EPORT SF SEVENTEENTH ANNUAL MEETING OF THE ASSOCIATION OF SENIOR MEM El': S HE Seventeenth Annual Meeting of the Association was held at Holywell T Manor on Saturday, June zoth, 1942, the Principal in the Chair. Nineteen members were present. The Chairman, in her accustomed statement on College affairs, referred to the appointment of Madame Gorodetzky as Yates Lecturer in the History of Russian Religious Thought for one year from October 1942. She would be the first woman to lecture in the Honour School of Theology. She congratulated Dr. Ady (Research Fellow) on being invited by the Council of the British Academy to deliver the Annual Italian Lecture on June 24th. She also spoke of the problems created for the College by the liability of women for government service and of the regulations made by the Ministry of Labour with regard to women undergraduates. The election without contest of Lady Moberly as a member of Council for another term of three years was reported. Miss B. M. Hamilton Thompson was appointed as Editor of the Chronicle for three years from 1941. Tea in the garden followed the meeting. The membership of the Association now stands at 612.

THE PRINCIPAL'S LETTER TN view of the restrictions under which our devoted Editor has carried out

this year's compilation, I am very grateful to be allowed any space at all. But it would be a deprivation indeed not to send this annual greeting to Members, who are now scattered more widely over the world than ever. 1942 brought letters from the Far East, the Pacific, the United States, Palestine, and Egypt; and it is with pride that I recall the narratives of adventure, escape, and active service that they contain. The safety of all Members formerly resident in Malaya and Burma has been a great relief. And the Chronicle safely reached a Pacific island! Meanwhile the work of the University continues, with a zest by no means the least keen among members of our Society. Difficulties are severe, but my colleagues, including the Acting Domestic Bursar and her assistants (with the 'old guard' of the Johnsons and our long-established senior maids) achieve wonders. Mutatis mutandis, all our customs are being kept up; and we are united to one another by closer and closer bonds as we cope with our problems together. Nothing can exceed the helpfulness of the men members of our Council in every potential crisis as it arises—whether of Civil Defence, stocks and shares, or the demands of the Ministry of Labour. Health continues good and the register of candidates for admission longer than ever. The Editor asks me to say with what regret she has cut down obituaries, the news sent in (and greatly valued) of senior members, and the particulars normally given with marriage announcements. Force majeure: all of us know the meaning of that. And all of us know what is stronger still. B. E. GWYER.

BITUA Y CONSTANCE HEDLEY ONSTANCE HEDLEY came to St. Hugh's Hall in Norham Gardens in 1896, and read for Honour Moderations in Mathematics, taking Groups afterwards. When she left Oxford, she taught as an Assistant Mathematical Mistress in several schools, of which Clapham High School and Abbots Bromley were two. Then she became Head Mistress of the Louth Grammar School, where she had a Boarding House. But her chief work was the foundation of the Chiswick High School for Girls, of which she was the first Head Mistress. Here she had scope for her special qualities, for the school was maintained by the Middlesex County Education Committee and was, like many others, a dual school. She built up a big school, her generous, warmhearted nature enabling her to overcome many initial difficulties, and she established good relations with the adjoining Boys' School. Miss Hedley possessed, in a very marked degree, the power of looking at her work from a distance and of separating the things that matter in a school from less important affairs. She experienced two great sorrows: the death first of her younger brother in the war of 1914-18, and later, of the great friend— a Head Mistress—with whom she lived. Miss Hedley faced her altered circumstance, after this second loss, with great courage, but it was a loss which had a permanent effect on her life. For the last twelve years she was in very poor health, but she never allowed this to interfere with her work while she was in office, and her cheerful optimism endeared her to all with whom she came into contact. Her health obliged her to resign her post as Head Mistress of Chiswick High School at a somewhat early age, but she

