EDITORIAL NOTE

Nv

E regret that the notice about the Fund for a memorial to members of the College killed by enemy action 1939-45 in the last issue should not have been more conspicuous, and would direct the attention of members to the paragraph on p. 8.

REPO T OF THE TWENTY-SECOND ANNUAL MEETING OF SENIOR MEM IERS HE Meeting was held in the Mordan Hall, St. Hugh's College, on Saturday, June 21st, 1947, at 3 p.m., the Principal in the Chair. Twenty-three members were present. The Chairman in her statement referred to the election as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Mary Cartwright (1919-23) as one of the greatest distinctions hitherto won by a member of the Association. Other notable events of the year were the prize for an English Poem on a Sacred Subject won by Phyllis Hartnoll, the Newdigate prize-winner of 1929, and the appointment of Joan Sargeaunt (1922-5) as Principal of King's College of Household and Social Science (University of London). Among other appointments were Dr. Adam to a University Demonstratorship, Dr. Burbridge to a University Lectureship, Jean Telfer as Lecturer at Durham University, and R. M. Brook as Lecturer in Divinity at Derby Diocesan Training College. Miss Seaton, after twenty-two years as Tutor in English Literature, was retiring at the end of the year. The College, and in particular the English School, owed much to her wise judgement and high standard of scholarship. The Council had appointed Miss Mahood, M.A., London, as her successor. With regard to the annual election of a Member of Council, it was reported that after a ballot had been taken, it was found that Miss M. R. Glover, who received the greater number of votes, was not eligible for election. Her name in the University Register, since she resigned her Fellowship, was no longer on the books of the College, and she thus failed to fulfil a condition of membership of the Association laid down in the College Statutes. It was pointed out that other former Fellows were affected, if St. Hugh's were not the College from which they were presented for an Oxford degree, and that the Council would at the earliest opportunity consider an amendment to the Statutes which would preserve the connexion with the College. Meanwhile the vacancy on the Council caused by Miss Moller's retirement could not be filled until the next election. On the motion of the Principal, Dr. Ady was re-elected as Secretary of the Association for the years 1947-9. The question of a meeting of the Association in London in years when there was no Gaudy was discussed. Miss N. Moller agreed to approach Miss Sargeaunt on the possibility of forming a London Committee to arrange such meetings, and to report to the next meeting. Miss Gwyer reported that the sum of ÂŁ33. 6s. 8d. had been received so far for a memorial to members of the College killed by enemy action.

F

NOTE. Arrangements are under way for a Dinner in the Autumn of 1948, to be held in London, in connexion with new developments at St. Margaret's House. Further information will be available for members at the twenty-third Annual Meeting on July 3rd.

THE GAUDY, 1948 'THE St. Hugh's College Gaudy will be held from Friday, July znd, until 'THE July 5th, 1948. Instead of the usual Gaudy Dinner there will be a Reception with a buffet supper on Saturday, July 3rd. Invitation cards are enclosed with the Chronicle.

MEMORIAL TO MEMCERS OF THE COLLEGE KILLED BY ENEMY ACTION, 1939°45 WENTY-FIVE subscriptions have been received, amounting to T £49. 9s. 6d. At their meeting on February 7th the Committee decided to keep the Fund open until July r5th, as they felt that some old members might have overlooked the original appeal in the Chronicle. Subscriptions should be sent to the Hon. Treasurer, Miss H. Fiedler, The Lane House, Norham Road, Oxford.

THE P INCIPAL'S REPORT TN July last Miss Seaton retired from her Tutorship in English Literature .11. which she had held since 1925. Her many friends and former pupils among

