DR. RALPH WALDO LLOYD
President of Maryville College
There is both a changing and a
permanent factor in a college's life.
Each year over one-third of the Mary-
ville College student body changes,
with the seniors graduating, a num-
ber of others dropping out for various
reasons, and some three hundred fresh-
men and twenty- five to fifty advanced
students coming in. Every four years
the entire student body changes. But
each class touches the hand of other
classes, and there is in students,
alumni, faculty, building, ideals, and
methods a continuity and permanence
which give depth and strength. Each
student who has selected and is se-
lected by Maryville joins a mighty
fellowship. I am glad to speak for
the college a genuine welcome.
RALPH WALDO LLOYD,
President of Maryville College
GENERAL INTRODUCTION TO
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
As for the campus we would venture to
say that tKere are few more beautiful in
the country. A definite program of campus
beautification 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
Day pageant is given each year. Included
also on the campus is a nine-hole golf
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-
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. Social contacts in Mary-
ville are carried on in an informal and easy
manner. Campus activities are planned with
the idea of wholesome fellowship uppermost
in mind. The four societies, two for men
and two for women, aid in this matter by
presenting a short, entertaining program
each Saturday night.
The clubs on the "Hill" can be put into
three classes: vocational, honorary, and social.
The Ministerial Association, the Law Club,
Student Volunteers, the Pre-Medical Club and
the Language Clubs have organized for study
and fellowship along particular lines. Honor
societies include Forensics, Athletics, Dra-
matics, and Scholarship. There are various
state and other clubs mentioned later for
recreation and social activity.
A genex-al introduction to Maryville would
not be complete without a word about sports.
When you come to Maryville, be a loyal sup-
porter of the Orange and Garnet. Football
starts off the progi-am in September and
activity continues throughout the year.
When you arrive in Knoxville take the bus
to Maryville as this is the most convenient
transportation. If you see anyone with a
Maryville tag, he will be glad to direct you.
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 gii-ls will be especial-
ly taken care of by their "big sisters",
arranged for by the Y. W. C. A. This year
the Y. M. C. A. has begun an "Upper Class
Council" intended to aid and guide new fel-
lows in their contacts at Maryville.
Now that we have given you this general
introduction, we urge you to come to Mary-
ville prepared to spend the happiest four
years that you have ever experienced.

Y. M. C. A. AND Y. W. C. A.
Y. M. C. A. PRESIDENT'S WELCOME
As this book reaches you, you will be mak-
ing final plans to come to Maryville. May
I assure you that a real welcome awaits you,
and I would like to be among the first to
We hope that you will become actively in-
terested in the Y. M. C. A. at Maryville. The
"Y" was organized to fill the need of a
four-fold program of the men of the college —
spiritual, mental, social, and physical. The
program this year will include the weekly wor-
ship services held on Sunday afternoon, with
additional devotional services on appropriate
occasions ; the Artist Series, bringing concert
artists of national fame ; the year-round Inter-
class athletic program ; and a line-up of
hikes, banquets, and other social events.
The one purpose in our program is stated
in our guiding motto for the year. . . .
"Christ, our Cornerstone." It is our desire
to have our program in all its phases direct
our attention on Him, Who stands at the
center of all our being. Such a purpose can
only be realized as you fellows enter into
the work at the College. We need you to
make the Y. M. C. A. the effective organiza-
tion it can be. "Will you not work with us
these next four years, sharing with us your
fellowship, and helping us as we strive to
make Christ our Cornerstone ?
President, Y. M. C. A.
Y. W. C. A. PRESIDENT'S WELCOME
DEAR NEW GIRLS,
Our Y. W. C. A. is glad that you have
chosen to spend your college years at Mary-
ville. We are eager to welcome you to our
campus and to have you become a part of the
Y. W. C. A. We should like to feel that
our organization will become an important
part of your college life.
The friendly, helpful atmosphere which you
will feei at once upon arriving at Mai-yville
will mak'j your adjustment to college easy.
During the next four years you will want to
make many friends and do many worthwhile
things. Y. W. C. A. offers you the chance
to do both. Moreover, it provides a fine op-
portunity for Christian service.
It is with anticipation that we await your
arrival at Maryville, for we feel that we
need you, and hope that you will feel the
need of the Y. W. C. A.

