REPORT OF THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE ASSOCIATION, 1941 'Flu Sixteenth Annual Meeting of the Association was held at

J1 Holywell Manor on Saturday, June 2 '1st, 1941, the Principal in the Chair. Seventeen members were present. The Chairman made her accustomed statement on College affairs. She spoke of the loss to the College sustained by the resignation, on her marriage, of the Assistant Bursar, Miss Maclagan, and by the impending resignation of Miss Salt, who during twenty-one years of devoted service had won the affection of her colleagues and of many generations of students. She also spoke of the acceptance by Dr. Ida Mann, University Reader in Ophthalmology, of the invitation to become a member of the College; this, it was expected, would be followed by her election as our first Professor Fellow. The election of Miss Moller as a member of Council for another term of three years was announced. The result of the voting was as follows: Miss Moller 115 votes, Miss M. E. Reeves 53 votes. The membership of the Association now stands at 594. Miss Herdman described the work of the 'Books for Prisoners of War' Department, Red Cross, over which she presides in the New Bodleian buildings. She explained the need for expert aid in the selection of books required for the various educational courses taken by prisoners of war, and asked for volunteer helpers. The Meeting was followed by a teaparty in the Principal's rooms. C. M. ADY (Hon. Sec.).

THE PRINCIP L'S LETTER EAR Miss Hamilton Thompson, Two elections to the Governing Body have taken place since last spring. On the retirement D of Mr. Adams, the University appointed Dr. Ida Mann to Margaret Ogilvie's Readership in Ophthalmology; and the College did itself the honour of presenting her for matriculation and, later, of electing her to a Professorial Fellowship. This is the first election of the kind in a Women's College at Oxford. Dr. Mann has had a distinguished career. Her medical career began at St. Mary's, and the following degrees, &c., have been conferred on her, D.Sc., M.B., B.S. (Land.), F.R.C.S. (Eng.). She has held the Henry George Plimmer Fellowship at the Imperial College of Science and the Mabel Webb Research Scholarship at the Royal Free Hospital. In 193o she was awarded a grant for seven years by the Medical Research Council for research into diseases of the eye, and in 1931 was elected to the staff of Moorfields Eye Hospital. She has been for many years in private practice and since 1939 has worked on medical problems connected with the war. She hopes to see great developments at the Oxford Eye Hospital and in the teaching and research carried on there, and has already proved a most congenial member of the 7


College. The second election was that of Miss Adam to an Official Fellowship. Miss Adam, whose tutorial position in the College dates from 1937, holds an assured place in the Faculty of Natural Science and is now, in addition to her teaching and Acting Directorship of the Observatory, taking part in some important physical research at the Clarendon Laboratory. A retirement has also to be recorded. Miss Wardale, Hon. Fellow of the College since 1929 and a member of the Governing Body since its inception 'for so long as she shall desire to serve', has found the effort of attending meetings so far from her home, and of taking part in our discussions, too fatiguing, and with great regret her resignation was accepted last term. She continues to take pupils for the various Societies and when I last called on her was just starting off for the Taylor, in very bad weather, to collect books from the Library. We entered on the year 1941-2 with more undergraduates than ever in residence, and have coped successfully with the many problems arising in present circumstances for all residential communities. The number of Official Fellows released to Government Service has risen to three now that, in addition to Miss Glover and Miss Gray, the Bursar has been asked to accept a temporary administrative appointment under the Ministry of Supply, and left us to take it up before Christmas. She is well qualified for the work asked of her, connected as it is with the provision and construction of hostels for factory workers all over the country. Thus in less than nine months the College has seen a complete change of personnel on the internal administrative side. Miss Cundall, appointed in the spring to succeed Mrs. Gough (Miss Maclagan, who was married at Easter) has now been made Acting Domestic Bursar for the duration of the war, while Miss Mason, to assist her, and Mrs. Mayne, to take charge of health, are also in residence, we hope for at least the same period. The College counts itself fortunate to have found competent successors to those who have gone; and Mrs. Gough's reappearance among us to give part-time help in account-keeping is an additional embellishment to the reduced S.C.R. Miss Glover and Miss Gray, whom we have welcomed to Council Meetings, appear to enjoy their present work and responsibilities. Miss Salt, who since her retirement in the summer continues to live at Dorchester with her sister, has often visited us, and presided as before over the White Elephants at the St. Margaret's House Sale—adding, as always, gaiety to the scene. Later pages of the Chronicle show that a considerable number of B.A.s have been added to the 194o-1 list of Temporary Assistant Principals in the Civil Service, members of the Women's Services, and those engaged in other forms of war-work. (The Russians, we are told, appoint female A.D.C.s to their High Commanding Officers as a matter of course. The one and only British example—of course Scots—plucked in her prime from the general body of A.T.S. Officers, is, as you will see, a member of the College.) The Conscrip8


