The eminent educator Dr. William Lyon Phelps once 
said that it is more important to have a knowledge of 
the Bible without a college education than it is to have 
a college education without a knowledge of the Bible. 

At Maryville College neither is sacrificed. Here the 
student is offered both a college education and a know- 
ledge of the Bible. 

It_is my privilege to extend to you students this my 
first welcome. It is a privilege to have you in the student 
body, and Mrs. Copeland and I are looking forward to 
knowing you personally. 

May the years ahead be rewarding to you, to your 
family, to Maryville College, and to higher education 
under church leadership. 

Sincerely yours, 

Joseph J. Copeland

Where Chilhowee's lofty mountains 
Pierce the southern blue, 

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


Orange, Garnet, float forever, 

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

Hail to Maryville! 

As thy hilltop crowned with cedars 

Ever green appears, 
So thy memory fresh shall linger 

Through life's smiles and tears. 

Lift the chorus, wake the echoes, 

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

Loud her praises sing! 


"On Highlanders" 
(Words and Music by Charles Huffman, '49) 

On, Highlanders, down the field, 

Rolling up a high score! 
Tear into the end zone, 

Smash on through that line, 

Send a rousing cheer on high, 
And our boys will shine, 

Come on and fight, fight, fight! 
Come on and fight, fight, fight! 

For dear old Maryville! 



The BELL atop Anderson Hall is a symbol of tradition 
at Maryville. All colleges have traditions, and we here 
are not lacking in ours. As you become a part of Mary- 
ville, these traditions will become a part of you which 
you will cherish. Our traditions at Maryville are tradi- 
tions of Activities, Meetings, and Fellowship. 

Your first memories will be those of LINES — reg- 
istration, Treasurer's Office, Bookstore, but the nicest 
line is the FACULTY RECEPTION LINE. This is the 
official greeting of all the faculty for all the students 
and is a must for freshmen. Don your best formal, your 
firmest handshake, your most sincere smile, and enjoy 

The first few weeks of school are very busy, but also 
very exciting and happy. We try to settle down to the 
business of studying amidst the excitement of RUSH 
WEEK. This is the time when the four societies on 
campus, Theta Epsilon and Chi Beta for the women 
and Alpha Sigma and Kappa Phi for the men, carry on 
competition to try to win prospective members to their 
societies. The brother-sister societies have a week in 
which to do this. Such social events as fashion shows, 
teas, talent shows, band concerts, and square dances are 
held during RUSH WEEK. The brother-sister societies 
climax their RUSH period with an original production. 
The attire for the occasion is usually formal, and the 
girls are escorted by the men. After the RUSH WEEK is 
over, the students then decide which societies they wish 
to join. This is a hard decision, but whichever one is 
chosen deserves your wholehearted support. 

THE STUDENT CENTER, with the Y-STORE, is the 
place to stop for a quick coke, sandwich, or ice cream 
cone. Also, a game of ping-pong or bridge is sure to 

be in progress most anytime during the day. Stop in 
and enjoy the friendly atmosphere with other students. 

in all its dignity. The morning chapel service, gay 
dorm decorations, and HOMECOMING PARADE make 
this a day to remember. The lovely senior girl who 
reigns as Homecoming Queen over the football game 
will have this as one of the happiest memories of her 
college career. 

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 semester and is held each Thanks- 
giving eve in the Alumni Gym. Sponsored by the Y's, 
every effort is made to present the best talent in this 
musical production. The court of the King and Queen 
is made up of attendants from each of the four classes. 
elected by the student body. This, too, is kept top 
secret until BARNWARMING night. 

The coming of the Christmas Season brings with it 
anticipation of the coming vacation. However, there are 
many activities which are a part of the season that are 
long remembered. The presentation of Handel's MES- 
SIAH by the Vesper Choir, the combined glee clubs, 
and all others who are interested in singing, with the 
accompaniment by the College orchestra, is very in- 
spiring, and usually starts the Christmas season officially 
at Maryville. CHRISTMAS READINGS are given by 
various members of the faculty and the student body on 
the Sunday night of MESSIAH. The last Sunday night 
before vacation CHRISTMAS VESPERS are held in the 
chapel, with all the choirs participating. 

