Maryville College DEDICATION It is with a feeling of liumble pride that we place this little booklet at the bottom of the long list of more worthy tributes which have been paid Dr. and Mrs. McMurray. For a number of years the athletic department of the college has had a warm friend in Dr. McMurray. He has been a member of the Conference Board and is always there to back the teams. Mrs. McMurray is one of the most active supporters of the Y. W. C. A. It was in large measure due to her untir- ing efforts that the new Y. W. C. A. Reading Rooms are a reality. She is responsible for the great number of girls given employment in the College Maid Shop. It is to you — friends of all, that the hope of a continued happiness is ex- tended from Your friends, THE STAFF. \ 'M" Handbook DR. AND MRS. McilURRAY TMafyville College 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, and satisfaction. RALPH WALDO LLOYD, President of Maryville College. "M" Handbook DR. RALPH WALDO LLOYD President of Maryville College Maryville College EDITORIAL. PREFACE 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 campus life. 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. THE STAFF. 'M" Handbook BOOK I GENERAL INTRODUCTION TO MARYVILLE Maryville College 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 Hall. 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. 'M" Handbook MARYVILLE 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- gerstown, Maryland. 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.

HELLO FELLOWS: Wondering what kind of human be- ings we really are? Well, most of us are fellows and girls seeking to live clean and wholesome lives; striving to be "loyal to the royal" within reach of us. If you will look for and have your minds open to associations with true friends you will find them here. Most of us will desire to be your friends. "Our Master's mind, our mind's mas- ter" has been adopted as the motto for the Y. M. C. A. for the next school year. We suggest that you think of appropriating this motto as a basis for all your actions on the campus. It may aid you in making many of your decisions. I send to you the heartiest welcome possible — a glad hand of fellowship and the hope that your days at Maryville will be blessed with pleasant associa- tions and good records. I offer to you my time for any possible service I may render; the hospitality of our Y build- ing throughout the year, and an exten- sion of genuine comradeship from every member of the Y cabinet. I pledge to you my attention to any and all your problems. God bless you in all that you strive to do in life and give you strength to attain the highest possible goal. HARRY VAUGHN MATHIAS, President of Y. M. C. A. Maryville College Y. M. C. A. ACTIVITY 1933-34 Scripture — I Corinthians, 13. Song — "I Would Be True." Theme — Our Master's mind — our mind's master. To carry out the words — Body, Mind, and Spirit — in the triangle of the Young- Men's Christian Association, the Mary- ville Y arranged its program to help develop students physically, mentally, and spiritually. After the welcome to the campus, the Pow-Wow in the woods, the first over- night mountain hike and the fellowship of the Christian young men (from more than thirty states and countries), ' one soon feels at home. There is a Fellow- ship Club for new men. Every Sunday afternoon effective worship services, which include devotions, special music, discussion and inspiring talks by prom- inent speakers are held in the audi- torium. Bartlett Hall is headquarters for the Y. In it are the following: Gymnasium, a game room with a pool table and a ping pong table, a reading room with a radio, the Y store, and a small gym- nasium on the second floor used for wrestling and handball. The office of the President and the Secretary of the Y is also on the second floor. The basement is used by the college athletic department. Inter-class athletics are sponsored by the Y. Maryville encourages participa- tion in golf, tennis, swimming, wrest- ling, handball, track, baseball, basket- ball, and football. All students are urged to get mem- bership cards early.

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 we'll share. Again we say, "Welcome," and again we say, "We're glad you are coming." Sincerely, TESS FREY, President of Y. W. C. A. 'M" Handbook 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.

