President of Maryville College 



I know of no better place to be in 
the world today than on an American 
college campus. It is a cause for pro- 
found thankfulness that our institu- 
tions are free to conduct their work, 
and that most youth of the nation 
are free to attend. Surely all of us 
are saddened when we think of the 
millions of other youth who must 
fight the world's cruel wars; surely we 
will count our opportunties more 
precious than ever; surely we will con- 
tinue to pray for the day of peace. 

To you who have been able to enter 
college this fall and who have selected 
and been selected by Maryville Col- 
lege, I extend earnest and cordial 


President of Maryville Colleae 



If you new students know something be- 
fore you come to Maryville of the location, 
historical background, general facts and activ- 
ities 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 Mary- 
ville. But we do hope that by giving you 
these general facts, we may help you to dis- 
cover for yourselves the things of value which 
Maryville has to offer you. 

As for the campus we would venture to 
say that there are few more beautiful in the 
country. A definite program of campus beau- 
tification has been in progress during the past 
five years. Hundreds of small trees and shrubs 
have been added to the campus ; a new cir- 
cular drive is soon to be completed; and 
numerous other improvements are being made. 
Included in the campus is an extensive College 
woods of pine, oak, and cedar. 

Here, very near the College botanical gar- 
dens, is a huge, natural amphitheatre in which 
the beautiful and impressive May Day pageant 
is given each year. Included also on the cam- 
pus 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 difficulty in becom- 


ing located, however, for within a few days 
after your arrival you will know them as well 
as the upper-classmen do. 

During the past year the college has built 
in the Fine Arts Studio of Voorhees Chapel a 
new broadcasting studio. Broadcasting over the 
local N.B.C. (Red) station, the Radio Vespers 
and the Wednesday evening programs have be- 
come an important step in the development of 
the college. 

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 activity, sponsored 
by the two "Y's", the Student Council, and 
various other organizations and clubs. Social 
contacts in Maryville are carried on in an 
informal and easy manner. Campus activities 
are planned with the idea of wholesome fellow- 
ship uppermost in mind. The four societies, 
two for men and two for women, aid in this 
matter by presenting a short, entertaining pro- 
gram each Saturday night. 

The clubs on the "Hill" can be put into 
three classes: vocational, honorary, and social. 
The Ministerial Association, the Law Club. Stu- 
dent Volunteers, the Pre-Medical Club and the 
Language Clubs have organized for study and 
fellowship along particular lines. Honor socie- 
ties include Forensics, Athletics, Dramatics, and 
Scholarship. There are various state and other 
clubs mentioned later for recreation and social 

A general 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 program in September and activ- 
ity 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 Mary- 
ville 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 mem- 
bers 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 
confusion, but it won't take you long to get 
your bearings. 

Xew students are continually surprised and 
impressed in finding such a friendly spirit in 
evidence at Maryville. As a general thing new 
.students expect to be the under-dogs, but this 
is not the case at Maryville. There is no haz- 
ing or mistreating of the new students. You 
Mill find the upper-classmen ready and willing 
to help you in every possible way. Ask them 
questions, borrow from them until your trunk 
arrives — they won't mind. It's the Maryville 
spirit. The new girls will be especially taken 
care of by their "big sisters", arranged for by 
the Y. W. C. A. The Y. M. C. A. has an 
"Upper Class Council" intended to aid and 
guide new fellows in their contacts at Mary- 

Xow 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. 



Hello, Xew Fellows: , 

The Y. M. C. A. extends to you its most 
sincere and hearty welcome! May your four- 
year stay at Maryville be the happiest years 
of your school life! 

The Y. M. C. A. at Maryville is active to 
serve the men students on the "Hill.'' This 
is one of the reasons we want you to become 
part of us. From the time you arrive on the 
Campus, Y. W. girls and Y. M. fellows will help 
to extend to you the friendly atmosphere of 
Maryville College. With your co-operation we 
will have a successful "Y" year. 

Included in the general "Y" program is the 
freshmen fellowship club, the upperclass coun- 
selling program, the watermelon pow wow. intra- 
mural sports, "Y" mountain hikes, spring ban- 
quet, the Artist Series, the "Y" store, the 
Sunday afternoon worship programs, and a lot 
of other activities. 

By becoming an active "Y"' member, you 
will help us to fulfill this year's motto "' . . . 
as He that doth serve". Our entire program 
is designed to meet a four-fold need— spiritual, 
physical, mental, and social. The "Y" is for 
the men of the college ; we need you to make 
our program effective. 