WARMTH and FRIENDLINESS are two of the most 
important traditions at Maryville. The friendly "hi" 
and sincere smiles of all you meet are a vital part of 


the whole atmosphere. Be a part of this spirit — you 
will find friends are easily made. 

Spring is officially here when college students, town 
people, and children make their way to the Amphi- 
theater in the College Woods for the annual MAY DAY 
PAGEANT. Produced by the Women's Physical Edu- 
cation Department, this colorful occasion is reigned 
over by the May Day Court. The Queen is chosen from 
the Senior Class and her attendants from the other 
four classes. 

We began our traditions telling you about the first 
days on the Hill. As a climax comes COMMENCE- 
MENT with its dignified services and many mixed 
emotions. One of the lovely traditions is the DAISY 
CHAIN composed of fourteen girls from the Junior 
Class, who form the chain through which the gradua- 
tion procession passes. As seniors leave the campus 
many find that the strength, knowledge, and insight 
they have developed here is good preparation for worth- 
while service in their chosen field. 

Maryville emphasizes the building of the mind, body, 
and spirit. In her organizations she develops personality 
and friendship, as students work and play together. 
In her classes and studies she emphasizes the im- 
portance of intellectual curiosity and the acquiring of 
knowledge. And in her RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS 
and services spiritual growth is nurtured and one is 
inspired to loftier goals. Through each of these areas 
there is a common purpose which is a strong unifying 
factor in the campus life. It is the spiritual emphasis 
on our campus that is the impetus to the friendliness 
and desire to help that are so prevalent among our 
students. This is an introduction to the religious pro- 
gram that Maryville offers. These are some of the high- 
lights of the opportunities and vital programs that are 
planned for the students to participate in, to share, 
and to enjoy. 


TIME OUT, is the all-campus prayer meeting held 
each Thursday night at 9:30 in the Little Chapel. These 
meetings, which are led by the students, provide an 
opportunity to share in fellowship and spiritual growth. 

The LITTLE CHAPEL located in the Samuel Tyndale 
Wilson Chapel is open at all times for private and 
small-group devotions. 

Sunday is a quiet, peaceful day for the students as 
they return from Sunday School and Church. In the 
afternoon the Y's give an inspiring program and in the 
evening VESPERS, presided over by our college Chaplain, 
provides an opportunity for worship and praise as we 
hear a message and listen to our own Vesper Choir. Sun- 
day is the day that starts our week off with freshness 
and vigor. 

Sometime during the year, a chapel service is set 
aside for the FRED HOPE FUND. This fund was es- 
tablished as a tribute to the memory of one of Mary- 
ville's outstanding graduates, Fred Hope, who spent his 
life as a missionary in Africa. Today this fund enables 
Maryville students to have a share in some outstanding 
foreign missionary service. This past year the fund was 
given over to the Momjepom Mission Center in Africa. 

Early in our second semester we have an inspiring 
week of religious emphasis, FEBRUARY MEETINGS. 
The team of leaders, a speaker, a pianist, and a song 
leader, conduct the services morning and evening for 
a period of ten days. The strong student interest in these 
messages usually results in further group discussion after 
the regular services and in many private conferences with 
the leaders. Over the years students and faculty have 
found renewed strength and spiritual re-awakening in 
these February Meetings, which are one of the oldest 
and strongest of our Maryville traditions. 


Nothing is more beautiful than seeing the sun's 
first rays burst over the Smokies as the Vesper Choir 
sings, "Alleluia, Christ is Risen." EASTER SUNRISE 
SERVICE on Easter morning is an inspiring and enrich- 
ing experience. 

