Published by the Young Men's and Young Women's 
Christian Association in cooperation with the Student 
Council, the Women's Student Government Associa- 
tion, and the Executive Council of the Faculty. 


The sponsors of this book, the Maryville College 
YWCA and YMCA, welcome you to Maryville and 
hope that your stay will be fruitful and enjoyable. 

The Y's at Maryville hold a unique place on the 
campus. They serve to unite all men and women of 
the College in a Christian fellowship where they can 
serve, work, and have fun together. By looking at the 
lists of cabinet positions, one can get an idea of 
just how expansive the program of the Y's actually 
is — anything from athletics, missions, and radio to 
worship, hiking, devotions, and community projects. 

And how can you become a part of all this? 
Upon payment of the activity fee at the time of registra- 
tion, one automatically becomes a member of Y. But 
in order to vote and take an active part in the functions 
of Y, it is necessary to fill out one of the active mem- 
bership pledge cards which will be made available 
to all students at the beginning of the semester. How- 
ever, this is merely the beginning, and the important 
part is your continued interest and support throughout 
th6 year. 

We hope this book serves you well as a guide 
during the college year and also that the Y's serve 
you in keeping with their purpose and objective — 
"to unite in a Christian fellowship."

Greetings From Our President 

Welcome to Maryville College for the academic 
year of 1954-1955. It will be the first college year for 
most students who read this, but the second, third, or 
fourth for others. 

The longer people are at Maryville College the 
more enthusiastic they become about the College and 
about being here — if they are in earnest. 

While conditions, work, and people at Maryville 
are not perfect, I recommend the habit of enthusiasm. 
It will insure^ happiness and effectiveness from the 
very first year for yourself and others. 

We who have been planning for your coming 
welcome you enthusiastically for the College's 136th 

Ralph Waldo Lloyd 



Where Chilhowee's lofty mountains 
Pierce the southern blue, 

Proudly stands our Alma Mater, 
Noble, grand, and true. 


Orange, Garnet, float forever. 

Ensign of our hill! 
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater, 

Hail to Maryville! 

As thy hilltop crowned with cedars 

Evergreen 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 highlands! 

Loud her praises sing! 

"On Highlanders" 

(Words and Music by Charles Huffman, '49) 

On, Highlanders, down the field, 
Rolling up a high score! 

Tear into the end zone. 
Smash on through that line, 


Send a rousing cheer on high. 
And our boys will shine. 

Come on and fight, fight, fight! 
Come on and fight, fight, fightl 

For dear old Maryville! 



There are some things about Maryville which are 
very special to all of us who are old students and 
which we know you will treasure before long. When 
you capture the spirit of Maryville and become a 
part of our College family, you will find your love 
for her will be broader and deeper because of them. 
These special "somethings" are the traditions which 
are so much a part of Maryville. We know that when 
you're old and gray you'll have some vivid and 
pleasant memories of Scotty Hill, and you'll feel a sort 
of nostalgia when you think of the traditions of your 
four-year stay here. 

You'll always remember your first few days at 
Maryville as days of lines — registration lines. Treas- 
urer's Office lines. Bookstore lines, and more lines. 
Don't let them discourage you, though. They will be 
over in a few days and soon classes will begin. 
But there's one line we want to tell you about before 
we go on. It's probably the longest one of all, and 
we're sure you won't forget it very soon. 


We're speaking, of course, of the long line of 
hand-shakers at the FACULTY RECEPTION. For this 
line you girls will want to wear your prettiest formal, 
and you fellows your best suit and tie. Then you'll go 
with your brightest smile and a firm handshake (at 
first, anyway), and you'll meet the MC faculty 

RUSH WEEK comes very near the first of the year 
with all of its festivities. Membership in the girls' 
societies — Bainonian and Theta Epsilon — and the men's 
societies — Alpha Sigma and Athenian — is open to all 
members of the student body, and the four societies 
go all out to line up new students as prospective 
members. In consecutive weeks the brother-and-sister 
societies conduct intensive membership drives which 
are climaxed by a formal program on Saturday night. 
It doesn't matter so much which society you choose, 
but be sure to choose one and pledge your whole- 
hearted support to it. 

