WELCOME TO 

We of the Dean of Women's Office bid you 
welcome. 

Your main purpose in entering the Univer- 
sity is to acquire an education. A great part 
of this you will get in the classrooms and the 
Library, from professors, books, and from one 
another. It is also hoped that you will recog- 
nize and take advantage of the extra-curricular 
offerings of the University. 

Though the University is large and as such 
may seem confusing at times, there are a great 
many people here — fellow students, faculty, ad- 
ministrators and stafT — who are personally in- 
terested in your welfare and happiness and 
will be pleased to be of help if you will let 
them know your concerns. 

When you arrive on campus you will be 
given much information to help you learn your way around our community. In 
addition, regulations applicable to all students are set forth in a booklet entitled 
University General and Academic Regulations. The catalog of the College in which 
you register will also set forth certain requirements with which you must 
become familiar. 

Included in this handbook are rules and bits of advice from two campus organiza- 
tions to which all undergraduate women automatically belong — the Associated Women 
Students and the Women's Recreation Association. AWS is the student government 
organization through which the women largely determine the social rules and regula- 
tions by which they live. 

WRA oflfers a great variety of sports activities which will not only prove beneficial 
from a physical standpoint, but will also enable you to make friends with others who 
share your interests. Each organization extends to you an invitation to participate — 
won't you accept! 

Remember, this is now YOUR UNIVERSITY. If we in the Dean of Women's 
Office can in any way assist you in taking advantage of and enjoying all that is here 
for you, please give us the privilege of doing so.

MARYLAND 

Welcome to Maryland. Your own in- 
itiative is the key to friendship, culture, 
and participation in self-government and 
student activities. The Associated Women 
Students is composed of all the under- 
graduate women at Maryland — Greek 
and Independent, Daydodger and Dorm- 
dweller. Our existence is circular. We 
are organized to serve you and in return 
we need your ideas, talents, and enthusi- 
astic support. Consider yourself an im- 
portant part of AWS. As a new member 
of AWS, it is your privilege and duty to 
take part in making and enforcing the 
rules by which the women students at Maryland live. 

We have tried to anticipate and answer your questions about college life. 
Do you have more? Feel free to ask. Now that we have met. a friendly 
"Hi" will serve to open a conversation with any of the officers of A\VS. 

Karen Jacobsex 
AWS President 




WELCOME to the University of Marx- 
land and to WRA! The Women's Recrea- 
tion Association is a student organiza- 
tion which plans and sponsors many 
recreational and sports activities. It is 
designed to meet your interests and is 
dedicated to making your college years 
more enjoyable. All of you belong and 
may participate in any part of its pro- 
gram. 

I feel that participation in our sports 

program is one of the best ways of keep- 

ing healthy, making close friends and 

practicing good sportsmanship. By being 

active in WRA you can become a vital part of an organization that gives 

every Maryland co-ed the opportunity to have these experiences. . 

This should be a wonderful year for WRA, and we are depending on 
you to help make it possible. Remember. WRA is YOUR organization and 
is only as strong as your interest and support.

AWS AND YOU 



• EACH DAYDODGER. INDEPENDENT AND SORORITY WOMAN 

has a voice in AWS. the governing body for all co-eds at Maryland. AWS is 
the counterpart of Men's League in the Student Government Association 
and is an acti\e affiliate of the Intercollegiate Association of Women Stu- 
dents, the national organization. 

• THE PROGRAMS OF AWS include setting up the standards of con- 
duct and residence rules enumerated in this book and sponsoring social, 
academic and cuhural actixities. Become acti\"e within the AWS organiza- 
tion and take ad\antage of this opportunity to govern yourself. 

• APPLICATIONS FOR POSITIONS on anv AWS Board or Committee 
mav be obtained at the A\VS office in the Student L'nion. 



• AWS OFFICERS are chosen by your vote in the SGA campus elections 
each spring. In addition to those pictured above. Cynthia Heisler is the 
elected Senior Representative. Elaine Ricca the Junior Representati\e. and 
Sue Gorham. the Sophomore Representative. 

• THE AWS EXECUTI\'E COUNCIL is the central, coordinating body 
of AWS. It passes upon all A\VS legislation, approves committee chair- 
manships recommended by the A\VS president, and delegates funds for 
A\VS activities from their SGA appropriations. The weekly meetings of 
the Council are open to all women students. Girls who want to take an 
active part in A\VS activities are invited to attend these meetings. 