In addition to the many groups on campus which 
give opportunity for spiritual growth there is MORN- 
ING WATCH for your own private devotions. These 
quiet moments mean much to the students who take 
advantage of them. We hope you may feel the true 
spirit of Maryville College and take part in the many 
opportunities offered for friendship and personal de- 

ARTISTS SERIES brings to the campus each year 
?cD S | t cc dlng muslcal and dramatic artists. LECTURE 
SERIES gives the opportunity to hear noted scholars 
and authorities ir, many fields. 

Dcln C cA5 )r,n9, near the end of the scho °l V ear . the Y's 
RETREAT to a beautiful lake in the mountains for the 
week-end. This is a time not only of spiritual fellow- 
ship, but of spiritual evaluation of the programs and 
individual growth of the year. The Retreat also gives 
an opportunity to plan a more pertinent and vital pro- 
gram for the following year. A new theme or purpose 
for the following year is selected by the cabinet. The 
Y s are important organizations on the campus, and their 
spiritual influence is shown by the active membership 
and wide interest that is shown as the students partici - 
pate in the programs together. 



I. Class Attendance 

The system for regulating attendance at Maryville 
College is based on the principle that consistent atten 
dance is essential to the best class achievement and that 
excessive absence, regardless of the reason, represents 
real academic loss. Absence beyond the equivalent of 
a week's absence in a semester in any class is considered 
excessive. Each student is expected to keep an accurate 
record of his absences with the dormitory Housemother 
or at home, as the case may be. 

II. Chapel, Church, and Church School Attendance 

Spiritual growth at Maryville College is believed to be 
as important as scholastic achievement. For this reason, 
each student is required to attend Sunday school, church, 
and chapel regularly. It is hoped that services will serve 
as a foundation for private, individual prayer, and 
meditation. To cover necessary absences due to illness 
or other emergency, the student is allowed the equivalent 
of a week's absence in each class and chapel, and of 3 
week's absence in church school and church combined. 
each semester. 

III. Penalties and Appeal 

There is no provision for "free cuts." Should a student 
exceed the allowance for any class, chapel, or church 
school and church, he is penalized by additional credit 
required for graduation, at the rate of 1 12 semester 
hour for each absence.* 

Should a student be absent from classes on the two 
days preceding or the two days following a scheduled 
holiday, vacation, or recess, he is penalized by additional 
credit required for graduation, at the rate of 1 |2 semester 
hour for each absence on those days. This applies to all 
students, including those on the Honor Roll.* 


Should a student exceed the allowance in any class or 
in chapel or church school and church, by an additional 
week s absence, or should he accumulate altogether 8 
excess absences, he is warned by the Personnel Office 
in writmg, and a copy is sent to the parents. 

Should a student accumulate as many as 16 excess 
absences in a semester without valid reason, he is sus- 
pended from college immediately. 

Absences for any cause totaling one fourth of the class 
meetings prevent a grade above "D" in the course- if 
absences total half of the class meetings, "F" is given. 

If for some unusual reason, such as a serious accident 
or prolonged illness, a student is compelled to exceed the 
absence allowances in any semester, he may present at 
the Personnel Office before the end of the semester 
a written appeal, which will be considered by a faculty 
committee after the close of the semester. To the extent 
that such an appeal presents clear evidence that 
ail absences were for valid reasons, the committee may 
at ,ts discretion modify the application of absence penal- 
ties. Holiday penalties may also be appealed for valid 

* Academic standing, as officially computed by the 
Personnel Office, is based on total hours attempted, 
betore application of absence penalties. 

IV. Authorized College Activities 

Since authorized college activities (athletic, forensic 
musical, etc.) within reasonable limits represent educa- 
tional values in terms of individual development and 
disciplines, class absences due to such activities count 
only halt. 

V. Dean's List 

Students on the Honor Roll (standing of 3.25 the 
previous semester) are not bound by the class allow- 


ances, but a record of their absences is kept as for other 
students, and they must take all announced tests. Such 
students have the same requirements as others for 
chapel, church school and church, and are subject to the 
same penalties for days preceding and following holidays, 
as well as the aforementioned penalties for absences in 
excess of 1 14 and 1 12 the scheduled class meetings. 

