President of Maryville College
FROM YOUR PRESIDENT
As President of the College it is my privilege
to represent the Faculty and Staff and the
Directors in extending a cordial welcome to old
and new students as they enter upon the college
year. Our prayer is that each may be given
health and good opportunity.
There are approximately one hundred persons
on the faculty and the administrative and main-
tenance staff and thirty-six members of the
Beard of Directors. All are sincerely interested
in every Maryville College student and in making
the institution the most effective possible.
These lines help introduce a booklet which
contains a great deal of valuable information
which I commend to you for reading now and
reference throughout the year. May it be a
—RALPH WALDO LLOYD,
President of Maryville College
T IS FOR TRADITION
Talk about Traditions — Maryville's got 'em!
Old ones, new ones — and you'll never feel your-
self a part of the Hill till you know most of them.
We think our traditions are sort of special,
something you'll remember particularly nostal-
gically when you're old and grey graduates.
You'll always remem.ber your first days at
Maryville as days of lines — lines at the Personnel
Office, lines at the Treasurer's Office, lines at
the Bookstore. Then that longest and long-
remembered line of hand-shakers at the FACUL-
TY RECEPTION. You'll want to dress formally
as you can to meet and get acquainted with the
MC faculty members. There'll be new faces and
names which will grow to mean a lot to you
during your college stay.
Since membership in the girls' societies —
Bainonian and Theta Epsilon — and the men's
societies — Alpha Sigma and Athenian — is open
to all members of the student body, respectively,
cf course, the four societies go all out during
RUSH WEEK to line up all new students as pros-
pective members. In consecutive weeks the two
brother-and-sister societies conduct intensive
membership drives culminating in the Saturday
night formal program. Last year Bainonian and
Athenian presented a South of the Border musical
program, while Theta and Alpha Sig entertained
with a World Cruise musical revue.
When you hear Tuesday night called TOWN
NIGHT, you'll know it's The Night of the week
when you and your date can enjoy a movie,
bowling, skating or just a hamburger and french
fries downtown till ten o'clock. Mark our words
— the bright lights of Broadway (Maryville's
main street, of course) will lure you on Town
other week-day nights you'll want to have a
coke and a sandwich or a malted milk at the
STUDENT CENTER. Besides being open for all
students during the day as a lounge and recrea-
tion center, the attractive white building con-
tains the Y-STORE which is open at various
daytimie hours and from 9:30 till 10:15 at night.
After big doings, like ball games or the various
Saturday night happenings, the Y-Store opens
long enough for refreshments, too.
SUNDAY VESPERS feature guest speakers and
the music of the College's outstanding A Capella
Choir. Held in Lamar Library since the Chapel
fire, Vespers closes the Sunday program with a
tone of quiet dignity and worship.
You'll envy the lovely senior girl elected to
reign as Queen on FOUNDERS' AND HOME-
COMING DAY. Dorms are colorfully decorated
to receive the alumni who arrive in great num.-
bers for their outdoor barbeque. The morning is
marked by a dignified chapel service commemo-
rating the College's founding, and the evening is
highlighted by your best yells from the football
field as the Highlanders meet their toughest foes
on our home gridiron.
Your guess is as good as ours as to what will
be the theme of this year's BARNWARMING.
This, THE big show of the fall, is held every
Thanksgiving eve in Alumni Gym, its program
planned by the campus Y's. Following a period
during which you can visit the various little
"shops" set up around the gym fringes, you'll see
a gala extravaganza featuring the best talent the
campus can produce. Oh yes — reigning mon-
archs are the King and Queen, chosen from the
senior class, and their attendants who, while
elected by the student body some weeks before,
remain Maryville's top secret till Barnwarming
night. In past years the gym has become the
lost continent of Atlantis, a gypsy forest, and
New Orleans at Mardi Gras time for Barnwarm-
ing; wonder what the '49 show will be?
And then Christmas comes around, bringing
not only a short vacation preceded by final
exams, but also the annual presentation of
Handel's MESSIAH. Yours can be one of the
hundreds of voices which, accompanied by the
College orchestra and Miss Davies at the organ,
presents this enthralling oratorio.
You'll enjoy those Christmas holidays well
enough, but we'll bank on your eagerness to get
back on campus quickly enough when they're
over! That's in January; in February comes the
week when emphasis is shifted more to spiritual
thoughts during FEBRUARY MEETINGS. Mid-
morning chapel services, a bit longer than usual,
give you time to appreciate the messages of the
year's speaker and the well-known hymns we
February also marks the College's drive for its
FRED HOPE FUND. Established in memory and
tribute of one of Maryville's outstanding gradu-
ates, this fund enables one of our fellow students
to work in the foreign mission field. You'll want
to contribute to this worthwhile drive.
It's worth getting up early and traipsing out
to the College amphitheatre to see the sun
rise as the choir sings "Alleluia" in the annual
EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE.
Once each year the dorms hold OPEN HOUSE
when the fellows and girls display their rooms to
each other and the general public. This occasion
is immediately preceded by some exhaustive
house cleaning and is generally followed by loud
sighs of relief. Both fellows and girls are inter-
ested in seeing just How the Other Half Lives,
and moms and dads drop around to see how jr.
and sis are taking care of their rooms.
Big musical program of the spring is SPRING-
TIME SENERADE, inaugurated two years ago
by the Men's Glee Club and the All-Girl Choir.
