ANNUAL MEETING OF THE ASSOCIATION OF SENIOR MEMBERS

T

HE forty-third Annual General Meeting of the Association of Senior Members was held in the Mordan Hall on Saturday, 6 July 1968, at 3 p.m., the President, Miss Sargeaunt, in the Chair. One hundred and thirty-seven members were present. The President called on the meeting to stand in memory of those who had died during the year. The Minutes of the last Meeting, having been reported in the Chronicle, were taken as read, and signed. The President's Report. Miss Sargeaunt said she was first of all delighted that so many people had turned up for the Meeting in this Gaudy Year. She had already been sitting in the garden on the bench kindly given to the College by old students of the years 1921-4 for which all were most grateful, and she hoped that everyone would have an opportunity, as her old gardener at Queen Elizabeth College used to say, 'to see it in the situ'. There was not a great deal to report. The Committee was working smoothly and were delighted that Miss Betty Ackroyd and Miss Helen Wallis had consented to speak at the Gaudy Dinner. The financial affairs of the Association seemed fairly satisfactory and so far the cost of running the Association was being covered by fees and Life Membership. The only larger expenditure envisaged during this year was the binding of the Chronicle. She thought members would like to know that Bodley had asked for copies, which go back to 1927. The President then said that there would be some changes on the Committee this year, four members being due for retirement, but also for re-nomination and there had been other nominations received. The Hon. Secretary was retiring and in this context the President thanked Mrs. Hemming most warmly for her help and support during the past two years. The Election of Officers would be held later on in the afternoon, and the President said she therefore had no further comments and was sure all present were waiting to hear the Principal's Report. The Principal's Report. The Principal began by saying she was very surprised that the Chronicle was not already in the Bodleian. Should it not also be sent to the British Museum and Cambridge? The building programme had now been completed and it was to be hoped that the two buildings would be admired for their different individual merits. The formal opening of Wolfson Building on 14 May by Princess Alexandra was a delightful occasion in spite of imperfect weather, and St. Hugh's felt superior to other women's colleges where the Queen only spent a quarter of an hour while Princess Alexandra was in College for a large part of the day talking to undergraduates, dons, and dignitaries. The Chancellor of the University and Sir Issac Wolfson were also present and in great form. As a result of the two new buildings, there were now 244 out of 270 undergraduates in residence, and of the 26 not in College itself, 15 were fourth-years or third-years preferring to live out. There was also a new departure this year in the form of graduate houses. Three leases of the Canterbury Road houses had

7


been acquired for 197o for graduate accommodation with a Middle Common Room, and had been completely booked up for the following year. The Principal said she had to confess to a debt of £55,000, to be repaid over twenty years. She said that a new appeal was being sent to everybody as 1,184 old students had still not contributed. She thought people might feel diffident at giving small amounts but assured members that every little bit really did help, and this really would be the last appeal; no further building would be undertaken until the debt had been demolished. Turning to St. Hugh's itself, the Principal reported that there were two new Tutors—Miss Gillian Murray, Tutor in Physics, originally Leverhulme Research Fellow, who was now getting married, and Mrs. Lunn, Tutor in Mathematics. She was originally Shell Lecturer and would be appointed Fellow and Tutor next term. The number of Lecturers had grown, Mrs. Barber, Miss Syfret, and Dr. Clare Lampel, and there was a second Lecturer in Jurisprudence, Mr. Roy Stuart. Dr. Kenyon said she hoped that the growth in numbers had slowed down, but this depended on the policy of the University. A great deal was still being heard about the recommendation of the Franks Commission. The independence of Colleges was stressed, but this was not so easy for the poorer ones (which included all the women's colleges) if they did not have comparative endowments. There was now, however, a College Contributory Scheme aimed at bringing all up to the level of £600,000. The Principal ended by referring to the pristine appearance of the Front Hall of the College, mentioning especially the new doors given by a Senior Member. Although some undergraduates had queried this, she assured the Meeting that the re-decoration had been done in time for, and not because of the visit of Princess Alexandra. The Bursar had taken an immense amount of trouble to achieve the result seen today. The Principal said she did not propose to enumerate College successes as she would be including these in her speech at the Gaudy Dinner, and on this subject she wondered if there was not an alternative solution to the Principal being required to speak twice in one day ? The President thanked the Principal for her interesting review. Mrs. O'Dell then asked if the New Building was to have a name. The Principal replied that it was to be called New Building. The Meeting was again reminded by Miss Lemon that there would be a reminder with the 1969 Chronicle that the Address List would be sent out in 197o only on prior payment of five shillings. Election of Officers. Miss Sargeaunt was re-elected President for a further term of two years, Mrs. Cockshoot, Hon. Secretary and Miss Lemon, Editor of the Chronicle. There were eight nominations for the Committee and for the four vacancies the following were elected: Mrs. J. Pusey, Miss B. Cowderoy (re-elected), Miss A. C. Percival and Mrs. J. Hemming. Other Committee members remaining were: Miss I. Sims, Miss S. F. Stallman, Mrs. D. L'Estrange Malone, Mrs. J. Green and Miss Beere (co-opted). This ended the business of the Meeting.

