The Staff of the 1948-1949 M Book wish you
all a happy and successful year. If this book helps
you in any way toward realizing this end, we feel
that our efforts in preparing it have been worthwhile.
Until last year the M Book was designed to
acquaint you with that part of college life not found
in the classroom. Then it was expanded so that it
is now the official College Handbook. The staff has
worked with the Student Council, the WSGA, the
MSO, and the Executive Council of the Faculty to
present to you a brief picture of life at Maryville.
We express our sincere appreciation to all who have
made this book possible, and we hope that in some
way you may find it helpful to you.
Where Cbilhowee's lofty mountains
Pierce the southern blue.
Proudly stands our Alma Mater,
Noble, grand, and true.
Orange Garnet, float forever,
Ensign of our hill!
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater,
Hail to Maryville!
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 highlands!
Loud her praises sing!

GREETINGS FROM THE
PRESIDENT OF THE COLLEGE
May I join in welcoming you to Maryville
College's 130th year. Some important events in the
history of the College are scheduled for 1948-1949.
Among them is a vigorous campaign for funds to
replace the Chapel we lost by fire in the spring of
1947. Already architects are working on sketches of
the Chapel and also of the new Fine Arts Center
for which a notable gift has been made. An en-
couraging beginning has been made on a fund for
one women's domitory and an additional science
building is in the plans.
But the first matters of interest to new students
are related to the daily program. Its schedule is well
under way. It will continue the well-tried and suc-
cessful features of others years and add a number
of new ones.
I trust you will start and finish the college year
RALPH Waldo Lloyd^
President of Maryville College
You'll never catch the spirit of Maryvillc, nor
will you feel a part of it, until you know some of
her traditions — those things that make being a student
here something sort of special — those things that will
make your love and understanding for your College
broader and deeper and your memories of your days
here more vivid and pleasant.
Of course it won't last, but the first week on the
campus you new girls will surely feel as if they've
been waiting for you to make your appearance.
Bainonian and Theta simply go all out to pledge you
to their organizations. Don't miss their RUSH

but getting acquainted with the faculty at the

BARNWARMING is the show of the fall. Its
sponsors arc the "Y" organizations and it is held in
the Big Gym every Thanksgiving night. The theme
is usually "hush-hush" as are the King and Queen,
chosen from the senior class, and attendants selected
from the other classes.
The BELL in Anderson tower will tell you when
to get up, go to classes, and go to meals. Listen
also for its clear tones heralding victory after a
The students at Maryville are proud of their
FRIENDLINESS, and you too will catch that habit
of saying "Hi" to those you meet.
A state which you want to avoid at all cost is
that of being MOONSHINED. This means that you
and the boyfriend (or girlfriend, as the case may be)
have been somewhere or have been doing something
that isn't included in the "approved list" and your
relationship to each other and to those of the op-
posite sex is temporarily aflrected. Conduct at all
times becoming a lady or a gentleman is a good in-
surance policy against this.
For three or four years we have had a REG HALL
on the campus of Maryville, and for about the same
number of years there has been the CHATTERBOX,
which took the place of the "Y" Stores of many
years ago. This year the college will offer something
new to the student body. A building, financed by
the federal government for the college, has been desig-
nated by the college as a STUDENT CENTER
which will house the REG HALL, the Y STORE
and other of the social aspects of the campus life.
The YWGA and YMCA have both contributed
toward furnishing the building and will help the
Student Council in the operating of it. This is a
great step toward a better recreation program at
Maryville. Now it's up to us to make it work.

