President of Maryville College
I write this -word of greeting
with hearty good will.
This issue of the "M Book" will
be used by students and faculty dur-
ing the 1 1 6th year of the College.

I wish to welcome every old and
new student to the opportunities of
the year. May each have health and
joy as he enters into them.
Ralph Waldo Lloyd,
President of Maryville College.
For you, new student, this book is pub-
lished by the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A,
It is our hope you will find in it a spark
of friendliness which will kindle a. fire of
love for Maryville which will grow as you
grow with Maryville. We hope this little
Handbook will give you the intimate touch
with the College that you cannot find in
the Catalogue. We want you to get off to
a good start here on our "College Hill," so
we are endeavoring to bring to your atten-
tion the things we think might be of inter-
est and help to you.
Use this book as your key in the first be-
wildering months of your college life. This
book is compiled by students who know the
why's and wherefore's of Maryville, and
are trying to pass on to you any information
we have found to be of help and assistance
to new students.
So to you, new student, we dedicate this
book. You are the Maryville of Tomorrow.
You are the future Maryville. We have done
our part and will be leaving soon, so to you
we pass the torch and hope you will carry
it on with all the honor of the past.
The next four years will spell "oppor-
tunity" for you.
THE EDITORIAL STAFF.
GENERAL INTRODUCTION TO
New students, we who have spent several
j'ears at Maryville College are convinced
that our college is as good as. if not a little
better than, any other we know anything
about. It is our hope to make you love it aa
we do, and with that end in view, we want
to introduce you to "our hilltop crowned
Maryville is in East Tennessee, sixteen
miles from Knoxville. From the campus you
can see the dusky ridges of the Chilhowee,
Smoky, and Cumberland Mountains. The
town of Maryville and its twin city, Alcoa,
together have 10,000 inhabitants. Your
friends who have never heard of Maryville
may know of Alcoa, named for the Alumi-
num Company of America, which has a
As to our weather, it does get cold, and
it does rain in Sunny Tennessee, but spring
comes early, and it stays warm well through
Founded in 1819, Maryville College for
over a hundred years has been striving to
fulfill the altruistic purposes of its founder,
Dr. Isaac Anderson. Traditions have been
woven into the fabric that is Maryville —
traditions that it is a privilege to have a
part in carrying on. The Maryville spirit is
something we cannot hand you on a silver
platter: it is something that depends not
only on what is already here, but also on
what you bring. The Maryville spirit for
you will be you in your relation to Mary-
ville College. We can, however, tell you our
side of it, give you a glimpse of the tradi-
tional background of the college, so that 5'ou
can begin framing your attitude.
Maryville aims to broaden sympathies,
promote thorough scholarship, emphasize
religious life, and stimulate unselfish serv-
ice. Your contacts from the start will be
broadening-. You will meet students from
nearly every state and some from foreign
lands. You will find people with all types
of backgrounds, with widely varying inter-
ests and experiences. You will find these
people interested in j'ou, in what you can
contribute to their thought and activity.
In scholarship your best of effort and ability
will be demanded. The spiritual emphasis is
represented by required church, Sunday
School, and daily chapel attendance. Stu-
dents may attend the church of their choice.
The denominations represented in Maryville
are Presbyterian, Baptist. Southern Method-
ist, Northern Methodist, Christian, and
There are no social fraternities and soror-
ities at Maryville, and we do not have
dances, but do not feel that these are neces-
sary to genuine college happiness. Our Y.
M. and Y. W., our literary societies, our
dormitory life more than make up for the
lack of fraternity dances. Do not think
there will be nothing to do. Part of Mary-
ville tradition is to keep new students on
the run for at least a week or two to keep
that homesick tendency from developing.
When you arrive in Knoxville there will
probably be old students on hand to tell
you how to get over to Maryville. If, how-
ever, no one is there, you can take a taxi
from wherever j^ou are to the bus station,
where there is a bus leaving nearly every
hour for Maryville. It is a good idea to buy
your train ticket clear through to Mary-
ville, so your trunk can go on over. Some-
one will meet you at the bus station in
Maryville and take you to the campus.
