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. 


President of Maryville 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 

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- 
men do. 

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 
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 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. 



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 
send greetings. 

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 ? 

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




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. 

Sincerely yours, 
President, Y. W. C. A.

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 
other sports. 

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 
new students. 

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. 



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- 
low this year's motto, "Christ, Our Cornei-- 



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- 

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 

Artist Series 

Each year the College brings to the campus 
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. 




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. 

Student Council 

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- 
lications Committee. 


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. 

Social Societies 

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 
the college. 



Writers' Workshop 

Students who show interest and ability in 
literary work may be elected to the Writers* 
Workshop. The members are elected from 
the faculty and the junior and senior classes. 
Each member writes and reads aloud for 
criticism one paper a semester. 

"M" Club 

The "M" Club membership is restricted to 
those girls who have earned the college 
letter by participation in athletic activity 
and the keeping of health rules. 

Pi Upsilon and B. G. 

These are clubs for hiking and other activi- 
ties for men and women respectively. The 
men's organization is limited to twelve mem- 
bers and the women's to eight members. 

Nature Club 

The Nature Club is a very interesting one 
to belong to, for its meetings consist of 
movies, demonstrations, and similar programs. 
No technical knowledge is required for 

Camera Club 

If you click a shutter or spend all your al- 
lowance on the hobby of photography, here 
is a fine club to join. Any Maryville stu- 
dent or faculty member genuinely interested 
in photography is invited to become a mem- 

Disc Club 

For the benefit of music lovers who meet to 
hear recordings of symphonic and operatic 
music. At each meeting a qualified com- 
mentator introduces the compositions played. 


Language Clubs 

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 
German clubs. The programs are varied 
from seeing pictui-es and hearing lectures to 
giving plays in the foreign language. 

Law Club 

Students who are studying with a view to 
entering the profession of law maintain this 
organization. Their purpose is to familiarize 
themselves with the features of their con- 
templated life-work, and to develop high 
moral standards and ideals in connection with 
their profession. 

Confab Club 

This club was organized for the purpose 
of promoting improvement in speech among 
its members, having as its program the pre- 
sentation of speeches and the carrying on of 
criticized conversation. All students taking 
courses in dramatic art are eligible to mem- 

Pre-Medical Club 

This club was organized to promote interest 
in medicine and in the medical profession. 
Anyone having interests along these lines is 
invited to join. 

Pi Gamma Sigma 

The Y. W. C. A. was instrumental in form- 
ing this organization to promote fellowship 
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 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- 


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 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. 




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 

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 
Maryville was runner-up for the conference 
championship, and held one victory over the 
first place school, Lincoln Memorial. After 
losing- the first conference game, the Scots 
came back fighting to win every other game 
played on the Maryville hardwood during the 

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 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 
the 1941 season, three of them being seniors. 
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 
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 toward baseball. Coach 
Honaker wants you for he must have good 
material for his championship teams of the 

Track and Field 

Maryville has always had strong track and 
field teams. They have won the Smoky 
Mountain Conference championship five out 
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. 

*(Died May 20th, 1940). 




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 


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. 

Interclass Sports 
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. 


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" 
with sweater.

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.

Maryville College 


One Hundred and Twenty-Second Year 
Begins September 10, 1940 

Maryville College is one of the im- 
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 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 kopt at a 
low level for the benefit of those 
who might 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-operative-