President. Y.M.C.A. 



Hello, New Girls! 

It is a privilege to welcome you to our cam- 
pus and our college family. You are probably 
looking forward to college with as much eager- 
ness and curiosity as the Y. W. C. A. is look- 
ing forward to meeting you. 

On each "first day" of college, buses and 
automobiles roll into the campus to be met 
by Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. friends-to-be. 
You will get a first impression of us while we 
are hunting for baggage checks, room numbers, 
and a Y. M. C. A. boy to carry your bags. 

All of that bustle is just the beginning of a 
year which we hope will be filled with happiness 
which comes from friendships formed in the 
Y. W. C. A. Our Y. W. C. A. program offers 
opportunities of personal growth and service 
to each girl. We eagerly await your arrival 
and hope to make you one of us in enjoying the 
fun and enriching experiences 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 hav- 
ing campus leaders working for the "Y." Y'ou 
will find that the Y. M. C. A. as a whole con- 
sists of hard-working, progressive young men 
with whom you will want to work or have good 

The original sponsors of the interclass ath- 
letics, the "Y" now aids the athletic depart- 
ment in the adminisration of the extensive 
Intramural Program. 

Fellowship such as the annual mountain hike 
and banquets are naturally among the most 
popular features of the "Y" program. 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 magazines 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 de- 
cisions on the vital issues of life. These meet- 
ings are brief, interesting, instructive, and 
inspiring. They are featured by special music, 
prominent guest speakers, and student discus- 
sions. They are the hub of the "Y"' program. 
Every year the Y. M. cabinet, along with the 
Y. AV. cabinet, spends a week-end "Retreat"' in 
the mountains in order to plan the work of the 
following year. The motto this year is "' . . . 
as He that doth serve"'. 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 
Xu Gamma Sigma and the Pi Gamma Sigma, 
Big Sister movements, the International Rela- 
tions Club ; and Y. W. participates 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 oppor- 
tunity to assist in some part of these services, 
and are greatly benefitted by the actual par- 

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 equipped for group events or 
individual relaxation and enjoyment. All mem- 
bers 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 leaders 
are willing to help in every way possible. Give 
Y. W. a chance to be your friend and guide, 
and join the old members as they follow this 
year's motto, "... as He that doth serve". 



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 various 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 conscious 
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 excellence. Out- 
standing in last year's series were concerts by 
Alexander Kipnis ; and Maurice Eisenberg and 
Joseph Battista in joint recital ; and the opera, 
"The Barber of Seville". Tickets are sold to 
the public; the cost to the students is included 
in the Student Activity Fee. The Series is man- 
aged by a Faculty Committee with the co- 
operation of the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. 

The 1941-1942 series will consist of the opera 
"Don Pasquale" and recitals by Anatole Kitain 
and Jan Kiepura. This year will mark the 
eleventh anniversary 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 gymnas- 
ium. It's a gala affair and so much fun you 
won't think of missing it. 




Perhaps by this time your plans for college 
are about complete and you are waiting eagerly 
for the college opening. We of Xu Gamma 
also await that time with anticipation. We are 
eager to meet and know you as a new friend. 

You have probably heard from your Nu 
Gamma leader about such things as activities, 
rules, and dress, and are forming your opinions 
of the. college from them. 

I am sure you will be interested in the Xu 
Gamma meetings which are held once a week 
for the first six weeks of school. Here you will 
make many fast friendships and will get a chance 
to ai'k all the questions that you want to. I 
know you will enjoy the hikes in the woods, 
candy pulls, and fellowship in each Xu Gamma 

We are looking forward to having you here 
and having the dear old Alma Mater become as 
dear to you as it is to us. Xu Gamma is wait- 
ing to help make you acquainted with Maryville, 
and so, we begin now by biddmg you welcome.

Everyone can fin^ 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 govern- 
ment, but it represents student opinion, and it 
works with the faculty in promoting desirable 
movements. The members are elected by their 
classes early in the fall. Two committees are 
chosen from the council, the Student-Faculty 
Committee and, the Publications Committee. 


Pi Kappa Delta 

Maryville has the honor of having the Ten- 
nessee Alpha Chapter of the national honorary 
fraternity, Pi Kappa Delta. Last year mem- 
bers of the chapter entered seven different 
speech tournaments throughout the south in ad- 
dition to other speaking activity. Members of 
the squad have consistently ranked high in 
national and local tournaments. Dr. Verton M. 
Queener is varsity coach, and Mr. Archibald F. 
Pieper, in addition to acting as Freshmen coach, 
assists in coaching the varsity squad. Both 
Freshmen and varsity groups meet as classes 
and receive college credit for their speech work. 


