ANNUAL MEETING OF THE ASSOCIATION OF SENIOR MEMBERS HE forty-fourth Annual General Meeting of the Association of Senior Members was held in the Mordan Hall on Saturday, 5 July 1969, at 3 p.m., the President, Miss Sargeaunt, in the Chair. Thirty-five 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 thanked the members present for attending the meeting when there was no Gaudy. Miss Sargeaunt drew special attention to Dame Mary Cartwright's inclusion in the Birthday Honours List, and the Meeting expressed a wish to send her congratulations. The President pointed out that there were no elections due this year. Those would take place next year, when Miss Lemon would be retiring from the Editorship of the Chronicle after twenty-five years. In recalling last year's Gaudy arrangements, Miss Sargeaunt said that the Committee were delighted that nearly everyone came to the party and that they were proposing to have this again, as it seemed to have met with approval. Also the Committee appreciated the opportunity of meeting more of the members. Another innovation for next year concerned the Principal's speeches. Dr. Kenyon had said that she would be glad to be relieved of one of them, and so she would make one speech at the Gaudy Dinner. At the Annual General Meeting a report on College news would be given by the Governing Body's representative, Dr. Adam. Miss Sargeaunt said that the affairs of the Association were going smoothly. She ended by reminding members that the 197o Register of Addresses would be sent only on prior payment of five shillings and that Miss Lemon would accept five shillings at this meeting to save people having to send it. This year, when there was no Gaudy, there would be the London Cocktail Party. The Principal's Report. The Principal explained that she was not trying to avoid speech-making, but that it was difficult to divide the news and to think of something different to say for the Dinner speech. She thanked the Committee for the new suggestion. The Principal said her report was not as exciting as last year's with its climax in Princess Alexandra's visit. The College now had eighty-eight new rooms in two buildings and a certain degree of consolidation was needed. It was necessary to catch up financially. Of the ÂŁ90,000 which the College had received in response to the appeals, more than half had been contributed by Senior Members. Shortly this would be increased by a further 3o guineas' fee for scenes of the Principal's Lodging, shot for a film of Charley's Aunt. The past year had, then, been a period of consolidation, and the College had to assess the effects of the expansion. Everyone who wanted to had been able to live in College. The Principal pointed out, however, that the College



could not stand still. More women's places were required in Oxford as was given prominence in the Report of the Franks Commission. St. Hugh's had decided to increase by another 3o undergraduates, io per year over the next three years. This would include 30 living out of College, but this would present no particular hardship since some wanted to do so. Some had permission to get married and this tendency would increase, though the proportion of married undergraduates was not likely to be large. The Principal said that the College had an overdraft of k4o,000 and therefore could not undertake further expansion. With the 3o extra there would be 30o places, plus or minus, with in addition some mature students. On the present showing this seemed to be the sort of College we wanted. The other women's colleges had similar plans, but the combined total of women's places would still be below the Franks recommendation. During the next few years the Principal foresaw mixed colleges as at Cambridge. She felt that the big men's colleges would undertake this. Men's numbers were limited by the University because of pressure on library and other accommodations. There was a surplus of women applicants in Modern Languages, English, and History, but the reverse in Classics and Science. If colleges were mixed at undergraduate levels, they would clearly be mixed at graduate levels, and in this case Senior and Middle Common Room members might be lured away, but if the advantage was to women's education, this must be accepted, and stipends should be brought up if possible. Turning again to St. Hugh's, the Principal said that two new tutors had been appointed, Mrs. Russell in History, and Mrs. Barber in French. Miss Rountree would be leaving the College in October. Mrs. Edwards had been appointed Lecturer in Classics. Over the last four or five years the tutorial fellows and lecturers had increased by a half-dozen. The College would like to appoint more and endowments for Fellowships were urgently needed. The University's decision to step up the endowment incomes of poorer colleges was a generous one. The first stages of this were now taking place, and in two or three years the College should begin a substantial build-up of endowment. It might then be possible to increase stipends to equal men's. The Principal said she would not deal in detail with awards and prizes, but wished to be associated with congratulations to Dame Mary Cartwright. Mr. Harris, the gardener, had also received the singular distinction of being awarded the Royal Horticultural Society's medal for forty years' service and had been entertained in College. Every now and again he talked of retiring, but the Principal hoped he would last out her time. The President thanked the Principal for telling us so much and thanked also the College for letting us hold the meeting. She looked forward to the Gaudy.