(6) 



• THE CAMPUS JUDICIAL BOARD has jurisdiction over all violations 
of women's regulations, hears more serious cases referred to them by the 
residence judicial boards, coordinates judicial policy in all residences, and 
acts as an appeals board. Extreme violations of the University rules and 
those which need immediate consideration are referred to the Dean of 
Women's office. 

• THE ACADEMIC BOARD works toward encouraging good .scholarship 
and improving faculty-student relations. Aiding freshmen to adapt to col- 
lege studies, handling of tutoring arrangements in women's residences, pub- 
licizing job placement forums and sponsoring the Dormitory Scholarship 
Cup, which is given to the dorm with the highest scholastic average, are a 
few of its activities. 

• EACH DORMITORY has a council consisting of a president, vice-presi- 
dent, secretary, treasurer and committee chairmen plus class or floor repre- 
sentatives. The House Director is the council adviser. These councils super- 
vise conduct and scholarship within each dorm and promote extra-cur- 
ricular activities. 

• THE DORMITORY COUNCIL consists of all the women's dormitory 
presidents, who meet regularly to discuss problems of dormitory govern- 
ment. Ideas are exchanged concerning the different programs carried out 
in each dorm. Any dorm resident may offer suggestions to the dorm coun- 
cil which may in turn make suggestions to the AWS Executive Council. 



• THE SORORITY 
COUNCIL, as the liaison 
with the Executive Council, 
discusses and acts upon the 
proposals and problems 
brought to its attention by 
the house presidents of the 
various Sorority Houses. 



• Dormitory and Sorority 
Presidents are listed on 
page 12. 




SPECIAL PROGRAMS AND EVENTS 

The activities and programs sponsored by AWS are varied and offer many 
opportunities for leadership experience, participation, enjoyment and view- 
ing. Perhaps one of the following would be of interest to you now or in 
the future. 

BIG SISTER PROGRAM 

Each new Freshman woman at Maryland — whether Dorm-dweller or 
Daydodger — is assigned a Big Sister who will try to answer her questions 
and help her become acquainted wath Maryland customs. During Orienta- 
tion Week you will attend coke dates and dinners with your Big Sister — 
during the year we hope you will still be consulting her when you need help. 

FRESHMAN COUNSELING 

This sei'x'ice is under the auspices of the Counseling Center as well as 
AWS. Those who serve as Counselors take a course in which they learn 
how to help you solve your problems. They also know the sources for aca- 
demic and social information and are willing to help with difficulties in 
these areas as well as others. 

LEADERSHIP WORKSHOP 

Working in cooperation with the Men's League, this group invites an 
outstanding person to speak to them on leadership. After the speaker, dis- 
cussions are held on such topics as campus problems, SGA, activities versus 
leadership and many others. 

CHRISTMAS PAGEANT 

Groups of carolers from all the dormitories, sorority and fraternity houses 
meet at the Chapel for the Pageant which is held on the Chapel steps. The 
Pageant includes a tableau of the Christmas story, songs by the Women's 
Chorus, a speaker, and the lighting of Maryland's Christmas trees by the 
Dean of Women. After the Pageant the Women's Chorus presents a 
program of Christmas music. 

BRIDAL FAIR 

In the spring a young girl's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of a bridal 
gown, trousseau, china, crystal, silver and everything else that goes to make 
up a wedding. Even the girls who are not planning summer weddings 
enjoy the displays set up by the various companies and the style show of 

(8) 



exciting fashions. Brand names on articlrs displayrd here arc easily recog- 
nized as the best, and many a rather reluctant young man can be seen mak- 
ing the rounds of the various booths, helping his girl decide what they want 
for their wedding. 

WOMEN'S EMPLOYMENT CONFERENCE 

This service is an invaluable aid to graduating senior women and those 
seeking summer jobs. At the two teas held annually, representatives of all 
types of employment speak and inter\iew interested and qualified girls. 
A style review of appropriate "work clothes" is held and Miss Future Suc- 
cess — the senior woman with the most potential for being a success — is 
chosen. 

ORPHAN'S PARTY 

This is an annual spring event sponsored by the Associated Women Stu- 
dents and the Panhellenic Council. All women on campus are welcome to 
attend and help entertain the orphans of the Washington area. 