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 you will want to
work or have good times.
The "Y'' sponsors interclass athletics in
football, basketball, baseball, track, wrestling,
volleyball, and swimming. Tournaments are
also conducted in tennis, ping-pong, and
Fellowship such as the annual mountain
hike and banquets are naturally among the
most popular features of the "Y" pro-
gram. An addition to "Y" work this year is
an "Upper Class Council" to aid and guide
In Bartlett Hall — the "Y" headquarters —
will be found the reading and game room.
Here there is a good radio, current maga-
zines and newspapers. Games have been
placed 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 by 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 "Christ, Our Cornerstone." 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 find satisfaction and
peace in Christian living. Keeping this
main aim ever in view, Y. W. has organized
such groups as the Nu Gamma Sigma and
the Pi Gamma Sigma, Big Sister movements,
the International Relations Club ; and Y. W.
participates in the East Tennessee Inter-
collegiate 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 op-
portunity to assist in some part of these serv-
ices, and are greatly benefited by the actual
Besides the joint activities with the Y. M.
C. A. the program of the Y. W. includes
such activities as the production of the May
Day pageant, semi-annual tennis tournaments,
social service work in the mission chapels
and in the orphanage, and various social
activities for Y. W. members. The Y. W.
rooms are especially well adapted and equip-
ped for group events or individual relaxation
and enjoyment. All members are invited to
use the "Y" rooms, which are always open
throughout the day.
You will find that the members of the "Y"
cabinet, the Nu Gamma and Pi Gamma lead-
ers, and the Big Sisters are friendly, sincere,
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 fol-

a number of artists of highest excellence.
Outstanding in last year's group were Alex-
ander Kipnis, Rosalyn Tureck, Georgia Graves,
ank Zinka Milanov. Tickets are sold to the
public ; the cost to the students is included in
the Student Activity Fee. The Series is
managed by a Faculty Committee with the
co-operation of the Y. M. C. A. and the
Y. W. C. A.
Appearing in 1940-1941 will be Hilde
Reggiani, Coloratura Soprano, Alexander Kip-
nis, returning by popular request, and Maur-
ice Eisenberg and Joseph Battista in joint
recital. This year will mark the tenth an-
niversary of the Series, which has featured
such famous artists as Jose Iturbi, Helen
Jepson, Josef Hofmann, John Charles Thomas,
and many others.
Each year at Thanksgiving the Y. W. C.
A. puts 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 N'EW GIRLS
Surely by this time you have learned much
about Maryville College. You have probably
read the catalogue from cover to cover and
are finding yourselves in a maze of dollars,
major subjects, grade points, and honorary
degrees tagging faculty names.
Perhaps you have had correspondence with
your Nu Gamma leaders. Surely you feel
that you already have friends on the "Hill."
It will be fun for you to learn about campus
customs of dress and social activities. You
will be interested to learn that the members
of your Nu Gamma group will possibly be
from varied sections of the United States.
You will have opportunities to make contacts
that will broaden your outlook.
We are looking forward eagerly to meeting
you personally. We want to show you our
campus and introduce you to our friends. We
are hoping Mai-yville College will find a
place in your hearts as it has in ours.

General Student Activity
Everyone can find some organized college
activity to capture his interest and to utilize
his ability. Some organizations are open to
all ; others are selective or honorary. Extra-
curricular activities will form an important
part of your college life ; so we advise you
to choose them carefully.
The Student Council is composed of nine
seniors, six juniors, four sophomores, and
two freshmen. This body is not student
government, but it represents student opinion,
and it works with the faculty in promoting
desirable movements. The members are elect-
ed by their classes early in the fall. Two
committees are chosen from the council, the
Student-Faculty Committee and the Pub-
NATIONAL HONORARY FRATERNITIES
Pi Kappa Delta
Maryville has the distinction of having the
Tennessee Alpha Chapter of the national
honorary fraternity, Pi Kappa Delta. Last
year our chapter had the honor of acting as
host for the national convention of the fra-
ternity, held at Knoxville from March 25th-
30th. Members of the squad have consistent-
ly ranked high in national and local tourna-
ments. Professor Verton M. Queener, varsity
coach, has served during the last two years
as a National Councilman of the fraternity.
Freshman and varsity debate groups meet as
a class, and members are given college credit.

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 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 pi-esence of a responsible com-
Local Honorary Society
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.
In years past there were two sets of liter-
ary societies on the hill. Recently all the
organizations have swerved from their origin-
al purpose, and have become purely social so-
cieties. The girl's societies, Bainonian and
Theta Epsilon, are the sister societies of the
men's organizations known as Athenian and
Alpha Sigma. Each society carries on a
varied program throughout the year, and
adds a great deal to the social activities of

For students interested in modern languages
and in the manners and customs of foreign
countries, there is opportunity to gain con-
fidence in the use of the foreign tongue, and
to have a lot of fun in the French and

from seeing pictui-es and hearing lectures to
giving plays in the foreign language.

Pi Gamma Sigma
The Y. W. C. A. was instrumental in form-

between the town girls attending college and
the dormitory students. Its meetings are held
on week day afternoons, and are featured
by speakers and discussion groups.

The weekly "Highland Echo" is the college
newspaper. Twelve freshman apprentices are
usually chosen each year by examination of
samples of their writings in competitive try-
outs. The "Chilhowean," the annual year-
book, is another student publication, edited
by members of the junior class assisted by
representatives of the sophomore class.
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-
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-
ices, the object of which is to deepen the
spiritual life on the campus.

