Alma Mater 

Where Chilhowee's lofty mountains 
Pierce the southern blue, 

Proudly stands our Alma Mater, 
Noble, grand, and true. 


Orange, Garnet, float forever, 

Ensign of our hill! 
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater, 

Hail to Maryville! 

As thy hilltop crowned with cedars 

Ever green appears. 
So thy memory fresh shall linger 

Through life's smiles and tears. 

Lift the chorus, wake the echoes. 

Make the welkin ring! 
Hail the queen of all the highlands! 

Loud her praises sing! 

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, 

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 Maryville!

President of Maryville College 


Each new college year brings both sadness and 
joy to those of us who are charged with the con- 
tinuing task of administration and teaching at 
Maryville College. We always have a sense of 
sadness because the seniors of last year whom 
we have come to know and to value are absent. 
But we find a genuine interest and joy in the 
returning of those in the other classes and in the 
first coming of several hundred new students. 

To all who come I extend welcome and good 
wishes. I hope that the college year of 1950- 
1951 will be a truly successful one for the Col- 
lege and for each individual associated with it. 
This hope can be fulfilled only through the 
earnest and wise efforts of the College and its 
staff on the one hand and of students on the 
other. There is a vast difference in the standards 
and earnestness which different students bring to 
college. In welcoming each of you I commend to 
you the higher, not the lower, standards you see 
among your fellow students. 

The magnificent new Fine Arts Center and 
other factors will make this a year of interest 
and progress into which we welcome you. 

President of Maryville College 



A college campus would hardly be complete 
without its own particular set of traditions. 
Maryville's traditions will come to mean some- 
thing special to you as they have to the rest of 
us. These are the things — little and big — which 
will long be remembered and cherished as repre- 
senting your four college years. 

When you first arrive on campus, you will 
think that college consists chiefly of standing in 
line. Don't be discouraged, however, for after 
the first week everyone has finally stormed all 
the necessary offices and has found his way into 
a well-filled lecture room. One line which is 
somewhat different in dress and procedure from 
all the rest leads to the FACULTY RECEPTION 
which is held during the first week of school. 
Your dress is formal; your handshake firm (at 
first, anyway); and your smile, your Ipana 
brightest. Here you will meet all the faculty 
whom you will soon know better as time goes on. 

You will certainly know it's RUSH WEEK 
when the brother and sister societies team up 
to present clever programs for their respective 
membership drives. Last year Theta Epsilon's 
program featured Billy Rose's Diamond Horse- 
shoe, complete with soft lights, sweet music, Billy 
Rose and Diamond Lil. Bainonian entertained 
during its Rush Week by returnng to Maryville's 
Scotch ancestors for the Week of the Highland 
Fling. Be sure to pledge your whole-hearted 
support to one of these organizations. 

It won't be long before you discover the well- 


worn bit of pavement surrounding the main 
campus — CIRCLE DRIVE. After the evening 
meal until 7:15 (7:00 on Sundays) many enjoy 
this pleasant walk. 

Soon the big night of the week arrives. Tues- 
day night or TOWN NITE is the time for you 
and your date to go skating or bowling or to 
enjoy a movie. You'll also have time for a 
hamburger and French fries before signing in at 
the dorm at 10:00. 

On other week-day nights as well as during 
the day you may get that coke and sandwich at 
the STUDENT CENTER. This building houses 
the attractive lounge, recreation center, and 
Y-STORE which is open at various hours during 
the day and night. It's also a good place to stop 
on the way home from a big game or any other 
Saturday night activity. 

For a program of inspiration to start the new 
week, attend VESPERS which is held each Sun- 
day night at 7:00 in the library. A guest speaker 
and the music of the outstanding Vesper Choir 
closes the Sunday program with a tone of quiet 
dignity and worship. 

The BELL in Anderson tower would hardly 
seem to be in the tradition category, but there it 
belongs. Throughout the day its ringing reminds 
all of meals and classes, and after each vic- 
torious football game, it heralds the good news. 

