COLLEGE PRESIDENT'S WELCOME
The "M" Handbook serves a real pur-
pose to "new" and "old" students and
faculty alike. I am glad to speak
through its pag-es a word of friendship
from the College to every person en-
rolled this year.
Maryville is a noble College in its
history, in its campus life and fellow-
ship, in its scholarship standards and
achievements, in its religious and
moral spirit and program, in its
ideals and expressions of service. It
is one of the oldest and one of the best
colleges in America, ft offers to every
student a genuine affection and the
benefits of a rich heritage and a strong
faculty, made possible by the sacri-
fices and generosity of many altruistic
men and women.
May this year be for all of us here
one of growing gratitude, loyalty, joy,
RALPH WALDO LLOYD,
President of Maryville College.
DR. RALPH WALDO LLOYD
President of Maryville College
Because you are soon to become real
Maryvillians you are interested in
knowing all you can about the campus,
clubs, school activities, the town, and
customs of Maryville. You have prob-
ably read the formal pages of the
catalogue from cover to cover, but it
is written by the faculty to help you
plan your curriculum and school activi-
ties and is not a special guide to help
you m the first puzzling days of your
The Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. have
co-operated in publishing the hand-
book and are sending it to you with
the greetings of both organizations.
We have w^ritten it carefully with the
hope that it will be a help in answer-
ing the questions and problems that
will come to you in the fall. We sin-
cerely hope this book will start you
off into a successful and happy year.
AFTER KNOXVILLE AVHAT?
It is probably a good thing- when
you are buying your ticket to buy it
just to Knoxville. When you get to
Knoxville, whether you come on bus
or train, the first thing to do is to
look around for a boy or girl with a
Maryville College badge on. They will
be members of the Y. M. C. A. or Y. W.
C. A. who are there especially to help
you get to Maryville. If, however, you
should miss one of them; if you come
on the train, take a taxi to the bus
terminal on Gay street and there buy a
ticket to Maryville. Be sure that your
trunk is rechecked.
When the bus leaves know that your
journey is almost over, for Maryville
is just sixteen miles from Knoxville.
If the bus is full of students the driver
will probably come on to the hill. If
he does not, when you get to the bus
station, take a taxi to the College, and
if you are a girl direct the driver to
Baldwin Hall, and if a boy to Carnegie
When you reach the dormitory hunt
up the matron or proctor and find your
room number. When you have gotten
cleaned up go out on the campus,
where you will see some students at a
table taking trunk checks. Give them
your check and your trunk will be
taken care of immediately. When this
i.s done you are free to roam around
and become acquainted. Make friends
as ouickly as nossible and soon that
queer, homesick feeling will wear off.
You will, no doubt, be asked fre-
quently before your arrival, "What and
where is Maryville?" Maryville is the
county seat of Blount County, Tennes-
see, and is located at the foot of the
Chilhowee Mountains, sixteen miles
south of Knoxville. It is reached from
Knoxville by busses. The population
of the town, together with that of the
adjacent community of Alcoa, is ap-
proximately 10,000 inhabitants.
The valley in which Maryville is
situated is called the Tennessee
Valley, the object of recent federal
plans for development. The valley be-
gins at Chattanooga; continues north-
eastward above Bristol as the Virginia
Valley, and north of Staunton as the
Shenandoah Valley, as far as the south-
ern Pennsylvania cities through Ha-
Maryville is approximately 100 miles
from Chattanooga, 200 miles from
Nashville, 300 miles from Cincinati,
400 from Memphis, 500 from Detroit,
600 from Chicago and from St. Louis,
700 from Philadelphia and New Or-
leans, and 800 from New York City and
Miami Beach, Florida.
Maryville weather is not extreme.
The suinmer season is somewhat longer
than is known in the northern states,
and during the fall and winter there
is plenty of rain, with no extremely
cold weather to worry about.

