Maryville College i 

MARYVILLE, TENNESSEE 

One Hundred and Twentieth Year 
Begins September 14, 1938 



Maryville CoUegre is one of the ian- 
portant church-related institutions of 
America, and seeks to be true to the 
noblest traditions of the association 
of education and religion. Its Direc- 
tors are elected by the Synod of Ten- 
nessee of the Presbyterian Church in 
the V. S. A. 

It is a Christian liberal-arts col- 
lege with the purpose of providing a 
general cultural education. It is not 
a professional or pre-professional 
school, although its courses foi-m 
sound foundational preparation for 
professional study. 

Its fees are deliberately kept at a 
low figure for the benefit of those 
who might not be able to attend 
otherwise. This naakes earnest co- 
operation on the part of all an es- 
sential factor. 

It desires to select its students on 
the basis of preparation, earnestness, 
capacity, character, and co-opera- 
tiveness.

COLLEGE PRESIDENT'S 
WELCOME 

The Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. 

C. A. which publish this booklet are 
two of our most useful organizations 
on College Hill. They represent 
some of Maryville's oldest and 
noblest ideals. At the opening of 
each college year the Y. M. C. A. 
and Y. W. C. A. take a leading part 
in meeting and assisting those who 
come, and I am happy to join with 
them in extending a sincere and 
hearty welcome to every new and 
old student who takes up work on 
the campus in September, 1938. 

Ralph Waldo Lloyd, 
President of Maryville College.

THE EDITORIAI. PREFACE 



If you intend to skip any pages as you 
read this book this is the one to pass up 
for it is probably the least important page 
in the "M" Book. We have included here 
information that is essential for your bet- 
ter understanding of college life and ac- 
tivities. If you read the material care- 
fully you'll not have such a lost feeling 
when you arrive here. 

The Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. 

publish this book as part of the active 
program they have planned to aid Mary- 
ville students. Upper-classmen will be 
eager and willing to help you get ac- 
quainted but we can't do it all, we need 
your cooperation. 

With this word the Editorial Staff takes 
pleasure in passing on to you this intro- 
duction to Maryville College. We wish 
you success and happiness during the com- 
ing year. 

The Editorial Staff.

PART I 



GENERAL INTRODUCTION 
TO MARYVILLE 



10 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



GENERAL. INTRODUCTION TO 
3IARYVIL,L,E COLLEGE 



If you new students know Something be- 
fore you come to Maryville of the location, 
historical background, general facts and ac- 
tivities of the college, you will find it easier 
to adjust yourselves to life here after you 
arrive. The purpose of this introduction is 
to acquaint you with the college, in order 
to lessen any sense of strangeness you may 
feel your first few days here. These words 
cannot be expected to give j'ou a complete 
understanding of Maryville, But we do hope 
that by giving you these general facts. Ave 
may help you to discover for yourselves the 
things of value which Maryville has to offer 
you. 

Maryville College was founded in 1819 by 
Isaac Anderson' to supply the need for an 
educated ministry for the South. 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 
824 students, all of them of college rank, 
were enrolled. 

Through the years the function of the 
College has changed to suit the varying 
needs of those it served. About eleven 
years ago the preparatory department was 
discontinued and the College became what 
is now, a liberal arts college providing a 
cultural background. 

Maryville is on the approved list of the 
Association of American Universities and 



•M" HANDBOOK 



offers to the student who will work an edu- 
cation comparable to any to be obtained 
anywhere in the country. 

The city of Maryville is 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. Don't pass up 
any opportunities you have to visit the 
Great Smoky Mountains National Park. 

As for the campus we would venture to 
say that there are few more beautiful in 
the country. A definite program of campus 
beautification has been in progress during 
the past four 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, oak, and cedar. 

Here, very near the College botanical 
gardens, is a huge, natural amphitheatre 
in which the beautiful and impressive May 



12 MARTVILLE COLLEGE 

Day pageant is given each year. Included 
also on the campus is a nine-hole golf 
course. 

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- 
men do. 

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. 
However, 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. 

The vocational clubs, mainly for study 
and fellowship along particular lines, are: 



"M" HANDBOOK 13 

Student Volunteers, Ministerial Association, 
Law Club, and the Language Clubs. Beside 
these there are various state clubs composed 
of students from the same section of the 
country, 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 
fourteen 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 
Smoky Mountain Conference titles in base- 
ball and track. When you come to Mary- 
ville be a loyal supporter of the Orange and 
Garnet. The teams will appreciate your 
encouragement. Football starts off the 
athletic prograra at the opening of school 
in September, and athletic activity continues 
throughout the year. 



