Next year they will take their places as Seniors with a resolve
to use their spirit, cooperation, and ideals in leaving Ward-Belmont
a better school than the one they entered. Let's give a cheer for
the Mids of '46 . . . the Seniors of '47.

who made their debut with the rattle of the tin woodman
and other Oz characters at the Inter-Hall Party, and took
their curtain call in white dresses and roses at graduation ;
whose atoms were unleased on Junior, Junior-Middle Day,
and were fused into tears at the Senior Banquet.

Forgetting about chemistry and English, they dashed
to the smoker during "recreation," but were called back
by the shout, "Study hall, y' all." In a mad rush from
the chapel they fought to form a weaving, chanting line
outside the Tea Room. They rolled over when they heard

the breakfast bell on Saturday morning and later, in pin
curls, and jeans, appeared in Middle March reading their
mail and drinking cokes. They introduced prep senior
hats. Bouncing to class shouting, "Let it rain, let it rain,
let it rain" ; sharing books, clothes, and money like a huge
family: inventing new languages and coining trick phrases
. . . they are easily distinguished on campus as one of the
most alive and united groups at Ward-Belmont.

"The Junior-Middles stand before you," with ideals and
spirits high, personifying the promise of youth.

One of the most versatile organizations
on campus, the Captivators, switch at the
slightest provocation from circus music
to "I'm in the Mood for Love" and the

rough and with such stars as Miss Jean
Ryder and Pat Tanton, Sheila Kennard,
Pat Rhine, and vocalist Peggy Henry, the
Captivators continue as one of Ward-Bel-
mont's most popular musical groups.

Extremely efficient in all its duties, this organization has
again this year distributed its usual number of majors and
minors. But, though this is true, the main purpose of the
Council is not to punish or to prohibit pleasures. Form-

ing the connecting link between the administration and
day students, the Day Student Council strives to promote
school spirit and respect for school laws.

thanks for the wonderful gym parties, the hilarious peanut
hunt, and the exciting Valentine Banquet, climaxed by
the appearance of the long-awaited King and Queen of

Officers and members of the cabinet owe to the Y thanks
for such memories as their first glimpse of Tennessee
mountains in the fall, the thunder of acorns rolling down
the roof of a dormitory filled with double-deck beds and
Y representatives of other colleges. These things, square
dances, and "Do your ears hang low?" will always remind
them of their Retreat to the woods.

We owe to the Y.W.C.A. memories of quiet,


tional vespers in the clubhouses, the evening we learned
the Meaning of the Fire, candlelight vespers in Acklen at
Christmas, and the Easter sunrise service in the Club Vil-
lage. Y-sponsored discussion groups deepened our reli-
gious tolerance, which is only one instance of the manv
ways, often inconspicuous, in which the Y.^^^C.A. enriches
the life of each girl.

The Y.W.C.A.'s influence is broader than campus ac-
tivities. In service to the community its members planned
weekly trips to such places as the Old Ladies' Home, Junior
League Crippled Children's Home, Tennessee Orphanage,
