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. 



III. 



Lift the chorus, wake the echoes. 

Make the welkin ring! 
Hail the queen of all the highland! 

Loud her praises sing. 

Chorus 

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

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 
future. 

RALPH WALDO LLOYD 
President of Maryville College 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



PREFACE 



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. 



'M" HANDBOOK 




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 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. 



"M" HANDBOOK 11 



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 
dormitory. 

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 
become familiar. 

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 
classrooms. 

We now leave Thaw and take a short cli* 
over to Bartlett and the swimming pool, 

passing to the left of Fayerweather Science 



'M" HANDBOOK 13 



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 
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 cam- 
puses of any college in America, and it is set 
in unusually beautiful surroundings.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 



'M" HANDBOOK 15 



The Student Council is at the head of all 
student activity on the hill. It is composed 
of twenty-two representatives from the four 
classes. Its officers are also the officers of 
the Student Body. 

The Council is your voice in the school. It 
works in close association and is responsible

Y. W. C. A. ACTIVITY 

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 
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 international problems. Both new and 
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."

NU GAMMA CHAIRMAN'S WELCOME 



Hello, New Girls! 

Here's a sincere and wholehearted welcome 
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, 
but also a place where lasting friendships are 
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. 

All we Maryvillians are looking forward to 
knowing you and sharing with you all the 
things that make college life happy and 
profitable. 

We'll be seeing you at the station! 



Sincerely, 

ELSIE JEAN COTTON 

Nu Gamma Chairman

YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

The President's Welcome 

Hi Fellows, 

Just a brief welcome from "Y". Most of 
you new men have heard or are hearing from 
individual members of the Y.M.C.A. telling 
you of our plans to meet you in Knoxville 
and on the campus. The Maryville "Y" plays 
an important part in the activities of the 
first week of school and we hope to help 
you all we can. 

We sincerely hope that your contact with 
the YMCA will not end with the first week. 
We hope that you will join us as active 
members to share all the fellowship and the 
friendships that make "Y" mean so much. 
Our social program is well developed and we 
want you to share all of it. We likewise 
need your support of our personal spiritual- 
growth program as we attempt to keep "In 



Step with Him."

Y. M. C. A. ACTIVITY 



THE MARYVILLE COLLEGE Y.M.C.A. offers 
to all Maryville men a great opportunity for 
Christ-centered fellowship and service. 

COLLEGE SERVICE. The service of the "Y" 
begins when a student enrolls. An upperclass- 
man assjmes special responsibility for writing 
to him during the Summer and introducing him 
to the campus and old students when he 
arrives on the Hill. A Frosh Fellowship Club 
helps new men get acquainted and adjusted. 
The program corrtinues with a watermelon 
pow-wow and a mountain hike in the fail 
and the annual banquet in the spring. The 
original sponsor of interclass athletics, the 
"Y' now helps administer the intramural pro- 
gram. The Devotions Committee regularly dis- 
tributes copies of "Today" to all of the 
college men. 

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

WORSHIP. The central feature of the 
program is the Sunday afternoon meeting; 
through guest speakers, special music, or 
student d.scussion the attempt is made to 
reach the various problems of college men with 
the vital resources of religion. 



26 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



JOINT ACTIVITIES OF Y. M. AND Y. W. 



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- 
ning and devotionals. 



Cultural 

The Artist's 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 Y.W.C.A., 
is the gala affair that everyone attends on 
Thanksgiving evening in the Alumni Gym- 
nasium. The proceeds help meet some world 
need. 

Service 

The Chatterbox is a social center and a 
convenient place to buy food, refreshments, 
and necessities. New students as they arrive 
on the campus are directed and aided by "Y" 
representatives. This handbook itself is a joint 
production.

In the oast there were four literary societies 
on the Hili. Recently 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 
socieiies meet every Saturday evening for pro- 
grams of interest and fun.

forms of active Christian work and the dis- 
cussion of themes relating to the work of 
the ministry. its members conduct regular 
preaching and pastoral work in the county 
prison, local missions, and the country 
churches in the vicinity of Maryville. 

Student Volunteers 

Since 1894 the students have maintained a 
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 missionary work is 
considered, and frequently missionaries on 
furlough provide valuable and inspiring first- 
hand rrfaterial.

and sheer joy for those who are interested in 
singing. 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. This past year its program in- 
cluded a concert tour through parts of 
Tennessee and Alabama.

tryouts. 



34 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



ChilKowean 

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 
record 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 year by 
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 
religious speaker conducts daily services, the 
object of which is to deepen the spiritual life 
on the campus. 



'M" HANDBOOK 35

tendent until his recent death.

Artist's Series 

These programs 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 pub- 
lic; the cost to the student is included in the 
Student Activity Fee. 

Program for 1946-1947 

Egon Petri, Dutch Pianist, Nov. 2, 1946. 

Mr. Petri will make several days stay here, 
giving two musical seminars followed by his 
recital. He is without doubt one of the 
finest pianists in the world. This marks his 
second appearance within three years at Mary- 
ville College. 

A Night in Old Vienna, Jan. 25, 1947 

This is an attempt to recapture with five 
outstanding young American Singers, the spirit 
and flavor of a musical evening when Vienna 
was at its height. Two singers known to 
the Maryville audience appearing in this group 
are John Guerney and Mona Bradford. it 
provides a unique evening of musical enter- 
tainment. 

Grisha Golnboff, Violinist, Feb. 24, 1947. 

Twelve years ago this twenty-three-year old 
violinist was an internationally-known child 
prodigy. He now appears as a mature vio- 
linist. His performances disclose a fine sense 
of style, marked by sensitive poetic lyricism. 
He handles the violin with no technical diffi- 
culties, producing a tone immaculately pure 
with silken smoothness and singing quality.

ENTERTAINMENT 

The Social Committee which is organized by 
the Student Council has charge of all social 
and recreational activity outside of the regu- 
larly 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 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. 

Town Night 

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.

Section V 
ATHLETICS 



'M" HANDBOOK 39 



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. 



INTER-COLLEGIATE ATHLETICS 

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 
and swimming. 

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'! 



INTRAMURAL 

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 



POINT SYSTEM 

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 
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 
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 



"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.

Maryville, Tennessee 

One Hundred and Twenty-Eighth Year 
Begins August 27, 1946 



Maryville College is one of the 
important church-related institutions of 
America, and seeks to be true to the 
noblest traditions of the association of 
education and religion. 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

low level for the benefit o? those who

the basis of preparation, earnestness, 
capacity, character, and co-operative- 
ness.