14 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 

When you arrive in Knoxville, either in 
the bus or in the train station, look for 
someone witli 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 
your bearings. 

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 
experienced.

MARTVILLB COLLEGE 



Y. M. C. A. PRESIDENT'S WELCOME 



DEAR FELLOWS: 

In behalf of the Y. M. C. A., may I wel- 
come you to Maryville College. We are 
indeed glad that you have chosen to come 
to Maryville and are looking- forward to 
having you with us. During the first few 
Aveeks, while you are endeavoring to adjust 
yourself, you will undoubtedly be faced with 
many new problems. It is at this time that 
the Y. M. C. A. wishes to be of greatest 
assistance to you. All "Y" men are your 
friends; so be sure to look for them. 

The Y. M. C. A. wishes to provide the 
college man with a well-rounded program — 
the physical, the mental, and the social 
phases of life. The purpose of the "Y" is 
to bring these three views into harmony 
with the Spirit of Jesus Christ and to de- 
velop Christian characters. We want the 
"C" in Y. M. C. A. to be a capital one. 

With the life and works of Jesus Christ 
to guide us, the Y. M. C. A. endeavors to 
aid in the solving of the vital problems of 
life. Keeping this thought and our motto 
"All things through Christ" in mind, we 
seek to present life on the highest possible 
level. 

Please look upon this letter as a personal 
invitation to you to visit me in the "Y" 
office in Bartlett Hall. You are welcome 
at all times. 

Remember, every "Y" man is your friend, 
and the "Y" needs you as its friend. 
Sincerely yours, 
WELDON A. BAIRD, 
President Y. M. C. A. 



"M" HANDBOOK 



Y. W. C. A. PRESIDENT'S WELCOME 



WELCOME NEW GIRLS! 

Most of you are just embarking on a new 
adventure, a year at college away from 
home. We think you were wise in choos- 
ing Maryville for such an experience. Here 
on the Hill, with its crown of cedars, its 
changeable mountain outlook, and its fasci- 
nating traditions, you will find your days 
filled with study and fun intermingled with 
real fellowship. We are glad you are going 
to become a part of it with us. 

The first few days, getting settled, meet- 
ing scores of new people, may be confusing, 
but you will find willing assistants in us of 
the "Y." Call on us whether the problems 
be large or small, whether it be checking 
on lost baggage or finding an opportunity 
for quiet and worship. 

As the school year passes — much more 
quickly than you think it can — you will find 
your individual places in the campus life. 
In the program of the "Y. W." there is room 
for each of you, for we "unite in the desire 
to realize full and creative life" for all, as 
well as for ourselves, as "we seek to under- 
stand Jesus and to follow Him." The 
achievement of such a purpose demands 
your support and cooperation, too, and so 
"Y. W." welcomes you to its companionship 
and to the Hill. 

Sincerely yours, 
HELEN BOBO, 
President, Y. AV. C. A.

MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



Y. M. C. A. ACTIVITY 



The T. 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 times. 

The "Y" sponsors interclass athletics in 
football, basketball, baseball, track, and 
swimming. Tournaments are also conducted 
in handball, ping-pong, tennis, volley ball, 
and golf. 

The annual mountain hike and banquet 
are naturally among the most popular fea- 
tures 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, and ping-pong are here for your enter- 
tainment. 

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 by special 
music, prominent guest speakers, and student 
discussions. They are the hub of the "Y" 
program. 

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 "All things through Christ." 
Join the "Y" and help us in our work. 



'M" HANDBOOK 



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- 
terracial Commission. 

The Sundaj' afternoon worship services are 
planned to give inspiration and help. Prob- 
lems of vital interest to all college girls are 
presented — personal, social, and international 
problems. Both old and new girls have 
opportunity to assist in some part of these 
services, and are greatly benefitted by the 
actual participation. 

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 
"Y" rooms. 

You will find that the members of the 
"Y" cabinet, the Nu Gamma leaders and 
the Big Sisters are sincere, friendly, and 
willing to help in every way possible. Give 
Y. W. a chance to be your friend and guide, 
and join the old members as they follow 
this shear's motto, "All things through 
Christ." 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



JOINT ACTIVITIES 



Joint Devotionial Meetings 

Usually the devotional meetings of the 
Y. M. C. A. and 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. 