Framed in a lovely stage setting, these groups
present a fascinating program of musical numbers
from popular operettas, accompanied by twin
pianos and Mr. Hughes at the electric organ
Our lovely amphitheatre in the College Woods
becomes such varied scenes as the Emerald City
of Oz cr a Southern plantation for the annual
MAY DAY PAGEANT. Some lovely senior girl
and her attendants reign over the festivities,
which feature music, dancing, and acting com-
bined in an attractive pageant. Previous pag-
eants have been Robin Hood, the Wizard of Oz,
and Plantation Story, dramatized from the Uncle
When COMMENCEMENT comes it marks not
only the beginning of a new life for the depart-
ing seniors but the end of another experience-
packed College year. The dignified services are
climaxed by the Commencement exercises w^th
the processional of the Daisy Chain, the faculty,
and the graduating class. The Daisy Chain, com-
posed of 14 girls of the junior class, make the
long daisy chains between which the graduating
seriors march down the aisle toward diplomas
and freedom. We feel sure the departing seniors
have more than the little initials after their
names to remember, though.
But it's "See you next fall!" for the rest of us
—and toward the end of that LONG SUMMER
VACATION we find ourselves anxious to get
back to the College which has become so much a
part of our lives and personalities.
D IS FOR DATING
You'll probably meet a "he" or a "she" you
want to date very soon (after you start your
college career, if you're a freshman), so here
are a few thing's you'll have to remember.
Parlor dates may be had in the women's dormi-
tory parlors from 7:15 until 10 any weekday
evening by arranging with the Dormitory Head.
Junior and senior women may have an unlimited
number, while freshmen and sophomores are
limited to four each month. Sunday dating is
for services only, except Easter and Baccalaur-
eate Sundaj^s, when afternoon dating is also
Calling hours for men in women's dormitories
are on weekdays from 1:00 to 1:20 p. m., 3:30 to
5:30 p. m., and 6:30 to 7:15 p. m.; Town Night
from 6:30 to 7:15 p. m., and 9:30 to 10 p. m.;
Sunday afternoon from 1:00 to 1:20 p. m.;
Saturday afternoon from 1:00 to 5:30 p. m. Men
may stay in the dorms after Vespers on Sunday
until 8:15 and after Student Vols until 9:15.
Couples may be together within Circle Drive
each weekday evening until 7:15; on Sunday,
Circle Drive time limit is 7:00, and couples may
be together after lunch until 1:20 p. m.
Dating is allowed at announced college activi-
ties. Couples must return to the women's dormi-
tories within fifteen minutes after the close of
the activity or immediately after leaving the
Student Center, and men do not stay after that
time. Otherwise there is no dating on weekday
evenings, except that men may walk back with
women directly from the library or Student Cen-
ter to the women's dormitories and leave im-
When you're a senior, you'll have additional
privileges technically called WSGA Senior Priv-
ileges. Each senior woman is allowed an extra
Town Night gov-
erned by regular
rules. On this night
(other than Tuesday
night) dating is per-
mitted to seniors in
' ^ ^ •.\ fi^t^cNHD-, they are in the
(c(l(Sl* /^)'\^TO^ dormitory by 8:30
cH^'^V \ '' \\W^r^ p.m. Sunday after-
noon dating is also
/>f<^^ "A O V ^t-U l^hK allowed for seniors
Sy'^^C^ ^_ iJ^H^ between 3 and 5:30
p. m. on the campus,
in residential areas
of the city, and for groups of couples in the
College Woods and around the loop. Seniors
must report ail underclass women who take
advantage of senior privileges as well as violating
seniors to the Executive Committee of WSGA.
Before entertaining an overnight guest, be sure
to make necessary arrangements with the Dieti-
cian and Head of the dormitory; also, please have
your guests register in the guest book.
In planning parties, picnics, and other social
activities, you must secure approval from the
Dean of Women at least five days in advance.
Dates for all-campus activities of large groups
must be scheduled by the Dean of Curriculum.
All social activities must be properly chaperoned
and must be held on campus or at some approved
place. The Y rooms are available for parties
and such if arrangements are made in advance
through the YWCA House Committee and the
plans approved by the Dean of Women.
Official Town Night is Tuesday night when
students may go to town. Girls must be in groups
— 11 —
of three or with a date and must sign out and
in on the sign-out sheet between 5 and 10:15
p. m. When special permission is granted, girls
must notify either the president or the secretary
of the Student Council. Students must take a
direct route to town and stay within specified
boundaries. There shall be no loitering on
campus, on the way to and from town, or in
front of the women's dormitories. Upon re-
turning, couples may go directly to the Student
Center by signing out previously on the sign-out
sheet. Couples may also come into the women's
dormitory parlors between 9:30 and 10 p. m.
You'll want to avoid breaking these rules,
which lead to suspension of Town Night privil-
eges, as levied by the Student Council: for loiter-
ing — two months; being out of bounds — four
months; failing to sign in or out — three weeks;
failure of girls to be in groups of three or with
date — four months; and overstaying time limit —
two months. Two demerits may be given for in-
fringing on Town Night suspension.
Social dancing was last year's big step in MC
social life. Dancing each vx^eekday (except Sat-
urday) evening following supper till 7:15 is in-
formal, held in Intramural Gymnasium.
The Fall Dance, scheduled for some date in
the middle of the first semester, has rules that
say "No" to: corsages, tuxes, admission charge,
and program dances. Music is recorded, and tlie
informal note is set.
For the Big Formal, or Spring Dance, different
rules apply. Admission tickets are one dollar
per couple, and, since this is a "program dance,"
only couples are admitted. Gals dress formal,
fellovv^s may look just as nice in trim business
suits as in tuxedos, which are helpful but not
necessary. Corsages are in style. Your request
for a non-student guest must be handled through
the office of the Dean of Women.