12 MARYVILLE COLLEGE
From a central information bureau on the
campus you will be taken to your dormitory
room. Your room will be, like your college
spirit, what you make it. You may have a
heartsick, homesick moment when you first
see the bare ugly room you are to live in.
But curtains, bedspreads, lamps, rugs, and
pictures can perform miracles on the room —
and on you too while you are busy unpack-
ing and arranging them. You will have to
make a trip to town soon after your ar-
rival to buy broom and dust pan. curtain
rods, waste basket, tacks, and a good many
things that you will keep thinking of as
The first night there will be a Y. W.
party for new girls. Your big sister, if she
does not meet you at the station will be
looking you up to take you to the party and
do anything she can for you. She will
lend you a sheet if your trunk does not get
here in time, though you might try to get
one in your suitcase, because big sisters
sometimes run out of sheets. Your Nu Gam-
ma leader will come to get acquainted with
you and tell you about the first meeting of
your group. Within a week or so the lit-
erary societies will begin their rush pro-
grams. For girls this means a two-week
series of parties, at the end of which you
will make the decision, "Shall I go Theta or
As to the appearance of the campus, it is
commonly referred to as the Hill, and the
Alma Mater calls it "our hilltop crowned
with cedar." Within the last year an im-
pressive wide stone stairway has been built
up to the campus, and a great many new
trees have been set out recently. Another
new improvement is the appearance of a
golf course on the campus. There are in all
eight tennis courts, and there is an excellent
Back of the campus proper are the col-
lege woods. Various organizations have pic-
nics there, and it is a fine place to go for
walks. There are two homes in the woods,
one for so long the only one that it has be-
come known as "The House in the Woods."
It is the home of the college pastor. The
other is the large and beautiful home of
Mrs. Walker, who, since she moved into our
woods, has proved to be a fairy godmother
to the college campus.
Of the buildings on the campus, ivy-
covered Anderson is the most outstanding.
It is the administration building, and you
Avill many times during the next four years
find yourself standing in line before one of
its offices, to register or to pay bills. In
Thaw Hall is the library on the first floor,
and upstairs are class rooms. There are
three women's dormitories, Memorial for
freshmen, Baldwin for freshmen and sopho-
mores, and Pearsons for upper classmen.
Boys, after you get to College Hill, the
first thing you do is find Carnegie Hall and
look for that much-hunted and called-for
man by the name of Mr. McCurry, better
known as Mr. "Mac." He will assign you
to your room. Don't be afraid to ask any of
the fellows for advice or help, for they will
always be glad to do anything they can for
you. About the first or second night after
you are here there is held a group get-to-
gether where you will have an opportunity
to meet all the fair damselr that bedeck our
campus. It won't take long for you to get
into the run of things, but until you do,
every man on the campus will help you
learn the ropes. There is no hazing here at
Maryville. We are your friends and wish
to help you.
When things are finally somewhat settled
• — when you have become acquainted with
your roommate, found your way around the
campus, taken the English placement and
scholastic aptitude tests — and classes have
begun, you will have to begin the important
task of apportioning your time wisely be-
tween curricular and extra-curricular activi-
ties. There will be clubs that you will want
to join. Literary societies and Christian as-
sociations need your co-operation. Some in-
terest in college sports is expected of you.
When you join a club, do it wholeheartedly.
Be ready to take part when asked to. to pay
your dues, and to attend its meetings regu-
larly. However, do not assume so many
extra-curricular obligations that your aca-
demic duties will have to be neglected.

Y. M. C. A. PRESIDENT'S WEI.COME
In a short while you will be leaving home
to come to Maryville to enter upon a new
phase of your life. The "Y" is indeed happy
that you have chosen Maryville College as
your college, and we welcome each one of
you to our . campus life.
Perhaps you are wondering what we are
like, at Maryville. Most of us are fellows at-
tempting to live clean Christian lives. With
your consent the "Y" "will introduce you to
the fellowship of Christian boys and girls
from more than thirty different states and
countries, who will soon make you glad that
you came to Maryville.
