wholly embodied with the Maryville
spirit, the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W.
C. A. respectfully and gratefully dedi-
cate this twenty-fifth volume of the
MISS CLEMMIE J. HENRY
The purpose of this handbook is not
to advertise Maryville College. The
ever-increasing- number of young men
and women who have left its halls for
fields of meritorius and altruistic
service have eulogized the college far
more effectively than anything that
might be said here. What then is our
object in publishing this handbook?
Briefly, it is to give a few practical
and helpful suggestions to those who
are about to enter college walls for
the first time; to give to those who
are just setting out on their bon voy-
age through Maryville the key- with
which they may open the doors of
learning and experience that confront
them; to aid them, in a small way, to
catch the Spirit of Maryville in their
very first days spent on College Hill
which means a bigger and better man-
hood and womanhood.
New students, the four years you
spend at Maryville will be busy years.
The college "grind" affects everyone.
But these years will pass quickly; too
quickly, in fact. My advice to you
then is that you strive for the BEST
in those brief years that you may be-
come a true Maryville man or woman.
It is with the hope that the infor-
mation and suggestions contained in
this little handbook will serve you
well in adjusting you to your new en-
vironment and making your first
years at Maryville worthwhile that we
send you this copy of the Maryville

THE OFFER OF THE COLLEGE
To be at home in all lands and ages;
to count nature a familiar acquaint-
ance 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 what-
ever task you unde^itake; 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 cooper-
ate with others for common ends; to
learn manners from students who are
gentlemen and form character under
professors who are Christians — this is
the offer of the college for the best
four years of your life.
12 MARYVILL.E COLLEGE
Maryville has grown from a class of
five students who gathered about Dr.
Isaac Anderson in 1819, to the fore-
most college in Tennessee, having an
enrollment last year of 786 students
from 37 different states and countries.
Its growth has been phenomenal and
the romance of its growth from a lit-
tle log cabin to a completely equipped,
modern up to date college has been
chronicled by Dr. Wilson in his "Cen-
tury of Maryville College" which you
may read in the library.
Grounds, comprising 275 acres of the
most beautiful scenery in East Ten-
nessee, on which rest 19 buildings; and
an endowment of $2,342,000 do not
form a complete basis upon which to
judge the college. Numbered arhong
its alumni are men who have distin-
guished themselves in every type of
unselfish service. Familiarize your-
self with Maryville's entire history.
You are a Maryvillian — a student in
one of the finest colleges in the South.
Maryville College is located in Mary-
ville, Blount County, Tennessee, and is
in the midst of a thriving and pro-
gressive community. Maryville is six-
teen miles south of Knoxville on the
Knoxville and Augusta division of the
Southern Railway, and on the paved
highway. Route No. 33 leading from
Knoxville to the South, and the new
Smoky Mountain National Park.
Maryville may be reached from Knox-
ville by Southern Railway trains twice
daily, and by busses leaving the
Knoxville Bus Terminal at State and
Union Streets every forty-five min-
utes throughout the day.
<M'> HANDBOOK 13
The sixteen buildings on the Hill are
conveniently located from any spot on
the campus; and a description is given
here so that you will be able to recog-
nize just where you are when you ar-
rive next September. Walk with me
up the "Corduroy," the path leading
from town to the Hill.
Directly in front of us is the gray
frame building, Baldwin Hall, one of
the girls' dormitories. To the right
is the Voorhees Chapel, the dark red
brick building in which the daily
morning worship is conducted, and
where all kinds of entertainments are
held. Looking down Dodge Avenue
from the Chapel is a large yellow
brick building, Carnegie Hall, the
men's dormitory; and across the street
from Carnegie is Memorial Hall, a
structure resembling Baldwin which
is also a dormitory for women.
In front of the Chapel is Anderson
Hall, a red brick building, one of the
three oldest buildings on the Hill.
Here are located the offices of Presi-
dent Lloyd where sympathetic, un-
derstanding counsel is given to all
who need it; Miss Clemmie's office
