RALPH WALDO LLOYD President, of Maryville College 'M" HANDBOOK GREETINGS FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE COLLEGE One of my privileges as President of the College is to write a few words of welcome for the *'M" Book. The request to write such a message is one of the many natural expressions of the friendly spirit for which Mary- ville students and faculty are noted. I am glad to welcome every student to our friendly and beautiful campus, to the disciplines of high quality col- lege work, and to the influence of ''The Maryville Spirit." "The Maryville Spirit" is not easy to define although it is very real to thousands. In general outline it has long been described as containing the following elements: (1) Breadth of Human Interest, (2) Thorough Scholarship, (3) Genuine Religion, and (4) Unselfish Service. These are essential qualities of life in time of war or peace. I hope you will find them prominent at Mary- ville. RALPH WALDO LLOYD President of Maryville College MARYVILLE COLLEGE PREFACE Scared of coming to college, freshman? Don't he. Take it from us, Maryville is the friend- liest plage in the world. You see, through the Y.M.C.A. and Y.W.C.A. your initiation to col- lege life will not be one of hazing and embar- rassment. You'll be greeted by members of both the Y's, and they will do their level best to make you feel at home in the shortest possible time. This little handbook is just our attempt to give you some Inside information about Mary- ville College which the regular catalog cannot include. We hope we can give you an idea of the side of college life which makes it so easy to forget assignments for a while ; and also, we hope it may increase your impatience to get into "the swing of things" here at school. ■M" HANDBOOK Section I GENERAL INTRODUCTION TO MARYVILLE COLLEGE MARYVILLE COLLEGE "Knoxville Terminal! Change here for all points south!" Hot dog! This is it. You're tired, dirty and somewhat unnerved by your trip, and you have a frightened, excited feeing at the thought, of soon seeing with your own eyes the place you have visualized for so '.ong. Your train or bus is rapidly emptying ; so get out quickly. See those fellows and girls out there with Maryville lapel pins and streamers on their coats? They are looking for you; so go to them if they don't grab you first. If you should not happen to see anyone wearing a streamer, then keep your eyes open, for anyone carrying luggage with a Maryville sticker on it like your own. Perhaps you have already met Maryville people on the same bus or train, but if you're alone and are coming by train at an unusually early or late hour. you'd better catch a taxi to the bus depot. If you are coming by bus, just wait for the next Maryville bus. The buses run from Knoxville to Maryville on the hour, every hour except ;§ from 11:00 P. M. to 5:00 A. M. * ■i During the day you will be greeted at Knox- '] ville and again at Maryville. Here the fellows ^ will see tha.t the baggage you have with you is taken care of, though you may have to i carry some of it. You have six fairly long blocks to walk across the town and up college hill. Tlien you are here. Your first destination is the tables set up on the lawns at which you receive your room reservations, turn in your baggage checks for collection at the frieght office, and ask any questions you like. The girls at the informa- tion tables want to help you, so don't be afraid to ask them. 'M" HANDBOOK You are probably too tired when you first arrive to 'cake a real survey of the campus, but by evening you may feel like roaming. Let's take a little tour of the campus now. You proI)a))ly came up the Corduroy from town, so let's start our tour from the gates there. Directly in fK)nt of us is the whit? frame building Baldwin Hall, one of the girls' dormitories. To the right is Voorhees Chapel, the dark red brick building in which the daily morning worship is conducted and where all kinds of entertainments are held. Looking down the street from the Chapel is a large yellow" brick building .Carnegie Hall, the men's dor- mitory ; and across the street from Carnegie is Memorial Hall, another girl's dormitory. In front of the Chapel is Anderson Hall, a red brick building, one of the three oldest build- ings on the HiM. Here are located the offices of President Lloyd, where sympathetic, under- standing counsel is given to all who need it; Dean Hunter's office where you go for friendly advice on more things than grades ; Miss Clem- mie's office where you may find out about self- help; the treasurer's office, where you will get rid of your money; and the registrar's office, with which you will become very familiar. The rest of the building is devoted to classrooms. As we walk out of Anderson past the foun- tain in front of us is the Book Store, where desk and study equipment can be bought at reasonable prices. A branch of the United vStates Post Office is located in the book room. From here mail is delivered to the dormitories and offices. Mail should be addressed: College Station, Maryville, Tennessee, with the addition of your dormitory and room number. The MAKYVILLE COLLEGE Book Store also supplies a loan library called the James E. Hills Library-. To the left of the Book Store is Pearson's Hall, a large brick building with white columns, another dormitory for women. Most upperclass women room in Pearson's, while Memorial and Baldwin accommodate the sophomores and fresh- men. On the first floor of Pearson's is the dining hall Math which you will soon becom.,- faimiliar. Behind Pearson's Hall to the left is the Ealph Max Lamar Hospital. A free clinic is held twice a week, and in case