Di:. Lloyd 

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. 

Cordially yours, 

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 

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! 

"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 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 
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. 

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 
procession 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. I 



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 

— 10— 

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, 
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 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 

week's ironing, 
— Never clean the tubs, basins, etc., after using 

— Take supplies from the medicine chest and 

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

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: 
Weekdays: Breakfast, 35c; Lunch 75c; Dinner 75c. 
Saturdays: Breakfast, 35c; Dinner 75c; Supper 75c. 
Sundays: Breakfast 35c; Dinner $1.00; Supper 40c. 

Your tablemates, all seven of them will ap- 
preciate you 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 
getting to and from meals on time. 

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

record of all absences. 

2. Excuses for illness or other emergencies

day School, and Church. No excuses will be ap- 
proved unless you do this.

College activities, such as scheduled trips for 
members of the debate squad, choir, band, ball 
teams, etc.

and one and one-half grade points will be de- 
ducted from the total credit.

sences in any one semester the student is imme- 
diately dismissed from College. 

Absences for any cause (allowed, excused,

^he absences are incurred, debar the student from 
receiving a grade higher than D in the course; 
or totaling 50%, debar from credit in the course.

effect as stated in the Student Council Town Night 

a. Monitors shall be on duty each night. 

1) Monitor duty will be voluntary to a 
certain extent, after whch it will 
arbitrarily be assigned from an alpha- 
betical list of senior women. 

2) It will be necessary to have only one 
monitor on duty each night if she has

a group of three girls. The assignment 
sheet will be posted several days 
beforehand so that the proper ar- 
rangements can be made. 

3) On nights when no girls sign out be- 
fore nine o'clock it will not be neces- 
sary for monitors to be on duty. If a 
group of girls decides to go out after

Ed Breitbac^ 

Welcome to Maryville and its Men's Organization: 

The M.S.O. is entering its fifth year of serv- 
ing and representing the interests of the men of 
Maryville. It has come a long way since its be- 
ginning. It has still further to go. 

One of the best ways to make yourself a 
part of Maryville is to join in this student organi- 
zation. You can do this in two ways. First select 
those men to this body who will represent you 
and your feelings. Then, get behind the repre- 
sentatives and give them your 100% support. 
That is not all — if these men are to represent 
you, they must know your gripes as well as your 
suggestions; tell them. With your help, they can 
make the organization more effective. 

We want you to work with us as we work 
for you. So, welcome to Maryville. See you 
around the campus! 

Ed Breitbach 
Chairman, M.S.O.

Coordinating Council for consideration and 
possible remedial action cases of students 
concerning whom questions have been raised 
as to their attitude, behavior, or general 
progress. It is understood that this procedure 
does not imply that such cases may not also 
be considered at the same time by the Execu- 
tive Council of the Faculty. The Coordinating 
Council in turn agrees to keep the College 
informed of cases of misconduct which it may 
from time to time have under consideration. 
Section 2. Suspension. It is understood that 
if a man is under consideration by the Col- 
lege for possible suspension during the col- 

— <S8— 

■ ii--. : lege year, for reason other than poor scholar- 
ship or excess absences, such a case will be 
referred to the Coordinating Council for con- 
sideration and recommendation before final 
action is taken. An exception to this proced- 
ure would be a case the nature of which in 
the judgment of the College required confi- 
dential handling; such a case would be dis- 
cussed by an officer of the College in confi- 
dence with the chairman of the Men's Stu- 
dent Organization but would not be referred 
to the Coordinating Council

d. If passed by a three-fourths (3/4) vote 
of the members of the Men's Student Or- 
ganization present, the amendment shall 
become effective.

Section 1. This constitution shall become ef- 
fective when approved by the Student Coun- 
cil, the Executive Council of the Faculty, and, 
in a ratifying vote, two-thirds (2/3) of the 
votes cast must be affirmative out of a total 
number of votes equal to two-fifths (2/5) of 
the members of the Men's Student Organiza- 


Section 2. This constitution shall be present- 
ed to the Men's Student Organization and to

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 
Provincial Conventions. 

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 

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 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. 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. 

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 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 
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 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. 

Writer's Workshop 

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. 

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 "Up 
in Central Park." 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 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- 
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 pro- 
grams or selected short movies. The club meets 
twice a month throughout both semesters and in- 
terest is the only prerequisite to membership. 

French Club 

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- 
casional socials. 

German Club 

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- 

Spanish Club 

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 

"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 
the College. 

Disc Club 

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 

Ccsmera 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' 

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. 

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 

Business Club 

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. 
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 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. 
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. 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. 


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. 


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- 

Experimental Theatre 

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 
the Hero. 


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- 
tional Tournament. 

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- 


I. Maryville College Intramural Championship 
ribbons are awarded to the winners of all team 
and individual sports. 

II. A metal (tin) cup is awarded to team winners 
of the leagues and to the winning team of the 
track meet. 

III. The Intramural Victory Medal (picture of 
winged victory plus an orange-and-garnet "M") is 
awarded for the accumulation of 500 points as 

A. League participation 50 points 

(per league) 

B. Refereeing 50 points 

(per league) 

C. The winner of individual sports 50 points 

(may enter 3 swimming events 
3 track events, and 3 field events) 

No varsity letterman is allowed to participate in a 

related Intramural sport.

Aziec Ruins — only legal smoking area on campus; 
located near "Big Steps". 

Baldwin Beach — the hedged-in terrain on the 
north side of Baldv/in Hall where Maryville 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 

Comps — short for Comprehensive Examinations, 
an excruciating ordeal through which Seniors 
must go at the end of their College stay. 
Cram — colloquial 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 
make 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. 
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 — applied to the women's dorms when 
the young ladies keep their lights on after 11 p.m. 
Loitering — taken from the Student 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 

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 

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 Girl's 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.