HONORARIES 



Academic success and participation in campus activities are rewarded 
when a co-ed is tapped into one or more of the following honoraries that 
recognize outstanding scholarship, leadership and service to the University. 
All those described below except Phi Kappa Phi are solely for women. 



ALPHA LAMBDA DELTA 

AH Freshman women attaining a 3.5 average or above in their first se- 
mester or first two semesters are eligible for membership in Alpha Lambda 
Delta. The chapter works to stimulate "Intellectual Living" among fresh- 
man women. Its activities include hostessing at cultural events and co- 
sponsoring a tutoring program. 

DIADEM 

Diadem was founded to honor those junior women who have shown 
loyalty and interest in the University of Maryland by giving their time, 
service, and leadership to its welfare and unity, and to stimulate scholastic 
achievement and participation in extra-curricular activities. Members arc 
chosen in the spring semester of their sophomore years and remain active 
for one year. 

DIAMOND 

The members of this honorary are selected on the basis of outstanding 
leadership and service to their respectixe sororities. Each sorority may have 
three active members in Diamond. Tapping is held twice annually, at 
Harmony Hall and the Interfraternity Sing. 

PHI KAPPA PHI 

Those who are tapped for Phi Kappa Phi are seniors who rank in the 
top ten per cent of their class academically. This group dedicates itself 
to the maintenance of unity and democracy in education. Each year a 
scholarship is granted to the graduating senior with the highest average.

Jackie Carrick is tapped into Mortar Board by 
Pat Messer at the 1961 May Day Pageant. 



MORTAR BOARD 

Membership in Mortar Board is the highest possible honor a Maryland 
co-ed may hold. At May Day, the scene of the annual tapping, juniors 
who have displayed excellence in scholarship, leadership, character and 
service are singled out one by one from the mass of spectators by the black 
robed senior members. Mortar Board's other activities include the Home- 
coming Mum Sale and the "Smarty Party" for freshman women with 3.0 
averages or above. This past year the Maryland Chapter was hostess to 
representatives from the Chapters from surrounding colleges and universi- 
ties. 

Mav Day is sponsored by the women of the Junior Class to honor the 
graduating seniors, and the most outstanding senior woman is crowned 
Queen of the May. The x\dele H. Stamp Award is -presented to the out- 
standing junior woman, and freshmen and sophomores are also recognized 
and participate in the festivities. 

Those who were tapped into Mortar Board this past May are as follows: 
Jackie Carrick, Pam Clayton, Karen Dunkin, Kay White, Elinor Kippnes, 
Diane Plutschak, Margie Miller, Janice Montgomery, Sue Gibbons, Shelley

OFFICIAL AWS RULES 



We are fortunate to be able to participate in making the rules and regula- 
tions which affect dormitory living. The following pages and the chart on 
residence hours are important. You will be held responsible for knowing these 
rules and must be able to pass a written test on them. 



SIGNING OUT AND IN 



Definition: Signing out and in consists of recording required informa- 
tion on individual forms at the residence desk upon departure from the 
campus at any time and from the residence after 8 p.m. and upon return. 
By "Campus" we mean the area including the University buildings and 
grounds, sorority and fraternity houses, and the College Park commercial 
district. 



B. Procedure: 

1. Each student must personally sign herself out and in. 

2. The following minimum information must be included: 

a. Time of departure ^according to the official dormitory clock). 

b. Expected return ^usually 10:30 p.m. or 12:45 a.m.). 

c. Destination (address and telephone, if known). 

d. With whom and how (indicate last name). 

e. Exact time in 'according to the official dormitory clock). 

3. Move red tab accordingly: 

a. Tab at extreme right indicates that the student is in the residence. 

b. Tab at middle indicates that the student will return before closing 
hour that evening. 

c. Tab at extreme left indicates an overnight.

(13) 



C. Each woman is on her honor to sign out correctly, to obey the University 
and state regulations which apply to conduct even if signed out for the 
weekend, and to behave with consideration and politeness wherever she 
may be. It is essential to know where she is in case of emergency. 



SPECIAL SIGN OUTS 

A. Phoning in and Leaving La+e: See chart on pages 22 and 23 in col- 
umn Latest time one can sign out. 

B. Illness: In case of illness or serious family emergency be sure to see 
the House Director. Sign out an indefinite time. Bring back a note 
from parents or doctor to your House Director and instructors. 