It won't be long before TOWN NIGHT rolls around. 
At Maryville this is "date night" in town — one night 
a week for freshman and sophomore girls, two nights 
a week for junior and senior girls — when you and 
your date can go downtown for a movie, bowling, 
skating, or just a hamburger or soda, before signing 
in at the dorm at 10:30 p.m. 

On other week-day nights, as well as during 
the day, you may feel the need of a coke, sand- 
wich, or an ice cream cone at the STUDENT 
CENTER. Here you'll find an attractive lounge, a 
recreation center, and the Y-STORE. Incidentally, 
it's a good place to stop on your way home from 
the Saturday night doin's on campus, too. 

It won't be long, either, before you discover 
the two adjectives which are so important to us 
spontaneity with which you reply to the friendly 
"hi" and bright smiles between classes will mean 
as much to you as to those you meet. 


You'll find that VESPERS is a program of 
worship and inspiration which will get the week 
off to a fine start. Held each Sunday night at 
7:00, VESPERS features outstanding guest speak- 
ers and music by Maryville's own Vesper Choir. 
After VESPERS you'll find more worm, instructive 
fellowship at STUDENT VOLS held in Bartlett Hall 
every Sunday night about 8:00. 

Noted guest artists are heard in the ARTISTS 
SERIES. The series was discontinued for several 
years because of the chapel fire; but now that we 
have our new Wilson Chapel, we can look forward 
to some wonderful programs by visiting artists. 

Sometime early in the fall, the College begins 
its drive for the FRED HOPE FUND, which was 
established as a tribute to the memory of one of 
Maryville's outstanding graduates, Fred Hope, who 
spent his life as a missionary in Africa. Today 
this fund enables Maryville College students and 
faculty to have a part in some outstanding and 
needy mission work in the foreign field. You'll wont 
to contribute to this worthwhile drive. 

comes in all its dignity. In the morning a chapel 
service solemnly marks the founding of the College. 
Dorms are colorfully decorated to receive the alumni 
who arrive in great numbers. In the afternoon there's 
a big Homecoming parade through town, and that 
evening the Scotties meet their toughest foe on the 
old home field. Oh, yes — you'll envy that lovely 
senior girl elected to reign as Homecoming Queen, too. 

Your guess is as good as ours as to what the 
theme of this year's BARNWARMING will be. 
This is THE show of the fall and is held each 
Thanksgiving eve in the Alumni Gym. Sponsored 
by the Y's, every effort is made to present the 
best talent on campus. You'll enjoy the visits 
through the little "shops" before the main feature. 
King and Queen, chosen from the senior class, and 
attendants from each of the four classes ore elected 


by the student body. But, like the theme, the court 
is kept a top secret until Barnwarming night. 

In no time at all Christmas is here, bringing 
with it a welcome vacation (preceded by a siege 
of final exams). In the midst of all the pre-Christ- 
mas rush you'll wont to take time out for the 
annual presentation of Handel's THE MESSIAH. 
The Vesper Choir, the All-Girl Choir, and the Men's 
Glee Club form the nucleus of the chorus, but yours 
can be one of the hundreds of voices which unite 
to present this inspiring oratorio. The College orchestra 
also takes part, and Miss Davies is the accompanist 
at the organ. 

You'll enjoy your January vacation well enough, 
but we'll bank on your eagerness to get back on 
campus and into all the activities here! In February 
comes the week when the emphasis is shifted more 
to spiritual thoughts during FEBRUARY MEETINGS. 
It will be to your advantage to attend these religious 
services each morning and evening to gain renewed 
spiritual strength for the weeks to come. 

Once each year the dorms hold OPEN HOUSE 
when the fellows and girls display their rooms to 
the best advantage to each other and to the 
general public. This is the time when you see how 
the other half lives and is always immediately 
preceded by rather exhaustive house cleaning and 
followed by loud sighs of relief. 

Nothing can compare with the thrill of seeing 
the sun's first rays burst over the Smokies as the 
Choir sings "Alleluia, Christ Is Risen." It's worth 
getting up early and traipsing out to the College 
Amphitheatre to the EASTER SUNRISE SERVICE. 

Each spring the old and new Y Cabinets 
have their annual Y RETREAT. Held in a picturesque 
mountain setting, the retreat affords time for these 
groups to plan the activities for the coming year in Y. 