where you go to find out about self-
help; the treasurer's office where you
will pay your bills; and the registrar's
office. The Art room is also located
on the same floor as the administra-
tive offices as is the printing room.
The rest of the building is devoted to
classrooms, and a small gymnasium
for girls on third floor.
As we walk out of Anderson past
the fountain, in front of us is the
Book Store where desk and study
equipment (except brains) can be
bought at reasonable prices. A
branch of the United States Post Of-
fice is located in the Book Room.
From here mail is delivered to the
dormitories and offices. Mail should
be addressed: College Station, Mary-
ville, Tennessee; with the addition of
the name of your dormitory and your
room number. The Book Store sup-
plies a loan library called the James
R. Hills Library, In 1888 Miss Sarah
B. Hills of New York contributed a
fund for the establishment of a loan
library to aid students in obtaining
textbooks at a reasonable loan.
To the left of the Book Store, about
half a square up the walk, is Pearsons
Hall, the large red brick building with
the white columns, another dormitory
for women. Most upperclassmen room
in Pearsons while Memorial and Bald-
win accommodate the sophomores and
freshmen. On the .first floor of Pear-
sons is located the dining room where
about six hundred of your classmates
eat three times a day; and here's a
hint: napkins are not provided so
bring about half a dozen with your
Behind Pearsons Hall to the left is
the Ralph Max Lamar Hospital. A
free clinic is held two times a week
and in cases of slight illnesses no
charge is made for nursing. How-
ever, for an extended illness the pa-
tient pays $7.00 for room, food and
laundry per week.
On leaving Pearsons Hall we shall
go to Thaw Hall, the newest and larg-
est building on the Hill. Just before
reaching Thaw glance to the left and
you will see the Willard Memorial
where President Wilson lives. This
"31" HANDBOOK 15
memorial was built through a gener-
ous g-ift of. Mrs. Jane F. Willard in
memory of her husband.
In Thaw Hall is located the Lamar
Memorial Library which contains over
30,000 books. The library is open
twelve hours every day from Monday
to Saturday. The museum is located
in a room partitioned off the library
to the left of the entrance. In this
room are found collections of rare ob-
jects from Japan, Korea, and China;
relics of the Jndians who used to live
in this region of Tennessee; antiqui-
ties from the Civil War; a model of
our own college when it was known
as "The Log College"; and many other
interesting and valuable objects rep-
resentative of the .world around.
On the second floor are located the
Dean's Office, classrooms, the Y. W.
Auditorium and the Y. W. Reading
Room. In the reading" room are books
of all types and magazines to suit
every individual taste. The reading
room is open throughout the day for
the pleasure and the benefit of all
girls who wish to take advantage of it.
We now leave Thaw and take a
short cut over to Bartlett and the
swimming pool, passing to the left of
Fayerweather Science Hall in which
are located the chemistry, physics,
biology, zoology, and home economics
laboratories and lecture rooms.
Bartlett Hall is one of the oldest
Y. M. C. A. buildings in the South.
It was completed in 1901, the brick
being made by the students themselves
under the leadership of Kin Taka-
hashi, a Japanese student, at that time.
In this building are contained the Y,
16 MARYVILLE COL,IiEGE
Auditorium, Y Store, parlors, a small
gymnasium, and rooms for the offi-
cers of the Y.
The swimming- pool is located in a
separate building at the left of Bart-
lett, and the pool itself is twenty-five
by seventy-five feet in dimensions. Be-
hind Bartlett is the Alumni Gymnasium,
one hundred and ten feet square, con-
taining a maple floor and collapsible
As we walk out past the swimming
pool, and into the college woods we
come to the "House in the Woods"
where the college pastor and his wife,
Dr. and Mrs. William P. Stevenson,
live. It is a beautiful English style
red brick house where all students are
cordially welcome at all times.
This year the campus has been im-
proved by the construction of paths
and the purchasing of benches from a
fund raised by the student body and
faculty. The work on the paths was
done by the men, who did the work
free. We hope you will help keep the
good work started this year.
Be sure to remember when figuring
the amount of cash you will need to
see you thru college for the year, you
should include the cost of the follow-