SHERRY PARTY, 1969 SHERRY Party for members of the Association will be held on Friday, 26 September 1969, 5.30-7.30 p.m., in the Atkins Building, Queen A Elizabeth College, Campden Hill Road, by kind permission of the Principal, Dr. K. G. Denbigh, F.R.S. Full particulars will be found on a slip enclosed with the Chronicle.

GAUDY, 1968 HIS year was the first occasion on which I had been able to arrive in College as early as the Friday. The smaller number of Senior Members foregathered enabled the different generations to meet, meander, and murmur in the more relaxing atmosphere before the main influx. The Buttery was a popular meeting place during Friday evening and Saturday morning, and a steady stream of callers visited contemporaries who had rooms in Wolfson Building. By lunchtime on Saturday, travellers from further afield had arrived (making 225 of us in all) and the Association meeting in the Mordan Hall was well attended. Elections for the newly formed Senior Members' Committee were held, and Miss Sargeaunt was re-elected as President, a result which was announced after the Dinner. This year's Gaudy was warmed by a welcome return of emphasis from the `fabric' to the 'family' of St. Hugh's. After half a decade of raising funds and bricks and mortar to provide the New and Wolfson Buildings, these are now complete and fast becoming an integral part of what the Press has adjudged `one of the best kept gardens in Oxford'. At last College could enjoy tea in that garden, and the fine weather that blessed the weekend. Amongst the seats in the garden, there was a new one presented by the 1921-4 generation, a gift that was gratefully acknowledged both by the Principal, on behalf of the present College, and by Miss Sargeaunt, on behalf of the Senior Members. Before Dinner, members met for sherry in the Mordan Hall, and there followed an excellent meal, served with professional speed and skill. When the time came for speeches, whilst one speaker expressed for all of us the debt we feel to St. Hugh's for the years spent at Oxford, and another looked to the roles that present and future students will be called upon to play in the world and the changing University order, for me the Gaudy will be linked with the British Museum! Miss Helen Wallis, recently appointed Supervisor of the Map Room and a Deputy Keeper, gave a lively outline of the position of women in public life and the Museum since the eighteenth century. Female appointments now must surely owe much to the persistence of ladies of leisure in the pursuit of knowledge, however much the 'rustling of their silks and other things' annoyed men! Miss Sargeaunt replied to the Toast 'The Association of Senior Members.' Miss E. Ackroyd, proposing the Toast to 'The College', referred to the Chronicle, which is now to be sent, by request, to the British Museum. It is a gratifying, if somewhat sobering, thought that our achievements and those of our successors will be enshrined in British history!

In reply, the Principal told us of her own and her sister's early 'freedom of the iron galleries' and of the present controversy over the British Museum site. Recent College history has included a Royal Horticultural Society Award to St. Hugh's Head Gardener and the election of the first woman President of the Union. Miss Kenyon looked forward to a vigorous and distinguished future for St. Hugh's, confident that this could be entrusted to the present lively and talented generation. A popular innovation at this year's Gaudy was the invitation by the Committee of the Association to wine in the J.C.R. after dinner. This had the advantage of keeping people together, making it easier to track down those whom one had not seen earlier! Reminiscence and revelation with particular friends in rooms was by no means ousted, however, merely postponed, and few lights were out before 2 a.m. For many, the Gaudy ended on Sunday morning, when we again walked across the garden, past the tulip tree in flower, to the Principal's Lodgings. Let us here express our thanks to the Principal and Fellows and to all who contributed to what was said on all sides to have been a most enjoyable weekend. Members would especially wish to thank Miss Major and her staff and Mrs. Hemming who was Secretary of the Association at that time. But for me, a fitting, final memory of the weekend is of the crowded congregations in Chapel for Evensong on Saturday and at Communion on Sunday morning. No words could better express the corporate spirit which links the generations of St. Hugh's and which is so much the essence of the Gaudy. Gaudeamus!