You will have little trouble falling into the 
Maryville tradition of FRIENDLINESS. We are 
all proud of this trait and wish to continue it. 

Until last year the College ARTIST'S SERIES 
was discontinued because of the loss of the 
chapel. By using the Alumni Gym for the con- 
cert hall the series of noted guest artists was 
resumed. We are looking forward to another 
year of outstanding performances. 

lovely senior girl is elected to reign as queen. 


Dorms are colorfully decorated to receive the 
alumni who arrive in great numbers. The 
morning is marked by a dignified chapel service 
commemorating the College's founding, and in 
the evening the Highlanders meet one of their 
toughest foes on our home gridiron. 

Thanksgiving day is one of general festivity 
on campus. It is the time for the annual BARN- 
WARMING event which is THE big show of 
the fall. It is planned by both Y organizations 
and features the best talent the campus can 
produce. Reigning monarchs are the King and 
Queen chosen from the senior class and their 
attendants representing the other classes. 

And then Christmas is soon here. Before 
vacation everyone looks forward to the annual 
presentation of Handel's MESSIAH. Yours can 
be one of the hundreds of voices which present 
this inspiring oratorio. 

Each February the college interrupts its pro- 
gram a few hours each day for a week for the 
FEBRUARY MEETINGS. These religious ser- 
vices are held each morning and evening and give 
a renewed spiritual strength for the weeks to 

February also marks the College's drive for its 
FRED HOPE FUND. This fund was established 
as a tribute to one of Maryville's outstanding 
graduates — Fred Hope who gave his life serving 
in Africa. Today this fund enables one of our 
fellow students to work in the foreign mission 
field. You will want to contribute to this worth- 
while drive. 

In the interest of the WORLD STUDENT 
SERVICE FUND YMCA has sponsored a MIN- 
STREL SHOW each spring for the past three 
years. This rollicking entertainment is enjoyed 
by many each year. 


— 10— 

College Woods at dawn is one of true natural 
beauty. As the sun peeps over the Smokies, 
everyone thrills to the choir's singing "Alleluia, 
Christ is Risen." 

Each spring the old and new Y cabinets hold 
the yearly Y RETREAT. In a picturesque moun- 
tain setting these groups plan the activities for 
the coming year in Y. 

OPEN HOUSE is the time to see how the other 
half lives. Everyone displays his room to best 
advantage. This occasion is preceded by ex- 
haustive house cleaning which leaves everyone 
limp until the next time. 

The big musical program of the spring is 
SPRINGTIME SERENADE which was inaugu- 
rated three years ago by the All-Girl Choir and 
Men's Glee Club. Framed in a lovely stage set- 
ting, these groups present a fascinating program 
of musical numbers from popular operettas ac- 
companied by twin pianos and Mr. Hughes at 
the console of the electric organ. 

Our lovely amphitheatre in the College Woods 
has become a scene from Uncle Remus and Alice 
in Wonderland for the annual MAY DAY PAG- 
EANT. Being May Day Queen is a cherished 
honor for some senior girl. Her attendants are 
chosen from the other classes and reign with 
her over the festivities. 

COMMENCEMENT time is both happy and 
sad. Classes and exams are over, but last good- 
byes are difficult to say to close friends who may 
not be seen for many years. After the final 
services, we go away feeling it is now our 
College, and we have become a part of its life 
and personality just as it has also become a 
part of ours.

One of the biggest adjustments you'll have to 
make at college is that of living with a dorm 
full of people. This will require far more 
patience, understanding, and consideration than 
ordinarily exercised in a home where only three 
or four people are living together. Remember 
that the rights of one person are limited so that 
the rights of another person or a group may be 
respected. In order to help you have a happy 
and enjoyable dormitory life we are jotting down 
a few suggestions. 

You may enjoy living in a messy room, but 
to your roommate and others it may be obnox- 
ious. Do not wait until time for the yearly Open 
House to clean up your room. 