C

spent some time very happily in the Cotswolds, of which she was very fond, and during the last year of her life, she lived with her elder brother's family in which she was intensely interested. Throughout, her sense of humour and her readiness to see the best in everyone had a great influence on her companions. She will be much missed by all who loved her. B. M. S. DORA GABRIELLE ELGOOD (nĂŠe LAWSON LEWIS) D. G. LAwsoN-LEwis was at St. Hugh's from 1910 to 1913, reading French. During the last war she nursed in France under the French Red Cross until a bout of diphtheria forced her to give up this work. For a time she was on the staff at King's School, Bruton, and later was working in the Censor's Office. Soon after her marriage, in 1918, to Vincent Elgood, she moved to Harrow, where she lavishly spent her energy and interest on local social and welfare work. She was a lady visitor, and served on the House Committee of the Harrow and Wealdstone Hospital ; she was also interested in the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital of Great Portland Street and Stanmore. For many years she organized Flag Days in Harrow. She was secretary of the Welfare Sub-Committee of the Harrow Social Welfare and Comforts Committee, and did much work for the W.V.S., and for the Women's Section of the British Legion. As well as these, her more public activities, there were many other charities and organizations which Gabrielle helped. Once being convinced of the value of a cause, she became its staunch and tireless supporter. She was so publicspirited that, however busy with her own domestic affairs and local activities she might be, she could always be relied on to come to the rescue in time of need. She was intensely interested in her College, and was Secretary of St. Hugh's Club for some years. She was a staunch and loyal friend ; time and absence made no difference to her feelings. Whenever one met her, she could give news of old St. Hugh's friends and their doings. She had a seemingly unlimited capacity for public work and private hospitality, and never let the world see when she was tired. On the night of October 31st, 1942, she was working with her husband at Poppy Day organizing till ten o'clock. She went to bed, and died from a heart attack before midnight. J.

ANNIE DOROTHEA ROUNTREE DORA ROUNTREE came of a family well-known in Lancashire for its religious and social interests. It was in Lancashire that she carried out the exacting duties of superintendent of the Rochdale Welfare Mission, where her great gifts and high moral purpose were needed to the full. She was educated at St. Elphin's, Darley Dale, and at St. Hugh's College (1914-17), and, after a period of teaching at Kettering, went out to India to her brother (1921-2) during part of which visit she stayed with the Sisters of the Epiphany at Barisal in Bengal and Behala near Calcutta. On her return to England she trained for a year for moral welfare work at the Josephine Butler House, Liverpool, and subsequently worked at Stafford, Lewisham, and Stoke-on7


Trent, before going to Rochdale. Although her duties in Rochdale covered but a brief period, Miss Rountree created a marked impression because of her deeply religious character, which was reflected in all her social work. In May 1942 she had a serious operation from which she never properly recovered, and died two months later. BARBARA NICKALLS A VERY promising member of the profession of journalists was lost on April 1st, 1942, by the early death from pneumonia of Barbara Nickalls. She entered the College in 1920 to read for the Honour School of English Language and Literature, in which she was awarded a Third Class. After a brief period of teaching she found her métier in newspaper work and, in spite of bad health from time to time, advanced steadily as a reporter, finally getting a post as Daily Mail Staff Reporter stationed in Bristol to cover the West and South-West. Readers of the Chronicle will remember her vivid account of her life under 'Blitz' conditions in the much-bombed city. A contemporary writes: It was a great shock to see in the paper the death of Barbara Nickalls. Her very striking and forceful personality makes it hard to realize that she has died so comparatively young. At college one was always acutely conscious of her as she strode about with her long slouch and her loud voice. Always she was either in the best of spirits or in the depths of depression. She could be more charming than anybody when she wished, and yet she was often a little pathetic, she was so uncertain of herself, so much in need of help. Everything she did she did with great gusto—games, acting, dancing, and long discussions over the fire. Though very popular among the girls, teaching was not really her metier. She was too unorthodox, too vivid, to fit in with the routine and discipline of school life, and I am sure that her journalistic work was much more suited to her character. She had a splendid capacity for friendship and would do anything for her friends, and her going will leave a real blank among them. E. R. P.