CLOSING HOURS 

A. When the front door is locked the residence is officially closed. 
(See Chart pages 22 and 23.) 

B. Return after closing hours: In emergency cases when delayed or un- 
able to return before the residence closing hour, a student must call her 
House Director. (In sorority houses, the House Director, manager, or 

president may be called.) After 10:30 p.m. all calls to the University 
go through the campus police. If a student does not return to the dormi- 
tory, her parents and the campus police are notified; a call will help 
to avoid much worrv and confusion. 



LATENESS 

A. Definition: A student who returns to her residence after the expected 
time of return that she has recorded on her card is considered late. Note: 
Sign out for the latest possible time. (If you have late minutes you may 
use them up to 10:40 p.m.) 

B. Procedures: All latenesses of thirty minutes or less are reported by 
the girl herself or by the desk worker to the residence judicial board. 
All unexcused latenesses of more than thirty minutes are automatically 
referred by them to the Campus Judicial Board. 

C. Penalties: 

1. Penalties vary with circumstances but generally consist of revoking 
10:30's or late leaves, assigning approved odd jobs in the residence, 
or "campusing".

minutes for each semester. A woman student may be late any num-

should be taken through the Dormitory Council two weeks in advance. 



QUIET HOURS 



Quiet hours are those times set aside in each residence for sleep and study. 
Without them, continuous chaos would prevail. Would it not be upsetting 
for you to be studying for a big exam while the rest of the floor is having a 
pizza party? Be considerate. Keep your doors closed and your voices low. 
Don't type from midnight to 8 a.m. Radios and phonographs should be turned 
off at midnight also. 

Quiet hours will be enforced by the residence judicial board and executive 
council. 

There are also times set aside and referred to as "noisy" hours. Considera- 
tion is the key word during these periods also. "Noisy" hours are for the pur- 
pose of study-breaking. However, it should still be quiet enough in the Dorm 
for those not interested in taking a break to continue studying. Show proper 
consideration and sometime when you're trying to study you'll appreciate 
having set a good example. (For times see chart on pages 22 and 23). 



VISITORS 

Be sure you know just when your beau may come visiting — for there are 
definite calling hours. If you don't, it can prove quite embarrassing to that 
girl who gets caught in her pajamas and to yourself. (For the specific hours 
see the chart on pages 22 and 23.) 

Men callers who arrive at times other than those specified may wait for 
their dates in the reception hall or lobby *but no longer than five minutes) 
at the discretion of the House Director. 



(17) 



OVERNIGHT GUESTS 

You may invite guests to stay overnight on Friday and Saturday nights and 
the night before a holiday only with the permission of the House Director. 
Daydodgers may stay occasionally for some University function if there is 
space available for them and the House Director gives her consent. 

If you are planning for an overnight guest, secure a guest card from the 
House Director and return it filled out together with the guest fee 24 hours 
prior to the guest's arrival. The guest fee is fifty cents per night (one dollar 
if dormitory linens are used). No guest fee is charged if the guest is a resident 
of another campus dormitory. When your guest arrives, you must introduce 
her to the House Director and show her how to sign in and out. 

Remember — you are responsible for your guest, infractions of the rules she 
commits and must be in residence during her stay. She is allowed the same 
leave permission as her hostess and must abide by the closing hours and other 
residence regulations such as signing out and in during her stay. Arrange- 
ments for guests who stay more than a few days must be made through the 
Dean of Women's Office. 



VISITING A FRATERNITY 

Women students may attend only those functions registered on the University 
Social Calendar which is sent to all residences by Friday of each week. Des- 
serts on week nights may last until 8 p.m. and women students may not go to 
fraternity houses during intermissions when attending campus dances. (For 
Calling Hours see chart on pages 22 and 23.) 

The housemother or an approved chaperone must be present at all times 
that co-eds are in the house. Before a member may bring a co-ed into the 
house, he must obtain permission from the house mother. These rules are for 
your protection and good reputation. Please obey them fully. The risk of 
impulsive, unwise action is obvious. 



WOMEN VISITORS IN MEN'S RESIDENCES 



Women are not per- 
mitted to visit the men's 
dormitories or rooms ex- 
cept at special registered 
parties in the recreation 
room or living room. Par- 
ents and relatives desiring 
to visit residents of the 
dormitories should call at 
the dormitory office. 