Every night many people in the dorm want 
and need to do some concentrated studying. 
Your consideration in observing closed study 
hours, or your neighbor's ''busy signs," as well 
as refraining from loud talking, door-slamming, 
and hall-yelling, will be deeply appreciated. 
You too will appreciate these courtesies on your 
neighbor's part. 

Everyone who wants to listen to a radio has 
one of his own, so it won't be necessary for you 
to play yours loud enough for the people down 
the hall to hear. 

Guests and visitors often come at the most 
unexpected times. You will always want to be 
properly clad when in the halls; otherwise it can 
be very embarrassing for an outsider to meet 

— 12— 

Nothing can brand you quicker than being a 
perpetual "griper" or always making "catty" 
remarks about the faculty or other students. 
Remember sincerity and cheerfulness are *'musts" 
in making and keeping friends. 

Let's not forget that your "living room" in the 
dorm belongs to many other people, too. Your 
conduct in the parlors and public rooms should 
be such that others will feel both free and wel- 
come to come in at all times. 

But if you are not interested in making friends, 
then you'll 

— Monopolize the telephone, 

— Sweep dirt into the halls and leave it there, 

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

— Barge into your friends' rooms during study 
hours and waste their time, 

— Get up earlier than most people in the morn- 
ing and make a general disturbance, 

— Use the ironing boards on the floors to do 
your week's ironing, 

— Never clean the tubs, basins, etc., after using, 

— Take supplies from the medicine chest and 
leave them in your room.

mannered at meals. Take time to freshen up 
a bit before meals, especially dinner. At the

The two very best things about beginning a 
new year are meeting and getting to know new 
girls who come in, and greeting old students 
whom you haven't seen for a whole summer, and 
so I say "Hi!" 

Although still considered rather new, Mary- 
ville's student government program has already 
become a tradition on the Hill. W.S.G.A. is a 
special part of this program for girls living in 
the dormitories. Through it, we have gotten 
many privileges which add to the pleasure of 
college. Privileges mean responsibilities, how- 
ever, and for that reason W.S.G.A. becomes the 
responsibility of every individual girl. 

I'm sure that we can make this year one of the 
most successful years yet, if we all realize that 
it takes cheerfulness, cooperation, and depend- 
ability on the part of every girl. By accepting 
these responsibilities we can make dormitory 
living one of the most pleasant aspects of college 
life, and one of our most cherished memories. 
Let's try.

women shall be reported by senior women to whom 
privileges are allowed.

C^xita- (^utricuic 

College is the place to learn selection and dis- 
crimination. Start using this principle when 
choosing your extra-curricular activities. You 
must not go to the extreme and join every club 
that comes your way. If you do, you'll soon find 
yourself all bogged down and your enthusiasm 
lost in social activities as well as studies. 

During your freshman year pick one or two 
activities on which to concentrate your efforts. 
If your grades remain high and you find time 
for other activities, you'll have plenty of time 
to become a member of another club later in 
your college career. But remember that such 
activities as working on the Echo and debating 
take mere time each year. Once you have joined 
a group try to stay with it through the rest of 
your college life. When you become a junior or 
senior you may find that you are forced to give 
up something, but the least you can do is not to 
substitute one club for another. 


Pi Kappa Delta 

Maryville has the distinction of having the 
Tennessee Alpha Chapter of the national honor- 
ary forensic fraternity, Pi Kappa Delta. Mem- 
bers of this organization are awarded orders and 
degrees according to rank and achievement. 
Maryville participates in the Pi Kappa Delta 
National and Provincial Conventions. Last year 


the group won first place in men's debate at the 
Provincial Convention which was held in 
Athens, Georgia. 

Theta Alpha Phi 

Talented dramatic students may, upon meet- 
ing certain requirements for membership, be 
initiated into the Tennessee Delta Chapter of the 
national dramatic fraternity, Theta Alpha Phi. 
Members of this organization take a leading part 
in dramatic activities on the campus. All stud- 
ents have opportunity to try out for the plays 
given by various organizations. 