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 correctly: Newness in thought. Usefulness. Good Fellowship. Action. Maternal Love. Mastery of Problems. Attractive Ideas. ELINOR WINN, President of Nu Gamma. 26 Maryville College JOINT ACTIVITIES Fi-ed Hope Fund The annual "Fred Hope Drive" is made for the purpose of aiding Dr. Fred Hope in his work in Africa at the James Industrial School, and is sup- ported largely through the volunteer offerings of the students. Dr. Hope appeared on the Maryville campus last year during a visit to the United States, bringing interesting informa- tion concerning his work in the mission field and expressing the gratitude of the recipients of the funds during the past years. Joint Meetings Although the meetings of the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. are usually held separately on Sunday afternoons, four times a year, twice each semester, the two organizations meet together, com- bining the talent of the two groups in a joint program that is always valu- able to the earnest and interested Y members. Liyceum Course The Lyceum course is sponsored jointly by the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A., and consists of three numbers each year. Some of the best known artists of the world appear on these programs. Last year Iturbi gave a con- cert, and the year before Horowitz played. The programs are both musi- cal and literary. This year you will have the privilege of hearing Kathryn Meisle, The Don Cossacks Troupe, and other noted artists. The cost is in- cluded in the Activities' Fee.

Co- operation with the Faculty and main- taining the standards of Maryville College has been the chief function of the Council. It is ready and eager to listen to any plan for the furtherance of student welfare which anyone may present. 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. 30 Maryville College WELCOME FROM ALPHA SIGMA LITERARY SOCIETY FELLOWS: 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 carry on. Hoping to see you in a few days, I am Sincerely, JESS WILLIS, President. 'M" Handbook 31 WELCOME FROM ATHENIAN LITER- ARY SOCIETY 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 activities. 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, President. Maryville College BAINONIAN 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 Hall. Sincerely, MARJORIE SALMONS, President. 'M" Handbook 3;^ WELCOME, NEW GIRLS, FROM THETA EPSILON! 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 life. Welcome from Theta Epsilon! And may we do everything possible to make your stay here a happy one. Sincerely, LUCILLE SWAFFORD, President. Maryville College MUSICAL ORGANIZATIONS 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- strumental. 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 men. 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! 'M" Handbook 35 MINISTERIAL ASSOCIATION 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. FEBRUARY MEETINGS 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- lection. 36 Maryville College STUDENT VOLUNTEERS 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 Hill. Every new student interested in Christian service should feel free and welcome to attend the weekly meet- ings of the Student Volunteers. FELLOWSHIP CLUB 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. 'M" FIandbook 37 NATIONAL HONORARY FRATERNITIES 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- nity. Sisina Delta Psi The Maryville Chapter of Sigma Del- ta Psi, the national athletic fraternitv, was established during the year 1930. The difficult requirements of the fra- ternity were met in 1933 by three ath- letes of Maryville. 38 Maryville College CLUBS ^Vriters' Worksliip One of the most active clubs on the Hill is the Writers' Workship, for stu- dents of English composition. Members are chosen by election from the faculty and the senior and junior classes, and is on the basis of literary ability. Each member submits one paper a semester for constructive and destructive criti- cism. «M" Club The "M" Club membership is re- stricted to those girls who have earned the coveted college letter. Will .you belong to the minority that make their "M" and become members of the club? Pi Upsilon The Hi-Trail Club, nationally known as Pi Upsilon, is a hiking club limited to twelve men. Its activities include hikes to nearby mountains several times each semester. Home Economics Club The future dietitians, trained nurses, and class A-1 housewives, technical students of food and fashions, have banded themselves together into a Home Economics Club, which fosters the performance by its members of practical projects in their various fields of interest. Chemistry Club The meetings of the Club are char- acterized by faculty lectures and stu- dent papers on current chemical topics. Membership is restricted to those who have studied general chemistry. 