DR. RALPH WALDO LLOYD
President of Maryville College
As old and new students take up
their residence and work on College
Hill, they may be sure of the inter-
est and friendship of every officer
and faculty member. We hope and
pray that 1935-1936 may be a truly
Coming from many places and
backgrounds, you will find your-
selves soon bound together by loyalty
to your college and her ideals. May
this bond bring new enrichment to
every Maryville man and woman.
Ralph Waldo Lloyd,
President of Maryville College.
The Maryville College Y. M. C. A., in col-
laboration with the Y. M. C. A., presents this
book to you. We trust that we present it to
those who will learn to love this "Hill" as
we love it. It is our hope that this book will
find itself in the hands of one who is ready
and willing- to carry the Maryville traditions.
We know that you are deeply interested
in Maryville College and, recalling our pre-
college days, we feel that you are wonder-
ing what the place is like. In the few brief
pages that follow, it is our purpose to give
you a glimpse of our campus. This hand-
book comes to you from students whose love
and knowledge regarding Maryville College
is unquestioned. You can place full reliance
upon the following pages. Take this book
and use it. It will help you if you let it be
your guide to the cainpus.
Our campus is your cainpus. People here
want to see you succeed. Take full advan-
tage of your opportunities, but remember
that Maryville College is yours to use and
not to abuse. We trust that you will be a
student worthy of the college you plan to
attend. May success and happiness be
THE EDITORIAL STAFF.
GENERAL, INTRODUCTION TO
This general introduction is not to give
you a complete description of our College,
for not even a whole book could do that.
You must experi nee Maryville for yourself
and after you have been here for a few
months you will be as enthusiastic over it as
we are. Maryville has the power of getting
into the student's blood and making all of
its stud.nts ardent advocates of its charm
Maryville College was founded in 1819 by
Isaac Anderson to supply the need for an
educated ministry for the Southwest. The
school continued vv^ith a slow, steady growth
until the Civil War, which closed the Col-
lege for fiv? years. In 1866 the institution
was reopened with a vary small enrollment
which, however, grew very rapidly. The en-
rollment in 1900 was about 400, of whom
only 80 were of college rank. Last year
859 students, all of them of college rank,
The function of the College has changed
with the years to suit the varying needs of
the people it served. About ten years ago
the preparatory department was discontinued
and the College became what it is now, a
liberal arts college providing a cultural
background. Maryville is on the approv d
list of the Association of American Universi-
ties and offers to the student who will work
an education comparable to any to be ob-
tained anywhere in the country.
The city of Maryville is situated sixte n
miles south of Knoxville, Tennessee, and is
the county seat of Blount County. It has an
elevation of 1,000 feet and is one of the gate-
ways to the Gr,at Smoky Mountain National
Park, the newest of the national parks. The
population of Maryville is 5,000, with an-
other 5,000 living- in Alcoa, a twin commun-
ity named for the Aluminum Company of
America, which operates a large factory
From the campus can be seen th.^ heights
of the Smoky, Chilhowee, and Cumberland
Mountains, green in Spring and often white
with snow in winter. Truly the campus has
a beautiful natural surrounding. Make up
your mind now to spend some time in the
mountains, for many opportuniti s will be
offered to you to do so, sometimes for an
A description of the campus itself is dif-
ficult to make. We have over three hundred
acres of rolling campus, including an exten-
sive College woods of pine and fir. On the
campus proper are many cedars and other
evergreens, and in addition hundreds of
smaller trees and shrubs which have been
set out in the past two years. Included also
on the campus is a nine-hole golf course.
Though there are twenty buildings on the
campus they do not give the impression of
being crowded. The school catalogue gives
a sun^marized account of the principal ones,
but do not try to memorize the names or
anything like that before coming down.
After a few days at Maryville you will have
them all straightened out from the Alumni
Gym to "Willard Memorial and be able to
travel around like a veteran.
Maryville still aims to lay a positive em-
phasis on religion and morals. Students are
required to attend Sunday school and
church. Attendance at daily chapel services
is also required. While the College is or-
ganically related to the Presbyterian Church.
U.S.A., It is not sectarian in purpose or pro-
gram, and students attend the church of
their choice. The leading denominations
have churches in Maryville.
There are no social fraternities at Mary-
ville and no dancing, as it is not felt that
they are necessary or in harmony with the
general aims and purposes of the school.
There will be plenty of social activity, how-
ever, sponsored by the "Y," the Student
Council, and various other organizations and
clubs. There are four societies, two for men
and two for women, each of which presents
a short, entertaining program ever Saturday
To give an indication of the activities on
the Hill we will list some of the clubs. The
vocational clubs, mainly for study and fel-
lowship along particular lines, are: Student
Volunteers, Ministerial Association, Pre-Med-
ical Club, Law Club, Chemistry-Physics
Club, Language Clubs, Spanish, French, and
German. There are numerous state clubs
composed of students from the same section
of the country, a Shakespeare Club, and
honor societies for athletics, debate, dra-
matics and scholarship. Some of these
groups are described more fully in later
pages of your "M" Book. The ones men-
tioned hero are not all the clubs. There are
others which will welcome you to their
membership as you qualify and feel inclined
to join. Of course, membership in a club
Is not essential, but it always proves helpful
A distinct feature of the college is the
extent of the country represented by the stu-
dent body. They come from thirty-two
states, as widely separated as Massachusetts,
Florida, and California. Last year three
foreign countries were represented by mem-
bers of missionaries' families. Naturally
there is a considerable variation in back-
ground among these students and contacts
with them are among the advantages of
A brief word about last year's sports rec-
ord is pertinent for we are proud of the
athletic department. Maryville won the state
wrestling championship for the fourth suc-
cessive year; we won the Smoky Mountain
Conference basketball, track, and baseball
titles. Come to Maryville prepared to sup-
port the teams. They will appreciate your
encouragement. Football starts right with
the opening of school in September and
practically all year there are athletic events.
When you arrive in Knoxville, either in
the bus or train station, look for someone
with a Maryville tag. Some of the upper-
classmen will likely be on hand to direct
you over the last lap of your journey. You
won't have any difficulty in finding the way
Then when you land on the campus, mak»
.vour way to one of the information desks
or tables staffed by members of the Y. W.
and Y. M. C. A. Make yourself known to
them and they will direct you to your dor-
mitorj'. Other students will be on hand in
the dorms to help you with your baggage
and assist you in finding your room. You
may be bewildered a little at first, as there
always is some confusion, but it won't take
you long- to get your bearings.
You will be impressed with the friendly
spirit shown at Maryville. There is no haz-
ing or mistr.ating of the new students.
Don't be afraid of asking questions or of
borrowing a sheet or towel until your trunk
comes. The older students have been
through it all before and they are anxious
to help you. The new girls will be especially
taken care of by their "big sisters" arranged
for by the Y. W. C. A. The fellows are not
detailed off as "big brothers," but you won't
find any lack of assistance.
We do not think it necessary to finish this
bri:f introduction wath any general advice
or exhortation. You who are coming here
even for the first time are college men and
women and you can decide thing-s for your-
selves. You will likely make mistakes at
first, but you will Karn in a very short time
to make the best adjustments to college life.
Come to Maryville prepared to work, to
maive friends, and, above all, to enjoy your-

