COLLEGE PRESIDENT'S 
WELCOME 

Going to college is, or may be, a 
truly wonderful experience. Study, 
play, friends, growth, worship, 
service ! And these things are under 
encouragement of faculty and coun- 
selors who give full time and years 
of training to help. At Maryville 
you will find the results of one hun- 
dred and twenty years of work by 
trained men and women. The Col- 
lege was long ago tried and found 
good. We heartily welcome you to 
its privileges and ask your unre- 
served loyalty and effort. 

Ralph Waldo Lloyd, 
President of Maryville College.

suggest that you read the material care- 
fully. Knowing a few of these facts will 
make it easier for you to orient yourself 
at Maryville.

PART I 

GENERAL INTRODUCTION 
TO MARYVILLE 



10 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



GENEKAL INTRODUCTION TO 
aiARYVILLE 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 you a complete 
understanding of Maryville. But we do hope 
that by giving you these general facts, we 
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 
804 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 twelve 
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 it; 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 
beautiftcation has been in progress during 
the past five 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 



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 net 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 range 
of contacts that is possible within the limits 
of the campus. Last year, students came 
from thirty-one states as widely separated 
as Maine, Florida, and California. Eight 
foreign countries were represented, chiefly 
by members of missionaries' families. The 
enlarged vision, the more sympathetic un- 
derstanding, 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 
Tennessee State Championship title in track. 
When you come to Maryville be a loyal sup- 
porter of the Orange and Garnet. The teams 
will appreciate your encouragement. Foot- 
ball starts off the athletic program 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 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 
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.

DEAR FELLOWS:

From the very first day you will be wel- 
comed into an atmosphere of friendship by 
fellow students who will be anxious to make 
you feel at home. The Y. M. C. A. is in- 
terested in every new fellow and it backs up 
this interest by carrying out a program 
which reaches into every phase of campus 
living. Equal stress is laid upon the mental, 
physical, social, and spiritual aspects 
through the Artist Series, the extensive In- 
terclass athletic program, the annual moun- 
tain hikes and banquets, and the weekly 
worship services held every Sabbath after- 
noon. 

As you begin your first year at Maryville. 
count on the "Y" as an organization which 
exists to serve you and which you in turn 
can serve. We need your help in continuing 
a well-rounded program centered about

presence and guidance . . . "Lo, I am Avith 
you always" . . . 

Sincerely yours, 
RUSSELL STEVENSON, 
President Y. M. C. A.

20 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



Y. 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 j-ou will want to 
work or have gobd 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 "And lo! I am with you always." 
Join the "Y" and help us in our work. 



"M" HANDBOOK 21 



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 
Intercollegiate Christian Council. 

The Sunday 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 
thi.s year's motto, "And lo! I am with you 
alway — " 



22 MARYVILLE COLL.E3GE 



JOINT ACTIVITIES 



Joint Devotional 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. 

International Relations Club 

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 the Salzburg Trapp Choir, Jussi 
Bjoerling, and Walter Gieseking. Tickets 
are sold to the public; the cost to college 
students is included in the Student Activities 
Fee. The Series is managed by a Faculty 
Committee with the cooperation of the Y. M. 
C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. 

Appearing in 1939-1940 will be Myra Hess 
outstanding English pianist, Alexander Kip- 
nis, Russian-American basso, and Zuika 
Ma'lanov and Carin Carlsson in joint recital. 

Bamvvarming 

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 NU GAMMA GIRLS! 

We hope you are as excited about coming- 
to Maryville as we are in having you. We 
are so happy that Maryville is your choice, 
and we know you will learn to love it as 
we do. 

Perhaps j^ou feel that you are coming to 
a strange place. That feeling can't last 
long, for, as we say, "that strange feeling 
just doesn't exist at Maryville." Each one 
of you will have a Nu Gamma leader who 
will be waiting to show you around the 
campus, introduce you to friends, or answer 
any questions which I am sure you will 
want answered. I know you will enjoy the 
"get-to-gethers" which your leader is plan- 
ning for you. Our lives certainly will be 
enriched through the deep friendships we 
will share. 

"Welcome to Maryville," New Girl, wher- 
ever you may be. 

Sincerely yours, 
RUTH CRAWFORD.

GENERAL STUDENT 
ACTIVITY 



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 coop8ration 
with the presidents of the upper classes. A 
Pep Committee of two Student Council rep- 
i-esentatives and five other college students 
is also selected each year by the Student 
Council president. 

NATIONAL. 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 Pi 
Kappa Delta National and Provincial Con- 
ventions, and in other tournaments. In the 
spring of 1938, members of the debate squad 
attended the National Convention at To- 
peka, Kansas. 



