EPORT OF THE TWENTY-FOU19, TH ANNUAL MEETING OF SENIOR MEM E S HE meeting was held in the Mordan Hall, St. Hugh's College, on Saturday 18 June at 3 p.m., the Principal in the Chair. The Chairman began T her statement by a reference to the loss sustained by the College through the death of Sir Frederick Ogilvie, Principal of Jesus College. He became a member of the St. Hugh's College Council when he returned to Oxford as a Fellow of Trinity College, after the First World War, and was re-elected on his appointment as Principal of Jesus in 1944. His help and interest had been unfailing, despite his many other activities. The presence at the meeting of Miss Mary Cartwright enabled the Chairman to tender to her in person the congratulations and good wishes of the Association on her election as Mistress of Girton. Recent appointments reported were those of Miss N. Moller as Principal of the College of Physical Education at Wentworth Woodhouse and of Miss Ackroyd to a Commonwealth Fellowship awarded to members of the Home Civil Service for travel in America. The appointment by the College of two new lecturers was announced. Miss Chenevix Trench, Somerville College, in Medieval History, and Miss Wilson, Lady Margaret Hall, in Philosophy. A bequest of boo had been received from the late Mrs. Warner, in memory of her daughter Margaret, undergraduate of the College, who was killed in a bicycle accident in her first year (1936). Owing to the death of the last of her relatives who had a life interest in it, the residuary estate of Miss Catherine Yates would now pass to the College. According to the terms of her will this was left for the establishment of a lectureship or a Scholarship in Theology, preference being given to candidates intending to read for the Honour School or the Diploma in Theology. It was estimated that the College would receive not less than ÂŁ5,000. The Secretary reported the unopposed election of Miss Herma Fiedler as a Member of Council for the years 1949-5 z . Dr. Ady was re-elected as Secretary of the Association for 1949-51. Other business included discussion of proposals made by the organizing Committee for a dinner in London on 1 October 1949, and a suggestion that undergraduates of the College in their third year might be interested in the privileges and functions of the Association by means of a personal talk given by one of the officers. The membership of the Association now stands at 910. A very fine afternoon enabled the meeting to adjourn for tea in the garden.

THE GAUDY, x95o HE St. Hugh's College Gaudy will be held from Friday, 3o June until Monday, 3 July 1950. The Gaudy Dinner will take place on Saturday, I July, at 7.3o p.m. Invitation cards are enclosed with the Chronicle.


Miss Gwyer would like Senior Members to know 'that the Hillman Minx, towards the future cost of which they so generously contributed in 1946, has at last been delivered, after being on order three years and five months. It appears in every respect perfect, and renews her gratitude to all concerned.' 7



HERE have been no retirements of Fellows this year. The appointment of Miss Wilson, now Mrs. Warnock, as Lecturer in Philosophy, and of Miss Chenevix Trench as Lecturer in Medieval History, were briefly reported at the meeting of the Association in June 1949. Mrs. Warnock went up to Lady Margaret Hall in 1942 and took a First Class in Classical Honour Moderations in 1944; she taught for two years at Sherborne Girls' School, and returned to Oxford in 1946. In 1948 she was placed in the First Class in the Final Honour School of Literae Humaniores. From 1948-9 she held the Gilchrist Studentship and a Lady Margaret Hall Senior Scholarship, and worked for the Degree of B.Phil. Miss Chenevix Trench went up to Somerville College in 1942 and was placed in the First Class in the Final Honour School of Modern History in 1945 ; she was awarded the Gilchrist Studentship, and the Rosa Hovey Graduate Scholarship at Somerville College in 1946, and worked for the Degree of B.Litt. From 1948 to 1949 she was Assistant Lecturer at Nottingham University. During last Michaelmas Term our Bursar, Miss Mason, was given leave of absence through illness. The Assistant Bursar, Miss Menzies, coped most successfully with two people's work; she told me that many things had to be left undone, but such deficiencies were certainly not very noticeable, and to the onlooker everything seemed to run smoothly on oiled wheels. We were glad to welcome Miss Mason back, looking much better than we could have hoped, after Christmas, and she seems to be standing up admirably to the strain of College life and all the constant demands that lack of service, rationing, and controls make on a Domestic Bursar these days. Miss Gray, Tutor in Classics, has just been elected by Somerville College to the Woolley Travelling Fellowship in Archaeology for the year 1950-1. The Council is granting Miss Gray Sabbatical leave for Trinity Term 1951, and she will visit the Near East both during this coming Long Vacation and during the Spring and Summer of 1951. Her plans include visits to Greece, Smyrna, and Cyprus. The London dinner agreed on at the last Annual Meeting of the Association duly took place on x October 1949 in the newly redecorated rooms of the Mayfair Catering Company. The dinner was attended by sixty senior members, most of them living in or near London. It was a great success, and there is no doubt that those who attended it enjoyed themselves. If, as I hope, the dinner becomes a biennial event, taking place in the year in which there is no Gaudy, I would suggest an alteration in date. The first week-end in October is, for various reasons, inconvenient for many people. The College already circularizes all the members of the Association twice every year, and to undertake to do so for a third time, in the Long Vacation, is not really practicable. If the dinner were held at the end of June, or early in July, it would be possible for the notices to be sent out with the Chronicle, as are the invitations to the Gaudy, and this would greatly decrease the clerical work involved. This matter of date is a question which might be discussed at the Annual Meeting of the Association this summer; as there will be a Gaudy this year there is likely to be a good attendance at the Meeting. Two benefactions are reported elsewhere in this issue of the Chronicle, but they require some additional comment. The gift from an anonymous donor of 4Ix,oco, together with securities to the value of ÂŁ3,500, is a truly munificent gift, and one of the largest the College has received. The securities have been 8