GAUDY, 1970


HE St. Hugh's College Gaudy will be held from Friday, 3 July, until Monday, 6 July 197o. The Gaudy Dinner will take place on Saturday, 4 July, at 7.3o p.m. Dinner on Friday night will be informal. Invitation slips are enclosed with the Chronicle. 8

PRINCIPAL'S REPORT OMPARED with previous years, 1969 has been relatively uneventful— no all-pervading noise of building, no official openings. New Building and Wolfson Building look firmly established, and the few minor teething troubles have been dealt with. The generosity of Senior Members to the Building Fund continues. Recently there were two gifts amounting to over 42,000. The total stands at nearly £93,000, and it seems not impossibly optimistic to think that we may reach our initial target of 100,000. This would be a most satisfactory achievement, even though there would still be £25,000 overdraft to be paid off, due to the inevitable escalation of prices while building was in progress. College finances will thus be pretty heavily committed for a number of years, and no major constructional activities can be contemplated. We are also endeavouring to keep up steady progress in redecorating the older rooms and corridors, especially in Main Building. This, though the pride and glory of 1916, is now occupied mainly by first years, as providing the least attractive accommodation, and one cannot deny that the first impression of new undergraduates and their parents is sometimes unfavourable. Groups of rooms are steadily being redecorated, but the rate is restricted by finance. The time when we might ask an architect to plan a thorough redevelopment to bring the rooms more into line with modern ideas is far in the future. Senior Members of St. Hugh's should, however, know of what the richer colleges are doing to help the finances of the poorer colleges, in which category are included the women's colleges and five of the men's colleges. The recommendation of the Franks Commission was that the endowment of each college should be brought up to £600,000. The richer colleges agreed to pay, according to their endowment income, into a Colleges Contribution Fund and from this Fund the poorer colleges each year receive a substantial payment. At the moment the effect on our income is not large, and certain other payments from the University have ceased, but soon our income will start to increase. This is very generous help from the older foundations to the younger. The year has seen a number of changes in the Senior Common Room. It is very sad that this must begin by recording the death in a street accident of Mrs. Barber. Only in last year's Chronicle was it reported that she had been appointed Tutor and Fellow in French, after having served the College well as lecturer for a number of years. It is a very sad loss to the College, and tragic for her husband and young daughter. The College has established the Monique Barber Memorial Fund, to be used for the benefit of undergraduates reading French. Miss Julianne Rountree (now Mrs. Jack) resigned her Fellowship and Tutorship in Philosophy at the end of Trinity Term, and has migrated to Somerville, the college of her first Oxford degree. In her place Miss Gillian Romney, B.Phil., M.A., has been appointed Fellow and Tutor. Mrs. Edwards (M.A. Cantab., Ph.D. London) was appointed Lecturer in Classics in Michaelmas Term 1969, and Mr. J. C. Wilkinson, M.A., was appointed Lecturer in Geography at the same date. Mrs. Crossley resigned her Lecturership in Zoology at the end of Hilary Term 1969, and Dr. W. D. Billington (Ph.D. Wales) was appointed in her place in Trinity Term. Miss Wendy James, M.A., who read Geography at St. Hugh's from 1959



to 1962, and who has since been a lecturer at the University of Khartoum, was elected as the third holder of the Leverhulme Junior Research Fellowship from Michaelmas Term 197o. In Trinity Term 1969 Mrs. Richardson of Nailsea School, nr. Bristol was in residence as Schoolmistress Student. There are certain prizes which members of St. Hugh's seem to win with almost embarrassing regularity. One is the Sacred Poem Prize, which was won in 1969 by Mrs. Wood, Fellow and Tutor in History. The University Calendar records only the last three winners, and they are at present all members of St. Hugh's, in 1965 Miss Phyllis Hartnoll, in 1962 Mrs. Caird (V. M. Newport). As Miss Hartnoll also won it in 1947, it is a remarkable record. Among undergraduate awards we produce a steady succession of winners of the Countess of Warwick Travelling Bursary, this year won by A. M. S. Mitchell. In Trinity Term 1969 the third Henry Rowlatt Bickley Memorial Lecture was given by Mr. J. B. Ward-Perkins, Director of the British School at Rome. His subject was 'A Roman Architect at Work: the Severan buildings at Leptis Magna'. In 1969 the increase in undergraduate numbers referred to in the last issue of the Chronicle was begun, with the admission of Io in excess of those going down. The number of those in residence reading for first degrees in Michaelmas Term 1969 was 290. Of these, 28o were undergraduates coming straight from school and Io were qualified for senior status or classified as mature students. Fifty-seven candidates were in residence reading for higher degrees, of whom 28 are Oxford graduates and 29 are graduates of other universities. Of these, 27 are candidates for a B.Litt., 5 for a B.Phil., 2 for a B.Sc., 13 for a D.Phil., 2 for Chemistry Part II, and 8 for B.M. Six graduates of the College and 8 graduates of other universities are taking diplomas. Six graduates of the College and 4 graduates of other universities are taking the Certificate of Education. 1969 was the best year for First Classes in anyone's memory, II of which 4 were in Modern Languages. The First Classes were as follows: in Lit. Hum., K. V. Wilkes; in Mathematics, S. Chinn; in Zoology, S. Whyte; in English, C. A. Tomlins ; in Modern Languages, M. F. Collier (German), M. D. Dowey (French, with distinction in spoken French), C. E. Grayson (German, Russian), W. A. Hayward (French, with distinction in spoken French); in P.P.E., Mrs. Weld (S. Cartledge); in Theology, J. Mitchell; in Oriental Studies, P. C. Johnstone. Fifty-seven candidates were placed in the Second Class, 12 in the Third, and there were 2 Passes. In Classical Honour Moderations, J. S. Clarke was placed in the First Class, and there were 4 Seconds and 2 Thirds. In Mathematical Honour Moderations, G. E. Bird, S. W. Claridge, and S. M. Richards were placed in the First Class, and there were 3 Seconds and no Thirds. K. M. K. ,

