It is with respectful admiration that we
dedicate this, the tvventy- fourth volume of
the "M" Book, to those Maryville men and
women who have gone out into all fields, in
all parts of the world, and there have be-
come honorable leaders and worthy repre-
sentatives of their Alma Mater and her
It is primarily in an effort to help the
first-year men and women to become ac-
quainted with the spirit, customs, and
ideals of Maryville that this little book
has been prepared.
If it enables the new student to catch
a vision, as nearly as is possible from the
printed page, of the religious, social, ath-
letic, and scholastic phases of life at Mary-
ville; if it helps to orient him to his new
surroundings, if it gives him an idea of
the atmosphere of pleasantness and con-
genality that pervades the institution —
yet serves as a reminder that college is a
place where things are accomplished with
work, it will have served its purpose.
In addition, it is designed to furnish in
accurate and convenient form certain bits
of information and advice that will be useful
to every student possessing a copy.

10 MARYVILLE COLLEGE
Maryville has grown from a class of
five students who gathered about Dr. Isaac
Anderson in 1819, to the foremost college
in Tennessee, having an enrollment last year
of 803 students from 42 different states
and countries. Its growth has been phe-
nomenal and the romance of its growth
from a little log cabin to a completely
equipped modern, up to date college has
been chronicled by Dr. Wilson in his
"Century of Maryville College" which you
may read in the library.
Grounds, comprising 2 70 acres of the
most beautiful scenery in East Tennessee,
on which rest 19 buildings; and an en-
dowment of $2,253,000.00 do not form a
complete basis upon which to judge the
college. Numbered among its alumni are
men who have distinguished themselves in
every type of unselfish service. Familiarize
yourself with Maryville's entire history.
You are a Maryvillian — a student in one
of the finest colleges in the South.
The only failure a man ought to fear is
failure in cleaving to the purpose he sees to
'M" HANDBOOK 11
Maryville, the county seat of Blount
County, Tennessee, is a pleasant and thriv-
ing community, numbering, together with
the twin corporation of Alcoa, more than
ten thousand inhabitants. It is widely
known as "the town of schools and
churches." It is located sixteen miles south
of Knoxville, on the Knoxville and Augusta
division of the Southern Railway, and on
the paved highway No. 33, leading out from
Knoxville to the south and the new Smoky
Mountain National Park. Maryville may
be reached from Knoxville by Southern
Railway trains twice daily, and by busses
leaving from the bus terminal station at
State and Union Streets every forty-five
minutes throughout the day.
The town lies on the hills, one thousand
feet above sea level, and enjoys the life-giv-
ing breezes from the Chilhowees and the
Smokies, a few miles away. Young people
from the North and other sections are
greatly benefited in health by their resi-
dence at Maryville.

PRESIDENT WILSON'S COUNSEL
The wisest student is the one who has
these two resolves at heart, and who con-
sistently seeks to carry them into effect:
( 1 ) the resolve to secure for himself the
very best possible development through the
agency of college life and curriculum; and
(2) the resolve to contribute as much help-
fulness and service to the institution and
fellow-students as may be possible while in
college. By such a policy, the college,
the student himself, and his fellow-students
will profit greatly.
Allow me, as the oldest student now on
the roll, to recommend very heartily to all
students, new and old, the adoption and
execution of this worthy policy. And I
especially commend to you your alliance
with the Christian Associations in their en-
deavors to serve the College, the student
body, and the kingdom of heaven through
their year's work. For fifty-two years the
Y. M. C. A. and for forty-five years the
Y. W. C. A. have been rendering very im-
portant service in many directions. They
need and will appreciate your cooperation.
Kindly give it to them.

THE OFFER OF THE COLLEGE
To be at home in all lands and ages; to
count nature a familiar acquaintance and
art an intimate friend; to gain a standard
for the appreciation of other men's work
and the criticism of your own; to carry
in" your pocket the keys of the world's
library and feel its resources behind you in
whatever task you undertake; to make hosts
of friends among the men of your own age
who are to be leaders in all walks of" life;
to lose yourself in generous enthusiasms
and cooperate with others for common ends;
to learn manners from students who are
gentlemen and form character under pro-
fessors who are Christians — this is the
offer of the college for the best four years
of your life.