the members of the Association will be glad to hear that she still lives in Oxford and is actively engaged in research on 'English Courtly Poetry of the Fifteenth Century'. Miss Seaton was awarded a Leverhulme Research Grant for 1947-8 and in Michaelmas Term Council elected her to a Research Fellowship for five years. This carries with it a seat on the Council which will thus continue to have the benefit of Miss Seaton's ripe wisdom and experience. Two other elections to Fellowships have been made : Miss Ida Mann, formerly Professorial Fellow, to an Honorary Fellowship, and Miss B. Kemp, Tutor in Modern History, to an Official Fellowship. Miss Mann was appointed Margaret Ogilvie Reader in Ophthalmology in 1941 and in 1945 became Oxford's first and, up to the present, only woman Professor. Last summer Miss Mann resigned her Oxford appointments in order to become Director of Moorfields Eye Hospital. A note on the career of this very distinguished ophthalmologist appeared in an earlier issue of the Chronicle.' Miss Seaton's successor as Tutor in English Literature is Miss M. Mahood, M.A. (London). Miss Mahood obtained First Class Honours in English at King's College, London, in 1941; she has held the George Smith Scholarship of London University and the Inglis Studentship at King's College, and obtained her M.A. in 1944 with a thesis entitled 'The Transition from Jacobean to Restoration Comedy'. From 1943 to 1946 she was Assistant Lecturer in English at King's College. Miss Adam has been appointed University Demonstrator in Astronomy, Miss Busbridge University Lecturer in Mathematics, and Miss Gray University Lecturer in Homeric Archaeology. In Trinity Term Miss Francis was granted a long-overdue Sabbatical term. During her absence Chronicle, 1944-5, No. 17, p. 3.

Mademoiselle Julia Bastin, Professeur Ordinaire de l'Universite de Bruxelles, resided for four weeks and took some of Miss Francis's work. Another foreign scholar who has visited St. Hugh's is Dr. Alice Kober, of Brooklyn College, who stayed in College during the Easter Vacation while working in Oxford. In spite of the austerities of English life, both these distinguished visitors seem to have enjoyed their stay with us, as we most certainly enjoyed having them. Miss Bickley has been granted leave of absence for two Terms and is now in America; she will visit Italy before returning to Oxford in the Autumn. During the last six months we have received a number of food parcels from America and Australia, some intended for the Senior Common Room, others for the College in general. Some of them have been sent by Members of the Association or former undergraduates now resident abroad, others by unknown friends. It is difficult to thank adequately those who have sent them, known and unknown, not only for the welcome additions to our diet but also for the thought and generosity which have prompted such gifts. The huts in the garden are now fully occupied by various University departments and, after a series of delays, the Maison Francaise has taken up residence at the Shrubbery, which was put in order and redecorated in the summer. The work of re-erecting the College bicycle sheds which were removed during the war is being begun. When they are finished it will be possible to dispense with the unsightly corrugated iron erection (a legacy left by the Hospital) which at present does duty as a bicycle shed. The next step will be the general tidying up and replanting of the ground to the north of the main building. The ornamental iron gates are already back in place. Since the end of the War the number of candidates for the Scholarship and Entrance Examination has increased very rapidly. Numbers entering for these examinations fluctuate and, as a rule, are higher when the examination takes place in March than in November. Before x938 the number of candidates entering for St. Hugh's as their first choice was usually less than zoo; from 1938 to 1945 the entries, with two exceptions, rose to between zoo and 250, but with the post-war years there has been a sudden and marked increase. In March 1946 we examined 404 candidates and in November 1946, 37o. Our entry for the current examination is 519, of whom over half are offering either Modern Languages or English. With such numbers the work of selecting candidates to fill about fifty vacancies becomes extremely difficult. All the five Women's Societies are experiencing the same increase in numbers and the same consequent problem. They have agreed, therefore, after careful consideration and discussion, on an important change to take effect from the examination for candidates seeking admission in October 1949. All five Societies will examine simultaneously in November for admission in the following October. The examination for candidates offering Arts subjects will be held in two groups: (t) Lady Margaret Hall and Somerville College; (z) St. Hugh's College and St. Hilda's College; St. Anne's Society will join alternately one or other group. For Science and Mathematics (for which subjects the total number of candidates is comparatively small and the examiners are the same for both groups) the examination will be a joint one for all five Societies. It is hoped that this system will result in a decrease in the number of candidates examined by each Society, as in the past an increasingly large proportion of candidates have entered for both the November and March examinations. With smaller numbers a much more satisfactory selection should be possible. 9