The All-Girl Choir and Men's Glee Club combine 
every spring to give a musical program. Last year 
the group presented the delightful Victor Herbert 
operetta, "FORTUNE TELLER." 

Our lovely amphitheatre in the College Woods 
becomes such varied scenes as the Emerald City 
of Oz, Alice's Wonderland, or a Southern plantation 
with Uncle Remus for the annual MAY DAY PAGEANT. 
Being May Queen is a cherished honor for some 
senior girl. Her attendants are chosen from the other 
classes and reign with her over the festivities. 

And before you know it, COMMENCEMENT comes. 
Classes and exams are over, and dignified services 
are climaxed by the commencement exercises with 
the procession of the Daisy Chain, the faculty, and 
the graduating class. The Daisy Chain, composed of 
14 girls from the junior class, make the long daisy 
chains through which the procession passes. 

It's a happy occasion for the seniors — but yet 
a sad one, for last goodbyes are difficult to say. 
We feel sure the departing seniors will have more 
than just the initials after their names to remember, 
though. They are a part of the College which has 
meant so much to them, and certainly it will become 
a port of our lives and personalities, too. 


1, ll 


One of the biggest adjustments you'll have to 
make at college is that of living with a dorm full 
of people. It will require far more understanding 
and patience than many of you dreamed possible. 
The oft-quoted Golden Rule applies in a special 
way here. Remember that the rights of one person are 
limited so that the rights of another person or group 
may be respected. We're jotting down a few sug- 
gestions here that we feel will be very valuable 
to you in making your days in the dorm happy 

Everybody who wants to listen to a radio has 
one of his own, so it won't be necessary for you 
to play yours loud enough for the people down the 
hall to hear. 

Every night many people in the dorm want and 
need to do some concentrated studying. You will 
appreciate it when your neighbors refrain from loud 
talking, door-slamming, and hall-yelling, and when 
they observe closed study hours and your "busy" 
signs; likewise, your neighbors will appreciate these 
courtesies on your part. 

You may enjoy living in a messy room, but 
to your roommate and those about you it may be 


obnoxious; so don't wait until time for the yearly 
Open House to clean up your room. 

Guests and visitors often come at the most 
unexpected times. Always appear properly clad when 
in the halls; otherwise it can be very embarrassing 
for an outsider to meet you, and vice versa. 

Remember that sincerity and cheerfulness ore 
musts in making and keeping friends. Nothing can 
brand you quicker than being a perpetual griper, 
or always making catty remarks about the faculty 
or other students. 

Always keep your conduct in the parlors and 
public rooms such that others will feel both free and 
welcome to come in at all times. 

If you're not interested in making friends, then 

— Monopolize the telephone. 

— Sweep dirt into the halls and leave it there. 
— Wash your clothes in the bathrooms during the 

"busy" hours. 
— Barge into your friends' rooms during study hours 

and waste their time and yours as well. 
— Get up earlier than most people in the morning and 

make a general disturbance. 
— Use the ironing boards on the floors to do your 

week's ironing. 

— Never clean the tubs, basins, etc., after using them. 

— Take supplies from the medicine chest and leave 
them in your room. 

—Borrow extensively from everybody.

your parents previously sign the regular Standing 
Permission form which allows you approximately five

discussed with her so that she can fill out your 
activity card properly. 

5. When properly chaperoned and arranged at

Meals are served in the Dining Hall on the first 
floor of Pearsons Hall as follows: 

Weekdays: 7:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 6:00 p.m. 

Saturdays: 7:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m. 

Sundays: 8:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m. 

Your guests may eat in the dining room by 
arranging with the Dietitian. 
Meal prices are: 

Weekdays: Breakfast, 35c; Lunch, 75c; Dinner, 75c. 

Saturdays: Breakfast, 35c; Lunch, 75c; Supper, 40c. 

Sundays: Breakfast, 35c; Dinner, $1.00; Supper, 40c. 

Your tablemates, all seven of them, will appreciate 
your appearing well-groomed and well-mannered at 
meals. Take time to freshen up a bit before meals, 
especially dinner. For Sunday dinner, both boys and 
girls are expected to wear their "Sunday best." 

Try to make conversation table-wide, but remember 
loud and boisterous talking is in poor taste and • is 
annoying to those at tables nearest yours. At the 
table acquire a bit of "polish" to your manners. After 
all, bad manners are not considered cute, and it isn't 
difficult to say "please" and "thank you." 

