GREETINGS FEOM OUE PEESIDENT
Welcome to the life and work of the 134th
year at Maryville College. One Hundred and
thrity-three years ago this next October, students
enrolled for the first year. There were only five
of them and classes v/ere held in the manse of
Dr. Isaac Anderson, who was the only teacher.
For the 134th year the numbers, facilities, and
faculty will be very different; just as life in our
day differs vastly from life in their day.
But the requirements for a successful college
year are essentially the same — serious purpose,
effort, honesty, friendliness, faith. That new and
old students alike may major in these subjects
this year is my hope and prayer.
Ralph Waldo Lloyd
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
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!
(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 I
There are some things about Maryville which
are very special to all 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, ot the long line of
hand-shakers at the FACULTY RECEPTION. For
this line you girls will v/ant to wear your pretti-
est 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 brother-and-sister societies conduct
intensive membership drives which are climaxed
by the formal program on Saturday night. It
doesn't matter so much which society you choose,
but be sure to choose one and pledge your whole-
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 at 10:25 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 place 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 Maryville'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. To-
day, this fund enables Maryville College students
and faculty to have a part in some outstanding
and needy mission work in the foreign 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. Sponsored
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 feature.
King and Queen, chosen from the senior class,
and attendants from each of the four classes are
elected by the student body. But, like the theme,
the court is kept a top secret until Barnwarming
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'll 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.
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 more to spiritual thoughts during
FEBRUARY MEETINGS. It v/ill be to your advant-
age to attend these religious services each morn-
ing and evening to gain renewed spiritual 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 always 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
Ampitheatre to the EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE.
Each spring the old and new Y Cabinets
have their annual Y RETREAT. Held in a pictur-
esque mountain setting, the retreat affords time
for these groups to plan the activities for the
coming year in Y.
The ALL-Girl Choir and Men's Glee Club
combine every spring to give a musical program.
Last year the group presented the delightful Gil-
bert and Sullivan operetta, "PIRATES OF PEN-
Our lovely ampi-theatre in the College
Woods becomes such varied scenes as the Em-
erald City of Oz, Alice's Wonderland, or a South-
ern plantation with Uncle Remus for the annual
MAY DAY PAGEANT. Being May Queen is a
cherished honor for some senior girl. Her attend-
ants 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-
ercises 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
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. I
THE ABC'S OF GOOD DORMITORY LIFE
One of the biggest adjustments you'll have
to make at college is that of living with a dorm
full of people. It will 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 an-
other person or 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 talking, door-slamming, and hall-yell-
ing, and when they observe closed study hours
and your "busy 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 tor the yearly
Open House to clean up your room.
Guests and visitors often come at the most
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
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,
— Monopolize the telephone.
— Sweep dirt into the halls and leave it there,
— Wash your clothes in the bathrooms during the
— Barge into your friends' rooms during study
hours and waste their time and yours as well,
— Get up earlier than most people in the morning
and make a general disturbance,
— Use the ironing boards on the floors to do your
— Never clean the tubs, basins, etc., after using
— Take supplies from the medicine chest and
leave them in your room.
— Borrow extensively from everybody.

member loud and boisterous talking is in poor

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

HOW WE SPEND OUR FREE TIME
College is the place to learn selection and
discrimination. 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 your-
self 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.
Then, 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. Re-
member 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 substi-
tute one club for another.
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
Thela Alpha Phi
Talented dramatic students may, upon meet-
ing certain requirements for membership, be ini-
tated into the Tennessee Delta Chaper of the na-
tional dramatic fraternity. Theta Alpha Phi. Mem-
bers of this organization take a leading part in
dramatic activities on the campus; however, op-
portunity is given to all sudents to try out for
the various plays given throughout the year.
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 requirements are
similar to those of Phi Beta Kappa. Ten percent
of the graduating class may be admitted pro-
vided the members have a grade point ratio of
6.5, or somewhat more than a B average.