We hope that you are coming to college
with a willingness to co-operate, because
the "Y" can help to make your four years
at Maryville a period of character building,
to aid in providing you with a "clean mind
in a sound body." "Seek Christ, for in Him
we live" is our theme for the coming school
year, and we suggest that you make this
your theme, because you cannot realize the
best that is in you physically, mentally, and
spiritually unless you live in Christ.
Please feel free to call upon me at all
times for any services which I can give you.
The Cabinet and the other "Y" members
Avill do their utmost to solve your problems
and to aid you in every way. We invite
you to use the "Y" building for your pleas-
ure and convenience.
May your life on College Hill result in
your living happily and vi^hole-heartedly in

Y. W. C. A. PRESIDENT'S WELCOIME
You may have been a Floridian or a New
Yorker all your life, but if you've never been
a Maryvillian. don't miss the chance! Be-
cause you have still to be one of the stream
of students heading Chapelward of a morn-
ing. somehow sharing each other's moods.
You have still to see Anderson Hall with
all its echoes of another century or to look
out on the campus bewitched by moonlight
or to delight in the blue ranges of moun-
tains to the south.
What I am trying to say is there is a
something pervading the Hill that we hope
you'll find even if you can never define it as
anything more than the Maryville Spirit.
As one girl to another. I carhe to Mary-
ville with all the eager expectancy which I
hope you are bringing too. I don't know
what experiences await you here, but I am
truy glad you are coming. Our Y. W. C. A.,
which is yours too. has as its highest goal
a "full and creative life" for every girl and
if in any degree we can unfold that life for
you we will find real joy in doing it.
With high hopes that these coming days
will be among the very happiest of your

Y. M. C. A. ACTIVITY
"Seek Christ, for in Him we live" is the
motto of the Y. M. C. A. for the coming- year.
The "Y" aims to give you a program of
clean Cliristian living in body, mind and
spirit. It has one aim and that is to help
you. The "Y" is here for you, so be sure
and use it to the fullest extent.
The "Y" turns a great deal of its time to
developing athletic activities for those ^vho
for some reason or other can not go out for
varsity competition. Football, soccer, swim-
ming, basketball, tennis, wrestling, handball,
hiking, track are on the program of the "Y".
If you tire of that, try checkers, ping-
pong, chess, pool or just come to the "Y"
reading room and "gang" with the fellows
as they listen to the radio, read, or engage
in wholesome Christian fellowship.
To help develop the mind and spirit,
meetings are held every Sunday afternoon
in Bartlett Hall. Various programs are car-
ried out. Soinetimes there are speakers,
other times there is discussion, and still
others may be musical programs. These
programs have always proved to be of help
to the members of the "Y" and we hope
you will be able to participate in them and
make them a part of your life here at
The "Y" offers other opportunities for
you, and we hope you will make the "Y"
program your program and help it as it will
It is for you; are you going to make use
Y. W. C. A. ACTIVITY
The most worthwhile thing a new girl at
Maryville College can do toward launching
herself on the nrost successful and happiest
four-year cruise toward graduation is to sign
her name to a Y. W. C. A. pledge card.
An active member of "YW" has a source
of inspiration, an outlet for her ability and
enthusiasm, a feeling of belonging that she
will find in no other organization. The
home of "YW" on our campus is in the
back part of Thaw Hall on the ground floor.
Our quarters there were completed only two
years ago, and we are proud to invite you
new girls to visit them just as soon as you
can. There is a fireplace, an inside bal-
cony, and alcove, a kitchen, a radio, a magr
azine rack, and a small circulating library.
Here in our rooms we have our Sunday aft-
ernoon meetings, in which we enjoy the
fellowship with each other and feel a more
intimate relationship with God.