Y. M. C. A. ACTIVITY
"For me to live is Clirist." The T. M. C.
A. is alive. It seeks to serve tlie students
in every way possible to help them to posi-
tive living. The cabinet is made up of rep-
resentative and congenial Maryville fellows
who will help you in any way they can.
The "Y" places proper emphasis upon in-
terclass athletics for those who can not par-
ticipate in varsity competition. Football,
tennis, swimming, basketball, track, wrest-
ling, handball, and hiking are included in
the athletic program.
At the "Y" reading and game rooms in
Bai'tlett Hall you will find a good radio and
current magazines for your entertainment.
Games provided to try your skill and to
amuse you are checkers, chess, ping-pong,
and pool. These rooms are maintained to
make your college life happier; be sure to
take advantage of the opportunities offered
For you new men to get acquainted and
to discover your talents and abilities, a
fellowt-hip club is organized by the "Y" soon
after the beginning of the school year. All
new men are urged to become active mem-
bers of this group.
The Sunday afternoon meetings in Bart-
lett Hall are for all the fellows on the hill.
The programs are vital, short, and interest-
ing. Special music, helpful discussions, and
prominent speakers make these weekly meet-
ings of value to every student. Most of the
"Y" members have an opportunity to par-
ticipate at some time during the year.
The "Y" does offer many opportunities for
you. Get in tho habit of taking part in its
Y. W. C. A. ACTIVITY
Maryville's Y. W. C. A. has, for forty-seven
years, purposed to help girls find satisfaction
and peace in Christian living. Contributing
directly to this aim are the programs of
Sunday afternoon worship services, Nu Gam-
ma Sigma groups. Big Sister movements, and
participation in the East T nnessee Inter-
The program of Y. W. C. A. also includes
expressive activities such as semi-annual
tennis tournaments, production of the May
Day pageant, and a part in bringing Lyceum
artists to the campus. For those interested
in social work there are opportunities to
help in the mission chapels and in the or-
The organization maintains contacts with
wider groups by sending delegates to the
State ' Student Conference and the Blue
Ridge Conf.rence for Southern Colleges and
Universities. It is also affiliated with the
World Student Christian Association.