Pi Gamma sponsored by the 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
between 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 invited
to spend the night in the dorm. No girl should go
through college without such an experience.
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. Regular meetings are held each
Sunday night after Vespers, usually in Bartlett
Hall. The weekly programs present interesting as-
pects of the work being done on both the foreign
and home mission fields.
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 Na-
ional Missions, the Board of Christian Education,
Maryville College and New Providence Presby-
terian Church. Limited college credit is given to
Parish Project students who perform such duties
as Church School teaching and administration,
teaching weekday Bible classes in selected
groups of public schools, and supervising young
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 Christian service. In addition to its
regular meetings twice a month the Association
shares in planning with the other religious or-
ganizations, YM, YW, and Student Vols, the
campus prayer meetings 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.
Literary interest and achievement are the
basis for membershp in Writer's Workshop. Mem-
bers are elected from the junior and senior class-
es. 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 desirous
of coordinating fine arts activities. Its purpose is
to provide occasional fine arts programs of gen-
eral interest to faculty and students. It does not
function as a club.
Varied activities and friendships highlight the
program of Bainonian Society. The second 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 "Gypsy Life." Weekly meetings through the
year are held in Bainonian Hall.
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 "Up
in Central Park." Meetings are held each week
in Theta Hall.
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 an-
nual 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.
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 program.
Athenian joins Bainonian, its sister society, in its
annual Rush Week program and holds weekly
meetings in Bartlett Hall.
Christian Education Club
Maryville's newest campus organzation —
the Christian Education Club — was formed last
spring for the purpose of giving an opportunity
to prospective Directors of Christian Education
and church workers to become familiar with
various skills needed in the field. This is done
through a program of lectures and laboratory
periods. The club is open to all those interested.
International 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 Inter-
national 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, discussion groups,
movies, and well-informed speakers at its semi-
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 pro-
grams or selected short movies. The club meets
twice a month throughout both semesters and in-
terest is the only prerequisite to membership.
The French Club is composed of thirty mem-
bers who are taking French and who qualify for
membership by scholarship and interest. This
club features semi-monthly programs of French
songs, games, movies, and plays, and holds oc-
All College students who are interested in
German culture, regardless of whether or not they
are German students are eligible for membership
in the German Club. Regular meetings are held
twice a month to stimulate interest and arouse
participation in different phases of German cul-
The limited active membership of thirty plus
all native Spanish speaking students on the
campus are elected from applicants who are in-
terested in the activities of the Spanish Club. Be-
side the semi-monthly evening meetings at which
are presented programs of language, customs, cul-
ture, music, dance, and use of audio-visual equip-
ment in the language laboratory, there are an
outdoor picnic and a Christmas party featuring
the Spanish pinata. All Freshmen are invited to
visit the club when they arrive on the campus.
"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 in what is known as Women's Varsity. In
addition to ahletic acivities two hours a week,
the members meet monthly for business discus-
sions and enjoy 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 three
years ago after a lapse of a decade or so. Mem-
beship 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 interests of
Disc Club was organized in 1936 to encourage
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
are presented twice monthly after the evening
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'
Futures Teachers of America
Jasper Converse Barnes Chapter of the Future
Teachers of America was organized in the spring
of 1949. All students planning to teach are eli-
gble for membership in this club which is affili-
ated with the National Education Association.
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
The Business Club was formed two years
ago for the purpose of promotng a better under-
standing of sound business practices and to give
its members a wider acquaintance with the vari-
ous fields of business and the opportunities and
possibilities that they offer. This is done through
semi-monthly meetings at which different busi-
ness leaders talk to the group and films on vari-
ous phases of business are shown. Although
membership is limited to majors in business ad-
ministration and economics, its meetings are open
to anyone interested in the field of business.
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.
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 on College affairs and
includes as well a bit of the world situaton.
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 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.
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. Col-
lege rules, customs, and activities ore described
within for the student's benefit.
If you have any musical ability whatsoever,
be it singing, blowing a tuba, or playing a violin,
there's ample opporunity 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 music students and faculty.