We have our fingers in a good many cam-
pus pies. You can see from the list of cabi-
net positions the range and nature of "YW"
work. Perhaps its most spectacular activity
is the May Day fete. A May Queen, elected
from and by the Senior Class, is escorted
by attendants from each class down the
wooded slopes of the natural amphitheatre
in the college woods, across a rustic bridge
to the natural stage, where she is crowned
and rules over a pageant in which several
hundred students take part.
Joint Devotional Meetings
Usually the devotional meetings of the
T. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. on Sunday
afternoons are held separately, taut at vari-
ous times joint meetings are held, in the
conduct of which both organizations co-
operate. The programs of these joint meet-
ings are of a special character, and are very
Fred Hope Drives
This drive is not carried on by the "Y's",
but is carried on by all the students of the
school and we thought best to bring this
to your attention. Fred Hope was a student
at Maryville some years ago, but now he is
in Africa, and each year a volunteer offer-
ing is taken up by the school for Fred Hope
and his work.
Blue Ridge Conferences
Each spring, following commencement, a
conference of Southern college Y. M. C. A.'s
and Y. W. C. A.'s is held at Blue Ridge,
North Carolina. The two organizations on
College Hill regularly send delegates to these
The Artist Series
The Artist Series, sponsored jointly by the
Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A., consists of
about four numbers each year, including
musical, literary, or other cultural enter-
tainment. You will want to attend these
programs, for you pay for them in with your
student activities fund, and they are of
great interest here at Maryville.
Once a year the alumni gymnasium is the
scene of a tremendous circus, put on jointly
by the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. It's
fun, and we are sure you will want to be
in the circus or at least see it.
NU GAMMA CHAIRMAN'S WELCOME
DEAR NEW GIRLS:
New -Gamma Sigma is the part of the Y.
W. C. A. that is specifically yours from the
start. You will be assigned to a Nu Gamma
leader as soon as your name is registered in
the office. This leader will write to you dur-
ing the summer if your application is ac-
cepted early enough, and she will be among
the first to greet you when you arrive next
fall. You will meet with her in a sinall
group of new p-irls, once a week for a month
or two. In these meetings you will become
acquainted with other new girls and be led
in worthw^hile discussions of college life,
what you can hope to get out of it, and
what you will be expected to put into it.
Y. W. tries through Nu Gamma to show
new girls just how much we really do want
you, and to help you find at Maryville the
happiness we have found through our asso-
ciation with Y. W. C. A. Nu Gamma is an
informal type of organization. Its group
discussions are outlined to help you in fitting
into the Maryville atmosphere.
All Maryville is sending a hearty welcome
to you new girls, but Nu Gamma is particu-
larly happy for its peculiar privilege of
sending you a very special greeting and of
expressing our high hopes for you as you
become a new part of our Christian Associa-
tion at Maryville.

General Student Activity
On the Maryville College campus there
are enough organized activities to capture
the interest and utilize the ability of every
student. To some of these organizations
you may belong by merely expressing the
desire. Some, however, are run on a selec-
tive membership basis, and in still others,
such as the honorary fraternities, member-
ship is a distinction that comparatively few
The Student Council is composed of eight
seniors, six juniors, four sophomores, and
four freshmen. This body is not student
government, but it represents student opin-
ion and works with the faculty in promoting
desirable movements. The members are
elected by their classes as representing stu-
dent sentiment. From the Council two com,-
committees are chosen, the Student-Faculty
Committee and the Highland Echo Commit-
NATIONAL HONORARY FRATERNITIES
Pi Kappa Delta
Maryville has the distinction of having
the Tennessee Alpha Chapter of the national
honorory forensic fraternity Pi Kappa Delta.
At the national convention at Lexington.
Kentuckj% in the spring of 1934, Maryville
representatives ranked high in oratory and
extemporaneous speeches, and made a fine
showing in debate.