$4.00 for an Annual

THE MACHINE SHOP
"Man without' tools is nothing, —
With tools he is all." This proverb of
Thomas Carlyle in a certain sense
should be the fundamental reason
why you have chosen to come to col-
lege. The tools of life are physical,
mental, and spiritual ones, and happy
is he who makes those so near to per-
fection that they can stand the trials
to which they are put in the toils,
struggles, and temptations of life.
Those tools may be abused; but so
tempered ought they to be that they
may be readily sharpened and put in
College attempts to fit you with
knowledge to make tools of the ma-
terial you already possess and like-
wise how to use those tools. Con-
sequently your college career is
an apprenticeship, a recruit-training
stage through which you pass where
your physical, mental, and spiritual
self is subjected to training and dis-
cipline. This helps to fashion and to
temper the tools you make. Ofttimes
the apprenticeship will irk and chafe
you, and unless you have enthusiasm
and interest and pride in your work-
manship, you will become a knocker,
a kicker, and a chronic pessimist.
The tools with which we each would
work then must be serviceable. The
aim of life is Service. And college is
the lathe and machine shop in which
the tools are fashioned, tempered and
sharpened. In fact, "Service is one oi
the ways by which a tiny insect like
one of us can get a purchase on the

Some one has said: "To live in

Of course, you will still be living
in the hearts of those you have left
behind when you come to college. It
will be your privilege when you get to
college to gain entrance in the hearts
of many new friends who will make
your life fuller and richer. In mak-
ing these new contacts the college will
meet you more than half way — to give
you a welcome to all it has to offer
The first greeting you receive will
probably be from some member of the
Christian Associations, the Y. M. C. A.
and the Y. W. C. A. Next, the large
family in the dormitory will give you
a warm welcome in their circles. In
these circles you will be privileged to
form some of the most intimate and
lasting friendships of your life, for
no friendships are stronger or finer
than those formed in the intimate
relationships of dormitory life.

Last, but not least, you will be ush-

This atmosphere is kept pure and

you should go through college without
having imbibed this Maryville Spirit,

things Maryville has to offer you.

It is with a great deal of pleasure
that 1 address this letter to every
Freshman and new man intending to
matriculate at Maryville this year. I
want to assure you that you have
made a wise choice, and that you are
coming' among friends who are anx-
ious to help you avail yourselves of
the many opportunities which will be
yours at Maryville. It is particularly
in behalf of the Y. M. C. A. that I
welcome you to our campus.
The "Y" extends to you the hand
of fellowship and in so doing hopes
that you will enter heartily and' sin-
cerely into the Organization and its
work while here. It will go a long
way toward making your college ca-
reer a success. It will make your
fellows in college respect you more.
It will supply vital inspiration in
times of need. It will broaden and
deepen your concept of life. It will
develop you in countless ways and
make you a better college man.
We are going to do everything pos-
sible for you. If you desire help or
information about anything, you will
find a "Y" man ready and anxious to
aid you. We want you to drop over
to the Y. M. C. A. whenever you can
and talk things over, because the of-
ficers and cabinet members desire to
meet and become well acquainted with
each one of you as soon as possible.
I am looking forward eagerly to the
opening of college in a few days when
I can greet you personally.