A WORD TO FRESHMEN
Every freshman that steps on a college
campus is brim full of dreams and expec-
tations. There is a feeling of elation at
the neA' independence; perhaps he has cer-
tain definite ideas of the things he will do
with this independence. Every collegiate
is covered with the glow of the promise
which clings to what is not clearly known,
but has been planned and hoped for and
speculated about. How will it be different
from high school? Will he make that
team? What are college "activities" like
and how hard is it to get into them?
Courses of study: harder than in high
school? — more interesting? New friends:
the right kind? College friendships be-
t een boys and girls: the correct collegiate
attitude to take toward them? — dates —
Probably few analyze the situation in
detail, but all know that it is momentous.
Four years of freedom in a fascinating
place. The student is temporarily un-
hampered by the responsibilities that will
soon overtake him, family hearth, business
desk, political office, and others. He is
free from many of the prejudices of his
elders which will settle upon him all too
soon. His is an ideal opportunity to view
the past and contemporary life of his coun-
try and the world with a critical but
opened attitude and acquire the facts and
habits with which to practice the fine art
The new student will encounter many
difficulties on the campus, both from
the college itself and from the student
body. Let us examine some of them.
18 MARYVILLE COLLEGE
There is a false assumption that one
must confine his friendships exclusively to
his own group, or gang and that he must
have such a group. If one does this he is
cut off from intimate contact with opposite
viewpoints, which alone is able to correct
his narrowmindedness. College, with its
great diversity of types and opinions, offers
a superb opportunity for the student to
enlarge his appreciation of other people's
ideas and ideals. So don't be a "Sigma
Delta Type" or "Our Gang Type" or any
"Type" — be human and an individual. Make
friends among students of several races,
classes, and groups.
College is not a four years loaf and the
student who makes it that is a failure.
Remember that you are in college primarily
to work and to accomplish things thereby.
To take one's studies seriously is Tiot synony-
mous with accepting uncritically all that
is spoken in lectures or written in text-
books. You should learn from the start
to react to what is told you. If your doubts
arise, voice them modestly yet boldly until
the matter is cleared up through discussion.
Perhaps no group understands life so
well as do college and university profes-
sors. They are enough apart from the
mad whirl of everyday existence to view
it more calmly than most others. Get
well acquainted with your teachers and
talk to them often. They are good sports
and are anxious to help you. Friendly as- ;
sociation with them is priceless.
Some students enter college with the
feeling that something drastic is going to
'M" HANDBOOK 19
happen to their religion. They wonder what
the effect of college will be. "Loss of
faith," "sophomoric skepticism," "religious
conflict" — these familiar bogeys frighten
us unnecessarily. If we suffer tension in
our religious thinking in college days it
means that we are growing and are think-
ing deeply. The danger is that we will
stop thinking too soon, under the impres-
sion that we have arrived at the end. Don't
make that great mistake — keep thinking.
College should mean transition; it should
not mean collapse.
College life, you will find, is immensely
busy in its varied activities, but strive
above all else to live a well-proportioned
life, giving everything its just due and
endeavoring to be fair to your better self.
Let's hope that now and then you will be
glad when the last one has lounged out
of your room, to prop your feet on the
desk and have a thought or two not
compelled by assignments of even good
form. Let's hope you will develop opin-
ions on other than conventional dinner-
topics, and that you will stand up for your
convictions. Don't just follow the crowd.
A good argument, hotly contested, that
leaves you scowling thoughtfully in the
dark for long before you drop off to sleep
may not be good for your health, but it
builds mental sinew.
Search you after these things, then, new
student, the habit of getting the stuff to
build your own philosophy; the mental
bravery to defend it when made; the art of
making valuable friends and of talking to
them when made; all of these things are to
be found in four short but glorious years
in college I

