President of Maryville College 



WI 



come 



This welcome is written two weeks after the 
1950-1951 Commencement and thirteen weeks 
before the 1951-1952 Convocation. We have just 
said goodbye to the second largest graduating 
class in Maryville College history. We are pre- 
paring now to welcome a new freshman class 
and to welcome back three old classes. The num- 
ber of you who can come is more uncertain than 
usual, because international conditions are more 
uncertain than usual. 

But there is no uncertainty about our welcome 
to all who can come. In behalf of the entire 
College I extend sincere good wishes for a 
happy and a profitable year of study and life 
together. 

With our welcome we would like to offer, as 
educators seem to want to do, a bit of special 
warning and advice. The warning is against dis- 
couragement in the face of the uncertainties so 
dominant in the world in our time and against 
the idea that serious effort is useless; the ad- 
vice is to set a steady course for yourself and to 
follow it earnestly and hopefully. 

As you follow this course there will be many 
friends among faculty and students ready to 
help.

President of Maryville College

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 Maryville! 

As thy hilltop crowned with cedars 

Evergreen 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! 



There are some things about Maryville which 
are very special to a.11 of us who are old students 
and which we know you will treasure before long. 
When you capture the spirit of Maryville and 
become a part of our College family, you will 
find your love for her will be broader and deeper 
because of them. These special "somethings" are 
the traditions which are so much a part of Mary- 
ville. We know that when you're old and gray 
you'll have some vivid and pleasant memories of 
Scotty Hill, and you'll feel a sort of nostalgia 
when you think of the traditions of your four- 
year stay here. 

You'll always remember your first few days 
at Maryville as days of lines — registration .lines, 
Treasurer's Office lines. Bookstore lines, and 
more lines. Don't let them discourage you, though. 
They will be over in a few days and soon classes 
will begin. But there's one line we want to tell 
you about before we go on. It's probably the 
.longest one of all, and we're sure you won't for- 
get it very soon. 

We're speaking, of course, of the long line of 
hand-shakers at the FACULTY RECEPTION. 
For this line you girls will want to wear your 
prettiest formal, and you fellows your best suit 
and tie. Then you'll go with your brightest Ipana 
smile and a firm handshake (at first, anyway), 
and you'll meet the MC faculty members. 

RUSH WEEK comes very near the first of the 
year with all of its festivities. Membership in the 
girls' societies — Bainonian and Theta Epsilon — 
and the mens' societies — Alpha Sigma and Athen- 
ian — is open to all members of the student body. 



and the four societies go all out to line up new 
students as prospective members. In consecutive 
weeks the two brother-and-sister societies con- 
duct intensive membership drives which are 
climaxed by the formal program on Saturday 
night. Last year Bainonian and Athenian present- 
ed a "Week on the High Sea" complete with 
pirates and all, and Theta and Alpha Sig made a 
journey through "Rainbow Land." It doesn't 
matter so much which society you choose, but be 
sure to choose one and pledge your whale-hearted 
support to it. 

It won't be long before Tuesday night rolls 
around. Tuesday night at Maryville is TOWN 
NITE, the one night in the week when you and 
your date can go downtown for a movie, bowling, 
skating, or for just a hamburger or soda before 
signing in at the dorm by 10 p.m. 

On other week-day nights, as well as during 
the day, you may feel the need of a coke, sand- 
wich, or an ice cream cone at the STUDENT 
CENTER. Here you'll find an attractive lounge, 
a recreation center, and the Y-STORE. Incidental- 
ly, it's a good p.lace to stop on your way home 
from the Saturday night doin's on campus, too. 

It won't be long, either, before you discover 
the two adjectives which are so important to us 
at Maryville— WARMTH AND FRIENDLINESS. 
The spontaneity with which you reply to the 
friendly "hi" and bright smiles between classes 
will mean as much to you as to those you meet. 

You'll find that VESPERS is a program of 
worship and inspiration which will get the week 
off to a fine start. Held each Sunday night at 
7:00, VESPERS features outstanding guest speak- 
ers and music by Marville's own Vesper Choir. 

