graduates and undergraduates of the College assembled, and heard a delightful programme of vocal and instrumental music from all 'years'. A touch of home was visible in the beautiful arrangement of branches of the famous vermilion berberis from the College lawn, which Harris had placed under the mantelpiece in one of the big blue jars from the J.C.R. The Annual Carol Service took place in Somerville College Chapel, where our organist, Miss Joy Parker, with members of our choir, had already given aid in a difficulty: this reciprocity of help in emergencies is pleasant to record. The lowering of our standard in music, which has so markedly risen of late years, for want of our own organ and music room, would be a sad effect of the migration, but there is no sign of it yet. Organ practice has gone on vigorously in St. Cross Church, by the Vicar's kind leave, and also on occasion (up till now) in our own Chapel, and in Somerville and Lincoln College Chapels. Difficulties challenge effort, and in this sphere by no means in vain. While on the topic I may refer to the new Organ Exhibition, as readers will be wondering what is to be done about it. We feel we must proceed for the present on the assumption that the College Chapel may be at our own disposal again next October; but candidates will necessarily be informed that arrangements are provisional and contingent on the advertised conditions of tenure being within the College's and the candidate's power to fulfil. Our academic record this year has been outstanding. Miss Pellew's First in Engineering Science, and her award of the Edgell Sheppee Engineering Scholarship, are precedents which delight us greatly. Miss Perham's election to the new University Readership in Colonial Administration, tenable with an Official Fellowship at Nuffield College, is equally a University 'record' among senior resident A2

women, and hearty congratulations came to her from friends of Africa all over the world. The College of necessity suffered loss in her inevitable resignation of the Research Fellowship she had held with us since 1930; but it may claim some share in the honours of her Native Administration of Nigeria, published in 1937, and at once greeted as a standard work on the subject. University Lecturerships were suspended on the outbreak of war. But for that the College would at the time of writing have provided four Lecturers, since, in addition to Miss Procter and Miss Seaton, whose appointments have been recorded in previous issues of the Chronicle, Miss Francis and Miss Headlam-Morley would have taken office in October as University Lecturers respectively in French and in International Relations. Another consequence of the war is that Miss Adam is now Acting Director of the Observatory, Professor Plaskett having joined up in September. Dr. Wrinch, to whom students of Mathematics have owed so much since 1925, has been elected to the Mary Carlisle Fellowship at Somerville College, tenable for five years. She will thus be free to continue the promising line of research which the Rockefeller Trustees have enabled her to carry to its present important stage: a great satisfaction to all who know Dr. Wrinch's ability and tenacity in the work to which she has dedicated her powers. Miss Busbridge (M.A. London), a member of our Society, awarded the D.Phil. in 1938 and the M.A. by decree in 1939, is now Lecturer in Mathematics, and will examine for and take pupils from the other Societies as required. Oxford knows her well, for since 1935 she has been a diligent assistant to Dr. Wrinch when both were in residence, and an effective substitute when she was abroad. The Yates Scholarship was this year awarded to P. M. C. Evans, B.A., who was in residence 1931-4 and read 'Greats'. She has since taught Classics and Divinity at St. Mary's School, Calne. Miss Evans holds the Scholarship until June 1940, when she takes her Theology Finals; after which there will be one more election under the same conditions of tenure. The appointment of the first holder, Miss E. V. A. Turner, to be Headmistress of the Surbiton Church High School as from September last, was a great gratification to the College. The Memorials to Miss Rogers, both in the College and in the University precincts, are now practically finished. The St. Mary's garden, which I mentioned to you last year, was dedicated in May, and was gay with flowers till late in the autumn. The Governing Body of the College has commemorated her by the enlargement and repaving of the central semicircle of the terrace, and the placing there of a fine old stone sundial, raised on a plinth on which are to be carved her name and date, and the verse `Floribus, Anna, tuis faveat sol Luce perenni', composed for the purpose by Mr. Myres. By a joint arrangement of the College and some of its members Fraulein Brigitte Wolff, for many years Technical Assistant in the Cancer Research Institute at the Charite Hospital, Berlin, was in I0


residence at the College for the Hilary and Trinity Terms, making a host of friends and entering into much that the University has to give to strangers. Her powers are now being tried at the Nuffield Institute for Medical Research with a view to work for the B.Sc. in some branch of her own subject, and if this course should prove possible the same and other friends hope to see her through. As there could be no more devoted potential member of the College than Fraulein Wolff, all hope that her association with us may culminate thus in her actual membership. The College received an invitation to send a delegate or delegates to the Tenth All-India Oriental Conference at Osmania University, Hyderabad-Deccan, in December,' and appointed Miss Coomie Dastur (B.A. Nagpur), B.Litt., a member of the Parsi community, whom we were very sorry to lose last June after two years' residence among us. That its Indian members should play an effective part in every possible form of useful endeavour at home is a cherished wish of the College; and recent history deepens it. We look forward to a report on the Conference from her pen. Our life has suffered far less disturbance than that of many in England, and the students have been free to devote themselves happily to their work. I am glad to say there is plenty of useful activity open to them in their leisure time. Members of the College have taken part in work at the Hospital Supplies Depot organized by Mrs. Lys at the Provost's Lodgings, Worcester College; and have `adopted', for purposes of aid in play-time, one of the schools sent here for safety from London. The Union and the political clubs survive; and better still, the Bach Choir, the Subscription and other Concerts carry on among members and non-members of the University alike their beneficent work. The moonlit 'High' and Radcliffe Square, with a star-strewn sky above, are a sight to dream of—none can lapse utterly into fatalistic views of man or of the universe who allows these sights to do their healing work within his soul. But we have something better. The 'ministry of reconciliation' of which the Scripture speaks is committed to Christian folk wherever they are, and is exercised in divers manners. Oxford is not behindhand in that movement of which the very acceptance of the challenge of war, and the spirit in which it is, thank God, being waged by our men and with few lapses pressed forward by our leaders, are themselves manifestations. It looks towards victory—but it also looks beyond. May God pardon all past errors and weaknesses, and bring to fruition our deeply felt aspirations to unity; and may we be ready for the surrender of aught required from us by Him in that sacred cause. For a profound analysis of what the present situation means and calls for I commend strongly the Christian Newsletter, a periodical leaflet inspired by Commander King-Hall's familiar example. It is the fruit of accurate knowledge and hard, consecrated thinking, very different from the 'wishful' or Utopian varieties still prevalent among us; and so cheap that (in spite of the said feature!) the Since this was written the Conference has been postponed. II