JUNIOR COMMON ROOM, 1969 EVERAL additions were made to the College facilities during the year; an extra telephone and a tumble-drier made College life easier, while a dinner service, sherry glasses, a table-tennis table and a hot-drinks machine now make it even more enjoyable. Two magnificent menus were provided by the Chef and his staff, on the J.C.R. Formal Guest Night in Hilary Term, and on St. Hugh's night in the Michaelmas, both including the delicious 'Gateau meringue St. Hugh'. Meals, in another context, provided one point of endless discussion in the J.C.R., with the Bursar, and on the Joint Committee. The desire of a majority of the J.C.R. for alternative meal arrangements was complicated by the multiplicity of suggested changes and the difficulty of finding an arrangement to suit several minorities while remaining most beneficial to all concerned. Our thanks are due to the Bursar who took endless trouble to achieve an admirable compromise with lunch tickets. Formal Hall became less so, as trousers could be worn, except on guest nights, and several J.C.R. members accepted the S.C.R.'s invitation to dine on High Table during the year. The early rising habits of the J.C.R. left the newly instituted Buttery breakfast almost unpatronized, and we reverted to morning coffee again. A second contentious point was that of hours for visitors; a majority of returned questionnaire answers suggested they were too short. Again the J.C.R. was disunited in its ideas for remedying the situation, and the Joint Committee and new J.C.R. President were left to reopen the discussions. The activities of the Joint Committee in the sphere of sharing facilities with Jesus College were watched with interest by the J.C.R. until that subject took its turn to decline before newly rising concerns. After a good game St. Hugh's were defeated on ITV's programme `University Challenge'. The J.C.R. sponsored a spate of social activities, 19


among them a pantomime (the concoction of Barbara Clark and Felicity Goodey), Jonson's Volpone, and a mysterious Masked Ball, which, despite intense undercutting competition, was a great success. Both Volpone in Trinity Term, and the Ball in Michaelmas Term were organized jointly with Mansfield and owe much to Felicity Goodey's efforts to enrol J.C.R. support and help. The Art Committee toyed with the idea of a sculpture, but found none suitable, and first invested in sharing with the S.C.R. the cleaning and reframing costs of the College prints, which we hope soon to see along the corridors of M.B. The Music Society, especially under Clare Asher's guidance, performed some beautiful pieces, both instrumental and choral, accompanied by very learned programme notes. Again the Christmas carol service was a joint operation with Keble, and the same week of Michaelmas the J.C.R. held a carol party for the College staff. A project in Birmingham, arranged by JACARI, and a Jericho Play Group, were supported with J.C.R. funds, and Helen Goldie continued to encourage St. Hugh's contribution to War-on-Want with her Friday teas. The First Year photographs appeared as usual, despite the quickly discovered presence of amusingly dressed intruders. A few sherry parties were held jointly with St. Peter's for many of the First Years, and the First Year geographers continued our record of exploration with their expedition to the Canaries during the summer To the multiplicity of internal affairs involving the J.C.R. were added several University and inter-college activities. Our congratulations go especially to Sue Bovey on her election as Secretary of the Oxford Union Society, after working up through various committees, and to Heather Aird, who became St. Hugh's first Editor of Cherwell in Michaelmas Term. St. Hugh's has been well respresented in the dramatics sphere of O.U.D.S., E.T.C., and the Opera Club, and several members sing in the S.C.O. and Bach choirs. Catharine Scott was awarded a Harmsworth Exhibition at the Middle Temple, Angela Mitchell won the Countess of Warwick Travelling Bursary for travel in France, and Jennifer Kane, Christine Jones, and Lois Lightfoot are to be congratulated on their scholarships and prizes. The J.C.R. became interested in the idea of a central Student's Union, lending its support to a suggestion that a 'red-brick' type union with working, eating, and social facilities be based upon the present Oxford Union Society's premises. The J.C.R. produced a criticism of the Hart Report, with several constructive comments that were later discussed at a University ad hoc committee, and the Student Council Representatives for the J.C.R. were urged to convey to higher authorities the J.C.R.'s dismay at the five-week vacation residence limit proposed by Edward Short. An increasing number of people became involved in J.C.R. affairs inside and outside the College. While one or two setbacks occurred there was a mutual increase in friendly co-operation within the College and the J.C.R. is indebted to the Bursar, the Dean, and the College staff for furthering good relations.