Noted guest artists are heard in the ARTIST'S 
SERIES. The series was discontinued for several 
years because of the chapel fire; but by using 
the Alumni Gym as a concert hall, we can now 
look forward to more of these excellent concerts.

Sometime early in the fall, the College begins 
its drive for the FRED HOPE FUND, which was 
established as a tribute to the memory of one of 
MaryviLle's outstanding graduates — Fred Hope 
who spent his life as a missionary in Africa. 
Today this fund enables one of our fellow students 
to work in the foreign mission field. You'll want 
to contribute to this worthwhile drive. 

Soon FOUNDERS AND HOMECOMING DAY 
comes in all its dignity. In the morning a chapel 
service solemnly marks the founding of the 
College. Dorms are colorfully decorated to re- 
ceive the alumni who arrive in great numbers. In 
the afternoon there's a big Homecoming parade 
through town, and that evening the Scotties 
meet their toughest foe on the old home field. 
Oh yes — you'll envy that lovely senior girl elected 
to reign as Homecoming Queen, too. 

Your guess is as good as ours as to what the 
theme of this year's BARNWARMING will be. 
This is THE show of the fall and is held each 
Thanksgiving eve in the Alumni Gym. Sponsor- 
ed by the Y's, every effort is made to present the 
best talent on campus. You'll enjoy the visits 
through the little "shops" before the main fea- 
ture. King and Queen, chosen from the senior 
class, and attendants from each of the four class- 
es are elected by the student body. But, like the 
theme, the court is kept a top secret until Barn- 
warming night. 

In no time at all Christmas is here, bringing 
with it a welcome vacation (preceded by a siege of 
final exams). In the midst of all the pre-Christ- 
mas rush you'U want to take time out for the 
annual presentation of Handel's THE MESSIAH. 
The Vesper Choir, the All-Girl Choir, and the 
Men's Glee Club form the nucleus of the chorus, 
but yours can be one of the hundreds of voices 
which unite to present this inspiring oratorio. 
The College orchestra also takes part, and Miss 
Davies is the accompanist at the organ. 



—9— 



You'll enjoy your January vacation well 
enough, but we'll bank on your eagerness to get 
back on campus and into all the activities 
here! In February comes the week when the 
emphasis is shifted m.ore to spiritual thoughts 
during FEBRUARY MEETINGS. It will be to 
your advantage to attend these religious services 
each morning and evening to gain renewed spirit- 
ual strength for the weeks to come. 

Once each year the dorms hold OPEN HOUSE 
when the fellows and girls display their rooms to 
the best advantage to each other and to the 
general public. This is the time when you see 
how the other half lives and is a.l.ways immediate- 
ly preceded by rather exhaustive house cleaning 
and followed by loud sighs of relief. 

Nothing can compare with the thrill of seeing 
the sun's first rays burst over the Smokies as the 
Choir sings "Alleluia, Christ Is Risen." It's worth 
getting up early and trapesing out to the College 
Amphitheatre to the EASTER SUNRISE SER- 
VICE. 

Each spring the old and new Y Cabinets have 
their annual Y RETREAT. Held in a picturesque 
mountain setting, the retreat affords time for 
these groups to plan the activities for the com- 
ing year in Y. 

A delightful musical program of the spring 
is SPRINGTIME SERENADE, inaugurated four 
years ago by the All-Girl Choir and Men's Glee 
Club. Framed in a lovely setting, these groups 
present a fascinating program of many of your 
favorite musical numbers from popular operettas. 
Serenade is accompanied by outstanding music 
students at the twin pianos and Mr. Hughes at 
the console of the electric organ. 

Our lovely amphitheatre in the College Woods 
becomes such varied scenes at the Emerald City 
of Oz, Alice's Wonderland, or a Southern planta- 
tion with Uncle Remus for the annual MAY DAY 
PAGEANT. Being May Queen is a cherished 



•10— 



honor for some senior girl. Her attendants are 
chosen from the other classes and reign with her 
over the festivities. 