•M" HANDBOOK 



Theta Alpha Phi 

Talented dramatic students may, upon 
meeting certain requirements for member- 
sliip, be initiated into tlie Tennessee Delta 
Chapter of the national honorary dramatic 
fraternity Theta Alpha Phi, located at 
Maryville. 

Sig-ma Delta Psi 

The Maryville chapter of Sigma Delta 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- 
lege students. 

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. 

LITERARY 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 Epsilon 



28 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 

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 
each. 

There is another form of rivalry among 
the societies besides that of membersliip. 
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 considered each. Each society 
sends a hearty greeting to every new stu- 
dent.

PUBLICATIONS 



The weekly "Highland Echo" is the col- 
lege newspaper. Twelve freshman appren- 
tices are usually chosen each year by ex- 
aniiration of samples of their writing. The 
annual "Chilhowean" is another student 
publication. 

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 
of forty Ministerial and Student Volunteer 
members has charge of Sunday School work 
in a number of Sunday Schools in three 
counties around Maryville. This project is 
under the Presbyterian Mission Board. 

Since 1877 February Meetings have been 
a part of the religious program. A promi- 
nent religious speaker conducts daily serv- 



MARTVILLE3 COLLEGE 



ices, the object of which is to deepen the 
spiritual life on the campus. 

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 

The five musical organizations at the col- 
lege provide an excellent opportunity to de- 
velop 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. This year, credit will be given 
for choir membership and the choir rehear- 
sals will be scheduled as a class. However, 
an apprenticeship of one year must be served 
before credit is given. New robes of blue 
and egg-shell gray were given the choir by 
the College Maid Shop this year, and were 
dedicated on Easter Sunday. The choir 
leads the daily chapel singing and takes 
part in all public religious services of the 
college. Membership is gained by a rigid 
competition. 

The other choral gi'oups 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. 

The orchestra is called the Maryville Col- 
lege Symphony; it is composed of about 
thirty-five members and its repertoire con- 



**M" HANDBOOK 33 

sists of overtures, symphonies, concertos, and 
program numbers. Tlie orchestra will also 
meet this year as a scheduled class and on 
the same credit rating as the choir. 

The Band of about fifty members has 
orange and garnet uniforms and is led by 
a drum major. Each year a girl from 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. The 
Band contributes much to the beauty of the 
Easter Sunrise Service by its playing before 
daybreak on the Campus, and its antiphonal 
music during the procession to the amphi- 
theatre in the college woods. 

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 10, 
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 am- 
phitheater. There will be the May Day Fes- 
tival, Glee Club Spring Concert, a Spring 
Symphony during Music Week in May. Dur- 
ing the last week of college on June 4 is 
the Glee Club chapel program.

PART IV 



ATHLETICS 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



MARYVELLE 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. Maryville's track team 
won state honors by winning this year for 
the first time the state track championship. 
The baseball team finished in a tie for sec- 
ond place with Tusculum. and Coach 
Thrower's wrestling team finished a suc- 
cessful season by tjang Vanderbilt for the 
state wrestling title. The football squad 
was hit by a series of injuries, and won four 
games while losing five, finishing third in 
the conference after defeating their tradi- 
tional rival, Carson-Newman, in the final 
game of the season. The basketball team, 
the smallest in the conference, finished in 
third place after losing to the conference 



•M" HANDBOOK 



leaders in one of the final games of the 
season by a scant two point marg-in. 

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 Ed. 
Gillingham. 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." 



MARYVILLE COLLEGE 



VARSITY SPORTS 



rootl>all 

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 witli Union College at Mary- 
ville. About forty men enter into competi- 
tion 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 tlie 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 sports enthu- 
siasts throughout the winter months. Last 
season Maryville finished out of the running 
for the conference title for the third time 
in five years. The Scotties were third, Mil- 
ligan College winning the championship, 
despite the fact that she had been beaten by 
the Highlanders once during the season. 

This sport comes under the direction of 
Coach Lombe S. Honaker, who "really 
knows his basketball." During the closing 
days 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 pro- 
duction 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. 

Five of the six lettermen will return for 
the 1940 season, four of them juniors and 
one senior. There is always an opening for 
a good man, however, so if you are at all 
inclined toward basketball, be out there 
when the first call is issued. 

Baseball 

Starting the season with only three letter- 
men, Coach Honaker was able to build up 
a ball club that finished in a second place 
tie for conference honors. This was the 
third time in nineteen years that the High- 
landers have not won the conference cham- 
pionship. This is a record that Maryville 
students are proud of, but there is still an 
indication that the team can be improved 
over last year's team. 