OPENING SOCIAL EVENTS
The social life at Maryville is well provid-
ed for and no matter what your disposi-
tion is there are occasions you will like.
These opening entertainments will carry you
over the time of newness and afford op-
portunity for getting acquainted with your
fellow students and to get the first glimpse
of the true Maryville spirit.
The Y. W. C. A. give their reception on
Baldwin lawn and a good time awaits those
who enjoy good "eats" and gossip.
The Y. M. C. A. entertains the new
men with a well planned, varied program
which furnishes plenty of thrills. The re-
ception is held out in the woods, in the
dark of the moon, and light is supplied from
the old stump which is sacrificed for the
occasion. Kemp Davis is planning a big
time at the "Pow Wow" this ye&r and
every man wants to be in on it.
The Societies hold their receptions soon
after school opens. The two girls' societies,
Banonian and Theta Epsilon have their re-
ceptions together, usually around a big
camp fire in the college woods. The boys'
societies, Athenian and Alpha Sigma usually
hold their receptions in their respective
halls, where the new men are introduced
to a society program and society "feed."

he makes the vote unanimous. It's up to

On Saturday afternoon, September 1 4th,
comes the Faculty reception. You are
introduced to the professors while you are
in their good graces, and those who attend
this reception look back upon it as one of
the most pleasant events of the opening
week. Take this opportunity to become ac-
quainted with the faculty who are your
friends as well as instructors.
Snap is an institution on the Hill — it
is the favorite out-door sport and when you
hear the announcement in the dining room
at lunch that "there will be a snap tonight
on Baldwin Lawn" — prepare to go.
How do you play it? We have played
it for two years, but it is so simple and
yet so intricate that we are not able to
explain it. It will come natural to you
though. Snap furnishes plenty of exercise
and yet sufficient opportunities for a quiet
chat with one whom you have snapped.

Brief Sketch of History
The Young Men's Christian Association,
like all great organizations, had its origin in
one man. Sir George Williams of London,
England. He was a poor lad, who worked
in a drapery establishment in the city of
London, but who found time to speak a
word for his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Feeling the deep need for daily prayer and
spiritual uplift, he called together a num-
ber of his companions, and each morning
they held a prayer meeting in an upper room
of that establishment. Their group kept
growing and soon they had quite a follow-
ing. From this group grew what is today
known as the foremost organization for
the carrying of the Gospel of Jesus Christ
to young men throughout the world. The
Young Men's Christian Association. Ever
since that date, 1844, this Association has
continued to grow, until today it encircles
the globe; bringing together young men
and boys into a brotherhood that keeps
alive the spirit of Christ.
The Student Young Men's Christian As-
sociation, of which V. e are a part, is one of
the many branches of this great organiza-
tion, and it works for the uplift and welfare
of the young men in colleges throughout the
world. Its membership runs into the thou-
sands, and other Associations are being
formed every year. Most associations have
secretaries to head up the work, but the
students of the college are the chief pro-
moters and workers in the associations.
They are student organizations, and it is the
duty and privilege of everj' student to
back them in the best_way possible.
'M" HANDBOOK 33
The purpose of the Young Men's Chris-
tian Association is to develop the three-
fold man; spirit, mind, and body. In the
publication of this "M" Book these phases
of its program are set forth.
Scope of Work
The Y. M. C. A. of Maryville is a live
and active organization. It seeks to serve
the students at the college in every way
possible not limiting its activities to strictly
religious matters. We realize that if we
accomplish the great aim of the Y. M. C. A.
"a clean mind in a sound body" that we
w.ll have progressed a long way on the
road to religious salvation. The cabinet
of the Y is made up of the most congenial
and most representative of the Maryville
students. They are always glad to oblige
you in any way they can. Don't get the
idea that the Y is a stagnant, lifeless, in-
active, organization at Maryville, but a live,
gro.'. ing, healthy organization in whose ac-
tivities you are urged to take part, enjoy
and derive benefit from. Don't hesitate to
call on the Secretary when there is some-
thing you want to know. If there is some-
thing you want done ask him to do it.
He is glad and willing to help you. The
services held under the direction of the
Y are the best, we have the best speakers
procurable, interesting slides and motion
pictures, and the most delightful song
service imaginable. These things are for
you — the "Y" is yours. Get in the habit
of taking part in its activities and in com-
ing to its meetings — you will never re-
There is nothing quite so contemptible
as a person with no respect for himself.