of slight illnesses no charge is made for nursing. The hospital has a very reasonable charge for patients confined to the hospital. On leaving Pearson's Hall we shall go to Thaw Hall, the newest and largest building on the Hill. Just before reaching Thaw, glance to the left and you will see the Willard Memorial where President Lloyd lives. In Thaw Hall is located the Lamar Memorial Library wh'ch con- tains over 50,000 books. The library is open twelve hours a day from Monday to ' Saturday. The museum is located in a room partitioned off the library to the left of the entrance. In this room are found collections of rare objects from Japan, Korea, and China; relics of the Indians who used to live in this region of Tennessee: antiques from the Civil AVar; a model of our own college when it was known as "The Log College;" and many other interesting and valuable objects representative of the world. The second floor is nsed for classrooms. We now leave Thaw and take a short cut over to Bartlett and the swimming pool, pass- ing to the left of Fayerweather Science Hall in which are located the chemistry, physics, bi- ology, zoology, and home economics laboratories and lecture rooms. 'M" HANDBOOK Bartlett Hall is one of the oldest Y.M.C.A. buildings in the South. It was built in 1901, the brick being made by the students them- selves under the leadership of Kin Takahashi, a Japanese student. In this building are located the Y.M.C.A. Auditorium; a small gymnasium and the newly organized Recreation Center. You will quickly become acquainted with this Center, for almost every type of entertainment is pro- vided for you there. The swimming pool, where all the meets are; held, is located in a separate building, to the left of Bartlett Hall. The pool itself is twenty-five by seventy-five feet. It is open for use on regular days throughout the week. Behind Bartlett is the Alumni Gymnasium, one hundred ten feet square, equipped with a, maple floor and collapsible bleachers. As we walk out past the swimming pool we see the football field on the left and the base- ball diamond on the right just before we enter the college woods. The woods are popular for picnics and Sunday afternoon walks, and the natural ampitheatre in the center of the woods is used for various programs during the year. From the campus can be seen the distant Cumberland mountains on the west and the Great Smokies on the east. Truly. Maryville College has one of the most beautiful campuses of any college in America, and it is set in unusually beautiful surroundings. MAEYVILLE COLLEGE 'M" HANDBOOK Section 11 STUDENT GOVERNMENT MARYVILLR COLLEGE The Student Council is an active organi- zation in which all of the classes are repre- sented. It is your organization and your voice in the activities of the school. Student problems and ideas are discussed and brought to the faculty for consideration. We call it a clearing house between "management and labor." Last year the Council organized and sponsored a recreation center for facul y and students, and also was responsible foV Town Night. "We are looking forward to a grand year. Lets all cooperate. (For the Constitution of the Student Body see- pages 45-58.)

It has al- ways endeavored to help girls find real satis- faction in well-balanced Christian living. Keep- ing this aim ever in view, Y.W. has organized and conducts such groups as Nu Gramma Sigma, Pi Gamma Sigma, /the Big Sister movements. WORSHIP SERVICES. The Sunday afternoon worship services are planned to give inspiration and help. Problems of vital interest to all college girls are presented — personal, social, and inter- national problems. Both new and old girls have opportunity to assist in some part of these services, and are greatly benefitted by the actual participation. COMMUNITY SERVICE AND RECREATION. Besides the joint activities with Y.M.C.A. the program of the Y.W.C.A. includes such activities as the production of the May Day pageant, semi- annual tennis tournaments, social service work in the mission chapels and in the orphanage, and var- ious social activities for the Y.W. members. The •'Y" rooms in Thaw Hall are- especially well adapt- ed and equipped for group events or individual relaxation and enjoyment. All members are in- vited to use the "Y" rooms, which are always open throughout the day. You will find that the members of the "Y" cabinet, the Nu Gamma and Pi Gamma leaders, and the old members of the "Y" are willing to help in every way possible. Give Y.W. a chance to be your friend and guide and join the old members as they strive toward the year's motto— "Laborers in the Harvest." 22 MARYVILLE COLLEGE | \ 1 1 NU GAMMA CHAIRMAN'S WELCOME WELCOME NEW GIRLS! j Again I say welcome to each and everyone i of you new girls.

Devotional Joint devotional meetings are conducted co- operatively by the "Y's" several times each year. One Saturday each spring the cabinets hold Retreat away from the campus for plan- ing and devotionals. Cultural The Artist Series, originally an activity of the Y.M.C.A., is now managed by a faculty committee assisted by the "Y's". Recreational Barnwarming, largely staged by the YWCA, is the gala affair that everyone attends on Thanksgiving evening in the Alumni Gymna- sium. The proceeds help meet some world need. Service The Chatterbox is a social center and a convenient place to buy food, refreshiments, and necessities. New students as they arrive on the campus are directed and aided by "Y" representatives. This handbook itself is a joint production. MAEYVILLE COLLEGE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION The Pres;dent's Welcome Hello there, New Fellows, Congratulations !