THE PRINCIPAL'S REPORT HE expansion of the College buildings has formed the most important 1. theme of my reports since, I think, my first one for 1962. The culmination of the building programme came with the opening of Wolfson Building by Her Royal Highness the Princess Alexandra on Tuesday, 14 May. Her Royal Highness was received on arrival by the Lord Lieutenant, Colonel John Thomson, who presented the Lord Mayor and civic dignatories and then by the Chancellor, the Rt. Hon. Harold Macmillan, who presented the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors, Sir Isaac and Lady Wolfson, and the Principal and Vice-Principal. Her Royal Highness lunched in Hall, with some fifty guests, the Fellows, and as many members of the J.C.R. as could be accommodated. After lunch she took coffee with the J.C.R. and was most charming to the considerable number who were presented. The opening ceremony took place at 3 p.m. in a marquee on the lawn. The weather was not too kind, but fortunately the only serious shower of rain took place while the party was safely assembled in the marquee. After the opening, Her Royal Highness inspected a number of rooms in Wolfson Building and talked to the occupants, and paid a short visit to New Building. At tea, a further series of guests was presented. The whole ceremony was quite delightful. Now our two new buildings are in full occupation. Their amenities and comfort are very much appreciated. The College owes a great deal to its 10


architect, Mr. David Roberts. During the five and a half years of our association, he has shown the greatest appreciation of our needs and the utmost patience with our queries and changes of mind. We are exceedingly grateful to him, and we believe that he has enabled St. Hugh's to make a distinguished contribution to the architecture of twentieth-century Oxford. I think I must also pay tribute here to the help given by Senior Members in the expansion of the College. Many had contributed to the earlier Building Appeal, but the response to the new appeal launched has been admirable. A final appeal last summer brought in nearly £6,000 in donations and covenants, and the total now (31 January 1969) stands at £87,617. Of this, about half has come from Senior Members, which is a magnificent effort considering that we have very few rich members. There is still a debt of some £45,000, which we must pay off out of income over the coming years. Though the building programme is completed, the expansion of the College continues. The University Commission of Inquiry (the Franks Commission) gave prominence to the need to increase the proportion of women in the University. Consultations have been held with the women's colleges, and the plan for the size and shape of the University, just approved by Congregation, while holding the number of men undergraduates to approximately the present figure, a decison forced on the University by the lack of finance for new posts and expansion of libraries and laboratories as well as shortage of lodgings, allows for an increase of 175 at the existing women's colleges. Each of them is therefore planning to increase, and at St. Hugh's we have decided to increase by thirty undergraduates. This does, of course, mean that the number of undergraduates in lodgings will have to increase again. Clearly we cannot contemplate any new buildings until our present debt is paid off, though as the leases of the other Canterbury Road houses fall in, we may consider making use of them for undergraduates. At the moment it appears that at any rate the first stages of the increase will cause little hardship to undergraduates, as it is probable that there will be enough who opt to live out in their third year to balance the deficiency in rooms available. The first increase of ten will take place in Michaelmas Term 1969. The Governing Body has done a careful exercise to establish the subjects in which increase is desirable, what new teaching posts are required and any expansion in administrative and domestic provision. Only minor adjustments have proved to be necessary in these last respects. As regards subjects, it was agreed to give priority to science, and since the provision of tutorial Fellows, though increased from one to two by the appointment of Mrs. Gehring as Tutor in Physics in Michaelmas Term 1968, was still disproportionately low, the appointment of Mrs. Green as Tutor in Chemistry was made in Hilary Term 1969. Since pressure of entry in History and Modern Languages is always great, two new Tutors have been appointed, both already lecturers at the College, Mrs. Russell in History, with some reduction of her duties as Librarian, and Mrs. Barber in French. The College has elected two new Honorary Fellows, the Hon. Mrs. Miriam Lane, who had been given an Honorary D.Sc. by the University in Hilary Term 1968, and Professor Joan Hussey, B.Litt., M.A., Ph.D. London, a graduate of the College, Professor of History in the University of London. In Michaelmas Term 1968, Mrs. Gehring (G. A. Murray), D.Phil., II


