RALPH W. LLOYD 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 successful year. —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 Nights. 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 —7- 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 sing. 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 -8- 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 console. 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 Remus tales. 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 permitted. 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- mediately. —10— ,\UI 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 Knoxville provided ' ^ ^ •.\ 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. — 12— 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 life. 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 •13- 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- barrassment. 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 its furnishings. 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 •14- 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- tenance. ^15— 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 time. Regulations imposed by civil laws are auto- matically College regulations, such as the Ten- nessee state law forbidding the possession and use of fireworks. —16— 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. WOMEN'S DORMITORIES 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, —17— 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. —18— MEN'S DORMITORIES 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 regulations. OFF-CAMPUS MEN 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. —19- 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 College program. 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 strictly forbidden. —20— 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 —21 — 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. — 22« FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES Chapel 3 Sunday School or Church (total of) 3 1 -credit-hour class 1 2 -credit-hour class 1 3-credit-hour class 2 4-credit-hour class 2 JUNIORS AND SENIORS Chapel 5 Sunday School or Church (total of) 6 1-credit-hour class 1 2-credit-hour class 2 3-credit-hour class 3 4-credit-hour class 4 Deducticn of Grade Points and Semester Hours The Personnel Office deducts grade points and semester hours from your total according to the following: a.

Through the Council student matters may go up for faculty 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 Student Council. This constitution is the com- pletion of the efforts of many Student Councils. and enforcing Town Night regulations, your Student Coun- cil has various other duties to perform. All-campus elections are conducted b y the Council and through its Social Board it plays a large part in plan- ning and directing social activities.

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 community. 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."

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. -43- FROM YOUR WSGA PRESIDENT Hello here! 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.

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. -50- FROM YOUR MSO CHAIRMAN Welcome, Fellows: 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- ernment. 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! Sincerely yours, Ray Holsey —51 — CONSTITUTION OF THE MEN'S STUDENT ORGANIZATION OF MARYVILLE COLLEGE PREAMBLE We, the men of Maryville College, realizing the need for an organization which can represent all men of the Collge, do establish this Constitution.

Fight, Scots, Fight! Fight, Scots, Fight, Scots, Yea, Scots, Fight! —54— Y IS FOR CHRISTIANITY // / / / e^ YMCA and YWCA as they stand here are two groups of letters — all of equal importance; but the theme of this year's Y program is "get the center right." Now, let's change the letters with emphis on the center — ymCa and ywCa. Al- though the organi- zations are separate they both stand for the sam.e thing — Christianity through leadership and fel- lowship. Each Sunday af- terncon shortly after lunch the Y's meet, sometimes separate- ly and sometimes jointly, for a brief worship s e r V ic e through many dif- ferent mediums planned by the worship com- mittees. The Y's are two of the most important organ- izations on campus. Each year they sponsor various all-campus programs separately and combine to furnish you with the M Book and the "Y" Store. The Y kitchen is a place where you can go and prepare food for a party you are having in the YW rooms or you can go when you get a sudden longing to smell cookies or a cake baking in an oven. Although you're already a member of Y, you will be given an opportunity to become an active mem-ber. The Y's urge you to take that pledge and join them in "getting the center right" this year. —55— YWCA OFFICERS AND CABINET Officers President Dot Holverson Vice-President Mary Watt Secretary Janet Cummings Treasurer - Mary Wills Nu Gamma Chairman Judy Breen Cabinet Barnwarming Sarah Durant Ginni Schwarz Devotions Alita Bryant Winnie Schaumberg House Elaine Smith Beverley Musick M Book Ruth Davis Wilma Robinson Missions Marian McBride Martha Joy Parker Orphanage Margaret Anne Brown Pi Gamma Tommie Mynatt Publicity Anne Gates Radio Ann Jenkins Social .