GAMES REPORT 1968-9 T. HUGH's continues to play a leading role in all the major University sports clubs. Pat Green was captain of squash and Dione Wright captain of fencing; Sue Russell Vick was secretary of tennis and hockey, Judy Goff of lacrosse, Sally Littlejohns of fencing, Sue Elbourne of table-tennis, and Margaret Irish was tennis treasurer. Regular social matches of hockey and tennis were played against men's colleges but St. Hugh's had the good sense to keep well away from the river. In spite of five Blues, we managed to lose to both Somerville and St. Hilda's in hockey cuppers but the tennis was awarded to us without a point being played. Elizabeth Hayes, Margaret Irish, Frances Miller, Angela Mitchell, and Sue Russell Vick played in the University hockey team which, after a close match, became the only side from Oxford not to win against Cambridge last year. The Lacrosse Club was successful with Clare Bygrave, Jane Glover, and Judy Goff gaining Blues. Karin Boote was in the netball team and Sue Elbourne played in the table-tennis match. Sally Littlejohns and Dione Wright helped the Fencing Club to beat Cambridge, and Sally went on to represent British Universities. The squash team was also successful in its Varsity match, with St. Hugh's providing more than half the side: Vivian Grisogono, Lyndsay Stanworth, and Pat Green were awarded their HalfBlues. Clare Bygrave played in the cricket team that had a convincing win against Cambridge, but most people's attention turned to tennis in which the University had a good season. In this case two-thirds of the two teams were from St. Hugh's. The Blues match had to be played in two stages as the result of bad weather; Margaret Irish, Lyndsay Stanworth, Sue Russell Vick, and Barbara Clark were in the original side but by the resumption Vivian Grisogono was fit enough to replace Lyndsay and help Oxford to a resounding victory.

ELSIE LEMON LSIE came up to St. Hugh's in 1917 from Monmouth Girls' High School and read Modern History. Although handicapped by poor health she yet E managed to take full part in College life, and her strong personality, vigorous mind, and strong convictions soon made her stand out among her contemporaries. After College she spent some years in private teaching but quite soon, in about 1927, she returned to Oxford where, as she so much wished, she made her career and home. She became secretary to K. N. Bell, Fellow and Tutor in History at Balliol, and assisted in the organization of the Balliol Society, working on the compilation of the Balliol Register of 1934 and 1952; last year she completed her work on the 1969 Register. She was also Secretary to the Balliol 1919 Dining Club, of Balliol men who had served in the First World War; this post she held until her death in February 197o. Another work carried out by Elsie for Balliol was that of Secretary to the Balliol Educational Trust. No record of Elsie's life would be complete without mention of her close association with Sarah Bell, daughter of K. N. Bell and founder and head of the 'Squirrel Nursery School'. Sally started the school over twenty years ago and in 1949 Elsie and Sally moved into 17 Rawlinson Road where the school flourished. Elsie was not herself active in the school but took the 22

closest interest in it and did much work for it in many ways. Another interest of Elsie's was the Oxford Association of University Women, a branch of the British Federation of University Women, affiliated to the International Federation of University Women. She was an active member for many years and was President of O.A.U.W. 1962-6; she attended meetings regularly and in Oxford was always ready to welcome visiting members and arrange interesting programmes for them. Her interest in, and connection with, College remained close throughout her life; she edited the Chronicle for twenty-five years; she had already announced her intention to retire after the 1970 issue and she was commencing work on it when she died. To all the work Elsie undertook she brought a great sense of responsibility and of personal involvement. The work called for concentration and accuracy; she had that but to her the compilation of records meant much more than mere lists; she was always conscious that her work was with persons. To many generations of St. Hugh's her death will leave a big gap; her home in Oxford was always open to St. Hugh's—indeed, one or two St. Hugh's undergraduates were generally to be found living there—and we shall not easily forget her many kindnesses and the unfailing warm hospitality with which she welcomed us, especially at Gaudy times.