VI. Make-up Tests 

An announced test may be made up only by permis- 
sion of the Personnel Office to the teacher concerned 
upon presentation by the student of evidence that the 
absence was unavoidable. In case of doubt, the Per- 
sonnel Office should be consulted before the absence. It 
is understood that in view of the delay and irregularity 
involved, a make-up test is to be more extensive and 
thorough than the one missed. 

1. General College Standards 

A. Automobiles 

1 . No out-of-town student may have an automo- 
bile or other motor vehicle while at Maryville 
College except by special permission given only 
in unusual cases. This permission is required 
whether or not parking space on the campus is 
desired; request must be made in writing through 
the Personnel Office before the car is brought. 

2. Students living in Maryville who. regularly use 
cars at the College must secure permit tags each 
year from the Treasurer's Office. Parking spaces 
will then be assigned to those who park regulariy 
on the campus. (Faculty members also secure 
permits and parking assignments) . 

3. Women students are not permitted to ride in

from the Dean of Women. Permission should also

2. Pool-rooms and places selling beer or other alco-

These are given by the Executive Council of the 
Faculty for violation of College Regulations.

All seven of your tablemates will appreciate your 
appearing well-goomed at meals, especially dinner. 
For Sunday dinner, both men and women are expected 
to wear their "Sunday best." 

Try to make conversation table-wide, but remember 
there are tables all around you, and it is annoying to 
them to have to listen to your conversation. After ali, 
loud and boisterous talking is bad manners anywhere. 
And speaking of manners, be sure to take them along 
when you go to the Dining Hall. A polite "please" or 
"thank you" isn't too heavy a burden for anyone to 

Your waitress will appreciate your thoughtfulness 
in getting to and from meals on time, since she has 
classes and obligations too.

While Maryville College puts its major emphasis 
naturally enough, on scholastic standing, you'll want 
to be active in a few extra-curricular fields too. We 
warn you — you'll be tempted to join all the fascinat- 
ing clubs and organizations the campus boasts. But 
book learning comes first; better still, find a happy 
balance between grades and activities. You'll find 
enough of both to satisfy you; and whiie our hospital 
is cool and comfortable, it isn't run as a rest home for 
exhausted activity hounds. 

We hope you'll find activities that will make the 
most of your time and interests. Efforts and enthusiasm 
wear better and are more appreciated when they are 
concentrated. If you budget your time wisely, you'll 
have not only good grades but also an important piace 
in campus life.

Recitals which anyone may attend are given from time 
to time by music students and faculty. 

College Choir 

The College Choir provides good training and gen- 
uine pleasure for those who are interested in singing. 
It is composed of about sixty members who must pass 
rigid tryouts before they are accepted. The group par- 


ticipates in the weekly vesper services and the daily 
chape' programs and presents special programs in Mary- 
ville and surrounding cities. The Choir has sung in 
many cities of the East, Midwest, and South. 

Ali-Girl Choir 

The sixty girls who compose this group are select- 
ed by tryouts each semester. They replace the Vesper 
Choir at the Sunday evening service a number of times 
a year. In the fall the Girl's Choir combines with the 
Men's Glee Club to present a sacred concert, and in 
the spring the combined groups present a program of 
secular music. 

Men's Glee Club 

This group consists of about forty men, but ad- 
ditional members may be admitted by tryouts each 
semester. The sacred concert in the fall and a secular 
program in the spring are the highlights of the year's 
activities for the c Glee Club. 


The students who enjoy playing a musical instru- 
ment are urged to try out for the College marching 
band. The band, numbering about fifty pieces, plays 
for all the heme football games and takes occasional 
out-of-town trips with the team. For freshmen and 
sophomores the marching practice takes the place of 
the physical education requirement. When football sea- 
son is over, the marching band reorganizes as a con- 
cert band, which gives an outdoor concert during the 
last few days before Commencement. Don't take the 
chance of not having an instrument for tryouts; bring 
it along with you this fall. 