tion Act has simplified things for undergraduates in that the responsibility of choosing the form and date of their contribution to the war effort has been taken from individual pairs of shoulders. We hope that those who matriculated before the Act will not be called up during their course, but in future, when making selection of candidates qualified for admission, the College will naturally view with favour younger rather than older girls. Official information has been received that interruption in the course of the current academic year need be feared by no undergraduate whatever the date of her birthday. As for the subsequent period, the Principals of the Women's Societies are convinced of the continuing need for well qualified women in the professions they have made their own, in substitution for men, and in the expanding Social Services of the country both now and in the future; further, it is impossible to staff certain of the latter with extremely young women. We are at the same time prepared to co-operate in any suitable scheme for combining University training with practical activity of some kind which will pave the way for usefulness in national service after the degree course has been completed. There is no idea in Oxford of a University course as a privilege only or mainly; it is viewed as an indispensable preparation for forms of service many of which are already short of the trained personnel they need. The College has now completed its scheme of war insurances and has prepared a provisional claim on what is known as the 'Hardship Pool', i.e. the reserved sum, deducted from the total of payments received on account of requisitioned colleges, and on certain other accounts resulting from war conditions, to meet cases of special loss put forward by Societies of the University. The College's financial position remains sound, and the conditions of life for undergraduates have been maintained at a good level. They have naturally been called upon to help in the domestic sphere, but not unduly, and their ready co-operation has been much appreciated. Fire Watching and Drill have been kept up, but thankful are we all that no emergency has called the hose and stirrup pumps into active functioning. The three Firsts in 1941 gave great satisfaction, especially as Miss Anscombe (now Mrs. Geach) qualified by hers for the award of the Gilchrist Studentship. She is now working for the degree of D.Phil. on a philosophical subject and is doing some teaching in the Faculty of Literae Humaniores, which has been seriously depleted by the departure of men. The Elizabeth Wordsworth Studentship, 1941, was awarded, on the termination of Mrs. Colin Hardie's tenure, to Miss A. A. B. Fairlie, B.A., who had been studying for the Doctorat in Paris as Zaharoff Travelling Scholar but was obliged to leave that University in haste and some peril in June 1940. She was permitted to transfer to this University and hopes to submit her thesis on L'element barbare chez Leconte de Lisle in June 1942 for the degree of D.Phil. The Mary Gray Allen Senior Scholarship was awarded to Miss J. M. B. Fradin for a second year and the Moberly Senior Scholarship to Miss J. Crum, B.A., who is engaged on 9