D IS FOR DORMITORY
One of the biggest adjustments you'll have to
make is that of living with not only one room-
mate but also a v/hole dormful of people! If
you're lucky you'll manage the jump with grace;
if you're not you'll v/ant to read more carefully
than ever these suggestions for happy dormitory
To begin with, a dormitory full of varied per-
sonalities requires you to use far more patience,
consideration, and understanding than you might
think you possess. The best rule to follov/ is the
oft-quoted Golden one, which m.eans a lot when
it comes to happy dorm living. Respect what
little privacy there may be, and let your conduct
always be what you'd appreciate from others.
Whether your studying is well-balanced (as it
should be) or heavily concentrated during cer-
tain cramming periods (as it won't be if you
budget your time properly) you'll appreciate your
neighbor's being considerate about loud radios,
talking, hall yelling, and door slamming. Not to
mention spending their time in your room. Natur-
ally enough, your neighbors will appreciate these
little courtesies on your part, too.
Don't wait till time for the yearly Open
House to do the hurried housecleaning that will
deceive your mother as to the habitual condition
of 3^our room. A little regular cleaning will do
wonders for your room's appearance and your
roommate's good humor. Your floor janitor will
also stay in a good humor if you don't sweep
the dirt into the hall he or she has to clean.
It's a fact that Cleanliness is next to Impossible
when the bathroom is filled with drying clothes
and the tubs and basins reflect a critical lack of
thought on the part of the person immediately
preceding you. Everyone appreciates considera-
tion in the form of clean bathroom facilities.
Also, you never know whom you're going to
meet in the hall, so if you must meander, mean-
der properly clad to avoid possible mutual em-
Little things like borrowing extensively from
your roommate — not only money, but also ties
and blouses, playing your radio both loud and
late, catty discussions of your friends and others,
monopolizing the telephone, and extensive visit-
ing during quiet hours may seem trifles to you,
but your dormitory reputation hangs on such
slender threads as those.
FOR YOUR ROOM
Chief on the list of Requireds is that mattress
pad you'll have to have for your bed, but your
room will look all the better for any amount of
"prettying-up" you care to do. Extensive alter-
ations and improvements need the OK of the
Head of the Dormitory and the Director of Main-
tenance, but they're very cooperative about your
fixing your room. Remember, you're the one
responsible for the condition of your room and
Owing to the always-present fire hazard in the
dormitories, overloading of the electric circuits
is discouraged by limiting the use of equipment.
If you need more light than you can squeeze out
of the 150 watts the College allows each room
in the form of one overhead drop cord (and one
wall plug in the men's dorm), you may have 50
additional watts for $2.50. Ask your dormi-
tory head to make out an extra-current card and
pay for it at the Treasurer's Office during regis-
tration. If you want to bring your radio, be pre-
pared to pay the $2.50 fee for it, too. And pay
the fees promptly, because they are upped to
$3.50 if late. But if you're a good figurer of
wattage you can bring things like clocks, lamps
(preferably the fluorescent kind which take
fewer watts), radios and razors. No hotplates,
irons or electric hair driers may be used in the
rooms; ironing can be done on the ironing boards
in each laundry.
Extension cords looped around on the floor
or hanging from bare nails are forbidden not
only by the College but also by state fire inspect-
ors. You'll be expected to comply with the
"lights out" and "light cut" regulations that apply
to your dorm, as well as the regulation against
playing your radio between 11 at night and 6
in the morning.
Regulations require penalties, but the latter
won't apply to you if you follow the former.
Electrical equipment used contrary to dorm reg-
ulations is liable to confiscation for the rest of
the sem^ester. Your radio particularly, if played
after 11 p. m., will find itself in the office for
one month. Of course smoking is forbidden any-
where on campus, but it would be doubly dan-
gerous to do so in your room; you'll be subject
to College discipline if you're found smoking in
your room. Possessing liquor bottles, road signs,
someone else's key or pass key, or firearms is
considered, obviously, a disciplinable offense.
If you're going to live in the dormitory, or
are an out-of-town student rooming off campus,
don't plan to bring a car for use at College. If
you think yours may be an unusual case entitling
you to special permission, make a written re-
quest through the Personnel Office. Local Mary-
ville students who regularly use cars at the Col-
lege and faculty members who drive to and from
and park on the campus must secure permit tags
and parking spaces from the Director of Main-
You'll need a permit from the Director of
Student Employment in order to act as an agent
for any business firm in any of the dormitories.
Each dormitory plans and participates in emer-
gency drills; be familiar with your dorm's pro-
cedure and regulations and follow them to the
letter. Violation of rules for these drills is con-
sidered a serious offense, as is meddling with
any dormitory fire equipment.
Out of consideration for yourself and others,
observe the quiet or study hours which last from
7:15 till 11 p. m. in the dormitories each day
except Saturday and Sunday. The Library's a
good place to study from Monday through Friday
from 7 to 10 each night; women students must
sign out and in, in their respective dorms.
Notify your house mother if you become ill.
She'll arrange to have your absences from Chapel
and classes excused by signing a list of these
absences on a little yellow form which you can
obtain from and return to the Personnel Office.
Turn in these absence reports, signed, within
two days after you return to classes; otherwise
the excuse will not be approved.
If it is necessary for you to go to the College
Hospital as a patient, you'll w^ant to take your
own pajamias, towels, washcloths, etc., after
arrangements have been made for your entrance
by the head of your dormitory. Visiting hours
in the hospital are between 4 to 7 p. m., and
open hours in the infirmary clinic are 4 until
5 p. m. each weekday; the doctor is there on
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons. Of
course emergency cases will be received any
Regulations imposed by civil laws are auto-
matically College regulations, such as the Ten-
nessee state law forbidding the possession and
use of fireworks.