Theta Alpha Phi 

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

Sigma Delta Psi 

The Maryville chapter of Sigma Delta Psi was 
established in 1930. Membership is open to all 
men of the college "who maintain satisfactory 
scholarship and command the respect of their 
associates as athletes and gentlemen."' Mem- 
bership is earned by meeting the requirements 
of the various athletic tests in the presence of 
a responsible committee. 

Local Honorary Society 

Alpha Gamma Sigma was organized in the 
spring of 1934, for the purpose of motivating 
high scholarship among students. Its require- 
ments are equal to those of Phi Beta Kappa. 
Ten per cent of the graduating class may be 
admitted provided the members 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 original 
purpose, and have become purely social societies. 
The girl's societies, Bainonian and Theta Ep- 
silon, are the sister societies of the men's organ- 
izations 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 the athletic activities spon- 
sored by the Point System. 

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 members 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. Xo tech- 
nical knowledge is required for members. 
Art Club 

The Art Club is a newly formed club inter- 
ested in promoting appreciation of art and in 
stimulating its members to creative work. The 
field of interest is wide including architecture, 
sculpture, and other branches of creative art. 
Disc Club 

For the benefit of music lovers who meet to 
hear recordings of symphonic and operatic music. 
At each meeting a qualified commentator intro- 
duces 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 confi- 
dence 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 
pictures and hearing lectures to giving plays in 
the foreign language. 

Law Club 

The Law Club is composed of students whose 
purpose is to familiarize themselves with the 
features of this profession, while developing high 
standards in connection with it. Visits of emi- 
nent speakers, participation by the members, 
and mock trials give valuable information and 
experience. The activities of the year are 
climaxed with the annual banquet. 

Pi Gamma Sigma 

This organization is sponsored by the Y. W. 
C. A. to promote fellowship between the town 
girls attending college and the dormitory stu- 
dents. A luncheon is held every two weeks and 
an interesting program presented. 

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. 

State Clubs 

In addition to the social clubs already men- 
tioned there are various state clubs composed 
of students from the same section of the 
country. The Triangle. Cotton, and Appalachian 
clubs are of this group. They welcome you to 
join in their social fun. 



The weekly "Highland Echo" is the college 
newspaper. Twelve freshmen apprentices are 
usually chosen each year by examination of 
samples of their writings in competitive tryouts. 
The "Chilhowean," the annual yearbook, is an- 
other 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 meetings, 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 Maryville. 

. The Student Volunteer group is composed not 
only of those who have pledged themselves to 
the foreign field, but of those who are inter- 
ested 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 frequently missionaries on 
furlough provide valuable and inspiring first 
hand material. 

The Maryville Larger Parish composed of 
forty Ministerial and Student Volunteer mem- 
bers has charge of Sunday School work in a 
number of Sunday Schools in three counties 
around Maryville. This project is under the 
Presbvterian Mission Board. 


Since 1S77 February Meetings have been a 
part of the religious program. A prominent 
religious speaker conducts daily services, the 
object of which is to deepen the spiritual life 
on the campus. 

The annual Fred Hope drive is for the col- 
lection of funds for use in the work of an 
African mission school of which ]Mr. Hope, a 
former Maryville student, is superintendrnt. 


The opportunities offered for musical achieve- 
ment at Maryville College are numerous and 
varied. The four most influential musical or- 
ganizations on the campus are the College 
Choir, the Glee Club, the Band, and the Orches- 
tra, all under the direction of Professor Ralph 
R. Colbert. Each of these groups has built 
for Itself an enviable reputation in East Tennes- 
see. The smaller organizations, namely the 
Women's Trio, the Male Quartet, and the String 
Ensemble are also in demand. 

The most widely renowned production of the 
Fine Arts department during the year is the 
annual presentation of Handel's '"Messiah" with 
a chorus of two hundred voices, built around 
the nucleus of the choir and the glee clubs, 
accompanied by the college orchestra. 

The College Choir is composed of forty stu- 
dents who are admitted to its ranks only after 
passing a rigid entrance examination. In addi- 
tion to its participation in the weekly Vesper 
services, the choir serves in the newly inaug- 
urated radio vespers. 