expansion of its sales goes up by leaps and bounds. Nothing could be a better tonic in these days for those of our faith, and we owe Dr. Oldham and his collaborators a deep debt of gratitude for it. That a year hence may find peace on earth and, whether that be so or not, that Senior Members may be happy and prosperous in their several contributions to the national welfare, is the affectionate hope of Yours sincerely, December, 1939. B. E. GWYER.

SOME PROCEEDINGS OF THE RE SEARCH COMMITTEE, 1939 rrHE 1939 elections were as follows: Elizabeth Wordsworth JL Student, Christian V. M. Lucas, M.A., Ph.D.London (Class I Literae Humaniores, 1932, Research Student, Westfield College, 1933). Mary Gray Allen Senior Scholar, Kathleen M. Reavenall, B.A. (Lady Margaret Hall, Class I History, 1937, Maude Royden Exhibitioner, 1938). Moberly Senior Scholar, Anne Pellew, B.A. (Class I Engineering Science, 5939.) Miss Lucas is continuing her study of 'The Cities of Italy under the Roman Empire'. Miss Reavenall's Scholarship was suspended at the end of the Michaelmas Term, as she was permitted to accept and hold for the duration of the war the appointment of Archivist to the Bedford County Council. The University having suspended for the present the normal regulations as to standing, she hopes later to complete her thesis on 'The Cathedral Priory of Worcester during the reign of Edward III with a Calendar of the Liber Albus' for the B.Litt. degree. Miss Pellew is following a course for the B.Sc. and working under the Professor at an aeronautical subject. She hopes in due course to proceed to the Farnborough Research Station. There were no applications for grants from the John Gamble Fund.

THE LI It RARY MHE books are being allowed to remain in the Library and are .1L accessible to the students during the war. The Library has only been open during daylight hours as blackout has so far been found impracticable. The Reading-room has been taken over by the Government, but the Stack-room and Unpacking-room are being retained by the College. Provision has been made for the protection of valuable books during war-time. They are packed in a wooden zinc-lined trunk which is being stored in the College safe. The five unique books possessed by the Library are being housed in a bomb-proof shelter at the Bodleian. 12


The total number of books in the Library is now 17,000. We have been as fortunate as usual in the number of gifts received. Professor Myres gave us the choice of a great many books from his library of ancient history and classical subjects, and designed and presented a delightful little book-plate. Miss Mary Dalston presented a collection of standard works on various subjects from her father's library, and Mrs. Buckler a choice of books from her collection on modern history and allied subjects. Fraulein Wolff, the German refugee student at St. Hugh's College, who is researching in magnesium metabolism in thyroid disease, presented a collection of volumes from her grandfather's library; these are chiefly standard editions of French classics and books on modern German history, and were sent over with some difficulty just before war began. Several of the gifts to the Library are the published work of members of the College. During the summer vacation, Miss Turner, Yates Theological Scholar, 1937-9, kindly spent a fortnight helping the Librarian to catalogue the theological books given and bequeathed to the Library by Dr. Selbie, Dr. Streeter, and Miss Yates. Visits have been paid to the Library by the following bodies: the S.E. Midlands Group of the Schools Section of the Library Association; the Conference of the Schools Librarians' Association, Oxford, 1939 ; and the Oxford Bibliographical Society, who paid St. Hugh's the honour of choosing their Library for their first visit to a women's P. K. H. W. College.

THE JUNI R COMMON R OM fl HE usual activities of the J.C.R. have been carried on vigorously

during this year. College societies have flourished, especially the Musical and Dramatic Societies. We have had several concerts from outside musicians, and on St. Hugh's Day, 1939, a musical entertainment was given by members of the College among whom the present first year took a prominent part. The talent of the second year seems to be mainly dramatic. The College play, Tobias and the Angel, was produced in the Summer Term with an entirely secondyear cast, though the two producers were both third year. The performance, which was given in the garden, caused much agitation for several weeks beforehand, the lighting arrangements being particularly complicated and difficult. The rain held off until the last scene of the last Act, and the Isis at least was kind to our efforts. A further dramatic effort was the comic entertainment produced by Miss Honour in aid of Basque refugees. It was given several times with great effect. As far as games and sport are concerned, the College has not distinguished itself in any remarkable way, for we lost all the `cuppers'. There were, however, three St. Hugh's people in the Oxford University Women's Lacrosse team, and four in the Oxford 13


University Women's Eight which won against Cambridge and London in the Hilary Term. Since we left the college buildings on the outbreak of war, the J.C.R. has been rather scattered and divided, but there has been no perceptible falling-off in our college activities. Having survived so far, especially in view of the rather unaccustomed and awkward state of affairs last Term, there is every reason to expect that the J.C.R. will do so as a whole until we are able to return to a college which, we hope, may not have been very much changed.