Peace Foruiu 

This organization is sponsored by both the 
"Y's" in the effort to make students con- 
scious of world affairs. Through well- 
informed speakers and informal discussion 
groups, an attempt is made to educate for 
peace. 

Artist Series 

Each year the College brings to the 
campus a number of artists of highest ex- 
cellence. Outstanding in last year's group 
were Moriz Rosenthal and John Charles 
Thomas. Tickets are sold to the public; the 
cost to college students is included in the 
Student Activities Fee. The Series is man- 
aged by a Faculty Committee with the co- 
operation of the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. 
C. A. Appearing in 1938-39 will be the The 
Salzburg Choir, Jussi Bjoerling, Metropolitan 
Opera Association tenor, and Walter Giesek- 
ing, famous pianist. 

Bamwanuing 

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 WELCOME 



DEAR NEW GIRLS: 

It won't be long now before we can say 
to you in person, "Welcome to Maryville." 
Speaking what all old students feel, we 
want you new Maryvillians to realize just 
how welcome you are and how eagerly we 
are looking forward to getting to know you. 

From the moment you arrive you will 
become a part of Maryville, and Maryville, 
a part of you. The Y. W. wants to have a 
large part in the growth of that feeling. 
Although Nu Gamma leaders have been ap- 
pointed especially to help you in adjusting 
yourselves to Maryville, remember that 
everyone is interested in you and following 
your progress eagerly. 

Your first few months at college are going 

to involve a great deal of homesickness as 

well as fun and thrills. Let us be friends 

and share those experiences with you. 

Sincerely, 

SARA LEE HELLUMS.

GENERAL STUDENT 
ACTIVITY 



26 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



General Student Activity 



Everyone can find some organized college 
activity to capture his interest and utilize 
his ability. Some organizations are open to 
all; others are selective or honorary. 

Student Council 

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- 
tee. 

A Social Committee is chosen by the pres- 
ident of the Student Council in cooperation 
with the presidents of the upper classes. A 
Pep Committee of two Student Council rep- 
resentatives and five other college students 
is also selected each year by the Student 
Council president. 

NATIONilL HONORARY FRATERNITIES 



Pi Kappa Delta 

Maryville has the distinction of having 
the Tennessee Alpha Chapter of the national 
honorary forensic fraternity, Pi Kappa 
Delta. Maryville participates in the PL 
Kappa Delta National and Provincial Con- 
ventions, and in other tovirnaments. In the 
spring of 1938. members of the debate squad 
attended the National Convention at To- 
peka, Kansas. 



"M" HANDBOOK 27 

Tlieta 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 
Maryville. 

Sigma Delta Psi 

The Maryville chapter of Sigma Delta Psi 
was established in 1930. Membership is open 
to all inen 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- 
lege students. 

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. 

OTERARY SOCIETIES 



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 Epsllon 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



and Bainonian are the sister societies, re- 
spectively, of Alpha Sigma and Athenian. 

All four societies hold regular meetings 
every Saturday night. Eacli 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 
each. 

There is another form of rivalry among 
the societies besides that of membership. 
Each brother and sister society cooperatively 
present a play during the winter known as 
their midwinter. A committee of judges 
gives a decision as to the relative merits of 
the plays, and the societies presenting the 
best play are awarded a silver cup. The 
societies receiving the cup three years in 
succession are the permanent owners of it. 
It was won last year by Bainonian and 
Athenian. 

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 consFdered each. Each society 
sends a hearty greeting to every new stu- 
dent.

RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS 



Besides the "Y's" there are the Ministerial 
Association and the Student Volunteers. 
The ministerial group holds weekly meet- 
ings, but its most important activity is that 
embodied in four standing committees which 
conduct regular preaching and pastoral work 
in the county prison, local missions, and the 
country churches in the vicinity of Mary- 
ville. 

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- 
quently missionaries on furlough provide val- 
uable and inspiring first hand material. 

The Maryville Larger Parish composed

The annual Fred Hope drive is for the 
collection of funds for use in the work of 
an African mission school of which Mr. 
Hope, a former Maryville student, is super- 
intendent. 