Nobody appreciates neatness more than we
do, but do your laundering in the laundry rooms,
except in emergencies when small amounts of
light laundry may be done in the bathrooms, and
do your ironing in the laundry rooms or the
other specified places. Each dormitory has its
own rules concerning use of the washing ma-
chines and irons. No laundering is to be done on
Sunday, and no ironing, except emergency press-
ing between 7 and 9 a. m.
In addition to the general rules you've already
read, the women's dorms have some particular
regulations you'll want to be familiar with.
The dormitory Sign-Out Sheet requires your
signature, personally, whenever you leave the
campus, either day or night, and for all night
activities on the campus — Town Night, the
library, or visiting another dormitory. If attend-
ing a College function, return to the dorm as
soon as it's over; arrangements to attend other
functions must be made with the head of your
dormitory or with the Dean of Women.
To be absent from the campus, you must al-
ways sign out and in on the sign-out sheet.
Trips to Maryville or Knoxville may be made
any weekday providing you return to the campus
before 6 p. m.; trips to Knoxville are not made
in the company of men. Groups of two or more
girls may walk in the College Woods on week-
days and Sundays not in company of men. If
you wish to visit over the weekend or to be
absent overnight from the campus, you will have
to have written permission from your home or
have had your parents previously sign the regu-
lar Standing Permissions form which allows you
approximately five visits a semester other than
to your own home; approval for these visits must
be obtained in advance from the dormitory head,
and your plans must be discussed with her so
that she can fill out your activity card properly.
When properly chaperoned and arranged,
week-end camping trips are allowed; seniors and
juniors may have two such trips a year, and
sophomores and freshmen, one.
You'll be asked to serve as monitor for your
floor at least once during the semester. This
means you'll have to be present on your floor
during the time you're on duty, seeing that halls
are kept quiet during study hours and that stu-
dents are in their own rooms after 11 p. m. It's
your job to check on proper use of lights and
radios at night, to answer the buzzer, and to see
that rules in general are obeyed. Violations are
to be reported to the House Committee.
Outgoing telephone calls may be made and
received any time between 6 a. m. and 11 p. m.
Outgoing calls, except to faculty and staff, are
to be made on the pay phones; incoming calls
will be received on the office phone.
You may be summoned before the House Com-
mittee for infraction of these dormitory rules, as
provided for by the monitors and officers of
WSGA: ironing on Sunday other than at the
specified time; abusing light-cut regulations; be-
ing in another's room after 11 p. m.; laundering
in bathroom contrary to regulations; being in
bathroom after 11 p. m. for other than legitimate
reasons; undue disturbances; and for violations
of other dormitory rules.
Study hours in the women's dormitories are
from 7:15 p. m. each day except Saturday and
Sunday. In the sophomore and freshman dorm-
itories closed stucfy hours are kept from 7:30
to 9:30 p. m. In junior-senior dorms three light-
cuts per room are permitted each week; in the
sophomore-freshman dorms two light-cuts per
room per week are allowed.
Here are a few additional regulations that
apply particularly to men students.
Overnight absence must be arranged with the
Head of the men's dormitory. The where-
abouts of all students must be known at all
times, should they be needed for any special
reason. Men may entertain their families in the
dorm lobby at specified times. Men's visiting
hours for student rooms in Carnegie and Bart-
lett are from 3:30 to 7:15 p. m. each day.
Disciplinary measures will be taken by the
Executive Council of the Faculty or the Super-
visor of Men's Residence for infractions of these
rules: abusing light privilege; visiting or having
visitors after 11 p. m.; creating a disturbance in
the dormitory or causing the willful destruction
of property; and violation of other dormitory
Though you may have to room, off-campus for
a while — say. your first year at Maryville — you'll
get into the dorm after while. Till you do, re-
member that the same behavior is expected of
you — if not better — in private homes than the
dormitory heads would expect of you on campus.
Be considerate in your use of radio, lights, and
leisure time. For overnight absences, report to
the Supervisor of Men's Residence in Carnegie
Hall. Men rooming off-campus, both local and
out of town, may use washroomis in Bartlett,
Thaw, and Carnegie, and the lounge room in the
Student Center building.
JUST IN GENERAL
Though the foregoing lists may seem like a
lot of rules, you'll discover if only by reading
between the lines (and we hope you've done
more than that!) that if you are considerate and
well-behaved, you'll get along swimmingly at
Maryville without even knowing there are such
things as regulations and penalties. But a few
will need disciplinary measures, even these:
Demerits, given by the Executive Council of
the Faculty for violations of College regulations;
Dismissal from College, given by the same body
when a student accumulates 15 penalized ab-
sences in one semester, or gets ten demerits, or
persistently fails to cooperate with the general
General regulations, which you'd probably
follow anj'^way, include such as these: Ball
throwing or snowballing nearer buildings than
the roadways is not permitted; Sunday visiting
of drug stores, restaurants, and the like, and
using College athletic facilities on Sunday is not
to be done, and visiting pool rooms or establish-
ments selling beer or other intoxicants is never
to be done. Use of intoxicants by students is
F IS FOR FOOD
If you like to eat — and even if you don't you're
bound to spend some of your semester here
doing just that — you'll soon discover Pearsons
Dining Hall. Meals are served there each day.
Breakfast is served at 7 a. m. on weekdays and
at 8 on Sundays. Luncheon is served at 12:30
p. m. each day. Dinner is served at 6:00 p. m.
Monday through Friday, and at 5:30 on Satur-
days and Sundays.
Your tablemates, all seven of them, will ap-
preciate your appearing well-groomed and well-
mannered at meals. Particularly before dinner
is a good time to freshen up a little, but all
meals deserve your best mealtime etiquette.