formerly Leverhulme Research Fellow of the College, took up the post of Tutor and Probationary Fellow in Physics. Mrs. Lunn, formerly Lecturer of the College, took up the post of Tutor and Probationary Fellow in Mathematics. Mr. R. R. Stuart, B.Litt., was appointed Lecturer in Jurisprudence. Dr. L. Lyons resigned his post as Lecturer in Physics at the end of Trinity Term 1968. In response to the appeal to help students from Czechoslovakia, the College elected Miss M. Svestkova as an additional Rawnsley Student, and gave a place to Miss E. Paterova. The latter, however, withdrew at the end of Michaelmas Term. In Trinity Term 1968 Miss J. P. Dawkins was in residence as Schoolmistress Student. In the 1967-8 Chronicle it was reported that the first woman officer of the Union Society was a St. Hugh's undergraduate, Janet Morgan. In Hilary Term 1968, St. Hugh's also provided the first woman President, Geraldine Jones, who had a most successful term of office. The number of those reading for first degrees in Michaelmas Term 1968 was 279. Of these, 269 were undergraduates coming straight from school and ten were qualified for senior status or of mature years. Fifty-eight candidates are in residence reading for higher degrees, of whom 22 are Oxford graduates and 36 graduates of other universities. Of these, 27 are candidates for a B.Litt., 6 for a B.Phil., 4 for a B.Sc., 13 for a D.Phil., 1 for Chemistry Part II, and 7 for a B.M. Thirteen graduates of the College and 8 graduates of other universities are taking diplomas. In the Final Honour Schools of 1968 there were seven First Classes: in Literae Humaniores, J. E. Annas; in Mathematics, R. A. Bailey, M. N. Bennett, and L. V. Colyer; in Animal Physiology, C. E. Bastie; in Modern Languages, J. V. Balmer; in P.P.E., F. P. Kuttner. Fifty-four candidates were placed in the Second Class, thirteen in the Third; there were two passes and one failure. In Classical Honour Moderations, J. M. Kane was placed in the First Class, and there were four Seconds and no Thirds. In Mathematical Honour Moderations, S. L. Elbourne, S. A. Littlejohns, J. Peeling, and S. Russell-Vick were placed in the First Class and there were five Seconds and no Thirds. K. M. K.

J.C.R. REPORT FOR 1968

O

NE of the highlights of an eventful year was the official opening of the Wolfson Building in May by H.R.H. Princess Alexandra. After having lunch in Hall, the Princess came for coffee in the J.C.R. where she at once took entertainment out of our hands and drew everyone into conversation. Her enthusiastic interest in women's education and great vitality impressed us very much. Earlier in the term the J.C.R. Committee had been invited to Somerville when the Queen opened a new graduate block and the women Presidents were among those to be presented. Although the widespread student unrest has not penetrated St. Hugh's, a significant move towards greater participation has been the setting up of the Joint Committee. Chaired by the Principal and comprising three Fellows and three representatives of the J.C.R., this meets at least once a term to discuss matters of common interest in the running of the College. So far results have 20


included the decision to allow the use of the Common Room of the New Building by any members of the College for drinks, and the abolition of the S.C.R. `procession' into Formal Hall. Another much-appreciated innovation is the late-night system whereby we can come in at any hour through the Lodge, instead of the romantic but uncomfortable route over the wall. St. Hugh's is now by far the most enlightened women's college in this respect! Members of the J.C.R. also appreciate the opportunity to dine on High Table once a fortnight, sharing this with the M.C.R. This has been a particularly gay year as we have had two College balls. The first was held in the Hilary Term, but the more expensive groups were not sufficiently well supported for it to be a financial success. We therefore decided to accept Mansfield's suggestion of a combined Christmas Ball. A luminous green, Tolkien-inspired poster, bearing an 'Invitation to Mordor', contributed to a massive demand for tickets, which sold out a week in advance. The joint organization, including Sandy Mason as President of St. Hugh's Ball Committee, is to be congratulated on an experiment we hope to repeat. An appeal for musicians to revivify the Music Society met with a great response, true to the apocryphal 'what does he play ?' image. The concert given in the Michaelmas Term had a programme which varied from madrigals and Bach's Clavier Concerto in D minor to Rossini's Italian Girl in Algiers. Clare Asher and Jane Glover conducted and the J.C.R. voted a generous supply of funds for future activities. As usual we had Carol Services with Keble at the end of Michaelmas Term, including a carol entitled 'Gloria, blest must thou be' written and set to music by Elizabeth Norman. The J.C.R. was packed for a hectic but thoroughly enjoyed Scouts' Carol Party, which had a much greater response than usual by everyone. Support was given by the J.C.R. to Fran Hazelton, who produced a highly amusing version of A Taste of Honey with a well-chosen University cast. An unusual feature was the jazz trio on stage, playing pieces composed by Michael Hinton. The Art Committee has been concerned with the appearance of the corridors this year. Black-and-white originals emphasize the clear-cut lines of the Wolfson and the 'cathedrals' are being reframed to keep up with the new decorations in the Main Building. It has also been discovered that an astute Committee in the past acquired a John Piper', which has appreciated in value quite considerably. Teas are being provided in the J.C.R. on Friday afternoons, which accounts for the long trail of men up the Banbury Road. The proceeds are sent to War-on-Want. After the distinction of Geraldine Jones's Presidency, St. Hugh's continues to help to organize the Union. Caroline Harvey is Librarian and Sue Bovey has been elected to Standing Committee. Other people are secretaries of clubs, including Gillie Keith for the Exploration Club, Annette Blampied for the North America Club, Tessa Lawrence for the French Club, and Pat Green for the Geological Society. Heather Aird is News Editor for Cherwell. We congratulate Veronica Veall on being awarded a Violet Vaughan Morgan Prize and Wendy Hayward on winning the Countess of Warwick Travelling Scholarship, as well as Julia Annas, Rosemary Bailey, Jenny Balmer, Celia Bastie, Margaret Bennett, Lynda Colyer, and Patricia Kuttner on their Firsts in Schools. BRONWEN HOARE 2I