Short History of the Association
The Young Men's Christian Associa-
tion, like all great org-anizations, had
its orig-in in one man, Sir Georg-e Wil-
liams of London, Eng-land. 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 number of his companions, and each
morning they held a prayer meeting
in an upper room of that establish-
ment. Their group kept growing and
soon they had quite a following. 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 Associa-
tion. 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
Association, of which we are a part, is
one of the many branches of this great
organization, 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
colleges are the chief promoters and
workers in the associations. They are
student organizations, and it is the
duty and privilege of every student to
back them in the best way possible.
«M» HANDBOOK 29
The purpose of the Young Men's
Christian Association is to develop the
threefold man; spirit, mind, and body.
And in its work on College Hill these
phases of its program are stressed.
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 will
have progressed a long way on the
road to religious salvation. The cab-
inet of the Y is made up of the most
congenial and most representative of
the Maryville students. They are al-
ways glad to oblige you in any way
they can. Don't get the idea that the
Y is a stagnant, lifeless, inactive, or-
ganization at Maryville. but a live,
growing. healthy organization in
whose activities you are urged to take
part, enjoy and derive benefit from.
Don't hesitate to call on the Secretary
when there is something you want to
know. If there is something you want
done ask him to do it. He is "glad and
willing to help you. The "Y" is yours.
Get in the habit of taking part in its
activities and in coming to its meet-
ings — you will never regret it.
Christ is walking life's shores again!
Christ is choosing his fishermen.
With nets far spread for their
Christ looks in at the office door!
Christ is searching mill and store —
It's you! It's you, He's calling.

THE TEST OF A MAN
The test of a man is the fight he
The grit that he daily shows,
The way he stands on his feet and

A coward can smite when there's
naught to fear.
When nothing his progress bars.
But it takes a man to stand up aod
While some other fellow stars.
It isn't the victory after all
But the fight that a fellow makes.
The man who, driven against the wall,
Still stands erect and takes
The blows of fate with his head held
Bleeding and bruised and pale.
Is the man who'll win, in the by and

It's the bumps you get and the jolts
And the shocks that your courage

That shows if your stuff i« real.

Y. W. C. A.
One of the strong-est 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 Mary-
ville plans are being made by the
Y. W. C. A. for making their life more
Pleasant, and to help them to get ac-
quainted with their new environment.
For this the big sister movement is
carried out, whereby every new girl
has an old girl as her "big sis.ter,"
who ^corresponds with her during the
summer, 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, so-
cials, and parties for the new girls
given by the Y. W. C. A. all through
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. Pro-
grams are prepared which will give
the girls opportunities for worship
together and discussion of topics of
Joiiit meetings with the Y. M. C. A.
are held at various times during the
year. There is^ always excellent co-
operation between the two organiza-
tions and working together thus they
are able to accomplish great things.
The Y. W. sponsors many activities
among which are aiding the Y. M. in
the Lyceum Programs, the May Day,

circus, Carols at Christmas and
Easter. Nu Gamma Sigm^, the or-
phanag"e and mission work. With all
of these you cannot fail to realize the
importance of the Y. W. C. A.
Nu Gamma Sigma
The Nu Gamma Sigma stands for
New Girls Society and that is just
what it is. All the new girls are di-
vided into g-roups 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
of Nu Gamma is to make the new girls
acquainted with college life. You will
find yourselves in a strange and new
environment and naturally you will
have problems and questions. In the
meetings of these groups your prob-
lems 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
seein 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:
N-ewness in thought.
M-astery of problems.
The Y. W. Reading Room
The Y. W. C. A. has set aside a room
where the girls may go to read or rest
at any time they choose to do so. It
is yours; make the most of it.