A WELC03IE FROM THE
Y. AV. C. A.
DEAR NEW GIRL:
You've heard it said, perhaps, that
it's not doing- the things we like to do
but liking the things we have to do
that makes life happy. The writing
of this welcome to you works both
ways, because it is a thing we like to
do and because it is a thing which has
come our way to do.
We are glad Maryville is the college
of your choice. You will be glad, too,
for you cannot help but love it as you
gradually find the place on the Hill
which only you can fill.
Are you dreading the first days at
Maryville? Please don't. We are all
eager to know you and to make you
happy. We wiTl be here ready to take
you to your room, to answer the hun-
dred and one questions you'll want to
ask, to show you what to do and
where to go. Just forget any fears
you may have about those days.
As for the Y. W. C. A., we need you
and you need us, so that through the
working out together of our purposes
your life and ours may be enriched by
the deep friendships and experiences
Again we say, "Welcome," and again
we say, "We're glad you are coming."
President of Y. W. C. A.
Y. W. C. A. ACTIVITY
The purpose of the Y. W. C. A. at
Maryville is to make each girl's life
Christ-centered. With this as an ulti-
mate g-oal Y. W. C. A. aims to help
and guide you in your mental, phy-
sical, and social problems.
A carefully planned meeting is held
each Sunday afternoon, characterized
by short talks, special music, and fel-
lowship in prayer. Every year there
is a candle light service for the instal-
lation of the new officers; you will
find it one of the most impressive
services of the year.
The Y. W. C. A. sponsors many so-
cial projects. Among them are: Nu
Gamma groups for the new girls, over-
seeing the annual barn-warming and
arranging the May Day program, the
care of orphans, and the sponsoring of
teas and social functions in the Y. W.
C. A. reading room. You will enjoy
the beautiful reading room in the rear
of Thaw Hall, with its books and
magazines, radio, and kitchen, all for
the use of every girl.
One of the distinctive features of
Y. W. C. A. activity is the "big sister-
little sister" plan. Each new girl is
assigned to an older girl, who there-
upon assumes the role of "big sister"
to the new girl. You will find in your
"big sister" one who will make life
easy for you when you arrive, help you
to solve problems that arise, and who
will, in, a sense, start you off on a
successful college career.

WELCOME FROM NU GAMMA
The Nu Gamma Sigma stands for
New Girl's Society, whose purpose as
a branch of Y. W. C. A. is to welcome
the new girls to College Hill and make
them feel at home with "us. During the
first weeks of school all the new girls
will meet with old girls in small
groups to become acquainted with each
other and to talk over the problems
and difficulties that will face you in
your new environment. Y. W. has been
looking forward to meeting you all in
person when school opens, and it is her
sincere desire that you will soon learn
to love dear old Maryville and that you
will form many sweet and lasting
friendships and happy memories dur-
ing your stay with us. Nu Gamma
hopes you will learn to spell her name
Newness in thought.
Mastery of Problems.

virtue of their influence in student af-

The Council is composed of eight
Seniors, six Juniors, four Sophomores,
and four Freshmen. Of this number
two committees are chosen, the Stu-
dent Faculty Committee and the High-
land Echo Committee.
The Student Council at Maryville is
not student government, but it does
summarize student opinion and works
with the Faculty in promoting desir-
able movements for the advancement
of the College. With the co-operation
of all the students and the favorable
attitude being taken by many members
of the Faculty, it is quite possible that
student government will be inaugurat-
ed in the not far future.

WELCOME FROM ALPHA SIGMA
To every freshman and new student
who is going- to be with us this year,
Alpha Sigma extends the right hand of
fellowship. We want you to know that
Alpha Sigma is interested in you and
wishes to do everything possible to
make you feel at home when you conle
among us. So in behalf of our society,
I welcome you one and all.
The Alpha Sigma Literary Society
was organized in 1882 and since that
time has been a leading organization
on the hill. The fellowship, social -re-
lations, spirit of co-operation and lead-
ership that are derived from member-
ship in the societies play a predomi-
nant part in the life of every Mary-
ville student. In all activities, acad-
emic, scholastic, athletic, and social,
Alpha Sigma has its leaders, who are
well qualified in their attainments.
There is a sense of true sportsmanship
that is evident at all times and which
identifies Alpha Sigma men. Alpha
Sigma hopes to carry on its fine woFk
in every department of college activi-
ties through the quality of men who
select Alpha Sigma for their medium
of friendship, workmanship, and true
relationship. Once more let me say,
we welcome you to our school, and in-
vite you to join our society and help us

