THE ALMA MATER
Where Chilhowee's lofty mountains
Pierce the southern blue,
Proudly stands our Alma Mater,
Noble, grand, and true.
As thy hilltop crowned with cedars.
Ever green appears;
So thy memory fresh shall linger
Through life's smiles and tears.
Lift the chorus, wake the echoes.
Make the welkin ring!
Hail the queen of all the highland!
Loud her praises sing.
Orange, garnet, float forever.
Ensign of our hill!
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater!
Hail to Maryville.
Note. — An erect standing position is assumed
at any time when the Alma Mater is
being played or sung.

GREETINGS FROM THE
PRESIDENT OF THE COLLEGE
May I extend greetings to every per-
son who joins our Maryville family of
1946-1947. We shall prize each of
you the more and perhaps expect the
more of you because we have been forced
for lack of room to turn away hundreds
of others who wanted to come.
It will be a whole year after V-J Day
when the Fall Semester opens. We con-
tinue to rejoice because the War is over.
But the terrific disturbances of the War
are far from over. People are distressed
by the disorder, the selfishness, and the
suffering seen all around the world, and
all feel the inconveniences, pressures, and
uncertainties of these days.
But Maryville College offers a fellow-
ship and a program that make fo/ happi-
ness and progress. I hope you will find
this a good place to be and the year a
good one to remember all through the
RALPH WALDO LLOYD
President of Maryville College
This little handbook is just an attempt
to give you some inside information about
Maryville College which the regular catalog
cannot include. We hope we can give you
an idea of the side of college life wh.ch
makes it so easy to forgot assignments for
a while; and also, we hope it may increase
your impatience to get into the "swing of
things" here at school.
"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 feeling
at the thought of soon seeing with your own
eyes the place you have v;suai;zed for so .ori-;.
Your train or bus is rapidly emptying; so get
out quickly. See those fellows and girls ojt
there with Maryville lapel pins and streamers
on their coats? They are looking for you; so
go to them if they don't grab yoj first.
If vou should not happen io see anvone
wearing a streamer, then keep vour 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 a'e 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 waii" for the next
Maryville bus. The buses run from Knoxville
to Maryville on the ha!f-ho^,r, 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 that the baggage you have with you
is taken care of, though you may have to
carry some of it.
You have six fairly long blocks to walk
across the town and up college hill. Tr.en
you are here. Your first destinatir^n is the
tables set up on the lawns at wh;ch you
receive yojr room reservations, turn in your
baggage checks for collection at" the freight
office, and ask any questions you like. The
girls at the information tables want to help
you, so don't be afraid to ask them.

You are probably too tired when you tirst
arrive to take a real survey of the campus, but
by evening you may feel like roaming. Let's
take a little tour of the campus novv.
You probably will come up the Corduroy
from town, so let's start our tour from the
gates there. Directly in front of us is the
white 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 ail kinds of entertainments are held.
Looking down the street from the Chapel is
a large yellow brick building, Carnegie Hall,
the men's dormitory; and across the street
from Carnegie is Memorial Hall, another girl's
In front of the Chapel is Anderson Hall, a
red brick building, one of the three oldest
buildings on the Hill. Here are located the
offices of President Lloyd, where sympathetic,
understanding counsel is given to all who need
it. Dean H-<nter's office where you go for
friendiy advice on more things than grades;
Miss Clemmie'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
States 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
12 MARYVILLE COLLEGE
Book Store also supplies a loan library called
the James R. 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
freshmen. On the first floor of Pearson's is
the dining hall with which you will soon
Behind Pearson's Hall to the left is the Ralph
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 con-
fined 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 VVillard Memorial
where President Lloyd lives. In Thaw Hall is
located the Lamar Memorial Library which
contains 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
War; 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 used for

Hall in which are located the chemistry,
physics, biology, 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 Recreation Center. You will quickly be-
come acquainted with this Center, for almost
every type of entertainment is provided for
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 cam-
puses of any college in America, and it is set
in unusually beautiful surroundings.