TO THE \\03IEN
What is it like at Maryville? What
shall I take with me? These are just
a few of the questions that are enter-
ing- the minds of the prospective
women students and it is to you that
we are writing- this message of what
to bring and what to do.
To begin with, the dormitory rooms
are furnished with a study table, two
chairs, a dresser, a small table, and
either a double decker or two single
beds. These few things, plus curtains,
dresser scarfs, pillows, bed spreads,
blankets, sheets, pennants, pictures,
and other similar necessities and nov-
elties of your own bringing, will make
up a very attractive room.
As for clothes, make most of thein
suitable for general school wear, be-
cause this kind of clothing is worn
here more than any other style. How-
ever, you will want an evening dress
for various social functions, and for
the presentations, plays, Lyceum num-
bers, and recitals that are given in the
Chapel throughout the year. Be sure
to bring black bloomers for the re-
quired gymnasium classes, a swim-
ming suit, and also a pair of knickers
or riding- breeches for hiking- and
other outdoor sports.
We have study hour every night but
Saturday, and then, after literary
society meetings, we have our feeds
and other informalities, so don't for-
get to pack a few old dishes, spoons,
knives, a can opener, and other uten-
sils for domestic purposes.
There is a limit, naturally, upon the
number of times that you may go to
the show or to town, but as a rule
these regulations don't bother Mary-
ville girls, for if you are athletic, you
may swim or play tennis, or if you
are more "serious-minded" there is the
library of the Y. W. C. A. Reading
Room at the extreme left end of Thaw
Hall on second floor, where you may
enjoy magazines, music, and comfort-
You may "moonshine" (that is, you
may enjoy or endure, as the case may
be, the company of the men) every
day except Sunday from after dinner
until 1:10 when the afternoon classes
begin. As Monday is our holiday, the
hours from 1:00 to 3:00 are reserved
for moonshine privileges. To church
on Sunday mornings, to ball games,
snaps, social functions, you may be
accompanied by an escort. Sunday
traveling is deemed undesirable by the
college a.uthorities so plan to leave the
Hill on Saturday and return on Mon-
day when you spend the weekend off
Maryville will be your college home
for nine months, and we hope that
you will find it a very happy and

38 MARYVILLE COLLEGE
Extra-curricular activities, it must
be admitted, are as a rule either over-
stressed or under-stressed. There
seems to be no way of eliminating this
difficulty, except within the student
himself. First we find a student who
has never gotten "on the Boat," who
hardly knows a soul on the campus,
pores over books from morning- till
night, and seldom thinks in terms out-
side his studies. Then we run across
one who does practically no studying
at all, but can say he knows three-
fourths of the people on the campus,
is an athlete, or is a singer, actor, or
whatnot, of note.
The trouble of the first type is that
at the end of his college career he
finds himself at sea without a ship.
Usually he doesn't know what to do
with his book knowledge. The second
comes to nearly the same end, if he
finishes his college at all. Too often
he flunks out.
The ideal arrangement then, in ac-
tivities and studies, as in practically
everything else, is to find the eter-
nally expounded "happy medium."
How to find this ideal is a problem.
The big trouble is that many students
become so engrossed in their activi-
ties that they find studies merely a
dull drag. It is up to the student to
work out his own salvation in this
respect. ,Tust remember this — THAT
ONE CAN'T DO EVERYTHING.
Of course, we are not trying to dis-
suade anyone from partaking of ac-
tivities at all. No indeed. "We believe
"M" HANDBOOK 39
in them. We feel that in order to
obtain a really rounded college career