And before you know it, COMMENCEMENT 
comes. Classes and exams are over, and dignified 
services are climaxed by the commencement ex- 
exercises with the procession of the Daisy Chain, 
the faculty, and the graduating class. The Daisy 
Chain, composed of 14 girls from the junior class, 
make the long daisy chains through which the 
processional passes. 

It's a happy occasion for the seniors — but yet 
a sad one, for last goodbyes are difficult to say. 
We feel sure the departing seniors will have 
more than just the initials after their names to 
remember, though. They are a part of the Col- 
lege which has meant so much to them, and cer- 
tainly it will become a part of our lives and per- 
sonalities, too.

One of the biggest adjustments you'll have to 
make at college is that of living with a dorm 
full of people. It virill require far more under- 
standing and patience than many of you dreamed 
possible. The oft-quoted Golden Rule applies in 
a special way here. Remember that the rights of 
one person are limited so that the rights of ano- 
ther person or a group may be respected. We're 
jotting down a few suggestions here that we feel 
will be very valuable to you in making your days 
in the dorm happy ones. 

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. 

Every night many people in the dorm want 
and need to do some concentrated studying. You 
will appreciate it when your neighbors refrain 
from loud taking, door-slamming, and hall-yelling, 
and when they observe closed study hours and 
your "JDusy signs;" likewise, your neighbors will 
appreciate these courtesies on your part. 

You may enjoy living in a messy room, but to 
your roommate and those about you it may be 
obnoxious; so don't wait until time for the yearly 
Open House to clean up your room. 

Guests and visitors often come at the most 



—12— 



unexpected times. Always appear properly clad 
when in the halls; otherwise it can be very em- 
barrassing for an outsider to meet you, and 
vice versa. 

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

Always keep your conduct in the parlors and 
public rooms such that others will feel both free 
and welcome to come in at all times. 

If you're not interested in making friends, then 
you'll 

— Monopolize the telephone, 

— jSweep 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, and yours as wgU, 
— Get up earlier than most people in the morning 

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 

them, 
— Take supplies from the medicine chest and 

leave them in your room, 
— Borrow extensively from everybody.

Meals are served in the Dining Hall on the 
first floor of Pearsons Hall according to the 
following schedule: 

Weekdays: 7:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 6:00 p.m. 

Saturdays: 7:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m. 

Sundays: 8:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m. 

Your guests may eat in the dining room by 
arranging with the Dietitian. Meal prices are as 
follows: 

Weekdays: 

Breakfast, 35c; Lunch, 75c; Dinner, 75c. 

Saturdays: 

Breakfast, 35c; Dinner, 75c; Supper, 40c. 

Sundays: 

Breakfast, 35c; Dinner, $1.00; Supper, 40c. 

Your tablemates, all seven of them, will ap- 
preciate your appearing well-groomed and well- 
mannered at meals. Take time to freshen up a 
bit before meals, especially dinner. For Sunday 
dinner, both boys and girls are expected to wear 
their "Sunday best." 

Try to make conversation table-wide, but re- 
member loud and boisterous talking is in poor 
taste and is annoying to those at tables nearest 
yours. At the table acquire a bit of "polish" to 
your manners. After all, bad table manners are 
not considered cute, and it isn't difficult to 
say "please" and "thank you." 

Your waitress has classes and obligations too, 
so she will appreciate your consideration in get- 
ting to and from meals on time. 

By all means, you will want to be attentive and 
reverent during the blessing.

GREETINGS FROM YOUR STUDENT 
BODY PRESIDENT 

Fellow Students, 

As the school year begins, many varied 
thoughts enter our minds. First, let me say 
that a hearty welcome awaits each of the new 
students from all of us here on Scotty Hill. You 
will find studies at the center of college life, 
but built around this vital center is a vast pro- 
gram of activities designed to please you. 

