President of Maryville College 


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. 


President of Maryville College 


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 

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 
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. 


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 
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.

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. 


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 


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. 



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. 



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-

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.

Hello, Students, 

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. 



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. 

Sincerelj'' yours, 

Ginni Schwarz

BY-LAW NO. 2 — Senior Privileges 

The proposal is that senior women shall have several 
privileges not possessed by underclass women. The 
purpose is to give students, upon attaining the classifi- 
cation of senior, open recognition of rank. 

The provisions are as follows : 

1. Each senior woman may have a second Town 
Night each week with the same rules in effect as 
stated in the Student Council Town Night proposal. 

a. Monitors shall be on duty each night. 

1) Monitor duty will be voluntary to a cer- 
tain extent, after which it will arbitrarily be assigned 
from an alphabetical list of senior women. 

2) It will be necessary to have only one 
monitor on duty each night if she has a date. Otherwise 
a girl must be in a group of three girls. The assign- 
ment sheet will be posted several days beforehand so 
that the proper arrangements can be made. 

3) On the nights when no girls sign out 
before nine o'clock it will not be necessary for monitors 
to be on duty. If a group of girls decides to go after 
nine o'clock, one of the girls in the group will act 
as monitor. 

4) Those girls who do not wish to cooperate 
in the monitor system will not receive the privileges. 

5) It shall be the duty of monitors to report 
to Executive Committee of WSGA all underclass women 
taking privileges set aside for senior women, and all 
senior women infringing upon provisions of senior 

2. On the second Town Night (other than Tuesday) 
dating in Knoxville will be permitted senior women 
provided they report back to their dormitories by eight 


thirty p. m. Groups of three or more women may have 
the same privilege. Only bus transportation is ap- 

3. Senior women shall also have the privilege of 
dating on Sunday afternoon from three o'clock until 
the supper hour. They shall be allowed to date on 
campus, walk in the residential section of the city, 
and sign up for parlor dates. Groups of couples may 
walk in the College Woods or around the seven-mile 

It shall be the duty of the Executive Committee 
of WSGA to impose or recommend the following penal- 
ties : 

A. Infringments by senior women of any of the 
above provisions will result in suspension of all senior 
privileges for four months. 

B. Any underclass women taking privileges without 
permission set aside for senior women shall be reported 
by senior women to whom privileges are allowed. 

1. Underclass women in town on any night except 
Tuesday night without special permission from the 
Dean of Women or the house mother shall forfeit the 
Tuesday Town Night privilege for four months of the 
school year. 

2. The infraction by underclass women of the senior 
privileges of dating in Knoxville, unless authorized to 
be there, and Sunday afternoon dating shall result in 
a suspension of their Tuesday Town Night for four 
months of the school year. 

3. It shall be the duty of the Executive Committee 
of WSGA to withdraw any or all privileges of a student 
who does not live up to the general standards or prin- 
ciples or whose conduct is unseemly.

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. 



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- 

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

YMCA and YWCA as they stand here are two

The Y's are two of the most important organ-

YW seems able to help everyone "Get the Center

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

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.

rank and achievement. Each year the debate 
squads, varsity and freshmen, attain high po- 
sitions in national and local tournaments. 


Sigma Delta Psi

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 

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 
dorm girl. 

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 




selected group of public schools, supervising 

young people's societies, and leading character

\/ 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. This organization 
sponsors prayer meetings on campus, preaching 
and pastoral work in the county jail, and many 
other services, including work at local missions 
and rural churches. 

Writer's Workshop 
Literary interest and achievemxent are the 
basis for membership in Writer's Workshop. 
Members are elected from the junior and senior 
classes. Each member writes and presents to 
the group two papers each year for criticism and 
in turn serves as literary critic. 



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. 
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. 

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 
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

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 


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. 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. 

Art Club 

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. 

Camera 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. 

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. 


"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. Reciuirements for membership are 
that one be female and five feet seven inches 
tall— or taller. At weekly meetings the club 
learns ballet, pantomine, and choreography. The 
High Society appears in various campus shows; 
last year it presented outstanding performances 
in a Barnwarming sequence and in a "dream" 
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. 



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 

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 


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- 

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 

"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. 




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- 



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 

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. 



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. 


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. 

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.

Hail to Maryvilie!

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!

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!