Theta Alpha Phi
Talented dramatic students may, upon
meeting certain requirements for member-
ship, be initiated into the Tennessee Delta
Chapter of the national honorary dramatic
fraternity Theta Alpha Phi, located at
Signna Alpha Psi
The Maryville chapter of Sigma Alpha Psi
was established in 1930. Membership is open
to all men of the college "who maintain sat-
isfactory scholarship and command the re-
spect of their associates as athletes and
gentlemen." Membership is earned by meet-
ing the requirements of the various athletic
tests in the presence of a responsible com-
mittee. The object of the society is the en-
couragement of the moral, physical, and
mental development and training among col-
Local Honorary Fraternity-
Alpha Gamma Sigma was organized in the
spring of 1934, for the purpose of motivat-
ing high scholarship among students. Its
requirements are equal to those of Phi Beta
Kappa, Ten per cent of the graduating
class may be admitted provided the mem-
bers have a grade point ratio of 6.5, or
somewhat more than a "B" average.
There are on the Hill two sets of literary
societies. Each set consists of a society for
boys and one for girls that are known as
brother and sister societies. Theta Epsilon
and Bainonian are the sister societies, re-
spectively, of Alpha Sigma and Athenian.
All four societies hold regular meetings
every Saturday night. Each has its respec-
tive hall. The meetings held here consist
of short business meetings followed by pro-
grams of varied sorts in which members of
the society are expected to take part when
called upon, in advance, by the program sec-
retaries. Once a semester each set of so-
cieties holds a joint meeting in which boys
and girls co-operate on matters of program,
decorations, and refreshments.
At the beginning of the year the women's
societies sponsor rush weeks to introduce
new girls to the members of each society.
At the end of the two weeks taken by the
rush program new girls are given the op-
portunity to join either of the societies.
Both groups are glad to receive new mem-
bers, and there is a friendly rivalry as to
which one can attract the larger number.
Men make their choices as to society
membership by visiting regular meetings of
There is another form of rivalry among
the societies besides that of membership.
Each society presents a play during the
winter known as its mid-winter. A com-
mittee of judges gives a decision as to the
relatives merits of the plays, and the so-
ciety presenting the best play is awarded a
silver cup. The society receiving the cup
three years in succession is the permanent
owner of it. For the past two years Theta
Epsilon has received the cup.
We sincerely hope that each new student
will find a place truly his in one of the
organizations. Choose the one in which you
feel you will be happiest after you have
carefully considered each. Each society
sends a hearty greeting to every new stu-
The five musical organizations on the
campus provide an opportunity to develop
musical talent. Three of the organizations
are choral and two instrumental.
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 mixed voices chosen
through try-outs by the choir director. In
robes and surplices it serves at the Sunday
evening services, and on week days without
the robes leads the daily chapel singing.
The Maryville Glee Singers is a male
chorus of eighteen or twenty voices. This
chorus gives at least one concert every year.
The Women's Glee Club is a similar organ-
ization for women.
The two instrumental organizations are
the band and orchestra. The orchestra has
a concert every year and plays at many
other functions. The band plays at football
games, making its most spectacular show-
ing- at the night games between halves.
Besides Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. there
are three other outstanding religious activi-
ties. The Ministerial Association and Stur
dent Volunteer Band are organizations for
those interested in the ministry and missions
respectively. The ministerial group holds
weekly meetings, but its most important
activity is that embodied in four standing
committees which conduct regular preach-
ing and pastoral work in the county prison,
the county almshouse, the McGhee Street
Chapel, and the country churches in the
A'icinity of Maryville.
The Student Volunteer group is composed
not only of tjliose who have pledged them-
selves to the foreign field, but of those who
are interested in this form of Christian
work. Regular meetings of the group are
held Sunday evenings after vespers. Some
phase of missionary work is considered, and
frequently missionaries on furlough provide
valuable and inspiring first hand material.
Another religious activity is the annual
series of February meetings. The first series
was held in 1877, and they have been held
every year since. The object of the Febru-
ary 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 prominent re-
ligious leader of the day, chosen long be-
forehand with the purpose of the meetings
as the objective in selection.
Students who show interest and ability in
literary work may be elected to the Writers'
Workshop. The members are elected from
the faculty and the junior and senior
classes. Each member writes and reads
aloud for criticism one paper a semester.