As befits true "Highlanders," the band is uniformed 
in authentically styled kilts of imported Scotch wool. 
They make a striking appearance on parade and are 
the pride of the campus. 



Orchestra members are admitted and placed by try- 
outs each fall. They gain valuable experience in pre- 
senting two concerts of classical numbers annually and 
accompanying "Messiah." Their spring concert features 
an outstanding music student playing a well-known 

String Ensemble 

The String Ensemble is open to all string players in 
the orchestra. Various programs are given thoughout 
the year, both on and off campus. 



The Maryville College Playhouse has at its disposal 
one of the finest and best equipped theaters in this part 
of the country. Playhouse presents three major pro- 
ductions each year. Last year the plays were Noel 
Coward's Blythe Spirit, Shakespeare's Merry Wives of 
Windsor, and The Romancers by Edmund Rostand. 

Playhouse originated in the fall of 1949 and is open 
to all those who are interested in acting or in any of 
the technical aspects of production. Under a point 
system, apprentices work for the positions of Journey- 
men, Player, and Master Player. 


Of all our teams, we are probably most proud of 
our Debate Team. They are consistent winners through 
the years. Debating is an excellent extracurricular ac- 
tivity and is a great aid to the development of poise 
and self-confidence. It is especially valuable for those 
planning to enter the ministry or law professions. Debate 
is open to anyone who is interested and is operated on 


a class basis, college credit being given at the end of 
the second semester. Debaters compete in local, regional, 
and national tournaments. Those who reach the top 
ranks may be elected into the national honor society 
for debaters, Pi Kappa Delta. 


For those who are interested in writing or in working 
on the staff of publications there are many varied op- 
portunities here at Maryvifle. Through serving on these 
staffs valuable experience is gained. 

Highland Echo 

The Highland Echo is the college newspaper, usually 
published bi-weekly. Freshmen and other new students 
are wekomed and are urged to try out for the staff 
positions if they are interested. At the end of each 
college year staff promotions are made on the basis of 
writing, interest, and dependability. The Echo constitu- 
tion limits the number of staff members from each 
college class. The editor is elected by the staff and 
is usually a senior. Chief purpose and policy of the 
Echo is to present campus news as interestingly and as 
thoroughly as possible. The Echo also seeks to acquaint 
students with national and international problems of 
particular interest to them, thus helping our student 
body to identify with the total student generation. 


The Chiihowean is the annual yearbook, published 
under the supervision of the junior class. All organiza- 
tions, events, and activities of the year are viewed in 
picture and word. There are also individual pictures 
of the student body. 


Alumni Bulletin 

The Alumni Bulletin sends news of the College and 
alumni to former students of the College. It is published 
monthly 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 activi- 
ties are described within for the student's benefit. 


All men are encouraged to participate in the in- 
tramural program. The program consists of the major 
sports — touch football, basketball, softball, as well as all 
phases of minor sport activity, such as swimming, wrest- 
ling, tennis, golf, ping-pong, badminton, and volleyball. 

The men participating are striving also for individual 
honors in the monogram "M" given for point ac- 
cumulation for actual participation, officiating, or mang- 
ing a team in competition. Team honors are also dis- 
tributed in each sport. 

In the spring semester, the YMCA awards the 
sportsmanship trophy to the senior showing the best 
character in competition during that year. 

All classes actively engage in this program and com- 
petition is keen. This program offers a wholesome op- 
portunity for the student in the recreational phase of 
his college life. 


Maryville College has a well-rounded sports program 
suited to all men interested in playing intercollegiate 


athletics. The SCOTS participate in baseball, football, 
and basketball, as well as track, tennis, and wrestling. 

They take on colleges of similar size in football and 
basketball and universities and larger colleges in baseball 
and other sports. 

There are opportunities for all men to compete in 
these sports, as M.C. does not buy her athletes. Sup- 
port or try out for the team of your choice.