it is necessary to do many things be-
sides merely studying. But we also
feel, having seen many instances on
both sides of the fence, that a student
must curb his fervor for activities,
just as he must curb his appetite for
too strong doses of books.
So let us say, as a parting word,
that it should be the aim of every stu-
dent to do what is justice in his own
mind to his studies, and then find
some activity which interests him, and
in which he can enlarge his scope of
acquaintances. In this handbook the
new student will find an outline of
practically every activit;v^ on the cam-
pus, and if he is interested, all he
needs to do is to look up the manager,
coach, president, or director of that
activity he likes to find out more
about. All of them will be glad to
help him get started in an activity.
OPENING SOCIAL EVENTS
The social life at Maryville is well
provided for and no matter what your
disposition is, there are occasions you
will like. These opening entertain-
ments will carry you over the time of
newness and afford opportunity for
getting acquainted with your fellow
students and to get the first glimpse
of the true Maryville spirit.
The Y. W. C. A. gives her reception
in the Alumni Gymnasium on the first
Saturday night you spend at Mary-
ville. This past year we had a Gypsy
party with a campfire, fortune tellers
and other gypsy entertainments. This
year we are going to have — ???!! Bet-
ter come and find out.
The Y. M. C. A. entertains the new
men at the same time on Saturday-
night with a well-planned, varied pro-
g-ram which furnishes plenty of thrills.
The reception 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. Don't for-
get: your first Saturday night at 8:00
In the afternoon on Saturday the
Faculty of the College holds a recep-
tion to greet the newcomers and to
renew acquaintances with old stu-
dents. Take this opportunity to be-
come acquainted with the faculty who
are your friends as well as your in-
The literary societies hold their
opening social entertainments soon
after school opens. Each women's
literary society holds an individual
rush week and all new girls are cor-
dially invited to attend these special
programs. Bainonian will be the first
society to entertain this year, and
Theta Epsilon will entertain the fol-
lowing week. The men's societies,
Athenian and Alpha Sigma usually
hold their receptions in their respec-
tive halls where the new men are
introduced to a society program and
a society "feed."
Other Social Activities
Snap is an institution on the Hill —
it is the favorite outdoor sport, and
indoor sport as well. When you hear
the announcement made in chapel or
in the dining room that "there will be
a snap tonight on Baldwin lawn" —
prepare to go.
How do you play it? We have
played it for many years, but it is so
«M" HANDBOOK 41
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.
Moonshining- is the Maryville way of
saying dating and it is this social ac-
tivity which is desired by many who
take full advantage of the time al-
lowed for this activity. You are per-
mitted to moonshine from 12:40 to 1:10
every noon, from 1:00 to 3:00 on Mon-
day afternoon, and to church, Ves-
pers, games, chapel performances, and
any college function.
Two of the most enjoyable social
events of the year are the fall and the
spring inountain hikes. Trains are
chartered for the trips and a whole
day is devoted to mountain climbing
in the beautiful Smokies just a few
miles from Maryville.
Joint Activities of Y. M. C. A.
and Y. W. C. A.
Each year as a part of the varied
activities sponsored by the Y's, a pro-
gram of four lyceum numbers is pre-
sented in the chapel. These numbers
are chosen from the Redpath Chau-
tauqua and the Bureau of Fine Arts,
and are very entertaining and well
received by the students. The cost
is included in your student's activity
fee paid with your semester bills so
that you can enjoy all four numbers
without having to worry about the
Fred Hope Fund