Try to make the conversation table-wide, but
not at the expense of your lungs. Loud and
boisterous talking is frowned upon not only by
the College in general but also by those tables
nearest yours. You'll want to be attentive and
reverent during the blessing especially.
Don't forget that your waitress, while she is
interested in your health and well-being, has
classes and obligations of her own. She'll appre-
ciate your consideration in getting to and from
meals on time.
Your guests may eat in the dining hall by
arranging with the Dietician. Prices for break-
fasts are 25c all Vv^eek; lunch costs 60c on
weekdays, 75c on Sundays; dinner is 60c Mon-
day through Friday, and supper is 35c on Sat-
urday and Sunday night.s
A IS FOR ATTENDANCE
Although you are allowed a certain number of
"cuts" from classes, Chapel, Sunday School and
Church, it would be a good idea not to miss any
more than you feel really necessary.
You are advised to keep a careful personal
record of all your cuts. This way, you will know
when you are about to cvercut, which is a very
handy thing to know.
The College will, of course, excuse you for
illness or other emergency upon written request
to the Personnel Office. This request must be
submitted to the main office within two days
after you return to classes. You are to notify the
Head of the Dormitory of any situation which
requires your absence from class. No excuse will
be given unless you do this.
You will also be excused for any authorized
activity, such as scheduled trips for members of
the debate squad, ball teams, choir, etc.
Below, you will find the number of allowed
cuts for each class or service listed, and below
that, you will find the penalties for overcutting.
Read them carefully and get them well in mind.
There is a chart on the next page you may use
to keep a record of your cuts, if you wish.

opinion to the Student-Faculty Senate.
In February, 1949, the present student body
constitution was voted by the student body, hav-
ing previously been approved by the Faculty and

FROM YOUR STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT
Once again we look forward to all the activi-
ties and experiences which another year at Mary-
ville brings. For some of you it is the first year.
To you, the rest of us extend a hearty welcome
and hope that your college career may be a
happy and successful one. We stand ready to
help you in any way we can.
On the next few pages you will find the
student body constitution, newly revised during
the past year. It would be well worth reading
for an understanding of how your student gov-
ernment operates. Many new ideas have been
tried during the past year, and many more will
be experimented with this year. Let us know
what you think as these ideas are advanced; for
whatever action the council takes, it does so be-
lieving that such is best for our entire college
Please don't think of the council as just an-
other organization on the campus. It is your
organization. Your best interest is the sole
purpose for its even functioning. Under the new
representation plan, every student has two or
three channels through which to present ideas or
problems to the council. Please use them that
we may fulfill our purpose which is "to unify
the student body in the common motive of self-
government in order to assum.e responsibility in
the management of our affairs, strengthen the
cooperation between students, faculty, and ad-
ministration, and increase loyalty to the best
interests of the college."

Since 1946 the women students on campus
have carried important responsibilities through
their Women's Student Government Association.
Based upon a constitution worked out coopera-
tively by faculty and student representatives, the
Association has made splendid progress in devel-
oping high morale and effective management in
the women's dormitories.
WSGA makes the rules and enforces them
within the dormitories. Light cuts, care of equip-
ment and rooms, and student conduct come un-
der their rules. Cooperating with the dormitory
Heads, WSGA house chairmen and officers
handle student and dormitory problems.
Even at Maryville there are those girls who
do not always choose to dwell within the laws
made for them. Sometimes when a wrong is
done, it is best friend who inflicts the penalty
for breaking that rule upon best friend. This is
one of the hardest parts of a student government.
This year you are a part of WSGA, for the first
time if you are a freshman. It is almost an im-
possibility for it to exist without your help, so
work with your WSGA officers and remember
that they're just as human as you.
FROM YOUR WSGA PRESIDENT
It is time now for a new year: a new year of
learning and growing, a year of living together
as roommate and dormmates.
This may be a new experience for some of
you, and you will find it a valuable part of your
college life, while to others it will be an old story.
We will look to your cheerfulness and coopera-
tion for assisting us during the school year, and
particularly the first few weeks.
With all the other wonderful things you will
find on "The Hill" one of the most lasting will be
the friendships you make in the dormitory. This
is an advantage that dormitory has over non-
dormitory living. We hope you will take this
opportunity and use it wisely. Your house chair-
man will be happy to receive suggestions and
questions and will be glad to help you attain the
most benefit from dormitory and college life.

MEN'S STUDENT ORGANIZATION
Relatively new in the College organizational
system is the Men's Student Organization. In
1948 MSO was planned and formed for the
main purpose of representing all college men in
Student Council and Student-Faculty Senate.
Since then this growing organization is assum-
ing more and more duties of importance to
student men. In addition to representation it
plays an important role in responsibilities con-
cerning new students and the management of
the men's dormitories.
All men students automatically become mem-
bers of MSO upon entering Maryville College.
True representation cf campus m.en cannot be
possible unless all men join in with the best
spirit of the program.
FROM YOUR MSO CHAIRMAN
Two years ago the fellows of Maryville College
decided that their group was not adequately rep-
resented in the student government and organ-
ized themselves into the Men's Student Organi-
zation of Maryville College. Since that time
representatives of the men students in the dorm-
itory, temporarily off-campus, and town resi-
dents, have presented the point of view of our
group on Student Council, in the Student-Faculty
Senate, and in other phases of the student gov-
You new fellows will want to become ac-
quainted with your representative of MSO; it's
his job to uphold your interests in student body
affairs, as stated in our constitution.
Though fairly recent in organization, MSO has
tried to plan fairly and adequately for the men
students; in the coming year we'd like to see
more of our plans come into action. That can
only come through your help, your backing,
and your ideas.