RS. MONIQUE BARBER (née Fluchere) was killed in a street accident on 17 November 1969, significantly on leaving the Taylorian Library where—perfectionist that she was—she had been adding to her already comprehensive grasp of literary material needed for her tutorials the following day. Mrs. Barber was a commoner of Lady Margaret Hall 1947-50, Lectrice at Newnham College 1956-60, and Lectrice at Cambridge University 1958-60. She first became associated with St. Hugh's in 1960 and after eight years as a lecturer was appointed to a Tutorship in French and a Fellowship from October 1969. She also held an Agregation d'anglais from the Sorbonne and in Hilary Term 1969 completed her Oxford B.Litt. on the eighteenth-century French author H. J. Dulaurens. Her thesis had led her to explore an area of French literature where relatively little work is being done at present and she had various plans for pursuing her studies in the eighteenth-century. At the same time her breadth of knowledge was gaining increasing recognition outside St. Hugh's and calls upon her academically were becoming numerous. Her versatility in French and English gave her exceptional and stimulating insight into tricky linguistic problems, whilst her clear mind and sensitive approach to literature made discussion with her always rewarding. It is with the most tragic sense of loss that those who knew her envisage what she would undoubtedly have contributed both to St. Hugh's and to the University over the many unfulfilled years of a career that held so much promise. In a commitment to St. Hugh's which was cemented over the years, Mrs. Barber's warm personality and outstanding gifts as a teacher had left their imprint on succeeding generations of undergraduates. They recall with gratitude her multiple efforts on their behalf, her patient interest in them as individuals for whom she was prepared to take immense trouble. There was nothing superficial about Mrs. Barber, but neither was there anything heavy: 23

that would have been impossible in one so essentially rooted in Provence as she was. To her pupils she was a friend, to those who knew her as a colleague she represented a rare combination of human values—of integrity, of unassuming modesty coupled with a ready sense of humour—and of scholarship. To them her loss will always remain real, however much time may deaden the impact of her cruel disappearance.

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 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

Mrs. Fortescue-Foulkes, the first medical student at St. Hugh's, told us how she had to have a chaperone at tutorials . . . how things have changed. We were very much interested to hear Dr. Kenyon tell us of her activities in 'digs', especially in Zimbabwe and Jericho, where she dug up dirt in order to verify history.

ACTING EDITOR'S NOTE t-T-1HIS issue of the Chronicle may reach you somewhat later than usual, 1 due to the untimely death of Miss Elsie Lemon and the subsequent difficulties encountered by the Acting Editor on having to take over at very short notice. Senior Members are asked to note that any correspondence concerning the Chronicle should be addressed to the Acting Editor, Dr. Sheila Bradbury, 61 Hill Top Road, Oxford. The Address List (1970) will not be sent out with the Chronicle as on previous occasions: it will, as announced last year, be sent only to those members who have ordered a copy and who have sent 5s. A number of Senior Members ordered a copy last year, when they returned the coloured slips with their year's news; they will be receiving their copy as soon as the Address List is ready. Any other Senior Members who would still like to order a copy are asked to do so without delay, by sending a cheque or postal order for 5s. (payable to St. Hugh's College) to the Acting Editor. It is hoped to have the Address List ready by early summer: any Senior Member who has already ordered a copy and who has not received one by 37

the end of July should write again to the Acting Editor, in case their order has been inadvertently overlooked. Any Senior Members who have changed their address and who have not yet informed the Secretary of the A.S.M. are requested to do so without delay, otherwise their out-of-date address will appear in the 197o Address List.

SCHOLARSHIPS FOR POSTGRADUATE WORK THE B.F.U.W. and the I.F.U.W. offer each year for competition amongst THE certain Scholarships and Fellowships that enable the holders to undertake research work abroad, mostly for an academic year, or occasionally for a shorter period to complete a piece of work; there is also available each year a Scholarship at Crosby Hall, the B.F.U.W.'s Club House in London. Particulars may be obtained from: The Secretary, British Federation of University Women, Crosby Hall, Cheyne Walk, London, S.W. 3.