HOW TO DRESS 



Women students may wear Bermuda shorts or tailored slacks in the lower 
level of the Student Union, on campus and in the College Park area on Satur- 
days only. Active sports wear of any kind even when covered by a coat is 
never allowed in the Dining Hall, Library. Classroom Buildings. Administration 
Buildings or Chapel. The immediately preceding statement also applies to 
reception halls and lobbies during men's calling hours, although sports attire 
may be worn in the recreation room, if the Dorm Executive Council approves. 

Sports wear must be covered by a long coat or skirt when en route 
to physical education classes or to buildings or courts where active sports are 
being played, except on Saturdays. If these rules are not strictly adhered to. 
our Saturday privileges will be revoked. We feel that you tend to act like 
a lady if you are dressed like one. 



SUN BATHING 



You may sun bathe only in those areas set aside for this purpose by the 
Dean's Office. 'Special notices are sent.) Dress is in keeping with the usual 
standards of good taste. 



FIRE DRILLS 

There is no need to explain why we must have fire drills. The student fire 
marshal and House Director of each residence will be responsible for scheduling 
one fire drill a month. Don't gripe and complain when that bell goes off. It's 
for your own safety. When the time comes, leave your light on and your door 
open, put on a long coat and outdoor shoes, then walk quickly and quietly to 
your assigned exit for roll call. You may return when the signal is given. 



GENERAL REGULATIONS 

Entrances and Exits — Because so many of the residences are situated close to 
the street, all doors except the front door must be kept locked from 8 p.m. 
to 8 a.m. This is essential for your safety. 

Reception Halls and Lobbies may be used for study after closing hours with 
the House Director's consent. Although it is late there will be no smoking 
and the room must be kept tidy or the privilege will be withdrawn. Remem- 
ber — pull down the shades! 

The lobby and recreation room are public so be discreet and avoid embarrass- 
ing others and yourself by your behavior. Remember — you are also responsi- 
ble for the conduct of your guests. 

Smoking Regulations are employed for safety and not just to inconvenience 
or annoy you. Smoking is permitted everyw^here in the residence except the lob- 
by, is avoided while walking across campus and is prohibited in the classrooms. 

(19) 




Pets are fine at home but have no place at college. Don't feed that stray 
cat, he'll fall in love with your dorm and sneak in at every chance. He can't 
stay, so why encourage him? 

Telephone Calls may be received from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Mondays, 
to 10:30 p.m. on other week nights and to 11:00 p.m. on weekends. Emergency 
calls will be transmitted by the University Police who cover the switch board 
at all other times. You may call from the dorm extension phones to other 
campus extensions before 4 p.m. Keep your neighbor in mind and limit the 
conversation to five minutes — she wants to hear from her boyfriend too. 

House and Room Regulations — As the homemakers of tomorrow, we should 
practice tidiness. Beds must be made and rooms in order by 10 a.m. for room 
inspection by the House Director. Don't wait until you hear the rattle of her 
keys to start scrambling around the room. A neat rooms breeds a neat person. 

A dormitory House Committee with the House Director may set up house 
rules and endorse those required by the University. These are for safety and 
health reasons. 



1. Food and dishes may not be taken from the Dining Hall. 

2. Coke bottles must be returned to the cases provided for this purpose. 

3. The only electrical appliances allowed in rooms are fans, hairdryers, electric 

clocks, radios, and phonographs. 

4. After dark when lights are on, shades must be drawn. 

5. The dormitory is not a tenement house! Calling or talking from windows 
is taboo. 

6. Food may not be kept on window sills. 

7. Food kept in rooms must be placed in metal containers with tight covers.

Safety — Although we like to think everyone is trustworthy, many strangers 
gain access to the University residences. Lock the door to your room when you 
leave. It's worth the small effort (perhaps in gold). The University cannot be 
responsible for the loss or theft of articles. 

Never walk alone on campus after dark — you are risking your life and safety. 

SPECIAL NOTE: 

AWS has been lenient with the closing hours. Any woman student who 
leaves her residence hall after closing: hours is liable to get into much trouble 
and perhaps lose the privileg:e of living in the dormitory . . . and it is a privi- 
lege! If you put your best into this wonderful opportunity, you will love it. 
We hope that you will always remember Maryland and the friends you make 
here with happiness! It's up to you! 