FOUNDERS' AND HOMECOMING DAY is
marked with dignity in the morning at the service
commemorating the founding of our College, and
informality in the evening at the football field when
the Homecoming Queen is crowned and our football
team tangles with their toughest foe. The "lums"
are here in large numbers and enjoy a barbcque that
evening on the campus.
VESPERS each Sunday rounds out the week and
gives it a sense of completeness. The inspiring music
of our Vesper Choir and many outstanding speakers
are included on the Vesper program.
If you can sing at all, you'll want to add your
voice to hundreds of others in the annual presentation
of THE MESSIAH next Christmas.
Each February the college interrupts its program
for a few hours each day for a week. During this
time the emphasis of campus life is shifted from
material matters to more spiritual thoughts. It will
be to your advantage to attend the services of the
religious emphasis week known as the FEBRUARY
They push brooms, peck typewriters, carry trays,
pick up mail, and a host of other things — tljc large
group of Maryville students who take advantage of
the STUDENT-HELP PROGRAM. The work isn't
hard and it gives you that much-needed extra spend-
Those people you'll meet next April stumbling
over the campus with eyes fixed, lips mumbling, and
hands clutching notes are only the seniors in the
throes of COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATIONS.
But give them respect and reverence, for the day may
come when you too will become a senior.
The students of the college participate in two
drives each year. The FRED HOPE FUND is the
first of these and each February you arc asked to
— 8 —
contribute to this fund which is in memory of and
in tribute to one of Maryville's outstanding and be-
loved graduates. For two years the money raised in
this drive has been used to send one of our fellow
students to the foreign field.
The second of these drives is the WORLD
STUDENT SERVICE FUND. The needs of our
fellow students throughout the world for food, for
books, for medical care deserve all the attention and
aid we can give. Each spring the students are asked
to give to this worthy cause that others might
be given the opportunities which are ours.
Nothing can compare with the thrill of seeing the
sun's first rays burst over the Smokies as the Choir
sings "Alleluia, Christ Is Risen" at the SUNRISE
SERVICE in the College Woods on Easter morning.
Our natural and beautiful amphitheater in the Col-
lege Woods each MAY DAY becomes transformed
into the Royal Court of the May Queen and her
attendants. The Queen is chosen from the senior
class and her escort is the class president. Other
classes are represented by two attendants each plus
their escorts. An original pageant is presented by
the Dramatic Art Department.
For all of us, and especially the seniors, COM-
MENCEMENT time is both happy and sad — happy
because classes and exams are over and sad because
wc are saying goodbye to dear friends, many of
whom wc may not see again for years. The services,
processions, and conferring of degrees mark the end
of an important year in each of our lives, and as wc
exchange goodbyes and gaze again at the familiar
grounds, we go away feeling that it is now our
College and we have become part of its life and
personality — just as it has also become a part of ours.
— 9 —
One of the first things we learn at college is that
living with a large group of people in one building
requires far more patience, understanding, and con-
sideration than we ordinarily exercised in our homes
where there were usually only three or four of us.
The best policy you can follow is "to do unto
others ," remembering that one person's rights
arc often limited in order that the rights of a group
of persons might be respected. We are jotting down
a few suggestions that we hope will make your life
in the dormitory happier and easier, and in turn
help those with whom you will be living.
No one minds helping a friend now and then, but
nothing can be worse than a habitual borrower. Just
try wearing your roommate's freshly ironed blouse or
newest tie, and see how long your beautiful friend-
ship will last.
You may be happy living in a messy room, but
it is obnoxious to your roommate and others. Do
not wait to be asked to clean up your room.
Every night a great many people in the dormitory
want and need to do some concentrated studying.
They will appreciate your consideration in observing
their "busy signs" as well as avoiding loud talking.
door slamming, and yelling in the halls.
Almost everyone has a radio, so it won't be
necessary for you to play yours loud enough for the
people down the hall to hear.
You never know when visitors, guests, or other
outsiders may be in the halls, and it can be very
embarrassing for them to meet you improperly clad.
— 10 —
Nothing can brand you quicker than being a per-
petual **gripcr" or always making "catty" remarks
about the faculty or other students. Remember,
sincerity and cheerfulness are "musts" in making and
Your conduct in the lounges and public rooms
should be such that others will feel both free and
welcome to come in at all times.
But if you are not interested in making friends,
— Monopolize the telephones,
— Sweep dirt into the halls and leave it there,
— Wash your clothes in the bathrooms during the
— Barge into your friends* rooms during study hours
and waste their time,
— Get up earlier than most people in the morning
and make a general disturbance,
— Use the ironing boards on the ifloors to do your
— ^Never clean the tubs, basins, etc., after using,
— Forget your iron and burn the ironing board covers,
— Take supplies from the medicine chest and leave
them in your room,
— Be loud and boisterous when others arc trying
— II —
THE DINING ROOM
Meals arc served each day in the dining room
according to the following schedule:
Weekdays: 7:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 6:00 p.m.
Saturdays: 7:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m.
Sundays: 8:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m.
Your guests may eat in the dining room by ar-
ranging with the Dietitian. Meal prices are as fol-
Breakfast, 25c; Lunch 60c; Dinner, 60c
Breakfast, 25c; Lunch, 60c; Dinner, 35c
Breakfast, 25c; Lunch, 75c; Dinner, 35c
Take time to freshen up a bit before meals, es-
pecially dinner. It will do you good as well as your
Remember, girls do not wear jeans and slacks in
the dining room.
College is an ideal place to acquire a bit of
"polish," so watch your manners. After all, bad
table manners are not considered cute, and it isn't
diflFicult to say "please" and "thank you."
Loud and boisterous talk is definitely frowned
upon. Try to make the conversation table-wide so
that no one will be excluded.
Your waitress has classes and obligations too, so be
considerate and get to meals on time.
Lack of attention and reverence during the bless-
ing only reveals your background and training and
does very little for your popularity.
— 12 —
ON THE CAMPUS
Remember that while you are on the campus you
are representing Maryville to visitors and outsiders
who may be passing through, and your conduct
should always be that which would be complimentary
and honorable to the College as well as to the
rest of the student body.
True the whole world loves a lover, but indiscreet
display of affection can bring criticism to you and
your date, to say nothing of the damage to the
reputation of the College.
Girls never wear shorts on the campus except when
engaged in active sports. Jeans and slacks are
worn when the occasion calls for such dress — as hikes,
sports, stage crew, etc.
The men always wear shirts or jerseys, even when
playing tennis or swimming.
Wastebaskets are placed at strategic places on the
campus to catch your wrappers, peelings, etc.
Thoughtlessly throwing these on the campus makes
for an unkcpt appearance and mars the beauty.
Also, failure to use the walks makes ugly paths
across the grass.
IT'S THE LAW
Wc like to gripe and complain a lot about the
rules and regulations, but down underneath we all
realize that a family with nine hundred members
could hardly live together peacefully and harmonious-
ly without a few "thou shalt's" and "thou shalt
not's." So we are listing the important ones here
in order to have you properly informed. Of course,
you realize there may be others printed elsewhere
for which you will also be held responsible.
It may be necessary for you to ask for an ex-
ception of the rules sometimes. Such requests should
be made to either your Student Government OflFicers,
Head of your Dormitory, the Dean of Students,
or the Dean of Women. Remember, continually ask-
ing for special permission for trivial things may spoil
your chances of getting it when something import-
ant comes along.
1. Parlor dates may be had in the women's dormi-
tory parlors from 7:00 until 10:00 p.m. any week-
day evening by arranging with the Head of the
Dormitory. Freshmen and sophomore women may
have four each month and junior and senior women
may have an unlimited number.
2. Sunday dating is for the services only with the
exception of Easter and Baccalaureate Sundays when
afternoon dating is also permitted.
3. Calling hours for men in the women's dormi-
tories arc as follows:

Drive each evening until 7:15 (7:00 on Sunday)
and until 1:20 on Sunday afternoons.
5. Dating is allowed at announced College activi-
ties. Couples return to the women's dormitories
within fifteen minutes after the close of the activity
and men do not stay after that time. Otherwise there
is no dating on weekday evenings either during or
after library hours except that men may walk with
women directly from the Library to the women's
dormitories and leave immediately.
6. WSGA Senior Privileges were set up last year
to offer senior women certain privileges which un-
derclass women do not possess. Each senior woman
is allowed an extra town night each week under the
same rules which govern the Tuesday night pro-
posal. Senior Privileges include also Sunday after-
noon dating between 3:00 p.m. and supper on the
campus, in the residential sections of the city, and,
for groups or couples, in the college woods and
around the loop. On the second town night dating
is permitted to seniors in Knoxvillc provided they re-
port into the domitory before 8:30 p.m. Senior
women are to report underclass women for taking

action at any time against any student who does
not seem to fit into the general program and live up
to the standards and principles of the College. Please
bear in mind also that laws and penalties are not
for those students who conduct themselves in an
orderly and intelligent way and have the best in-

THE STUDENT COUNCIL
In many respects the Student Council is the most
important of all student organizations because its
membership represents the entire student body. This
year the constitution of the Student Body is undergo-
ing a complete revision. Parts of it are completed,
but since the entire revision is not yet finished, the
constitution which appears in this book is the old
constitution but includes the changes which have been
completely approved already. The membership of
the Council was determined this year by vote accord-
ing to provisions in the new constitution which were
approved prior to the spring elections.
To it any matters pertaining to student life can
be brought and discussed and from the Council di-
rected to the Faculty through the Student-Faculty
Senate. Practically all of the social program of
the campus is handled through a joint faculty and
Council-appointed student committee; the recreation
center and town night arc a couple of the many
things which the Council has brought to the students
in past years.
In addition the Student Council conducts all
campus elections, and the revised cut system, now in
use, is almost identical with the plan recommended by
the Council two years ago. Your Student Council
is always at work in behalf of the student body,
trying to provide a better social program on the
campus and serving as a representative organization
for every student.
To all new students the Student Council extends
a very warm welcome. Soon you will have a
chance to elect your own representatives, so start
early to think of those whom you believe will well
represent you. And remember, the Council is your
organization. Your suggestions and full cooperation
will help toward making it a better organization and
in turn campus life better.
— 32 —
GREETINGS FROM THE
STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT
Your Student Council will begin work this year
under a newly revised constitution. We all welcome
the changes that have been enacted and feel that they
will give fairer representation to the various student
organizations. This new constitution represents ade-
quately all phases of campus life; the living, the
academic, the spiritual, and the social. Our aim
for this coming year is to unify all of the campus
On paper our constitution looks good, but in order
for our council to become effective and to function
properly, the cooperation and good will of each stu-
dent and organization must be enlisted. To do this
we are asking everyone to read both the old and new
Student Council Constitution and to try to catch some
of the spirit with which the necessary changes were
made. These revisions will become improvements
only when the students make them such.
We earnestly hope that the newly elected repre-
sentatives will attend the council meetings with their
organizations' functions and purposes fully in mind.
Thus with such information at our fingertips we
shall be able to operate effectively and efficiently.
Remember, too, that the representatives must have the
confidence and the support of those whom he is rep-
resenting before any success can be realized.
Speaking of success, we wish the best for all of you
who are to be with us at Maryvillc this coming year.
And don't forget your Student Council represents
you, so give it all your support.
Jim Black, President