WELCOME FROM ATHENIAN LITER-
TO THE NEW FELLOWS:
Welcome to the Hill. Welcome to
Athenian. Let us help you make these
four years the happiest, most memor-
able years of your life.
One of the first thing- Athenians do
at the opening- of the new year is to
help you new fellows to get started.
We do not feel it to be a duty, rather
we deem" it a privilege. Well do we
remember our first few bewildering
days. We'll take you in hand and help
you in your difficulties.
The Athenian Literary Society,
founded in 1868, is the oldest society
on the Hill. Through the years it has
always held a high place in a student's
life. It has been able to do this be-
cause of its achievements, both collec-
tive and independent. Athenian men
have been prominent in athletics, fo-
rensics, dramatics, and other student
To be an Athenian is synonymous
with being loyal, co-operative, and
friendly: three virtues that will carry
you far in life. Develop them during
these coming four years, the most im-
portant years of your life.
When you reach the Hill, pay us a
visit, give us a trial. In the meantime,
a safe journey to the campus.
Sincerely your friend,
FRED K. KIRCHNER,
DEAR NEW GIRLS:
Bainonian welcomes you to the Hill.
Her members will try to make you feel
at home here, and when the first few
days are past you'll feel you've known
them for a long time.
Bainonian Society is the older of the .
two girls' societies at Maryville, hav-
ing been organized in 1875, but that
doesn't make us a bit old-fashioned in
spirit. We make our meetings just as
interesting as possible, and our pro-
gram secretaries are "on their toes"
every minute. We meet every Satur-
day night in Bainonian Hall in Pear-
sons. Our programs are varied and
consist of skits, music, readings, and
occasional programs by non-members.
Our aim is the social development of
our members and we try to accomplish
it through these weekly meetings in
which the girls either take part in the
program or enjoy the fellowship of the
others. We can use your talents on
our programs and think that in doing
so you are aided in gaining self-confi-
dence and social poise.
Twice a year we have joint meetings
with the Athenians. These meetings
are anticipated with enthusiasm for we
enjoy the combined program and the
society of our "brothers."
Bainonian will be glad to see you
on Maryville Campus and she is look-
ing forward to welcoming you to her

WELCOME, NEW GIRLS, FROM
You are standing on the threshold
of the happiest years of your life. In
a few weeks you will enter the portals
of a college which for over a century
has stood for the highest ideals of
scholarship and social relationships.
As members of Theta Epsilon we rep-
resent the latter phase of college life.
Do such words sound sort of serious
minded or "scholarish"? Well — Maybe
So — but here's a little tip — if you ever
want to take part in, or listen to,
dramatics, music, or anything of that
sort just give Theta a chance and with
our brother society, Alpha Sigma, we
will do our very best to show you an
all-around good time.
Last year Theta Epsilon won the
Theta Alpha Phi cup for presenting the
best society play of the year. It is in
such activities as this that we can use
your talents. Weekly meetings, joint
meetings with the "Alpha Sig's," cam-
pus chats, parties, and many other such
things are Theta's contributions toward
your having a well-balanced college
Welcome from Theta Epsilon! And
may we do everything possible to make

Everyone with intelligence realizes
that in every well-rounded life music
should have a place. Maryville has
provided ample means for students to
develop their musical talent besides
regular class work under instructors.
There are five musical organizations,
three of which are choral, and two in-
The three choral organizations are
the Vesper Choir, the Maryville Glee
Singers, and the Women's Glee Club.
The Vesper Choir is composed of forty
voices, mixed, chosen upon tryouts by
the choir director. It serves in the
worship services on Sunday evening
and at daily chapel. The Maryville
Glee Singers is a male chorus of eight-
een or twenty voices, chosen after try-
outs, which give at least one concert
every year. The Women's Glee Club is
similar in most respects to that of the
The two instrumental organizations
are the orchestra and the band. These
afford students who are familiar with
musical instruments opportunity to dis-
play and improve their talents. The
orchestra has a concert once a year
and plays at many other college enter-
tainments. The band plays for the
football games and who can forget the
thrill of attending a night football
game, between halves of which the
band, formed into a large "M" plays
the Alma Mater? Don't forget your
musical instruments when you pack
preparatory to coming to Maryville!

