DR. RALPH WALDO LLOYD
President of Maryville College
September is a time for two kinds of
welcome to be extended by Mary-
ville College: one to old students
returning to meet friends and to
walk familiar paths; one to new
students, many of whom wonder
what the place, the people, and the
life will be.
I am happy to extend both of these
welcomes on this page. May the
college year of 1937-1938 become a
year of growth for all who live and
study near "Chilhowee's lofty moun-
Ralph Waldo Lloyd,
President of Maryville College.
THE EDITORIAL PREFACE
We of the Editorial Staff take pleasure
in doing our part to malce you more fa-
miliar with the campus life of Maryville.
The Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. pub-
lish this book as a part of their activities
on the "Hill." Our efforts to give you help
are only a manifestation of the Maryville
attitude toward freshmen. You will find that
upper-classmen are anxious to help you as
much as they can. This is but a small part
of the spirit of the college which we have
learned to love and which we hope you will
learn to love.
The information on the following pages
has been considered essential to a thorough
understanding of the college. For that rea-
son we suggest that you read it well. Know-
ing a few of these facts will relieve that
somewhat lost feeling always felt in a new
As we try to help, we remind you that
you must do your share of the work, and
your share is the largest. The pride we have
in calling Maryville our college you will
soon understand as you call it your college
We wish you as much happiness and suc-
cess as you desire in the coming year.
THE EDITORIAL STAFF.
GENERAL INTRODUCTION TO
AVhen one has really come to know Mary-
ville by experience any words that might
be used in describing it seem vain and in-
adequate. There is something about Mary-
ville that captivates the affection of even
the most self-complacent students. One can-
not stay at Maryville long without feeling
himself affected by that certain something
that some have chosen to call the "Mary-
ville Spirit." What it is we do not know.
We merely know that it exists. So, as we
present the general facts about Maryville,
we do not claim to introduce you to the
real Maryville. You must experience that
Maryville College was founded in 1819 by
Isaac Anderson to supply the need for an
educated ministry for the Southwest. The
school continued with a slow, steady growth
until the Civil War, which closed the Col-
lege for five years. In 1866 the institution
was reopened with a very 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
829 students, all of them of college rank,
Through the years the function of the
College has changed 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
"M" HANDBOOK 11
approved list of the Association of Ameri-
can Universities and offers to the student
who will work an education comparable to
any to be obtained anywhere in the country.
The city of Maryville ic situated sixteen
miles south of Knoxville. Tennessee, in a
section of the country rich in historical lore
and tradition. It has an elevation of 1,000
feet, and, besides being one of the gateways
to the Great Smoky Mountains National
Park, is quite near the recently completed
Norris Dam project of the Tennessee Valley
Authority. The population of Maryville is
5,000, with another 5.000 living in Alcoa, a
twin community named for the Aluminum
Company of America, which operates its
largest factory there.
The territory surrounding Maryville offers
much in the way of beautiful scenery. From
the campus can be seen the heights of the
Great Smokies, the Chilhowees, and the
Cumberlands, green in spring and often
white with snow in winter. You will have
opportunity to visit the mountains many
times. Various campus organizations spon-
sor overnight hikes to these places of in-
terest. Plan to take advantage of these
As for the campus we would venture to
!-ay that there are few more beautiful in
the country. A definite program of campus
beautification has been in progress during
the past three years. Hundreds of small
trees and shrubs have been added to the
campus; a new circular drive is soon to be
completed; and numerous other improve-
ments are being made. Included in the
campus is an extensive College woods of
pine and fir. Here, very near the Collegre
botanical gardens, is a huge, natural amphi-
theatre in which the beautiful and impres-
sive May Day pageant is given each year.
Included also on the campus is a nine-hole
There are twenty buildings on the campus,
the principal ones being described in the
school catalogue. You will find no diffi-
culty in becoming located, however, for
within a few days after your arrival you
will know them as well as the upper-class-
As from the very beginning of the College
Maryville aims to lay positive emphasis on
religion and morals. Students are required
to attend Sunday school and church. At-
tendance at daily chapel services is also re-
quired. The College is organically related
to the Presbyterian Church, U. S. A., but
it is not sectarian in purpose or program,
and students attend the church of their own
choice. The leading denominations have
churches in Maryville. More will be added
about the churches on a later page.