antimalarial work in the Chemistry Laboratory presided over by Professor Sir Robert Robinson. The seven houses in which the College community is now housed have taxed to the utmost our administrative arrangements; but the smaller groups of residents have in their closer mutual association with the Tutor in charge and with one another much to compensate for other drawbacks. Certainly our life offers great contrasts to the life some of us remember in the College's own buildings. But the difference in external things does not touch the inner realities of our fellowship. Overcoming difficulties brings people nearer to one another more often than it divides, and the reliance on one another's support and sympathy in each phase of change and in devising the best way to meet it, is a great enrichment of a Society. This I have felt strongly during the past year, and hope that members of the Association in their various vocations and ministries far and near have not been without the same blest experience. Oxford is now the home of so many activities of every kind that the number of senior members living in the place seems larger than ever before. Their visits, and those of others working farther afield, are a greater pleasure than ever, as is our now annual St. Hugh's Night Party held by the Warden's kind leave in Rhodes House. (Let me take this opportunity of saying how I appreciate the support given by members of the Association in all sorts of ways to our efforts on behalf of St. Margaret's House. The annual too which (irrespective of the J.C.R. Fund) the Oxford Committee hopes regularly to send to Miss Kelly was maintained in 1941, rather to our own surprise, and it was due not least to a number of unexpected gifts, cheques, and postal orders sent at the time of the St. Hugh's Day Sale and later.) Other opportunities for assembling together are provided, of course, by College Services in St. Cross Church at the beginning and end of the academic year and the Carol Service at Christmas time. We owe much to the Vicar for his ready co-operation in allowing us to arrange these Services. That we have been preserved for more than two years of war to continue our work uninterrupted is what we could hardly have foreseen some time ago. To 'finish the job' is now our concern, our privilege, and our duty, along with all other citizens of the country, and our share of it here—to help the young in their serious task of preparation by training and discipline for whatever claims await them in the unknown future—is an engrossing responsibility. May members of the Association continue to be as proud of their College as the College in residence is of them. May we be spared to continue helping each the other to rise to opportunity, and to strengthen one another in time of loss. I believe members know that at such times neither they nor those who belong to them are forgotten here. Believe me, Yours sincerely, B. E. GWYER. January, 1942. I0


EDITOR'S NOTE TT has been increasingly difficult this year to sort into their appro-

priate categories the various items of news, which have reached me in such welcome numbers from Senior Members. I have tried where possible to keep those appointments, of which I have full details, in the two sections devoted to 'Appointments' and Warwork', and have relegated to the section headed 'Other News', all items of interest of which I received either insufficient, or only general, information. I hope that those members who sent news which is not recorded in this number will realize that the reason for its omission is probably that it was recorded in the last number of the Chronicle. Such a large number of people this year sent in news, which had already appeared, that I feel a note of this kind is necessary. B. M. H. T.

JOINT SCHOLARSHIP AND ENTRANCE EXAMINATION November 1942

MHE authorities of St. Hugh's and St. Hilda's Colleges are IL anxious to prevent as much as possible the great waste of paper caused by the issue to one and the same person of the syllabus and forms of both Colleges, instead of only those of the candidate's first choice. Readers of the Chronicle are therefore asked to make known as widely as possible to parents, pupils, and the Heads and secretaries of schools that the syllabus of subjects and papers which may be offered is identical at the two Colleges, except that: 1. St. Hugh's admits candidates in Geography. 2. St. Hugh's requires two passages (prose and verse), instead of one, in the Unprepared Latin Translation paper and does not permit Greek Unprepared Translation as an alternative to Latin in this paper. 3. The set texts for candidates in English offering the 'alternative syllabus' will not be the same in the two Colleges. Candidates and their friends are therefore earnestly requested, unless there is reason to do otherwise, to write for the syllabus and forms of only one, viz. the first, or preferred, College; and to enter on the forms thus supplied, in the prescribed place, whether they wish to be considered for the other College if unsuccessful in the first. The other College will have full access to all forms on which this statement appears and to the accompanying information, letters, &c. The fees charged at the two Colleges for tuition and maintenance are, of course, identical. Unused registration forms and syllabuses no longer required should be returned to the 'second choice' College. II


