President of Maryville College
GREETING FROM THE
PRESIDENT OF THE 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
RALPH WALDO LLOYD
President of Maryville Colleae
GENERAL INTRODUCTION TO
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
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
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.
Y. M. C. A. PRESIDENT'S WELCOME
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.
Y. W. C. A. PRESIDENT'S WELCOME
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.

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 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
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
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.
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
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
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.
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.
NU GAMMA CHAIRMAN'S WELCOME
DEAR NEW GIRLS:
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.

GENERAL STUDENT ACTIVITY
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
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.
NATIONAL HONORARY FRATERNITIES
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This club was organized to promote interest
in medicine and in the medical profession.
Anyone having interests along these lines is
invited to join.
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.
•M" HANDBOOK 23
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
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 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 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
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.
MINOR VARSITY SPORTS
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
INTRAMURAL SPORTS PROGRAM
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
Activities on the program for this year in-

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.

imcovered head are prerequisite to a respectful
attitude toward the Alma Mater at a time when

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.