The "M" Club membership is restricted to
those girls who have earned the college
letter by participation in athletic activity
and the keeptng of health rules,
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 sem-
Home Economics Club
Home Ec majors have formed a club as
the medium for the performance of practical
projects in their various fields of interest.
In this club students interested in the two
sciences composing its name meet to perform
experiments in these fields.
The Nature Club is for those interested
in botany, zoology, and related sciences. To
be admitted you are required to take a test
on general scientific knowledge. The club
has carried out two outstanding projects in
the past two years: (1) the tagging of the
trees on the campus with their common and
botanical names and (2) the beginning of a
botanical garden in the college woods. At
its weekly meetings students or faculty
members give talks on subjects in the field
of natural science.
This club is composed of those whose ma-
jor interest lies in the practice of the med-
ical profession, and aims to create a better
understanding of the problems and interests
of this field today.
For students interested in modern lan-
guages, there is opportunity to gain con-
fidence in the use of the tongue, to increase
your knowledge of foreign customs, and to
have a lot of fun in the French, German,
and Spanish clubs.
Wherever you come from there is almost
svire to be someone else from there too. with
whom you can form an organization named
after your part of the country. There is a
club for nearly every state represented by
the student body. The purpose of the clubs
is purely social.
There are two student publications, the
weekly "Highland Echo" and the annual
"Chilhowean." The "Highland Echo" is a
newspaper, reporting campus news and re-
flecting campus thought. Twelve freshman
apprentices are chosen by examination of
samples of their writing called for by their
36 MARTVILLE COLLEGE
MARYVILLE AND ATHLETICS
College and athletics are always linked up
in the same thought. Although Maryville
does not specialize in athletics to the ex-
clusion of scholarship, nevertheless it has a
very broad program of athletics which fits
each and every student. Maryville is not
mercenary in her sports and pays no foot-
ball players, basketball players, or any
other kind of player. Here, athletics is a
sport, not a profession.
Maryville always has good teams, and
more often than not it has winning teams.
Of course we all like to win, but to win is
not the main point, but wholesome sports-
manship is stressed. It is an honor to make
any of the teams at Maryville, for your
scholastic standing must be high and your
The men's program is under the capable
direction of Coaches Honaker and Thrower.
You can't help but like these men, for they
will teach you the game and give you a good
opportunity to prove yourself. There is no
favoritism with these coaches; each man has
the same chance.
Maryville has often played schools far
bigger and stronger than itself, but has al-
ways had the reputation of being a fighter.
Everywhere you go people will say that
Maryville has "fight" and "spirit."
So come to Maryville with the idea of
either seeing or playing with the teams of
the school. It is up to you to have Mary-
ville continue in its program of a good
broad athletic value in a Christian College
whose aim it is to build character.
But remember, college isn't college with-
out athletics; but neither is college college
without scholastic standing. So strike a
happy medium and be a real Maryvillian.
Football is the first sport Marj^ville intro-
duces to you. The training prog-ram starts
with the opening of school in the fall, so if
you are planning to come out for football
make up your mind before you get here and
report as soon as it is practical. Each year
there is a squad of about 50 men who are
all working for those coveted 11 places on
the Varsity Team, so you see it takes hard
work to get anywhere here at Maryville.
But even if you are only a scrub, the coach
is interested in you and will teach you foot-
ball. Coach Honaker is in charge of this
sport and let us tell you he knows his foot-
ball and knows how to teach it.
Maryville plays in the Smoky Mountain
Conference and has had its share of cham-
pionships, but every now and then it steps
out of its class to give the big schools a
lesson in spirit and sportsmanship. This
year they are going up to Kentucky and
teach the boys up there a few fundamentals
Let's go, men — out for practice the first
week, and let's see what you have. There
is a place on the varsity for you — are you
going to fill it?
Basketball is started as soon as football
is over, and is also under the direction of
Coach ' Honaker. A large squad is usually
handled at first, but due to the nature of
the game the squad is pared down through-
out the first few weeks until it reaches
about 10 or 15. But don't be discouraged.