Sigma Delta Psi 

Maryville's chapter of Sigma Delta Psi was 
established in 1930. Membership is earned by 
meeting the requirements of various athletic 
tests in the presence of a responsible committee. 

Alpha Gamma Sigma 

Alpha Gamma Sigma was organized in the 
spring of 1934, for the purpose of motivating 
high scholarship among students. Its require- 
ments are similar to those of Phi Beta Kappa. 
Ten percent of the graduating class may be ad- 
mitted provided the members have a grade point 
ratio of 6.5 or somewhat more than a B average. 


Pi Gamma 

Pi Gamma, sponsored by YW, is for the pur- 
pose of promoting fellowship and friendship be- 
tween town and dormitory girls. The Pi Gamma 
girls have a luncheon every two weeks to which 
they usually invite an equal number of dorm 
girls. Friendships between town and dorm girls 


are mutually advantageous and enjoyable. Some 
of the happiest memories of college can be the 
week-end that you as a dormitory girl spent in 
the home of a town friend or the time you as a 
town girl were invited to spend the night in the 
dorm. No girl should go through college without 
such an experience. 

Student Volunteers 

Student Vols is part of a national movement 
for students who wish to promote interest in the 
missionary enterprise. It is composed not only 
of students who are planning to go to the field, 
but also of all those who are in any way inter- 
ested in missions. Regular meetings are held each 
Sunday night after Vespers, usually in Bartlett 
Hall. The weekly programs present interesting 
aspects of the work being done on both the for- 
eign and home mission fields. 

Parish Project 

Through the program of the Parish Project, 
students participate in leadership training and 
Christian service. Under the supervision of the 
Department of Religion this organization is spon- 
sored and supported jointly by the Board of 
National Missions, the Board of Christian Edu- 
cation, Maryville College, and New Providence 
Presbyterian Church. Limited college credit is 
given to Parish Project students who perform 
such duties as Church School teaching and ad- 
ministration, teaching weekday Bible classes in 
selected groups of public schools, and supervise 
young people's societies. 

Ministerial Association 

The Ministerial Association, organized in 1900, 
is open to all students who are planning to be- 
come ministers or who are interested in other 


phases of the Christian service. In addition to 
its regular meetings twice a month the As- 
sociation shares in planning with the other three 
religious organizations, YM, YW, and Student 
Vols, the campus prayer meeting and all other 
campus religious programs. Its members are 
encouraged to engage in some form of service in 
local mission and rural churches in the vicinity 
of Maryville. 

Writer's Workshop 

Literary interest and achievement 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. 


This arts committee, organized in the fall of 
1949, is made up of students and faculty de- 
sirous of coordinating fine arts' activities. Its 
purpose is to provide occasional fine arts pro- 
grams of general interest to faculty and stud- 
ents. It does not function as a club. 



Varied activities and friendships highlight the 
program of Bainonian Society, First week after 
school starts this year, Bainonian will join her 
brother society Athenian to present a Rush Week 
program. Last year's theme for Rush Week 
was "Week of the Highland Fling." Weekly 
meetings through the year are held in Bainonian 


Theta Epsilon 

Organized in 1894, Theta Epsilon Society has 
played an active part in campus life. Last year 
Theta won the cup for giving the best skit in the 
Annual Skit Contest. The third week of school 
this year will find Theta and her brother society, 
Alpha Sigma presenting their Rush Week. Last 
year's theme for this important week was Billy 
Rose's Diamond Horseshoe. 

Alpha Sigma 

Alpha Sigma, founded in 1884, offers men of 
the college an opportunity to participate in ac- 
tivities that will build true friendships. It enters 
teams in all intramural sports, and holds an- 
nual weekend trips to the mountains, barbecues, 
banquets, and similar activities along with its 
weekly meetings which may be educational, cul- 
tural, or entertaining. Each year it joins its 
sister society Theta Epsilon in producing a dance 
and a rush week program. 


Lasting friendships are made in Athenian so- 
ciety, 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 athletic 
program. Athenian joins Bainonian, its sister 
society, in its annual Rush Week program and 
holds weekly meetings in Bartlett Hall. 