We sincerely hope you will grow to love the College and its traditions as much as we do. Among the organizations which impress you first when you arrive is the YWCA. We feel its program is the most far-reaching on the campus. Through mission work, Barnwarming, parties, hikes, and Sunday afternoon programs, YW seems able to help everyone "Get the Center Right." This will be a good year in YW, but it will be very good if you will help us and let us help you. Most sincerely, Dorothy Holverton, President YWCA -57- YMCA OFFICERS AND CABINET Officers President Bill Chalker Vice-President Henry Callaway Secretary Jim Lester Treasurer Jack Buckley Cabinet Athletics Joe McNeill Community Paul McNeill Devotions and Discussions George Ogle Delbert Poling Fellowship Webster Fue Joe Claud Inter-Racial and Missions John Shew M Book Jim Dance Charles Williams Maintenance Jim McKee Publicity Wallace Moore Radio Bill Stan Worship Ray Holsey Bob HoUey Y Store Bob Larson —58- FROM YOUR YMCA PRESIDENT Greetings Men! 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 YMCA. Sincerely, Bill Chalker President YMCA ■59— JL-TRA CURRICULAR 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. ORGANIZATIONS 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.

Student Volunteers 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. Parish Project 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 -61- ^^ b^ selected group of public schools, supervising young people's societies, and leading character \ \ I \ / / ' 0^ building activities ^ \ \ 1 1 w / rj f Qj. ^Qyg ^^^ g.^^g tJX ^ ^^ U Parish Project is conducted as a class, and college credit is given to those who complete the semes- ter's work satisfac- J:^ torily. v^ Ministerial rVffn <;^ Association Cy^^ <% Organized in 1900 \/ for students plan- ning to become min- isters and for those interested in other phases of Christian ministry, the Ministerial Association has become one of the most vital and active religious groups on campus.

Each member writes and presents to the group two papers each year for criticism and in turn serves as literary critic. CLUBS Bainonian 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 —62— this friendly society. Weekly meetings through the year are held in Bainonian Hall. Theta Epsilon 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, and its weekly meetings during the year, it stresses good times and lasting friendships among its members and among those of the other societies. Alpha Sigma Fun, fellowship, and activity in the College's intramural sports program are offered men of 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. Athenian 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 —63— urged to attend and participate in the discussions and programs. Pre-Med Club For all those College men and women prepar- ing for medical careers — and that includes nurs- ing and medical technology — the Pre-Med Club offers interesting programs and a chance to dis- cuss both with other students in your field and 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. French Club 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 so minded. German Club 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. Spanish Club 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 —64— annual outdoor picnic and the Christmas party- featuring the Spanish pinata. "M" Club 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.

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. Disc Club 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 acquainted with the Disc Club. —65— "B. G." 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. Hig-li Society The High Society is one of the newest clubs on campus.

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. -66— 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 journalism. Highland Echo 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 situation. Chiihowean 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- appointing. Alumni Magazine 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 Office. "M" Book 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. —67-— D IS FOR DRAMA I 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- ductions. -—^8-^ 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- rounding cities. 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 year. 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 -69- 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 term. Band 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 commencement. Orchestra 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. —70— 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. Athletic Association 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. Intercollegiate Athletics 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. Intramural 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- —72— 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. Point System 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. -73— S IS FOR SONG Alma Mater Where Chilhowee's lofty mountains Pierce the southern blue, Proudly stands our Alma Mater, Noble, grand, and true. Chorus 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! On Highlanders (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, Highlanders! 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! —74— GLOSSARY OF UNFAMILIAR TERMS Bell — that object hung in Anderson tower which calls us to classes and to meals, and which, when rung following a football game, indicates another Scotty victory.

Cut — what you take when you're absent from a class on your own responsibility; check on your allowances elsewhere in this book. Friendliness — MC's chief pride and joy. Recog- nizable by a cheerful "Howdy!" which will soon make you one of the big and happy Col- lege family. Honor Roll — what you're on if your last semes- ter's average was B or better.