'M" HANDBOOK SOCIAL In the past there were four literary societies on the Hill. Piecently all of the organizations have swerved from their original purpose, and have become purely social societies. The girl's societies, Bainonian and Theta Epsilon, are the sister societies of the men's organizations known as Athenian and Alpha Sigma. The societies meet every Saturday evening for programs of interest and fun. ORGANIZATIONS RELIGIOUS The Ministerial Asociation Organized in 1900, the Ministerial Association is comjKised of students that are candidates for the Christian ministry. It has for its object the enlistment of its members in various forms of active Christian work and the discussion of themes relating to the work of the ministry. Its members conduct regular preaching and pas- toral work in the county prison, local missions, and the country churches in the vicinity of Maryville. Student Volunteers Since 1894 the students have maintained f^ Student Volunteer organization which is one of the strongest religious influences in the College. It is composed not only of those who have pledged themselves to the foreign field, but of those who are interested in this type of work. Regular meetings of the group are held Sunday evenings after Vespers. Some phase of mission- ary work is considered, and frequently mission- aries on furlough provide valuable and inspiring first-hand material. 30 MAEYVILLE COLLEGE Parish Project The Parish Project is a program of Christian service to communities in the vicinity of Mary- ville. Students who volunteer and are accepted for service in the Project carry on various types of service activity. These include Sunday school teaching and administration, teaching weelt-day .Bible classes in a selected group of public schools, supervising young people's societies. and the leadership of character-bui.ding activity groups for boys and girls. The project is jointly sponsored and supported by the Board of National Missions, the Board of Christian Ed- ucation. Maryville College, and the Xew Provi- dence Presbyterian Church of Maryville.

It is composed of approximately fifty-five students who are admitted to its ranks only After passing rigid voice tests. In addition to- its participation in the daily chapel and weekly Vesper services, the choir takes part in special programs on the campus and in town, and some- times gives concerts in nearby cities. Glee Clubs The Glee Clubs are composed of a limited ] number of men and women who are interest-ed. ■ and who successfully pass the voice tests given, j The outstanding program of the year given by ' the Glee Clubs is the yearly spring concert. ■] Band 1 The College Band is open to students with a fair ability to play a band instrument. Al- : though no college credit is given for partici- i pation in this organization, band letters can : be earned by faithful members. 'j Orchestra Opportunity to become a member of the orchestra is given to all interested students who have sufficient musical training. Under certain conditions such membership carries limited cred- it. A spring concert is also given by the or- chestra. 1 'M" HANDBOOK SOCIAL Pi Gamma Sigma This Organization is sponsored by the Y.W. C.A. to promote fellowship between the town girls attending college and the dormitory girls. A luncheon is held every two weeks and an interesting program . presented. Originally formed for the purpose of hiking, this women's club has gradually taken on more varied activity. The membership is limited to eight persons. Pi Upsilon This club is sometimes called the Hi Trail Club. Like the "B. G." Club it is a hiking club organized- for the men, membership being limited to twelve persons. PUBLICATIONS Highland Echo The "Highland Echo" is the Maryville College student paper which is delivered weekly. The editorial staff consists of members of the four college classes, selected on a competitive basis. Freshmen students are allowed to try out for the "Echo" through their English classes at the first of the year, twelve apprentices being chosen each year by the examination of samples of their writings in competitive try outs. 34 MAEYVILLE COLLEGE Chilhowean The "Chilhowean" is the annual year-book which is published by the members of the junior class assisted by representatives of the sophomore class. Containing a summarized rec- ord of the year's work in all departments of the college, this makes an attractive souvenir. After ordering their 1946 annuals, freshmen and new* students will find it informative and interesting to sample last year's or earlier copies in the library. "M" Book The "M" Book is published each vear bv the Y.W.C.A. and the Y.M.C.A. and is designed to orient the new students to some extent to the type of program which Maryville presents in the cultural, religious, athletic and social fields. Copies are sent out to each new student before he comes to school. PROGRAMS RELIGIOUS February Meetings Since 1877 February Meetings have been a " part of the religious program. A prominent! 1 religious speaker conducts daily services, the "; object of which is to deepen the spiritual life on the campus. 