The Ministerial Association (organ-
ized in 1900), although composed of men
students who are looking- forward to a
life of service in any phase of the
work of the church, is organized pri-
marily for those who are ministerial
candidates. The Association holds
weekly meetings of high inspirational
and instructive value; but its most im-
portant activity is that embodied in
four standing committees, which con-
duct regular preaching and pastoral
work in the county prison, the county
almshouse, the McGhee street chapel,
and the country churches in the vicin-
ity of Maryville.
The first February Meetings were
held in 1877 in the old Chapel in An-
derson Hall. The services usually be-
gin on the first Tuesday of February
and continue about ten days.
The object of the February Meetings
is a deepening of the spiritual life on
the campus and a strengthening of the
spiritual attitude conducive to greater
seriousness of thought and action. The
speaker for the Meetings is a promi-
nent religious leader of the day, chosen
long beforehand with the purpose of
the Meetings as the objective in se-

The Student Volunteer group traces
its orig-in back to 1894. It is composed
not only of those who have pledged
themselves to the foreign mission field,
but also of those who are interested in
this form of Christian work.
The group holds regular meetings on
Sunday evenings, at which some phase
of missionary work is considered. Fre-
quent talks by missionaries on furlough
afford valuable and inspiring first hand
information. The earnest spirit mani-
fested in the devotional meetings and
other activities make it one of- the
strongest religious influences on the
Every new student interested in
Christian service should feel free and
welcome to attend the weekly meet-
ings of the Student Volunteers.
During the second week of each year,
the president of' the Y. M. C. A. selects
a cabinet member to organize the new
men into a fellowship club. This pur-
pose is generally accomplished in about
five months, for as a man finds his
place in things, he gradually becomes
acclimated to the new surroundings.
By Christmas the assimilation is prac-
tically complete, and the Fellowship
Club has filled its purpose. There are
no stipulated dues — each club deter-
mines its own, if any.

Pi Kappa Delta
Maryville has the distinction of hav-
ing the Tennessee Alpha Chapter of
the national honorary forensic frater-
nity, Pi Kappa Delta.
This year the provincial convention
was held here, with Maryville being
very successful, her men's varsity de-
baters winning both first and second
place in that field.
This organization will prove to be
of great interest to those desiring to
participate in any phase of forensics.
Theta Alpha Phi
Maryville is honored also by having
the Tennessee Delta Chapter of the
national honorary dramatic fraternity,
Theta Alpha Phi. The entrance require-
ments are rigid, but many of the stu-
dents talented in dramatics, are able
to fulfill them and after initiation
proudly display their pins. All those
dramatically inclined should certainly
enter the Expression Department and
work for membership in this frater-

The Maryville Chapter of Sigma Del-

letes of Maryville.

The college catalog lists all expenses
due the college, but to be a member of
any class organization it is necessary
to be prepared to pay your class dues.
These range from $1.00 in the fresh-
man year to $8.00 in the senior year.
All clubs must charge small fees in or-
der to have their pictures in the annual

So, come to Maryville expecting to be
a member of several clubs, and above
all, a loyal member of your class.
The Chilhowean is the college year-
book, and is puDlished each year Dy
the Junior Class. The book includes
pictures of students, clubs, teams, and

friends it will become a treasured pos-
session. It comes off the press in May
and is available after all bills have been
paid. You should make reservation for
your Chilhowean in September.

