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!

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 
with enthusiasm. 

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 
WEEK affairs. 

True the line is long and the waiting is inevitable, 
but getting acquainted with the faculty at the 
FACULTY RECEPTION will mean much to your 
college days. 

The CIRCLE DRIVE brings pleasant memories to 
hundreds of Maryville students and will continue to 
do so to you who are just now entering her halls — 
That is, as long as you remember its loveliness may 
be enjoyed only until 7:15 each evening (7:00 on 
Sunday) . 

While the sun shines now and next spring, Mary- 
ville beauties (clad in proper clothing, of course) 
head for BALDWIN BEACH, hedged in on the north 
side of Baldwin Hall. Proper clothing consists of 
raincoat, or shorts and shirt, or the equivalent, over 
your sunning outfit. 

Tuesday night is TOWN NITE, so don your 
prettiest sweater for an evening at the movie, bowling 
alley, or just a hamburger and french fries 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 
gridiron match. 

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. 
— 7 — 

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- 
ing money. 

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 
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 
keeping friends. 

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, 
then you'll 

— Monopolize the telephones, 

— Sweep dirt into the halls and leave it there, 

— Wash your clothes in the bathrooms during the 
"busy" hours, 

— 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 
week's ironing, 

— ^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 
to sleep. 

— II — 


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 — 


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.

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-

have four each month and junior and senior women 
may have an unlimited number.

exception of Easter and Baccalaureate Sundays when 
afternoon dating is also permitted.

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

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

privileges set aside for seniors, or other seniors who 
violate the provisions, to the Executive Committee of

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.

Hello Students, 

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.

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.

Hi There! 

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, 
your support. 

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 
individual responsibility.

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. 



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. 
Chairman, M.S.O.

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. 

— 58 


Hi Fellows, 

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.

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 
from Knoxville. 

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.

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.

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 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. 

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. 

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 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- 

"B. G." 

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. 

— 66 — 


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 


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.

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 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 


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 

"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 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 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 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 
French Club. 


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 problems they will meet in their chosen profes- 
sipn and to give interesting and informational pro- 
grams concerning medical topics. The general activi- 
ties of the Club include lectures by practicing phy- 
sicians and representatives of other branches of 
medicine, movies of medical nature, and tours of local 


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. 

— 71 — 


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. 


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 

— 72 — 


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

The Highland Echo is the Maryville College stu- 
dent paper which is delivered weekly. The staflF con- 
sists of members of the four classes, the Editor and 
Business Manager coming from the senior class. 
Students may try-out for the Echo by competitive 
writing. A total of twelve new freshmen arc added 
to the staff each year, and other additions are made in 
case of vacancies. The Echo keeps the students in- 
formed regarding campus activities as well as world 


The Chilhowean is the annual year-book which is 
published by the members of the junior class. It 
tells the story of the year's work in all departments 
of the College in pictures. The editor and business 
manager and their assistants put in many long hours 
in its make-up, and the results are never disappoint- 


The Alumni Magazine is published quarterly by 
the Alumni Office. News of the College and alumni 
is sent through this magazine to all the alumni. 


The M Book is published each year by the Y.W. 
C.A. and Y.M.C.A. and is the College handbook. 
Its purpose is to give each student information and 
data about the College which he might otherwise 
never receive. It is designed to be practical and 
serviceable. A copy is sent to each student and 
faculty member before the opening of the fall

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 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. 

— 76 — 


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 
other activities.