THE WOMEN'S STUDENT GOVERNMENT
Student Government in the women's dormitories
first came into being at the beginning of the second
semester in 1946. When it was first designed, a
group of intelligent and practical-minded students sat
down with the idea of figuring out the most logical
and reasonable plan for a hundred or more girls to
live in one building congenially. They concluded that
a plan based on thoughtfulness and consideration on
the part of each girl for the other person would be
necessary. It was with this idea in mind that the
constitution and by-laws were drawn up.
Student Government does not mean no govern-
ment at all. It simply means that the governmenv
has been placed in the hands of the students and it
is their responsibility, working with the Head of
the dormitory, to handle the affairs and problems
of the dormitories and their occupants. It has been
responsible for a number of reforms — revisions, re-
laxations, or strengthening of former procedures when
it has seemed advisable. The use of lights until
11:00 p. m. and after, ironing boards on each
floor, emergency drills, and orderly study hours are
all due to the efforts of the Student Government
organization. The latest thing for which Student
Government is responsible is the WSGA Senior
Your Women's Student Government officers are
constantly at work in your behalf. They need your
suggestions and ideas — but most of all they need
your all-out cooperation to make Student Govern-
ment an effective and beneficial program to the
women students and to the College.
GREETINGS FROM W.S.G.A. CHAIRMAN
Here's a warm, sincere welcome to all you new
girls as you begin to find your place in our friendly
Maryville family and a big Hello .... isn't it
grand to be back again .... to the old timers.
We have an important year ahead of us in our
Women's Student Government Association. Although
student government is still rather young in semesters,
it is already proving itself to be a vital, outreaching
organization on campus. Let's make it even stronger
this year. In accepting the attendant responsibilities
of our many new privileges, we will be challenged
often by problems that will call for our collective ef-
forts in working out the most effective solutions.
Then, too, as we seek to enlarge our program we will
need your ideas, your suggestions, and most of all,
As wc all work together during the year to make
our residence halls pleasant, happy places in which to
live, I am sure that I can count on each one of you
for co-operation, understanding and a strong sense of
Chairman. W. S. G. A.

THE MEN'S STUDENT ORGANIZATION
The Men's Student Organization is the newest unit
to be formed in Maryville's student body organiza-
tion. Its purpose is to represent the points of view
and the interests of all the men of Maryville Col-
lege — on and off campus, and local.
Since this organization was formed late in the last
school year there has as yet been little chance for the
wheels to get rolling, but it should be ready to take
its place in life at Maryville in the year ahead.
All men are members of the MSO, and its ability
to function depends upon the men. The organization
will represent the men in the Student Council and on
the Student-Faculty Senate. The cooperation of you
men will determine the value of the MSO.
GREETINGS FROM THE M.S.O.
Welcome, Men :
In our efforts to have every student adequately
represented in the student government, we discovered
that there was no organization to represent all men
of the College. To remedy this condition, the men
organized themselves into the "Men's Student Organi-
zation of Maryville."
The purpose of the organization, as stated in the
constitution, is to "fairly and adequately represent
the points of view and interests, and execute the will
of the majority", in accordance with the provisions
of the constitution.
It is a new organization designed for you; so,
if there is any possible way that it may serve you,
please don't hesitate to let your representative know.
Wishing you the best of luck in the coming year.
Henry Callaway Jr.

THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN
Some people believe the Young Men's Christian
Association to be a chain of economical hotels. Others
know it as a place where underprivileged children
can go for a swim, and still others think of it in
terms of religion, bulging muscles, and night schools.
To millions of fighting men and prisoners of war,
the **Y" meant something to do during idle hours.
Perhaps this is right and as it should be. When
an organization grows for a century and spreads to
the distant corners of the earth, it comes to mean
different things to many people. In this profusion
of understanding may lie its strength. We at Mary-
ville believe "Y" to be a means of drawing the fel-
lows into a real Christian fellowship. Our emphasis
is placed on the latter part of our initialed title —
*Y" is directed by a cabinet and four officers.
These men are vitally interested in making 'Y" reach
the greatest number of men with the most effective-
ness. Perhaps the most regular activity is the weekly
worship service each Sunday afternoon.
**Y" touches every phase of college life and so
its strength is an important factor in the whole
campus program. This strength depends upon the
officers and cabinet, but even more does it depend
upon the cooperation of the members. It has a place
and demand for every talent — including yours. It
needs these talents in order to grow. Rate the
YMCA high on your list of extra-curricular activities.
GREETINGS FROM Y.M.C.A. PRESIDENT
Here we go again into a year of work and fun at
Maryville College. For some of you, it is the first
year. To you, the officers and cabinet of Y offer
a special welcome. We hope that our efforts in your
behalf will prove useful.
Your campus Y.M.C.A. has given much thought to
how it can best serve the student body. A glance at
the committees of the cabinet will give you some idea
of the services of Y to the campus and to the com-
munity. Your participation in any of Y's varied
activities is welcomed and encouraged.
Please remember that you men are the sole purpose
for the functioning of the Y.M.C.A. We want to
include in our program those things which will ben-
efit you most. Therefore your suggestions and help
will always be gratefully received. We sincerely hope
that you will give us the chance to include you as
an active member of M.C.'s Y.M.C.A.

THE YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN
Y.W.C.A. at Maryville College is perhaps one of
the most valuable organizations on the campus. It
includes all of the women of the College. While you
become a member when you enroll, there is an
Active Membership for those who are especially in-
terested in having "Y" serve them and in serving
through ''Y". It is an opportunity for Christ-
centered fellowship and service.
The YWCA plays a major part on the campus.
Each Sunday afternoon an inspiring and helpful
worship service is planned by the program committee
of the cabinet. YW sponsors such groups as Nu
Gamma Sigma, for the benefit of the new girls; Pi
Gamma Pigma, for the town girls; and the Big-
Little Sister program. Several representatives of YW
go to mission chapels nearby and to the orphanage to
lend a spark of social service and give short worship
services one day during the week. During the
semester we have interracial meetings with groups
One of the big events which '*Y" undertakes and
sponsors is the May Day Festival. Other social
activities arc planned by the group, including a hike
in the mountains every fall. The *'Y" kitchen is
a special place for fun and food and is especially
equipped for such enjoyment. Other activities such
as Artist's Series, Barnwarming, Devotional meet-
ings in the dormitories, M-Book, and the Chatter-
box are sponsored jointly by YW and YM.
So you sec, YW is no small part of Maryville
College. We hope that all of you will find your
places in "Y" this next year.

GREETINGS FROM Y.W.C.A. PRESIDENT
Hello, Girls I
Welcome to Maryville! We're glad to have you
with us to share in our many activities here on the
"hill". This year YW promises to offer a great deal
of fun, fellowship, and inspiration. Don't miss it.
The program of YW is so varied and extensive that
there is a place for every girl. Barnwarming, mission
work, hikes, parties, weekly programs — all these pro-
vide splendid opportunities for you to help us be-
come "Builders with God".
It's a wonderful opportunity that we have to work
and worship together. Let's make it a big year for
YW and for Maryville.
We'll be looking for you.