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 tryouts before they are ac-
cepted. The group participates in the weekly Ves-
per services and the daily chapel programs as
well as presenting special programs in Maryville
and surrounding cities. The choir has sung in
many cities of the East, Midwest and South.
The sixty girls who compose this group are
selected by tryouts each semester. They replace
the Vesper Choir at the Sunday evening service
a number of times a year. In the fall the Girls'
Choir combines with the Men's Glee Club to pre-
sent a sacred concert, and in the spring the com-
bined groups present a program of secular music.
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
a secular program in the spring are the high-
lights of the years activities for the glee club.
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 fooball 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 members are admitted and placed
by tryouts each fall. They gain valuable experi-
eince 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 students
who either are music majors or are taking applied
music. Its purpose is to promote student and com-
munity interest in music. The aims are to raise the
general academic standing of those enrolled in
music; to provide a goal for all students interested
in music; to promote thoroughly trained musician-
ship; and to further the understanding of all
types of music. A general average of B for the
last two semesters is required for membership.
The Maryville College Playhouse was origi-
nated in the fall of 1949. In addition to those who
are qualified as Players, there are many Ap-
prentices working toward the position of Player.
Two outstanding student plays were presented
last year: in the fall, Samuel Spewacks's Two Blind
Mice and at Commencement, Shakespeare's Mac-
beth. In addition, faculty members gave a very
popular presentation of Joseph Kesselring's Ar-
senic and Old Lace near the end of the fall semes-
Besides the major plays the Experimental
Theatre gives several one-act plays during the
year in Bartlett Auditorium. Those given last year
were Charles George's When Shakespeare's La-
dies Meet, Alice Gorstenberg's Overtones, Edna
St. Vincent Milay's Two Slatterns and a King,
Tchekoff's Marriage Proposal and Hilburn's Enter
Through the years Maryville College has had
an outstanding record in debate and other speech
events. Last year our teams performed creditably
in the Tennessee State Tournament, the South
Atlantic Tournament, and the Pi Kappa Delta Na-
Freshmen are given an opportunity to parti-
cipate in the speech program, for there is a fresh-
man 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.
Every boy has at one time or another dreamed
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 v\rell organized intramural
sports program for those who wish to participate.
For the girls there is a well-developed point sys-
tem whereby they may earn a sweater with an
"M" or an "MC" monogram. No one is permitted
to wear other school letters at Maryville.
Maryville does not buy her athletes. Those
who participate in inter-collegiate sports earn
their places on the teams by physical prowess
and acceptable scholarship.
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 representatives
are elected to the Executive Board which acts for
the Association. The Director of Athletics and the
chairman of the faculty Athletic Committee are
ex-officio members of the Board. This Board elects
managers of athletic teams, makes awards to mem-
bers and managers of men's teams, to members
of Women's Varsity, and to the cheerleaders.
Maryville is known for her strength in minor
sports. She competes with the best colleges and
universities in the field. In past years Maryville
has placed high in wrestling in the Southeastern
AAU Tournament. The tennis team compiled an
excellent record, winning all intercollegiate match-
es but four. 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. Through the years she
has had good records in baseball, basketball, foot-
ball, and track.
Let's all support our teams enthusiastically,
win or lose, because school spirit is part of Mary-
ville's athletic program, too.
As most colleges, Maryville no longer offers
a woman's intercollegiate program. Instead there
has been substituted Woman's Varsity. Participa-
tion in various sports qualifies a girl for a specific
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 be-
come 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,
tennis, hiking or aerial darts can entitle a girl to
the maximum award 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 intra-
mural program which develops good character as
well as physical fitness. The fellows participate
in touch football, soccer, volleyball, basketball,
swimming, wrestling, track and softball. This pro-
gram includes two hours a week of regular physi-
cal education required of freshmen, while sopho-
mores may either attend class or participate in
intramurals. Although not required of juniors and
seniors, many upper classmen take active part
in the fun and recreation which these sports pro-