Congregation has this Term enacted legislation, subject to the approval of His Majesty in Council, increasing the quota of women undergraduates. The four Colleges will each be allowed a maximum of 18o undergraduates and St. Anne's Society a maximum of 25o. The total quota will thus be raised from 85o to 97o. Within this maximum are included graduates of other Universities reading for the B.A. or the B.Litt. degrees but not 'Advanced Students' working for the D.Phil. This raising of the quota will not, however, mean an increase over the number of women undergraduates at present in residence, since this includes a large number of ex-service candidates who are extra numerum. After 1949, however, few, if any, of these extra numerum undergraduates will still be in Oxford. Nor will all the Colleges be in a position to avail themselves immediately of the permitted increase. The policy of St. Hugh's is to accommodate within the College buildings all its undergraduates, with the exception of a strictly limited number of fourth-year undergraduates and those of mature age. The College buildings, including the houses, can accommodate at most 15o, ten less than our present quota. Lodgings for undergraduates are almost unobtainable, even if the College was prepared to put its surplus undergraduates out in lodgings. Until we can provide more accommodation by building—a long term policy—or, as a more temporary and limited measure, by securing another house, we cannot appreciably increase our numbers. Nor is it only a question of a supply of suitable candidates and rooms in which to put them. Other factors are also involved; the balance between the Honour 'Schools' ; the number of tutors and of administrative officers; the size of the dining hall and kitchen and the provision of public rooms; the capital cost of building and the revenue necessary to run and maintain new premises when built : all these require careful consideration. The College Statute dealing with the Association of Senior Members (Stat. XI) has been amended by the addition of a new clause (§ 13) creating a new category of Honorary Members of the Association. The Statute with this addition is printed at the beginning of the Register of Senior Members. Under Statute XI (2) membership of the Association is confined to those who either were members of the College at the date of the coming into effect of the Charter (1926) or else are graduates of the College whose names are on the books of the College and the University. A Principal or a Fellow who is a graduate of another Oxford College and who pays her dues or has compounded through that College ceases to be on the books of St. Hugh's on relinquishing her office, and thus ceases to be a member of the Association. Under the new clause such a person will then become an Honorary Member. Honorary Members will not be eligible to be elected members of Council (a function more appropriately performed by a graduate of the College) nor will they have voting powers, but they will receive the Chronicle and the Register of Senior Members, notices and agenda of Annual Meetings and invitations to Gaudies and other social functions. Provision is also made for the election as Honorary Members of non-graduate members of the Senior Common Room. Council is also seeking the approval of the Privy Council for another amendment to the Statutes so that in future the Principal will be ex-officio Chairman of Council. This important constitutional change is a logical step in the development of the College and can be effected at the present time without any break in continuity and without losing the advantage of the present Chairman's experience, since Mr. Veale, who himself proposed the change, TO •


is willing to serve on the Council for as long as he is asked to do so. St. Hugh's owes much to its external Chairmen and to none more than to the present holder of the office. Mr. Veale first became a member of Council in 193o and he has been Chairman since 1937• It thus fell to him to pilot the College through the problems and vicissitudes created by the requisitioning of its buildings. It was extremely fortunate for the College that during the difficult years of the War it had as the Chairman of its Governing Body the Registrar of the University. That its prosperity was neither harmed nor retarded during that disruptive period was to no small extent due to the Chairman's wise guidance. Mr. Veale has given unstintingly of his time and interest to the affairs of St. Hugh's and has seemed always at hand to help and advise in time of difficulty. The College's debt to him for all that he has done for it is incalculable and it is reassuring to know that we shall continue to have his advice and counsel in the future.

BENEFACTIONS AND GIFTS THE following benefaction and gifts have been received since the last issue of the Chronicle: From an anonymous donor, provision for a Scholarship of k4o per annum to be named the Ethel Seaton Scholarship. From Miss Sparks, two pairs of silver sweet dishes for use at the High Table. From Miss Seaton, an antique tray of Sheffield plate.