Best of opportunities in the coming year!

FROM YOUR YMCA PRESIDENT
The YMCA takes pleasure in welcoming you
to Maryville College. We stand ready to serve
you in any way we can to help make your stay
on the Hill a happy and prosperous one.
The purpose of the Y is to minister to the
needs of body, mind, and spirit of young men.
Such an organization plays a vital part on a
college campus where many men are for the first
time living away from their homes and churches.
Therefore, when we plan our work for the year,
we try to make a place in Y for every man. If
you would like to help in leading the service at
prayer meeting, the Devotion and Discussion
committee would like to see you. On the other
hand, if your talents lie in the field of athletics,
there is a place for you on one or more of
our intramural teams. (Incidentally, last year
the Y won two championships in intramurals.)
Very shortly after school opens in the fall,
the old members officially welcome the new
men on the campus at the watermelon pow-wow.
Then later in the semester we go on the annual
hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National
Park, so be sure to bring your mountain climb-
ing shoes to Maryville with you.
We earnestly look forward to your arrival and
hope to welcome you all into membership in the
While Maryville College puts its major em-
phasis, naturally enough, on scholastic standing,
you'll want to be active in a few extra-curricular
fields too. We warn you — you'll be tempted to
join all the fascinating clubs and organizations
the campus boasts. But book learning comes
first; better still, find a happy balance between
grades and activities. You'll find enough of both
to satisfy you; and, while our hospital is cool
and comfortable, it isn't run as a rest home for
exhausted activity hounds.
We hope you'll find activities that will make
the most of your time and interests. Efforts and
enthusiasm wear better and are more appreciated
when they're concentrated. If you budget your
time wisely, you'll have not only good grades
but also an important place in campus life.
Alpha Gamma Sigma
Alpha Gamma Sigma is Maryville's honor
society similar to Phi Beta Kappa in scholarship
standards. Ten percent of graduating seniors
may be admitted to this organization provided
that the members have a grade point ratio of 6.5
which is somewhat more than a B average.
Pi Kappa Delta
Speech arts organization of Maryville is Pi
Kappa Delta, representing Tennessee Alpha
Chapter of National Honorary Forensic Fratern-
ity. Its purpose is to stimulate interest in inter-
collegiate oratory, debate, and public speaking.
Deserving members of this organization are
awarded various degrees of merit according to
rank and achievement. Each year the debate
squads, varsity and freshmen, attain high po-
sitions in national and local tournaments.
Sigma Delta Psi
Sigma Delta Psi is an athletic society in which
membership is attained by the successful com-
pletion of various athletic tests in the presence
of a responsible committee.
Theta Alpha Phi
Student dramatists upon achieving member-
ship requirements may belong to Maryville's
Tennessee chapter of the national honorary dra-
matic fraternity, Theta Alpha Phi. Members of
this organization take a leading part in dramatic
activities on campus.
Pi Gamma is a YW sponsored organization for
women town students through which town and
dormitory students meet and become better ac-
quainted with each other. Many luncheons are
given throughout the year, and you'll probably
be invited to at least one of them if you're a
Student Vols is part of a national movement
for students to promote interest in missionary
work and the mission fields. Regular meetings
are held each Sunday night after Vespers, usu-
ally in Bartlett auditorium. Interesting programs
concerning various phases of missions are
planned for the meetings, and whenever possible,
missionaries are invited to speak to the group.
If you are vitally interested in local Christian
mission service, you'll want to join Parish Pro-
ject. This organization is sponsored and sup-
ported jointly by the Board of National Missions,
the Board of Christian Education, Maryville Col-
lege, and New Providence Presbyterian Church.
Students who apply and are accepted perform
such duties as Sunday School teaching and ad-
ministration, teaching weekday Bible classes in a
selected group of public schools, supervising
young people's societies, and leading character

basis for membership in Writer's Workshop.

Varied activities and friendships highlight the
program of Bainonian Society. Soon after school
starts Bainonian joins with her brother society
Athenian to present a Rush Week program;
Freshman "rushees" get green and white beanies
and membership in a Greek-letter chapter of
this friendly society. Weekly meetings through
the year are held in Bainonian Hall.
Organized in 1894, Theta Epsilon Society has
played an active part in campus life. Through its
Kush Week program, which is presented in co-
operation with Alpha Sigma, its brother society,

stresses good times and lasting friendships
among its members and among those of the

the College by Alpha Sigma Society, founded in
1884. In addition to joining with its sister society
Theta Epsilon for a yearly Rush Week program.
Alpha Sigma conducts regular weekly meetings.
Lasting friendships are made in Athenian
Society, oldest society on the campus. College
men appreciate a society that brings them a
varied and interesting social program and also
active participation in the College's intramural
athletics program. Athenian joins Bainonian, its
sister society, in its annual Rush Week program.
and holds weekly meetings in Bartlett Hall.
International Relations Club
Well-informed speakers, forums, discussion
groups, and movies highlight the semi-monthly
meetings of International Relations Club on the
campus. Affiliated internationally through the
Carnegie Endowment for International Peace,
the College club and its hundreds of brother
clubs seek to interest college students in current
affairs and international problems which must
be solved to secure peaceful civilization. To en-
gage in the transaction of club business and be
eligible for its officer ship one must join at the
beginning of the semester, but all MCers are
urged to attend and participate in the discussions
For all those College men and women prepar-

offers interesting programs and a chance to dis-

also with professional medical people the prob-
lems and practices of medical vocations. Its
meetings feature informal lectures by doctors
and nurses, movies of medical information, and
tours of local hospitals.