USE OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES 

Possession or use of alcoholic beverages, including light wines and beer, is 
prohibited on the campus or in any fraternity or sorority house or at any 
function recognized by the University as a student organization. 

According to Maryland state law it is unlawful to sell or furnish any alcoholic 
beverages at any time to a minor under twenty-one years of age either for his 
own use or for the use of any other person. In Prince George's County it is 
unlawful for any person under the age of twenty-one: 

1. To enter the premises of a holder of a class B Beer, Wine, and Liquor license 
between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. unless in the immediate company of 
one of his parents or legal guardian; 

2. to enter the premises of the holder of a Class B or Class D Beer or Beer and 
Light Wine license, except for the purpose of obtaining or consuming food, 
unless accompanied by a parent or guardian; 

3. to purchase alcoholic beverages or misrepresent his age to obtain alcoholic 
beverages or to have them on or about his person.

HELPFUL HINTS 



HIT THE BOOKS 

First and ioreniost. ihv Uni\crsity ol Maryland is a community for 
learning. During your years here, much of your time will be devoted to 
developing yourself academically, as well as socially. Set up a study sched- 
ule and stick to it. Then there will be hours for extra-curricular activities 
and social life. 

GET THAT FRIENDLY FEELING 

The University of Maryland is a huge place with students coming from 
all over the world. Be friendly and interested in everyone around you, for 
you will cherish these friendships during your college life and afterwards. 

GROUP LIVING TAKES WORK 

Dormitoiy life is fun. but large group living calls for extra consideration 
of others. One of your first and most important friends is your roommate. 
Respect her ideas and she'll return your cooperation with true friendship. 
Remember — those walls are thin — gossip and loud conversations carry far. 

YOUR COLLEGE ROOM 

Your room will probably contain beds, desks, straight chairs, a floor lamp, 
dressers and closets. You'll need to bring your own blankets, pillows, irons, 
extension cords, desk lamps, etc. You may bring your own towels and sheets 
or rent them from the laundry service. As for curtains, spreads, and rugs — 
why don't you wait and plan the colors and style with your new roommate? 
Washing machines, dryers, and ironing boards can be found in the laundry 
rooms of each dorm. 

"BIG SIS" CAN HELP 

Your Big Sister in the dorm can be a helping hand. Do not hesitate to 
confide in her and ask her advice. She can be of invaluable assistance, par- 
ticularly during orientation, registration, and the first hectic days of classes. 

ANOTHER HELPING HAND 

The student counselors in your dorm have been trained to help you with 
some of the more baffling little problems that often turn up. Whether it's 
dates or grades, or what to do in general, you will find them sympathetic 
listeners. With someone to talk with, your problem is half gone! 

FORGET YOUR CAR 

Due to the inadequate parking facilities, it would be advisable not to bring 
your car on campus unless it is a physical or financial necessity. You will 
soon find that tires and text books don't mix. 

(24) 



TAKE YOUR PICK 

The panorama of activities is so broad and varied that your every interest 
and talent can be satisfied. But don't spread yourself too thin. Join in ac- 
tivities sparingly your first semester as you adjust to your studies and college 
living. The wise and capable co-ed does a few things well. 

MIND YOUR P's AND Q's 

Most of you know what to do and when to do it, so just a few special 
words of college etiquette advice. Stand up whenever a dean, housemother, 
or older woman enters the room, especially a guest. Always introduce your 
guest to the housemother. Avoid chewing gum in public, smoking while 
walking across campus, embarrassing yourself and others by your conduct 
in the Dining Hall and at parties with public displays of aflfection. Love 
is grand, but . . . ! 

GO TO CHURCH 

An important aspect of college life is a faith to live by and a belief in God. 
Our chapel on campus is available for students of all denominations. On 
Sunday, Catholic masses are held at 8:00 a.m., 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. 
An Interdenominational Protestant service is held at 11:00 a.m. In addi- 
tion to the chapel, there are many other churches in the College Park area 
waiting to have you in their congregations. 