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.
Howevei', there will be plenty of social ac-
tivity, sponsored by the two "Y's", the
Student Council, and various other organiza-
tions and clubs. There are four societies,
two for men and two for women, each of
which presents a short, entertaining pro-
gram every Saturday night.
To give an indication of the activities on
the "Hill" we will list some of the clubs.
"M" HANDBOOK 13
The vocational clubs, mainly for study and
fellowship along particular lines, are: Stu-
dent Volunteers, Ministerial Association,
Pre-Medical Club, Law Club, Chemistry-
Physics Club, and the Language Clubs. Be-
sides these clubs there are the various state
clubs composed of students from the same
section of the country, a Shakespeare Club,
and honor societies for athletics, debate,
dramatics, and scholarship. More detailed
descriptions of some of these clubs will be
given later. There are also other clubs not
mentioned which will welcome you to their
membership as you qualify and feel inclined
to join. Club membership is not essential
but it always proves helpful and worthwhile.
However, don't just be a "joiner." When
you join a club support your club.
One of the advantages that everyone who
comes to Maryville enjoys is the wide con-
tact that is possible within the limits of
the campus. Students come from thirty-six
states as widely separated as Massachu-
setts, Florida, and California. Last year
two foreign countries were represented,
chiefly by members of missionaries' families.
The enlarged vision, the more sympathetic
understanding, and the new interests gained
by these contacts are among the many
values found at Maryville.
A general introduction to Maryville Col-
lege would not be complete without a word
about sports records and the athletic de-
partment. Maryville, last year, won the
state wrestling championship for the fifth
consecutive year. The "Scotties" also copped
the Smoky Mountain Conference titles in
basketball, and track. When you come to
14 MARYVILLE COLLEGE
Maryville be a loyal supporter of the Orange
and Garnet. The teams will appreciate
your encouragement. Football starts the
athletic program off at the opening of .
school in September, and athletic activity
continues throughout the year.
When you arrive in Knoxville, either in
the bus or in the train station, look for
someone with a Maryville tag. They will
be glad to direct you over to Maryville.
Then when you arrive on the campus, go
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 dormitory.
There, other students will help you with
your baggage and assist you in finding your
room. There will probably be some con-
fusion, but it won't take you long to get
New students are continually surprised
and impressed in finding such a friendly
spirit in evidence at Maryville. As a gen-
eral thing new students expect to be the
under-dogs, but this is not the case at
Maryville. There is no hazing or mistreat-
ing of the new students. You will find the
upper-classmen ready and willing to help
you in every possible way. Ask them ques-
tions, borrow from them until your trunk
arrives — they won't mind. It's the Mary-
ville spirit. The new girls will be especial-
ly taken care of by their "big sisters",
arranged for by the Y. W. C. A. As for
new fellows you won't be assigned a "big
brother," but you will be "big-brothered".
Now that we have given you this general
introduction we urge you to come to Mary-
ville prepared to make friends and to spend
the happiest four years that you have ever

Y. M. C. A. PRESIDENT'S WELCOME
Greetings to you from the Y. M. C. A.!
We are looking- forward to your arrival in
Maryville, Of course College life is quite
different from what you are used to, and
you will have many problems during the
first days and weeks. We hope you will
let us help you with them, whether they be
big or little. Each officer and member of
the "Y" cabinet is ready to be of service.
College, like many other things in life,
will be of greater worth to you if you come
with the thought of constantly seeking the
best in life, and at the same time of giving
your best. And the Y. M. C. A. can help
you in all this. We firmly believe in the
teachings of Christ as the ideal guide both
in our "Y" work and in our personal living.
The "Y" programme stresses the four-fold
life, and gives special emphasis to the needs
that are not filled by other organizations on
the campus. We hope you will take part in
the activities sponsored by the "Y"— the
interclass athletics, the worship services, the
hikes, banquets, and other events. First of
all is the pow-wow on the Saturday night
after school opens.
Please accept this as a personal invita-
tion to the "Y" headquarters in Bartlett
Hall. And in the meantime, if you have
any questions you would like to ask, write
me in care of Maryville College.
Y. M. C. A. President.
'Let your ligrht so shine .
Y. W. C. A. PRESIDENT'S WELCOME
WELCOME. NEW GIRLS!