added to the Endowment Fund and the kr r,000 has been paid into the Building Fund, which is intended not only for future building, but also for the purchase of freehold or leasehold properties required by the College in its plan for future development; the allocation of the gift to this Fund is in accordance with the express wishes of the donor. The Lioo legacy from the late Mrs. Warner has been invested for the Library Fund, and the interest will be used annually to purchase a book or books in memory of Margaret Le Talle Warner, Mrs. Warner's only daughter, who was killed in a bicycling accident in May 1936, during her first year as an undergraduate at St. Hugh's College. The College does not yet know what sum it will receive as residuary legatee from the Yates's Estate. The memorial to the six senior members of the College killed by enemy action during the war will take the form of a bronze plaque to be placed in the Chapel; the lay-out of the names has been approved, and the work has been put in hand. This term the number of undergraduates in residence is 165, of whom 18 are living in lodgings or at their own homes in Oxford. Only undergraduates over the age of 23 (mostly graduates of other Universities, or ex-service undergraduates) and those in their fourth year are in lodgings; the rest are all accommodated in the College itself or in the adjacent College houses. Only 4 of the present undergraduates are ex-service candidates, and they will complete their courses this summer. No undergraduate matriculated after this (Hilary) Term can claim the privileges of War Service, and the various special War Examinations are one by one disappearing. Most 'Sections' have already been abolished and the rest will be withdrawn after this year; December `Schools' have been held for the last time, and Shortened Final Honour Schools will be withdrawn after Trinity Term 1951. Tutors and Examiners will view the disappearance of these War Examinations without regret. Pass Moderations, suspended in 194o, still slumbers in the Limbo of half-forgotten things, neither revived nor abolished, while its place as a First Public Examination is now taken by numerous Preliminary Examinations, each appropriate to a single Honours School. After next year the Honours Schools will be increased in number to fifteen by the addition of Music. The singularly infelicitous arrangement by which undergraduates reading Music have hitherto combined a Pass B.A. with the B.Mus. will now cease; instead, they will read for the new Final Honour School of Music for the B.A., and the B.Mus. will become a post-graduate degree to be taken only by those who have already obtained high honours in the Final Honour School of Music. This should prove a much more workable arrangement and should benefit the study of music in Oxford. February, 195o

benefactions and gifts have been received since the last issue of

ST. MA In GARET'S HOUSE INETEEN HUNDRED AND FORTY-NINE was the year of St. Margaret's House Diamond Jubilee. This meant that we had some special N Jubilee activities superimposed on our normal programme. We also took over some fresh work during the year, which altogether was a very busy and happy one. The Diamond Jubilee was commemorated by a special Thanksgiving Service in our Parish Church, and by a dramatic entertainment at the Town Hall. The entertainment consisted of songs and scenes from life in Bethnal Green during the past sixty years, and was much enjoyed by both audience and performers. To mark the Jubilee Year, St. Margaret's Council launched a special appeal for a Jubilee Fund, to be used for our Extension Scheme. This has realized over ÂŁ415. It is a great pity that the Government's economy measures have again prevented us from beginning work on the permanent building, but we shall need very considerable funds when we do start, so the &I5 is a real encouragement. Apart from our special festivities, 1949 brought the usual volume of work. In the clubs the steady development of the Anson (Mixed Senior) Club in responsibility and self-government has been gratifying. The Youth Club, too, in spite of occasional outbreaks of toughness, is doing well, but it suffers much from the lack of adequate premises, which makes it almost impossible to develop crafts for either sex. Lack of space has affected the Junior Club and Playcentres less. There the problem is how to find suitable volunteers from 4.30 or 5 p.m. The Women's and Old Age Pensioners' Clubs have been very well attended, and we are hoping to arrange a number of holidays for them this summer, both through the Women's Holiday Fund and privately to Miss Barbara Murray, an old friend of St. Margaret's, who has taken a cottage in Sussex, as an 'open house' for Bethnal Greeners. During the year we have been able to appoint a member of St. Margaret's staff as the resident social worker on the Minerva L.C.C. Housing Estate. This has proved a difficult but interesting project. Playcentre groups and a Mothers' Club have been started, and the Resident Worker has got to know many of the families and been able to help them in a variety of ways. A stimulus to our interest in the welfare of old people in the Borough was given by the appointment of Miss Marjorie Watkins, the Secretary of our Citizens' Advice Bureau, as the (part-time) Old People's Welfare Officer. This has entailed the supervision of four Old People's Clubs and the recruitment of an additional member of staff. The work is proving interesting and very well worth while. The Citizens' Advice Bureau dealt with over 3,900 calls in the year. Many of the problems brought dealt with housing and personal problems of a very difficult nature, requiring both technical knowledge and a real understanding of people. The Bethnal Green Borough Council has just increased its grant towards the cost of the Citizens' Advice Bureau, which should mean we are able to develop it as a fundamental part of our work. So in spite of the enforced delay in getting the Club Extension, there has been much to encourage us in the past year, and we look forward to the future with confidence. STELLA PENLEY