In 192 7 the "Y" celebrated its fiftieth
birthday. Fifty years of progress; fifty
years of service to man, through Jesus
Christ. This year the "Y" begins its fifty-
third year. We are praying and working
toward one great goal: to bring men to
take an interest in Jesus Christ and to
incite them to be doers of the Word and
not hearers only. Jesus said, "Lo, I am
with you always." That statement clears
cur vision; deepens our interest; expels our
fears and brings us to a realization of a
great duty to the Master. The "Y" is a
service sign — service to God. May God's
blessing be upon its services and may men
apprecaite all that He has done for them
by obeying His word.
'M" HANDBOOK 35
In behalf of the Y. M. C. A. I want to
bid you welcome to Maryville's campus.
You have chosen the right college, now
make the most of your opportunities. Work
hard. Take an active part in student
activities, athletics and forensics, but don't
try to run the old place. Remember you
are in college.
The "Y" extends to you the hand of
fellowship, and wishes to aid you in learn-
ing how to live life at its best. The "Y"
has no ambition to be merely another ac-
tivity. If it can not supply some vital
inspiration that will find expression in a
better way of living, if it can not stimulate
intelligent thought on some of the prob-
lems that confront us, it will have failed in
its larger tasks. Our success or failure
V ill be to a large extent determined bj'
the response of you Freshmen. Do your
part. Be good college men by not neglect-
ing the religious part of college life.
Finally, meet and know the officers and
cabinet. Come over to our rooms in the
"Y" building, Barlett Hall, and talk things
over with us. Remember the Y. M. C. A.
is your friend. You can help it and it will
greatly help you.

The Sunday Meetings
The Sunday Meetings occupy a prominent
part in the Y. M. program. Last year the
meetings were all well attended and much
impetus was given to the movement by the
whole hearted support of the fellows.
The spiritual as well as the mental side
is taken care of in these Sunday meetings
which are held at 1 o'clock in Bartlett Hall.
The practice was followed last year of hav-
ing prominent men who have retained their
contact with students to come make
addresses and lead discussions. Programs
have been outlined in advance and some
very interesting, instructive discussions are
in store for those who attend.

Y. W. C. A.
One of the strongest organizations on
the Hill is the Young Women's Christian
Association. It functions from the week
end before school begins in the fall until
the last day of school in the spring.
Before the freshmen arrive at Maryville
plans are be!ng made by the Y. W. C. A.
for making their life more pleasant, and
to help them to get acquainted with their
new environment. For this the big sister
movement is carried out, whereby every
new girl has an old girl as her "big sister,"
who corresponds with her during the sum-
mer, meets her at the train, helps her to
get settled, and is a big sister to her in
every way possible. In this way new girls
will feel that they have a friend as soon
as they arrive.
Aside from this there are hikes, socials
and part'es for the new girls given by the
Y. W. C. A. all through the year.
Perhaps the biggest feature of Y. W. C. A.
is the Sunday meetings. They begin the
first Sunday afternoon and last all through
the year. Programs are prepared which
will give the girls opportunities for wor-
ship together and discussion of topics of
Joint meetings with the Y. M. C. A. are

Dear New Girls:
1 am glad you are coming to Maryville
this year and on behalf of the Y. W. C. A.
I want to welcome you to College Hill.
You made a wise selection when you chose
Maryville and I know you will like your
College offers so many opportunities for
one's development outside of regular class-
room work^ — important though this is — and
I hope that you will take advantage of the
many extra-curricular activities offered at
Maryville for they play a large part in
one's college life.
Friendsh ps mean much in college. The
kind of girls you will meeL in the Y. W.
^. A. are the kind of girls worth know-
ing and they want to be your friends.
Vyhen you come to Maryville please count
the Y. W. C. A. as your best friend for
she v\ ants to help you all she can.
I am looking forward with eagerness to
meeting \ou in September and I'm sure we
will have a great year together.