'M" HANDBOOK 35 Fred Hope Drive The annual Fred Hope drive is for the col- lection of funds for use in the work of an African mission school of which Mr. Hope, at former Maryville student, is superintendent. Vespers , A Vesper Service is conducted in the chapel each Sunday evening during the college year. The service includes a sermon by some out- standing person, either a faculty member or a visiting spealcer and special music by the Mary- ville College Choir. Messiah Each year on the Sunday before school is dismissed for the Christmas vacation the Fine Arts Department presents Handel's "Messiah" with a chorus of a hundred or more voices, built around the nucleus of the choir and the glee clubs, accompanied by the college orchestra. CULTURAL Artist's Series These urograms are sponsored by the Y.W.C. A. and the Y.M.C.A. Each year the college brings to the campus a number of featured artists. Tickets are sold to the public; the cost to the student is included in the Student Activity Fee. MARYVILLE COLLEGE Guest Speakers ^ Each year the College brings many outstand- ' ing speakers from various parts of the state, J the country, and the world to give the students ^ first-hand information on the type of work ' which they do. ENTERTAINMENT The Social Committer which is organized by the Student Council has charge of all social and recreational- activity outside of the regularly planned programs of the year. Recreation Room The Recreation Room is the pride and joy of all students because it is something which they dreamed of, organized, planned and finally madie a reality. The Room is open at certain times each day to any student who wants to play a' game of ping-pong, or try his hand at shuffle- board or badminton, or simply curl up in a comfortable chair and read a magazine. Town Night Ttiesda'y night is not just Tuesday night anymore — it's Town Night, the night when you can get off the campus to see a movie or go boMiing. Sponsored by the Student Council, Town Night has been a big success; and it certainly helps to break the regularity of the week's work and study. 'M" HANDBOOK 37 Section V ATHLETICS 38 MARYVILLE COLLEGE INTERCOLLEGIATE For over half a century Maryville has main- tained teams in intercollegiate competition. Be- cause few men remain at Maryville and other colleges, there will probably be no intercoUtgiate athletics at Maryville for the duration of the INTRAMURAL The intramural program provides Maryville men with a chance to participate in various non-varsity sports for good fellowship, vigorous competition, and physical fitness. Running through the year as part of the physical edu- cation program, two types of competition are offered. The division or team sports are con- ducted in two leagues, society and independent, operating on the same schedule. Play-offs are held between league champions. The all-college sports are engaged in individually or in small groups, each person representing himself. Fac- ulty teams or individuals may take part in in- tramural activity but are not eligible for awards. Sports which are included in the intramural pro- gram are speedball, football, basketball, swim- ming, track, and softball. A phamphlet has been prepared in former years which sets forth the organization, objectives, regulations, point system and other informa'Jon concerning the program. "M" HANDBOOK POINT SYSTEM As at most colleges, there are no longer intercollegiate contests for women at Maryville. For them has been substituted the Point Sys- tem, directed by Mrs. Evelyn N. Queener and her assistants. Like the men's intramural pro- gram, the Point System attracts those seeking voluntary and required exercise. Participation in the different sports qualifies a girl for a given number of points. To those earning over 300 points awards are made at the end of the year. Elvery girl must walk the seven-mile loop twelve times a year, swim twice a month, and spend an hour in exercise daily. Those who play basketball, soccer, indoor base- ball, or volleyball earn 30 points for their team. Taking part in swimming, track, tennis, hiking or aerial dart tournaments entitles a girl to 50 points. Additional points are awarded for sportsmanship, membership on the squad, man- aging a team, and perfect attendance. The ob- servance of health rules gives a maximum of 25 points a semester. High scholarship adds ai percentage of the total. Members of "M" Club (those who have earned at least 400 points) taka a mountain hike each spring, and enjoy several other activities. 40 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 1944-1945 AWARDS < "M" and Sweater — Winifred Sommers, 572; ] Evelyn Anderson, 560; Carol May Short, 555; -] Elsie Jean Cotton, 500.

Effective studying is partly a science and partly an art to be mastered by each individual through studying his own par- ticular habits and needs. "Tote fair" with the home folks. Match their sacrifice with your diligence. Write to them, especially Mother, at least once a week. Your neglect will convict you of the crime of ingratitude. Be yourself— your best self, consistently. If you have ideals, hold on to them ; if you have questions, ask them; if you have ideas, put them to work. Don't let anyone tell you that '•activities" are as important or more important than stud- "M" HANDBOOK 43 ies. They're not — at least not for any student who has a reasonable amount of brains and in- tellectual interest. If you haven't these, leave college now! When you get a chance to further a friend- ship with a professor, don't be a fool and think it isn't doner— grab it! Spiritual "rickets" may be fashionable with some students but you cannot walk with under- nourished legs. And walk you must to live, and live you must before you dare to die. So — go to church ; not to please the school, but to refill yourself with strength, courage, and truth in order that you may perform with the greatest ability your life tasks as you see them cut out before you. 'Experience is the stuff of growth; and you grow only w^hen ou reflect upon and evaluate your experiences and the experiences of the race, and then on the basis of such evaluations, act more wisely in the future from the way you have acted in the past.

Its directors are elected by the Synod of Mid-South of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. It is a Christian liberal arts college with the purpose of providing a general cultural education. During the war period it also rendered a special service in its Army Air Forces college training program.