Yearly spring concerts are given by the Or- 
chestra, the Band, and the Glee Clubs. The 
Glee Clubs assisted by the orchestra also pre- 
sent a light opera, while the Band aids in_ the 
athletic events throughout the school year." 



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 physic- 
ally. As a result of this realization Maryville 
College holds a high rating among the schools 
of the southeastern states in regards to ath- 
letics. Her teams rank high in comparison with 
colleges of similar size throughout the country. 
Besides having inter-collegiate athletics, there 
is also conducted a well-dsveloped and highly 
organized system of Intramural athletics for 
men. Under the leadership of Mrs. Verton M. 
Queener, coach of women's athletics, the women 
have what is known as the point .oystem. Both 
of these programs will be more fully described 

Of the group of nine or ten colleges and 
universities with which the Scotties have inter- 
collegiate competition, Maryville is probably the 
largest. Although the keen competition between 
these schools of East Tennessee and West North 
Carolina is not known throughout the country, 
few colleges have as high a reputation for honest 
and clean sports activity in their inter-collegiate 
competition. Hardly a year passes that does 
not find Maryville ranking high among the 
schools with which it competes. 

Maryville does not buy her athletes. Those 
who come to Maryville come with the under- 
standing that places on her athletic teams are 
open to physical fitness and average scholastic 
ability; nothing else. In addition 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. 

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




On some Saturday night very soon after the 
opening of the academic year, the flood lights of 
Wilson Field will be turned on and 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, inaugu- 
rating the beginning of another football season 
at Maryville college. But this season will some- 
how 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 through- 
out the winter months. Last season Maryville's 
live played nice ball, winning from such schools 
as King, Western Carolina, Cumberland, Union, 
Emory and Henry, Carson-Newman, Hiwassee, 
Lincoln Memorial and others. After getting off 
to a slow start, the Scots came back fighting 
to end with a very successful 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 con- 
ducts the workouts. After Coach Honaker comes 
out, the squad is gradually cut down to about 
twenty men and then the real preparation for 
the production of a smooth, well-balanced quin- 
tet is begun in earnest. A long schedule with 
various independent and college teams is then 
begun which continues on into March before 
the season is finally ended. 

Although the majority of last year's squad 
will return for another season on the Maryville 
floor, there is, however, 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 behind 
him. Coach Honaker was able to pilot the boys 
through an extraordinary season and to place 
the team high in the ranks of southern col- 
legiate baseball. The record that our team 
has is something that Maryville students are 
all proud of. But with at least five of the 
veteran nine leaving as seniors, there will be 
plenty of room for improvements and new men. 


Baseball is a sport that Maryville is known 
for not only in the South, but in such North- 
ern states as Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana. 

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 future. 

Traok and Field 

Maryville has always had strong track and 
field teams. In 1939 the Scots climaxed their 
most successful season by winning the Tennessee 
State championship and beating many large 
schools and universities in this territory. In 
the 1940 season the squad held down second 
place in the state meet. This past year, how- 
ever, the Scots were only able to place fourth. 
Maryville students await the day when, with 
your help, the track and field teams will once 
again be the proud Tennessee State champions. 

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. 




Maryville regained her position as undisputed 
title holder of Tennessee intercollegiate wrest- 
ling last year in a series of thrilling matches. 
The undefeated Scotties were victors over such 
schools as the U. of Tennessee, Western Caro- 
lina Teachers, and Vanderbilt Tniversity. Our 
new coach, J. D. Davis, has done a, brilliant 
work in keeping up with the record of previous 
years. Next year there will be plenty of vacan- 
cies on the squad ; so, regardless of your weight 
or experience, try out. There may be a place- 
for you on another Maryville state championi 


Under the leadership of Coach George Fish- 
bach, the swimming team undertook one of the 
most ambitious schedules in Maryville history. 
Building his team around and upon a majority 
of freshmen talent. Coach Fishbach looks for- 
w^ard next year to a great season. Although the 
team did not win every meet, they did succeed 
in breaking several records and the season was 
considered very successful. 