We could go on ad infinitum telling you
what Maryville has come to mean to us —
the beauty of the campus, fine friendships,
contacts with splendid persons older and
wiser than we, the fun of it all — but why
should we, when you're soon to give it your
first-hand interpretation? We are glad you
are to become a part of that which goes by
the delightful all-inclusive title of "college
life," and especially here at Maryville!
At fixst you may be a little bewildered by
the strangeness of a new place, new people;
but we hope you will let us of Y. W. help
you — whether to lay the legend of the col-
lege seal, to show the way through the
mazes of registration, or to find Avith you
a quiet moment in one of our worship
We believe that you are needed, that there
is a place for each of you here on the Hill.
Our "Y" emblem itself symbolizes our striv-
ings for the best there is to give to that
place in campus life — growth physically,
mentally, socially, with spiritual growth in
and through all these phases. With such a
purpose we can all work together to realize
our best, and so we welcome you to our
Y. ^V. fellowship and comradeship — and to
CLARA DALE ECHOLS.

\'. M. C. A. ACTIVITY
The Y. M. C. A. endeavors to lead on the
campus in every phase of college life. The
cabinet is chosen with the end in view of
having campus leaders working for the "Y."
You will find that the Y. M. C. A. as a
whole consists of hard-working, progressive
young men with whom you will want to
work or have good timies.
The "Y" sponsors interclass athletics in
football, basketball, baseball, track, and
swimming. Tournaments are also conducted
in handball, boxing, wrestling, ping-pong,
tennis and badminton.
The semi-annual mountain hikes and ban-
quets are naturally among the most popular
features of the "Y" program.
In Bartlett Hall — the "Y" headquarters —
will be found the reading and game rooms.
Here there is a good radio, current mag-
azines, and newspapers. Games including
pool, ping-pong, checkers, chess, and domi-
noes are here for your entertainment.
The Sunday afternoon meetings in Bartlett
Hall are the times when we try to reach
decisions on the vital issues of life. These
meetings are brief, interesting, instructive,
and inspiring. They are featured bj' special
music, prominent guest speakers, and student
discussions. They are the hub of the "Y"
Every year the Y. M. cabinet, along with
the Y. W. Cabinet, spends a week-end "Re-
treat" in the mountains in order to plan
the work of the following year. The motto
this year is "Let your light so shine — ".
Join the "Y" and help us in our work.
Y. W. C. A. ACTIVITY
Maryville's Y. W. C. A. has always en-
deavored to help girls to find satisfaction
and peace in Christian living. Keeping this
main aim ever in view, Y. W. has organized
such movements as the Nu Gamma Sigma
groups, Big Sister movements. Peace Forum,
and participation in the East Tennessee In-
The Sunday afternoon worship services are
planned to give inspiration and help. Prob-
lems of vital interest to all college girls are

Besides the joint activities with the Y. M.
C. A., the program of Y. W. includes such
activities as semi-annual tennis tournaments,
production of the May-Day pageant, social
service work in the mission chapels and in
the orphanage, and various social activities
for its members. The Y, W. rooms are espe-
cially well adapted and equipped for group
events or individual relaxation and enjoy-
ment. All members are invited to use the
You will find that the members of the
"Y" cabinet, the Nu Gamma leaders and
the Big Sisters are sincere, friendly, and

The Artist Series, sponsored jointly by the
Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A., consists of
three numbers each year including musical,

You will want to attend these progranrs, for
you pay for them in ^vith your student
activities fund, and they are of great inter-
est here at Maryville.
Each year at Thanksgiving the "Y's" put
on a barnwarming in the alumni gymnasium.
It's a gala affair and so much fun you won't
think of missing it.
NU GAMMA CHAIRMAN'S AVELf OME
DEAR NEW GIRLS:
May I present to you the old girls who
are eagerly looking forward to having you
with us next year? Emily Post or no, we
must tell you we're glad to meet you. Just
how sincerely we mean that you probably
won't realize until you join us in saying it
to new girls the following year, but we're
going to do our best to show you.
Before you leave for school, you should
receive a letter from your Nu Gamma leader.
Through the small, informal gatherings she
leads the first few weeks, you learn the fine
points of Maryville custom, talk over your
current problems, and become better ac-
quainted with at least nine other new girls.