ST. MA GA ET'S HOUSE AST year St. Margaret's House launched its Extension Scheme to provide better accommodation for its club members and residents, and the work in 1947 has centred round the new project. Unfortunately we have so far been unable to obtain a building licence to convert the bombed factory into club-rooms, but the new house, No. 19, Old Ford Road, is in use, the garden tidied, and some expansion of our work has been possible. The Extension Scheme is also continuing to provide a valuable stimulus to club responsibility, and its realization is the chief concern alike of the residents, club members, and friends of the Settlement. As the financial crisis grew in the Summer of 1947 it became clear that all building, except of dwelling-houses, would cease, and it was therefore no surprise when the Ministry of Education asked us to defer our application for grant-in-aid and a licence for our new club premises for a year. As the delay has made the problem of house-room for our existing clubs acute, we then applied for a licence to do some temporary work to the bombed factory, and with the help of the Ministry of Education we have obtained a licence for ÂŁzso. The work is now well in hand, and by the end of March we should have a fine new games-room suitable for badminton for the Mixed Club, and for team and ball games for the Junior Clubs. The amount of the licence has restricted the work to a minimum, and the materials have largely been salvaged from other parts of the factory, but we are hoping the Mixed Club will do some decorations during the Easter holiday. The house, No. 19, Old Ford Road, is occupied by two sets of tenants, both of whom help with Settlement activities, and the L.C.C. Occupation Centre on the ground floor flourishes. We hope to make part of the garden available for it this summer. The II


Extension Fund has managed to keep pace with the expenditure on repairs and redecorations to No. 19, although these turned out to be considerably more costly than the estimates. We have also had to pay considerable sums to our architect and the quantity surveyor for the estimates on the Club Extension. These sums we hope ultimately to reclaim from the Ministry of Education, but although we have raised £1,308, the General Account is bearing the Extension Fund's deficit of £93. I is. 6d. The actual running of No. 19, Old Ford Road is paying its way and meeting the mortgage repayments on the cost of purchasing all the new property. So that, provided we can build up a large reserve in the Extension Fund, the permanent scheme can go forward as soon as the Ministry of Education sanctions it. The Extension Scheme has brought plenty of work and plenty of problems. But we are as interested in it as ever, not only because we need the new building so much, but also because it gives us all a clearly defined means by which to fulfil our common purpose. STELLA PENLEY

FOURAH BAY COLLEGE, SIERRA LEONE Miss L. M. DOLPHIN, M.A. (1929) writes: I am teaching at a College founded by the C.M.S. and affiliated, since 187o, to Durham University. The students include Nigerians and Gold Coasters as well as Sierra Leonians. My pupils are taking Latin in the Durham General Degree in Arts. Three are also taking Greek. Of these one hopes to go on to England to read for Honours in Classics : he has been given a scholarship by the Chiefs of the Ashanti tribe. The College is financed by Missions, fees, and a small Government grant. The local people, old students, and others have now launched an endowment fund called The Fourah Bay College Fund. Would it be possible to ask through the Chronicle if any old students would care to contribute? Contributions could be sent to me or to Dr. R. S. Easmon, Westmorland Street, Freetown, Sierra Leone. The College suffered from the war, when it had to give up its buildings which are still being retained by the Government, and move from one temporary home to another. Its Science and pre-medical courses had to be dropped for lack of a laboratory, and much of the equipment has been ruined by the climate, so that it will be a big expense to reopen these courses.'

A DISTRICT COMMISSIONER'S WIFE IN NIGERIA Mils. C. J. OLLARD (née Rachel Swayne) writes : It is very difficult to give an impression of this country in the space of an air-mail letter, but I'll continue to write small and try. At the moment we are on three weeks' local leave in the northern hills, having driven up the 600 miles in our own Austin car, so we had a pretty good view of the country as a whole. The North is entirely different from the South— particularly from the swamps where we have been—and after seeing these lovely hills and views—something like the rugged parts of the Lakes or Scotland—and revelling in a delicious breeze every day and having two or three blankets at night, one can't help realizing that the sticky humidity and complete flatness of Ahoada leaves a good deal to be desired: and I now see the point of the statement made to us that if we liked Ahoada we'd like anywhere in Nigeria! Fortunately we have been quite happy there: we are very fond of our house—a thoroughly bush affair really, long, low bungalow with 12