WHAT TO WEAR 

The question of clothes, ahvays a big one, is easily solved at Maryland 
University where the dress is traditionally casual. To alleviate the closet 
problem and to fit in best with other Maiylanders, bring a limited, but ad- 
justable wardrobe. For classes most girls prefer light cottons when it's warm 
and skirts with sweaters or blouses in the fall and winter. For casual fool- 
wear tennis shoes, loafers, and saddle shoes with ankle or knee socks arc 
worn. Casual wear is preferred at basketball games and neighborhood 
movies, but suits or wool dresses and heels are appropriate for football 
games, weekend parties and trips to Washington. Do bring a few dressy 
dresses for special dates, and for teas and church. Gloves and hats are a 
must for the latter two. To a Md. U. co-ed the word "fomial" means any- 
thing from a cocktail dress to a full-length gown, so bring your favorites. 
And above all don't forget your trench coats and boots — unfortunately 
you will be needing them. (Also see p. 19.) 

PUT IN A NUTSHELL 

To sum it all up, be friendly, study hard, be considerate and discreet, 
participate in the activities that interest you most. Above all, don't be 
afraid to ask questions. 

Remember, your fellow students, your housemother, the deans and the 
faculty all want to be your friends. Make the most of your college life — 
you'll never regret it.

WRA 



'We can't all be captains, some have to be crew; 
There's something for all of us here; 
There's big work to do; there's lesser to do; 
And the task we must do is near. 

'If you can't be a highway, then just be a trail, 
If you can't be a sun, be a star. 
It isn't by size that you win or you fail — 
Be the Best of whatever You Are."

INTRAMURALS 



A summer of fun and relaxation . . . but now it is time to concentrate 
on those books! However, WRA ofTers a wonderful program of intramural 
sports for recreation between study hours! 

Each season brings forth some popular activities. In the fall tennis singles, 
badminton doubles, archery, bowling and ping pong offer a challenge. The 
winter season brings basketball, volleyball and badminton singles, while 
springtime produces the swimming meet, softball and tennis doubles. CO-ED 
volleyball and bowling tournaments will be planned in cooperation with the 
Men's Intramural Department. 

Intramural tournaments are arranged on an organizational level; you 
play for your dormitory, sorority or the Daydodgers. Your WRA repre- 
sentative, in dorm or sorority meetings, will keep you informed of the team 
and individual sport schedules. 



mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmi 







A SPORT FOR 



EVERY GIRL 



AND 



EVERY GIRL 



IN A SPORT 



The Gamma Phi's try to stop 
a DG basket in an intra- 
mural game. 




Since the Daydodgers have a more difficult time seeing each other, their 
representative will call a meeting before each team sport tournament to 
get organized. Individual sports enthusiasts may obtain entry blanks either 
from their WRA representative or the VVRA office in Preinkert Field House. 
That is all, and you will be notified when to play. 

Several of the dorms and sororities assist with the intramural program 
by donating the trophies which are awarded to the tournament wmners at 
the annual Spring Banquet. The tournament managers are usually mem- 
bers of these "sponsoring" groups. A trophy must be won three consecutive 
years to become a permanent possession. 

Dress for intramurals is CASUAL. However, tennis shoes in the gym 
and bowling shoes at the alleys are always worn. Equipment for practice 
or individual activity may be checked out from Preinkert Field House Mon- 
day through Friday from 4:00 to 5:15 p.m. 

(31) 



The swimming pool in Prcinl^ert is open from 4:00 to 5:15 on Monday, 
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons and on Wednesday nights 
from 6:30 to 8:00. Bring self and cap. Suits and towels will be supplied. 

GO-RECREATIONAL swimming is held at Cole Activities Building on 
Friday nights from 7:30 to 9:30 and on Sundays from 1:00 to 5:30 and 
7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Bring self, cap and bathing suit of course! 

Perhaps most important in WRA is the fact that you do not have to be 
an expert to take part. The emphasis of the intramural program is on FUN 
and the participation of everyone — not on winning and the participation of 
only the more highly skilled. You are encouraged to try your hand at any 
activitv. Be seeinsf vou!

ANNUAL SPRING BANQUET 



Every spring WRA climaxes its year's activities with the traditional ban- 
quet. At this time the newly elected WRA officers are installed, Sigma 
Tau Epsilon taps its new members, and the tournament trophies are award- 
ed. The culmination of these activities is the eagerly awaited presentation 
of the WRA Participation Cup. Besides being an event for these purposes, 
the banquet also presents an opportunity for much enjoyment and hilarity 
as the humorous events of the past year are reviewed and laughed about. 