NUFFIELD COLLEGE COLONIAL RESEARCH SCHEME N investigation into certain colonial problems has been inaugurated by Nuffield College, which has set up a committee for this A purpose, consisting of the Warden of Nuffield (Mr. H. B. Butler), The Master of Balliol (Dr. A. D. Lindsay), Professor H. R. RadcliffeBrown, Mr. G. D. H. Cole, Professor R. Coupland, Professor A. G. B. Fisher, Lord Hailey, Miss Margery Perham, and Sir Alan Pim. Miss Perham has been appointed Director of Research, and is responsible to the College for the whole scheme of research. On the economic side she will act more as the director of the group of researchers and general editor than as a participant in the research. Professor Fisher has consented to act as honorary adviser upon the economic research and has already given much time and valuable help in the preliminary discussions of plans and methods, help which will be all the more useful because he is in charge of the economic work at the Foreign Research and Press Service division of the Royal Institute of International Affairs. Dr. Richenda Scott is acting under Miss Perham as the organizing and editing secretary for the whole scheme. Eleven research workers are engaged in the scheme, among whom are an Austrian economist and two African post-graduate students, one from Cape Coast and Cambridge, the other from Achimota and Oxford. The inquiry is directed mainly towards certain territories in British Africa, but every attempt will be made to study the selected African territories in a comparative setting, and to treat them as illustrations of the general questions of colonial government and development. The main lines upon which research is being conducted fall under three headings. I. Economic Investigation. The object here is to analyse the nature of the colonial economies and their contact with the world economy, and to show how far and with what results that contact has been guided by official and unofficial policies. The two territories chosen as examples are Nigeria and the Gold Coast. These territories are very important both from the size of their populations and as examples of economic development by co-operation between Africans, the Government, and traders, without the intervention of European colonists. The choice was confirmed by the difficulties of colonial research in war time, since only for these two areas was it possible to obtain the services of students who had already worked in them and could return in the immediate future for further investigation. 2. Constitutional Study. A comparative study is to be made of the working of the various political institutions developed in the Colonies under British rule. Among other questions, that of their efficacy as a training in self-government will be considered, and also their relation to developments in the sphere of local government, 12


including that of the more traditional institutions under the policy of indirect rule. The general background will be given in a comparative and historical chapter upon the nature and genesis of Crown Colony Government. Lord Hailey has offered his special help in this part of the work, and Miss Perham, who has been working mainly upon tropical African questions for the last twelve years, and has visited some of the territories three times in that period, hopes to conduct this piece of work herself with the help of two research assistants. This study would carry farther the work already done upon tropical Africa by Lord Hailey, Miss Perham, and others. Apart from the practical value and interest of the work in itself it is felt that with the economic studies described above, it would form a useful contribution towards the general reconstruction survey. 3. Inquiry into Economic Organization. A third and more restricted subject is being studied for the light it may throw upon both economic and constitutional studies. A survey is being made upon rather general lines of the institutions, official and unofficial, through which economic policy is formed and executed. On the metropolitan side, this study would include, for example, the organization of the Colonial Office for economic functions, and the parts played by such bodies as the Colonial Development Fund, the Crown agents, the Imperial Institute, and the various Chambers of Commerce. The work was undertaken with the knowledge and approval of the then Minister without Portfolio, Mr. Greenwood, and is being carried on in the closest possible co-operation with the Colonial Office, and with the help of those connected with the administration and economic life of the colonies. An office has been opened at 72 High Street, where essential books have been collected and a few relevant newspapers and periodicals are taken. The work was started in July 1941, and it is hoped to complete it by the end of 1942. It is intended that throughout their studies the researchers will not only keep in close touch with each other but will draw as far as possible upon the experience of those who are or have been engaged in administrative and economic work in connexion with the Colonies. This will be in fulfilment of Lord Nuffield's intention that, through his foundation, practical experience and academic studies should be brought into partnership in the investigation of modern political and economic problems.

THE JUNIOR COMMON ROOM HE activities of the J.C.R. in the past year have been varied,

interesting, and not altogether unprofitable. The influence of the war is more greatly felt, and much of our spare time is spent in domestic work, working with evacuees, growing potatoes in the Parks, cleaning at the Radcliffe Infirmary, and similar tasks; and lately the members of the J.C.R. have entertained convalescent