mud walls, thatched roof, and wide verandah all along one side; but it is pleasantly light with white paint and we look out on a green compound surrounded by a flowering hedge, and the atmosphere is much like an English country cottage. We are more or less surrounded by swamps, nothing but dark bush roads through dense tropical forests, very close and abounding with mosquitoes and other unpleasant species of biting things. But we've spent a large proportion of our time, so far, on tour and there are one or two quite attractive rest-houses in the division. We had great fun particularly touring by canoe at the height of the floods, when some of our houses were completely surrounded by water—outside kitchen, boy's house, and other conveniences completely under water, and canoes passing up and down all the time a few yards away! But on the whole, the rivers provide the only beauty in our area and we had brilliant tropical sunsets blazing all across the sky and reflected in the water, and I much enjoyed dining in the moonlight with the water lapping up to the walls. Some of the villages we go to are very remote and they haven't seen a European woman for goodness knows how long, so that the rest-house is surrounded most of the day by people just waiting to watch me! And if my boys don't happen to speak the dialect there 's no means of conversing with them and it is very difficult to get them to go away—a ridiculous situation. However, in most places I amuse myself while Christopher is in court by visiting the funny little bush schools and sometimes talking to them in the maternity homes (where they exist) and calling on the various mission folk. It's an entirely different existence, of course, from the wild rush of my past life, and it took me some time to get used to having absolutely nothing I must do! Sometimes I can't help feeling too that I'm not doing anything very useful as the climate certainly makes one grow more and more idle. But I suppose the most important thing one can do is to make as many friends as possible among the people, which I have tried to do in Ahoada, mainly via the Church. I attend the various women's meetings when I'm in the station and they love coming to call on me, most of them never having been inside a European house before, and being very surprised to find government officials who are Christians.

THE JUNIOR COMMON ROOM, 1[947 8 -

F

OR the first time since the war it can be said that the Junior Common Room really belongs to St. Hugh's again. Few are left who remember Holywell. Once again the College and houses represent a unity. The traces of separation, however, are slow to vanish from the community life of the J.C.R. Strange things happened to the 'custom of the Constitution' in the years away from St. Margaret's Road. However, those students now in their third year have witnessed a gradual knitting together, and it is possible to say that, in spite of difficulties, we know a spirit of unity approximating to that of pre-war days. At the end of the Trinity Term the J.C.R. and especially the English School sent greetings to Miss Seaton on her retirement and regretted that it was her wish that their remembrance should take no more concrete form. At the end of the same term Miss Collett also retired and the officers of the J.C.R., as many readers of the Chronicle will remember, sent out appeals to former students who had been at St. Hugh's during the fifteen years in which Miss Collett was lodge-keeper. As a result of this appeal and the collection in 13


College itself a pleasant informal meeting of the J.C.R. was held at which we were able to present Miss Collett with a cheque for fifty guineas and a readinglamp, with the good wishes of past and present members of the J.C.R. The societies are growing and flourishing. Undergraduates of St. Hugh's seem to be especially interested in those which are concerned with problems of to-day, whether national or international. A devoted but small band, under the I.S.S. representative, maintains a steady stream of parcels to the stricken countries of Europe, particularly Germany. The Dramatic Society was unable to produce a play last year owing to a very small second year and other difficulties but, at the time that this is being written there is reason to believe that it proposes to recover 'the rose that fell from its chaplet' by staging an ambitious production of 'The Antigone' in the Trinity Term. The present first-year students have just presented their Fresher Play, 'The Necromantic Don', written and produced by their Jubilee Scholar. The J.C.R. held two dances, according to its custom, one in May and one in February. Many undergraduates of St. Hugh's will long remember June 1947 for the gaiety of Commem.' week. The magnificence of the balls will not be repeated for some time, and it was as though austerity was relaxed for a fleeting moment to permit the present generation to see what Commem.' week used to be—and what it will be—like. The usual open night was again held on the Saturday before St. Hugh's Day, and the Organ Scholar had arranged a programme which showed that the standard of musical performance and appreciation had in no way fallen. A considerable number of students are going to London to take part in the broadcast by the Bach Choir at the beginning of March. A highly popular move has been the reopening this month of the J.C.R. shop. A good display has been achieved in spite of the difficulties of getting supplies. Thanks are due to those who are now running it and to Miss Martin who, in the onerous position of 'Senior member responsible', has given much sound advice. Any profits from the shop will be given to St. Margaret's House. Miss Penley came to College from the Settlement last summer and told the J.C.R. about progress there. Other visitors have included Sister Isabel, who gave an interesting talk about the need for Christian workers in North Africa, and Miss D. Burton and Miss P. Bennett, who came to assist in the work of the O.I.C.C.U. Mission. Great jubilation is being felt at the beginning of work on the new bicycle sheds—sorely needed after the depredations of the Army. The J.C.R. of 1947-8 offers its congratulations to R. M. Brooke (Theology), 0. R. Gee (Modern History), Jill Cousins (English), and Margaret Jacobs (Modern Languages) on their Firsts in Schools, and sends its greetings to all readers of the Chronicle. BRENDA M. HENDERSON