Joint Devotional Meetings
Usually the devotional meetings of the
Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. on Sunday
afternoons are held separately, but 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 Ridgre 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.
M GAMMA C'HAIR3IAN'S WELCOME

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,-
mittees 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
honorary fraternity Pi Kappa Delta. In the
spring of 193 5, representatives won first
place in both men's and women's debate at
the South Atlantic Convention.
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
Sigma 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 requirenients 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 Honoi-ary 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 Alplia 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
nipmbership 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 combined choral organizations went
to Cincinnati, Ohio, on May 21-24, 1935, and
sang at the Presbyterian General Assembly.
The two instrumental organizations are
the band and orchestra. The orchestra has
a concert every year and plays at many
Besides Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. there
are three other outstanding religious activi-
ties. The Ministerial Association and Stu-
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
cominittees which conduct regular preach-

Chapel, and the country churches in the
vicinity of Maryville.
The Student Volunteer group is composed
not only of those 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 fii'st 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 keeping of health rules.
The Hi-Trail Club is a hiking club limited
to twelve men. Its activities include hikes
to nearby mountains several times each sem-
Home Economics Club
Home Eg 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 tlie use of the tongue, to increase
your Itnowledge of foreign customs, and to
have a lot of fun in the French, German,
and Spanish clubs.
Wherever j'ou come from there is almost
sure 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. Twelve
freshman apprentices are chosen by exam-
ination of samples of their writing called for
by th.ir English teachers.