MUSICAL, ORGANIZATIONS 



You will be impressed by the work of the 
five musical organizations at the college. 
They provide an excellent opportunity to 
develop musical talent. Three of the organ- 
izations are choral; two are instrumental. 

The most outstanding and selective of 
these groups is the College Choir of forty- 
four voices. Perhaps no other organization 
on the Hill equals the choir in point of 
service rendered to the cultural and re- 
ligious services at the college. It leads the 
daily chapel singing, has part in special 
performances, and as a robed choir sings 
at all public religious services of the college. 
Membership in the choir is most selective; 
it is gained only by rigid competition. 

The other choral groups are the Women's 
Glee Club and the Glee Singers the men's 
organization. Together they give an opera 
each year and assist in the presentation of 
Handel's "Messiah" at Christmas time. 
They also give a spring concert, and furnish 
a chapel program during commencement 
week. 



"M" HANDBOOK 33 

The orchestra is called the Maryville Col- 
lege Symphony; it is composed of about 
thirty-ftve members and its repertoire con- 
sists of overtures, symphonies, concertos, and 
program numbers. 

The Band of aliout fifty members has 
orange and garnet uniforms and is led by 
a dium major. Each year a girl froni one 
of the upper classes is chosen as band 
sponsor. The Band functions princi- 
pally playing and parading during football 
season at the games and pep meetings. In 
May the Band presents a Moonlight Sere- 
nade in the beautiful amphitheater in the 
college Avoods. 

A great many people look forward to these 
various musical activities throughout the 
year; we hope you will do so too, or better 
still have a part in their success yourself. 
Here is what you have in store for you: 

The Band's music through football season. 
The choir's performance at vesper and other 
religious services, every third Sunday is a 
special musical vespers. On December 11 
a two hundred-voice chorus, student soloists, 
and orchestra present Handel's "Messiah." 
There will be a Glee Club opera in March. 
Good Friday and Easter services will be 
held, the Easter Sunrise Service in the arn- 
phitheater. There will be the May Day Fes- 
tival, Glee Club Spring Concert, a Spring 
Symphony during Music Week in May, and 
the Band's Moonlight Serenade. During the 
last week of college on May 28 is the Glee 
Club chapel program and on May 30 the 
Orchestra program.

PART IV 



ATHLETICS 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



MARYVLLIiE ATHLETIC POLrlCY 



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 T. 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 eighteen 
years has Maryville failed to win the con- 
ference championship in baseball. During 
the past year Maryville was conference 
champion not only in baseball but also track 
and finished third in basketball. For the 
first time in eight years Coach Bob 
Thrower's wrestling team failed to win the 
state crown, losing their claim to Vander- 
bilt, whom they later tied in a dual meet. 
The football team lost a heartbreaker to 
the East Tennessee Teachers in the last 
game of the season, after leading in the 
last five minutes of play and having the 



"M" HANDBOOK 37 

conference championship apparently in the 
bag. 

Maryville does not buy her athletes. 
Those who come to Maryville come with the 
understanding that places on her athletic 
teams are open to physical fitness and aver- 
age scholastic ability; nothing else. In addi- 
tion it is true that athletic ability alone 
does not "make" a student at Maryville. 
Well rounded effort in other extra-curricular 
activity and in the classroom is just as 
important. 

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 
and 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 loyal 
"Scottie." 



88 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



VARSITY SPORTS 



Football 

On some Friday night very 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 
Field. 

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 Ken- 
tucky at Lexington. About forty men enter 
into competition each year for varsity posi- 
tions. 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. 



*M" HANDBOOK 



Basketball 

Basketball Is one of the sports which 
really holds the interest of the sports en- 
thusiasts throughout the winter months. 
Last season Maryville finished out of the 
running- for the conference title for the 
second time in five years. The Scotties 
were third, close behind Millig^an and Lin- 
coln Memorial, both of whom had been held 
at bay on the Maryville floor during the 
season. 

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. 

Four of this year's eight lettermen will 
return for the 1939 battles. Three of them 
will be sophomores. There's an opening for 
j'ou if you can get around over the hard- 
wood. Don't pass it up. 

Baseball 

Again in the 193 8 season the Maryville 
baseball team won the Conference champion- 
ship. Only twice in the past eighteen 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- 



40 MARTVILLE COLLEGE 

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 
g-ood 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 
have good material for his championship 
teams of the future. 