THE J.C.R. REPORT, 1949-5o HE J.C.R. has been occupied this year with the usual full programme of activities at home and outside. We have established, in addition to the flourishing J.C.R. shop, a private milk scheme run by members on a sound business basis. Profits from the shop amounting to £6 were sent this Term to St. Margaret's House. J.C.R. finance has also been sufficiently prosperous to buy the much-desired picture, a landscape by Peter Piper, which now hangs in the Common Room. The St. Margaret's House Sale held in the Michaelmas Term was more than usually successful, and realized £121. The Carol Service also in the Michaelmas Term was well attended, and the Choir gave a delightful selection of carols under the guidance of the organist Miss Whiteley. The Hertford—St. Hugh's Choral Society has maintained its reputation for enterprise by a lively performance in the Trinity Term of Gilbert and Sullivan's Princess Ida. Study groups with Bishop Hone have been meeting regularly throughout the year. During the University Mission Week this Term members of the J.C.R. organized competent discussion groups and held tea-parties for the visitors. A J.C.R. dance was held in the Michaelmas Term, but there was not enough support to hold one this Term. Plans are under discussion for holding only one in the year in future and attempting a higher standard of entertainment. In the dramatic world members of the J.C.R. have distinguished themselves in many of the College and University productions. A successful Fresher's Play written by one of their number was produced in the Michaelmas Term. Two formal debates have been held with the St. John's College Debating Society. Members of St. Hugh's J.C.R. have also taken part in the work of the O.U. Women's Debating Association, begun in the Michaelmas Term. Academic distinction was won by Joan Haworth with First Class Honours in the English School and the award of the Hurry Prize. Helen Wallis was elected to the Mary Gray Allen Senior Studentship. Altogether we hope our time has been not altogether wasted since our last report, and we look forward to an equally busy year to come.



GAMES REPORT, i949-5o URING this period interest in such sports as hockey, netball, and D lacrosse have not been as great as could be desired. More and yet more members are being absorbed in such activities as squash, tennis, and sailing. So much so that the demand for squash courts cannot be met during the time they are available to the College. The number of members playing has made it possible to hold a squash tournament, won by Ann Ritchie. Both Miss A. Ritchie and Miss J. Cooper, who only started this (Hilary) Term, have reached a high enough standard to qualify for the University squash ladder. A few hockey matches have been played, but in `cuppers' we lost to Lady Margaret Hall. There has been some discussion concerning the revival of II

lacrosse `cuppers'. St. Hugh's were unable to raise a team, but we have two blues, Miss M. Keene and Miss B. West. In the netball `cuppers' we have beaten Somerville, and have yet to meet St. Hilda's, the stronghold of the University netball team. The active interest shown by St. Hugh's in the Boat Club has been maintained. We can boast of being the one College which, during the season, have put an 'eight' on the river. We have three rowing blues, Miss M. Curzon, Miss D. Hunter, and Miss H. Marsh. Owing to the state of the river, freshers' `fours' have been postponed until the Trinity Term. During the summer many informal, but enjoyable games of tennis were played against men's Colleges. Unfortunately the College lost to St. Anne's in `cuppers'. This was compensated for by the winning of swimming `cuppers'. We had amongst us a high percentage of swimming blues, Miss P. Uhde, Miss V. Trueman, Miss P. Shields, and Miss M. Keene. Altogether there is quite a lively interest in sport within the College. MARY KEENE Games Secretary

first Yates Scholar in Theology elected by the College (1937), died after a long period of uncertain health, and a short one of happy marriage, in 1948, leaving a gap keenly felt by a large circle. She was a graduate and M.A. of Sheffield University with First Class Honours in French and English, and had taught successfully for several years in Schools of high standing. She threw herself with enthusiasm into Oxford life, and proved a sound student of her new subject, graduating with a good Second Class in 1939. She was at once appointed Headmistress of Surbiton Church High School, where her 15

leadership and influence are still affectionately remembered. The severe strain of the war in that part of southern England proved too much even for her courageous spirit, and a weakened physique enforced her retirement in 1944. In addition to great natural charm, disposition, and dignity of address, Vera possessed in a remarkable degree strength and depth of character, issuing in considerable power and sanctified by Christian grace. During the latter years of her life she followed the Rule of the Third Order of the Anglican Franciscans, finding in it strength and guidance in prolonged weakness and suffering. She was very proud of her membership of the College, and her many friends in our Society cherish equally the memory of so blest a spirit, all too early taken from among us. B. E. G.