President, 1947-8

GAMES REPORT FOR 1947. It has been suggested that a Games Report would be of interest to old students. Such a report can, however, only be very general as, in the first place, no official records are kept, and secondly there have been few events of outstanding interest, since women's games are still in a state of gradual post-war recovery. After a considerable falling-off during the war, interest in games revived during 1947 in spite of the lack of facilities. As a result of war disorganization, much equipment was lost or fell into bad repair. These deficiencies are being 14


made good as fast as cost and supplies will allow. The tennis court at 'The Lawn' is being re-surfaced and the court at No. 8z Woodstock Road will be re-made as soon as the College can find contractors to undertake the work. There are some followers of almost every sport in St. Hugh's at the moment, although not in sufficient numbers in most cases to permit the playing of serious inter-college matches. It is hoped that hockey `cuppers' will start again in Hilary Term, and tennis and swimming `cuppers' will be held during Trinity Term 1948. In the meantime many informal games of hockey and ping-pong have been played against other colleges, providing much entertainment as well as exercise. The large increase in membership of the O.U.W.B.C. has made it possible to hold inter-college races in fours, probably for the first time since the College boat clubs ceased to exist. In the circumstances, those students who take their sport more seriously are obliged to play for the University rather than for the College. Three St. Hugh's undergraduates were successful in gaining 'blues' last year—Mary Whitcombe for cricket, Hilda Dailey for lacrosse, and Gay Sellers for rowing. G. M. S. Games Secretary

THE LIBRARIAN'S REPORT mHE Library now contains 24,000 volumes. The Annual Grant to the

I Library was raised in the Michaelmas Term 1947 by 25 per cent. to meet the increased cost of book production and binding. The Library has been fortunate in receiving gifts : from Dr. Ady a collection of music, chiefly for piano, which resulted in a new departure in Library policy in the provision of music, and coincided with the purchase of a nucleus music section (biography and criticism); from Lady Douie we received a collection of works on Italian literature; from Miss Fiedler a selection of her father's library, consisting chiefly in German literature and philology; from Professor Simpson a collection of mathematical books ; and from New Collection a collection of classical works. During the war we presented unwanted scientific books to the Prisoners of War Library, and lists of unwanted books have been drawn up and offered for bombed continental libraries. During the war also, when the students were living in seven different places, the Library bought many duplicates of much-used books : this innovation is appreciated by the students, especially in the larger schools. The cataloguing is now done in typescript. Reading lamps have been provided on all the tables in the Reading Room and Library with a consequent saving of electricity: these also are much appreciated by the students. New book-rests are being made of the same wood as that used for the Library furnishings. A new bindery has opened in Oxford, and the heavy arrears of binding which accumulated during the war are at last being made up. The following books are wanted by the Library but are unobtainable from bookshops: Brandenberg, From Bismarck to World War. Champion, Voltaire. Finer, Mussolini's Italy. Whitehouse, Lamartine, vol. i. P. K. H.-W.