Your waitress has classes and obligations too, so 
she will appreciate your consideration in getting to and 
from meals on time. 

By all means, you will want to be attentive and 
reverent during the blessing. 




1. Students are advised to keep a personal record 
of all absences. 

2. Excuses for illness or other emergencies must 
be presented at the Personnel Office within tv/o days

excuses will be approved unless you do this. 

3. Absences will be authorized for approved Col- 
lege activities, such as scheduled trips for members 
of the debate squad, choir, band, ball teams, etc. 

4. Here is a list of cuts allowed from each class

Harry MacCall 

Hi Ya'all, 

With a traditional Southern greeting I want to 
welcome you to Maryville College. This friendly 
greeting will soon come to mean a great deal to you 
because it will be the password that will enable 
you to meet many new friends. 

Although the main emphasis of college life is 
studies, we must also round out our program with a 
good social life. Throughout the year we will be 
having many big social events for all to participate in. 
In the fall we will have football games, Barnwarming, 
Rush Week, and many other big events. Then in 
the second semester we will have May Day, baseball 
games, hikes and other such activities. During both 
semesters we will have a big formal dance that is 
always popular with all the students. 

On the whole it looks like a great year. From the 
first minute you arrive at Maryville until you go 
home, pitch right in and take a part in the activities 
that will be going on around the campus. Start the 
semester off right, and a good dose of that "Maryville 
Spirit" — it really does you good. 

Here's hoping that you are having a great summer 
and enjoying a wonderful vacation. We are all look- 
ing forward to meeting you in the fall. 
See you real soon, 
Harry MacCall 
Social Board Chairman

Hi Girls, 

Welcome each and everyone of you to the Hill! 
We are looking forward to a year filled with fun 
and fellowship for all — and that's just what it will 
be if everyone takes part. 

We believe that in the YWCA, with its oppor- 
tunities for us to grow physically, mentally, and 
spiritually, there is a place for every girl. So we 
invite you to join in one or several of our many 
activities — Y-Radio, worship programs, community 
service, missions work, Y hike, and many others. 
Most of all, we hope you'll find real fellowship with 
us as we work, play, and worship together to enrich 
our life both here on campus and in the world. 

This year can be the best for each of us in "Y". 
We'll be waiting for you and your participation!

Hi Fellas, 

In a short time we'll all be back "on the Hill" for 
the beginning of another semester. Until then, let 
me take this opportunity to say, "Welcome, we're 
glad to have you" to the new students, and "Welcome 
back" to the old. 

We sincerely hope that you will find a place in 
Y this year, for we feel not only that we have 
something to offer you, but also that your support 
is needed to help carry out our overall program. This 
includes athletics, devotions, mission projects, radio, 
worship, the Y hike to the Smokies, and many others. 
We believe that much can be gained by uniting those 
of similar interests, and in this way, working and 
serving together; and no matter where your interests 
lie, there is a place for you. 

So we unite together in a fellowship of CHRISTIAN 
MEN at Maryville; won't you join us?

Committee of WSGA to withdraw any or all privileges 
of a student who does not live up to the general 
standards or principles or whose conduct is unseemly. 

BY-LAW NO. 3— Junior Privileges 

1. Each junior woman may have two town nights 
a week with the same rules in effect as stated in 
the Student Council Town Night Agreement. 

2. The provisions for responsibilities and penalties 
shall be the same as in By-Law No. 2 for senior 



College is the place to learn selection and 
discrimination. Start using this principle when choos- 
ing your extra-curricular activities. You must not 
go to extreme and join every club that comes your 
way. If you do, you'll soon find yourself all bogged 
down and your enthusiasm lost in social activities as 
well as studies. 

During your freshman year, pick one or two 
activities on which to concentrate your efforts. Then, 
if your grades remain high and you find time for 
other activities, you'll have plenty of time to become 
a member of another club later. Remember that 
such activities as the Echo staff and debating take more 
time each year. Once you have joined a group, try 
to stay with it through the rest of your College life. 
If, during your junior or senior year, you feel you are 
forced to give up something, the least you can do is 
not to substitute one club for another. 