Inf-ernational Relations Club 

Maryville's IRC club is affiliated internation- 
ally by its purpose and program with hundreds 
of other such clubs on college campuses through 
its relation to the Carnegie Endowment for In- 
ternational Peace. The club's main objective is 


to spread interest and information on current 
affairs and international problems. It seeks to 
accomplish this purpose through forums, discus- 
sion groups, movies, and well-informed speakers 
at its semi-monthly meetings. 

Pre-Med Club 

To anyone who is planning to go into medicine 
or nursing the Pre-Med Club offers an excellent 
chance for hearing lectures on medicine and re- 
lated fields from various prominent members of 
those professions. Often there are student par- 
ticipation programs or selected short movies. 
The club meets twice a month throughout both 
sem^esters and interest is the only prerequisite 
to membership. 

French Club 

The French Club is composed of thirty mem- 
bers who are taking advanced French and who 
qualify for membership by scholarship and in- 
terest. This club features semi-monthly programs 
of French songs, games, movies, plays, and holds 
an annual social affair. 

German Club 

All college students who are interested in 
German culture, regardless of whether or not 
they are German students, are eligible for mem- 
bership in the German Club. Regular meetings 
pre held twice a month to stimulate interest and 
arouse participation in different phases of Ger- 
man culture. 

Spanish Club 

Club members, elected from members of the 
Spanish classes, discuss the language, customs, 
and culture of Spanish-speaking countries. Be- 
sides the semi-monthly meetings the club has 


annual outdoor picnic and Christmas party which 
features the Spanish pinata. 

"M" Club 

"M" Club is the girl's athletic club of Mary- 
ville College. Membership is attained by making 
a total of 400 or more points through participa- 
tion in what is known as Women's Varsity. Be- 
sides meeting two hours a week in Women's 
Varsity the members meet monthly for business 
discussions and enjoy an athletic activity to- 
gether. The high spot of the club's activities is 
the week-end hike in the Smoky Mountains once 
each semester. 

Men's "M" Club 

The Men's "M" Club was re-organized this 
past year after a lapse of a decade or so. Mem- 
bership is open to all varsity lettermen, and male 
members of the coaching faculty. The purpose 
of the organization is to further the bonds of 
athletic brotherhood on the Maryville Campus, 
to be of service to the school and the athletic 
program, and to increase loyalty to the best in- 
terests of the College. A club room for members 
is the immediate project of the group. 

Disc Club 

Disc Club was organized in 1936 to encourage 
music appreciation. Its organization is very in- 
formal, and all students are automatically con- 
sidered to be members. Half-hour programs of 
music with comments by student or faculty mem- 
bers are presented twice monthly after the eve- 
ning meal. 


Camera Club 

This club has its own darkroom in Bartlett 
Hall which all its members may use. It holds 
meetings to discuss photography as a hobby and 
a profession. Organized in 1946, the club con- 
tinues to grow and to develop its members' 

Future Teachers of America 

Jasper Converse Barnes Chapter of the Fu- 
ture Teachers of America was organized in the 
spring of 1949. All students planning to teach 
are ehgible for membership in this club which 
is affiliated with the National Education As- 
sociation. Last year this chapter grew from 13 
to 51 members which entitled it to be called a 
Victorj'' Chapter in the FT A Yearbook. 

B. G. 

This is a small club of eight campus girls who 
keep the meaning of their initials a secret. At 
the end of each year two freshmen and one 
sophomore are elected members. Originally or- 
ganized for hiking, the club today is purely so- 
cial . 

High Society 

Requirements for membership of this society 
are that one must be a female and five feet seven 
inches tall or taller. At the weekly meetings the 
club learns ballet, pantomine, and choreography. 
The society appears in various campus shows, 
such as Barnwarming and May Day. 



Opportunities for creative writing are offered 
through the various college publications. Many 
who are interested in journalism gain valuable 
experience by serving on the staff of the college 
newspaper, annual, or "M" Book. 