The five musical organizations at the col-
lege provide an excellent opportunity to de-
velope musical talent. Three of the organiza-
tions are choral ; two are instrumental.
The most outstanding of these is the col-
lege choir of forty-four voices. Credit is
given for choir membership and rehearsals
are scheduled as a class. The choir leads
daily chapel services and takes part in all
the religious activities. The other choral
groups are the Woman's Glee Club and the
Glee Singers, the men's organization. To-
gether they give an opera and aid in other
productions throughout the school year.
The orchestra is called the Maryville Col-
lege Symphony ; it is composed of thirty-five
members, and its repertoire consists of over-
tures, symphonies, concertos, and program
numbers. The Band is the other instrumental
group. It has approximately fifty members
who wear orange and garnet uniforms. Each
year a girl from the upper classes is chosen
as sponsor and a boy drum major is also
chosen. We hope that you will enjoy these
groups next year, or better still have a
part in them yourself.

MARYVILLE 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.
Maiyville 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
If you have any athletic ability at all
come out for varsity sports, for you will
help yourself and the college.

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
The football coaches begin 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
Hiwassee College at Maryville. About forty
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 discouraged 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 activities which
really holds the interest of sport enthusiasts
throughout the winter months. Last season

came back fighting to win every other game

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 conies out, the squad is
gradually cut down to about twenty men
and then the real pi-eparation 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.
Six of the seven letterman will return for

However there is always room for a good
man ; and if you have any talent for the
game, be sure to come out when the first
call is issued.
With another strong Maryville team
Coach Honaker was able to place second in
the conference and rank high in southern
collegiate baseball. However this was the
fourth time in twenty years that the High-
landers have not won the conference cham-
pionship. This is a record that Maryville stu-
dents are proud of, but there is still an
indication that the team can be improved
over last year.

Baseball is a sport that Maryville is known
for not only in the South, but in such
Northern states as Ohio, Illinois, and
Coach Honaker is considered one of the
best baseball coaches in this section of the

have gone up to the big leagues to make
good. Scouts are always on the watch to

Maryville has always had strong track and
field teams. They have won the Smoky

of six times. In 1939 the Scots climaxed
their most successful season by winning the
Tennessee State championship and beating
many large schools in this territory. Last
year the team, after losing the services of
Coach Thrower*, one of the main reasons
for the past successful years, won second
place in the state. At the Conference meet
Maryville doubled the score on the nearest
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.

MINOR VARSITY SPORTS
Marjrville regained her position as undis-
puted title holder of Tennessee intercollegiate
wrestling last year in a series of thrilling match-
es. The Scots won every match except one, beat-
ing the U. of Tennessee twice, King College
and Knoxville "Y" twice, and dividing two
matches with Vanderbilt University. Coach
Thrower was well known for his ability to
take untrained, inexperienced men, and m.old
them into first class wrestlers. No matter
what your weight may be there is a place for
you on another Maryville state championship
Under the leadership of Coach George
Kschbach, the swimming team undertook the
most ambitious schedule in Maryville history.
Outstanding were the meets held with Ken-
tucky, Tennessee, Auburn, Clemson, and
Berea. Several new records were established,
and although the squad did not win every
meet, the season was considered very success-
ful. The Scots are looking forward to an
even better year in 1940-1941.
Here is another sport which has developed
rapidly at Maryville. Throughout the year
several matches are held each week, and
trips are taken through Tennessee and sur-
rounding states. Although Coach Fischbach
was faced with the problem of replacing all
but two men, the Highlanders finished the
season without the loss of a match, winning
the conference championship and placing
third in the state. The Maryville doubles
team is ranked first in the state, beating the
30 MARYVILLE COLLEGE
representatives of Sewanee in the state tourn-
ament. 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 usually filled
in the early spring and fall months ; so if
you want to do anything with tennis, report
early for practice.
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.
Several improvements have been made in
the intra-mural sports program. This activity
is sponsored by the Y. M. C. A. and includes
everything from ping-pong to football. Some
of the other sports carried on are tennis,
basketball, swimming, track, softball, golf,
archery, volleyball, and wrestling. Several
of these are conducted not as interclass sports
but as tournaments. At the end of the year
the Y. M. C. A. presents medals to the ten
outstanding class athletes.
'M" HANDBOOK 31
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 mled out of the sports.
Support your class by entering into inter-
class competition ! And it w^on't be your
class that will 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
with the other members of your class.
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 volley 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 Monogi-am (MC) ; 400 points,
Maryville "M" ; 500 points, Maryville "M"

The Alma Mater
Where Chilhowee's lofty mountains
Pierce the southern blue,
Proudly stands our Alma Mater,
Noble, grand, and true.
As thy hilltop crowned with cedars.
Ever green appears ;
So thy memory fresh shall linger
Through life's smiles and tears.
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.