GAMES REPORT, 1967-8 E have had another good year and been well represented in many branches of University sport, Lesley Jenking being Captain of Hockey W and Anna Conlong, Captain of Netball. In Cuppers Sue Ridsdale led the tennis team to victory and Lesley led the hockey, the first time we have won for many years. We miss her a lot this year, together with Jackie Pool, longstanding goalie in the Lacrosse Team, and Sue Styles, ex-Captain of Cricket. Despite the flakes of falling snow which account for the pained expressions in the photograph, the Lacrosse Team beat Cambridge and Blues were awarded to Jackie Pool, Hilary Russell, Ursula Rice, and Judy Goff. Unfortunately the Hockey lost the Blue match at home, the Team including Lesley Jenking, Gill Tattersall, Angela Mitchell, and Ruth Jackson. Blues in Netball were awarded to Anna Conlong and Jennifer King. Providing half the Squash Team, Lindsey Stanworth (M.C.R.), Pat Green, and Sally Letts gained their Half-Blues. In fencing we go on from strength to strength, with Dione Wright as Captain and Sally Littlejohns, who has been chosen to fight in Guernsey in an International Youth Competition as result of successes in British tournaments. Both helped Oxford to a resounding victory over Cambridge. Sue Elbourne is Secretary for the Table Tennis Club and won a Half-Blue. As usual much tennis was played during the summer, varying in standard from the informal games with men's colleges to the select Lawn Tennis Club, of which Sue Russell-Vick is now Match Secretary. Jane Panton and Lindsey Stanworth were awarded Blues. The Cricket Team played some interesting matches against Oriel and Lincoln, as well as beating Cambridge by sixty runs with a side that included Lesley Jenking, Florence Bartlett, and Judy Goff.

ELEANOR S. NICHOLAS (1913-16), O.B.E., M.A. came up to St. Hugh's as a scholar from Clapham High School. She had already shown her powers of leadership as Head Girl of her school, and it was soon evident that she would be one of the leading students of her year—in fact she became Senior Student and Hockey Captain, and she played left-wing for the University. We who were up in 1914 were the first women to be coached by male tutors and Eleanor went to Professor J. A. R. Marriott, one of the leading historians of the time. She had a brilliant brain: she was clear and concise in both the written and the spoken word, and her crowning achievement at Oxford was a First in History. Those who came in contact with her remember her humility, her honesty and directness, her devoted patriotism, all based on a sincere and firm faith. Her delightful sense of humour and her kindliness made her many friends. We at St. Hugh's 1913-16 must all be the better for knowing her. On leaving the University she worked for the Society for Overseas Settlement of British Women, and later, during the War, was Secretary of the Children's Overseas Reception Board. For her services she was awarded the M.B.E. in 1937, and the O.B.E. before she retired in 1946 to look after her father. During the last eight years she had lived in America with her widowed sister who cared for her during a long and painful illness, borne, as one would expect, with wonderful courage and patience. 4 LEANOR

TEACHING POSTS VACANT ANY schools write to the College to ask if any suggestions can be made of graduates who might be interested in a vacant post. As regards recent M graduates, tutors have the requisite information. But there may be others who wish to change their school, or who want to take up teaching again after an interval, or who would like to get a post in a particular neighbourhood. If there are any Senior Members who would like to be notified of vacant posts, it is suggested that they should inform the College, which could then compile a list that could be referred to when notifications of vacancies are received. The College is also from time to time notified of impending appointments of headmistresses. It would again be helpful if there were a list of Senior Members who were interested in obtaining a post as headmistress. K. M. KENYON