Pi Kappa Delta 

Maryville has the distinction of having the 
Tennessee Alpha Chapter of Pi Kappa Delta, national 
honorary forensic fraternity. Debaters of sophomore 
classification or above who hove fulfilled certain 
qualifications are eligible to be elected into its mem- 
bership. Members of this organization are awarded 
orders and degrees according to rank and achieve- 
ment. Maryville participates in the Pi Kappa Delta 
National and Provincial Conventions. 

Theta Alpha Phi 

Talented dramatic students may, upon meeting 
certain requirements for membership, be initiated into 
the Tennessee Delta Chapter of the national dramatic 
fraternity, Theta Alpha Phi. Members of this organiza- 
tion take a leading part in dramatic activities on the 
campus; however, opportunity is given to all students 
to try out for the various plays given throughout 
the year. 

Sigma Delta Psi 

Maryville's chapter of Sigma Delta Psi was 
established in 1930. Membership is earned by meeting 
the requirements of various athletic tests in the 
presence of a responsible committee. 

Alpha Gamma Sigma 

Alpha Gamma Sigma was organized in the spring 
of 1934, for the purpose of motivating high scholar- 
ship among students. Its requirements are similar to 
those of Phi Beta Kappa. Ten percent of the gradu- 
ating class may be admitted provided the members 
have a grade point ratio of 6.5, or somewhat more 
than a B average. 



Pi Gamma 

,Pi Gamma, sponsored by the YW, is for the 
purpose of promoting friendship between town and 
dormitory girls. The girls in Pi Gamma have a 
luncheon every two weeks to which they usually 
invite dorm girls. Friendships between town and 
dorm girls are mutually advantageous and enjoyable. 
Some of the happiest memories of college can be the 
weekend that you, as a dormitory girl, spent in 
the home of a town friend, or the time you, as a 
town girl, were invited to spend the night in the 
dorm. No girl should go through college without such 
an experience. 

Student Volunteers 

Student Vols is affiliated with the national Stu- 
dent Volunteer Movement. Vols is a fellowship of 
students who wish to establish and further a significant 
concern in the missionary enterprise. It is composed 
not only of students who are planning to go to the 
field, but also, and chiefly, of all those who are in any 
way interested in the mission of Christ's church. The 
weekly programs (Sunday night after Vespers, usually 
in Bartlett Hall) present informative and challenging 
aspects of the work being done on both the foreign 
and home mission fields. Regular prayer-fellowship 
and study groups, a special missionary out-reach 
project, and socials also have a vital part in the 
total Vols' program. i 

Parish Project 

The Maryville College Parish was incorporated 
last year in the new larger parish of the Blount 
County area. College students are needed in the 
program to serve as Sunday School teachers and as 
youth workers. More are needed to preach on 

— 74r- 

Sundays and to teach during the week. Students 

are given a half-hour credit for this work and they 

attend weekly conferences for guidance in their 

Pre-Ministerial Association 

The Pre-Ministerial Association, organized in 
1900, is open to all students who are planning to 
become ministers or who are interested in other phases 
of Christian service. In addition to its regular meet- 
ings twice a month the Association shares in planning 
with the other religious organizations, YM, YW, and 
Student Vols, the campus prayer meetings and other 
campus religious programs. Its members are encouraged 
to engage in some form of service to local missions 
and rural churches in the vicinity of Maryville. 

Writer's Workshop 

Literary interest and achievement are the basis 
for membership in Writer's Workshop. Members are 
elected from the junior and senior classes and faculty. 
Each member writes and presents to the group two 
papers each year for criticism and in turn serves 
as literary critic. 




Varied activities and friendships highlight the 
program of Bainonian Society. The second week 
after school starts this year, Bainonian will join 
her brother society Athenian to present a Rush Week 
program. Last year's theme for Rush Week was 
"Stairway to Heaven." Weekly meetings through the 
year are held in Bainonian Hall. 

Theta Epsilon 

Organized in 1894, Theta Epsilon Society has 
played an active part in campus life. Last year 
Theta won the cup for giving the best skit in the 
Annual Skit Contest. The third week of school this 
year will find Theta and her brother society, Alpha 
Sigma, presenting their Rush Week. Last year's 
theme for this important week was "Mardi Gras." 
Meetings are held each week in Theta Hall. 