Drive" for the purpose of supporting

most beautiful parts of the Blue Ridge
mountains, sixteen miles east of Ashe-
ville, and has the finest conference

Maryville and perhaps there will be
an opportunity for you to go.
The annual Y. W.-Y. M. Circus is
held each spring at which time reg-
ular circus acts, side-shows, and other
necessities of a true circus are dis-
played. A loving cup is given to the
society presenting the best side-show;
it was won by the Bainonian Literary
society last year.
Joint devotional meetings are held
at intervals throughout the year and
interesting programs are presented by
members of both organizations.

howean — the colleg-e annual? You
will enjoy looking it over. It is a
summary of the year's events at Mary-
ville, and is published by the Junior
Class. The price is $4.00, and it would
be well for you to include it in the
check you make out when you pay
your semester bills. It is a book
which you will want to have to recall

The Bainonian Literary Society is
the oldest literary organization for
women on the Hill. It was organized
in 1875, and ever since that time it
has been an important factor in the
student life. The society provides for
the development of the talents of
every girl and tries to make her feel
that the society is her own. Pro-
g-rams are given every Saturday in
Bainonian Hall on the second floor of
Pearsons. Twice a year a joint meet-
ing is held with our brother society,
the Athenian. Bainonian stands for
social as well as for literary develop-
ment. It aids in the forming of
friendships, and many good times are
enjoyed by all who will take advan-
tage of what she offers. Bainonian
won two loving cups last year; one
for the best mid-winter, and the other
for the best stunt at the Y. M.-Y. W.
Circus. We extend a hearty welcoine
to all new girls, and a wish that you
may soon learn to love Bainonian as
The Athenian Literary Society was
organized in 1869 and is the oldest
literary org^anization on College HilL
Its present membership enrolls a
large proportion of the men of the
college, men who are known for their
loyalty to and enthusiasm 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 college spirit and
a love for Maryville. To accomplish
this hig-h ideal she provides vv^eekly
program^ of an interesting, instruc-
tive, and varied nature that are full
of life, pep, and college spirit. The
meetings are held in Athenian Hall
on the third floor of Anderson. We
extend to you men a cordial invita-
tion to attend the opening meeting at
the beginning of the year, and also a
hearty invitation to become members
of the organization.
Theta Epsilon is the other girls' lit-
erary society and through it is devel-
oped a comradeship which is of gr^at
value to the Thetas on the hill. Each
Saturday night meetings are held in
the society hall on the second floor of
Pearsons Hall, and the programs are
very entertaining and enjoyable. Joint
meetings are held twice a year with
Alpha Sigma, the brother society, at
which time the get-together is en-
joyed by all present. Every year
Theta presents a play, and all Thetas
work loyally for its success. New
girls, Theta will help you and you
will help Theta, so we extend to you
a welcome to come and join our ranks
and help us to do big things for the
year. We are eagerly waiting to meet
Alpha Sigma was organized in 1882
and is a strong organization on the
Hill. It is not the aim of the society
to secure as many members as pos-
sible, but instead to secure only those
who are capable of upholding the
<M" HANDBOOK 47
standards set by our predecessors.
Meeting's are , held every Saturday
night in the society hall on third floor
of Anderson, and programs composed
of solos, debates, quartets, and other
entertaining numbers are given at this
time. One play is given during the
year. To all new students we extend
a hearty welcome to attend our open-
ing meeting and see for yourselves
just what we are.

Pi Kappa Delta
Maryville has the distinction of hav-
ing the Tennessee Alpha chapter of
"M" HANDBOOK 41)
the National Honorary Forensic Fra-
ternity, Pi Kappa Delta. This organ-
ization proves a great inspiration for
those interested in any phase of foren-
sics and membership in it is a coveted
honor. At the national Pi Kappa Delta
convention which was held in Wichita,
Kansas, during- April, Maryville was
represented by Coach Verton Queener,
Forrest Robertson, and William Gra-
ham. The latter two men entered the
debate contest as well as the oratori-
cal and extemporaneous contests, and
displayed creditably the training they
received at Maryville.
Theta Alpha Phi
■ The Tennessee Delta chapter of the
national honorary dramatic fraternity,
Theta Alpha Phi, is located at Mary-
ville, and is composed of the talented
students in dramatics. After a stu-
dent has m.et the rigid requirements
for membership he is initiated into the
fraternity, and becomes a permanent
member. Four new members were
taken in this year.
Sigma Delta Psi
The Maryville chapter of Sigma
Delta Psi, the national athletic fra-
ternity, has been established the past
year. Membership is open to all male
students of the college "who maintain
satisfactory scholarship and command
the respect of their associates as ath-
letes and gentlemen." Such member-
ship is earned through meeting the
standard requirements of the various
athletic tests in the presence of a re-
sponsible committee. The Maryville
committee is composed of Dr. J. H.

The pre-medical club is organized
for students who are preparing them-
selves to practice medicine for the
purpose of better understanding the
problems and interests of the medical
profession. About twenty-five stu-
dents belong to the organization.
A French Club and a Spanish Club
are organized for those students who
are interested in learning more of
these languages. Meetings are held
twice a month at which time only
French or Spanish is spoken throughout
the meeting. Plays are given and in-
teresting programs are held through-
out the year.
Say, fellows, are you interested in
law? Well, then, come around to our
meetings. The purpose of the Law
Club is to help its members to famil-
iarize themselves with the features of
their contemplated life work and to
develop high moral standards in con-
nection with their profession. The
programs consist, for the most part, of
mock trials, parliamentary drill and
lectures on various phases of law.
Greetings to all students. This as-
sociation is composed of all men who