WHAT YOU CAN DO
As a freshman you should associate
yourself with some extra curriculum
work, both for the personal benefit
w'hich you will derive therefrom and
for the service which you will thereby
render to your class and to your col-
leg-e at large. Following is a list of
the activities in which you may partici-
pate. Select wisely. It is better to do
well in a few activities than to dabble
in many. Always remember that your

THE ALMA MATER
Where Chilhowee's lofty mountains,
Pierce the southern blue,
Proudly stands our Alma Mater,
Noble, grand, and true.
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.
Chorus after each stanza:
Orange, garnet, float forever,
Ensign of our hill!
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater!
Hail to Maryville.
Note: — An erect standing position
and an uncovered head are prerequisite
to a respectful attitude toward the
Alma Mater at a time when it is being

MAJOR VARSITY SPORTS
For a number of years Maryville has
been noted for its splendid football
teams, produced under the joint tutor-
age of Coaches Honaker and Thrower.
The Smoky Mountain Conference Cham-
pionship is no longer a novelty to
Maryville football teams. Participants
in Maryville athletics play the game for
the love of playing and not for mone-
This coming- year will see openings
for a number of new aspirants on the
football squad, and if you desire to
participate you will have an excellent
opportunity to work under two of the
finest coaches in the South.
Basketball is second only to football
in rank at Maryville, and the teams
have also been frequent holders of the
Smoky Mountain Conference Champion-
ship. Last year's team was composed
of almost entirely all new men and
this year's line-up will have several
openings for those willing to apply
themselves earnestly, and who possess
a medium amount of ability. If you
have played basketball in high school
and desire to continue your athletic
career, come to Maryville prepared to
begin practice at the first call and con-
tinue throughout the season. If you
are not good enough the first year your
persistency will be rewarded.
46 Maryville College
Maryville's baseball teams have been
state champions a number of times. In
keen competition with such universities
as Vanderbilt, they have been able to
uphold the honor of Maryville College
very effectively. Acquiring a position
on the college baseball team is one of
the most difficult feats facing the new
student, and if the student is success-
fvil it is one of which he may well be
proud, and he is a member of one of
the best amateur ball clubs in the
Last year was no exception to ' the
u.sual success for records turned in for
Maryville track teams. In competition
with schools of their own size Mary-
ville amassed very one-sided scores.
Several of the greatest track men that
the South has ever produced have been
coached by Thrower, and last year saw
the graduation of Maryville's greatest
The Maryville track records are in-
cluded in this book, and if there are
any who feel that you may be able to

Prof. Thrower, no matter how good
you are when you come, you are bound
MINOR VARSITY SPORTS
For the past three years the Mary-
ville wrestling" squad has held the
state wrestling- championship. The
men of might who represent the Col-
leg-e in this sport are given excellent
training and advice by the coach. Last
year, as for eight years, the squad has
been very successful, and it is an honor
to be able to land a position on the
Maryville wrestling team.
No College is complete without its
tennis courts, and Maryville is a leader
in this respect. This year three new
courts were completed, and add much
to the attractiveness of the campus be-
sides serving as recreation centers for
a large number of the students. The
varsity team has just closed a most
successful season and as several of the
players are graduating, it is an oppor-
tune time for new students to try out
for the team.
Swimming has been allowed to wane
in importance at Maryville for the past
few years, due to the poor condition of
the pool. This year, however, the pool
has been repaired and a purifier in-
stalled which makes it one of the best
College pools to be found. The team
this year was composed entirely of new
men and will need more experienced
swimmers next year. Meets are held
with the various Y. M. C. A. team in
48 Maryville College
Maryville has the distinction of hav-
ing- some of the best cross country
records to be found anywhere. As yet
Maryville does not include cross coun-
try among its minor sports. It is only
necessary to consult the track records
to be assured of the success of Mary-
ville in competition with other schools.
For the past few years intra-mural
sports at Maryville College have been
gaining prominence. There are annual
contests between classes, societies, and
other organizations in basketball, base-
ball, and track. Regardless of whether
you have ever seen a baseball, basket-
ball, javelin, or have ever run, you will
be able to participate and enjoy these
hotly contested meets. The true spirit
of Maryville sportsmanship is well dis-
played in these contests, and after en-
gaging- in one, you will know the type
of athletes turned out at Maryville.
A new nine-hole golf course was
opened this year and for the first time
golf became a popular pastime on the
Hill. The course is being improved
during the summer and will be in ex-
cellent shape this fall. Bring your
clubs, but get your studying done be-
fore using them.