Alpha Sigma 

Alpha Sigma, founded in 1884, offers men of 
the College an opportunity to participate in activi- 
ties that will build true friendships. It enters teams 
in all intramural sports and holds an annual weekend 
trip to the mountains, barbecue, banquet, and similar 
activities. It joins with its sister society Theta Epsilon 
in producing a dance and a Rush Week program. 


Lasting friendships are made in Athenian Society, 
oldest society on the campus. College men appreciate 
a society that "brings them a varied and interesting 
social program and also active participation in the 
College's intramural program. Athenian joins Bainonian, 
its sister society, in its annual Rush Week program 
and holds weekly meetings in its society room. 


Christian Education Clizb 

Maryville's newest campus organization — the 
Christian Education Club — was formed for the pur- 
pose of giving an opportunity to prospective Directors 
of Christian Education and church workers to become 
familiar with various skills needed in the field. This 
is done through a program of lectures and laboratory 
periods. The club is open to all those interested. 

International Relations Club 

Maryville's I.R.C. is affiliated with the Association 
of International Relations Clubs. Its purpose is to 
stimulate an awareness of current international af- 
fairs. Student-led programs include movies, speakers, 
and discussions on such pertinent topics as Indo- 
China, Israel, and South Africa. 

Pre-Med Club 

To anyone who is planning to go into medicine 
or nursing the Pre-Med Club offers an excellent 
chance for hearing lectures on medicine and related

or selected short movies. The club meets twice a 
month throughout both semesters and interest is 
the only prerequisite to membership. 

French Clvb

bership by scholarship and interest. This club features 
semi-monthly programs of French songs, games, movies, 
and plays, and holds occasional socials. 

German Club 

All College students who ore interested in 
German culture, regardless of whether or not they 
are German students, are eligible for membership 
in the German Club. Regular meetings are held 


twice a month to stimulate interest and arouse 
participation in different phases of German culture. 

Spanish Club 

The limited active membership of thirty plus 
all native Spanish-speaking students on the campus 
are elected from applicants who are interested in 
the activities of the Spanish Club. Beside the semi- 
monthly evening meetings at which are presented 
programs of language, customs, culture, music, dance, 
and use of audio-visual equipment in the language 
laboratory, there are an outdoor picnic and a Christmas 
party featuring ihe Spanish pinata. All Freshmen ore 
invited to visit the club when they arrive on the 

"M" Club 

"M" Club is the girls' athletic club of Maryville 
College. Membership is attained by making a total 
of 400 or more points through participation in what 
is known as Women's Varsity. In addition to athletic 
activities two hours a week, the members meet monthly 
for business discussions and enjoy an athletic activity 
together. The high spot of the club's activities is the 
weekend hike in the Smoky Mountains once each 

Men's "M" Club 

The Men's "M" Club is open to all varsity letter- 
men, and male members of the coaching faculty. The 
purpose of the organization is to further the bonds 
of athletic brotherhood on the Maryville campus, to be 
of service to the school and the athletic program, 
and to increase loyalty to the best interests of 
the College. 

Disc Club 

The Disc Club was organized in 1936 to encourage 
music appreciation. Its organization is very informal, 
and all students who wish are considered members. 
Half-hour programs of music representative of various 


periods and styles are presented twice monthly after 
the evening meal. 

Future Teachers of America 

Jasper Converse Barnes Chapter of the Future 
Teachers of America was organized in the spring 
of 1949. All students planning to teach are eligible 
for membership in this club which is affiliated with 
the National Education Association. 

B. G. 

This is a small club of eight campus girls 
who keep the meaning of their initials a secret. 
At the end of each year two freshmen and one 
sophomore are elected members. Originally organized 
for hiking, the club today is purely social. 

Business Club 

The Business Club was formed for the purpose 
of promoting a better understanding of sound business 
practices and to give its members a wider acguaintance 
with the various fields of business and the opportunities 
and possibilities that they offer. This is done through 
semi-monthly meetings at which different business 
leaders talk to the group and films on various 
phases of business are shown. Although membership 
is limited to majors in business administration and 
economics, its meetings are open to anyone interested 
in the field of business. 

Music Education Club 

The Music Education Club is affiliated with the 
Music Educator's National Conference as Student 
Members Chapter 383. Membership is open to all 
students interested in teaching music. Meetings are 
held the first and third Thursdays of each month. 