Track and Field 

Maryville has had many strong track 
teams. Despite the same shower of mis- 
fortune that hit them in 1937. this year's 
track team easily won the Smoky Mountain 
crown and placed a strong second in the 
state meet, scoring 48 points to Tennessee's 
61. The failure to win this meet was due 
largely to the inability of the ace dash man 
to compete in his usual three events in 
which he would have in all probability taken 
first places. 

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 
one person. 

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 



Wrestling 

Maryville was bounced out of the throne 
room of Tennessee collegiate wrestling last 
season for the first time in eight years. 
After a poor start, during which they lost 
five meets, the Scots came back to trounce 
Tennessee twice by top-heavy scores and 
tie the champion Vanderbilt University 
team. Under the guidance 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 state championship. 

Swdnuning 

Maryville is rapidly developing under the 
leadership of Coach George F. Fischbach a 
strong swimming team. Every year meets 
are held with such teams as Auburn, Emory 
University, University of Kentucky and Uni- 
versity of Tennessee. Other meets are 
scheduled with conference and non-confer- 
ence teams. Although 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. 

Teimls 

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 trips were taken, including the one 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



that swung through Alabama and Mississippi 
and offered stops at the University of Chat- 
tanooga and at Memphis, site of the state 
tournament. During the past season several 
four-day trips were taken and many trips 
of a smaller duration of time. Almost 
all of the lettermen are returning next sea- 
son but this shouldn't discourage anyone. 
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. 

Cross-Country 

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. Previous seasons have been 
featured by victories over University of Ten- 
nessee and Lincoln Memorial University. 
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. 

Interclass Sports 

Improvements have been made 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. 



*M" HANDBOOK 43 



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 
competition for all members of the squads 
are ruled out of the sports. 

Support your class by entering into inter- 
class competition! And it won't be your 
class that Avill derive the most benefit from 
this participation for it will help to develop 
you physically, if you go at it in the right 
way, and you will have a better fellowship 
Avith the other members of your class.

THE ^VEAKING OF MARYVII>L,E 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. Stu- 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



dents and faculty alike expect adherence to 
this rule. Out of due loyalty to the college 
you should wear its letter only if you have 
won it. 

Any letter or monogram from any other 
school, whether it be high school or college, 
may not be worn while 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. 

WOMEN'S ATHLETICS 



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

COLLEGE SONGS 



The Alma Mater 
I. 

Where Chilhowee's lofty mountains 

Pierce the southern blue, 
Proudly stands our Alma Mater, 

Noble, grand, and true. 

II. 

As thy hilltop crowned with cedars. 

Ever green appears; 
So thy memory fresh shall linger 

Through life's smiles and tears. 

IIL 

Lift the chorus, wake the echoes. 

Make the welkin ring! 
Hail the queen of all the highland! 

Loud her praises sing. 

Chorus after each stanza: 

Orange, garnet, float forever, 

Ensign of our hill! 
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater! 

Hail to Maryville. 

Note. — An erect standing position and an 
uncovered head are prerequisite to a re- 
spectful attitude toward the Alma Mater at 
a time when it is being plaj'ed or sung.

'Neath thy cedar grove so fair. We shall 
breathe the mountain air. 
While with merry hearts the chorus we 
prolong.

As the morning sunbeam's light Greets thee 
o'er Chilhowee's height. 
So our tribune. We as freely to thee bring. 
Youth's true homage full and free, We thus 
gladly render thee. 
Dear old Maryville. thy praise we freely 
sing. 

III. 

To thee, guardian of our youth, Faithful 
guide to light and truth. 
We, thy children, bring our songs of 
grateful praise. 
And when we shall leave thy hill. We shall 
ne'er forget thee still. 
Dear old Maryville, the scene of happy 
days. 

Chorus after each stanza: 

Sing we a song of our dear college home, 

Fondly we love thee still. 
And wherever we may be, Fond mem'ry 
turns to thee.

And never know the diff,

As the Scotties go marching along. 
Men of might! Men of fight!

While we niake the Hill merry with song 
Then it's hi, hi, hi. 
We'll win this game or. die. 

Highlanders! Fight to the end. 
Rah! Rah! 
And we won't he done 
Until the victory's won 

For the pride of our hearts — Maryville! 

Bainonlan Song 

Our strong band can ne'er be broken,

Sealed by friendship's tie.

Through all life's smiles and tears;