ORGANIZATIONS AND CLUBS
Of course, you came to college primarily for
scholastic training, but you'll miss a lot if you don't
add a few extra-curricular activities to your program.
However, you don't want to be the other extreme and
join every club on the Hill just because you can.
You'll soon find yourself all burdened down, and
your enthusiasm will begin to lag in the social
activities as well as the lessons. So pick out one or
two in which you are really interested and put your
efforts there. The organizations and clubs at Mary-
villc arc varied and should include the interests of
every student. Any new organizations must be ap-
proved by the Faculty.
PI KAPPA DELTA
Pi Kappa Delta is the Tennessee Alpha Chapter
of the National Honorary Forensic Fraternity. The
purpose of this organization is to stimulate progress
in, and to promote the interest of intercollegiate
oratory, debate, and public speaking by encouraging
a spirit of intercollegiate fellowship, brotherly co-
operation, and interest; and by conferring upon de-
serving candidates a badge of distinction, proficiency,
and honor, varied and graduated according to merit
and achievement. Maryvillc is honored to have this
organization, and its members here have consistent-
ly ranked high in national and local tournaments.
Both debate squads — varsity and freshmen — meet as
classes and are given college credit for their work.
THETA ALPHA PHI
Talented dramatic students may, upon meeting cer-
tain requirements for membership, be initiated into
the Tennessee Delta Chapter of the national honorary
dramatic fraternity, Theta Alpha Phi. All students
have opportunity to try out for the plays given
by various organizations each year.
— 64 —
The High Society is one of the newest clubs on the
campus. The requirements for membership are that
one be female and five feet seven inches or taller.
The club spends its time learning ballet, pantomine,
and choreography. The club performed at two of the
outstanding events — Barnwarming and May Day.
SIGMA DELTA PSI
Membership in Sigma Delta Psi is earned by
meeting the requirements of the various athletic tests
in the presence of a responsible committee.
ALPHA GAMMA SIGMA
Alpha Gamma Sigma was organized for the pur-
pose of motivating high scholarship among students.
Its requirements are equal to those of Phi Beta Kappa.
Ten percent of the graduating class may be admitted
provided the members have a grade point ratio of 6.5
or somewhat more than a B average.
Bianonian offers to her members an opportunity
to work and play together in her activities through-
out the year. One of the four social societies on the
Hill» her main purpose is to promote a wholesome
social program and to maintain the "Maryville Spirit**
in all the campus activities. There arc planned meet-
ings each week, and she joins with Athenian in pro-
ducing one of the major College plays each year.
Last year the Bainonian group won the cup for
presenting the best skit in the Annual Skit Contest.
One of the four social societies of Maryville Col-
lege organized in 1894 is Theta Epsilon, representa-
tive of the campus women and is a sister society to
— 65 —
the men's organization, Alpha Sigma. It is com-
posed of active, associate, and honorary members.
Any woman student of the college is eligible to be-
come an active member. It is the purpose of the
society to strengthen the bond of goodwill and
friendship among its own members, and the members
of other societies on the hill. All who have mem-
bership may well feel they have an active part in
the activities of the college.
Athenian is organized for the purpose of bringing
to the men of the College a varied and interesting
social program. Entertainment and fun highlight
the regular meetings of the society. The play, pro-
duced jointly with Bainonian each year, and Athen-
ian's contribution to the Annual Skit Contest are
the two outstanding efforts undertaken by the whole
society. A place on the active roll is open to any
man on the campus. It's a place where lasting
friendships are made.
Alpha Sigma offers the men of Maryville College
a program of fun and fellowship in which all may
participate. During the College year all those in-
terested in dramatics may take part in a play which
is given in conjunction with Alpha Sigma's sister
society, Theta Epsilon. For those who prefer athletics,
the society takes part in the College intramaural pro-
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 GAMMA SIGMA
This organization is sponsored by the Y.W.C.A.
to promote fellowship between the town girls at-
tending college and the dormitory girls. A luncheon
is held every two weeks and an interesting program
THE MINISTERIAL ASSOCIATION
Organized in 1900, the Ministerial Association
plays an important part in the life of the College.
Having as its motto the words of Jesus. "Not to be
ministered unto, but to minister," it is composed of
students who are candidates for or are vitally in-
terested in some form of the Christian ministry. In
addition to its regular meetings twice each month, the
Association shares in planning the program of the
campus prayer meeting committee, and its members
conduct mid-day devotional services during Holy
Week, do preaching and pastoral work in the county
jail, visit the patients in the College Hospital, and
are encouraged to engage in some form of service in
local missions and rural churches in the vicinity of
Since 1894 the students have maintained a Stu-
dent Volunteer organization which is one of the