soldiers from our own hospital in St. Hugh's. This term we have under discussion a scheme whereby every woman undergraduate does a certain minimum of National Service every week. This may take the form of training as air-raid wardens, fire-teams, or civil nursing reserve, as well as the more direct service of work in canteens, hospitals, and play-centres. Vacation activities have included nursing, tractor-driving, sorting of Post Office mails, milk-rounds, and all types of land work. Nevertheless, members of St. Hugh's continue to show their prowess on the games field. Two people were awarded cricket Blues, four more play regularly for the University lacrosse team, and two for the hockey, although the year's Blues have not yet been awarded. And squash still keeps its popularity among players of all standards, from the half-Blue to the merest rabbit. The O.U.W.B.C. braves the coldest weather, although opposing crews are not easy to find. St. Margaret's House was visited by several J.C.R. members last year and the Dramatic Society's production of Euripides' Trojan Women, in Dr. Murray's translation, and the Sale on November i5th, together with many minor collections on various pretexts, have helped to provide funds to carry on this most valuable work. Miss G. E. M. Anscombe, Miss S. F. De Sa, and Miss B. M. Y. Tyler deserve our congratulations for the attainment of Firsts, and also Miss E. A. Taylor, proxime accessit for the Cecil Peace Prize in 1941. At the same time our congratulations are due to Mrs. Cadogan (S. I. Zilliacus), whose daughter is the first child in the annals of the College to be born while her mother was still in statu pupillari. G. C.-J.

OBITUA1 Y ELSIE MAY DAVIES (nÊe OCKENDON) HE following words were written by one who knew her well -11- in her married life. Elsie Ockendon left St. Hugh's in 1933, and was appointed History Mistress at the Duchess's School, Alnwick, Northumberland, where she taught until Easter, 1936. She was married in June of that year to the Rev. Emlyn Davies, and spent the whole of her married life in Merthyr Tydfil, S. Wales. Here, in the midst of appalling distress, her wide sympathies had ample opportunity for expression, and she surrendered herself generously to the ever-increasing demands of an area blighted by economic depression and neglected, for all practical purposes, through lack of any creative political action. Her home was flung open to all who needed its warmth and its friendship. Unemployed men and women, visitors from various parts of the world, her college friends, refugees from Austria and Germany, young Nazis studying in this country, exiles from cruel persecution—all these, and others, she welcomed with customary generosity. On one delightful occasion a young Nazi was the guest of her home at the same time as a young Jewish refugee from Vienna, to whom she gave hospitality for eighteen months, and she always remarked how well the Nazis and the Jews got on together in the proper atmosphere! It was the creation of a wholesome international atmosphere which became the dominant passion of her life and she devoted herself, especially through the Y.W.C.A., to the fostering of international concord. In the summer of 1940 Mrs. Davies volunteered as an escort for children to any part of the world and was promptly accepted as an escort for Australia. She left Merthyr Tydfil on July 31st to take up a new appointment with her husband in London, but on August 2nd she was leaving for her duties as an escort. This task was fulfilled and the children were safely landed in Australia after a long and tedious voyage of sixteen weeks. Towards the middle of November Mrs. Davies and her co-escorts left for England via New Zealand, but on the morning of November 26th, 1940, their ship, s.s. Rangitane, was shelled without warning. Mrs. Davies was caught in the shells, mercifully losing consciousness immediately, and died in the lifeboat. Thus, at the early age of 29 years, she who had spent herself in the cause of international friendship became one of the victims of its denial. She would have chosen no other cause on behalf of which she would have more willingly or joyously 19


given her life, and the knowledge that the children were alive to further that cause would bring her quiet and deep content. Those who knew her best and loved her most will rid their hearts of all malice with regard to her cruel and untimely end. They will remember her gay abandon, her eager enthusiasm, and her joyous acceptance of any task, however stern, however exacting, and rejoice that in so short a time she fulfilled a long time.

NICKALLS, M.A., writes: 'I am in the same job that I was in, in peace-time—Daily Mail Staff Reporter stationed in Bristol to cover the West and South-West--but it is the same job with a very big difference. I am responsible for all news and propaganda stories for my paper in an increasingly wide area with all the problems of telephone communications and transport to solve by any means I can. I have had one office hit by H.E. whilst I was on the telephone and burnt down on top of me three hours later. My photographer and I smashed a door to get out at a time when the whole street was on fire. My second office was destroyed by H.E., but fortunately I was not in it. I have had incendiaries through the house where I live at a time when I was also on the telephone to London. As many of my staff-reporters and correspondents have been called up, my photographer and I are apt to get marooned in the black-out a good many miles from home. In these days the press comes in for a great deal of criticism, but few people seem to realize that reporters at present have to risk their lives to get the news as much as any soldier who may actually be fighting.'