It would be to your interest to read the next 
few pages which contain the Constitution of the 
Maryville College Student Body. Even you old 
students might find it valuable to check last 
year's revisions. Let us all realize that the Stu- 
dent Council is everyone's organization. It can 
only be as good as you want it to be. The success 
of the Council depends on your actions and opin- 
ions. 

Naturally our policy is to work for closer 
student-faculty relations and to design a program 
more harmonious with the will of the majority. 
Stop on Wednesday evening — get acquainted with 
the Council — tell us your ideas. 

I'm sure the predominant word should be 
"cooperation." Let's all pull together for a suc- 
cessful school year. The best of luck to a.11 of 
you in the year ahead! 

Sincerely, 

Bob Cuthill 

Student Body President

?>RESIDENT 



Hi Fellas, 

Just want to take enough of your time to 
let you know that we've got the "welcome" mat 
all swept and ready for "you all!" Seriously 
though, boys, I do want to use this privilege to 
extend YM's heartiest and most sincere best 
wishes for the year ahead. 

We have a good gang now, but we want you 
to find your spot with us. No excuses! There is 
a spot for you if you're interested. We don't

feel that we can do more and do it better by 
working and serving together. 

The doors are open, the fire of friendship is 
catching, so come on in and warm yourself with 
those who are interested in you! 

Sincerely,

/\'t^a L^urdctitc 



College is the place to learn selection and dis- 
crimination. Start using this princp.le 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 activit-

Remember that such activities as the Echo 

staff and debating take more time each year. 

Once you have joined a group try to stay with 

it through the rest of your College life. If, 

during your junior or senior year, you feel you 

are forced to give up something, the least you 

can do is not to substitute one club for another.

HONORARY FRATERNITIES 



Pi Kappa Delta 

Maryville has the distinction of having the 
Tennessee Alpha Chapter of the national honorary 
forensic fraternity, Pi Kappa Delta. Members 
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 oratory, and a rating 
of good at the National Convention. 

Theta Alpha Phi 

Talented dramatic students may, upon meeting 
certain requirements for membership, be initiat- 
ed 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; however, 
opportunity is given to all students to try out 
for the various plays given throughout the year. 

Sigma Delta Psi 

Marjrville'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. 



■59— 



OTHER ORGANIZATIONS 

Pi Gamma 

Pi Gamma sponsored by YW, is for the purpose 
of promoting friendship and fellowship between 
town and dormitory girls. The girls in Pi Gamma 
have a luncheon every three weeks to which 
they usually invite dorm girls. Friendships be- 
tv/een town and dorm girls are mutually advan- 
tageous and enjoyable. Some of the happiest 
memories of college can be the weekend that you 
as a dormitory girl spent in the home of a town 
friend or the time you as a town girl were in- 
vited 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 interest- 
ed in missions. The theme of the group last year 
was "Go, Give, and Pray." Regular meetings are 
held each Sunday night after Vespers, usually in 
Bartlett Hall. The weekly programs present in- 
teresting aspects of the work being done on 
both the foreign 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 
sponsored and supported jointly by the Board 
of National Missions, the Board of Christian Edu- 
cation, MaryviUe 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 supervising 
young people's societies. 

Pre-Ministerial Association 

The Pre-Ministerial Association, organized in 
1900, is open to all students who are planning 
to become ministers or who are interested in 
other phases of the Christian service. In addition 
to its regular meetings twice a month the Asso- 
ciation shares in planning with the other religious 
organizations, YM, YW, and Student Vols, the 
campus prayer meeting and all other campus re- 
ligious programs. Its members are encouraged to 
engage in some form of service to .local missions 
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. 

Muses 

This arts committee, organized in the fall of 
1949, is made up of students and faculty desirous 
of coordinating fine arts' activities. Its purpose 
is to provide occasional fine arts programs of 
general interest to faculty and students. It does 
not function as a club.

CLUBS 



Bainonian 

Varied activities and friendships highlight the 
program of Bainonian Society. The third week

through the year are held in Bainonian Hall. 