strongest religious influences in the College. It is
composed not only of those who have pledged them-
selves to the foreign field, but of those who are in-
terested 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 firsthand material.
— 67 —
The Parish Project is a program of Christian
service to communities in the vicinity of Maryville.
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 weekday Bible classes in a
selected group of public schools, supervising young
people's societies, and the leadership of character-
building activity groups for boys and girls. The pro-
ject is jointly sponsored and supported by the Board
of National Missions, the Board of Christian Educa-
tion, Maryville College, and the New Providence Pres-
byterian Church of Maryville. All who serve in
the project are enrolled in a class and recicve academic
credit for satisfactory completion of the work each
The Writers* Workshop is made up of students
and faculty members who show interest and ability in
literary work. Each member writes and reads aloud
for criticism one paper each semester, and oppor-
tunities for practice in literary criticism are pro-
vided. The selections considered most outstanding
arc printed in an annual publication called Chips from
the Writers' Workshop. Members are elected from
the Junior and Senior classes and faculty. Eligible
persons are urged to make their interest known to
any English instructor.
The Art Club is a small but active group of peo-
ple interested in Art. The purpose of the Club is to
sponsor various Art Exhibits coming to the College,
to sponsor lectures by people qualified in the Art
field, and to further the interests of students in this
general field. The Art Club has several purely social
activities during the year such as moon-light hikes
— 68 —
and sketching parties. The membership is not re-
stricted to people in the art classes, but open to any-
one interested in the subject. Last year was the
first year since the war that the club has been active,
and next year a full program is planned.
THE CAMERA CLUB
The Camera Club was formed during the fall
semester of 1946 and designed to serve the interests of
the members. Since the group is still a small one,
it assures each member a larger freedom when using
the equipment. The Club helps the photographic
enthusiast pursue his objective in company, learn from
the experiences of others, and improve his own abili-
ties by helping in the development of the talents of
his fellowmembers. Meetings are held twice each
THE DISC CLUB
This club was organized in 1936 by students for
the benefit of lovers of good music and to en-
courage the appreciation of good music among all
students. Accordingly, its organization is very in-
formal, and all students are automatically considered
to be members. A program committee of six stu-
dents and a member of the Music Department faculty
arrange for the presentation of good recorded music
twice a month for a half hour following the evening
meal. An interested student or faculty member in-
troduces each program with brief comments regard-
ing the composition to be heard and its composer.
"M" Club is the girl's athletic club of Maryville
College. Membership is attained by making a total of
400 or more points through participation in the
girls' athletic program generally known as Point
System. The purpose of the Club is to keep up the
— 69 —
Interest in girls athletics and to further good sports-
manship in Maryville College. A special project is
conducted each year. Besides taking part in the
Point System two hours a week the members meet
monthly for business discussions and enjoy an athletic
activity together. One of the high spots in the club's
activities is the week-end hike in the Smoky Moun-
tains once each semester.
THE GERMAN CLUB
The German Club has as its purpose that of
stimulating interest and furthering knowledge of
German culture. Membership is open to anyone in-
terested in German culture, regardless of whether or
not he is a student of German. It is the aim of
the Club to have all members participate in the pro-
gram and activities of the Club. Meetings are held
twice a month, according to a regular schedule.
THE SPANISH CLUB
The purpose of the Spanish Club is to stimulate
interest in Spanish speaking countries, their culture,
and their customs as well as their language. Students
also have an opportunity to practice speaking Spanish
outside the classroom. Since there is a limited mem-
bership, students taking Spanish in their college course
are given preference over those who are merely in-
terested in Spanish. The programs are both cultural
and entertaining, following a Spanish theme. The
students themselves prepare and give these programs
on meeting nights. Freshmen students are invited to
visit the Spanish Club when they arrive on the campus.
THE FRENCH CLUB
The French Club is composed of thirty members
selected because of their scholarship and interest in
French. No student is eligible for membership dur-
ing his freshman year nor while he is taking first
— 70 —
year French. The programs consist of plays, songs,
games, moving pictures, and the like. Each year a
formal banquet is held. Both educational and recrea-
tional opportunities feature in the activities of the
The Prc-Med Club is an organization composed of
men and women of the College who are taking the
pre-medical course in preparation for a career in
medicine (including nursing and medical technology) .
Its purpose is to introduce its members to some of