'M" Handbook Pre-Medical Club The Pre-Medical Club is composed, generally, of those whose major inter- est lies in the practice of medicine as a vocation and it aims to create a better understanding- of the problems and in- terests of the medical profession of the day. Language Clubs There are three language clubs on the Hill, namely, the French Club, the German Club, and the Spanish Club. All of these clubs are open to students particularly interested in the language, literature and culture of the foreign language club. State Clubs College Hill is full of "state" clubs. There are even city clubs in Tennessee such as Knoxville. The outstanding section clubs on the campus which function for fellowship are the follow- ing: Alabama, Florida, Carolinas, Georgia, Ohio, Mississippi, the Three "I" Club (Indiana, Illinois, Iowa), Massachusetts, the Western States Club, and the Triangle Club (N. J., N. Y. and Penna.). NECESSARY EXPENSES 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 and to finance the seini-annual parties customary. So, come to Maryville expecting to be a member of several clubs, and above all, a loyal member of your class. Maryville College STUDENT PUBLICATIONS Cliilho^vean 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 views of the Maryville campus. The annual is a beautiful book, and when it is filled with messages written by 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. Hig;hland Echo The Highland Echo is a weekly, student-published newspaper. It . is conducted on the same basis as larger newspapers and each week gives a re- port and forecast of all campus views of interest, whether social, religious, curricula, forensic, musical or athletic. Twelve freshmen apprentices are chosen each year upon the merits of their writing. Your subscription to this paper is included in your first semester bills. S. V. \V. N. Bulletin The Student Volunteer World News Bulletin is a weekly, student publica- tion sponsored by the Student Volun- teer Group. The S. V. W. N. Bulletin (located in the Library opposite the call desk) summarizes recent important world news items. Next to the editor's column is an Open Forum for pasting written opinions of students on world events. "M" Handbook 41 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 school work is more important than college activities: Athletic For men — football, basketball, track, baseball, cross country, tennis, wrest- ling, swimming and golf; for women, class teams in basketball, swimming, tennis, and golf, under a point system. Literary Highland Echo Staff, Literary Socie- ties. Mu.sical and Dramatic Glee Clubs, Orchestra, Vesper Choir, class and society plays. Foren.sic Freshman intercollegiate debate teams for men and women. Religious Y. M. C. A., Y. W. C. A., Ministerial Association, Student Volunteers, local Mission work. Scholastic Several departmental and endowed scholarships are annually conferred on students of specified scholastic attain- ment. See the College catalog for fur- ther information. Maryville College MAY DAY May Day is one of the most beauti- ful spring customs ever conceived and the May Day pageant has a place of honor in the Maryville College calen- dar of events. On the first of May the May Queen, a member of the senior class chosen by the seniors, and her junior, sophomore, and freshman at- tendants, chosen in the same manner, each accompanied by a selected escort, walk in a stately procession down' the path in the amphitheatre built for that purpose in the College Woods, with, an accompanying retinue of heralds, train bearers, and flower girls. After the Queen is seated and crowned by her escort the May King, an entertainment is presented in her honor and witnessed by students, and many interested spec- tators from the surrounding towns. "M" Handbook 43 BOOK IV ATHLETICS Maryville College THE ALMA MATER Where Chilhowee's lofty mountains, Pierce the southern blue, Proudly stands our Alma Mater, Noble, grand, and true. II. As thy hilltop crowned with cedars Ever green appears; So thy memory fresh shall linger Through life's smiles and tearS. III. 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 played or sung. "M" Handbook 45 MAJOR VARSITY SPORTS Football 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- tary reward. 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 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 Baseball 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 South. Track 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 distance runner. The Maryville track records are in- cluded in this book, and if there are any who feel that you may be able to equal we challenge you to come out for track. Under the able coaching of Prof. Thrower, no matter how good you are when you come, you are bound to improve. 'M" Handbook MINOR VARSITY SPORTS Wrestling 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. Tennis 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. STvixnniing 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 this section. 48 Maryville College Cross Country 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. Iiitra-miiral Sports 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. Golf 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.

Presbyterian Theological Seminary (Formerly McCormack Seminary) 826 Belven Ave., Chicago John Timothy Stone, President 64 Maryville College MARYVILLE COLLEGE MARYVILLE, TENNESSEE Founded in 1819 Through more than a century Mary- ville College has steadily gained in standards, enrollment, equipment, program, and influence. With 65% of its 800 students com- ing from the Southern Appalachian 'area, the College serves the region for which it was founded; yet with many States represented, it avoids the limitations of provincialism. An- nually many applicants must be turned away. Christian in purpose, history, and program, Maryville sends men and women to strengthen the Christian cause throughout the world and the Church. By sacrificial endeavor student ex- penses are kept astonishingly low, and self-help opportunities are pro- vided. Its endowment is very inadequate for the service Maryville is asked to render.