The Y. W. Reading Room
The Y. W. C. A. has set aside this room
where the girls may go to read or rest at
any time they choose to do so. It is one
of the best places to go and read and
relax. There are all of the most popular
magazines in it. There are books of all
types from the classics to the most popular
fiction. Not only is there reading material
but there is also music. 'We have a Vic-
trola that is quite an asset to the reading

room. What more does one need to com-
plete this ideal lounging room.
Wnere is this Ideal Place?
All paths lead to the Y. W. C. A. reading
room. It is located on the second floor of
Thaw Hall adjoining the Y. W. C. A. Audi-
torium. You can't help finding it.
When is it open?
Most of the time and on certain after-
noons during the week. A librarian or her
assistant will be there so that books may
be taken out.
Nu Gamma Si^rma
The Nu Gamma Sigma stands for New
Girls Society and that is just what it is.
All the new girls are divided into groups of
ten with an old girl as leader. These
groups meet once a week during the first
few weeks of school. You see the purpose
o, Nu Gamma is to make the new girl
acquainted with college life. You will find
yourselves in a strange and new environ-
ment and naturally you will have prob-
lems and questions. In the meetings of
these groups your problems will be discussed
and a solution will be found.
You will form some beautiful friendships
among the other new girls, as you hike
together, chat together, and solve your
problems. You will seem like sisters in
one big family. The mother of the Nu
Gamma Sigma is the Y. W. C. A. who is
constantly planning new ways and means
to make her daughters happy. This is the
way we spell our name:
Newness in thought.
M-astery of problems.
We will all admit that Nature can
not be surpassed when it comes to real
beauty. Will you enjoy the hikes at M.
C? What a foolish thought. Any red
blooded boy or girl loves to get out in the
mountains and along the clear, fast-flow-
ing streams anywhere, but the mountains
of East Tennessee are especially beautiful.
To view the sunrise or the sunset from
some lofty peak gives a fellow a thrill — a
feeling of strength and freedom indescrib-
able. One of the best hikes taken by the
college is to the top of Thunderhead, a
treeless dome in the Great Smoky Moun-
tains, 5,700 feet above sea level. This
is usually the big "Y" hike of the year and
you are sure to have many long remem-
bered experiences. Other trips are taken
to Look Rock, Sunshine, Calderwood, Sheep
Pen Cave and the dam at Cheoa, over
which extends the longest single span
cable in the world. All you need is a little
"pep" and sure, you might need some "eats"
and a couple of blankets. Get your bunch
together and go.

JOINT ACTIVITIES OF Y. M. C. A. AND
Y. W. C. A.
Each summer soon after commencement
representatives from the college go to
Blue Ridge, North Carolina, to attend the
conference of all the southern college Y. M.
and Y. W. C. A.'s. At this conference about
two-thirds of the time is spent in listening
to addresses by the most prominent student
speakers in America and some of the lead-
ing speakers of foreign countries, and in
studying the important religious and social
problems of the day. The remainder of the
time is spent in rest and recreation, such
as hikes and other various sports. The
purpose of the conference is to make real
to college men and women the facts of
Blue Ridge is located in one of the most
beautiful parts of the Blue Ridge mountains,
sixteen miles east of Asheville, and has the
finest conference grounds in the south.
The inspirational lectures and wholesome
atmosphere of the place leave a lasting im-
pression that is worth a year of college
work. Next June we want a large delega-
tion from Maryville and perhaps there will
be an opportunity for you to go.
Life Work Conference
Truly there has come no greater institu-
tion on College Hill than the life work con-
ference. This conference held in March
under the direction of the Y. M. C. A. and
Y. W. C. A. has been proven a worthy asset
to the college. It was instituted with the
belief that we as students should give con-
sideration to definite plans for our life
work. For three days real leaders come and
'M" HANDBOOK 45
give us their time and service in order to
help us decide this great question. Leaders
in nearly all the leading branches of work
are represented — -medicine, law, the min-
istry, missions, business, agriculture, teach-
ing, coaching and a number of others.
Don't fail to take advantage of this op-
portunity when it comes. It costs you
nothing and returns may be very great.
The Lyceum Course
Each year, as part of the varied activities
sponsored by the "Y", a course of four
Lyceum programs is given during the year
in Voorhees Chapel. A fifth program,
somewhat in the nature of an extra num-
ber, is also given at some time during the
year. In the year just past an excellent
selection of Lyceum numbers was presented
on the hill, and an even better group has
been chosen for the year to come.
Fred Hope Fund
Every spring we have a "Fred Hope
Campaign drive," conducted by the Y. M.
C. A. and Y. W. C. A., for the purpose of
supporting the work of one of Maryville's
sons in the mission field of Africa. Every
year the student body makes voluntary
contributions well over one thousand dollars
for this work.