THE INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB
This Club, although autonomous in its organiza-
tion, is affiliated in purpose and program with
hundreds of other such clubs on college campuses
throughout the world by its relation to the Carnegie
Endowment for International Peace. Its stated pur-
pose is ". . . . the formation of a nucleus of students
interested in international affairs with the object of
spreading interest and information on related topics
. . . .and of fixing attention on the principles of in-
ternational conduct and agreement which must be put
into efi^ect to secure the existence of peaceful civiliza-
tion." It seeks to accomplish this purpose through
forums, discussion groups, and informed speakers at
its semi-monthly meetings. While the transaction of
the business of the Club is limited to students joining
at the beginning of each semester, all students are en-
couraged to attend and to participate in the discussions
and talks concerning international affairs.

TAU KAPPA CHI
Tau Kappa Chi is a musical organization for the
women of the College who are either music majors
or are interested applied music students. Its pur-
pose is to form an organized group of persons who
wish to promote student and community interest in
music. The aims are to raise the general academic
standard of the music department; to provide a goal
for all students interested in music; and to promote
thoroughly trained musicianship and further the un-
derstanding of all types of music. The qualifications
for membership includes having both a B average
for two semesters and a recommendation from their
music instructors; having a high moral character, and
showing outstanding ability in public performance.
The College Choir provides good training and
sheer joy for those who are interested in singing. It
is composed of approximately sixty 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, in Maryville,
and adjoining cities. Its program also includes a con-
cert tour through parts of Tennessee and Alabama.
ALL GIRLS CHOIR
The All Girls Choir is composed of approximately
fifty-six girls who are admitted through try-outs at
the beginning of each semester. The Choir sings at
Vespers, special programs, in Maryville and adjoining

MEN'S GLEE CLUB
After a period of inactivity, the Men's Glee Club
has been reorganized with forty members. Additional
members may be admitted through try-outs at the
beginning of each semester. They sing at diflPerent
meetings and special programs, and join with the All
Girls Choir to give an oratorio each year.
Students who have training to play a musical
instrument are invited to try out for the college band
which is approximately fifty pieces. For Sophomores
the marching practices may be substituted for the
intramural requirement. For members who serve
faithfully throughout a year letters are awarded at the
end of the band season.
Despite the chapel fire two years ago the orchestra
had one of its most successful seasons last year. Dur-
ing the year ahead this organization should be able
to grow even more. Each year the orchestra ac-
companies the Messiah and the piano concerto besides
giving two or three concerts annually. Last year its
final concert included the world premiere of an
operetta composed and conducted by one of the music
majors of the college with libretto by another music

MARYVILLE'S ATHLETIC POLICY
Maryvillc stands for the well-rounded, well-de-
veloped 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 Maryvillc College has placed an emphasis
on athletics of all kinds. Besides having inter-col-
legiate athletics, there is also conducted a well-developed
and highly organized system of intramural athletics
for men and women.
Maryville does not buy her athletes. Those who
come to Maryville come with the understanding that
places on her athletic teams are open to physical fit-
ness and average scholastic ability; nothing else. In
addition it is true that athletic ability alone does not
"make" a student at Maryville. Well-rounded eflPort
in other extra-curricular activity and in the classroom
is just as important.
THE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
The Athletic Association is composed of the entire
student body and faculty of Maryville College. Its
purpose is to work in cooperation with the Depart-
ment of Athletics of the College for the futherance of
desirable conditions in that field. Each spring an
Executive Board of Control (commonly known as the
Athletic Board of Control) is elected to act for the
Association. This Board is composed of a president,
vice president, secretary, and three boys, two girls, and
two faculty members as representatives. The Director
of Athletics is an ex-officio member of the Board.
The Board performs such functions as electing man-
agers for athletic teams, and making awards to mem-
bers and managers cf these teams as well as to cheer-
leaders and "point-system" girls. The Association
has no power in financial matters connected with
— 75 —
athletics and it is thus not certain that a person will
receive an award unless the faculty feels that the Col-
lege is financially able and willing.
You are urged to take part in the activities of the
Athletic Association whether or not your interests
are in that direction.
Athletics at Maryville have been developing since
the end of the war. For two seasons the various
teams have had better than average success on the
battlefields of sports. Before the war interrupted life
at Maryville, the college was well known throughout
the South for its strong teams in the minor sports.
Since the resumption of intercollegiate athletics we
have enjoyed a little more prestige in the realm of
the major sports than was before accorded the college.
As athletics begin in the year ahead, it is our hope
that Maryville will hold tightly to the laurels gained
in the major sports and will redevelop strength in
the field of minor sports. Let's get behind our teams
and support them, win or lose, because school spirit
is part of Maryville's athletic program, too.
The intramural program provides Maryville men
and women with a chance to participate in various
non-varsity sports for good fellowship, vigorous com-
petition, and physical fitness. The men and women
have a similar system and organization, each with a
Director who will give full instructions regarding
each program. The men participate in soccer,
football, basketball, swimming, track, and softball.
The girls play soccer, volleyball, basketball, swimming,
tennis, and softball. The intramural program in-
cludes the regular physical education classes for Soph-
omores, two hours each week of participation being
the required amount. Although not required of
Juniors and Seniors, many of the upperclassmen
actively participate in the fun and recreation which
these sports provide.

As at most colleges, there are no longer inter-
collegiate contests for women at Maryville. For them
has been substituted the Point System. Par-
ticipation in the diflFerent 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 exer-
cise daily. Those who play basketball, soccer, soft-
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, managing a team, and per-
fect attendance. The observance of health rules gives
a maximum of 25 points a semester. High scholar-
ship 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