If you are of basketball material, be out
there on the hardwood floor when the first
practice is called, and show the coach what
you are made of. You can make the squad
if you want to — let's see you want to.
There is a long schedule which lasts about
six weeks, in which time all types of teams
are played, but the most interesting and ex-
citing are those played against our strong-
est rivals in the Smoky Mountain Confer-
Now we have come to the sport in which
Maryville is right at home. They say Coach
Honaker is about the best baseball coach
in the South. Let's see you come out and
find out if this is true or not. Practice
starts in March, and by that time you will
be so used to having Maryville have winning
teams that you will want to come out and
make this a winning one also.
A long schedule is played, many trips
are taken; so let's see you in a Maryville
baseball suit when March rolls around next
Track and Field •
Now we really have hit Maryville's stride.
When it comes to track teams. Maryville
just can't be beat. If Coach Thrower can't
make a runner out of you, it's because your
legs must be tied together. The day Mary-
ville is beaten in track — well, we never think
about that. There are about six track meets
a year, one of whicli is usually with the
University of Tennessee, and Maryville has
lost to Tennessee two times in a row now,
but by a few points, and this year we are
out to get them and will get them. Are you
going to be one of the men on the team?
Look at the track records in this book and
see if you think you can break them. If
you can, don't come to Maryville and tell
everybody about it; just keep quiet and
when spring rolls about come out to the
track and break all the records you can
and we will be glad to place your name
any place on the list.
MINOR VARSITY SPORTS
Each year for the last five years we have
been hoping to have a cross-country team,
but have always been unable for the simple
reason that we can find no competition!
But we have reasonable proof to believe
that Tennessee is going to have one next
year and wants to run against us, and of
course we will have a team. Be that as it
may, we always have a good cross-country
race one a year for the school championship.
This race is run during one of the home
football games and has enjoyed a great deal
of interest. A large cup is given to the
winner by the Y. M. C. A. This race is five
miles long and the record is 27 min., 26.8
sec. Can you beat that? Whether you can
or not, let's see you out for the cross-
country this fall.
No sport has more favor with the students
and town people than does wrestling. Coach
Thrower alwajs has a winning team. In
fact, he hasn't lost a match since he took
over the sport four years ago. This season
there were eight matches and of course
Maryville took all eight, even going to far
as to beat Vanderbilt 40 to and the Uni-
versity of Tennessee 35 to 5. There is al-
ways room on the wrestling team for you.
There are eight different weights, and you
sure can fit in there somewhere. Let's see
you out when Coach Thrower gives the first
Tennis and Swimming
Coach Fischbach handles these two sports
and does a very fine job of it. He has win-
ning teams, many trips are taken, and you
can't help liking to work under this coach.
Maryville has made a very good showing
in both tennis and swimming during the last
season, so if you can w^ield the racquet or
paddle the water, let's see you out.
Here's where you fellows shine who can't
quite make the varsity, yet have a little
ability in any one of the lines of sports.
The Y. M. C. A. conducts interclass competi-
tion in everything- from checkers to football.
Each sport counts so many points, and the
class which gets the most points for the
entire year gets a cup. You have no fear
of varsity competition in these sports, for
all "letter" men and men on the present
squads are ruled out of the events, and it is
left entirely up to those who do not go out
for varsity competition.

The letter for women's athletics is more

THE WEARING OF INIARYVLLLE
INIaryville letters and sweaters are to be
worn only by those who have won them in
the various sports. Those winning letters
will be so desig-nated by the coaches. Any
violation of this rule is frowned upon by
students and facultJ^ Any good Maryville
student who is loyal to the school would
never wear a letter unless he or she has
Any letter or monogram from any other
school, be it high school or college, can not
be worn while you are at Maryville. Several
times this rule has been violated especially
by the women students. Maryville has no
way of enforcing this ruling but by the will
of the students. We hope your loyalty to
Maryville will not allow you to break this
rule. So leave all your high school letters
at home and come to college with the idea
of having a Maryville "M" on your sweater
. in the near future. Anyone is proud to
v.ear a Maryville "M".