If you're planning to go further than freshman
French, you may well look forward to member-
ship in the French Club. Composed of thirty
members who are taking advanced French and
also qualify by scholarship and interest, this club
features semi-monthly programs of French songs,
games, movies and plays, and holds an annual
social affair. The French Club offers educational
and recreational opportunities for you if you're
The German Club accepts as members all Col-
lege men and women who are interested in Ger-
man culture, regardless of whether or not they
are German students. In regular meetings twice
a month the club presents interesting programs
to stimulate interest and arouse participation in
different phases of German culture.
Entertaining but informative programs with
a Spanish theme are presented twice monthly
by the Spanish Club. Not only the language but
also the customs and culture of Spanish-speak-
ing countries come in for discussion and comment
by club members, who are elected from members
of the Spanish classes. Club plans include the
annual outdoor picnic and the Christmas party-
featuring the Spanish pinata.
Girls, if you're sports minded and athletically
inclined, you can win membership in the "M"
Club by earning 400 or more points in the Point
System. The Point System leads to both good
sportsmanship and "M" Club m-embership. Be-
sides their two-hour-a-week Point System par-
ticipation, club members meet monthly for busi-
ness discussions and hike annually for a week-
end in the Smokies.
If you're artistically minded, membership is
open for you in the Art Club. Sketching parties,
trips to various arts exhibits, movies, and lectures
by professionals in the field of art are highlighted
in its programs. Various exhibits which come to
the College for display in Lamar Library are
also arranged by this small but active club.
"Hold that pose — got you!" And you're snapped
by an enthusiastic member of the Camera Club.
Besides its meetings to discuss photography as
a hobby and a profession, the club has its own
darkroom in Bartlett Hall which its members
may use. Organized in 1946, the club continues
to grow and to develop its members' abilities.
In 1936 a group of lovers of good music organ-
ized the Disc Club to encourage music apprecia-
tion on the Hill. Well-planned half-hour pro-
grams of music, accompanied by appropriate
comments by an interested student or faculty
member, are presented twice monthly after the
evening meal. There are no officers, no dues —
if you like good music you'll want to become

This exclusive girls' club wouldn't even tell
your editors what their secret initials mean!
Originally formed for hiking purposes, this club
now has more varied activities but has retained
its eight-member limit.
The High Society is one of the newest clubs
on campus. Reciuirements for membership are

dance number in the May Day Pageant.
Future Teachers of America
Newest club on the Hill is the Jasper Converse
Barnes Chapter of the Future Teachers of Amer-
ica. If you're planning to teach, you're eligible
for membership in this affiliate of the National
Education Association. Monthly programs center
around movies, discussions, and items of interest
to future educational workers.
N IS FOR NEWS
Mary ville offers several opportunities for those
interested in writing to do some really creative
work. The newspaper, annual, and "M" Book
give chances to feature writers, sports writers,
artists, and those interested in other phases of
The Highland Echo is the weekly College
newspaper. The staff is made up of members
from, all the classes, with the Editor and Business
Manager coming from the senior class. Students
may join the Echo staff by competitive writing.
The Echo keeps the students well informed of
College affairs as well as a bit of the world
The Chiihowean is the annual year-book which
is published by members of the junior class. It
gives a pictorial coverage of the year's happen-
ings as well as pictures of nearly all the students
grouped by classes. The editor, business man-
ager, and their staffs work many long hours on
this publication, and the results are never dis-
The Alumni Magazine sends news of the Col-
lege and alumni to former students of the Col-
lege. It is published quarterly by the Alumni
The "M" Book is this little tome you are now
reading. It is published every year by the
YMCA and YWCA and is the official College
handbook. Its purpose is to let the student know
what the score is concerning College rules and
regulations, customis, and activities.
D IS FOR DRAMA
One of the departments most seriously affected
by the loss of our Chapel in the big fire two years
ago has been the Dramatics Department. Cos-
tumes, scenery — net to mention that big, beauti-
ful stage! — went up in smoke, and productions
since then have had to start from scratch — and a
meager scratch, at that.
This year three major plays will be presented
under a new plan which has not yet been com-
pleted in time for publication. Formerly pro-
duced by Societies, this year the casts and crewb
of the three-acters will be open to all try-outs
frcm the student body. Plays will be presented
this year in Alumni Gym. Former MC stage hits
have been "Dear Ruth," "Papa Is All," "The
Merchant of Venice," and "Wuthering Heights."
Besides the three-acters. Experimental Theatre
puts on monthly one-act plays in groups of two
on the stage in Bartlett Hall. "Stars are made,
not born," and the groundw^ork budding young
Barrymores get from Experimental Theatre paves
the way to future BIG rcles.
Saturday night programs under the auspices of
the Social Board v^/ill occasionally call for dra-
matic talent, too; last year saw a slightly short-
ened version of "HMS Pinafore," and of course
there's always May Day and Rush Week pro-
M IS FOR MUSIC
If you have any musical ability whatsoever,
be it singing, blowing a tuba, or playing a
kazoo, there is plenty of opportunity at Mary-
ville for you to develop those talents. The
musical program for the year begins with the
performance of the marching band at the foot-
ball games and ends with the choir's final
anthem on graduation day. Recitals are given
nearly every week by the music majors and any-
one may attend these.
Faculty recitals are presented from time to
time. Band and orchestra concerts are also given
at least once a year.
A Capella Choir
This group provides good training and real
pleasure for those who are interested in singing.