MARYVILLE ATHLETIC POLICY
In this modern day of education, in which
the nature of curricula demands confinement
and concentration on the part of the stu-
dent, athletics, when sanely administered,
become a vital part of wholesome living.
Maryvill^, we are proud to say, is well ac-
coutered in this respect, for her athletic pol-
icies embody both varsity and intramural
A member of the Smoky Mountain Ath-
letic Conference, composed of nine smaller
colleges and univv^rsities in East Tennessee
and Western North Carolina, Maryville en-
joys the prestige of being the largest col-
lege within the conference. But her direc-
tors arj not content to sit by and enjoy that
chance distinction. Instead, the close of
every college year finds Maryville at the top
of the conference in some sport or another.
During the past year, under the excellent
direction of Coaches Honaker and Thrower
and Assistant Coach Boretsky, Maryville
teams swept through five championships
within the conference and the state of Ten-
ness e. Among these were three — track,
baseball, and basketball — within the Smoky
League, the other two being state champion-
ships in baseball and wrestling. Coach Bob
Thrower's championship grapplers this year
suffered their first defeat in five years, win-
ning the title regardless. These are only a
few of the sporting honors which Maryville
team heap upon themselves every year.
More to be considered here is the brand of
good sportsmanship by which Maryville Col-
lege is known both far and near.
As is the practice in many colleg s Mary-
ville does not buy her sportsmen. In fact.
•M" HANDBOOK 37
so firmly has that glamorous old tradition
of athletic glory been implanted in the
hearts of Maryvillians that her varsity men
frown readily upon the idea of receiving
mon^y for their services. Thus it becomes
more of an honor for the student to win a
place on the team, for since he cannot be
bought he must prove himself worthy scho-
lastically, and, of course, physically.
The men's athletic program is under the
capable direction of Coach Lombe S. Hon-
aker and Coach Bob Thrower, two men who
have given long service to the college and
who have kept in contact with all late de-
velopments in the t chnique of coaching.
You will find that these coaches are at once
genial, just, understanding, and efficient men,
always ready to help YOU develop YOUR
athletic potential to team calibre.
Maryville teams often play much larger
colleges and universities, for it is felt that
valuable experience can be gathered here. In
these contacts it never fails to become evi-
dent that the Maryville spirit is a strong
one to be reckoned with, and that every-
where her teams have gone they have im-
pressed onlookers with their fight.
It may be that you are not prepared to
take part in any athletic events. Be that as
it may, come with at least the idea to sup-
port her teams with that loyalty which they
deserve. Upon your shoulders will rest the
continuity of the Maryville program, that of
a broad athletic value in a Christian College
whose aim is to build character.
Your spine tingles and your heartbeat
quickens when, under the bright power
lamps, the timekeeper's shrill whistle
streams out across the cool night air of
Wilson Field, for then the football season,
the biggest season in Maryville sportdom,
has opened. With the donning of the mole-
skins competition commences in all pigskin
camps around the conference, and often
waxes hot before the season ends.
Intense training starts about two weeks
before the opening of the college year, so
if you are planning to come out, make up
your mind to report as early as possible for
practice. Every year finds a squad of nearly
fifty men working hard for those coveted
eleven positions on the varsity. With Coach
Honaker as head coach and Coach Bob
Thrower assistant, there is plenty of hard
work to be done prior to varsity considera-
tion, but this does not mean that they will
forsake you, if you make on the scrub team,
for the varsity interests. As good coaches
always are, they are interested in you and
what you can do^ whether now or next year.
As has been mentioned before, Maryville
competes in the Smoky Mountain Athletic
Conference, in which her men and coaches
command respect for their consistently good
Let's go, men — out for practice the first
week and show us what you have. There is
a place open on the varsity for you. Are
you going to fill it?
For the past few years, in fact, ever since
basketball became organized within the con-
ference, Maryville handlers of the sphere
"M" HANDBOOK 39
have hovered around the top of the honor
list. Only this last year the Scotties, as they
are known collectively, smashed conference
routine to march through a thirteen-game
conference schedule undefeated. The sport
comes under the guidance of Coach Honaker,
who wastes neither time nor energy in pro-
ducing the most polished machine possible.
Practice begins along near the end of the
football season and together with the usual
long schedule draws the season well on into
March before bringing it to a close.
If j'ou have the stuff and feel that you
can show it, then you're the man Coach
Honaker wants, for conference rivalry is
hot and wearying-. And don't forget, he
wants your good sportsmanshiii as well as
It is said by many people in many perti-
nent circles that Coach Honaker is one of
the best baseball coaches in the South, and
true it is that he has sent his share, yea,
more than his share, of good men up the
long trail to big league baseball. So strong
are his teams that it becomes hot news
around the conference when another team
happens to cinch the crown over the High-
Prospects begin to gather around the dia-
mond about the first of March for pre-season
limbering tactics, the ole sport talk begins
to burble down in the village, and everybody
knows that Coach is about to begin another
march to conference supremacy. A long
schedule is played, many trips are taken,
and everybody is amply repaid in good times
for energy expended.
If you can play baseball. Coach Honaker
wants you, for he must build into his cham-
pionship structures the very soundest ma-
terial he can find.
Tra«k and Field
The college records in track and field
events which you will find listed a bit far-
ther on are challenges to you to come out
and show Coach Thrower what you can do.
One look at Coach Bob and you will under-
stand why he is so well liked by his men,
why he builds every year conference cham-
pions, and why he still holds the college
record for the shot put. One thing is cer-
tain; he never asks a man to do on the track
or field what he cannot do himself.
Track practice gets under way about the
middle of March and holds sway until the
first week or two in May. The schedule
calls for six or more meets, among which
is the state track and field meet and the
Smoky Mountain Conference meet, which
was held at Maryville last year, and which
will be held at Lincoln Memorial University
Coach Thrower offers a great many de-
partments in which you may be able to dis-
play skill. We'll be watching for you.
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. G. 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 al'ways 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 wield 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.
LETTERS AND MONOGRAMS
Football: Garnet sweater bearing garnet
letter "M" S inches by 8 inches.
Basketball: Garnet sweater bearing garnet
letter "M" 6 inches by 6 inches.
Baseball: Garnet sweater beaming garnet
letter "M" 7 inches by 7 inches.

The letter for women's athletics is more

sists of an "M" and a "C" superimposed
upon each other.
THE WEARING OF MARYVILLE
Maryville letters and sweaters are to be
worn only by those who have won them in
the various sports. Those winning letters
will be so designated by the coaches. Any
violation of this rule is frowned upon by
students and faculty. 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 j^ou 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. Anj'one is proud to
wear a Maryville "M".
Point System of Athletic Awards