Opportunities for creative writing ore offered 
through the various college publications. Many who 
are interested in journalism gain valuable experience 
by serving on the staff of the college newspaper, 
annual, or M Book. 

Highland Echo 

The Highland Echo is the college newspaper, 
usually published weekly. Freshmen and other nev/ 
students are welcome and urged to try out for staff 
positions if they are interested. At the end of each 
college year, staff promotions are made on the 
basis of writing, interest, and dependability. The 
Echo constitution limits the number of staff members 
from each college class. The editor is elected by the 
staff, and is usually a senior. Chief purpose and 
policy of the Echo is to present campus news as 
interestingly and as thoroughly as possible. 


The Chilhowean is the annual year-book which 
is published by members of the junior class. It gives 
a vivid account in pictures of the outstanding events 
of the year as well as individual pictures of almost 
all of the student body. 

Alumni Magazine 

The Alumni Magazine sends news of the College 
and alumni to former students of the College. It 
is pubhshed quarterly by the Alumni office. 

M Book 

As you have already discovered, the M Book is 
the little volume you are now reading. It is published 
every year by the YMCA and YWCA and is the 
official College handbook. College rules, customs, and 
activities are described within for the student's benefit. 



If you have any musical ability whatsoever, be 
it singing, blowing a tuba, or playing a violin, 
there's ample opportunity at Maryville to develop 
those talents. The musical program gets in full swing 
with the performance of the marching band at the 
football games and ends with the choir's final anthem 
on graduation day. Recitals which anyone may at- 
tend are given from time to time by music students 
and faculty. 

Vesper Choir 

The Vesper Choir provides good training and 
genuine pleasure for those who are interested in 
singing. It is composed of about sixty members who 
must pass rigid tryouts before they are accepted. The 
group participates in the weekly Vesper services 
and the daily chapel programs as well as presenting 
special programs in Maryville and surrounding cities. 
The choir has sung in many cities of the East, 
Midwest and South. 

AU-Girl Choir 

The sixty girls who compose this group are 
selected by tryouts each semester. They replace 
the Vesper Choir at the Sunday evening service 
a number of times a year. In the fall the Girls' 
Choir combines with the Men's Glee Club to pre- 
sent a sacred concert, and in the spring the com- 
bined groups present a program of secular music. 

Men's Glee Club 

This group consists of about forty men, but 
additional members may be admitted by tryouts 
each semester. The sacred concert in the fall and 
a secular program in the spring are the highlights 
of the year's activities for the Glee Club. 


The students who enjoy playing a musical instru- 
ment are urged to try out for the College marching 


band. The band, numbering about fifty pieces, ploys 
for all the home football games and takes one out- 
of-town trip with the team. For freshmen and sopho- 
mores the marching practice takes the place of the 
physical education requirement. When football season 
is over, the marching band reorganizes as a concert 
band which gives an outdoor concert during the last 
few days before commencement. Don't take the chance 
of not having an instrument for tryouts; bring it along 
with you this fall. 

Last year for the first time in seven years, the 
band appeared in uniform. The authentically styled 
kilts of imported Scotch wool are the pride of the 


Orchestra members are admitted and placed by 
tryouts each fall. They gain valuable experience 
in presenting two concerts of classical numbers 
annually and accompanying "The Messiah." Their 
spring concert features an outstanding music student 
playing a well-known concerto. 

Tau Kappa Chi 

This is a inusical organizcftion for students 
who either are music majors or are taking applied 
music. Its purpose is to promote student and com- 
munity interest in music. The aims are to raise the 
general academic standing of those enrolled in music; 
to provide a goal for all students interested in 
music; to promote thoroughly trained musicianship; 
and to further the understanding of all types of music. 
A general overage of B for the last two semesters is 
required for membership. 

String Ensemble 

The String Ensemble is open to all string players 
in the orchestra. Various programs are given through- 
out the year, both on and off-campus. Programs last 
year included playing dinner music at two banquets, 
a program at a local PTA meeting, and a regular 
music hall concert with a violin soloist. 




The Maryville College Playhouse originated in 
the fall of 1949. In addition to those who are 
qualified as Players, there are many Acprentices 
working toward the position of Player. TJjree out- 
standing plays were pres^wited last year: in the fall, 
Bell, Book, and Candle; in the spring, Christopher 
Fry's The Lady's not for Burning was presented; and 
the Commencement play was Family Portrait. 