CHRISTIAN SERVICE. Maryviile's Y.W.C.A.
is open to all the girls on the Hill. It has
always 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 Gamma
Sigma, Pi Gamma Sigma, the Big Sister
WORSHIP SERVICES. The Sunday afternoon
worship services are planned to give inspiration
and help. Problems of vital interest to all

old girls have opportunity to assist in some
part of these services, and are greatly bene-
fitted 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 activi-
ties as the production of the May Day pageant,
semi-annual tennis tournaments, social service
work in the mission chapels and in the
orphanage, and various social activities for
the Y.W. members. The "Y" rooms in Thaw
Hall are especially well adapted and equipped
for group events or individual relaxation and
enjoyment. All members are invited 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 — "Onward with Christ."

to you all! You're the fortunate girls who
will be taking that big and important step
into a new realm of friendship and learning.
Maryville College is not only a place where
minds are broadened and interests deepened,

made and every busy day is rich with fun and
new experiences. Nu Gamma plays a leading
role in the latter side of this program, be-
cause it is through your Nu Gamma leader
that you will become acquainted with one
another and the school. During the first few
weeks your Nu Gamma group will have special
gatherings "just for fun." Sometime this
summer you will hear from your leader who
will be ready and willing to give suggestions
or answer questions about Maryville.

and recreational activity outside of the regu-
larly planned programs of the year.
The Recreation Room is the pride and joy of
all students because it is something which
they dreamed of, organized, planned and
finally made 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.
Tuesday 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
bowling. Sponsored by the Student Council,
Town Night has been a big success; and it
certainly helps to break the regularity of the
Vv'eek's work and study.

MARYVILLE'S ATHLETIC POLICY
Maryville stands for the well-rounded, well-
developed college life. For many years the
college has realized that one must not only
be developed mentally and morally but also
physically. As a result of this realization
Maryville College has placed an emphasis on
athletics of all kinds. Besides having inter-
collegiate athletics, there is also conducted
a well-developed and highly organized system
of Intramural athletics for men. Under the
leadership of Mrs. Verton M. Queener, coach
of women's athletics, the women have what
is known as the point system. Both of these
programs will be more fully described later.
Maryville does not buy her athletes. Those
who come to Maryville come with the under-
standing that places on her athletic teams
are open to physical fitness and average
scholastic ability; nothing else. In addition it
is true that athletic ability alone does not
"make" a student at Maryvlle. Weil-rounded
effort in other extra-curricular activity and
in the classroom is just as important.
If you have any athletic ability at all come
out for varsity sports, for you will help your-
self and the College.
On the night of September 21 the flood
lights of Wilson Field will be turned on and
the boys will be out there on the field
passing and kicking the ball around. The
campus will be crowded with excited students
and town people eager for the game to begin,
for it will inaugurate the beginning of another
40 MARYVILLE COLLEGE
football season at Maryvilie College — the first
since the beginning of the war. Because of
the scarcity of men, inter-collegiate athletics
have been non-existent during the past few
years. Last year inter-colleg:ate basketball,
baseball and tennis were resumed, and per-
haps this year we can add also track, wrestling
Athletics add a lot to the school spirit of
the campus, and Maryvilie is proud of her
teams and of all of you fellows who "go out"
for any kind of sport. Three cheers for you.
We'll be rootin'!
The intramural program provides Maryvilie
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 him-
self. Faculty teams or individuals may take
part in intramural activity but are not eligible
for awards. Sports which are included in the
intramural program are speedball, football,
basketball, swimming, track, and softball. A
phamphlet has been prepared in former years
which sets forth the organization, objectives,
regulations, point system and other informa-
tion concerning the program.
'M" HANDBOOK 41
As at most colleges, there are no longer
intercollegiate contests for women at Maryviiie.
For them has been substituted the Point Sys-
tem, directed by Mrs. Verton M. 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. Every 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, in-
door baseball, or volleyball earn 30 points for
their team. Taking part in swimming, track,
tennis, hiking or aerial dart tournaments en-
titles a girl to 50 points. Additional points
are awarded for sportsmanship, membership on
the squad, managing a team, and perfect at-
tendance. The observance of health rules
gives a maximum of 25 points a semester.
High scholarship adds a percentage of the
total. Members of "M" Club (those who
have earned at least 400 points) take a
mountain hike each spring, and enjoy several

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
"M" HANDBOOK 47
studies. They're not — at least not for any
student who has a reasonable amount of
brains and intellectual 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 done — grab it!
Spiritual "rickets" may be fashionable with
some students but you cannot walk with
undernourished 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 when you 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.