Highfand Echo 

The Highland Echo is the weekly College 
newspaper. The Echo staff is chosen by com- 
petitive writing and is composed of members 
from all classes. The Editor and Business Man- 
ager are elected by the staff and are members 
of the junior or senior class. The Echo keeps 
the students well informed of College affairs and 
includes as well a bit of the world situation. 


The Chilhowean is the annual year-book which 
is published by members of the junior class. It 
gives a vivid account in pictures of the outstand- 
ing events of the year as well as individual pic- 
tures of almost all of the student body. The an- 
nual is one of the best means of remembering 
college friends and activities for many years to 

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 

As you have already discovered, the "M" 
Book is the little volume you are now reading. 
It is published every year by the YMCA and 
YWCA and is the official College handbook. 
College rules, customs, and activities are de- 
scribed within for the student's benefit.

Major Productions 

Last year saw a great development in the 
drama department. For the first time since the 
chapel fire in 1947 aJl the major plays were pre- 
sented on the campus. A stage was constructed 
so that it could be erected in the Alumni Gym- 
nasium for the plays and taken down quickly 
after the productions. 

Three outstanding types of plays were given 
last year. In the fall, the chilling murder mys- 
tery, "Laura" was presented. "Hedda Gabler" 
was produced in March, and "Joan of Lorraine" 
was the Commencement play. 

Two of the major plays formerly produced by 
Societies were opened last year to try-outs from 
the entire student body. 


Under the direction of the head of the drama 
department the Maryville College Playhouse wdiS 
started in the fall of 1949. Last season there 
were 23 Players and 68 Apprentices working 
toward the position of Player. 

Experimental Theatre 

Besides the major plays the Experimental 
Theatre gives several one-act plays throughout 
the year. Some of those which were given last 
year in Bartlett Hall were "Gammer Gurton's 
Needle," "Theatre of the Soul," and "Echo."

Other Drama Programs 

Saturday night programs often use dramatic 
talent, such as last year's "Babes in Toyland," 
sponsored by the Social Board, and the annual 
Easter play, sponsored jointly by YM and YW. 
Then there are always May Day and Rush 
Week, which need people with dramatic ability. 

If you are interested in drama there will be a 
place for you at Maryville. 


Maryville College has been noted for out- 
standing debate teams. Last year Maryville's 
varsity debaters won first place in the Smoky 
Mountain Tournament; in women's debate at 
Tennessee State Tournament; and in men's de- 
bate at Pi Kappa Delta Provincial Tournament; 
and third place in both men's and women's de- 
bate at South Atlantic Tournament. 

Along with debating goes oratory, extempore, 
after-dinner, and other individual speaking con- 
tests. Maryville was awarded 4 out of the 9 in- 
dividual first place trophies at the Tennessee 
State Tournament. 

Freshmen are given an opportunity to partici- 
pate in the speech program. 

If you have debated in high school, you cer- 
tainly will want to go out for college debate. 
However, if you have not debated before, don't 
let that stop you. Several who have had no 
previous experience get on the team every year. 


rvludic Ljfoupd 

For those with musical ability Maryville of- 
fers a variety of organizations where talents may 
be developed. The musical program for the year 
begins with the performance of the marching 
band at the football games and ends with the 
choir's final anthem on graduation day. Re- 
citals, which anyone may attend, are given from 
time to time by applied music students and 

Vesper Choir 

The Vesper Choir provides good training and 
real pleasure for those who are interested in 
singing. It is composed of about sixty members 
who must pass rigid try-outs before they are 
accepted. The group participates in the weekly 
Vesper services and the daily Chapel programs 
and also presents special programs in Maryville 
and surrounding cities. 

All Girl Choir 

The fifty girls who compose this group are 
selected through tryouts each semester. They 
relieve the Vesper Choir at the Sunday evening 
service a number of times throughout the year. 
In the spring the Girls' Choir combines with the 
Men's Glee Club to present "Springtime Sere- 

Men's Glee Club 

This group consists of about forty boys, but 
additional members may come in via tryouts 


each semester. In the spring the fellows and 
girls present one of the outstanding programs of 
the year. It consists of popular and semi-classical 
numbers from well-known musicals. 