Baseball is a sport for which Maryville 
is known not only in the South, but in the 
Northern states such as Ohio, Illinois, and 



MARTVILLE COLLEGE 



Indiana, as well. Coach Honaker is con- 
sidered one of the best baseball coaches in 
this section of the country. Some of the 
exceptionally good players who have come 
under his training 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 to- 
ward 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. They have won the conference 
championship four out of five times. Last 
season the Scots climaxed their most suc- 
cessful season by winning the Tennessee 
State Chainpionship for the first time. Dur- 
ing the season they also had victories over 
the University of Tennessee, the University 
of Chattanooga, and Lincoln Memorial LTni- 
versity. Maryville easily outscored all of her 
opponents to win the Smoky Mountain Con- 
ference n"ieet held at Johnson City each year. 

One of the key reasons for the Highlanders 
exceptional track teains 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 

Mai-yville regained her position as title 
holder of Tennessee intercollegiate wrestling 
last season by tying with Vanderbilt Uni- 
versity for championship honors, each team 
losing to the other once. Although they 
started the season with many inexperienced 
men, the Scots won five out of seven 
matches; defeating Tennessee twice, Van- 
derbilt once, and the Knoxville "Y" once. 
Each year Coach Thrower takes untrained, 
inexperienced men and develops them into 
first class wrestlers. You are certain to fit 
into one of the eight weight class divisions. 
Come out and help Maryvllle win another 
state championship. 

Swimming: 

Maryville is rapidly developing, under the 
leadership of Coach Ed Gillingham, a strong 
swimming team. Every year meets are held 
with such teams as Auburn, Kentucky, Ten- 
nessee, and Emory. Other meets are sched- 
uled with conference and non-conference op- 
ponents. Although the past season wasn't 
as perfect as it could have been, the team 
usually gets better year by year. 

Tennis 

Here is another sport that is rapidly de- 
veloping at Maryville. Throughout the 
spring several matches are held each week. 
Trips are taken all through Tennessee and 
the surrounding states. Although Coach 
Gillingham was faced with the problem of 
replacing every man on the team, the High- 
landers finished in second place in the con- 



42 MARYVILLE COLLEGE 

ference. During the past season meets were 
held with many schools larger than Mary- 
ville including the University of Tennessee, 
Birmingham-Southern, and Emory Univer- 
sity. Even though most of the lettermen 
are returning next year, there are still 
places on the team for good players. The 
college has nine courts, and these are us- 
ually filled in the early fall and spring 
months so if you want to do anything with 
tennis, report early for practice. 

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 three 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.

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 
win 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 an orange "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 
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" 
with sweater.

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. 

III. 

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 played or sung.

Near Chilhowee's mountain blue, Stands our 
Alma Mater true, 
Dear old Maryville, to thee we lift our 
song. 
'Neath thy cedar grove so fair. We shall 
breathe the mountain air. 
While with merry hearts the chorus we 
prolong. 

II. 

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. 

Our Alma Mater, dear old Maryville.

The Old Pep Song 

We've got the rep, rep, rep, of old Maryville! 
We've got the pep, pep, pep, of old College 

Hill! 
We've got the strength to knock 'em stiff 
And never know the diff. 
For we're from Maryville of Tennessee. 

The New Pep Song 

Here we go! Here we go! 
Down the field to crush the foe. 

As the Scotties go marching along. 
Men of might! Men of fight! 
Orange, garnet, waving bright 

While we make 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 be done 
Until the victory's won 

For the pride of our hearts — Maryville! 

Bainonian Song 

Our strong band can ne'er be broken, 

Sing her praises high; 
Far surpasses wealth unspoken 

Sealed by friendship's tie. 

Bainonian! Bainonian! 

Deep graven on each heart; 
We'll remain unwavering true 

When we from college part, 

Theta Song 

Always to our Theta we will sing a song of 

praise. 
In our hearts we'll learn to love her through 

our college days; 
Theta! Theta! Loyal to you we'll ever be; 
Theta! Theta! Happy sisters we — 
Your memory lingers through the years 
Through all life's smiles and tears; 
Theta! Theta! True we'll ever be.

Maryville College 

MARYVILLE, TENNESSEE 

One Hundred and Twenty-first Tear 
Begins September 12, 1939 



Maryville Collegre is one of the ikn- 
I>ortant 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 U. 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 form 
sound foundational preparation for 
professional study. 

Its fees are deliberately kept at a 
low level for the benefit of those 
who mig:ht not be able to attend 
otherwise. This makes 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.
