President, of Maryville 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- 

President of Maryville College 



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. 


Section I 




"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. * 


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. 


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 


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.,- 

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. 


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. 



Section 11 



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.

Hello, New Girls! ' 

I know each of you must be very excited, 
because coming to Maryville is something to get 
excited about. You are indeed lucky to be one 
of those in college this year, for so many have 
had to discontinue their education. Let us 
remember this as next year we strive to live 
up to our highest ideals and hopes. 

Y.W.C.A. has a place for each of you next 
year, but it is up to you to do your part. We 
hope to see each of you on our hikes, helping 
at the missions and in our Sunday worship 

Our motto for the coming year is "Laborers 
in the Harvest." May the next year bring you 
many joys while laboring in His harvest.

CHRISTIAN SERVICE. Maryville's Y.W.C.A. is 
open to all the girls on the Hill. 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. 

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." 





Again I say welcome to each and everyone i 
of you new girls. I am not the only one who- 
is looking forward to meeting you — there are ' 
many others. We hope that the minu.e you J 
arrive here you will feel at home and will soon i 
become as much a part of Maryville College as J 
any of us. It is a wonderful thing to be a part j 
of, too. j 


I am sure you have in store for you some of • 
the happiest and busiest days of your life. If i 
you have not already heard from your Xu i 
Gamma leader, you will ; and she will be able :: 
to give you suggestions which might be of ■ 
assistance to you. ' 

I will be seeing you in September, girls. i 

Sincerely, j 


Nu Gamma Chairman ] 



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. 


The Artist Series, originally an activity of 
the Y.M.C.A., is now managed by a faculty 
committee assisted by the "Y's". 


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. 


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

COLLEGE SERVICE. The se^^^ce of the '-Y" ] 
begins when a student enrolls. An upperclass- 1 
man assumes special responsibility for writing ; 
to him during the summer and introducing him \ 
to the campus and old students when he arrives j 
on the Hill. A Frosh Fellowship Club helps ;■ 
new men get acquainted and adjusted. The ; 
program continues with a watermelon pow-wow \ 
and a mountain hike in the fall and the annual 1 
banquet in the spring. The original sponser of ; 
interclass athletics, the "Y" now helps admin- " 
ister the intramural program. The Devotions 
Committee regularly distributes copies of "To- j 
day" to all of the college men. i 

COMMUNITY" SERVICE. The "Y" provides I 
ship for the program of the local cub pack and . 
a scout troop it started. i 

WORSHIP. The central feature of the pro- j 
gram is the Sunday afternoon meeting; through ! 
guest speakers, special music, or student dis- ^ 
cussion the attempt is made to reach the vari- ^ 
ous problems of college men with the vital ■'■■ 
resources of religion, j 


Section IV 




Pi Kappa De^ta 

Maryville has the honor of having the Ten- 
nessee Alpha Chapter of the national honorary 
fraternity, Pi Kappa Delta. Members of the 
debate squad have consistently ranked high in 
national and local tournaments. There is a 
a freshman debate squad as well as a varsity 
squad, both of which meet as classes and re- 
ceive college credit for their work.

Talented dramatic students may, upon meet- 
ing certain requirements for membership, bi'

Alpha Gamma Sigma 

Alpha Gamma Sigma was organized for the

uating class may be admitted provided the 
members have a grade point ratio of 6.5 or 
somewhat more than a B average. 



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. 


The Ministerial Asociation 

Organized in 1900, the Ministerial Association 
is comjKised of students that are candidates for

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 

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. 


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. All 
who serve in the project are enrolled in a class 
and receive academic credit for satisfactory com- 
pletion of the work each semester. 


Writers' Workshop 

Students who show interest and ability in 
literary work may be elected to the Writers' 
Workshop. The members are elected from the 
faculty and the junior and senior classes. Each 
member writes and reads aloud for criticism one 
paper a semester.

who are interested in Nature. The programs 
are planned to include movies, demonstrations, 
and similar entertainment. No technical know- 
ledge is required for membership.

preciation of art and in stimulating its mem- 
bers to creative work. There is a wide field 
of interest which includes architecture, sculp- 
ture, and other branches of creative art. 

I Disc Club 

The Disc Club is organized for music lovers 
who desire better understanding and appre- 
ciation of good music. Each program is built 
around one composer's work and is introduced 
by a qualified commentator. 

"M" Club 

The "M" Club membership is restricted to 
those girls who have earned the college letter 
by participation in the athletic activities spon- 
sored by the Point System. 

Language Clubs 

For students interested in modern languages 
and in the manners and customs of foreign 
countries, there is ' opportunity to gain con- 
fidence in the use of the foreign tongue, and 
to have enjoyment in the French, German and 
Spanish Clubs. The programs are varied fronn 
seeing pictures and hearing lectures to giving 
plays in the foreign language. 

Pre-Medical Club 

This club is organized to promote interest 
in medicine and in the medical profession. 
Anyone having interests along these lines is 
invited to join. 

The International Relations Club 

This club is to help students think intelli- 
igently about world affairs, "presents well-in- 
formed speakers, informal discussion groups, and 
a current events forum. 




The College Choir provides good training and 
sheer joy for those who are interested in sing- 
ing. 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 


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 



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. 

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. 



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 

"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. 


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. 


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. 


, 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. 


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. 


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. 


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. 


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.

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 


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 



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.

Common Sense For College Students 

Have regular hours for study— and use them 
for study. 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 

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- 


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.