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 out-of-town trip with the team. For 
sophomores the marching practice takes the 
place of the physical education requirement. 
When football season is over, the marching band 
reorganizes as a concert band which gives an 
outdoor concert during the last few days before 


Orchestra members are admitted and placed 
by tryouts each fall. They gain valuable ex- 
perience in presenting two concerts of classical 
numbers annually and accompaning the Messiah. 
Their spring concert features an outstanding 
music student playing a well-known concerto. 

Tau Kappa Chi 

This 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 general 
accademic 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. 





You can have an orange "M" to wear on your 
sweater by participating in varsity sports. No 
one is permitted to wear other school sweaters 
at Maryville. If you want to wear a letter, there 
is opportunity. Both women and men may earn 
an *'M." 

Maryville Athletic Policy 

One must develop physically as well as men- 
tally and morally. For that reason Maryville 
places emphasis on all kinds of athletics. Be- 
sides intercollegiate athletics the College spon- 
sors an intramural program. 

Maryville does not buy her athletes. Those 
who participate in intercollegiate sports earn 
their places on the teams by physical abilities 
and acceptable scholarship. 

Athletic Association 

All students and faculty of Maryville College 
belong to the Athletic Association. This organi- 
zation works with the Department of Athletics 
to help further the development of that field. 
Each spring a president, vice-president, secre- 
tary, three boys, two girls, and two faculty rep- 
resentatives are elected to the Executive Board 
which acts for the Association. The Director of 
Athletics is an ex-offico member of the Board. 
This Board elects managers for athletic teams, 
makes awards to members and managers of 
men's teams, to members of Women's Varsity, 
and to the cheerleaders. 


Intercollegiate Athletics 

Maryville is known for her strength in minor 
sports. She competes with the best colleges and 
universities in the field. Last year Maryville 
placed high in wrestling in the Southeastern 
AAU Tournament. The cross-country team came 
through the season with an excellent record. 

In major sports Maryville holds her own with 
colleges of the same size. She has good records 
in football, basketball, and baseball. Despite the 
great loss with the graduating of many G. I.'s 
last year, Maryville expects to have strong teams 
this year in the major sports. 

Let's all get behind our teams and support 
them, win or lose, because school spirit is part 
of Maryville's athletic program too. 

Women's Varsity 

As most colleges, Maryville no longer offers 
a women's intercollegiate program. Instead there 
has been substituted Women's Varsity. Partici- 
pation in various sports qualifies a girl for a 
specific number of points. Every girl who makes 
500 points earns a sweater with a "M" on it, 
those earning 400 points receive a "M", and to 
those who earn 300 points there is given an 
"MC" monogram. All women earning 400 or 
more points may become members of the "M" 

Girls participating in this program must swim 
twice a month, obey the health rules, and ex- 


ercise daily for an hour. Those who play basket- 
ball, soccer, softball, or volleyball can earn 30 
points for each team they are on and 20 points 
for each squad. Taking part in swimming, track, 
tennis, hiking, or aerial darts can entitle a girl 
to the maximum of 50 points. Additional points 
are awarded for sportsmanship, perfect attend- 
ance, and captain or manager of a team. 


Every man and woman has a chance to par- 
ticipate in non-varsity sports through the in- 
tramural program which develops good char- 
acter as well as physical fitness. Both men and 
women have a similar system and organization. 
The fellows participate in touch football, soccer, 
volleyball, basketball, swimming, wrestling, 
track, and softball. The girls take part in soccer, 
volleyball, basketball, swimming, tennis, and 
softball. This program includes two hours a 
week of regular physical education required of 
freshmen and sophomores. Although not re- 
quired of juniors and seniors, many upper class- 
men take active part in the fun and recreation 
which these sports provide.