Theta Epsilon 

Organized in 1894, Theta Epsilon Society has 
played an active part in campus life. The second

week was "Rainbow Land." Meetings are held 
each week in Theta Hall. 

Alpha Sigma 

Alpha Sigma, founded in 1884, offers men of 
the College an opportunity to participate in ac- 
tivities that will build true friendship. It enters 
teams in all intramural sports and holds an 
annual weekend trip to the mountains, barbecue, 
banquet, and similar activities. It joins with its 
sister society Theta Epsilon in producing a dance 
and a rush week program. 

Athenian 

Lasting friendships are made in Athenian 
Society, oddest 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 program. 
Last year Athenian won the cup for giving the 
best skit in the Annual Skit Contest. Athenian 
joins Bainonian, its sister society, in its annual 



-62- 



Rush Week program and holds weekly meeting 
in Bartlett Hall. 

International Relations Club 

Maryville's IRC club is affiliated international- 
ly by its purpose and program with hundreds of 
other such clubs on college campuses through 
its relation to the Carnegie Endowment for 
International 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, dis- 
cussion groups, movies, and well-informed speak- 
ers at its semi-monthly meetings. 

Pre-Med Club 

To anyone who is planning to go into medi- 
cine or nursing the Pre-Med Club offers an ex- 
cellent chance for hearing lectures on medicine 
and related fields from various prominent mem- 
bers of those professions. 

Often there are student participation programs 
or selected short movies. The club meets twice 
a month throughout both semesters 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 song, games, movies, plays, and holds 
an annual social. 

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 
are held twice a month to stimulate interest and 



-63— 



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

"M" Club 

"M" Club is the girls' athletic club of Mary- 
ville College. Membership is attained by making 
a total of 400 or more points through participa- 
tion jn what is known as Women's Varsity. In 
addition to athletic activities two hours a week, 
the members meet monthly for business discus- 
sions and enjoys an athletic activity together. The 
high spot of the club's activities is the weekend 
hike in the Smoky Mountains once each semester. 

Men's "M" Club 

The Men's "M" Club was re-organized two 
years ago after a lapse of a decade or so. Mem- 
bership is open to all varsity ilettermen, 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 interests of the College. A club room for 
members is the immediate project of the group. 

Disc Club

music appreciation. Its organization is very in- 
formal, and all students who wish are considered 
to be members. Half-hour programs of music 
with comments by student or faculty members 



—64— 



are presented twice monthly after the evening 
meal. 

Camera Club 

This club has its own darkroom in Bartlett

and a profession. Organized in 1946, the club 
continues to grow and to develop its members' 
abilities.

Teachers of American was organized in the 
spring of 1949. All students planning to teach 
are eligible for membership in this club which 
is affiliated with the National Education Asso- 
ciation. 

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 
social. 

Business Club 

Maryville's newest campus organization — the 
Business Club — ^was formed last spring for the 
purpose of promoting a better understanding of 
sound business practices and to give its members 
a wider acquaintance with the various fields of 
business and the opportunities and possibilities 
that they offer. This is done through semi- 
monthly meetings at which different business 
leaders talk to the group and films on various 
phases of business are shown. Although member- 
ship is limited to majors in business administra- 
tion and economics, its meetings are open to 
anyone interested in the field of business. 

—65— 




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. 
Highland 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. 
ChilhoAvean 

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. 
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 

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. 



i 




If you have any musical ability whatsoever, 
be it singing, blowing a tuba, or playing a violin, 
there's ample opportunity at Maryville to develop 
those talents. The musical program gets in full 
swing with the performance of the marching 
band at the football games and ends with the 
choir's final anthem on graduation day. Recitals 
which anyone may attend are given from time 
to time by applied music students and faculty. 

VESPER CHOIR 

The Vesper Choir provides good training and 
genuine 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 
as well as presenting special programs in Mary- 
ville and surrounding cities. The choir has sung 
in Birmingham, Atlanta, Montgomery, Knoxville, 
Chattanooga, Washington, Philadelphia, Balti- 
more, Pittsburgh, Wilmington, Cleveland, Colum- 
bus and Cincinnati. 