46 MARYVILLE COLLEGE
The Alpha Sigma literary society has
grown by leaps and bounds during the past
ten years. Any male student of the college
may become an active member by receiving
a two-third vote of the members present
at any regular meeting. It is not the aim
of the society to secure as many members
as possible, but instead to secure only those
that are capable of upholding the high
standards set by our predecessors. In other
words it is quality and not quantity that we
are striving for.
Meetings are held every Saturday night
and programs composed of solos, debates,
quartets, etc., are given at this time. The
training received here is worth more to
you than anything else you could take up
while at college. Freshmen, especially,
should be interested in our work.
Once each semester a joint meeting is
held with our sister society, "Theta Epsilon."
One play is given during the year.
To all new students, we extend a hearty
welcome to attend our opening meeting and
see for yourself the kind of receptions we
give. Don't forget us. We need you to
make our society the. best on the Hill.

The Athenian Literary Society was or-
ganizeed in 1869, thereby giving it the dis-
tinction of being the oldest literary organi-
zation on College Hill. It's present mem-
bership enrolls a large proportion of the
male students of the college. The Athenians
are noted for their loyalty to, and en-
thusiasm for their society. The ideal of
Athenian is to give her members such
training as will enable them to secure the
very best development during their college
days; to promote a correct college spirit
and love for Alma Mater. To accomplish
this high ideal she provides weekly pro-
grams of an interesting, instructive, and
varied nature that are full of life, pep,
and college spirit. The Athenian Literary
Society extends a cordial invitation to all
new men to attend the opening social of
the society at the beginning of the year, and
also a hearty invitation is extended to all
new men to become Athenians.

The Bainonian Literary Society is the
oldest literary organization for girls on the
Hill. It was organized in 1875, and ever
since that time it has been an important
factor in the student life. Many new girls
are enrolled in it every year. The society
provides for the development of the talents
of every girl and tries to make her feel
that the society is her own. A program
of an interesting and instructive nature is
provided every Saturday evening. Twice
a year a joint meeting is held with our
brother society, the Athenian. Bainonian
stands for social as well as for literary
development. It aids in the forming of
friendships, and many good times are en-
joyed by all who will take advantage
of what she offers. We extend a hearty
welcome to all new girls, and a wish that

OTHER STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS
The Student Council was organized for
the purpose of furnishing a representative
body of students, who, by virtue of their
position and influence in student affairs,
shall be able to express the sentiment of
the student body. They cooperate with
the Faculty in maintaining Maryville College
ideals and strive to put into execution such
proposals which shall be for the best wel-
fare of the school.
The Council is composed of eight Seniors,
six Juniors, four Sophomores and four
Freshmen who take up matters brought
before them for consideration. Any student
may confer with his representative and
present any matter which he thinks would
be for the welfare of the student body.
The Student Council is not student gov-
ernment, but it seeks to summarize student
opinion and to work with the Faculty in
promoting desirable measures and prevent
actions which are detrimental to the college.
One of the most important musical or-
ganizations on the Hill is the college band.
Membership in the band is open to any
student possessing a fair knowledge of band
music. In addition to giving concerts dur-
ing the year, the members obtain the bene-
fit of two weekly rehearsals under a trained
director. All new students with musical
training are urged to join the band at the
beginning of the year. During the past
year the band was composed of about
twenty members. The band furnishes music
for games and occasionally accompanies
the teams on trips away from the college.
Maryville College Glee Singers
The best known Maryville organization
in East Tennessee is the Maryville College
Glee Singers, "The Merry Music Makers."
This organization was formerly the Men's
Glee Club which made such an enviable
reputation. The Singers enjoyed a very
successful season last year, giving concerts
in the larger East Tennessee towns which
received the praise and commendation of its
several audiences. The annual home con-
cert is the biggest event in the school
calendar and is looked forward to by the
entire student body.