The college has, from its earlies his-
tory been identified with foreign mis-
sions and has sent out one hundred
and ten missionaries into seventeen
foreign countries. Since 1894, the stu-
dents have maintained a Student Vol-

Y. W. Auditorium to study missionary
fields and conditions.
The Art club is composed of about
fifteen members of the college who are
talented in different phases of art.
Work is carried on throughout the
year, and during the week of Com-
mencement an exhibit of the work ac-
complished during that year is held
in Anderson Hall.
Home Economics Club
The Home Economics Club is com-
posed of the girls who are majoring in
Home Economics. Meetings are held
each week and many interesting pro-
jects are carried on during the year.
We have thirty-six different states
represented at Maryville, so naturally
the students from the "home state"
should group together and form state
clubs. The primary purpose of these
clubs is the furthering of good spirit

58 :»TARYVILLE COLLEGE
Basketball at Maryville, as at other
Southern colleg-es, is the leading winter
sport. The season begins early in
December and lasts until about the
middle of March. During- the past sea-
son Maryville won games from the best
teams of the entire section. And with
a number of letter men back for next
year, around whom Coach Honaker
will build his team, Maryville is ex-
pected to have one of the best teams
in the history of the college.
Maryville perhaps excels more in
baseball than in any other sport. Al-
though she does not encourage pro-
fessional ball, yet there are some ten
or twelve former Maryville 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 De-
Freshmen, if you can play baseball
come out and prove what you can do.
Track and field sports are just be-
ginning to take their rightful place in
Southern College Athletics and at
Maryville there is a very noticeable
incline in interest for this branch of
sport. There is always a large group
of cinder path artists who aspire to
Maryville's winged honors and last
season (this spring) a large number
were awarded the winged "M." Track
is really coming into its own at Mary-
ville so just watch us show our heels
to 'em next spring. If any of you
fellows are good track men or think
you are, look up Coach "Bob" Thrower.

Tennis is growing' rapidly in popu-
larity at Maryville. The past season
we had on our schedule such teams as
the University of Tennessee, the Uni-
versity of Chattanooga, Georgetown,
Tusculum. Centre, Catawba, and Ten-
nessee-Wesleyan. In this sport, as in
others, we are producing winning
teams. The prospects look good for
the coming season.
"Every man in some phase of the
*Y' athletic program," is the wish of
the Y. M. C. A. And it is possible,
for the "Y" athletic program covers
every phase of sport. In the fall, the
annual cross-country races and inter-
class football; in the spring, interclass
baseball, interclass track meets, basket-
ball, swimming, wrestling, boxing,
tennis, and horseshoe tournaments.
The gymnasium is equipped with
mats, horses, parallel bars and other
The swimming pool, located next to
the Y building was built at a cost of
$10,000 and occupies a building 58 by
110 feet long, 25 by 75 feet being the
dimensions of the pool itself which is
open the entire year.
The Y. M. C. A. interclass track meet
held in the spring is a feature of the
entire athletic program. Bronze and
gold medals are given to the winners
in each event.
Get into some form of athletics and
keap yourself physically fit. You will
derive a great deal of pleasure from
your athletic competition.

A PRAYER FOR THE CAMPUS
O Thou whose feet have climbed life'
And trod the path of youth.
Our Savior and our Brother still.
Now lead us into truth.
The call is Thine; be Thou the Way,
And give us men, to guide;
Let wisdom broaden with the day,
Let human faith abide.
Who learn of Thee the truth shall find.
Who follow, g-ain the goal;
With reverence crown the earnest mind.
And speak within the soul.
Awake the purpose high which strives,
And, falling, stands again;
Confirm the will of eager lives
To quit themselves like men:
Thy life the bond of fellowship.
Thy love the law that rules.
Thy Name, proclaimed by every lip.
The Master of our schools.
Rev. Louis F. Benson, 1894.