ALL-GIRL CHOIR 

The sixty girls who compose this group are 
selected by try-outs each semester. They relieve 
the Vesper Choir at the Sunday evening service 
a number of times a year. In the fall the Gir.ls' 
Choir combines with the Men's Glee Club to pre- 
sent a sacred concert, and in the spring the com- 
bined groups present "Springtime S'erenade." 



-67— 



MEN'S GLEE CLUB 

This group consists of about forty boys, but 
additional members may be admitted by tryouts 
each semester. The sacred concert in the fall and 
"Springtime Serenade" are the highlights of the 
years activities for the glee club. 

BAND 

The students who enjoy playing a musical in- 
strument 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 
freshmen and sophomores the marching practice 
takes the place of the physical education require- 
ment. When football season is over, the marching 
band reorganizes as a concert band which gives 
an outdoor concert during the last few days be- 
fore commencement. Don't take the chance of 
not having an instrument for tryouts, bring it 
along with you this fall. 

ORCHESTRA 

Orchestra members are admitted and placed 
by tryouts each fall. They gain valuable exper- 
ience in presenting two concerts of classical num- 
bers annually and accompanying "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 in- 
terested applied music students. Its purpose is to 
promote student and community interest in 
music. The aims are to raise the general academ- 
ic standard of the music department; to provide 
a goal for all students interested in music; to 
promote thoroughly trained musicianship; and to 
further the understanding of all types of music.

Major Productions 

The last two years have seen great develop- 
ments in the drama department for the first 
time since the Chapel fire in 1947. Now all the 
major plays are again presented on the campus 
by means of a stage constructed so that it can 
be erected in the Alumni Gymnasium for the 
plays and taken down quickly after the produc- 
tions. 

Three outstanding types of plays were given 
last year. In the fall, Thornton Wilder's "Our 
Town" was presented. Thomas Milne's "Mr. Pirn 
Passes By" was presented in March, and Wil- 
liam Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" 
was the Commencement play. 

Playhouse 

Under the direction of the head of the drama 
department the Maryville College Playhouse was 
started in the fall of 1949. In addition to those 
who are qualified as Players, there are many 
Apprentices working toward the position of 
Player. 

—69— 



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 "The Man Who Died 
at Twelve O'Clock," "Aria da Capo," "Everyman," 
and "The Net Which They Hid." 

Debate 

Maryville College has been noted for outstand- 
ing debate teams. Last year Maryville's varsity 
debaters won second in women's debate at Ten- 
nessee State Tournament; a rating of good at 
the Pi Kappa Delta National Tournament; and 
third place in women's debate at South Atlantic 
Tournament. 

Along with debating goes oratory, extempore, 
after-dinner, and other individual speaking con- 
tests. Maryville was awarded two individual first 
place trophies at the Pi Kappa Delta National 
Tournament and a rating of good in oratory. 

Freshmen are given an opportunity to parti- 
cipate in the speech program, for there is a 
freshman debate team in addition to the varsity 
squad. 

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. 



—70— 




Every boy has, at one time or another, dream- 
ed of being a star in some sport. At Maryville 
there is a fine chance of making that dream a 
reality. Maryville is very active in intercollegiate 
sports and also maintains a well organized intra- 
mural sports program for those who wish to 
participate. For the girls, there is a well-develop- 
ed point system whereby they may earn a sweater 
with an "M" or an "MC" monogram. No one is 
permitted to wear other school sweaters at Mary- 
ville. 

Maryville does not buy her athletes. Those 
who participate in inter-collegiate sports earn 
their p,1aces on the teams by physical prowess 
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, secretary, 
three boys, two girls, and two faculty represen- 
tatives are elected to the Executive Board which 
acts for the Association. The Director of Athletics 
and the chairman of the faculty Athletic Com- 
mittee are ex-officio members of the Board. This 

—7] — 



Board elects managers of athletic teams, makes 
awards to members and managers of men's 
teams, to members of Women's Varsity, and to 
the cheerleaders. 

INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS 

Maryvllle 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 tennis team compiled an excel- 
lent record, winning all intercollegiate matches 
but one. The cross-country team came through 
the season with a good record. 

In major sports Maryville holds her own with 
colleges of the same size. She has good records in 
baseball, basketball, football, and track. 

Let's all support our teams enthusiastically, 
win or lose, because school spirit is part of Mary- 
ville's athletic program, too. 

WOMEN'S VARSITY 

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

Girls participating in this program must 
swim twice a month, obey the health rules, and 
exercise 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, ten- 
nis, hiking, or aerial darts can entitle a girl to ihe 
maximum of 50 points. Additional points are 
awarded for sportsmanship, perfect attendance, 
and captain or manager of a team. 



-72- 



INTRAMURALS 

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



^ 



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 Maryville!

Baldwin Beach — the hedged-in terrain on the 
north side of Baldwin Hall where MaryvlUe beau- 
ties bask in the Tennessee sun. Proper clothing 
for going to and from consists of raincoat, or 
shorts and shirt, or the equivalent, over your 
sunning outfit. 

Bell — that object hung in Anderson tower which 
calls us to classes and to meals, and which, when 
rung following a football game, indicates a Scot- 
ty victory. 

Blue Book — a small eight-page notebook required 
by many teachers for taking examinations; also 
used to refer to the kind of test which requires 
a blue-book. 

Circle Drive — the circular pavement surrounding 
the main campus, on which pleasant walking may 
be enjoyed until 7:15 each week night and 7 on 
Sundays. 

Comps — short for Comprehensive Examinations, 
an excruciating ordeal through which Seniors 
must go at the end of their College stay. 
Cram — co.lloquial verb meaning to attempt to 
assimilate some knowledge of a course just prior 
to an exam; is not a recommended method. 
Crip-Course — an extinct term; the name given to 
a course in which, supposedly, a D student can 
made an A without even buying a textbook. 
(Everybody may call it that just before YOU 
take it.) 
Cut — what you take when you're absent from a 



class on your own responsibility; check your 
allowances and keep your own record elsewhere 
in this book. 

Honor Roll — ^what you're on if your average for 
the preceding semester was B or better; that list 
which raises your reputation and the number of 
cuts you're allowed as well. 

Light Cut — tapplied to the women's dorms when 
the young ladies keep their lights on after 11 p.m. 
Loitering — taken from the S'tudent Council root; 
meaning you'd better keep moving on your way 
to and from Town Night and other College doin's. 
Loop — comes in a variety of sizes — five miles for 
hikers, seven miles for intrepid hikers, and in the 
large economy size (twelve miles) for exercise 
faddists. 

Moonshined — state which means that you and the 
boyfriend (or girlfriend, as the case may be) 
have been somewhere or have been doing some- 
thing that isn't on the "approved list" and your 
relationship to each other and to those of the 
opposite sex is temporarily affected. It's a state 
you'll want to avoid at all cost, and conduct at 
all times becoming a lady or gentleman is a good 
insurance policy against this. 
Quiz — short examination, generally of the "pop" 
variety, guaranteed to catch you by surprise — 
and at a loss, if you're not parallel with the class 
schedule. 

Ralph — the "legendary figure" on campus who 
may appear at any time from behind the nearest 
shrub and catch you off guard; our beloved Night 
Watchman; the little man who's always there. 
Student Help — includes practically aLl students. 
Applied to those who type, wait tables, staff the 
Library, assist teachers, and wag mail-bags, to 
name only a few of the many student-filled jobs 
at Maryville. The tenth of the month is pay day, 
as you'll soon be able to tell from the bright 
faces at that time. 

Town Girls' Room — located on the second floor of 
Thaw for the convenience of women students who 
live in town; a place where they may leave their 
books and rest during their free periods.