The club of most interest to the girls on

The club consists of eighteen selected and
well trained voices, directed by Miss

are being made to put on an operetta or
musical comedy in the early fall besides
the regular spring concert.
This is the second that it has been pos-
sible to have this club and it is hoped that
the coming year will bring new voices and
a better concert.

Maryville is represented by teams in
every major college sport, and ranks with
the leaders in this section of the country.
The administrative control of athletics is
centered in the Athletic Association.
With L. S. Honaker and "Bob" Thrower
as coaches of Maryville athletics, and hard
fighting teams composed of loyal men, it
is no wnoder that the Athletic Association
has made such a stride forward during the
last two years. A new day has dawned
for Maryville in athletics because she has
two live coaches, plenty of good material,
added equipment, and a splendid field.
F"ootball at Maryville is an institution.
Its purpose is not only to \n in games but to
make men — winning men. Maryville has the
reputation of having one of the best con-
ditioned teams in this section and the past
football season was a success from the
standpoint of games won and lost as well
as from that of training men successfully.
Maryville scored victories over Tusculun
Collge, Cumberland University, King College,
Carson-Newman College, Georgetown Col-
lege, and Lenoir-Rhyne College, and then
our boys traveled down to Atlanta to tie
the strong Oglethorpe University team 6-6
in what was perhaps the best and hardest
game of the season. The year before Mary-
ville tied Kentucky State with the same
score. This fall we have a fairly heavy
schedule, but with the promising material
from last year the prospects are bright for
another winning team of Orange and Garnet
Basketball at Maryville, as at other
Southern colleges, is the leading winter
sport. The season begins early in Decem-
ber and lasts until about the middle of
March. During the past season Maryville
won games from the best teams of the entire
section. She was runner-up in the Smoky
Mountain Conference Tournament held at
Kingsport, Tennessee, but lost in the finals
to the crack team from Emory-Henry Col-
lege by the score of 2 6-2 7. With six letter
men back for next year, around whom
Coach Honaker will build his team, Maryville
is expected to have one of the best teams in
the history of the college.
Maryville perhaps excels more in base-
ball than in any other sport. Although she
does not encourage professional ball, yet
there are some ten or twelve former Mary-
ville baseball players who are making a
mark for themselves in the major leagues.
Among these are such men as John Stone
and "Speedy" Ruble, of the Detroit Tigers.
Last year Maryville won every college game
and beat the Knoxville Smokies 6-4. Al-
though the past season was not as good as
some have been in previous years, as a
whole it was very commendable. Freshmen,
if you can play baseball go out and let us
see what you have.
Track and field sports are just beginning
to take their rightful place in Southern
College Athletics and at Maryville there is
a very noticable incline in interest for this

Tennis is growing rapidly in popularity at
Maryville. Last year we had on our
schedule the University of Tennessee, Tus-
culun, University of Chattanooga, and East
Tennessee State Normal. In this sport, as
in the others, we are producing winning
teams. The prospects are good for a good
reason this coming year.