Nu Gamma, a branch of Y. W.. was organ-
ized primarily for j'our benefit, but our share
enters in. too. It gives us an opportunity
to know you sooner and to learn what to
expect from you. Perhaps, it's just a little
selfishly that we invite you to be Nu Gamma
Wherever you are. New Girl, we say,
"Welcome to 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,-
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 1937, representatives went to the
Provincial Convention at Johnson City. Tenn.
In the competition there they achieved high

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 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
relative 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. Last year Theta Epsilon re-
ceived 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 nearly fifty mixed voices
chosen through try-outs by the choir direc-
tor. In robes and surplices it serves at the
Sunday evening services, and on week days
without the robes leads the daily chapel
The Maryville Glee Singers is a male
chorus of twenty-five voices. This chorus
gives at least one concert every year. The
Women's Glee Club is a similar organization
for women, and has for the past three years
presented a light opera in cooperation with
the men's group.
The two instrumental organizations are the
band and orchestra. The orchestra has a
concert every year and plays at many other
functions. The band is most active during
the football season, and lends color and
entertainment to the games.
Besides Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A.
there are three other outstanding religious
activities. The Ministerial Association and
Student Volunteer Band are organizations
for those interested in the ministry and mis-
sions respectively. The ministerial group
holds weekly meetings, but its most im-
portant activity is that embodied in four
standing committees which conduct regular
preaching and pastoral work in the county
prison, the county almshouse, the McGhee
Street 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 fre-

MARYVII>LE ATHLETIC POLICY
Maryville stands for the well-rounded, well
developed college life. For many years the
College has realized that one must not only
be developed mentally and morally but also
physically. As a result of this realization
Maryville College holds a high rating among
the schools of the southeastern states in re-
gards to athletics. Her teams rank high in
comparison with colleges of similar size
throughout the country. Besides having
inter-collegiate athletics the Y. M. C. A.
conducts a well-developed, highly organized
system of intra-mural athletics for men, and
under the leadership of Mrs. Verton M.
Queener, coach of women's athletics the
women have, what is known as, the point
system. Both of these programs will be
more fully described later.
Maryville is the largest institution in the
Smoky Mountain Conference which is com-
posed of ten colleges and universities in
East Tennessee and West North Carolina.
Although it is not one of the best known
or largest conferences in the country, few
conferences have such a high reputation for
honest and clean sports activity that the
Smoky Mountain Conference has. Hardly a
year passes by that does not find Maryville
at the top of the conference heap in one
sport or another. Only twice in sixteen j^ears
has Maryville failed to win the conference
championship in baseball. During the past
year Maryville was runner-up in the con-
ference in track, and basketball. For the
sixth consecutive year Coach Bob Thrower
led his "Scottie" wrestlers to the Tennessee
state wrestling crown. In past years con-_
ference titles have been won in football and
tennis. Besides the numerous titles that are
won from year to year there has come to
Maryville the reputation for clean and fair
Maryville does not buy her athletes. It
is not deemed wise to commercialize or over-
emphasize the athletic feature of the College
in such a way for then the Maryville ath-
letic reputation of clean and fair playing
would be lost. Those who come to Mary-
ville enter whole-heartedly into the athletic
program of the College in an effort to win
prestige both for the college and themselves.
Places on Maryville teams are won by having
physical, and average scholastic ability.
And to have athletic ability is not enough
for a Maryville College student to be pop-
ular. He must be well-rounded in all phases
of his college life in order to be well liked
by his fellow students.
The men's athletic program is under the
direction of Head Coach Lombe S. Honaker.
assisted by Coaches Bob Thrower and George
F. Fischbach. Their reputation is known
throughout the Smoky Mountain Conference
and the Southern states because of the cal-
ibre and fighting spirit of the fine teams that
they produce. Each of these three coaches
is willing and waiting to try to develop
your athletic ability in his particular sport.
For several years Maryville teams have
been on the schedules of much larger col-
leges and universities. Although she seldom
succeeds in defeating these opponests she
gains experience that is invaluable through-
out the remainder of that season and in the
following years. And what is more than
that — the spectators at these games, or
matches, or meets, are always impressed by
the "Scottie" fighting spirit and the clean
^nd fair playing of Maryville participants.