Here is another sport which has developed 
rapidly at Maryville. Throughout the year sev- 
eral matches are held each week, and trips 
are taken through Tennessee and surrounding 
Btates. With most of the old lettermen back for 
another season, the Scotty Tennis team com- 
pleted a great year on the courts. Losing only 
a few matches, they look forward to next year 
as an even greater year with no defeats. Be- 


cause none of the varsity men will be leaving 
this year, we students have all the reason to 
believe this to be possible. But even though the 
varsity men are all returning next year there are 
still places for those who are 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 guid- 
ance of any of the coaches but one of the 
runners is usually captain and coach. Pre\ious 
seasons have been featured by victories over 
University of Tennessee and Lincoln Memorial 


During the past year the Intramural Sports 
Program was considerably expanded and en- 
larged. The department of Intramurals offers 
to all students the opportunity to engage in 
healthful, wholesome, and worthwhile recreational 
activities under the careful supervision of the 
Intramural staff. That this service has been 
appreciated is proven by the keen interest, large 
participation, and fine spirit shown by the 
students during the past year. Special emphasis 
is given to those sports that have a "carry- 
over" value and can be used after leaving school. 
Every student is urged to adjust his program 
so that he can participate as much as possible 
in the opportunities offered for his enjoyment 
and value. 

Activities on the program for this year in- 

'M" HANDBOOK 31 the following: touch football, tennis, golf, 
horseshoes, volleyball, tumbling, basketball, foul 
throw, ping pong, Intramural Festival, swim- 
ming', fencing, badminton, shuffleboard, arch- 
ery, handball, croquet, and Sigma Delta Psi 
(National Athletic Fraternity trials). 

L'nder the managerial system there is one sen- 
ior manager, two junior managers, eight soph- 
omore managers, and any number of freshmen 
try-out managers, all working with and under 
the supervision of George Fishbach, Director of 
Intramural Sports. All freshmen wishing to 
apply as try-out managers should contact the 
Intramural Director immediately after arriving- 
at the College. Freshmen who qualify are ap- 
pointed to higher managerial positions their 
following years. 

There are two types of Intramural compe- 
tition offered at Maryville— the divisions and the 
all-college. All team sports are conducted in 
two separate divisions or leagues: Society and 
Club; and Independent. These two divisions have 
the samo( sports schedule throughout the year. 
No independent may play on a Society or Club: 
team, but a Society or Club member may play 
on an independent team providing he is not 
playing with his Society or Club in the same 

All individual sports are scheduled without 

divisions. Each individual represents himself 

rather than any organization. These are all- 
college events. 

Freshmen and new students coming in should 
join an intramural team early in the fall. 
Touch football and tennis begin the Intramural 
Program. If you wish to become ai team man- 
ager, organize an independent team of your 


own and enter it in the independent league. 
Anyone who is unable to place himself on ai 
learn should contact the Intramural Office in 
order to insure himself of an opportunity for 

At the end of each year awards are given for 
achievement and success in the Intramural Pro- 
gram. To the senior Intramural manager is 
given a Maryville athletic sweater. A suitable 
trophy is given to the high, all-year scorer and 
monograms to the next ten highest scorers. 
Certificates of merit are also given to the win- 
ners and runner-ups in each event. To the 
Society or Club team that scores the most 
points throughout the year, a rotating trophy 
is awarded. Points are awarded on the follow-

gram. Through participation comes one of the 
best chances to meet other students and to 
become acquainted. You are urged to back up 
the Intramural Program. 



Point System of Athletic Awards 

Since the intercollegiate contests have been 
dispensed with, the point system has been, 
adopted. Women are given an opportunity to 
participate in every sport, and a chance to 
win the monogram, the small letter, or the large 
letter and sweater. By qualifying for basket- 
ball, soccer, indoor baseball, and volley ball 
teams a girl may win 30 points for each team. 
Additional points are awarded for sportsman- 
ship, membership on a squad, captain or man- 
ager of a team, and perfect attendance. In, 
swimming, track, tennis, hiking, and aerial dart 
tournaments, .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 

Honors are awarded as follows: 300 points, 
Maryville Monogram (MC) ; 400 points, Mary- 
ville "M" ; 500 points, Maryville "M" with

Maryyille College 


I One Hundred and Twenty-Third Year 
Begins September 2, 1941 

Maryville College is one of the im- 
portant church-reiated institutions of 
America, and seeks to be true to the 
noblest traditions of the association of 
education and religion. Its Directors 
are elected by the Synod of Tennessee 
of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. 

It is a Christian liberal-arts college 
with the purpose of providing a general 
cultural education. It is not a profes- 
sional or pre-professional school, al- 
though its courses form sound founda- 
tional preparation for professional study. 

Its fees are deliberately kept at a 
low level for the benefit of those who 
might not be able to attend otherwise. 
This makes earnest cooperation on the 
part of all an essential factor. 

It desires to select its students on the 
basis of preparation, earnestness, capac- 
ity, character, and co-operativeness.