It is composed of about sixty members who inust
pass rigid try-cuts before they are accepted. The
group participates in the weekly Vesper services
and the daily Chapel programs as well as pre-
senting special programs in Maryville and sur-
All Girl Choir
This group is composed, oddly enough, entirely
of girls, who are admitted through try-outs each-
semester. The group, about fifty-six in number,
sometimes relieves the A Capella Choir at Ves-
per services and presents other programs in
Maryville and adjoining cities. In the spring.,
the girls join with the Men's Glee Club and
present one of the big campus programs of the
Men's Glee Club
After several years of inactivity, the Men's
Glee Club was reorganized two years ago and
has enjoyed considerable success. The member-
ship consists of about forty boys, but additional
members may come in via try-outs each semes-
ter. In the spring, the fellows and the All-Girl
Choir present a program called "Springtime
Serenade," consisting of popular and semi-class-
ical numlDers from well-known musicals, which
has become one of the highlights of the spring
Those students who enjoy playing a musical
instrument are urged to try out for the college
marching band. The band, numbering about
fifty pieces, plays for all the home football
games and takes one one-of-town trip with the
team. For sophomores, the marching practice
takes the place of the intramural requirement.
When football season is over, the marching band
reorganizes as a concert band. You don't have to
be in one to get in the other, although you would
be welcomed. The concert band gives an out-
door concert during the last few days before
For those who prefer their music a bit more
classical, the college orchestra has a place. Due
to the chapel fire, which destroyed many of
the instruments, the orchestra has been reor-
ganized only a few years. It has grown rapidly,
however, and is now back to its pre-fire standard.
The group, each year, accompanies the "Messiah"
and gives one or two concerts annually.
Tau Kappa Chi
Tau Kappa Chi is a musical organization for
the women of the College who are either music
majors or interested applied music students. Its
purpose is to promote student and community
interest in music. The aims are to raise the gen-
eral academic standard of the music department;
to provide a goal for all students interested in
music; and to promote thoroughly trained mu-
sicianship and further the understanding of all
types of music.
S IS FOR SPORTS
Every American boy has, at one time or an-
other, dreamed of being a star in some sport.
At Maryville, there is every chance of making
that dream a reality. Maryville is very active
in intercollegiate athletics and also maintains a
well organized intramural sports program for
those who wish to participate. For the girls,
there is a well-developed point system whereby
girls may earn a sweater with a "M" on it or
an "MC" monogram.
Maryville's Athletic Policy
Maryville stands for a well-rounded, Vv^ell-
developed college life. The College understands
that one must develop physically as well as
mentally and morally, and fcr that reason places
an emphasis on athletics of all kinds. Besides
being well represented in intercollegiate athletics,
the College also sponsors an intramural program
for men and a point system for girls.
Maryville does not buy her athletes. Those
w^ho come here do so v/ith the understanding
that places en the teams are earned by physical
abilities and acceptable scholarship; nothing else.
In addition, physical prowess alone doesn't
"make" a student at Maryville. Scholastic ability
and ''all-'roundness" count, too.
The Athletic Association is composed of the
entire study body and faculty of Maryville Col-
lege. Its purpose is to work i^ cooperation with
the Department of Athletics of the College for
the furtherance of desirable conditions in that
field. Each spring an Executive Board (com-
monly called the Athletic Board of Control) is
elected to act for the Association. This Board
is composed of a president, vice president, secre-
tary, 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
managers for athletic teams, and making awards
to members and managers of these teams as well
as to cheerleaders and "point-system" girls.
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 taking great
strides forward since the war. Before the war,
Maryville was known throughout the South for
her strength in minor sports. Now, however, we
are enjoying a little more prestige in the field
of major sports than was formerly accorded us.
Excellent records in football, basketball, and
baseball have accounted for our major sport
recognition. Teams in cross-country, track,
swimming, and wrestling have all given a good
account of themselves. An undefeated tennis
team also adds greatly to our sporting laurels.
We hope to hold on to the laurels we have won
and to accumulate a few more in the coming
year. Let's all get behind our teams and sup-
port them, win or lose, because school spirit is
part of Maryville's athletic program too.
The intramural program gives Maryville men
and women a chance to participate in various
non-varsity sports for good fellowship, vigerous
competition, and physical fitness. Both men and
women have a similar system and organization,
each with a Director who will give full infor-
mation regarding each program. The fellows
participate in football, soccer, volleyball, basket-
ball, swimming, track, and softball. The girls
take part in soccer, volleyball, basketball, swim-
ming, tennis, and softball. The intramural pro-
gram includes the regular physical education
classes for sophomores, two hours each week of
participation being required. Although not re-
quired of juniors and seniors, many of the upper
classmen actively take part in the fun and rec-
reation 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.
Participation in the different sports qualifies a
girl for a given number of points. To those earn-
ing over 300 points awards are made at the end
of each year. Every girl must walk the seven-
mile loop twelve times a year, swim twice a
month, and spend an hour in exercise daily.
Those who play basketball, soccer, softball, 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
perfect attendance. The observance of health
rules gives a maximum of 25 points a semester.
High scholarship adds a percentage of the total.
Members of the "M" Club (those who have
earned at least 400 points) take a mountain hike
each spring, and enjoy other activities.
S IS FOR SONG
Where Chilhowee'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 Maryvilie!
As thy hilltop crowned with cedars
Ever green appears.
So thy memory fresh shall linger
Through life's smiles and tears.
Lift the chorus, w^ake the echoes,
Make the welkin ring!
Hail the queen cf all the highlands!
Loud her praises sing!
(Words and Music by Charles Huffman, '49)
On Highlanders down the field,
Rolling up a high score!
Tear into the end zone,
Smash on through that line,
Send a rousing cheer on high
And our boys will shine,
Come on and fight, fight, fight!
Come on and fight, fight, fight!
For dear old Maryvilie!