If you have any ability at all, as you come
to Maryville decide to try out for at least
one of the varsity sports. Perhaps you have
never fully realized your athletic abilities.
Athletes are being developed — and even some
are made — at Maryville each year. And if
you can't, for some reason or the other, try
out for the varsity or intra-mural sports,
give your local support to those who do try
out for them. After all, the Maryville spirit
is what you and the other students make it.
Whether it be on the field or in the stands
show your sportsmanship by being a loj'al
On some Friday night vei'y soon after the
opening of the academic year, the flood
lights of Wilson Field will be turned on, the
"boys" will be out there on the field passing
and kicking the ball around, the campus
will be crowded with excited students and
town people, the band will strike up one of
the old pep tunes, inaugurating the begin-
ning of another football season at Maryville
college. But this season will somehow be
different because you will be there. From
the opening kick-off of the first game until
the final whistle of the last game of the
season on Thanksgiving Day. there will be
plenty of action and excitement on Wilson
Coaches Honaker and Thrower begin foot-
ball practice about two weeks before college
starts and with the coming of new men the
squad gradually rounds into shape for the
opening game with the University of Chat-
tanooga at Chattanooga. About fifty men
enter into competition each year for varsity
positions. The eleven positions are all open.
If you have the ambition and the ability, one
of them may be yours before the season is
over. Report as soon after you come to
school as possible. Put everything you have
into making the varsity, but don't get dis-
couraged if you fail to make it. The
coaches will still have a personal interest in
you even though you remain a "scrub" for
they will want to develop you for the other
three years of your stay here.
Make up your mind to get out there and
show the coaches and the rest of the squad
what you have. Play squarely and honestly
with them and you will find that they will
do the same with you.
Basketball is one of the sports which
really holds the interest of the sports en-
thusiasts throughout the winter months.
Last season, for the first time in several
years, Maryville lost the Conference crown
to Carson-Newman, "the rival," in two hard
fought games. Maryville dropped them both,
one by one point, the other by three.
This sport comes under the direction of
Coach Lombe S. Honaker, who "knows his
basketball." During the closing days of
football season the call is issued, and until
the end of the football season the captain of
the team conducts the workouts. After
Coach Honaker comes out, the squad is
gradually cut down to about twenty men and
then the real preparation for the production
of a smooth, well-balanced quintet is begun
in earnest. A long schedule with various
independent and college teams is then begun
which continues on into March before the
season is finally ended.
Although five of the seven lettermen will
probably return from last year's squad there
will still be plenty of places left open for
you if you have the ability. There will be
plenty of room for improvement. Let us
see you out to make that basketball varsity.
Again, in the 1937 season, the Maryville
baseball team won the Conference champion-
ship. Only twice in the past sixteen years
has the Highlander team failed to win this
title. This is a record that Maryville stu-
dents may well be proud of, but there is still
an indication that the team can be improved
over the past year's team.
Here is a sport that Maryville is known
to produce good teams in, not only through-
out the South but also in such northern
states as Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana. Base-
ball also comes under the able tutelage of
Coach Honaker who is considered to be one
of the best baseball coaches in this section
of the country. Some of the exceptionally
good players who have come under his in-
fluence have gone up to the big leagues to
make good. Scouts are always on the watch
to see what "Honaker has at Maryville." If
you have any leaning towards baseball
Coach Honaker wants you for he must needs
have good material for his championship
teams of the future.
Track and Field
Maryville is widely known as the homing
place for strong track teams. Although the
past season was greatly hampered and
handicapped by the loss of the ace runner
of the team early in the season, the "Scot-
ties" were the runners-up in the conference
meet and placed third in the state meet
against such competition as the University
of Tennessee, Sewanee, etc.
One of the key reasons for the Highlanders
exceptional track teams is the coaching of
Bob Thrower. Coach Bob's record for the
shot put, established when he was a student
in college, has not been broken and it is the
oldest of the existing college records held by
Track practice begins about the middle of
March and it continues until about the first
or second week in May. Among the six or
more meets, is the state track and field meet
and the Smoky Mountain Conference meet.
You may show your ability in any one or
more of the track and field events. Take a
look at those college records, which are
listed on a later page, and then drive at
some of them! Perhaps you feel that you
can already beat some of them. If so re-
port for the track team for Coach Bob will
be able to use you.