Experimental Theatre 

Besides the major plays the Experimental Theatre 
gives several one-act plays during the year. Those 
given first semester were Sleep of Prisoners and 
excerpts from Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, 
Merchant of Venice, and Midsummer Night's Dream. 
The Shakespearian skits were presented in-the-round. 
Second semester, Dark Lady of the Sonnets, Suppressed 
Desires, and The Intruder were given. 


Through the years Maryville has had an outstand- 
ing record in debating and other speech activities. 
Last year our teams performed creditably in five 
tournaments, including the Pi Kappa Delta Provincial 
held at Georgetown, Kentucky. 

Debating is an excellent extra-curricular activity 
in that it develops ability and effectiveness in 
speaking, encourages interest in world affairs, teaches 
one to reason logically, and provides a sense of 
achievement for a job well done. It will be especially 
valuable for those planning to enter the ministry 
or law professions. 

The Varsity squad is coached by various faculty 
members. All students below senior classification are 
urged to come out for debate. The sole requirements 
are interest and willingness to work. Returning 
debaters are composed of students of the three upper 
classes. That many return year after year should be 
proof enough of the worthwhileness and rewards of 



Every boy has at one time or another dreamed 
of being a star in some sport. At Maryville there 
is a fine chance of making that dream a reaUty. 
Maryville is very active in intercollegiate sports 
and also maintains a well organized intramural 
sports program for those who wish to participate. 
For the girls there is a well-developed point system 
whereby they may earn a sweater with an "M" 
or an "MC" monogram. No one is permitted to wear 
other school letters at Maryville. 

Maryville does not buy her athletes. Those who 
participate in inter-collegiate sports earn their places 
on the teams by physical prowess and acceptable 

Athletic Association 

All students and faculty of Maryville College 
belong to the Athletic Association. This organization 
works with the Department of Athletics to help further 
the development of that field. Each spring a president, 
vice-president, secretary, three boys, two girls, and 
two faculty representatives are elected to the Execu- 
tive Board which acts for the Association. The Director 
of Athletics and the chairman of the faculty Athletic 
Committee are ex-officio members of the Board. This 
Board elects managers of athletic teams, makes awards 
to members and managers of men's teams, to members 
of Women's Varsity, and to the cheerleaders. 


Intercollegiate Athletics 

Maryville is known for her strength in minor 
sports. She competes with the best colleges and 
universities in the field. In past years Maryville has 
placed high in wrestling in the Southeastern AAU 
Tournament. The tennis team compiled an excellent 
record, winning all intercollegiate matches but four. 
The cross-country team came through the season 
with a good record. 

In major sports Maryville holds her own with 
colleges of the same size. Through the years she 
has had good records in baseball, basketball, foot- 
ball, and track. 

Let's all support our teams enthusiastically, win 
or lose, because school spirit is part of Maryville's 
athletic program, too. 

Women's Varsity 

As most colleges, Maryville no longer offers 
a women's intercollegiate program; instead there has 
been substituted Women's Varsity. Participation in 
various sports qualifies a girl for a specific number 
of points. Every girl who makes 500 points earns 
a sweater with an "M" on it, those earning 400 
points receive an "M", and those who earn 300 points 
are given an "MC" monogram. All women earning 
400 or more points may become members of the "M" 

Girls participating in this program must swim 
twice a month, obey th-e health rules, and exercise 
daily for an hour. Those who play basketball, soccer, 
Softball or volleyball can earn 30 points for each 
team they are on and 20 points for each squad. 
Taking part in swimming, track, tennis, hiking or 
aerial darts can entitle a girl to the maximum award 
of 50 points. Additional points are awarded for sports- 
manship, perfect attendance, and captain or manager 
of a team. 



Every man has a chance to participate in non- 
varsity sports through the intramural program, which 
develops social traits as well as physical fitness. The 
program includes touch-football, soccer, volleyball, 
basketball, swimming, wrestling, track, softball, tennis, 
golf, ping-pong, badminton, and cross country. The 
physical education requirement consists of two hours 
a week of regular gym classes for freshmen, while 
sophomores may either attend classes or participate 
in intramurals. Although not required of juniors and 
seniors, many upperclassmen take active part in the 
fun and recreation which these sports provide.