DEBATING AND ORATORY
Maryville has the distinction of having
the Tennessee Alpha chapter of the National
Honorary Forensic Fraternity, Pi Kappa
Delta. This organization proves a great
inspiration for those interested in any
phase of forensics and membership in it is
a coveted honor. Year by year forensics
are coming into the foreground and are
holding an important place in activities on
College Hill. Maryville is also a member
of both the Tennessee and the East Tennes-
see Oratorical Leagues and always ranks
high in these annual contests.
After rather a dull beginning and a couple
of defeats in debates, Coach Queener was
able by hard work to get into shape some
winning teams who scored victories over
the University of Chattanooga and Lincoln
Memorial University by unanimous decisions.
An open-forum non-decision debate was
held on the home platform with Centre
College, of Kentucky.
The regular Pi Kappa Delta Convention
of the 13th Province, composed of Tennes-
see, Kentucky, and Indiana, was held on
the 8th and 9th of April up at Lexington,
Kentucky. The Maryville delegation to the
convention was composed of seven, besides
Coach Queener and Dr. Hunter, and among
them were men and women debaters, orators,
and extemporaneous speakers. In the end
Maryvill was the undisputed victor — winning
the tournament by more than one hundred
Only one varsity member will be lost
by graduation this year and the prospects
are bright for another successful forensic
season. The national Pi Kappa Delta con-
vention will be held out in Wichita, Kansas,
this year and it is hoped that Maryville
may send representatives to this.

PRAYER OF A SPORTSMAN
Dear Lord, in the battle that goes on
I ask but a field that is fair,
A chance that is equal with all in the strife
A courage to strive and to dare.
And if 1 should lose, let me stand the code
With my faith and my honor held high;
And if I should lose, let me stand by the
And cheer as the winners go by.
And Lord, may my shouts be ungrudgingly
A tribute that comes from the heart
And let me not cherish a snarl or a sneer
Or play any sniveling part;
Let me say, "There they ride on whom
Since they played the game better than
Let me stand with a smile by the side of
And cheer as the winners go by.
So grant me to conquer, if conquer 1 can
By proving my worth in the fray;
But teach me to lose like a Regular Man
And not like a craven I pray.
Let me take off my hat to the warriors who
To victory splendid and high;
Yes, teach me to stand by the side of the
And cheer as the winners go by.

THE TRUE MARYVILLIAN—
I — NEVER questions the decisions of of-
ficials. They are doing their best as they
see it and doubtless much better than
you could do.
2 — NEVER makes deprecatory remarks
about opposing teams. Cat-calls, hoots,
hisses, and the like, are positive indications
of ignorance, ill-breeding, or cowardice —
usually of all.
3 — NEVER says or does anything which
will interfere with his opponents in the
conduct of the contest.
4 — NEVER lacks consideration of his
opponents in their defeat. He remembers
that they did their best and that he, too,
will sometimes lose.
5 — NEVER tolerates abuse of visiting
teams or unsportsmanlike conduct toward
them on the part of others. He is a gentle-
man himself and demands gentlemanly con-
duct of others, but he
1 — ALWAYS applauds good play and ad-
mires skill in his opponents.
2 — ALWAYS remembers that he is a host
and that visiting teams are his guests.
3 — ALWAYS realizes that the reputation
of the entire college may be tainted by the
unsportsmanlike action of one individual.
4 — ALWAYS shows consideration for
those opponents who are so unfortunate as
to be injured.
5 — ALWAYS remembers that a friend of
the team is a friend of the college.

The Moody Bible Institute of Chicago
Rev. James M. Gray, D. D., President
Founded by the Great Evangrelist and
Christian Educator, D. L. Moody, in 1886
The object of the Institute is expressed in
the service rendered by its students in all
parts of the world, who are pastors, evangel-
ists, missionaries, teachers, directors of re-
ligious education, gospel singers, Y. M. C. A.
and Y. W. C. A. secretaries, rescue mission
superintendents, deaconesses and workers in
Sunday Schools and boys' and girls' clubs.
This is divided into a Day School, Evening-
School and Correspondence School. The Gen-
eral Course of the Day School is covered in
two years. Its enrollment last year was
1238. Five other courses are Missionary,
Pastors Religious Education, Jewish Mis-
sions, and Swedish-English. Advanced work
is taken in these courses covering longer
periods of time.
The Evening School permits students to
take work equivalent to the Day School,
making them eligible to the same diploma,
though it necessarily covers a longer period
of time. A shorter course is possible, how-
ever, leading to a certificate. The enroll-
ment last year was 861.
The Correspondence School is for those
who cannot attend the Institute in person.
Fourteen courses are offered in different
methods of Bible Study, Practical Christian
Work, Evangelism, Christian Evidences,
etc. For these a limited fee is charged.
The enrollment last year was 10,047.