Under the chairmanship of Loudell Insley, the May, 1961. Banquet was 
held at the Langley Park Hot Shoppe. Miss Bertha Adkins, highlighted 
the evening with her address about the American woman and recreation. 
Miss Adkins. the new Headmistress of Foxcroft School in Virginia, has had 
the distinction of being the first woman Under Secretary of the Department 
of Health, Education, and Welfare. As Miss Adkins' schedule is quite busy, 
WRA was pleased and honored to have her speak to the group. 

In her speech Miss Adkins commended WRA and its officers for their 
contributions to the field of recreation. She pointed out that in our modern 
competitive world it is increasingly important for women to develop friendly 
competitive spirits so that they may better enjoy life. This is a diflFerent 
idea from the one held in many other countries in which a regimented 
competitive spirit is developed. Miss Adkins' speech inspired the audience 
to continue encouraging everyone to participate in WRA activities regard- 
less of her abilities in a sport. 

Everyone who has participated in WRA is welcome at the banquet. We'll 
be expecting you this spring!

and the new Headmistress of Foxcroft School, gives her address at the May, 1961, WRA Banquet. 





AFFILIATED CLUBS 



Two performing groups are affiliated with ^\'RA — Modern Dance and 
Aqualiners. These clubs. OPEN TO BOTH MEN AND WOMEN, add 
to the variety of the AVRA program and to your enjoyment either as a par- 
ticipant or as a receptive viewer. 

AQUALINERS 

Do you enjoy swimming^ If so. Acjualiners is the club for you! If you 
are a fairly strong swimmer and can learn new skills quicklv. there is a place 
for you. 

Last year was mainly one of reorganization and setting up the new tr}'- 
out system. Demonstrations were gi\en for nearby high schools as well as 
for the University campus. Plans are being made for similar demonstra- 
tions for 1961-62 to be climaxed with a big water pageant in the spring. 
The numbers are choreographed, and the scenery and costumes are designed 
and made by the club members. Practices will be held eveiy Tuesday and 
Thursday night. 

Come out and join the area's only synchronized swimming group! 

(40) 



MODERN DANCE 

"Interest is the first qualification" for nienihcrship in the Modern Dance 
Club, and it gives an opportunity lor creative expression as well as recrea- 
tion and enjoyment. 

Those with little or no experience are welcome to join the Beginning 
Group at 6:00 p.m. eveiy Tuesday to learn the basic techniques and con- 
struction ol a dance. Participation in group dances and helping with pub- 
licity, costumes and back stage w^ork for the various performances arc the 
main activities of the group. The Advanced Group meets on Tuesday 
evenings at 7:00 and selects its members from those with previous experi- 
ence. 

The Modern Dance Club members are constantly rehearsing for their 
many programs and demonstrations. Last February they performed at the 
Fine Arts Festival at North Carolina State College in Raleigh and in March 
climaxed the year with their Annual Concert on campus. This latter per- 
fonnance was repeated at Atlantic City at the National Convention of the 
American Association for Health. Physical Education and Recreation and 
won much acclaim for the Maryland Group. Some of the members took 
part in dances presented in August before the International Congress of 
Physical Education and Sports for Girls and Women held in Washington 
D. C. ^ 

Think you might be interested in joining such an illustrious group? Come 
visit us — you're welcome! 





WINNER 

1960-61 
DAYDODGERS 




WRA PARTICIPATION CUP 

The presentation of the WRA Participation Cup at the annual Spring 
Banquet is the climax of the year's activities. To win this cup, an organi- 
zation must have been active in most of the events sponsored by WRA 
throughout the year. Participation points are awarded to each dormitory, 
sorority, and the Daydodgers for taking part in intramurals, interest groups 
and affiliated clubs. Points are also given for placing in the tournaments, 
but it is not necessary to be the champion in order to win the cup. 

The Daydodgers pulled quite an upset this spring when they won the 
honor for the third consecutive year and RETIRED the 12-year old cup. 
They accumulated 421 points with a wide range of activities. Nip and tuck 
most of the way — until the Daydodgers drew out in front at the close of 
second semester — was Caroline Hall with 345 points. Alpha Chi Omega 
took third place with 296 points and Wicomico Hall was fourth with 261. 

There wdll be a new Participation Cup this year, and the field is wide 
open. The Daydodgers wish each organization the best of luck for 1961-62 
but warn one and all that they have hopes of repeating their accomplishment.