MINOR VARSITY SPORTS
As has already been stated, Maryville won
the state title in wrestling- for the sixth con-
secutive year last season. The only defeat
of the year came from a strong North Car-
olina team, that of Davidson. Under the
g-uidance of Coach Thrower the college
grapplers have built up an enviable record.
Each year Coach Thrower takes untrained,
inexperienced men and develops them into
first class wrestlers. You are bound to fit
into one of the eight weight class divisions.
Come out to help Maryville win another
Maryville is rapidly developing-, under the
leadership of Coach Georg-e F. Fischbach. one
of the strongest swimming teams in the
South. Every year meets are held with
such teams as Auburn. Emory University,
University of Kentucky and University of
Tennessee. Other meets are scheduled with
conference and non-conference teams. Al-
though the past season wasn't as perfect
as it could be the team usually gets better
year by year and there are the college
records to aim at. During the past season
seven college records were broken by the
swimmers. That shows what you can do if
you are a swimmer!
Here is another sport that is developing
under the fine coaching of George Fischbach.
Throughout the spring several matches are
held each week, unless they are rained out.
Trips are taken up into Kentucky and all
through Tennessee. During- the past season
several four-day trips were taken and many
trips of a smaller duration of time. Almost
42 MARTVILLE COLLEGE
all of the lettermen are returning next sea-
son but this shouldn't discourage anyone
for last season two of the first three ranking
men were freshmen and several more fresh-
men were on the squad. The college has
only nine courts and these are usually filled
in the early fall and spring months, so if you
want to do . anything with tennis you better
get out there quick.
Because this sport comes in the fall during
football season, it is not under the official
guidance of any one of the coaches but one
of the runners is usually captain and coach.
Interest in cross-country is gradually in-
creasing because of the inter-collegiate com-
petition and the college cross-country
championship. Last year's season was fea-
tured by victories over University of Ten-
nessee and Lincoln Memorial LTniversity.
The cross-country college championship is
held each year between the halves of one
of the football games. The run is five miles
long and the Y. M. C. A. presents the win-
ner each year with a cup.
A great improvement was made last year
in the intra-mural sports program. This
program is sponsored by the Y. M. C. A.
and includes everything from checkers to
football. Some of the other sports included
are: tennis, billiards, ping-pong, basketball,
swimming, track, baseball, etc. Several of
these are conducted not as interclass sports
but as tournaments.
This type of athletic competition is rapidly
assuming a more important place in the
athletic program of the college. Here lies
the chance for you who feel that you do
not have the time or the ability to go out
for the varsity. There is no fear of varsity

THE WEARING OF MARYVILLE LETTERS
Maryville letters and sweaters are to be
worn only by those who have won them in
one of the sports. Those winning letters
will be so designated by the coaches. Any
violation of this rule is frowned upon by the
students and faculty alike. Any loyal
"Scottie'' would never wear a letter unless
he or she had won it.
Any letter or monogram from any other
school, whether it be high school or college,
may not be worn Avhile you are at Mary-
ville. This rule has been violated several
times. Maryville has no way of enforcing
such a rule except by the will of the stu-
dents. We hope your school spirit and loy-
alty will not allow you to break such a rule.
So leave all other letters and monograms at
home and come to Maryville with the idea
of having a. garnet "M" on your sweater in
the near future.
Point System of Athletic Awards
Since the intercollegiate contests have
been dispensed with, the point system has
been adopted. Women are given an oppor-
tunity to participate in every sport, and a
chance to win the monogram, the small let-
ter, or the large letter and sweater. By
qualifying for basketball, soccer, indoor
baseball, and speed ball teams a girl may
win 30 points for each team. Additional
points are awarded for sportsmanship, mem-
bership on a squad, captain or manager of a
team, and perfect attendance. In swimming,
track, tennis, hiking, and aerial dart tour-
naments, 50 points each may be won. High
scholarship adds a certain per cent to the
total of points won. The observance of
health rules may total 25 points for each
semester. In these activities sportsmanship
is stressed as well as skill.
Honors are awarded as follows: 300 points,
Maryville Monogram (MC) ; 400 points,
Maryville "M" ; 500 points, Maryville "M"
